This summer the U.S. government will begin an unprecedented joint military exercise involving several states and tens of thousands of participants ranging from special operations groups to volunteer citizens.
The official purpose of the exercise, dubbed Operation Jade Helm 15, according to the military is to prepare American soldiers and special operations teams for emerging foreign threats. But investigations by independent media outlets suggest it is much more than a standard “training exercise.”
Involving as many as 10 states, the operation reportedly identifies several hostile areas around the United States, including Texas and Utah and aims to have the military prepared to “master the human domain” by utilizing citizen reports and surveillance to accomplish their mission. In other words, as Dave Hodges recently noted, they want to engender trust in order to control “the totality of the physical, cultural, and social environments that influence human behavior.”
And though spokespeople for the U.S. government insist the exercise is strictly for training our military to protect our national interests in foreign theaters and has nothing to do with domestic deployment of military personnel, some details suggest that the Jade Helm 15 operation will include strategies for identifying and rounding up dissidents and subversives.
To add further fuel to the fire EKS Group LLC., a Federal contractor, is now seeking Department of Defense role players who will be tasked with what appears to be exercises that simulate the forced detention and relocation of American citizens.
According to the job posting, the Department of Defense is seeking individuals “to play a vital role in assisting with this security related training.”
The job description itself, says Dave Hodges, is a clear indicator that the Jade Helm 15 operation has been designed as an exercise for a future implementation of martial law, wherein the government will declare a national emergency and lock-down the entire country, complete with the round up and relocation of those deemed to be hostile threats to our national security.
Why else would the job qualifications require applicants to have the ability to walk up to 18 miles per day in blistering heat and be transported in a car for up to 12 hours at a time?

As The Common Sense Show notes, one can’t help but think that these surveillance role players have been tasked with simulating what appears to be mass relocations that involve long car drives or 18 hour walks that bring to mind images of prisoner death marches from the 20th century.
