Shocking Border Audio of 517 Illegals Pursued In One Day In One Area
By: Guest Post
The audio in this post presents “highlights” of law enforcement and border patrol pursuing hundreds of illegal aliens in a single day in only one portion of a single sector.
It documents the detection, pursuit and/or apprehension of 517 illegal aliens around McAllen, Texas on 07/29/14, miles from the border.
The audio is an extreme compression of the detection, pursuit and/or apprehension of 42 groups of 517 illegal aliens in a portion of the Rio Grande Valley Sector.
As indicated below, that number does not include groups for which no count was given by Border Patrol agents or Texas DPS officers. It excludes enforcement incidents that were conducted over secure radio channels. Finally, it excludes groups that successfully evaded detection.
Why don’t we hear this in the media?
Significant Events in Audio:
- There were MANY alien groups being worked during this 24 hour period where the size of the group could not be determined.
- Audio clips are comprised of USBP radio traffic broadcast “in-the-clear” (un-encrypted) from the busy McAllen Sector.
- It is estimated that un-encrypted radio traffic comprises less than 30% of the total activity for any given time period.
Most of the activity overheard did not occur at the border. No doubt, the recent surge of UAC (Unaccompanied children) and “family units” is continuing in this area, but is being handled by DHS so as not to attract additional public scrutiny. Note the slight mention in this audio of UACs and “family units “where previously thousands have been know to cross in this area.
Knowing that UACs & family units present themselves to the nearest Border Patrol Agent upon crossing the Rio Grande to obtain their “permiso”, who are these people in groups of 20, 30 & 50 who are trying to evade the Border Patrol many miles north of the border?

Potentially a Huge Turn-Around
We have sent a delegation to Egypt, where a ceasefire is being discussed. But Netanyahu says ceasefire or no ceasefire, we will not stop our work. He will not accept any ceasefire proposal that does not allow us to complete our work on the tunnels.
In fact, Prime Minister Netanyahu’s words spoken before this morning’s Security Cabinet meeting suggesting that we are now aiming for the full demilitarization of Gaza (emphasis added):
”We have struck hard at thousands of terrorist targets: Command centers, rocket arsenals, production facilities, launch areas and hundreds of terrorists have been killed. These achievements and the neutralization of the tunnels are only the first stage in the demilitarization of the Gaza Strip…
”We are working around the clock, shoulder to shoulder, sagaciously and responsibly, for the people of Israel. Naturally, we cannot share with the public all of the information and all of the considerations at our disposal. We have an orderly plan and we are acting accordingly.”
But he also said this, with regard to the demilitarization of the Gaza Strip:
“The US, the EU and other important elements in the international community have accepted our position and I must say that this was not an easy thing to achieve but we did it together, with hard work.”
I read it and thought, “Nah… no way.” Then I thought that maybe it’s true but perhaps in order to bring the international community on board, Netanyahu promised who-knows- what with regard to “negotiations.”
But my checking – and I have two very solid sources here, one with PA connections and Arabic-speaking – indicates that this is real, or may yet be, and that Netanyahu promised nothing in terms of a negotiating position, or what we would give to Abbas with regard to “two states” or his position in Judea and Samaria.
What may be the case is that the international community would hope to see Abbas involved in a demilitarized Gaza at some level – at a bare minimum, regarding supervision of crossings.
But this isn’t about the community’s desire to enhance Abbas’s position. This is about fear and hatred of Hamas, and thus an eagerness to see it taken out.
One of my sources spoke specifically about growing fear of radical jihadists in Europe, which has motivated the EU to completely support Israel’s bid to undo Hamas. “One-hundred percent,” he said.
And then this same source said, without blinking an eye, “But not the United States. Obama is for the Muslim Brotherhood.” It was his speculation that Netanyahu mentioned the US too so as to present a solid front, but that in the end the US, because of its position, would be frozen out.
Netanyahu also spoke about “other important elements in the international community who have accepted our position.” Why wouldn’t he name these elements? Because they are elements who prefer not to be publicly allied with Israel, even as they support Israel’s position against Hamas.
The first of those elements would, quite clearly, be Egypt: Egypt’s president, al-Sisi, despises the Brotherhood.
But we can look further than this:
Khaled Abu Toameh has just written an article about the alarm expressed in certain Arab quarters with the current pro-Brotherhood position being taken by the US, which ultimately might even bring Iran into the picture.
