9-23-09 - VISIONS - Approximately 9 a.m. I got so tired, I
felt like I was going to fall down if I didn't lay down, so I went to bed to
take a nap, but I didn't fall asleep. So, I decided to meditate a bit, and
started off with prayer as I usually do.
As soon as the prayer was done, a voice said, "With regard to December
7th!" - and I saw a photo album open up with colored pictures on the
right-hand page of ships at dock - large ships. These pictures could have
been Memorial Stamps put out by the government.
That vision faded and then the voice said, "And as a baby turns around!"
and the album opened up again, and on the left-hand page, I was seeing black and
white pictures like one sees of babies in the womb before birth, and the baby
was in the process of getting ready to be born. There were 6 or 7 photos of the
baby as it turned.
Then I had a third vision - this one was of a person holding a green water
hose and the water was shooting out full blast towards the left.
Lastly, I felt an electrical shock go through my head from my right ear
toward the left, and I knew it was over.
NOTE: The reference to December 7th is ominous, because I've had
visions and dreams about it before about a New Pearl Harbor attack to occur just
like the old one in 1941.
The other thing is that the attack on New York City on 9/11/2001 was also
called the Second Pearl Harbor, and I've written about the Third Pearl Harbor
coming. Especially now with talk about new terror threats especially on
Chicago and perhaps other cities. But it feels to me like the threat is
going to come from the sea this time.
It's hard not to conclude with historians like Charles
Bateson that "Magic standing alone points so irresistibly to the
Harbor attack that it is ...
Similar to the PNAC yearning for a "new

only be accomplished with the aid of ...

|1-9-09 - DREAM - I was on a military
ship in the harbor at Hawaii. There was a large group of military
men on board the ship, but the ones I was looking at were not in military
uniform, they were dressed in black wet suits. There was a series of
events being planned, but today's was all set to take place.
NOTE: Remember that President elect
Obama was supposedly born in Hawaii, and several main politicians said
that 'something' was going to happen as soon as Obama is elected that will
force him to make unpopular decisions, thus I am posting this now to make
sure the dream gets posted before the election. Others have said that a
'false flag' event will probably occur this coming weekend, before the
election so that President Bush will have to take action in place of Obama
before he leaves office.
back to the dream:
The head guy of this particular group was large - very
impressive. He jumped off the ship into the harbor - and at that
moment I saw the date December 24, 1901
and then a large bull's eye
The dream changed and I was with this same man and
his wife, and they invited me to go to a concert with them. I could
barely walk and I really didn't feel like following them, so I told them I
was going to go home and change clothes.
I reached what I thought was my apartment #12, but
when I entered the door, there was a black family living there. The
picture window out to the yard was really large and there were a lot of
kids looking in the window to see what was going on.
I woke up to a song being sung by kids called
'Soldiering'. I remembered it from when I was a kid. I was born on
December 26, 1938, and grew up during WWII.

7-1-09 - DREAM - I was in Milwaukee, WI, working at A-C
(Allis-Chalmers) I was going on a trip and before I did that, I had
to go outside and water the plants so they would survive while I was gone.
When I was out on the sidewalk, I was checking where cars were
parking because nobody was supposed to park right in front of the doors to
the building. There was a very wide access sidewalk - large enough for a
bus to park there. The trees and plants were on the sides of that
access spot. Cars could stop and discharge passengers there, but no
one could park there.
I looked in both directions to check where the plants were, then I
set about to water each plant individually with a very large plastic cup
full of water.
I then went to the airport where I was meeting Todd (Trevor St.
John) (from One Life to Live TV show). I got there first, and
Todd's ex-wife Blair (actually Kassie DePalva) was there standing in front
of the doors to the airport lobby. She asked me what I was doing
there and I told her I was meeting Todd and he was taking me to Hawaii.
She nodded and walked away - when I thought she would be jealous that he
was taking me somewhere. He was actually taking me farther than that -
like Japan and other places..
Then I saw Todd coming across the parking lot towards me. He
was dressed in a bright blue suit jacket - that was so bright, it was
almost irridescent - it was so outstanding and out of place next to other
people, that's all I could see. It really felt uncomfortable.
After he arrived, I was looking at the itinerary of what Todd was
going to be doing on this trip. There were many items on this page
and I was bringing them all together in one paragraph because he was going
to be doing all these things at the same time. So the page had the
name Todd on it numerous times (over 20)
I can't remember what any of the things were that he was going to
do, but when Todd does things, he does them - big - and there are
always people upset, angry, and he always regrets getting caught doing
them and everyone is 'always' angry about what he does.
NOTE: The boy's name Todd is pronounced tahd. It is of
origin, and its meaning is "fox".
The name possibly refers to a
dialectal word for a
fox in some parts of

Batangas, Dec. 24, 1901.
- To All Station Commanders:
- In order to make the existing state of war and martial
law so inconvenient and unprofitable to the people that they
will earnestly desire and work for the re-establishment of peace
and civil government, and for the purpose of throwing the burden
of the war upon the disloyal element, pursuant to provisions of
paragraphs 21, 37, 76, and 156,
General Orders No. 100, the following expedients may, in the
discretion of subdistrict and station commanders, be adopted
- First. Until the re-establishment of civil government and
the making of provisions thereby for the repair of roads and
performance of other public work, the old Spanish law requiring
either fifteen days' free labor or three pesos tax in lieu
thereof may be enforced, and road work be begun as soon as it is
practicable or safe to do so.
- With this purpose in view, lists will be immediately
prepared of all the principales, who will have the privilege of
either paying three pesos or working; but all other poor people,
able-bodied males, will be required to work in turn.
The following order was issued on Christmas Eve:
[Telegraphic circular No. 22.]
Batangas, Dec. 24, 1901.
- To All Station Commanders:
- The purpose of the preceding telegraphic circulars of
instruction has been to place the burden of the war on the
disloyal, and to so discipline the inhabitants that they will
become anxious to aid and assist the government in putting an
end to the insurrection and in securing the re-establishment of
civil government. Their provisions are based upon the assumption
that, with very few exceptions, practically the entire
population has been hostile to us at heart. In order to combat
such a population, it is necessary to make the state of war as
insupportable as possible; and there is no more efficacious way
of accomplishing this than by keeping the minds of the people in
such a state of anxiety and apprehension that living under such
conditions will soon become unbearable.
- Little should be said. The less said the better. The
making of threats which cannot be carried out should especially
be carefully guarded against. Let acts, not words, convey
intentions. The more an officer does and the less he says about
what he is going to do, the more apprehensive and anxious will
become those who are guilty and who wait for what is next to
happen. When it becomes necessary to give warning or public
instructions, do it dispassionately, and not in a threatening
- Though it is intended and desired that the policy to be
enforced shall be as rigid and relentless as it possibly can be
until the people have come to their senses and completely turned
against the insurgents, the brigade commander relies upon the
sense of duty of every officer and non-commissioned officer and
the personal pride and gentility of every enlisted man to
effectually preclude looting and other abuses committed for
personal advantage. He feels certain that officers and men who
have so important a duty to perform, and who are forced to adopt
such radical measures to accomplish it, do not wish to reflect
serious discredit upon their motives by seeking or desiring any

