    I was a “roll player” for some of these exercises last week at the fire station in Anchorage, and on Ft. Rich, Alaska. You all are EXTREMELY nieve about what we were all doing out there. It’s not about “food rioters” that was just the scenario for the exercise. It prepares them for ANY KIND OF RIOTERS, no matter what the hell they are rioting about. There were also exercises we were involved in for the National Guard to be prepared to deal with chemical disasters, and saving people in case of natural disasters… There were a number of different types of exercise going on out there, MANY of which you have not heard or know about. That’s the main priority of the NATIONAL GUARD, they come in as BACKUP to assist in emergencies and disasters. We have ACTIVE duty personnel that are out protecting our country with the ASSISTANCE of the National guard. Give these guys a break, the exercises were very well put together and the National Guard men and women did a FANTASTIC job of dealing with the situations and scenarios that they were put into. I would trust any one of the airmen and soldiers that I was treated by during these simulation exercises with my life! They are good at what they do, and these exercises are designed to make them BETTER… A+ to all of the men and women in the Hawaii, and Washington state National Guards the Anchorage Fire Department and the Anchorage Police Department for all your hard work! You guys did an AMAZING job and we appreciate everything you do! GOD Bless all of our troops around the world, GOD Bless America!!! -Kristin, Anchorage Alaska

      Kristin– the problem with your philosophy is that the military is NEVER supposed to be used against its own citizens. Our founding forefathers were exceptional fore thinkers when they devised that grand idea called the Constitution. The fact that you buy into the idea that our troops are “protecting” the people from themselves shows your ignorance of what the “Spirit of Constitutional” law is all about. There is a reason that we have the Posse Comitatus Act. It is to protect We the People from individuals like you.

    Pardon me Kristin, but I must take exception to your post. Training to help is one thing but once you train, for even one minute, on taking down Americans, in America, you have crossed a line in my book. I also find it troubling when I saw the “food” sign. You don’t find that odd or scary that they are training for food riots? To me that means the Government has no intention on trying to help it’s citizens in the coming hardships. And if you think for one minute that the regular Military isn’t also training for this too you are kidding yourself. Seeing these pictures makes me sick. I see what is coming by people like you following blind behind an evil, illegal, unjust Government. I pray it doesn’t come to what you and they are training for.

  4. Why would they train for this?
    May 4, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    Why do you think they are being trained for stuff like this? Do you think this kind of training is just for fun? Soldiers have always been trained to fight in wars. Now they are being trained to do this stuff. POLICING. Policing people, and policing people like you.

    Does anyone else think this is normal? This is the natural progression? We’re SUPPOSED to be looking for ways to detain and oppress people??? The only good guys therefor become the military. They DEFINITELY know best right? All those soldiers have ALL the right information for WHY they’re training for this right?

    They’re just following orders. They think they can think for themselves, but Kristin, I’m sorry….but you’re not thinking far enough ahead. Ask yourself why? Why would you train in this way? Why would posse comitatus exist? This is not normal. You are following orders from people who KNOW why you are training this way because they have an agenda. They are using you to get it done. You’re being manipulated every time you participate in the army that has illegally entered into war after war. Did the US declare war like it should have through an Act of Congress? Or did some guy with Oil money to make and an father with an arms company to fund get that done for their own means?

    Ask yourself WHY.

    May 12, 2010 at 11:18 am

    It would be better if the NG did not have to train for such things. This training is for a lessor evil because in desperate situations people do not maintain control of themselves, especially when in a group. So what is the alternative to having the NG? Self-governance? Well that worked out very well in East L.A. a few years back – not! Society creates and dictates the need for NG. If you don’t see that then you are blind and live in an ignorant bubble.

    I don’t like the idea of Americans taking down Americans any more than you do. Imagine what the Guardsmen have to mentally go through – the thought of taking down a neighbor, family, or church memember is a huge challenge for them. But ask yourself why would they need to do this at all? It is because these neighbors, family members, and church members lose control,unruly and a danger to themselves, others, and property. When this happens who is going to reign them in?

    The thought of using military force on our own people is not a pretty one, but a contingency we have to prepare for. It does ride a fine line between a police state and a free nation. I believe that the right to bear arms by any citizen that wishes to do so is imperative to maintaining that fine line. Just as you believe that this NG training is dangerous I believe that the citizens have a right and duty to keep the military in check as well. Through these checks in balances and everyone behaving themselves peace should occur.

