Video: Walmart ‘Plumbing’ Issue Related To DHS Underground Tunnel Network: “This Is A Very Real Situation”

This Snippet below is from 2010. You can see where they announce use of Hundreds of Walmarts Across the Country:

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the unusual alliance Monday on the department’s blog and in a promotional video posted to YouTube.

“Homeland security starts with hometown security, and each of us plays a critical role in keeping our country and communities safe,” she said. “This partnership will help millions of shoppers across the nation identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities.”

Should the war on terror be fought in the aisles of Wal-Mart stores?

At least 200 Wal-Mart stores will roll out security announcements within 24 hours, Wal-Mart spokesman Dan Fogleman said. By month’s end, 588 stores in 27 states will be participating in the program. A short video featuring Napolitano will appear on TV screens at select checkout lanes, asking Wal-Mart shoppers to contact local law enforcement to report suspicious activity.

There’s been much speculation about the recent closures of Walmart stores around the country. Walmart claims the closing of their stores, almost simultaneously in different cities, is a result of plumbing issues. But many employees and customers suspect that something else is going on, though no one, including store managers, has any idea what that might be.

Several theories have popped up, with some claiming that it is an economic issue and Walmart may have shut those stores down because of lackluster sales, but they don’t want to announce falling retail sales so as to avoid a hit to their stock price.

The outcome is that “while WMT (or MCD or GAP or Target) boosts the living standards of its employees by the smallest of fractions, it cripples the cost and wage structure of the entire ecosystem of vendors that feed into it, and what takes place is a veritable avalanche effect where a few cent increase for the lowest paid megacorp employees results in a tidal wave of layoffs for said megacorp’s vendors.”

If that doesn’t turn out to be enough in the face of an economy which isn’t really recovering and in which low-income shoppers are constrained by lackluster (and by that we mean nonexistent) wage growth, some sacrifices may have to be made. The problem is that laying people off and shuttering stores two months after a celebrated wage hike initiative doesn’t inspire much confidence and could turn into a PR issue, but one thing you could do is get creative, and while we’re not plumbers, we do find it curious that five geographically distinct WalMart stores have been closed in the past week for “ongoing plumbing issues that will require extensive repairs.”

Others have suggested that the closings may have something to do with upcoming military exercises and the possibility that the massive stores could be used as detention centers for American citizens.

In a report published in July 2014 on Intellihub.com, Shepard Ambellas outlined a plan by the Department of Defense and FEMA to use, “abandoned or unused department stores, shopping malls and warehouses as camps to accommodate the mass human influx from South America.”

Although FEMA has used a massive influx of immigrants as the reason for needing detention centers, their power to control the entire country in the event of a martial law scenario could easily lead them to use the centers for American citizens.

But a new theory brought forth by researcher and Youtube commentator Daboo777 suggests that Walmart might be working directly with the Department of Homeland Security and the so-called plumbing issues give them the pretext to bring in heavy machinery without having to explain the specific reasons for doing so with an overly curious public.

But what would this heavy machinery be for?

According to one theory, Walmart is working in conjunction with DHS to expand the government’s underground tunneling system and is integrating it with a larger national emergency response network designed to move supplies and people during a crisis:

In this information…in digging… we come to find out that there have been projects in different areas… not specifically tied to the exact Walmarts that have been closed down at the moment… but they can very well be going through a process connecting them to an underground network.

This is a very real situation… this was brought up years ago.. they were getting the funding and passing this… Homeland Security, in order to secure the safety of citizens in case of a nuclear, biological, chemical or other attack… this was a joint venture by the NSA, DoD, DHS…

These tunnels were to serve as conduits from specific places to rapidly move supplies or whatever they need between these locations.

Are there certain Walmarts out there that have underground connections? I wouldn’t doubt it one bit, especially now that we know DHS over the past decade has had this deal with not only Walmart, but other big sports stadiums and businesses.

While it may seem like a stretch of the imagination, is it possible that these abrupt closures have something to do with the Department of Homeland Security and the integration of private businesses with broader government emergency response plans?

