There will be no one left to protect you
Canada Free Press ^ | 11/2/08 | Alan Caruba

Posted on 11/02/2008 10:41:11 AM PST by DogBarkTree

Barack Obama wants to institute a Civilian National Security Force, a vast militia not unlike Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, a personal army. He knows he would need such a force to protect him and to enforce his will on Americans.

Americans will have not seen such arbitrary power used against them since the days of the Civil War when Lincoln put the Constitution in the bottom drawer of his desk and set about arresting anyone who opposed his policies to enforce the Union on southern States seeking secession. The moral issue was slavery. The Constitutional issue was states rights.

If you want to see another civil war, just wait for this new security force to come into being. Obama would need it because the concept of posse comitatus forbids the use of the U.S. military to enforce laws within the nation. An army of domestic followers of “the One” would fill that need, assuming that all other law enforcement agencies failed to resist such a horrendous plan.

Obama has only about 30% of our military supporting him. If he ever were to scam his way into becoming president, that support would likely drop even more.

Does Obama anticipate having to battle his own military—could that be part of his reason for this civilian security force?

I think that, God forbid, if something like this happened, many in the military, as well as millions of armed civilians, would make short work of any such force.

Let’s hope it never, ever comes to pass.

At a guess...yes. I think Obama assumes too much (#1 being winning the election just 'cause he cheats), that once anything happens, that those who voted for him will actually stick with him for the long haul.

Had I not seen the video of Obi talking about this, it would be easy to write this off as a tinfoil-hat conspiracy. But I have seen the video.

Americans should be very, very afraid of this thug. Unfortunately it appears half of us can't get to the polls fast enough to enthrone him.

Don't forget Silence The Opposition (i.e., “Fairness Doctrine”, and regulation of the Internet). Hampering communications is a key to fighting a successful war. If your opponents can't talk to each other and others, organization becomes difficult. Fighting an unorganized opposition is always easier than fighting an organized one. That is the reason why the Obomaniacs attack individuals, to keep them in fear and lacking organization. It's all in Alinsky’s playbook. Obama was raised on that, remember.

Perhaps this CNFS is what Biden was referring to when he said that the Obama admin. would make a very "unpopular" decision in the first six months of his term. Or maybe they're considering reinstating the draft after mass military defections.

A scenario:

Obama wins the election.

1. All military and National Guard leaders who do not swear loyalty are immediately dismissed or transferred and Obama loyalists replace them. And note: some of those loyalists are not military personnel.

2. Obama forms his national security force, but many of the Governors of the States do not recognize their police officer powers. No matter. He is in charge and has a veto proof Senate and House, and all funding for the States who oppose him is terminated. The Governors cave.

3. Obama only needs one vote on the US Supreme Court. An unfortunate accident takes out about four conservative members of the US Supreme Court and Obama packs them with loyalists. He then advances the legal theory that the 2nd Amendment does not apply to individuals but only to militias. He has the only authorized civilian militia and they are the only civilians who may possess firearms. The US Supreme court agrees and reverses Heller, stating in effect that the 2nd Amendment does not apply to individuals.

I predict that if 0bama is elected, there will be many resignations from the military. 0 will try to pack the military with people who favor him. Remember he said he was unhappy that such a large proportion of the military came from rural areas? Vigorous application of “affirmative action” can change that. In most of the world, the military favors the local socialist thug dictator/kleptocrat. That can happen here, too. Ditto for the FBI and other armed Federales.

Just for a moment of lucidity, do you really think the men who run our military that take an oath that says:

"I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."

are going to let this empty suit do as he pleases?

He isn’t referring to the NG, but a National police force on par with the US Military in funding, training and equipment.

To ensure our security. More like to take those who resist socialism to be re-educated or failing that to be executed as they did in Asia, NAZI Germany and the Soviet Union.

With O we are heading to open armed conflict in America or slavery.

The Civilian National Security Force Obama proposes could easily become like neighborhood watchers in the Soviet Union, China and Cuba who reported to the government about their neighbors. Say the wrong thing, listen to talk radio or voice some dissent about Lord Obama and you could be silenced or just disappear. Welcome to Obama’s police state.

