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.
Federal action, including the use of federal military forces, is authorized when necessary to protect the federal property or functions, the directive states.

Does it include demands that non-liberal women be sent to concentration camps to be starved to death by gleeful totalitarians?
Not a lot of difference between the wet dreams of Leftists and the recent rampage killer.
When even the freaking USDA has submachine guns - you know that Obama’s plan to use all federal agencies to subvert the general population is just around the corner.
Yep, plus swat teams for:
Railroad Retirement Board
Tennessee Valley Authority
Office of Personnel Management
Consumer Product Safety Commission
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
This needs to be in front of Bohner to have him resign for not having begun impeachment proceedings.
“Federal action, including the use of federal military forces, is authorized when necessary to protect the federal property or functions, the directive states.”
Humm! Makes me think about NV and the Sagebrush Rebellion.
He mentions Cliven Bundy in the piece.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
How long before you are legally required to stand and applaud the fuhrer?
There will be a spark, lit by tyrqnical government agents that will create a confligration we have not seen since the CW.
I guess that occupying EPA properties will be an issue.
In other words it will depend if the disturbers are leftist or not if the army goes in.
And if they all decide to turn on Obama??? Pleasant thought.
That’s what it looks like to me, 0bama is all about 0bama.
In a crisis, the government is all about self preservation; they are the last people to be trusted. It’s all about COG, continuity of government, and that is a global phenomenon.
I wonder how they will handle the Dann family (Native Americans). They were very early into the Sagebrush Rebellion.
