    The Pentagon Wants Authority to Post Almost 400,000 Military Personnel in U.S.

Full Article Link – The Pentagon has approached Congress to grant the Secretary of Defense the authority to post almost 400,000 military personnel throughout the United States in times of emergency or a major disaster.

This request has already occasioned a dispute with the nation’s governors. And it raises the prospect of U.S. military personnel patrolling the streets of the United States, in conflict with the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878.

In June, the U.S. Northern Command distributed a “Congressional Fact Sheet” entitled “Legislative Proposal for Activation of Federal Reserve Forces for Disasters.” That proposal would amend current law, thereby “authorizing the Secretary of Defense to order any unit or member of the Army Reserve, Air Force Reserve, Navy Reserve, and the Marine Corps Reserve, to active duty for a major disaster or emergency.”

The governors were not happy about this proposal, since they want to maintain control of their own National Guard forces, as well as military personnel acting in a domestic capacity in their states. 

But NorthCom’s Congressional fact sheet refers not just to a “major disaster” but also to “emergencies.” And it says, “Those terms are defined in section 5122 of title 42, U.S. Code.”

That section gives the President the sole discretion to designate an event as an “emergency” or a “major disaster.” Both are “in the determination of the President” alone. 

But the definition of “emergency” is vague: “Emergency means any occasion or instance for which, in the determination of the President, Federal assistance is needed to supplement State and local efforts and capabilities to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety, or to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in any part of the United States.”

The ACLU is alarmed by the proposed legislation. Mike German, the ACLU’s national security policy counsel, expressed amazement “that the military would propose such a broad set of authorities and potentially undermine a 100-year-old prohibition against the military in domestic law enforcement with no public debate and seemingly little understanding of the threat to democracy.”

There will be no national debate on this issue because the totalitarians running the country really don’t care what the people think and the politicians prefer to take the Sargent Schultz approach – "I know nothing" while padding their pockets.  Beginning in 2001, our rights were methodically removed under the guise of national security.  We were in a vague war against "terrorism" with no clear objectives or end point.

Now, we are losing our freedoms under the guise of "pandemics" and "national emergencies."  The President wants sole power to issue up the troops under any circumstances that he alone deems an "emergency."  You may remember that during the October ’08 bail-out;
Rep. Brad Sherman reported that Congress "was threatened with Martial Law" if the bill wasn’t quickly passed .

Later, Paul Joseph Watson wrote that Senator James Inhofe revealed that Henry Paulson was behind the threats of martial law and a new great depression prior to the passage of the bailout bill, having made such warnings during a conference call on September 19th, around two weeks before the legislation was eventually approved by both the Senate and Congress.

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson was formerly Chief Executive of Goldman Sachs; which along with Morgan Stanley, benefited the most from the $700 Billion.  Why did the corporate media ignore this colossal conflict of interest?  Instead of recusing himself, Paulson bullied congress. 

Henry Paulson is a member of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) and has participated in the more powerful Bilderberg Group and not coincidently, the corporate media controllers belong to the same groups.  Goldman Sachs is also one of the owners of the "all powerful" New York Federal Reserve Branch. 

Will this president, or his treasury secretary, threaten and bully congress like Paulson did in 2008?

Do we want Obama, an imperial president, to unilaterally control 400,000 military troops anywhere he wants, within the U.S.?

Back in 2008, Naomi Wolf interviewed Vietnam veteran, retired U.S. Air Force Colonel and patriot David Antoon to discuss the possibility that Bush could deploy the "First Brigade of the Third Infantry Division, three to four thousand soldiers, had been deployed in the United States as of October 1.  Their stated mission is the form of crowd control they practiced in Iraq, subduing "unruly individuals," and the management of a national emergency. for clarification.  David Anton said "If the President directed the First Brigade to arrest Congress, what could stop him?" "Nothing. Their only recourse is to cut off funding. The Congress would be at the mercy of military leaders to go to them and ask them not to obey illegal orders." "But these orders are now legal?’" "Correct."

How can we be sure that the 400,000 military force would be comprised of only Americans?

The article claims that "military personnel" would be used, but it does not say anything about where the 400,000 troops might come from.  We have a number of agreements with the U.N. and allies (NATO for example) to help form "international" armies as needed by emergency or defense.  And, FEMA has unprecedented power upon an "emergency."  For example, they may use foreign troops as needed

I think the reason why the ruling banking cartel wants foreign soldiers is that they are afraid that Americans will refuse to fire on and arrest their families and fellow citizens.

It has become painfully obvious that our government has been usurped by the international banking cartel.  We have seen their ruthlessness in destroying national economies like Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Japan, et AL.  And we have seen their cruelty in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Over 1 million Iraqis have been killed under the false pretense of having WMDs. 

