The End State: 5 Triggering Events That Would Place the U.S. Under Martial Law

Image resultReady Nutrition Readers, as you are probably well aware, the Obama administration would like nothing more than to place the United States under Martial Law.

Once that is accomplished, the country and people would be locked down and kept under control on the pretext of continuing with the government and/or maintaining the national security of the U.S. Let’s take a look at 5 events the administration would be most likely to utilize to reach this end state.

5 Triggering Events Could Put the U.S. Under Martial Law

Note: All of these can occur simultaneously, successively, or individually in any combination at any time: there is no limit to their use or potential to recur!

1. Economic Meltdown

Over the course of this past year, we have seen a tremendous amount of volatility in trade (international) and the U.S.’s domestic manufacturing base.  As our fragile economy is based on 75% of consumer spending, any significant downturn that keeps the shoppers home can lead to disastrous reports.  Lower consumer spending means people do not buy goods and services beyond the absolute essentials, and worse: (in the government’s eyes) they hoard money and withdraw their funds from bank accounts.

The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) can be seen as a key indicator of raw goods and materials transported to manufacturers and consumers via shipping contracts.  As mentioned in previous articles, Hanjinn Container Company, the7th largest container corporation in the world just filed for bankruptcy over the summer.  You can see the BDI fluctuations day by day when you visit  It has been fluctuating wildly over the past year.

Deutsche Bank is on the verge of bankruptcy and large banks such as Bank of America and J.P. Morgan have been plagued by losses and lawsuits alike.  The unemployment rate is truly about 25% and the “Soviet” style statistics quacked from the radio on “record gains” and “economic improvements” are false and intentionally misleading.  A “Bank Holiday” has already happened in places such as Indianapolis, and when the politicians, bankers, and oligarchs decide, they will pull the plug on a Federal Reserve system of fiat currency that is already an ineffective laughingstock of a smirking world that is steadily returning to the gold standard.  When that Bank Holiday is declared, you can be sure the financial systems will collapse and Martial Law will be waiting in the wings.

2. Cyberattack

This one is definitely one of the administration’s favorites.  We’ve been seeing signs of this with the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) and DNI (Director of National Intelligence) letters and statements that the Russian government is hacking into the American electoral and election process.  The “targeting” of the DNC (Democratic National Convention) e-mails was assigned to the Russians and officially the Russian government has been accused by the administration of such, and trying to influence the presidential race on Friday, 10/14/16.

We also saw on 9/7/16, two days before the 5th North Korean nuclear test, the corporation based in California that monitors North Korean missile launches and nuclear testing was hacked into.  A DoS (Denial of Service) was placed into their computer systems, preventing them from uploading satellite feeds and photos that would have enabled them to monitor the North Korean launch.  That corporation is the Project on Crowdsourced Satellite Imagery.  You can read more about this in the article “DoS Attack Crashes Website Monitoring North Korea’s Nuclear Test Site,” by Eric Niiler of

If other governments can crash our internet and servers, do you think it is possible that the U.S. government as directed by the Obama administration can do it on its own? 

When that occurs, cell phones will go down, the computers will go down, the financial markets will be in a turmoil and cease trading, and ATM’s and bank cards will be rendered useless.  Transportation, inventories, shipping, and deliveries will all be thrown into a turmoil and come to a halt.  For an excellent description of this, read Mac Slavo’s article from entitledWhen the Trucking Stops,” that shows how vulnerable our nation’s supply lines are.  Bottom line: if all of this goes down as a result of a cyberattack, Martial Law will immediately follow.

3. “Unforeseeable/Black Swan” Event

As of last week, Obama just signed an Executive Order (EO), entitled Executive Order: Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events,” signed 10/13/2016.  Such an EO could cover meteor strikes, Coronal Mass Ejections (CME’s) from the sun, a comet, or any other space anomaly.  Not a big deal, you may think?  It is a big deal, because here’s the bottom line:

Who is to prevent Obama from either causing another nation to launch an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) weapon, or launching one of his own (U.S.-made weapon), taking down the grid and subsequently blaming it on a CME event/solar storm, courtesy of the sun?

