National Border Patrol Council Endorses Elise Stefanik – She Voted Against Wall Funding

Only problem with the National Border Patrol Council endorsing Stefanik replacing Liz Cheney is that she has voted against building the wall. She co-sponsored an amnesty bill. One would think that a quick look at her voting record would make that clear.  She’s not America First, just so we’re clear.  Last week I posted Stefanik as the Trojan Horse including her less than stellar background. A Paul Ryan protege. I stand by the post below:

ICYMI: PUTTING THE NATION FIRST: STEFANIK VOTES TO BLOCK TRUMP’S NATIONAL EMERGENCY DECLARATION

March 4, 2019 
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – In case you missed it, the Watertown Daily Times’ Sunday editorial focused on Congresswoman Stefanik’s disapproval vote of the President’s national emergency declaration and her independent judgement, regardless of which party occupies the White House.

Putting the nation first: Stefanik votes to block Trump’s national emergency declaration
Watertown Daily Times
March 3, 2019

“Being a loyal member of the GOP on Capitol Hill doesn’t mean you always have to agree with the president.

“U.S. Rep. Elise M. Stefanik, R-Schuylerville, demonstrated that Tuesday by officially disapproving of a recently enacted national emergency. She joined 244 of her colleagues in voting for a resolution to block President Donald Trump’s decision to bypass Congress in constructing a wall on our border with Mexico.

Ms. Stefanik distinguished herself by being the only Republican from New York to support Tuesday’s resolution. This shows her independent judgment and consistency in upholding the principle of limited government.

“There are better ways to secure our border, and Ms. Stefanik has discussed these options. She has shown the value of her leadership in Congress by acting in the nation’s best interest rather than merely toeing a party line.”

STEFANIK SIGNS DACA DISCHARGE PETITION

May 9, 2018 
Press Release

Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) crossed party lines to sign a discharge petition to force a series of floor votes on four DACA, immigration and border security bills. If the petition, led by Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL-26), receives 218 signatures, it will force a vote on H. Res. 774 that Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA-10) introduced in March, to allow Members to debate the issue on the House floor under the “queen of the hill” rule. According to the rule, whichever proposal receives the most votes and meets the mandatory majority-vote threshold would be adopted.

She co-sponsored the Big Tech green card giveaway known as the “Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act” Signed a letter asking Trump to continue importing foreign workers when tens of millions of Americans were unemployed during the pandemic stefanik.house.gov/media-center/p

She also supported the Paris Climate Accords stefanik.house.gov/media-center/p

Here tis believe it or not:

Breitbart:

The National Border Patrol Council is endorsing Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) to replace Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as the new House GOP conference chair, assuming Cheney goes down next week.“

“As President Biden’s policies continue to create the worst surge in illegal immigration in our history, it is more important than ever for our leaders to share a unified message in Congress on the importance of border security,” Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, said in a statement obtained exclusively by Breitbart News ahead of its public release.

Judd adds Stefanik’s “efforts both legislatively and behind the scenes” have helped keep “illegal drugs and dangerous criminals from flooding our communities.” He continues:

Representative Stefanik supports funds to build the wall, technology to augment the Border Patrol’s capabilities, and more resources for the men and women on the front lines. I am truly grateful to say in the strongest possible terms that Elise opposes policies that have been so dangerous for our communities such as sanctuary cities, licenses for illegal immigrants, and public assistance for those who chose to violate our immigration laws (the magnets that draw people and encourage them to cross our borders illegally).

She also opposes amnesty for those whose very first act in coming to the U.S. was to knowingly and willingly cross our borders illegally. Representative Stefanik has been a true border security champion.

Red State does a great round up as well of her anti-Trump platform votes.

Red State:

For instance, she voted against President Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. I suspect the reason was the limiting of the State and Local Tax deduction that places like New York had used to build a massive public workforce while making the rest of us pay for it, but still it was a vote against President Trump on his signature legislation and a vote for the Blue State plutocracy.

While voting to keep the progeny of New York politicians fully employed, she co-sponsored the amnesty-lite USA Act (this was one of those “let’s pass an amnesty bill today in return for really, really tough border security in the future” bills). Lest you think this was some humanitarian act and not acting like a Chamber of Commerce open-borders sock puppet, look at the rest of her record. She voted against funding the border wall; she voted to end Trump’s emergency declaration that served as a justification to divert federal funds to the construction of the border wall. She also voted to override President Trump’s funding of the wall.

