Americans flooded a Bastrop, Texas courtroom on Monday to express their concern for the upcoming Jade Helm military exercise.
Below is footage of the courtroom meeting shot by Infowars.com who was able to attend the gathering.
Jade Helm is a joint military and Interagency Unconventional Warfare exercise that will take place in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado. The exercise, in-which some participant will be in civilian clothes in hopes to blend in with the general population, has specifically listed Texas and Utah as “hostile” territory.
Participants in the drill include the Navy Seals, Air Force, Marines, and 82nd Airborne Division.
On CNN in the last hour, Jake Tapper interviewed Erica Green f the Baltimore Sun by phone from her vantage point on the ground during the riots in Baltimore. Tapper asked the reporter to describe what happened and her answer tells the tale of the day.
With the media spotlight shining on police militarization, most Americans know something about the federal 1033 transfer program that enables police departments to get military equipment like armored vehicles, high power weapons, grenade launchers, and even bayonets. But most Americans don’t realize that local law enforcement agencies can also acquire spy gear from the feds.
The NSA transfers electronic gadgets to a variety of agencies including local law enforcement, and it is as simple as catalog shopping.
This is yet another example of the tangled web of cooperation between state and local law enforcement, and the feds – a phenomenon quickly devolving America into one massive interconnected surveillance state.
These transfer programs have largely gone unnoticed. However, the most recent NSA tech catalog was recently released and sheds some light on the program.
A bizarre PSA put out by lobby group AARP now being broadcast on television and radio stations across the country contains a bizarre subliminal message about martial law being declared in America after nationwide riots.

Major news media outlets have failed to report one of the main leaders of the “splinter group” of Baltimore protesters who turned violent is a notorious racist and the former national chairman of the New Black Panther Party, WND has found.
The New York Times, the Associated Press, the New York Daily News, CBS local and other news media outlets all name Malik Shabazz as a leader of the breakaway, chaotic protests. Yet each of these news outlets only identify Shabazz only as “president of Black Lawyers for Justice.”
The AP reported: “One of the protest’s organizers, Malik Shabazz, the president of Black Lawyers for Justice, said the crowd exceeded their expectations, adding that protesters’ anger is not surprising.
“‘This is a problem that has not been solved,’ he said. ‘When there’s no justice, they tend to want to take matters into their own hands.’”
If you’re familiar with the story of the shoeshine boy then skip right to the image below.
The anecdote goes that avid investor Joe Kennedy was on his way to work in the winter of 1928 and stopped to have his shoes shined. When the shoeshine boy finished he offered up a tip to Kennedy.
“Buy Hindenburg,” he told the millionaire.
Kennedy soon unloaded most of his holdings. When pressed by friends and associates about his reason for selling, Kennedy quipped:
“You know it’s time to sell when shoeshine boys give you stock tips. This bull market is over.”
Less than a year later stock markets around the world collapsed, leaving tens of millions of people impoverished for decades to come.
It’s been reported that hordes of Chinese have transferred their life savings into stock markets in the hopes of striking it rich. According to Zero Hedge, some 7.2 million trading accounts have been opened in just the last two months.
Because, well, stock markets can only go up from here.

One of the great ironies of American politics is that most politicians who talk about helping the middle class support policies that, by expanding the welfare-warfare state, are harmful to middle-class Americans. Eliminating the welfare-warfare state would benefit middle-class Americans by freeing them from exorbitant federal taxes, including the Federal Reserve’s inflation tax.
Politicians serious about helping middle-class Americans should allow individuals to opt out of Social Security and Medicare by not having to pay payroll taxes if they agree to never accept federal retirement or health care benefits. Individuals are quite capable of meeting their own unique retirement and health care needs if the government stops forcing them into one-size-fits-all plans.
Middle-class families with college-age children would benefit if government got out of the student loan business. Government involvement in higher education is the main reason tuition is skyrocketing and so many Americans are graduating with huge student loan debts. College graduates entering the job market would certainly benefit if Congress stopped imposing destructive regulations and taxes on the economy.
Propaganda Works: A Significant Majority Of Americans Think The Economy Is Good… And Only Getting Better
Americans’ perception of President Obama’s economic policies are on the mend according to a new report from CNN.
“For the first time since President Obama took office,” says journalist Matt Egan, “a significant majority of Americans give the economy two thumbs up.”
The findings are based on a poll conducted by CNN/ORC.
According to the poll 52% of Americans described the economy as “very or somewhat good.”
By CNN standards this is considered a “significant majority.” So significant, in fact, that the network contends it is great news from Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign because it shows how successful Democratic programs have been.
Well, the Nasdaq finally did it. It has climbed all the way back to where it was at the peak of the dotcom bubble. Back in March 2000, the Nasdaq set an all-time record high of 5,048.62. On Thursday, after all these years, that all-time record was finally eclipsed. The Nasdaq closed at 5056.06, and Wall Street greatly rejoiced. So if you invested in the Nasdaq at the peak of the dotcom bubble, you are just finally breaking even 15 years later. Unfortunately, the truth is that stocks have not been soaring because the U.S. economy is fundamentally strong. Just like the last two times, what we are witnessing is an irrational financial bubble. Sometimes these irrational bubbles can last for a surprisingly long time, but in the end they always burst. And even now there are signs of economic trouble bubbling to the surface all around us. The following are 11 signs that we are entering the next phase of the global economic crisis…
#1 It is being projected that half of all fracking companies in the United States will be “dead or sold” by the end of this year.
#2 The rig count just continues to fall as the U.S. oil industry implodes. Incredibly, the number of rigs in operation in the United States has fallen for 19 weeks in a row.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has accused Oath Keepers of inciting an armed confrontation with BLM authorities over the Sugar Pine Mine dispute in Oregon, despite the fact that the organization has explicitly stated that it is not promoting armed confrontation with the feds.
In an article provocatively posted on the organization’s ‘Hatewatch’ section entitled Oath Keepers Descend Upon Oregon with Dreams of Armed Confrontation over Mining Dispute, the SPLC contradicts its own headline within the first three paragraphs.
