Ex-Navy SEAL: Government provoking vets to bring on martial law

Former Navy SEAL Ben Smith participated in the “Million Vet March” last weekend, and on Tuesday he told Fox News’ he thinks the government is trying to provoke veterans into a situation where martial law may be used.

Smith told America’s Newsroom anchor Bill Hemmer the administration is going after vets’ Second Amendment rights, and have interfered with voting rights by not getting ballots to and from the military overseas. He referred to U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, who suggested using martial law to end the government shutdown last week.

“They want to discredit the military,” Smith said. “And get us to do something stupid, so they can lock us down.”

Hemmer asked Smith why he thought money was spent to close off the open-air memorials.

“It’s become a political war game,” Smith said.

        have you noticed how fast high ranking armed forces officials are dropping here now. Reminds me of Venezuela, first thing Chavez did was to replace all army big shots.

  • fatmababy105

    I believe that is what Obama has plans for.

  • Todd Zeigler

    i agree with him

  • Estee May Scigliano

    Training in Fort Hood as we speak… They are calling it crowd control for protesters etc…. ” yea right “

    • Jean Nelson

      They think we are stupid and for the most part people are either stupid or totally uninformed

      • Chico Hinojos

        patriots are being quiet

    • Rene Thompson

      They’re doing it here in California too. My husband’s company has a contract with Fort Hunter Ligget in central California. He says they are doing some weird training out there. This place is really isolated and I bet most Californians don’t even know where this place is. Creepy.

    He’s not only after the military, which he definitely is, he is also after every citizen of this country. They’re putting folks in jail for the least thing they can find.

  • Jean Nelson

    All I have to say is make the first shot count

  • Chico Hinojos

    obama you are the most disgusting pos on earth”

    • Bill

      I will second that my friend!!!!

  • doximom

    Bingo. This man is on the right track here. For those who don’t know Obama has signed multiple Executive Orders which give him the power to seize transportation, utilities, food, etc. at his discretion. He’s just waiting for the right time folks. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

    • David J Reisner

      The shutdown was a practice run

    • Roberta Bebko

      He also signed orders to take over all communications…that’s scary because it would cut all citizens off from each other in an emergency.

      • Chico Hinojos

        one thing he has forgotten,he has betrayed israel,netantahu loves the american people,watch your back whitehouse

  • BoogieMan

    I’m old. However, am waiting patiently for the fists to begin flying. I’ll be there. Am also a veteran. 1966-1970 …. Our country is being dismantled. Do you not see it? By the socialist.

    • shropster

      You’re old? I was a recalled reservist for the Berlin “Crisis”.

  • BoogieMan

    By the way … I shall NOT sign up for Obamacare. Period.
