When we read stories like the TSA’s new 72 hour waiting period for travel and the fact that TSA is cross-referencing all US travelers with terror watch lists, we have to wonder what the purpose is.
Is this about securing America, or is there an ulterior motive?
We only ask because if the federal government, intelligence agencies, border patrol and TSA were actually serious about securing Americans, then we’d have already installed a border fence, deployed National Guard troops to secure the border and taken an offensive approach at preventing illegal immigration.
Had we done so, then Michael Hartley might still be alive:
Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez, Jr. tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS armed pirates shot at a McAllen couple on Falcon Lake this afternoon. The husband and wife were jetskiing near Old Guerrero.
On their way back to shore, pirates in a boat pulled up next to them and started shooting at them. The husband was hit, possibly in the head. The woman tried to save him and ended up being at shot as well. She had to turn around and leave her husband in the water. She fears he’s dead.
It is unclear whether Mr. and Mrs. Hartley were in U.S. or Mexican waters at the time of the incident. The mouth piece of mainstream media, the Associated Press, suggests that the a chase began in Mexico and came to a deadly end on U.S. sovereign territory:
A Texas sheriff says armed Mexican bandits chased an American boater into U.S. waters after shooting her fleeing husband in the head.
Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez also says the bandits probably plucked 30-year-old David Michael Hartley’s body from Falcon Lake after the ambush, or let him sink so no evidence of his death remains.
Hartley and his wife, Tiffany, were riding their personal watercrafts from Mexico toward Texas when about six gunmen approached in two boats. Gonzalez says the ambushers shot Hartley as the couple sped away.

There are two separate issues that need to be addressed by Congress:
- Border Security
- Illegal Immigrants already residing in the U.S.
Though the establishment would have us believe these are one in the same, they are completely independent of eachother in terms of execution of policy directives.
First and foremost, we must secure our borders. Based on actions by our federal government to make air travel and transportation a security priority, it is asinine to not secure our borders. The very fact that American citizens are coming under increased scrutiny by the federal government and Mexican nationals crossing into the U.S. are being allowed to enter unimpeded, suggests that the purpose here is to further erode privacy and liberty – not to provide for the safety of Americans.
In recent days, European media reported that an Al Queda cell operative was captured and alluded to the possibility of multiple, coordinated attacks on Europe and potentially the United States. Our leaders in Washington made every effort to assure the American people they are doing everything possible to keep us safe.
Really? How about that 2000 mile hole on our southern border? Who, in their right mind, would think only illegal immigrants looking for work and citizenship for their unborn children are crossing through there?
Either there is no actual foreign threat of terror against the United States or the politicians in Washington simply do not care about our safety and are implementing these domestic security measures for other reasons. How else can we explain the lack of meaningful action in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California?
