‘Looks like a war zone’: Thousands of National Guard troops still in DC

Although nearly a month has passed since rioters stormed the Capitol building and almost two weeks since President Joe Biden took office, thousands of National Guard troops remain stationed in the District of Columbia.

This fact has left some lawmakers questioning whether all the additional security is still necessary, including freshman Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), who recently complained that Washington looks like “a war zone,” Breitbart reported

Tuberville made the remarks during an interview with Mobile, Alabama radio station FM Talk 106.5 on Friday.

“It’s a shame”

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” the senator told the host, according to Breitbart. “We’ve had 25,000 National Guard people there, I guess for now for three weeks. I guess now we’re down to maybe 10,000 now.

“But we have 20 miles of razor wire all the way around all of the buildings — the Capitol, the Senate buildings,” he added.

Tuberville continued: “These guys and girls have been sleeping outside my office on the floor. We take candy out to them, popcorn. They’ve been MREs. It’s a shame.”

The senator said the troops have been “treated badly,” claiming that there was no planning dedicated to “how are you going to sleep that many people.”

On Jan. 22, a scandal erupted after it came out that some 5,000 National Guard troops had been ordered to sleep overnight in an unheated parking garage after serving to protect the inauguration, as Fox News reported.

Pelosi “dropped the ball”

Tuberville, for his part, also noted the high cost of having so many troops in the city, remarking, “You know, we had troops from all 50 states. We’ve spent millions of the taxpayers’ dollars on this.”

The senator laid the blame for the situation on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), arguing that she “dropped the ball” regarding security prior to the Jan. 6 riot that claimed the life of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick.

“She’s the head of security for the Capitol,” Tuberville said. “Of course, she isn’t going to take the blame for anything. They’re all there, and I think they’re going to stay there through the State of the Union address. But they don’t need to be there.”

Tuberville also expressed frustration over how all Republicans are being smeared because of how the Capitol Hill rioters behaved, saying, “It really disappointed me how people handled that.”

  1. We know that the military is now in control of the country just like in Burma. They had a fraudulent election too. We, the people, will take it back. That’s why there’s military there. The traitors are fixin to be outed and we can’t wait for justice to be served.

    1. AMEN AND AMEN TO THAT…WHAT A BLESSING THAT WILL BE WHEN IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THESE TRAITORS.WHO GET KICKED OUT ONE BY ONE
      GOD BLESS TRUMP AND GOD BLESS AMERICA. URGENT PRAYERS FOR THIS TO HAPPEN.

    2. I sure HOPE the military is in control of Washington D.C.

      I am a non-denominational CHRISTian that goes to Calvary Chapel and listens to the international CHRISTian Satellite Network CSNRADIO .com SEVEN days a week especially Monday – Friday. I even listened to it in Germany 🇩🇪 and Hungary 🇭🇺 !

      I LIVED IN, not just visited communist China 🇨🇳 in 2010 . So I KNOW how bad it is to live under communism and I am doing EVERYthing I can here to stop it from coming here. Venezuela WAS a wealthy, prosperous country until it became communist as a 3rd world country with people eating out of garbage cans !!! In China, I attended a university that not only can one get a master’s degree in Marxism, but it had a statue of Chairman Mao in its front yard.
      ( I was fortunate to stumble upon ONE toilet at the university. Every other restroom had stinky porcelain holes in the ground we had to squat over. Upon entering the front entrance to the university and near the plush 28 story building I lived in, the stench was so bad, you had to hold your nose. Electrical wiring hung from the ceiling of the two buildings too. )

      To quote Eskify, “ Through communist policies he starved millions of people, possibly as many as 80 million. He killed any intellectuals who disagreed with him, he put people in labour camps, and condoned beating and stoning people to death in struggle sessions.“

      I saw the plans of the left on their own letterhead paper to murder us, especially the seniors and disabled, and the vaccines 💉 is just one of the ways. ( To build your immunity, eat foods made from GOD like fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, and walnuts. Take a healthy vitamin-mineral drink, Zinc, Elderberry, Vitamin D-3, and Vitamin A daily. Get 8 hours of sleep daily and exercise. I don’t wear a mask because it’s unhealthy unless I am forced to in which case I wear an accepted face shield so that I can breathe AND I am trying to make a political and health statement by NOT wearing one. We are NOT cows waiting for the slaughter. We are humans who can reason. ) Read the first sentence of the Georgia Guidestones also known as Georgia Stonehenge supported by the left elitists .

      1. Thank you for your post. Also for advising Elderberry. It is an amazing, ‘old time’, berry. It doesn’t ‘cure’ virus infections but it is an amazing ‘preventative’ and ‘more’. I did the research on ‘how it works’–incredible. It is effective on ‘all’ virus!

    3. I am hopeful you are correct. This election was proven to be a FRAUD, and for some reason, “judges”, (even SCOTUS) “investigators”, “representatives” (that are ignoring their sworn oaths of office) all seem to be either BRIBED or (just like all communist “takeovers”) they, and their families were all THREATENED if they do not IGNORE the mountains of evidence (including VIDEOS, and sworn affidavits) or refuse kowtow to the new communist agenda OPENLY shoved down our throats by rampant voter fraud, and crooked “deep state operatives”, hell-bent on turning this constitutional republic into a third-world communist-controlled banana republic CESSPOOL.