Wrote Abu Toameh (emphasis added):
“According to a senior Abbas advisor, the Palestinian Authority president urged the Saudi monarch to exert pressure on the Obama Administration to keep Qatar and Turkey out of the picture.
“The advisor said that Saudi Arabia voiced support for demands to demilitarize the Gaza Strip as part of any cease-fire agreement. ‘Demilitarizing the Gaza Strip would mean the end of Hamas,’ the advisor said. ‘The Egyptians, Saudis and other Arab countries also share this view.”
And so, my friends, we have to sit tight and see how this plays out now. I do not say it metaphorically, but rather in very real terms: Please pray.
The PR war may have taken a turn for the better as well, because the lethal antics of Hamas and its partner-in-terrorism, UNRWA, are being exposed at a new level.
What I wish to focus on here is one specific incident, with more to follow soon. I ask that you note it and share it absolutely as broadly as possible. Please!.
You know the routine: Tell people, write letters to the editor and op-eds in local papers, put out information in Internet discussion groups and post it on your FB pages. Do talkbacks on the Internet and call in to radio shows. Send information (with the URL) to editors and demand that they cover this. Israel is being libeled daily. Help turn the tide. Working together you can.
The news that has been released today is a mind-boggler.
Two days ago, we lost three soldiers because an UNRWA clinic was booby-trapped, while some additional 17 soldiers were wounded. The soldiers were in the vicinity of the clinic because they were working on dismantling tunnels.
Today this information has been released (emphasis added):
“Over eighty kilograms of explosives were built into the UN-funded hospital’s walls themselves, it was cleared for publication Thursday – revealing that the clinic itself was built to mask, and perform, potential acts of terror on the IDF.
“Moreover, the clinic was built over tens of terror tunnels, according to the report.”
Three times in this war alone (yes, it’s happened before), rockets have been discovered in an UNRWA facility and UNRWA staff don’t know how it got there.
But eighty kilograms of explosives built into the walls of an UNRWA clinic? Tens of tunnels built under an UNRWA clinic? So far UNRWA has had no response, likely because there is nothing they can say without further implicating themselves.
Please help make sure large numbers of people know about this (you will NOT find it in your mainstream media).
There is a great deal more to say about Hamas and how it is functioning, all of which needs to be put out broadly. I will following with more in coming posts.

Cruz Wants GOP House Members to Oppose Boehner Immigration Bill
Cleaning House in Missouri City, Texas
By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
State Rep. Ron Reynolds, D-Missouri City, and David Hamilton, his Republican challenger in the House District 27 race.
The Democrats are just itching to solidify their hold on Texas. We’ll just see about that… In Missouri City, Texas a race is brewing that is the epitome of reputable vs. corrupt. The incumbent is facing felony charges – lots of them. Here is a list of 47 (!) “bad acts” etc. that the State of Texas plans to present against Texas state Rep. Ron Reynolds in his upcoming felony trial. Come on Texas! You are so much better than this guy. He needs to be swept out of office.
State Rep. Ronald Eugene Reynolds, D-Missouri City, is a personal injury attorney in Harris County. And his alleged crimes include fraud and not paying fees among a host of other things. He will be standing trial for a whole slate of criminal and civil charges for his alleged involvement in an elaborate kickback scheme. What a peach huh? You would think the media in the Lone Star State would be all over this dirt bag. But not much is being said or written on it, so I am bringing it to our reader’s attention. This race is important in Texas, which must not go Progressive Blue. If we lose Texas, we lose the nation, so transparency and sunlight are needed to expose these corrupt bureaucrats. Enter David Hamilton (same name as my brother-in-law — no relation), a small business man who wants to run in order to restore ethics and true conservatism to the House District 27 seat.
Hamilton is an underdog in an area that historically (God knows why) votes Democratic. I am calling on all conservatives in that area to come out and help David Hamilton. Even if you have never been directly involved in politics before, this is the time — virtually all of our futures hang in the balance and it is a way to give back to and restore our great Republic.
According to reports, Reynolds is an ambulance chaser extraordinaire. He’s also an arrogant scummy politician:
A grand jury indicted Reynolds last fall on 10 counts of barratry for illegally offering legal services to accident victims within 30 days of the incidents. Often referred to as “ambulance chasing,” barratry is a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in jail and disbarment.
