Rand Paul Issues Dire Warning About What Dems Are Doing In Washington D.C.
Syndicated Via AFF| On a recent broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) stated that there wasn’t enough security during the ‘Capitol riot’ “and now we’re going to become a militarized zone.” Paul also stated that we have to “resist” the rapid loss of civil liberties during a crisis, Breitbart News reports.
DC has implemented a vast amount of different security measures ahead of the inauguration for Biden/Harris takeover.
The left is using this event to further their agenda all in the name of safety. Where was the safety when Antifa and Black Lives Matter were bussed into different cities across our nation to riot and loot?
Breitbart continued their report:
Paul said, “Well, the thing is Laura, you know government. They either underreact or overreact. So, I think there was too little security obviously last week, and now we’re going to become a militarized zone. And they’re checking congressmen as they come in to see if they have a sharp pencil or a sharp pen. So, it’s gotten ridiculous. And so, we’ll see what happens, and whether it’s permanent. But most people who write about civil liberties say that in times of war, or in times of stress, or in times of crisis, you lose your civil liberties very quickly. But it’s very difficult to get them back. Because government, once it grows large, never wants to give up on this. But yes, we have to resist this. And we have to have security, obviously. But I think living in a wartime state with…we have troops in the Capitol. They’re staying in the Capitol. They’re platooning and camping in the Capitol. So, I understand, that last week, we weren’t prepared and that was a real problem, and I regret everything that happened last week with that. But going forward, this week, I think we — there’s a danger of overreacting.”
So what exactly has DC done to secure DC during the inauguration? Fox News did a break down of the security measures that been put in place.
Matt Miller, the special agent in charge of the Secret Service, said the city has extended the special designation for security from Jan. 13 to Jan. 21, the day after President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in.
In addition to Capitol Police, thousands of local law enforcement officials from different states will provide back up to D.C. police, and hundreds of FBI agents are expected to be on the ground as well.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has also deployed resources to D.C. and the surrounding areas in Maryland and Virginia, said Maryann Tierney, a regional administrator.
City officials are erecting a perimeter throughout downtown, putting up barriers around the White House, the National Mall and the Capitol. In order to travel through the perimeter, people will need to provide proof of essential purpose.
The National Mall will be closed until after the inauguration and permits for gatherings have been suspended, with the exception of two designated areas — at the Navy Memorial and John Marshall Park — that will accommodate about 100 protesters on the day of the event.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that the city’s Metro has closed 13 of its stations as well as four major bridges. Transit lines, including trains and buses, will be suspended and wide swaths of streets in and around the Capitol will be closed off.
They have allowed the National Guard to be armed.
Barriers with razor wire around the U.S. Capitol
That is more protection than we have provided to secure our borders and that is just what is being reported. One can only imagine what else they are doing in DC and all in the name of safety.
Isn’t it ironic how the left would not allow the national guard to aid citizens when the left organizations were looting, burning, assaulting, rioting and shooting people and even killing police officers. They let Americans suffer and die all year, simply because it did not fit into their narrative.
If putting up all these “safety measures” all in the name of their safety is needed so that they feel safe, then why do they want to destroy the few measures we have at our nations borders, yes, including walls and razor wire?
I honestly hope nobody shows up to protest, of course the left will say, ” LOOK! Our overkill armed measures protect people!” While if people to show up to protest, the left will say, ” LOOK! THIS is why we needed armed security measures and it worked!”
It is a no joy scenario and nothing good will come of this. This is our New America.
