War Game Plans Over City Ignored By Legacy Media

We are at a loss to understand why the legacy media has refused (declined) to share the plans of the United States Air Force at Mt. Home to expand its training range to include the sky over the city of Boise and eight other Idaho towns.

Several GUARDIAN readers have asked why there has been no coverage in the local TV or print media. They have even gone so far as sending copies of the public notices the Air Force has issued, but still no news.

In short, Mountain Home plans to practice “urban warfare” in the sky over Boise to be coordinated with ground forces who are said to be parked in paved parking lots and along paved streets. The ground troops will be “plain clothes” and use laser beams to identify targets for flights of either two or four F-15 fighters to electronically attack targets.

The Boise public hearing is set for March 12, 3:00 – 6:00 pm at the Boise Main Library, Marion Bingham Room 715 S. Capitol Blvd.

  1. I fear for our nation
    Mar 6, 2018, 11:06 am

    As was recently publicly explained by a US Congressman at the center of the Fake News eruption in Washington DC, “The US Media complex no longer exists”. It’s now a complete propaganda puppet show. Just talking heads full of mush driven by political agenda. (One of the main men on NBC does not even have a college degree, several locals don’t). AND the political agenda in Boise is?? to never question the actions of the military. Thus we get nothing if military is doing something of concern.

    Notice any young hungry local journalists who manage to produce something newsworthy but pressing of politicos are quickly reformed, or no longer get good assignments. One of the biggest meatheads (painful to listen to him he sucks so badly) on local TV is routinely given the best stories because he is a reliable propagandist. Further, many a securely employed journalist across the nation finds it necessary to blog just to get the word out, thus the rise of independent outlets like The Guardian. Next step is to take the internet away from The Guardian.

    I fear for our nation. The media is the only group with the power to keep the politico in check. Without it we will quickly evolve into oligarchy. Some would point to Team Dave and say we are already there.

  2. It is as though they are waiting for permission from someone or a script to follow if they do.

    Recent past experience has shown them to be in lockstep with their reporting – gone are the days of investigative reporting.

  3. Computers attacked after posting Public Notice
    Mar 6, 2018, 1:39 pm

    Since I posted this “Public Notice” about Urban CAS proposal on a community facebook page, my personal computer has been attacked, and internet service to it was cut off. Another computer reported a port attack this morning.

    Here is what I want to post now, from MicroWiki:
    A Military dictatorship is a system of government within which the state is synonymous with the military, usually due to the Chief of Staff serving as the Head of State or otherwise the most powerful figure in the government. A common variation of a military dictatorship is a military junta, where a number of renowned Generals or other senior military figures rule as a committee. Such a junta may function as a legislative and executive body, as an executive body or purely as the cabinet of ministers for the dictator.

    We are getting pretty close to some sort of Military Dictatorship.

  4. Recognize the Signature Secrecy
    Mar 6, 2018, 6:25 pm

    Recall when USAF scoping team was to visit ANG base in Boise last year, the City of Boise and ANG kept the date secret, so residents opposed to the F-35 would not show up. In other 4 states the date of the visit was published.
    This time the City must have coordinated with the local media to not announce the dates of Public Scoping Meetings for Urban CAS Training Spaces.
    The reason must be the same: the City of Boise is hoping to get F-35s for the ANG ASAP, by claiming the only Realistic Urban CAS Military Training Area in the whole country.
    I recognize the signature secrecy.

  5. On a related note:

    Rumor has it that the mayor is running someone to oust Rep. John Gannon from his Dist. 17 House seat because he openly opposed basing the F-35 here.

    Speaking of the Dave in Team Dave, has anyone actually seen him in a couple of months? Does he still exist or is city guv’ment being run by the minions and developers?

  7. I do not know about Mayor Bieter, but ACHD office was closed for a couple of days, and it made no difference in our quality of life.
    I wish all ACHD trucks and roadwork disappeared for a couple of days!

  8. Just Guessing

    Mayor Bieter must be in a rehab getting treatment for F-35 withdrawal symptoms.

  9. Why hasn’t the corporate media reported that every BIG terrorist event or school mass shooting was a scheduled government “Drill”?

