Named the cost of using the National Guard in Washington during the protests


The US budget spent on the introduction of the National Guard in the capital to suppress the protests amounted to $ 21 million. This figure shows the situation on Friday and does not include the costs of law enforcement, which at that time were already in place.

This publication was published by Daily Beast by a representative of the US National Guard.

In the calculation, the costs of deploying units from 12 states in the metropolitan area of ​​Columbia were taken into account. Their task was to suppress the riots.

More than $ 18 million of the total amount was allocated to pay salaries and allowances to law enforcement officers. Almost 3 million went to other expenses, including transportation and housing. At the same time, the total estimated amount does not include the costs of aircraft that delivered the National Guard from other states to the District of Columbia. It also does not take into account the costs of other law enforcement units that were sent to the capital to fight protests.

According to Attorney General Bill Barr, the operation in the District of Columbia involved all the major services that are part of the Department of Justice, including the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Prison Bureau and the US Marshals Service.

Riots broke out in the US capital and several states after the murder of black man George Floyd by police in Minneapolis. Trump's decision to suppress the protests by force was criticized not only by the Democrats, but also by the Republicans.

Now in the USA, a new wave of protests began after the next killing of a black man by police.

        Well, that's right. The governor is elected by the people of a particular state, and in this particular state his order is more important than the order of the president, who was elected mainly by other states.

              I'll get it in if you don't mind. The crisis is really fraught. Against the backdrop of the pandemic and Washington’s inability to stop the mess in a country that is aggravating every day, this internal crisis could escalate into a global crisis due to the collapse of the dollar. S. Roach warns about this with his forecast:

          They counted belay . As our officials are direct. $ 21 million, but nothing is included. But in general? Well ... $ 70-120 million. And exactly? ... I think $ 300 million. that's enough. Preferably per day repeat

          Not more important. The president and the governor have their own powers. On matters within the competence of the federation, no American governor has the right to make any decisions. The mayor in the city within the state has his own powers. Here is the Governor of New York recently criticized the mayor of New York City. But he cannot be removed from office. By the way, not all cities in the United States mayors are elected by the population. There are different systems. And in some cities there are no mayors as such. Popularly elected mayors in some cities are simultaneously chairmen of the city council, while in others the principle of separation of representative and executive powers, both at the federal and state levels, operates. It all depends on the specific local specifics.

            I fully support that in the 60s of the XIX century, what is now - the civil war (or its vestibule today) is nothing more than a struggle only for power. If someone had already won and took power firmly, the black riot would have been drowned in blood without ceremony! While black warlords on the streets observe chaos, kneel white, demand $ 10 (racket under threat of violence) from each white at every next moment of time, make black feet wash, force and threaten networks to push the white community into the black channel protest is only a maneuver.
            If Biden wins, then the black protest will either disappear, or he will be washed away with the blood of the patriots, declaring this a battle for democracy and the legacy of the founding fathers. And no LGBT, Feminists, Antifa with BLM assault rifles will help, the National Guard and the army will shoot anyone under a solid order from above with a firm order from above - violation of self-isolation or any other reason - it is better that it is more - less hypocritical, then it definitely does!

      And please voice the loss of looted stores? And insurance payments for them, and burnt buildings and cars ... The US National Guard is a militia run by a state governor. Which occasionally undergo training at the training camps, and cannot be compared with the regular troops ... Of course, they can against the crowd ... But no one really gave the order ...

        They have aircraft in the National Guard, and tanks, and artillery, and they are often sent abroad. The national guards of all states have a united command throughout the United States. which is appointed by the federal authorities. The statutes there are all-American. Etc. etc. In addition, in the event of a war, military or emergency situation, the federal authorities may transfer the units of NG to direct federal subordination. That is, autonomy of NG in the United States is very relative. And no one comes up with the idea to oppose it to the US Army, Navy and Air Force.

        But during the riots, their participants practically do not use firearms. They understand that the police, the National Guard and the Armed Forces in this case will not stand on ceremony with them, they will beat to defeat. And no one is fighting with corrupt officials using a personal firearm.

    It is not appropriate to count money when there is a conversation about the life of poor and miserable niggas. They are constantly oppressed and offended by all and sundry, forced to live on beggarly allowances and are forbidden to bargain with substances and rob shops. And the American authorities are counting losses from the National Guard - that’s who the real enemy of Democracy is and the violator of human rights!

He is for America to be the world leader, but he is against it being the world gendarme. The globalist elite hates him for this, so they staged a "black maidan". Warning to obey.
