Deploying the National Guard overseas on the basis of an Executive Order?

Posted by DNW on 2014/10/16

NBC News reports

“President Barack Obama is expected to issue an executive order Thursday paving the way for the deployment of National Guard forces to Liberia to help contain the Ebola outbreak there, sources told NBC News.

The sources said that eight engineers and logistical specialists from the Guard, both active-duty and reservists, would probably be included in the first deployment. They are expected to help build 17 Ebola treatment centers, with 100 beds apiece. The sources said that no decision had been made.

Defense Department officials said that the executive order was necessary to speed the deployments, and would allow the president to send additional forces as needed. Health officials have recorded more than 2,400 Ebola deaths in Liberia, the highest of any country.”

The National Guard? There have undoubtedly been numerous changes for the worse in our laws in recent years, but when did the President get the authority to call up National Guardsmen for duty beyond our borders on his own imperial say so?

What the hell has this country, and have its people, become?

UPDATE:

In partial answer to my own question we have this from the Heritage Foundation. I have made paragraphs in some cases where none were before in order to emphasize certain points.:

“In the 1980s, governors again resisted a presidential call for the militia (National Guard). Some of them objected to the deployment of their states’ National Guard troops to Central America. Led by Minnesota governor Rudy Perpich, these governors withheld their consent to federally ordered National Guard active duty training, as was their prerogative under then current federal law.

In response, Congress enacted the Montgomery Amendment, which prohibited governors from withholding consent for National Guard active duty service outside the United States.

Perpich filed suit against the Department of Defense, arguing that the Montgomery Amendment was unconstitutional because it infringed on the militia training authority granted to the states under Article I, Section 8, Clause 16.

Perpich also sought to enjoin the use of Minnesota National Guard troops in any training outside the United States that did not have the governor’s consent. Ultimately, the Supreme Court upheld the supremacy of presidential control over the operations of the militia when called into actual service of the United States.

Like James Monroe and Justice Joseph Story, the Court held that a state governor could not veto the use of a state militia when called upon by the nation in accordance with Congress’s constitutional power and the President’s constitutional authority.

Recent Presidents have made more use of the National Guard as a reserve, calling units up for long periods of duty abroad, in actions in the two Gulf Wars, Bosnia, and Afghanistan.”

All this still leaves open the matter of Congressional assent, and under what legal authority the militia is being “called into the actual service of the United States”.

My, what a race of serfs we have become.

WMD in Iraq?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/10/15

John Hitchcock:

Lib sickos spew the hate and bile at ‘Uncle Tom,’ ‘f***ing bitch’ Stacey Dash

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/10/15

John Hitchcock:

Just your typical Leftists spewing their racist filth at a black woman who didn’t stay on the plantation. As is always the case.

Originally posted on Twitchy:

Yes, these tweets directed at Stacey Dash are SICK, but we’ve come to expect that from liberals. Here’s the latest that has them so pissed, this time angry that Stacey Dash used “plantation mentality” in a sentence:

And here’s the video:

One, notice that Media Matters doesn’t actually write why they think Stacey is wrong; they’ve just posted the video with “plantation mentality” in the headline. And two, she’s really not saying anything that crazy, especially when you realize she’s discussing this ad from African-American State Senator Elbert Guillory where Guillory hammers Sen. Mary Landrieu for ignoring African-American voters in the state. More from Guillory:

‘Transparency win!’ You’ll have to wait a bit longer for this Obamacare surprise

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/10/14

John Hitchcock:

Any Leftist want to lie and tell us how good that socialist, fascist, UNCONSTITUTIONAL ObamaCare is for the people? When they do political parlor tricks to hide the jump in costs until after they get elected, all normal people know exactly what is going on. It’s corrupt, deceitful, and harmful to the US and to the Constitution and to We the People.

Originally posted on Twitchy:

It sure is! Oh, wait …

What’s all this about keeping premium costs under wraps? Allow the Washington Times to explain:

Those planning to purchase health insurance on the Obamacare exchange will soon find out how much rates have increased — after the Nov. 4 election.

Enrollment on the Healthcare.gov website begins Nov. 15, or 11 days after the midterm vote, and critics who worry about rising premium hikes in 2015 say that’s no coincidence. Last year’s inaugural enrollment period on the health-care exchange began Oct. 1.

Today’s Muddled East Warring Outbreaks has its Roots in the Armistice of WW1

Posted by Yorkshire on 2014/10/08

I received an email the other day from a Think Tank on World events. The group is called STRATFOR and tackles all types of Issues on World Problems. I dod not get the big in depth reports mostly made for International Businesses and other interests that have reasons to know what goes on in the world for News Analysis, Financial Decisions, International Corporations and others on an in depth need to know. For me, it’s sort of a casual curiosity of why things may go bump in the night. However, in the last few days this one report came through on the Muddled East and it instantly made things clearer as to why I instinctively have labeled the area “The Muddled East” for years.

