Danger near Maricopa, AZ: The face of drug and human smuggling. . .


















































Within 20 minutes of the City of Maricopa, there exists a major drug and human smuggling superhighway. Most locals have heard of it, but don't really give it a second thought. People are routinely murdered and thousands of pounds of marijuana pour through this area.

Often times, this criminal traffic passes through Maricopa and surrounding areas at all hours of the day and night. Some of your neighbors are probably involved in this activity, too. After all, it takes criminal elements on both sides of the border to facilitate this sinister enterprise.

Unfortunately, most people are tuned out, apathetic, disconnected and/or ignorant of life in the real world. They see only what the government and media wants them to see. They are nothing more than "sheeple" living in a bubble. Those like myself, prefer to see things first hand.

We can't trust the media and we certainly know the government lies to us all the time. Us "citizen volunteers", using limited funds have carried on a campaign of counter drug and human smuggling patrols and intelligence gathering. We have seen many successes.

In doing so, many valuable photographs have been taken that reveal the actual faces of drug smugglers. Many of these individuals wear matching camouflage, maintain clean shaven faces and short hair. Some of these individuals look more like Mexican Army than civilians. Perhaps, they are both. What are they doing 70 miles north of the Mexican border? I can guarantee you, nothing good!

Department of Homeland Security to evaluate criminal deporting program

The Department of Homeland Security will conduct an internal review of a controversial federal immigration-enforcement program that has led to the deportation of thousands of immigrants in Arizona to determine whether the program has strayed from its primary goal of removing dangerous criminals.

DHS inspectors also plan to look into a burgeoning controversy over whether Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials falsely misrepresented the Secure Communities program as voluntary to persuade counties and states across the country to participate.

While Janet Napolitano and her bungling bungholes at the DHS are busy evaluating who knows what, our southern border is being over run by drug smugglers, criminals and perverts. We already know that the incompetent Mexican government doesn't want their low life criminals back. Apparently, there are too many for them to handle.

Southwest Border HIDTA Arizona Partnership

Mission Statement: The mission of the Southwest Border HIDTA Arizona Partnership is to facilitate federal, state and local multi-agency task forces and other partnerships to increase the safety of Arizona's citizens, by substantially reducing drug trafficking and money laundering, thereby reducing drug-related crime and violence.

We've seen a myriad of studies and programs that consume millions of dollars of OUR tax dollars that do absolutely nothing. In reality, boots on the ground is what it will take to secure the border and free us from the tentacles of the drug cartels.

We have proven this beyond question. With minimal resources, volunteers can put a dent in the border problem. Hopefully, the government will eventually take this problem seriously and send the many of thousands of troops that we need to protect OUR country from harm.

I'm certain, that after many more millions of dollars are spent getting nothing done, Janet Napolitano will get up and say, "Our border is more secure than ever." Suburbanites, a.k.a. "boobas americanas ignoranus", will be too busy cooking on their BBQ grills while locked away in their gated and guarded communities to know any different. Those of us who live behind enemy lines, know the real score.

In the comment section, "BobA" couldn't have said it better, "Obama is on the side of the smugglers and illegals."

We attended the Maricopa Tea Party. . . and didn't get kicked out.



















































Tuesday, May 17, 2011, 2130 hours: My friend, Thora and I have returned from the tea party gathering in Maricopa. Nobody recognized us and we didn't get kicked out. Sheriff Paul Babeu walked up to me following his speech, tapped me on the shoulder and said, "I appreciate it, brother."

The gathering was indoors and it was a standing room only crowd. Since we arrived early, we had seats within 10 feet of the speakers.

The speakers focused primarily on the economy, adherence to the Constitution and the seriousness of the illegal immigration problem this country is facing.

There will be another meeting on June 1, 2011. Those that registered at the meeting will receive email notifications.

The 912-Tea- Party- Project Pinal County

The Pinal Tea Party Patriots a non-partisan group of Americans who consider it our duty and dedicate our lives to becoming more active with their civic duties, seeking knowledge about the political process, keeping up to date on current issues, protecting the Constitution, state sovereignty, defending free market principles, reducing spending and taxes, and electing quality American public officials that will adhere to these ideals, regardless of party affiliation.
http://the912projectpinalcounty.ning.com/

The event was recorded and is slated to be aired on KGVR 1610 AM, Grande Vision Radio. Until last night, I was unaware that Casa Grande had a radio station.

It appears that Steve Smith has a few critics that resulted is the following inflammatory piece.

