Obama's Civilian National Security Force

by Mark Moran

"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

The above quotation are Obama's words at a July 2nd, 2008 campaign stop in Colorado. What exactly does this "community agitator" have in mind for this country? On the surface, this seems like a fairly innocuous plan to organize a network of volunteers.

However, after watching the first 50 days of this radical in power, and the slew of executive orders enacted to fast-track his policy, I believe that this proclamation deserves a closer scrutiny.

It is no secret that Obama plans to run in campaign mode for the next four years. It is a technique that was perfected by the Clinton's, and it is effective for gathering public support for new initiatives. With the old Clinton hack Rahm Emanuel at the helm, we can be assured that he will be up to his old tricks in the Obama administration.

It is also no secret that Obama is much further to the left than Clinton. To better understand what Obama has planned, we have to take a trip back in history to another socialist that gained power when a country was in the midst of economic hardship.

Adolph Hitler was the head of the National Socialist Party in Germany in the 1930's. Although the liberal media tries to paint today's right-wing as Nazi's, the actual truth is that Hitler has more in common with Obama than he does with Timothy McVeigh.

Hitler knew that to have a dictatorship, you had to have 3 things. You had to have one person and one party in power, a climate of fear, and a means to discourage dissent.

We can see the parallels in the United States today. We have a far left president in power, backed by a liberal Senate majority. The current fear is the failing economy. In addition, you have a President that has signed a large number of Executive orders in his 50 days in office.

Obama shows no signs of moving towards the center. It is clear that his plan for a Civilian National Security Force is at best, an organized, nationwide collection of community agitators, and at worse, government jackboots that are organized to squash any dissent or protest against the administration.

If enacted, the Security Force will appear harmless at first, and will probably use incremental steps to fulfill a more sinister role in Obama's quest for socialism and absolute power. My hope is that the American people would never let this happen, but desperate times make a desperate people. His promise of government handouts and care from cradle to grave is a enticing offer for many in this country. It is my thought that he would have no problem finding street thugs to do his bidding for him. "It can't happen here" is a phrase we need removed from our collective psyche if we are to avoid any nefarious plots by this "Messiah".


  1. My sister voted for Obama and worked the phone banks and walked door to door. As he tries to marshall this same sort of effort to push his policies, I wonder how many of these well-intentioned people will participate in the same manner. My sister and I do not talk about the last 50 or so days. I can't tell what she is thinking. But she seems on edge when we talk - as if something is bothering her. She is an economics teacher and I know she is plugged into the current issues. I HOPE she is CHANGING her passion for Obama into something more realistic and rational. Hope and change... it's not just for Democrats anymore...

    Liked your article at AT - Take care!

  2. Lacegirl, Thanks for the nice comments, and I am glad you enjoyed my article at AT. I think alot of people that supported Obama are having misgivings about their decision. However, most people are slow to admit when they are wrong, due to pride and other factors. They will come around. Take care!

  3. I have regretted voting for Obama 60 days after he was in office.
