There is no way that ANYONE can think that this is a good idea. How anyone could possibly vote for this and call themselves an American is beyond me. If you believe in any sort of freedom, well this bill is spitting, pissing and shitting all over you and the constitution. Welcome to the *NEW* United States of Offshore Bankers.
Allows the Secretary of Defense to authorize a Department of Defense (DOD) law enforcement officer to: (1) execute and serve a warrant or other process; (2) make an arrest without a warrant for any offense committed in the presence of the officer, or for any felony if the officer has probable cause to believe that the person arrested has committed or is committing the felony; and (3) carry firearms.
Read that again. Now read it one more time. This goes against fundamental US law, specifically the Posse Comitatus Act. To refresh your memory, that is :
The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385) passed on June 18, 1878 after the end of Reconstruction, with the intention (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) of substantially limiting the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement.
The statute generally prohibits federal military personnel and units of the National Guard under federal authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the Constitution or Congress. The Coast Guard is exempt from the Act during peacetime.
At first I didn’t put things together, then I read a few articles related to this and I can see where this is going. Take into account Obama’s Civilian Security Force that he’s promised in the past, this bill would allow the government and Obama (Hitler) Youth more latitude.
Both H.R. 675 and the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce directive will establish civilian “soft power” under the direction of the Pentagon. Obama is now actively working to create a paramilitary “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the military. In order to skirt Posse Comitatus, Obama’s paramilitary brownshirts will be organized and run out of the Office of Personnel Management with orders coming from the Pentagon.