Other events would include potentially man-made or generated storms, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, or even volcanic activity.  If one scoffs at such, remember all that it would need is a 1 megaton nuclear “kicker” to set off either Yellowstone Caldera or the San Andreas Fault.  Such natural disasters (initiated by man or genuine) usually result in Martial Law at the state level on a regular basis, much less one that is national in scope…that Obama would jump on to inculcate Martial Law.

4. Nuclear War/EMP Attack

Any day we could be at war with North Korea, Iran, China, or Russia.  The resulting devastation, whether a full-scale or a limited nuclear war would automatically set in motion the wheels for COG (Continuity of Government), and a declaration of Martial Law.

Let me close this portion with my caveat:

World War III will begin with the detonation of an EMP device or weapon over the continental United States, followed by a limited nuclear exchange and then conventional warfare.

5. Viral or Bacterial Pandemic

Either naturally-occurring, or man-made.  The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) just inherited a tremendous amount of “police power” over the summer regarding their newfound ability to quarantine individuals or large groups of people on the suspicion of contamination/communicability regarding viral or bacterial pathogens relating to a potential or real pandemic.

There is an article by Catherine J. Frompovich entitled “ALERT: U.S. CDC Giving Itself Unconstitutional Powers to Round Up and Detain Citizens En masse Anytime, Anywhere and Throw Away the Key,” dated on 9/3/16.  This article details how these police powers were created in the Federal Register as the Proposed Rule “Control of Communicable Diseases” on August 15, 2016 that are now in effect to be found under Federal Register Number: 2016-18103.  Guess what?  That proposed rule is now law, and could easily be utilized to “justify” Martial Law in the U.S. because of a pandemic: naturally-occurring, man-made, or phony.

In addition to all of these juicy tidbits, the deciding factor is what I refer to as the “IHM,” or “Incredible Human Mob.”  Yes, Civil Unrest is a factor; yet it is not a method but a “sign/symptom,” a “side-effect” of what happens when one of the aforementioned 5 methods are employed.  “In the interests of public safety,” or “to protect the public,” or “to maintain law and order” are the phrases trumpeted by our benevolent and friendly government.

As Rahm Emmanuel said, “Never let a crisis go to waste,” the very ones who are to be protected (the public) are the ones who create the conditions for civil unrest.  It’s literally a “problem that takes care of itself,” and here’s the bottom line to cover the Civil Unrest factor:

Using the fake justification “in the interests of the safety of the people,” martial law will be declared to confine, restrict, and control the people…protecting them from…themselves.

Then come the restrictions to travel, the police state in the streets, at the workplace, and the confiscation of firearms.  Then comes the removal of “dissidents and potential troublemakers,” as well as the curfews, restrictions, and limitations in every facet of our society.  Martial Law is an objective of the Obama administration.  The problem is that he (Obama) cannot just arbitrarily declare it.  The declaration requires a prod, such as one of the 5 methods mentioned.  In those circumstances, he then can suspend our rights under the Constitution and bypass the true laws of the U.S.  Such an end state is his desire.  Such an end state would also mean the end…of the United States.

48 Responses to The End State: 5 Triggering Events That Would Place the U.S. Under Martial Law

  1. BR549 says:

    And lastly, the most important:
    6. When Trump wins the election, although Obama will no doubt employ 1 thru 5, whether real or not, to get to #6.

    • unreconstructed says:

      If Trump wins the elections, martial law could be used to imprison him and prevent him from taking office.

      • Shawn Severing says:

        If that is so,then we the people we stand and do what must be done .God bless America and the republic .

      • L. A. McDonough says:

        No one has done anything in decades doubt anything would happen now to our benefit. Each generation gets dumber and dumber and most patriots are in cemeteries or too old to act.

