Imbued with a growing sense of entitlement to amnesty, illegal aliens and their supporters have become increasingly aggressive in pressing their demands. Among their new tactics is outright intimidation of public officials.
So as we continue to listen to politicians, especially our POTUS, espousing how important it is for these individuals learn to live outside of the shadows and become known our question remains – how long is this ridiculous posturing going to continue. Are they really that dumb, that is, the politicians.
Earlier this year, a group of illegal aliens turned up at the home of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, sending a not-so-subtle message, “We know where you and your kids live.” On Wednesday evening it was House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s turn. Some 60 illegal aliens and their supporters forced their way into the lobby of Cantor’s suburban D.C. condo to hold a loud protest clearly aimed at intimidating him.
Not being one to constantly be barking “what about the rule of law” it seems to me that the statement “We know where you and your kids live” could be construed as a threat. The following video shows just how bat sh*t some people can become.

The Credibility Gap: Another Reason…
The erudite and ever-quotable late Senator from New York, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, famously said, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.”
Apparently, Sen. Moynihan was wrong. According to media reports, employees at the U.S. Census Bureau fabricated employment data to make it appear that unemployment was declining dramatically on the eve of the 2012 presidential election. The New York Post names a specific Census Bureau employee, Julius Buckmon, who cooked the books, adding, “a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee.”
The official monthly unemployment numbers are determined by Census Bureau interviews with some 60,000 U.S. households. Allegedly, Buckmon, who worked for the Bureau’s Philadelphia office, created people out of thin air and reported them as being employed. In compiling the monthly employment reports, Buckmon “interviewed” three times as many households as his peers.
Buckmon’s credibility is obviously in doubt, but he claims that he was told to fabricate data by his superiors. Whether the falsification was carried out to improve President Obama’s chances for reelection, or they were carried out because the Philadelphia office was having trouble meeting the requirement that they reach 90 percent of the households on their call list, is not clear.
What is clear is that the American public must be very skeptical about government data. This is an especially sobering thought as discussion of a mass amnesty remains before Congress. The bill passed by the Senate, in theory, relies on a government agency – the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) – certifying that border and other immigration enforcement triggers be met before amnestied aliens can receive green cards.
House Speaker John A. Boehner says his party is hopeful that progress can be made on immigration reform, but believes that implementing change should be addressed “one step at a time.”
“I’m hopeful we can make progress on this very important issue,” he added, according to The Washington Post.
“The only way to make sure immigration reform works this time is to address these complicated issues one step at a time. I think doing so will give the American people confidence that we’re dealing with these issues in a thoughtful way and a deliberative way,” said Boehner.
Boehner said he was encouraged by the President, that he was open to reform changes being implemented in a gradual fashion. While he wouldn’t put a timeline on these changes, he insisted that immigration reform is still alive.
“Is immigration reform dead? Absolutely not,” he said, according to the LA Times.
The main bone of contention is the provision in the Senate-approved bill to allow illegal immigrants follow a path to U.S. citizenship, something the GOP-controlled House is against.
Leadership – interesting word and throughout the history of humankind – leadership has been the undoing of anything and everything conceivable to human minds. Good or bad, excellent and worthy of praise wherever there is one or more people going about living and working socially together there will always be that one or more people who want to take the lead.
Far be it from me but in the absence of any real leadership and by that I definitely mean the ability to guide, direct, or influence people properly without the “leaders’” wanton lust getting directly involved. Furthermore when addressing leadership I believe we can also include guidance and direction set by the examples that this nation’s leadership is theoretically one that looks to control other people regardless of the truth, justice, or American way.
Therefore we have no difficulty with naming names, events, or otherwise that has occurred on whoever’s watch. How members of the Democratic Party could be doing almost everything recklessly and without remorse in order to get Hillary Rodham Clinton elected as the next president for us is just unconscionable. This person is so far into the bowels or entrails of the worst things that could ever happen to the U.S.A. are wrong.
Anyway just a thought before diving in toward our planned last installment(s) of just how our elected officials are stealing from us on an hourly basis. Simply calling in the markers that the IRS has “I did not do it…” mismanagement of taxpayer funds alone we have addressed nearly $200 -$300 billion.