INSIDE INFO: WalMart Knows Something Is Up; Why They Closed And How DHS Is Involved

Screen Shot 2015-04-17 at 4.09.53 PM

By now you have been informed about the numerous Walmart closing across the country. All sorts of speculations have risen including theories that they have been turned into FEMA camps, that they are closing due to Jade Helm, and many other reasons that can be found on the internet.

But what is really going on at these Walmart stores? Does anyone have inside information? We’ll if truth be told we won’t know for certain until the time comes, but in the meantime Pete Santilli has stumbled across some pretty impressive information that just might close the gap.

Here is the Youtube Commentary on the video:

Pete Santilli & Dani Mcpherson cover the news regarding the mysterious and sudden closure of 5 major Walmart Super Centers. In addition to the numerous reports in the mainstream and independent media, Pete adds some additional interesting information regarding WalMart’s relationship with the Department of Homeland Security dating back to Hurricane Katrina.

 

In this video Pete displays a picture of WalMart’s “EOC” (Emergency Operations Center), and comments about the EOC looking more like an NSA command center.

 

Pete’s family member (brother) worked directly for Walmart Corporate headquarters in Bentonville Arkansas, and informed Pete about WalMart’s relationship with the DHS. During Hurricane Katrina, the DHS coordinated heavily with Walmart since they have the resources to distribute disaster relief supplies. Since then, Walmart has also worked directly with the DHS by installing pinhole facial recognition cameras in their stores, scanning customers, and uploading/sharing the data with the Federal government.

Three Terrorist Plots Disrupted in Three Weeks: 66th Jihad Plot Proves Scope of Threat

Screen Shot 2015-04-17 at 11.41.55 AM

Will the islamophobia never end?

It’s interesting to see this piece on the Heritage Foundation site, as they have hardly been on the forefront of this issue, and they get some of it wrong, i.e., “lone-wolf.” There are no lone wolves in the global jihad army. Ted Kaczynski (the unibomber) was a lone wolf. All of these Muslims are united in purpose, belief and deed.

Their strategy for stopping terrorists before they strike is also wrong — absurd, even, i.e. “Emphasize community outreach.” Yes, that’ll work.

First and foremost, we must begin to speak candidly and openly about the jihadic doctrine in Islam. We must teach it in our schools and close mosques that are teaching, preaching and advancing jihad. We must marginalized the jihad narrative and educate the general population about the true nature of the threat and its root. Terror-tied Islamic groups implicated in the Holy Land Foundation trial must be prosecuted for treason.

Here is AFDI’s 18-point platform for defeating jihad.

Three Terrorist Plots Disrupted in Three Weeks: 66th Islamist Plot Reconfirms Scope of Threat

By David Inserra and Charles “Cully” Stimson, Heritage Foundation

On Friday, April 10, the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) in Topeka, Kansas, arrested John T. Booker Jr., as he prepared a car bomb for use against the nearby Fort Riley Army post. Booker, a 20-year-old U.S. citizen who goes by the name Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, expressed a desire to support the Islamic State by engaging in violent jihad here in the U.S.[1] Through the use of confidential informants, the FBI tracked Booker’s statements, plans, and actions, and arrested him before the public was in danger.

This homegrown, lone-wolf terrorist plot is the 66th known Islamist terrorist plot or attack aimed at the U.S. homeland since 9/11. It is also the third terrorist plot that has been foiled in the past 17 days, and the fourth in the past four months in which the plotter expressed support for ISIS. This surge in terrorism demonstrates yet again that the threat of terrorism continues to be very real, and that stopping terrorists before they attack is more critical than ever.

The Plot

John Booker was accepted into the Army in February 2014, but before he entered basic training the FBI became aware of multiple messages on Facebook in which he claimed to be excited to wage jihad. When interviewed, Booker “admitted that he enlisted in the United States Army with the intent to commit an insider attack against American soldiers like Major Nidal Hassan had done at Fort Hood, Texas.”[2] As a result, Booker was not allowed to join the military.

