A state of emergency is a situation in which a government is empowered to perform actions that it would normally not be permitted. A government can declare such state during a disaster, civil unrest, or armed conflict. Such declaration alerts citizens to change their normal behavior and orders government agencies to implement emergency plans.

The United States has been in an uninterrupted state of national emergency since 1979.   In 2014, we’re not dealing with just one emergency – there are currently 30 of them in effect.

“Those emergencies, declared by the president by proclamation or executive order, give the president extraordinary powers — to seize property, call up the National Guard and hire and fire military officers at will.”

Martial law is the suspension of civil authority and the imposition of military authority. When we say a region or country is “under martial law,” we mean to say that the military is in control of the area, that it acts as the police, as the courts, as the legislature. The degree of control might vary — a nation may have a civilian legislature but have the courts administered by the military. Or the legislature and courts may operate under civilian control with a military ruler. In each case, martial law is in effect, even if it is not called “martial law.”

I is often argued that only Congress can declare martial law.  The President, however, is commander-in-chief of the military, and it has been argued that the President can take it upon himself to declare martial law.   In these times, Congress may decide not to act, effectively accepting martial law by failing to stop it; Congress may agree to the declaration, putting the official stamp of approval on the declaration; or it can reject the President’s imposition of martial law, which could set up a power struggle between the Congress and the Executive that only the Judiciary would be able to resolve.

The Speaker of the House’s duties as presiding officer of the House, include administering the oath of office to Members, calling the House to order, preserving order and decorum within the House chamber and galleries, recognizing members to speak on the House floor, and making rulings about House procedures.

How can the Speaker of the House be removed?

A Speaker may be removed at the will of the House, and a Speaker pro tempore appointed.  Speakers are elected by the entire House — not simply the majority party.

    Yes. Pelosi has or is about to cross the Rubicon. At which point, President Trump can declare a full state of national emergency, suspend the Congress and Courts, and enact full martial law under which we can at last make America great again and finally put an end to the Democrats and the parties they prefer over Americans.
