Rob Kall: Do you think that can happen?
Rob Kall: Here, in the U.S.?
Let me tell you about a conversation I had with a Congressman, which I think was very revealing. I was talking to him about the National Defense Authorization Act, and the portion of it at that time that would do away with "Posse Comitatus," and essentially allow the military to enforce domestic law. And I asked the question very pointedly, " this is not about terrorism, it's not about potential martial law to fight terrorists. This is about Occupy Wall Street. ' He nodded his head up and down. I said, "I understand now !" The Congress was frightened! The Congress was frightened that the next place they'd Occupy would be the Capitol Building. And so they wanted the Armed Forces of the United States to be able to react in the event such a thing should happen.
Rob Kall: And who was this you said you spoke to you about this?
This was a Congressman, a member of the House of Representatives.
Rob Kall: Yeah
We were over there.. A friend and I were over there to talk about the war power, and we took the occasion also to ask why he, for example, had acquiesced, and as it turned out, he hadn't. He'd been one of the few votes against it, the National Defense Authorization Act amendment, that would destroy Posse Comitatus, which has been in effect since reconstruction, which essentially prohibits the military from aiding civilian law enforcement.
Rob Kall: And there's a lot more going on"
Rob Kall: "That is anticipating when people go out onto the streets, isn't there? You know anything about it? All these talks about the camps that have been created by FEMA and what have you? Do you give any credence to that?
