Invasion! DHS Source Tells Why Military Train in U.S. Cities
The Allegiant ^ | February 6, 2013. | David BardPosted on Monday, February 11, 2013 2:57:07 PM by Nachum
A news article was sent to me earlier this week. It appeared in the Beaufort Gazette. The article stated that later this week about 150 Marines and Navy personnel will hold realistic urban training in Jasper County, South Carolina.
This was one of many joint military-local law enforcement exercises that had come to my attention in less than one month. Held in cities across the U.S., they were becoming more common and more intense. But why? Why train in populated towns and cities where accidents could produce unnecessary casualties?
The Gazette further reported that the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit will train within Ridgeland town limits. The times and exact locations for the training are not being announced, according to 2nd Lt. Gerard R. Farao.A little background on the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit 26th MEU. It is one of seven Marine Expeditionary Units. A MEU is a Marine Air-Ground Task Force with a strength of about 2,200 personnel.
The MEU consists of four major parts: a command element, a ground combat element, an aviation combat element, and a logistics element. The 26th MEU was establishment in the early 1970s and has deployed extensively, and participated in numerous combat and contingency operations. The 26th MEU is based out of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

A nationwide flu outbreak could be a sufficient excuse to call up the National Guard Rapid Response Parallel support module to take control of a “national emergency” with possible declaration of martial law protocols. According to a North Carolina police lieutenant, in some three to six months declarations of martial law could be made throughout the nation.

TUCSON, Ariz., Dec. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to an article in the winter 2012 issue of the Journal of American Physicians
Subjects are placed in a chamber in which they breathe diesel exhaust emissions from trucks parked outside.
For more than 10 years, EPA has imposed regulations costing the economy billions of dollars, based on the claim that small particles (“PM2.5″) kill thousands, even hundreds of thousands of Americans every year. PM2.5, which consists of particles smaller in diameter than a human hair, is produced by natural and industrial processes, farming, fires, engine exhausts, industrial grinding and friction, even dust from the ground in the desert.

The democrat explained that he proudly voted illegally “to save our country from the world envisioned by Mitt and his fear mongering followers.”

Imagine you go to the polls and choose Mitt Romney on an electronic machine, but your vote comes up Barack Obama. So you re-enter your choice, but the president’s name still stubbornly appears. Then a third try. Ditto.

2012 GENERAL ELECTION – 112 YEAR OLD VOTERS – NORTH CAROLINA – Votes Cast: 3,075 IN THIS GROUP
THEIR PARTY AFFILIATION IS APPROX. 70% D / 30% R / 10% UNAFFILIATED – THE REAL CONCERN IS THERE IS NOT THAT MANY 112 YEAR OLDS ALIVE. IT DOES NOT TELL WHO THEY’VE VOTED FOR.
…..The Military Vote
Not only should our soldiers votes be counted ahead of all other votes, as it is those soldiers who pay for our Right with their blood, they MUST be counted. It’s both right and necessary.
Because Democratshave been overtly anti-Military since the 1960s, decimating the military at every opportunity and shifting more and more funding away from National Security and into Social Engineering, soldiers have consistently voted 80% Republican for decades.
Democrats have attacked Tri-Care, Social Security, Medicare, Defense spending and Military Rules of Engagement, for years now, resulting in a HUGE increase in KIA and WIA among soldiers on the field of battle and struggling veterans at home.

Two smothered stories: Vets running away from Obama; even NPR fans not happy with illegal aliens « « Coach is RightCoach is Right

The battleground states that the media’s fake polls are assigning to Barack Obama are populated by a large number of military veterans. Florida alone has 1.6 million and Ohio Virginia and North Carolina have nearly 1 million each.
These numbers are extremely important because at least one Left wing media outlet Reuters, is reporting that Mitt Romney has an insurmountable 20 point lead over Barack Obama among veterans. While insisting that their Democrat skewed survey “results” are showing a growing overall lead for Obama, Reuters has been forced to acknowledge that veterans are less supportive of Obama now than they were four years ago.
This lead whether it is being accurately reported or shorted holds across all veteran age groups. This will be a major factor in the election because 49% of veterans are 65+ a group that intends to vote at 86%.Obama’s problem with veterans is that they are aware of his policies and hostility toward the military…….
Grady Howard, 74, who said he began riding motorcycles about 50 years ago with his wife, Barbara, said during the Labor Day weekend event in Mount Airy he was forced to switch to the three-wheeled design due to leg aches and other health issues, The New York Timesreported Friday.
Birthmarks, be damned: the FBI has officially started rolling out a state-of-the-art face recognitionproject that will assist in their effort to accumulate and archive information about each and every American at a cost of a billion dollars.

