Protecting the Country Means Protecting the Border

Here is an oldie, but a goody from 2009. This shows you once again that illegal immigration is NOT a new issue for the American citizens. We have spoken time and time again to the isolated, insulated elites of Washington DC on this issue only to be ignored repeatedly. Bush, Obama, and many before them all ignored this problem. Now we’re not just speaking. We’re shouting, and if the elitist politicians don’t listen, we’ll stop shouting and start acting. When that point comes, and it’s not far away, those in power may want to look for a new country to live in, and make hasty arrangements to get there.

Keep you eyes on both hands in this government slight of hand trick. Bush tried to deflect attention away from the border, and the Obama administration is no different. The government is like Kevin Bacon in the parade scene of Animal House. They are saying “Remain calm. All is well…” just before being trampled to death by the stampede from the south. With the many attacks on your freedom being perpetrated by Obama, the congress, and senate, this is all a lot to keep up with. That’s what the liberals are counting on. They want you to feel overwhelmed and alone so you will just give up. DON’T DO IT! We may still have one last opportunity to fix this.


 

Protecting the Country Means Protecting the Border

Posted By Bobby Eberle On March 11, 2009 at 6:49 am

During the previous administration, few issues drew the wrath of the American people as illegal immigration and border security did. Funds were allocated for more border security agents, but those funds went unused. Legislation was put forward to reward illegal immigration. The American people spoke out and sent a message.

Now, there is a new administration, and nothing has changed. The violence along the Mexican border is increasing, and it is spilling over into our country. Action must be taken now. One of the fundamental roles of the federal government is to keep the country safe, so rather than spending trillions on stimulus or billions on studying cows and crickets, how about some real protection?

According to an Associated Press story running on GOPUSA — Lawmakers challenge border security priorities — “Since 2008, about 7,000 people have been killed in the Mexican drug wars, and violence is spilling into U.S. cities in some parts of the country. There have been reports of drug cartel members settling scores with adversaries in such places as Atlanta, Phoenix and Birmingham, Ala.”

Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-CA) said the problem with Mexico is “a lot more important, in my own judgment, than Afghanistan at this moment.” As the AP reports, “Lewis and other lawmakers Tuesday hammered the need for U.S. agencies to do a better job of working together to secure the border and keep the drug cartels from spilling their violence into the U.S.”

There always seems to be a breakdown between Washington and common sense. Cracking down on illegal immigration and ramping up border security has so many benefits that it seems almost silly to list them. But, for the benefit of the Washington elite, I’ll do so, and I’ll use small words.

First, it is THE LAW. Illegal immigration and illegal border crossings are ILLEGAL. Enforce the bleepin’ laws that are already on the books. We don’t need studies or commissions or reports or legislation. We just need people with the political will to enforce the current laws. If Mexican drug lords are crossing into sovereign America territory in the commission of crimes, arrest them! Don’t just turn a blind eye.

Second, it’s the economy, stupid. America is sending billions of dollars back across the border every year. If this money were to stay in this country to be used to purchase goods and services inside America, that would certainly be a “stimulus.” Stop allowing cash to flow out. Give American jobs to Americans.

Third, security starts at home. The Mexican violence is affecting Americans. People living near the border are fearful. Drug gangs are crossing the border, illegal alien suppliers are crossing the border, and America is doing a poor job in cracking down on these activities.

The federal government must take this problem seriously, and it must do it intelligently.

Just as the U.S. agencies need to do a better job coordinating resources, Lewis said, lawmakers need to work together and not in separate committees. Two committees held separate hearings on Mexico and border violence Tuesday. Two other committees have plans for more hearings on these issues later this week.

We can’t waste time duplicating efforts in multiple committees. Congress must get its act together. It has no problem passing bills loaded with earmarks, but it can’t seem to protect its own borders.

Fix income inequality with $10 million loans for everyone!

Former FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair, using my style of sarcasm, really lays it on Mr. Bernanke and the Obama administrations fiscal policies.  A very entertaining and educational article, assuming you are not one easily distracted by sarcasm.

Fix income inequality with $10 million loans for everyone!

By Sheila Bair, Published: April 13

Are you concerned about growing income inequality in America? Are you resentful of all that wealth concentrated in the 1 percent? I’ve got the perfect solution, a modest proposal that involves just a small adjustment in the Federal Reserve’s easy monetary policy. Best of all, it will mean that none of us have to work for a living anymore.

