Pentagon Sending Additional 3,750 U.S. Troops to Secure Southern Border….

The Pentagon has announced today they are sending an additional 3,750 military troops to the U.S.-Mexico border to bolster the efforts of DHS and Border Patrol.

WASHINGTON – The Defense Department will deploy about 3,750 additional U.S. forces to the southwest border with Mexico, raising the number of active-duty troops at the border to about 4,350, the Pentagon said on Sunday.

The troops will provide support to U.S. Customs and Border Protection operations, including a mobile surveillance capability through the end of September, and they will lay about 150 miles (241 km) of concertina wire between ports of entry, the Defense Department said in a statement.

“Additional units are being deployed for 90 days, and we will continue to evaluate the force composition required to meet the mission to protect and secure the southern border,” the Pentagon said. Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan approved the additional border support on Jan. 11. (more)

        Napolitano Cancels Virtual Border Fence Project..1/14/2011

        Signaling a major shift from her predecessor, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Tuesday said she will spend $50 million of stimulus funds originally intended to build a “virtual fence” along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border on other more proven and cost-effective security technology.

        January 03, 2011 — “Three of the four border states are losing their National Guard troops”

        Special Guest: Arizona State Rep.-elect Jack Harper

        …. Jack, in 2007, you passed legislation to create a state-sanctioned militia here in Arizona. The then-governor, Napolitano, vetoed it….

        HARPER: Well, you might have heard that three of the four border states are losing their National Guard troops now. And Arizona is supposed to lose the federally funded National Guard troops in June or July. Well, we’re going to get crushed once the National Guard’s off the border because ….. these forces in Mexico that smuggle illegal aliens and drugs into our country, they’re more concerned with the National Guard than they are Border Patrol. Border Patrol’s … under Janet Napolitano, and that’s not really an intimidating factor.

        But a military uniformed person on the border makes a lot more sense. Now, using the Homeland Security Force volunteers to observe the border and the National Guard to react to incursions across our border is something that we’re going to explore,..

        The first bill, though, to establish the Homeland Security Force, I believe I’m going to have bipartisan support again. And I don’t know that …. Governor Brewer will be opposed to that, like Governor Napolitano was….

        PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. — Authorities in Pinal County dispute the Federal Government’s assertion that the Arizona border with Mexico is more secure than ever…. Tim Gaffney said that Director of Homeland Security Janet Napaolitano’s statements that crimes related to immigration and drug smuggling issues are down is just not true. The numbers county officials provided in the release seem to back up Gaffney’s stance. The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office said it has seen a “dramatic” increase in vehicle pursuits, drug seizures and calls to U.S. Border Patrol agents to help deal with illegal immigrants….

    • When my wife and I went to Cancun Mexico maybe a decade ago, we arrived at the customs inspection hall at the airport and no one was there except us. The hall was filled with rope barriers that forced you to walk back and forth, outside wall to outside wall, over and over again to make your way up to the inspection desk. No one was in the room but the two of us so we started “the walk”. After a few circuits of that I decided it was just easier and faster to step over the rope partitions and made my way to the front in a more direct route. The wife, well, she joined me at the front some good time later.

      When she got to the front two Mexican police came to the desk and it was VERY apparent they were not at all pleased with us. After a very pissed off policeman read me the riot act and threatened me with jail and after my profuse apologies, they let us go.

      The point is, if the American side was as firm and tough as the Mexican side we would not be having these problems.

      Frankly if we shot a couple of them trying to break into our house, the problem would be over.
      ps We will never go back to mexico.

      Deadly force eventually will be taken at the border, the same kind used when a criminal is breaking into someone’s house and refuses to abide by a law enforcement officer telling them to halt.

      Once the word is out to either stay home or turn back if you’ve already left because the US military is NOT letting you cross, this insanity at the border will end.

        Exactly, BKR. When drug felons are caught making a drug deal in our country (except sanctuary cities, of course) our law enforcement can and does use deadly force. When prisoners attempt to break out of lockup, deadly force is used to stop them. When bank robbers are cornered and won’t give up, deadly force is used. When a sex predator kidnaps a child and ends up in a stand off with police, he can expect to leave the premises in a body bag. When criminals assassinate a police officer, fellow officers return fire with intent to kill. And their aim is true.

        Our military is sent overseas to engage and kill criminals and terrorists. Our border should be an extension of the same rules of engagement. No reason in hell why our military and border agents shouldn’t be turned loose and do what they do best: PROTECT OUR NATION!

            For my whole life, 63 years, the Republican party has been a placeholder, occupying the space (and thereby preventing anyone ELSE (like Tea party, Perot party, or Barrys boys) from occupying the space of a party of conservative patriots, opposed to lib/dem policies.