While voting against tax cuts and weakening immigration controls, she also opposed the Trump administration’s fight against Obamacare. She voted to continue to permit the military to accept transsexual recruits in the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act…a bill that also embedded Critical Race Theory into the military via the creation of Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity offices in the Pentagon and subordinate headquarters. When President Trump vetoed the bill, she voted with the Democrats to override the veto.

She voted for the so-called Equality Act that strips churches and religious groups of the ability to refuse to hire people living a lifestyle that conflicts with their beliefs. She voted against her own caucus to support a DC abortion law that, in the words of Heritage’s Ryan Anderson:

“could force employers in the nation’s capital to cover elective, surgical abortions in their health plans and require pro-life organizations to hire individuals who advocate for abortion.”

Lest you think this is an anomaly, it isn’t. In 2015, she cast the same vote on the same issue.

I think it is safe to say that Stefanik’s popularity and profile are due solely to her high profile fights with fat George Conway, formerly one of the main grifters with the North American Man-Boy Lincoln Association, and Adam “Pencil Neck” Schiff, and her defense of President Trump during the bizarre January “impeachment” debacle.

Can’t we do better? Insist on it.  One of her responsibilities is that she will be recruiting women to run for congress. Just what we need. More Rinos.

The very best of the swamp today.

 

Saturday flashback – DHS buys 100,000 mens briefs up to size 6X

Let’s do a November 2014 Saturday flashback. Obama thought of everything when dealing with our fence jumpers from around the world. But he didn’t care so much for our Border Agents.

Obama shipped illegal gang banger kids from South of the border into our neighborhoods without so much as telling the Governors of the States involved.  At least we can feel great that when they strut their stuff with their pants hanging around the low-end of their butt, we will have paid for their underwear. Anyone want to bet they weren’t made in the good old USA? On second thought, just who are these size 6 Xers? The Obama Department of Homeland Security is purchasing 100,000 pairs of underwear and sports bras for illegal aliens.

ICE made a similar purchase only five months ago when the agency purchased 42,000 pairs of men’s underwear, including 6X-Large briefs for men weighing over 450 pounds.

“We have to accommodate all varieties of sizes since we encounter a global population,” ICE spokesman Carl Rusnok told the New York Post.

Here is the bid solicitation.  Meanwhile, are Border Agents being quietly unarmed? Obama will do everything and anything to demoralize those that would protect us. But plenty of money for underwear.

Your tax dollars, hard at work.

1 White 100% Cotton Men’s Briefs Size: Medium Per Dozen – 600 DZ
2 White 100% Cotton Men’s Briefs Size: Large Per Dozen – 600
3 White 100% Cotton Men’s Briefs Size: X-Large Per Dozen – 600
4 White 100% Cotton Men’s Briefs Size: 2X-Large Per Dozen – 400
5 White 100% Cotton Men’s Briefs Size: 3X-Large Per Dozen – 400
6 White 100% Cotton Men’s Briefs Size: 4X-Large Per Dozen – 400
7 White 100% Cotton Men’s Briefs Size: 5X-Large Per Dozen – 300
8 White 100% Cotton Men’s Briefs Size: 6X-Large Per Dozen – 200

45,000 pair. Yes, a good start.

Border Patrol being stripped of their rifles

The News 4 Tucson Investigators have uncovered that some U.S. Border Patrol agents have lost a key part of their arsenal. And that has agents who patrol along the border here, extremely worried.

We learned that U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Offices of Border Patrol and Training and Development are inspecting the quality of agents’ M4 carbines throughout Border Patrol sectors nationwide. But agents tell us, some of those M4s have not been replaced. And, we’ve learned, agents are required to share rifles amongst each other.

“There’s a lot of agents that are pretty upset over it,” said Art del Cueto, president of the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector union. “We know it’s a dangerous job. We know what we signed on for but we want to have as much of the equipment as we need to perform the job.”

