The Center for a Secure Free Society held a news conference the other day about the roles of Russia, China, Venezuela, and other countries in flooding the U.S. with illegal aliens. Mario Duarte, Secretary of Strategic Intelligence for the Republic of Guatemala, spoke at the event, calling the caravans and their impact on U.S. border security the “weaponization” of refugees.
The term “weaponization” was also used by NATO’s top commander in Europe, Philip Breedlove, to describe what the Russians and Syrians were doing in the Middle East with the Islamic refugees there. Germany’s Angela Merkel has welcomed these refugees, destabilizing Europe. Here, President Trump campaigned for office on the basis of stopping the flow of this weaponized migration into the U.S. Objectively speaking, Merkel – and not Trump – has been serving Russian interests.
The popular reality TV show “Border Wars,” on the National Geographic Channel, captures the determined efforts of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, ICE, DEA, the U.S. Coast Guard, and local law enforcement to keep our nation safe. They fight terrorism and apprehend drug smugglers. They also intercept people entering the United States illegally. These illegal aliens have become a weapon of war, just like in the Middle East. A border wall would be another line of defense.
Venezuela, Russia, and Cuba
Participants in the SFS news conference said the evidence shows that Venezuela, propped up by Russian and Cuban forces, and Chinese loans, has been financing the caravans, as part of a plan to destabilize the United States. The security experts also said Russia practices strategic deception. That is, they focus our attention on one thing when they are busy causing trouble somewhere else. Indeed, the weaponization of the refugees of Latin America can be seen as an explanation for “Russia-gate” – the notion that Trump was a Russian agent. It was a masterstroke by the Russians. The disinformation has led to almost two years’ worth of investigations, by a special counsel and Congress, into Trump’s political, personal, and business dealings. As all of this was unfolding, the Russians were up to no good south of our border, as thousands of illegal aliens have flooded our country, some marching in caravans. It has been Trump, the alleged Russian agent, who has pushed back against the Russian plan.
Center for a Secure and Free Society (SFS) participants David Grantham, Director of Intelligence for the Tarrant County (Texas) Sheriff’s Office, and Joseph M. Humire, Executive Director of SFS, were reluctant to admit in interviews with this columnist that Russia-gate was a strategic deception operation. They did not want to admit what is now being reported openly by NBC News – that a two-year Senate intelligence committee investigation has uncovered no evidence of Trump conspiring with the Russians.
The Russia-gate investigations, including the one by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, have the earmarks of a Russian disinformation operation, carried forward by the Democratic Party, to divert the attention of our nation from what really matters – Russian meddling in Latin America. We know that Russia-gate was conceived in Russia, in the form of the fake Russian dossier on Trump, and was used by the losing political party in the 2016 presidential election as a means by which the Democrats intended to delegitimize Trump.
Except mainly for proceedings involving Trump friend Roger Stone and Jerome Corsi, and their possible connections to WikiLeaks, a Russian asset, it is apparent that Russia-gate prosecutor Mueller has come up empty on the issue of direct Russian influence on Trump. Still, whether WikiLeaks had Russian connections or not, the Democratic Party emails that were released were legitimate and newsworthy. They were embarrassing to the 2016 Hillary for president campaign. Mueller’s team also obtained a guilty plea from a Russian woman whose apparent purpose was to infiltrate the NRA. That’s interesting but hardly evidence of the Trump campaign working with Russia.
One can now see that the impact of the investigations wasn’t to produce a case against Trump, but divert attention from the real Russian plot to flood the U.S. with refugees after a period of destabilization south of our border. Remember that former President Barack Hussein Obama was indifferent or even sympathetic to the plans by socialist Hugo Chavez of Venezuela to form an anti-American bloc in Latin America. Obama even recognized Communist Cuba, signaling acceptance of “socialism” by the United States.
Obama is the Russian Mole
If any U.S. president has been a Russian agent, it was Obama. He was raised and mentored by a Communist Party member, Frank Marshall Davis, and as president facilitated Russian and Communist operations throughout Latin America by treating Venezuela, Cuba, and Brazil as worthy experiments in socialism. It’s interesting to note that Marxist former presidents of Brazil Lula and Rousseff were allies of Obama but have since been impeached or thrown into prison. An anti-communist alliance of nations, including the U.S., Colombia, and now Brazil under Jair Bolsonaro, is making a mark. But in Venezuela itself, as a result if Obama’s policies, the only real “alternative” to Maduro, the successor to Chavez, is another socialist, Juan Guaido.
The lessons have to be clearly understood and the implications of what we know have to be stated in stark terms. One of the key players in Russia-gate was Obama’s CIA director John Brennan, who, interestingly enough, voted for the Communist Party USA when it was funded by Moscow. Finding out how this security risk was hired by the CIA and how he became CIA director would go a long way toward understanding the nature of the Deep State and why Trump is today suspicious of findings from intelligence agencies such as the CIA.
History shows that at the same time that Russia-gate was unfolding, Russia, China, and Venezuela were causing trouble in Latin America, producing not only millions of refugees (3 million from Venezuela alone), but directing thousands of them in caravans on their way to the U.S. southern border. It was Trump, all along during this entire process, who was exposing and standing up to the real Russian plot to cause conflict and chaos in Latin America. While some of these migrants have sincere motives and seek a better life, Mario Duarte, Secretary of Strategic Intelligence for the Republic of Guatemala, cited evidence in his talk of how Islamic extremists are infiltrating the caravans. Has the FBI been paying attention to this? Or has it been too busy plotting to remove President Trump and sending a heavily-armed SWAT team to apprehend Roger Stone?
