1960's era spy movies starring Dean Martin, but rather, the new Special Operations exercise scheduled to run from July 15 to Sept. 15, called Jade Helm.
According to the Washington Post (linked to above)
"The mission is vast both geographically and strategically: Elite service members from all four branches of the U.S. military will launch an operation this summer in which they will operate covertly among the U.S. public and travel from state to state in military aircraft. Texas, Utah and a section of southern California are labeled as hostile territory, and New Mexico isn’t much friendlier".
There are no end to the conspiracy theories that have arisen, on the Internet, after the Army Special Operations Command made it's announcement last week. The Post article has a link to the released announcement; unfortunately, when I clicked on the link, I received an error message that the connection had been lost. I'm sure that some conspiracy theorists will see that as further proof that something is up.
Most of the conspiracies I've come across link Jade Helm with the recent closing of five Walmart stores. While a good many people see these closings as Walmart's attempt to get back at workers trying to unionize for higher wages, the Internet is ablaze with videos purporting that Jade Helm is part of the preparation for martial law in the US and that Walmart is in on the plot.
No one believes Walmart's claim that the closings are related to plumbing issues.
One particular video attempts to prove that Walmart + Jade Helm + Martial Law = Jesus is about to return.
This guy maintains that Walmart has aided the govt. by connecting Walmart stores, nation wide, with a series of underground tunnels.
Another, uh, nut-job not only tells us about the Walmart/Special Ops connection, but includes Home Depot and Lowes as well.
The reason for Martial law?
According to this video, Russia is plotting to arm insurgents in the US in order to bring about a civil war, in retaliation to the US interference with Russia's take over of Ukraine. The guy making the video claims to have gotten his information from a translation of an article on the Moscow Times website. Thing is, that site is already in English......no need for a translation from Russian.
I'm waiting for the day when this Walmart/Special Ops craziness brings up Hillary Clinton. After all, she was once on the board of directors of Walmart, back in the day when Bill was Governor of Arkansas.