First off over the centuries Islam has been at war with the West. Their extent ranged at one time from the Pyrenees Mountains in the west between France and Spain, and in the east from Instanbul to Vienna and Eastwards. By 1492 they were out of Spain, and later pushed to the Balkans. By the late 19th Century what was left was the Ottoman Empire/Caliphate. By World War1 it was somewhat worn out. In WW1 it hitched its wagon to the equally Austro-Hungarian Empire. Unfortunately, they lost that bet.

While Germany was being pounded at Versailles, Turkey or the Ottomans were waiting their turn at the table. They went to the Table with DEMANDS. They were told they LOST and was handed their Treaty and told to SIGN. They did, but hated it since their crumbling Empire was sliced and diced to where it is or being contested today. So, the reality was there was a treaty, but in the Muddled East was there PEACE.

Since the same wagons were rehitched in WW2, the outcome was worse since Israel was introduced into the Muddled area. So, after I read the following report, and watched Turkey in the last few days just watching ISIS come to the Syrian-Turkey border, but not crossing it, Turkey in a “Humanitarian” effort sat on its ASS. Apparently, the ghost of the WW1 is still alive and muddling the more than usual Muddled East.

Turkey, the Kurds and Iraq: The Prize and Peril of Kirkuk
Geopolitical Weekly
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2014

By Reva Bhalla

In June 1919, aboard an Allied warship en route to Paris, sat Damat Ferid Pasha, the Grand Vizier of a crumbling Ottoman Empire. The elderly statesman, donning an iconic red fez and boasting an impeccably groomed mustache, held in his hands a memorandum that he was to present to the Allied powers at the Quai d’Orsay. The negotiations on postwar reparations started five months earlier, but the Ottoman delegation was prepared to make the most of its tardy invitation to the talks. As he journeyed across the Mediterranean that summer toward the French shore, Damat Ferid mentally rehearsed the list of demands he would make to the Allied powers during his last-ditch effort to hold the empire together.

‘Just what we need now': Jesse Jackson all set to battle Ebola-induced racism [photo]

John Hitchcock:

Jesse “hymietown” Jackson is going to make sure an ebola patient gets the best possible care how? Shaking down hymies? Or whites? Putting a gun to the head of the head nurse? (Oh, he already did a version of that. Just ask his wife.)

Because Jesse Jackson has made himself the latest weapon in the fight against Ebola:

Why wouldn’t Duncan receive the best medical care?

If I Were The Devil – by Paul Harvey

Posted by Yorkshire on 2014/10/06

<em>Paul Harvey predated Rush Limbaugh by a decade or more. However, I always thought his 5 minute commentaries at times made more sense than an hour of Rush. We did not have talk radio in the 60’s, but we had Paul Harvey and his noon time comments. His “rest of the story” comments were good stories of good people. However, reading this today rings true and worse in the following 50 years:</em>

<em><strong>The oldest genuine Paul Harvey version of this piece we’ve found so far appeared in his newspaper column in 1964:</strong></em> (Snopes)( http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/devil.asp)

<strong>If I Were the Devil </strong>

If I were the Prince of Darkness I would want to engulf the whole earth in darkness.

I’d have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree.

So I should set about however necessary, to take over the United States.

I would begin with a campaign of whispers.

With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whispers to you as I whispered to Eve, “Do as you please.”

<strong>To the young I would whisper “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that “man created God,” instead of the other way around. I would confide that “what is bad is good and what is good is square.”</strong>

In the ears of the young married I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. <strong>I would caution them not to be “extreme” in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct. </strong>

And the old I would teach to pray — to say after me — <strong>”Our father which are in Washington.” </strong>

Then I’d get organized.

I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull, uninteresting.

I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies, and vice-versa.

I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing, less work. Idle hands usually work for me.

I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could, I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction, I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

If I were the Devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions; let those run wild.

I’d designate an atheist to front for me before the highest courts and I’d get preachers to say, “She’s right.”

<strong>With flattery and promises of power I would get the courts to vote against God and in favor of pornography.</strong>

<strong>Thus I would evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, then from the Houses of Congress</strong>.

Then in his own churches I’d substitute psychology for religion and deify science.

If I were Satan I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg

And the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

<strong>If I were the Devil I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. Then my police state would force everybody back to work.</strong>

Then I would separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines and objectors in slave-labor camps.

If I were Satan I’d just keep doing what I’m doing and the whole world go to hell as sure as the Devil.
<em>Does this sound familiar. Paul Harvey wrote it in 1964, it could just as well been written in 2014</em>.

Michael Moore watching quiet ‘elimination game in an eliminated city’

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/10/05

John Hitchcock:

You would think 60 years of Democrat One Party Rule taking Detroit from 2,000,000 people to under 700,000 and collapsing under its own governmental weight would give this clown a clue, but then again, we’re talking about the Socialist who wants to keep all his wealth here, so cognitive dissonance is a permanent fixture with him.

