Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn promoted a petition Tuesday calling for President Donald Trump to immediately suspend the U.S. Constitution, declaration of martial law and order the military to oversee a national vote for the 2020 presidential election.
Published Tuesday by the Ohio-based non-profit group We The People Convention, said there was “no peaceful way left to preserve our Union” following President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory and urged Trump to exercise his “extraordinary authority” to avert a second civil war.
“Limited Martial Law is clearly a better option than Civil War!” a letter accompanying the petition states.
Flynn, to whom Trump granted Presidential pardon last Wednesday in connection with the former Army General’s December 2017 guilty plea for making false statements to the FBI, tweeted a link to the petition on Tuesday night.
“Freedom never kneels except for God,” Flynn tweeted.
The letter accompanying the petition said Trump must be prepared to act as former President Abraham Lincoln did at the onset of the Civil War in the early 1860s, including:
- Ordering “hundreds of Northern newspapers that spoke against him to be shut down and their owners and editors arrested.”
- Ordering the arrest of an Ohio congressman “for the crime of speaking out against him.”
- Signing an arrest warrant for the then-Chief Justice of the Supreme Court who ruled that Lincoln had illegally suspended the Writ of Habeas Corpus.
- Ordering the arrest of thousands of Maryland citizens “for the crime of ‘suspected Southern sympathies,”‘ some of whom were held in military prisons without trial for years.
“Many will object to these actions, as they did in Lincoln’s day, but we assure you that We the People understand that no less action will suffice to prevent the loss of our Constitutional right to vote and preserve our Republic,” the letter stated.
The letter said Trump’s declaration of martial law and temporary suspension of the Constitution must be for the sole purpose of having the military oversee a national re-vote that “reflects the true will of the people.”
General McInerney calls on Trump to declare martial law and seize Dominion machines
Retired Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney evaluated the unusual facts that characterize the electoral process in the United States, and concluded that President Donald Trump should declare martial law.
For McInerney, the nation is a victim of a cyberwar promoted by the Democrats, China, Russia, and Iran and the president should invoke the 2018 executive order against foreign electoral interference, according to an interview published by Brighton on Dec. 1.
Likewise, for McInerney, it is not only a matter of electoral fraud stated by lawyer Rudy Giuliani, he goes even further and qualifies as treason the behavior evidenced by federal institutions and officials.
He also explains that the attack is a betrayal because he is trying to change the government.
Simultaneously, Trump should invoke the Insurrection Act, because of the actions of the leftist groups Black Lives Matter and Antifa.
In his analysis McInerney considers that the state of emergency enables the Trump administration to arrest all those involved in the alleged treason.
“Start arresting these people immediately, [under] this national emergency,” MacInerney said.
For McInerney, the risk to which the nation is exposed is of such magnitude that it is on the verge of irreversible change.
“This is the last free election we will have” if we don’t act decisively.
“This corruption cannot be accepted. It is treasonous, and we must have a thorough investigation of it,” stated McInerney.
