James Tracy on Jade Helm: Drift Towards Martial Law

James Tracy of Memory Hole Blog is a communications ——— at a university that wishes to remain nameless. Tough luck, guys – it’s ——- ——– University ; – )  The faculty, administrators and students there should be proud that they actually have a professor with the courage to think critically about the USA’s drift toward Orwellian tyranny. And they should be ashamed that he’s pretty much the only one.

In this issue, Professor Tracy and I discuss the erosion of civil liberties, creeping martial law, and this summer’s military exercises code-named Jade Helm. We also touch on my being banned from Canada – an apparent tribute to the power of my new book We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo: Free Thinkers Question the French 9/11.

  1. Jade Helm is an acronym for: Joint Assistant for Development and Execution, Helm is an acronym for Homeland Elimination of Local Militias, 15 stands for the year 2015, this has been years in planning.

    1. @Kelley….in my dreams I fantasize that they will actually be on a mission to help this country and it’s citizens. Like, maybe they are on a secret search to find the nuclear material pilfered from Pantex in Amarillo, Texas. Material that was in the decommissioned Davey Crocket rifles. Or maybe they might be on a hunt to ferret out the hidden bases of foreign troops infiltrating this land that we hear of now and then. It would really be a nightmare to find out that they are under the direction of the evil One Worlders, who are out to destroy any opposition to their total takeover. Which would make them all traitors and enemies of the people.

  2. Just yesterday I spoke with a second cousin in a neighboring state, who is an attorney. The discussion led into issues of hearsay and then of civil liberties, etc. When I pointed out to her that Murphy’s bill might pass in Congress, that allows our government to imprison people labeled with a ‘diagnosis’ that has no empirical evidence (and without any due process to challenge the claims made to justify the label), she said, “Oh no, that won’t happen…it’s just a fringe lobbyist or something.”

    She had no idea how close we are to total tyranny. Americans are in a denial so deep it’s scarier than the tyrants themselves. Or are we just uniformed? Kudos to any academics who undertake to educate the public. Not many honor what was once their true mission anymore.

    1. I was watching Faux News Channel this morning and Judge Jean Pirino suggested that all inmates be injected with a nano chip so that they could be accounted for 24/7 and “they would have been found immediately and any escape would have been futile.”

      This is very disturbing!

      1. Always rolling out a new product, with a new poster child or two for it. And as you pointed out with Cuomo’s visit and his photo ops at this allegedly dangerous venue, I guess there is a spokesman for it.

        The woman employee who befriended one of the prisoners (“Was she in love? Enquiring minds want to know!) is married to another employee of the prison who (bizarrely) is supposed to have supplied the power tools. Um, yeah. For a crafts project, I guess. “Sure boys, just take those saws back to your cells so you can work in your spare time.” The plot thickens, as it is ladled out slowly like a curdling prison soup to the news-starved public. But they are both proud parents of some kid at the Air Force Academy. Hm again. Because that is the intelligence wing of the military, for what it is worth. How will drones find the escaped prisoners? How will be learn to accept them for our safety? You cannot get more federal than that, can you? One ring to rule them all? I think we are going to hit the bottom of the prison soup pot pretty soon…

  3. I wonder if the fake prison break in upstate NY is part of the Jade Helm exercise? It is comical that the post it note depicting an asian and stating “have a nice day” is left on the phony exit point of this DHS sponsored event.

    The whole situation reeked of a DHS action from the onset, with the speculative reporting, immediate martial law enactment in upstate NY, press conferences that resemble every Drill that has been discussed on MHB, and completely scripted responses to all questions and answers.

    I would bet the farm that a thorough investigation into all of these participants would reveal that they are just crisis actors, from the romantically involved prison employee, her family, the purported escapees and everyone interviewed to date.

  4. The way that CNN is unreeling the story of the lovelorn prison guard is interesting. Each criminal has a kind of character-driven backstory, about what they did and what is at stake for them.

    And of course the effect is to have heavily militarized police scouring the area for them. At least in upstate New York, they have the wit to use dogs, unlike in Boston with the “search” for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev where somehow they totally forgot there were available canine units to give them some leads.

    Is this story a fake? How can we tell? There would be some old criminal cases about these guys so it can be determined if such people actually exist. But since they are both in maximum security prisons, they need never have left the place at all! The prison guard herself should have been arrested and arraigned for her part in the escape, which is a very big crime. She was at large last time I looked, wearing a T-shirt (whether accurate of not) which proclaimed her a military mom.

    This whole thing closely resembles the Doerner case, which seemed fake to me at the time, as an exercise for police – I saw it as a military-type maneuver with a red team and a blue team (or whatever they designate them), Doerner being as I recall the sole member of his “team.”

    The lines are blurred between reality shows and soap operas, and so it seems with these exercises and real news (which is short dirty and brutal, like real bombings where everyone in the area falls down and nobody is in a condition to help those who randomly have legs blown off – usually it is several such amputees lying around together, unable to help one another, not scattered like raisins through a crowd). I believe the big problem with our society is the lack of real world experiences that force us to think about how things really happen, which is probably a belief shared by the current Establishment, because they feel they must invent an alternate reality rather than chance anyone penetrating all their other illusions.

    1. Is the prison in question even open??? Would Governor Cuomo of NY tour an operating prison that was the site of this landmark escape??? If these so called murderers/escapees could have access to sophisticated power tools, then how would this governor be allowed to tour such a dangerous place???

      They botched this story line just as badly as SHES. My take is that this is just another false flag.

    2. Nodisinfo has had some hits and misses, but I think the site is spot on with the “escaped prisoners”.


      This operation appears to be a combination of Christopher Dorner and BMB. Clinton Correctional Facility was opened in 1845. They built to last back then. It should be interesting to see what the script calls for in the grand finale.

  5. @Musings….I just saw a blurb about the Boston Bombing. It said that they had been seeking a third suspect, and that the third one was cornered and shot LAST WEEK ! Has anyone else heard of this ?

  6. Listened to the Interview and it was Great.

    Thanks James Tracy. Barrett is “up” there and worth listening to.

    So are you and I enjoyed hearing your deepest thoughts

    Your “one” of us. Just don’t Tell anyone…….

  7. Barrett is someone with limited knowledge and tunnel vision with his take on Jade Helm 15. I suggest he actually do some in depth research on this topic instead of just blurting out an ill informed opinion on it.

    Same with James Tracy who doesn’t even know how long Jade Helm 15 is supposed to run. It is not 90 days it is 60, although for anyone in the know, it has already begun and is not limited to just several southwestern states.

    Hard to gain any credibility when those who supposedly are the experts don’t have a clue on what is really going on. Jade Helm 15 is the real deal and will either go live this year and if not, sometimes during 2016. You can bet your life on it and this is what you will likely lose in any case.
