About That Moat Filled with Alligators at the Border…

President Obama was in Texas last week mocking concerns about border security. He even made a crack about unsatisfied Republicans. “What do they want, a moat filled with alligators?”

Um… yes:

Texas Department of Public Safety chief Steve McCraw testified before lawmakers in Washington on Wednesday.

He says the majority of people from terrorist sponsored countries are getting into the U.S. along the Texas border. He pointed to Ahmed Muhammad Dhakane as one of those terrorists.

He asked for asylum at an international crossing in Brownsville in 2008. Halfway through the request, Federal Bureau of Investigation Agents took a closer look at him. They say he was an Al Qaeda terrorist and human smuggler. Dhakane admits to smuggling seven members of Al Qaeda into the U.S.

He’s been sentenced to 10 years behind bars for lying on his asylum application.

Border security certainly hasn’t improved since 2008, no matter what Janet Napolitano says. If anything it’s gotten worse as the current administration looks the other way while “undocumented Democrats” (and select members of Al Qaeda) flock across the border.

With that in mind, Rep. Joe Walsh (R-ocky Mountain Way) is taking Obama up on the moat idea:

13 Illegals Arrested Wearing US Military Uniforms


According to Janet Napolitano, the border is as secure as it’s ever been, but almost every day we’re reminded why J-Nap isn’t even qualified to be a cashier at Borders if she actually believes that. Here’s the latest reminder:

Border Patrol agents recently arrested 13 illegal immigrants disguised as U.S. Marines and riding in a fake military van, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Tuesday.

The illegal immigrants were clad in Marine uniforms when they were apprehended at the Campo Border Patrol Westbound I-8 checkpoint at 11 p.m. on March 14 near Pine Valley, Calif., border officials said. Two U.S. citizens in the van also were arrested.

What gave them away? It probably didn’t help that the phony uniforms of all these geniuses just happened to be wearing were all sporting the same name:

All of the vehicle’s occupants wore U.S. Marine uniforms, reportedly emblazoned with the name “Perez.”

Hey, they’re illegals, not rocket scientists. If they were rocket scientists they all would have had the same German name.

The authorities should leave them dressed as Marines and haul them up to Berkeley — that’d be one way to get the freeze-dried Bay Area moonbats to finally want to get rid of illegals — albeit unwittingly.

“We didn’t cross the border, the border crossed US!” –Machete the Movie.
The stupidest thing Lindsey Lohan has ever said. (Wait…maybe that was Jessica Alba…wait…maybe that was the Mayor of Los Angles..wait…wasn’t that Carlos Estevez?)

Nobody Knows
why anyone would want to make a movie about some guy going around loaded with giant machetes, cutting off American gringo’s heads, stirring up the Mexican’s hatred with passionate dreams about wanting to invade our country and take it as theirs.. but there you go. One must start with replacing the soon to be dead old people in the United States with young Mexican blood sometime..
There is a double standard here. You do NOT go into Mexico if you’re an American, and expect to live anymore. Over 35,000 have been murdered since the drug wars began, and just recently, one of our own agents, Jaime Zapata was gunned down. Nevertheless, Obama said:
“There are laws in place in Mexico that say that our agents should not be armed,” He describes the U.S. role south of the border as an “advisory” one. “We do not carry out law enforcement activities inside of Mexico.”
We can use, bean bags, water pistols, naked women, gum balls, and giant pictures of Mao painted on Chinese tanks, and prayer…but not much else.
While we have had our eyes glued to Charlie Sheen, who is trying to get us all hook on his affordable but bog standard Charlie Sheen drug, (his kids are in rehab) Mexico is getting ready for its final invasion.
Oh…they are here already? You haven’t seen nothing yet.
Ask yourself…are you one of those mean gringo’s who do NOT want poor Mexicans driving their trucks on your local highway, spilling vast bags of corn, beans, bananas, and live chickens, onto your windshield, while your wife screams—“We’re all gonna die!?”
And then, do you get angry when that Mexican comes and takes YOUR job and gets his children into your colleges, sometimes for free, when you can’t even afford to send your own kids?
Well..look out. If you think Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush did all that NAFTA work for nothing…think again.
‘President’ Obama got together recently with Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon, who is getting really impatient about the NAFTA agreement for the Mexicans trucks to start coming up the American highways. In Washington, last October 15, Jose Luis Paz Vega, head of the NAFTA office at the Mexican embassy in Washington said:

“Mexico is not willing to take that anymore. We need a program that is permanent,that has certainty, and complies with NAFTA. And we`re not willing to accept anything less than that.”

Those are fighting machete words, gringo’s, and Machete Obama is intent on chopping up Arizona, and any other state that stands in his way on this. 
You know, the leaders of all three countries didn’t even ASK the citizens of their countries if they wanted to merge. (America, Mexico and Canada) We didn’t even get to vote on it. Maybe the Mexican people would have agreed to learn English, and an arrangement could have been made for Americans to be welcomed in Mexico—-been able to buy land, start businesses..and learn Spanish.
The Mexican trucks won’t be inspected, and their drivers won’t even have to have a drivers license.
Holy Moly Macaroni Machete!
Are the teamsters the least bit mad about this? Obama promised this wouldn’t happen.
Well Tacos,…he lied.
This nobody thinks instead of our wars in Vietnam and Iraq, we should have invaded Cuba and Mexico. Mexico has oil, and Castro was a butt-head long before Gaddafi and Chavez.
Really, lame brains…the lot of them.
So muchachos…bring in the trucks, the drugs, and the illegal’s inside the trucks, and the disease, and the poverty, and the taxes…our dollar needs a bit more help to collapse it to its final resting place ..somewhere around the Alamo.
Nobody is going to go hide in the Everglades and farm gators.
Joyanna Adams ..sitting in for Doug Powers, who is, we hope, winning in Las Vegas, or at least..getting free drinks. (joyannaadams.wordpress.com)

An October Surprise Comes 2 Days Early: Meg Whitman’s Illegal Alien Housekeeper

Here’s the deal as I understand it at the moment. Meg Whitman, the Republican who’s running for governor of California against Moonbeam Brown, fired a housekeeper last year who it turns out is in the country illegally. Whitman claims she fired the housekeeper after discovering that she’d lied about her legal employment status on her job application.

