CARAVAN – ILLEGALS – THE CONSTITUTION STATES – MICHAEL OBERNDORF WEIGHS IN

Warning! Agent Provocateurs Ahead!

As those who don’t depend on the Ministry of Leftist Propaganda, aka, the “mainstream” media, are aware, a growing army of foreign invaders is moving north through Mexico toward our southern border. The leftist Mexican government, with its plethora of draconian immigration laws, is not only doing nothing to stop them, it is actively supporting, aiding, and abetting them. This is a blatant, albeit slightly indirect, attack upon us, going way beyond its policy of aiding and abetting its own citizens in entering the US illegally. In response, President Trump needs to immediately rescind the recently negotiated trade agreement and consider imposing severe economic sanctions.

In addition, and more importantly, Article lV, Section lV, of the Constitution states,

The United States shall guarantee to every State in the Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion…

Thus, as Commander-in-Chief, sending troops to the border is not just an option, it is a requirement of the Constitution. Repeat: it is a requirement of the Constitution.

Unfortunately, this is not as simple as it sounds. Given that the invading army appears to be organized and paid for by our Enemies Domestic, and that it is clearly timed to coincide with the upcoming midterm elections – another Democrat “October Surprise” – it needs to be looked at from more than just a military/law enforcement point of view. There has been a lot of speculation by all sorts of “pundits” and “experts” as to why this is happening, what is the hoped-for outcome, who will benefit, etc, etc. However, I have yet to hear what, in my never humble opinion, is a highly likely conclusion of this dangerous, and probably tragic farce.

The Setup: Thousands of poor, ignorant, unskilled and unemployed people, along with a large portion of criminals and foreign terrorists mass on the Mexican side of the border. Note that these are the dregs and jetsam of their society; they are definitely, in the eyes of their various governments, expendable. On the American side, troops and law enforcement agents, arraigned against the invaders.

The Trigger: Snipers and gunmen, acting as agent provocateurs open fire on the troops across the border, and, less obviously, on the “migrants”, causing the troops to return fire.

The Result: Hundreds of invaders, and American soldiers and law enforcement agents killed and wounded. The Democrats and the Ministry of Leftist Propaganda, in a preplanned effort to turn voters away from Republicans, go berserk, calling it a premeditated massacre of innocent immigrants on the orders of President Trump and his racist, immigrant-hating supporters, and the Nazi military.

Sound far-fetched, folks?  Wait and see. Watch and learn. Time for President Trump to seriously think outside the box.

THIS HAS GOT TO STOP – BUILD THE WALL

Tens of thousand Hondurans are massing for a million man march through Latin America heading toward the United States. This is intolerable. Among them are rapists, criminals, killers and parole violators; many have tried before but been repelled. They have destroyed their country and are hell bent on destroying ours. They’re not coming here because they fear death, they are coming for their economic well being. They will tear down our country like their brethren have torn down theirs. Honduras is one of the poorest countries in the world.

The conquistadors conquered Honduras early on in the fifth century. It was Christopher Columbus and later on his brother Bartholomew who pilfered the Mayan. It was Herman Cortes who finished the job forcing the Maya capitulated. During colonization the majority of Honduras’ indigenous population was killed or died of disease resulting in a more homogenous indigenous population compared to other colonies.

The World Bank categorizes Honduras as a low middle-income nation. The nation’s per capita income sits at around 600 US dollars making it one of the lowest in North America.

In 2010, 50% of the population were still living below the poverty line. By 2016 more than 66% was living below the poverty line. Estimates put unemployment at about 27.9%, which is more than 1.2 million Hondurans.

The proportion of the population below the age of 15 in 2010 was 36.8%, 58.9% were between 15 and 65 years old, and 4.3% were 65 years old or older.

Since 1975, emigration from Honduras has accelerated as economic migrants and political refugees sought a better life elsewhere. A majority of expatriate Hondurans live in the United States. A 2012 US State Department estimate suggested that between 800,000 and one million Hondurans lived in the United States at that time, nearly 15% of the Honduran population. The large uncertainty about numbers is because numerous Hondurans criminals having broke into our country and live in the United States without a visa. In the 2010 census in the United States, 617,392 residents identified as Hondurans, up from 217,569 in 2000.

