Launched in March by Las Vegan Stewart Rhodes, Oath Keepers bills itself as a nonpartisan group of current and retired law enforcement and military personnel who vow to fulfill their oaths to the Constitution.
More specifically, the group's members, which number in the thousands, pledge to disobey orders they deem unlawful, including directives to disarm the American people and to blockade American cities. By refusing the latter order, the Oath Keepers hope to prevent cities from becoming "giant concentration camps," a scenario the 44-year-old Rhodes says he can envision happening in the coming years.

Although seemingly something patriotic and dictatorship-preventive, the problem lies in this sentence:
That THEY deem unlawful.....
As we've learned from the whole definition of "natural born citizen" and the neverending debate that still rages on, one person, or groups', definition of said laws is often open to interpretation.
Could this in fact be the group that Obama/Pelosi were referring to when warning about returning veterans and ex-military personnel banding together?
As of right now, I give the group two thumbs up for at least remembering we have a constitution in this country.
What they do with their new power has yet to be seen.
Definitely worth keeping an eye on.
PS - I have my fingers crossed that this doesn't turn into yet another fanatical cult simply looking for blood.
