Troops, fencing in DC is an attempt to distract from Pelosi’s security failure on Jan 6, Alabama lawmaker says

The Capitol complex in Washington, D.C., under the direction of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), has come to resemble an armed camp in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, adorned with razorwire-topped fencing and patrolled by thousands of National Guard troops.

Rep. Jerry Carl (R-AL) thinks all of this heavy-handed security is a purposeful distraction from Pelosi’s prior failure to properly secure the Capitol complex ahead of the Jan. 6 protests that spiraled out of control, Breitbart reported.

The congressman noted that it was Pelosi, as Speaker of the House, who bears the ultimate responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the complex, including ensuring there is an appropriate level of security.

Pelosi “ultimately responsible” for Capitol security

Carl’s remarks came during a recent interview on “The Jeff Poor Show” on Alabama’s FM Talk 1065, when he said, “I think January 6 — Pelosi is trying to cover up her involvement in that.”

“She should have played a larger role because she is ultimately responsible for that security,” the congressman continued. “I think she’s trying to distract from that, so she doesn’t take any heat for it.”

“Not for a minute do I think she would encourage it. That’s not what I’m saying,” Carl said. “But I think she left security very, very weak for obvious reasons. I think a lot of this stuff is pure distraction. I think she’s pulling away.”

Playing it up for political purposes

Lifezette reported that Carl went on to say that Pelosi’s post-riot actions seemed geared toward playing to her base of support, be it the Hollywood elite or leftist institutions, even though those groups have “always supported her” no matter what she has done.

“You know, hindsight is 20/20. I don’t want to blame anybody,” Carl said. “The people that came here to do harm — we need to take care of that. We need to prosecute that. We need to make sure they’re accountable.”

“But you know, when they talk about insurgents of people — so many of those were sightseers. That’s what these reports are bringing out,” he continued. “There may have been 50 or 100 characters, but everybody else was just sightseers. They followed the crowd, the group effort of just moving in one direction.”

Capitol occupation costing taxpayers dearly

“We should have done a much better job,” Carl said. “But the way Nancy Pelosi responds — we’re spending $2 million a week for a high fence with razor wire with our National Guard, which we stop and talk — everyone tries making a point of thanking them for their service.”

“You know, we take them from their families, from their jobs. I don’t know what it’s costing us outside of D.C. But here, it costs us $2 million a week for that fence to be up and those guardsmen to be on the frontlines,” the congressman added.

Pelosi has transformed the nation’s Capitol into a militarized zone in what increasingly appears to be a dramatic and politicized overreaction to a horrifying, yet one-off event, and it is time for the costly charade to end.

  1. If any one group wanted to take them out they couldnt have stopped them and I doubt they could stop them now.

  2. I got a question for you. If a small militia, 1000 well armed men showed up to open those barriers, would the National Guard open fire on them?
    Simple question. What do you think?

    1. A simple no. Reason! We Americans will not fire on their own. It might be a relative. I remember back in 1985 while doing a project in North Carolina Russian troops were brought into the United States and housed in North Carolina. REASON? Simple as it is today. Russian troops would fire on Americans as they were not fellow Americans. BUT Americans would not fire on fellow countrymen.

    2. Nancy gave them orders to shoot and kill any man woman or child that tries to breech the barriers. She also wanted two machine guns set up on the roof of the capital building. She had all the National Guards vetted to see if any would not fire on citizens of the United States. The simple answer is yes.

      1. This should be or is an act
        of war on it’s owen citizens. Our government is using our Army to kill us if we don’t obey what they say using our money.

        What is wrong with this picture?

      2. Nancy Pelosi was the one who brought in Antifa and BLM and I believe she planned the attack on the Capital just to blame Trump and his supporters. The guy filming was the same one breaking windows and yelling burn it down. Also a friend of Pelosi she has pictures of her family and him in it. Also he is one that goes around where they burn,loot and murder innocent citizens. So it proves Nancy is responsible for the attack on the Capital.

  4. They should be on the border protecting the country from the foreign invasion the dunbocraps have caused. Every state governor should recall their guards.

      1. Pelosi is only worried about herself, she is so evil I would not be surprised if someone doesn’t take it to heart. She will probably want cement walls before long. Hope the governors will bring them home, they are not treated well at all, food wise they are trying to kill them, not a decent place to rest or sleep, if they can’t treat them right send them home.

    1. Yes indeed .Send them home .this is a disgrace.Piglosi is using these military men and women ,who are underfed,freezing and abused for HER GAMES .LOVE THE MILITARY.

  5. Pelosi is an 81 year old women not using any common sense and should be removed as Speaker of the House.. It was her job to provide security and she showed she can’t handle it.

