There are times in life when we need to know when to step aside and let others do the talking. This is that time. The Common Sense Show, has been deluged with communications which detail abnormally high amounts of troop and equipment movement across the United States in preparation for Jade Helm 15. Along the same lines, we are hearing from people who have relatives in Special Operations that very concerned about what is coming.
The following represents a very small cross-section of email notifications from Americans all across the country and they are highly concerned with what they are discovering about Jade Helm.
This article begins with a description of an encounter between the Health Advisor to The Common Sense Show, Katy Whelan and a Lt. Colonel from Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora, Colorado.
Katy Whelan and the Lt. Colonel
Katy Whelan serves as the medical advisor and reporter for The Common Sense Show. As such, she is privy to much of the information on topics which we have not yet published for one reason or another. With regard to Jade Helm 15, Katy has had access to some of the most sensitive information that is in our possession. Therefore, when Katy decides to assert herself in the field by confronting an official about Jade Helm, she can do so with an air of authority.
This past weekend, Katy had occasion to confront a Lt. Colonel Gallegos in a chance public meeting and the following represents the summary of her encounter.
“On Saturday April 11, I (Katy Whelan) was coming out of a Denver area Restaurant and saw a National Guard officer in the parking lot and decided to stop and chat with him about the Jade Helm training drill going on across the country”.
“I introduced myself to a Lt Colonel Gallegos from Buckley Air Force base in Aurora, Colorado. Below is a summary of the exchange”.
Katy: “I am aware of the Jade Helm drill and I am concerned as to why this drill was being conducted”.
Gallegos: (He was caught off guard and didn’t have a clear answer as he stumbled around for words and his body language was extremely nervous). “We have had drills like this before, like one we had before one 10 years ago”.
Katy: “There has never been a drill to this extent in size and scope”!
Gallegos: (His body language, again, was extremely nervous as he stumbled to find the right words as he chose to look down, smile and concede that I was correct on that point). “Yeah, that is true but it’s not a big deal”. (Editor’s Note: Not a big deal? Various factions of the military are preparing to impose martial law in the Jade Helms drills while extracting dissidents, and death squads will be planted in order to practice their “infiltration techniques” and this is “not a big deal”? This is an act of war against the American people and it is not a big deal?).
Katy: “I know the Jade Helm15 drill is in over 30 states”.
Gallegos: (He became increasingly nervous) and asked “How did I know this (as if I should not have this information)”?
Katy: “Isn’t this a joint a joint military and national guard operation and doesn’t this violate posse comitatus”.
Gallegos: “No, that is not true because the National Guard will be the only ones running the drills”. (Editor’s note: This is a bold faced lie uttered by Lt. Col. Gallegos! On the original Jade Helm 15 document, Special Operations Forces state that the 82nd Airborne and Special Operations Forces such as the Green Berets, Navy Seals will be a part of the drill. Therefore, Gallegos knows what he is participating in is illegal and is not limited to the National Guard. We further know that the Department of Defense is hiring people to play the role of detainees and incarcerated Americans under martial law).
Katy: “Then why, if it is a joint operation, why would the National Guard have the authority to be the organization to be running the drill”?
Gallegos: (Like a kid with his hand in the cookie jar, the nervousness of the body language was peaking as he stumbled around looked down and was rubbing his keys nervously). Katy took that to mean that her challenging statement was true.
“But nothing illegal will be done in the drill”, muttered Gallegos. (Editor’s Note: Despite the fact that the forces of Jade Helm will be extracting people without due process of law, and Gallegos thinks there is nothing wrong with this?).
Katy: “Our current administration is violating the US constitution every day, so how can you guarantee that the orders coming down would be any different”?
Gallegos: (Again, displaying nervous body language as exemplified by looking down to avoid contact and nervously smiling, he stated, “I assure you it would all be legal. The Governor would be in command of the drill as only the National Guard would be conducting the drills and I cannot say much more than that”. (Editor’s Note: Since the passage of the John Warner Defense bill, the civilian authority exercised by the National Guard was transferred from the Governor of a state to the President and we are supposed to believe that a Lt. Colonel in the National Guard would be ignorant to that fact?).
