GOP Congressman: Democrats Might Declare Martial Law

By
Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 8:11 am

Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.), who apologized shortly after the 2008 election for comparing President Obama to Adolf Hitler, is going back to that well. The Athens Banner-Herald reports on a town hall meeting where Broun called Democratic health care reform plans “a stinking, rotten fish.”

He also spoke of a “socialistic elite” – Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid – who might use a pandemic disease or natural disaster as an excuse to declare martial law.

“They’re trying to develop an environment where they can take over,” he said. “We’ve seen that historically.”

In Broun’s defense, he might be talking about some other, non-Germany nation that hurtled into fascism during a manufactured crisis.

Yes, martial law might be imposed by the Dems, but only on GOP congressmen. Which I think everyone would agree is the right and humane thing to do.

“We've seen that historically”

Yeah. Remember when we saw an administration use a terrorist attack to start illegally spying on US Citizens?

As an aside, if Socialism is all about leveling the playing field and making everyone equal, and taking from elites to give to non-elites, why would elites like Obama, Pelosi, and Reid be so interested in Socialism? You've gotta love Republicans' ability to completely eschew internal consistency.

Obviously Rep. Paul Broun is correct, but he's only telling part of the picture. The foundations of martial law and shredding of our constitutional protections were built with the help of BOTH parties with the satanic “patriot” acts and military commissions acts were pulled out of a drawer after 9/11 and passed. The entity calling itself the federal “government” has been a full blown tyranny ever since F.D.R. stole our gold in 1933, came for our guns in 1934, and established concentration camps. Since then, BOTH parties have helped to dismantle our constitutional protections. Thank God that the 1994 federal gun ban expired but we are in grave danger because of these various “patriot” acts. Every day, I'm reading about AMERICAN CITIZENS being arrested as “terror suspects” and supposedly “plotting jihad.” The media and the public ignore that these “suspects” have not committed a single crime whatsoever. The federal “government” is testing the waters. They've already made their power grabs. Now they're waiting for opportunities to USE these illegal powers. The bulk of these illegal powers, and ACTUAL martial law won't come until WWIII. This is the best analysis of this issue around: http://worldaffairsbrief.com/keytopics/threats….

So what can we do? Continue to demand the repeal of the “patriot” acts. Purchase military style firearms. Re-constitute your local militia units. If the next “katrina” happens in your city, be prepared to encounter thugs from all over the country who don't care one whit about your rights. If they try to take your property, you can't be afraid to defend it.

How is any (supposed) “manufactured crisis” any different from the WMD fabrication? Is it because the GOP taking over, in an otherwise identical fashion, is supposedly more acceptable? Or is it because taking over on our own soil is more deplorable than taking over someone elses?

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
