Martial Law , Pork and...more Pork

As the once and former free citizens of the united States of America – the government of, for, and by the people - we have ourselves quite a dilemma. And the biggest and most immediate problem we face is that the citizenry remains stupid, with heads in the sand, re-educated, and media sheep. What to do…what to do…

As I try to read all the watchdog literature that time affords, I am comforted by the willingness, effort, and research of those in the know and willing to act. But I also realize that the problems we face grow larger and more sophisticated on a daily basis, and that the job of simply trying to keep up with the political deception, missions, and disinformation is beyond monumental. And, of course, I also realize that the scope, financial resources, and strength of those missions are beyond historical compare. What a force, people. What a historical world-wide force to be reckoned with, and what an ineffective and largely ignored force the world’s majority has become.

The question that the watchdogs are asked on a daily basis is, “What can we do?’ Ask any watchdog this question, and you will get any number of suggestions - keeping in mind that watchdogs are simply people like all people. They just watch less tell-a-vision and perhaps tend to question blind authority more than most. However, there are no easy, simple, or single answers to securing freedom, for slavery is complex politics. And masterminded slavery is pathological greed in every way, shape, form, and century. This is an important consideration.

What we are dealing with are pathological missions, plans, and intentions – very patient and sophisticated pathological strategies that have been put into place decade after decade and, in truth, century after century....

....The American people cannot be designated as “dissidents’ simply because they are constitutionally guaranteed American people. However, this can occur if operating under Military Law, and particularly Martial Law, which suspends the constitutional law of the nation.

The stage has been set for Martial Law. Many Executive Orders have defined and guaranteed absolute dictatorial powers of Martial Law (refer to all orders gathered into Executive Order 12919). Practicing for this declaration has been an on-going process for several decades, with the paramilitary face in full view since 9-11. We continue to be desensitized by homeland military presence, public view of military issue weapons, black suits, international forces, and commands to disarm. This is not a good sign. And hundreds of millions of dollars have been awarded for construction of new civilian labor camps on American soil. This is a confirming sign that war powers are in place on the “homeland’ – highly and strategically funded and enacted war powers.

All the President’s Secrets

[Aziz]Huq, who directs the liberty and national security project at the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University’s School of Law, explained that Bush’s abuses of power go beyond past presidents’ decisions to ignore in times of crisis the traditional checks-and-balances structure of the government’s three branches. Unlike, for example, President Lincoln’s suspension of the writ of habeas corpus during the Civil War, Bush’s violations of the law are conducted wholly in secret and are not linked to an emergency that has an identifiable end-point. read the rest...

It looks like somebody is setting the table, and in an era of ever-increasing pork-barrel spending, our Congressmen are once again allowing this sitting President of the United States to usurp our liberties.

Did somebody say, Martial Law Military Dictatorship? Munch, munch, slurp.

Hey Bushy, that's not fair - we were just about to have dessert. Burrrrp. S'cuse me, I mean, could somebody please pass the bar-b-que sauce...?
