"But why are we bailing out the Bank of China? Why are we bailing out the Saudi royal family?...

CONFUSION WITH CONGRESSIONAL MARTIAL LAW

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared -congressional martial law- on Sept 27, 2008. Which is a procedural blanket that removes the rule requiring at least one day between the time a Bill is introduced in the House and the day a vote is taken.

Listen to congressman Michael Burgess [R-TX] addressing congressional martial law on Sept 28: "I understand we're under martial law as declared by the Speaker last night."

Read the BLANKET MARTIAL LAW RULE THROUGH MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH

That IS NOT the Martial Law that Brad sherman was referring to.

Brad Sherman was specifically referring to Martial Law IN AMERICA, IN THE NEAR FUTURE, not the Sept 27-29 procedural blanket.

Sherman would later confirm the nature of the threat (a National Emergency) on the Alex Jones show.

TRANSCRIPT

I thank the Chair. I have got 30 minutes, and I will share some with the gentlelady from Ohio in just a second to describe the flaws with this bill. Believe it or not, 30 minutes is not long enough. But first I want to mention about the calls that are coming into our office.

The calls used to be from people around the country. Now Wall Street firms have their employees unplugging those headsets to call investors and instead calling Members of Congress. So now the calls coming in to at least my office have shifted from 20-1 against this bailout package for Wall Street, down to about 3-1 or 4-1 against this bailout.

I ask my colleagues not to be confused. Edit out some of those calls that are coming to you from folks who are being paid to make the call, and you will realize the country remains absolutely overwhelmingly opposed to this Wall Street bailout bill.

I thank again the gentleman from Ohio, and I will make a few more points.

We had a meeting of the Skeptics Caucus, which is now a bipartisan Skeptics Caucus, where we heard from Bill Isaac. Mr. Isaac was Chair of the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation), having first been appointed to that board by President Carter and then appointed by Reagan. You don't find very many people who have support on both sides of the aisle like that.

The only way they can pass this bill is by creating and by sustaining a panic atmosphere.

That atmosphere is not justified. Many of us were told in private conversations, if we voted against this bill, that, on Monday, the sky would fall and that the market would drop 2,000 or 3,000 points the first day and another 2,000 the second day.

A few Members were even told that there would be martial law in America if we voted ``no.''
