File this one under, are you serious!
US federal officials plan on creating a self serve border crossing between the US and Mexico. That is correct, an unmanned border crossing with Mexico. It is supposed to improve security, because agents will be monitoring things from 100 miles away. Who’s brilliant idea was this? The United States already has a problem with Mexicans illegally crossing into America so now we are going to create an EZ Pass for them to do so. Oh but wait, we will monitor it from 100′s of miles away so when we see something go wrong, what will be the response time?
This hardly seems a time the U.S. would be willing to allow people to cross the border legally from Mexico without a customs officer in sight. But in this rugged, remote West Texas terrain where wading across the shallow Rio Grande undetected is all too easy, federal authorities are touting a proposal to open an unmanned port of entry as a security upgrade.
By the spring, kiosks could open up in Big Bend National Park allowing people from the tiny Mexican town of Boquillas del Carmen to scan their identity documents and talk to a customs officer in another location, at least 100 miles away.
The crossing, which would be the nation’s first such port of entry with Mexico, has sparked opposition from some who see it as counterintuitive in these days of heightened border security.
Good grief, why don’t we just give them free “Fast & Furious” guns too while they cross through the self-serve kiosk? As the Lonely Conservative opines, what could possibly go wrong? What other moronic ideas could possibly come from the Obama administration?
The Middle East is in crisis, turmoil and unrest beginning in Saudi Arabia as theymobilize troops to quell a revolt, Muammar el-Qaddafi Qaddafi Libyan situation spiraling out of control, gas prices are headed toward $4.00 a gallon, US federal debt is out of control, we have no coherent energy policy except to prevent energy production, the murders in Mexico spiral out of control on our southern open border, and state after state in the United States is on the verge of financial ruin … So what does President Barack Obama do … The One goes golfing.
In a sign that spring is nearing in Washington, President Obama hit the golf course Saturday …
A 10-vehicle motocade took Obama to the Andrews Air Force Base golf course …
His golfing partners Saturday are accustomed to hitting the links with the president: press staffer Ben Finkenbinder, trip director Marvin Nicholson and Department of Energy staffer David Katz.
GOOD GRIEF.I wonder how much tax payer dollars the 10 vehicle motorcade ate up in gas for The One’s trip to play golf? Are not there more important and critical things that this this President needs to be doing?
Priceless, Napolitano Visits Afghanistan to Discuss Afghan Border Security, but Back Home Refuses to Secure USA – Mexico Border
File this one under, you have got to be “friggin” kidding me …
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano visits Afghanistan in an attempt to find new ways to establish a border security and customs system to counter terrorism while allowing legitimate travel and trade. WHAT!!! This from the same person who refuses to secure the US – Mexican border? Are you joking, this is like a bad SNL skit.
I will secure the Afghan border just like I have done with the US-Mexican one
Question, what will Napolitano call the terrorist that sneak across the Afghan-Pakistan border … undocumented Jihadists? How can any one take this serious? Napolitano and her cronies are supposed to affect Afghan border security when right under her very nose in the United States she has failed miderably to secure let alone address the issue of the border. Just ask the family of deceased border agent Brian Terry whether Napolitano is doing a good job at securing the border? We have an Obama Administration that is more concerned with going after Arizona and their efforts to protect their citizens than they do securing the border. Now they are going to show their expertise in Afghanistan. I feel confident. Unconfirmed reports states that terrorist in Pakistan were wetting them self with laughter.
Six Department of Homeland Security (DHS) customs and border security officials will accompany Napolitano on the weeklong trip, which will include stops in Qatar, Israel and Belgium.
Napolitano spent Friday morning touring Afghanistan’s Torkham Border Crossing with Pakistan and meeting with Afghan an U.S. border security and customs officials to find new ways to establish a border-security and customs system to counter terrorism while allowing legitimate travel and trade.
Napolitano tells family of critical and grieving fallen border agent that Obama’s done more in two years than any president.
Home Land Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was not a happy camper when she and President Obama were criticized by the Terry Family who lost their son during a shootout near the Arizona border this week. The arrogance of the Obama administration is sickening. They actually believe that they do not have to answer to the families of fallen heroes.
Yet another cluless, over their head Obama Admin
The must see VIDEO of the grieving Terry Family giving the Obama Administration an earful.
Janet Napolitano thought she was going to just walk into a funeral for a fallen hero and not have to take flack for the lack of any border security policy on the Mexican border. The grieving family said that Napolitano’s words were empty. The Terry family told Napolitano to, “wake your man up in the White House”, to which she responded back to the family of a fallen border security hero, that Obama’s done more in two years than any president. What class.
