It seems like every month there is a new doomsday prediction being uttered somewhere, then repeated on YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter. The planetary alignment that supposedly was going to bring “The Big One” to the West Coast of North America happened, but no catastrophes accompanied it. But when the events do not pan out, do we stop there? Of course not, because as humans we seem to be obsessed with our own destruction as a species. There are countless articles on the web covering this topic and why it might be so I am not going to delve into that rabbit hole on this post. Instead, I am going to outline a few of the “coming attractions” in the world of conspiracies, of which I am a resident.

Jade Helm 15

I have been hearing about this one for months. Alex Jones at Infowars has been raving about it since at least January. Jade Helm 15 is purported as being a military exercise involving training activities focused on “unconventional warfare” in urban areas beginning on July 15th and running until September 15th. People like Jones are insisting it is a “dry-run” for a martial law power grab by the Federal government. The army is calling it a simple training exercise for our special forces. From a press release on the U.S. Army website:

USASOC periodically conducts training exercises such as these to practice core special warfare tasks, which help protect the nation against foreign enemies. It is imperative that Special Operations Soldiers receive the best training, equipment and resources possible.

While multi-state training exercises such as these are not unique to the military, the size and scope of Jade Helm sets this one apart. To stay ahead of the environmental challenges faced overseas, Jade Helm will take place across seven states; Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida. The diverse terrain in these states replicates areas Special Operations Soldiers regularly find themselves operating in overseas.

Who knows if this is part of some crazy agenda to seize military control of the civilian population, but it doesn’t stop there. Several Wal-Mart closures in different states have become a part of this conspiracy theory as well, and while I always take things I read online or hear on YouTube with a grain of salt (a really BIG one), one reported contacted the Wal-Mart in their area and asked outright if the store closures have anything at all to do with Jade Helm 15 or the U.S. military. The manager denied all of it, of course, but it was the manner in which he voiced his denial that truck me as just a bit fishy.

Have a listen: 

If you listened to the whole conversation then you heard the strange, awkward laughter and the weak denial in the face of what most people would consider some pretty outrageous and even ridiculous claims, if they are in fact untrue. Think about it. You are a manager for Wal-Mart and you get a phone call about something so ridiculous as “collusion with the military to implement martial law” or “underground tunnels that lead miles and miles away from the closed Wal-Mart stores for military to use” and you get asked if these crazy things are true. Would you have more to say than a weak sounding “no”? That guy sounded like my 5 year old son when I have caught him in a lie and he KNOWS I have caught him but he just doesn’t want to give up the lie yet. I am not saying that I believe, without a doubt, that this military training is actually a pre-martial law exercise, but after listening to that guy’s really weak denials, I cannot say that I don’t believe it at this point either.

Let’s not forget the circumstances of these store closures either. Wal-Mart, the biggest box store in the nation, has closed 5 stores in four different states, all of them to be closed for at least six months, all of them closed for “plumbing repairs”…that in itself is strange right? We have a Wal-Mart where I live, and they have done multiple remodels and repairs over the years they have been here, never once did they close the store, even for one day let alone half a year! When they did the really big remodel job a few years back, they had sections of the store closed off during the day and they were worked on at night when the store was closed to the public. Within a few months, the remodel was complete and not one day of business was lost for the massive corporation. So I cannot pretend that it is not weird that they have completely shut down five different store locations and they plan to keep them shut down for half a year or longer, all for plumbing repairs in every case.

Meteor Strike September 2015

This one is a really strange coincidence and one that is hard to believe because, like all other doomsday theories involving celestial events, we will not know for sure until the day of “impact”. Apparently a massive meteor is set to strike Earth on or after September 15. This is a real bummer because that happens to be my youngest son’s birthday, so if the world ends on that day I will be pretty upset. However, this is not, supposedly, going to be an extinction level event (ELE) but rather a catastrophe that is just bad enough to usher in the New World Order (NWO). I do not have to go into the NWO because if you don’t know what that is you probably don’t belong on this blog.

For this one, we will have to just wait and see. But here is a bit of strange news that gave me a small breakout of goosebumps. The UN, between September 25th and 27th this year will unveil a new sustainable development agenda for the entire world. They will make this unveiling in New York after a speech by the Pope. This article from outlines several events that are going to take place in 2015.

September 15th – The 70th session of the UN General Assembly begins on this date.  It is being reported that France plans to introduce a resolution which would give formal UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian state.  Up until now, the United States has always been the one blocking such a resolution, but Barack Obama is indicating that things may be much different this time around.

September 25th to September 27th – The United Nations is going to launch a brand new sustainable development agenda for the entire planet.  Some have called this “Agenda 21 on steroids”.  But this new agenda is not just about the environment.  It also includes provisions regarding economics, agriculture, education and gender equality.  On September 25th, the Pope will travel to New York to give a major speech kicking off the UN conference where this new agenda will be unveiled.

September 28th – This is the date for the last of the four blood moons that fall on Biblical festival dates during 2014 and 2015.  This blood moon falls on the very first day of the Feast of Tabernacles, it will be a “supermoon”, and it will actually be visible in the city of Jerusalem.  There are many that dismiss the blood moon phenomenon, but we have seen similar patterns before.  For example, a similar pattern of eclipses happened just before and just after the destruction of the Jewish temple by the Romans in 70 AD.

So, are we on a course set for destruction at the end of this year? Or, like so many other predictions, will these amount to so much fear porn as well? All we can do is wait and see, as usual.
