Rick Joyner Doubles Down On Prediction That America Is Headed For Martial Law

In a “prophetic bulletin” out today, Oak Initiative president Rick Joyner again declares that martial law is coming to America. During a September 30 broadcast on his website, Joyner declared that “our only hope is a military takeover, martial law and that the crucial, most crucial element of that is who the marshal is going to be.” Referring to that prediction, Joyner writes today:

What I did say, and am saying, is that democracy in America is failing, and we are headed for martial law.

I make no apologies for this statement, and I will stand by it. (emphasis in original)

There is nothing in this bulletin about a military takeover but his words from Monday have generated significant reaction within and outside the church. Charisma seemed supportive in their reporting, while Chris Rodda warned that like-minded military members and officers might be inclined to heed Joyner’s words about a military takeover.

    “As Joyner sees it, no election is going to fix America’s problems because the system is broken. He believes our only hope is a military takeover—martial law.”

    Again, if there is no other option, than how can you NOT advocate for it?

    “Again, if there is no other option, than how can you NOT advocate for it?”

    Because it is WRONG to do. Would you advocate murdering innocent people because there was “no other option”?

    Ken, I believe your missing my point.

    I’m suggesting that Joyner’s statement that he is not advocating for martial law is duplicitous at best.

    IF he truly believes that democracy has failed, and…

    IF he truly believes that the ONLY way to restore it is through martial law, then…

    How can he NOT advocate for it?

    You don’t have to convince me its wrong.

    “I believe there are noble leaders in our military that love the republic and love everything we stand for—and they could seize the government,” he said. “I am not advocating this. I am just telling you what could happen. They could seize it and help restore the foundations, help restore the Constitution.”

    If this was being presented to any other audience, it could be considered a threat.

    “I’m not stating it should happen but rest assure it ‘could’”.

    Moreover, this statement makes little sense for someone who is ‘not advocating’ for martial law. The only explanation for this convoluted statement is that he is trying to give himself an out if it blows up in his face.

    “I believe there are noble leaders in our military that love the republic and love everything we stand for—and they could seize the government,” – a positive statement that ‘good leaders’ could do a violent act and accomplish a good thing

    “I am not advocating this.” -a negative statement that suggests such an act would be wrong but not followed with an alternative action

    “They could seize it and help restore the foundations, help restore the Constitution.” -Second positive statement that a violent act would accomplish a desired thing.

    This is not unlike a child afraid to ask a host for a snack he sees.

    “It would be nice if you gave me one of those cookies. I’m not asking you to give me one or saying that you should. But you COULD be nice and give me one.”

    If America wasn’t working it was in the Bush years. Two endless wars – one of which was a PNAC enterprise. These same wars created massive amounts of debt. Deregulation and selective tax reform led to the meltdown of our equity and financial markets. The tax system has created enormous income inequality.

    From where I sit, Obama cleaned up as much of the mess as he could given GOP obstinance and their desire to discredit the president – even at the expense of the country. The thing that would most effect well-being would be a massive tax overhaul, a return to the ITC and elimination of artificial capital gains.

    It is the mystical incantations that convert ordinary income into capital gains that have ruined our economy and created much of the economic disparity. It’s the prime reason that we don’t make stuff anymore.

    What Joyner wants is to put the American mullahs in charge. Joyner thinks that people like Boykin (who I think has borderline personality disorder) should be running the USA.

    Well done, EWT. This is what you have made. Lie down with dogs, wake up with fleas.

    I have met these ChristianJihadists on the battlefeild before. One only needs to google the 09 Harper’s article “Jesus Killed Mohammed”. I say this as solemly as possible, let them try. And when they do tell them hell follows with me.

    I have less respect for these filth then I do for Islamic Jihadists because atleast they have the honor and courage to meet you in open combat. These peices of detritus hide behind the most leathal military homosapiens have ever devised and they seek to rule the world by a Mosaic law/Califate. They operate in secret to subvert the Secular State that has afforded freedoms to all who enter our boarders. Let them try and they will meet their fates in the most brutal and exact fashion the U.S. Army thaught me and those like me. LET THEM TRY AND HELL WILL FOLLOW WITH ME!!

    I leave you with this:

    I, Jeffery Humphrey, do solemnly swear to support and defend the constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic.

    I have left the rest off cause it is the clausal statment for assumption of command. I am no longer active or reserve so I no longer have a command structure. But that first part every real American who has taken it knows what it means and knows it can never be purged from their psyche. We lived by it, we fought for it, and we will die by it. So that this nation will NEVER perish from the earth.
