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.
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.
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
Re: Internment / Resettlement: Personally, I believe we have a major pole shift underway, little protection from the magnetosphere and UVC incoming which will fry all of us. But in terms of internment, at the end of the day – when all is said and done, if their intent and ability is to reduce population any way they can, then I wouldn’t want to live on this planet anyway. The best advice I could give anyone in that situation is just not to allow them to put you “on the bus” at any cost.
And so it begins in Ferguson, Mo. To my horror, cops playing military with all that “cool” military gear and ammo. Heck, I’d prefer the actual military to cops playing. The average cop is lucky to have graduated 8th grade. It is like giving grown-up weapons and gear to kids who want to play soldier. Holy cows! What could possibly go wrong!
Yes, to all of it.
Here in the UK our PM has just spent billions of weaponry and DRONES! Now why would we want or even need drones? We have the Storm Troopers – we saw them during the demos in London. Our Mayor of London has just decided he would like water cannons to quell the Londoners no less.
Something is definitely going on and they are expecting us not to like it!
Robert is right-on!
I suspect the event that is highest on the radar is the one that is unavoidable and not discussed. It is the eventual meltdown of financial systems.It is not the 17.5 trillion that is discussed. It is $218+ trillion. You see we have something called unfunded liabilities. Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and somewhere in the neighborhood of $95 trillion in derivatives that are only worth about $15 trillion. Even in our dreams we cannot avoid what is coming. Nobody wants to talk about it because there is no good answer. It unfortunately is not far off. I challenge anyone to disprove this.
False flag nuclear bomb ought to do it.
It’s already begun, I am a Targeted Individual with satellites, Electromagnetic Weapons aka zapped. This is no joke
Time to wake up…
Why this clown is still in office after millions demanding impeachment is beyond me…..
The shadow government desperately needs to be beheaded.
So the government causes all of the unrest..they expect retaliation so they will use military force against their own citizens for disagreeing with them. That is psychopathic for sure. Its all about greed & control of the unknown. They want to stron garm people into conforming so they have no choice but death for not agreeing. Wow..that is not freedom. That is Communism at its finest.
Well, I realized the D. of D. Was going to take away what US Citizens used to know as FREEDOM when I saw “9/11”. At least I can say, I was alive when I believed in being a US Citizen as being the symbol of living in a free country. At least I can say it was so at one point but, like many dreams, didn’t last.
That is the same they do with the chemtrails, they used to use it against the enemy as a weapon of mass destruction, now they use it against us. They always take it a step further, now they have been getting away with it.
