“A dictatorship was impossible in our Republic because power was widely diffused. Today, as we approach Democratic Socialism, all power is being centralized at the apex of the executive branch of the federal government. This concentration of power makes a dictatorship inevitable.”
(Gary Allen, “None Dare Call it Conspiracy,” page 34)
The aforementioned quote and book were written in 1971. Good Day to you, SHTF readers. This article is going to mention some of the “finer points” utilized by the executive branch (Obama) toward the totalitarian end-state he desires. The end state of slavery he erroneously (and intentionally) labels a “fundamental transformation.” Keep these points in mind, as we mentioned in the last article that Jade Helm is (as you readers also agree) a precursor for some unknown nefarious act to take place in the near future.
The Executive Order is a presidential directive that holds the force of law once it is published in the Federal Register. Now the United States has been continuously placed in a “state of emergency” since 1933. The War and Emergency Powers Act of 1933 has enabled all successive presidents to usurp powers normally designated to the legislative branch. Abraham Lincoln suspended habeas corpus in 1862, flagrantly disregarding Article 1, Section 9 of the Constitution that states a person may not be imprisoned without due process on a whim of the government.
In 1937, the courts in the case of U.S. vs. Belmont ruled that executive agreements do not require the consensus of other branches of the government to be enacted. On March 23, 2005, George Bush Jr. entered into a treaty with Canada and Mexico in which the president of the U.S. is allowed to use troops from those countries to stop an uprising or political unrest…in the U.S. The treaty was signed without the approval of Congress and via executive order.
Readers, I have read your comments and we see the writing on the wall for what it is! What reason for all of these different laws and executive orders if not to bring to bear the whole weight of the U.S. government against the American people? It is poised and ready, just waiting for the right moment to be unleashed.
December 15, 2011 was when Congress passed the NDAA, which of course was ratified into law by Obama while he vacationed in Hawaii, signed with that “auto-pen-thing,” slipped right into everyone’s New Year’s Eve drink under our noses. Section 1021 of the NDAA affirms the authority of the President to detain an individual via the Armed Forces of the United States, and this detention without trial until the end of the hostilities. Guess we all better hope Jade Helm doesn’t go “live.”
Section 1031 refers to the U.S. as a “battlefield,” giving the military the green light to act in a “law enforcement” role in the U.S., and this is the death-knell of the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 that the Warner Defense Act of 2006 had already negated. We are already well aware of the March 16, 2012 Executive Order Obama signed for National Defense Resources Preparedness, in which every thing that can be eaten, drank, driven, grown….virtually everything in the U.S., including human labor…is now under the authority of Obama and his minions during an “emergency,” whether real, created, or imaginary.
With all that has just been mentioned, there is so much more to it than this. He must be crafted out of Teflon…nothing sticks to him. Nothing. Not Benghazi (or the entire “Arab Spring,” for that matter), not Fast and Furious, not the bin Laden thing where an entire SEAL Team paid the price to keep a lid on the truth (in a Chinook, no less of an ignominy…when have you ever heard of a SEAL team extracted or transported by a Chinook?), and so on ad infinitum. Nothing sticks to this guy. Nothing.
Make no mistake about it; the groundwork and foundation have been put into place. The NDAA is there, all primed and ready to be used against us, the American citizens. The EO’s are all in place to confiscate our resources and to force us into internment camps to perform forced labor for KBR (Kellogg, Brown, and Root) under the supervision of the Internment Specialist MOS of the U.S. Army. The police departments, local and state, have effectively been federalized by the dangling of the carrot (federal funds) in front of the jackasses (the state governors and their respective state legislatures).
Now all that the regime needs is a good false flag, or the conversion of an existing problem into something cataclysmic. A war, or an economic collapse would be good triggers. Make no mistake, guys and gals, we are right on the edge. All it will take is a small shove and we’ll pass over the tipping point. The point is that the propaganda and the conditioning of the public consciousness to accept martial law are well under way. The “for your own safety” and “in the interests of the nation/national security/public good,” etc., slogans are going to be the keys to their pulling the trigger on a martial law scenario.
Every day the envelope is pushed just a little further. It is also quite obvious there are much larger forces that pull the strings of Obama: the globalists so desirous of their world government. The UN and other foreign forces, backed by the thieves of the IMF and the World Bank are slavering with anticipation of the United States giving away its own sovereignty and becoming another “district” in their version of “the Hunger Games.” I submit to you that the actions this regime has taken toward the American people is nefarious and evil because it cannot answer the question “why” for any of its actions with any legitimacy. There is no reason that has been given that justifies any of the things done by either the administration or its bureaucratic fiefdoms.
Why would DHS need billions of hollow point rounds for paper targets? Why would MRAP’s and other armored personnel carriers be sent to towns akin to Gomer Pyle’s Mayberry? Why are all of these military maneuvers being carried out on American soil in populated areas? Why is all of the hardware…tanks, artillery, etc., being shipped all over the U.S.?
The answer to all of them, good Readers, is that we are now in a “soft” tyranny. It will morph into something much harder, and the only unanswered question is “when” that tyranny will fully flower. Let’s open up the dialogue. The comments have been great: in-depth and thought provoking. I ask you to present your prognosis and your ideas about where we are and where we’re going, both short and long term. Also, I’m trying to answer as many of you back as possible, so please don’t be offended if I haven’t answered yours right away. I’m reading each and every one of them; they’re that important to me, and I hope they are important to you (one another) as a group.
Stay alert and frosty, and keep up the good work. Have a great day!
