Dem Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee Suggests Martial Law to End Government Shutdown

If Sheila Jackson Lee has the balls to say this then she may know something we don’t and this is just the beginning. No one in Congress has ever suggested let alone used those words, martial law, up until now. Either she is out of her mind, which is highly plausible and most likely here, or she just let the cat out of the bag!

Now let’s all stay calm let’s not jump the gun here and come to crazy theories. Sheila Jackson Lee tends to say things that are completely out of context because she has the reading/ word comprehension of a second grader. The socialists are engaged in heavy fear mongering and scare tactics, she may have said this to get a rise out of people to put pressure on Congress to cave to the emperors demands.

Folks need to keep an eye on what other socialists are saying. If.. IF another Congressman/ Senator invokes “martial law” during their floor tantrum then Lee’s comment is not an accident and we have trouble coming. Stay vigilant but please don’t panic over this you know they always do or say things in the hopes of starting real trouble. Let’s NOT give them what they want!

  • Daniel Tolbert

    We Texans need to re-call this “person”,,She’s waaaay out in left field and a to embarrassment, always has been,,

    • Joshua

      Well she may be an embarassment, but at least you guys have Ted Cruz…I still think out of every state, that Senator is the best, and that includes my state.

      • deepseaviking

        Ted Cruz is no where like this chick ha ha ~

    • gregkliebigsr

      yes, more of obama’s picks, as only a mentally disturbed individual would pick!

    • deepseaviking

      As far as I am concerned she doesn’t rep Texas and is a lunatic. Research and read some of the things that come out of her illiterate mouth!

      All she represents is the trash in Houston~!

  • Sheila Samsal

    RECALL..RECALL RECALL!! I am ashamed she is representing Texas! Let’s make sure she is in the unemployment line in the next election!

    • Suspiciousbev

      that will never happen, I wish It could happen, but it will never happen

      • Elaine

        Her ignorant constituents will never bite the hand that feeds them!

    • El Gato

      She represents a Gerrmandered district in Houston. She does not represent Texas. I can see by looking at the map of the district, it was designed to keep her in Congress.. forever.

    • plaguebeast

      ashamed she is representing you? Want to trade places with me, I am represented by Bill Nelson and DWS!

    • Elaine

      You should recall her. Most of her voters were using businesses addresses as their residence to vote, which is legal, but True The Vote found lots of discrepancies! More people voted for her than are in her district? Something stinks!

      • Suspiciousbev

        Last election she was allowed inside the polls which is against the law. Each time a monitor would report her and after long periods of time finally Sheriff dept would eject her and she would just go to another location and do same thing.

  • Texastime2014

    She does not rep all of Texas, she reps Houston……………

    • UidiotRUserious

      She represents a district that has been very specially zoned to insure that the voters in that zone will only vote for her!

      • LadyPatriot

        Exactly, ghetto votes for ghetto every time. She’s an ignorant, ghetto, hood rat that was the pick of the ghetto litter. Her people must be proud.

        • Thomas Sullivan

          Did you notice she said, iDear, wonder if that is a new apple product or just ghetto slang for idea.

        • Kathy Mianecki

          Your comment hits way below the belt-shame on you!

        • Corinne Mercier

          Yes, I noticed that she said “idear.” I think it just shows that she’s an uneducated (maybe I’m wrong about that) idiot that should have paid more attention in English class instead of who her gang was going to mug next.

      • captdot

        Don’t know who may have set the districts there, but maybe they set it up to keep her in a cage.

    • GrandmaLynda

      She doesn’t even represent ALL of Houston, just the 9th ward the worst of the worst area of Houston where all the gangs, welfare recipients, and Katrina refugees live. It is the worst slum in Texas. I don’t think 1% of the people who live there work and most don’t even have a high school education. They all live off of US!!

      • MarkSylvstr

        Why is that not shocking?

      • Lawren Downing

        Katrina Refugees – nailed it. People forget when all of these folks were displaced in New Orleans (which is now growing again ironically) from Katrina they were sent to Houston and never went back to New Orleans. It’s amazing how no matter where you go in the country if there is a cesspool in that city 99.9% of the time there is a Democrat in charge of it.

      • Tess Neugebauer

        Then she should start with her 9th ward, good luck telling the thugs she represents that they are now under government control!

        • excagirl

          They are already under government control. In order to get their welfare, food stamps, WIC, section 8, ad nauseam, they have to vote, and do, exactly what their masters say. They have sold themselves into slavery by their own laziness.

