Caught On Tape: National Guard Troops Patrol California City, Conduct New Jersey "Homeland Response Drill"

Tyler Durden's picture

Late last week, when we covered the various signs that "something big" may be coming, we discussed the one "exercise that people have really been buzzing about" - operation "Jade Helm", an “unconventional warfare exercise” during which the states Texas and Utah will be designated as hostile territory.

As previously profiled, "Jade Helm is a challenging eight-week joint military and Interagency (IA) Unconventional Warfare (UW) exercise conducted throughout Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado,” according to an unclassified military document announcing the training drill, which runs from July 15 through September 15.

Multiple branches of the US military, including Green Berets, Navy Seals, and the 82nd Airborne Division, will participate in the 8-week long exercise, which may result in “increased aircraft in the area at night.”

Troops will be tasked with honing advanced skills in “large areas of undeveloped land with low population densities,” and will work alongside “civilians to gain their trust and an understanding of the issues.”

The exercise, in which some participants will be “wearing civilian clothes and driving civilian vehicles,” lists Texas and Utah as “hostile" territory.

The proposed theater of operations of Operation Jade Helm is shown on the map below:


So while there are still three months until Jade Helm officially opens, various documented reports of substantial national guard drills and troop exercises are starting to trickle in early. As Paul Joseph Watson notes, the first documented proof of National Guard drills comes from Ontario, California where National Guard troops can be seen patrolling residential streets and practicing traffic control.

In the video troops, followed by a humvee, are seen marching close to an elementary school and single family homes.

“I just watched it again and recognized the low block wall and the elementary school! It was right there where my sister and her husband live! OMG how frightening!” one YouTube commenter responded, while others insisted the patrols were a routine occurrence.


However, another respondent insisted that the patrol was not normal.


“During the last few seconds I got a quick glimpse of my sister and brother-in-laws house on Fuschia. Ave,” wrote the commenter.”That motorcycle was parked almost in front of their house. They told me they saw this procession going on from their front yard. They have lived in that house for 30 or so yrs and this is the first time they have seen this type of thing in their neighborhood. Might be a common thing to do their training someplace else but not in that area.”

This is not the first such clip: a disturbing video out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida last month also showed military and law enforcement practicing the internment of citizens during martial-law style training.

Meanwhile on the eastern US easboard, the PostStar reports that nearly 600 Army and Air National Guard forces from New Jersey and New York "are preparing for the worst."

They are participating in a homeland response force drill at New Jersey's Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst on Friday.


The troops specialize in rescue, security, decontamination and medical treatment.


The units will train to rapidly assess and identify a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear incident.

Of course, the bigger concern is that the real motive behind this major national guard exercise is not a focus on a "defensive" drill from an outside threat, but one dealing with a domestic threat.

How is that possible, some would say? Could the national guard really be preparing for a confrontation with the US population?

Unfortunately the answer is yes, as we reported last August in "Under What Conditions Can The US Army Engage Citizens: The Army's "Civil Disturbances" Primer" which lays out not only when the US Army (and national guard) can engage the US population, but lays out clearly the protocol under which the US army is specifically permitted to engage in "PSYOPs" against the US population.

Here are the salient points, as reported previously, from the primer which begins with the umbrella statement:

Civil unrest may range from simple, nonviolent protests that address specific issues, to events that turn into full-scale riots. Gathering in protest may be a recognized right of any person or group, regardless of where U.S. forces may be operating. In the United States, this fundamental right is protected under the Constitution of the United States...

"Protected" it may be, but as usual, the interpretation of the Constitution is in the eye of the beholder, or more appropriately, gun holder. Because shortly thereafter we further read the following:

The Constitution of the United States, laws, regulations, policies, and other legal issues limit the use of federal military personnel in domestic support operations. Any Army involvement in civil disturbance operations involves many legal issues requiring comprehensive legal reviews. However, federal forces are authorized for use in civil disturbance operations under certain circumstances.

