It Looks Like Biden Is Listening to Those Who Don't Want Him to Debate Trump
Building on the groundwork laid by liberals like Nancy Pelosi and the New York Times' Thomas Friedman – who implored Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to skip the upcoming presidential debates with President Trump, unless Trump agrees to be real-time fact-checked by a media that hates him – Joe Biden called for live fact-checkers on Wednesday.

"I’ve begun to prepare by going over what the president has said, and the multiple lies he’s told," Biden said during a rare news conference when asked whether there was anything that would dissuade the candidate from participating in the debates.

President Trump visits Kenosha, Wisconsin: “President Trump Saved Kenosha”
By Pamela Geller / THE GELLER REPORT
He’s a legend.  
President Trump just finished thanking law enforcement officers in Kenosha, Wisconsin, for their efforts helping to quell violence and protect neighborhoods from additional damage after a series of violent riots last week.

“Law enforcement has just done such a great job working with the National Guard and working with a lot of people . . . We’re here to show our support for Kenosha,” President Trump said.

Coming to a City Near You...Maybe 
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on Right Side Patriots Radio 

"If a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them."  
- President Donald Trump, June 8, 2020 

President Trump has had enough...the attack on Senator Rand Paul and his wife after leaving the Republican National Convention seems to have been the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back. Now seriously considering invoking the “Insurrection Act” to end the 90+ days of rioting, looting, mayhem, and murder, our president has rightfully placed the blame for all that has gone wrong squarely on the shoulders of the Democratic mayors and governors who are willfully allowing their cities to not only go up in flames, but who refuse to stop the violence that seems to be overtaking not only the rule of law, but common decency and civility as well. 

And with the “rule of law” being but a foreign concept to these what President Trump callsthugs”...the happenings after the convention saw a large and growing number of “thugs” surrounding, threatening, and intimidating the invited guests, Senator Rand Paul and his wife included, upon their leaving the White House. And while President Trump correctly blamed the very person responsible for the in Washington, D.C.'s Democrat mayor, one Muriel Bowser...for what he described as “a failure to gain control of protests in the city,” the reality is why would she try to gain control of the thugs when she herself is, if not actually one of the thug's supporters, at least one of their condoners. 

And so our “law and order” president...the very president who knows there exists no systemic racism nor widespread police brutality here in our country...the very president who has said defunding America's police departments will not happen on his watch...has now come face to face with those who say he does not have the Constitutional authority to impose the “Insurrection Act.” But I say these naysayers are wrong especially when the presidential oath of office, as per Article II, Section I of the Constitution reads as follows, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

These were the very words that Donald J. Trump solemnly and with the utmost reverence repeated when on January 20, 2017 he placed his hand on both his family Bible and the Bible that President Abraham Lincoln used on his first inauguration, and became our 45th President of these United States. And these are words President Trump seriously takes to heart, and besides, nowhere in the Constitution itself is the sitting president told to “stand down” and do nothing while American cities are burned to the ground while their mayors and governors sit back and do nothing...except to add political fuel to the fire that is. 

But herein lies the problem for remember this in regards to “insurrection”...if the governors of the states and/or the mayors of the cities at risk do not “invite” the feds in to help restore “law and order”....if they do not officially call the ongoing rioting and mayhem an “insurrection”...some believe there's little President Trump can legally do. But there are things a president can do after certain specific criteria are met...criteria which includes proving that those rebelling against authority are arming themselves to do so. And to that add that there are statutory restrictions on “posse comitatus” relating to the use of “private parties” to enforce the law...private parties” in this case being the extent to which the military may be used for law enforcement purposes. But when police hands are tied, when the police are prevented from doing the job they were tasked with doing, exceptions to “posse comitatus” do allow President Trump to invoke the “Insurrection Act” to help keep the populace safe. 

Now regarding the “Insurrection Act” act adopted in 1807 that authorizes the president, at the request of a state government, to “federalize the National Guard” and to deploy and use active duty military forces on U.S. soil to suppress and put an end to insurrection against a state's government... local governments included...or its citizens. The “Insurrection Act” also allows the president to invoke said act without the “explicit consent” of a state's governor or its state's legislature if it becomes both “impracticable to enforce” federal laws through “ordinary proceedings” or if states are unable or unwilling to safeguard its citizens “civil rights” against dangerous and destructive forces. And if President Trump can make such a case...a case we see unfolding everyday on the news and on the internet... the “Insurrection Act” can and should be ordered even without his securing a local official's request. 

