Gunmen attack governor’s convoy, kill guard

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) – Gunmen have attacked a convoy carrying the governor of a violence-wracked border state, killing one of his bodyguards and wounding two other agents.

It was not clear if the attackers were targeting Chihuahua Gov. Jose Reyes Baeza, but he canceled a trip Monday to meet with federal officials in Mexico City about security problems in his state, where hundreds have died in drug-related violence in recent months.

Baeza said gunmen in two cars fired high-powered weapons Sunday night at a vehicle two cars behind his in a convoy in the state capital, Chihuahua city. The two wounded agents were in stable condition on Monday and one of the attackers was hospitalized with a gunshot to the head. The other attackers fled.

Gunmen attack governor’s convoy, kill guard

I know that the Obama administration is going to do nothing unless there is an actual border incident in which many Americans, INNOCENT Americans, are killed, and even then I am not convinced that the Obama administration will do anything other than talk. Obama is NOT going to take the reins and actually LEAD this nation, that is pretty much a given I think.

George W. Bush did nothing to secure the U.S. border with Mexico, other than install some easily circumvented fencing. The National Guard troops that were authorized along the border were not armed security personnel, they were Engineering Companies, builders and construction people and they were there to propagate the belief that the Bush administration was actually doing something to protect American citizens IN the U.S.A., and it was ALL for show!

We, as Americans, have been, and are being led by a bunch of politically correct WIMPS that have no problems with sticking their noses into the business of nations half way around the world but balk in cowardice at the very thought of defending the sovereignty of this nation! I do NOT throw that accusation against Barack Obama alone, I include George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and even the great Ronald Reagan in this group.

I don’t know the feelings of people in other border states but I am well aware that there are people, great numbers of people, in the state of Texas that are ready to go to WAR along our border with Mexico. It is only a matter of time until Mexico explodes into a full blown civil war, they are on the verge of doing just that right now. Once it becomes an all out battle for political superiority in Mexico, it WILL get very nasty along the Texas border, and you can include New Mexico, Arizona and California in there as well, but my immediate concern is Texas.

Texans are truly the luckiest people on earth. We have some of the best gun laws in this nation, we are, for the most part, a well armed state. It is my guess that IF, and when Mexico does break out into open and violent civil war, the people of Texas will be openly carrying those weapons as they stand and defend what our federal government will NOT! I only hope that Governor Rick *Good Hair* Perry has the balls to immediately get in the fight himself!

I have been called a lot of things because of my belief that the Mexican border MUST be closed, I have been called a racist, but I have yet to see MEXICAN as a race, I believe it’s a nationality. I have been called a butcher for my saying that we must stop the invasion of this nation by ANY means necessary, even if that meant manning the border with heavily armed troops and shooting DEAD any that violate our sovereign soil! ANY that violate our borders!

That IS my belief, it will not change. I am wondering how those that brand ME a butcher will feel when South L.A. explodes and the gangsters decide to move into the more affluent, the nicer neighborhoods, and TAKE what they want? Do they expect that people like me will come running in to save the day? Guess again.

I, and many others, have been trying to warn the American people of this for several years now. Some have listened, some have prepared, others have shrugged their shoulders, called us names and gone on in their belief that ‘It just can’t happen here, not to me, not in MY neighborhood, we have LAWS, we have POLICE, the gangsters wouldn’t dare!’. Those individuals are wrong.

It can happen, and it quite likely will happen. Texans have fought Mexico before, and we won. We can, and WILL do it again. If the so-called leadership of this nation won’t stop the violence from spilling over to U.S. soil, then it’s going to be up to the good people of Texas to do so themselves.

Mexican collapse? Drug wars worry some Americans

Mexican collapse? Drug wars worry some Americans

MEXICO CITY (AP) – Indiscriminate kidnappings. Nearly daily beheadings. Gangs that mock and kill government agents.

This isn’t Iraq or Pakistan. It’s Mexico, which the U.S. government and a growing number of experts say is becoming one of the world’s biggest security risks.

The prospect that America’s southern neighbor could melt into lawlessness provides an unexpected challenge to Barack Obama’s new government. In its latest report anticipating possible global security risks, the U.S. Joint Forces Command lumps Mexico and Pakistan together as being at risk of a “rapid and sudden collapse.”

