Remember Jade Helm 15, the controversial military exercise?

The military exercise Jade Helm 15 generated enough conspiracy theories this year that it garnered mockery on late-night television, commentary from presidential candidates and reaction from the Texas governor.

The exercise will end quietly Today…… It’s over …. no martial law declared, citizens are safe.

As Reported By Stripes via The Washington Post:

The basic thrust of the concerns: The military was laying the groundwork for martial law — if not now, then sometime in the future.

The exercise will end quietly Tuesday, however. Carried out in parts of Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida, it will conclude after two months of operations, said Suzanne Nagl, a spokeswoman for Army Special Operations Command, which oversaw it.

“At this time, we do not have any lessons learned to share since we have not yet conducted an after-action review of the exercise, but we do believe the exercise overall was a success,” Nagl said in an email.

As initially detailed in planning documents………

    Sure. Total press blackout, nothing happened here, move along sheep, move along.

  • Jim Roberts

    And how much did this cost taxpayers????I think its already been polled that Americans DO NOT trust the government.

    • joyandpeace88256

      According to Hillary. What difference does it make. taxpayers continue to have no say so in how their money is spent anyway.

      • Aaron Hughes

        ^ As long as Americans continue to re-elect untrustworthy representatives we will have no say.

    • djmc993150

      How much does it cost taxpayers if we send an untrained military to war? Ask them when we have to reinstitute the draft because the regular professional military is all dead.

  • terri monroe

    The exercise was an overrall success but they haven’t yet conducted an after-action review? So how do they know it was a success? Bottom line, when you try to sneak to do something as large as this on American soil and you refuse to give the governors any information so they have to keep an eye on Big Gubmint, then you can’t be trusted. I don’t expect Obama will ever give us any info until he really does strike. He has proven he can’t be trusted!

    • Capiscan

      we’ve had these exercises before – you just didn’t know about them.

      • Laddyboy

        Capiscan: That is the problem; SECRECY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! “That which was done in darkness, SHALL be revealed.”

        • michael

          there was nothing secrete about any of these or other military exercises in the past! the difference this time you you tin foil hats freaked out because you are all nut jobs and per usual it turned out to be no different than our military had done a hundred times in the past.

    • michael

      so when every other president did the same thing and the military conducted the same exercises you had no issues with it because……..

      • terri monroe

        I have a problem with any president that sneaks to do anything and when asked doesn’t give any information to the governor or the people when asked. Obama has proven time and again that he can’t be trusted. He has admitted the constitution is in his way!

        • michael

          what was sneaky about this? Are you out of your mind?? They held meetings with the public to discuss any concerns!! You want sneaky? How about Reagan sneaking in cocaine and selling weapons to iran and getting busted!! Iran Contra much??? stfu

          • terri monroe

            You should be talking about Libya and how illegal Obama was on that. Selling arms to Syria. Yeah, keep talking imbecile.

  • Bolt Upright

    Me Jade Helm. Hard. Firm. Thick. Women. Love. Me.

  • Rob Apel

    I know there was some cause for concern with the way things are going on in our country and the world today. And we SHOULD monitor what our government is doing and keep a watchful eye on them. But all of that talk of it turning into something bad and military take over was just EXTRELY FAR FETCHED! The military has done exercises, big and small for a VERY long time. The only thing all of that Jade Helm talk did was to belittle anybody who warns of any REAL problems in the future. They made conspiracy nuts look like, well, nuts.

    • djmc993150

      while i find the JH conspirators nut jobs. you have to wonder if the reason the media played it up was to get that exact effect.

      • Lance Lucius

        While I have a hard time believing anything this POS Omuslime does is anything for the good of the Country, a little paranoid is a good thing. If you were not in on the planning, and of high rank, there is little likelyhood that you know why this training event happened. You will never know what the results were, and why or when it may be implemented. So calling people nut jobs is your opinion without fact. However your right to have an opinion is absolute.

        • terri monroe

          You’re absolutely right, Lance. Those that don’t keep an eye on the socialist are the ones that will be surprised. Obama has proven over and over again that he can’t be trusted.

    • djmc993150

      kind of like how they try to tie all anti-obama people as “birthers”.. discredit the whole by highlighting the few nut jobs.

  • Glen Key

    Geez, in the 70’s they called it Reforger. I was a part of it during the late 70’s. During that time period it was a mass movement of troops from CONUS to Europe for “war-exercises”, otherwise known as “War-games”. It keep the military ready for anything. The only difference is that back then we didn’t have these multimedia sites, Al Gore hadn’t even thought up the internet yet.

  • VietVET

    the Military would never back the POS sitting n the White House,,,,,thank GOD!

    • ULTROS

      That’s why they are trying to recruit illegals.

      • Laddyboy

        ULTROS: read my response to “jerry”.

    • terri monroe

      Not according to some soldiers I talked to. They said about half would. None should if they would read their oath again. So don’t turn your back on whatever Obama is up to.

  • jerry

    You conspiracy clowns need to go sit down.

    • Lance Lucius

      Follow your own advice, liberal clown.

      • jerry

        Lance lucius. You conservative conspiracy fools swore up and down president obama was taking over texas. Hes gonna take our guns, secret tunnels under walmart. It never ends. The lack of common sense and intellectual curiosity with the far right is amazing

    • Laddyboy

      jerry: Remember ‘b.obama’ stated in one of his speaches early in his occupation of OUR White House that “We need a private army”. ‘b.obama’ has been importing his “private army since he got into office. REMEMBER!!!!

