Dear President Obama,
I understand you considered using U.S. military force against militia forces at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada. Well golly we are shaking in our boots. You understand this would have been in direct violation of the the 1878 “Posse Comitatus Act” and an act of war against “We the people”.
The Posse Comitatus Act states:
Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.
This would also explain the purging of our military at the highest levels. I guess these purged commanders refused to comply with your request to shoot upon the American people if called upon to do so by YOU! Well you fired over 200 of these brave patriots and now they are 100 times more powerful as armed private citizens. You made a huge mistake.
Mr. President, you considered a military attack against the militia at the Bundy Ranch by applying the unconstitutional Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” which was issued by the Pentagon on December 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.” To continue it states:
“Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances unless specifically authorized by the president in accordance with applicable law or permitted under emergency authority,”
The directive then states.
“In these circumstances, those federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the president is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances” under two conditions.
The conditions include military support needed “to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order.” A second use is when federal, state and local authorities “are unable or decline to provide adequate protection for federal property or federal governmental functions.”
“Federal action, including the use of federal military forces, is authorized when necessary to protect the federal property or functions,”
Military assistance can include loans of arms, ammunition, vessels and aircraft. The directive states clearly that it is for engaging civilians during times of unrest.
The directive was signed by then-Deputy Defense Secretary William J. Lynn. The full text of the directive may be found on the Pentagon website.
So why did a U.S. official, a man who works in the White House state that you considered but then rejected deploying military forces under this directive during the recent standoff with our militia at Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s home?
Mr. President, why did you cave in and not fire upon the militia members at the Bundy ranch? Why did you order the Bureau of Land Management, (BLM) a federal, fascist like, militarized unit to stand down?
You must have seen the light and realized you would lose this fight. You would then have been arrested and impeached for crimes against the U.S. Constitution, charged with the murder of innocent Americans and you probably would have started a Second American Revolutionary War.
We the people will not permit such folly. The Second Amendment is probably the only thing keeping your progressive/socialist policies in check. It kept Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Imperial Japanese out of our nation during World War II. Now its keeping you in check too. Agreed? Our founding Fathers were wiser than we could ever imagine, and you are the newest iteration of the Communist – Fascist – Marxist ideology they prepared us for.
Mr. President, defense analysts across this nation are watching you very closely and they state you have built tactical armed military units within non-security-related federal agencies. You have created Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams within the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Internal Revenue Service and the Education Department, etc., etc., etc.
Why are you doing this Mr. President and why is the Congress allowing you to do this? Where is Speaker John Boehner? There is ZERO leadership in the Congress for the people.
The militarization of federal agencies is in full swing and the White House continues to launch psychological Saul Alinskyesque attacks upon U.S. private citizens’ regarding ownership of firearms despite the fact that Americans are law-abiding citizens.
Where is the Congress of the United States? We paying them $175,000 a year for what, exactly? To sit around while the BLM, IRS, DHS and other federal agencies build armies against we the people? It is time for Speaker Boehner get off the fence and start writing a bill to disarm all of these federal agencies. DO IT NOW or blood will be spilled, American blood! Congressman Miller get off your seat and stand with the people! Write the bill, pass it and get it through the U.S. Senate.
I called the White House National Security Council direct line for an answer but your team won’t comment to me. What are you hiding Mr. President?
I am glad Mr. President you chose wisely and abandoned your attempt to shoot our Constitutionally legally amassed militia forces in Nevada. The outcome of such a battle would be a huge loss for the government. Trust me. There are more of us than you and we are not afraid to protect the Republic legally and constitutionally under all Amendments the Founding Fathers entrusted us with.
God Bless America and shame on the Congress for not protecting us. I guess it up to us. This is why more guns and ammo are being bought by American men and women. They are going to need them one day it appears. Mr. Obama is preparing a war against we the people.
Working off facts and not hear-say on this issue, I believe I am 99.9% right.
Brilliant, simply brilliant! The left's hair must be on fire!
He is definitely not our President. He is a dictator of the worst kind. His only intention is to destroy America. The only hope we have is for him to vanish from out earth. I'm so proud of Col. Riley. He is truly a Patriot. This letter is very impressive.
Remember that God is on our side and good will triumph no matter what.
Yes, you are 100% RIGHT. My response to this: OUTSTANDING
Harry Riley is absolutely correct about the more than 200 senior military commanders Obama has cashiered out of the US Military!! If Obama start killing US Citizens all hell well break loose!!!! Obama and his wife and all of their ilk will end up like Mussolini and his mistress!!!

I will not ever..EVER let anyone disarm me or anyone else Im protecting or with....BRING IT OBUMMER...WE THE PEOPLE ARE READY FOR THE NEXT REVOLUTION......JUST REMEMBER...WERE COMING FOR YOUR MUSLIM ASS FIRST....AMEN
We've been closer to a Second Revolution than we were to going to war with Russia in the Bay of Pigs incident. Nonetheless, I think we all are glad to see that the situation at the Bundy Ranch was De-escalated. We also know that it likely will not be long before someone in office gets a little over zealous in their assumed powers and takes it upon themselves to open the flood gates.
Many letters like these have gone out, the message has been received over the past 20 years or so. I think it only falls on deaf ears. The time for talk is over. Our ground needs to be stood and we should all recall, recite and reinforce the words of Cpt. J. Parker, 19 April 1775: "Don't fire unless fired upon but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here."
Well, I for one have been "watching" closely for years since pres. Johnson...I now understand the "Survivalists" groups much better!!! I'm a combat vet and my wife and i have seen the changes over the years. We have decided to start stocking up supplies...I don't know if i would be accepted within a "Survivalist's" compound. I'm a Black man. And a Conservative!! Proud of it and so is my wife. We didn't vote for that @$$hole in DC and we want him gone. The Republicans are hurting Americans too!!! BUT; The DIMMocrats are LYING at every turn to get votes!!!! THAT is why i can't vote for a Dimmocrat!!! BOTH Parties suck but;....Come on....We The PEOPLE are not THAT STUPID!!!!
Sir: the color of your skin don't mean anything to a true patriot, You are a true American and we welcome you any time.
Forrest, You are correct. I am a red, white & blue American...But i am "stereotyped" on a daily basis!!! Most people "assume" that i voted for hussein just because i'm Black!!! I live in a predominantly white "county" and i am talking "RURAL" GA.....The only thing that keeps me sane out here is that all of these white folks KNOW that i am a decorated veteran of 20+ yrs, I'm a conservative and i take ZERO $hit from anybody!!! Well, here is a plus: They know that i didn't vote for hussein because he was black....They know that i didn't vote for him at all because i had no clue about who he was!!!! He was "shady" in 2008 and has gotten darker since.... But Thanks Forrest for your reply! I consider YOU a true PATRIOT as well!!!....God Bless...
