This has been yet another week in 2018 in which we are wholly inundated with extremely poignant and important news stories and, unfortunately, that means that some of these important factoids are slipping under the radar.
Such is the case in Tuscon, Arizona this week after a bizarre series of discoveries have conspiracy theorists abuzz and human trafficking advocates infuriated at the Department of Homeland Security.
On Thursday, a video was posted on Veterans on Patrol’s Facebook page in which the group’s leader, Michael Lewis Arthur Meyer, said he had stumbled upon the encampment after blowing a tire on an interstate highway. Meyer, who is not himself a veteran, said his group went searching for homeless veterans in a wooded area of private property on an old cement plant.
The group found an encampment with tarps tied to trees amid general debris and clothing, as well as children’s items and an underground portion of the camp — an old tank that had been partially buried — that Meyer said was evidence that children were being held prisoner. Meyer also pointed to straps on trees as evidence that they had found a “rape tree.”
Trending: Science is Settled
The speed at which authorities attempted to put a kibosh on the investigation into the site was a compelling piece of the conspiratorial puzzle, as Veterans on Patrol are well versed in these sorts of encampments, as their entire mission to to meet and rehabilitate homeless veterans. What they found in Tuscon was beyond that, yet federal authorities are refusing to admit it.
Internet sleuths were even able to conjure up their own connection to the Clinton Foundation via the camp, which sits on land belonging to a company called CEMEX.
…the Tucson Police Department is refusing to become involved unless it’s to remove the veteran’s group who is still securing the location. Ironically, the Mayor of Tucson is Jonathan Rothschild whose family is heavily invested in CEMEX the company that owns the land. In one interview the Tucson PD claims that they have been called to site and investigated numerous times finding nothing. Given the plethora of evidence found by civilian and veterans groups, that doesn’t cast a particularly favorable light on their detective division.
And, of course, CEMEX has been sending money to the Clinton Foundation by the millions.
Now, on top of all of that, Tuscon is now the site of a despicable act of violence against a border patrol agent.
A Border Patrol agent has been shot in the Tucson Sector. Breitbart Texas learned of the shooting from sources and Border Patrol officials later confirmed the incident.
Tucson Sector spokesman Chris Sullivan confirmed to Breitbart Texas in a phone interview that an agent had been shot. He said the agent is “expected to be okay.” As the situation is developing, the sector is not yet releasing any additional information.
Sources working under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection told Breitbart Texas that the shooting occurred between 3:30 and 4:30 Tuesday morning in the Chimney Canyon area located southeast of Aravaca.
One of the sources said the Border Patrol agent was shot in the chest and back as well as in the hand and knee, but heavy plate body armor successfully stopped the shots to the chest and back. Breitbart Texas was unable to confirm this account with officials.
All I know is that, if I were living in Arizona right now, I’d be sleeping with an eye open.
