Multiple U.S. Active Duty Soldiers Arrested In Illegal Alien Smuggling Ring…

Sharyl Attkisson writes a gobsmacking investigative article outlining how soldiers in Fort Bliss were running an active human smuggling ring bringing Mexican nationals across the border.  It looks like there’s a large number of active duty military engaged in this.  (make sure to read the entire article)…

pena gate(Via Sharyl Attkisson) U.S. authorities are investigating an illegal immigrant smuggling operation allegedly run by active duty military soldiers out of the Ft. Bliss U.S. Army post in El Paso, Texas. Ft. Bliss is headquarters for El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC), a federal tactical operational intelligence center.

According to sources and documents, two U.S. soldiers, Marco Antonio Nava, Jr. and Joseph Cleveland, were arrested last Saturday by border patrol officers at Falfurias, Texas Border Patrol Station Checkpoint attempting to smuggle two Mexican citizens into the U.S. The Mexicans were riding in the back seat of the car.

Upon their arrest, the soldiers, who were not in uniform at the time, informed Border Patrol agents they are part of the 377 TC Company at Ft. Bliss.

Nava told investigators it was the second time that he and Cleveland had smuggled in illegal immigrants for pay and, during a debriefing, described a smuggling ring allegedly involving other Ft. Bliss soldiers. Nava identified a leader of the group as a Private First Class, as well as other participants. He said he wasn’t sure how long the ring had been operating.  (read more)

      In other news, hot off the press from my SF brethren in Fort Bragg:

      “So, the first female candidate for the Special Forces Assessment & Selection course (SFAS) is scheduled to start the course in September. SWTG leadership has assured everyone that the standards will not be changed or lowered when the first female arrives. BUT!, they have decided to change the male standards now. What a coincidence! Initial changes are:
      -Ruck Weight for SFAS changed from 55 lbs to 45 lbs
      -Swim test eliminated
      -Log PT eliminated
      -Rifle PT eliminated
      -No rifles carried during Team Week
      -Minimum score for Land Nav changed from 8/8 points to 4/8 points
      -Candidates will not be required to stand in formations for long periods for any reason
      This is not hearsay or rumor. This is direct from cadre assigned to 1/1 SWTG.
      Stand by; 75th Ranger Regiment. You are next.”

      So basically, the standards that one is required to meet in SFAS, a 21 day tryout with a 70% attrition rate, have been cut in half. SFAS is not a test to become a Green Beret. It is merely a test to gain the privilege of attending the year long Special Forces Qualification Course (SFQC) which traditionally has a 66% attrition rate. SFQC standards will undoubtedly be slashed as well.

      The female is the least of my worries. She will fail even with the standards cut in half. What worries me is the caliber of men who are going to graduate SFQC and pollute the SF Teams. The Special Forces A-Team mission capability is going to drop to the level of a conventional infantry squad. Why even have Special Forces?

      Same thing with Ranger School. After two failed attempts, the Obama females were put through a third Ranger School with their own Field-Grade Officer cadre (RTB cadre are all E-5/6/7s. There is no such thing as LTCs and COLs walking/grading patrols). They were given a modified rucksack packing list that was significantly less weight than normal. They were give extra food and sleep (Ranger School rations are one MRE per day and you are lucky to get one hour of sleep. I lost 60lbs in Ranger School and I had 6% bodyfat when I started. Ranger School graduation pics look like concentration camp victims). And the US Army had a tent built in the middle of the patrol base every day so that the females could conduct personal hygiene and pee/poop.

      All of you infantrymen out there know what its like to take a shi* in the slit trench in the middle of the patrol base in front of all of your brethren who are lying in the perimeter and pulling security. A patrol base is a clandestine staging area in enemy territory where a small unit can rest, refit and plan future combat operations. It is located off of natural lines of drift, covered and concealed, easily defended for a short amount of time and is located away from built-up areas, etc. In other words, it is located in the nastiest thicket imaginable. AND NOW WE HAVE TO PITCH A TENT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PATROL-BASE SO THAT WOMEN CAN CONDUCT PERSONAL HYGIENE!!? Will the enemy turn a blind-eye to our EEOC tents? And who carried the special f****** tent for these girls? Obviously not the girls.

