The End Of Immigration Enforcement In America

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Obama’s blatantly unconstitutional moves on immigration have reached new heights. I did not see this one coming:

Friday’s White House meeting with the presidents of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador came as the administration considered creating a pilot program giving refugee status to young people from Honduras. White House officials said the plan would involve screening youths in their home countries to determine whether they qualify for refugee status. The program would be limited and would start in Honduras but could be expanded to include other Central American countries.

Notice my emphasis above. They are going to use this in multiple countries and this was a planned strategy all along. Obama is planning to bring in up to five million illegal aliens, forever changing the voting demographic, erasing our borders and ending immigration enforcement as we know it. His hubris is breathtaking in scope. The meeting yesterday with Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador had nothing to do with slowing down the number of aliens coming here… it had everything to do with the promise of wealth redistribution and collectively aligning with communists to the south of us.

The RINOs in DC are saying they are pushing action on the border by sending National Guard troops to the border, increasing the number of U.S. immigration judges and changing a law so that migrant youths arriving by the tens of thousands could be sent home more quickly — all for less than a billion. How about zilch, you Progressive morons? Louie Gohmert is once again absolutely right on the issue. How about following the laws on the books already and deporting ALL of their sorry asses? The use of National Guard troops is a state to state issue and would be unnecessary if a fence were really built and the Border Patrol were allowed to do their jobs. And you want to add more judges? Seriously? More judges that will either be liberal shills for the Obama agenda or bought and paid for tools for crony capitalists? The answer to America’s ills will never be more lawyers and judges — that is the ultimate ‘less is more’ scenario.

As our esteemed leaders get ready to jet off to a five week ill-earned hiatus, Obama will be putting the finishing touches on a major immigration move. Buckle up, because here it comes. Using his poison pen, Obama is about to ink an executive order that ‘nullifies’ our immigration laws. With the Constitution in ashes and an impotent Congress, Obama is sashaying into the sunset playing the role of pied piper to millions who comprise a barbarian force that is storming our borders and invading our country with nary a shot fired. It is a brilliant tactic to destroy the home of the brave and once free. Obama is prepared to provide millions of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. work authorization via executive orders, plunging America into third world status awash in so-called refugees:

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences.

The activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. They hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated 11.7 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. “He seems resolute that he’s going to go big and go soon,” says Frank Sharry, executive director of the pro-reform group America’s Voice.

According to Jeff Sessions, that “temporary relief from deportation” would be a de facto ending of immigration enforcement:

It has now been extensively reported that these executive actions will likely expand his Deferred Action program (DACA) to apply to an additional 5–6 million adult illegal immigrants. The existing DACA program has been widely misunderstood. The executive action did not, as The Hill writes today, only result in ‘deferred deportations for young undocumented immigrants.’ Illegal immigrants in the interior of the U.S. have already, as a practical matter, been immune from enforcement under this Administration. DACA applies to individuals up to 30 years of age and provides actual amnesty papers, photo ID, and work permits to illegal immigrants—who can then take any job in America.

The President’s planned executive orders would expand this permitting program to another 5–6 million illegal immigrants. This would effectively end immigration enforcement in America.

Sessions is calling for Americans to melt the phone lines to stop this travesty:

Sessions wants Americans to melt Congress’ phone lines, demanding their members make a precondition of any border crisis bill that Obama’s executive order amnesty via the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and any future plans be stopped.

“The American people have begged and pleaded for years for our laws to be enforced,” Sessions said in his statement. “We have people in our own country living in violence, fear and poverty every single day. They have demanded an immigration policy that puts their jobs, wages and communities first. Every citizen should pick up the phone and ask of their congressional representative: where do you stand?”

Sessions said that it would be wrong for any member of the House or Senate to support any border crisis bill that doesn’t end DACA and block the president from expanding it.

“No Member—House or Senate, Democrat of Republican—should support any bill with respect to the border crisis that does not include language explicitly prohibiting the Administration from taking such action,” Sessions said. “Congress must foreclose any possibility of these unlawful executive actions before congressional funding is granted. This is an essential precondition.”

Obama’s La Raza connected goons are giddy over the prospect:

If Obama succeeds, the free America we have always known will no longer exist. He has three years to do even more damage and trust me, he will. We have elected a stone-cold Marxist and he is permanently solidifying control for the Marxists in the US in perpetuum.

His intended actions should send a shudder down America’s spine:

The most aggressive option in this category would be expanding deferred action to anyone who could have gained legal status under the bipartisan bill that passed the Senate in June 2013. According to a Congressional Budget Office analysis, the Senate bill would have covered up to 8 million undocumented immigrants. It is unlikely that Obama goes that far. But even more modest steps could provide relief to a population numbering in the seven figures. “You can get to big numbers very quickly,” says Marshall Fitz, director of immigration policy at the Center for American Progress, a progressive think tank.

One plausible option would be to expand DACA to include some family members of those already eligible. Says a Congressional aide: “While there are several options to provide temporary deportation relief, we expect an expansion of the DACA program to other groups of individuals to be the most clear opportunity.”

It’s hard to pin down how many people this would cover; it would depend on how the administration crafts the order. But the numbers are substantial. According to the CBO, there are an estimated 4.7 million undocumented parents with a minor child living in the U.S., and 3.8 million whose children are citizens. Around 1.5 million undocumented immigrants are married to a U.S. citizen or lawful resident, but have been unable to gain legal status themselves.

Obama could also decide to grant protections for specific employment categories, such as the 1 million or so undocumented immigrants working in the agricultural sector, or to ease the visa restrictions hindering the recruitment of high-skilled foreign workers to Silicon Valley. Either move would please centrist and conservative business lobbies, who have joined with the left to press for comprehensive reform, and might help temper the blowback.

The second bucket of changes Obama is considering are more modest enforcement reforms. Jeh Johnson, Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, is deep into a review of the administration’s enforcement practices, and it is likely Obama will order some changes to immigration enforcement priorities. But if these tweaks are the extent of the changes, it would be a blow to activists expecting more. “That’s crumbs off the table compared to the meal we’d be expecting,” says Sharry.

The Center for American Progress (a Marxist think tank), sayeth thus:

“There are two ways this could go,” says Fitz of the Center for American Progress. Obama will be remembered as either “the deporter-in-chief, or the great emancipator. Those are the two potential legacies.”

Actually, no… he will be remembered as the destroyer of the Republic, as he is neither deporting illegal aliens, nor emancipating anyone. He is selling whole cultures into mass slavery and is fully aware he is doing so.

While wantonly ignoring our laws, Obama’s foot soldiers are outwardly poking the American badger. Realizing that eventually Obama’s lawlessness will force impeachment, we are hearing references to it everywhere these days. From Obama joking with an audience of illegal aliens and Progressive sycophants: “You’re not going to get me impeached, are you?” (hah, hah — it is to laugh) To his adviser saying the following:

Washington — President Obama will go ahead with a “very significant” executive action on immigration after the summer – a move that may well trigger impeachment proceedings against him, senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer told reporters at a Monitor breakfast Friday.

“The president acting on immigration reform will certainly up the likelihood that [Republicans] would contemplate impeachment at some point,” said Mr. Pfeiffer, who has been at the Obama White House since its inception.

