Via AAN:

On Thursday, the U.S. House narrowly passed a nearly $2 billion measure creating a permanent National Guard force at the Capitol following the incursion on January 6th.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Most Republicans opposed the measure, which passed 213-212, with three Democratic members voting “present” and three opposing the bill. GOP lawmakers cited duplicative spending and objected to a provision that adds the National Guard to the Capitol security force.

It passed a day after Democrats and 35 Republicans voted to create a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 riot.

The Capitol perimeter has been protected by an 8-foot fence since shortly after Jan. 6. That day, hundreds of angry protesters supporting [45th] President Donald Trump pushed their way into the building, smashing doors and windows and injuring overwhelmed police officers in a quest to track down lawmakers voting to certify Joe Biden the winner of the presidential election.

Democrats tried to impeach President Trump for supposed “incitement of insurrection” to no avail, with the U.S. Senate rejecting the impeachment measure and voting to acquit Trump on all charges.

During his speech at the ellipse in front of the White House on January 6th, the 45th President directed the crowd explicitly to march “ over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” He did not call for violence in any way, at least not verbally.

The Democommies who are going all out to eliminate we the people’s constitutional right to bear arms have no qualms about creating a militarized zone of our nations capital for their self protection. Once again it is “do as I say, not as I do”. What hypocrites!!!

Is this the same House that wants to defund the police? WOW sounds like Congress is Speaking with a forked tongue. I have a great idea for security for the Capital. Close the Gates and padlock the gates, during the session and once that is done turn off the electric power.
That way Congress Loudmouths will be safe.

What are these wussy’s afraid of for God’s sake!!!
These goofs, who we run to vote for each November, have people still locked up in solidarity confinement since January for “trespassing”!!!
But they could care less about the thugs who looted and burned down our ghetto cities last summer!!!!
And stupid people who suck oxygen here will re-elect them guaranteed!!!!!!

The fence and “hand picked” national guardsmen loyal to the commie bastards are needed to enforce the coup when truth comes out about the election and covid.

One problem. Those were not Turmp supporters that broke into the white house. According to the FBI timeline, Trump was still speaking when they broke into the Capitol. Then Trump supporters had to walk a mile after that to the capitol. Antifa website told members to wear trump hats and infiltrate his group. They went in early instead. They invited BLM, Proud Boys, Insurgents USA, and Peace Keepers.. I wa snot Trump people.

Yup, a very dear friend was there, and that’s his report and EXACTLY the timeline he suggested. TIMELINE is key to this lie. This was antifa, blm, and Q-anon (who, of all conservatives I know, has no clue of who they are).

That would seem to be a slap in the face of the Capitol Police. But not to worry. They’ll still have pickpockets, speeders, agency buildings, The Smithsonian, the Mall, personal protection for Maxine Waters, Pelosi, et al., and of course presidential caravans to Jeni’s Ice Cream.

I wonder why ANY Republican voted for this bill? I wish all Republicans could grow spines and remember why we voted for them.

And just when are the Democrats going to quit lying? Now they say, “He did not call for violence in any way, at least not verbally”. I suppose Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are now going to claim that Trump instructed people to use violence and invade the Capitol building – via telepathy? Maybe they can get their slaves in the MSM to make the claim for them. Americans simply MUST face the facts of reality – democrats are full of lies and “no damn good”.
