I just took a little tour around cyberspace to see who’s saying what about US Martial Law. There are literally thousands of posts about this, some from as far away as Pakistan. What I couldn’t help but notice, though, is that not even one of these articles was from a major news network.

So I went to each of the network sites, and searched their archives. I found articles about Bolivian martial law and Somalian martial law – and lots about the “debate” and lipstick – but not one about the military on US streets, the threats made to congress, or anything related.

Could it be that the government is controlling what the mainstream media talks about? In any event, I guess it’s up to the blogosphere to get the word out, at least until they shut us down. Naomi Wolf had an excellent contribution, so I will share part of it here.

Thousands of Troops Are Deployed on U.S. Streets
Ready to Carry Out “Crowd Control”

I interviewed Vietnam veteran, retired U.S. Air Force Colonel and patriot David Antoon for clarification:

“If the President directed the First Brigade to arrest Congress, what could stop him?”

“Nothing. Their only recourse is to cut off funding. The Congress would be at the mercy of military leaders to go to them and ask them not to obey illegal orders.”

“But these orders are now legal?’”

“Correct.”

“If the President directs the First Brigade to arrest a bunch of voters, what would stop him?”

“Nothing. It would end up in courts but the action would have been taken.”

“If the President directs the First Brigade to kill civilians, what would stop him?”

“Nothing.”

“What would prevent him from sending the First Brigade to arrest the editor of the Washington Post?

“Nothing. He could do what he did in Iraq — send a tank down a street in Washington and fire a shell into the Washington Post as they did into Al Jazeera, and claim they were firing at something else.”
