As Kennedy dealing with that piece of crap Wallace shows, a President does not require the govenor asking for aid to invoke the insurrection act.

Peacful protestors burns church, no, democrats and leftist media such as CNN sponsored destruction, looting and physical violence, killing and murder in some instances. President Trump seeks to provide a safe and secure environment where Americans are free to live and work , without violent and destructive outbursts from disenfranchised minorities.

BULLSHIT!De facto the Insurrection Act does NOT require a request of a state government. 6 out of total 20 times – or in other words 30% of the time – invoking the insurrection act did NOT include a state request. —– EDIT: The Insurrection Act has historically gone directly against a state's will even, such as the "Stand in the Schoolhouse Door" event, during John F. Kennedy's presidency, where the governor of Alabama had deployed the National Guard to prevent people of color to integrate in to white schools, to which John F. Kennedy responded by invoking the Insurrection Act,… Read more »

George HW Bush used the insurrection act during the LA riots in 92. It’s not unprecedented and wouldn’t be that crazy.
That being said, I think it would be unnecessary for Trump to invoke the act because from what I understand the national guard and police departments are starting to get a handle on the violence and the riots.

CNN is either ignorant or stupid. The insurrection act allows a prez to overide any state officials objection to military presents when the prez feels that the state in not under control of their own civil unrest.

We must force our lawmakers to curb a presidents behavior SUBSTANTIALLY. Others have now seen how easily we can go down by just a simple unethical man in the WH. Somebody is watching, wheels turning, planning his own presidency with intent to overthrow the US entirely. If we don't curb a presidents powers in the US, we will be sunk. (If we aren't already.)

I know many people find it odd that he wants to invoke the insurrection act but look at what these rioters are doing. I wouldn't hold it against Trump to call on the military when people are destroying multiple city blocks. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

dreaming of how life can be

no them and us, just you and me

no rich or poor, no hate or war

where everybody knows the score

no justice…there's no justice

dreaming of a brighter day

where everybody gets a say

where no one lives out on the streets

and no one has to steal to eat

no justice…there's no justice

living with reality

no justice in society

a mother cries, a baby die

and politicians tell you lies

no justice…theres no justice