      • That figures.

  • Larry Launer

    The hag is gerrymandered in , no way you can recall her , the groids love her

  • mdlwoods

    This is probably the one major thing that makes me ashamed of Texas: SHEILA JACKSON LEE. Of Course you need to realize what district she represents and how many more constituants she obtained because of Catrina!!!!

    The following guide will help you plan, prepare, and get ready in the event that martial law threatens you safety and well being. It is divided into two parts. The first part describes the framework for martial law and the second part the actions to take in preparing for the actual declaration of martial law.


    Martial law is defined as: military rule or authority imposed on a civilian population when the civil authorities cannot maintain law and order, as in a time of war or during an emergency.

    Hitler turned Germany into a Nazi dictatorship through executive orders.

    Executive Order 10995: All communications media are to be seized by the Federal Government. Radio, TV, newspapers, CB, Ham, telephones, and the internet will be under federal control. Hence, the First Amendment will be suspended indefinitely.

    Executive Order 10997: All electrical power, fuels, and all minerals well be seized by the federal government.

    Executive Order 10998: All food resources, farms and farm equipment will be seized by the government. You will not be allowed to hoard food since this is regulated.

    Executive Order 10999: All modes of transportation will go into government control. Any vehicle can be seized.

    Executive Order 11000: All civilians can be used for work under federal supervision.

    Executive Order 11490: Establishes presidential control over all US citizens, businesses, and churches in time of “emergency.”

    Executive Order 12919: Directs various Cabinet officials to be constantly ready to take over virtually all aspects of the US economy during a State of National Emergency at the direction of the president.

    Executive Order 13010: Directs FEMA to take control over all government agencies in time of emergency. FEMA is under control of executive branch of the government.

    Executive Order 12656: “ASSIGNMENT OF EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS RESPONSIBILITIES”, “A national emergency is any occurrence, including natural disaster, military attack, technological emergency, or other emergency that seriously degrades or seriously threatens the national security of the United States. Policy for national security emergency preparedness shall be established by the President.” This order includes federal takeover of all local law enforcement agencies, wage and price controls, prohibits you from moving assets in or out of the United States, creates a draft, controls all travel in and out of the United States, and much more.

    Martial law can be declared due to natural disasters, Y2k Crisis, Stock Market crash, no electricity, riots, biological attack, …. anything leading to the breakdown of law and order.


    Prepare before any declaration of martial law by becoming self reliant. You may become subject to a bureaucratic system and be prepared to stay one step ahead of it which is easy to do if you are prepared and in a position to be self reliant. You may also face mob rule, chaos, panic, or a complete breakdown in law and order. Surival situations may be easier to handle in rural areas than urban.

    Avoid areas of marital law. Can be imposed due to natural disasters or man caused events. Important to have a retreat or place in a rural area away from populated areas.

    Create alliances with like minded neighbors or community members that share your views. Team work and numbers may help your situation.

    Become transparent in the sense that you do not draw attention to yourself or your family. For instance, do not tell people that you are storing food just store food. Be prepared to render assistance to neighbors if need be. You never know when you will need them.

    Remain calm! Do not panic.

    Avoid areas of civil unrest if possible. If caught in civil unrest take appropriate action.

    Get informed and stay informed. Understand martial law can be a temporary crisis or an extended one. In extreme cases the shape of a whole nation can change.

    Declaration of martial law means your rights are suspended and it is government by decree. Your constitutional rights may no longer apply. This could mean a state of National Emergency.

    People can be arrested and imprisoned indefinitely without charges.

    Freedom of speech and freedom of assembly can be suspended, and censorship of the media imposed.

    Gun ownership will also come under severe attack during marital law. We could see house to house searches by the military or National Guard looking for guns and seizing any they find along with stored food.

    Take a stand on issues and make a choice that fits your beliefs and the situation. Do you believe as Patrick Henry, “Give me liberty or give me death?” Realize you may have some hard choices to make. Understand you may have to sacrifice your principles on trivial matters or take a hard stand. Always remember that you may have to come back and fight another day.

    • Richard

      Oh My Gosh! That’s so scary!
      Oh Wait a gosh darn minute.
      Executive Order 10995 was issued by JFK and has not been amended by Obama

      Get your story straight, If you don’t tell the truth why should your elected officials?
      Oh, if my information is wrong let me know.
      I don’t like to spread information that isn’t true.

      • Chelsey

        Pretty sure she never said Obama amended it. So get your retort straight.

      • MeanieHead

        No one implicated Obama in amending it. Reading comprehension apparently isn’t your strong suit. The problem here is that NO ONE needs to call for martial law just because Obama wants to throw a temper tantrum. He needs to grow up and pretend to be president.

    • Lawren Downing

      Well hell Obama won’t have to seize the media they jumped on board willingly

      • Joe Bob

        That would have to be a constitutional amendment.

  • Debra Blakley Weasner

    I have been hearing about Martial Law for quite awhile now. This is nothing new. O even has a map drawn up to eliminate 16 states. I saw a video where there were 3 different trains with hundreds of tanks. Does not look good right now. All of this is what O has been planning.

    • Richard

      Care to post a link to that video?

    • becky21k

      Trains have been moving military equipment for as long as we’ve had military equipment to move. The US has one base specialized for heavy overhaul of tanks. Not sure why people see pictures and go into a panic. It’s when you see them on your streets dispatched to each town that its time to worry.

      • Jim Brauer

        I think if you see them on your street, it’s already too late…better to be prepared BEFORE than during, or not at all…

    • Carolyn Hackett

      What video? Sources?

  • jennfire

    Ask yourself, why is Obama lowering the boom on all of our freedoms. Does he want an uprising?

    • Bev

      I’ve been postulating this all along. He absolutely does so he can become the puppet dictator for Soros.

      • Grey Ghost

        Who is Soros?

        • Jim

          One of the world’s richest. He is a large, if not largest supporter of all things liberal. He is a large stock holder in many food related companies and has stated more than once that if he can get control of the food, he can control the world. So many other things, too many to mention. A very sick and twisted man, that can and does control Obama.

          • Richard

            Oh I don’t think the Koch Brothers would allow that to happen.

          • aebe

            Progressives give far too much credit to the Kochs , or maybe that is the only name of rich Republican supporters they can come up with .
            In any case , their wealth does not hold a candle to Soros’s , and that creature funds revolutions , pushes his Open Borders ( No borders ) program , and is the chief architect in the destruction of our southern border . He funds a number of anti – American groups here in our country , alone . And although a Jew , he does wish for the destruction of Israel .
            Validate your 2nd Amendment Rights . Carry

          • Coovara

            While I agree with your over-crediting comment, either of the Koch brothers (ranked as tied for 6th and 7th on Forbes list) could buy and sell SOros easily (Ranked 19th).

          • aebe

            I had just assumed that a man able to play with the economies of nations would have the wealth of one . And you know what they say about assume .

          • Coovara

            And Charles and David prove you right every day.

          • roger bain

            Pure and simple Soros’s is a hateful person and when he dies tere will be a power struggle in he ll

          • Curt

            He’s also very pro-communist / socialist

          • roger bain

            Strange that a communist / socialist would want money I thought their goal was to share it with all, so much for this convictions of that issue.

          • Curt

            Do your research, that’s how I know he is…pretty simple, really

          • Tony

            The Rothschild already own the World. All others are puppets to them…..

          • BeautifulAmerica

            Hey! You’re so so right! I just posted as much, above.
            Soros is just a wanna-be low-level NWO pig.

        • cricket525

          Here’s a little info about Obama’s puppet master, Soros.

          Yes, the leader of the progressive movement, the creator of such “watchdog” sites as MoveOn, and Media Matters has no guilt about collaborating with the Nazis who murdered 440,000 Hungarian Jews during World War II. According to the Ottawa Sun, George Soros as a teenager (then a Jew himself) collaborated with the Nazis. According to the article Soros worked for the Judenrat. That was the Jewish council set up by the Nazis responsible for rounding up Jews every day for the trains. Soros’s father named Theodore bribed a non-Jewish official at the agriculture ministry to let George Soros live with him. The younger Soros then helped the agriculture ministry official confiscate property from the Jews. What Soros basically did was collaborate with the Nazis and turned on other Jews to spare himself. Sounds like your prototypical progressive to me. It also shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Soros recently “donated” $100 million to “Human Rights Watch” which is known for it’s anti-Israel bias. Does Soros regret any of his past? Does he feel any guilt? Nope!

          Soros is a well-known supporter of progressive-liberal political causes
          Took the above information from the web.

          • Lickamecracky

            Oh, so that’s the same as Karl Rove right? The great right hope, the master of GOP treason?

          • TopTC

            For every one “crazy” we have, the left have FIFTY. And if you want to talk “treason,” you need look no further than your own front yard.

