Top National Guard General Forced To Refute Foreign Disinfo About National Shutdown

(Tea Party 247) – On Friday, a National Guard general shot down false rumors of martial law soon being introduced in the United States as troops continue to be called up amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“I hear unfounded rumors about #NationalGuard troops supporting a nationwide quarantine,” tweeted Gen. Joseph Lengyel, chief of the National Guard Bureau. “Let me be clear: There has been no such discussion.”

Lengyel’s tweet comes as many people across the US have reported receiving text messages warning of impending martial law, which prompted authorities to assure Americans these messages were entirely fake.

US defense officials are warning that foreign actors could be using this unstable time to spread chaos and disinfo amid widespread panic among the public.

Across the country, governors continue to deploy guardsmen in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Over 3,000 have been activated across almost 30 states to assist with efforts to contain the outbreak.

Fox News explains:

Troops in New York, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Louisiana and Michigan, among other states, are supporting relief efforts. Their mission includes disinfecting public spaces, distributing food, assisting with transportation and logistical support of health officials, and collecting and delivering samples, the Guard said in a news release.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Friday said there are plans to bring coronavirus test kits from Italy to the U.S. The announcement comes days after the Air Force delivered 500,000 medical swabs to Memphis to be distributed around the country by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Army leaders have also closed recruiting stations across the nation to further aid in the prevention of the virus’ spread.

“We are going to basically virtual recruiting, much of that is done on social media and that allows us to protect our soldiers and also protect the new recruits,” Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville told reporters at the Pentagon.

A few recruits have been found to have symptoms of the virus, according to the Army Times.

The branch has reduced the number of those in training and currently operating at 50 percent capacity for intakes, according to the paper.

  1. I guess we don’t have a national quarantine, since y’all send heavily armed THUGS to storm state capitals to keep it that way, getting everyone SICK in the bprocess!

  2. Wow!! Somethings never change. I am one of those African American, US Marine, Combat Veterans, who finds your “Sand Nigger” comments offensive. I have served in many wars in the middle east, and first heard the word ” Sand Nigger”, in the first Gulf War in 1990 thru 1991. I feel ashamed and foolish, for laying my life on the line countless times, in Defense of bigots. Still love you Mr. Or Ms., and hope that one day, we minorities, will be called American..

  4. The notion propagated by the MSM and their Democrat stooges that martial law is soon to be declared by the Trump Administration is a CLASSIC example of the Alinskyite tactic of PROJECTION, or falsely attacking the political opposition (in this case, Republicans) for taking actions that the Democrats themselves would undertake were THEY in power! It can reasonably be called the MIRROR SYNDROME, as anyone suffering such delusions may as well be looking at themselves in a mirror! Of course, were the Democrats in charge such a political action would be positively disastrous!

  5. Foreign actors, RussiaRussiaRussia, China, NOKO, Iran and some others will always spread and forment chaos in the USA.
    MSM, enemy of the people, get smart and stop doing their work for.
