Following last week’s deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol, at least 25,000 National Guard troops will be in the nation’s capital for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next Wednesday to bolster security, the National Guard Bureau (NBG) confirmed on Friday.
“The Defense Department has agreed to provide up to 25,000 service members to support the Presidential Inauguration National Special Security Event […] led by the U.S. Secret Service,” an NBG news release reads. “The Department of the Army and the National Guard Bureau are working on a sourcing solution now to support this request.”
National Guard troops will pour in from all 50 states, three territories, and the District of Columbia to take part in this massive security operation.
This development comes after Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy on Thursday authorized up to 21,000 National Guard troops from across the nation to help law enforcement with security for the January 20 event, according to the NGB. The final number of troops will be set by the Secret Service.
Ever since a mob violently stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6, the amount of Guard troops in Washington has steadily increased. Reporter Jennie Taer has been on the ground in Washington and has confirmed that to be the case.
“I observed the National Guard deployed to the Capitol on Thursday,” Taer told this reporter. “They lined the fence that’s been put up to secure the grounds. I also spent time on Friday with the Pennsylvania National Guard here in D.C. They were at least a mile from the Capitol and were directing traffic, only allowing those with essential worker and business paperwork to pass through to the roads that are right now closed to the public.”
The Capitol riot resulted in the deaths of five people. In its aftermath, the Pentagon was criticized for not taking the threats of extremists seriously enough that day, only having 340 unarmed Guard members in Washington. Many comparisons have been drawn to this summer’s racial justice protests and riots in the nation’s capital, which saw the National Guard act quickly and aggressively in arresting and dispersing people.
Thousands of Guard troops have been securing the city in the lead-up to Biden’s inauguration, with them stationed around the U.S. Capitol and other vital places.

‘Men. Can’t. Get. Pregnant’ a fight for truth, not dangerous woke agenda
“Men. Can’t. Get. Pregnant.”
It seems logical but logic is a rarity in our world, where even physicians are willing to push fantasy ideology instead of science.
That’s what happened during a House hearing Thursday, when Dr. Bhavik Kumar, medical director for primary and trans care at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, told lawmakers under questioning from Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-GA, “men can have pregnancies, especially trans men.”
Men cannot become pregnant. It’s a dangerous lie.
It is not based on science and wishing it is true doesn’t make it true. It defy’s common sense. Just decades ago making that statement would have been met with laughter or deep concern for the mental health status of the person who made it. Why? Because of science and common sense.
Human reproduction and our sex is determined by sex chromosomes, which are XX for females, and XY for males. Those chromosomes also give us distinctly different appearances as well, no matter what a human being wishes they could be. And yes, there are some people born with ambiguous genitalia, meaning they have both and the Mayo Clinic goes into great detail about this disorder.
However, don’t let common sense stop those who want to make the world believe – especially our young children – that is possible for men to have babies.
What is stunning is that many doctors, like Kumar, have no problem propagating this lie to the public. They are establishing a narrative that is not fact based, scientific or possible. When Clyde questioned Kumar at the House hearing, which was called by Democrat to focus on how restricting abortions can harm patients, he exposed the very bizarre reality we live in.
The hearing appeared to go off the rails after Clyde’s questioning. I’m grateful it did. Why? Because we need to understand that doctors like Kumar, as well as many special interest groups, lawmakers and teachers in our children’s lives and in their classrooms are consistently preaching a woke agenda to push narratives that contradict science, parental rights and reality. Planned Parenthood is a perfect example of these lies and Kumar its general charged with transgender rights is more than happy to push them.
This false agenda devalues human life and it is attempting to take away our identity. I believe its goal is one of social transformation unlike we’ve ever seen in history. Anyone who questions this bizarre ideological narrative is ostracized or labeled intolerant. The fear that one may be seen as intolerant keeps most people from speaking up even when the lie is blatant and absurd.
Sadly, there are too many adults spouting lies. Questioning the lie is enough to get the leftist media machine to swing into high gear – where those who question the lie are censored, banned or public chastised by the radical liberals.
What’s more bizarre is that highly educated doctors that are desperate to be seen as inclusive, or who are themselves truly ideological in their thinking, have no problem ignoring science to push a false ideological narrative.
Even they struggle to explain these bizarre beliefs.
For example, Mariel Young, Phd, said in a tweet in 2021 that “Cis women are people. Trans men are people. Non-binary people are people. Even though most pregnant people are probably cis women, it costs me nothing to acknowledge that others can be pregnant too. And women are in fact people, so…”

The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh is doing phenomenal work exposing the very real dangers many children face when confronted by these extremist sexual gender beliefs and dysphoria. Many of these dangers are pushed on susceptible children by adults who have joined the gender dysphoria cult and some who are bragging about the money that can be made with these evasive permanent surgeries, like Walsh exposed in his recent documentary ‘……’
Walsh is exposing that reality behind the extremist ideology.
Walsh’s exposé on Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s (VUMC) transgender treatment on minors, was groundbreaking and shocking. On October 21, Walsh will “be holding a rally at the Tennessee state capitol in Nashville to push for the end of “child mutilation” in the state.”
I’m grateful that Rep. Clyde, Walsh and many others are standing up to the radical left and these very dangerous ideologies. More importantly exposing them to the public. But now each one of us needs to do the same. If we don’t expose the truth and do what’s needed to save our children, our nation and in fact, science – we will only have ourselves to blame when lies becomes the accepted normal.
Join us on October 21 at the state capitol as we rally to end child mutilation across the state. We are going to put a stop to gender ideology’s assault on our children. Come and be a part of the movement.
