Texas Ranger Drops Jade Helm Bombshell: “There Are Trains With Shackles On Them”

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The reports about the coming Jade Helm 15 operation across the southwest continue to suggest that this is not merely a standard training exercise to prepare our military personnel for foreign engagements as has been suggested by officials.

A letter sent to Dave Hodges at The Common Sense Show by a concerned Texas Ranger indicates that the government is preparing for a scenario similar to what has been described in William Forstchen’s recent novella Day of Wrath in which ISIS terrorists cross the southern border of the United States and simultaneously attack soft targets across the nation.

But the letter doesn’t stop there. The Ranger, who has kept his identify private for obvious reasons and makes clear that the scope of Jade Helm is so secret that the intent is not completely clear, says that the JH15 mission objectives may go much farther than just preparing for terrorists. According to the law enforcement insider there are trains moving throughout Texas and some of them have been outfitted with shackles, presumably to “transport prisoners of some sort.” The claim adds further credence to a report about Jade Helm dissident roundups and arrests and widespread martial law declarations following an emergency.

His letter sheds some light on the Walmart store closings, suggesting at least one may be utilized in a national security capacity as a staging point for the Department of Homeland Security, an agency that is apparently not trusted by anyone within the Texas Rangers organization, according to the source.

The full letter follows:

Hello Mr. Hodges,

I have been a Texas Ranger for quite some time, and as such, I am privy to much of what is going on with regard to the Midland Walmart store closing, the presence of ISIS on Texas soil and our preparations to combat an insurgent threat.

I will not give you my rank or location because it would not be safe to do so. It is a waste of time to try and trace the IP#, etc., as I have taken steps to ensure that this note cannot be traced back to me.  I understand and  realize that you seem to have a growing issue with people who will not go on the record with their inside knowledge or first-hand observations, but you cannot understand the pressure and scrutiny that some of us are under. I am taking a big risk writing this email to you.

The main reason that I am writing to you is to encourage you to keep writing on the growing threat of infiltration in Texas and I suspect other states as well. The infiltration I am writing about is not just Special Forces that are going to conducting covert drills in our state. that is concerning and I agree with you this involves martial law.  For now I am talking about ISIS and the danger that they pose to all of us. Our intelligence indicates that they have enough manpower & firepower to subdue a small town. The Midland Walmart takeover by DHS is a national security move in which we have been told falls under the Continuity of Government provisions. The Threat Fusion Centers are providing related information on what it is we are facing but the information sharing is only in one direction and that is very concerning.

We expecting an attack on more than one Texas city or town by ISIS and/or any of their partners. I believe the information to be accurate. However, this makes the covert operations of groups like the Navy Seals and others under JH15 highly suspicious. We do not need the insertion of Special Ops into Texas towns and cities. I think that you are probably right about the intention of arresting political undesirables given what we know about JH15. I am of the opinion that whatever the mission objectives of JH15, they have nothing to do with the immediate threat. Therefore, I do not pretend to understand the full scope of JH 15 because there are unfolding operational details which are almost impossible to reconcile with what I already know to be fact based the evidence for what is going on.

Let me drop a bombshell that I have not seen you address. There are trains moving throughout Texas that have shackles inside some of the cars. I have not personally seen them, but I know personnel that have seen this. This indicates that these trains will be used to transport prisoners of some sort. I know from reading your articles that your default belief will be that these are for American political prisoners and will be transported to FEMA detention camps of some sort. We have been told by Homeland that these trains are slated for transporting captured terrorists, non-domestic. We are not sure we can trust this explanation because Homeland is keeping a lot from us and we are growing increasingly uncomfortable with their presence in Texas.

I wanted to tell also you that we believe that Pantex is a high value target for ISIS and much or our preparation is to thwart any action by terrorists against the facility.  I am wondering how in the hell you figured that out. Someone on the deep inside must be talking with you.

Keep writing Mr. Hodges, you and the underground media are making a difference. As I am sure you know, Colorado announced today that JH15 is suspended in that state. Unfortunately, we do not have that prerogative because we believe that we are under the threat of eminent attack here in Texas.

I do believe the ISIS threat is legitimate. But you are also correct to suspect the motives behind the JH15 drills. They are clouded in secrecy and we have been shut out regarding their operational intent. The people of Texas and all of the United States of America should be pushing back against JH15.

I will support the Feds in their preparation against ISIS. But the moment that this action turns against our locals is the moment I will perform my oath of office. I am not alone in this feeling. 

