Tucson declares state of emergency & effective martial law

Rate this post

On Feb. 20, 2013, the Democratic mayor (I didn’t make this up: his last name is Rothschild!) and the city council of Tucson, Arizona, adopted a curious resolution, No. 22006, which:

  • Declares a state of “emergency” in the city; and
  • Effectively imposes martial law on the city.

The Resolution reads:

“Now therefore be it resolved by the mayor and council of the City of Tucson, as follows:

SECTION 1. That the City of Tucson Mayor and Council hereby recognizes and supports the missions and long term viability of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and the leadership of Monthan to make the appropriate decisions when balancing National Security and community needs when it comes to their existing and future military mission and assignments.”

In other words, the resolution gives no say to the people of Tucson or their supposed representatives in the city government, but instead “the City of Tucson Mayor and Council” is leaving the decisions that may impact the city’s “community needs” entirely to “the leadership” of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. In so doing, the City of Tucson Mayor and Council are ceding their authority to the military authority — “the leadership” of a U.S. Air Force base.
Despite Tucson not being in a natural disaster, nor are its citizens in imminent danger, Resolution No. 22006 declares a state of emergency for the sole purpose of making the ceding of civil authority to the military authority at Davis-Monthan Air Force to be effective immediately.
That means, as of two weeks ago, Tuczon is under effective martial law (although a municipality technically cannot declare martial law because a city government does not command martial forces), because “a state of emergency” means its citizens’ constitutional rights are suspended.
The PDF of Resolution 22006 does not enable copying, so I took screenshots of the three pages instead (click the screenshots to enlarge):

Here are the members of Tucson’s City Council:

There is a petition to Congress in objection and to protest Tucson’s Resolution No. 22006. The petition warns that the resolution “is an ‘experiment’ in seeing how the American Public will respond to this act of Martial Law,” and “If Americans do nothing and say nothing, (which is what The Powers That Be are counting on) what happened in Tucson, will happen in another city…and another…..and another……… Until….”

UPDATE (Mar. 7):

FOTM reader Sunny called the Tucson mayor’s office. Sunny writes:
“I just called the mayor’s office and point blank asked if their city was under martial law….the lady immediately said, ‘Yes’. When I asked for her name, she asked me to hold and a man came on saying she ‘misunderstood’ my question. I asked, ‘How could she ‘misunderstand’ such a simple question?’ He denied that there was ‘martial law’ per se, only that the military had been given permission to help enforce laws. Exasperated, I told him that WAS martial law….then went on to say, ‘You sound young. You better wake up to what is happening right in front of your face, or your children and grandchildren won’t HAVE the so-called freedoms we enjoy.’”

UPDATE (Mar. 13):

The link to Resolution no. 22006 no longer works. So I went looking for an explanation on the Tucson city government website and found this:

Re: the DM Memorial Resolution

From COT Media Inquiries Re: Resolution No. 22006 Supporting DM – Various Media

City Attorney Mike Rankin spoke with the media, as well as multiple individual requestors, in response to inquiries about the effect of the Mayor and Council approval of the Resolution in support of DMAFB, approved on February 20. Mike explained that the Resolution is an expression of support for DMAFB and its leadership. It doesn’t approve any agreement, or action, and it does not give any authority to DM that it doesn’t otherwise have. Mike also answered questions about the emergency clause, and explained that the emergency clause makes the resolution go into effect immediately; without the emergency clause, ordinances and resolutions do not go into effect for 30 days and publication in the newspaper. The emergency clause does NOT equate to a declaration that the City is in a state of emergency, or that it has been placed under martial law.
In effect, Mike Rankin is saying “We didn’t mean it!” Resolution no. 22006’s declaration of a state of emergency doesn’t really mean the city is in a state of emergency. The mayor and city council saying they have complete confidence in any decision/policy made by the Air Force Base’s — even those that impact “community needs” — doesn’t really mean martial law.
Okidokee! This really clarifies everything!
So what exactly is the point of Resolution 22006? The citizens of Tucson should demand an explanation why that resolution was written, worded the way it was worded, and approved in the first place.

