Revered action movie star, martial arts legend and conservative rock star Chuck Norris has publicly challenged President Barack Obama’s true intentions for the upcoming multi-state military special operations training exercise known as Jade Helm 15.
The former star of “Walker, Texas Ranger” expressed his concerns about the military op alongside Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott, who ordered the Texas State Guard to observe and monitor activities conducted during Jade Helm in the state of Texas.
“We must never check our brains or blindly trust, especially the government. Rather, we must fight until our dying breaths for liberty, especially when it appears those in power are trying to knock down Old Glory,” Norris wrote in a recent op-ed for WND.
Norris supported Abbott’s orders to monitor the operation and praised Sen. Cruz, saying, “I’m glad Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is asking the tough questions of the Pentagon about Jade Helm 15, particularly because its ‘exercises’ come too near to my ranch’s backdoor.”
While using his star power and huge platform to make fellow Texans aware of the fact that he agrees that the operation smells funny, he had an alternative suggestion for the Pentagon if it insists on holding such a large-scale exercise.
“If the government insists on running expanded military ops across seven Southwest states, why doesn’t it move all that ‘military training’ south and protect our borders at the same time?” Norris asked in his op-ed.
Pentagon spokesman, Col. Steve Warren told CNN Monday that American citizens had nothing to worry about, saying “Jade Helm is a long planned and coordinated exercise. We are not taking over anything.” (H/T Biz Pac Review)
Because, you know, with the high level of transparency from Obama’s administration, we’re totally sure they would tell us in advance if they were planning on taking over a state.
When intelligent folks like Norris and people in the know like Sen. Cruz and Gov. Abbott are warning people to stay alert when Jade Helm 15 kicks off in July, it probably behooves American citizens to pay attention to what they have to say.
