All these unprecedented military exercises in our urban areas, are they even legal?*
Someone like you and me, a concerned (sovereign) citizen of the USA, took the bull by the horns to collect and collate the published accounts of them.
They are so pervasive that it looks less and less like training exercises for the purpose of letting our military become familiar with operating in urban areas overseas. It has begun, by the signature of the behaviors themselves, to seem more and more like exercises for the following purposes.
- Make actual military operations within the United States seem more “normal” to our own, patriotically motivated military personnel.
- Record the names of those in military or police services, or in other government positions, who question this behavior, or who are noted to have qualms, or object vs. those who are gung-ho for it. Perform profiling and psychographic studies, based upon this information.
- Familiarize our military of the ins and outs of operations specific to each “urban zone” city in our nation.
- Condition American citizens of all kinds to the “new normal” of our military operating for the sake of authoritarian government, against our people (especially patriot activists) who may be labeled “suspected terrorists” – by fiat, without our 4th and 14th Amendment rights, of protection against unreasonable search and seizure, of habeas corpus, and due process overall (see NDAA 2012 and 2013 and these reports in Gulag Bound: A, which includes a report of Obama administration indoctrination of the traits of a suspected terrorist, plus B and C, and in one of numerous examples, in NetworkWorld, Eric Holder’s FBI brochure propagating their traits of a suspected terrorist: D).
- Prepare for massive firearm confiscations and the resultant resistance from the actually patriotic Americans, ready, willing, and able to obey the mandate of the Declaration of Independence and the purpose of the 2nd Amendment: to if necessary, “throw off” government which has become “despotism,” by means of free, “well regulated militias.”
- Provoke our freely armed patriots who heed the stern mandate of our Declaration and Constitution as referred in #4, to be engaged in free, well-regulated militias (and/or, whatever few kooks are really out there) into taking action which could become, in turn, actionable by national or nationalized, anti-American forces (see Waco, Ruby Ridge, etc.).
- Could this be, too? To do #5 as a actual pretext for further false-flag attacks, which would give Obamunist/NWO led forces pretext for martial law. (We have written about false-flag ploys, here.)
- Test for repercussions and blow-back in general, right down to this article (see #2).
And to confirm just how it looks, those military exercises are, in at least some cases, being made jointly with police forces. It would be silly to think that even the Obamunist DHS would try to send our police overseas. They (our government) do purport something about a reason for some of this. They say it is for disaster preparation, nuclear war, for example – even as they target as “suspected terrorists” those “preppers” who prepare for disasters. “Go figure.”
So now, We the People have to do just that: go to the information and figure out what it means, together.
Here is the list in Facebook, compiled by my new friend, Nanette White, who publishes Michigan’s News & Views. Below it, we re-publish the Gary Franchi interview with Dr. Jim Garrow, of January 23rd, which attests to key military officers being asked whether or not they will fire on U.S. Citizens who refuse to give up their firearms.
What do you think about all this? So far there’s Harrisburg, Houston, Minneapolis, L.A., Miami, Chicago, Boston, Long Branch, Laredo, Galveston, Scottsdale, Worcester, Denver, St. Paul, Portsmouth, and St. Louis.

U.S. Military, Miami Police Staged An Urban Training Exercise With Diving Blackhawks & Machine Gun Fire:
“Gun control advocates say deadly assault weapons have no business being on the streets of America.
But, apparently, those same people who would restrict you of your ability to defend yourself have no objections to fully loaded military gunships flying over American population centers…”

Obama to Top Brass: Will you fire on American Citizens? [GB: shown below]:
“World-renowned educator and human rights activist Jim Garrow says that the source, man regarded as “one of America’s foremost military heroes,” told him that President Obama is using a new litmus test for “determining who will stay and who must go” among top-ranked military leaders. That test is whether they will fire on US citizens or not. Garrow says that his source made the disclosure in order to “sound the alarm” over the administration’s plans…” https://www.youtube.com/

