Right-Wing False Prophet Incorrectly Claims United States Under Martial Law
Jeff Jansen, the “prophet” and founder of Global Fire Ministries International in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, appeared on the Elijah Streams YouTube channel on Tuesday and put forth a bizarre, incoherent, and rambling conspiracy theory that the United States is currently under martial law because the 2020 election was fraudulent.
It was a doozy of a claim:
So just because January 20th came and went, and President Trump – we all know the election was fraud. Everybody – heaven knows. You can’t substantiate something in the natural that’s fraudulent like this. It’s not validated or recognized in the spirit world, and I said this this morning on Charlie Ward’s show.
Jansen added that the election is not over because heaven does not recognize President Joe Biden as legitimate:
You can’t substantiate something in the natural that’s not validated or recognized in the spirit realm. And so this whole election is still going. And as a matter of fact, it’s not going, it’s just being looked at. And it’s being looked at right now – I’m not afraid to say it – we’re under military tribunals. The military is in charge of our nation right now. And there’s some people that might not like that. Well, you know, you’ll see, it’s OK.
Host Steve Shultz interrupted to suggest that Biden is too unstable to be trusted with the American nuclear arsenal:
Well can I say this – whether it’s true or not, wouldn’t it be good news if it was true, because it means that the guy who’s not all there, literally not all there – does not have his finger on the button or can’t get his finger on the button?
But Jansen said that “it has nothing to do with that.” Instead, he insisted that the Constitution mandates that the military should take over the government during a contested election (which is completely false):
The last line of defense in our Constitution, if the courts cannot legitimize, or if the courts will not recognize or look at certain things, and it comes to the House of Representatives and the House can’t handle it and it gets kicked back to the courts like we’re at right now and the courts can’t figure it out, if we get to a point where we can’t figure it out, written in our Constitution, this comes back to the letter of the law in the Constitution, it comes down to the military will take control temporarily until order is restored in our nation. And they are not Democrats or Republicans, they could care less, they don’t answer to anybody. They don’t answer to a Supreme Court. They don’t answer to a would-be elect. They don’t answer to anybody. They take control of the republic to figure out the mess, and once they figure it out, once they come to a conclusion based upon their own information, then they will restore power and order back to the people. That’s their job, and that’s the last line of defense. And quite frankly, Steve, you know that’s going to happen.