A lot of people in Washington laughed off Sarah Palin’s call to impeach the president for executive overreach, Pfeiffer said, but “I would not discount that possibility.” Polling shows strong support for the idea among the GOP base, he said, adding that House Speaker John Boehner (R) of Ohio has opened the door to the possibility with his lawsuit against Obama.

Obviously, the impeachment meme is being utilized to raise money and temperatures for the Progressive cause. For his High Crimes and Misdemeanors, now too numerous to elaborate on, Obama damned well should be impeached. At the very least, it might slow him down. The man should be removed from office and should inhabit a teeny tiny cell for the rest of his days, as should all of his cohorts. Fully one-third, and probably way more than that, want Obama impeached now. I say give America what she wants and show that this lawlessness will not go utterly unanswered. No one is above the law here.

I am sick and tired of wishy-washy corrupt RINOs who lack the fortitude to do the constitutional thing, the right thing and impeach this asshat. There are a few that seem to have a spine and sense of ethics though:

Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) told colleagues that the House should pass legislation with new steps to secure the border, and tell Obama if he didn’t implement it, they would impeach him.

“He either enforces the laws on the books—as he was hired and elected to do—or he leaves Congress no option. This is not our choice, this is the President’s choice and I would advise him to uphold the law on the books,” Yoho said in a written statement after the meeting.

He actually got hissed at by other Republicans if you can believe it. I’m all for suing the Obama Administration, but impeach the bastard while you are at it. Unless of course you cherish the very real possibility of UN troops on our soil and a North American Union. We are part of the UN and do I need to remind everyone what UN military personnel can be called upon to do:

  • Monitor a disputed border
  • Monitor and observe peace processes in post-conflict areas
  • Provide security across a conflict zone
  • Protect civilians
  • Assist in-country military personnel with training and support
  • Assist ex-combatants in implementing the peace agreements they may have signed

Sarah Palin and Allen West are correct, it is way past time to impeach Obama:

Citing Obama’s “dereliction of duty” in enforcing the country’s immigration laws and securing the border, Palin said, “if that’s not impeachable, then nothing is. And if he’s not impeachable, no one is.”

“It takes guts to hold them accountable,” she said. “It takes political will.”

Palin told Republicans to “don’t be afraid to raise” the impeachment issue because Obama is making “himself a ruler and not a president.” Palin said America had a revolution because “we don’t do kings.”

She observed that “these days you hear a lot of politicians denouncing Barack Obama,” saying he’s a lawless and imperial president who ignores court orders, changes laws by executive fiat, and refuses to enforce laws that he just doesn’t like. Palin asked the politicians who are complaining, “what are ya gonna do about it?

“Let’s call their bluff,” Palin said. “I’m calling their bluff because we need a little less talk and a lot more action.”

Hmm … “we don’t do kings” … While a cogent observation in its own right, it reminds me of a story of another king. Given, there is artistic license in the “quote” that follows, the spirit of it is exactly what our dear ruler has in mind; from Braveheart, this line from Longshanks:

… “The trouble with Scotland… is that it’s full of Scots!” [proposes plan to "reinstitute ... prima noctes" ... that "our nobles shall have sexual rights to [any common girl] on the night of her wedding. If we can’t get them out, we’ll breed them out.”

In Obama’s variation, to “breed them out” would take too long, so he solves it by importing children of the “right breeding” to supplant our legitimate population with what the Department of Fish & Game’s ecologists would call an “invasive species.”

Also, keep in mind that, to Obama, these are not children, not people: these are diminutive munitions. Clear your mind for a moment. In any discussion of arms, a shield is a form of weaponry — defensive, yes — but weaponry. What, then do you call an instrument of offense and invasion — a breaching weapon — meant to bring down the walls? That’s not a shield, but it is a weapon. Obama has promoted children from “human shields” (as used by, say, Hamas) to a new order of munitions: the human breaching ram. It’s pretty much the ultimate in dehumanization. He cares not what becomes of them, but he knows anyone with a conscience does, and he has crafted a diabolical gambit: if we embrace these children, we are destroyed in the collapse of our systems; if we reject them, we are “exposed” as heartless monsters.

To employ children in this role of breaching weapons is monstrous, and the monster-in-chief is plainly a sociopath of the first order, a “man” for whom humanity is just a word.

Obama is entering his end game to do away with immigration enforcement here in the US. What will America do to stop this Marxist? Impeach and prosecute. And that goes for everyone around him as well.

An ode to the rise of the street art resistance… You guys rock!!! Freaking epic – vampire, RINO and Progressive hunters, unite!


Unsavory Agents

Ted Cruz via Facebook:

Of all the places I never thought to be mentioned, HBO’s True Blood vampire show would have to be near the top of the list. Sunday night, they aired a misogynist and profanity-ridden episode where Texas Republicans are murdered attending a “Ted Cruz fundraiser.”

Well, I’m sorry to have lost the vampire vote, but am astonished (and amused) that HBO is suggesting that hard-core leftists are blood-sucking fiends…

[...]

Then again, I guess I never had a chance w/ the vampire vote since the dead tend to vote overwhelmingly for Dems.

Alea iacta est… the Council has spoken, the votes have been cast and we have the results for this week’s Watcher’s Council match-up.

“One of the critical issues that we have to confront is illegal immigration, because this is a multi-headed Hydra that affects our economy, our health care, our education systems, our national security and also our local criminality.” – Allen West

“Poor Mexico, so far from G-d, so close to the United States.” – Porfirio Diaz, Former Mexican Presidente 1876-1911

“BREATHES there the man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,’This is my own, my native land!’… – Sir Walter Scott, Innominatus

Terresa over at The Noisy Room has been all over the story of what’s going on at our southern border and her winning essay, Orchestrated Invasion – The Eradication Of America’s Borders is a great read that examines what’s going on in-depth and shows exactly how it happened, who’s responsible and where we’re headed unless we fix it. Here’s a slice:

If you had any doubts whatsoever that the whole border crisis was planned, this should fix that. Obama and Biden will meet with Central American leaders next week at the White House to discuss promoting legal, orderly migration. In essence, they will discuss the eradication of our borders, the end of American sovereignty and the furtherance of a collaborative, communist plan to redistribute wealth, people, assets and to create, in the end, a North American Union.

America, you have been betrayed by your leaders and your country is in the final stages of a destructive conspiracy that benefits a few elitist Marxists and destroys your liberty forever. How’s that hope and change working for you now?

For decades, US corrupt officials have sent billions to Central and South America to line the pockets of corrupt officials there. The thought was that it would placate them and keep them from attacking us, but that only makes your enemies hate you more. Virtually every country there is now ruled by a Communist and/or dictator. We have declared the Monroe Doctrine dead and now Russia, China and Iran are moving into our backyard en force.

For those who missed what the Monroe Doctrine was all about, it was basically a declaration that those Latin-American nations which had declared themselves independent should be free from European interference and aggressive colonization. America had only recently achieved her own independence and considered “any attempt on their part to extend their system to any portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace and safety.” Declaring the Monroe Doctrine “dead” basically says, “we no longer care about our national security, so we invite our aggressively colonial buddies — communist and otherwise — to subvert and conquer our Southern neighbors.”