    9/11 was scheduled well in advance to be a “terrorism preparedness drill” where planes flew into the Twin Towers, but somehow it became the “real” thing. Sandy Hook, as well as all the other big school mass shootings, were supposed to be “active shooter drills”, but somehow the corporate media never “discovered” that little fact.

    Why does the corporate media report every little crime by the poor people, but ignore the millionaire/billionaire crimes?

    Why does the corporate media rehash the same old formula of crime, fires, airplane crashes, sports and weather, while the office of the USA President has acquired the right to strip Americans of the citizenship, possessions, or kill them with no due process?
    Our media is now in the hands of 5 corporations and our elections are completely fraudulent, but no mention of that at all.
    Why has the corporate media been hyping the Russion Meddling story for nearly 2 years with no evidence of meddling, while America is always meddling in foreign elections?
    Our corporate media is a fraud, our politicians and bankers are criminals, and our Global Empire is destroying the planet. Welcome 1984/Brave New World, American style.

  10. Thanks for that insight, Boris…er, Bob.

  11. False Flag Concept: Bob, you give far too much credit to the false flag concept. You are seeing incompetence not conspiracy. Consistent persistent conspiracy is very very difficult to pull off. It’s obvious leadership incompetence in the recent Florida school event. Violent armed crazy kid was served up on silver platter SEVERAL TIMES and they somehow missed it. A competent media would straighten up this problem.

    Today’s Media: The most incompetent of all is the American Public for not only tolerating the useless media; we are paying more than ever to consume it. Just remember Bob, giving accurate useful news is not the goal, the goal is to have you exposed to the advertisements. Twenty something hottie reporter in yoga pants? Who cares the content. Any amount of inexpensive inaccurate bullcrap to suck you in so you will also see the ads is the objective. All media has become a trashy tabloid. The most important thing happening in any newsroom is the expensive commercial for pills or used cars or HVAC services etc.

  12. Rab & Wrong, there’s actually this whole field of scientific study called Political Science. The PS folks actually study people, groups, and events from physical records and create theories which are then tested. Papers are written and published for review.

    Political Scientists say the Corporate Media is not incompetently blundering about in a desperate bid to make advertising dollars. CM is waging a propaganda war against the American Citizens that is being enabled and funded by the richest few among us. (Oligarchs)

    The claim that conspiracies are difficult to pull off is nonsense. We are surrounded by conspiracies. It is easy to pull off when you own the media outlets. Despite the fact that people can easily find that most conspiracies are actually true on the internet, the vast majority of folks are too busy trapped in the Consumer Utopia work/spend paradiagm to do more than glance at a TV (fake) Newscast once in a while.

  13. Matrix, Show us some of these papers you speak of. Links to them on Google Scholar or similar public access site please.

    Simple conspiracy such as Gulf of Tonkin is easy to do, but not the complicated repeated spanning-decades murderous events Bob’s talking about.

    We agree. I call the media ‘incompetent’ because in general they have strayed so far from their ethical/moral role as guardians of truth justice and the American way. I agree there is indeed a conspiracy directing MSM today. It’s why this blog exists. Similar agendas are directing our education system and are deeply rooted in government employee ranks. The recent hijacking of our health care insurance is clear evidence. Many claim it is the subversive communist agenda. Bernie Sanders probably would have beat Trump. That’s how close we are to tipping over.

    However, I do not accept the excuses you make for the average American not paying attention. They are not without education. They are not working 18 hours a day 7 days a week. Even the homeless have an iPhone. Average Americans live better than any group of people in the history of the world. We/They are suffering from nothing more than apathy. Too comfortable perhaps? The greatest source of stress for Americans today is what is called Status Anxiety (Alain de Botton). Status anxiety is a companion of our substantial liberty. The liberties enjoyed by the common man today are novel in the history of humanity. Many deal with this anxiety by allowing others to choose their path in a return to the old ways (Bernie voters). Look what the Russian commoners did with their new liberties over the past 30 years. Some excelled but many long for the days when they didn’t have the think so much and ate rat soup.

