    Good morning all,

    Per ...

    The lead picture of the Denmark Al Basra grocery stall section is cleaner and can guess, safer than places in Basra, Iraq.

    Note "Kellogg's cornflakes ... edible gold".

    Note: "...when you're accustomed to instability, ... psychological state that doesn't leave you".

    Note: "self-isolating to avoid dangers".

    Note: "having an exit plan".

    I am a civilian volunteer of the Second Intifada (other side). The Diem economic reforms in China had business visas lasting only 4 years and had to renew outside China. A couple of us did volunteer work in Israel at working medical logistics at the depots. It has got to be the world's state of the art medical log program.

    Note: "coping mechanisms".

    Note: "a scarcity mindset".

    I believe the expression "lack of access to disposable income" means not enough money. Still, many of these immigrant families - and am not discounting their prior suffering - have better family support systems than many Americans.

    If Columbia is bad enough to leave - to the US - where could a similarly-situated refugee go to if the US displays problems ?

    "Joe Biden is Recreating “The Camp of the Saints” at the US Border"

    https://www.revolver.news/2021/08/biden-camp-of-the-saints-us-mexico-border-illegal-immigration/

    "Camp of the Saints is no longer fiction. The Biden administration has made it reality along the U.S.-Mexico border. Right before our eyes, the government of the United States is deciding that, in fact, the United States doesn’t really exist at all.

    "In Jean Raspail’s 1973 novel, a vast horde of starving Indians commandeers a flotilla of decrepit ships in the harbor of Calcutta. The flotilla sets sail for Europe, and slowly creeps around the Cape of Good Hope, past Sao Tome, through the Strait of Gibraltar, and finally descends upon southern France. As the fleet approaches, French society is first convulsed first by political infighting, then by panic, and finally by collapse.

    "Six months ago, Raspail was prescient. Today, his vision is so accurate one wonders if he was a time traveler.

    "NEW: Preliminary numbers from the U.S. government show that migrant encounters for the month of July are expected to be a staggering 210,000. Another 20+ year record

    Feb: 101,095
    March: 173,265
    April: 178,850
    May: 180,641
    June: 188,829
    July: 210,000

    Total: 1,032,680@FoxNews

    — Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) August 3, 2021

    "And remember, paradoxically, these are only the documented “undocumented”. Despite the wide open door with welcome mat the U.S. is offering, thousands of migrants are still sneaking past the Border Patrol the old-fashioned way. And then there are the thousands of phony vacationers and visa overstays who are once again pouring into the country through its airports as well. By the end of the year, America may very well have increased its total illegal immigrant population by several million."

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/...ms-13-gang-members-sneaking-u-s-thanks-biden/

    "Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) says illegal immigration totals suggest MS-13 Gang members are increasingly successfully crossing into the United States via the southern border as a result of President Joe Biden’s policies.

    "In a letter to the Department of Justice (DOJ), Grassley said that while illegal immigration has skyrocketed under Biden’s administration, the total number of known MS-13 Gang members apprehended trying to illegally cross into the U.S. has decreased significantly.

    "This, Grassley wrote, suggests more and more MS-13 Gang members are successfully crossing into the U.S. — sneaking past federal immigration officials in the process.

    “'Consequently, MS-13 may actually be an even bigger threat now than ever before, given CBP’s apparent failure or inability to accurately identify and apprehend MS-13 members amid the record-high numbers of people entering the US through the southern border right now,' Grassley wrote"

    The wolves always want to get at the sheep. The open borders just make the process a lot easier.

    "DeSantis floats sending migrants to Delaware in response to Biden admin's migrant flights to Florida"

    "DeSantis' office says that more than 70 migrant flights have landed in Jacksonville"

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/de...response-biden-admins-migrant-flights-florida

    "Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday floated sending migrants to President Biden’s home state of Delaware, in response to the dozens of migrant flights DeSantis says have landed in Florida at the behest of the Biden administration.

