(1) The President may employ the armed forces, including the National Guard in Federal service, to–
`(A) restore public order and enforce the laws of the United States when, as a result of a natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition in any State or possession of the United States, the President determines that–`(B) suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy if such insurrection, violation, combination, or conspiracy results in a condition described in paragraph (2).`(A) so hinders the execution of the laws of a State or possession, as applicable,of the United States within that State or possession, that any part or class`(B) opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws.
Let’s take a look at how this may be employed by the Imperial President:
The President may employ the armed forces, including the National Guard in Federal service to suppress, in a State, any conspiracy if such conspiracy results in a hinderance of the execution of the laws of a State so that any part of its people is deprived of a right or privilege or protection named in the Constitution.
Note that the Imperial President may assume command of the State’s National Guard and implement the provisions of this Law, based on his determination alone. There is no provision for judicial review. Once the Imperial President implements this Law, there is no Constitutional Government.
Now, to put this into context. Below is a story about how law enforcement is arresting journalists and others in the Twin Cities who are planning on protesting the RNC convention. It is not too much of a stretch to say they are conspiring, and the effect of their conspiracy will be to hinder the freedom of assembly of the RNC convention, and will involve many minor infractions of the law – disturbing the peace, obstructing traffic, that sort of thing.
Under the provisions of Law, the Imperial President may send in the armed forces to arrest and hold all such “conspirators” indefinitely. Indeed, once the provisions of this law have been implemented, each detainee may be considered an “unlawful enemy combatant.” If they fail to provide proof of citizenship, they could be held as an “unlawful alien enemy combatant” and be subjected to the provisions of the Military Commissions Act.
