Maybe more attention is justified when even government contractors label what they’re doing as treason.
Miranda Devine, in the New York Post, describes a body camera video that has emerged from a police officer who was checking up on a strange, low-security middle-of-the-night flight into a small New York airport carrying young men, apparently illegal immigrants, before loading them on buses and sending them into communities around the East Coast a few months ago.
That these flights occurred isn’t new news. They appear to have arrived in Rhode Island, as well. What’s striking is the presentation of the government contractors engaged in the operation:
“The government is betraying the American people,” the contractor told a Westchester County police officer in a conversation that was recorded on the cop’s bodycam on the tarmac of the county airport on Aug. 13, 2021. The men were standing beside a Boeing 737 flown in from Fort Bliss, Texas, by iAero Airways under charter by the federal government. …
Also on board were 12 “chaperones” — employees of MVM Inc., a controversial private security firm that was a major contractor for the CIA and the NSA in Iraq, and which last year signed a $136 million contract with the federal government to transport illegal migrants and unaccompanied children around the country. …
“I can give you my state ID,” replies one man, “but work IDs we’re not allowed to.” …
One says: “We’re not allowed to have our picture taken when we get on base.”
This isn’t just the federal government trying to find the best solution to a difficult problem. Everything about it, from the timing of the flights to the “hush, hush” command given to those involved, screams that it’s a clandestine mission. The absolute best light, therefore, is that our federal government is doing something that officials know the American people won’t support, so they’re trying to hide it. Characterized with just a little bit more suspicion, it looks like a deliberate effort to change the makeup of our country… illegally… behind our backs.
Most worrying of all, however, may be the fact that the people we should trust to keep an eye on the people we should trust to manage our country are engaged in the now-expected secondary operation of helping to keep it all on the down low.
