Posse Comitatus Use of U.S. Miltary On Home Turf Unconstitutional

The Executive branch of our own government - in cooperation with the Dept of Defense and Armed Forces brass, have better plans for these trained killers.. Bring them back home to the good old USA, where they will be quartered near population centers, only to be unleashed and sicced onto the American Public, at such a time (apparently coming soon) that our criminal President and his henchmen will impose Martial law, which incidentally, the President can declare without the approval or consent of the House or Senate, using EO #51 (Executive order) to put us all in lockdown and living in a total state of fear and chaos.. A cruel dictatorship we will then suffer under, for sure.

Our constitutional guarantee (posse comitatus) of dis-allowing Federal Military personnel to deal with civil unrest or demonstrations - is gone !! Out the window, Kaput ! Big Brother can use any force necessary to silence the people's rights to free speech and assembly..
