The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence. — Article IV, Section 4 United States Constitution
Greetings, everyone, from Kinney County, Texas. It is a beautiful piece of landscape located between Del Rio and Eagle Pass. Kinney County sits in the middle of those two US border ports of entry, along the Rio Grande River, and it is ground zero for witnessing that our southern border is not secure. Politicians have a tendency to show up for photo ops, grandstands, deliver talking point speeches, and then depart. Leaders move to the sound of the guns and take up a position on the frontlines and get a sense of the battlefield. This is why I come to Bracketville, Texas, once per quarter. The last time I was here was at the end of April to see for myself.
I walk the ground with the brush team. I ride on patrols. I even go and inventory the immense Kinney County Sheriff’s Office car impound yard. That is why I can unequivocally state that Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Alejandro Mayorkas, and Karine Jean-Pierre are full of bovine excrement when they profess that our border is “secure.”
No, we do not need to continue with investigating the financial dealings of Joe Biden and the Biden Crime Family, Inc. We have plenty of irrefutable evidence — based upon the excerpt above from our US Constitution — that Biden is guilty of the high crime and misdemeanor of failing to protect the sovereignty of the United States of America. Yes, I will continue to emphasize this point because I see the ramifications, as you do also, of this failure.
On this trip to Kinney County, I have seen the social media messages that the transnational narco-criminal terrorist organizations, known as the Mexican drug cartels, are using to entice Americans to transport illegal immigrants. Yes, to get involved in human smuggling. Funny, we have these social media platforms colluding with the Biden administration to suppress American free speech rights. Yet, these same social media platforms willfully allow terrorist organizations to advertise for human smuggling, and it seems to pay well, offering $3,000-$12,000. Why are social media platforms not blocking these cartels who use their platforms to communicate? Well, I can only surmise that the cartels are paying them off as well.
The human mules are using their personal vehicles to rendezvous at pick-up points and then seek to evade law enforcement checkpoints. Kinney County has become a haven for high-speed chases and bailouts, given its location in between Del Rio and Eagle Pass. There were several during this visit. As well, the cartels are employing their own scouts to conduct reconnaissance of routes and checkpoints for the purpose of evasion. The Kinney County brush team is noticing tracks that are not just those of amateurs, but also trained skilled brush beaters who seemingly have knowledge of trails and tracks, as well as back county roads.
Yes, there is an alarming increase in single military-age males, and females, who are entering our country illegally. While listening to the trend reports, I was informed of a supposed South Korean female who turned out to be from North Korea. From my understanding, the US State Department got involved, and this female was escorted elsewhere. Perhaps Secretary of State Tony Blinken would like to tell us when he is not busy gathering signatures from intelligence officials for a false document.
As a commander who has been in combat zones, what is immediately needed here, along our border, are not orange buoys in the Rio Grande River but constant 24/7 aerial surveillance. Recently, the US Army decided to retire its most effective scout surveillance helicopter, the OK-58D Kiowa Warrior. Of course, the leftists are having fits and apoplectic meltdowns because of the name. I guess they don’t like the Apache helicopter name either! This aerial surveillance helicopter is perfect for this mission and terrain. It possesses a Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) capability that precludes anyone from hiding. This is precisely what is needed to coordinate with ground elements to vector, block, and marshal these illegal immigrants.
However, none of this works if we do not allow the men and women of federal, state, and local law enforcement to do their job of enforcing the law. Biden and crew are in total and complete violation of the rule of law. At some point, there must be men and women of courage, conviction, and character who refuse to follow unconstitutional, immoral, unethical, and unlawful orders, mandates, and dictates. We must no longer gather up illegals and further disperse them into our nation.
You talk to the people here in Kinney County. They know what an invasion looks like. This is not about “migrants” fleeing oppression. This is about people who are seeking to escape and evade apprehension. I will be out in Alpine, Texas, at the end of the month, in Big Bend country. They are experiencing the same issue, and the hardened types of illegals that are transiting the high mountain desert there genuinely do not wish to be caught.
So, we must ask ourselves, if we do not believe in Article IV, Section 4 of our Constitution, then what do we believe? If you do not believe that America is a sovereign nation with borders to protect and defend, what do you believe? If you do not believe millions entering this country illegally is an invasion, what do you believe? If you believe that China should continue shipping deadly fentanyl to the narco-criminal terrorists who transport this chemical into our country with the sole purpose of killing Americans, what do you believe?
The oath of office for the President of the United States states:
“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Joe Biden is not doing so and is in violation of his oath and the Constitution of the United States. I took an oath to “…support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign, and domestic, and to bear true faith and allegiance to the same . . . I take this obligation freely without mental reservation or purpose of evasion . . . so help me God”.
To the mindless lemmings of the progressive socialist left, and your media accomplices, your willful and intentional undermining of our Constitutional Republic will fail. I invite any of you down here to the border to walk the terrain with me and see for yourselves.
Regardless, your lies are known and will not be accepted. Why you hate and despise our country is of little matter to me. Just know you will not be allowed to destroy it on my watch!
Steadfast and Loyal.
