For the last few weeks, 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, new video footage shows military equipment behind one of the closed Walmarts in Midland, Texas, and military helicopters were also spotted flying nearby.
This video furthers the theory that the Walmart closings have something to do with Operation Jade Helm, which is set to take place this summer. The training exercise will involve troops “wearing civilian clothes and driving civilian vehicles” to blend in with “civilian populations.” The operation lists Utah and Texas as “hostile territory,” likely because these are two of the most conservative states in the country.