What circumstances? For the answer we turn to section, 2-8. To wit:

The Constitution of the United States provides two exceptions for which the Posse Comitatus Act does not apply. These exceptions are based upon the inherent right of the U.S. government to ensure the preservation of public order and to carrying out governmental operations within its territorial limits by force, if necessary. These two exceptions are—

  • Emergency authority. A sudden and unexpected civil disturbance, disaster, or calamity may seriously endanger life and property and disrupt normal governmental functions to such an extent that local authorities cannot control the situation. At such times, the federal government may use military force to prevent the loss of life or wanton destruction of property and to restore government functions and public order. In these circumstances, federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances (see DODD 3025.18).
  • Protection of federal property and functions. When the need for the protection of federal property or federal functions exists, and duly constituted local authorities are unable to, or decline to provide adequate protection, federal action, including the use of military forces, is authorized.

2-9. Laws passed by the U.S. congress include four exceptions to the Posse Comitatus Act. With the first three laws discussed below (10 USC 331–333) there is a prerequisite that the President must take personal action, including the issuance of a proclamation calling upon insurgents to disperse and retire peaceably within a limited time. The four exceptions, based on law are—

  • 10 USC 331. When a state is unable to control domestic violence and they have requested federal assistance, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.
  • 10 USC 332. When ordinary enforcement means are unworkable due to unlawful obstructions or rebellion against the authority of the United States, use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.
  • 10 USC 333. When a state cannot or will not protect the constitutional rights of the citizens, due to domestic violence or conspiracy to hinder execution of State or Federal law, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.
  • House Joint Resolution 1292. This resolution directs all departments of the U.S. government, upon request of the Secret Service, to assist in carrying out its statutory duties to protect government officials and major political candidates from physical harm.

In other words, if and when the US Armed Forces decide that rioting infringes upon any of these exclusions, then the constitution no longer applies and the use of lethal force becomes a viable option against US citizens.

It gets worse, because whereas one would expect that a "Constitutional expert" such as the president, Barack Obama would be the one tasked with interpreting if and when the Constitution no longer applies, the primer is quite explicit in handing over responsibility to "federal military commanders":

... federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbance.

So should Obama resume his vacation even as things in Missouri escalate dramatically, and be "unreachable", it may well come to pass that Obama's opinion will be irrelevant not only whether the National Guard should be unleashed in Ferguson, but whether Posse Comitatus is suddenly null and void.

The good news: the use of lethal force is not the only option the US Army would have if and when it engages with the population. US citizens may simply  be herded into "temporary internment camps" for reindoctrination purposes under the supervision of PSYOP Officer (no really, they used that word), as follows from the Army's FM3-39.40 "Internment and Resettlment Operations" manual:

Internment and Resettlement (I/R) operations facilitate the ability to conduct rapid and decisive combat operations; deter, mitigate, and defeat threats to populations that may result in conflict; reverse conditions of human suffering; and build the capacity  of a foreign government to effectively care for and govern its population. This includes capabilities to conduct  shaping operations across the spectrum of military operations to mitigate and defeat the underlying conditions  for conflict and counter the core motivations that result in support to criminal, terrorist, insurgent, and other destabilizing groups. I/R operations also include the daily incarceration of U.S. military prisoners at facilities  throughout the world.


An adaptive enemy will manipulate populations that are hostile to U.S. intent by instigating mass civil disobedience, directing criminal activity, masking their operations in urban and other complex terrain, maintaining an indistinguishable presence through cultural anonymity, and actively seeking the traditional sanctuary of protected areas as defined by the rules of land warfare. Such actions will facilitate the dispersal of threat forces, negate technological overmatches, and degrade targeting opportunities. Commanders will use technology and conduct police intelligence operations to influence and control populations, evacuate detainees and, conclusively, transition rehabilitative and reconciliation operations to other functional agencies. The combat identification of friend, foe, or neutral is used to differentiate combatants from noncombatants and friendly forces from threat forces.

Presenting army camps, hopefully not in a city near you:

Detainee facilities, an important planning consideration, are treated in the same basic fashion as any base camps. The same basic planning considerations are taken into  account. Some detainee facilities will be subordinate to a larger base camp but they may also be at a separate location.