Starting in October of 2014, Booker began to communicate with an FBI confidential informant, and “repeatedly expressed to [the informant] his desire to engage in violent jihad on behalf of ISIL.”[3] Booker told the informant of his desire to go to the Middle East to join ISIS and kill Americans. As their conversations continued into November, Booker showed the informant videos of suicide bombers and spoke fondly of them. When the informant indicated that he had a cousin who could get Booker overseas, Booker excitedly accepted the offer and expressed a willingness to wage jihad in the U.S. to prove his dedication.[4]

In December 2014, Booker told the informant that he was thinking about attacking American soldiers at a nearby military base with a gun or a grenade, believing it justified by the Koran. Then in February, Booker referenced an ISIS propaganda video and expressed a desire to create a similar video. Booker thought that capturing and killing an American soldier in the U.S. would “scare this country” and warn it that “we will be coming after American soldiers in the streets…we will be picking them off one by one.”[5]

In March, the confidential informant introduced Booker to his “cousin,” another informant; the two told Booker that the cousin was a sheik planning terrorist attacks. Booker said that he had studied suicide bombing and wanted to build and detonate a truck bomb, following in the footsteps of an American called Jihad Joe, who died as a suicide bomber in Syria.[6] Booker then filmed a video threatening the U.S. and rented a storage unit for gathering bomb components.[7] By the end of March, Booker began purchasing bomb materials and gathering information on military targets, settling on Fort Riley. Booker provided the bomb components to the confidential informants, believing that they would provide the explosive material, which was actually inert. He then proclaimed that “I am going to do this Friday,” meaning April 10, and prepared a second threatening video. On April 10, the two informants drove to Fort Riley and, as Booker was arming the inert bomb, FBI agents arrested him.

Getting Serious About Terrorism

This plot is the 55th homegrown plot or attack, meaning that the terrorist was radicalized here in the U.S. It is also the 18th attack or plot aimed at U.S. military targets, the most common target of Islamist terrorists. Despite suggestions to the contrary in the media and in politics, the threat of ISIS, al-Qaeda, and other Islamist terrorists striking the U.S. has not diminished.

On June 1, a subsection of the Patriot Act—section 215 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Action, the telephone metadata collection program—is set to expire if not reauthorized. There is no way of knowing whether section 215 was used in this case. Congress is now set to debate section 215 before it expires. A healthy discussion of U.S. security and privacy is an important one that the U.S. should have. In this debate, it is important that Congress understand that intelligence programs are critical to preventing terrorists before they strike. Security alone is not enough since the U.S. cannot make every school, military base, mall, government building, or subway secure and hardened against every type of terrorist attack. Lawful intelligence, collected under proper warrants and court orders, is the best tool that the U.S. has in this battle against terrorists, who have increased the number of plots in recent months. The U.S. government has a responsibility to protect Americans from danger and respect their liberties—and it must do both well.

Stopping Terrorists Before They Strike

As the U.S. faces an apparently growing wave of terrorism, Congress should:

  • Maintain essential counterterrorism tools. Support for important investigative tools is essential to maintaining the security of the U.S. and combating terrorist threats. Legitimate government surveillance programs are also a vital component of U.S. national security and should be allowed to continue. The need for effective counterterrorism operations, however, does not relieve the government of its obligation to follow the law and respect individual privacy and liberty. In the American system, the government must do both equally well.
  • Emphasize community outreach. Federal grant funds should be used to create robust community outreach capabilities in higher-risk urban areas. These funds must not be used for political pork or so broadly that they no longer target those communities at greatest risk. Such capabilities are key to building trust within these communities, and if the United States is to be successful in thwarting lone-wolf terrorist attacks, it must place effective community outreach operations at the tip of the spear.
  • Prioritize local cyber capabilities. Building cyber-investigation capabilities in the higher-risk urban areas must become a primary focus of Department of Homeland Security grants. With so much terrorism-related activity occurring on the Internet, local law enforcement must have the constitutional ability to monitor and track violent extremist activity on the Web when reasonable suspicion exists to do so.

Vigilance is necessary to combat terrorism. With three terror plots disrupted in 17 days, the idea of vigilance should take on new meaning for Americans. The U.S. must have the strategies and tools it needs to stop terrorists before they attack again.

