LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Los Angeles Police Department teamed with military special operation forces Wednesday evening to conduct multi-agency tactical exercises in the skies above downtown LA.

Many questioned what was going on Wednesday night as a Black Hawk helicopter and four OH-6 choppers – or “Little Birds” – flew over the city, at one point hovering just above the US Bank building downtown and later flying low over the Staples Center as the Lakers played inside.

Someone could be seen sitting inside an open chopper with his legs hanging off the side.

Sky9 spotted the Black Hawk in the dark, making what appeared to be a drop off at a park before quickly ascending back into the air.

Throughout the exercise, the five rotorcrafts were staged at Dodgers Stadium.

The LAPD said the purpose of the training was in part to ensure the military’s ability to operate in urban environments.

Chief Warrant Officer David Duran was a U.S. Army aviator for 12 years. He now flies Blackhawk helicopters for the National Guard in California. Duran says what KCAL9 saw Wednesday night could be a dry run for a future mission.

“They do a lot of mockup training,” said Duran. “But it’s always best to get the closest terrain layout to what the objective is.”

Duran said the military chooses training environments based on what they might be facing in the near future.

“If it’s a mountainous terrain, they go to the mountains; if it’s a desert terrain, they use the desert; if they’re in a coastal terrain, they use the coast,” said Duran. “If it’s an urban terrain, you know, whatever’s needed.”

In a release Monday, the LAPD said training exercises would take place at various sites around the greater Los Angeles area through Thursday. The exercises were coordinated with local authorities and owners of the training sites, according to the release.

Many wondered Thursday night about the safety of such drastic maneuvers being conducted over an urban area.

The LAPD said safety precautions were taken to prevent risk to the general public, as well as the military personnel involved.

Similar exercises have been seen in Miami and Boston.

    They are probably coming for you Sia, you obviously know way too much. I’ve heard stories about these guys that they will swoop out of the darkness and abduct civilians to use for sick military experiments. There is no escaping them.

      They are coming for all of you… watch this video 13 minutes in they show the Internment Camps in New York. LAX Internment Camp location and photos are at around 19 minutes into the video. Don’t wanna believe watch the video and then drive down there and check it out for yourself. Take photos, shoot some video.

      Hi, My name is Bob. I have bee struck repeatedly in the head with no medical attention. I want you to listen to me as I babble like a fool and remember it’s not my fault that I’m a spit dribbling moron it ‘s because of government mind control brain waves. The only way to stop the brain waves is to beat your head against a wall, over and over.

    From the article:

    “Duran said the military chooses training environments based on what they might be facing in the near future.

    “If it’s a mountainous terrain, they go to the mountains; if it’s a desert terrain, they use the desert; if they’re in a coastal terrain, they use the coast,” said Duran. “If it’s an urban terrain, you know, whatever’s needed.””

    …….and if the future environment is Los Angeles itself with the passage of the NDAA, they go to Los Angeles.

    1. drawlr says:

      You’re absolutly correct. This all started with the deployment of the 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 3rd Infantry Division under NorthCom back in 2008. Then FEMA camps, now local law enforcment training with the military. Our government is getting ready for martial law. The net is being closed and the people don’t even know it. One of these days, the gate will slam closed and it’ll be too late.

        They did this same type of exercise in Little Rock, Arkansas several months ago. It scared the people in the neighborhood to death.

        I was in the USMC and trained a lot in Urban Warfare. The U.S. has entire Towns with Gas Stations, Schools, houses, appts, with cars up and down the streets. No one lives there. They were built for the purpose of Urban Warfare exercises. It isn’t just some plywood mockups, either. The buildings/houses/gas stations/etc are built better than whoever built my house. It has road infrastructure, traffic signals, etc…only difference is no people unless you need a bunch of boots to be the terrorists.

    i swear there are laws being broken here. this is just practice for using the military ON US CITIZENS

    1. bombtech2 says:

      Really…what laws…please be specific…cite the statute number. People like you disappointment. You demand the best from the military but cannot fathom that they may need to use realistic training senarios

      1. Atomic says:

        “Statute numbers” are not required when you can simply “interpret” the existing laws differently than they were intended. The 2nd amendment…for example.

      2. Zen says:

        “Cite the statute number?” You must be kidding me. It’s called our Constitution and the statutes actually enumerate the exceptions, not the rules, governing the domestic use of military force.

      4. jack nichols says:

        What a War monger wacko. The military doing maneuvers on an American city was a violation of the Posse Commutates act. That is until that act was repealed a few years back, now with this new law just passed by the senate and signed into law by the idiot in chief the entire homeland (USA) is now a war zone. I really hope you are the first to pay with your life for your stupidity. At least be shipped off to an undisclosed location for an undetermined length of time as an enemy combatant without trial. When Hitler’s name is mentioned do you touch yourself with pleasure?

      5. Ratt says:

        Here ya go Bomb Dude.

        Posse Comitatus, the Act does not prohibit members of the Army from exercising state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain “law and order”; it simply requires that any orders to do so must originate with the United States Constitution or Act of Congress.

      6. Jamie says:

        Posse Comitatus Act

    2. Jack Mort says:

      Judging from what I’ve seen in Detroit, Chicago, and LA – they’re already war zones with a violent aboriginal population.

