Bush Moves Toward Martial Law
In a stealth maneuver, President Bush has signed into law a provision which, according to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), will actually encourage the President to declare federal martial law (1). It does so by revising the Insurrection Act, a set of laws that limits the President's ability to deploy troops within the United States. The Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C.331 -335) has historically, along with the Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C.1385), helped to enforce strict prohibitions on military involvement in domestic law enforcement. With one cloaked swipe of his pen, Bush is seeking to undo those prohibitions.

[...]

For the current President, "enforcement of the laws to restore public order" means to commandeer guardsmen from any state, over the objections of local governmental, military and local police entities; ship them off to another state; conscript them in a law enforcement mode; and set them loose against "disorderly" citizenry - protesters, possibly, or those who object to forced vaccinations and quarantines in the event of a bio-terror event.

The law also facilitates militarized police round-ups and detention of protesters, so called "illegal aliens," "potential terrorists" and other "undesirables" for detention in facilities already contracted for and under construction by Halliburton. That's right. Under the cover of a trumped-up "immigration emergency" and the frenzied militarization of the southern border, detention camps are being constructed right under our noses, camps designed for anyone who resists the foreign and domestic agenda of the Bush administration.
DETENTION CAMPS?????

Had enough yet?

Habeas corpus, posse comitatus... it seems like the President is determined to do away with all Latin, because he can't fucking pronounce it.

yep, here in Deming, NM we have the wonderful additions of two holding facilities and a "temporary" full base being set up

Had enough long ago. This is not surprising to me at all. The law passed under the cloak of darkness, as it were, when we were all worrying about the Military Commissions Act (and rightly so); we should have been looking for the other shoe, too.

Here it is. Bush's dictatorial potential is secure. I understand there is a detention camp in Okanogan County, WA, and that is probably where I will wind up, because I will not be silent.

You know, I always thought the 2nd ammendment was a useless throwback to revolutionary times, but this makes me want to go out and buy an arsenal for when the sickness spreads up north and the G-men come clutching for us all.

I don't want to frighten you into thinking I'm some sort of stalker, but your avatar looks AWFULLY familiar, if that's you. (The worst part is, I don't know if it's someone I went to high school with, or college, or what! I hate getting old and losing brain cells.) You're not from the Midwest by chance, are you? Say, not far from St. Louis way?

Nope, completely wrong part of the country. Sorry!

I often get told that I look like someone else, but I have yet to meet her/them.

I'd tell you who you remind me of ... if I could remember ... LOL ...

Are you kidding me? The average bovine Republican voter will still pull the lever for these madmen because "Well Shit, Vern, he shore do wave the flag higher'n er other feller!"

I'm not negating the BADNESS of all this, but federal martial law would mean much, MUCH worse than even this, Jude. You do know the ultimate outcome of martial law for Bush & Co., don't you? The ability to indefinitely stall national elections.

I need to write that again for myself: THE ABILITY TO SUSPEND THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT THAT KICKS EVEN THE BEST PRESIDENTS OUT OF OFFICE AFTER TWO TERMS.

A savvy political friend and I were predicting this back in 2004 right after Bush stole yet another election. Her posit was that there was no way he would ever willingly give up the White House, and if he didn't think he could get enough support to repeal that Amendment, he'd do something else that didn't require the consent of the constituency.

And this is exactly what she predicted.

Happy fucking Halloween!

I'm thoroughly scared, now!

This is beyond scary. What's worse is that he has two more years to come up with more of these ploys to get his way. What else is this man going to do to destroy our constitution?

Yet, most people I talk to about all this just don't get how serious it really is, for this country. They just don't want to believe these things are really happening here.

I keep sounding the warning bell but it doesn't seem to be getting me very far. Too many people who are not politically aware. They are too busy trying to enjoy the life they are losing piece by piece.

So scary>>>

Over 10 years ago I had heard stories that there were detention camps already in several out-of-the-way places, ready for when the government decided to round up "undesirables". I guess they're finally going to start getting their money's worth...

So, Canada until 2008?
