Democrats Imposing Measures on Citizens They Condemn for ‘Undocumented’ Foreigners

Madam Speaker makes sure she’ll be protected. You, not so much. (Nancy Pelosi/Facebook)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Following the January 6 insurrection, a seven-foot, non-scalable fence was added around the Capitol Hill complex,” Business Insider reveals in a Sunday article on “ramped up” security for the Biden inauguration. “Barbed wire sits atop the fence, providing an additional barrier to entry to the grounds.”

“This morning while in that half-awake /half-asleep state, out of nowhere I thought ‘Green Zones,’” WarOnGuns Correspondent DDS told me in an email sent over the weekend. “In places like Baghdad and Kabul, we built secure areas to protect our people and the government we were trying to establish from hostile militias. I never thought I would live to see a similar process going on in our national and state capitals. Yet here we are.”

These changes appear slated to last beyond the inauguration and become “the new normal.”

“Dems Demand Public Locked Out of Capitol Grounds Forever – Publish Bill To Install Fence Despite Claiming Walls Don’t Work,” The National Pulse observes. “The bill – H.R.339 – seeks to ‘direct the Architect of the Capitol to design and install an appropriate fence around the perimeter of the United States Capitol, including the East Front and the West Front.’”

Curiously, bill sponsor Ritchie Torres has in the past condemned such efforts, at least when meant to secure the country from foreign nationals attempting to bypass immigration laws.

“@realDonaldTrump is diverting money from important infrastructure, military projects & #PuertoRico for a border wall intended to divide our country,” Torres tweeted in 2019. Evidently, keeping unvetted aliens out of the country divides us but keeping citizens out of a Capitol that they paid for unifies us. Or something.

That’s not the only cognitive dissonance on display.

“The Capitol Police arrested a man for possession of a handgun and over 500 rounds of ammunitions [sic] after he presented ‘non-government issued’ inaugural credentials at a police checkpoint in Washington, DC,” Mediaite reports. Sounds like a real threat, doesn’t it? Especially with initial fake news reports saying he tried to use a “fake” ID.

Except you need to go to a source that fleshes out more details to find he’s a security guard, he was lost and asking them for directions, he is licensed to carry in Virginia and says he forgot the gun was in his vehicle, and the search was predicated on Capitol Police noticing pro-gun decals on his truck. Where have we seen that danger to supposedly protected speech before?

And while inaugural credentials are no doubt necessary security measures, the thought can’t be ignored that one of the points Democrats make about voting (and isn’t that what this whole electoral “controversy” necessitating increased security is about?) is that requiring government-issued IDs to vote “disenfranchises” minorities?

Apparently, the problem is (or was) recognized enough to hold a House committee hearing in 2006 on “’You Don’t Need Papers to Vote?’ Non-Citizen Voting and ID Requirements in U.S. Elections.”

We’re not done exploring inconsistencies.

“U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack or other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event,” Chicago’s WGN9 reports.

That’s a lot of government guns being deployed against unarmed citizens whose right, by Constitutional mandate, “shall not be infringed.” Hey, it’s not like Democrat gun-grabbers are really “anti-gun.” They just want to be the ones controlling them all.

We should have no problem with vetting the troops, although you’d think that would be a condition of continued eligibility to be in the Guard. Unlike Fort Hood. More likely, this is a political purge that will be used to conflate members who take their oaths seriously (including refusing unlawful orders to disarm American citizens) with white supremacists.

What we should all have a problem with – except for Democrats and “cheap labor Republicans” – is the foreign nationals who enter this country illegally who undergo absolutely no vetting and put the entire population, not just protected politicians, at risk. Unlike the “rigorous security screening” politicians lie about when “legally” admitting “refugees” from places it is impossible to obtain complete records from, those who sneak into the country undergo no scrutiny at all.

No problem, Joe Biden says. In fact, he’s counting on it.

“Biden will announce legislation his first day in office to provide a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants in the United States illegally,” the Associated Press reports. That’s because, unlike head-in-the-sand state and national “gun rights groups” that refuse to even talk about it, he knows they will vote overwhelmingly Democrat and overwhelmingly anti-gun, meaning an unchallengeable majority will be able to pass whatever gun grabs they dream up and be upheld by judges they appoint.

Lured in by such promises, a “caravan” comprised of thousands of Hondurans is on its way to our southern border. The Biden administration’s response?

“[C]oming right now does not make sense for their own safety…while we put into place processes that they may be able to access in the future.”

The great object is not to protect U.S. sovereignty, or even pretend to adhere to COVID-19 restrictions being used to decimate the economy of the middle class. It’s to make sure the tax-funded infrastructure is in place to process them and locate them to where it will have the most impact. Like “red states.”

And why stop there? If the Democrats repeal the 60-vote Senate filibuster/cloture rule, as Biden “signaled openness” to, it will take only a simple majority to pass new gun controls, pack the Supreme Court, provide statehood for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, which will result in four new anti-gun senators, and millions of new anti-gun Democrat voters.