Arizona senator Steve Smith gets caught spreading bogus information from hate group FAIR with ties to white supremacists

“In 2009, 14,400 babies were born in Arizona to parents of illegal aliens. The average price to deliver is about $7,500 in hospital that AHCCCS bills for. That’s $108 million spent simply on birthing of illegals in Arizona per year.”
http://tucsoncitizen.com/three-sonorans/2011/04/09/state-senator-steve-smith/

The pro illegal alien bias in this article is laughable.FAIR is not a “hate group,” but I guess when you’re losing the illegal immigration debate, you scream racism and spew lies. This is the “anti” standard operating procedure. It's nothing more that grade school mentality name calling. Unfortunately, their target audience has the same mentality.

After Action Report. . . Operation: Wile. E. Coyote















































Sunday, May 15, 2011 1340 Hours: I have just returned from the three day Multi-organization illegal immigration and counter drug smuggling patrol known as Operation: Wile E. Coyote. The operation was a success. Many people, new to the illegal immigration and smuggling problems, received first hand instruction in activities and tactics known to be used by the drug cartels in the Sonoran Desert National Monument and other well known smuggling corridors.

Unknown to us, our operation coincided with a multi-law enforcement agency operation involving aircraft utilizing thermal imaging. Law enforcement, namely the Arizona Department of Public Safety, attempted to "re-direct" us to the Sawtooth Mountains, north of Tucson. We refused to re-locate some 100+ miles and stood our ground in the Vekol Valley drug corridor south of Interstate 8.

I was aware that the Pinal County Sheriff's Office and the BLM had cleared out the area around Sawtooth, near the Ironwood Forest National Monument. Sawtooth Mountains is a Range in the state of Arizona (county of Pinal), located at latitude - longitude coordinates (also known as lat-long or GPS coordinates) of N 32.62312 and W -111.74346.) A PCSO tactical team swept the area over a week ago in advance of a BLM litter clean up project and that we would not likely see any action there. This was an outright attempt to neutralize our volunteer efforts.

We were accompanied by other militia groups and the US Border Guard. Also in attendance were women and an 80 some year old USMC Korean War Veteran from Kansas. During the patrol, we participated in briefings and educational seminars on heat related illness, tracking techniques and drug smuggler modes of operation.

Shortly after arriving at the base camp, identification cards belonging to a man from Chile were discovered under a rock. This evidence further reinforces that OTM's (other than Mexicans) are pouring over our southern border.

Terrorist threat on border with Mexico OTM who else is coming over our border?

OTM (Other Then Mexicans) this report shows we have a threat on our border!

DOUGLAS, AZ -- The U.S. Border Patrol uses choppers, ATVs and horses to patrol the 2000-mile border between the Southeastern U.S. and Mexico. Agents say most of the illegals caught crossing are from Mexico or South America. Still, they say thousands of people caught are classified as O.T.M.'s, which stands for "Other Than Mexican". They report that includes hundreds of people from nations that sponsor terrorism.

Channel 2 Action News anchor Justin Farmer traveled to Arizona to view adetention center near Phoenix. He viewed records that show illegals in custody from from Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Sudan and Yemen.

_who_else_is_coming_over_our_border.htm

On Saturday afternoon, elements of the US Border Guard discovered a small party of drug smugglers approximately 15 miles northwest of our base camp. Two were taken into custody by authorities. Some video of this event may be available in the not too distant future.

Cooperation, sacrifice, dedication and teamwork, all contributed in making this operation a success. Hopefully, we'll be conducting another such operation later in the year.

The Death Cult of the Drug Lords Mexico’s Patron Saint of Crime, Criminals, and the Dispossessed

The Santa Muerte cult could probably best be described as a set of ritual practices offered on behalf a supernatural personification of death. The personification is female, probably because the Spanish word for death, muerte, is feminine and possibly also because this personification is a sort of counterpart to the Virgin of Guadalupe. To believers, the entity exists within the context of Catholic theology and is comparable to other purely supernatural beings, namely archangels. The cult involves prayers, rituals, and offerings, which are given directly to Santa Muerte in expectation of and tailored to the fulfillment of specific requests.
http://fmso.leavenworth.army.mil/documents/Santa-Muerte/santa-muerte.htm#intro

According to Mexican author Homero Aridjis, “Santa Muerte not only protects (the criminals) from betrayal and ambush, but also can be an agent in their favor against enemies, causing them harm, or death.” She is a “virgin saint in the religion of crime.”
