Swords To Plowshares
So, the never-ending quest to disarm the American public has taken a new turn. It seems that the feds have developed a program to train clergymen to persuade their congregations to turn in their weapons and obey the government during martial law. Is it too late for Charlton Heston to don the collar and take his place in the pulpit? He sure was convincing as Moses, so he's bound to make a scene.
This scenario begs the question- is martial law imminent, or is this yet another scare tactic? Given all the other recent preparations, including the National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive, I would say that we are on very shaky ground. The Hurricane Katrina crisis seemed to have been a dry run for gun-grabbing, as forced confiscation of firearms did indeed happen. Thus, a precedent has been set, and the feds have a frame of reference for a future disarming on a bigger stage.
The reasons for martial law outlined in the Presidential Directive are vague at best, but easy to estimate. A crashing economy, heightened tension and violence between immigrants and natives,
and panic over dwindling resources like water in the southwest all loom on the horizon. A large-scale false-flag terror attack is not unlikely. Pick your poison, but count on something along these lines happening. The only real question is when.