words, the military authorities took whole provinces of people
apparently pursuing their ordinary avocations, and undertook by
every form of oppression -- burning their houses, destroying their
food, confining them within certain zones, confiscating their
property, imprisoning them, or forcing them to work -- to make
them active agents on our side in this war of conquest.
General Bell actually did is shown by his report made the day
Batangas, Dec. 26, 1901.
- I have become convinced that within two months at the
outside there will be no more insurrection in this brigade. We
may not have secured all the guns or caught all the insurgents
by that time, and the present insurrection will end and the men
and the guns will be secured in time.... I am practically sure
they cannot remain here in
Batangas, Laguna, and a part of
Tayabas. The people are now assembled in the towns, with all
the visible food supply except that cached by insurgents in the
mountains. For the next six days all station commanders will be
employed hunting insurgents and their hidden food supplies
within their respective jurisdictions. Population of each town
will be turned out, and all transportation that can be found
impressed to bring into government storehouses all food that is
found, if it be possible to transport it. If not, it will be
- I am now assembling in the neighborhood of twenty-five
hundred men, who will be used in columns of about fifty men
each. I expect to accompany the command. Of course, no such
strength is necessary to cope with all the insurgents in the
Phillipine Islands, but the country is indescribably rough and
badly cut up.... To the ravines and mountains I take so large a
command for the purpose of thoroughly searching each ravine,
valley, and mountain-peak for insurgents and for food, expecting
to destroy everything I find outside of towns. All able-bodied
men will be killed or captured. Old men, women, and children
will be sent to towns. This movement begins January 1, by which
time I hope to have nearly all the food supply in the towns. If
insurgents hide their guns and come into the towns, it will be
to my advantage; for I shall put such a pressure on town
officials and police that they will be compelled to identify
insurgents. If I catch these, I shall get their guns in time. I
expect to first clean out the wide
Loboo Peninsula south of
Tiasan, and San Juan de Boc Boc road. I shall then move

Lake Taal, and sweep the country westward to the ocean and

given all the country of which

General Smith took command October 10, and Major

was dated November 23:
[Circular No. 6.]
Headquarters Sixth Separate Brigade,
Tacloban, Leyte, P.I, Dec. 24,1901.
- To All Station Commanders:
- The brigade commander has become thoroughly convinced
from the great mass of evidence at hand that the insurrection
for some time past and still in force in the island of
Samar has been supported solely by the people who live in
the pueblos ostensibly pursuing their peaceful pursuits and
enjoying American protection, and that this is especially true
in regard to the "pudientes," or wealthy class.
- He is and for some time past has been satisfied that the
people themselves, and especially this wealthy and influential
class, can stop this insurrection at any time they make up their
minds to do so; that up to the present time they do not want
peace; that they are working in every way and to the utmost of
their ability to prevent peace. He is satisfied that this class,
while openly talking peace, is doing so simply to gain the
confidence of our officers and soldiers, only to betray them to
the insurrectos, or, in short, that while ostensibly aiding the
Americans, they are in reality secretly doing everything in
their power to support and maintain this insurrection.
- Under such conditions there can be but one course to
pursue, which is to adopt the policy that will create in the
minds of all the people a burning desire for the war to cease,
-- a desire or longing so intense, so personal especially to
every individual of the class mentioned, and so real that it
will impel them to devote themselves in earnest to bringing
about a state of real peace, that will impel them to join hands
with the Americans in the accomplishment of this end.
- The policy to be pursued in this brigade, from this time
on, will be to wage war in the sharpest and most decisive manner
possible. This policy will apply to the island of
Samar and such other portions of the brigade to which it may
become necessary to apply it, even though such territory is
supposedly peaceful or is under civil government.
- In waging this warfare, officers of this brigade are
directed and expected to co-operate to their utmost, so as to
terminate this war as soon as practicable, since short severe
wars are the most humane in the end. No civilized war, however
civilized, can be carried on on a humanitarian basis. In waging
this war, officers will be guided by the provisions of General
Orders, No. 100, Adjutant-general's Office, 1863, which order
promulgates the instructions for the government of the armies of
the United States in the field. (Copies of this order will be
furnished to the troops of this brigade as soon as practicable.
In the mean time commanding officers will personally see to it
that the younger and less experienced officers of the command
are instructed in the provisions of this order, wherever it is
possible to do so.)
- Commanding officers are earnestly requested and expected
to exercise, without reference to these headquarters, their own
discretion in the adoption of any and all measures of warfare
coming within the provisions of this general order which will
tend to accomplish the desired results in the most direct way or
in the shortest possible space of time. They will also encourage
the younger officers of their commands to constantly look for,
engage, harass, and annoy the enemy in the field; and to this
end commanding officers will repose a large amount of confidence
in these subordinate officers, and will permit to them a large
latitude of action and a discretion similar to that herein
conferred upon the commanding officers of stations by these
- In dealing with the natives of all classes, officers will
be guided by the following principles:
- First. Every native, whether in arms or living in the
pueblos or barrios, will be regarded and treated as an enemy
until he has conclusively shown that he is a friend. This he
cannot do by mere words or promises, nor by imparting
information which, while true, is old or stale and of no value;
nor can it be done by aiding us in ways that do no material harm
to the insurgents. In short, the only manner in which the native
can demonstrate his loyalty is by some positive act or acts that
actually and positively commit him to us, thereby severing his
relations with the insurrectos and producing or tending to
produce distinctively unfriendly relations with the insurgents.
- Not only the ordinary natives, but especially those of
influence and position in the pueblos, who manifestly and openly
cultivate friendly relations with the Americans, will be
regarded with particular suspicion, since by the announced
policy of the insurgent government their ablest and most stanch
friends or those who are capable of most skillfully practising
duplicity are selected and directed to cultivate the friendship
of American officers, so as to obtain their confidence, and to
secretly communicate to the insurgents everything that the
Americans do or contemplate doing, particularly with regard to
the movement of troops. In a word, friendship for the Americans
on the part of any native will be measured directly and solely
by his acts; and neither sentiment nor social reasons of any
kind will be permitted to enter into the determination of such
- Second. It will be regarded as a certainty that all
officials of the pueblos and barrios are likewise officials of
Lukban and his officers, or at least that they are in actual
touch and sympathy with the insurgent leaders, and that they are
in secret aiding these leaders with information, supplies, etc.,
wherever possible. Officers will not be misled by the fact that
officials of the pueblos pass ordinances inimical to those in
insurrection, or by any action taken by them, either
collectively or individually. The public acts of pueblo councils
that are favorable to the Americans are usually negative by
secret communication on the part of the parties enacting them to
those in insurrection. Therefore, such acts cannot be taken as a
guide in determining the friendship or lack of it of these
officials for the American government.
- Third. The taking of the oath of allegiance by officials,
presidentes, vice-presidentes, consejeros, principales,
tenientes of barrios, or other people of influence, does not
indicate that they or any of them have espoused the American
cause, since it is a well-established fact that these people
frequently take the oath of allegiance with the direct object
and intent of enabling them to be of greater service to their
real friends in the field. In short, the loyalty of these people
is to be determined only by acts which, when combined with their
usual course of conduct, irrevocably binds them to the American
- Neutrality must not be tolerated on the part of any
native. The time has now arrived when all natives in this
brigade, who are not openly for us must be regarded as against
us. In short, if not an active friend, he is an open enemy.
- Fourth. The most dangerous class with whom we have to
deal is the wealthy sympathizer and contributor. This class
comprises not only all those officials and principales above
mentioned, but all those of importance who live in the pueblos
with their families. By far the most important as well as the
most dangerous member of this class is the native priest. He is
most dangerous; and he is successful because he is usually the
best informed, besides wielding an immense influence with the
people by virtue of his position. He has much to lose, in his
opinion, and but little to gain through American supremacy in
- It is expected that officers will exercise their best
endeavors to suppress and prevent aid being given by the people
of this class, especially by the native priests. Wherever there
is evidence of this assistance, or where there is a strong
suspicion that they are thus secretly aiding the enemies of our
government, they will be confined and held. The profession of
the priest will not prevent his arrest or proceedings against
him. If the evidence is sufficient, they will be tried by the
proper court. If there is not sufficient evidence to convict,
they will be arrested and confined as a military necessity, and
held as prisoners of war until released by orders from these
- It will be borne in mind that in these islands, as a
rule, it is next to impossible to secure evidence against men of
influence, and especially against the native priests, so long as
they are at large. On the other hand, after they are arrested
and confined, it is usually quite easy to secure abundant
evidence against them. Officers in command of stations will not
hesitate, therefore, to arrest and detain individuals whom they
have good reasons to suspect are aiding the insurrection, even
when positive evidence is lacking....
Others of his orders are counterparts of those issued by
General Bell, the phraseology being the same.
Here, then, were several great provinces placed under the
heel of two military officers, who started by assuming that the
entire population was hostile, who regarded the most friendly
behavior as especial evidence of hostility, who imparted their
suspicions to their subordinates, urged them to act without
consulting headquarters, and then began a campaign of
reconcentration, devastation, and extermination. The only evidence
of friendship that was to be accepted substantially was pointing
out guns or insurgents, and the natives were to be subject to what
General Bell calls once an "unsupportable" and once
Evidence thus obtained must be unreliable, as it always has
been in every age and every country; and
General Bell himself furnishes the proof in the following
Batangas, Jan. 9, 1902.
- To All Station Commanders
- Information reaching these headquarters indicates that
the hardship and pressure which has been placed upon the people
by the campaign has caused them, in seeking revenge or means of
self-defence, to resort to their well-known expedient of false
denunciation. Inasmuch as this custom is both a pernicious
nuisance and might become a serious impediment to the success of
military operations, commanding officers in the provinces of
Laguna will promptly bring to trial by provost court, for
conduct prejudicial to good order and military operations, any
person who makes a false denunciation, whenever it can be
established to the satisfaction of the commanding officer that
said false denunciation has been knowingly and viciously made
for purposes of revenge, of self-defence, of clouding the real
issue, of throwing discredit upon the transactions, motives, or
testimony of material witnesses, or for any other purpose.
- Inasmuch, however, as it is not intended to prevent or
discourage the making of legitimate complaints, commanding
officers will take great pains to investigate carefully and
bring no one to trial until it has been clearly ascertained that
they have made false denunciations knowingly and purposely, with
- Any kind of defiance of the government or disloyal
manifestations against measures adopted by it to put an end to
insurrection, in this brigade, will be suppressed at once. These
people must be taught the necessity for submission to the
legally constituted authority, and this can be properly done in
one way only, -- by firm and relentless repressive action.
J. F. Bell, Brigadier-general Commanding.
Who were the men who as commanding officers, or provost
courts, held absolute sway over thousands of men? They were
various subordinate officers, without judicial experience,
unfamiliar with the language of the witnesses, and with every
passion and prejudice inflamed against the people whom they were
set to govern or try by such orders from their superiors as have
This was carrying out
President McKinley's standing order that
- it should be the earnest and paramount aim of the
military administration to win the confidence, respect, and
affection of the inhabitants of the Philippines by assuring them
in every possible way that full measure of individual rights
which is the heritage of free peoples.
We have here concentration, devastation, the destruction of
food and dwellings wherever found outside the "protected zones,"
killing, and every feature of the most barbarous war.
How such orders appear in the execution may be gathered from
the following letter written to Senator Hoar by Clarence Clowe, of
Seattle, on June 10, 1900, at a time when we were supposed to be
pursuing "the magnanimous and benevolent policy" of which
General Bell speaks in his order of December 13, 1902. It was
about sixteen months after hostilities began.
- At any time I am liable to be called upon to go out and
bind and gag helpless prisoners, to strike them in the face, to
knock them down when so bound, to bear them away from wife and
children, at their very door, who are shrieking pitifully the
while, or kneeling and kissing the hands of our officers,
imploring mercy from those who seem not to know what it is, and
then, with a crowd of soldiers, hold our helpless victim head
downward in a tub of water in his own yard, or bind him hand and
foot, attaching ropes to head and feet, and then lowering him
into the depths of a well of water till life is well-nigh choked
out, and the bitterness of a death is tasted, and our poor,
gasping victims ask us for the poor boon of being finished off,
in mercy to themselves.
- All these things have been done at one time or another by
our men, generally in cases of trying to obtain information as
to the location of arms and ammunition.
- Nor can it be said that there is any general repulsion on
the part of the enlisted men to taking part in these doings. I
regret to have to say that, on the contrary, the majority of
soldiers take a keen delight in them, and rush with joy to the
making of this latest development of a Roman holiday.
Secretary Root approved all this. In his letter of May 7,
1902, to the president of the Senate, he says that the orders of
General Bell of December 8, December 9, and December 13, were
received by the department on January 17, 1902.
He says that these orders were "based upon," and were in
strict conformity both with the letter and spirit of these
the War Department saw no reason to doubt that the policy embodied
in the above-mentioned orders was at once the most effective and
the most humane which could possibly be followed; and so, indeed,
it has proved, since, as he says, the guerilla warfare in
Laguna and the adjacent regions has been ended, the authority
of the United States has been asserted and acquiesced in, and the
people who had been collected and protected in the camps of
concentration have been permitted to return to their homes and
resume their customary pursuits in peace.
Surely, an amazing sentence, when we remember that outside
the camps their homes had been burned, and their food and other
property destroyed or carried away in great part, if not wholly.
Can such "devastation" as
General Bell describes in his letter to
General Wheaton be carried out and any home worth having be
left? Literally, history repeats itself; and the American
Secretary of War "makes a solitude, and calls it peace."
Secretary Root continues:
- The War Department has not disapproved or interfered in
any way with the orders giving effect to this policy; but has
aided in their enforcement by directing an increase of food
supply to the Philippines for the purpose of caring for the
natives in the concentration camps.

