Jade Helm: What if conspiracy theorists finally got it right? - Standard-Examiner
"...In and of themselves, these eight scenarios prove nothing. But combine them with the recently released flyby photo of Pluto from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft, and it's difficult to shrug off the mounting coincidences: An obviously unretouched photo of the minor planet reveals it looks suspiciously like an Imperial Death Star.Still not convinced? Consider the bread-crumb-like clues the government left in the term itself, Jade Helm 15. Jade, of course, being another word for green. And helm meaning to steer something. Thus Jade Helm is actually code for Green Steer, whose letters can then be rearranged to read Regent Seer. So obviously, we're talking about a plan to install a prophetic ruler to control the country in the absence of its rightful leader...." see full article

Jade Helm just another way for haters to hate on Obama - SunHerald.com
"...Maybe some folks are scared the military is planning some sort of a takeover disguised as a training exercise in the southern U.S.But for a lot of them, it is clear Jade Helm is just another way to hate on President Barack Obama.Obama, after all, is the puppetmaster pulling the strings for Jade Helm. Why? Well after the "invasion" and "uprising" he'll be able to stay in power forever. Obama is certainly the villian on the Facebook page Operation Jade Helm and Beyond, where this morning someone posted: The president's own? We belong to this Country ... Marines are called the presidents (sic) own. So why was one of the presidents own locked up in Mexico."Read more here: http://www.sunherald.com/2015/06/04/6260002_jade-helm-just-another-way-for.html?rh=1#storylink=cpy..." see full article

Questions About Jade Helm - York News-Times
"...Everything from domestic spying to the imposition of martial law, detention of citizens with political views opposite those of the White House, and desensitization of citizens to a military presence are all feared as the purpose or outcome of the exercise.On one hand, there really shouldn't be much to worry about from our own military. Perhaps that's my opinion because I know so many still serving. It's quite difficult to envision them making war against the rest of us. It seems like an impossible stretch.They are serious about their oath to the Constitution, not the much loathed occupant of the White House. There is a difference.Furthermore, this has been a discussion in military circles for more than a decade. In preparation for deployment to places like Iraq and Afghanistan, training along the southern border has been discussed. It would be realistic and valuable in preparation for those wars.The terrain and climate are similar. The foe (drug cartels) was decentralized, violent, and oppressing a civilian population, much like Islamic terrorists overseas. Both situations were and still are counterinsurgency operations...." see full article

How Alex Jones' deranged Jade Helm conspiracy became an unstoppable ... - Salon

"...This is where the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party has landed: backstopping ludicrous tall tales marketed by a known flim-flam artist who's earning a fortune by cynically exploiting the na vet and paranoia of his listeners. At the end of the day, it seems rather obvious that Gohmert is engaging in a version of the badly exploitative Alex-Jones business model; and, in return, he's giving Alex Jones more scaffolding upon which to build additional levels on top of the theory.Again, this can't be emphasized enough: Gohmert is a sitting member of the U.S. Congress.Sleep tight...." see full article

The Wise Men of Jade Helm - Huffington Post

"...The far- right wing Texas politicians, including the Governor, who apparently believe that a military exercise called "Jade Helm" is really a pretext for an Obama-led takeover of their state is nothing more than the Chelmites at it again. They have gone so far as to assert go that the Obama Administration is digging secret detention centers and tunnels under abandoned Walmarts...." see full article

4 Texas Republicans Sympathetic Over Operation Jade Helm 15 Fears - Bloomberg
"...For the past two weeks, Operation Jade Helm 15, a month-long, seven-state military training exercise, has preoccupied conspiracy theorists such as Alex Jones, frightened many local residents, and, now, elicited sympathy from some notable Texas Republicans. Despite a flurry of denials from military representatives and White House press secretary Josh Earnest that the exercise is any different than those conducted in the past, the rumors of an imminent military takeover have proven difficult to extinguish. In part, that may be because some elected officials, both past and present, have seemed to give the theories credence...." see full article

Our View: Net fuels Jade Helm paranoia - Standard-Examiner
"...Rumors have swept over the Internet and into town hall meetings that Jade Helm 15 is a ruse, or a dress rehearsal, or an outright move to an eventual hostile takeover by the government. That's nonsense, of course, but unfortunately, in the age of the Internet, paranoia thrives at the expense of common sense. In Texas, the governor of the state, Greg Abbott, a Republican, has asked the Texas State Guard to keep an eye of Jade Helm 15 when the exercise starts in his state...." see full article

A responsible answer to the What do you think about Jade Helm? question that Cruz and other right wing candidates will apparently face throughout this year is I don't think anyone needs to worry about an Army training exercise instead let's worry about the economy, or literally anything else.

"...Whatever Jade Helm 15 actually is, I think it is more than coincidental that the FBI director just confessed in February that the presence of ISIS can be felt in all 50 states of the U.S. and that the Pentagon is suddenly running its biggest military training exercise with every branch of the military across seven Southwestern states. Whether deterrence, display of power or something more covert or devious, let's not come with any patronizing nonsense of impotence and simplicity when its origin is in Washington...." see full article
