Americans are increasing ready to cast out the band of traitors and thieves from Washington, but few realize the federal government is prepared to combat anticipated uprisings with military force.
News of citizens’ growing discontent has most recently come from a former Democrat activist now working for Rasmussen, a leading Democrat pollster. SOURCE
Rasmussen pollster Pat Caddell confirmed August 7, 2011 the mood in America is strongly anti-government. That jibes with his statement last November that “a sea of anger is churning” amongst Americans who “want to take their country back” and the nation stood on the brink of a “pre-revolutionary moment.”
Faith in the federal government is plummeting with 83 to 94 percent of Americans believing Congress is failing or America is on the wrong path. As a result, many Americans appear ready to embrace a rising up against the government, according to Rasmussen and Caddell. The reasons are the ailing economy, prolific government spending and lack of jobs, much as in the Middle East, France, Spain, Greece, Italy and most recently London.
What most Americans don’t realize, however, is the government has already taken steps to preserve itself at the expense of the safety and protection of its citizens. Should street violence rise to the levels in other riot-torn nations, U.S. troops are prepared to deal with the crisis. If everything goes according to federal government schemers’ plans, U.S. combat troops will take over everything in America, from federal and state government to local law enforcement. This in spite of laws such as Posse Comitatus and Habeus Corpus, which are designed to protect citizens from the power of the government.
Warning messages about possible martial law and military takeover of civilian law-enforcement have been given for years. Most have been ignored.
The earliest warnings came, of course, from our Founding Fathers, many of whom spoke strongly against a standing army. One of those was the Declaration of Independence signer and fifth Vice President of the United States Elbridge Gerry who said: “What, sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty. Whenever governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army on their ruins.”
The most chilling statements against a standing army came from an anti-Federalist writing as Brutus who said if the people have “no confidence in their legislature, suspect them of ambitious views, be jealous of every measure they adopt, and will not support the laws they pass,” then the government will be “nerveless and inefficient, and no way will be left to render it otherwise, but by establishing an armed force to execute the laws at the point of the bayonet — a government of all others the most to be dreaded.”
Other warnings came later. Most recently, the American South experienced first-hand the danger of a standing army when Union Soldiers became an army of occupation. That occupation led directly to passage of the Posse Comitatus law*, which was championed by far-sighted Southern lawmakers in 1878. “They had experienced a fifteen year military occupation by the US Army in post-Civil War law enforcement. They understood the heel of a jackboot.”
*In a nutshell, this act bans the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines from participating in arrests, searches, seizure of evidence and other police-type activity on U.S. soil. The Coast Guard and National Guard troops under the control of state governors are excluded from the act.
The stage is set and the actors are primed to play their parts. Either a dictatorial federal government will declare martial law, turn our standing army against the people and take all power for once and forever, or the people will prevail. All it will take for the president (Obama) to assume dictatorial powers is the total disarmament of the citizens and a presidential declaration of an extreme emergency to start the revolution. Be prepared people.
