Jade Helm: is the end-game martial law and detention of veterans and others?



Jade Helm 15 has generated widespread internet and alternative media concerns of U.S. troops conducting an unconventional warfare exercise in towns, some in civilian clothing and armed, in the Southwest and maybe across the U.S.

(SALEM)  Dismissed as a hoax by the Army, the fears of ordinary patriotic Americans have not been dampened by the Army’s public relations presentations.

Americans support our troops but the use of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command and service members from the military’s four branches to conduct an unconventional warfare exercise over 8-weeks across multiple states for the purpose of realistic training troops for deployment in foreign environments makes no sense unless the plan is to use these troops for real within the sovereign fifty United States.

Jade Helm 15 is a “Realistic Military Training (RMT) exercise conducted outside of federally owned property on and off of private property. The RMT process is designed to ensure proper coordination between DOD representatives and local and regional authorities” according to US Army Special Operations Command (USASOC). 

The devil is always in the details.  If you thought that Jade Helm 15 was just a typical military exercise, think again. 

The BREAKING NEWS is that Field McConnell, United States Marine veteran and co-founder of Abel Danger website, reported on the Abel Danger website that  Veterans who were recruited to play actors in the Jade Helm 15 exercise may be unknowingly participating in the overthrown of the United States government, SBA Section 8a contractors were hired to write the script for the exercise’s role players, and use a secured Onion Router network to communicate outside of the official chain of command.

McConnell linked Jade Helm 15 to the Small Business Administration and ICE, Inc., a Certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned and SBA 8(a) company, VA-for-Vets hiring fairs,  Serco’s 8a Onion Router network, Base One Technologies and a command chain that includes Valerie Jarrett.

According to Field McConnell, “The government has knowingly and fraudulently recruited vulnerable veterans at phony VA-for-Vets hiring fairs and either bribing them or extorting them to join companies set up a false-flag operation for a coup d’état as part of the Jade Helm 15 unconventional warfare exercise.”

McConnell has information that phony VA for Vets hiring fairs were used to bribe and extort vulnerable veterans to join companies such as ICE, Inc. to set up a false flag operation for a coup d’état as part of the Jade Helm 15 unconventional warfare exercise.  The veterans are to be used as actors in role playing activities, which could turn deadly for the participants, if live ammunition is used.

McConnell reported that:

“Base One Technologies’ operation of a Jade Helm command chain for Valerie Jarrett to Serco’s Black Hand navigators who have allegedly been moving hollow-point ammo through the U.S. Defense Ammunition Center and the Silk Road onion router network for the Clinton Foundation and its 100 Women in Hedge Funds.” 

Valerie Jarrett is a Senior Advisor to President Obama and Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs.

McConnell wrote on May 1, 2014 that:

“Jarrett’s mentors in Chicago, Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers, believed they would need to kill 25 million Americans to secure their Weather Underground revolution. “

McConnell alleged that:

“Jarrett has asked Base One to structure the Jade Helm command so she could switch it from a training exercise to a Serco Black Hand ammo event and hedge against the implosion of Clinton’s presidential campaign after 25 years of pay-to-play racketeering.”

ICE, Inc., a defense contractor, is actively involved in managing portions of the USASOC Jade Helm 15 exercise.  Thomas Mead, an ICE, Inc. employee, is listed below as the “Jade Helm Operations Planner.”  Francisco Oquendo, Jr., a civilian employee of ICE, Inc., is listed as Jade Helm Operations Planner.  Intelligence, Communications, Engineering, Inc. or ICE, Inc. is headquartered in Sierra Vista, Arizona.  The company is a Certified Disabled Veteran Owned and SBA 8a company, founded in January 2007.

Thomas Mead and Francisco Oquendo Jr., Jade Helm Operations Planners are civilian employees of ICE, Inc. Both men have military email and ICE, Inc., email addresses :  Mr. Thomas Mead JADE HELM Operations Planner/MSEL WK: 910-396-9831, 910-396-9831/6316 Cell: 910-391-1137,  e-mail: [email protected],[email protected], and Mr. Francisco Oquendo Jr. JADE HELM Operations Planner, 910 396-9831/6316, Cell: 910 916-0821, e-mail: [email protected] and [email protected].”

