    Not at all. That takes power out of Bureaucratic hands. That is the opposite of what the Obama administration wants.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    martial law gives all the power to Obama. martial law gives the military the authority to achieve and maintain law and order. who is the commander and chief who is in charge of the military?

    Im interested in what you say, just not the color you say it in. The question still remains? What purpose is there in typing in blue?

    You certainly have a point there. Judging from the many many failures of the Fourth Estate during the last several decades in examining government, this does appear to be some form of karma.

    That said, AP might be the exception to the rule regarding the presstitute media. I'm not certain of that, but it's possible.

    In any event, this clearly demonstrates how the rule of law is dead-in-the-water in this country. The government does as it pleases, and the law be damned.

    Of course it does. Slap a big "terror" on the case and they can do anything.

    Now we know part of the reason AP wasn't invited to the background meeting. I have no doubt that any information gathered which isn't pertinent to the Justice dept. investigation will be destroyed. Right? I mean, the information from that number of reporters would be voluminous. Just like the information the feds gathered for universal background checks was going to be destroyed - that kind of thing.

    Precisely! If the war on terror is invoked, the Unpatriot Act nullifies the Fourth Amendment.

    Those of us objecting to The Act have been pointing this out for 11 years now.