Instead of fighting back against an ever growing terrorist threat, Obama and Biden are enabling them by actively recruiting a precursory invasion force of so-called children in the 10′s of thousands to come across our border, using American’s heart strings as a garrote to strangle us with. Obama is then shipping them to every corner of the country and then the real invasion comes when the families follow by the millions, changing the voting demographic in America once and for all, ensuring Marxist control no matter what happens here. Obama has three years left to finish the destruction of America and it is right on schedule. Now, he goes to meet leaders who have signed agreements to fast-track this atrocity. Faster, faster pussycat… kill.

From Ironic Surrealism:

(The Hill) –President Obama and Vice President Biden will meet with the presidents of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador on July 25, the White House announced on Friday.

Obama and Biden will meet with President Otto Pérez Molina of Guatemala, President Salvador Sánchez Cerén of El Salvador and President Juan Hernández of Honduras, to discuss the recent surge of migrants across the U.S. border.

In the meeting, the leaders will discuss how the governments are “cooperating to promote safe, legal, and orderly migration” between the countries “in a spirit of shared responsibility” including “with respect to the return of family units,” a process which began this week for the three Central American countries, according to the White House.

The meeting is also expected to include discussions on how the countries can work together to bolster economic growth and development along with security in the central American region as well as address the “factors” that are causing the migrants to attempt to cross the border.

Everything about this incursion reeks of evil. Obama is directly involved in human trafficking, the heartless deaths of who knows how many children, rape, murder, the importation of deadly infectious diseases, gangs, drugs and weapons and the furtherance of the spread of poverty and misery throughout the United States. Obama hates America and wants her brought to her colonial knees. This is his gift to us – the gift of death, destruction and slavery.

Much more at the link.

In our non-Council category, the winner was Sultan Knish with It’s Another “Death to the Jews” Weekend, submitted by The Noisy Room. It’s interesting that Knish’s piece and the second place winner, Mark Steyn’sFields Of Blood, submitted by Bookworm Room cover very similar ground, but from different aspects, with the Sultan focusing on a more narrow canvas, while Steyn broadens his. Great reads and recommended, both of ‘em.

The FEC Embraces Fascism – Implements Conservative Book Banning

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Who says fascism is out of style? Evidently the FEC is making it chic again. The Chairman of the Federal Election Commission berated Democratic colleagues who imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan’s new book, The Way Forward. In essence, they opened the door to future book regulations or even the banning of books. The meeting got heated to say the least and in the end, the FEC declined to definitively spare book publishers from the reach of campaign finance rules. Stoke the fires boys! We’ve got some book burnin’ to do!!!

“That is a shame. … We have wounded the free-press clause of the First Amendment,” Goodman told FoxNews.com after the tense meeting. Goodman previously has warned that the commission wants to start regulating media.

From The Washington Examiner:

“By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E. Goodman, one of three Republicans on the six-person FEC.

“That failure reveals a festering legal uncertainty and chill for the free press rights of books and book publishers to publish and disseminate political books free from government regulation,” he added.

Of course, immediately following this truthful assessment, Democratic Commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub started screaming: “Liar, liar, pants on fire!” Or something to that effect as she categorically stated, “No one is banning books.” Which just verifies that is indeed what they intend to do. Right is wrong, up is down – it is the Progressive/Marxist way.

The Democrats were insulted that someone would dare speak the truth and petulantly refused to attend subsequent meetings. They either get their tyrannical way or they throw a tantrum. How fitting for a bunch of infantile despots.


Book burning in Berlin, May 1933.

Goodman and the other two Republicans on the commission of six, issued a six-page critique of the commission’s vote on the Ryan book. The vote imposed constraints on the publisher and on how Ryan’s re-election campaign and leadership political action committee, Prosperity Action, can promote the book on websites. Next step, actually controlling and monitoring web sites as well.

Democrats on the commission have been chipping away at conservative rights everywhere and whenever they can, while Republicans have been working to protect rights. Even rights that extend to those such as George Soros.

Goodman has been ringing the alarm bells that conservative news sites such as the Drudge Report may face regulations as the Democrats work to stifle free speech with the “media exemption” – which defines who the press really is and who gets to report what. That, my friends, is the heart of fascism. It basically does away with your First Amendment rights, just as Ted Cruz has pointed out repeatedly. I’m no fan of Paul Ryan’s, but no one should have the authority or power to say what you can write, how you promote it or what you can say. Unless of course you are a Leftist politician who doesn’t give a rip about the Constitution.


Cruz: ‘Fahrenheit 451’ Democrats are playing with fire


Examples of books burned by the Nazis on display at Yad Vashem.

Chairman Goodman was right on the money when he said this was a missed opportunity to show support for freedom of the press – all of the press, not a select few:

In the case of the Ryan book, publisher Grand Central Publishing sought the broad media exemption from regulation, but Democrats rejected that and pushed for a different, commercial, exemption that imposes rules over the publisher’s politics and book pricing. Republicans went along and the commission approved that 6-0.

The commission also ruled that while Ryan can have his campaign and PAC buy books to give out, the promotion on his websites has to be limited to two sentences. There were concerns raised by Weintraub that Ryan was trying to profit off sales of the book promoted on his websites. Republicans carried that to victory in a 4-2 vote.

Goodman said the mixed decision for Ryan was another missed chance by the FEC to publicly show support for press freedom.

“This commission should stand up and recognize that books qualify for the media exemption and that book publishers can publish, market and disseminate their books on the same basis that the Washington Post, New York Times and Washington Examiner can,” he said.

The least that Paul Ryan’s people could have done was show they have some spine, but no… don’t want to ruffle Progressive feathers, do we?

Reached for comment, a Ryan spokesperson declined to speak to the dispute before the commission, but said: “We appreciate the Commission’s diligence and welcome the guidance provided in their advisory opinion concerning the publication and promotion of Paul Ryan’s upcoming book, The Way Forward.”

So, you welcome a blatant violation of your Constitutional rights? And it is not just yours, it’s all of ours as you are setting a precedent for the nullification of said rights. I’m just shaking my head on this in absolute stunned wonder. This should be on the front page of every news outlet and blog out there, but all I hear are crickets. The silence of a free people as their Republic dies echoes this quote: “So this is how liberty dies… with thunderous applause.”

Virtually every federal agency now is trampling the Constitution and our rights. And they aren’t hiding it – they are boldly going where no American Marxist has gone before. This travesty is a direct attack on the First Amendment:

“By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” Goodman asserted.

“That failure,” he concluded in a blistering dissent, “reveals a festering legal uncertainty and chill for the free press rights of books and book publishers to publish and disseminate political books free from government regulation.

Goodman further asserted to FoxNews.com that with yesterday’s ambiguous vote on Ryan’s book and publisher, the FEC has “wounded the free-press clause of the First Amendment.”

If Ryan thinks he can garner votes by playing both sides of the fence by being diplomatic here, he is delusional. At this rate, elections won’t mean spit by 2016. He won’t have to worry about getting elected, he’ll have to worry about which gulag to decorate.

It’s no surprise here that the FEC has embraced fascism. It’s no surprise that books are being banned, sites are being monitored and controlled, free speech is being squelched and the Constitution is being regulated out of existence. How long will America take this and how long will our Republic still stand? A fascist dictator is finishing his transformation of America – the rallying cry of Americans is no longer ‘join or die!’ but ‘impeach or die!’

