Obama Administration Turns Down Inexpensive And Successful Solution To Illegal Immigration Invasion Even When It Is Offered To Government FREE

June 27, 2012

This story ought to make you angry.

When we were trying to build the fence, Democrats – you know, the people who keep demonizing Republicans as “obstructionist” – blocked it at every turn and said it wouldn’t work.  And we were responding that it worked better than NOTHING.  Well, now there’s a REAL solution that is inexpensive and would literally be able to completely stop ALL illegal immigration dead if it were only implemented.

Well, now we know one thing: Democrats don’t WANT to stop illegal immigration.  Democrats WANT illegal immigration; they want as much illegal immigration as they can possibly get.  They want it because they have cynically and frankly treasonously concluded that they can exploit it politically.

High-Tech Solution to Border Problems Ignored

U.S.-MEXICO BORDER — Government spending to secure the United States’ southern border with Mexico has surged since 9/11 with mixed results.

The number of illegal immigrants in the United States is down, while drug smuggling has only gotten worse.
 
John Ladd works on the same Arizona ranch his family has owned since 1896. His 14,000-acre lot includes 10 miles along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Out there, you don’t have to look far to see the effects of illegal immigration.
 
“I’ve had a group of people, at least one group a day since Thanksgiving. I’ve been robbed, I’ve had them in the house,” Ladd told CBN News.
 
But migrant workers aren’t the real problem. What worries Ladd most is the drugs crossing onto his land.
 
“We’ve had five drive-thrus with 14 trucks total since February of this year,” he said.
 
According to government estimates, only about 15 percent of those illegally crossing the border are caught. And the fence isn’t making much of a difference.
 
“This has been a smugglers point for a hundred years. They cut the mesh out at the bottom and the side and across the top, and then they open it up and ramp over,” Ladd explained. “This is a little bit better than a seven strand barbed wire fence, but not much.”
 
Hi-Tech Possibilities
 
Arlington, Texas, is home of the Cowboys stadium, and one of the most technologically advanced municipalities in the country.

CBN News met a man there who developed the security system for the Super Bowl, and may also hold the key to securing the southern border.
 
“The fence is a wonderful tool if you want to stop wildlife, if you want to stop livestock, if you want to stop somebody for 30 seconds,” Dan Hammons, owner of Hammons Enterprises, explained.
 
“We think the border needs to be a line in the sand as opposed to a wide area,” he added.

“If a person crawls over that fence or crosses that border illegally, we have a wide array of sensing technologies that will set off an alarm and will turn on a camera on a node tower,” Hammons said. “So you can determine, is it a person, is it a deer, is it a cow.”
 
“With our system, I’m confident that we are going to detect 100 percent of the people crossing that border illegally,” he boldly claimed.
 
Key Benefits
 
Hammons’ system also costs about $1 million less per mile than a border fence. While there are already many cameras on the border, there is a major difference in this network: bandwidth.
 
“We don’t have to compress high-definition video. We can pump thousands of video streams thousands of miles, and you are looking at it in true real time,” Hammons explained.
 
“So it gives us the ability in a border environment to actually track somebody with a video camera all of the time for as far north as we want to go,” he said.
 
The objective is to give U.S. Border Patrol more accurate and timely information, which in turn keeps them safe.

“We’re going to add a layer of safety for these men and women that are on the border every day putting their lives at risk,” Hammons said. “We’re not going to send one person to apprehend a group of people armed with AK-47s.”
 
Ladd loves the idea because of the accuracy and timeliness that Hammons’ system could provide.
 
“Absolutely in favor of that technology, but yet we can’t seem to come to terms that that’s the way to do it,” Ladd said. “And so we depend on a 10-foot wall that an old woman can climb over with help.”
 
“On our ranch… the length of it, you could have one guy sitting at a computer module and he’d be able to monitor that whole 10-and-a-half miles. One person!” Ladd continued.
 
Government Cold Shoulder
 
Still, decision makers in Washington have repeatedly turned down Hammons’ ideas.
 
“They have shut the door in our face,” he said.

“We offered to do this for them for free. We wanted to build a three-mile section of it for free. No cost or obligation to the government, all we wanted was an operational evaluation,” Hammons recalled.
 
He hinted that the system’s potential may be viewed by some as a political problem.
 
“We’re going to be able to tell the truth about what’s going on on the border,” Hammons said. “We’re going to be able to show the American public exactly what is happening down there.”
 
In the meantime, ranchers along Arizona’s border feel like they’re stuck in a war zone.

“Regardless of what Homeland Security and Border Patrol says, the border isn’t as safe as it’s ever been,” Ladd said. “There’s more drugs coming right now than ever before.”
 
“A guy driving a Border Patrol truck up and down the fence isn’t going to cut it,” he added.

Watch the report here.

