“I mean, we had martial law out there,” Paul said on Fox Business Network’s Cavuto earlier this week. “The federal government is not supposed to be our police force.” It’s criminal that people tolerated this so much,,,"
In yet another astonishingly treasonous act the U.S. administration has eliminated yet another key check to control out of control government, the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act. The Posse Comitatus Act abolished the use of the U.S. military against our own citizens and eliminated the ability of the U.S. government to eliminate the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights by declaring Martial Law.
This act attempts to nullify the Posse Comitatus Act and the Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C. 331-335) and gives the President the legal ability to declare Martial Law under any condition he so chooses.
In a 1982 FEMA memo by John Brinkerhoff to FEMA agency director Louis Giuffrida, they note that Martial Law "suspends all prior existing laws, functions, systems, and programs of civil government, replacing them... with a military system."
The elimination of these basic rights started in 1971 when Deputy Secretary of Defense David Packard modified the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 32, Volume 2, Chapter 1, Part 215, Section 6 with the "Employment of Military Resources in the Event of Civil Disturbances" scam that effectively revoked a substantial part of the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act providing for 'exceptions' to the Act.
is the imposition of military rule by military authorities over designated regions on an emergency basis.
Article 1, Section 9 of the US Constitution states, "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."
In United States law, martial law is limited by several court decisions that were handed down between the American Civil War and World War II. In 1878, Congress passed the Posse Comitatus Act, which forbids military involvement in domestic law enforcement without congressional approval.
At least two American lawmakers have stated on the record that, in their opinion, Section 1031 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 legalizes or authorizes martial law in the United States. Senator Mark Udall stated "These provisions raise serious questions as to who we are as a society and what our Constitution seeks to protect...Section 1031 essentially repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 by authorizing the U.S. military to perform law enforcement functions on American soil."
Martial Law went into effect at 10:00 pm on Thursday April 25th

If we let them get away with having this much power, tomorrow they could just decide to do round ups and railroad everyone to the furnace camps with little resistance.
We have to stop them now before they get their grips on this level of power.
Once we pass the threshold there will be no turning back.

It's "martial laws", not "marshal laws".
I have nothing else to contribute to this thread, sorry.
...it is poor decision making by citizens to latch onto the idea that guns are required and necessary to battle the over uses of authority.
...taking back our federal government...
I understand these comments are a bit off from the intended concepts of the post
It's our fault as citizens...

With the creation of the DHS, which is a military style police force with a big budget, Posse Comitatus was destroyed.
Martial law was declared over a man hunt for one person, that sickens me.

People seem really confused about what DHS really is.
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
