    Town Hall ^ | Oct 21, 2020 | Julio Rosas
    "Wow" was all I was able to say as the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Blackhawk flew alongside the U.S.-Mexico border and the difference between the old "wall" system and the new wall system under construction came into view... The old "wall" that covers large lengths of the border is laughably easy to get over. It consists of barbed wire fencing, held together by fragile-looking wooden posts and Normandy barriers intended to stop illegal vehicle crossings. "I think you can see for's a political narrative, right? They want to score some political points by saying, 'Oh, it's just...

    On the evening of October 7th, Gale and Marietta Shell, who live about five miles north of Springer, in Colfax County, discovered their young horse had been shot dead sometime between 6:30 and 7:00 p.m. Their property, which faces I-25, and has a large display of pro-Trump flags on large flag poles, could have been a target due to their outspoken support for President Donald Trump and could be a possible reason why their property was targeted. According to Marietta Shell, the corral fence where the young filly, which is valued at $4,500, was located was not visible from the...

    Red State ^ | 10/18/2020 | Nick Arama
    Early voting data is showing positive signs for President Donald Trump and some troubling signs for Joe Biden.Start off with the basic principle that there is expected to be more early, mail-in voting with Democrats, and more in-person, Election Day voting with Republicans voting for Trump. So, one should expect the numbers of the early voting to weigh heavily in favor of the Democrats. Now, some states are tracking along like that.But in some of the key states, turns out that isn’t the case, as NBC notes in their tracking of the early vote citing Target Smart. In Texas, which...

    have noticed that the closer we get to the election, the more hateful the rhetoric from the opposing party becomes. I must be doing something right if my adversary is working so hard to make me look bad. I have been portrayed as heartless and as a person who doesn’t care about children or workers. In reality, I am an educator who actually left the profession to do something more for “my kids.” That is why I am running – for our future generations. I am proud to be endorsed by the New Mexico Right to Life Committee, the New...

What did you learn about how he thinks about diplomacy and counterterrorism and the use of military force that others would not have seen?”

    SANTA FE – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Tuesday announced the state of New Mexico will implement, and in some cases re-implement, several public health regulations later in the week to stem the alarming rise of COVID-19 illnesses statewide. The governor also reiterated her stark warnings from recent weeks – as COVID-19 infections have spread rapidly throughout all regions of the state, including an increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations – that New Mexico may in the near future be compelled to re-enact even more stringent public health controls to blunt the spread of the highly infectious and potentially lethal virus, which...

    What began Saturday as a three-day “occupation” of the Santa Fe Plaza by Native activists and their supporters culminated on Indigenous Peoples Day with protesters toppling a controversial war monument. About 50 people used a rope and chains to bring the obelisk down. Santa Fe police officers monitoring the scene Monday made at least two arrests following earlier incidents but left before the obelisk’s collapse as protesters swarmed around it. Late Monday, the city announced Dylan Wrobel, 27, had been arrested on suspicion of battery on a peace officer and resisting an officer. Also arrested was Sean Sunderland, 24, on...

    The border wall is well underway in southern New Mexico. And James Johnson couldn’t be happier. The third-generation farmer, wearing sunglasses, blue jeans and dusty work boots, beamed as he talked about the wall that winds alongside the southern edge of his farm, about 12 miles west of Columbus. “It’s beautiful. I mean, we’re ecstatic,” Johnson, the owner of Carzalia farms, told the Journal... Just over a year ago, Johnson told the Journal he was “eager” to see the wall built and even granted the federal government an easement to get the ball rolling. Johnson said that construction began on...

    Mexico on Friday ordered the military to deploy along its southern border to block a migrant caravan that President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador suggested was linked to the US election. Thousands of mostly Honduran migrants were traveling through Guatemala, heading for the United States via Mexico, just weeks before a tense US presidential vote in which immigration is a key issue. “It seems very strange to us. It’s very strange that this caravan leaves on the eve of the election in the United States,” Lopez Obrador told reporters. “It has to do with the election in the United States. I...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) put out a statement updating America on the construction of the border wall, reporting it is being built at about “10 miles per week.” The statement, issued Tuesday, claims the Trump administration “is building (a) new wall and doing so faster than ever before.” “Now construction is moving at a rate of approximately 10 miles per week, setting the administration up to complete its year-end goal with time to spare,” it reads. That year-end goal constitutes a 450-mile section at “some of the highest-trafficking and therefore most critical sectors of the southern border for...

    According to a recent Albuquerque Journal poll, the U.S. Senate race in New Mexico could be one to watch. This is the open seat being vacated by retiring Senator Tom Udall (D-NM). Ben Ray Luján, a Democrat representing the 3rd Congressional District, currently edges his Republican opponent, former KRQE-TV meteorologist, Mark Ronchetti, 49 to 40 percent. Brian Sanderoff of Research & Polling Inc., the company conducting the poll, warned, “Ben Ray Luján has a comfortable lead, but he’s not at the 50% mark that helps candidates sleep better at night.” Ronchetti bested two rivals in the June 5th Republican primary to advance to...

    In May, the Trump administration seized a 250-ton, $3 million Chinese high-voltage transformer that was on its way to Colorado. The manufacturer of the high-voltage 500,000-pound transformer was Chinese company JiangSu HuaPeng Transformer Co., Ltd., or JSHP, which shipped the transformer from Shanghai to the Port of Houston in August 2019. JSHP’s North American representative Jim Cai told Motherboard his company planned to spend a couple of hundred thousand dollars to transport the high-grade steel using a particular kind of railroad car to WAPA’s Ault substation in Colorado, where JSHP would then install it. Like all electric substations, the Ault...
