Newsmax.com, Jim Meyers --

A new report from the U.S. Army War College discusses the use of American troops to quell civil unrest brought about by a worsening economic crisis.

The report from the War College’s Strategic Studies Institute warns that the U.S. military must prepare for a “violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States” that could be provoked by “unforeseen economic collapse” or “loss of functioning political and legal order.”

Posse Comitatus

The Posse Comitatus Act - Prohibits search, seizure, or arrest powers to US military personnel.

This is flushed too, is it?

The 130-year-old Posse Comitatus Act restricts the military’s role in domestic law enforcement. But a 1994 Defense Department Directive allows military commanders to take emergency actions in domestic situations to save lives, prevent suffering or mitigate great property damage, according to the Business Journal.

And Gen. Tommy Franks, who led the U.S. military operations to liberate Iraq, said in a 2003 interview that if the U.S. is attacked with a weapon of mass destruction, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government.

The 'unrest' may come from our elected representatives giving millions of ILLEGAL aliens amnesty when the American people have continually DEMANDED they not do this, continually DEMANDED during this post 9/11 era our borders and ports be secured - they are not. We are not being represented by the people we hired to represent us and enforce our laws but in the interest of a NAU they commit treason against us and our country and We the People have had enough...

More than 2 million citizens have lost their jobs this year - more than $300 BILLION is spent on the aiding and abetting of ILLEGAL aliens annually, our citizens are kidnapped, raped and murdered by ILLEGALS and the diseases they bring across our borders with them, we haven't had a problem with in decades - but times are achanging! We have been and are being betrayed, lied to and threatened by the people We hired to represent and protect us because We want our laws enforced against this invasion, our borders secured and nation and citizens protected - We are not the criminals - our lawmakers are!

A crackdown at the tacky Jan 20th Inauguration would be a start, and would "send a message" that a socialist revolution won't be acceptable to everybody.

Niether will Obama's plans for a "civilian youth corps". Interestingly, the " Change.gov " Obama website had promptly removed this previous reference, presumably because many found the mandatory tone of the scheme just a bit unsettling:

"Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year."

This step towards Obama's ideals of socialist unity and (organized and mandatory) common sacrifice for the next generation sounds a lot like communist East Germany's Free German Youth (FDJ) or even the Hitler Youth.

A President Obama "calling" on all us to serve his collectivist agenda , and attacking those who understand the job-destroying nature of his planned tax increases as "selfish", etc. should sound frightening to any American for whom the ideals of individualism, entrepreneurial ambition, and (voluntary) charity are what made this country great.

No more reassuring are Mr Obama's plans for a "civilian national security force" (militia?), which he shockingly said in July would be "just as powerful and well-funded as the U.S. Military."

"Security for who?" is the question that quickly comes to mind, as Hitler had the same kind of security apparatus, staffed with his most loyal followers in the SS (Schutzstaffel, or "shield squadron"). The infamous SS was also a powerful parallel security force outside the command structure of the Army, who received the best of everything... and was heavily politicized.

The military has reason to be threatened by Obama's nutty, Stalinist plans- might want to draw a line in the sand sooner, rather than later.

Yes, has been since 2006.
The Military Commission Act. Habeas Corpus is gone also.
Which was the anchor to the Bill of Rights.

For the first time in American history, 3 active combat units are currently deployed to the U.S.

Civil unrest? Yes. Because the government will start it.
Watch.

Only GOD knows what is coming.
I am fortunate to have a place to go.
The masses will not.
But, 20 years ago we were called nuts, wackos, anti-American, ET... for telling people martial law was on the agenda.
And that a catastrophic, well planned financial collapse was coming.
So we planned accordingly.
Good luck. Your going to need it.

A previous writer hit the nail on the head, our lawmakers are the criminals, we the American people are not. However, the idiots that vote these vermin in election after election are just as guilty as the thugs they vote for. If you want to dance in a pit of vipers, you have no right to complain when you get bit and are dying.

In the words of Obama's pastor, "the chickens are coming home to roost" and those on Capital Hill, which includes the "messiah" Obama and his Demcrat thugs are seeing first signs of trouble brewing.

Obama made a lot of promises to his "I want everything handed to me" cult of followers and he is not going to be able to follow through.

His sophomoric ideas of resurrecting FDR's work programs of WWII to save the US economy are laughable. It was the war that got the economy going again, not Democrat socialist work programs.

And as far as infrastructure, WHO IS GOING TO GET THE CONTRACTS FOR THESE JOBS?

Obama's Democrat thugs of course.

The way Democrats love to play games with words would be quite usefull with the 1944 Defense Department Directive which allows military commanders to take emergency actions in domestic situations to "save lives", "prevent suffering" or "mitigate great property damage."

Franks comment that "if the US is attacked with a weapon of mass destruction, the Constitution will likely be discontinued in favor of a military form of government" is music to Democrat ears.

I think Franks is alluding to what everyone in this country knows, the Democrats are weak when it comes to defending this country.

A devestating terrorist attack is all the more possible under a Democrat regime. Such an attack would play right into their extremist ideology and twisted views on The Constitution as being a "living breathing document", in order words it means whatever they want it to mean at any point in time to suit thier agenda and absolute POWER.

While there are Obama supporters in the military who would be happy to be part of his new Hitler like army, I can only pray that true Americans in the service would see the treachery and desert.

Perhaps the only way to get rid of our corrupt government is for a devasting terroist attack
on capital hill, where most of the organized crime that runs this country would be wiped out.
Then the idiots that keep voting these vermin in, could no longer do so.

The story is telling those who are wise, what is coming. There will be a total economic collapse.
Soon. There will be civil wars. People will be hungry. There families and children hungry.
If I were wise. I would begin to stockpile all essentials necessary for survival.
Stockpile is not limited to food. You'll be glad you did.

Pssssst....hey you.......guess what?

The elections over and by virtue of the centrist liberals and conservatives that Obama has chosen to run our government it is clear that he is not a Socialist or a Marxist or a Communist.

National Service is a good idea, so is Public Service and it is no more Socialist or less American to serve your country in a peaceful manner than it is to serve in our armed forces as both serve the needs of and combat threats to our Nation.

Paranoia will destroy ya.

Put down your guns, get of your butts and help repair the damage done by the outgoing Administration.

United We Stand after the divider made us fall.

Stop buying crap made in China.

Help your neighbors.

Buy American even if it means you can't have as many things.

If you need something not made in America buy it from a country where people are paid enough to contribute to our mutual economies like Europe and Japan where the people make enough money to buy our stuff on occasion.

Buying at Wal-Mart only digs our hole deeper and sends more money overseas to places where people don't earn enough money to contribute to any economies.

The same people who defined "liberation" as military occupation, death and destruction in Iraq will be defining "saving lives" and "preventing suffering" however the f- they want to define it. If the US is "attacked" with a weapon of mass destruction, the prime suspect will be our own leadership, who think the American people will trade promises of "security" for the end of representative government. Are we that stupid? Look up "false flag operation."

Look up USAF Brigadier General Benton Partin's bomb damage assessment of the Murrah Building bombing in Oklahoma City.

Look up Emad Salem, FBI informant in the "terrorist cell" allegedly responsible for the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing... Listen to some of the audio he recorded of conversations he had with his FBI handlers.

Look up evidence of extremely high temperatures at the World Trade Center (2001) and high-tech incendiary residue in the dust.

Ask yourself what happened to the investigation of military-grade Anthrax attacks.

Look up Operation Northwoods.

Look up Operation Ajax, and example of the US "bringing democracy to the middle east"

And above all, have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year!(We're all in this together. If you're in the military, remember that before you aim your gun at someone).
