The Eyes of Texas…

Posted on: May 7, 2015

Dont mess Texasare upon you…and you, and you and YOU!

How else can you explain stories about transport trains for political enemies being taken to FEMA “reeducation camps” ?  Or the fact that Walmart, of all companies, is in cahoots with the Feds and has mysteriously closed some stores under strange circumstances and with phony stories about the closings? Or the fact that the citizens of Bastrop Texas told an Army Colonel to his face that he was lying.  This from a state that probably has more military bases than any other, employing thousands of Texans on those bases?

So what the hell is going on?  Why it’s simple:  Obama intends to put Texas under martial law!  Apparently the chatter from the right-wing wingnuts got so loud that the newly minted Texas governor responded to them (pandered perhaps?) and made an announcement that the Texas Guard would “monitor” Operation Jade Helm, or as Abbot said:  “It is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed upon,” .

You all know by now that this has begun to make a laughingstock of the “gret stet”, so much so that former state Rep. Todd Smith wrote to the guv and said:

“Your letter pandering to idiots … has left me livid,” former state Rep. Todd Smith wrote Abbott. “I am horrified that I have to choose between the possibility that my Governor actually believes this stuff and the possibility that my Governor doesn’t have the backbone to stand up to those who do.”

God or Goddess only knows that Texas politics, already well to the right of center took an even bigger move that way after the elections in 2014.  How huge a jump, we’re seeing now.

Things and thoughts and who knows what that used to be out there on the fringe orbiting around Pluto are now being accepted (by some) as totally legitimate and true.  Like this:

Texas Ranger Drops Jade Helm Bombshell: “There Are Trains With Shackles On Them”

And it comes from a website called and yes it stands for that abbreviation.  A letter from a “Texas Ranger” to a right-wing site and show.

A letter sent to Dave Hodges at The Common Sense Show by a concerned Texas Ranger indicates that the government is preparing for a scenario similar to what has been described in William Forstchen’s recent novella Day of Wrath in which ISIS terrorists cross the southern border of the United States and simultaneously attack soft targets across the nation.

and then here’s the money shot:

mess texas u n monitorsBut the letter doesn’t stop there. The Ranger, who has kept his identify private for obvious reasons and makes clear that the scope of Jade Helm is so secret that the intent is not completely clear, says that the JH15 mission objectives may go much farther than just preparing for terrorists. According to the law enforcement insider there are trains moving throughout Texas and some of them have been outfitted with shackles, presumably to “transport prisoners of some sort.” The claim adds further credence to a report about Jade Helm dissident roundups and arrests and widespread martial law declarations following an emergency.

And from the “actual letter”:

Texas idiot president

We have been warned!

Let me drop a bombshell that I have not seen you address. There are trains moving throughout Texas that have shackles inside some of the cars. I have not personally seen them, but I know personnel that have seen this. This indicates that these trains will be used to transport prisoners of some sort. I know from reading your articles that your default belief will be that these are for American political prisoners and will be transported to FEMA detention camps of some sort. We have been told by Homeland that these trains are slated for transporting captured terrorists, non-domestic. We are not sure we can trust this explanation because Homeland is keeping a lot from us and we are growing increasingly uncomfortable with their presence in Texas.

Now the “captured terrorists” claptrap concerns notions that there are ISIS camps just across the border in Mexico and that said terrorists will be launching attacks on the good ole U.S. of A.  And I’m not going any further into that one.

And about those closed Walmarts…

Well, those are going to be guerrilla warfare training centers in preparation for the “invasion”.


Walmart conga line

There can be no doubt that the internal events at Walmart holds the key to the end game of Jade Helm operations. Jade Helm and Walmart are inextricably linked and the existing evidence suggests one of two possible end game probabilities for Jade Helm.

1. Converted Walmart stores will be processing centers for FEMA camp political prisoners.

2. Some Walmarts will be used as supply and staging centers for an internal conflict within the United States.

And if you go to the site above, you will see pictures of (GASP!) shipping containers stacked by the closed Walmarts!  😯   The note below the pics says:
I do not know what this may mean, but I thought I’d share it with you guys.