      • Shawn Severing says:

        They have gotten entitled and lazy .OUR STATE AND FEDERAL Governorment Have been de manning us for twenty years .But don’t forget our country has been in a WAR for 16 years now.

      • Daniel Brofford says:

        I am with you Shawn, I hope it doesn’t happen but I would rather fight then live on my knees. I told people back in 2008 that this guy was no good but didn’t have all the evidence to prove it. It was just a feeling I had. God bless America and I’m hoping that he will take care of Obama so we don’t have to.

      • Michelle Minze-Bryant says:

        Not to fan any flames, but I think we should separate from them and build our own country if Trump loses, Hillery wins. Hard to do, but it’s been done.

      • Shawn Severing says:

        Seperation is what they want .Diivide and concor is what they would love .They win ,we the people need to get the sick out OF OFFICE .Build the wall keep the illegals out .GOD BLESS AMERICA ,LONG LIVE THE REPUBLIC .DEFCON LIVE FIVE IS A GO .

      • Nam Marine says:

        And lead to Civil War II.

    • L. A. McDonough says:

      America is truly without hope as election will be rigged if Trump wins Fl, OH, Ga and NC.

  2. Inherent chaos says:

    Excellent article. I dreamt of the EMP you wrote about. There was no sound and it was right above our atmosphere w/ white clouds in circular waves that reverberated. Something is about to happen. We all feel it listen to the Priest Fr. Malachi Martin interview on a letter that was never read.

  3. Pat Taylor ╚(ಠ_ಠ)=┐ says:

    ɥɐʞᴉɹǝɯ∀ has been under Martial Law since Lincoln!

    This is why the unconstitutional system of law known as the UCC has been allowed to replace the original constitution as LAW, additionally, we see that we are a country without a constitution when we enter government buildings which fly gold trimmed uɥɐʞᴉɹǝɯ∀ flags, these represent the Maritime and Admiralty law.

    Executive Orders likewise are a result of a country without constitutional protection for its people, since the 1933 Bankruptcy of ɥɐʞᴉɹǝɯ∀, the government recognizes its citizens as enemies – how could anyone believe in the sham that we are protected by a constitution continue this long?

    • Bruce O'ryan says:

      It would appear we’re in the endgame now…be safe

      • Pat Taylor ╚(ಠ_ಠ)=┐ says:

        The contract was violated by the U.S. LLC long, long ago … The people have been outright lied to, dumbed down and made to view the government as a supreme being – most have no clue that what is termed as being the constitution of today is nothing more than a corporate charter which was formed between the foreign bankers and the traitors that pose as representatives by means of usurpation of authority.

      • Bruce O'ryan says:

        Their day is fast approaching, but the puppetmasters probably won’t lose a minute’s sleep over it. They’ll just find more puppets like they always do. Thanks for the reply, Pat. Spot on.

      • Joe Maxwell says:

        The next 30 years are going to be very hard for everyone around the world. Their are economical cycles converging that predict a world depression. We have entered into a Solar Minimum where it will get colder for 15 years where crops will fail and many will starve to death, There will civil unrest. The dollar is losing its reserve currency status and our government will not be able to borrow money and will have to go into default. All government programs, including Social Security and Medicare will stop being funded. The government will turn on us to save itself. WE could be in a new war we would not be able to afford. The states will have to default since money from the Federate Government will stop. I hope you will live through it.

      • Bruce O'ryan says:

        Well stated. Be safe as well.