I just got off the phone with a concerned Florida activist, Laura Noble, who informed me that both of Florida’s Rules Committeemembers, Peter Feaman and Kathleen King, have been removed from the Rules committee and replaced with Romney-appointed delegates.
The closer America gets to Election Day, the more some worry about the possibility of there not being one.
Obama is smiling all the way through the polls, and it may not merely be whistling past the cemetery this time.

…..Three other men died in Marine Corps jumping accidents not related to the performance of the parachute. Two men drowned after landing in water; one at Norfolk, Virginia, and one at New River, North Carolina. The final fatality occurred when a New River trainee lost his nerve just as he approached the door of the plane.
He moved out of the line of jumpers, but his static line became tangled with the next man to go out. The non-jumper’s parachute opened while he was inside the plane and the billowing chute slammed him against the aircraft body hard enough to wreck the door and sever his spine.
The most unusual accident occurred near San Diego, California, on 15 May 1941. Second Lieutenant Walter A. Osipoff and 11 enlisted men of Company A were making a practice jump over Kearney Mesa. Everyone else had exited the plane and he threw out a cargo pack, which possibly tangled in his static line.
His parachute opened prematurely while he was still in the door of the plane; it billowed outside the aircraft and pulled him out, but the canopy and suspension lines tangled in the bundle of static lines streaming beside the transport. For a moment the cargo pack, Osipoff and his partially opened parachute were all suspended from the cable that held the static lines.

CHANTILLY, Va. – As the the exclusive Bilderberg Conference being held at the Westfields Marriott Convention Center starts to wind down, the protests are just getting started.
WND was on the scene early in the morning to meet the protestors and find out what motivated them to spend their weekend keeping a watchful eye on this elusive gathering.
An anonymous protestor from North Carolina commented to WND that he attended because “I wanted to see if this was real.” He detailed how the attendees were the “top .01 percent of the world financial elite.”
While the mainstream media would be quick to dismiss the protestors as a group of conspiracy theorists, a wider range of the political spectrum was represented. Tea partiers, libertarians, traditional conservatives and even a few occupiers were woven into the coalition of long-time Bilderberg hunters.
The watchful guardians of the entire protest were the Oath Keepers, a group of patriotic servicemen involved in the military and police who swear fealty to the Constitution.

That is exactly the claim made by the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition. In December 2011, diabetic blogger Steve Cooksey started a Dear Abby-style advice column on his popular blog (www.diabetes-warrior.net) to answer reader questions.
One month later, the State Board informed Steve that he could not give readers advice on diet, whether for free or for compensation, because doing so constituted the unlicensed, and thus criminal, practice of dietetics. The State Board also told Steve that his private emails and telephone calls with readers and friends were illegal, as was his paid life-coaching service. The State Board went through Steve’s writings with a red pen, indicating what he may and may not say without a government-issued license……..

About a month ago, EPA regional official Al Armendariz made news when a YouTube video of him describing the way the agency handles oil and gas companies surfaced. In it, Armendariz said an analogy he liked to use about enforcement was how the Romans used crucifixion to keep smaller towns and villages under their thumb. Since then, Armendariz has resigned his post at the EPA. Case closed, right? Wrong.
A local North Carolina man named Larry Keller didn’t particularly like the analogy that Al Armendariz used, so, along with thousands of others assumably, he set about to contact Mr. Armendariz to discuss his views on the oil and gas industries. One of our basic rights and privileges in a free society is to be able to petition our government for a redress of grievances without fear of repercussion from said government simply for voicing our grievance.

