The Commander of United States Army Special Operation Command (USASOC) seeks a written invitation and approval from local officials to conduct Realistic Military Training (RMT) within their jurisdictions for joint military exercise, JADE HELM 15 (JH15)
This brings to mind a disturbing dream I had a few years ago. I worked for Wal Mart and we were paid to be participants in a government training exercise where we'd be put in a detention camp inside a store. Once we were in, it was disturbing since they took it seriously and you couldn't leave.
Interestingly, a thread posted on Above Top Secret, Jan. 17, 2008 titled, “Is the government and Walmart working together to build detention centers?” questions just that.
Here are the links to find permits in each area accompanied by the address for each Walmart that is closing.
Permits for the city of Tulsa
(Hit the red icon at the top of the page and add permit layers)
Address: 207 S. Memorial, 74112
That's funny, NO PERMITS have been issued. Not one.
So they're going to have "armed", unidentified military people in civilian clothing popping off blank rounds unexpectedly in the midst of the local populations in a realistic training exercise?
What happens when a civilian pulls his concealed revolver and empties it into one of these training participants?
Maybe I'm interpreting this wrong.
An overnight brawl in an Arizona Walmart parking lot has left one person dead and two others wounded, including a police officer who was shot in the leg. The Arizona Department of Public Safety says a Cottonwood police officer was shot just before midnight last night as he and a group of officers tried to break up the melee.
The incident began when a Walmart employee noticed that a large group of people were in one of the store's restrooms, department spokesman Bart Graves says. The employee was shoved by one of the suspects when she tried to enter, he says. By the time Cottonwood police arrived, the group had made its way to the parking lot. Officers were immediately attacked and there was a struggle for an officer's gun.
One suspect was fatally shot, a second suspect was shot in the abdomen, and a Walmart employee also suffered cuts on his arm. The wounded 31-year-old officer underwent surgery and is expected to recover. There were a total of three gunshots, and it was still unclear last night who fired the shots, Graves says.
Seven officers suffered minor injuries, including lacerations and bruising. Seven suspects were taken into custody and were later booked on charges that included aggravated assault, attempted homicide, and obstruction, per Graves.
It's unclear if everyone in the group is part of the same family. The department says in a statement that they were driving a Chevrolet Suburban with an Idaho license plate. "We don't know who they are at this point," Graves says. "They are not cooperating."

I have no idea how plausible this is, but is it at all possible that closing these stores is part of some shifty tax dodge of some sort? By laying off the staff, and closing the premises for business, is there any way at all that doing this could affect the amount of tax Walmart pays?

I have been a retail manager for 25 years and have been through several store closings. A company that decides to shutter some unprofitable locations do not give those stores only 5 hours notice. They are given 4-6 weeks to sell off their inventory and clean out. A 5 hour notice means some emergency type event is taking place. What that event is, I don't know.
We knew our store might be closing 3 months out. Our District Manager and all the Store managers knew this, and were told, and all the employees found out down the line..
I wonder if anyone buying into this, has ever worked retail before.

But why april? Most company fiscal years begin september And the tax year january.
This may seem far out to some but I no longer trust anything said by my gov and trust no one.
So far, we have accurately deduced that a government
which constantly rants how it needs to protect the people of
the United States. Is willfully creating a situation that puts
those people needlessly in harms way. As if they don't have
training facilities for every scenario. Why risk americans lives so
precariously if it so important to protect them?
I fear at some point, we are in for rude awakening. And it may not be
involving this exercise. But our gov't does nothing but stab us in the
back. Over and over and over and over...