And I intentionally left the schemes of “clean energy” out of the mix for a couple of reasons. One, we believe that internal combustion engines and the use of fossil fuels are extremely limited at this time. Two, we believe in the concept of clean energy; albeit, not some product that one very limited individual is going – very unprepared – and then squander an additional one half billion dollars.
On the heels of “Tax Day,” 24 Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employees have been charged with stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars in government benefits, including food stamps, welfare and housing vouchers.
The story comes out of Tennessee, where federal prosecutors announced this month that the scheme fleeced U.S. taxpayers out of at least a quarter of a million dollars in government benefits. The corrupt IRS employees did it by making false statements to fraudulently obtain the benefits, which also included unemployment insurance.
No! I know it is not me! What in the devil’s name are our “leadership” involved with knowing that billions of dollars in fraudulent kick backs for electric cars, fraudulent and unscrupulous housing schemes, with (criminal) inmates filing for income on what? Illegal aliens incarcerated and being paid top dollar for what – nothing!
Heck, why do not we all just move over there where the grass is greener and the money never stops flowing; but wait on a minute – how are we, the American public, supposed to say anything about these improprieties? That is of course if one is telling the truth, describing the perpetrator – get my drift here – if we are supposed to be this huge global conglomeration then all of the fictitious stereotypes can’t really exist in reality.
We did have some reflection time after our staff meeting today and we read Ann Coulter’s notion of: We’re in a fight to the death over the country! Are you people awake? Have you heard of this great new thing called Obamacare? We have to win elections! We can worry about “the soul of the party” when we have big, veto-proof majorities in the Senate and House.
Coulter directs her ire at Republicans who support amnesty, such as Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., John McCain, R-Ariz., Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Reps. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., Eric Cantor, R-Va., and Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.
It is a Matter of Common Sense NOT too…
Weeks after a government audit revealed that the Internal Revenue Service doled out $33 million in fraudulent electric-car tax credits, a separate probe says the agency paid out over half a billion dollars to “homebuyers” who did not qualify. When one examines data analysis, hard numbers, and the eyewitnesses at the banks and other institutions, is this type of leadership that caused the first federal stimulus?
It’s simply the latest of many blunders for the perpetually troubled government agency that’s awarded prison inmates tens of millions of dollars in bogus tax refunds in the past decade. Last year alone, more than a quarter of a million prisoners filed tax returns with the IRS and nearly 50,000 claimed more than $130 million in refunds without bothering to report wage information, according to the Treasury Inspector General.
Last month the Treasury IG, the IRS’s watchdog, found that the Obama Administration’s aggressive push to reward consumers who buy costly “advanced-technology” vehicles resulted in rampant corruption because claims were automatically granted without scrutiny. In many cases the lucrative tax credit—worth up to $7,500—was awarded to gas-guzzling sports utility vehicles and even a bicycle.
Some people got multiple tax cuts for the same vehicle and dozens of prisoners received nearly $50,000 in alternative vehicle credits even though they were behind bars. This month’s audit du jour says the IRS has dished out more than $513 million in credits to unscrupulous filers who claimed first-time homebuyer exemptions of up to $8,000 as part of Obama’s disastrous stimulus plan.
A chunk of the money—about $326 million—went to nearly 50,000 people who already owned a home, the Treasury IG found. Nearly $8 million in credits went to more than 1,000 prison inmates and about $98 million to 13,400 taxpayers who never even bought homes.
Even some IRS employees who did not qualify for the first-time homebuyer refund received it. In its report, the Treasury IG makes a rather simple suggestion that is perhaps too common sense for the IRS; require taxpayers to provide documentation to support eligibility for all refundable tax credits. Here’s another good recommendation from the agency’s watchdog; that the IRS deny refundable credits when supporting documentation is not provided.
“Believing that they won the recent shutdown fight, President Obama and the Democrats think they have momentum to browbeat the House into passing some version of the Schumer-Rubio amnesty that was approved by the Senate in June,” says Mark Krikorian in National Review.