“The Mexican possibility may seem less likely, but the government, its politicians, police and judicial infrastructure are all under sustained assault and pressure by criminal gangs and drug cartels,” the command said in the report published Nov. 25.

Mexican collapse? Drug wars worry some Americans

Excuse ME?? “The prospect that America’s southern neighbor could melt into lawlessness provides an unexpected challenge to Barack Obama’s new government” is the most disingenuous, no, wait, scratch that, that is¬†the biggest line of BULL SHIT the MSM could possibly come up with.

Many of us have been preaching, long and loud, to any and all that would listen, CLOSE THE BORDER. Many Americans listened too, and many agreed, even when some of us called for troops to be placed ON that border, with orders to stop any and all crossings by whatever means necessary. Even if it meant having to defend that border with force. Even if it meant firing on those crossing our border at anything other than a legal entry point!

The potential for Mexican drug violence to spill over, in a big way, has also been pointed out repeatedly, by this blog and many others. One of the biggest failures of the Bush administration was it’s ignorance¬†in regards to border security of this nation. We were supposed to be pacified by the Bush administrations authorizing the building of some fence, a very short section of fence when you consider the overall length of the border we share with Mexico.

George W. Bush has never lived on the border, he has NO concept of the war that already exists, an undeclared war, fought here in Texas and the other border states. Barack Obama has no concept of that war either. Neither of them, Bush or Obama, have ever been close to the border when they weren’t under the protection of the¬†Secret Service, the Border Patrol, U.S. military forces and the like. Neither of these people have ever seen the damage being done by the drug runners and human traffickers that ply our borders and homeland on a daily basis.

To expect anything different from Obama is just out of the equation I am guessing. Our government, Bush for the last 8 years, and Obama in his coming time in office, don’t and won’t¬†give a damn about the security of this USA. They say they do, they make grand speeches regarding the safety of the homeland, but their words are as hollow as their suits.

The borders of the USA are NOT protected, we are wide open to any and all that just want to stroll across, whether in search of a job and a better life, a place to peddle their drugs or an opportunity to stage a terror attack against targets here in America.

This coming Tuesday the United States of America will be thrown into a maelstrom, right here, in our own back yard. I hope all of my fellows are prepared for this coming dark time. If not, it may well be too late. We are about to enter *The Dark Ages* of American history. I hope that at some point in the future, IF there is still an America, or a people that are fighting FOR freedom, national security and sovereignty, I hope they can see these words and say, “Well, he TRIED to tell them.”

Border Patrol agent wounds man near Mexican border

Border Patrol agent wounds man near Mexican border

SAN YSIDRO, Calif. (AP) – Authorities say a U.S. Border Patrol agent shot and wounded a man throwing rocks at agents near the U.S.-Mexico border in the San Diego area.

San Diego police Sgt. Kerry Tom says a group who had crossed to the U.S. side threw rocks at agents Tuesday night. Tom says the agents tried unsuccessfully to disperse the crowd by firing pepper balls.

One man was hit and fled into Mexico. He was found at a hospital and arrested by Mexican authorities. Details on his condition were not available.

A message left with a Border Patrol spokesman Wednesday morning was not returned.

SOURCE:
Border Patrol agent wounds man near Mexican border

Solutions:

Heavier weapons for our Border Patrol Agents.

Continued marksmanship training for our Border Patrol Agents.

More Border Patrol Agents, with heavier weapons.

Did I mention heavier weapons?

Free Ramos and Compean, reinstate them, give THEM heavier weapons and better marksmanship training.

Any Border Patrol Agent that *wounds* an attacker must spend at least 40 hours *on the range* learning better *shot placement* with his heavier weapon.

A *Heavier weapon* would be defined as a handgun, the caliber of which is NO LESS than a .40, preferably even larger, for example, a .41 Magnum, a .44 Magnum, a .45ACP or, for the truly serious Border Patrol Agent, a Desert Eagle .50 or an S&W .500.

Any of these *heavier weapons* would seriously negate the need to report *wounded* attackers and should result in more reports of *dead INVADERS*.
