BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS — Keeping kids safe at Spring Break now requires specialized law enforcement personnel more comparable to military than street police, but meanwhile, drug cartels are neglected and given more room to move during the police-sanctioned booze-fest, according to a report by The Daily Mail.
“Scantily clad girls baring their breasts for strings of beads, sunburnt boys chugging cans of beers through bongs and clouds of vape smoke hanging over the formerly pristine sand: this is March in South Padre Island,” reported Ruth Styles for The Daily Mail on 13 Mar. 2019.
“Spring Break sees the sleepy island community of just over 5,000 people transformed as an estimated 100,000 college kids descend for long days of boozing on the beach.”
Local business is the beneficiary of a net windfall totalling $3.1 million on alcohol alone last year and providing South Padre with an overall windfall of $33.9 million.
So what’s the problem? Police cannot guarantee safety of attendees without draining resources from neighboring communities and jurisdictions, in order to create a force strong and sizable enough to counter cartel activities that usually overlap the semiannual decadence and debauchery of America’s youth. Cities affected by the ‘draft’ call for force multiplyiers include border towns known for drug cartel traffic — among them Los Indios, home to just 1,100 people.
This otherwise sleepy town, plays host to Los Indios Free Trade International Bridge – a small port of entry on the Rio Grande River — that is considered within the crime territory controlled by the notorious Golfos Cartel.
Police chief Jose De La Rosas, 30, says his small department frequently sends officers to South Padre
Narcotics issues notwithstanding, Los Indios, 16 miles west, doesn’t see many murders – the most recent four days ago. Chief De La Rosas says his department mainly deals with drug smuggling, as well as routine traffic stops.
“Right now, in this area it’s really calm,” De La Rosas said. “Sometimes we see a lot of narcotics but human smuggling is usually really low.”
“But if we close these gaps in the wall we have right now, of course that will help. Illegal narcotics are never going to stop – they will find different ways to come into the United States but at least it will stop some of it,” the chief told The Daily Mail.
But safety is not that big of a challenge for Spring Break, if South Padre law enforcement are to be believed, so why drain border resources and deplete our thin blue line fighting illegal drug smuggling and human trafficking?
It is why Texas State Reps. Briscoe Cain and Kyle Biedermann are supporting legislation to provide Pres. Donald Trump $2.5 billion in extra border wall financing; to take pressure of Texas DPS and local police departments doing the job that former Pres. Barack Obama’s ICE was neglecting to do (out of fear, since Obama was arresting and prosecuting border patrol for apprehending illegal aliens — their job.) Texas picked up the slack. In fact, as of Trump’s election, Texas law enforcement was demanding the federal government reimburse Texas to the tune of $2.8 billion for the extra costs it incurred securing America’s border.
Only 873 opf 2,000 miles of the U.S. Southern border with Mexico were under “operational control” as of 2011.
DPS apprehensions “in support” of U.S. Border Patrol are a majority of all the illegal aliens actually arrested. Texas is doing it all.
According to DPS in 2017 report:
“ Emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases are diseases that are either new, or previously recognized but re-emerging with new characteristics or in new areas. These diseases pose a potential threat to the health of Texans and have the potential to spread via people and products entering the state through international airports, ports of entry along the Gulf of Mexico, and the 1,200-mile international border with Mexico.”
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
