live in Big Spring (West) Texas between Midland and Lubbock. Much
to the shock of many in our small town, in April we found out
Big Spring will be a 'Jade Helm 15' exercise location.
early May military helicopters started flying over my house here
and there for about a week. I speculated they were looking at
the terrain for training spots. Although, I guess according to
this article I'm supposed to be terrorized:
Helm Personnel Are Terrorizing Small Texas Communities: "Residents
of Big Spring, Texas are reporting the “scary” sight
of helicopters and tanks arriving
in advance of Jade Helm, a military exercise that has prompted
concerns amongst some that U.S. troops are preparing
for civil unrest in America."
have not seen any tanks. Yet. Texans scared of a few helicopters
flying over? It does happen every once in a while. About 90 miles
south of here is San Angelo where Goodfellow AFB is located and
120 miles east of here is Abeline where Dyess AFB is located.
We don't swoon over a few helicopters.
were not told about this 'event' until it was a done deal. While
I wouldn't say there was a revolt, some are upset and vocal about
it; hard to guess how many. Our idiot mayor told the local rag
newspaper military officials had negotiated contracts with local
landowners to conduct Jade Helm 15 exercises. No landowners are
being forced to have training on their property. Any training
on public land was worked out with regional authorities. A couple
of landowners were quoted in the newspaper saying they would refuse
to allow any military exercises on their land - not even for money.
Hard to say how many also took that position.
business owners here welcome Jade Helm as it's estimated to bring
in roughly $150,000 in revenues for this small town. A couple
of residents interviewed said while they support our military
they don't want them here for training. The right answer.
Internet has been raging like an inferno over this large special
ops joint exercise to be held July 15 - September 15, 2015. I've
read dozens and news items about Jade Helm. Web sites and radio
hosts whipping people into a frenzy. On April 30, 2015, Dave Hodges,
posted this: Closed
Walmarts To Be Guerilla Warfare Staging Areas in Response to Invasion
can be no doubt that the internal events at Walmart holds the
key to the end game of Jade Helm operations. Jade Helm and Walmart
are inextricably linked and the existing evidence suggests one
of two possible end game probabilities for Jade Helm.
Converted Walmart stores will be processing centers for FEMA
camp political prisoners.
"2. Some Walmarts will be used as supply and staging centers
for an internal conflict within the United States
the past four weeks, I have watched over 100 videos on Jade Helm
and Walmart. I have performed what researchers call a qualitative,
or a descriptive analysis of the available facts. In performing
this task, I have looked for patterns among the recent Walmart
closings because it is clear that the closings coincide with Jade
Helm. This constitutes Phase One of the analysis. In Phase Two,
the findings from phase one are correlated to known or strongly
suspected events connected to Jade Helm and/or other areas of
concern related to national security. Subsequently, this kind
of descriptive analysis can yield strong clues as to the true
intent of where Jade Helm is headed and what the Walmart role
consistes of in conjunction with Jade Helm."
is exactly because of that type of scare mongering which prompted
Texans to burn up the phone lines to Gov. Gregg Abbott who responded
by ordering the State Guard to monitor Jade Helm activities here
in Texas. Gov. Abbott released this statement:
is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights,
private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed.
By monitoring the operation on a continual basis, the State Guard
will facilitate communications between my office and the commanders
of the operation to ensure that adequate measures are in place
to protect Texans.” One can at least say Abbott was responsive
to his citizens.
is a difference between hysteria and being concerned and wanting
answers. This article is also typical of what's been swirling
around the Internet:
Of All ANP Jade Helm 15 Articles, Related Walmart Closings, And
Military Movement Across America
March 13, 2015 when All News PipeLine received and published the
leaked Jade Helm 15 documents, a firestorm blew throughout the
internet with Alternative Media exposing every possible connection,
theory, danger and highlighting other disturbing military training
exercises happening on US soil, many Americans have "woken up"
to the very real possibility that the US government is actively
preparing to lock down the country and declare martial law, whether
it will happen during these planned exercises from July to September,
or if these exercises are just one of the preparations for a later
we will list the chronology of ANP coverage on Jade Helm by both
Stefan Stanford, Susan Duclos and a reader submission, the strange
announcement of multiple Walmart closings, some in Jade Helm states
and the possible connection to Jade Helm, and the massive military
movement being seen across America since Jade Helm was exposed
to the public."
link above has a whole list of stories about Jade Helm; no need
to duplicate them here.
link above has lots of photos of military equipment on railroad
cars. Something we frequently see across this country
because the military moves troops and equipment all the time.
