Yikes…Pentagon Looking To Send Military Police To Deal With Minneapolis?

(Tea Party 247) – The Pentagon may soon send Army military police units into the city of Minneapolis to cope with the chaotic riots which have erupted as a result of the killing of George Floyd.

Soldiers from Fort Bragg, North Carolina and Fort Drum, New York have been ordered to be on the ready for deployment within four hours if called, three people with direct knowledge of the orders told Breitbart.

Soldiers in Fort Carson, Colorado and Fort Riley, Kansas have been told to be ready within 24 hours.

Breitbart explains:

The get-ready orders were sent verbally on Friday, after President Donald Trump asked Defense Secretary Mark Esper for military options to help quell the unrest in Minneapolis after protests descended into looting and arson in some parts of the city.

Trump made the request on a phone call from the Oval Office on Thursday night that included Esper, National Security Advisor Robert O’ Brien and several others. The president asked Esper for rapid deployment options if the Minneapolis protests continued to spiral out of control, according to one of the people, senior Pentagon official who was on the call.

”When the White House asks for options, someone opens the drawer and pulls them out so to speak.” the official said.

The person said the military units would be deployed under the Insurrection Act of 1807, which was last used in 1992 during the riots in Los Angeles that followed the Rodney King trial.

“If this is where the president is headed response-wise, it would represent a significant escalation and a determination that the various state and local authorities are not up to the task of responding to the growing unrest,” Brad Moss, a Washington D.C.-based attorney, who specializes in national security.

Members of the police units were on a 30-minute recall alert early Saturday, meaning they would have to return to their bases inside that time limit in preparation for deployment to Minneapolis inside of four hours. Units at Fort Drum are slated to head to Minneapolis first, according to the three people, including two Defense Department officials. Roughly 800 U.S. soldiers would deploy to the city if called.

Breitbart’s sources wished to rename unnamed so that they did not face backlash.

Earlier this week, protests quickly turned violent in Minneapolis and later in several other major US cities in response to a viral video of police officer Derek Chauvin holding his knee on the back of the suspect’s head.

Floyd later died of his injuries while Chauvin was fired, and later arrested and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.

On Thursday, protests turned violent as rioters set fire to the Minneapolis Third Police Precinct where Floyd was arrested.

On Friday, Mayor Jacob Frey (D) ordered a citywide curfew at 8 pm.

We don’t need to remind you that the city, as well as the nation, is in the midst of a national emergency.


  1. What are they waiting for. They should be Nationwide and already here. Send them now and allow them to use force then lock up the democrats running the states and cites allowing this crap to happen and continue. The are responsible for the lives lost, cops, innocent people. Plus these lazy democrats are funding these groups along with Soros and destroying the ecomony before election

  2. LOOKING TO SEND MILITARY POLICE??? What are you waiting for, more burnt businesses, properties, cars, lootings, or deaths???? Enough is enough….

  3. The President is doing what a good leader would do. Something Jacob Frey failed to do. Put down a dangerous rabble that has only one purpose in mind. A rabble that wants to overthrow the rule of law. This destructive force that is pervading many states are no better than the criminals that started this whole mess. The criminals I speak of are Chauvin and Floyd.

  4. I hope the military bring in their riot sound trucks, that causes people to feel on fire, if they get within range. That would not violate the Posse Comitatus Act ,because it would not entail the military doing civilian policing, which is not allowed.. it would be “crowd control” .

  5. My big concern is that we are destroying our own communities. We need to treat each other with Christian love & fellowship. We have to quit fighting because we’re bored.

    • Rod, I agree!!! But that’s not happening in the USA specially not now. You go out there and try to spread your Christian love and I’m sure Anti-Christ or someone will attack you and people like us that want peace. Omar and her daughter and Hillary and Colon Kaepernick and De-Blasio and Don lemons and many others I can name are encouraging this. Look at Hollywood actor and actresses are posting bail for these protesters that have burned down looted destroyed their city. These businesses have to start all over. Maybe these protesters should go and tear Hollywood houses down and see how much they’ll pay then.

    • Rod, you are right in theory but many of these rioters are paid, are from out State and are there to stir up anarchy, looting and chaos. People use to be shot for participating in looting and rioting, now we call them protesters who have constitutional rights! I support peaceful protest but not what is going on across Democratic run cities! This is anarchy, looting and destructive rioting and must be stopped by whatever means possible! It is time to remove these worthless mayors and governors who encounter this behavior.

