Hi folks,
I didnt know where to put this, so i used this forum as it is under general. a chap i work with has told me that someone he listens to on c2c (i think alex jones, but dont quote me on that) said something about ministers being approached and told to preach a sermon on martial law to congregation. i doubted this for a while, but then found out that someone else i work with is a minister, and he is aware of this request. from what i can make out, the sermon is about following the orders of the person that gives the martial law and not to fight the powers. i dont know how right this is, and was wondering whether or not anyone else has heard of this?

this is kinda of vague i realise, but not 100% up on the details.

They were activated during Katrina...

In early 2006, the 109th Congress passed a controversial bill which grants the President the right to commandeer Federal or even State National Guard Troops and use them inside the United States. This bill, entitled the John Warner Defense Appropriation Act for Fiscal Year 2007 (H.R. 5122.ENR), contains a provision, (Section 1076) which allows the President to:

“...employ the armed forces, including the National Guard in Federal service, to...

restore public order and enforce the laws of the United States when, as a result of a natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition in any State or possession of the United States..., where the President determines that,...domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of maintaining public order; suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy...” [3] Senator Patrick Leahy and others have condemned Section 1076 because it effectively nullifies the Posse Comitatus Act and the Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C. 331-335) and gives the President the legal ability to define under what conditions martial law may be declared.

Yes, I heard a similar thing here in the U.S. Can't remember where though.
