Can Obama Use Martial Law To Keep White House After 2016 Election?
The Obama administration has very quietly and subtly done many inexplicable things that could very well be precursors to the suspension of some, if not all, of Americans’ constitutionally protected civil rights.
SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 3, 2016 — Dr. Ben Carson, a black neurosurgeon and a former 2016 Republican presidential candidate, has stated that he believes there is a chance that the 2016 elections may not be held at all.
Widespread anarchy gripping the country could be reason enough for the Obama administration to announce the implementation of martial law and the suspension of some, if not all, of Americans’ constitutionally protected rights — including the right to vote and hold national elections.

Carson went on liberal radio host Alan Colmes’ radio show and the discussion eventually came to whether or not Dr. Carson plans to run for president in 2016. He said that there may not even be elections in 2016; when pressed to explain further, Carson said,
If in fact we continue to have all these decrees being made the way they’re being made, if in fact we don’t fight the kind of war that needs to be fought in order to really put an end to the threat that is brought on by ISIS, if we continue along a pathway of financial irresponsibility, if we continue along a path of envy, greed, and hatred — what happened with Occupy Wall Street will be a cakewalk compared to what will begin to happen in this country.
When Colmes pushed Carson further on the possibility of cancelled or postponed elections, Carson responded, “I don’t want to find out. I really don’t want to find out. I don’t want to continue down this pathway that we are going down. This pathway where everything is framed in a political sense and our representatives are not working for the people, they’re working for their party.”
Martial law is “a system of complete control by a country’s military over all activities, including civilian, in a theoretical or actual war zone, or during a period of emergency caused by a disaster such as an earthquake or flood, with the military commander having dictatorial powers… In many foreign countries martial law has become a method to establish and maintain dictatorships either by military leaders or politicians backed by the military.”
In America, martial law must be called for by the president, who would then suspend most, if not all, of our constitutional rights, and only the president would be able to re-institute our constitutional structure and declare an end to martial law.
If anyone believes this idea is far-fetched, please consider the numerous emergencies that Obama has exposed Americans to in the next two years. Possibly with more than one of these issues occurring simultaneously; the Ebola virus and its associated mandatory quarantine may continue to spread due to Obama’s pitiful prophylactic and responsive actions; our $18 trillion and counting government debt could finally cause the government spending bubble to pop, leading to all government spending halting overnight. Massive associated riots would occur due to welfare, EBT and Medicaid/Medicare cards ceasing to work; and the threat of Islamic terrorism, specifically ISIS, whose unmatched funding, training and brutality could fulfill their leaders’ promise to shed the blood of millions of Americans.
Additionally, Obama’s choice not to sufficiently secure the border must be taken into consideration. With all of these possible emergencies, open access to our country could only increase the likelihood of all three possibilities.
Never in the history of our country have we faced so many destructive threats at the same time. America has also never had leadership that has failed to competently handle every single threat facing our country. If Obama isn’t one of the most inept people to ever hold elected office, then his actions must be calculated to produce these results.
Obama knows he is unpopular with the military; therefore, he has had to find a different way to institute martial law. That is through a “civilian national security force”. On July 2, 2008, at a campaign stop, Obama made the following unscripted statement; “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