Sometimes they ship, just as you see in those pictures, equipment
slated for overseas. Those go by rail to places like Oakland,
California. The Army base there puts those vehicles on what are
called 'row-row's which are huge ships. I know
because I worked on that base and was their volunteeer 'roving
reporter' who wrote articles for the base newspaper in addition
to my job as a GS-11 Administrative Assistant; 1989. I had a great
time roaming around the base and writing articles way back then.
One of my articles was on the 'row-row's up close and boy did
I learn a lot that day.
would again encourage people to find out what martial law really
is and isn't: A
Primer on Martial Law. Dr. Edwin Vieira who wrote the Primer
series also has a book out that should be read - especially by
state legislators and governors: By
Tyranny Out of Necessity - The "Bastardy" of Martial Law.
Citizens and elected officials, including yours truly until I
read A Primer on Martial Law, are woefully uneducated about what
martial law is and isn't. I feel safe in saying so are the majority
of sheriff's, mayors, state legislators, governors and the Outlaw
Congress. I highly recommend you get a copy of Tyranny Out of
Necessity and give it to your sheriff - as a group if possible.
Numbers make an impression.
look at the closing of a few China (Wal) Mart stores. Brandon,
Florida; Livingston and Midland, Texas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Los Angeles.
in April speculation was rampant the closings were in retaliation
for workers lobbying for better wages and working conditions.
At the stores that closed, employees were given two months paid
leave for both full-time and part-time workers. They were also
given the option of transferring to another store location until
repairs were done.
me tell you what I know first hand. Here in Big Spring the China
(Wal) Mart is a mile away as the crow flies from my house. I'm
not a China (Wal) mart shopper per say. Oddly enough they have
a better organic veggie section than the main grocery store here
in town. Their deli is also the only one in town that carries
a brand of roast beef that is all natural (free range) with no
artificial hormones, preservatives or additives of any kind. I
purchase it for my West Highland Terrier. Muffin takes several
medications. She has big teeth. So, to make my life easier, I
wrap her pills in a little bit of roast beef and down her throat
it goes. My other two girls (you
can see them all here) also get a little bite 'cause if one
gets something, they all get it. Just like kids (no pun intended).
back in mid-May I walked into the store and this horrible smell
hit me; smelled like a sewer. I left. A few days later I went
back because I ran out of doggie roast beef. The smell was still
there but not so strong. I went to the back of the store to the
Deli section; it was closed; the smell was stronger. A lady was
washing down counters. I ask why was the deli department closed?
She scrunched up her nose and said same old problem: plumbing.
That is an old store that needs to be either upgraded or torn
down and rebuilt because as I found out from asking around, its
been plagued with plumbing problems for years.
of the five stores closed is in Midland, Texas, 40 miles from
my home. Because I live in a small town I have to go to Midland
for PetsMart, Flat Belly Organics, the used book store and some
others. After the deluge of articles about Jade Helm, I decided
to check out the closed China (Wal) Mart in Midland. Actually,
there are two. One of the claims is the five closed stores are
strategic in location. Really? One China (Wal) Mart in Midland
is right off Hwy 20; it is open. The closed one is off the 250
loop on the other side of town and is hardly 'strategic'.
been to that closed store four times now since May. At all different
times. Noon, 1:30, 3:00, 3:35. Circled back around after running
errands. The first time I was there four plumbing trucks from
a well known local brand were out front along with one van from
a tile company. I drove all the way around the store. No tanks,
no military. Just a few cars and pick up trucks in the parking
lot with regular looking guys bringing in lunch bags (McDonald's)
who looked like they worked in construction. The second time only
one plumbing truck was there and a few cars, trucks and a security
guard who didn't need any more McDonald's. The third and fourth
time I drove around the store no one was there; everything was
it be unusual to see a few military vehicles parked on their lot?
No. Military convoys do pull off the road to get food and gas.
Right next to the China (Wal) Mart I described above are three
"fast food" joints making an easy walk to them. Not once in the
four times I stopped by to check out that store did I see anything
had more than 100 plumbing issues in two years - Midland, Texas
- That building is 21 years old. Perhaps Dave Hodges and all his
'analysis' baloney should get off his chair and do some on-site
investigating. Guerilla warfare staging area my foot.
in 1989, my husband was a Colonel in the U.S. Army; 27 years in
service. At that time he was the DEH (Director of Engineering
& Housing) at Ft. Carson - a huge military base located near
Colorado Springs. 137,000 acres with a 'population' of about 14,000
at any given time. I worked in contracting at Peterson Air Force
Base, Air Force Space Command in Colorado Springs. Bush, Sr. was
getting ready for the Kuwait rumble. Lots of equipment moving
around all the time.
