JADE HELM 15: Military Drill Identifying “Hostile” US States Sparks Alarm

| |

Editor’s Post: Is this why so many people, especially in the below-mentioned states, are reporting such a heavy increased military presence in the skies over their homes?


A massive U.S. military drill dubbed “Jade Helm 15” lists Texas, Utah, and part of California as “hostile” or “insurgent pocket” territory. The unclassified information about this drill is causing widespread alarm nationwide, with more than a few analysts suggesting it may be some sort of exercise practicing to impose martial law on Americans fed up with an out-of-control federal government. During the exercises, which will take place over the summer, Special Forces from various branches of the military will work with local law-enforcement in scenarios that, to critics at least, sound suspiciously like they are aimed at subduing rebellious American civilians and states amid a civil war or large-scale unrest. The federal government issued a response dismissing the concerns and saying that the training is to help U.S. forces prepare for overseas missions, but not everyone is convinced.

The most alarming components of the drills highlighted by concerned citizens and media commentators surround an unclassified presentation about Jade Helm 15’s “realistic military training” that was apparently leaked. In a graphic showing the territory across which the training will take place — essentially the American Southwest — different states are colored based on the fictional status of their loyalty to Washington. Colorado, Nevada, and most of California, for example, are dark blue, indicating that they are “permissive.” Utah and Texas are both shaded red, indicating that they are “hostile.” Southern California is also red, with a note reading “insurgent pocket.” Arizona is light blue, which in the legend is listed as “uncertain (leaning friendly),” while New Mexico is brown, or “uncertain (leaning hostile).” Two more states, Florida and Louisiana, have reportedly been added to the exercise.

According to the presentation, the eight-week training program involves Navy SEALs, Army Special Forces Command (Green Berets), Air Force Special Operations Command, Marine Special Operations Command, Marine Expeditionary Units, the 82nd Airborne Division, and unspecified “interagency partners.” Underneath the logo for the Jade Helm drills, a sword with two arrows crossing it, it reads: “Master the Human Domain.” What exactly that means was not clear, but at least some critics of the exercise have suggested it may be a euphemism for subjugating the population of the United States. Indeed, as other analysts have noted, citing available information, the drill almost certainly has nothing to do with defending the Southern border from invasion. The few details that have been provided, though, are causing concern among analysts.

On a slide explaining “what to expect” during the two-month training program for “unconventional warfare,” the document warns of “increased aircraft in the area at night,” possible noise complaints, personnel carrying weapons with blank ammo, and more. Especially alarming to critics of the program is that “some individuals may conduct suspicious activities designed to prepare them for complex environments overseas,” and that “some participants will be wearing civilian attire and driving civilian vehicles.” Separately, a slide describing what “realistic military training” means has also raised alarm. The document mentions that it will be conducted “outside of federally owned property” and that it is designed to “ensure proper coordination between DOD representatives and local and regional authorities.” News reports citing military officials said the DEA, FBI, and the “Joint Personnel Recovery Agency” (JPRA) would also be participating.

Citing other recently leaked U.S. military documents such as “FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations” about interning American civilians in camps, using “psyops” (psychological operations) on those detainees to affect their views, and more, David Hodges with the Common Sense Show said the drill is “undoubtedly the most frightening thing to occur on American soil since the Civil War.” In a widely re-published article about the training program, he said it could be “conclusively stated” that the drill was really about “preparing for a Red, White and Blue invasion.” “This is a massive rehearsal for martial law implementation as well as implementing the proverbial and much rumored Red and Blue List and the ‘snatch and grab’ extractions of key resistance figures from the Independent Media as well as uncooperative political figures,” Hodges added. “The various provisions of Jade Helm make it clear just how dangerous this drill truly is.”

    I used to think that the American government went nuts. Now I’ll getting the feeling that the American people have gone nuts for tolerating it. Please don’t think I’m bashing Americans in particular, we Canadians have been “supping from the same table”.

      The terminally brainwashed populace have been little more than deer in the headlights over the past 15 yrs of the shadow govt implementing their totalitarian C.O.G. plans (via the wholly manufactured ‘terror’ war) in preparation for the impending nuclear war. Everything presented to the world from 2000 to present has been little more than an ongoing dramatization of a functioning servant govt. We’re a post-constitutional, de facto police state, one major (nuclear) false flag away from more overt implementation of the vast totalitarian machinations awaiting us.

      Actually your assessment i spot on. There is so much division, dis-trust, idealogical hard-headedness, fear, and outright egotistical chest thumping by Americans of ALL walks these days, I fear the coming firestorm is going to pit American against American, not to mention against everyone else. Each faction and idealog is going to exercise his “right” to defend what he considers his, from anyone and everyone, and America is going to implode.

    JADE HELM, I justed wanted to inform you that The U.S Military and the federal L.E. ( ATF, FBI, NSA, DHS, eieiooo!} organizations have many on site M.O.U.T facilities. These M.O.U.T sites are mock cities and that it what is used for urban style training. These MOUT sites came to be due to the liability/danger to civilan populations as such training senarios are dangerous. Aircraft can have catasrophic failures/crash,flash bang grenades or any type of training ordance can cause fires, blow off body parts and even cause fatalities, and it is totally reckless for anyone in the federal government to place the people of this country and the military in such jeapordy!
    I can only see this type of action as a way for that lemming at the white house to poke a stick in the eye of partiot minded Americans. And if an unforunate event occurs during their provocation of the American people
    all those involved in allowing,planning and conductiong such training should suffer the penality of TREASON.
    We can’t wait for GOD save th U.S.A, GOD inspired the fathers of the Constitution and they acted with divine guidence which created AMERICA!

    My wife and step-daughter just came in and woke me up to explain they’d
    never seen tanks before

    but they were held up by a train for about ten minutes. They saw all kinds
    of tanks on it.

    Thousands of them they said, but at train speed 10 minutes only amounts to
    hundreds, coming in

    from Mexico by rail. American tanks they think (but I don’t know how that
    would be). I live 1/4 of a mile from the Mexico border. Yes, they have to
    move tanks around but for half a decade of living here we’ve never seen
    even one tank on rail. Never. Not even one. It must have been a very
    impressive sight because they were just jibbering in spanish in excitement
    about having seen it all. Take care, man. Please forward this to Hawk. I
    lost his address at the moment. Terry

    I saw this post on Steve Quayle’s site, Today March 28,2015 so I’m passing it along to Your readers..

    • If you had spent more time watching traffic on I-10, you might have seen equipment on flatbed trucks that you never saw on a traincar.

  • Just wait until some well-armed citizen finally has had enough of the the military drill cum occupation and starts shooting helicopters out of the sky. It is becoming time to treat Herr Obama’s minions like we did King George’s, since they are already treating us worse than Jefferson described in the Declaration of Independence.

    • charmy42

      They aren’t his minions. They don’t make policy. And they don’t much care for this prez either. Shooting them would be tantamount to shooting your best bet at any defense you might have.

      • If they don’t stop violating posse comitatus and the Constitution that they took an oath to protect and defend, they don’t deserve to be treated any different than the common traitors they are acting like, regardless of whether they are anyone’s minions or not.

        • Dew Free

          If they follow an order that leads to more than 10 arrest and 3 lives,those whom are involved are traitors and nothing will change that fact.military acting in any capacity on the soil that belongs to the continental united States that is not fighting for the little guy is certainly traitor to all the Constitution.No less than the soldier that fired the shot in the 60s and or the one that fired at citizen militia .

    Our government already has mock towns just for this reason! And this is so for public safety and legal concerns.
    Therefore they are NOT training for foreign assaults, they are training for the real deal- assaults in a major metropolitan area in the USA in order to completely control and subjugate we citizens if they feel the need to!

  • Bert

    I’m not typically the type to jump to conclusions, but this kinda makes me wonder if we’re not going to see some sort of coup later this summer. I’ve thought for awhile that Obama might try to find a way to remain in office. Maybe this is the beginnings of his plan.

