Letter To Governor Martinez:

“April 1, 2015

Dear Governor Martinez,

I again would be remiss if I didn’t share the following letter that I forwarded to our NM U.S. Senator Tom Udall today regarding my concerns regarding the upcoming U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) Training Exercise:

Letter To Senator Udall:

“April 1, 2015

The Honorable Tom Udall

United States Senate

110 Hart Senate Office Building

Washington, DC 20510-3101

Dear Senator Udall:

On or about February 7, 2015, I sent your office my seventh letter respectfully demanding the “Return of Government to Our Constitutional Principles”, along with sharing some extremely disturbing information with you, which I respectfully requested your take and/or feedback on.

For your information, must to my dismay, I again have not received an answer to my above letter, but be that as it may, today I wanted to share the following extremely disturbing and time sensitive information with you:

On or about March 31, 2015, I drafted and posted the following blog on all of my blog websites regarding what I consider to be our Command-In-Chief’s undeniable disdain shown for our men and women in uniform and our veterans, along with his true allegiance, which were well documented in my blog that contains numerous other articles and/or blogs and videos that relate to and/or further support my concerns:

Senator Udall, I now believe that his disdain is all part of a bigger plot engineered and/or designed by the "Shadow Party" to unilaterally disarm America through steep military spending reductions by depicting all American military actions as unwarranted and immoral with an ultimate goal of bringing it down, as documented in the following website, video and articles and/or blogs:

Cogressman Allen West Excoriates Obama Over Military Sequestration!-Posted on The Shark Tank-By Javier Manjarres-On September 15, 2012:

http://shark-tank.com/2012/09/15/congressman-allen-west-excoriates-...

On or about March 27, 2015, there was an article that was posted by Jon Harper, Stars and Stripes and published by Stars and Stripes, regarding a special operations exercise, that was planed and sponsored by the U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) and slated to take place across multiple southwestern states, outside the confines of U.S. military bases, to include my state of New Mexico, which has been labeled as “leaning hostile.”

Army Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria, a USASOC spokesman, recently confirmed in an email to Stars and Stripes that there is an upcoming exercise called “Jade Helm 15,” which is scheduled to take place this summer between July 15 to September 15, 2015 at locations in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, California and Nevada.

According to Lt. Col. Lastoria, this exercise is routine training to maintain a high level of readiness for Army Special Operations Forces, which will involve the Green Berets, Navy Seals, and the 82nd Airborne Division because they must be ready to support potential missions anywhere in the world on a moment’s notice, although he never mentioned that there are supposedly other units involved in this “training exercise” (e.g., DHS, FBI and the joint personnel recovery agency that will be working with them, to include the DEA ad FEMA, etc.). He also denied that the event is in preparation for some sort of military takeover and or martial law.

On or about March 27, 2015, the following article and/or blog written by Alex Newman and published by The New American, which I am taking the liberty of sharing with you in it’s entirety because it reveals some extremely disturbing information regarding what seems to the true intent of this supposed operations training exercise:

Military Drill Identifying “Hostile” U.S. States Sparks Alarm!-Posted on The New American-By Alex Newman-On March 27, 2015:

A massive U.S. military drill dubbed “Jade Helm 15” lists Texas, Utah, and part of California as “hostile” or “insurgent pocket” territory. The unclassified information about this drill is causing widespread alarm nationwide, with more than a few analysts suggesting it may be some sort of exercise practicing to impose martial law on Americans fed up with an out-of-control federal government. During the exercises, which will take place over the summer, Special Forces from various branches of the military will work with local law-enforcement in scenarios that, to critics at least, sound suspiciously like they are aimed at subduing rebellious American civilians and states amid a civil war or large-scale unrest. The federal government issued a response dismissing the concerns and saying that the training is to help U.S. forces prepare for overseas missions, but not everyone is convinced.

The most alarming components of the drills highlighted by concerned citizens and media commentators surround an unclassified presentation about Jade Helm 15’s “realistic military training” that was apparently leaked. In a graphic showing the territory across which the training will take place — essentially the American Southwest — different states are colored based on the fictional status of their loyalty to Washington. Colorado, Nevada, and most of California, for example, are dark blue, indicating that they are “permissive.” Utah and Texas are both shaded red, indicating that they are “hostile.” Southern California is also red, with a note reading “insurgent pocket.” Arizona is light blue, which in the legend is listed as “uncertain (leaning friendly),” while New Mexico is brown, or “uncertain (leaning hostile).” Two more states, Florida and Louisiana, have reportedly been added to the exercise.

