State Sen. Amanda Chase (R), a Republican candidate for governor in Virginia, called on President Trump to declare martial law as recommended by General Flynn.
Writing in a Facebook post early in the morning on Tuesday, Amanda Chase said Biden is “not my president and never will be.”
She supported Trump’s statement that Biden had “cheated to win” and said she and many other Americans will “never accept these results.”
“The American people aren’t fools. We know you cheated to win and we’ll never accept these results. Fair elections we can accept but cheating to win; never. It’s not over yet. So thankful President Trump has a backbone and refuses to concede. President Trump should declare martial law as recommended by General Flynn,” Amanda Chase wrote.
“Here in Virginia the Democrats legalized cheating at the ballot box to win- all under the guise of covid. The Virginia Democrat Majority repealed voter ID laws, eliminated witness signatures and allowed voters to drop off sacred ballots in unsecured ballot boxes across the state, destroying the integrity and chain of custody of our ballots. In many other states this would be illegal,” she added.
Chase says she’s working with Attorney Sidney Powell “to expose what I and others believe is extensive fraud here in Virginia.”
Chase and Del. Kirk Cox are seeking the GOP nomination for governor in Virginia to replace outgoing Gov. Ralph Northam (D-Va.), whose term expires in November.
Martial law is the imposition of direct military 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, according to Wikipedia.
In the United States martial law has been declared for a state or other locality under various circumstances including after a direct foreign attack.
On September 15, 1863, President Lincoln imposed Congressionally authorized martial law. The authorizing act allowed the President to suspend habeas corpus throughout the entire United States (which he had already done under his own authority on April 27, 1861). Lincoln imposed the suspension on “prisoners of war, spies, or aiders and abettors of the enemy,” as well as on other classes of people, such as draft dodgers. The President’s proclamation was challenged in Ex parte Milligan, 71 US 2 . The Supreme Court ruled that Lincoln’s imposition of martial law (by way of suspension of habeas corpus) was unconstitutional in areas where the local courts were still in session.
