TEXAS BORDER CRISIS TO BE COMPLICATED BY MILITIA [FR linked]
Breitbart ^ | June 20, 2014 | By Bob Price

Posted on 06/20/2014 11:26:10 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

HOUSTON, Texas—Militia groups in Texas and across the nation are responding to the Texas Border Surge announced Wednesday night by the offices of the Governor, Lt. Governor and Texas House Speaker. An announcement was made on several new media outlets including Facebook.

The alert to the civilian militia groups, which includes many groups who showed up at the Clive Bundy ranch in Nevada, calls on all able bodied militia members to converge on the Laredo sector of the Texas/Mexico border. A man who identified himself on a national conference call as “Ruthless” said their objective it to “put up a man-fence” to prevent the illegal aliens from crossing the border in their area of control.

Following is the text of the actual alert which was published on FreeRepublic.com and several other locations:

“***ACTION ALERT*** All Texas & National Militia Available Please Converge Immediately Status GO: Mission close down Laredo Crossing for starters ((All need to be closed)) Operation complete when border fence is in place and secure Name: Love's #298 Love's Travel Stop 28527 Interstate 35, Encinal...

Sounds hokey enough to be a FBI scam. Be careful of the fed traps. They were caught off guard in NV. They won’t be in the future.

That alert was from a rogue group. If and when we mobilize, it will not be through Facebook.

Before you jump into something like this you have to figure out what your intended oucome is. Border security has always been one of the pawns on the feds chessboard but that’s all it ever was. The problem cannot be solved until we return to rule of law and return to ONLY US citizens can get jobs, go to hospitals, get driver licenses, vote or be in the US. Border security is meaningless, this push is meaningless and counterproductive, even if it is done by well meaning people.

If this plays out, I predict a historic event down on the border that will mark a significant change in the future of this country forever.

It may be a Boston Tea Party moment, but I fear it could be something closer to a Night of Broken Glass moment with the American citizens being the victims.

I remember once, years ago, looking at pictures of mothers waiting in line, holding their children, for their turn in the gas chamber, and wondering just how a people, much less a person, could do that... just stand there and wait in line for death, holding their own child no less.

I think that, considering the number of outrageous things that the American citizenry, as a whole, have swallowed without much reaction at all... I fear that we may be slipping down that slope.

But I don't think we are there yet. Not all of us, at the very least.

The Governor can call forth the state military forces and the reserve militia to repel the invasion.

I have not heard that the Governor has made such a call.

Keep it lawful.

I checked out Ginger Russell’s facebook page and the call to the border is not posted. She has all the Governor’s statements and a link to sign a petition but nothing like what was posted on the 18th. She may have removed it, but it is not there now.

She did have another interesting link...

Americans are armed to the teeth for a reason. We will suffer a lot of guff in the name of keeping the peace, but the tyrants know what’s in store for them when they start playing rough. That’s why they try so hard to disarms us. But we will never give up our guns and we will not be herded into the cattle cars! Ever!!

FYI/FWIW

As per, teaparty.org/texasbordermilitia (close, if not exact), sorry, I’m on my tablet.

The militia are reportedly waiting, now, for Gov. Perry to sign off on an order to act as eyes and ears for law enforcement and Guard attending the Border, similar to what they have always done.

The militia leader is calling for a stand down until that order is issued, and saying Perry is interested. The militia leader is/has consulted with a sheriff and judge already.

I heard somewhere that 1 in 10 members of “the millitia” are actually government agents.

That would not surprise me one bit...

Thanks. The link didn’t work but found this:

http://www.teaparty.org/texas-militia-headed-border-45017/

(Tea Party) – Yesterday, there were two separate call outs on the internet indicating that the militia members were needed on the Texas border. One call out indicated the militia members should stand by for orders.

Rick Light on FaceBook:

I will be busy this morning because I will be in a meeting with our Local Judge and Sheriff about the Border issue here in Texas.. I ask all Texas Militia personnel to standby.. Lets do this as the Professionals we are.. I will update ASAP..
SPECIAL: Join the Tea Party REVOLUTION! The Obama Regime must be dismantled!

Mr. Light, a credible militia source, is now posting that Governor Perry has indicated interest in using the militias in tangent with the law enforcement border surge that he announced yesterday.

Update.. RE: Border Op’s for the Texas Militias.
I was just informed that the Governor is interested in using the citizens Militias of Texas in this issue. We need a SOP written up and given to the Governors office for a eyes and ears OP along with Detainee OP’s that is coordinated with the Local and State Law enforcement. So I call on our Texas Commanders to step up and help with the write up.. Time for a phone convention ASAP.. Please get the word out.. I am asking for the Stand down order to be respected until the SOP is approved by the Governor of Texas. I call on The Texas State Militia, and other Texas Militias to assist in the effort.
If this operation moves forward, militias in other states are offering their support deeming this a national issue as opposed to just a Texas problem as indicated by Chad Neal-Ok D.F.,

I can’t speak for all of the Oklahoma Defense Force Militia command but Rick Light as the 1stSgt in the OKDF myself stand with you and seeing how this is a national issue we all need to stand together. If you need additional help I’ll be more than happy to talk to the rest of the group.
AZ Ranger notes that since national security is at stake there may need to be militia support in Nogales Arizona. Further, he cautions that proper protocol needs to be followed:

historically the militia has had authority only to operate within its specified AO, and commanders have always respected that. The only time those things change, is when a militia is responding to a specific request. So, if TX wants other militia organizations to participate. The TX Militia’s leadership should be the people to issue the call, and set the policies of integration and hierarchy once an outside unit arrives on site. Also, that policy can be a lot different for individuals who are not operating as a specific unit. This is an easy fix, and I agree that if TX allows, militias from across the country should show up and contribute to the defense of our borders. I think that Nogales, AZ POE is going to be the next mess to deal with.
Aaron Christopher Combs doesn’t believe that this is an operation that the Governor is currently contemplating.

While i am not calling anyone a liar, but i just got off the phone with austin at the GOV office, Dewhurst and abbott all three have said that NO one has contacted them and they have not contacted any militias about using them. They told me personally that if anything like this were to happen they would not use the militias to write the OP and that it would be a public announcement at a press conf…. this is what i am being told. PERSONALLY by these peoples offices.
Audie Twiford points out that the militias are not vigilantes and that they do need to be called out by the Governor.

It is not the duty of a militia to become a force of vigilantes, it is the duty to prepare and make ready to become organized at the call of our Governor and support him at a state level to be directed by him and the State of Texas in the time of need. Texas didnt get where its at today by being careless and unorganized, the militia has protocols to follow like any other organization.
Will Governor Perry make use of this additional manpower to stop the invasion of Texas by illegals? Time will tell.

I don't think Rick Perry will use the militia. If he does anything, it will be Sheriffs and National Guard, but I doubt he would even do that, except maybe as "humanitarian" support.

From what I've seen, Governor Perry still sees this as a political issue, and that's how he will address it.

Maybe so, but I believe a lot of militia members and patriots are standing by for orders all the same. I believe they are preparing and will answer the call if called up. Our nation and our liberty is at risk.
