National Guard May Take Over Police Duties in Alabama

National Guard Might Take Over Police Duties in Alabama

The implementation on martial law in America advanced a step further yesterday when the sheriff of Alabama’s most populous county said he would probably have to bring in National Guard troops to perform law enforcement duties due to budget cuts.

Plans to slash $4.1 million from the budget of Sheriff Mike Hale by Jefferson County commissioners in order to head off a municipal bankruptcy filing were approved by Circuit Judge Joseph L. Boohaker.

“A spokesman for Hale, Randy Christian, said the sheriff told Riley after the ruling that state assistance may be needed to perform basic law enforcement tasks once the department’s current funding is exhausted in early September,” reports the Associated Press.

“We will certainly be looking at calling in the National Guard,” said Christian.

Jefferson County has 640,000 residents and includes the state’s largest city, Birmingham.

Moves to replace traditional law enforcement with National Guard troops have been replicated in other parts of the country, including in Schenectady New York, where budgetary constraints were not even cited as a reason for the changeover.

After a handful of police officers were accused of assaulting citizens, Mayor Brian Stratton proposed declaring martial law and replacing the city’s entire roster of cops with National Guardsmen.

“It may be that as a stopgap measure, that you would need military forces – State Police, National Guard.” the Mayor said.

The use of military assets in civilian law enforcement is still illegal under Posse Comitatus, unless a clear state of emergency exists. The misbehavior of a few cops or the inability of a Sheriff to manage a budget cut does not constitute a state of emergency.

In this context, without the justification of an existing crisis that mandates National Guard intervention, the threat to replace police officers with troops on a whim is a sad reflection of how America is turning into a Soviet style military police state, as law enforcement increasingly shifts over to Homeland Security and Northcom controlled military assets.

 

Possible National Guard Deployment in Alabama Result of Bankster Scam

Earlier today, Paul Joseph Watsonn reported on the expected deployment of National Guard troops in Jefferson County, Alabama, to perform law enforcement duties in violation of Posse Comitatus due to budget cuts. “Plans to slash $4.1 million from the budget of Sheriff Mike Hale by Jefferson County commissioners in order to head off a municipal bankruptcy filing were approved by Circuit Judge Joseph L. Boohaker,” Watson wrote.

As it turns out, Jefferson County’s financial woes are a direct result of a bankster derivative scam.

“A few years ago Jefferson County, Alabama bought 17 interest rate swaps from JP Morgan, Lehman Brothers and Bank of America with the intention of hedging interest rate risk,” writes Moe Tkacki for the Business Insider’s Clusterstock. “In a sequence of events that played out in state capitals, city halls, and school and public utility boardrooms throughout the country , Jefferson County officials bought into complex interest rate swap contracts they didn’t understand, at much higher prices than the going rate, only to face hundreds of millions of dollars in sudden collateral calls when the subprime mortgage crisis began.”

Credit default swaps are a mega-scam perpetuated by the major banks. Last year, there was more than 70 trillion dollars in the so-called credit default swap market, a sum larger than the GDP of the world. “If only 1 to 2 percent ’service fee’ were charged in these transactions (which are based on illusory assets), we’re talking nearly three-quarters to one-and-a-half trillion dollars in real term fees being siphoned off (i.e. hijacked from) the global economy for no productive, but merely parasitic, purpose,” writes Zeus Yiamouyiannis. “One thing of which I am convinced, we have just been ripped off trillions of dollars and 700 billion of even real money won’t fix the problem.”

In late 2008, then Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson attempted to cover-up this scam and protect his bankster masters. Now the damage is coming home to roost in places like Jefferson County, Alabama. Expect the rot to spread and troops to be called out in other parts of the country.

It really is a genius plan on the part of our globalist rulers. First, they hijacked the economy with their scam. Second, they created an economic crisis of fantastic proportion (and are now demanding world government as the cure). Third, in response to the social and political disintegration caused by their scam cash-strapped government tells us they have to lay-off the police and send out the troops because “anarchy” will rule if they don’t.

It is problem-reaction-solution on steroids.

For now, reports the Associated Press, “sewer system is still operating normally” — sewers are one of the hallmarks of an advanced civilization — but the county has closed four satellite courthouses and residents are standing in line for hours at the main courthouse to do routine business like renewing car tags.

It doesn’t take much imagination to speculate what will happen when the sewers stop working and normal government operations — fire and ambulance service, county hospitals, trash collection, the maintenance of the public water system, etc. — come crashing to a halt.

Jefferson County will need the National Guard to stop the plebs from revolting.

On July 30, Infowars reported on an Illinois Army National Guard plan to put Armored Security Vehicles on the streets. “A Springfield-based military police company will be training with a new armored vehicle in the area this week,” the Associated Press reported. “The Illinois Army National Guard says training with the new Armored Security Vehicles will start Thursday and run through Sunday.”

An Infowars reader captured an image of the combat vehicles over the weekend. “Here is a picture of the Illinois National Guard driving the new armored military police vehicles through the streets of Springfield, Illinois.”

Staff Sgt. Daniel Becker told the AP people shouldn’t be afraid of the vechicles. “No, they shouldn’t be afraid — they need to let the idea sink in that it is normal for armed troops to be on the streets. After they get used to military vehicles on the roads, they will need to get accustomed to military checkpoints like the ones in Iraq and Afghanistan,” we wrote at the time.