    June 16, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    The absolute naivete of those goosestepping to these anti-American training exercises is breathtaking?

    WHO is OFFICIALLY being identified as “the enemy” by official Homeland Security documents? Sitting US Congressman and presidential candidate Dr. Ron Paul, Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin, as well as MILLIONS of peaceable American citizens who have committed NO crimes nor threatened ANYONE – yet are on Homeland [IN]Securty’s Nazi “enemies of the State” list/s.

    ANY training to engage the REAL internal threat enemy of the US – ILLEGAL ALIENS AND THE FOREIGN DRUG CARTELS’ WELL-ARMED TERRORISTS?! NO – NOT ONE TRAINING EXERCISE TO TAKE DOWN THE REAL INTERNAL THREATS TO THE US THAT THREATEN THE PEOPLE AND THE STABILITY OF THE US. Any arrests of the illegal criminal aliens at the illegal alien rallies who were caught on camera ADVOCATING THE OVERTHROW OF THE US, THE MURDER OF LAW ENFORCEMENT AND PUBLIC OFFICIALS, AND THE 100% RACIST PROPAGANDA BEING BROADCAST – ALL UNDER THE PROTECTION OF THE NAZIS IN CONTROL OF THE US GOVERNMENT AND MILITARY. Any military training to secure the US’s southern border and eliminate the threat from the CIA-controlled drug cartels in Mexico (and throughout the world!)?

    For those goosestepping morons posting on sites like this, attempting to excuse and dismiss the threat FROM the US government and the UNCONSTITUTIONAL use of military inside the US AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, perhaps you should actually take the time to learn the lessons of history – that YOU are on the wrong side of right and the Truth. When what you are advocating and the side you are supporting bases their entire existence on lies, disinformation and propaganda, when they are CLEARLY in violation of the US and respective state Constitutions, who rule by lawless dictatorial fascist means, YOU ARE ON THE SIDE OF EVIL, PERIOD. “There is a way that seems right unto a man; but in the end only leads to death.” The Germans, Italians, Russians, Chinese et al, all BELIEVED in “the State” and its agendas at the time – History condemns and testifies against those of that generation – History will also testify against those who aid and abet in the overthrow of the Constitutional Republic of the United States and the principles upon which it stands – INDIVIDUAL GOD-GIVEN INALIENABLE RIGHTS ABOVE ALL GOVERNMENT, A GOVERNMENT UNDER HEAVY CHAINS THAT IS SUBSERVIENT AND ACCOUNTABLE TO THE PEOPLE AND THE SOVEREIGN SEVERAL STATES.

    Is there ANY uniformed personnel who are standing up and questioning their superiors on the agenda/s and doctrine being fed law enforcement, the NG and other military branches? Are Americans in uniform and stupid and brainless as the Germans under Hitler or the Italians under Mussolini?!! Are they so ignorant of history that they do not even realize they are siding AGAINST the American People? WAKE UP AND SEE THE TRUTH AND THE WHOLE PICTURE! Read the lawless unconstitutional presidential executive orders and decrees; Examine the unconstitutional fascist laws (the Patriot Act, the John Warner Defense Authorization Act, et al) read the MIAC Report and other similar Nazi SS reports identifying PATRIOTIC AMERICANS as “enemies of the State” – Then ask yourself, “WHO’S THE REAL ENEMY OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC OF THE UNITED STATES?” SLOWLY RECITE YOUR OATH: “TO UPHOLD AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES FROM ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC . . . and to obey all LAWFUL orders” — QUESTION ALL ORDERS, EXAMINE ALL DOCTRINES AND PROPAGANDA BEING ADVOCATED – AND LET YOUR GOD-GIVEN CONSCIENCE AND PRINCIPLES GUIDE YOU.

    Corrupt the people by destroying their moral foundation and conscience, and the corruptors will usher in “the solution” – a totalitarian police state in order to maintain “law and order.”

    “I want a people devoid of conscience.” “Conscience is a Jewish myth.” – Adolf Hitler

    People without conscience will commit all manner of evil as their masters command them to do – The Jewish Holocaust, the American Indian Holocaust, the Chinese Holocaust (Mao’s revolution), the Cambodian Holocaust, and all the other holocausts that have been committed in the name of the State and the global elite, stand as reminders for all humanity. When the State rebels and usurps authority OVER the people, and deems itself above all powers, even God Almighty, there is no end to the evil and wickedness that will be carried out by the servants of the State.

