From Conservative Tribune: Conspiracy theorists aren’t the only ones who aren’t fully buying the official reasons given for the large-scale military exercise code-named “Jade Helm 15,” a multi-state war simulation with mysterious intentions.
Some believe President Barack Obama’s feds have a more sinister reason behind the large training operation.
Whether that was a factor or not in Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s decision to have his Texas State Guard monitor the federal exercise is anyone’s guess, but the decision from the governor’s office was completely unexpected and more than welcome from residents of his state who believe there’s more to Jade Helm 15 than meets the eye.
“I’ve ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor Jade Helm 15 to safeguard Texans’ constitutional rights, private property & civil liberties,” Gov. Abbott recently announced on Twitter, letting Obama know that the fine men and women of the Texas State Guard will have eyes on the operation.
In a letter to the commander of the Texas State Guard, Gov. Abbott wrote, “During the training operation, it is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property right and civil liberties will not be infringed. I am directing the Texas State Guard to monitor Operation Jade Helm 15.”
U.S. Army Special Operations Command announced Jade Helm in March, with a start date in July. The operation will last until sometime in September.
Part of Jade Helm includes the labeling of the designated training states as either permissive, hostile, uncertain (leaning friendly) and uncertain (leaning hostile).
It should come as no surprise that the state of California was labeled as “permissive” and Texas was labeled as “hostile,” which is another reason residents of Texas counties involved are more concerned about the true nature of Jade Helm 15.
While military officials visited the counties with the most concern, such as Bastrop County in Texas, and fielded a variety of questions from anxious residents, Gov. Abbott told military leaders, “We aren’t accusing, we’re just watching.” (H/T Joe For America)
No matter the true intent of Jade Helm 15, we salute the Texas governor for standing up and at the very least, taking precautionary measures just in case there’s more to the operation than meets the eye.
It’s not the soldiers they don’t trust, it’s the man in the Oval Office giving the orders.
