Obama fearing a revolution against him by the states, has moved swiftly by nationalizing nearly all National Guard Forces in multiple states; Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, Minnesota, Tennessee, Virginia, Louisiana, South Carolina to name a few. The Governors of the Great States of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia still have under their Command-and-Control the State Defense Forces to go against U.S. Federal forces should the need arise. Also important to note: There are NO U.S. laws prohibiting National Guard troops from also joining their States Defense Forces. This dilemma occurred during the Civil War with many citizen soldiers choosing to serve their states instead of the Federal Government.
Obama is angered by the several State Governors who have reestablished State Defense Forces. These forces are described as: State Defense Forces (also known as State Guards, State Military Reserves, State Militias) in the United States are military units that operate under the sole authority of a state government; they are not regulated by the National Guard Bureau nor are they part of the Army National Guard of the United States. State Defense Forces are authorized by state and federal law and are under the command of the governor of each state. State Defense Forces are distinct from their states National Guard in that they cannot become federal entities.
Mr. Obama is fearful of these State Defense Forces, in that he does not have control of said forces, and with the U.S. Military stretched to near breaking from multiple deployments and theatre actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, these State military forces would be under the direct command and authority of the Governors in which states have said forces. In essence, the Governors would have de facto control of the United States.

But no link is provided to back up this key assertion.
That said, it probably is not a bad idea for the states to activate or start a militia, answering only to the state.
Because folks, sooner or later it is coming.
Umm, Pawlenty is no longer governor of Minnesota...
That's what I like about the Internet. Any time one reads an eyebrow-lifting article, the Killer Question is asked that will either give the item legs or kill it: "Source?"
In either event, it brings up an interesting question. During the Y2k flap it was reported that a Midwestern sheriff proposed deputizing all CCW holders in case things went bad. I wondered then, as I do now - suppose one did sign up for the "militia", THSHTF, and the governor called 'em out to serve in various parts of the state. Would guys leave their families in such times to serve elsewhere?
Why else would he be buying up all that ammo?
The two Governors leading this move are: Tim Pawlenty, Governor of Minnesota; and Rick Perry, Governor of Texas.
Apparently whoever wrote this nonsensical conspiracy theory is not aware Tim Pawlenty is no longer governor of Minnesota.
In essence, the Governors would have de facto control of the United States.
Laughable. I've seen the Virginia Defense Force people at various gun shows and they wouldn't be able to take control of squat.

Maybe 0b0z0 is afraid of stopping his "sons" and H0lder's people?
If the Governors do not, whoever does may soon be Governor.
Same with TN. In fact, they’re not allowed to be armed.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
NC still has a military structure buried in its constitution, although its been neglected since the 1800s, along with military spending.
I seriously doubt many US military or National Guard troops would take up arms against US citizens solely on Obama’s orders. I think Obama has more to fear from US military forces deposing him by force if he tries to make himself a dictator.
The date on the posted article WAS December 15.
Search Youtube for videos of US troops going door to door and relieving Americans of their firearms during Katrina, then see if you still believe what you just said.
It was nonsense then too.
Agreed, also. This is inflammatory, and possible “boob bait,” but - that being said - the Peace of Appomattox hasn’t been this precarious in more than 40 years.