  4. Brian Hodge says:

    Here’s my question (not that I agree with or support a lot of Obama’s policies, I’m am on the other hand a guy with a hate free heart who only agrees with and acknowledges FACTS BASED IN REALITY, which means I get my verifiable FACT based information from fact based souses not conspiracy nuts like Alex Jones who just pulls whatever he can pull out of his @$$/head to stroke the subject of his passionate mancrush/Donald Trump’s fragile ego or The right-wingnut’s Fox Propaganda Network, these places ARE NOT in the business of reporting facts and that is a easily verified fact. A fact that in itself shows that they are fully aware of THE FACT that that FACT AND REALITY is NOT in their favor at all nor does it serve them in any way at all so they prefer to avoid them at every turn and count on the group of people who if he were to tell them that Obama transformed himself in a cross between a demon and a bat and was hovering outside his window last night trying to intimidate him into not voting for Trump by throwing demonic fairy dust at him through his window, that group would be outraged beyond belief as they fumed over Obama the Demonic Muslim Bat intimidating such an honest “patriot” who is trying his best to ensure total chaos after Trump is defeated in November so he can also blame Obama for the Chaos that he and Trump has spent the last 15 months or so instigating that groups readiness to start a revolution this November because Trumps fragile ego was scared because they were mean to him and didn’t let him get his way, poor Donny? Now back to my question, although Obama has taken only a fraction, a small fraction that is of the vacation days in almost 2 full 4 year terms, 8 years total than Bush did in his first 2 years and only took more as time went on but all the Republicans, their conspiracy, propaganda and just plain ‘ol outright bold face lie outlets, along with their blind fact and reality blind parrot voters have repeatedly been calling Obama the “Vacationer in chief” since his 2nd week in office, but since Trump came along and attracted the passionate affections of Alex Jones and his war on actual information, aptly named InfoWars… All of a sudden Alex has Trump’s Trumpeters obsessed and outraged because “Obama is going to declare martial law so that he can stay in power”. So here is my question… Which one is it that you actually believe, not what you believed before or what you believed after Trump and Jones instructed you about what you were to start saying and believing but which do you actually believe?! Is Obama the “Vacationer In Chief” who only wants to take vacations and play golf or is Obama “A power hungry Dictator who will do anything it takes to stay in power”? You’ve all obsessed with the idea of one or the other since since he took office, depending on which one you were being told to say and believe at different times, so which one of these two very different, exact opposite characters do YOU believe he is? I know which one your being instructed to believe and say he is at this point but any one person can ONLY be one or the other, but not both. Just like a cat is a cat and can NOT be a dog in 20 seconds just because Trump and Jones prefer dogs to cats, your cat CAN NOT change into a dog and it certainly CAN NOT be both a cat and a dog! So which ONE do you people yourself believe he is, a man who only wants to take vacations and play golf or a power hungry tyrant who will do ANYTHING to stay in power?!! Also if he has always been so hell bent on destroying America, why did he just leave everything like Bush gave it to him, the seeds of destruction had already been planted, nourished, flourished and the harvest of complete destruction would have harvested themselves within the next couple of months without any effort at all but it sure did take A LOT of effort to prevent them from harvesting themselves. That’s documented and very easily verifiable historical FACT as well. Not just another altered reality ego boosting, critic bashing or just plain ‘ol right-wing nut conspiracy theory and or just another straight out self serving bold face lie… Just straight up FACT based REALITY, based on verifiable documented history from here on Planet Earth/THE REAL WORLD’S… REALITY!

    • Joe Maxwell says:

      I noticed you did not mention Hillary and the facts concerning the huge amount of information provided by the emails leaked by Wikileaks. Do you consider them as facts or part of the right wing conspiracy? The Deep State that runs our government and has been acknowledged by the FBI as the shadow government has put out its “facts” that we are supposed to believe. Are there any facts that are truly believable? History has also been rewritten to modify peoples beliefs for certain causes. The Democrats constantly do this from my own personal experience. Be careful not to be confused by the facts since your mind is already made up. Stop killing the messenger you disagree with.

    • Trish Kidwell says:

      You’re so wrong about Alex Jones. He’s real.

