A week after receiving his pardon from President Donald Trump , former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn promoted a call for the president to “temporarily suspend the Constitution” and put the country under martial law.
On Tuesday, weeks after the election Trump lost, Flynn shared a press release from the right-wing We the People Convention imploring Trump to implement martial law. The statement drew a connection to what Abraham Lincoln did with his presidential authority during the Civil War.
“Then, as now, a President with courage and determination was needed to preserve the Union,” the statement says. “Today, the current threat to our United States by the international and domestic socialist/communist left is much more serious than anything Lincoln or our nation has faced in its history – including the civil war.”
The statement goes on to rail against Antifa, Black Lives Matter, “socialists,” the “corrupt media,” and Big Tech, blaming them all for an “attempted stealing” of the election.
There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud that would prove a stolen election, and much of the evidence collected by Trump’s legal team has been thrown out of court.
The statement culminates in a call for Trump to engage in “a limited form of martial law” before the country supposedly plunges into corruption and a new civil war.
When the legislators, courts and/or Congress fail to do their duty under the 12th Amendment, you must be ready Mr. President to immediately declare a limited form of Martial Law, and temporarily suspend the Constitution and civilian control of these federal elections, for the sole purpose of having the military oversee a national re-vote….You must also act, like Lincoln did, to silence the destructive media’s one-sided propaganda designed and proven to influence the election outcome, and end the unlawful censorship of Big Tech, to restore the confidence of the American People in our electoral process or we cannot continue as a nation. Failure to do so could result in massive violence and destruction on a level not seen since the Civil War. Limited Martial Law is clearly a better option than Civil War!
Flynn’s tweet comes shortly after Sidney Powell , the former Flynn and Trump campaign lawyer, amplified a call for Trump to “suspend” the election and “set up military tribunals” to launch an investigation into it.
We are already at war. We are also already under house arrest so there is no change. Might as well just make it official at this point.
Martial law certainly is one of the options.
But it should be the last resort in order to avoid massive, massive uprising by the terrorists (Antifa, BLM, etc).
Flynn knows it and is letting the American public know that “Biden Presidency” is hopelessly unrealistic.
Flynn’s statement is the right thing to do for the country. Unfortunately, I don’t see it happening.
We have been at war for the last 12 years with the regressive left.
They seek control at any price as we saw with their attempts to remove Trumo from office.
It is a very modest assessment.
America was taken over by the regressive left during the FDR Presidency.
Two Presidents who fought this element were shot and removed from the post. JFK and Nixon, that is.
The minor attempts prior to the Obama years was tolerable, today it has accelerated to massive proportions.
Just curious, who care what a person calls for, michael is a person without influence and represents zero decision making.
Anything to continue the game of hate.
No it’s not, the military WILL NOT participate in any such thing, unless Trumpers start shit with armed insurrection and then it won’t go well for THEM…
That would be correct…
And here I thought Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman thst shot JFK.
That is true as recent actions by Governors and mayors violate Americans civil liberties with recent lockdown mandates the table is being set while approaching Christmas and New Years.
I bet Tojoe Biden can’t wait to declare Martial Law at 1201 am 1/21/21.
He was killed, before he had a chance to speak, by Jack Rubinstein.
Why was JFK killed? He vehemently opposed Israel’s nuke bombs.
Joo Biden is an agent of America’s enemy.
Americans can’t wait for do nothing politicians who are systematically taking away our freedoms either! Once they succeed those freedoms are very hard to get back. We are going to have to fight for it if we want them restored! Either way, this doesn’t end on good terms until a definite resolution is sought.
“We The People” have to ultimately decide!
The media needs to be censored as their bias has affected this elections well as others in the last 2 decades.
The GOP Senate just passed a bill that would allow unlimited amounts of visas for foreigners to come take our jobs.
I am finished with them. Lying sacks or shit. Every last one of them is an anti-America First asshole.
Why would you say that…
Trump has long used H1B visas holding foreigners to staff his properties, never caring about providing those jobs to Americans…why is this just now bothering you…
It sounds like Michael Flynn is trying to get more charges levied against him. He’s trying to get a civil war started because he’s mad that he got caught breaking the law. This is another loser that should never get anywhere near government. I can’t wait for the Trump era to come to a screeching halt. It’s been an insufferable 4 years but thankfully we are back on the right track.
