We all know the quote. Today, it hurts more when you consider what should have been done during the Black Lives Matter insurrection of 2020: the US Military should have put down the riots after the burning of the 3rd Precinct in Minneapolis, with the elected officials in the beleaguered city acquiescing their monopoly on violence to the mob.

It only got worse across the nation after this, with lawlessness leading to the toppling of statues and monuments, burning of buildings, loss of life, and massive property damage. Worse, all police became fearful of being accused of racism if they had a filmed encounter with a black suspect, leading to a massive homicide/nonfatal shooting increase nationwide.

With this, we remember the words of Whittier, “for all the sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these, ‘it might have been.”[Trump said he regrets not ‘immediately’ sending in the US military to quash nationwide unrest last summer, Business Insider, July 19, 2021];

Former President Donald Trump said he regretted not “immediately” deploying the military into US cities to quash unrest last summer.

“I think if I had it to do again, I would have brought in the military immediately,” Trump told the Washington Post reporters Carol D. Leonnig and Philip Rucker in a March interview, according to an excerpt from their new book, “I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year.”

After the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer in May 2020, calls for racial justice and condemnation of police brutality quickly turned into protests. While many were peaceful, others were not. Unrest in the aftermath of Floyd’s murder was seen in numerous cities across the country, from Portland, Oregon, to Washington, DC.

On June 1, 2020, Trump threatened to deploy US troops if states did not call up the National Guard to deal with the protests and, at times, rioting, violence, and destruction.

“If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” he said in the Rose Garden.

Trump’s remarks appeared to indicate that he intended to invoke the Insurrection Act, a rarely used power that allows the president via an executive order to deploy active-duty military troops domestically to address unrest and enforce the law. The measure is widely viewed as a last resort to impose order when a state’s forces are insufficient or the unrest threatens the government itself.

At one point, Trump tried to put Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley in charge of a military response to the protests, but Milley pushed back, which set off a profanity-filled shouting match in the Situation Room, according to the Wall Street Journal reporter Michael C. Bender’s new book, “Frankly, We Did Win This Election.”

Trump denied such an incident took place, telling Axios it was “fake news.”

Bender also writes that Trump wanted to use the military to “beat the f— out” of protesters, according to CNN, but such aggressive rhetoric was met with resistance by other officials, including Milley.

Amid concerns that Trump planned to invoke the Insurrection Act of 1807, Mark Esper, then the secretary of defense, publicly announced that he did not support such a move.

ORDER IT NOW

“The option to use active-duty forces in a law-enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort and only in the most urgent and dire of situations,” Esper said at a Pentagon press briefing. “We are not in one of those situations now. I do not support invoking the Insurrection Act.”

Esper said the National Guard was better-suited for that mission. Nation Guard troops, in contrast with the active-duty military, train to quell civil unrest with as little force as necessary and typically are residents of the states and regions where they serve.

Truly, it might have been.

  1. I regret that he didn’t fire everyone from Day One.

  2. Augustus says:

    The inaction was, I believe, based on a desire not to harm the black vote totals. What amazed me, at the time, was that the disloyal Miley and Esper were not fired for their public statements. Their dismissals should have been immediate. Trump had poor advisers who knew nothing of governance.

  3. Bite Moi says:

    The response should have been swift .Birdshot to show resolve. Buckshot to solve the problem.

    I imagine there are many things Trump wishes he’d done in hindsight. Frankly, the joggers were let off the leash in the mid 60’s along with the lack of resolve to put them down as they should have been. Other than 1992’s “can’t we all get along” LA monkeyshines, the subsequent few decades were relatively riotless. Unfortunately, negros are basically one trick ponies and the riot card has been out in full force since fat mike’s “hands up don’t shoot” show – as well as the the lack of stones to deal with these cretins. Maybe that’s the plan.

  6. Call me old fashioned, but a president is not allowed to send in troops without first receiving a formal request from a governor (which he then cannot refuse). Article 4 §4.

    Indeed, to do otherwise would truly be an impeachable offense, one even rising to the level of treason.

  7. eah says:

    Foolishness.

    Every state has National Guard troops who are also under command of that state’s governor; so any governor of an affected state could have, at any time, ordered the NG to intervene and suppress the violence.

