Preposterous

July 28, 2014

Conservative (though often independent) columnist George Will stunned many when he told Fox News host Chris Wallace: “The idea that we can’t assimilate these 8-year-old criminals with their teddy bears is preposterous”, adding that the US should handle the problem because it is capable of doing so.

This is indicative of how difficult and emotional the border situation has become and how successful it is to use children for political purposes. It is becoming more and more apparent that Obama is using this influx of children to force his dream of amnesty. This use of children may be less dangerous than Hamas’ use of children as shields, but it is the same basic and disgusting principle.

While George Will is correct in saying the US can handle the estimated 60,000 children that have already crossed the border, the truly “preposterous” thing is that until the border is secured, that number will just increase to the point where the US can’t handle it. There has already been a 117% increase in children crossing in the past year.

It is also “preposterous” that Obama has no intention of securing the border and is now preparing to issue an executive order granting the amnesty he cannot get Congress to approve. Just the reporting of this possibility is sure to entice more to cross illegally. Whether this comes from blind adherence to an agenda or pure political manipulation, the flood at the border will increase as a result.

Seeing those children at the border tugs at everyone’s heart strings, not just George Will’s, but there are more than “8-year-olds” crossing the border. There are cartel members, gang members, and possible international terrorists taking advantage of Obama’s immigration folly. While border agents focus on taking care of children, the border is an open door to all, and that is incredibly dangerous.

Emotions need to be put aside and the border needs to be properly secured before this can be dealt with properly. It is truly “preposterous” that Obama chooses to ignore the consequences of his actions. George Will knows this, but emotions got the better of him.

Ridiculous Reid Rhetoric

July 17, 2014

We have an urgent humanitarian crisis occurring at our southern border brought on by a flow of (mostly) children crossing the border illegally. These children are not evading border agents; they are searching them out in order to get amnesty and the benefits an Obama executive order produced. These illegal crossings cannot currently be controlled or stopped by the totally overwhelmed federal agents assigned to the border. What would you call this?

The border is securesaid Harry Reid recently. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich [(D-N.M.)] talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.” Perhaps both Reid and Heinrich don’t watch TV, read the papers, bother to keep up with current events, or misunderstand the meaning of “secure”. More than likely, they are both just partisan fools forcing an agenda.

Unfortunately, they are not alone. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, another Democrat, wants us to believe that children crossing illegally and handing themselves over to border agents ‘proves’ that the border is secure. This is as inane as Homeland Security telling us the recent deportation of 40 adults and children (over 60,000 children have crossed in the past 9 months) ‘proves’ the White House means business. It only proves that White House business is amnesty.

The definition of “secure” for many Democrats is as strangely nuanced as President Clinton’s definition of “is”. The White House assures us that border security is at an all-time high, citing the money and guards thrown at the problem as proof. Using that criterion, our public education system should be the best the world has ever seen, yet, many kids are graduating high school still unable to read at an 8th grade level.

Money is not the answer and Reid’s ridiculous rhetoric is an insult – and the whole world is laughing.

Stupid Border Line

July 11, 2014

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes displayed “superior intelligence”, nuance, and insight by insisting that too much security at the border is our problem. He tells us that the border has never been more secure and that increased security is responsible for the humanitarian crisis that is now occurring.

He ignorantly explains: “If the border was not well staffed and protected, agents probably wouldn’t be there to apprehend the unprecedented number of unaccompanied minor children who are showing up”. He further states that more security “could make the crisis even worse”.

These so-called “apprehended” children are searching out border agents in order to turn themselves in to get amnesty and US benefits. They are overwhelming border guards who are now fully engaged in child care rather than border security, thereby, creating an open border for anyone wanting to enter illegally. That open border may be Hayes’ dream come true, but it is extremely dangerous for the country.

In Hayes’ twisted logic, removing more border guards would stop these children from crossing. That is insane, but it is the world according to MSNBC and many other deranged liberals. Anything negative said about Obama is turned around and treated as a positive no matter how stupid or outrageous it is. This is knee-jerk liberalism at its best or, more accurately, its worst.

Labeling this only as a humanitarian crisis is just another rhetorical ploy. Yes, it is a humanitarian crisis, but it is also a government, immigration, border, security, social, and leadership crisis. It is the epitome of administration failure on display for all to see – and it is insulting to have Chris Hayes insist we drink his liberal Kool-Aid. You are an ass, Mr. Hayes, and you should be ashamed of yourself.

Right now, there is more security being used to keep reporters away from this “humanitarian” crisis than there is to keep illegal immigrants from crossing the border. How insane is that?

Obama Worse Than Carter

July 10, 2014

Jimmy Carter has been acknowledged by a majority on both sides of the aisle as being an ineffective, weak president, particularly on foreign affairs; therefore, increasing comparisons of Obama to Carter are a sure sign that Obama is failing badly. With more than two years remaining in his term, Obama is on a path to earning a worse legacy than Carter.