Obama hates America and wants her brought to her colonial knees. This is his gift to us – the gift of death, destruction and slavery.

From The Camp of the Saints comes a timely reminder of Article IV, Section IV of the Constitution:

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

He goes on to make some great points in his post — here is one from James Madison, speaking before the Virginia Ratifying Convention on June 6, 1788:

[W]ithout a general controlling power to call forth the strength of the Union to repel invasions, the country might be overrun and conquered by foreign enemies.

America has knowingly elected the ultimate Enemy from Within. It’s no longer a question of his true intentions, it is the President’s sworn duty to protect us from enemies foreign and domestic. Instead, he has invited them in and actively aided and abetted them in attacking America. It is treason and Obama needs to be impeached for his High Crimes And Misdemeanors. The fact that we have not sufficiently stood up against Obama and faced his Marxist machinations head on is a very bad sign indeed. It shows complacency and apathy and a country who is submissively baring her throat to the blades of her enemies.

Over 57,000 minors have arrived and by year’s end, it will be 90,000. Double that for next year. I actually think these numbers are low-balled and that there are many more, but since the government keeps covering it up, we just don’t know. The fact that our government claims this meeting is to deter these countries from sending even more is a bald faced lie. These countries have already signed an agreement with Mexico to speed up more arrivals here in the US. Obama is saying one thing in the press and doing the opposite in his meetings with these tyrants. It’s an “ongoing collaboration” alright – a very treasonous one.

I especially found this quote of interest:

The statement from the White House said the leaders would also discuss how to address the underlying issues of poverty and security in the region that prompt Central Americans to leave their countries.

Read between the lines here. They are speaking about wealth redistribution and a Marxist form of security that is bound to be bad news for America in the extreme.

The lap dog media is spouting lies left and right, contending that the numbers of invaders is dropping off significantly (and, shockingly, all their stories appear to have a single-template origin). I flat out don’t believe that and I don’t think anyone else does either. Out of one side of their mouths they talk about stemming the flow and not allowing illegal immigrants in; out of the other they are cutting deals with the leaders of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras. These countries, by the way, are now calling for a mini-Marshall plan:

(Reuters) – Honduran officials on Wednesday called for U.S. aid to Central America to reduce violence that has fueled a surge of child migration to the United States, with the foreign minister calling for a “mini-Marshall plan” to attack the broader underlying problems.

Honduran President Juan Hernandez said Washington should help Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras fight gangs with a plan similar to U.S. anti-drug programs in Colombia and Mexico, as well as funds to lift growth in the impoverished region.

“One has to recognize that our countries can’t do it alone,” he said at a conference about the unaccompanied minors fleeing for the United States. “We need help from the United States, from Mexico, because this is everyone’s problem.”

Honduran Foreign Minister Mireya Aguero told the conference efforts to step up security at the U.S. border were not working and that U.S. aid would be better spent in Central America.

“It’s much more practical for the United States to launch a mini-Marshall plan, as they did after World War Two, to create opportunities and really get to the root of the problem in Central American countries that is fueling migration,” she said.

Named after top U.S. General George Marshall, the Marshall plan was a U.S. aid program to help rebuild shattered European economies after the destruction wrought by World War Two.

Simon Henshaw, the U.S. principal deputy assistant secretary of state for population, refugees and migration, said that the economic situation in Central America should be addressed with the help of international and regional development banks.

“It’s clear, however, that it requires the best efforts by all stakeholders,” said Henshaw, speaking alongside Aguero and the foreign ministers of Guatemala and El Salvador. “That means better political will from all countries.”

So, some of the security they are ranting about involves more money from the US – wealth redistribution through taxes and aid. None of this so-called aid has worked in Central and South America before. It won’t work now, unless of course you count the fact that it will definitely further bankrupt and weaken the US. Eventually, I believe, Obama will ratchet this up to the point of calling in the UN for assistance on our border, which was the plan all along. You can see the posturing has begun already:

A local U.N. official who also spoke at the conference in Honduras said that U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is “deeply concerned” about the child migrants. He urged the governments involved “to urgently protect the human rights of migrant children.”

You don’t need a crystal ball to see where this is heading folks. You really don’t. Don’t forget, Obama has his pen and phone at the ready as well:

Aides said the talks were arranged in the last 10 days, as the crisis drew international attention and protests erupted in several cities where busloads of children were arriving.

Mr. Biden traveled to Central America to meet with the three presidents in June, but officials said that Mr. Obama decided that the border issue was too complicated and too important to leave to long-distance diplomacy. The meeting in Washington, they said, was intended in part to pressure Congress to pass the funding and legal changes that the president wants.

“A big part of this is sending a message to Congress that the president is going to work with Central American countries to get something done here,” the White House official said. “Congress should take note of the fact that the president is very serious about this issue.”

Americans are not stupid. That is why there were protests in over 319 cities this weekend against a manufactured border crisis. While Obama and the leaders of these countries blame violence as the cause, it just isn’t so. These countries have always been violent. The invasion didn’t just ‘spontaneously’ occur. It has long been in the making. It is an orchestrated invasion with the goal of eradicating our borders and changing the voting demographic in conservative areas of the country. What you are seeing is a new variation on the Cloward-and-Piven gambit — overwhelm the system(s) and harvest the ensuing collapse — which, in turn, is right in line with Marx’s overthrow-of-Capitalism doctrine which advocates the use of force and subterfuge to seize all wealth, eradicate prosperity and place it in the hands of self-appointed elites, all while declaring that it’s for the “people” don’tcha know.

This is straight up radicalist doctrine and America must stop Obama from delivering the final death blows to the Republic. Impeach Obama and his cohorts, or the Republic will not survive.

The Council Has Spoken!! This Weeks’ Watcher’s Council Results – 07/18/14

The Watcher’s Council

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match-up.

This week’s winning entry, Joshuapundit’s Israel’s New Challenge: Defeating The Third Intifada is a slightly different take on the current war between Israel and Hamas, and especially that it is no accident. Here’s a slice:

Israel once again finds itself fighting in Gaza.

The reason’s fairly simple. The lust for Jewish blood among a substantial number of the Arabs who identify themselves as Palestinians is simply their strongest impulse, their raison d’être. There is no peace, because one side simply wants the other dead.

There is not a single Israeli civilian or soldier in Gaza today, not since Israel removed the 8,000 Jewish residents who had lived there over 30 years from their homes and gave it to the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians as a sacrifice ‘for peace.’

The Palestinians could have built whatever kind of society they wanted in Gaza. But even before Hamas took over, Gaza’s main export to Israel was terrorism. Israel, with Egypt’s assistance, maintained a blockade on Gaza to curtail the import of heavy weapons, usually emanating from Iran that saved Israeli lives, but cost Israel deeply when it came to the ‘international community’, who always seem to have special rules when it comes to Israel defending itself. The carnage emanating from Gaza has slowed at times, but literally thousands of rockets, mortar shells and terrorist strikes have emanated from Gaza, and they’ve never ended. Israelis became used to running for shelter, especially in the south:

This latest onslaught saw over 100 rockets in 24 hours rained down on Israel, and with Hamas rejecting offers from Israel of ‘quiet for quiet’, that’s where we stand now. The Israelis have carried out a number of decisive strikes and have called up 42,000 reserves, while Hamas has launched missiles at central Israel, at Jerusalem, and at Tel Aviv, a step they had to know was going to provoke an Israeli ground response.

