BREAKING: Texas and California Militia Unite to Defend the Border
Conservative Tribune ^ | July 6 2014 | Conservative Tribune

Posted on 07/06/2014 10:06:04 AM PDT by PoloSec

The lack of action on border security from the Obama administration has prompted a wide variety of responses. State officials close to the situation in Texas and Arizona have called for federal assistance but have received little response, leaving them to do what they can with their own resources.

Civilian protestors have coordinated to challenge the transportation of illegal immigrants throughout the country by Department of Homeland Security agents. Other civilians, organized into militia groups, have moved troops to Arizona and Texas to assist in closing a border that the federal government seems content to leave open despite the growing violence.

Now California militia members have united with their comrades in Texas to support state efforts, challenge Obama’s apathy, and assist in securing the nation’s southern border.

From Fox News:

Free Republic founder Jim Robinson posted this on the popular conservative internet forum on Friday evening.

We have independent units from the Bolinas Border Patrol and the Central Valley Citizens militia joining forces with independent citizens militia units of Texas to defend our southern border in Texas, to protest Obama’s lawless open borders policies and to rally support for Governor Perry to officially call out Guard units and Texas militia units at his disposal to defend the border!! Lawsuits will not cut it. The invasion is happening now. Action must be taken NOW!!

Lawsuits have indeed been threatened, and more will no doubt come as this president and his administration continue to ignore their duty, trample on the rights of Americans, and flout both the law and the Constitution.

Under the guise of humanitarianism, Obama is cynically using the hopes of tens of thousands of immigrants for his own personal gain, despite the dire consequences for them and for his own citizens.

Closing the border with civilian militia may not be the optimal manner in which to address the growing border crisis. But it certainly tops the alternative which, from the Washington Obamacrats, appears to be nothing.

Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you support civilian efforts to close the border in lieu of federal action.

While I support this and more 110%, this is exactly what the government wants, a showdown.

So be it. I don't think it will be the "Machete" type the proglodytes think it would be.

Probably. But he is effectual in doing what he was placed in the Presidency to do. That cannot be said of the Republicans in the Senate.

One more body out there is NOT going to make a difference. But he has a website that CAN be used to organize people to resist this invasion. Where is the special border volunteer thread? What about a protest thread for people to head off the Bus caravans? This would be a great site to organize more Murrieta style protests. You can find where they`re planning to send them here https://www.numbersusa.com/news/not-my-backyard-feds-efforts-relocate-illegal-aliens-border

Maybe this is really what government wants but when they get it they might lose the resulting civil war. King Obama just might see the inside of a 6 by 6 hard jail cell. Hope they come that small.

Our founding fathers did not seek war, but they realized that ultimately that was the only way to stop the tyranny. I don’t think that King George thought his own subjects would turn against him the way they did. Our current government is pushing its citizens to that brink. I think we should be prepared that the coming months may bring things that I honestly never thought I would see. Keep your powder dry, folks.

I think the left is just salivating at the chance for martial law to be declared.

Should we have a continuous thread here for posting photos of encounters?

That way we can have more eyes able to keep such photos (read: EVIDENCE) on multiple hard drives for the historical record.

"this is exactly what the government wants, a showdown. "

Au contraire ... the government backed down from a showdown at the Bundy Ranch earlier this year. The government does not want a showdown. Because if it happens, the gov't will be accused of not enforcing the law while ordinary citizens do. Then the midterm elections will swing even more to the GOP. I'd be surprised if any seat in the House except in the inner city went to the Dems.

Obama was forced into this situation by that a--wipe Mexican congressman (yes, he's Mexican because he doesn't have a patriotic bone in his body) from Chicago, Luis Gutierrez. With help from Holder and Johnson, they created the crisis and then innocently pretended that it happened on its own. Sound familiar? Think Operation Fast and Furious.

They didn't expect that normal Americans would rise up and demand that disease-ridden, filthy, and uneducated "immigrants" be sent home.

As I understand it these people are crossing the border/Rio Grande and turning themselves in.
Once they are on Texas soil what’s the plan.

******

A law that needs to be revisited/changed.

