Shocking details of the giant bill passed by both the US Senate and the US House of Representatives on Tuesday exposes how civil servants in DC view their host, the American Taxpayer, including one amendment that was attached to the spending bill that would limit the President’s Constitutional authority as Commander and Chief.

In a shocking power grab the power-drunk office dwellers hid in the 5,893-page bill a provision that says: “Nullifies the President’s use of the Insurrection Act.”

Posters on Twitter found the details and reported on them:

According to GovTrack.us:

H.Amdt. 833 (Escobar) to H.R. 6395: To require certifications be made to Congress when the President deploys active duty military within the United States during civil unrest by amending the Insurrection Act in Title 10, Chapter 13 of U.S. Code.

FLASHBACK TO JUNE 2020

NPR reported in June about Trump threatening the use of the Insurrection Act during the Summer’s riots:

“President Trump threatened Monday to take military action in American cities if the violent demonstrations that have been taking place in recent days aren’t stamped out.

“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,” Trump said in a short statement in the Rose Garden at the White House.”

To do that, the president would need to invoke what’s known as the Insurrection Act of 1807. The original text of the act, which has been amended several times since it was first passed, reads as follows:

An Act authorizing the employment of the land and naval forces of the United States, in cases of insurrections

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That in all cases of insurrection, or obstruction to the laws, either of the United States, or any individual state or territory, where it is lawful for the President of the United States to call forth the militia for tto suppress insurrection, or of causing the laws to be duly executed, it shall be lawful for him to employ, for the same purposes, such part of the land or naval force of the United States, as shall be judged necessary, having first observed all the pre-requisites of the law in that respect.

APPROVED, March 3, 1807.

In anticipation of a Presidential Veto of the bill, Lin Wood, an attorney who has a close relationship with Election Integrity activists around President Donald J. Trump posted:

“Any member of Congress who votes to override @realDonaldTrump veto is a traitor to the United States of America. Plus such an effort by Congress to limit the Chief Executive’s use of the Insurrection Act is unconstitutional. Patriots are you awake yet?”

Kyle Morris for Breitbart News posted that Trump was already talking about a Veto.
