Lots of chatter overnight and this morning over at Spitballers channel on Telegram about the National Guard being called out to 14 states to safeguard against election fraud.
Please see my post “Got that?” to bring you up to speed own the topic.
Here’s what some Spitballers are discussing:
The 14 states with National Guard teams on duty on election day are North Carolina, Arizona, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, New Mexico, New York, Washington, and West Virginia.
Perhaps President Trump issued a sealed PEAD authorizing Wartime Presidential privilege to mobilize State National Guard troops? I don’t know. 🤷♀️
Trump saying very very very soon makes me really believe desertification..what about you guys?
Invoking the Insurrection Act is a Posse Comitatus Act exception and would preclude needing a Governor’s permission. But, when Pres Trump was asked if he had invoked the IA, he stated, “…The fact is I didn’t need to invoke the Act and never did.”
I think there are several possibilities as to why he didn’t need to…..
Suspension of Habeas Corpus or exception to Posse Comitatus. The Posse Comitatus Act bars federal troops from participating in civilian law enforcement except when expressly authorized by law. I think it’s likely that Trump may have issued PEADs for suspension of habeas corpus or posse comitatus.
Note the language in Suspension of the Writ of Habeas Corpus –
“In response to chaos associated with protests and mob action,” U.S. Const. Article I, Section 9, the Suspension Clause states: “The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, UNLESS when in Cases of Rebellion or INVASION the public Safety may require it.”
US Constitution, Article 1, Sec 10, Clause 3 states:
• “No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually INVADED, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.”
Notice the keywords, “UNLESS ACTUALLY INVADED” and ‘IMMINENT DANGER”.
Under the National Defense Act, the Pres has the authority to federalize NG and mobilize, in a crisis or national emergency, but that is not usually for purposes of law enforcement or quelling violence.
Trump has said that, “Joe Biden has launched a FOREIGN INVASION of his own country.”
An invasion I think would qualify as a national emergency.
Pres Trump has referred to our country as “a great sovereign nation,” and said that Biden has shown contempt for his oath of office. The statement about Biden launching a” foreign invasion of his own country,” has a direct link to violations of the Guarantee Clause in the Constitution. Article IV, Sec 4 of the Constitution, which requires the United States to guarantee every State a Republican form of government and provide “PROTECTION FROM FOREIGN INVASION” and domestic violence. There are countries from around the world invading us.
Q told us that the National Guard could work in coordination with the marines. There are quite a few posts which refer to Marines working with NG.
For example, Post #22
“Who controls the NG?
Why was the NG recently activated in select cities within the US?
Can the NG work in coordination w/ the MARINES?
Do conditions need to be satisfied to authorize?
What former President used the military to save the republic and what occurred exactly?
Biggest drop to ever be provided on Pol. Study and prepare. The masses tend to panic in such situations.
No war. No civil unrest. Clean and swift.”
And if we have already devolved to military control, as I think we have, then the pre-set PEADs are in place in order to partner with NG, to thwart the invasion, quell violence etc.
I hope this will not be seen as D00M – I’m just trying to understand some things …
Though I’ve dived deep into some details in your history – I have next to NO knowledge about so much else in the US.
I think I know that National Guard is called by the States (Governors?) – not the Executive Branch, right?
I looked at those 14 states – in the article you posted – and their governors:
Arizona: Rep (RINO?) – North Carolina: Dem – Iowa: Rep – Pennsylvania: Dem – Colorado: Dem – Connecticut: Dem – Delaware: Dem – Hawaii: Dem – Illinois: Dem – Louisiana: Dem – New Mexico: Dem – New York: Dem – Washington: Dem – West Virginia: Dem/Rep (changed horse in the middle of the race?)
WV is probably still a dem, right? And Arizona’s a Rhino, right?
I.e 13 of 14 states have dems as governors.
So why is it a good thing that the National Guard is called in?
Or did you post it as a good thing?
Of course, they would love to federalize elections. Rush Limbaugh used to talk about it for years.
Have you seen this article, about Biden wanting to federalize elections?
… please tell me I should just think “Nice try Biden – it’s not gonna work”
I just posted a thread by Brian Cates on his channel here it might help answer some questions.
Operating with CISA and DHS. Not so sure that’s a good thing. And the end says they’ll be monitoring social media for dis/miss info. Ugh
I’m no expert on this,
However, it appears that there are times when the President can deploy the National Guard. All the articles I’ve read state that the NG Cyber security teams are Federalized.
I believe any changes to elections that do not go through proper Constitutional methods will not permitted. If Biden does this, he will be sued.
Also found this…
“What is a President’s authority to send in federal troops?
“As currently worded, the Insurrection Act allows the president to call up the active military or federalize the National Guard under three circumstances:
At the request of a state. That’s how it was most recently used, when Pete Wilson, then the governor of California, asked for federal help in 1992 to control violent protests after police officers were acquitted in the attack on Rodney King.
To enforce federal law. In 1987, President Ronald Reagan ordered the Defense Department to provide military units to help suppress violence at a federal prison in Atlanta. The disturbance was over before the troops arrived.
To protect civil rights. This provision authorizes the president to use the military to suppress “any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy” if local law enforcement is unable to provide sufficient protection. It doesn’t require the request — or even the permission — of the state. President Dwight D. Eisenhower used the power to send elements of the 101st Airborne Division to Little Rock, Arkansas, and to federalize the entire state National Guard to enforce court-ordered school desegregation. Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson invoked the same authority to enforce other desegregation orders in Mississippi and Alabama.”
Right, but 3 still includes the wording that he can call up the NG to repel invasion or suppress the rebellion. Election day would be neither. Depending on the outcome is another matter, meaning one may occur. The order would be premature until it happens, hence illegal, IMO. 🤷♀
#3 covers Civil Rights
Brian Cates thread from Truth.
OK, so Brian is saying this is not the blue state Governors’ or Biden calling up the NG, this is a WH operation, if I am reading this right? That was my original thought…
NY State will be having NG around as well – I’ll post the article below
If these cyber security teams are special operations that were set up under the previous administration and classified instead of under Biden then he can’t stop them. He was never read in. The information they gather could be catastrophic to Dems and RINOs. This may be why Adam Schiff was pushing legislation to keep evidence collected by the military from being used in any courts or hearings. Just a thought.
Watching Real America’s Voice and they keep scrolling that the Illinois National Guard is being deployed to help with election security. I’ve seen NG has been deployed in 14 states. I’m wondering why IL is being singled out. Any thoughts?
Interesting his [Trump at rally] mentioning they’ve been on to the cheaters for SIX years….kinda goes along with the National Guard monitoring the elections….read Brian Cates over at TS.
You notice [Adm] Rogers kinda disappeared though? He retired I know but I’ve always wondered if he is IN ON the cyber Space Force and/or the National Guard cyber force that is monitoring the elections.
IMO, Rogers, as former director of the NSA, is some sort of coordinated for the Plan… he would know all about the criminals that need to be arrested