According to the presentation, the eight-week training program involves Navy SEALs, Army Special Forces Command (Green Berets), Air Force Special Operations Command, Marine Special Operations Command, Marine Expeditionary Units, the 82nd Airborne Division, and unspecified “interagency partners.” Underneath the logo for the Jade Helm drills, a sword with two arrows crossing it, it reads: “Master the Human Domain.” What exactly that means was not clear, but at least some critics of the exercise have suggested it may be a euphemism for subjugating the population of the United States. Indeed, as other analysts have noted, citing available information, the drill almost certainly has nothing to do with defending the Southern border from invasion. The few details that have been provided, though, are causing concern among analysts.

On a slide explaining “what to expect” during the two-month training program for “unconventional warfare,” the document warns of “increased aircraft in the area at night,” possible noise complaints, personnel carrying weapons with blank ammo, and more. Especially alarming to critics of the program is that “some individuals may conduct suspicious activities designed to prepare them for complex environments overseas,” and that “some participants will be wearing civilian attire and driving civilian vehicles.” Separately, a slide describing what “realistic military training” means has also raised alarm. The document mentions that it will be conducted “outside of federally owned property” and that it is designed to “ensure proper coordination between DOD representatives and local and regional authorities.” News reports citing military officials said the DEA, FBI, and the “Joint Personnel Recovery Agency” (JPRA) would also be participating.

Citing other recently leaked U.S. military documents such as “FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations” about interning American civilians in camps, using “psyops” (psychological operations) on those detainees to affect their views, and more, David Hodges with the Common Sense Show said the drill is “undoubtedly the most frightening thing to occur on American soil since the Civil War.” In a widely re-published article about the training program, he said it could be “conclusively stated” that the drill was really about “preparing for a Red, White and Blue invasion.” “This is a massive rehearsal for martial law implementation as well as implementing the proverbial and much rumored Red and Blue List and the ‘snatch and grab’ extractions of key resistance figures from the Independent Media as well as uncooperative political figures,” Hodges added. “The various provisions of Jade Helm make it clear just how dangerous this drill truly is.”

Responding to widely expressed concerns that the scheme is “preparation for imposing martial law or subduing right-leaning groups and individuals,” as the military publication Stars and Stripes put it, U.S. Army Special Operations Command denied the accusation. “That notion was proposed by a few individuals who are unfamiliar with how and why USASOC conducts training exercises,” USASOC spokesman Army Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria was quoted as saying. “This exercise is routine training to maintain a high level of readiness for Army Special Operations Forces because they must be ready to support potential missions anywhere in the world on a moment’s notice.” He re-iterated those comments in other interviews as well. Despite being referred to as “routine,” it was not clear whether any similar drill identifying U.S. states as “hostile” had ever taken place — except perhaps amid the Civil War.

In comments quoted by the Houston Chronicle, which made its bias obvious in the first sentence by claiming that the drills had “stirred some ultra-right-wing fears of a government takeover in the Lone Star State,” local law enforcement officials also shed some light on what to expect. “They’re going to set up cells of people and test how well they’re able to move around without getting too noticed in the community,” Chief Deputy Roy Boyd with the Victoria County Sheriff’s Office was quoted as saying by the paper. “They’re testing their abilities to basically blend in with the local environment and not stand out and blow their cover.” A former Army Intelligence officer was also quoted downplaying fears about the drill and suggesting that it was largely routine training.

Separately, the Chronicle attempted to belittle concerns expressed by critics about the program. National radio host Alex Jones, for example — whose audience dwarfs the readership and listenership of many “mainstream” outlets, including the Chronicle — was introduced as part of the “far-right fringe” movement. Jones’ radio show and online portal Infowars played a key role in raising awareness about the drills under the headline “Feds Preparing to Invade Texas, List State as Hostile.” The supposed “journalist” at the Chronicle, apparently unable to contain himself or conceal his extreme bias, went on to describe the website Freedom Outpost, which also raised concerns about the drill and suggested it was practice for domestic martial law, as “ultra-libertarian.”