    "'If they’re going to come here, we’ll provide buses,' DeSantis said of the migrants on the flights. 'I will send them to Delaware and do that.'

    "'If he’s not going to support the border being secure, then he should be able to have everyone there,' he said. "

    As the biden administration prosecutes its war against the individual states, the border crisis worsens:

    "Crimes in Southern Border Increase due to Smuggling of Immigrants"

    https://elamerican.com/southern-border-usa-illegal-migrants/

    "The arrival of illegal migrants at the southern border is on the rise, and with it, the tragic events that threaten the lives and safety of Americans in the region.

    " ' NEW: A Border Patrol agent was shot at from across the river in Mexico on New Year’s Day while he was apprehending a migrant who had crossed illegally near Roma, TX. Bullets hit agents vehicle, but he wasn’t hurt. CBP and FBI now investigating. Pics from LE source. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/WSU0ZLslGZ
    — Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) January 3, 2022

    "On October 30, 2021, while on her way to her favorite restaurant to celebrate her birthday, Wanda Sitoski was killed in a car accident after a 16-year-old carrying four illegal aliens in his car ran a red light at 105 miles per hour and killed her instantly.

    "Border Patrol apprehensions in the Tucson area, which includes Cochise County, nearly tripled. In FY 2021, border agents apprehended more than 190,000 illegal aliens in the sector, up from 66,000 the previous year; while thousands more evaded apprehension.

    "Dannels reported that his office tracks between 900 and 1,000 smuggling vehicles in that sector. He explained that these drivers are paid around $1,000 for each illegal alien they smuggle. They help them get to Phoenix so they can then travel to other cities. “They set up in public places along the highways waiting to be called to come pick them up,” Dannels said.

    “'The federal government is doing nothing. It’s willful negligence. So we are seeing people commit crimes in our communities every day […] If we don’t apply some kind of coercive measure, nothing happens,' he said.

    "While the Democratic administration remains silent on the border crisis, for the first time in a decade Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is not releasing its annual report for 2021.

    "Meanwhile, according to Fox News, the Border Patrol has arrested several sex offenders at the border in recent weeks, including an Ecuadorian national with prior convictions for aggravated sodomy, child molestation and rape."
    ====================================

    "'We've Got A Gun At Every Door In The House': Border Rancher Sees 2,400% Increase In Illegal Aliens On Property"

    https://www.zerohedge.com/political...her-sees-2400-percent-increase-illegal-aliens

    -- This article was first published by the Epoch Times

    "Ranching and smuggling are respectively the primary legitimate and illegitimate economic drivers in Cochise County, Arizona.

    "Much to John Ladd’s frustration, the two industries intersect on his ranch, which is sandwiched between the U.S.–Mexico border and highway 92, a convenient smuggling pick-up road.

    "Ladd’s ranch shares 10.5 miles of border with Mexico and in mid-2019 had an average of 12 illegal aliens traversing his land daily, with Border Patrol catching about half. Now, he says, it’s about 300 a day and Border Patrol catches about 30 percent on a good day. The numbers started escalating the same time the 2020 presidential election swung Joe Biden’s way.

    Four years ago, the sheriff’s border team, called SABRE (Southeastern Arizona Border Region Enforcement), rid Ladd’s ranch of drug smugglers, which was the biggest problem at the time.

    “'There were 37 experienced smugglers [on his property] that are now sitting in prison,' Dannels said in 2019.

    "The drugs are still coming across, but the cartels are making an endless amount of cash with human smuggling, so they’ve added a lucrative new revenue stream. Currently, Dannels’s cameras are detecting about 6,000 illegal aliens per month in the county, while Border Patrol is detecting an additional 10,000.

    "Detective Jake Kartchner, who is part of the sheriff’s border team run by Sgt. Tim Williams, said each illegal alien must pay the Sinaloa cartel between $7,000 to $9,000 on average to get across the border.

