Operation Garden Plot

G. The Department of Defense Civil Disturbance Plans

Formerly, DoD’s Civil Disturbance Operations (CDO) plan was known as “GARDEN PLOT.” Since the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and USNORTHCOM however, DoD has delegated to geographic combatant commanders responsibility for developing CDO Contingency Plans (CONPLANs). These geographic commanders’ CONPLANs provide guidance and direction for planning, coordinating, and executing military operations during domestic civil disturbances.

1. Civil Disturbance Operations Mission

Broadly stated, the CDO mission assists civil authorities in restoring law and order in the United States and its territories.58 This mission statement, while not duplicating the language in the Insurrection Act allowing for the use of federal forces to “suppress” insurrection, provides wide latitude to the President to use federal forces to assist civil law enforcement in “restoring” law and order.

To Your Tents

1 Kings 12:16

King James Version (KJV)
16 So when all Israel saw that the king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: to your tents, O Israel: now see to thine own house, David. So Israel departed unto their tents.
We are like the tribes of Israel. 

The so called King of Judea has turned a deaf ear to our righteous grievances.

The time draws near to return to our tents and prepare.

Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution

While doing some research for a presentation my wife asked me to do for the district Baptist WMA (Women's Missionary Assoc) meeting that I was intrigued by Rev. Jonas Clark of Lexington.

He, and many like him during that time, are what we are in dire need of today in the churches of America. The preached from the pulpit; liberty, freedom, justice and according to the British....SEDITION.

This has led me through a maze of different articles and books on the Revolutionary War period.

I am now reading a book titled "Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution".  This book was published in 1864.  Headley covers most of the major men of the cloth who influenced the America's fight for freedom.

Jonas Clark was married to the cousin of John Hancock.  Hancock was a frequent guest at the Clark house and as such both had a great influence on each other.   Clark was the pastor of Lexington. it was he who put out the call to the green at Lexington.

When Paul Revere made his ride, it was to Clark's house as that is where Samuel Adams and John Hancock were staying.

One of the many patriots who birthed this nation.