  1. The Tuscon City residents need a petition demanding the resignation of their mayor. They need to show up in force at the city meetings.
    A petition requesting suspension of the dictatorial “resolution, No. 22006,” isn’t going far enough. The citizen residents and others need to find ways and methods to influence city gov’t and its mayor to immediately withdraw this local abomination. Perhaps, one of those ways and methods is to make demands to county and state officials. Not appeals, but, demands.

     
    • Dressage Rider

      Are you talking about impeachment?

       
      • Dressage – In response to your March 8 11:57 pm comment:
        Impeachment sounds good. Basically, whatever is within the realm of good morality to ride him out of town. [Unseat from office, his sorry behind] Or, they could give him an option. Make full repudiation and reversal of what he has done so that he and the city council can completely change their cowardly and anti-patriotic decision of handing over the town’s governance to the air force base…..

         
          • Dressage Rider –
            Isn’t it more appropriate to call it a “recall election?” If a certain number of voter signatures are secured, a recall election then can be had to unseat this mayor and the city council members responsible for this martial law type abomination.
            I don’t know how small Tucson is, but I suspect that if concerned residents went ahead with a recall vote petition that the one side would be distributing monies under the local table to keep the recall from becoming successful. I suppose it is called “buying votes.”

             
  2. I posted to twitter and facebook and emailed legislators…….the word has to get out about this, now…

     
    • When I stated that the “residents and others need to find ways and methods to influence city gov’t and its mayor to immediately withdraw this local abomination,.” – such ways and methods would not preclude revving up a resident taxpayer’s news page devoted to the whole issue itself. Such practicals that could be published and distributed city-wide would be (already known) realities of the mayor and city officials who handed over the city’s democratic process to the Air force base. Such realities to be published could include:
      * Names and street addresses of the Mayor and those involved
      * License plate numbers of the mayor and others involved
      * The routine schedule and / or public places the mayor and those responsible, frequent
      Other things that can be done, are:
      * Organizing picket groups to protest 24/7 in front of the mayor’s home and office using the public sidewalks.
      * Searching out the public past of the mayor and those involved; – and publishing all.
      The whole idea of all the above (and then, some) is to visit upon the mayor and those involved in the the city’s loss of the democratic process, a clear presence of non comfortable reality. If the mayor and his cronies can visit the city with the uncomfortable presence of [like] martial law; then, they themselves need to feel a certain degree of loss of privacy and security on their part. The old adage is in play here: “What’s good for the goose, is good for the gander.”
      “greenworx” – Could you tweet certain people other than the intrusive mayor and his cronies this very excellent Fellowship of the Minds article? The city’s citizens need to know that there are ways and methods to deal with their loss of freedom. They should spare no earnest and honorable effort to target the ones responsible with transparency and accountability for their actions which has resulted in the citizen loss of democracy and local autonomy.
      Finally, I just mentioned some basic “ways and methods” to help effect a favorable outcome. My conveyed ideas (here), aren’t the only possibilities……..

       
      • Curiosity, not animosity – would you happen to know, or be, the Profit Nathan? Such a weird coincidence that I friended him on FB and now I see your name and you’re both very dedicated pastors. If so, your “All That Glitters…” has answered a LOT of questions for me.

         
        • Christine –
          You mean “prophet?” If so, I have never (to my recollection knowledge) called myself a prophet. I am only an emeritus Christian pastor who operates 2 websites, posting on the one my topical Christian messages and other Christian material. Are you referring to the message I haven’t yet gotten around to updating with additional pics, captions, internal links and minor editing? Is it this one [below]?
          “Sincerity is no Substitute for Substance – All that Glitters is not Gold”
          https://www.thechristianmessage.org/2011/07/sincerity-is-no-substitute-for.html
          Christine – your name really sounds familiar. But, I just checked my Facebook friends list and you aren’t on there. If you will, please send me a FB friend request.
          Finally, I’m gratified (if the aforementioned message) helped you. Please feel free to submit a comment after the message.

           
  3. How bizarre is that? I wonder if it is somethign in the water, or if these people were chem sprayed one too many times.

     
  4. Why isn’t Jan Brewer stepping in?

     
  5. She is the Governor!

     
  6. The drug cartel may have been an influence on making this happen. There is a serious amount of drug traffic in this city. Nobody wants to drive residents away by revealing it. That may help in understanding what’s happening.

     
  7. Not to mention also that many illegals were released from prison!!! I haven’t heard how many have been released from Az prisons. I think they are trying to keep it hush hush. I went out grocery shopping today and seen nothing out of the ordinary. I live here in Tucson!

     
    • Oh you poor girl! I guess you’ll be front lines on this to keep us informed here if anything in your town changes or is suspicious. I’ll be praying for you for sure! Hope you won’t be forced to “watch your step” or “watch your mouth”! It’ll soon come to that for ALL of us, both patriot AND Christian!

       
  8. Interesting name that mayor has . I wonder if he’s part of the ” bloodline” or his last name a mere coincidence .

     
  9. I signed the petition, and as I live in a state so blue God created the state and THEN named the color “blue”, my letter to my congresscritters will fall on mighty deaf ears, but this is what I added to the letter. Some is “alright, that makes sense”, some will be “wha??” cuz it’s local. I’m sure it’ll make sense either way.

    Dear Representative Delaney:
    Dear Senator Cardin:
    Dear Senator Mikulski:
    I realize none of you care about this, being Democrats and supporting the take over of our country by any means possible to accomplish President Obama’s goals, but I will send this to you anyway. I also know [you] gerrymandered our county/district to make sure it flips blue and stays that way until the end of time, therefore our voices will never count. However, I will STILL continue to speak truth to power. What has happened to Tuscon could easily happen here – or how about in Martinsburg WV because they house the 167th Airlift Wing? Close enough for comfort? Although I do realize that this town I name is in another state altogether, it could still happen to any of us. I also realize that this is what the Democrats (and some Republicans – all politicians are alike under the skin) have been trying to do – make this entire country over into a “state of emergency”, so that we can be put under Marshall law. Well, a few of us are going to stand in your way as long as possible. No violence implied or stated, none considered. We intend to keep you focused on our Constitution and Bill of Rights and never let you forget that this is AMERICA and while we are a nation of laws, it WON’T be “Marshall Law”! Not in Tuscon, not here, not ANY where in America!!
    Christine Hall

     
  10. Oh I also posted a link on my FB page to this blog as well as a description that I hope will catch my FB friends’ eyes. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for keeping us all informed about these things!

     
  11. “The Resolution cedes all authority to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and its leadership “to make the appropriate decisions when balancing National Security and community needs when it comes to their existing and future military mission and assignments.”
    I see nothing in the “resolution” that does this. It only “recognizes and supports” the mission. There is no “cession” of powers at all.

     
    • From the Resolution:
      “Now therefore be it resolved by the mayor and council of the City of Tucson, as follows:
      SECTION 1. That the City of Tucson Mayor and Council hereby recognizes and supports the missions and long term viability of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and the leadership of Monthan to make the appropriate decisions when balancing National Security and community needs when it comes to their existing and future military mission and assignments.”

      In other words, “the City of Tucson Mayor and Council” is leaving the decisions that may impact the city’s “community needs” entirely to “the leadership” of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. If that isn’t ceding authority, I don’t know what is.
      At a minimum, the citizens of Tucson should demand a legal clarification of the Resolution’s language.

       
      • But there has to be a “declared” national emergency, which as yet, there is not.
        What would be appropriate in this case would be to approach the state attorney general and have a decision based on the limits the 10th Amendment places on the federal government, and particularly, on the military.
        It would also be a violation in my mind as to whether the 3rd Amendment would have been infringed.

         
        • Cities and states can declare a state of emergency without there being a national emergency, but they do that only when there’s danger to the public as in a natural disaster, like New Orleans because of Katrina. There, the authorities went around confiscating firearms from citizens.
          But this Tucson resolution declares an emergency although there is no natural disaster or public danger, but for no reason other than to make the resolution effective immediately.

