NG can be federalized. Plenty of Army Reserve units as well. Some of the governors have state troops. They might have to be called up if the Guard gets federalized.
Not very likely.
I often agree with you but we differ on this. Before the national guard we had militias. The militias existed to protect our borders, not to provoke other countries and invade them. Ill spare you the long story on this however. The national guard made up 45 percent of our forces in Iraq. If you think the government can call upon the national guard to serve in Iraq but it is above them to call upon the national guard for action within our borders then you may be short sighted on this topic.

California Gov Newsom said he is sequestering Hotels and Motels to house the homeless, and to use for hospitals. He assured us too that he is ready to call Martial Law if he needs to enforce the new rules. People 65 and older are told to stay home.
