Most conspiracy theories live and die on the Internet, on the ragged fringes of message boards and blogs. Rarely do they migrate to what we (perhaps misleadingly) call the real world. And rarely do they merit the notice of our leaders. That may be changing. On April 28, Texas Governor Greg Abbott ordered the Texas State…

U.S. Army trainers: “Fire in the hole! Missiles away” Oops…
Texas State Guard ‘monitors’: “Incoming!” Ka-Boom! Splat!

Hang on Texas. Help is on the way.

Let’s be blunt; these paranoid goobers are just plain dumb. In fact, they are so dimwitted that a case can be and should be made that they should have absolutely no say in governance.

The scary thing is that they have a mob mentality and feed off of one another’s paranoia …they are armed to the teeth and very willing to uses their penis extensions

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, who is seeking to become the next president of the United States, told Bloomberg his office “reached out to the Pentagon to inquire” about Jade Helm.
This sh!t is scary.

Can any of these morons name a single person who has had a single gun confiscated? That seems to be the biggest rallying point, once they found out that Obamacare is actually good for them.

I’m thinking that it just might be a real fear for them
Remember, Texas has oil. Texas gave us an idiot who invaded a place for oil.
That might be their mindset….
Toxins from fracking has gotten into their drinking water.

I don’t know how….but the politicians in Texas seem to get nuttier by the minute.

When the exercise is over, all the military personnel have returned to their bases and life for everyone has continued as normal, will any of these idiots have the integrity to step up to the mic and admit they were wrong?
Or will they simply continue the madness by proclaiming that fascist suppression was prevented only because “patriots” had the courage to speak out.
I have said it time and time again. The main reason my wife and I own guns, is to be able to defend our home against the black helicopter lunatics who believe this nonsense. No telling what kind of insanity these people are capable of.

If we did level Texas, would anyone notice?

Would anyone care?

I always find the idea that some Americans are unaware that when they say they distrust the government, they’re saying they distrust themselves. It’s as if they cannot see a connection between the politicians they vote into office and their distrust of the government. They send the idjits to Congress and to state legislatures, then they turn right around and say, “I don’t trust you to run the government.” Something else that pisses me off are politicians encouraging fringers to distrust the very government they are a part of or want to lead. It’s like they’re hanging a big red sign with white letters around their necks that say, “Don’t Trust Me, But I Want to Lead Your Government.” I never cease to be amazed at the ignorance of individuals like these Jade Helm conspirators. They probably voted for Cruz, Rand Paul, Abbott, etc., because they “trusted” them more than the democrats who ran against them. These individuals are the government, and it’s stupid for them to now say they don’t trust them when they voted them into office! I can only conclude that their “trust” in those they elected is only transitory. SMDH.

Frank Lloyd Wright used say that if you turned the US on end …everything loose would roll to California…today I think he would say that everything loose would settle into Texas,,,

One of the many problems with Texas isn’t that it is a red state.
It is a no vote state. They have one of the worst turnouts during elections.
It’s difficult to determine to what precise extent Texas’s new voter ID law is to blame for the poor turnout, but “there are somewhere between 600,000 and 1.4 million registered voters in Texas without state ID,”
the right to vote a basic right. But legislators in Texas and Georgia and elsewhere, who have targeted the most vulnerable in our society, disagree.
