Texas Resident Organize ‘Counter Jade Helm’ Effort to Surveil Military’s Movement

The US Military tried to secretly launch an operation inside the USA—and Texas in particular—called “Jade Helm.” The operation, the Pentagon insisted, was only meant as a “training exercise.” But citizens are suspicious of the program and now thousands of Texans are launching a project of their own they are calling the operation “Counter Jade Helm.”

The Pentagon’s training exercise is to occur across seven southwestern states and no one is being allowed to learn the details.

So, local citizens are going to try and keep an eye[1] on these movements.

Hundreds of people have organized a “Counter Jade Helm” surveillance operation across the Southwestern states and in an effort to keep an eye on the contentious military drill that’s sparked many suspicious of Uncle Sam’s intentions.

Eric Johnston, a 51-year-old retired firefighter and sheriff’s deputy who lives in Kerrville, is a surveillance team leader in Texas. He’ll coordinate three groups of volunteers, about 20 folks in total, who hope to monitor the SEALs, Green Berets and Air Force Special Ops in Bastrop, Big Spring and Junction when Jade Helm kicks off on July 15. With media prohibited at the drills, the volunteers could be a main source of information for the highly-anticipated seven-state exercise.

But locations more precise than the towns around which troops will drill remain unknown. For the citizens’ surveillance operation, therein lies the first challenge.

“If a team member sees two Humvees full of soldiers driving through town, they’re going to follow them,” Johnston said. “And they’re going to radio back their ultimate location.”

hey aren’t worried about martial law, he said, but feel like they can’t trust the government, and want to make sure the Military isn’t under orders to pull anything funny.

Secret operations inside our own country is something that can’t be tolerated.
