This website reports that the National Guard is in Louisiana, and that roadblocks are going up...

Report: Parts of Louisiana Militarized; Road Blocks, ID Requirements

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.

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.

Can someone in Louisiana tell me if these reports are true? Because it sounds pretty darn scary.

I live on the Southeastern coast, so I have more than a passing interest in this.

The National Guard is always in Louisiana . Every state has one . As for " heavy combat equipment " , that would be hard to hide and I haven't heard anyone else talking about it . My son goes down to that area a couple of times a month . He would have mentioned it to me .

Hmmmm. Lessee....massive oil spill, oil in Barataria Bay, the National Guard involved in the clean up.

Naw, it couldn't be that. It's GOT to be something more sinister!

the Natl guard was stationed along the coast near Holly Beach too. We waved to them when we went down there.