A recent poll found president Obama to be the worst president since WWII with more voters feeling that Romney would have been better. This places Carter above Obama, making a mockery of the continued positive spin coming from unconditional Obama supporters.

The economy shrank at an annual rate of 2.9% during the first three months of 2014, the worst non-recession contraction in over 40 years. The liberal New Republic magazine, however, ignores this and wants us to believe that a monthly job report for June shows the economy skipping first gear and kicking into second gear when, in fact, it is going in reverse.

Our southern border is being overrun with children crossing illegally into the country because of Obama’s personal immigration policy and reluctance to act, creating an overwhelming situation. CNN’s Sally Kohn, however, assures us: “This is not a border crisis. These kids are coming to the border, they are getting stopped, the border is working”. If this is considered “working”, one wonders what a non-functional border looks like to Kohn.

The Daily Kos, just four months ago, argued that Obama’s foreign policy made a lot of sense and was advancing our interests around the globe. This is the same foreign policy that is proving worse than Carter’s, reducing confidence and credibility in the US in all our allies and emboldening our enemies to act aggressively.

Emotional investment in Obama has blocked reality for many, but comparisons to Jimmy Carter have to take a toll. If those comparisons shred the blinders unconditional supporters wear, they could end up being a positive for Carter’s legacy. That, of course, would lower Obama’s legacy even further.

Obama’s Rock Bottom Still to Come

July 9, 2014

From Alex Castellanos at CNN

Everywhere you walk, Mr. President, the world unravels. Americans are whispering that each political missile you fire seems to hit not its target but our own house…Your Veterans Administration is a dysfunctional mess…Your immigration agents are changing diapers and crying for fresh underwear…Your own signature initiative, the Affordable Care Act, has turned on you…Your Supreme Court is telling you to read the manual that came with your office…You are protected by the thinly manned barricades of an attorney general who refuses to investigate misconduct in your executive offices…In foreign affairs, you have undone one of the great accomplishments of the 20th century…Young people who voted for you to earn a better life than their parents are now living with their parents…You have now been reduced to pathetically small political “listening tours”… Behind the smile, we see an ego inflated beyond merit. Your intellectual detachment, we now find, was merely cluelessness…The road ahead is worse for you…

Read it all here: Obama hasn’t hit rock bottom yet

Request Underwear Elsewhere

June 24, 2014

The Department of Homeland Security is trying to fill an order for thousands of men’s underwear needed for the influx of detainees caught illegally crossing our border. Perhaps a request should go out to Mexico and Central America for help in covering the asses of their citizens who are coming here illegally. Why is it that we get no help at all from these countries? Do we even ask for help, or do we just assume responsibility?

We are being bombarded with people (including hardcore criminals and some disease-ridden) rather than missiles, but it is still a bombardment – and a foreign invasion. Isn’t that a job for our military? Isn’t it time to treat this problem as something more than just a humanitarian issue?

It has already become dangerous and our government has made no effort to stop the flow. In fact, this administration has announced to the world that the gates are wide open. Couldn’t we at least require them to bring a change of underwear? Or is that racist?

Our Government is Failing Its Responsibilities

June 16, 2014

The Preamble to the Constitution tells us very succinctly why our government exists: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence (sic), promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…Our government is currently failing to live up to these basic responsibilities.

Justice” for our government has been ideologically distorted to cater to minorities at the expense of the majority in order to advance the current administration’s policies. The Justice Department, led by Eric Holder, is surrounded in controversy with issues such as aggressive probing of journalists, the IRS scandal, drone attacks, and much more. It has selectively decided what to pursue and not pursue based on politics rather than justice and laws are being rewritten or ignored.

Domestic tranquility” has been severely hampered by the political partisanship pervading Congress. President Obama has established an “us against them” atmosphere for political gain and policies are being advanced that widen the divide in the country.

Providing for the country’s defense is the most egregious failure of our government. Our southern border is open due to policies set in place unilaterally by president Obama resulting in known Mexican gang members as well as possible terrorists entering the country with impunity. Obama’s abandonment of Iraq resulted in al Qaeda taking over and possibly gaining an entire country with its resources to use against us. Iran, on the verge of having nuclear weapons, may easily fill the void in Iraq or aid the terrorists to our detriment. Afghanistan is sure to follow suit when Obama’s declared abandonment comes to fruition. Putin is fearlessly resurrecting the USSR, endangering the U.S. and the entire world.

Social policies encouraged by our current government do not “promote the general Welfare”. These policies promote the “specific welfare” of groups that are politically advantageous for a transformation of America that will do nothing to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”. This transformation is designed to prune our liberties to fit an idealistic agenda contrary to American traditions.

Our government’s failure to live up to these responsibilities is glaring and frightening. If we don’t get our government back to basics soon, there will be no future for our form of government.