While local authorities quoted in news reports were aware of the programs and vowed to work with the community to prevent panic or paranoia, it would not be the first time that the Pentagon has alarmed U.S. civilians with its drills. In 2013, a series of “urban warfare” military exercises in major cities including Miami and Houston invo... who were unaware of what was going on. AsThe New American has also reported in recent years, under the Obama administration, military authorities have taken the unprecedented step of bringing troops from Communist China andRussia to do “training drills” with American forces. Other foreign militaries, primarily European, have for decades been practicing citizen disarmament and other drills on U.S. soil, as documented on video by Alex Jones.

Considering the fact that two-thirds of the American people in polls say the federal government is “out of control” and a “thre..., it is hardly surprising that many citizens do not trust the Obama administration when it performs military drills with law enforcement that it has been militarizingand attempting to nationalize — especially while identifying conservative states as “hostile” enemies. Obama’s invitation of foreign troops loyal to hostile regimes for military training drills in the United States certainly did not help matters. Nor does the fact that the current commander in chief began his political career in the living room of communist terroris... — a man whose terror spree was backed by the Soviet puppet regime of Fidel Castro when it bombed the Pentagon and murdered police officers. Ayers’ terror group, the Weather Underground, planned to exterminate 25 million Americans in camps across the Southwest after taking over, according to FBI agent Larry Grathwohl who infiltrated the organiza.... “They were dead serious,” Grathwohl said in anvideo-taped interview.

Of course, the federal government’s recent behavior — ranging from Homeland Security stockpiling massive amounts of hollow-point ammun... to the multiple agencies producing propaganda demonizing U.S. military veterans, Christians, and Americans with mainstream political views as potential terrorists — is also unlikely to inspire trust. In fact, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia warned just last year tha... if you do not think mass internment of U.S. citizens, as happened with Japanese-Americans during World War II, would eventually return to this country.

Jade Helm drill may well just be nothing more than training U.S. forces for “overseas missions,” as officials claim. However, considering the known details of the exercise and the accelerating anti-constitutional lawlessness of the federal government, it is hardly unreasonable to express concerns. In fact, anybody who is not concerned by the current state of U.S. affairs is simply not paying attention.

Who are we to believe?

In my own personal twenty year military experience this type of exercise is unheard of because normally any such training and/or operational exercise is usually conducted on a military installation/facility and not out on our streets and isn’t there a law against having active military units policing our streets here at home. It really makes me question their true intentions, motives and/or agendas because it seems that our own government has made it very clear through recent emergency alerts that have been drafted and issued by the Department of Homeland Security, which I have also included below, clearly state that military, veterans, the National Guard, and those who eschew President Obama’s obvious brand of democratic socialism.

These are the same individuals that have taken an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” which in the recent past included supposedly stopping the spread of “Communism” (e.g., Vietnam War where approximately 58,000 of our own young men and women in uniform gave their all and where I personally lost many a friend, et.).

These are also the same individuals that our own Commander-In-Chief and other elected officials have in the past and continue to send around the globe to fight and possibly die while abiding by their oaths and are now considered to be our “home grown terrorists” and labeled as a national security threat to the Country/Republic for which they have fought and continue to die for:

Note: What follows are pertinent excepts from a recent article and/or blog drafted by Joe Mcmaster and published by Freedom Outpost, on or about March 24, 2015, which relates to and/or further supports my concerns regarding this supposed “readiness training exercise”:

“A couple months ago the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) and FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) stated that the number one threat to the United States is none other than its own citizenry. This isn’t some small group of spun out nuts or even groups of people that the government feels are too religious such as Waco Texas and The Branch Davidians.

As far as Islam, they were not even mentioned in the report. Instead, huge swaths of American culture and people were listed as the most likely threat to our country. These were some of the groups listed; Christians, Home Schoolers, Members of the Tea Party, Constitutionalists, Preppers (people who can food), Militia and the terrorist group they are most concerned about is returning combat veterans of the United States of America.

As 22-25 veterans commit suicide every day and they struggle with any real medical care, they are thanked by dying while dealing with the VA (Veterans Administration) and then listed as thenumber one threat to their country. Lately, it has become crystal clear that it’s become a culture in the VA. The directors are willing participants in the scheduling schemes and shell games. When they’re not collecting bonuses, they are making fun of veteran’s committing suicide (See what’s her name….)

