On Tuesday, General Mike Flynn retweeted a petition, directed to President Donald J. Trump, for a national federal revote of the 2020 Presidential election, that had been addressed earlier in the day by Attorney Lin Wood, and which started discussions among different groups over the Presidential authority used 68 other times in US History, to declare military law or “martial law.”
“I knew that the left would start using fearful images of tanks in the street with the use of the words Martial Law,” the author told me saying that he felt it would show their mindset on the topic. “I am not talking about making the United States a military zone, or about President Trump installing himself, I am talking about a re-vote under the control of the US military, and that is actually their job,” Tom Zawistowski, President We the People Convention, told me.
Flynn’s retweet of the petition, according to Zawistowski, can be seen as an encouragement, “I spoke with General Flynn since he has been pardoned to check some facts with him about what the military can do,” Zawistowski said.
The full petition is linked in Flynn’s following tweet:
In his press release, WTPC Calls for President to Invoke Limited Martial Law to Hold New Election and Protect our Vote, in Full Page Washington Times Ad, if Legislators, Courts and Congress Do Not Follow the Constitution, Zawistowski talks in detail about his motivation to examine the use of martial law during the Civil War period, when Americans were deeply divided over National Issues.
“In the months following the start of the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln struggled to preserve the Union. Many objected to Lincoln’s extraordinary use of Presidential authority, in particular, his suspension of the right of “Habeas Corpus”. Zawistowski wrote.
“That is key,” he told me. “I want President Trump to say that we are handing this over to the military to oversee and that at the end of it all, we will all live with what they determine. I believe that is the only way to solve this mess. I say that if Joe Biden won, the left needs to prove it. There are too many questions over fraud, and lawsuits are not going to fix it. In fact, it feeds the left’s attacks to solve this election mess in the courts. They will say that the election was overturned and used as an excuse for more civil unrest. I think we have to do it by having a revote, and I am getting a lot of support,” Zawistowski said.
“President Trump is not installing himself. I called it out in the petition, and it is important to really understand what we want,” he said.
From the press release, the group calls on President Trump to “exercise the Extraordinary Powers of his office and declare limited Martial Law to temporarily suspend the Constitution and civilian control of these federal elections to have the military implement a national re-vote that reflects the true will of the people. Federal candidates only. Paper ballots. No computers. Hand-counted with both parties watching every vote. Only registered voters. Photo ID to prove residence. Conducted safely with everyone wearing masks and six feet apart, just like we did in Ohio.”