“Representative Paul Ryan has been actively working to help the president achieve his chief goal for the second term. Many conservatives fear that Speaker Boehner and the rest of the House GOP leadership share Ryan’s desire to pass a bill that would legalize the present 11 million–plus illegal aliens and double future legal immigration.”
First of all that “option” is pathetic. That Trojan-horse legislation is H.R. 1417, the Border Security Results Act of 2013, authored by Representative Mike McCaul (R., Texas), chairman of the committee. But the first sign of trouble comes when you note one name on the list of the bill’s original co-sponsors: Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas), a vice chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.”
We are admittedly aware that Ms. Jackson Lee does not need an introduction to this writing. All one really needs to do is think of the 2001 World Conference on Racism in South Africa whereby the “Honorable Sheila Jackson Lee” a Democrat, created a substantial raucous near disaster in that nation. On April 28, 2006, Jackson Lee, along with four other members of Congress and six other activists, was arrested for disorderly conduct in front of Sudan’s embassy in Washington. They were protesting the role of Sudan’s government in ethnic cleansing in Darfur.
Well it has happened; the government has shut down. But seriously now, is anyone surprised? Nah…not those of us who work for The Contemplative Thinker where we have interns, volunteers, and some very nominally paid authors.
I have been wanting to say all day – that we admittedly did not want to start any kind of bad berries – through coverage of our disrespectful and reckless Congressional officials and of course, who could ever leave out President Barack Obama.
Compliments of CNN News: With a series of potential disasters hovering over the nation like a demon storm, the most prominent words of a Washington-based word cloud would be: government shutdown, continuing resolution, debt limit and Obamacare.
Although a potential shutdown and the need to raise the debt limit are different issues, they are interrelated and have one big thing in common: They are both products of a crisis manufactured by Washington. And both are being used for leverage in attempts to undermine Obamacare.
The federal government’s fiscal year starts next week — October 1. And Congress’ one key duty laid out in the Constitution is to pass spending bills that fund the government.
This time around, the House of Representatives, led by conservative Republicans, has linked this funding process — known as a continuing resolution — to defunding President Barack Obama’s signature health insurance law, the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. It passed its bill last Friday and sent it to the Senate.
What is important here is that if Congress does not pass the $986 billion continuing resolution, or CR, in the next week, the national parks could close, airport Transportation Security Agents might be furloughed, and agents might be unable to process Social Security checks.
Remember that time when you maxed out your credit card? That is what the debt limit is all about. The U.S. is on the verge of maxing out its $16.699 trillion credit card.
A maxed-out credit card does not mean you can stop spending. While you have to pay your credit card bill, you also have to continue to buy groceries and pay the electric bill, so you might have to open up a new credit card.
That is similar to what the U.S. government must do. The government cannot just stop paying on its previous debt or spending money, even though its credit limit is maxed out, because it has too many obligations to meet. It has to have access to money to pay for the interest on that debt, as well as pay soldiers’ paychecks, doctors’ Medicare reimbursements, expenses like bridge repairs, and so on. So the president must ask Congress to raise the limit of the country’s credit card, or debt limit.
But many think Republicans in Congress may also try to link raising the debt limit to defunding Obamacare. Sound familiar?
Sometime around the middle of October — unless Congress votes to raise the debt limit — the U.S. government will be out of options. This past spring it already implemented “extraordinary measures” where accounts were reshuffled to enable the U.S. to continue paying its bills.
At home, it would also be devastating. That 80-year-old woman who relies on her Social Security check to pay her rent might not be paid. That means her landlord will not be paid.
The doctor who sees Medicare patients will not be reimbursed, so he might not purchase that new flat-screen TV he was planning to buy next month. The government contractor who is owed for providing food at military bases will not be paid, and she will have to lay off line cooks.
So where does ObamaCare come in? While the health care law is not directly tied to funding the government – the CR – or paying bills already incurred – the debt ceiling – It is being used as a powerful bargaining chip.
A group of Republicans, led by freshman Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, despises the health care law so much that it is willing to risk government shutdown or default.
