      TX Gov just sent 1000 National Guard; hope they are fully prepared with tear gas or whatever is needed to repel invaders. What is the point of deporting 10 if we have 50 times that many arrive the next day? Surely everyone, even the leftists, can see this is unsustainable.

      I don’t know why they don’t just take the bus!!!…

      I spent the night in El Paso a few nights ago.
      Spent much time “Looking right across the border” at the twinklin lights of Ciudad Juárez, and thinking. It’s a favorite perch!! One of many. 😉
      I watched as a “Tour Bus” rolled into the parking lot and stopped in the fuel island.
      Out came 30+- individuals.
      Not a “Gringo” amongst them.

      They sauntered across the parking lot without a care in the world.
      I decided to go into the “Store😉”…
      To have a look around.
      While in the rest room… I noticed…
      They didn’t seem to know how to use the “Soap Dispenser” or the Automatic Paper Towel machine. Curious!
      Not a single conversation I “Overheard” was in English. The “Cashier” spoke to them in Spanish. ALL OF THEM!!
      EVERY SINGLE ONE!!
      They averted their eyes when the noticed my gaze. Parted like the Red Sea as I came down an aisle.

      They Looked “Lost, Amazed & Sheepish” at the same time.
      Most purchased chips, soda’s, candy bars, etc.
      Paid with a “Credit Card” of some kind.

      🤔 They have a credit card, but don’t understand a “Soap Dispenser”?
      Did NOT notice Anyone older.. than say 30.
      The name of the “Tour Bus” was in Spanish.
      It listed many exciting destinations for their customers…
      Juarez – Nogales – Dallas – Chicago – Phoenix – Los Angeles – …
      The “Tour Bus Operator” was ummm…
      Similarly feathered.

      Of All the places to stop as a “Tourist”… from mehico…
      El Paso seemed an odd choice.

      30 minutes after the “Tour Bus” departed…
      Another rolled into the parking lot…

      I am passed by “several” of these “Tour Busses” EVERY DAY!!

      Each time I have an opportunity to find them “Stopped”… a similar scenario unfolds.

      I spent the night in Houston, a few nights ago…

          It would help if the border States kept any and ALL Checkpoints OPEN!!
          They have signs in the window… “Go”.
          They have ” Port Closed”. (Port of ENTRY)
          They have “Vacant buildings”.
          They have simply “Razed” some sights.
          They have “Electronic Enhancements” to help prevent waiting trucks backing up onto the road… (No need to stop?)
          They are more interested in fining you for a mudflap that is 1/2 inch too short… than getting off their lazy butts to ask questions.
          They use the Ports of Entry and weight stations to park their private boats and RV’s.
          As long as you have a valid registration; have paid the “Other Fees” and crap isn’t falling off the trailer…
          You are good to go.
          Simply stated, with over 2 million miles experience driving Over the Road…
          Imho… Our efforts to protect our borders (State/National) is a JOKE!!!

          Paid the “Fees”, but have a thingy danglin… Lets have a look see.
          Paid the “Fees” and no dangling thingy… yawn.

      And there it is… Pelosi’s motive. They might want to check on how many are coming in behind this group too.🤨

      Also, if the same POLICY that was in place when Nat’l Guard assistance started- it’s not as positive as it would seem. This comes directly from a BP Agent (I was curious… so had hub personally ask for me– while visiting various Border Stations for work.)

      On being asked, “Was having the NG assistance making a noticeable difference?”

      BP Agent (paraphrasing): “The current POLICY REQUIRES that a Guardsman going out into the field, MUST have a BP Agent as an ESCORT– at ALL times.
      Whereas, back during 0bama’s term, when the Guard were sent down to help at one point… they were able to go out WITHOUT escorts, & also APPREHEND– thus covering more ground. So THEN– it worked great, & made a BIG difference.
      NOW– not so much… in providing the RELIEF you’d expect. That’s BECAUSE of the CHANGE in POLICY.”
      (I’m assuming with exception to having the physical backup– during regular apprehensions, if needed).

      So, if that policy is still in-effect…

    Back in January, , Sundance was at least the most vocal, & to my recollection the only, pundit or commentator or analyst calling attention to the new House Rules package Spkr Pelosi was preparing to advance & eventually passed. I read what Sundance & maybe others on the new Rules, what they underlined; then read it myself & said to myself “Holy shit, she made it impossible to remove her. They can’t Boehner her from the left…. are the new House Democrats really gonna sign that much power away?”

