    Inside the Ring: Memo Outlines Obama’s Plan to Use the Military Against Citizens

    Pentagon's directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities"

    A 2010 Pentagon directive on military support to civilian authorities details what critics say is a troubling policy that envisions the Obama administration’s potential use of military force against Americans.

    The directive contains noncontroversial provisions on support to civilian fire and emergency services, special events and the domestic use of the Army Corps of Engineers.

    The troubling aspect of the directive outlines presidential authority for the use of military arms and forces, including unarmed drones, in operations against domestic unrest.

    “This appears to be the latest step in the administration’s decision to use force within the United States against its citizens,” said a defense official opposed to the directive.

    Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” was issued Dec. 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.”

    “Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances unless specifically authorized by the president in accordance with applicable law or permitted under emergency authority,” the directive states.

    “In these circumstances, those federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the president is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances” under two conditions.

    The conditions include military support needed “to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order.” A second use is when federal, state and local authorities “are unable or decline to provide adequate protection for federal property or federal governmental functions.”

    “Federal action, including the use of federal military forces, is authorized when necessary to protect the federal property or functions,” the directive states.

    Military assistance can include loans of arms, ammunition, vessels and aircraft. The directive states clearly that it is for engaging civilians during times of unrest.

    A U.S. official said the Obama administration considered but rejected deploying military force under the directive during the recent standoff with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his armed supporters.

    Mr. Bundy is engaged in a legal battle with the federal Bureau of Land Management over unpaid grazing fees. Along with a group of protesters, Mr. Bundy in April confronted federal and local authorities in a standoff that ended when the authorities backed down.

    The Pentagon directive authorizes the secretary of defense to approve the use of unarmed drones in domestic unrest. But it bans the use of missile-firing unmanned aircraft.

    “Use of armed [unmanned aircraft systems] is not authorized,” the directive says.

    The directive was signed by then-Deputy Defense Secretary William J. Lynn. A copy can be found on the Pentagon website: http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/c...df/302518p.pdf

    and i but "not authorized" and " drone flights" somehow don't go together with this administration.

    plenty of "not authorized" actions by the BATF,IRS, state dep, DHS,NAS,CIA and the like so this promise has a value of a rat turd.

    Report: Federal Directive Authorizes Military To Engage Civilians: “To Quell Large-scale, Unexpected Civil Disturbances”



    For years the government has been stockpiling weapons, ammunition, riot gear and armored vehicles. Military personnel have been training in tandem with federal and local police using everything from fully armed helicopters to tanks across America’s major cities in what appears to be a hybridization of domestic law enforcement agencies. Yet, questions about these shadowy activities have been dismissed by media and public officials as nothing more than training designed to help our country’s fight against terrorism at home and abroad.

    But while the majority of Americans either have no clue this is happening or simply prefer to keep their heads in the sand, a new report from the Washington Times via Infowars suggests otherwise.

    The armaments, training and anti-terror directives are not for use against terrorists in some far-off war zone like Afghanistan, but rather, are designed for American citizens right here at home.

    Yes, you are the target.

    The troubling aspect of the directive outlines presidential authority for the use of military arms and forces, including unarmed drones, in operations against domestic unrest.

    “This appears to be the latest step in the administration’s decision to use force within the United States against its citizens,” said a defense official opposed to the directive.

    The conditions include military support needed “to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order.” A second use is when federal, state and local authorities “are unable or decline to provide adequate protection for federal property or federal governmental functions.”

    Military assistance can include loans of arms, ammunition, vessels and aircraft. The directive states clearly that it is for engaging civilians during times of unrest.
    This is not some conspiracy theory or sensationalist view of government operations. This is an actual military directive to be executed under orders from the President of the United States.

    The tens of of billions of dollars spent on ensuring that these directives are successful once implemented indicate, in no uncertain terms, that the government is planning on this actually happening at some point in the future. Otherwise, why spend the time, money and effort?

    This latest revelation shows that the U.S. government has a plan for quelling widespread civil unrest. And, earlier this year Dave Hodges shed light on another important aspect of these directives: what to do with those civilians who aren’t killed when the military rises up against Americans:

    There are two terms which should concern you, namely, Internment and Resettlement (I/R). As if this needs any further elaboration, the two terms simply mean that you will be snatched from your home and sent to a detention camp for an undetermined period of time and treated in a manner which will not be defined by any law.

    The Authorities Practice Targeting Second Amendment Supporters

    There exists solid evidence that our illegitimate government, hijacked by the banksters, possesses a detailed plan to mass arrest Americans and it has moved from the pages of government documents and it is actually being practiced by authorities on American soil.