Senators John Kyl and John McCain of Arizona are both livid over Obama’s response to the Supreme Court verdict allowing police to question suspects about their illegal immigration status by refusing to allow the federal government to share immigration status dat with state law enforcement.  McCain rightly pointed out that it was the most childish behavior he had ever seen coming from a president.  And Kyl pointed out that the president’s reasoning for his executive dictates that amount to amnesty for all illegals other than those who had committed felonies (i.e. illegals can commit all the misdemeanors they WANT with impunity) were baseless by the administration’s own previous statements.  Obama is justifying his decisions on the premise that there are insufficient resources to remove illegal immigrants; but when the US Senate has told Obama they would increase federal border security resources if the government needed them, the administration has previously stated that they have all the resources they NEED to enforce the laws which require the federal government to act to remove ALL illegals.  As we speak, Obama is continuing this bogus charade: on the one hand he’s claiming resources are too scarce to follow the law which requires him to remove every illegal immigrant the system comes across; at the same time he is now claiming that he doesn’t need any help from the state of Arizona whatsoever.

And now we find out that Obama is trying to exploit illegal immigration and the misery and crime that follow from it in order to try to win re-election.

This is an administration that has compared illegal immigration to jaywalking.  This is an administration that views Obama as being above the law, as being a king who can abrogate the law and do whatever he pleases.

Barack Obama is merely a new variant of fascist.  Where Hitler exploited white Aryan racist policies to benefit politically, Obama is cynically exploiting black and Hispanic racist policies to benefit politically.  In a nation whose premise has been that it is a realm of laws in which justice is supposed to be blind to the race and to the political party of those who break it, this is a stab in the guts of everything our nation is supposed to be.

After Supreme Court Rules Arizona Law Immigration Checks Valid, Obama Orders Federal Government NOT To Accept Lawfully Arrested Illegal Immigrants

June 26, 2012

Barack Obama and Democrats had TWO FULL YEARS to pass legislation to legally deal with illegal immigration and the 12-20 million illegal immigrants who are “occupying” America.  Democrats not only had overwhelming control of the House of Representatives, but they even had a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.  It was politically inconvenient for Obama and the Democrats to lift so much as a pinky finger to deal with the issue, so Barry Hussein broke his word to the Hispanic community and left them twisting in the wind.

The above is all 100 percent true.

Obama also told Hispanic organizations that he could not simply issue an executive order to enact the dream act by dictate.  How did he put it?

“The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you, not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”

That’s right.  Obama told them that such an executive order was “not how our system works” (i.e. it would be un-American for him to issue such an order).  He said it was “not how our democracy functions” (i.e. it would be anti-democratic to issue such an order).  And he said it was “not how our Constitution is written” (i.e. it would be unconstitutional for him to issue such an order). 

And then Obama did the very thing that he said would be un-American, anti-democratic and unconstitutional for him to do.  So when I point out the fact that Barack Hussein Obama is a fascist tyrant, I’m merely judging him by his very own criteria.

The thing about Obama is that only Obama matters to Obama.  The rest of you can burn for all he cares.  So when his election prospects started looking weak, well, it was suddenly time for Obama to pretend he gave a damn about Hispanics again. 

So the Supreme Court issues its decision yesterday on the Arizona Law.  It was kind of a wash: three components of the law were struck down, but the MAJOR provision of the law that allowed police to question those whom they reasonably suspected were illegally in the United States was maintained in a unanimous decision.  And many argue that provision that passed was the real guts of the law.

Well, as I pointed out, Barack Obama is a fascist.  He views himself like a king who is above the law, above the states, above the separation of powers and the rest of the Constitution, above the Congress and above the Supreme Court.  So what did he do?

As soon as the Supreme Court issued its ruling, Obama ordered Homeland Security to suspend all immigration agreements with the state of Arizona:

The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police.

Administration officials, speaking on condition they not be named, told reporters they expect to see an increase in the number of calls they get from Arizona police — but that won’t change President Obama’s decision to limit whom the government actually tries to detain and deport.

It amounts to a giant Obama middle finger to the Supreme Court and to the state of Arizona and every legal citizen of that state.

All Obama gives a flying damn about is demagoguing this issue to temporarily grab the Hispanic vote.  After that, he’ll screw them the moment it is to his advantage to do so.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio had been working to do the very thing that Obama imposed illegally by tyrannical dictate.  Had Senator Rubio been allowed to advance his legislation, Hispanics could have had their status by permanent legally enacted process:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama’s surprise decision to halt U.S. deportations of young illegal immigrants has all but killed a Republican effort to fashion legislation that could have won political points with Hispanic voters in November’s elections.

Republican Senators, including Marco Rubio, had been working behind the scenes for months on a bill that would have allowed some children of illegal immigrants a chance to stay in the United States legally while pursuing college or military careers.

But Obama’s announcement has effectively made the Rubio plan moot, further complicating Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s search for an immigration policy.