    = = = = = =
    Former HseOversightChair Jason Chaffetz’s Op-Ed for Fox News, “Why Nancy Pelosi will not be fired until at least 2021”

    “The naive liberals in her caucus may have visions of pushing Pelosi even further to the left, especially on impeachment, but the speaker knows they can’t get rid of her. […] Unlike former Republican House Speaker John Boehner, who resigned the speakership under pressure from his right flank, Pelosi has no such worries. […]

    “Early this year, House Democrats passed a standard rules package that would govern the House during the 116th Congress. On a party-line vote, 234 Democrats supported the rules package. But that package was anything but standard. […] Among the surprising changes in the small print was a little-noticed provision changing the threshold for the Motion to Vacate the chair. […]

    “The Motion to Vacate is the process used to replace a speaker of the house in mid-session. It works like this: the majority party introduces the motion to vacate, which declares the office of speaker vacant and forces a new vote. This is a privileged motion, meaning anyone can offer it. If a majority of the whole body supports the motion, it passes. That means a minority of the majority plus the minority party can combine to oust a speaker. […]

    “Under her rules package, the Motion to Vacate now requires a majority of the majority before it can be voted on by the full House. […] As a result, Pelosi can keep ignoring calls for impeachment as long as she likes. She is solidly in place as speaker until the 117th Congress convenes in January 2021.

    ” While the elimination of check on power is not good for the country, it may ironically turn out to be good for Republicans, who rode anti-Pelosi sentiment to a crushing victory in 2010. It may also be good for the president’s 2020 prospects as it leaves little flexibility for Democrats if they once again see Pelosi driving their party over an electoral cliff.”

All the advanced notice is very un-Trumpian; on the campaign he would always say he would keep these things to himself so no one else could spill the beans.

              “Reach out” is colloquial & fits the context just fine, but OK. She put herself in the position of negotiating rather than obstructing or opposing. Such fine distinctions may not make a difference to aan expert such as yourself, but to imbeciles like myself there is a subtle difference

              It means she sees something in it for herself & her party if she negotiates. There’s something she’s wwilling to take a risk on. The rules are different. Nothing is expected of you if all you plan to do is obstruct or oppose another party’s agenda or intentions. It’s basically symbolic & aims to be destructive or abstractly negative. The basic attitude is “there’s nothing in it for me, I refuse to play the game at all.”

              By opening a negotiation Spkr Pelosi brings her entire caucus to the table & says to them “ok, guys, you gotta do something, we gotta look like we earned these seats.” This can go several ways for all involved. The most cynical calculation wowuld be that Spkr Pelosi wants to clean up her House Dems image & make them look more reasonable, & will allow them to mail in a piss-poor deal which will then be rejected by POTUS & blasted by the GOP

              IF her side mails it in or (even better?) totally drops the ball & looks incoherent & divided, then they’ve just given BOTH POTUS & House GOP a political in & something to run on & run with

              Watch Bill Clinton in 1996 take the political “failures” Speaker Newt Gingrich’s House & Maj Leader Dole’s Senate Republicans dealt him in his 1st term, & turn them into a reason to reelect him to a 2nd term

      Found this…

      https://www.readingeagle.com/news/article/ice-raid-leaves-mushrooms-rotting-on-chester-county-farm

      FTA..

      In one farm office, the manager showed me a new letter from the Department of Homeland Security, which runs ICE. The assistant special agent in charge wrote that ICE agents had stopped by recently to copy employment records. Over the next four weeks, they had checked those documents, and found that some of the workers “appear, at the present time, not to be authorized to work in the United States.”

      Why? Some work documents appeared to “pertain to other individuals.” Others didn’t match official records, provide employment authorization, or had expired. For all those reasons and more, they failed to “satisfy the Form I-9 employment eligibility verification requirements of the INA,” the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952. As amended.

      The letter listed the familiar Spanish names: Carlos, Jesus, Maria, Miguel. Gonzalez, Martinez, Zavala. In combinations and hyphenations. With hire dates, Social Security numbers, and the status of those numbers, marked “Invalid.” More than two dozen.

