WASHINGTON, D.C. – Welcome to Joe Biden’s America. Ahead of the inauguration of Biden as the 46th President of the United States, the nation’s capital resembles a war torn Banana Republic more than the beacon of freedom and liberty in the world.
For four years, Democrats have been telling America “Walls Don’t Work!”. Now, as they get ready to take power next week, they have completely walled in the nation’s Capitol building, fortifying it with walls, barbed wire and barricades. The U.S. Capitol has been surrounded by high fences topped with razor-sharp concertina wire. Heavily armed troops line the perimeter, ready to shoot to kill anyone who breaches security.

The National Guard, requested by the federal government has authority next week to shoot and kill anyone who illegally breaks the perimeter.
“On January 12, 2021, National Guardsmen were given the authorization to be armed in support of the U.S. Capitol Police to protect the U.S. Capitol and individual members of Congress and their staff,” the U.S. Army said. “Guardsmen are trained in the use of lethal and less-than-lethal force, de-escalation techniques, as well as the use of protective equipment. This is standard for civil disturbance response missions. The National Guard is proud to support the Secret Service, U.S. Capitol Police, and Park Police who are leading the security efforts during the events for the 59th Presidential Inauguration.”
Twenty thousand troops will be deployed to the nation’s capital this week. In comparison. America’s 1983 invasion of Grenada consisted of just 7,300 troops. Operation Just Cause, the massive invasion of the country of Panama had 27,000 troops. When communists threatened the nation of Honduras in 1988, it took only 5,000 U.S. troops to accomplish the mission.
