Urban Warfare Exercises No Surprise
This past week residents in the LA downtown area were alarmed at what appeared to be military training exercises up close:
“Having started on Monday, the US Army continues its war drills across the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area through Saturday with the goal of enhancing Army Special Forces skills by “operating in urban environments”, Army Special Operations Command said in a statement.
“Residents around Los Angeles may hear sounds associated with the field training exercise, including helicopters and weapon simulations, according to the statement.
“The local terrain and training facilities in Los Angeles provide the Army with unique locations and simulates urban environments the service members may encounter when deployed overseas,” the Army told CBS.
“Downtown Los Angeles residents were shocked Monday night when a fleet of Boeing A/MH-6M Little Bird and Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters swooped in around them.”
Really? Urban warfare overseas? Why would we be once again sticking our military in countries where we have no business conducting urban warfare or invasions? And, pray tell, what urban area in what country are they training for that looks like downtown LA? Kabul, Afghanistan or Mosul, Iraq?
Back in 2015 the Army conducted one of their Homeland Security exercises called Jade Helm. All hell broke loose on the Internet with some like Dave Hodges who runs a web site called The Commonsense Show proclaiming this was it, martial law was on the horizon! Man your bunkers! It got so bad, even our governor here in Texas got gob smacked and fell for the junk on the Internet – all according to “my highly-placed sources tell me” come-on.
We May Finally Know What JADE HELM Has Stood For All Along – That the name might be an acronym is only part of what’s odd about this year’s iteration of the controversial special operations training exercise.
“Two years after the U.S. Special Operations Command’s (SOCOM) Jade Helm training exercise inflamed conspiracy theorists, prompted Texas to order its state guard to monitor federal troops, and otherwise became a national news story, the latest iteration of the event has come and gone with little acknowledgement of any kind from the U.S. government or the public.”
I do encourage you to read that column – especially if you’re one of those who got sucked in by all the hype. The internal link about inflamed conspiracy theorists should also be read as it also explains a great deal about military training exercises.
I was so flabbergasted over all the hype regarding Jade Helm I did a piece on it: Jade Helm Will Be In My Town Next Week – Do take the time to read it as a rebuttal to the hysteria pumped by talk show hosts and web sites:
“On April 30, 2015, Dave Hodges, posted this: Closed Walmarts To Be Guerilla Warfare Staging Areas in Response to Invasion
“There can be no doubt that the internal events at Walmart holds the key to the end game of Jade Helm operations. Jade Helm and Walmart are inextricably linked and the existing evidence suggests one of two possible end game probabilities for Jade Helm.
“1. Converted Walmart stores will be processing centers for FEMA camp political prisoners.
“2. Some Walmarts will be used as supply and staging centers for an internal conflict within the United States
“In the past four weeks, I have watched over 100 videos on Jade Helm and Walmart. I have performed what researchers call a qualitative, or a descriptive analysis of the available facts. In performing this task, I have looked for patterns among the recent Walmart closings because it is clear that the closings coincide with Jade Helm. This constitutes Phase One of the analysis. In Phase Two, the findings from phase one are correlated to known or strongly suspected events connected to Jade Helm and/or other areas of concern related to national security. Subsequently, this kind of descriptive analysis can yield strong clues as to the true intent of where Jade Helm is headed and what the Walmart role consistes of in conjunction with Jade Helm.”
I can tell you nothing happened here in my town during the exercises except quite a bit of revenue for local businesses. No invasion by the UN or FEMA doing round-ups that was being hawked with screeching and dire warnings.
I’ve been inside the Midland, TX Wal Mart several times. It was closed for months. Another old unit that needed fixing just like the Walmart here in my town that needs an overhaul. Not because I needed to buy anything but because I was looking. I saw NOTHING that would support that WalMart as being set up for conversion to a FEMA processing center.
There was also a Jade Helm 2017 exercise. Funny thing I didn’t see all the dire warnings about that one plastered all over the Internet.
First of all, I would venture to say that the majority of individuals out there screeching about martial law being imposed at the drop of a pin have ZERO understanding of the subject matter. I did not know the true meaning of martial law or even if it’s legal until I read Dr. Edwin Vieira’s constitutional analysis:
I highly recommend everyone read that column and this one because if we the people are ever going to defeat our domestic enemies, WE ALL must understand what things like martial law actually means or doesn’t:
“My latest book—By Tyranny Out of Necessity: The Bastardy of “Martial Law”—is now available through Amazon. Its title encapsulates its theme: namely, that “martial law” (as most Americans conceive of it) is a wholly illegitimate concept which appeals to some supposed, but false, “necessity” in order to establish a very real tyranny.
“Some might say that, in light of the present parlous condition of the Republic, and especially the pathetic indifference of average Americans to this sorry state of affairs, writing such a book will prove to be a fool’s errand on my part—or perhaps a hopeless task quixotically undertaken for the benefit of fools. Obviously, I disagree. I consider the subject-matter of this book to be vital to this country’s survival.