THE FACTS-GUNDERSON PRISONER
BOXCARS WITH SHACKLES-A REPORT
Here is a summary of the
previous information circulating about Gunderson’s PRISONER
BOXCARS WITH SHACKLES from previous reports circulating all over
the nation on this subject, which I have written. BRENT
GUNDERSON is challenging my information. CAN YOU PROVE HIM
WRONG??? Many people have raised skeptical questions about
reports of prisoner BOXCARS AND SHACKLES being sighted across
America. Some people think that they are only reported
originally through Phil Schnieder in a Patriot interview.
Recently, someone erroneously reported that MY information on
them originated from Phil Schnieder.
WRONG! My research and
documentation on the boxcars and shackles goes far beyond Phil´s
interview. Long before I heard of him, I had eyewitness
information on these boxcars. A van full of eyewitnesses,
missionaries traveling across America to evangelize and pray,
stumbled across these boxcars in Montana, near Columbia Falls in
Glacier. They described boxcars, in this case painted black,
with shackles welded into them and a modern guillotine at the
head of each boxcar inside. As they were photographing mountain
scenery, they decided to follow railroad tracks into the
wilderness so as to not get lost. This is how they came upon
these boxcars with shackles. I later received a report from Lee
Harrington of Valier, MT, who was a professional metal worker.
He told me how in Glascow, MT, summer youth workers were
employed to weld shackles into boxcars in that operation. They
were then shipped west to Glacier and stored on remote
sidetracks. Passing through the Blackfoot Indian Reservation in
Cutbank, a local Blackfoot Indian, George Bullcalf, spotted
these strange boxcars. When I interviewed local Patriots in
Columbia Falls, they confirmed that hunters often stumbled upon
such boxcars on remote train spurs in that wilderness region.
I THEN TRAVELED TO PORTLAND
OREGON, and lectured in the home of an actual employee of
GUNDERSON STEEL FABRICATION. The wife of this high level
executive called this meeting personally to make a public
admission. In the meeting were OTHER GUNDERSON EMPLOYEES who had
witnessed the prisoner boxcars in the higher than normal, three
floor/three tier prisoner boxcars.
She admitted that her husband
finally told her that GUNDERSON WAS UNDER SECRET CONTRACT FROM
THE US GOVERNMENT TO PRODUCE THESE PRISONER BOXCARS. She also
admitted that Gunderson had a satellite factory for a boxcars
with shackles operation in Texas.
I called Col. Jim Ammerman in
Texas, famous military Patriot-lecturer against martial law, and
told him about this. He replied, “A friend of mine who is a
metal welder called me recently, and said he had gone to apply
for a job in offered in Texas for welding. When he was told that
it involved WELDING SHACKLES INTO BOXCARS, he declined the job!”
I later interviewed Russian
immigrants in this area who admitted that some of their people
were working at Gunderson, and one young man, Sasha, admitted
working on prisoner boxcars and described them completely to his
Russian Christian friends there. THE RUSSIAN COMMMUNITY NOW
KNOWS ABOUT THEM AND IS VERY AFRAID OF THE IMPLICATIONS!!! Many
Russians still work there.
Another source, WATCHDOG, a
retired military vet with a watchdog group, described yet
another boxcar with shackles operation in New Hampshire, with
three tiered boxcars fitted with shackles.
Metal worker Lee Harrington also
described 20,000 CHINESE prisoner boxcars with shackles and
modern guillotines, in the form of 40 foot railroad containers,
coming into America via the west coast. They were ordered by the
American government through a Senator who visited China and
ordered these items. Workers unloading them became suspicious
and began to investigate and discovered these horrors from
China. Such 40 foot cargo containers from China are now piled up
along the West Coast, especially around Long Beach Naval
Shipyard, turned over the Chinese. I receive constant reports
across America regarding these types of prisoner boxcars from
former radio listeners and Patriots across America…and Canada.
Recently, a former high level satanist from the mountains of
North Carolina, now a Christian and receiving discipleship,
admitted that boxcars with shackles were indeed in the mountains
of NC and waiting for the hour of martial law. (Asheville, NC)
He warned that many Patriots and Christians arrested and secured
into these prisoner boxcars under martial law will never even
make it to the death camps..that many will be tortured and
sacrificed once restrained in these prisoner boxcars.

