Trump Sends Warning to Mexico After Its Soldiers Draw Guns on US Troops in US: ‘Better Not Happen Again!’


Reported By Jack Davis | Published April 24, 2019 at 10:21am

President Donald Trump sent Mexico a warning Wednesday in response to an incident in which Mexican troops reportedly pointed their weapons at U.S. troops.

“Mexico’s Soldiers recently pulled guns on our National Guard Soldiers, probably as a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers on the Border. Better not happen again! We are now sending ARMED SOLDIERS to the Border. Mexico is not doing nearly enough in apprehending & returning!” Trump tweeted Wednesday.

On April 13 near Clint, Texas, two U.S. Army members were conducting an operation very close to the Rio Grande, which marks the official border between the two countries.

“[F]ive to six Mexican military personnel questioned two U.S. Army soldiers who were conducting border support operations in an unmarked [Customs and Border Protection] vehicle near the southwest border in the vicinity of Clint, Texas,” the Department of Defense told CNN.

Although the American troops were on U.S. soil, they apparently drove past a border fence that the Mexicans thought marked the boundary, while the incident actually took place just north of the official border. The foreign soldiers pointed weapons and confronted the Americans, even temporarily disarming them. The confrontation was resolved peacefully, officials said.

“After a brief discussion between the soldiers from the two nations, the Mexican military members departed the area,” Northern Command said in a statement, according to Army Times. “The U.S. soldiers immediately contacted CBP, who responded quickly. Throughout the incident, the U.S. soldiers followed all established procedures and protocols.”

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, said there was probably more to the story than a simple geographical mixup, according to Fox News.

“These things don’t just happen by accident,” he said. “I don’t know one Border Patrol agent that is going to accept that story that the Mexican military thought that these national guardsmen were in Mexico.”

“We have hundreds upon hundreds incursions by the Mexican military into the U.S., yet we have very few incursions by Border Patrol agents into Mexico,” he said.

The Washington Examiner reported that the incident has triggered a review of the rules for American forces patrolling along the Southern Border. An official whose name was not given said the incident “will help us modify any instructions that we’re giving the troops” about unexpected encounters with Mexican soldiers.

Trump on Wednesday also demanded Mexico take action to block a caravan of migrants from ever reaching the U.S. border.

“A very big Caravan of over 20,000 people started up through Mexico. It has been reduced in size by Mexico but is still coming. Mexico must apprehend the remainder or we will be forced to close that section of the Border & call up the Military. The Coyotes & Cartels have weapons!” Trump wrote.

Mexico said Monday that it detained 371 migrants. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said human traffickers have infiltrated migrant caravans, requiring an active response from Mexican officials.

“We don’t want for them to just have free passage, not just out of legal concerns but for questions of safety,” he said.

Scam of the Century: Scientific Study Destroys Electric Car Debate


Reported By C. Douglas Golden | Published April 23, 2019 at 9:49am

If you think you’re saving the environment by driving a Tesla, well, let me let you in on a bit of a secret: You could perhaps emit less carbon if you went with a diesel car. The findings of a new study by a group of German scientists seem counterintuitive at first. They found that electric vehicles in their home country accounted for more emissions than those smoggy diesels. Until, that is, you realize that “zero emissions” vehicles aren’t really so zero emissions.

“When CO2 emissions linked to the production of batteries and the German energy mix — in which coal still plays an important role — are taken into consideration, electric vehicles emit 11% to 28% more than their diesel counterparts, according to the study, presented on Wednesday at the Ifo Institute in Munich,” the Brussels Times reported.

“Mining and processing the lithium, cobalt and manganese used for batteries consume a great deal of energy,” the report said. “A Tesla Model 3 battery, for example, represents between 11 and 15 tons of CO2.

“Given a lifetime of 10 years and an annual travel distance of 15,000 kilometres, this translates into 73 to 98 grams of CO2 per kilometre, scientists Christoph Buchal, Hans-Dieter Karl and Hans-Werner Sinn noted in their study.”

When you factor in the energy needed to charge the batteries, this ups that total to 156 to 180 grams of CO2 per kilometer.

The study’s authors recommended that instead of pushing for the adoption of “zero emission” electric cars, European officials should instead move toward other sources of power for automobiles — namely methane, “whose emissions are one-third less than those of diesel motors.”