CNN contributor Ruben Navarrette wrote an article with the title “GOP version of DREAM Act holds promise.”  He pointed out that:

San Diego (CNN) — You may have heard that a group of Republicans in Congress — including GOP rock star and possible vice presidential pick Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida — are getting ready to introduce their version of the DREAM Act.You also may have heard that Democratic lawmakers and liberal advocacy groups despise the Republican alternative and derisively label it “DREAM Act Lite.”

As someone who has written about immigration for more than 20 years and hammered Democrats and Republicans (including Rubio) when appropriate, I call the GOP approach to the DREAM Act something else: A common sense solution. It could break a stalemate and improve millions of lives. And it could only be opposed for ugly partisan reasons.

Marco Rubio pointed out n an interview I saw on Fox News that his work had been demonized by Democrats – as echoed by Navarrette above.  And Rubio noted that when Obama imposed by executive tyranny basically the VERY SAME THING that Rubio’s legislation would have done legally and legislatively according to the Constitution, suddenly the same thing they’d demonized when it was a Republican’s idea was wonderful.

Democrats are that dishonest and that hypocritical.

Here’s what Obama pulled off – he stopped the legislative process to help Hispanics dead in its tracks just so he could exploit them:

No surprise here, as killing Sen. Marco Rubio’s proposed DREAM Act was exactly the point of Obama’s announcement on Friday. But it certainly is interesting that the same guy who took to the pages of Time today to urge Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform is the same guy who has been frantically working behind the scenes to spike Rubio’s legislation. Mission accomplished:

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said Monday that President Barack Obama’s move last week to block deportations for some young illegal immigrants in the U.S. has likely derailed his own similar efforts, at least until after the election.

“People are going to say to me, ‘Why are we going to need to do anything on this now. It has been dealt with. We can wait until after the election,’” Sen. Rubio said in an interview. “And it is going to be hard to argue against that.”

[…]

“The game changer here was Marco Rubio,’’ said Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum, one of a number of groups that has been pushing the White House on reform. “He was a legitimate conservative trying to find a solution to the broken immigration system … and the administration realized they had to do something.’’

So here’s Republicans trying to work within the system to do something that dishonest, lying Democrat demagogues dishonestly say Republicans won’t do.  And what happens?  The Fascist-in-Chief Obama stabs Marco Rubio in the back and kills an effort to help Hispanic kids in order to politically benefit in the short-term even though it is going to cost Hispanics in the longer term.  Nothing is going to happen now, thanks to Obama.

And just in case you don’t yet understand what a stinking pile of quivering slime Obama truly is, let’s go back to the way Obama just abandoned the entire state of Arizona and made sure that their illegal immigration crisis would fester and rot.  Arizona Senator John McCain, who at least has the virtue of being a grown-up, notes that Obama’s response is nothing short of the action of a spoiled child.  This is the condition Arizona is now in thanks to Obama: their own state is no longer theirs because now it belongs to Mexican drug cartel killers:

In Obama’s God Damn America, Armed Illegals Stalk U.S. Border Patrol – With Weapons Supplied By The Obama Administration.

If that isn’t enough, this state that is so overwhelmed by illegal immigration BY MURDERING DRUG GANGS that the federal government is literally posting sings that say, “This part of the state is simply off limits to American citiziens because Barack Obama benefits politically from refusing to enforce the law,” there’s an additional level of chutzpah.  The same day that the Supreme Court ruled in a way Obama didn’t like that gave Arizona the right to pursue illegal immigrants as they enter the Arizona police system, the same day Obama refused to allow Arizona to receive to have any information by ICE or Homeland Security to check the status of illegal immigrants, Obama essentially put a warrant out on any police officer in Arizona who in any way, shape or form tried to enforce the law that the Supreme Court just found constitutional.  Obama yesterday implemented a hotline for any illegal immigrant to complain about the way a police officer dared to question him/her.

Even Obama’s own city of Chicago is suffering terribly due to Obama’s policies.  Not that he gives a damn: he knows that liberals will continue to vote for him no matter what.

It is also now known to be a fact that inventive security experts have come up with an inexpensive way to guarantee border security – but Obama doesn’t WANT border security.  Obama literally WANTS more illegal immigration.

Obama will sell this nation out if it will help him get the Hispanic vote and get re-elected.

It is beyond amazing how genuinely evil this turd Obama truly is.

Barack Obama has this in common with Hitler: he has absolutely no decency whatsoever and ultimately every single group who keeps fighting for him is going to ultimately be betrayed.

Napalitano Travels To Afghanistan To Make Its Border As Secure As America’s

January 3, 2011

Afghanistan is in trouble.  Fools are descending upon their country to give them advice.

Asking Janet Napolitano – or ANYBODY from the Obama administration – for advice on securing a border is rather like asking Tiger Woods for marital advice.

