It’s the kind of idea that makes far too much sense for most in Congress to go along with it. Seize a convicted drug lord’s $9 billion or so of assets to better secure the U.S. southern border? Why would Democrats do that when they apparently support a more open border, more crime, drugs, and human trafficking? None of those terrible things matter so long as it means getting more voters, right?
Goodness gracious will someone over at CNN please return some semblance of sanity to that once-proud news organization?
Just today CNN runs a headline story in which they take the side of drug traffickers regarding the now infamous border wall proposal being pushed by the Trump administration. (It should also be noted most of the Democrat Party is taking the side of the Mexican drug cartel as well on this issue) These sly little drug traffickers are declaring that the wall won’t work. (why would they want it to?) Apparently that’s enough for CNN to craft an anti-Trump story and by default a pro-drug cartel story.
Let that sink in. On a day we find out you’re at greater risk of dying from a opioid overdose (much of it coming in from Mexico) than you are from a car accident, the Establishment Media embraces drug dealers and attacks President Trump.
STAY CLASSY CNN.
It’s funny but it’s not because the gist of the cartoon sadly is very real within the Democrat Party today. A once-proud and historic political party by Americans for Americans has turned its back on the principles of America-First in favor of citizen-last.
When a nation turns its back on its own safety and self-interest that is a nation in very serious trouble…
A teacher on the brink. A father seeking justice.
Their paths are about to cross and their lives will never be the same…
“MR. DIAZ’S REVENGE cuts to the core of what is so wrong with so much in America. From schools that no longer teach within a society that has seemingly lost its ability to listen, it’s a fictional story that in many ways is more real than what is portrayed on the news and that also has something very important to say to those still paying attention. The characters are believable, the action and dialogue riveting, with a message that should appeal to all of us. Read it. Read it now.”

While left-leaning think tanks say the cost of illegal immigration is “only” $50 billion per year and right-leaning think tanks estimate it to be closer to $200 billion per year, the truth likely lies somewhere in the middle and regardless of where the actual (and always changing) numbers lie – it’s a TON of money and one of the single greatest threats to U.S. security both economic and other.
So, for Democrats to refuse to spend even $5 billion on improved border security is appalling given they are choosing politics over safety and security.
Why not? The illegal drug trade accounts for the vast majority of mayhem on both sides of the border. Why not take the seized funds from one of the biggest drug dealers in all the world (far behind the drug companies themselves, of course) and build the darn wall!? What a brilliant idea. Of course, we’re talking Washington D.C., the place where good ideas and common sense go to die…(This idea was originally suggested LAST YEAR. So, BRING IT BACK and tell the anti-secure border Democrats to POUND SAND.)
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a bill calling for the use of $14 billion seized from cartel drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to be used to pay for the President’s border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals across our southern border,” Senator Cruz stated, according to a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas from the senator’s office. “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities.”
The Texas senator said that leveraging criminally forfeited assets from El Chapo and other Mexican cartel members and drug dealers can “offset the wall’s cost and make meaningful progress toward achieving President Trump’s stated border security objectives.”
Senator Cruz introduced the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act on Tuesday. “The U.S. Government is currently seeking the criminal forfeiture of more than $14 billion in drug proceeds and illicit profits from El Chapo, the former leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel who was recently extradited to the U.S. to face criminal prosecution for numerous alleged drug-related crimes, including conspiracy to commit murder and money laundering,” Cruz stated.
The Mexican government extradited the former Mexican drug kingpin in January, Breitbart Texas’ Ildefonso Ortiz reported. The move to an American prison cell followed months of court battles in Mexico and multiple escapes from prison by Guzman. As part of the agreement with Mexico, Guzman will not face the death penalty in the U.S. for his crimes. Prosecutors filed murder charges against the former drug lord in relation to the killings of a U.S. citizen and two relatives.
The open-borders globalists want a confrontation the Establishment Media can then spin into an anti-border security frenzy.
That confrontation is said to now be imminent.
ABOVE: Media reports have suggested the movement of thousands of “asylum seekers” toward the U.S. southern border is comprised mostly of women and children.
It is a gathering dominated by young men – very similar to what has been taking place throughout Europe for the last decade as entire nations are being transformed/overrun by people who have no interest in assimilating but rather are there to colonize. Crime rates have skyrocketed and social services are at breaking points as “come on in” government policies have proved disastrous to the people paying for them.
The same is being attempted right now in the United States. President Trump poses a direct threat to those who would transform America’s socio-political landscape with millions of people who have no intention of ever identifying as American. The proposed border wall has become the symbolic battle between these two opposing forces.
It is said Soros-funded operations throughout Central America are largely responsible for this latest round of mass migration – an operation also alleged to have ties to the Obama Machine that continues to dominate D.C. – including the actions of the current Republican “leadership.”
President Trump continues to be isolated like the virus the D.C. establishment views him as. This same establishment wants a tragic confrontation to take place at the border. Whispers warn such a plan has been months-in-the-making and is about to be played out in real time.
Trump must tread very carefully in the coming days and weeks regarding the border security issue and not allow himself to be boxed into an issue that will pay big dividends for the globalists during the 2018 Midterms. This will be easier said than done as he fights to make our nation safer while also having to fight just as hard against the political-media globalist conglomerate that seeks to destroy him and his millions of supporters.
