Expand Posse Comitatus to include ALL armed federal law enforcement personnel, and define WHERE each may go.
The individual states may then choose to either search or not search everywhere else.
Wikipedia: The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385) passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction, with the intention (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) of substantially limiting the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement. The Act prohibits members of the Army and Air Force from exercising nominally state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain law and order on non-federal property (states and their counties and municipal divisions) within the United States.
(BTW - I heard an interesting theory that the States’ National Guard troops are deliberately being kept out of the country, FAR AWAY, under the President’s control, deliberately in order to ensure that no states can resist the federal government when TSHTF.)
Good luck with that in a Congress determined to increase Federal powers in the name of fighting terror.
Look. We have 2 threats to our freedom. One is immediate, the other is long term. Neither has to do with terrorism.
Obama is the immediate threat. Congress is deadlocked, leaving Obama with little to stop his Marxist aims. But if we lock the Federal purse (debt ceiling) until Jan. 2013, Obama will have no money to further his goals & get reelected.
The second threat is Congress. They keep passing laws that flaunt the Constitution & steal our money & freedoms. That problem will be solved in Nov. 2012 when the TEA Party & Conservatives assume the majority in the House & Senate. The ruling class will be neutered at that point.
Until then, the less the current Congress & Obama get done, the better off this country will be. We are being led by thieves, liars, cheats, & perverts. These people are unwilling & incapable of doing what is right for America. I'd rather they do nothing for 16 more months than continue to ruin this country. Cutting off the money NOW is the surest way to do that, & it is the surest way of denying Obama a second term.
I predict this, & you can hold me to it: If the debt ceiling is increased to cover spending until the 2012 election, not only will Obama be reelected, but Reid, Pelosi, McConnell, & Boehner will retain their leadership positions, & the spending will continue until the USA is in unavoidable default, sometime before 2017. I guarantee it!
My, what an interesting acronym for a government agency. Sounds so ... threatening, so badassed.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about governmental agency acronyms that spell words, it’s to be very wary.
Who’s going to round up this bunch when they exceed their authority? You know it’s inevitable. Arguably, they already have, right out of the gate.
I’m always worried when I see links to infowars.
Alex Jones works by mixing elements of truth with elements of lies.
So I have to ask “which part is true, and which part is the lie”
Ping to 41. Your opinion?
Last year, we were staying at a hotel in Gettysburg (a 90-min. drive from DC) during the off-season where the VIPR was having an extensive meeting and VIPR personnel filled the hotel. Folks, I had never heard of this agency. You would not believe the gorgeous fleets of brand-new SUVs and pick-ups these government employees drive. They filled the parking lot. There was not a smile on the faces of any of these men (mostly-very few women) even though I have a bunch of cute little kids who were awed by their uniforms and equipment. It was SCARY to me, very chilling.
(BTW - I heard an interesting theory that the States National Guard troops are deliberately being kept out of the country, FAR AWAY, under the Presidents control, deliberately in order to ensure that no states can resist the federal government when TSHTF.)
I have heard this too. I dismissed the theory at first.
“There was not a smile on the faces of any of these men “
Jobs like this draw headcases like dung draws flies.
I bet half of them would be flagged on a municipal police department psych screen.
And their purpose and equipment just DUPLICATES the local police and fire departments, the FBI, etc etc. Why do taxpayers put up with this nonsense? Why do our elected officials allow it?
“My, what an interesting acronym for a government agency. Sounds so ... threatening, so badassed.”
Yes indeed. Fanged venomous snakes. You know that a group of LEO bureaucrats with virility issues and arrested development at around 18 years old came up with this. Lots of black I bet too. Like, like . . .
PROTECTIVE SQUADRON DEATH’S HEAD UNITS! How cool is THAT!
“Why do our elected officials allow it?”
They allow it because they want it. They want it because they are afraid. They are afraid because of what is now obvious. They are our oppressors.
What you are saying has very serious repercussions for the citizens of the USA. There is the factor that citizens under the guise of government are being pitted against citizens who just want to have normal activities. I think of the photos of the rise of Nazis and Hitler in Germany. However. the more dangerous and fundamental thing in a society is when the citizens themselves do not see and have no remorse about using or being part of the power of government to badger and even hurt others. This is not crime remedy but government strong arming it’s citizens. If our elected officials, leaving out those condoning such acts of government, would get serious about what is happening they should act now.
Of interest. Sturm Abteilung ping.
53 US Taxpayer funded Agencies!!!
I can count at least two members of congress who would shut these cretins down, in a heartbeat. That's 483 against 2. But hey, they are "kooks", anyway.
The way I see it, with those odds, we have 2 options.
1. go down like General Custer
The odds are the Tea Party will be our last gasp at free air. . Since our master's overseers will infiltrate it, disrupt it, corrupt it, demonize it, and finally, disband it. No doubt, they are already on it.
hunh. No sooner do I post something about “we’re not at the stage where we have brownshirts yet” than I learn about this unbelievably totalitarian feature of Hope and Change.
There is always a reason for what the feds do. Why the many Governors allow their guardsmen/women to be deployed internationally, is the question. Especially since the world is not (officially) at war, where Congress has not declared war, and where only "contingencies abroad exist."
Thought this article deserved a bump - I hope all Freepers read this!