On the bright side, they will no longer need to steal votes.

I was going to point out the hypocrisy of how, in order to even pretend to be consistent, requiring a government ID to buy a gun must also disenfranchise minorities the same way it (supposedly) does with voting, but the thought strikes: Give it a few years under total Democrat rule and we won’t be able to do that anyway. At least “legally.”

Unless you believe the lie that “no one is talking about taking your guns.”

The democrats built a fence around the capitol to protect themselves. But democrats also plan to demolish 500 miles of new fencing already built to protect the people. It should be telling for every thinking voter.

Government’s job is to protect and further our GOD given constitutionally protected RIGHTS and FREEDOMS. Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, self defense, to assemble PEACEABLY, to keep and bear arms, to speak one’s mind etc. When government becomes destructive of these ends it is in the right of the people to alter or abolish it and create new government. You will find that last sentence in the declaration of independence. We know that gun control is what actually started the FIRST revolutionary war. See 1775 Lexington and Concord. It appears history is about to repeat itself. Even Yamamoto knew… Read more »

Members of the national guard take an oath as well, so do members of the U.S. Marshals Service. Yesterday, 2,000 national guard troops were sworn in as Special Deputy U.S. Marshals so they have arrest powers.

Most of the people who will be enforcing the new gun laws took an oath.

I think the oath was given to 20,000 national guard personnel. So since they are now US Marshals the demonrats can say that they didn’t use our military government against us. Typical demonrat political move. Expect more of where that came from.

The report I saw was that Chief Lamont Ruffin from the D.C. District Court swore in 2,000. I don’t know, maybe there were more instances. I know why they were sworn in as deputies. The bigger point is, the Democrats can’t use them if they won’t be used. The local barber, accountant, and plumber won’t be enforcing any new gun control laws. The people shooting golden retrievers and burning down homes will all be government employees with badges, guns, and radios – and they all took oaths. Many of them are veterans and in many cases active military will be… Read more »

There are also over 2,000 Capitol police, over 3,000 D.C. Metro police, and who knows how many federal LEOs from various bureaus/agencies.

There will be no shortage of people with arrest powers and many times that number of government employees with guns, but no arrest powers, to back them up.

When I was in the Air Force , we had a saying about “ pushing the envelope “, meaning going to the extreme end of the functionality of the equipment or personal to the point of failure.
I believe that is what the Democrats are doing and trying to do.
It started with the COVID-19 situation, pushing the envelope with shut downs, face masks, social distancing, all of which are contributing to the demise of our Capitalist economy, making it easier to be replaced by Socialism.
Everyone wearing a mask are the compliant sheep that WILL NOT FIGHT.

Look at the picture that accompanies this article. It shows who is really in charge. In boot camp I recall hearing that the fence around the base wasn’t there to keep people out but to keep people in. Let’s hope it works that way here and keeps the “trash” from blowing out into to streets. They’ll probably end up having to fence in all of washingtoon.

These fences and barriers are not meant to protect anyone. They are a message from the DemocRATs that “We are in control !” “We have the military to back up our Socialist/Communist Dictatorship, so you will obey and do as you are told” !! It’s going to be an expensive and rough four years !!!

They are even incorporating government set $15 Wage (they really mean maximum not minimum wage). I’ve had about 6 courses in economics and it all comes down to Supply and Demand. When you are in demand your wages are up. When there are too many jobs in America you are in demand for high wages. He means to give our jobs to China, India, etc and set the Socialized Wage at $15, not a penny more; budget yourself (even as food, fuel, housing, etc. increases considerable under the regime).

is there a difference in the fence put up around the capital and a fence/wall at the border? I don’t recall an angry mob of pseudo patriotic outsiders storming the capital on the 6th. how do economies grow? if a city loses 1/2 its population because the jobs are elsewhere, should that city put up a wall or try to entice others to live there. how about the traditional way this country dealt with immigration prior to that first piece of legislation designed to keep some people out. why the need for this particular piece of law? anyone…anyone? if the… Read more »

@wil – If you bump population by 10% in order to increase GDP by 5% – If newcomers get a “fair share”, (equal to their production) others are not impacted by GDP change. Historically immigrants have had higher productivity to income ratios – BUT low-income illegals often become dependents on the state. Most do not have health insurance and will wait to seek medical care until situation is dire, going to emergency room – which must treat child at great expense and without reimbursement. GDP is a rather weak proxy for quality of life. On day to day basis I… Read more »

Will Biden ,Pelosi ,and Shumer, decide after the new administration takes control of the government that the fence will be taken down and replaced with a Moat around the capitol complex?
If these people are so worried about military members being anti-Biden, why are they using them in the first place, are they that scared that the voting BS they pulled off will bite them now.
This is shameful our country has to go this far, I guess Biden learned lot’s of things from China.
