Folks, this is a serious post. I hate writing serious posts, but the times demand it. I, as an American citizen, am hereby calling on President Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act, the 14th Amendment and his Executive Order of September, 2018. We are at the point where all apply and, frankly, they appear to be the only legal means left by which to save this great nation. What’s more, as the President, you have a sworn duty to invoke them. So, I am asking that you do so, today, and here is the clear case for invoking them:
First, we start with the language of the U.S. Constitution, acknowledging that it was written in 1787 and — unless otherwise amended — was intended to be understood according to the language of the times. I start by cementing that this is, in fact, the way the Constitution was and is still intended to be understood:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence. [emphasis added]
The language at the time defined ‘republican‘ thusly (from the Webster’s 1828 Dictionary):
As we can see, a ‘republic‘ is a ‘commonwealth,’ which was defined at the time thusly:
As we can see, a ‘commonwealth’ is a group of people living under a compact (i.e. the social compact) or tacit (implied) agreement which lists and defines the laws by which those people agree to live. This nation is a republic because it has agreed to live by a compact known as the U.S. Conatitution. Therefore, we are bound by it, as well as by those laws properly passed under and which conform to its provisions.
Now we move the the following section of the U.S. Constitution:
“… To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;…” [emphasis added]
The Constitution understands the term, ‘insurrection,’ to mean:
I submit that it has been repeatedly demonstrated, both in matter of fact and in matter of action and failure to act, that the several States, known as ‘swing States,’ have refused to properly conduct their duties to administer and uphold the law, provide for justice and to protect and preserve the Constitution. Furthermore, I submit that it has been clearly demonstrated, again by fact and by action or failure to act, that the governments of these ‘swing States’ have denied a part of their citizenry the protections guaranteed under their State and the Federal Constitutions by failing to provide justice and by treating them differently than they treated those citizens in the contested voting precincts. In short, the ‘swing States’ have committed the exact same breach of Constitutionally provided insurances as the State of Florida did in the 2000, Bush v Gore election. Furthermore, I submit that this then places these ‘swing States’ in the clear category of open insurrection (and the case can also be made that they are in an act of rebellion as well as sedition).
Since we now have a case of open insurrection — per the Constitutional definition of ‘insurrection’ — — in at least six (6) States; and because the Supreme Court has repeatedly refused to exercise its Constitutionally mandated duty to hear complaints on behalf of the citizens of these ‘swing States,’ nor the complaints of the several States claiming injury as a result of this insurrection, I submit that the only remedy left is to invoke the Insurrection Act.
“…The original Insurrection Act required the President to seek approval from state legislatures or governors before deploying soldiers, except in cases where:
A localized breakdown of authority has made the enforcement of federal laws “impracticable”; or any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy “hinders the execution of the laws of that State … that any part or class of its people is deprived of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law.” Recent revisions to the Insurrection Act have added new criteria that can trigger unilateral Presidential troop deployments, including:
“… natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition in any State or possession of the United States …” that results in a breakdown of local law and order….”
The above summary of the changes made to the Insurrection Act in 2005 clearly show that Congress has granted the President executive power to invoke the insurrection act in case of a break down in a States ability to enforce the laws — as in the case of an insurrection. I therefore submit that the factual state of insurrection in the ‘swing States’ meets the clear and plain meaning of the language of both the U.S. Constitution and the Insurrection Act, and that President Trump has not only the authority, but also a Constitutional duty to invoke said act and declare limited martial law in the ‘swing States’ until such time as a proper, republican form of government can be restored.
Furthermore, I call on President Trump to initiate military tribunals against any and all persons and/or organizations or fictional entities found to have participated in, supported either financially or in any material way, or otherwise comforted these acts of insurrection. And that the provisions of section three (3) of the Fourteenth (14th) Amendment be invoked against any and every person convicted by these tribunals. Specifically, the following:
3. No Person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability. [emphasis added]
This would result in such persons convicted under military tribunal being immediately and permanently banned from holding any public office.
Finally, I also call on President Trump to invoke the authority granted to him by the Executive Order he signed in September, 2018 (which strengthened two previous executive orders signed by Obama). Under this EO, any and all persons, organizations and/or entities found to have participated in or attempted to alter the result of the 2020 Presidential election in connection to a foreign State or power will immediately have their assets frozen and be subject to whatever prosecutions the President deems appropriate. Personally, I would file treason charges and prosecute them in military tribunals since such an act would constitute and act of war upon the United States.
I submit to any and all who read this that any action less than the one I just described will result in the surrender of the United States to agents of a foreign power (namely China) in the person of Joe Biden and his VP, Kamala Harris. This would effectively render the U.S. Constitution null and void, placing the States in either a State of enemy occupation by a proxy government of the Communist Chinese, or in a state of war with those States which chose to surrender to or align with this proxy government.
I am not a lone in my opinion on the law in this case:
