Oath Keepers

I just came across a most interesting www site. Oath Keepers. Here is how they describe themselves.

Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, veterans, peace officers, and firefighters who will fulfill the oath we swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.

Our motto is "Not on our watch!"
You know. I took that oath myself. I understand just how those guys feel. And I am with them. All the way.

Here is a list of ten orders they will refuse to obey.

1. We will NOT obey orders to disarm the American people.

2. We will NOT obey orders to conduct warrantless searches of the American people

3. We will NOT obey orders to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to military tribunal.

4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state.

5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty.

6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.

7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.

8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control."

9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies.

10.We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.
You know. I think our current President has bit off much more than he can chew.

We are getting our own American Schwarze Kapelle (Black Orchestra) only openly.

It does Obama no good to be Commander in Chief if the military will not follow his orders. I'm not sure the people who put Obama in the White House understood exactly what they were biting off when they made their plans.

A reference to Oath Keepers in the comments to this Atlas Shrugs post Wanted: National Guard For "Internment" Position got me to look into Oath Keepers.

I'm IN!

I stood on the DMZ between disarmed, starving and criminally-abused people suffering under a socialist tyranny


the Free World (on our side of that terribly weaponized 'De-Militarized Zone')

I thought LONG and HARD about the meaning of that Oath... I'm in! I WILL DO ALL I CAN to defend the American people from enemies foreign AND DOMESTIC!

At Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler their motto is always "Remember Your Oath!" and this is the kind of thing they either started or will want to be part of. I'm gonna pass a link on over there for those good men and women - some of whom suffered under communist tyranny, came here, found a better life, served in our military, and now vow to keep their oath to the death. Thank you for this!

I have NO IDEA how I screwed that up - I was positive I typed in "Nice Doggie". Sorry, M. Simon :(