Of course, none of this will be needed if the Army's Psyops work as required:

The PSYOP officer in charge of supporting I/R operations serves as the special staff officer responsible for PSYOP. The PSYOP officer advises the military police commander on the psychological impact of military police or MI actions to prevent misunderstandings and disturbances by detainees and DCs. The supporting I/R PSYOP team has two missions that reduce the need to divert military police assets to maintain security in the I/R facility.  The team—

  • Assists the military police force in controlling detainees and DCs.
  • Introduces detainees or DCs to U.S. and multinational policy.
  • Develops PSYOP products that are designed to pacify and acclimate detainees or DCs to accept U.S. I/R facility authority and regulations.
  • Gains the cooperation of detainees or DCs to reduce the number of guards needed.
  • Identifies malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders within the facility who may try to organize resistance or create disturbances.
  • Develops and executes indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes.
  • Identifies political activists.
  • Provides loudspeaker support (such as administrative announcements and facility instructions when necessary).
  • Helps the military police commander control detainee and DC populations during emergencies.
  • Plans and executes a PSYOP

In other words, if and when the time comes to "override" Posse Comitatus, random US citizens may have two options: i) end up in the US version of a Gulag or, worse, ii) be shot. For now, however, just keep an eye on the various drill videos to get a sense of the US army's preparedness in dealing with "civil disobedience."

This is the kind of shit that discredits Zero Hedge.

Zero Hedge can post 100 outstanding articles re HFT, bullion, central bank capture, other agency capture, rigged markets, Citadel, flash crashes, bubbles everywhere - yet this Paul Watson/Infowars doom porn destroys all that credibility when objective, reasonable people visit this site and see this absolute rubbish & horseshit.

If a single weird, odd, unlawful thing occurs in the wake of Jade Helm, I'll eat my words publicly and apologize, but I am absolutely confident this won't be necessary.

Doom pornographers such as Paul Watson & Infowars have predicted 840 of the last 0 crises with their bizarre, insane, ranting, conspiracy bullshit.

And for the record, I'M NOT SANGUINE ABOUT THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE, having said that were going to see a 1930s/2000/2008 style disruption in the U.S. and global economy writ large (with bond, equity & other major asset bubbles being absolutely blown apart - if you have to ask how we can have simultaneous bond AND equity market bubbles, you haven't been paying attention to radical central bank coordinated insanity of the last 6 years).

It's not as if I'm optimistic, as I think that the risk of MENA disintegration/chaos spiraling out of control at a rapidly accelerating pace or the Ukraine conflict leading to a much more serious hot conflict is great (not to mention seeing great risks for conflict between Japan & China over South Sea or a very likely tearing apart or large reshaping of the EU - reshaping as in Grexit, Spexit, Portugrexit, with major losses in Italy & even France possible, as well as huge political unrest in Germany & social you rest in Argentina, Brazil and my number #1 and #2 likely risks - major economic contraction bordering on depressions in Japan & China).

Here's how you know it's not anything to worry about... they (all the controled opposition sources.. including ZH) are trying to make you worry about it.  While you're busy watching over here, they're busy preparing for the thing you'll never see coming over there.  That's how it works.  Bonus points for making everyone into a discredited chicken-little.

Let's stick to a debate instead of ad hominem against ZH - The US military put on a drill preparing for civil unrest.  

Personally I understand, as the fascist dictat understands their gig will be up soon.  Is this in the same realm of worry that the IMF's policy is?  The Fed Reserve policy?  No.  We all understand that the banks are the evil running the fascist society, yet any news that shows truth to power should be accepted on the pages of ZH.

I do not agree. They fear the internet tremendously, because it shows the people, that many, many others share their views and we are not alone, or stupid. While it makes us recognize the MSM point of view, often is the strange, stupid, embarassing view, in the light of the knowledge of the facts of both sides.

Therefore they are about to criminalize "spreading conspiracies".

