    Black Hawk Helicopters and Tanks Invading Your City? Is This the End of America?

    At the time of this writing, Black Hawk helicopters are whizzing around my city of St. Louis firing blanks. Military tanks are rolling through neighborhoods in St. Louis. According to authorized reports, they are conducting urban assault strategy. Chances are they are doing similar things in your city as more and more major American cities are being added to the list of cities where urban assault tactics are being exercised. In the resources below, you will see information about approximately 14 of those cities which are currently a part of this exercise. Every day, more cities have been added to the list.

    To say the least, it is frightening for the residents of cities to see these exercises and to hear fully automatic military weapons firing blanks as they maneuver through the streets of their downtown areas. In many cases, we are told that no warning has been given including warnings to the police.

    Combine this with the multiple stories that have been presented from some pretty reliable sources that military leaders are being put to the test regarding whether they are willing to fire on American Citizens, there is reason for serious alarm.

    Please be aware that these actions are completely without precedent; there has been no official word that these exercises would be carried out nor for what purpose; and it seems more than clear that our military has already had plenty of practice in urban assault, but not on American soil.

    Remember that accidents can happen in military exercises. Suppose someone mistakenly puts live rounds in one of the helicopter’s devastating Gatling guns. The consequences could be enormous. Suppose there is a collision with one of these deadly helicopters loaded with fuel. There are all sorts of dangerous scenarios possible for citizens of densely populated areas.

    Given the absence of any official government information forthcoming on these exercises, we are left with only the ability to speculate as to the reason for such exercises. There can be many speculations, but I fear none of them are good.



    1. Perhaps the military is practicing urban assault in major cities because they have information that we are in danger of imminent attack from some sinister or foreign assault. Perhaps there is reason to believe that we are in danger of an invasion or even nuclear attack from a foreign power. If this is the case, I cannot imagine who or what it might be, but I might be willing to believe that the actions of the military and our government are warranted if this is the case. It is, however, difficult to imagine such a scenario and I would discount it.
    2. The government is legitimately concerned about the growing citizen hostility and talk of revolution, nullification of federal laws, and Civil War. Perhaps, this is an effort to frighten the citizens by exercising a display of military power and might in order to deter actions of an armed citizenry who may be perceived as threatening rebellion.
    3. Perhaps, the President of the United States has determined that this is his last opportunity to “Change America,” as he promised in his first election. Maybe, what we are seeing is the exercises needed to actually disarm and overthrow the citizens of America to establish a dictatorial Socialist government in the United States. If such an action were being planned by the President, it would undoubtedly be necessary for the United States House and Senate to be captured and killed or put into prisons. While there are those that will think I have lost my mind for suggesting this, it is certainly one possible way in which the agenda of Socializing America could be expedited.
    4. Possibly, this is an exercise to prepare for a rapid and deliberate attack on the Second Amendment of the United States whereby, they could quickly and effectively disarm the citizens of the U.S. before they had a chance to realize that the assault is against them.
    5. Perhaps it is truly just exercises for some unknown future danger that may occur; however, it seems that we have seldom done so much to prepare for future and unknown events. It seems unlikely that we would begin now.


    Personally, I call for the citizens to flood your government Representatives and Senators with a demand to know why these military exercises are being conducted across America. I call upon the governors of every state that is experiencing these exercises to demand full disclosure from the White House and advise Americans as to the reason for these seemingly hostile behaviors. At this point, I stop short of asking the governors to protect their citizens by calling out the National Guard of each state to repel any actions by U.S. assault vehicles.

    Remember, that these are all speculations, but every citizen in the U.S. should certainly be concerned. Why aren’t these helicopters and tanks, etc. conducting exercises on our southern border or even protecting that border? Why whiz around our most populated cities instead?

    the word you want is populated, not populace. poor grammar only makes you vulnerable to attacks from leftists, no matter how many links you have for reference material.

    Oh, Ron ... this is the type of comment I expect from the Left. It was a typo, not a grammatical error. The word wasn't misspelled, so it wasn't detected. If we had a full-time, paid staff to review all of our blogs, well, that kind of error would probably be caught and corrected. However, we have an all-volunteer staff and the site does not sell ads or generate revenue. We do our best, but mistakes happen. Next time, consider sending a "I found a typo" note to this group of hard-working bloggers who love our country enough to work through the night after a long day at our 'real jobs.' All of us at The Bold Pursuit just want to do our patriotic best to present well-researched and objective articles. Thank you for reading our blogs.
