Obama's Civilian Army is now LAW and is Funded

Obama's Civilian Army is now LAW and is Funded:


See the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act, page 1312:

Section 203 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 204) is amended to read as follows:
(1) IN GENERAL.–here shall be in the Service a commissioned Regular Corps and a Ready Reserve Corps for service in time of national emergency.
(2) REQUIREMENT.–All commissioned officers shall be citizens of the United States and shall be appointed without regard to the civil-service laws and compensated without regard to the Classification Act 2 of 1923, as amended.
(3) APPOINTMENT.–Commissioned officers of the Ready Reserve Corps shall be appointed by the President and commissioned officers of the Regular Corps shall be appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate.
(4) ACTIVE DUTY.–Commissioned officers of the Ready Reserve Corps shall at all times be subject to call to active duty by the Surgeon General, including active duty for the purpose of training.
(5) WARRANT OFFICERS.–Warrant officers may be appointed to the Service for the purpose of providing support to the health and delivery systems maintained by the Service and any warrant officer appointed to the Service shall be considered for purposes of this Act and title 37, United States Code, to be a commissioned officer within the Commissioned Corps of the Service.
(b) ASSIMILATING RESERVE CORP OFFICERS INTO THE REGULAR CORPS.—Effective on the date of enactment of the Affordable Health Choices Act, all individuals classified as officers in the Reserve Corps under this section (as such section existed on the day before the date of enactment of such Act) and serving on active duty shall be deemed to be commissioned officers of the Regular Corps.

[Note here that those personally appointed by BO -- without advice and consent of the Senate -- automatically become a part of the Regular Corps. Ed.]

(1) PURPOSE.–The purpose of the Ready Reserve Corps is to fulfill the need to have additional Commissioned Corps personnel available on short notice (similar to the uniformed service’s reserve program) to assist regular Commissioned Corps personnel to meet both routine public health and emergency response missions.
(2) USES.–The Ready Reserve Corps shall–
(A) participate in routine training to meet the general and specific needs of the Commissioned Corps;
(B) be available and ready for involuntary calls to active duty during national emergencies and public health crises, similar to the uniformed service reserve personnel;
(C) be available for backfilling critical positions left vacant during deployment of active duty Commissioned Corps members, as well as for deployment to respond to public health emergencies, both foreign and domestic; and
(D) be available for service assignment in isolated, hardship, and medically underserved communities (as defined in section 399SS) to improve access to health services.
(d) FUNDING.—For the purpose of carrying out the duties and responsibilities of the Commissioned Corps under this section, there are authorized to be appropriated such sums as may be necessary to the Office of the Surgeon General for each of fiscal years 2010 through 2014. Funds appropriated under this subsection shall be used for recruitment and training of Commissioned Corps Officers.

How many of you, dear readers, were aware of the fact that the health care bill created another army?

I was hoping your skepticism

I was hoping your skepticism was correct, but unfortunately this seems to be very real.


Signed into law in March of 2010: http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h3590/show

Link to section 5210: http://www.opencongress.org/senate_health_care_bill?version=...

On a side note, the OpenCongress.org website seems to have had a very nice upgrade! You can mark that you support or oppose a Bill and also link to specific sections as well as post comments to specific sections.


I haven't traced it all down but a cursory digging has turned up

that this is a modification to 42 USC 204. 42 USC is the "Health and Public Welfare" title, and section 204 refers to "the Service." Odds are, this "Service" is very limited in scope and authority.

Generally, as one diggs into these things, you find out that there are many special and contextual definitions that limit the apparent plain reading scope of the section in question.

All too often, people like to take sections of bills out of the context they are written and then make claims of "police state" or other such nonsense.

Of course, their fears are not unfounded. But they fail to realize their behavior, that of ascribing a seizure of power for which there is no warrant, is tantamount to laying the groundwork for the very tyranny they fear.

We have covered this mindset here on DP before.

Do a search on "Tyranny of the Useful Idiots."

You will see that there are many so-called and well-meaning "patriots" who trip over themselves to hand tyranny over the masses to their feared masters on a silver platter.

Like I said, I haven't finished digging, but so far, this smells of similar laws in the past - very limited in scope, but worded somewhat deceptively, so that the less learned and those not 'Earnest' among us fall for the claim that government can, and is, assuming power it does not, nor cannot, possess.


One more reason to flee this country.

If you read the fine print, it says they are trained....

....To deal with unruly people, including believers.

This means Obama has his own Stasi corps -- A Civilian army made up of "OBAMA" voters who, if they recognize you as being religious or christian in *ANY* form...will demonize you!!!

The long hand of COMMUNISM has touched foot in America.
They are being taught to see ALL who support the Constitution as enemies of the state, to see Christianity as a dangerous enemy and to view other religions like Islam/Judaism as IMPURE tools of destruction.

This is not a drill....These people are deadly serious about turning the remaining United States into a communist union!

They are trained to MOCK and SCORN literally anyone, including Judges; who in ANYWAY support the Constitution or the Ten Commandments. George Orwell's nightmare is real.
