More from the worst American President in modern times … He truly is an “Abomination”.
Today Barack Hussein Obama blames the gun violence in Mexico on the United States, while in Mexico pandering to the Mexicans. UNREAL. Obama stated, “Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States.” Gee Mr. President go you mean like your programs like “Fast & Furious”? After all Mr. President, who was it that was running guns to Mexican drug cartels that resulted in the death of American border guards and the deaths of many innocent Mexicans? Oh that’s right, it was you and Eric Holder.
When will this president stop apologizing for America and blaming it for all of the evils of the world? At some point one has to wonder whether Obama even likes America. At the UK Telegraph they ask, Will Barack Obama ever stop apologizing for America? Because the violence in Mexico could have nothing to do with the drug cartels and a corrupt government, right?
Barack Obama, the Apologist in Chief
Is there no end to the apologies that President Obama has made for his own country? Instead of blaming America, Obama should have called on the Mexican government to do far more to deal with the drug gangs and the rampant lawlessness, which is spilling over the border into the United States. Why not praise the courageous work of US law enforcement agents fighting bravely against Mexican drug cartels?
“Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States,” President Obama said during a speech at Mexico’s Anthropology Museum. “I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will.”
“But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do,” Obama added.
Unreal … Two Border Patrol Agents Convicted Friday in Federal Court in Tucson, AZ of Violating the Civil Rights of 4 Mexican Drug Smugglers
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … WHAT HAPPENED TO THE AMERICA I GRE UP IN?
As reported at the Arizona Daily Star, two border agents were convicted on Friday by a jury in Federal court in Tucson, AZ of violating the civil rights of four drug smugglers. Yes, you heard that correct. Let me repeat this, two border agents were convicted of violating the civil rights of four Mexican drug smugglers. WTF is going on in this country!!! Seriously, the US government fails to protect the borders from illegal immigrants and drug smugglers from entering into our country, but we prosecute the very agents who do? We are not allowed to call these people illegals, but we allow Mexican drug smugglers to have civil rights. Not only are they in the United States illegally, they are in it with illegal drugs with the intention of selling such illegal substances. But they got civil rights. Unreal.
25 year old Dario Castillo and 31 year old Ramon Zuniga were convicted on four counts of “civil-rights deprivation under color of law”. Here is a rather interesting part od the case and prosecution, even though there were more agents at the scene, only Zuniga and Castillo committed the civil-rights violations. Hmm? Does anyone else just find this all a bit whacked, seeing that we have a federal policy of not going after illegals and a push to not even call them illegals? So what would these folks have been considered … undocumented, not legal substance carrying, lost in the desert individuals?
After deliberating most of the morning, about 3 p.m. the jury convicted Dario Castillo, 25, and Ramon Zuniga, 31, of four counts of civil-rights deprivation under color of law. Rather than arrest four Mexican smugglers intercepted the night of Nov. 12, 2008, the agents made them strip off their socks, shoes and jackets, forced some of them to eat marijuana and ordered them to flee into the desert.
The convictions are misdemeanors for Zuniga, but felonies for Castillo because the jury found he set fire to the smugglers’ belongings.
The agents were found not guilty of a conspiracy charge.
Castillo was also found not guilty of tampering with a witness, the most serious charge.
A felony conviction for deprivation of rights under color of law carries a maximum penalty of 10 years and/or a $250,000 fine; a misdemeanor conviction under the statute carries a penalty of one year and/or a $100,000 fine.
U.S. Attorney for Arizona John Leonardo said in a written statement,”This verdict sends a clear message that abuse of authority by federal law enforcement officers will not be tolerated in our society.” Really, I take it in another way. No one believes in civil rights for Americans more than I; however, I in no way believe they should be afforded to people in my country illegally and committing crimes. Who finds this a bit offensive when we have a U.S. government, Republican, Democrat & Independent alike, who every day try to strip away out US Constitutional and Civil rights, yet Mexican drug smugglers are protected? Our government is trying to strip away our Second Amendment right to bare arms, yet these people have a right to be in our country illegally with illegal drugs and have civil rights. What has happened to the America I grew up in?
Look for the
Union Mexico label …
From CNS News comes the following bad joke, the border patrol agents that prevent Mexicans from coming into the United States are made in, wait for it, wait for it … MEXICO. You just can’t make this stuff up.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has granted uniform contracts to VF Imagewear, Inc., an apparel company that relies on manufacturing sites in Mexico for a “significant percentage” of its occupational garments.
The latest contract with the company was awarded on Dec. 20, 2012, to make “uniform and insignia items” for the CBP at an estimated cost of $6,157,997.57, and a ceiling of $8 million.
The CBP, which is responsible for protecting America’s borders, told CNSNews.com that items from VF Imagewear, a subsidiary of VF Corporation, are manufactured in a number of locations, “including Mexico.”