      Unless they can come up with new, valid documents, “they are considered by (Homeland investigators) to be unauthorized to work in the United States.” If he keeps them on, the farmer may be subject to “civil penalties ranging from $548 to $4,384 per unauthorized alien for a first violation.” And more if ICE finds this has happened here before.

      “This is a very serious matter that requires your immediate attention.”

      Within 10 business days, the assistant special agent in charge concluded, the employer must either verify the workers’ status “or take other appropriate actions.” The penalties could include “civil” fines. Or worse: “Criminal charges may be brought against any person or entity that engages in a pattern or practice of knowingly hiring or continuing to employ unauthorized aliens.”

        Sharon, you’re a long-timer and I don’t intend to offend, but I’ve got to point out that you’re doing what Leftists do when I attempt to have a discussion with them.

        That is they “kill the messenger” or more accurately they “bitch and moan and whine” about the messenger …

        … rather than dealing with the substantive content of the message or issue.

        I’m not claiming that you’re a Leftist, I’m simply pointing out that you’re resorting to the same tactic they use.

        It’s not the “appeal to authority” logical fallacy, it’s the opposite: “discredit the authority”. But it’s equally a logical fallacy and a failure to debate in good faith on the merits or substance.

        I can’t have a conversation with them because they divert discussion and introduce red herrings and straw men or change the subject; they do this unfailingly.

        “That’s not reliable, it’s from (Breitbart) (Fox) (yada yada)”, they whine.

        As to the substance, I’ll agree with Lulu below that Coulter’s got it exactly right on this one statement of hers. It hurts to hear it, but it’s true. And I’ll agree with Lulu about all the knock-on effects she cites.

      I also like using the term “FUD” since it’s SIMILAR to intelligence inflluence operations, but comes from business, sales, & marketing. In my mind, when I see it, it’s like assigning the source a lower status than a political or intel operative.

    A cyber attack on an oil refinery in Saudi Arabia in August was intended to cause sabotage, possibly even an explosion, according to investigators.

    And the only thing that prevented it was an error in the attack code.

    That’s according to a report in the New York Times newspaper, which claims that it was the culmination of a string of attacks on economic targets in the country that occurred throughout 2017.

    But it is the cyber attack on a petrochemical plant in August, which targetted the Triconex safety controllers operating at the plant, made by Schneider Electric, that has raised alarm. These devices are used in around 18,000 different plants around the world, including nuclear power stations, water treatment works, refineries and chemical plants.

    “The only thing that prevented significant damage was a bug in the attackers’ computer code that inadvertently shut down the plant’s production systems,” reported the New York Times. It is being investigated by Mandiant.

    The report added: “Investigators believe that the hackers have probably fixed their mistake by now, and that it is only a matter of time before they deploy the same technique against another industrial control system.”

    The inside story of the world’s most dangerous malware
    March 7, 2019

    On Aug. 4, 2017, at 7:43 p.m., two emergency shutdown systems sprang into action as darkness settled over the sprawling refinery along Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea coast.

    The systems brought part of the Petro Rabigh complex offline in a last-gasp effort to prevent a gas release and deadly explosion. But as safety devices took extraordinary steps, control room engineers working the weekend shift spotted nothing out of the ordinary, either on their computer screens or out on the plant floor.

    The reasons for the sudden shutdown were still buried under zeros and ones, nestled deep within the code of the compromised Schneider Electric safety equipment.

    Investigators soon discovered a dangerous hacking tool that would usher in a new chapter in the global cyber arms race, much like the Stuxnet worm that damaged Iranian nuclear centrifuges at the start of the decade. The discovery of the Triton malware, named for the Triconex line of safety systems it triggered, echoed from the ancient Saudi city of Rabigh to a research institute in Moscow, and from California to Tokyo.

    Experts say the same hackers behind the Saudi intrusion are probing U.S. petrochemical plants and refineries, positioning themselves for dangerous, even deadly, future strikes. Earlier this year, top U.S. intelligence officials warned that multiple hacking groups, backed by foreign spy agencies, are poised to disrupt American electricity and pipeline networks in the event of war with the United States.

      The Dems need not make any border security concessions since they have successfully derailed everything associated with MAGA-related immigration reform legislation. To think otherwise is naive, IMO.

