President Trump Announces Major Drug Interdiction Effort Targeting Central American Cartels…

Earlier today President Trump and Defense Secretary Esper announced a major deployment of U.S. military to interdict narcotics trafficking from Central America.

On the surface the effort to deploy naval assets to the Caribbean and southern pacific is justified based on intelligence drug cartels will exploit the coronavirus pandemic to ship more narcotics into the U.S.

However, in the bigger picture there’s also a likelihood the CCP would work with their allies in Central American regimes to further weaken the U.S. during a time of increased vulnerability.

In times of war, or severe geopolitical confrontation, exploiting a vulnerability is a common strategy.  Therefore it’s a smart and prudent geopolitical move for President Trump and U.S. military to take very aggressive action against the cartels and their communist sympathizers.  There’s more going on here than appears on the surface.

.

Admitted or not we are at war with the Red Dragon.  Chairman Xi is cunning and strategic; President Trump is countering.  Keep watching…

    The cartels have been waging chemical warfare against us for years- with the help of Congress. The Red Chinese have been waging economic, and now biological warfare against us for years with the help of Congress. Maybe our real enemies are not foreigners?

      It is bigger than that. It is the immigration and sex trade that is coming in to this country on top of all the drug deaths. China is linked to a lot of the fentynal deaths too.

      The linking smoking gun is GPS Fusion and WSJ.

      It is going to be interesting. I bet this ties GPS Fusion, Epsptein and a cast of thousands.

    • I only just came from American Thinker, which has an article this morning about China is going to start a war with the United States.

      The sheer fact of the ongoing traitorous acts of the Insane Left, capped now by this virus attempted national “lockdown”, should be a warning to everyone that China, the Insane Left, and China-centric globalists are all on the same side in wanting to take down America. Nobody we can trust is watching the CIA closely (or telling us what or where the generals are having breakfasts these days, cough-cough, snort-snort…harrumph-harrumph).

      War would shake out that portion of the Democrats (and anti-Trumper Republicans) who are American at heart — which could ironically be the only thing that could rehabilitate that now-illegitimate party — but it will take another Pearl Harbor or 9/11 catastrophe to rally the American cat-herd into a unified country again. And the domestic enemies is a much larger menace this time than in the 1930s or 1990s.

      It looks like the second term will be a real hootenanny. And just for a little more dark humor (see my cough-cough line above): I told you we should have had full declassification a long time ago…

      Replying to CharterOakie: Yes! I agree. There are too many seemingly “random” actions to attribute them all to a viral epidemic. I compiled a list of these:
      -Trump’s language: battle, silent enemy, sneak attack, mobilize, at war,launch, strong together, deploy, etc. This is vocabulary used for war!
      -declaration of National Emergency Order which allows states to use National Guard
      -EO to allow Pentagon to activate up to 1 million retired troops
      -Defense Department enlisted for worldwide “testing” sites
      -Energy Department directed to purchase large quantities of oil for strategic reserfves
      -launch of public website for announcements (ostensibly for COVID, but can be used for other issues)
      -deployment of 2 hospital ships, one on East Coast, one on West Coast
      -HHS beefing up Strategic National Stockpile of medical supplies
      -invoking Defense Production Act which can compel manufacturers to give priority to defense production
      -companies refitting factories for production ostensibly of medical supplies but could be used for armanents
      -launch of Space Force Atlas V rocket, the sixth and final AEHF-6 military satellite (essential to National Security)
      -deployment of military ships and Air Force in Caribbean and Pacific
      (note the military leaders at the Press Briefing stated in conjunction with our allies in other countries)
      -military equipment on the move in Canada
      -military equipment on the move in Germany
      -military intelligence re Iran planning to launch attack on American soldiers in Iraq
      -recent phone calls by President to Russia and China
      -the “Stay-at-Home” or “Shelter-in-Place” orders
      -cancelling of international air flights (reduction in air traffic around the globe – (could imply battle will be fought in the air)
      There are too many “random” measures being taken, that belie the “random” nature of these. I do not believe in coincidences! I believe that the USA and other nations are preparing for WAR! Who the enemy truly is I can only theorize. Now I may have left some “random” events out. Let me know if you can add any to my list.

    Watch and see – we’ll learn that the CoVid virus was spread by enemy combatants; like Al Quaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, Iran sleeper cells or Cartel members and Barry’s other allies.

    I’ve seen it first hand. With the recent low traffic, the combatants stick out like soar thumbs in locations where they seem obviously out of place. They spray business and mall door handles or sidewalks with infectant.

    With Barr and military brass now showing up at the briefings, that should be a clue. Make no mistake – Fauci and Birx now know they’re screwed and part of Barry’s plan.

    Chicoms lost @ trade to Trump.
    Chicoms are losing their hold on N Korea to Trump.

    Chicoms are evil & intent on world dominance, so what else is there to do but release a deadly virus (& to hell with the damage it does to its own people- Hell Mao killed 10’s of millions of Chinese & didn’t lose any sleep over it).

