Should Martial Law be Imposed as Rosie Insists?

One of the unique things about western society, western democracies, and our own representative republic, is the peaceful transition of power.

Many nations have never known such a thing, as power is simple bequeathed from one family member to another, as in Syria or North Korea. It may also be obtained by coup, military or otherwise. But our system is relatively new and atypical.

We fight it out for months at time – but when it’s finally over, a winner is declared and life goes on. Sure, the losers can and do cry crocodile tears from time to time, but at the end of the day, the politically vanquished peacefully give way to the victor(s), as will occur on Friday.

Sometime between 11 AM and 2 PM, Donald Trump and Mike Pence will take the Oath of Office and be sworn in as the next President and Vice President of the United States.

That is unless current President Barack Obama declares martial law and suspends the transfer of power. No really – some are suggested that this could happen, or should, at least according to one in particular. read more

Selective Service … What’s the Endgame

For the past couple of years, certainly since the tragic incident of Obama’s reelection, there have been more than a few conspiracy theories floated to explain his lawless behavior.

He’s a Muslim and is purposely allowing the Brotherhood to infiltrate the government.

Another one is that he wants to purposely overwhelm and collapse the financial system to allow for full central control.

Yet another: he will decree amnesty and citizenship for all illegals, giving Democrats a permanent majority.

He will create such unrest, that the people will rise up in armed revolt, thus allowing him to invoke martial law and suspend the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, passed to prevent U.S. military personnel from acting as law enforcement agents on U.S. soil, for as long as he deems necessary.

Now some of these are implausible, most unlikely and just five or so years ago, I would have thought all to be impossible. But witnessing what this president and his people have already done, it seems the sky’s the limit on conspiracy theories.

It’s the last one I mentioned – the martial law theory – that just keeps coming up. I’ve written about it before, and yes it sounds absurd, but I just can’t seem to shake it.

I know what you’re thinking. This guy really does wear a tinfoil hat. I agree. I sound crazy – believe me – I don’t like it either, but hear me out. read more
