Can Trump Declare Martial Law? | | Matthew Kyle Webb

The only legal use of martial law recognized by the United States is to restore and maintain peace during civil unrest or invasion. Even then, the use of military power is limited that which is required to keep order.

Words and preconceptions matter. When we do not understand what limits the government is under, we cannot recognize when our government has become illegal and unconstitutional.At this moment, by the laws of the United States, Trump is legally our president. You may hate him, but his government is not unconstitutional. And that makes violent rebellion or insurrection against him illegal and unjustified by the rule of law.

Read and spread this article, and others like it. It is important that citizens understand that even in states of emergency and insurrection, the President has limits on his power. And if Trump flaunts those restrictions, we need to know it and see it as breaking the law of the land. If more people understand what he is allowed and not allowed to do, more people will join with you in standing up to it if he crosses the line into dictatorship. Peacefully, one hopes, but violently if necessary. The Founding Fathers viewed the overthrow of an illegal government as a right and duty of all patriots.

At the same time, make sure to separate in your mind the line between a corrupt, incompetent and unpopular presidency, and a truly illegal one. Trump’s administration may be the former, but it is not the latter yet. But if you think this first week is bad, imagine if the President learned that he could move completely outside the law without being held accountable.

Of course, Trump is not going to follow ‘normal’ laws, just as he did not agree to follow international laws and treaties, which he has broken or pulled out of. If Trump declares martial law, he has to follow the Constitution and be governed by the same laws and Constitution that everyone has agreed to abide by. If he does not do that, he deserves the consequences of it, but it is up to the people, the courts, the military and politicians to firmly tell him that, or show him that he cannot get away with an unbridled, out of control grab for power, via unconstitutional means or methods.

Executive orders are not the Constitution. Power granted by an executive order can be unconstitutional. Even a Supreme Court cannot put a President in power for life because that too would be unconstitutional.

Either the US is governed and controlled by the Constitution, or it is run by a despotic, tyrannical dictator. It cannot be both. This is a time of choosing.

Choose wisely.

martial law trump Bill Johnson‎Yes, some Republican lawmakers did raise their voices to denounce Trump’s interactions with Putin, or at least express confidence in American intelligence agencies. But these were mere words — too little, too late. They are complicit in Trump’s Russian complicity, his base, possibly criminal, flirtation.The president is not done.

Soon, there may be indictments from Robert Mueller, the special counsel, of high officials or members of Trump’s family. What then? Ornstein’s nightmare scenario: Trump fires Mueller, pardons himself and everyone else, sends his followers into the street, and, after the inevitable bloodshed, declares martial law.

U.S. Stocks Fall as Dollar Gains; FANG Boosts Tech: Markets Wrap – Bloomberg

Most U.S. equities fell, with financial and commodity shares pacing losses as an overnight rally in Asian equities failed to hold ahead of a spate of key earnings reports this week. The dollar rose to the highest level in two months.

More than three stocks fell for every two that rose in the S&P 500 Index, with banks tumbling the most. Energy producers slumped more than 1 percent as crude traded at a five-week low. The FANG cohort lifted tech-heavy Nasdaq indexes ahead of a spate of megacap earnings later this week. Earlier, the Shanghai Composite Index surged the most since March 2016 in the wake of verbal interventions from authorities.

Ford Ratchets Up Rebuke of Trump Tariffs as Steel Costs Rise – Bloomberg

Ford Ratchets Up Rebuke of Trump Tariffs as Steel Costs Rise – Bloomberg

“U.S. steel costs are more than anywhere else in the world,” Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of global operations, said Monday at an event marking the start of Ranger pickup production at a factory west of Detroit. He added that Ford is talking to the administration about the tariffs: “We tell them that we need to have competitive costs in our market in order to compete around the world.”

Ford Chief Executive Officer Jim Hackett last month called on President Donald Trump’s administration to resolve trade disputes quickly, warning that they would otherwise do more damage to the second-largest American automaker. He said the company sustained a roughly $1 billion hit to profit despite the fact that it sources most of its metals from the U.S.

How the man behind Khashoggi murder ran the killing via Skype | Reuters

As the crisis has grown over the past three weeks, Saudi Arabia has changed its tune on Khashoggi’s fate, first denying his death, then saying he died during a brawl at the consulate, and now attributing the death to a chokehold.

A senior Saudi official told Reuters that the killers had tried to cover up what happened, contending that the truth was only now emerging. The Turks reject that version of the story, saying they have audio recordings of what happened.

A Turkish intelligence source relayed that at one point Qahtani told his men to dispose of Khashoggi. “Bring me the head of the dog”, the Turkish intelligence source says Qahtani instructed.

Light – Part 3/3 – Karma Yoga Daily

However, I also subscribe to “Fake it till you make it.” You don’t necessarily have to know yourself as Divine Light. You can be a kind, thoughtful and loving person anyway, and most are on this planet. I am certain that kindness is the fundamental quality of Humanity, but since we’ve been horribly messed with, mind-controlled, our Divine DNA sliced and diced, and God knows what else, then reclaiming our wholeness in order to hold the Light has become imperative for Ascension into the Fifth Dimension or higher.

We are each powerful beyond measure. By thinking the highest. Acting the highest. Blessing. Affirming. Praying. Meditating. Not engaging in the drama, trauma and deception of the 3D matrix. By helping where we can and whenever we can—we are Holding the Light. By sending loving thoughts to Gaia, to her Kingdoms, and to Humanity, we are bringing into manifestation the Golden Age of Gaia.

For me, holding the Light begins with Self.

“Love thy neighbor as thyself.”

~ Matthew 22:39.

Correcting the Donald: Scientists are Not Split on Climate

Climate Denial Crock of the Week

Vast majority of Americans are under the impression that there is some kind of debate about climate change among scientists.

Actually, no.
97 percent is the right number.

Guardian:

When queried about the most recent IPCC report, Republican lawmakers delivered a consistent, false message – that climate scientists are still debating whether humans are responsible. The previous IPCC report was quite clear on this, attributing 100% of the global warming since 1950 to human activities. As Nasa atmospheric scientist Kate Marvel recently put it, “We are more sure that greenhouse gas is causing climate change than we are that smoking causes cancer.”

Donald Trump articulated the incorrect Republican position in an interview on 60 Minutes:

We have scientists that disagree with [human-caused global warming] … You’d have to show me the [mainstream] scientists because they have a very big political agenda

Americans badly underestimate the expert…

Trump Dismantles Methane Gas Emission Rules, Allows Super Global Warming Gas Levels To Rise By 480,000 Tons/Yr

Comprehensive climate reporting must include methane: New report shows you how

Just last month 13 of the world’s largest oil and gas majors—including ExxonMobil, BP and Shell —came together for a new commitment to reducing a key super pollutant. Methane, the primary component of natural gas, is the second leading contributor to climate change and over 80 times more potent than carbon when leaked into the atmosphere in the short-term. What’s more surprising? The coalition’s new methane target proceeded despite an uncertain regulatory landscape in the U.S.

One of 76 recent environmental rollbacks, the Trump administration’s latest move toward undoing common-sense methane regulations is expected by the EPA’s own estimates to allow an additional 480,000 tons of methane emissions.

Saudi Arabia claims it does not know the body’s whereabouts, with anonymous officials saying it was rolled into a carpet and given to a “local collaborator” to be disposed of, a claim dismissed by Turkish sources.

A Turkish source on Sunday said Khashoggi’s body was cut into 15 pieces and that the squad “did not roll anything up in anything.”

Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy, who has been identified as the head of forensic evidence in the Saudi general security department, reportedly cut Khashoggi’s body with a bone saw while he was still alive.
