The Brownsville Herald reports today:
"Gunfire broke out in Matamoros Friday, leaving at least 47 people dead and causing the closure of all three bridges between Brownsville and Mexico. The fighting reportedly involved members of the Gulf Cartel, the Zetas and Mexican federal police and military University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College closed the Fort Brown campus and moved the soccer games scheduled for Friday night to the Brownsville Sports Park."
What madness! The President is supposed to "solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." The purpose of the Constitution is "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
We are NOT being protected. We are NOT being defended. One area in southern Arizona known known as the Vekol Valley is a smuggling route extending from Mexico northward across Interstate 8 to Phoenix. It has gotten so dangerous that the Bureau of Land Management has posted signs along the US Interstate 8 highway warning American travelers of the danger from alien and drug smugglers. Effectively, the US has abandoned American territory to marauding killers and violent cartels from another country, ceding it by default to Mexico.
We are told in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 that the times will be brutal, and so they are. Praise Him that our home is not Mexico, or America, but heaven.