    3. Tank says:

      This is like the uproar from the conspiracy types in the mid 1990s when they were just positive we were training Russian troops on US soil because someone saw sign in Cyrillic writing around Camp Shelby Mississippi. Never mind that many, many people explained they were set up as part of train-up for Bosnia deployments, nope the Alex Jones faithful just knew the Spetnatz was training in Mississippi….

  5. john Iverson says:

    Military exercises over an American city. Posse Comitatus rights infringement, in line with the growth of repression of citizens under a democratic government? The hollowing of anyone’s promise to honor the big C?. Nah, just the military industrial state’s need for free expression of toys.

    1. 1776 says:

      Thou hast well stated. Falls in line with the (so-called) “Patriot” & Military Commission Acts…meant to establish an Orwellian, dystopic police state whilst the Republic is tore down.

    2. Craig Brockman says:

      This has nothing to do with Posse Comitatus.

      1. invasion usa says:

        Right, it has to do with the “committed pvssies” of the pigs and the drones. Ding ’em, homeys.

      2. me says:

        You are correct. The NDAA did away with Posse Comitatus or would have EVERYTHING to do with violating Posse Comintatus.

        Wake up. The military AND police are working together, so this is all meant to be executed ON American soil.

      3. Ratt says:

        This has everything to do with Posse Comitatus.

        Posse Comitatus; the Act does not prohibit members of the Army from exercising state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain “law and order”; it simply requires that any orders to do so must originate with the United States Constitution or Act of Congress.

    3. Will says:

      Posse Comitatus refers to the use of US troops enforcing laws against US citizens on US soil. I used to to counter drug work while i was in the Army. Depending on what was being done, either federal or state troops would be called in. PC only applies to federal troops. State troops can do as the state government wishes. I did many an op where we walked right across peoples properties and set up, where JTF 6 couldn’t go anywhere near where we were. So is this training a violations of PC? Nope!

      1. Hoser says:

        So if the elections don’t go a certain way and Marshall Law is imposed, Americans get fired upon by US troops, you gonna be there to blindly help the government out?

        I’m going to be honest with you,if your answer is yes then at that point, I’m going to have a serious problem with you walking across my lawn.

      2. hassan says:

        hoser he will only be walking on those lawns where the area has been cleared. that’s what the drones are for. and yes, there is a contingency of servicemen that would have no problem taking out a civilians, iraqi or american makes no difference to them. but, many would have a problem with it, you can be sure if a situation were to ever arise, there would definitely be a split among the ranks. something to what you are refering to may work on an initial outset, but by no means would be full proof in the long run.
        more than likely various groups, or certain segments of the population would be targeted, and then proceed from there.

      3. artemis133 says:

        @Hoser It’s martial law, not Marshall Law. You’re welcome.

      4. TruthSquad says:

        Obviously your efforts were an absolute failure, since anyone can buy drugs anywhere and any time they want. Even in prison! The drug was is just a jobs progarm for nitwits like you.

      5. Peter Timmins says:

        That is why when I was working out of the FEMA Region X offices while in the Regular Army, we would NEVER request the National Guard be federalized under Title 10. We ALWAYS wanted them under Title 32, which left them under the control of the Governor. It then meant Posse Comitatus did not apply to them and they were then allowed to perform law enforcement duties for the State, and under State control. A good example of this was Katrina. The Regular Army units could do nothing but stand there and watch when they saw looting taking place, but the Louisiana National Guard units could go in and arrest the people looting. While I have a healthy skepticism for the motives that are behind many things our government does, I do know that the majority of our people in uniform take their oath to support and defend the Constitution serious and would refuse to carry out orders that were blatantly illegal and in contradiction to their oath.

      Sad times indeed. Get ready, things are going to get hairy.

    2. 1776 says:

      Of course Soros funds them and wants them to become violent. That way the (Globalist controlled) D.C. pawns can declare martial law & 86 the Constitution. Globalists like Soros despise our Republic and it’s (fleeting) freedoms.

      When you take a live frog and put it into a pot of cool water on the stove, then slowly start the heat to a boil, you will have no problem with the frog making a fuss. He will be cooked in no time and without so much as a leap of faith! But, when you put quite a few in together, you may have some trying to “stir it up”. So you eliminate them quickly from the population… err, pot. Frogs can tell you a lot about your world of “freedom”. lol

    2. Craig Brockman says:

      Yawn – the ignorance continues, and the conspiracy theorists reign. You guys come off leaving no question why our literacy rate is the lowest in the free world.

      1. Jay Hertzfeld says:

        Craig, don’t hate. “Conspiracy Theorists”, as you and many others like to label them, are quite often very literate. In fact, every “Conspiracy Theorist” is knowledgeable enough to understand the meaning of conspiracy theory, and probably knows a great deal more about history than you do.

        You’ve heard it repeated over and over again, “History repeats itself, and those who don’t understand the past are doomed to repeat it”. Everything Hitler did in Germany was legal. In Germany, at least, because he made it legal. If you assume we’re living in a free world, notice the pattern of laws that are oddly falling into place, giving the military and other government agencies control over civilians and the internet. The free world you hear your reporters and politicians speak of has far been gone, they just read the script because the writers know it will ease your nerves.

