US Troops Given Green Light to Aid Police in Potential D.C. Protests


( – Over the weekend, the world watched Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau activate emergency powers and snuff out the Freedom Convoy protests in Ottowa. Now, as similar convoys are forming in America, the United States government is moving troops into Washington, D.C., ahead of their arrival.

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin recently approved a request to bring National Guard troops in to assist Capitol and local police in handling a potential protest. Hundreds of soldiers are set to arrive in D.C. along with military support vehicles.

Among the troops being tapped for the task are 400 D.C. National Guard members and an additional 300 Guardsmen from surrounding states. John Kirby, the Pentagon’s chief spokesperson, claims these soldiers will “support the United States Capitol Police officers with traffic control operations.”

If that wasn’t enough, the government is also putting the steel fence up around the Capitol building once again — the same one used following the events on January 6, 2021. Allegedly, this is to protect Joe Biden as he gives his State of the Union address on March 1.

While the Freedom Convoy in Canada was ultimately put to a violent end by police, America has to wait and see how the events in D.C. will play out. Will it be another peaceful protest against government overreach, or will Biden’s administration take a page out of Tredeau’s book and edge toward tyranny?

Modern Survival Tips

Modern Survival is a publication that encourages its readers to be prepared citizens who can self-sustain, particularly in the aftermath of a large-scale or grid-down disaster. Their philosophy is to help individuals learn how to be ruggedly self-reliant, rather than reliant on the government, emergency services, or their extended families, neighbors, and friends in the wake of an emergency situation.

After a major disaster, emergency services and police protection are typically stretched extremely thin. Being prepared to survive after a disaster allows first responders to respond to those who need their help most. Survivalists seek to free up emergency services, resources, and assistance, effectively moving themselves to the back of the priority line because they have the skills to survive, and sometimes thrive, while others may not.

Life is full of unknowns, and it doesn’t take events like a major natural disaster or man-made terror attack for survival skills to be useful. In addition to the worst-case scenarios most people imagine, there are many everyday survival situations that individuals and families run into, as well. From ice storms to getting lost in the woods, Modern Survival shares tips to help readers brush up on their survival skills.

Modern Survival’s mission is to help people and families prepare to face the unknown, and come out on the other side. From wilderness survival tips to building a prepper pantry, this publication is dedicated to educating readers in the skills of our predecessors. They believe that modern society has effectively eliminated survival education, and they’re committed to bringing awareness to as many readers as possible.

As one of the most useful survival resources on the web, Modern Survival provides weekly news, tips, resources, tactics, and even skill development courses. They aim to keep their readers informed, protected, healthy, and happy, no matter what life brings their way.
