Operation Jade Helm, which is scheduled to kick off in July and run for eight weeks, will involve the participation of 1,200 troops from the US military’s most elite fighting forces, including Green Berets, Navy SEALS and Special Operations from the Air Force and Marines.
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.
In an effort to simulate the type of battlefield conditions soldiers may face in foreign countries, the US military has designated the remote training areas where they will operate as in a “hostile” territory, a description that has irked some residents.
Meanwhile, Texans living in close proximity to the operation will be asked to report any “suspicious activity” during the exercise, a request that seems to contradict the belief laid out in the US military training document, leaked by The Houston Chronicle, that Texans are “historically supportive” of military efforts to “fight the enemies of the United States.”
Editor’s Note: On ABC News This Week Sunday news program (March 29, 2015), White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest and Indiana Governor Mike Pence offered opposing views on the Religious Freedom Bill. Gov. Pence went first, reiterating that Bill Clinton signed the exact same legislation into law in 1993. But then Press Secretary Earnest scoffed at the idea of referring to what he considered an outdated law, questioning the Governor’s wisdom for going back over 20 years to justify a law today when the times have changed. This line of thinking is exactly what’s wrong with this country, suggesting that somehow there is an expiration date on laws and freedoms. The same line of thinking is used to make God irrelevant, suggesting that God and Jesus are not in step with the times. Well who exactly is determining what the “times” are that make everything else irrelevant? Answer: Mystery Babylon the Great!
Here are some links to the actual Indiana law in question:
The most overlooked piece of evidence in the downing of the Germanwings Airbus A320 is as follows:
Witnesses have described hearing an explosion ‘like the sound of dynamite’, and then seeing fighter jets fly past, suggesting the passenger plane had been under military escort.’
In the history of the commercial airline industry never has a jetliner been brought down under the bizarre and much publicized circumstances of a depressed pilot deliberately executing a “crash and burn” scenario. Given the number of mysterious airliner crashes and explosions over the past few years, there appears to be only one explanation for this purposeful takedown.
More questions emerge: Why has no picture of the black box with the missing flight recorder been released? Who is the girlfriend?
WITH EVERY PASSING DAY, MORE AND MORE QUESTIONS ARISE OVER THE OFFICIAL NARRATIVE OF HOW THE GERMANWINGS PLANE CRASHED NEED TO BE ADDRESSED.
WHY ARE THERE NO PICTURES OF THE FLIGHT DATA RECORDER BLACK BOX WITH THE MISSING MEMORY CARD AVAILABLE FOR ANALYSIS?
PICTURES OF THE VOICE COCKPIT RECORDER HAVE BEEN RELEASED BY FRENCH PROSECUTORS.
SO WHY NOT OF THE OTHER BLACK BOX? IS IT BECAUSE THE DAMAGE IS NOT CONSISTENT WITH THE DISLODGING OF THE MEMORY CARD AND PROSECUTORS DON T WANT US TO SEE THAT? WAS THE MEMORY CARD, IN FACT, TAKEN OUT DURING THE INSPECTION IN DUSSELDORF ONE DAY PRIOR TO THE FLIGHT AND WAS MALWARE INSTALLED IN THE AVIONICS BAY?

Saudi Arabia, answering the call from Yemeni President Hadi, invaded Yemen. Huthis came out to the Gulf of Aden that raised very serious concerns in Saudi Arabia. The Huthis can take control of the Bab-el-Mandeb – the strait, on which tankers transport oil from the Persian Gulf to Europe and America. As soon as the military operation in Yemen started, oil prices soared.
The Saudis, having used the threat from the Huthis, won the support of the United States for the operation against Yemen. Saudi Arabia has thus struck a mediated blow on Iran that supports the Huthis. The United States is unwilling to ruin its ties with Iran for two reasons. Obama has staked his reputation by negotiating the Iranian nuclear program. He also hopes for Iran’s help in curbing the Islamic State in Iraq. Nevertheless, the ally (Saudi Arabia) insisted Obama should announce the “logistical support” for the…
