El Paso DEA says there’s an influx of drugs coming from Mexico

$49.8 billion every 12 months for a US Dept. of Homeland Security buys you:

As long as there’s demand in the U.S., the drug cartels will find ways to bring drugs in.”

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:

DEA Issues Warning About Meth Pills Resembling Adderall

“Agents said some of the Mexican drug cartels have shifted focus to making counterfeit pills, and they’re pure methamphetamine.”


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?

$49.8 billion is spent every 12 months on the US Dept. of Homeland Security.

The Dept. of Homeland Security fails to keep cartel sourced meth, heroin and fentanyl from showing up all over the US.

Newspeople ask zero questions in this area.

The press release style of news reporting means that a statement is prepared by whatever agency was involved in the latest drug bust/federal grant money award, etc. Newspeople post this statement as is.

A 5th grade book report would require more in the way of asking questions.


Whidbey Island 2014:

Island county to purchase new patrol boat to help with Puget Sound security:

Federal grant money goes to “…gain a better grasp on cross border activity and to prevent illegal crossings.”

“Funding for the boat was issued through the Homeland Security Grant Program under Operation Stonegarden.”

Took a quick look on the web to see if there is a post 911 history of maritime “cross-border activity” on Whidbey & could not find anything. If anyone has info, please post in comments.

Has the Island County Homeland Security-funded patrol boat been able to intercept any inbound meth, heroin or fentanyl?

Has the Island County Homeland Security-funded patrol boat been involved in any arrest or seizure related in any way to the US/Canada border?

Newspeople remain silent.


Has General Milley’s Operation Macho Swagger reduced access to cartel product anywhere in the US?

Has there been enough time for newspeople to ask questions?

Newspeople remain silent.

WWII costume reminds us of a time before decades of undeclared/unwon wars stacked up.

The Department of Defense track record goes back to 1949.


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 heroin and meth out of the US?

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

Why have Joe Sixpack and the family line up for REAL ID, when cartels opt out on all that?


If there was a school district in Hometown USA, that had a poor record for educating students, or a fire dept. that struggled to get the job done, people and the press would ask questions.

The US Dept. of Homeland Security seems to get a pass from newspeople everywhere.
