A month has passed and it is with great sadness that I report that another great patriot and protector of our porous southern frontier has relocated. I want to thank the Secure Borders Intel Watch Adviser for introducing me to Bob Maupin many years ago. My life was the better for it. I feel both sad and blessed at once.
A great article about Bob can be found here:
Rollin’ the border road from Red Shank to Cherry Stem will never be the same.

Rest In Peace Bob
How technology, international partnerships, and the political landscape are impacting the flows of people along our southwest border
This just in from SBI:
“Cameras recovered in Arivaca, AZ show changing trends in smuggling activity. Marijuana smuggling is making a return despite increased legal access in the US. Small self guided groups of illegal aliens are making their way north using a network of well placed and maintained water and food supply caches left by groups operating under the guise of humanitarian aid. Larger groups are still carrying their own supplies on unchecked trails (little to no Border Patrol activity observed). Cartel scouts are working openly in the daylight. No border fence exists along this 25 mile stretch of border. “
Why limit giving to just one season? Please help the families of agents who gave their lives protecting our nation’s porous frontiers:
God Bless Y’all and God Bless America
This from the crew at SBI:
“Cameras placed in Arivaca, AZ reveal changes in smuggling traffic including groups travelling between prearranged water caches allowing them to leave their usual day packs and water jugs behind. Walking on roads shortens their trip and reduces elevation changes. This is not a new technique but seems to be used almost universally compared with past groups who used more concealed trails. Groups of presumed scouts with binoculars and at least one carrying a rifle were also noted.”
I must admit I dropped the ball on this repost. It came into my inbox several weeks ago and I failed to see it.-C1
I received the following email last night 1OCT19 forwarded from another longtime friend, border warrior and patriot:
It was a privilege, honor and also just plain fun to have been able to work the border, go shooting and hang out with ol Shorty. He did his country proud and will be missed.
Rest In Peace Shorty
I keep waiting for one of the talking heads on radio and TV, right wing or left, to mention this and no one does. Not even Rush or “The Great One” who normally are way ahead of the game have brought up the following scenario:
If (or when) the United States takes action against Iran, Iran will activate sleeper cells already in this country.
These terrorists have been streaming into this country one way or another for years if not decades.
The terrorists are patient.
America is complacent.
(Democrats are complicit)
The terrorists are determined.
Americans are in denial.
These bad actors have been here for years. It would not surprise me if they didn’t have nukes here as well. Common sense tells us Iran has had some nuclear capability for years, despite what the media might say or politicians might want the public to believe.
I’m not saying that we shouldn’t take action against Iran. I’m just saying that when I hear someone like Hannity saying the President will act swiftly and decisively and that there will not be a prolonged war or “boots on the ground” he’s talking about over there…..
I’m talking about here.
The talking heads never follow up with the consequences likely to happen in the homeland when the world’s greatest state sponsor of terrorism activates operatives that at some point strolled across our porous southern frontier virtually unchecked.
Did you really think that thousands of swinging dick, military age males from all over the world just wanted to sneak into the country for a better life?
WAKE UP AMERICA!
You can’t stop what’s comin’ -we already let it go too far…
But we can be ready
Vocatus alque non vocatus,
Enjoy your freedom while you can for if the price of freedom is eternal vigilance then America as we knew it is not long for this world.
By allowing the third world to invade our homeland in droves?
By allowing corrupt solicialist politicians to dictate policy?
WAKE UP AMERICA!
Hopefully we can all take time out from our vacations and BBQs to remember just why we have Memorial Day. And while we pause in honor and remembrance of those who fought and died fighting for our freedom please don’t forget those brave men and women of the United States Border Patrol who valiantly gave their lives on the soil of our very homeland protecting the porous frontiers of our country.

