What is Jade Helm And Why Could it Ruin Your Summer


Starting July 15th and running through September 15th, the Special Operations Command of the United States Military will be conducting a military training drill. But this is not going to be just any drill, its theater of operations will include much of the Southwestern United States, from California to Texas. So massive is the area of operations, it begs for a closer look at the objectives. On the surface one might think that it was an exercise that was set up in response to the huge maneuvers that Russia held earlier this year, but the fact is that this operation has been planned for much longer than the Russian operations.

Many people both in and out of the media have assumed that “Jade Helm” was to be a training exercise to test and develop tactics to protect the Southwest from an invasion by a foreign government, drug cartels, or possibly terrorist organization. However, the Operational Plan for the exercise clearly shows that this drill is about the implementation of martial law and the subsequent pacification and subjugation of the American people by their government.

The pretext of the operation is that the citizens of several states have risen up against the tyranny of their government and are forming their own union. Texas, Utah and Southern California have all told Washington to take a hike. This drill is also about “martial law” being used as a preventative measure in states which “might” lean towards civil war against the government siding with the other states, (i.e. California, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico).


Jade Helm is more than just a military exercise. The operational elements include both military and law enforcement units along with electronic warfare and even DHS and FEMA resources. Within the overall objectives are test cases that deal with the isolation of entire towns, both physically and electronically. Simultaneously cutting off the flow of both goods and services and information in and out of selected areas. Other exercises included in the overall plan concentrate on the removal and detention of high value provocateurs and officials. All this makes Jade Helm the most concerning operation to have ever been conducted on American soil.

So what is the true purpose of Jade Helm? According to sources inside the Department of Homeland Security, It is an eight week test of current plans to reduce and control events and populations engaged in unconventional warfare against the authority of the government of the United States and to test the working relationships that exists between the armed forces and the law enforcement agencies in the affected areas.

The use of the words, “unconventional warfare” makes it clear that this exercise is not dealing with a “Red Dawn” style invasion involving foreign subjects, but either one or more of the Southwestern States trying to throw off the yoke of an oppressive government, the “Reconquista” movement trying to break away from the United States or drug cartels trying to establish a Narco Terrorist State thanks to the unrestricted access given them by the administration. Unconventional Warfare means the guerrilla warfare nature of the anticipated and rehearsed conflict of an out gunned population against a superior force. Therefore, it can be surmised that Jade Helm is not preparing for a foreign invasion, but rather one of American citizens fighting for their rights. Based on all these facts, from both inside and outside the government, Jade Helm, is a massive rehearsal for martial law implementation as well as implementing the proverbial and long 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.


The operations planner for the U.S. Army’s Jade Helm realistic military training, Thomas Mead, has publicly stated that “We have Army Green Berets, Navy Seals, Marine Special Operations Command, the 82nd Airborne Division and we also have some of our ‘inter-agency’partners such as the DEA, FBI and the ‘Joint Personnel Recovery Agency'(JPRA) that will be working with us.” The use of Green Berets, Navy Seals and Special Operations Command forces speaks to the unconventional composition of the overall makeup of this group. Among the many duties for these three Special Operations groups include infrastructure raids, assassination of key enemy personnel, reconnaissance, and extraction of key enemy personnel for detention and/or intelligence gathering. These are just the type of forces that would be used should an operation be ordered to activate the much fabled “RED LIST”.

This for those that don’t know, is the name given a list with contains the names and whereabouts of key resistance figures that would be kidnapped and “dealt with” in advance of the implementation of martial law. A detailed analysis of the language of Jade Helm has convinced me that we are looking at the implementation of the “snatch and grab” of key resistance figures to the coming marital law.Sources have said that in past drills of this nature, Red List extraction troops are helicoptered in the early morning hours (e.g. 3 AM) land, offload personnel and extract the intended targets, SWAT team style.

The Jade Helm overview, even has a section entitled What to Expect. Operation planners state that the public should anticipate  “increased aircraft in the area at night” and that law enforcement “May receive noise complaints”. Typically helicopters are used to transport troops and extract targets in operations of this type and they are usually conducted at night. In fact, the same section goes on to state that “Role players” will be participating in Jade Helm. “Some individuals (i.e. civilian insurgents) may conduct “suspicious activities”  What would a  “suspicious activity” for the purpose of this drill, be? Would it consist of pretending to be dragged off to a FEMA camp at 3 A.M.? Would it be engaging in simulated insurgency activities associated with guerrilla war strategies? There are so many possibilities and they are all associated with civilian resistance against a tyrannical force.

“The scariest admission of all however, is that JPRA, will be included in these games”. The Joint Personnel Recovery Agency (JPRA) maintains a series of training sites whose subject matter includes:

Prisoners of war; hostages and detainees; evasion and escape; search and rescue; Prison survival techniques and experiences; geography and cartography, natural science, ethnology, and country studies; terrorism; military and Naval science; natural and emergency medicine. While most of the topics contained in JPEA training have to do with skills needed by POW’s to survive if captured, one can find an interesting topic called Detainees. Here is an excerpt from their manuals.

