The MSM is back to musings of “Martial Law”, and this time they’re talking about “secret” units some 10,000 strong ready to drop in and secure Washington or something…
(by Half Dollar) They’d love a Federal Police Force akin to the State Highway Patrol, only better equipped, totally free from any liability, and with a license to be as ruthless as one so desires.
They’d also love the US military patrolling the streets of the United States.
On that note, it will be difficult and, well, awkward, when we bring the troops home.
Come home they will, however, because it is the fall of empire we’re talking about.
But I digress.
The MSM is at it again, stoking the martial law fires.
Here’s the latest, from Zero Hedge, and it’s chock-full of Black Hawk helicopters and secret missions (here’s the first paragragph)
Ever since governors started calling up national guard units last month, the Pentagon has insisted that the soldiers remain firmly under the command of the governors that called them up, and that the Pentagon isn’t using the troops to plan for any federal ‘secret missions’ or ‘martial law’, should the crisis spiral out of control and threaten ‘continuity of government’.
For those how don’t know, Zero Hedge is all-in on Trump 2020, and they now only tow the official Trump party line, so this comes as no surprise.
Regardless, we’ve had a lot to say about this, from somebody who’s actually been in the United States Army, including disseminating information about why Zero Hedge is totally not even getting the point of all of this because of, well, this:
The only thing that’s true about what’s coming is that we won’t be told the truth.
Which is kind of why I stopped “worrying” about Martial Law, so to say, for lack of a better word for the feeling and a better term for the operation.
Here’s some of our first in-depth analysis of the actual plans for Martial Law as it relates to this Covid-19 pandemic:
What was said back in mid-February is equally valid today, so please check that article out if you have not already.
Here’s more about those plans and more, for the visual learners out there:
Finally, if you’ve read through the entire Zero Hedge article linked above, you will come across stuff like “Title 32” and “Title 10”.
Indeed, check out all of our Martial Law archives right here.
The bottom line?
The Federal Government will do what it wants to, when it wants to.
Call it what you want.
I think, however, as far as the United States military goes, they’ll be busy just trying to maintain a standing, fighting force.
You don’t “bring the troops home” after decades of war and just have them instantly and completely shift into Garrison life which morphs into Martial Law.
Just like when somebody or some thing finally gives the word to “re-open”, Mains Street will not magically Spring to life as if it had not even skipped a beat.
Said differently, the US Military will have big enough problems of their own, taking care of their own, all the while remaining a standing, fighting force for the defense of the United States.
Will “elite paratroopers” or whatever the MSM is calling them be jumping into neighborhoods and rappelling into bedroom windows, in full 1984 glory?
I doubt it.
