Martial law is the system of rules that takes effect when the military takes control of the normal administration of justice.
Martial law is sometimes imposed during wars or occupations in the absence of any other civil government. Examples of this form of military rule include Germany and Japan after World War II or the American South during the early stages of Reconstruction. In addition, it is used by governments to enforce their rule; for example, after a coup d'état (Thailand 2006), when threatened by popular protests (Tiananmen Square protests of 1989), or to suppress the opposition (Poland 1981). Another example would be The October Crisis which took place in Canada in October of 1970. Martial law can also be declared in cases of major natural disasters; however most countries use a different legal construct, such as a "state of emergency".
In many countries martial law imposes particular rules, one of which is curfew. Often, under this system, the administration of justice is left to a military tribunal, called a court-martial. The suspension of habeas corpus is likely to occur.
The plans to implement martial law in America have been taking shape for decades, hidden behind "Continuity of Government" contingency planning. Now, with public outcry over the banker bailout bill at fever pitch, all of the pieces are in place for the U.S. Army to start policing American citizens.
Martial law is possible in the US. The NWO would just need 1 more event like 911 now that the new laws are in place. News 12 report about the situation also gives you a peek into the gun confiscation that happened in New Orleans after the hurricane.
The martial law concept in the U.S. is closely tied with the right of habeas corpus, which is in essence the right to a hearing on lawful imprisonment, or more broadly, the supervision of law enforcement by the judiciary. The ability to suspend habeas corpus is often equated with martial law. Article 1, Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution states, "The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion, the public Safety may require it."
In United States law, martial law is limited by several court decisions that were handed down between the American Civil War and World War II. In 1878, Congress passed the Posse Comitatus Act, which forbids military involvement in domestic law enforcement without congressional approval. On October 1, 2002 United States Northern Command was established to provide command and control of Department of Defense homeland defense efforts and to coordinate defense support of civil authorities.
President Bush, without so much as issuing a press statement, signed a directive that granted near dictatorial powers to the office of the president in the event of a national emergency declared by the president. Basically Martial Law.
The "National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive" NSPD-51, loosely defines "catastrophic emergency" as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions."
When the President determines a catastrophic emergency has occurred, the President can take over all government functions and direct all private sector activities to ensure we will emerge from the emergency with an "enduring constitutional government."
Translated into layman's terms, when the President determines a national emergency has occurred, the President can declare to the office of the presidency powers usually assumed by dictators to direct any and all government and business activities until the emergency is declared over. Including cancelling the Presidential Election.
This is what this world is coming to. They want to de arm the population. I feel this will be the biggest reason for the government to issue full order of Martial Law due to civilians not wanting to give up their guns. These areas were not flooded and they were of the richest areas. Why would the military remove them of their weapons and evacuate them from dry land after the storm? Doesn't make sense to me!!
This female protester gets struck by the officer so she asks him to do it again and he floors her with a shotgun to the chest. After the lady catches her breath she is giving an interview to a private media source when she is hauled away by 5 police men. For What? Getting assaulted and telling the media ? It just goes to show you how safe you are with the police. Serve and protect.... More like Punish and Enslave.
In Denver a Peacefull demonstration turns into what would be the beginning of a roundup situation. The protestors start marching tword the building and the police tell them to get back. At this point the Protestors move back as instructed. The Police ( Now all in black, what happened to blue and white? ) Faces covered.... Start Chasing the protestors. The police round them up and surround 2000 people on all 3 sides and hold them for 2 hours while continuing to try to provoke the people for arrest!
NORTH CAROLINA: Sixteen-year-old Ashton Lundeby's bedroom in his mother's Granville County home is nothing, if not patriotic. Images of American flags are everywhere on the bed, on the floor, on the wall.
But according to the United States government, the tenth-grade home-schooler is being held on a criminal complaint that he made a bomb threat from his home on the night of Feb. 15.
According to Annette Lundeby of Oxford, N.C., armed FBI agents and local police stormed her home around 10 p.m. on March 5, looking for her son, Ashton. The officers presented a federal search warrant and seized the tenth-grader's computer, cell phone and bank statements.
Alex Jones has been doing this research and Waking up America since 2000. A lot of the references in this site are here today because of his efforts. I give him All the props in the world for putting his neck on the line to get ALL THE DOCUMENTATION from his connections and staff of researchers. This Video is 2 hours but it explains everything in detail about the battle for America. This has amazing video of Police and foreign military on US soil rounding up civilians. Most screaming for food and help and understanding as they keep them in line and do building searches and drills. DISTURBING! MUST WATCH if you really want to see what they are training for.