The huge erosion of trust the plutocratic regime is facing only has happened because of the internet. Take it away and imagine you only have CNN, Fox, Bloomberg or CNBC. It shocks me everyday when I imagine that. And that was the reality ever since big money invented the lie of "free press". It will take lots of time, probably one or two generations, until people will be able to accept, that it was all a huge trick, a lie, a scam. Imagine all the people that died in wars for this regime, in their best believe. That every drop of blood spent, was only for the banksters and not for "freedom" or "Democracy". That these have been the tools for TPTB to plunder the world. This can only be overcome by the next generation(s), not by the old ones. Their world and everything they believed in, would collapse, would turn into a fata morgana.


Sure, there is the danger of distraction and being only passive instead to go out on the streets and organize. But I am convinced that it's an illusion, that fat people will ever start to move. And as long as the broad mass has something to lose, it will run even faster, not to fall into the abyss.

The argument with Vietnam war or other mass demonstrations IMO does not hold, because they all had powerful parts of the establishment behind them, or in the case of Vietnam, the Western peace movement was supported by Moscow. Or the Tea Party or the Occupy movements. They are all supported by parts of the establishment.

But a REAL revolution will not take place until unemployed people are becoming thinner, and not fatter. But until that will happen, the internet is opening more and more people'S eyes about the fata morgana called Democracy, which in reality is a Plutocracy, we are living in.

''the war in Afghanistan is the fourth time the British sent invading armies into that country, invasions always ending in defeat or disaster. Although we are ‘peace-loving’ and the Afghans are ‘warlike’, so far they have never actually invaded Britain, and yet British governments claim, quite hilariously, that British troops are in Afghanistan to protect Britain’s streets. The geo-strategic dimensions of Empire today are very similar to those of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.''

"The huge erosion of trust the plutocratic regime is facing only has happened because of the internet. Take it away and imagine you only have CNN, Fox, Bloomberg or CNBC."

Which is why you should own a short wave radio.

In the before time, in the long long ago (BTI - Before The Internet) you could tune in to Radio Moscow, the BBC, Deutsche Welle, Christian Science Monitor, and of course, Voice of America. You also had Herbert W. Armstrong, a powerful voice in the independent Christian community.

Of course it was all propaganda, but much of it was true - the most effective propaganda being to reveal uncomfortable truths not being reported in the target nation(s).  Radio Moscow was especially good at that, so you could find out what TPTB didn't want you to hear by tuning in, and using your critical faculties to discern the likely truth.  You could never be quite sure of course, but that's always been true - today more than ever I would say.

We used to record these programs then mix them into sound collages and what was called "industrial music" and "techno".  Some of our material was played on university radio, another source of independent news back in the day.  You also had independent FM and Pirate Radio, that presented alternate views.

If you have a predisposition to be informed you will always find a way.  I imagine if the internet were shut down the airwaves would light up with all sorts of alternate programming.  Just turn the dial till you find what you're looking for.

Oh yeah... try and make your antenna as inocuous as you can - like a clothes line or something.  They'll be looking for those.

IMO Jade Helm is either training for when things like EBT start to break down, or it is a propaganda peice.  You probably will be correct that nothing unlawful happens (by nothing unlawful, it is assumed that you mean by the military as a whole, not by an individual soldier,) is going to happen, but this sure as hell looks bad.  According to various news sources, the military is going to see if it can operate amongst Americans without being detected.  You don't send an American into an American town to see if he can operate undected to train that person to operate in a foreign country undetected unless you're really dumb.  It had been a while since the US government had its authority challenged until the Bundy Ranch.  That is just one sign among many that the natives are getting restless.  This country is turning into a powder keg, and the government knows it.  When something does blow here, it may very well have some flashy proximate cause, but the ultimate cause will be economic. 


Again, the local popos won't be up to the task if, say, EBT goes away.  The country is dead-ass broke and it has made a lot of promises to feed people.  What happens when it cannot keep those promises?  What happens if social security turns up insolvent ia lot sooner than "predicted?"  That won't be pretty either.  And if the dollar loses reserve currency status and we cannot import as much oil as we do today?  Those are all very real possibilities.  If you were in a high up position and you wanted to keep your power, what would you be doing?

