"Major Troop Movements In The US: Headed To DC?" A Comment

A Comment: As long time readers know I don't bother with sensationalistic nonsense on this blog, and am working to verify this information further. That said, I will tell you that I personally have seen several trains similar to the one in the video below, heading west towards California, as well as truck convoys of military and civilian tractor-trailers carrying armored personnel vehicles and what were obviously massive crates of ammunition of various kinds. There's also been a huge increase in air traffic, including planes and combat helicopters. Something's going on, folks, exactly what I won't speculate, leaving that up to your own judgement. If you have seen anything, or know anything about what's happening, please contact me at coyoteprime@gmail.com. This is our country, and we still have the right to know, at least for now, and as always, Good Taxpayer Citizen, YOU are paying for all this... - CP
 
"Major Troop Movements In The US: Headed To DC?"
By Live Free or Die

"Several new YouTube videos have come out within the last few days showing military vehicles being transported by trains across America. The coloring of these vehicles is green; generally in this day and age, military vehicles going overseas are colored tan for desert camouflage. According to these FB posts, US troops are headed towards DC with martial law potentially on the horizon. Please read these recent posts and decide for yourself: http://www.facebook.com/destry.payne/posts/4392154838186."

"The footage only captured half of the train; it stretched nearly 1.5 miles long."

“Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A 'Vision' of the Future”
by Kevin Benson and Jennifer Weber

"The U.S. Army’s Operating Concept 2016-2028 was issued in August 2010 with three goals.  First, it aims to portray how future Army forces will conduct operations as part of a joint force to deter conflict, prevail in war, and succeed in a range of contingencies, at home and abroad.  Second, the concept describes the employment of Army forces at the tactical and operational levels of war between 2016 and 2028.  Third, in broad terms the concept describes how Army headquarters, from theater army to division, organize and use their forces.  The concept goes on to describe the major categories of Army operations, identify the capabilities required of Army forces, and guide how force development should be prioritized. The goal of this concept is to establish a common frame of reference for thinking about how the US Army will conduct full spectrum operations in the coming two decades (US Army Training and Doctrine Command, The Army Operating Concept 2016 – 2028, TRADOC Pamphlet 525-3-1, dated 19 August 2010, p. iii.  Hereafter cited as TD Pam 525-3-1.)  The Army defines full spectrum operations as the combination of offensive, defensive, and either stability operations overseas or civil support operations on U.S. soil.

A key and understudied aspect of full spectrum operations is how to conduct these operations within American borders.  If we face a period of persistent global conflict as outlined in successive National Security Strategy documents, then Army officers are professionally obligated to consider the conduct of operations on U.S. soil.  Army capstone and operating concepts must provide guidance concerning how the Army will conduct the range of operations required to defend the republic at home.  In this paper, we posit a scenario in which a group of political reactionaries take over a strategically positioned town and have the tacit support of not only local law enforcement but also state government officials, right up to the governor.  Under present law, which initially stemmed from bad feelings about Reconstruction, the military’s domestic role is highly circumscribed.  In the situation we lay out below, even though the governor refuses to seek federal help to quell the uprising (the usual channel for military assistance), the Constitution allows the president broad leeway in times of insurrection.  Citing the precedents of Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War and Dwight D. Eisenhower sending troops to Little Rock in 1957, the president mobilizes the military and the Department of Homeland Security, to regain control of the city.  This scenario requires us to consider how domestic intelligence is gathered and shared, the role of local law enforcement (to the extent that it supports the operation), the scope and limits of the Insurrection Act- for example maintaining a military chain of command but in support of the Attorney General as the Department of Justice is the Lead Federal Agency (LFA) under the conditions of the Act- and the roles of the local, national, and international media.”

  1. The election is 35 days away. Hmmm.
    A Bank holiday could also be the trigger.

    Divide and conquer.
    Restricting information and travel will be their top priority.
    Instead of do not enter signs.
    We will see do not exit signs.
    Wonder what homing pigeons cost? :-)

  3. When I was a kid my parents tried to smuggle a few of my mother's relatives out of East Germany and into the West. None made it.
    Funny how history repeats its self.

    When I was 6 years old me and my mother crossed the Atlantic in order to find a new home.
    Now in my 60's me and my wife will cross the Pacific to find a new home.

  4. So true, history repeats because we never learn from it, no matter how horrific it is. That crossing the Pacific you mention... I'd be doing that as quickly as humanly possible, in all seriousness. Forget possessions and responsibilities here in the land of the free and the home of the brave, brother. It's gonna get real ugly real fast. Go, now, save yourself while you can.

    And you??????
    Are you going to be the Custer of our times?
    Will you be making the ultimate stand your ground act?

    Let the collapse begin, I say.
    It is our only hope for a new and equal beginning.

  6. "Well, you've really answered your own question..."the frontline is everywhere." No intention of making any stupidly futile last stand like Custer, and there are options for escape. It's really an attitude thing, maybe a sense of unavoidable acceptance to an irresistible reality, I don't know. It's how you face it really.
    When the Titanic was sinking the band assembled on the quarter deck. They well knew what the situation was, and then one of them began playing his violin. The others instantly also began playing, and did so until the water pulled them under. Yeah, the water's coming, but that doesn't mean we can't play until the end though, right? And so we will...

  7. LOL
    And the band played on.

    I prefer the bugle.
    I think you and your readers will enjoy this if you have not already seen it.

  9. And the band WILL play on, too, lol.
    And you know,no matter what they do, they just may be in for an exceeding rude surprise when things don't go exactly as they'd like them to...they seem incapable of considering that THEY might be the ones who lose this war. Surprise! lol
