DC Mayor Now To Receive Presidential Style Powers

(PatriotHeadline.com)- Far-left Democratic mayor of Washington, D.C., Muriel Bowser, is expected to receive the presidential-style powers over the city, courtesy of a new bill proposed by Senate Democrats.

In January, the District of Columbia National Guard Home Rule Act was introduced by Democrats in the Senate. The proposed legislation is designed to give mayor Bowser the same authority over the deployment of the National Guard in the District of Columbia as governors in many states.

It follows a year of left-wing violence across the United States, routinely ignored and even rewarded by Democrats like Mayor Bowser, who even renamed a section of 16th Street NW in the city “Black Lives Matter Plaza.”

Despite Bowser failing to call in the National Guard when Black Lives Matter was tearing up her city, and after multiple violent Antifa riots, the new legislation was introduced in response to the January 6 riots that Democrats paint as a Trump-inspired insurrection.

The law is also a step towards granting statehood to Washington, D.C. in all but name, granting the city’s mayor the powers of a state governor. The bill amends the Official Code of Washington, D.C., replacing the words “President of the United States’ with “Mayor of the District of Columbia,” effectively removing presidential powers and granting them to the mayor of the city.

Which, let’s face it, is going to be a Democrat for a very long time…

The legislation would even replace the phrasing “the commanding general of the District of Columbia National Guard” and replace it with “the mayor of the District of Columbia.”

If approved, the changes would also give Mayor Bowser authority over the “consent for relocation of units” and the “issuance of supplies.” She would also be given control over the “appointment of fiscal officers.”

In essence, she would become President of Washington, D.C., and the President of the United States would not have control over the nation’s capital as is traditionally the chase.

Mayor Bowser famously battled with former President Donald Trump over the issue of deploying the National Guard during the 2020 Democrat-inspired riots.
