Skip to comments.Beck & the Military Weigh in on Army’s Public Training Exercises
Posted on 07/10/2012 12:00:50 PM PDT by tutstar
A couple weeks ago, the Blaze alerted you to the fact that the Army Reserves was conducting a training with armored vehicles on the residential streets and highways in St. Louis, Mo. Local news stations reported the story to residents saying they shouldnt be alarmed should they see this training taking place.
Army specialists from Fort Meade were brought to train the 354th MP company in St. Louis on what one of the local reporters called drivers ed for the military. Some, like Brandon Smith from Alt-Market in a guest post to the online publication Zero Hedge, wondered why this training was being conducted in public at all, especially given the fact that the military has some training facilities that model towns just without residents around.
So, why is the army conducting these trainings in public? Glenn Beck on GBTV soon to be The Blaze TV posed this question Monday.
With an exception of parades, have you ever seen military humvees driving through your streets? Let me ask again. Have you ever seen them perform military exercises in the streets? Nope, Beck said.

Related to the military dealing with civilian unrest thread from a few days ago.
Isn’t it strange that we don’t hear the weeping and knashing of teeth from the rent-a-mobs or the MSM concerning this? Put this on the list of watch and wait.
Could they be”prepping”for Martial Law??????????????????
I guess they’re preparing for November....
I heard it was called
“Operation Don’t You Dare Fight Back, Whitey”
It’s like building up a tolerance for alcohol.
Keep doing it and you become used to it. They’re getting those people used to seeing military vehicles on the streets, so when the time comes they won’t be adverse to seeing them.
I wish someone would start posting the geo locations for these detainment camps when they’re discovered. We need to compile a comprehensive list, with geo markers.
Letter Exposes Plan to Train Combat Nurses on US Soil
letter from a local whistleblower within St. Louis, MO who we will refer to as Andrew Jackson. His mother, who is a nurse, was sent this letter by the Army in hopes of recruiting RNs to serve. The disturbing, but subtle, facts spelled out in the letter is this:
Stay locally (in St. Louis)
Learn how to drive a humvee
Learn how to fire a gun
Learn map reading
Learn combat skills
I wish someone would start posting the geo locations for these detainment camps when theyre discovered................................................ Did Cheney and Bush turn them over to the new administration? According to the Libs I believe they were located up in Montana or Idaho somewhere and the only way in was in a black helicopter or secret underground rail route. I wonder if they replaced Bush and Cheney’s staff? :)
It’s ok for a dem to do it. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was carrying on on twitter about Romney having a Swiss bank account. She has funds invested in Swiss & and Indian bank. They can do whatever they want but if a conservative does it then it’s a problem.
I was being series. This is hugh. Seriously

yep, just like getting used to being groped
Where would they train?
There is an F-16 unit in San Antonio, TX, and THEY train in US airspace. We have Army posts on US soil and they train on US soil. Navy bases on US soil and they conduct training in US waters. . .etc. . .you get the point.
The ad at the link is an ad for joining the Reserves. . .after basic, train on weekends near your home. Same recruiting draw the Guard and Reserves have been using since time began.
This is nothing to get hyped about, though I know many will without considering the role of the Guard and Reserves.
That is the National Defense Authorization Act, you know, the entire Defense budget, covers everything, from uniforms to nuclear weapons and everything in between.
