Military choppers buzzed around my place last night in downtown Saint Paul - with no warning

Video here:


With no warning for residents, military helicopters flew low Monday evening over St. Paul and Minneapolis in a federal training exercise, about which officials released almost no information.

The exercise -- reportedly involving U.S. Navy Seals with Army pilots, engaging in rappelling exercises in an urban setting -- began just before 8 p.m. and was scheduled to last until midnight.

Seems irresponsible to

Seems irresponsible to conduct such 'exercises' in a populated area should one of those choppers go down, crashing into a populated high-rise. Especially given they have bases supposedly designed for just such training. Conditioning? So when they do it for real your first thought will be it is just more training?

Maybe they were afraid of another "Rally For the Republic!"

Like we had in Sept, 2008.

Did you attend that? It was a very special event.

Lots of good memories fo me. I met Dr. Paul 3 times during my 3 days in town.

Met Jesse Ventura too.

buy it .. read it. Novel with need to know information.

buy it .. read it. Novel with need to know information. A fiction novel about college friends that see the direction thing are going. What they do and what happens when it begins and after it starts. It was passed along to me and could not put it down.


Please use this link

So the Daily Paul can get a commission. There is a link to amazon in the upper right in the blue bar.


Edit: never mind. I see that the link still has the DP referral even though it looks just like a plain one. My link was changed to a plain one too. Does the site have a script that changes this automatically or something? Just wondering.


"A St. Paul official who asked not to be identified said there was an understanding that local law enforcement would receive military hardware in exchange for the city's cooperation in the exercise."

And when you agitate the peaceful citizenry with military hardware, you might just have a reason to need that military hardware.

They often fly over my house...

but I just figured it's because I give them so much hell.

The most notable experience was one day when I stayed home. I was sitting on my back porch when a small (private looking) jet flew low over my place immediately followed by a fighter jet flying perpendicular to the horizontal with one wing tip pointed towards the ground. I could almost see the whites of the fighter pilot's eyes.

The civil war is about to go full blown.

They disarmed the people now it is time for them crush freedom under their boot of crime.

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...

The urban warfare scene in Furgeson isn't enough,

let's have some Navy Seal guys rappelling from military gun ships over Minneapolis/St. Paul!?! Getting Citizens used to seeing a military presence. Same as live fire exercises from gunships over Galveston. Terrorist drills in your local High schools for conditioning your children. Getting them used to seeing a military presence. I'm just waiting for the flood of new disability claims from people contracting PTSD from seeing all this 'action', like the ones coming home from all the mayhem we create around the rest of the world isn't enough.
