U.S. Military ‘Power Grab’ Goes Into Effect

Well. we knew this was coming. Perhaps this administration already knows what is on the horizon.

Pentagon Unilaterally Grants Itself Authority Over ‘Civil Disturbances’

Quote:By Jed Morey on May 14, 2013

The manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombing suspects offered the nation a window into the stunning military-style capabilities of our local law enforcement agencies. For the past 30 years, police departments throughout the United States have benefitted from the government’s largesse in the form of military weaponry and training, incentives offered in the ongoing “War on Drugs.” For the average citizen watching events such as the intense pursuit of the Tsarnaev brothers on television, it would be difficult to discern between fully outfitted police SWAT teams and the military.

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:

Scary. “It’s no different than the emergency powers clause in the Weimar constitution [of the German Reich]. It’s a grant of emergency power to the military to rule over parts of the country at their own discretion.”

Unfortunately it's like a cancer.....it might be possible to get the main tumor out...but the cells have hit the bloodstream and there are just too many "roots" to be able to reverse it. America has Stage 4 corruption.

Even if we got rid of Obama and Biden and half of Congress and Obamacare, which has about a 2% chance of actually happening....there are so many other corruptions that it would be almost impossible to fix it all. Stuff like this article...just little small changes in law code....stuff like that won't be reversed.

Yes I'm negative today. haha. I'm kind of getting to where I feel like "going with the flow" with modern day politics, because so far fighting hasn't exactly worked.

The problem is, it is not just Obama and the Dems.

This started under Bush and the Republicans support this stuff.

I hope I am retired and living in the country before the hammer finally falls on what is left of the Constitution.

"This guy" is the Commander-in-Chief and the military could not get away with doing this without his, at the very least tacit, approval.

Our biggest problem is the progressives/globalists who have infiltrated both parties.

Agreed.

I hold Obama responsible because he is the leader of this administration. If nothing else, he is failing to lead his administration towards legal actions. A leader is responsible for his subordinates. Yes, there will always be bad apples, but when all of the apples are bad, there is a reason.

There have been SO MANY legal and ethical problems with this administration that I find it hard to believe that Obama is doing anything to weed out corruption, uphold the laws, and administer justice in the land.

Think of it like a lemon car. Sure, one part might fail and then never fail again, but when multiple parts fail in a short time one begins to blame the manufacturer for allowing it to happen. Same thing can apply to any organization.

One worm doesn't cause a million bad apples. It takes a few generations of worms without natural enemies keeping them in check to get that result.
