Pentagon, Governors Face Off Over Military Reserve

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....

link comes down to the States vs The Feds!
This is nearing a showdown.

News has been reported that the Pentagon has laid plans to deploy troops to be used as law enforcement here in The United States.

The Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security recently notified law enforcement agencies and associations, such as the National Association of Chiefs of Police, about the Obama Administration's interest in using the military during "emergencies."

Ron Paul said

"fusion centers, militarized police, surveillance cameras and a domestic military command is not enough... Even though we know that detention facilities are already in place, they now want to legalize the construction of FEMA camps on military installations using the ever popular excuse that the facilities are for the purposes of a national emergency. With the phony debt-based economy getting worse and worse by the day, the possibility of civil unrest is becoming a greater threat to the establishment. One need only look at Iceland, Greece and other nations for what might happen in the United States next."

The implications are far reaching.

This is was shot down during the Bush administration when they tried to get 2009 appropriations for it.

And it's not just for disaster; now, they want to put down "terrorists."
They're taking a second bite at the apple:

Pentagon seeking emergency powers to deploy within states

DHS knows you're a terrorist; Obama wants to know who's dissenting. Coincidence?

deny ignorance

Yes, the implications are far reaching, and this I just read...I am in shock. I am not sure what they are planning on doing...but it is starting to look the TSHTF type of stuff!

You might want to take a look at this! 400,000 troops, here on the U.S. Soil?

What happened the last time people were in angst and the Fed decided it had the power to do what ever it wanted to do, and they didn't get their way?

The first thing was the Fed suspended the constitution. Yea, this isn't any good, Fear-mongering, or nothing to see move along?

I don't know S is getting crazy on edge, the governors see how people are reacting to having another bill shoved down their throats and people are fed up with it.

The writing on the wall is becoming clearer by the day.