So what’s the story behind the story? Why is Hamas going for broke now, and what does it mean? Whether Israel realizes it or not, they are facing the Third Intifada, although how it unfolds is still developing. Of course, it doesn’t look like previous intifadas because circumstances and tactics have changed. But the end goal is the same. And the chief strategist isn’t Hamas, but Mahmoud Abbas.

Hamas has been isolated by Israel and the new Egyptian government of al-Sisi, who has declared Hamas’ parent movement the Muslim Brotherhood an illegal terrorist organization. Weapons coming in from Iran have slowed considerably, and money is tight. A sign of this was the attempt by Hamas ally Robert Serry, the supposedly neutral UN Mideast envoy to illegally funnel $20 million to Hamas in Gaza from Qatar.

The current Hamas and Fatah unity government agreement came about, mostly on Abbas’ terms, because of Hamas’ sharply reduced fortunes, while Abbas has the UN, the Obama Administration and the EU funding and backing him, even with Hamas now on his team. According to my sources, part of the negotiations also involved joint efforts towards the goal both Hamas and Fatah agree on, the destruction of Israel.


The Israelis, already outraged at the unity agreement and the West’s apparent willingness to fund a murderous terrorist group like Hamas were further energized by the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens by Hamas operatives, whose mutilated bodies were found shoved into a hole near Hebron. In response, the Israelis began to obliterate the Hamas infrastructure in Judea and Samaria.

But then, the subsequent murder of Arab teen Mohammed Abu Kheidr by what appear to be a trio of Jewish football hooligans suddenly presented Hamas and Fatah with a golden opportunity. It was used as a signal to launch what had already been planned. Vast riots, violence and destruction took place throughout Israel egged on by Fatah while Hamas stepped up its rocket and mortar attacks.

Hamas also had plans to join Fatah in the ground attack on Israel itself. They had a huge tunnel dug from Rafah under Israel’s border fence for a massive planned assault on Israeli communities in the south, and tried an amphibious attack on Israel’s coast. Both attacks were repulsed with heavy losses. Meanwhile, Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system and the IDF’s air strikes on Hamas’ infrastructure were even more effective than Hamas had planned on and that Israel had hoped.

Israel’s ‘peace partner’ Mahmoud Abbas has also been doing his part. Fatah has several hundred militiamen in Gaza, including members of the Palestinian Authority security forces who have their salaries paid by Western governments. They have eagerly joined in firing rockets at Israel’s civilians. Abbas has done nothing to stop them.

Abbas has several huge assets his old boss Yasser Arafat could only have dreamed about, and they’re key to understanding what’s being planned. First and foremost, in Barack Hussein Obama, Abbas has a president in the White House who loathes Israel and who sees himself as Palestine’s community organizer.

More at the link about Abbas’ strategy and how Israel can defeat it.

In our non-Council category, the winner was long tome Council favorite Daniel Greenfield, AKA Sultan Knish with A Game Changer In Gaza submitted by The Independent Sentinel. Knish writes with his usual clarity and common sense about the choices Israel faces in dealing with Palestinian terrorism.

Here are this week’s full results:

Russian Intelligence Moves Back Into Cuba

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton


Russia’s President Vladimir Putin (left) hugs Cuba’s President Raul Castro after a meeting at the Revolution Palace in Havana last week.

This week, I listened to certain talk show hosts knock the Monroe Doctrine… saying that much of the trouble in South and Central America was due to our interventionism. What horsepucky. The Monroe Doctrine kept us safe and put our enemies on notice — it contained terrorists and Communists. In the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, President John F. Kennedy cited the Monroe Doctrine as a basis for America’s “eyeball-to-eyeball” confrontation with the Soviet Union that had embarked on a campaign to install ballistic missiles on Cuban soil. Obama and Kerry declaring it ‘dead’ have left us extremely vulnerable to a whole host of Communist enemies, who are now gearing up over there to spy, and at some point, almost assuredly attack us due to our weak foreign policy. Welcome to the new and horribly improved Cuban Missile Crisis redux.


Raul Castro welcomed Vladimir Putin, where they met to discuss bilateral agreements. Before that, both presidents participated together in a flower offering to the Sovietic International Soldier Mausoleum.

Russia and Cuba have signed an agreement to reopen Russia’s intelligence base in Castro’s paradise. It was one of their largest bases ever and Russia used to pay them two million a year in rent for it. Now, Russia will be listening in on the U.S. and the entire Western Hemisphere unmolested. While this rages, Obama just implemented toothless sanctions that are nothing more than smoke and mirrors in the diplomatic shuffle among dictators (but it does include gun control):

President Barack Obama slapped Russia with another batch of economic sanctions on Wednesday for its incursions into Ukraine, including new restrictions on Russian government leaders, major banks and even the maker of the iconic Kalashnikov assault rifle.

Among those sanctioned were a top Russian spymaster, a Ukrainian separatist leader, a top lawmaker and Moscow’s minister for the Crimea, which Russian troops seized in an armed incursion earlier this year. The Treasury Department also sanctioned Russian arms manufacturers, parts of energy companies and financial institutions.

“We have to see concrete actions and not just words that Russia is in fact committed to end this conflict along the Russia-Ukraine border,” Obama said in the White House press briefing room. Thus far, he continued, “Russia has failed to take any of the steps” that the Obama administration called for to de-escalate the situation in Ukraine.

Russia Today, Putin’s and the Kremlin’s propaganda outlet, giddily reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin cemented the deal to resume operations at the intelligence facility in Lourdes, Cuba, after meeting last week with Cuban President Raul Castro in Havana. For those of you unfamiliar with the Cold War that never ended:

The facility in Lourdes, a suburb of Havana located just 250km from continental USA, was opened in 1967. At the peak of the cold war it was the largest signal intelligence center Moscow operated in a foreign nation, with 3,000 personnel manning it.

From the base Russia could intercept communications in most part of the US including the classified exchanges between space facilities in Florida and American spacecraft. Raoul Castro, then-Defense Minister of Cuba, bragged in 1993 that Russia received 75 percent of signal intelligence on America through Lourdes, with was probably an overstatement, but not by a large amount.

In 2001, Russia closed down the base after the U.S. threatened to not ‘forgive’ their debts unless they did so. The economic extortion now is on the other foot and payback is a bitch and a half with inflation.

While we are being destroyed from within and without thanks to Obama, Russia has made her move to expand her influence and power in the Western Hemisphere. The Russian Bear is ravenous and we are on the menu. So much for all those who did not believe me or Trevor Loudon when we warned repeatedly on this threat for years. Russia just inked a deal to build a nuclear reactor in Argentina. The Russkies have their dirty fingerprints all over Venezuela and virtually every other country in the region. At the same time, Putin finalized a deal between Russian and Cuban energy companies and waived 90 percent of Cuba’s Soviet-era debt — about 32 billion dollars. Trade will also increase exponentially between the countries and I’ll bet it won’t be with the U.S. dollar. The two countries also signed about a dozen accords in areas such as energy, industry, health and disaster prevention, including a $1.6 billion deal on four energy-generation units between Inter RAO EES OAO (MCX:IRAO), a Russian state-controlled energy company and Union Electrica, the Cuban state power company.