Disturbing trend of Obama cult of personality in school system continues
Paul Joseph Watson
Monday, May 21, 2012
An audio recording of an exchange between a teacher and a student at North Rowan High School in North Carolina serves as a reminder that the school system is becoming a training ground for teaching kids to be subservient to the state while indoctrinating them into thinking that the First Amendment doesn’t exist.
The clip features a conversation in which teacher Tanya Dixon-Neely tells students that it is a criminal offense to criticize Barack Obama and that they could be “arrested” for doing so.
The discussion centers around a story about Mitt Romney bullying a kid five decades ago. A student responds by pointing out that Obama admits in his own book, Dreams from My Father, that he also bullied a girl when he was in school, and that both Obama and Romney are “just men.”
Dixon-Neely then begins yelling about how “disrespecting the President” is an arrestable offense.
A newly republished 1995 commentary of then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger linked the breakdown of marriage to the rise of the acceptance of homosexuality, warning of the rise of “pressure groups” that could manipulate public opinion on such issues.
The future Pope Benedict XVI said it is not a coincidence that the growing social acceptance of homosexuality should be “accompanied by a serious crisis in the area of marriage and the family.”
Societal changes in the wake of the 1960s “sexual revolution” resulted in sexuality being more detached from marriage, and rejection of Catholic teaching on homosexuality made the pastoral care for homosexual persons “more difficult.”
“The satisfaction of the sexual impulse was propagandized as the way to happiness and to the true development of the personality,” he wrote. “Values like self-control and chastity were accepted less and less.”
The Pope’s comments came years before the Netherlands became the first country to recognize “gay marriage.”
PALM BEACH, Fla. – A new poll shows Barack Obama trailing likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney in North Carolina – home of the upcoming Democratic Convention – by eight percentage points, and that has some Republicans seeing hope for ousting the incumbent, but also fearful of a late-year Obama surprise.
WASHINGTON – On the same day that President Barack Obama declared his support for same-sex marriage, the House Armed Services Committee backed measures prohibiting the practice on U.S. military bases.
The panel stepped into the gays in the military issue as it considered a sweeping, $642 billion defense bill for next year that buys new weapons, ships and aircraft, increases military pay by 1.7 percent and sets policies for the Pentagon. The committee worked through the day Wednesday and into the early morning Thursday on the legislation that adds billions of dollars to the president’s budget request.

City Wants Executive Order to Ban Concealed Carry in Tampa During RNC
Tampa’s City Council wants Governor Rick Scott to pass an executive order banning concealed carry rights to coincide with protests at the Republican National Convention later this year.
“The thousands of protesters expected at the Democratic and Republican national conventions can come armed with a lot more than signs and slogans: State law in Florida and North Carolina allows concealed weapons, including guns,” reports the Sacramento Bee.
“The Tampa City Council wants Scott to issue an executive order, preventing people with concealed weapons permits from carrying guns.”
The report also said media reports add “unbound delegates” to their counts, but those “should not be counted as if they are bound.”“The month of April was always going to be difficult but the calendar gets much more friendly for Rick Santorum in May,” the report said.
“North Carolina, Indiana, West Virginia, Nebraska, Oregon, Kentucky, Arkansas, and Texas might lead to Santorum winning roughly 7 out of 8 states in May, and heading into the June 5th primaries with a freight train of momentum.”…..
Obama Truth Team Unveils Spiffy New Logo
by Administrator 16. February 2012 21:08
President Obama is trying to recruit a 2 million member-strong “Truth Team” to ensure that those speaking out against his administration are appropriately dealt with. I’m not kidding.
The Obama campaign is today beginning a new effort to enlist and educate at least 2 million supporters for a “grassroots communications team” they’re calling the Truth Team… “The goal is to ensure that when Republicans attack President Obama’s record, grassroots supporters can take ownership of the campaign and share the facts with the undecided voters in their lives,” the campaign said in a statement.
The teams will be first launched in 13 “swing states,” including Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.
Reporter Biff Spackle, in another world exclusive, nabbed photos of the Truth Team’s new logo:…..

Ron Paul is one of those “overnight” sensations who are years, even decades in the making.

