According to a report and post at The Libertarian Review, fully armed soldiers from the Minnesota National Guard, Unit 2-136 CAB (B Company) were photographed patrolling the streets of Crookston, MN.
Although the report seems authentic,theintelhub.com is attempting to verify this report. Readers from the area with first-hand knowledge of Minnesota National Guard patrolling the streets is encouraged to contacttheintelhub.com at:email@example.com
The source of the photograph is reportedly a woman named “Maggie”.
When approaching the troops to take photos, one of them commented, “Just training Ma’am – Joining up with another patrol at the rally point.” Another troop, when asked what he was training for commented, “To be honest ma’am, I don’t know.”
This is classic compartmentalization. Taking orders without question is a hallmark of the military. Not long ago, theintelhub.com posted an article asking, “Will U.S. Troops Fire on American Citizens?”
One should be gravely concerned as this kind of military planning and exercise occurring more frequently – events are progressing by the week.
On Tuesday, InfoWars posted a report of this ‘event’ and stating that “Guard members previously hunted insurgents in Iraq”. MORE AT SOURCE
Army Convoy Heading Towards NATO Summit As Chicago Law Enforcement Prepares For War With Protesters

Chicago police and security personal are set for what they seem to believe will be a full scale battle with protesters during this weekends NATO Summit.
With numerous protest groups set to launch widespread protests throughout the weekend, the police state is out like never before.
In a move eerily reminiscent of the Soviet Union and East Germany, multiple activists were arrested and literally disappeared just days before the summit.
An article published by RT quoted a National Lawyers Guild spokesman in regards to the pre crime arrests:
Hermes adds to the Tribune that “there’s absolutely no evidence of wrongdoing,” and that law enforcement officers were simply trying to make the activists “disappear” days before police expect major anti-NATO protests in Chicago.
“We were literally calling all morning and all afternoon to try to contact these people,” Hermes says. “That’s why we used the term ‘disappeared.’ ”
In a separate statement offered to an NBC News station in Chicago, Hermes adds,
“The city has so far not indicated the reasons for the raid, what they are charging the protesters with, nor provided any evidence of wrongdoing”and that the NLG was still seeking a copy of the search warrant used in the raid.
“Preemptive raids like this are a hallmark of National Special Security Events,” Sarah Gelsomino of the National Lawyers Guild and the People’s Law Office adds in a press release.
“The Chicago police and other law enforcement agencies should be aware that this behavior will not be tolerated and will result in real consequences for the city.”
The search warrant was not shown to those arrested for 4 hours after the arrest and was missing a signature from a judge. (making the warrant completely illegal)
Meanwhile, security services (the FBI and Secret Service) are planning to jam cell phone towers throughout Chicago in order to disrupt first amendment protected protests.
