Is martial law the ultimate goal?

With everything happening to this country of ours it is getting harder and harder to maintain a cool head and not jump to conclusions but if we sit back and view the last four years as well as what’s happening now an image is starting to appear of what might possibly be our future.

During President Obama's first term he laid the ground work. President Obama issued over 144 executive orders, many dealing with martial law. As the Supreme Court already opinioned when looking at President Lincolns use of martial law, "Martial law ... destroys every guarantee of the Constitution.". This means when martial law is declared we as Americans have no rights at all.

During President Obama's first term he wrote Executive Orders granting the government the power to take over all communications media, electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals. He also wrote an Executive Order where the government can take over all modes of transportation and control of the highways and sea ports. That means Obama can confiscate your horse, your donkeys, your bicycle or even your riding lawn mower. All forms of transportation. Executive orders signed by Obama also include railroads, inland water ways, public storage facilities, airports and airplanes including commercial planes can all be taken over by the government.

Think that’s bad, well it gets worse, much worse.

Executive Orders have also been signed allowing the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision. To take over all health education and welfare functions. To allow the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate and establish new locations for populations, AND grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute Industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

If that doesn’t scare you then look at this. An Executive order has also been signed which allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit, and the flow of money in U.S. financial institutions in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when the president declares a state of emergency, Congress cannot review the action for six months.

Now why that last part that congress cannot review the action for six months? To understand why President Obama wanted that executive order lets look at what martial law is. Martial law is the suspension of civil authority and the imposition of military authority. When we say a region or country is "under martial law," we mean to say that the military is in control of the area, that it acts as the police, as the courts, as the legislature. The president is the commander in chief of the military and as such in full control of the martial law. Seeing how the constitution is suspended during martial law and the President is in control the only ones able to stop martial law is the congress. In effect that Executive order that says Congress cannot review the action for six months in effect give the President full unchallenged control for six months.

A little tidbit to add to martial law here is that our constitution Article 1, Section 9 states, "The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it." The concept of the of Habeas Corpus is that a person may not be held by the government without a valid reason for being held. A writ means the government would have to provide a person to a court to show just reason for holding them. With the suspension of the writ the government can detain and hold a person indefinitely.

In a nut shell a President can declare martial law, would have six months of free reign to do as he pleases while rounding up any congressional opposition to his martial law and detaining them indefinitely and doing this totally legally.

In order for a president to declare martial law he must have a valid reason to do so. For that lets look at our present situation. Today we have a president whom has openly declared war on the second amendment to our constitution. This is causing a great deal of civil unrest in the nation. Being told that their actions are unconstitutional doesn’t slow the President down at all, in fact it emboldens him to push even harder. To top that off our President is also pushing us to the fiscal cliff of ruin. When asked about the out of control spending our President replies that we do not have a spending problem. Top that off with our government printing money as fast as possible as well as demanding unrestricted borrowing powers we can see we will be heading to a financial meltdown very soon. A financial meltdown coupled with civil unrest over constitutional violations would be the catalyst for open revolt and exactly what would be needed in order to openly declare martial law. Then we all are doomed.

  • It is quite possible that Obama may create a national crisis to declare martial law and disolve Congress aside from a small council of government appointed officials. Then Obama will ask for a blank check to do as he pleases. We will then be a country like Zimbabwe where the president has ultimate power.

  • If he kills all the workers, who pays for the jerks?

  • Greg, if that douchebag wants to start a civil war, then he will get what he wants, no matter what we do! The feds have already shown that everytime "WE THE PEOPLE..." lay down in order to prevent an armed confrontation, they just ratchet up the pressure a little more. That makes this a zero-sum game! No matter how we play, if we let them keep pushing, they will just take more ground. If we push back, they push back all the harder. And, we all know the truth. If we push back hard enough to stop them in their tracks, they will initiate the conflict which allows them to declare martial law!

    So, where does that leave us? It means that the war is inevitable, and there is no way to prevent it unless the actors change, and they have told us and shown us, that  they have no intention on allowing that to happen! There is no choice at this point. It doesn't matter if they declare martial law. It doesn't matter if they call on UN troops to help control the population. And, it doesn't matter if they pass laws that violate the Constitution. What matters at this point, is very simple. What matters is whether we have the will to win this coming struggle, or not! We may not know who wins, but our posterity will know! They will know if we had the courage and the inner strength to face down, or kill, the enemy of everything we hold dear in this country! Did we show future generations that we did everything we could to prevent this conflict, and when it was unavoidably thrust upon this generation, DID WE PASS THE TEST? That is all that matters, and that is what history will record.

  • All of bo's "Executive Orders" are only "orders" because he says they are.  I say he's not even a "legal" president so screw him and anything he says.

    Try and make me do it.

  • wakethesheeple - agreed; the truth is bad enough, we don't need to embellish. Of course, we don't have an editorial staff, we are our own. It is important to keep our information as accurate as possible. That way, they can argue the point but they can't argue the facts. Thanks for the correction.

  • We are already there with all the executive orders and are waiting for the go-ahead from the banksters as to when to spring the trap. Once that happens its American Revolution #2 and we will not be able to defend Israel and BAMMMM its Revelations in real life and time.


  • It doesn't matter how may exe-orders BHO wrote. What matters is that this commie/muslumbrotherhood plant in the White House. Screamed loudly about Bush writing exe-orders and he is going crazy writing them. What matters is he is laying the ground work for martial law. Take the UN gun treaty, the way he has remained silent on the Morsi exe-order on christians in Eygpt, and the way he can't be trusted on anything the man says ! What is the debate ? The debate is how any americans will our Hitler in the white house be willing to kill and murder to stay in power ? That is the question. We saw how willing liberals are when it comes to murdering americans. Waco, Ruby Ridge and mostly likely others that the lame stream media covered up for them. Face it people we can't trust the lame stream media ( Who's been running interference for the criminal BHO since he wasa Illinios state senator.) to report the truth anymore. You may as well call them the Propaganda Ministry of the America. I'm not a very religious person so I wont preach or give a sermon. But I will say arguing over how many exe-orders he wrote is irrelevant. With all the BS thrown around by the liberals in DC and on the three main TV channels that is so obvious ! What is the problem ? Let me remaind you the first casualty in war, love and politics is the truth. Victory is the only truth ! With so much hanging in the balance to lose what is coming is not an option.
