BERTRAND DAILY REPORT The War For Your Mind & Soul Continues

By Capt. Dave Bertrand, Ret.

Friends and Associates:

President Trump has been the most pro-active border security president in decades, moving in a direction he promised the American people from the beginning. “Secure the Border”

The Democrat Communist Party and their fakestream media are doing everything they can to suggest Trump has “manufactured a border crisis’ when in-fact….America is facing a growing threat acknowledged by those that know the truth concerning who and what manufactured the increasing crisis on both sides of the southwest border.

This border crisis is expanding, not only at the border….but inside the United States.

The radical Left Wing Army of the Democrat Communist Party are working behind the scenes to mobilize their forces in all major cities and likely at the border when Trump declares a ‘National Emergency.’

The ingredients for the current “cold” civil war to go “hot” is brewing and WE as patriots have little to no choice but to be prepared and ready, depending upon your location.

“Without geographical lines or uniforms, and where “the enemy” is within rather than out, as in the first Civil War, one may never know who has targeted him. Mobs like Antifa or MS13 will operate openly, with little or no fear of law enforcement.”

This is the problem……

The Dems CANNOT and do not want to lose power, let alone the 2020 presidency. Every attempt to destroy Trump’s final promise to the American people for a secure border, is failing for the Dems.

Each day Trump moves closer to declaring a ‘National Emergency,’ the tension rises….

Therefore….WE know the Deep State and their minions (Pelosi & Schumer) are preparing for the ‘National Emergency’ which is expected to fail in the 9th Circuit as the Dems plead for an injunction.

IF the 9th Circuit pulls a rabbit out-of-their-hat with an ‘injunction’ against the Defense Department to authorize funds for a Wall or Fence, all hell could break lose on a government level, a ‘Constitutional Crisis’ will in-fact be in play.

The chaos has begun today (01/11/19) as paychecks for government workers reads ‘zero.’

America is on the brink and military action will be required at the border, if not on the streets of America under ‘Martial Law,’ because (either way) the Wall is going to be built and I.C.E. will continue rounding-up MS-13 thugs.

There is and will be more ‘push-back’ as to what sections of the border will not be fenced, because of environmental concerns and where certain ranchers ‘love the view’ of Mexico….which in essence means, those open areas will be far fewer than what is presently considered wide-open areas along the border.

Fewer open areas along the border equates to less resources needed by USBP / CBP to monitor.

“The primary value of a wall is to enable very limited numbers of Border Patrol personnel to cover a very large desolate area where slow-moving vehicles cannot possibly contain the incessant challenge of hundreds of individuals, many of them children being trafficked, others criminal, seeking to cross the border each evening.”

“The Border Patrol wants the wall.[7] We need to give them this tool, but even more so, we need to give them the full support of our so-called Department of DEFENSE (DoD) and its engineering, infantry, aviation, and intelligence personnel.” —Robert D. Steele (Read his report below)

Below Robert’s report, Lyle Rapacki recaps the high profile arrests of terrorists by USBP.

We’re at a level above the proverbial boiling point…..Keep your eyes on ANTIFA.

How Our Military Can Help Defend the Border

Few people outside of the Department of Defense (DoD) understand that in preparation for winning two major theater wars, DoD has within its ranks hundreds of thousands of specialists – and tens of thousands of pieces of construction equipment as well as theater and tactical intelligence equipment able to surveil and deny key terrain – all of which are in peacetime available for training missions within the USA that support the President’s domestic objectives. There cannot be a more important domestic objective than the defense of our borders.[1]

DoD is immediately able to bring to bear formidable resources, ideally in the context of a larger “grand strategy” that seeks to deter as well as prevent illegal immigration and the smuggling of drugs and humans – including children most of whom are being moved by human traffickers, not their parents – across our borders.[2] The National Guard, fully integrated with the active and reserve force, is part of the solution – uniquely, National Guard members are eligible for law enforcement commissions on a state by state basis, and can if so empowered (operating under state authority) become a vital hybrid force able to access law enforcement databases and work easily with both law enforcement in their home state, and their national military counterparts.

