Operation Barbarossa was the 1941 invasion of International Socialist Russia by National Socialist Germany. I'd recommend it as a baseline for massive campaigns. I'm not sure if there have ever been any bigger ones, but I'd bet my bottom dollar that Barbarossa was in the top 3 of all time. At the start of hostilities in 1941, the Germans had 3,800,000 men under arms and the Russians 2,700,000.
This year, it looks like we will see between 2 and 3 million illegals come across our southern border. July alone saw 210,000 apprehensions by the Border Patrol, up from 189,000 in June. That's apprehensions, not crossings. Just as a rough guess, let's assume that another 50% weren't even apprehended, bringing July's totals to around 300,000. Carried out for a year, that's 3,600,000, or roughly the size of the Wehrmacht as it marched into the Soviet Union.
Dig this drone shot from Texas.
NEW: This is the largest group of migrants we’ve ever seen being held by Border Patrol under Anzalduas Bridge in Mission, TX. Looks like it could be up to 1,000 people. We can only get a look at the area with our drone. There’s a popular Rio Grande crossing area nearby. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/AsAygsO966— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) August 1, 2021
Texas officials are screaming bloody murder, but since they're not their own, sovereign country, they can't enforce their border laws.
If they became their own nation, they'd be able to do that.
A House Republican from Texas called for the state to consider shutting down ports of entry until the crisis at the Mexican border has been resolved.
Chip Roy, who represents a central Texas district, called for Texas to prohibit even legal travel between the United States and Mexico, a move that would halt millions, if not billions, of dollars in trade.
"We're getting to a point right now where we ought to consider just shutting down the ports of entry, to send a loud signal to the United States that we're not going to deal with this anymore," Roy told Newsmax TV Tuesday morning. "I want the attorney general of the United States to come down to Texas, look me in the face, and tell me he's going to do something to stop Texans from securing our border. It's time. We need to do it ourselves."
Meanwhile, my Church, whose prelates have grown up in a world of printed money paying for their political "compassion," is flipping the bird to their fellow citizens.
NEW: All morning long we’ve watched Border Patrol drop off multiple bus loads of migrants at a Catholic charity in downtown McAllen, where they are given food & shelter before they take buses and flights across the United States. Buses arriving every 30 minutes so far. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/Yon4rpN3VZ— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) August 2, 2021
For the first time in my life, I've found myself wanting to remove the tax exemption for religious institutions. If you don't care about other Americans, why should we care about you?
Add the Church to the list of institutions I no longer trust. Many in our leadership have gone just as woke bonkers as all the rest of the cocooned Elites.
Not to worry. All of this will come to a head soon enough.