  6. On the other hand, the blue state, big blue cities might be improved if burned to the ground. The residents voted for what they are getting. There are consequences … sometimes unintended…to whom you vote for.

  7. To little too late. Worthless leadership in Minnesota that left its citizens to be prey of scum bags that were looking for an excuse to destroy and steal. What does burning and stealing have to do with the death of a man? The National Guard should have been ordered right away and to use lethal force if necessary to protect the law abiding citizens. Enough of this nonsense. Weak responses only invites more chaos and insanity.

  8. The President can’t do that or in other words that order will be a moot point, only the governor can send in the national guard, to send active duty members is to violate the;
    Posse Comitatus Act

    The Posse Comitatus Act is United States Federal Law (18 U.S.C. 1385, original at 20 Stat. 152) by President Rutherford B Hayes. The purpose of the act-in concert with the insurrection Act of 1807- is to limit the powers of the federal government in using federal military personnel to enforce domestic policies within the United States. It passed as an amendment to an army appropriation bill following the end of Reconstruction and was updated in 1956 and 1981.

    The act specifically applies only to the United States Army and, as amended in 1956, the United States Air Force. Although the act does not explicitly mention the United States Navy and the United Staes Marines, the Department of the navy has prescribed regulations that are generally construed to give the act force with respect to those services as well. The act does not prevent the Army National guard under state authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within its home state or in an adjacent state if invited by that states governor.

    • The Fed can declare Martial Law, and if you don’t know what that means you best wake up and read. This country is under the law of the military, and a shoot to kill order can very easily be commanded.

    • Manuel Hernandez rest assured we are not talking national guard here we are talking military police and yes the President can bring them in he is Commander and Chief.

  9. Good they need to send in the military to deal with all the democratic states allowing the animals to run wild and destroy property. Th military should be allowed to use lethal force if necessary to stop this crap. The DNC and Soros should have to pay for all the damage they are causing. The democrats were taking the stay at home crap to the extreme causing businesses to fold and people unable to support their families and now they bring in the animals to finish the job just so the ecomony is bad for election time.The democrats even paid them to breach he national treasury and the White House. This should open eyes and vote these democrats out of office in November. They don’t care about us just POWER and then will take away our freedoms one at a time. They support criminals while deeming hard working people and police the criminals

  10. Why say”yikes”???
    ITS TIME FOR MARSHALL LAW!!! THOSE RIOTERS HAVE ALTERED BRAINS, ENRAGED THAT FEEL GOD GAVE THEM A BUM DEAL. This caused subversive element in this country, and outside an opportunity to create carnage!!! Divide and conquer! Jorge (communist) Soros MUST BE INVESTIGATED AND FIND OUT IF HE OR WHO IS FUNDING ANTI FA??? This is Civil warfare ANd WE NEED MILITARY PROTECTION AS POLICE’S HANDS ARE TIED.

  11. Whom ever authored this article needs to research a bit. The ME’s report said that he died because of previous health issues, not just because of his injuries. Don’t go down the same path as CNN and not do detailed research.

    • You are right, but the blacks don’t believe anything they don’t want to believe. They don’t really care about Flyod. We have had over 50 killed in our city just since memorial, with minors and even babies being killed and yet there is not protesting or a pep from anyone in the black community. WHY

  12. Have to send the military to do the cops job because of Democrats again! People keep voting for these criminals. I guess they will keep voting for them until there is no city or town left. GOD Bless our military and protect them. All of this Democrats for power and control they even blame Trump as usual. TRUMP2020!

    • Many residents are fleeing to neighboring states or to communities outside the major cities, where deplorables’ live, for safety.

  13. The really sad part is all the morons that are commiting the crimes arson are so on are showing that they are no better than the piece of crap cop’s that killed Floyd

  14. The Really Sad Part of All of This Is, The People Who Are Doing The Most Damage Are From Other States!! SOROS IS PROBABLY FUNDING THIS!!!!

    • No doubt in my mind that Soros or one of his groups is funding it. MN has made a large number of arrest ( as have other States ) and the majority of them are from out of State. They have communications gear so it shows they are not random Joes and Jills who are behind the arson and looting getting started. They are paid provocateurs.

    • The FBI should start a data base of everyone arrested in any protest and track those who are repeat offenders. Make it an act of terrorism to cross state lines to riot. Follow the money and have stiff and long prison times for repeat offenders.
