So I just read the military can deploy on american cities without the orders coming from the civilian leadership. Is this even true

Hmm it still seems to be a huge step in the wrong direction

tells me this is probably domestic propaganda. The US military does not have the power to modify US Code. That's something that only the executive and legislative branches have the ability to do.

Also, the first paragraph in the "new law" says exactly:

Quote:
The primary restriction on DoD participation in civilian law
enforcement activities is the Posse Comitatus Act. It provides that
whoever willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse
comitatus or otherwise to execute U.S. laws, except in cases and under
circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of
Congress, shall be fined under title 18, U.S.C., or imprisoned not more
than two years, or both.
That is pretty clear, that the Army and Air Force cannot be used to execute US law unless authorized by the US constitution, the US President, or Congress.
