BREAKING: D.C. National Guard General ORDERED TO STAND DOWN During Trump Inauguration- Here’s What We Know

In a highly unusual move, higher orders are forcing the highest ranking military officer who heads the Washington, D.C. National Guard to be removed at exactly 12:01 p.m. Jan. 20, just as Donald Trump is sworn in as president.

The officer, Maj. Gen. Schwartz was not given a reason, and one can only wonder whether or not it signals a potential coup or threat to the incoming administration.

As The Washington Post reports, Schwartz’s departure will come in the middle of the presidential ceremony — classified as a national special security event — and while thousands of his troops are deployed to help protect the nation’s capital during an inauguration he has spent months helping to plan.

“The timing is extremely unusual,” Schwartz said in an interview Friday morning, confirming a memo announcing his ouster that was obtained by The Washington Post.

During the inauguration, Schwartz would command not only the members of the D.C. guard but also an additional 5,000 unarmed troops sent in from across the country to help. He also would oversee military air support protecting the nation’s capital during the inauguration.

“My troops will be on the street,” Schwartz, who turned 65 in October, said, “I’ll see them off but I won’t be able to welcome them back to the armory.” He said that he would “never plan to leave a mission in the middle of a battle.”

Schwartz, who was appointed to head the guard by President George W. Bush in 2008, maintained the position through President Obama’s two terms. He said his orders came from the Pentagon but that he doesn’t know who made the decision.

D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (D) blasted the decision to remove Schwartz, especially on Inauguration Day.

“It doesn’t make sense to can the general in the middle of an active deployment,” Mendelson said. He added that Schwartz’s sudden departure would be a long-term loss for the District. “He’s been really very good at working with the community and my impression was that he was good for the Guard.”

Unlike in the states, where the governor appoints the National Guard commander, in the District that duty falls to the president. That president is Barack Hussein Obama. 
Schwartz said he will work up until that moment, and then plans to retire from the Army. “I’m a soldier,” he said. “I’m a presidential appointee. Therefore, the president has the power to remove me.”
What in the hell is Obama trying to pull here?
This seems very suspicious.

    Looks like Obama’s trying to set Trump up to be assassinated! Someone needs to arrest Obama right NOW!

    • IF (and that’s a very BIG “if”) Barry is involved, there will likely be no way to tie him directly to any conspiracy or to any attempt. No arrest could be made because no judge would sign a warrant.

  2. Street Detective says:

    There’s nothing unusal here. We just don’t want this ly||ng son||a}|||ch in charge.

    🚨If the left’s lips are moving, they are apparently lying or deluded.

    The Michael “Smores;” the Joy “PeeHards” and Whoopi “Dupies” of TV’s The Skew; the Alec “Shmecklewins;” and every over-privileged, over-rich, filthy, stupid, lying, Hollywood scum, Fake News pervert, and drug addict.

    The Trumponian Message would be: don’t listen to them; don’t look at them; don’t BUY ANYthing they are selling.

    Don’t buy their CDs, don’t buy the products they hawk on TV, don’t go to their inane movies, don’t visit their stupid sites, don’t listen to them on the radio.

    Don’t watch them on their Fake News TV, don’t buy tickets to see them do ANYthing, and especially don’t watch their dumb, leftist-activist, TV “shows.”

    If they are among the low-life, scheming, oily, lying, Schumer-Obama type, leftist, lib politicians, don’t believe any lying word they say, defund them, block their plots, “find them, fix them in place, isolate them, and ridicule them.” (To paraphrase their own leader, Saul Alinksky)

    Think, you might actually wipe them out financially or have them praising Trump in about 6 weeks? 👍🏼
    .
    How about maybe you pass this idea on and forward?

    With the liberals calling for a riot. Obama is going to clear the way for them. As with Ferguson where he kept the National Guard out for 3 months of rioting. He said that he couldn’t understand why it didn’t spread to other cities. George Soros had to bus in agitators to get the other cities to riot. This is his last chance as President to create whole scale rioting. It will be up to the citizens to control the rioting liberals. Perhaps as with the Cleveland RNC thousands of police showed up to provide security. It seems that some riot control gear, dogs, horses, vehicles, fire fighters with high pressure water hoses. Since our president once again refuses to protect us. We will have to do it our selves. Although he fully intends to radicalize his followers after he is out of office. He has created enough riots without there being another one now.

  4. Cynthia Campbell says:

    Obama did this to allow one of his own crooked cronies to step in and harm or assassinate president Trump. Obama has gone over the edge and become an even more dangerous and psychotic individual.

  5. Cynthia Campbell says:

    In ONE WEEK Obama uses his office to exact cruel, murderous revenge on the Cubans living in America (who are conservative and religious), he stole thousands of acres in Utah and Nevada belonging to conservative ranchers, he conspired with John McCain and others to bring president Trump down with illegally manufactured falsehoods, and he tried to foist punitive regulations on the coal, oil and gas industries. The man is evil, unhinged, vengeful and dangerous. I have prayed for 8 years for some brave soul to solve the Obama problem, but my prayers have gone unanswered.

  6. More fake news from wapo, their article said Trump accepted his resignation, not obummer.

  7. brenda coyne says:

    OBAMA WANTS HIM MR TRUMP DEAD, THERE ALL JUST TO SURE OF THEM SELVES , THE GENERAL NEED TO PROTECT PRESIDENT TRUMP, THE PEOPLE WILL DO THE REST JUST YOU WAIT AND SEE , THEY WILL NOT STAND FOR IT AND YES OBAMA WANTS MARSHELL LAW, WE ALL KNOW HIS UP TO SOMETHING HE WANT HILLARY TO CARRY ON HIS JOB.

  8. Illegal order that can be ignored by the military. If he wants to remove him at 11:59 so be it. But at 12:01 Obama has no authority to relieve anyone. Basically attempting to cause confusion.

  9. Is the new General that’s going to be in charge one of BO’s feet kissers?

  10. Xcalifornian says:

    The reason for this timing is intuitively obvious: create a leadership vacuum at the moment of Trump’s
    inauguration so “protestors” can have free reign to create anarchy. During that period of anarchy anything can happen as other commentators point out.

  11. Tempey Cooper says:

    THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE OBAMA YOU WILL NOT WIN JESUS CHRIST WILL BE IN CONTROL HE WILL PROTECT OUR BELOVED MR TRUMP. JESUS IS KING!!!

  12. KinderBenzer says:

    The more comments I read on this site the more convinced I am that many of you are only marginally sane. Do none of you understand the concept of transfer of power, and how that works?

  13. Alan Hastings says:

    The traitor liberals will try anything to keep Trump from being sworn in. Obama was sworn twice both times once in a secret location so that when sworn in, in public he was already in power and give the order to arrest any and all protesters and hold them indefinitely. Trump should follow that example.

  14. IS DEMOCRATIC REPRESENTATIVE — JOHN LEWIS ILLEGITIMATE?

  15. I am curious about the qualifications of his replacement. Will he be replaced by another general officer immediately upon his relief? Or will his assistant, likely a brigadier general, replace him pending either promotion to major general or the appointment of another major general as commander? This is very unusual indeed. I certainly hope there is nothing nefarious afoot.