The Mexican Border – a No Man’s Land

 

Basically, a no-man’s land

By Mustang

 

Mr. Jim Chilton is 89-years old. He’s a fifth-generation cattle rancher

who, in spite of his age, still runs the Chilton Ranch at Arivaca, Arizona. It is a 50,000-acre spread outside Tucson, much of which abuts the Mexican border. Chilton’s truck can be frequently seen heading in one direction or another on the ranch, but no matter on what day or what time of day, Mr. Chilton is likely to spot armed members of a dangerous Mexican drug cartel moving with impunity along a favored illegal-immigration track. “It’s still the wild west out here,” he said.

 

Chilton’s only barrier to illegal activity from Mexico is a three-strand barbed-wire fence, which is about as effective as screen-doors on a submarine. The rancher estimates that around 4,000 drug-packers cut across through his land each year. But its more than drugs —it is also illegal immigrants. They’re not just from Mexico; they come from all around the world. What makes his land dangerous to both himself and his wife is that these illegal aliens are desperate to seek out a new life in the United States, at the taxpayer’s expense.

A desperate man is a dangerous man. Jim said, “You used to get old fashioned coyotes who would bring people across. They’d get $200 or $300 from each of ‘em, the fee for guiding them into the US. Now the operation is run by a cartel. They have scouts on top of our mountains. They charge about $3,000 for Mexicans, $7,000 to $9,000 for Central Americans, and between $25,000 and $75,000 for Asians. Most of the people coming through are just looking for work; they come from Guatemala, Honduras, and other Central American states. We’ve also had Iraqis come through, people from states in the Middle East, but most of the arrests made by the Border Patrol are from Guatemala.”

Chilton —who manages the ranch with his wife— describes the illegal activity as a national security issue. He believes that the border wall proposed by President Trump should be built because with the nearest Border Patrol station 80 miles away, there is no security for the Chilton’s. “It looks like the government has given up the fight,” he said.

Chilton has long warned the US government that the few strands of fence that separate Mexico from the United States is overwhelmingly inefficient keeping anyone out of the United States. “The lack of a serious barrier, combined with the Border Patrol’s enforcement decisions have effectively ceded miles of US territory to the Sinaloa Cartel, which stations guards on the mountains overlooking the ranch.” It was precisely this lack of barriers and few border agents that resulted in the ambush of a federal officer.

Drugs and illegal immigrants are a lucrative business, and according to Mr. Chilton, armed members of the drug cartel in Mexico controls much of his land. “They carefully time their movements to avoid being seen. The Border Patrol don’t come out here —they’ve left this area basically available to the cartel. It’s basically a no-man’s land.” Federal officials labeled the ambush as “A shooting incident,” but according to Mr. Chilton, if it wasn’t for the agent’s bullet-proof vest, he wouldn’t be alive today.

Mr. Chilton opined that the shooting could have been averted had the government taken our border security more seriously. “President Trump needs to complete the wall and fill the 25-mile gap and move the Border Patrol to the international boundary rather than 80 miles from the boundary.”

Brandon Judd, a Border Patrol agent (who also serves as President of the National Border Patrol Council) said that the area of the Chilton Ranch “is one of our most dangerous stretches on the border. It cries out for Mr. Trump’s wall,” he added. “If we had a wall in this location, the shooting would never have taken place.”

In a statement to the Washington Times, Judd said, “Unfortunately, our agency is still run by the Obama holdovers that gave us the failed open-border policies and operations of the past. Until serious changes are made, we will not be able to secure the border with those that refused to embrace the president’s vision on border security.”

Personally, I think that if Mr. Trump isn’t serious about border security, he ought to say so. If he is serious about it, then by all means —let’s take Mr. Chilton’s and Mr. Judd’s advice to heart and build the damn thing,

Border agents disarmed, but DHS has money for underwear

The Obama Department of Homeland Security is purchasing 100,000 pairs of underwear and sports bras for illegal aliens. Here is the bid solicitation:FBO Meanwhile, are Border Agents being quietly unarmed? Obama will do everything and anything to demoralize those that would protect us. But plenty of money for underwear.

“And, we’ve learned, agents are required to share rifles amongst each other.”

Infowars reported:

The Department of Homeland Security, which has been stripping Border Patrol agents of their rifles without replacement, is buying nearly 100,000 pairs of underwear, including sport bras, for illegals.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, a division of DHS, announced today it is seeking a company that can provide a wide variety of cotton briefs, panties, and sports bras in various sizes for boys, girls, and women.

