    The general in charge of U.S. Southern Command says America's porous southern border poses as much a threat as any foreign power, with gangs and terrorist groups hiding among the tidal wave of illegals.
    If Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, keeps warning about the crisis at our southern border, he may soon join the long list of generals and admirals sacked by this administration as it decimates the military.
    "In comparison to other global threats, the near collapse of societies in the hemisphere with the associated drug and (undocumented immigrant) flow are frequently viewed to be of low importance," Kelly told Defense One, a website focused on national security issues. "Many argue these threats are not existential and do not challenge our national security. I disagree."
    Kelly, responsible for the Caribbean and all lands south of Mexico, has sounded the alarm that this isn't just a humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied children.
    "Clearly, criminal networks can move just about anything on these smuggling pipelines," he testified in February to the House Armed Services Committee. "Terrorist organizations could seek to leverage those same smuggling routes to move operatives with intent to cause grave harm to our citizens or even quite easily bring weapons of mass destruction into the United States."

    A very strange use of the word existential.

    Just for information here are the definitions of "existential".

    From Another General

    NEW YORK – In recent weeks, both General David Petraeus and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., have woven into public speeches the theme of combining the United States, Canada and Mexico into a single, North American Union.

    “After America, there is North America,” explained Petraeus, the former U.S. military commander and former head of the CIA, to a panel entitled “After America, What?” held at the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty on June 18, 2014, hosted by the Center for Policy Studies in Great Britain.

    In his presentation to the conference, Petraeus proclaimed the coming of the “North American decade,” a vision he explained was founded on the idea of putting together the economies of the United States, Canada and Mexico, some 20 years after the creation of North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.

    Don't worry though I'm told that the NAU is all a big fiction . . . the borders aren't really being erased by design. It's all coincidence.

    The threat was fomented by Obama himself.

    The objective is to create a crisis.

    The result will be martial law.

    Anyone who can't see this coming is willfully blind.
