President Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson admitted what most leftists still deny despite the clear evidence that supports it: We have a crisis at the border. While stopping shy of directly supporting any of President Trump’s proposed measures to fight illegal immigration, he acknowledged we need to do much more to make the borders secure.
He also said there are right and wrong ways to go about securing the border, including the claim that President Trump must not go around Congress to get the budget to take action. This is important because whenever Fox News host Neil Cavuto pressed Johnson on whether or not there was an emergency, Johnson went back to the word crisis.
Yes. There is a crisis. Obama-era DHS chief Jeh Johnson says US has a ‘crisis’ at the southern borderhttps://t.co/8LP8zfTj7l

It’s six of one, half a dozen of the other. Crisis, emergency, whatever you want to call it, there’s a major problem at our southern border and it’s about to get worse once the “mother of all caravans” takes flight. While Washington DC continues to point fingers with Republicans pointing at Democrats and Democrats pointing at the President, nothing is being done to equip our border patrol with the resources and manpower they need to address the problem.
The biggest fear of the Democrats is that the border security issue becomes so bad ahead of the 2020 election that it becomes the defining issue. If that happens, they will look like idiots for not addressing the problem when they could. But to address the problem means giving the President what he wants. That’s just as bad for them going into the election. It’s a Catch-22.
We’re beyond playing political games. This situation has gotten to the point that DC needs to finally acknowledge the problem and address it accordingly. Otherwise, we’re not going to have a nation left to vote in 2020.

One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
