Vice.com gets an earful
    I spent most of yesterday with Chloe and Dana, an advance team from Vice.com .
    They are planning a series of documentaries in America focusing on things that divide us. If what they find interests the producers, they will come back with a full crew.
    I went through the usual stuff that I have shown to more than ten international news teams that have visited me in the past year (no US media), but this time I focused on the media black out of American Border Patrol.
    Going back ten years, I explained that I didn't believe President Bush when he signed the Secure Fence Act of 2006, so I launched operation BEEF. Sure enough, I proved that he, and Congress, had no intention of building 700 miles of double-layered fence on the border.
    I showed them the Operation BEEF site that gives detailed photos of what the border fence actually looks like --- from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. "Did you know that there has not been one a report of this site in the media?", I asked them. They seemed truly astounded --- after all, they are actual photographs, not opinion.
    I explained that, as a result of my regularly flying the border, I discovered a link between the Secure Fence Act and the Mexican Drug war --- but despite all my efforts, the media refused to look into my claim.
    I also demonstrated the SEIDARM system and how a drone could provide live video of anyone who tried to cross --- anywhere on the border --- within two minutes, but the media refused to report on my invention.
    They seemed puzzled.
    At the end of the day we drove down to the border. They seemed stunned as we drove past the thousands of flags on the Flags Along the Border banners --- especially when they found out that the only reports of it were in the local newspaper.
    The two young ladies (one was 31 and the other 25) headed back to New York to report what they found.
    There is a good chance Vice.com will return later --- and they are welcome --- but what are the chances they will blow the whistle on the mainstream media? How long will a snowball last in hell?
