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.

Lindsey Graham Sends Cryptic Tweet to Comey as GOP Prepares Rebuttal

The media, along with the democrats, have been bludgeoning the nation with the “collusion” narrative…but what comes around, goes around.

James Comey

With the Mueller report finished, our nation will soon find herself in the next phase of the “Russiagate” scandal:  Redemption. For nearly two years we have been held hostage not only by the dark cloud of the Mueller investigation itself, but also by the democrats and the mainstream media who have been smothering us with the idea that the President of The United States is some sort of Russian spy. As far as cultural conditioning goes, this won’t be an easy reputation to repudiate, thanks to the endless chyrons and sobbing pundits of the corporately-controlled “infotainment” industry. But, in the halls of Washington DC, the rebuking comes hard and fast. In the case of James Comey, the disgraced former head of the FBI who was intrinsic to the origins of the Mueller investigation, a purposefully vague yet perfectly staged photograph of him staring into some forlorn-looking forest was meant to be his way of subtly discrediting Mueller. https://twitter.com/Comey/status/1109930531389472768 Republican Senator Lindsey Graham had the perfect response: https://twitter.com/LindseyGrahamSC/status/1109984734212513793 Graham is almost certainly referencing the likely possibility in which Comey and other who were integral to this probe getting off the ground could be brought in front of Congress to testify regarding their decisions.

Mad Max Throws Predictable Tantrum Over RussiaGate Nothing Burger

Not one to miss an opportunity for outrageous indignation and the airtime that comes along with it, Maxine Waters has begun to disseminate her own views on the developments.

For nearly two years the nation has waited, and, during that wait, we have been fairly nasty to one another. You see, the democrats decided to go all in on a conspiracy theory first mentioned by failed 2016 candidate Hillary Clinton in which Donald Trump was some sort of “Russia asset”, sent to the White House on orders of Vladimir Putin. We know the rest of the long story:  Robert Mueller spend the next 22 months looking far and wide for proof of this collusion and came up essentially empty.  (And that was after investigating a number of bizarre, out-of-the-Russian-realm leads as well). To say that Mueller was thorough would be a gross understatement. Now, with the democrats overtly disappointed in the summary statement produced by the Attorney General regarding the Mueller Report, they’ve again begun to radicalize en masse. Not one to miss an opportunity for outrageous indignation and the airtime that comes along with it, Maxine Waters has begun to disseminate her own views on the developments…and they are predictably batty.  “This is not the end of anything!” Waters told MSNBC’s Joy Reid as they realized the report was a giant nothing burger for Democrats. “This is the— well, it’s the end of the report and the investigation by Mueller. But those of us who chair these committees have a responsibility to continue with our oversight,” Waters said. “There’s so much that, uh, needs to be, you know, taken a look at at this point,” she claimed,” and so it’s not the end of everything.” Waters joins fellow democratic Congressperson Adam Schiff in continuing to assert that there is still evidence of “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia, despite Robert Mueller specifically stating that this was not the case after 22 months of investigation.
