On December 1st, 2008 I again wrote about Posse Comitatus.
Posse Comitatus The Act forbids the use of the military of the United States as a posse comitatus (an armed body of men at the disposal of the King for the purposes of keeping the peace) or for law enforcement purposes, with the exception of the National Guard. Coupled with the Insurrection Act of 1807, we have a set of laws that govern the President of the United States of America’s ability to deploy troops within the United States to put down lawlessness, insurrection and rebellion.
This item caught my eye this am: The Frightening “Next Great Trend. Top trends forecaster Gerald Celente, says the next great trend is “…a breakdown of societies all over.”
When you see the legislation that has been passed such as the repeal of the Posse Comitatus Act, it now allows the military to take over police duties. That was the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act following the Civil War. The military was everywhere (after that war until 1878).
So now the military can come back onto the streets. They know that unrest is bubbling over everywhere. It’s happening in Romania, Slovenia, and around the world. The unemployment levels are hitting new highs. People are going into poverty and losing everything.
I hadn’t realized Posse Comitatus had been repealed. On December 31, 2011, Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) codifying indefinite military detention without charge or trial into law for the first time in American history. The ACLU has significant discussion of the ramifications.
Is that why Homeland Security and other agencies have been buying so much ammo? Is this why 2,700 light-armored tanks were purchased to go with their 1.6 billion bullet stockpile.