WHAT IS MARTIAL LAW?
Constitutional Topic: Martial Law
The Constitutional Topics pages at the USConstitution.net site are
presented to delve deeper into topics than can be provided on the
Glossary Page or
in the FAQ pages.
This Topic Page concerns Martial Law. Martial law is not explicitly
mentioned in the Constitution, but the suspension of habeas corpus is
Article 1, Section 9, and the activation of the militia in time of
rebellion or invasion is mentioned in
Section 8. The Topic Page for
Justice may also be of interest.
The sources for this topic are, primarily, The Living U.S.

Cooperative Publishing, 1997); and ex parte Milligan, 71 US 2.
Note: please note the spelling of "martial law." A common mistake
is to spell it as "marshal law" or "marshall law." A "marshal" is a law
enforcement officer of, for example, the U.S. Marshal Service. There is
such a thing as a marshal, but no such thing as marshal law.
In strict dictionary terms, martial law is the
suspension of civil authority and the imposition of military authority.
When we say a region or country is "under martial law," we mean to say
that the military is in control of the area, that it acts as the police,
as the courts, as the legislature. The degree of control might vary - a
nation may have a civilian legislature but have the courts administered by
the military. Or the legislature and courts may operate under civilian
control with a military ruler. In each case, martial law is in effect,
even if it is not called "martial law."
Martial law should not be confused with
justice. In the United States, for example, each branch of the
military has its own judicial structures in place. Members of the service
are under the control of military law, and in some cases civilians working
for or with the military may be subject to military law. But this is the
normal course of business in the military. Martial law is the exception to
the rule. In the United States, the military courts were created by the
Congress, and cases can be appealed out of the military system to the
Supreme Court in many cases. In addition, a civilian court can petition
the military for habeas corpus.
Article 1, Section 9 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."
is a concept of law, in which a person may not be held by the government
without a valid reason for being held. A writ of habeas corpus can be
issued by a court upon a government agency (such as a police force or the
military). Such a writ compels the agency to produce the individual to the
court, and to convince the court that the person is being reasonably held.
The suspension of habeas corpus allows an agency to hold a person without
a charge. Suspension of habeas corpus is often equated with martial law.
Because of this connection of the two concepts, it is often argued
that only Congress can declare martial law, because Congress alone is
granted the power to suspend the writ. The President, however, is
commander-in-chief of the military, and it has been argued that the
President can take it upon himself to declare martial law. In these times,
Congress may decide not to act, effectively accepting martial law by
failing to stop it; Congress may agree to the declaration, putting the
official stamp of approval on the declaration; or it can reject the
President's imposition of martial law, which could set up a power struggle
between the Congress and the Executive that only the Judiciary would be
able to resolve.
In the United States, there is precedent for martial law. Several
times in the course of our history, martial law of varying degrees has
been declared. The most obvious and often-cited example was when President
Lincoln declared martial law during the Civil War. This instance provides
us with most of the rules for martial law that we would use today, should
the need arise.
ex parte Milligan
On September 15, 1863, Lincoln imposed Congressionally-authorized
martial law. The authorizing act allowed the President to suspend habeas
corpus throughout the entire United States. Lincoln imposed the suspension
on "prisoners of war, spies, or aiders and abettors of the enemy," as well
as on other classes of people, such as draft dodgers. The President's
proclamation was challenged in ex parte Milligan (71 US 2
). The Supreme Court ruled that Lincoln's imposition of martial law
(by way of suspension of habeas corpus) was unconstitutional.
In arguments before the Court, the counsel for the United States
spoke to the question of "what is martial law?" "Martial law," it was
argued, "is the will of the commanding officer of an armed force, or of a
geographical military department, expressed in time of war within the
limits of his military jurisdiction, as necessity demands and prudence
dictates, restrained or enlarged by the orders of his military chief, or
supreme executive ruler." In other words, martial law is imposed by a
local commander on the region he controls, on an as-needed basis. Further,
it was argued, "The officer executing martial law is at the same time
supreme legislator, supreme judge, and supreme executive. As necessity
makes his will the law, he only can define and declare it; and whether or
not it is infringed, and of the extent of the infraction, he alone can
judge; and his sole order punishes or acquits the alleged offender."
In this case, Lambden Milligan, for whom the case is named, was
arrested in Indiana as a Confederate sympathizer. Indiana, like the rest
of the United States, was part of a military district set up to help
conduct the war. Milligan was tried by military commission and sentenced
to die by hanging. After his conviction, Milligan petitioned the Circuit
Court for habeas corpus, arguing that his arrest, trial, and conviction
were all unconstitutional. What the Supreme Court had to decide, it said,
was "Had [the military commission] the legal power and authority to try
and punish [Milligan]?"
Resoundingly, the Court said no. The Court stated what is almost
painfully obvious: "Martial law ... destroys every guarantee of the
Constitution." The Court reminded the reader that such actions were taken
by the King of Great Britain, which caused, in part, the Revolution.
"Civil liberty and this kind of martial law cannot endure together; the
antagonism is irreconcilable; and, in the conflict, one or the other must
Did this mean that martial law could never be implemented? No, the
Court said. The President can declare martial law when circumstances
warrant it: When the civil authority cannot operate, then martial law is
not only constitutional, but would be necessary: "If, in foreign invasion
or civil war, the courts are actually closed, and it is impossible to
administer criminal justice according to law, then, on the theatre of
active military operations, where war really prevails, there is a
necessity to furnish a substitute for the civil authority, thus
overthrown, to preserve the safety of the army and society; and as no
power is left but the military, it is allowed to govern by martial rule
until the laws can have their free course. As necessity creates the rule,
so it limits its duration; for, if this government is continued after the
courts are reinstated, it is a gross usurpation of power. Martial rule can
never exist where the courts are open, and in the proper and unobstructed
exercise of their jurisdiction. It is also confined to the locality of
Examples of Martial Law
Through out United States history are several examples of the
imposition of martial law, aside from that during the Civil War.
During the war of 1812, General Andrew Jackson imposed martial law
within his encampment at New Orleans, which he had recently liberated.
Martial law was also imposed in a four mile radius around the camp. When
word came of the end of the war, Jackson maintained martial law,
contending that he had not gotten official word of the peace. A judge
demanded habeas corpus for a man arrested for sedition. Rather than comply
with the writ, Jackson had the judge arrested. After the civil authority
was restored, the judge fined Jackson $1000, which he paid, and for which
the Congress later reimbursed Jackson.
In 1892, at Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, rebellious mine workers blew up a
mill and shot at strike-breaking workers. The explosion leveled a
four-story building and killed one person. Mine owners asked the governor
to declare martial law, which he did. At the same time, a request was made
for federal troops to back guardsmen. Over 600 people were arrested. The
list was whittled down to two dozen ring leaders who were tried in civil
court. While in prison, the mine workers formed a new union, the Western
Federation of Miners.
In 1914, imposition of martial law climaxed the so-called Coal Field
Wars in Colorado. Dating back decades, the conflicts came to a head in
Ludlow in 1913. The Colorado National Guard was called in to quell the
strikers. For a time, the peace was kept, but it is reported that the
make-up of the Guard stationed at the mines began to shift from impartial
normal troops to companies of loyal mine guards. Clashes increased and the
proclamation of martial law was made by the governor. President Wilson
sent in federal troops, eventually ending the violence.
In 1934, California Governor Frank Merriam placed the docks of San
Francisco under martial law, citing "riots and tumult" resulting from a
dock worker's strike. The Governor threatened to place the entire city
under martial law. The National Guard was called in to open the docks, and
a city-wide institution of martial law was averted when goods began to
flow. The guardsmen were empowered to make arrests and to then try
detainees or turn them over to the civil courts.
Martial law and San Francisco were no strangers - following the
earthquake of 1906, the troops stationed in the Presidio were pressed into
service. Guards were posted throughout the city, and all dynamite was
confiscated. The dynamite was used to destroy buildings in the path of
fires, to prevent the fires from spreading. Troops were ordered to shoot
looters. Though there was never an official declaration of martial law,
the event is often cited as such. However, at all times it appears the
troops took their orders indirectly from the civil authority.
Though not a state at the time, Hawaii was placed under martial law
in 1941, following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Many of the
residents of Hawaii were, and are, of Asian descent, and the loyalty of
these people was called into question. After the war, the federal judge
for the islands condemned the conduct of martial law, saying, "Gov.
Poindexter declared lawfully martial law but the Army went beyond the
governor and set up that which was lawful only in conquered enemy
territory namely, military government which is not bound by the
Constitution. And they ... threw the Constitution into the discard and set
up a military dictatorship."
On 8/26/2005, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans was
placed under martial law after widespread flooding rendered civil
authority ineffective. The state of Louisiana does not have an actual
legal construct called "martial law," but instead something quite like it:
a state of public health emergency. The state of emergency allowed the
governor can suspend laws, order evacuations, and limit the sales of items
such as alcohol and firearms. The governor's order limited the state of
emergency, to end on 9/25/2005, "unless terminated sooner."
There have been many instances of the use of the military within the
borders of the United States, such as during the Whiskey Rebellion and in
the South during the civil rights crises, but these acts are not
tantamount to a declaration of martial law. The distinction must be made
as clear as that between martial law and military justice: deployment of
troops does not necessarily mean that the civil courts cannot function,
and that is one of the keys, as the Supreme Court noted, to martial law.
Martial law is the system of rules that takes effect when the
military takes control of the normal administration of justice.
Martial law is sometimes imposed during
occupations in the absence of any other civil government.
Examples of this form of military rule include Germany and Japan
after World War II or the American South during the early stages
Reconstruction. In addition it is used by governments to
enforce their rule, for example after a
coup d'état (Thailand
2006), when threatened by popular protests (Tiananmen
Square protests of 1989), or to crack down on the opposition (Poland
1981). Martial law can also be declared in cases of major
natural disasters; however most countries use a different
legal construct, such as a "state

