Trump deploys 5,200 active troops to Mexico border

Administration officials said last week that they were considering a plan to send up to 1,000 active-duty troops to the border, but that deployment, dubbed Operation Faithful Patriot, will now surpass 5,200, said Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy, commander of U.S. Northern Command. He said the number of troops could rise depending on the demands placed on U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents manning the border.
"That is just the start of this operation," O’Shaughnessy said during a news conference at CBP headquarters in Washington on Monday. "Border security is national security."
The troops will not conduct law enforcement activities, but some will be armed as they provide support to Border Patrol agents along the border.
National Guard units have already been assisting by monitoring video surveillance feeds to direct Border Patrol agents manning the vast stretches between U.S. ports of entry. The new deployment of active-duty troops will include helicopter and other aviation units armed with night vision technology to help identify anyone trying to illegally cross the border, and to deploy CBP agents to apprehend them, O’Shaughnessy said.
“We will be able to spot and identify groups, and rapidly deploy,” he said.
The operation will also include engineering units to build temporary barriers, lay out concertina wire at ports of entry, and construct temporary housing for U.S. personnel, he said. About 800 troops are already en route to Texas from Fort Campbell and Fort Knox, and more will follow this week headed toward Arizona and California. 
Typically, migrant caravans travel in numbers to seek safety and avoid risks such as kidnap, rape and extortion. When the last migrant caravan reached the U.S. border in April, a majority of people presented themselves at ports of entry to request asylum, a legal way to enter the United States.
A Homeland Security official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because plans were not yet finalized, said the president is expected to deliver a speech this week to outline further actions to halt the migrant caravan, which could include limiting, or halting, the ability of migrants to request asylum. That move would be predicated on national security arguments similar to those used to enact Trump’s travel ban last year on certain individuals from Muslim-dominated countries and would meet the same legal challenges by immigration advocacy and civil rights organizations.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders declined on Monday to detail other aspects of the new border security plan, and would not confirm whether Trump will deliver a speech on the topic this week.
"There are a lot of options that are being discussed right now," she said.
Trump on Monday again claimed that the migrant caravan may have "many gang members" and "some very bad people." Reporters from USA TODAY and other media outlets, including The Associated Press, have not seen the presence of such individuals. Supporters of the caravan have denied such allegations. Many of the migrants are families traveling with children.
"Please go back, you will not be admitted into the United States unless you go through the legal process," he tweeted. "This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you."

Brian (Waterhead Bo) Bennett

Brian (Waterhead Bo) Bennett
So who was the biggest black kingpin of all time? Just how do you measure that? Money, volume of dope, power, cultural impact? Perhaps it was Frank Matthews… you can learn more about him in my documentary “The Frank Matthews Story” link. But in terms of documented transactions that we know about for sure, who was convicted in court: One man stands alone. Brian “Waterhead Bo” Bennett. Bennett and his Colombian Partner, Mario Villabona, were eventually convicted of moving nearly l5 thousand kilos that they talked about on certain wiretaps between December of 1987 and November of 1988. Some of the loads were as large as 1000 kilos and cheaper than $9,000 dollars each wholesale. That’s 1500 keys a month for nearly a year. And that’s just on the wiretapped phones. Who knows how much he really sold in total. Claims are made about this one and that one selling more, but 15,000 keys sold for sure is the most we know about for any black dealer. Waterhead Bo s…

LeBron James Rocks Colin Kaepernick Nike T-Shirt to Lakers Preseason Game

LeBron James Rocks Colin Kaepernick Nike T-Shirt to Lakers Preseason Game

LeBron James was wearing some exclusive Nike gear on his way to the Lakers' preseason game against the Kings on Thursday as he sported a 'Kaepernick' t-shirt to Staples Center.
James has previously voiced his support for Colin Kaepernick both as an NFL quarterback and as the face of the 30th anniversary of Nike's "Just Do It." campaign.
After the apparel brand announced in September Kaepernick would be used in advertisements going forward, James said he stood for "anybody who believes in change" and added, "I stand with Nike all day, every day."
LeBron James has long supported Colin Kaepernick and the movement the former NFL quarterback started by taking a knee in 2016.
Now, this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to anyone. James has been more outspoken about social issues in recent years. He’s discussed matters like immigration, police brutality, women’s rights and pres…

Uh, U.N.I.T.Y., U.N.I.T.Y. that's a unity
U.N.I.T.Y., love a black man from infinity to infinity

For those of you who are too young to remember this bar, it comes straight from the mouth of our big sis Queen Latifah.

This song dropped way back in 93'. So i ask you all these years later. Have we followed her example?

How bout this one?

Ignorance of each other is what has made unity impossible in the past. Therefore we need enlightenment. We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity. Once we have more knowledge (light) about each other, we will stop condemning each other and a United front will be brought about.
-Malcolm X

Can't argue with brother Malcolm bout that. Can you? What would he think of african american unity today?

Lets try one more.

"Unity to be real must stand the severest strain without breaking."

White man lost his temper when he heard the women at the counter speaking Arabic

White man lost his temper when he heard the women at the counter speaking Arabic A Dallas man tried to buy a purse at a Macy’s store in the mall over the holidays, but lost his temper when he heard the women at the counter speaking Arabic. So he yelled at them and then lashed out at the other customers when they asked him to be respectful, reports the Heavy. “You’re being mean to her,” a customer tells him. The man retorts by asking, “Are you a bunch of Democrats? Yeah, a bunch of Democrats.” “All you Arabs and Democrats, just go back where you came from,” the man says after multiple customers ask him to leave the store. “Well, she’s making a big stand, why don’t I?” the man asks as the fracas continues. “I cannot see how so many Arabs came out of the woodwork,” he adds, as the Macy’s attendants try to accommodate his needs. “Dude, you’re the snowflake here,” observes another customer. To which the man retorts, “F*ck you. Put me on YouTube.” A video of the incident went viral. Watch: h…

New footage disproves white woman’s claim that a black child ‘sexually assaulted’ her

The woman identified as Theresa claimed the 9-year-old boy “grabbed my ass,” but the footage shows him merely brushing against her — corroborating the claims of eyewitnesses inside the store who said the boy did not “assault” the woman.

“Video completely vindicates the child,” Ramos noted. “Deli owner…



The ‘MAGA’ Kids As a adolescent i was not interested in much. Especially politics. I was worried about stuff television, music, and doing the most juvenile things i could think of. But things change. Nowadays im surprised to see many more adolescents expressing themselves in them manner of their own political views. Whether that expression is drawn on a shirt, sown on a hat, or colored on a flag. These pre-millennials are out in force. And are not ashamed to show whos side they are on politically.  What caused this change that lead to such an interest in politics in adolescent teens? Feelings, over exposure in the media, the internet for sure,but most of all, their parents.  We all know that a parents view have a huge impact on their children. Who else would allow them to come to school draped in a confederate flag. Or a t-shirt with hateful symbols or message.  But i didn't want to make this story about the parents. I want to discuss who or what got th…

Colin Kaepernick Receives W.E.B. Du Bois Medal from Harvard

Colin Kaepernick was awarded the W.E.B.
