I have written many articles on Jade Helm 15, but now as the so-called exercises begin, the Military is banning media from any reporting on Jade Helm 15 exercises! What are they hiding?
So much for the First Amendment under the regime of Imam Barack Hussein Obama! Restricting or manipulating the freedom of the press has become the norm for this Communist Regime and once again, they have demonstrated an unwillingness to be transparent with the American people on what is a defined violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, as well as Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution as Jade Helm 15 begins. Yet, the military is not allowing media access to Jade Helm 15 military exercises taking place on American streets. The response from the military…”we don't want our enemies to know what we're doing.” One can only make one deduction from that statement…WE ARE THE ENEMY!
As the Martial Law training exercise gets underway in a couple of weeks the tensions rise among those that suspect a despotic takeover of America.
The Washington Post reports:
“Jade Helm 15, the controversial Special Operations exercise that spawned a wave of conspiracy theories about a government takeover, will open next week without any media allowed to observe it, a military spokesman said.
Embedded reporters won't be permitted at any point during the exercise, in which military officials say that secretive Special Operations troops will maneuver through private and publicly owned land in several southern states. Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria, a spokesman for Army Special Operations Command, said his organization is considering allowing a small number of journalists to view selected portions of the exercise later this summer, but nothing is finalized.”
The common response from the government is, "Well, we don't want our enemies to know what we're doing." OK, fine. Then why do we embed any reporters in actual warfare? Have you ever asked yourself that question? Why must we be so secretive about this particular 3-month long exercise that will take place on American streets, allegedly in preparation for war in the Middle East? Especially when we seem to be systematically pulling out of the Middle East. Does that make any sense?
No it’s a lie! And here’s why…
Never before in American history has the military ever practiced war games in the streets of America. Moreover, there is a good reason for this, on Army and Marine installations all over the country are mock-ups of towns, rural areas, deserts, jungles, swamps, every type of environment one could possibly imagine in the world. I can attest to that first hand because I trained on them.
Lastoria issued a statement to the Washington Post on Wednesday, which read:
"All requests from the media for interviews and coverage of U.S. Army Special Operations Command personnel, organizations and events are assessed for feasibility and granted when and where possible. We are dedicated to communicating with the public, while balancing that against the application of operations security and other factors."
People have stood by the Jade Helm exercises as a "defensive measure" and such. The Rand Corporation even attempts to line up a violation of the Posse Comitatus Act with such use of the American military. According to a document on their site titled Overview of the Posse Comitatus Act, we read:
“Pursuant to the presidential power to quell domestic violence, federal troops are expressly exempt from the prohibitions of Posse Comitatus Act, and this exemption applies equally to active-duty military and federalized National Guard troops.”
So, what's wrong with that? After all, isn't Jade Helm being promoted as dealing with dissidents and insurrection? It is, but the power to put down insurrection does not lie with the US military. It lies with the militia (the People).
Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution reads that part of Congress' enumerated powers are to:
“To provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions;
To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the militia, and for governing such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States, reserving to the states respectively, the appointment of the officers, and the authority of training the militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;”
Some will call this the National Guard, but that is not true at all. In fact, we know from history that Congress could constitutionally mandate guns and ammunition purchases forand that consisted of the men of the states.
David Zuniga, in his excellent article on the subject of constitutional troops reminds us of the words of Representative Elbridge Gerry, who on August 17, 1789 in debate on what later became the Second Amendment, said:
“What, sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty. Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.”
"So the Second Amendment and the century-old Dick Act aside; citizens owning and bearing MILITARY GRADE arms -- semi-auto, selective-fire, and fully automatic ('machine guns') is not only a right stipulated in the Second Amendment, it is a DUTY of every citizen in Militia, as stipulated in Article I, Section 8, Clause 15 of the Constitution," writes Zuniga. "The Posse Comitatus Act and the 1903 Dick Act only reiterate what the Constitution had already guaranteed -- and what GOD had granted from the beginning," he concluded.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Clearly it is the militia who are supposed to be involved in what we are told US Special Operators are doing in Jade Helm 15, while the Navy and such are to be defenders of the borders of the United States.
So, for all of this talk about the military exercises preparing for war in foreign lands, while cutting off the press seems to me to be a smoke screen for what is really going on behind the scenes. And make no mistake, Barack Hussein Obama knows exactly what he's doing, but like his birth certificate, Social Security number and Selective Service form among other forged and illegal documents, he will not allow the truth to come to light. He is, therefore at the very least, guilty of hypocrisy when Obama tells others, "The only people that don't want to disclose the truth, are people with something to hide."
"None but an armed nation can dispense with a standing army. To keep ours armed and disciplined is therefore at all times important, but especially so at a moment when rights the most essential to our welfare have been violated." --Thomas Jefferson
