DoD prepares for martial law in CONUS: Marines approved for activation on American soil

The Department of Defense issued an order signed by Brigadier General Daniel L. Shipley, Director, Manpower Plans and Policy on October 3, 2019, which authorizes the rapid activation of military forces to protect civil authorities in response to a “major disaster or emergency.”

The order titled Manpower Guidance for Activation and Deactivation of Reserve Component (RC) Marines Ordered to Active Duty ISO Defense Support of Civil Authorities details how Marines will be called to “active duty” upon orders from the U.S. Navy.

Shockingly, one of the first paragraphs details how it “will come with little warning.”

Requests for Federal assistance will come with little warning. As required, the Marine Corps must rapidly mobilize RC units and personnel IAW this MARADMIN in order to respond to threats in the Homeland.

Translated, this means that martial law may be coming sooner than later as the U.S. government appears to actually be anticipating nothing short of an impending civil war, asteroid strike, earthquake, tsunami, volcanic eruption, or some other type of similar but expected disaster scenario.

    For those not familiar with the National Response Plan (NRP), this looks like one of the prerequisites to invoke it. This plan is available on the DHS website. It is a chilling document that is not enacted lightly. The National Incident Management System (NIMS) is a subsidiary protocol that all State and some Metropolitan Emergency Managers have resident in their respective Emergency Operations Centers. NRP could conceivably be invoked for civil reasons, but is geared toward precipitous natural disasters. I hope I am wrong, but due to the political backlash of using this for political reasons, I must conclude that there is a credible natural disaster looming of which the public has not been advised.
    May YHVH bless America and give us pure hearts and steadfast spirits.
    Shalom, John

    I have been part of Defense Support to Civil Authority (DSCA) missions for over 10 years while on active duty. The vast majority of these missions are in response to natural disasters , not as a reaction to civil disruptions caused by human activity such as riots or protests. Also activating reserve units from any branch of the military would cause an order like this.
    Bottom line, nothing unusual about this.
