This country is being mismanaged by the career politicians and authorities, yet they seem to be surprised when things begin to come apart at the seams.
According to last August’s CNN poll, an all-time high of 87% of Americans simply do not trust their own government nor regard the mainstream media as truthful or credible.
The recent riots in Baltimore are just the most recent result of decades of abusive police tactics carried out against blacks and other disadvantaged populations. But they’re likely not to be the last, and disadvantaged people are only the beginning. Mass incarceration is such a generalized phenomenon in America, once the fissures begin to open, urban unrest is likely to happen anywhere in America. Eventually, the whole country could blow up like a super-volcano.
The government knows this and is taking steps to maintain repressive control.
From July 15 to September 15, a Special Operations exercise called “Jade Helm 15” is scheduled to be carried out by the US Army’s Special Operations Command in 10 states in the southwest, plus Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida. The Army says the operation is designed to train 1,200 special forces personnel including the Green Berets, Air Force and Marine Special Ops Commands, Navy SEALS, Marine Expeditionary Units, and the 82nd Airborne Division in ‘Mastering the Human Domain’: the use of the military to engender trust in order to control “the totality of the physical, cultural, and social environments that influence human behavior.” In other words, Jade Helm is a dry run exercise at the roll-out of martial law and asymmetric warfare against Americans.
The government knows that invading and conquering a country is a lot easier than maintaining order under its rule. Jade Helm appears to be a practiced study in the modern domination of culture. It is a dry run at using one’s soldiers as counselors and spies to keep the population of a territory subservient.
It appears that infiltration exercises will be incorporated in the operation. According to a Houston Chronicle report, soldiers will attempt to blend in with the local population in an effort to test the effectiveness of infiltration techniques.
Residents will be encouraged to report suspicious activity during the exercise. “They’re going to set up cells of people and test how well they’re able to move around without getting too noticed in the community,” says Roy Boyd, chief deputy with the Victoria County sheriff’s office. “They’re testing their abilities to basically blend in with the local environment and not stand out and blow their cover.”
Jade Helm is a massive rehearsal not only for the implementation of martial law over the general population, but for snatch-and-grab extractions of key resistance figures from the independent media as well as uncooperative political figures.
On Tuesday Governor Greg Abbott of Texas says he ordered the Texas National Guard to monitor Jade Helm 15 “to safeguard Texans’ constitutional rights, private property & civil liberties,” but this provides scant reassurance and is likely part of Abbott’s own cover story.
Twenty-three Marines are said to be deployed in the Big Bend area. Drones and stealth helicopters have already been observed here.
In Midland TX, the number one Walmart in America (based on per capita spending) has been suddenly closed without warning, its employees fired, and the store is now a hotbed of reconstruction and military activity, and the site is crawling with military and DHS personnel and vehicles. According to the official cover story, the store had to be closed because of “plumbing issues.” But since when does the military service Walmart’s plumbing?
The Midland location is one of five stores Walmart said it closed in California, Texas, Oklahoma, and Florida because of persistent “plumbing issues,” which could take as long as six months to fix. These are all states which have a role to play in the Jade Helm exercise, and the Walmarts are rumored to being prepared as command centers. There are also persistent rumors of Walmart installing facial recognition software in its operations because 85% of Americans are said to patronize the retailer over some period of time.
So what is going on? No one outside of government really knows, but conspiracy theories abound. The “exercise” cover story seems pretty thin, but the gullible American public has fallen for much less. I will remind you that Dick Cheney was in charge of a NORAD “military exercise” when 9-11 was permitted to happen. And most Americans have been content to swallow the government’s official line.
The chances are just as great that Jade Helm is itself a major move of oppression against Americans as they are that Jade Helm will ultimately prove to be just a means of conditioning the public to accept a repressive domestic military presence. This is the real tragedy of the United States national and state governments today. Their intentions are simply not trustworthy.