 

THE “KILLAS” MEXICO-COLUMBIA-VENEZUELA-BRAZIL – STREETS FILLED WITH BLOOD

They live by the gun and die by the gun. The allowing of ruthless individuals from South American countries to illegally enter our country is an insult to the every day American who goes about his/her business in a peaceful manner. The only way to stop the “killas” from entering the USA is a strong wall at our southern border. “So let it be written, so let it be done.”

Latin America has suffered more than 2,500,000 murders since the start of this century and is facing an acute public security crisis that demands urgent and innovative solutions, a new report warns. Latin America suffers 33% of the world’s homicides despite having only 8% of its population. One-quarter of all global homicides are concentrated in four countries – Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela.

Nearly one in every four murders around the world takes place in just four countries: Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico and Colombia. Last year, a record 63,808 people were murdered in Brazil. Mexico also set a record at 31,174, with murders so far this year up another 20%.

The 2016 tally in China, according to the U.N.: 8,634. For the entire European Union: 5,351. The United States: 17,250.

In recent years, growing numbers of families from Central America, including women and children, have fled to the U.S. because of horrific violence. Gangs such as MS-13 and Barrio 18 enforce a reign of terror, dictating even where people can go to school or get medical care. El Salvador’s murder rate of 83 per 100,000 people in 2016—the world’s highest—was nearly 17 times that of the U.S.

ACAPULCO, Mexico—It was the beginning of just another day in one of the world’s most murderous places.

Cristian Sabino was sitting on a plastic chair by this beach resort’s central market when a gunman walked up and shot him five times. As the 22-year-old dropped to the ground, the assailant fired a final bullet to the head and walked away. Six more people would be killed that day in Acapulco, including a cabdriver who was hacked to pieces. Death is so much part of the landscape that once police cordoned off the area around Mr. Sabino’s body, some patrons at a nearby rotisserie chicken restaurant stayed to finish their meals.

Acapulco’s days as a tourist resort with a touch of Hollywood glamour seem long ago. In a city of 800,000, 953 people were violently killed last year, more than in Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Portugal and the Netherlands put together.

The only thriving businesses around here are funeral homes,” says Laura Caballero, the head of a shopkeeper association. She closed her eight shops along the city’s main beachfront avenue three years ago due to monthly extortion demands that reached $800 per store. She says several fellow shopkeepers who refused to pay were killed.

It’s not just Mexico. There is a murder crisis across much of Latin America and the Caribbean, which today is the world’s most violent region. Every day, more than 400 people are murdered there, a yearly tally of about 145,000 dead.

Between 2000 and 2017, roughly 2.5 million people were murdered in Latin America and the Caribbean, as if Chicago were wiped out. That compares with about 900,000 killed in the armed conflicts of Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan combined, according to U.N. figures and estimates by groups like Iraq Body Count. During that same period, all the world’s terrorist attacks killed 243,000 people, according to the University of Maryland’s Global Terrorism Database.

“Large swaths of Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico and Venezuela are experiencing a war in all but name,” says Robert Muggah, head of the Igarapé Institute.

In Acapulco, what once saw sleek yachts cruise into their dockside births, now sees dead bodies float up on shore, but no tourists are walking by. But don’t let any of this fool you. The cause of all this anarchy is due to criminal minded politicians who have failed to harness in the “killa machine.”

WE NEED A WALL MORE THAN EVER”. BUILD THAT WALL PRESIDENT TRUMP, WE WANT WHAT HAPPENS IN LATIN AMERICA TO STAY THERE. CHICAGO, BALTIMORE AND SAINT LOUIS ARE ENOUGH.

HILLARY’S GOOD FRIEND FROM NICARAGUA, DANIEL ORTEGA, GIVES HIS KILLING MACHINE FREE REIGN

Our memory has been jolted once again by a communist commando named Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua; several years ago when he, a Sandanista rebel, came out of the jungle and agree to a peace treaty, eventually winning the presidency of this Central American Country.  Ortega was a commander of the Sandinista uprising that swept to power in 1979, toppling the Somoza family dictatorship that had long ruled with U.S. backing. Ortega, once a mustachioed idol of the international left, led the country from 1979 to 1990, when he lost a reelection bid. Ortega modified his Marxist political stance, reached out to business leaders and Washington, and was again elected president in 2006. He is now serving his third consecutive term. Ortega won in a landslide election in 2016 amid an opposition boycott and allegations of fraud that the government denied.