Napolitano Visit Aimed at Beefing Up Afghan Border Security, Customs

By Mike Levine
Published December 31, 2010
| FoxNews.com

KABUL, Afghanistan — During an unannounced New Year’s Eve visit to Afghanistan, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano traveled to the country’s mountainous border region near Pakistan to see first-hand her department’s efforts in the war effort there.

“Seeing is worth a thousand words,” Napolitano said after the tour, to which Fox News was granted exclusive access. “This all involves safety and security in this part of the world. And that is something that has direct connection as well to the United States.”

She described her department’s role in war-torn Afghanistan as a “complement” to the military operations there.

Her agency has about two dozen officials in Afghanistan, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, Customs and Border Protection officers, and Border Patrol agents. Many are training Afghan security forces to manage their country’s borders.

Poor Afghanistan.  They really don’t have any chance at all, do they?

The only thing worse than the blind leading the blind are the fools leading the fools.

The Obama administration’s approach to securing a border entails, first of all, doing nothing whatsoever to actually secure the border at all.  Because, obviously, doing something like securing a border is racist.  The second step in Obama border non-security involves carefully placing signs in border states announcing the surrender of national sovereignty, and advising citizens to keep out so the illegal immigrants can conduct their business without being disturbed by gringos who stupidly care about enforcing their country’s laws:

The third step involves vigorously attacking Arizona or any other state that actually wants to have any kind of meaningful security from the illegal immigrant invasion.  And, oh, you can add additional steps, such as bogus eggheaded liberal pseudo-scientific studies to show that the invasion across America’s border is actually a good thing for the United States.

You know, apart from the fact that the above ridiculous idea is complete and unadulterated bullcrap when you consider even MEXICO acknowledges that the very same immigrants are a burden when they return to their own country.

Oh, it also wouldn’t be hard to simply change “illegal immigrant” to “terrorist.”  Or, as Janet Napolitano and her boss Barry Hussein prefer to call them, “advocates of man-caused disaster.”

And, of course, the final step of the Obama administration’s border non-security is to demonize anyone and everything that in any way seeks to actually make the border more secure.

If you want to see the “theories” of border security that Janet Napolitano will be bringing from the Obama administration, see here, or here.

It’s like a sick joke that just keeps getter sicker and sicker.

Like I said, poor Afghanistan.

NBC Discovers That Illegal Immigrants Are Leaving Arizona. And That’s Supposed To Be A BAD Thing

July 13, 2010

NBC pulled out every single propaganda bomb in its massive propaganda arsenal to depict this as a tragic story of unparalleled human suffering in the face of an immoral state government enacting an immoral law.

The problem was, I kept reading the transcript and thinking, “My goodness, the illegals are actually leaving on their own!  How wonderful!  What a fantastic law!”

The other thing I thought was, “Finally.  A sanctuary state!”  By which I mean, a state finally taking the measures to free itself from the oppression and burden of illegal immigration.

NBC Reporter Discovers New Immigration Law Causing Illegals to Leave Arizona
By Geoffrey Dickens
Fri, 07/09/2010

NBC’s Lee Cowan, on Thursday’s NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, discovered a stunning result of Arizona’s new immigration policies – illegal immigrants are now leaving the state. Cowan opened his piece noting a long line now “stretches around the Mexican Consulate in Phoenix every day” but noticed a twist, as the line was full of “immigrants trying to figure out not how to stay in Arizona, but how to flee it.” Cowan peppered his story with anecdotes of local businesses losing customers “A look around this once-bustling barrio is telling. The local hair salon has more empty chairs now than customers” and schools losing students as he claimed “School numbers are dwindling, too. This one is 75 percent Hispanic. Since the immigration law passed, they’ve lost more than 100 students.” Cowan even punctuated this factoid with the sob story of a boy being taken out of school by his father to go back to Mexico:

LEE COWAN: For the Bolanos family, they stayed as long as they could.

MARCIAL BOLANOS, ARIZONA RESIDENT: Arizona is a good state, but no more now.

COWAN: He took his 15-year-old son out of school and is headed back to Mexico, which brings Hugo to tears. But you’re really going to miss your friends?

HUGO BOLANOS: Yeah.

While Cowan did air a soundbite of a Republican state senator who pointed out that it was “kind of a novel idea” that people were “actually worried they may be arrested for breaking the law” he concluded his piece by emphasizing the economic cost of Arizona’s new immigration policy: “It may be months before anyone knows for sure just how many illegal immigrants and their business the law has scared away. Supporters say good riddance, but critics fear the damage has already started.”

The following is a transcript of the Cowan segment as it was aired on the July 8 edition of NBC’s Nightly News with Brian Williams:

BRIAN WILLIAMS: Now we turn to Arizona, where the federal government is challenging the state’s tough new immigration law. Arizona’s governor set up a fund to defend the law. As of today, 9,000 people, mostly from out of state, have contributed a half a million dollars to the effort. Some of those targeted by the new law are not waiting for it to take effect later this summer. They’re leaving the state now. NBC’s Lee Cowan has our report.

