“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” (Obama’s first chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel.)
A provable corollary to that would be, “If you create a serious enough crisis, you can implement your most aggressive plans with impunity. ” If you cannot believe that, search “Reichstag, 1933”.
“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’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” (Obama, 2008).
The scary part is that Obama’s civilian army is now armed to the teeth, and they have armored vehicles and aircraft. There are now 73 federal agencies that have armed individuals. How much do you trust a bureaucrat to do the right thing?
As of October 2013, 197 field grade or higher military officers had been fired by Obama for a laundry list of infractions that can be boiled down to disagreeing with Obama on any subject. Obama is changing our military to be a tool to implement martial law. He first must remove any commanders that might refuse to fire on American citizens or that believe the Constitution is above Obama.
If he is successful with his overrunning of the Southern border by illegals, if terrorists capitalize on the open border and nuke an American city, if our power grid goes down due to an EMP or CME … You name the crisis, Obama will provide the martial law. After that, it’s Emperor Obama.