Sunday, June 14, 2015, I was heading South on I-25 leaving the
Denver, Colorado, area back to Texas. I got off the freeway to
get gas; it was at the most southern entrance onto Ft. Carson.
There were half a dozen sand color military trucks; smaller ones.
One Humvee was getting gas in front of me; a young kid of maybe
20-ish at the pump. I ask if he was part of the Jade Helm exercises?
He looked confused and said no, 'mam, just retuning to base, which
I assumed was Ft. Carson. As they were coming south to north,
I figured they were from the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site (PCMS)
which is also huge in size: 235,896 acres located east of Trinidad,
got back on the freeway and for maybe a half hour or so there
were several caravans (20 or so vehicles each) just like the ones
this short video moving through Corona, California. The only
difference is they were all sand color. Yes, just like the soldiers
in the video they were sitting on top looking bored as they trundled
down the freeway.
few days after I returned home to Big Spring I found this article
dated June 14, 2015, Fort
Carson unit works on new type of warfare at Piñon Canyon:
PIÑON CANYON - "Sweeping movements spanned miles of territory
across southeastern Colorado last week and involved hundreds of
vehicles and thousands of Fort Carson soldiers from the post's
1st Brigade Combat Team." So, I was right about that one. I covered
a story about the Pinon Canyon proposed land expansion by the
government several years ago; that was an on-site investigation.
I am very familiar with that area.
Skousen has been in the trenches a long time and knows what he's
talking about. He puts out the excellent World
Affairs Brief daily. Let me quote from his May 8, 2015 newsletter:
Helm: More Bogus Claims
Jade Helm 15 military exercise is real and it is practicing to
capture and extract dissidents, but martial law is not imminent
and the Wal-Mart closings are not involved. You can find an excellent
review of the truth and hype by the New American. What is
of particular interest is how the media is using conservative's
belief in all the false hype to discredit what is true about conspiracy.
I've always maintained that this is one of the main purposes of
the government putting out false stories about DHS buying 2 billion
rounds of ammo etc. Using NSA spying techniques they are tracking
who believes it and who passes the rumor on.
another bad rumor that is put out by government disinformation
experts—that hundreds of boxcars are being readied with shackles
inside for prisoners. The false
rumor even names the company in Portland, Oregon that makes
I knew someone who lived near where I live in Portland, Oregon.
He worked at Gunderson Steel Fabrication, where they make railroad
cars. Now, I knew this fellow for the better part of 30 years,
and he was kind of a quiet type. He came in to see me one day
excited, and he told me 'they're building prisoner cars.' He
was nervous. Gunderson, he said, had a contract with the federal
government to build 107,200 full length railroad cars, each
with 143 pairs of shackles.
how they always provide details to bolster confidence in the supposed-leaker—he’s
the “quiet type” or a “good Christian” (who wouldn't lie), etc....
Fortunately the rumor was debunked
by a real employee:
article gave me a good laugh. But it is sad to see such balderdash
on Portland indymedia. This nonsense appeared a while ago saying
the same thing. I've worked at Gunderson Inc for many years,
so let's get a few facts straight. One we haven't built boxcars
for a few years now in Portland. They are made down in Mexico;
we only build container cars these days. The 'shackles' are
dimples which are with a small piece of metal going across which
is used for tying goods down.
about it, why would you bother putting prisoners in shackles
anyway [good point]. The Nazis in Germany just herded people
onto a box car at the point of a gun, and then shut the door.
It's hard to cut through steel with your finger nails. And they
could just use the containers if they wanted to transport prisoners,
like they have used in Afghanistan and Iraq. And who the hell
is Brent Gunderson? Gunderson has been owned by Greenbrier since
around 1985. There is no 'Brent' or any other Gunderson on the
board at Greenbrier."
is my take on Jade Helm? Well, first of all, I didn't fall off
the turnip truck yesterday. I've been in the trenches full time
for 24 years. I'm not stupid and anyone who thinks I trust the
U.S. government doesn't know me very well.
soldiers are participating in Jade Helm. Hardly enough to cover,
even if it were possible, implementation of martial law.
military conducts all kinds of exercises year 'round training
troops for more worthless fighting over in the Middle East. They
do it on military bases. Except, for the first time, the military
will be going to several locations in seven states and doing their
practicing on public and private lands with permission and monetary
has been said about the use of 'hostile, 'friendly' and 'neutral'
in military documents. If you've ever been in the military or
married to someone in service that lingo is very common. Texas
was referred to as 'hostile' in one of the documents exposed on
the Internet. Doesn't surprise me. Texas IS all about the Second
Amendment and a whole lot of people in this state don't trust
the U.S. government for valid reasons so it's no surprise to me
some jerk in DoD decides to attach it to Texas. The mistake the
brass made was not being more transparent about those exercises
from the beginning, but then again, it was never their intention.