    So now look @ Where we are:
    3 years of tremendous economic growth WIPED OUT in a matter of a few weeks.
    The entire world headed for a global depression with no end to the lockdowns in sight!

    And the Chicoms? They’re busy selling defective medical supplies & goods to the world.

    At lease the Chicom bastards have exposed themselves for what they are: THE ENEMY.

    And I fervently believe that President Trump will DEFEAT THEM on the economic battlefield by taking manufacturing (especially Rx’s & medical supplies) AWAY from the Chicoms & either back into the USA or to friendly allies whose own economies will experience rapid growth as a result of the US re-organizing its non-food supply chains.

    These Chicom bastards cannot be allowed to get away with this!!

      I’m not…as a biological warfare candidate, Wuhan Covid19 is weak indeed. The fact that it is only somewhat contagious (nothing like measles, small pox, etc.) IMHO makes it an unlikely biological warfare agent. Also, the morbidity rate for healthy, military aged with no underlying conditions is near zero. As an attack directed on our economy, there is no way for China or other nation to anticipate future conditions with the uncertainty, ambiguity and complexity involved. Now, IF you made a case that the Democrats and their friends in the media are trying to exploit the pandemic in order to damage the economy and thus, the POTUS at any cost (thousands of sick and dead Americans) I’m with you. But….I don’t know as dogmatic certainty is an absurd position.

      I personally heard him speak many times. A week or so after President Trump won the 2016 election Gen Milley was still the Army Chief of Staff and during a Q and A session after his speech, one of the audience asked/implied that Trump was a tragedy and danger to the nation. Asked his thoughts. Miley’s reply, “I will do everything in my power and that is humanly possible to make him the best and most successful President in the history of the nation. Just like I have tried to make President Obama the most successful. President elect Trump is the people of these United States choice and it is our constitutional duty to support him. Now, IF you or anyone else is not on board with that, see me with your resignation at the end of this session.” General Milley, with a lifetime of combat experience, is the real deal. Thank God we still have great men of honor in the service if our nation.

    Fear strikes people when they think about 1.5 B people and others weaponized to war against us. They shouldn’t. There is no glue to hold China together as a culture and nation like there is in America. The Chi-coms rule through the iron fist. Their own people will turn on them. Their weaponry, including bio and cyber, are second/third rate.

    America has more than any nation on earth to defend the country and allies from evil. Most importantly we have the will of God when we keep our faces turned toward Him and remain in obedience. The Word is clear.

    The danger to America has always been what it still is since inception. Infiltration and destruction from within. The NWO globalists combined with the traitors of the Uni-party are the enemy. 62-63 million patriotic citizens along with our courageous VSG patriot leader and the most capable, patriotic military and first responders on the planet and in world history took over on 11-8-16. That was our second national Independence Day. Personally, I will always have a celebration on that day. The Lord gave us another shot, just like he did the faithful chosen of Israel so many times through the centuries. The on-going messes within the alphabets that need resolution aside – this is a huge moment in world history that is being addressed in a systematic way.

    The Trump Doctrine involves the solidification of North, Central and South America into one cohesive unit for defense, trade, sharing of culture, and harmonious life. The evil from within most be purged – period. The “within” is both continents and the connector. It involves the building of national alliances in all other areas of the world that are capable of effectively countering the Satanists. When B2 and the military appeared behind POTUS to announce the planned actions, it sent that message to the entire world. There is no more planning – it is execution of the plan time. Which is what Gitmo was primarily prepared for and will include the Uni-party traitors and seditionists in the process.

    May God bless and continue to lead our country and other peoples who love and follow Him. Our role is to simply follow the lead, educate, and vote as we know we should.

        Hopefully, on this mission our frigates will be mostly tasked with searching for survivors.

    I want to see our men and women supported by HEAVY arms. Chain driven min-guns, 20mm armament in case they roll out heavy resistance, which they have been known to do. I want the message “loud and clear” that you shoot at one of ours you will be “dispatched” soooo….. give our troops the rules of engagement to carry out that objective. Without good engagement rules we are eunuch!

    We are at war.

    Cyber Warfare: This has been going on for over 20 years.

    Information Warfare: MSM and some D&R politicians are owned by China and blatantly lying.

    Bio Warfare: China removed the strain of the sick and elderly on their financial system, destroyed the world economy to even the playing field, and disappeared the protesters during the chaos. The Chinese rich and powerful were vaccinated…were our collaborators as well?

    Economic Warfare: China was winning until Trump showed up. They were forced into a trade deal they didn’t want and their economy was failing so they unleashed a plague on the world.

    We are about to go kinetic.

    Look at the timing, the result, and the narrative…this was no accident.

