NORTHCOM Ready To Implement Martial Law

USNORTHCOM recently announced on their official web site that they are ready to implement martial law. In a press release, the military command stated that the organization is ready to respond to any homeland defense or civil support mission requirement. Considering that George W. Bush has signed a directive making the President a dictator over continuity of government operations in the case of a catastrophic emergency, any homeland defense or civil support mission requirement would include the implementation of martial law. Below is the full press release which contains all sorts of wonderfully crafted politically correct language from their PR people that attempts to convince us that the use of the military domestically for all declared emergencies is perfect acceptable.

U.S. Northern Command’s primary mission is Homeland Defense, and the command stands ready to respond to any homeland defense or civil support mission requirement.

“The U.S. military absolutely has the capacity to respond to potential threats within our nation today. It will get better in this coming year and continue to improve beyond that,” said Gen. Gene Renuart, USNORTHCOM commander.

Established in 2002 as a result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, USNORTHCOM has dramatically expanded DoD’s focus on all aspects of Homeland Defense, including planning and exercising, as well as organizing new headquarters and units that are specifically tailored for domestic response.

USNORTHCOM has prepared detailed plans for responding to situations that range from pandemic influenza to Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear events, and the command has redefined its readiness capabilities since Hurricane Katrina.

When it comes to providing forces in response to incidents, the command has nearly 50 National Guard officers fully integrated within its operations, in addition to National Guard Civil Support Teams located within every U.S. state and territory, and 17 regional consequence response units.

USNORTHCOM also utilizes an active-duty military response unit of nearly 450 Marines who are the “gold standard” for responding to weapons of mass destruction attacks. In addition, there are pre-identified active-duty and Reserve components (4,000 members each) on a short string to provide additional muscle to initial response teams.

USNORTHCOM’s primary mission remains defending the homeland, and Americans can be assured the U.S. military is ready and capable of responding to attacks within the United States.

The establishment of USNORTHCOM has helped blur the lines between police and the military. It is an illegal and unconstitutional entity that should be abolished. In the press release they admit that the National Guard is integrating into their operations and that they are setting up new centers of operations which will act as fusion centers between different authorities. This combined with a report from the Progressive indicating that private businesses will be brought into the martial law system and given shoot on sight privileges is certainly a disturbing development. These things would not be happening if the government didn’t have future plans to use this wide ranging control system designed specifically for martial law. USNORTHCOM is clearly shaping up to be the command and control apparatus that will be used to implement martial law if such a need arises in the near future. As USNORTHCOM continues to push forward with their system and as the economy continues to unravel, we might be seeing USNORTHCOM deployed in the United States to quell violence if an economic collapse takes place.
