MEXICANS FIRE HIGH CALIBER WEAPONS AT U.S. BORDER PATROL-THIS IS WAR!
Tea Party Command Center Blogger Spot ^ | July 20, 2014 | Asst Natl Dir Melony B. DeFord

Posted on 07/20/2014 6:44:05 PM PDT by lbryce

U.S. Border Patrol agents on the American side of the Rio Grande were forced to take cover Friday night when high-caliber weaponry was fired at them from the Mexican side of the river, sources told FoxNews.com.

The weapons were fired at the U.S. side of the riverbank in the area of the Rincon Peninsula across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, Mexico, at about 8:30 p.m., sources said. Bullets ricocheted into an area where Border Patrol agents were positioned, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told FoxNews.com.

Border Patrol sources confirmed Gohmert’s account, and said the shots may have been fired by .50-caliber weapons.

“We don’t have any armor that can stop a .50-caliber round, so our Border Patrol agents had to take cover when the rounds were richocheting around them,” said Gohmert, who has been in the area for the last week to get a first-hand look at the border situation.

First of all, damm them Mexicans. Second of all, if anyone still thinks it's not serious, then kindly move to the Ukraine. Thirdly, if anyone thinks Obama and his treasonous SOBs didn't know it would happen, shame on you. This thing is worse than we could ever imagine. The problem is no one in the Obama Administration will talk about it until they read it in the papers which could take weeks.

The Border Patrol has a Union — when does it finally decide to go on strike over this matter???

Probably weapons supplied by Eric Holder. Has Obama given the ‘STAND DOWN’ order to the Border Patrol yet? P*SSY Obama won’t do a damn thing about it.

Question:

The drug cartels trying to provoke a war so that the USA will attempt to overthrow the corrupt Mexican government and the drug cartels can then seize control?

If they go on strike the last meager line of defense collapses, all detained illegals will be released and the flood will increase by orders of magnitude.

obamma , kgb, muslims, we are under attack, obamma wont talk because it is his plan..fast and furious was one of thousands of shipments to arm the invasion force, they have been slipping in for decades.. if we cannot sector off areas with military our country is gone..

I think the most direct course of action would be to start running commercials asking all americans to disobey obammas orders, call him a traitor, and focus on the federal government removal of power through strikes and civil disobedience..block the borders of states

Obama should have called out the National Guard the moment he heard this news and troops should be at the border almost immediately. Any thing less is dereliction of duty.

The Obungler probably gave the cartels the order to fire.

A set of balls. The only reason he isn’t is because the establishment GOP is pro-amnesty and alot of Perry’s $$$ backers are too...he doesn’t want to ruin his 2016 run. Perry can call them out, but instead he’ll just pose with Hannity running around looking tough on the issue.

Hell. At this point send in a batch of good, seasoned hunters with scoped .308 rifles.

I’ll bet they’d inflict more damage than those POS cartel scumbags.

For all you Texans, please read the wikipedia on The battle of Chapultepec (halls of Montezuma) 1847 where Americans once again had to fight against Santa Anna some 11 years after the Alamo. There were well known heroes on both sides of the civil war, fight against the Mexicans. Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Scott, Beauregard, etc. The Marines wear a blood stripe on their pants because of this battle.
Also Antonio López de Santa Anna. After having executed 342 Texan prisoners in 1836 (the same March month of the Alamo) he was allowed to return to Mexico by president Andrew Jackson (looks alot like John Kerry I might add) in 1837. This really chaps me right here, later in life he lived in New York of all places.
Note to service men: traitors need to be killed or hanged outright when you catch them. Enough is enough, we’re being fired on. I’m at a rally point.

Our BP has their hands tied by both parties. Remember it was a GOP POTUS and his USDA's who put two BP's in Fed Pen for shooting a precious invader. Special Interest previous administrations of both parties and this one as well panders too want cheap labor.

Some law makers and other officials need to be dragged by their ears down to the border and have to stand there for 48 hours day and night. I don't mean 5 miles away I mean at the border. I'd drag a few special interest donors behind the invasion down there as well. Let them crap their pants.

If the House wants to put pressure on Obama to do something, it could pass a Declaration of War resolution and then send it over to the Senate for action or inaction. But, at least it would require a response.

read it in the papers

Could take more than weeks, if they learned to read via commie core. Or if the reporters learned to write using commie core, no one can understand it.

Bring in the 75th rangers and send them into Mexico to wipe out the renegades or use M3 Carl Gustav 84mm recoilless rifles or FGM-148 Javelin anti-tank guided weapons. When the Mexicans want to play war, light them up with a Ranger hunter-killer team or a recoilless round or an ATGW missile. Repeat until the renegade Federales realize they will die if they provoke fights with the USBP.

Mexico is a criminal state, and it needs to be treated like one, with sniper teams and artillery embedded along the border to respond to hostilities.

General Winfield Scott screwed up in 1848 when the Treaty of Vera Cruz gave Mexico back part of its country. We should have kept the whole thing and turned it into a prosperous set of individual states like the ones we kept.
It’s too late now.
