Trainwreck Alert

Catherine Thompson with two great pieces on the Jade Helm military exercise, which gets underway this week and has spawned more conspiracy theories than your tinfoil hat can count. She has the full rundown of the latest conspiracy mongering (come on, Russia helping Mexico reclaim Aztlan is the BEST!).

But there was also news over the weekend that a self-appointed group of volunteers have taken it upon themselves to monitor the military during the exercise, especially as the anticipated takeover of Texas unfolds.

“If a team member sees two Humvees full of soldiers driving through town, they’re going to follow them,” a leader of the volunteer effort said. “And they’re going to radio back their ultimate location.”

What could possibly go wrong?
