There has been a lot of news and concern about the U.S. Military exercise called Jade Helm 15 coming later this year in many U.S. states. Now Congressman Louis Gohmert has formally warned the Pentagon against conducting exercises that practice having Federal Force fighting certain states.
U.S. Special Operations Command is preparing to launch a five-month, multi-state exercise across private and public land to prepare Army special forces for threats anywhere in the world. Or at least that’s what the Pentagon would want you to believe. Officials and citizens in Texas, one of the states involved, see something potentially more nefarious in the exercise, dubbed Jade Helm 15. And now Rep. Louie Gohmert is joining them.
“Over the past few weeks, my office has been inundated with calls referring to the Jade Helm 15 military exercise scheduled to take place between July 15 and September 15, 2015,” Gohmert said in a Tuesday statement. “This military practice has some concerned that the U.S. Army is preparing for modern-day martial law. Certainly, I can understand these concerns.”
“When leaders within the current administration believe that major threats to the country include those who support the Constitution, are military veterans, or even ‘cling to guns or religion,’ patriotic Americans have reason to be concerned,” Gohmert wrote.
The congressman took particular issue with the layout and labels of the Pentagon map for the exercise. “Once I observed the map depicting ‘hostile,’ ‘permissive,’ and ‘uncertain’ states and locations, I was rather appalled that the hostile areas amazingly have a Republican majority, ‘cling to their guns and religion,’ and believe in the sanctity of the United States Constitution.” Gohmert called on the Pentagon to change the map, the names on the map, and said “the tone of the exercise needs to be completely revamped so the federal government is not intentionally practicing war against its own states.”

The second gunman suspected in the attack on a free speech event in Garland, Texas, has been identified as Nadir Soofi, the roommate of the previously identified attacker Elton Simpson, according to several reports. Both men reportedly lived together in Phoenix.
While Simpson was reportedly known by the FBI and convicted in 2010 for lying to authorities about plans to travel to Africa, Soofi was apparently not under surveillance by law enforcement or widely known.
Both Simpson and Soofi were both shot and killed after they allegedly opened fire outside a Prophet Muhammad art exhibit cartoon contest in Texas. The stated purpose of the event was to promote free speech.
Arizona lawyer Kristina Sitton, who previously represented Simpson, told the Associated Press that the man was a devout Muslim and respectful of the legal process. She said he had converted to Islam as a young man.
Federal law enforcement officials reportedly searched Simpson’s property in Phoenix on Monday as well as vehicles at the location.
As previously reported by TheBlaze, it was speculated that Simpson sent out a cryptic tweet before allegedly attempting to carry out the attack in Garland.
Reporters told to disable electronics by police before “electronic pulses”

Several reporters at the scene of Sunday’s terror attack in Garland, Texas, stated that police used an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) device when examining the suspected shooters’ vehicle for explosives.
According to NBC 5’s Kevin Cokely, an explosion sound was heard from the suspects’ vehicle shortly after the police bomb squad told media personnel to disable all electronics.
“Garland police had warned of electronic magnetic pulse…” Cokely said on Twitter.
Following the explosion sound, NBC 5’s Jocelyn Lockwood, who captured the event on film, said that police refused to comment on the sound’s origin.
A separate reporter, Fox 4’s Zahid Arab, told Twitter followers that police had warned of further “electronic pulses” after the initial explosion.
Technology experts, including the ACLU’s Christopher Soghoian, debated on social media over whether Garland police or federal agents were responsible for the device.
Police later stated that no explosives were found in the vehicle but that several suspicious items were detonated. Since the incident, no comment has been made by law enforcement on the reported EMP device.
Infowars was unable to reach the Garland Police Department’s public and media relations representative for clarification at the time of publishing.
About 1,000 expected to be in attendance
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A pair of protests Friday night will put a voice to concerns over law enforcement issues in North Texas. However, with about 1,000 people expected to be in attendance, the demonstrations bring up questions about safety.
Mothers Against Police Brutality said that this will be a peaceful protest. And they plan on having their own security on hand to make sure that it stays that way.
In the past, outside groups have shown up to their protests and taken them onto North Texas freeways. Hopefully, that will not happen on Friday night.
The protest in Dallas is a call for justice, similar to those seen in New York, Baltimore and other cities across the nation.
Freddie Gray suffered a severed spinal cord and died in police custody in Baltimore last week. The organizers of Friday night’s rally said that there are cases here in Dallas involving police killings that need the same kind of attention. Their rally begins at 5:00 p.m. at the Frank Crowley Courts Building.
