What branch of the military, that is not really a branch of the military, or sometimes is a branch of the military, is not subject to Posse Comitatus like the military, but gets to act like the military and prosecute civilians under military law, and is now a part of the Department of Homeland Security?

If you said the Coast Guard, grab a cigar – you are absolutely correct!

14 U.S.C. § 2 authorizes the Coast Guard to enforce federal law. This authority is further defined in 14 U.S.C. § 89 which gives law enforcement powers to all Coast Guard commissioned officers, warrant officers, and petty officers. Unlike the other branches of the United States Armed Forces which are prevented from acting in a law enforcement capacity by the Posse Comitatus Act and Department of Defense policy, under 18 U.S.C. § 1385 the Coast Guard is exempt from and not subject to the restrictions of the Posse Comitatus Act.

Oh yeah, and remember S 787, the attempt by the Feds to grab water that falls off your roof onto the ground, and classify a dry creek bed as navigable waters? Navigable waters fall under the jurisdiction of the Coast Guard, which just so happens, is not subject to Posse Comitatus.
