Citing a plague of "cost overruns and missed deadlines," Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Tuesday that she would cut millions of dollars intended for a high-tech "virtual fence" along the Mexican border that has produced little more than headaches for the federal government.

URGENT ALERT TO ALL MINUTEMAN


Obama cuts border security funding and freezes hiring of new Border Patrol.

The Minutemen are returning to the border - LOCKED AND LOADED to say YOU ARE WRONG OBAMA- AMERICA COMES FIRST!

Secretary of Homeland Defense Janet Napolitano thinks border security is a waste of time and a politically sensitive issue.

The Minutemen are returning to the border - LOCKED AND LOADED because we think Napolitano is an unqualified buffoon who risks the lives of American citizens every day she is the head of DHS.

John McCain told Chris Simcox in 2004 that he thought American citizens watching the border would pose a greater risk than the drug cartels.

The Minutemen are returning to the border - LOCKED AND LOADED and ready to stop each and every person they encounter because John McCain is responsible for every death of an American citizen at the hands of illegal alien criminals and the drug cartels.

The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps of Arizona is calling on all volunteers as we return to the southern border with Mexico, en mass, beginning Friday afternoon March 26 and lasting until our Congress deploys the U.S military to our borders to defend the United States of America and her People.

On the 8th anniversary of Chris Simcox' historic Tea Party protest on the border which began in Cochise County, Arizona, this muster will be a defining moment for our nation.

Obama in legion with John McCain, Lindsey Graham and most of the rest of our impotent and incompetent federal government have continued to exhibit as much contempt for our Constitution, rule of law and ordered society as the illegal aliens, drug dealers and Human smugglers who violate our sacred borders 24/7/365.

Chris Simcox said it first in 2002, enough is enough!

For 8 long years we Minutemen played nice; yet for the past 8-years we firmly expressed our opinions and desires for the border to be secured - but this muster will be completely different - Obama and John McCain have left us no choice -this March we return to the border locked, loaded and ready to stop each and every individual we encounter along the frontier that is now more dangerous than the frontier of Afghanistan.

This operation will not be for the faint of heart.

MCDC volunteers will work under an entirely different SOP; we will approach our duty as citizens as we should - we have a zero tolerance for any and all violations of our border and we will forcefully engage, detain, and defend our lives and country from the criminals who trample over our culture and laws.

Long arms will be allowed and frankly, encouraged. From the surveillance videos we have gathered in the field over the past six months it is more than evident the violators of our borders seem to have been given carte blanc permission to willfully violate our public safety. This time we will not be tempered by political correctness; every single individual we encounter WILL BE apprehended by Border Patrol with our help - even those who dare enter our country armed will be stopped and challenged. Political correctness is a fad of the past. This is for the survival of this great Republic!

Basic SOP changes will be as follows.

You are strongly recommended to bring a long arm - you will be permitted to carry long arms at all times on post as per Arizona State law. Thousands of individuals violate our borders 24/7 with the consent of Barack Hussein Obama, Janet Napolitano and John McCain - you are strongly encouraged to exercise your rights and duty as an American citizen to carry a long arm and if challenged use it to defend the United States of America - something Obama, Napolitano and McCain refuse to do.

Other specifics to the SOP will be emailed to card -carrying MCDC volunteers who respond to our call to arms.

MCDC volunteers please contact

We will be completely self reliant during this mission. Please prepare for a marathon and bring as much equipmet and supplies as you can carry - you will need it.

We will support volunteers with equipment and help with food and water.

We also have a generous supply of hats and shirts that are available for fund raising to support this massive operation.

Please help us send a strong message to the cowards in charge of our nation's security.
We are ready to defend our nation - are you?


In Liberty


Carmen Mercer
President of Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.

Towers with mtion detectors mounted on 30 caliber machine guns. Maybe cheaper, but will get the job done.

Well, I say, AMEN! That fence idea was about the most non-sensical thing I have heard in a long time! There is NO fence which can keep desperate people from getting over/under/around it. The whole fence thing was a huge boondogle! I live in Texas, and we, as well as California and Arizona, bear the brunt of the cross-overs. But, we all know that a "fence" is totally unrealistic!

This is how bad it has gotten, we can't even build a fence. Maybe we should hire China to do it.

Lets bring home our troops and put them on the southern border.
