    Tunnel found next to Border Wall in Hidalgo | Rio Grande Guardian
    https://riograndeguardian.com/tunnel-found-next-to-border-wall-in-hidalgo/

    “HIDALGO, RGV – Border Patrol’s Marine division has found another tunnel built to go under the Border Wall, this time in Hidalgo, Texas.
    The tunnel, measuring 60 feet in length, had been dug on the embankment of the Rio Grande close to a border wall constructed ten years ago.

    Had it not been discovered it would have gone under the Border Wall on land owned by Texas Fish & Wildlife, just 2,000 feet downriver from Hidalgo Water Improvement District No. 3’s pump station.”

            Wow. I personally know a family, a neighbor of 20+ years, whose beautiful son was perfectly healthy, just like yours–until shortly after he was vaccinated. He will live out his life as severely autistic. It was and is heart-breaking to know what could have been. Our friends didn’t know, of course, and would give anything to get a re-do, knowing what they know now.

            Calling other people ‘idiots’ is such an ignorant thing to do.

            Lastly, my youngest is the only one who had the job vaccine. He is the only one with seizures. They started right after. I’m not sure who to believe but I wish he hadn’t had that shot.

          Do you think the make-up of vaccines has changed radically since parents had to bring proof to register their kids for school? (It was taken-for-granted when I was a kid). I have read that, but I have also heard Dr. Carson, whom I respect, say that there is no evidence to support stories of dangerous results. I know with autism, having taught sped for so long, that it became a “trendy” diagnosis very quickly and that a lot of the assumed cases are misdiagnosed.

          The one vaccination I have no use for whatsoever is the flu. It’s been around all my life; it’s never hit close-to-home as anything more than an annoyance, and when people assume others get a flu shot every year, I’m astonished. I’ll be saying “What? No, of course I don’t get flu shots.” The idea of those, as opposed to childhood vaccinations, DOES seem suspicious.

          People seem to get very angry/emotional/upset at those who disagree on the subject, though –what are the other health and environmental problems claimed by those who are anti-vaccination?

    US Atty Genl nominee William Barr doubles down on gun confiscation via ’emergency order’ laws, magazine bans, more.
    https://gunowners.org/barr-doubles-down/

    FTA. Please note that the questions submitted to Barr in writing were submitted by notorious gun hating Senators Feinstein, Cornyn, and Kennedy. The questions telegraph those scumbag senator’s plans to further erode, infringe, and eradicate by degrees the 2nd Amd. If confirmed, Barr would be an essential element to the left’s plan to destroy America inasmuch as he’d be the DOJ vehicle necessary to subjugate the 2nd Amd to the left’s plans. To mitigate and neutralize Barr, Trump should nominate Tom Hardiman to SCOTUS. Hardiman has said the only gun law needed is the 2nd Amd.)
    —–
    The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote next week on the Attorney General nominee William Barr. Unfortunately, Barr’s answers to Senators’ questions during a hearing earlier this month showed that he holds a very anti-gun bias. And after the hearing, several Senators submitted written questions to him — looking for clarification on many issues (including guns).

    Barr supports Gun Confiscation Orders: “… it is critical that we get an effective system in place that keeps firearms out of the hands of mentally ill people… A key part of any such system are laws that allow ‘Extreme Risk Protection Orders’ [aka Gun Confiscation Orders].” (Barr answer to Sen. Cornyn Question #1.)

    Barr explains why he could still support the semi-auto and magazine bans that he supported in 1991: ”I would look for … whether [the] burden [of a gun-control measure] has a sufficiently meaningful impact on crime to justify burdening a fundamental right…” (Barr answer to Sen. Kennedy Question #3.)

    Barr could possibly support the elimination of the 3-day period for completing a NICS check — thereby allowing the FBI to block a purchase forever, without knowing if the individual was a prohibited person: ”I also have not studied whether changes to the three-day waiting period are advisable. If confirmed, I will review this issue along with other issues affecting public safety.” (Barr answer to Sen. Feinstein Question #43.)

      “A key part of any such system are laws that allow ‘Extreme Risk Protection Orders’ ”
      —–
      What Barr isn’t telling you is that many of the persons so targeted by these thinly disguised gun confiscation orders had their gun purchases approved by the FBI’s NICS background check. Thus, those persons are not mentally ill or otherwise incompetent.

      “Extreme Risk Protection Orders” means your girlfriend can say you threatened her and the cops will SWAT your house to take your guns. And kill you if they feel like it. And get away with it using the get out of jail free card “I was in fear for my life” BS.

      Barr will be an epic disaster for the 2nd Amd. And it’s not out of the question that he’d be an activist anti gun USAG. I honestly wonder about where the hell Trump gets his nominees from. Sessions. Barr. Etc.

        Or maybe the president has been informed by McConnell that they will not confirm anyone except Barr (or anyone except someone the GOPe endorses). It’s quite possible that Barr is the only person the president can get confirmed and so he accepts what he can and realizes he is not head of the Legislative Branch, only the Executive Branch. I have no idea if this is what’s happening, but it certainly wouldn’t surprise me. Remember, when he was talking of Sessions needing to be replaced McConnell told him that the Senate would not confirm any new AG until after the midterm elections. If McConnell did that it’s quite possible he also has told him who is acceptable and who is not.

If you followed the scandal about the Pakistani IT “expert” (and financial crook) who allowed hacks into Democratic congressional computers (about 24 Reps used him for their IT; he collected $7MM in known fees) you will want to listen to Derek Hunter’s Daily Caller podcast today. He has the DC reporter that was most active in writing about this on the second half of his show to discuss the reporter ‘s (Luke Roziak) new book on the subject.

