President Trump is using the Patriot Act and NDAA to go after terrorist groups Antifa and BLM.
PRESIDENT TRUMP AND PATRIOT ACT
It should come as no surprise to Socialist Left mayors, city officials, or governors that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other Federal agencies are now being used to break up protests and riots. After months of civil unrest across the country, many rioters are destroying businesses, monuments, and attacking people, sometimes resulting in death. President Trump warned that he would intervene if local and state officials continued to do nothing to stop it.
It became apparent he kept is his promise when troops in unmarked vehicles began snatching protesters off the street in Portland and began operations to disperse them in the street by advancing on them using teargas and rubber bullets.
Both protesters and Oregon officials are outraged that the President would send in DHS troops to handle the situation, calling it unconstitutional and blatant abuse of power. The Oregon Justice Department has filed a lawsuit on multiple Federal agencies concerning their use of force against protesters.
In reality, President Trump has every legal right to use DHS and other Federal agencies against anti-US government protesters. This, because the President recently stated that he considers ANTIFA to be a domestic terrorist organization and since BLM is as involved in protests and riots as is ANTIFA they are also considered as enemies of the state and a terrorist organization.
THANK DEMOCRATS FOR NDAA
Since the Patriot Act went into effect shortly after 9-11 and Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law in 2012, the POTUS has every right to use whatever means necessary at his disposal to combat terrorists that pose a threat to national security. This also means a president doesn’t have to follow the laws of the US constitution when fighting a direct threat to the nation. Since President Trump considers ANTIFA and BLM domestic terrorist organizations, he has free reign to act in destroying them.
Another aspect of this situation is the fact that all laws concerning arrests, time of detention, and treatment of those captured during detention are not subject to regular constitutional laws in place from a local level to the Federal level. This gives Federal agencies the right to arrest anyone they believe is involved in terrorism at any time as well as forgoing Miranda rights. It also permits them to indefinitely detain suspects and perform enhanced interrogation techniques on them while in custody. Under this protocol, any protester who is arrested could lawfully be sent to the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp.
ANTIFA AND BLM ARE DOMESTIC TERRORIST GROUPS
Since both, ANTIFA and BLM have stated that their main goal is the destruction of the United States of America for a Utopian Socialist society they are indeed terrorists, out to overthrow the US government. They can also be considered as international terrorist organizations since they have multiple splinter cells around the world.
