Further research and a connection of dots, much like putting the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle together, shows a terrifying picture emerging as each new piece is added, where we see a definite China connection, Walmart and Caterpillar both shuttering facilities, and both listed by USNORTHCOM in 2009 as part of a "critical infrastructure" as part of their disaster response coordination.
Joe Catalino, USNORTHCOM Chief of Private Sector Operations, Interagency Coordination Directorate, discussed his role in working with agencies and private-sector companies. The Interagency Coordination Directorate works directly with private corporations like Wal-Mart and Caterpillar to list resources and services available when they are needed.....
A look into the Walmart Distribution Network Center for the United States shows that as of the start of 2013, between their distribution centers and retail space within the United States, Walmart's real estate is approximately 838 million Square feet, which is nearly 1.3 times larger than Manhattan.
US MAPS of Walmart's vast number of distribution centers and locations can be found here, one of which is shown below.
FOREIGN TRADE ZONES (FTZ)
Via a forwarded email, ANP was asked to research more about Walmart general merchandize distribution center locations in comparison to "Foreign Trade Zones," sponsored by The Rockefeller Group, Miller and Co., Zone Solutions LLC, QuestaWeb, Inc., Integration Point, as shown on the National Association of Foreign Trade Zones (NAFTZ) page. (Scroll to the bottom)
Foreign Trade Zones is described by Wiki as "a geographical area, in (or adjacent to) a United States Port of Entry, where commercial merchandise, both domestic and foreign receives the same Customs treatment it would if it were outside the commerce of the United States."
The email stated "How many of the Walmarts are in or near the FTZ's - Answer - ALOT OF THEM
When comparing the two maps above, the answer is not just a lot of them, but almost all of them.
In a previous ANP article we quoted a former military man as stating via email "Walmart's are outfitted with extensive communications, communications that are identical from store to store and even country to country," stating he believes "the primary purpose for Walmart's, similar stores and malls will be for supply depots for military and initial staging area for local civilians to be processed (clothes ID's etc.), then moved to sanctuary's/FEMA camps after processing." He continues on to point out "the delivery entrances and storage are already set up."
A former Navy Seal also shares his take on the underground tunnels recently reported on, stating "The tunnels are already in place. they are using the 6 months, which brings us into September, to clear the places out and configure them for supply depots, communication hubs and pre-processing centers."
In that article we show a Chinese connection to the Jade Helm operations set to take place from July to September and the Walmart closings, stating:
"The China connection could be very important if we look at the big picture, see the US Dollar is at the high end of the scale of how long any nation keeps it's world reserve currency status, the amount of money we owe China, the amount of land China already owns in the US, the push to replace the Dollar with the RMB, their recent successes in getting many US allies to join their China-led investment bank, and the 2012 call by China to disarm Americans." In 2011 there were eye witness accounts, starting with a trucker delivering food into Mexico, who told Steve Quayle he witnessed Chinese troops amassing close to the border, stating that there were also 10,000 armored vehicles as well. That account matches up with rumors going back as far as 1998 about Chinese soldiers in Mexico.
If these accounts are true, then the elites have been planning America's demise for a very long time.
OTHER PREPARATIONS BEING MADE
Keeping all the aforementioned in mind, there are other preparations being made, all parts of this large puzzle, all reported separately, but may very well all be connected, such as the recent news of NORAD and the Pentagon moving their communications equipment to Stargate Mountain, the cold-war era Cheyenne Mountain bunker that's naturally EMP-hardened Colorado to be used as a command center, and the NY Fed bulking up their Chicago citing they are wary of "a natural disaster or other eventuality could shut down its market operations as it approaches an interest rate hike," according to Reuters.
There is also news of the Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase over 62 million rounds of ammo typically used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, just weeks after the ATF was forced to back down on a ban on M855 bullets, as shown in the Alex Jones video below.
With the massive military movements being seen and documented, the planned Jade Helm exercises, the WMD drills in Iowa, marines practicing drills at sports parks, the Florida martial law roundup drill, and more.... in conjunction with the bizarre Walmart closings, the Chinese connections and now the underground tunnels, along with the DHS and USNORTHCOM connections established to Walmarts and other such facilities, topped off with the NORAD, Pentagon and Federal Reserve actions, all happening right now, it appears events are accelerating and "they" are preparing for something huge to down.
From the nature of the news and headlines being seen, it appears that rather than a terrorist attack, or a nuclear weapon, or some natural disaster, what they are preparing for is an economic event that will be devastating.
Some believe they are prepping for chaos, China calling in their debt when the dollar is replaced as the world's reserve currency, expecting martial law will be declared and Americans prepared to fight back against a total lockdown, will be rounded up and "processed" accordingly using what the USNORTHCOM calls their "critical infrastructure" facilities.
This would also explain the numbers projected by Deagel.com, based on sources from the US government, showing there will be a 78 percent population drop in 2025 compared to 2015, stating they expect the "death toll will be horrible."