International Diplomacy … Massive Brawl Breaks Out During World Baseball Classic Between Canada and Mexico
International Base Brawl …
So much for these games don’t matter as a brawl broke out during the World Baseball Classic between Canada and Mexico. Hardly two teams one would think would get into a bench clearing brawl, but the game got a bit chippy. There is nothing like a bunt single in the 9th inning when you are up by 6 to get the Latin American blood boiling. The result, a subsequent throwing at a batter and a bench clearing melee. How many GM’s and MLB owners must have had their hearts in their mouth when they saw this happened fearing an injury of one of their key players or superstars. If more of this happens, look for MLB to restrict players from taking part in the World Baseball Classic.
The seven ejected players … Team Mexico’s Arnold Leon, Oliver Perez, Eduardo Arredondo, Andrew Albers and Alfredo Aceves and Canada’s Pete Orr, Rene Tosoni and Jay Johnson. The players will not face discipline beyond the ejections, according to a statement released by the World Baseball Classic, Inc.
From the Yard Barker:
In a chippy game that had previously involved a late takeout slide and a collision at home plate, Canadian Chris Robinson bunted to lead off the ninth inning with Canada holding a 9-3 lead. Mexico pitcher Arnold Leon responded by throwing at Rene Tosoni and missing as both teams were warned by the umpire. Then, Leon hit Tosoni on the next pitch and the benches emptied.
Red Sox pitcher Alfredo Aceves was heavily involved in the fray, seen wrestling with Tyson Gillies and appearing to suffer a blow to the head. Aceves’ Red Sox teammates were reported to have cheered at the sight of their pitcher fighting.
BABIES HAVING BABIES …
OMG, a 9 year old girl gives birth to a baby girl. Alternate title: Baby girl gives birth to baby girl. The girl gave birth in western Mexico in the city of Guadalajara. According to reports, the father is the 9 year old’s 17 year old boyfriend. Authorities say that if the teenage father’s paternity is proven he could face child sex abuse charges. COULD!!! A 9 year old is having a baby by a 17 year old and charges might be pending. UNREAL. HOW DOES A 9 YEAR OLD GIVE CONCENT TO ANYTHING!!!
Mexican authorities say a 9-year-old girl has given birth in western Mexico and they are looking for the purported father, a 17-year-old.
Jalisco state police spokesman Lino Gonzalez says the baby girl was born last week at a hospital in the city of Guadalajara. He says the girl and her baby are doing well.
Gonzalez said Wednesday that the girl’s family alerted authorities after she gave birth and the alleged father has not been seen since in the neighborhood the both live in. He says that if the teenager’s paternity is proven he could face child sex abuse charges.
This is Still America, Right? Students Told to Stop ‘USA!’ Chant, Take Off American Flag Bandanas in California
Is California still a part of the United States of America?
So now its racists to chant “USA” in the United States? America, you best pay attention because you are losing your country. Students at Camarillo High School in California school were told to stop chanting “USA … USA … USA” and to take off their American flag bandanas during a basketball game. Although their punishment has since been rescinded, school administrators said “the incident is far from over.” School officials are going to investigate as to whether the “USA” chant was racially motivated and had racist overtones. Yup, that’s what this country has come to. Let’s go after the students for hate crimes for chanting “USA”. Does anyone really think that if kids whore Mexican flag clothing or chanted “Mexico” that this would have even been an issue. Instead, we have school officials that are worried whether some one was offended. For the Love of God … everyone is offended about something!
Four California high-school students were reportedly suspended for chanting “U.S.A! U.S.A!” and wearing American flag bandanas during a basketball game. While their punishment has since been rescinded, school administrators said “the incident is far from over.”
Oxnard Union School District superintendent Gabe Soumakian told Fox News Radio that “we need to pursue this further” and “work with teachers and students and the community about the concept of cultural proficiency.” Soumakian and Camarillo High School principal Glenn Lipman felt that the students’ actions might have had racist undertones since the schools have large Hispanic student populations.
POWERLINE asks an important question that needs to be answered … “Are Hispanic-Americans offended by chants of USA?” Just curious, have these folks actually taken the “oath of allegiance to the USA, see below.
But wait! What reason is there to suppose that Hispanics take offense at shows of American patriotism? Do they harbor hostility towards the United States? I wouldn’t have thought so, but then I’m not on the ground in Oxnard, California.
I hope Soumakian and his crew get to the bottom of this quickly. I wouldn’t want Congress to provide a path to citizenship for millions of illegal Hispanic immigrants if they, and maybe even some of their legal counterparts, can be presumed offended by standard expressions of American patriotism.
The United States Oath of Allegiance (officially referred to as the “Oath of Allegiance,” 8 C.F.R. Part 337 (2008)) is an oath that must be taken by all immigrants who wish to become United States citizens.
