Japanese to visit secret border compound on Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
    Tomorrow, December 7, a film crew from Japan will visit a secret compound on the US. border in Arizona. Activities on that ranch are thought by some to be so morally offensive that they violate US broadcast standards, thus baring visits by network cameras.
    Why are the Japanese visiting a ranch that is off-limits to US media? Is it commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor? If not, for what reason? Are they planning to invade the U.S.?
    According ranch owner, Glenn Spencer, the Japanese have expressed an interest in seeing a demonstration of a new border technology that combines an advanced sensor system with a high-speed drone, as well as activities of the American Border Patrol regarding illegal immigration.
    Spencer has been accused of running a hate group, but he denies it. "I love everybody," Spencer said. "Besides, how can people accuse me of terrible things when they even won't talk to me?", he added.
    Foreign news organizations,including Spanish-language outlets such as Univision and Televisa --- not bound by mainstream media codes of ethics --- have visited this mysterious compound as many as 20 times in the past six years.
    According to Spencer, none of the reports from these visits indicate anything untoward going on. In fact, most all reports were positive, he added.
    Only one US network visited this hangout in the past 6 years, but that was just for an airplane ride and they reported nothing about the nefarious goings on.
     When Spencer attempted to demonstrate his technology to an Arizona legislative body four years ago, two state senators walked out in disgust.
   Spencer's Operation BEEF, produced a map of the border fence that is considered by the mainstream media to be so pornographic that they won't mention it in mixed company.
    One local newspaper ignored standards of journalism and actually printed reports of activities on the infamous ranch.
    A couple of local Tucson TV stations have run some short stories as well, but reports of expected retribution by their parent networks have yet to surface.
    Some observers believe there may be a change in attitude with the incoming Trump Administration. "President-elect Donald Trump seems to have standards that differ from the mainstream media," Spencer said.
