He needs to use the insurrection act and restore order

StarPlatinum123 5 points ago +5 / -0

I'm sure he's working on something since he's been kind of quiet on Twitter. Hopefully we hear from him tommorow.

You're just upset, its okay. Take a break from the internet if you can't handle it.

I'm with trump 100%of the time. Also wondering what the delay is. You're right, it's getting awfully close to being his fault because he is not acting forcefully enough.

He doesnt want to call up the military. But it needs to happen.

He's been lagging. Should have invoked the Insurrection Act on the first night.

The thing is.

To get a majority you need some of those without brains to break free of the mind-lock.

The second he "Just jumps in" the "story" will shift 180 in a flash that will boggle "everyone with a brain" all the way to "We're suffering under Hitler".

Trump isnt breaking any laws to please you. get out and enjoy your blue cities burning.

Yes, you are being too harsh. Keep up the calls for Trump to clamp down in every way possible.

Keep in mind, that not all avenues are possible or open without consequences. We are in this to win for America in the long run, and part of all this may be to get President Trump to take actions that turn middle of the road voters against him.

Remember that the purpose behind these riots has nothing to do with one person's death. It has everything to do with trying to keep POTUS from being reelected. EVERYTHING.

Why do you think the mayors of these cities aren't and weren't clamping down on the 'protesters' from the very beginning? Why did the Minnesomalia mayor let the police precinct fall? All of these DNC elected officials have aides or other third parties sending messages back and forth (so it won't show on their phones if investigated later) about how to keep this rioting going.

Trump will escalate step by step.

None of these people are voting Trump. None of the black people are voting Trump. Delaying doesn't get him any more votes.

The looters and people supporting him aren't. There's still a large number (10-15 million? Not sure how many) of voters that aren't completely sold on either party and don't pay enough attention to really know. Aside from ballot harvesting, these are the key to the presidential election.

If those people see the President making justified decisions, they will approve. The violence of the rioting and looting is redpilling them right now. As President Trump takes steps that even they can recognize are necessary, he will convert them in a way the democrats can't change later on.

The left desperately wants another Kent State to pin on President Trump.

He isnt the one that does it. He might eventually, but he always tries to let the established and lawful process run its course first.

The insurrection act is lawful. We have it for a reason

Dept of State is who you should be mad at first.

The insurrection act isnt what one would use to declare a group domestic terrorists.

Dont get me wrong, I agree they are; but with piglosi sipping her vodka just waiting for more peach mints everything needs to go through the process. As slow as shitty as that is.

Have a downvote for not knowing what the Insurrection Act is.

Don-O-Mite 1 point ago +1 / -0

Show me where in there the president declares a group a domestic terrorist; that has a specific legal meaning that didnt exist back then.

Insurrection Act, 1807 [I]n all cases of insurrection, or obstruction to the laws, either of the United States, or of any individual state or territory, where it is lawful for the President of the United States to call forth the militia for the purpose of suppressing such insurrection, or of causing the laws to be duly executed, it shall be lawful for him to employ, for the same purposes, such part of the land or naval force of the United States, as shall be judged necessary, having first observed all the pre-requisites of the law in that respect. Insurrection Act of 1807, ch. 39, 2 Stat. 443, 443

The law you just cited, clearly allows him to make such a decision unilaterally. It has nothing to do with declaring anyone a domestic terrorist. It's right there in the text you pasted, he can call up the military.