3 Ways ISIS Plans to Attack America – And Make Their Demonic Dreams a Reality

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 6.44.19 PM

Last weekend ISIS sent a big warning to Americans with a higher-production video than normal – “We Will Burn America.” They are making no mistake at making their plans known.

This video declares horrifically that America is facing another 9/11 type attack. This terrorist propaganda video warns that Americans will be targeted globally as well saying that there is “no safety for any American on the globe”.

The original 11 minute long video states that American safety is a mirage and glorifies the 9/11 attacks, the brutal murder of U.S. Journalist James Foley, Jordanian Air Force Pilot, Moaz al-Kasasbeh. It also mentions and promotes attacks like the ones on the Canadian Parliment, the Kosher grocery store in Paris, and recent global cyber attacks.

Terrorism and ISIS expert, Erick Stakelbeck, highlights three ways ISIS plans to attack America soon:

1. “City Wolves”

These are ISIS supporters that are currently in every state of the USA and are recruited via the internet or other means of propaganda according to the FBI.

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 6.45.58 PM

When the FBI Director says that ISIS boasts a network of supporters and sympathizers in every state of the union, it’s pretty clear that the barbarians are not just the gates: they’re inside them,” Stakelbeck writes.

2. The Returnees

This one is especially frustrating! Many of the U.S. citizens that left to go fight with ISIS in the Middle East have already returned home. These are battle hardened and experienced terrorists.

Obama’s oversight of U.S. Homeland Security is not focusing on your security. Bottom line.

3. The Border

Stakelbeck states:

One of the most chilling passages in my latest book, ‘ISIS Exposed’ came during my conversation with former CIA clandestine services officer Brian Fairchild.

Fairchild, who worked for the Agency for decades in hotspots around the world, told me of his concerns that an ISIS jihadist would smuggle a chemical or biological agent across America’s porous southern border and use it in a terror attack on an American city.

ISIS is not the “JV Team”, they already have a more vast network and experience than Al Qaeda. From a network and operational perspective, they make Al Qaeda the JV team.

ICE Director: Agents Risk ‘Termination’ For Not Enforcing Obama’s Immigration Policy

Concerned about the alleged “mistreatment” of Border Patrol and other Homeland Security employees who are trying to enforce immigration law, Republican senators want to know how may DHS employees have been disciplined over the last six years for refusing to comply with the Obama administration’s “prosecutorial discretion” policy. “We write regarding potential retaliation against Department of Homeland Security (DHS) personnel for upholding their oaths of office and faithfully discharging the duties of the offices in which they serve,” eight Republicans said in a March 31 letter sent to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson.

The Republicans pointed to President Obama’s Feb. 25 remarks in an MSNBC/Telemundo interview, in which the president said: “There may be individual (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) officials or Border Patrol who aren’t paying attention to our new directives. But they’re going to be answerable to the head of the Department of Homeland Security, because he’s been very clear about what our priorities should be….If somebody is working for ICE and there is a policy and they don’t follow the policy there are going to be consequences to it.” The Republicans say not only is Obama ignoring the plain language of the law by deferring deportation for millions of illegal immigrants, but he also seems to be threatening DHS personnel — including ICE officals and Border Patrol agents who are trying to perform their duties.

“Indeed, we are aware of multiple allegations of targeting and retaliation against DHS personnel who refuse to comply with this Administration’s willful disregard of our immigration laws,” the senators wrote. The senators specifically want to know how many DHS employees have been disciplined over the last six years, including through negative annual performance reviews, for refusing to comply with with department’s lenient immigration policies.

They also want to know how many lawsuits or complaints DHS employees have filed over the last six years relating to the prosecutorial discretion policy; the “general nature” of each lawsuit or complaint; and the ultimate outcome. The senators asked DHS to provide any guidance, written or oral, that it has given to DHS employees explaining how they will be disciplined for refusing to comply with the “administratively-created enforcement priorities.”