Engineering Assets

Apart from the Army Corps of Engineers,[3] each military service has its own major engineering organization ideally suited to creating — very quickly and far less expensively than any contracted effort — a series of defensive physical barriers across the southern border combined with active military patrols able to totally deny free passage to anyone and anything. From the US Army Corps of Engineers to the Service engineering units there are within DoD no fewer than 15,000 immediately assignable uniformed and civilian engineers who would be supported by logisticians and others as needed, and another 15,000 infantry and aviation personnel highly skilled at the interdiction of individual guerrilla fighters – or illegal aliens and contraband smugglers.

Imagine if instead of trying to devise a “national” standard wall at absurd expense — $24 million a mile is beyond foolish[4] – the President directed the Secretary of Defense to issue “mission-type” orders to the ACE and the Services – the Marine Corps gets the California and New Mexico borders to protect; the Army get the Arizona and Texas borders; the Air Force assumes responsibility for air-based surveillance of the entire border; and the ACE renders direct support to all four state authorities in building walls “fast and furious.”

Infantry, Aviation, & Intelligence Assets

Tens of thousands of Marine Corps and Army infantry, thousands of all-service aviation, and hundreds of all-service intelligence professionals are immediately available to create a “no go” zone running 1,300 miles from the Pacific Coast of California to the Gulf coast of Texas.

Below is my depiction of a “mission-type” order that could be given by the new Secretary of Defense if directed to do so by the President as part of a national emergency:

The above construct provides for three levels of homeland defense provided by DoD “by, with, and through” state authorities:

Level 1: US Air Force persistent wide-area and precision surveillance of the entire border, inclusive of “big data” processing and a new program in collaboration with the National Security Agency (NSA) that can track all active cellular telephones moving north by vehicle and on foot.

Level 2: US Army Corps of Engineers direct support to each state authority, ideally in partnership with the state university systems, to enable a national competition attracting volunteers and donations of materials to create physical obstacles along a coast to coast “no go” zone.[5]

Level 3: US Marine Corps and US Army (and at sea, US Navy) active persistent patrolling enabling the interception of every vehicle and pedestrian seeking to illicitly enter the US across the southern border.[6]

The Border Patrol Wants the Wall

The primary value of a wall is to enable very limited numbers of Border Patrol personnel to cover a very large desolate area where slow-moving vehicles cannot possibly contain the incessant challenge of hundreds of individuals, many of them children being trafficked, others criminal, seeking to cross the border each evening.

The Border Patrol wants the wall.[7] We need to give them this tool, but even more so, we need to give them the full support of our so-called Department of DEFENSE (DoD) and its engineering, infantry, aviation, and intelligence personnel.


[1] It is established without challenge that the President has the power to declare a national emergency and direct military resources toward the resolution of the root challenge demanding his declaration. Where the media and the Democrats seems to fall short is in not acknowledging the Department of Defense (DoD) is responsible for DEFENSE, and that the defense of our border’s integrity is certainly a legitimate military mission in a time of national emergency.

Cf. David Welna, “Yes, The President Can Declare A ‘National Emergency’ To Build A Wall,” National Public Radio, 9 January 2019. See also Scott A. Keisler, “President Trump Needs to Declare a State of Emergency,”

Truth and Liberty Blog, 10 January 2019 and Dave Bertrand, “Congress’ Refusal to Secure the Southern Border Violates Its National Security Mission, ‘Aiding and Abetting’ the Overthrow of America 18 U.S. Code § 2385,”, 10 January 2019.

[2] Walls are one essential part of the solution but not the whole solution. E-Verify is not yet ready for mandatory 100% use but is an obvious area where the President can insist that it be used for both employment and lodging while providing a sufficiency of resources to make it work. “Error Rates in E-Verify,”, 14 August 2018. A strong foreign assistance and deterrence program is clearly important, to include robust assistance to Mexico in securing its own southern border. Finally, the needs of US employers for seasonal workers who can be tracked, and the reality that most of the US below the Guadalupe-Hidalgo boundary is both Mexican in ethnic origin and Native American tribal in its original demographic, must be acknowledged. The below map is demographic reality.