curfew. Often, under this system, the administration of
justice is left to a military
tribunal, called a
court-martial. The suspension of the writ of
habeas corpus is likely to occur.

Thomas Brisbane imposed martial law in the
Bathurst region in 1824 in response to violent conflicts
between European settlers and the indigenous
Wiradjuri people led by
In Egypt, a
State of Emergency has been imposed almost continuously since
1967 A.D. Due to the assassination of
President Anwar el-Sadat in 1981, martial law was declared.
Egypt has been under martial law ever since - the Parliament has
renewed the emergency laws every three years since they were
imposed. The legislation was last extended in 2003 and was due to
expire at the end of May 2006; plans were in place to replace them
with new anti-terrorism laws but after the
Dahab bombings in April martial law was renewed for another

Martial law in India is different from rest of the world.
According to the Indian Constitution, during peacetime,
governmental and the people's interests are under the control of
the Prime Minister, Parliament, and the Supreme Court, but all
armed forces (except police, which are under the control of the
Home Ministry and the respective state governments) are under the
direct control of the Department of Defense and the President (who
also controls the national guard and paramilitary forces). In case
of a Emergency being declared in accordance with article 352 of
the Indian Constitution
 , all armed forces, reserve forces, and paramilitary
forces, along with the Department of Defence, come under the
strict orders of the President; while police, home ministry, law
department, and government comes under strict control of the
Prime Minister (without any intervention by Parliament and the
Supreme Court). In such a crisis, solving an issue/problem,
stabilizing the nation, and defense are considered higher
priorities than the people's interest. In this situation, the
Fundamental Rights may be suspended as well though in recent
years the Supreme Court has ruled that some of the rights may
never be suspended.
In case of an environmental crisis or a limited terrorist
attack or limited war, the Indian government declares states of
alert in the vicinity of the area in which the emergency relief
forces of the Indian Armed Forces, the Home Guard, and the police
are coordinated by the Government of India. However Fundamental
Rights are NOT suspended.
The British Indian Colonial Government declared martial law
many times in order to suppress the Indian freedom movement.

Military administrative government was in effect from 1949
to 1966 over some geographical areas of
Israel, which had large
populations, primarily the
Galilee, and the
Triangle. The residents of these areas were subject to a
number of controlling measures that amounted to martial law.
Permits from the military governor had to be procured to travel
more than a given distance from their registered place of
administrative detentions, and expulsions were common.
Though the military administration was officially for geographical
areas, and not people, its restrictions were seldom enforced on
the Jewish residents of these areas. In the 1950s, martial law
ceased to be in effect for those
Arab citizens living in predominantly-Jewish cities, but
remained in place in all Arab localities within Israel until 1966.
2006 Lebanon war, martial law was declared by Defense Minister
Amir Peretz over the North of the country. The
Israel Defense Forces were granted the authority to issue
instructions to civilians, and close down offices, schools, camps
and factories in cities considered under threat of attack, as well
as to impose curfews on cities in the North.
Instructions of the Home Front Command are obligatory under
martial law, rather than merely recommendatory.
The order signed by Peretz was in effect for 48 hours.
It was extended by the Cabinet and the Knesset Foreign Affairs and
Defense Committee over the war's duration.
Martial law has been declared in
Pakistan three times, though two times enforced under the name
of "state of emergency", by Musharraf, as constitution was
suspended. In the first instance President
Iskander Mirza abrogated the Constitution in 1958 and declared
Martial Law over the country. The second instance was when General
Yahya Khan declared martial law in March, 1969 after Mirza's
Ayub Khan handed over power to him. the 3rd by Gen Muhammad
Zia-ul-Haq. Another debatable instance was when
General Pervez Musharraf declared two times in the country
"State of Emergency" once to topple Nawaz Sharif and other under
thr self-created grounds i.e. mounting militant attacks and
"interference by members of the judiciary". See

