Dr. Edwin Vieira on Martial Law

Dr. Vieira is the author of Crashmaker, a novel on how to crash the Federal Reserve system. A libertarian president ruins the government and takes back America.

It is difficult these days not to come upon some pessimistic patriotic commentator expressing the fear that something called “martial law” may soon be imposed on this country, as the General Government’s response to a new “terrorist attack”, or to the economic and social chaos arising out of a collapse of the monetary and banking systems, or to some other dire event that frightens hapless Americans into trading a sure and certain loss of their liberties for a dollop of conjectural safety.

An optimistic patriot might scoff at such fears. But both pessimists and optimists typically share the same implicit first premise: namely, that the form of “martial law” they have in mind is legitimate. Most of the time, this is a rather glaring and dangerous error.

In legal analysis, definitions of terms make all the difference. And “martial law” can be defined in at least four ways:

·First, the term could denote the law that Congress may enact for governance of the Armed Forces and “the Militia of the several States”. This kind of “martial law” is plainly legitimate, because the Constitution delegates to Congress the powers “[t]o make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces” and “[t]o provide * * * for governing such Part of the[ Militia of the several States] as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States, respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress”. [U.S. Const. art. I, § 8, cls. 14 and 16.] With respect to “the land and naval Forces” such “martial law” applies at all times. With respect to the Militia, it applies only when the latter have been “call[ed] forth * * * to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”. [U.S. Const. art. I, § 8, cl. 15.] With respect to everyone else, though, it applies not at all. This absolute separation the Fifth Amendment confirms: “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger”. “Martial law” (in this first sense), which may (but need not necessarily) dispense with “Grand Jur[ies]”, applies only to “the land and naval forces” and to the Militia in time of “War” (“repel[ling] Invasions”) or “public danger” (“execut[ing] the Laws of the Union” and “suppress[ing] Insurrections”), and to no one else.

It would be clearer, though, not to describe these matters as involving “martial law, but instead to refer to them with particularity (as the Constitution does) as, say, “rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces” and “rules for governing part of the Militia under certain conditions”. Then their application only to individuals in the Armed Forces (at all times and everywhere) and in the Militia (when “call[ed] forth” for the three constitutional purposes)—and their inapplicability to anyone else at any time, anywhere, for any reason—would immediately and always be beyond cavil.

Throw All Career Politicians out of Washington!

Needless to say this idea really appeals to me. In New Hampshire they pay their politicians $100 per year. In Washington, unfortunately the concept of a politician as a public servant is non-existent. What happens is that a Congressional seat is seen as a Win for Life lotto ticket. You get every un-ethical bastard running for office. The worst part is that your congressman gets a lifetime pension for being in Congress, get this for one day. This is criminal, so yes let's vote out the creeps.
Throw out All Career Politicians Energetic balancing program that removes fear and negativity.

Rand Paul runs for Senate Seat in Kentucky Webster Hall NYC

There were over 200 people to hear Rand Paul and Peter Schiff, mostly new faces and young. The venue was a former club owned by Al Capone. Nick Spanos the force behind the Ron Paul movement in New York last year hosted the event. Rand Paul needs some work as a public speaker. His message is kinda of bland, he is still in his father's shadow. For him to become successful, he needs to create his own identity and become better than his father as a communicator, if he expects to have any real impact.