    "Ladd said two of the ranches on the Mexican side directly across from him are owned by the Sinaloa cartel and the owners of the other two have been told to stay off their property after dark."

    As a prepper, one may have learned the behavioral patterns of those people who occupy the area in which they will attempt to survive. "These people are not fully civilized and if pushed, they will go hyper-violent." Or "These people are given to altruism even during hard times. They may go protective, but then, so will I." Such observations have an impact on how we prepare. Just down the road from me week before last, the police had to swarm a house to arrest a fellow ... again. Last time he was in jail it was for putting his wife in the hospital. People in my area are generally civilized. There are notable exceptions.

    As illegal immigrants swarm into Western nations, we must consider the behavioral patterns of people back in their countries of origin. Are they of an advanced culture? Are these people ones who stay in place or are these new people migratory? Is there more violence in their country and is it ongoing?

    Example: Asian Americans, many of whom came from families who were paid slave wages to build our railroads, today are our most productive citizens, their children do very well in school, and we have gained many physicians, scientists, and military leaders from among them. The number of Asian Americans on public assistance is VERY low. Such is a grand success story.

    Such is not the case with other groups.

    ========================================

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/...s-prison-murdering-24-year-old-alabama-woman/

    "An illegal alien has been sentenced to just 20 years in prison after murdering a 24-year-old woman in Marshall County, Alabama.

    "Edgar Almanza-Zarazua, a 25-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, had fled back to Mexico after having murdered 24-year-old Gloria Stephanie Palomec in June of 2016. Months later, in October 2016, Zarazua was hit with murder and attempted murder charges though police searched for him for years.

    "A break in the hunt for Zarazua came after he was accused of murdering an individual in Mexico and placed in a local jail.

    "The Marshall’s County Sheriff’s Office worked with the United States Marshal’s Service to extradite Zarazua to the U.S. in January 2020 where he was flown to Birmingham, Alabama, and held on a $3.5 million bail.

    "Though Zarazua was initially charged with murder in the death of Palomec, he pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of manslaughter this month and was given a 20-year prison sentence by Judge Tim Riley — the maximum sentence for such a charge."

    As for as immigrants - remember the movie " Scarface " . It depicts a Cuban that was part of a prison emptying plan by Cuba and sent to the U.S. . Now multiple countries are following this movie example and are emptying their prisons and sending them to the United States where they are accepted without knowing anything about their history .

    If you look at your map there are certain counties and areas that have allowed migration , On a large scale , however their homicide rate is very low 0-2.99 per hundred thousand .
    this is Canada ,Between November 2015 and April 2019, 63,938 Syrian refugees were admitted to Canada, according to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
    Germany, This statistic shows the number of immigrants in Germany from 1991 to 2020. In 2020, the number of immigrants in Germany amounted to roughly 1.19 million.

    but in the United states the homicide rate is double that of countries that did not restricted immigration .

    In Syria, the homicide rate is low. Syrians are civilized.
    https://www.macrotrends.net/countries/SYR/syrian-arab-republic/murder-homicide-rate

    We in the States have tens of millions of people who came here via involuntary migration. They were captives from the wars in Africa and were sent to be enslaved here. Slavery only ended in the 1860s.

    In the USA, the murder rate among African Americans is six times (6x) that of whites. Armed robbery, the rate is 8x. The same is true in South Africa and other African countries.

    The United Kingdom is only now receiving mass-migration, so it will take a while before it experiences what the U.S. and Sweden sees. In Sweden, the homicide rates have skyrocketed and it is due to migrant enclaves. The rape rate in Sweden has also gone through the roof.

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/20...gration-related-to-ongoing-gang-crime-issues/

    "Sweden’s National Police Chief Anders Thornberg had admitted that migration and issues with integration have contributed to the country’s ongoing problem with violent criminal gangs.

    "Chief Thornberg states that the ongoing issues with gang violence, particularly the high levels of fatal shootings and bombings related to criminal gangs, is linked to mass migration.

