Homeland Security and Military Vehicles Pictures I Captured while in Kentucky
chrisinmaryville.net ^ | 7/29/12 | Sherrie Questioning All

Posted on 07/29/2012 2:13:03 PM PDT by Nachum

I was in Kentucky this last week. While driving up there I came across at least 10 different trucks hauling military vehicles going North. I even came across them in the small town of Winchester Kentucky, which is where I took the first picture of a Homeland Security armored vehicle.

A friend who was driving up the other way through Bowling Green on Interstate 65 to Louisville said he saw about 20 trucks with military vehicles that same day going North too. I was going up Interstate 75 to Lexington Kentucky.

I then went on a small road to Winchester and passed this Homeland Security truck. I waited on the side of the road ahead of it to capture the picture. I was not able to get pictures of all the other military vehicles except for one. I saw many armored vehicles similar to Homeland Security vehicle on trucks but they did not say Homeland Security on them.

Coming back yesterday (Saturday 28th) I saw more going North again.

I know there are military bases around but it sure does seem they are moving a lot of vehicles right now and they were all going North. I did not see any going South at all.

Anyone else noticing a lot of moving of military vehicles? Anyone seeing these Homeland Security vehicles on trucks around the country?

Why were they going through the small town of Winchester Kentucky with it?

Here in Corsicana, Texas, 56 miles south of Dallas, I see many military vehicles, tanks and such on flatbeds passing both west and east on Highway 31. However, since Fort Hood is west of me and the Army Maintenance & Repair Depot is east of me in Texarkana, I think nothing of it.

Also, we are bringing back vehicles that were in Iran, by way of Kuwait. Also, we are doing a draw down in Afghanistan so this may also be the cause. You have heard of Fort Knox Army Base, havent you??

I wonder if anyone has any idea of the number of cities, towns, and villages there are in the USA? The number I’m getting is a bit over 25,000 but I think the number may be considerably higher.

Just a little something to consider while we await the martial law that some are sure is coming. After all, how many soldiers does it take to control a city of 10 million and how many does it take to control 1000 towns of under 300?

The only time I ever see anything military around here is when they’re doing a flyover of the track on race weekend. I did encounter a couple guys in a military owned pickup one day and they just wanted to know where the hell they were at.

Why were they going through the small town of Winchester Kentucky with it?

There's a cutoff through Winchester from I-75N to I-64E, and that looks like it. There is a shot on an interstate, as well, which taken in sequence could be I-64E.

In fact, that first shot is from 627 where you turn left to go up to I-64. You can match it with this Google Streetview ( Note the church. )

Probably Federal Protective Services, Special Response Team coming back from training at Fort Campbell. I believe they keep some of their equipment at the Advanced Training Center in Harpers Ferry WV. The military vehicles could be headed back to Fort Knox?

Probably doing joint training exercises to get ready for the OWS jerks trying to recreate the “Days of Rage” in Charlotte and Tampa.

Yeah, all the brown shirts in our Military and all the retired Military in Law Enforcement.

Most of them hate Obama as much as we do, and just because they were in the Military, it doesn't mean they're mindless robots.

When the flag is stationary, the constellation is in the place of honor in the upper left corner.

However, when the flag is attached to something that moves, the constellation is placed to represent the flag being carried forward, so viewed from the starboard side where the "staff/mast" would be at the front of the vehicle with the constellation in the upper right). It's been this way for a long, long time. At least since immediately prior to WWII. See pic below of a pre-war B-24A Liberator:

Every night here in Memphis, one of those rigs is set up to do it’s thing on Beale Street. It’s got accoustical soundwave guns, tear gas tanks with launchable rounds, high pressure water cannons, machine gun terret which fires rubber bullets, shockwave cannons, special spray hoses to mark those targeted with unremoveable dye, and lord knows what else? It’s proudly displayed with it’s DHS tags.

According to the U.S. Code, the flag’s blue field must always face forward on moving vehicles and people. It’s similar to the blue field always displayed on the left when the flag is hung vertically. Although few people in the media and Hollywood know this.

The real question has not been asked.

Why does Homeland Security need these toys, when we theoretically have access to similar military-supplied and operated toys if needed?

You missed the trucks from Aberdine to Ft Lee VA? All those tanks from WWI to present day?

OK, its Summertime, Reserves and NG are on the highways going in all directions. There could also be an assembly plant in the area or a rehab shop. Highly unlikely that a small town in KY will be under military control.FT Knox and Ft Cambell are located there so my guess is some unit is getting new equipment. I will rule out them going to the FEMA Concentration camps. ;)

“The Department of Homeland Security has ordered masses of riot gear equipment to prepare for potential significant domestic riots at the Republican National Convention, Democratic National Convention and next year’s presidential inauguration. “

DHS, FBI and a bunch of other Federal agencies have been "inheriting" surplus APCs that are being sent back from Iraq. The FBI's Washington DC field office usually has one or both of it's MRAPs - which are still painted desert yellow - parked out on 3rd St. NW.

Not just Federal agencies either, but State and local PDs as well ... especially those with SWAT components. It's sorta an updated and more sinister version of how, following WWII local PDs/Civil Defense units ended up with Deuce and a Halfs, DUKWs and 3/4 ton trucks.

I recall seeing Bradley Fighting Vehicles and a Combat Engineer Vehicle used at Waco. The Democrats aren’t afraid to use armored vehicles against American citizens. The Democrats don’t have any problems with guns as long as the get to decide who the guns are pointed at.

There exists a DHS training facility in Pacific County, Washington. Whether it is north of Lebam, WA, in the Willapa Hills, or south of Lebam in the Grays River divide, I'm not certain. A former Pacific County commissioner told me of its existence.

Black helicopters, the big ones with dual rotors, are flying over Longview, Washington, towards the north often enough to be noticeable.

Those would be CH- or MH-47 Chinooks. And although I've seen some MH-47s (at publicly-accessible airshows, I'd add) a flat black MH-47 or two, from any sort of distance standard US Army Helo Drab (FS34031) looks black.

Actually they won’t seat us past 9:00PM at any restaraunt because of what goes on there past that time. Personally I prefer to have my children watch adults make asses of themselves. Puking in the gutter, showing off your boobs, swearing at every opportunity, and other disfunctional traits needs to be direct up close observational experiences in order to take the shine off the fun it’s all made out to be on HBO.

Memphis functions on the following premise..........

If you are black, your housing and food is free. So too is your healthcare. And if you have a sniffle, call an ambulace for a free $1,000 ride to the ER to get it checked out.That is the Memphis way.

The riot gear is for once Obama is re-elected and the guy stops giving out all the free stuff in favor of the underside view of the bus for all his loyal racist brothers and sista's..
