At least 5,000 National Guard troops staying in DC until March

The run up to President Joe Biden’s inauguration saw Washington, D.C. flooded with security personnel, including thousands of National Guard troops.

But as the Washington Examiner reported this week, many of those troops are still in the city, and that has some wondering why.  

Some 13,700 Guard members remain deployed and roughly 5,000 are expected to stay for months longer, according to the Examiner.

“A deterrent”

Examiner reporter Abraham Mahshie spoke with one California guardsman who said that he understood his role as being “a deterrent.” When asked when the deployment would end and they could go home, he responded, “I’d like to know that.”

Mahshie also reported that he witnessed a Capitol Police officer asking to see a journalist’s credentials and then telling the reporter “to direct questions to the agency’s press office.”

National Guard Bureau spokeswoman Nahaku McFadden said that the number of troops would be “drawing down over the next couple of days.”

“A particular, singular individual may not know exactly when they may be leaving, but for the National Guard, we’re staying here through mid-March,” she added.

Guard members mistreated

According to the Examiner, “The National Guard deferred questions about the threat assessment requiring the protection to the FBI.”

However, an FBI official told the Examiner, “It’s interesting that they would push you to us for that one. We do do threat assessment. We’re deferring to National Guard and Secret Service on whether National Guard thinks that they need to be out there.”

A scandal erupted last week following a report from Politico which revealed that 5,000 guardsmen were sent out to sleep in an unheated parking garage after serving to protect the inauguration.

One guardsman said, “Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed.”

That news, along with a decision to investigate guardsmen over their political beliefs has some state governors outraged, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who called it “very disrespectful.”

      1. All because of Bidumb doing EOs thstvar totally inappropriate fur the good if We The People and following money back to them through the different nations that are being given money for stupid things yet coming back to those that are in political fields here in the United States. Not only dictatorship But bureaucracy that has no legal standing.

    1. They are both needing impeachment themselves!!! And at least one should be going to jail if there is truly justice in America.


    1. Who is President of this country anyway if Texas does leave I will be moving that way in a short God Bless America & American we need it

      1. Obama is the one telling Biden what to do I believe, and of course Kamala tells him what to do as when he said he did not know what he was signing, she said SIGN IT. He could have been signing away this country and those who lean toward communism and China are cheering him on. Remember the senator that had the Chinese spy lover? Pelosi gave him access to our secrets and will not remove him, so China knows our weak and strong points via Pelosi.

  3. I find it disturbing that our national guard personnel are being treated with such disrespect. They are just as important to our nation as the politicians they are there to protect.

  4. Actually Doug, they are far more important than the politicians, “any day of the week”. The Guard actually serves a purpose in this country, more than I can say for the likes of many of the politicians!

  5. These National Guard troops are our first and last line between being over taken by a foreign power or surviving the onslaught. A brand New Democratic. Leadership, right out of the box, disrespects every thing they ever stood for and then treats them like barn yard swine sleeping on a garage floor. THINK ABOUT THIS ?! This new government Will have just about as much respect for us normal citizens as some of the far Eastern countries who stack dogs in cages and then serve them as a delicacy for the rich. THINK hard and very quickly about this very near possibility.

  6. Truth is the National Guard is being retained to give guided tours because the conservatives stole all the “THIS WAY” lines off the Capital building floor and now Pelosi Schiff and Schumer keep getting lost. Word is they found Biden hiding in his basement.

  7. When you live under a Liberal regime…. the only thing that matters is the Liberal Agenda.

    The National Guard is in Washington to protect the Elites from the little people who pay them to not represent them.

  8. Leftists are emboldened by the ease of stealing the election. They think themselves above the law since they’ve committed high treason with no consequence. Now they are in the process of declaring their regime is above criticism by 80 million disenfranchised citizen voters with charges of domestic terrorists one and all. The military could stand down and allow citizens to change this egregious travesty of fraud and ineptitude back to our Constitutional Republic.


  10. I would like to think the National Guard is kept in DC by these pack of thieves, until the table of justice turns on them and the guard is in place to keep these pack of heathens from getting away when thier corruption is revealed and the time comes for justice to be served for their Treason! against the American people. May they all fall into the pit they dug for our President, Donald J. Trump!

  11. Please don’t call what happened on 20 January 2021 the “inauguration” of a President of the United States. What happened was the installation of the new head of the deep state regime by troops loyal to the deep state at a Capitol surrounded by guns and barbed wire, with the exclusion of the legitimate voters’ choice. What happened was the death of the Old Republic.

  12. March 4, 2021, watch for it. Be calm and it’s about to hit the fan. Notice the fence around the dspital is locked from the outside and the wire is leaning inwards. Remember that date, March 4, 2021.

  13. Every stop and think about where they have fence and razor wire at top of fence? And have sercuety all around ? And going to be there for indefinite amount of time.

  14. 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 .

  15. To my understanding the Federal Government requests the state to supply the deployment of the National Guard from the state governor, so who are the governor’s that are supplying the troops? Trump was denied the help of National Guard in Seattle, DC, New York and attacked for using them in Portland to protect Federal Buildings.

  16. Biden, you need more troops than that, National Guards dont like you either . With all your Executive Orders and the National Guard around the Capital it looks like Germany , World war 2 , or maybe China NOW 2021.

  17. EVERYONE KEEP THE FAITH TRUMP WILL BE BACK SOON! Biden is not the legitimate pres, therefore has NO power to do anything. Research NESARA that is what is happening-the USA will /is going to be a REPUBLIC with Trump as the President. The Military is in charge right now because Trump implemented the Insurrection Act. PLEASE read/listen to Lin Wood and Mike Lindell for valid/true info on what is happening.

    1. Thank You, ‘Berrylady’!!! I was about to write something of that myself. You saved me the trouble. You are ‘right’ about that. ‘B’ had to be ‘inaugurated’ to establish his ‘illegitimacy’ of office. In other words–‘commit’ himself to the actual ‘act’ of taking office, not just the ‘intent’. All this ‘had’ to occur in order to make the ‘next move’. As you say, the ‘government’ is–in truth–in the ‘hands’ of the military. Our ‘military’ are strong supporters of Pres Trump and our country. It is their ‘duty’ to protect us from ‘enemies abroad and ‘with-in’ our country’! It is with that in mind that our ‘former’ government officials ‘saw’ that one day, this might very well happen. Our government ‘usurped’ by an ‘illegitimate’ leader! That is why they established, as you say, the Insurrection Act, to protect us in this event. Jarred Trump said–‘The best is yet to come’!! In his last speech, Pres Trump said–‘The best is yet to come’! Those weren’t empty words. There was ‘meaning’ there. Just waiting, right now. Meanwhile–it’s IS ‘scary’ the damage this ‘illegal’ president is committing. However, it is ‘showing’ everyone just what ‘would’ happen if it had been allowed to continue!!