If you wish, you can go to this site to read more about the mysterious closed Walmart stores.

And if you want to read some stuff about the connection between Jade Helm, ISIS and who knows who else, you can go here.

 So I’ll close with some wunnerful wunnerful Texas music and paranoia clips.

About the Walmart stores closing.

Jaden Helm, Walmart and DUMBS (Deep Underground Military Bases)

Could this song possibly explain a great deal?

Okay Widdershins, take this post wherever you would like it to go.  The thread is completely open.

Ya know, anything containing DUMB as an acronym should immediately raise suspicion.

Fiction is one thing, being out of touch with reality is another. One wayward soul on the street muttering nonsense is one thing, but a state full of wingnuts is quite another. A governor who, like Rick Perry, is just plain dumb is one thing, but a governor who, like Greg Abbott, is educated, calculating, and a master-panderer is most certainly another.

Texas is just another kind of place where delusional schizophrenic behavior is a socially desirable trait. Remarkably, TX might be the only place where that behavior is rewarded and encouraged. That might be the definition of Texas “exceptionalism.”

Excellent post Fredster.

Probably the easiest way to bring Texas to its knees would be through a military withdrawal. Close the thirty or so bases in the state and watch the fun begin.

Prolix: We can add our little “anchor baby” governor as another of the educated by pandering pols. Brown graduate (biology!)and Rhodes scholar yet panders to the bible thumpers who supported the “teach creationism” crap in La.

One of the things I love about the Republican clown car is that the more crowded it gets, the further down lil booby is pushed.

chat@3: Oh exactly! And I have to wonder how the soldiers and airmen and their families feel about this stuff.

Oops! I had forgotten to put in the clip of the Colonel at the Bastrop town hall meeting who was explaining the purpose of Jaden Helm to the citizens. I don’t suppose he’s too used to being called a bald-faced liar to his face.

I have been reading articles about this all day and every time I read one I still think, for real? WTF? For real? May need to watch Idiocracy again. Good lord.

@7: I know what you mean. The lunatics are in full control of the asylum. A friend from San Antonio advised that she was going out for more tin foil.

Hey Kim! Isn’t this stuff simply incredible?

@chat: Don’t have tin foil but I’m getting ready.

Either the majority of people in Texas are literally insane or there are a lot of people who just do not show up to vote. You would think people in Texas would get sick of being the butt of national jokes but apparently not. They seem to just double down on the stupidity. I know people who live there and are mortified by this kind of stuff but apparently there are not enough of them.

I’m wondering if Hillary has a chance of carrying GA in 2016. What do you think GA Gal?

I swing back and forth from being terrified of these paranoid people and LMAO at them. I loved the quote from the former Rep. too. It’s too bad the Colonel couldn’t yell “If we were declaring Marshall Law we wouldn’t have warned two months ago, bozos.”

@Ga6thDem: I’m guessing but probably in Texas, as in a number of other states, the Repubs in the state legislatures have gerrymandered the districts so that a Democrat has almost no chance to be elected in anything other than a majority-minority district.

It’s too bad the Colonel couldn’t yell “If we were declaring Marshall Law we wouldn’t have warned two months ago, bozos.”

LOL!!! Excellent point. 😆

B-R-E-A-K-I-N-G N-E-W-S on MSNBC concerning Tom Brady and his deflated balls. 🙄

Ga6th, unfortunately no. If the large AA population in this state could not bring it for Obama, I don’t think Hillary can win here. But at least we got rid of Paul Broun! I actually voted the Rep ticket in that primary because I knew I would vote for the Dems in the general. I voted for Perdue as least crazy for three reasons – he said abortion should be between a woman, her family and her doctor(shocker!) and he called his other opponent, Kingston (Gawd) stupid for using Newt’s line about kids getting free lunches should at least sweep the lunchroom floors. He also said guns do not belong on college campuses. So I held my nose and voted for him. Literally.

