Nothing! Absolutely nothing surprises me anymore about the Obama Administration or the lawless attitude of politicians...from BOTH sides of the proverbial aisle. I only find myself increasingly frustrated that more Americans have no clue what is going on. People actually think that Ben Ghazi is some dude for heaven's sake. Truly disgusting and unacceptable. Forget voter ID...people should have to take a current events aptitude test and PASS IT before being allowed to vote. The uninformed have chosen the incompetent. The blind being lead by the stupid.
Now a directive from the white house has been released that shows the President or high ranking military officials have the right to use military force against us during times of civil unrest. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the situation at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada was considered by this administration as civil unrest. The Washington Post reported on this yesterday. This directive is proof of what I myself, along with many others have been saying for a long time. Obama wants a police state. Expect Martial Law. During a time of martial law, all elections are suspended. If elections are suspended, he stays in office and we have a dictator. Here is an excerpt from the article at WAPO:
The troubling aspect of the directive outlines presidential authority for the use of military arms and forces, including unarmed drones, in operations against domestic unrest.
“This appears to be the latest step in the administration’s decision to use force within the United States against its citizens,” said a defense official opposed to the directive.
Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” was issued Dec. 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.”
“Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances unless specifically authorized by the president in accordance with applicable law or permitted under emergency authority,” the directive states.
“In these circumstances, those federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the president is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances” under two conditions.
The conditions include military support needed “to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order.” A second use is when federal, state and local authorities “are unable or decline to provide adequate protection for federal property or federal governmental functions.”
“Federal action, including the use of federal military forces, is authorized when necessary to protect the federal property or functions,” the directive states.
Military assistance can include loans of arms, ammunition, vessels and aircraft. The directive states clearly that it is for engaging civilians during times of unrest.
The conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, received as part of an FOIA request a Department of Defense training manual which lists those who embrace "individual liberties" and wish to honor "state's rights". These types of people are labeled as extremists and members of "hate groups". If you are against Obama and this lawless government, then you are an extremist and you are targeted. Read this training manual for yourself here. Directive # 3025.18 can be found here.
I urge you to read both documents and then share them....far and wide. Share them on Facebook, on Twitter, on Pinterest.... everywhere. The harder we fight back, the less power they have over us. Beat the drum. Never stop.
