Border troops bracing for possible clashes with armed crackpot militias of U.S. citizens, not Migrant Caravan

Boing Boing – by Xeni Jardin

U.S. military intelligence analysis documents obtained by Newsweek reveal that defense officials do not believe there are terrorists or other national security threats present within the so-called “migrant caravan.” Despite this, Trump has demanded that up to 15,000 military troops be dispatched to the border, to brace for an “invasion” that doesn’t exist, just before the midterm elections.

These documents show that U.S. troops are preparing for encounters not so much with the asylum seekers, but with armed white supremacist American crackpots at the U.S. border. Because they are ones with all the guns. Not the migrant caravan.  

“Preliminary intelligence assessments are preparing for encounters with a litany of groups from unregulated militias to transcontinental criminal organizations,” reports Newsweek:

In a powerpoint presentation from Saturday, the Joint Force Land Component Commander Threat Working Group prepared an intelligence assessment for Pentagon officials as they begin to carry out Operation Faithful Patriot, the interagency operation with the Department of Defense and led by the Department of Homeland Security, that started Tuesday.

The presentation is marked as “UNCLASSIFIED//FOUO//LES,” meaning, the documents are for official use only and are law enforcement sensitive. Newsweek obtained the operational planning documents earlier this week from two different Defense Department sources that have direct knowledge of U.S. Northern Command’s mission on the southern U.S. border.

The documents take a detailed look at the four-point of entry locations spread across the southwest border and assesses where the caravan might travel. Two areas of concern to U.S. intelligence officials involving points of entry and transcontinental criminal organizations is the point of entry in Brownsville, Texas, where the Rio Grande River is located between Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico, and the San Ysidro point of entry, separating San Diego, California from Tijuana, Mexico.

The assessment underscored news reports that combatant commanders might encounter unregulated militia members along the southern border in alleged support of U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents.

“Estimated 200 unregulated armed militia members currently operating along the southwest border. Reported incidents of unregulated militias stealing National Guard equipment during deployments. They operate under the guise of citizen patrols supporting CBP [Customs and Border Protection] primarily between POEs [Points of Entry],” according to the documents.

The documents go onto highlight historical protests that support immigrants crossing the U.S. border. Those protests in some cases have shut down points of entry controlled by Customs and Border Protection, but the assessment concludes that protests are “normally peaceful unless extreme right or left groups attend.”

Go read the whole report, which includes an embedded copy of the original document they’re referencing.

  1. ARMED CRACKPOTS? We are the ones that built this country you fkg traitors! We also are the ones with great memories and lots of rope!

      1. WE HAVE ARMED CRACK POTS IN THE FKG WHITEHOUSE AND IN THAT SHIT HOLE THEY CALL THE PENTAGON! When I hear these asshats call our people crackpots it makes my blood boil.

  2. “U.S. military intelligence analysis documents obtained by Newsweek reveal that defense officials do not believe there are terrorists or other national security threats present within the so-called “migrant caravan.””

    BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! ROLMFAO!!!

    Well, that’s some real shitty intelligence. Makes me wonder where our tax dollars are going to. Being that an asshole wrote this article, it must be asshole intelligence.

    “Despite this, Trump has demanded that up to 15,000 military troops be dispatched to the border, to brace for an “invasion” that doesn’t exist, just before the midterm elections.”

    Do you even know what the word “invasion” means, you asshole?

    “These documents show that U.S. troops are preparing for encounters not so much with the asylum seekers, but with armed white supremacist American crackpots at the U.S. border. Because they are ones with all the guns. Not the migrant caravan.”

    Wow……And this guy calls himself a journalist? Maybe he should go down to the border and stand there for 15 minutes and then get back to us. I’m sure he’ll be surprised at his change of heart after he finds out that illegals are shooting at him.

    “armed white supremacist American crackpots”

    Wow….Maybe this Commie piece of shit ought to go back to China if he doesn’t like our people and the way we do things here.

    Can someone just hang this son of a bitch reporter and get it over with. What a MAROON!!!!!

    1. Propagandists will propagate.

      Their last hope (the “caravan” turned invasion) failed to reach the US in time for the election.

  3. I think this asshole is trying to decrease the morale at the border and make us fight each other, rather than the illegals. Typical Commie bullshit.

  4. Hey Xeni Jardin And Boing Boing

    Let’s see a million Ivaders walk into China and see what this SJW thinks of that
    Oh and make sure this persons family is directly impacted
    Every generation of them

  5. “Border troops bracing for possible clashes with armed crackpot militias of U.S. citizens, ”
    WHO DID YOU THINK WOULD SHOW UP BITCH? ARMED JUPITERIANS???

  6. Xeni Jardin aka Jenny Hamm looks like a straight-up CIA disinfo. agent from Richmond, VA.

    She told Washington Post to get rid of their comment section and she did too on her own website and is even an advocate for Obamacare.

    Yep, she’s a straight-up Commie, CIA disinfo. agent, if I ever saw one.

    “Jardin prefers the name “Xeni Jardin” over her given name.[1] “Xeni” is short for “Xeniflores,” a word with origins in Guatemala’s native culture, meaning “protector of flowers,”[1] while “jardin” is the Spanish and French word for “garden.”[1]”

    Yep. That tells you where her loyalty lies.

  7. So is that why Trump is sending all those troops…to keep US IN under the pretext of keeping “them” out? Or is he sending troops to make sure We the People CAN’T keep them out as these troops let them in? Sorry, folks, but I find it almost impossible to believe Trump actually plans to keep out MS-13 (needed by the govt. to keep us down and out), and third world types the elites need to replace us (kinda what the video Koyote posted the other day says)…I just can’t believe Trump has any intention of keeping MS-13 and the rest out. I guess that’s what happens when you only live 60 miles from the border as the crow flies, and MS-13 machetes… If I have to mind-meld Spock-style with my mountain lion friends, I will (if “fire at will” isn’t enough).

    1. watch when the first US National smokes one of these invaders how he gets treated …
      it will solidify why the 3 “S”‘s should be followed
      and why thats the only way

  8. I say that if the little girl in the picture feels that way about it then take her home. Forcing her to continue looks like child abuse to me.
