Violence, destruction and mayhem taking place in urban centers across the country are undermining our democracy and destroying our way of life. Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis and other U.S. cities are undergoing unceasing violence by Black Lives Matter, Antifa and similarly ideologically abhorrent groups. What will it take to stop this unmitigated hate and destruction when the mayors and governors of these states and cities refuse to face what has been done to people’s property and lives? There is only one person who can put an end to this crisis of major proportions, and that is President Trump.

However, the deep-state actors running the Department of Defense do not want to use the military for the purposes of stamping out insurrection, as provided for under the Insurrection Act. I see no solution other than for Mr. Trump to override the recommendations of his top military officials and call out the Navy and the Army to quell the violence going on in our cities.
