    Well, hang tight. It could be a bluff. Though some Govs may take Trump up on his offer (I pity their citizens), but it isn't a done deal that Trump will force the military on the ones that don't want it. Trump has been known to talk with bluster, then back down.

    Posse Comitatus Act - Wikipedia
    Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. 1385, original at 20 Stat. 152) signed on June 18, 1878, by President Rutherford B. Hayes. The purpose of the act in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807 is to limit the powers of the federal government in using federal military personnel to enforce domestic policies within the United States. It was passed as an amendment to an army appropriation bill following the end of Reconstruction and was updated in 1956 and 1981.

    The act specifically applies only to the United States Army and, as amended in 1956, the United States Air Force. Although the act does not explicitly mention the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps, the Department of the Navy has prescribed regulations that are generally construed to give the act force with respect to those services as well. The act does not prevent the Army National Guard or the Air National Guard under state authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within its home state or in an adjacent state if invited by that state's governor.

    Trump is in well over his head... some things he might do well, like the economy... but we can clearly see that during a crisis he is a moron. This is not even a major crisis like WWII or the Gulf War. Could you imagine this jackass being President during a war? I am making sure that I get my absentee vote in this time... he has got to go.

    He knows he is going to lose re-election, the economy is in the tank through at least this year, unemployment is through the roof, people are dieing due to a pandemic, and he has no clue what to do to save his fat arse. Well there is one thing he can do, become Dictator, we know how that usually ends for them.
    What will be interesting in the next few days is what the House and the Senate say along with the Governor's on this. America Will be watching, this will not work out for trump if he tries.

    Does Congress have the power to override Trump?
    Do you think Trump will go along with the bolded? No way!

    Yes they are. And I was laughing at your first statement.

    Here's what the Church's Bishop had to say about that:

    Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde:
    "The president just used Bible and one of the churches of my diocese without permission as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus and everything our churches stand for.

    I am outraged.


    The president did not pray ,or acknowledge the agony of people of color who wonder if people in power.

    We distance ourselves from the incendiary language of this president. We align ourselves with justice."

    What a hero.
    Have the Evangelicals noticed that soon after they made a godless, lying, lawless, womanizing conman their messiah, a plague showed up?

    Trump is not doing anything with the military... and even if he did I bet they don't respond like he thinks that they will... they are US Soldiers and are not going to be bullet spraying protesters.
