Today, The Two Mikes welcomed back Nelson Balido who was a member of the federal border patrol service, and now owns and runs a private sector company involved in business and other affairs along the southern border.
He noted that a lot of money is charged by human smugglers to get people across the border. Some ask Balido how those being smuggled come up with the tens of thousands of dollars necessary to get to America. The reality is they pay some money up front as a down payment, and then once they’re across the border they become indentured servants to the organized crime groups coordinating with the human smugglers. They remain in this status until they pay off their debt.
“It’s become more lucrative to bring people over the border than smuggle drugs because they know that person is going to cross,” Balido said. “They know that person is going to produce for them.”
Mr. Balido is now traveling along the border and will soon be in Mexico. His conclusion is that the situation along the southern border is out of control; it is much more than a crisis. American citizens living in the region are, again, the big losers, town and city budgets are being drained to deal with the illegals, crime rises, and the inflow of diseased individuals continues to increase.
All of these things were easily predictable and they appear to be just what the Biden administration, the media, the UN, and the Globalists wanted to occur. Mr. Balido also detailed the “process” by which the illegal entrants are examined. The young illegals, for example, receive medical and educational assistance that is not always available to U.S. citizens.
“There has to be a trip switch somewhere here that’s going to have to flip off,” he said. “If not, it’s only going to get worse. I’m going to tell you right now, a lot of people want to come to the United States. It’s a great place to be.
He also pointed out that, though the media portrays the illegals as all uneducated and untrained, those a good number of those coming across the border illegally are well-trained tradesmen who when released into the heartland of America will find jobs as welders, electricians, carpenters, masons, pipefitters, and other trained professions and will work for a much lower hourly rate than American blue-collar workers. Once again, the Union bosses and the Biden team are eager to screw the American worker. We will ask Mr. Balido back for another discussion when he returns from Mexico.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