The unmistakably friendly portrayal, advertised on the cover as “The Unauthorized Biography of an Unauthorized Politician,” offers an informative and entertaining life story of one of the most unusual and interesting presidential candidates in American history.
Rink describes Paul’s early life as the third of five boys growing up on a family dairy farm in Green Tree, Pennsylvania. Born in 1935, Paul lived much of his early childhood in the shadow of World War II, as he gained his first impressions of government rationing and bureaucratic controls over farming. As a high-school athlete, he gained a reputation for fleet-footedness on the football field and in track, winning state championships as a junior in the 220- and 440-yard dashes, and finishing third in the 100-yard dash.

THE CULTURE of VIOLENCE in the AMERICAN WEST
MYTHS Vs. REALITY
By: Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The Real Cause of Violence in the American West
The real culture of violence in the American West of the latter half of the nineteenth century sprang from the U.S. government’s policies toward the Plains Indians.
It is untrue that white European settlers were always at war with Indians, as popular folklore contends. After all, Indians assisted the Pilgrims and celebrated the first Thanksgiving with them; John Smith married Pocahontas; a white man (mostly Scots, with some Cherokee), John Ross, was the chief of the Cherokees of Tennessee and North Carolina; and there was always a great deal of trade with Indians, as opposed to violence. As Jennifer Roback has written, “Europeans generally acknowledged that the Indians retained possessory rights to their lands.