Putin gave his word to Cuba that they would overcome the “illegal blockade” imposed on it by the U.S. Gee, I wonder what that meant? He added that Russia was interested in placing their global navigation satellite system, or Glonass, ground stations in Cuba. The country could then access satellite communication services in the area of the stations. Feeling warm and fuzzy yet? What you probably feel is that target on the U.S. getting larger by the minute.

Governments such as Russia, China and Iran view Latin America as a “political vacuum” in light of less U.S. engagement in the region. Obama is content to let our enemies run amok over there and put the entire nation at risk. It’s Progressive inclusion militarily and anti-colonialist in his viewpoint. I call it national suicide. It should go really well with the invasion over our Southern border. If one doesn’t do us in, the other will. Actually, both will.

From The Washington Free Beacon:

The most recent example is in Central America, where the administration and lawmakers have reduced security assistance, he said. Tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors have now fled violence in their home countries to seek asylum in the United States.

“Latin America is not even in the top 10 of issues of perceived importance by this administration, and countries like Russia, China, and even Iran are certainly exploiting those opportunities,” he said.

The State Department declined to comment on this story.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Fla.), a Cuban-American lawmaker and former chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, also expressed concerns about Putin’s actions in a statement to the Free Beacon.

“During his trip, Putin met with the Castro brothers, the worst human rights violators in our hemisphere, and forgave some of Cuba’s debt, signed a nuclear agreement with Argentina, and reaffirmed economic cooperation with Nicaragua,” she said. “Russia continues to undermine our foreign policy objectives throughout the world and its presence in our own hemisphere can destabilize the region and is meant to thumb its nose at the United States.”

If we were looking for a wild time as a nation and to die young as one, this fits the bill nicely. All the while a ruthless Putin snuggles with the murderous Castro brothers. If you actually listen to Putin’s blather, it sends a chill up your spine:

In an interview with the Cuban news agency Prensa Latina, Putin said the “Latin American nations that struggled for their independence inspire our deepest respect for their autonomy and their right to self-determination.”

“Today, cooperation with the Latin American nations is one of the key orientations and prospects of Russian foreign policy,” Putin told Prensa Latina. “Multilateralism in world affairs, respect to international law, strengthening of the central role of the U.N. and sustainable development are the principles that bring us together.”

You see, both Putin and Obama love the UN and have the same goals. Marxists of a feather… Putin slyly stated: “We are disposed to recover lost possibilities.” Yeah, I’ll bet. Meanwhile, the mainstream media fawns over the Russian emergence over here and the resurgence of Cuba, Argentina and Brazil with their Communist leaders. It’s sooo romantic, it’s to die for.

Yep, Russian intelligence is moving back into Cuba. They’ll be able to watch and hear all we do and strengthen their hold on the Western Hemisphere. Must be that flexibility that Obama alluded to.

Watcher’s Council Nominations – Hamas Delenda Est Edition

Hamas delenda est indeed.

One of the most ludicrous quotes out there about this situation came from Secretary of State John Kerry, slamming the Hamas response to the Egyptian brokered ceasefire attempt:

“I cannot condemn strongly enough the actions of Hamas in so brazenly firing rockets in multiple numbers in the face of a goodwill effort to offer a ceasefire, in which Egypt and Israel worked together, that the international community strongly supports.”

Kerry said that Hamas is “purposely playing politics” by continuing the rocket fire, using innocents as “human shields… against the laws of war.”

“And that is why they are a terrorist organization,” Kerry added.

So, why are you and President Obama still funding them, Mr. Secretary? And why do you want so badly to give a terrorist organization a state?

Environmental Justice – HHS And The EPA’s Catchall for Societal Transformation and Redistribution

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
Hat Tip: Bob Sowdon

Several days ago, I wrote an article entitled: The Office Of Refugee Resettlement – Facilitators For A ‘Manufactured Human Crisis.’ ORR is directly connected to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). HHS has become the ultimate transformational entity for the US in the Obama Administration. They are doing this under the guise of Environmental Justice.

HHS defines Environmental Justice as follows:

Environmental Justice (EJ) is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) leads the federal effort to provide an environment where all people enjoy the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards.

Sounds nice and altruistic, doesn’t it? Not so much. Environmental Justice covers just about every radical movement put forth by the Progressive/Marxist Left. Some of the areas covered under this agency are: wealth redistribution, global warming/climate change, the environment, food, transportation, income redistribution/minimum wage, tribal populations and rights, Obamacare, rural assets/Agenda 21, the emergency response system,, housing, race discrimination/civil rights, education, amnesty/illegal immigration, Alaska native and non-native Alaskan communities, diseases, disaster recovery/emergency situations, job creation and funding.

For a movement that started out as a conservation movement, it certainly has morphed into a Progressive monstrosity. Instead, what the movement is now about is redistribution of all assets such as land, wealth, income, etc. It is a Marxist enforcement agency, pure and simple.

Perhaps the most egregious and patently false facade of HHS is tracking illegal alien children and proclaiming that citizenship is a right, much as they claim food, housing and environmental justice as a whole is a human right. I seriously believe these people don’t even know what a ‘right’ is.

The foundational principles of our Constitutional Republic:

  • Our Rights are unalienable and come from God;
  • The purpose of civil government is to protect our God-given Rights;
  • Civil government is legitimate only when it operates with our consent; and
  • Since the US Constitution is the formal expression of the Will of the People, the federal government operates with our consent only when it obeys the Constitution.

Nowhere in that did it say that people are entitled to things. Progressives seem to think they can just randomly define what a right is and make it so. That’s just not so. The Constitution is the basis for our Republic. To bandy about the term ‘Human Rights’ is merely to facilitate Marxist and government control through verbiage and self-proclaimed control.

Here is the SUMMARY OF STRATEGIC ELEMENTS, GOALS, AND STRATEGIES for Environmental Justice directly from HHS – see what you make of this:

Strategic Element I: Policy Development and Dissemination

Goals

  • Strengthen the application of health and environmental statutes and policies in minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes.
  • Identify and address, as appropriate, human health or environmental effects of HHS programs, policies, and activities on minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes.
  • Support and advance a “health in all policies” approach that protects and promotes the health and well-being of minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes with disproportionately high and adverse environmental exposures.

Strategies

  • Integrate environmental justice principles and strategies into the implementation of key statutes and policies that may impact minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes.
  • Incorporate environmental justice principles and strategies into consideration of emerging issues that may disproportionately impact minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes.
  • Provide consultation and/or partner with other Federal departments, where appropriate and feasible, on environmental policies, programs and initiatives that may impact health and well-being, with particular attention to minority and low-income populations and Indian Tribes.

Strategic Element II: Education and Training

Goals

  • Educate communities, workers, the general public, health professionals, human services providers and the HHS workforce about environmental justice and environmental health to empower them to actively participate in the development and implementation of programs, policies and activities impacting and serving minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes with disproportionately high and adverse environmental exposures.
  • Build a health workforce prepared to prevent and diagnose conditions associated with disproportionately high and adverse environmental exposures and to provide high quality, culturally competent care.