    “'It is based on a number of different factors. A sharp increase in demand for drugs, accelerating technological development and digitalisation, increased migration and lack of integration,' Thornberg said this week at the People and Defence Security Conference, broadcaster YLE reports."

    =============================

    Canada

    https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/20...ts-calls-for-targeted-trauma-services.html?rf

    "For the first time ever, Statistics Canada has released race-based homicide data that reveals a stark representation of Black Canadians among homicide victims in 2019, prompting calls for targeted mental health programming for members of the Black community.

    "StatCan’s 2019 homicide data, released on Oct. 29, shows one-third of homicide victims were visible minorities — 44 per cent of whom were identified as Black, yet Black people account for only 3.4 per cent of the Canadian population. This means Black people are 4.3 times more likely to be victims of homicide in Canada.

    "In Toronto, the numbers are more stark: 51 per cent of the city’s population identify as visible minorities, yet visible minorities made up 75 per cent of homicide victims.

    "The numbers come amid a year marked by more than 425 shootings to-date in Toronto that led to 201 deaths or injuries, many of which occurred in Black Creek and York University Heights, where a large population of African, Caribbean and Black Canadians call home — and where a shooting on Saturday claimed the life of a 12-year-old boy, who succumbed to his injuries Wednesday.

    "StatCan’s data are the first federal numbers released on the race of homicide victims in Canada specific to Black Canadians — information that has long been readily-available in the United States.

    "But it affirms what many have known all along, researchers say: there is disproportionate and widespread grief among African, Caribbean and Black communities in Canada that must be addressed"

    If I knew and could put society to rights, I would be some sort of mega-hero.

    The Lord God Himself has sent Prophets to humankind over the millennia and even that Grace seems not to work. If those Holy Souls can't turn human nature around, we humans sure can't do it ourselves. Social engineering makes matters even worse.

    At the rate inner city gangs are killing-off each other, one could imagine them wiping themselves out. Murder plus Democrat-run social engineering abortion factories haven't brought down their numbers, however. "Leadership" in these communities almost always turns to government so that they can throw money at the problems, but that money only ends up in the coffers of urban political machines. The main stream media avoids like the plague positive stories in which community ministers are making progress with youth.

    Sociologists loathe the concept; however, Midnight Basketball programs in urban areas actually did reduce violence rates among minority youth. Having adult male leadership models available plus having a mechanism to get kids off the streets at night worked. Kids are out on the streets at night when there is zero discipline at home. Mothers cannot enforce curfews on teenage boys.

    LBJ's Great Society was a cancer. That social debacle annihilated families and thus destroyed civilized behavior in urban areas here in America. Young people require discipline and the security of having a solid home. No family structure = no civilization.

    In Europe, migrants bring with them the violence issues seen in their home countries. And of course there's the matter of already-established gangs being among the migrants. Many countries (not all) in the Middle East and North Africa have seen ongoing violence over the centuries / the millennia. When these people migrate, they bring this with them. They also treat their women little better than chattel slaves. In many of these countries, if a woman is raped, the locals say, "She deserved it." This is the reason that Sweden's women are being sexually attacked.

    It's all too sick to think about. It is also sick to witness ivory tower sociologists cover for such sick behavior. "They do it because they are oppressed!" I've got some puke in my mouth.

    "Biden’s Border Crisis—Crime Problem in Texas a Bad Omen for Rest of U.S."

    https://www.heritage.org/immigratio...r-crisis-crime-problem-texas-bad-omen-rest-us

    Quotes from article are in color Blue

    Supporters of illegal immigration like to portray all of the aliens now flooding across the southern border as benign individuals simply seeking a better life. Many no doubt are, but the latest report from the Texas Department of Public Safety shows just how dangerous some of them are.

    A recent Texas safety report outlines more than 573,000 criminal offenses committed by illegal aliens "over the course of their entire Texas criminal careers."

