    It is not unusual for local government to request federal help. What has never happened before is where the president states he is the judge and will determine if he sends in the US military to take over law enforcement... when not requested.
    It has happened before. The civil war saw federal troops deployed to states without their request or consent. But the authority the president has to do it is in Title 10.

    OK, so I'm not alone in my beliefs.

    Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Wednesday he opposes using the U.S. military to quiet domestic unrest in a break with President Donald Trump who threatened to deploy federal troops to "dominate the streets."

    "I say this not only as secretary of defense, but also as a former soldier, and a former member of the National Guard: The option to use active-duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort and only in the most urgent and dire of situations. We are not in one of those situations now," Esper said. "I do not support invoking the Insurrection Act."

    Did Trump actually deploy troops?

    Or................................................ ...........................did he threaten to to get the mayors and governors off their asses?

    He's been known to use slight of hand.
    Democrats are doing more to destroy our country than the Russians could ever hope to do.

    Figure he will be the former Sec Def within a week.

    He met with Trump today and walked it back.

    DC comes under federal control.

    I believe I saw on one of the military news sites I follow that it is battalion of Military Police that is in DC.

    I'm not sure how many MP's are in a battalion, a battalion of infantry is about 800 men.
