AS REPORTED BY RT:
Chuck Norris has urged the public to ask Washington for “transparency” about Jade Helm 15, a major US military training exercise to be held in Texas and six other states this summer. “We must never blindly trust, especially the government,” he said.
“To those who merely think we should check our brains at the door of the White House and trust what the government does, I would reiterate to you the words of one of our government’s primary founders, Benjamin Franklin, who said, ‘Distrust and caution are the parents of security,’” the 75-year-old Lone Wolf McQuade star wrote in his column at the conservative website WorldNetDaily.
He added that Texans and Americans, some of whom have recently expressed fears that the upcoming maneuvers look like an “exercise” in the imposition of martial law, are not calling into question the military personnel. According to Norris, they are “merely following orders.”
“What’s under question are those who are pulling the strings at the top of Jade Helm 15 back in Washington,” the award-winning martial artist and the star of ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ pointed out.

EXCERPT CHUCK NORRIS POST ON WND:
If you haven’t heard about Jade Helm 15, you need to. It is multi-state training mission for special operations soldiers scheduled over an eight-week period in July and August, with most of the activity happening on private property but some public, too. The official website press release from March 24 admits: “While multi-state training exercises such as these are not unique to the military, the size and scope of Jade Helm sets this one apart.”
Gov. Abbot was right in writing Maj. Gen. Gerald Betty, “During the training operation, it is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed.” Abbott is demanding “regular updates on the progress and safety of the Operation.”
Concerned Texans and Americans are in no way calling into question our brave and courageous men and women in uniform. They are merely following orders. What’s under question are those who are pulling the strings at the top of Jade Helm 15 back in Washington. The U.S. government says, “It’s just a training exercise.” But I’m not sure the term “just” has any reference to reality when the government uses it.
