The Department of Defense issued an order signed by Brigadier General Daniel L. Shipley, Director, Manpower Plans and Policy on October 3, 2019, which authorizes the rapid activation of military forces to protect civil authorities in response to a “major disaster or emergency.”
The order titled Manpower Guidance for Activation and Deactivation of Reserve Component (RC) Marines Ordered to Active Duty ISO Defense Support of Civil Authorities details how Marines will be called to “active duty” upon orders from the U.S. Navy.
Shockingly, one of the first paragraphs details how it “will come with little warning.”
Requests for Federal assistance will come with little warning. As required, the Marine Corps must rapidly mobilize RC units and personnel IAW this MARADMIN in order to respond to threats in the Homeland.
Translated, this means that martial law may be coming sooner than later as the U.S. government appears to actually be anticipating nothing short of an impending civil war, asteroid strike, earthquake, tsunami, volcanic eruption, or some other type of similar but expected disaster scenario.
Section 2.C. of the activation request states:
A Commander’s Immediate Response Authority to save lives, prevent human suffering, or mitigate great property damage within the United States is set forth in REF A. Commanders shall comply with REF A, this MARADMIN, and any supplemental direction provided by higher headquarters.
Notice how it says “prevent human suffering or mitigate property damage within the United States?” Such a broad statement could give troops the authority to use live ammunition domestically or even kill right here on American soil.
Moreover, section 3.C.1. states:
Global sourcing requests cannot be considered by DC MRA due to rapid deployment required to prevent loss of life and nonapplicability of dwell.
This can’t be good. “Rapid deployment required to prevent loss of life.” What does that mean?
To boot, “dwell” does not apply anymore because the battlefield has apparently become the Homeland as the order makes clear.
In the military, dwell time is the amount of time that service members spend in their home station between deployments to war zones. It is used to calculate the deploy-to-dwell ratio. Dwell time is designed to allow service members a mental and physical break from combat and to give them time with their families. It is an important component of long term military readiness.
One comment posted to the ProjectAvalon.net forum says:
Rumor has it that all other armed forces got a similar letter. This particular letter is for the Marines and Navy. Note, the date is October 3, this is something new.
Jade helm was training, done under TRADOC, however, this particular notice authorizes live fire on American soil.