    • Another Thought Criminal

      I think you give the puppet office of president way too much credit.

      • The office isn’t a puppet, the president is.

        • Another Thought Criminal

          Everyone who’s held the office since JFK has been a puppet. To just say that the president is a puppet may incorrectly imply that it’s just this current puppet.

          • JFK was probably the only non-puppet since Lincoln, although Carter might not have been one.

          No soldier is content with fighting to the death until he has been blooded a bit and tested in the heat of the battle.Men you would have never thought would do ,will rise up to the occasion and make stand .look at Ukraine ,standing up to Russia.As far as I know they did not have guns before the event unfolded.
          The fact that they are standing up to veterans of other wars is a testiment to their resolve.The fact is we the people Run this Country,it is our Government that forgets,or just plain does not understand!But please to not give up your hand as this is just play time.Even the Soldiers that are involved should know this.

  • Jerry Mcdurmott

    Never lost Iraq, we were ordered to leave. And we have no major ground deployments to Syria. Ignorance is bliss I guess. But anyway, I and most soldiers I have ever met would oppose any action against US citizens or our constitution. I find this exercise to be suspicious and somewhat alarming, but your ignorance has obviously made you blind.

    • charmy42

      Agreed on all counts. The US soldiers have made a vow to protect and defend the constitution. They also vow to protect the president against all enemies, foreign and domestic. If something such as this truly does occur, many will make a choice as to which they will follow, since they will not be able to do both. Most are patriots first, and hold a deep love to the constitution, which is permanent, as opposed to a president that is transient. This I know from personal knowledge. While some will surely stand and follow orders, a large percentage will not because they no longer allow idiots to join the service.

      • Michael

        You have never taken the oath that a military member takes have you? If you did you would know that NO WHERE in that oath does it mention the president.

        • goldenshepard

          You are correct Michael

        • archer

          Exactly, the oath is to defend the constitution not the government.

      • sniperbait66

        Where did you get such a nonsensical notion as this? We took NO Oath to protect any damned Politician. If any Politician tries to change that, he/she will be shot as a Tyrannical Traitor. Adolph Hitler did that to the German Forces after he took over Germany. Only THEY bought it.

      • Matt Baker

        Exactly what they said our oath was to the constitution of the united states… I would never pledge to defend a politician, or even a body of politicians…

        We did swear to obey the LAWFUL orders of the officers (commissioned and NCO) appointed over us…. but those must follow the US Constitution and the UCMJ.

    • Iraq wasn’t lost true, both strategically and tactically. Syria however was where O[s]ama frigging gave weapons to ISIS, the same thing the CIA did in 1979 for the Talibann.

      Jade Helm on the other hand is all too real, dangerous,and tyrannical.

      As for protecting the constitution, the others are right. The government swore an oath to uphold our constitutions.Only D.C. dumba$$es think it is to uphold any law passed or the politicians passing them. We have a right to revolt according to Thomas Jefferson.

  • mtrombly

    Somehow I just can’t see Arizona as being considered “potentially friendly” by gov’t forces bent on rooting out “insurgent right wing hostiles” and sending tens of thousands of Americans off to internment camps for re-education. What I CAN see however is Arizona being considered able to hold its own in the situation of an incursion across the US – Mexico border by “insurgent forces” of say Hamas, ISIS, etc. I can see Texas, due to the proliferation of Cartel and other already hostile cross border insurgency, being labeled as a “hostile” region. I can see the southern California border region as being labeled “insurgent pocket” for the same reason. I can see N.M. being labled “potentially hostile” due to the population being willing and able to fight such a cross-border insurgency, but being too sparse and widespread to be effectual in doing so. I can see California, Nevada, and Colorado as being “permissive” (a.k.a. sympathetic) to such a cross-borer insurgency due to population demographics and liberal views regarding border issues. Utah… Im not that familiar with Utah, so why it would be labeled hostile, I’m not sure,… unless it was to create more of an operational challenge by having a hostile force situated in the backyard of a potential area of operations.

