As of this posting Justin Smith has written four comments pertaining to the post “The Jade Helm 15 Drill is a Martial Law, Civil War and “Red List” Extraction Drill”. In full disclosure I am a huge fan of Justin Smith’s writings and he is a frequent contributor to one of my blogs SlantRight 2.0. In saying that Justin’s comments signify that he finds the Conspiracy Theory about Jade Helm 15 being a practice exercise for a future interagency/U.S. Military instituting martial law on American soil to be a bunch of baloney.
Justin is so passionate about his belief that Jade Helm 15 is baloney that he uses profanity (which I have edited) to demonstrate his displeasure. If you have Justin’s submissions here you are fully aware that he is one NOT prone to profanity. Hence as a respecter of his opinion I trust his thoughts.
In his comments below I am going to add some context links to some info that Justin uses to debunk the Jade Helm 15 Conspiracy Theory. The title used is by me the Editor to aggregate Justin’s comments produced here in four separate segments.
Feel free to chime in with comments with whether or not you believe Justin Smith. I hope there is a enough of a sane discussion that future posts are derived.

Debunking the Jade Helm 15 Conspiracy Theory

This is pure unadulterated BULLS**T! I just went through debunking this with a FB "friend" [I wonder this is the guy] who deleted my comments after asking to have it "debunked". Some people are only interested in sounding or looking more intelligent than they really are and they care not one whit about the Truth!
David Hodges is one such FOOL, who writes for DC Clothesline, which is a miserable rag that places just enough truth within its stories to make them plausible to those low-informed readers, who are willing to accept anything without properly researching it for themselves.
I have caught Hodges in so many factual errors, that now when I see his name attached to anything, I automatically discard it. Hodges is a buffoon and a base liar as far as I'm concerned.

Anyone subscribing to this conspiracy simply doesn't understand the mechanisms and methods at play here. There are many concerns with the NDAA certainly. And despite its illegal and unConstitutional nature, the military leaders will abide by Posse Comitatus as a matter of honor, unless they can be politicized by future Progressive Administrations.
If people want to be concerned, they should look toward the use of the Homeland Security/TSAA [Editor: Going out on limb to guess Justin means TSA], the intelligence groups [See Also USNewsAndWorldReport], progressive groups such as ACORN/MoveOn.org as the other army that Obama spoke of growing and the possible use of military contractors such as Blackwater in conjunction with REX 84.
But even this could not and will not succeed as long as Americans are armed and still have the 2nd Amendment. Plus, no self-respecting U.S. soldier would or will go along with the idea being put forth in this piece of s**t article. Special Forces have long been engaging in these sort of exercises on expansive military lands and throughout federal land areas; this is nothing new.

Army Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria, a USASOC [See Also HERE] spokesman, confirmed that there is an upcoming exercise called Jade Helm 15 which is scheduled to take place this summer at locations in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, California and Nevada. But he denied the event is preparation for some sort of military takeover.
“That notion was proposed by a few individuals who are unfamiliar with how and why USASOC conducts training exercises,” he said in an email. “This exercise is routine training to maintain a high level of readiness for Army Special Operations Forces because they must be ready to support potential missions anywhere in the world on a moment’s notice.”

This is a fact and represents an interesting and potential danger for all America. Rex 84 was started under Reagan in 1984 and it is directed towards any potential natural catastrophe scenario or nuclear war or any other situation that might have devastating effects on the country and cause a societal upheaval.
Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was a classified "scenario and drill" developed by the United States federal government to suspend the United States Constitution, declare martial law, place military commanders in charge of state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens .
In May 2007, Bush signed executive new orders NSDP51 and HSDP20 to replace REX84. The older order REX84 was an older directive to establish martial law in the event of a national emergency. Everything done in government is done for a reason, and these two new orders are no exception. These new directives surprised and alarmed many real conservatives and true patriots at the time.
These two orders established that the White House Administration would take over all local governments under a national state of emergency, instead of Homeland Security. In May 2007, The Washington Post apparently saw nothing wrong with it and placed the story back on page 13 (a fitting unlucky number for it), according to a CSPAN television interview with well-known author and writer Jerome Corsi [See Also HERE]:
