OathKeepersOath Keepers Receive Tip of National Guard Unit Stand-Down, Refusing to Answer Questionnaire Asking if They Would Use Lethal Force Against the American People


The below tip was posted on the official Oath Keepers Facebook Page by  user "Pat Lowe."  We are in the process of verifying this tip, so it is  as of yet unconfirmed, but we wanted you to be aware of it (it certainly  would be good news for a change!).  We will post and send out updates  as we confirm and verify.

I hope you enjoy this great news as I did when I was told.

OUTSTANDING!! I just left my neighbors house. Devon is with the National  Guard for this area. He just got home from a EDRE (emergency deployment  readiness exercise) at the armory. He said that during the exercise 3  companies of infantry were polled by questionare about the drill and  it's purpose. One of the questions was, will you as a member of the Nat.  Guard use lethal force against the American public if ordered to do so?  One of the men stepped forward and refused to take the poll and  explained that it was a moral judgement on his part and that he could  not do so. He then placed his weapon on the ground and fell in behind  the formation. Devon said it was like a waterfall, Every member layed  their weapons on the deck and fell in beside the one lone specialist.  This included ALL NCO's, STAFF NCO's and SENIOR NCO's. The only people  left in front of the original formation was 3 Capt's. 2 Lt's and the BN  Commander who was so upset he started having chest pains from yelling  and screaming about court martials and disbandment of the unit into  other units. Devon is a Mstr.Sgt and he went with his troops and told  them that he could not be prouder of any of them. He was floating while  he was telling me this. Maybe we have more than just hope on our side.  SEMPER FI. my thanks for the honor of being here Robert

I just heard from Devon. He was TX'd by his Plt LDR and advised that the  Specialist Who first layed down his weapon is being held in county jail  by the Bn CMDR, awaiting a hearing under the UCMJ. Devon couldn't get  any more info than that. I don't want to post the mans name until we  have more information. I am so upset by this that I am having chest  pains. How can they do this to one soldier and not them all. I will let  you know how things go. Think I might go lay down for a bit. SEMPER FI.

Gary Greene That is great, sort of, to hear. That the officers wont stand by THEIR oath is troubling. Where is this?

NOTE FROM STEWART RHODES:

Again, this is unconfirmed, and we are working on confirming it.    Please keep that in mind.  But this is certainly the kind of mass,  whole-unit stand-down that may well become necessary, especially in  light of the treason of the US Senate, which voted 93-7 to authorize  military detention and trial of U.S. citizens -- claiming the power to  apply the laws of war to the American people in the same way as they are  used on a conquered, enemy population, like Iraq or Afghanistan.    While National Guard units can, and have been used for riot control  without violating their oath, we suspect that this survey was asking  them about whether they would do something far worse than just keep the  peace during riots.   We will do our best to get to the bottom of this,  and provide all details once confirmed.

If accurate, this is reminiscent of the stand-down during Katrina by  SSGT Joshua May's Utah National Guard Unit, where the whole unit let  their commander know, in a peremptory refusal, that they would not  participate in any gun confiscation: Watch Video
