You’re right. He didn’t sign an order, because Pelosi said she didn’t want them. Mayor Muriel Bowser also said she didn’t want them.

From the Gateway Pundit- Dated Feb. 27, 2021: In the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Former Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving recalled to House Admin how previous discussions with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her office factored in to his “blender of decision making,” according to three sources with direct knowledge of Irving’s talk with House Admin.

Pelosi’s office had previously impressed upon Irving that the National Guard was to remain off Capitol Grounds, Irving allegedly told House Admin. The discussions, which centered around “optics,” allegedly occurred in the months prior to the Jan. 6 riot, during a time when deployment of federal resources for civil unrest was unpopular with Democrats and many members of Congress.

Two days before Congress was set to formalize President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund was growing increasingly worried about the size of the pro-Trump crowds expected to stream into Washington in protest. To be on the safe side, Sund asked House and Senate security officials for permission to request that the D.C. National Guard be placed on standby in case he needed quick backup.
But, Sund said, they turned him down.” John Falcicchio, chief of staff for D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser admitted: “Literally, this guy is on the phone, I mean, crying out for help. It’s burned in my memories.”

On Jan. 6, Chief Sund again asked the house Seargent at arms Paul Irving to request National Guard help. Irving said he would have to quote “Run it up the chain” to get permission from Speaker Pelosi because he was concerned about the “optics” that calling in the National Guard would present.

Irving’s “Chain” is the political leadership that appointed him, specifically Pelosi. Although she was not in charge of the Capitol Police, she WOULD be in charge of the decision to call in the NG, because of the “Optics”.

Another article from the National Pulse, where some of the information was taken from dated Jan 11, 2021:

Out of curiosity, do you extend the same “justice” to the perpetrators and participants in the Summer of Riots? There is little doubt that those persons also “attacked America”. How about the many people, high and low, calling for America to adopt socialism/communism and to scrap the Bill of Rights, if not the entire Constitution? Oh, let’s not forget the crowds of people chanting support for internationally condemned genocidal terrorist organizations.

Just wondering how deep your lock-them-up-and-throw-away-the-key style of due process extends.

You DO know the FBI had agents and paid Confidential Human Sources at the Capitol that day right?

As of January 2024, Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.), a top Republican on the House Oversight & Accountability Committee that is doing an investigation, said congress has a “case file” showing the federal government “set the stage for what happened” on Jan. 6.

“We believe that there were easily 200 FBI undercover assets operating in the crowd, outside the Capitol, embedded into groups that entered the Capitol or provoked entry of the Capitol,” Higgins said. “Given the scope of the operation and the number of doors where entry was allowed or even encouraged—and the number of people that were actually outside the Capitol and that entered—we believe 200 [is a] conservative number.”

I wouldn’t bother guys, he has obviously drunk the leftist coolaid. He’s fine with wheelchair grandmas getting years in prison for being on the capital grounds while crazy leftist lunatics get probation for firebombing police cars.

You can’t have a rational conversation with the religious (lgbtq, TDS, raaaaacism) left.

Did they attack the government of the USA? No. Riots are a different category.

if 100 people wearing no labels from no organization entered the USA Capital right now doing the same actions, would you feel differently?

Do with Washington and Oregon incidents what you want.

I stand firm with my thoughts on Jan 6th.

I also stand firm on comments about koolaid/wheelchairs/lgbtq can be taken to social media instead of here. That crossed a huge line.

from the tone of your statements…

I find myself comparing you to what was referred to as Torrie during the revolution???

so… for the king???

not sure I understand the attitude that seems to be displayed here…

replies have been consistent… explanations have been given…

and FYI ever since the revolution many American’s do NOT consider the government their friend…

guess it’s in the blood?

a point that might be worth considering… MANY of those politicians are now MILLIONAIRES…

they weren’t before they took office???

how did they get that way???

I seem to recall the news asking “where is Trump” between the hours of 7:00PM and 9:00PM.

From what I find online, Pelosi had no say in the deployment of the guard.

However, does no guard presence mean the actions of that night were permitted? I watched this event for three hours in complete disbelief.

I have no idea about torries. All I recall from school is an American History class teacher asking me questions about the political parties of Washington and Adams (I missed all the questions), and spending the entire Civics class admiring a girl across the classroom.

I am not rich. I have no idea how others become rich.

Of course she “takes responsibility” now. She took it in a vehicle with her daughter, who was filming it at the time and unnoticed by Pelosi. Obviously, Pelosi didn’t expect her statements to become public. Now, it remains to be seen if this evidence is used to hold her accountable or used in J6 defenses.

That WOULD APPEAR to be a FEDERAL Courthouse that was attacked, in which Federal Officers were forcefully barricaded in the building as it burned.

And don’t forget that the Chief of Capitol Police (Remember the scapegoat) ALSO asked for National Guard support.
