That a district judge would overrule the president of the United States on a matter of border security in wartime is absurd. Pat Buchanan
It takes more than just walking across the border to become an American citizen. It’s what’s in our souls. Duncan D. Hunter
If we’re so cruel to minorities, why do they keep coming here? Why aren’t they sneaking across the Mexican border to make their way to the Taliban? Ann Coulter
Liberals (Democratic communists) are increasingly in favor of open borders to anyone who wants to enter the United States and national sovereignty be damned. But not that long ago they all wanted border security.
Schumer 2009: Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple. He was all for spending $25 billion to secure the southern border until January of 2018.
Hillary 2015: I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in.
Obama 2005: We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked.
Bill Clinton 1996: His State of the Union address that year showed a striking comparison to what President Trump has said about the subject. We are a nation of laws.
Dianne Feinstein 2006: Democrats are solidly behind controlling the border, and we support the border fence with the Secure Fence Act of 2006.
Nancy Pelosi 2013: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi referred to border security as a “basic principle,” and urged congress to support legislation that she claimed would secure the U.S. border.
So, what changed? President Trump tried to wheel and deal with Schumer and Pelosi regarding funds for the wall, even offering Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty. Americans didn’t want it, but neither Pelosi nor Schumer would accept it despite their previous claims. The Democratic socialist hatred for our President supersedes protection for American citizens from illegal alien criminals, Mexican gangs, drug lords and yes Islamic terrorists.
Open Borders and Terrorists
Ranchers and farmers are finding prayer rugs along the United States-Mexico border – evidence corroborating President Donald Trump’s assertion that migrants from Islamic terrorist hotbed nations in the Middle East are breaking into the country.

Texas rancher Dr. Mike Vickers found an Urdu-to-English (official language of Pakistan) dictionary dropped under the cattle fencing on his 1,000-acre ranch north of the U.S.-Mexico border.
While local ranchers have to contend with torn-up fences, broken water lines, contaminated wells and robbery on a daily basis from illegal immigrants streaming through, a Texas Border Patrol agent said there is “no doubt” that among the hordes of Central Americans are also crossers from Pakistan and Afghanistan, raising significant national security concerns.
Other than Mexicans (OTMs) cross our southern border every day and never turn themselves in to Border Patrol like the family units or children.
Dr. Vickers’ wife, Linda, said the southern border ranchers have been dealing with illegals for years and no one seemed to care until our government started shipping illegal aliens all over the country. Once that happened, it wasn’t just the ranchers’ problem; it became the nation’s problem.
The southern border is 1,933 miles long, and it crosses through arid deserts, rugged mountains, and winding rivers, many areas of which are unprotected by border security, and easily crossed border obstructions.
Hezbollah and Latin America
Relations between Hezbollah and Latin American drug cartels have been well known for two decades. In recent years, border security officials in southwest states have seen an alarming rise in Hezbollah insignia tattoos among imprisoned drug cartel operatives suggesting a very strong relationship amongst rank and file these days, let alone at the command level.
Over the years pro-Iranian websites have proliferated across Latin America. Latin American politicians, notably Venezuela’s Maduro, have been in bed with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRGC)/Hezbollah operatives for years.
The terror threat from the south is not so much from illegal Latin American immigrants per se, but from Shiite Lebanese Hezbollah working with Iranian IRGC. Of course, Hezbollah can recruit South Central Americans as operatives as well. There is little doubt that Hezbollah’s connections enable them to enter the U.S. as they desire, through our porous border with Mexico.
Our efforts to combat Islamic terrorism needs to consider the open southern border, the IRGC and Hezbollah threat to national security.
Constitutional Border Empowerment
Donald Trump is the commander in chief of the military and explicitly empowered by the U.S. Constitution to enforce our borders. (Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution). As for declaring a national emergency, even though he had to veto the no vote, he won, because there weren’t enough votes to override his veto. He could have built our border wall in the past eighteen months with defense department funds.
Instead some mysterious forces prevent him from taking action. Why? Former Assistant States Attorney, Sidney Powell, author of Licensed to Lie, tells us exactly why in her latest article, The Ultimate Betrayal. Please take the time to read it.
The President of the United States has full authority and full power to shut down the border of the United States to protect the nation and the people in the United States. It’s actually enshrined, not only in our U.S. Constitution, but in the U.S. federal code. It is Title VIII U.S. Code 1181(f). It gives the president the power to suspend the entry of all aliens whenever he finds their entry would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. He can shut it down whenever he wants to, based on those criteria. It is statutory.
District court judges stopped his orders regarding our southern border several times. They also repeatedly stopped the President from restricting who enters our country from Muslim nations with a high incidence of terrorists.
But now, even the “regressive” L.A. Times admits the courts won’t stop his emergency declaration or his border wall.
President Trump’s Travel Ban
Finally, on June 26, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld President Trump’s third executive order (Presidential Proclamation 9645), entitled, Enhancing Vetting Capabilities and Processes for Detecting Attempted Entry into the United States by Terrorists or other Public-Safety Threats, and its accompanying travel ban of 7-8 states known for terrorism. In the 5-4 opinion penned by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court found that Trump’s immigration restriction fell “squarely” within the president’s authority. The court rejected claims that the ban was motivated by religious hostility.
