Washington D.C. Falls Under Military Occupation?
Pelosi Want's Answers about Troops!
On June 4, 2020 Nancy Pelosi wrote letter to President Trump wanting explanation of National Guard Troops in the Capitol. Excerpt follows:
"We are concerned about the increased militarization and lack of clarity that may increase chaos. I am writing to request a full list of the agencies involved and clarifications of the roles and responsibilities of the troops and federal law enforcement resources operating in the city. Congress and the American people need to know who is in charge, what is the chain of command, what is the mission, and by what authority is the National Guard from other states operating in the capital."
Timeline of National Guard Deployment to Capitol
1-8-21, President Trump deployed federal forces in D.C. There is no statehood separating D.C. from his power. As a territory and not a state, President Trump doesn't have to consult and communicate with certain local officials.
According to the Dept of Defense acting Def Sec Chris Miller & Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, met with President Trump and he agreed to activate the D.C. Natl Guard to support D.C. police (not Capitol Police) with crowd and traffic control before the riot.
Defense Officials Confirm Trump Is Still Commander in Chief...
1-10-21, Pentagon officials have proclaimed that President Trump is still the Commander-In-Chief, despite efforts from members in Congress to have him impeached before his term ends on January 20, 2020. They will not allow Nancy Pelosi’s partisan efforts to interfere with their duty. Dept of Defense officials said:
“Mr. Trump is still the Commander in Chief; unless he is removed, the military is bound to follow his lawful orders. While military officials can refuse to carry out orders they view as illegal or slow the process by sending those orders for careful legal review, they cannot remove the President from the chain of command. That would amount to a military coup.”
3-15-21, * -- On January 8, 2021 [while Trump was still Commander in Chief] twenty-five thousand National Guard Members were deployed to Washington D.C. [for the stated reason] to protect Biden’s inauguration from a threat [that never existed]. Even though nothing had happened since the Capitol Riot and even though the 7,000 troops were already in the city, who had been authorized to use lethal force, were far more than the 2,500 troops fighting in Afghanistan.
Currently D.C. is filled with armed checkpoints. Razor wire topped 9 ft tall barriers that cut off the Mall as the city has turned into Baghdad. There was no reason to deploy 25,000 troops in a government city that already had over 5,000 police officers.
So what's the reason for their presence? To this day what the troops duties were/are haven’t been fully explained. Based on a DHS bulletin from Secretary of the Army John Whitley claiming upcoming events, which he admitted, “we don't know what they are.” As none of the previous excuses, scares and pretexts for the D.C. occupation happened.
The D.C. military occupation is no longer a temporary response to an emergency. Instead it’s becoming a permanent state of emergency with a military occupation that can be deployed even in the absence of presidential authority.
