Childlike (Make Believe) Soldiers And Jade Helm 15

Childlike Make Believe Soldiers Caught with Huge Weapons Stash to Fight Back Jade Helm

In Gaston County, North Carolina, three men have been arrested for gathering a large arsenal and constructing explosives in response to a feared government invasion known as Jade Helm, reports the Asheville Citizen Times.
The three men: Walter Eugene Litteral, 50, Christopher James Barker, 41, and Christopher Todd Campbell, 30, were arrested after the FBI had investigated them for over a month. The FBI’s investigation began when it learned that the men were attempting to make homemade bombs, which Litteral reportedly referred to as “game changers.”
According to the criminal complaint, Litteral planned to make explosives out of tennis balls covered in nails and coffee cans filled with ball bearings.
Litteral also purchased Kevlar helmets, body armor, face masks and hand-held radios in preparation for what the group feared would soon be a military invasion. Litteral also allegedly planned to purchase an assault rifle and ammunition for Barker. Barker cannot purchase a firearm or ammunition for himself due to his prior convictions for cocaine and stolen goods.
The men are due for detention hearings Thursday. They face a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $250,000 fine. Campbell has also been charged with a separate firearm charge that carries a maximum punishment of 10 years and a $10,000 fine.

Jade Helm 15...Martial Law via The Whirling Wind

The Whirling Wind blows across our psyches and in some cases reveals severe paranoia and the culminating extreme reaction to "the Other."

Kudos to Benjamin T. Moore Jr.

There’s Money In Fear Mongering

If you spend any time on-line or watch certain news channels, by now you’ve heard the phrase, “Jade Helm.” You probably know it has something to do with a semi-clandestine military operation in several States in the South West United States. You’ve also probably heard the phrases, “martial law,” “invasion,” “FEMA camps” and “round ups.”

Jade Helm Mad Max
Mad Max
Those who speak about this subject, often speak with great conviction in matter of fact, “I told you so” terms. Like finally vindicated “prophets of doom,” the day of judgement they’ve long predicted has finally arrived! It’s as though they’ve conflated the movies, “Red Dawn and Mad Max” and taken them as holy writ, a foretelling of the “end times” which are now upon us!

There are rightwing talk shows and YouTube channels devoted to little more than scaring the pants off all who will listen. They combine a mix of flawed eschatology – Biblical “end times” theology – with  the latest conspiracy theories, spice it with some racist, “dog whistle” conservative ideology and serve this toxic brew up as if it were a gourmet meal. The beauty of it? Since you cannot prove a negative, it is near impossible to prove them wrong! “The bogeyman is under your bed!” You look under your bed and see nothing more harmful than “dust bunnies,” they’ll tell you “he moved to your closet!” You rush over to your closet, fling open the door then they’ll tell you, “he was too quick for you! He’s back under the bed!”

They get you rushing back and forth, between bed and closet so quickly, you don’t have time to consider, what if there is no bogeyman? In the meantime, a commercial break tells you to buy Gold and Silver or buy nitrogen packed food… and they get paid!

Jade Helm – What Is It?

Jade Helm Map
Map of States where exercise will occur.
Jade Helm is nothing more than a military training exercise to prepare our troops for operating in urban and suburban environments where there are non-combatant civilians. The days of armies lining up on battle lines and shooting it out with one another are largely a thing of the past. International borders are now fixed, Russia’s adventures in the Ukraine notwithstanding, and nobody is really interested in going to the headache and expense of annexing a recalcitrant Nation State into their national boundaries.

Warfare today is asymmetric. Insurgents attempting to take over a country, terrorist cells hiding amongst non-combatant civilians, carpet bombing a city or rolling in a tank brigade would be tantamount to taking a sledgehammer to a spider crawling up your wall. You may not like spiders, but a big hole in your wall? Really???

Our troops need to be able to operate within these environments with surgical precision. They need to be able to work with local governing bodies and their law enforcement personal. They need to be able to interface their intelligence gathering techniques with whatever the locals are able to provide. They need to practice the logistics of resupply and equipment movement in such a way as to interface positively with a trepidatious civilian population. Where exactly would you suggest they practice and perfect these techniques?

No Invasion. No Martial Law.
