This is not the story that the MSM will not want you to hear about.

Both Digger and Dvorak are being told by multiple sources in law enforcement that a “news blackout” is in place around these unfolding events.

A news blackout is basically an order from the top down to disavow any knowledge of a situation or story. Deflect, disavow and deny. There are many reasons for this. They range from the legitimate tactical reasoning to the downright nefarious “cover up” reasoning.

Tactical reasoning is an easy one. It is so they can perform their duties with minimal intrusion. That one is very simple to understand.

The article continues by examining more nefarious, or politically motivated, reasons that “officials” might enforce a media blackout.


We’ll wait as the story develops, follow where it leads, and act accordingly.

Latest update:

The bloodbath continues along our southern border and now word is coming in that Los Zetas, the highly trained killers formerly with the Gulf Cartel, have crossed into the United States and taken over at least two ranches in the Laredo, Texas area. I am receiving word that the owners of the ranches have evacuated without being harmed. The source is law enforcement in the area.

Understand that Texas is unlike most states.  You might not see your neighbors for weeks because some of these ranches are located in very remote and inhospitable areas.  The large ranches, particularly those that are re establishing animal populations or native ecosystems are huge.  Some as large as 30,000 acres.  The only thing that sits between the US and Mexico is the river.   The only surveillance that is available is a BP hellicopter that makes rounds.  That is it.

Yes Deadenders, I found the comments at Confederate Yankee very interesting.  More.
