After squandering DOD credibility for decades in distant lands, a new WWII style uniform look and a pledge to clobber the cartels:

April 1, 2020 C-SPAN

Cartel responds to General Milley’s Operation Macho Swagger by moving more product into Oklahoma.

July 9th 2020 KWTV News video:

Only On 9: DEA Agents Combat Meth Threat In Oklahoma Through Operation Crystal Shield

“They said key players, connected to various Mexican cartels, are doing big business in our state.”


Always reported as a highly successful team effort/drug bust after cartels move product past US Troops at the border, strict post 911 security protocols, REAL ID and federal agents manning a $51.6 billion US Dept of Homeland Security-then, on into state and local jurisdictions:

Mexican cartels funneling meth to Washington state during pandemic

Police stop van after seeing baby wasn’t in car seat, find 24 pounds of meth

“Officials with the Joint Narcotics Enforcement Team say they found 24 pounds of methamphetamine during a recent traffic stop in Lewis County.”


Voting is highly emphasized in American culture. Asking questions related to public policy takes a lower priority.

Are newspeople forbidden to ask questions related to Homeland Security funding and performance?

Is local CBP staffing and infrastructure at all relevant in keeping meth from entering the Puget Sound area?

Newspeople remain silent.

Port Angeles – Post 911 CBP Spending Spree



Welcome Home Troops

Thanks for risking your ass in Iraq & Afghanistan-working to keep bad people from coming here to do bad things.

Don’t worry-The Super Bowl and public affairs will be safe:


Questions newspeople will not ask:

General Milley,

Did you show lack of confidence in a $51.6 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security when you announced a Dept. of Defense role in the drug war on April 1st, 2020?

Will there be less need for a DEA when DOD stops cartel product from entering the US?

Will there be less need for CBP when DOD shuts down cartel operations?

Will there be less need for federal drug war money to support high intensity drug trafficking areas when DOD shuts down cartel operations?


Love to see newspeople schedule an interview with the US Dept. of Homeland Security & ask:

Are passports/enhanced/Real IDs effective in keeping cartel-sourced product out of the US?

Standard driver’s licenses have not been accepted at the border since 2009.


How do cartels react to CBP social media posts?


State-run media update:

Jun 3, 2020 DEA NewYork

Nothing gets past @CBP’s K9 units!

Nothing gets past @CBP’s K9 units?

Any word on why DEA agents must combat a cartel meth threat in Oklahoma if nothing gets past @CBP’s K9 units?

Any newspeople available to ask for clarification on these wild CBP claims?


Lessons Learned?

Anytime there is a plane crash, a loss at sea, or an industrial accident, a thorough investigation takes place. Lessons learned are used to prevent future accidents.

Any similar effort after a big drug bust?

Any shortage of cartel-sourced heroin, cocaine, fentanyl or meth anywhere in the US since the big El Chapo takedown?

Newspeople remain silent.

A 28 minute news video featuring paid spokespeople complimenting themselves on another really successful team effort/drug bust after cartels move product past National Guard Troops, strict post 911 security protocols and federal agents manning a $40.6 billion US Dept of Homeland Security-then, into Tulare County:

Central Valley of California

January 23, 2020

2 men indicted by federal grand jury on charges related to making, selling meth & fentanyl in Tulare County

The folks who show up and investigate the plane crash don’t spend time congratulating each other. Their work is designed to try and prevent similar future incidents, not promote themselves.

Preventing drugs from entering local communities would kill the chance for various agencies to get publicity for the occasional big drug bust happening in those communities.