This, by the way, is hardly the only study that’s questioned whether electric cars are really as environmentally friendly as their proponents claim. A 2017 study by researchers at the University of Michigan found that the amount of CO2 emitted by electric cars varied wildly by country, but it certainly wasn’t zero.

“The report — authored by Michael Sivak and Brandon Schoettle — notes that an electric car recharged by a coal-fired plant produces as much CO2 as a gasoline-powered car that gets 29 miles per gallon,” Investors Business Daily reported. “(For context, the average mpg of all the cars, SUVs, vans and light trucks sold in the U.S. over the past year is 25.2 mpg.) A plug-in recharged by a natural gas-powered plant is like driving a car that gets 58 miles per gallon.

“Solar, wind and geothermal do far better on this score, but they generate a small portion of the nation’s electricity. More than 64% of electricity is generated by coal, natural gas or other fossil fuels.

“The U of M researchers calculate that, given the energy mix in the U.S., the average plug-in produces as much CO2 as a conventional car that gets 55.4 miles per gallon.”

That’s not terrible, but it’s not great, either. And keep in mind, the cost of electricity goes up the more renewables you throw into the mix, which dissuades people from adopting them.

For other countries, the cars fare even worse. In China, which has been pushing widespread adoption of electric vehicles, the cars put out as much CO2 as a car that gets 40 miles per gallon.

“And even this exaggerates the environmental benefits of electric cars because the report doesn’t take into account the additional CO2 emissions involved in making batteries,”the IBD report said.

“A separate study from the Union of Concerned Scientists found that, depending on the type of plug-in being built, manufacturing a battery-powered car generates anywhere from 15% to 68% more CO2 emissions than a conventional gas-powered car,”the report said. “The reason is that producing the batteries is incredibly energy intensive.”

Now, if you like owning an electric car, that’s fine. But if your reason for owning it is that you think you’re doing the environment a favor, you’re wrong. The idea that these vehicles have “zero emissions” might be one of the biggest scams of the 21st century, particularly given how expensive renewable energy currently is. No matter what owners of these vehicles may believe, smug can’t eliminate smog.

SHOCKER: CNN Blames Obama for Russian Collusion


Reported By Tiffany Layne |

#Obama, #TeamKJ, #KevinJackson

We wrote an article a while back asking Leftists to at least consider the idea that Democrats attempted a coup against President Trump.

Because Leftists are incapable of thinking they are wrong, I needed to “bitch-slap” them into what I know to be the reality: Democrats tried to set Trump (and satellites) up.

Many now come to that conclusion. Despite the con job currently underway by Adam “I have more damaging info on Trump” Schiff’s protestations otherwise. Things have turned on Democrats in a bad way.

And we see it with what fake news CNN admitted recently in an op-ed:

The Mueller report flatly states that Russia began interfering in American democracy in 2014. Over the next couple of years, the effort blossomed into a robust attempt to interfere in our 2016 presidential election. The Obama administration knew this was going on and yet did nothing. In 2016, Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice told her staff to “stand down” and “knock it off” as they drew up plans to “strike back” against the Russians, according to an account from Michael Isikoff and David Corn in their book “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump”.

Apparently Obama was busy striking a nuclear deal with Iran. At least that’s how some people want to frame it. Personally, I think a lot more than a nuclear deal kept Obama’s attention.

Criminal in Chief

I recently stumbled across a list of 78 times Obama violated the constitution or broke federal laws.

Upon the most interesting entries, Obama illegally armed both Mexican drug cartels and ISIS militants. The same day Obama called for stricter gun control, he authorized a shipment of guns to the Syrian opposition. And to add another layer of criminal activity, Obama engaged in racketeering when he pressured banks not to do business with gun stores. Talk about sending mixed messages.

Of course, not all his crimes related to guns. Obama used the IRS to target conservatives. Obama also ordered Boing to fire 1,000 employees for being non-union. Further, Obama terminated his Inspector General after it was discovered that Obama’s friend was embezzling money. Then Obama raided Gibson guitar factory because it’s owned by a Republican.