And we feel that with never-ending spending and government intrusion in part of our everyday lives it is time to step up and do what the American people have elected you to do.
The House, which is controlled by Republicans, voted on a measure that would fund the government until December 15 — but in exchange for keeping the government open, the health care law would be defunded. The offer and negotiating point is right there.
However, the Democratic controlled Senate vows that Obamacare defunding will have no part in efforts to keep the government running and is expected to strip that provision out of its version of the CR sometime this week.
The majority of American people do not want ObamaCare in the position that it is now. This is the bill you remember the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi stating loudly, “Well, as soon as we can write the bill, we will be able to tell everyone what is in it…”
This is one of those rare times where an uber-liberal, Catholic and Women of Religion, have met in Marin County just north of San Francisco, California and persuaded a gullible editor to display her Op-Ed in the county press. In black and white are her writings; I responded not nearly as sever as I should have but nonetheless allowed people to see my writing which is a different color.
“THE SENATE passed an important immigration reform bill in June; now we pray that members of the House, reconvened after a summer recess, will work together to pass potentially historic legislation, addressing an issue that touches us all.
The only issue that will make this legislation historic is simply the notion that the Senate did not consult the American people, yet rather left matters up to a “Gang of Eight” who obviously had a completely different agenda in mind.
One agenda that regardless of the will of the American people sought fit to include matters in this bill that have been defeated at least twenty times by different Congressional officials. Moreover, at different times during the last generation, or 30 years, our countrymen did not have a president who conspired with the Department of Homeland Security to make way for 14 million more illegal immigrants.
This month the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael joined a national movement launched by the Interfaith Immigration Coalition: Fast Action: 40 days of Prayer, Fasting and Advocacy for Immigration Reform. Now this I am truly sorry to hear; whereas most of the time we would hope any organization would do their due-diligence before making this monumental discrepancy.
However, being a servant I have always been taught that if there exists a difference of opinion in the ways of our Lord, we are to address those matters silently and speaking only for the need of the saints. In other words, the steadfastness of an office or rectory are two such places that come to mind.
As it is I remain closed to discussing “Interfaith Immigration Coalition: Fast Action: 40 days of Prayer, Fasting, and Advocacy for Immigration Reform.” It is time to stand up, hold steadfast to our faith, and not be shifted away by any words of doctrine that simply do not measure up.
If they were born here, their parents were immigrants. We are familiar with our own families’ stories of economic hardship, religious discrimination, or political repression that forced them to uproot themselves from all that was familiar to re-make their lives in a new country.
However this guarded and obscene description is about as true as Fool’s Gold, another item they must have information on. I hasten to remind The Right Honorable Sister Maureen McInerney that we are not dealing with your shortened and sweet version. We are talking about people who come knowing about the entitlements and other freebies to be awarded them.
As women religious we stand up for justice and compassion for all people.
In 1981, we sisters voted to take a stance to support political refugees from El Salvador and Guatemala by declaring our convent on Grand Avenue a public sanctuary in accord with the United Nations Convention and Protocol Relating to Refugees and as adopted by the United States Refugee Act of 1980.
A huge mistake insofar as many a majority of gangs are directly from Salvadorian gangs and other cartel nations such as Guatemala. And I say this…”What do you think gives you the right to declare any property with sanctuary status?”
In 2009, after much study, reflection, and conversation, we chose to take another stance, this one in favor of compassionate immigration reform. We take every opportunity to reach out to our immigrant brothers and sisters through our ministries in health care, education, local parishes and social services.
Good for you! It is not America’s fault that fathers and husbands, wives and mothers openly decided to ignore America’s rule of law, therefore abandoning other family members until they found a place better.
We have listened to heartbreaking stories about people terrorized in their home countries, and then being exploited by those who offer to lead them over the border to safety.
We know how every able-bodied member of the family works two or more jobs to be able to afford the fees for immigration attorneys and others to help them comply with a confusing mass of legal requirements in the quest for citizenship.
We invite everyone in Marin County to study the issue of immigration reform. Talk to people in the community who have suffered from our country’s lack of a just, compassionate approach to the realities in today’s world.
