Can You Hear Gunfire in the Background?
Another Amnesty Attempt
President Obama made an "important" speech (ever notice how all his speeches are important?) on immigration on May 10th. He made the usual talking points about how immigration reform is needed to fix our "broken immigration system." That is the standard mantra for the open borders crowd such as La Raza and illegal alien advocates such as Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois. He also echoed what Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano has stated; the border with Mexico is now secured. Big Sis might want to check with the dead Border Patrol agents the past 12 months on that one. President Obama might want to check with them also. But, I suspect he has better things to do, like seeking the destruction of Israel, for instance.
Once again, Obama is going to try and ram the Dream Nightmare Amnesty Act down the throats of the American people. We have anywhere from 15 to 20 million unemployed in this country. Those that are 45 and over have basically no hope of ever finding a meaningful job again. So, what is the President's plan to help all these unemployed Americans who have paid taxes all their working life to feed the illegal aliens in this country? He is going to put another 2-3 million young illegal children into the work pool. Somehow, he says this will help the economy. He says it will put more revenue into the economy. Unless he has a secret plan to employ all these illegal aliens upon passage of the Dream Act (which should never happen in a Republican dominated House), then that is not going to happen, ladies and gentlemen. It is a bald-face lie. President Obama, along with the majority of Democrats, feel that with the "...border now secure, it is time to pass an amnesty to help his reelection chances." Well, no, he didn't exactly put it that way. But, that was the underlying tone of his speech. Without the Hispanic vote, he is toast and he knows it. He has basically written off the blue collar white vote he got in 2008. That puts him on a very thin edge of winning or losing.
But, back to the topic...the Mexican border is far from secure. There are beheadings, people bathed in acid vats, people killed in their own homes for no other reason than just being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The Mexican border violence is spreading to the North American States of Mexico also. Just two years ago, five illegal aliens were found in a small town in central Alabama who were hog-tied and had their throats slit from ear to ear. The Mexican Drug War is not coming to a theater near you. It is coming to your neighborhood. It is an outright travesty and possibly an impeachable offense for the President to openly state our southern border is secure. He knows damn well it is not secure. I have heard and read in comments that gunfire did erupt during President Obama's speech on immigration in El Paso. Unfortunately, if MSNBC, CBS, CNN or even Fox News doesn't report it, that means it didn't happen. That is what we are being led to believe.
Maybe we should just forget the Mexican Border violence and concentrate on political violence inside this country,. What I am talking about? Oh, how about gunfire that sprayed the front of the Republican Headquarters in Washington D.C.? Yeah, click this link. I anticipate Attorney General Eric Holder to launch an immediate investigation to get to the bottom of it. Oh wait...."violence against conservatives" is considered non sequitur. Republicans...the Tea Party welcomes you to "our world".
