True News Shortwave Radio Programs
True News has some good news programs. One of the things I like is that rather than having some talking head give his views on events in a place he may never have been, or even heard of, True News interviews people on the scene.
Tonight I listened to a half hour interview with the leader of the Texas Border Volunteers.
Texas Border Volunteers Home Page
This is a group formed by Texas ranchers along the border, for mutual protection. They observe and report illegal immigrant intrusions to the appropriate law enforcement agencies.
The gentleman who spoke on the radio tonight is a vet, who got the group started when it became obvious Washington wasn't just ignoring the problem, but was actively aiding and abetting illegal immigration. The speaker pointed out that currently, Mexican nationals are simply fined $26.00 (if they have it) when they are apprehended, and sent back across the border. He said that the two illegal immigrants who killed the Border Patrol officer last month had been captured in the U.S. and released on six previous occasions.
Things are far worse down there than the main stream media has been telling us. Ranchers receive telephone calls saying "we know where your kids go to school, we know where your wife shops. If you don't cooperate with us, we'll kill them."
Dr. Mike Vickers, of Brooks County, Texas said that many ranchers have abandoned their residences and moved 50 miles back from the border, to cities. They go out and check on their cattle and their windmills, etc but are afraid to stay there after dark. He said that when he travels in the area of his own ranch, he carries two pistols and an AR-15.
I like hearing from "the horses mouth" on subjects I'm interested in. I don't want to listen to a panel of "experts" sitting around a coffee table cutting each other off in the search for face time on tv. Tonight the broadcast was on 5850 khz, and came in loud and clear. I started listening at midnight, but there's a program schedule on the True News web page, True News Broadcast Schedule .
As is true of almost every conservative HF radio transmission facility in the U.S. True News is based on a Christian world view. I have no problem with this, since I share most of the conservative Christian communities views on the practical side of life.
If you are up at night and have a shortwave, it's a good station to listen to. It gives you a grasp of events you can't get from the MSM.