Flood Drudge and the MSM out with posts such as this.

GO HERE FOR HUNDREDS OF MSM ADDRESSES!
http://www.protestthemedia.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=7

IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY, PUT THIS INFORMATION BEFORE THE AMERICAN VOTER.
THEY HAVEN’T A CLUE BECAUSE THE MSM HAS WITHHELD IT.
PUT THIS INFORMATION BEFORE THE VOTER BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

This election is like no other in the history of America. The issues are insignificant compared to what is at stake. What can be more dangerous than having a man bereft of conscience, a serial liar, and one who cannot distinguish his fantasies from reality as the leader of the free world?
America is on the verge of destruction.
There is no insanity greater than electing a man with a Muslim background, extensive Muslim, terrorist and Communist ties to the White House!

The following is from ‘45 Communist goals in conquering America’:

http://www.uhuh.com/nwo/communism/comgoals.htm

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

Obama speech- ‘Disarm America’:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fU4sVQV3Lhk&eurl=http://search.yahoo.com/search?ei=utf-8&fr=slv8-cj_06&p=disarm%20america%20obama&type=2811314
Transcript:

“First, I’ll stop spending $9 billion a month in Iraq. I’m the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning. And as president I will end it.[i.e. not win it]

Second, I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending.

I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems.

I will not weaponize space.

I will slow our development of future combat systems.

And I will institute an independent “Defense Priorities Board” to ensure that the Quadrennial Defense Review is not used to justify unnecessary spending.

Third, I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal, I will not develop new nuclear weapons; I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material; and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert, and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals.”
(Is it mere coincidence this same candidate wants to disarm our nuclear capability at a time when terrorist Muslim nations are expanding their nuclear weapons capability? Is it mere coincidence this candidate wants to reduce our military at a time of global jihad Jihad from Muslim nations?)

The Socialist Party USA calls for an immediate withdrawal from Iraq. Obama says, “I will end this war,” with never a reference to “winning” or “victory.”
The Socialist Party USA calls for the “unconditional disarmament” by the United States. Obama has promised to dramatically reduce defense spending. Listen to his words here:

Obama’s stealth ‘Global Poverty Act’ contains PROVISIONS TO BEGIN THE PROCESS OF TAKING AWAY THE PRIVATE CITIZEN’S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO OWN A GUN FOR SELF PROTECTION!

And what do we do when America’s military is gutted and the rogue nations are nuked up?

NATIONAL SECURITY AND FOREIGN POLICY

* He opposed the Patriot Act.
* He is willing to meet with Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Kim Jong Il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and, worse, without preconditions.
* He voted YES on providing habeas corpus for Guantanamo detainees.
* He has said that one of his first goals after being elected would be to have a conference with all Muslim nations.
* He has publicly vowed to cut-and-run in Iraq.
* Has repeatedly said the surge in Iraq has not succeeded.
*Biden said Obama will be tested by our enemies.
This announcement was prompted by FBI revealing that terrorist chatter on the net and elsewhere is that they are preparing an attack on America.

SECOND AMENDMENT
* He voted NO on prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers.
* He supports banning gun ownership.
*Obama’s ‘Global Poverty Act’ contains provisions to start the process of banning gun ownership by private citizens!

Open the borders!
The Socialist Party USA believes in open borders and six-months residency as the only requirement for U.S. citizenship. Obama marched with illegal aliens in Chicago in support of “comprehensive” immigration reform. Listen to Obama’s promises to La Raza in 2007.
http://my.barackobama.com/page/content/imi7...

Obama had NEVER disavowed it!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cA0GEV1ibY&eurl=http://maggiesnotebook.blogspot.com/2008/04/im-speechless.html

SPREAD THE WEALTH AROUND!!
Obama went overseas to promise the “people of the world” that he would end the divide between rich and poor nations, and said, “people of the world, this is our moment, this is our time.”

