Post count: 1030

I think the number is 7000 and I don’t think that includes any of the 3000+ of the Washington NG that available. Then you have the Maryland and Virginia NG’s just round the corner who can be mobilized at short notice if there were truly a threat.

I would like to come up with some conspiracy theory that would warrant this number of troops but I can’t for the life of me think of one. I can only think that the Dems are doing this simply because they can and are flexing their muscles. Intimidating. If so I am not sure what they are trying to achieve, but it’s the only thing has a modicum of sense about it.
