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. 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.
Not 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.”

The MSM Is Coming Unglued Defending Jade Helm
Linked at RedFlag – Veteran Mark calls in – tells everyone the military is lying. Says that infiltrating the population undetected is out of bounds and I15 road to Vegas – huge build-up. Thousand of MRAPS and Humvees – stage for something in California.
Military Build Up For Jade Helm Is Biggest Ever Seen
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 –

If nothing happens by September 15, 2015, we’re all safe. The Birthers will probably never feel safe.

Update (7/16/2019): Of course Jade Helm 15 completed without incident. No martial law was declared. Barack Obama left office at the end of his term. I updated one of the links declaring that it was confirmed ISIS was streaming over the southern border to the web archive version, the original having been deleted.