It’s Michael Moore so there’s of course a large dollop of hyperbole, but the filmmaker is looking at a quiet Tigers game as a sign of “an eliminated city that invented the (eliminated) middle class.”

Inviting Michael Moore to lunch? The rich must be doing OK in Detroit.

A Great Corbett Ad For PA Gov. (Sarcasm alert)

If ANYONE in the BO Maldministration Opens Their Mouth, WILL WE HEAR THE TRUTH??

Posted by Yorkshire on 2014/10/03

My vote is never.  Around past 4:30PM Today, Friday, a group of mouth movers trotted out on the White House Briefing Room stage to ASSURE there are NO PROBLEMS in Obolama Land (One thing I read from the Book BO learned from as a child in Indonesia, if a lie is necessary, by all means tell it).  Which leads to the statements from the mouth movers that ALL Former Obolama outbreaks were conquered and stuffed out from the 70′s to last year. “Reassurance flowed from these jaw jackers. Then as is everything Obama, it didn’t quite ring TRUE. Yes, there were outbreaks in the years the mouth breathers said, but they quite haven’t matched today’s outbreak. (I know, what’s a small difference? Just semantics.

But our fellow Bloggers at the “Modern Survival Blog” did some research to challenge the Jaw Jackers. Here in part of an item from the MSB is this:

There’s Something Very Different About This Ebola
October 3, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin
Modern Survival Blog

The first case of Ebola was during 1976 which infected 318 people (280 died).
The second major Ebola outbreak was during 1995 with 315 cases (killing 254).
During 2003 Ebola infected 143 and killed 128.
In 2007 Ebola affected 264 individuals resulting in 187 deaths.
This time, in 2014, as of this post date, Ebola has been confirmed to have infected 7,000 and is expected to rise to 20,000 by November and perhaps 1.4 million by January 2015.
SOMETHING IS VERY DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS EBOLA

Continue Here PLEASE for the full article: (It’s worth it)
http://modernsurvivalblog.com/pandemic/theres-something-very-different-about-this-ebola/

Ken’s policy on “borrowing” his info is this
Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full and clear credit is given to ModernSurvivalBlog.com with appropriate and specific direction to the original content.

Anyway, the podium standers wanted DESPARATELY to DOWNPLAY this Obomala Issue. They cited with high dudgeon of reassurance this Obolama will be licked 1-2-3. But they stated the following:
The 1st case of Ebola was during 1976 and it was wiped out. But neglected to tell us it infected 318 people (280 died).
The 2nd case of Ebola was during 1995 and it was wiped out. But neglected to tell us it infected 315 people (254 died).
The 3rd case of Ebola was during 2003 and it was wiped out. But neglected to tell us it infected 143 people (128 died).
And the last case of Ebola was during 2007 and it was wiped out. But neglected to tell us it infected 264 people (187 died).

Now in 2014 as of Ken’s posting date, Ebola has been confirmed to have infected 7,000 and is expected to rise to 20,000 by November and perhaps 1.4 million by January 2015. It seems the earlier dated infected and eradicated in total is much smaller. A total of under 1,000 combined. It was just that little item left out of a LATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON PRESS CONFERENCE. But with all Campaign speeches of BO, Everything is OK, and we are much better off now than 6 years ago. (wink) OOOPS, but Obama does lie as he was taught when the Truth Becomes INCONVENIENT as his “Book” learning in Indonesia taught him.

I’m sure someday, if this doesn’t wipe us out, we might find the truth. (Or maybe the Border crashers brought it like the respitory disease that can paralyze people)

‘Thinnest skin in the AGW cult’: Climate change alarmist frets over ‘favorited’ Mark Steyn tweet

It seems Georgia Tech climate scientist Judith Curry offended climate change alarmist Greg Laden. How? It all started when Laden noticed that Curry “favorited” a Mark Steyn tweet. Laden wanted an apology — yes, an apology — from somebody for favoriting the tweet of another:

Laden wrote that Curry has become “increasingly aligned with those who are highly skeptical that global warming is real.” Favoriting this Mark Steyn tweet was the last straw:

‘You bastard': Choudary’s propaganda provokes angry responses

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/10/02

John Hitchcock:

The best way to avoid being infected by the Choudary virus is to napalm it. Oh, and Mohammedans murdering other Mohammedans is “disagreements” being resolved, according to a Mohammedan who doesn’t want anyone noting the mass genocidal hatred being used by ISIS, but who cries that US and UK is doing something about it, he doesn’t like.

It’s interesting. To the Left, Christianity and Mohammedanism is same-same. But even the Left are starting to see a difference in some of it, I think. Choudary won’t have much luck with his special brand of evil, even among the mainstream Leftist lemmings.
