Rumor: U.S. Army colonel on Obama’s martial law plan

I was forwarded a disturbing email from a “Bud Parker, U.S. Army, retired,” who claims that his source — a U.S. Army colonel — says Obama is planning to impose martial law under the pretext of restoring law and order, after America had descended into chaos and disorder that, in part, had been engendered by racial strife fomented by Obama himself and allies like George Soros.

I can’t confirm the authenticity of Bud Parker or what he claims. But, given blogger and radio show host Dave Hodges’ recent post on a recently retired Lt. General who told him [Hodges] of a coming civil war as a result of major portions of the U.S. military refusing to participate in the subjugation of the American people by force, I decided to publish Bud Parker’s email.

In so doing, my intention is not to cause fear or panic. Rather, my abiding belief is that to be forewarned is to be fore-armed. If there’s even a chance that what Bud Parker says is true, the best way to puncture Obama’s martial law plan is to expose it to sunlight.

Note: I did an Internet search for “Bud Parker, retired U.S. Army” and found a James A. “Bud” Parker on LinkedIn, where he identifies himself as a Chevron offshore logistics coordinator and a retired U.S. Army first sergeant. He’s also the author of an article on BeforeIt’sNews.

Below is Bud Parker’s email of May 23, 2015.

Email by Bud Parker:

When I asked my colleague the Army Colonel why he thinks Obama is doing this, the reply I received from this life-long soldier and Army leader shocked me.

Paraphrasing him, this is what he told me in a nutshell.

He said, most branches of the service routinely engage in war “games” and come up with strategies and tactics on how to handle every type of military conflict and scenario that can be imagined.  One of the big new battle scenarios being actively discussed in the military recently is how to handle civil unrest in the U.S. and fighting in the streets.  What will the Army do if called in to fight armed civilians in the streets of the United States?  How will that urban warfare be conducted?  Will troops be able to fire upon other American citizens when the troops take an oath to protect American citizens?

He said many in the military are discussing the very real possibility that Obama will attempt to stay in office beyond two terms.  It is being speculated that Obama will do this by declaring a state of martial law.  The easiest way to declare martial law is when there is massive civil unrest and riots throughout the U.S.  Thus, it is believed that Obama, and his regime, will intentionally create a situation of massive civil unrest.  Some believe he has already started to implement that strategy by forcing Obamacare on everyone (when the populace did not ask for it and less than 300 people in power voted for it). Perhaps the Obama Administration is not too concerned over the totally dysfunctional Obamacare website and the additional fact that millions will be dropped from their existing insurance policies which they already had and liked.  The Obama Administration may not care if getting health care becomes more difficult and more expensive because it is all leading toward civil unrest.  It is believed by some that Obamacare will only get worse and worse, and then in 2 to 3 years when people have a very difficult time getting medical treatment for themselves or their loved ones, people will get enraged.

Moreover, it is being speculated that around the same time when the frustration levels over Obamacare are hitting a critical point in 2 to 3 years, there will be a “glitch” in the welfare payment (or EBT) payment system.  The tens of millions who rely on EBT handouts to sustain themselves will be cut off.  The overwhelming majority of the EBT recipients are Black.  The Obama regime will then blame the “glitch” on the Republicans, i.e., Republicans froze government spending which “forced” Obama to suspension of EBT payments. (Obama will intentionally drive spending up and up uncontrolled knowing full well that one day the Republicans will be backed into a corner and finally vote for a freeze in spending.) Obama will create heightened racial tension by telling everyone that the White Republicans are racially motivated and did this to hurt the Black community.  This manufactured racial tension, combined with growing tensions over the then-collapsing medical coverage due to Obamacare, will result in race wars and civil unrest.  People will take to the streets.

By the way, you should know that my colleague, the Army Colonel who is telling me all this, is Black.  He specifically commented, and outwardly expressed his embarrassment, about how Blacks have become so dependent and enslaved by the welfare system and the Democrats that it would be very easy to create civil unrest and race wars merely by cutting off, or dramatically hindering, EBT payments for only a month or so.  He believes that most Blacks, who have a misguided sense of entitlement, will then take to looting stores and rioting. Once the race wars, civil unrest, and violence becomes pervasive throughout the U.S., Obama will declare martial law and take over.  Elections can, and will, be postponed under martial law.

My colleague noted that this possibility is clearly being analyzed and discussed inside the military because such a martial law strategy is nothing new.  Tyrannical and dictatorial leaders in the past have done the martial law strategy many times.  He noted that dictators such as Stalin, Mussolini, and Hitler did basically the identical thing.  He went on to say that one of the most recent examples of this strategy was when Marcos declared martial law in the Philippines from 1972-1981 due to civil unrest.  The Philippines had democratic elections up until that time.  When martial law was declared, the Philippine constitution was suspended, its Congress dissolved, all elections were suspended, and Marcos remained in power for years beyond his elected term. The alleged “terrorist bombings” that occurred in the Philippines, which lead to Marcos declaring martial law, have always been questioned and never proven to be the acts of actual terrorists.

He concluded by saying that many believe this is the real reason behind the purging of military generals.  The older members of the military, and especially its generals and leaders, tend to be more conservative and they believe in the Constitution—and following the Constitution.  Thus, a tyrant and dictator needs to get rid of these military leaders before a state of martial law is declared if the rising dictator wants the military to follow along and do what the dictator says.  Due to the loss of many experienced military leaders the past few years, the military is now being run and guided more and more by younger, inexperienced leaders. The type who won’t really know what to do if martial law was declared.  Moreover, he noted that there is a growing mindset throughout the military now that every soldier needs to keep quiet and just follow along with what Obama says and wants to do or you will be fired and your military career ruined.  Again, I was told this is nothing new since removing strong military leaders in advance of declaring martial law is a historically-proven element of a rising tyrant and dictator.

