Observations Supporting Existence of The Perpetual State of Martial Law

As often discussed by my very good friend Hal Anthony in his weekly podcast (http://www.reallibertymedia.com/2013/04/behind-the-woodshed-podcasts/) here is some food for thought in support of the contention that the United States exists under the provisions of continuous martial law:

“THERE WAS NO TREATY SIGNED TO END THE CIVIL WAR. The surrender at Appomattox Court House was a military surrender of an army which was surrounded. THE CONFEDERATE GOVERNMENT NEVER SURRENDERED and even had it wanted to the United States government would likely not have accepted. To do so would have legally acknowledged the existence of the Confederate States of America and would have legitimized it and given it certain legal status internationally. Treaties are between two nations and the U.S. would never concede the legal existence of the Confederacy – EVEN THOUGH IT HAD A GOVERNMENT, ARMIES, TAXES AND ALL THE TRAPPINGS OF A MODERN GOVERNMENT.” (emphasis added)

and, “Article 1 (General Orders No. 100 : The Lieber Code)

“A PLACE, DISTRICT, OR COUNTRY OCCUPIED BY AN ENEMY STANDS, IN CONSEQUENCE OF THE OCCUPATION, UNDER THE MARTIAL LAW OF THE INVADING OR OCCUPYING ARMY, WHETHER ANY PROCLAMATION DECLARING MARTIAL LAW OF THE INVADING OR OCCUPYING ARMY, WHETHER ANY PROCLAMATION DECLARING MARTIAL LAW, OR ANY PUBLIC WARNING TO THE INHABITANTS, HAS BEEN ISSUED OR NOT. Martial Law is the immediate and direct effect and consequence of occupation or conquest.

“THE PRESENCE OF A HOSTILE ARMY PROCLAIMS ITS MARTIAL LAW.

“Art. 2.

“MARTIAL LAW DOES NOT CEASE DURING THE HOSTILE OCCUPATION, EXCEPT BY SPECIAL PROCLAMATION, ORDERED BY THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF; OR BY SPECIAL MENTION IN THE TREATY OF PEACE CONCLUDING THE WAR, when the occupation of a place or territory continues beyond the conclusion of peace as one of the conditions of the same.

“Art. 3.

“Martial Law in a hostile country consists in the suspension, by the occupying military authority, of the criminal and civil law, and of the domestic administration and government in the occupied place or territory, and in the substitution of military rule and force for the same, as well as in the dictation of general laws, as far as military necessity requires this suspension, substitution, or dictation.

“THE COMMANDER OF THE FORCES MAY PROCLAIM THAT THE ADMINISTRATION OF ALL CIVIL AND PENAL LAW SHALL CONTINUE EITHER WHOLLY OR IN PART, AS IN TIMES OF PEACE, unless otherwise ordered by the military authority.” (emphasis added)

One thought on “Observations Supporting Existence of The Perpetual State of Martial Law

  1. Hey Gary… Article 6 also takes the real government away and replaces it with a look-alike. This is not so different that when Pagan customs were instituted so as to make Christianity more tasty to pagans. Keep the religion of the constitution as if it still applies in the military occupied states, so the de facto is more tasty to constitutionalists. My favorite example of this permenant state of martial law (military rule) is from the Nevada State Constitution. It proves to me that war is peace. It states in Section 2:

    “Sec: 2.  Purpose of government; paramount allegiance to United States.  All political power is inherent in the people[.] Government is instituted for the protection, security and benefit of the people; and they have the right to alter or reform the same whenever the public good may require it. But the Paramount Allegiance of every citizen is due to the Federal Government in the exercise of all its Constitutional powers as the same have been or may be defined by the Supreme Court of the United States; and no power exists in the people of this or any other State of the Federal Union to dissolve their connection therewith or perform any act tending to impair[,] subvert, or resist the Supreme Authority of the government of the United States. The Constitution of the United States confers full power on the Federal Government to maintain and Perpetuate its existance [existence], and whensoever any portion of the States, or people thereof attempt to secede from the Federal Union, or forcibly resist the Execution of its laws, the Federal Government may, by warrant of the Constitution, employ armed force in compelling obedience to its Authority.”

    You’ll also want to read the “Proclamations of Peace” that were actually created, which again basically say that we will kill you again if you get out of line: Texas was the last to fall… http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=71992https://www.tsl.texas.gov/ref/abouttx/secession/20aug1866.html
