Southern Border Convoy
Everything is bigger in Texas—so saddle up for a HUGE event taking place next weekend. All law-abiding, freedom-loving Americans are welcome to ‘climb aboard’ this rolling revolution. If you’re a veteran, law enforcement officer, elected official, Mama Bear, trucker, biker, media professional, business owner or rancher, you’re invited to a peaceful assembly to honor our Constitutional Rights and call on our government to take action and secure our borders. It’s called the “Take Our Border Back Convoy” and runs from Jan. 29 through February, with rallies in border crossing hotspots: Eagle Pass, Texas; Yuma, Arizona; and San Ysidro, Calif. See its website for convoy routes and more information.
The purpose of the convoy and rallies is to “shed light on the obvious dangers posed by wide open Southern borders,” states the organization’s press release. It adds that this is a 100 percent collaborative effort, and not one person is charge of the convoy.
Ticking Time Bomb
The convoy’s timing coincides with a ticking time bomb. In early January, the Biden administration sued Texas over its new Border security law, Senate Bill 4, which gives the state the right to deport suspected illegal immigrants. The U.S. Justice Department is arguing that it has the final say on everything border (including the right to break the law if it deems necessary) under the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause and Foreign Commerce Clause.
While that case is still being weighed in the 5th Circuit Court, the Supreme Court just ruled in a 5-4 decision that the federal Department of Homeland Security has the right to cut the razor wire, along the Rio Grande that Texas state officials had installed for 30 miles to effectively deter illegal crossings. In classic perfect timing, the Babylon Bee issued this parody: “The Supreme Court rules Texas must replace barbed wire with red carpet.”
Come and Cut It
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott responded by telling state border officials to add more wire, and cited that the state’s constitutional rights allow it to defend itself, which Abbott says supersedes federal law. It’s also continued to hold the line by not allowing the feds into Shelby Park, a section in the Eagle Pass area, which is a frequent crossover point, according to the Texas Scorecard news site. Political Commentator Charlie Kirk mused that Abbott is savvy to know that the Supreme Court’s ruling basically allowed Homeland Security to go crazy with wire cutters; it never banned Texas from putting more wire up.
“Texas is simply laying more wire and moving in more resources.” Kirk said on X. “Also, the Court deferred on the majority of the case that is still before the Fifth Circuit. Abbott is exploiting this window to rally more governors, more personnel, and to secure the moral high ground for his cause.” But wait, the plot thickens. By story deadline, the Biden administration gave Texas 24 hours to allow federal agents to cut the wire. If they don’t, the federal government is threatening to federalize the Texas National Guard. As president, Biden does have the authority to nationalize these state units, but emergency circumstances must be met. Gov. Abbott is promising to use his constitutional power to defend the border. Stay tuned.
To date, over two dozen governors from red states have pledged their support to Texas. They include Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Idaho, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wyoming. U. S. Secretary of the House Mike Johnson has also pledged his support for Texas’ actions.
Some Say It’s a Trap
Here’s the hitch. Not everybody trusts Abbott. Many conservative Texans will tell you that Abbott has had the opportunity to defend the border for years and neglected to do so. Many will tell that he’s a pawn of the World Economic Forum. In fact, his WEF bio brags that he’s “securing Texas’ border in the face of federal government inaction.” Which is kind of odd, seeing that the WEF supports open borders. Abbott’s critics also say that he has, to date, refused to denounce WEF ringleader Klaus Schwab.
Texas Governor Abbott
So why is Abbott suddenly showing up in the federal government? Correspondent Michael Yon (@Michael_Yon on X), who’s been closely covering the border invasion, responded to Elon Musk’s support of Abbott’s actions this week with, “It’s a baited trap, Elon.” In another X remark, he stated this week, “Abbott is not your friend. Abbott did not just suddenly awaken. Until Abbott very clearly denounces WEF, there is no question that he remains WEF. WEF is a close ally with the CCP. Meaning Abbott is allied with CCP.” Yon’s reporting shows that the CCP and globalists, including the WEF and the United Nations, along with a raft of non-governmental organizations, are profiting and funding the invasion.
Others on X agree with Yon and express fear that the Convoy and Texas’ actions might spark another Jan. 6-style event with feds posing as insurrectionists.
The Invasion Continues Unabated
