Confirmed: Richard lied about Executive Order
More than a year ago, I posted this about my years-long search to verify Richard’s story that Clinton ordered border guards to shoot migrants on sight in a super-secret Executive Order. Please go there and read it to see what I uncovered then.
Well, a few weeks ago, I finally spoke on Twitter to Jenn Budd about this. She said that NO, THERE WAS NO SUCH ORDER.
I also said that Richard claimed to have shot and killed a migrant woman who had a baby, that the guilt drove him out of the force. Budd said that wasn’t likely and he sounds like a wannabe.
She was on the force at the same time Richard was. She verifies his claims that many border guards are corrupt and participate in such things as smuggling and human trafficking, but she says that this Executive Order DID NOT EXIST.
Why did Richard lie about such a thing? As I wrote in my post last year,
The only reason I can think of for Richard’s claim of murdering somebody, is political, to suit his usual narrative that Democratic presidents are evil and only conservative presidents can be trusted to do the right thing. Or maybe it was from some narcissistic desire to paint an image of himself as bigger and badder than he really was, in order to impress people.
You can see the Twitter thread here.
WHAT ELSE DID YOU LIE ABOUT, RICHARD?
Or he was mistaking Clinton for Palpatine.

Two words: TOUGH GUY.
“Tough Guy” is a mind game label from in a Seventies pop psychology called Transactional Analysis. Tough Guy is when a small or weak man hangs out with Real Tough Guys (like gangsters or dictators) or claims to have done Tough Guy things to SHOW everyone He’s a Tough Guy, too. (“SEE? ME TOUGH! SEE? SEE? SEE?”
And those tho brag the most about how Tough they are have never seen Action themselves. (Ask any combat veteran.) This guy sounds more like the preachers who falsely claim to have been Navy SEALs or the like. (According to the SEAL who keeps the database to weed out such stolen valor frauds, a LOT of them are preachers.)
