How obscure, today is Friday the 13th, 2009.  A day of superstition that bad luck may befall you.  Wiki has all sorts of stuff on the day at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friday_the_13th

The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia, a word derived from the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή), meaning Friday, and dekatreís (δεκατρείς), meaning thirteen, attached to phobía (φοβία). writes http://mistermonopoly.blogspot.com/2009/11/friday-13th-links-paraskevidekatriaphob.html 

Turning to politics, White House Counsel Greg Craig will resign later today and will be replaced by Robert Bauer, campaign counsel, ethics expert, husband of Anita Dunn reports George Stephanopoulis via Twitter. http://twitter.com/GStephanopoulos

Bauer is Chair of the Political Law Group of Perkins Coie LLP.  He served as the Obama campaign’s general counsel and became the President’s private lawyer after the election. He is married to Anita Dunn, Obama’s outgoing — and exiting — communications director. http://politics.theatlantic.com/2009/11/white_house_counsel_gregory_craig_1.php

Bauer book on campaign reform can be found via  http://www.amazon.com/More-Soft-Money-Hard-Law/dp/1879650096#noop writes at the blog http://www.moresoftmoneyhardlaw.com/ to give you an insight on his thoughts.

Our thought is that Bauer is tired of defending Obama from the birthers and tea baggers.  Perhaps President Obama doesn’t want to jinx himself by naming his new personal legal council on Friday the 13th.

Could civil unrest and Martial Law really come to The  U.S. in light of the Flu Pandemic or some other catastrophe?

This ad comes to us from the folks at MTV from a few years ago.  Why MTV, and why purpose did the commercial have?  Certainly there are better means to educate society about the Holocaust than this. 

Are the producers trying to issue a sort of public service announcement in advance of H.R. 675?  http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h675/text  Sec. 1585b of the  bill would  amend Title 10 of US Code to extends to civilian employees of the Department of Defense the authority to execute warrants, make arrests, and carry firearms for any offense against the U.S.  Is this just another loophole to create more federal authority and a federal police force? 

Remember The Posse Comitatus Act? It is supposed to limit the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement, but it has been abandoned  for all intents as we now have active duty troops stationed on our soil to defend us against each other.  Soldiers were so kind to even help out at the Boston Marathon.  Military deployment and collaboration with local law enforcement agents is now common place since incidents like Katrina,  with check and balances against corruption gone like the city of New Orleans was. 

The John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.R._5122_(2006)   changed federal law so that a Governor of a state was  no longer the sole commander in chief of their state’s National Guard, a direct violation of Article I, Section 10 and Clause 3 of the Constitution. It also allowed the President to declare a public emergency and station the military anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities. It was repealed, but the Insurrection Act remains in its place amended to state:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insurrection_Act#Repeal_of_amendments:

The original wording of the Act required the conditions as worded in Paragraph (2), above, to be met as the result of

insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy

The new wording of the Act, as amended, still requires the same conditions as worded in Paragraph (2), above, but those conditions could, after the changes, also be a result of

domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of maintaining public order.
natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition

Let me adjust my antenna. A Public Health Emergency?  As in WHO declaring a Pandemic and in the U.S. “Government officials have declared a public health emergency in connection with the swine flu outbreak that has killed dozens in Mexico and sickened 20 in the U.S., said the nation’s director of Homeland Security Sunday.” http://thisweekwithbarackobama.blogspot.com/2009/04/state-of-emergency-swine-flu-video.html

DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce Defense Directive 1404.10 (read  PDF ) promises exactly what President Obama said, “”We cannot continue to rely only 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.” http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2008/10/obama-plans-paramilitary-force-for.html

A new level of leadership emerged within the U.S. Army, with the June 5 promotion of Mr. Jim Scofield as the first Defense Intelligence Senior Level Special Advisor…” As part of the civilian personnel intelligence management system, he is equivalent to a brigadier general, so now you have to say ‘Mr.’ Scofield,” she said.”DISL are recognized leaders in their field and in their specialty. This position will allow him to be involved in planning and coordinating Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions and responsibilities not only for the Army, but theater-wide.” http://www.army.mil/-news/2009/06/09/22375-usarpac-civilian-workforce-climbs-as-scofield-is-promoted-to-disl/

Moving on up with expanded powers. Congrats.  There are a myriad of conspiracies just like this MTV video with Fema Trains ready to take non conformists away to Fema Camps. Alex Jones http://www.infowars.com/ has whole list of topics on the issue of citizen rights and the government taking away those rights.

Am I finally too old to not want my MTV anymore or just wise to the possibilities?  http://www.mtv.com/index.jhtml?extcmp=SEO_SSP_Y