Was Sandy Hook a “false flag” operation by the Obama regime?

It is now more than two weeks since the horrible massacre of 20 little children and 6 adults in Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, Connecticut.

Shocking though it was, the massacre already is beginning to recede from news headlines and our consciousness, Americans being prone to short attention spans. Except for the Left’s exploitation of the terrible tragedy to redouble their perennial calls for “gun control.” Make hay while the sun shines! For as Obama’s former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel instructs, one should never let a crisis go to waste.

But there are those, prone to skepticism and suspicion, who are not letting Sandy Hook fade away. They are asking if Sandy Hook and other recent mass shootings (Batman and Sikh temple) are “false flag” incidents — events contrived and manipulated by government in order to provoke mass fear and panic that are then used to achieve some covert agenda.

Such skeptics are dismissed as conspiracy kooks by the establishment media. I am not a conspiracist for this reason: If they are right, it means there are people so utterly evil that they would stoop to killing innocent little children to achieve their political ends. That in turn means our government is in the hands of people so malevolent and diabolical, calling them psychopaths doesn’t even begin to describe what they are. That is a frightening thought.

No matter how dubious you and I are about the conspiracy nuts, they are asking very troubling questions that demand answers. Those questions are reducible to one:

If 20-year-old Adam Lanza indeed was the lone gunman who single-handedly killed 28 people in Newtown (26 in Sandy Hook, as well as his mother and himself), why are there reports of other suspicious individuals at the scene?

Here are the reports:

1. In this audio recording on the night of the Sandy Hook massacre of unedited Newtown Police and Fire Dept. and Connecticut State Police radio traffic, you will hear the police referring to two strange individuals seen wearing ski masks and a nun outfit:

Beginning at the 1:34:19 mark, a male voice says “Danbury’s reporting a vehicle, a purple van, two occupants with possible ski masks that may be involved in this incident.”

At 1:35:07 into the audio, referring to the two occupants in the purple van, the same male voice says “One may be wearing a nun outfit, headed toward Danbury and Stoney Hill, purple van”.

The audio recording was provided by Radioreference.com and uploaded onto YouTube by Radioman911.com who writes: “There is information about two occupants in a van which turned out to be either unrelated or unfounded. There is also speculation that some unintelligible radio traffic that seems to contain the word ‘Adam’ is referring to the suspect. The word Adam is the police phonetic alphabet for the letter ‘A’, often used as part of a unit identifier.”

2. In this next video, an eyewitness told CBS News that he saw police lead a “grown man” “out of the woods” “in handcuffs”. The man was “wearing camo (camouflage) pants and a dark jacket” and was still sitting in front of the police car as they spoke. The eyewitness said as the man was led past him, the man said “I didn’t do it.”

Who is the man who was handcuffed and taken into police custody? Why didn’t CBS News follow up on this story?

Update (1/26/2012):

It is said the man in camo pants is Chris Manfredonia, a father of one of the students allegedly on his way to the Sandy Hook school to bake gingerbread cookies with students. But then the Newtown Bee reported that the man was an off-duty tactical squad police officer: “A man with a gun who was spotted in the woods near the school on the day of the incident was an off-duty tactical squad police officer from another town, according to the source.” However, Intelhub. points out that the timeline indicates that the camo guy would have to be hanging around int he woods almost 3 hours after the massacre. Why would either a parent or an off-duty police officer be doing that? The man’s name was never revealed to the media, and with the media everywhere that fateful day, why is there no video of this man, although such footage reportedly exists.

3. In this next video, another eyewitness, a boy, says as he and other school children “ran down to the firehouse,” he saw “a man pinned down to the ground with handcuffs on.” Was this the same man “wearing camo pants” whom the CBS eyewitness had seen, or is he yet another suspect?

4. Dave Hodges, who describes himself as “an award winning psychology, statistics and research professor, a college basketball coach, a mental health counselor, a political activist and writer who has published dozens of editorials and articles in several publications such as Freedoms Phoenix, News With Views and The Arizona Republic,” writes in the Activist Post, Dec. 28, 2012:

“Former FBI informant, Larry Grathwohl, an infiltrator of Obama’s original backers from the Weathermen Underground with Bill Ayers, has also told me that the word on the street is that two teachers took down Lanza. Another unnamed source told me that there were at least 3 other shooters, not including Lanza. I must say that the evidence is compelling as we listen to the raw police radio recordings where the police are clearly stating that they have two shooters in custody, after two teachers reported seeing two shooters run by the gym.”

These reports by police (audio recording) and civilian eyewitnesses of other suspects may just be false sightings and false arrests of innocent suspects which often happen in the midst of traumatic and very chaotic events like Sandy Hook.

Or they may not.

If they are bogus, Newtown police should publicly and convincingly counter these rumors — if only to prove that “false flag” conspiracists really are nuts. But then, nearly five months after the Sikh temple shooting in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, the police still haven’t countered eyewitness reports of multiple gunmen (“a four-man team in a coordinated attack”) instead of a lone gunman, who did the killing.

Then there’s this sane-looking eyewitness who said James Holmes wasn’t alone but “had someone with him” in that dark Century movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. Why? Because there was a second can of tear gas which didn’t come from the side of the theater where Holmes was.

Is our government capable of perpetrating these evil deeds for “false flag” purpose?

I don’t want to think so. But then I remind myself that there are human beings who are that evil. Just ask the millions of innocent men, women, and children whom the Nazis killed, and the hundreds of millions of innocent men, women, and children whom the Communists killed in the Soviet Union, People’s Republic of China, and in North Korea today….
