The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges
Both Michael Savage and Alex Jones are on the record when they both state that there is going to be a civil war involving the United States.
Rumors are surfacing and becoming substantiated about a second set of massive military preparedness drills and it is not Jade Helm. These drills are known as Operation Red Flag. Many point to this video, submitted here from DAHBOO 7 in which he identifies Operation Red Flag as a civilian suppression drill which could accompany civil unrest or even civil war. Please refer to the following video.
There is no doubt that Operation Red Flag is, in part, about subjugating an unruly public through the use of microwave weapons. However, Operation Red Flag is much, much more than is depicted here. Before we get to exactly what Operation Red Flag entails, it is important to listen to what Alex Jones says about the coming civil war.
The enormity of Jade Helm is mindboggling. Listen to the following partial recording of the Info Wars Nightly News description. Alex Jones provides a most lucid and succinct account in the first 10 minutes of the following video in which he lays out how America is purposely being led to Civil War.
The following video content includes the build-up to martial law, the government documents which supports the fact that we are already under martial law and the intent of this administration to kill all who resist. The following 10 minutes is a must watch.
Are there any elements of the U.S. government who will come to the aid of the American people in such a scenario? Probably not. However, there is a branch of the military that Obama has not been able to totally bring under his control since he has become President and that is the U.S. Navy and in particular, the submarine fleet. Obama has spent significant energy in trying to negate the fact that the Navy is not loyal to this administration as evidenced by the following executive actions where commanders have fired or demoted.
- Captain Eric Merrill-U.S. Navy Commander submarine Emory S. Land (Jul 2011).
- Vice Admiral Tim Giardina(3 Star, demoted to 2 Star)-U.S. Navy Deputy Commander of the US Strategic Command, Commander of the Submarine Group Trident, Submarine Group 9 and Submarine Group 10 (Oct 2013).
- Commander Mike Varney-U.S. Navy Commander attack submarine Connecticut (Jun 2011).
- Lieutenant Commander Lauren Allen-Executive Officer submarine Jacksonville (Feb 2013).
- Commander Luis Molina-U.S. Navy Commander submarine Pasadena (Jan 2013).
- Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette-U.S. Navy Commander John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group Three (Oct 2012). Let’s not forget that it was Gaouette who conspired with former Africom commander, General Hamm, to attempt to rescue Ambassador Chris Stevens in an attempt to perpetrate a soft coup against the Obama administration by having a grateful Stevens “tell-all” about the terrorist funding activities of the administration.
- Vice Admiral Tim Giardina (3 Star, demoted to 2 Star)-U.S. Navy Deputy Commander of the US Strategic Command, Commander of the Submarine Group Trident, Submarine Group 9 and Submarine Group 10 (Oct 2013). Giardina did not succumb to Obama’s attempts to control the submarine fleet. Obama does not control the submarine fleet. Because the skills of submarine personnel are highly specific, the submarine fleet trains their own and Obama has not been able to figure out how to break through the fleet’s resistance to Obama’s dismantling of the military and the giveaway of American sovereignty. When it comes to the submarine fleet, Obama can keep cutting the head off, but it will keep growing back.
The Potency of the Submarine Fleet That Scares Obama
Getting information on the nuclear potential of our submarine fleet is difficult. However, because of the SALT treaties, I have been able to learn that there are 14 Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines maintained by the U.S. Navy. Typically, at any one time two of these submarines are in long-term overhaul, meaning that 12 are normally operationally available. Four other submarines of the Ohio-class have been converted to carry conventionally-armed cruise missiles in place of SLBMs.
The number of launch tubes on an Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine. Under the New START Treaty, four tubes on each submarine will be converted so that they are incapable of launching an SLBM and thus will not be counted against the treaty’s limit of 800 deployed and non-deployed ICBM and SLBM launchers plus deployed and non-deployed nuclear-capable bombers. The U.S. Navy plans that the Ohio-class submarine’s replacement will have 16 launch tubes. Treaties aside, there are hundreds of nuclear missiles that Obama does not control.
This means that in a civil war action which would be opposed by elements of the Navy, this administration would have to rely on Russian and Chinese subs to counter the rogue threat posed by Naval forces which are not loyal to this administration and this is exactly what we find.
U.S. national security officials are concerned about the pace and intensity of Russian submarine development, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jon Greenert said back in October,2014.
“There are competitors that are pursuing us. We know about China. That is very well spelled out, but not as many people know what the Russians are up to. I can’t go into detail, obviously, but they spend a lot of money. The Russians have been working on a sea-based strategic deterrence – and an SSN (attack submarine),” Greenert said at the Naval Submarine League’s annual symposium in Falls Church, Va.
To counter the threat the Navy is engaged in their own version of Operation Red Flag in which the Navy is mostly kept out of its ports to avoid being taken over and in a constant state of readiness that includes developing counter-measures against the Chinese and Russian growing submarine threat. This constant state of readiness has been going on for almost 6 years, which is the approximate length of time that Obama has been in office. Before we discuss counter-measuresin detail, let’s take a look at the Navy preparations in this area.
The United States military has the bulk of its fighting force in Afghanistan. Unknown to most Americans is the fact that there has been a mammoth and ongoing set of war games taking place off of nearly every inch of the three coastlines surrounding the United States. This has required a significant redeployment of Naval, Marine and Air Force assets to be in a constant state of military readiness. The conscious act of keeping most of ourNaval assets deployed outside of the continental United States is significant. It relates to the present crisis as a big domino that is ready to fall and it speaks to how soon all us will get to visit our new homes, AKA Fema camps.
