JADE HELM 15: An Unlawful Military Exercise On U.S. Soil With Grave Implications
SOTN Editor’s Note:
Jade Helm 15 — An unprecedented and unlawful military exercise on U.S. soil occurring in those states that are most affected by out-of-control illegal immigration. There is no other border in the G20 world that is as porous as the southwest American border. Not only is it porous, the U.S. Federal Government has actively encouraged illegal aliens from Central and South America to enter through what is practically now an open border.
Why has the government deliberately failed to enforce immigration law? Even to the point where the Obama Administration has taken to political prosecutions — Texas and Arizona — of those states that are vociferous about the flagrant lack of border security and immigration law enforcement.
Is Jade Helm 15 a means of intimidating these and contiguous states to go along with the new lawless regime? What are the many other serious implications of this unparalleled deployment of American troops on U.S. soil?
The following article is an important one for every American citizen to deeply contemplate. Perhaps it can be used as a means to prevent the illicit Jade Helm exercise from taking place anywhere in 50 states.
Jade Helm: 10 Deeper Implications
Operation Jade Helm 15
is coming to a state near you! People all over America are wondering what the true purpose of Jade Helm is, whether it is linked to coming emergencies or catastrophes, and whether it is being used to condition the public to accept military intrusion in their lives (or a possible marital law scenario). The US military and mainstream media are downplaying its significance, yet a closer examination reveals there is valid cause for concern.
Jade Helm 15 is a military exercise slated to occur from July 15, 2015 until September 15, 2015. It was initially scheduled for 7 states (California, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Texas), but now includes 3 more states (Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida). For the first time ever, it will feature American soldiers actively practicing on American soil and American streets – especially on streets, since this operation focuses on urban warfare. These won’t be just any old American soldiers, but the cream of the crop, composed of Green Beret, Navy Seal and other elite forces. According to the US Military, their mission will be to operate undetected amongst the American civilian population, wearing civilian clothes and driving civilian vehicles, and practice UW (Unconventional Warfare) techniques in terrain resembling the Middle East so as to better fight enemies over there. At least, that is the cover story.
Here is a list of 10 deeper implications and causes for concern with Operation Jade Helm 15:
Jade Helm Implication #1: Violation of Principle of Posse Comitatus
The Posse Comitatus Act was passed in 1878, and it forbade the US military from being deployed domestically on American soil. The purpose of Posse Comitatus was to prevent a tyrant from seizing power and directing the nation’s standing armies against its own people. This kind of thing has happened throughout history; military generals like Julius Caesar and Pompey overtook the Roman Republic by marching upon the city of Rome with their armies. Posse Comitatus is very important plank in a free society, because it is another way to prevent centralization of power and keep the different functions and powers of Government as separate as possible.
Jade Helm appears to be a serious violation of the principle of Posse Comitatus. Not only are the military planning to actively exercise on American soil, but also they are planning to do it among the civilian population, within populated areas. However before Jade Helm arose we already had the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act, passed in 2006, which in many ways gutted Posse Comitatus. As Eric Alterman and George Zornick write:
“Before John Warner passed, the president could deploy troops inside the United States only if he invoked the Insurrection Act of 1807, which allows for deployment only “to suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy.” The new law expands the list to include “natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition”—and such a “condition” is not defined or limited.”
Jade Helm looks like another step in the direction of domestic military deployment – a nail in the coffin for a free republic.
Jade Helm Implication #2: Declaring Certain States Hostile
The supposed basis of Jade Helm is that the US military needs to practice in the same kind of terrain as its Middle Eastern enemies. Since the Middle East is full of different countries whose attitudes towards the US range from hostile to neutral to friendly, the US military has designated certain US states as hostile, to mimic these Middle Eastern countries. When you overlay a Middle Eastern map over the southwest USA, Texas is roughly comparable to Iran, Utah is roughly comparable to Syria and the “insurgent pocket” of California is roughly comparable to Palestine. Thus these 3 areas have been declared hostile for the purposes of Jade Helm.
From a civilian perspective, declaring certain states hostile is a real cause for concern. Texas has a culture of fierce independence and resistance to federal control. Is it just a coincidence that Texas is 1 of the 2 states fully designated as “hostile” in Jade Helm? Is it just a coincidence that Texas just passed legislation to build its own gold bullion depository in order to repatriate $1 billion worth of gold currently stored by the Federal Reserve in New York? Is it just a coincidence that Texas is the state labeled as “hostile” when it’s home to a massive number of gun owners, patriots, secessionists and liberty lovers who would fight the Federal Government to the death?
Jade Helm Implication #3: More War
Even if you take everything the US Military is saying at face value – a big jump I know – and even if you believe that the declaration of certain states as “hostile” is completely innocuous, standard and has no deeper meaning, what are the implications for war? The US has already raised the ire of almost the entire world by its constant invasions, bombings, incursions, drone attacks and assassinations in the Middle East. It has made countless enemies since 9/11 by attempting to conquer that entire region. It has murdered millions of Middle Easteners and has stolen tons of oil and other natural resources from the land. But apparently this is not enough. Now, the NWO elite want to continue using the US military, which is essentially their private army of killers and assassins, to further obliterate Syria and Iran to dominate the entire region – with an eye to encircling Russia and China. Do we really want to ignore or condone the US military training to accomplish its mission of unbridled aggression?
