She shows a video of a sheriff asking why the U.S. is currently in a bad place. "I was wondering why we're in the position that we're in and I just wanted to make this quick video to tell you why. The short answer is that we allowed it to. We got lazy. Nobody wants to have accountability for their actions," the sheriff says.
He adds: "We've been hit by evil, make no mistake about it. Your health, your family, your liberty, your freedoms. Everything has been attacked since day one." The sheriff calls on Americans to "start acting now" in order to get out of precarious situations. "Stop making excuses, don't be lazy, be smart. Make a plan, do what you can, network, get your personal affairs together and gear up," he says.
The "Steel Truth" host then patches in Tim Foley, the founder of Arizona Border Recon (AZBR), on satellite phone. Foley shares his observations at the U.S.-Mexico border area in Sasabe, Arizona. According to its website, AZBR seeks to "provide intelligence to the public in matters relating to the trafficking activities originating from the border in Arizona."
Foley says: "Right now, we have eyes on 11 armed cartel members. It looks like they're setting up a base right on the border. They're on the hills right on the Mexican side. They don't even give a damn, they're oblivious and they don't even care."
The AZBR founder adds that the cartel members are removing the fence panels that serve to keep out illegal immigrants. "They're removing all the panels laid out here. I think what they're doing is they're keeping an eye out." According to Foley, the area is heavily contested between cartels. "They want these hills [and] it looks like they're reinforcing their positions out here," he says. (Related: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says border situation worsening into "a firing war" as cartel members take shots at National Guard, law enforcement.)
Aside from Foley, Vandersteel also interviews Oregon gubernatorial candidate Paul Romero. The Republican candidate is set to run against incumbent Democratic Gov. Kate Brown. Romero's campaign website features a link to Lawfare Ammo, which are legal documents against Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) mandates by state governments. (Related: Papers, please: Oregon demands that residents show "proof of vaccination" in order to live life.)
Vandersteel lauds Romero's efforts to help Oregonians fight for their health freedom through lawfare. "You're using your platform to help others in your state – which actually can be replicated nationwide," she says. The Brighteon.TV host then asks about how Romero came up with the idea.
"Basically, I started getting calls about what Oregonians can do and if there's something more that I can do as a candidate. I really didn't have the answer to that question, so I started talking to people that actually had law information that was pertinent. As I got to know more of it, I just kept on getting more requests," Romero says.
The GOP candidate continues: "I was responding with emails that just became huge – but it took too much time. Finally, I put together the Lawfare Ammo documents. We put it together and made it a lot easier. It even includes U.S. Supreme Court precedents that work in our favor in this regard." Romero adds that the people can download and edit the documents depending on the situation.
Aside from this, Romero has also started work on a court case involving elected Oregon officials. "There's actual law that states if you're in violation of Oregon statute as an elected official, you must be immediately removed from office. Well, we have a long list of people and you can see some major changes in Oregon pretty quick," he tells Vandersteel.
The efforts of Foley for border security and that of Romero for health freedom appear to align with the sheriff's advice to "start acting now." Vandersteel also agrees with the sheriff's words, calling them "sage advice."
She continues: "When you look back at what [former] President [Donald] Trump accomplished in four years, we Americans accomplished together because we built this. It looked a lot better than the stark comparison of [incumbent President Joe] Biden, who has just destroyed this country in 10 short months. But we can rebuild it."