      One wonders how much more abuse the U.S. will accept from Iran before “the time is right” and action is taken. It appears from the President’s Twitter that the absence of loss of life precluded his retaliation against Iran for the destruction of the drone. Are American/allied casualties/deaths the linchpin for “engagement.”?

    After the AOC nonsense concentration camps thing (which she has apparently tried to remake into “mass concentration camps” to use the same terminology but supposedly make it different), a report came out in the media about a supposed “Trump official’ arguing that the migrant children in detainment camps awaiting asylum court did not need toothbrushes and so forth.

    Just wanted to post a Twitter thread on that, in case anyone here is confronted with the trolls or the video on the subject. As usual, more lies.

      Concluding that twitter thread:

      The Dems wont give POTUS any border funding. They are creating and fueling a crisis, just so they can attack him on it.

      There are 3 main areas the Dems and the Media keep coming back to in order to keep the “Hate Trump” train going.

      1. Mueller and Russia
      2. Race Card (now featuring the Central Park Five case)
      3. Border and migrant children

      Also, they will go to MeToo when they can (the new fake sexual assault claim lady).

      What’s ‘good’ about all this is that there really isn’t anything new. It’s recycled argument and issues from the past. Over time, these things fade away (like people are sick of Russia) and become noise.

      Still, they can do damage. Thus it’s not surprising AOC and friends are back to the “kids in cages” stuff.

      I had already surmised that the Enemedia created their own noise around this issue. They constantly twist POTUS words to fit the narrative du jour.

      They wanted their “fear porn” war to blather on about, so they tagged POTUS with their own projections to force his hand on the issue.

      This happens ALL THE TIME. Enemedia will latch onto a perceived issue of their own making, whip it into a full-blown controversy through repetitive soundbites to build momentum, and then dump the whole brouhaha at POTUS feet. They are so predictable by now.

      This is precisely why I stopped watching the alphabet news altogether. It is extremely biased propaganda at best, and dangerously subversive provocation at its worst.

      The 2 week delay is brilliant politics, but yes, for we people waiting so long for action, is a bit painful.

      By delaying two weeks per Pelosi’s request to give the depravocrats time to pass sane asylum laws, PDJT takes the high ground. He is demonstrating that he wants to work toward a long term solution.

      If no sane laws are passed in the next two weeks, people will view his execution of the lawful deportations as just and many middle of the road people will view the depravocrats as being anywhere from ineffective to a bunch of liars and obstructionists.

      For the price of 2 weeks delay, PDJT has implemented a scenario in which “heads the deplorables win, tails the depravocrats lose.”

    In reflecting why President Trump chose to postpone the mass deportations this week, I thought of two reasons:
    1. He will be out of the country for the G-20 Meeting.
    2. The Democrat Primary Debates
    Also, Congress has less than 2 weeks to come up with an immigration plan. Congress is on vacation from July 1-5. Since they don’t work weekends, that only leaves 5 working days.

    PT repeatedly mentioned China interest in the strait being passable as they get most of their oil from the region. This op-ed discusses that aspect.

    Article: Is Turmoil In Persian Gulf Aimed At Containing Beijing’s Access To Region’s Energy Resources? – OpEd

    FTA: Crude oil is the driving engine of Chinese economy and any threats to energy security will inflict a heavy blow to the country’s economic growth. The statistics show that some 43% of the crude oil imported by China passes through the Persian Gulf. Another 4.6% goes from Libya and Venezuela, the US destructive polices have already created a chaotic situation in these two countries.

    Many experts believe that the US withdrawal from Iran’s nuclear deal not only aims at pressurizing Iran, but also to pressurize China to compromise in the trade war that Washington has waged against it. Any conflict or tension in the Persian Gulf region means a great blow to China’s economy. Therefore, many suspicious incidents and tensions created by Washington and its proxies in Persian Gulf can be termed as the White House measures to contain China in order to guarantee the US hegemony.

    Interruption of the oil flow in the Gulf is one way to directly hurt Chinese interests. The Trump administration is, therefore, playing with fire in Iran and a potential conflagration with China.

    The rising tensions between the US and Iran are mainly caused by Tehran’s policy and Washington’s intolerance. Iran’s resistance to the US pressure is in fact shaping an equation in which the Islamic Republic indirectly contributes to the interests of China and even Europe.
