In a recent article, Justanothercoverup committed to:

Within the next two to three weeks, Justanothercoverup will be expanding the category “# S 1959, Endgame, Martial Law, DHS, NSA, Fascism” by adding articles from all over the Internet that present varying thoughts on these subjects as well as the best way to survive a declaration of Martial Law. We also plan to offer specific materials, available from this site, which will be a compilation of facts and hypothesis from the leading authorities who have had the courage to speak-up on this issue. LINK

At first glance, the above statement may seem innocuous, however, it’s actually a daunting task and fraught with liability. If an author or individual builds-up enough credibility to have his “advice” or thoughts on how to react to a declaration of Martial Law taken seriously, whatever remarks, assumptions and or/or suggestions that are made by that individual could affect life or death situations that will occur thousands, if not hundred of thousands of times across the country if such an event happens. The variables and factors that will be in play are enormous, and strategies and questions will have to be answered and planned for, many of which are basic but essential to your survival and ultimately, whatever amount of peace-of-mind you can muster knowing you’ve attempted to exercise your best judgment to make the most realistic plans for your family. Above all, we believe it’s essential to try and separate the facts, which we can substantiate, from the speculation and conspiracy theories that abound on the Internet. Unfortunately, one of those “conspiracy theories” is apt to be correct, but when you note the numerous theories that permeate the Internet, which one do you ultimately believe and what exactly should you prepare for?

It’s my belief that combining what we do know and can prove, coupled with sound logic and preparation, are the essentials to surviving Martial Law. We need to speculate far less and need to study the rise of other fascist nations and examine their tactics and proven methods for success. If you haven’t read Naomi Klein, Google her name and read some of the many enlightening articles and books she’s written, most notably “The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism” and don’t miss the many interviews, videos and other information that is freely accessible on the Internet. We know that liberty and freedom are hanging-on by the finest thread which could snap at any time, but it’s a situation that we need to respond to with reason and logic rather than hysteria and fear - elevated to the point that we lose the very essence of what makes us Americans. Above all, we must retain our identity and spirit and attempt to educate, not belittle those that believe “it couldn’t possible happen to them.” Knowledge is power, and in just the last couple of weeks, hundreds of thousands of Americans have become aware and S 1959 and Martial Law are among the hottest topics being discussed and researched on the Internet. It’s essential that this subject be made an issue in the final round of Presidential debates between the chosen GOP and Democratic candidates that will be fighting for the Presidency.

We can thank the courage of The San Francisco Chronicle and their publication of “Rule by fear or rule by law?” for being the catalyst of this “awakening” which is rapidly developing in our colleges and homes across the United States. Americans are now far more aware of S 1959 and the real prospect that Martial Law could be declared within the continental United States in our near future. Since the SF Chronicle published their expose’ on S 1959 and EndGame, the Internet has been awash with links, videos, and information that is resounding throughout this nation and throughout the world; people from almost every walk of life are expressing their outrage and fear via the countless Blogs, News aggregators and discussion forums that constitute the new media that is taking America by storm - the “alternative news media”, brought to you by concerned citizens and politicians who have now become aware that EndGame and the subsequent declaration of Martial Law are not “conspiracy theories”, but a reality in the New Amerika the Bush administration has been attempting to usher-in since they were first installed in office.

Now that we know EndGame is a reality, the question arises of what we as a nation are to do in the event that our worst nightmare should come true and through hook or crook, our government maneuvers or create events that will ultimately lead to martial law and suspension of the 2008 Presidential elections, or in the alternative, a quick decent into chaos because the GOP lost the election and hastily attempt to subvert whatever is left of our democratic (sic) process in order to stay in power and avoid prosecution for their treasonous and felonious actions. President Bush, as he stubbornly insists that Congress grant the telecoms immunity has essentially threatened America that if we don’t grant his “request”, Americans “could” suffer a devastating terrorist attack because Congress has effectively tied the hands of the intelligence gathering community, therefore allowing the “evil doers” free reign to attack America.

