In May we reported that reports were surfacing of multi-state National Guard mobilizations. We opined that this might be due to the Gulf disaster and that FEMA may be taking pre-emptive steps for imminent evacuations. In June, Fox News confirmed that 17,500 NG soldiers were being deployed to the Gulf in “minimal roles.”
Based on troop movements and the severity of the oil disaster, those without their head buried in the sand were able to deduce that the National Guard would be in Gulf areas for policing actions, and if necessary, mass evacuations.
A report from the Dallas Examiner suggests that the National Guard is now moving to secure parts of the oil-leak affected areas:
A rapid military build-up and an unconfirmed road-block maneuver is being conducted, along with a visible exodus of residents in the Barataria Bay area of Jefferson Parish in South Louisiana. This news from Intel Hub coincides with the new military rule, gently broken to the public.
Reporters ad photographers are now required to obtain from the military and carry papers in the region, starting with reporters and photographers, a psyop squarely focusing on “public victory” rather than covert military take-over in the Gulf and martial law in the region.
South Louisiana residents who have seen hurricane emergency operations for decades say they have never seen anything like this type of emergency preparedness according to the report.
At midnight, the military moved into the Baratarria Bay area and immediately began setting up the road blocks.
Sunday evening after a call to his radio listeners for ‘intel soldiers’ to phone in information, Intel Hub Radio host Shepard Ambellas received calls from military personnel reporting they have seen a massive build up of combat troops, heavy combat equipment and weaponry including Active Denial Systems.
This is not your run of the mill evacuation planning. Normally, this is left to local emergency responders. Considering the magnitude of the spill and potential for catastrophe it makes sense that the National Guard has been deployed. However, officials have yet to announce publicly that the National Guard has enacted a state of martial law or that evacuations are about to take place.
Other than a massive military exercise or media blackout controls, it is hard not to think that the Guard is planning for something serious, significant and large scale:
“Of course they’ll give some ‘Simple Simon’ excuses for the military and the road-blocks.
“Either we are going to see masses of people getting sick or a mass evacuation.
Smith says, “These people reporting this have lived here all of their lives and say this is is very out-of-the ordinary.
“One woman said it looks like Afghanistan down there.”
Something is up.
Though we’re not seeing any troop movements in the Houston, TX area, from the looks of things, parts of Louisiana are now under military control.
