Canada-US Joint Military Exercises, All Canadian Target Stores and 5 US Wal-Mart Stores Closed: The Jade Helm Plot Thickens with Latest Developments‏





Several days ago I wrote about Operation Jade Helm 15, what we knew then and what we didn’t know. Not included was recent disclosure that five Wal-Mart stores on next to no notice last week were mysteriously being closed in California, Texas, Oklahoma and Florida for as long as up to six months with Wal-Mart’s bogus excuse of plumbing problems.  Meanwhile, it’s been confirmed that none of the five stores in question even have permits for any plumbing work.


A sad irony is these massive employee layoffs came exactly the same time that Wal-Mart two months ago had agreed to raise its workers’ wages up to $9 an hour, though still not enough to live independently anywhere in America with today’s cost of living. That suddenly 2200 workers were given but a 5-hour notice that they’re out of a job is a low blow, but common enough for how Big Business coldly operates within America’s still struggling, stagnant, faltering economy. But Wal-Mart's big lie as the world’s biggest retail chain to so abruptly close its stores in the face of all the skyrocketing speculation and mounting concerns over the largest covert military operation on US soil in modern times scheduled this summer with JH 15 only added flashpoint fuel to the spreading wildfire of bewilderment facing extremely worried Americans.


Learning that 1200 of the US’s elite military fighting forces from the Green Beret, Delta Force and Navy Seals would be going undercover in up to ten states, compounded by news of massive closures of such large retail buildings is triggering an enormous cloud of conjecture that the closed Wal-Mart stores will be used as possible processing areas for dissident round-ups once martial law is declared.


Then a day ago more information came to light from a labor organization representing the laid off Wal-Mart employees claiming the store was retaliating against its workers attempting to organize for better pay. Canadian employees at the giant retailer north of the border have suffered similar reprisals from Wall-Mart. Despite the four Walton siblings said to be the richest family in the world worth over $152 billion, near 2 out of 3 of their 1.3 million US employees earn less than $25,000 a year. Wal-Mart has a long shameful history grossly underpaying its workers a decent enough wage to subsist without resorting to federal relief through food stamps much less refusing to provide health insurance coverage for its employees. So while the Waltons predatorily squeeze even more billions in profit out of its feudal labor force, the wealthiest family is also gouging American taxpayers having to subsidize Wal-Mart's underpaid workers with federal relief programs.


But now the plot is thickening into a disturbing cauldron of fear and even more astonishment boiling over into potential panic with the latest round of revelations uncovered. Apparently simultaneous with the national worry over Jade Helm, we now learn that Canada as of Monday has launched its own military “training exercises” called Operation Maple Resolve involving joint covert operations with both US and British military forces that will last until May 23rd. To accommodate this large scale military drill, astoundingly all 133 Target stores in Canada have been closed and 17000 Target workers have been laid off and told to find other means of employment.  


The world’s largest retailers Target, Wal-Mart and Home Depot would not team up with both the US and Canadian governments to ostensibly lose billions of revenue dollars from mass closures for nothing. They’re being covertly compensated by highly lucrative payout contracts from both North American national governments of course at taxpayer expense. Given a billion dollar development subsidy for expansion a decade ago by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), a secret partnership with Wal-Mart stores was established internationally as emergency military command and control centers. They’ve installed the cyber-infrastructure to be used as backdoor data base operation centers for requisitioning military supplies as well as for temporary processing of extracted citizens on their way to permanent FEMA camps. The DHS and Wal-Mart’s ultra-cozy relationship came through a few years ago in a propaganda pitch Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano made urging Wal-Mart employees to “keep our ‘Hometown’ safe by immediately reporting any suspicious activity to a local Big Brother fusion center and/or police near you.”


Co-incidentally, the Kremlin reported last week that exactly when the five Wal-Marts in the US were shutting their doors that a Wal-Mart store in Yemen also suddenly closed to instantly become a fully operational Special Ops command center directing combat operations in the latest North Africa-Middle East Empire proxy war there. This indicates the strategic value US military places on Wal-Marts internationally. And then of course we already know that Wal-Mart along with other transnational giants like Facebook and Apple have all been secretly feeding NSA and Big Brother massive amounts of data collection about us based on facial recognition technology.


