Fort Bragg Troops Train for Domestic Emergency: “This Exercise Is About the Home Front”

Ostensibly, and on the surface, they are trained to “help out” with things like natural disasters, floods and hurricanes.

They are “ready” too for chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear hazards.

Slightly below the surface, these Fort Bragg Army engineers are also training — this time in Florida — to assist local authorities in the event of domestic disorder and potential chaos — prepared to quell civil unrest, riots, mass unrest or even the aftermath of terrorist attacks.

Scenarios which could all be really coming to America.

And that’s when the potential for martial law kicks in.

ABC11 out of North Carolina reports:

Early Friday morning, more than 300 20th Engineer Brigade soldiers prepped convoys. Over the next five days they will join more than 400 additional troops in an Emergency Deployment Readiness Exercise.

[…]

While the soldiers may be called on domestic or foreign disasters, this exercise is about the home front, and how to handle a situation that’s overwhelming to local and state officials.

“It’s absolutely essential to ensure trained and ready forces,” Gilberti said. “I don’t believe we’re never ‘not ready.’ You can never be ready enough.”

This domestic training, under the Emergency Deployment Readiness Exercise, is coinciding with a very unstable period of stock market collapse, economic distress, hard times for many ordinary Americans and the potential for much more yet to come.

Yeah, the "domestic emergency" that soetoro is planning to cause. Someone arrest that bastard!

FRANCE IS NOW GETTING READY TO DEAL WITH ISLAMIC UNREST . SOONER , RATHER THAN LATER , IT WILL HAPPEN HERE ALSO .

Just give them chocolate chip cookies and you will own their hearts and minds.

When they come to our door how an we tell them from the enemy?

Spot on Jim Coles, and thank you!

  Tell them " MOHAMMED ate PIG" and you will immediately get the drift as to who he or she is.

Idiotic, moronic drivel.

1. There is no mechanism for national or even regional martial law.

2. Only the Governor of a state may declare martial law. Under most state constitutions & their implementing legislation martial law may be declared only when specific criteria are met, although Governors may call out the Guard for a number of situations below the martial law threshold.

3. The process for a Governor to obtain Federal assistance in an emergency is rigorous and requires a request for specific assistance. FEMA is the executive agent for receiving the Governor's request for help and coordinates the Federal response.

4. Given the nature of the threats we face - natural or human caused - this kind of training is necessary ... nor is it new. These exercises began long before I came into the Army in 1973. I was even part of an active Army battalion that helped fight a big forest fire & relocate residents in New Mexico away from the fire. 

5. The Army will never turn on the people. They are the people. They were the people before joining & they return to the people when their term of service ends. Soldiers will defend themselves if fired upon but as a group they will refuse orders to subdue civilians or disarm them so long as we don't get stupid and shoot at them.

Yeah, watch out the pos potus has used his pen to sign an executive order giving him total control of food supplies and so much more in the event of any kind of disaster!

Frank ... I despise Obama, Progressivism, and what these scum are doing to or country ... make no mistake about that ...
But:
Comrade-Imam Obama's ExOrds are among the mist egregious of any President's Directives, Findings, & Executive orders but they're self-limiting since mist of them, and No. 11921, the one you referenced, are based on The Defense Production Act of 1950, last amended in 1987. The Act, located at 50 USC Appendix 2061, has stringent limitations & definitions for what constitutes the kinds if situations in which this and other ExOrds can kick in.
Given the serious situations/large riots we've had I think that Barry would have tried to flex his powers if it were ready to turn those powers on.
He's scum & the 13 power grab ExOrds he has signed are scary but are essentially hard to start in motion.

There IS a mechanism:   

The Constitutional Topics pages at the USConstitution.net site are presented to delve deeper into topics than can be provided on the Glossary Page or in the FAQ pages. This Topic Page concerns Martial Law. Martial law is not explicitly mentioned in the Constitution, but the suspension of habeas corpus is mentioned in Article 1, Section 9, and the activation of the militia in time of rebellion or invasion is mentioned in Article 1, Section 8. The Topic Page for Military Justice may also be of interest.

