This summer the U.S. government will begin an unprecedented joint military exercise involving several states and tens of thousands of participants ranging from special operations groups to volunteer citizens.

The official purpose of the exercise, dubbed Operation Jade Helm 15, according to the military is to prepare American soldiers and special operations teams for emerging foreign threats. But investigations by independent media outlets suggest it is much more than a standard “training exercise.”

Involving as many as 10 states, the operation reportedly identifies several hostile areas around the United States, including Texas and Utah and aims to have the military prepared to “master the human domain” by utilizing citizen reports and surveillance to accomplish their mission. In other words, as Dave Hodges recently noted, they want to engender trust in order to control “the totality of the physical, cultural, and social environments that influence human behavior.”

And though spokespeople for the U.S. government insist the exercise is strictly for training our military to protect our national interests in foreign theaters and has nothing to do with domestic deployment of military personnel, some details suggest that the Jade Helm 15 operation will include strategies for identifying and rounding up dissidents and subversives.

To add further fuel to the fire EKS Group LLC., a Federal contractor, is now seeking Department of Defense role players who will be tasked with what appears to be exercises that simulate the forced detention and relocation of American citizens.

According to the job posting, the Department of Defense is seeking individuals “to play a vital role in assisting with this security related training.”

The job description itself, says Dave Hodges, is a clear indicator that the Jade Helm 15 operation has been designed as an exercise for a future implementation of martial law, wherein the government will declare a national emergency and lock-down the entire country, complete with the round up and relocation of those deemed to be hostile threats to our national security.

Why else would the job qualifications require applicants to have the ability to walk up to 18 miles per day in blistering heat and be transported in a car for up to 12 hours at a time?

As The Common Sense Show notes, one can’t help but think that these surveillance role players have been tasked with simulating what appears to be mass relocations that involve long car drives or 18 hour walks that bring to mind images of prisoner death marches from the 20th century.

Did anyone else question why an applicant would have to walk up to 18 miles in a day, or be able to ride in a vehicle for up to 12 hours in a 24 hour period?  What could one be possibly walking up to 18 miles towards?

Why would an applicant have to be eligible for a top secret security clearance for a part-time job that only pays $14.00 per hour? It is obvious that the DoD does not want anyone leaking what Jade Helm 15 is really all about.

This put me in the mind of the Bataan Death March of WW II in which the Japanese soldiers conducted a brutal forced march of nearly 70 miles for American POW’s captured after the fall of the Philippines. During the march, the Japanese murdered thousands of American soldiers.

The idea that the U.S. government would do such a thing, especially to its own citizens, is unfathomable to most. The evidence, however, suggests that this is at least one of many emergency response plans set up by the government in the event of a major nationally declared crisis.

Relocation camps have already been set up across the country and many of them are sitting right in front of us in the form of sports stadiums capable of housing thousands of people, while others have been hidden along railroad tracks outside of urban population centers.

Moreover, just a few years ago the military began training some of their personnel as Internment Specialists to man these camps. Shortly thereafter, they began sub-contracting jobs to provide “temporary camp services” that include everything from catering to medical services. According to the request, these services would be required on short notice – likely in the aftermath of a national emergency declaration – and would be needed across five (5) established emergency FEMA “regions.”

Given what we know about the Jade Helm 15 operation, previous exercises, and existing Doomsday Executive Orders, is it out of the question to suggest that our government, right before our eyes, is now putting the final processes and procedures into place for a coming implementation of martial law across the United States of America?

We know the government has been simulating collapse scenarios in anticipation of widespread civil unrest and breakdown. This can only mean they are getting ready for something big.

What they haven’t done is to tell the American people that they, too, need to be preparing for major changes.