    Rab & Wrong,

    Bob is totally correct. I actually investigate the sensational narratives spun by ‘Govt/Media and it’s pretty easy to discern just how big of lies they tell. You don’t have to be some hot shot academician to understand what’s going on. You just have to clear your mind of the stupid ideological dogmas and normalcy biases that you carry and open your eyes and listen to the data and facts and anti-facts and it gets pretty easy to see.

    Now, Wrong actually picked up on the fact that the Cruz shooter kid was a clear and present danger. It would take a massive effort to “miss” that kid. There were countless warnings but the FBI chose not to address it. And the Snead family totally lied when they said they didn’t know Cruz had a second key to the gun safe. Every key lock safe comes with TWO keys. Mr. Snead doesn’t know that? He’s ex-Army signals intel with a psychology background. Something smells and it’s spelled MK Ultra.

    And the cops were told to stand down, along with the 20 minute camera recording delay is a tell as well. Someone wanted a bloodbath at that school, and they found a patsy/shooter. All of this I just told you is in MSM papers and posts. And Bob is correct that drills were conducted on that day at the school. And, improper procedures were witnessed in real time by experts who watched the event on TV, regarding EMTs and trauma facilities.

    Open eyes and jettison your “isms” and wake up.

  15. Here you go “wrong”. Probably the most famous deconstruction of the corporate media…

    Noam Chomsky’s, What Makes the Mainstream Media Mainstream. https://chomsky.info/199710__/

    This paper brilliantly lays out exactly how nearly every media outlet in the entire country can brainwash the population in perfect lockstep. Once you read of few of Chomsky’s papers you realize that nearly everything you thought you knew about events in America is just dead wrong. You know as “fact” what the Oligarchs want you to think.

  16. That’s not a peer reviewed research paper. That’s just bloviating. Do you even know what a research paper is Bob? Secondly, I agree with you and the bloviator about the media conspiracy.

    I do not agree with your wildass accusations that tens of thousands of Americans spanning many decades have conspired to murder Americans in events such as 9/11 and school shootings (as you said in first comment). It has happened in several commie regimes, the Nazis, and it could happen here if we continue to drift left. It’s about the happen in South Africa. It’s actually fairly common throughout the history of civilization. Just don’t accept it has happened here yet, and kept so quiet.

    ***** BTW: Editor, KBOI2 has made a small mention in a very week report of the planned laser target training in Boise. But they said nothing about radars and lasers. They found a guy wearing Air Force pilot glasses to say he’s not concerned.

  17. “Wrong”, two words: Operation Northwoods.

    The planned, but never executed, 1962 Operation Northwoods plot by the U.S. Department of Defense for a war with Cuba involved scenarios such as fabricating the hijacking or shooting down of passenger and military planes, sinking a U.S. ship in the vicinity of Cuba, burning crops, sinking a boat filled with Cuban refugees, attacks by alleged Cuban infiltrators inside the United States, and harassment of U.S. aircraft and shipping and the destruction of aerial drones by aircraft disguised as Cuban MiGs.

    These actions would be blamed on Cuba, and would be a pretext for an invasion of Cuba and the overthrow of Fidel Castro’s communist government.

    It was authored by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but then rejected by President John F. Kennedy.

    The surprise discovery of the documents relating to Operation Northwoods was a result of the comprehensive search for records related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy by the Assassination Records Review Board in the mid-1990s.

    Information about Operation Northwoods was later publicized by James Bamford.

    Hmmm… Sounds kind of 9/11ish to me.

    Also, the “Bloviator”, as you call Noam Chomsky…

    “…an American linguist, cognitive scientist, historian, social critic, and political activist. Sometimes described as “the father of modern linguistics,” Chomsky is also one of the founders of the field of cognitive science. He is the author of over 100 books on topics such as linguistics, war, politics, and mass media. Ideologically, he aligns with anarcho-syndicalism and libertarian socialism. He holds a joint appointment as Institute Professor Emeritus at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and laureate professor at the University of Arizona.[22][23]” Wikipedia

    EDITOR NOTE–How about moving on to current posts guys.

  18. Bob, Still nothing but opinions. Yes a bloviator, and on the fringe of everything important that ever happened at that.

    Apathy is 13.6% Meridian School District voter turnout. The media feeding us crap is because we will eat it. Why make a greater effort?
