1 – Abbott sending tank-like vehicles to Mexico border amid ‘invasion’
The Washington Examiner reports: Fresh off declaring an “invasion” at the Texas-Mexico border, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s administration has directed the state’s military to send tank-like military vehicles to 10 spots on the international boundary, the Washington Examiner has learned.
The Texas National Guard will deploy 10 M113 Armored Personnel Carriers to the southern border in the coming days, the Texas Military Department told the Washington Examiner on Monday.
The state will also boost aircraft flights over certain regions, though the department did not specify in its Nov. 17 internal announcement how many flights or helicopters may be sent down.
The tank-like vehicles are primarily used to transport troops safely into dangerous areas or places with rough terrain that vehicles cannot get through. These armored vehicles were originally used during the Vietnam War and are bulletproof and can weather minor explosions outside.
A report by the Texas Tribune and Army Times stated that roughly 50 soldiers will be trained in how to operate the Armored Personnel Carriers and sent down south with them.
Texas Military Department service members work side by side with the Texas Department of Public Safety & other law enforcement to stop illegal activities from crossing the Texas-Mexico border.
Thank you for keeping our state safe. pic.twitter.com/V9ezpAhvVa

ANNETA G.: In my humble opinion, they need a whole lot more than 10 of these personnel carriers to protect the border. However, none of this is going to do any good at all as long as Biden and the Democrats keep dangling their amnesty carrot. The avalanche is coming.
2 – Michael Bloomberg Apologizes to China
The Free Beacon reports:Michael Bloomberg, who leads the Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Board, apologized to attendees of his annual economic forum after former British prime minister Boris Johnson called the Chinese government a “coercive autocracy.”
Bloomberg on Thursday said that Johnson’s remarks were “his thoughts and his thoughts alone” and were not cleared with him personally. “Some may have been insulted or offended last night by parts of the speaker’s remarks referencing certain countries and their duly elected leaders,” the former New York City mayor told the crowd at the Bloomberg New Economy Forum in Singapore. “To those of you who were upset and concerned by what the speaker said, you have my apologies.” Johnson had referred to China and Russia as “two former communist tyrannies in which power has once again been concentrated in the hands of a single ruler” in a blistering speech to an audience that included China’s vice president and Chinese business leaders.
Bloomberg has long defended the Chinese government, but his apology takes on new significance given his position as an adviser to President Joe Biden’s Defense Department. As chairman of the Defense Innovation Board, Bloomberg advises the secretary of defense and other Pentagon leaders on “emerging technologies and innovative approaches that [the Defense Department] should adopt to ensure U.S. technological and military dominance.”
During his opening address at the forum, Bloomberg praised Chinese vice president Wang Qishan as a “troubleshooter,” “problem solver,” and “longtime friend.”

3 – Biden’s ‘pandemic is over’ comment comes back to haunt him as he seeks $10B in new COVID funding
Fox News reports: Key Republicans in the House and Senate are signaling opposition to President Biden’s request for another $10 billion in funding to battle COVID, a request Biden made two months after he declared “the pandemic is over.”
The White House said this week that while COVID is “no longer the disruptive force it was” a few years ago, new subvariants of the virus are still a threat. Its letter to outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said additional funding is needed to help the U.S. “stay prepared in the face of an unpredictable virus.”
“That is why we are requesting funding to help prepare for a possible winter surge, smooth the path to commercialization for vaccines and therapeutics, accelerate research and treatment for long COVID, and develop next-generation vaccines and treatments,” the White House Office of Management and Budget wrote to Pelosi. The White House wants $9 billion to fight COVID domestically and another $1 billion to help other countries keep COVID at bay.
But after trillions of dollars of spending on emergency COVID relief that many blame for high inflation, Republicans are saying enough is enough.
President Biden wants ANOTHER $10 billion for “COVID funding.”
He said back in September that the “pandemic is over.”
He wants Congress to spend more money we do not have on a pandemic that, by his own words, does not exist.
