I doubt that this will surprise too many disinfonauts, but the Washington Times has found a Pentagon directive describing President Obama’s plan to use military force against Americans – in America:

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…

    Is it really going to necessarily be for bamz’s administration? Or more likely for future administrations?

    • Of course, thats why Obama is setting up all these mass killings around merica, driving the media narrative and angry soccer moms in minivans so we cant shoot these drones from the sky .

      That’s always the problem isn’t it? Reading up on the McCarthy hearings, it was the climate created by rooting out fascist sympathizers in post-war America that allowed a monster like McCarthy to frighten people into submission. It’s worrying.

      Or maybe it’s foreshadowing the the lame duck is getting ready to twist the knife.

  3. Saying its Obama’s plan is taking away from the fact that he is just a pawn for the elite. Nice click bait wording though.

    Butbutbut the terrists will WIN! You don’t want the terrists to WIN, do you? Why do you hate America?

  5. Descending (slowly) onto an already heavily-laden camel’s back…?

  6. Agreed. Dozens of civilians could be killed with not much besides above average police presence in that area but if a few key politicians or one or two members of the board of directors of the Federal Reserve Bank or a Rothschild or other elite gets killed the country would probably be locked down under martial law.
