Congressman Louie Gohmert has called for changes to the Jade Helm military exercise, arguing that the labeling of Texas and Utah as “hostile” states in Army documents related to the drill is “suspicious,” while suggesting that the federal government is trying to “provoke a fight” with citizens.
“Once I observed the map depicting ‘hostile,’ ‘permissive’ and ‘uncertain’ states and locations, I was rather appalled that the hostile areas amazingly have a Republican majority and believe in the sanctity of the United States Constitution,” writes Gohmert.
The Congressman also makes it clear that he “understands” concerns that the exercises may be preparation for martial law-style scenarios, noting that the Obama administration has repeatedly expressed animosity towards constitutionalists, veterans and Christians.
“The map of the exercise needs to change, the names on the map need to change, and the tone of the exercise needs to be completely revamped so the federal government is not intentionally practicing war against its own states.”
The DC Clothesline brings us the update above that puts some voice to the valid concerns of citizens in these respective states.
I thought what Chuck Norris had to say about Jade Helm 15 was very interesting.
