Herd on a podcast today some parents hearing from their active duty marines that they are going to be deployed to D.C. soon, Anyone hear of this ? Anyone here have a active duty marine in the family?
They're finally going to drain the swamp? I know ... wishful thinking! I'm sure that if they ARE being deployed most of them are doing so against their will. Most wish it was to clean up Washington D.C. and go after America's domestic enemies. The place is crawling with them.Herd on a podcast today some parents hearing from their active duty marines that they are going to be deployed to D.C. soon, Anyone hear of this ?

Even when cops are available, they can’t be used ( in the US) to enforce civil law against civilians outside military facilities. There are exceptions for weapons of mass destruction and insurrection.
With respect..."The constitution is an archaic document that has NO relevance in today's society!"
The democrats have thoroughly annulled the constitution in the past decade. It no longer applies. Most government workers in all levels of government don't even take their oaths seriously. And most people today can't even recite the Bill of Rights or have any notion of their constitutional freedoms as they are annotated.
Many in congress don't even know how the government itself works! Or care for that matter!
Title 10, extends the requirement to the other armed branches other than the Coast Guard. IIRC, originally the Navy was used for high seas law enforcement. ( 19 century?)."18 U.S.C. § 1385. Use of Army and Air Force as posse comitatus Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both."
This is from Wikipedia. While I understand that Wikipedia is not an authoritative source, it is generally fairly accurate.
If this is accurate, then the Marines are not precluded from being deployed domestically since they are not part of either Army or Air Force. With that being said, while I would not put it past them, I will believe it when it happens.
