POTUS Beefs Up Military Border Response by MASSIVE Numbers

All we can hope for now is peace through preparation.

Trouble is heading this way, and the President is preparing for it in a big way.
Deep in the heart of Mexico, a horde of up to 14,000 Central Americans are on their way to the US border.  When they arrive, many plan to enter our country illegally, defying President Donald Trump in a way that only this sort of thing could.
You see, Trump ran his campaign on strong and stern promises to shore up our southern border with a “big, beautiful wall”…something that the obstructionist democrats have been working overtime to prevent from happening.  When this migrant caravan reaches US soil, it will be the proverbial tip of the spear, piercing that armor of the bombastic Commander in Chief.
At least, that’s what the democrats are hoping for, along with some ugly optics to fill the airwaves with just as Americans head to ballot box next week.
The left may not get their anarchistic dream, however, due to the Donald Trump’s frankly enormous escalation of military and law enforcement presence on the border this week.
U.S. Northern Commander Air Force Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy is tackling his mission to use the military to harden the southern border with gusto. “We know border security is national security,” he told reporters at a news conference yesterday, in which he announced that 800 soldiers from Fort Campbell, Ky., are already en route to Texas. By week’s end they will be joined by thousands more, not just in Texas, but also in Arizona and California. “By the end of this week, we will deploy over 5,200 soldiers to the southwest border. That is just the start of this operation. We’ll continue to adjust the numbers and inform you of those,” O’Shaughnessy said.

THE MISSION: The active-duty troops have two main objectives: Reinforce infrastructure, such as security barriers at 26 designated ports of entry, and help seal gaps in the border between the crossing points where immigrants may try to cross illegally. But the responsibility for border security will remain with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. “Our first level of effort with CBP will be to harden the points of entry and address key gaps in areas around the points of entry,” O’Shaughnessy said. CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan disputed the idea that the deployment of thousands of troops was a political ploy in advance of the midterms elections. “No, this is a law enforcement operation from CBP’s perspective and we partner with DOD all the time to help secure our border,” McAleenan said.

There is still much speculation as to what will actually happen when the caravan reaches the border.

All we can hope for now is peace through preparation.

Enormous Confederate Carving Subject of Renewed Debate

Will Stone Mountain be vanquished by an army of virtue signalers?

Over the course of the last several years, and with a vast acceleration in 2020, municipalities around the nation have been removing, renaming, and re-dedicating a number of Confederate monuments now deemed offensive in the wake of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Not everyone is a fan of the move, however, with opponents often suggesting that this is a revision of history, and that these men were also American soldiers, in a way. Now, one of the largest Confederate monuments in the world, the carving on the side of Stone Mountain in Georgia, is facing renewed calls for removal. Crowds are growing larger at the monthly meetings of the Georgia board considering what to do about the giant carving of Confederacy leaders in Stone Mountain. But officials seem no closer to an answer. The Stone Mountain Memorial Association decided to make a few changes last month, but they weren’t enough to placate people who want the monument removed. A museum exhibit will tell the story of the carving, as well as the site’s ties to the Ku Klux Klan. But having to make those decisions could increase the volume and the pressure on the board, NPR reports. Critics have pointed out that the carving is a modern piece, and not a relic of a bygone era. “Where we go from there?” asked the board’s chairman, the Rev. Abraham Mosley. “I don’t know.” Putting the site in a Georgia context seems like a challenge. None of the three men—Confederate Gens. Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, and Confederacy President Jefferson Davis—was from the area, and no battles were fought there. As a piece of history, it’s not that historic, having been completed in 1972. The monument sits within Stone Mountain Park, an amusement park of sorts, that has lost a number…

Russia Continues Harassment of American Military Just 35 Miles Off US Coast

That’s a little too close for comfort.

When it comes to dealing with Russia, much of the US policy is straightforward, and likely on account of the fact that the Kremlin has been pulling the same, silly stunts for decades now. In fact, it’s getting a little stale. Russia loves to use her military as a nuisance to the United States, posing danger at times, certainly, but most often just being undeniably annoying. This week was no exception. Russia’s defense ministry has announced it sunk an aircraft carrier just 35 miles off the coast of Hawaii in a huge war games exercise that has alarmed the US. At least 20 Russian warships, submarines, and support vessels, flanked by 20 fighter jets, are taking part in the exercises – the biggest since the Cold War. Russia says that they are 300 miles off the coast of Hawaii, yet unconfirmed satellite images from June 19 appear to show them much closer – within 35 miles of the U.S. state. The moves have forced the US military into action. Twice this month – on June 14 and 18 – the U.S. scrambled F-22s from Hawaii in response to Russian bomber flights. Neither time did the bombers enter the U.S. Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) perimeter, and so they were not intercepted. On June 17 the Navy admitted that the USS Carl Vinson and her strike group were operating near Hawaii, without revealing when they had arrived, or why. It has been only a few days since Russian President Vladimir Putin met with US President Joe Biden in Geneva, in a meeting that both men seemed to suggest was a success. This latest Kremlin aggression begs to differ.
