The National Guard is all over the news these days. COVID is still burning through the US, supply chains are breaking down, and cops are still killing people (and themselves). The solution to this systemic chaos?

Deploying the state level part time militia force!

ST. PAUL—Activating nearly 3,000 personnel, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz deployed the National Guard to Minneapolis Friday ahead of next week’s police shooting. “We understand that tempers are flared right now, and we urge you to remain calm and demonstrate lawfully following next Wednesday’s tragedy,” said Walz, who explained that local officials would be imposing curfews throughout the Twin Cities metropolitan area within the next two weeks in response to the impending officer-involved shooting. “We have reason to believe the next shooting of an unarmed resident will be exceptionally egregious, so we’re giving the National Guard a bit of a head start. Know that I will share the same sentiment as the many of you who will pour into the streets in only a few days’ time, but peaceful protesting will be the answer.” At press time, Walz added that he was prepared to deploy another 1,000 troops to stem protests that would arise in response to the massive bloodshed resulting from police clashes with the original group of protesters.

Slightly serious post though, the powers that be love the National Guard because they can be ordered to do just about anything and can't legally say "no."

The government shies away from using the regular Army for this because it would detract from training to fight China and/or Russia in a land war, and mean that they would not be available as a quick response force.

Holy poo poo!

https://cis.org/Bensman/Historic-United-States-First-National-Guard-Soldiers-Start-Arresting-Illegal-Migrants

AUSTIN, Texas — In a dive into new political and legal water, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has initiated the first-ever border security operations in which thousands of National Guard troops — newly imbued with civilian arrest authority and given 40 hours of traditional police training in the use of deadly force — have started handcuffing illegally entering migrants on state trespassing charges.

Small-scale soldier arrest operations began quietly this week as an unprecedented addition to the state’s ongoing “Operation Lone Star” in close physical coordination with a pre-existing border surge of some 1,000 Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) officers concentrated in Val Verde and Starr counties, but also expected to happen elsewhere. Abbott has been signaling for weeks that he was preparing a more aggressive use of the National Guard.

I warned you goddamn kids for the last time to stop talking in class, since you can't listen we are converting this elementary school into a military academy. Start doing pushups.

We're gonna need way more national guard if we expect them to fill in wherever rich people demand wider profit margins in the years ahead, might as well start training the kids now.

Guardsman sort of have less power than normal moderators. They technically need a command from an officer to even hand out a sixer.
