Absolute it's about conditioning.
If this was a necessary training drill for (insert lame excuse), there would have been a public announcement warning the citizens not to worry about excessive gunfire and black helicopters.
THIS is all about freaking out the people and allowing them to think the worst, thereby only heightening their fear when the time comes. And coercing them into accepting "help."
I take a different opinion on the conditioning, think about the first time you were around gun fire the noise probably made you flench but as you spent more time around it you loose that fear. I say Thank You Military for training average citizen's to be one more step ready for War,just be sure your on the citizen's side or you loose.
This is an event that occured under Bush II. Here is the explanation they gave;
"Walt Sokalski, a spokesman for the Army Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg, told Xpress, "The reason we do not normally put things in the newspaper is because, when we do that, we end up having a large crowd [of spectators] and that impacts the local police department, because they then have to worry about crowd control."
If this FTX is supposed to demonstrate the quality of the joint training and intimidate the civilian population, it failed. If this is a PSYOPS, who ever wrote it had no great talent. Did anyone ever see any person on the OPFOR do anything except play grabass?
Its also conditioning the potentially armed resistence. If we didn't believe in the possibility of conspiracies, we would be comforted by the presence of our military brothers and sisters. The fact that our own government has lied and deceived us only encourages conspiracy theories. They are trying to push us to react so they can call for disarmament and marshall law.

If O’Reilly wanted a true 2nd Amendment debate, he’d have Dr. Suzanna Hupp on his show.
*** NOT HOLDING MY BREATH!
The “O” in O’Reilly stands for OBTUSE…..that should be the “Word of the Day”!

Scary to think how much danger the 50 y/o Holmes may be in now b/c of ABC’s speculation! Irresponsible, agenda driven, liberal media lemmings!!!! All these pro-Marxist useful idiots know is that the “ends justify the means.”
Prayers for all the innocents affected by this evil! Don’t let this change who we are as a Nation!
I don't get any of my news from the MSM . They have given up the mantle of responsible journalism and become partisan hacks.

If you feel that morality in America is degrading….support people and businesses like Chick Fil A who take a stand.

The Lame Stream Media has proven, SEVERAL TIMES, that it CANNOT be trusted!
I smell and propaganda driven, liberal-biased, pro-Marxist, editing troll’s work.
Anyway you “cut” it….this wreaks of a set up.
Stay strong Uncle Ted….we’ve got your back!

Interesting how these minorities HAVE an ID to surrender to get “Obama Money” and set themselves up to be scammed, but it is racism to insist they present and ID to vote.

Where’s Ted Nugent’s name?
April 5, 2012 at 2:05pm
I’m sick and tired of progressive liberals pushing their agenda on US! Separation of Church and State is NOT in the Constitution. It was Jefferson’s advice to a Baptist preacher to KEEP the gov’t. from meddling in church matters, NOT to remove God from schools. (Rant off)

