Well if Chuck Norris is worried about it, then you know it's absolutely nothing.

He's almost as bad as Clint Eastwood talking to a chair.

You know people I love conspiracies but this thing going on in texas and the response of people in Texas is the most ridiculous thing I ever heard.

I can not believe the amount of ignorance some people have.

My husband is a retiree and in all the years he was in the service and doing all kind of exercises in some state I don't remember him been assigned to wag war on any states.

Paranoia, I think is more, is stupidity and ignorance.

I live in GA and close to Fort Benning and in all the years I been here and Fort Bernning been called the school of the Americans I am still waiting for the take over of state.

Hi Marg-

I get how people think this is ridiculous but I live in Dallas and local news has reported a few snippets here and there about this 'outcry' to Jade Helm.

Some people who attended the meeting (over 200 people showed up) in Bastrop had legitimate concerns about the exercise destroying their property and listing the state as 'hostile'. The people who were interviewed did not know who Alex Jones was but was distrustful of Congress and this current administration. Six years of lies from our President, the illegal immigrant situation, etc...has made quite a few people leery. It's an understandable distrust.

Of course, alternative news is screaming about an Obama takeover and how Governor Abbott is paranoid about a takeover, too. Being Abbott's first year he is trying to strike a balance between listening to his voters and still allowing the military to perform the exercise. He's not stopping the exercise or backing out (like Colorado did). Understand that Governor Abbott is still new and trying to learn and feel comfortable in his new position.

That being said, I don't think this is going to be a takeover. I would be willing to entertain the thought that there's more going on than a simple exercise. Maybe they're preparing for a foreign threat (like the exercise states) from our border. We did have a terror attack in Garland, after all...

The army officer that spoke at the Bastrop Country public town hall meeting a couple of weeks ago said that the area would be graced with a couple of humvees and about 70 troops operating on private land. Bastrop is not a logical place to start if you wanted to take over Texas with the mentioned equipment and manpower.

Jade Helm 15 is really is a hard situation to spin into doom porn, but some of those active creators never quit until they move on to their next end of the world scenario. Can doom porners please shut the hell up and wait to seen what transpires?

Chuck Norris is a good martial arts practitioner, a poor actor, and an abysmal political pundit, elevator shoes and all. Why would the Federal government want to 'take over' any state? Did Texas secede, yet?

You people di realize that other countries have exercises on their home soil all the time right. Maybe theres a reason for that. Like idanno increasing numbers of hostile forces to the us. If they are training to fight on home soil I think the least of your worries should be civil war. Maybe in actuality its invasion. Which seems much more likely than the united states government for some reason starting a war with its own people. You guys know that sounds idiotic right? Unless theres some bad ass militia that's thousands of men strong, that no one knows about, threatening the fed with a war then its not going to happen. There is no reward for starting a civil war in your own country. None what so ever.

Stop listening to Alex Jones, calm your tits, and expand your awareness to what's going on in the rest of the world. And also use some logic. Ask yourself what the us has to gain from starting a war with its own people. And if you come up with something think about it real hard and see if it holds up under some scrutiny.

I was part of the OPFOR at JRTC at ft. Polk. I was part of the cooperative nugget exercises multiple times. Been part of the SOF training side of things a couple of times. Google them I don't feel like explaining.

That's one of the things about jade helm I don't like. There is so much room out in "the box" at ft.polk. There are also multiple mock cities there. Theres more than enough area and enough scenario actors there that they don't need to go anywhere else. I don't get why the military has to go to such a widespread area.

Most of my former army buddies are suspicious of this. Well we are suspicious of almost anything our government does.

I agree with you in part, but......

The military has sufficient training grounds to conduct this training. A average US citizen should never ever see a soldier or military hardware on their streets unless we are being invaded.

While I don't really think that martial law is coming or Obama wants to be king, I think there is cause for concern and skepticism.

Always. But jumping to conclusions never leads anywhere. Personally I think they just want to get people used to seeing the army in the streets. Maybe to get the peoples support, kinda like how NATO was doing in Latvia. Maybe its to intimidate people, in the case that america is invaded I don't think they want Americans turning coat, or maybe that are trying to prevent a civil war. Maybe its just contingency planning.

Whatever they are doing its shady but its not starting a civil war. And its only kind of enacting martial law. Its like soft marshal law.

Good luck, go on ahead and come down to Texas and try to take it militarily,(not saying jade helm is anything other than a military exercise but in the absolute small chance it is) special forces boys, hostile is an underevalution .

Oh right, I am afraid if that happened your *ss would get handed to you in pieces by the U.S. Military. I've always heard everything is big in Texas but I didn't know that meant heads.

Desensitization slowly over time. They use fear as the motivator and catalyst. Get the fools used to the military on the street also create military grade units inside the police forces.

Men like Hitler did not just rise to power and take it over night.....Look back and follow the timelines and control points needed to really take over a country. It could take another 5-10 years to get everything into place in the US.

I know people normally not associated with conspiracy theory know about this exercise and are frightened by it.

Were they frightened by the last 24 yearly exercises or just this one?

I hate to be "one of those people", but once the guns go its over.

There are a lot of patriots in the military, and I think that population is growing. With that said if you don't think you military will turn on you remember Kent state.

I agree the US is military is the real deal and no force in the world can defeat it conventionally......That being said the US military is made up of US citizens so it is mute point to some degree.

The US military as it stands now is not going to go after the US citizens......It will not happen. Unless the US military has been training none US citizens and has them in large numbers or they have the Borg.

Walker: Texas Conspiracy theorist?

Mock military drills happen all the time-you can't have military readiness if your armed forces sit around and twiddle their thumbs.

America is not the only nation to carry out military exercises and many of them are joined ventures. I don't see how this particular operation is any more of a threat than the dozens that have preceded it.