    • POTPA says:

      Obama has had more vacations than EVERY potus before him. He also golfed more rounds in 8 years then tiger woods has in a lifetime. Anybody here ever been to Italy? Probably cant afford it.Guess what ? Obamas teenage daughter has. Obama fired up the ole taxpayer airline and sent her and all her friends and family for her birthday on your dime. He has just about bankrupted the medical and medical insurance industries. Left open the borders exposing AMERICANS to danger ,crime and disease from illegals sneaking in. He has put our lives in danger sneaking in terrorists disguised as REFUGEES. He has coddled the muslim extremists and lectured AMERICANS about islamaphobia. He has pushed us to the brink of war and done more damage , including increasing the national debt , than ALL THE POTUS IN HISTORY COMBINED. BUT LET ME GUESS , 8 years later it is still bushes fault. The last 8 years were great if you were a homosxual transgender muslim illegal alien racist anti AMERICAN anti white communist. But for LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS IT HAS BEEN HELL. Especially if you are a white christian LEGAL AMERICAN!!!! Hillary will finish the job obama started. Or was it bush? You want to see what hillary and obama envision for US, just take a trip to afriica or mexico south america el salvador cuba . Mostly 3 rd world nation status. Wake up!!!!

  5. Brian Hodge says:

    Make up your mind is Obama “The Vacationer In Chief who only wants to take vacations and play golf” or is he the ” Tyrant who will do anything to stay power”? He can’t be both, but can ONLY be one or the other of the 100% opposite people!! Don’t be a parrot and just repeat whatever you hear from one minute to the next by your chosen propaganda network/Fox “News” and/or your favorite right wingnut conspiracy theory whackjob passionate Trump man crushing quack/Alex Jones. Actually think based on fact based reality if your able to remote view the REAL WORLD from the altered NON EXISTANT reality that Trump, Jones and Fox Propaganda Network has brainwashed you to see and decide which one he is…. IT CAN ONLY BE ONE, just like if you have a cat, it will always be a cat, even if tomorrow Trump or Jones were to tell you that they prefer dogs… You could not just turn your cat into a dog, and you certainly could not make it both a cat and a dog. You could imagine from the viewpoint of your altered reality that it was a dog but here in REALITY.. YOUR CAT WOULD STILL BE A CAT AND REALITY IS THE REAL WORLD EXISTANCE FOR ALL OF US REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU ARE TOLD THAT YOU ARE TO “THINK” THAT YOU THINK, THE REAL WORLD IS STILL REALITY AND FACTS ARE STILL FACTS WHETHER TRUMP AND JONES LIKE THEM OR NOT, DOES NOT CHANGE THE FACT THAT THEY ARE IN REALITY STILL REAL WORLD BASED FACTS AND THE ALTERED REALITY OF TRUMP UNIVERSE HAS NO AFFECT ON THE REAL WORLD AND/OR THE FACTS THAT EXIST WITHIN THE REAL WORLDS REALITY!!

    • Gary Wisecup says:


    • POTPA says:

      Hes a tyrant who will do whatever it takes to stay in power and office to continue taking free vacations !!!!!!! And continue to try to destroy AMERICA!!! From within. And what a wife . She speaks at mostly black events run by or for minorities. She talks of white people being racist and how the legend of white privelege has afforded white people all the opportunities while keeping tha black man down. Oh no ehat ya gonna do now. Go loot some stores rob some people and sucker punch some white people, preferably single senior citizens. I better apologize just in case , because im sure somehow its mine and bushes fault.

    • Susan says:

      Obama is a low IQ sock puppet. Period. That’s all you need to know. He’s an affirmative action hire, a cruelty joke on intelligent Americans. He’s incapable of anything other than vacations and golf.

    “The “targeting” of the DNC (Democratic National Convention) e-mails was assigned to the Russians and officially the Russian government has been accused by the administration of such, and trying to influence the presidential race on Friday, 10/14/16.”
    The thing is: Russia has vehemently denied the cyber attacks, and both Obama and Hillary are pushing this false narrative, which many believe is their justification for going to war with Russia. If that should happen, Obama would cancel the elections, thus, becoming President for Life?