Reynolds says he’s not concerned by the election challenge, or his upcoming trials. In a phone interview this week, the representative, who was first elected in 2010, was matter of fact about his case.
Are you now, sir? Typical Progressive move to use religion as a shield. Bullcrap. This is a test to prove you are a lying criminal and need to be removed from office. And there is so much more to the scandal:
An affidavit filed in Montgomery County District Court says Reynolds was one of eight attorneys in the Houston area paying Robert Valdez Sr., 48, to scour accident reports for victims and get them to sign contracts to be represented by the different attorneys.
The arrangement came to light when one of Valdez’s workers anonymously tipped off the Montgomery County district attorney’s office. The informant described how they would download and print accident reports from the Houston Police Department’s website, then attempt to contact the not-at-fault driver using the address and phone number listed.
In that call, the informant said they read a script telling the person all he or she stood to gain from insurance – a rental car, medical bills paid for, even a personal injury check for up to $6,000. For those they didn’t reach by phone, they visited their homes and left a business card. They then set up appointments for Valdez to come to their homes, where he would show them their police report and have them sign one of the attorney’s contracts for representation.
Valdez is currently serving a five-year sentence for his role in the arrangement.
Of course Reynolds is denying all of it, protesting he is innocent and working at his law firm as if nothing has occurred. It says something about a man when he doesn’t even have the inner workings to feel ashamed that not only what he has done is wrong, but that people see him as a lowlife. Like any good sociopath, this does not phase him in the least evidently. It will just all pass. He’s claiming political motivation concerning the charges against him. I highly doubt that… it’s just good ole corruption Texas style. Texans have a chance to clean house of this wretched debris… time to step to it pardner. On August 11th, his trial will commence and the DA looks forward to it:
In response, Kelly Blackburn, the assistant Montgomery County district attorney trying the case, said he “has no concern about the local politics of Fort Bend County. The fact that he is a Democrat, Republican, independent or a member of the Green or Tea Parties is of no concern to us, and we look forward to the time when we can present all the facts in an open forum during the trial of this case.”
That won’t be Reynolds last shot at infamy either. He’ll be back in court on September 15th for a civil case that the State Bar of Texas filed in Harris County alleging professional misconduct in connection to the barratry scheme. Somebody has been a very bad boy and has evidently been caught with his dirty fingers in the cookie jar. But it is not his first go around, oh no. He’s been publicly sanctioned twice by the Bar Association for professional misconduct. He was also arrested in 2012 when he got stung in an undercover operation spearheaded by the Harris County DA’s office. It would seem a chiropractic firm was getting patients to sign contracts that named Reynolds as their legal counsel before they were ever examined or had even met him. Shyster doesn’t quite cover it, does it? Well, those charges were dropped. Two of the investigators came under scrutiny for allegedly stealing evidence in other cases. How convenient. But where there is smoke, there is fire and you can bet Reynolds is no altar boy.
Hamilton is anti-abortion, which makes him a very good guy in my eyes and a conservative. He’s even been sued by Eric Holder for violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act – a case that was settled in 2013. And that makes him a patriot with a spine in my opinion. I wish I lived there just so I could vote for him. But since I don’t, I am appealing to those of you out there who can support him. The Republican organization there would do well to throw their support and funds behind his campaign. It’s a no-brainer, unless of course you like dirt bag, ambulance chasing Progressive attorneys running a district in Texas.
Here is David Hamilton’s site. Campaign for him, vote for him… at the very least, donate to him. He’ll fight for smaller government, for energy independence, for spending less and for Constitutional values. Time to clean House in Missouri City, Texas.
Our Media Are Lost in Putin’s “Shadow World”
By: Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media
The usually astute Jake Tapper of CNN aired a story on Tuesday about “global exasperation” with Vladimir Putin over Ukraine. The consensus was that Putin is in trouble, not the West.
Tapper played an old clip of George W. Bush, who once called Putin “straightforward” and “trustworthy,” saying that the rising price of oil had “changed” the old KGB spy. Still, journalist David Remnick was shown saying that Putin’s aggression had only succeeded in putting him in a “box.” He wondered how this “isolated” Russian leader would find “a way out of this.”
So there’s really no reason for Americans to be alarmed or afraid. And as President Obama says, “No, it’s not the new Cold War.”
Perhaps it would be advisable for the media to examine the views of those experts who had argued all along that Putin was an enemy of the United States. One of them was Robert Chandler, author of the 2008 book, Shadow World. Chandler, who was a good friend of this writer, passed away in 2010.