The sources for this topic are, primarily, The Living U.S. Constitution by Saul Padover and Jacob Landynski (Meridian, 1995); Constitutional Law: Cases and Commentary by Daniel Hall (Lawyer's Cooperative Publishing, 1997); and ex parte Milligan, 71 US 2.

Note: please note the spelling of "martial law." A common mistake is to spell it as "marshal law" or "marshall law." A "marshal" is a law enforcement officer of, for example, the U.S. Marshal Service. There is such a thing as a marshal, but no such thing as marshal law.

Even Abe Lincoln used martial law:  

On September 15, 1863 President Lincoln imposed Congressionally authorized martial law. The authorizing act allowed the President to suspend habeas corpus throughout the entire United States (which he had already done under his own authority on April 27, 1861).

The army will NEVER turn on the people?  This is NO LONGER the same army you were in.  ESPECIALLY when you add the fact that Obama wants to start letting illegals join our armed forced.  AND they're doing all kinds of military training with Chinese, Russian, and other troops.  And let's not forget.....Obama would LOVE to bring the UN troops in here to take our guns.  

The army will NEVER turn on the people?  HOW MANY people after Katrina had their doors knocked down and the army took their weapons away from them?

Throughout United States history are several examples of the imposition of martial law, aside from that during the Civil War.

There have been many instances of the use of the military within the borders of the United States, such as during the Whiskey Rebellion and in the South during the civil rights crises, but these acts are not tantamount to a declaration of martial law. The distinction must be made as clear as that between martial law and military justice: deployment of troops does not necessarily mean that the civil courts cannot function, and that is one of the keys, as the Supreme Court noted, to martial law.[citation needed]

The American Revolution[edit]

As a result of the Boston Tea PartyParliament passed the Massachusetts Government Act, one of the Intolerable Acts, which suppressed town meetings and assemblies, and imposed appointed government, tantamount to martial law.[23][24][25]

New Orleans, Louisiana in the War of 1812[edit]

During the War of 1812US General Andrew Jackson imposed martial law in New OrleansLouisiana before repulsing the British in the Battle of New Orleans.[26][27][28] Martial law was also imposed in a four-mile radius around the vicinity. When word came of the end of the war, Jackson maintained martial law, contending that he had not gotten official word of the peace. A judge demanded habeas corpus for a man arrested for sedition. Rather than comply with the writ, Jackson had the judge arrested.

Ex parte Milligan[edit]

On September 15, 1863 President Lincoln imposed Congressionally authorized martial law.[29] The authorizing act allowed the President to suspend habeas corpus throughout the entire United States (which he had already done under his own authority on April 27, 1861). Lincoln imposed the suspension on "prisoners of war, spies, or aiders and abettors of the enemy," as well as on other classes of people, such as draft dodgers. The President's proclamation was challenged in Ex parte Milligan, 71 US 2 [1866]. The Supreme Court ruled that Lincoln's imposition of martial law (by way of suspension of habeas corpus) was unconstitutional in areas where the local courts were still in session.

The Great Chicago Fire[edit]

In response to the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, Chicago mayor Roswell B. Mason declared a state of martial law and placed General Philip Sheridan in charge of the city on October 9, 1871. After the fire was extinguished, there were no widespread disturbances and martial law was lifted within a few days.[30]

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, 1892[edit]

In 1892, in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, striking mine workers blew up a mill and shot at strike-breaking workers. The explosion leveled a four-story building and killed one person. The governor declared martial law. At the same time, a request was made for federal troops to back guardsmen. Over 600 people were arrested. The list was whittled down to two dozen ringleaders who were tried in military court. While in prison, the mine workers formed a new union, the Western Federation of Miners.

San Francisco earthquake of 1906[edit]

Following the earthquake of 1906, the troops stationed in the Presidio were pressed into martial law service. Guards were posted throughout the city, and all dynamite was confiscated. The dynamite was used to destroy buildings in the path of fires, to prevent the fires from spreading.