How arrogant are these folks, Napolitano chided reporters for reporting the news.
Missing & Murdered David Hartley: Lead Mexican Investigator of Falcon Lake Case Rolando Armando Flores Villegas Beheaded
If you thought that the case of missing and presumed murder of American tourist David Hartley could not get any more strange and bizarre, you were wrong. UNREAL!
The lead Mexican investigator of the“missing & murdered” David Hartley case, Rolando Armando Flores Villegas, was beheaded. The Mexican investigators severed head was delivered in a suitcase to the military. It is confirmed, the drug cartels have drawn a line in the sand … leave the area, do not investigate, or die.
Think this is not a message from the drug cartels to the Mexican authorities to cease and desist? Obviously the Zeta drug cartel does not want any one investigating or snooping around in this area as they have sent a clear and present message.
The area is known to be under control of the Zeta drug cartel, which fiercely protects the sparsely populated ranchland lining the border, as well as the Mexican side of the vast Falcon Lake reservoir.
Young said the family felt the cartels were trying to scare search teams away.
“I just think they’re trying to send a statement that they don’t want us there,” she said. “We haven’t really processed what it means.
Welcome to how things are done in Mexico, ala drug cartel style … who does not want border security again? So you think the violence is overblown on the border and there are no issues. You think that America-Mexico has the movement of drugs handled that are passed into the US? Who is in charge in Mexico? Then again, if one questions these Mexican barbarians and want to protect American citizens, you are called a racist. There is a larger issue here than just a case of a the murder of an American citizen, as if that is not bad enough.
The lead Mexican investigator in the Falcon Lake case, Rolando Armando Flores Villegas, has been killed, his severed head delivered Tuesday in a suitcase to the Mexican military, officials told CNN.
“His head was delivered to the army garrison this morning in a suitcase after he failed to report back home last night,” Zapata County, Texas, Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez Jr. said.
A spokesman for the attorney general of Tamaulipas state in Mexico, Ruben Dario-Rios, confirmed the killing Tuesday afternoon in a telephone interview.
The report came a day after authorities in the Tamaulipas state attorney general’s office gave conflicting information on whether authorities were pursuing a pair of suspects in the case of David Michael Hartley’s disappearance.
Mexican authorities had previously released the names of two suspects in the death and disappearance of David Hartley.
Mexican Police have Identified Two Suspects (Juan Pedro Saldivar-Farias & Jose Manuel Saldivar-Farias) in Shooting Death of David Hartley on Falcon Lake
Two “persons of interest” named …
Mexican police have identified two individuals as “persons of interest”in the shooting death of American tourist David Hartley on the US-Mexico border Falcon Lake. The two individuals names suspected in the murder of David Hartly are Juan Pedro Saldivar-Farias, known as “El 27″, and Jose Manuel Saldivar-Farias, , known as “El31″. However, police have not released a photo of the two suspects.
State police Commander Juan Carlos Ballasteros stated that the two men are from New Guerrero, Mexico, close to the abandoned town of Old Guerrero where David and Tiffany Hartley were reportedly attack by Mexican pirates.
Tamaulipas State Police Commander Juan Carlos Ballesteros told El Universal newspaper on Saturday that authorities believe Juan Pedro Saldivar-Farias and Jose Manuel Saldivar-Farias killed Hartley.
Ballesteros told the paper that the two men are accused in numerous crimes in Mexico, including burning homes, robbing businesses and several homicides.
If there is no body, is there no crime … Sound Familiar?
This area of the US-Mexican border hardly seems like a safe vacation spot that would be endorsed by travel agents as it was reported that Mexican soldiers reportedly killed six gunmen Thursday afternoon, in the same area where Hartley went missing.
One question that comes to mind in the naming of these people of interest, what is the rational behind it? Is this the rounding up of the usual suspects in Mexico or do authorities have sunstantial facts as to why to point the finger at these two?
US/Mexico: The Search for Missing & Murdered David Hartley Continues on Falcon Lake … Friends & Family Protest at Mexican Consulate in Colorado
There are questions abound and rightfully so in this case; however, what no one can question is the violence on the US-Mexican border. Did it come as a surprise to Americans that there were Mexican pirates operating so close to the US border? Not Somalian pirates, Mexican ones.
The search continues in the United States-Mexico border lake for missing and presumed murdered David Hartley. However, to date there has been no body found. Searches continue, even though there were threats of an ambush from drug gangs temporarily thwarted efforts.