LEE COWAN: One way to measure the effect of Arizona’s pending immigration law is the length of this line. It stretches around the Mexican Consulate in Phoenix every day, immigrants trying to figure out not how to stay in Arizona, but how to flee it.

LUIS BALENCEA, ARIZONA RESIDENT: There’s a lot of people already leaving for New Mexico, leaving something else, you know.

COWAN: Anywhere but here.

BALENCEA: Anywhere, yeah. Nobody want to stay here.

COWAN: A look around this once-bustling barrio is telling. The local hair salon has more empty chairs now than customers. The owner is even losing two employees.

ROSANA QUINTERO, SALON OWNER: People look very sad. And we feel sad, too.

COWAN: The café next door is even emptier.

MARIA SIERRA, BUSINESS OWNER: I ask the people, and they say they afraid to come out.

COWAN: School numbers are dwindling, too. This one is 75 percent Hispanic. Since the immigration law passed, they’ve lost more than 100 students.

JEFF SMITH, BALSZ SCHOOL DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENT: This is sort of the tip of the iceberg. More are waiting until the law goes into effect, and then we’ll see more people leaving during the summer.

COWAN: To the authors of Arizona’s tough new immigration stance, if there is a mass exodus of illegal immigrants, so be it.

REPUBLICAN STATE SENATOR RUSSELL PEARCE: Kind of a novel idea, you know, people actually worried they may be arrested for breaking the law.

COWAN: The problem is there really are no hard numbers on the issue. So the question critics are asking: Is this exodus a myth or a fact?

BILL HART, ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY: We think it’s fact. We don’t exactly know what’s happening, but we know something’s happening on a large scale.

COWAN: For the Bolanos family, they stayed as long as they could.

MARCIAL BOLANOS, ARIZONA RESIDENT: Arizona is a good state, but no more now.

COWAN: He took his 15-year-old son out of school and is headed back to Mexico, which brings Hugo to tears. But you’re really going to miss your friends?

HUGO BOLANOS: Yeah.

COWAN: And your school?

(Hugo nods head)

COWAN: It may be months before anyone knows for sure just how many illegal immigrants and their business the law has scared away. Supporters say good riddance, but critics fear the damage has already started. Lee Cowan, NBC News, Phoenix.

I mean, we’ve continually been told, “You can’t arrest and deport 12-20 million people!”  We’ve been told that we used to be able to put a man on the moon, but now we can’t put a wall on the border.  What this shows is that we don’t have to arrest and deport 12-20 million people.  We can simply start actually enforcing our laws, and watch illegal immigrants deport themselves.

And you know what would be an even BETTER deterrent?  We could adopt Mexico’s immigration laws.

It’s funny how Mexicans and Hispanics call the Arizona law “racist,” when it doesn’t even begin to be as strict as the Mexican immigration law – which is clearly intended to keep Central American Hispanics out of Mexico.

Which is another way of pointing out that the actual racists are the ones who are attacking Arizona.

The people who are opposing the Arizona law – which is nothing more than Arizona making what is already a federal crime a state crime – do not want ANY enforcement of our borders whatsoever.  They want America to be a borderless socialist utopia.  As in “Communists of the world, unite!”

As one example, read the transcript or watch the debate between Bill O’Reilly and Jorge Ramos.  Ramos simply refused to produce any answer whatsoever about what to do with even violent illegal immigrants.  At one point, O’Reilly pointed out, “You’re just dodging the question entirely!”  And later said, “It’s like I’m not even here.”

And it’s the same on the left from the Marxist-in-Chief on down: nobody is saying, “We’re going to secure our borders.”  Rather, at best, we see Obama demagoguing the issue and holding border security – his sworn duty to uphold as president – hostage to his leftists political agenda.

While his Secretary of Labor, Hilda Solis, does infomercials vowing to protect illegal immigrants in every way she can.

That the Obama administration is doing everything it can to prevent our federal laws on illegal immigration from being enforced, consider that Obama has shut down workplace enforcement to an astonishing degree.

I would love to see someone start offering free travel to sanctuary city San Fransisco, under the theory that if the city of San Fransisco really wants illegal immigrants, let it have them.  But if someone were to offer free transportation for illegal immigrants to San Fransisco, NBC and the rest of the mainstream media would depict it as analogous to the freight cars that hauled the Jews to their deaths in Nazi Germany.  Even though San Fransisco is supposed to be a socialist Utopian paradise, rather than a death camp, and even though the illegal immigrants would be traveling voluntarily.  Because propaganda is what they do.

And, even funnier yet, the driver of the van heading for San Fransisco would be arrested – on the demand of the left – for transporting illegal immigrants.  The illegal immigrants would be set free; the driver would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the laws of California.  While the media covered every sordid detail to cut and edit into their slanted narrative, of course.

