ENHANCING SECURITY – PROJECTING CIVIL AUTHORITY INTO AMERICA’S UNCONTROLLED SPACES:

A thesis presented to the Faculty of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Degree MASTER OF MILITARY ART AND SCIENCE Homeland Security by
WILLIAM PRESSON,
CHIEF INSPECTOR U.S. MARSHALS SERVICE

Abstract:

Actions taken or not taken by law enforcement agencies, in “Ungoverned Spaces” reduce US ability to forestall hostile actions on US soil. The current organizational limitations of US civil authorities’ poses a problem to accomplishing the goals of our National Security Strategy to “Prevent attacks on the Homeland” and “Enhancing security at Home.” To that end, this thesis examines areas of the United States that function as “Ungoverned Spaces” and possible strategies to maximize Interagency and interoperable government control through joint operations between civil authorities and Department of Defense forces. Finally, the author analyzed the gaps in the ability of law enforcement to project civil authority and the historical short falls of civil law enforcement in past events. The recommendations suggest; the creation of a full time paramilitary police force trained, and maintained in sufficient size and strength to police our nations ungoverned spaces, established as a full time National Guard unit. Satisfying the author’s recommendations on the use of the National Guard as a paramilitary police force, he examines historical and current legal precedent for the legal deployment of National Guard troops under Title 32 as a law enforcement entity.

See page 52 (page 60 in the .pdf) for the punch line(s), but do at least scan the whole thing as an example of OpFor mindset.

My fave quote thus far (.pdf pp. 63-64):

***
…The very nature of this nation’s separation of power and balance of governance laid out by our founding fathers to protect the citizens of the United States has become fractured by time and a changing globalfootprint of state and non-state actors. The very mechanisms of democracy and the separation of power to protect this nation from government tyranny have also created a national vulnerability. It has created an aversion to a national police force or the use of the military as a paramilitary police force and has created multiple large governmental organizations competing for the same resources with little unity of effort. The author refrained from attempting to formulate a National Guard paramilitary police forcestructure, he believes that topic is beyond the scope of this thesis and is a future topic to be examined. The current thought and discussion in DoD Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA) doctrine is that the military cannot be the lead agency in homelandsecurity missions needs to be reexamined.

With the draw down of U.S. forces from the wars in the Iraq and Afghanistan, the military will need to find an increased role in homeland security missions to augment their Homeland Defense mission and maintain Congressional funding (WRSA emphasis added). With over ten years of experience in stability operations and the current legal exceptions to the PCA,the author does not see a reason the military could not function in a law enforcementcapacity in joint operations with civil law enforcement authorities or as a lead federal agency with the appropriate training and oversight to project civil authority into the United States’ ungoverned spaces…

Woe unto those who get what they want.

  1. Are you kidding me? The author of this holds an office? By God, I think we’ve found the line in the sand, and this moron drew it all on his own.

    -fenris-

    • The bigger question is how this bastard was able to project this crap upon the Army War College at Carlisle, PA ?

      DAN III

      • Not War College, Command and General Staff College, Leavenworth, KS.

        Which is where he belongs, but not at CGSC, rather he should rot in the Federal Prison.

  2. Simply read the “recommendations for further research” on pages 56 and 57 to see where he really wants to go with his plan. Phrases like “how can the U.S. project civil authority into America’s uncontrolled spaces?” and ” The United States government could bring its authority to bear in a coordinated and unified manner circumventing jurisdictional boundaries and geographic restrictions” should throw down the red flags all over this land. Sounds more like the author is trying to create a need for new, high level, government job that he can slip into. And be sure, somehow, somewhere, our tax dollars are paying for this guy to get his Masters Degree with this “research”.

  3. Hence the rural councils. The Governor’s council. The whole weight of the “security” industry grousing for every scrap of a debased currency. Americorps National service. TSA check points. Just ad a Reichstag fire and a Herr Heydrich…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reinhard_Heydrich

    Now listen to the National Guard recruiting commercials. Come fight “wildfires”. http://padresteve.com/2012/07/11/unprecedented-unmerciful-and-unrelenting-harshness-terror-and-ideology-in-and-the-german-campaigns-in-poland-and-russia/

    Sound familiar?
    “By late 1940, German armies had swept through most of Western Europe. In 1941, Heydrich’s SD was given responsibility for carrying out the Nacht und Nebel (Night-and-Fog) decree. According to the decree, “persons endangering German security” were to be arrested in a maximally discreet way: “under the cover of night and fog”. People disappeared without a trace and no one was told of their whereabouts or their fate. For each prisoner, the SD was required to fill in a questionnaire that listed their personal information, their country of origin, and the details of their crimes against the Reich. This questionnaire was to be put into an envelope inscribed with a seal reading “Nacht und Nebel” and submitted to the Reich Main Security Office (RSHA). In the WVHA “Central Inmate File”, as in many camp files, these prisoners would be given a special “covert prisoner” code, as opposed to the code for POW, Felon, Jew, Gypsy, etc. The decree remained in effect after Heydrich’s death. The exact number of people who vanished under it has never been positively established, but it is estimated to be 7,000…

    The RSHA Deaths Head bully boys walk the earth again. Spiffy black uniforms and everything. Welkomen to the Fourth Reich mein Herr…

    Brought to you by Republicans, perfected by Demo-rats.

    Do you understand yet?

    “The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazi’s, didn’t die in vain…”

    Unless WE let them, here and now. To the men of the 313th Engineer battalion, 88th infantry Division, You prepared the way. We will take it from here.
    Sic Semper Tyrannis.