And here let it be known that “civil rights” are not just rights afforded BLM and Antifa protesters, rioters, looters, arsonists, and the Democrats and liberal media are trying hard to make you believe...but are rights afforded to all “We the People” America's citizenry in it's our right to live our lives free of fear, retribution, mayhem, and violence at the hands of those who are doing any and everything to state their grievances but not by “peaceably assembling,” which is what our Constitution's First Amendment says “assembly” must be. 

And while the above seems a logical given, it's here where nonsensical and dangerous word semantics comes into play and it starts and ends with the “Posse Comitatus Act”...the very act which prohibits the federal government from using military forces to act as a police force within U.S. borders...the “Insurrection Act” seems to counter the “Posse Comitatus Act” and visa-versa. But things are not always what they appear to be on the surface for a state's governor can indeed “call-up” the National Guards to de-escalate tensions but only as an adjunct to, not take the place of, the police. However, what's different with today's situation is that with the police basically being rendered impotent due to their not being able to do their per “stand down orders,” defunding, and in some cases (as in Seattle) actual being disbanded...the law continues to be broken by rioters, looters, arsonists and thugs, while Democrat mayors and governors give them an okay wink and a nod by doing not a thing to stop the escalated violence now increasingly being perpetrated on innocent, mostly white, folks. 

So how can President Trump legally institute the “Insurrection Act”...I believe by throwing the “Posse Comitatus Act” back in the Democrats, BLM, and Antifa's America-hating faces. What many don't know or simply ignore is the fact that the “Insurrection Act” has already been used a number of times, especially to protect black folks from folks fighting for both civil rights and desegregation. For example, in 1871, Congress actually reformed the “Insurrection Act,” and by default the “Posse Comitatus Act,” to allow then President Ulysses S. Grant to use military troops to enforce newly designated civil rights; in 1957 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to desegregate schools in South Carolina after violence broke out; in 1962 by J.F.K. in Mississippi for the same reason; and again in 1965 by L.B.J. to protect civil rights marchers in Selma, Alabama against what was feared to come violence.  

In other words, U.S. troops were sent in on these president's orders to protect the “civil rights” of black folks and President Trump can do the same, but this time to protect not only black folks' “civil rights,” but also the “civil rights” of white, brown, yellow and red folks who are, if truth be told, the innocent victims being affected by BLM and Antifa's violent and destructive actions...and our president doesn't need their Democrat enablers permission to do just that. 

The “rule of law” is the “rule of law” and should be instituted fairly across the board including for those affected by the folks behaving badly. And to get the “Insurrection Act” ball rolling, all President Trump needs to do is issue a formal proclamation ordering all protesters and insurgents to disperse no matter that a number of Democrat governors and mayors...elected officials who see yet do nothing about their cities going up in flames...have denounced Trump's wanted implementation of said “Insurrection Act.” 

But in their denouncing of President Trump, and in their failing to stop the violence and mayhem, these Democrat governors and mayors might be the very reason why President Trump will rightfully get a second term in office, and it's along the same lines that afforded Richard M. Nixon the presidency back in 1968 during somewhat similar turbulent times. 

Nixon was the first to call himself the would be “law and order” president, and he did so while campaigning for president while our country was suffering through the Viet Nam War protests; the murders of both Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert F. Kennedy; and when the anti-war protesters and civil rights demonstrators tried to shut down the Democratic National Convention that nominated Hubert Humphrey for president. And with riots then, as they are now, continuing to break out across the U.S...the National Guard was called in to help restore “law and order” by now President Richard M. Nixon...the candidate who had promised that he would be the man to restore the “rule of law.” And Nixon won his election because of that promise...a promise he kept...and President Trump has made that very same promise, and we all know that what Donald J. Trump promises he will do, he does. 

The “Insurrection Act” needs to be imposed poste-haste and President Trump needs that second term in office to restore "law and order," otherwise what we now see going on in Democrat controlled cities will indeed be coming to a city and a suburb near you...Democrat or Republican controlled city not withstanding. That, dear reader, is simple closed.