After several tumultuous years, which witnessed the
East Pakistan, politician
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto took over in 1971 as the first civilian
martial law administrator in recent history, imposing selective
martial law in areas hostile to his rule, such as the country's
Balochistan. Following widespread
civil disorder, General
Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq overthrew Bhutto and imposed martial law
in its totality on July 5, 1977 in a bloodless
coup d'etat. Unstable areas were brought under control through
military action, such as Balochistan under Martial Law

Jose P. Laurel of the wartime Second Republic
(puppet-government under Japan) placed the Philippines under
martial law in 1944 through Proclamation No. 29, dated September
21. Martial law came into effect on September 22, 1944 at 9am.
Proclamation No. 30 was issued the next day, declaring the
existence of a state of war between the Philippines and the US and
Great Britain. This took effect on September 23, 1944 at 10am.
Philippines was under martial law again from 1972 to 1981
under the authoritarian rule of
Ferdinand Marcos. Martial law was declared to suppress
increasing civil strife and the threat of communist takeover
following a series of bombings in Manila. The declaration of
martial law was initially well-received by some segment of the
people but became unpopular as excesses and human rights abuses by
the military emerged. Torture was used in extracting information
from their enemies. Proclamation No. 1081 (Proclaiming a State of
Martial Law in the Philippines) was signed on September 21, 1972
and came into force on September 22 - interestingly enough exactly
28 years after President
Jose P. Laurel's similar proclamations.
There were rumours that President
Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was planning to impose martial law to
put an end to military coup plotters and general civilian
dissatisfaction and criticism of the legitimacy of her presidency
due to dubious election results. Instead, however, a "State of
National Emergency" was imposed to crush a coup plot and tackle
protesters which lasted from February 24, 2006 until March 3 of
the same year.
Martial law was introduced in
Communist Poland on
Czesław Kiszczak and

deaths are attributed to the martial law, including 9 miners shot
by the police during the pacification of striking

Polish society is divided in opinion on the necessity of
introduction of the martial law, which is viewed as a lesser evil
compared to alleged

There are no provisions for martial law as such in
Switzerland. Under the Army Law of 1995

This assistance generally requires parliamentary authorization,
though, and takes place in the regular legal framework and under
the civilian leadership of the cantonal authorities. On the other
hand, the federal authorities are authorized to use the Army to
enforce law and order when the Cantons no longer can or want to do
so (Ordnungsdienst). This power largely fell into disuse

The martial law concept in the U.S. is closely tied with the
habeas corpus, which is in essence the right to a hearing
on lawful imprisonment, or more broadly, the supervision of law
enforcement by the judiciary. The ability to suspend habeas corpus
is often equated with martial law. Article 1, Section 9 of the
U.S. 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."
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. The
Military Commissions Act of 2006 possibly rescinds these
limits by suspending habeas corpus, but the law is not clear on
whether it applies to U.S. Citizens. Since,
 has increased its direct involvement with civilian

the event that martial law threatens you safety and well being. It is
divided into two parts. The first part describes the framework for martial
law and the second part the actions to take in preparing for the actual
declaration of martial law.
SURVIVING MARTIAL LAW
- Martial law is defined as: military rule or authority imposed on
a civilian population when the civil authorities cannot maintain law and
order, as in a time of war or during an emergency.
- Hitler turned Germany into a Nazi dictatorship through executive
- Executive Order 10995: All communications media are to be seized
by the Federal Government. Radio, TV, newspapers, CB, Ham, telephones,
and the internet will be under federal control. Hence, the First
Amendment will be suspended indefinitely.
- Executive Order 10997: All electrical power, fuels, and all
minerals well be seized by the federal government.
- Executive Order 10998: All food resources, farms and farm
equipment will be seized by the government. You will not be allowed to
hoard food since this is regulated.
- Executive Order 10999: All modes of transportation will go into
government control. Any vehicle can be seized.
- Executive Order 11000: All civilians can be used for work under
- Executive Order 11490: Establishes presidential control over all
US citizens, businesses, and churches in time of "emergency."
- Executive Order 12919: Directs various Cabinet officials to be
constantly ready to take over virtually all aspects of the US economy
during a State of National Emergency at the direction of the president.
- Executive Order 13010: Directs FEMA to take control over all
government agencies in time of emergency. FEMA is under control of
executive branch of the government.
- Executive Order 12656: "ASSIGNMENT OF EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS
RESPONSIBILITIES", "A national emergency is any occurrence, including
natural disaster, military attack, technological emergency, or other
emergency that seriously degrades or seriously threatens the national
security of the United States. Policy for national security emergency
preparedness shall be established by the President." This order includes
federal takeover of all local law enforcement agencies, wage and price
controls, prohibits you from moving assets in or out of the United
States, creates a draft, controls all travel in and out of the United
States, and much more.
- Martial law can be declared due to natural disasters, Y2k Crisis,
Stock Market crash, no electricity, riots, biological attack, ....
anything leading to the breakdown of law and order.
- Prepare before any declaration of martial law by becoming self
reliant. You may become subject to a bureaucratic system and be prepared
to stay one step ahead of it which is easy to do if you are prepared and
in a position to be self reliant. You may also face mob rule, chaos,
panic, or a complete breakdown in law and order. Surival situations may
be easier to handle in rural areas than urban.
- Avoid areas of marital law. Can be imposed due to natural
disasters or man caused events. Important to have a retreat or place in
a rural area away from populated areas.
- Create alliances with like minded neighbors or community members
that share your views. Team work and numbers may help your situation.
- Become transparent in the sense that you do not draw attention to
yourself or your family. For instance, do not tell people that you are
storing food just store food. Be prepared to render assistance to
neighbors if need be. You never know when you will need them.
- Remain calm! Do not panic.
- Avoid areas of civil unrest if possible. If caught in
take appropriate action.
- Get informed and stay informed. Understand martial law can be a
temporary crisis or an extended one. In extreme cases the shape of a
whole nation can change.
- Declaration of martial law means your rights are suspended and it
is government by decree. Your constitutional rights may no longer apply.
This could mean a state of National Emergency.
- People can be arrested and imprisoned indefinitely without
- Freedom of speech and freedom of assembly can be suspended, and
censorship of the media imposed.
- Gun ownership will also come under severe attack during marital
law. We could see house to house searches by the military or National
Guard looking for guns and seizing any they find along with stored food.
- Take a stand on issues and make a choice that fits your beliefs
and the situation. Do you believe as Patrick Henry, "Give me liberty or
give me death?" Realize you may have some hard choices to make.
Understand you may have to sacrifice your principles on trivial matters
or take a hard stand. Always remember that you may have to come back and
fight another day.
Obama highlights plan for
Sen. Barack Obama
on Wednesday unveiled a plan to create volunteer and
service opportunities to help tackle some of the
nation's most pressing issues, part of his weeklong
focus on patriotism and national service.
Sen. Barack Obama is expected to say President
Bush failed to urge Americans to serve their
nation after 9/11.
"This won't be a
call issued in one speech or one program -- I want this
to be a central cause of my presidency," Obama said in a
speech at the University of Colorado in Colorado
"We will ask
Americans to serve. We will create new opportunities for
Americans to serve. And we will direct that service to
our most pressing national challenges."
He added, "When
you choose to serve -- whether it's your nation, your
community or simply your neighborhood -- you are
connected to that fundamental American ideal that we
want life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness not just
for ourselves, but for all Americans. That's why it's
called the American dream."
his time as a community organizer on Chicago's South
Side and his stint heading Project Vote, a group that
helped register 150,000 new African-American voters in
the Illinois city, according to his campaign.
"I wasn't just
helping other people. Through service, I found a
community that embraced me; citizenship that was
meaningful; the direction I'd been seeking. Through
service, I discovered how my own improbable story fit
into the larger story of America," he said.
Democratic presidential nominee also touched on the
"spirit" of service witnessed after the September 11,
2001, attacks and take aim at the Bush administration's
failure to capitalize on this opportunity to call
Americans to service.
"We were ready to
step into the strong current of history and to answer a
new call for our country. But the call never came," he
"Instead of a call
to service, we were asked to shop. ... Instead of
leadership that called us to come together, we got
patriotism defined as the property of one party and used
as a political wedge ... we ended up going into a war
that should have never been authorized and should have
never been waged."
Obama also pressed
the need to "ease the burden on our troops, while
meeting the challenges of the 21st century" -- a plan he
hopes will increase ground forces by 65,000 soldiers and
Obama's campaign, the service plan will include:
AmeriCorps to 250,000 slots and doubling the size of the
service-learning programs into schools and universities
service opportunities for working Americans and
initiatives that "engage disadvantaged young people and
advance their education";
capacity of nonprofit groups to innovate and expand
successful programs across the country; and
Americans to serve in the armed forces.