      2. Michael Burns says:

        Why? Our education system teaches tolerance, sex ed, and globalism, and not reading writing and arithmetic? Yeah, thought so.

      4. Ari says:

        Over the years the main stream media’s negative use of the word conspiracy and theory has done its job of making you redefine the actual words to now mean something totally different in your mind. Bottom Line: Conspiracy: Two or more plotting to cause harm.
        So if that is the case, then of course 911 was a conspiracy, as is many crimes.
        Now its just a matter of what theory do you believe. 19 guys with box cutters or that there was a more detailed planned operation that include demolition that took down WTC 7, which was not hit by an airplane. There is enough evidence that turns some of the theories into facts. Either way more than one person conspired to cause harm.

    Why not, there are many countries that we would consider a threat to American Democracy that are Urbanized. The military has done this in the past countless times, this is nothing new….only something for the news to talk about and create hype.

      Then why are they coordinating and working with the LAPD? Your hypothesis would be valid IF the LAPD was NOT involved.

    4. Ozlanthos says:

      Actually there are few places like LA. There just aren’t that many places with the population density and layout. Which leads me to believe this was more likely preparation for a civil incursion within Los Angeles. Seeing as they just past the NDAA and HR 3166, all they need now is an event to justify the capture, military detention, and eventual stripping of citizenship of United States citizens…. Keep your eyes open. They do not process legislation they do not intend to use!!!


    5. Brian says:

      Ozlanthos, Thank you for seeing through the haze today. I was hoping someone would clear this up. And it’s not Obama that will be the one setting this in motion as it has been in motion for years. While most of us have been concentrating on things that should be a no brainer (Black/White issue) They have been working on controlling all of us for their profit. Do you forensics and you will see their finger all over it! Your worried about black people and their worried we might unite and fight for our country!

    6. Ron Watson says:

      No they have not. this is in fact a violation of the law known as posse comitatus (sorry bad spelling) which forbids the US military to act in concert or train with american civillian law enforcement. this is in fact a very bad sign of things to come.

      1. George N. Weezie says:

        Yep, the spec-ops heard the call of the feds much as numerous Delta Team members were sent into Waco to ensure no living creature would make it out alive, though a few did only to be arrested and incarcerated.

      2. WarPony says:

        George N. Weezie is right. They tried the same in Montana and failed because the real-deal Militia showed (some 60K+ “tourists”). The media-militia (Govt.-sponsored) bowed out soon afterward! Now THEY’RE back! They use to play the same Urban Invasion exercises even after Montana – a “put-fear-in-the-People” game – all over the Country, but were far more successful with manchurian candidates doing school and church shootings. At least, until it was shown that these shooters were phsyco ops of the Govt. It’s all about taking our guns.

  24. Dave Shaffer says:

    How many years have they (military/police coordinated “training exercise”) been doing this? Huh? HOW? MANY? YEARS? God a’mighty, and you idiots are going to vote in four more years of the same. And I don’t (necessarily) mean Obama. You deserve the boot of a tyrant on your throat. Wake up out of your stupor.

  25. Matt says:

    I say we have terrorist cells in our cities they can not find until they surface.

  26. Mike says:

    They are practicing for use against US citizens. Congress just passed a law that Obama signed off on authorizing the US Military to detain US citizens in this country without charge for as long as they want. I’m saying this and I’m a member of the military. It is still illegal for the US Military to police this country, its in the Constitutuion, unless by executive order or there is a state of emergency.

  27. Central Scrutinizer says:

    I see that tin foil is still in fashion. The military regularly(and has done so for a long time) does off site training, as there are no full size city mock ups, on any military installation. The most realistic training for operating in urban environments, is to actually train in an urban environment. This is not an indicator that LA is the next location, for the military to conduct missions.

    1. George N. Weezie says:

      But they have never included local law enforcement in their exercises. The only role law enforcement had prior to clinton, was in securing the sites in order to protect the public. That is the difference. Next you’ll tell me that the NDAA and the FEMA camps are going to be used to for people who “voluntarily” show up for assistance. There is a reason the double-fenced FEMA camps have razor wire pointing inward rather than outward.

      1. Central Scrutinizer says:

        Law enforcement train with the military on a recurring basis. These aren’t traffic cops, nor are they standard infantrymen. These are counter-terrorism/hostage rescue missions, which multiple agencies are responsible for. It’s just that they have differing jurisdictions(i.e. law enforcement/FBI handle domestic locales, and the military handles situations over seas. It’s no different than Navy SEALs practicing on oil rigs, or merchant ships, for missions that they might be tasked with. Counter-terror units also practice at airports, boarding aircraft w/ role players, to practice counter-hijacking missions, etc…. This has nothing to do with FEMA, Alex Jones, Posse Comitatus, NWO, etc…

      2. George N. Weezie says:

        Yes, now they do train regularly with military, but this has only happened since the clinton reign of terror. Prior to that, it had historically been viewed as unacceptable under Posse Comitatus. You have been deluded into thinking this is harmless. There is only ONE REASON you would train together and that is to fight together. Why would the city go through the expense of training if they never intend on sending their SWAT teams into foreign lands? It is for regional conflict for which the NDAA was created which has gutted Posse Comitatus as well as the rest of the Bill of Rights.