It has come to my attention that those of you who have subscribed and receive notification of each post have been getting blank screens punctuated with blue lines. I realize now the malfunction is due to my own endeavors to make links to pertinent news articles more visible. The default color when I add a link is blue, which is hard to read when looking at the blog. So in an effort to make the links more easy to see I changed the color of the links to white. While this made the links more readily visible while viewing them on the blog itself, on the notifications the links appear against a white background MAKING THEM INVISIBLE as in the example below:
The links were there, You just couldn’t see them! I have since changed the color of this links to orange. This does nothing to notifications you have already received but future blog post notifications should be visible. Let’s put it to a test. Below is a link to a news article regarding an area of the border I just visited.
Please email me or leave a comment and let me know if you are not able to see the link above.
I apologize for any frustration or inconvenience this may have caused.
Thanks to Beast for drawing this to my attention.
And thanks for your support.
God Bless Y’all and God Bless The United States Of America.
Don’t know where to start….. I would say Happy Easter but I’m not really feeling too happy about it.
Or, as in the past, I would pay tribute to the Texans who fought so valiantly at San Jacinto on this day, the 21st of April, winning freedom from Mexico for Texas back in 1836.
That freedom is steadily being lost. For Texas and indeed for the entire United States of America. Or what’s left of it…
I am so tired of Mueller and the “deep state” and all the serious corruption news that proliferates the airwaves. It is but a diversion. Is it serious? YES! But even if they brought all THE REAL GUILTY PARTIES to justice today, and I seriously doubt they ever will, I fear it matters not. Because all the while ten of thousands of illegal aliens are streaming into the country virtually unchecked. Nothing of any consequence is being done about it. The Border Patrol is stretched to the max. The interior of the country is flooded already and the invasion continues unabated. The health of the country is compromised with thousands of sick immigrants. The integrity of our precious voting rights is undermined with millions of illegal aliens who have and will cast ballots. The criminal justice system is burdened with criminals from other countries who shouldn’t even be here and who’s first acts in America was to break the law.
If you piss in the soup long enough pretty soon it’s no longer soup……
I continue to get emails from the good people I have met in my nearly fifteen years of volunteering on the border. Here’s a couple I received just last week from two different Patriots who live on or near our porous southern frontier:
“Just talked to the Border Patrol. They are picking twenty plus a day on
the ranch. Looks like old times. They are picking up my fence and
pushing the people through under it. They are too short handed to have
people patrolling the G road.”
Last Tuesday, 16APR19 on the border in New Mexico near Texas:
The following day, 17APR19, I drove down to Eagle Pass, TX. At high noon in broad daylight, in the middle of town, groups were forming and crossing despite high BP presence. I watched one group form across from the boat ramp at the end of Main St.
Not believing that they would actually try to cross the river, which was up substantially from my last visit and moving swiftly and right in the middle of town, I quit watching them and decided to investigate this road:
No sooner than I rounded the bend I caught this guy struggling against the current pulling a rope which was tied in Mexico and if tied to the Texas side would provide an easier way to get a group across the raging Rio Grande.
I called it in as he turned around and swam back to the other side. I regret that I wasn’t fast enough to snap his picture as he flipped me the finger from the other side.
To brave that current the man definitely had the potential to make the Mexican Olympic swim team.
An Agent responded and we chatted for just a second then he said he had to hurry to the boat ramp. Seems the group I had watched forming had come across as soon as I left. As did many others.
Driving back I listened to conservative talk show hosts go on and on about how now the parties who were really guilty of Russian collusion will be prosecuted and how the corrupt officials in the FBI and DOJ will be indicted and brought to justice. But even if that proved to be true, and again I doubt that it will, what difference will it make if the country has been “fundamentally changed” from within? If but a small fraction of those who shouldn’t be in this country cast a ballot in the next election will any of it matter? The highest priority should be to not only stop the invasion but expel the millions of illegals who are already here. The bright side, if there is one, is that if Democrats ever control the Presidency and both houses of Congress again the economy will tank and people may stop streaming here for the millions of jobs Trump has created.
Either way spells DOOM.
When will you WAKE UP AMERICA???
This is happening all along the border, all day and night………WAKE UP AMERICA!
