DHS Announces ‘Strengthened Northern Border Strategy’ Amid Growing Tensions Between U.S. and Canada
By Chantal Da Silva On 6/12/18 at 1:16 PM


With tensions between the U.S. and Canada on the rise, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced a "strengthened" Northern Border Strategy that it claims will help "combat terrorism" and "help facilitate travel and trade" at its border with Canada.

In a press release published on Tuesday, the DHS said its new strategy "establishes a clear vision and concrete actions that will improve DHS's efforts to safeguard our northern border against terrorist and criminal threats, facilitate the safe and efficient flow of lawful cross-border trade and travel and strengthen cross-border critical infrastructure protection and community resilience."

While the newly released border strategy opens with a summary calling the U.S. and Canada "two friendly nations with a long history of social, cultural and economic ties," tensions between the countries have become increasingly fraught.

The border strategy's release comes just days after President Donald Trump announced steel, aluminum and auto tariffs on its northern ally, citing a "national security" threat.

6. Punishing Americans and American economy by a factor of 10 times more.

Fascism demands fear and mistrust of all others not towing the line, no exemptions.

5. I don't recall that Canada was a security threat when Obama was president

I guess being on amicable terms with Canada was keeping America from being great.

20. This new strategy was built on one under Obama, actually.


But emphasis a more bombastic use of language. ( hey knew Obama would not allow what they want to do now)

From the article:

Despite identifying similar goals, including "deterring and preventing terrorism and smuggling, trafficking and illegal immigration," the language used in the 2018 border strategy appears to be markedly stronger than that used in the 2012 plan. That was introduced as the "first unified DHS strategy" for the northern border under the Obama administration, when former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper was in power.

16. Bingo.


And note, HE manufactured the crisis literally overnight, then suddenly DSHS starts pushing a thought out idea.
The wee fucker's job was to pick a fight at both borders.

If I were 20 years younger, in all seriousness, I would leave the country. Way too many red flags. and no guarantee of ending in Nov. In fact, I am seriously prepared for an "incident" followed by martial law.
