AUSTIN -- Following discussions aimed at ensuring Texans are fully informed on Operation Jade Helm 15, Governor Greg Abbott today met with Major General Gerald “Jake” Betty, Commander of the Texas State Guard, and directed him to monitor the Operation.

Governor Abbott directed General Betty to provide regular updates to the Governor’s Office to ensure that Texans’ “safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed” during the eight-week training period from July 2015 -- September 2015.

According to the U.S. Military: Operation Jade Helm 15 is a planned military exercise that will be led by the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), and will include personnel from the U.S. Army Special Forces Command (Green Berets), U.S. Navy SEALS, U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command, USMC Marine Special Operations Command, USMC Marine Expeditionary Units, the 82nd Airborne Division and civilian interagency partners. This Operation will take place over an eight-week period beginning in July of 2015 in locations across the State of Texas and neighboring states New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado.

New Guy ..... I never realized that you might be a fan of Alex Jones. Have you enlisted as a soldier in the 'Info wars'? BTW, if you connect the dots in the incorrect order, you end up with a distorted picture.

Remember, report all homeless vets in SA wearing old field jackets. It's just a clever covert action. :-)

And you people thought that those wearing camo in the mall were just making a fashion statement. I don't fear the camo people as much as those wearing tin foil hats. LOL

Look up USSOCOM and see if you can connect the dots.
