I believe that Obama will conduct a military operation on American soil, complete with ground assault troops and air support on multiple "militia" compounds throughout the country.
He will have reams of emails and phone taps documenting an imminent attack that was thwarted in the nick of time.
He will reluctantly postpone the national elections until order is restored.
In the meantime, the Internet will go dark, in the interests of national security.
He will try some kind of Reichstag Fire, but I am counting on Bibi Netanyahu, and the Mossad, to do whatever they have to do to make sure that Malcolm X Jr. does not get re-elected!
I don’t expect martial law. I do expect another October Surprise just like the manufactured economic crisis of the 2008 election. It will be a lie, the lie will be obvious, and the media will play defense for Obama so that distracted voters don’t figure it out. My guess is that they will announce an economic “emergency” that requires something somewhat bigger than Stimulus and TARP combined or the sky will fall. It may be related to Europe, perhaps combined with the banking/finance sector again.
Off topic but you and I have the same sign up date.!
I don’t think, as incompetent as he is, that he would be so unsophisticated about it. I think he has been trying to scare up a “militia” bogeyman, but hasn’t found any that spark enough public interest to serve his purposes yet.
I wouldn’t put it past him to have some of the ever-present fed informants in those groups try to stir up some kind of attack or botched hit attempt on him, just to get public support for a more general crackdown. I just hope nobody is fool enough to take that bait.
He would be arrested within five minutes of such an announcement.
Black mayhem in the streets comes to mind. After all he his most black militants revved up and feeling they are immune to any prosecution.
Yeah, my bet is on the Mossad already having “the goods” on EmpERROR Zero.
He will have some minor surprises this time, but any fireworks will be at the end of the second term, if he gets re-elected. And it won’t be to stay in power, but he could create a crisis in order to justify the emergency implementation of the rest of his laundry list before he goes.
Obama doesn’t need a crisis in order to declare martial law. He can do it because he wants to, and the Supreme Court will make it law. If you don’t like it, Obama can have you arrested, and held indefinitely because he wants to. You can’t do anything about it. This is America buddy, and Obama owns it.

That’s what the libs said about Reagan, Bush 1 and 2. And the conservatives said it about Clinton.
Who will issue that order? The District of Columbia US Attorney that refused to prosecute Holder before he even got the contempt citation in his hands?
If the sun comes up, Martial Law
Exactly. What makes you think he thinks he needs a reason?? !! ??
I would not put anything past Dumbo. He’s already shown us that he will ignore any law that he doesn’t like.
and who will carry out an order, if issued?
There’s an earthquake coming that will total a large city. The quake will be so big, two other large cities will also be impacted. That should give him excuse enough.