Restricted U.S. Army Internment and Resettlement Operations Manual

FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations

In section 1-10 of 3-39.40,  “A Civilian detainee” is a civilian who is interned during armed conflict, occupation, or other military operation for security reasons, for protection, or because he or she committed an offense against the detaining power.

In section 3-56 of 3-39.40, the following draconian provisions are applied to “detainees”:

  • “Develops PSYOP products that are designed to pacify and acclimate detainees or DCs to accept U.S. I/R facility authority and regulations (Author’s note: PSYOP Products such as the use of torture such as water-boarding and sleep deprivation).
  • Gains the cooperation of “detainees”to reduce the number of guards needed.
  • Identifies malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders within the facility who may try to organize resistance or create disturbances.
  • Develops and executes indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes (i.e. brainwashing of detainees).
  • Identifies political activists.
  • Plans and executes a PSYOP program that produces an understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions.

The use of the word detainee is conspicuous and you can see, it has specific meaning with regard to a Red List extraction action. In effect, this is the black site for political dissidents. Both Jade Helm and the FM 3-39.40 are both Army manuals written exclusively on dealing with civilian personnel in martial law settings. Under the NDAA, designating select citizens as a detainee and holding them indefinitely is legal under this unconstitutional legislation.

In the operations foreword, the States of Utah and Texas are listed as hostile states along with part of Southern California. These states are not geographically contiguous. Subsequently, we are looking at Jade Helm as being the suppression of pockets of civil resistance. The use of the 82nd Airborne is also suggestive of the fact that the authorities anticipate that there could be civilian militias rising up, perhaps in combination with veterans groups and possibly military units loyal to the citizens of the United States.

  • New Mexico is listed as leaning towards being hostile.
  • California, Nevada and Colorado are listed as being loyal, permissive, to military authority and martial law.
  • Arizona is listed as unknown, but leaning toward being friendly.

In the plan overview, repeated reference is made about the cooperation between the Department of Defense (DOD) and local law enforcement (LEA). After reading this document, Program 1033 started to make a lot of sense. It is the militarization of local police with former military equipment (tanks, machine guns, etc.). It is interesting to note that it was the NDAA legislation that created Program 1033. Obviously, the purpose of this is to turn the local police into a martial law occupation force.

I am very concerned that DHS, listed as an inter-agency partner, is a part of this drill for the following reasons: I believe a significant number of American military will NOT fire upon American citizens. What seems logical and something that should frighten all Americans is to wonder if DHS will be a part of Jade Helm? Especially with all the ammunition they purchased last year.

It is clear, that the U.S. military along with the current administration and their minions believes, or hopes, that there is going to be something happen that is so catastrophic that an American Civil War will ensue. The cause of such an uprising is not important at this time, you can pick any number of reasons, and they will probably all be wrong. What is important, is that our military, and the very people that are charged with protecting us from enemies both foreign and domestic, are combining to hold a two month long training exercise whose scope is one of putting down a domestic insurrection against a government gone wild. God knows we have the government, and it is only a matter of time before we have such an uprising.

    I’m sure you were there.

    No they didn’t, our communist sympathizing democratic Congress did. And were too cowardly to declare war on N.Vietnam when they didn’t even wait for all our troops to finish leaving to break the peace agreement and invade.

  3. Tom Hults | 03/27/2015 at 12:46 PM |

    Look into joining one of your local State militia groups. They are organized and are training on a regular basis to protect themselves, their families and their community in just such an event.

  4. Matt Wade | 03/27/2015 at 11:55 AM |

    seriously think about it… our military has struggled (and failed) to deal with the insurgency in Iraq, which at the time was never estimated to be more than 10,000 strong. i think its fair to say that 1% of the U.S. population would take up arms. now your looking at an insurgency 3 million strong across America. look how much the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan cost, with no positive result. how long will any soldiers that are loyal to government fight when there’s no money left to pay them. you think people will still be paying taxes? our government doesn’t stand a fuckin chance. they just think they can scare us into believing they do.

    The military do this training every year, its nothing new and just part of the annual training. People who are trying to make a big deal out of it must have been asleep a very long time because this happens every year same location.

  11. Edmund Long | 03/26/2015 at 1:06 PM |

    Better believe it . have’t you noticed all the ,milltary choppers flying around the cities around the country lately ? I have and it aint funny .

    Hey, hero, did you ever hear of Vietnam? A disorganized bunch of locals drove out the most powerful military on earth. Or weren’t you born yet?

  16. Asphalt_Ranger | 03/26/2015 at 1:37 AM |

    You better believe it too…you’re not doing yourself any favors living in denial.

