Defense Department Seeks Legal Authority to Deploy Reservists onto American Streets

 

OCCUPY CORPORATISM

Thanks to Posse Comitatis, the US military are forbidden from responding on the streets of America whenever the whim is announced.

The Posse Comitatus Act, Section 1385, states that only under “circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress” can the military presence on American streets is allowed.

Yet, if the Defense Department has their way, a new authorization act will give them the power to order the armed forces to be used against the American public.

Air Force reservists are slated to be the new response team for domestic disturbances.

Disseminated from Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) and other reserve agencies, these men and women could be called to be first response to natural disasters within the US. The legislation would extend mobilizations for indeterminate periods of time.

The AFRC affirms that reservists are traditionally not used in “homeland disaster response”. The governors of individual states can request the National Guard’s assistance during a natural disaster when local law enforcement becomes overwhelmed.

Our reservists have been asked and often volunteer to assist after disasters hit the homeland,” said Lt. Gen. Charles E. Stenner Jr., chief of Air Force Reserve and AFRC commander. “Mobilizing needed reservists will help sustain their support for longer periods and make operations more efficient. We mobilize reservists to handle contingencies overseas, so it makes sense that we do that to take care of our own country.”

Because of the specialized training that reservists are given in dealing with disasters, the US government has decided they would be perfect as a first response team.

Earlier this month, in Crookston Minnesota, there were armed US National Guardsmen that were patrolling a residential neighborhood .

These functions are called “urban operations training” where military personnel carry armed weapons with the command not to “utilize armory or pyrotechnics”.

Within the Air Force Reserve, there are other specialized units such as response personnel, supplies and equipment focused on disaster scenarios.

As recent as 2008 saw our National Guard unit in America under NORTHCOM as “domestic security”.

Stenner proclaims that this new authority will allow the armed forces to make greater contributions to Americans should there be a natural disaster. He is referring to the frustration chiefs of reservist experience because they are “unable to help their communities.”

The push for over-reaching authority allocated to the armed forces will negate local reservist’s purpose by Title 10, which gives them federal power that supersedes state authority in Title 32.

” Armed Forces chiefs claim that there were reserve-component Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines who were close at hand with the capabilities needed, but they didn’t have the authority to act,” said Army Lt. Gen. Jack C. Stultz, chief of Army Reserve. “Finally, we got the law changed. This new legislation says that now we can use Title 10 reserves.”

Without a declaration of emergency or disaster from the President, these armed forces could not act. With this new ability, they can . . . whenever and for whatever purpose they are ordered to.

The law specifies that local law enforcement is still mandated to provide initial response; yet if needed, the National Guard will become the first step requested by a state governor.

And then there is the matter of scenario that allows reservists to be deployed for a promised 120 days, which could be extended based upon request. “We just have to make sure we have the procedures and processes worked out,” Stultz remarked about the specifics that are now being worked out to avoid confusion of authority later on.

Stultz is very anxious to have this power at his fingertips. “Let’s not wait until a hurricane hits to say, ‘How do we do it?’”
These reservists are going to be the response team for any future (and assured) “overseas contingencies”.

As operations in the Middle East are winding down, Stultz can now refocus his attention on militarizing America.

Letter from America: The ‘Amen Corner’ in the Capitol Hill

From the Asian Tribune

May 27, 2012

With the U.S. presidential election only five months away, the Capitol Hill is behaving more and more like a cheer-leading ‘Amen Corner’ for the rogue state of Israel these days than a body of wise law-makers that care about what is best for the USA and her people.

 Two weeks ago, the House of Representatives passed a resolution H. Res.568 that was designed to tie the president’s hands on Iran policy. The vote was 401 in favor with only 11 opposing.

Amongst the brave ones that voted against this Resolution were: Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich. Among the cowards that decided to remain abstain were Keith Ellison and John Conyers.