    The ADMITTED criminal and illegal wars of aggression executed by the United States and NATO against Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan (and now threatening Iran), all based on admitted lies and disinformation, resulting in the murder of millions of Iraqis, Afghanis and Pakistani citizens, the uncalculable war crimes and crimes against humanity (ADMITTED torture, kidnapping, murder and imprisonment without charges or trial) –

    No doubt those who aid and abet and support the criminal military takeover of the US, also still believe the government’s ridiculous and implausible CONSPIRACY THEORY of 9/11 – that the criminal wars of aggression and perpetual occupation of other nations are still justified and necessary. The military industrial complex loves such brainwashed useful idiots. Wars are simply not possible without useful idiots willing to carry out the criminal lawless agendas of the warmongers.

    Refuse to go along with their criminal agendas and oppose them at all costs. There is a Day of Reckoning for all people – No one gets away with ANYTHING – Blaming the State to justify your own sins will not save you. Make certain you are standing on the Right side of things – Pursue the Truth above all else and stand upon it without compromise.

    I am a Marine vet, we did this training to be done in other countries for civil unrest. When called in. But never in the United states. Times have changed and the Government is scared. If they were not scared the Patriot act would have never been passed years ago. The America as was well known for Democracy is gone. A serious storm is on the Horizon and will soon be unleashed. The question will be what side are the Marines, soldiers, Navy and Air Force on. I pray to god it is on the side of Free America and the Constitution of the United States and to give all the freedoms back to the people.

    Its time for our armed forces to come home and protect the people of this country and remove the Government in power. Question again is their a commander or a retired Commander with the Ball and guts of Gen Patton to take it back. Because that is what it is going to take! Dont be brained washed by this Government that they are going to help us. They are in power to destroy the Freedoms of The United States.

    We the people of this country need to be ready to do what is necessary and that does just mean vote. If they declare Marshal law there will be no vote or a constitution left and the USA will go into a war again. there are foreign Powers watching all of this.

    The above poster “Kristen” doesn’t see that the military and police may be asked to fight and detain Americans that are assembeling totally within their rights given by the constitution. After all who decides when someone is a “terrorist”. Many people in the government would consider anyone who wants them thrown out for corruption a “terrorist”. That is the big concern here. That our men and women in uniform will be ordered to fight american citizens and put them into internment camps. Which is just the politically correct term for concentration camp. So what will our service men do? Thats the question. Will they turn their guns on Americans who want the corruption to end? Or will they stand by the constitution? I don’t know. But soldiers have been killing their countrymen by order for thousands of years. I only hope ours will have the honor and bravery to make the right choice. It will be hard.

    Food riots are coming. Prepare now! Go out and get food and water. Even if its just $30 per week of storable food thats alot! If you live in a small apartment put it under your bed, or in your closets.

    God have mercy on us

    I used a link to this story on one of the very early posts on my website worldwidewakeupnow.com, this is a great site and I will continue to be visiting this page everyday as I find the news here very helpful. For those wondering why the National Guard is preparing drills like this take a guess from a number of scenarios, as people here have noted food shortages are coming which no doubt mean food rioting will happen, but also look at the current mess in the Gulf with the BP oil spill. There’s currently a media blackout going on down there as both BP and the MSM don’t want people to see how truly devastating this is however in due time sooner or later we’re all going to see the damage caused from this as it will be felt worldwide. SHTF plan is another one of my favorite sites to follow, and from one of there stories there’s a link that tells us Russian Scientists are predicting toxic oil spill rains could destroy North America, and they go on to say this oil spill threatens ‘total devastation of the entire East Coast. a link to this article can be found herehttp://www.eutimes.net/2010/05/toxic-oil-spill-rains-warned-could-destroy-north-america/

    There are no denying that there are turbulent times ahead, unfortunately with those times coming I see rioting as inevitable…we already see rioting for pleasurable situations, point in case the recent riots in LA when the Lakers beat the Celtics in game 7 where a mob formed and destroyed several taxis out of celebration. That mob was formed instantly, was unorganized and it was formed over a ‘celebratory’ event. Imagine what kind of hell would be unleashed by an organized angry mob upset at destruction of an oil hurricane or the MSM blackout and lies that we are currently witnessing…they’d rather keep people in the dark to ‘not cause panic’ then to give them a chance to prepare at what’s coming up ahead

    I have talked with MANY service (army, marines, etc) and its a split decision among them. Most are confused of whats going on, what is real and whats not. However, more then half said they would NOT fire on American people if ordered to do so. The problem here is for them to be able to tell who is American and who is not, according to investigations, the commanders are instructed to lie to them. SAD!!!

