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.
