21Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the Lord will do great things.
22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.
23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.
32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call. Joel 2:21-32 KJV
Father, we come before You with praise for who You are! Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come! Hallelujah! Father, hear our prayers today for our nation and especially the families who lost loved ones in the tornadoes. Fix our hearts upon Oklahoma in prayer, knowing that Your goodness will show in the aftermath. Turn our nation's heart back to You, Jesus. We love You, we praise You and we trust You, Oh Lord. In Jesus glorious name we pray! Amen!

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 was originally established to protect American citizens from the federal use of military troops to enforce and execute the laws of the land unless expressly authorized by the Constitution or Congress. Since then, for over a century, this task has fallen upon local and federal law enforcement. But with the War on Terror taking center stage in the United States for the last decade, elements within the government have been working tirelessly to expand the mission of the US military on the domestic front.
First, they passed the Patriot Act, which gave the government sweeping new powers to categorize any individual as a terrorist, whether they are operating on foreign lands or here at home. In 2011, as America brought in the New Year, they signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act, which made it possible for American citizens who were categorized as domestic terrorists under the Patriot Act to be detained and imprisoned indefinitely without charge or trial.
Finally, last week we learned that, as President Obama came under fire for the many scandals rocking his administration, the government was quietly moving to give the Department of Defense unprecedented authority on U.S. soil, effectively nullifying Posse Comitatus.
Eric Blair of activist post writes:
First, the senate is debating an expansion of the already broad powers of the 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) so the U.S. can essentially engage any area in the world in the war on terror, including America. Which brings us to the second development: the Pentagon has recently granted itself police powers on American soil.
Assistant Secretary of Defense Michael Sheehan told Congress yesterday that the AUMF authorized the US military to operate on a worldwide battlefield from Boston to Pakistan. Sheehan emphasized that the Administration is authorized to put boots on the ground wherever the enemy chooses to base themselves, essentially ignoring the declaration of war clause in the US Constitution.
While Americans were distracted with three developing scandals pushed by both wings of the mainstream media, sinister developments were taking place behind closed doors. In essence, the US military has granted itself the power to deploy troops on the streets of America without approval from the President or Congress, and the AUMF, which was originally designed to target the terrorists responsible for 9/11, has been expanded to give the government authority to use military assets on the domestic front without a declaration from Congress.
Charlie McGrath of Wide Awake News explains:
Thanks to the hard work of Eric Blair at Activist Post we understand that Washington D.C. has been very busy eroding your freedom.
In fact, Senator Angus King went so far as to say that the hearing he was involved in was the most astonishing and disturbing hearing he has ever seen.
Even John McCain, war hawk John McCain, came out and said the government has gone way beyond its authority.
What are they talking about? The AUMF – Authorization to Use Military Force.
This piece of legislation that was put into place way back when we started the war on terror that is now turning from foreign enemies to YOU. Don’t be shocked by that, because you are on the list if you are a freedom minded, free thinker that believes in a Constitutional Republic.
They are changing the wording of this thing so that the military can be used on the streets of this country.
It’s not a conspiracy theory. It’s not some kind of a fancy fantasy that may come true down the road.
It is happening right now, in the guise of other news events that are not news events.
Even more terrifying is the fact that West Point has come out recently and said that you – if you have a theory that the federal government is trying to take over and implement a national police force – you could fall into the category of a domestic terrorist.
A domestic terrorist that can be dealt with by military force…
The only conspiracy here is what the government is telling us.
This legislation is real. The militarization of America is in full force. We are the targets.

THE MOST ASTOUNDING HEARING EVER!!
Does anyone believe that they left him high and dry that this was going to hit the fan?????
Think this sounds far fetched and paranoid? Don't bet on it. We need to DO SOMETHING! They will try to slip it right under our noses thru the Immigration bill!
Just two weeks ago, Barack Obama spoke before the graduating class at Ohio State University. He told them not to pay any attention to the voices that, for years, have told them that tyranny awaits just around the corner. He went on the tell them that his ”experiment” will make all things great for them as they go out into the world. Well, congratulations, Graduates!
The graduates are about to step into the real world. They are about to witness that, instead of the 7.6% unemployment the administration proclaims, the actual numbers are closer to 14% or higher. They will find that their eastern philosophy degree won’t quite go far enough to paying off their $100,000 student loan. In fact, since they probably won’t get hired for a job, they will probably find themselves around $100,000 short and residing with their parents. Butt, fear not; at least Mom and Dad can still claim them on their insurance for a while longer.
But, as far as Obama’s tyranny statement, It reminds me of the scene in “The Wizard of Oz” where Toto is messing with the curtain and pulls it aside. The “Wizard” tells everyone, “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.” Or, maybe, it’s more like “Star Wars” when Obiwan uses the Jedi Mind trick to convince the storm troopers that these aren’t the droids they are looking for. However, after the revelations of last week with regards to the IRS abuse of power or the trampling of the Constitution in the abuse of power by the Department of Justice (with Eric Holder at the helm, one wonders if perhaps it shouldn’t be called the Dept. of Injustice).
According to Duhaime’s Legal Dictionary, the definition of tyranny is as follows: A form of government other than a monarchy in which the formal written constitution is not adhered to and is broken by force of arms by a single person who then undertakes to rule as a monarch and primarily in his personal interests. This administration certainly regards the US Constitution as old-fashioned and “in their way” of progress. Don’t forget that last Sunday, White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer stated, before cameras, that “the law is irrelevant”. This doesn’t sound to me like a respect for existing law and especially not the US Constitution. But, what about “by force of arms”? Can the intimidation of the Internal Revenue Service be included or do we have to wait until the newly purchased armored personnel carriers of the Department of Homeland Security takes to the street?
According to the Free Online Dictionary, tyranny is a government in which a single ruler is vested with absolute power. Here again, this administration is awful close, if not already there. They have done everything possible to wrest the power from Congress and the Supreme Court and those institutions time after time let them.
Samuel Adams once said, “”The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received
them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men.”
After hearing that quote, how ironic do you find it that Obama is saying to ignore the voices that say tyranny is right around the corner? I can hear the kids in the back seat yelling, "Are we there yet?”
Your support keeps freedom alive!