John McCain also has touched on national service
with a call to action on his campaign Web site.
In a section
entitled "A Cause Greater Than Self," the presumptive
GOP nominee asks Americans to donate their time to
relief efforts -- including helping out in the
flood-ravaged areas of Iowa.

Legislation intensifies fears about Obama’s
civilian national security force
Paul Joseph Watson
Thursday, March 19, 2009
The House passed a bill yesterday which includes disturbing
language indicating young people will be forced to undertake
mandatory national service programs as fears about President
Barack Obama’s promised “civilian national security force”
Generations Invigorating Volunteerism
and Education Act, known as the GIVE Act, was passed
yesterday by a 321-105 margin and now goes to the Senate.
Under section 6104 of the
bill, entitled “Duties,” in subsection B6, the legislation states
that a commission will be set up to investigate, “Whether a
workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service
requirement for all able young people could be developed, and how
such a requirement could be implemented in a manner that would
strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic
challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic,
ethnic, and educational backgrounds.”
Section 120 of the bill also
discusses the “Youth Engagement Zone Program” and states that
“service learning” will be “a mandatory part of the
curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local
“The legislation, slated to
cost $6 billion over five years, would create 175,000 “new service
opportunities” under AmeriCorps, bringing the number of
participants in the national volunteer program to 250,000. It
would also create additional “corps” to expand the reach of
volunteerism into new sectors, including a Clean Energy Corps,
Education Corps, Healthy Futures Corps and Veterans Service Corps,
and it expands the National Civilian Community Corps to focus on
additional areas like disaster relief and energy conservation,”
reports Fox News.
The Senate is also considering a similar piece of
legislation known as the
“Serve America Act,” which
also includes language about “Youth Engagement Zones”.
Fears about Obama’s
plans to create involuntary servitude were first stoked in
July 2008, when Obama told a rally in Colorado Springs,
“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to
achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve
got to have a civilian national security force that is
just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”
Despite denials that
Obama plans to institute a mandatory program of national
his original change.gov
website stated that Americans would be
“required” to complete “50 hours of community service in
middle school and high school and 100 hours of community
service in college every year”. The text was only later
changed to state that Americans would be “encouraged” to
undertake such programs.
In addition, Obama’s
Chief of Staff,
Rahm Emanuel, publicly stated
his intention to help create “universal civil defense
training” in 2006.
“The bill’s opponents
— and there are only a few in Congress — say it could cram
ideology down the throats of young “volunteers,” many of
whom could be forced into service since the bill creates a
“Congressional Commission on Civic Service,” reports Fox.
“We contribute our
time and money under no government coercion on a scale the
rest of the world doesn’t emulate and probably can’t
imagine,” said Luke Sheahan, contributing editor for the
Family Security Foundation. “The idea that government
should order its people to perform acts of charity is
contrary to the idea of charity and it removes the
responsibility for charity from the people to the
government, destroying private initiative.”
Lee Cary of the
conservative American Thinker warns that Obama’s agenda is
to, “tap into the already active volunteerism of millions
of Americans and recruit them to become cogs in a gigantic
government machine grinding out his social re-engineering
CFR luminary Gary
Hart hit back at critics, claiming in a Huffington Post
piece that, “Resistance to expanded public service
programs can be expected from the ideologically sclerotic,
those who occupy the negative ground between government as
the problem and government as our enemy.”
prospect of Obama’s mandatory government servitude is
covered in-depth in Alex Jones’ new documentary
blockbuster, The Obama Deception.

COMMENTS ON OBAMA'S VOLUNTEER PROGRAM
« Times watch: Frey and Cooper in Dust-Up and on radio |
More than you wanted to know (or imagine) about Laura Bush »
Plenty of blogospheric blowback and some applause
for Jonah Goldberg's column today on Barack Obama's
national service proposal. First, from
There's a weird irony at work when Sen. Barack
Obama, the black presidential candidate who will
allegedly scrub the stain of racism from the nation,
vows to run afoul of the constitutional amendment
that abolished slavery.
For those who don't remember, the 13th Amendment
says: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude,
except as a punishment for crime ... shall exist
within the United States" ....
speech on national service Wednesday at the
University of Colorado, Obama promised that as
president he would "set a goal for all American
middle and high school students to perform 50 hours
of service a year, and for all college students to
perform 100 hours of service a year."
He would see that these goals are met by, among
other things, attaching strings to federal education
dollars. If you don't make the kids report for duty,
he's essentially telling schools and college kids,
you'll lose money you can't afford to lose. In
short, he'll make service compulsory by merely
compelling schools to make it compulsory.
Wonkette's reaction: "Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
dumb dumb." Continued:
one “dumb” for each paragraph of Jonah Goldberg’s
Los Angeles Times column today. For the
record, we did not expect it to be “good,” in the
traditional sense — we didn’t expect to read it at
all! But 18 paragraphs of unmitigated “dumb” has a
strangely magnetic appeal during this lazy news
season. So let’s check out Jonah’s column, in which
he argues that Obama’s plan to offer educational aid
as a reward for national service is somehow both (a)
welfare and (b) slavery....
He adds, many dumb paragraphs later, the
following: “No, national service isn’t slavery. But
it contributes to a slave mentality, at odds with
American tradition.” Since when is the “slave
mentality” at odds with the American tradition, past
More reaction to Goldberg's June 8
column after the jump.
Jesse Taylor at Pandagon, whose proprietor Amanda
Marcotte was in a
Times Dust-Up last month:
There is one benefit to Goldberg’s idiotic
penchant for selling every point he makes with the
most offensively wrong analogy possible - he’s about
75% of the way towards Ann Coulter’s flameout into
utter irrelevance, and he’s only published one book.
This accusation is because Barack Obama
proposes a program of national service. And after
building up a case for national service as slavery
that had never been done with such care, what does
he end the piece with?
No, national service isn’t slavery.
The main reason he has to admit this is
because he lapses awkwardly into a discussion of how
both John McCain and George W. Bush support such
programs, meaning that we’re either headed for a
nation run by plantation bosses who want us to fetch
the national lemonade, or his actual point - that
national service offends his ethic of receiving
ideological welfare for his hard work of being born
and not drinking industrial cleaner instead of
Gatorade. Really, dude, stop storing them next to
Outside the Beltway's Alex Knapp agrees with
Goldberg's larger point on national service but faults
him for "bad rhetoric." Excerpt:
Most of the outrage directed
at this column deals directly with [Goldberg's first
two paragraphs]. And, frankly, I do think that
Goldberg did employ some bad rhetoric here. But it’s
bad rhetoric used to make an excellent point.
Namely, that there’s something un-American about
compulsory national service....
Now, Obama’s plan, like most
plans of this type, doesn’t outright mandate that
all students perform national service. It merely
makes such service a condition for federal education
dollars. So in a technical sense, these types of
plans probably don’t run afoul of the 13th
Amendment. But they’re still pretty appalling, and I
think that Goldberg does make an excellent point....
Look, if a kid wants to spend
50 hours a year volunteering at a soup kitchen or
building a house for habitat for humanity, then more
power to him. If she wants to spend that time
playing video games or basketball, or even *gasp!*
holding down a part-time job well, that’s her
choice, too. The point of America is that you got to
make the choice about what you want to do with your
life, not have some bureaucrat decide for you.
Clunky prose aside, I think
that Goldberg was dead on in condemning compulsory
service. It’s an antiquated, un-American notion that
should by no means make its way into federal law.
Scorn from Obsidian Wings:
Maybe in the schools Jonah Goldberg attended,
they didn't require things like homework, or
attendance, or reading, or math. It would explain a
For the rest of us, though, there have always
been lots of compulsory things in schools. If this
counts as slavery, children have been enslaved since
compulsory schooling began.
I can't wait for Jonah Goldberg's sudden
discovery that some children are told -- told!!
-- to clean their rooms.

