The Posse Comitatus Act, passed in 1878, 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.
But while we slept the Barack Hussein Obama signed another midnight executive order which seems to be aimed at undermining posse comitatus.
The order, innocuously named Establishment of the Council of Governors creates a body of 10 state governors directly appointed by Obama to review the involvement of the the “National Guard of the various States; homeland defense; civil support; synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States; and other matters of mutual interest pertaining to National Guard, homeland defense, and civil support activities.”
Not only is this a bureaucratic redundancy (pardon the redundancy), seeing as how the very same input could be obtained by the feds in a conference call with the National Association of Governors, it constitutes a threat to the Constitution and therefore all Americans—essentially what the democrat party is best known for.
One-third of Americans welcome Big Government into every facet of their lives, and upon reading this would brand me an hysteric or worse… a veteran just a few steps away from forming a militia; to which I say, “naw, it’s too early.”
Another third didn’t read beyond “Posse Comitatus Act” and went back to American Idol.
The rest of us in Real America love our country, but we sure as hell don’t trust our government.
But, what have ya done for me lately?
Three things immediately struck me last night as the news of the Haiti earthquake was reported.
First, Obama, who required three days to find something to say about the latest Muslim terrorist attack on his watch—the Christmas day bombing of Flight 253—but took only a half-hour to get knee-deep in the Haiti disaster.
Secondly, Haiti is the poorest country in the hemisphere, other than the voodoo that they do so well, so why do they have (had) a Presidential Palace?
Who says God doesn’t have a sense of humor?
The Marine Corps ran the island from 1915 to 1934 in orderly fashion, but since then, it’s been an unmitigated disaster of military coups and revolving door dictators; so much for billions of U.S. aid and propping up various incompetents and anti-communist dictators like François “Poppa Doc” Duvalier.
And thirdly, most governments in the world hate us and blame us for all ills imaginable, just like our current president.
But which country immediately poured massive cash, food, water, medical care and rescue teams in to Haiti? And after it’s all over and the Haitians get back to hating us, who will have spent the most to prop them up?
And that doesn’t even include the millions contributed by private, charitable and religious organizations.
Yeah, yeah… it’s who we are blah, blah, blah; but what if we sat out one of these disasters and simply said we’re going to take it any more… being the butt of everything despite shouldering the burden of the entire world?
Some singer named Wyclef Jean, a Haitian who immigrated to American (where else?) and founder of the Yele Haiti relief charity, said that aid needed to be deployed by the international community straight away.
"We're going to need the United States and the international community to react immediately," Jean told CNN.
See? “The United States, and the international community”.
First thing that comes to these asshats’ minds… America.
Old Glory is the only flag in the world that causes people to say a heartfelt “thank God”, when it comes marching over the horizon.
