In the COVID-19 novel coronavirus pandemic, countries around the world shut their borders, restricted travel, closed businesses, canceled events, quarantined citizens, and mandated shelter in place orders for millions of people. Overwhelmed public health systems increasingly turned to government and the military industrial complex to save them from the invisible enemy.
“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” – Rahm Emanuel
Governors in all 50 states of the nation have declared emergencies in their states and now many are starting to activate their Air and Army National Guard to help deal with the growing coronavirus pandemic. [Military Times]
Troops in New York, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Louisiana and Michigan, among other states, are supporting relief efforts. Their mission includes disinfecting public spaces, distributing food, assisting with transportation and logistical support of health officials, and collecting and delivering samples.
What is Martial Law?
Martial law is a term that describes the government order of replacing civil rule with the military in a time of war or emergency.
While the troops may not be patroling your streets and keeping you locked in your homes, the military is actively involved in the “war on Covid-19”. President Trump and talking heads throughout society are framing this pandemic in military terms and our government is admittedly on a war footing.
President Trump declared a national emergency over the coronavirus outbreak amid extensive disruptions to the economy and American life. The president’s declaration of a national emergency means that he will enact the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, which allows the White House to mobilize the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and direct federal aid to states hit by disasters and health crises.
The Trump Administration approved the activation of the National Guard in California, New York and Washington state to fight the coronavirus epidemic. The president said, the state governors will retain command of the National Guard, but the Federal Emergency Management Agency will cover all costs of the missions to respond to the virus outbreak.

At the time of this writing, I don’t know what the outcome of the pandemic will be, but I am concerned about what our lives may look like when the pandemic subsides. I am concerned of the possible effects of public/private partnerships will have on society in the long term. If this is our new 9/11, what will the new normal look like?
Medical Martial Law 2020
This latest threat of possible martial law is yet another piece or step in the Fabian Socialist agenda of incremental “reasonable” regulations, restrictions and reforms inducing America into the globalist new world order. While there is some debate whether the governments reaction in this pandemic could trigger martial law, as Rahm Emanuel suggested, the government may be using the Covid-19 response as a beta-test of rolling out full blown martial law. In many ways we are witnessing a form of martial law where the federal government may be leaving the ultimate choice of enforcement to the states, what we’re not hearing is how the feds are influencing state governors to carry out the national mandate.
The Stage Being Set for Martial Law
The 2012 passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) allows the military to detain indefinitely without trial any US citizen that the government labels a terrorist or an accessory to terrorism.
President Barack Obama’s signing of the National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order has authorized widespread federal and military control of the national economy and resources during “emergency and non-emergency conditions.”

The US Army announced in 2008, the First Brigade Combat Team of the Third Division was placed under the command of US Army North, the Army’s component of the Pentagon’s Northern Command (NorthCom), which was created in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks with the stated mission of defending the US “homeland” and aiding federal, state and local authorities. This marks first time ever, the US military is deploying an active duty regular Army combat unit for full-time use inside the United States to deal with emergencies, including potential civil unrest.
Military Preparing for Martial Law
The Washington Post reported on plans to station 20,000 more U.S. troops inside America for purposes of “domestic security”, an expansion of Northcom’s militarization of the country in preparation for potential civil unrest following a total economic collapse or a mass terror attack. “The U.S. military expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011 trained to help state and local officials respond to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe, according to Pentagon officials,” reports the Post.
The contention that the troops will merely help “recovery efforts” after a major catastrophe is contradicted by the fact that Northcom itself, in a September 8 Army Times article, said the first wave of the deployment, which was put in place on October 1st at Fort Stewart and at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, would be aimed at tackling “civil unrest and crowd control”.
After a controversy arose surrounding the admissions made in the Army Times article, Northcom retracted the claim but conceded that both lethal and non-lethal weaponry traditionally used in crowd control and riot situations would still be used in the field.
As Alex Jones exposed in the late 1990’s, U.S. troops have been training for a considerable amount of time. During numerous urban warfare drills that Jones attended and reported on, troops were trained to raid, arrest and imprison U.S. citizens in detention camps as well as taking over public buildings and running checkpoints. During role playing exercises, actors playing prisoners would scream “I’m an American citizen, I have rights” as they were being dragged away by troops.
Police State 4: The Rise of FEMA
Concentration style camps and detention facilities have been constructed around the country and bills are being introduced in Congress authorizing the Department of Homeland Security to implement its network of FEMA camp facilities to house U.S. citizens in the event of a national emergency or to “meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security.”
