Obama has no legal authority or right to declare or rule the U.S. under martial law – U.S. ConstitutionCorruption, World news Sunday, October 13th, 2013
Barack Obama (an agent of the Crown, a.k.a. City of London Corporation) cannot use the staged US default deadline as a pretext to declare martial law in the United States. The second Barack Obama or any president thereafter declares martial law in the United States his presidency is immediately revoked. Any and all authority over the United States and its people are also immediately revoked.
Any president that suspends the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Congress and or the Courts is no longer the president of the federal constitutional republic of the United States nor commander-in-chief of its military. The president is only president by the consent of the people and by the authority of an enduring U.S. Constitution. In the event martial law is illegally declared by the president, all of his powers and authority vested in him by the Constitution are immediately forfeited, not to FEMA or any unelected members of an unconstitutional Continuity of Government but “to the States respectively, or to the people” ~ US Constitution Amendment 10 states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Martial Law is the suspension of the Constitution under the declaration of an eminent danger, disaster, emergency, rebellion, insurrection, invasion, time of war, etc. During such time the Bill of Rights is suspended, and the Courts and the Congress or State Legislatures may also be suspended, as well as any state office (even a governor) or federal office which opposes the declaration as well. NOTHING in the Constitution grants officers of federal or state government this power.
Before any United States natural born citizen can become president and commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces and enter on the Execution of his Office, he or she must take the following Oath or Affirmation:—”I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute s the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” The presidency does not begin until he or she takes this solemn oath. He or she cannot be president until he or she takes this oath.
A declaration of martial law is a gross violation of the president’s solemn oath. The Constitution succinctly defines presidential functions, powers, and responsibilities. The president’s chief duty is to make sure that the laws are faithfully executed, and this duty is performed through an elaborate system of executive agencies that includes cabinet-level departments. The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the US. It must be faithfully executed. It can never be suspended by the United States president.
Article Two of the United States Constitution, Section 4 states:
“The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High crimes and Misdemeanors.”
Treason was specifically defined in the United States Constitution, the only crime so defined. Article III Section 3 delineates treason as follows: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” Martial law is the unlawful use of military forces against the nation’s citizens – levying War against them.
The Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C. § 1385) limits the powers of the federal governments and law enforcement agencies in using federal military personnel to enforce the laws of the land. The Act prohibits members of the Army from exercising state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain “law and order”; without complying with the United States Constitution or Act of Congress.
“Sec. 15. From and after the passage of this act it shall not be lawful to employ any part of the Army of the United States, as a posse comitatus, or otherwise, for the purpose of executing the laws, except in such cases and under such circumstances as such employment of said force may be expressly authorized by the Constitution or by act of Congress ; and no money appropriated by this act shall be used to pay any of the expenses incurred in the employment of any troops in violation of this section and any person willfully violating the provisions of this section shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction thereof shall be punished by fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars or imprisonment not exceeding two years or by both such fine and imprisonment“ If the US Constiution and/or the Congress are suspended the use of any US troops is prohibited – shall not be lawful.
The Third Amendment to the United States Constitution (part of the United States Bill of Rights) prohibits, in peacetime, the quartering of soldiers in private homes without the owner’s consent. It makes quartering legally permissible in wartime only, but only according to law.
“No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.”
In Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer 343 U.S. 579, 644 (1952), Justice Robert H. Jackson’s concurring opinion cites the Third Amendment as providing evidence of the Framers’ intent to constrain executive power even during wartime: “[t]hat military powers of the Commander in Chief were not to supersede representative government of internal affairs seems obvious from the Constitution and from elementary American history. Time out of mind, and even now in many parts of the world, a military commander can seize private housing to shelter his troops. Not so, however, in the United States, for the Third Amendment says…[E]ven in war time, his seizure of needed military housing must be authorized by Congress.”
Article VI – Debts, Supremacy, Oaths: The Supreme Law of the Land is comprised of the Constitution, Law, and Treaty. The Constitution has supremacy over Law and Treaty, as it is it which constructs our governance, the separation of powers and checks and balances, and the powers and authorities of the People, the States, and the Union, respectively, and every officer of the United States and the several states are bound by Oath to the Constitution.
“All Debts contracted and Engagements entered into, before the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
Article 1, Section 1 – “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.“ This makes all executive orders by the president null and void.
Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution – “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
Article 1, Section 8 Powers of Congress: Congress may only make laws respecting the Powers vested and enumerated in the Constitution. Congress has no authority whatsoever to legislate or vest powers which it or the federal government are not granted or are specifically prohibited by the Constitution. Claiming the authority, or vesting such authority into any officer of government to declare martial law and suspending the Constitution is NOT a necessary and proper Law enforcing the Constitution. The Constitution can not be enforced by declaration of martial law which suspends it.
Although the militia is charged with suppressing Insurrections and repelling Invasions, it is also charged with executing the Laws of the Union. The United States Supreme Law is comprised of the Constitution, Law, and Treaty, and the Constitution has supremacy over both Law and Treaty. As martial law is the suspension of the Constitution, and the militia is charged with executing the Laws of the Union, the suspension of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, or any office of State or Federal government which refuses to yield and comply with martial law is a Treasonous Act.
The rights of the states and the people are not mere privileges which may be regulated or suspended by the whims or declarations of government. The proper context of Rights and Liberties is that they are the Powers and Immunities of the Citizens of the United States which the Constitution EXPLICITLY PROHIBIT’S the powers or authorities of Government from infringing upon or abridging.
Regardless of the proclamations, justifications, and orders that government may give for enforcing the presumed lawful authorities which it grants to itself and deprives of the States and the People, anyone can read for themselves the prohibitions, restrictions, and limitations placed upon the powers of government by the Constitution. Even a casual reading of the Constitution reveals that such restrictions include: shall make no law, or prohibit the free exercise, or abridge the freedom, shall not be infringed, shall not be violated, nor shall be compelled, the accused shall enjoy, shall be preserved, shall not be required, shall not be construed to deny or disparage, shall not be construed, shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities, nor deprive, nor deny, or in any way abridge, shall not be denied or abridged, etc., etc., etc.
And no matter the justification and the powers that governance may claim to wield or order to be enforced, anyone can read in plain language as stated in the Constitution that the enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people; and that the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
The Bill of Rights exist to censure the authorities of government. That is why we have Juries standing between the powers of government and the rights of citizens, and we decide for ourselves the merits of the law, the validity of the evidences, and the weight of guilt against the accused and enforce the Rule of Law upon both governance and the accused. That is why every officer of government may be Impeached, barred from office, and subject to civil and criminal prosecutions, even for misdemeanors.
Article 1, Section 9 Limits on Congress: The Writ of Habeas Corpus is a restriction upon the powers of government to arrest persons without charge and the protections of due process and a jury trial and it may not be suspended unless the public safety requires it. Such suspension is supposed to be of temporary and short duration, and if the safety and domestic tranquility are not able to be restored in short order, the accused still has the right to demand that a writ of habeas corpus be issued and to be tried in a jurisdiction removed from the public danger so that he may enjoy a speedy trial with the protections of due process enforced by an unbiased jury.
Article 1, Section 9 Limits on Congress: A Bill of Attainder is a bill or declaration having a negative effect on the rights of individuals or the rights of the citizenry as a whole, resulting in the loss of all civil rights by governmental declaration during times of public danger or as a result of a sentencing for a crime. Historically Bills of Attainder have resulted in executions or long terms of imprisonment without any means of redress. The Constitution explicitly prohibits the passage of Bills of Attainder as Law.
Article 1, Section 9 Limits on Congress: An Ex post facto law is a law formulated or enacted retroactively to criminalize and punish acts or behaviors which at the time of their commission were lawful to commit.
When troops or law enforcement help the president impose martial law, not only are they violating the Bill of Rights and subsequent Amendments which expressly forbid government from infringing or abridging the powers and immunities of the People, the are also exercising powers of suspending the Writ of Habeas Corpus and enforcing Bills of Attainder and Ex post facto law which government is also forbidden to do.
Article 2, Section 1 of the United States Constitution declares that the President is bound by Oath to faithfully execute his office and to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution. As martial law is a suspension of the Constitution, the order to impose martial law would be a violation of the Constitution and an Act of Treason.
In the event of martial law being declared, no US military personnel is authorized to carry out any order(s) by Barack Obama. He is no longer your commander-in-chief under martial law. Your oath states: “I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God. “ Your sworn duty is to the Constitution – to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”. By imposing martial law and suspending the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Congress and or Courts Obama has become an enemy of the United States. Immediately upon imposing martial law Obama forfeited his Constitutional authority and rights to command you and lead the people of the United States.
