Obama allows armed foreign troops in America

July 01, 2013
As part of a deal signed last week in Washington DC between the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and FEMA, Russian officials will provide “security at mass events” in the United States, a scenario that won’t sit well with Americans wary of foreign assets operating on US soil.

According to a press release by the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense and Emergencies, US and Russian officials met on June 25 at the 17th Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations.

In addition to agreeing with FEMA to “exchange experts during joint rescue operations in major disasters,” the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry will also be providing “security at mass events” in the United States.

This suggests that events designated as “National Special Security Events” by the Department of Homeland Security, which include the Super Bowl, international summits such as the G8 and presidential inaugurations, will now rely partly on Russian authorities to provide security.

The meeting last week also agreed on the conclusion that US and Russian emergency authorities will increase their co-operation, “in order to respond efficiently to all kinds of disasters.”

The use of foreign troops or other officials in a law enforcement capacity providing “security” inside the United States is illegal under Posse Comitatus. Capt. William Geddes of the U.S. Army Reserve acknowledged last year that it is against federal law to use US troops to conduct police patrols, despite the fact that such occurrences are becoming increasingly common. The use of foreign troops is an even more clear cut violation of Posse Comitatus.

Last year we reported on how Russian troops were invited to the US as part of a Fort Carson, Colorado drill focused around anti-terror training. Aside from learning how to target terrorists in America, the Russian soldiers were also out in the local community attending a baseball game in Colorado Springs.

As Mac Slavo writes, “Rumors have circulated for years about the possibility of foreign troops being deployed on U.S. soil in the event of a widespread declaration of a national emergency. For quite some time there have been anecdotal reports to support the claim that the U.N., Russia and other nations would be used in a policing capacity should some critical event befall our nation.”

“The fear should such a scenario take place has been that these soldiers would act under the banner of their own flags, ignoring the fundamental protections afforded to our citizens, leaving Americans under the jurisdiction of people who don’t speak our language or respect our fundamental rights to self defense, to be secure in our homes, and to be presumed innocent in the eyes of the law.”

Concerns about foreign troops being used on US soil have lingered ever since the release of State Department Publication 7277, which is a blueprint for the harmonization of US and Russian forces under a framework of United Nations-led global government.

Back in 2008 it was also reported that US and Canadian authorities had signed an agreement that would pave the way to using each other’s militaries on both sides of the border “during an emergency”.

Alex Jones has documented foreign troops being trained on U.S. soil to deal with “insurgents” since the late 1990′s as part of “urban warfare drills”.

Back in July 2010, our reporters covered the Operation Vigilant Guard exercises in Chicago which involved Polish troops training alongside U.S. National Guard troops in drills focused around raiding terrorists and drug dealers.

According to SFC Mark Ballard of the Illinois National Guard, the Polish forces were “integrating into some of the civil military units that are participating in this exercise” as part of Illinois’ partnership with the Republic of Poland, a relationship based around “integrative training” and blending military and civilian forces in the event of a national emergency, as well as making this process of integration with foreign troops more “visible”.

    Unfathomable! What Next?
    July 02, 2013 | 11:02 AM

    Who agreed to this arrangement between our 'free country' and a Marxist entity? Were we citizens asked to vote on this evil arrangement?

    There are reports on the internet of Russian soldiers photographed driving DHS armored vehicles in Tennessee. If true, communists are actively here now. And probably armed. With the blessing of the US government.

    What does the USA have in common with Russia politically that would make any of our leaders think we can safely and securely bring their armed military for any purpose within our borders! "One World Government"! Under the United Nations!

    It reasonable to assume our government has agreed to send our soldiers to Russia to aid them in case of an emergency, is it not? When were we citizens going to be told that our sons and daughters in the military would be used this way?

    Today Egypt's citizens are fighting to regain democracy from the Muslim Brotherhood with no help from us. I suspect if it were up to 0bama we would be fighting to keep the Islamic dictator. Someday will 0bama send our precious troops to Russia to fight for communism by shooting up their freedom fighters???

