ARE CARTELS TAKING OVER THE BORDER?

Rancher Claims Cartels Smuggling People From MidEast into Country
By SOF

A rancher in southern Texas claims that Mexican drug cartels have taken control of the United States border and are helping people from across the world illegally enter the United States. The claim comes as reports indicate that the Islamic State is also taking interest in the border between the United States and Mexico.

According to the blog Gateway Pundit, Cuban “Rusty” Monsees, a rancher on the border with Mexico, said, “We get kids. We get adults. The cartel is bringing across, importing people from as far away as the Mediterranean. I’ve talked to agents and they picked up some characters from Somalia, Iran, Iraq, Syria… anything that you can think of these agents are having to deal with.”

A member of the group Oathkeepers, identified as Rob in the blog post cited by Gateway Pundit, reported that a number of terrorists are being apprehended on the border. Rob was quoted as saying that the captured individual were on the “United States terrorist wanted list [for acts against the United States] – not watch, but wanted list” and that CBP was “not allowed” to release information about such busts to the general public.

HOMELAND SECURITY BLOWS MONEY ON CARS IT DOESN’T USE

By SOF

The Department of Homeland Security blew almost $50 million on vehicles it rarely – if ever – use in fiscal year 2012. The Department reportedly drove about 60% of its vehicles less than 12,000 miles per year.

According to a report by GovExec.com, an audit by the Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security revealed the under-use of a significant portion of the 56,000 vehicles the department owned. The department, which has numerous agencies, including the Coast Guard, Customs and Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the Secret Service, spends a total of $534 million every year.

WHAT TO DO WITH THE LITTORAL COMBAT SHIP

The Navy’s Flop Could Be The Coast Guard’s Godsend
By Harold Hutchison

The Littoral Combat Ship has been a lightning rod of controversy. While it has cutting-edge technology, it has been very expensive (at least $400 million per hull), and it has been lightly armed. The Navy is planning to halt construction after thirty-two hulls, evenly divided between the Freedom-class and the Independence-class designs. The vessels are also lightly armed, presently working with a Mk 110 57mm gun and a number of .50-caliber machine guns. The armament suite seems to be closer to that of the Bertholf-class cutters in Coast Guard service than to a real warship.