Katy: “Isn’t Jade Helm about the extraction drills? In other words, what does the military know that we don’t know to train for this type of operation?”
Gallegos: (He further displayed more nervous body language to an incredible degree as he became increasingly and nervously evasive). “I assure you that it is all on the up and up and legal”.
Katy: “If there was an illegal order that came down from the chain of command, what would you do”?
Gallegos: “That would be up to the individual to decide”.
Katy: She pressed the point and again asked “Why would we need an extraction drill and what are they specifically training for?
Gallegos: He remained evasive and said “it is all legal”.
Implications of the Gallegos Encounter
Katy’s take away was that Lt Col. Gallegos was completely taken by surprise and was shocked that she knew as much as she did and he did not know how to respond.
At one time, I was confident that American soldiers would not fire upon American citizens, but Gallegos weak defense in which he justifies the drill in his mind, accompanied by either his gross ignorance or his gross distortion of the truth (you decide), is indeed very concerning.
In the past week, The Common Sense Show has received over 200 emails with either accounts of massive troop and equipment movements within the United States, or the emails were from family members or friends of Special Operations Forces who are very nervous about the implications of Jade Helm.
Since the mainstream media will not effectively cover this and are engaged in the obfuscation of the truth, I thought I would share a brief representation of the 200+ emails received on the topic by The Common Sense Show.
Massive Troop and Equipment Movements
My wife and I went up to Idaho Falls to visit grandchildren. When we got to North Salt Lake we were both surprised to see the train of tanks and armored vehicles sided along the tracks.
My phone (with camera) were in the back seat and I wasn’t able to get it in time … Really enjoyed your article ‘Jade Helms
Use of Death Squads’
Great show and website. You are spot on.
Retired Army Vet (Former MP 21 years active duty, and region 15 leader for Oathkeepers) here in Western North Carolina.
A little less than 2 weeks ago on a Wednesday evening at about 20:30 we had an overflight of our home of a UH-60 Blackhawk. Running lights were on. Maybe 120 Knots North to South.. Very unusual to see a UH-60 here especially on a weeknight. My wife remarked how I knew it was one before it got to us. I have many hours in and around them. Spent 4 years in the 10th Mountain Division along with 5 overseas tours including OIF.
Yesterday-Two things. I live in a rural area in the mountains near some state parks. I passed a HEMMIT fueler headed west into the mountains. Very odd as it was headed away from the town. Could’ve been the reserves or NG monthly drill but I never saw one here before. It was woodland camo pattern like the old days.
Also yesterday afternoon I heard more than one UH-60 travel nearby the town of Hendersonville, NC. I was unable to get eyes on due to some trees and terrain but I knew the sounds to be Blackhawks. Didn’t get a direction of travel..
We need to establish a virtual command post or website to track these reports. Does one already exist? Is there something else I can do to assist you in getting the word out? I have NO fear of them since I’m HAPPILY on ALL of their lists anyway. We need to counter them and be vigilant in spotting them. I’ve briefed my family of the situation and what to look for. The more eyes we get working the better chance we have to shine the light on this situation. I think that our beloved Republic is now dead and gone. Thanks for your great research and diligence.
Just thought to add to your articles on Jade Helm,
on this past Thursday, My husband and I saw 9
huge planes National Guard (the kind that carry
troops and tanks, I’m thinking out of Martinsburg,
- WV) flying low, within 15 minutes apart. They were
flying West to a known Fema camp. I’m not saying that’s
where they were headed, just in the direction. Have you
heard anything or know anything about this story?
Typically I keep a low profile given some of my activities but thought I’d drop you a quick note. I’ve commented quite a few times on various essays you’ve written and while I agree with you mostly have had some differences with what you. On Jade Helm, well, I think it’s one of the most important issues you’ve written about.
