Some Quick Q

My hope in having produced this rather lengthy series of articles on the Q Phenomenon is to "red pill" the Red Pillers, as it were.  A significantly large group of people in the US have been completely and alarmingly duped by a faceless, nameless self-admitted psy-op called Q, and in so doing they have been commanded (literally) to "do the research," yet not a single one of them has done so.

Instead of thinking critically and being wary, the Qvians have allowed themselves, admittedly out of desperation, to be drawn into a mind-game of staggering sophistication and proportions that ultimately has them giddy with excitement over the prospect of martial law and military tribunals, without a single one of the Apostles or Acolytes doing REAL research and coming to a full understanding of what they are cheering for.

I can shoot the whole thing down with a few links and a little reading, which I despair none of them will do, but I must discharge my duty to inform them of their error to the best of my ability before something truly awful happens.

Let us begin on 24 April 1863.  Abraham Lincoln, a supposed hero and worshipful figure (and Republican) during American's Civil War, signed General Order No. 100, also known as the Lieber Code, and titled "Instructions for the Government of Armies of the United States in the Field."

This rather long and detailed document is a complete set of rules for how the US Army should go about invading and occupying the Confederacy, and includes rules for Martial Law and Military Tribunals - two topics near and dear to so many Qvians these days.

The Lieber Code, or parts of it, have been incorporated into international law and has been used in the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan most recently.

The first three Articles of the Code should put a chill down any true Patriot's spine:
Article 1.
A place, district, or country occupied by an enemy stands, in consequence of the occupation, under the Martial Law of the invading or occupying army, whether any proclamation declaring Martial Law, or any public warning to the inhabitants, has been issued or not. Martial Law is the immediate and direct effect and consequence of occupation or conquest.
The presence of a hostile army proclaims its Martial Law.
Art. 2.
Martial Law does not cease during the hostile occupation, except by special proclamation, ordered by the commander in chief; or by special mention in the treaty of peace concluding the war, when the occupation of a place or territory continues beyond the conclusion of peace as one of the conditions of the same.
Art. 3.
Martial Law in a hostile country consists in the suspension, by the occupying military authority, of the criminal and civil law, and of the domestic administration and government in the occupied place or territory, and in the substitution of military rule and force for the same, as well as in the dictation of general laws, as far as military necessity requires this suspension, substitution, or dictation. 

This is just the beginning of pages and pages of hair-curling details concerning the summary executions of civilians, firing squads, suspension of all civil and criminal law, and the literal establishment of a military dictatorship.

To the latter point, the reader should carefully note that Martial Law "consists in the suspension, by the occupying military authority, of the criminal and civil law, and of the domestic administration and government."  This will become integral to my argument shortly.

If nothing else, the reader may now understand why "Yankees" and "Carpetbaggers" are so hated in the southern United States, even to this day.

This Code, as far as I can tell, is still in effect and according to some researchers, is the foundational law of the United States at this moment - as long as there is a National Emergency.  It would behoove every Qvian to look up the status of National Emergencies in the US at this very moment.  In fact, Qvians are extremely excited about the prospect of a National Emergency being called in the near future over the southern border situation.  What implication does that act have, and is the state of Martial Law the reason why Trump would have the power to use the military budget to build the wall?

, It wouldn't hurt to note the gold fringe of Admiralty Law on national flags, and the military service flags that now adorn the Oval Office.  Is this a deeper message than just a warm mutual support between the White House and the several branches of military?

At this point, we will jump to 1878, and the passage of something called the Posse Comitatus Act, currently listed as 18 USC 1385: Use of Army and Air Force as posse comitatus.

In my experience, many people do not know what "posse comitatus" is.  Simply put, it is the legal power of a county sheriff or other "authority" to conscript/draft able-bodied men and their arms as deputies in emergencies to provide law enforcement.  This is a common feature in old Westerns, where a town gives chase to a criminal.  It is also the power by which the US has called up militia during the War for Independence and the military drafts during most of the 20th century.

The law forbids the use of regular Army and Air Force personnel in a posse comitatus.  It does NOT forbid the use of the Navy, Marines or Coast Guard - and now the Space Force.

There are many theories regarding the lawfulness of a standing army under Article I, Section 8, Paragraph 12 of the US Constitution, but that is a story for another time.

Note also that 18USC1385, does NOT exclude the National Guards of the 50 States, so long as they are used under the control of the State authority and only within their home state.