You do your job and keep writing and I will do my job in upholding the Constitution

Thank You

The suspicions of the public are quite justified, it seems. The operational commanders for Jade Helm have compartmentalized the “exercise” to such an extent that no one, not the local and state law enforcement officers involved or the majority of military personnel, has any idea what is actually going on.

As noted in the letter, a realistic threat from our southern border certainly exists and as we’ve written previously, Border Patrol and Homeland Security have been capturing suspected terrorist operatives crossing into the United States for years. But the Texas Ranger who penned the letter says this is not necessarily the full scope of the massive Summer exercise.

And given that people within his own organization report seeing shackles in trains, is it completely out of the question to suggest that the government does, in fact, have procedures in place to detain, transport and imprison those suspected of terrorism, or those who may be suspected of being suspected?

When Gerald Celente warned of the Auschwitz Express back in a 2012 interview he wasn’t joking:

First it was the Patriot Act. Now it’s the National Defense Authorization Act. And then it was Obama’s Executive Order giving El Presidente Los Estados Unidos the supreme right to call Martial Law at a potential threat – a potential threat.

Then there’s Big Bro over there, Attorney General Eric Holder, who just passed these guidelines that could let them listen in to what we’re saying right now, listen to you on your cell phone, watch every stroke of your keyboard, and they at the White House could then determine whether or not the algorythms add up to you being a terrorist or a potential terrorist.

Big Brother never had it so good.

…all aboard the Auschwitz Express…

…That’s what’s going on here… and the people don’t see it, and they’re afraid to speak up… People don’t want to believe it.

Full Interview Via SGT Report

We will soon find out if Jade Helm is just another military exercise. Some are of the opinion that it could be used to facilitate a false flag operation that would then be used as justification to implement nationwide martial law and to activate Doomsday Executive Orders recently signed by President Obama.

It may sound wildly conspiratorial, but it wouldn’t be the first time a government has purposefully engaged in such conduct.

      This letter sounds like a pyOp! ISIS is coming….of course they are….The U.S. Corrupt made them to be their ticket to Marshal Law and the Dollar Collapse!

      • CrowPie

        Yes. That’s right. We decided that everyone who cannot spell ‘chrysanthemum’ when stopped by soldiers will be sent off to FEMA camps.

        • Equalizer

          Your first in line cowpie. Time for bed…get off your mommys computer.

        • Equalizer

          My apologies cowpie… You can’t shackle a “turd”.

        • CrowPie

          Well how would a ‘Flat Earther’ know whether he could be shackled or not?

          I notice you didn’t include the word ‘Chrysanthemum’ in your comment. :lol:

        • Scanner Darko

          Just as the universe has more dimensions than equalizer can count, chrysanthemum has one too many syllables for Equalizer to pronounce, be at by voice or keyboard.

        • Non Christian American

          Oh, CowPlop!
          The shackles WILL be put on your feet, christo-CREEP!
          To take a little choo choo ride to the FEMA Camp for some re-education for adults who are determined to be hopelessly brain-washed to believe that a white-skinned mangod made the whole Universe!
          They will make you forget all about the white-skinned mangod, CowPlop named Jen Jed Bozza!!!!!!!!
          And, I will GLADLY HUNT YOU judeo-christo-CREEPS down, for a nice Bounty, to be paid by the government when I turn your arse in for some re-education, oh CowPloper of mine!!!!!!

          Can’t WAIT for christo-CREEP Bounty Hunting to begin!!!!!
          After all, CowPlop, it will be good for the economy!
          All those people put to work just to ROUND UP, REEDUCATE, AND TAKE CARE OF all the maniac christo-CREEPS of ameriiiSCUM!!!!

        • CrowPie

          Let me guess….Your S. J. Jr. from New York?

      • StormyB4

        If the letter is real than this Ranger can’t put the obvious 2 and 2 together. If ISIS is in Mexico preparing to attack, why let them? Presumably they’re easy targets right now. If ISIS attacks, it’s part of the JH15 plan…


        ONCE AGAIN, it is ‘martial law’, not marshal law…and ‘psyop’ not pyop…nevertheless, be on your guard…if you ‘are’ a true Patriot…and, remember, there are more ‘with us’ than with ‘them’…the SCRIPTURES tell us that.

        L. :idea:

      I’ve never seen a single thing that Hodges says proven true.

    • Painless

      If this were in any way true, the borders would have been shut down. They won’t shut the borders , because it would interfere with Obama’s mass-migration of Mexicans.



