Despite President Trump’s ongoing efforts, our southern border is still not secure. Illegal aliens are still streaming across the border at various points including ranch spreads in a number of states. I contend this is one of our greatest national security threats.
Arizona rancher Jim Chilton’s 50,000-acre spread along the US-Mexico border is under siege and has been for a very long time now. It is now allegedly ground zero for human smugglers, drug cartel members, and illegal immigrants, and he has videos to prove it.
Chilton is no newcomer to ranching. He’s a hardened and tough fifth-generation cattleman. At 79-years-old, Chilton has been warning the government forever about the dangers of leaving the border open or just securing it with a barbed wire fence. He needed to make a point, so he put up surveillance cameras throughout his property to document the comings and goings of trespassers from south of the border.
I watched the 25-minute video below of a never-ending stream of illegal aliens crossing the border via Chilton’s land. Many of the illegal aliens are wearing military garb. That actually shocked me and it’s not good, to say the least.
From The Daily Caller:
“Chilton shared hours of video footage with Daily Caller News Foundation reporters, who are in Arizona to document life and crime in the southwest borderlands. Tim Foley, the founder of Arizona Border Recon, also shared his group’s surveillance footage with TheDCNF.
“The surveillance videos, which are mostly from 2018 but also date back to 2016, show an unrelenting stream of alleged cartel scouts, drug mules and human smugglers — known as coyotes — using secret trails to work their way into the interior of the state. Many of the trespassers tote long guns and sport military-style camouflage, posing a threat Chilton knows from firsthand experience.
“A U.S. Border Patrol agent was shot by smugglers in a remote section of Chilton’s ranch in June, according to The Washington Times. It was the latest in a long line of violent incidents that prove border security is not a priority for the government, according to Chilton, who is a prominent supporter of President Donald Trump’s efforts to build a border wall.”
If this rancher is adamant about building Trump’s wall, he has good reason to be. After seeing this video, I don’t know how anyone wouldn’t come to the same conclusion as this rancher. The threat is real and severe and has to be dealt with.
Some of the people captured trespassing on the property by video were carrying large backpacks and supplies, while others carried guns and guided horses. A US Border Patrol agent was wounded on Chilton’s property back in June when he was shot while canvassing the area.
Chilton said the agent was struck in the leg and the hand, but several bullets also struck his protective vest. “Without it, he probably would not be with us today,” Chilton told the Associated Press. I have no doubt that is true.
The Washington Times had this to say:
“President Trump needs to complete the wall and fill the 25-mile gap, and move the Border Patrol to the international boundary rather than be located 80 miles from the boundary,” Mr. Chilton told The Washington Times by telephone.
“CBP officials declined to comment on the gap in a wall along that part of the border.
“The shooting took place about 10 miles north of the border in exceptionally rough terrain. The closest town is Arivaca.
“Brandon Judd, a Border Patrol agent and president of the National Border Patrol Council, said the area “is one of our most dangerous stretches on the border,” and it cries out for Mr. Trump’s wall.
“If we would have had walls in this location, this shooting would have never taken place,” he said.
“He also said CBP and the Border Patrol missed a chance last year to gain lasting leverage in the fight against smuggling and illegal immigration, pointing to the major drop in numbers during President Trump’s first months in office.
“President Trump single-handedly and with no help dropped illegal immigration to 45-year lows. We had the momentum on our side. It was expected that new policies and new operations would be put in place to ensure that we continued in the direction the president gave us,” he said.
“Unfortunately, our agency is still run by the Obama holdovers that gave us the failed open-border policies and operations of the past. Until serious changes are made, we will not be able to secure the border with those that refused to embrace the president’s vision on border security,” Mr. Judd said.”
The rancher said his property is separated from Mexico by a four-strand wire fence. That’s almost no protection at all. “We have drug runners coming through our ranch and this has become a very dangerous situation,” Chilton said.
How would you like to live on that border? I can’t imagine how those ranchers sleep at night or how tense they must be every day knowing they could have a deadly encounter or what they might find in the wake of these invaders. It’s like going to war every day with no end in sight.
Chilton says with the lack of a serious barrier, combined with the Border Patrol’s enforcement decisions, it has effectively ceded miles of US territory to the Sinaloa cartel, which has put scouts on his hilltops and blazed smuggling trails across his land. I wonder how many dead bodies and rape victims have been found on his ranch. SMH.
