The conservative movement is dead because it no longer has a reason to exist.

Intellectual conservatism is no longer the razor wire defending the trenches of the middle -class.
At best, it is a tangled mess left over from the battle. Increasingly it is seen as the top part of the fences the managerial class has erected around us. America is no longer a self-governing republic under assault. It is a custodial state, a nation-scale version of the Stanford Prison Experiment.... The conservative movement is dead because it no longer has a reason to exist. Whether or not something replaces it is debatable, but if that does happen, it will not be a defensive crouch. it will be an ideology appealing to insurgents and revolutionaries. It will be the credo of those who take joy in throwing sand in the gears of the big machine. The Dead Right | The Z Blog

Looks like the criminal cabal is upping the protection for their on-going crushing of any French revolution type outbreaks here in Amerika.

And just who is going to enforce this martial law? Give me some numbers, the number of troops in the street.

Who says all the troops, police, and 'first responders' will come out on the government's side.

This would be against an armed populace, very different from the banana republic tinhats crushing a bunch of unarmed peasants. And it would be of the worse type where the 'enemy' looks like you, uses the same language and dresses like you.

To paraphrase the Chairman, We swim in those waters, invisible to the oppressor. In asymmetric warfare, governments have a terrible record of winning. On their own soil, they'll just make more enemies of the population as they try to quell the fires.