“To be sure, By Tyranny Out of Necessity is not the most important book which I have written on the general subject of the place of the Militia in America’s constitutional edifice. The others—Constitutional “Homeland Security”, Volume One, The Nation in Arms; Constitutional “Homeland Security”, Volume Two, The Sword and Sovereignty; Thirteen Words; and Three Rights—were more significant in principle, because if patriots in sufficient numbers had paid attention to the message those works conveyed, and had taken action upon it, the danger of “martial law” would already be well on the way to being obviated.
“As of now, however, By Tyranny Out of Necessity is the most important of my books in practice, precisely because most Americans have not been paying attention—not so much to my works, but to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution upon which those works are based. Now, people are becoming increasingly worried about the imposition of “martial law” in the course of some jury-rigged “national emergency”.
“They are being told by “the Powers That Be” that “martial law” is legitimate, and that sufficient steps are being taken to prepare for it—especially in the para-militarization of State and Local “law-enforcement” and “emergency-management” agencies. Through the media, they have witnessed an example of the implementation of “martial law”, on a small yet highly organized scale, in Watertown, Massachusetts, hard upon the bombing of the 2013 Boston Marathon.
“Many of them have had personal experiences with the bestiality of “martial law” in the myriad episodes of unpunished “police brutality” which take place almost every day throughout this country. Yet, overall, most Americans have no idea whether “martial law” is even lawful or not—but apparently are resigned to the belief that nothing can be done to stop it from being imposed upon them.”
Edwin was kind enough to send me a copy of By Tyranny Out of Necessity: The Bastardy of “Martial Law” which I personally gave to our Sheriff; living in a small town does have advantages. I purchased another copy for myself and read it cover to cover. Now I understand what I did not know.
As far as these current urban warfare exercises, I happen to believe things are so bad in this country and getting worse by the day it’s very possible we’ll see large-scale outbreaks of violence.
We KNOW for a fact high power weapons are being smuggled into this country while delusional Nancy Pelosi wails it’s inhumane to lock down our border:
Illegal Aliens Caught near Border with ‘Assault-Style Firearms,’ Says Border Patrol, April 2018
Another imbecile in a skirt: New Mexico governor withdraws most National Guard troops from border, Feb. 6, 2019
SANTA FE, N.M. – “New Mexico’s governor, arguing there is not an “overwhelming national security crisis,” withdrew the majority of National Guard troops deployed at the state’s southern border Tuesday.
“Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s announcement came shortly before the start of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.
“Lujan Grisham, a Democrat, also announced she would send more help to Hidalgo County — one of the state’s three border counties — to assist with humanitarian needs.”
Not an overwhelming national security crisis? How STUPID are the voters of New Mexico to put yet another witless politician in office just because she’s a Latino and has female plumbing? As for humanitarian needs, illegal aliens are the ones who have created this problem and the only way to stop it is with walls and cutting off all public welfare which no member of Congress is interested in doing despite my best efforts.
READ this column over lunch or morning coffee: Trump: Put The Army And Marines On OUR Border NOW – No national security crisis, Gov. Lujan Grisham? She’s a damn fool and because she’s a governor you can bet HER family is protected from the rapes and murders suffered upon Americans by illegal aliens.
Border rancher: ‘We’ve found prayer rugs out here. It’s unreal’, January 16, 2019 – That means Muslims who HAVE destroyed every country where they’ve gained a big foot hold.
I was down on the border in May 2006: My Visit to the Minutemen H.Q. in Arizona – “Despite the massive propaganda being spewed by “mainstream media,” including cable, electronic and print, naturalized Americans of Mexican or Latin American ancestry do NOT support what illegal aliens are doing – either by breaking the law and smuggling themselves into our country or with their massive, in-your-face marches throughout the country.
“Not a single person I interviewed in Tucson, El Paso and all places in between. They resent these criminals who have no intention of assimilating into the Western culture, who break the law to get across the border and those here to support “reconquista.”
Going back to the current military urban warfare training, the reason I’m not shocked or surprised is because of something I wrote back on Sept. 22, 2008:
“As we all saw with Katrina, the military was brought in and the inalienable rights of the American people were simply stomped on. In the same link above, I brought your attention to a look into the future regarding military control of the civilian population:
“The next real war we fight is likely to be on American soil. Our civilian-military face-off (November 30, 1997)
“One startling quote in this article is from Admiral Stanley Arthur, Commander of U.S. naval forces during the Gulf War, where he says, “Today the armed forces are no longer representative of the people they serve. More and more, enlisted as well as officers are beginning to feel they are special, better than the society they serve.”
“When you turn to page two of this story, the headlines read, “Bill of Rights no obstacle for the Corps.” Another disturbing quote jumps out at you, “Because of the rising potential for civil disobedience within the inner cities it is ‘inevitable’ the U.S. military will be employed more often within American borders.”… Why the concern that there is a potential for civil disobedience by Americans? Where did this come from? …..
