  • Wars We Were Never Meant to Win

    Terrorism, illegal drugs, and the flow of illegal immigrants are all weapons in the hybrid war being waged against America by those with common cause to destabilize and collapse America from within. It has been over 17 years since George Bush announced the war on terrorism and 47 years since Richard Nixon announced the war on drugs. Does anyone wonder why the most powerful nation on earth has not won either? I do. The current border war and heated debate over the building of a security wall on our southern border sounds disturbingly familiar.

    BREAKING NEWS: White House says Trump will sign spending bill to avoid shutdown but will declare border emergency TOO – as Pelosi warns GOP a future Democratic president could use the same tactic to impose gun control..."I know the Republicans have some unease about it, no matter what they say. Because if the president can declare an emergency on something that he has created as an emergency, an illusion that he wants to convey, just think of what a president with different values can present to the American people,' she said. 'You want to talk about a national emergency? Let's...

    In the early hours of the morning, Congress delivered an absolute dud of a spending bill in order to keep the largely-useless federal government open at the expense of people who fund it. As noted by Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies, the bill will hamper the ability for the Department of Homeland Security, and thus Immigration and Customs Enforcement, to remove illegal aliens from the United States. “None of the funds provided by this Act… may be used by the Secretary of Homeland Security to place in detention, remove, refer for a decision whether to initiate removal...

  • A fenceless border is defenseless

    There must be numerous Democratic officials who are aware that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have crossed the line into the absurd regarding their anti-border wall fiasco but remain silent. Such cannot be said about the growing number of newly elected and "converted" Democrat radicals who echo extreme views without the slightest understanding of the facts. Reuters on February 6 published a piece titled "U.S. Border Officials Don't Share Trump's Zeal for Border Wall." The article reported on a classified briefing given by Customs and Border Protection agents to lawmakers, including Democratic senator Dick Durbin, who emerged from that briefing...

    The Chippewa Valley school district in suburban Detroit didn’t retreat in 2017 after voters overwhelmingly defeated its proposal to borrow $90 million for spending pitched as “protecting the community’s investment in our schools.” Instead it rebranded the package as if lives were on the line – as an effort to literally protect students. Last year, voters approved the bond proposal with the campaign tag line “safe schools, strong schools” emphasizing the need for new security funding. School districts around the nation have found that security sells in the year since a troubled student killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas...

    President Trump on Sunday sought to pin blame on Democrats for what lawmakers described as faltering negotiations on border security funding. "I don’t think the Dems on the Border Committee are being allowed by their leaders to make a deal," Trump tweeted. "They are offering very little money for the desperately needed Border Wall & now, out of the blue, want a cap on convicted violent felons to be held in detention!" In a follow-up tweet, Trump suggested that Democrats "want a Shutdown" to change the subject from a week of difficult headlines. He referenced his State of the Union...

    EL PASO, Texas People walking over the Paso del Norte Bridge linking this West Texas border city to Mexico can watch President Donald Trump’s border wall getting bigger in real time. Workers in fluorescent smocks can be seen digging trenches, pouring concrete and erecting rust-colored slabs of 18-foot-high metal to replace layers of barbed wire-topped fencing along the mud-colored Rio Grande, which is usually little more than a trickle. Most of the more than 70,000 people who legally cross four city bridges daily — to shop, go to school and work — pay the construction in the heart of downtown...

    Was I the only one who caught the look on Whitaker's face when Roger Stone's arrest came up at his inquisition? Watch for the questions from Collins to Whitaker, especially when it delves into the timing of when CNN knew of the impending raid. Whitaker acknowledged that it would be illegal for a news media to be alerted to a raid while it was still sealed. His look at that point in time betrayed his thoughts of "... crap, they can take out the security clearances of Mueller's entire team with this one ...". Leaking a raid while it is...

    Walls, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insists, are “immoral.” The Democratic Leader of the Senate, New York Senator Chuck Schumer, opposes a wall. Democratic Congressman Hakeem Jeffries insists that a border wall would be “ineffective” and is a “fifth-century solution to a 21st-century problem.” And on and on go Democrats about their refusal to fund a wall along the southern border. But wait. When it comes to having walls and steel barriers to protect — themselves? Well, see for yourself. This week I took a trip to Capitol Hill, cell phone camera in hand, to see for myself just exactly what...

    SANTA FE, N.M. -- The governor of New Mexico ordered the withdrawal of the majority of the state's National Guard troops from the U.S. border with Mexico on Tuesday, in a move that challenges President Trump's description of a security crisis. Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced the partial withdrawal shortly before Trump's State of the Union address. Her Republican predecessor deployed National Guard troops to the border in April 2018 at Trump's suggestion, and 118 remained there before Tuesday's reversal. "New Mexico will not take part in the president's charade of border fear-mongering by misusing our diligent National Guard troops,"...

    “A recent malware distribution campaign dubbed ‘VeryMal’ leverages an ancient technique called steganography — the hiding of secret information in plain sight — to distribute Mac malware,” Joshua Long reports for Intego. “The VeryMal campaign was caught distributing OSX/Shlayer, which was originally discovered by Intego researchers one year ago.” “Although the concept of steganography has been around for hundreds of years, it is not something we see in a lot of Mac malware campaigns,” Long reports. “The VeryMal campaign used some cleverly crafted JavaScript code to look for secret information stored within a seemingly innocuous JPEG image file. The hidden...

    US aid to the Palestinian Authority’s security services will end this week at the PA’s request, senior PLO official Saeb Erekat said Wednesday, according to AFP. The move is meant to preempt lawsuits over alleged support for terrorism. The PA has demanded the funding stop at the end of January for fear it could expose the PA to costly lawsuits under the US Anti-Terrorism Clarification Act (ATCA), which comes into force on February 1. "The money will be cut off," Erekat told AFP, adding, "We don't want to receive any money if this will take us to court." .....

    Rhino Hide is a completely new category of product made from a two-part composite-reinforced liquid and filled with a special aggregate. The blend is poured into small holes at the top of any standard wall. Once the wall is filled, the liquid chemically cures in a few hours to a hard plastic consistency. The formulated composite in this new product makes the walls or structures they are filled with impervious to projectiles from small arms fire or projectiles from extreme weather such as hurricanes or tornadoes.

    The government shutdown, now in its 30th day and being the longest ever in U.S. history, has caused massive media coverage on Transportation Security Agency (TSA) employees and their fate due to the shutdown. This is precisely because the TSA could bring the country to a virtual standstill, and thus has more power than most to end the shutdown by pressure. Over this holiday weekend, sick call-ins for TSA employees not getting paid during the shutdown hit 10 percent, suggesting that the problem could spiral out of hand, despite the Agency’s insistence to the contrary. There’s plenty of reason for...

    (snip) -- Variously described in appearance as a pair of fictional villains from a James Bond film to a modern version of the American Gothic painting, Sen. Charles Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had all the sincerity of used idea salespeople in their rebuttal to President Donald Trump’s appeal to the public for support of his border security effort amid a partial government shutdown. (snip) -- If the issue were not already, it has now become a contest of will between the president and Democrat leadership. While Trump continues to be Trump, Schumer and Pelosi on Tuesday night provided...
