The Obama administration has labeled Texas as a “hostile state” as military training operations take place at various places across the country.
The U.S. Army Special Operations Command has filed a “Request to Conduct Realistic Military Training” to local officials in six states in which military personnel like Navy Seals will simulate to responding to domestic “insurgents” in an exercise known as JADE HELM 15.
“JH is a challenging eight-week joint military and interagency (IA) unconventional warfare (UW) exercise conducted throughout Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado,” says a PowerPoint proposal posted online by the Defense Department, adding that its aim is “to improve the Special Operations Forces’ UW capability as part of the national security strategy.”
The powerpoint also describes states like Texas and most of Utah as “hostile.” A portion of Southern California along the Mexico border is also described as “hostile,” and the powerpoint also says that this area contains an “insurgent pocket.”
It just so happens that each one of these states and areas are very much anti-Obama.
Meanwhile, Arizona is marked as “Uncertain: Leaning Friendly” while California, Nevada and Colorado are listed as “Permissive.” These states, of course, all support Obama.
The military trainings and labeling of conservative states as “hostile” has caused many to become suspicious of Obama’s motives. Some have even suggested that the military could be training for an imposition of martial law.
“A couple months ago the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) and FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) stated that the number one threat to the United States is none other than its own citizenry,” Joe McMaster wrote on his Freedom Outpost blog.
The military has denied this, however.
“This exercise is routine training to maintain a high level of readiness for Army Special Operations Forces because they must be ready to support potential missions anywhere in the world on a moment’s notice,” said Army Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria, a spokesman for SOC, before he confirmed the planned exercises.