      3. Central Scrutinizer says:

        The reason that you train together, is to learn. That’s the same reason why Delta/ST-6 train with the SAS/SBS, GSG-9, GIGN, FBI HRT, etc…. It’s very similar to doctors going to seminars/reading journals to learn the latest techniques. SWAT teams can learn from /teach their military counterparts, since they regularly operate in urban environments. As for FEMA camps, I wonder if you’d enlighten us, as to how many political prisoners are currently residing within their razor wire fences. If anything, these sites are for use in the event of major disasters. Not for those holding dissenting political views.

      4. George N. Weezie says:

        Yes, it would be difficult to point to an example for the sole reason that one does not exist. There is a difference between inter-unit “training” and “deployment”. At Waco, “Delta” team members were “deployed” SECRETLY at the behest of the DOJ and clinton himsellf/herself. If they lied then, do you not think it possible that they are lying again? We are not dealing with your described scenario of “cross training”, but rather we are dealing with commingling of forces. This is the very thing that led to the passage of Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 as reconstruction was becoming dictatorship by military governors and to ignore such abuse was to invite insurrection. We have become desensitized to this simple fact so that the majority of people see nothing abnormal with what is happening. That is the danger of short memories and partially the reason that history has been re-written in our children’s government indoctrination centers. It is all by design. If people knew the historic truth, there would be howling from coast to coast….and Ron Paul would be be our next president.

    2. George N. Weezie says:

      OK there brother. I’m sure you have nothing to worry about. It must be nice to still believe in the Easter bunny, tooth fairy and santa claus all rolled into one.
      Yes, inter-departmental training is not unusual. Law enforcement training with military IS unusual and there is no precedence for it in our history prior to the clinton regime. Our politicians assured us there was nothing nefarious about this relationship; “nothing to see here, move along”. Give me an example of civilian law enforcement training with the military prior to 1992…just one. The military is used for CONQUERING whereas law enforcement’s role WAS to keep the peace. The lines have been intentionally blurred so as not to upset the sheep who have dangerously short memories.

      1. Central Scrutinizer says:

        Counter-terrorism is a relatively new discipline. Delta didn’t come online till ~1977, and ST-6 was founded in the early 80s. Needless to say, it’d be difficult to point to historical precedents of cross training, too far in the past. SWAT teams regularly operate in urban environments, so their military counterparts can obviously learn from them. On the flip side, the SWAT teams can learn the latest counter-terror/hostage rescue tactics. Additionally, law enforcement agencies regularly train on military bases, that have ranges/courses set up, that they don’t have access to otherwise.

  28. John says:

    Welcome to Obama’s rendition of “1984”, California.

  29. George N. Weezie says:

    How much more do people need to see before they understand that these “exercises” have only two purposes: 1) the militarization and federalization of your local and state law enforcement agencies and 2) they are “exercises” in preparation for an economic collapse and the subsequent violence that will attend the collapse. They intend to take out any resistance to martial law using military force. Here’s the kicker; the collapse is taking place by design. The private central banking cartel intends to allow the country to tear itself apart so they will have total control. Control over credit, debt control (through “debt-money”, food and the tools for self defense that would allow the people to resist. If you survive, you will be an indentured servant to the “super-class”.

    1. Sylvia Wilkens says:

      I have a sick feeling you are correct.

  30. William says:

    The military has been doing this for a long time. Several years ago a unit of Marines spent one night in town working on urban operations. Oddly enough there were on the edge of one of the highest crime areas. The next day their helicopters were flying over pretty low for a few hours. Still, I can see some of the worry what with NDAA and other laws out there.

    1. George N. Weezie says:

      Things changed under the globalist stooge clinton. Recall the 1995 survey asking Marines at 29 Palms if they would 1)serve under UN command and 2) if they would fire on US citizens in the process of confiscating privately owned firearms.


      Does anyone recall clintons disdain for Posse Comitatus? Does anyone recall that clinton urged his minions to pass an act repealing Posse Comitatus? After Waco, they just decided that if they ignored the law, no one would call them on it. And here we are today…

  36. Obamabinlyin says:

    I wouldn’t want to be living in a big city like L.A. or NY, because that’s where the war against the American people (what all this “training” is in preparation for) will be militarized first.

    Voting for anyone other than Ron Paul in 2012 will practically ensure 4 more years of this danger to and tyranny over the American people.

      The tip of the big government spear. I don’t trust these men or the politicians who hold the strings. Mark my words, these same ‘heroes’ will fire on innocent Americans one day soon. The new breed of law enforcement drone has little respect for the constitution or this country, and it is by design. I’ve seen it firsthand. These military exercises are all about oppressing Americans, not phantom terrorists.

    Notice how it was stated that they train in terrain closest to what they next expect to operate in? Without a doubt they are preparing to start martial law since the elections are comming. If Obama looses the election he will stay in office by military force. The dictator has shown his hand! Be oreoared to become a nation of slaves and subjects.

