• Drug cartels are helping would-be immigrants cross the border.
• Border officials: 3 of 4 people crossing the border are from countries other than Mexico.
• State lawmaker: “Texas is not waiting for Washington to act.”
Last weekend, I visited McAllen, Texas, a hotbed of activity in the recent immigration surge on the U.S. – Mexico border. I rode with U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, on a boat with the Texas Department of Public Safety along the Rio Grande River and toured one of the busiest processing centers in the country as it dealt with the flood of illegal aliens from Central America.
Steve McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, and Jose Rodriguez, regional commander of DPS (pictured left-right here), led the briefing on Operation Strong Safety, the surge operation ordered by Texas Gov. Rick Perry in June to address the growing crisis on the border. They told us the surge is aimed primarily at fighting the drug cartels and human smuggling operatives that control much of the Rio Grande Valley border.

WASHINGTON — The United States has deployed combat unmanned aerial vehicles in Iraq.
The Defense Department said the U.S. military has used both manned and unmanned aircraft amid the war against Al Qaida’s Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

The Pentagon said some of the unidentified UAVs were armed to
protect U.S. special operations forces in the field.
“The reason that some of those aircraft are armed is primarily for force
protection reasons now that we have introduced into the country some
military advisers whose objective will be to operate outside the confines of
the [U.S.] embassy,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said.
The post Both U.S. drones and manned aircraft set for combat missions in Iraq appeared first on World Tribune.
“If the Republican party accomplishes its objects and gives the government to the North,
I turn my eyes from the consequences. To the fifteen States of the South that government will
appear an alien government. It will appear a hostile government.”
(Rufus Choate to the Maine Whig State Central Committee)
“It is quite sensibly felt by all, that the success of the Black Republicans would be the death knell of the Union.”
(Ex-President John Tyler)
“We see a political party . . . with the avowed purpose of electing [their] candidates by suffragesof one part of the Union only to rule over the whole United States. Can it be possible that those
who are engaged in such measure can have seriously reflected upon the consequences which must
inevitably follow in case of success? Can they have the madness or folly to believe that our
Southern brethren would submit to be governed by such a chief magistrate? . . .
We are treading upon the brink of a volcano that is liable at any moment to burst forth and overwhelm the nation.”
(Ex-President Millard Fillmore, Albany, NY, 1856)
“I have told you what we mean to do. I want to know, now, when [the Republican party triumph] takes place, what you mean to do. I often hear it intimated that you mean to divide the Union whenever a Republican or anything like it is elected President of the United States.
Are you going to split the Ohio down through, and push your half off a piece?
Or are you going to build up a wall some way between your country and ours . . . You have divided the Union because we would not do right with you, as you think upon that subject; when we cease to be under obligations to do anything for you, how much better off do you think you will be?
Will you make war and kill us all?
You will never make much of a hand at whipping us. If we were fewer in numbers than you, I think you could whip us; if we were equal, it would likely be a drawn battle; but being inferior in numbers, you will make nothing by attempting to master us.”
(Presidential candidate Lincoln to the Illinois State Republican Convention, 10 May 1859)

As tens of thousands of illegal immigrants continue to flood America’s southern border, states along that border have been forced take corrective action where the Obama administration refuses to do so.
Arizona is considering a lawsuit against the federal government in an attempt to force border security by those responsible for it, whereas Texas has taken more direct measures by deploying armed agents to key areas as part of the announced “Texas Border Surge.”
Thus far, those efforts have been insufficient to reverse a situation that seems to be spinning out of control. Both American civilians and Border Patrol agents have found themselves in danger not only from illegal immigrants and violent cartels, but now also from the Mexican military as well.
Now civilian militia groups are providing additional manpower in the form of hundreds of members who are attempting to mitigate the humanitarian and security crisis by sealing at least part of the nation’s border with Mexico.
Please continue your prayers for Johnny’s healing and strength, that our fathers divine intervention lift him to a quick recovery!
In our father YHVH’s most holy name do we pray and petition…
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any
thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he
hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we
desired of him. (1 John 5:14-15 KJV)
My main reason for this somewhat gruesome post is to show people who have this condition that surgery is the best and by far safest cure for this crippling disease:-
As you can see from the picture. This was a really unpleasant procedure to repair the damage to my spinal cord caused by the bony protuberances crushing my spinal column. The surgeons cut through the neck at the front, then through the vocal box, wind-pipe around the food-pipe then into the c3 to c7 vertebrate’s. They are sometimes called the Hangman’s vertebrate’s due to the fact that it is these that, when broken, cause death to a hanged Person. I have the dubious honour of having my neck broken like a hanged criminal, and live to write about it.
My Consultant, Mr Shad (LORD JESUS please bless him) didn’t think I’d be able to walk or talk. But due to his team of experts and the LORD Jesus Christ, I can.

A surge of children crossing the southern border and entering the United States illegally has become a political crisis. House Republicans hammered the White House on the issue in recent days while the administration countered by highlighting how it has responded.
But what’s really going on?