The resolution was the usual boilerplate denouncing the Islamic Republic of Iran as a “state sponsor of terrorism” that is on the road to nuclear weapons capability, and “urges the President to reaffirm the unacceptability of an Iran with nuclear-weapons capability and opposition to any policy that would rely on containment as an option in response to the Iranian nuclear threat.”

This was like telling the president that any U.S. response to that “threat” other than war was unacceptable.

Just reflect on the audacity of the resolution. Everyone knows that America cannot afford another war now. And these senators at the Capitol Hill ought to know better than ordinary Joe, Dick or Harry.

Thus, why this madness to rush to another war, and at whose behest?

The answer is: AIPAC.

The all-powerful pro-Israeli Jewish lobby has been trying hard to push the USA to start a war with Iran since the fall of the Shah.

It was behind the war against Iraq. And now the target has shifted to Iran but its very methodology – the scaremongering tactics mixed with lies and deceptions – has remained virtually the same.

Through its mouthpieces in the Capitol Hill (and there are too many of these parrots), back in 2002, just months before invasion of Iraq, we were told, “Saddam Hussein is not far from developing and acquiring the means to strike the United States, our friends and our allies with weapons of mass destruction. Thus, if we do not act now, when?” (Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Oct. 9, 2002)

And as we know, Ileana, like her many pro-Israeli hawks, was wrong.

{ Xaniel’s note : And the only reason that they ‘ were wrong ‘ is because they just flat lied about it! }~Xaniel777

Now she would like us to believe that “The Iranian regime continues to pose an immediate and growing threat to the United States, to our allies, and to the Iranian people. We are running out of time to stop the nightmare of a nuclear weapons-capable Iran from becoming a reality…We must meet our responsibility to the American people and protect the security of our Nation, our allies, and the world from this threat of a nuclear capable Iran.” (May 15, 2012)

Why should America believe her kind?

Ten years ago, Howard Berman (D-CA), another puppet and unabashed supporter of the rogue state of Israel, said, “But under today’s circumstances, the best way to give peace a chance and to save the most lives, American and Iraqi, is for America to stand united and for Congress to authorize the President to use force if Saddam does not give up his weapons of mass destruction. Confront Saddam now, or pay a much heavier price later.”

And he misled the country on Iraqi-WMDs.

On May 15, 2012 Berman said, “What better time for this body to send an unambiguous message that Iran must never be allowed to achieve a nuclear weapons capability and that its nuclear weapons program must end once and for all?”

The list of these AIPAC-parrots for the state of Israel is too long to waste our time realigning about what they said. (An interested reader may like to browse the collections of Nima Shirazi.)

They can lie without feeling ashamed. That is how bad and evil they are.

So, I was not too shocked to see that the pro-war Resolution passed in the House with a vote of 401 in favor with only 11 opposing. Amongst the brave ones that voted against this Resolution were: Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich. Among the nine cowards that decided to abstain were Keith Ellison and John Conyers.

As Nima noted, it is better to be a coward than to be in the pocket of the AIPAC.

Well, that sums it up well for all of us as to where the Capitol Hill has descended down to in the moral compass. One can only pity these spineless and warmongering members of the ‘Amen Corner.’

A sad day in deed for all those who voted them into the Capitol Hill!

ISRAEL’S SILENT OFFER TO SILENCE FAMILIES OF MAVI MARMARA VICTIMS

 

From DesertPeace

May 29, 2012

Admission of guilt or whitewash?

According to sources in the Turkish foreign ministry who spoke to the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz, Israel had not presented the offer to them directly. The source said that the principle of damages was accepted by Turkey but the obstacle was Israel’s admission of guilt which Turkey insists upon.

“Israel is opposed to declaring publicly that it apologises and Turkey is not prepared to accept a wording of regret that does not include taking responsibility, that is required in an expression of apology,” the sources said.

Mark Regev, the spokesman for Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, declined to comment.

The following report appeared in the Guardian a few days ago as well as THIS IBA News Bulletin which appeared on their Internet site.

