“Where’s the Beef? Is anyone ON the Border?

"Hey, what’d ya do that for?"
"Because you were on fire, fool!"

From the ‘Gunbelt Report’ : An opinion open to challenge, but we think this one ‘nails it’.

"The 14th amendment does not apply to those who have illegally entered, that is to say they entered in such a way, time, and place so as to AVOID being subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. Obviously, to pass thru a Port of Entry is to subject oneself to the authorities there, as well as to any law or scrutiny applied, and not even the most basic of public concerns, such as being sick and contagious with Plague, is detected by crossing the border elsewhere. Therefor no child of illegals has any such rights under the 14th amendment; all such prior presumptions to the contrary by the local or U.S. governments have been in error if not by corrupt intent of garnering votes."

LOCHEIL, Arizona Aug. 30th Around this time last year, we enjoyed the heck out of our prospecting expedition and camp-out on the border for a few weeks, learning much, meeting the neighbors from ‘both sides’, and dedicating ourselves to be in the position we are today -grateful to have achieved our vision of our mission. One glaring hole in the big picture, even after speaking at length with one of the ranchers near Mowry and after all the news and political bandwagoning around the (Cattleman’s) Ranchers’ Association meetings and "Press Conferences" {much the focus after the Krentz murder}…is their conspicuous lack of communication. I HAVE YET TO SEE THEIR 18 Point Plan to ‘secure the border’, nor Kyl-McCain’s piggyback 10 point plan!
It would seem that they would be very public asking for support and/or security volunteers, but they seem to have, instead, assumed some fearful secrecy, for some unknown reason.

We have spotlighted the voices crying to the Feds to do the job of securing and controlling the border…INSTEAD OF staging possible gunfights with intercepted smugglers all over our backyards. We support the position that if any gunfire is introduced into our neighborhoods, we will respond with overwhelming firepower ON BOTH PARTIES, bringing the foolhardiness and public endangerment to an immediate and permanent halt.
In that regard, too many ranchers are still subject to suspicions & questions: Of what worth are you; Can you justify your business existence with statistics of what your production means to the local economy? Where’s the product? Is there any Southern Cochise or Santa Cruz County Organic short-grass open range [San Rafael Valley] BEEF AVAILABLE LOCALLY? Why do we NOT SEE any ads or find local ranchers’ products to buy? Are these ranches JUST FRONTS for multi-million dollar smuggling route toll-road schemes? How did you come to own such large spreads, and how did you pay for them?; or, would you still be in business without Federal Grazing allotments?
It’s reasonable to suspect, with the market & economy as it is, that some ranchers have been & still are willing to supplement their income ANY WAY THEY CAN, including, it appears, conceding to the message from a PALOMINAS rancher who was beaten by smugglers, and told to pass the warning to the other ranchers: Worst would happen if they intercepted the smugglers. In spite of the warning, and without alerting others or asking for help, the day before Bob Krentz was killed, they seized some 300 lbs of pot ON HIS RANCH …and BP consequently released four smugglers UNDER THE 500 Pound Rule. I don’t believe that any legitimate cattle ranch production can begin to justify the losses, repair the damage, nor restore the economy or PEACE which has been harmed across the Nation by the unfettered safe passage you ranchers and cowardly Border Patrol have aided & abetted by years of failing to resist or stop the criminals. It’s not at all absurd to think that a better use for these ranches would be as marijuana plantations, taking care of the whole flock of birdbrains, pulling the black market out from under the cartel, employing many locals, and boosting the economy with multiple valuable products & sustainable agriculture. It would have been much easier to trust and support these mysterious ranchers if they would just operate openly and publicly.
I can understand being ashamed of being a cattle rancher, beef cattle being so damaging to the land, and the biz being one of the laziest, and most surviving off Public Land grazing permits that are unjustified subsidies which cost them entirely too little per cow, and which give them way too much control over Our Public Lands under their give-away lease from the BLM.

But NONE among them (and even more surprising, B.P.) have pursued public awareness of Cartel observation posts on their ranches, or of the locations of smuggling trails, nor of the identities of smugglers and mules. The obvious lack of unified, organized, private security forces deployed by the ranchers means this: They care more about their cows and their smuggler-provided benefits, and their "separate peace" with the cartels than they do about ALL the communities across America suffering from drug and crime-gang violence + murders.
They, and Border Patrol, have not, and will not ever do anything [or it would have been done by now] -not even SPEAKING UP- to change this Nation-breaking invasion and attacks.  With "defenders" like these is it any surprise we consider them lower than cowards, unreliable as traitors, untrustworthy as the criminals they have failed to challenge & oppose? It would seem to be counter-productive and a flaw in National Security to continue to allow cattle ranching within the border war zone while some theater of National Guard ON THE "FENCE" plays out…  Too bad they don’t just send a few BRAINS instead. Plastic UV fluorescent tagging burrs, like micro toy ‘jacks’ spread along the border would embed themselves into the shoes & sneakers of border-crossers, making it all too easy to stop traffic: Tag! You’re IT!  Crushed fluorescent minerals, like those from Franklin, New Jersey, could be dusted into the dirt or sprayed across the landscape with no environmental impact, and likewise would tag the passers-by in a way they could not detect or counter.
So, as the National Guard "deploys" along the ‘Gunbelt’, we await the inevitable CONFLICT with the Mexican "Army", ZETAS, or other players we are way too familiar with, [expect an ambush on the naive] there is only the sound of gunfire to be awaited upon, heralding only the wider public’s surprise & experience of war we have lived with and the escalation to full-tilt conflict we have seen coming, heavy weapons always handy. It is expected, anticipated, planned, prepared for. What will be different this time is that WE WILL NOT ALLOW THE COWARDS TO RETREAT, we will be behind them, ready to help if they perform their duty or need us as reserves…but also ready to exercise The Green Valley Rule: You FOOLS on both sides {Yes, that also means you, treasonous Feds…we’d like you to leave AZ} may die for bringing this unnecessary war with you, and the Prohibition that caused it, into our Peaceful lives, into our own public lands, and worst of all, into our yards! YOU SHOULD HAVE TAKEN & HELD THE BORDER LONG AGO.
 There will be blood. This is ‘No Country for Old Men’ just as in the Cohen Brothers Film!
Militias, vigilantes, independent sovereign citizens, as long as there is all this Federally abandoned Public Land, formerly the Coronado National Forest, and Ranches For The Taking -it would seem that many mechanisms are available to turn the balance of power against the corrupt, the cartels, and the traitors…such as…just find some drugs on their ranches while they are present and seize the place, the bank accounts, the vehicles & assets, on behalf of the citizens, & hand over the players to the County Sheriff, and appoint yourselves as stewards while taking adverse possession….Homestead, here we come!
