Is This the Death of Posse Comitatus?

The Pentagon is pushing for the authority to post 400,000 troops on the streets of America for active patrol in the event of an “emergency”. (The President will arbitrarily get to decide what qualifies as an “emergency”).

This would violate the Posse Comitatus Act. Many state governors rightfully oppose the idea as the latest assault on states rights. The ACLU is on the correct side of this one:

Mike German, the ACLU’s national security policy counsel, expressed amazement “that the military would propose such a broad set of authorities and potentially undermine a 100-year-old prohibition against the military in domestic law enforcement with no public debate and seemingly little understanding of the threat to democracy.”

There is a dangerous trend here with the recent pushes for martial law. Notice that the push for martial law is always coming from those in power, not those who would be subject to it.

You Can Help Detect and Prevent “Terrorism”

The odds of someone winning big in the lottery and being struck dead by lightning in the same day are about as high as the odds of being killed by a terrorist.

But no one is allowed to doubt that the streets are just crawling with “terrorists”, so we get more laughable absurdity from the state that brought you the MIAC report:

Glorifying and Worshipping the Police State

Ah, yes. Homeland Security U.S.A. is the latest in mind-numbing “reality” television and it looks to be little more than propaganda for the state. Sit back, relax, and be acclimated to the incremental loss of your liberties in the comfort of your own home!

Just watch — all of these people in uniform are so nice and good and official looking! There is nothing to fear, we should give them more power to “do their jobs”. Pay no attention to the 20,000+ troops being stationed in America or the warrantless checkpoints because it’s all “for your safety” of course. Everything changed a few years ago (don’t you know?) — posse comitatus and the Bill of Rights are obsolete these days.