Obama's New "Corps" And Other Service Programs.
Senator Barack Obama is proposing to
remake American society in a way that the American public does
not yet understand.
In his July 2, 2008, speech calling Americans to national
service, Obama departed from his prepared remarks to announce
his support for a mysteriously named “civilian national security
We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to
achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've
got to have a civilian national security force that's just as
powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.
Many commentators were stumped. What is this “civilian
national security force” that must be as well funded as the
military? Is it merely our existing civilian national security
force, the militia, or perhaps the FBI and the CIA? Or was Obama
referring to some thuggish new paramilitary street organization?
The answer to this mystery is not hidden. It is prominently
displayed in Obama’s
speeches and in the
position papers on his website. Obama is referring, neither
to the militia nor to a reincarnation of the Brownshirts, but
rather to his unprecedented plans for universal community
service for young people and for hugely increased funding for a
myriad of voluntary service programs for the rest of us.
Earlier posts dealt with mandatory service for
high school students, voluntary service for
college students, and college “Serve-Study” laid out in
Obama’s speeches and his “Plan for Universal Voluntary Citizen
Service.” This post covers his other service programs.
A. Green Job Corps, YouthBuild Program
Although Obama’s education proposals would effectively reach
over 90% of the 47 million middle, high, and college students in
the country (perhaps leaving out only private secondary school
children), what about the 2 million young people who are out of
school and unemployed or in prison? To reach young prisoners and
the young unemployed, Obama will add a new Green Job Corps,
“an energy-focused youth jobs program,” and expand by six-fold
the YouthBuild Program, which teaches housing
construction to low-income youth.
B. AmeriCorps VISTA, Experience Corps, Senior Corps
What about the middle-aged and older Americans not covered by
these programs for the young? Obama plans to enlist retirees in
his civilian national security force “on a large scale” and to
expand service programs for baby-boomers and the elderly:
AmeriCorps VISTA, the Experience Corps, and other
Senior Corps programs.
C. Classroom Corps, Health Corps, Clean Energy Corps,
Veterans Corps, Homeland Security Corps, Peace Corps, Global
Among other “transformative” community service proposals,
Obama will more than triple the number of full-time
AmeriCorps members to 250,000 and distribute these new
members among five new “Corps”:
1. a Classroom Corps for teachers and students;
2. a Health Corps to improve public health;
3. a Clean Energy Corps to conduct weatherization and
renewable energy projects;
4. a Veterans Corps to assist veterans at
5. a Homeland Security Corps to deal with emergencies.
Not only will “Barack Obama . . . double the Peace Corps
to 16,000 by its 50th anniversary in 2011 and push Congress
to fully fund this expansion,” but he will create a "Global
Energy Corps to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions
overseas and promote low-carbon and affordable energy solutions
in developing nations.”
Barack Obama is proposing so many new “Corps” that he runs
out of distinctive names for them. Note that his new Global
Energy Corps is not to be confused with his new Clean
Energy Corps and his new Green Job Corps.
D. Social Investment Fund Network, Social Entrepreneurship
Agency for Nonprofits, Corporation for National and Community
But Obama is far from finished:
Barack Obama will create a Social Investment Fund Network,
. . . a government-supported nonprofit corporation, similar to
the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, that will use federal
seed money to leverage private sector funding to improve local
innovation, test the impact of new ideas and expand successful
programs to scale.
He promises us that this new corporation will not be just a
single entity, but it will involve “a network of funds.”
That’s not all; he’s going to create a “Social
Entrepreneurship Agency for Nonprofits”:
Note the tone of these proposals: none of this false modesty
about proposing these new agencies and Corps to Congress and
working for their passage. His Plan simply declares: “Barack
Obama will create” this; “Barack Obama will create” that.
Barack Obama will a create an agency within the
Corporation for National and Community Service dedicated
to building the capacity and effectiveness of the nonprofit
All these programs are just the ones listed on the service
pages of his campaign website. This list doesn’t include his
most expensive program: health care. All these add up to the
biggest expansion of the US government since FDR. If Obama gets
most of what he wants, he will make libertarians look more
fondly on the relatively modest proposals of Lyndon Johnson and
Obama's Corps mania sounds like someone copied a page from
the Onion and mistakenly posted it to his campaign
website. Sorry, Obamanics, but your candidate is stark
raving mad if he thinks the American people want a chicken
in every pot and a Corps on every corner.

It had been predicted that Hawaii would be hit by at least one missile on
July 4th. Either North Korea couldn't get their missiles that far,
or they didn't try - which was it?
N. Korea Fires 7
Missiles Off Eastern Coast
North Korea Saturday fired seven ballistic missiles
off its eastern coast over a stretch of several hours, violating the
U.N. sanctions and sending an apparent message of defiance to the
United States which commemorated its Independence Day.
"North Korea fired two missiles toward the East Sea from the
Gitdaeryong base near Wonsan, Gangwon Province, between 8:00 a.m. and
8:30 a.m. today. And it fired another one into the East Sea from the
same site around 10:45 a.m.," Yonhap reported citing an official at
the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).
All the missiles are estimated to have a range of 400-500km, covering
the entire South Korea within the target range.
South Korea's foreign ministry lashed out at the reclusive neighbor's
ballistic missile launch, calling it a clear violation of U.N.
Security Council resolutions that ban the communist nation from any
activity related to a ballistic missile program.
"It is a provocative act that clearly violates U.N. Security Council
resolutions 1695, 1718, and 1874 that bar North Korea's every activity
related to ballistic missiles," the ministry said in a statement.
"The government expresses deep regret over North Korea's continued
acts to escalate tensions in Northeast Asia in ignorance of the U.N.
Security Council resolutions and urges North Korea to faithfully
implement the resolutions," it added.
The launches came two days after North Korea fired four short-range
cruise missiles and will likely ramp up the already charged tension in
the region as Washington tries to solicit support for strict
enforcement of the U.N. sanctions on Pyongyang for its nuclear test in
The official said the North shot three more missiles from the same
site at around noon, at 2:50 p.m. and at 4:10 p.m., adding the
military is analyzing the exact type of the missiles and North Korea's
The authorities said the missiles are apparently ballistic ones,
probably a Scud type, given the trajectory and flight distances. But
they did not rule out the possibility that what the North fired might
have actually been Rodong missiles, a modification of Scud missiles.
The North is believed to have about 1,000 ballistic missiles alone ―
including nearly 700 Scud missiles of various types and 320 Rodong
Previously, North Korea test-fired a long-range Taepodong-2 missile,
along with several short-and mid-range missiles, on U.S. Independence
Day in 2006.
