Trump's call-up - is it war or martial law?

Call-up in USA – Huge

27March, 2020

US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order authorizing the call-up of up to a million reserve military personnel in the army, navy, air force and coast guard.

Secretaries of Defense and Homeland Security – which is in charge of the Coast Guard units not subordinated to the Navy – are now authorized to order individual members and units of the Ready Reserve under their jurisdiction, to “active duty not to exceed 24 consecutive months,” Trump noted in the executive order.

The number of mobilized reservists is “not to exceed 1,000,000 members on active duty at any one time.” The Pentagon and Homeland Security are supposed to ensure “appropriate consultation is undertaken with relevant state officials” about using National Guard reserves activated under this order.

On its face, this is about the COVID-19 disease.

But word I am getting is that we are either going to war, or going under Martial Law. NOT SURE WHICH.

Christopher Greene tends to over-hype things but he may just be right on this.
