The War For Our Mind & Soul Continues

Subject: Your Morning Intelligence Brief (May 4th,2017)

May 4th, 2017

Ed Note: Today's featured article is about a small group of Native Americans designated as U.S. Border Patrol agents/trackers inside Arizona's Tohono O'Odham Reservation, southwest of Tucson, encompassing a large area that overlaps into Mexico. Native Americans move freely back and forth across the border where a vehicle barrier is the only diversion along the border. One particular ranch has the border passing through the ranch with their well water on the Mexican side.

Tohono is the most active area for drug and human smuggling into the United States. A "coyote" leading drug (human) mules north, have the help by many of the small villages that dot the desert north to Interstate 8 in Pinal County.

This is a problem that is not going to be easily solved with a "wall" along that portion of Tohono/Mexico and the resistance to a "wall" on the reservation will be great.... (IMO) will NOT be allowed to be built. Note: When a USBP Drone spots a group moving across the border on the Tohono Reservation, permission to intercept the group must be approved before taking action. The "Shadow Wolves" work mainly at night and consist of about 5 Native Americans. It's only a Band-Aid to the actual mass movement of drugs. --Dave Bertrand

Today's Featured Article / Report

ICE Shadow Wolves

The Shadow Wolves comprise a U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) tactical patrol unit based on the Native American Tohono O’odham Nation in southern Arizona. Shadow Wolf officers are known for their ability to track alien and drug smugglers as they attempt to smuggle their illegal commodities across the border. The unit boasts an esteemed history of tracking passed down from generation to generation. The name "Shadow Wolves" refers to the way the unit hunts, like a wolf pack. When one wolf finds prey, it calls in the rest of the wolf pack.

Despite possession of high-tech equipment, the unit relies mainly on traditional methods of tracking, primarily a technique called "cutting for sign." "Cutting" is searching for and analyzing "sign," which includes any kind of physical evidence (footprints, tire tracks, thread, clothing, etc). Officers may spend hours or days tracking in the field following a "sign" until arrests and seizures are made, or it has been determined that the contraband has been loaded into a vehicle and transported from the area.

U.S. Test Fires Missile Off Calif. Coast; Can Carry Nuclear Weapons, Travel 8,000 MilesOff the Grid News - The U.S. Air Force Wednesday morning successfully test fired an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that is capable of carrying nuclear warheads. The test – the second one in the past week — came as the crisis with North Korea continued to escalate. Both missiles were fired from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and flew more than 4,000 miles across the Pacific before splashing down in the ocean. The tests came days after North Korea tested its own missile. Each U.S. missile is capable of traveling more than 8,000 miles…. The missiles, which carried no payload, splashed down in the Pacific near Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, about 2,500 miles south of Hawaii.

Sean Spicer Promotes ‘Bollard Wall’ Fencing to Satisfy Budget Critics (Video)
Breitbart - … White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer claimed that Republicans did get funding for a “wall,” pointing to existing photos of fences with bollard style steel construction and “levee walls.”… Spicer refused to describe his fence photos as Trump’s promised wall, but assured them that it would be effective in protecting the border. He told reporters that the fencing was endorsed by DHS Secretary John Kelly. Kelly has proposed large bollard fencing to help secure the border, although he has also supported the idea of “a concrete wall” on the border…. The House budget agreement specifically cites funding for “border fencing” and “steel bollard designs,” not a wall, after Democrats insisted that money for border security would not be used to fund Trump’s wall.

California Mulls Blacklist for Border Wall Contractors
Breitbart - State Sen. Ricardo Lara (D) said that California is not interested in doing business with any company that works on President Trump’s proposed border walls… Lara introduced a bill in December 2016 that initially would have required voter approval for any federally-funded infrastructure project built along the California-Mexico Border. In April 2017, he amended the bill to prohibit the State from awarding contracts to any person who works on a federally-funded “wall, fence, or other barrier along California’s southern border,”… Former California Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes (D), who’s now a lobbyist for California contractors, noted that California is on a dangerous path with this type of legislation. “What we’re doing here is very dangerous in that we’re creating a slippery slope and hand-picking projects that are not politically favorable to the California Legislature,” Fuentes said. 

