Reverse Border Security: Napolitano Does It Right!

Janet Napolitano, President Obama's head of Homeland Security, has made a shift in Immigration policy. While Border Patrol Agents are still assigned to stopping drugs and illegal immigrants from entering the United States, hundreds of additional agents are being redeployed to stop the weapons and cash that flow into Mexico.

In a speech before the newest agents arriving in Laredo, TX, Napolitano said, “You know, early this week I met with President Obama, and this morning I met with President Calderón of Mexico, and you guys are at the cutting edge of something new we’re trying to do to make the border safer.”

Ms. Napolitano’s initiative to send an additional 360 agents to the 2,000-mile border with Mexico, announced two weeks ago, is intended not only to respond to growing concerns about national security, she said, but also to change the way Americans view the threat.
“We understand that this port needs to move, that time is money, especially when it comes to trade,” said Ms. Napolitano, standing in the shadow of a line of tractor-trailers that extended as far as the eye could see. “But from now on, when trucks come into this port, they are going to see something they haven’t seen before, and that’s southbound inspections.”

Ms. Napolitano rarely uses the word terrorism, and she has said she does not intend to practice the “politics of fear.” She has said her agency will devote as much attention to preparing for natural disasters as for “man-caused disasters,” her euphemistic term for terrorism. She made public her disapproval of an immigration raid of a mechanics shop in Washington State, freed the immigrants who had been detained, and gave them work permits. Her actions sent a signal that future enforcement would focus on employers who rely on illegal immigrants, rather than on the workers.
While on the border, Ms. Napolitano has essentially turned previous policies upside-down, warning Americans that what leaves the country is as much a risk to their security as what comes in.
Ms. Napolitano has begun making changes at Homeland Security and revealed how some of her own views have shifted since she took her new job. Ms. Napolitano was once a leading opponent of the Bush administration’s decision to build some 600 miles of fencing along the border. In an interview, she said she had come to see that the fence has “helped us get operational control of some areas.” As governor, she was among the first to call for the deployment of the National Guard to help stop smuggling. Now, she said, “minds were open” to a request for troops from Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, a Republican. But she said she wanted Mr. Perry to explain how the troops would be used.

During her visit in Laredo, Ms. Napolitano learned that the heightened border security southbound into Mexico might already be yielding results. A few hours before her arrival, the authorities conducting southbound inspections stopped an American couple and a 5-year-old child in a car carrying 10 grenades, nearly $122,000 in cash, a barrel for a sniper rifle and a cache of high-caliber ammunition, officials said.
The man told the authorities that he was a former Marine and that he had obtained the weapons from a military friend linked to drug smugglers in Michigan, officials said. Climbing aboard her airplane to return to Washington, Ms. Napolitano boasted, “We said we were going to do this, and we’re doing it.”

A Shift to Make the Border Safe, From the Inside Out

Modern Science :

England not so Germanic or Nordic and the Swastika not so Aryan.

Archeology and Genetics is helping to show the Imbecility of Racism.

According to the last discoveries of archeology Vedic Civilization with symbols like Swastikas and others seems to antedate the Aryan Migrations. And the Aryans of India seem extremely unrelated to the Germans in Genetic Makeup. The Aryan Migration was produced after a Great Civilization of the Indus Valley, with many vedic markers.

Himmler and his archeologists of the SS failed to find a Glorious Proto-Germanic Civilization in Central or Eastern Europe or elsewhere. And nobody has found what Himmler wanted.

England does not seem so Germanic, Anglo-Saxon or Viking as previously believed - Genetic Map of England.

So the Historians of England were wrong in stressing Nordicism, beginning with the venerable Bede and his Eclesiastical History.

Wikipedia brings a Genetic Map of England ( Without Scotland or Wales ) and it turns out that England does not seem so Germanic, Anglo-Saxon or Viking as previously believed before the DNA and Y Chromosome Studies ( of Y Haplogroups )

Some modern researchers are believing than eighty percent 80% of England's genes are from a stock before Anglo-Saxon Invasions, and other invasions like Vikings or Normans.

In the Y Chromosome of English Males the "primitive" or "original", Celtic or Iberic R1b1 haplogroup is more common than the Nordic I1 that is Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Viking or Norman. We are talking of England without Scotland and Wales.

The I1 haplogroup appears in the Danelaw and in the East of England, were the invasions and occupations occurred. But the South and West of England looks Celtic in the Genetic Maps.

And even in the "Anglo-Saxon" or "Nordic" areas of England, you see that the Celtic R1b1 defeats the Nordic I1. Take a look at the Genetic Map of England for Y-DNA, please inside my pages.
