FYI,

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/may/28/inside-the-ring-directive-outlines-obamas-policy-t/


Directive No. 3025.18, "Defense Support of Civil Authorities," was issued Dec. 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders "are provided emergency authority under this directive."



"Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances unless specifically authorized by the president in accordance with applicable law or permitted under emergency authority," the directive states.



"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" under two conditions.



The conditions include military support needed "to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order." A second use is when federal, state and local authorities "are unable or decline to provide adequate protection for federal property or federal governmental functions

    The Patriot act and the creation of Homeland Security meant the end to our country and it's freedoms as we used to know them.

    Yeah we should go back to a civil flag and a loose confederation instead of the coming NWO and trade blocks for the elite to control all commerce and profits! Fat chance it will happen because they want to control every thing and bleed the masses for profits.

    If I remember correctly in the old days there was a LAW that specifically prohibited this.

    But that was done under the antiquated method of a bill passing the Senate and House and then signed by a President.

    Directive No. 3025.18, "Defense Support of Civil Authorities," was issued Dec. 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders "are provided emergency authority under this directive."

    This article is dated May 28, 2014. We do have the most transparent administration in history. If you just look you can see right through it.

    I just hope that our military leaders remember the Oath to our Constitution and side with the good guys. I am pretty sure special forces will, as the 2 I am friends with have no love for our current illegal government & our little dictator.
