On the very first day of Jade Helm, there were no mass arrests, no direct military takeover, and Texas gun owners did not have their guns confiscated by the US military as some feared. Jade Helm 15 in that respect quite frankly, has been blown way out of proportion. Many large outlets that were once respected and seen as legitimate alternative/independent news site’s, lost credibility in the handling of information over Jade Helm. Justin King puts this bluntly in a recent article where he explains at the very least, Jade Helm was and is being used to make independent media “look like idiots.” This is due to the fact that much of the attention brought to JH-15 which was overwhelmingly negative, was over the unjustified fear of it bringing in Martial Law.
To that end I agree to some extent, as I have said many times. While certain websites and outlets were fear mongering about JH-15 ushering in Martial Law, some chose to stay silent while I made several attempts to quell the unjustified claims. If you choose to ignore the many reasons why JH-15 was not “for” Martial Law, even a rudimentary understanding of history would allow you to understand the United States has been under Martial Rule since the Civil War.
The corrupt and criminal government would gain absolutely nothing from locking down a country that is still producing for “their” interests, and repeatedly keeping “them” in power. It would be like taking a $1 million scratch-off winner and ripping it in half. Sadly, even with some of the more suppressed information harder to find, it is still out there waiting to be rediscovered. (more…)
