Awwwwww Crap~!

They are trying to coordinate/control the National Guards in all the States as well as first responders/State and local LEO's..............

This can't be good...and there is no reason for it unless they are either planning a constitutional crisis, or they expect one.

At best, any attack on the homeland by a terrorist or natural caused event will only affect a State or two at most. This seems like wayoverkill to me. Totally unnecessary as Governors coordinate as needed now without any damn order.

Regarding our exchange a day or so ago about the military and its use within our borders.

Does this article give you any cause for concern?

"“I don’t get how Obama and his hand-selected governors of 10 States are going to issue orders to the governors of the other 40 states? Because this sounds like the Feds trying to cloak their intended attempt to federalize the state militias and National Guards with the consensus of only 10 selected Governors?” ~~~ Great point!,,,

IMHO there is no way in hell this can be enforced in

all states,,,

Maybe in the North and some places on the West coast,,,"

--------------------------------------------------------

Sure would be a start though. Of course, count TX out, then as was mentioned earlier, 6 of the 10 states would likely include CA, NY, MI, IL, OH, PA

there's an awful lot of folks in just those 6 states. Through in WA and OR and you've got the entire continental west coast "under control" where a whole lot-o-import/export happens.

One million person Civil Security Force as fully funded, armed and equipped as the military Armed Forces of the USA.

One big difference. Unlike the military which swears an oath of allegiance to the Constitution, this force swears allegiance to the Presidency!!!

These power grab activities are about the only transparent items of this administration. At least to observers paying attention.

"You walk into this room at your own risk, because it leads to the future; not a future that will be, but one that might be. This is not a new world: It is simply an extension of what began in the old one. It has patterned itself after every dictator who has ever planted the ripping imprint of a boot on the pages of history since the beginning of time. It has refinements, technological advancements, and a more sophisticated approach to the destruction of human freedom. But like every one of the super states that preceded it, it has one iron rule: Logic is an enemy, and truth is a menace. This is Mr. Romney Wordsworth, in his last forty-eight hours on Earth. He’s a citizen of the State, but will soon have to be eliminated, because he’s built out of flesh and because he has a mind.

I count all the Gulf Coast states out,,,

Folks in this part of the country ain’t gunna put up with

any of this “Jack Boot” krap at all,,,

The talk at the gun show last saturday was :

“What Has Happened To This Country ?!”,,,ETC.,,,

I saw many young shooters (10-12yo) with their first rifle.

Really gave me Hope for this country,,,;0)

As for the ports :

They can be shut down at any time,,,

This is why I harp on folks to be ready to just stay home

when/if there is a SHTF moment,,,

3 months worth of whatever is needed to just be able to

lock the doors and “starve the beast”,,,

I really feel sorry for the folks that live in big cities

...Shrub started it...This requirement was enacted while Bush was still pres.

“The formation of the Council of Governors was required by the Fiscal Year 2008 National Defense Authorization Act which stated, “The President shall establish a bipartisan Council of Governors to advise the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the White House Homeland Security Council on matters related to the National Guard and civil support missions.” (NDAA FY2008, Sec 1822)”

But I’ll go ahead and give my interpretation of all of this...

But seriously, we are one crisis (natural or man-made) away from some serious infringements upon our populace...All these things do is lock and load the governments means to an end, and these acts cock the hammers back...

You can imagine what the cause will be to take the safety off...

As in the import of foreign troops. Chinese and maybe Russians. Maybe others? Maybe send one of the middle states to help NY control and open the east coast to foreign troop transports.

I don’t get how Obama and his hand-selected governors of 10 States are going to issue orders to the governors of the other 40 states? Because this sounds like the Feds trying to cloak their intended attempt to federalize the state militias and National Guards with the consensus of only 10 selected Governors?

THe first ten will be the big ten, with most of the USA's population. This is just the camel's nose in the tent.

Or look at it this way. Would the New York National Guard have much trouble "keeping order" in Connecticut?

This is a REALLY bad sign. The president must know that a “severe disruption” is coming. Probably a monetary collapse or crisis on an Argentina 2002 scale. That’s my guess.

Remember when the local Chinese military(!) refused to attack in Tienanmen Square? The government sent them elsewhere and brought in units from far away places who weren't "neighbors" or family and didn't really know what was going on so they'd believe what the government told them? They attacked.

Given our enemedia control of the majority of "news"/propaganda, many of the guard troops from Pennsylvania or Illinois who will not know the citizens of Arizona or South Carolina may just believe that a bunch of armed "racists" or "terrorists" have arisen to destroy our country. Maybe they would fire on us which our own red state guard or regular military would not. Maybe.

“This can’t be good...and there is no reason for it unless they are either planning a constitutional crisis, or they expect one.”

My guess is that the constitutional crisis could come on Jan 20, 2010 if/when they refuse to seat the newly elected Senator Scott Brown from Massachusetts.

Yes but perhaps 1.5 million have any real battle training or experience,,,,the other 1.5 million are administrative paper pushers, pentagon wonks, cooks and medical personell.

3 million divided by 50 states is 60 thousand per state. It took a surge of some 40 or 50 thousand troops on top of the 120 thousand already in Iraq just to bring things under control there. Plus if things broke out in this country...new recruits would dry up.

The control freaks would have to resort to nukes or the threat of them to bring the country to heel!
