Right-wing radio host who failed to shut down D.C. now wants to shut down the border

Published

An extreme right-wing radio host is calling upon his listeners to shut down the U.S.-Mexico border crossing south of San Diego on July 5, 2014.

Pete Santilli urged them to celebrate what is being called “Cinco de Julio,” which he hopes will “shut down the flood of immigrants seeking asylum in the U.S.A. at the encouragement of the now impeachable President Barack Obama.”

“This event,” he continued, “has the potential to become one of the most patriotic and successful events in our nation’s history, and all American families are encouraged to attend.”

“The objective,” Santilli wrote, “is to create a traffic jam of epic proportions to shut down the U.S. Mexico border — to stop the flow of immigrants.”

The event is linked to a broader campaign called Operation Border Closure, which asks that “all able-bodied militia members to converge on the Laredo sector of the Texas/Mexico border.”

Santilli also hopes his event will call attention to the cause of U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who is being held in a Mexican prison after he accidentally crossed into the country with three registered guns.

“We must,” he wrote, “DEMAND that Obama have Sgt Tahmooressi released and delivered to the border on July 5th, 2014, or We The People will stop the flow of commerce and immigrants until he recognizes his unlawful conduct.”

“You get a Constitution in your left breast pocket, and you say that, ‘We run this freaking place!’” he said. “And you get ready to get in your car and get to the freaking border, so that you can save your country!”

Last year, Santilli attempted to shut down the United States federal government with his “Ride For The Constitution” event. Virginia state police said that the event drew approximately 30 commercial and 15 pickup trucks, but that traffic conditions “were basically normal” for weekday traffic in wet conditions.

On his radio program today, Santilli claimed that he only needs six truckers to park their vehicles in the lanes in order to achieve his goals for “Cinco de Julio.”

Team Trump wants to steal another election — and there’s only one way to beat them back

When I was growing up at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, back in the early 1960s, my mother drove down to Kansas City one morning to go shopping and have lunch with an old friend of her mother’s. Ladies going out shopping and having lunch in the upscale Country Club Plaza in Kansas City was almost a formal occasion. I remember she put on a summery suit and heels and stockings, and I’m pretty sure she wore a pair of white cotton gloves.

When she returned a few hours later, she wasn’t carrying any bags from the shops, and she was seething. The woman she’d eaten lunch with was married to a man who owned a chain of downtown hotels in major cities around the country. They lived in a big Tudor house in Mission Hills, the Beverly Hills of the Midwest. She drove a Cadillac. She was rich.

#LetLevSpeak: Giuliani henchman’s attorney explains why his client wants to testify against Devin Nunes

Published

An attorney for indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas warned Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., that “Lev remembers” their phone calls — even if the Intelligence Committee’s top Republican does not.Phone records obtained from AT&T and released in the Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report revealed four phone calls between Nunes and Parnas on April 12, amid the smear campaign that ousted then-Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, including one which lasted longer than eight minutes. Parnas, who played a key role in Giuliani’s hunt for damaging information on former Vice President Joe Biden, was later indicted on campaign finance charges. Prosecutors have said he is still under investigation for more crimes.However, Nunes now claims that he cannot not recall speaking with Parnas.