    What Trump could and should have done often was remind voters in those states/cities of the above simple fact, and that he was ready, as president, to grant any reasonable request for additional assistance.

    Taking federal action against rioters, perhaps/probably against the wishes of both a governor and local politicians, would have been a no-win for Trump.

    So Trump made the right decision (perhaps inadvertently) — what he failed to do was repeatedly remind people/voters in cities plagued by ongoing violence of who was responsible for allowing it to continue.

  8. UNIT472 says:

    We now know the military commanders were brown nosing Deep State traitors who would not have carried out such an order by Trump.

    If, by some miracle Trump, or his proxy, should regain the White House in 2024 the first order of business should be to purge the the general officers of the US military of everyone promoted to flag rank during the Obama administration and the Senior Executive Service of all Federal agencies.

    Making a Marine pilot with the rank of Major Chairman of the JCS and a locally elected state county sheriff the Director of the FBI might make the message clear but if not, a prohibition on senior government officials taking sinecures with private companies contracting with the Federal government would. The Gravy Train has ended for Deep State operatives.

    Now for a fascinating look how ‘diversity is not our strength’ from our closet animal relatives.

    I agree. We need less federal omnipotence, not more.

    Trump is probably posturing, though. He knows it would’ve been a bad move, but by portraying the riots as a missed opportunity to put down the fanatical left he can appeal to the emotions of this supporters. The last four elections have been wild, but 2024 promises to be the wildest of all.

  16. @Abolish_public_education

    Yes, you are correct. In fact, however much he regrets it now, Trump was punctiliously following the Constitution throughout 2020. And the Democrat governors of the (self-)afflicted states were careful not make any statement that could be construed as a request for Federal intervention. They wanted the riots.

    Indeed, to do otherwise would truly be an impeachable offense, one even rising to the level of treason.

    Had Trump intervened anyway, the Narrative would have immediately switched to that.

    ——

    “The option to use active-duty forces in a law-enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort and only in the most urgent and dire of situations,”

    Funny how quickly that went out the window as soon as some unarmed tourist-protestors showed up at the scene of the Democrat’s coup d’état.

    The Democrats do not hesitate to use the military against patriotic Americans, no matter what any Constitution says, so it’s not like anyone else really needs to worry about setting a bad precedent.

    but a president is not allowed to send in troops without first receiving a formal request from a governor

    I think not. How was Eisenhower able to send active duty troops into Little Rock in 1957 to enforce integration after Gov. Faubus called up the Arkansas NG to prevent it?

    This is simply a question of whose ox is being gored. If the army is called into the streets on behalf of the Negro and against whites, then nobody questions it. If the army is called out to defend whites and to defend private property against Negro riots, then the Left goes apeshit.

  22. How typical. Trump had some good instincts but always let Javanka and the rest of his nonsupporting advisers talk him out of taking effective action. He allowed himself to be convinced anything on those lines might have undercut his support (mostly a fantasy) among blacks, or Jews, or guilt-tripping whites.

    I don’t want a second round for Trump. He had his chance and blew it. No to a replay.

    Woulda, coulda, shoulda . . . as always. Trump was absolutely negligent in at least two regards: 1) in not getting the damn wall up on the southern border; and 2) in not moving more expeditiously during the riots of 2020. Even though some military commanders may have balked at his plans, they all serve at the pleasure of the president, correct? Why Trump, who is known for firing people, did not replace these military commanders for people more open to his visions is something that should haunt him for the rest of the days of his life.

  24. Firefinga says:

    It’s just that the so called “top brass” are deep staters blm/”lgtbq”-loving traitors and wouldn’t have followed his orders anyways. They defied Trump orders regarding oversea troop reductions, lied to him on several occasions etc.

  25. Trump thought he would benefit politically by doing nothing while hundreds of thousands of Americans were having their lives destroyed.

    He thought people would overwhelmingly vote for him to avoid it spreading to their areas and they did but he ran away and wouldn’t stand and fight for them and he has hung those who came to the Capitol building, on his say so in the days prior to the 6th January, out to dry.

