It’s bad enough the Pentagon’s 2010 directive opens the doors for the Obama administration to order the military to take up force against American citizens. But worse is a little-known Department of Defense policy that allows the president or the Secretary of Defense to activate the military on U.S. soil – for the likes of a flu epidemic.
Retired military officers deeply involved in the climate change movement — and some in companies positioned to profit from it — spearheaded an alarmist global warming report this month that calls on the Defense Department to ramp up spending on what it calls a man-made problem.
Lawmakers say they fear the Defense Department has found a new way to drum sexual assault victims out of the service: by diagnosing adjustment disorder and having them discharged from the military.
The Department of Defense says it's found no sign that sexual assault allegations within the Alaska National Guard were covered up.
