I can't believe Walmart actually had to issue an official denial about this nonsense, but they did. Thanks, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul for stirring up the crazy people.

Wal-Mart issued a statement Monday to TPM dismissing "rumors" that tunnels were being built by the U.S. military beneath closed stores in an attempt to launch a takeover of Texas.

"There’s no truth to the rumors," Wal-Mart spokesperson Lorenzo Lopez told TPM via email.

The tunnels are part of a series of conspiracy theories surrounding "Jade Helm 15," a military training operation set to take place later this year in seven Western states. The conspiracy theorists have said the operation may be part of a covert attempt to takeover Texas and other states.

Again, I have to ask. Why on earth would the government want to "take over" Texas?