Colorado Coalfield War[edit]

In 1914, imposition of martial law climaxed the so-called Colorado Coalfield War. Dating back decades, the conflicts came to a head in Ludlow, Colorado in 1913. The Colorado National Guard was called in to quell the strikers. For a time, the peace was kept, but it is reported that the make-up of the Guard stationed at the mines began to shift from impartial normal troops to companies of loyal mine guards. Clashes increased and the proclamation of martial law was made by the governor, eventually resulting in the Ludlow MassacrePresident Wilson sent in federal troops, eventually ending the violence.

West Virginia Coal Wars[edit]

During the events of the West Virginia Coal Wars (1920-1921), martial law was declared on the state of West Virginia. At the behest of Governor Cornwell, federal troops had been dispatched to Mingo County to deal with the striking miners. The army officer in charge acted, ostensibly, under the Suspension Clause of Article I of the United States Constitution (selectively; accounts show that he only jailed union miners), and did not allow assembly of any kind. If his soldiers found any union miners, they immediately took them and imprisoned them. The jails filled up so quickly that he had to release miners. As it went, miners were arrested, jailed, and released without any sort of trial. After a time, when the trial of Sid Hatfield began; the military occupation and "veritable military dictatorship" (Governor Cornwell) of the army officer ended. Many of the miners were not released from jail. It was only the first of three times that federal troops would be called to quiet the miners in the West Virginia Mine War.[citation needed]

Tulsa Race Riot[edit]

In 1921, during the Tulsa race riot, the Oklahoma National Guard declared martial law.

San Francisco, California, 1934[edit]

In 1934, California Governor Frank Merriam placed the docks of San Francisco under martial law, citing "riots and tumult" resulting from a dock worker's strike. The Governor threatened to place the entire city under martial law. The National Guard was called in to open the docks, and a city-wide institution of martial law was averted when goods began to flow. The guardsmen were empowered to make arrests and to then try detainees or turn them over to the civil courts.

The Territory of Hawaii[edit]

During World War II (1939 to 1945) what is now the State of Hawaii was held under martial law from December 7, 1941 to October 24, 1944, following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.[31] Many Hawaiians were, and are, of Japanese descent, and the loyalty of these people was called into question. After the war, the federal judge for the islands condemned the conduct of martial law, saying, "Gov. Poindexter declared lawfully martial law but the Army went beyond the governor and set up that which was lawful only in conquered enemy territory namely, military government which is not bound by the Constitution. And they ... threw the Constitution into the discard and set up a military dictatorship."

Freedom Riders[edit]

On May 21, 1961, Governor Patterson of Alabama declared martial law "as a result of outside agitators coming into Alabama to violate our laws and customs" which has led to "outbreaks of lawlessness and mob action."

Hurricane Katrina[edit]

On August 31, 2005, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin declared martial law in the city, and reassigned 1500 New Orleans police officers from search and rescue missions to halt widespread looting. This declaration of martial law was only one of a number of steps taken by Nagin in an attempt to adequately counteract the catastrophic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina—including the forced removals of residents from their homes, and the allocation of $60 billion in disaster relief from the U.S. Congress. The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina created numerous issues for civic authorities and civil rights to address, including an overhaul of the city'scriminal justice system.[32]

And NAGIN personally made 0ut handsomely on the $60 Billion. 

Do you know how much 60 Billion is... if they divided up the money among the individuals in New Orleans and surrounding communities every person would have gotten 500K in cash... So why would anyone be complaining... US Taxpayers handed them a boondoggle bonus, for begin foolish enough to build and live in an area subject to repeated Hurricanes.  Some of the refugees from this natural disaster were living off US Taxpayers  more than 2yrs latter.

ALERT ALERT

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Rep. Mark Walker   RepMarkWalker

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592 

Noah Feldman @NoahRFeldman

Trump's wiretap tweets raise risk of impeachment http://bv.ms/2mY1ueX  via @BV

Rep. Mark Walker   RepMarkWalker
 

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