I don’t even want to start in on ObamaCare and the lies and deceit it embodies. But I will mention the Obama Administration had hundreds of meetings with lobbyists at coffee shops so they could avoid the required disclosures. He also used off-the-books funding for various military endeavors. And on his way out the door, Obama released violent terrorists from Guantanamo Bay. Not surprisingly, more than half of them went right back to attacking us.

In fact, Obama was so busy committing crimes against America, it’s no wonder Obama didn’t have time to hold the Russians accountable for their meddling in US elections.

But has anyone heard from Obama since the Mueller report came out? Of course not. Because if he addresses the nation, questions will be asked. Instead, Obama will stay out of the spotlight and leave it to his cronies to make excuses.

CNN Continues:

Obama’s supporters claim he did stand up to Russia by deploying sanctions after the election to punish them for their actions. But, Obama, according to the Washington Post, “approved a modest package… with economic sanctions so narrowly targeted that even those who helped design them describe their impact as largely symbolic.” In other words, a toothless response to a serious incursion.

But don’t just take my word for it that Obama failed. Congressman Adam Schiff, who disgraced himself in this process by claiming collusion when Mueller found that none exists, once said that “the Obama administration should have done a lot more.” The Washington Post reported that a senior Obama administration official said they “sort of choked” in failing to stop the Russian government’s brazen activities. And Obama’s ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, said, “The punishment did not fit the crime” about the weak sanctions rolled out after the 2016 election.

Obviously, we know Obama was as crooked as a Clinton. The only real surprise here is that CNN finally admits the only collusion happened on the left.

Funniest Graphic Memes on Mueller Report (so far)


Published By Kevin Jackson |

The creativity of Conservatives never ceases to amaze me. We just don’t do a good job of getting the word out.

While Leftists comedy hacks pretend to that Trump is the bad guy, we know the truth. So I love it when we turn our humor on them. 

Below are various graphics dedicated to mocking the real MORONS in America: Leftists. Most of these are dedicated to the Mueller Report.

We begin with a theme from Goodfellas. Classic movie, classic mock!

Next, we get “Liberal Tears”.

Just look at the flooding!

In keeping with the “Liberal Tears” theme, Rachel Maddow doesn’t disappoint.

Who knows what she was really pretending to cry about, but the release of the Mueller Report ranks up there with her episode on Trump’s taxes.

Flashback to Maddow “exposing” that Trump paid MILLIONS in taxes. Check out how she vamps, trying to protect the audience from “Al Capone’s” vault, ergo NOTHING!

Back to the Mueller Report memes.

The next meme is dedicated to Pelosi. Somebody cleverly gave the Democrats another potential “collusion” story.

But let’s not forget, Pelosi was counting on Mueller.

#TeamKJ, #KevinJackson, conservative memes

And then there is another possibility I doubt few people even considered.

Mueller is a RUSSIAN MOLE!

There is another off-topic consideration of Mueller.

Is he Luke Wilson’s FATHER?!

And speaking of daddies…

Back on topic: Clever Mueller Report memes.

One intuitive thinker believes he knows the origin of the Russian collusion theory. OR as the graphic suggests, where Leftists can stick it.

Here’s one of my favorites. Because it reminds me of how Clinton supporters look on election night 2016.

Listen carefully to the sound of “whining”!

How about a graphic that really cuts to the chase?!

Two years and $30 million later for Robert Mueller to serve Democrats a “nothing burger”. Understand that we all knew this was the case, but Leftists didn’t listen.

And how about when Conservatives mix lame ideas to come up with jewels.

Such is the case where the creator of this meme mixed the ban on plastic straws with what the Mueller Report gave Democrats: no hope!

In a take-off of an earlier meme, where the creator offered that Mueller IS Russian. This clever person decided to go more conspiratorial.

The next meme points to the futility of the Democrats.

Now America knows that the Democrats have no bounds in targeting Trump. Recently Schiff all but admitted that Trump was innocent. So he then declared that Trump should be targeted because he’s “not patriotic”.

No wonder somebody created this meme.

In what is sure to please those who watched Scooby Doo as children, in this meme Mueller reveals the real culprit.

I love that this meme fits the reality of the Russian collusion narrative.

Next, we get a meme that sums up what the Democrats don’t want America to know.

And what a take on their overworked saying, “a threat to our democracy”. It’s a Constitutional Republic, Democrats!

Finally one from our own staff.
