Migrant Caravan Turns to Anarchy to Forcefully Enter Mexico

The caravan’s timing and escalation of violence could become an issue in the American midterm elections.

With Donald Trump’s heavy-handed push for border reform still very much on the minds of US citizens, a massive mob of South American migrants are looking to push back against the President.

The tactic of creating massive migrant caravans to challenge the idea of national sovereignty is nothing new.  In fact, this will likely feel like deja vu to a great many Americans who recall a similar incident just months ago.

In the case of their latest attempt to illegally cross into Mexico and, eventually into the US, these migrants have turned chaotic and violent…something that does not bode well for when they reach the border between Mexico and America.

Migrants traveling in a mass caravan burst through a Guatemalan border fence and streamed by the thousands toward Mexican territory on Friday, defying Mexican authorities’ entreaties for an orderly crossing and U.S. President Donald Trump’s threats of retaliation.

On the Mexican side of a border bridge, they were met by a phalanx of police with riot shields. About 50 managed to push their way through before officers unleashed pepper spray and the rest retreated.

The gates were closed again, and police used a loudspeaker to address the masses, saying, “We need you to stop the aggression.”

And it gets worse:

Mexican federal police chief Manelich Castilla, speaking from the border town of Ciudad Hidalgo, told Foro TV that his forces achieved their main objective of preventing a violent breach by the 3,000-plus migrants. In a separate interview with Milenio television, he accused people not part of the caravan of attacking police with firecrackers and rocks.

“It will be under the conditions that have been said since the start,” Castilla said. “Orderly, with established procedures, never through violence or force as a group of people attempted.”

Given the timing of the caravan, whose arrival at the gates of the United States could coincide with a particularly nasty midterm election battle, there are concerns that this sort of violence could plague the border near enough to polling day to make a political impact in America.

President Trump has previously floated the possibility of sending the military to border to maintain order.

Former Trump Chief of Staff Flips, is Cooperating with Jan 6th Committee

Say WHAT?!

Published

on

The work of the January 6th select committee continues to astound and astonish of late, with potential witness after potential witness finding themselves in untenable positions.  Stuck between a rock and a contempt charge.

The latest to reverse course and decide to cooperate is none other than former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who this week signaled his willingness to work with the Democratically-led fishing expedition.

 Mark Meadows, who served as former President Donald Trump’s last chief of staff and was involved in efforts to challenge the 2020 election results, is now cooperating with the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the chairman of the panel, said in a statement that Meadows has been “engaging” with the panel through his lawyer, providing records to the committee “and will soon appear for an initial deposition.”

Meadows was subpoenaed by the committee in late September for records and testimony regarding his and Trump’s activities before and during the Capitol riot.

The news was rather unexpected:

“Mr. Meadows has been engaging with the Select Committee through his attorney. He has produced records to the committee and will soon appear for an initial deposition,” the committee said in a statement Tuesday. “The Select Committee expects all witnesses, including Mr. Meadows, to provide all information requested and that the Select Committee is lawfully entitled to receive. The committee will continue to assess his degree of compliance with our subpoena after the deposition.”

His lawyer initially said Meadows wouldn’t cooperate with the committee because of Trump’s plans to assert executive privilege, an argument dismissed by the committee, whose members will vote this week to hold former DOJ official Jeffrey Clark in contempt of Congress for ignoring the panel’s subpoenas.

“As we have from the beginning, we continue to work with the Select Committee and its staff to see if we can reach an accommodation that does not require Mr. Meadows to waive Executive Privilege or to forfeit the long-standing position that senior White House aides cannot be compelled to testify before Congress,” Meadows’ attorney George Terwilliger said in a statement Tuesday. “We appreciate the Select Committee’s openness to receiving voluntary responses on non-privileged topics.”

The committee has been widely criticized on the right side of the aisle, with many considering their investigation to be nothing more than a re-do of Trump’s second impeachment, this time with a Democratic majority deciding the outcome.

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.
