MARK LEVIN (HOST): You have civil unrest in these cities. You have the inability of the police departments, with mayors and -- and governors who will not quell the violence.
Well, the President of the United States has a responsibility too.
The governors can use the state militia -- that is the National Guard -- to assist law enforcement. That doesn't trigger the Act. The assistance rendered by the National Guard, military reserve, those are forces that are in the state.
But the President of the United States can call up the National Guard and federalize them, he can call up the reserves and federalize them, he can also call up active duty military as Eisenhower did -- the 101st Airborne.
These lootings and riotings and arsons need to be put down.
God willing the President will be re-elected, and he'll use the Insurrection Act to bring safety, and peace, in these areas where -- where we have mobsters.
They're looting, they're killing, we're burning. You cannot have mayhem in a civil society, city after city.