    At this rate it would not be inconsistent to see headlines saying Americans are now obligated to send our tax money to Russia. Or North Korea - as communist countries they are ideological cousins. If we mutually support each other with the lives of our soldiers, can the exchange of money be far behind (never mind that the United States is bankrupt)?

    This concept makes the immigration debate look like child's play.

    Speak up, elected representatives, or better yet, speak up VOTERS! Or be known for the useless cowards we have become.

    Obama has stepped over that line...AGAIN AND AGAIN....
    July 02, 2013 | 06:32 PM

    To hell with Obama. To hell with every government idiot who is stupidly sitting by and NOT introducing Impeachment proceedings against Obama. Every....and I mean EVERY senator, congressman/woman, house of representative, judge, lawyer, and right down to the custodians should be screaming Impeachment over this one.

    Exchange of experience
    July 03, 2013 | 12:24 PM

    I think you misread the press release (or perhaps I did). It appears that they are exchanging "experience" information. I didn't see anything about armed Russian troops providing security in the US.

    "In addition, the parties approved of U.S.-Russian cooperation in this field in 2013-2014, which envisages exchange of experience including in monitoring and forecasting emergency situations, training of rescuers, development of mine-rescuing and provision of security at mass events."

    Russian military to stand guard over US events
    July 03, 2013 | 12:36 PM

    Is that like letting the fox guard the hen house? Or is it like your neighbor giving you a hand in time of need? Time tells all.

    Russian Troops on American Soil
    July 03, 2013 | 11:54 PM

    No, no, no. No Treaty was signed by
    a two-thirds majority of the Senate unless it was done secretly..which I could believe. This is a Treasonist Act and a flagrant violation of the Constitution. Our Constitution is the Civil Bible of America as declared such and signed by Herbert Hoover, Calvin Coolidge, Mrs Grover Cleveland (my second cousin) and other great leaders [

    The "Next" is Here! Tax Money to Russia!
    July 04, 2013 | 12:07 PM

    Unbelievable! Here is an excerpt:

    "In an analysis offered by the Capitalism Institute, an organization dedicated to advancing free markets and limited government, multiple problems with what it called the "corrupt" deal were highlighted. Among the examples cited in the piece about what was wrong with the contract: giving taxpayer money to Russia, sending more military hardware to the Afghan government, using no-bid contracts, and bypassing Congress.

    "That's right, this foreign aid is even worse than the aid being given to Egypt, because at least Egypt was buying U.S. hardware," the institute noted, referring to Obama's controversial decision to send fighter jets and tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood regime. "In the end, like almost all of our foreign policy, this was about power. It's not about liberty, or security, or the economy. It's about power brokering. We simply can't afford this any longer.

    People need to know that there's bipartisan anger over Obama taxing us to give to the Russians."

    Russians providing security
    July 07, 2013 | 03:20 PM

    We as a country have been heading down a road of self-destruction and this is the last straw for me. I will never be 'policed' or any other capacity of Russian troops on our soil. Why did I serve so many years and our ancestors must be asking the same question - only to have the Russians come on OUR soil and tell us what to do. Not happening.

    This is so blatantly ridiculous that I suggest we meet the Russians as they debark their transport with 15,000 Pole Dancers.

    Clifton Kyle, we are seeing this differently...

    "In addition, the parties approved of U.S.-Russian cooperation in this field in 2013-2014, which envisages exchange of experience including in monitoring and forecasting emergency situations, training of rescuers, development of mine-rescuing and provision of security at mass events."

    It's an exchange of experience, including on the monitoring of mass events. They are not actually serving as security. Again, it's possible that I am wrong, but I think Fox or Rush would have been all over this if that was the case.

    Russian troops on US soil.Why????
    April 09, 2014 | 03:33 PM

    We want the real truth on this and Congress had better start talking. This is illegal. Get these people off our land. Is this why obama wants our guns? He is afraid of what will happen when We the People have had enough. Guess what we have had enough. Our Congress is not going t help us so I think our Military will. Are we going to have to call them in? Congress think about it. You fix this or get the hell out of Congress and let someone who cares about America step in. This is a Treasious event. Im peach him now. Get him out of our WH and in jail or out of our Country. Do it now!
