The beginnings of Obama’s civilian security force that he wants to build?
It sure seems that way.
Sect 501: "there is established in the executive branch a National Defense Executive Reserve (NDER)"
Sect 501(b): "The Secretary of Homeland Security shall issue necessary guidance for the NDER program, including appropriate guidance for establishment, recruitment, training, monitoring, and activation of NDER units"
Sect 502: The head of each agency otherwise delegated functions under this order is delegated the authority of the President ... to employ persons of outstanding experience and ability without compensation...
Effective March 16 2012, Odinga could mobilize his stormtroopers, each Cabinet secretary having his/her own regiment, and has authorized conscription to fill the ranks.
DHS, TSA, SSA and NOAA have been among the agencies stockpiling ammunition. SSA alone has supplied 750 rounds per agent; a combat soldier downrange in Iraq had a basic load of 220 rounds (I know, because that WAS my basic load in Iraq).
The Leftists will not start kicking in doors right away; they know that The Sheep will voluntarily turn in all their guns, and snitch on their neighbors who don't.
“The beginnings of Obamas civilian security force that he wants to build?”
This is the thing that kills me, that no one has brought this up - especially since his big speech about how we have to do something even if it saves just one life; how we must stand up and say ‘ENOUGH’ as responsible gun owners.
Somehow it eluded everyone that “weapons that belong only in the theater of war” (or so sayeth the won) are somehow OK in a civilian security force that is as well equipped and trained as the military.
Civilians are by the very definition of the word - most assuredly not acting in a military capacity. Same goes for other agents of the government as they act in their official capacity...
Who/what is the civilian security force to be made up of, if not law abiding citizens? If they are to be as well equipped and trained as the military, then what weapons would they have if not the same/equivalent as military issue?
What just happened?!!! I mean... law abiding civilians are being lectured to about how they are not entitled to believe they should have the same advantage against a would be attacker or a violent mob as police or military would, yet some made from whole cloth “civilian security force” is elevated above it all or conveniently forgotten during the discussion.
Sorry... I just don’t get how the American public at large can buy this much bovine excrement, it tends to make me rant.
