Armored military vehicles to patrol in Wisconsin

Armed soldiers have been seen marching down residential streets in several towns and cities across America, for example:

The latest are armored military vehicles patrolling Wisconsin’s neighborhood.

Paul Joseph Watson reports for, August 7, 2012:

Armored military vehicles of the type used to hunt for insurgents in Afghanistan are set to patrol roads in Sheboygan County, Wisconsin as part of a training exercise on behalf of the U.S. Army Reserve.

“(Capt. William) Geddes said the U.S. Army Reserve wanted to alert the public to the training dates so residents are not alarmed when a pack of heavily armored military vehicles is driving around the county,” reports

The exercises are being run despite the fact that troops driving the M1117 Armored Security Vehicles have already received their basic training. “They’re vehicles that these military officers might use if they’re deployed, patrol vehicles,” Geddes said, adding that the drills were to ensure that officers didn’t get “rusty” in handling the M1117s.

The vehicles, which have been used overseas in Afghanistan, are described as being “strange,” “intimidating” and “heavily armored,” while being the same size as a large SUV.

Local authorities have apparently not even been briefed about the planned exercises, which will run until August 17.

“Sheboygan County Administrator Adam Payne said he had not heard about the training exercises. Two city officials declined to comment, because they also had heard nothing about the training,” states the report.

Geddes urged citizens not to create safety hazards on the roads by stopping to gaze at the vehicles.

The increasing phenomena of military training drills taking place away from military bases and amidst the general public has led to fears that the American people are being acclimatized to accept a potential future declaration of martial law.

Back in June, residents in St Louis were shocked to see heavily armored U.S. Army vehicles patrolling neighborhoods as part of an exercise. However, the local media responded by featuring ‘vox pops’ interviews with people who supported the use of the military in order to “cut down on crime,” despite the fact that using the Army for domestic law enforcement is forbidden under the Posse Comitatus Act.

Advocating that America ape foreign countries where troops patrol the streets, one resident told Fox 2, “I think it’s the same way when you go to other countries…they don’t have police officers they have troops, and I think it kind of scares a lot of people…it might cut down on a whole lot of crime because they don’t know if they’re military or the police.”

“I think it’s fantastic because it might slow down some of the crime rate,” added another.

Predictions of mass civil unrest have fueled fears that the federal government and the U.S. Army are gearing up for domestic disorder. Both the U.S. Army and the Department of Homeland Security recently purchased large quantities of riot gear in anticipation of trouble at the upcoming DNC, RNC and the presidential inauguration. The DHS has also purchased 450 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point bullets.

A recently leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” outlines how military assets are to be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.

On page 20 of the manual, rules regarding the use of “deadly force” in confronting “dissidents” are made disturbingly clear with the directive that a “Warning shot will not be fired.”

As an example of how high tensions are running, the following You Tube video, which shows over a hundred tanks being transported through Burbank, California, is also causing consternation amongst those that fear some form of martial law could be just around the corner.

  1. I am r eading article from all over the United States about armoured vehicle convoys on trains and roads, about instances like the one in this article above. call me suspicious, but there’s an awful lot of coinkydinks. My theory is the establishment of troops in place for possible martial law.


  2. Thank you Dr. Eowyn and Miss May for this remarkable post! I wonder if there is any relationship to Paul Ryan being chosen as the vice-president in terms of timing? Interesting!


  3. It will not be easy to persuade a patriotic volunteer military to turn their guns on their fellow citizens.


  4. What amaze’s me, this administration won’t even protect our borders from; foriegn envaders, the same with perverts, career criminals, child prostitution rings, Communist Professers (Collage), Un-Constitutioal Laws (Sharia), etc…. Now, the same administration threatens innocent American lives, with military force. Arn’t…We The People, the very citizenship they took oath to protect? I know this as a VN Vetran (1969), Americans….when backed into a corner are a very tough and persistant adversary. I fear the POTUS implementation of Martial Law will indicate the failure in Government and Do Process. This mandate on American soil could ignite a civil unrest….like not seen since the Civil War. American soil could become a battleground exceeding any previous war. The ramification could include the search and holding accountable peoples in various positions that allowed and perpatrated the failure of America.
    Freedom-for-the-people…will reign. Respectfully sbmitted.


  5. Today there was another article by this same author saying the National Weather Service is buying 16,000 rounds of hollow points. and NHS is buying bullet-proof checkpoint booths. wth??


  6. Look for my post tomorrow!


  7. I would like to know too. Obviously they are not being taught the Constitution and that they are to defend that above all else. Scary indeed. Without our young men and women whom have taken oaths to defend what this country stands for and not just blindly take orders, we do not stand a chance. Everyone who know someone in the military or law enforcement, whether current or ex, should give them info on Oath Keepers.


  8. On the bright side…deer season will be interesting….
    Why do I hae a feelin’ that they’ll be deployed around
    Chicagostan, MilWaukeestan, New Faluga (Detroit)and Flint.
    Come to think of it ,Miniapolis/StPaul has the largest population
    of the ‘peaceful’ Hadje’s.


  9. Glad I’m not living there, good luck with obama martial law.


  10. Has anyone bothered to look up the source links provided – none of them load or have an Error 404 page. Not good.


    • The only problematic link was the one to the Infowars article. I had made the mistake of embedding a link to one of FOTM’s posts instead. There was no Error 404 message.

      Everyone of the other links works.

      I just fixed the Infowars link. Thank you.