Let me remind you that this scam is nothing new, it has been going on for centuries.  For example, Napoleon offers us sound advice from the early 1800’s "The Hand that gives will always be over the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; and financiers are without patriotism and without decency: their sold object is gain."

There is absolutely no logic or national equity to support our private central bank (federal reserve) system.  It is designed to strip all power and wealth from the people in establishing a financial royalty and one world government for generations to come.

Excellent post Larry!!!!  We will one day be forced to make some tough decisions.  Let’s hope it’s on OUR terms and not the gov’ts.  Until there is a full awakening by the American people we are in for a world of hurt.  It CAN happen!!!! 

Keep it coming larry.  Maybe the sheeple will become wolves.

 Larry,

Thanks for the post.  We’ve been reading quips about this, here and there, but this article brings it all clearly home.  Like Jon (Investorzz) I am trying to spread the word as best I can too, but unfortunately most folks with whom I talk think I’m just a conspiracy nut.  (Although I never was one before a couple of years ago.)

Wow, this thing is getting more serious every day.  I mentioned on another thread today that I had just read the book "Seeds of Destruction" and now have it confirmed for me that the financial manipulators are also the food manipulators.  Yep.  One and the same.  Very frightening !

    Re: The Pentagon Wants Authority to Post Almost 400,000 …

It is too bad that the person who "flagged" my post didn’t have the guts to challenge it.  The reason why we are being "railroaded" by a small group of international elites is that Americans are content to stay in their comfortable denial – let’s pretend that it just isn’t happening.  

To be fair, it is understandable that many live in a false reality because it has been carefully crafted by propagandizing our education system, the corporate media and a "cleansing" of our actual history.  Their deceptions are popping like the bubbles in our economy – people are waking up to the fact that our history has really been a struggle between our republic and the international banking cartel.  It is a struggle between sovereignty and enslavement, between prosperity and perpetual debt.  Our government is moving fast from being "by the people and for the people" to a government run by the international banking cartel, for the cartel.

The fact remains that like it or not, my post is important news that has significance to this forum.  If someone wants to challenge my analysis, that’s fine.  But please have the courtesy to explain your position rather than simply flagging my post.   

My post was based on news and my points were all true:

  • Salon.com reports that the Pentagon, governors face off over military reserve; Aug 13th, 2009 | WASHINGTON — The Pentagon is upsetting the nation’s governors by pushing for authority to call up military reservists for natural disasters — and to control how the troops would be used in any state.  "Control" is the key word.  Largely considered a wartime resource, the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine reserves can be tapped by the president for military deployments overseas and for national emergencies such as terrorist attacks. But the law is largely silent when mother nature is involved.
  • "The Hill" reports that Governors oppose DoD emergency powers; A bipartisan pair of governors is opposing a new Defense Department proposal to handle natural and terrorism-related disasters, contending that a murky chain of command could lead to more problems than solutions.  Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas (R), chairman of the National Governors Association, and Vice Chairman Gov. Joe Manchin (D) of West Virginia penned a letter opposing the Pentagon proposal, which they said would hinder a state’s effort to respond to a disaster.
  • Here is a copy of the letter sent by the NGA (National Governors Association)
  • The CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) is real, the headquarters is shown below in New York city and they have opened another headquarters in Washington, D.C.  The have a website, phone number, e-mail, directors and an agenda.  It is no secret that they exist, the secret is why they exist.
  • Hank Paulson has been a member of the CFR since his early days at Goldman Sachs. Goldman Sachs was one of the founding members of the CFR.  Some of the CFR corporate members received the lion’s share of the bail-out including the  Bank of New York Mellon Corporation, CITI Bank, Deutsche Bank AG, JPMorgan Chase & Co and Morgan Guaranty.
  • According to Wikipedia, "is an unofficial, annual, invitation-only conference of around 130 guests, most of whom are persons of influence in the fields of politics, business, and banking.  The group meets annually at luxury hotels or resorts throughout the world — normally in Europe, and once every four years in the United States or Canada. The 2009 Bilderberg meeting took place from 14-16 May in Athens, Greece."  The group is unofficial because their meetings are off limits to all news media and snoopy citizens.
  • Henry Paulson attended the 2008 Bilderberg meeting.

The corporate media participates and complies with the Bilderberg agenda of secrecy. David Rockefeller, Speaking at the June, 1991 Bilderberger meeting in Baden, Germany said (Rockefeller was the founding father of the CFR and Trilateral Commission):

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years."

"It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries."