          • cricket525

            Ain’t it the truth TopTC! I’m not one of the “Crazies” I hope! I just think that the main two who are the puppet masters are Soros and Valerie Jarrett.

          • BeautifulAmerica

            The facade is these 2. Like the mafia, you’ll never or rarely see the powers behind their (Soros & J’s) thrones.

          • Worship Dancer

            more like five HUNDRED. and all that one needs to do is look in the mirror to find treason.

          • cricket525

            Your user name says all I need to know about you and your opinions. The definition of liberal means to be openminded. Look it up. Unfortunately, most liberals are the most closed minded folks I know. If you don’t agree completely with everything they say, you are wrong. Maybe liberals need another name. Hmmmmm…….Socialist fits a lot better, don’t you think?

          • BeautifulAmerica

            I thought it was a junior high school kid playing hooky instead of studying his marxism, like a good obot.

          • roger bain

            Lickamecrachy Not really your just upset that your money savior is so hateful and you can’t stand that to find out the truth about him. As far as Karl Rove when the Obama and his minions in the media lie about good people. Your just sore that Bush got a second term.

          • roger bain

            Hummm being in the GOP is treason, it seem to me that you got it all as s back wards but what’s new about a liberal not getting it right.

          • Julia

            I read this story about Soros, but I swear it was in first person. Absolutely he feels no guilt, you do what you have to do to stay in good graces, no matter what sick group you align with and Soros is a sick mind.

        • Estavancruz

          I may be wrong, but I believe he turned on his own people in the time of Hitler. Sold them out so he could live.

          • Julia

            that he did, he is lower than dog dung on the bottom of his shoes.

        • TopTC

          George Soros says that the only thing standing in the way of a one-world global government is America. He happens to be RIGHT.

          • AprilJean

            Wrong – the only thing stopping a one world government at this time is God. It will happen and America will no longer be a super power when it occurs. All in God’s time.

          • Mike Leasure

            And then the rapture…..bring it.

          • Chris Boyles

            ..and if the rapture occurs after the Great Tribulation, whatca gonna do when Satan and his beast comes for you?

          • Jake N Gina Jameson

            Ahh, Chris… you should study up on the rapture. Compared to the history of the Church it’s quite a newborn theology indeed, accredited to some Scottish girl in the 19th century.

            Please do not champion the one world government so that the 2nd coming of Christ can be ushered in. Thousands of our Christian brothers and sisters are currently suffering real tribulation in the middle east under certain fundamentalist muslims. Beheadings, torture, rape, forced marriage, wholesale slaughter, and the destruction of homes, monasteries, and cathedrals are a daily occurrence in Syria and Egypt. The Lord does not deliver these brethren from harm now… what makes you think he is going to bail out us, the opulent American pseudo-Christian, when the velvet glove of state is lifted to reveal the crushing iron fist of totalitarianism in the western world?

          • Chris Boyles

            Your right. That was exactly my point. If you’re thinking that the “rapture” is going to take you away, especially in America, then you won’t be prepared when the things that are already happening in the world with true believers in the. Lord Jesus Christ comes here. There will be a ” rapture” for those that endure to the end of the Great Tribulation.

          • Jake N Gina Jameson

            Perhaps we have a differing notion of what comprises “rapture.” After the Great Tribulation is the 2nd coming of Christ. But even then, the Apocalypse (or the Revelation of St. John) is a difficult book to rightly discern. A strict literal interpretation of the book is a dangerous one… as well as viewing it from the lens of “this all happens in the future” when, perhaps, all of it was to happen in the present or near future of St. John’s day (much of which is distant past for us – the reign of the murder Diocletian, for example).

            It is best to rely upon the tried and tested interpretation of scripture by the Church to which it was entrusted. Given that the canon of scripture was decided upon by Catholic (not just Roman) bishops in ecumenical council, who are we to say that we, being complete novices in the realm of piety, fare better in the instruction of scripture than those who devote their lives to selfless service to God? 🙂

          • BeautifulAmerica

            Fabulous answer!

            Tell us about your avatar.

          • Jake N Gina Jameson

            Hah. Pic of me and the fam (and my mother visiting us for a brief time in the summer) in Virginia City, Nevada.

        • Taum

          He is the guy kicked out of Britian for almost toppling that economy

        • libsrretards

          Obama’s puppet master

        • Worship Dancer

          a Jew who helped hitler murder other Jews. he hates America, hates Jews, hates Christians, hates capitalism, has always stated that he intends to destroy everything about America and all America is.