Jade Helm Implication #4: Martial Law or Military Conditioning
The widespread exposure of Jade Helm has led many to predict that it will lead to martial law. Whether this is an accurate prediction or fear-based prophesizing remains to be seen, however one thing is for sure: even if the exercise does not produce martial law, it is definitely conditioning the American public to accept and become accustomed to an increased police/military presence in their lives. Jade Helm is the elite sending a message to the general US population: get used to living in fear. Get used to living in a world where it is normal for the military to patrol among your ranks, disguised or out in the open. Get used to being watched closely. Get used to the sight and sound of military being deployed in your town. Welcome to New World Order America.
Jade Helm Implication #5: The Merging of Military and Police
Jade Helm is another example of a disturbing trend: the merging of the military and police into a single force that can be deployed anywhere, abroad or domestically, against anyone. This force then becomes, essentially, the private army of the elite that can be use against any group that threatens their power structure. For some time now, both in the US and other nations, we have witnessed the growing militarization of the police; in the US this has been aided by programs like 1033, where surplus military equipment is deliberately being funneled to local police forces. The merging of military and police is a big danger to any democracy, due to the gross centralization of power it entails.
Jade Helm Implication #6: US Military Targeting US Citizens
Whenever you dream about, talk about or practice an activity, your brain is learning how do it by making neuron patterns. The US military practicing to target its own citizens is anything but benign and harmless. This literally means that US soldiers are getting accustomed to seeing their own countrymen as the enemy. Jade Helm is not only about conditioning the public to accept an increasingly militarized society, but it’s also about conditioning the future enforcers of the New World Order – soldiers from the US and other countries – to view anyone they’re told to view as the enemy, to shoot upon command without asking questions or challenging orders. Jade Helm is literally and unabashedly an exercise where US soldiers are practicing how to blend in with normal Americans and operate undetected among them. Can you see how inherently dangerous this is? Can you see how such an ability could so easily be used against the American people?
Jade Helm Implication #7: There’s Always an Enemy
From a global perspective, the US military is completely and utterly out of control. Sorry to burst your bubble if you’re an active member or a veteran, but the US military has never been about respect or honor. There’s nothing respectable about mass murder and there’s nothing honorable about constantly invading other sovereign nations because your corporate masters don’t like their leaders – as has been happening in South America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and all over the world for over a century. When has the US military ever being used for legitimate defense? Never. It’s always been attack, attack, attack – including both World Wars and the false flag incidents (Lusitania and Pearl Harbor) engineered to get America into those bloody wars.
The problem here is the military mindset – the mindset that divides the world up into friendly and hostile, and that is always training to defend itself and attack “the enemy”, even though that enemy is frequently imaginary. Just look at how many enemies our leaders have given us, from the Nazis to the Commies to the Islamic terrorists, when in all cases those enemies were created and funded by the US military-industrial complex and the NWO elite. Jade Helm is a continuation of the demented and delusional mindset that seeks to find an enemy to fight in any situation.
Jade Helm Implication #8: Unbridled Movement of Military Vehicles
Citizen journalists have caught copious video footage of military vehicle movements around America in the last few months. Is it just a coincidence that some of this is happening in Jade Helm states, such as California, Nevada andTexas?
Jade Helm Implication #9: Connection to Closed Walmarts
The mystery of the abrupt closings of 5 Walmarts in Jade Helm states has not been solved, but many have theorized that it is connected to Jade Helm. Is Walmart, which is already enmeshed with the Federal Government and DHS, linking itself to underground tunnels? Is Walmart setting itself up to become a military command center? If not, then why is military equipment being parked in Walmart parking lots all over America?
Jade Helm Implication #10: Background and Context
No doubt, some of the speculation surrounding Jade Helm is over-the-top “fear porn”. However, even though some people love to jump to conjuring up doomsday scenarios, there is an undeniably valid cause for concern about the existence of an operation like Jade Helm. Think of the background and context in which it is occurring – including but not limited to such events as:
– incidences in the last 3-4 years on American streets of martial law (Boston Marathon) or heavy-handed military-police response (Ferguson, Baltimore);
– Obama signing the NDAA into law, which allows the US Government to indefinitely detain US citizens without charge or trial, in gross violation of the 4th Amendment;
– Obama announcing that “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded”;
– the invention of terrorism as the abstract bogeyman after 9/11, and the wholesale destruction of rights, liberties and privacy that has ensued in many nations across the globe since then;
– the expansion of the definition of terrorism to domestic terrorism, and the subsequent branding of ordinary Americans as extremists or domestic terrorists (e.g. the Ohio National Guard portraying gun rights supporters as domestic terrorists during a drill, the police chief in Concord, New Hampshire wanting to use a tank against occupiers and libertarians, marines in Arizona practicing to subdue citizens inside an internment camp, and American protesters being referred to as “enemy forces” and “adversaries” in National Guard documents);
– the rumors of Obama firing generals and other top military officials based onwhether they would fire on American citizens (e.g. testimony of former Navy Seal Ben Smith, who claimed top brass in the military were being asked if they would be comfortable disarming US citizens);
– the US military’s own documents showing it is preparing to intervene and deploy domestically against its own citizens, whom it swore to serve and protect (e.g. the military document entitled Internment and Resettlement Operations);
– the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) purchase of 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition when the agency does not fight any wars abroad, meaning the ammunition must be used domestically;
– the testimony of various military officers, active and retired, who have revealed that the DHS is attempting to build a domestic army (e.g. thisMarine Colonel).
Use Jade Helm as a Wake-Up Call
Hopefully a critical mass of awakened Americans can use Jade Helm as a wake-up call. The deeper implications reveal a great cause for concern. As always, the people have the power. If enough people take interest and oppose this operation, it may have to cancelled, or its effect will at least be nullified.