And finally, the letter asks DHS to “describe the authority upon which your Department will rely to penalize Department personnel for their failure to comply with

an unlawful and unconstitutional order.”

The letter is signed by Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.), chairman of the immigration subcommittee; along with Sens. David Vitter (La.), David Perdue (Ga.), Charles Grassley (Iowa), John Cornyn (Texas), Mike Lee (Utah), Ted Cruz (Texas) and Tom Tillis (N.C.).

‘Footprints in the sand’

In testimony before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on March 17, Chris Cabrera, a Border Patrol Agent in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, explained that a key metric in determining border security is the number of “got-aways.” And he said those numbers are being minimized. “If we know from footprints or video surveillance that 20 individuals crossed the border, we ultimately catch 10, obviously we know that we have 10 that got away. Now, when I first joined the Border Patrol, if I saw 20 sets of footprints in the sand, there was no argument. We were looking for 20 individuals.

But today, Cabrera said he must wait for a supervisor to “verify” the number of footprints. “Agents who repeatedly report groups larger than 20 face retribution,” Cabrera said. “Management will either take them out of the field and assign them to processing detainees at the station or assign them to a fixed position in low volume areas as punishment. Needless to say, agents got the message and now stay below this 20 person threshold, no matter the actual size of the group.” In their letter, the Republican senators asked DHS Secretary Johnson to submit the information they requested by the close of business on April 13.

MEXICAN AUTHORITIES SAY ISIS CAMPS LOCATED A FEW MILES FROM TEXAS AND NEW MEXICO

Terrorists allegedly smuggled into the U.S. with illegal drugs

by KURT NIMMO | INFOWARS.COM | APRIL 14, 2015

 The government watchdog group Judicial Watch cites Mexican government and military officials as saying the terror group ISIS, or Islamic State, has two camps in Mexico near the U.S. border.

One of the camps is reportedly located in Anapra, an area just west of Ciudad Juárez, and the other is near Puerto Palomas, a few miles from Columbus, New Mexico.

The Anapra area is dominated by the Vicente Carrillo Fuentes Cartel (Juárez Cartel), La Línea (the enforcement arm of the cartel) and the Barrio Azteca (a gang originally formed in the jails of El Paso), according to the Judicial Watch report.

A Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector told Judicial Watch human traffickers, known as coyotes, working for the Juárez Cartel are smuggling IS terrorists into the United States through the porous border between Acala and Fort Hancock, Texas.

Judicial Watch says this area was targeted because of understaffed municipal and county police forces and and large scale transit of illegal drugs from Mexico.

Mexican intelligence sources report

…that ISIS intends to exploit the railways and airport facilities in the vicinity of Santa Teresa, NM (a US port-of-entry). The sources also say that ISIS has “spotters” located in the East Potrillo Mountains of New Mexico (largely managed by the Bureau of Land Management) to assist with terrorist border crossing operations. ISIS is conducting reconnaissance of regional universities; the White Sands Missile Range; government facilities in Alamogordo, NM; Ft. Bliss; and the electrical power facilities near Anapra and Chaparral, NM.

In 2014, Midland County, Texas Sheriff Gary Painter said ISIS would cross the border and strike the United States.

In August, a former CIA officer, Mike Baker, told the Laura Ingraham Show ISIS works with the drug cartels.

Judicial Watch said in August ISIS was using Juárez as a staging area and planned to launch a car bomb attack against Fort Bliss, a U.S. Army base about fifteen minutes from the border.

In September, Infowars reporter Joe Biggs. traveled to the area and crossed the Rio Grande dressed in an ISIS terrorist outfit. The stunt demonstrated how easy it would be for terrorists to enter the country.

“The administration has also covered up, or at the very least downplayed, a serious epidemic of crime along the Mexican border even as heavily armed drug cartels have taken over portions of the region,” the group stated. “Judicial Watch has reported that the U.S. Border Patrol actually ordered officers to avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re ‘too dangerous’ and patrolling them could result in an ‘international incident’ of cross border shooting. In the meantime, who could forget the famous words of Obama’s first Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano; the southern border is ‘as secure as it has ever been.’”
