It is true, not all of Americans were put under Martial law. Yet. But some Americans were. Your Representatives.
According to news reports, Martial Law was clamped on the Members of the House of Representatives. They were being pressed to vote on the bill to stem the financial crisis in America. The dangerous thing about the use of martial law in this instance, is that your representatives are being coerced to a vote on the bill before they had a reasonable chance to read through it, which is over 400 pages long. Not only are they being denied a reasonable chance to go through the bill before a vote, the American People cannot have a chance to read through it either. That goes for journalists as well. In essence, the powers that be, are trying to pass this bill in a sneaky, despicable manner. Kind of reminds me of the way the Federal Reserve Act was passed back in 1913, just before the Christmas holiday when most of the government representatives were either on vacation or running to get home. That vote too, passed like a thief in the night.
Fast forward to Sept./Oct. 2008 and we are seeing another, 'Use any trick, but get the darned bill signed and passed'.
This is what 'Martial Law' means regarding the present bill to bail out Wall Street... "Under this [Martial Law] procedure, longstanding House rules that require at least one day between the unveiling of significant legislation and the House floor vote on that legislation are swept away. Instead, under 'martial law', the Leadership can file legislation with hundreds of pages of fine print and move immediately to debate and vote on it, before Members of Congress, the media, or the public have an opportunity to understand fully what provisions have been altered or inserted in the legislation behind closed doors. This is the procedure the Leadership hopes to use today to muscle through these bills."
And from this news piece:
"Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) reports from the floor of the House that the Republicans have been cut out of the process and called unpatriotic for not blindly supporting the fraudulent bailout. He says the only debate has been about what talking points to use on the American people. The most ominous revelation is when he claims the Speaker has declared martial law."
"I have been thrown out of more meetings in this capital in the last 24 hours than I ever thought possible, as a duly elected representative of 825,000 citizens of north Texas." Said Congressman Burgess.
Burgess asks the Speaker of the House to post the bailout bill on the internet for at least 24 hours instead of passing the largest piece of legislation in US financial history in the "dark of night."
The most frightening part of Rep. Burgess' one-minute floor speech is when he says, "Mr. Speaker I understand we are under Martial Law as declared by the speaker last night."
Also, did you all see this article from Reuters? "China Banks Told to Halt Lending to US Banks-SCMP" Alas, the once great America is spiralling down, perhaps never to be the great power it was ever again.
As for your possible next president, Barack Obama, did you know that he has, in the spirit of 'freedom', formed a professional gang of sherriffs and prosecutors to hunt you down if you state 'misleading' things about him, like that he is a Muslim? (According to Islamic Law, he takes the religion of his father. But don't bring it up, or you might be brought up on charges [wink]). Well, if Obama doesn't like what you say about him, he just may sic his hounds on you. However, lest you think he is a fascist, he calls his pack of wolves by a 'nice' cosmetic name, ....'TheTruth Squad'. See this 2 minute video below.
Here's another thing to scare you about your freedoms under an Obama presidency: Obama doesn't want you listening to conservative talk radio. A quote I found says he stated in a speech, "The one thing that I want to insist on is that, as I travel around the country, the American people are a decent people. Now they get confused sometimes. You know, they listen to the wrong talk radio shows or watch the wrong TV networks, um, but they're, they're basically decent, they're basically sound." - Barack Hussein Obama So, better not listen to Arutz Sheva either. He may send his Truth Squad on you.
