Give Me Liberty-Naomi Wolf And No, I Am Not Crazy

Naomi Wolf is not a crack-Pot wearing a tin-foil hat, and neither am I. Most of what she has to say here has a factual basis... Naomi has the credibility, though she has been routinely savaged by the right wing since she was a senior adviser to Al Gore in the 2000 charade election, and because her critically acclaimed writing and books speak truth to power.

From Salon.com:
" For more than 100 years — since the end of the Civil War — deployment of the U.S. military inside the U.S. has been prohibited under The Posse Comitatus Act (the only exceptions being that the National Guard and Coast Guard are exempted, and use of the military on an emergency ad hoc basis is permitted, such as what happened after Hurricane Katrina). Though there have been some erosions of this prohibition over the last several decades (most perniciously to allow the use of the military to work with law enforcement agencies in the “War on Drugs”), the bright line ban on using the U.S. military as a standing law enforcement force inside the U.S. has been more or less honored — until now. And as the Army Times notes, once this particular brigade completes its one-year assignment, “expectations are that another, as yet unnamed, active-duty brigade will take over and that the mission will be a permanent one.”

Here is the Army Times Piece. Please make note of the sections on training for "civil unrest" and of course the clubs, Tasers, and rubber bullets. "Supporting" and participating in civilian law-enforcement actions sets the precedent and pretense for martial-law by default. Call me nutty, but we have finally met all of the requirements in order to be officially termed a fascist police state.
