What Would Happen If Martial Law Was Declared In America?

What Would Happen If Martial Law Was Declared In America?
 By Michael Snyder

In recent weeks, there has been a lot of concern that an upcoming eight week military exercise on U.S. soil known as “Jade Helm” is actually a dress rehearsal for the imposition of martial law in this country.

One of the reasons for the high level of concern is that we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of “urban warfare exercises” conducted by the U.S. military in major U.S. cities over the past decade – including exercises where “dissidents” are hunted down, arrested and hauled away.  As our world becomes increasingly unstable, and as our society rapidly decays from within, many believe that it is only a matter of time before the executive branch will have sufficient excuse to use the extensive martial law powers that it has been accumulating since 9/11.  When that day arrives, what will our nation look like?  What would actually happen if martial law was declared in America?

Well, the first thing that you need to know is that the U.S. Constitution would be “suspended”.

In other words, you would suddenly have no rights at all.

There would be no freedom of speech, no freedom of the press, no freedom of assembly and you could be arrested at any time for any reason whatsoever.

For the duration of the “emergency”, the military would be in control.  There would be troops in the streets, a curfew would almost certainly be imposed, and armed checkpoints would be set up.

If the “emergency” lasted long enough, we would probably see authorities go house to house confiscating firearms, ammunition and food supplies.

Good read. I wouldn't put anything past the dictator and his jock strap holders.

One presumes this national emergency would require extending the incumbent Resident's term of office, until the crises he created have been replaced by something even worse.

I understand where your coming from that Obama would probably like to do this. However, I think even democrats would oppose it. They see what he has done to their party and ready for him to ride off into the sunset.

Who are the moderate Dems, or the so-called Blue Dog Democrats who are reliably hawkish on national defense? Which Donk dares buck the Obozo party line that our military must be CHANGED, damn it, irretrievably saved from itself?

Crackpot trash like Durbin or that detestable Chuckie Schumer are NOT the hawks to swing that sorry gaggle of sociopaths away from their present defenseless course. The Donks are welded to the anchor of the Titanic. Full steam ahead.

I don't make the judgement. It is a conspiracy theory.

I only ask, because only an idiot would even consider dead and maimed, a hoax. Hell, it was televised live.
Whoever this idiot is, he seriously needs to seek help.

Were people killed and maimed?  If so, this doesn't seem to be a hoax.  I'm open to the possibility that this was orchestrated by a rouge government agency, but it seems to me people really got hurt and wasn't staged.

Please provide evidence that people weren't hurt or maimed.

What is the conspiracy?  As far as I know, people were maimed and killed.  If you are standing behind that, or want to give validity to that, then please say so.  There are many conspiracies that deserve discussion and analysis, even if they go to the fringe of what many people are comfortable with.  This, however, is silly to say people weren't really killed or maimed.  If you want to discuss WHO or WHY, or whatever, then that's one thing.  I personally think these guys could have been mind controlled to do this.  It may be possible they were set up as patsies.  I don't know, but to give validity that people weren't killed or maimed is like giving validity that no people died in 9/11, or there was no holocaust.

Getting back to the question posed in the OP:

What would happen if Martial Law were declared in the U.S.?

I would say, very little.

Look. It's not like they are going to say, "Hey, we're taking over and we don't want any shit from you little morons!" No, they are going to cook up some "reasonable" emergency to justify the imposition of Martial Law. The MSM will parrot whatever talking points the Administration puts out and opposing voices will be either quietly silenced or deemed to be Enemies of the State and arrested.

The MSM will, of course, opine as to how these arrests will increase the safety of all Americans and is a small price to pay for the security of our Democracy.

Oh, to be sure, there will be some demonstrations - they will be portrayed by the MSM as extreme Right Wing lunatics. There might even be some armed resistance - this will only reinforce belief (by most citizens) that the imposition of Martial Law by the Administration was justified! In fact, they'll think it was a smart thing to do!

As long as the majority of Americans can continue to go about their business with only a minimum of inconvenience, no one is going to get that upset about it!

What about elections - you ask?

I honestly believe that the majority of Americans really wouldn't give a rats ass if elections were suspended indefinitely. In 2008 only 61% of eligible voters actually showed up at the polls. However that 61% only equals about 43% of the total population of the U.S.

And it was the election with the highest voter participation rate in U.S. history - but only 131 million of nearly 300 million citizens voted!

Sadly, I think most people of this country would say, "No elections? GREAT! I won't have to sit through those stupid campaign commercials!"

We have already had a look at the scenes on the streets. Boston during the emergency, and in any number of drill where the town was "occupied."  Our sister city participated.
What we have not seen is how bank accounts, businesses, schools, the elected representatives, all those kinds of nuts and bolts things have been worked out.
Interesting how emergency preparedness has been transformed into a total police power exercise.  Are we that sick as a society, or would the authorities just like to encourage that scenario?
How they do, is to divide the people so much (Think Al, Barack, and Eric) Then come in with the "solution." From now on, you are all equal. Problem solved. Crown 'im.
