Washington State Gov. Jay Islee Says Trump “Fomenting Domestic Rebellion’ – ‘Unhinged and Dangerous’

“His unhinged rantings and calls for people to ‘liberate’ states could also lead to violence. We’ve seen it before,” Inslee added. “The president is fomenting domestic rebellion and spreading lies – even while his own administration says the virus is real, it is deadly and we have a long way to go before restrictions can be lifted.”

Daily Beast: Washington state’s Democratic governor Jay Inslee issued a statement Friday accusing President Donald Trump of encouraging “illegal and dangerous acts” and “fomenting domestic rebellion” for appearing to endorse people taking to the streets to protest stay-at-home orders in their states.

Inslee also accused the president of “spreading lies even while his own administration says the virus is real and is deadly, and that we have a long way to go before restrictions can be lifted.” Inslee added that the president’s “irresponsible statements” undermined the work of his own coronavirus task force and could lead to deaths. Trump posted several tweets on Friday to “liberate” states, including Minnesota, Michigan and Virginia.

  1. What ever the nature of this virus is, the numbers are not even close to their computer generated scenario. So, why continue these draconian LOCKSTEP measures. The banks got their bailout, the money is already divvied up, now let the rest of us go on about our business. What are we going to do? Lock down the nation every time our corrupt media, at the behest of certain groups and billionaire individuals, yell fire. I don’t think so. Are we asking too much? Not really. Whose life is so precious as to re-enact this again? Certainly not the Libyans, Syrians, Iraqis, Yemenis, Congolese, Rouhingas, Palestinians, etc. the dying there continues. Surely if their lives are as important, shouldn’t we all self quarantine until the interested parties stop bombing and killing them? Just saying. Nothing adds up. What’s next Genocide?

    • If you can’t stay inside for a month or two in order to stop the spread of this virus then you’re a pretty selfish, worthless person to be perfectly honest. Short of a vaccine, no other measure can possibly have remotely as positive an effect on the virus situation as maintaining the lockdown until the point where it is no longer necessary.

      Screw all this stupid talk of it being some kind of nefarious plot, the lockdown is eminently sensible and absolutely essential if we are to win this virus war with a minimum of casualties, that is why it is being enforced all over the globe. If Trump had instituted lockdown weeks earlier, it would have saved tens of thousands of lives.

  2. “Levying war against the United States” is Article III’s first definition of Treason. Inciting armed insurrection comes awfully close. Watch out, Mr. President. You’re playing with fire.”
    Laurence Tribe – Harvard Law professor

    • “if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest, that cannot be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment.”
      Alan Dershowitz-Harvard Law professor

      That whole Harvard Law cachet thing has become jaded.

  3. In my estimation, Democrat governors in CV-19 hotspots, such as Inslee in Washington, Newsom in California, and Cuomo in New York, have done pretty good jobs, respectively in their states, dealing with this crisis.

  4. USMCJ Article 116- Any service member of the United States Armed Forces who acts alone or with others to cause a riot or a breach of the peace within a public community will face charges under Article 116 of the UCMJ. Inciting riots and creating public disturbances could inflict catastrophic damage upon a service member’s military career and civilian future. For instance:
    Should you be convicted of inciting a riot, you will face up to 10 years in prison and the loss of ALL military benefits.
    Even a lesser charge of breaching the peace could lead to a loss of pay and jail time.

    • The act of “inciting a riot or breach of peace” in a community, in conjunction with “dereliction of duty”, should be considered “subversive acts against a state”.
      If those acts together, cause any attributable harm to even one person, it is cause for removal from office and arrest.
      Technically these lines were also crossed when he repeatedly called the media “the enemy of the people” which resulted in deaths of members of the free press. So, apparently, there is no law if he is not arrested.

  5. If only the congressmen under criminal indictment are removed, that would be legal, right?

    Also, Rand Paul and a few others wouldn’t have to associate with riff-raff. Because everyone who should be in jail would be in jail.

    Since we are under a State of Emergency, congressional traitors could be tried military tribunals, right?

    This is the time we’ve all been hoping for, REJOICE!
