Just What Does Obama Mean by This

In a recent speech Obama spoke of the need for a "civilian national security force" but just what would they do?

We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.

Would this be the Obamassiah's "brownshirts" used to crack down on those that disagree with him and his policies? The comment comes at 16:45 in this July 2nd speech in Colorado.

His record on crime is not very good so I doubt they would be going after the gangbangers that terrorize gun free Chicago, DC, LA and other major cities. He is for open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens so they won't be going after them, since he opined to La Raza that ICE was terrorizing neighborhoods.

Cap'n Ed has much more at Hotair and asks some more pertinent questions.
Obama needs to clarify what he means by “civilian national security force”, and how it would be funded. After all, we have a panoply of federal security agencies already: FBI, BATF, DEA, and more, plus the National Guard on the state level. Where would Obama get the money to fund it at the same level as the Pentagon? What would its mission be, and where would it get its authority? What would be the lines of jurisdiction?

I thought we already had a civilian security force in the form of armed citizens protected by the 2nd Amendment and our right to keep and bear arms. It sounds like a massive expansion of government and a federal employment gambit to me. This is on top of his requirement that all high school and college students do a required amount of community service for free in order to graduate, 50 hours a year for high school and 100 hours a year for college, in other words, mandatory volunteerism or slavery. I think Obama has no idea what the hell he is talking about anymore. This guy is clearly out of his liberal faculty lounge league when on the national stage.

Look, even he doesn't know. It just sounded good and appeals to the leftists, liberals and others who loathe our Armed Forces, yet bask in the freedom they've provided.
