Martial Law: Elite Marines called to active duty 10/19/2019

The Reserve Component of the Marines has been called to active duty October 19, 2019 “to provide assistance in response to a disaster or emergency.” https://www.marines.mil/News/Messages/Messages-Display/Article/1979422/manpower-guidance-for-activation-and-deactivation-of-reserve-component-rc-marin


This was an exercise in futility apparently, so I'm deleting the text. Live and learn.


I do have a copy saved to my documents as I did some very good research!

Re: Martial Law: Elite Marines called to active duty 10/19/2019

Cecile, I don't think this means what you think it means. Being on active duty simply means that members are full time in the service, vs. being in the reserves. Your attachment was hard to decipher but I read it to mean that marines can be called to deal with national emergencies, a job usually relegated to the state national guards.

For example, one paragraph in your link stated:

Quote:
if a Governor requests Federal assistance in responding to a major disaster or emergency (as those terms are defined in §102 of REF C) the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) may, without the consent of the member affected, order any unit, and any member not assigned to a unit organized to serve as a unit, of the Marine Corps Reserve to active duty for a continuous period of not more than 120 days to respond to the Governor’s request.
This just says that members of the Marine Corps reserves can be called up for active duty if a state governor needs extra help in dealing with something like a devastating hurricane.

This is not martial law.

The sky is not falling.

Waybread, I didn't realize that that's what a call to active duty meant. I'm happy to delete it if you can tell me how.

BTW I did say that this was to protect people's rights, etc. in an emergency contrary to what fearmongers believe. It was not my intent to convey the sky is falling attitude. Quite the opposite actually.

It was a good learning experience to do the work up in any case.

Thanks.
Cecile

You should be able to delete your post by clicking on "edit" and then probably "go advanced." To remove the thread title, contact a moderator: Osamenor or Tim Wilson.

Thanks, Waybread. I managed to delete the opus, and quite an opus it was too.

Cecile.

I could see that!

But let's hope that the US never gets to a point where we need it.

So far as I know, the US Constitution and laws do not allow for martial law. This isn't to say that a rogue president, as Commander in Chief, couldn't try something. Trump has almost threatened as much. But then we have all of the gun rights advocates armed to the teeth in the event of such a scenario.

I don't think he's that crazy, even though solar arc Uranus is currently pinging on his Mars-ascendant conjunction.