“Further into this shocking story: “…Major Reeves notes, when faced with violating doctrine or violating the law, some Marines chose the latter course and detained suspects and conducted warrant less searches. Indeed, with characteristic Marine Corps bluntness, the major states that, “in interviews with Marine officers involved in domestic peacekeeping missions with officers responsible for articulating the Marine Corps’ policy on domestic peacekeeping, it became apparent to the author that Marines took whatever action was necessary. At times, these actions required Marines to violate U.S. law.
“Similarly, Marine Capt. Guy Miner reported in the Gazette that Marine intelligence units were initially worried by the need to collect intelligence on U.S. citizens, which would violate a 1981 Executive Order, but that “this inhibition was quickly overcome….” And to chill you even further, “To enable the Marines to execute these new domestic missions in the same way that they do abroad, Major Reeves calls for major alternations in U.S. laws. “Experience from the Los Angeles riots,” he warns, “demonstrated the need to grant U.S. Marine forces the legal right to detain vehicles and suspects, conduct arrests, searches and seizures in order to accomplish the peacekeeping mission.”
“Go ahead, print out the newspaper and read it. If this doesn’t give you the daytime version of pavor nocturnus, then you don’t grasp the severity of the problem. We are seeing more and more domestic spying on Americans, no knock searches killing innocent people, warrant less searches on flimsy probable cause and ‘civilian check points’ on our roads and highways. The misnamed ‘Patriot Act’ continues to be abused by federal dragoons. This is NOT the America thousands spilled their blood for on the battle fields during the Revolutionary War.”
I believe, while touted as “the US Army continues its war drills across the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area through Saturday with the goal of enhancing Army Special Forces skills by “operating in urban environments at Homeland Security exercises”, the powers that be do expect at some time major outbreaks of what one might call civil war.
Between the growing population of Muslims who should never have been allowed in this country (America needs to truly understand Islam’s mission of world domination) to militant Mexicans who have entered illegally to ‘re-conquer’ the border states to domestic terrorist operations like ANTIFA, somewhere down the line the first shots are going to be fired. Not to mention vicious MS-13 gangs and drug cartels moving in along the border, there is a growing threat to OUR security.
One can only pray it doesn’t happen but with these factions and their deep-rooted hatred of all that is America, something will give and that’s why I believe these urban warfare exercises put on by Homeland Security are taking place.
Unless, and I pray NOT, President Trump once again listens to the toxic advice being given to him, we decide to stick our military might into Venezuela for some urban warfare. God, I hope that doesn’t happen.
In the meantime, how many more Americans were robbed, raped or murdered during the government shut down while Pelosi was vacationing in Hawaii ($900 bux a night for her room)? The shut-down ended January 23rd.
Illegal alien arrested for ‘4 homicides’ in U.S., January 21, 2019
“Guzman is being held for suspicion of burglary, possession of stolen property and immigration law violations. He was arrested on Saturday. “At this stage in the investigation, we feel confident we have the evidence that will link him to all four homicides,” the sheriff said in a statement.
“Two women, Connie Koontz, 56, and Sophia Renken, 74, were killed in their homes earlier this month in Gardnerville, some 50 miles from Reno. The report said the victims were found Jan. 10 and Jan. 13.
“On Jan. 15, “authorities began investigating two killings in Reno after Gerald David, 81, and Sharon David, 80, were found dead in their South Reno home,” the report said.
“Given the similarities between all four killings, the Federal Bureau of Investigation began aiding in the probe last week, the Associated Press reported. All of the killings relied on a firearm, appeared to target elderly victims and at least two involved property stolen from the homes,” the Independent said.”
While Demorats were vacationing during the shut-down: 18-Year-Old Illegal Immigrant from Jamaica Murders 12-Year-Old Boy in Drive-By Shooting
Murder suspect was deported from U.S. at least 8 times – Mexican illegal, Washington
Attempted Murder Convict, Multiple DUI Offender Among 150 Arrested By ICE (LA is an illegal ‘sanctuary city’) “About 40 percent of those arrested in the sweep – which took place between Sunday and Tuesday – had previously been released by local law enforcement agencies despite ICE detainers asking arresting agencies to notify immigration officers prior to the suspect’s release from custody, according to the ICE officials. Nearly all arrestees had prior criminal convictions, authorities said.”
The blood of those victims drips from the hands of the Democratic/Communist Party USA and RINOs in the U.S. Senate who support open borders for their big money donors who want cheap labor. More spilled blood of Americans and ruined families.

Illegals are everywhere in this country and one of the bargaining chips for the despicable Demorats is to loosen ‘catch and release’ instead of strengthen it. Domestic violence down in El Salvador is NOT grounds for asylum and was never meant to be. Illegals get their court date, skip, get lost and then kill Americans while drunk on our roads or simply murder them.
Right now, today, call the WH and your U.S. Senators office, Republican and Demorat alike (especially Demorats because they think they outnumber us right now but they don’t) and tell them NO amnesty, period. Build the damn walls along high invasion spots.

More diseased, illiterate freeloaders. Minors should blame their parents for smuggling them across the border in violation of OUR immigration laws.