Take a look at the following map. It was originally published by the Navy in an AFAST document. These Navy (i.e. Operation Red Flag) war games are so huge it has drawn the ire of the Congressional delegations of California, Oregon and Washington. I will be presenting this information in a future article and it ties in with what’s happening today as well as what lies ahead. Please allow me to present this as a riddle. Any guesses as to why this is taking place? While you are contemplating your answer, please note that the Navy has nearly every inch of coastline covered.
Navy Counter-Measures Against the Russian and Chinese Submarine Threat
Why would the Navy be in a permanent state of readiness by conducting unprecedented and an unparalleled set of war games continuously going on off of our three coastlines and several of our overseas territories? Guesses have ranged from positioning the Navy, Marines and a fair amount of the Air Force off the coast to keep Americans from running if they are put in harms way when martial law is declared. Some believe that this has to do with preparing to begin World War III. These are all interesting guesses, however, they are not correct and the answer will surprise everyone as I know it surprised me.
These ongoing war games have angered much of the Congressional delegations of California, Oregon and Washington. When these representatives got wind of what was coming back in 2009, prior to the Environmental Impact Statement, they organized. Ask yourself, one question, with several members of Congress opposing these massive ongoing war games that have now lasted for 6 years, why wasn’t this been reported on in the mainstream media? By the end of this article, you will be able to answer that question. In response to Congressional requests, NOAA was unwilling to intervene and stop the war games from going forward and these Congressman, now joined by Senators Boxer and Feinstein, approached the Secretary of the Navy, B. J. Penn, and he rejected their request tostop these war games out of hand as well.
The United States has the bulk of its land-based fighting units in Afghanistan which totals about 165,000 troops. In a civil war scenario, these troops have been negated. Now we see a significant part of our Navy engaged in this massive off shore exercise. Why? And another important question to be asking is whether or not, the ships and their subsequent military maneuvers are facing toward our coastlines or primarily away from them?
The US Navy says they are conducting sonar exercises. Sonar exercises? The U.S. Navy is not conducting sonar exercises beneath the ocean in preparing to fight “sensitive marine” inhabitants, unless the Navy is preparing to fight sensitive marine inhabitants that contain submarines armed with nuclear weapons and I am speaking specifically about the Chinese and Russians. In any civil war scenario, the Navy must be neutralized, so that they cannot come to the aid of the people, and this is what we are looking at here. The Navy has been preparing to be attacked if and when civil war comes to America. And isn’t it ironic and coincidental that the original Jade Helm document would identify Southern California to be a “hostile” area. And where, exactly, are most of these forces in question headquartered, in Southern California. The Jade Helm map is a civil war map.
Operation Red Flag -Nellis AFB
What kind of weapons system would be needed to help negate the naval threat posed by this adminnistration? Air power would be at the top of the list. Operation Red Flag commenced in January of 2015 and it involved foreign assets from countries such as the UK. This version of Red Flag is based at Nellis AFB.
It is clear that there are two versions of Red Flag and they are working in opposition to each other. Michael Savage, Alex Jones and myself are in agreement, that the country is headed for civil war. The mystery surrounding Jade Helm is beginning to fade.

Protect Whales During Navy Training Exercises
Deadline April 3, 2009
Please join us in sending the attached letter to Jane Lubchenco, Undersecretary for
Oceans and Atmosphere for the Department of Commerce, expressing support for the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s review of measures that could
reduce harm to whales and other marine mammals from the Navy’s use of mid-range
The Navy estimates that its sonar training activities will “take” marine mammals more
than 11.7 million times over the course of a five-year permit. The scale of these exercises
and the vulnerability of protected species to sonar make it imperative that NOAA
prescribe mitigation measures that will best protect marine mammals while still allowing
the Navy to train effectively.
For more information, or to co-sign the letter, please contact Jeb Berman (Rep.
Thompson, 53311) or Rob Cobbs (Rep. Waxman, 54407).

Dear Undersecretary Lubchenco:
On January 23, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
announced that it would conduct a comprehensive, 120-day review of measures to reduce
environmental harm from the Navy’s use of mid-frequency sonar in training exercises
and then report the results to the Council on Environmental Quality. We are writing to
encourage and express our strong support for this review process.
The sonar exercises at issue would take place off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, Hawaii,
Alaska and in the Gulf of Mexico – affecting literally every coastal state. In many
regions, the Navy plans to increase the number of training exercises or expand the areas
in which they may occur. Of particular concern are biologically sensitive marine habitats
off our coasts, such as National Marine Sanctuaries and breeding habitat for the
endangered North Atlantic right whale. In all, the Navy anticipates that its sonar
exercises will “take” marine mammals more than 2.3 million times per year, or 11.7
million times over the course of a 5-year permit.
Under these circumstances, it is essential that NOAA prescribe mitigation measures that
substantially reduce impacts on marine wildlife and habitat while allowing the Navy to
We are confident that NOAA’s review will identify the mitigation measures necessary to
minimize environmental impacts and improve monitoring of affected populations,
including the establishment of seasonal or geographic sonar exclusion areas that scientists
have identified as the most effective available means of protecting vulnerable species and
We appreciate your consideration of this important matter, and your efforts to improve
the health of our oceans.
