A political message… or a weapon? The seven thousand strong migrant caravan now appears to be both. We know that this migrant invasion force was organized in Honduras by a leftist political party looking to embarrass the current right-wing government. I've been pointing this out for two weeks. In that sense, this entire charade has indeed been one giant political stunt. But the question on my mind was who was providing the funding? Moving seven thousand people is incredibly expensive. The checks that a, now deposed, left-leaning political party in Honduras could write just wouldn't cut it.
I asked Governor Abbott yesterday in an interview if he knew who was funding all this. He hinted that the Trump Administration was fully aware. Did Vice President Mike Pence let the cat out of the bag yesterday from the Oval Office? He said:
At the President's direction, I spoke to President Hernandez of Honduras. He told me that the caravan that is now making its way through Mexico, headed for the southern border, was organized by leftist organizations and financed by Venezuela.
WOW! This puts the caravan in an entirely different context. This caravan - this invasion force - is more than just a Honduran political message, this is a weaponized attack.
I pointed out on multiple occasions the caravan organizers' ties to both the Castros and Maduro in Venezuela. This new information from Mike Pence makes perfect sense. If you're Venezuelan President Maduro, and you want to attack the United States, but barely have enough money to buy toilet paper… how do you do it?
Nonconventional means would be your only option. Reaching out to your allies in South America to organize and fund thousands of people to flood the U.S. border is a pretty inventive way to strike back. Not only is it a form of economic warfare, but it also destabilizes the U.S. political structure. And that's not to mention how many criminal elements are tagging along… how many Venezuelan or Cuban spies are using this as cover to enter the country… how many terrorists might be riding along with the intention of attacking U.S. targets.
Are we being attacked in waves?
Reports this morning are saying that two more caravans are currently forming. One in El Salvador and one in Guatemala. To use a military term, are we being attacked in waves? Was the first caravan of seven thousand just the first wave? How many more will we see? If this allegation is correct, there's no other way to describe it. The United States is under attack.
