President Donald Trump warned governors across the United States Monday evening to deploy the National Guard to control the ongoing rioting throughout the country that has escalated into violence over the past three days, and if they won’t he will dispatch the U.S. military in its stead.

The unprecedented action was announced during a short Rose Garden press conference at the White House, and Trump stated that “we are putting everybody on warning on 7 p.m. curfew.” He took no questions.

The announcement has led to speculation that Trump’s decision verges on Martial Law, where the “U.S. military is in control of normal civil functions or suspension of civil law by a government, especially in response to a temporary emergency where civil forces are overwhelmed, or in an occupied territory.”

White House officials could not be immediately reached and the White House switch board said there was no one in the communications department to immediately take the call.

“Where there is no law, there is no opportunity. Where there is no justice, there is no liberty. Where there is no safety, there is no future,” said Trump. “I take these actions today with firm resolve and with a true and passionate love for our country.”

He warned organizers the protests that they “will face sever criminal penalty” including arrest and those will stay in place until law and order is “fully restored.”

“We must never give in to anger or hatred,” said Trump. “I take these actions today with firm resolve.”

Ohio’s National Guard Takes Over Columbus 

National Guard troops have lined the streets of Columbus, Ohio since Saturday, and in Washington D.C. a military police battalion consisting of 200 to 250 military personnel is expected to be in the nation’s capital as soon as evening, according to reports.

In Columbus, some residents who spoke to SaraACarter.com by phone said “it looks like Marshall Law” as law enforcement officials prepare for the worst but hope for the best since the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer.

In Columbus Monday, most businesses remained closed amid concerns that the riots and protests would escalate into violence later tonight. The past three days protesters have gathered outside the Ohio Statehouse but the protests escalated into violence, with looting and robberies in the downtown Columbus and surrounding areas.

A resident shared a video with SaraACarter.com of downtown Columbus Monday, describing it as appearing more like a war zone than an American city, with armed National Guard troops lining the empty city and businesses boarded up to protect from the rioters.

 

National Guard Arrives In Washington D.C. 

In Washington D.C. several trucks of National Guard troops arrived near Lafayette Park across Pennsylvania Avenue. The area was filled with large groups of protesters the past three nights and some instigated fires leading to the destruction.

According to CNN two defense officials said the troops being deployed to Washington D.C. will be coming from Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar kicked off House Foreign Affairs Committee

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was voted off the House Foreign Affairs Committee Thursday. The action was expected, as Republican members of Congress had criticized Omar’s antisemetic and anti-American rhetoric.

After intense debating on the House floor, the resolution passed with a 218-211 vote. Democrats attempted to pull the race card, accusing Republican House members of racism for removing Omar from the committee.

Omar also accused House Republicans of racism, saying, “I am Muslim, I am an immigrant, and interestingly, from Africa…Is anyone surprised that I am being targeted? Is anyone surprised that I am somehow deemed unworthy to speak about American foreign policy, or that they see me as a powerful voice that needs to be silenced?”

“There is this idea that you are a suspect if you are an immigrant or if you are from certain parts of the world or certain skin tone or a muslim.” Omar said during the heated debate. A fiery Alexandria Ocasia Cortez also chimed in shouting, “This is an attack on women of color!”

Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, from New York, said she had personally witnessed Omar spew anti-American rhetoric. Malliotakis said, “I have been in that committee room where, the representative, equates Israel and the United States to Hamas and the Taliban. Absolutely unacceptable for a member of that committee.”

A four-page resolution was written for the justification of removing Omar from the house Foreign Affairs Committee. The resolution states that in 2019, Omar suggested that Jewish people were buying U.S. political support when she posted on Twitter, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”

Omar also commented on the September 11th attacks saying, “some people did something.” This type of comment is unacceptable for any representative who is sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, lawmakers said.

In the resolution it states that members of this committee should all be held to an “equal standard of conduct due to the international sensitivities and national security concerns under the jurisdiction of this committee.”