            The Dem face of the Uniparty has dropped its Panda mask, thank God, and revealed its true nature for all to see, and can’t go back to its former ‘boil the frog slowly’ (“abortion should be available, safe and rare!” “We are only calling for ‘common sense’ gun control”
            “We are for Border Security!”).

            The Republican party is still showing its Panda mask, shrugging its shoulders and embracing the mantle of “the stupid party”, using behind closed door negotiations, the fillibuster rule and other parlamentary procedures to maintain the illusion we have a 2 party system.

            For the Republicans, to drop their Panda mask and show their true nature, is to destroy themselves, as once the illusion is exposed, they cease any usefulness; they can no longer serve their primary purpose.

            For those discerning, they are already exposed. They participated in undermining the Tea party, participated in countenencing the ‘soft coup’, in deliberately sabatouging the midterms,…voting NOT to go into recess, heck sabatouging Goldwaters election, and filling Reagans administration with Bushies who tried to undermine him at every turn.

            The exposure of the REPUBLICAN face of the Uniparty is key, and wresting control away from the current crop of miscreants is essential to success.

            I really get tired of hearing that blasted fairy tale.
            REAGAN SOLD US OUT!!! He sold out ALL AMERICAN no debt Corporations TO THE GLOBALISTS!!

            Here is the information showing he did so:

            Reagan fostered the Leveraged buyout feeding frenzy that gutted AMERICAN corporations and replaced them with the Transnational cartels we are now dealing with.

            “…A leveraged buyout (or LBO, or highly-leveraged transaction (HLT), or “bootstrap” transaction) occurs when an investor, typically financial sponsor, acquires a controlling interest in a company’s equity and where a significant percentage of the purchase price is financed through leverage (borrowing). The assets of the acquired company are used as collateral for the borrowed capital, sometimes with assets of the acquiring company. Typically, leveraged buyout uses a combination of various debt instruments from bank and debt capital markets…

            The leveraged buyout boom of the 1980s was conceived by a number of corporate financiers, most notably Jerome Kohlberg, Jr. and later his protégé Henry Kravis. Working for Bear Stearns at the time, Kohlberg and Kravis, along with Kravis’ cousin George Roberts, began a series of what they described as “bootstrap” investments…”

            Where the heck was CONGRESS. Where the heck were the COURTS when this was going on???
            “…Both economic and regulatory factors combined to spur the explosion in large takeovers and, in turn, large LBOs. The three regulatory factors were the Reagan administration’s relatively laissez-faire policies on antitrust and securities laws, which allowed mergers the government would have challenged in earlier years; the 1982 Supreme Court decision striking down state antitakeover laws (which were resurrected with great effectiveness in the late eighties); and deregulation of many industries, which prompted restructurings and mergers. The main economic factor was the development of the original-issue high-yield debt instrument. The so-called “junk bond” innovation, pioneered by Michael Milken of Drexel Burnham, provided many hostile bidders and LBO firms with the enormous amounts of capital needed to finance multi-billion-dollar deals….”

            So what did the US government do about this highly unethical practices???
            ..In January 1982, former US Secretary of the Treasury William Simon and a group of investors acquired Gibson Greetings, a producer of greeting cards, for $80 million, of which only $1 million was rumored to have been contributed by the investors. By mid-1983, just sixteen months after the original deal, Gibson completed a $290 million IPO and Simon made approximately $66 million.[9] The success of the Gibson Greetings investment attracted the attention of the wider media to the nascent boom in leveraged buyouts.[10] Between 1979 and 1989, it was estimated that there were over 2,000 leveraged buyouts valued in excess of $250 billion…..— WIKI
            h ttp://

            A US Secretary of the Treasury started the sellout of our economy. Reagan through his laissez faire attitude did nothing to stop it.
            “…Both economic and regulatory factors combined to spur the explosion in large takeovers and, in turn, large LBOs. The three regulatory factors were the Reagan administration’s relatively laissez-faire policies on antitrust and securities laws, which allowed mergers the government would have challenged in earlier years; the 1982 Supreme Court decision striking down state antitakeover laws (which were resurrected with great effectiveness in the late eighties); and deregulation of many industries, which prompted restructurings and mergers. The main economic factor was the development of the original-issue high-yield debt instrument. The so-called “junk bond” innovation, pioneered by Michael Milken of Drexel Burnham, provided many hostile bidders and LBO firms with the enormous amounts of capital needed to finance multi-billion-dollar deals….” (wwwDOT)

            Without intervention greed took over.
            “Corporate takeovers became a prominent feature of the American business landscape during the seventies and eighties. A hostile takeover usually involves a public tender offer—a public offer of a specific price, usually at a substantial premium over the prevailing market price, good for a limited period, for a substantial percentage of the target firm’s stock. Unlike a merger, which requires the approval of the target firm’s board of directors as well as voting approval of the stockholders, a tender offer can provide voting control to the bidding firm without the approval of the target’s management and directors…..

