After years of telling us that ‘walls don’t work’ or that they are somehow ‘racist’, what explains this sudden change?
During a press conference with Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser addressing the district’s response to the storming of the Capitol, Ryan McCarthy said a fence will be built and additional National Guard troops will arrive in the coming days to bolster law enforcement.
“This morning we began erecting a 7-foot non-scalable fence,” McCarthy said. “These personnel and these security measures will be in place for no less than the next 30 days.”
He said the barrier would stretch from Constitution Avenue to Independence Avenue to First Street near the pond. —NYPost
Hold up… did that say ‘National Guard’, too?
I thought Bowser didn’t WANT the National Guard on the scene. She’s more of a ‘defund the police’ kind of gal.
Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser discouraged federal agencies from providing assistance to Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department in a letter issued to agencies on Tuesday, effectively asking federal law enforcement to “stand down” as the city handled a pro-Trump rally that eventually became a riot.
“Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) told Justice Department and Pentagon leaders on Tuesday that the city is not requesting federal law enforcement assistance with protests organized by President Trump‘s supporters this week,” The Hill reported on Tuesday, adding that Bowser specifically requested that he any federal officials “notify the city and its police department if federal authorities are deployed.”
…The letter went on to demand that federal law enforcement officials notify and consult with D.C. police, ostensibly so that D.C. police could provide direction on the fly.
“To be clear, the District of Columbia is not requesting other federal law enforcement personnel and discourages any additional deployment without immediate notification to, and consultation with, MPD if such plans are underway,” Bowser said. “The District of Columbia Government has not requested personnel from any other federal law enforcement agencies. To avoid confusion, we ask that any request for additional assistance be coordinated using the same process and procedures.” –DailyWire
If the National Guard had been on hand, the crowd would have marched to their hearts’ content never have breached the Capitol.
It’s enough to make a cynic wonder whether she WANTED to see this kind of an incident. It certainly gave Democrats one hell of a narrative to play with didn’t it? And if you haven’t noticed by now, narratives have more cultural power than the actual facts.
If they didn’t, Joe Biden wouldn’t have worked so damned hard trying to make people believe the lie he kept telling about Charlottesville and ‘very fine people’.
If you know someone who thinks Bowser’s an example of fine leadership, those definitions need a reset. Start here.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
