Watchman: The Constitution Has Long Been Suspended, and We’ve Been Under Martial Law for Some Years. The Government, Power-Hungry, Lawless, and Resolute in Its Quest of Dictatorial Powers, Does Not Readily Surrender Those Powers Once It Obtains Them

SRH:

God Sending a Strong Delusion to Godless Men Bushes, Clinton's You Get the picture End Times… It’s obvious where this is headed, I continue to say Mr. Trump was God appointed, I’ll stand my grounds on that statement, that doesn’t mean Mr. Trump is going to save America, it means God has given the American people more time to turn back to the creator. The deep state folks are brutal, their cruel, there are no rules when these ungodly individuals come into power. Voices that have proclaimed the truth will be silenced, there will be a narrative, you will march to a drumbeat (NWO) that has been per-arranged by the ungodly elitist, the Bushes, the Clinton's, you get the picture….SRH. The Bible makes it clear why God is sending a strong delusion in the end times: “They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason, God…

the Constitution has long been suspended, and we’ve been operating in a state of martial law for some time now.

The following report is by John & Nisha Whitehead from The Rutherford Institute:

Once a dictator, always a dictator.

Power-hungry, lawless and steadfast in its pursuit of authoritarian powers, the government does not voluntarily relinquish those powers once it acquires, uses and inevitably abuses them.

Likewise, any presidential candidate who promises to be a dictator on day one, if elected, will be a dictator-in-chief for life.

Then again, the president is already a dictator with permanent powers: imperial, unaccountable and unconstitutional thanks to a relatively obscure directive (National Security Presidential Directive 51 and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20), part of the country’s Continuity of Government (COG) plan, which gives unchecked executive, legislative and judicial power to the president in the event of a “national emergency.”

That national emergency can take any form, can be manipulated for any purpose and can be used to justify any end goal—all on the say-so of the president.

It doesn’t even matter what the nature of the crisis might be—civil unrest, the national emergencies, “unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters”—as long as it allows the government to justify all manner of government tyranny in the name of so-called national security.

The country would then be subjected to martial law by default, and the Constitution and the Bill of Rights would be suspended.

For all intents and purposes, the Constitution has long been suspended, and we’ve been operating in a state of martial law for some time now.

The emergency powers that we know about which presidents might claim during such states of emergency are vast, ranging from imposing martial law and suspending habeas corpus to shutting down all forms of communications, including implementing an internet kill switch, and restricting travel.

Yet according to documents obtained by the Brennan Center, there may be many more secret powers that presidents may institute in times of so-called crisis without oversight from Congress, the courts, or the public.

Deploying the same strategy it used with 9/11 to acquire greater powers under the USA Patriot Act, the police state—a.k.a. the shadow government, a.k.a. the Deep State—has been planning and preparing for such crises for years now, quietly assembling a wish list of presidential lockdown powers that could be trotted out and approved at a moment’s notice.

We’re talking about lockdown powers (at both the federal and state level): the ability to suspend the Constitution, indefinitely detain American citizens, bypass the courts, quarantine whole communities or segments of the population, override the First Amendment by outlawing religious gatherings and assemblies of more than a few people, shut down entire industries and manipulate the economy, muzzle dissidents, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease,” reshape financial markets, create a digital currency (and thus further restrict the use of cash), determine who should live or die.

Mind you, the police state with the president at its helm has been riding roughshod over the rule of law for years now without any pretense of being reined in or restricted in its power grabs by Congress, the courts or the citizenry.

Although the Constitution invests the President with very specific, limited powers, in recent years, American presidents have claimed the power to completely and almost unilaterally alter the landscape of this country for good or for ill.

The powers amassed by each successive president through the negligence of Congress and the courts—powers which add up to a toolbox of terror for an imperial ruler—empower whoever occupies the Oval Office to act as a dictator, above the law and beyond any real accountability.

All of the imperial powers amassed by past presidents—to kill American citizens without due process, to detain suspects indefinitely, to strip Americans of their citizenship rights, to carry out mass surveillance on Americans without probable cause, to suspend laws during wartime, to disregard laws with which he might disagree, to conduct secret wars and convene secret courts, to sanction torture, to sidestep the legislatures and courts with executive orders and signing statements, to direct the military to operate beyond the reach of the law, to operate a shadow government, and to act as a dictator and a tyrant, above the law and beyond any real accountability—were passed from Clinton to Bush to Obama to Trump to Biden and will be passed along to the next president.

These presidential powers—acquired through the use of executive orders, decrees, memorandums, proclamations, national security directives and legislative signing statements and which can be activated by any sitting president—enable past, president and future presidents to operate above the law and beyond the reach of the Constitution.

These are the powers that continue to be passed along to each successive heir to the Oval Office, the Constitution be damned.

The war on disinformation, the war on electoral corruption, the war on COVID-19, the war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration: all of these countermeasures have become weapons of compliance and control in the police state’s hands.

This is what you might call a stealthy, creeping, silent, slow-motion coup d’état.

If we continue down this road, there can be no surprise about what awaits us at the end.

After all, it is a tale that has been told time and again throughout history about how easy it is for freedom to fall and tyranny to rise.

What we desperately need is a concerted, collective commitment to the Constitution’s principles of limited government, a system of checks and balances, and a recognition that they—the president, Congress, the courts, the military, the police, the technocrats and plutocrats and bureaucrats—answer to and are accountable to “we the people.”

We must recalibrate the balance of power.

Congress must also put an end to the use of presidential executive orders, decrees, memorandums, proclamations, national security directives and legislative signing statements as a means of getting around Congress and the courts.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely—no matter which party holds office.

The process of unseating a dictator and limiting the powers of the presidency is far from simple but at a minimum, it must start with “we the people.”

Make the government play by the rules of the Constitution.


AUTHOR COMMENTARY

If you bothered to check one of the first citations, Whitehead referred to a recent statement by Donald Trump, who, during a recent interview Fox News’ Sean Hannity, said that upon reelection he would be a “dictator” for a day.

Except for day one. I want to close the border, and I want to drill, drill, drill.

We love this guy. He says, ‘You’re not going to be a dictator, are you?’ I said: ‘No, no, no, other than day one. We’re closing the border, and we’re drilling, drilling, drilling. After that, I’m not a dictator.’

Trump said, when asked if he would use his platform to seek retribution

Of course, this is just more Donald Trump hot air and tabloid drama, though, to emphasize that he will play dictator for a day and not thereafter is eyebrow raising.

But, it drives home the point that Whitehead is trying to get at, as people like Trump are just arrogant and flamboyant, as he just goes out and says what’s on his mind.

The fact is our Constitutional and Bill of Rights have been downtrodden for a very long time now – is a point that I have raised before, that our supposed rights really are just an illusion. As I have pointed out many times before, we operate under “Crisis Economics.” It’s one of the many reasons why I don’t waste time with the voting system.

We are constantly being thrust into some new crisis and “war” each year it seems, that we ‘must’ fight and we will be victorious, apparently. It’s been this way since World War II; and that declaration of war never formally came to an end, neither did its wartime powers. The U.S. never truly recovered itself from the Great Depression, and therefore the war machine and Crisis Economics must continually being supplied.

The truth is, however, there is no way to fix it; and with all due respect, the Whitehead’s conclusion of trying to take the power back and hoping for a return to sound justice is simply just a dream. It’s too late for this country. It needs to be allowed to crash at this point. Everything is broken, and in the coming years this will be a formality.

For thus saith the LORD, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound is grievous.

He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again.

Jeremiah 30:12; Job 12:23
