(BEFORE IT'S NEWS) -- Why did Democratic Texas Congress Woman Sheila Jackson Lee say from the floor of Congress “we have martial law” as shared in the video below? She went on to clarify that statement a small bit by mentioning that “my colleagues know what that means”. What does that mean, Sheila? Sheila’s office can be reached at 202-225-3816 for anyone looking for an answer. Back in 2008, Congressman Brad Sherman also warned about martial law coming to America. That video also below.
Advocating for the passage of a clean continuing resolution that would, at least temporarily, end the current standoff in Washington and reopen the government, Lee said there were enough members of Congress who would vote for the resolution.
“It’s something called a continuing resolution, but it’s a bill that you put on the floor that has been passed already by Republicans and Democrats in the United States Senate….that we could vote on today,” said Lee, adding, “We have martial law – what that means – and my colleagues know what it means – is that you can put a bill on in just minutes.”
The last time martial law was mentioned by a member of Congress was back in 2008 when Rep. Brad Sherman revealed how lawmakers were threatened with “martial law in America” by then Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson if they rejected the TARP bailout package.
