This is not just a Texas/Arizona problem – our national security is at risk. This is a carefully engineered crisis, orchestrated by the rogue Obama administration. The images of the children and oh the suffering, “woe unto us if we do nothing.” So we herd them into centers, hire more government workers to provide shelter, food, interpreters, social workers, teachers, and all for the express purpose of swelling the ranks of the proletariat, a larger dependent underclass that will raise the number of loyal Democrat voters over the magic 50%, ensuring a Democrat dynasty with an eternal, enlightened, uber-rich ruling class of Obotoids the likes of Warren Buffett, Jeff Immelt, all of Hollywood, Mark Zuckerman, Bill Gates, the entire propagandist alphabet-soup media and sports celebrities, with a miserable, shrinking middle class of proletariat drones keeping the country “running.” You follow? Never let a good crisis go to waste. Liberal-progressive Alinskyite-Democrat-Marxism right out of Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” and Dr. Cleon Skousen’s “45 Communist Goals to the Takeover of America.”
Consider this – the Obot rogue president not taking a position on the border crisis, means he needn’t defend his position; if he’s not there, he hasn’t seen it, and his “advisors” are forced to shoulder the blame for whatever does/doesn’t happen. The Obot rogue, even without a position on what to do/not do about it, nevertheless is responsible for his oath of office, which includes the declaration “he will faithfully enforce the laws” of what Congress passes through legislation. He could say it is up to Congress and the people’s representatives to decide; but of course, he won’t state that because he doesn’t intend to enforce what Congress passes. Congress will not pass legislation knowing that what they pass will likely not be enforced by the Obot rogue (considering also, that “Dingie ‘Arry” has his filthy hands all over it as well) so the circus (minus these days “Barney-Carney-Circus-Clown”) continues unabated to delirious boredom. This is not just a Texas/Arizona problem.
Therefore, We The People are left with the Obot rogue doing absolutely nothing about the crisis on the border. Sad that the leader of the free world is comfortable in doing nothing. We The People don’t need this kind of change where an Obot rogue “president” does nothing about a crisis other than having his filthy hands out for more billions of dollars that we don’t have, to solve a problem of his own making, to ensure his voting base remains corruptively Democrat for his own self-aggrandizement. That, to me, is the definition of “TYRANT” – PERIOD.
Now to the visit to the border with Sean Hannity accompanying Texas Governor Rick Perry …
Sean Hannity traveled to the Texas border for an exclusive tour Thursday with Governor Rick Perry. Before the two joined authorities for a look at the Rio Grande, Texas Department of Public Safety director Steve McCraw provided them a briefing. “You’re going to have to pinch yourself a couple of times to come back to the fact that you’re in America, because a lot of the stuff you’re going to be seeing … is almost like dealing with Middle East conflicts,” he said.
At the briefing, Hannity was also stunned when he was told that more than 600,000 crimes have been committed by undocumented immigrants in the past six years. “I’m learning things here today that I never knew of,” Hannity told Perry.
The duo then viewed the Rio Grande from a chopper, later stopping for Perry to show Hannity Texas’s new weapon in securing the border. “First of all, these boats fly — what have you got?” Hannity asked. “We’ve got triple 300,” the captain said. “Triple 300s?” Hannity asked. “Yeah we’ve got 900 horse power,” Perry chimed in. “The jack plate will come up, it will operate in 12 inches of water and that’s why this becomes a very, very usable type of vessel. So, almost anywhere in the Rio Grande now, we can operate. We realized that we were not going to get the support of the Federal Government, so we had to do something.”
During the segment, Perry also mentioned that he and Obama “philosophically agreed” on how to secure the border. “I hope his actions will follow up with that and prove that he does care about the security of this country and about dealing with this border,” he said. This is definitely not just a Texas/Arizona problem.
On the same topic, Peggy Noonan on the Opinion piece in the WSJ opines: “America is the house that is both falling apart and under new stress. Those living within it, those most upset by what they’re seeing, know America has big problems—unemployment, low workforce participation, a rickety physical infrastructure, an unsound culture, poor public education. And of course discord of all sorts—a lot of mad squirrels running around the attic. They know America can’t pay its bills. They fear we’re living on the fumes of greatness. They want us to be strong again. Watching our border collapse doesn’t look like a harbinger of progress.”
What is happening at the southern border is a true and actual crisis. News accounts justly use words like chaos, collapse and breakdown. They feature images of children—toddlers, 4- and 5-year-olds—being shuffled to warehouse holding centers, sleeping crowded at night on what look like pallets, covered only in Mylar blankets. “I never thought we’d have refugee camps in America,” said Texas Sen. John Cornyn, “but that’s what it’s appearing.”
All this gives normal people a feeling of besiegement and foreboding. Is a nation without borders a nation? Washington’s leaders seem to recognize what’s happening as a political problem, not a real problem. That is, they betray no honest alarm. They just sort of stand in clusters and say things.
There seem only two groups that view the situation with appropriate alarm.
One is the children themselves, dragged through deserts to be deposited here. To them, everything is a swirl of lights, color and clamor, and shouting and clanking. A reporter touring a detainment center in Texas noted a blank, lost look among some of the younger children. Every mother knows what that suggests. Children who cry and wail anticipate comfort: That’s why they’re crying, to alert those who care for them that something is wrong. But little children who are blank, withdrawn, who don’t show or at some point know what they’re feeling—those children are in trouble.
The other group feeling a proper alarm is normal Americans, who are seeing all this on TV and who judge they are witnessing a level of lawlessness that has terrible implications for the country.