  44. Max says:

    I always read comments on all sites that have stories like this… sadly, many people are still willfully ignorant. Fact is all the ducks are being lined up, and after the next false flag event, martial law will be inevitable. Americans will cower under the perceived “threat” from abroad, and lick the boots of the oligarchs for a simple crust of bread. Those who resist tyranny will be herded into “shelters”, for their own “safety”. Now that India and Iran have agreed to eliminate the use of petro-dollars, they will both be targets of the banksters. Iran or the “tea party” will be probably be blamed for the next 9/11, which will justify martial law. No more due process, guys like bombtech2 at the road blocks and on the little birds, and the America we knew is a thing of the past. Since they know many Americans are waking up, they will have to come out will all guns blazing, (figuratively and literally), and it will not be pretty. For those of you who have seen combat, you know once that genie is out of the bottle, there is no getting it back in.

    1. Hoser says:

      I have a different take on what can only be described as a marchall law exercise.

      We have been force fed by the media about these Occupy Wall Street crowds being the 99%, when they obviously aren’t.We see Soros recently talking about how they could become violent yada,yada,yada.

      Suppose Obama loses the election.What an absolutely perfect time for these rubes to start rioting,looting and burning cities across the country because their guy lost.I think Obama would possibly come on tv and say he has no other choise but to issue marshall law and hold on to power for the sake of the American people.
      This kind of military/police training exercise makes logical sense for that type of (orchestrated) senario.Saying this training is for overseas enviroments does not have a shred of logical truth behind it being there has never been and never will be a senario where a squad of LA police with be in another country helping the military in battle.

      1. Gary Nelson Harper says:

        Isn’t that an interesting scenario. POTUS loses election same manner as Gore/Bush, all hell breaks lose.. Martial law for the “good of the people”. Not that far fetched.

  46. UncleFred says:

    So it is possible this is a “joint training exercise” between civilian law enforcement and the military. However it is equally likely that the military is conducting urban training at a site that is similar to a foreign location using local law enforcement to ensure that separation is maintained with the local population.

    During the cold war SAC often conducted low level penetration exercises against American cities that were geographically similar to Soviet targets. Generally the populace was ignorant of these exercises.

  49. John Q says:

    It does have to make a person wonder. If it was practice for some disaster, why Special Ops troops? If it was practice for a large urban environment if ever needed over-seas, such as Tehran or something, then why do it in so many other cities across the US? Special Ops guys are the assault teams, the shoot first ask questions later guys with over-whelming fire power. Not exactly your crowd control or disaster aid/help like the National Guard or whatnot. Hmmm…

  50. Liberty or Death says:

    “Military and Banking” a terrible mixture. The thought ought to make your blood boil… GAME ON!!!

    1. George N. Weezie says:

      This has been coming since 1913, the year of the “Federal” Reserve Act as well as the collateral necessary to secure loans from said private entity, the 16th Amendment which allowed, for the first time, a direct income tax on the people. The FED is the 3rd iteration of this scam of private central banking in the US. Even Wilson, who was the rube who signed these laws into effect admitted a few years later what a drastic mistake he had made. It created a hole of debt, by design, that we can never pay back also by design. The loan sharks, headed up by the Bank of England, Fed, IMF, World Bank and the BIS have us by the balls.

  51. Charlie Manson says:

    They’re preparing for Helter Skelter

  52. Hoser says:

    Curious, they said this was a joint venture police/military exercise.Did they mean the police and military was doing a drill together or that the police was there just to cordon off the area so they could train.
    If this was the police and military training together then there is something seriously, seriously big coming down.
    I fully understand the need for our military to train in as a realistic enviroment as possible, that enviroment would “NOT” include training with our any civilian police departments.
    It’s always been said, it can’t happen here in the USA but if this is an actual joint training exercise with the military and civilian police training in tandem then it is alarmingly looking like it “can” happen here in the USA.

  53. SgtBilko says:

    this adulation of the military and all forms of authority is unhealthy and unamerican, count me as very concerned.

  54. Joe Esparza says:

    It is preparation for the time when the regular citizens revolt against their tyrannical, self serving government. Lock and load my friends…

  55. Jason says:

    “They do a lot of mockup training,” said Duran. “But it’s always best to get the closest terrain layout to what the objective is.”

    Duran said the military chooses training environments based on what they might be facing in the near future.


    Obama signs the NDAA, then say “oh this will never be used against American citizens.” Not even a month later an the Military is conducting drills in “the closest terrain layout to what the objective is.”


    1. Jay Martin says:

      Also the press release said this would happen on Thursday, but it happened Wednesday night. Probably went into Thursday after midnight but still, an element of deception here. Ready yourselves, the signs are right in our faces. The naive unbelievers will be the ones rounded up and processed at Dodge Stadium, then sent on train or bus to the FEMA camps that are suddenly being staffed.
      wake up people. eutimes.net/2011/10/china-warns-russia-of-coming-american-great-event/ – also check out infowars.com and google “government activates fema camps”. next, learn about “NDAA”, which makes American citizens terrorists without due process and allows the military to operate on OUR SOIL! C’mon people, wake up.

      You don’t have to be doomed. Just stop depending on the government for anything, keep a low profile, obey the law until it conflicts with your beliefs and at some point you must either go to another country or stand up, but unless you give up, you are never doomed.

    I see helicopters over my town all the time. We’re under the flight path of several air reserve bases and marine corps stations.

    Why do they fly low? The freeways. 😛 You could be in the air above your own neighborhood and not know where you are, so you head for the freeway, and find your way. 🙂 Easiest way to navigate when you’re being tested and can’t use any electronic navigation equipment. 🙂

    1. Chris says:

      D-money: That is not the same thing as a joint exercise between the police and the military over a major US city.