    Trump is a failed human in every possible sense. MIGA really was his call to action when we look back honestly on his failure of a presidency.

    The timeline of chimping out and way this played out in the article is instructive. The warnings about the sudden approach by chimps and the loud vocalizations remind me of being around blacks.

    When white people are too loud for me it is easier to tell them to quiet down and get results due to cultural affinity.

  30. “After the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer” Ummmm NO! Stop with this lie but that will never happen. Every story always has to have this lie. This country is done. As for President Trump.If he did anything he would be attacked as Hitler on steroids.Even though he was anyway. No matter what he did or tried to do , it is quite obvious that EVERYONE around him were/are all traitors. He had no one that was trying to help him whatsoever. I remember when he said he wanted to send in troops to Chiraq. He should have as well. The fact that the city has the name Chiraq should give people a clue. Only blacks come up with their childish names so they can one up each other over who has the best nickname for the cities that they themselves turn into sheitholes. Why does anyone even think to even bother voting anymore. After President Trump,that’s it.It’s over. What,you think DeSanitis is going to be the magic Hispanic. Or some other Repub. Why bother. No matter what laws they try to pass to fix things or just uphold the hundreds of laws we already have,they will just be wiped out when the Dems jump right back in. Look at how they wiped out whatever President Trump tried to do. 4 yrs straight of constant made up lies and BS ,attacking him 24/7.How the F is anybody supposed to get anything done with that kind of lunacy.

  32. @Augustus

    Perhaps Trump’s inaction in the face of Antifa/BLM riots was in part due to not wanting to “harm the black vote totals,” but his inaction cost him an innumerable amount of the “silent majority” of White votes. That’s clear from the fact that his percentage of the White vote (especially among men) was less against Biden than it was against Hillary. Plus, as Antifa is majority white, and Antifa is larger than BLM, Trump would have been cracking more white skulls than black ones.

    Plus, it is unthinkable that General Eisenhower would have put up with such outright defiance in his chain of command, as done by Esper and Milley, when he was POTUS. They would have been bounced in a New York minute.

    And Truman fired beloved (by the public) WWII Pacific war hero MacArthur when the general had overstepped his authority and defied direct orders in the Korean conflict. That firing was unpopular but Truman took the heat. As he famously said “if you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen.”

    Well, when push came to shove, Trump couldn’t stand the heat. Now he is no longer in the kitchen. I have no sympathy for his regrets.

    “(Army News Service, Sept. 17, 2007) – Fifty years ago, the 101st Airborne Division made history as troops deployed to Little Rock, Ark., to escort nine black high school students into the all-white Central High School amid racial protests”

    Everything is all Negro these days. Meanwhile Chicago is on track for 800 plus homicides and I would guess that the Negro is responsible for 90%. Meanwhile White people keep moving farther and farther away while still worshiping the Negro.

  36. The correct course of action was to point out that it is the responsibility of the governors to use the national guard to suppress any riots.

    Minnesota liberals are major reality deniers and needed to learn the hard way that their liberal politicians will let their neighborhoods and businesses burn if Blacks are aggrieved.

    Exit polls showed that Trump would have won if he had done slightly better with Covid. He didn’t need to be some stellar hero, just more support to the states and less downplaying. A lot of his responses were childish and imprudent.

    BLM really didn’t change the polls. Swing states matter and they were more concerned with Covid and health care.

    I’m going to call you flat out wrong. Say it with me: LEG-IS-LA-TURE. And as someone else pointed out, ask Eisenhower his thoughts on this matter.

  40. Some will say Trump’s words are a bitter response to the way his supporters are being treated right now for January 6th – hundreds charged and imprisoned to send a warning to America: “We’re the regime and we have unfettered coercive power. The Constitution be damned”.

    The wording from prosecutors and judges in the January 6th case is instructive: if we don’t like your politics, if you state publicly you don’t believe in the results of the election, if you show defiance to the government, we will label you an enemy of the state and deny you fair access to a defense.

    We’ll accuse you of “being a flight risk” or a “risk to public safety” to deny bail and keep you isolated.

    The regime calls this “shock and awe” (of state power), so that dissidents will “stand down and not try anything”.

