Nancy Pelosi taps D.C. National Guard commander for House sergeant-at-arms

The sizable ongoing presence –at the behest of Democrats – of National Guard troops in the nation’s capital following January unrest has puzzled many, and the latest high-profile government appointment only adds to the unusually militaristic atmosphere that persists.

The Associated Press reported on Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced the appointment of commanding general of the District of Columbia National Guard, Major General William Walker, as a replacement for Paul Irving, the House of Representatives sergeant-at-arms that was forced to resign in the wake of the January Capitol riot. 

Walker notably played a role in dispatching backup troops on Jan. 6 to assist Capitol Police officers who where overwhelmed by demonstrators attempting to enter the halls of Congress. He also testified at a subsequent Senate hearing on the events, saying, “[I] was sickened by the violence and destruction I witnessed that fateful day.”

The move serves to replace Timothy Blodgett, who assumed the sergeant-at-arms role on a temporary basis in January and is the permanent replacement for Paul Irving, who was forced out of the job due to security failures that resulted in Capitol breach, according to Politico.

In tapping Walker for the role, Pelosi noted his 39 years of experience in the military and his time working as a Special Agent with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, which she explained “will be an important asset to the House, particularly in light of the January 6 insurrection,” adding:

It is essential that we work to strengthen our institution and keep our Capitol community, and all who visit, safe.

Walker’s qualifications for the job were echoed by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who praised the “experience, skill set, and vision” he brings to the table, adding that “every member, staffer, employee, and visitor to the Capitol should feel safe with Maj. Gen. Walker at the helm of Sergeant at Arms operations.”

Earlier this month, the Senate also tapped a seasoned military leader, retired Army Lieutenant General and former director of intelligence for U.S. Central Command, Karen Gibson, to serve as its sergeant-at-arms, replacing Michael Stenger, who resigned immediately after the protests on Jan. 6, according to NPR.

Pelosi, for her part, is continuing to probe the events of Jan.6, though her hope of establishing an independent commission to study what occurred is being whittled away by resistance from Republicans in the House who claim that the process as described would be tilted in favor of Democrat members and that the scope of the investigation was over-broad, according to AP.

With thousands of National Guard troops slated to remain in D.C. through at least late May, it seems clear that Pelosi and those on her side of the aisle are unwilling to let go of the false narrative that those who disagree with them politically are poised to launch a violent insurgency at any moment.

What’s she afraid of – her own shadow ??? Using National Guard to protect the capitol is obscene, to say the least !!! America is divided because of politicians – not the American public !!! Whenever politicians act as they are for the American people, not their pocketbooks, maybe we’ll see a change in the attitude of Americans !!! Again – what’s she so afraid of – her agenda ???

Pelosi needs the NG to protect her while she and the other Democrats are are busy undermining the constitution, and violating their oath of office. In other words they are committing treason, and using the NG for protection while they are doing it, by keeping the people out. Who is visiting the capital with the troops all over the place. Maybe a few Chinese?

I believe she fears treachery within the House and Senate more than deceived voters. In a way, the witch with a “b” is being punished because she is living in fear and feels the need to protect herself by a lot of people who actually hate her and the communism she stands for…..

She is not afraid of the Senate or the Congress. This is strictly political. She is pushing a narrative nothing more. This is all theatre and a abuse of power.

Pelosi is the scum bag of all evil. She needs to be impeached and pulled out of the capital by her hair. Tired of this old bag……Desolve the whole Democratic Party! By the way I believe Pelosi and a few other democrats are responsible for the riot. Too many questions about bus loads of people that pushed their way to the capital and started breaking in. She I believe is guilty of treason, bribery and sedition!

