The United States government has been engaged in a covert war against the very same ideals I defend right here every day.
A war against your freedoms a war against your civil liberties and a war to discredit the constitution.
The Bush Administration -- the help -- the up patriot -- there were three of them attacked her civil liberties the Obama administration with the help of -- Attacked your financial liberties slowly but surely.
Our freedoms are slipping away.

Martial law is already -- joining me now is Gary Barnett author of martial law in America.
No longer just a possibility Gary welcome back to freedom watch.
Oh thank you judge it's always a pleasure being with -- What what what do you mean when you say that martial law in American is here today.
Well I mean and don't -- -- the structure for martial law is definitely here so.

All these kind of things are going on there's many more examples.
Don't we have federal judges state judges.
-- faithful to the constitution.
And we'll put a stop to the government when it does that I mean there is a very famous Supreme Court decision.
Abraham Lincoln's system of military trials for civilians during civil war the and validation occurred.
After Lincoln died of course the case is caught in -- Milligan but it stands for the following proposition but constitution -- here in good times and in bad.
Applies to everybody to everyone equally those in the government.
And those out of the government basically bad times don't mean that your liberties participated.
Don't we have judges who will uphold those principles.
Well we if we do I don't see many of them around.

That the military.
National Guard or regular army.
Or maybe your air force.
Even though there wasn't an air force at the time of course can't be used to enforce.
Domestic criminal laws basically we don't have soldiers in the streets of the United States of America no matter what.
Question would members of the military.
Be faithful to the constitution.
Rather than comply with unlawful orders.
From dictatorial bodies such as the one you're talking about that the president is trying to set up.
I wish I could -- yes I think there will be certain individuals.
That might stand up for the liberty or the constitution.
But I think in the -- and total -- like I think I think soldier follow orders.
I was in the army.
Long ago and you know soldiers follow orders -- It is unlawful to -- bay and unlawful order.
And and taking away someone's rights whether it's their right to defend themselves -- their right to stand.
On a soapbox on a street corner and criticize the government or whether it's their right to go into a grocery store or liquor store when it's snowing out.
These are things that the military can't be used the -- and the government can't interfere with.
Well what they are committed that's you know that's the whole point the that -- the bush legislation that could change insurrection act that was supposedly repealed.
It but -- -- about back in not old panel ATP but you know what they what they changed little what -- Brought forth at that time was -- national defense authorization act.

You live in an area where there -- a lot more freedom and the war are there are even people in the government.

What would the government of the state of Montana do if the feds tried to come in.
And suppress human liberty and normal human activity what they resist -- where they go along.
In on it and they're very political it's a democratic government here I would I would say to be a 5050 chance they might -- attempted.
Two to stop it initially I think more so.
The people of Montana.
I think would be much more adamant about this.
You know causing problems and and and not.
Not taking more in the Senate to I think that the people look much more so the government but I think there would be a chance.