....Under an anti-trafficking statute adopted — with bipartisan support — in 2008,
minors caught traveling without their parents, if they are not from Mexico, cannot be
rapidly deported. Youths from Central America must be transferred within 72 hours
from the Border Patrol to the Department of Health and Human Services, which detains
them in shelters and works to release them to parents or other responsible adults in
the United States....

That will amount to a drop in the bucket. Mostly for show. Until the day they’re able to empty out those Federal camps inside the states, it’ll be a waste of time, effort and money.

Also IMHO, the DHS thugs who are aiding and abetting illegal aliens at our southern border, and the TSA thugs groping children and 80 year old ladies in our airports, are cut from the same cloth and received the same twisted “training” prior to reporting to their duty stations.

Where’s my tinfoil hat?!

Murrieta, California is about to become this century’s Lexington & Concord. The Feds are going in with jackbooted heavies with riot shields to protect the next bus convoy of illegals, & they don’t care what anyone thinks.

‘Bout to get ugly, folks. And militia people, watch out for spies & saboteurs in your ranks. Govags will attempt provocations to justify crackdowns against armed citizens.

The bundy ranch episode was barely a blip compared to this.

the federal government has no right to foist on states, cities and citizens the bills for welfare, health care, spread of disease, etc these lawbreakers will bring. lawbreakers who would be deported if the fed were doing its job properly.

This tyranny cannot be allowed to stand.

Obama is making war on law abiding citizens to protect illegal lawbreakers. This country has never sunk so low. Shame on the american people for re-electical this tyrannical dictator. I can only hope a bundy style showdown is coming, because this is utterly intolerable.

Cameras are just as important, if not more so, than the rifles being taken to the border crossings...

Like I said before, the cartels and other human trafficking organizations are going to take some pretty good pot shots at those standing right on the shoreline...

It is what I would do to make the militias look really bad...

They will probably send a group of illegals over, right near civilian militia positions, and shoot them from their side o the border, and get to the news media first saying it was the militia on our side that fired at the illegals...

So for all intents and purposes, this already has the look of being ugly (for our side) before it really gets implemented...

Be prepared for the backlash that is coming...

If they are doing it in California, you can bet the Feds in Texas, along the border, will be ready to do their thing as well...

Maybe Perry will have to call the guard in to maintain order...They will not be on our side at all...

“I think the left is just salivating at the chance for martial law to be declared.”

Declaring it is one thing - enforcing it is entirely different. If anyone is killed by a member of the DHS SWAT team in Murrieta it will signify the opening of a long, long hunting season on DHS (and other government) agents. It will not be pretty nor will it end as well as .gov thinks.

If fired upon first, I don’t have a shred of doubt what’ll happen next.

IF — and you’d best pray it’s the most humongous “IF” ever in all of American history — DHS fires on the militia, that will be the first fusillade in CWII.

I wouldn’t expect the GOP to come down on the right side of that, either; they are, as the Almighty once labeled a fading Egypt, “a splintered reed.”

Another important consideration on why the government doesn’t want a confrontation is because there’s no guarantee that Federal officers will actually participate in one.

And what happens if/when Federal officers start refusing to obey orders?

People, I think, don’t give Federal officers enough credit. Iirc there were clear indications, posted in threads here, during the Bundy Ranch situation that the Federal officers wanted no part of a showdown, and were clearly communicating that up their chains of command.

Then consider all the NPS Rangers who found other directions to look in, other places to be, during the whole barrycades civil disobedience during the shutdown ...

There must surely be someone in DHS with enough math skills to figger out that 100 million Americans armed to the teeth with 300 million privately owned firearms is force that shouldn’t be stick-poked? Probably should be talked to politely. Probably shouldn’t be yellow-taped out of public rights-of-way. Probably shouldn’t be confined to free-speech-areas. And probably shouldn’t have publicly owned weapons pointed at them?

Confronting un-armed citizens with burp guns, as with Elian Gonzales, is career-risky at best.

Yes, since they have been so far unable to confiscate your guns via the legislative or judicial processes, use of executive powers is their only remaining alternative.

Once done, you really will see fundamental change.