Moving right along, about a month later a reputable polling agency polled Americans and posed a simple, straight-forward question, What is the number one threat to America? The results were decisive loud and clear, The U.S. Government. The economy was second and Islamic terrorists a distant sixth in the poll results.

In the previous years leading up to the government listing its citizens as its number one threat, they just happened to pass out a few thousand MRAP Armored vehicles of War, along with all kinds of military surplus weapons systems and night fighting optics.

Then, in April of last year, the government stepped up its pace. They sent Federal SWAT teams to the State of Nevada where cattle were killed, women were assaulted, people were tased and the actions of a police state were right on the television and internet for the entire world to see. Fearing another Waco, Texas or Ruby Ridge, Idaho, people from all over the country responded to help Cliven Bundy and.... The Federal SWAT teams and BLM finally lost their resolve and left, but only after shooting and running a lot of cattle to death and destroying a spring used for water.

My note: What follows is my blog relating to the above extremely disturbing issue:

New EPA Land Grab, Complete Control Over All Private Land in America! (Part 1)-Posted on Tea Party Command Center-By Jake Martinez-On April 11, 2014:

http://teapartyorg.ning.com/profiles/blogs/new-epa-land-grab-comple...

This takes us to the next step, a joint military LEA (Law Enforcement Agencies) exercise. This exercise is called, “Operation Jade Helm.” It is slated to last eight weeks and cover seven states in the American South west; Texas and Utah being listed as Hostile States, New Mexico being mostly hostile, Arizona being mostly Friendly and California, Nevada and Colorado all being friendly states. This exercise is under the command of the American Military’s most elite forces, USASOC (United States Army Special Operations Command). USASOC released an outline of the exercise and the units that will be involved.

“We have Army Green Berets, Navy Seals, Marine Special Operations Command, the 82ndAirborne Division and we also have some of our inter-agency partners such as the DEA, FBI and the joint personnel recovery agency that will be working with us.”

As a combat veteran, I find the direction and tone of this administration very disconcerting to say the least. The wounded veterans are looked at with a clear disdain via the leadership at the VA. The ones that were not wounded, were looked at like an enemy and placed on Terror lists. While The United States takes Hezbollah and Iran off the Terrorist list, I find it very hard to even accept what is taking place right in front of everyone, but nonetheless it certainly is.

I do not see any situation that would call for American Elite Special Forces, Airborne combat units and operators to engage in Martial law in the United States.”

Jake:

Very well done. 

Semper Fi! 

I just finished reading a book by Jesse Ventura with Dick Russell ("63 Documents The Government Doesn't Want You To Read").  Although I am thoroughly disgusted with Ventura over his lawsuit against Chris Kyle and his widow, I cannot deny this book has opened my eyes to a lot, including the fact that the Posse Comitatus Act 18 U.S.C. enacted in 1994 was basically gutted with a Memo written by John C. Yoo, Deputy Assistant Attorney General and Robert J. Delahunty, Special Counsel, directed to Alberto Gonzales, Counsel to the President and William J Haynes, II, General Counsel, Department of Defense dated October 23, 2001.

Below are just a few excerpts that prove this point:

Their analysis falls into 5 parts:  First, President's constitutional powers:  "These authorities demonstrate that the President has ample authority to deploy military force against terrorist threats within the United States."

Second, the legal consequences of S.J. Res. 23, Pub. L. No. 107-40, 115 Stat. 224 (2001), which authorized the President to use force in response to 9/11.  "Enactment of this legislation recognizes that the President may deploy military force domestically and to prevent and deter similar terrorist attacks."

Third, they examine the Posse Comitatus Act:  "....and show that it only applies to the domestic use of the Armed Forces for law enforcement purposes, rather than the performance of military functions.  The Posse Comitatus Act itself contains an exception that allows the use of the military when constitutionally or statutorily authorized, which has occurred in the present circumstances."

Fourth, they turn to the question of the Fourth Amendment:  "Although the situation is novel (at least in the nation's recent experience), we think that the better view is that the Fourth Amendment would not apply in these circumstances.  Thus, for example, we do not think that a military commander carrying out a raid on a terrorist cell would be required to demonstrate probable cause or to obtain a warrant."

