IT is surely not lost on the Republican Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, that it is best to pay attention to the concerns of the citizens who elected him. Such a calculus should be a no-brainer for any astute politician, regardless of party affiliation.
BE that as it may, under said (practical) rubric, he ordered Texas’s military to ‘monitor’ the Feds, vis-a-vis the increasingly suspect JADE HELM 15 theater of operations within Texas. We will get to that in a bit…
BEAR in mind, this was after the shuck-and-jive show from the Fed’s mouthpiece, US Retired Non-Commissioned Special Forces Officer Tom Mead . His mission was to ‘calm down’ an increasingly alarmed public…oh yeah, the tens of thousands of ‘crazies’…’conspiracy and tin-foil hatters’ too! However, an order of this magnitude wouldn’t be given, if Texas’s chief executive didn’t see a ‘there there’, regardless of political calculi.
In the question and answer portion of the presentation, Mead further explains to board members how Jade Helm, a new exercise he describes as also being developed by US Special Operations General Charles T. Cleveland, will now be conducted within the United States annually.
Further, Mead points out that the FBI and DEA will be involved in “questioning” individuals. It is unclear whether the individuals being interrogated are part of the exercise, or what they will be questioned about. “They will actually do some questioning for us at one of the airports in Arizona.” A military or civilian airport? He doesn’t elaborate.
Mead also provides a conflicted response when asked by the county officials if only US military and law enforcement personnel will be involved in the exercise. “Do you use any personnel from NATO, the UN or DHS?” one board member asks (at 12:56 in the above video). “Currently for Jade Helm it is US only. We, ah, that has been one of the discussions that, uhm, I’m not sure if it has occurred yet.” (blogger’s note: a W T F rendering…)
A sober observer might conclude (as a portion of the public already has) that Jade Helm is likely a means to acclimate America for eventual martial law. Since September 11, 2001 US citizens have experienced a steady erosion of their civil liberties associated with the dubious rationale of the “war on terror.” The increased militarization of law enforcement and now operations like Jade Helm being carried out on domestic soil further indicate how the Posse Comitatus Act, introduced in 1878 and intended to prevent the federal government from using the military for domestic law enforcement, is being steadily eviscerated, though it is important to note that as recently as 2002 the US Congress reaffirmed the significance of the law.
Even the Rand Corporation has suggested that the US military has no clear criteria concerning when and how Posse Comitatus applies to exercises such as Jade Helm. “[I]t is critical,” Rand researchers observe in one study, “that the Army develop doctrine, leadership, and training programs that can provide clear and specific guidance on when and how the Posse Comitatus Act—as well as any other laws that proscribe Army activities in the domestic arena—applies and when it does not…..
ADDITIONAL JADE HELM 15 ‘issues’ were amassed at a previous commentary, and they can be found here.
NOT only that, its planners, including the above referenced mouthpiece, will NOT answer a straight up question re the inclusion of foreign troops – “Currently for Jade Helm it is US only. We, ah, that has been one of the discussions that, uhm, I’m not sure if it has occurred yet.” Lying bastard. Okey dokey too.
TELLINGLY, this particular lie, cum evasion, underlies the core danger. Intrinsically, many alarm bells rang as to the absolute fact that Chinese, Russian and a smattering of E European troops have been training on U.S. soil! Now, anyone who understands what this means also knows that the LAST thing a patriotic POTUS would want is communist troops running loose in the U.S., let alone learning tactics from U.S. command. Ya think?
CONCOMITANTLY, training mock ups (which involved aforementioned foreign forces) were NOT designed along the contours of environments required to battle Mid East jihadists or other known enemies. To the contrary. They are facsimiles of American cities with all the trappings of ‘any city USA’, down to the English street signs! Why?
The U.S. Army has constructed a 300 acre city in Virginia, complete with subways and signs in English, to practice drills for “problems we may not know we have yet,” according to the UK Telegraph.
