Martial Law Alert: Obama Confiscates All Apache Attack Helicopters From The Governors Of All 50 States

(Credit the Dailysheeple) As if the Obama administration’s purchase of more than 2 billion rounds of ammunition, and nearly 3,000 urban tanks, along with their unprecedented (and highly illegal) domestic spyingprogram was not enough to convince you that the federal government is about to suspend the Constitution once and for all, the man who once vowed to run “the most transparent administration in history” has just rather inexplicably, ordered the U.S. Army to seize every Apache attack helicopter currently in use by the National Guard.

In all, the Defense Department will confiscate 192 Apaches from National Guard units around the country and give them to the active duty Army.

In exchange for the heavily armed and highly maneuverable choppers, Guard units will receive 111 UH-60 Blackhawk transport helicopters from the Army, Defense One reports.

Last week, U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee, claiming that the measure will save taxpayers $12 billion, over the next three years.

Of course, when one considers that this ‘cost saving’ move comes from an administration which regularly runs trillion-dollar deficits and, to date, has proposed no less than 442 tax increases since taking office in January 2009, the idea of saving money for the American taxpayer is a bit hard to swallow.

So, what could be another, more reasonable explanation?

The Apache, which began service in 1986, is armed with a 30 mm M230E1 Chain Gun (with 1,200 rounds), Hellfire anti-tank missiles, and 70 general-purpose 70 mm rockets. In short, it is capable of fending-off any enemy, foreign or domestic.

Obviously, these helicopters could pose a substantial obstacle to say, a tyrant drunk on his own power, with an army at his disposal.With the recent, attempted seizure of the Bundy family ranch in Nevada by more than 200 armed federal officers, including many snipers, we know that the Obama administration is not afraid to use force against the American people.

Furthermore, considering the unprovoked attacks and murders of U.S. citizens on their own property by federal agents, such as the Ruby Ridge and Waco massacres, we also know that the federal government has no problem suspending due process and using lethal force on its own citizens. Couple that with the as yet, unexplained, massive arms buildup by the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Defense Authorization Act which allows the feds to arrest and detain any U.S. citizen indefinitely without charges, and even the most establishment-minded American should be able to see what is coming.

There are a few governors around the country who would not stand for martial-law being arbitrarily declared by this or any president, but without any teeth (i.e. Apache attack helicopters) what could they use to stop Obama’s tyranny? http://www.thedailysheeple.com/martial-law-alert-obama-confi... http://www.defenseone.com/politics/2014/04/army-national-gua...

Keep An Eye On Those Apaches

...so we're not too surprised if they end up in the hands of the BLM, US Postal Service, IRS, Border Patrol, Dept of Fish & Wildlife, and the other goon squads out there.

It was at ten when I up-voted, now it's at 9... wtf?

Anyway, thanks for posting, this was making the rounds a few days ago, glad someone posted it.

They know when SHTF that many local Army & Air National Guards' men and women will side with the people. And if not, the bases will be targeted and over run, and military gear (which is the people's to begin with) used against the occupied government.

Smart move by traitorous enemy Obama. A clear telegraph of his agenda however, like we didn't already know.

I would have to think alot of the regular military units will side with the public.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Yep...

...so better to make sure and take their apache attack choppers away...

I said regular military

I said regular military units, not national guard. Therefore they would still have the helicopters.

National Guard does not equal State guards.

National Guard is federal in nature. They are essentially moving their own equipment and redeploying them. If he ordered them from state guards, then it would be a cause for alarm.

Not the point...

Yes, the Army & Air NG are not the state guard, nor do they constitute the "militia". They are employed as part of the standing army's reserve forces. Congress has failed in it's constitutional obligations to provide funding for the citizens' militias, which are "necessary to the security of a Free state".

That said, what is scary, and what is so telling about this latest move against the American people by this administration is that the vast majority of Army & Air NG forces are working, training and living locally, often in the very towns they grew up in. They would not fire on their own people, only help restore peace. Peace is not the goal of the Obama administration. Death is.

These choppers could, and would easily be deployed against the infiltrated rogue government enemies of the America people.

Not to mention local NG bases could and would, if siding with the captured government, be easily over run by attacking Patriot forces, and attack choppers captured, and redeployed in defense against the enemy.

This is a major move, don't kid yourself, or worse, convince others it's no big deal. This government has proven itself to be totally untrustworthy and out of control. Nothing should be put past them or slept on. Never underestimate your enemy.

Good Point! It Should Also Be Noted That...

...this is the primary reason why the National Guard has been "pressed" into service to fight Foreign Wars....

..and their deployments have been shifted around like a "shell-game" to conceal the fact that they aren't being returned stateside from these "deployments'...they simply shift them to another, extending their stay.

...and possible use for Ukrain conflict?

Its doubtful their NATO partners (in war crime) will go to Ukrain with them.

Well that leaves

7 states with Apaches.

Heh heh heh

Who is going to draw the short straw to figure out which states them are?

setting your expectations to high,can cause depression

This applies to National Guard units. I would question if this

applied to State Guard units, though there are very few of those, none of which may even have an Apache. If it does not, or cannot apply, this might make a good case for forming a State Guard and/or acquiring such arms.

Bump for

Afternoon shift This may help verify this so called conspiracy. From ABC NEWS (TUPELO) National Guard to move Apache helicopters to Army http://www.wtva.com/news/local/story/National-Guard-to-move-... TUPELO, Miss (WTVA) __ In a surprising move, the head of the U-S National Guard Bureau has given his blessing to the
U-S- Army’s plan to move all of the guard’s Apache attack helicopters into the active force.

In return, the Guard will receive several hundred Black Hawk and Lakota multi-use helicopters.

General Frank Grass' decision comes as a surprise since his statements in April that he did not agree with the proposal to take the Apaches out of the Guard.

The plan calls for the Army to retire its fleet of Kiowa Warrior Scout helicopters and replace them with the Guard’s Apaches.

The Army's Chief of Staff emphasizes that the aviation plan is necessray given the recent budget cuts to the military.

The Apache is flown by the 104-th Cavalry based in Tupelo. .
