Borderland Beat: Mexican Cartels Buying Afghan Heroin

Borderland Beat: Mexican Cartels Buying Afghan Heroin.

Mexican Cartels partnering with Iranian Qods Force to move Afghan heroin into the United States should be a matter of some concern.  The Iranians have a serious problem back in Iran with opium and heroin addiction.  Diverting some of their domestic traffic towards the Great Satan would be popular.

Qods Force with Mexican Drug Cartel help could get almost anything into the U. S.

Civilian irregular auxiliary paramilitary organizations are a favorite topic on this blog.
The Romans had auxiliaries.
The American Legion has an auxiliary.
The United States Air Force has an auxiliary.
The United States Coast Guard has an auxiliary.
Why doesn’t the Border Patrol have an auxiliary?
There is a Border Patrol Auxiliary, but the Border Patrol doesn’t want much to do with them. I suspect the National Border Patrol Council, American Federation of Government Employees, AFL-CIO thinks Dumbass Amateurs are not the solution to any problems they want solved.

John Fasano, writing in the September, 2010 Soldier of Fortune article “Amnesty on the Horizon,” describes BPAUX using much the same language as Jake Boot did at BigJournalism last April.

Fasano’s last two paragraphs:

Over 1,000 illegal immigrants a year cross into the United States in and around the area patrolled by BPAUX. They cross, but most don’t get far because the auxiliary stops them. This is real political action. These men and women (from 18 years old up to WWII vets in their late eighties) are trying to uphold the rule of law.

But they are just a volunteer force. Their members come from all walks of life, all economic strata, men and women coming down on days off from work, vacation days. One grandmother was a member of AARP — “Armed and really pissed” that her country is being annexed and her government is allowing it to happen.

Airframe Testing

Found this at Digger’s Realm

I think we probably need to hear from Dvorak and/or Digger on this about now, perhaps to man-up and admit they were snookered.
This is probably a case of air-frame testing. Bill Cooper used to talk about it and it’s in “Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars”. You send a little shock through a system and record the data. The shock was a (most likely) bogus news story and the system was the online patriot/militia community. Follow the contacts back to Dvorak and Digger and then their “sources” and you’ll solve your whodunnit.

Remember William Cooper on WWCR shortwave radio in 1994? Was he a nut case, or just too far ahead of his time?

The Arizona Border Operation, Summer 2010

RETRANS for maximum dissemination:

Mark Harvey of The Snooper Report and Pat Dollard are spearheading a summer border operation in Arizona. Much of the operation needs to remain confidential, but a component of it is the interdiction of narco-insurgents and illegal aliens, in tandem with other citizen’s groups and law enforcement. Another component of it will be the reporting and publicizing of our activities, and the activities of others, during the long, hot weeks ahead.

I’m going to be very straightforward and plain-spoken about this: what we’re doing is serious, dangerous, and expensive. We need your help. Whatever you can do, in whatever amount (and if not in money, then in services, material or prayers) is greatly appreciated, and greatly needed.

If you live in Arizona and would like to volunteer your services, or can get here to do the same, please send me an email via the contact button at the top of this and every page. If you would like to donate any ammo, weapons, or gear, please do the same, and specify.

Thank you.

Make a donation today to help finance Pat Dollard and Mark Harvey’s Summer 2010 Arizona Border Operation.

For larger donations, or if you simply prefer to use snail mail, make your check or money order payable to CMSU, LLC, and send it to:

CMSU, LLC
6501 E. Greenway Parkway #103-448
Scottsdale, AZ 85254

End RETRANS.

Dig deep. Times are tough all over. Few can pack up and take off for Arizona and be of much use. Many can send money which will be useful. Aren’t you tired of feeling powerless?

UPDATE:

Posted this comment at Pat’s blog, but it’s not there anymore:

Unsolicted advice: don’t call your AZ Border Operatives militia.
How ’bout Autodefensas Unidas de Arizona? That ought to get you plenty of linkage in the lefty blogosphere.
I’m going to be very straightforward and plain-spoken about this: what we’re doing is serious, dangerous, and expensive.
Then the Sheriffs in your AO probably would just as soon you stayed home.
You’re a great Civilian Irregular Information Operator, Pat, so Strategic Communications has counterpropaganda product in the can to refute charges from those who don’t want the border secured, right?

Potential Public Affairs nightmare here for any Sheriff who overtly coordinates with and incorporates Civilian Irregular Border Operatives into their County law enforcement assist organizations. Sheriffs are politicians, and Irregulars who really want to be useful need to provide Sheriffs with some plausible deniability.

Ever wonder why the Coast Guard has an Auxiliary but the Border Patrol doesn’t?
Probably for the same reason COCHISE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE SHERIFF’S ASSIST TEAM Members DO NOT take enforcement action, carry weapons, or make arrests.
Probably for the same reason Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Community Service Volunteers will not be armed and will not carry any kind of weapon.
Probably for the same reason Gov. Brewer hasn’t tried to recruit an Arizona State Guard .

IDF Field Intelligence Corps Showcases Spot and Strike System, 3 Mar 2010 (via Israel Defense Force Spokesperson)

About the Pinal County Sheriff’s Deputy Shot Last May

Tapes Released Of Border Shoot-Out

Pinal County Arizona could use some help, but much of the “help” volunteering are more trouble than they’re worth, like the fat Nazis in ACU’s blundering about the desert last weekend. Truly helpful help cannot involve Pinal County or the State of Arizona in any lawsuits.

What they really need won’t be publicized. Low-profile, unobtrusive, plausibly deniable Listening Posts/Observation Posts on private property with night vision devices and effective communications. Who pays for the gear? Either the volunteer out of his own pocket or the land owner, perhaps with financial contributions from concerned citizens or the Arizona Stock Growers Association. Armed or unarmed in accordance with the land owner’s wishes. If armed, armed for personal defense only with weapons commonly in use among the legally armed citizens of Arizona. Observe and report. Exfil at BMNT. Leave no trash. TAKE NO CREDIT. Let the land owner and/or the Sheriff take the credit for any successes. That will get the volunteers invited back and appreciated for what they accomplish.

Cough It Up, Patriots


This is your fight, too.

Currently Arizona faces many legal challenges to its recently passed laws dealing with border security and immigration. Arizona is proud to defend these laws which are aimed at protecting its citizens and the great State of Arizona and will be very aggressive in their defense.

Undocumented Civilian Irregular Border Patrol Auxiliaries

Christina Boomer:  I think the word militia scares people.

Cowboy Doug:  Well, what do you want to call them?  We could call it the Cochise County Social Club, OK?  I’m sure you could outrun any of us, you know, you look in better shape.  We’re just the eyes and ears, you know, that’s the big deal.  We’re just trying to help the Border Patrol.

Bill Davis: All we can do is be a glorified neighborhood watch.

Christina Boomer:  What do you think is the biggest misconception about your group and what you do?

Bill Davis:  Like I said before, being called names.  Mercenaries, wannabes, Rambos, vigilantes, whackos, storm troopers, neo-Nazis.   We’re not a racist group, we’re not a hate group.  How can you hate a 26-year old woman with a five month old baby in her arms that just walked twenty-six miles with no water?

I’ve blogged about CCM before. Their very existance is propaganda of the deed calling the attention of We The People to the failure of the Federal Government to perform its Constitutional duty. The CCM has powerful enemies who think the border is just fine thank you very much, and these enemies will do whatever they can to discredit, devalue and demonize CCM in the public mind.

I thought Bill Davis screwed the pooch talking about PMC’s and “confirmed kills.” I think this video proves evolution in CCM’s competence at Militia Information Support Operations.

Militia = Nazi – Old and Moldy Propaganda

The Reno, NV Gazette-Journal has a website upon which they posted yesterday, Citizen militia wants to protect the U.S. from smugglers and drug runners (watch video report) which if you read the accompanying text is a fairly straightforward regurgitation of a story from last April about Arizona’s Cochise County Militia, then the text encourages the reader to watch a video which has nothing to do with Cochise County, or Bill Davis, but does have a fat Nazi in ACU’s that KPNX NBC Channel 12 in Phoenix AZ wants to make the face of Civilian Irregular Border Protection Auxiliaries.

This is conflation.

It works.

The Bright Lights of Cochise County

The Cochise County Militia’s founder and director Bill Davis is planning to form a “private military company” that would not work for money, according to Tim Steller of the Arizona Daily Star.

A volunteer, unpaid PMC is an oxymoron to me.  PMC’s don’t work for free.

Now Davis and his colleagues are planning to offer “commercial military services” to border-area property holders. The volunteer militia’s paramilitary squad would work at the landowner’s request “providing security & trespasser interdiction” and would not shy from a confrontation, he wrote in an e-mail.

“We comply with any law possible and then some. But we’re not about to step aside anymore and let them through. We’re going to turn them around and send them back scared,” Davis said.

The squad would consist largely of U.S. military combat veterans, already a significant contingent of the group Davis formed in 2001, he said.

“They all have confirmed kills, from Vietnam or later on. They’re not wannabes who go out and buy a set of camos and go out in the woods with a rifle,” Davis said.

Confirmed kills my ass. Are they all snipers?

Send them back scared? Intimidation. Lawsuit. Wonder how many land owners are up for that liability? Didn’t Ranch Rescue fail?

