‘They Will Pay’

 

President Joe Biden called scenes of Border Patrol agents allegedly menacing Haitian immigrants trying to cross the Texas border “horrible” and vowed those responsible “will pay” amid growing criticism from his own party. An internal investigation is under way and the agents could face disciplinary action. — Bloomberg News

“It’s horrible what you saw. To see people like they did, with horses, running them over, people being strapped, it’s outrageous,” Biden said at the White House. — CNN

Well it’s floodin’ down in Texas
All of the lies are coming down
Well it’s floodin’ down in Texas
All of the lies are coming down  — Apologies to Stevie Ray Vaughn

The photographer who took the photos of mounted Border Patrol officers said the agents did not whip the Haitians, or strike them with their reins. The angry old man in the White House has already made up what’s left of his mind to punish Border Patrol officers.

The White House war on law enforcement officers has found its way to the border.

The photographer who took controversial photos at the Texas border says that the images have been dramatically misinterpreted

    Eff Biden. And the MSM he rode in on. They will double and triple down on this lie.  

    The intent is very clear.  If you totally demoralize the border patrol, they will resign en masse, and the ones that remain will not be able to perform their jobs, as they lack the tools (horses, cars, SUV’s dirt bikes, drones, fences) the manpower and the motivation.  

    The result is as intended – a massive surge in illegal, unchecked, unregulated aliens.

    The number of equestrian experts in either the government or the journalism profession is quite low. 

    Those are split reins. They are not long enough or heavy enough to be of any use as a weapon, except maybe against gullible liberals.

    I believe that that Border Patrol Agent is a former member of the Duke lacrosse team and as a child attended the McMartin Preschool.  His grandfather worked in the same coal mine as Joe Biden’s dad.  And while in military service, he was rescued by Brian Williams in a firefight…

    That’s a very cynical thing for you to say. But I think you are right.

    Meanwhile, not a thing in the news about that aid worker and children that Biden droned in Afghanistan.  Fake news is the enemy of the people.

    Mock if you must, but you’ll be singing a different tune when the Border Patrol deploys with chainsaw bayonet-equipped AR-15s!

    But they’ll be on horses without reins, and the horses will be wearing bunny-slippers in case they step on someone’s foot, per new administration policy.

    They really make those?  I thought they were just a joke.  Cool.  (I’ve got a chainsaw on my Swiss Army knife but it’s so small it’s only good for cutting cheesecake.)

    I find this situation to be tremendously demoralizing.  On purpose, of course.   Fundamental transformation and all that, dontchaknow.

    A consequence that matters for the long term is that the Biden/Harris/Whomever Administration makes policy based on minimal information without vetting or verifying actual facts. Such decision making renders this administration even more dangerous than we already knew.

    That’s it? That’s the big kerflooie?

    Jesus.  We need much better Nazis if that’s what’s qualifying as monstrous.

    Or a much less sissified press.  One assumes that if several of those folks trying to cross tried to cross the threshold of reporters’ homes, and wouldn’t turn around, after the inevitable urine puddles formed underneath shaky reporter legs, the reporters’ points of view might change just a tad.   Just a wee bit.

    The most striking aspect of the video is the complete impotence of the border control and the complete disregard for the border control by the “immigrants”.  The “immigrants“ know the drill.  It would be very interesting to find an “immigrant” who would give an honest interview explaining the whole system from his perspective.

    Did you hear Kamala this week? “There is going to be an investigation.” Kamala, you are supposed to be the border czar. Who writes the reports you read?

    In the end, the only one paying is going to be the us treasury when those border agents are cleared and they keep getting their paychecks. They should take pictures of their paychecks and post them online.

    Optimist.  The agents could very well be Chauvinated.  Nobody died, so it’s not murder, but agents could do hard time.  I know it’s BS.  I’mjust saying that this BS is what’s out there.