    2. Jay Martin says:

      The point is, they are not supposed to be doing this on American soil. All the bases, cities, COUNTRIES we own property on- the bases we have by the hundred millions and this could not be done elsewhere? Hellooo, can’t you see what is happening? Look at my other comments and please read more into this, look at what’s happened in just the past 6 months and then make your decision. Optimism is good, but we cannot be so incredibly optimistic that we become complacent or naive to what’s going on around us. We are human being, not sheep.

  65. btruth says:

    This is the USSA. We are in a fascist new world order police state. They are preparing for when “they” collapse the FIAT currency system of debt slave creating usury. AND/OR the next false flag operation. We were transformed from a 50 state nation, into what “they” call 10 FEMA zones. The banking mafia controls the ussa especially the MILITARY. NORTHCOM is the standing army we were warned about.
    RESEARCH PLEASE prove me wrong! operation’s;paperclip,northwoods,popeye,garden plot,cable splicer.mkultra,artichoke,cloverleaf,blue beam. PREPARE now, the take over is REAL. But the current OBVIOUS military training to kill civilians is proof enough.

  66. ac says:

    I can assure you that this is for the benefit of local law enforcement, not the Army. If you haven’t noticed we have been at war for 10 + years. The Special Forces has been conducting Counter-Terror operations for the duration. Training a large cities SWAT element in new techniques is not only normal but prudent.
    As for you jerks who think that the Army, (especially SF) would support a power grab by a president they already don’t like, think again.

Not by choice, but in self defense from their increasing attacks on us.

  71. Jesus De Leon says:

    So are they doing this to introduce us to the concept of having military folk on our streets and flying over our civillian head? Do they do this so we think its normal by the time there are violations on posse comentadas? You know especially adter the NDAA act.

  72. sffrontman says:

    Good point deskboy… getting rid of citzens to make more room for the invasion from Mexico. But the feds are missing one important thing…. almost all combat units are white. Proof of this is in the fact that more than 75% of casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan are white. Obama won’t get far sending white combat troops to kill white Americans.

  73. JustAGuy says:

    I bet most of the negative comments are from people living outside California. You see, Barack Obama is president now, so all those black helicopters flying above the sheeple in L.A. are for the sheeple’s own good. And all the sheeple said: Praise be Obama!

  74. matt says:

    Well they are probably doing urban scenario training and liasoning with the LAPD to ensure sites are closed and civilians don’t accidentally get into them. Don’t you want your military getting the best training in realistic environment, if you expect to count on them to save and defend you someday? If anyone thinks these exercises are anything more than training they give the federal government too much credit and foresight.

    When the civil war and race wars begin in this nation soon, they will start in LA.
    The civil war will be Obama and his communists against all of the rest of us.

The day of judgement for LA is coming.

  77. gatorgeez says:

    I saw something simular in Jacksonville a few years ago. An article in the paper said it was an exercise to secure the power grid and put the city in lockdown in case of rioting. Hhhmmmm! Couple this training with the new defense appropriation bill that the the military the right to enter any house or biz and arrest anyone without warrant or charge and it has all the makings of a dry run for a coup…

    STRUNG OUT CALLED IT YEARS AGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    (Song: Blackhawks Over Los Angeles)

    Curfew tonight in Hollywood
    As the insurgents drawing near
    Helicopters and ecstasy
    And the shot heard round the world
    The camera shines for channel zero
    As the cool kids running scared
    The army has got a brand new toy
    And they’re just waiting for the word

    Tonight it begins so lock your doors up tight
    Blackhawks over Los Angeles

    The civil strife between the left and right
    As the occupation falls
    The homeless have taken Beverly Hills
    And there’s smoke from city hall

    We never have seen it coming down this way before
    Blackhawks over Los Angeles

    And on and on they drone
    In the spotlight glare, this is crazy
    All broken glass and panic attacks
    Silicone and pillbox hat
    There’s panic in the streets tonight

    Curfew tonight in Hollywood and all the sirens drawing near
    Gonna call down an air strike as the shock reins clear
    There’s panic in the streets there’s a calling on the wire
    And the cameras got it all as we walk on through the fire
    As a crowd begins to gather…a shot rings out

    We never have seen it coming down this way before
    Don’t really know where else to hide

    And on and on they drone
    In the spotlight glare, this is crazy
    All broken glass and panic attacks
    Silicone and pillbox hat
    There’s panic in the streets tonight

  79. Hairy Wall says:

    Part of that defense act that the Obama administration pushed through Congress, and he had so many regrets signing. Now the military can act domestically against US citizens.

      After Ruby Ridge and all the gov’t lies about that, after Waco and 19 little kids incinerated and all the lies about that, with CX gas wafting through the compound, and the other fatalities there, after the Iraq war with no WMD found, after the lies about Jessica Lynch in Iraq and Pat Tillman in Afghanistan, after all the local news stories across the country about law enforcement agencies becoming militarized and buying drones, even law enforcement in non-urban, low-crime, rural environments buying quasi-tanks with federal money – you still don’t think there’s even a possibility that there’s a problem developing here? Sounds to me like you’re already taking Lithium, pal. Here;s a news flash for you, “Saint” – governments are not inherently honest, they are not inherently virtuous, and bureaucracies are almost always pushing out the boundaries of their authority and power. Maybe there’s nothing particularly problematic going on, maybe there is. But a head-in-the-sand type like you wouldn’t be my go-to guy for an opinion.

