BREAKING: Texas Governor Combats Obama’s “Martial Law” Exercises With Major Order to State Guard

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott no longer trusts the federal government. On Tuesday, he told the Texas State Guard to monitor a U.S. military training exercise.

The war simulation, code named “Jade Helm 15,” has been taking place since July in Texas and six other states.

However, rumors that the exercise was a cover for a planned military takeover and the implementation of martial law by the Obama administration have been spread by conspiracy theorists over social media.

Abbott’s orders to the Guard came one day after more than 200 people in Bastrop County met with the U.S. Army commander. They wanted to know if the government was planning to declare martial law and confiscate firearms from citizens.

Bastrop County is 30 miles southeast of Austin and the site of Jade Helm 15 in Texas.

Bastrop County Judge Paul Pape believes people are getting carried away by the fear mongers.

“It’s sad when people’s greatest fear is their own government,” the judge said. “Think about the ramification of that. If Americans go to sleep at night worrying whether their own government is going to sell them out before morning, it’d be hard to sleep.”

The rumors were fueled by some websites that showed a map designating Texas, Utah and parts of California as “hostile” territory and targets of the military personnel involved in Jade Helm 15.

Pape believes Abbott’s recent order should not further excite the conspiracy theorists as he considers it a prudent call by the governor to assure Texans that Jade Helm 15 will not interfere with their lives.

In implementing the order, Abbott wrote, “It is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed. By monitoring the operation on a continual basis, the State Guard will facilitate communications between my office and the commanders of the operation to ensure that adequate measures are in place to protect Texans.”

Jade Helm 15 involves 1,200 soldiers from all branches of the military. The military maintains that the topography of the areas being used for the exercise is ideal for replicating foreign combat zones.