There are two points to take away here:

  1. Posse Comitatus ONLY excludes two of the (now) six branches of the military from being used in domestic law enforcement; and
  2. Under the terms of General Order No. 100, the civil and criminal law is suspended during Martial Law, thus negating Posse Comitatus in any event.

The Lieber Code was so abused by the US military in the post-war Confederacy and Reconstruction Era that the Supreme Court was forced to intervene to prevent the South from becoming belligerent again at the sheer volume of abuse against human dignity as occurred at the hands of the occupying forces under Martial Law.

Three years after General Order No. 100, in 1866, the Supreme Court issued a ruling called Ex Parte Milligan, in which it 'unanimously declared that the president had no power to set up military tribunals in secure areas where civil and criminal courts were functioning.'

The decision stated in part:
There are under the Constitution three kinds of military jurisdiction: one to be exercised both in peace and war; another to be exercised in time of foreign war without the boundaries of the United States, or in time of rebellion and civil war within states or districts occupied by rebels treated [71 U.S. 2, 142] as belligerents; and a third to be exercised in time of invasion or insurrection within the limits of the US, or during rebellion within the limits of states maintaining adhesion to the National Government, when the public danger requires its exercise. The first of these may be called jurisdiction under MILITARY LAW, and is found in acts of Congress prescribing rules and articles of war, or otherwise providing for the government of the national forces; the second may be distinguished as MILITARY GOVERNMENT, superseding, as far as may be deemed expedient, the local law, and exercised by the military commander under the direction of the President, with the express or implied sanction of Congress; while the third may be denominated MARTIAL LAW PROPER, and is called into action by Congress, or temporarily, when the action of Congress cannot be invited, and in the case of justifying or excusing peril, by the President, in times of insurrection or invasion, or of civil or foreign war, within districts or localities where ordinary law no longer adequately secures public safety and private rights.

We must conclude at this point that the argument that a "state of war" exists in the United States would be a herculean task to prove at best, and a specious argument at worst.  Furthermore, without the "state of War," there is also the matter of proving that the entire US system of jurisprudence is dysfunctional and "closed" for all intents and purposes.  Frankly, I cannot see any of this happening without ultimately declaring that the entire federal government is dissolved.  Any attempt to even begin this process would be wildly resisted by millions of people and widely viewed by the world at large as the end of the United States as a viable political and legal entity.

One last point needs to be examined, as I don't intend to cover the Insurrection Act of 1807, at this time.

Finally, we turn to Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, located on the eastern tip of the island of Cuba.  Guantanamo Bay, or GITMO as it is commonly called, was leased from Cuba in 1903, and the lease was renewed and updated until 1954, when the Castro revolution took over.  Since that time, GITMO has been an occupied region inside a hostile country.  Since GITMO has no civil or criminal court system, and it is in hostile territory occupied by military forces, that would seem to fulfill the terms of General Order No. 100 and Ex Parte Milligan.  Thus, we can safely assume is fully under Martial Law jurisdiction, meaning that any combatants or prisoners held there can be tried by Military Tribunals, with all the rules and regulations found in General Order No. 100.

The federal government has spent over $200 million renovating the base since Trump took power.  The Qvians all assume that the "biggest fish" will be taken there once the "sealed indictments" start getting unsealed.

If we assume that GITMO is indeed under Martial Law, and there is no reason I can find to assume otherwise at this moment, then it would indeed be permissible to try prisoners using Military Tribunals.  The major question hanging over us at this point is whether it is lawful to arrest US citizens on US soil and extradite them to a military base in hostile territory simply for the ability to place them under Martial Law?  It would be very instructive for the reader to view this video of Senator Graham interviewing now-Justice Kavanaugh during the infamous hearings late last year.

In conclusion, we must assume that the US is currently, or could soon be under Martial Law.  In any case, GITMO is almost certainly under Martial Law, and has been for 60 years, since the rise of Castro.

There are various law and regulations still in effect that prevent some, but not all military personnel from being used as a Posse Comitatus, and proscribe the intricate details of how Martial Law would be instituted, how it would work, what would be permissible, etc.  There is a Supreme Court ruling that limits Martial Law to hostile locations where the civil and criminal systems are "closed," however, declaring Martial Law nationwide would cause any Supreme Court rulings to be vacated since General Order No. 100 clearly says that these institutions are shut down until the military dictatorship is lifted by Executive Order.

A National Emergency is one circumstance under which Martial Law could be instituted, and Trump has threatened to issue such an emergency over the southern border in the near future.

