Texans monitor Jade Helm military training amid fears of government plot. The two-month exercise has been described by the US military as a routine, though unusually large, training event for a variety of units that will take place on both private and public land in order “to practice core special warfare tasks, which help protect the nation against foreign enemies”.

One thing we have to constantly remind people is that a Republican President and Republican Congress did the majority of this lockdown that’s now happening in America. So, for those Republicans out there who think this is all Barack Obama’s doing, no. It’s the federal government.

This could all be a moot point if we didn’t have this defense bill amendment, allowing the U.S. Military to operate inside the United States under the guise of fighting the War on Terror. Now you have military operations like this happening inside the United States because the defense bill had this amendment slapped on it that all the illustrious Democrats and Republicans voted for.

All this paranoia in Texas in some ways may be justified. They ought to keep an eye on it.Maybe it's a dress rehearsal for martial law. Many things they do are. Remember this: the government likes to practice first before they implement it.
