For over a week now, we have been reporting on the mysterious closings of five Walmarts across the country.
2,200 Walmart employees at five stores in different cities were laid off last Tuesday and given just a few hours notice. Walmart claimed that the stores had to be closed due to plumbing issues, but many have questioned this explanation since all the stores were located in different parts of the country.
Now, some Texans believe that they have figured out the real reason the Walmart stores were closed.
Texans have connected the closings to Operation Jade Helm, which is set to take place in 17 Texas cities this summer. The military training exercise will feature Navy SEALs and Green Berets blending in with the public in “so-called realistic military training.” Many see this as a dry run for martial law.
Others have gone even further with the conspiracy, saying Walmart is using the stores to betray our nation.
“Will these massive stores soon be used as ‘food distribution centers’ and to house the headquarters of invading troops from China, here to disarm Americans…?” one theorist asked, according to Conservative Tribune.
Days ago, strange tunnels were discovered near the closed Walmarts. This has led many to suspect that these are part of a master plan that involved closing the Walmart stores.
“The tunneling project is a joint venture involving the National Security Agency, CIA, FBI, MiB, Homeland Security & a few other groups,” another theorist claimed. “The addition of new Walmart facilities in northwest Georgia gives spur hubs and depots easy access to large areas that can be partitioned off for moving of very large equipment and large numbers of people in case of national emergency.”
Instead of revealing the truth behind the Walmart closings, these theories only serve to reveal more questions. What do you think is the reason behind the closings? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
