We went south to the Arizona /
Mexico border to see for ourselves just what was going on down there. Some
friends figured we’d need AR-15s, with all the trouble reported. If
we needed that kind of firepower, we’d be in the wrong place, or
better make a U turn. We didn’t need anything more than credit cards
for gift shops, gas, grub and board.
We figured from the sound of it,
driving the dirt border road inches from Mexico and back trails through
empty desert leading to it, especially if heavily armed, would surely get
us stopped at least once, possibly disarmed for the duration of the stop,

and in the end it didn’t matter, it didn’t matter at all. Not
only didn’t we get stopped, we had to stop Border Patrol guys to ask
questions, or they would have just waved as they drove by or waved us
through a checkpoint. Honestly, we don't fit the profile. Profiling is a
good thing, I've always said that. Because it's true. Everyone in law
enforcement knows that. It's how you distinguish good guys from bad guys,
at the get go.
organized incursion, not random migration.
Bottom line -- we basically found
no illegal immigration problem from Douglas to Sierra Vista, where years
ago there was a massive flood. The flow of people is being directed --
directed I say -- which is obvious and was also confirmed by BP
people -- to locations that have (get this) sufficient food, water,
housing, clothing, medical attention and basically bookkeeping facilities
to handle them. I heard there are commercials running south of the border
telling people now is the time to come.
And too many are now
coming to handle at all, we were told in southern Arizona. But coming
elsewhere, not where we were. The Yuma Sheriff publicly announced it's a
crisis, they are absolutely overrun. The Tombstone Marshall told us
personally all is quiet in his neck of the woods, matching what the locals
told us, every one. It's an organized invasion, not random
It was frustrating to sit in a
Border Patrol border office and not get a straight answer about who is
directing the traffic to us. ‘We don’t know, that’s not
our responsibility, we just enforce the law, we don’t have that
information...’ You don’t have any idea, don’t you talk
among yourselves, don’t you guess, don’t you hear things from
the border crossers? Don’t you have intel people in those countries,
or get it somehow? I ran out of ways to ask -- not an easy thing for me.
They haven’t got a clue, if you believe them on that. It’s not
Driving that dirt road, "Border
Road," you can see why no one comes across here any longer. There’s a
frickin’ damn big dangerous patrolled fence. It didn’t take
two-point-five gazillion dollars to build either, or a decade. Firmly
rooted rugged metal pipes stretch skyward, encased in razor ribbon and
concertina wire. Ain’t no mother with her baby scaling this puppy and
jumping. And that would do you no good. You'd land in the dirt patrol road,
facing the next fence, same build. Survive that and you’re on the
next dirt patrol road, all of which have flood lights and sensor arrays.
And BP vehicles typically in sight of each other. Oh, didn’t the
“news” mention any of this, or show it in endlessly looped
Fence quality and style changed
from mile to mile. It was not something I would want to try to defeat even
though some fencing was a softer target than other sections. This was south
and east of Naco, Arizona, where years ago, foreigners tramped across a
border protected by a few strands of broken barbed wire.
It wasn't us as weekend warriors facing death from banditos, this
was a lovely walk in the park, a couple of days out of town. We grilled
every shopkeeper, eatery owner, waitress, gift and clothing shop clerk
(southern Arizona is blistered with wonderful little shops) about the
non-citizens flooding through. Boring. I think we either heard stories they
thought we wanted to hear, repeated, that the media just likes to scare
people, or odd stories of a few bedraggled people outside of town. We saw
no signs, not even scat.
So if they’re flooding the
ports of entry, and other states, how much time will we need to go around
and check them out? Mass media promoted February as a record setting month
for captured break ins. Then announced that March set a new record,
114,000, and predicted April would beat that. Tell me someone is not
orchestrating this. Tell me also Border Patrol has no idea what’s
happening. Which is worse -- they really don’t know, or they know
damn well and it keeps going on with their knowledge?
Don’t forget the military
question: We’ve been told the military is on the border. This was
especially important for my friend, and he asked about it every chance he
could. Where are they? We didn’t see any. We were informed by BP
(something we already knew) that the military can’t enforce civilian
comitatusand all that.
Fine, we don't want military enforcing civilian law on our soil.
“They’re in a support
role, so we are freed up to do this work.’ So what’s a support
role? None of the answers made sense. They’re doing administrative
work. You have the National Guard working as secretaries? Seriously?
They’re repairing vehicles. Don’t you have a motor pool, like,
with mechanics? Do solders do truck maintenance? The deeper we dug, the
deeper the hole. It seemed they had been coached, trained with talking
points, how to deflect, we don’t know where the military support is.
Not visible is one answer.
I know I'm going to hear how
wrong this all is. I need to know where to look for what. Douglas was a
ghost town. The roads winding their way through barren desert down that way
were barren. A brief second run through Yuma looked quiet and calm. Well,
that's 30 minutes from the border, say, San Luis. Foot and vehicle traffic
through that port of entry seemed normal, stores were in operation.
Admittedly, it was a cursory view, better look next time. But I sure
wouldn't want to attempt those fences. Not with all the watchers, razor
wire, or carrying anything, wall after wall. I definitely must be missing

For reasons that went unexplained at press time, despite
raging and foaming from self-proclaimed feminists and "woke" socialists
attempting to dominate: the pop culture, news media, Hollywood, the school
system, music and everything around you -- even you -- women still wear
clothing that exposes their lady parts, the parts that entice real men to
lust after them and sometimes do unspeakable things.
Why women expose themselves that way, and
relinquish any responsibility for the results, remained an unspoken mystery
at press time. The men, as demonstrated in the images, do no such thing,
and can sit with their legs comfortably akimbo. For a woman to sit with her
legs apart, well, let's not go

complex game with spoken and unspoken rules. The so-called #MeToo

abused the other intolerably? Of course, it's common knowledge. But anyone
who thinks men and women are equal must simply consider who is stronger,
and from where rape claims come -- it is totally one-sided because the two
sexes are not equal at all. To pretend otherwise is dumb.
When men start complaining about rape in
equal numbers and start their own #MeAlso movement this tune will change.
Fundamental differences in the very biology of things means place your bets
wisely. Keep crossing your legs ladies, or change your clothes, and