Obama is running for a hostile takeover of the US on behalf of the anti-American international community. His plan is quite plainly to rape and pillage America’s wealth, and redistribute it to the rest of the world. His speech was brazenly candid about this.

He has already put forth this very plan in the S.2433 Global Poverty Act of 2007, which he authored in the Senate. This bill, in fact will stick the U.S for 845 BILLION dollars. Thats $2500 dollars for every man, woman and child in America. That’s in addition to the BILLIONS we already funnel into third world countries who hate us.
(It’s coming up for vote soon, and I urge all to contact their representatives to stop this Obama atrocity. )

Study Obama’s ‘Global Poverty Act’ carefully!
Obama’s ‘Global Poverty Act’ Obama’s stealth ‘Global Poverty Act’ contains PROVISIIONS TO BEGIN THE PROCESS OF TAKING AWAY THE PRIVATE CITIZEN’S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO OWN A GUN FOR SELF PROTECTION!

Run a candidate that has a Muslim name.

Run that candidate with the Muslim name with a Muslim background.

Run that candidate with the Muslim name and Muslim background with pro-Muslim connections.

Run that same candidate with those same connections in the U.S. during a war in which U.S. is battling Islam.

And do it during a time in U.S. history when the battle cry is diversity, multiculturalism, and nonjudgmentalism.

Run a candidate that is immune to ALL criticism of any kind, because to criticize would make you a racist, AND THERE’S NOTHING WORSE THAN THAT in today’s modern life.

STUDY THIS FILE CAREFULLY:

“Sounds like something we already have- the National Guard.”

NO! The name National Guard is misleading.

The “National Guard” is each individual state’s military. When it is not operating under federal call up it is under the command of the governer of its state. When it is “federalized”, such as for duty in Iraq, it is under the command of the President but is also subject to posse comitatus. The posse comitatus act does NOT apply when under command of the governor. That is why a state can use their own National Guard for enforcement actions such as suppressing riots and looting and so on.

Obama’s federal force would answer only to him. Very dangerous to liberty.

HUGE difference.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn had stated in his text that Stalin, early on, would have gotten nowhere if people had resisted. The early NKVD sent “squads” of only 4-5 men to pound on the doors at 3 am. He (Solzhenitsyn) said that IF they had only laid in ambush with pick axes and knives the whole tragedy of the gulag would be a different story indeed. Stalin would have run out of willing thugs early on.
In the beginning the dictator’s henchmen were few in number, same with the Nazi’s.

There will always be a few brainwashed soldiers, sadistic policemen and treasonous politicians who would advocate “arresting” free thinkers and hauling them away in trucks.

At the end of day these traitors still have to go home, which is next door to you & me (and a few million others). I believe that the vast majority of the police and military will side with the Constitution, their neighbors and their families.
Thugs will always side with their paycheck, benefits and pension - make them be the ones afraid to leave their house.

IF this whole idea of a ‘civilian security force” comes into being, you will need to decide now where you stand.
Choose wisely.

As I wrote, it is a scenario. Remember that the left moves slowly when necessary, but strikes like a viper when opportunity arises. He would replace as soon as possible those who do not support him, just as Clinton replaced good people with jerks like Wesley Clark. Obama would have a minimum of four years to replace people not loyal to him, and this means not only the military but the IRS and DOJ. And just for a moment of lucidity, consider that he would be doing a LOT of things that will be neither published nor investigated by a sympathetic MSM. Remember too that he will issue any number of executive orders, and he has plenty of time to manufacture some excuse to declare martial law in the name of National Security.

A pro McCain supporter came to my house the other day and I told her that this is the first Presidential election I have voted in that I was genuinely fearful. And I am!

I give credit to the left for being able to accomplish fantastic usurpation of power and the ability to destabilize legitimate governments, and that includes OURS! The left is expert at using the power of the Government to control and punish. Obama's allies and mentors are salivating for the chance to get the levers of power and the useful fools in America might just accommodate them on Tuesday.

He can pack it like FDR tried to do! (The number of Justices is set by tradition not by statue or the Constitution.)

Look at the the clowns today, see enough honor & character to stop a similar attempt today.
