Skip to comments.Inside the Ring: Memo outlines Obama’s plan to use the military against citizens
Posted on 05/29/2014 9:02:21 AM PDT by mojito
A 2010 Pentagon directive on military support to civilian authorities details what critics say is a troubling policy that envisions the Obama administrations potential use of military force against Americans.
The directive contains noncontroversial provisions on support to civilian fire and emergency services, special events and the domestic use of the Army Corps of Engineers.
The troubling aspect of the directive outlines presidential authority for the use of military arms and forces, including unarmed drones, in operations against domestic unrest.
This appears to be the latest step in the administrations decision to use force within the United States against its citizens, said a defense official opposed to the directive.
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 undocumented, unvetted TYRANT
will not kill the Moslems, the felons, the black panthers
or any illegal immigrant. The DNC, Unions,
and the EXEMPT Congress and their EXEMPT staff
and EXEMPT families will get the best pickings
of the taken and dead, just like Nazi Germany.
I’m surprised that the memo didn’t specify that force was only to be used against the Tea Party, western ranchers, and unauthorized groupings of white people.
The question now is, "When will he/they implement this attack on the citizenry ?"
Many of us are out here, armed and prepared, but they won't come after us individually out here ... they like the urban conclave as a fortress wall and hiding spot.
If they do come after us, it will be individual news reports never reported ... no one will know.
That's the one they'll use to rationalize the second Ft. Sumpter.
Revolt is coming.
he’s already released all of the above from jail!
How’s he gonna figure out where they are now? The voting booth? The drive-around democrat vans on voting day?
a Piece of Shiite for starters
The supers won't exist as a Constitutional force when the SHTF
so much shame to go around...
and yet, we'll still get "principled" people voting in more rats this year...just watch..
And didn’t I read just yesterday that the enemies are attempting to castrate the courthouses ?
Obama’s real enemy is us.
Would engineered civil disturbances be considered "unexpected"?
Similar directives have existed for over 40 years, this one is nothing new. There may be cause for concern with Obama at the helm, but this framework has been in place for most of our lives and was used to employ troops in Little Rock, Detroit, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, etc., etc.
I’m not that concerned about Obamanation - the devil is always very active just before God does something amazing. I see a resurgence of the good guys and America having “a new birth of freedom.” Maybe there’ll be some kind of spiritual awakening. That’s the root issue. Politics and politicians aren’t the answer. Christ alive in the hearts of the American People - THAT’s the answer.
If Romney is the best the GOP can offer, I assure you that our Republic is already dead.
Actually, the Rat Romney brought this on by attacking
CONSERVATIVES (eg. Palin and the Speaker and Sen Thompson)
and defending Obama.
Romney is the REASON Obama won in 2008 and 2012.
Americans have been cursed by Romney who has
given America gay marriage, RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE
and the undocumented Tyrant.
I do not believe there will be an awful lot of commanders of our armed forces that will follow such immoral and un-lawful orders from civil authority...
What will happen is those commanders will be relieved and their deputies or other officers will be appointed in those positions to carry out those orders...
Now, what the troops down the chain of command will do, that may be anyone’s guess, but I would venture that most will not follow either...
The numbers will be decreased, but sufficient when deployed to trouble spots that are easy to quell, that other regions will fall into line defacto...
This will become the line of demarcation...Those areas “they” control will remain with the Union...Those they cannot will probably separate their association...
Everyone loses at this point...
Just my take...
Duplicate - same source posted on Front Page yesterday.
Well, there you go. The obvious defense is to make sure we all have a spare flag of, oh, say Egypt, Syria, Soddyland, Iraq. Turkey or take your pick of any 12th century Muzzie enclave. Just wave the appropriate flag from your window when the brownshirts parade thru-——and keep your rifle out of sight until you get a clear shot.
And I’m guessing there will be a couple divisions of all-Mexican wetback units, non-english-speaking, in the style of the old USSR who used units from another language speaking neighborhood when they needed to crack heads.
The youngins know what’s up.
“U.S. official said the Obama administration considered but rejected deploying military force under the directive during the recent standoff with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his armed supporters.”
Probably the only reason it was rejected was political timing.
Obama said he would use the military for climate change at West Point. Maybe he will use climate change as the excuse.
Obama Vows to Battle Global Climate Change in West Point Speech
Ping for later.
“Im surprised that the memo didnt specify that force was only to be used against the Tea Party, western ranchers, and unauthorized groupings of white people.”
This is at the discretion of the POTUS. This means it will be directed against teaparty implicitly but not explicitly.
Amigos .... have a look .... multiple threads on this.
Not necessary. That was already a given when patriots et al were formally labeled terrorists by the Pentagon, at the behest of the America haters in DC.
They have drawn the lines and made it quite clear who is on each side.
Some of your neighbors are or will be the new American Vichy. Collaborators. Whatever it takes to keep the free stuff coming to them. You are worth less than an EBT card.
This takes me back to discussions of Title X, Sections 331-333 when Clinton was President:
332. Whenever the President considers that unlawful obstructions, combinations, or assemblages, or rebellion against the authority of the United States, make it impracticable to enforce the laws of the United States in any State by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, he may call into Federal service such of the militia of any State, and use such of the armed forces, as he considers necessary to enforce those laws or to suppress the rebellion.
333. The President, by using the militia or the armed forces, or both, or by any other means, shall take such measures as he considers necessary to suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy, if it
In any situation covered by clause (1), the State shall be considered to have denied the equal protection of the laws secured by the Constitution.
Might be a run on spray tan sometime soon...
Turn it around. America's real enemy is Obama, not that he doesn't have plenty of help.
Why is the BLM ordering sub-machine guns???
Do they think they can out-shoot a cowboy/rancher who can ake out the eye of a coyote at a distance?
I dunno but I’ve also read that the department of education has a swat team.
I think these forces will be sent into the urban city centers to quell rioting. There are just not enough police to control the feral urban youths in the inner cities. The mayors are likely to demand it when the shtf.
You’re no fun.
Although your observations regarding the state of our "urban centers," such as parts of Chicago is true, I just don't see these forces being used against 0bama's sons and Holder's people.
YouTube, 4 min 15 sec, CSPAN, Cruz to Eric Holder:
“Say, based on your understanding of the law, do ya think it’d be OK to drone an American sipping coffee in a cafe WITHIN the USA..?”
Watch how Cruz has to ask Holder that question FOUR SEPARATE TIMES:
What's that definition of insanity?
“Although your observations regarding the state of our “urban centers,” such as parts of Chicago is true, I just don’t see these forces being used against 0bama’s sons and Holder’s people.”
In every instance I can remember, the Police are sent in to quell the riots started by the minorities in the urban city centers. The only exception I can think of are instances where it is just too dangerous for the police and they pull back and “let it burn” watching from a distance.
