Nat’l Guard on Standby for Biden’s Speech to Congress

The price tag for their continued employment has already topped $520 million.

On Wednesday night, in the even of his 100th day in office, Joe Biden will do something fairly rare:  Appear in public and speak.

One of the most salient complaints that the nation has had regarding Joe Biden has been his unwillingness to lead from a public perch.  The Commander in Chief has held exactly one true press conference during his time in office, and has even cut himself off from answering reporters’ questions fearing that there could be “trouble” if he continued.

Even for tonight’s event, there are complaints about who will be allowed in attendance and where they will be forced to sit.

The speech will nearly 4 months after an extraordinary attack on the Capitol in January, and there are plenty of precautions in place in case some of the would-be insurrectionists are looking for a re-run.

“The Secret Service and all law enforcement and public safety partners have worked hard collectively in preparation to secure this significant event,” said a Secret Service representative, adding that “every security contingency is accounted for.”

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday said she is confident about security for Biden’s speech.

“I actually had a very strong briefing on Monday. I said I wish I had had this briefing, you know, before January 6. But we insisted on knowing every detail of it,” she told reporters.

The National Guard will be available as well, despite continued complaints about their controversial deployment in the nation’s capital.

The white-domed building is still surrounded by a black steel mesh fence with some 2,250 armed National Guard troops from the District of Columbia and 18 states on duty in the city, the vestiges of a much larger force put in place after Trump supporters stormed the building as Congress was voting to certify Biden’s election victory.

District of Columbia authorities have asked the Pentagon to authorize the district’s National Guard contingent to help local police handle any anti-Biden protests coinciding with Wednesday’s address.

“The D.C. National Guard is prepared to support D.C. law enforcement, pending approval” by acting Army Secretary John Whitley, the D.C. National Guard said in a statement.

The deployment of National Guard troops to DC has already cost a staggering $520 million thus far, which has complicated support for their continued presence.

Biden And Harris Are Giving Bizarre Mixed Messages On Vaccinations And Masks

Newsflash to the Biden-Harris administration — you’re not helping.

Newsflash to the Biden-Harris administration — you’re not helping. Before they were elected, Dementia Joe and Kamala “I will never visit the border,” Harris were very clear on their messaging regarding the virus from Wuhan. It was basically, “Everyone! Be Afraid All The Time! Wear Your Mask 24/7, Or You’re All Going To Die! Well that, and Orange Man Bad! Vote Biden-Harris!” It worked for them thanks to the corporate media and their Big Tech buddies. But now we’re over 100 days into the Biden-Harris administration. Despite millions of vaccines, states opening up, and cases declining in many areas of the country, the message hasn’t changed much. The President seems to rely on his mask the same way Linus from Peanuts needed his blanket. Biden freaked out when he was at an event in Georgia and couldn’t find his mask despite being outdoors and having been fully vaccinated several months ago. Dementia Joe forgets he had his first shot when Donald Trump was president. https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1387918458822795269?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1387918458822795269%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fclashdaily.com%2F2021%2F05%2Fbidens-misplaced-mask-was-more-than-just-a-goofy-gaffe-heres-why-video%2F Remember when he wore a mask outside as he walked to a podium to tell America we didn’t have to wear a mask when we were outside? https://twitter.com/RNCResearch/status/1387114804435955720?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1387114804435955720%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fclashdaily.com%2F2021%2F04%2Fwatch-biden-walks-outside-wearing-a-mask-to-tell-americans-they-dont-need-to-wear-masks-outside%2F It’s these kinds of weird behaviors by Biden-Harris that are making people wonder what the point is in getting vaccinated. He’s now saying that it’s a “patriotic duty” to keep wearing a mask after being vaccinated. https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1388089012573847552?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1388089012573847552%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fclashdaily.com%2F2021%2F04%2Fwatch-joe-gives-crazy-mixed-messages-about-masks-and-vaccines%2F If the Biden-Harris administration believes that vaccines are highly effective at preventing illness, which is the point of a vaccine, shouldn’t they be acting as if they believed the shots were effective? But the President and Vice President continue to behave as though they have not been given an efficacious vaccine — they still wear a mask when they’re in public. In the past few days, President Biden, First Lady…
