. . . AS THE CONSTITUTION HAS BEEN SUSPENDED FOR EIGHTY YEARS!

In December last year attorney Stewart Rhodes’ organization Oathkeepers released a new documentary called Midnight Ride – when rogue politicians call for martial law. It was based on a book written by attorney Edwin Vieira titled By Tyranny out of Necessity. This documentary is a perfect example of gaslighting. The term gaslighting was coined after the movie Gaslight which was released in 1944. In the film the husband relentlessly denies the reality his wife is experiencing; making her doubt her own perceptions and sanity.
Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse where the abuser manipulates situations repeatedly to trick the victim into distrusting his or her own memory and perceptions. Gaslighting makes it very likely that victims will believe whatever their abusers tell them regardless as to their own experience of the situation.
Midnight Ride – When Rogue Politicians Call for Martial Law represents one of the more egregious examples of intentional misdirection being inflicted on trusting Americans. In the video they demonstrate that since 9/11 and the passage of the Patriot Act, the ‘government’ (who they refer to as “rogue politicians”) has been implementing unconstitutional martial law policies due to the national emergency known as the War on Terror and that the source of many of these policies is the Executive Branch’s Department of Homeland Security. Of course they don’t mention the fact that our current fascist version of “Homeland Security” was made in Israel and paid for by America’s worst enemy AIPAC. They also don’t mention the fact that Israel’s Mossad was responsible for 9/11 in the first place, according to US Army War College veteran and Jew Alan Sobrosky.
Midnight Ride demonstrated that the Department of Homeland Security is responsible for the creation of a police state and that law enforcement has been trained to treat the American people as “enemies of the state”, which is true.
The documentary features multiple men expressing their opinions that the United States Constitution has no provision for Presidential ‘rule by necessity’ or ‘war and emergency powers’ authority. This is where gaslighting comes in big time. The fact that emergency powers have been in place since 1933 (for more than 80 years) was officially disclosed in a major Senate Report (93-549) back in 1973. Attorneys Stewart Rhodes and Edwin Vieira are either incredibly uninformed or they are intentionally keeping their followers in the dark. Either way they are not trustworthy.
Here are some quotes from Senate Report 93-549:
Since March 9, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency.
The Special Committee on the Termination of the National Emergency was created to examine the consequences of terminating the declared states of national emergency that now prevail . . . In accordance wit this mandate, the Special Committee – in conjunction with the Executive branch, expert constitutional authorities, as well as former high officials of this Government is now engaged in a detailed study to determine the most reasonable ways to restore normalcy to the operations of our Government.
Under the powers delegated by these statutes, the President may: seize property; organize and control the means of production; seize commodities; assign military forces abroad; institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and communications; regulate the operation of private enterprise; restrict travel; and in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens.
In his first important official act, Roosevelt proclaimed a National Bank Holiday on the basis of the 1917 Trading With the Enemy Act . . . [which made American citizens the “enemy” during a declared war or national emergency.]
During the implementation of Roosevelt’s national emergency, American citizens were classified as enemies of the state to justify FDR’s gold confiscation and as long as the national emergency remains in place US citizens are considered enemies.
Researcher Dr. Eugene Schroder did a thorough investigation of emergency powers and in the early 90’s prepared a special report. Using the government’s own documents he proved that the Constitution has been effectively set aside since 1933 and explained that during a national emergency the American people are “enemies of the state”. Twelve presidents, both Democrat and Republican, have used emergency powers non-stop ever since to regulate our daily lives without the inconvenience of Congressional approval. The definition of “emergencies” has been stretched to include economic problems, social imbalances, and perceived threats to the US by any foreign country’s actions, even those on other continents.
In this video Dr. Eugene Schroder explains his findings:
Here is the text version of Dr. Schroder’s Special Report:
So, the only way to end the abuses now being inflicted on the American people – as enemies of the state – is to convince whomever is sitting in the White House to cancel the supposedly unconstitutional eighty year state of emergency once and for all!