Some twenty years ago, there was a rough-looking man who used to frequent the Mississippi bars where I once made my living playing music in acoustic duos and trios. I remember him because he always stood in the back and applauded enthusiastically. He would even shout out words of encouragement in between requests. I remember that he liked the Allman Brothers and wished we would play more of their songs.
It is likely that I first met him in 1991. But I didn’t know anything about him until 1993. That was when my singer pointed him out and said he was a heroin addict who was slowly killing himself with his addiction. She said it was a shame that he so rarely made it out anymore. She claimed that he was the best singer she had ever heard. But I had never heard him sing. I only heard him say nice things to the people who sang for him.
One night in July of 1993, I was setting up to play for the very last time in the bar where I had played my first professional gig. The heroin addict with the hidden talent showed up and started drinking before we even started playing. I told him I was going to invite him up to the stage to sing a song before the night was over. He kept drinking and I kept my promise. I’m glad I did.
…When the President asked her what her sources of information were that she was quoting from, she said, “From a blog written by my friend Gerry Ashley… it’s called Grand Rants.” She told me that Obama stared at her and smiled as he wrote it down.
It’s a bit unnerving to know that The President (the most liberal and dangerously close to socialist President in our nation’s history) chose to write down the name of the blog himself. We already know he and his staff are skilled Internet users.
Dog and Lover Fly In Own Jet to “His Gayness” Obama (2010 flashback)
http://obamanationofdesolation ^ | 11/7/11 | Fellowship of the Minds
Posted on Monday, November 07, 2011 10:30:17 PM by Nachum
Reggie’s the best athlete I know – Obama
The rumors of Obama’s gayness abound, but the press is muzzled by the CFR like a trained lapdog. The Globe however ran an article recently about Donald Young, one of Obama’s alleged “gay lovers”, who was found murdered in Chicago. He was a gay choir director at the now infamous Trinity Church and reputedly a friend of Obama’s. Young’s mother thinks he was killed to protect Obama’s secret gay life during the campaign. This was reported by Larry Sinclair during the campaign. The media choose to bury the story.
An article ran recently linking Obama and Rahm to a gay bathhouse in Chicago. Obama Member of Chicago Gay Man’s Club. Rub a dub dub – the Chicago way.
And here’s another story about Obama “His Gayness” frolicking in a well known North Carolina gay club. He might have met his “personal assistant” Reggie Love there, the former “tight end” from Duke who Obama originally hired to work in his Senate mail room.
Then we have the story about Kal Penn, the open bisexual, who worked for Obama at the White House and the mysterious circumstances after he left his “post.” Another Boy Toy bites the dust? Perhaps he lost out in the power struggle with the “alleged” gay personal servant, “Reggie Love.” At any rate those with experience in this area say he’s gay. So the only real question left is he really Obama’s – you know, personal servant that takes care of all of his personal needs?
I swear at the TV.
Not when anyone’s around, and not to be obnoxious, but as a vocal outlet for the private conversation in my head.
I’m nuts that way.
In my head, I’m doing running commentary on life all the time.
Usually, it’s no more substantive than the observation that, no ma’am, you shouldn’t be wearing stretch pants, or that, yes sir, you are the biggest moron God ever made. That’s going on in my head all the time.
And sometimes it comes out.
Like when I’m watching a sitcom and I will let loose a hyena laugh.
Or, more commonly, when I’m watching the news and I let loose an f-bomb.
That’s when I swore.
Because, actually, I understand his jobs bill. And I understand what kind of a snake he is.
But he went on, and he said that he would break his jobs bill down, into simple stand-alone pieces of legislation, and see if Republicans could comprehend it better. Then he went on about how right now he wanted some number of billions of dollars to hire more teachers, cops and firemen.
And he asked how anybody, even Republicans, could be so dumb as to oppose hiring more teachers, cops and firemen.
That’s when I swore again.
Because, of course, federal stimulus money for more teachers, cops and firemen is nothing more than Dollars for Dues.
I might be a dumb Republican, but even I can see that the president is advocating borrowing more billions from the Chinese so that he can send more money to the unions that are his and his party’s largest donors.
See, cops and teachers are two of the most unionized – and most liberally unionized – workforces in America. And their unions donate stunning amounts of money to Democrats generally and Obama specifically.
Let’s follow the money.
The Chinese, when they’re not running down little girls in their own streets or making cheap crap to send over here, lend money to Obama. Obama gives money to schools and cities. Schools and cities hire more teachers and cops. Teachers and cops have to join unions. Unions collect more dues. Dues money is donated to Obama.
And Obama was trying to tell the people in North Carolina that that was good for America. It seems like the only economy he’s good at stimulating is his own.
So I swore at the TV screen.
And I resolved to wear my FUBO shirt.
Usually, I don’t. I’ve got a sticker on my truck, and some stuff on my Facebook, but I work with this liberal guy and he fixates on my T-shirt every day and when I wear a FUBO I worry that he’s going to melt down.
So I usually don’t wear it to work.
But I was ticked, so I took my chances.
And it felt great. And was well received.
FUBO came out a couple of years ago, somewhere between the stimulus and Obamacare, right about the time I’d had enough. It was during a commercial break on my radio show. The abbreviation came to me and after the commercials I told listeners and said that I’d like to get one of those little oval bumper stickers made with the letters FUBO.
In the next commercial break I found a place online to make me a dozen stickers and by the commercial break after that I had heard from a local T-shirt company that offered to make both bumper stickers and T-shirts.
We had sold a ton of them by the end of the show. And over the months since, across the country, the message of FUBO has steadily gotten out. It’s no grand philosophical statement, but it is a statement. It is a loud and clear statement.
As folks on initial approach to Rochester can tell you.
That’s thanks to Adam Booth.
See, about 60 miles south of Greater Rochester International Airport, where the big jets line up along the valley for the descent north into the city, Adam Booth owns some land.
He’s a mountain man of sorts. He and his wife and their kids live a simple life, eating a lot of game, working with their hands, being organic. If the economy stays in the tank, he’s going to go pan gold.
He’s a freedom-loving guy who speaks his mind. He did some Semper Fi time and flies the flag and in his live-and-let-live world the only thing that’s intolerable is a threat to freedom.
Which is what Obama is.
His anti-American, big-government plans are a threat to freedom. We dumb people know that.
And Adam Booth wanted to say so.
So he got some herbicide and a sprayer and he rigged up his ATV and across a few acres in front of his house he wrote FUBO.
F – U – B – O in huge block letters.
Easily read by passing jets.
That’s his message, and that’s my message.
He writes it in grass; I mutter it at the TV screen.
This president has failed. He has hurt our interests at home and across the globe. And in 13 months we get to vote again.
And America will send its own message.
You and the horse yo