It is vital to observe that the illegal immigration problem is about Other Than Mexicans (OTM), and about drugs that are being imported with the active collaboration of entire state law enforcement and judiciary networks that have been compromised. It is also vital to observe that the change of immigration policy from one of “greatest value” to “family chain migration” is the single largest legal impediment to reinstating cultural balance in the USA.

[3] The Army Corps of Engineers has spent as much as 49.3 billion in military and civil works (Fiscal Year 2008). In recent years its budget has been closer to $20 billion a year, much of that overseas. Two of its divisions are directly focused on the southern border: the South Pacific Division and the Southwestern Division. With roughly 36,000 employees (almost 800 military, the balance civilian), it supervises over 300,000 contractors on a daily basis. A pro forma briefing, “US Army Corps of Engineers,” is available from September 2014.

[4] A good summary is at Alex Nowrasteh, “The Cost of the Border Wall Keeps Climbing and It’s Becoming Less of a Wall,” CATO At Liberty, 8 January 2019. It merits comment that the wall should be designed solely to block humans – tunnels cannot be effectively blocked by a wall, tunnels need to be found through constant underground pulsing by intelligence forces using electromagnetic pulse devices.

[5] There are legitimate reservations about putting walls across specific tribal lands, nature reserves, and locally-owned farmland. By combining infantry and aviation patrolling with interspersed walls and more personnel and technology for the Border Patrol, we achieve near-perfect border integrity.

[6] Camp Pendleton in California is one of the largest Marine Corps installations in the world. Fort Huachuca in Arizona is one of the US Army’s most important intelligence training facilities and ideally suited to host a major US Army task force. Other facilities exist for the respective services in New Mexico and Texas. A Grand Strategy consistent with the President’s campaign promises has been devised and calls for the closure of all of our military bases overseas and the withdrawal of all US forces from elective wars and elective guerrilla campaigns – this will not only free up resources for this vital border protection operation, it will bring our troops and their wallets home to reinforce the economy as the Federal Reserve and Wall Street try to further undermine our President and our public. Robert Steele, “Grand Strategy, Global Reality, & Re-Inventing US National Security Centered on Re-Inventing the US Army,” Phi Beta Iota Public Intelligence Blog, 8 September 2016.

[7] Stephen Dinan, “Border Patrol agents overwhelmingly support Trump’s wall in new survey,” Washington Times, 2 April 2018; more recently see Editors, “Border Patrol Chief: ‘We Certainly Need a Wall, Any Agent Will Tell You That‘,” FoxNewsInsider(Video & Text), 13 December 2018. The Border Patrol also needs additional personnel and more technology, see Ron Nixon, “What Border Agents Say They Want (It’s Not a Wall),” New York Times, 22 March 2018. The NYT lies a lot, the Border Patrol wants a wall, more people, and more technology; that is precisely the point of this expanded “no holds barred” proposal to put the entire capability of DoD in support of the Border Patrol.

BRIEFER’ S PERSONAL COMMENT: The twelve (12) named terrorists below are a mere example of the dangerous dance occurring at and about southern Border security. During George Bush 43 Presidency, documents were found in the southern Arizona desert complete with detailed drawings and schematics for carrying out a tactical nuclear detonation in the United States known as “The Hiroshima Plan.”

The several maps, drawings, and armament descriptions were left or lost in the desert by Middle Eastern individuals, strongly suggesting terrorists entering America. Mr. Bush, Border Patrol, Homeland Security professionals were shaken by the recovery of these documents. How many years ago was that when George Bush was in charge? It was prior to Obama’s eight years of border neglect leading to a near collapse.

To say the crisis at the border is made-up is a lie! The sovereignty and sanctity of the United States of America is under an acute assault from the outside as well as internally. Both originating spheres are dedicated to see America as a strong and independent nation fail, and then be ushered into the New-World Order. Simply look at the citizens of France, England, Switzerland, Germany who have finally awaken to the harsh reality that the leaders of their nations have sold-out to the Global Elites, and have stealthy pushed their respected countries far from their intended foundations, and into chaos by collapsing the sovereignty of their borders, and ushering untold numbers of humanity inward, which humanity has no intention of adopting to the culture and social mores of the country they have “invaded.”

