Eagles seek to end slide, boost playoff hopes at Green Bay

Even after losing each of the last three weeks to fall four games below .500, the Philadelphia Eagles somehow still have a legitimate shot to win the NFC East.

But they’re running out of time to turn things around.

The Eagles (3-7-1) trail the New York Giants and Washington by half a game in the division as they head to Green Bay for a Sunday matchup with the NFC North-leading Packers (8-3).

“Probably every team in the NFC East is going right now, ‘Hey, we control our own destiny,’ “ Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. “We’re just trying to win another game. We’re trying to, at the end, be in first place in the NFC East. As crazy as that sounds, we’re right there in the mix.”

While the Eagles are fighting for their playoff lives, the Packers are breezing toward a second straight division title. They own a three-game

Michael Flynn’s call for martial law is nearly seditious

Just days after receiving a controversial pardon from President Trump, retired general Michael Flynn showed some of the character defects that got him into hot water in the first place. Worse, he did it in a way dangerous for the republic, which makes it and him inexcusable. He should apologize, and then take a long, self-imposed hiatus from the public eye.

Specifically, Flynn approvingly retweeted a press release from a radical group calling for the Constitution to be “temporarily suspend[ed]” and a form of martial law enacted. It also threatens “to take matters into our own hands” if Trump does not order the military to conduct an entirely new national election. Is that a threat of rebellion? Seriously?

The group also demanded that Trump “silence the destructive media’s one-sided propaganda.” Not to try to counteract it with his own arguments, mind you, but to

Trump Should Declare Martial Law And Redo The Election, Michael Flynn Suggests

Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser who was pardoned by the president last week for lying during the Russia investigation, wants Trump to declare martial law and “temporarily suspend the Constitution” until a new election is held.

Flynn, who had been awaiting sentencing for lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts before Trump’s pardon, on Tuesday retweeted a news release from a right-wing Ohio group called We The People Convention asking the president to declare martial law so troops can supervise a do-over of the 2020 election.

Flynn tagged many conservative celebs in his post and added: “Freedom never kneels except for God.”

The news release cites “massive, planned, illegal election fraud” carried out by Democrats. Trump lost the election handily to President-elect Joe Biden and no widespread fraud has been found.

If the president doesn’t declare martial law, the statement retweeted by Flynn warns, “we

Tea party leader urges Trump to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law to hold new vote

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A prominent Ohio tea party leader has taken out a full-page ad in the Washington Times calling on President Donald Trump to temporarily suspend the Constitution and declare martial law to stage a “re-vote” of the 2020 presidential election.

The ad, placed by Tom Zawistowski of the We the People Convention, drew swift criticism from at least one top Ohio Republican.

In the ad, Zawistowski states that when Democrat Joe Biden is formally elected the next president, as is expected, Trump should order the U.S. military to oversee a new election for federal candidates using only paper ballots.

Zawistowski cited unfounded claims of voter fraud, many of which have been vocally pushed by Trump himself. Trump’s campaign has filed dozens of lawsuits in battleground states narrowly won by Biden, though those suits have mostly been thrown out or withdrawn.

Roger Stone says Trump should consider declaring martial law over loss: ‘all options on the table’

Roger Stone on Wednesday followed Michael T. Flynn to become the second convicted former Trump adviser in two days to suggest the president declare martial law due to losing his race for reelection.

Stone waxed conspiratorial about Mr. Trump‘s projected loss to Democratic rival Joseph R. Biden and suggested he consider responding by deploying the U.S. military a day after Flynn did the same.

Flynn and Stone each served on the president’s election campaign, making them among his most prominent defenders to recently suggest he declare martial law because his bid for a second term failed.

Notably, Flynn and Stone were each charged with crimes in federal court and subsequently plead guilty and were convicted, respectively. They were ultimately spared prison time by Mr. Trump, however.

Stone told conservative media figure and fellow conspiracy theorist Alex Jones that he believes Mr. Trump should not rule out either invoking the Insurrection

Michael Flynn calls for Trump to suspend the constitution and declare martial law to re-run election

With a fresh presidential pardon still warm, former national security advisor Michael Flynn has called on Donald Trump to suspend the constitution and declare martial law for the military to run a new election.

The retired general tweeted out a full-page ad that ran in The Washington Times that claimed the extraordinary executive actions were necessary to avoid the alternative of an imminent “shooting civil war”.

Captioning the tweet “Freedom never kneels except for God [pray emoji, US flag emoji]”, Mr Flynn linked to ad from a TEA Party-affiliated group called We The People Convention.

The 1,500-word manifesto invokes Abraham Lincoln’s extraordinary use of presidential authority to suspend habeas corpus as it compares the more widely-known civil war with Antifa and Black Lives Matter attacking major cities with their anti-American agenda.

Roger Stone urges Trump to consider declaring martial law based on voter fraud conspiracy theories

ROGER STONE: Right now I think we have to put all differences aside because what we have here is — you’re absolutely right — nothing short of a foreign governmental takeover of the United States. Let’s go to that show where I said specifically if there was overwhelming and compelling evidence of fraud and it was connected to the voting system itself, which it has been, then the president would have to consider the 1807 insurrection law or martial law. Headline: “Stone says if Trump loses he should impose martial law.” Not what I said. However, all the conditions that I did list in that article, Lin Wood seems to believe that we have exceeded, and I think the president has to have all options on the table as to how he proceeds. The one thing he cannot do, Alex, is quit. He has powerful forces arrayed against him.

Calls for martial law and US military oversight of new presidential election draws criticism

The idea that the U.S. military would oversee a new nationwide presidential election — ordered under martial law by President Donald Trump — is “insane in a year that we didn’t think could get anymore insane,” a defense official tells Military Times.

Yet retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn promoted that exact idea Tuesday evening when he tweeted a press release from an Ohio-based conservative political organization.

Calling former Vice President Joe Biden’s Nov. 3 victory over Trump “fraudulent,” the Ohio-based “We The People Convention” took out a full-page ad in the Washington Times on Tuesday urging Trump to “immediately declare a limited form of Martial Law, and temporarily suspend the Constitution and civilian control of these federal elections, for the sole purpose of having the military oversee a re-vote.”

The organization called for the revote to include only registered voters with photo IDs, to be limited to only paper

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Flynn, who was Trump’s first national security adviser and before that his most important military validator, circulated a petition for martial law in a Tuesday tweet. “Freedom never kneels except for God,” Flynn commented.

The petition, from a Tea Party affiliate named Tom Zawistowski, implored Trump to proclaim “limited martial law” and order the military to conduct a do-over of the presidential election so as to reflect what it claims is “the true will of the people.” It explicitly envisioned “temporarily suspend[ing] the Constitution and civilian control of these federal elections.” And it also reflects a recent rise in desperation from

It also lifted restrictions on local media publications that had been only been allowed to publish official government information when reporting on the army and military activity.

The Karabakh conflict, which erupted on Sept. 27 came to a halt on Nov. 10 when a Russian-brokered peace deal ushered in a ceasefire. Swaths of territory in Nagorno-Karabakh previously controlled by ethnic Armenians were handed over to Azerbaijan, whose forces had recaptured some areas