Join us in praying, fasting, and advocating for true reform that will honor the dignity of every person.
Please contact your representative in Congress and ask for justice for our neighbors. With unprecedented vigor I and we have done that particular order managing within the political process. But all too often we are just tired of being ignored. If any of us is lucky enough to receive any correspondence back regardless of national welfare, individual support, or let us just put it out there.
The total lack of respect that is shown to us by mental midgets like Representative Elijah Cummings who astoundingly showed his metal prowess by declaring in an Op-Ed piece in the Washington Post how the IRS investigations need to be more focused and less based on politics.
And only prior to that action, the ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee felt the need to publish Rep. Darryl Issa’s entire trip to Libya.
As far back as 1782, J. Hector de Crevecoeur, a French settler in New York, pictured this new country as two things. One was a land of opportunity. Another was a place where all these unique settlers from all different lands would melt into a new race. The term “melting pot” was used as a metaphor after that. In a real melting pot, metals are put together in a pot. Then the metals are melted at a high temperature. They come together as a new compound that is stronger than the original metals alone. The “melting pot” in American history was meant to show how people would fuse into a great blend in this powerful democracy. Thus, many different ethnic groups joined together thus to create a united country and have given up their ties to their individual ethnic groups.
This white paper tries to acknowledge the notion of the long usage of the terms, Melting Pot, ethnicity, cultures, as well as assimilation that we are sure is in the forefront of everyone’s minds.
The following are ways in which social scientists have attempted to define the word assimilation. One can easily see where some of the scientists have overlapped in their judgments of explanation. Finally we try to bring forth how the original metaphor of The Melting Pot came to define a lot of American theory.
It seems as though through the very definitions of words (keeping in mind of course, political correctness) that the word ethnic is supportive of sharing cultural characteristics; moreover, this notion is having the ability of sharing distinctive cultural traits as a group in a society (Best for defining ethnic minorities).
Another definition strongly linked to the original or aforementioned is that ability whereby one is from a different culture and has the ability of knowing when to share with the dominate cultures within a given society; or, relating to a group or groups in society with distinctive cultural traits (Best when used with the notion of one’s own ethnic origins).
Still another portion of our definition is relating to a person or to a large group of people who share a national, racial, linguistic, or religious heritage, whether or not they reside in their countries of origin (Best when discussing ethnic origins given their plights and examination of their suffrage).
Still further into the realm of cultural characteristics is contained within the definition of being culturally traditional which is belonging to or associated with the traditional culture of a social group (Ethnic clothing).
The melting pot is a metaphor for a heterogeneous society becoming more homogeneous, the different elements “melting together” into a harmonious whole with a common culture. It is particularly used to describe the assimilation of immigrants to the United States; the melting-together metaphor was in use by the 1780s.
After 1970 the desirability of assimilation and the melting pot model was challenged by proponents of multiculturalism, who assert that cultural differences within society are valuable and should be preserved, proposing the alternative metaphor of the mosaic, salad bowl, or “American Kaleidoscope”—different cultures mix, but remain distinct.
We feel that this particular attitude in post hippy dome USA, and very much to the disliking of liberals everywhere we believe that those things (luggage) one brings with them to this nation are not something that is bad or otherwise. Rather we choose the moniker of personal – that is what makes individuals unique – however, to take the culture’s from the people who immigrate to this country does inevitably cause damage or a feeling of unsteadiness insofar as within a nation’s boundaries order (hence power) for government affairs and the rule of law must exist.
And after President Barack Obama won Hispanic voters by a nearly 3-1 margin, a demographic drubbing that startled GOP tacticians everywhere, Bailey embarked on a public relations blitz that landed his message in national outlets like NPR, The Huffington Post, Politico, and RedState.com. Unfortunately for those…they were duped by this cunning lie, and once again their hopes and wishes were used for the ill-profit gain of the Presidency.
By the time the Senate took up the issue in the spring, comprehensive immigration reform finally seemed to have momentum. It is as if nothing is done unless Congress sanctifies the matter and then they go forth and put together the worst concoction in every sense of the matter.
