According to Democrats, there is absolutely no threat at the Southern Border.
However, cartel in Neuvo, Laredo just attacked the Mexican military.
Recently, we brought you the story of “El Tory.” The infamous criminal was sitting in a Mexican jail for his brutal attack on the US Consulate in Monterrey.
In fact, military intelligence considers this man one of the most dangerous and powerful members of the Los Zetas Cartel. People say he has more than 45 murders to his credit, and at least 14 of those are decapitations. But despite his lethal resume, El Tory bribed his way to freedom only to take control of the Mexican border in Neuvo Laredo, just across from Laredo, Texas.
Oddly enough, I don’t see Nancy Pelosi planning a move to Laredo. Yet, she sits on her high horse insisting these threats are figments of Trump’s imagination. Meanwhile, conservatives are counting the days until the first attack.
Unfortunately, we need not worry when the first attack will happen. Gunmen from Los Zetos ambushed the military near the Texas border. Sadly, one army lieutenant died and two more were seriously injured just south of Laredo, Texas.
As Breitbart elaborates:
Mexican military officials have not released any information on the attack, however unofficial sources with direct knowledge revealed to Breitbart News the attack took place along the highway that connects Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey. Moving in various SUVs, a team of gunmen with the Cartel Del Noreste (CDN) faction of Los Zetas attacked a convoy of soldiers patrolling the streets of Nuevo Laredo.
Citizen journalists using the Twitter account @Lpueblo2 or La Voz Del Pueblo (“The People’s Voice”) warned residents away from the Palmares neighborhood when the ambush began. A video recording shared by @Lpueblo2 captured the sounds of the clash as the two sides exchanged gunfire.
Under the leadership of convicted terrorist Hector Raul “El Tory” Luna Luna, the CDN has once again advanced their tactic of silencing local news outlets to keep the organization out of public view. None of the local news outlets in Nuevo Laredo reported on the weekend shootout. El Tory, the operational leader for the CDN, is wanted in the U.S. for a grenade attack against the American consulate in Monterrey. The CDN is working to inspire terror throughout the border states of Tamaulipas and Nuevo Leon by dumping ice chests with human remains and written threats to rivals.
Nancy Pelosi refused to fully fund the border wall needed. So, Trump took matters into his own hands. Friday, he declared a national emergency in order to access the billions needed for the wall.
As the New York Times reports:
“We’re going to confront the national security crisis on our southern border, and we’re going to do it one way or the other,” [Trump] said in a televised statement in the Rose Garden barely 13 hours after Congress passed a spending measure without the money he had sought. “It’s an invasion,” he added. “We have an invasion of drugs and criminals coming into our country.”
The very same article insinuates Trump manufactured the border crisis for election purposes. Of course, this is just another piece of the media bias plaguing Trump’s White House.
In fact, in a move that may be career suicide, CBS’ Lara Logan recently stepped forward, expressing disdain with current media bias. The 60 Minutes correspondent openly acknowledges today’s news landscape is skewed to the left. In fact, according to Logan, you have to dig deep to find the other side these days.
Futher, Logan explains media bias to the left isn’t isolated to the United States.
Visually, anyone who’s ever been to Israel and been to the Wailing Wall has seen that the women have this tiny little spot in front of the wall to pray, and the rest of the wall is for the men. To me, that’s a great representation of the American media, is that in this tiny little corner where the women pray you’ve got Breitbart and Fox News and a few others, and from there on, you have CBS, ABC, NBC, Huffington Post, Politico, whatever, right? All of them. And that’s a problem for me, because even if it was reversed, if it was vastly mostly on the right, that would also be a problem for me.
My experience has been that the more opinions you have, the more ways that you look at everything in life — everything in life is complicated, everything is gray, right? Nothing is black and white.
Critical Thinking Lost
The sad fact is that this left-leaning bias is so prevalent, it erases critical thinking skills. If a person were to google “Trump manufactures border crisis,” hundreds or results populate. Thus, people are naturally fooled into seeing those results as some form of truth.
It’s the old “strength in numbers” adage. And it’s crippling our nation.
Logan points out:
How do you know you’re being lied to? And how do you know you’re being manipulated? How do you know there’s something not right with the coverage? When they simplify it all [and] there’s no grey. It’s all one way. Well, life isn’t like that. If it doesn’t match real life, it’s probably not. Something’s wrong. For example, all the coverage on Trump all the time is negative. … That’s a distortion of the way things go in real life.
One ideological perspective on everything never leads to an open free diverse tolerant society. The more opinions and views … of everything that you have, the better off we all are. So creating one ideological position on everything throughout your universities, throughout academia, in school and college, in media, and everywhere else, that’s what concerns me. I don’t have to agree with everybody.
Logan added, “Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense — or at least the effort — to be objective, today. … We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that.”
Unfortunately, in this case, the left leaning media bias isn’t just a philosophical let down. It presents real, present danger to our nation. As “El Tory” stands across the border, glaring at us, we know without a doubt his next move will only take more lives. Unless Trump gets to him before he gets to us.
