This picture depicts U.S. Army soldiers from Ft. Rucker patrolling the downtown area of Samson, Alabama after a bloody shooting spree March 10, 2009. The soldiers appear to be standing stationary, as if they are guarding an impromptu checkpoint at an intersection. What upset me when I saw this picture is that it is against the Posse Comitatus Act for Army troops to patrol a civilian setting where they might be called upon to execute/enforce laws. If these soldiers were to stop anyone at this intersection, they would be enforcing laws, which is illegal.
And, God forbid, if they came under attack, they would be forced to fire back, using military arms against a civilian, an act which is truly forbidden under the Posse Comitatus Act.
Since the Posse Comitatus Act was gutted at the request of President Bush in 2006 and then reinstated by Congress in 2008, let us review this most important act and its recent history.
Originally Passed in 1878
"The Act was a response to, and subsequent prohibition of, the military occupation by U.S. Army troops of the former Confederate States during the ten years of Reconstruction (1867–1877) following the American Civil War (1861–1865) ... When the U.S. Representatives and Senators selected by the newly formed legislatures of the former Confederate States reached Washington, they set as their first priority the creation of a statute prohibiting a future President or Congress from directing by military order or federal legislation the re-imposition of federal troops."
"The original Posse Comitatus Act referred only to the United States Army. The Air Force was added in 1956, and the Navy and the Marine Corps have been included by a regulation of the Department of Defense ... This law is often mentioned when it appears that the Department of Defense is interfering in domestic disturbances." (Wikipedia Encyclopedia, Posse Comitatus)
Civilians are thus protected against their own soldiers using weapons of terrible destruction upon them. This act is one of the most important bulwarks against imposition of a military dictatorship in this country. It is no wonder, then, that the Illuminati has targeted this act for dissolution. President Bush actually persuaded Congress to virtually gut Posse Comitatus, using government inaction following Hurricane Katrina as the excuse.
"On September 26, 2006, President Bush urged Congress to consider revising federal laws so that the U.S. military could seize control immediately in the aftermath of a natural disaster, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. These changes were included in the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 (H.R. 5122), which was signed into law on Oct 17, 2006 ...." (Ibid.)
People wondered how President Bush could wait so many days after the Katrina devastation before he committed troops to aid the civilians devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Now, we have our answer, don't we? The Illuminati has always hated Posse Comitatus, so Bush waited for days to send troops in to help, pleading that the present legal system prevented him from acting as he would have liked to act. Congress obediently obliged by gutting Posse Comitatus by including a section within the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act of 2007 which dramatically increased the President's authority.
"H.R. 5122, also known as the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 was a bill passed in the United States Congress on September 29, 2006 and signed by President George W. Bush on October 17, 2006. H.R. 5122 includes ... Expansion of the President's power to declare martial law under revisions to the Insurrection Act, and take charge of United States National Guard troops without state governor authorization when public order has been lost and the state and its constituted authorities cannot enforce the law." (Wikipedia Encyclopedia, H.R. 5122)
But, Congress had second thoughts a year later.
"The changes described above were repealed in their entirety by HR 4986: National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008."
I was surprised when Congress repealed the dramatic increase in authority which it gave to the President in 2007. But, after seeing Federal soldiers guarding an intersection in Samson, Alabama, after the bloody shooting spree on March 10, 2009, I am convinced that the government has found a way to get around the prohibitions of the Posse Comitatus Act.
Alex Jones interviewed the Colonel in charge of these military forces in Ft. Rucker about how the decision was made to order the troops into the civilian emergency in Samson, Alabama. The Colonel simply said that he had called the mayor of Samson to offer his assistance should it become necessary. When the mayor said that he could use the help, the Federal soldiers were immediately dispatched.
Americans are now facing a double-edged sword aimed at the freedoms and Constitutional guarantees of every one of us.
Forced Gun Registration
1) On the one hand, we see efforts to force a thorough registration of all guns owned by American citizens. History warns us that registration of guns is always the first step in a government eventually seizing all guns, thus leading to the imposition of a dictatorship. Therefore, when the Obama Administration quickly introduced a long list of all the guns it wants to register, following the public mass murder in Samson, Alabama, that is a serious sign of the coming dictatorship.
Let us review that news story.
NEWS BRIEF: "Obama’s Gun Ban List Is Out", InfoWars, March 13, 2009
"Here it is, folks, and it is bad news. The framework for legislation is always laid, and the Democrats have the votes to pass anything they want to impose upon us. They really do not believe you need anything more than a brick to defend your home and family. Look at the list and see how many you own. Remember, it is registration, then confiscation ... the first step in establishing a dictatorship is to disarm the citizens."
Gun-ban list proposed
"Slipping below the radar (or under the short-term memory cap), the Democrats have already leaked a gun-ban list ... I have an outline of the Brady’s current plans and targets of opportunity. It’s horrific. They’re going after the courts, regulatory agencies, firearms dealers and statutes in an all out effort to restrict we the people. They’ve made little mention of criminals. Now more than ever, attention to the entire Bill of Rights is critical. Gun bans will impact our freedoms under search and seizure, due process, confiscated property, states’ rights, free speech, right to assemble and more, in addition to the Second Amendment. The Democrats current gun-ban-list proposal (final list will be worse):"
|Rifles (or copies or duplicates)||M1 Carbine||Sturm Ruger Mini-14|
|AR-15||Bushmaster XM15||Armalite M15|
|AR-10||Thompson 1927||Thompson M1|
|MAK90||NHM 90||NHM 91|
|SA 85||SA 93||VEPR|
|Olympic Arms PCR||AR70||Calico Liberty|
|Dragunov SVD Sniper Rifle or Dragunov SVU||Fabrique National FN/FAL||FN/LAR, or FNC|
|HK-94||HK-PSG-1||Thompson 1927 Commando|
|Kel-Tec Sub Rifle||Saiga||SAR-8|
|SAR-4800||SKS with detachable magazine||SLG 95|
|SLR 95 or 96||Steyr AU||Tavor|
|UZI||Galil and Uzi Sporter||Galil Sporter, or Galil Sniper Rifle ( Galatz )|
|Pistols (or copies or duplicates)||Calico M-110||MAC-10|
|MAC-11, or MPA3||Olympic Arms OA||TEC-9|
|TEC-DC9||TEC-22 Scorpion, or AB-10||Shotguns (or copies or duplicates)|
|Armscor 30 BG||SPAS 12 or LAW 12||Striker 12|
Lastly, Obama's gun ban list includes several huge general categories.
1) "Streetsweeper. Catch-all category (for anything missed or new designs"
2) "A semiautomatic pistol that has the ability to accept a
detachable magazine, and has:
(i) a second pistol grip,
(ii) a threaded barrel,
(iii) a barrel shroud or
(iv) can accept a detachable magazine outside of the pistol grip, and
(v) a semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10
3) "A semiautomatic shotgun with:
(i) a folding or telescoping stock,
(ii) a pistol grip (see definition below),
(iii) the ability to accept a detachable magazine or a fixed magazine capacity
of more than 5 rounds, and
(iv) a shotgun with a revolving cylinder"
4) "Frames or receivers for the above are included, along with conversion kits."
But, there is more!
"Attorney General gets carte blanche to ban guns at will: Under the proposal, the U.S. Attorney General can add any 'semiautomatic rifle or shotgun originally designed for military or law enforcement use, or a firearm based on the design of such a firearm, that is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, as determined by the Attorney General'.” (Ibid.)
President Obama's Attorney General, Eric Holder, has gone even further.
"Note that Obama’s pick for this office, Eric Holder, wrote a brief in the Heller case supporting the position that you have no right to have a working firearm in your own home." (Ibid.)
Lest you laugh at this provision against having a working firearm in your home, please consider that, in the aftermath of the horrific shooting in Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel, has proposed legislation which allows government officials to come into private homes on the pretext of ensuring gun safety!
NEWS BRIEF: "German Chancellor Merkel Calling for Raids on Homes of Registered Gun Owners", by Peter Neideck, Prison Planet, March 16, 2009
"Today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel demanded even tougher gun control measures relating to storage of firearms and ammunition in Germany. With an audacity that defies belief the former East German communist also called for unannounced raids on homes and offices of registered firearm owners. In an interview with the Deutschlandfunk Merkel said: 'We must do everything to prevent children’s access to firearms'.”
Of course, it makes no sense whatsoever to enable the German federal government to send soldiers and/or policemen into homes to ensure that children are being kept safe from the guns which parents own. I have not seen statistics showing that German children are at unusual risk from the firearms which their parents are storing in the home.
But, in a dictatorship, such a government right to enter homes unannounced comes in very handy. What an effective tool this law would be!
But, Merkel is not finished yet preying on public sentiment so quickly after the mass murder there.
"As a further consequence of the recent mass shooting in Germany Merkel wants citizens to be more alert and pay particular attention to young people.“
The author of this article then turns his subject to the prevalence of anti-depressant drugs in mass public shootings.
"If Merkel was so concerned about the children, why would she not call for a ban on prescription of antidepressants, such as Prozac or Xanax. All mass shootings, including the latest German tragedy, have been connected with pychotropic drugs. SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) are excessively prescribed to children and young people and cause violent and irrational behaviour in people. SSRIs are big business for big Pharma and for the politicians who are sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry. Who are you working for, Frau Merkel?"
This article then introduces a somber fact: Merkel is using this shooting tragedy to press for a global ban on firearms!
"Politicians like Merkel are now pressing further their global agenda to making private gun ownership a social taboo worldwide. Politicians and media are pushing for gun control and victim disarmament with slogans such as 'More guns — more ‘gun crime’” and out of Kingdom Britain: 'Tough on Knife Crime'. However, such correlation does not exist and facts prove that firearms left in the hands of law abiding citizen prevent crime."
Cutting Edge has repeatedly stated that, during the planned World War III which shall allow the Masonic Christ (Antichrist) to come to the world scene, deliberately instigated riots and terror attacks will occur in major cities of every country still electing their citizens. Leaders in each of these countries will use these riots and attacks as an excuse to dissolve the current elective government so they can install the dictatorship which they so covet. When Antichrist arrives on the world scene, all governments in the world will be dictatorial.
That is the plan: dictatorships throughout the entire world.
But, dictatorships cannot exist when citizens own a lot of guns -- or, to put it another way, when a lot of citizens own a lot of guns.
Therefore, current leaders must set the stage for gun seizure before the planned World War III breaks out. Registration is always the first step to gun seizure.
The best way to accomplish this goal is to so disgust the average citizen through public mass murders that they will allow -- or even demand -- that the government register all guns. Once the government knows where the guns are located, they can then create the plan which shall effectively seize them.
Eroding Prohibition Against Using Military Against Civilians
Now, let us examine the second major threat to our freedoms. At the same time, the government is planning to force a registration of all firearms, they are plotting to use the terrific firepower of our military against a now disarmed citizenry.
The real threat posed by these soldiers patrolling in Samson, Alabama, is that it took so little effort and time to get them there. The President did not have to order them in; the Defense Secretary did not have to sign their orders. All that it took for these soldiers to start patrolling in a civilian environment was a phone call from the Army Colonel on Ft. Rucker to the mayor of Samson!
This reality means that the provisions of the Posse Comitatus Act have been effectively stripped of power.
A dictatorship will occur when powerfully armed military can confront disarmed
civilians. We are facing this double-barreled threat, in my opinion. The planned
dictatorship is now inevitable and probably not too many years away.
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