        • BeautifulAmerica

          “Ha,ha,ha…wheee! Here I am my pretties! You will soon be my slaves! The Bilderbergers and Rothschilds and I OWN the woooorrrrlllddd!”

      • Melanie Schielder

        well he tried the race baiting several times, that included the time he said Travon could’ve been his son, hint hint, he wanted a race war, when that didn’t happen he had to find other ways of getting something going

    • Judy Trost Rhoades

      You bet he does! to invoke Martial Law

    • Clay Wilson

      Of course. Does anyone actually believe that there is one politician in DC that represents the American people? Would someone please tell me that politicians name?

      • Lawren Downing

        I think men like Rand Paul try to represent the people and fight for the Constitution, but sometimes even Rand Paul has to compromise for the big picture. Men like him are rare and far outnumbered in Washington. Politicians like McCain make deals with the devil to remain in power and the reason why term limits are crucial.

      • Vicki Babbert

        Ted Cruz comes to mind….

      • MaeBelle Barger

        Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are trying against all odds to represent the people…they have not yet been corrupted because they are Newbies !!!

        • TopTC

          And we need to help them stay that way!

      • TopTC

        Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Steve King, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio, to name a few (and unfortunately, there are ONLY a few, and I vehemently disagree with Rubio’s stance on immigration)

      • Suspiciousbev

        Ted Cruz

    • Lawren Downing

      I think he is testing the waters. I think he wants to see if he can trigger something so he can declare martial law and we all know once that happens the Constitution is gone.

    • Tess Neugebauer

      It is exactly why protest need to be done peacefully, don’t play their games!

    • BorisK-Cat

      The goal is a dictatorship; if he can cause enough civil unrest and angst, he can, just before the next election, declare it too unsafe to hold an election at that time, declare martial law, and per the constitution, set himself up as dictator-in-chief for life. Period.

      I sure hope I am wrong on this.

    • captdot

      That would be the end game, I believe. Bill Ayres and Saul Alinsky, not to mention Cloward & Piven all advocate overwhelming everything, then reconstruct in their image. Also, remember “Top down, bottom up, inside out” by Van Jones? Create crises, cause as much pain as possible for as many as possible, and push people to the limit until they beg the government to take control.

    • Taum

      Yes he does want an uprising so he can declare Martial Law. If we rise up like the Wall street occupiers did that would be enough for him to do that

    • Elaine

      Yes and that’s why he’s putting up all the barrycades and hoping to incite anger in vets. Dictators always fear their military most.

      • BeautifulAmerica

        obaMao? He doesn’t come up with these things; his handlers do. Don’t give this ignorant %$)(*)* credit for anything other than Treason.

    • Suspiciousbev

      Yes, he would like an uprising so that he can use Martial law and become the dictator he wants to be.

    • roger bain

      It been suggested that Obama and his minions want the vets to do something rash so they can rain them in and set an example, would not surprise me if this is part of their plans to settle things on their terms.

  • SeeingSomethingThat’sNotThere

    Doesn’t ‘martial law’ in this context refer to the House practice of short-circuiting wait times for getting a bill from committee to floor? This is nothing new.

  • blight14

    In hindsite, I can think of two constitutional amendments that should have NEVER been made!

  • 3985

  • Don’t Mess With Texas

    Vote out that Communist NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Tyler M

    She wants a war? BRING IT.

  • 91B4S

    Martial Law Procedure in Congress: Under “martial law,” the Leadership can file legislation with hundreds of pages of fine print and move immediately to debate and vote on it, before Members of Congress, the media, or the public have an opportunity
    to understand fully what provisions have been altered or inserted in the legislation behind closed doors. Basically it does away with the waiting period generally used for the congressional buffoons to find out from their handlers how they should vote.

    • Richard

      Interesting thank you.
      Where did you get this?

      • 91B4S

        I apologize, I don’t recall the web site…but I searched for “Congressional Martial Law Procedure”. Hope that helps

    • MoBetter2

      Seems like they have been doing this exact thing for the last 5 years. Doesn’t that describe the process used to pass the (UN)Affordable Health Care Act in the dead of night with no Republican votes?

