On July 30, Infowars reported on an Illinois Army National Guard plan to put Armored Security Vehicles on the streets. “A Springfield-based military police company will be training with a new armored vehicle in the area this week,” the Associated Press reported. “The Illinois Army National Guard says training with the new Armored Security Vehicles will start Thursday and run through Sunday.”

An Infowars reader captured an image of the combat vehicles over the weekend. “Here is a picture of the Illinois National Guard driving the new armored military police vehicles through the streets of Springfield, Illinois.”

Staff Sgt. Daniel Becker told the AP people shouldn’t be afraid of the vechicles. “No, they shouldn’t be afraid — they need to let the idea sink in that it is normal for armed troops to be on the streets. After they get used to military vehicles on the roads, they will need to get accustomed to military checkpoints like the ones in Iraq and Afghanistan,” we wrote at the time. 

P.S. “Army National Guard” can refer to either the STATE National Guard, or the FEDERAL National Guard. Pay attention. News reports almost never specify which one they are talking about. The federal National Guard is under direct command of the President &, under current regulations, the President can take control over state National Guards any time he perceives a threat to federal authority … We are this [] close to total & complete martial law. –SCMLA
