(Liberty Bell) – Joe Biden needed 25,000 National Guard troops to stand guard as he was fraudulently sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. The military presence all but solidified the allegations that the election was stolen in the minds of millions of Americans.
A duly elected president doesn’t need 25,000 troops to protect him from the people. That’s why you don’t see this kind of thing outside of North Korea, China, Venezuela and other Communist hells.
Once Biden was done using the National Guard to protect his sham inauguration, he cast them out of the Capitol and forced them to rest in a cold parking garage. 5,000 troops were sent to one parking garage that was equipped with one outlet and one or two bathrooms.
As you can imagine, the backlash for this has been swift and intense and rightfully so. His treatment of the National Guard is a pretty good indication of just how much Biden thinks of our military.
President Trump would never have allowed this kind of treatment of our troops. President Trump loved our military. Joe Biden thinks they’re props.
After national outrage erupted over the treatment of the National Guard troops, they have been allowed back into the Capitol Complex. CNN reports that the Guard will now be permitted to rest in the Capitol Visitor Center.
The after the fact gesture, however, really doesn’t seem to atone for the message that it has sent and not everyone is feeling appeased.
“We honestly just feel betrayed,” one guardsman said when the orders hit Thursday morning. “We were deemed useless and banished to a corner of a parking garage.”
The outrage crossed party lines with Utah Republican Sen. Mike Less announcing an investigation and Illinois Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth vowing to make sure the Guard was allowed back in.
After photographs emerged showing Guard members lying on the cold concrete parking lot floor and leaning up against concrete pillars, lawmakers and pundits across the country expressed anger.
Breitbart’s John Nolte pointed out, “The Geneva Conventions expressly forbid forcing prisoners of war from sleeping on concrete, or in parking garages,” yet it seemed to be just fine for our troops.
He went on to say that there were even further violations of the Geneva Conventions Act of 1964, though these aren’t actual violations since the Act is written in regards to prisoners of war, nonetheless, our own troops deserve much better.
He noted that troops were left in conditions that were “Not adequately heated, Not well ventilated (exhaust fumes), No suitable bedding, No sufficient blankets.”
One military source told Turning Point USA that President Trump invited troops to stay in his hotel in DC.
MILITARY SOURCE IN DC:
“For the last week my battalion has been sleeping on the floor in the Senate cafeteria. Today the Senate kicked us out & moved us to a cold parking garage.
1 power outlet.
This is how Joe Biden’s America treats solders.”

This is absolutely unacceptable and despicable treatment of our brave and dedicated National Guard who answered the call to serve.
We need to demand answers now and this needs to be fixed immediately. https://t.co/FyNUpFYJyX

If the guardsmen need space, we all have empty office space right now. I’ll offer mine up in a heartbeat. I’m talking to colleagues now to identify more space.

Yeah this is not okay.
My office is free this week to any service members who’d like to use it for a break or take nap on the couch. We’ll stock up on snacks for you all too.
(We’re in the middle of moving offices and it’s a bit messy so don’t judge, but make yourself at home!) https://t.co/JyEvC4kg6o

A few state governors have ordered their troops to return home including Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu.
US Capitol Police apparently ordered the Guards to move and take refuge in the parking garage but acting Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman insists the order did not come from him.
“I want to assure everyone that, with the exception of specific times on Inauguration Day itself while the swearing-in ceremonies were underway, the United States Capitol police did not instruct the National Guard to vacate the Capitol Building facilities. And on Inauguration Day, the Guard was notified and encouraged to reoccupy the spaces in the Capitol and CVC at 2 p.m.”
Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) asserted that there was “one uniformed police officer” who gave the orders without authority or going through the proper chain of command. He added, “We are going to be able to identify who that person was.”
President Joe Biden is off to a really great start and it hasn’t even been a full week yet.