Those of us who have not been cowed into fear by the President’s incessant fear-mongering are aware this is propaganda and blackmail of the highest degree and understand that Bush and Cheney, along with their cabal of co-conspirators need Congress to grant the telecoms immunity because once the telecoms are granted a “get out of jail free card”, the immunity will trickle-down (or up) to include immunity for the criminals that first implemented this unconstitutional and illegal program; immunity for the telecoms means immunity for those who coerced them into violating our rights, and in the final analysis, the President understands that if Congress fails to honor his demands, the weight of the illegal wiretapping will eventually fall upon the shoulders of those who initially perpetrated the crime. Perhaps Congress will consider immunity for the telecoms at a later date, maybe in exchange for their testimony against those who dared to violate our constitution as a vengeful America seek to prosecute those who have trampled upon our rule of law and willfully destroyed our economy as well as jeopardizing the lives and security of the inhabitants of The United States!

None of us know exactly how this will play-out, but what we do know is that when dealing with Bush and Cheney, we can hope for the best and always expect the worst - a lesson well-learned by evaluating Bush’s tenure at the White House this past seven years. One possibility that must be factored-in is how we will communicate with other family members, how and where family members are to congregate after such a declaration, as a declaration of Martial Law could result in a temporary information black-out.

Executive Order 10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.

This order was executed by President John F. Kennedy on February 16, 1962. Some of the language is vague, however, with this administration that’s proven to be an open-license to interpret the order any way they feel it serves “the national interest”, so the general population faces the real possibility of attempting to cope with Martial Law with only “official news” to guide their thoughts and opinions, as Bloggers and alternative news sites can and likely will disappear almost instantly through a well coordinated media blackout. If that includes cell phones and other lines of communication, it’s essential to have a well thought-out plan for family members to follow so they will know where to meet and/or congregate and what perishable and emergency items for them to procure, or attempt to, on their journey home.

So, there we are, back to the question of what should the public do if our government declares martial law? During the course of our research, we found one website entitled Survive Martial law.com and carefully read and evaluated what was contained on the site. Survive Martial law.com is the brainchild of Harold Williams, and much of what he states is true as it pertains to the impact of a martial law declaration, however there are statements and contentions that are somewhat contradictory, and in fact, raise many questions which need to be addressed. It’s obvious that Harold Williams has done his homework, and while we don’t agree with everything that is stated on his site, the predictions of store’s shelves emptying in a matter of a couple of hours after a martial law declaration is certainly valid as is his prediction that food and medicine supplies may be disrupted on a national basis for a long period of time - possibly months. This possibility does pose a genuine threat to the survival factor of your family and those who remain unprepared will face horrific times if Martial Law is ever declared; Mr. Williams’ recommendations to stock-up on essential food stuffs and water are spot-on, as is the necessity for secrecy. We’re definitely playing on the same side but with some significant differences.

Mr. Williams offers a publication on his site entitled “Survive Martial Law” for twenty dollars ($20.00). We purchased the ebook and found it was comprised of forty-four pages, at least 80% of which were commentary and an excellent history of “how” we may have wound-up in this situation. The substantiation he offers are a list of websites, many of which host excellent facts and information, some that I quote myself, especially as it pertains to S 1959 and Martial Law.

Mr. Williams believes that Martial Law will be declared in the early spring of 2008, and in fact declares that he received a tip to that effect. On the second page of “Survive Martial Law”, he states:

A Secret Service Operative called me and said he’d heard the government was going to allow a city to be vaporized very soon to trigger Martial Law. He walked away, took his family, and caught a freighter to the South Seas.

There are many people, professional and otherwise who have expressed their concerns about a false-flag attack on American soil perpetrated by the Bush administration, and many worry that his refusal to secure our porous southern border has already allowed terrorists to infiltrate our country and possibly smuggle-in weapons of mass destruction. At any rate, so far it’s been a matter of raw speculation, and unfortunately, it appears that our only verifiable “source” that an attack is imminent is somewhere in the south seas with his family on a freighter… Perhaps the author is attempting to cover-up the real location of his informant, but even for me, a freighter in the south seas being used as an escape route for an experienced Secret Service Agent and his family seems a little “cloak-and-daggerish.”

There is another interesting set of “facts” presented in “Survive Martial Law”, and in all honesty, I’m confused at the implications these thoughts present to the reader. Mr. Williams states that he was with “Special Forces” during the Vietnam War for three (3) years; “I averaged 18 days a month combat during my 3 years in Special Forces in Vietnam, and it was up North, around Hanoi” and describes his combat skills as thus:

One thing I will mention, and many will disagree, but you and your buddies are no match for 50 Special Forces. I was one, and even today would take on 20 guys with hunting rifles (even good shots!), killing them all in 20 minutes!
