While We Were Sleeping, Our Downfall Well Underway

America Is at War. The War Is Here

America, our clear and present danger is here.

Our armed forces serve one purpose: " . . . to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic."

America first.

The rest are interests.

Some allies and partners constitute vital or essential interests.

Panama and Japan are two examples.

But when we ignore true vital interests while donating a critical mass of our efforts, our very blood and organs, into perpetual, never-ending foreign entanglements of little consequence to self-interests, we merely bleed out.

We die.

Leaving orphans, or former partners and allies, globally.

Orphans to be gobbled up by tyrants such as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

Panama and the Panama Canal remain U.S. vital interests.

Yet Panama is left naked, crumbling, while we waste hundreds of billions of dollars, and the lives of our young in distant places whose corrupted "leaders" eventually run away with millions.

Panama is being taken.

The canal is drying up and filling with salt that will devastate Panama City. Eliminate the canal and you will quickly become an expert in supply chain logistics and inflation.

Nearby, the Darien Gap is a major invasion route to United States.

Thousands of Chinese flow through the gap each month. Most are military aged males, along with tens of thousands from Venezuela and other adversarial countries.

American borders no longer exist.

Millions of invaders per year are spreading across America into nearly every community. Many communities already are overwhelmed. Nobody knows how many actually are flooding into America day and night.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) tells us we have eight million who have come illegally since Secretary Alejandro Mayjorkas was confirmed but those are only the numbers we know of.

Millions of young men. Per year.

Where is the "best military advice" the generals profess they are duty bound to offer?

How can you look away from this crisis and stay true to your oath?

Captured "media" focuses Americans on nearly everything unimportant.

Questionable elections and open borders are taboo "no-no's" in mainstream pressrooms, while lethal enemies stream into America 24/7/365.

Mainstream "journalists" missed Anthony Rubin’s brilliant work on 'X' to show the Chinese units path to infiltrate our borders or confirmation that CCP plainclothes police operate in the U.S. with impunity. Few Americans check in on the friendly YouTuber at "Monkeywerx" who tracks the SWIFT flight program where our government charters flights and distributes illegals all over our nation.

A quick trip to co-author, Michael Yon’s 'X' page and you will get a soberingly clear picture of how vulnerable we are to the invasion underway and the end of stability in Central and South America.

Venezuela aided by its partners Iran, Russia, and China, are preparing to conquer Guyana.


Guyana is too weak to protect its wealth of natural resources, namely oil and they certainly don’t think the U.S. will show any strength — why would they?

Brazil to the rescue?

A regional war will only exacerbate our five-alarm fire at the Southern border with the resultant refugee crisis sending millions more through Darien Gap and other routes to United States.

World War III is unfolding.

While Mayjorkas rolls out the red carpet to those who would kill us in our beds, the State Department, Defense Department and National Security Council keep the watch elsewhere. Anyone see a problem?

Fewer than three million Americans are assigned to the National Security enterprise. Are you ready to defend your own neighborhood?

Not until Dictator Nicolás Maduro and his fake parliament declared the annexation of Guyana did the White House wake up and get some Air Force assets involved.

"Maduro" is a Venezuelan name but these days it has a Chinese ring to it.

China is the puppet master, poised to gain direct access to the oil resources of a vanquished Guyana. In addition to our self-inflicted immigration crisis, a regional war in our back yard is nearly assured, while China continues its campaign to control resources including the canal.

No U.S. aircraft carrier sits off the coast of Venezuela to check Chinese imperialism.

Our money and firepower sits in Europe, Asia and the Mideast.

Meanwhile the Chinese, known for genocide in Tibet and Xinjiang, the world’s leading fentanyl enabler, with unlawful open police stations in sovereign countries, are quite content to wreak havoc in our backyard.

Venezuela and China do not seem the least bit concerned about the U.S. defending its interests as they send hundreds of thousands more to our country.

What will their mission orders be?

America is at war. The war is here.
