Will Trump Blow the Whistle?

CBS News -- August 4, 2015   
Jeb Bush: Border security must come first in immigration reform
    Jeb Bush outlined plans Monday to improve security of the nation's borders and enforcement of its existing immigration laws, calling both a requirement before any president could begin to address the status of the estimated 11 million people living in the country illegally.
    "Finding a practical solution to the status of the people who are here illegally today is a nonstarter if our borders are not secure against future illegal immigration," the former Republican governor of Florida said in a statement, released ahead of Monday night's GOP candidate forum in New Hampshire and the party's first presidential primary debate later in the week. [...]
    Many aspects of Bush's border security proposal, from creating "forward-operating bases" to increasing the use of drones and other technology to watch for drug and human traffickers, are not new.

Will the Blackout of ABP End?
    Most of what Jeb Bush is proposing for the border won't work and is absolute nonsense. Fences work, but when his brother signed the Secure Fence Act of 2006, I was skeptical, so American Border Patrol launched Operation B.E.E.F. --- Border Enforcement Evaluation First.
    My skepticism was born out, and in 2007, Sen. Dole used Operation B.E.E.F. data to scuttle the 2007 amnesty bill.
    Since the start of Operation B.E.E.F. the mainstream media have refused to cover the work of American Border Patrol. They do not want the American people to know the truth about the border --- and that solutions are possible.
    Donald Trump marches to his own drummer, and I doubt that he will take orders from the Southern Poverty Law Center --- as do most of the mainstream media.
    No doubt these moguls are shaking in fear as Donald goes mining for golden nuggets of truth in parts of the political landscape that they have marked as “off limits” to other candidates.
