Construction Halts under Biden
Just a few things I thought I would point out as you read the following article.
The most glaring is the main stream media’s response to what’s happening, or not happening, at our Southern Border. As you read, just substitute the “Biden” administration with the Trump administration and imagine how different things would be. Imagine the press’s reaction to DHS being ordered not to talk to the press or answer any questions.
Then just imagine the press accepting being told by a Trump administration that you may not accompany administration officials to a detention facility. Naturally they would claim that Trump is trying to prevent us from seeing “kids in cages.” But the response from the press this time is nothing – crickets. read more
It’s beginning to look like the Washington D.C. swamp may be undrainable. Despite president Trump’s best efforts, at least so far, the D.C. swamp is still alive and up to no good.
But it’s one thing to try to push for more giveaway programs, or bring in more illegals. It’s quite another to directly fund terrorism.

DHS Approves $100K Grant Of Taxpayers’ Money To CAIR

It certainly appears that president-elect Donald Trump is serious about implementing at least some of his campaign promises. He better be – and not a moment too soon – because it’s much worse at the border than we’re being told.
The internet exploded on Tuesday when Reuters reported on an internal memo they obtained from the Department of Homeland Security.
After an exhaustive search of the web, it appears I am the only one to ask what I deemed to be a rather obvious question. How did Reuters obtain this memo? Virtually every article I perused, including the Reuters piece, described it as an “internal agency memo.” No one, including Reuters, ever said it was leaked, nor a Freedom of Information Act demand put on them to release it, as conservative media must do. No – just that it was a DHS “internal agency memo” reviewed by Reuters. I thought that odd. Is Reuters, and other leftist media outlets, privy to all DHS “internal” memos?
Anyway, Reuters wrote that the memo described a December 5, 2016 meeting between DHS and the Trump transition team. Trump’s team is said to have asked “the Department of Homeland Security to assess all assets available for border wall and barrier construction.” That’s a good sign. My guess is they probably have plenty of assets, as they sure haven’t been using any. read more

In 2014, FedEx faced drug-trafficking charges after a federal grand jury in San Francisco indicted it for conspiring to deliver prescription drugs for illegal Internet pharmacies.
“The indictment says FedEx knew for a decade that such pharmacies used their services…”
They apparently ignored nearly a decade of warnings from the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Food and Drug Administration and members of Congress… “FedEx knew that it was delivering drugs to dealers and addicts,” the Justice Department said in a press release.
Fast forward to today. After two years, FedEx and our government are headed to federal court. I personally think this is a shakedown, similar to the 2013 case involving UPS. They avoided a court fight, choosing instead to settle, paying the feds some $40 million.
Some however, would say that our government is trying to help us, by cracking down on the evil drug trade – and that’s a good thing, right?
But what about human trafficking? Seems to me this is worse than even drugs. Cartels based in Mexico shuttle illegals into America under the radar and drop them off in various places across the country.
One would think the Obama administration would be more concerned with this epidemic than FedEx and some internet pharmacies. Well, they might, if our government wasn’t the cartel. read more