After Kavanaugh Accuser’s Latest Demand, Trump Puts An End To The Charade
The woman who is accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of an alleged sexual assault from 36 years ago is now saying the FBI should investigate the incident before senators hold a hearing on the allegations.
In a letter sent to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa, and obtained by CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys is now making the argument that “a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions.”
Here is more on this via CNN:
“Dr. Ford’s testimony would reflect her personal knowledge and memory of events,” Grassley said. “Nothing the FBI or any other investigator does would have any bearing on what Dr. Ford tells the committee, so there is no reason for any further delay.”
A Justice Department spokesperson said the FBI had forwarded the initial letter from Sen. Dianne Feinstein on September 12 to the White House counsel’s office in accordance with guidelines for conducting background checks.
The spokesperson noted that the allegation “does not involve any potential federal crime,” and said if the FBI becomes aware of new information that raises suitability questions about a nominee or appointee, the agency will inform the White House, which is an existing agreement.
According to the spokesperson, the FBI “does not make any judgment about the credibility or significance of any allegation.”
The letter comes after a day of uncertainty about whether the hearing scheduled for Monday would even take place, as Republicans continued to emphasize their repeated efforts to reach out to Ford.
Last week, news surrounding a private letter that had been sent to Feinstein, Democrat of California, raised potential questions about Kavanaugh’s nomination. Feinstein later announced she had given the letter to the FBI. On Sunday, The Washington Post published a story that detailed Ford’s personal account of an incident that Ford said took place when she and Kavanaugh were both in high school.
Ford alleges that while at a party, Kavanaugh pushed her into a bedroom along with his former classmate Mark Judge, and attempted to remove her clothes. She also alleges that Kavanaugh put her hand over her mouth when she attempted to scream. Kavanaugh has denied the incident, and he and Judge both deny being at the party in question.
“This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone. Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday,” Kavanaugh said in a statement. “I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity.”
The public accusation led Grassley on Monday to announce that the committee would convene next Monday to give both Kavanaugh and Ford the opportunity to publicly testify, as both had indicated a willingness to do so.
But as of Tuesday afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Republicans had yet to hear from Ford or her lawyer regarding their request for her to testify.
“What we’re saying is there should be an investigation because that’s the right thing to do,” Banks said.
“She is prepared to cooperate with the committee and with any law enforcement investigation,” she added.
Democrats have pushed back on the hearing. All 10 Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee sent a letter on Tuesday to FBI Director Christopher Wray and White House counsel Don McGahn arguing that the FBI should conduct an investigation prior to a hearing.
“The Committee should have the completed report before any hearing occurs and we ask that you take immediate steps to make sure that we have the FBI’s report before we proceed,” the senators wrote.
Feinstein said in a statement she supported Ford’s proposal.
“We should honor Dr. Blasey Ford’s wishes and delay this hearing. A proper investigation must be completed, witnesses interviewed, evidence reviewed and all sides spoken to. Only then should the chairman set a hearing date,” Feinstein said in a news release.
“I hope that each and every one of us will immediately denounce the horrific treatment of Dr. Blasey Ford. That this brave woman is receiving death threats and has been forced to flee with her family is appalling and heartbreaking. This abuse must stop. We’re better than this.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, also supported Ford’s proposal.
“Dr. Ford’s call for the FBI to investigate also demonstrates her confidence that when all the facts are examined by an impartial investigation, her account will be further corroborated and confirmed,” Schumer said in a statement. “Senate Republicans and the White House should drop their inexplicable opposition to an FBI investigation, allow all the facts to come out, and then proceed with a fair process in the Senate. Dr. Ford’s life has already been badly disrupted by death threats and other intimidation. She deserves to be treated with respect and fairness by the Senate.”
However, Sen. Orrin Hatch, a Utah Republican, countered Ford’s proposal on Twitter Tuesday night, arguing, “The FBI does not do investigations like this.”
The letter goes on trying to make the argument that although she has received a “stunning amount” of support from her community she has also been the target of death threats and has been forced to vacate her home because of this.
But now The Right Scoop is reporting that President Trump has had enough of this left wing partisan charade.
The President made it very clear he thinks that all this proves is that Ford doesn’t want to testify. She knows the FBI has passed on it since it isn’t even in their jurisdiction and any investigation isn’t going to happen anytime soon. He added that he feels this is all a way for her to try and save face without this going any further.
