What are the black flags at the US Capitol and why are there so many buses around the Congress?

A number of requests have come in to film the black flags at the US Capitol building along with the seemingly endless parade of buses at the US Capitol. I went out yesterday to make some video of both of these things, but I also went through my archives over the last month and found some other videos that might be helpful.
In short, it seems the black flags are POW/MIA flags that are now required to be flown at the Capitol, the White House, military cemeteries, and post offices due to a law signed by President Trump in 2019. The National POW/MIA Flag Act, Public Law 116-67, was signed by President Trump on November 7, 2019 and should mean you’ll see this flag anytime you see the Capitol or White House on TV, or even when you visit your local post office.
The second question was about the buses. Why are their tour buses when there are no tourists? From what I’ve seen, the National Guard has been using these unused tourist buses as a shuttle service. I’ve gone back in my video files over the last month and pulled up some scenes of these buses moving around between the DC National Guard Armory, the Capitol and hotels and other locations downtown. I’ve seen them during the day and at night.
Is every single flag flying a POW/MIA flag? Is every single bus I see a National Guard bus? I can’t possibly know that. No one can. I can only show you what I see during my walks. If you have a specific place you want me to film, hit me up and I’ll try to take a hike down there so you can see it too.
Thanks for watching.

How many protesters do you see around DC? How many National Guard troops are being wasted there instead of at the border, where they are needed due to JB’s dictatorship? Do most ppl not like the fence or support it! So disgusting and UN AMERICAN? God help us!

Very sad. PLEASE: Yes wow ok This vid I am posting is long and a "conspiracy" piece and I, myself because of time constraints almost turned it off to watch at a later time...

Please please all Americans NEED to see this to understand exactly what is transpiring right now. God 🙏 bless us all.

Funny how our Dear President Trump never needed fences and National Guard troops surrounding him but this administration is so scared of the people they represent they feel the need to have extra protection and keep the people of the United States out.

Is this anything to do with troops entering and investigating the tunnels which we know exist beneath the streets of Washington, and by all accounts are used for very nefarious reasons.

The reason why the black flags are on the White House and tbe capital buildings is because they are prisoners of war the why the fence is still up so no one can get out.

As a USCG veteran, it sickens me to see the fencing around the Capital building and yet not where we need it the most, on our Southern Border. Now we know who the Privileged Class is, a Congress?

Canadian here...I think that's a wonderful sentiment flying the flag. My question is , aren't we supposed to be lowering our emissions? Like the pipeline not going through for that reason. I'm thinking those buses use a lot of fuel. Thanks again. I find this all interesting.

Isn't it amazing how the pos democRATS want a permanent wall round themselves but want the boarderwall torn down cause,you know, they're so worried about their dematard supporters health so much an all. Just sayin!
