Rep. Louie Gohmert Fears U.S. Planning Annexation of Texas

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Nil Admirari) - Today, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) wrote a press release from his Washington, D.C. office expressing concern about a possible United States invasion and annexation of Texas. Gohmert's fears are a response to a U.S. Special Operations exercise named Jade Helm 15, which is to take place in various states between July 15 and September 15, 2015.

"I sit in my office at the U.S. Capitol Building as a duly elected representative of Texas and I fear the United States government is plotting to seize Texas," said Gohmert in the press release.

The press release went on to state, "We Texans already have to worry about Mexicans, jihadists, gays, and liberals in our midst. Now we have to be afraid of the United States because it wants to take over Texas? Well, we won't go down without a fight, America."

Gohmert claimed he sent a letter of protest to the White House, but President Obama said the envelope from Gohmert's office only contained $600 in cash for someone called "Princess Peach."

The Pentagon has reached out to Gohmert and promised it is not planning to invade Texas. It stopped short of informing him Texas is already part of the United States.
