JADE HELM 15 Tie-In With The Minerva Research Initiative?

May 15, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin


Many of you have likely read or heard about the upcoming JADE HELM 15 military training exercise to take place on US soil during this summer. Many believe that this training is specifically geared and aligned towards upcoming civil breakdown here in the United States.

That said, how many of you have heard of the ‘Minerva Research Initiative’? It seems there may be a tie-in between this initiative (which was instated following the 2008 ‘crash’) and the agenda of JADE HELM 15.

Here’s why …

The premise behind the Minerva Research Initiative is apparently this: study how violent political overthrow, aka mass civil breakdown, happens in the day and age of social networks, and be prepared to counteract it – by “targeting peaceful activities and protest movements” – when it finally reaches US shores.

What is Minerva?

It studies the dynamics of civil unrest, and how the US military might best respond.

From the .mil website itself,

…understanding the physical terrain and environment …cultural and political environments where those threats develop …detection of radical actors and regime disruptions… improve DoD’s basic understanding of the social, cultural, behavioral and political forces of strategic importance.

The Minerva Research Initiative, initiated by former Secretary Gates in 2008.

While its initiative is stated to cover “regions of the world of strategic importance to the U.S.”, certainly THE MOST STRATEGIC REGION is right here in the United States. The homeland.

Here’s something interesting… Reported from the Guardian last year (regarding Minerva), “Among the projects awarded for the period 2014-2017 is a study managed by the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research which aims to develop an empirical model “of the dynamics of social movement mobilization and contagions.” The project will determine “the critical mass (tipping point)” of social contagions…”.

Did you know that “JADE” stands for (Joint Assistant for Deployment and Execution) and is an initiative established by the ‘Air Force Research Laboratory’?

Another Minerva project (according to the original Guardian report) “seeks to uncover the conditions under which political movements aimed at large-scale political and economic change originate,”

Could the Minerva project be tied-in with JADE HELM 15? If you study the apparent purpose for JADE HELM, it does seem to compliment that of Minerva.

A primary purpose of JADE HELM is to test (train) their abilities to infiltrate, go undetected, blend in with a civilian local environment without blowing their cover – all with the intent (goal) to garner trust and intelligence (on the inside) of a insurgency or uprising.

Some states within the U.S. (regions of states) will be labeled “hostile” territory where apparently military personnel will be inserted to ‘infiltrate’ hypothetical civilian insurgent groups in various regions.


This drill has a purpose – Training has purpose. The only reason you would train on this scale and in this place, is to evaluate your operational abilities in an English speaking, Western environment…

Can you say, “collapse”?

It is quite reasonable and logical to accept that the US .gov has a high strategic interest in its homeland. While many of you have a grasp or understanding of our upcoming economic undoing (collapse?), do you believe that .gov also sees the ‘writing on the wall’?

By the time the “mass civil breakdown” is set to take place (and grand central-planning experiments by the Fed and its peers fall into a heap), virtually everyone who poses even the tiniest threat to the (collapsing?) regime will be branded a terrorist.

Is it simply a matter of time before men in gray suits (or men in full-on military garb) quietly (or loudly) arrest any and all potentially threatening social network “nodes” of so called ‘terrorist behavior’ on the simple grounds that their mere presence threatens the status quo with an even faster collapse?

Just what is JADE HELM 15??

…food for thought.