    You Have Been Targeted for Internment & Resettlement (via The Common Sense Show)
    For the last decade numerous elements within the U.S. government have been war-gaming scenarios that include everything from large scale economic breakdown to massive natural catastrophes in anticipation of a major event that would lead to widespread civil unrest, violence and the disappearance of law and order.

    Following these simulations they have begun implement directives such as the one cited above.

    It’s as if they know it is coming.

    Given the evidence, every individual in America should prepare for the worst and assume it is coming too.

    And every single one of those soldiers is a brainless automaton who'll go out and shoot civilians on order?

    Really?

    Obama Considered Using Military Force against Cliven Bundy Supporters

    freedomoutpost.com / By Tim Brown / June 3, 2014

    Last week, the Washington Times mentioned the fact that the Obama administration seriously considered using military force against Cliven Bundy and his supporters during their standoff back in April. This should come as no surprise after we reported that there was word that the Defense Department had approved a drone strike.

    Apparently, the Obama administration considered a strike on protesters, exercising their First Amendment rights, which ironically, are supposed to be protected by the same administration under the US Constitution.

    The Times reported:

    A U.S. official said the Obama administration considered but rejected deploying military force under the directive during the recent standoff with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his armed supporters.

    Mr. Bundy is engaged in a legal battle with the federal Bureau of Land Management over unpaid grazing fees. Along with a group of protesters, Mr. Bundy in April confronted federal and local authorities in a standoff that ended when the authorities backed down.

    Probably. But all it takes is one or a couple. Then we have 'Contagious Fire'. Even the asshats that are just along for the ride are putting holes in people and don't even know why.
    Google 'Amadou Diallo'

    We are at war. Whether it's the BoyScouts, the local Sheriff or the freakin Girines, if they're in a uniform they are the enemy UNTIL THEY PROVE DIFFERENT.
    'They' did this. Not me.

    Well interesting comments in both directions on the Military turning on citizens. Having been in a situation where they were going to use us to quell Negro riots back in 1970, we sat and were on standby. Ft. Carson Colorado.
    Now I am looking around, to my left, right hell all over the field. Black dudes who had a choice of jail or going in the Military. Yes those stories of years ago are true. Now not talking serious crimes, but if one got in front of the Judge, they would often give an ultimatum. Jail or the Military? Hmmm let me think about this, a pay check 3 hots and a cot, or 3 hots and a cot and no paycheck or fresh air. O.K. Judge where do I sign up?
    Turned a lot of guys lives around for the better. Those days are long gone. Now they even want you to have good credit.
    Bet money Nappie is burning the midnight oil on whether the Military would ever turn on civilians. Oh riot control and a show of force I would guess yes? But the Military is not real real happy with this S.O.B. and his administration these days. They might just point those weapons in a direction they will not be to happy with?

    i don't know if todays military could be considered the same military system that i left back in 04. it was no great shakes back then--but now???

    all the top brass has been replaced, the officer core has been through a communist purge since 08, the military academies have had their traditionilist people replaced by leftists and socialist leaning people of a gender non-specific origins.

    i am hoping that our own armed forces will balk at the order to kill/bomb its own citizens. however the entire core of the military/government system that i knew has rotted out , they don't train officers or NCOs to think on their own anymore.
    the actions of the federal government does look like the administration sees its own citizens as some kind of "threat" to the government--

    it seems the government has forgot IT works for the people --not the other way around.


    we are just a chip implant away from "robot soldiers" and the DOD has spent billions on the program. one has to ask--why does the politicians need so much CONTROL over the soldiers?

    Why do they need control j4, because people want to contain and control what they fear. Nappy's recent purge of our Military leadership was akin to Stalin's. Only Stalin lined his hero Generals up after WWII and shot them, he wanted no competition. Nappy just had the CIA find crap on our Military leaders and can them. Either way their gone.
    Now replaced by ass kissing left wing homo Officers at the top. No more Chesty Pullers, Ray Davis's, Patton? fer get about it. Oh hell yeah Nappy had plans to destroy not only America as we knew it, but the Military had to be purged. He tried to get the guns, that did not go over so good so he just gave his boys in Federal positions more guns and ammo.
    He who has the most guns and ammo rules, most often not all the time but it is a good edge to have. We have ex Military and Vets here, think? They just gave you orders to go too the Bundy ranch and if the Cowboys, women and children did not disperse, open fire. What would you do?
    Bet your ass I would cap the first Officer who gave the order and I aint jokin. I was in the Army and I aint shooting no Americans who are speaking their mind, I don't give a F#$K what color they are. We served for their right to protest. If they mass and attack the Black House I may just watch the show.
