WIN ONE FOR THE GOOD GUYS!!!  Thank you Sheriff Paul Babeu and Pinal County Sheriff’s Office for the terribly difficult and dangerous work arresting eight Drug Cartel Scouts working well into the United States of America.  Sheriff Babeu has taken a lot of criticism by elected officials for the amount of time, effort, tactics and equipment he has employed fighting the Border War.  The Federal Government, including many elected officials at the federal level, continue to spread the lie that the border through the southwestern United States is secure, and all is well.  The spin, the lies, the sophisticated use of imagery is to convince the public that the border is secure and citizens are safe.  The truth is there remains a concerted effort to lie to the public about the invasion taking place along the border; from San Diego to Brownsville, Texas. The truth is transnational evil criminal cartels are going back and forth thru various border sectors at will.  The truth is cartels are functioning in over 1,200 American cities.  The truth is cartels have well-seasoned scouts working along cartel drug distribution pathways well into Arizona, as Pinal County Sheriff Babeu has just proven – again!  The arrest of these eight cartel scouts was no small task.  Dangerous and requiring very good tactics, the sheriff and his under-manned office just created a huge dent, for a time, in drug smuggling routes working their way from Mexico north 75-miles into Arizona. 


The Border Sheriffs in Arizona are NOT fighting criminal acts, although by Criminal Statute the Transnational Cartels are committing crimes; more appropriately, the Arizona Border Sheriffs are fighting an invasion, a war being waged on American sovereign soil.  The weapons, communications systems, vehicles, etc. are sophisticated and very dangerous.  A well-equipped and financed army is at work, and without the tireless and brave efforts of Arizona Border Sheriffs, and others in this fight, the desecration of our American way of life would be far more evident.  Sheriff Babeu and the Deputies of the Pinal County, Arizona Sheriff’s Office should be heartily thanked by us all.  My guess is after the arrests and transporting, these law enforcement officers simply returned to those duties that were set aside while they took care of some very dangerous and very pressing business. 


Well done!  Thank you for continuing to Protect and Serve.

Good job Shrf. Babeu! Our border grp. busted a half dozen spotters’ layups back in 2010, some less than a half mile from Int. 8. The honorable shrf. and his men, back then,  the BP, BLM and Maricopa S.O. were all busy eliminating layups but just as soon as we destroyed them, the cartels were back up directing their illegal traffic.  And today, we still have the same thing going on.  So if the cartels can have their operatives doing their thing this far into America, guess who can be doing the same thing?
Can you say T e r r o r i s t s ?
