Occam’s Razor says that the simplest answer is usually correct.
Elon Musk often jokes that the most “ironic” outcome is usually the most likely to occur.
And he might just be right on this one.
What is the one word the Crooked Media and Crooked Congress has tried to sink President Trump with since January 2021?
In that context, people afraid that President Trump will win again (big league) in 2024, have tried to use the “Insurrection Clause” of the 14th Amendment to bar him from the ballot:
- Prohibition Against Holding Office: Section 3 of the 14th Amendment states that no person shall 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.
Of course we know that’s completely bogus, but did you know there is actually a different law on the books from 1795 called The Insurrection Act?
Totally different thing, and the irony above all ironies is that President Trump may deploy it on Day 1 of his Presidency to clean up America:
The Insurrection Act of 1795 is a United States federal law that empowers the President to deploy U.S. military and federalized National Guard troops within the United States in specific circumstances, such as to suppress civil disorder, insurrection, and rebellion. The key aspects of this act include:
- Authorization for Use: The Act allows the President to use the armed forces to address an insurrection in any state which requests it, or in situations where it’s necessary to enforce federal law.
- Conditions for Deployment: Before deploying troops, the President must first issue a proclamation ordering the insurgents to disperse within a limited time. If the situation does not resolve after this proclamation, the President can then use military force.
- Historical Context: Enacted in 1795, the law was a response to the Whiskey Rebellion, a 1794 uprising against federal tax collections in western Pennsylvania.
- Subsequent Amendments: The Act has been amended several times, most notably by the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which limits the use of military personnel under federal command for law enforcement purposes within the United States.
- Modern Usage: The Insurrection Act has been invoked on several occasions throughout history, including during the Los Angeles riots in 1992 and in response to Hurricane Hugo in 1989.
America has become a third world country…
