Here is what President Barack Obama said when he was Candidate Barack Obama: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order 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."
Here is what he has planned and brought about since being elected: The House bill, H.R. 1388 is called the GIVE (Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education) Act. Patriotic Americans have been wondering how and when Obama would enforce a "National Civilian Security Force.” We are now seeing a framework emerge that paints a totalitarian portrait of this socialist president’s agenda to create his own defense force that will enslave our children and young adults into a civilian “forced-volunteer” armed defense group. The following information is before you in black and white.
The Give Act” Will Take Our Liberty!The GIVE Act of '09 is available as a pdf file. The following text was found on pg. 76 of the 303 page .pdf: [Emphasis added.] SEC. 6103. ESTABLISHMENT.
There is already an established legislative branch a commission known as the ‘‘Congressional Commission on Civic Service’’ (in this title referred to as the ‘‘Commission’’). SEC. 6104. DUTIES. (b) SPECIFIC TOPICS.—In carrying out its general purpose under subsection (a), the Commission shall address and analyze the following specific topics:
(5) The effect on the Nation, on those who serve, and on the families of those who serve, if all individuals in the United States were expected to perform nationalservice or were required to perform a certain amount of national service.
(6) Whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed, and how such a requirement could be implemented in a manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds
There is nothing - NOTHING - in the Constitution of the United States that warrants, mandates or permits this, but that has never stopped this President or this congress from doing what is specifically prohibited in the constitution before, and the Republicans are right in the thick of it with the Democrats.
The media is giving Obama a free pass? The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a plan to set up a new “volunteer corps” (‘Forced Volunteerism – The world’s most obvious oxymoronic term) and they are consider whether “a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people” should be developed. What the White House and the Congress are actually doing is trying to find the right terminology to bring this charade about that can pass constitutional muster in the Supreme Court.
The legislation also refers to "uniforms” that would be worn by Obama’s conscripted “volunteers” and the “need” for a “Public Service Academy”, which will be a 4-year institution” to “focus on training” future “public sector leaders,” and the training will apparently occur on “campuses” Instead of camps.
The vote on H.R. 1388 reauthorized, through 2014, the National and Community Service Act of 1990 and the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973. These were acts that originally funded the AmeriCorps and the National Senior Service Corps. It also reauthorizes the programs, but also includes “new programs and studies” and is expected to be funded with an allocation of $6 billion over the next five years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
Freedom-loving American, both Republican and Democrat, are concerned with this program. It is to include 250,000 “volunteers,” and is the beginning of what President Obama called for during his presidential bid which he named as his “National Civilian Security Force” In that speech, then candidate Obama urged the creation of an organization as big and as well-funded as the U.S. military. He has declined since then to elaborate.
Canada Free Press reports:
The Give Act puts makes Obama’s unconstitutional plan, what he says is New Leadership for New Times, and which is called Public Allies and is modeled after Saul Alinsky’s “Peoples Organizations” and is operating under Michelle Obama with an alleged operating budget of more than $75-million a year. According to a fact sheet about Public Allies, “President Obama was a member of the founding advisory board of the non-profit organization. Michelle Obama was the founding Executive Director of Public Allies Chicago from spring, 1993 until fall 1996. She served on Public Allies National Board of Directors from 1997 until 2002. Obama was no longer on the board when Michelle was hired.
Radical First Lady?
Michelle Obama was also a pioneer in the social entrepreneur movement that stated that its mandate was for the creation of new approaches and to organize to provide new solutions to social problems. Like most things Saul Alinsky, H.R. 1388 sounds noble in stating why wide-sweeping change is necessary. “The Give Act” aims to “leverage investments to increase State, local, business and philanthropic resources to address national and local challenges.”
All encompassing in its power, H.R. 1388 takes control of all volunteerism in America, and impacts everything from the lemonade stands of children, to the residents of senior citizens retirement homes. So far, the only media to have taken an interest in these disturbing plans have been right wing blogs. First, our ears perked up when we heard Michelle Obama speak these weirdly authoritarian words:
“Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone . . . Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual – uninvolved, uninformed.”
Then, last summer at a campaign rally in Colorado Springs, Obama took the occasion to introduce his plan to implement a “National Civilian Security Force”, in which he described an organization “as big and well-funded as the U.S. military.”