      Nuts are already high in protein. But I prefer steaks rather than vegetable and legume proteins. After some fifty odd years of observation, there is a definite trend toward paramilitary build up. Now it’s near completion with the recent defense act passed by Congress and signed by Obama. Surely the FBI, BATF, NSA, Secret Service, Border Patrol, ICE, DEA, and finally Homeland Security are plenty of domestic law enforcement. Why bring the military into the domestic mix? Here’s why I’ve never considered Sainthood as a viable vocation, they are usually martyred by there friends and enemies alike.

      I would think he’d better plan on taking the vast areas of real estate outside of the large cities. The cities are where Obama’s welfare constituency lives. Obama is an irrelevant figurehead anyway. Maybe TPTB plan on bumping him off (there was recently a Jewish newspaper that called on Mossad to do just that!) If so, the riots in the major cities would be epic.

      Or…it could be some terrorist attack (false flag or otherwise) which collapses the economy and the System.

    2. wntsmallgov says:

      That is a possiblity. I Would not put it past him at this point. He has done so much to take away the rights of the citizens and dictate on how we should live.

      Man! no such thing as black sir. If you ar talking about the melanated people of L.A. You are dead wrong.
      This thing that the military is doing involves everyone. Anglo-Saxon Misson will not take precedent. In fact, if I were you, I would be more afraid then your supposing that this military mess is just for BLACK and MEXICAN people.

  89. lee says:

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    There is evidence that employees from DoD, CIA and DOJ accepted bribes from Al Quida.
    How is it that 12 of the 9/11 terrorists could live for 2 weeks just 2 miles from NSA head quarters in Maryland.This after several of them had taken flight simulator lessons on Jumbo jet trainers and several of them where on State department terror watch lists.
    There is evidence that employees from DoD, CIA and DOJ accepted bribes from Al Quida.
    If DoJ and DoD employees where more concerned with doing their jobs than enriching themselves by stealing from suspects and taking bribes, then there might have been more a chance that 9/11 had never happened.
    Worse might be the fact that elements within the U.S. Intellignece agencies with intent create their own terrorists by carefully choosing suspects and through many 10’s of years of psycological and physical abuse create their own terrorists. Why, to prop up defense spending.
    My dog was poisoned to death, a stolen car was run into the front of my house, gang members are harrassing me, I get death threats, BB guns are being shot at my car when I drive, my car is being tampered with, money and jewelry has been stolen out of my house, very long term sleep deprivation, etc….

That just shows how callous they are, that they don’t care for the safety of those people. Believe me, they are up to something.

  95. awakeblondie says:

    It is all in preparation to militarize the police, as Janet Napolitano said they were going to do yesterday, so that they can implement martial law. They are going to use those guns on American citizens, round them up and ship them off via LAX ,where a barb wire fenced holding pen will process them as they await their flights to a friendly FEMA camp. Get ready people…what is coming is not going to be pretty.

  96. Greg says:

    Outside the courthouse in downtown Houston a few years ago, in broad daylight late in the afternoon, I saw a chopper carrying heavily armed men flying low overhead, low enough that I looked up to see what was going on, and the guy with a big gun whose legs were hanging off the side, made eye contact with me as they flew by. Inside the courthouse I asked security what was going on, and they just said “training”.

    The “urban” training may very well be partially aimed at overseas ops, but I do not believe that’s the only application. It’s much more likely that it’s also aimed at domestic ops here in the U.S., primarily aimed at terrorist attacks, but also very possibly aimed at suppressing civil disobedience or public rebeliion.

    There are too many places in the world, too many training facilities and bases around the world, for an operation of this type in L.A. to be exclusively directed toward preparedness for overseas ops. And what was the role of the LAPD? Were they merely providing public safety support, or were they active participants? If they were active participants, why would they be involved in training for overseas ops? Color me skeptical , especially given that all these law enforcement agencies across the country are now buying combat vehicles that are similar to tanks, using federal fending to do so, and using drones in domestic operations. No – I think there’s more to this than they’re letting on.

    Police Departments have been working with the Military for years. For them to actually go into a US City is not a good sign. One of the things that led up to 1776 was the fact that British Troops were the law. They abused their powers. With the allowance of Military Units to uphold Civil Law, should give everyone a sense of doom.

    The US Military does not have legal rights to operate within the US except for the following:
    1) A Gov. of a state asks for them for help
    2) Martial Law is declared due to a National Emergency and voted on by Congress (but the length of time is absolute in duration of operations and the President does not go around Congress. ). Makes one think if Obama goes around Congress for treaties (UN Constitutional) and to make laws, What else is he willing to do?
    3) Invasion
    4) To put down a violent revolt as per the US Constitution. (the Constitution also allows the right for its citizens to replace the government at any time)

    Granted SRT’s and HRT’s and SWAT (depending on the Departments name for the teams) work with Military to make sure they are well trained. There are criminals that have Military training of not fault to the Military.

    We are swamped with illegal aliens and crime and yet this is what is going on?