On any issue you want to name, the mainstream media will select the leftist side of a story, and only show the “facts” that support that side.  That’s just who they are.

For instance, the story talks about the hit that some small businesses may take due to illegal immigrants leaving.  But they entirely  omit the huge sums of money that will be saved by the overwhelmed health care system, by the overburdened public school system, and the like.  They also fail to mention that many jobs abandoned by illegals will be taken by people LEGALLY in the country.  Just for a couple quick examples.

The funniest thing of all is that these people – whom NBC depicts as such oppressed victims – are themselves ultimately victims of the media.  It’s not a bad law that’s making them leave; it’s a bad media that is falsely and demagogically depicting the Arizona law as something it isn’t in order to stir up still more fearmongering.

Peggy West: Democrats Continue Psychologically Unhinged And Brain-Dead Stupid Denunciations Of Arizona Law

July 1, 2010

Peggy West is your typical Democrat.  That is to say, she is at once incredibly ignorant and incredibly demagogic.

She doesn’t have to have a valid reason to oppose the Arizona law.  After all, she is a liberal: what part does she possibly have with “reason”?

Here’s the story via NBC affiliate TMJ4 in Milwaukee:

MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee County Board spent part of the day debating a measure that would call for the county to boycott doing business with companies in Arizona.

Communities around the nation have passed similar measures in response to a law in Arizona that makes it a state crime to be in the country illegally.

There was an odd moment during the debate when Supervisor Peggy West stood up and seemed to be confused about her geography.  “If this was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this saying that they had a major issue with undocumented people flooding their borders, I would have to look twice at this.  But this is a state that is a ways removed from the border,” West said during debate.

And here’s the video:

Make no mistake: this is no dumber than any other reason liberals have given to attack the Arizona law.  The only difference is that this particular reason can be refuted with a globe or a map that would likely be found in any kindergarten classroom, whereas many of the other stupid reasons require the ability to read adult-level materials, such as the Arizona law itself.

Reading the ten page law was too much intellectual effort for Obama Attorney General Eric Holder.  So he just demonized the law from a brain-dead ignorant dumbass level.

Frankly, I have more intellectual respect for Peggy West.  I mean, maybe she’s smart enough to realize that she’s too stupid to be the president or the attorney general, unlike Barack Obama and Eric Holder.  And that would make her smarter than both of them.

I recently posted the following under a different title.  But it seems like a good thing to post again, just so we can see Democrats at work:

Watch the video of a pro-illegal immigration proponent literally threatening a racist murder spree against white people:

It doesn’t matter if virtually all the actual violent acts and threats of violent acts are coming from the left.  It’s all the tea party’s fault.

It also doesn’t matter that Article. IV., Section. 4 of the Constitution states, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union, a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion.”

It doesn’t matter that the Demagogue-in-Chief has cynically refused to do his constitutionally-mandated duty protecting Arizona in favor of holding border security hostage to his Marxist political agenda.

It doesn’t matter that Phoenix, Arizona is the world’s second worst cities for kidnappings in the entire world behind only Mexico City.

It doesn’t matter that Mexican drug gangs have literally taken over Arizona hilltops, where they are maintaining continuous observation posts that a helpless Arizona police force can’t do anything about:

Mexican Gangs Maintain Permanent Lookout Bases in Hills of Arizona
By Adam Housley
Published June 22, 2010

Mexican drug cartels have set up shop on American soil, maintaining lookout bases in strategic locations in the hills of southern Arizona from which their scouts can monitor every move made by law enforcement officials, federal agents tell Fox News.

The scouts are supplied by drivers who bring them food, water, batteries for radios — all the items they need to stay in the wilderness for a long time.

Click here for more on this story from Adam Housley.

“To say that this area is out of control is an understatement,” said an agent who patrols the area and asked not to be named. “We (federal border agents), as well as the Pima County Sheriff Office and the Bureau of Land Management, can attest to that.”

It doesn’t matter that even the federal government is warning that large swaths of Arizona are now off-limits because Mexican drug gangs have overrun it.

It doesn’t matter that Arizona is so overrun with criminal illegals that the federal government is putting up more and more warning signs telling American citizens that they are not safe to enter their own country.

From Great Satan, Inc.:

It doesn’t matter that criminal Mexican gangs are literally threatening Arizona police officers with assassination:

Arizona Cops Threatened by Mexican Drug Cartel
Ominous Threat From Mexican Dealers Is the First Directed at U.S. Law Enforcement

By RAY SANCHEZ
June 24, 2010

A Mexican drug cartel has threatened police officers in Arizona who confiscated a marijuana shipment, prompting the small town department to warn its officers to remain armed and have radios with them at all times, and keep their body armor handy.

Police and experts believe the warning against the Nogales, Ariz., cops marks the first time that powerful Mexican drug cartels, used to bribing and bullying police south of the border, have targeted U.S. officers.

