Defense Department Seeks Legal Authority to Deploy Reservists onto American Streets

Thanks to Posse Comitatis, the US military are forbidden from responding on the streets of America whenever the whim is announced.

The Posse Comitatus Act, Section 1385, states that only under “circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress” can the military presence on American streets is allowed.

Yet, if the Defense Department has their way, a new authorization act will give them the power to order the armed forces to be used against the American public.

Air Force reservists are slated to be the new response team for domestic disturbances. Disseminated from Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) and other reserve agencies, these men and women could be called to be first response to natural disasters within the US. The legislation would extend mobilizations for indeterminate periods of time.

The AFRC affirms that reservists are traditionally not used in “homeland disaster response”. The governors of individual states can request the National Guard’s assistance during a natural disaster when local law enforcement becomes overwhelmed.

Our reservists have been asked and often volunteer to assist after disasters hit the homeland,” said Lt. Gen. Charles E. Stenner Jr., chief of Air Force Reserve and AFRC commander. “Mobilizing needed reservists will help sustain their support for longer periods and make operations more efficient. We mobilize reservists to handle contingencies overseas, so it makes sense that we do that to take care of our own country.”

More Govt Jobs

Look at what China is doing to free market revolutionaries.. creating thousands of jobs being watchers over revolutionaries.. our future, watching dissidents?

While China has long been a police state, controls on these non-offenders mark a new expansion of police resources at a time the authoritarian leadership is consumed with keeping its hold over a fast-changing society. Co-workers, neighbors, government office workers, unemployed young toughs and gang members are being used to monitor perceived troublemakers, according to rights groups and people under surveillance.

And Now Our "Leader"..

Mao Tse Obama has accomplished what he boasted of getting done.
And he declared it quite some time ago..
...with military vets in camo-shirts and baseballcaps applauding in the background.

"We've got to have a civilian national security force,
that's just as powerful..just as strong,..just as well-funded".

Air Force attempted defunding Air Natl. Guard

On CSPAN just this week I saw McCain and his buddy saying the Air Force did not request funding for the Air Natl. Guard in their budget, but they were giving them the money to finance it anyway.

Hopefully the Air Force saw this coming and are trying to block the disgusting treason.

Airforce?

I am probably going to get in trouble for this but at least they picked one of the more intelligent branches. This may be an advantage if SHTF.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

So far..

all the reservists I know would be on our side, they are Ron Paul supporters!

I was thinking

they may have made a really big mistake on this one. Think about it.

I agree

These guys get to play with the good toys.
