No, I'm not blaming Biden. If Trump had won re-election, he would have had the power to call in the military in a similar way, for whatever reason.

So then, only Trump could set this up with the military now. Something must be in the works, other than inauguration safety.

Thank you, Actor. I didn't realize term "contracts" were required for voluntary service.

On Wednesday at noon EST Biden will be POTUS regardless of whether any ceremony takes place. At that instant the military takes orders from Biden.

No. Even though the Constitution requires that the new president take an oath SCOTUS has declared that this is not absolutely necessary.

Margie, if you only knew how dead-on right you are, it would make me think you're a DC insider.
