White House dismisses rumors of Texas takeover; Texas Governor orders Guard to ‘monitor’ Federal Troop Drills

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor Federal Troop movements as the White House prepares for a two-month training exercise that involves labeling Texas and Utah as “Hostile” States.

Operation Jade Helm will bring Federal troops, including Navy Seals, Green Berets and the 82nd airborne division to Texas and a number of other southwestern states for simulated special operations in a hostile territory. While the military routinely trains for urban combat, many became concerned after leaked military documents categorized Texas and Utah as “Hostile” States.

Today the White House tried to tap down fears by saying the training operation is no cause for alarm.

“In no way will the constitutional rights or civil liberties of any American citizen be infringed upon while this exercise is being conducted,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

But apparently Texas Governor Greg Abbott isn’t so sure.

In a letter to Major General Gerald Betty of the Texas State Guard, Gov. Abbott asked the Guard “to address concerns of Texas citizens.”

“During the training operation, it is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property right and civil liberties will not be infringed,” the governor wrote. “I am directing the Texas State Guard to monitor Operation Jade Helm 15.”

An Increasing number of Military Drills are using American Citizens as Theoretical Threats.

Over the last couple of years these types of drills seem to be increasing in regularity. Just last month, National Guard troops in California used crisis actors to play the role of angry U.S. citizens shouting “right-wing” rhetoric at the soldiers. These drills seem to align with a 2012 report, prepared for the Department of Homeland Security, which talked about how the military could be used as a police force within the United States.

That report, titled Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A “Vision” of the Future, outlined theoretical situations where the U.S. Army could be sent into U.S. cities that have been taken over by Tea Party “insurrectionists.

In 2013, the Ohio Army National Guard 52nd Civil Support Unit conducted a training drill where Second Amendment supporters with “anti-government” opinions were portrayed as domestic terrorists.

  1. This will ultimately end in another civil war, but the next time, we civilized folks in the north will call on our NATO allies to help us exterminate the seditionist virus altogether, down to the last coiled strands of seditionist DNA. Texas will be depopulated and returned to Mexico.

    • Bring your Yankee ass and NATO blue berets to Texas. Have your Obamacare ID card with you so you can get medical care.

      • What he said makes no sense because NATO is helping with the exercise. So they are not going to help in any way shape or form. I saw video proof that they are. UN ambulances sitting in waiting for when this starts. Thats a red flag in my book. THERE IS NO UN COMING TO HELP!!!

    • William,

      Tell you what. Why don’t you just let us “uncivilized” folks go our own way and you go yours? THAT would be the “civilized” thing to do.

      I think you should know that the population of Texas (alone) is about 27,000,000. Most of us have guns and know how to use them. How large is your army? Also, many of “your” army was recruited from southern states. Do you really think that your MIT and Harvard grads would stand a chance? I look at the “60 nation coalition” Obama put together and ask, “How has THAT worked out?” I suspect NATO would be just as effective.

      You know what we say about the civil war here?

      “Who won the civil war?”

      “Don’t know, it ain’t over yet.”

      always,
      tony

      • William Burgess Leavenworth may God have mercy on your soul…God Bless Texas and Dixie…Deo Vindice!

    • I am from Michigan and we will stand with Texas. Our once blue state has a nice shade of red to it now. And not all of us in the north will be helping nato.

      • Im from minnesota and at least i will stand with the great people and state of texas. This is the attitude that everyone should have in my opinion.

    • You retard the UN is helping with this exercise. I saw video proof that they are. There is UN ambulances waiting untill this starts. Please go and do some more research before you make a comment that makes you look like a fool.

    • It is thinking like yours that will cause conflict among American Citizens, effectively splitting the American people into factions so the government can defeat any uprising and take complete control of us.

  2. Saw some reserve/guard mix their training up with some SF guys at Ft Bragg one time, didn’t turn out very well for them. Its certainly a interesting choice of units their using. All highly capable and specific with what they can accomplish. I wouldn’t want to be the guard unit with second hand gear trying to tell them what they can and cannot do. The only thing their missing is some Rangers and that would make one hell of a party.

  3. I am happy to see this happening, military needs to step in to do the job of protection of the United States from the ignorant rhetoric that’s wrecking America, like the problem from minorities we witnessed in Ferguson and Baltimore. These tirades and troublemakers should be gathered up and sent to Gitmo.

  4. Smooth, I think the natl guard is to be used for monitoring of the troop actions – not actually for interventions. Texas cant just sit by and be intimidated by the worst/weakest president in our nation’s history. But you are right, the groups mentioned are highly selective, which should alarm every American citizen. So many sheep here could care less because our government will always take care of them. They may think that living free is over-rated as they do their drugs and steal from their neighbor. One thing’s for certain, our government is sending us the message that it is prepared to fight and kill its own citizens if need be. Its using our deadloest to send us the message to stay in line. Calling Texas and Utah “hostile states” causes justified uneasiness. The sheep need to open up their eyes. If people are willing to give up their own freedoms, then fine, but don’t tell others they have to give up theirs. Our fathers bled and died for our freedoms. Lets not forget America had this fight once before and we became a nation because of it.

  5. It’s a funny thing.

    With all the “right wing” and tea party gatherings, demonstrations, and protests, nobody was ever hurt nor property damaged. The most remarkable thing was that the area was left clean, often cleaner than before the gathering.

    With all the “left wing” protests by the “occupy” group, and others, people are raped and killed, buildings and cars are burned, and stores looted.

    Yet, the government wants to “crack down” on the “right wing”.

    What’s wrong with that picture?

    Are they making an error or do they have a hidden agenda?

  6. William the Obama lover is just a Commie plant to cause hate.. People across America North, South ,East & West are already to light up the Feds.. IF the Special Forces Troops and the “ALL-Americans ” do attack U.S. Citizens I’ll be willing to bet that the O.I.C. are Minorities as well as the majority of participating troops.. Brainwashed to get the “EVIL WHITEY”..by The current Admin.

  7. uhm.. I doubt the north would win, cause it would be a MUCH smaller north this time. and frankly when it’s over will probably be given to Canada.

    IMO I am a northerner, from Minnesota, and even I wouldn’t join a NATO/US Spec Ops force to suppress fellow Americans. I would join texas and send some 223/556 into the invading foreign troops as well as maybe some 7.62/308win and 9mm

  8. In talking with some of my old working buddies in the federal government, they have been hearing that this rehearsal is about one thing–water redistribution. The feds are extremely concerned about the lack of water for irrigating crops and have been in discussions to nationalize all water resources in America to be redistributed as they feel fit. Those states with large water reserves can expect to see restrictions just as severe as those in California in the near future.

  9. What a bunch of redneck dumbasses! Well folks, it’s now late Sept. 2015 and the Feds still haven’t taken over your precious states. I know, I know…. we can thank the Texas Guard, Oathkeepers, the Bundy ranch hands, and our Lord and Savior. Had it not been for their Devine and courageous intervention the Feds would know own all this desert oasis. What a bunch of embarrassing idiots “ya’ll” turned out to be.