  6. Pelosi is way to old, she is losing it like Biden , hate has finished her. She doesn’t do her work anymore, she is so mentally defective all she can think is how to get rid of the American people.

  7. Piglosi knows she is guilty! So do we! She didn’t protect the capitol because she KNEW what was going to happen( she planned and paid for it) so she could blame and impeach President Trump, and they could ram illegitimate Biden into office! Now she is covering her guilty arse!

    1. that is what I’ve said all along. It will make me a happy happy woman to see this hag go up in flames which I believe will happen soon….she will be joined by many others too!
      tick tock

    2. Absolutely right! She was in on the planning of Jan. 6 and now she is scared to death the American people will come for her she built a fortress around herself. She couldn’t care less about anybody other than herself and her Communist buddies.

  8. What does the constitution say about federal troops being used against the American people,and would fire a gun against your brother,sister,father ?
    Me thinks someone has abused their power.Seems as if an investigation needs to done on her for misuse of action of office !

  9. If the Capitol has a fence around it , our boarder should have a fence around it. We the people need protection too.

  10. You know who tried to get 10,000 military to protect and Pelosi refused imagine that what she is hiding

  11. Pelosi should be put completely out of any office in our government. She is a crazy woman.

  12. Why do they deserve so much protection and they give us none They are letting illegals into our country They maybe carrying the virus but Nancy does not care one bit because none of those people will ever be near her She only cares about her Hey if she dropped dead tomorrow we would be fine and she would not have many that will actually morn for her either She has become a hated woman by all She uses her position to take whatever she wants I remember when she was caught for insider trading Her answer was no it is ok for us this law is for all the other people I wonder who the other people are

  13. THEY SHOULD BE ON THE BORDER, NOT IN DC PROTECTEN WHAT????
    THIS IS SO FUNNY, WHAT ARE THESE POLITICIANS SO AFRAID OFF????
    HIDING JUST LIKE THEIR ELECTED SENILE BIDEN.
    IF THEY WHERE DECENT POLITICIANS THEY DID NOT HAVE TO HIDE. EVERYONE WOULD RESPECT THEM.
    BUT GIVE RESPECT WHERE IT IS DUE. PELOSI RUINING OUR COUNTRY IS NOT IN THIS CATEGORY.

  14. Pelosi should be charged for the riots at the Capital , because she turned down Trump’s help when he wanted to send the National Guards days before the riots, it’s what she wanted to happen so she could blame Trump

  15. National Guard in Washington DC – if Pelosi would have done her job in the first place this wouldn’t be needed – what a waste of manpower when there are other things more important !!! America – what’s happened to you !!!

  16. It’s more then obvious now Democrat’s, can’t govern, Governor Newsom, Governor Cuomo, Speaker Pelosi, the additional Governors who caused the death of thousands of seniors, before their time, and now our biggest joke of all, Joe Biden always rushing to go nowhere and do nothing. It is really time to impeach this guy, have a recall? or force his resignation. Our energy policy about to financially collapse, our southern border overrun with virus ridden illegal’s with thousands more coming. The country more divided then ever and a bunch of radicals controlling purse stings who really never had a business or had to meet payroll etc. spending and taxing like they new what they are doing. The American people what to know your doing acting has a president? The frequency of blank stares has increased, the inevitable is occurring more often, where is this tax payor white house doctor? Has this person ever been approved to serve as President? Where is our country going now ? Are those who know, going to be held responsible for his mental decisions taken? Is the only plan to bankrupt our Country and tear apart all the good that Trump accomplished? Taxes on the rise is that the plan? tax and spend, tax and spend, why because they don’t know how to govern. What Democrat city or State is operating in the black? It/s Resignation time.

  17. How much more do we need to hear & see & prove the woman is CRAZY with HATE for America before we REMOVR HER FROM OFFICR FOR ABUSR OF POWER, INCITING RIOTS, LYIN ABOUT EVERYTHING, PUTTING THINGS IN COVID RELIEF PACKAGE THAT HELPS HER ONLY, this 1/6/21 incident that was all her doing, we could go on & on. In general everything she says or wants is just sick, vile, evil, crazy. Once we get her out we can go after Biden & Harris & the rest of the Dems.

  18. Is anyone really surprised that ANY Democrat or Nazi Soro’s employee would use the tactic of creating a mountain out of a mole hill to draw the Peoples attention away from their wrong doings? REALLY! We’ve seen this quite often during Trumps presidency. Being easily distracted or turning a blind eye/deaf ear is why American is in the downhill crap show we’re in now with Biden/Harris.

  19. Nancy needs to be held responsible for the riot. She had that all planned, they had Antifa there as Trump supporters that started the trouble. Time to take that old bat down.
