Is This the Death of Posse Comitatus?

The Pentagon is pushing for the authority to post 400,000 troops on the streets of America for active patrol in the event of an “emergency”. (The President will arbitrarily get to decide what qualifies as an “emergency”).

This would violate the Posse Comitatus Act. Many state governors rightfully oppose the idea as the latest assault on states rights. The ACLU is on the correct side of this one:

Mike German, the ACLU’s national security policy counsel, expressed amazement “that the military would propose such a broad set of authorities and potentially undermine a 100-year-old prohibition against the military in domestic law enforcement with no public debate and seemingly little understanding of the threat to democracy.”

There is a dangerous trend here with the recent pushes for martial law. Notice that the push for martial law is always coming from those in power, not those who would be subject to it.

The Swine Flu Hoax: Governments Scare People to Justify Power-Grabbing

We have been bombarded with mainstream “news” stories this last week about a Swine Flu pandemic, with hundreds or thousands dead (all of which turned out to be lies!).

We also heard about the possibility of martial law being used to quarantine U.S. cities and to force mandatory inoculations on the citizenry — never mind that during all of this hysteria there were no calls from those people to close down the border with the country which supposedly was the source of the “outbreak”.

Lets not forget that at the height of this artificial panic Obama moved to give 1.5 billion dollars to friends in the big pharma/medical industrial complex to combat the Swine Flu (a virus which many scientists and doctors are saying could only have been manufactured in a laboratory).

There were also top globalists that called the Swine Flu fears good for world government. It’s the same old story: governments use (or manufacture) a crisis, then pose as the savior while implementing a “solution” that takes away freedoms from the general population while magically making those in control more powerful and more rich.

The “War on Swine Flu” turned out to be like everything else governments lie about to steal power and money — a scam. But the fact that it was so universally hyped by governments and media — as if it was an exercise to psychologically prepare the masses — is not only suspicious, it’s is a very bad sign for what the future may hold when the next “crisis” comes around.

Here is a recent interview with Ron Paul in which he discusses many of these issues:

New York Town Considers Martial Law; Troops Patrol in Alabama

It seems that the public is increasingly being acclimated to the idea of martial law–military troops domestically deployed on the streets of the U.S. (in violation of posse comitatus) acting as enforcers of the law. Recently Brian Stratton, the mayor of Schenectady, New York, announced that he may declare martial law in the wake of numerous police suspensions and terminations that have left the local department shorthanded:

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Schenectady Police Chief Mark Chaires said, “This is unprecedented – all these officers getting in trouble at the same time for all these different reasons.

Five Schenectady police officers recently accused of everything from driving drunk to beating up a man are leading city officials to look at taking drastic action to fix a department tainted by the few who may have acted illegally, like Darren Lawrence and Michael Brown who are accused of driving while intoxicated…

Currently, officials are reviewing the legal options and planning to present a full report in early April – options like a consolidated county-wide police force or bringing in the State Police.

The mayor said there is another option – and that would be declaring martial law. The governor would have to declare it and then the National Guard would come in. The mayor said it’s more for a transition to a new police force if that were to happen.

He said, “It may be that as a stopgap measure, that you would need military forces – State Police, National Guard.”

The Houston Chronicle (along with CNS and others) is reporting that an inquiry is underway into the possible (probable) violation of federal laws when military personnel assisted during the aftermath of a tragic mass shooting in Samson, Alabama. While the intentions of the military personnel involved were probably good, this sets a dangerous precedent and erodes the barrier posse comitatus is meant to provide against the improper and potentially tyrannical use of military forces.

Also, on the heels of the absurd and slanderous MIAC report, a document has surfaced that outlines the U.S. Army Reserve’s monitoring of recent “End the Fed” rallies accross the country.

Most people in the military are good (they contributed more money to Ron Paul during the elections than any other candidate!). Most police officers are good too. But the events outlined above only contribute to the erosion of trust, privacy, and liberty in this nation that began gradually years ago and now is only accelerating. Let’s hope it doesn’t continue.

Glorifying and Worshipping the Police State

Ah, yes. Homeland Security U.S.A. is the latest in mind-numbing “reality” television and it looks to be little more than propaganda for the state. Sit back, relax, and be acclimated to the incremental loss of your liberties in the comfort of your own home!

Just watch — all of these people in uniform are so nice and good and official looking! There is nothing to fear, we should give them more power to “do their jobs”. Pay no attention to the 20,000+ troops being stationed in America or the warrantless checkpoints because it’s all “for your safety” of course. Everything changed a few years ago (don’t you know?) — posse comitatus and the Bill of Rights are obsolete these days.

20,000 More Troops For Martial Law?

For more background information on the threat of martial law in America click here.

Paul Joseph Watson writes the following at Infowars.com:

The Washington Post today reports on plans to station 20,000 more U.S. troops inside America for purposes of “domestic security” from September 2011, an expansion of Northcom’s militarization of the country in preparation for potential civil unrest following a total economic collapse or a mass terror attack.

“The U.S. military expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011 trained to help state and local officials respond to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe, according to Pentagon officials,” reports the Post.

“Domestic emergency deployment may be “just the first example of a series of expansions in presidential and military authority,” or even an increase in domestic surveillance, said Anna Christensen of the ACLU’s National Security Project. And Cato Vice President Gene Healy warned of “a creeping militarization” of homeland security.”

As Alex Jones exposed back in the late 1990’s, U.S. troops have been training for this eventuality for a considerable amount of time. During numerous urban warfare drills that Jones attended and reported on, troops were trained to raid, arrest and imprison U.S. citizens in detention camps as well as taking over public buildings and running checkpoints. During role playing exercises, actors playing prisoners would scream “I’m an American citizen, I have rights” as they were being dragged away by troops…

In the short term, the domestic deployment of troops is likely aimed at combating likely civil unrest that will ensue after a complete economic collapse followed by a devastating period of hyperinflation.

This warning was again echoed a few days ago in a leaked internal memo from Citibank.

“The world is not going back to normal after the magnitude of what they have done. When the dust settles this will either work, and the money they have pushed into the system will feed through into an inflation shock,” wrote Tom Fitzpatrick, Citibank’s chief technical strategist.

The memo predicts “depression, civil disorder and possibly wars” as a fallout from an economic collapse that many say is on the horizon.

Glenn Beck Talks Economic Breakdown, Martial Law

Here is Glenn Beck on October 13, 2008 with economist Peter Schiff.

Beck seems to finally be coming completely around to what many of us have known for quite a while. Along with making comparisons between where the U.S. is headed and the Weimar Republic, they also discuss (briefly) the likelihood of a conspiracy for an eventual global currency and the possibility of martial law in the the streets of America:
