There were in fact NO ISIS at the Border today... or any other day



Pants on Fire: Duncan Hunter makes unconfirmed claim Border Patrol caught at least 10 ISIS fighters | PolitiFact Texas
The California Republican, speaking to Greta Van Susteren on Fox News Oct. 7, 2014, said he’d learned from the U.S. Border Patrol that Islamic State fighters had been nabbed trying to enter the country from Mexico. "ISIS is coming across the southern border," Hunter said, adding a moment later: "I know that at least 10 ISIS fighters have been caught coming across the Mexican border in Texas."

No state or federal law enforcement agency confirmed Hunter’s account when PolitiFact Texas inquired, and Hunter spokesman Joe Kasper declined to reveal the congressman’s sources.  Of course it is very difficult to reveal the non-existent.

Fox News, in its original Oct. 8, 2014, online news report on Hunter’s declaration, quoted the Department of Homeland Security disputing his account.
Homeland Security told PolitiFact Texas that no such apprehensions have occurred. An agency spokeswoman, Marsha Catron, emailed: 
"The suggestion that individuals who have ties to ISIL have been apprehended at the Southwest border is categorically false, and not supported by any credible intelligence or the facts on the ground. DHS continues to have no credible intelligence to suggest terrorist organizations are actively plotting to cross the southwest border."


Today as well, Speaker of the House Boehner had this to say about the 113 GOP Congress:
“Here’s the attitude: ‘Oh, don’t make me do this. Oh, this is too hard,” Boehner said, in a tone deriding House Republicans as if they were sniveling children. He added, “We get elected to make choices. We get elected to solve problems, and it’s remarkable to me how many of my colleagues just don’t want to.”
I'm beginning to wonder why I bother reading anything from  the GOP.. just more culture of obstruction. Kind of makes you admire Obama's patience with them.

The Lies of Dr. Peter McCullough

The Bleeding Corpse

The Bleeding Corpse:  Your MC comes down the wooden stairway, that was old when he was born, and into the cellar of the house. He descends into musty smells, feeling layers of dust and dank as he submerges into the thick air. A single naked, low watt light-bulb hangs over the laundry area to the right, On the smooth cement floor inside that lonely pool of light lays the body of Mrs. Katt. Blood is dripping out of her eyes like tears... Your character better rush to the phone and call Emergency help. Now! Go! Because Mrs. Katt is still alive!

Biden Losing His Mind and ... WAIT! There's More!

We are currently inside the grips of a pandemic that has been going on in the U.S. since January of 2020. Right now we are in the Delta phase , and heading toward a yet to be understood Mu phase .   Yesterday, ~500 people died in the state of Florida. The daily average is 350, a day. Not a week or a month. Every day .  These days most of them are young.
