Skip to comments.Testing the First Amendment: Is Obama pushing martial law?
Posted on 03/18/2012 3:51:43 PM PDT by WriteStuff
The fact that this has gone viral since it was released, and that those whove commented on it all believe this is nothing less than martial law under a more politically-correct name, is in itself significant reason to appropriately react. Could this be the beginning of martial law in America? Unless the President is clairvoyant and hes doing this in reaction to some future event that only he sees in his minds eye an event some argue hes hoping to instigate the Constitutional crisis this raises is frightening.

If this was done by W, it would be considered another wonderful and glorious patriotic act.
Plenty of us knew that the Patriot Act was a mistake. Homeland Security was never implemented in a way justified by the Constitution. The feds tried to take away our freedom and they hoped that we would feel safer because of it.
The federales had every ambition of depriving illegal aliens and enemy aliens of their opportunity of depriving US of our rights.
Yes it is and the part of our communists black Muslim effort to become dictator. And the foundation is growing.
You’re right. Only problem is now we have a Marxist Muslim gay illegal alien for president.
Well all the freepers who can’t decide whether they will be able to pull the lever for Romney in Nov may not have to make that decision after all. May not be any elections. Alan Keyes predicted this at the time of Obama’s election. The Marxist takeover is moving along on schedule.
I’m still waiting for the GOP to save us. (sarc)
I do not think that these acts done by any president could be looked upon as glorious as we are loosing our freedoms one by one and are mostly just yawning.
Freedom of speech, assembly, religion....life and death are up to bat here. Not a joke. Not paranoia. This is for real. We are facing a communist form of government where the state controls all and our constitution is being shredded and we are letting it happen.
Do you want to live under socialism? I don’t. I hold some politically incorrect (moral) views for which I may have to pay a dear price. Our country is not what it was! Please wake up!
By you, for sure.
Zer0's a 'little Mugabe' dictator; pure and simple. Constitution be damned, Bill of Rights be damned, Congress be damned.
It's and Executive Order for Emergency Communism.
Certainly Obama doesn’t let the Constitution bother him.
This is not his first act against the Constitution.
This will not be the first time the Congress ignores his unConstitutional acts.
Truman once had a do-nothing Congress, but they were great compared to this pack of perk eaters.All this bunch cares about is staying in office. There aren’t 20 Patriots in the whole pack.——from either party.
Between my opinion and your misunderstanding of my opinion there is a vast sar-chasm.
So how come we don’t see any media coverage of this or politicians shouting foul?
Because we already live in a dictatorship? Now it is in writing.
This president and Congress are the unfounding fathers and mothers of Africa.
“We’re here to help you; Mission creep” never ends well for the American people. Social Security, Medicare, EPA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, TSA, 0bamacare (includes student loans), etc.
I told my friends and family when he was elected that I didn’t think he ever intended to leave. Too many things have pointed to that mindset with him. He is too arrogant and has never intended to give up the power and money they are enjoying now.
Congressmen should be REMOVED FROM OFFICE for Derelection of Duty, if they authorize funding for these schemes that are Legislation without Congressional Appropriation. There's NO WAY these Dictates from The Messiah should be allowed to be funded, and "National Defense" has NOTHING to do with this one!
We’re in a Marxist dominated Oligarchy.
The American Nomenclatura is in place.
Congress will make noises about all this but they won’t cross the line because their families have been threatened.
Now it’s all mostly for show.
Do you really think that the US will ever move more left than Western Europe? Technically Western Europe is not socialist because the means of production is mostly privately held.
Do you think that somehow in the US the powers that be are going to try to turn all of the corporations into government agencies? Do you think they even want to?
Socialism is not the real enemy. The real enemy is, and has always been, oligarchy. The good news about the oligarchy here in the US is that it is not completely based on bloodlines: any one of us, theoretically, can become one of the oligarchs. Also, there seems to be more turnover among our oligarchs than in such times/places as Rome, various Holy Roman Empires, various European Kingdoms/Empires, Nazi Germany, Tzarist Russia, Communist Russia, Putin's Russia, Communist China, Cuba, Ho Chi Minh's Vietnam, Pol Pot's Cambodia, Venezuela, etc.
Do you really think that Stalin or Lenin really believed in Communism? Or that Mao did? They were scumbag crony capitalists who were just more brutal in maintaining their monopolies than Government Electric, Government Motors, or Government Sachs.