My brother is retired from US Army Special Forces. He was a Green Beret for nearly 25 years with multiple deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. He now works for a military contractor at _____. I don’t usually talk about certain things with him because I don’t want to jeopardize his clearance which is pretty high. Yesterday I finally asked him – “What about Jade Helm”. He paused for a moment and said just a few words – “I’m very concerned”. And then went on to describe how much money will be spent and how it may play out. I live in rural Maricopa County which may see some people deployed here. I told him it would be interesting to see what happened if I encountered anyone and confronted them about what they were doing. I’ve been around these guys enough to know who they are. He simply said – “These people are so brainwashed and most have a chip on their shoulder. Be careful or you could get the shit beaten out of you.” I hung up the phone and just shook my head.
Sometimes I get concerned about all the “prepper porn” sites and misinformation out there that is simply another mechanism of fomenting fear. However, Jade Helm is an authentic exercise and could be a turning point in history. My brother said he’d never seen anything like it from a planning and implementation perspective. Furthermore, there is only one reason for it and I’m sure you can guess what that is – the total subjugation of the American people. As I commented yesterday a lot of attention has to start being paid to the people who will actually carry this out. Shaming those in the military publicly. I challenged my own brother yesterday and he got the message.
Russians and Chinese Troops On American Soil: Blue Helmets Anyone?
We have a group of Chinese here in Hannibal MO, the Mark Twain tourist town. This is a small town of about 40,000 residents. It is odd, to say the least.
I tried to talk to some of them about ducks and duck eggs, as they do love those things. They speak barely any English, and their school-age children do not speak English. They seem hostile and did not want to talk. Their children were making fun of Americans openly. (Editor’s Note: Sleeper cell?).
I know you have covered Russians being in Gatlinburg, TN. in big numbers. It is true. The locals hate the Russians because they are so aloof. What you may not know is there have been sightings of Russian soldiers at the base of the Smoky Mtns. by local residents. They park in their white vans and proceed to change into Russian military uniforms in the parking lot. We think they go on military missions in the hills. Some of us think that the Russians are boarding trucks that are stored in the Mtns because they have been seen on remote roads in trucks in full Russian uniforms by people illegally hunting. Yeah that is right, we have been banned from hunting in the area by the Forest Service. Many of us think that they are practicing to invade the area.
Love your radio show. Please keep reporting on this
Hello Dave,just wanted to let you know last week on Saturday my buddy who is a prepper and ex military called me. He lives off the grid here in AZ, told me that a flight of 8 A10 Warthogs were flying in formation over his property. One of them broke formation and headed right for him. This guy has been in serious fire fights in the middle east. He really thought they were gonna open up on him. It didn’t but then a second one broke formation and also did a run on him. After there run they did evasive maneuvers, like they were avoiding ground fire. Please keep the intel coming in.
I think I played basketball against you in college. I played at Rockmont College, in Lakewood, and now the college is known as Colorado Christian. Anyway, I am pretty sure that this is you. The reason I am writing to you is because my brother in law is in the Navy Seals and trains recruits in California. He was here last week and I showed him your articles. He said that he will be a part of Jade Helm beginning June and they are absolutely going to be pulling actors out of their homes in what you referred to as extraction drills. He is very, very nervous about this. He said that he did not enlist to do this to American citizens. I asked him if the Red list thing is true would his people kill Americans? He said that was probably true and that is why he is concerned. Please do not use my name because I don’t want get him in trouble.
Dave, located just NW of Perry, GA is an Urban Warfare Training Facility. It is just west of I-75, behind the Guardian Center. Access is restricted and is constantly patrolled. Several weeks ago low level insertions were being made using Blackhawk Helicopters. Standard military type procedures were employed. I watched from alongside the road. I served 25 years in the military and retired in 1993. I know what is going on and am preparing for it. I’ll either E&E or DIP. Not going to surrender without a hellava fight.
A secret like this is too big to keep quiet. However, the only remaining question is whether or not Jade Helm will go live or is it a dress rehearsal for something to come on its heels? Only time will tell. However, it is clear that Jade Helm is an open declaration of war against the American people. There is not one valid reason for this administration to use taxpayer money in order to prepare to go to war against the American people. And how dare they declare Texas and Utah to be “hostile states”?
The following will not happen, but it should: The country needs to rise as one and say no more. Every politician needs to be recalled from office. Every officer who gives orders to carry out Jade Helm needs to be purged from the military. The only thing that is missing from Jade Helm are the Swastika armbands.
