No ice for Santa

Steve Connor breathlessly reports on climate change (what used to be called weather) for the UK Independent.

It seems unthinkable, but for the first time in human history, ice is on course to disappear entirely from the North Pole this year.

Shed a tear for dear Saint Nick.

In related news, the ice maker in my refrigerator is producing an altogether insufficient quantity of ice cubes to cool my iced tea, lemonade, and soft drinks.

Invasion: Mexican Army member(s) commit(s) Phoenix home invasion and murder

The US border with Mexico is an insecure risk. Even if you take away the drug smuggling, the human trafficking, the murders, rapes, beatings, abandonment and robbery, even if you take away the criminal murder gangs that roam freely along both sides of the border, even if you take away cooperation with Hezbollah and other jihadists, the behavior of Mexican army units and members along and around the border is a risk. In Phoenix, a home invasion and murder turns out to be an invasion of another kind: An invasion of the US by one or more (active duty status unreported) members of the Mexican military services.

Take it away, KFYI:

A top member of a Phoenix police union is standing by reports that at least one of the men involved in a Monday morning home invasion and homicide was an active member in the Mexican Army. Click Here for the update.

“Even if you put aside the Mexican military, you have illegals in the country…they’re protected with tactical gear using tactical strategies in police uniforms willing to ambush police officers. I think that’s bad enough,” said Mark Spencer, President of the Phoenix Police Enforcement Association.

While on the J.D. Hayworth show Tuesday, Mark Spencer announced that the suspects were hired by drug cartels to perform home invasions and murders.

The incident at 8329 W. Cypress St. resulted in the death of the homeowner. Between 50 and 100 rounds were fired at the house.

Spencer said a police officer told him that one of the men captured said they were completely prepared to ambush Phoenix police, but ran out of ammunition.

Stunning.

You know what they say, “good fences make good neighbors.” Nothing more needs be said.