NEVER in our history has any President ,ever transformed our Capitol into a Fortress , which says a lot about this “illegitimate” president “and” Fed Government! I know they are creating false flag events to push their gun control threw! They are murdering good Americans just to get their hold on our country even tighter! All i want to know is what is it going to take for Patriots to finally stand up against this Illegitimate President and Government? The left has already murdered too many innocent Americans ,including new born babies!!!!!! They shooting into crowds without a care in the world as the politicians and Hollywood will get them out of prison to re-offend soon enough! All while a poor Patriotic kid (Rittenhouse) has to pay for all the other patriots that are hiding in their homes ,praying others will save them!!!? Its truly sad that in this day and age that a 17yr old man from, small town USA had to step up for all of us! If there would have been more there to fight back we may still have Trump in the White House!!!? Pelosi and the other foul creatures in the swamp we know as DC are not afrade of anything as they dont have to abide by our laws as they get away with theft on a grand scale as well as murder and PEDOPHILIA!!! The left has had an open war on Americans since Trump entered office and nobody is doing anything to stop it! yet they want to take away our guns while letting out hundreds of thousands of violent criminals from prison due to the C19 virus!!! They are openly murdering us as well as criminalizing us all and we are just sitting at home watching it all unfold on T.V.! Its not even just about race if at all but Conservatives in general are evil…….This is the narrative of the left and they will not stop for if they do then WE THE PEOPLE may actually get the JUSTICE we all so want to see! If they happens a lot of these Pelosi’s and Schumers, Shifties and Swalwell’s will ALL HANG! They cant have that now can they? Hell even though Islam has been banned from American soil since 1952 they are serving in our Government at all levels! Even now that the BLM and Antifa have partnered with CAIR and the Moslem Brotherhood they are still not listed as a terrorist group? even aftre all the murders they have committed!!! All i can say is if you own a gun buy all the ammo u can get your hands on and if you dont own a gun may GOD have mercy on your soul!!! May forever and always “only” GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!%

Great comments. Democommies are shooting Americans and creating violence so they can take our guns and we will not be able to overthrow these evil swamp dwellers. Many of the Illegals are armed ; they are not taking THEIR guns!!. Illegals , who don’t want to be stopped, are shooting our border guards on a regular basis and it NEVER even hits the NEWS! Criminals, terrorists , gangs and drug cartel are stampeding into our country along with the other COVID-infested illegals. We the People need to take our country BACK from these commies that forced themselves into our government.

Right now Princess Nancy isn’t afraid of anything since she’s involved in creating a police state. Personally, I wouldn’t be surprised if she, Biden and all their partners in crime were to replace the cops nationwide with the U.S. Army. Then we’ll be living in a full blown dictatorship. From reports I’ve seen, that’s exactly what they’re shooting for. During the Obama administration, FEMA quietly built hundreds of relocation camps. Concentration camps would be a better name. FEMA also very quietly bought thousands of plastic coffins and is storing them. WHY? FEMA also purchased tons of poison gas, exactly the same stuff Hitler used in his concentration camps during WW II. Biden is allowing thousands, soon to be millions of illegal aliens into the country. All those things add up to a very unpleasant future for a lot of Americans sometime in the future.

The American voters are still watching the fake media. They need to wake up and stop watching CNN ABC NBC CBS MSNBC etc. They just take and edit out parts of the story that doesn’t make what King Joe and Queens Kamela and Nancy do or say look bad and then when someone they don’t like or isn’t saying what they want or like they just play the parts of the video that makes them look like an idiot or a tyrant. They do it all the time and they have been getting away with it for a long time. The majority of the people don’tvreally know the whole or real story so they aren’t fighting back like they need to be doing! We need to find the things that they hidingvand get it out there so everyone can see the real picture.

She deserves an Oscar for the BS performance she has been putting on for the Democrats. The only thing she is worried about is being caught for HER PART of the riot on Jan. 6th. Its no wonder she needs the investigative team to be slanted to favor the Democratic party, its the only way to cover up all evidence of her wrong doing.

When elected leaders go rogue and no longer listen to the people they represent it is only natural they would feel threatened and violated. They should concider how the people they represent feel when they no longer feel we need representation above there law making decisions. That is why we have three parts to our government. Let states do they’re jobs and Congress can stay out of our lives. Some just need to get out and go away forever.

IT’s TIME TO DITCH THE WITCH, NANCY PELOSI!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP in DC and DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE ABUSE OF POWER! Can we seriously sit back, do nothing, and allow this vile, evil person to continue her senior role in destroying our country and stripping us little by little of our constitutional rights?

People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

If he were smart, he’d tell Piglose to shove her job offer where the sun don’t shine. He would be acting a a pawn for the Dems unless he really is a left-wing advocate. Dems want a show of force to influence the week minded that they are THE power in the country and many people buy it. I, for one, don’t.

There was no insurrection. If you want to call it a riot, OK. Unlike all the riots of 2020 by BLM and ANTIFA where government buildings were burned to the down, people shot and businesses destroyed, this one simply had people coming into a public building cheering. Those people had no intention of taking over government. There is whole list of things you would do if you were going to take over government and they didn’t do them.

Biden at the border:
This is the mess that a duly unelected president has made for the country. A man who has no idea of what he is doing, and who ever is pulling his strings does not either. They don’t want to call this a crisis that it is challenging, well it is a CHALLENGING CRISIS, a mess of epic proportions that needs a man of epic proportion to solve it. It needs a Trump to trump it. The people now on the thrown have shown that they are not capable of handling the situation, and therefore need to step aside.