    Trump may want to comment less on what could have been in 2020, and more on how the protestors of January 6th need our support now. The summer of BLM is history. They got away with it. What’s more important is the illegitimate regime is lashing out at patriots right now, striking the first blows of what could become a cycle of reprisals.

    Anyone charged for January 6th should be promised they will be pardoned and financially compensated if Republicans take back control, and the entire ‘shock and awe’ witch hunt will be thoroughly investigated for wrong doing.

    Trump’s advisers like Javanka, black nationalist Jaron Smith, Brook Rollins and other libtarded types convinced Trump that the negro vote was his to lose so to tread lightly instead of doing the right thing which would have been calling up the national guard like George H.W. Bush did in 1992.

    Trump spent almost his entire four years courting black people while ignoring the concerns of the white people who put him in office. Sure, we got some tweets, tax cuts and better border security but everyone benefits from those things.

    Mark Milley is just a fat hypocrite, beltway liberal and third rate general. He refused to use the military against violent BLM and left wing protesters as they destroyed two billion dollars worth of property over several months but now seems willing and eager to use the military against right of center white Americans who, according to the clown Milley, are the “people we fought in WWII”.

    Biden had a 100% (or more!) turnout in districts where the norm is 67%, which indicates there was massive fraud.

    v If Trump could have ended the so-called ‘War on Terror’, he could have brought the troops home.#MAGA

    v If Trump could have ended the so-called ‘War on Terror’, it woould have obviated the need for laws like the USA PATRIOT Act, and calling average Americans domestic terrorists?

    v If Trump had contested the obvious ballot fraud, CIA involvement, in the 2018 mid-term elections, he could have thwarted the massive ballot fraud the occurred in the 2020 election (U.S. Color Revolution).

    v If Trump had not hired corrupted Attorney Generals (Sessions and Barr), we could have prosecuted Hillary Clinton, Obama, Biden, Brennan, FBI-Comey, the CIA (Soros NGOs) for their roles in Obama-gate, the serial coup d’etats that consumed the Trump Presidency.

    Thank you for taking that seriously enough to check it out. Yes, indeed, for all the talk one hears about posse comitatus supposedly forbidding the military from deploying in the U.S., the plain fact is that Eisenhower actually sent the 101st with bayonets fixed into a public high school and nobody regarded that as an act of armed oppression by the government.

    One can only imagine what the outcry would have been if a president had sent an active duty military unit to repel Mexicans at the border or shut down an abortion clinic.

    The fact is that the government has used the military to compel American whites to associate with Negroes ever since 1861. They have used it to kill hundreds of thousands of Southern whites, and used it to occupy territory just as the Red Army occupied East Germany after 1945.

    I laugh when people talk about their “Constitutional rights.” They don’t have any. Mao was right — power comes from the barrel of a gun, and the Federal government has known this ever since 1861.

    I was in the army in 1968 at Fort Hood. I can tell you from first hand observation that the army was training to control civilian riots. In fact, the US military was called to several places after King was assassinated in 1968, to control the rioting. As I recall, the army was not particularly brutal. In fact, the military is generally under quite good control.

    Trump got bad advice. He was told the President didn’t have the responsibility for state order; it was the governor. But, Trump didn’t realize it was all on his watch. The buck stopped there, and he blew it. If the leader doesn’t provide security, what use is he? He had the worst of both worlds: he blew and blustered, but Antifa and BLM called his bluff, and he didn’t act.

    “The Bolsheviks stole a presidential election. They are running a police state. If you think they are going to allow themselves to be voted out……”

    I’m with you on that one. The only way they’d let the Republicans back in is if it was led by an avowed Zionist who’s in their pocket.

  57. Trump fucked up on a LONG list….the wall….the riots….and censorship.

    Failing to act on the censorship of conservatives might have been the biggest mistake of all, because without having accurate information people cannot be expected to make intelligent decisions.

    I mean, my God….I saw where Biden is now claiming that it was the GOP that demanded the defunding of the police! The lies are stunning, and they blithely speak lies daily without any concern that they will be called out. And with massive censorship, most of the voices that would take issue with the lies have been canceled.

