This troubled me as soon as I heard it on the news today. What is the real purpose of this?

Training for the homefront? How many will we lose there to Ebola?

How many will bring it home to us?

Can he legally do this under our constitutional structure?

*I know...silly question for me to ask, but call me silly*...I don't think he can do this???

Just more proof he cares more about Africa than the United States.

If he really wanted to protect us he'd stop these people from entering the country.

Well, yeah, that's the silly part of my question...since we're in a day and age where the Chief Criminal in Charge just CAN do what he wants, but technically (and literally) speaking...CAN he..i.e. IS HE ALLOWED...to do this here thingy-whacker according to our constitution???

I thought the national guard was beholding to the individual governors and that any guard deployment no matter what level of government took the individual governors proclaiming such could, in fact, happen.

Executive Order: Ordering the Selected Reserve and Certain Individual Ready Reserve Members of the Armed Forces to Active Duty



From the wiki article



"Presidential Reserve Callup Authority" (PRCA) is a provision of a public law (US Code, Title 10 (DOD), section 12304) that provides the President a means to activate, without a declaration of national emergency, not more than 200,000 members of the Selected Reserve and the Individual Ready Reserve (of whom not more than 30,000 may be members of the Individual Ready Reserve), for not more than 400 days to meet the support requirements of any operational mission. Members called under this provision may not be used for disaster relief or to suppress insurrection. This authority has particular utility when used in circumstances in which the escalatory national or international signals of partial or full mobilization would be undesirable. Forces available under this authority can provide a tailored, limited-scope, deterrent or operational response, or may be used as a precursor to any subsequent mobilization.[2]


Wiki
So no disaster relief. What are they supposed to do then?

You don't get it. He IGNORES THE LAW routinely.

Okay, so that's what I thought. He has to declare a national emergency even to operate in a limited fashion with the national guard. Otherwise, the governors deploy their national guard at a state level. And they can deploy their guard to help elsewhere, but the governors have to do it.

What is the real purpose... that's a good question: I read that one reason might be that those troops will be attempting to control petroleum fields and diamond mines.. or something to that effect..

THey will also be forced to take Ebola Virus vaccinations most likely, so they might be experimenting on them with those..
Or maybe it's an effort to remove them from US territory, to better manipulate M. Law scenarios in the u.s. Could be.
