President Trump said that he has authorized American troops on the US-Mexico border to “use lethal force” if necessary to protect Customs and Border Protection personnel from migrants if they engage in violence. Trump also threatened to close “the whole border” if it becomes uncontrollable or if Americans protecting the border get hurt. Trump said that there were 500 criminals traveling with the caravan, which was reported by the Department of Homeland Security last week.
President Donald Trump said Thursday he has authorized American troops on the US-Mexico border to “use lethal force” if necessary against an approaching group of migrants while also threatening to close “the whole border.”
Trump, who was speaking with military members and reporters at Mar-a-Lago, also said there “certainly could” be a government shutdown over border wall funding in December.
“If they have to, they’re going to use lethal force. I’ve given the OK,” Trump said. “If they have to — I hope they don’t have to.”
“I have no choice,” Trump said, and, without providing evidence, added, “You’re dealing with a minimum of 500 serious criminals” and “rough people.”
Earlier this week, Trump approved a memorandum that granted new authority to troops on the border to protect Customs and Border Protection personnel from migrants if they engage in violence. Until the new authority was granted, troops were not allowed to intervene if CBP personnel came under attack unless they needed to act in their own self-defense.
Trump has sent nearly 6,000 troops to the US-Mexico border to protect against a group of migrants coming through Mexico from Central America. Many of the migrants have said they are seeking asylum and fleeing gang violence and persecution in their home countries. Trump ordered the deployment shortly before the midterm elections, when Trump was making the fight against illegal immigration a central part of his pitch for Republicans seeking office.
Defense Secretary James Mattis said Wednesday “there has been no call for any lethal force from (the Department of Homeland Security),” saying that any troops backing up customs personnel would not be carrying firearms but could be equipped with shields and batons.
Trump on Thursday also said “two days ago we closed the border,” and added, “nobody’s coming in.”
Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former prosecutor, Fox News commentator, and the ex-wife of Newsom, said that the Governor’s action created a threat to public safety, and was a slap in the face to victims, their families, and law enforcement who put them away.
George Soros has spent over $13.4-million on district attorney races in local governments. Without passing a single law, a DA prosecutor can remake a city’s justice system. Philadelphia’s DA is undermining the existing legal system because it is ‘racist’, and the homicide rate has risen 12%.
The former Google engineer said that anything from a change in the weather to a lack of understanding complex human behavior could throw the robots off course and that they always should be controlled by humans. [There is no suggestion in the article that Google is involved in the
A dozen suspected gang members are accused of preying on drunk people and robbing them. Robberies are up 53% this year in central downtown Minneapolis and, in one 20-day stretch, 47 people were attacked, most of them by pack hunters.
Democrats want to remove guns and ammunition from individuals deemed as dangerous by any anonymous, unaccountable person, but it would not include the already existing lists of violent gang members. This is further evidence that Congress has no interest in reducing violence in America.

The Houthis have claimed responsibility but, since Iran is a ally of the Houthis and since the drones used in the attack may have come from Iran, the Saudis are putting the blame on Iran. The NeoCons and WarHawks in Washington are calling for war.

Hundreds of other people reported hearing explosions before the buildings came down, highly suggestive of controlled demolition.

Mexican President Pena Nieto cancelled his meeting with President Trump after Trump tweeted that there was no point in having the meeting unless Nieto was ready to talk about funding the border wall. Then Nieto made statements that, in more sane times, would be considered as a declaration of war. He said that Mexico would use its consulates in every US state to help illegal immigrants get taxpayer-funded benefits and to protect them while they reject assimilation into America, which amounts to an invasion by a foreign country. The Mexican President is supporting the globalist agenda of breaking down the US to the point where it cannot survive without UN permission and control.