We the people don't like surprises.
I think there are other reasons for suddenly using public and
private land for military exercises? I do. Anyone who believes
we have an economy in recovery is either in denial or has their
head in rectal darkness. Things are very, very bad in this country.
If it's not Muslim terrorists on U.S. soil, it's militant Mexicans
with their 'reclaim the border states' sedition. Rioting by blacks
deliberately stirred up by race baiting whores like Al Sharpton
and Barry Soetoro aka Obama. A big, bad storm brewing.
know it and the shadow government knows it because they're the
ones orchestrating this nightmare we live in day to day. They
also know there's more than 300,000,000 guns in the hands of the
American people. While there's no doubt in my mind a percentage
of gun owners would turn to jello if push comes to shove (which
no sane person wants), do NOT under estimate the patriotic resolve
of the American people when she is threatened - even if it is
our own government. The Internet has made it possible for military,
just like civilians, to get credible information about what's
really going on, so don't write all of them off, either.
believe using public and private land for military exercises is
test run if you will. For one thing, our military is very popular
these days compared to when John came home from Viet Nam. Condition
the American people to seeing armed military in their towns and
cities. They're the "good guys". I warned about this a
long, long time ago and in columns throughout the years:
Civilian-Military Face-Off (Sacramento
November 30, 1997):
of Rights No Obstacle for the [Marine] Corps." That piece exposed
the mindset way back then that at some point due to: "...the rising
potential for civil disobedience within the inner cities it is
'inevitable' the U.S. military will be employed more often within
American borders." Read on: "The next real war we fight is likely
to be on U.S. soil." That huge essay goes on to talk about military
operations against Americans right here at home.
will be watchers: Texans
organize 'Operation Counter Jade Helm' to keep an eye on the federal
the troops land in Texas for Operation Jade Helm next week, someone
will be waiting for them. Hundreds of people have organized a
Jade Helm" surveillance operation across the Southwestern
states and in an effort to keep an eye on the contentious military
drill that's sparked many suspicious of Uncle Sam's intentions.
Eric Johnston, a 51-year-old retired firefighter and sheriff's
deputy who lives in Kerrville, is a surveillance team leader in
Texas. He'll coordinate three groups of volunteers, about 20 folks
in total, who hope to monitor the SEALs, Green Berets and Air
Force Special Ops in Bastrop, Big Spring and Junction when Jade
Helm kicks off on July 15.
prohibited at the drills, the volunteers could be a main source
of information for the highly-anticipate seven-state exercise.
But locations more precise than the towns around which troops
will drill remain unknown. For the citizens' surveillance operation,
therein lies the first challenge. "If a team member sees two Humvees
full of soldiers driving through town, they're going to follow
them," Johnston said. "And they're going to radio back their ultimate
location. They aren't worried about martial law, he said, but
feel like they can't trust the government, and want to make sure
the Military isn't under orders to pull anything funny."
nice. It's too bad such enthusiasm hasn't been displayed towards
getting our state legislature to reconstitute the constitutional
militia. It is the ONLY thing our corrupt, puppet government fears.
Certainly not a few hundred well-meaning, concerned people. If
constitutional militia existed in the 50 states, or even say
30 states, millions and millions of Americans would have received
a good education on the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights
and what 'martial law' really means. Well organized and armed.
Most unfortunate it hasn't happened.
any event, I shall carry my camera around with me for the next
two months and report back in a future column.
a short note about 9/11. The cost of America's
undeclared "war" (invasion) in Afghanistan has now reached $1
trillion borrowed dollars - massive debt heaped on us all based
on what happened on 9/11. Regular readers of my column know I
continue to press for the truth about the events of 9/11. Military
grade nanothermite is not a conspiracy theory. It was found and
tested from the rubble at the twin towers. A new, powerful film
has been released: The
Anatomy of a Great Deception. For full disclosure I receive
no compensation, but I want you to get a copy (or a few) and share
it with others or give a copy as a present. I've purchased half
a dozen copies and given them to individuals I believe seek the
truth. It's very powerful simply because it's one 'ordinary' man's
story who ask a simple question that led him to a not so simple
journey. There is factual information in this film that many have
never heard about but everyone should. Just a
suggestion, order more than one and give one to a friend.]
