Update: There are now reportedly over 15,000 National Guard troops inside the Capital Region.
It is no longer a big secret that over 6,200 National Guard troops were deployed to the DC Capitol Region over the weekend as tensions and rumors mount.
There is speculation on the Internet that well over 7,000 troops now occupy the territory.
Some federal buildings in the district have been fenced and barricaded off from the general public as the run-up to the transition of presidential power approaches.
An armed group has vowed to stop the transition of President-elect Joe Biden at all costs.
The rebels plan to arrive in DC Saturday to surround key buildings to “defend America.”
Video footage posted to Twitter shows the military buildup.
Security forces have been watching the area as workers continue to erect fencing outside the capitol and other structures.
Large 2-1/2 ton truck are blocking access to critical streets.
What are your thoughts on what is happening in DC? Why is there such a military presence? What’s coming?
