RUSH: This is Josh in Phoenix. You’re next on the EIB Network. Josh, are you aware that there’s a woman on the Milwaukee county board of supervisors that do not think you live in a border state?
CALLER: She’s very much wrong.
RUSH: Peggy West is her name, and she says she would support the Arizona law but you’re a long way from the border so she can’t support it.
CALLER: Um, I’m not very far from the border at all, Rush.
RUSH: Yeah. You’re Ground Zero.
CALLER: That’s right. That’s right. I want to know why Mr. Obama and mainstream media is not talking about the Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge and how it’s been taken over by the Mexican cartel.
RUSH: The wildlife refuge where?
CALLER: The Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge. Americans are no longer able to go into the area. It’s been closed down by local law enforcement, and local law enforcement says they have no longer have control over that area, and they’re asking Obama for help, basically.
RUSH: There’s a wildlife refuge in Arizona, you’re talking about?
CALLER: Yes, sir. It touches up to just below Tucson.
RUSH: Okay, but nobody can go into it now?
CALLER: Yes, sir. Nobody’s allowed into it. Americans are not allowed into it.
CALLER: I guess out of fear that somebody might get hurt.
RUSH: Now, wait. Are Mexicans allowed in there? Is that what you’re telling me?
CALLER: No, the Mexican cartels are actually taking it over and are building forces down there and are basically at a standoff, they tell us.
RUSH: Does Peggy West know about this in Milwaukee? I haven’t heard of this. I assume Peggy West, she’s on the board of supervisors in Milwaukee, would have to know about this. I had not heard this.
CALLER: Yeah, they’re basically at a standoff right now.
RUSH: Okay, so a Mexican… Maybe I have heard of this, just not described this way. But a Mexican cartel is being permitted to ramp up in a wildlife refugee where Americans are now no longer allowed to enter?
CALLER: Yes, sir.
RUSH: And it’s a big standoff?
CALLER: Yes, sir.
RUSH: And Obama’s in favor of it?
CALLER: Obama refuses to answer to Sheriff Babeu down there, you know, asking for help basically. He says he’s got no control over his own county, which is larger than the state of Connecticut.
RUSH: Wow. All right. Well, I’m not going comment on this ’til I learn something about it and I haven’t heard it. And I am far more comfortable admitting ignorance than I am commenting on something I do not know that’s taken place. So let me look it up here. We still have Internet. We don’t have any e-mail. But I can still look this up. Thanks for the call.
RU.S.H: Okay, here it is from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, June of this year. It’s their website. ‘Recently there were reports in the news stating that the Buenos Aries National Wildlife Refuge was closed. This information is not correct. In early 2006, a small section of land (about 3% of the refuge) along the border was closed to visitation. However, no new restrictions are in place and the majority of the refuge remains open. Today, we are seeing a decline in violent activity in the southern most area thanks to ongoing cooperation between the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.’
Now, that’s the Fish & Wildlife Service website. That’s the regime. What do we believe? Do we believe the caller, Josh, or do we believe the government? Normally we would believe the government, but what do you do? That’s from June 2010. This is a little addendum. It’s their normal website, which is (summarized), ‘We’re the Fish and Wildlife Service and we’re really great, and here’s what we do and here’s how you can get our pamphlet. You know, just about it to Pueblo, Colorado, and open drawer eight and say you want a Fish & Wildlife Service Pamphlet!’ It’s that kinda stuff. Then off on the side is this, ‘By the way…’ It doesn’t look that way, but (paraphrased), ‘By the way, some people are saying we shut the place down and turned it over to the Mexicans — and it isn’t true!’ (laughs) I hate to admit this, but I’m torn. The guy on the phone sounded like a nice guy, Josh. He could be a kook, could not be a kook. But then we’ve got the Obama administration, and the Fish and Wildlife Service is a bunch of environmentalist wackos to begin with. So I don’t know what to do. I really don’t know what’s true here.