  8. Andre says:

    I have been saying this for a year and a half. Oblamo will not except results unless hildabeast wins.

  9. Macssurvivalkits says:

    Seems to me that war with Russia can only take one course, nuclear. I think it would be damn near impossible for a conventional war to be fought between the U.S. and Russia since that would involve moving thousands of personnel and equipment across an ocean to the others doorstep. Remember the build up for the Gulf War took way too long and neither the U.S. or Russia is going to sit on it’s hands while the other brings troops over. So, with that in mind, it would be limited to air strikes/naval engagements or nuclear. Just my 2 cents.

  10. Alleged Comment says:

    Create the problem – offer the “final” solution. Where have we heard that before?

  11. Nam Marine says:

    Martial Law is a waste of time. They do not have enough people to do squat !

  12. thomas jefferson says:

    ALL anyone NEEDS to do is LOOK at how ADOLF HITLER came to power in germany,ITS about to happen HERE in america, the government KNOWS they’ll be put on trial for treason,and their scared to death, as they should be,THEIR putting everything in place to make it look like their the good guys,BUT MY DOGS going to be hungry….WE ALREADY KNOW,the same things that happened in WW2 will be done to americans ,with NO MERCY given to anyone,REMEMBER THESE FILTH ARE KILLING CHILDREN “NOW” what does anyone think they will be like when all restainsts are removed from them…HOW many will learn about the government FEMA DEATH CAMPS the hard way????THEY DO PLAN TO TORTURE and murder anyone who does suck them off on command,you women should really be scared,whats coming at you will be the same things that happened to the women in NAZI GERMAN prison camps………

  13. Jeff Bigham says:

    What’s the number of that exec order?

  14. wally63 says:

    Welcome to the United Soviet Socialist Satanic Stasi States of Amerika, Komrades!

  15. MDKTT20 says:

    why didn’t America do all this when Obama was elected ? makes you kind of wonder doesn’t it ? And do you really believe that the American People will stand by and let Obama do this ? I don’t think so. we will crush this act in its start. The People will stop this .

  16. DustyFae says:

    There are not many who wants war on USA soil. But Obama need to think hard on this because that will happen sooner or later, People are not going to sit and watch their love ones being killed by the government . There will also be a lot of government officials harmed. l would not want to see that.

  17. Dimitri Ledkovsky says:

    The Big Scare Articles will always get a healthy sized readership, maybe not all of it of sound mind. And the Comments section will swell. But this article is succinct and managed to scare more than others of its kind. Ah, but for fear. If we couldn’t experience it what would there be left to write about?

  18. Mathew Molk says:

    More unadulterated bullshit from a collage boy nut case.

    Go read the Poisse Comitatus act and then come back and tell us how Obama would pull it off.

  19. HAMMER says:

    And who pray tell do you think will have the power and or might to keep roughly 150 million ARMED Americas at bay and locked away in their homes…..The sheep sure but the warriors….NO WAY…..PERIOD…..KTN…..NO BBbbbbbAAAAAaaaa HERE…….

  20. inevitable says:

    Should O play this little game we shall see what we are made of, never pulled against the USA and never will Patriots are defined by heart and action, not the size of ones mouth.

  21. Susan says:

    Obama’s nothing but a token. He has no real power—he’s controlled by the moneyed interests that run the country; he’s their sock puppet. He’s incapable of anything but taking obscenely expensive vacations on the taxpayers’ dime and playing golf.

  22. Kinch says:

    In such circumstances as has been mentioned, which side would the armed forces be on?

  23. Jerre George says:

    I didn’t know that, except for myself, there were lucid, non-conspirisists (is that a word) on this site. I believe in being prepared, and I think that there is a possibility that bad things, such as EMPs, and of course riots (over anything) will happen in the not so distant future. But thinking that Obama is going to do any of this stuff is IMO ridiculous. Thank you for some sanity, “Not a Nutjob”.
