|Jade helm 15 exercise to be held in the marked States.|
If you read Google News or the Drudge Report, you have most likely heard the term Jade Helm 15. What does the Federal government claim it is and what do the conspiracy theorists believe it really is? Never mind, read on and I’ll tell you what I think it is.
According to retired NCO Special Forces officer Tom Mead, “It is a Special Operations Command, General Joseph L. Votel-sponsored exercise to improve Special Operations forces’ ability to conduct unconventional warfare as part of the national security.”
It will be taking place from July to September across seven states and especially Texas. “Texas is the main bulk of the activity. We are spread from east to west, north to south, throughout the state of Texas,” says Mead.
The conspiracy crowd sees this exercise a number of different ways and none of them are for the actual good of the people. First there is the old 1878 Posse Comitatus Act which was intended to prevent the federal government from using the military for domestic law enforcement. They see this as the beginning of the end. They also believe the closing of the manyWal-mart stores is in preparation to facilitate the staging of the Homeland Security.
The exercise is not being taken lightly by Governor Gregg Abbott. On April 30th, he penned a letter asking the Texas State Guard to keep an eye on the operation. “During the training operation, it is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed," Abbott wrote toMaj. Gen. Gerald Betty, saying he expects "regular updates on the progress and safety of the Operation."
So, is it a simple exercise to prepare our joint military commands to deal with anarchy and ISIS infiltration, or Big Brother readying boxcars with shackles to do a hostile takeover of America’s citizens? After all, we are seeing rioting in numerous American cities and the police are under constant attack. For the good of the people, we are seeing our personal freedoms violated further each year, so what is it really?
Let me explain what we airmen heard way back in 1972, while stationed in Southeast Asia. “The next war will be fought in the desert.” What? When I looked around at the lush banana trees and jungle-covered mountains I honestly thought this had to be crazy. Why would any war be fought in the desert? There’s nothing there but sand.
Less than twenty years later we were in Operation Desert Storm. I never forgot that prediction and this led me to believe most of the conflicts we see around the word are planned far in advance. It is common knowledge that the US Government has contingency plans for everything, from invading Cuba to alien invasion. They have worked out a first response for every possible conflict and if and when it comes into range, they pull the folder and revise it.
To me, Jade Helm 15 is in preparation for martial law, which our government believes will happen. I do believe they think it can happen inside of 5 to 10 years though. They are preparing our military communication framework against an electromagnetic pulse by reopening Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado. This is not speculation.
I think it is a safe assumption that anarchy is indeed coming to the U. S. of A. but who knows when? Anarchy? What? What exactly is anarchy anyway? Anarchy simply defined is when law officials lose the ability to restore law and order. We saw it happen briefly in Ferguson, Missouri and slightly in Baltimore, Maryland, but what if it was happening in 200 cities across the country? How about 500 or 1000 cities simultaneously?
Our city has a daytime population in excess of 120,000 people so I asked the big question to my source at BPD and this is their response as to how many cops we normally patrol and what if the big one came:
“Between 10 and 15 answering calls, putting on the street and how long to hold out depends on the situation. To answer your (other) question we could hold out for weeks or become overwhelmed almost immediately. The catchy phrase in disaster training and response is “How big is big?” One thing you can say is that we do not hesitate to call for help from other law enforcement or the County or the State. Federal has to come through the state first.”
I don’t want to live in fear of anarchy and if major trouble does break out; I will hunker down until directed to otherwise. I support our police department 100% along with our military, but I’m not going to stick my head in the sand and not watch what’s going on. I think Jade helm 15 needs to be watched.