Fifth, they examine the consequences of ignoring the Fourth Amendment:  "The Government's compelling interest in protecting the nation from attack and in prosecuting the war effort would outweigh the relevant privacy interests, making the search or seizure reasonable."

The document itself is far too long to recreate here, but I strongly advise that people search out this document, and others, to read it for yourselves.  Basically, by calling it "The War on Terror," they can do pretty much anything they damned well please, including taking and/or destroying personal property, which is supported by numerous court rulings, including Supreme Court cases.  At the back of the book, the following list of websites is provided - please note that I have not visited any of these websites (yet) and, therefore, cannot speak to their veracity or safety:

cryptome.org: founded in 1996: "Cryptome welcomes documents for publication that are prohibited by governments worldwide, in particular materials on freedom of expression, privacy, cryptology, dual-use technologies, national security, intelligence and secret governance - open, secret, and classified documents - but not limited to those."

Judith M. Green: 

I have similar disgust for Ventura and what he did to Chris Kyle and his widow. 

The issue that I have about Ventura is that he should have done 'his work' while he was 'Governor' - but chose not to.  He was in a position of power to actually speak up and do something about all the Conspiracy Theories he talks about.  Now he basically slams us for the way things are and makes money biting at our heals to fix a system of government that he used to help lead. 

Although I appreciate Ventura's 'works', especially speaking up about the Gulf War Syndrome, there is no leadership from anywhere or anyone, on how to get us out of this rat's nest government system. 

Now that an 'awakening' has revealed the madness and methods of government - how do we fix this and obtain life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? 

I really wish I knew.  Just sayin' ....

If, in fact, we are not close to the beginning of the Tribulation (which I believe is very possible), I am hedging my bets by joining AmericaAgainNow! $30, in the overall scheme of things, is a drop in the bucket and well worth the investment if it helps them accomplish even a portion of their stated mission! I agree about Ventura but then, the same applies to ALL politicians, doesn't it?

Judith M. Green: 

AmericaAgainNow! does look promising, and as I have said before - it's Headquarters are offshore and they want $30.00.   Makes me feel skeptical, although their message is worth considering. 

You're right about all the politicians, then again, I can't help to ponder: 'what really happened to Harry Reid?'  Do all the politicians risk the same fate or worse if they do not do as they are told by another entity, instead of what they were supposed to do on the behalf of the American people?  Look at what is happening to Menendez.  It looks as though he is on a fast track to someone's private hell. 

I pray each day that there is something that I could do to protect America and save Freedom.  That was the concept behind my USN service - now I deal with Gulf War Syndromes. 

At least for now, I hope that passing along information via the internet will be of benefit to those who can help us restore America and Freedom. 

You have my deepest sympathies for what you are suffering after your service in the Gulf.  Thankfully, my brother who served in the USN in the Gulf (he was stationed on the USS Moosbrugger/DD-980 and Assault Craft Unit Four) has not experienced any physical symptoms or health problems.  I was in the WAC from 1976 - 1979 (altho the WAC was disbanded in 1977 and I was transferred to RA) and served as a secretary at the Pentagon.  Although I attended basic training at Ft. McClellan, AL I did not suffer any side effects from the reported chemical contamination of the site.   I have a half-brother who is currently serving in the Army, as well as my niece, who is in the AF (currently in So. Korea but soon to be transferred to Minnesota - only 7 hrs from home).  My entire family has a long, long tradition of serving, going back to my great-grandfather, who was injured at Gettysburg and carried the shrapnel until his death.

I am with you - my goal is to try to educate as many people as possible, while continuing to educate myself as well.  I have been blessed in that I have been afforded the time to be able to put in many, many hours in my quest for education and enlightenment and want to share what I learn with others who are not so blessed.  I will pray for you, your success and your health, as well as for our country and all true patriots.

How to post "live" URL in posts at PFA............. Adding URLs in blog posts that are not "live" is a waste of everyone's time.....
Here's how....if anyone has better guidance send to me.....
First........type your text entry into the post block to include typing or paste the URL you want us to view........when finished with the text, highlight and copy the URL in the text.......then click the "add hyperlink" tool in the B, I, U box just above the text entry, after clicking, a window will open asking for the URL...paste the URL in the box and click "OK". You have now made the URL "live"...........it shows some code before the post is published, it goes away when you "publish post".......
