Picture of US Troops Training Russian Soldiers at Colorado At Fort Carson in 2012
Remember last year when Obama promised the Russians to take care of them AFTER the election. He is now following through.
As part of a deal signed last week in Washington DC between the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and FEMA, Russian officials will provide “security at mass events” in the United States, a scenario that won’t sit well with Americans wary of foreign assets operating on US soil.
According to a press release by the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense and Emergencies, US and Russian officials met on June 25 at the 17th Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations.
In addition to agreeing with FEMA to “exchange experts during joint rescue operations in major disasters,” the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry will also be providing “security at mass events” in the United States.
If called on by FEMA, Russian troops could respond to the next "emergency", such as wild fire, tornado, flood, etc.
An unsettling report prepared by the Emergencies Ministry (EMERCOM) circulating in the Kremlin today on the just completed talks between Russia and the United States in Washington D.C. says that the Obama regime has requested at least 15,000 Russian troops trained in disaster relief and “crowd functions” [i.e. riot control] be pre-positioned to respond to FEMA Region III during an unspecified “upcoming” disaster.
This suggests that events designated as “National Special Security Events” by the Department of Homeland Security, which include the Super Bowl, international summits such as the G8 and presidential inaugurations, will now rely partly on Russian authorities to provide security.
The meeting last week also agreed on the conclusion that US and Russian emergency authorities will increase their co-operation, “in order to respond efficiently to all kinds of disasters.”
The use of foreign troops or other officials in a law enforcement capacity providing “security” inside the United States is illegal under Posse Comitatus. Capt. William Geddes of the U.S. Army Reserve acknowledged last year that it is against federal law to use US troops to conduct police patrols, despite the fact that such occurrences are becoming increasingly common. The use of foreign troops is an even more clear cut violation of Posse Comitatus.
Last year we reported on how Russian troops were invited to the US as part of a Fort Carson, Colorado drill focused around anti-terror training. Aside from learning how to target terrorists in America, the Russian soldiers were also out in the local community attending a baseball game in Colorado Springs.

As Mac Slavo writes, “Rumors have circulated for years about the possibility of foreign troops being deployed on U.S. soil in the event of a widespread declaration of a national emergency. For quite some time there have been anecdotal reports to support the claim that the U.N., Russia and other nations would be used in a policing capacity should some critical event befall our nation.”
“The fear should such a scenario take place has been that these soldiers would act under the banner of their own flags, ignoring the fundamental protections afforded to our citizens, leaving Americans under the jurisdiction of people who don’t speak our language or respect our fundamental rights to self defense, to be secure in our homes, and to be presumed innocent in the eyes of the law.”
Concerns about foreign troops being used on US soil have lingered ever since the release of State Department Publication 7277, which is a blueprint for the harmonization of US and Russian forces under a framework of United Nations-led global government.
Back in 2008 it was also reported that US and Canadian authorities had signed an agreement that would pave the way to using each other’s militaries on both sides of the border “during an emergency”.
Alex Jones has documented foreign troops being trained on U.S. soil to deal with “insurgents” since the late 1990′s as part of “urban warfare drills”.
Back in July 2010, our reporters covered the Operation Vigilant Guard exercises in Chicago which involved Polish troops training alongside U.S. National Guard troops in drills focused around raiding terrorists and drug dealers.
According to SFC Mark Ballard of the Illinois National Guard, the Polish forces were “integrating into some of the civil military units that are participating in this exercise” as part of Illinois’ partnership with the Republic of Poland, a relationship based around “integrative training” and blending military and civilian forces in the event of a national emergency, as well as making this process of integration with foreign troops more “visible”.
The EMERCOM report says the Russian troops will be trained in disaster and emergency preparedness, but it says absolutely nothing about them operating in FEMA III. They’ll be here for two weeks, being trained, and then they’ll go back home. Some of our own boys will be trained in Russia as well. As far as I can see, this is only an exchange of tactics and ideas, where both countries have something to learn, and until I see a source indicating that Russian troops will police American soil, I’m inclined to believe this is nothing more than sensationalist hype. I would be much obliged if anyone who knows more about this could provide more information.
Do you think other countries feel the same outrage at having American troops policing the streets of their country ?
I believe in OUR Country… OUR Soil.. We are a Nation … NOT an EMPIRE. I believe in a strong Military but we need to lead by example not force our ways on the world.
Each of us is responsible for what OUR government does. I am responsible for this mess… as are YOU … doing nothing is still making a choice. We DO have the power to effect change. But it requires WILL to do REAL things that change what is. Ranting is fine… but REAL action is needed to take back our OVERLY LARGE out of control government… Some like to blame OBAMA… Some like to blame politicians.. but ultimately YOU and I are the ones that have let our freedoms go down the drain by not standing up for what is right. This FEMA thing is just one example of how far off track our government has gotten.
Our father’s and their fathers gave their lives as our soldiers do today to grant us our freedom… We need to honor them by doing what is right and get involved in our government. For those of you that ARE I say BRAVO !!!… LETS GET EM !!! It’s time to take our nation back… not just rant. For those that are just venting… I say get off your ass and write a letter…go to a town meeting.. join a group and add your voice to effect change…. DO SOMETHING ! Something real.
God bless America …cause we surely need it.
And anyone who supports it, like was said about the war on Terrorism… well, we know what side you’re on. I would go so far as to say, if I were Putin, I’d have to let the big “O” know that placing troops in the US for any reason, would not be a good venture, until the politicians got their act together.
To Segway on the selling out of our security… one need go no further than the push to disarm our nuclear deterrent. I would caution Americans to note that once our capability to ensure our security is gone, we will be knee deep in war. Watch the timing… the exodus of the elite and politicians. This will be a tell tale sign of what many have been warning of.
