My Mom Has to Have a Gun to Water Her Flowers: Watch Tucker's Interview with Border Resident

Western Journal

Published

on

For the residents of Uvalde, Texas, a town about 60 miles from the southwest border, life has changed dramatically since President Joe Biden took office.

Biden’s immediate reversal of the Trump administration’s effective immigration policies has spurred the invasion of close to a million illegal immigrants, which has completely overwhelmed the system and turned the lives of U.S. citizens living in border towns into a living hell.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson visited Uvalde and spoke to several property owners about their new normal.

Landowner Weston Robertson told Carlson, “I carry a firearm 24 hours a day around here all the time. Even my mother, who is elderly, will not even leave the house to go outside to water flowers without her personally carrying a firearm.”

Fearing retaliation from the Mexican cartels which she said are operating in Uvalde, one woman spoke to Carlson on the condition of anonymity.

“I cannot even go from my house to my barn or to my chicken coop or anywhere without carrying a gun,” the woman said. “I don’t even leave my house without it.”

“I came out one day, had four men running directly at my house where one tried to break into our house while I was here. … We just don’t have as many rights as even the illegals do. I will defend my house if I had to.”

“Our crime’s up. Our car break-ins are up. Our house burglaries are up,” Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin said.

Earlier this week, Axios reported that 50,000 migrants had been released into the country without a court date. These individuals were told to contact an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office once they reach their final destination. According to the report, only 13 percent of them have done so.

Carlson reported an immigration official told members of his staff that this has become standard operating procedure.



On Tuesday, the White House released a fact sheet in which it said, “We will always be a nation of borders, and we will enforce our immigration laws in a way that is fair and just. We will continue to work to fortify an orderly immigration system.”

Conditions at and near the border show the situation is anything but orderly.

On Wednesday, Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar, who represents a border district that includes the town of La Joya, Texas, told Fox Business News that Customs and Border Patrol “dropped off” illegals at a La Joya charity. If the charity was overwhelmed, CBP would simply drop them off at a hotel in town without alerting town officials.

Making matters worse, most of these migrants were unvaccinated and many were COVID-19 positive.

Cuellar called on the Biden administration to “do a pause.” He also said the administration must show that some illegals are being deported. This, he believes, would serve as a deterrent. Although some migrants have been deported, the congressman said, it’s not being reported so no one is aware of it.

Interestingly, Fox News reported on an incident that occurred at a La Joya Whataburger restaurant on Tuesday.

An individual who had just dined at the restaurant flagged down a city police officer to tell him that a group of visibly sick migrants was seated at a nearby table. The officer went inside to speak to the family, who were coughing and sneezing. They told him “they had tested positive for the coronavirus and had been apprehended by Border Patrol agents several days prior before being released.”

Does the Biden administration treat illegal immigrants better than U.S. citizens?

They said “they were staying at the nearby Texas Inn & Suites. The hotel manager told authorities that the Catholic Charities of The Rio Grande Valley had booked rooms in the hotel to house undocumented immigrants detained by Border Patrol.”

More significantly, this is when South Texas authorities “learned that illegal immigrants who have possibly tested positive for COVID-19 were being released from federal custody to a Catholic charity, which booked hotel rooms for them without notifying local officials,” according to the report.

La Joya police Sgt. Manuel Casas said, “We did not know this. No one told the city of La Joya. No one told the police department that these people were here and no one told us that these people were possibly ill.”

“We have an understanding based on what was told to us that the hotel in totality has already been rented out,” Casas added. “The information we have is that everyone that is staying in that hotel is COVID-19 positive because it’s being rented out for them.”

This is Biden’s America, ladies and gentlemen.

The two most fundamental responsibilities of the federal government are to create and enforce our laws and to defend citizens against external enemies. Clearly, this administration is failing miserably at both.

Its plan to import a new bloc of future Democratic voters has taken priority over their obligations to U.S. citizens.

For now, the residents of South Texas are on the front lines of this crisis and they are bearing the brunt of the government’s dereliction of duty.

However, as more and more migrants move on from Texas into the interior of the country, we will all feel the burden. At the very least, we will feel it financially.

Currently, Texas residents are forced to protect themselves as illegals trespass on their land. Many migrants merely cross through these properties, but others camp out and some try to rob the owners. Imagine an elderly woman finding it necessary to carry a gun to water her garden.

Equally serious are the diseases the migrants bring with them. Yet they’re allowed to dine in our restaurants, stay in our hotels, travel on our buses and airplanes — no photo ID required — and are even given envelopes of cash, all while we foot the bill. Few of them have been vaccinated, and many are COVID positive.

In the meantime, U.S. citizens are shamed and blamed for not taking vaccines that have yet to be fully approved by the FDA and are being told once again to wear masks.

It’s good to be an illegal immigrant in America, isn’t it?

Video: Pilot Dedicates His Last Flight to 13 US Service Members Killed in Afghanistan, Passengers Cheer

Western Journal

Published

on

It was the last mass casualty event during our 20-year war in Afghanistan — 13 U.S. service members killed in a suicide attack at the Kabul airport, along with more than 160 Afghans.

The attack shook the United States and our allies to the core, particularly coming after the chaotic fall of the country to the Taliban.

While there may be no way to sufficiently honor those who paid the ultimate price during the Aug. 26 bombing, an unknown pilot is making the rounds on TikTok and Facebook for his fitting dedication to our heroes.