Look Behind the Curtain

June 12, 2014

We are being told Dave Brat’s upset of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the Virginia Republican primary was a Tea Party win. This comes after a long media campaign to convince us that the Tea Party is dead. The Tea Party was sneered upon and belittled at every opportunity in order to convince us it was irrelevant. Why, then, has there been such a quick and unanimous acknowledgment of its success?

Along with this acknowledgment comes a concentrated effort to discredit Cantor’s muddled stance on immigration as a factor and therein lies one answer. Amnesty for illegal immigrants is being rammed down the country’s throat with executive orders from president Obama who, unilaterally, is defining immigration policies his way. This has become more important than discrediting the Tea Party.

Brat made Cantor’s softness on immigration an issue. By trying to straddle the middle ground on immigration, Cantor alienated voters in his very conservative district as well as across the state. Had Cantor taken a definitive stance either way, he may have won. Lindsey Graham, an unapologetic champion of bipartisanship and compromise on immigration, won in South Carolina, proving that voters appreciate conviction. That win is being spun as a defeat for the Tea Party by those claiming Brat’s win to be a Tea Party success.

Political spin is everywhere and it is getting harder and harder to know what is and what isn’t. Our watchdog “fourth estate” stopped watching and is now part of the problem. We have a dysfunctional government led by a runaway administration backed by a sycophantic media. Voters need to look behind the curtain of propaganda to fully understand what is going on both here and around the world – and bring an end to this mess. If not, that curtain will solidify into an iron curtain, repeating a history – a history no longer taught in our progressive schools.

It not only can happen here – it IS happening here.

Immigration Insanity

June 9, 2014

President Obama has instituted a foolish immigration policy based on nothing more than idealistic, personal feelings. This is aggravating ongoing immigration problems, creating new ones, and sending a message to the world that crossing the border illegally is the easy way to immigrate to the U.S. and receive government benefits. It is insanity.

Obama made it clear to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that many immigration laws currently on the books should not be enforced. He then issued an executive order halting deportation of young illegal immigrants. He has set a personal policy in place that is snowballing into a nightmare.

Border officials and family and immigration court systems are now overwhelmed with children traveling without parents crossing into the U.S at our Southwest border. There has been a 92% increase over last year (47,000 caught since October) of children illegally crossing the border, a direct result of Obama’s executive order. It is predicted that there will be 60,000 or more children caught crossing the border this year.

To deal with this influx, the administration is now going to provide lawyers for these children, helping them fight our laws to remain in the country. This is in addition to having to provide food and shelter. It is certainly admirable, and necessary, to provide aid for these helpless children, but they have been put in jeopardy by Obama’s executive order. Creating a border crossing free-for-all enticed desperate parents to allow their children to set out on such a perilous and illegal journey.

Illegal immigration problems have been exasperated by Obama’s supplanting of existing laws with his own laws. Furthermore, refusal to secure the border, a pre-requisite for reform, continues to be his administration’s stance in discussions of reform. The results of his policies are pouring in across our borders.

We must stop the insanity by sealing the border and allowing real reform, not just amnesty, to be discussed. How much more damage will be incurred before that happens?

Screamers Are Winning

May 28, 2014

Aided by the media, the progressive left has re-defined comprehensive immigration reform as amnesty, but there is nothing comprehensive about it at all. Illegal immigrants are only one aspect of the immigration issue but have now become the sole purpose behind “reform” for both sides of the aisle.

The GOP originally pushed for real reform which, rationally, called for securing the border before dealing with other immigration issues. This idea was beaten down with the race card as if securing the border was a hateful thing to do. Convinced by the media that this was popular opinion and fearing a loss of votes, the GOP caved and has sheepishly allowed the entire issue to be framed as amnesty.

Obamacare became law in much the same way. It was conceived as a way to provide health insurance to the uninsured, less than 10% of the population, and that remained the driving factor. Details were thrown together hastily in order to get the health care law passed by a Congress favorable to Obama. Now, 90% of the population suffers the consequences of allowing our health care system to be idealistically framed and “reformed”.

Abortion has been framed as “pro-choice”; traditional marriage has been framed as “discriminatory”; religious belief has been framed as “offensive”; opposition to Obama policies has been framed as “racist”; skepticism of man-made global warming has been framed as “denial”; and self-indulgent, morally bankrupt social trends have been framed as “progressive”.

This is the means by which the country is being dismantled brick by brick for “fundamental transformation”. The screamers are re-framing issues to advance their agenda while the silent majority, tired of being called names, being shouted down, and being labeled racists, allow it to happen.

Immigration reform could be the last brick dismantled to achieve total “transformation”. Those given amnesty will show appreciation with votes as will those entering the country through a porous border. American traditions will be trashed, a one-party political system will emerge, wealth will be re-distributed until the economy collapses, and a new third-world country will emerge to replace the leader of the free world – all because the silent majority allowed the screamers to win.