            Because it allows bidders to seek control directly from shareholders—by going “over the heads” of target management—the tender offer is the most powerful weapon available to the hostile bidder. … Although hostile bidders still need a formal merger to gain total control of the target’s assets, this is easily accomplished once the bidder has purchased a majority of voting stock.

            Hostile tender offers have been around for decades, but they were rare and generally involved small target firms until the midseventies. Then came the highly controversial multibillion-dollar hostile takeovers of very recognizable public companies. By the late eighties there were dozens of multi-billion-dollar takeovers and their cousins, leveraged buyouts (LBOs). The largest acquisition ever was the $25 billion buyout of RJR Nabisco by Kolberg Kravis and Roberts in 1989. [Editor’s note: this was written in 1992.] …. (wwwDOT)

            This is the result of the 1980’s leveraged buyout feeding frenzy.

            “Of mergers and acquisitions each costing $1 million or more, there were just 10 in 1970; in 1980, there were 94; in 1986, there were 346. A third of such deals in the 1980’s were hostile. The 1980’s also saw a wave of giant leveraged buyouts. Mergers, acquisitions and L.B.O.’s, which had accounted for less than 5 percent of the profits of Wall Street brokerage houses in 1978, ballooned into an estimated 50 percent of profits by 1988…

            THROUGH ALL THIS, THE HISTORIC RELATIONSHIP between product and paper has been turned upside down. Investment bankers no longer think of themselves as working for the corporations with which they do business. These days, corporations seem to exist for the investment bankers…. In fact, investment banks are replacing the publicly held industrial corporations as the largest and most powerful economic institutions in America….

            THERE ARE SIGNS THAT A VICIOUS spiral has begun, as each corporate player seeks to improve its standard of living at the expense of another’s.

            Corporate raiders transfer to themselves, and other shareholders, part of the income of employees by forcing the latter to agree to lower wages.”

      • this is not true. at all. and it’s not that simple. and it’s definitely not our fault any longer.

        i live in California. my home county is Orange County – a county that has been red since its inception. all the seats that were lost happened up to three weeks after the election through ballet harvesting, motor voter laws, and making mail-in ballots the preferred method of voting. the consequences of all those decisions that weren’t voted on is what turned the election for the Democrats.

        and that doesn’t include the… what’s the opposite of gentrification? that’s what’s happening in counties throughout the state so CA doesn’t lose any seats – and gains them, because of our out of control population boom. hint: it’s the 11-18m illegals and their spawn. it’s why you hear things like income disparity, lack of affordable housing, and that almost half the state is receiving one form or another of welfare entitlement.

        when you have 11-18m people that don’t speak English, don’t have an education of any kind, and are making below minimum wage, of course all those things are going to happen. if i hear one more person talk about our “housing crisis” i might punch them.

        so how can voters primary or vote out anyone in the super majority that is our progressive overlords? honest questions.

        it also doesn’t help that the GOP spent zero dollars in the state – you read that right. ZERO. don’t take my word look up Ron Bassilian, who is in a contentious fight about the outcome of his election in LA, where the local GOP ran out of money. and the national GOP hasn’t said word one about any of the shenanigans that have been going on in CA or anywhere else.

        This is where the feds would come in and straighten things out. that’s never going to happen. The fix is in on all levels. My state is closer to being Venezuela than the Golden State I grew up in. so sorry, if you think it’s the voters fault. at some point, it’s not in our hands and that is just what the powers that be are trying to do everywhere.

        hope it doesn’t happen to your state. if it does, i guess you can only blame yourself, right?

This is what is happening to states with big cities and large rural areas. The cities are, of course, run by Dimms. And the RNC was nowhere to be found in the 2016 or 2018 elections.

          I hoped that Homeland Security and FEC would have done more to protect the last CA election. I don’t understand how so many people voted for the Rep Gov candidate but voted for the Dem congressional candidate in some CA districts. Our elected CA officials including CA AG need to be held accountable. I see the heavy hand of election fraud with a white wash of activity to make criminal actions appear legal.

    The entire border should be militarized per the same “perimeter security” concept as Area 51 or any other secured location of private or public property where entry requires “legal” authorization.

    Electrified fences have an extra measure of “convincing” just like bug zappers.

    Unwelcome “aliens” or trespassers of whatever sort should receive a hot reception of the sort that is “convincing” in the same way as an alligator hunter “convinces” any stubborn alligator to get in the boat, after a polite request is ignored.

    America is like a bank where now the bank robbers are arriving as “caravans” of “clever” trespassers.

