Federal funding for the arming and training of local militias is established in the American Constitution.
Today the only recognized American militia is the National Guard, but that is not the original model. Pre-Constitution, of course, it was the Minute Men, ordinary citizens who were prepared to drop what they were doing and form up on the village square on a minute's notice.
Even post-Constitutional ratification, it was pretty much the same, meaning that every able bodied man was, besides whatever else he was, a citizen-soldier, ready at a moment's notice.
Authority over local militia units is left to the sovereign states by the constitution. We have stated elsewhere herein that the local militiaman should be under the authority and control of the County Sheriff, who is the only cop in American directly elected by and solely accountable to the voting citizens of the county.
The Sheriff is, therefore, the logical center for the protection of the county, and the most logical seat of authority to recruit, equip, train and discipline the local militia, with state and federal authority being secondary to his (or hers).
The reason that the lowest level of government should have the greatest authority over the citizen soldier is that one purpose of the militia is to defend the citizenry against a higher government gone rogue or tyrannical and suppressing the citizen rights guaranteed by the Constitution, as we see in Jefferson's words in the Declaration:
Thus, the militia is not solely intended to protect against foreign invaders and insurrections, but also to protect against a higher government gone rogue.
Where would Ukraine be today if her ordinary citizenry were unarmed, undisciplined, untrained and not dedicated to the survival of their own borders, their own sovereignty and their own nation?
If we had armed, trained and disciplined local militias under the authority of county Sheriffs, with urban, suburban, township and rural area militia units under designated Sheriff Deputies;
And if such local militias in border areas actually began to enforce federal, state and local laws covering border security, immigration and invasion, and built walls, and used force to respell invaders and arrest criminals;
Would the criminal Biden/Harris regime try to forcibly suppress them, and if they did, would that not raise the ire of County Sheriffs and their Militias in and all around Washington DC;
And are not the members of American forces not sworn to uphold and defend, not the President, and not the government, and not even the land or the people of the USA, but, exclusively, the Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land;
And, does not the Uniform Code of Military Justice insist that all members of the military must obey all lawful orders, which is another way of saying that members of the military must disobey all unlawful orders?
The criminal Biden/Harris regime and their Marxocrat Party have race on the brain syndrome; they can't get race off of their corrupt little minds. The least important factor in judging men is, to them, the most vital. Having sinned against the black race in their black history as Democrats/Confederates, as opponents of American abolition and desegregation and as sponsors of the KKK and authors of the infamous Black Codes and Jim Crow Laws, they turn all that around and blame it on the whole nation and even the whole white race, and wash their hands of it on the public stage of politics.
With Wokie-weirdo generals like Miley, everything sooner or later is to be blamed on the white race. He sees a white supremacist, white nationalist and white racist under every bed in America, right alongside global-warming, non-recycling, homophobic, dirty rotten SUV drivers.
But the fact of the matter is that there are far more black supremacists, black nationalists and black racist in America than there are white ones. And they were made that way, not born that way, thanks to the Marxocrat Party and Cultural Marxism.
But there is a reawakening going on in America and in the world, and this reawakening is as much alive among America's blacks as anyone else. Everyone with eyes to see can see what's going on.
It is abundantly clear how the Biden/Harris regime and their Marxocrat Party hate America, American patriots and the American Constitution. They despise the very idea that our most precious legal rights as American citizens were endowed by God and then legally protected by the Constitution. Thus, they deny God, they deny the rights, and they even deny the Constitution.
But the Constitution declares itself to be the supreme law of the land.
And they hate that fact.
They want power. They want authority. They want to rule. They refuse to be subject to an old piece of paper signed into law centuries ago. They spit on it; they scorn the very document they are sworn to uphold in the performance of their very offices.
They seek to replace rule of law with rule of man.
Let's look at the American Oath Of Office, as quoted from the Trust page:
Why is it important to look at the American oaths of office here?
They point out the big difference between America and every other nation on earth. Our allegiance is to the law, not to any man, and not to any government. Allegiance is sworn to the Constitution. The Law.
Sworn-in military must obey the commander in chief and all duly appointed superior officers, but, again, first allegiance is to the law, not to the men. When any orders, even Presidential orders, are in conflict with the law, the law takes precedence. No man can use the authority of his office to violate the Constitution or cause others to violate it. Not even a commander in chief.
The President, too, is ruled by the Constitution, and subject to the law on an equal footing with the lowest new recruit. That's why he swore in his oath of office to preserve, protect and defend it.
That's what makes us a nation of laws and not of men. Our only ruler is the law, and it rules all of us equally.
And that's why we need to get back to that old time citizen-soldier concept, and reestablish local and county militias under county Sheriffs and their deputies. And, we need to pay a lot more attention to the amendment the Marxocrats hate most, the Second Amendment.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport. Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matthew 7:13–15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator's supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights." --Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others." --St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
