In addition to playing a larger role in the Army's operational force, the National Guard is ramping up efforts to counter illegal drugs across the country.
"I suspect I speak for all of the states when I say 'we have a tremendous and incredible drug problem and in my area,'" Rep. Harold Rogers, R-Ky., said during a Wednesday hearing before the House Appropriations Committee's Defense Subcommittee.
"The Guard has had a great program to eradicate marijuana in the remote hills of Appalachia where apparently it's a great climate for the growth of marijuana," he said. "They had eradicated 13 million marijuana plants; they have seized tons of marijuana, illegal weapons and so forth all to the tune of $25 billion."
Despite a grassroots effort to legalize marijuana, illegal marijuana in Kentucky is grown under high-tension electric wires, Rogers said, describing how the practice makes it difficult to prove who owns it and also hinders helicopter access because of the power lines.
"I have been on a couple of these missions where they fly into a very remote area of mountains. The troopers have to rappel down a rope and cut the marijuana, put it in a big bag put it over the their shoulder and are picked up by the helicopter and carried 50 miles dangling 100 feet from below a helicopter -- very dangerous work but very productive," Roger said.
Rogers then asked General Joseph L. Lengyel, chief of the National Guard Bureau, "do you see that continuing and what can we do to help you see that?
Lengyel the committee for the $234 million the Guard recently received for the counter-drug program. The funding helps the Guard work with law enforcement to "detect, disrupt and curtail illegal drug activities in every state," Lengyel said.
"I consider the counter-drug program a huge part of the homeland security mission and homeland support mission that we do," Lengyel told lawmakers.
"I think as you look across the nation, every state's program is individually tailored for the requirements that they have inside their state."
The Guard relies on the Threat-Based Resource Model to decide how much money each state receives for its counter-drug needs, Lengyel said, who added that "states use those funds and develops their own plan ... so I want to continue to support that."
The $234 million "has not only facilitated a robust liaison with law enforcement, the ... additional schools that it funded has allowed us to build additional capacity to fight this this drug issue whether it is marijuana or opioids or heroin or synthetics," Lengyel said. "And we all know that significant toll that it has taken on our nation."
Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, asked Lengyel "Are you starting to make a distinction in prioritization in opiates versus marijuana?
Lengyel conceded that "because of the rise and the devastating effects of the opiate piece, it had to take on a more important role in the Threat-Base Resource Model ... and we are going to apply the right authority to it."





VA Governor On Charlottesville: White Race Militias Had 'Better' Guns Than Police- Needed Federal troops to combat them.

Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe defended the actions taken Saturday by state and local law enforcement in response to clashes between white nationalist protesters and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, VA.
McAuliffe told The New York Times in an impromptu street interview Sunday morning that police in Charlottesville did their best considering the circumstances. 
"It's easy to criticize, but I can tell you this, 80% of the people here had semiautomatic weapons," McAuliffe said.
Law enforcement in Charlottesville have received widespread criticism from counterprotesters, bystanders, and participants of the white nationalist "Unite The Right" rally. Many called the police's handling of the event hands-off, often appearing outnumbered and waiting too long to break up skirmishes between protesters and counter-protesters. 
Former police officials in New York and Philadelphia made similar criticisms that, despite a large mobilization of law enforcement personnel  -- Charlottesville's mayor put the number at 1,000 -- police failed to separate the clashing factions at the beginning of the event, allowing the violence to quickly grow out of hand. 
Though McAuliffe strongly commended law enforcement's handling of the event, he appeared to suggest that police were unprepared for who actually showed up to the rally.
"You saw the militia walking down the street, you would have thought they were an army ... I was just talking to the State Police upstairs; [the militia members] had better equipment than our State Police had," McAuliffe said. "And yet not a shot was fired, zero property damage." 
McAuliffe's response that law enforcement's handling of the violence was successful because there were no bullets fired and "zero property damage" would appear to ignore that dozens were left injured and a 32-year-old woman, Heather Heyer, was killed when an apparent white supremacist plowed his car into a crowd.
McAuliffe, for his part, suggested that Heyer's death couldn't have been prevented.
"You can't stop some crazy guy who came here from Ohio and used his car as a weapon. He is a terrorist," he said.
At about 10 a.m. today, at one of countless such confrontations, an angry mob of white supremacists formed a battle line across from a group of counter-protesters, many of them older and gray-haired, who had gathered near a church parking lot. On command from their leader, the young men charged and pummeled their ideological foes with abandon. One woman was hurled to the pavement, and the blood from her bruised head was instantly visible.
Standing nearby, an assortment of Virginia State Police troopers and Charlottesville police wearing protective gear watched silently from behind an array of metal barricades -- and did nothing.
It was a scene that played out over and over in Charlottesville ..