    I recognize the pic taken at Ft. Richardson, Alaska. The Baumister MOUT (Military Operations Urban Terrain) has recently been renovated for urban warfare. Note the new shutters on the brick buildings. It’s located near Otter Lake. The “Food” sign is disturbing indeed. Here’s a thought: If you are Active, retired, Guard, Reserves and the Shi* Hits the Fan and Elmendorf Commissary is the only place in town for food (rationed, of course) will you be assured you can LEAVE the military reservation at will? Stock up NOW. BE ADVISED, ANCHORAGE HAS A ONE WEEK RESERVE SUPPLY OF FOOD – EVERTHING IS FLOWN/TRUCKED/BARGED. What happens when the supply is cut off (for any reason?)Get your house in order. Folks, one of two things will happen: Major Earthquake (from which we all can recover from) or collapse of the Gov’t (from which we all may die). God isn’t dead, consider his presence and mercy. Firearms (in context of protecting life and property) will make a huge difference. Planning is the key, regardless the situation. Natural disaster or civil unrest, BE READY!

    Not everything the military does for their exercises can be posted online, or even spoken of outside of a certain group of people. People really need to pull their heads out their asses and wake up. If we posted everything online adn were totally open about everything then there would be no such thing as OPSEC.
    Hence the reason we do what we do and you sit at home and watch. Cause we know wtf we’re doing!! so lay off

    Our nation is already under MARSHALL LAW. The national guard will be needed because our food and water are also held hostage by our government and private companies. They are in collusion in a war against the sovereign people. They have confused and propaganda-ized into a fear-based society. Our freedoms, peace of mind, security and future are being stripped from us by the government and corporations. This is treason.

    Every time I see the zoning changes in Kern County where I live, I get more pissed off. We can’t eat concrete and asphalt. Local farms used to provide fresh produce, eggs, meat, milk, cheese. It’s been replaced with foreign grown or Monsanto pesticide food. Go into a grocery store and read where your produce and food originates. Here’s an interesting article:

    Cooking Light Magazine, Page 50, April 2009. As the food travels.
    Check the country-of-origin sticker on an item of produce, organic or not, and you might be surprised how many miles it treks. Below, we calculated the potential carbon footprint for tomatoes shipped from three top domestic stomato producing regions to a single U.S. city. (According to the Energy Information Administration, motor fuel releases 19.5 pounds of carbon dioxide per gallon.
    Calculations made if shipped by a 15 mpg truck.) Foreign tomatoes travel even farther. By contrast, Iowa State University researchers found that locally grown produce only traveled 56 miles from farm to market, on average.

    Source Destination Miles Greenhouse gases
    Lompoc, CA, Denver, CO, 925, 1,202 pounds
    Naples, FL, Denver, CO, 1624, 2,111 pounds
    Prescott, AZ, Denver, CO, 569, 740 pounds

    Totals: 3118, 4053 pounds
    Local: 56 miles and 73 lbs

    She’s right. Most of these guys did look pretty trustworthy from what I saw. The kind of guy you would want there if you were hurt in an accident or some other national disaster.

    But what if these aren’t the guys who actually show up when the fat hits the fire? What if these guys are brainwashed into fighting or assisting in some other conflict, maybe on foreign soil and the troops who actually show up are U.N. troops that hail from Russia, China, Belgium, etc? Then we have a horse of a different color. And even if these are the same guys who show up in a national emergency, what information will they be programmed with about the conflict they are sent to address and what orders will have been given to them to carry out? Considering the current chief order giver and his tendency toward communism, what is the likelihood that their orders will be consistent with the constitution? Not too likely, I would say. The same question can be asked of state and local police as well as regular military.

    I am slightly concerned that the urban areas would disintegrate quickly and if I am to believe the Lame Stream media some of these gangs are approaching drug cartel fire power and a National Guard unit really doesn’t stand a chance. What the feds have allowed to happen on the Southern border is criminal and we should deal with those useless politicians and bureaucrats the way Rome dealt with Spartacus’ army. We are going to have to go through a period of no work; sorry, no food. We are going to have to write off areas that have been totally destroyed buy political stupidity (urban renewal area and the like). These kids in this national guard unit – let’s not throw them at human animals, lets ask them to help build a new country.