      • ULTROS

        The rest are on the way. “Syrian” refugees.

      • jerry

        Lol. Where is that army. Be specific. I need numbers, locations, etc. . I can wait

  • Ted Lewis

    There has been movement of people and equipment sense before this ever started! And things are being moved around TODAY! If it’s not anything to think about? Why has the UN stated they are extending Jade Helm 15. And putting all aspects of it under their control! Yes, said that on their website. I just wonder.

  • Nunnyah Biz

    “At this time, we do not have any lessons learned to share since we have
    not yet conducted an after-action review of the exercise”

    I would’ve thought that the lesson “Don’t Mess With The American People”
    would’ve been Quite OBVIOUS!…………………………..I wonder if they’ll “share” that!

    And, “nothing Happened” because they knew they had been “caught” before it started, so they switched to plan B!

    Congrats to all of the REAL media outlets that had the intestinal fortitude to report the TRUTH!

  • AmericanDuckie

    I’m sure Alex Jones will be first to remind his following that the exercises are over and not one American was assaulted by our Special Forces right?
    Yeah right.
    Lord I’m glad some folks in this country still trust those who put their butts on the line for the rest of us. Too bad though that it also showed how many people have no clue.


      It isn’t the SOLDIERS who are not trusted…

      • AmericanDuckie

        I know no one trusts otraitor and others for good reason, but a lot of people put our Soldiers in the same box.

        • SFTOBEY

          That IS unfortunate. I know there are many, MANY patriotic soldiers who would refuse an un-Constitutional order. Unfortunately, there may also be many young, inexperienced, and ignorant (thanks to the destruction of the education system in the U.S.) soldiers who would simply do as they are told. That would be what many are afraid of.

          • AmericanDuckie

            I can understand that, but people need to think. This whole exercise was typical and is done all the time. Too many people have no clue and were too quick to question the loyalty of some of our best. It’s one thing to keep people informed of what our government is doing- but to make a normal training exercise like this out to be what guys like Jones were claiming, is ignorant, dangerous and pathetic.

          • SFTOBEY


    • terri monroe

      If you had a clue, you would know that it’s not necessarily those that put their butts on the line that we don’t trust. We don’t trust Obama. He’s proven he can’t be trusted. Aside from that, I talked to soldiers that stated to be aware, they are desensitizing the masses so they can hit later. Also, about half the military would go along with it and the other half wouldn’t. Because the half that would, forgot the oath they took. So yeah, I don’t trust Obama or his cohorts!

      • AmericanDuckie

        I’ve had a clue for over 7 years.
        People seem to think this was a bunch of new recruits on these exercises.
        I understand the traitor clearly, and the transformation of the military along with the country. That said- too many people still put Special Forces soldiers in the same box with Otraitor when they questioned the motives of those who participated in this exercise without thinking that they’ve trained like this for years before Otraitor came into office. And it’s not to round up Americans.

  • Swed.

    Big lies:
    I am from the Government and here to help.
    I will respect you in the morning
    Honest this will not hurt.
    Take this it is good for you.
    You can keep your Plan and your Doctor.
    The list keeps growing.
    So when will congress stand for the American people, probably never. Arrest all try, convict and then execute.

  • Patriot47

    Practice and de-sensitizing us.

  • Ghern Blanstien

    Distraction, shiny objects for the masses. The military has been conducting this exercise for years and continues to do this on a smaller scale year around. So what’s different with this one? Knuckleheads all falling for the distraction and slight of hand. The world is crumbling around you and you’re worried about our SOF guys enforcing martial law? The last guys on earth who would participate in such a thing. They put this out there on purpose you should be worried about what they aren’t publicizing. All the back room deals they are making w the devil to sell our Republic to the new world order. No wonder this Republic is so jacked up. Little puppies chasing the light on the ground from the masters flashlight. So cute.

  • ArmyBrat

    LISTEN UP JERRY! You are a FOOL! Any citizen of this country who says they trust the Traitor in the White House should pull their head out of their ass. Legitimate training exercise my ass! This friggin bum is allowing our country to be invaded on all sides and idiots like you are FRIGGIN ok with it. But NO, NO CHRISTIANS ALLOWED! NO ROOM FOR THEM HERE. You should be locked up for treason and for being STUPID! Yeah Right, our GIs are training for anything. Bullshit! Skippy O has already purged our forces to the point that we are weaker now than we have ever been. People like you are traitors to this country and you don’t deserve to be free. I’m done!

  • Lili J

    Obama Administration has PURGED OVER 100 military leaders since being in office!

    • Da’BULL

      WRONG. Its over 200+ Generals, Admirals, and not counting Senior Enlisted by who-knows-how-many. Several Thousands have been removed either by attrition, or force out. So far.

      • Lili J

        I keep trying to post a response to your post, but censorship is alive and well in America and my response is not being allowed… Thanks for your post!

  • Doug Snodgrass

    Well the AAR will reveal the information flow, reporting, reactions, and observations of the American people in What areas. Good or bad depending on mindset of the analysist.

  • David Cossell

    maybe state’s reluctance to allow federal control of state and local law enforcement. may have changed things. What ever the intention. The public wasn’t prepared. And deserves a explanation, why our lifes were disrupted in such a unusual way.
