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


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.

Just take a look at the change:


Federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances.


Am I the only one who thinks we are going deeper into the path of tyranny? Your thoughts? To me this sounds like a silent declaration of Marshall law. With the intentional vague language used they can twist it to excuse any domestic military action they choose to. Kinda like how they twist the patriot act to cover constant warrantless wiretapping of any and all digital communication.

Sounds like the beginning of a military coup! At the very least that they know something is going to happen!

that's not right, just who authorized this change, did the joint chiefs, or the president do this?
what this says to me someone thinks that they have the power to write and dictate law, without the peoples consent. although our senators and representatives don't do a very good job something along this line has to be voted on. and i'm surprised that none voiced opposition to it.

now what really has me concerned, who ever decided to do this must think that they have enough control over the servicemen/ women to pull such a thing off.

So I am wondering 'why now'? What prompted this sudden action? What do they know?

One can only hope this gets enough attention that the Supreme Court gets involved.

Then again, you have to wonder, who's side are they on...I mean really. Is it the gov or the public?

Just questions.

Well taking a look at all the scandals that are hitting the administration, makes you wonder:

Benghazi
AP wire tapping
donator scandal (breaking Friday or Monday)
Fast and Furious
Unwillingness to prosecute Wall Street because too big to jail
Campaign to label Patriots as domestic terrorists
IRS targeting Tea Party

The hits keep on coming.

you know, now that i think about it. maybe that was why they pushed so hard for drones flying over the US.
now i wonder if they will have military operators, who have experience at firing on targets piloting them.

The *ONLY* source for this story in the entire world is the one in the Long Island press. Every other source points back to that.
So we have a situation where Jed Morey appears to be the only person in the world who knows about it.

The text of the rule he linked to is still the old version from 2012.
His source, is only an anonymous "defense official who declined to be named".

I recommend everyone begin survival training and get happy with being outdoors because there's going to be those who quietly accept the coming Fourth Reich and those who violently oppose it, and you don't want to be caught in either one of those groups quite honestly.

For those who consistently seek the truth of life and love get ready to get out of dodge if SHTF, and be self sufficient.

Also, you don't need to tell me running away wont solve the problem, I know it wont. However, there is going to have to be some people who still hold the fundamentals of peace and spirituality after SHTF and the dust settles, because when the US is ruins it is those who have found refuge in themselves and their own truth, not the truth of governance and opposition, that will be the leaders of the dawning of the new age.

I greatly aspire to help prevent martial law and a Fourth Reich, and there is one way you can most definitely do it and it doesn't involve firing back at the police state - simply do not need them. If everyone stopped going to work, stopped relying on the system, and simply dropped off into the wilderness there would not be much they could do.

Fill you brain. Get ready. Just by learning how to not be dependent on the system, food at grocery outlets, shelter in civilization, etc. you are damaging the societal matrix more than you would by firing bullets at them.

Best regards.

"where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation"

when those conditions are met you will have bigger problems to worry about

but since the government is usually behind the problems and they are false flags in general...start worrying

Wanna bet? You will most likely be on public land and a lot of people have already discovered the long arm of the NWO out there in the wilderness.

I never trusted advice from Horus anyway.

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 US Code is not regulation. It's law. It takes an act of Congress to change it. The military has not quietly changed anything in the USC, and could not do so even if it wanted to. The extract of the Code linked to in the article appears to be from 1/3/2012, so it hasn't been recently changed by Congress, either. The "rule" quoted by the article does not appear anywhere in the USC chapter where it is supposedly found.

The language incorrectly attributed to Title 10 USC is found in 32 CFR 185, and its source is 76 FR 2248 (Jan 13, 2011). In other words, this guy is at least a couple years late to the party. Here it is with a little more context:

(i) Federal military commanders are provided emergency authority under this part. Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances unless specifically authorized by the President in accordance with applicable law (e.g., chapter 15 of title 10, U.S.C.) or permitted under emergency authority, as described below (See DoD Directive 3025.12 16 and DoD Directive 5525.5 17 .) In these circumstances, those Federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances because:

(1) Such activities are necessary to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order, or,

(2) When duly constituted Federal, State, or local authorities are unable or decline to provide adequate protection for Federal property or Federal governmental functions. Federal action, including the use of Federal military forces, is authorized when necessary to protect the Federal property or functions.

I'm not going to look at every edition of the CFR, but the 1997 edition has a similar authority, directing the use of military forces in domestic emergencies when "guidance cannot be obtained from higher headquarters on a timely basis." This is not new. It is the proper and customary role of the military.

What's that mean, exactly, can you elaborate? I've been thinking of working on a newer bugout plan for myself and family so this has piqued my interest.

he might mean that the park service and game wardens are more like a police force than ever before.
not just looking for poachers and people without fishing licensees.
and if i remember right, the national park service, have surveillance cameras setup in many of the parks.

Seems right. As I posted earlier, this story didnt look right to me.

So do we assume then that this Jed Morey guy got mislead by his anonymous defense official friend, ended up writing an out of date and bogus story.

And now of course internet OUTRAGE with nobody (apart from yourself) bothering to check the facts behind it.

Par for the course around here.

what utter twaddle - what the hell do people think is going to happen

would people actually want , say the 10th mountain div to just sit on base while NYC goes down the tube ??????

all this is is the framework by which legal orders can be issued to authourise the use of military assets on US soil during emergencies

anything else you read into it is your own fantasy

Changes to the “Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies manual were done by the DoD and DHS with obama’s approval. [this is available online]
In addition, the National Defense Authorization Act [breaks the 4th, 5th and 8th Amendments] signed by Obama Dec 2011. The NDAA is what gives the pResident the ‘legal authority’ to torture and/or kill you if he thinks you might, maybe, possibly be somehow connected or related to someone who might possibly be suspected of terrorism.
The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 forbids military personnel from acting as law enforcement agents on U.S. soil.
This Act is still in effect, but the government has taken steps to establish a de facto repeal to bypass the law, [section 1031 of the NDAA]. Don’t forget Bush declared a national emergency after 9/11 and it is still in effect because Obama keeps signing it every year.
Considering the muslim socialist in the WH, he does what he wants [without prosecution for some reason], and has been ignoring the law as does the unconstitutional DHS. So military drills continue in cities throughout the country.

Contact your Congressman and scream about it!!!

Good catch. Looking at the same users' (it's a blog entry for Long Island Press) past entries, he generally does opinion pieces. The US Code that he links to does not have the quoted material within it. Long Island Press is the author's website as he is the publisher for it: jedmorey.com... Doesn't really have anything to back it up and in these times where public officials in the know are more likely to stay anonymous, it makes it impossible to actually source whether something is true or not. If the change isn't present in the government hosted code itself, I find it pretty dubious but it doesn't matter. The echo chamber is away and running with it because it suits their ideologies.

Heh. I flipped the symbol upside down as kind of a "smack in the face", but okay.

Sure, don't be prepared for when SHTF. Sit around and wait for your family to get sent off to a nice fluffy lovey dovey camp or fight back against drones and tanks with your AR-15 and IEDs. Doubt you will get far.
