Don’t think so? Think some are being alarmists and doom sayers? Well then, read the following I got in an email from Solutions From Science. It just may change your way of thinking!
I don’t consider myself a conspiracy theorist. In fact, I’ve always tried not to make more out of things than they appear on the surface. Most of the time life just is, and mankind doesn’t seem intelligent enough to conspire in such convoluted ways as some folks would like to postulate. The elite like to think they’re of a class of their own, but in all reality, they’re so puffed up with themselves and pride that they are of no earthly good. They have the wherewithal to make mischief … and a lot of it. But I’ve never thought that they were as far-sighted with their planning as some would have us believe. Greed and the desire for raw power doesn’t utilize strategic planning or patience very well.
However, it doesn’t mean that leaders or those in power can’t look back on past actions by previous administrations and decide to take advantage of laws, treaties, partnerships, agreements, or executive orders passed.
For instance, through the Security and Prosperity Partnership, the nations of Mexico, Canada, and the United States have “volunteered” their military forces in the event of a national emergency in any of the three countries. Mind you, this is not a formal treaty. It has no congressional oversight, and Congress has never authorized it. No, the SPP is a “dialogue” between the three countries. (Now what a “dialogue” is and how it’s different from a formal treaty is obviously above my paygrade, because this thing looks like a treaty to me…)
And it wouldn’t take something like a civil war to call on these other nations for assistance. No, now, through executive orders, the president has the authority to declare a national emergency if, for instance, he feels the Internet is being compromised. (And that’s just one scenario.) Of course the definition of “compromised” is left up to those in power, so by definition “compromised” means whatever they want it to mean.
Now, take that a step further. The president has just used his authority to activate an Internet “kill” switch. Millions of people are instantly out of work. People are getting angry, and they want some answers. Without the Internet, computers, supply systems, transportation systems–everything is useless. People are tired of being manipulated by their government, and they’re not taking it anymore. That’s when the president calls upon that “dialogue” his predecessor had with Mexico and Canada,
and before you know it, you’ve got foreign troops enforcing martial law in your city.
It doesn’t even have to be an Internet kill switch scenario. How about mass panic because of a perceived “pandemic?” (Can anyone say H1N1?) How about any number of things? The president has the power, because of the actions of previous administrations, to define what “is” is … and there is not one blessed thing Congress can do about it for six months. That’s right–they can’t even contest it to the judicial branch.
This whole thing sounds a little far-fetched, doesn’t it? Well, how about this from the Daily Paul Liberty Forum from 2008?
On February 14, at the U.S. Army North headquarters, Fort Sam Houston, Texas, U.S. Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, commander of North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command, and Canadian Air Force Lt.-Gen. Marc Dumais, commander of Canada Command, signed “a Civil Assistance Plan that allows the military from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a civil emergency,” according to the USNORTHCOM website. Billed as a “bilateral military plan” to align U.S. and Canadian “national military plans to respond quickly to … requests for military support of civil authorities,” the plan represents nothing short of a merging of national military infrastructures under the aegis of the North American Union.
And now the Obama administration is trying to play fast and loose with the Second Amendment.
According to the Huffington Post (hardly a bastion of conservative thought):
The Department of Justice held the first in what is expected to be a series of meetings on Tuesday afternoon with a group of stakeholders in the ongoing gun-policy debates….officials said part of the discussion was expected to center around the White House’s options for shaping policy on its own or through its adjoining agencies and departments….Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are among a host of options that President Barack Obama and his advisers are considering.
There you have it. The president is actively seeking to “affect” your second amendment rights without congressional involvement at all. He intends to take any tack he can that doesn’t include the Congress or the American people. He honestly feels he can rule by fiat. His disdain for the Constitution is amazing.
Guns are for more than self-protection. Guns also allow us to hunt and feed ourselves if we so choose. That the United States government would feel that we should not be allowed that constitutional right is mind-boggling. And when honest citizens no longer have access to weapons, that means the criminal element will be free to prey on whomever they choose.
