Donald Trump’s Martial-Law Talk Has Military on Red Alert

Newsweek

Pentagon and Washington-area military leaders are on red alert, wary of what President Donald Trump might do in his remaining days in office. Though far-fetched, ranking officers have discussed what they would do if the president declared martial law. And military commands responsible for Washington DC are engaged in secret contingency planning in case the armed forces are called upon to maintain or restore civil order during the inauguration and transition period. According to one officer who spoke to Newsweek on condition of anonymity, the planning is being kept out of sight of the White House and Trump loyalists in the Pentagon for fear that it would be shut down.

“I’ve been associated with the military for over 40 years and I’ve never seen the discussions that are being had right now, the need for such discussions,” says a retired flag officer, currently a defense contractor who has mentored and advised his service’s senior leaders. He was granted anonymity in order to speak without fear of reprisal.

A half-dozen officers in similar positions agree that while there is zero chance that the uniformed leadership would involve itself in any scheme to create an election-related reversal, they worry that the military could get sucked into a crisis of Trump’s making, particularly if the president tries to rally private militias and pro-Trump paramilitaries in an effort to disrupt the transition and bring violence to the capital.

  1. The New York mafia is pressuring for martial law. This is going to happen because under Biden the mafia doesn’t make money there’s a lot more to this than you think. Trump is very beholden to the New York mob. It would blow your mind how much power the mob really has

    By declaring martial law, Trump stays in power.

    1. Yeah, and I just read Natural New’s Agent Adams encouraging Martial Law, and saying the people need to use their 2nd “Amendment” right to defend against tyranny. And a few sentences later, he says he doesn’t condone that but it needs to be done. What a schizo. The whole Martial Law thing is like saying, “Use this type of oppression to confront that type of oppression, to assure the we are kept oppressed.”

      It’s heatin’ up out there, the confusion, the fear, the chaos, the deception, the false flags, the wars, all heightened, as we approach January 6th and the name of the new tyrant is announced. It’s BILL OF RIGHTS OR BUST; all else assures continued tyranny. Maybe we can make this THE CENTURY OF THE INDIVIDUAL, where all false power structures crumble from the weight of a people determined to live free. Yes, we can!!