Israel offers compensation to Mavi Marmara flotilla raid victims

£4m paid to Jewish foundation in Turkey, which will distribute the money to the victims and their families
By Conal Urquhart and agencies

The Israeli government has offered £4m in compensation to the families of Turkish activists killed by Israeli commandos who stormed a ship taking part in an aid flotilla in May 2010, according to a lawyer representing the victims.

Ramzan Ariturk said the money would have been paid to a Jewish foundation in Turkey for distribution and would be followed by a statement of “regret” for the raid by the Israeli government on the Mavi Marmara, which was bound for the Gaza Strip.

The lawyer, one of several representing 465 victims and relatives of the dead and injured on board the Mavi Marmara, said that the Israeli government had made a proposal to him through an intermediary foreign ambassador in Ankara.

Turkey cooled diplomatic relations with Israel after nine of its citizens were shot dead by Israeli commandos who landed on the Mavi Marmara to prevent its passage to Gaza.

Protesters on the ship repelled the first wave of lightly armed commandos, but then the Israeli soldiers used lethal force against the unarmed passengers to end their resistance.

Ariturk said he told the ambassador a month ago that he did not think the offer was appropriate or moral. “I also discussed the issue with the victims and their friends and they also stated that they could not accept this,” he said.

He declined to disclose the nationality of the intermediary or the name of the Jewish organisation that would distribute the compensation but said the Turkish foreign ministry agreed with his decision, saying Israel should have contacted it directly.

According to sources in the Turkish foreign ministry who spoke to the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz, Israel had not presented the offer to them directly. The source said that the principle of damages was accepted by Turkey but the obstacle was Israel’s admission of guilt which Turkey insists upon.

“Israel is opposed to declaring publicly that it apologizes and Turkey is not prepared to accept a wording of regret that does not include taking responsibility, that is required in an expression of apology,” the sources said.

Mark Regev, the spokesman for Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, declined to comment.

On Wednesday an Istanbul prosecutor submitted an indictment seeking life sentences for four former Israeli military commanders in connection with the raid, including the chief of general staff at the time.

The United Nations report on the raid last September concluded that Israel had used unreasonable force but that its blockade of Gaza was legal.

Bilderberg 2012: May 31-June 3, Chantilly, VA; shaping the 1%’s crimes, lies

The Bilderberg Group (and here) is an annual meeting among current and future leaders in government, money, and media. Their members are secretive, but we can see their chosen policies:

  1. The wars are Orwellian unlawful because war lawmakes armed attack illegal unless first attacked by another nation’s government. 

  2. Using debt as a so-called money supply is economic criminal fraud because it creates ever-increasing aggregate debt that can never be repaid (because that’s what we use for money). This is just one cartel of many that shift trillions of the 99%’s wealth to the 1%.

  3. The crimes and lies are only possible through corporate media’s complicity.

The above policies kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions. As such, the 99% have an interest to occupy Bilderberg and expose its members as the architects of these criminal policies. Click here for Infowars’ live coverage of the Bilderberg conference.

The endgame is the surrender or arrests of “emperor has no clothes” obvious War Criminals and debt-slave drivers.

Fight The New World Order with Global Non Compliance (Full Version)

 

Published on May 2, 2012 by 

Understand your enemy, and understand the weapons they use. Then use those same weapons against them.

The money system is the head of the snake.

Cut the head off the snake and the rest of it will whither and die.

There need be No violence, no guns, no banners, no slogans, no group think, just a united act of global non compliance.

Remember that it is much easier to fight for principles than to live up to them and it takes a far braver man to stand up for what is right and spit in the face of authority than it does to blindly follow orders due to fear of the consequences.

Understand that we are all one and the key to real change and unity in this world lies with love.

It is time for the people of the world to stop and realise that the divisions that supposedly exist amongst us are an illusion.

There IS NO division and its time for everyone to understand the truth of this.

It is through the constantly promoted illusion of division that the system is able to function but in order for it to do so, it needs public compliance.

Stop complying with it and you will shut it down.

Its time for us all to collectively stand together and address the root cause of the problems.

Everyone.
