November 4: U.S. Department of Defense will carry out a blackout drill while Antifa thugs will protest nationwide for their marked ‘day of rage’ against President Trump…sounds like an ‘interesting’ day.
Elements of the US Department of Defense (DOD) will conduct a “communications interoperability” training exercise November 4-6, once again simulating a “very bad day” scenario. Amateur Radio and MARS organizations will take part.
“This exercise will begin with a national massive coronal mass ejection event which will impact the national power grid as well as all forms of traditional communication, including landline telephone, cellphone, satellite, and Internet connectivity,” Army MARS Program Manager Paul English, WD8DBY, explained in an announcement.
During the exercise, a designated DOD Headquarters entity will request county-by-county status reports for the 3,143 US counties and county equivalents, in order to gain situational awareness and to determine the extent of impact of the scenario. Army and Air Force MARS organizations will work in conjunction with the Amateur Radio community, primarily on the 60-meter interoperability channels as well as on HF NVIS frequencies and local VHF and UHF, non-Internet linked Amateur Radio repeaters.
Below is the report on the drill from The National Association for Amateur Radio (ARRL):
… ON NOVEMBER 4, 2017:
We will gather in the streets and public squares of cities and towns across this country, at first many thousands declaring that this whole regime is illegitimate and that we will not stop until our single demand is met: This Nightmare Must End: the Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
Our protest must grow day after day and night after night—thousands becoming hundreds of thousands, and then millions—determined to act to put a stop to the grave danger that the Trump/Pence Regime poses to the world by demanding that this whole regime be removed from power…

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones — the NFL’s most prominent and visible team owner — is making a frank, if obvious, admission: The protests are negatively impacting the league’s bottom line.
In comments reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Jones addressed the issue for the first time since the owners meeting in New York on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week.
“There is no question the league is suffering negative effects from these protests,” Jones said.
NFL ratings across the board were down 7.5 percent from 2016 through Week 6, according to ESPN. The league has zeroed in on the protests against racial and social injustice as a primary cause for the ratings drop.

PHOTOS! ST. LOUIS: 2ND NIGHT VIOLENT PROTEST IN DELMAR LOOP, BROKEN WINDOWS, OBJECTS THROWN AT COPS ( VIDEO )
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Protests turned violent for the second night on Saturday after the acquittal of a white former St. Louis police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man, as a small group of demonstrators refused to disperse, breaking windows and throwing objects at police, who moved in with armored vehicles and in riot gear.
The confrontation took place in the Delmar Loop of the St. Louis suburb of University City — known for concert venues, restaurants, shops and bars and including the famous Blueberry Hill where rock legend Chuck Berry played for many years. The area had been the scene of a peaceful march earlier in the evening that ended with organizers calling for people to leave and reconvene Sunday afternoon.
But a small group of protesters refused to go. Hundreds of police in riot gear eventually moved in and ordered them to disperse, saying the protest was unlawful. The demonstrators retreated down a street, breaking windows and throwing objects at police.
Some protesters were seen in handcuffs but the number of arrests was not immediately known.
The sudden eruption of violence had followed a day of peaceful demonstrations at suburban shopping malls and during the march in University City.
Demonstrators shouted slogans such as “black lives matter” and “it is our duty to fight for our freedom” as they marched through West County Center mall in the city of Des Peres, west of St. Louis, to decry the judge’s verdict Friday clearing ex-officer Jason Stockley of first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting of Anthony Lamar Smith. A group also demonstrated at Chesterfield Mall in the suburbs and at a regional food festival.
ST. LOUIS PROTEST: MACY’S CLOSE THEIR DOORS, MALL SHUT DOWN, U2 AND ED SHEERAN CONCERTS CANCELLED – VIDEO/ PHOTOS
Macy’s and other stores at West County Mall, St. Louis close their doors as 300 BLM protesters march inside ( why protest inside a private property? ). Police responded by increasing its presence as West County Mall temporarily shutdown but reopened later.
Fox News Correspondent Griff Jenkins reported, “Protesters take to a local mall chanting ‘No Justice, No Profits’”
Ed Sheeran and U2 have both cancelled their St Louis concerts as police may not be able to protect the audience from angry left-wing protesters.
The protest is about the acquittal of white cop Jason Stockley who was cleared of murdering black drug dealer Anthony Smith in 2011 on Friday after years of anticipation.
Many believe Stockley planted a gun in Smith’s car after he shot him six times following a high-speed car chase. The weapon had none of the dead man’s DNA on it but Stockey’s fingerprints were picked up.