Media outlets were so perturbed by Obama’s bizarre words, they airbrushed them out of the published transcripts of the speech. And then, right after he was elected, he raised eyebrows again with this audacious change.gov “Office of the President Elect” website post:
Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school, and 100 hours of community service in collge every year. See? There’s that word, “require”, again, which was eventually scrubbed from the site when an internet uproar ensued. And, who can forget Rahm Emanuel’s words from his 2006 tome, The Plan: Big Ideas for America, which we didn’t hear about until after the election:
“It’s time for a real Patriot Act that brings out the patriot in all of us. We propose universal civilian service for every young American. Under this plan, All Americans between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five will be asked to serve their country by going through three months of basic training, civil defense preparation and community service.
Here's how it would work. Young people will know that between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five, the nation will enlist them for three months of civilian service. They'll be asked to report for three months of basic civil defense training in their state or community, where they will learn what to do in the event of biochemical, nuclear or conventional attack; how to assist others in an evacuation; how to respond when a levee breaks or we're hit by a natural disaster. These young people will be available to address their communities' most pressing needs.”
How about not?
Now that a form of this plan has been passed by the House, could we possibly get someone in the media to please take an interest? I suspect most Americans would be creeped out by this. But they have to know about it, first.
Obama’s Civil Defense Program Resembles Domestic Draft
Paul Joseph Watson Prison Planet.com
Wednesday, November 12, 2008
A newly rediscovered 2006 audio clip has shed more light on Rahm Emanuel and Barack Obama’s plan for compulsory community service and a “national civilian security force”. In an interview with Ben Smith of the New York Daily News, Emanuel outlined the agenda for military-style training, essentially a domestic draft, aimed at preparing Americans for a chemical or biological terrorist attack.
Asked by Smith about the universal service plan and whether people would have to live in military barracks, Emanuel laughed before responding, “We’re going to have universal civil defense training, somewhere between the ages of 18 to 25 you will do three months of training….but there can be nothing wrong with all Americans having a joint similar experience of what we call civil defense training or civil service in service of the country, in preparation, which will give people a sense of what it means to be an American.”
In response to the point that the program was significantly expanded in comparison to what the U.S. government already has in place, Emanuel responded, “Guess what – we have a lot more challenges so we are going to need a lot to do it.”
What challenges is Emanuel referring to? The same crisis foretold by Joe Biden, Colin Powell and others that we are “guaranteed” will unfold shortly after Obama takes office?
“It will be a common experience and we will be prepared, God forbid, God forbid that there is a chemical hit, another terrorist act or natural disaster becoming more frequent – there’ll be a body of citizens who are ready and capable and trained – that’s all you have to think about,” said Emanuel before smugly declaring, “We’re all here for you OK? It’s a circle of love.”
Asked if the training would be military style, with people wearing uniforms, Emanuel stated, “If you’re worried about are you going to have to do 50 jumping jacks the answer is yes,” adding that the service could be done through state national guard.
A jumping jack is a military term for an exercise otherwise known as a star jump. What on earth does Emanuel mean when he says Americans are going to be forced to perform military-style physical exercises and what does this have to do with civil defense or preparing for a terrorist attack? It sounds more like the state-mandated physical workouts described in Orwell’s 1984.
The video then features a clip from C-Span from August 2006 in which Emanuel is asked whether the program will be compulsory, to which he responds, “In a sense it’s required of everybody, 18 to 25, three months, and at some point at that point you do it.”
The use of the word “required” is noteworthy, because this exact terminology was removed from Obama’s change.gov website when controversy over the program arose last week.
The militarized nature of the program and its supposed intention sounds more like a draft-lite than the “community service” angle now being pitched on Obama’s website. It also bears similarities to the nationwide FEMA-run program training pastors and preachers to act as “pacifiers” in the event of martial law being declared after a terror attack or a natural disaster.
Will the liberal left pay as much attention to Emanuel’s stated agenda to implement a proxy domestic draft as they did to rumors of Bush bringing back conscription, or will the true scope of Obama’s “national civilian security force” continue to fly under the radar?
Watch the clip below.
