The Military: Coming Soon To Your Hometown

Remember when Obama told college graduates during his commencement address that they should "reject the voices" that "warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner"?

The U.S. military recently granted itself the authority to deploy troops in American cities without presidential or local approval.
In a move that makes clear the direction that our country is increasingly heading towards, the Department of Defense has published an update to a US code that outlines military power during civil unrest.

The code, ““Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies,” was slightly altered during a May 13th update which now allows the military to unilaterally declare martial law without presidential approval.

Multiple sections of the code outline plans and policies for a martial law scenario and should be considered a must read for any American worried about their freedoms in what has become a hostile American police state.

The rule seems to actually contradict itself, in one part claiming that the military can only be used during extreme circumstances with Presidential approval and then, in an updated part of the code, declaring that the military can put troops on the streets without approval from the president or local law enforcement.
At this point, tyranny isn't lurking around the corner: it's skullfreaking you in the face!

Tyranny? What tyranny?!?!