Strategies

  • Educate the public, especially in communities with minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes with disproportionately high and adverse environmental exposures, about environmental justice, environmental hazards, and healthy community environments.
  • Enhance health professionals’ and human services providers’ education and training in environmental health and environmental justice.
  • Increase the knowledge and understanding of health and environmental justice across HHS agencies and among HHS employees.

Strategic Element III: Research and Data Collection, Analysis, and Utilization

Goals

  • Strengthen research and advance data collection on the health and environment of minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes.
  • Empower the public to participate in the development and implementation of HHS policies, programs, and interventions by improving access to data and research findings on the risks of adverse environmental exposures.

Strategies

  • Increase the involvement of minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes with disproportionately high and adverse environmental exposures in research and in data collection and utilization, and communicate findings to stakeholders.
  • Identify and characterize environmental and occupational factors that have disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects on minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes.
  • Bolster the efforts of HHS, state, local, territorial, and tribal agencies, as well as non-governmental organizations, to collect, maintain, and analyze data on disproportionately high and adverse environmental and occupational exposures and on health effects in minority and low-income populations and Indian Tribes.

Strategic Element IV: Services

Goals

  • Improve access to and quality of care and services for minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes with disproportionately high and adverse environmental exposures.
  • Advance the economic potential and social well-being of minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes with disproportionately high and adverse environmental exposures.

Strategies

  • Increase the capacity of health professionals delivering care and services to minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes with disproportionately high and adverse environmental exposures to prevent, diagnose, and treat medical and behavioral health conditions associated with adverse environmental exposures.
  • Identify minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes with disproportionately high and adverse environmental exposures, as well as the physical and behavioral health conditions and concerns of communities affected by these exposures.
  • Provide technical assistance and information resources to minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes with disproportionately high and adverse environmental exposures in order to empower communities to address identified health and human services needs.
  • Provide funding opportunities and technical assistance to advance the economic potential and social well-being of minority and low-income populations and Indian tribes with disproportionately high and adverse environmental exposures.

This agency is aggressively insinuating itself into every aspect of our lives in the name of helping us. Aside from lavish meetings and retreats, where these regulatory fascists get together to discuss how we can be controlled, this regulatory behemoth has trashed the Constitution and every right we have. All the while, trying to redistribute every aspect of American production and success to the less fortunate and to those who feel entitled, thus transforming the US into a third world hellhole. Which, by the way, was the point all along. Environmental Justice is the HHS and EPA’s catchall for societal transformation and redistribution.

How’s Obama’s new version of reality working out for you America? Had enough yet? To quote Sarah Palin: “The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.”

Forum: How Would You Handle The Current Crisis On The Border?

The Watcher’s Council

Every week on Monday morning, the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum with short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture or daily living. This week’s question: How Would You Handle The Current Crisis On The Border?

The Colossus of Rhodey: Since President Lemon has no compunctions about doing what HE wants when it comes to actual laws (including those involving immigration), if I was a border state governor I would do whatever it took to secure the border — including calling up National Guard troops. Does this conflict with the actual LAW? Sure. But again, the president picks and chooses laws to enforce as HE sees fit; let Rick Perry or Jan Brewer do as THEY wish and tie the matter up in court for months or even years … but at least something will have been done to secure the national border.

The time for playing around is past. If you want some sort of immigration reform, then first and foremost, SECURE THE DAMN BORDER. Otherwise, forget about any sort of “reform.” Tell the presidents of Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras that they better get their collective acts together, or it won’t just be Bill O’Reilly calling for boycotts of their countries.
But, of course, Obama won’t do any of the above. Therefore, I refer you again to my first paragraph. Challenge him, and federal government, directly and forcefully.

The Noisy Room: I agree with Mark Levin on handling the border. The children under 12 should be fed, clothed and escorted home. The others should, without further ado, be deported. The border should be closed and all funding cut off to countries South of our border, period. And the next time Mexico accidentally sends troops and bullets across our border aimed at our agents, we should call it what it is: ‘An act of war.’

Immigrants should have to follow immigration law and come in the legal way into the US. My son-in-law from Denmark did just that. It took us years to bring him over and he is an engineer and scientist. We had to vouch for him and support him economically. He also already had an American wife and children. We joke with him all the time that it would have just been easier to walk across the Southern border. But that wasn’t the right or legal thing to do for our family. It never would be.

If I had the power to do whatever it took, I would deport and escort all of the illegal aliens en masse across the border and right now. I would launch a state to state effort to round up illegal immigrants and deport them as well. ID would never be given to illegal aliens and citizenship for everyone in the US would have to be proven before employment or services were granted. I would shut down the refugee camps and start impeachment proceedings against the President and his sycophants.

I would bolster the border patrol and erect a two-layered security fence along the entire Southern border with rapid response teams on call. I would sanction deadly force when it was needed. In fact, not one person would be allowed to cross until our Marine being held in Mexico was returned. Gang bangers, rapists, kidnappers, murderers and smugglers, as well as terrorists, would not be released. They would be prosecuted and imprisoned. When needed, they would be executed. They would be held accountable for their crimes. I would employ Israeli-style profiling and the border would be locked tight except for a few entrance points. Sufficient funding would be sent to the Border Patrol to do their jobs and every agent would be heavily armed.

I believe immigration law should be reviewed and tightened. Application can be made for talented individuals who wish to come to the US that have skills and would benefit our nation. The rest could apply with general applications. These should be streamlined and not backlogged for years as has been the case. The immigration agencies should be under constant review and if they do not do their jobs in a timely manner… well, there are plenty of people looking for work.

Without a secure border, you don’t have a secure or sovereign nation. The crisis on the border is a manufactured one to transform America, shift voting demographics and eradicate our borders and sovereignty. The US should emulate Israel concerning border security and not allow Marxists to use the children as emotional extortion to advance an invasion force.

GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD: It’s simple – tho not simplistic.

First, secure the border so tight a breeze can’t blow across with out getting nailed to the floor.

Send them ALL back to the nation state of origin. Use linkage to start deporting ALL illegal immigrants. Being told it can’t be done is an insult to intelligence.

After all, if the Nazis could load up millions of people and tote them off to kill (at a time when their military really needed all those trains, troops and resources), surely America can haul off several more millions with a sack lunch for their respective mommielands.

Since there will be especial cases, especial procedures can be set up to handle them – with a 5 day limit instead of years.

Another method would be to send Spanish speaking Tea Party cats to the border and the temp storing stations to recruit ppl into the Tea Party. Issue statements about how these new folks are totally digging the Tea Party’s meme. The government would instantly stop immigration and BOTH Pelosi along with Senate Majority leader would be out on the border mixing concrete and erecting fences themselves.

JoshuaPundit: In order to really solve the problem of illegal migration, I think we have to recognize several factors.

First, the catch phrase ‘secure the border’ is easier said than done. Many Americans are not familiar with how difficult the terrain is. Some of it can be fenced off and patrolled, but much of it can’t. And if it were possible, that does nothing about the 11-12 million illegal aliens already here. It also doesn’t account for two border state governments, California and New Mexico, whom essentially wink at border enforcement for political reasons and will continue to do so, fence or no fence.

Another factor no one’s mentioning is the obvious complicity of the Mexican government and the influence of the cartels. Mexico is notoriously brutal to immigrants coming through its own southern border, yet these immigrants from Central America are being shepherded through easily.That ought to suggest something to anyone who understands what Mexico is like these days. It’s also worth considering that at present these ‘unaccompanied children’ (and many of them aren’t children) are being released to anyone who claims to be a relative. One can only speculate as to how many of these ‘relatives’ are actually gang leaders springing new recruits or pimps picking up the latest shipment of prostitutes for sex trafficking – with Uncle Sam’s help.

To change this, we are going to have to make some decisions. The first one is whether we wish to be an immigration society or a welfare state. We can’t be both.

Second, we’re going to have to decide whether we’re going to continue to wink at what is in fact an invasion. I’m not exaggerating. At present, since April, an estimated 300,000 illegal aliens have crossed our borders. By contrast, the Normandy Invasion in 1944 involved a mere 150,000 troops.

We have law on the books that dates back decades prohibiting illegals from Central America from being deported without an immigration hearing. That law has been extended by Democrats several times. If I were president, I would abolish it by executive order, which seems to be fashionable nowadays.

We are also going to have to come to terms with the fact that a substantial number of illegal aliens currently in America are going to have to be deported, and some are going to have to get green cards. We can facilitate that by requiring them to register and receive a tamper proof ID that needs to be renewed every 90 days on penalty of immediate deportation and permanent barring from the United States. Once they’re registered, they can continue to live and work in America until they are evaluated in terms of the point system and then either deported or allowed to start their citizenship waiting period from the date they receive their green cards. Chain migration for those who entered the country illegally would be prohibited. We will also need to change our laws so that it becomes far too costly for anyone to knowingly employ or rent property to an illegal alien. Or for any state governments or local jurisdictions to fail to enforce our immigration laws or cooperate with ICE.

Likewise, we need to abolish our entire byzantine immigration law structure in favor of a points system that changes as America’s requirements change, similar to what Australia and Canada have . It would apply equally to everyone. No more country quotas or diversity lotteries. We would only take in as many immigrants as we require with skills we need, and vet who comes in based on skills, education, ability to speak English, lack of a criminal record, ties to America, lack of disease and lack ties to terrorism or politically questionable groups. A certain fixed amount of exceptions could be given extra points if they have a member of their immediate family or an employer willing to be a guarantor that the immigrant in question would not become a public charge.

Much of that used to be the criterion at Ellis Island.

To deal with the current influx, we are going to we need to essentially need to recreate Manzanar and similar facilities near the border so the illegals whom are here can be processed as quickly as possible for deportation. At present, they are deliberately being scattered around the country to make them more difficult to find and deport.

None of this will be quick or easy , and it will be messy. But that’s what it’s going to take.

The Glittering Eye: I’ve already given my prescription several times over at my place but I’ll repeat it here. First, we need to set up facilities near the border adequate to handle the inflow of unaccompanied minors. They need to be clothed, housed, receive food and medical attention, as appropriate. Concurrently, the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act should be narrowed to address only the cases it was intended to address and no more or repealed entirely. Existing law must not require a status hearing for these unaccompanied minors.

The third prong of my proposal would be bilateral negotiations with Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and other countries as necessary to stem the flow. Bilateral, i.e. individually with each country not multilateral. Mexico should be blocking free passage and these kids should be repatriated immediately. We should pay their countries of origin if necessary to maintain them.

We’re already doing that but we need to increase those efforts. IIRC only about 20% of the funds President Obama has asked of Congress was for that purpose. Most was for bureaucracy expansion.

What we’re doing now is no more responsible than putting these kids on top of railroad cars headed north.

Ask Marion: As ‘The Great One’, Mark Levin said the other night on Hannity, and as most people who understand what is really going on at our Southern Border have said: “(1) Deport… Send Them Back Immediately (2) Secure the Border and (3) Don’t Give Money or Aid to Any Countries Who Export Their People into Ours illegally… or to Mexico Who is Facilitating This Illegal Onslaught (They Certainly Aren’t Keeping These People in Mexico, Because They Have One of the Strictest Immigration and anti-Illegal Immigration Policies in the World!).”

If I were Queen, instead of Obama being King… ;-) The National Guard and militia volunteers would be lined up on the border, armed to the teeth, and everyone would be turned back immediately.

Option 1:

Fill the buses up with gas, give everyone a sack lunch and some water, arrest the obvious coyotes and facilitators, and send the illegal immigrants back immediately!

Option 2:

Have planes ready and escort the buses directly to an isolated takeoff and landing strip. Move everyone from the busses to the airplanes, fly them immediately back with a nurse and facilitators on-board and reunite them with their families in the countries they came from. If they have families here who came legally, the so-called refugees can go through the legal channels. If they have families in the U.S. who are here illegally, send those families back to the county of their origin as well.

For 8 million dollars America could send every illegal alien back… they could be flown home and reunited with their families in their countries of origin. And according to Governor Rick Perry of Texas, only 100 million dollars of the $3.7 billion President Obama (who refuses to visit the border but has plenty of time to play pool, attend fundraiser in Texas and Colorado, eat Texas BBQ… and yes, wait for it… go on his regular family vacation to Martha’s vineyard) is asking Congress for will go to border security. So it would not secure the border or solve the problem. Leaving the big question: “Exactly why and for what is Obama asking Congress for $3.7 billion dollars… what does he plan to do with it?” We are obviously being had again!! Luckily for now, Congress has not authorized the Obama’s request.

Congress should authorize the $8 to $10 million or send everyone back… period, along with a specific plan. And in a separate bill, with a delineated plan, the money should be authorized to secure the border, and the entire process needs to be published, supervised and reported on daily by the media for the public to watch (on C-SPAN, Fox as well as the MSM).

Because of this manufactured crisis, we have gang members coming in, people with diseases that we have eradicated are coming in; people are flying on the airlines all of the U.S. without ID; illegals are traveling all over the country freely once they have their court date; people who should never have crossed into the country are complaining that they aren’t being treated well enough… and getting media coverage; and in some facilities it looks more like Summer Camp than a holding facility or a refugee camp (if you buy the refugee angle). And the illegal drug, arms and sex trade is flourishing right now because our border agents are overwhelmed babysitting and changing diapers.

We really will be remembered as the stupidest people who ever lived if we allow this influx to continue and the rest of the world is either laughing at us or crying at the final decline of what many had hoped would beat the 200-year (nation and empire) decline cycle and continue to be the beacon of hope for world.

It is time to decide if are are still a sovereign country of if we have already rolled over and become victims of the ruling elites’ plan for a New World Economic Order (NWO) that they will control. And if the decision is that we are still a country, it is time for people all over the the United States to get involved like the patriots in Murrieta, CA, like the militias who have headed to Texas and like Governor Sarah Palin who called for President Obama’s Impeachment. As Donald Trump recently said, “We have to decide… We either are a country or we aren’t!” And if we don’t have a border, we aren’t!! In a shocking poll: 73% of Americans now support the impeachment of President Obama NOW and 14% more at some point. So what are we waiting for?

Well, there you have it.
