In late July, Bugout.news posed the question: What would it take for President Obama to declare martial law before the November elections, thus suspending them and imposing martial law until whatever concocted emergency-slash-crisis subsided?
One former top U.S. military commander, retired Gen. Tommy Franks, provided one horrifying possibility when he suggested in 2003 that a terrorist attack using nuclear weapons would not only create a perpetual state of emergency, but would likely crush what is left of Americans’ constitutional rights.
In a recent interview with Dave Hodges of “The Common Sense Show,” Natural News founder and editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, made a similar prediction, with additional caveats: While he believes a nuclear event could happen, he also thinks the election of the wrong person to the White House in November could trigger such drastic action by Obama.
That is, if it looks like GOP nominee Donald J. Trump will win, then all bets are off.
“The more Trump is leading in the polls as we approach the election, the higher the risk of a more large-scale false flag event,” Adams said in his interview.
The purpose, Adams said, would be to either disrupt, delay or even postpone the election indefinitely. He even suggested that the powers that be might try to “take out Trump” during some false flag event, which could include the incitement of a race war.
That latter suggestion isn’t at all out of the realm of possibility. Since he’s been in office, President Obama has stoked black anger and mistrust – against police and against whites in particular – with his constant harping about how racist the country still is, despite the fact that he was elected twice as the first African-American president in a majority white country.
Also, as the nation witnessed again over the weekend following a police shooting of an armed black man with a lengthy criminal record, marauding Black Lives Matter supporters burned and looted businesses, all the while searching specifically for whites to “beat down.”
Adams suspects it’s all tied together.
“I think, America – we’ve got to be on a ‘red alert’ level,” Adams said, noting that any number of events ranging from terrorist attacks, to the release of a pandemic, to poisoning of water supplies to nuclear attack, could be lurking over the horizon.
“We are entering the highest-risk period we have ever been in, and so preparedness is absolutely crucial right now,” he said.
Adams and Hodges also discussed how Islamic terrorists have essentially been allowed into the country, via lax immigration and border security policies, if not brought in directly through refugee resettlement programs, and that cells all over the country are simply waiting for the signal to attack. To that end, Bugout.news reported last week that an ISIS terrorist recently arrested by federal authorities told them he has “jihadist brothers” waiting in Mexico to cross into the U.S.
Adams said that what is happening is nothing short of the takeover or destruction of American traditions and values, via the political process, the legacy media, the entertainment industry and our institutes of lower and higher learning. In fact, he said, it fits a plan devised by the Communist leadership and intelligence services of the former Soviet Union. And the plan is going smoothly.
