Some of the stuff sounds plausible, some not so much.
I think the markets would be shut down, before trading really got out of hand.
I highly doubt US Special Forces would be used to protect the Federal Reserve. I can see private military contractors and just maybe units from 101st
and 82nd Airborne divisions. More than likely any federal troops would just be on alert or standby and not actually deploy to the sites. There should
be one or more Federal Reserve bunkers, that replaced the original Mount Pony bunker. These sites, which will house various computers and electronic
records, will have priority over any physical bank.
When these "6900 protocols" would have been created it would have been in the 1960s or 1970s. Many many things have changed since then, especially
An entirely new system is in place.
Food, gas and water would be rationed in the worst areas. This is to prevent panic buying. Contractors and/or National Guard would protect the food,
gas, and water. They would also maintain order at any distribution sites. People would be issued a card, like a credit card, but it would function as
a ration card. You go through the line, get your rations and go home. Curfews would keep people from wondering around when they shouldn't be.
We, I personally was involved in it, already tested this type of operation after Hurricanes Ike and Gustav.
It won't be martial law. Martial law implies military governors, military tribunals, UCMJ- Uniform code of military justice, etc.
What we are looking at is a State of National Emergency. The State Governors would still be in control and would coordinate with the National Command
Authority to maintain order.
Only if a State government collapses, which could happen in California, then Congress would have to declare martial law in that state. A provisional
military governor and military tribunals would then set up in that state to restore order.