    I don’t see ICE out there busting the illegals; nah ICE is out on the internet taking domain names because after all that’s what immigration(s) custom(s) enforcement is for; the internet.

    The government should be afraid of it’s people; it’s people should not be afraid of their government.

    Who has the machine guns and helicopters? Not the people.

    No matter your personal theory on why this is happening, have you thought….and I mean REALLY THOUGHT and made a personal decision on whether to fight, or succomb? I’ll choose to fight, and I will probalby die, but we all die. I’ll die on my feet, and not on my knees thank you very much. A bull in the ring dies a much better death than a steer in a slaughterhouse….at least the bull has a chance….slight chance I admit, but it’s still better than being a steer.

    I was a Marine Corps Infantryman for 20 years. Never ever, not all, not once, or however anyone wants to call it did I or anyone else in my unit actively train in a city, town, berg, burb, village, ghetto with civilians present.
    Doing that type of training was an absolute no, no. We had our own training areas and environments, we didn’t need to scare the Hades out of the civilians.
    Chief Warrant Officer David Duran is full of horse squeeze that the military trains in whatever environment it needs. Sorry rotary wing jockey, the military doesn’t need to train where civilians live, and work, an you darn well know that. More government propaganda.

    In this day and age, seeing what we’ve been seeing, observing the increasing degrees, over the years, with which The People’s liberties and freedoms and rights are blatantly and casually tossed aside — then I would say this sort of thing seems very ominous indeed, and smacks of attempts at in-your-face intimidation by the control-freak totalitarian-minded types who are currently embedded in the halls of power.

    Goes real well with the TSA “checkpoints” so many liberal brainwashed drones are expressly OK with, coming soon to a bus-stop and supermarket near you!

    OK people this is done all the time. Here is the deal when a hotel goes under or some company does and the building is set to be destroyed both the Police and Military use it fr training. Why you ask because it is different then the same old training trargets use on every training area the military or police have. Its gives valuable training in Hostage rescue on a realistic target at next to nothin in cost. The same thing is down with old aircraft, busses and trains. It is not some plot to take over the country it is realistic training, Would you prefer tax dollars be wasted building a whole hotel, office building? or for minimum cost. The reason why the military abd Police are so successful is realistic training. Think about it. Quit the conspiracy BS.

    Governments around the world are preparing their military and law enforcement agencies in preparation for the time in the near future (this year) when the evolution of human consciousness will force governments to try and control the millions of people who are demanding change, e.g. the Arab Spring. Evolution in human consciousness will force a change that governments will be unable to stop. For years; television, video games, technology, surfing mindlessly online, over-eating, alcohol and drugs, in other words The Matrix, has kept our collective consciousness in a coma, it has kept us from caring for each other but its now time for us to shake ourselves, to unplug and wake up, see and hear what’s going on around us, to get involved in something that will inspire purpose to our lives. We all have particular skills that will help to help change our world for the better, so spread the word, get involved and expect positive changes in our future.

    On this evening, January 25, 2012 at around 11:46 PM, in Downtown, Los Angeles, where is the footage of what looked like a small passenger jet plane, that maneuvered around and just barely missed the top of the Staple Building, while 2 small, I guess, helicopters, followed close behind, on each side? They almost looked as though they were trying to escort the plane out of the city. Was that edited out of the video on this page in this “LAPD And Special Forces Conduct Military Maneuvers In The Skies Above Downtown LA” article??? At this time, I’d just driven from the 5 FWY South onto the 110 FWY South and started seeing the various sky tactics almost immediately. Then, coming up on the Staple Building, while still on the FWY, I saw the Jet. Where did it come from. Doesn’t a jet have to take of from a runway??? Is there a large runway somewhere in Downtown Los Angeles???

    wow, intelligent and informed people posting here….. tis a relief. I am sure there are others here who are prior military, and combat veterans…… and with all due respect.. That said I am now just going to tell it how it is.

    For those of you who are still extremely numb or drained of your energies from fighting off the life-long conditioning of the toxic systems we’ve ALL come to ACCEPT, allow for me to make clear the haze. I am a highly decorated, US Army,multi-war combat veteran who as of the effective year of 2009 been listed as combat disabled – 50%.

    That said, allow for me to be VERY clear. Revolution is imminent. The faster you/we all get to a place of accepting this fact, the quicker WE ALL will begin to create and accept a world MUCH closer aligned to the hearts and souls of All Good People.There is NO stopping a future as such, only delays along the pathway brought on by indecisive choice from those who have yet to realize our future inevitable as such.

    Now is the time to begin to dream of, invent and share alternative approaches to this toxic world that we’ve somehow come to accept. How might you envision our world of tomorrow based on our world learning’s of yesterday? What would you like to see done differently so that our world is a world closer aligned to those of all good people? How might you dream up or invent creative approaches to peaceful revolution? Ask yourself, “What has to change?”.

    The end of the age is upon us, and though short is our history one thing stands clear when faced with the changing of the ages, that is, drastic changes become us, and our surroundings. So if indeed change is at the root of our inevitable future, and you have risen to a level to believe as such, then there is only one thing left to do. Make a choice on the type of future that you would like to create and embrace, and begin to become the change you’d like to see.

    Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, Revolution need not be violent.
