Pondering Survival and Martial Law

I’ve previously discussed the possibility of martial law and FEMA camps. I don’t think there’s any doubt that they’re becoming more of a reality all the time. However, events may not happen when and where we think. How ready are you for martial law in America?

Don’t be fooled into thinking we’re protected by the Posse Comitatus Act. Though it was created 200 years ago to make sure the military was never used against Americans on our soil, for all practical purposes, this law has been completely cancelled out through Executive Orders.

I read a well done report by a Constitutional scholar who says martial law is neither legal, nor technically possible under the Constitution. That sounds good, but do you think those in power give a rip about any of that? They may send troops out among us and never declare anything. It will still be martial law, whether it’s called that or not. Who cares about legalities?

We’ve already got both American and foreign troops in our country practicing for some future event. Are they preparing to give aid and support in a natural disaster as they claim? Will it be a pandemic–natural or engineered–that sets off the trigger? Will there be checkpoints to see if we’ve taken the vaccine? Will we be hauled off to a camp or holding center if we haven’t? Or will the economy and growing unemployment cause chaos as things spiral downward still more?

The problem is, you and I don’t know the future. All the signs are bad. And it’s been that way for quite a while now. Even the mainstream media’s censored headlines show it. We don’t know when events will escalate to prompt the declaration of martial law.

We also don’t know if it will be declared for certain cities, sections of the country, or the whole country. But then we don’t know when or where natural disasters will occur, do we? That’s why being prepared is essential. If nothing happens, what have you lost?

Is our government concerned with protecting the public? It now seems to exist to benefit a select few. Are we in the calm before the engineered storm? Will you be ready when an officer asks for your papers?

What will you do with the realization that most types of resistance are futile? How can you be calm and confident in the midst of oppression?

Evil doesn’t just roll over and go away. You and I may be labeled as domestic terrorists before long, if we’re not already. How will we survive what is to come?
