The Texas military will deploy during Jade Helm military exercises later this year to monitor federal troops and prevent the government from declaring martial law, under orders from the governor.
The Jade Helm 15 military exercises scheduled to take place across several southwest states has some residents afraid for their individual property rights and has also set the right wing blogosphere aflame with rumor.
To help quell resident’s fears Gov. Greg Abbot has decided to deploy the Texas State Guard, a group of reservists only called up in time of emergency, to monitor federal troops.
However, that has done little to ease the fear of local citizens who even see the abrupt closing of several Walmart’s as a government plot.