    Knowing our enemy:

    Reviewing what we know about China’s efforts to subvert our government, economy, military, here’s a partial list:

    1. The $1.5B investment by the Bank of China in the Biden/Kerry Private Equity Fund, detailed by Peter Schweizer in Secret Empires, and revisited in Profiles in Corruption. I know something about private equity, and the general partners generally draw down a 2% management fee per year of the money committed, and take 20% of any profit made on their investments. That’s $30M per year to pay for fund management expenses, including salaries or draws by the partners. This particular PE fund has a unique advantage in setting up cross-border deals in China, since its major partner is a bank controlled by the Chinese government, i.e., the Chinese Communist Party, which, like royalty of old, has all the power it needs to confer favored status on trading partners. So, in 2014, we can imagine many, many opportunities to put that $1.5B to work in cross-border import/export companies that could spin off huge profits to its owners and be available to sell in whole in part at vastly appreciated (10X style) value. A successful fund could generate $8B in profit over its life (5 – 10 years), with 20% or $1.6B to the general partners. The investments made by the fund have not been publicized to my knowledge, and are usually non-public. Such a YUGE amount seems likely to have been intended by China and the Obama Administration / Deep State / DNC to compensate more people that Hunter Biden or the Biden and Kerry families. An investigation of that fund and its investments – especially the other investors in the fund and the other investors in each portfolio company – would be, in my opinion, highly likely to yield evidence of broad-based corruption in the US, somehow funneled through Hunter Biden. But, Peter Strzok’s wife runs the SEC section that would be in a position to investigate such shenanigans. Also, to investigate the broad-based fraud by Chinese companies going public in the US disclosed in the excellent documentary, “The China Hustle.”

    2. Diane Feinstein’s long-time political operative recently arrested as a long-time China spy. As a member of the Gang of Eight throughout the Obama Administration, DIFI had access to the US’s highest level classified strategic and security matters. Her husband, Richard Blum, is also in the Private Equity business with major dealings in Asia. It would be worth cross-checking the Biden/Kerry investments and co-investors with Blum’s many firms and their co-investors. Not saying there’s anything there, just what should be investigated if we are to know our enemies.

    3. China has been courting US academia for many years, with prestigious appointments for US faculty to spend summers visiting and teaching at Chinese universities, with many students coming to study, and much funding going to US university research. Reports of that Harvard professor recently arrested, and that Chinese natives who have become US citizens, long worked here, are welcomed and treated as heroes for spying and delivering US government and corporate secrets to China exist, and has made me rethink many experiences I’ve had with respect to Chinese investors and investment funds looking to invest in US start-up companies in high tech fields.

    4. Unfortunately, our CIA appears to have been engaged repeatedly in illegal activity over decades, including engaging in international drug trade, arms dealing, subverting foreign governments and starting wars serving obscure interests, many of them potentially adverse to the US, and have repeatedly escaped accountability for them. John Brennan, Bob Mueller, Eric Holder, James Comey appear to have routinely abused NSA databases to spy on Americans, without accountability or transparency, and those abuses continue even through today, the fourth year of the Trump Administration, all without accountability. Both Brennan and Comey at times have self-identified as “Communist.”

    5. US news media and entertainment media all have major business in China, and the China CCP openly censors not only what they present in China but what they present here and elsewhere, using tried and true Orwellian Big Lie methods to control the narrative concerning them.

    6. China also wields extraordinary influence over international organizations like WHO, the UN, and trade organizations. It took Trump to wake up myself and many in America to the uniquely favorable status China enjoyed in “free” world trade. Free for me but not for thee.

    So that’s a start. If it all doesn’t come crashing down very soon, and the economic shutdown continues, if Trump doesn’t get his second term and a Congress and a cleaned up version of the administration that serves the US instead of corrupting influences, the future will be grim.

    My deseased brother was involved in a interdiction operation in the 80’s. He was AWACS crew chief. They were stationed in Porto Rico monitoring flights out of S America for ~9 Months and yes traffickers were caught. Problem was there wasn’t enough interdiction upon arrival so it never made a dent in the cartel. Of course that was then and this is now and under the command of our VSPDJT. I have high hopes for this round and hope ground strikes are authorized.

    First time poster here, but long time reader of the articles and intelligent comments. Great website and hats off to this community! I wanted to add something to this that may or may not be relevant. My father, an avid skywatcher (and retired from the Navy), counted twenty-two satellites flying over (we’re in Oklahoma) a week ago. This was within a two-hour time span. He mentioned that there was a lot of traffic up there and that this was unusually high. Reading this article (and the comments) and considering my father’s observation, I do wonder if we’re building up to something bigger with China?

    Yes, President Trump is realigning the global politic and trade. IMHO this a work in progress that will be completed in 4 1/2 years. I also believe at that time we will all understand the full meaning of MAGA and keep it that way. That’s why we must pray for our President’s safety.

        Thank you, yes! I’ve never felt such a strong urgency to pray for a president as I have with this one. I did not vote for him the first time around and am embarrassed to admit that I was apathetic to vote at the time since George W. Bush destroyed my confidence in American leadership and Obama completely vaporized it (even after reluctantly voting for John McCain to prevent Obama).

        Praying that Trump’s wisdom is God-given and also that blinders begin falling off of people here and worldwide. There are real and terrifying consequences of this globalism, which is nothing more than a Tower of Babel — and we know how the last one came crashing down!

        BTW, will be voting for Trump in the next round, along with my wife.