           
          • According to Tucson’s legal advisor… the Mayor and City Council pass MOST resolutions appending this clause! In fact, this clause has been abused numerous times by other M&Cs in Arizona.
            We live in “outlaw” country after all! 😉

             
  12. This was my letter to my senators…oh, and I called the Tucson mayor’s office and got an INTERESTING reply….
    March 7, 2013
    Dear Representative Harper:
    Dear Senator Cochran:
    Dear Senator Wicker:
    Senators Cochran and Wicker:
    I believe that it is in your best interest to read this letter to its completion, and thank you, in advance.
    “On February 20, 2013, the Tucson, Arizona City Council passed a resolution allowing the U.S. Air Force to “make appropriate decisions when balancing National Security and community needs when it comes to their existing and future military mission and assignments.”
    “In other words, the resolution allows the military to reject decisions made by the people of Tucson.”
    The resolution can be viewed here:
    https://www.tucsonaz.gov/sirepub/cache/2/wezfxsa4yhavqai1a3apix55/506099903042013041039767.PDF
    Further reported
    “The resolution is posted on the Tucson government website (as of this writing) and further states that it “is necessary for the preservation of the peace, health and safety of the City of Tucson that this Resolution become immediately effective, an emergency is hereby declared to exist and this Resolution shall be effective immediately upon its passage and adoption.”
    “In short, the Council has imposed what for all practical purposes is a declaration of martial law on the residents of Tucson.”
    This is outrageous. I am appalled and understand very clearly that this is an “experiment” in seeing how the American Public will respond to this act of Martial Law.
    If Americans do nothing and say nothing, (Which is what The Powers That Be are counting on) What happened in Tuscon, will happen in another city…and another…..and another………
    I want you to know that I OPPOSE THIS! I just called the mayor’s office and point blank asked if their city was under martial law….the lady immediately said, “Yes”. When I asked for her name, she asked me to hold and a man came on saying she “misunderstood” my question. I asked, “How could she ‘misunderstand’ such a simple question?” He denied that there was “martial law” per say, only that the military had been given permission to help enforce laws. Exasperated, I told him that WAS martial law….then went on to say, “You sound young. You better wake up to what is happening right in front of your face, or your children and grandchildren won’t HAVE the so-called freedoms we enjoy.”
    I’m ALSO disgusted that BOTH of my supposed conservative senators voted YEA for the NDAA and approved the continued support of the F16 and such to Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood…you DO know what their website states, right?
    I have always voted down the party line, but NO MORE, and to the BEST of my ability will inform EVERYONE I know and SHOW them the proof in voting records who is ACTUALLY for the people.
    Thank you for your time and don’t bother getting back in touch with me….I will be watching your record and actions…that will tell me all I need to know.

      Thank you, Sunny. I’m updating this post with the responses you got from the Tucson mayor’s office!

       
      • Thank you, Dr. Eowyn! I pray that office will be FLOODED with calls.

         
      • Not to mention that contravenes the Posse Comitatus Act!! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posse_Comitatus_Act) Tucson CANNOT legally cede power to the Armed Forces w/o the governor of that state requesting, from the President, the right to use (and ONLY use) the state’s National Guard, no troops, unless maybe like something like Katrina cuz it was so huge and devastating. That I’m not sure of.
        And I KNOW, for a fact, that it was the governor of LA (the state, not the city in CA), that requested the NG troops, because if you recall, Mayor Nagy caught 17 kinds of [heck] from the public cuz he waited until practically the storm was dumping on them before he came up w/ a good idea (school buses taking the non-vehicular people out of the city) but ran it like a three legged goose w/ grease for brains! It simply CANNOT be done no matter WHAT that man said!
        And I take away a dire warning from his words, “Shut up before YOU lose your rights to address issues and retain your First Amendment rights!” Sure sounded that way to me!!

  14. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this incredible post. My reading of the Resolution also differs all local community power and rights to the military, even though there is no emergency!

