The acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security during the capitol incursion, Ken Cuccinelli, made an alarming revelation during an interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on her show, “The Story” on Jan. 20.
In the video below, MacCallum pointed out that the presence of 25,000 National Guard troops deployed to Washington, D.C. ahead of the inauguration was several times the troop levels currently serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Agreeing with MacCallum, Cuccinelli replied that 25,000 troops was the equivalent of an entire division. He then disclosed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had requested the “last up of the final troops” and had asked for crew-manned machine guns.
Does this demand to massacre people with machine guns for occupying the Capitol sound like a government of the people? Especially since she had been warned days earlier of an impending event. An event of unarmed people who were “let” in by guards in some cases and who started the occupation prior to the arrival of anyone who attended the President’s speech. I will not call a protest of unarmed people a riot regardless of how many political talking heads characterize it as one. If you want to see riots, go tonight to Portland or Seattle.
The penalty for treason can be death depending on the circumstances. I believe an illegal overthrow of a government is the highest form of treason. Age, position or wealth should not be considered when these traitors are found guilty.
