Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said last week that the department would send "several thousand" additional troops to the border, but declined to be more specific.
The Hill has reached out to the Pentagon for comment.

It appears the government used our tax dollars to hire about 1,000 journalists to put out their lie of BS for Obama and company for 2 years: http://dcwhispers.com/did-obama-pay-journos-for-positive-coverage-and-to-attack-trump-why-yes-yes-he-did/#EhipIurVcVG7JEdX.97 Vice lays off 10% due to ..... my guess is a reduction of caball money
If you have given your DNA to this company, the FBI now has access to it too. It’s yet another reason to clean house in the FBI:
FamilyTreeDNA, an early pioneer of the rapidly growing market for consumer genetic testing, confirmed late Thursday that it has granted the Federal Bureau of Investigation access to its vast trove of nearly 2 million genetic profiles.
The move is of concern to more than just privacy-minded FamilyTreeDNA customers. One person sharing genetic information also exposes those to whom they are closely related. That’s how police caught the alleged Golden State Killer. A study last year estimated that only 2 percent of the population needs to have done a DNA test for virtually everyone’s genetic information to be represented in that data.

How could someone nefarious use that information against selected targets?
Sources inside Iran say the Khomeiniist regime is sending top IRBC Commanders to Venezuela to quash the popular democratic uprising.
Sources from within the regime who asked not to be identified report that the Khomeiniist regime is dispatching special anti-riot units Chiefs accompanied by IRGC Commanders to Venezuela in order to offer instruction and reinforcement, in order to quash the anti-Maduro protests. This group of commanders are said to be travelling as oil consultants. In December the Islamic regime announced that it will likely deploy a new-generation of warships, the Sahand destroyer — which can carry helicopters, fire torpedoes and shoot down airplanes —to Venezuela. The deputy commander of the Iranian navy, Rear Admiral Touraj Hassani Moqaddam, told Reuters: “Our plans for the near future include sending two or three ships, with special helicopters, to Venezuela on a South American mission that could last for five months”. Tehran’s provocative actions are already raising serious concerns among analysts.

Dagny: Let’s face it: Trump rebuilt the American military, challenged Russia on Venezuela, canceled the Russian Missile Treaty, and cut off the money for Iran which is Russia’s ally and customer. It is absurd in the face of these hard facts that Trump was in any way a Russian stooge. Trump was and is Russia’s worst nightmare as president. Apparently there was some Russian linked money that went to the GOP - but ONLY to support the election of Never-Trumpers. What better way to sabotage Trump than to fund those RINOs inside who sought to harm him: "Most of that cash went to Super PACs associated with Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and onetime presidential candidates Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, John Kasich, and Lindsey Graham.
Blavatnik also gave hundreds of thousands to Democrats in the same period. Senators Kamala Harris, Ron Wyden, and Bob Menendez were among the dozen or so politicians to receive comparatively small donations.
Blavatnik’s donations to right-wing causes continued late into 2018. His foundationpaid $50,000to be the “Patron Sponsor” of the conservative Hudson Institute think tank’s annual gala on Dec. 3, honoring the outgoing House speaker Paul Ryan and UN ambassador Nikki Haley.
During the 2015-2016 election season, Ukrainian-born billionaire Leonard "Len" Blavatnik contributed $6.35 million to leading Republican candidates and incumbent senators.Mitch McConnell was the top recipientof Blavatnik's donations, collecting $2.5 million for his GOP Senate Leadership Fund under the names of two of Blavatnik's holding companies, Access Industries and AI Altep Holdings, according to Federal Election Commission documents and OpenSecrets.org.
Marco Rubio's Conservative Solutions PAC and his Florida First Project received $1.5 million through Blavatnik's two holding companies. Other high dollar recipients of funding from Blavatnik were PACS representing Wisconsin GovernorScott Walkerat $1.1 million, South Carolina SenatorLindsey Grahamat $800,000, Ohio GovernorJohn Kasichat $250,000 and Arizona SenatorJohn McCainat $200,000.
Dagny: Some money also went to the inauguration of Trump, but nothing to help him get elected. Lindsay Graham is an interesting case. He was one of the worst RINO senators we had while John McCain was alive. Then McCain dies and suddenly Lindsey Graham is a fully active hero for our side. What happened? Did McCain have something incriminating Graham before? Time will tell which is the real Lindsey Graham, but since the end of McCain, Lindsay Graham has been acting like a freed man who has stored up a lot of resentment at his former traitorous controllers... Another interesting fact is that Democrats Kamala Harris and Ron Wyden were also recipients for the Russian linked money. Have they been earmarked for a run for the presidency in 2020? Kamala Harris (Wakanda Forever) has already announced her candidacy. Trump on Pelosi:
MARGARET BRENNAN: You had quite the showdown with Speaker Pelosi. What did you learn about negotiating with her?
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Well, I think that she was very rigid - which I would expect - butI think she is very bad for our country. She knows that you need a barrier. She knows that we need border security.She wanted to win a political point. I happen to think it's very bad politics because basically she wants open borders.She doesn't mind human trafficking or she wouldn't do this because you know--
MARGARET BRENNAN: She offered you over a billion dollars for border security.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Excuse me?
MARGARET BRENNAN: She offered over a billion dollars for border security. She doesn't want the wall.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: She's-she's costing the country hundreds of billions of dollars because what's happening is when you have a porous border, and when you have drugs pouring in, and when you have people dying all over the country because of people like Nancy Pelosi who don't want to give proper border security for political reasons, she's doing a terrible disservice to our country.And on the 15th we have now set the table beautifully because everybody knows what's going on because of the shutdown. People that didn't have any idea- they didn't have a clue as to what was happening, they now know exactly what's happening. They see human trafficking. They see drugs and gangs and criminals pouring in.Now, we catch them because we're doing a great job. But if we had proper border security we wouldn't have to work so hard and we could do an even better job, and I thinkNancy Pelosi is doing a terrible disservice to the people of our country.But she can--
MARGARET BRENNAN: You're still going to have to deal with her now.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: No,she can keep playing her games, but we will win. Because we have a much better issue. On a political basis, what she's doing is- I actually think it's bad politics, but much more importantly it's very bad for our country.

Ed Gillespie, who ran for Governor of the Great State of Virginia against Ralph Northam, must now be thinking Malpractice and Dereliction of Duty with regard to his Opposition Research Staff. If they find that terrible picture before the election, he wins by 20 points!
(Dagny BTW: That same Opposition Research Staff was getting paid a lot to do the same in Oregon, where a strong Republican candidate lost by a modest amount. We might have had a Republican governor for Oregon too.)
Democrat Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia just stated, “I believe that I am not either of the people in that photo.” This was 24 hours after apologizing for appearing in the picture and after making the most horrible statement on “super” late term abortion. Unforgivable!