    I use stitcher for these podcasts, link below:

    One of the most disturbing points in the interview is about Paul Ryan, who apparently sat on the information and did not inform his fellow Republicans. There is expected horrible info about Pelosi, Wasserman Shultz and the like; who apparently intimidated the House IG that found the leaks originally (and framed her, so now she is retired). The perpetrator

    A true Deep State story. I suspect that there is a connection between the terrible DOJ work on this case and the timing of POTUS’s severely curtailing our relationship with the Pakistanis. Awan seem to have high level protection in Pakistan and there are many stories of him defrauding his fellow Pakistanis to the tune of millions–including apparently “buying an entire town”.

    The only public record on the topic was Acting FBI Director McCabe’s public testimony to Congress stating that “WE will handle that” – that is, securing and taking possession of Comey’s records and files. Meaning FBI will handle it since FBI is the agency Comey worked for.

    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/02/breaking-ralph-northam-apologizes-for-kkk-blackface-yearbook-photo-refuses-to-resign/ Republicans, however, are calling on Governor Northam to step down.

    Friday afternoon, Governor Northam released a statement apologizing for the yearbook photo — but he refuses to resign.

    “Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook in a costume that is clearly racist and offensive,” Northam said.

    “I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now.”

    “This behavior is not in keeping with who I am today and the values I have fought for throughout my career in the military, in medicine, and in public service. But, I want to be clear, I understand how this decision shakes Virginians’ faith in that commitment,” Northam continued.

    “I recognize that it will take time and serious effort to heal the damage this conduct has caused. I am ready to do that important work. The first step is to offer my sincerest apology and to state my absolute commitment to living up to the expectations Virginians set for me when they elected me to be their Governor.”

      Democrats ALWAYS defend their own no matter what.

      A Ralph Northam ally, Senate Minority Leader Richard L. Saslaw (D-Fairfax) defended the governor saying we don’t need to examine something that occurred 30 years ago — unless your name is Brett Kavanaugh of course!

        …and if your only “proof” is a witness saying “maybe something happened” and “maybe it was Kavanaugh” — then go with it. But photographic evidence? Naw! No reason to follow up with that.

      The Pro-abortion stance is often rooted in racism. Margaret Sanger wanted to abort as many black babies as possible. The Dems are the real white supremecists, and they use African Americans to gain power while they keep them poor and helpless.

      A few days ago this was discussion here at CTH and the chances of this working are about 1 in a million. The reason is that Article I of the Constitution forbids states from entering into compacts with other states (which is what this is) without Congressional approval. So, even though Colorado and other states (if I remember correctly, there are 12 so far that are trying to do this) may try to do this, they need Congress to approve it first. And, if Congress does, then it would go to court and SCOTUS would have to rule on it and it’d be hard to get around Article I even with today’s SCOTUS. So, it’s not really much of an issue other than proof (along with numerous other things happening in Colorado since Jared Polis became governor recently) that Colorado is out to become California East. I won’t be surprised to see Colorado pass a law similar to the abortion law New York just passed. These kinds of things should be expected from Democrats when they have control.

      As I posted on the previous page when this was mentioned – it is not just the Blue states. Here in TN, leading GOP pushed this in our legislature. Glen Casada was supportive of it in 2016 and is now the Speaker of the TN House! Our leading TN GOP who are currently in power support and have pushed this in the very conservative TN.

      Why?!

    By tossing the Obamacare lawsuit, Hollander avoided having to decide on the lawfulness of Whitaker’s appointment, although the judge did say Maryland had presented “sound arguments” in support of its contention that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should have become acting attorney general when Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions in November.

        Why do you say it is quackery. We are dealing with people who traffic in women and children. These people sell women into sexual slavery and harvest organs of children. Making finger and hand prints using aborted babies would be right up their alley.

      The owner says, “Wursthall will continue, as it always has, to serve all customer regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual preference, gender orientation, disability, or political opinion — so long as they leave hate, anger, and violence outside of the doors of our restaurant.

      What a cluster-f.

      Sounds like the hate and anger is inside those doors.

      The place is called Wursthall! LOL

      Brings to mind a few things:

      It’s the “worst” hall.

      Wurst brings to mind the Germans – the Nazi’s, the gestapo, the SS.

      The very name of that place, and its owner’s statements and beliefs, are symbolic of the projection of the actual hate, anger, intolerance and totalitarianism from today’s Left.

    Today it looks like there were not any more DC leaks. Slow news day I guess or maybe the next leaker didn’t feel they could complete with Northam!

    This little bit of news seems to have slipped by without much notice. Mueller is trying to prevent the Concord Russians from seeing the evidence against them! He reported to the court that some so called earlier evidence from October 2018 was leaked via a tweet and posted on a web page.

    However no one else can find the tweet or web page except Mueller! More dirty tricks!

    God is working his mysterious ways, people.

    Look @ this tweet from Kamala, and the woman who’s refuting the State of the Union address coming up. James Woods noticed there’s a crackhead passed out on the bench behind them and they don’t even see it.

    This is the type of stuff that only God can be behind. It’s way, way, WAY too perfectly ironic.

    He is parting the waters, so President Trump can walk through, and then he’s crashing them back down on the Army after him. For whatever reason, he has chosen to protect President Trump and use him to save the planet (not just the USA)

      I personally don’t think he needs a declaration, all he has to do is just have it built, just like he would have a warehouse or an office building or whatever homeland security needs built. If DHS needs to build a new facility they just build it, congress doesn’t have anything to do with it. If they need a new fence at a port of entry they just build it, they don’t need a presidential declaration to make it happen. DHS says they need a wall, they’ve already got a bunch of walls and different types of walls, nothing controversial about it, they’ve been building walls for hundreds of years.
