At the risk of igniting a firestorm of accusations that I’m a radical right wing extremist bent on promoting conspiracy theory, consider the following and see what you think.

For months now stories have been leaking out regarding long range government planning. These stories have related to everything from marshal law to mass crowd control, not to mention HUGE purchases of ammunition by otherwise docile government entities. Perhaps, in and of themselves these things can be explained away. Maybe there is something there, maybe not and it’s all just folklore. But what if it isn’t. When you link just a few strings together some scary things pop out.

First, there are those pesky little reports that FEMA has identified and is maintaining hundreds of potential mass detention centers all over the country. That’s hard to believe until you see a map of actual locations per state. (Reference: ) If you bother to visit the link and read the story, pay particular attention to the portion that describes the ad for “Resettlement Specialists”.

For those who doubt such plans exist, may I suggest you also read up on the John Warner Defense Authorization Act which states in part:

The President may employ the armed forces… to… restore public order and enforce the laws of the United States when, as a result of a natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition… the President determines that… domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of maintaining public order… or [to] suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy if such… a condition… so hinders the execution of the laws… that any part or class of its people is deprived of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law… or opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws.

While you’re at it, you might also want to read up on the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act, since I doubt it’s widely covered in schools these days given the enlightened education system we live under. In doing so you may wonder if Posse Comitatus is in great conflict with the aforementioned John Warner Act. I do.

Essentially, Posse Comitatus prevents the Federal Government from using Federal military personnel to enforce state laws. The lines of distinction in terms of how these two Acts might actually apply in a modern setting are both unclear and potentially bothersome, particularly in light of a couple other developments that require closer examination. Not the least of which is Obama’s apparent per-occupation with purging the military of any leadership that demonstrates hesitancy when asked about confronting American citizens.
And since we are on the topic of purging let’s introduce one other story worth noting.

Just a couple of months or so ago Shane Harger, Police Chief of Jemez Springs, New Mexico was ordered to disband his entire police department. Why, because he attended the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) Convention. Or perhaps more specifically, because he and the other 38 men and women signed the Resolution of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association affirming their shared commitment to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America from enemies both foreign and domestic. (Reference: )

Now we come to the event that must occur for any or all of this to effectively take place, the disarmament of the American citizenry.

A quick look back in history reveals two stark patterns. One is that no successful move toward tyranny has ever occurred without first disarming the public. Consider that as you listen to the constant drum beat for more and more gun control in America as well as Obama’s recent willingness to “Go it alone” on gun control if congress will not act. It is an undeniable fact that every tyrant before Obama made similar statements. Amongst them are Hitler, Mussolini, and Joseph Stalin, to whom this one is credited:
“If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.”
Those that were disarmed and then trampled by those who did the disarming didn’t think they really meant it either.

Secondly there is the tendency for tyrannical powers to single out their political opposition, target them for harassment and recognize when brute force is required. If that is true one has to view the Obama administration’s effort to use the IRS against conservative groups as a possible precursor to other things. If it is now acceptable to use governmental agencies against specific political opposition how far a leap can it be to use brute force? And if it comes to that, might Obama have already learned that it is best to bring in outside muscle rather than rely on local law enforcement to do jobs they might find unfathomable, if not unconstitutional. Could it be that is why our government now believes it needs acts such as the John Warner Defense Authorization Act in place and so loosely written?

I hate to use an example as blatant as the events on Tiananmen Square, but I will. When the Chi-coms needed that nasty little affair addressed they didn’t do it with local cops, they brought in troops from a distant province. The Chi-Coms knew well that local cops might not be able to stomach driving tanks over their fellow citizens but the distant troops could, particularly after being fed a line of untrue propaganda on the way to the scene of the crime. Is the loose language within the John Warner Defense Authorization beyond being used as license to do the same here?

Perhaps these stories and events are unrelated and not worth of anything more than paranoid discussion, but what if they aren’t?

The risk is fairly substantial wouldn’t you say?
