    Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw championed the use of the U,S. military to combat the drug cartels smuggling deadly fentanyl across the southern border into the United States.

    Crenshaw spoke with Fox News' Neil Cavuto, who prompted Crenshaw by asking what it was that had Crenshaw concerned.

    "Well, look, we recently introduced AUMF, an Authorized Use of Military Force against the cartels and any other organizations that traffic fentanyl specifically," Crenshaw answered. "So why now and why not years ago? These Mexican drug cartels have been around for a while. The difference now is fentanyl."

    "This is not a drug problem; this is not a war on drug problem; this is a poisoning problem," Crenshaw declared. "And they are killing about 80,000 Americans a year. And the Mexican government does very little to thwart this."

    "I think there should be bipartisan efforts in Congress to pass an Authorized Use of Military Force to deal with them," he asserted. "If anything, that simply gives our president more leverage when trying to get the Mexican government to do its job, its job on thwarting immigration, which the cartels also control, and thwarting fentanyl coming north across our border and killing American citizens."

    Crenshaw turned to the deadly intentions of the drug cartels: "These people are a lot more like ISIS than they are the mafia. You recently saw a war in the state of Sinaloa after the Mexican government arrested El Chapo's son. These cartels can actually battle close air-support; they're battling government helicopters. This looks a lot like Mogadishu; it looks a lot more like Mogadishu that it does your typical organized crime battle, these people are well-equipped, they set up operating bases that are well-armed, right near our border, and they're extremely dangerous. They're some of the most capable, most well-funded, most dangerous organizations on the planet, and they're right there."

    "Mexico is at risk of becoming a failed state," he noted. "We have to work together with their government to deal with this."

    "The Mexican government has always resisted more U.S. involvement, and that's to their detriment," he insisted. "And so we are at a point now where their resistance is not only hurting them, it's killing our citizens. And that's when we have to say enough is enough; you're gonna cooperate with us; we have an AUMF here that we've given the president military authority now; and so you'd better work with us, because we don't want to do this without you but we will."

  Sex realignment to the detriment of our society.
  Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Policy for the Demographic Upheaval of OUR Constitutional Republic
  Rampant Crime in Democratic controlled cities, and the possible contagion elsewhere
  Covid Pandemic, and its mishandling at the political, and bureaucratic levels.

  January 6th Riot or "Armed Insurrection", depending upon patriotic perspective
  Joe Biden as Divisive Leader; Ineffective and Corrupt Executive
  Failed Education Industry, from an overall perspective, regarding all levels of education.
  Propagandistic Media in complete conflict with the First Amendment's guarantee of Freedom of Speech, and the awesome responsibility of a Free Press..
  "Orangeman Bad!"
  Bureaucracy rushing to a behemoth size, its unjustified expense, and far too often overreach.

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.