It doesn’t matter if Arizona police officers are already being gunned down by AK-47-wielding drug gangs.

It doesn’t matter that an outgunned Arizona police force are literally begging for help.

It doesn’t matter that out-of-control mobs of illegal immigrants and Hispanic supporters of illegal immigration have even attacked the police.

It doesn’t matter that the Arizona law is completely constitutional, or that the Arizona law actually merely gives the state the power to enforce existing federal law, or that Arizona actually watered the law down to deal with the avalanche of lies being told by the left:

The simple fact of the matter is that the federal law is FAR “harsher” or “more racist” than the Arizona law (see also here for a more detailed analysis).  The Supreme Court has ruled unanimously (that means even Ruth Bader Ginsburg voted for it!) in the 2005 Mueller v. Mena case that the federal authorities have the right to demand citizenship status at any time for any reason without the need to demonstrate reasonable suspicion [Muehler v. Mena, 544 U.S. 93 (2005) (“the officers did not need reasonable suspicion to ask Mena for her . . . immigration status.”)].  The Arizona law is actually FAR more restrictive than the current federal law that the Obama White House WILL NOT ENFORCE.  And the Arizona law is completely constitutional for that reason.  The left has demonized, demagogued, and most certainly flat-out lied about the Arizona law.

[See here for more].

It doesn’t matter that the leftist whackjobs – including the leftist whackjobs in the Obama administration who are going to attack Arizona – have not even bothered to read the law that they’re demonizing.  Obama is suing Arizona for a law that is no different from the federal law, while ignoring all the “sanctuary cities” that have been in total violation of the federal law.

It doesn’t matter that illegal immigration is costing the American taxpayers billions of dollars every single year that are overwhelming our economy:

“Costs on average for every illegal alien headed household about $19,600 more if they consume the city services than they pay in taxes, so the rest of the taxpayers have to part costs. Schools become overcrowded, English as second language programs push out other programs.”

It doesn’t matter that the same illegal immigrants who are a burden to our country are in fact a burden to their own damn country.  And that if they’re a burden to their own country, how in the hell are they not a burden to ours?

It doesn’t matter that the very Mexicans who are demonizing our tolerant immigration laws don’t seem to care about how harsh the Mexican government is about dealing with THEIR illegal immigrants.

It doesn’t matter that the violence in Mexico that is clearly coming here is so out-of-control in Mexico itself that the man expected to win election as the next governor in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas was just gunned down and murdered.

None of that matters to the despicable left.

The Democrat Party demands that nothing be done at all to stop illegal immigration because they believe they can use the issue to demagogue their way to winning the Hispanic vote.  The Democrat Party demands that Arizona not be allowed to do anything whatsoever to protect themselves.

It doesn’t matter that the Democrat Party and the mainstream media that writes their propaganda are officially hypocritical, demagogic, and yes, frankly both evil and treasonous as well.

We are becoming an out-of-control society on the verge of collapse, and we need to purge ourselves of Democrats as much as we need to purge illegal immigrants.

Pro-Illegal Immigrant Supporter Threatens Murder Of Americans With Axes And Shovels

June 28, 2010

This goes hand in hand with other very recent news that the judge who overturned Obama’s oil-drilling ban has received death threats from the left:

U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman, who overturned the Obama moratorium on drilling in over 500 feet of water in the Gulf, now has to have federal marshalls protect him because of death threats against him.

Watch the video of a pro-illegal immigration proponent literally threatening a racist murder spree against white people.

It doesn’t matter if virtually all the actual violent acts and threats of violent acts are coming from the left.  It’s all the tea party’s fault.

It also doesn’t matter that Article. IV., Section. 4 of the Constitution states, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union, a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion.”

It doesn’t matter that the Demagogue-in-Chief has cynically refused to do his constitutionally-mandated duty protecting Arizona in favor of holding border security hostage to his Marxist political agenda.

It doesn’t matter that Phoenix, Arizona is the world’s second worst cities for kidnappings in the entire world behind only Mexico City.

It doesn’t matter that Mexican drug gangs have literally taken over Arizona hilltops, where they are maintaining continuous observation posts that a helpless Arizona police force can’t do anything about:

Mexican Gangs Maintain Permanent Lookout Bases in Hills of Arizona
By Adam Housley
Published June 22, 2010

Mexican drug cartels have set up shop on American soil, maintaining lookout bases in strategic locations in the hills of southern Arizona from which their scouts can monitor every move made by law enforcement officials, federal agents tell Fox News.

The scouts are supplied by drivers who bring them food, water, batteries for radios — all the items they need to stay in the wilderness for a long time.

Click here for more on this story from Adam Housley.

“To say that this area is out of control is an understatement,” said an agent who patrols the area and asked not to be named. “We (federal border agents), as well as the Pima County Sheriff Office and the Bureau of Land Management, can attest to that.”

