Some warn expansion of military involvement in domestic security could lead to “end of United States as a Republic”
Obama executive order that creates a council of state governors who
will work with the feds to expand military involvement in domestic
security has stoked fears that the administration is stepping up
preparations for martial law.
The order, which is entitled Establishment of the Council of Governors
(PDF), creates a body of ten state governors directly appointed by
Obama who will work with the federal government to help advance the
“synchronization and integration of State and Federal military
activities in the United States”.
governors will liaise with officials from Northcom, Homeland Security,
the National Guard as well as DoD officials from the Pentagon “in order
to strengthen further the partnership between the Federal Government
and State governments,” according to the executive order.
October 2008, Northcom, a Unified Combatant Command of the United
States military based out of Peterson AFB, Colorado Springs, was
assigned the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team returning
from Iraq. An alarming September 8 Army Times report which was later denied
after it sparked controversy stated that the troops would be used by
Northcom to deal with “civil unrest and crowd control” in the aftermath
of a national emergency.
Obama executive order states that governors will help advise the feds
on National Guard, homeland defense, and civil support activities.
fact that the order further blurs the lines between state and federal
power, as well as greasing the skids for more military involvement in
domestic affairs has stoked fears that Obama may be laying the
groundwork for his promised “national civilian security force”.