Trump ended his statement by adding, “So let’s just cancel everything and vote already. This farce has gone long enough.”
The left is now trying to involve their Obama weaponized FBI in a case that they have to jurisdiction over. Whatever alleged happened 36 years ago wasn’t a federal crime, and no reason to involve the FBI. The President is right, all this is is just a way to have an excuse to not testify because nothing ever happened and she wants to save face. Too late Ford!
Trump Announces His ‘Crowning Achievement,’ Sets FBI Swamp On Fire
As the sheer depths of corruption contained within the ranks of the FBI continues to be revealed, President Donald Trump stated in a recent interview that he believes that transparency is necessary to reveal to the American people that the Russia collusion case is based on a hoax. By ordering the release of classified documents, President Trump plans to expose this significant corruption for all to see in what could become one of the “crowning achievements” of his presidency.
In a 45-minute interview with Hill.TV, President Trump answered a series of wide-ranging questions from the Oval Office, stating – “What we’ve done is a great service to the country, really. I hope to be able to call this, along with tax cuts and regulation and all the things I’ve done … in it is own way this might be the most important thing because this was corrupt.”
He also expressed his regret that he did not fire former FBI Director James Comey immediately upon ascending the presidency in January 2017, instead of waiting until May 2017.
This is a confirmation of the account given earlier the same day by Trump attorney, Rudy Giuliani, stating President Trump was highly dismayed in 2016 in regards to the way Comey chose to handle the investigation into the Hillary Clinton email investigation. As a result of that, discussions on firing Comey began well prior to President Trump moving into the Oval Office.
President Trump states – “If I did one mistake with Comey, I should have fired him before I got here. I should have fired him the day I won the primaries. I should have fired him right after the convention, say I don’t want that guy. Or at least fired him the first day on the job. … I would have been better off firing him or putting out a statement that I don’t want him there when I get there.”
The Hill reports of the exclusive interview with Hill.TV – “Trump has offered different reasons in the past for his firing of the FBI chief, blaming Comey’s handling of the Clinton case but also linking it to Comey’s actions in the Russia investigation.
The president also called into question the FBI’s handling of the Russia investigation, again criticizing it for surveilling his campaign.
He criticizing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court’s approval of the warrant that authorized surveillance of Carter Page, a low-level Trump campaign aide, toward the end of the 2016 presidential race, suggesting the FBI misled the court.
“They know this is one of the great scandals in the history of our country because basically what they did is, they used Carter Page, who nobody even knew, who I feel very badly for, I think he’s been treated very badly. They used Carter Page as a foil in order to surveil a candidate for the presidency of the United States.”
As for the judges on the secret intelligence court: “It looks to me, just based on your reporting, that they have been misled,” the president said, citing a series of columns in The Hill identifying shortcomings in the FBI investigation. “I mean I don’t think we have to go much further than to say that they’ve been misled.”
“One of the things I’m disappointed in is that the judges in FISA didn’t, don’t seem to have done anything about it. I’m very disappointed in that Now, I may be wrong because, maybe as we sit here and talk, maybe they’re well into it. We just don’t know that because I purposely have not chosen to get involved,” Trump said.
The president spared no words in criticizing Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, lawyer Lisa Page and other FBI officials who started the probe. He recited specific text messages Page and Strzok traded while having an affair and investigating his campaign, arguing the texts showed they condoned leaks and conducted a bogus probe.
Those texts are to be released as a result of Trump’s announcement on Monday.”
President Trump cited a text from a conversation between Strzok and Page in which the two discuss obtaining McCabe’s approval to expand the Russian collusion investigation right after Comey was fired, stating – “It’s a hoax, beyond a witch hunt. Comey was a bad guy. He gets fired. They only have Andy left because they know they’re doing wrong,” as he described the depths of corruption that are readily apparent to anyone looking.
The FBI repeatedly leaked information to mainstream media outlets in an effort to create a false narrative against him in an effort to destroy his presidency if he won as a sort of “insurance policy,” stating – “Number one, how illegal is it? And number two, how low is it?”
He added – “What we have now is an insurance policy. But it has been totally discredited, even Democrats agree that it has been discredited. They are not going to admit to it, but it has been totally discredited. I think, frankly, more so by text than by documents.”
When asked what he hoped to accomplish by declassifying these documents, President Trump responded with – “All I want to do is be transparent. I hope to be able put this up as one of my crowning achievements that I was able to … expose something that is truly a cancer in our country.”