As far as we are concerned this process is in and of itself ridiculous and certainly a case study in mismanagement. When matters such as the addition of realistically… 20 to 35 million more people added to the nation’s ranks, we feel that is when the greatest segue into American public policy and personal opinion come in and should be revered as the way it is.
Assimilated into American society
Therefore, Americanization is the process of an immigrant to the United States of America becoming a person who shares American values, beliefs, and customs and is assimilated into American society. This process typically involves learning English and adjusting to American culture, and customs, while keeping the old foods and religion in accordance with the personal life.
The entire motivation to becoming a part of something, the process of becoming part of or more like something greater or the integration of the group the process in which one group takes on the cultural and other traits of a larger group is the assimilation we feel that has badly gone array in our nation. The integration of new knowledge or information with what is already known is the learning process.
Where on this planet earth has the notion of assimilation gone? Taking the high road as liberals think they do, assuredly they would argue for multiculturalism; although, there has never been a time throughout humankind’s existence on earth has two or more cultures ever seemed to get along peacefully.
One matter that we do know about insofar as history bears much adieu considering the force of multiculturalism and the effects it has on people and nations.
A simple instance worth reporting is the public position with matters of accepting more and more individuals from places other than home. This cannot be as the Group of Eight has done. The idea behind shuffling the papers around and saying “ah…we’ve got at least 70 votes for immigration changes…”
When in reality 65 to 80 percent of the American public disagrees with your assessment. Specifically at 50 percent that is 70 unqualified votes up against 160 million people. And the precept only gets worse.
History has recorded at least thirty (30) different times where the entire DREAM Act has been defeated by America’s voters. So why therefore is this messy piece of legislation still trying to make it obviously through the Senate?
Groups with a mission to spread prejudice and hatred against Muslims are coordinated and well financed, according to a report released by the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR, a Washington-based civil rights group.
The report, titled “Legislating Fear: Islamophobia and its Impact in the United States,” was released Thursday (Sept. 19), and it names 37 individuals and institutions that “were at the center of promoting Islamophobia in America” during 2011-2012.
The report, which found that incidents of hatred against Muslims had decreased slightly, includes a list of 32 other groups that promote Islamophobic themes as well as a “best list” of organizations that have sought to combat Islamophobia.
“American Muslims face discrimination every day,” said Nihad Awad, national executive director of CAIR. “Islamophobia is a threat to the safety of American Muslims.”
Think of Led Zeppelin in the early 1970s, I keep thinking in an endless loop “…ugh-ha-ha Ramble on…Ramble on…” Please be aware that we have downloaded their report, click here please; moreover, when a person of sensible mind reads the report, it really comes across as a real cry-baby mess.
Therefore we too, have our beliefs about just how and why organizations such as CAIR always scream and cry bloody murder when anyone says a thing about them albeit, positive, negative, or neutral.
We would like to mention a huge category that seems to have gone by the wayside with this group and several other groups as well. It is tragic that life seems to go in this way – if we let it…however, we can stop the blatant disregard for the rules simply by maintaining your own positions.
Categorically we refer to assimilation. The ideology of assimilation literally comes from the concept of Americanization. When in haste people in more difficult parts of the world, either by war, politics, purging, or other means of cleansing an entire region of people with differences have always wanted to immigrate to the United States. We do not believe it is necessary to itemize why that is; albeit, circumstances may have been different in their native countries.
I’ve frequently criticized “trusted traveler” programs enacted with the cooperation of the U.S. government, because they allow the possibility that terrorists will escape the security scrutiny to which everyone else is subject, merely because someone without a record paid $200. The programs are ripe for terrorist abuse. And, now, an unnamed (gee, I wonder why) Canadian man has proven that true. And it is not the first time I have mentioned this atrocity to you about one of these transgressions by a “trusted traveler.”
All representatives and senators of the U.S. Congress should be making notes of this border protection. It is exactly as we have explained so many times. The government who every four months or so goes through turmoil that has a detrimental effect on the citizenry – thinking the government is going to shut down!