      • 91B4S

        I agree with you

    • Richard

      Well a little looking around and I found it on the Net! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

      • 91B4S

        Glad to assist

  • Zabada

    Any member of government, who recommends martial law, to end a dispute over a difference in ideology, especially when there is a majority of legitimate voters who are being ignored by the government, is guilty of excessive ignorance, greed for power, fear of being exposed as a moron and morally less than the minimum worth of the most depraved human being. Sheila Jackson Lee’s desires are tantamount to the tyranny our founding fathers charged us with the obligation to resist, fight and even die to prevent such tyranny from succeeding.

  • Carolyn

    Another truly ignorant liberal comment. She wants to enlist the help of the military, who have been degraded, humiliated, and generally insulted by this liberal administration. Liberal foolishness knows no bounds.

  • Judy Trost Rhoades

    Does this mean to use martial law to force a vote on the house floor? Or is that she really is that stupid, and doesn’t know what it means.

  • Snake_jr

    How did this “thing” ever get elected? She is from Texas? WTF??

    • pointandshoot

      She was born and grew up in Queens. She moved to Texas and found a pile of idiots in the jerrymandered black congressional district. This district probably has a lower per capita income than Haiti, if you don’t include welfare, food stamps, and drug sales.

      • MoBetter2

        It also has an equivalent average IQ – significantly lower than 80!

  • You dumb bitch get your definitions right! What martial law means in America is all out WAR!!!! cause aint no one taking my guns and the first thing they will try to do is disarm us

    Would not be the first time she indirectly spilled the beans on something, remember she said something to the effect that “Barack knows everything, he has people for that” months before the NSA spying scandal broke.

    But she is a frigging idiot, how does martial law solve the problem?

    • becky21k

      Ahh, I see, it changes policy with regard to lawmaking. Sorry, my American school never mentioned that.

  • My gues is this a colloquial term used in the Congress for a type of expediting procedure. Much like the nuclear option refers to changing the Senate rules to eliminate the need for cloture. Perhaps someone who knows can find this out.

    Ive had a feeling that this has been obamas plan all along this is why he has been pushing his health care bill so hard. By enacting it now it will have enuff time to cause an up rising in america. Therefore if martial is enacted and if I understand it right he can’t be removed from the presidents seat until its lifted. Other dems. Have asked that he the term limit be lifted in order for him to run again its not much of a leep from there.



    • Carolyn Hackett

      Source? Source that says he stays President until marshal law is lifted if it is enacted?

      • Vicki Babbert

        The only thing I can find on the subject thru my searches is this, I can’t find anything about suspending elections tho.

  • wabby99

    Bite the bullet and move into her district in Houston in DROVES a couple months before the election so you can vote her out of office. Time for us to do what they do. Pull a little Alinsky on them. It is time to take back control.

    Sheila Jackson Lee, and a few other congresscritters from Texas are an embarrassment to the state, the country, and humanity. The only reason she keeps getting reelected is that her district was gerrymandered so all the welfare recipients had representation who are smarter than their congresscritter.

  • jim

    Marshall law should apply to congress and the President, not the American People.. This so-called legislature has failed the American People thru the Direction (and temper-tantrums) of “President” Obama. –Keep em in Washington Dc and out of the rest of the country. I’m a Texan –recall her–exile her–how’d she happen anyway.

  • Andy McWilliams

    Recall the crazy bitch!

  • Andy McWilliams

    By the way, it’s Marshall Law, after Justice John Marshall. It’s more credible when you get this right.

    • John Fryman

      I would find out whether that’s a real term, like the ‘nuclear option’, cause I somehow doubt it.

      • Andy McWilliams

        Google it.

        • thomaspainelives

          Googled it, no mention of Marshall at all. Sorry, This woman IS dumb enough to think we need military running the country.

        • John Fryman

          Yeah ok:

          The term “martial law” in a legislative context is somewhat obscure but it has been used before to define lawmakers’ ability to “fast track” bills without going through the usual congressional process.

          However, Lee’s insistence that a Senate-approved resolution to fund the federal government be fast-tracked via “martial law” appears to conflict with Article I, Section 7, Clause I of the Constitution, which states, “All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives.”

          This clause was included by the founders to ensure that decisions related to the power of the purse reside with the legislative body which is closest to the American people.

          The last time martial law was mentioned by a member of Congress was back in 2008 when Rep. Brad Sherman revealed how lawmakers were threatened with “martial law in America” by then Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson if they rejected the TARP bailout package.

  • Will68

    I deer? wtf

  • Mike55_Mahoney

    Here’s the correct tactical response. The Republicans must ask the Democrats, boldly, if they agree. If they do not, then the Republicans must demand that the Democrats show good faith that they are not fomenting rebellion by calling for her removal or by trial in the House. If they refuse, and Republicans should say this, we must assume martial law is on their to do list. As stupid as she is, she has duties and responsibilities. This is a clear breach and should be dealt with very harshly.