“If your company can provide the product/services listed on the solicitation and comply with all of the solicitation instructions, please respond to this notice,” the announcement reads.

The sizes requested range from extra tiny to super large and the overall order is massive enough to accommodate nearly the entire population of Boulder, Colorado.

The request for boys’ underwear in particular alludes to the sudden surge of border crossings by gang members, which the Border Patrol said has increased by 100%.

ICE made a similar purchase only five months ago when the agency purchased 42,000 pairs of men’s underwear, including 6X-Large briefs for men weighing over 450 pounds.

“We have to accommodate all varieties of sizes since we encounter a global population,” ICE spokesman Carl Rusnok told the New York Post.

Obama orders killed Border Agent Brian Terry’s records sealed

Let us stay on this story and not let this corrupt administration get away with this.

On December 14, 2010 in Peck Canyon, northwest of Nogales, Arizona, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was shot dead by a group of illegal border entrants who refused commands to drop their weapons after they were confronted by U.S. agents. The illegals murdered Terry with a gun connected to a failed federal experiment that allowed firearms to be smuggled into Mexico. The family of slain border agent Brian Terry blamed Eric Holder for their son’s death in a recent interview. H/T:The Daley Gator

Now the Obama Administration has sealed the court records on Agent Terry’s murder.

Judicial Watch reported:

The Obama Administration has abruptly sealed court records containing alarming details of how Mexican drug smugglers murdered a U.S. Border patrol agent with a gun connected to a failed federal experiment that allowed firearms to be smuggled into Mexico.

This means information will now be kept from the public as well as the media. Could this be a cover-up on the part of the “most transparent” administration in history? After all, the rifle used to kill the federal agent (Brian Terry) last December in Arizona’s Peck Canyon was part of the now infamous Operation Fast and Furious. Conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the disastrous scheme allowed guns to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels.

Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of more than 1,000 guns which have been used in numerous crimes. In Terry’s case, five illegal immigrants armed with at least two semi-automatic assault rifles were hunting for U.S. Border Patrol agents near a desert watering hole just north of the Arizona-Mexico border when a firefight erupted and Terry got hit.

We know this only because Washington D.C.’s conservative newspaper got ahold of the court documents before the government suddenly made them off limits. The now-sealed federal grand jury indictment tells the frightening story of how Terry was gunned down by Mexican drug smugglers patrolling the rugged desert with the intent to “intentionally and forcibly assault” Border Patrol agents.

You can see why the administration wants to keep this information from the public and the media, considering the smugglers were essentially armed by the U.S. government. Truth is, no one will know the reason for the confiscation of public court records in this case because the judge’s decision to seal it was also sealed, according to the news story. That means the public or media won’t have access to any new or old evidence, filings, rulings or arguments.

Obama’s failed Fast and Furious program is also linked to 200 murders in Mexico.

DHS orders Border Patrol to pick up trash!

Let’s keep the good guys busy looking down and not across for the bad guys. Oh Janet, you are really getting to be too much! When does the hearing start on the DHS? Hurry, please.

If the Border Patrol isn’t defending the border, what are they doing down there besides providing free police services to invading colonists and getting shot by Mexican bandits? National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 reveals the answer — picking up trash:

Teams of uniformed Border Patrol agents from the Casa Grande [AZ] station are being ordered to spend their duty shifts cleaning up trash on the Tohono O’Odham Indian reservation instead of performing the police work they were hired for. This is outrageous. Border Patrol agents are not dumping trash on the reservation, nor are we responsible for cleaning up the mess. Illegal aliens, smugglers, and reservation members are dumping trash on the reservation. For example, there are thousands upon thousands of empty quart beer bottles strewn about the reservation, dumped there by tribal members. Many tribal residents dump household trash wherever it’s convenient. And as we all know, illegal aliens and smugglers could care less about littering in this country. Littering by tribal members and illegal aliens on the reservation has been going on for decades.

Our newest information indicates that agents showed up for muster at Casa Grande station and were ordered to report to the Tohono O’odham district office at Federal Route 19 and Baboquivari Park Road. They were issued sticks with nails in them and told to pick up trash along the roadsides. This was presumably in preparation for a meeting with tribal leaders at the District office so that certain BP managers could ingratiate themselves to the tribal leaders. We are disgusted by these actions.
