President Donald Trump has signed an executive order authorizing the
call-up of up to a million reserve military personnel in the army,
navy, air force and coast guard.
of Defense and Homeland Security – which is in charge of the Coast
Guard units not subordinated to the Navy – are now authorized to
order individual members and units of the Ready Reserve under their
jurisdiction, to “active duty not to exceed 24 consecutive months,”
Trump noted in the executive order.
number of mobilized reservists is “not to exceed 1,000,000 members
on active duty at any one time.” The Pentagon and Homeland Security
are supposed to ensure “appropriate consultation is undertaken with
relevant state officials” about using National Guard reserves
activated under this order.
its face, this is about the COVID-19 disease.
word I am getting is that we are either going to war, or going under
Martial Law. NOT SURE WHICH.
Christopher Greene tends to over-hype things but he may just be right on this.
