New Proposed Measure Assigns Power of Martial Law to the Executive

Mitch McConnell sneaked in a res­ol­u­tion – known as an au­thor­iz­a­tion for the use of mil­it­ary force – on Wednesday night when all anyone could talk about was the blizzard traveling up the East coast.

The media was taken by surprise on Thursday morning.

The purpose is to authorize the president to fight ISIS though in some ways it will limit the next president but what is noteworthy about it is the fact that it does not limit his reach in terms of geography. The fear is that it allows martial law.

From Defense One:

The AUMF put for­ward by Mc­Con­nell would not re­strict the pres­id­ent’s use of ground troops, nor have any lim­its re­lated to time or geo­graphy. Nor would it touch on the is­sue of what to do with the 2001 AUMF, which the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion has used to at­tack IS­IS des­pite that au­thor­iz­a­tion’s in­struc­tions to use force against those who planned the 9/11 ter­ror­ist at­tacks.

ISIS is in the United States but we are not at a point where we need this extreme measure. Why give this power to this maniac in the White House?

The AUMF, known as “Rule XIV,” has not been placed on the calendar which means it could come up at any time and will. It’s being fast-tracked.

The res­ol­u­tion already has four Re­pub­lic­an co­spon­sors: Sens. Lind­sey Gra­ham, Daniel Coats, Joni Ernst, and Or­rin Hatch.

Some Demo­crats were crit­ic­al of even the pres­id­ent’s own draft AUMF, warn­ing that they’d need ad­di­tion­al re­stric­tions from the ad­min­is­tra­tion on troop levels and geo­graph­ic bound­ar­ies be­fore they could sup­port any au­thor­iz­a­tion, Defense One noted.

There is deep division over this bill and there will be debate. Hopefully they will specify to not include the US.

Obama has enough power to go after ISIS but refuses to do it. His rules of engagement have been absurd.

The devil will be in the details.

Martial law has no precise meaning but it has common features – it contemplates military force;  government military personnel have the authority to make and enforce civil and criminal laws; and civil liberties are suspended. Martial law was declared by Lincoln during the Civil War – Proclamation 113 – and our National Defense Authorization Act included a provision, now removed, which stripped U.S. citizens of their constitutional rights.

The United States under this administration is currently not engaged in the pursuit of liberty or equality of opportunity, rather, ours is a country pursuing social engineering and redistribution to equalize the end results of every single thing that takes place.

Barack Obama and his team are social engineering the nation into a utopian vision that has little relation to what our Founding Fathers foresaw when they developed our Constitution.

Barack Obama is diversifying so-called wealthy neighborhoods seemingly without any authority to do so. He’s directly addressing the suburbs which he sees as white and privileged.

He believes there is one pot of resources and the suburbs are stealing them from the urban areas. He seeks to remedy that and equalize all resources.

What Would Happen If Martial Law Was Declared in America?

The Daily Sheeple

In recent weeks, there has been a lot of concern that an upcoming eight week military exercise on U.S. soil known as “Jade Helm” is actually a dress rehearsal for the imposition of martial law in this country. One of the reasons for the high level of concern is that we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of “urban warfare exercises” conducted by the U.S. military in major U.S. cities over the past decade – including exercises where “dissidents” are hunted down, arrested and hauled away.  As our world becomes increasingly unstable, and as our society rapidly decays from within, many believe that it is only a matter of time before the executive branch will have sufficient excuse to use the extensive martial law powers that it has been accumulating since 9/11. When that day arrives, what will our nation look like? What would actually happen if martial law was declared in America?

Executive Orders & Internment Camps: The Groundwork Has Been Laid for Martial Law in the Event of a National Emergency

Freedom Outpost

The ground work has already been laid, that in the event of a national emergency, with a mere stroke of Obama’s pen this is how martial law could play out.  This is, in part, what Justice Antonin Scalia referenced last month.

Here are the Executive orders already in place in the event of a national crisis:

A Storm is Brewing on the Horizon – Will Obama Declare Martial Law Before 2016?

Freedom Outpost

If you’re like me you are paying attention to what is transpiring within our government. Many senior General officers are being fired (or “retired early”). Homeland Security, the Internal Revenue Service, the Social Security Administration and several other federal agencies are soliciting for hollow point ammunition on the pretext it will be used for “target practice.” Why does the Social Security Administration need hollow point ammo for target practice, you may ask? They don’t, but since the information about DHS soliciting for millions of rounds has some people alarmed, the government has decided to spread-out the purchases amongst other agencies as not to alarm the civilian population. This also coincides with foreign troops (Russian) practicing crowd control maneuvers on American soil. There has been an American “practice town” built for just this purpose. I could site more instances regarding FEMA camps and even the American 3rd Infantry Division’s new mission, but you get the idea, right?

Barack Hussein Obama is making power grabs more and more; and is openly circumventing the Congress to consolidate more power to the office of the president. This should have some people very alarmed.

Obama Must Be Forced to Resign

CFP

A December 17 Reuters article was titled, “Obama’s Current Approval Rating Is The Ugliest Since Nixon.”

“President Barack Obama is ending his fifth year in office with the lowest approval ratings at this point in the presidency since President Richard Nixon, according to a new Washington Post/ABC poll released Tuesday.”

Nixon was forced to resign on April 22, 1974, after two long years that followed the revelations about Watergate, a break-in of the Democratic Party offices in Washington, DC. The backlash against the horrors of ObamaCare, concerns about the “deal” with Iran, and a succession of scandals from Fast and Furious to Benghazi, have raised fear and anger over his judgment, competence, and behavior in office.

Former-Navy SEAL Ben Smith: “Government is Creating Conditions to Impose Martial Law”

Freedom Outpost

Former-Navy SEAL Ben Smith spoke recently at the World War II Memorial alongside other American veterans,  following that event, he dropped a bombshell on Fox News (the majority of us  have already been thinking what Smith said) and claimed that the US government  is creating conditions that are necessary to impose martial law in the United  States.

Smith told Fox host Bill Hemmer what many of us have been suspicious of all  along under Barack Obama; that the federal government is looking for means of  creating an atmosphere for implementing martial law.

The former Navy  SEAL told Fox that he believed that the federal government was attempting to  provoke the veterans to “do something.”  

 

When asked what he meant by that, Smith said, “That’s not just my statement,”  he said.  “Within the (perspective) of people who see things wrong here, who  are  looking at the shutdown, this can be absolutely planned, and it’s a  conversation  topic.”

“They want us to do something,” he continued.  “They either want to diminish  our voice or our significance, or draw contact, and they can crush us.”

Smith went on to name names.
