Pentagon Dropped Major Border Mission News After Deploying Tons Of Troops

Published

on

Pentagon needs to protect the USA and the USA’s borders 100%. Being politically correct is not going to protect our border.

Good to finally have a President who considers America a nation.

From The Daily Caller:

The Pentagon is no longer using the name “Operation Faithful Patriot” to refer to the ongoing deployment of troops to the southwest border and will instead couch the mission in more generic terms of support to federal law enforcement, according to U.S. officials.

“We are not calling it ‘Operation Faithful Patriot,’ we are calling it ‘border support,’” Pentagon spokesperson Lt. Col. Jamie Davis said Wednesday, according to CNN.

The directive to drop the “Faithful Patriot” moniker came from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’ office and was issued on Election Day, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing administration officials. One explanation for the change was that the troops at the border were not part of an actual “operation,” a term typically associated with combat situations.

The Pentagon has not publicly given a reason for the name change.

As of early November, roughly 8,000 active duty troops to had been sent to Texas, Arizona and California under the formerly named Faithful Patriot deployment. President Donald Trump ordered troops to the border in response to a caravan of several thousand Central American migrants traveling north through Mexico with the aim of applying for asylum in the U.S.

Critics of the move accused Trump of using the deployment to stir up fears of illegal immigration in advance of the midterm elections. Many also said it was inappropriate to send to military to the border to confront asylum seekers at the ports of entry.

When asked last week if the deployment was politically motivated, Mattis said, “We don’t do stunts.”

In anticipation of the caravan, the bulk of which is not expected to arrive until later in November, troops have mostly been shoring up border security infrastructure and laying barbed wire.

Big Actress Considering Giving Her Baby Away To Another Country Save It From TRUMP

Holy CRAP.

This is some PEAK Trump Derangement Syndrome, folks.

I mean… what planet do these nutjobs even LIVE ON?!

Actress Amber Tamblyn of “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” recently revealed that on the night Hillary lost, she went into a panic attack imagining she would have to give her unborn child up for adoption to Canadians or some ridiculous crap.

I’m not even exaggerating here.

As the night wore on and it became clear that Clinton was facing a steep challenge to the presidency, “I swigged some more Zantac, and my baby shoved her foot into my ribs, as if to foreshadow the pain that was yet to come,” Tamblyn read. Her line “Katy Perry anxiously chewed on a celery stick” drew some laughs. When Clinton’s director of strategic communications informed Javits Center attendees that Clinton would not be speaking, Tamblyn came to a grim conclusion: “A dark realization swallowed me: I was going to bring a baby into this world. And not just any baby: a girl.” Tamblyn recalled imagining if she should give her baby away to Canadians or Swedes.

I’m sorry… but if things REALLY were so bad, wouldn’t you go away WITH your baby? You’d really just hand your baby over to someone?

This is so freaking INSAAANE.

I mean – WTF?! Did any of you ever consider giving up your children because of Obama? No? Yeah. Didn’t think so.

The Hollywood Reporter has more on this story:

Tamblyn, the final reader of the afternoon, shared an essay about the 2016 Election Night from her upcoming release Era of Ignition. The essay recalled 2016’s presidential election night, which Tamblyn spent with Ferrera and comedian Amy Schumer in New York’s Javits Center while several months pregnant. She and her friends wore matching white pantsuits to signal their support of Clinton, “looking like the cast of some new primetime medical drama,” Tamblyn joked.

As the night wore on and it became clear that Clinton was facing a steep challenge to the presidency, “I swigged some more Zantac, and my baby shoved her foot into my ribs, as if to foreshadow the paint that was yet to come,” Tamblyn read. Her line “Katy Perry anxiously chewed on a celery stick” drew some laughs. When Clinton’s director of strategic communications informed Javits Center attendees that Clinton would not be speaking, Tamblyn came to a grim conclusion: “A dark realization swallowed me: I was going to bring a baby into this world. And not just any baby: a girl.” Tamblyn recalled imagining if she should give her baby away to Canadians or Swedes.

At a subway station the following day, Tamblyn read, she began experiencing pain and shortness of breath, which caused her collapse on the stairs. She recalled a “homeless man” saying, “Oh shit, it’s going down!” and offering to cut her umbilical cord with beard scissors if she went into labor. Ultimately, Tamblyn learned she was just having a panic attack.

“’How can I keep her safe?’” Tamblyn recalled asking her doctor on a visit about the attack.

“You can’t, but you can keep her close,” her doctor responded, before suggesting that she listen to a one-minute recording every day to remind her of the tenacity of love. Tamblyn ended her set by playing the recording for the audience: a one-minute record of her baby’s heartbeat.

The 2018 Vulture Fest in Los Angeles, which this year features speakers including the Dirty John cast, Constance Wu, Nick Kroll, Fred Armisen and others, concluded Sunday.

Trump On Brink Of Forcing Migrants To Undergo MAJOR New Screening – Dems WON’T Be Happy!

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Reuters

President Donald Trump’s administration is considering giving U.S. troops on the border with Mexico the authority to carry out medical screening of migrants, U.S. officials told Reuters on Tuesday.

The proposal, which is still in draft form and is circulating within the administration, would involve the military in screenings for things like illness and injury only if U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency personnel were overwhelmed and unable to do so on their own, the officials said.

The proposal would expand the mission for the Pentagon, which said previously it did not expect its forces to directly interact with migrants.

The Pentagon declined to comment.

U.S. military duties on the border, including stringing up concertina wire and building temporary housing, have been aimed at supporting CBP personnel.

The U.S. officials who spoke to Reuters about the proposal did so on condition of anonymity because Trump has not yet signed off on the idea.

It was unclear if the proposal, if confirmed in the coming days, might prolong the deployment of at least some troops at the border.

The commander of the mission told Reuters last week that the number of troops may have peaked at around 5,800, and he would soon look at whether to begin sending forces home or shifting some to new border positions. [nL2N1XQ0XV]