Also uncovered in recent years is the extensive underground conduit system of trucking and railway routes with arteries spreading throughout the country that are linked in remarkably close proximity specifically to the five Wal-Mart locations closed last week as well as to hundreds of other Wal-Marts across the nation. Trillions of taxpayer dollars have been top secretly funneled by the Department of Defense, DHS, the US intelligence community and the Army Corps of Engineers working with the nation’s largest private defense contractor Lockheed Martin to build elaborate underground living bunkers complete with deep underground military bases (Black Ops’ DUMB’s) along with a hi-tech emergency transportation system below the earth’s surface to serve as a contingency plan where the elite can safely seek refuge while the rest of us are dying in a nuclear, biological and/or chemical war raging above ground. This explains the seemingly suicidal course our international Gov.Corps crime cabal has us on in its demonic race to World War III.


Another piece of unsettling evidence drawing lots of attention these days is a Department of Defense private security and investigations contractor called EKS Group, LLC currently advertising job openings from its Sierra Vista, Arizona office for “Surveillance Role Players” hired just in time for Jade Helm to work with Special Operations, the FBI, DHS and DEA. Apparently they need to be young, fit and able to walk up to 18 miles a day ready for deployment in the military exercises that “simulate” forced detention and relocation of American citizens. Obama’s long been actively recruiting young Americans for an enormous civilian “national defense” corps (not unlike prewar Nazi youth groups) for just such purposes to aid the feds and military during emergency martial law conditions.


Dave Hodges of the Common Sense Show who recently reported the ISIS training camp near El Paso eight miles from the US border and surface to air missiles at a newly installed Air Force base outside Lubbock, Texas also linked Canadian forces to Jade Helm in his Tuesday post. Feeding the rumor mill in overdrive is the unusual amount of reported activity in recent days and weeks across North America of massive movement of military supplies, vehicles, armaments and equipment in both Canada and the United States.


Meanwhile, an apparent spokesman for Jade Helm, retired senior Special Forces non-commissioned officer Tom Meade, has stated that joint inter-agency law enforcement like the FBI and DEA will also participate in the two month long summer exercise with Special Operations forces. To quell some of the internet hype claiming foreign troops will be part of Jade Helm, Meade denied that any military personnel from foreign countries would be involved, though his response still left the door open, “Currently... it is US only.”


An example of just how much contentiousness over Jade Helm is drawing even within one internet news site is the recent back and forth activity at Veterans Today (VT). After VT journalist Robert O’ Dowd’s article entitled “Prelude to False Flag and Martial Law” was posted last Saturday, head editors Gordon Duff and Jim W. Dean a day later rebuked the earlier piece claiming that their inside sources told them Jade Helm links to martial law and an impending ISIS invasion were pure disinformation planted by neocons in the federal government to intentionally smear the reputation and credibility of all independent news media. O’Dowd resigned at VT and noted scholar, former professor and author-activist Jim Fetzer wrote an article posted on Tuesday titled “Jade Helm is not a ‘Training Op’ but Something Far More,” in the face of the latest developments publicly siding with O’ Dowd. Two hours later his VT article was abruptly removed from the site.


Pentagon official Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria by email supplied the Washington Post with the official Jade Helm explanation, “This exercise is routine training to maintain a high level of readiness for Army Special Operations Forces because they must be ready to support potential missions anywhere in the world on a moment’s notice.” However, that kind of double speak went over like a lead balloon to many suspicious Americans. Blending in with foreign populations seems far less plausible and even less likely than conducting clandestine operations blending in amongst Americans on American soil. For over a decade US Department of Homeland Security and law enforcement across the nation have increasingly prepped Americans with false flags and even more so, targeting US citizens as the latest insurgents in its counterterrorism wars, labeling them potential home grown terrorists that include law abiding citizen dissidents who actively oppose the federal government’s tyranny.


This extremely alarming, unfolding reality in turn has naturally aroused rising suspicion that Americans this summer will become victims of extraction, a term used to forcibly take out citizens either by assassination or rounding them up and placing them in FEMA prison camps. All the empty Target and Wal-Mart stores in North America are speculated as potential processing centers to temporarily warehouse people instead of the usual cheap goods from China. Because what is actually occurring will definitely not be disclosed by the oligarch owned mainstream media, the onus of disseminating the truth will fall on independent internet media outlets to continue digging into Jade Helm for the government crime cabal’s real agenda. Americans will need to be both vigilant and selective about what they choose to believe during this critical time leading up to July 15th.
