Army on Alert Against TEA Party & Other “Extremists”

Please scroll down for an Update on this post.

We’ve had forewarnings, beginning with the leaked memo last year from Janet Napolitano’s Dept of Homeland Security to the most recent evil report by the Anti-Defamation League. Everything we’ve been saying and fearing is coming true.

At Obama’s command, the U.S. Army has been placed on “alert” against domestic ”terrorist” threats from local militias, “anti-government extremists,” and TEA Parties — the very same TEA Parties that police describe as “remarkably peaceful.” A military exercise is underway at Ft. Knox and local detention centers are being readied for mass arrests.

All I have to say to that is Obama the Punk had better get lots and lots of “local detention centers” ready ’cause they’ll have to make room for MILLIONS of us!
To quote Fellowship member May: “What do you think, all you mighty military brass — that we’re going to beat someone to death with teabags? Maybe we’ll attack you with our marking pens or our flimsy oaktag signs? How does it feel to take such insane orders from the Asshole-in-Chief?”

Army Preps for Tea Party ‘Terrorists”

We call on the U.S. military to stand with the People. Don't be Sgt. Schultzes!

By Mark Alexander – Patriot Post – April 29, 2010
“The duty imposed upon [the president] to take care, that the laws be faithfully executed, follows out the strong injunctions of his oath of office, that he will ‘preserve, protect, and defend the constitution.’ The great object of the executive department is to accomplish this purpose; and without it, be the form of government whatever it may, it will be utterly worthless for offence, or defence; for the redress of grievances, or the protection of rights; for the happiness, or good order, or safety of the people.” –Justice Joseph Story.
A few months back, the commander in chief or our Armed Forces, that erstwhile community organizer Barack Hussein Obama, denigrated a large cross section of Americans who identify with the Tea Party movement — those who advocate for Essential Liberty and Rule of Law. Obama identified them as malcontents, “waving their little tea bags.” Since then, the Obama administration and their Leftmedia sycophants have endeavored to characterize Tea Party attendees as rude, radical, racist, redneck, enemies of the state.
In fact, Americans who attend Tea Party rallies are from all walks of life, as noted in the Patriot Declaration, Patriots who are peacefully and constitutionally petitioning their government for redress. As I noted in my tax-day essay, Tea Parties are “not a call for revolution but for restoration — a call to undertake whatever measures are dictated by prudence and necessity to restore constitutional Rule of Law.”
However, Obama’s words do have consequences.
This week, I was contacted by a number of military personnel, enlisted and officer ranks, who expressed concern about a military exercise underway at Ft. Knox, the U.S. Bullion Depository. As with most such exercises, the Ft. Knox alert occurred in stages, as if real time intelligence was being provided at various intervals.
The first intel advisory was issued on Friday, 23 April 2010, and identifies the terrorist threat adversaries as “Local Militia Groups / Anti-Government Protesters / TEA Party.”
You read that right: “TEA Party”!
The alert states that plans for the demonstration may have been interrupted by “Federal and local law enforcement” raids on a “White Supremacists Organization,” but “TEA Party organizers have stated that they will protest at the Gold Vault at a future date.” Further, the intel advisory states, “Anti-Government – Health Care Protesters have stated that they would join the TEA Party as a sign of solidarity.”
In accordance with the exercise, Ft. Knox post security is placed on high alert because, “these groups are armed, have combative training and some are former Military Snipers. Some may have explosives training/experience,” and “a rally at their compound / training area is scheduled.”
Another intel update was issued on Monday, 26 April 2010, noting that the “rally at the Militia compound occurred,” and “Viable threats … have been made.” The intel on the rally notes, “Many members were extremely agitated at what they referred to as Government intervention and over taxation in their lives. Alcohol use ‘fanned the flames.’ Many military grade firearms were openly carried. An ad hoc ‘shoot the government agent’ event was held with prizes (alcohol) given for the best shot placement.” The report states further, “Components of bomb making are reported to have been on the site. Some members have criminal records relating to explosive and weapons violations.”
In response to the “immediate threat,” the exercise stipulates, “local detention centers are being made ready for mass arrests.” Both the “QRF I and QRF II” are placed on two hour recall, and the “5-15 CAV” was ordered to “draw weapons from holder and store in most available arms room,” and “coordinate with MASA for immediate ammunition draw; have equipment readied for immediate use, i.e. vehicles staged and loaded IAW 5-15 CAV SOP; LMR’s charged.” QRF refers to Quick Reaction Force. QRF I is the 16th Cavalry Regiment. QRF II is the 194th Armored Brigade.
The 26 April order gives specific instructions for the 5-15 CAV (a 16th Cavalry battalion) to have weapons, ammo, vehicles and communications at ready, and it places the other 2,200 members of the units on two-hour recall. In other words, these orders are to gear up for defending Ft. Knox against Tea Party folks and their co-conspirators who oppose nationalization of our health care sector.
Now, for almost 30 years I have participated in the development and implementation of small and large scale military exercises within the U.S. and around the world.
Such exercises are critical to the readiness of our forces, and the standard for the real time intel reports in these drills requires thinly veiled references to assets of existing or collateral threat vectors such as communist regimes such as China and real terrorist networks such as al-Qa’ida, etc. Perhaps the writers of such exercises today should focus on response plans for, say, an Islamic terrorist who attacks a post. (See Ft. Hood / Major Nidal Malik Hasan.)

The Ft. Knox exercise is not only amateurish in its construct, but also sets an ominous political precedent.
The military officers and enlisted personnel with whom I spoke are all dedicated uniformed Patriots who are loyal, first and foremost, to their oath to “support and defend” our Constitution “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Their concerns about this exercise mirrored my own. As one put it, the exercise “misrepresents freedom loving Americans as drunken, violent racists — the opponents of Obama’s policies have been made the enemy of the U.S. Army.” They were equally concerned that command staff at Ft. Knox had signed off on this exercise, noting, “it has been issued and owned by field grade officers who lead our battalions and brigades,” which is to say many Lieutenant Colonels saw this order before it was implemented.
It’s not likely that Ft. Knox Commanding General James Milano or Deputy Commander Col. David Teeples, or even the regimental and brigade commanders for the 16th Cav and 194th AB, actually read the exercise scenario, but that doesn’t absolve responsibility for such an egregious example of political exploitation of U.S. forces.
One officer insisted, “The American people should require greater accountability of their commissioned officers, that they abide by their oath and never allow politically motivated propaganda like this exercise on any post or base again.”
Another observed, “Whether this is complacency by officers who do not see such orders as a problem, or worse, officers who recognize the problem but do not insist the orders are changed, this is a serious problem. We are discussing the training of American citizen soldiers in the use of potentially deadly force against a specific group of political dissenters. There is never a time in an officer’s career in which he does not have a duty to apply critical thought to the orders he is given and asked to give. It is my opinion that any officer that has allowed these orders to persist, to reach the level of junior officers and soldiers, has demonstrated a lack of judgment or apathy towards what his duty requires of him. Either way, we should demand more of the commissioned officers, who we as a nation empower to lead our sons and daughters into battle. Indeed, and at best, the blatant malfeasance on the part of the individuals who composed this exercise reflects poorly on the uniformed services.
The antidote to this patent misrepresentation of peaceable Patriots is to expose it with the Light of Truth. As our motto Veritas vos Liberabit affirms, the Truth shall set you Free!

Update from Mark Alexander – April 29, 2010
Regarding my essay, Army Preps for Tea Party ‘Terrorists’, I was contacted by senior command staff at Ft. Knox this afternoon. There was a security exercise at Ft. Knox this week, but an officer in the security loop altered the scenario “in order to make it more realistic.” Those alterations were described in my essay, exactly as they appeared. The command staff informed me that the alterations were not approved at the command level and that the individual who circulated the scenario through official channels will “receive appropriate counsel.” I was assured that the Command staff would not have authorized such a scenario.

An armed militia is not "anti-government extremism" but a right guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution!

As ex military I can say if Obama mobilizes any army against American citizens he will be ousted form office. First of all, if he does mobilize the Army or the National Guard, he will be organizing military men, who most likely, do not have the experience required for peaceful crowd control. The worst soldier to have on the battle field is the inexperienced one. I was trained in crowd control and it is a most difficult duty. If the people start to riot, Obama better be ready for the consequences. I pray this doesn’t happen.

True Americans are going to freak when they find out that this punk will mobilize the military against its own citizens but won’t do a thing about protecting our borders.
This guy is no longer an A-hole, he is the whole @$$.

The evidence is persuasive the U.S. Government has declared war on the peace-loving Citizens of our country. Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland* Security, in recognition of the military training of vets returning from the Middle East, has unwittingly revealed the thinking and plan by our own military leaders to conduct assaults on U.S. Citizens, when she publicly identified returning veterans as “potential domestic terrorists.” She has let slip the traitors now in control of government have laid plans for disarmament of our Citizens followed by enslavement of America, and then?? Think “eugenics.” (Ya’ gotta’ pay attention)New Orleans was a “practice… Read more »

Like Steve says–20 or 30 million — I think a whole lot more.

I’d guess a good indicator of future intent would be the passing of a Bill (or Bills) modifying the Posse Comitatus Act, a/o the Insurrection Act (as was modified by Congress in 2006 in response to the aftermath of hurricane Katrina – and rightfully repealed in its entirety in 2008) to enable Federal deployment of Military Forces in Law Enforcement capacities….

Alan, you have given an accurate but sad account of what is happening now. We, the people, no longer matter. What the Constitution stood for and stands for, no longer matters. As you pointed out, we must learn from history and wake up!

Thankfully it was a flake responsible for that (a liberal, NPR-addicted officer in an S2 shop there) but it still doesn’t set a good precedent.

It scares me to think our own military would fire on unarmed Americans.
But it has happened before.

They won’t hurt us, but Obama might hire his own, make no mistake about that.
