The Posse Comitatus Act and Executive Order 13732


Barack Obama is at it again.  Taking on his shoulders the right of the president by executive fiat order to rewrite the laws of our country.  This time it is one even more fraught with dangerous possibilities of a takeover of our country by a sitting president in order to move away from a republic.

It was signed on July 1, 2016 which was the Friday before Independence Day.  He was probably cackling malevolently as he put a pen to paper to sign it into executive order, assuming rightly no one would bother to spill the beans before congress let out.  In addition, it did not hit the federal register right away and if I remember right did not show up in the White House listing either for a while.  I remember checking not long after July 4th and had not seen it then.

Where were congressional leaders?   Out politicking of course.  What the bloody H##ll were they doing for the last two months?  Democrats knew about this order I am fairly certain.  Did Republicans?  Are we safe from a totalitarian government at this point? If the last few weeks are an example, the answer is NO!

The United Nations and its Agenda 2016 or 2030 should have ZERO place or authority in our country. Obama has worked diligently through his people to make it happen anyway over the last eight years.  He has made certain that there were many little chaos fires in order to hide his New World Order activities.  From guns, to trade deals, from human rights to law enforcement, Obama has marched clear-eyed toward a goal.

He is no dummy.  He does know how to present a “clown face” but it masks an agenda bought and paid for by the elite wanting a genocide restart to the world.  People like Soros, the Ford Foundation, and several others have piled money on groups like BLM and others to keep chaos stirring in order to mask their real intent.

CONGRESS – Why would Obama need to even write this or three succession orders so near to a presidential change of command?  Why was it not handed off to congress to prepare?  

 Why wasn’t there a MAJOR meltdown of anger over this executive order by the states and congress?  This is not what should be addressed by a president.   Impeachment now may be the only way to prevent Obama’s plans from continuing.

1- Emergency Power and the Militia Acts.  Stephen I. Vladeck,Yale Law Journal  October 7, 2004
“…borrowed from the eerily prescient 1998 movie The Siege, this scenario raises some extraordinarily serious and
difficult legal questions.  

 Among them, what are the limits of such executive military authority, insofar as both time and scope of power are concerned? Are there any? Can there be any? What role can courts, if they are even open, play during such a crisis? What remedy is there for violations of whatever constitutional mandates still apply? Who gets to say when the crisis is over? Most importantly, where would we start, the morning after, in trying to answer these questions, or even in trying to pose them?”

2- Department of Defense – Directive Number 3025.18 December 29, 2010, changes 2012
4 g. Federal military commanders, Heads of DoD Components, and/or responsible DoD civilian officials (hereafter referred to collectively as “DoD officials”) have IMMEDIATE RESPONSE AUTHORITY as described in this Directive. In response to a request for assistance from a civil authority, under imminently serious conditions and if time does not permit approval
from higher authority, DoD officials may provide an immediate response by temporarily employing the resources under their control, subject to any supplemental direction provided by higher headquarters, to save lives, prevent human suffering, or mitigate great property damage within the United States. Immediate response authority does not permit actions that would subject civilians to the use of military power that is regulatory, prescriptive, proscriptive, or compulsory.

4- Posse Comitatus Act (1878)  Encyclopedia.com. Michael I. Spak and Donald F. Spak

“the willful use of the army or air force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws is a felony, unless the use is expressly authorized by the Constitution or an act of Congress.  

Debate is ongoing as to whether the PCA should be repealed, moderated, or strengthened. Some argue that the act should be repealed because the federal government needs the full force of a flexible military to combat terrorism within the territorial United States. Others suggest the act is obsolete and should be repealed because numerous legislative exemptions have eroded the underlying policy and left the PCA a hollow shell. Others insist that although there are many exceptions, the act is essential to bar misuse of the military by civilian authorities and to prevent a military dictatorship from assuming control of the nation through use of the armed forces. Still others argue that the act means only that federal military forces may not be commandeered by civilian authorities for use in active and direct law enforcement as a posse comitatus. If local authorities need military personnel for specialized operations enforcing state laws, it is argued, they may call on the state governor for the assistance of the state National Guard.”

    A lot of people in Texas were seeing UN Trucks. I didn’t keep the articles….I dismissed them as nuts! Seems the emat of the article was that the UN IS/WAS here for Civil Unrest. That wasn’t true:

    UN vehicles and trucks spotted in the U.S. weren’t purchased to address imminent economic collapse in America; they were built in Virginia for UN operations abroad.

      Welcome to Hardnox Avenue. Yes I have put in some research on that topic. As the words remind us even evil can serve the greater good of His Plan. We must keep our eyes, faith, and hearts on His purpose not those fomented on earth.