We need a secured southern border, with walls like those built in Israel and Turkey.
Turkey/Syria Border Wall
Turkey has completed the construction of a 911-kilometer wall (566 mile) bordering with Syria, a country plagued by civil war since 2011. It is the third longest wall in the world after the Great Wall of China.
Over the period 2015-2018 Erdogan put up approximately 500 miles of 3-meter-high concrete wall (9’10”) along his border with Syria. The border wall incorporates physical, electronic and advanced technology components. The physical components include modular concrete walls, patrol routes, manned and unmanned towers and passenger tracks. It is backed up by some 150 towers and fixed lookout posts with electro optic devices and patrolled using armored vehicles.
The European Union funded much of the Turkey/Syrian wall and all of the technology and the armored vehicle cost in order to keep Syrians inside Syria and prevent them from making their way west.
Israeli Border Walls
Illegal immigration to Israel from Africa became a major problem beginning in 2007. Until then, approximately 2,700 illegal immigrants had entered Israel through the Egyptian border in the previous decades. Over the next five years approximately 61,000 illegal immigrants entered Israel through the Egyptian border, the overwhelming majority coming from Eritrea and Sudan.
Israeli/Egyptian Border Wall
Once the 250-mile steel border fence was completed in December 2012, the numbers of illegal immigrants dropped from 10,431 in 2012 to less than 150 in 2013, and now even less, down to 11 per year.
Israel’s West Bank barrier is a wall built by the State of Israel to separate Palestinian territories from Israel. It is built mostly of fences and in some places, it is built of high concrete walls.
Israel’s West Bank barrier
Israel is now beginning work on a barrier in the Golan Heights area to prevent attacks by ISIS and other radical factions involved in the Syrian Civil War.
Our borders should be just as protected. “Build the Wall” wasn’t just a slogan! Now armed Mexican troops are crossing the border and disarming our own military.
Armed Mexican Troops
Armed Mexican troops disarmed two United States soldiers while they were on the American side of the border, U.S. defense officials have said.
U.S. Northern Command said in a statement that “five to six Mexican military personnel questioned two U.S. Army soldiers who were conducting border support operations” this month. The U.S. soldiers were in an unmarked Customs and Border Protection (CBP) vehicle near the southwest border near Clint, Texas.
Officials confirmed that the Mexican troops were armed with what seemed to be rifles. They raised their weapons when they saw the two U.S. soldiers, and then took a pistol from one and put it in the CBP vehicle. According to officials talking to CNN, the two Americans obliged “in an attempt to de-escalate a potential volatile situation.”
A senior defense official says the Pentagon is reviewing how U.S. soldiers responded during the incident in which Mexican troops detained and disarmed Americans on Texas soil.
Border Militia Arrested
The FBI arrested Larry Mitchell Hopkins,69, for alleged unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition days after his group posted videos that appeared to show armed men stopping 200 migrants at the border in New Mexico, ordering them to sit on the ground and coordinating with US border patrol agents to have them taken into custody.
The United Constitutional Patriots have never killed or wounded even one illegal immigrant, something that cannot be said about the so-called professional cops at the Mexican border region,” said former police sergeant Leslie B. Crimmons, who trains civilians in self-defense and firearms safety. And yes, citizens do have the right to arrest. See Jim Kouri’s recent article for the full story.
On June 18, 1916, U.S. President Wilson ordered 110,000 National Guardsmen from state militias to the Mexican border for patrol duty due to the unstable border situation and hostilities mainly from Mexican bandit, Pancho Villa.
It was the US militia that joined forces with the Continental army to defeat the British and create this nation. It was the US militia that was at Bunker Hill and Concord to stop the redcoats. Articles are labeling those Americans defending the border as “fascists” that are operating under the motivation of being “xenophobic,” when they’re only trying to help defend our nation from invasion.
No Assimilation, No Love for America
Migrants heading north to the U.S. border are not carrying American flags. They carry the flags of the countries they’re leaving. And most of those migrants are strong young well-fed men.
A photo from the Associated Press shows protesters burning an American flag with a swastika painted on it in support of the migrant caravan heading through Central America for the United States. Link
The defiant message is that they’ll cross the U.S. border any time they like, immigration laws be damned. They’re hoping to demonstrate such a reality with huge masses of people, who will ultimately be daring the U.S. military or border guards to fire on them.
Then their leaders will claim a propaganda victory over some migrant’s dead body while the U.S. wraps itself in pretzels over its dreaded crimes again unarmed civilians. Link
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice. Sadly, far too many Americans are ignorant of what is happening in our country and that the southern border is actually non-existent. Taxpayers are given a yearly bill of $150 billion for the cost of migrant invaders. The hordes of illegal aliens from third world countries have no desire to assimilate into American society.
Americans who understand what is happening to our nation are growing tired of our ancestors being compared to the migrants of today. Settling in an undeveloped land and building a civilization is not comparable to invading a post-industrial nation and signing up for welfare.
We’ve had enough! Close the border and build the wall…