    There are two ways one can view the maps related to Jade Helm 15. One is politically, from the stand-point of a political take over by an administration unwilling to give up power and coming after the guns of “God fearing, Gun loving” Constitutional Americans. The other is Strategically, from the standpoint of a cross border insurgency by forces hostile to the US.

    The latter being the first that came to my mind. When I looked at the Jade Helm maps, the first thing I thought of was a military commander viewing an area of operations map of the southwestern US after a cross border invasion by a hostile force and the areas that had fallen to that force, the areas that were holding their own, the ares that were potentially going to fall to that force, and the areas that were sympathetic to that force. The Jade Helm maps fit such a senario to a “T”.

    Jade Helm may very well be an exercise to train special operations forces to operate within the confines of the US, and deal with a panicked and potentially confrontational US population…in the process of attempting to counter an invasion of the United States by forces hostile to the United States in EXACTLY the theater of operations indicated by the maps. THAT is what I see when I look at Jade Helm 15.

    im sure the conspiracy theory fanatics will provide reams of info as to how and why my assessment is flawed, and that’s fine. Keep in mind, while you are preparing to do battle with the forces of Unc’ Sam, you may find yourselves doing battle against ISIS and HAMAS fighters; and THEY are a lot more formidable than anything Unc’ Sam can field, for one reason… THEY look forward to dying in battle, where as Americans look forward to SURVIVING the battle.

    Unc’ Sam isn’t training Spc Ops forces to go against Americans, What would be the point? Americans pose NO threat to Unc’ Sam, if they did the present administration would not BE the present administration. No. Unc’ Sam is training his forces to go against what is soon going to be coming across that open border instead of illegals…. and dealing with all the conspiracy folks who are going to explode in a multi-directional firestorm against any and everyone they consider to be a threat to their own personal survival, which is what those trained ISIS and HAMAS fighters are hoping for… uncontrolled CHAOS, because that furthers their cause and HINDERS a US military response.

    And THAT ensures the fall of the US, because there will be NO organized, coordinated, EFFECTIVE resistance nor response.

    Why are there NO stories on YAHOO or other major websites about this. That alone tells me that there is a cover-up. This is a MAJOR news story that can be found NOWHERE ! The overwhelming liberally controlled new sources have not only played down this major event… but has worked VERY hard to try to discredit any legitimate concerns about these MARTIAL LAW Maneuvers. Our OWN Military being used to literally attack American Citizens on American soil. Entering their homes at GUN POINT ! Confiscating anything and everything that they want. Make sure to thank Obama !
    The news of JADE HELM 15 has caught the internet on fire. Now, coming out of the woodwork are the nay sayers, propagandists, and straight out liars. Yes, I am calling them exactly what they are, liars. Political Correctness stops here. The truth may hurt, but it is the truth. If you don’t like that, then either go to a different site or change your behavior.

    There have been individuals from “trolls” to others that “claim” they are ex-Special Operations Command stating “this is not a real drill,” Or that “the documents have been modified.” These statements are not true, and are only being used in another “PSYOP” upon the American People. I will prove to you beyond the shadow of a doubt this operation is, in fact, true, and call these people out for what they are, liars! Anyone who tells you this is not a planned drill is lying to you either blatantly or by complete ignorance, neither of which is acceptable.

    JADE HELM 15 is a (SOC) Special Operations Command (RMT) Realistic Military Training planned drill for the South Western United States covering seven states which broke in alternative media almost a week ago. Freedom Outpost’s Joe McMaster covered this on March 20, 2015. I will not sit idly by and allow our alternative media to be portrayed as “conspiracy theorists” by those that are ignorant or liars. I stand in defense of all the alternative media that have reported and helped to expose this very real “exercise/drill,” JADE HELM 15, to the American Public. I challenge the propagandists, liars, and PSYOP’s to debunk this! You have been caught with your pants down and now you are trying to do “damage control.” It’s not going to work.