Good God. I had no idea they were THIS crazy there. They’ve gone beyond being a laughingstock, now they’re just scary. Fredster, excellent post!

What is the breaking news? I saw the agents statement earlier.

i watched the video at #6. Wow. Are all the liberals in Texas concentrated in Austin? I’ve only been to Houston, and that was a business trip, so I admit I have little knowledge about it.

annie@18: Oh the breaking news was that they had to interrupt a news show for that crap.

Don’t know if all the libs are in Austin but a lot are and from what I saw on a news show one night, I don’t even think they’ve got a Dem congressman there because of the gerrymandering.

annie, see this:

Austin has portions of six districts and Austinites don’t come close to comprising the majority of residents in any of them. In contrast, the nation’s 10 more populous cities have at least one such district.

I think one of them is a Democrat.

In next year’s annual rewriting of TX history school books, the great Jade Helm internment will be described in great detail. It will have a lot of first person accounts of being held in the plumbing sections of Wal-Marts. It will have pictures of self-adhesive readable bar code labels affixed to foreheads. There will be pictures of yellow rose fields being mowed down for ACLU reintegration centers. And there will be rumors of how sex education was being taught in the young adult section of the Wal-Marts without the benefit of cabbage plants, but those rumors will go unsubstantiated.

Prolix, LOL! I never even heard of Jade Helm until Fredsters post.

Yes, the gerrymandering is terrible. I remember Colbert did a great piece on it, and I think Stewart also.

Can you imagine if you are a fifteen-year-old girl on Facebook and your name is Jade Helm?

Man, looking around the tubes there are a lot of O progressives teed off tonite about O going to Nike’s Oregon headquarters tomorrow to promote this TPP deal. Nike? How tone deaf do you have to be? Here’s a piece of a comment (it’s Hillary’s fault don’t ‘ya know)

He’s overlooking one thing: maybe he and his wall st minions within his administration can feel it’s safe to give a fuck you to the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, and maybe they’re right that there’s nothing we can do to punish them, but we can sure take it out on Hillary and we will. Bernie Sanders for President or fuck what happens

Prolix@25: Hahahahahaaa! 😆

@Gagal-27: (sigh) I hate the millennials. That’s such an enlightened p.o.v.

Fredster, I’m with them on the TPP visit, but really that comment just gotta giggle out me. No one could convince me to vote for Obama so they can vote for whoever they want.

@25, Hilarious!

Gagal@30: I suppose point taken…

@GA Gal well, I have to wonder because the AA vote is never going to be enough to carry the state. Obama missed it by about 5 and 7 points so a swing of 3.5 points could put it into play. I think there are people here who would vote for Hillary but not Obama like here in the suburbs but it also would depend on who the GOP nominates. If enough women the suburbs swing their votes to her it is a possibility. It is definitely not going to be south GA that is going to bring GA into the blue column. We’re supposed to be reaching swing state status in 2020 and but we shall see.

chat@33: and look who decided he needed to just stir up some more shite and paranoia with this.

Sen. Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican who is running for president, said Texans were right to be worried.

“You know, I understand the concern that’s been raised by a lot of citizens about Jade Helm,” Cruz told Bloomberg on Saturday during the South Carolina Republican Party’s annual convention. “It’s a question I’m getting a lot. And I think part of the reason is, we have seen for six years a federal government disrespecting the liberty of the citizens, and that produces fear. When you see a federal government that is attacking our free speech rights, our religious liberty rights, our Second Amendment rights, that produces distrust as to government.”

I think I’m stealing this from Jon Stewart but the folks in Texas have more to worry about with this guy than they do Jaden Helm.

chat@36: Best line from the daily beast piece:

Never fear, citizens of the Southwest: Rand Paul is going to make sure the military doesn’t take over your Whataburgers.

@39: I will rest better just knowing that Whataburger is safe for democracy.

@chat: Yeah, just gives you a warm and safe feeling, doesn’t it?

Warmer than a fresh, toasty Whataburger.

You know, as long as Obama is in the mood to sign Executive Orders, maybe he could sign one ceding Texas back to Mexico…………..
