Pentagon Unilaterally Grants Itself Authority Over ‘Civil Disturbances’

Discussion in 'General Firearms Discussion' started by dogshawred, May 15, 2013.

  1. Something I received today from a local group and felt the need to share with you all.

    The lines blurred even further Monday as a new dynamic was introduced to the militarization of domestic law enforcement. By making a few subtle changes to a regulation in the U.S. Code titled “Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies†the military has quietly granted itself the ability to police the streets without obtaining prior local or state consent, upending a precedent that has been in place for more than two centuries.
    The most objectionable aspect of the regulatory change is the inclusion of vague language that permits military intervention in the event of “civil disturbances.†According to the rule:
    "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."

    I could not find any congressional authority supporting this move listed in this posting by LongIslandPress which could lead someone to believe that this just a procedural change being used to ramp up already on edge emotions regard our ineffective administration. So if anyone has seen or heard anything that they can add, please bring it on, thanks.

    This is just another effort by the govt. to keep the American people down, make sure they can't up-rise or question Obama on these impeachable matters he's gotten himself into lately. We're seeing now what we all predicted 4 1/2 years ago, the anti-Christ:evil: is about to send our country (+ possibly the world) into a state of anarchy, that hasn't been seen for years.
    Warm-up your boy-toys and prepare your self to use them. :flag: :flag:
