September 29, 2008
In a “hot” new video http://it.youtube.com/watch?v=l7B4laX1E70 appearing on YouTube, Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) stated “I understand we are under Martial Law, as declared by the speaker last night”
Whilst this is something that you might expect the speaker (Nanci Pelosi) to declare and the Bush administration to desire, Mr. Burgess was hopefully using the term “Martial Law” in a figurative manner, in order to express his disgust (and that of many others) at the way in which this “bailout” deal is being conducted.
George Bush has created many new executive orders during his term, enabling him to introduce Martial Law for a variety of reasons: A terrorist attack, civil disturbances, Flu outbreaks, weather related disasters and more. It is not impossible that he could declare the current financial crisis as a “National Disaster”.
However, the real problem lies with the Federal Reserve and the power they have to control the United States (and many other institutions around the world), including the political system of course…….