It doesn’t matter that even the federal government is warning that large swaths of Arizona are now off-limits because Mexican drug gangs have overrun it.

It doesn’t matter that Arizona is so overrun with criminal illegals that the federal government is putting up more and more warning signs telling American citizens that they are not safe to enter their own country.

It doesn’t matter that criminal Mexican gangs are literally threatening Arizona police officers with assassination:

Arizona Cops Threatened by Mexican Drug Cartel
Ominous Threat From Mexican Dealers Is the First Directed at U.S. Law Enforcement

By RAY SANCHEZ
June 24, 2010

A Mexican drug cartel has threatened police officers in Arizona who confiscated a marijuana shipment, prompting the small town department to warn its officers to remain armed and have radios with them at all times, and keep their body armor handy.

Police and experts believe the warning against the Nogales, Ariz., cops marks the first time that powerful Mexican drug cartels, used to bribing and bullying police south of the border, have targeted U.S. officers.

It doesn’t matter if Arizona police officers are already being gunned down by AK-47-wielding drug gangs.

It doesn’t matter that an outgunned Arizona police force are literally begging for help.

It doesn’t matter that out-of-control mobs of illegal immigrants and Hispanic supporters of illegal immigration have even attacked the police.

Cynical Demagogue Obama Holding Border Security Hostage To Leftwing Agenda

June 21, 2010

Obama says the following isn’t true, and Jon Kyle is lying.  Personally, I say the Liar-in-Chief is lying.  But if Obama ISN’T lying, all he has to do is demonstrate that he in fact has been actively working to bolster border security.  All he has to do is show us what he’s done.

Oh, wait.  He hasn’t done crap.  Not a damn thing.  The only thing he HAS done is sent in a battalion of lawyers to sue Arizona for actually DOING SOMETHING TO SLOW DOWN OUT-OF-CONTROL ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

The Obama administration doesn’t have to actually bother to read the Arizona law to know they don’t like it.  Because they don’t like ANYTHING that does ANYTHING to slow down illegal immigration.

He mentioned that he was going to send 1200 National Guardsmen a few weeks back – quickly adding that they would only be used for “desk security” rather than any kind of actual border security.  In the Army we had a term for useless desk jockies who did nothing but make the lives of the actual grunts shorter, nastier, and more brutish: “Chairborne Rangers.”  But even given that the desk security personnel are going to be utterly useless, just where exactly the hell are they?  Governer Brewer says they sure haven’t appeared in her state.

Obama thinks that saying he’s going to do something is just as good as actually doing it.  So he doesn’t need to do anything now that he said he would do something.

Kind of like Gitmo.  Only this time he actually promised to do something that would at least be a tiny step in the right direction, rather than a massive step in the wrong one.

VIDEO – Sen. Kyl: ‘Obama Says No Border Security without Amnesty’
by  Connie Hair
06/20/2010

In a stunning revelation at an Arizona town hall meeting this past Friday, Republican Senator Jon Kyl told his constituents that President Obama privately insisted that he will not secure the border until amnesty for illegal aliens passes first. According to Kyl, Obama argued that Democrats would lose their bargaining chips for any type of amnesty if the government beefs up its presence on the chaotic border. “The problem is,” Obama allegedly told Kyl, “If we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform.”

Transcript (at 3:21):

SEN. JON KYL:  I met with the president in the Oval Office, just the two of us… Here’s what the president said.  “The problem is,” he said, “If we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform.”

[gasps from the audience]

KYL:  In other words they’re holding it hostage.  They don’t want to secure the border unless and until it is combined with comprehensive immigration reform.  I explained, “You and I have an obligation to secure the border.  That’s an obligation.  It also has some potentially positive benefits.  You don’t have to have comprehensive immigration to secure the border, but you have to have a secure border to get comprehensive immigration reform.  You may be surprised, maybe you don’t think that there’d be any more incentive, but I’m not so sure that that’s true.  In any event, it doesn’t matter we’re supposed to secure the border.”

That’s why this is being done.  They want to get something in return for doing their duty.  And that’s—

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Chicago politics.

KYL: Yeah.

H/T: Scott McKay, The Hayride

The fact that Obama is denying this demonstrates how utterly despicable even he knows it is.

And, yet, just how is it in any way not in complete character with the Obama we’ve come to know and actively despise???

This is the Obama who made every sort of promise about his ObamaCare, and then systematically broke virtually all of them.  This is the Obama who has demagogued the Gulf disaster to try to gin up support for his godawful cap-and-trade boondoggle.  This is the Obama who made BP an “offer it couldn’t refuse” by threatening to criminally prosecute them even though there is no evidence yet of anything criminal, while Obama declared open war on BP’s stock price to force it to do what he wanted.

Obama hasn’t done anything about border security.  And he won’t, because Jon Kyle is telling the truth, and Barry Hussein is a lying demagogue.
