Martial law is coming -- one city at a time
Help us to draw your sleeping countrymen a map
by Don Harkins
City councils all across the country are passing emergency powers ordinances --
all of which are nearly identical in form and content. The ordinances empower
the nation's unelected city administrators (city managers) to take complete
control of town functions during a declared state of emergency. The ordinances
also turn municipal emergency administrators into agents of the federal
government in the event of a declared state of national emergency.
The Idaho Observer became aware of this serious threat to our way of life in the
winter of 1998 and by the time we printed, "Has your city adopted this
'emergency' ordinance (The Idaho Observer, April, 1999)" the problem had become
While most sovereignty-conscious Americans are awaiting some overt sign that
will signal the commencement of a brave new age of global socialism, the
infrastructure for our collective enslavement is quietly being laid, city by
city, all across this still sleeping nation.
We believe that almost every city council in America has adopted such sweeping
emergency powers or is seriously considering granting themselves those powers.
The replacement of elected government officials with unelected administrators is
metropolitan government. Metropolitan government was exposed in the late 50s by
Jo Hindman (Terrible 1313, Terrible 1313 Revisited, The Metrocrats and Blame it
on Metro) and Joe Spenner in the early 90s (Rockefeller Regionalism: The Shadow
Behind Oregon's LCDC). This unconstitutional form of government is being
implemented all over the country -- particularly in the nation's more densely
populated areas such as Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle.
Metro is pitched to citizens as a way to reduce taxes by streamlining government
services in overlapping city, state and county jurisdictions. Unwitting citizens
then vote to provide for the hiring of "expert professionals" to eliminate
costly redundancies in government services. Once in office, these unelected
"experts" begin exercising ever-increasing amounts of policy-making power over
an ever-widening spectrum of municipal activity.
The true purpose of metropolitan government, as stated by its architects, is to
replace elected officials who are answerable to the citizen at the voting booth
with hired professionals who are answerable only to those few people in a
community who are able use their power and influence to secure the appointment
of preferred professionals.
According to several municipal emergency powers ordinances we have seen, the
city manager, upon assumption of emergency powers in a declared state of
emergency, is empowered to shut down utilities, close stores, barricade streets,
declare curfews, ration food and other necessary items and mobilize police
agencies and soldiers. The non-elected city manager will also be the point man
to interface with federal agencies such as the Federal Emergency Management
In a declared state of national emergency, FEMA has been granted, through
legislation and executive orders such as EO 12919, the power to take control of
and administrate crises on a national level.
FEMA will dictate the activities of your emergency-empowered administrator and
will allocate emergency funding to your community based upon its level of
cooperation with federal agencies.
While most of America sleeps and while those of us who are awake are awaiting an
obvious sign that the New World Order has arrived, the groundwork for the
military occupation of America is being laid by our local leaders.
Strength in numbers
Between readers of The Idaho Observer and other concerned Americans all over
this country who subscribe to alternative publications, there is at least one of
us in almost every town from coast to coast. However loosely affiliated, we
represent the only group of Americans who are positioned to stop the quiet
construction of occupational machinery in our beloved country.
Go to your city hall. Find out if your city has passed an emergency powers
ordinance or if passage of such an ordinance is being considered. The ordinance
will be publicly available at city hall as a part of your city's municipal code.
Some cities have a website that posts city codes and other public information.
Make two copies of the ordinance; keep one for your records and send the other
to: The Idaho Observer, PO Box 1353, Rathdrum, Idaho 83858-1353. Include your
name and a phone number where you can be reached in case verification becomes
We will then, on a map of the United States, stick pins in the towns whose
elected officials have passed model ordinances that give dictatorial power to an
unelected city manager or city administrator during a declared state of
We need to have copies of these ordinances postmarked by March 15, 2000, so that
we can process this information and alert the nation by May 15, 2000.
It is our duty as Americans to expose the machinery that is being built to
facilitate the occupation of our sovereign states by federal forces. Please take
charge of finding the emergency powers ordinance in your city and help us in
this most urgent endeavor.