Obamacare Repeal Suddenly Looks Possible After Two Key GOP Holdouts Flip
Zero Hedge - …Republican reps. Fred Upton and Billy Long both said Wednesday they will support the GOP’s ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill with the addition of a new amendment Upton drafted. Until this morning, both had opposed the bill, and prompted us to write on Monday that Republicans are just one vote away from failure again. The two Republicans told reporters at the White House after a meeting with President Trump that they are ready to vote for the bill once a new amendment Upton helped devise - which would boost funding for people with pre-existing conditions - is added. The amendment would provide $8 billion over the next 5 years to reduce premiums and other costs for those with pre-existing conditions who have a gap in coverage and reside in states that received waivers from some of Obamacare’s requirements.

COMEY: Huma Abedin’s Classified Emails Were Regularly Forwarded to Her Husband Anthony Weiner’s Computer (Video)
The GatewayPundit - In a new update on the Hillary Clinton email scandal, FBI Director James Comey spoke before the Senate Judiciary Committee in a hearing on FBI oversight wherein he states that emails containing classified information were forwarded to Huma Abedin’s then-spouse, former congressman Anthony Weiner. Weiner was being investigated separately because of his (possible) inappropriate communications with a minor. Speaking on the topic, Comey remarked: “Somehow, her emails were being forwarded to Anthony Weiner, including classified information . . . His then-spouse Huma Abedin appears to have had a regular practice of forwarding emails to him for him to print out for her so she could deliver them to the secretary of state.” When asked if former Congressman Weiner read any of the classified emails, Comey took a long pause and then stuttered his way to the phrase: “I don’t think so,” He then went on to say, “I don’t think we’ve been able to interview him because he has pending-eh, criminal problems of other sorts…”

Report: Hillary to Start PAC to Fight Trump, Will Resume Giving Paid Speeches
The GatewayPundit - Mike Allen of Axios reports: “Hillary Clinton soon will launch a PAC as a way of “acting as a quiet catalyst” for organizations she cares about, and eventually will help 2018 congressional candidates — but with no intention of making it a vehicle to run for anything herself. According to a source familiar with the planning, the initial focus will be on lifting up organizations that are the product of the energy and activism she has seen since the election, and existing groups that have been reignited and reinvigorated by that energy. She has met with some of these groups, and it’s something she’s become increasingly passionate about with each meeting, the source said.” Clinton also plans to return to paid speaking. The Harry Walker Agency, her speakers’ bureau, has a page up inviting clients to “Book Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

Obama Unveils The $500 Million Obama Presidential Center In Chicago
Zero Hedge - Signing $60 million for a book contract, and rolling out on the speech circuit at $400k a pop is enough to inspire former US presidents with creative ways how to be remembered by future generations. Take former President Obama for example, who together with Michelle, are in their hometown Chicago this week and offered the city its first peek of the future Obama Presidential Center, which will be built on a 200,000-square-foot campus in Jackson Park on Chicago's South Side. A memorial that would make pharaohs jealous, the center will sit near a lagoon that runs into Lake Michigan in the Jackson Park neighborhood and will feature three buildings: a museum, a library, and “forum,” which will house an auditorium, restaurant, and public garden. It will also have a sledding hill. The Obama Foundation said that the center, located near Chicago's historically African-American Woodlawn neighborhood, will revitalize the Jackson Park neighborhood by attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors and creating new jobs on the South Side…. Obama is expected to use the center as a platform to work on issues such as criminal justice reform and education for underprivileged children. The entire project is expected to cost $500 million.

Breitbart         ICE, Remembrance Project Condemn 'Vicious' Attacks on Victims of Illegal Alien Crime 
Progressives are showing “vicious” contempt of the many ordinary Americans whose spouses, siblings or children have been killed, robbed, or raped by illegal-alien criminals, says advocate Maria Espinoza, who is helping government officials count the death toll of open-border policies. -- The progressives' contempt is showing itself as progressives ridicule the new hotline created to help Americans monitor the multi-agency investigations and prosecutions of illegal aliens who have robbed, raped, or murdered other Americans living outside high-status and well-guarded, wealthy districts, such as Bethesda, Beverly Hills, or the upper East Side of New York.......

ABP has learned that the project to build eight camera towers in and near the Coronado National Monument and Forest is once again under construction, after a one-month halt.

Breitbart          Cuban Border Crossers Drop 99 Percent in 2017 
The numbers of Cubans risking their lives on dangerous seas dropped by 99 percent since the repeal of the “Wet Foot/Dry Foot” policy and the inauguration of Donald Trump. -- In February and March, the U.S. Coast Guard caught only 49 Cubans in the waters off the Florida coast. In 2016, the number was 407. Only 86 Cuban nationals sought asylum by coming to ports of entry at the U.S.-Mexico Border, Reuters reported. “Dry foot” asylum seekers numbered 11,892 during the same time in 2016.