  • MeanieHead

    How many dead people voted for this woman? how many illegals voted for this woman? No one with a brain would have voted for her when she makes such outrageous comments. She’s just gross.

  • Michael Baier

    What the hell good would Martial Law do to solve it? Are they rioting in the halls of Congress? Its not the American people who are out of control! Unless the military is going to surround Washington and arrest everyone inside its borders it would just be another waist of tax payer dollars by idiotic control freak Democrats in this country!

  • Ginger Whetstine

    She’s talking about an emergency procedure that allows then to bring a bill straight to the floor without having to be approved and discussed in a committee. She is not talking about martial law the way most people would mean it, it’s a technical term for a bill voted on immediately.

  • Jimmy Z

    She’s not talking about the kind of martial law that all of you are assuming.

  • Russ

    Take a deep breath everyone. In this instance “martial law” refers to a particular parliamentary procedure in the House of Representatives. Sometimes it’s spooky but in this case it’s there to expedite all the matters under consideration in the House. Nothing more than a way to expedite all the various appropriations bills the House has passed during the shutdown.

    “Under the martial law procedure, long-standing House rules that require at least one day between the unveiling of significant legislation and the House floor vote on that legislation — so that Members can learn what they are being asked to vote on — are swept away. Instead, under “martial law,” the Leadership can file legislation with tens or hundreds of pages of fine print and move immediately to debate and votes on it, before Members of Congress, the media, or the public have an opportunity to understand fully what provisions have been altered or inserted into the legislation behind closed doors. This is the procedure that the Leadership intends to use to muscle through important bills in the next two days.”

    Calm down folks. When she says to “Martial Law,” she is explaining a parliamentary procedure on pushing a bill through.

  • Matt Z

    Mmmm. Just for the record, she’s refering to congressional Martial Law which is not what you think it is.

    “Under the martial law procedure, longstanding House rules that require at least one day between the unveiling of significant legislation and the House floor vote on that legislation — so that Members can learn what they are being asked to vote on — are swept away.

    I’m not saying it’s good or bad, just that it’s not what you think. And, for what it’s worth, it’s a tactic that republicans have used in the past –

    etc. I watched the video…She referred to martial law NOT in the sense

    disturb me that she uses the phrase, ‘martial law’? Absolutely…she’s a

    Hello America, as an American and a registered voter, I appeal to you my fellows to make a concerted effort with me to contact our/ your Senators!

    We as citizens of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ask that a Senate over-sight committee be formed on behalf of the voters and all Americans; to Order a psychiatric evaluation be done on the man residing at:

    1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Washington D.C.

    The events of the past few months and the decisions made by

    Mr. Barak Obama are all signs of an individual with a mental disorder! So, we ask , Please get your best Psychiatrists to do an evaluation! This must needs be done before he causes anymore damage to our FREEDOMS AND WAY OF LIFE!

    What put it over the top for me is when I saw Park Rangers with guns to keep VETERANS out of PUBLICALLY funded memorials , BUT GUNS WERE TAKEN from guards at our embassies and military bases! Only a man with mental problems could come up with that!


    The man who is the President of the United States is MENTALLY UNSTABLE!

    Is she as stupid as she sounds? Or, is she suggesting some type of unconstitutional force to circumvent the power of Congress to determine the debt ceiling? I hope she is just stupidly spouting off about something that she knows nothing about. On the other hand, if she has reason to believe that marshal law might be declared to override the rulings of Congress, then America is in real trouble. Pray she’s just stupid.

  • Pragmatic

    As a Republican who would really like to see this woman go away, I still feel the need to point out that she is using the term ‘martial law’ as it applies to the legislative process, not to civil liberties. In this sense, it is a way to bring bills to the floor without the required waiting period typically allowed for members to familiarize themselves with the contents of the proposed legislation. ‘Martial Law’ allows the bill to be voted on almost immediately after it comes out of committee.

  • Robert Zornes

    And she’s probably one of those that believes, like one of her other colleagues, that if you put too many people on an island, it could tip over.

    It’s a damned sad commentary that people with her intellectual capacity keep getting re-elected to office. But then she does keep her fingers in the pot and gives her constituents “stuff” that other people work to earn while her own sit on their lazy asses with their hands out for more.