The citizens of those countries are finally awakening, most likely too late, but at least awakening to this reality. America is the target by those who do not love or cherish our foundational principles and heritage – no matter what sweet verbiage they can muster. Words and actions are vastly different. When in doubt, study the actions, the beliefs behind those measurable actions, and the policies thrust forward in support of those beliefs which are contrary to how and why this Nation of America truly was founded in an exceptional manner. ~LJR


A Dozen Terrorists Caught at the Border

• Mahmoud Youssef Kourani scored a visa by bribing a Mexican diplomat in Beirut. Kourani and another Middle Easterner then secured a Mexican guide who escorted them north. Kourani entered America in a car trunk in February 2001. He eventually settled among Lebanese immigrants in Dearborn, Mich., where he raised money for Hezbollah. Kourani pleaded guilty in March 2005 to giving material support to terrorists.

• Adnan El Shukrijumah was “a green-card holder from Saudi Arabia who had lived for many years in Brooklyn and south Florida,” Warren Richey explained in his exceptional article on this topic in January 15, 2017’s Christian Science Monitor. Just before the September 11 attacks, Shukrijumah vanished.

Ahmad Muhammed Dhakane was a “guerrilla fighter and human smuggler who knowingly helped move into the U.S. several potentially dangerous Somali terrorists who he believed would commit violent acts if ordered to do so,” the Texas Department of Public Safety concluded. Citing federal court documents, the Christian Science Monitor reported, “At least five of his clients were supporters or members of Al Shabab or associated Somali terror groups — and at least three of them made it into the US.” (Emphasis added.)

Abdullah Omar Fidse walked across a bridge over the Rio Grande, from Reynosa, Mexico, to Hidalgo, Texas, in June 2008. He requested asylum, claiming to be a Somali refugee. While in custody for years as federal officials weighed his case, Fidse told another detainee that he supported al-Qaeda and al-Shabab. His cell-phone memory card included the telephone number of Mohamed Suleiman, subsequently arrested for aiding a 2010 al-Shabab suicide-bomb attack in Kampala, Uganda, which killed 70 soccer fans.

Anthony Joseph Tracy (a.k.a. Yusuf Noor) was convicted on June 4, 2010, of conspiring to smuggle aliens into the U.S. Tracy told federal investigators that Cuban diplomats used his travel agency in Nairobi, Kenya — Noor Services Ltd. — to transfer 272 Somalis from Kenya to Dubai to Moscow and then to Havana. From there, they traveled to Belize, transited Mexico, and then trespassed into America. One U.S. prosecutor complained that officials had “no idea who these individuals are that he assisted.” Tracy pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to smuggle non-citizens into the U.S.

Said Jaziri was in a car trunk trying to enter the U.S. near San Diego when federal officers discovered him on January 11, 2011. Said said that he had traveled from his native Tunisia to Tijuana. He then paid coyotes $5,000 to whisk him north across the southern frontier. France previously had convicted and deported Jaziri for assaulting a Muslim whom Said found insufficiently devout. In 2006, Jaziri had advocated killing Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard for creating what Jaziri considered blasphemous drawings of the Prophet Mohammed.

• Four unidentified male members of the Kurdish Workers’ Party were arrested by Border Patrol agents in 2014. Washington has designated KWP as a terrorist group. Each of these men reportedly paid $8,000 to be trafficked from Istanbul to Paris to Mexico City and then on to America’s southern perimeter.

• Mukhtar Ahmad and Muhammad Azeem of Gujarat, Pakistan, were caught by Border Patrol agents just north of Tijuana in September 2015. The Washington Times reported that databases tied Ahmad to a suspected or confirmed terrorist. An unnamed foreign intelligence agency warned U.S. officials about Azeem as he headed towards this country. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, “both migrants were on U.S. terrorism watch lists.”

• Sharafat Ali Khan, a Brazil-based Pakistani human smuggler, was convicted in the U.S. in 2017 of sneaking between 25 and 99 illegals from Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Afghanistan into the U.S. They traveled on foot from Brazil through Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Mexico before breaking into America via Texas and California. Khan’s clients included, the Washington Times reported, an Afghan “who authorities said was involved in a plot to conduct an attack in the U.S. or Canada and had family ties to members of the Taliban.”