        The North American Union proposal is behind schedule…but, they are intent on pushing it through…if it is in the will of GOD, nothing will stop it from occurring…L. :idea:

      :arrow: Citizens of JADE HELM. Fellow citizens need to immediately start and organize an around the clock citizens group to monitor Everything going on in your city once Jade Helm/Mayhem starts. You know the Gov and your city will do nothing, so it will be up to you. Now is the time to start planning.

      Gather as many people as you can, plan a 24/7 monitoring of all your key main roads in/out of your city, and ensure you have your entire overnight monitored against the military/police undercover forces that are planning on coming to harm your community. Remember, most of their actions they say will be in done under cover, and in the middle of night, so you need as many people on the streets watching! If you see something suspicious, follow and talk with with.

      First, ensure you all have walkie talkies so freedom lovers of your community can keep in consent communication with each other. Suggestions would be to monitor all your major intersections into your city and monitor vehicles. If they look suspicious, follow them; Or you could have fellow citizens drive up and down your streets at day/night, looking for these criminals… You could even have citizens in chairs on street corners watching. If you see something, call and go see what people are doing. Start shifts. But simply relying on your city and gov to protect you is off the tables, so it is up to its citizens like you. This was to start you thinking and planning today…

      But having a around the clock (especially during the night) MUST HAPPEN for your communities safety. I highly suspect that with these “practice games” sneaking in the dark of night, they will be doing something to target/dismantle your power/communication lines in your city; so when the time comes, they can flip one button, and take down all your cities power/communications at the same time? Or are they placing split wiring so all data in/out of your city goes directly into NSA databases, so they get a direct line for everything? By the Gov targeting that specific key location(s) in the dead of night is to simply rig up some type of device to remove your cities vital link offline when needed. This sounds the most logical reason why they only want to do harm to each city in the dark of night.

      :?: NOT A EXERCISE! How can this just be a exercise? How will any american soldiers practice to “blend in” in civilian clothing to invade any foreign enemy in say Mexico, Cuba, Japan, China, etc? DON’T THEY ALL SPEAK IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE? So how can these soldiers learn to “Blend In” BY NOT SPEAKING IN THAT COUNTRIES NATIVE LANGUAGE? Clearly, this is only to destroy America, where they speak “American”. Even going to Canada, they will not blend in because they don’t have the language, so this is 100% proof it is to Overthrow your Nation and Citizens. So how this “Practice” teaching them to blend in in Iran, or Iraq, India… Impossible! The gov is the citizens enemy and targetting it very own people. Plain and simple. No other logical reason can be given.

      Good luck on your freedom fight for your lives, nation, and Freedom. We all are counting on you. Paul Revere

    • dagiles

      Dave are these trains fitted with shackles or perhaps just chains? I think people are seeing auto hauling boxcars that do have chains in them to anchor down the vehicles not to chain down humans. I have thirty years in the car biz.

      It means nothing as long as American sons are loyal to the people around them and not to politicians. The American people represent the best armed, and largest, fighting force the world has known.

      Absolutely surrealistic! How can any hostile army no matter from where it comes enter the US soil and perform training without being already identified and known by the most sofisticated surveillance country in the world?they can identify a bee and track it!Unless the Pentagon or a bunch of rogue military within the government allow it to happen? The only explanation is:
      1/- The US government is badly divided and Jade Helm is a military preparation of one side to engage in an inside civil war where ISIS is the proxy army of the other side in the US government(supposedely the banking cartel) OR
      2/-The Us government doesn’t face an inside threat and for whatever reason wants to transform the US in a near future into a militarised nation under control(martial law) which the purpose is basically CONTROL to avoid chaos, because they know something will happen soon: it could be anything ranging from a fabricated economic crash to a natural threat(an asteroid, massive solar flare…)
      No matter what the reason is, the first or the second one, nothing changes for people, they must arrange their life when it’s still little time left to try to deal with what’s coming…Personally , based on masonic disguised information in movies , and by trying to understand the world as a whole, I think christmas this year will be different….

      It’s a training exercise so expect a false flag, like um, American controlled ISIS invade texas.

      i read about these trains made to shackle people 10 years ago!
      If this is all true about jade helm then there has to be a something big going to happen to be able to implement all of this!….an economic collapse is just not enough!…it is possible they are preparing for Nibiru! August/September.
      I hope not….cause i like shopping, electricity and the internet!
      I did see a second sunset about a month ago, twice about a week apart!…”no bull”…makes the second sun theory not a theory for me anymore!