  2. I think that the soldiers need to go home. it is a huge disgrace to see these men and women sleeping on floors in garage no heat no decent food no beds no laundry Biden and Harris should b e made to to do the same

  4. Pelosi is so scared Good for her and Im glad she s chicken little The old witch and bag,, She s such a waste of a human bean Oh she s not human with a big mouth.. black heart she has.

  5. polosi is not going to take blame for anything..she gets by with lying cheating hurting people creating a riot, hate hate hate killing babies, her hate is so great that the devil is considered loving..but in the end , she will have to pay for it.’God is love and she is not that.

  6. These troops may well be a permanent fixture of His Fraudulency’s police state, and we will probably see major deployments of troops-turned-marshals with arrest powers for roundups in various parts of the country as the realization sinks in that the First American Republic is dead and we are now a dictatorship under Chinese control. When this sinks in there will be widespread disorder, and you may be sure that the illegitimate puppet regime will not handle it with the kid gloves used for the anarchist-communist-black supremacist riots last summer (or when they make their seasonal comeback this year). Down with the dictatorship! Biden delendum est!

  7. After the “Military Coup in Myanmar Biden decides he can’t be out done so: Thousands of National Guard troops added to DC, ‘Looks like a war zone’. Note: Typically a large Military buildup in a Nations Capitol is the pre-text of a Military Coup to replace the standing Government. Not really sure but it appears Biden is setting up a Coup against ….Himself?

  8. Sounds like Germany and looks like Germany They are getting ready to take your guns and if you don’t give them to them they will arrest you and put you in a consuntratsion camp

      1. NO! NO!—‘Big, Bad ‘Orange Man’ was ‘Hitler’, remember??? Now he’s gone and ‘Santa Clause’ has come to town, handing out EO’s and ‘broken promises’. Be ‘good girls and boys’ and say ‘Thank You’!!

  9. Something nefarious is in the works! There is NO need for all those troops in d.c., unless the demonrats are up to something! Dictator Biden and cohort harris know they are illegitimate! They intend to use the national guard against us!

  10. PELOSI IS A TRAITOR to our country ,I hope and pray these troops NEVER open up on patriots like myself ,pelosi only uses our military when it suits her needs and I hope that these troops are aware of that DEMOCRATS ARE THE BETRAYERS OF OUR CONSTITUTION

    1. Pelosi was given a lesson in politics by a military man. When she tried to give him an ‘order’, he reminded her that ‘she’ was in no position to do so!! He takes orders only from the ‘president’. With a ‘false’ president in office–he doesn’t take orders from ‘him’ either. So, Nancy can’t go through Biden–as she plans to. A very ‘interesting’ 2 months coming up.

    2. I am thinking that if the national guard opens up on citizens. That there are enough veterans that served the military, that will take up arms against them. There are too many of us vets the national guard would not survive.

  11. PELOSI IS A TRAITOR to our country ,I hope and pray these troops NEVER open up on patriots like myself ,pelosi only uses our military when it suits her needs and I hope that these troops are aware of that DEMOCRATS ARE THE BETRAYERS OF OUR CONSTITUTION VUUKL VUKKLE NOT A DUPLICATE PUT IT UP NOW

  12. The Dermocrats are probably planning another riot at the state of the union address, just like they probably planned the one on the capitol.

    1. They would need a crowd of ‘innocents’ to do that. Hopefully, we have learned our ‘lesson’ and only BLM, AntiFa and ‘terrorists’ will attend. That way, any ‘arrests’ made will be of the people ‘needing’ arresting. Of course, once discovered ‘who’ they are, they’ll be released again as ‘protestors’.

  13. This is all due to PELOSI PARANOIA. SHE IS A CERTIFIED NUT. SHE HAS DONE SO MUCH EVIL IT IS CATCHING UP TO HER. I PRAY SHE CAN’T SLEEP AT NIGHT UNTIL SHE ASK GOD AND AMERICAN TO FORGIVE HER!!!!!!

    1. Pelosi is a nut case and will continue to make our lives miserable. She hates us people. And yes she has done so much evil and will keep on doing it until “WE THE PEOPLE” stop her. I am sure she sleeps well at night. And I don’t think us American’s will ever forgive her for what she is doing to us. She has no conscious, and she will keep doing what she wants, and I am sure she does not pray and could or will ever care about what she does to us Americans. God Bless us American’s and our country. Amen

  14. China Biden, Fascist/Nazi Harris and the Pelosi Communist Oppression is here.
    Ending Free Speech and fair elections, Just like China
    How bad is it going to get

  15. Trump was transparent when he spoke to us…..hidin lying biden and crazy nancy putting our own troops between us and them! Look at recent protests in russia and you’ll see it looks identical to dc ….riot troops fences what the hell is next public execution of trump supporters!

    1. I m Still Wondering How One Wins The I wont say HIS NAME MY PRESIDENT, FROM HIS BASEMENT AND HIS VICE FAKE FROM HER KNEES?? PLEASE TELL ME>>

      1. Trying to figure that out too ..how do you take first out of primaries because of unpopularity to become the second in command soon to be president of our country and pair her up with mentally declining senior …. something us more than rotten..

  16. the democrats, are in charge, that says it all to me, disrespect for are troops . wish i could talk to nan. face to face. sick unit!!!!!

  17. What is going on in Washington is a big shame ! They are trying to show the Republican are to blame . It is the Demos.

  18. The democrats are running scared and it’s Pelosi. They don’t want a wall but she wants to make damn sure she protected and just where is our military supposed to sleep and eat through all this in parking garages again? She’s pathetic. 👎🏻👎🏻😡

  19. If Pelosi was on top of things 1/6 wouldn’t have happened – think she wanted the unrest so she could do what she does best – play the BLAME GAME!!!!
    If she feels so unsafe time to fly back on her private jet to her walled compound in San Fran she WILL NOT BE MISSED!!!
    TAX PAYERS PAYING FOR ALL THE TROOPS TO BUILD WALLS & surround with wire but CLUELESS JOE SAYS TEAR DOWN OUR WALLS!!!

    1. It was planned, she was in on it. The fbi told them the day before that something was in the works. She told most of the capitol police to stay home, and the DC mayor didn’t bother to call in any extra help….both knowing there were gonna be hundreds of thousands of people there. They are a huge part of what happened.

  20. If you, Democrats, have to have all of these soldiers to protect you from the people, did you steal the election from the people and now need protection from the people??

  21. I think you all are on the wrong track. The military is in control of the country by order of President Trump and our Constitution. There are arrests to be made that we have been waiting on for a year. Remember!!! Stop worrying about the troops, get arrangements made for your families, we are going into some hard times for awhile. Get food and family needs stocked for several months and what weapons you have to protect your families in case you have to protect them. And pray daily for President Trump, the troops, We The People and our great nation. Thank our Almighty God for all we have and ask HIS protection for all of us against any evil that may raise it’s cruel selfish head.

  22. I dont just want them kicked out , I want them prosecuted and put in jail for treason! And if it is warranted, I want whatever justified sentence carried out to the max!!!

    1. So do I want the prosecuted and put in jail for treason, and I think all of us American’s want that. But it never seems to happen. Look what Obama and Hillary got away with, and they should be locked up forever. They all seem to get away with it. I hope all the voter’s who voted Biden in are happy with their choice. He is a worthless piece of crap He is NOT MY PRESIDENT.

  23. IF THE MILITARY IS IN CHARGE OF THE COUNTRY THEN WHY DONT THEY START ARRESTING IDIOTS LIKE biden harris piglosi shumer shift hoyer waters swalwell cohen all commies. ISNT THE MILITARY SUPPOSED TO DEFEND THIS COUNTRY FROM TERRORISM FORGIEN AND DOMESTIC? I TOOK THAT OATH WHEN JOINING THE SERVICE SO WHAT ARE THEY WAITING FOR? THESE SCUM IN THE WH ARE DEFINATELY DOMESTIC TERRORISTS AND COMMUNISTS. DONT WAIT ANY LONGER

  24. It’s up to the Governor’s to say enough is enough. Florida Governor has some strength. Respect, Duty, Self Less Service, Honor. These are what the Democrats hate. If you are not supporting our troops, America, Constitution, the Flag. Get the hell out.

    1. I AGREE WITH YOU. GET RID OF THE DEMOCRATS, BUT THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR HIM ARE PLAIN IDIOTS AND I HOPE THEY ARE HAPPY WITH THEIR VOTES, BECAUSE AMERICA IS GOING DOWN, THANKS TO THEIR VOTES.

  25. The politicians are SCARED.
    When voted representatives turn their backs on citizens, disregard the rule of law, ignore the US Constitution, and refuse to protect citizens, then its the citizens civic duty to proect themselves,
    country, and Constitution, against foreign or domestic entities.
    This is why barb wire is around the peoples’ house and US military is still entrenched. Citizens should not be afraid
    of government; government should be afraid of the citizens.

  26. A third world government terrorist take over.

    1. Rule by executive order
    2. Putting a predecessor on trial.
    3. Censorship of opposition.
    4. Attacking the private sector.
    5. Exploiting identity politics.
    6. Challenging judicial independence.
    7. Purging former officials
    8. Encouraging a slavish media.
    9. Military in the streets.

    I am terrified.

  27. Reading about how ‘Pelosi’ is ‘terrified’. True but here’s another ‘take’ on that. The ‘self-centered’, Drama Queen, AOC is going to the press with her ‘story’ of the conflict at the capitol. She says she heard people saying, ‘Where is she? Where is she?’ Can you believe she actually thought they meant ‘her’??? She thinks she’s ‘that’ important that they were searching for ‘her’!!! OMG!! Then, not to let an opportunity go by to dramatize the event and bring it to the ‘news’, she accuses Ted Cruz of trying to have her ‘murd*red’ by means of the riot. You know, AOC, you seriously are NOT THAT IMPORTANT!!!