    It needs to be “explained” to those dumb ass border jumping “gangs” that Wells Fargo isn’t going to have any of that garbage……by being just as convincing about that “No Entry” as necessary.

          It never would have been “anti-German” racism for the 6 million exterminated Jews to *correctly identify” the nature of the GENOCIDE against the Jews was anti-semitic RACISM. And in the same way, it is not any “white racist bigotry” for caucasians to CORRECTLY identify the anti-white RACISM that every good evidence has provided in the MASS “immigration” by “other than whites” into what are demographically white nations … overwhelm and destroy the “white identity” that has traditionally existed there.

At one point she said something like, “There are a lot of countries that are better than the U.S.” Shapiro asked her to name some, and she said several Scandinavian countries, some European, etc. He said, “So the only countries you can name are those that have an even HIGHER percentage of whites than the U.S., right?

This couldn’t be more true. The fact that they are more concerned about how others think and act shows their true disconnect with reality. The loss of their ability to be concerned with how they act and act toward others shows that their soul lies in bed with the desire for power over others and not with any justice or betterment of society. I fear that they do not love themselves hence they are unable to truly love others. They have no introspection. “Social Enlightenment cannot be pushed upon people and made to happen. It IS NOT what the other person thinks but what the individual thinks and how they act. Just following the “Golden Rule” is a great start.

            “… the Roosevelt Easement allows the federal government access to 60 of the border with Mexico. This is from a GAO report: “The land where this fencing was built has been publicly owned since 1907 when President Theodore Roosevelt reserved a 60-foot strip along the international boundary with Mexico for the United States to maintain the area free from obstructions as a protection against the smuggling of goods between the United States and Mexico. In effect, the Roosevelt easement provided the federal government with a 60-foot border right-of-way on which it could build the fence.

            The federal government has the power to construct a fence along the border to protect the United States. In fact, in 2008 DHS Secretary Chertoff issued a waiver “to bypass environmental reviews to speed construction of fencing along the Mexican border.”…”

      “Instead, he said, the problem lies in how the Immigration Control and Reform Act of 1986 was implemented. He described the passage of the bill as something of a ~~>“con-job” that allowed millions of immigrants in the country illegally to have legal status with a promise of workplace enforcement and other measures to curb future illegal immigration.”

      “But that didn’t happen, he said. And there was little incentive to follow through on promises of strict workplace enforcement, he said, once millions of people were legalized.”
      [We see the power of the entrenched bureaucracy with Trump as President. Reagan relied on promises made by Tip O’Neill; Democrat speaker of the house. Plus, Reagan too was saddled [Reagan the cowboy movie star] with an entrenched bureaucracy.

      Reagan is long gone, the problem today, is the Democratic party needs the ‘immigrant vote’ to retain its political power.
      Unfortunately, sometimes political arguments resemble arguments by married couples. Instead of solving the problems occurring today, the arguments often descend into blaming each other, for things that happened 30+ years ago, when they were first married.

    Does it seem odd to anyone else that this wasn’t much of an issue over the past 2 years? You know, while we had control over both the House & Senate. Why were they only called out for their failures/lies/backstabbing in addressing after-the-fact? When there’s nothing that could be done by to resolve it.

    Instead we were strung along, consoled with a bunch of hypothetical scenarios of alternate ways in funding- ones that just never quite came to fruition.

    And it’s not like there wasn’t a steady stream of undesirables flowing across our borders– while no one was really paying much attention.

    Granted, incoming invasions of giant hordes makes for a greater sense of urgency. Yet many of the past ones, with their fraudulent claims of “asylum” (all falling outside the guidelines, a/o having bypassed procedures for), still got thru. It was just done so in a more orderly fashion, & after their misguided entitlement had to suffer with some delay. Did anyone actually see any swarms returning in the direction from which it came? I for one, did not. Maybe I’m wrong.

    But it does seem kind of obvious why the Left pushed for a 3-wk delay. They needed to allow enough time for the traveling reinforcements to be able to tag base… & just in case there’s a coming resolution on the wall. They want to ensure maximum damage in numbers, getting trapped” over on this side of the wall.

    Of course that could be easily resolved with subsequent mass-deportations. But only if we had a real justice system, & our existing laws weren’t ignored. Or instead overridden by lesser policies, ones that prove Unconstitutional at best.

    I’m just not feeling much trust in DHS… they seem to serve an agenda that doesn’t align with our best interests.
    The recent midterms was their chance to redeem some credibility– after the antics pulled by them in 2016 General Election. They clearly failed to do so.

    But everybody is addicted to argument, no matter how good any idea is. Just know, I won’t be answering any such arguments. The arguers never think things through, nor get the situation right to begin with — that’s how general war quickly becomes the only way forward, through endless, feckless argument.
