Days after the January 6th riots, General Mark Milley reportedly secured the nuclear weapons from then President Trump who was seemingly in a “serious mental decline.” The details come from Bob Woodward’s newest book cowritten by Robert Costa titled “Peril.” CNN obtained a copy before its release date this September 21st.

As a result of the riots, the general apparently worried that Trump could ‘go rogue,’ according to the authors. So, he committed his staff to not take order from Trump without his approval. “No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I’m part of that procedure,” Milley reportedly told the officers during a January 8th meeting. Milley looked every staffer in the eye and demanded a verbal response.

Then, the two authors obtained a transcript from a call between Milley and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. She was also concerned about the security of nuclear weapons and encouraged Milley to keep Trump away from them.

“What I’m saying to you is that if they couldn’t even stop him from an assault on the Capitol, who even knows what else he may do? And is there anybody in charge at the White House who was doing anything but kissing his fat butt all over this?” Pelosi said. “You know he’s crazy. He’s been crazy for a long time.”

“Madam Speaker, I agree with you on everything,” Milley said.

The book is Woodward’s second written about the Trump presidency. Read the full article here.

Continuity Global Solutions CEO Jerry Torres shared his insight on the rise of cartels at the border with Sara Carter. According to his experience as a defense contractor and documentarian, immigrants aren’t leaving their countries because of the cartels, but for economic opportunity. 

“I’ve met with our special operations forces,” Torres told Carter on the latest episode of The Sara Carter Show. “They have been training on the El Salvador and Special Operations folks, and I met with the deputy director of their special ops folks there. And they said there are no MS-13 here. There might be pockets of them here and there in small neighborhoods, but they pretty much wiped them out.”

Yet, the Biden administration considers the treat of MS-13 a pillar of their lax immigration policy. Instead, Torres says they’re not a threat at all. The locals actually get along fine despite the organized crime. “They’re not in fear of their country, they’re not in fear of the police, they’re not in fear of MS- 13. They just want a better life,” Torres said. “And the thing is, is if you take a look at what they’re claiming asylum, well, asylum is not for economic reasons.”

Meanwhile, the cartel has taken on a new role: human trafficking. Immigrants aren’t afraid of MS-13 because they turn to them for advice. Sara Carter has been reporting on this symbiotic relationship for years. “They’re basically rehearsing with a lot of the people, the migrants that are coming across, this is what you need to say, when you get across. This is what you need to ask for, or you won’t be able to stay,” Carter said. “So it’s kind of like a dress rehearsal of sorts. Before they come here, they are taught: what are our loopholes and what do you need to say.”

Under the Trump administration, the Department of Justice established a task force to fight the murders and other serious crimes committed by MS-13 members.