His monumental 600-page work, which is still available from Regnery, examines the Putin game plan, which he called a “geopolitical offensive” against the U.S. and its allies. A military strategist, intelligence officer, and professor, Chandler also wrote about how Obama’s domestic political agenda would undermine our ability to resist the assault on America. His 2009 special report for AIM, “How Obama Revolution Came to America,” is still a must-read.
“Russia’s prodigious oil and natural gas supplies presented a potential opportunity to make the country an energy superpower,” Chandler wrote. This is why Putin made his move on Ukraine, figuring that the West would fail to stop him.
However, Chandler noted that Putin realized he needed Western help to make this succeed. In the 1990s, the Russian economy began to look, in some ways, like capitalism, and capitalists were in fact investing in Russia. It was then that a decision was made by the KGB to manage the transformation of the new “democratic” Russia. A former KGB lieutenant colonel named Vladimir Putin was seemingly brought out of nowhere to lead the “new” Russia. Eventually, more than 6,000 former KGB officers followed Putin into office.
“Even before Putin was elected president on March 26, 2000, he ordered a monument and plaque commemorating Yuri Andropov [the former KGB chairman who became President] be returned to their former places of honor at the headquarters of the Federal Security Bureau (FSB),” the KGB’s successor, Chandler reported.
Chandler’s book was ignored by the liberal news media because he was not judged to be an academic expert working for a prominent think tank. But many in the media also looked the other way as the dead bodies piled up. These included Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya, who was murdered in 2006 after warning about the KGB’s return to power, and KGB dissident Alexander Litvinenko, who was poisoned to death in London after warning that Moscow was behind some acts of alleged Islamic terrorism in Russia itself.
In another part of the book that is coming true in dramatic fashion, Chandler described how Putin considered China, India and Iran as his “strategic partners.” Russia, China and India, with Brazil and South Africa, today make up the emerging and powerful BRICS alliance of nations. They have defended Russia’s military aggression in Ukraine.
Iran is a separate case, but is ruled by an Ayatollah who was trained in Russia by the KGB.
Some other key points from Chandler’s book on Russia:
- Putin in 2007 made a policy decision to build up the Russian military forces, including with new weapons.
- In January 2008 the Russian Navy held its first major maritime exercise in fifteen years.
- In February 2008 Putin openly declared that Russia would emerge on the world stage as “a state that can stand up for itself.”
- Putin signed multi-billion dollars arms contracts with China, India, and Iran.
- Putin “moved to increase foreign intelligence collection” about the intentions and secrets of Russia’s adversaries.
- Putin sent long-range bombers to Guam in August 2007, to challenge the U.S. naval base on the island.
- Russia and China conducted an eight-day military exercise, “Peace Mission 2007,” with other members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. (Iran is an observer state.)
- Russia staked a claim to the seabed under the North Pole, an area with potentially billions of barrels of oil and trillions of cubic feet of natural gas.
- Russia established a strategic partnership with Communist China, in order to counter the power and influence of the U.S.
- Putin accused the West of trying to replace the U.N. with NATO.
In retrospect, Chandler accurately described Putin’s game plan as it has dramatically materialized on the world scene.
For example, the fact that Putin “moved to increase foreign intelligence collection” is a development that clearly came to fruition with the defection to Russia of NSA analyst Edward Snowden. It also helps explain NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen’s statement that Russian agents have been working with the “green” movement to prevent Western nations from exploiting their own energy resources.
The Russia-China alliance moved forward in May of this year when Russia’s Gazprom signed a 30-year deal with China National Petroleum Corporation that is said to be worth over $400 billion.
Although Obama said on Tuesday that the U.S. and Europe had agreed on new economic sanctions against Russia, there are questions about how effective they will be. Germany, in particular, has been reluctant to confront its “partner” Russia, because the country is so dependent on Russian oil and gas.
This, too, was predicted by Chandler, when he wrote that the Europeans “do little more than wring their hands” when Russia uses economic warfare against them.
In his book, he wrote, “As the storm clouds rise again to the east of Europe, the capitalist West is floundering. The refusal by Americans and Europeans to recognize that the post-Cold War party is over and their failure to develop a common strategy, vis-à-vis an energy muscular Russia is self-defeating.”
Yet, Obama says there is no new Cold War. It’s almost as if he wants Americans to remain asleep.