What’s it going to take to wake you up AMERICA?? Will it have to happen in your own yard? I have news for you it already is. I received this email from an old friend in Southern California yesterday. Below it is the follow up I just received today. Our country is being flooded and infested with infected, felonious future Democrats. WAKE UP AMERICA!

Subject: My Sunday Morning
So much for a relaxing Sunday morning. While getting my coffee ready the alarm on my driveway goes off. In my bathrobe I go out to see the cause. Soon I notice an individual not in a BP uniform walking around the property. I get a description of his clothing and make a call to the Border Patrol. Before they can arrive the individual starts making his way towards the house. Quickly dressing I grab my Glock going out to confront him. Carrying it openly by my side and very obvious I ask what he wants. He asks for a ride and says he can pay. When told no he asks to make a call on my phone and I tell him I have already called for someone to help him and start to escort him down the driveway. About that time BP arrives and takes over. Chatting with the agent he says they have been swamped with over half the illegals crossing having respiratory diseases and requiring medical attention causing 46% of the agents encountering them to become sick as well. I asked about the effectiveness of the razor wire being strung on the existing fencing and was told it isn’t much of a deterrent and is being cut and taken into Mexico. We need a proper fence or wall. Also found out that the catch and release of the illegals is a total joke. They are given ankle tracking bracelets and taken to the bus station with the promise to appear for court appointments. The bracelets are cut off, thrown in the trash and these folks disappear into the community with whereabouts unknown. So as of this morning, one down and 13 million to go (just hopefully not on my property).
Have a great day and stay safe,

Gosh I was feeling the slightest bit of remorse for the individual I turned in. He told me he had 5 children and was here from Guatemala looking for work. He had asked me for help saying he needed a ride to Vista and was willing to pay me all the while saying what a kind person I seemed to be. Then I got a phone call this morning.
“This is Agent XXXXXX and I responded to your call yesterday and wanted to give you a follow up. We have turned the individual over for Federal prosecution as he has been deported before and has an extensive criminal record of Assault, Alcohol, Drug and other offenses. You made a good call and Thanks”.
That makes 8 arrested in my front yard just this week alone. Be Safe
PS- If you haven’t read CAMP OF THE SAINTS I advise you to do it now- IT”S HAPPENING AS WE SPEAK
This video just in from Secure Border Intel. Other invasion news links below.
Thanks to Gadget Dan for the comment below and the link to the article about the stolen wire. My thoughts are below the link. Thanks for checkin out the blog.-C1
Lol 😆That was a given. I predicted that happening weeks ago! As one military individual (installing the Concertina wire) was quoted saying – “the real Engineers are on the South side of the Border”! If the Government wanted the Concertina wire to be an effected barrier, they would have attached the wire on the North side of the Fence / Vehicle Barriers (below the top), not on the top – any moron could have figured that one out, but then again, we are talking about Government / Politicians doing what’s best for our Country and People’s Security – little chance of that happening! Build the Wall / Enforce the Law! Dan 🤨
Below is an email with pics from another Campo CA local who has long been impacted by the steady invasion from the south. Looks like some long overdue progress is being made. Thank you President Trump. But much more needs to be done. Don’t stop now!
Thank you “Horsepuckies” for the update and for your service to our country.
The news of the present day March 6th was just as alarming:
I could add link after link. But after fleeing the Democratic Peoples Republic of California in September of 2018 I have been little more than a keyboard warrior and really not even much of that. So, after paying my respects at the Alamo, I headed for the border.
I made my way down the the Rio Grande in Eagle Pass
There I was greeted by some of America’s Finest
They told me just about anywhere along the river there was as good as any for observing and reporting the invasion. I found evidence of this everywhere along the bank.
I found many promising areas to sit and perhaps set cameras. Then I pushed on up to Del Rio.
I followed this fence line many yards from the river
Until I crossed another line of sorts
Dismissing brief second thoughts I pushed on to a neighborhood with properties which back right up to the river.
