Mad Dog Heads to Border with Strong Message for Troops

Mattis is “a soldier’s soldier”, and will be a welcome sight for the troops at the border.

The first trickle of immigrants from the massive migrant caravan have begun to turn up at our southern border this week, and the US is sparing no expense in order to maintain law and order during the asylum process.

In addition to the wonderfully capable men and women of the US Border Patrol, the United States has mobilized several thousand military troops to the region in an effort to peacefully and legally maneuver this massive horde to the border.

The caravan itself is thought to be up to 14,000 people strong and, thanks to help from within Mexico, several hundred could be making their way to Texas in a matter of days.  In an effort to bolster the mission and keep our nation secure from illegal crossings, James “Mad Dog” Mattis is heading to the border to speak to the troops.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis will travel to Texas on Wednesday to visit troops currently deployed in support of the Southwest border mission.

Mattis’ trip comes amid a significant active-duty troop presence along the U.S. border with Mexico to deter a caravan of migrants seeking asylum.

And it’s no small showing of force, either.

The Department of Defense estimates that more than 7,000 troops will be positioned in California, Arizona and Texas in support of the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection. In which case, the border mission, will have a larger U.S. military footprint than the combined efforts in Iraq and Syria.

What’s more, President Donald Trump said he was prepared to deploy as many as 15,000 service members to the border, a move that would be on par with the U.S. troop presence in Afghanistan, which remains America’s longest war.

“I’ll visit the border tomorrow,” Mattis told reporters Tuesday before meeting his Qatari counterpart at the Pentagon. “We’ll update you on costs [associated with border mission] as they become known,” he added.

Mattis has long been held in high regard among active and former military members, often being referred to as “a soldier’s soldier”.

His appearance and expertise at the border will certainly be appreciated by the cold and wet troops who have been battling unseasonable weather this past week.

WOKE JOKE: Mag Ripped for Declaring Phrase ‘Invasive Species’ Problematic

The breadth of the American vocabulary is shrinking, and this is a shame that is fully owned by the radical left. 

Published

How far is too far these days?  Are we ever going to hit the bottom of the barrel when it comes to wokeness?  Is there a bottom?

It may only be months before activists start declaring that we rename entire cities on account of some extrapolation in the orbit of their name.  This is heading down a path that leads us to darkness – where the real evil, the really vile ideologies of our nation are so well-hidden that they mutate and grow and fester.  They’ll be so far removed from society that it will appear as though they are on another planet, and they will be plotting and preparing in an effort to shatter the phony, whitewashed facade of society once again. And, because they were allowed to work in secret, there’s no telling what they’re bringing to the fight now.

Yet still, the liberal left is pushing to bury our words and paint a thin veneer of care over our entire vernacular. Their latest campaign is downright laughable.

Left-wing news website Vox published an article this week that claimed it was time to stop demonizing “invasive” species, arguing that the ongoing use of the term divided life on Earth, including people, between native and non-native.

In the Sunday piece, freelance journalist Marina Bolotnikova blamed climate change for the forced migration of certain species, criticized measures taken by some governments to terminate those species, likened their treatment to the experiences of immigrants and suggested the term “invasive” wasn’t appropriate to describe the migrating groups.

“Ecologists expect climate change to create mass alterations in the habitats of these ‘range-shifting’ or ‘climate-tracking’ species, as they’re sometimes called, which will reshuffle ecosystems in ways that are hard to predict. The migrations are critical to species’ ability to survive hotter temperatures,” Bolotnikova wrote, citing instances of dark unicorn snails migrating from Mexico to California as an example.

Then arrived the sheer lunacy:

She later referred to conservationist efforts in North Carolina to prevent coyotes from mating with endangered red wolves as bearing “uncomfortable parallels to Western preoccupations with racial purity.”

“That’s why some scientists look askance at the influence of invasion biology and argue that the field has a baked-in, nativist bias on documenting negative consequences of introduced species and preserving nature as it is,” she wrote.

“What’s more, the very notion of ‘invasion’ draws on a war metaphor, and media narratives about non-native species are remarkably similar to those describing enemy armies or immigrants,” Bolotnikova added before citing a news story that referred to armadillos “besieging” North Carolina as “pests” and “freakish.”

The breadth of the American vocabulary is shrinking, and this is a shame that is fully worn by the radical left.

Ghislaine Maxwell Trial Reveals Donald Trump’s Trips on ‘Lolita Express’

WHOA!

Published

on

For years, nay, decades, rumors have persisted about just what sort of evil empire Jeffrey Epstein was sitting on the throne of.

Sure, there were the widely-accepted truths:  Epstein was plucking underage women from corners of society and grooming them to be sex slaves.  This much is very much undisputed.

Where it gets tricky is his little black book.  You see, Epstein was wildly influential as well, not only for his vast fortune but for the possibility that he had secretly videotaped his well-known clients fornicating with said children.  This sort of kompromat is worth its weight in gold.

And among all these rumors was the plane.

Dubbed the “Lolita Express” for all of the sexually-charged reasons that one could suggest, its flight log read like a who’s who of modern high society.

Now, in the trial of Epstein’s #2 in command, Ghislaine Maxwell, a revelation has arrived about former President Donald Trump.

DONALD Trump, Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton all flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, the paedo’s former pilot told the Ghislaine Maxwell trial.

The two former US Presidents and the Duke of York were mentioned as Maxwell faces six charges of sex trafficking and abuse over her alleged role as Epstein’s “madam”.

And he was sure:

Lawrence Visoski, who is testifying for the prosecution, was quizzed during cross examination about passengers aboard Epstein’s distinctive Gulf Stream plane.

He confirmed Trump, Andrew and Clinton all flew on the jet – along with other big names such as Hollywood stars Kevin Spacey & Chris Tucker, violinist Itzhak Perlman, and US Senators John Glenn & George Mitchell.

And he also told the court he never saw any sexual activity on the flight, or any underage girls without their parents.

Epstein is long known to have courted the rich and famous as he hid in plain sight – including with flights on his plane.

“I certainly remember President Trump, but not many people associated with him,” the pilot told the trial.

While Trump’s acquaintance with Epstein was long known, the fact that this pilot puts him on the “Lolita Express” is what’s noteworthy here.
