Post Marshal Law? Cojak
Just wondering. We received a call from someone who was scheduled to visit this weekend. They were sending their regrets but since President Trump will be declaring the country will be under Marshal Law, and the only travel between states will be 'essential' personnel only, they will not be here.
My wife told them, "We haven't heard anything about that."
He said that is common knowledge here in North CArolina.
There must be a reason for martial law, just what could it be?
Imma doubter anyway, congress would over ride that decree, right?

Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes & shaking my head.

You aren't getting the social media forwards. The story line goes that Trump will have the government shut down the Internet, use the military to arrest Pelosi based on the information on her laptop which was allegedly snatched during the Capitol riot, and restore the Republic.

Its a ridiculous rumor, because martial law, on a national scale, requires Congressional approval.

Ah ha! but not funny, that is probably the source. I do not hang close to any sites except Acts, and Bloggers ville. The exception is when I get a notice that a friend is haveing a BD, I go and wish them a happy birthday and scan some long enough to get confused... Embarassed Embarassed

Post Frantic phone call FLRon
Last night I received a call from a 78 year old sister from my church who was frantic with fear over all the baseless rumors of Martial Law being bantered about.

Seems people have been telling her to get to the grocery store while there was still food to be bought because the country would be on 100% lockdown effective January 22. She even told me she was afraid to leave her house, which explained her sporadic church attendance of late.

I told her she had nothing to worry about and that everything she was hearing was based on rumor and no factual evidence. I did remind her that because of what happened last spring with stores running out of certain items, she should be keeping a couple of weeks of food on hand just as a matter of routine practice.

The sheer volume of worthless information being spewed on the web is incalculable, yet there is no shortage of people willing to ingest it.

I'm hearing rumors of martial law but supposedly it was Trump who would do that on the 19th.

We need to have discernment and operate in wisdom, not panic and fear, but I can see where it's concerning.

I wouldn't be surprised if Biden shut us down but hopefully they'll give more than a few hours warning.

Okay, I think Link hit the nail on the head also SB about congressional approval. I knew Congress with enough votes could resend any presidential order, that is a SAFEGUARD to dictatorship.

I just viewed President Trump's latest video. He called for "NO VIOLENCE AND OBEYING THE LAW" but DID NOT discourage protests. I do expect protests now, big ones. And I would not be surprised if some hothead doesn't bring an AR to show his stand. That is a menu for more violence.

I am a gun owner and support anyone's right to bear arms for protection. But a 'peaceful' open showing has a reverse effect, it appears to some to be a threat.

Personally I think the Biden Administration will be politics as usual, in the present environment there will be a 'get-even' period that Republicans should be ready to suck-it-up, since Trump has been so adamant to this end.
It is human nature, I have witnessed pastors doing it, have the 'get even attitude' I mean.

Making light of an obvious election fraud in which millions of ballots were mailed directly to people whether they asked for them or not, then, in typical Jim Crow era Democrap fashion the ballot harvesters who had to leave their poll-watching intemidation posts in the 70s, were free to go door to door to apply their "you want me to fill that in correctly or let the neighbors know you voted for Trump" tactics, were left unchecked and free to commit fraud, is un American and stupid just because you didn't like the candidate.

I have seen and heard a lot of material online. I get a lot of forwards. Many weeks ago, Trump supposedly had put a water mark on the fake ballots. Every week or so this time, he is going to pull something out of the hat and be the president.

Now, the story some are saying is that he has the national guard in Washington DC and elsewhere to prevent an uprising when he's sworn in and has Biden arrested. That would actually be a brilliant strategy if it were the case and his objective were to do that, but would that have had to necessitate organizing the uprising at the capitol... or just taking advantage of it? And how would all these guys on Facebook and alternative media platforms know about it? Supposedly, special forces snatched the laptops of Nancy Pelosi and others and got incriminating evidence.... which she supposedly had on a laptop she carried around with her.... From my perspective, I couldn't do such a thing considering the oath of office. Some people are presenting this scenario as preserving democracy. Supposedly, he has hard evidence about his political opponents collaborating with foreign powers.

I do realize that Trump is a brazen man in some ways and his ideas of what is the right course of action may not be typical when compared to other people's approaches. So I wouldn't completely rule out the possibility of something like this. But the laptop thing does seem a bit far-fetched to me.

But the 'mainstream media' is also warning of armed protests and the national and state capitols.

The right-wing media feels a bit like conspiracy theory stuff. But conspiracies can be true (occasionally at least), too. I think what opened the door for this was the really low quality news, which is mostly editorial, coming out of mainstream sources for so long combined with Facebook and other big tech companies fact-checking practices. The quality of news is so low, it is hard to find trustworthy sources, so people are looking around for information. News sources produce the type of news their viewers/readers want to watch/read these days. That seems more important than actually reporting real news.

We already had a big stash of food from COVID and we are keeping it for future pandemics and other problems. I bought a huge bag (50 lbs) of field corn at the farm supply store-- not that not-fit-for-human-consumption danguerous-fungus-infected deer corn from Walmart. We have rice, soybeans (I think), flour. We bought a generator. I had been planning on it. I probably should have gotten it before the rumors. But just in case, we have that and a can of gas and the gas in the cars. The power can go out from time to time, too, so I figure it's good to have it anyway.

We already have two refrigerators here and two freezers. One freezer is the really big kind. I have a greenhouse with a hydroponic grow wall in it a friend made for us, but I haven't planted the seeds yet. I've got some mulch with nitrogen in it to throw off some heat as it decomposes.

Some shortages may be akin to self-fulfilling prophecies. Unjustified fear can lead to shortages at the store. Remember the toilet paper and chicken shortage of 2020 and stock when you can. I need to get another bidet or two.

Btw, it's 'martial' law.
