Yesterday, it was announced that permanent fencing would be coming to the US Capitol. For many Americans, this is an alarming new development.
PERMANENT SECURITY FENCING coming to US Capitol.

When President Trump was inside the White House, and BLM/Antifa rioters attacked Secret Service protecting the perimeter, the Left mocked him for taking cover in the bunker. No one ever suggested the fencing wasn’t sufficient to protect President Trump from the relentless violent protestors.
Washington DC’s Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser tweeted about some “potentially volatile events upcoming” that require the extra fencing and additional troops around the city. She also claimed that these massive security additions would not be permanent.
1/ Based on conversations with federal partners, there are some potentially volatile events upcoming that will require extra security. Fencing and the presence of troops will be a part of that. But we will not accept extra troops or permanent fencing as a long-term fixture in DC.
2/ When the time is right, the fencing around the White House and U.S. Capitol, just like the plywood we’ve seen on our businesses for too long, will be taken down.
3/ We look forward to working with Congresswoman Norton on not only ensuring continued public access to the Capitol, but also preventing any proposed security installations from intruding into our local neighborhoods.

Here’s another view of Biden’s new America:

As if COVID isn’t already killing businesses across America, Washington DC is locked down like a war zone, and third-rate hack reporters like Jane Mayer of the New Yorker takes to Twitter to mock the lack of customers at the Trump International Hotel in DC. She never mentions Trump’s hotel is only steps away from the militarized zone.
“Trump Hotel, DC- Looks like they drained the swamp,” she writes.

The anti-Trump Daily Mail shared “then and now” photos of the Trump International Hotel in DC. In their hit-piece on the Trump property, there is no mention of the militarized zone outside of the hotel.
Instead of talking about how COVID lockdowns are destroying hotels and restaurants in DC or how the increased presence of troops, police, and barbed wire isn’t exactly a big draw for tourists, they write:
The property has the three-pronged problem of no more Trumps, COVID restrictions that had kept the restaurants closed for the past month – and signs that suggest business simply isn’t wanted.
A sign posted to fencing around the hotel’s main driveway reads: ‘Hotel Guests & Invitees Access Only.’
We may not know what’s going on in DC, but there’s one thing we do know for certain—we can’t rely on the Democrat Party media to honestly report about it.
