I think most people heard President Trump’s speech on Monday evening, July 1, 2020. If you didn’t, here’s an accurate transcript, one that wasn’t slaughtered by CNN and other Demoncrap media outlets. In it, he specifically stated the following:
That is why I am taking immediate presidential action to stop the violence and restore security and safety in America. I am mobilizing all available federal resources, civilian and military, to stop the rioting and looting, to end the destruction and arson, and to protect the rights of law-abiding Americans — including your second amendment rights.– President Trump’s Address to the Nation on Monday evening, July 1, 2020
Naturally, the Demoncraps screamed bloody murder. Key Demoncrap governors announced they’d rather allow the death and destruction in their states to continue than to ever follow President Trump’s lead.
Here’s what Demoncraps and libtards i.e. ignorant fools in Mudstream Media are saying:
The Constitution’s drafters understood that there would be circumstances in which local authorities were inadequate to protect the populace and enforce the laws, and so went out of their way not only to identify three circumstances in which troops could be used, but also to give the power to delimit those circumstances to Congress, not the president.Levin, S.

Yeah, okay. Whatever.
In the meantime, here’s what THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND and all Constitutionally lawful federal laws says about it:
The Constitution delimits this authority to Congress.
BY LAW, Congress conferred that authority to the President under “particular circumstances.”
Specifically, “The Insurrection Act of 1807 is a United States federal law (10 U.S.C. §§ 251–255; prior to 2016, 10 U.S.C. §§ 331–335) that empowers the president of the United States to deploy military troops within the United States in particular circumstances, such as to suppress civil disorder, insurrection and rebellion.”
So, what are those “particular circumstances?” Well, look up. It says, to “suppress civil disorder, insurrection and rebellion.”
Is there ANY doubt — any doubt WHATSOEVER — that what we’ve witnessed over the last several days in many cities televised all over Mudstream Media is somehow NOT “civil disorder, insurrection and rebellion?”
I REST MY CASE. The “Guardian” is WRONG. DEAD wrong.
