Trump offers DC hotel to National Guard troops who were banished to parking garage

Even after leaving office, President Trump shows his appreciation for those who serve our country.

Over the last several weeks, thousands of National Guard troops poured into the nation’s capital to help protect Joe Biden’s inauguration following the Capitol riot. 

26,000 troops, to be exact. 

However, 5,000 National Guard troops were sent to a parking garage to rest in between their 12-hour shifts, despite cold winter temperatures. 

The U.S. Capitol Police ordered the troops to move their rest area from inside the Capitol to the Thurgood Marshall Judicial Center parking garage, according to Fox News. 

The garage reportedly had one restroom with two stalls, and there was also only one power outlet, BizPacReview reports. 

One Guardsman said that on the day of the inauguration, several lawmakers stopped to take photos with the troops, shake their hands, and thank them for their service. He added, “Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed.”

This decision drew immense backlash from lawmakers, some governors even ordering their troops to return home. 

 

Since then, the troops have been allowed back into the Capitol Visitor Center to rest, and President Trump even offered them rooms at the Trump Hotel. 

Even after leaving office, President Trump shows his appreciation for those who serve our country.

    Trump is missed and even Democrats will tilt in his favour when they’ll see what Biden is doing to this country. “This is not the end” will be a historical phrase as much more is happening from now on. There will be a higher interference in this dirty business generated by the Dems and no weapon, no impeachment, no dirty tricks and accusations work against HIM!

    Speaking of Photo Ops – pretty laughable to see Dr. Jill with a lovely basket of chocolate chip cookies
    passing them out to National Guard. Wonder how she managed to treat the THOUSANDS there.

Portland Reaches Record Homicides Amid Law Enforcement Budget Cuts, ‘We Are Running on Fumes’

Published

on

Portland Police

The brother-in-law of Jacob Eli Knight Vasquez who was murdered by a stray bullet on Friday is begging Oregon’s leadership to “please untie the hands of our law enforcement officers.” Vasquez, 34, was at a pizza bar in the thriving dining scene of northwest Portland, then headed to a bar to get a drink across the street from the tavern where he worked when shots rang out and he was struck by a stray bullet and died at the scene.

Portland police have suffered from budget cuts and are struggling with a force of 128 officers below its authorized strength, despite the rapid increase of crime in the area. “Since August 2020, about 200 officers have left the department” reports the Associated Press. Exit interviews “cited low morale, lack of support from city officials and burnout from months of racial justice protests.”

Vasquez’s brother-in-law Don Osborn echoes the sentiments of many in liberal cities that have actively castrated their law enforcement departments. “I believe if the proper tools were in place for our law enforcement officers, this wouldn’t even have happened,” he said.

The AP writes Vasquez’s murder “in late September was one of the 67 homicides this year in Portland, which has surpassed its previous full-year record of 66 in 1987. And with more than two months remaining in the year, Portland will likely shatter its previous high mark.”

So far in 2021, Portland has experienced over 1,000 shootings. “At least 314 people have been injured by bullets, and firearms have accounted for three-quarters of homicides. Police also attribute much of the gunfire to gangs, fights and retaliation killings, but they are also affecting bystanders.”

“In a metropolis wracked by gang violence, fear and frustration have settled over Portland as stories like Vasquez’s make some wary to go out at night” reports the AP. “Unlike previous years” now innocent people unrelated to gangs are being murdered – “from people mourning at vigils and sitting in cars to children playing in a park.”

Daryl Turner, executive director of Portland’s police union says the city needs to hire 840 officers in the next five years. “We are running on fumes. There’s no way we can investigate thoroughly, and correctly, all these shootings.”

Turner said the increase in violence is related directly to the budget cuts. City leaders slashed $27 million from the police budget last year. $11 million due to the pandemic-caused budget crisis, “a decision that Turner says has cost lives.”

Stacey Abrams Again Claims 2018 Election Was Stolen From Her

Published

Stacey Abrams

Stacey Abrams, who lost her campaign for Georgia governor in 2018 by more than 55,000 votes, suggested that she actually won the election – a false claim she has been making for the last three years.

Abrams made the claim while campaigning for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, who has notoriously claimed for decades that former President Bush actually lost the 2000 presidential election.

“Just because you win doesn’t mean you won,” Abrams said. “We’ve got folks who are ready to take back what they think is theirs, but they are not entitled to our progress. They are not entitled to our justice. They are not entitled to our vote.”

“I come from a state where I was not entitled to become the governor, but as an American citizen and a citizen of Georgia, I’m going to fight for every person who has the right to vote to be able to cast that vote,” she added.

Last week, McAuliffe was asked by CNN’s Dana Bash about claims he has repeatedly made that Democrats “actually won the” 2020 presidential election.
Bash played clips of McAuliffe saying, “Folks, you know it. I know it. They know it. We won that election!” And “We actually won the last presidential election, folks. They stole the last presidential election.”

Bash then asked, “Do you think Republicans stole that election?”

“I wish the United States Supreme Court had let them finish counting the votes,” McAuliffe responded.

McAuliffe has also notoriously embraced the Russia-hoax, claiming that Hillary Clinton did not win the 2016 presidential election because of “treasonous” Americans and Russians were “destabilizing our democracy.”