Certainly the governments of Western Europe, and our own US government, subject our corporations to a myriad of taxes and regulations. Certainly this limits what they can do. But do they respond by ousting the government? No. They just bribe officials to make the taxes and regulations a bit less onerous for them, and a bit more onerous for their competition.
I work for a major corporation which most Americans would consider to be a hotbed of right-wing anti-Socialism. And yet our leaders are proud of their affirmative action programs, their LGBT seal-of-approval, their environmental advocacy, etc.
My company doesn't want the US government to get smaller. They need all those government contracts to survive. They thrilled at the creation of the Dept. of Homeland Security. They love the fact that the US government is going to need all sorts of new technology to keep track of enemies abroad and of our own citizens at home.
Like all good capitalists, they want to privatize the profits and socialize the costs.
Their shareholders agree.
As do their knowing or ideologically brainwashed shills on FR.
Between your understanding of freepers, who you accused of being for a Marxist dictatorship, and reality is way off too, bud. Screw you.
I agree, but then you and I seem to be in the minority here on FR.
I am continuously reminded here on FR that the Muslim threat is ever-present. They will never stop in their hopes of creating a worldwide Caliphate under Sharia Law. A world where all Christians will be reduced to dhimmi-tude.
So obviously it's a good thing that Obama renewed this EO ... isn't it?
Reading skills. Sense of humor. Sense of history.
All good things, and highly recommended.
Dry up junior.
Reps and Senators sit back and enjoy their perks as they slough off lawmaking to Obama, his secretaries and czars. Why offer resistance? It will only anger some constituents and all of the local media.
Obama is a direct assault on every American. Where are the articles of impeachment?
THANK YOU SARA
MY THOUGHTS AS WELL
AND TO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA,,,TWO LETTER COMMENT.
That's a new one.
I can understand oligarchs like Stalin and Mao who presented themselves as Marxists/Communists as a way of getting the people to accept their horrible fates.
But oligarchs who actually believe in Marxism when Marxism makes the bold claim that oligarchies will fade away? Are we still in the "dictatorship of the proletariat" phase? But wasn't that Lenin's cute addition to Marxist theory? And didn't that whole "dictatorship of the proletariat" thing go bust a few years back?
Obama is an oligarch plain and simple. No need for him to believe in Marxist theory when he's sipping Pina Colada's poolside in Hawaii, or teeing up a golf ball at Congressional.
Your logic seems to be somewhat lacking. My argument is that there is no reason to “renew”, meaning in this case, expand overbearing government intrusion on our lives and decisions, let alone personal property.
Do you convince many people by agreeing with them and then trying to tell them they agree with you?
Butt and I do mean Butt. W DIDN’T DO IT!
end of argument. you lost. good day sir.
Obama is an oligarch plain and simple. No need for him to believe in Marxist theory when he’s sipping Pina Colada’s poolside in Hawaii, or teeing up a golf ball at Congressional.
Thanks for reinforcing my point. And I said Marxist “dominated”.
Sec. 308. Government-Owned Equipment. The head of each agency engaged in procurement for the national defense is delegated the authority of the President under section 303(e) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2093(e), to:
(a) procure and install additional equipment, facilities, processes, or improvements to plants, factories, and other industrial facilities owned by the Federal Government and to procure and install Government owned equipment in plants, factories, or other industrial facilities owned by private persons;
(b) provide for the modification or expansion of privately owned facilities, including the modification or improvement of production processes, when taking actions under sections 301, 302, or 303 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2091, 2092, 2093; and
(c) sell or otherwise transfer equipment owned by the Federal Government and installed under section 303(e) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2093(e), to the owners of such plants, factories, or other industrial facilities.
This is the nazification of the industrial base. Obama can take over any business anytime for anyreason. Goodbye private property.
Even the Nazis paid their experts. What is wrong with this pack of thieves?
I knew it when he was elected. Obama is going to go all Hugo Chavez on us.
He lost congress and isn’t likely to get it back and he’s likely to lose the upcoming election.
BUT*** Obama is on an Alinski-ite mission. he will find an excuse to invoke this order and suspend the constitution.
I’m betting his excuse will be an attack on Iran.
I hope he does it. This death from a thousand cuts is killing me. Lets see what Congress and SCOTUS is all about.
Ben Franklin warned us of this over 200 years ago.