Some of the homes were very nice
And some not so nice
This road went on several miles until it veers away from the river. I turned around there and went back past the point where I came in and poked around on trails leading down to the Rio Grande where there are no homes. There was not near the amount of human detritus as I had found in Eagle Pass, at least not in the very small area of Del Rio I had patrolled. However, as I was leaving, I passed a Border Patrol vehicle with no agent in it and then a BP K9 unit passed me and Omaha flew in. Maybe I flushed out some illegals.
Or maybe I just tripped a sensor and they were lookin for me……..
And maybe they should because
I’ll be back
WAKE UP AMERICA!
“Human Wall” Volunteers Rally
on the Texas Border
in Support of President Trump
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 1, 2019
Press Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Volunteers form ‘Human Wall’ Protest at Texas Border to Support Trump’s Emergency Declaration
Ongoing volunteer border security operation launches at 12pm, Saturday, March 2, 2019, in Eagle Pass, TX.
Public Support Rally and Press Conference to be Held at 2pm, Sunday, March 3, 2019 in Shelby Park (public park right on Rio Grand) in Eagle Pass, TX.
As reported by Breitbart.com, Oath Keepers, Bikers for Trump, and Latinos for Trump have organized a “human wall” volunteer border security operation and public rally on the border in Texas this weekend in support of President Trump’s Emergency Declaration, and in support of an upcoming Texas legislative border security bill being proposed by Texas State Representative Kyle Biedermann.
The volunteer security operation will start at noon on Saturday, March 2, which is Texas Independence Day. Oath Keepers, an organization of military, police, first responders and dedicated patriot citizens, is taking lead in organizing the border security vigil which will place volunteers along highways parallel to the Rio Grand to serve as volunteer eyes and ears to spot and report suspected illegal entry into the U.S., reporting directly to CBP and Texas DPS. While the operation begins on March 2, it will be an ongoing operation that will continue in indefinitely. There will also be a rally this weekend on the border in California. See details here.
The public rally and press conference is planned for 2pm-5pm on Sunday, March 3, 2019 in Shelby Park, in Eagle Pass, TX.
TX Rep. Biedermann is the keynote speaker for the press conference and rally.
Other speakers will be:
Stewart Rhodes, Founder of Oath Keepers
Chris Cox, Founder of Bikers for Trump
George Rodriguez, Latinos for Trump
Lauren Morris, ACT for America
Alfredo “Freddy” Arellano (18 year old Maverick County GOP Chair)
Dr. Alma Arredondo-Lynch (border rancher and dentist)
Bret Bousman, Dimmit County GOP Chair
We support strong border security, support President Trump’s Declaration of a National Emergency on the border, we encourage Texas Governor Abbot to likewise declare an emergency in Texas to support the President, and we support TX Rep. Biedermann’s Texas border security bill.
We consider March 2 a fitting day to launch this operation in defense of Texas as it is Texas Independence Day, and we will duly honor the memory of the defenders of the Alamo, both Anglos and Tejanos – Texas patriots all – who fought together until the Alamo fell on March 6, 1836. In honor of their memory, we also support Rep. Biedermann’s monument protection bill. Learn more about this issue here.
We will be livestreaming from both events, Saturday at noon and Sunday at 2 PM central. The video will be streamed to: https://www.facebook.com/OKNational/
“We are witness to the meritorious acts of those who, when faced with a reversal in fortune, during the late contest, chose to offer their lives to the ferocity of the enemy.”-Juan Seguín, March 25, 1837
Oath Keepers is a national non-profit association of current serving and retired military, police, fire-fighters and other first-responders, as well as dedicated citizens who join as associate members, dedicated to the preservation of the U.S. Constitution and to assisting our communities and nation in time of need, including disaster relief (such as during the aftermath of hurricane Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico in 2017).
The Socialists are taking the invitation seriously.
WAKE UP TEXAS! You’re already being Californicated.
Speaking of California…. Thanks to President Trump some progress is being made in our old area of operations near Campo. The old landing mat fence has been enhanced.
Thanks to FN9 for sending me the Oathkeepers info and to 36 for the fencing picture above. Both FN9 and 36 are long time independent border operators with a substantial history of observing, reporting and deterring many invaders of our porous southern frontier.