Cochise County has a Sheriff Assist Team, but the CCM wants to be armed. Something tells me that Sheriff Dever knows all about the CCM, and has pretty good reasons for not deputizing and pinning stars on every one of them.

My advice to CCM would be change your name, delete your website, and operate individually or in small teams on the property of whatever landowners will have you.

Rhodesian Farmers Defensive Arrangements

9) Some farmers also hired soldiers on leave to guard their premises at night. Usually these were men looking for extra “beer” money. They were called Bright Lights, and often ended up in fire fights with the terrorists, where they came as a nasty surprise to the terrs when the latter were expecting a nice soft hit and run. Like all farmers in an area, Bright Lights would participate in the support of other farmers when the situation required.

I hope 30 years from now we’re not reading about The Rancher At War.

I Must Have Been Getting The Better of THAT Argument

Delete my comments, Chirol, and I’ll just post them on my own blog.

The discussion was about  local or state approved volunteer self-organized militias for border control

  • Is not maintenance of the territorial integrity of the Republic an inherently governmental function?

    The Federal Gov’t secures the border too well for lefties who want to grant amnesty to millions of illegals and register them to vote for Obama in 2012, while other Americans want their favorite Westphalian nation-state defended from invasion, and its sovereignty respected.

    Border states could, if the failures of FedGov drove them to it, deploy State Defense Forces, State Guards, and Sheriff’s Posses to augment the Border Patrol, perhaps even Relieve In Place in some sectors. Such measures would be resisted by those who do not want the border secured, and the State and County volunteers derided as Dumbass amateurs

    //

  • Cochise County Militia ready to patrol

    //

  • FemBots Roam The Desert

    Israel controls its borders. They are willing to use deadly force against invaders and unwelcome border crossers at unauthorized border crossing points. An illegal border crosser of the United States border is guilty only of a misdemeanor.

    Virtual Border Watch

    //

  • Israel is also a tiny country with borders far easier to control. Moreover, there is no excuse for deadly force against peaceful immigrants who simply want a better life for themselves. That does not mean we should let them in. But deadly force is only justified for self defense and the only cases in which this would be legitimate on the border is against criminals and smugglers.

    //

    • Peaceful immigrants who simply want a better life for themselves, or invaders?

      To be sympathized with and aided, or to be defended against?

      Illegal border crossing at unauthorized border crossing points is a crime, albeit only a misdemeanor at present, so whoever commits such acts are petty criminals and smugglers, smuggling themselves.

      Israel is a small country, but their borders are no easier to control than ours. They are just much more serious about it than we are.

      //

  • Immigrants motivated by economics and quality of life are not invaders. If you think so then you need to go and study an English dictionary.

    And if you believe shooting unarmed people is justified then you have no business either carrying a weapon or defending the border.

    Moreover, it’s just absurd to think that Israel’s borders are no easier to secure than ours. Israel is about the size of New Jersey. To even suggest it is as difficult to patrol that versus the thousands of miles of US border shows a complete lack of common sense and logic.

  • I responded, but Chirol deleted my response.  I went to ComingAnarchy and posted this:

    invader

    Main Entry: in·vade
    Pronunciation: \in-ˈvād\
    Function: transitive verb
    Inflected Form(s): in·vad·ed; in·vad·ing
    Etymology: Middle English, from Latin invadere, from in- + vadere to go — more at wade
    Date: 15th century

    1 : to enter for conquest or plunder
    2 : to encroach upon : infringe
    3 a : to spread over or into as if invading : permeate <doubts invade his mind> b : to affect injuriously and progressively <gangrene invades healthy tissue>

    synonyms see trespass

     

    in·vad·er noun

    He deleted that, too.

    I’m reconstructing the comments deleted  from Rethinking the United States from memory.  The first deleted comment included the above definition of invader and continued thusly:

    Should we really care what their motivations for entering the country illegally are?  Does it matter that the first act these potential new Americans did was to violate our laws?

    Try walking in to Area 51 sometime and see if they don’t shoot you because you were unarmed.

    Is the United States of America worth defending?

    If it is, unpleasant things will occassionally happen to vulnerable people who tug at our heartstrings.  Shooting a beautiful Latina with a cherubic babe in her arms and another one in the oven is hard to do, but rules are rules, right?

    I think that’s the part that got him.

    Am I seriously advocating the cold-blooded murder of innocent Mexicans who merely want a better life? Chirol seems to think I am.

    Is he seriously advocating forming militias to control the land frontiers of the United States? I thought so yesterday, when I took him seriously.

    The other comment he deleted was a simple link to The Battle For America. Notice the map at that link. Where the red touches the border is where subnational paramilitary border protection elements might have a chance.