Meanwhile, at the same time, protesters will meet at Dallas City Hall for a second rally. They are against legislation that would let police officers question people about their immigration status during traffic stops. They are also begging Gov. Greg Abbott to drop his lawsuit against President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration, which would shield millions of people living in the United States illegally from deportation.
When the separate rallies are over, they will meet up at the Belo Gardens for one combined show of support. While the thread of law enforcement unites them, organizers from the two groups said that the overall message is about dignity.

The absurdity of the Midland Walmart story in which the store had to be closed because of plumbing issues is amazing. In Midland, the Walmart is closed and we see a plethora of military activity at the store. Since when did the military service Walmart plumbing? Yet, there are some Americans who still believe this cover story. All roads related to Jade Helm lead to Midland, Texas. Midland is at the heart of Jade Helm. If Jade Helm could be turned back in Midland, the globalists would have to find another means to subjugate the American people.
“I Don’t Know Nuthin”
In the past several days, I have talked to six people from both Midland and Odessa, Texas. Some of these people form the economic backbone of the area, and they have figured out what is coming. I know there have been multiple private conversations about what to do about the growing Obama administration cancer growing right in their backyard among local business leaders. In Midland, the number one Walmart, with regard to per capita spending in America, is suddenly closed, without warning, fires its employees and the former store is now a hotbed of reconstruction and military activity, while the site is crawling with military and DHS personnel and vehicles. Where is the outrage? From local business leaders, I have been able to ascertain that the cover story regarding Walmart’s faulty plumbing being the reason for the closure is a complete fabrication. The Midland, TX Walmart had its plumbing updated six months prior to the closure of the store and no new plumbing permits have been obtained. Unfortunately, every person I have spoken to is afraid to put their name on what they know to be true. They want to tell their story, but they are afraid of any consequences associated with standing up, exposing tyranny and doing the right thing. In this time of extreme crisis, we do not have the time to play games. If one is not willing to speak out and be accountable for their statements, then do not masquerade as a freedom fighter. Since Saturday morning, I have spoken with five men and one woman and each one expressed fear and concern that they and their family would be victimized if they spoke out and they told what they knew. I am looking for people with courage in Midland who are outraged by this takeover and are willing to investigate and go on the record. To the people of Midland, Texas, your city has been taken over by the Obama administration. Some of you are feeling the consequences of the takeover, the rest of you will soon feel the consequences of the takeover. Despite the fact that you will soon live in modern day Auschwitz, you remain relatively silent. Many of your people are being used to retrofit this Walmart, the economy has negatively been impacted by the closure of the Walmart, the military vehicles are at the closed Walmart for all to see and yet, the business and political leaders of your community “don’t know nuthin”. Right now, today, there should be people in the streets protesting the military takeover of Walmart in Midland. Instead, we have a couple of people with video cameras attempting to covertly get the word out about the military invasion that has come to their town.
What We Know
Look at the following video it is shaky and unprofessionally produced, however, it shows the world what is going on in Midland where evil is triumphant because good men and women are saying nothing.
In the following video, please fast forward to the 22 minute mark, which is a must watch. At the 22 minute mark, Pete Santilli reports on his talk show how he has inside information that Walmart, Facebook and the DHS, (Editor’s Note: Pete has the documentation to support his position), have partnered to install facial recognition software in every Walmart because at some point in time, 85% of all Americans go into a Walmart. (Pete’s report can be accessed at the 22 minute mark on the tape). In the same Santilli presentation, he played an ABC report which stated that plumbing permits for the closed Walmarts were not acquired and that includes the Walmart in Midland, TX. Coincidentally, the following video also references the great work done by Deborah Tavares on Future Strategic Issues/Future Warfare (Circa 2025). I say coincidentally, because Deborah was a guest on my show last night and she spoke of these revelations. On page 101 of the report, available at Deborah’s site, there is a reference to the fact when we take vaccinations, we automatically have a bio-identifier implanted in our system that can be scanned to identify where we are at any given time. I have learned from my sources, that these markers are not totally reliable because they can biodegrade over time. Yet, the intention is clear, DHS is attempting to tag us before they bag us.
