Do These 5 Reasons Explain Why Hundreds of Walmart Stores Are Really Closing? [VIDEO]

Why is Walmart receiving money from the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Department of Homeland Security? Why are tanks and humvees being stored at Walmarts throughout the U.S.? Is the government in the process of transforming Walmarts into detention centers? Is this why hundreds of Walmarts have been closed in the last year?

This documentary suggests that the answers to these questions is yes, and presents five reasons why Walmart stores are really closing suddenly, recently, and en-masse nationwide.

Over the past year, Walmart closed several hundred stores as a part of what it described as “portfolio management.” Some might argue the store closings were due to the economy. Granted, in 2016, 10 percent of Walmart stores closed in Brazil, which is spiraling into an economic depression. But in the U.S., the hundreds of closed Walmart stores were gutted for odd reasons given. For example, in 2015, Walmart closed five stores because of “plumbing problems.”

The documentary also points to Google “accidentally leaking” in March 2016, a map of the entire United States pinpointing the locations of each Walmart store that was permanently closed, including supercenters, neighborhood markets, and express stores. No other businesses were “permanently closed” located on the map.

One of the reasons the documentary points to is that Walmart has had numerous contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) — going back to the early 2000s. Interestingly, the DOD began using Walmart as a forefront, (and storefront) for biometric and RFID technology. The documentary reports that in 2012-2013 Walmart introduced SoloHealth stations throughout their stores under the auspices of an “Obamacare” initiative. The RFID scanning technology offered through Walmart acted as a test pilot to collect data on thousands of people.
