"Martial Law"- that's where we are!

Defense Department is sending 21 active and reserve Military Jag Officers to be FEDERAL PROSECUTERS in border cases-

Use of the military to conduct civilian law enforcement is the very definition of Martial Law!

Senators urge Pentagon to rethink sending military lawyers to be immigration prosecutors

WASHINGTON — Calling it an “inappropriate application of military personnel,” three leading senators urged the secretary of defense to reconsider sending military attorneys to southern border states to help prosecute immigration cases.

“We are … deeply troubled,” wrote Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Joni Ernst, R-Ind., and Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., in a letter Thursday to Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis.

The letter came just hours after the Pentagon confirmed that it had approved sending 21 active-duty and reserve judge advocates to help the Justice Department with its growing backlog of cases created after the government adopted a policy to prosecute adults who cross the border illegally. The attorneys will stay in place for less than six months each, the Pentagon said.

1. Trump wants martial law

Then he can do to us what he's doing to these children, and give Congress the middle finger, which then he could cancel , rig any election he wants, then appoint avanke as our ruler and do away with elections altogether. Then play golf daily and rake in the money he's shaking others down for himself.

2. It's interesting that they know the attorneys will stay in place for six months each,

when they do NOT know how many cases will be heard, how long current policies will increase the case loads as they move forward, and how many of the victims of the policy can actually be found. I would not hesitate to say that there are many other issues as well. So...yes...it's just more bullshit.

3. If we had trumpian martial law, most social media would

be shut down. And I might add, all sensible people would be afraid of what groups their posting histories assigned them to.

4. And the judges, to the extent there were judges, would be military.

This is the prosecutors who are military.

It's like having a pea under your mattress.

6. They think they can not just get away with it

but thrive on approval because they're starting with persecution of non-citizens with the blessing of a significant minority of the electorate. Definitely a warning pea under all our mattresses.

5. A strongly worded letter should fix it

Congress needs to act on its own right now.

7. Nothing proclaims Martial Law like confining civilians at military bases and refusing due process...

...in the civilian realm.

NOT IN MY NAME, YOU EVIL BASTARDS!