The story is bizarre to say the least. The wife’s story had initially been questioned by Mexican authorities. That’s is a dicey comment to state publicly, no matter if authorities believe it to be true or not with Tiffany’s story. Remember, this is Mexico, where police corruption and drug cartels rule the day.
But on Monday, a Mexican official seemed to question whether the attack took place at all.
In a statement, Marco Antonio Guerrero Carrizales, district attorney for the Miguel Aleman Province, writes, “We are not sure. We are not certain that the incident happened the way they are telling us.”
CBS News correspondent Don Teague reports that family members have countered by criticizing what they see as a lackluster search effort by Mexican authorities.
Let’s keep in mind that this area is prone to violence. There had been previous attacks and people were warned about the area. Personally, I would go no where near Mexico or have my family members there, but that’s me. Please try to not compare Mexico is the US and how things are done. Mexico is not only a completely different country, its a completely different world.
However, there is a witness and blood evidence that was discovered to support. Zapata County’s sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez stated that he has blood evidence from the life vest of Tiffany Hartley, the wife of David Hartley, that supports her story. But does it really? All it supports is that David Hartley is dead. I would like to think we as a society have not become so jaded that we dismiss the words of the wife over that of Mexican authorities. However, that is not to say we do not have the right to speculate and question if the story does not add up, like in the case of murdered honeymooner George Smith.
Round 2 Meg Whitman’s Maid Nicky Diaz: Greta Van Sustren Owns Gloria Gloria Allred: “You Know What Gloria … If You Can’t Protect the Client You Shouldn’t Do the Job”
Gloria Allred threw client to the wolves and exposed her to deportation for $6200 and to affect an election … GUILTY!
The Gloria Allred political hatchet job in the Whitman/Brown California Governors race. Never was it more obvious what Gloria Allred’s intentions were than after listening to the interview with Greta Van Susteren last nigh on Fox. What a sad state of affairs when a leftist political hack attorney can use a client like an illegal immigrant like Nicandra “Nicky” Diaz and sacrifice her to the wolves, expose her to possible deportation, all in the name of swinging a political election. Nice ethics Gloria.
Round II: Greta van Susteren last night scored a knock out in the political/legal boxing match with uber-Lib attorney Gloria Allred. Actually, the referee should have stepped in and stopped the match as Greta owned Allred who was “Alldone” the minute the interview started.
Greta: I think she would have been a lot smarter to talk to a lawyer who worried more about her liberty whether she be deported than whether she make a public statement
Greta: First thing a job a lawyer to do is to protect the client, not throw the client out to the wolves. If you can’t protect the client you shouldn’t do the job”
Gloria had no answers for Greta, except that her client was intelligent. Hmm, I do not remember that question being asked in the smackdown.
Video Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
I think she would have been a lot smarter to talk to a lawyer who worried about whether she would be deported than some sort of public statement on someone running for office… You know what Gloria? The first thing for a lawyer to do is to protect the client not throw the client out to the wolves. If you can’t protect the client you shouldn’t do the job… You can’t just keep making this stuff up.”
Gloria Allred was found guilty on all charges of drumming this up to affect an ellection and putting her client at risk when she said the following, she (Nicky) wanted to people know how she was treated when she was a maid for Meg Whitman. Really Gloria? You mean the mistreatment of being paid $23 an hr as a maid? Oh the pain. Of course the other question is, how is one mistreated when they broke the laws of the United States and entered the country illegally, they then used a phony social security number and then kmnowing lied on work applications. Who is the victim here?
Nicky Diaz lied and violated the law and now she is claiming damages, priceless. However, when Greta states, “she lied and violated the law, maybe she is not the ideal spokesperson for this issue”, the response from Allred was telling and she was found wanting of being a political hack. Allred’s response had nothing to do with her client, instead she said the following, “well maybe Meg Whitman is not the ideal person for governor.” UNREAL.
Goria Allred should be brought up on ethics charges in fron of the California bar for this. Then again, a lot that useless organization would do. it makes one wonder, who is paying Gloria Allred in this unethical hatchet job and is Nicky being paid to do this. Who in their right mind would expose themselves to this potential legal harm and deportation for $6200 and the right to speek her mind.
The Liberal Left MSM Race-Baiters Just Cant Help Themself … Cynthia Tucker, “Voter Anger is About Racism, Fear of a White Minority”
Welcome to racial tolerance in the Barack Obama Presidency … How many times will the LEFT play the same, tired race card? Desperate acts from a desperate party who have nothing else than to call Americans racists.