I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.
Remember when it was racists as well for the chants of USA here as well … Alamo Heights Defeat San Antonio Edison in Basketball …Chanting USA, USA, USA is Now Considered Racist in the America … What Has Happen to Our Country?
Jon Hammar will be home for Christmas …
Former US Marine Jon Hammar has finally been released from a Mexican prison after spending four months being held on trumped up charges. A defense lawyer said Mexican authorities determined there was no intent to commit a crime. Gee, ya think? Thanks to some in the media, like Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, for making this disgraceful and shameful false imprisonment front and center to guilting Obama, the State Department and Mexico to release Jon Hammer. Isn’t it amazing how Mexican authorities arrest individuals who do not even really commit a crime, yet the US just looks the other way when it comes to Mexicans who illegally enter the US, gun or no gun.
I’ll Be Home for Christmas – Bing Crosby
The ordeal for Jon Hammar Jr., who languished under deplorable conditions in a violent Mexican prison for four months, is finally over.
Jon Hammar Sr. has confirmed that his 27-year-old son, a Marine combat veteran, is back on U.S. soil and with him in a rented car in Brownsville, Texas.
Hammar Sr. said his son was released from the notorious CEDES prison at 8 p.m. local time and made it back across the bridge between Matamoros, Mexico and Brownsville, Texas by around 8:30 p.m.
Thank God he is home.
US Rep. Duncan (CA-R) Hunter Calls for Americans to Boycott Mexico Until they Releases former Marine Jon Hammar from Prison
US Representative Duncan Hunter (CA-R) stated that Americans should boycott Mexico until they release former Marine Jon Hammar from prison. Hammar is being held in a Mexican prison, handcuffed to his bed (Pic), on trumped up charges that he brought a gun into the country, even though he had registered it prior to entry. Hammar, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, has been jailed in Mexico for more than four months for the alleged crime was carrying an antique firearm that belonged to his grandfather into the country. WTF. Hammar faces up to 15 years in prison if he’s convicted on the gun charges. Where is the US State Department? Where is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton? Where is President Barack Obama? When the White House was asked about this well publicized story, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney had a surprising answer: “I don’t know the facts myself on that.”
FOX News – Megyn Kelly
Rep. Duncan Hunter, a California Republican and Marine combat veteran, called on Americans Thursday to boycott Mexico until that nation releases Jon Hammar, a former U.S. marine, from prison.
Mr. Hunter also said he is prepared to go to Mexico personally to demand Mr. Hammar’s release.
Mexican authorities are holding Mr. Hammer on weapons charges after he carried his grandfather’s antique shotgun across the border into Mexico in August.

President Obama comes to the aid of Sandra Fluke after she is called anout by a radio host but Obama is no where to be found when a former US Marine is chained to a bed in a prison. Obama has not even called the parents of Jon Hammar.

Unbelievable, Ever Wonder Why Health Care Costs are Out of Control in US … Illegal Immigrant Gets Kidney
Unbelievable … this crap just does not end. What part about “ILLEGAL” does no one understand?
As those who are in the United States wait for their kidney transplants, Jorge Mariscal, an illegal immigrant is provided one ahead of legal tax paying US citizens. It appears that we now exist in a world with out borders and laws. Mariscal believes health care should be a human right, not a privilege. Thats interesting, I believe breaking the law should be a crime, not rewarded. However, just because the illegal has received a kidney, he is not out of the woods yet. Loyola agreed to cover the costs of the transplant, Mariscal will have to pay for the medicine. Please, I am sure Obamacare covers illegals as it takes health care services away from those who are actually in the country legally. Just a note to Jorge, rather then thinking you have a right and are entitled to a kidney, you should be pretty damn grateful instead.
As an illegal immigrant, Jorge Mariscal waited eight years for a kidney transplant he feared would never come.
His persistence paid off Thursday when he underwent the procedure at Loyola University Medical Center.
After years of uncertainties, Mariscal said he’s excited about his future and grateful for the help he received. But he remains frustrated with a health care system that he worries might leave out an untold number of illegal immigrants in need of lifesaving treatments.
“Why can’t we be treated the same?” he asked while sitting in his hospital room. “Health care should be a human right, not a privilege. At least give us the chance to fight for our lives with dignity.”
So this guy wants to be treated the same, huh? You know how you so that Jorge? Go back yo where ever you came from and apply for citizenship. If you wanted to be treated the same, you must be the same as the rest of us. Your problem is you wanted preferential and special treatment. This is just unreal. They know this guy is an illegal and he just gets to stay and be a burden on the tax payers. WTF!
Now that his surgery is behind him, he said he’s happy he stayed stateside.
“It feels great to have a second opportunity at life,” Mariscal said. “It’s an overwhelming feeling. I don’t think I would have been happy in Mexico.”