Jim Tucker, "One Man’s 25-Year Battle to Shine the Light on the World Shadow Government" explains:

"In the old Soviet Union, the government controlled the media. Not a word of substance could be published without prior approval from the Bolshevik commissars. Today, in the United States, the situation is starkly similar. But most Americans don’t even know it. In the United States today, it is a select handful of super-rich families and tightly-knit financial interests —a plutocratic elite— who own the Big Media and who control the government through their ownership of that media . . . Every single one of the major media outlets is controlled by this powerful interlocking combine. ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Time, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune —even such “regional” giants as The New Orleans Times-Picayune, The Miami Herald, The San Diego Herald-Tribune . . . The list goes on and on. And these media powerhouses control dozens —actually thousands— of other daily and weekly newspapers, magazines, and radio and television outlets across America (and around the globe). Plus: Did you know that every single supermarket tabloid is owned by just one, super-rich Wall Street banker?".

"To consolidate their influence, the Masters of the Media and their international corporate allies reward obedient journalists with membership in the Council on Foreign Relations or the Trilateral Commission where they rub shoulders with others in the international policy-making networks. A handful get promoted to the higher ranks of the secret Bilderberg Group. The so-called “mainstream” media is very much a “closed shop” and only those willing to do the bidding of the global power elite need apply. Tom Brokaw, Dan Rather and Peter Jennings and other puppets are just the public faces that the American people see. Behind the scenes are the shadowy owners and corporate power brokers who dictate what you will (or will not) see in your daily newspaper or on the evening news. The average American has no idea that super-rich predators with names like Rockefeller, Rothschild, Bronfman, Newhouse, Murdoch and Redstone are making vast profits and achieving immense power through their stranglehold on the American media (and, increasingly, on media around the globe)".

This is nothing new, Teddy Roosevelt warned us many years ago:

"These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of newspapers and the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of public office officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government". 

According to Bilderberg researcher Daniel Estulin:

"The annual secret meeting of the Bilderberg group determines many of the headlines and news developments you will read about in the coming months. But the Establishment media completely black it out. With the exception of half-a-dozen high ranking members of the press who are sworn to secrecy, few have ever heard of the exclusive and secretive group called The Bilderbergers".

"Bilderberg meetings are never mentioned in the media, since the mainstream press is fully owned by the Bilderbergers".

In a democratic republic, the citizens are responsible to stay informed and to be vigilant in order to protect our freedoms.  In my opinion it is irresponsible to discount what I have said without offering some rebuttal or contrary facts.  Citizen censorship (political correctness, word taboos like "Bilderbergs" and "Trilaterals") is anti-American as it goes against our constitution and the spirit that is the essence of a free society.

Larry, I fully agree.  Whomever flagged should consider that his opinion is not more important than anyone elses on this forum.  If they had a problem with the content then they should have discussed it via the forum.  Not hit and run.

+1!!!

We’re doomed if people won’t open their eyes and stop immediately saying "yeah right" when issues occur.

On another note, why is this story CT when CM himself brought up the National Guard training in Maine concerning the Swine Flu?  What’s the difference?  Maybe admin. can clarify?

    Re: The Pentagon Wants Authority to Post Almost 400,000 …

 Larry,

Your post is excellent, and you definitely have your facts right.  The N.Y CFR – David and Nelson Rockefeller and a few others in the "rich men’s club" decided that a shift in U.S. global policy was necessary and formed what was originally called New York Council on Foreign Relations.  By the 1970’s, the Rockefeller brothers (Nelson, David, Laurance, John and Winthrop) dominated "think tanks", academia, government and private business as no other family in U.S. history had been able to do – including banking, the FED and who knows what else.  Their power center was the exclusive organization they created after WW1, the N.Y.C.F.R.   BTW, they hand picked Henry Kissinger from Harvard as their protege’ in the 1950’s to work for their new "foundation."

In 1973, the Rockefellers expanded their reach with a group of their hand-picked friends from N. America, Europe and Japan by creating a powerful new global policy circle – The Trilateral Commission. It included an obscure peanut farmer from Georgia named James Earl (Jimmy) Carter,  along with other such notables as Paul Volcker, Zbigniew Brzeznski,(the first Exec. Dir. of The Trilateral Commission),  George H.W. Bush and a Wall Street investment banker named Alan Greenspan – no small time operation  This group laid the framework for what G.H.W.B. called "the new world order" and later took on the term "globalization."  And "the beat goes on" – now to include many government favors to Monsanto and others, that are resulting in complete control of all major parcels of arable land, and the world food production.  Now we have the banking cartel and the food cartel together, as one.  They now "own" the government, banking interests, food production, most arable land, and most of the money in the world.  Exactly how many corporations they have heavy influence over cannot even be determined.

Is there any way to stop something this big, rich and powerful?  Then, is it pretty clear where we’re headed?