  17. Asphalt_Ranger | 03/26/2015 at 1:31 AM |

    While that’s true, you have to realize that we aren’t organized into an effective fighting force. There will undoubtedly be large pockets of resistance, but without leadership and organization, how long do you think that resistance will last.

  18. So they are trying to round up militias. Now they want to make a bad situation worse. Go figure! They are wanting to upset the population. Texas Government has already told they to take a hike, and so now they feel that the law enforcements will back them? Humm.

  19. Fred Freedombach | 03/25/2015 at 5:27 PM |

    and why would we let them train for something they are going to do to us because we dont agree with gov

  20. Fred Freedombach | 03/25/2015 at 5:24 PM |

    i would not trust that it is just a drill

  21. Pelly Hardin | 03/25/2015 at 2:32 PM |

    They’re not doing this for training .purpose this is a diversion for low resistance.

  22. David F. Podesta | 03/25/2015 at 1:56 PM |

    Just a thought, but all things considered, maybe it’s not an “exercise”. Maybe they really are going to round up all the illegals and drug dealers, or more realistically, maybe they’ll be rounding up patriotic Americans. With this POS in office, who really knows?

  23. This is what Obama has been planing for,he wants to become a Dictator,and being a muslim smpathizer he ,told U when made speach at Un the Future will no be for those who slander Islam. He drives Bill Oreilly nuts tying to figure out why he is doing all things that he does. its just hat simple Bill, beings { U R } just a Simple man.

    Well then I guess you get to join us, your comprehensive on spelling will convince them that you are indeed a delusional idiot with stupidity… Js

  28. How proud and vain of you to even consider thinking that we give a damn what you think or say devil…

  29. TruePatriot43 | 03/24/2015 at 8:32 PM |

    I keep praying something like this could not be true…..But I watch Obama’s actions and I fear it is coming. Martial law before the elections and he stays in power indefinitely…..look it up !

  30. devilkat | 03/24/2015 at 5:44 PM |

    If only this were true , could get rid of you delusional idiots. You really should be removed from the gene pool, your stuidity and complete mental inferiority are contaminating the human race.

  31. TruePatriot | 03/23/2015 at 10:29 PM |

    They will have to use a foreign invading force to pull this off, I wouldn’t be surprised though if OBAMA tried something like this to try and turn forces against civilians. If they do this it won’t end well for any side…

  32. dilligaf421 | 03/23/2015 at 6:48 AM |

    Any military personnel that will fire upon a US citizen on orders from obama the muslim is no longer off limits as far as i’m concerned.

  33. Shawn Barrett | 03/22/2015 at 11:09 PM |

    Agreed, but when tyranny becomes the law, resistance becomes duty.

  34. Douglas Sands | 03/22/2015 at 10:26 PM |

    they are not our own people as you call them. they are illegals ,drug dealers, scum of the earth . killers rapist child kidnapers to sell accost the boarder. this type of help will be great here in the USA instead of helping other countries for nothing to gain. if obumba keeps his nose out of it an the right people are running it with out fighting with each other to see who is the best group. it has to be well organized . mistakes are going to be made, but that is part of training. the BS of training to be POW’S is a waste of time an money.lots of BS MONEY jobs are going to be taken an that’s where our own citizens with calm brains have to look fore. I wish I could be there . groups like former vets from nam should beable to stand by to help.

  35. wildman | 03/22/2015 at 4:42 AM |

    just another step closer to martial law which I really don’t think ovomit and his tards want

  36. Pelly Hardin | 03/22/2015 at 12:27 AM |

    Thats why they r replacing our troops with other nationality’s he has pink slip so many of American soldiers and top Brass..

  37. ShootsAlongWay | 03/21/2015 at 8:36 PM |

    I sure hope you’re right. I’d hate to have to shoot an American Soldier, but I wouldn’t hesitate to, if they pulled this type of shit in my town.

  38. Donald Nelson | 03/21/2015 at 7:25 PM |

    Shit heads feel free to try it, but remember, the largest armed force on earth is the US population.

  39. Shawn Barrett | 03/21/2015 at 5:45 PM |

    Plus, military estimates put over 70% of the military deserting if told to disarm the public. MIlitary veterans under 60 are the larger than all the military and LEO in the US. Guns behind every blade of grass, although no Japanese Admiral ever said it.

  40. Shawn Barrett | 03/21/2015 at 5:42 PM |

    1033 Had nothing to do with NDAA, been around for decades. I remember a small town I lived in getting patrol rifles in the 90s. At least get your paranoia right.

  41. Denis C. Flaherty | 03/21/2015 at 2:06 PM |

    It blows my mind that our troops would follow HIS orders and face-off against their own citizens.

  42. Glynda Hayes-Abraham | 03/21/2015 at 4:10 AM |

    This is outrageous but Biblical. Obama will meet the King Jesus faster than he anticipates.
