martial law?!?!!?

Dear Respondents,
Your patriotism and love of this country is admirable and your trust in our government beyond reproach. The sad reality is, however, that if a massive attack, let's say a nuclear weapon, destroys any American city, even on the opposite side of this country, martial law is not a hypothetical scenario. U.S. Northern Command in Colorado was established for just just a situation. The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 protects us all from tanks running down our streets, and armed soldiers around your street corner. The erosion of that act through the Insurrection Act of '06 along with recent executive orders make it all too possible that our military could be put into a nightmare scenario of having them police us, round some of us up, take away our firearms, like they did in New Orleans, and even establish camps-- which the govt. just signed a contract for, with halliburton for just such 'temporary' camps-- to construct-- 300 nationally. So before you utterly condemn this mayor, please consider he could be doing something we'll later all applaud.
thank you.

Blindful patriotism is the best weapon the establishment has against our common sense.

Directive 51 is NOT a recent executive order. A similiar order was signed in 1998 by Clinton.(if my memmory serves well)

Next question is have you read that directive by Bush?

I notice that the balance of powers is still in tact in case of some catastrophe/emergency. Since you dont read nor take the time to read the directive ill post you a lil burp.

(e) "Enduring Constitutional Government," or "ECG," means a cooperative effort among the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Federal Government, coordinated by the President, as a matter of comity with respect to the legislative and judicial branches and with proper respect for the constitutional separation of powers among the branches, to preserve the constitutional framework under which the Nation is governed and the capability of all three branches of government to execute constitutional responsibilities and provide for orderly succession, appropriate transition of leadership, and interoperability and support of the National Essential Functions during a catastrophic emergency;

Notice this:
"...the capability of all three branches of government to execute constitutional responsibilities and provide for orderly succession, appropriate transition of leadership..."

To bad you are lazy and every article i have read, none have posted this burp. They are crying about Bush being a dictator. Do your own research MT and stop relying on idiots to make decisions for you.

I mean whos the fool? The fool or he who follows the fool?

Cash outranks "blindful" patriotism as a weapon.

It depends on what you believe "Orderly Succession" and "Transition of Leadership" to mean.

The Bush administration has already shown us how loose terms can be, especially with the whole "Habeus Corpus was never granted by the constitution" bit

But we're all wacky nutjobs right Bigdog?

"Habeus Corpus was never granted by the constitution"

Can you prove this one way or the other?

Article 1 Sec.9 paragraph 2

The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when
in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.


Notice the simplicity of the statemnet. A fool, like myself, would look at this and think it says what it says. But the wonderful leadership that we are to trust for ECG have interpreted it in a number of ways with which I have disagreed.

Once again you are acting a fool. As if you are trying to show more ignorance.

You think you got me?

This was meant for miles. However you will do. Let me educate you!!

Article I of the Constitution outlines the powers and limits of the Legislative Branch of government.

Article 2 lays out the Executive Branch, and Article 3 defines the Judicial Branch.

In Section 9, Clause 2 of Article I, the Constitution says of the Legislative branch's authority:

"The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it."

The priveledge of HC is not granted by the constitution,it
garruntees the priveledge to a citizen. As stated in the preamble(We the people of the US).

It also states the reason for its suspension. Inclusive if you are not a US citizen and you are found to be an enemy of the state
(lawful enemy combatant) as defined by the Military Commissions Act of 2006; then guess what MT?

Per speciale Mandatum Domini Regis.

What followed in 2006 was congress giving Bush and other acting presidents the ability to act in such a way. wich i have tried to explain to you.

I have had this arguement with you before and you refuse to listen. Your ignorance(ignoring these facts) makes you a fool as you have stated.