So many people thought that by electing the first black President of the United States, race relations would move in the right directions. Not when you have the liberal MSM race-baitors throwing gas on the fire at every opportunity. Shame on these people for creating further friction and a racial divide in the United States.
Cynthia Tucker on The Chris Matthews Show stated that it was racism that threatened the Democrat majority in the House and the Senate. Unreal. This is the type of rhetoric that the LEFT uses when Americans reject their socialist failing agenda.
“We haven’t talked about the elephant in the room, and I don’t mean the Republicans: race. Changing demographics. Fear of a white minority.”
Face it America, the moonbat LEFT thinks you are a racist if you are against President Barack Hussein Obama’s extreme socialist policies. You are a racist if you are against fiscal responsibility. You are a racist if you are against Obamacare and the government take over of health care from crib to coffin. You are a racist if you are against the rule of law, protecting our borders and illegal immigration. You are a racist if you are for the compassion of 9-11 families, the questioning of wherehundreds of millions of dollars are coming from and the building of a mosque mere blocks from where nearly 3000 innocent people lost their lives.
Voter Anger Is About Racism – ‘Fear of a White Minority’
Transcript from NewsBusters:
CYNTHIA TUCKER, ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION: Well I think it may help the Democrats in some races this time, Chris, because some of the Tea Party candidates are so extreme. But there is another issue. There is, as Norah said, a whole lot of voter anger, discontent out there. We haven’t talked about the elephant in the room, and I don’t mean the Republicans: race. Changing demographics. Fear of a white minority.
CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: That’s so interesting.
TUCKER: Obama’s election has suddenly made many white Americans aware of the loss of a white majority.
MATTHEWS: That’s so interesting.
TUCKER: That’s what this crazy summer has been all about. Anti-mosque construction. Anti-immigrant ravings. It, that fear is very difficult for Obama to overcome.
Ms Tucker, was it not ‘white” America who elected Barack Obama and the Democrats? According to CNN 2008 Presidential election polls 43% of whites voted for Barack Obama as opposed to the 41% of whites who voted for Democrat John Kerry in 2004. Better yet, following Obama’s election all polls showed that his popularity was through the roof. Rasmussen had Obama job approval the day “The One” took office on January 20, 2009 at 67% and a +25 Presidential Index rating. Gallup had Obama at 68% – 21% job approval on January 21, 2009.
But some how in 19 short months white America became racist. That’s it, you brilliant race baiter on the LEFT. The fact that Democrats are scrambling for their political lives could not be because President Obama promised that his $787 billion stimulus package would hold unemployment at 8% and we are presently at 9.6% and rising, while underemployment is at 18.6%?It couldn’t be that Obama and the Democrats focused on Obamacare and the government take over of health care in the US for months and montHs against the will of the people? Instead of focusing on creating a positive job environment for business, Democrats rammed Obama care down the throats of Americans. To the point where a 58% to 36% margin are in favor of repealing Obamacare.
Americans saw a lack of urgency and leadership from Obama in handling the BP oil spill. So much so that Americans actually view former President GWB as doing a better job with Hurricane Katrina than Obama did in handling the aftermath of the oil spill in the Gulf.
Racism is not the root cause as to what has caused the Democrats plight and their fear of losing both the House and Senate in 2010 and the Presidency in 2012. Americans have discovered what the real meaning of Obama’s “Hope & Change” is and they do not like it. On every major issue of the day, Obama and Democrats have taken the side against the majority of the American people. What did they think was going to happen?
However, for race-baiting and desperate liberals all they have left on the LEFT is to call you racists. Hardly a winning strategy. Get ready for the new bumper stickers … “YOU ARE RACIST UNLESS YOU SUPPORT OBAMA”
11ho is the party of Extreme?
Democrats have called Republicans, the party of no. However, the reason why the GOP says “NO” is because the Democrats have become so extreme and going against the will of the American people on ever issue … being the party of No, is being the party of, by and for ‘We the People”.
Watch this very powerful video … the midterm elections are right around the corner, make your voice be heard!
Hat Tip: NRO
As Hot Air states, the Dems will find issue with the fact that Rasmussen is used in their ad, let the whining begin. Of course they forget the little fact that Rasmussen has been the most accurate pollster in the business and even called Obama’s victory over McCain.
Do note that there’s lots of Rasmussen sourcing here, which will lead to plenty of screeching about supposedly tilted numbers from the usual suspects tomorrow. Oh well.
