A job listing by a federal contractor is asking for role-players to play the part of American citizens during martial law training in Phoenix, Arizona
(INTELLIHUB) — A federal contractor for the Department of Defense is raising eyebrows after they posted a job listing for role players that appears to include the forced relocation and detention of American citizens.
EKS Group, LLC recently posted the job description which calls for role players, “to play a vital role in assisting with this security related training.”
In a report on SHTFplan, Mac Slavo outlined the job description and also connected it to the overall preparations for martial law in the lead up to Jade Helm 2015:
This summer the U.S. government will begin an unprecedented joint military exercise involving several states and tens of thousands of participants ranging from special operations groups to volunteer citizens.
The official purpose of the exercise, dubbed Operation Jade Helm 15, according to the military is to prepare American soldiers and special operations teams for emerging foreign threats. But investigations by independent media outlets suggest it is much more than a standard “training exercise.”
Involving as many as 10 states, the operation reportedly identifies several hostile areas around the United States, including Texas and Utah and aims to have the military prepared to “master the human domain” by utilizing citizen reports and surveillance to accomplish their mission. In other words, as Dave Hodges recently noted, they want to engender trust in order to control “the totality of the physical, cultural, and social environments that influence human behavior.”
To add further fuel to the fire EKS Group LLC., a Federal contractor, is now seeking Department of Defense role players who will be tasked with what appears to be exercises that simulate the forced detention and relocation of American citizens.
The report goes on to note that the job qualifications for the role players require applicants to be able to walk up to 18 miles per day and drive in a car for up to 12.

This request for role players in the Phoenix, Arizona area comes at a time when preparations for the massive multiple state Jade Helm operation are in full gear.
Although authorities have repeatedly stated that Jade Helm is nothing more than an exercise to prepare the military for foreign combat, many believe the drills will take on a domestic focus, similar to the exercise conducted in Minneapolis, Minnesota in August 2014.
As reported by Alex Thomas, newly obtained police records from the Minneapolis drills provide insight into the purpose of recent urban military training.
Records obtained by Public Record Media provide details into a week and a half long joint military and police training exercise conducted in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The records provide hints at a possible domestic focus in the exercise, including training in preserving evidence for criminal prosecutions.
In an article by Public Record Media that accompanied the release of documents, Matt Ehling wrote of the possibility that the August 2014 training involved much closer police and military collaboration than in years past.
The fact that the training specifically included preserving evidence for criminal prosecution led to the question of whether or not there was a domestic focus in the drills.
A quote from an anonymous federal official also seemed to indicate that there had been a change in the training within the last two years under new DOD regulatory guidance.
As noted by Ehling, the military could be using the training to preserve material in foreign combat zones but when you consider the endless amount of evidence indicating a move toward a martial law scenario, this seems closer to naive wishful thinking than a real possibility.
With Jade Helm on the horizon and similar smaller drills happening throughout the country on a seemingly monthly basis, fears of a move towards some sort of military crackdown will continue. While it is unlikely that the entire military would turn on the American people, some form of martial law may be on the horizon.
