Fed Forces Gather

Well, now:

The Department of Defense (DOD) said that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin approved the deployments of the guards, which had been requested by the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) and U.S. Capitol Police (USCP).

“The people who live, work and visit the District are part of our community, and their safety is our first mission priority,” Maj. Gen. Sherrie L. McCandless, D.C. National Guard commanding general, said in a statement to news outlets.

Sure sound nervous about a bunch of truckers, don’t they?  Oh wait:

“Our MPD and USCP partners have asked for our help in ensuring people can demonstrate peacefully and safely, and we stand ready to assist.”

Oh, so they’re going to guarantee the safety of the protesting truckers, are they?  Against whom, precisely?  BLM?  Zombies?  Militant vegans?

Fucking lying bastards.

And since when was the National Guard a “partner” to law enforcement?  (I know, since forever, never mind that pesky Posse Comitatus  thing.)

Anyway, here’s the tally:

The approval will enable around 400 D.C. National Guard members to “provide support at designated traffic posts, provide command and control, and cover sustainment requirements.”

“Sustainment”?  Getting food and such to the protesters?

Guards deployed to the area will not be armed and will not help with law enforcement or carry out domestic surveillance activities.

Pull the other one.  Fool me once, etc.

Austin also approved USCP’s request for assistance for up to 300 National Guard troops from outside the Washington area to help at certain traffic posts and Capitol entry points, Breitbart reports. That will begin later than 7 a.m., on Saturday, February 26, according to Breitbart, who note that 50 large tactical vehicles will also be placed at designated traffic posts on a 24-hour basis in the area.

“50 large tactical vehicles”, eh?  And their purpose is… what, exactly?  How about this:

Police around DC area have told the [National] Guard that the trucker convoy intends to shut down the [DC] Beltway and major roads leading in and out of DC. The Guard is scrambling to secure heavy tow trucks to haul away semis which may try to block roads.

My question (and it’s a serious one):  Are the feds trying to provoke a confrontation?

The evidence seems to support that they are.


  1. 99.99% gov’t propaganda bullshit, almost complete fabrication.
    This is what you can expect from here on out from the largest criminal organization the world has ever known. But don’t despair, it can’t sustain itself and will eventually collapse under it’s own weight. What a day that will be. The burn off will be glorious.

  2. I like how the Canadians are walking around with some empty fuel cans and some are full because the police are trying to stop the truckers from getting fuel.

    The government put a crimp on commerce for two years but that was just fine according to the leftist weasels. When the ordinary citizen does it the left goes extra moonbat crazy.


  3. If you owned a big rig towing company (it’s a pretty specialized thing) would you want to help the goobermint? or at best stay neutral and keep your customer base?

    They’re scrambling to secure tow trucks …right.

    I used to live in the DC area. I think you can count the local big rig towing companies on a few fingers.

  4. I was told (so this is anecdotal) that the Canadian gov tried to get the Tow Trucks in Canada to remove the trucks from Ottawa. Tow Truck companies stated all their operators were off the job due to them having Covid.

    I hope we have the same quality people here.

    1. Yeah, they did. Until Vladimir Poutine invoked the Emergency Act and said “You can either tow the trucks or we’ll confiscate the tow trucks and the rest of the business for supporting domestic terrorists.”

      Tow trucks with no license plates and logos appeared to tow the trucks. This is why the J6 protesters were charged with “insurrection” and being “terrorists”. Those are legal terms that allow all kinds of crap.

      1. I’m old enough to remember when this kind of shit only happened in the COMBLOC.

        Who said Western Civ hasn’t progressed.

        1. None of us (probably) are old enough to remember the “Bonus Army” of 1932 and McArthur & Patton, but read up on it. Just something to think about…

          1. My maternal grandfather, veteran of the trenches in France, was pretty bitter about it. In 1932, he only managed to earn $100 to feed his wife and three children. The promised bonus would have helped. The movie “In Pursuit of Honor” covers it briefly at the beginning.

  5. This foofaraw is a big distraction from other major Buymeden Crime Family fuckups – the latest happening in Ukraine:
    Biden blocked the crucial Keystone XL pipeline, signaling to the world that American energy independence is no longer a priority.
    He then blessed the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, strengthening Russia’s energy hold on Europe.
    In that process, he gave Russia the leverage to create the blood bath unfolding in Ukraine.

    Some say Biden took his actions out of spite for Trump, but Hunter Buymeden recently “received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow,” according to a Congressional report. So we can add treason to gross ineptness, money laundering, hypocrisy and wokeness.
    Time for gallows on the National Mall. Any of those trucks carrying framing lumber?

    1. His name is a two syllable word, with the emphasis on the second syllable.
      The E is pronounced in the European way as an A
      The T is silent.
      Any questions?

  6. “The approval will enable around 400 D.C. National Guard members to “provide support at designated traffic posts, provide command and control, and cover sustainment requirements.”

    “Guards deployed to the area will not be armed and will not help with law enforcement or carry out domestic surveillance activities.”

    Am I the only one who sees the basic contradiction here? Isn’t traffic enforcement and vehicle removal “law enforcement activities?”

    The lyin’ f*cks, from Biden and Pelosi on down, are trying to do what that *ssh*le Trudeau in Canadia, and the War Criminal Putin, have been trying to do: cause a response to their provocations in order to begin a civil war.

    1. Any deployment of NG troops outside of DC will require the approval of the Governors of MD & VA.
      Now, the safe thing to do would be for the convoy to maintain minimum Beltway speed and a constant nose-to-tail spacing.
      Just how many rigs would it take to completely encircle DC on the Beltway with 20-30 feet spacing in the outside lane?

  7. Kim, I’ve said that Posse Comitatus died when Eisenhower sent the 101st to Little Rock. I see no reason to change that view.
