Obama: Train my Gestapo in Afghanistan. U.S. Next?

Much of the thuggery used in the United States today was experienced tried out outside the U.S. first.  The use sound cannons is one example of those.  Monitoring large areas with drones and blowing up innocent people is another example.  But a third a most important is the U.S. president’s Gestapo armed forces.  Department of Defense Directive 1404.10, dated January 23, 2009, set up a “Civilian Expeditionary Workforce” that would “be organized, trained, cleared, equipped, and ready to deploy in support of combat operations by the military; contingencies; emergency operations; humanitarian missions; disaster relief; drug interdiction; and stability operations

Of course Obama does not identify this paramilitary force as a Gestapo. He prefers to call it a civilian military force.

His pretext to form and finance his dreamed army is that the U.S. Army is overworked due to the multiple conflicts the country is involved in. He said on Wednesday that U.S. soldiers could use the assistance of a civilian workforce to help in relief efforts in Afghanistan. Speaking in Wisconsin, the president said it was a great idea to send his Gestapo force to help soldiers to carry out tasks such as building infrastructure.

What good is a military force if it cannot be trained properly in real life scenarios? Obviously, that kind of training cannot be achieved in the US. At least for now. So, Obama finds it correct to send civilians with weapons to combat zones to aid the U.S. Military. “So what I’m trying to say is, don’t put all the burden on the military.  Make sure that we’ve got a civilian expeditionary force,” said the president. He added that the civilian force would be in charge of building schools, bridges and roads in regions labeled by the military as safe. Unless news reports are wrong, the only moderately safe area is Afghanistan’s ‘green zone’. As the news media have reported, attacks and violence in that country have increased. Not even the payoffs given by the U.S. with tax payer money have calmed down the attacks. Not even the fact that the U.S. is promoting the cultivation of opium and all the corruption that arises from it has made it easier to stabilize a country taken over by criminals; many who work with the U.S. Military.

A Department of Defense directive, Directive 1404.10, dated January 23, 2009, set up a “Civilian Expeditionary Workforce” created to, trained, cleared, equipped, and ready to deploy in support of combat operations by the military; contingencies; emergency operations; humanitarian missions; disaster relief; restoration of order; drug interdiction; and stability operations.” If the U.S. Army is unable to bring stability, relief, order or any other kind of positive results to Afghanistan, how can the president think a civilian force will be able to build homes and bridges?

Obama’ s intention is not to facilitate the work of the military in Afghanistan. He wants to extend the U.S. occupation there. He wants to get innocent American civilians killed in a country where not even the thoroughly trained, most powerful military in the world can deal with the violence and resistance. He wants to train his Gestapo force in Afghanistan so it can later come to the U.S. and treat the citizens with the same hatred and disrespect as they will have to treat Afghan rebels and criminals. Sending a civilian force to Afghanistan is a way to further desensitize armed forces to commit in the United States the same crimes they commit there. What Obama wants is not to let a crisis go to waste.

Obama first expressed his idea of forming a military force during the campaign for his presidential run. He connected it to what he called national service, which Rahm Emanuel later detailed as a mandatory recruitment of civilians. “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set.” In other words, we will turn the country into a complete surveillance state, whereby citizens will rat on each other for the benefit of the centralized government he would head. “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” Given the fact the military has had problems recruiting, what a better idea than to force citizens to serve in the military so they can easily be shipped abroad into combat zones? Or maybe within the United States, where they will become an unofficial Gestapo force for the Führer? It’s been a year and a half since Obama took office and I haven’t seen any news of any civilian security force aiding poor neighborhoods, hurricane or tornado victims or down in the gulf coast helping to clean the disaster caused by Obama’s close friends at BP. Why not? Is it not what such force is supposed to be doing? Is their training not finished yet? “…a Veterans Corps to assist veterans at hospitals, nursing homes and homeless shelters; and a Homeland Security Corps to help communities plan, prepare for and respond to emergencies.” Is it not the Gulf Oil Spill an Emergency?

If heavily armed civilians in power trips is not a cause of concern for anyone, I have to say they deserve the Fascism they will get. The civilian security force is not an example of “soft power” as Defense Secretary Robert Gates called them. Remember Obama’s statement? “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” To my colleagues at the Raw Story, it is time you stopped laughing and start acting like the responsible media outlet you want to become. Centralized power has never and will never result in better living conditions. Ask history. Ask the Chinese, the Jews and the Muslims.

By the way, since when is a Republic governed with military directives?

One Response to Obama: Train my Gestapo in Afghanistan. U.S. Next?

  1. Ross Wolf says:

    Without Guns How would Americans Resist An Unconstitutional U.S. Government Takeover?

    Obama never clarified what he meant when he stated in July 2008: “We cannot continue to rely on our military to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”

    Obama’s recently expanded Veterans and other Corps and Obamacare provisions buried in the health bill mandated a 6,000-man army on U.S. Soil; all the aforementioned changes including the new army, are so broadly defined they could subsequently include most any function of government. Hitler’s Germany in the 1930’s during hard economic times, established “Civilian Volunteer Patrols” for the purported purpose of helping Citizens and to protect the Homeland. But shortly after Hitler’s patrols were established, the civilian volunteers were transformed into a neighborhood political enforcement and informant arm” of the Nazi Party working with Hitler’s private secret Police, the Gestapo. During this period, years before the Gestapo was consolidated with the German Government, the Gestapo arrested Citizens and confiscated private property with no legal authority. Gestapo is the contraction of Geheime Staatspolizei for “Secret State Police.”

    In 1934 the Gestapo was placed under SS leader Heinrich Himmler Chief of German Police. Then in 1939 all German Police agencies were put under the control of the “Reich Main Security Office” the equivalent of U.S. Homeland Security.

    It will be interesting to see if Obama intends to use the new Obamacare 6,000-man army on U.S. Soil in violation of the Constitution.
    Should it be expected U.S. private mercenary companies now paid extremely well by U.S. Government to provide security in Iraq, might attempt to secure contracts from the Obama Government to provide security in U.S. Cities, should America’s recession worsen causing crime and riots like those seen in Greece?

    There appears to be nothing to stop U.S. Government deploying “American Citizens that are mercenaries” on U.S. soil to assist regular police or to accompany a “National Police Stabilization Force” alleged suggested in a recent NGO Rand Corporation Report provided the U.S. Army. The suggested “National Police Stabilization Force” would appear controlled by the Feds and might include in its ranks with federal police, local and state law enforcement. What would happen to State Rights and what Laws and Jurisdiction would be used to prosecute state Citizens arrested by a National Police Stabilization Force? Could this proposed National Police Stabilization Force involve Obama’s new 6,000-man army? A National Police Force could potentially be sent by Obama into any State with the approval of its governor, against the wishes of its Citizens? To clarify the Rand Corporation report visit:

    Several U.S. private security companies now work with U.S. law enforcement agencies in America under federal quasi-government contracts, sharing information, locate for arrest individuals and share with government assets they cause to be forfeited from U.S. Citizens. In retrospect, Hitler created the Gestapo a secret “Private police organization that worked closely with German police to arrest and eliminate anyone that disagreed with the Nazi Government and to seize huge amounts of property from German Citizens.

    Should the Obama Government contract private mercenaries on American soil; deploy in America Obama’s new 6,000-man army or create his proposed “civilian national security force” or similar force; it should be expected that any of these forces during a declared emergency might last years, would discard your Constitutional rights including the Fourth Amendments, violate your private records and seize your arms. After the Nazi Government declared a State emergency against the Communists in 1933, Nazi officials proceeded without warrants to search Germans and their homes, confiscate their private arms, imprison Germans Citizens without cause and confiscate their property; Hitler’s volunteer corps often moved into confiscated homes.
