First, from Stacy McCain, Trump Approved 10,000 National Guard for Jan. 6, But Pelosi Rejected Troop
This should be huge news:
President Donald Trump has confirmed reports he requested 10,000 National Guard troops ahead of the January 6th rally in Washington, D.C., only to be rebuffed by authorities.Read the whole thing. Don’t expect to see this on CNN.
Speaking [to] Steve Hilton on “The Revolution,” the former president outlined how he knew in advance of the crowd size:
“Everyone said we’ll be at the rally. It was, I think, the largest crowd that I have ever spoken to before. I have spoken to big crowds, hundreds of thousands of people, more than that, but hundreds of thousands of people.”In response, Trump said he “gave the number” to the Department of Defense, insisting that 10,000 members of the National Guard would be needed.
“They took that number, from what I understand, they gave it to people at the Capitol, that is controlled by Pelosi, and I heard they rejected it because they didn’t think it would look good,” added Trump in the interview after his Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) speech.
Trump’s comments follow reports that Pelosi discouraged the Sergeant at Arms from deploying the force and an implausible timeline whereby Pelosi approved a request for the National Guard before it was even received by former Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving.
The news confirms reporting from Vanity Fair, mostly ignored by the mainstream media . . .

"Whoops! This story is from last August. Apologies. Hey everybody make sure you vote. Your vote really "counts." Your Swampy Frenz in the GOP are really determined to make your vote "count."
Well, they have enough signatures, but they're still collecting them.
See, because Newsom will attempt to disqualify many signatures for having an erroneous address or for the signature not matching the voter signature on file.
Weird how now we're checking that again, huh? Seems that even though we still have a pandemic on, we check addresses and signatures when there's a Democrat incumbent.
So while they've got more than the 1.5 million signatures they need for a recall, they have to get extra when the Democrats crank up the signature-verification threshold to 115%. (Up from 0% in the last election.)
Capital Research Center names names, The Groups and Persons Mentioned in Time’s “Shadow Campaign” Article so you know who really determines who runs this country (now).
CRC staff drafted a memo listing the 24 groups and 23 persons mentioned in the article, along with some additional information. The entries are organized by group and then person, roughly in the order of appearance. Each entry includes, if available:
- A link to the group or person’s InfluenceWatch entry, which usually has additional information,
- A paraphrase of the Time article’s description of the group or person, and
- Bullet points that highlight facts of interest about the group or person.
