For the past week, we’ve been reporting on the mysterious closings of five Walmart stores across the country.
Last Tuesday, 2,200 Walmart employees all over the U.S. were laid off and given just a few hours notice as their stores were shut down for unknown reasons. Suspicions were quickly raised, and conspiracy theorists soon linked the closings to the government, suggesting that they were shut down so the stores could be used for military training operations.
Now, residents of Big Spring, Texas, where one of the closed Walmart stores is located, have reported that they have seen helicopters and other military vehicles coming into their town.
“I saw a train carrying all sorts of military equipment heading into Big Spring,” said one resident, according to Infowars. “There were also about 14 helicopters flying over the [Big Spring McMahon-Wrinkle] Airport last night and a tank getting driven through that open field [near the airport]. It’s scary seeing that and not knowing what in the world is going on.”
These helicopters were likely part of the upcoming Jade Helms military training exercise, which is set to take place from July 15-September 15. During this exercise, soldiers will operate ”undetected amongst civilian populations” to see if they can do so without being noticed. Many see this as the government’s way of conducting a test run for martial law.