Regardless of the arguments put forward to justify Martial Law, millions would resist, likely leading to open rebellion within the States, further justifying Martial Law.

I have saved the oldest and possibly the most insidious US law still on the books for last.  You can be forgiven for not knowing about 10USC15: MILITARY SUPPORT FOR CIVILIAN LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES.  Perhaps you remember it by its more common name from high school civics class - Insurrection Act of 1807.  It's a 210-year-old law that allows the federal government to equip, train and use civilian police forces to put down unruly populations, and to use those police forces to gather intelligence on us regular folks.

Most Americans will be at least partially aware that these programs of training and arming civilian police have been going on for years, decades and even centuries.  In fact, Donald Trump revived the program last year.  It begs the question - if civilian police are trained and equipped by and like the military, and are legally used to collect intel on the citizenry, why would the feds need Martial Law or even Posse Comitatus regulations?

This law even allows the military to "advise" police agency operations, effectively turning the police into the civilian action arm of the military, thus by-passing not only legal restrictions, but most Americans' fears of military intervention on home soil.  We saw this in action back in October 2017, when Trump ordered troops to the US-Mexico border to "support" civilian police agencies.

It is a very slippery slope these Qvians are playing with.

This, folks, is what the Qvians are so excited about.  It gives one pause.

Not only are Q and its followers gleefully promoting the utter destruction and dissolution of the US government, but the institution of a military dictatorship in its place, regardless of how short or innocuous they say it will be.

This is, in point of fact, the very treason they claim to be fighting.

Let that sink in for a moment.

 As a psy-op, Q has been wildly successful.  Not only has it neutralized a large portion of the vocal and active body politic, but it has successfully gotten them to welcome the destruction of the United States in favor of a military dictatorship all for little more than acts of revenge on a group of people who have yet to be charged with crimes, and the evidence of such crimes is so highly classified that not even the Congress can see it.

Innocent until proven guilty is a central tenet of English Common Law, which itself is the foundation of US law.  Regardless of what the Qvians or anyone else think of the various characters at the center of all this, due process and a trial by one's peers is vital to preserving both the image and fact of the US judicial system.

If I were a Clinton or a Bush or an Obama, this is exactly the outcome I would desire: get the most ravenous voices of justice completely sidetracked and even have them howling for the very thing they accuse me of, so that I can completely derail their efforts, delay any legal proceedings beyond the statute of limitations, and even have the opposition committing the same thought crimes they accuse me of promoting.

Brilliant.  Simple.  Effective.

    In actual FACT, the US has only 48 states.
    The contracts of Alaska and Hawai'i ran out years ago, and were NEVER reinstated, therefore they are both Sovereign countries.
    The US itself has also been a sovereign nation since 1999, due to the end of the Third International Bankruptcy.

  2. The country has been under a military junta for a long time. Probably worse than most people think. All they really do that makes it to the surface are operations intended to NORMALIZE their control so that they don't have to pretend anymore. Welcome to ZOG world and Area 51 style faggotry.

    I keep telling people that we have been occupied by our own Army since 1863 but the fact bounces off. I tell them plainly and explicitly that we have been living as Third Parties in our own country and under martial law because we have not formed our Jural Assemblies and restored our own government. That fact also bounces off.

    This country has been in the thrall of two foreign governments for 150 years. We desperately need to wake up.

  4. The writer of the stuff below uses a lot of known and understood facts by those awake, but he leads to several wrong conclusions. He left out the military tribunals being under civilian control and watch. He failed to connect dozens of other connections regarding the “whys” and “wherefores” of what is happening on so many level. What do you think will happen if his take is true? You would have 50 million PISSED OFF Americans, all with at least one gun. Civil war would eliminate the government if they are trying to do this fraud.

  6. North of the USA border, it took very little for the Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau to invoke the War Measures Act in October 1970.

    Since 1963, there had been a campaign of bombings by a loosely organized Quebec separatist entity called the FLQ. Aside from the bombing of the Montreal stock exchange, there had been few casualties. In Oct.1970 FLQ cells kidnapped a British diplomat and killed the Quebec deputy premier.

    For reasons that are debated to this day, Trudeau declared that Quebec was "in a state of suspended insurrection" and invoked martial law to allow military forces to beef up security and give the police broader powers of search, surveillance, and incarceration.

    Outside of Montreal, it was business as usual. Once the killers of the politician were arrested, and the kidnappers of the diplomat given safe passage to Cuba, the state of war measures ended. The brief period of martial law is largely ignored in current Canadian history texts.
