Well, here we go with the next step in making the DC Police State permanent. – Military.com is reporting today that the National Guard under China Joe Potato Head Biden plans to keep a very substantial force of more than 7,000 Guard personnel in the nation’s capital to defend against gangs of marauding Trump supporters that do not exist.
The plan announced on Thursday originally was to keep this huge military presence in DC through the end of January, but that was mysteriously extended on Friday through the end of March. And at the end of March, it will no doubt be extended again, and it will keep on being periodically extended until the corrupt news media determines it is just a part of the “new normal” and stops remarking on it altogether.
Because that’s how this stuff works in the DC Swamp.
Here’s an excerpt from the story at Military.com:
The National Guard Bureau is working on a plan to call for thousands of volunteers from the 25,600 Guard members in Washington, D.C., to remain on duty in the city until as late as mid-March.
Guard officials announced Thursday that approximately 15,000 Air and Army National Guard troops would begin returning to their home states as early as this weekend.
Over the past two weeks, the massive Guard force flowed into D.C. to reinforce federal law enforcement for Wednesday’s inauguration of President Joe Biden, following the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol that left five people dead.
While the inauguration took place peacefully, the Guard is still supporting requests from the U.S. Secret Service and federal law enforcement. Guard officials said Thursday that approximately 7,000 troops would likely remain in D.C. through the end of January.
As of Friday, the plan is to have up to 7,000 troops remain in D.C. through March 12, but those details are still in the planning stages, a National Guard official told Military.com.
Any Guard members who stay past the original 31-day mobilization order will be on a volunteer basis, and their orders will be modified for the new time frame, Nahaku McFadden, a spokesman for the Guard Bureau, told Military.com.
“We are not going to make anybody stay,” McFadden said.
Ok, guess which 7,000 National Guard personnel will no doubt “volunteer” to remain? Those would be the 7,000 who pledged their undying loyalty not to America, but to China Joe and Kamala and San Fran Nan and the rest of the in-power Democrats during the recent “vetting” of the Guard personnel by the FBI.
Thus does The Swamp create its very own Praetorian Guard. The “new normal” has arrived.
The states start fighting back a little. – On a positive note, some Republican governors have had enough of supporting this nonsense and are starting to fight back a bit. That effort was of course led by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who told reporters early Friday that he had ordered Florida’s National Guard troops to return home, stating that “These folks are soldiers, not Nancy Pelosi’s servants.”

DeSantis, who is quickly emerging as a serious early GOP contender for the presidency in 2024, went on to say that “This is a half-cocked mission at this point and the appropriate thing is to bring them home.”
Much later in the day, increasingly useless Texas Governor Gregg Abbott, who has completely lost his way related to COVID-19 since last summer, woke up and realized he had just missed yet another opportunity to provide some real, actual leadership to DeSantis, decided he’d better call his National Guard people back home, too.
I have instructed General Norris to order the return of the Texas National Guard to our state. @TexasGuard