"IMO Jade Helm is either training for when things like EBT start to break down, or it is a propaganda peice."

A bit of both, I imagine.  It sends a message to American people that "the govt. stands ready to protect you" which would resonate with a lot of people given some of the recent chaos we've witnessed, but it also sends a message to Russia that the US is preparing for war.  In that sense, I would compare it to the civil defence drills of the 1960's (duck and cover).  Rounding up dissendents under wartime conditions is de rigueur, so there's that as well.

Don't forget to put the Bundy Ranch incident into the context.  Think about the message that it sends to those people.

1. This is a big "fuck you all" to the Posse Comitatus act. It establishes an unchallenged violation of the law, which can be used as a precedent later if need be.

2. Think of the psychology of punishment. "You just wait until your father gets home!" let imaginations run wild. Watch the alt news crowd and their reaction.

3. Psychology of assent. Mostly for the masses, it's "supporting the troops!" More faux patriotism. Also, "See? They have nothing to hide, they ANNOUNCED it. " Am I the only who remembers they were running a "drill" on 9-11?

4. Operation BOA and Operation LIGHTENING. Perfect cover for disappearances. Perfect cover for anything, really.. Bank shutdown? Part of the "drill". Katrina style gun grabs? Part of the "drill".

5 Related to 4. "Framing the Argument" If they pull somethng and you resiste, you are . "unreasonable" because it's a "drill". If they pull something and you don't, you softly and silently vanish into the night.

When somebody talks about "Mastering the Human Terrain", they are talking about mastering YOU. YOU are part of the "Human Terrain." Saying this is about AfPak, MENA, the Ukraine, or whatever is eyewash, because these areas are culturally and socially utterly different. Be wary.

And you need to be training too, be one of those people stopping for photo ops in front of that APC... 

Identify and catalog specific entry and egress points of the your local variety of APC (for humans, fuel and comms), mobility vulnerabilities around the wheel wells, the standard compliment of jack booted thugs per APC...

Bonus points for getting the jack booted thugs to pose with you without their imperial storm trooper masks and with their name tapes visible.

Double the bonus points if can properly ID the jack booted thugs using, the white pages, or some other external benign/dual-use data source. 

You have to know both the enemy and yourself in order to achieve victory.

Wars, and more importantly, avoiding defeat in war takes huge amounts of preparation, much of which is invisible to the lazy observer, and at most "questionable" to the trained observer.

I was thinking that the marching in that video is an embarrassment, hardly intimidating!  Perhaps these poor young people should request assistance from the drill instructors who trained this fine group of young ladies: 


It's interesting that none of the documentation cited above addresses a scenario where the "insurgency" displaces a nation's own government. Can the writers be unaware that each and every one of the most prominent activist and terrorist groups in the world are state sponsored (e.g., ISIS, Al Qaeda, Al-Shiboob, Al-Nusra, Ukrainian Banderans, etc.)?!? 

I would be wary of Counter Jade Helm as well. Can you imagine a neater way to get your hooks into prospective dissidents for the purpose of engaging a new controlled opposition and harvesting candidates for a new crop of false flags?

The American government is acutely aware of how easy it is to "regime change" almost any government they want. 

They're scared.  Why do you think they bought 2 billion rounds of 40 cal hollow point?

The PNAC revolutionaries need an event big enough to invoke the continuity of government laws passed after their New Pearl Harbor.

This is necessary to manufacture the consent for more revolutionary change and do away with the US Constitution once and for all.

Jade Helm is training for an event of this type.

They're the National Guard, not the Honor Guard. What did you expect from weekend warriors, obliques and coordinated weapon throwing contests? This isn't Major fucking Payne, dude.

In all honesty, I see nothing to be afraid of in that march. Hell, it's hardly anything worse than what you'd see in basic. They've even got the yellow protective vests on the road guards. It's a joke march.

Other videos showing troops dragging people off in nets, however, is very, very disturbing. THAT'S the training that should be frightening to Americans.