  16. Charles Farley

    To say that the Mayor and City Council “recognize” and “support” the “military leadership’s decisions” concerning “community needs” with regard to “existing and future assignments” is a bit breath taking. What business is it of a military leader to make decisions regarding the needs of a civilian community? From dictionary.com, the definition for “recognize”, in this context, is “to acknowledge as the person entitled to speak”. Also from dictionary.com, the definition of “support” is “to undergo or endure, especially with patience or submission; tolerate.” It is no stretch of the imagination that this could easily be interpreted to mean that the Mayor and City Council are “yielding the floor” so-to-speak. The fact that R22006 says “both existing and future” leaves it open-ended and with no time-frame. Certainly an attorney would never draft such an indefinite measure. The way that Resolution 22006 is worded is vague, to say the least. And when it comes to legally binding documents, there is no room for vague language. Resolution 22006 also states that city officials and employees are “authorized” and “directed” to give this Resolution “effect”. “Directed” to give this Resolution “effect”? Why would a “ceremonial measure” need to be given “effect”, when “effect” in this context is defined as “the state of being operative or functional; operation or execution; accomplishment or fulfillment”? (also from dictionary.com) Mayor Rothschild is a very bright attorney according to everything that I have read, so I find it “somewhat comical” that this caliber of attorney would allow such a language to be even considered. Ponder this… What if the military leadership decided that it was a necessity for the community of Tucson (outside of the Base) to have check points? What if that same military leadership decided that local law-enforcement couldn’t do the job, so members of the military would man the check points? Who would the people of Tucson complain to? What if the “military leadership” then decided that the City Council needed to be replaced with compliant-military sub-ordinates? I know that this sounds far-fetched to some, but it is well within the realm of possibility, especially given the vague nature of the verbiage used in the document. Perhaps the caveat that, “this Resolution in no way grants any authority whatsoever to the military, or to any other entity, as Resolution 22006 is ceremonial and nothing else” could have been added so that constructive authority on the part of the “military leadership” would not even be possible. The way that it written is vague and open to interpretation. Perhaps the citizens of Tucson should review every Resolution and Ordinance currently in effect, because if anything else is worded anywhere near this vaguely, it could potentially cause a serious problem for the city. To mitigate future risk, perhaps the citizens should reconsider whom they elect next voting cycle.

     
    • Excellent point, Charles, about the curiosity of attorney Mayor Jonathan Rothschild being instrumental in the drafting of this poorly- and vaguely-languaged resolution!

       
  17. Pastor, that reallly disappoints me about Jan Brewer. I thought she was more than that!

     
    • upaces88 –
      Jan Brewer is a smoker and a church member of one of the Lutheran synods. As such, it has been my observation, along with her snubbing citizen “birthers,” that she is like most politicians; maintain the status quo even if it means not judging righteously. The profession of her Christian faith does not get in her way of being politically correct.
      Now, be that as it may – Brewer can smoke until she is blue in the face and commit (possible) slow suicide. That is her business. But, I’m always suspicious of someone who talks in such a gruff voice.
      upaces88 – I hope my above stated thoughts help you form a healthy opinion of the Governor politician…………..

       
  18. @Pastor and Nathan…I am realllly sorry to hear that. I, honestly, believed she was more than that. I am VERY disappointed in hearing about her in this light.
    Well, I will accept what you say, of course, Nathan. It just realllly disappointments me. I had TOO much faith her her; but, I do believe you.

     
  19. Dressage Rider

    I hope all of you know that Tucson is very close to Fort Huachuca which is the home of the UAV, besides the home of the U.S. Army Intelligence Center.

     
  20. Tucson’s city attorney issued a press release, saying in effect “We didn’t mean it!” Resolution no. 22006’s declaration of a state of emergency doesn’t really mean the city is in a state of emergency. The mayor and city council saying they have complete confidence in any decision/policy made by the Air Force Base, even those that impact “community needs,” doesn’t really mean martial law.
    Okidokee! This really clarifies everything!
    So what exactly is the point of Resolution 22006? The citizens of Tucson should demand an explanation why that resolution was written, worded, and approved in the first place.