The site cost $96 million to build and only 2 years to complete, and replicates the typical American city, with signage that replicates those in Washington D.C. and the same architecture seen across the nation.
“This is the place where we can be creative, where we can come up with solutions for problems that we don’t even know we have yet….This is where we’ll look at solutions for the future–material solutions and non-material solutions…anything from how you’re going to operate in a subterranean environment to how you dismount a Humvee to avoid an IED strike,” according to Colonel John P. Petkosek.
The troubling part of this mock city is that a recently leaked Army manual contained plans for the military to carry out “Civil Disturbance Operations” where American soldiers would be deployed across the nation to quell civil uprising, even firing on and killing American citizens if the need arose…..read here.
BACK to Texas’s foresight and watchful eyes….
The Lone Star State’s Republican governor, Greg Abbott, is answering citizens’ concerns over Operation Jade Helm 15, a lengthy military campaign to train U.S. troops in an urban setting, with a call to arms of his own: he’s ordered members of the Texas military to monitor the special-ops exercises.
Jade Helm, as WND has previously reported, kicks off in July in seven states, including Texas, Utah, California and Colorado. The two-month campaign involves special forces with all four branches of the U.S. military working with local law enforcement, as well as with FBI and DEA officials, to respond to mock hostilities in community settings. The campaign has launched a swell of opposition from social-media posters, who say the mission is little more than an attempt for the federal government to pave the way to declare martial law.
Abbott, in a letter to Maj. Gen. Gerald Betty of the Texas State Guard, said his order to monitor the feds was “to address concerns of Texas citizens,” SFGate.com said.
He wrote: “During the training operation, it is important Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property right[s] and civil liberties will not be infringed. I am directing the Texas State Guard to monitor Operation Jade Helm 15.”
The State Guard is made up of volunteer reservists who act at the pleasure of the governor, mostly in times of catastrophe…more here.
CONCLUSIVELY, regardless of anything else, Obama Inc., in collusion with foreign leaders – most especially Chinese – are prepping for the eventuality (the timing is fluid, but the prep has to take place) of martial law.
Martial Law Prep One:
ADDITIONALLY, why are community police forces ‘armed to the teeth’, like military forces’, preparing to lay siege as if in battle formations? Hint: the reasons have zero to do with the ‘war on terror’!
Martial Law Prep Two:
MOREOVER, DHS, the umbrella where martial law is housed, is now America’s ‘standing army‘, its forward-arm. Not only that, but do recall DHS’s MASSIVE, inexplicable stockpiling of ammo, unprecedented in U.S. shopping sprees, just a short while ago. For what? Now it’s coming full circle…the ubiquitous swirling Black Hawks too.
Martial Law Prep Three:
FINALLY, what about the purged generals and the training of red-like foreign troops on U. S. soil? But never mind.
PONDER what this means: Americans are (legally) well armed, in comparison to any other nation. As such, the Second Amendment is sacrosanct. Thankfully, the Founders understood that a day would come when citizens might be required to stand up against an out of control leadership. Yes, that time has arrived. Absolutely, an armed citizenry remains the only bulwark against an increasingly totalitarian grasp.
WITHOUT a scintilla of a doubt, HUSSEIN Obama’s domestic (and foreign) upheavals are not meant to protect Americans, and JADE HELM 15 is the other end of the same crisis point. Its preparation is mandatory (with yrly exercises planned for more of the same) for an eventual totalitarian grab, one which requires not only U.S. agencies but foreign ‘assistance’ too.
INDEED, gun control is on the way, in order to implement martial law. It is not if, but when.
“President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation,” Bedard wrote Feb. 27, 2015. “Targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.”
We left phone messages and sent emails several times to Bedard and did not hear back. Our focus is whether Obama is using executive action to impose gun control through a bullet ban…
CONSPIRACY-TALK ? Well, if it looks like a totalitarian duck….