    I don’t think that people fully understand what has happened. Bolsheviks have taken the reigns of power. You can forget about the truth. You can forget about the rule of law. This is a hostile elite that wants you dead. It’s not something you can vote your way out of.

    The GOP is USELESS. Rand Paul seems to be the only one with any balls.

    Day one Trump should have fired ALL of the people who were appointed by Obama in every sector of government.

    I’m trying to think of even one hire that was good. Trump should have hired Kris Kobach but didn’t.
    The long list of total shitheads in his administration makes my head spin.

    I voted for Trump and at one time I thought he was somewhat sincere. But learning more about him and looking at all of his mistakes I have to think that like everyone else in the GOP, Trump was making promises he had no intention of keeping.

    To think that we are in such a lousy position that people are missing Trump….when the only good thing you can say about him was that he wasn’t openly anti-white like the Biden regime.

    Right out of the gate Trump’s DOJ roasted those poor patriots at C’ville, even if he did make the “gaffe” about good people on both sides. Tell that to James Fields who sits in prison for 400 years for trying to get away from Antifa crazies.

    And the bookend is Trump basically turning his back on the old folks who went to his rally on Jan.6th.
    only to wind up in jail.

    It’s impossible to assess how much he could have done….but it is clear that he did nothing for white people….and a slew of bad things happened on his watch.

    And the crazy pardons he gave at the end symbolize all that was wrong with his administration….pandering to black thugs and jewish criminals who didn’t like him anyway.

    That a bunch of politically appointed, federal lawyer-justices issue ridiculous rulings on state matters, and a president issues unconstitutional decrees to “enforce” them, doesn’t make the process legal.

    You’re nitpicking about process, dumbo. Obviously, the decision is a legislature’s to make.

    I presume that should it vote in favor, the clerk of the assembly would deliver the resolution to the governor’s desk, who would then contact the president forthwith.

    In case you were unaware, not all legislatures are in-session 24x7x365. Some are only open in odd years. Should the legislative session be adjourned, the governor could do so unilaterally.

    The military can be used to forcibly integrate high schools and Southern colleges at gun point in the 1950’s and 1960’s but somehow can’t be used to quell violent riots.

    Forcing whites and blacks together is a good and righteous cause but protecting life and property during riots is not.

    I have always been of the opinion that the role of the military is to prevent invasion of foreigners into USA lands and not to go to strange lands and recreate those countries into an image and likeness of us.

    There is Ft Hood in TX and Ft Bliss near Mexico. Why not deploy them to do their exercises on the borders. It would be easy to create army bases in New Mexico and Arizona. California I believe already has a Marine or Army base.

    But I guess the globalists are very powerful and therefor I see no changes in those border areas.

    I voted for trump the first time (and last time) in 2016. Figured he was a last resort. I knew he would bow to his jooish masters, yet he might at least do away with some of the riff raff running the country. Turned out he was an empty suit con man. He released any joo in prison as well as black criminals. He might have been the worst thing to happen to YT. A complete loss of hope in any lawful solution.

    The joo depersons anyone it sees as dangerous and keeps the citizens at each other’s throats. No other political solution will rise. The (((system))) will see to it. (((They))) have really built up this black golem and are intent on destroying this country.

    Just like Ann, I realized Trump was a pussy who liked the adulation and liked to talk tough but hated to hear people who didn’t worship him. His promises meant nothing if he was going to be called names.

    When did Trump force any issue? Why didn’t he tell Ryan exactly what he wanted in a bill and let the American people know that without those any bill was DOA. He only had a few simple promises to keep, money for the wall and end the carried interest deduction (which could have paid for it). If he had ended DACA on day one Congress would have had to act, instead they just waited him out.

    He was always willing to have a rally where he could be worshipped but he never had any press conferences where he let everybody know what had to happen to get his approval and fight for it such as ending birthright citizenship or ending our wars in the ME.

    He was the President and he let his daughter and her eunuch tell him what to do.

    Why didn’t he have a press conference telling everybody in the country he wanted to end birthright citizenship and use the power of the federal government’s propaganda ministries to make the case for it every day. Then let Congress know that a bill has to be on his desk, yesterday. He let Ryan and McConnell lie and manipulate him. Probably because he really didn’t want to do these things.