In the immortal words of Ted Nugent, “Animals have a right to two things: butter and garlic.” LOL
Did you know Socialist Sweden has banned homeschooling for Religious and Philosophical Reasons? Yep and If Obama get’s re-elected I fear he will move in this direction. Anybody But Obama 2012!
Is this idiot out of his mind?
What has happened to common sense?
These are not your children, if you want children of your own try finding a mate. Preferably a human one and not an anime of a human on line. But it's best if people like this don't reproduce...
So a tutor that parents hire to teach their kids piano are also a co-parent?
Can I co-parent a teacher's kid?
That comment is a small and rare window into the mind and mentality of a socialist/statist/liberal. Your kids belong to us. We are just as entitled to parent them as we see fit as you are. Wow very telling indeed. That must of just slipped out.
I'm sorry for my reaction but Socialist morons like this drive me nuts. Things like this happen in the old USSR & Cuba, even worse, the State would take children and raise them as they saw fit. Like athletes, dancers and alike. They would just take them away from their parents.
Is this what we can look forward to under a second Obama term...?
Even the reporter was taken back by his insane comment and that is saying a lot with the media today!
When the guard dog sees himself as the homeowner, time has come to neuter.
My children are home schooled also. No failing school system to worry about and no violence in our school. My family's prayers go out to the victim's of today's shooting.
While you may home school your children, the rest of society has to understand that the statement about child care givers being co-parents is absolutely a reality. I don't care how you feel on the subject. If you think that you can send your child to the care of another person for 6 hours or more a day where said person gives them more attention than you give your child in a week, they are having an impact upon how your child will develop and think. To say otherwise is ignorance.
I'm not justifying the teachers having this man strip searched and put in a jail cell while his home was ransacked, not in the least. In fact, had it been myself in that situation; I would have found a gun or made something equivalent and revisited the police station or school to show them how displeased I was with their complete disregard for my human rights. But the reality is that if you send your children to school, they will learn more than math.
Since they are co-parents they have the right to post-abort their child if they aren't developing right.
Correct. they haven't a mind
These morons have no conscience mind, because they had anesthetized parents, and couldn’t possibly understand they’re dealing with cognizant parents’ undeniable love for their children.
That reporter is an unapologetic conservative. They are the Canadian Fox news. A pale shadow of them anyway.
That's great. Most of our founding fathers were home schooled too. And those that went to public school, well, let's just say, the Government had no place to dictate anything therein.
Unfortunately, while Canada follows a "co-parent" initiative, the US follows a No-Parent policy. Go figure.
Go to the bottom of the page and listen to the "Home Schooling" topics:
i do believe adolf hitler took kids and helped raise them also
*If "Home Schooling" doesn't show up, go to page 2 and then back to page one. It's there.
co parents huh. nice. you will be paying for half their education, food, shelter, clothing, etc... thank you! alright! we are sending the bills.
Why don't you come co-parent my A$$....
By kissing IT!!!
Derogatory Comments. They're fantastic!
SGTB! Thank you for the reality check. To a five-year-old in school all day,
a teacher or other care giver = SURVIVAL!
I have a dream, that one day as we start to seriously deport illegal aliens from this Country that we, by force, make all peoples of this mindset work in the onion fields, the meat packing plants, the orange groves etc...and are prevented from doing anything more.
it is time to start refusing to do anything the government says. most people are cowards and give in without putting up a stink. if everyone refused to follow a particular law or regulation just what do you think would happen? it is not possible to arrest or prosecute millions of people. we could show the bureaucrats that the people are in power not them.
This is why we homeschool too.
This should work fairly well in our great urban settings as the dad is rarely home, or even known. Think that sounds harsh? Harsh is the dems keeping this anti-family situation in place for so many years. Yea, I know, "war on poverty" but just look at the results. And they are not an accident. The dems have successfully propagated generations of dependents with their policies and dependents to them are votes. Anyone else see this coming full circle???
Wow look how far we have come since 1969?
Can't imagine what kind of country we will live in come 2025
Canada is a big place. Money to be made in the lightly populated energy fields. The cities will be absolutely unsafe by then IMO.
Reason #4,627 that we homeschool.

Our local school had a young girl attacked by a mob in the restroom, severe head injury, while other girls stood guard. The school talked with the girls involved. My granddaughter had a teacher send her with something to the office, and she was threatened by a group of girls, my daughter now home schools her and younger siblings. It seems to be the ONLY way to protect your kids, I pray for the kids who have parents who can't home school. The public school system needs dismantled and parents set up a new system with the money going to private or charter schools.

Beckel feigning indignation is laughable. It’s his “shtick”!
I’m 100% behind LT. COL. / REP. Allen West. He deserves my respect and the titles he EARNED!
Beckel’s a commie joke….glad he’s on Fox to remind us of the leftist lunacy!
Keep ‘em coming Uncle Bob!

Yep, when YOUR mom is in a medical emergency….I’m sure you’ll laugh your butt off too.
It’s NOT a stupid video game….our youth are too desensitized these days!
 January 26, 2012 at 1:50pm
The reality was the woman was having a medical emergency. It was obvious by the video that the driver was in distress of some kind. Rather than show concern for the driver, or even others on the road, these imbeciles laugh and joke at a possible tragedy in the make.
The young men who took the video are BOILS ON THE BUTT OF HUMANITY….IMHO.
