Jade Helm: Special Forces train with local police for domestic military raids

Special Forces to conduct simulated domestic military raids on American soil

By Alex Thomas

(INTELLIHUB) — In yet another startling revelation in the lead up to Jade Helm 2015, Special Forces out of Fort Bragg are currently training with Richland County, South Carolina police officers to provide realistic military scenarios.

Footage from previous training in the area included midnight house to house raids conducted by a combined military and police force.

A three paragraph report by a local mainstream news outlet revealed a few facts about the training but, in true mainstream propaganda style, the report didn’t include any actual investigation or questioning of local officials.

Military and sheriff’s department vehicles will be traveling in the Lower Richland County community near Eastover and Hopkins, in Elgin near Screaming Eagle Road, and North Richland County in the Monticello Road area.

The sheriff’s department says people in those areas may also hear ordinance being set off or shots being fired. They say those will be simulations or blanks and do not pose a risk to the community.

Sheriff Leon Lott says the department’s Special Response Team will take part in the exercises with the 3rd Special Forces Group. Lott says deputies will provide simulated scenarios for the military.

Lott says Richland County provides an ideal location for training that cannot be replicated at Fort Bragg.

The new training comes out a time when the military and corporate media have kicked their PR machine into high gear in an attempt to convince the American people that Jade Helm has nothing to do with domestic policing.

In Orwellian doublespeak fashion, the American people are essentially being led to believe that despite the fact that the military is publicly training for domestic unrest there is no actual plan to use them in that capacity.

Elements of the so-called alternative media, in their pointless attempts to be seen as credible by the corporate controlled press, have even downplayed the open military buildup as fear mongering and disinformation. This is happening despite the fact that almost everyday new reports surface showing an increased military buildup throughout the country.

The increased buildup points to the fact that practicing for future unrest in America has become increasingly important to the powers that be. Most notably, many of the drills have included people pretending to be angry American citizens.

In early April, National Guard troops conducted a dirty bomb drill in California that included role players playing the part of “sovereign citizens.” (HT – Paul Joseph Watson)

“I’m a sovereign citizen, I refuse to recognize you guys, I refuse to recognize you.”

Video footage taken in Fort Lauderdale, Florida showed troops training for what looked to be a martial law style internment of American citizens.

The clip shows armed troops arresting role players on the street before a column of prisoners are marched towards a mock internment facility. Black Hawk choppers are also seen whizzing between buildings.

The exercise was accompanied by very little media coverage. A Sun-Sentinel report said that Broward County police would be “assisting members of the U.S. Special Operations Forces who are undergoing urban warfare training.”

The drill, which was held in locations the military refused to disclose beforehand, began on March 17 and ended on Friday. 200 military personnel from all four branches, Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy, took part in the exercise.

“The goal is to prepare participants in realistic, unfamiliar training conditions before they deploy for combat overseas,” states the report. Residents were advised “not to be alarmed by the Black Hawk helicopters in the sky.”

Broward County also saw similar drills back in March 2014, when Navy SEALS practicing storming a university building from a helicopter.

The sheer amount of documented training to take on the American people by portions of the military and local law enforcement would take multiple pages to fill. Simply put, there is so much evidence that a martial law scenario is being trained for that anyone attempting to deny it at this point either has an agenda or is extremely naive.

One can only hope that the patriots within the military feel just as much anger over the plans as many of the American people do. For it will take a concerted effort by those in power within the military and police establishment to put an end to this notion once and for all.

In the above video, Gary Franchi, speaking to those who still might not believe that this could happen, asked this very pointed question.

“The next question is who is the intended target? I’ll leave that up to you in the comments section below… I’ll give you a hint.”

“You train where you deploy.”