The Small Business Administration (SBA)’s Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concern Procurement Program provides federal government agencies with the authority to set acquisitions aside for exclusive competition among service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns, as well as the authority to make sole source awards to these companies.

Mead, a retired Army lieutenant colonel, made a series of presentations on behalf of USASOC throughout the Southwest to local communities to induce them to sign agreements supporting the Jade Helm exercise in their communities.  This allows Special Operations military personnel to interact with local police and others during the exercise. Part of ICE’s expertise is training in counterintelligence and role playing.  According to McConnell, ICE, Inc., wrote the script for Jade Helm 15.

Jade Helm Includes ‘Round-Up And Detainment Of Role Players’

A USASOC briefing officer confirmed in Bastrop, Texas, that Jade Helm 15 will consist of the ’rounding up or detaining’ of ‘role-players.’

Bastrop is the county seat of Bastrop County, TX, located about 30 miles southeast of Austin.  It is part of the Greater Austin metropolitan area. The population was 7,218 according to the 2010 census.

Video of the Bastrop County meeting showed people expressed their concerns, occasionally anger, about the Army’s use of their county in an unconventional warfare exercise with Special Operations personnel dressed as civilians as part of a training effort to prepare them  to operate in a foreign environment.

The Bastrop News report, “Military plans ‘attacked’ by skeptics, on April 28th reported that:

Lastoria – and the U.S. Government – were called deceptive and the equivalent of “out to get our guns” by several audience members. One audience member declared, after a portion of Lastoria’s talk, “I don’t believe a single word he just said.” A second audience member added, “These two men can’t be trusted,” apparently referring to Lastoria and to a man in civilian clothes who help Lastoria during his presentation with information about the overall training exercise. A third audience member asked if forces from the Islamic State would be brought to Texas. Several of the speakers were from outside Bastrop County. Many audience members hooted when they didn’t seem to agree with some of Lastoria’s statements.


Marine Field McConnell in his Abel Danger blog summed up this Jade Helm 15 meeting doubts: 

I heard from a brother that at a public hearing with SOCOM representatives in Bastrop, Texas today, 90+% of the people were upset over the military’s plans and the local County Reps agreeing to them in a previous meeting! The LTC giving the briefing deferred to Mr. Meade (the former SOCOM LTC who is now a civilian who gave the original briefings around the country) with visual eye and head motions on answers. At one point when asked, the LTC giving the briefing ADMITTED THE “DRILL” WILL INVOLVE LIMITED RED LIST EXTRACTION OF CIVILIANS!!!! (SEE 1ST VIDEO BELOW!) Now, even if only an exercise, this shows where we are!!!! The briefing to the public was an obvious attempt to placate, not inform, and the people KNEW it!!! Abel Danger has let the U S military enlisted forces active and all retirees and veteran know that 9/11 was also an exercise until the United States Senior Executive Service was complicit in it going live.

The above photograph shows the moment Infowars reporter Jakari Jackson asked Jade Helm 15’s propaganda officer if Jade Helm 15 will consist of “rounding up or detaining role-players”…the look from his civilian ‘handler’ to the far right of the picture is priceless as the facial expressions of these two men now at the center of the Jade Helm circus almost tell us more than words, and words tell us a bountiful amount though clearly not the entire picture.

The Army has labeled a hoax to the internet concerns over Jade Helm. The Bastrop, TX, town hall meeting was a good opportunity for the Army to dispel these rumors.  The Army could have invited major media outlets to cover their presentation and the follow-up Q&A at Bastrop to dispel the internet hoax, calm fears and let all Americans know they could trust the Army to do the right thing. I’m just saying.

The video demonstrates that the good people of Bastrop are no fools; they just didn’t buy the Army’s PR line.  These were small town folks from Texas who are loyal, patriotic Americans, not professional journalists, who fired some tough questions to the Army spokesman about the upcoming exercise, but from the reaction of the Bastrop citizens, this meeting failed to dispel the ‘Jade Helm hoax’ to anyone in the country with access to the YouTube video. 

Marine Major General Smedley Butler

Another Marine echoed words about war that resonate to this day.  Marine Major General Smedley Butler, a two time medal of honor recipient, words are worth repeating and remembering:

WAR is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small “inside” group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.
