Trump is sending federal troops to cities to provoke riots so that he can declare a national emergency and postpone presidential elections. This is his opening effort at a coup d'état.

THAT was so interesting and informative. I have a question though. Wouldn't it just be easier for Donald Trump to make a new act, I mean if he really felt like it, just outright naming the protesters "insurrectionists" and sending the military against them, or is he doing this, like trying to trot out that old, heavily amended law, the insurection act of 1807, because is he trying to get his way this way, trying to argue like this old law is a precedent legally for himself because he knows no one would go for it politically, just letting our… Read more »

He is Not the President of the United States of America. He is only the leader of the Divided state of Americans – a totally distopian alternate existence.

I think the police should just walk and let the liberal cities fend for themselves. It would be great watching Hollywood trying to keep out the looters.

I'm sorry. How does the president need congressional approval to attack foreign lands with U.S. military but not need it to attack U.S. citizens that pay the military salaries?

If your Commander-in-chief issues a lawful order to shoot civilians then you should expect your soldiers to shoot you.
Why? Because it's the law. That's what you Americans worship, right? A nation of laws etc. Your heroic soldiers will follow orders, just like in every authoritarian country.
Please vote.

This is the federal government using armed forces against people in the country and also against the governments of the states. Ok, all you 2nd amendment folks, isn't this exactly the case you said you needed guns for. If not, then what exactly is the 2nd amendment even for? Why should anyone defend your right to have arms if you won't actually be the good guy with a gun stopping the government from overreach.

It sounds from what this gentleman is saying that, like hydroxychloroquine, once he learns to pronounce it, the Insurrection Act is just the kind of shiny bauble Childe Donald might get hold of and let it spin around beguilingly in his addled brain until he does something really stupid.

Seems to me like he is dead set on killing Americans
I guess the virus wasn’t fast enough so now he’s going
to bring in the military to finish the job wake up people
He’s trying to take your 1st amendment right away and
after that he’ll come for your second

The military can be sent to protect the people against tyranny not used against them especially when they are excercising their constitutional rights.the police are the cause of this mess .its their continued violations of citizens rights to protest and civil rights in general thats fueling the protest .police are turning it violent not protestors .

I'm going out in the morning and buy some flowers. I live near the flower mart in downtown
LA. I think I'll go get some flowers for the National Guard, and anyone else that just needs a pat on the back. We'll see.

You guys should see this from the outside. You'r scaring us, allowing this fool to continue. Your representative Schumer understood the damage Trump could do this year. My fear is that Chuck underestimated how far Trump would get. If you do nothing until the election then your killing your selves. That is what was going through Trudeau's mind in the 20 seconds it took him to speak

Trump, ""democracy", twas like taking candy from a baby. Now, BOW BEFORE ME!!" And the people bowed, some taking to the streets in righteousness of anger. The beast rose up, striking down those who dare defy him. Then the people cried with pain, saying, "How did we not see this, the face of the beast who came to us in kind, but for only a season? Now, we weep in continence, whaling, gnashing of teeth, saying, "We have been deceived." His beauty of speech led them away to the Lake of Fire, which is the second death. "BEHOLD", the beast… Read more »