    Do you remember or know what happened at Kent State in 1970? It wasn’t pretty. If those National Guardsmen had been professionally trained in riot control maybe those 4 college students would have lived full lives. Crap happens. What if the “rioters” are threatening YOUR life and property I’m sure all you bleeders would see it differently then.

    This article sucks. It’s just a collection of image bytes with no coherent story. Why is the military doing this exercise? What are its objectives? And why should I be concerned? No answers equals less wow. So why PI are you trying to scare us?

    Knock it off, Larry Dee, wife of Sandra Dee. You can’t see the big picture, can you? Well, America is being shut down. The America you know is heading for the dust bins. And the America “they” want is being set up to take its place. It’s called fascism, Hooplah. And it’s coming to a neighborhood near you.

    @ Kristin You get an F for misspelling “naive”, and “role player”. You get an A+ for being an ignorant bootlicking twat.

    You better tell your buddies that IF they make the choice of going against the Constitution, Posse Comitatus,and the American people, then they are going to get an asswhipping like never before seen in history. As many of the comments here have said, the US is purposefully being turned into a third world country, and if soldiers are going to participate in the policing of American people then you can BET there is going to be “blowback”. Why IN THE FUCK DO YOU THINK “FOOD SHORTAGE RIOTS” WERE PART OF THE SCENARIO?!? A certain segment of the 150 million gun owners, are not going to be pleased with uniformed thugs running the streets. The 2nd amendment is the ONLY Homeland Security we need. You better think twice about what you are participating in. BTW, you aren’t keeping me or my family “safe”. You are not “protecting my freedoms” as they have been stripped by the Patriot Act, Military Commissions act, and a few other pieces of shit legislation that was passed. I guess the terrorists won, since they “hate us for our freedoms”. If you dumb fuckers want to do something useful, go to Wash. DC and clean house. You can take your “God Bless America” and shove it up your ass. “America” is about to collapse. That is what you are preparing for, dumbass.

    If you want to see this in a for real situation just check out some of the videos on the recently past G20 summit held in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The cops were too frightened to take on the Black Block protesters who were causing all the damage but were quite willing and overly vigilante against citizens who live in the area. They corralled these innocent people in and held them at bay, in the rain soaked streets for hours. Anyone who even looked sideways at them was hauled off to an internment area and held for at least 24 hours. People coming out of restaurants after a nice dinner or just out for a walk were caught in this Neo Nazi frenzy. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty secretly gave the okay for police to suspend peoples rights and of course the police chief takes it another few steps further. This seems to be exactly what government officials want to do and are willing to carry it as far as they can. You don’t fool me by telling me it is to protect my rights because in the government of the day I have only have the rights they allow me to have.

    Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other.

    When the world awakens to the fact that the U.S. is an insolvent banana republic, these are the tactics they will use against American citizens. We will be dubbed “terrorists” when we form a resistance against the corrupted U.S. government and their constitution-shredding policies.

    I always wondered how governments could convince their soldiers to fight their own people. Now I know.

    If you’re wondering what might cause food riots, you should read this about an Executive Order that so few know about but will affect us all very gravely: http://www.globalresearch.ca/police-state-usa-new-obama-executive-order-seizes-u-s-infrastructure-and-citizens-for-military-preparedness/

    Eric – It’s happening already. Check out this sad case of young activists being railroaded for ‘terrorism’. I interviewed their lawyer.
    http://occupychi.org/2012/05/19/national-lawyers-guild-decries-terrorism-charges-against-occupy-activists-protesting-nato

    The govt has been leading up to this ever since Occupy began and the laws quickly changed dramatically. First #NDAA then #NDRP. If either of these laws were front page news as they should have been, we’d have had riots all in every city in the country.

    deadass – I’m glad you mentioned this. As usual, the destructive ‘black block’ were under-cover cops. That’s why the cops didn’t touch them – allowed them to bust up stores and light fire to cop cars & allowed them behind police lines. They then used this destructive activity as an excuse to brutally crush the peaceful protesters who actually had a cause. There are tons of videos showing this on YouTube.

    This is a familiar pattern – the government funds the violent & destructive events that provide them with an excuse to do whatever they want – like take away their people’s rights under the guise of ‘security’ while using the press about these poor oppressed people in another country to invade it and take control of the rich resources they just happen to have all under the guise of ‘humanitarian aid’.

    This pattern has been repeating over and over again and will continue until they have no need for it.. let’s ask our fellow citizens to not be a part of it.
