In a military deployment dubbed Operation Faithful Patriot, 800 soldiers are on the way to the southern border at this time and by the end of the week, the military will deploy over 5,200 soldiers on the U.S.-Mexico border in addition to the 2,092 National Guard troops and 16,605 Border Patrol agents already on the border. Another 2,000 troops are on standby.

Timing of the Faithful Patriot Deployment:

  • 800 soldiers arrived Monday
  • 200 to arrive Tuesday

The deployment will include combat engineers, heavy equipment, 3 helicopter companies, medical equipment, personnel and facilities, housing and a ton of fencing/barricades.

  1. Invasion.
    Where are the SF … electro-magnetic wave canons, the weather weapon to create rain, rain, rain, … winds….
    and other mass control tools we hear every day to be ready to make people obey the military force?
    Some airborne particles to make the invaders start laughing and never stop it???

  2. Of all the Illegal wars the U.S. has been pulled into since WWII (Congress must declare war – the president has NO Constitutional authority to declare a war!) this is actually a legal Constitutional act!

    “Article IV, Section 4. The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive [of any State] (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”

    The duty of the President is to execute the laws of the land is to protect the actual (not Faux) RIGHTS of the citizens of the United States and the Sovereignty of the United States – and that is all.

    This deployment is RIGHT and JUST!
