The Jade Helm thing

I was very much impressed by something that Peggy Noonan wrote in the Wall Street Journal in 2011. She said:

Here is the fact of the age: People believe nothing. They think everything is spin and lies. The minute a government says A is true, half the people on Earth know A is a lie. And when people believe nothing, as we know, they will believe anything. We faked the moon landing, there was a second gunman in Dallas, the World Trade Center was blown up in a U.S.-Zionist conspiracy, Hitler grew old in Argentina.

A military training exercise called “Jade Helm 15” scheduled for later this year provides fertile ground for those who will “believe anything” and generated quite a buzz last April that continues to the present. The multi-state exercise labels parts of the country as friendly or hostile territory. Conspiracy theorists say that the hostile areas will be subjected to martial law, guns confiscated, and patriots shipped off to FEMA camps or killed. (See my article: Stocking up on FEMA coffins.) A number of Wal-Marts in Texas, closed for renovations, are thought to be processing centers for the incarceration of patriots.dalek One report has Turkish pilots staging at a Wal-Mart and another that 5 Wal-Mart stores are connected by a network of underground tunnels, such as the one shown at right. A mass of ISIS terrorists are staged to cross the Mexican Border in an attack that will justify martial law. Even Texas Governor  Greg Abbott has ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor the training exercise.

As is the case with most conspiracy theories, it is believed that the “elite” are in on it, or at least know, the truth, as evidenced by the mass exodus of corporate CEO’s to secret bunkers.

asteroidNot all believe that Jade Helm 15 is just a simple power grab by President Obama. Some attributed a more apocalyptic backdrop. Some believe (as on this Facebook page dedicated to the topic) that there is an asteroid headed for the United States. This event will “require the implementation of martial law, massive ammunitions, FEMA camps, enormous amounts of medication, shelters etc.” In addition to martial law, this event is the perfect occasion for the second coming of Jesus.

The Birthers are, of course, ready to believe pretty much anything bad about President Obama, and commenters at Birther Report mention Jade Helm from time to time. Here are some samples, the most recent of which was yesterday:

This is an interesting article. And yes, Barry et al are doing everything in their power to create a police nation. I personally think that is what Jade Helm is all about. Once they get a police nation, they will enact martial law and confiscate those pesky guns.
I am praying that our freedoms shall be restored.

Theory: Are JADE HELM troops being positioned as a perimeter/support to the upcoming “ISIS Attacks?”
We’ve had troops all over the Mideast the past 14 years. Hint: OBL doesn’t exist. They’re doing SOMETHING over there. But it’s not chasing OBL or raiding his “villa.”

Interesting article by Hodges here. Two weeks ago Klayman’s Judicial Watch discovered that ISIS was in Juarez and the FBI went to Mexico. They didn’t go there to uncover any plots – just meeting with authorities and devising methodology to spin it. Further, DHS was cut-out of the meetings –

    BSE:

    Wooden shoe = sabot = sabotage.

    Workers back in (Norway?) would toss their wooden shoes (known as sabots) into wooden factory gears to “sabot-age” them.

    I don’t know if that wooden shoe is actually in the logo, but I’ve seen it included in the Jade Helm logo on blogs.

    In other words, DHS (Department of Homeland Sabotage) is preparing for 300 million Americans to go ballistic when they realize they’ve been systematically lied to and betrayed for decades.

    I have an interesting video and some think it may have to do with Jade Helm 15. In one case someone video UN Trucks, I saw this video for myself. What are the UN Truck doing here and for what.?

    Something is definitely going on. Many suspect this exercise may be for Martial Law.

    “America elected a brutal socialist Muslim Kenyan ineffective Harvard-schooled constitutional professor agitator warlock,” Stewart said sarcastically of Obama, pausing for effect. “So Texas, it appears you are on the verge of being taken over by [the Islamic State], or the United States of America. So you have a choice to make, and when you make it just remind yourself — and I never thought I’d be saying this — what would Rick Perry do?”

    Doc, when this all blows over would you – as someone who can actually post comments at BR – please mock Falcon mercilessly about his idiotic predictions of martial law and ISIS attacks?

    And while you’re at it, maybe remind him to check-six for that “missing” Malaysian airliner that’s been packed full of explosives. Falcon is a dangerous pistol-packer who knows too much, so he’s probably the terrorists’ primary target.

    Yeah, well this is probably Bird-boy sensing that Zullo will soon publicly be cut loose from Our Pie Hole, and never having had REAL EVIDENCE OF ANYTHING CRIMINAL, float away like a balloon released immediately upstream of the air intake of a jet engine.

    Rather than appearing to be one of the successfully scammed Birther masses left with the whole fund-raising tale of evidence and investigations in flames, Birdboy pretends to “know” as a privileged “insider”, that Our Pie Hole still has the smirking gun to ruin Obama with, since it’s unlikely that Our Pie Hole will want to publicly mention Birther business any time soon, with the mess he’s in.

    Zullo’s failure to report the universe-shattering evidence now becomes simple cowardice instead of an absence of evidence.

    Bird brain has obviously had to become a frequent flier at explaining why he’s wrong in all of his Obama dooming predictions. You can bet he guaranteed just about everybody he knew that Obama could never be elected either time to the Presidency.

    The problem with trying to prank a birfer, 1) it’s too easy, and 2) they never get it, is that they have neither senses of humor or proportion, and so can’t tell fact from fantasy. Which is to say they will believe anything that fits their belief structure no matter how outlandish it is. One of the reasons they fall for each and every conspiracy theory that comes down the pike. Satire and humor are wasted on them.

    In a way, they are on the autism spectrum. The inability to understand things like satire, sarcasm, irony, humour etc. is typical of that.
    For example they have no problems yapping about ridicule being an “Alinsky tactic” (Teabag lingo for “devil’s work”) and using “Obummer” or “Piglosi” in the same sentence.

    It’s pointless to prank a birther because they don’t realise they’re being pranked and most of the time it becomes apart of the birther lexicon. For example the bomford fake, the April fools day foreign student nonsense. Even the articles that were fed to sharon rondeau

    Well, that depends on what your objective is. If it’s to amuse them, you’re right about it being doomed.

    Otoh, if the goal is to amuse yourself, or to make them look ridiculous, or to sucker them out of a bunch of donation money, it can work out quite well.

    Although it can also end badly: I remain concerned that, when the CCP scam is undeniably exposed, one or more of the suckers will go after Zullo. And, possibly, if they’re unhinged enough to not realize he’s well-guarded, Arpaio.

    Not because of birfering, afaik. But I believe it was reported that the guy who shot up the Holocaust Museum in DC was also a birther. I think they only mentioned it to show that he was more than one flavor of conspiracy nut, not because it had anything to do with his motivation.

    Yes, 99.99% of the birther bluster doesn’t even go from online insults to phone harassment. But among the .01% will be a few who’ve invested a substantial (to them) chunk of change in Arpaio’s campaign and/or the CCP because they’re downright rabid about Obama, and they believed they’d see some real results from it. That’s very different from just ranting at faceless stereotyped strangers in a chatroom. That’s personal, and feeling they’ve been betrayed could lead to the same kind of murderous rage that causes people to shoot unfaithful spouses or cheating business partners.
