Martial law is perhaps the ultimate stomping of freedom Plus Bush administration’s long record of Posse Comitatus violations is highlighted today!

The man who wants to be a Dictator!

In light of the numerous events occurring so rapidly now that Bush's time is running short as we said it would I want to reiterate something I wrote 6 months ago then post today's proof we are dead on and the worst is yet to come. Stay together! Anyway Martial law is perhaps the ultimate stomping of freedom. And yet, on September 30, 2006, Congress passed a provision in a 591-page bill that will make it easy for President Bush to impose martial law in response to a terrorist “incident.” It also empowers him to effectively declare martial law in response to what he or other federal officials label a shortfall of “public order” – whatever that means. to me it is public outcry to what our so called leader is doing to our country and the world!

Section 1076 is more ominous in light of the Bush administration’s long record of Posse Comitatus violations. Since 2001, the Bush administration has accelerated a trend of using the military as a tool in the nation’s domestic affairs. Section 1076 of the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act (Public Law 109-364) unnecessarily expanded the President's authority to federalize the National Guard during certain emergencies and disasters only he as the Decider can declare. Section 1076 concern!

From its support of the Total Information Awareness surveillance vacuum cleaner, to its use of Pentagon spy planes during the Washington-area sniper shootings in 2002, to the Pentagon’s seizures of Americans’ financial and other private information without a warrant, the Bush administration has not hesitated to use military force and intimidation at home whenever convenient. And Americans may have little or no idea of how far the military has actually gone on the home front, given the Bush team’s obsessive secrecy.

That is bad enough but I am starting to believe the military Industrial complex is the power behind the right! The Military-Industrial Complex: In his prophetic “Farewell Address” of 1961, President Eisenhower warned the nation about the serious threat that its “unwarranted influence” posed to the Republic. (1) Nick Turse, in his book, “The Complex: How The Military Invades Our Everyday Lives,” describes the current situation: “Just like the fictional ‘Matrix,’ the Complex is nearly everywhere and involved in almost everything and very few people aren’t plugged into it in some way, shape or form. Above all...most people are hardly aware that this ‘REAL MATRIX’ even exist.”

Turse says that the Complex reaches “deeper into American lives...than Eisenhower could ever have imagined.” For example, in 1961, the Pentagon was spending about $23 billion per year on weapons “and other military goods. Today, that would equal about $200 billion in the budget. [But], in 2007, the Department of Defense’s stated budget was $439 billion. Counting the costs of its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the numbers jump to $600 billion. Factoring in all the many related activities carried out by other agencies, actual U.S. national security spending is NEARLY $1 TRILLION PER YEAR.” In 1970, there were about 22,000 prime contractors doing business with the U.S. department of Defense (DoD). In 2008, Turse writes: “The number of prime contractors tops 47,000 with subcontractors reaching WELL OVER THE 100,000 MARK, making for ONE MASSIVE CONGLOMERATE touching nearly every sector of society.”

Today's telling events! U.S. to sell $6.4 billion in weapons to Taiwan

We just made another nuclear deal with India and U.N. raises Islamabad security level

explosion kills soldiers in Lebanon

Dozens killed Baghdad in Ramadan's deadliest day

Battle in Iraq kills 15 Turkish soldiers

Plans shelved to put US diplomats in Iran

And the kicker with Bush we can't trust this deploying army combat units in America

The Bankrupting of America is almost complete and As you know I am very concerned about Bush lifting Posse Comitatus and declaring martial law. However I now firmly believe that Declaring martial law will not happen under Bush but it will under President McCain. * Yhep he is the next heir to the throne! The right has built the new phony American hero and he will get in somehow. Again, whoever tries to speak the truth about him will be labeled as anti military, unpatriotic, un-American, you name it. He will get in one way or the other and he will be a lot worse than Bush if you can imagine that. People talk about his temper but just watch how ruthless McCain can be!

you forgot all of the 'private contractors'- you know, the corporate mercenary armies in america and around the world. the corps have taken the trillion dollar profits and built their own army at the expense of the american armed forces. i would say that puts the ball in their court. but they have to pay them- citizens fight for no other reason than to be free.

Excellent Betmo!
I did include that and I just want to show you this near the bottom of this post!
In 1970, there were about 22,000 prime contractors doing business with the U.S. department of Defense (DoD). In 2008, Turse writes: “The number of prime contractors tops 47,000 with subcontractors reaching WELL OVER THE 100,000 MARK, making for ONE MASSIVE CONGLOMERATE touching nearly every sector of society.”

There is no shortage of people who are evil and venal enough to subjegate and kill their fellow-Americans for filthy lucre. Check out any of the many COPS and SWAT shows on TV.

Posse Comitatus is already on the slab in the morgue.

I do not think McCain will be the next president... Bush has screwed up so much and the economy will not improve any time soon. I think that people are going to reject Plain as the next president once they truly think about McCain's age, (and get a closer look at their shrinking 401ks.)

Why are both McCain and Obama spending a lot of time at home now on weekends? Do they know something we don't know, like the way the election is going and that it is a done deal?

an average patriot said...

I know! Watching the market and having called this years ago seeing this all come to a head and knowing what it means is very sobering! Hope all is well Bud!

an average patriot said...

I want to hope you are right Maria! McCain is home getting prepared for the next debate because it is so critical more so to him than Obama. I hope he burns himself. I wonder which of his 10 houses he is in? I wasn't aware that Obama was home too but I did know he too was boning up. Watching the market today I am convinced I have been dead on with everything!

Snave said...

With every day that passes, it becomes more apparent that McCain is not likely to be elected our next president. As that becomes more apparent to the powers that be, I think the chances increase that something drastic could be in the works for keeping those powers that be in power... for a long time.

I am becoming more confident that Obama will be elected. I am less confident that he will be allowed to take the Oath of Office in January.

You got it! They are going to steal this one way or the other. The question is how are they going to steal this one? McPalin is already a given.
If somehow Obama does slip through the only question is what catastrophe are they going to create next? Bush has to January 20th to declare Martial Law! Remember, they killed MLK,RFK,JFK, there is now way they are going to let Obama happen.
The Presidency has to much power to allow in Dem hands and the right has gone to far with their fascist agenda and bankrupting of our America to emplace their version!