    The number of crimes committed by these aliens in Texas (and other states) is probably much higher than these already-unacceptable numbers.

    There are 1,245 Texans who would likely still be alive today if we were securing our border and vigorously enforcing our immigration laws.

    The report by the famous Texas Rangers shows that over 344,000 criminal aliens were booked into local Texas jails between June 1, 2011, and June 30, 2021, of which over 235,000 were classified as illegal aliens. The criminal offenses with which they were charged included:

    1,245 homicides
    66,924 assaults
    17,456 burglaries
    72,835 drug charges
    980 kidnappings
    33,335 thefts
    4,155 robberies
    7.076 sexual assaults
    8,332 sexual offenses
    49,408 obstructing police charges
    8,317 weapons charges

    Keep in mind, as the Texas report says, that these figures "represent the minimum number of crimes associated with criminal illegal aliens" (emphasis added). Why? Because Texas is counting as illegal aliens only those who "previously had an encounter" with the Department of Homeland Security that "resulted in their fingerprints being entered into the DHS IDENT database."

    Here are some realities that people know about, however do not give much thought.

    In the event of a nuclear war in the U.S., Americans could stream into Canada. Canada has plenty of cropland and a small population. Would Canada's military fire on American civilians? Maybe; however, we'd be talking about millions of people. Anyone saying that these Americans would be hindered by no fuel and horrible logistics do not know Americans very well. These people would be from America's Breadbasket (which would likely catch too much radioactive fallout). Try defeating such people. Stand in their way and they'll use you for target practice.

    Much further south ...

    The apprehension of two terrorists at the US/Mexican border made it to the press. How many have actually been caught ... who knows? What with the biden regime letting Title 42 expire, there will be at least a ten-fold increase in illegals coming into America. The odds that numerous terrorists will be able to hide in this human river and create terrorists cells in the US is 100%. They will.

    All of the fentanyl heading into America via the illegal alien highway is already overwhelming law-enforcement. The killing power of this newest drug entry item is only now being seen as the growing monstrosity it is. Mass quantities of fentanyl is currently being manufactured in China, then shipped to Panama where China has a giant port. There are 300,000 people of Chinese heritage in Panama. I've read that Communist Chinese have had some financial difficulties down there. Man, this fentanyl trade will sure help patch that up! Mexican drug cartels acquire fentanyl in Panama and ship it north into the US. This is only get larger and the tons of illegal cash it will generate will fund Mexican drug cartels such that they will be able to buy a whole lot more military weaponry left over from the civil wars in Central America.

    Just today in the news, looks like China is now selling components for illegal drugs straight into Mexico:

    "DEA Administrator: ‘China Is Providing Chemicals’ ‘to the Criminal Drug Networks’ That Are ‘Mass-Producing’ Fentanyl Pills"

    https://www.breitbart.com/clips/202...works-that-are-mass-producing-fentanyl-pills/

    "During an interview with ABC on Tuesday aired on Tuesday’s edition of 'Nightline,' DEA Administrator Anne Milgram stated that China provides chemicals 'to Mexico, to the criminal drug networks that are then mass-producing' fake prescription pills that are sold as though they’re prescription drugs, but are actually laced with fentanyl.

    "Milgram said, '[W]e do see a large number of young people who are purchasing pills. What we know is that China is providing chemicals to Mexico, to the criminal drug networks that are then mass-producing these fake prescription pills. They’re being sold as if they were Xanax, as if they were Oxy, as if they were Percocet. But there’s no Xanax, no Oxy, no Percocet in them. They’re fentanyl. But it isn’t just young people that we see, it’s also older Americans. Right now, this is the leading cause of death. Overdoses are the leading cause of death for men between the age of 18 and 45. There are more overdose deaths than car accidents and gun violence. So, we have to be really expansive in understanding that it’s just not teens, it’s Americans of all ages, cuts across every single demographic, rural, urban, suburban, and that people are dying at record rates.'”
