China guards the US border

Yeah, so that's working out about as well as you'd assume it would:
A U.S. Customs and Border Protection watch commander at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach has admitted to running an illegal gun operation, authorities said. Wei Xu, 56, of Santa Fe Springs was arrested Feb. 5 after an investigation involving undercover officers to whom Xu sold three guns out of the trunk of his car, including an “off-roster” pistol not certified for sale in California, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.

He has been on unpaid administrative leave since his arrest and will be fired, said Ciaran McEvoy, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office.

In court Wednesday, Xu pleaded guilty to illegally selling guns on the internet, some of which he obtained by using his power as a law enforcement official, and to creating a fake company to avoid paying taxes, prosecutors said. He also pleaded guilty to illegally possessing unregistered firearms and making false statements to a federal agency about his involvement with a Chinese company to get a secret-level security clearance.
You can warble on about human equality all you like, if you wish. But sooner or later, reality, history, and the observable patterns of human behavior are going to slap you in the face.

And the further you diverge from reality, the harder the slap will be.

This is what happens when you hire foreigners into law enforcement. It's not great for them either.
When one liberal pet who is a cop shoots another liberal pet who is a criminal, pet cop goes to jail. Medical student and future neurosurgeon (he wuz getting his life together) O'Shea Terry was shot by a Chinese cop and now the Chinese cop is awaiting trial.

"Illegally possessing unregistered firearms"

Land of the free my ass.

Blogger Whitecloak July 19, 2019 10:37 AM  

This makes me wonder just how useful our border patrol could be, anyhow, with it being majority non-American.

They really do all need to go back. It ain't going to be pretty.

When CWII comes we know who to go to to get weapons.

Blogger Beardy Bear July 19, 2019 11:01 AM  

Indeed. There must be separation before the market will rally.

Blogger swiftfoxmark2 July 19, 2019 11:05 AM  

The American Southwest is pretty much toast at this point. Any remaining posterity Americans should leave it and let the Fake Americans fight over its failing infrastructure.

Submachine guns can be easily made with basic hand tools, and the plans are readily available.

An AK47 can be assembled from a shovel and a parts kit, again with basic hand tools. If you have access to a lathe and mill, you can make really nice stuff.

federal agency about his involvement with a Chinese company to get a secret-level security clearance.

Make hanging great again.

Blogger Crew July 19, 2019 11:41 AM  

@8: Yeah. It was a throw away line.

If you are without weapons when CWII comes it is too late.

Blogger Noah B. July 19, 2019 11:59 AM  

These cases are always strange. Someone trafficking illegal weapons is taking almost the same risk as trafficking narcotics with only a tiny fraction of the profit potential. How sharp do you have to be to figure that out? Makes me wonder if Xu was still working for China.

I mean ok.. so they turned out to be bad as customs agents... who knew? I mean they were so great at building the railroads...

Damn! Wish I'd had a chance to buy one!

You mean there was a Chinese agent that infiltrated one of our Federal agencies?

I'm shocked, SHOCKED that this happened.

By the way, is that a 20mm cannon cart in the picture? Damn!!

While the media and schools have pounded in our heads these few incidents of KKK cops not wanting to bust other KKK, ALL MY LIFE I have seen hispanic cops refusing to bust hispanics.
I recall an old boomer I knew from California years ago. Sexual assault on his daughter. Mexican neighbor.
Cops refused to arrest - some spanish was spoken. Some laughter at the end.
Then he said after his tribesman in blue left "And I'll do it again and get your wife too".
So the boomer got his .44 magnum and shot mr Brown rapist in the chest one time.
"Patricians Choice" I guess. It's what happens when all law and order breaks down.

Blogger Mr.MantraMan July 19, 2019 12:55 PM  

No foreign government would want to put select fire weaponry on American streets, that would be bad.

Blogger Ominous Cowherd July 19, 2019 1:18 PM  

@17, full auto is easier to make than semi. We'll have it if we want it.

Democratic voters love guns, but our side loves the kabuki theatre of trying to educate scared white liberals who actually believe in "gun control" all the while the rising tide of the People of Color are buying guns and loving guns and don't give two hoots about the white man's 2A or moronic attempts at gun control. In Chicago there are precincts that vote 100% Democratic party and home to more Glocks than the special forces.

Leland Yee state rep Bejing, CA got busted for an arms smuggling gig to other people of color who loves guns and want to own guns, and darn that good US citizen was going to see to it that they got guns.

The sh*t kicks off in this country whole ships full of Type 56 rifles and other goodies will be on there way to arm the glorious combatants.

Nah, that's likely a .50/12.7mm.

Not if the guns are free.

Blogger Noah B. July 19, 2019 2:50 PM  

Not if the guns are free.

Even in that unlikely scenario it makes little difference. The illegal drug market dwarfs the market for illegal guns, both in terms of overall size and in profit potential. By lowball estimates the illegal drug market in the US is five times the size of the entire legal small arms market.

c. 70-80% of Trump's Border Patrol and related agencies consists of non-Whites. It's a welcome wagon.

Woodpile Report has a link to What the Progressive Socialist Liberals have in store for Conservatives
That observes from history some things that should give us pause during this gun discussion.

1. The "othering" , today it is Whites/White Privelege etc. He gives historical examples of others
2. Arming the rabble with first class firepower.
3. The use of lists to target you and me.
4. The herding into the cities to kill you and me.

Its a sobering read with confincing examples that demonstrate how close we are to being genocided in our own land.

We have to be prepared to kill with prejudice when/if this starts to go down.

What it sounds like the guy was doing was using his LEO status to buy off roster firearms, something California law allows, and then selling those firearms to people who could not legally buy them. Cali gun laws are pretty screwed up. There have been several Cali LEOs get busted for this scam in the last couple of years.
Say you want the new Yeet Cannon 3000, but it is not an approved firearm for California Serfs to buy. So you find a cop to buy and import it into the state and pay him a premium. This is pretty much a scam that only works in California and maybe Massachusetts.

Looks like he got Federal charges for selling at a profit as a business venture without having an FFL. The ATF frowns on that more than they would than if you shot up a preschool.
This beats drugs, because if he had the right signatures on his paperwork he was entirely legal until he sold the firearm.

If it happened as you describe this was one of the most inept criminal schemes imaginable. After a sale, any future police recovery of that weapon would have led straight back to him. Drug trafficking looks brilliant by comparison.

IOW, he just could not resist the urge to chisel that last cent. Unfortunately for him, he was chiselling it off Uncle Sam, who takes a dim view of not getting paid.

Yup. Here in Southern Arizona the vast majority of them have surnames like Ramirez, Sanchez, and Garcia.
