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.

Two Illegal Immigrants Arrested For Allegedly Plotting July 4 Mass Shooting

Published

on

Two illegal immigrants in Virginia have been arrested for allegedly plotting a mass shooting on a July 4 celebration after a “hero citizen” overheard a conversation about the plot and called police.

“A hero citizen picked up the phone and overheard a conversation there was a mass shooting being planned here in the city of Richmond, Virginia,” Richmond Chief of Police Gerald Smith said Wednesday.

“Two illegal immigrants, 52-year-old Julio Alvarado-Dubon and 38-year-old Rolman Balacarcel, were arrested and charged with being a non-U.S. citizens in possession of a gun after police uncovered a plot that the duo planned a mass shooting at Richmond’s July 4 celebration Monday,” Fox News reported. “Smith said that police investigated Alvarado-Dubon based on a tip to police by someone he would only refer to as a ‘hero citizen.’ Police investigated the claims and found Alvarado-Dubon was in possession of two rifles, one handgun, and 223 rounds of ammunition. He was arrested on July 1, while Balacarcel was placed under surveillance and eventually arrested on the same charges on Tuesday.”

Smith also addressed reports that one of the suspects has been deported several times but continued to illegally reenter the United States, saying it was “frustrating” that a person could repeatedly break the law and still be able to plan out a mass murder.

The news comes as illegal immigration has reached the highest level on record with nearly 240,000 migrants being encountered by border officials in May.

“There were an unprecedented 239,416 migrant encounters at the Southern border in May, CBP reports. This is the highest monthly total in DHS history, beating the record that was set the month before in April w/ 234,088,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin wrote on Twitter.

National Public Radio Discontinues Reading the Declaration of Inependence

Published

A post by Todd Starnes alerts that National Public Radio (NPR) has ditched its annual ritual of reading the Declaration of Independence. NPR, derisively referred to by Starnes as “National Public Welfare Radio,” announced the cessation of reading the Declaration. Which staffers at the taxpayer-funded radio network had been reading aloud the document since 1988.

The void that would have resulted from not reading the Declaration was not unfilled. “Instead, NPR broadcast an 11-minute conversation about whether or not the Founding Fathers actually meant the words “all men are created equal.” Here’s a link if you’d like to listen to their “screed” (which also reminds us frequently that many of the Founding Fathers owned slaves).

Starnes disclosed that he owns “KWAM, the leading news talk radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. It angers me that my tax dollars are used to prop up a broadcast competitor that spits on our Founding Fathers and our Founding Documents.”

Interestingly, NPR’s newly voiced contempt and cynicism for the Declaration of Independence does not encompass refusing taxpayer-funded government support. Whether or not the Founding Fathers meant what they said and what they wrote may be grist for energetic banter on a radio program that is increasingly committed to shrill progressive virtue signaling. However, the topic of this discussion among smug well-remunerated media activists is irrelevant. The words of the Founding Fathers have been inspirational for two hundred and forty-six years and have been the moral and legal foundation used to free the slaves and develop Constitutional principles to ensure that slavery can never be implemented in this country. Slavery currently exists in several countries now, but NPR is dedicated to ignoring that scourge.
