National Guard troops fill US Capitol during Donald Trump impeachment debate

As the U.S. House of Representatives gathered on Wednesday to consider impeaching Donald J. Trump for his role in insurrection of the U.S. Capitol last week, National Guard troops lined the interior of the Capitol building, which just a week before was violently stormed by the president’s supporters.

At least 15,000 National Guard troops, included some armed members, have been ordered to Washington, D.C., to secure the city before president-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, with new fencing and other security measures engulfing the Capitol area.

    The National Guard should be employed at every state Capital to let these homegrown terrorists know America will not tolerate any more insurrection. They must show them a strong presence.

    If we allow what happened to the Capital Building on January 6th, to go unchecked it will happen again.

    I have never in my lifetime ever experienced such a gross violation of the office of the presidency.

    I have never seen such a undignified and immoral president and I hope that I never will or my children.

    No need to investigate Senate, all of America saw the rally and heard the President say,
    " now let's march to the Capital".

    That's it, that's all.

    Imagine how in trouble you'd be if you lost your nods in the Capitol and had to police the area before bedding down

    How come the Republican Senators and House are not enraged at the behavior of Trump and the insurrection of the Capital Building.

    They are not condemning his behavior and instead do not want to impeach the president siting for unity purposes.

    If they wanted unity then the Senate would have impeached and removed Trump months ago.

    Why did Trump tell the terrorists to March to the Capital and then went home to watch what happened next.

    I'm an artist and I wrote a Patriotic poem several years ago. My father was a retired Marine.
    I felt this is the time to share. It's called
    My Majestic Country

    This is my majestic country
    I love it unconditionally
    Tell me what I can do
    For my red white and blue

    Let's be thankful for our vast land
    That United all and provided hope
    We can't forget where we come from
    But most importantly where we must go

    We are a global symbol
    That all mankind can live in harmony
    That all people contribute equally
    There is no me
    But what must be done for this great country

    You are blind if you cannot see
    The opportunity
    The diversity
    The cultural unity
    The harmony

    The USA is the prime example
    Of the many diehard people
    That fought with all vitality
    To secure your comfort and destiny

    We are all under the sun
    But there is only one
    That brought together all of humanity
    To make this union a reality

    Together we stand
    Because we are in God’s hands
    Red white and blue
    We believe in you

    The next generation has to understand
    The faithful harvesting of our fruitful land
    The sacrifices that had to unfold
    To secure our world’s stronghold

    We stand proud to know that the USA’s future is not for me but you
    Rock your integrity
    Red white and blue