More than three months of political turmoil, demonstrations, looting and street battles have convulsed the Central American nation of Nicaragua.

President Daniel Ortega, the leader of the leftist Sandinista revolution who has long dominated the country’s political scene, has rejected opposition demands that he step down as leader of this country of 6 million.

Critics say Ortega, 72, has become an autocratic leaderwho has lost touch with the people and is intent on imposing a family dynasty in Nicaragua. His wife serves as vice president and other family members hold various key business and media posts. The opposition charges that Ortega has throttled dissenting voices, overseen mass repression in recent months, consolidated power in the legislative and judicial branches, and pushed for an end to presidential term limits that allowed him to run successfully for a third five-year term in 2016. Detractors say the one-time leftist icon has become a septuagenarian mirror-image of former dictator Anastasio Somoza, overthrown by Ortega and other Sandinista revolutionaries in 1979.

The U.S. administration of President Reagan viewed the emergence of the left-wing Sandinista government in Managua as a threat to Washington’s regional interests during the Cold War. U.S.-backed forces known as Contras fought the Sandinista government during much of the 1980s, resulting in more than 30,000 deaths. Reagan lauded the Contras as “freedom fighters,” despite allegations linking the CIA-backed forces to human rights abuses and drug trafficking.

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad and Tobago — President Obama endured a 50-minute diatribe from socialist Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega that lashed out at a century of what he called terroristic U.S. aggression in Central America and included a rambling denunciation of the U.S.-imposed isolation of Cuba’s Communist government.

Obama sat mostly unmoved during the speech but at times jotted notes. The speech was part of the opening ceremonies at the fifth Summit of the Americas here.

Later, at a photo opportunity with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Obama held his tongue when asked what he thought about Ortega’s speech.

“It was 50 minutes long. That’s what I thought.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ignored two questions about Ortega’s speech, instead offering lengthy praise of a cultural performance of dance and song opening the summit.

“I thought the cultural performance was fascinating,” Clinton said. Asked again about the Ortega speech, Clinton said: “To have those first class Caribbean entertainers on all on one stage and to see how much was done in such a small amount of space, I was overwhelmed.”

A senior administration official declined to criticize Ortega, saying the president wanted to focus on the future.

A pro-government mob shoved, punched and scratched at Cardinal Leopoldo Brenes and other Catholic leaders as they tried to enter the Basilica San Sebastian. “Murderers!” people shouted. An auxiliary bishop was slashed on the arm with some sort of sharp object.

Student protesters say Nicaraguan forces “shooting to kill”

“There are sharpshooters located in different parts of the city. We ask the citizens to take shelter in their homes.” “We are being attacked by the National Police and paramilitaries armed with AK-47s and machine guns in our indigenous neighborhood of Monimbo,” said Alvaro Gomez, a resident. “We are resisting with homemade bombs and stones.”

Monimbo has been a center of resistance against the government of President Daniel Ortega since a wave of protests began April 18 over a since-aborted pension reform plan.  Since then, violence has claimed over 270 lives, most of them civilians, according to CENIDH.

Clinton’s track record in Latin America includes support for the 2009 coup in Honduras, intervention in Haiti, and free trade and militarization policies.

Latin America received scarce attention through the Democratic nomination race. But Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy track record — widely heralded as vital to securing her spot as the patry’s candidate given her experience — in the region is a telling sign of not only the disconnect between her promises and her policies in practice, but also of her hawkish approach to the countries south of the U.S. border.

OPINION:
Clinton and Wall Street’s Neoliberal War on Latin America

As historian Greg Grandin argued about Clinton’s foreign policy for Latin America in an article in The Nation, the impacts of her policies of ramping up free trade, border militarization, and the war on drugs have played a part in worsening insecurity and human rights conditions in several countries. “Beyond any one country or policy, these policies fed off of each other,” Grandin wrote, noting links between privatization, displacement, and violence.

As Clinton is set to make her presumptive nomination official at the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia from July 25 to 28, teleSUR recaps how her foreign policy as Secretary of State had an impact on Latin America.

