#democratelectionfraud #stolenelection #democratcoup #democratcoverup Plan to militarize Capitol security with Guard troops faces multiplying questions in Senate A National Guard quick reaction force was among the post-Jan. 6 security measures suggested by retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honore. Legislation that would create a National Guard quick reaction force for the Capitol complex is set to encounter more intense opposition in the Senate than it received in the House of Representatives. The House last week approved a $1.9 billion emergency funding bill intended to protect the U.S. Capitol. The measure, introduced in response to the Jan. 6 riot in and around the complex, includes a provision to establish a National Guard quick reaction force (QRF) to be activated in case of emergency. But the bill, which barely squeaked through the House on a 213-212 vote, is being heavily lobbied against as it heads into the Senate. The QRF was among the security upgrades suggested in a proposal from retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honore, who this year spearheaded a review of Capitol security. In his proposal, Honore also recommended pop-up fencing and additional funding for riot gear. Those who oppose a National Guard QRF argue that while the complex and its inhabitants must be protected, the mission does not belong to the National Guard. Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), the ranking members of the Senate and House Armed Services Committees, respectively, released a joint statement highlighting that issue. "Use of the uniformed military in D.C. and the Capitol Complex is subject to complex statutory restrictions, and for good reason," the two legislators said. "We cannot and should not militarize the security of the Capitol Complex." The National Guard Association of the United States agreed. "This is a law enforcement mission," association spokesman John Goheen told Just the News. "Law enforcement is best left to law enforcement. Let's put this in the hands of the Capitol Police. It's always been their job. Let's keep it their job." In the days following the Jan. 6 breach of the Capitol, some 26,000 National Guard troops arrived from around the country to protect the complex. As no additional violence took place at the Capitol, the troops gradually dwindled to about 2,300. The last of those troops departed Washington on Sunday, when the Capitol Police resumed full control of security for the complex. If a National Guard QRF is approved, troops would be permanently near at hand in case of emergency. Such a force would fall under the Washington, D.C. National Guard, but it remains unclear how the force would be called into action. "Congress has held precisely no hearings to examine the creation of a Quick Reaction Force to weigh costs, benefits, and fundamental questions about its nature and responsibilities," Inhofe and Rogers said in their joint statement. "It gets murky," Goheen said, because the Washington, D.C. National Guard has a unique chain of command, unlike typical Guard units commanded by their states' governors. "The mayor can request the Guard, but doesn't have the command authority that a governor would have. It's a federal district." "The chain of command goes up through the Secretary of the Army and the Secretary of Defense," Goheen explained. The Guard's overall mission in the District lacked clarity in January, and remains to be addressed for future missions, according to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) "Aspects of the Guard's presence here were not fleshed out as clearly or coherently as either Congress or the servicemembers deserved, and Members of Congress will continue to discuss and debate whether it is appropriate for uniformed military personnel to play an ongoing role in policing the U.S. Capitol going forward," McConnell said Monday in the Senate. If approved, the QRF measure would further stretch an already heavily worked National Guard, Goheen said. It would be "another personnel-intensive mission at a time when we seem to be picking up personnel-intensive missions all the time." These include administering vaccines, handing out food, or working at morgues — and responding to hurricanes, floods, and wildfires. "I've never seen the Guard do so many things," he said. "You can understand why the Guard is on everyone's speed dial. The reality is, we have a lot to do." Ultimately Congress will make the decision, Goheen said. "If Congress appropriates the money and tells us to do it, then we'll do it." --Plan to militarize Capitol security with Guard troops faces multiplying questions in Senate | Just The News --https://justthenews.com/government/security/will-national-guard-be-tapped-quell-threats-against-capitol-proposal-faces -RETRIEVED-Thu May 27 2021 23:13:42 GMT+0200 (Central European Summer Time)

#woke #socialjustice #genderpolitics #blackliesmatter #crt Lockheed Martin and the woke industrial complex Christopher Rufo writes another expose of wokeism’s inroads on corporate America. This one is about Lockheed Martin. According to documents Rufo obtained, last year Lockheed sent white male executives to a three-day diversity-training program aimed at deconstructing their “white male culture” and encouraging them to atone for their “white male privilege.” Lockheed’s executives apparently received the full, no-holds-barred White males suck treatment. This included deconstructing employees’ “white male privilege” through a series of “privilege statements,” then working to rebuild their identities as “agent[s] of change.” The Red Chinese are good at this sort of thing. Among the sins the corporate executives were asked to own up to was this: “My culture teaches me to minimize the perspectives and powers of people of other races.” That’s the opposite of what is happening in classrooms all over America. The statement in question wasn’t true when my daughters attended public school in the 1990s. It wasn’t even true when I attended public school in the 1960s, although I don’t doubt that it was true in many school districts. The executives were instructed to read statements intended to drive home the idea that white male culture is “devastating” to racial minorities and women: The trainers had the Lockheed employees read a series of “I’m tired” statements from fictitious racial minorities and women. The statements included: “I’m tired of being Black”; “I’m tired of you making more money than me”; “I’m tired of people disparaging our campaigns (like Black Lives Matter)”; “I’m tired of Black boys/girls being murdered”; “I’m tired of people thinking they’re smarter and more qualified than me”; “I’m tired of hearing about how we need a wall at the southern borders but not on the northern borders”; “I’m tired of the desire or comment to remove race—the concept that we should be ‘colorblind.’” Attributing these whiny and in some cases silly statements to “racial minorities” and women disparages members of these groups. A reasonable executive might wonder why he should hire anyone this tired and this dispirited. Were there any fictitious statements like “I’m tired of being denied college entrance because I’m Asian” or “I’m tired of having admissions officers rate me low on ‘personal qualities’ because I’m serious”? I’m guessing there weren’t. The trainers disparaged “white male culture” because it consists of traits such as “rugged individualism,” “a can-do attitude,” “hard work,” “operating from principles,” and “striving towards success,” which are superficially positive but are “devastating” to women and minorities. But why should these positive traits be “devastating” to women and minorities? The premise seems to be that women and minorities feel threatened because they don’t possess them to the same extent as white males. Here, again, the instructors are doing what they accuse “white male culture” of doing — teaching white males to minimize the powers of people of other races. What would be “devastating” is a world in which corporations repudiated or downplayed the value of hard work, a can-do attitude, operating from principles, and striving towards success. If Lockheed’s executives reject these concepts, which are likely responsible for much of their personal success and the success of their company, then Lockheed’s future is bleak. And if hucksters like the guys who reeducated Lockheed’s execs succeed in spreading their defeatist, racialist doctrines throughout our schools and our corporations, America’s future is bleak, as well. --Lockheed Martin and the woke industrial complex | Power Line --https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2021/05/lockheed-martin-and-the-woke-industrial-complex.php -RETRIEVED-Thu May 27 2021 23:10:14 GMT+0200 (Central European Summer Time)
