However, what you said about the giant roaches does spark a few interesting questions.



All of these stores closing on the same day could imply the "roaches" scenario in some fashion. Perhaps a mutation?



I can see three footers hiding in the day coming out at night suck down a few stockers


We didn't close even one day so 6 months must mean something major!

Sounds like they're pulling a small scale Future Shop shut down.

I believe it was at the end of March or early this month when all Future Shops in Canada (not sure about the US) closed their doors over night and employees found out like everyone else, through the morning news/arriving to locked doors. I think only a handful have been renovated into Best Buy's.

I just want to add, this is neither new or surprising to me.


Or Canadian Target, without the long warning time. I had forgot about Future Shop... but yeah there is a fairly large town near me that had both these stores shut down and many businesses around the largest intersection are shut, including Safeway, Pizza Hut... Starting to look post-apocalyptic out there in small town Canada. But the Wallmart in that town did major renovation, expanding a huge amount and never fully shut, just sectioned it off as need be.

It's against federal law to fire employees for lobbying for a union. So they shut down entire stores for months for "plumbing problems" putting everyone out of work and when they re-open the "sheeple" will presumably be more docile.

It just seems to me the odds would be against this same scenario happening in one store in various states.

Here's my problem with Walmart being involved with the JADE HELM 15 exercise.


Jade Helm Martial Law WW3 Prep Document 1

Over 1,200 service members will participate in JADE HELM 15 throughout Texas to include the training unit, operational support personnel, and opposing force personnel.

Anticipate minimal physical impact on given area due to the large area of operations.

Funding identified for this portion of the exercise will go straight into the economy in the way of supplies, food, fuel, lodging, and services for exercise participants.

Estimated economic impact of JADE HELM is approximately $150,000.00 into the local economy.

www.scribd.com...


What does that mean? Each city gone through will receive funds? There are 16 locations in Texas alone. They would also have to pay Walmart for their time out of business. This thing appears it's going to cost many MILLIONS but it's nice to see they claim an insignificant figure about the cost.

I'm sorry for comin' in late, and asking stupid questions, but;

Where is the connection to Walmart?


Major Military Exercise called JADE HELM 15 going down July 15. Some people wonder if the store closures are somehow related as to be used in the drill somehow because of the odd explanation by Walmart and the actions following the closures.

Basically the country is nervous because of the sad state we are in and this has set off bells no matter how silly it may seem to others.



So...no reason, no real association, just people makin stuff up, and no actual data analysis involved...

I have seen absolutely noting in this thread that could, even remotely, associate Wal-Mart with this "Jade Helm 15" nor indeed anything other than Wal-Mart stupidity...I think what we have her is something more like Wal-Mart trying to quash some employee organization...

Update: Just left the Walmart on Causeway Blvd in Brandon, FL. Looks like they brought over the cashiers from the closed store on Brandon Blvd. All lanes were open (which we all know is RARE).

The bathroom repairs are done at front of store. Lots of isle rearranged. Still huge square walled structure in the middle of produce section. Looks like its blocking off an area being remodeled.

In addition to the Pico Rivera, CA store protests I just found this below. This is the same Walmart in Tulsa that was just closed for "plumbing problems." It's hard slogging but I'm betting there are similar stories connected with all the Walmarts that were just closed. I do know the Tampa area (re: the Brandon Walmart) had/has Walmart employee activism going on.

There were protests nationally today in support of a higher minimum wage. These closings were Monday. Groups trying to unionize Walmart were involved.



A labor group pushing Wal-Mart to pay its workers higher wages is planning nationwide protests at the company’s stores on Black Friday, including at least one Tulsa-area store.
The website created for the protests, blackfridayprotests.org, lists a “Tulsa Rising” event on Black Friday for the Wal-Mart Supercenter at 6625 S. Memorial Drive. The site is also asking for volunteers for similar protests at other Wal-Mart Supercenters and Wal-Mart Neighborhood Markets in the area. The announcement of the planned protests came one day after 23 people were arrested during a protest at a Los Angeles-area Wal-Mart. The California protest blocked traffic at a Pico Rivera intersection and began with a sit-down strike inside the local Wal-Mart, according to the Associated Press.
A group supported by the United Food & Commercial Workers union is demanding a wage of $15 an hour and full-time work for some employees of the nation’s largest retailer

I'm from NJ. Been to Texas. It was really a nice place. I visited Katie and and a section about 20 minutes outside of Houston. I was going on a cruise to Mexico, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. You're right when you say Texas would totally stand up for itself. I could just tell thats how it really is down there lol. But nonetheless a really cool place to visit.
Back to the topic though. The fact that Texas is listed as "hostile" in relation to Jade Helm should in itself be alarming! Why label the state as such if this "exercise" is meant for overseas? Like come on.
This whole Walmart thing is really beginning to turn the wheels in my mind. We need to all stick to LOGICAL reasonings, even if said reasons can be labeled as "doom porn". I'm sorry, but something really does seem very off about this whole thing. I almost feel as though someone jumped the gun, was put in a precarious position, and just blurted out plumbing issues as the reasoning, and all parties involved were forced to play along. This is not a plumbing problem. That's straight BS.

It's so obvious what this is...


They are out of water...There is no water left in any of these locations...so they are closing shop... No magic desalination, no trucking in water...if they can't get it free or subsidized by the community, they're out.

It could be sort of a PsyOp from Walmart to the rest of the millions of employees. Try to organize for a union and this could happen to Your job. No notice, your store could have "plumbing issues" and you will be looking for work. I BET this puts a damper on Walmart employees wanting to organize for better conditions.

This really is in poor taste, Walmart closing and giving employees NO notice to look for work, UNLESS there is something more sinister to this whole thing. That is still making me wonder what is going on.

Walmart is increasing its starting pay in April for retail workers. Maybe they are closing some less-than-productive stores in order to stop the "leaks" of company profits. That could be considered a "plumbing" problem, don'cha think?

Union-backed group takes credit


Once the company's starting pay becomes $9 an hour in April, the average pay for full-time retail workers there will be about $13 an hour. Walmart has previously said that average already stands at $12.94 an hour. The average part-time wage will be about $10 an hour, according to Carol Schumacher, vice president of investor relations for the company. Roughly half of its employees are part-time workers.



OUR Walmart, the union-backed group organizing protests at Walmart, took credit for the company's announcement. "We are so proud that by standing together we won raises for 500,000 Walmart workers, whose families desperately need better pay and regular hours from the company," said Emily Wells, a leader of the group. But she said the improved wages still fell well short of what was needed.

Actually there is a mass mobilization exercise going on in Canada with US troops. Operation Maple Resolve. From what I read it's a Fast Action Response scenario bringing assets east to west.

Not really, Walmart is known for doing this. Its part of their business model .

It basically the same logic as "We don't negotiate with terrorists" well "Walmart doesn't negotiate with Unions" Unions are a terrorist organization going after their profits, in their eyes.

Walmart is very good at projecting the future and willing to sacrifice short term gains for long gains. Hence, they would rather close a store down: either temporary or permanently than to deal with unions across the board.

This sends a message and gets employees against each other to not even try or mention unions unless they ALL want to lose their jobs.

Weird...

I get my meds from Wal-Mart and there is never a sign-in process or a security officer standing in the pharmacy so that is all part of the shut-down.

The question is why? Why are they taking names of people who are trying to get to the pharmacy?

The plumbing excuse is 100% horseshyte.

They are making people sign in to make sure they actually belong there. What if you were some guy just wanting to go in and see whats going on not even having any prescriptions at said store.
