GOP Joins Effort To Equip Border Patrol With Body Cameras

Published

on

Two House Republicans from border states have begun to push appropriators to drop millions of dollars into a 2020 funding bill to make sure that Border Patrol agents are equipped with body cameras.

Arizona Reps. Debbie Lesko and David Schweikert penned a letter to the leading Democrats and Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee and Subcommittee on Homeland Security, asking for an extra $21 million to be included in the chamber’s fiscal 2020 funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“These funds will allow CBP to acquire body-worn cameras and deploy the exact same technology already used by our nations [sic] local law enforcement. The body-worn camera equipment is desperately needed to improve officer safety and transparency,” wrote Schweikert and Lesko, the latter of whom is ranking member on the House Homeland Security Committee’s Subcommittee on Transportation and Maritime Security.

The new urging comes less than two weeks after Arizona Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema asked her Senate colleagues to include the same block of funding for body cameras on federal law enforcement at the border.

In the Oct. 16 letter, Sinema described how law enforcement organizations across the country had employed the new technology, but the 60,000-person U.S. Customs and Border Protection within the Department of Homeland Security has not followed suit despite years of debate and internal research.

“Nationally, almost 300,000 state and local law enforcement officers have embraced the use of body-worn cameras, and more than 60 percent of all police departments nationwide have in-car cameras,” Sinema wrote in a letter obtained by the Washington Examiner. The Democrat-controlled House in June included $21 million for body cameras in the 2020 DHS appropriations bill.

CBP was sent an email request asking whether or not it wants to actually see this measure passed, but no answer was given. Earlier in October, the agency released a formal Request For Information for “Body Worn Cameras in Support of Incident-Driven Video Recording Systems,” which seems to indicate that it is seeking out a contractor should the funding be passed by the Senate.

As of now, neither CBP nor the White House have publicly approved of the measure.

Infamous ‘Tic Tac’ UFO Spotted Clear Across The Atlantic

And just days ahead of the Pentagon’s big disclosure.

Published

on

The US government, in an unprecedented move, is set to release a treasure trove of previously-classified data to Congress and the public at the end of the month, all regarding one of the most mysterious phenomenon in the world:  UFO’s. This disclosure comes after the military, somewhat surprisingly, began divulging the fact that they had been in pursuit of, and had video of, a number of incidents that seemed to defy both logic and physics.  The most famous of the incidents is known colloquially as the “Nimitz Tic Tac” event, and is perhaps the most well-documented and credible UFO sightings of all time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXmQHwmNa_4 Now, just a few days before the Pentagon drops their much-anticipated report, an eerily similar incident is being reported thousands of miles away from the original sighting. The UFO resembling a “white Tic Tac” spotted in 2004 by Former U.S. Navy pilot Cmdr. David Fravor while on duty at the USS Nimitz is back – but this time it’s floating over England. Pictures of the notorious UFO were snapped by Lucy Jane Castle, from Hinckley in south-west Leicestershire, who managed to grab a snap of the unexplained object and posted it on a UFO hunter’s Facebook page, which was found by the Daily Star. “It was hovering for a while and within a blink of an eye it had gone,” Castle said. “Never seen anything like this before in that shape… Quickly took a picture while it was very still and within a blink of an eye it disappeared.” The photo wasn’t terribly convincing, however. https://twitter.com/SusanFensten/status/1406359808257765380?s=20 The Pentagon’s UFO report is expected to hit the headlines around June 29th.

Swing State Getting Serious, Dumping 100K Off of Voter Rolls

This is the first such cleanup in YEARS.

Published

on

Over the course of the next several years, America is going to be taking a good hard look at how she handles elections, and things are likely to get somewhat ugly in the process. That’s because we’ve allowed the false dichotomy of the two-party system to stake claims to how we vote.  On the left, a free-for-all.  On the right, a far more serious application of election laws that could be commandeered by ne’er-do-wells looking to massage the electoral results. So, as we head to the polls in 2022 and 2024, we will do so under the auspices of angst, almost undoubtedly, after having seen a great deal of fussing and fudging of the system itself. In Georgia, a massive cleanup of the voter rolls are now underway, for example. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger intends to remove 101,789 “obsolete and outdated” voter files from the state’s voter registration rolls, his office announced. “Making sure Georgia’s voter rolls are up to date is key to ensuring the integrity of our elections,” Raffensperger said in a statement. “That is why I fought and beat Stacey Abrams in court in 2019 to remove nearly 300,000 obsolete voter files before the November election, and will do so again this year. Bottom line, there is no legitimate reason to keep ineligible voters on the rolls.” The more than 100,000 voter files set to be removed include 67,286 voter files linked to a National Change of Address form submitted to the U.S. Postal Service; 34,227 voter files that had election mail returned to sender; and nearly 300 that had no contact with elections official for two general elections. This is the first serious sanitation attempt since 2019, and has already seen over 18,000 dead Georgians removed from the rolls.
