Troops deploying to DC are being scrutinized for political purposes

| January 12, 2021

Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), a retired Army National Guard lieutenant colonel who lost her legs in action in Iraq, has joined fellow veteran Representative Jason Crow (D-CO) in encouraging what can only be described as the first stop in a political purge of the military.

The January 6th Capitol protest attended to by many thousands was, as the media has been telling us all year, “mostly peaceful.” The insurrectionist behavior of a few people at one rally is apparently vastly different than the insurrectionist behavior of a few other people at another rally (or dozens of rallies in dozens of cities across the US, laying weeks-long sieges to government buildings).

Imagine any sitting politician demanding that CID/OSI/NCIS/CGIS open investigations into any servicemembers (including those retired) who have shown sympathies to any other political movement no matter how revolutionary the aims. Off the top of my head, Occupy Wall Street, Antifa, and BLM in recent years.

It seems the Army has acquiesced to these demands. Jeff LPH 3 sents in this Army Times article;

After deadly Capitol riot, Army looking at which troops require security screening ahead of Biden inauguration

The Army is working to determine which National Guard troops assisting the Jan. 20 presidential inauguration require additional security checks, and is also offering more training on threat detection for those Guardsmen arriving to Washington, D.C., in the coming days, according to the service.

“We are working with the Secret Service to determine which service members supporting the national special security event for the Inauguration require additional background screening,” an Army spokesperson said in an emailed response to queries. “The D.C. National Guard is also providing additional training to service members as they arrive in D.C. that if they see or hear something that is not appropriate, they should report it to their chain of command.”

There you have it. If the politburo doesn’t discover your political beliefs, your fellow citizens are expected to report you. The Stasi would be so proud.

    Commissar just blew a load reading that….

    Any more questions about where this is headed?

    • Deckie says:

      His right arm must be massive by now.

      Unless he’s a lefty…

      • ChipNASA says:

        Something came to mind.
        I will still love Glenn Quagmire after this…

        At the risk of offending the sensitivities of our Lionesses and Adorable Deplorables I’ll just opine this:

        spapos, in my opinion, could not beat his meat without giving himself 2 black eyes and a bloody nose. I also don’t think that he would be co-ordinated enough to hold a magnifying glass (only way he can see it) AND a set of eyebrow tweezers (only way he could grab it).

        Good bye American I Loved You. It was my Honor and Privilege to be one of your Citizens and to Serve and Protect Your Constitution. My apologies for the fact that our elected officials were allowed to destroy you from within.

        I think we can all agree that he is a Lefty.

    • OldManchu says:

      He is probably busy making a list of fellow service members to turn in. Troopers who don’t bow down and worship his warped sick beliefs.

  2. E4 Mafia '83-'87 says:

    I think when her helo crashed, some of the debris went through her head and knocked out about 40 IQ points of gray matter. They don’t call them Dumb-o-crats for nothing.

    …Capitol Police to investigate active-duty or retired service members who played a role in what she called a “coup attempt.”…

    She’s telling on herself as she participated in the coup attempt of the impeachment to cover Hunter Biden and the Big Guy’s involvement in yet another overseas pay-for-play scheme. Will she turn herself in? Not holding my breath.

    • MI Ranger says:

      She is just trying to go after the Young Captain from Fort Bragg who participated in the rally and the Retired Air Force Guardsman who was seen hanging out in the House floor with a Kevlar helmet and plate carrier.

      I loved the shot of the E-6 National Guardsman with his hand in his pocket! Would give the CSM/SGMs a fit!!!

      Does anyone else think it is ironic that they are appealing to a man named McCarthy to start the trials for Patriotism?!

  3. SFC D says:

    And these two political fucksticks will use their “military cred” in order to be the experts on this. Troops, your politics are nobody’s business but your own, do not give in to their strongarm tactics. Follow your oath, support and defend the constitution. Treat any questions about your political affiliations as if you were a POW.

      Article IV – If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me and will back them up in every way.

    Who’s going to be the one to “take out” these biotches at long range?

    “It’s the only way to be sure.”

    • SFC D says:

      No. None of that. Don’t become the thing you hate.

