Iowa National Guard Calls Off Civilian Exercises

leave a comment »

The Iowa National Guard was supposed to have civilian exercises where they were going to door to door asking questions in search of an “arms dealer”. Isn’t that the job of the ATF? Could this signal as a test as to the end of Posse Comitatus? It seems seems that BHO likes to run test balloons with everything. It’s a real bad idea to have the military do law enforcement work. Their rules of engagement are very different from law enforcement and our idea of civil rights do not exist on the battlefield, and should not. Read about it here. Who told you so?

Pentagon to Deploy 20,000 Troops by 2011

leave a comment »

The pentagon plans to deploy 20,000 troops by 2011 to help local authorities respond to a nuclear terror attack or other catastrophes. One, are they expecting something they are not telling us? Two, I grew sick of the color of the day when I lived in NY. Is the alert red, orange, yellow or green? Three, is this a pretext for something else? While on some level, I felt “comfort” with the troops deployed in Manhattan and around the city, I also felt that it would have been more effective for those that were legal to carry somewhere in NY to be able to carry in the 5 Boroughs. Unfortunately, the sfacimes that run NYC do not recognize pistol licenses from anywhere but NYC, but getting a license in NYC is impossible unless you are a friend of the mayor or pay exorbitant amounts of money. If you are Howard Stern, Donald Trump, Robert DeNiro, Harvey Keitel, Michael Bloomberg, or Joan Rivers, but I digress. I have to wonder how Obama will do this when there is Posse Comitatas. Bush tried to modify it and was beaten back. Hopefully this will not come to pass.
