Attempted breaches of US military, law enforcement facilities are now a regular this reconnaissance by our enemies?

QUANTICO, VA - In another incident in what has become a disturbing trend at US military facilities, two men earlier this month attempted to force their way through the Quantico Marine Corps Base main gate, according to Potomac Local.

Officials told the outlet that the incident occurred on May 3. However, rank-and-file Marines were not told of the incident until nearly two weeks later on May 16, according to the New York Post.

Reportedly, in the early morning of May 3, two men inside a pickup truck drove up to the base’s main gate. They told the guard they were contractors for Amazon, and were making a delivery to Quantico Town’s post office. As a point of information the town is located inside the military base. 

The guard asked for identification and the two men were unable to provide approved credentials, and police also determined the vehicle had no affiliation to the base. Officers directed the truck to an area where it could be further inspected. The occupants were having none of it. 

“One of the military police officers noticed the river, ignoring the direct instructions of the officers, continued to move the vehicle past the holding area and attempted to access…Quantico,” spokesman Capt. Michael Curtis said. 

Officers then deployed “vehicle denial barriers,” which are roadblocks designed to keep out vehicles, which were successful in preventing access to the base. The occupants were detained and turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, meaning they were illegal aliens with no right to be in the country. 

Multiple sources told Potomac Local that at least one of the individuals inside the truck was a Jordanian national who illegally crossed into the U.S. via the open southern border within the recent past. They also confirmed that one of the occupants is on the terror watch list, which Quantico did not confirm. 

In March, a Chinese national was arrested at a military base in El Centro, California, as reported by Law Enforcement Today. In that case, the Chinese national entered the base without authorization and ignored orders to leave. He too was an illegal alien. Gordon Chang, a political commentator and expert on China believes the Chinese illegal may have been an operative of the Chinese communist government. 

“We have to assume this #Chinese national is a soldier or operative of some sort,” Chang tweeted. “Send him to #Guantanamo.” 

Less than one week later, Law Enforcement Today reported that yet another Chinese national was caught trespassing at the Twentynine Palms Marine Base in California. In that case, reported the Chinese national was able to get past gate guards, but was ultimately apprehended by military police, according to Marine Corps officials. That military-aged Chinese male was also in the country illegally, according to Chief Patrol Agent Gregory Bovino with Customs and Border Patrol. 

Two days after the Quantico incident, a vehicle drove into an outer perimeter gate at the White House, resulting in the death of the driver. In that case, Joe Biden was, as he usually is, away at his beachfront estate in Rehoboth, Delaware and not at the White House. The Secret Service confirmed there was no threat to the White House in the incident. 

After the incident, the Secret Service implemented enhanced security measures. The incident remains under investigation by both the Secret Service and Metro DC police. 

In yet another incident in April, a driver attempted to breach security at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story in Virginia. In that incident, the driver crashed into a hydraulic barricade and the suspect vehicle was engulfed in fire. Despite attempts by the base fire department to extinguish the blaze, the driver, who has yet to be identified, died. A public affairs officer at the base said the vehicle disregarded security checks and drove through the gate at high speed. 

At the beginning of April at Naval Base San Diego, an unmarked security vehicle belonging to the base’s security force breached a gate without stopping, which prompted activation of emergency barricades. The collision injured three occupants, including two civilian officers and one active-duty military member. 

“Out of an abundance of caution, our security team deployed the gate security barrier to prevent a vehicle from entering the base without proper vetting,” said spokesperson Krishna Jackson to NBC-7 San Diego. 

Two people were treated and released and one had to undergo evaluation, Jackson said. None of the occupants were identified. 

It is unknown what exactly is going on with all these breaches of military bases, but it cannot be beyond possibility that these are test runs to determine the vulnerability of our facilities and gauge the response to any threats. 

This all comes at a time when an estimated 10 million illegal aliens have entered the country in just over three years of Biden’s watch due to his non-enforcement and open border policies. 

And the biggest threat appears to be coming from China. Law Enforcement Today reported last week that more Chinese nationals, many of them military-aged males, crossed into the United States in the first two days of May than in all of 2021.
