After Two Weeks Of Sleeping On Cold Marble, Congress Boots National Guard To Local Parking Garages

Did somebody really think that armed troops will be removed from the Capitol after the inauguration of the most democratically elected president in the US history?

ZeroHedge reports:

After two weeks of sleepless nights protecting Washington DC from an alleged inauguration threat that never materialized, thousands of National Guardsmen were booted from Congressional grounds on Thursday, where they were forced to sleep on marble floors, and have instead been forced to take their rest breaks in nearby parking garages, according to Politico.

The unexplained move comes after ‘dozens’ of lawmakers posed for photo ops with the troops.

“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” said one Guardsman, who said their unit was abruptly kicked out of the Dirksen Senate Office building into a nearby parking garage with no internet reception, one electrical outlet, and a two-stall bathroom for 5,000 troops.

All National Guard troops were told to vacate the Capitol and nearby congressional buildings on Thursday, and to set up mobile command centers outside or in nearby hotels, another Guardsman confirmed. They were told to take their rest breaks during their 12-hour shifts outside and in parking garages, the person said.

Prominent lawmakers from both parties took to Twitter to decry the decision and call for answers after POLITICO first reported the news Thursday night. Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Senate Majority Leader, tweeted: “If this is true, it’s outrageous. I will get to the bottom of this.” –Politico

In response to the report, several lawmakers have expressed (or feigned) outrage, with several offering the use of their offices to Guardsmen.

According to some Guardsmen who spoke with Politico, there was no clear reason given for the eviction – though one said it that it may have been over a complaint that some troops were not wearing masks, though said that wasn’t the case.

“We have strict guidance that masks are to be worn at all times unless soldiers are eating and drinking.”

Another Guardsman speculated that “There really may be an important reason for us to vacate and it just hasn’t been well communicated yet.

The troops are particularly concerned about being packed in tight quarters with limited bathroom access during a pandemic. At least 100 Guardsmen have tested positive for Covid, according to two Guardsmen. Some are quarantining in hotels.

A spokesperson previously declined to provide a specific number for troops who have tested positive for Covid. –Politico

According to Guard spokesman Matt Murphy, “As Congress is in session and increased foot traffic and business is being conducted, Capitol Police asked the troops to move their rest area,” adding “They were temporarily relocated to the Thurgood Marshall Judicial Center garage with heat and restroom facilities. We remain an agile and flexible force to provide for the safety and security of the Capitol and its surrounding areas.”

The US treats its trailer trash loser military worse than dogs. The greedy repulsive Jews ate their lunch, dinner and futurecomment image.

The rotten corrupt/criminal Fascist AmeriCunt Policlown Establishment Elites/Oligarchs Deep-State + Coup D’éta Puppet Regime kick their filthy Dogs/Slaves out, they despise + piss on them exactly like they despise + piss on the ordinary People + Democracy and the Rest of the World and Humanity.

You have become globalist rabid dogs on leash instead of being defenders of your own dying nation you effing fuckwit’s!!!

Its all the fault of China, as all the sleeping mats and personal chemical toilets ordered by the US military from their Walmart providers were plagued by Chinese
bureaucracy and general stupor :)

It’s also an MSM ‘fact’ that ‘Pootin’ had a black hand in denying the basic rights of the US national guard.

HiaNd

no toilets, no defense ;)

No health and a smelly mess.
The officers in control have to be as dumb as shit. One of the first measures when making overnight camp is to dig latrines etc, and in an urban environment external foul sewer access is always in evidence in a western country.

There is no excuse for these basic oversights and morale will plummet.
Now the world is aware that the US military is ‘All Fur Coat And No Knickers ‘.

HiaNd

obviously officers re trained for 5 star hotel “combat” situations only (with free porn channel on top)

You got it in one :)
Leading men from the front is far too uncomfortable.

The cancel culture.

Well you can see visually what might be happening, put the service members into poorly ventilated spaces and hope respiratory illnesses spread rapidly among them, could very well be the thinking behind it all by the Pentagon.

Show some respect to those brave men, giving them a proper place to sleep is the minimum. Disgusting.
