Do You Feel as If the United States Has Let You Down

Updated on August 3, 2019

Ignore the in-my-face obvious issues and lend all of my attention to unwarranted, groundless non-issues? Not happening!

It is not the United States letting these people down

This is what I immediately said to my television this morning...

(Come on now...you talk, yell, scream at your t.v....some of you even throw things at it and I am truly sorry that your team did not win!)

So, when the question, “do you feel the United States let you down” was posed to the Father of yet another victim of an Illegal immigrant, I said to my t.v., “no it’s not the United States of America that has let them down.”

“It’s not the President of the United States, allowing the potential for this to continually occur, that has let them down."

"It’s not the Republican Party nor the American people", that are okay with any of this." We do not wish for laws to be in place...and then to have them only apply to us!

Would anyone seriously attempt to make that case?

None of us, are letting them down.....

"It is the Democratic Party", along with their supporters, appointees and all who carry their water...who is letting them down!

Basically, this is the gist of what I said to my television this morning and I am sticking to it!

With you, my reading audience, I will take it further, members of the Democratic Party, according to this heartbroken Father, have not reached out to him or to any other members of his family.

I seriously doubt, they reach out to any of these families, so greatly affected, many completely devastated, by illegal entry and all that represents or by the 'special provisions' they, the Democratic Party, have and work so hard, to keep in place.

These provisions are in place by design, they exist, in order to protect the best interest of this paticular criminal element and not the law-abiding citizen, that's a fact!

I will take it even further, with each new devastating, heart-breaking, shouldn't-have-happened-here story to make its way into our hearts and minds, the Democratic Party has even more blood on their hands!

Angel Families

Angel Families is a national organization of relatives of victims killed by illegal immigrants. President Donald Trump has invoked the group from time to time. The mother of a deceased child in an Angel Family is known as an "Angel Mom."

Working against the best interest of this Country

How do the Democratic Party and left leaning Judges, handle each and every protection put in place or each and every attempt to put protections in place?

Well, look no further than this morning's news story, 'Federal Judge....and here is where the different news outlets can get creative with their headlines.... Federal Judge blocks...Federal Judge halts...Federal Judge shoots down...Federal Judge stops Trump'.....

All of this is happening as Angel families appear on television or their stories appear in print; stories of their loved ones, killed by someone that shouldn't even be here and the stories are always similar, always heartbreaking, with the saddest possible ending!

It is happening as non-ending caravans are working their way to our southern border.

These aren't caravans of people that have gone through the ten step application process to become a citizen of the United States. These aren't people that have passports and/or green cards and/or a permission slip in hand, with their own personal Ambassador escorting them into their new home. They are not legally returning home to the States.

No, they've done none of that, they haven't completed any 'process', they do not have any papers in their possession and yet...they believe, (they've been led to believe) they are entitled to entry and that they are justified in doing so, any which way they can. Even when that means, they bypass all others attempting to enter legally, all others doing it the right way and even if that means, sneaking behind the backs of overworked border agents to make it to a sanctuary city.

They will use innocent children, if that's what it takes, to bypass our laws, in order to gain entry, in order to get one over on us....and I don't just mean one over the wall!

The Democratic Party and these Federal Judges; the latest, a Barack Obama appointee, stopping the President at every turn, are complicit in every single, heartbreaking story shared to date or that has yet to be shared!

Kick them while they're down

Here's the real kicker.....President Trump's administration, via Homeland Security Secretary Neilsen, brokered this deal, which was stopped, therefore stalled, by this latest activist Judge. There are {were} terms, an agreement. Mexico's President Lopez-Obrador agreed to and has allowed for, those seeking asylum in the States, to stay in Mexico, while awaiting their court dates.

And yet....with terms in place, an agreement worked out, attempts to have protections in place, for all people of this Nation, an Obama appointee, Judge Jon Tigar (San Francisco) [blocks,halts, shuts down, stops] kicks...Angel families, while they are down!

Aren't they really kicking every single law-abiding American citizen, when they do these things over and over and over?

If not Tigar, another radical Judge...playing politics from the bench, in order to stop President Trump from performing his duties; an oath to protect our borders, this Country, all citizens, our laws...is waiting in the wings, just down the hall, to the left!

The Democrats allegiance, it seems to me, is to all but, their constituents...all but, citizens of the United States...all but, those who've done things the right way to enter in, assimilate and become a part of the U.S.A.

~~~

Our family came much too close for comfort, to becoming one of those families speaking out, telling the story of having a loved one harmed or worse, by a person here illegally.



Too close for comfort....

My daughter and her friend were stopped at a light, waiting to make a left turn and a person, here illegally, driving with much more than a slight buzz and without an i.d., driver's license, registration, insurance....without a care of giving a damn about anything or anyone, hit the back of her truck at full speed. THEN, he did not see fit (probably because he wasn't fit to do much of anything) to check on my daughter and her friend....instead, he fled the scene!

He was caught, but only because his car was no match for the truck my daughter was driving, well, completely stopped in. His car was as trashed as he and so both were found, not too far from the scene of the accident.

Thank God, they were spared, but what if.....as passionate as I am, I'd never stop telling the story...I've shared this story, multiple times and I will share multiple times more, because these stories MUST BE shared!

There are consequences to the actions of these people (not all) but too many, breaking our laws, entering in and not giving a damn about my daughter, your son, my Dad, your Mom.....

Why should they care, they're given a pass and then they witness an entire political party, along with radical Judges and biased news reporters....continually "shutting down" the President.

They are welcomed by the open arms of liberal Mayors, offering them sanctuary, with a living to boot...seeing to it that they need not care to care.... because they take precedence over all others!

That's a fact!

~~~

I have all of that out of my system and perhaps tomorrow morning...

I'll take my coffee to the back porch and not bother to turn on the television!

      Thank you Yves! Appreciated.

      It was years ago, when my daughter was rear-ended, but with every new story of a life lost to an illegal, here without purpose, using us, made to feel above-the-law, by a certain political party, I am reminded of that night.

      It could have so easily been us, telling our story to all that would listen!

      Republican and Democratic politicians have dropped the ball many times over the years, when it comes to 'fixing' immigration, no doubt!

      That's where Trump comes in!!!

      BUT, he is undermined with every action, stalled at every turn!

      We all hear your passion, AB, and I sympathize with you and all American families living on the border (and elsewhere). I do think that many immigrants come here out of real desperation. Perhaps some don't understand the concept of "waiting in line" and that our legal system might provide a path. I don't know. But Coyotes know and they take advantage of all opportunities to line their pockets.

      That doesn't make illegal immigration good or right. In fact, it is bad. And so, I applaud President Trump for trying to fix this problem. That being said, my understanding is that some hard-core Republicans could have compromised the first time the bill for illegal immigration passed the House under this Administration.

      But now, at this juncture, the Democrats will not give Trump a win on immigration or anything else. We have reached a dangerous impasse that has (already has) severe consequences for our nation-----as you so passionately described.

      Thanks be to God that your daughter was spared. I feel as if the only thing we can do at this time is pray. Pray hard. Thank you for loving this nation and for being willing to call a spade a spade, no matter the situation.

      Best line..."made more money and paid less in taxes", that's a win-win Eric! Congrats!

      Even when our economy is booming, we can never get so comfortable that we forget to pay attention, that's for sure.

      I just cannot put this mess on a party. Parties are supposed to kick butt against the other - by all means necessary.

      It is folks that do criminal acts in order to curry favor with a party that are to blame.

      I would never have thought that My POTUS would be so stinking squeaky clean. How did he do that? (Why do we leave out RBG?)

      I did hear about some sitting politicians that claim they still have the smoking gun. Although it is strange to have a smoking gun with no crime.

      Now how in the hell can a public servant withhold that "evidence" from a near two year investigation. What could be worse obstruction of justice and a willing accomplish to felony fraud?

      OTOH that is just the way it is. But who ever is really running my country. Good job. Even my crazy ass West/left Coast.

      By the by - wife tax preparer for HRB says we made more and paid less in taxes for last year.

      I live in a country where I need to pay attention so as not to get obese. That is crazy. I have the best public "parks" in the world. Am I such a lazy American?

      They went with the crowd, that's for darn sure and they indeed made history, he, Obama, was elected to office.....twice!

      Not sure what kind of "change" they were hoping for in the best Country that God gave man, but then many of the same people that elected him are supporting their Party, no matter where they take them! Scary!

      Honestly, many of the candidates on both sides speak a good game. You have to listen carefully to discern the truth or research he rest of what hey stand for. But sometimes I wonder who and why? Obama, for instance....it seemed as if people just voted for him for the sake of making history. And other people voted for his promises of change, hoping for the best. And still others voted for him just to go with the crowd.

      Hi Shannon, who IS putting radicals into office? Good question!

      Who put Ilhan Omar (D) Minnesota into office? What are her intentions? Who are her constituents and what are their intentions?

      Does she recognize the U.S. Constitution or does she only recognize Sharia law?

    • abwilliams profile imageAUTHOR

      A B Williams

      Hi Pop, they are pathetic! Look no further than Rep. Omar (D) Minnesota to see just how pathetic! She brushed aside the attack on U.S. soil on 9-11-2001 as if it was NOTHING! To quote Ms. Omar, "some people did something". If we continue to elect people like her into office, we'll start hearing/seeing things such as, 9-11 never happened, it was made up, we deserved it....as haters have always said about the Holocaust.

      Haha. I'm a Devil's Advocate more often than you may imagine. I told you, I don't disagree with your points about what the Democrats are doing and trying to do. Just the statement. If it were my child killed by someone not only here illegally but allowed to stay here knowing full well he's here illegally, I think I would feel very let down by my country. After all, who put those radical people in office? Probably some of the people I know and could very well love helped vote them in. That's when it's time to vote differently the next time. But are we (this time I do mean the collective whole)?

      You hit the nail on the head, and told the absolute truth about this nightmare. I saw on tv that our senators walked out when a border patrol agent was speaking. The Dems are ruining this nation. They care, as you pointed out, about power and nothing else. I believe they should all be held in contempt. I also believe they should forfeit their salary. They are not doing the job they were elected to do.

      Yes Shannon, I believe that the Democratic Party (which has a horrible history to begin with) has been infiltrated by the most radical of the radical and they...are calling the shots. I'll not give the Republican Party a pass, they are far from perfect, but I'll not lump them in with Dems. They, at least, take a stand for LIFE, for our God-given RIGHTs, that the left continually tries to steal. They, the right, aren't in the control and conquer category/column, where the left lives.

      P.S. Who are you and what have you done with Shannon. ;)

      I agree Eric and I am so glad that Barr will pursue a case to find out the; who, what, when, where, how.....in the pathetic and desperate attempt to take out POTUS.

      No, I think those comparisons are apples and oranges. It's not even the same as radicalized terrorist groups. Look at it as if you were a foreign outsider trying to follow American politics. From that perspective, is the left really just a radical group?

      While I don't necessarily blame the United States as an entity (meaning all people collectively), the government is responsible for making the laws that allow things like sanctuary cities to exist and for not securing the country better.

      I will just use "dark state" to label the bad guys and dolls that let themselves go to hell on earth. They fully chose a path away from right and wrong and love and integrity.

      I just go with sedition and treason. Yes you can use rhetoric in politics, yes you can try to beat someone with words.

      Here goes as quick as I can do it. "Conspiracy" gets most high profile bad guys. If you hatch a plan with two or more to do criminal conduct that is conspiracy? Nope/. It needs an act in furtherance of the plan and criminal conduct.

      In a clearly concerted action plan. The dark state folks acted in furtherance of trying to unseat a POTUS. Leave politicians out of it. Who cares?

      I kind of go a strange route on these bad guys. They are no longer US citizens.

      Please excuse my comments as I do not follow "news". "News" to me means we have a new PTA president ;-)

      So I just read things like this rather than listen to a pundit. 18 U.S. Code § 2381. Treason

      Blaming the U.S. for the behavior of a radicalized agenda-driven political party is like blaming the gun and ignoring the shooter, don't you think?

      We'll agree to disagree on this!

      I haven't bread your comments yet because I am dealing with some things bat home that have my attention now that evening has set in, but I will say that I disagree with you this time. Not with your major points, but with the statement that it isn't the US letting people down. Yes, it is. Because the Democratic Party is composed of American citizens just the same as the Republican Party is. Those two major parties have controlling power and they both ARE represent the United States as a government. If one side makes the other look bad, it's still the US as a whole to blame. After all, we the citizens, structured our government that way.

      So true, Mexico needs to be as accommodating as they possibly can. Mexico’s President has his work cut out for him, as the middle man. I don’t think anyone envys him that post.

      Attorney General Bill Barr has assembled a "team" to investigate the origins of the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, an administration official briefed on the situation told Fox News on Tuesday.

      Hmmm, now we'll get to the bottom of how the FBI let us down! Unlike the Mueller investigation there is evidence of a crime or this "team" would not be assembled - Barr is going to show them how an investigation should be done!

      I guarantee Mexico will do whatever Trump wants to keep the border from being shut down. Our economy can take a hit the way it's booming, theirs can't. And on top of that a closed border means all these "asylum" seekers will be stuck in Mexico. We have no room for them so what do you think Mexico is going to do with them? But you won't hear the media even mention any of this.

      Thanks for welcoming Mr. Rigs, T.

      I’ll add, if it takes shutting down the border...again, until the Dems come to their senses....hmmm maybe I should go a different direction, if it takes shutting it down, to save lives, then by all means President Trump shut it down!

      Hey, Mr Rigs! Welcome to hub pages. Good start for only being here for 30 some minutes!

      Wait a minute, the people invading the border are looking for asylum, not jobs.

      Yeah those 1%ers are the root of all evil. I wonder why they actually pay 40% of all the tax revenue! They must be pretty stupid.

Proud and tall. I asked him lemons from his tree -- He just yelled "incoming" and hit me in the head. I got a sore head and lemonade .. he got a laugh.

      My country has never let me down. Refuse to let my neighbor down. One house at a time is my country.

      AB you have nailed it on this one!

      And when hasn't the Democrat party let us down?

      They defended slavery,

      started the Civil War,

      founded the KKK,

      and fought against every major civil rights act in U.S. history!

      So why not continue to try to destroy America, make it socialist and keep it from becoming great again?
