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.

  • The media controls the world views. Only a few spoke out against the Hitler regime as he killed millions of his own people! After the war, many Nations claimed shock as they had never been informed. Hitler had closed the media of his Country as has Obama in much!

  • In order for a President to declare martial law he must have? According to who? The Liberal media already refuses to report on 5 counts of treason filed by an honorable Naval Officer! Just like the Hitler regime, the media let him kill millions of his own people. Ours is much worse on the left! The Liberal media will be more responsible than any politician we have in office for our Nation's destruction.

    Capuring a one lone sentence, Obama hasn't had one valid reason to do what he has done in the last 4 years.   Why does he need to wait to impose martial law over the land?


    Oh, yes,  a crisis!  Obama needs a crisis.  Well, coming up very soon the way a lot of partriots are talking these days.  Many want to get it on with the federal government.  It only takes one situation with a gun and game is on.

    Just look at Sandy Hook Elementary recently and how heated up the war on guns has become with the left wanting to take them away from law abiding citizens.

    Obama could be taken out of power right now, if there were some men with stones, but no.


  • Having read most all the post, it is apparent we all agree it is about to hit the fan and all that is needed it a "trigger" to allow Ovomit to declare Martial Law. However, he's made a big mistake thinking that the active military will follow him blindly.  Those in the military on active duty did so for pride of country and have old timers in their family tree.  I am sure some of you are Oath Keepers.  If not look it up.  More and more men and women are joining ranks in opposition to anything remotely related to firing on any American citizen.  Unlike the last Civil War, there was a distinct dividing line and people headed north or south depending on their beliefs.  Well this won't happen immediately as we are spread all over the United States.  However, I do think there will be some clearly identified states who will band together when it hits the fan.  Whatever is going to happen, I think, will happen this year.  Gas, debt, sequestration, unemployment, Unions, gun control, taxes, health care, etc.  WE THE PEOPLE are done, finished. It stops now!

  • Here! Here! Charles Papp! I am in complete agreement. Anyone who fires on an American citizen who is exercising their first and 2nd Amendment rights IS A DEAD MAN! Any politician who has supported illegal and Un-Constitutional Legislation, especially that which is designed to attack American citizens w/out due process, such as the Patriot Act, the NDAA, and HR347, is a quisling criminal and deserves to receive the same fate as Mussolini! And, any individual who attempts gun confiscation shall also become an enemy of "WE THE PEOPLE!," and will be dealt with in the same manner!

    The conflict will begin shortly I predict, because we have run out of room to give more, and the feds are still trying to take more from us!

  • This is assuming that everybody will abide by the Martial Law Order. Many people will refuse to abide by the order.

  • Hi Melissa,

    Thank YOU for the kind words.  I am a happily married man, but always looking for more Christian friends, and you sound like a pretty smart gal, and I like your style.  My email:   --And maybe you could also comment on one of my many Blog Posts, please.    What you say about obama makes a lot of sense, IMHO.   --Warm Regards,  Tommy Schuckman

  • Ahaaa!  If people read my posts of the near past -- they would see that folks like Glenn Beck was absolutely correct about what obama and his Socialists have planned from the get-go !!  They and the super powers that be [who control the whole WORLD WITH THEIR MONEY, ASSETS AND POWER $$$, influence, greed and lust] are pushing toward a 'NEW WORLD ORDER' ... a 'One World Gov't' and setting things up for the Anti-Christ to walk into the scene...hello.. wake up!  At that time, the 'scoffers' will gap with their mouths wide open as they were all herded together like chattle, slaves, willfully ignorant, useful idiots, as the stink hits the fan... BIG TIME!  Thank you, very much!  Heck.. It's ALL IN THE BOOK, KIND GENTLEMAN AND LADIES.  And you will understand, hopefully, that the more you learn [the Right stuff..KJV] the more you will be humbled, if you have the Spirit.  Yes, some of my words are a bit 'cryptic' today, but I know that the 'chosen few will certainly understand.'  And yes, both sides of the Congress and Senate are bought off, lazy, scared and corrupt, IMHO.  --  Tommy Schuckman,   just a humble, old, disabled Combat Vet.

  • Only a communist dictator would sign such executive orders; where are both houses of congress?  The enumerated executive orders are a violation of our constitution, and warrant impeachment of the phony in the White House.


  • All of those executive orders cited look eerily similar to the ones cited in 2005's "America:  Freedom to Fascism".  Watch it.  Some good info mixed with some BS.  Still interesting.  Don't give Bush or those who cheered him on a pass just because he had a R beside his name.  I didn't hear any of my fellow Rs screaming back then.  I don't know of any good Ds today, but if there were a D like, say, Larry McDonald who was killed aboard flight KAL 007 by a Soviet figher jet in 1983, I'd vote for a D like that over most Rs any day.  We have to break free of this fake R v. D crap.  Hell, even the Libertarian Party has an identity crisis.