      US military Special Operations is the only meritocracy left on earth. Obama is doing all he can to dismantle this last institution of American exceptionalism. YOU and YOUR CHILDREN are no longer being protected by “rough men.” Now you have EEOC snowflakes wearing Ranger Tabs and Special Forces Tabs.

      All of the field-grade officers, Generals and girls who were involved in this fraud need to be court-martialed for falsifying official government documents and engaging in felony waste fraud and abuse. Trump should send all of these people to Leavenworth. Especially these women… WHO KNOW DAMN WELL THAT THEY NEVER CAME CLOSE TO MEETING THE STANDARDS!!!

        I think there is a role for women in the military and will even go so far as to say that there are women involved in operations that never see the light of day NOR should they be or else we lose the element of surprise, HOWEVER, standards for certain rates/MOS’ should never be lowered for a PC cause!!

          I can still remember the fiasco in early ’80s with katie “I’ll sue you too” wilder. A worthless “crack” troop who attended the SF OFFICER course (which was a pu55y course) and failed miserably, yet she sued the military and was “awarded” a certificate and beret, although she never got a chance to wear it. This is a long time coming, we thought that clinton would have done it. SF will soon stand for “Sissified Fu-ks” and they will be issuing pink berets; Rangers already have been.

          Roger that squid. Inter-Service rivalries aside, I’ve served alongside SEALS in AF and IQ. Goddamn superheroes. We were on a joint k/c mission to grab an HVT in AF that precluded wearing bodyarmor due to nature of the mission. We made entry and cleared the structure. I saw the Master Chief take a round through his torso but he continued fighting like nothing had happened until actions on the objective were complete.

          I thought I saw him take a round but I wasn’t sure until I saw the blood. It didn’t have any effect whatsoever on his demeanor.

          He stoically walked to the exfil Blackhawk like nothing had happened. He fastened his lanyard, sat back and went to sleep. He knew he was dead. Died on the way back to the FOB. You guys are F****** Warriors. My utmost respect.

        I agree with that! A PFC (Private First Class) as stated in the article is a very low/entry level rank in the Army and has no influence in anything. The are ‘followers’ because they still learning the ropes and are also very young. – I am familiar with the US Army having spent 20 years with and around them. The leader of this smuggling ring – if true – has either dual loyalty and entered military service in lieu of citizenship but additionally a personal/secret agenda the Chain of Command had no clue. There is more to this!

      A lot of the border patrol stations aren’t actually on the border. This particular station is halfway between Corpus and McAllen. They might have picked them up at a location on the TX side (the article said “a trailer”). Service members from Fort Bliss have orders to NOT cross the border without a travel briefing and written permission so they should be able to track how many times all six of these guys crossed the border.

      I’m betting the Army classifies this as “Human Trafficking.” In today’s Army, it’s a bigger offense than treason…

      “The report, Gang Activity in the U.S. Armed Forces Increasing, dated January 12, states that members of nearly every major street gang have been identified on both domestic and international military installations. Members of nearly every major street gang, including the Bloods, Crips, Black Disciples, Gangster Disciples, Hells Angels, Latin Kings, The 18th Street Gang, Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), Mexican Mafia, Nortenos, Surenos, Vice Lords, and various white supremacist groups, have been documented on military installations.

      Although most prevalent in the Army, the Army Reserves, and the National Guard, gang activity is pervasive throughout all branches of the military and across most ranks, but is most common among the junior enlisted ranks, according to the report. The extent of gang presence in the armed services is often difficult to determine since many enlisted gang members conceal their gang affiliation and military authorities may not recognize gang affiliation or may be inclined not to report such incidences.”

    The Rex 84 Program was originally established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA.

I don’t like Putin. Yeah, he’s an alpha, big deal, so am I. I don’t trust his ulterior motives in all he does. Our refusal to engage in any sort of stern, but reasonable dialogue with the man shows us to be small, petty, rigid-thinking, and unwilling (or unable) to react with flexibility to rapidly changing international aliances. Who in 1980 would ever have foreseen Sino-Russian unity? They were historical bitter enemies.

Obama and his minions will want to show that he is “tough” on the border and what better way than to make an example of the people he detests: The U.S. Military

    Obama has caused so many GREAT soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines to leave the service because he has turned our nation’s military into a large social experiment.