Why you ask? It is the simple act of what we are taught in education; however, it is also an act that should be drilled home by our parents. It is your basic balancing one’s budget. It seems as though the spend thrift ideology that implores the POTUS and believed in by so many of his Democrat Party members does not do well with costs going through the roof.
Yet, let me digress. What this article is about is the non-secure borders in all cardinal directions of the compass. Think this notion over and then reflect. What is Afghanistan’s major export? Peru and Bolivia are the same although their product is on the other side of the spectrum. Furthermore, what Mexico exports as well as just about the entire Middle and South American nations make money.
The moral of this article is that Afghanistan’s major export is the opium derivative heroine. Now as we continue to look at Peru and Bolivia one of their major exports is cocaine. Working our way north geographically we come to Colombia and then Mexico. Mexico accounts for a major influx of marijuana as well as heroine and speed enhancing drugs into the American marketplace.
Therefore, how could it be possible that a nation has secure borders when 14 to 20 million illegal immigrants have moved in? Moreover, although this particular “trusted traveler” may be Muslim the area of importance is what he was smuggling into America – an incredible amount of ammunition.
How could a legislative branch of government even consider border hence, national security when there are sophisticated tunnels going to and from place A with a destination of the American south. And the issue remains that virtually nothing has been done to solidify our northern border.
How could anyone in their critical thinking look to allow in, legalize, and make a pathway to citizenship for reasons I am neglecting to tout. Fortune 500 companies wanting a cheaper labor force; furthermore, please explain to me how ObamaCare is helping this nation out – it certainly seems like a wonderful way to provide health coverage for those in need of it – however at a cost that is ruinous to our nation.
The White House later said that Kerry’s comment was rhetorical but within hours – hours in which the UN’s secretary-general Ban Ki-moon weighed in – the administration position had changed into one where the Russian plan could be considered.
Kerry says the plan will not derail the process for Congress to authorize military action and that the US will not play games.
Later, President Obama fronts interviews on no less than six US networks to say the Russian plan was a “potentially positive development,” and instructs Kerry to try to find a political solution. These interviews were originally intended for Obama to push the case for military action in Syria.
The prospect of Syria surrendering its chemical weapons has fueled hopes the U.S. will avert its fourth conflict in a decade, but U.S. officials face a daunting array of political, diplomatic and security obstacles.
We live in a world where a person reaps what they sow; if a person is about senseless acts of kindness as a way of their existence then we are positive that the person or people involved will flourish in whatever means.
Furthermore, we see that scenario as a two way street with opposite directions. Look into the world of Mr. Lot for example. In one day he meets these foreigner’s who he insists on feeding and to help make them comfortable on their journey. Later after a full belly and a bit of the wine harvest, Lot was about the man who said, “Nah gang, all keys must be surrendered because you are staying the night in our more than spacious home.
In less than 24 hours it was revealed that these foreigner’s were in fact not only pedophiles, but they had a certain urge to experience all the men of the city. Lot, being a man of gentle means and humble ways offered his daughters to these men but they wanted nothing to do with women.
So in the very short term Lot starts up a conversation with some members of his church who profess to be the word of God. Immediately the bargaining develops where Lot says, “If I can get them down to not molesting 100 men of our community will you let them and my family see freedom? Sure, no problem. Spotting something he can work with Lot then goes on to not harming 50 of them, 25, then 10 men, Lot was on a roll. Then he said, if I can get these foreigner’s to not molest just 1 man of the city, will you not destroy us?
And the reply was a unequivocal “Yes!” We’ve all heard the stories of Sodom and Gomorrah; well that is the tragedy of the story.
We have believed since old Mr. Loose Lips Obama spouted his flapping mouth off about his red line and the chemical weapons there was no other scenario that would have been possible as a neck saver for his arrogance. So what does this unabashed person do?
First he says we’ll engage our military and hit em’ like we did in Iraq! Ever so slowly when al-Assad used the heinous weapons against Syrians and Coptic Christians. Well then the argument came down like the stench of mustard gas in World War I under the notion of I guess I’ll involve Congress (they owe me for what I’ve been doing) plus it will buy me some more time to get our men and women in uniform ready. And I will not be the fall guy of the entire world!
“I don’t need their approval, and if I don’t get it – then we will do this anyway.” That is the responsibility factor of Barack Hussein Obama. Personally we feel that Mr. Putin of the Russian Federation fell victim to Obama’s ways – this time it was a last ditch effort. Or else Putin did the guy a real favor.
Now then we still need to address all of those advocacy groups here in the U.S. as well as the world. The last polling data that I’ve seen was that 91 percent of Americans wanted nothing to do with military action against Syria. So what is the deal here, all you who espouse their (I am a ) Human Rights Activist, we’d give our lives for another’s Civil Rights. Well then are you prepared to let this wanton maniac Assad continue with the chemical weapons? Or how about Russia and or Iran?
Just for the sake of a mental massage…how many people out there have thought this horrifying thought: What would we do if the military said “No!”
No one really believes that Congress must approve every use of force, but what is distinctly odd is that popular consensus covers extremes at both ends. Presidents routinely use force to protect American nationals abroad and to respond to specific, limited threats.
Everyone also agrees that presidents do not need congressional approval to defend the nation from attack or the threat of attack. We do not believe or condone this statement whatsoever. Indeed, we have given the president control over a world-destroying nuclear power with no legal barrier at all between his decision and his launching warheads. Somewhere between saving a kidnapped citizen and destroying the world, arguments over presidential authority arise.
Sure there are a lot, perhaps too many restrictions on how a president uses the assets of the United States military to ‘protect and serve.’ This of course is some very bad news for us.
We believe that the president should have some discretionary power when it comes to defending the nation from immanent attack by foreign entities. However, who decides what and from whom an inherent attack comes from and by what degree?
Surely one could argue that approximately 20 million foreign and without proper documentation settling at will in the United States could constitute an inherent attack on the U.S.A. Now if anyone reading this gives even a second thought to that notion, then shall we propose that 20 million Islam jihadists who believe in full Sharia law (mercy killings, genital mutilation, ad nauseam) moved into the nation’s borders?
I just wanted to make this as real and genuinely honest as possible. How does this statement faire with you?
“Presidents routinely use force to protect American nationals abroad and to respond to specific, limited threats.”
Now as for us we find that to be unequivocally false. Maybe if we were to ask the families of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, or indeed the loved ones of those heroic retired Navy Seals, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, who stayed their course and darn near won. Also Sean Smith was one of four Americans killed in the Benghazi attack Please someone tell me who was looking out for their protection?
While we are in these matters we ask the White House to provide us with the outcome of Agent Brian Terry and various other dedicated men and women who have been in Harm’s way. Brian Terry.
On August 7, 2008, Mexican troops crossed the border into Arizona and held a U.S. Border Patrol Agent at gunpoint. Agents stationed at Ajo, Arizona said that the Mexican soldiers crossed the border into an isolated area southwest of Tucson and pointed rifles at the agent, who has not been identified. The Mexicans withdrew after other U.S. agents arrived on the scene.
On numerous occasions Patrol Agents have been fired upon from the Mexican side of the international border. Intelligence gathering has discovered bounties being placed on Patrol Agents to be paid by criminal smuggling organizations upon the confirmed murder or kidnapping of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent. In 2008, intelligence learned of a two-million-dollar contract for the murder of a Border Patrol Agent.
In 2009 Border Patrol Agent Rosas was murdered in an ambush while on patrol; a bounty may have been paid to the assassins.
“Presidents routinely use what…”
Agent Aguilar died in the line of duty after being struck by a vehicle driven by a suspected narcotics smuggler.
Border Patrol Agent Jefferson Barr was shot and killed in Texas while attempting to arrest four suspected drug smugglers near the Rio Grande River. It is actually quite depressing compiling this list knowing that no one in government gives a hoot.
Responding to a question from a reporter, secretary of state John Kerry says this afternoon that there would be no need for military action if Assad gave up his chemical weapons – “but he isn’t about to do it, and it can’t be done, obviously.”
Russia, not missing a beat, took the answer and proposed a diplomatic solution – all Syrian chemical weapons will be handed over to an international team.