The video was posted to Facebook by Ryan Fournier, the founder of Students for Trump. However, it appears to have originated on TikTok, where it was uploaded by @roballnic1.

While the details surrounding the video are scanty — where and when it was recorded, who recorded it, who the pilot was — it’s the type of video that would be difficult to fake unless you have a spare Boeing 737 hanging around.

What is clear from the video is that the pilot begins by saying, “We’re heading down to Houston, it should take us two hours and 27 minutes. The weather’s good, weather’s good, the ride should be good.”

As he was saying that, however, he was holding up a tablet with the pictures of some of the 11 Marines, one soldier and one sailor from the Kabul bombing.

“I’ve got six more days left here at Southwest Airlines, I have to retire because I’m 65 years old,” he said to applause.

“I’ll keep flying. And every time I fly now, I want to dedicate our flight and my trip to the 13 senseless losses of soldiers, sailors, Marines,” he continued.

“Men and women. My brother Marines, my sister Marines.”

This elicited a “hoo-rah” from the cabin.

“Everybody, just remember them,” he added. “And I don’t care who you hated or who you liked in the last election. What happened was just wrong.”

This got some assent from the cabin, too. He finished the preflight speech by saying, “We’ll get going. Smiles, everybody. And … remember the 13.”

With that, the pilot got a round of applause.



While the text overlaid on the original TikTok video said this was the pilot’s last flight, there’s no evidence of that in the video or in other reports. Given that he said he had six days left with the company and that “I’ll keep flying,” this seems unlikely.

However, the video also seems equally unlikely to be fakery.

It’s difficult to say that the deaths of 13 American service members in a suicide attack carried out by a branch of the Islamic State group could get lost in the shuffle, per se. However, there was so much senseless tragedy surrounding the fall of Afghanistan and our hasty withdrawal from the country that it was almost an afterthought. The whole affair stunned the nation and the world.

It’s not as if the men and women who were killed in the attack didn’t have their lives celebrated. This was the hometown welcome for Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum in Jackson, Wyoming:

However, it’s acts like these that go viral — and like it or not, social media status is currency these days.

This pilot, whoever he may be, made sure to spend that currency in the best way possible.

We may never know who he was. Rest assured, however, plenty of people will remember what he said.

If you’re going to mark one of your last flights piloting a commercial jet in a profound way, it’s hard to think of how you could do it better than this. Our hats are off to you, sir.

FDA Official Says Feds Need to Shoot Black Americans with Blow Darts Filled with COVID Vaccine: Report

Western Journal

Published

on

A Food and Drug Administration official was caught on tape seemingly suggesting black Americans who are hesitant about the COVID-19 vaccine should be shot with blow darts to get inoculated — while also suggesting some “Amazonians” could “get it done” for them.

This revelation came from Part Two of a Project Veritas exposé about the vaccine that was released this week.



In the footage, a man identified as FDA economist Taylor Lee, spoke to an undercover journalist from the organization, mentioning several times that he was so frustrated with the black community’s reluctance that his solution would be to forcibly administer the shot.

Although he appeared to be speaking tongue-in-cheek, his remarks were disturbing, condescending and culturally insensitive.

Lee suggested using this method that is insulting to black Americans as it is often employed against animals and also takes a dig at some indigenous people in South America known for hunting that way.

“I remember reading about how with COVID [vaccine] trials, they were having an issue recruiting African-American people and it was because of a different medication the government tried to do that was specifically designed to kill African Americans,” Lee pointed out.

When the undercover journalist off-camera suggested he couldn’t blame them for their mistrust after that, Lee replied, “I can’t, but at the same time, like, blow dart,” he concluded. “That’s where we’re going.”

Lee went on to explain that he felt the Johnson & Johnson version of the vaccine would do well for the purpose.

“Like, go to the unvaccinated, and blow it into them — blow dart it into them. That’s where I am at this point,” Lee said.

When the Project Veritas journalist asked him for a broader strategy to get minorities to take the shot, Lee continued with his same bizarre proposal, adding they’d have to “post video campaigns about doing it to the whites first” so they couldn’t be charged with racism.

“We’ll have to hire some Amazonians first because they’ll get it done,” Lee added. The official then doubled down on this angle in what appeared to be footage from another conversation between the undercover journalist and Lee.

“Want to see how fast I get an Amazon rainforest tribe out here?” Lee said, continuing with his insensitive generalizations that are normally taboo in polite society.

While it’s true this is one man’s opinion in what he likely thought was a casual social setting, it does point to a certain mindset from an FDA insider that is as dangerous as it is shocking.

The idea that Lee would suggest force as an appropriate method to achieve universal vaccination isn’t far-fetched considering what’s happening in the world lately.

President Joe Biden warned that his “patience” was “wearing thin” for the unvaccinated when he addressed the nation and announced a sweeping vaccine mandate for millions of Americans.

It’s also no laughing matter considering the frightening authoritarian crackdown that has turned Australia into a police state — and while the country is physically a world away, it seems philosophically adjacent to the kind of mindset an FDA employee is expressing.

It’s disturbing to witness the way Lee so casually speaks about his burning desire to forcibly vaccinate people as an insider at the agency responsible for keeping Americans safe from harmful substances, and even more so as he speaks about black and minority populations.

Project Veritas is doing a service to America by exposing the dark underbelly of these organizations, but it’s difficult to watch knowing that Lee is just one man exposed among the plethora of operatives who think like him still embedded in the deep state.
