Donald Trump loyalists are now targeting the FBI with threats and violence. Truth Social users in particular have doxxed–sharing their sensitive, personal information online–the judge and FBI agent involved in the Mar-a-Lago search warrant. Tiffany Cross in for Joy Reid and our panel bring you their expert analysis of these developments on The ReidOut on MSNBC.
I got a feeling Truth Social might be a way scarier, more powerful thing because it’s a private club of the most extreme, listening to chats from the most extreme vandal in American politics, herr trump and man out to destroy our government as we know it.
Democratic voters need to learn it don’t pay to under estimate these hateful ruthless clowns. You gotta rise up, wake and shout, explain to them we all belong here and we got way more serious stuff to deal with. If we aren’t changing minds we are losing.
Oh regarding that Devin Nunes:
A judge in a U.S. District Court in Florida, where TMTG operates, ruled Monday that the company must offer up the information surrounding Nunes’ employment for the magazine company. The order to release documents surrounding the California Republican’s hiring at the Trump Technology and Media Group, TMTG, is one of several legal setbacks Nunes has suffered since leaving political office.
I considered that and that does not automatically follow. We have had many occasions where martial law was temporarily invoked.
Martial law in the United States
Throughout history, martial law has been imposed at least 68 times in limited, usually local areas of the United States. Martial law was declared for these reasons: Twice for war or invasion, seven times for domestic war or insurrection, eleven times for riot or civil unrest, 29 times for labor dispute, four times for natural disaster and fifteen times for other reasons.[]
Natural disasters, a potential threat of sabotage or nuclear. Anytime when there is a state of chaos that falls outside the purview of local police, the State or the Fed can call up the military to maintain order on a temporary basis.
The problem occurs when Martial Law becomes a permanent state, as in the book 1984, when the country is in an imaginary permanent state of war and under autocratic Martial law.
Yes, because under Trump martial law would be permanent and Trump would be dictator for life , just like Putin. I just told you that Russia is under martial law and any protester gets arrested and jailed.
I was suggesting martial law, not for peaceful protesting, but when people start violence , such as attacking the Nation’s Capitol when it is in session and people start dying…difference.
Do you actually read what other people write, other than rumors and innuendos?
When order has been restored and the local authorities can manage the situation.
In a democracy, it is never ONE person who declares Martial law or lifts it.
In a democracy, all major decisions are made by consensus of the people’s representatives. That’s the difference between democracy and autocracy or theocracy or dictatorship.
THAT’S WHY IT IS ONLY INVOKED IN TIMES OF CRISIS WHEN THE ORDERLY FUNCTION OF THE DEMOCRACY IS COMPROMISED!
Martial law can be in the form of military assistance to the civilian government in times of natural disaster or insurrection.
Martial law is the temporary substitution of military authority for civilian government in an emergency. In the United States, government officials have invoked martial law during war, labor disputes, natural disasters, and in times of civil unrest.
While lacking authority to unilaterally declare martial law, under the Insurrection Act the President has limited authority to deploy troops to suppress a domestic rebellion and enforce federal law. (10 U.S.C. §§ 251 to 253 (2020).) But federal troops deployed pursuant to the Insurrection Act are a supplement to civilian government, not a replacement. President John F. Kennedy invoked the Insurrection Act in 1962 and 1963 to send federal troops to Mississippi and Alabama to enforce civil rights laws. What Happens During Martial Law? | CriminalDefenseLawyer.com
I don’t think martial law should never happen, but I do think we need gun control and the Proud Boys, as well as other such groups who were involved in 1/6 be arrested and sent to prison. I also think such groups should not only be on the extremist lists, but also made illegal.