I found this on [Pittsburgh] PA, but it looks to be more normal to me.. no blackhawks, etc.
And I will add a related, goose-bumping item that just bubbled up, as I have been preparing this article:
“Exposed: Obama’s Ploy to Disarm Veterans Obama’s Deputized Doctors to Label Veterans Mentally Unfit to Own a Gun,” January 31, at gopthedailydose.com
The world has become one monstrous economic bubble bath right now. At any moment the super-corrupt, global central banking system has any number of means of setting off a bubble-breaking chain reaction that would potentially throw the United States of America and much of the world into chaos. It is labeled “mutually assured economic destruction,” by the intelligentsia of the elite.
History in the 20th Century and at least as far back as the Illuminist-seminal French Revolution has shown us that Marxists/fascists (including the likes of front man, George Soros) need massive “disruption,” as Frances Fox Piven calls it, in order to foment their revolutions. Marxism is not called “conflict theory” in vain and the hungrier, more desperate, and more embittered their manipulated revolutionary “proletariat,” the better. And to borrow a phrase from Hillary Clinton, “what difference [would] it make,” whether the ensuing martial law is feigned to be on the side of the rioters, as it is in a classic Marxist revolution, or those seeking security from them, as it might be seen in a more fascistic revolution? Either way, the end result is the same: the iron-fisted grip of collectivist authoritarianism.
The reader may need to take a deep breath for more reasons than one. A long question is coming, next.
Without this being quite a complete “big picture” list…
- the titanic purchasing of rifle shells, including hollow point bullets (outlawed for war, by the Geneva Convention) by the DHS and other internal, federal government agencies
- NDAA 2012/2013
- the ever growing amoeba of the Department of Homeland Security as a centralized police force operating under “Global Governance 2025“
- our police communities being informed that constitutionalist patriots are suspected terrorists while Islamists are not
- the operant conditioning of the TSA’s scan/grope ops at airports
- the TSA’s VIPR teams, DHS’ own SWAT
- the formation of the razor-wired FEMA camps
- the recruitment of personnel to staff such camps and of re-education specialists for internment camps
- new laws for massive federal confiscation of water, food, and lines of their distribution, by the simple act of declaring an emergency
- all the further and massive “continuity of government” plans and executions of Rex 84
- the rise of Agenda 21 and ICLEI ops, with smart meters and the smart grid
- Internet, telephone, and camera surveillance, and related technocracy
- surveillance drones flying overhead, in our own nation
- and the evermore astounding power grabs of overwhelmingly burdensome legislation and executive orders, including but much, much more than “just” Obamacare, or the administration’s determination not to enforce border, citizenship, residence regulations – all designed to collapse our free but increasingly undermined “welfare” society of its own weight, according to the Marxist plan published by Cloward and Piven in The Nation, in 1966 — while instilling the “structure” of Structural Marxism through the same and related measures (remember the naming of all those quiet Obama White House Czars?)
…it all points in what direction, from where we have been for 237 years?
State control is the goal and as is demonstrated in China and Russia, the statist corporatism which was the heart of the 20th Century’s fascism is now the neo in neo-Marxism. Whether one calls it Marxofascism, or globalist crony capitalism, or the “New World Order” as communist collaborator, John Kerry did in his Secretary of State confirmation hearings, or as Barack Obama referred in his second inaugural, a bridge from the Declaration principle (of popular sovereignty and subservient government) into collectivism… there is only one direction to go, from freedom.
And now, what direction does Nanette’s list indicate?
And any family and friends in our military and law enforcement services – are we asking them if they are Oath Keepers?
The same with veterans, are we asking them if they know about Veteran Defenders of America, for instance?
And are we informing our neighbors, individually, or organizationally?
And how about that Second Amendment and its first six words?
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
More about that, soon.
One last thought before the video – is this part of the reason for the out-of-the-blue announcement of women now being readied for combat situations? Are the Obamunists preparing to prop up America’s own young ladies to be among those facing or aggressing upon our very citizens? Just think of the ramifications, there. Consider the warped mentality of this regime.
