There's video all over youtube of trainloads of military equipment being moved around. I'm not buying this refurbishment either. Refurbishing sounds like disinfo to me. What did they have a recall?

Well, the WalMart right down the street from my house that I visit often is now closed. Thanks, Jade Helm.
Update! We witnessed two more millitary trains. That makes 3 on the same tracks that we have seen, within 4 days. Never in 35 years prior have any of us seen a single one before. The true number is probably double or triple that, as we dont watch the tracks day and night
