Then most recently we were shown the portrayed inauguration of Joe Biden as president. With major media insisting it is so, most observers including many Trump supporters assume (or fear) the Biden presidency is permanent and irreversible. Not so.
The Insurrection Act Is Invoked
The proper place to begin understanding where the nation and the presidency stands now is the Insurrection Act of 1807. That early statute authorized the president to call upon land and naval forces to defend against and to defeat any attempt to take control of federal, state or local government by unlawful means. In mid-2018, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to detect, protect against and prevent any attempt to subvert free and fair elections on November 3, 2020.
Provisions of the order included advance assignment of duties by intelligence agencies to investigate and protect against any foreign interference in the elections. The order included specified time schedule for precautions and surveillance to be in place, for investigations and reporting by federal intelligence agencies of any instances of unlawful conduct to the Director of National Intelligence. The DNI was directed to compile his summary report of findings and deliver it to the president.
Though delayed from the original schedule set by President Trump, the DNI report to the president determined that numerous unlawful actions – including interference and collusion by foreign governments in concert with American citizens – did, in fact, occur. In summary, the president was officially notified that identified foreign governments colluded with American actors to subvert and compromise the federal elections of November 3.
Based upon the DNI report and related intelligence, President Trump invoked the Insurrection Act placing authority and responsibility upon U. S. military commands to proceed with their statutory duties to defeat the insurrection and preserve constitutional government. Foreign governments reported to be involved with American nationals included United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Vatican and China.
This is the context within which a reported 25,000 National Guard troops were called to duty and deployed at stations within Washington, D.C., during the days leading to and including the widely broadcast swearing in of Joe Biden as president on January 20. The military deployment was ordered by the Pentagon, not by Congress, the Senate or the president.
This is the factual context within which armed military forces took up positions around the U. S. Capitol and the White House. The Pentagon is reported to have a corps of 800 high-ranking officers focused upon defeating the insurrection involving collusion with foreign governments described above. Those officers are taking the precautions necessary to protect the nation, preserve and defend the Constitution, and defeat the insurrection.
The Plan and The Delay
A source believed to be reliable ( at 5:00 et seq.) says Pentagon officials were prepared to arrest Joe Biden and numerous others on January 20 at the time of the scheduled inauguration, but were deterred from doing so by an undisclosed consideration (perhaps threatened use of a weapon of mass destruction).
Military officials reportedly sought guidance from President Trump regarding the threat and ultimately determined to defer arrests until the threat is fully debunked. Arrests have been deferred until the threat is dealt with, which may be within a matter of days, weeks or as long as about two months.
If these described circumstances of January 20 are true, almost certainly Biden will be treated by law as never having become president. Indeed, he is likely to be treated as one who has conspired and acted to seize the presidency by treasonous means.
Biden is reported already to have been denied access to classified information requested from the Pentagon, and has been instructed not to come to the Pentagon or to send his staff there. These reports, if accurate, indicate the military command has concluded that Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election due to a criminal insurrection as proven by convincing evidence.
If this is indeed the case, Biden’s orders and actions in the White House are null, void and additional criminal acts. While military officials complete their work in defeating the reported insurrection, President Donald Trump remains on the sidelines, to be consulted as military officials see fit.