The Obama Oil Slick of Lies

Obama keeps lying about his accomplishments, or more accurately lack of accomplishment, in the area of oil production and energy policy.  I’m just calling it like it is.  He’s lying.  Once is a slip of the tongue, but repeating the same half-truths and outright falsehoods over and over is lying.

Here’s some of the crap he’s lying about.


Obama Lie:

  • “Anybody who suggests that somehow we’re suppressing domestic oil production isn’t paying attention.” (in Cushing, OK, Mar 22, 2012)

Truth:

  • See below

Obama Lie:

  • “Anyone who says that just drilling more will bring gas prices down … isn’t paying attention; they’re not playing it straight. We are drilling more. We are producing more…”  (in Cushing, OK, Mar 22, 2012)

Truth:

  • Again, continue reading below…

Obama Lie:

  • But the fact is, producing more oil at home isn’t enough by itself to bring gas prices down overnight.” (in Cushing, OK, Mar 22, 2012)

Truth:

  • He contradicts himself by saying the oil prices are driven by global supply and demand, but says that increasing our production won’t affect oil prices?!?!

Obama Lie:

  • Obama says that “offshore drilling would not lower gas prices today. It would not lower gas prices this summer. It would not lower gas prices this year. In fact, President Bush’s own Energy Department says that we won’t see a drop of oil from this proposal until 2017. It will take a generation to reach full production. And even then, the effect on gas prices will be minimal at best.”  (June, 2008)

Truth:

  • July 15, 2008: President Bush rescinds Executive Order banning offshore drilling.
    • Price of oil at close on July 14 — $145.18.
    • Price of oil at close on July 16 — $134.60.
  • “Crude-oil futures tumbled $4.14 to $134.60 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, bringing the contract’s loss to $10.58 over the past two sessions – the biggest two-day drop in crude prices since January 1991. Crude has lost $10.58 over the last two sessions, the biggest two-day price drop since January, 1991. It’s now 8.6% lower than the $147.27 record high hit last Thursday. Earlier in the session, futures slumped $6.74 to an intraday low of $132, the lowest for a front-month contract since June 12.”
  • FACT:  Oil prices are driven by demand, and SPECULATION about supply, as well as actual supply.  When speculators foresee a future decrease in world supply, they raise prices so that funds will be available to pay future higher prices.  When they foresee an INCREASE in supply (i.e. when new drilling is announced, or production restrictions are eased) the price comes down.

Obama Somehow Gets in Some Golf

OK, libs. Obama has out-golfed Bush by a wide margin. He’s still building that margin, and he’s sacrificing family time and the people’s time to do so. So give it up already and quit defending his recreation with the “But, but, but… Bush played golf” defense. Bush gave up the game when we went to war. What has Obama given up since getting us into two more wars? His support for American taxpayers? His pretense of supporting traditional American values? He hasn’t given up lavish partying and soaking up the perks of the presidency, that’s for DANG SURE.

Obama Somehow Gets in Some Golf

by Keith Koffler on June 12, 2011, 9:43 am

I know this will be surprising to everyone, but the president has gone golfing.(AGAIN…)

Having clearly had enough of the solitude of Camp David, where he and the family were making a rare weekend sojourn, the president choppered early this morning directly to Andrews and headed straight to the Air Force base golf course. Not clear whether Michelle in the girls are still at Camp David or back at the White House.

Remember in November: The Democrats Caused or Did Not Prevent the Housing Crisis

Here it is in their own words, folks.  The Republicans tried to head this off at the pass, but were prevented from doing so.  The Republicans aren’t blameless in this whole mess, but the root of this problem lies with democrat legislation.



Obama Wants You to Pay More for Energy

Obama said during his campaign that under his plan, the price we pay for energy would NECESSARILY SKYROCKET.  Does that sound like a receipe for economic success?  Does that sound like a plan that would help the average person?  The overwhelming evidence from Obama’s first 14 months in office would seem to support the theory that Obama is following a Cloward and Piven style strategy to intentionally collapse the economy and American way of life by introducing one crisis after another to which the system eventually will be unable to respond.

Now we see further evidence that Obama has no intention of trying to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.  He has no intention of trying to reduce the cost of our energy.  He has EVERY intention of using skyrocketing energy prices as a crisis from which he and the progressives can usurp even more control over our lives.

Mr. Obama, you and your progressive liberal friends may succeed in plunging our country into crisis, but you will never take it over.  When the balloon goes up, you spineless liberals won’t be able to stop American patriots from regaining control of this country and restoring CONSTITUTIONAL law.  Your attempted destruction of America will not be allowed to succeed.

The Obama Moratorium: No offshore drilling while he’s in office

By: Barbara Hollingsworth

The Obama administration’s six-month delay in approving new offshore drilling leases in federal waters will become a new three-year ban, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar quietly told reporters last Friday. Which means that no new oil and gas leases will be approved during President Obama’s term even though two –thirds of the American public supports such activity, according to a December 2009 Rasmussen poll.

Sixty percent also believe that gas and oil prices will drop if the government allows offshore drilling, opening up an estimate 14 billion barrels of oil and 55 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.  (Of course prices will drop.  During the ’70s when the Arabs jacked up oil prices, we started to get serious about drilling.  When we did, two things happened.  The supply of oil increased, thus dropping the price, and the Arabs saw that we were serious about supplying our own oil so they simply dropped their prices to a point that we could not afford to drill for our own oil instead of buying theirs.  If we start drilling, we will eventually produce our own oil as cheaply as the Arabs can and be able to control our own price and supply.  This will also buy us time to develop VIABLE sources of cleaner energy while not collapsing our economy.)

On July 14, 2008 President George W. Bush lifted an executive ban on Outer Continental Shelf leasing. On October 1, 2008, in a bipartisan agreement, Congress lifted another longstanding ban on new oil and gas leasing in the OCS.

Drilling was supposed to begin this July. But Salazar said he intends to discard the 2010-2015 lease plan developed by the Bush administration in favor of a new plan that won’t even go into effect until 2012.

“Secretary Salazar has finally confirmed what had long been feared – that the Obama Administration has no intention of opening up new areas for offshore drilling during his four-years in office, said Rep. Doc Hastings, the ranking Republican on the House Natural Resources Committee.

So for the next three years and probably more, trillions of dollars in domestic energy assets will remain untouched while billions of dollars more are spent on foreign oil.


REAL Class Was 1st on the Scene at Ft. Hood

Hope and change.  I was HOPING enough voters would wake up and CHANGE their minds about voting for a narcissistic, undocumented communist.

Sadly, that didn’t happen.  For those who pulled the lever for Dumb-O, the big eared communist, how’s that hope and change workin’ out for ya’?  Wait, don’t answer yet.  I’ll ask you again when all of the Obama non-tax increase tax increases hit your wallet this year and next.  Answer me then, and when you see what’s left of the private sector evaporate and the economy collapse.  Answer when you see the Obama government controlling EVERY aspect of your life.  Don’t you weren’t warned.


This reply is from a retired Special Forces soldier in Fayetteville, NC who was sent a copy of the picture below.

What is even better is the fact George W. Bush heard about Fort Hood, got in his car without any escort, apparently they did not have time to react, and drove to Fort Hood.  He was stopped at the gate and the guard could not believe who he had just stopped.  Bush only asked for directions to the hospital then drove on.  The gate guard called that “The president Is on Fort Hood and driving to the hospital.”  The base went bananas looking for Obama.  When they found it was Bush they immediately offered escort and Bush simply told them to shut up and let him visit the wounded and the dependents of the dead.  He (George W. Bush) stayed at Fort Hood for over six hours and was finally asked to leave by a message from the White House. Obama flew in days later and held a “photo” session in a gym and did not even go to the hospital.  All this I picked up from two soldiers here who happened to be at Fort Hood when it happened.

Class shows up…

The doctor had his tv on in his office when the news of the military base shootings came on. The husband of one of his employees was stationed there.

He called her into his office and as he told her what had happened, she got a text message from her husband saying, “I am okay.”  Her cell phone rang right after she read the message. It was an ER nurse,”I’m the one who just sent you a text, not your husband. I thought it would be comforting but I was mistaken in doing so. I am sorry to tell you this, but your husband has been shot 4 times and he is in surgery.”

The soldier’s wife left Southern Clinic in Dothan and drove all night to Ft.Hood. When she arrived, she found out her husband was out of surgery and would be OK. She rushed to his room and found that he already had visitors there to confort him. He was just waking up and found his wife and the visitors by his side.

The nurse took this picture.

"Class" showed up. Obama couldn't stand being upstaged, so he asked Bush to leave. As usual, Obama was putting his own image and desires ahead of the greater good, and the welfare of "his" soldiers. This is why not a single soldier, sailor, or airman I know is in a hurry to jump in front of a bullet headed for Obama.

What?  No news crews and cameras?  This is how people with class respond and pay respect to those in uniform.