Backing Coup and Death Squads in Honduras

Hillary Clinton’s diplomatic role as then-Secretary of State in helping to secure the 2009 coup in Honduras has become well-known after the release of email transcripts and her 2014 book Hard Choices solidified the evidence.

In her autobiography “Hard Choices,” Clinton admits that she used her power to bring pro-U.S. “stability” to Central America, even if it meant doing away with democracy.

“We strategized on a plan to restore order in Honduras and ensure that free and fair elections could be held quickly and legitimately, which would render the question of Zelaya moot,” Clinton wrote. Those “free and fair” elections involved a media blackout, targeted assassinations of anti-coup leaders, and a generalized and grave deterioration of human rights ahead of the polls. No international institutions monitored the elections.

ANALYSIS:
Do Feminists Support Coups? Honduran Women on Hillary Clinton

Clinton’s actions toward the Central American country and the United States’ ongoing support of corrupt Honduran security forces — accused of operating death squads — shot into the spotlight again with the recent murder of well-known Honduran Indigenous leader Berta Caceres. The assassination, along with dozens of similar killings in recent years, epitomizes Honduras’ deadly criminalization of political dissenters fighting against the neoliberal policies and intense militarization rolled out in the wake of the coup.

Clinton has painted herself as a champion of women’s right, but feminists in Honduras have a starkly different view of how her policies affect women. In an interview in Buenos Aires over a year before her murder, Berta Caceres specifically singled out Clinton for her hand in the coup, arguing that it highlighted the extent of North American “meddling” in Honduras and support for the ongoing crisis.

What’s more, Clinton’s stance on Honduras hasn’t changed. Although her role in Honduras did not come up in Democratic debates with rival Bernie Sanders, in an interview with the editorial board of the New York Daily News, she defended her support for the coup and advocated a new “Plan Colombia for Central America.” Plan Colombia, a counternarcotics and counterinsurgency military aid package launched in 2000 by then-President Bill Clinton, is widely considered by human rights advocates to have been a disaster that spurred massacres, death squads, and exacerbated the civil war.

 

Seven years ago, in the middle of the night, soldiers burst into the bedroom of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya. Still in his pajamas, the president was forced at gunpoint onto a waiting jet and flown to exile.

Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was among many officials around the world who condemned the ouster of the democratically elected leader as a coup. She called for “the full restoration of democratic order in Honduras.”

FLIP FLOP: Last month, the Democratic presidential front-runner appeared to hedge her position. She suggested that the Honduran soldiers had acted legally in their late-night raid because they were carrying out orders from the country’s supreme court.

“The national legislature in Honduras and the national judiciary actually followed the law in removing President Zelaya,” Clinton said in response to a question in an interview with the New York Daily News editorial board before the New York primary.

“Now, I didn’t like the way it looked or the way they did it, but they had a very strong argument that they had followed the constitution and the legal precedence,” she added.

CRIMINALS ATTACKING THE BORDER WILL BE MET WITH FORCE

Criminals shall be warned that testing our will has consequences; Trump must exercise the power he has and protect the citizens of the United States with Brut Force. Be it cutting them down on the ground or to take to the air it must be said and done. Either way this show of force is necessary, not for intimidation, but for our right to keep out the the trash coming to our the Homeland.

Trump says the military will secure the southern border until wall can be built!

We don’t have laws, we have catch-and-release,” he said. “You catch and then you immediately release and people come back years later for a court case, except they virtually never come back.”

Trump did not offer specifics, but the move appears to be at least partly motivated by a caravan of over 1,000 Central American migrants heading toward the U.S. border. Buzzfeed, which first reported on the caravan, said that Mexican officials had not yet attempted to stop the flow.

Reports of the caravan angered Trump, who has sent out a number of tweets threatening to end the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and to cut foreign aid to countries such as Honduras, from where many of the migrants originate.

Brandon Judd, President of the National Border Patrol Council, said on Fox News Radio’s “The Todd Starnes Show” that it gives Border Patrol “certainty of apprehension.”

“The criminal smugglers, this is a multibillion dollar industry. They smuggle humans, they smuggle drugs,” he said. “This criminal enterprise, if we arrest the majority of people that cross the border illegally, we put a dent into their criminal enterprise, and if you put a dent into their criminal enterprise, then you can possibly stop them.”