  4. Ummm….how about…NO!
    And fuck the “author.”
    Twice.

    Uh, I’m not too worried. I got that little cabin in the woods away from everything. It’s completely stocked, it’s got a garden, a water source, just everything you know. I could live there forever.

    Surely I’ll be all right there. Right? ;-)

    • Colorado Pete

      Sure…out there in that ‘uncontrolled space’…heheh. Watch out for swarms of bees. They won’t be bees.

    • Jimmy the Saint

      Well, some Eastern Europeans survived WWII, and some VC and mujahedin survived Vietnam and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, too.

      I guess you can go with “maybe”.

  6. So much for “supporting & defending the Constitution” This Officer should be reminded of the Oath he took. Certain Members of The Armed forces such as the Army Chief of Staff are pushing for Domestic missions already.

    • Jimmy the Saint

      “So much for “supporting & defending the Constitution””

      Yeah, but the modern Constitution is a living, flexible document that means whatever the government says it means.

  7. Welcome to the USSA, comrades. You will hardly notice the cameras and microphones in your homes and cars. It’s for the children.

  8. With all of Barry’s pending defense cutbacks, that pool of unemployed men and women will make for experienced TSA/DHS Stormtroopers. Tribe up and take a good look at your A/O.

  9. I have something for them. Something ugly.

    “Uncontrolled spaces”????
    Like there’s someplace in the USA that doesn’t already fall under the aegis of some county sheriff or state police somewhere? Or for that matter, the U.S. Marshalls Service for which this goon works?

    Oh wait, it’s that “control” thing. Sheriff’s Department or State Police don’t inflict “CONTROLLLLLLLLLLL”. Where in hell (oh yeah Aesop said the seventh circle) do these people come from?

    Well I can think of some “uncontrolled spaces” ALL these SS goons can “control”. A large valley out in the basin and range of Nevada, or perhaps the Great Basin in central Wyoming. Lots of nothing which is just begging to be “controlled”. Surrounded by an electrified concertina fence, an electrified moat, a minefield, and a 20-foot wall. Manned by defenders of liberty, each with a 7.62 minigun and 20,000 rounds of ammo.

    Then we let loose the packs of starving wolves.

    Five years ago I would have said “Un-frickin’-believeable”. No longer.

  12. I don’t think you can find a better illustration of the statist mindset: these people see the Constitution’s checks and balances as well as laws designed to limit the power of the Federal leviathan such as Posse Comitatus not as mechanisms to protect liberty, but as obstacles to the further application of centralized government power and control for which the statist believes loopholes or legal fictions should and will be found to enable that control.

    Hard to say how much of it is the inevitable bureaucratic need to self-justify and seek ever larger budgets, and how much of it is just the pure evil of lust for power, money and prestige.

    • Chuck, re:your last paragraph… that is a difference without a distinction.

      It’s all I need to know though. Along with all the similar indicators we’ve been seeing, can there be any doubt about their intentions?

      How many lines can the ever shifting sands stand?

  13. The was a field grade type in the La. National Guard who was ALSO a deuty US marshal. . They just did a change of command for him. wonder if that ball aint rolling already?

  14. Hounded? Shamed? Strongly mocked? Fart6s in his general direction????

    How about a good hanging?

    A congressional investigation? You mean like F&F? Benghazi? Please.

    See line three, above.

    • Aesop,

      The point you have so typically chosen to overlook/ignore/obfuscate/drench in sarcasm is that all legal remedies have been tried repeatedly for years now to no avail and they have been subverted, suborned and, now, openly mocked and ignored… just as you did with my remark.

      You show an unmistakable resemblance to our enemies when anyone has the temerity to disagree with your lofty pronouncements.

      Oh, and, to be sure, let’s go find another congresscritter to put on another endless and ineffective dog and pony show for the benefit of the ‘sheeple’… and Aesop.

      And do go and ‘occupy’ yourself, you arrogant, abrasive, bloviating, snide, supercilious waste of bandwidth.

    • What oughtsix said, plus this. What the hell is a “legal remedy” in an environment where those on the side of the Law–that is, its agents or representatives–are in complete violation of the highest Law of the Land?

      Never mind, I know—it’s another one of your damn fantasies.

      Get this. Words mean things. In this country at this time, there is NO SUCH THING as ANY “legal remedy.” There are only so-called remedies that people like to pretend are legal.

      • Hehehe! Thanks, Jim. I’m so tired of his one note opera. I’ve threatened to ignore him but I just can’t help it. He could have his views largely uncontested by me if he weren’t so… all that we’ve said he is.

        What a mean spirited little person. As the kids say, sucks to be him!

  15. I gotta wonder….Do any of the “students” present during this presentation ever question the “author” as to the Constitutionality of the material?

    Or do they just sit back and absorb it like good little automatons?

    • Semper Fi, 0321

      Walter, think back to the Corps. How many Occifers and NCO’s did you disagree with when sitting in a class? Even when we were in, (I’m VN era and after) they lied to us. And did we know that? We assumed that what we were being taught was right, the kids today are a lot dumber than we were, how would they know it was wrong when everyone else is doing it? Our schools have turned out the perfect little proles, perfect for the new upcoming jobs with DHS/Fedgov.

  16. The fact that we let it get to the point of that last Photo in the post should make us puke and turn in our man cards.
    We have stacked failure upon failure to the point where liberty minded individuals are seen as “nut cases” and outside of the norm.
    Yes to these statist and leftist turds we are the zombies.
    We just are not the slow mindless eaters, we are the fast moving animal like zombies.

    Fuck them. No mercy!