Walmart Is Part of the Purple Command Structure
My sources tell me that the Walmart Supercenters are going to be used as a multi-purpose facility. The Walmarts that are open will indeed be used to identify everyone who enters their store and the information will be instantly relayed to DHS. Therefore, if you are a person on the Red List, you better stay out of Walmart. In fact, all Americans should be encouraged to stay out of all Walmarts. It is not just Walmart that Red Listed people must worry about. The problem for any people who have been “Red Listed” is that they do not know how many other public venues will have the same capacity for facial recognition. Four years ago, when I was investigating Intellistreets technology which included plans for DHS to install facial recognition software in every traffic camera and light pole, I learned that most traffic cameras are already tied into the NSA and DHS database with facial recognition. There can only be one reason to possess this technology and that is to identify and to eliminate political enemies of the state. The military term “Purple Command” means that a facility has a joint use function. For example a military base may play home to the Marines and the Air Force. This is looked at as a cost-savings measure. However, it is also a means to unify the military under one strategic command in a Gestapo type of approach that will be needed to control the military and its personnel in the coming purge. The Purple Command structure of Walmart, at this point, appears to be two-fold. The Midland Walmart as well as the other closed Walmarts, as I have identified before, have been converted into a military logistics operation. It is clear that tunnels are connecting the Walmart under the guise of plumbing supplies. Additionally, an inordinate amount Walmarts are located near railroad tracks and this certainly helps to confirm this intention. The question that is not being answered in these Walmart conversions is what is the Obama administration preparing for? I will address that issue in the conclusion of this article. Back to Midland for a moment, I was told by two people that there is construction going on inside the Walmart in which many of the product shelves have been replaced by much bigger and much more sturdy shelves capable of sleeping two at a time. This was their words not mine. This speaks to a second purpose for this Walmart and that would be slave labor. Does this sound far-fetched? It does not when one considers Executive Order 13603, issued by Obama, which calls for “unpaid consultants” to do the work assigned to them by the Department of Labor in Section 502. Again, the credibility of this part of the report is compromised because both parties were too afraid to provide any identifying information. My media colleague, Paul Martin has been told EXACTLY the same story and Paul is not afraid to use his real name. People of Midland, your community has been invaded by the Obama administration and you need to put eyes on this Walmart and begin to release credible accounts that can verified. You will never know if you could turn this back with enough attention unless you try.
All Jade Helm roads to lead to Midland. In this former Walmart lies the clues which tells us where the Jade Helm crisis is headed. The latter development, listed above, with the notation of the installation of sleeping facilities speaks to the fact that we are looking at the second (purple) purpose of the Walmart takeover and that is most frightening of all. The closed Walmarts will be used as work camps for the receipt and distribution of military hardware. This explains all of the military vehicle activity we see at the Midland Walmart. What are these Walmart centers and the 133 closed Target centers in Canada preparing for? Who are the combatants going to be? That will be the topic of tomorrow’s article.

“Jade Helm 15 looks more like an exercise in the imposition of martial law”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott told state troopers to monitor a US military training exercise, codenamed Jade Helm 15, after locals showed concern that the looming maneuvers actually look more like an “exercise in the imposition of martial law.”
The large-scale operation involves elite teams from four branches of the military, including the SEALs and Green Berets, and is set to kick off in seven states from July 15 to September 15. Up to 1,200 special operations personnel will be involved. The troops will be participating in what has been called Realistic Military Training in towns in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas and Utah. For the purposes of the training, Texas, Utah and part of southern California have been labeled as “hostile” territory, a description that a number of residents found troublesome.
Army Special Operation Command spokesman Mark Lastoria earlier attempted to allay concerns by saying the training is an opportunity to practice “covert warfare tactics and martial law.”
At the same time, Army Lieutenant Colonel Mark Lastoria stated that Jade Helm is meant “to assist our Special Operations soldiers and leadership in refining the skills needed against an ever changing foreign threat.”
According to military officials, armed forces will train in areas chosen because of similarities to overseas combat areas. Republican Governor Abbott says Texas has been assured that no residents or their property are at risk.
According to officials, troops will be operating undercover among civilians, improving their skills to blend in with the crowd. Soldiers will also have to stage an escape from ‘hostile’ territory during the training.
Earlier this week, Lastoria answered questions from a crowd of 150 people at a special meeting of the Bastrop County Commissioners Court. According to a report in the Austin American-Statesman, Lastoria was asked whether Jade Helm 15 will involve bringing foreign fighters from the Islamic State to Texas, whether US troops will confiscate Texans’ guns and whether the Army intends to implement martial law through the exercise. The colonel repeated that Jade Helm 15 is nothing more than a routine exercise.
“The terrain is very challenging and it’s going to make our soldiers sweat — and sweating in peacetime is what we want because it’s going to reduce the bleeding in wartime,” Lastoria said, according to the Austin American-Statesman.
Bob Wells from Bastrop wrapped up after the meeting, saying: “It’s the same thing that happened in Nazi Germany: You get the people used to the troops on the street, the appearance of uniformed troops and the militarization of the police…They’re gathering intelligence. That’s what they’re doing. And they’re moving logistics in place for martial law. That’s my feeling.”
“I hope I’m a ‘conspiracy theorist’,” he added.
