  • Kemp said the deployment will not happen, however, until a formal request is sent to the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency by Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott.
  • Despite Mexico being 1,000 miles from the Chattahoochee River at Georgia’s westernmost boundary, Kemp said the crisis has intensified under Biden to the point “every state is a border state.”
  • Kemp told “Your World” Tuesday that Georgia guardsmen will set up a forward command post to assist the Texas National Guard’s efforts.

Pastor Jack Hibbs: “I’m sorry to tell you. The powers that are pulling the strings to this country are literally bringing us to a civil war”

Pastor Jack Hibbs

Important Takeaways:

  • Trusted Pastor Warns Biden’s Border Battle With Texas Could Be Deliberately Provoking Civil War
  • There have been an estimated 9 million illegal border crossings into the United States since the Biden administration took office. Taking a momentous step to halt this “invasion,” the Governor of Texas issued a statement on Wednesday invoking the state’s “Constitutional Right To Self-Defense” to protect its border.
  • The statement reads, in part:
    • “The federal government has broken the compact between the United States and the States.”
    • “For these reasons, I have already declared an invasion under Article I, § 10, Clause 3 to invoke Texas’s constitutional authority to defend and protect itself. That authority is the supreme law of the land and supersedes any federal statutes to the contrary. The Texas National Guard, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and other Texas personnel are acting on that authority, as well as state law, to secure the Texas border.”
  • Jack Hibbs, Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in California and Founder of the Real Life Network informed his congregation about the situation developing, which he warned could result in civil war.
    • Many, especially young people, are not aware of the “incredible power” held by governors, Hibbs explained.
    • “The governor is like the president of a country,” he described. “The United States Air Force is made up of Air Forces from 50 different states. The United States Army is made up of soldiers or army personnel from each of the 50 states. Every state has a National Guard. So, for example, Gavin Newsom, as Governor of California, is the Commander in Chief of the California National Guard.”
    • “Our states are sovereign. The states agree to have the federal government rule over them. A governor can tell the federal government that they’re not going to do this or they’re not going to do that,” he explained. “A governor has incredible power.”
    • “We’re in a situation because Texas, the people of Texas, decided to shut the border down. Joe Biden deployed federal forces to literally cut the brand new fencing and barbed wire so that the invasion could continue,” Hibbs stressed. “You don’t want to pick a fight with Texas—and I’m not saying that as a joke. Their patriotism for their ‘country of Texas’ is not to be played with.”
    • “Texas’ constitutional authority, by the way, trump’s the federal constitution,” the pastor noted, highlighting that Texas has already left the United States twice, and the events unfolding could lead to a third departure.
  • Former President Donald Trump joined the growing course of more than 20 governors and republican leaders voicing their support of Texas’ action to protect its border.
  • Pastor Jack Hibbs underscored his belief [by saying]:
    • “I’m sorry to tell you. The powers that are pulling the strings to this country are literally bringing us to a civil war,” he asserted. “It’s the first time since 1861 where we’re looking at soldiers, possibly shooting at other soldiers on the same team—States.”
    • “I’m telling you, as an old guy, this is wild. Young people, you may be watching some history unfold that you didn’t plan on experiencing,” he underscored.
    • Hibbs ended his remarks by praying for the United States, “[our nation] is actually falling apart, and we’re watching it happen.”

In letter Texas Governor said the State of Texas has a right to self-defense; declares federal Government has “Broken the Compact” with the State

Important Takeaways:

  • The formal, official groundwork is now laid for actual Civil War inside the United States. The Governor of Texas has declared, in writing, that the federal government has “broken the compact” with the states. He announced he has invoked the “Invasion” clause of the Constitution and says Texas has a right to self-defense which it will enforce with the Texas National Guard.
  • Here are a few points from Governor Gregg Abbott’s Declaration:
    • “The Federal Government has broken the compact between the United States and the States. The Executive Branch of the United States has a constitutional duty to enforce federal laws protecting states, including immigration laws on the books right now. President Biden has refused to enforce those laws and has even violated them. The result is that he has smashed records for illegal immigration.”
      • “President Biden has violated his oath to faithfully execute immigration laws enacted by Congress. Instead of prosecuting immigrants for the federal crime of illegal entry, President Biden has sent his lawyers into federal courts to sue Texas for taking action to secure the border.”
      • “President Biden has instructed his agencies to ignore federal statutes that mandate the detention of Illegal immigrants. The effect is to illegally allow their en masse parole into the United States.”
      • By wasting taxpayer dollars to tear open Texas’s border security infrastructure, President Biden has enticed illegal immigrants away from the 28 legal entry points along this State’s southern border-bridges where nobody drowns-and into the dangerous waters of the Rio Grande.”
    • The failure of the Biden Administration to fulfill the duties imposed by Article IV, 4 has triggered Article I, section 10, Clause 3, which reserves to this State the right of self-defense. For this reason, I have already declared an invasion under Article I, section 10, Clause 3 to invoke Texas’s constitutional authority to defend and protect itself. That authority is the supreme law of the land and supersedes any federal statutes to the contrary. The Texas National Guard, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and other Texas personnel are acting on that authority, as well as state law, to secure the Texas border.

Supreme Court moves against Texas’s ability to protect its borders

Border-Patrol-agents-cutting-and-moving-razor-wire-640x480

Important Takeaways:

  • Supreme Court Allows Federal Agents to Cut Razor Wire Texas Installed on US-Mexico Border
  • The justices, by a 5-4 vote, granted an emergency appeal from the Biden administration, which has been in an escalating standoff at the border with Texas and had objected to an appellate ruling in favor of the state.
  • The concertina wire along roughly 30 miles (48 kilometers) of the Rio Grande near the border city of Eagle Pass is part of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s broader fight with the administration over immigration enforcement.
  • Abbott also has authorized installing floating barriers in the Rio Grande near Eagle Pass and allowed troopers to arrest and jail thousands of migrants on trespassing charges. The administration also is challenging those actions in federal court.
  • In court papers, the administration said the wire impedes Border Patrol agents from reaching migrants as they cross the river and that, in any case, federal immigration law trumps Texas’ own efforts to stem the flow of migrants into the country.
  • Texas officials have argued that federal agents cut the wire to help groups crossing illegally through the river before taking them in for processing.
  • Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Amy Coney Barrett, Ketanji Brown Jackson, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor sided with the administration. Justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Clarence Thomas voted with Texas.
  • No one provided any explanation for their vote.
