The National Guard is first activated by the Governor for domestic disaster relief Ie Hurricanes, floods,earthquakes, tornadoes Ect. This time is a national heath emergency so in Michigan the Governor has the Guard handing out water distributing food to the needy and seniors and delivering medical supplies to hospitals and clinics. As a recently retired MI guardsman please dont spread misinformation/rumors here we all have enough stress/concern for our fellow Americans and should look for ways we can help/encourage others now. Thanks.

In California they're making plans that if martial law is imposed, they will also call out the Screen Actors Guild, the screenwriters union, the society of camera operators, all of the musicians and rappers - basically everyone involved in the entertainment industry. Working alongside the military forces, those folks will take care of martial arts.

Canada isn't limited by the US Constitution.
Are you sure? Isn't the USA Constitution the most powerful doc in the world?

First of all, the October Crisis that happened in 1970 in Quebec was not a Quebec based civil war.
The War Measures Act, which has been invoked three times in Canada’s history—during the First and Second World Wars and most recently by Mr. Trudeau’s father, Pierre Trudeau, in 1970 was in response to the kidnapping of James Cross, a British diplomat, and the kidnapping and murder of a Quebec provincial cabinet minister Pierre Laporte, by the Front de libération du Québec (FLQ).
This War Measures Act has now been repealed and replaced in 1988, by the Emergencies Act.

The Emergencies Act differs from the War Measures Act in two important ways:
  1. A declaration of an emergency by the Cabinet must be reviewed by Parliament
  2. Any temporary laws made under the act are subject to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Thus any attempt by the government to suspend the civil rights in Canada, even in an emergency, will be subject to the "reasonable and justified" test under section 1 of the Charter.

Our Prime Minister did not say he would use this act, but it is there to be used if necessary.
Yes he did say he would use it. Here in the present :)

Virginia (rural) might be the same !;)
I have often speculated what it would take for people to get off their tv watching couches to get a serious separatist movement going in the USA. Pervasive elsewhere.

Yes. A better resource, though, for the limitations on the use of the military for law enforcement is available at:


As an aside, here's a link on Marshall Law:

MrockStar, I'm the only living relative for my 86 year old aunt who lives in a low cost HUD senior complex in Plymouth MI, I dropped off food yesterday for her and we took precautions, I put the food down and then she came and grabbed it. Will the National Guard help someone that has no car and no way to go to the store?

Depends on where you are as to the tasks assigned to NatG. Here, yes, they do food delivery to "shut ins" (but are currently moving medical supplies as our state did get a shipment from national stockpile in the past few days). I would not be surprised if they help with "welfare checks" as this goes on.

Railfanners are fueling the martial law rumours with videos like these. Is the transportation of this much military equipment by train a common sight in the United States? Is it just business as usual?

Depends on where they are headed. Maybe borders. Maybe they are the next hospitals...

I feel the average American citizen do not want Marital Law and does not understand how Marital Law will & would affect their daily movements. IMO.

We all need to be on the same side, no fussing about spelling or fanning the flames of rumors. Just taking things day by day and waiting for this pandemic to end.

DW and I have been living under marital law for 46 years now. We've managed to cope and even thrive.

I was waiting for someone else to jump on this! I know some marital lawyers, it that will help. Actually, they are non-marital lawyers.

If they were eastbound in Gainesville, GA, they are probably headed for the Port of Charleston, or if they hang a right, the Port of Savannah or even the Port of Jacksonville. Why? Part of a unit deployment judging from the mix of tracked vehicles, wheeled vehicles, tankers, generators, etc.

There are no borders to defend if you go east from Gainesville, GA.

Relax, people!

Edit: Another guess. Since the RR tracks in Gainesville, GA run SW to NE, and the train in the video is heading NE, my bet is all this stuff is going to Ft. Bragg, near Fayetteville, NC.

Don't forget the grips. And the key grips! And the gaffers, too!

I don't see it happening unless civil unrest breaks out. We do not currently have domestic wars nor are we being criminalized.

We do have reports of parking lot squabbles over TP. I could see those getting a bit worse, but it helps that bars are shut down. Sounds like cops are making the rounds and even parking outside store entrances.

Otherwise, we aren't "under lockdown" and I wish that phrase would stop being used. Here, we have a Level 1 emergency + travel advisory, essential travel only. Our non-essential businesses are still open but it's only a matter of time, and testing. I can leave my home at will. I can re-enter my home at will.

I was kinda teasing. I did not look at train direction, just thought we had closed or tightened Canadian border recently. I would not expect to need heavy artillery up there. A simple Please oughta do.

We are getting towards hurricane season in a few months, too. SE is the right direction. I hope they are on an infrastructure-related mission.

I see convoys here frequently. Stuff is always moving. Maybe those were all filled with TP rations!

And the dancers too. Just imagine a line of national guard troops advancing in formation - led by line of ballerinas en pointe!
