    I agree but the fact he would even threaten that shows what a piece of **** he is and what pieces of **** his supporters are for supporting him.

    Then why didn't you say that in your other post, to which I just replied?

    I gander a guess of little to none
    He has the power to do that but only if there is an insurrection to overthrow a State Government. That is not happening. It is possible that Congress or a State AG can file an injunction to stop him.

    States have the right to sit back and refuse to protect the rights of their citizens? I would love to see you try to make that argument...lol

    Okay so knock off the 'Navy' part. THE COAST GUARD and NATIONAL GUARD are the only two components of domestic security in the USA.


    Coast Guard: It operates under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security during peacetime, and can be transferred to the U.S. Department of the Navy by the U.S. President at any time

    Posse Comitatus Act

    Posse Comitatus Act - Wikipedia

    The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. ß 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.
