With President Obama’s approval rating reaching the lowest of any President at this point ever, the dollar losing value, social security running low, two wars, a bailout, a stimulus, a proposed Government health care bill, a cap and tax bill, unusually high unemployment, and a swine flu, Martial Law is looking more and more like a reality.
So what is Martial law?
Martial Law is the suspension of the United States Constitution and total Government control. The Constitution protects your rights as an American, but once Martial Law is implemented and the Constitution is suspended you no longer have Any rights. Cities will be locked down, no one will get in or out. All communication will be cut off including internet and phones. Your bank accounts will be frozen. Your weapons and property will be seized. You will be given identification to carry around with you and you will be rationed food, water, and personal affects in a best case scenario. There will be curfews and you will be a prisoner of the Federal Government. Once this happens there is no escape. Once this happens, your life is no longer under your control. How long would it be for if it were to happen? Well, you would have to take into consideration who is in charge. Congress will no longer have a say. You will no longer be represented because you will no longer have the right to be represented. If you are scared after reading this you should be. The Constitution is the only thing that protects you from total tyranny. With the stroke of a pen, all that you know and have known can be taken away. There are other details to consider like rape and murder by Government employees but you really don’t want to think of all those kinds of possibilities. That’s why people have been urging their representatives to actually read the bills they are voting on before they vote.
What could trigger Martial Law? According to sources, pretty much anything could trigger it now. If you recall just before the bailout there were threats of Martial Law. Homeland Security keeps warning of homegrown acts of terrorism. There have been suitcase size nuclear weapons reported missing. Some say they were smuggled across the Mexican border which by the way has still not been secured even though money had been put aside. The swine flu is the most talked about. Last week, Republican Representative Paul Broun of Georgia warned at a town hall meeting that the “socialist elite” could be getting ready to declare martial law in the United States using a pandemic disease as the pretext. “They’re trying to develop an environment where they can take over,” he told attendees according to an article in the Athens Banner-Herald. “We’ve seen this historically.” (Read More…)
Northcom has already been created against the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 by positioning 20,000 US troops on American soil to “help in the event of an emergency or attack.” That is what the State Militia (National Guard) was to be used for. Now the Pentagon has asked Congress and the Secretary of Defense for 400,000 more troops. That is a pretty large number considering many Americans own weapons and can fend for themselves or, do they plan to take those weapons away, like when Martial Law is implemented? The Pentagon has also sought power over the National Guard which has the Governors association flustered.
The Governors association has written the Pentagon in protest of this bold move. It seems as though the Federal Government is planning to take over the States power which is also unconstitutional but remember, if Martial Law is declared, there is no Constitution. However, in signing the Constitution, the States were to keep their Sovereignty. That means even if Martial Law is declared by the Federal Government they are to have no control over the States. The Tenth Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights and was ratified on December 15, 1791. It states the Constitution’s principle of Federalism by providing that powers not granted to the Federal Government or prohibited to the states are reserved to the states and to the people. Many States have or have begun to pass new legislation to reinforce this Tenth Amendment. These States include Washington , New Hampshire , Arizona , Montana , Michigan , Missouri , Oklahoma , California , and Georgia . Colorado, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Alaska, Kansas, Alabama, Nevada, and Maine have considered it. Mississippi and Montana have passed such legislation. Does this mean it cannot happen? Certainly not, people must be aware of what is happening in their Government and get involved. Otherwise, the representatives will continue to pass this sort of legislation that makes it all possible.
A Continental Congress has just concluded.
As important as all of the above is, the most popular news stories have been “A cat who wrote a meowmoir”, “The cast of twighlight”, and “Love,sex,suffering, the creativity of chaos.” It’s no wonder Martial Law and the destruction of the greatest country in the world is on our doorsteps.
