Over the last few months, we have been reporting on Operation Jade Helm, a military training exercise set to take place across Texas this summer in which military personnel will operate covertly among the American public.
Many see this as a dry run for martial law and have connected it to the mysterious Walmart closings. Since the operation was announced, patriotic Texans have been letting their uncomfortable feelings about this known all across the state.
Now, Texan leaders are coming forward to let it be known that they are not comfortable with Obama’s Jade Helm operation. Bastrop County Republican Party Chairman Albert Ellison recently said that many Texans believe that the military operation is a dry run for Obama to impose martial law. He cited the fact that Obama was “was raised by communists and mentored by terrorists” in explaining why he has “painted a portrait in the minds of many conservatives that he is capable of this sort of thing.”
According to Conservative Tribune, Ellison went on to say that Obama has repeatedly slammed Texans as “nuts and wackos,” when they are really just “concerned citizens” and “patriots.” Ellison also attacked Obama for accusing Texans of being against the military when they voice their Jade Helm suspicions.
Bastrop County Tea Party head Terry Wareham has said that this could not be further from the truth.
“We’re not against the military,” she told reporters. “This community is very supportive of the military. But who’s the commander in chief of the military?”
Wareham is absolutely right. It is Obama who has shown time and time again that he is against the military, so why should we trust any type of military operation he’s carrying out on our soil?
Given Obama’s track record, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Texans are so suspicious of Jade Helm.