    • Jeffrey Davis

      consider the IQ level of the idiots, perverts and bigots who elect the squealer.

    Lets not forget this:

    By Attorney Jonathan Emord April 2, 2012

    On March 16, President Obama without public notice
    unilaterally assumed dictatorial power over the entire country, issuing an
    Executive Order (“Executive Order—National Defense Resources Preparedness”)
    that would permit him in times of peace or war, in his sole discretion, to
    control all of the nation’s industry and resources for “purposes of national

    Under Article I, Section 9, Clause
    2, Congress has the exclusive power to suspend the writ of habeas corpus (the
    right of one to be released by a court from military or police custody) in
    “cases of rebellion or invasion” when “the public safety may require it.”
    Although not synonymous with martial law, which the Constitution never mentions
    by name, it is nevertheless clear that the Founding Fathers did not intend the
    President either to declare a state of war or to act independent of Congress to
    suspend the writ. Moreover, there is no executive power to impose blanket
    regulations over the economy independent of Congress, even in times of war. In this Executive Order, President Obama assumes that extraordinary power beyond the limits of the Constitution. Indeed, so sweeping are the areas of control, that there is no substantive difference between the powers he has assumed and those of a dictator.

    Under the March 16 Executive Order, the President invokes a 1950 Act of Congress, the Defense Production Act, as a basis for asserting extraordinary control over the entire economy in service to the national defense needs of the United States. In effect, President Obama has unilaterally expanded the authority of Commander-in-Chief to include not only command of the military but also to command all private parties and resources in support of the military and objectives of his administration.

    The powers assumed are vast, comparable to those exercised by dictators. Part II of the Order includes the following section, which delegates to the various secretaries of the administration the power to supplant private contracts with federal controls over every part of the economy.

    Sec. 201. Priorities and Allocations
    Authorities. (a) The authority of the President conferred by section 101 of the
    Act . . . to require acceptance and priority performance of contracts or orders
    (other than contracts of employment) to promote the national defense over
    performance of any other contracts or orders, and to allocate materials,
    services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the
    national defense, is delegated to the following agency heads:

    (1) the Secretary of Agriculture
    with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources,
    veterinary resources, plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of
    farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;
    (2) the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;
    (3) the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health
    (4) the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil
    (5) the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and
    (6) the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services,
    and facilities, including construction materials.

    The Executive Order expressly does not limit the use of these extraordinary powers to times of war or the theater of war but, rather, they can be used for “purposes of national defense,” entirely in the discretion of the President. The powers are delegated to the cabinet secretaries. There is no provision for prior authorization from Congress, so the President assumes that he may act unilaterally.

    The National Defense Authorization
    Act declared the entire country a “battlefield” in the war on terror and
    granted the President the power to suspend the writ of habeas corpus, permit
    military arrest and detention without notice of charges or any right of due
    process any American accused of providing support to terrorists. The
    President’s Executive Order grossly expands the constitutional violations in
    the NDAA by replacing the Constitution with a presumed power of the President to govern the entire economy. In the history of the United States, there has never been a more profound and grave moment of the exercise of imperial executive power than this. This President who would be Emperor, now is.

  • TopHattery

    This is sort of out of context of what is actually being planned. Martial Law in the government is a way of getting a bill through quickly in a time of gridlock, which is a bold political move. Essentially it would bypass the government shutdown and give the Republicans no reason to keep it up.
    Not a great idea, but at least people are thinking of options.

  • David J. Gill

    It’s irrational fear mongering in the text above by Bmartin1776 to suggest that the Congresswoman may know something. If such a thing were contemplated she would not be in the loop. But her words do show the depth extreme concern among Democrats that is justified. An Executive Order raising the debt ceiling unilaterally will be issued at the last moment. He can argue that he must conform to section 4 of the 14th Amendment:
    “The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.”

    There is considerable opinion among legal experts in favor of Presidential authority to do this, but even the Court and Congress to do not concur this is still the “LEAST UNCONSTITUTIONAL” action available. Lincoln and FDR took similar actions assuming unprecedented Constitutional powers that Congress was obliged to confirm because it was clear the President had acted in the public interest. Duty would suggest the President should do this regardless of the consequences to himself and his Presidency.

    I would like to know what honorable acts of leadership or personal sacrifices required by duty will be offered by those Republicans in the House of Representatives or by the Speaker of the House in the public interest. Does their sense of duty to the nation and the oath of office that they swore determine their actions or does their IDEOLOGY determine their actions.