      • USMC Steve says:

        Wrong answer. It is way past time for things to get seriously kinetic. These people are nothing more than traitors. To use one of their favorite phrases, “enemies of the state”. And they are not mouthing off, they mean this shit. We must engage now.

        • SFC D says:

          I’m not an advocate of murder and/or political assassination. But you go on and do what you feel is best, Lee Harvey.

          • USMC STEVE says:

            Apparently you are a candy ass though. Bend over and wait for your new political overlords to come to you. Shouldn’t be long. Because until the social democrats and their liberal minions are physically punished for their transgressions, they will not stop this nonsense. Reread the Declaration of Independence for further guidance.

    • 5JC says:

      Sounds like a self nomination if I ever heard one. You should share your thoughts with the local police (not the feds) and see if you can garner any support. If the Capitol Police will let protestors in the US Capitol who knows?

  5. President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

    We are now in the era of Mike V’s “Absolved” and John Ross’s “Unintended Consequences”.
    PantyFag and #BurnLootMurder have taken the first shots.
    When will we step up to the line (or more likely, from camouflage)?

  6. Stacy0311 says:

    Looks like it’s time to drop a 4187, Request for Retirement. I was hoping to make it to 40, but I’ll be pulling the plug at 36

    • QMC says:

      Yep. You and me both. I see where this is headed, and I’m just going to get off the train here.

    • Steeleyi says:

      I always assumed you were a Marine.

        I AM A QUISLING AND LIKE PINK HATS!!!

        Can someone tell me where the feminine hygiene products are in this place?

    • MSG Eric says:

      Oh come on, you act like this kind of thing happened before, like under Obama…

      At least under Clinton everyone made fun of him pretty equally.

      I know there were plenty of bureaucrats who merely had to kiss King Barry’s backside and they were fine to do whatever they wanted.

    • OWB says:

      Stuff like this really is survivable. Served under a bunch of CinC’s only about half of whom I’d voted for. Some were pretty miserable, but every payday, the $ was there. Figured I was still getting paid to do my job, so I did it.

      • Stacy0311 says:

        And soon CID/DNC will be combing through everybody’s social media history (and Zuckerberg and Dorsey will happily turn it over to the commissars) for memes, commentary, shared news stories.

        Next thing you know I’m making gravel at the Leavenworth Home for Wayward Youths

  7. OlafTheTanker says:

    They could always go to Georgia and pull in all of those who were counted as voted Democrat via absentee ballot.

  8. Sapper3307 says:

    So no Texains at the capital this week?

Off the top of my head, Occupy Wall Street, Antifa, and BLM in recent years.”

    Lets not forget, the NRA, Freemasons, Knights of Columbus, Republican or Libertarian Party.

  10. SFC D says:

    No one ever expects the Spanish Inquisition. Didn’t we fight a revolution to prevent this kind of government intrusion? Send the rabble back to England?

  11. oldgeezer says:

    Obama already purged the officer corps of loyal (to the Constitution) officers. He made it easy for the purge that will follow now.

    Some of us still respect the oath we took way back when. It was/is for a lifetime.

    F*ck ’em.

    • OWB says:

      Yep. Even some of us who were not officers just do not accept that upon receipt of a retirement check that the oath suddenly goes away. It was an oath we took, some of us multiple times. There was no end date on it.

      We may not be legally obligated by it but are most definitely morally bound by it – a distinction which simply does not matter to me.

      • SFC D says:

        I can’t speak for anyone else, but I signed on for life.

      • Vladimir L says:

        But, your oath, “To support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic” and “… obey the orders of the president…” is so imprecise. It must be amended so that you don’t accidentally defend it against the wrong people or obey the wrong president.

        • USMC STEVE says:

          Biden ain’t president. He didn’t win any election. This is the very definition of an illegitimate government. That the idiots in the congress chose to aid and abet him in that crime does not make it any less illegitimate.

  12. 5JC says:

    So where was she last summer when a retired major supported riots as a “medic”?

    Where was she when Antifa supporter, anti police protestor Staff Sergeant Steven Carillo was running around murdering cops and security officers?

    These people are always so late to the party.

  13. Just An Old Dog says:

    Didn’t they take the bolts out of weapons and barrels off of pistols for one of clinton’s events?