The woman and her attorney, the obnoxious dirtbag magnet Gloria Allred, claim Whitman knew as early as 2003 that the housekeeper was an illegal alien and only chose to fire her after deciding she could be a political liability during her run for governor. Oh, and Allred also claims that Whitman was a big meanie of a boss to her client, but I’m guessing the “illegal” part is going to be the story here.

It’s said that Whitman received a “no match” letter from the Social Security Administration, which is a red flag concerning a discrepancy with an employee’s social security number.

Michelle Malkin on that point:

Yes, Gloria Allred is a crapweasel. But an SSN no-match letter usually speaks for itself. And if Whitman did in fact receive the no-match letter in 2003/2005, her credibility goes out the window.

If Whitman did know about her housekeeper’s illegal status years before she allegedly fired her for the same offense, then Whitman’s earned whatever the fallout is from this.

Don’t people usually hire illegal help because they can pay them less than minimum wage?

Nicky Diaz Santillan, Whitman’s housekeeper of 9 years, held a news conference with her lawyer, Gloria Allred, and claims Whitman had all the clues she was an undocumented worker but closed her eyes to it because she was cheap help … $23 an hour.

Criminy… what’s the minimum wage in California? It seems to me that, especially in this economy, you could find a legal resident to work for that same money. But I understand this is also California, where a glass of lemonade at a kid’s stand will put you back $40.

It’s also worth noting that if Whitman had suspected in 2000 that the applicant wasn’t legal and declined to hire her based on that, Gloria Allred (and most on the left for that matter) would have accused Whitman of profiling and racism — but I digress.

But I’ll wait until all the facts are in before laughing at Whitman for the hypocrisy of things like this:


The moral of the story for rich politicians: Do your own damn housekeeping!

Team Obama Orders Massive Deployment of 30 National Guard Troops to Arizona

Sheesh, what are you complaining about, Arizona? Obama has sent 30 members of the National Guard and had 15 warning signs put up. But no, that’s not enough — You just can’t please some people:

(CNSNews.com) – Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said requests by Arizona law enforcement personnel and Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) for 3,000 National Guard troops along the state’s border with Mexico have been answered so far with 1 percent of that number deployed there this week.

“We have a whopping 30 [National Guard troops] this week that are showing up,” Babeu told CNSNews.com. “It’s less than a half-hearted measure designed to fail.”

But the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has placed 15 signs along a 60-mile stretch of Interstate 8 that links San Diego with Phoenix and Tucson warning travelers of drug cartels and human trafficking operations.

Thirty troops, or as Obama’s calling it, “The surge.”

How much help was Arizona to expect from an administration that just condemned their immigration law in a report to the UN Human Rights Commission? If anything, those 30 troops are there to keep an eye on Jan Brewer and to report back directly to Ban Ki-moon.


National Security, Obama-style: Warning Americans to avoid parts of America

Early Score: Arizona 1 – Obama Admin 0

So far the government’s case against Arizona is going about as well as their case for the drilling moratorium:

“Why can’t Arizona be as inhospitable as they wish to people who have entered or remained in the United States?” U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton asked in a pointed exchange with Deputy Solicitor General Edwin S. Kneedler. Her comment came during a rare federal court hearing in the Justice Department’s lawsuit against Arizona and Gov. Jan Brewer (R).

Bolton, a Democratic appointee, also questioned a core part of the Justice Department’s argument that she should declare the law unconstitutional: that it is “preempted” by federal law because immigration enforcement is an exclusive federal prerogative.

“How is there a preemption issue?” the judge asked. “I understand there may be other issues, but you’re arguing preemption. Where is the preemption if everybody who is arrested for some crime has their immigration status checked?”

Writes Ed Morrissey: “Based on the initial reactions of Bolton, the White House may get laughed out of court more quickly than first thought.”

Obama is his own worst enemy — he obviously believed all the “walk on water” press clippings he got from the Obamaniacle media and figured the courts would buy into it too. So far it doesn’t seem to be turning out that way.

In the meantime, Jan Brewer has a 19 point lead in the Arizona governor’s race.

Update: La Shawn Barber has a piece at Pajamas Media about a state’s right to enforce immigration law.

Arizona Defense Fund Tops $500,000 Mark

The real shame of this whole thing is that taxpayers are donating money to fight a federal government that’s suing a US state with taxpayer money — meaning you and I are paying for the prosecution and the defense, but only one of them willingly:

PHOENIX (AP) — Donations to a special fund to help Arizona pay to defend its immigration enforcement law now total roughly $500,000, with more than half of the contributions made as the federal government sued to challenge the law.

The U.S. Justice Department filed its suit Tuesday in federal court in Phoenix. A document obtained by The Associated Press from Gov. Jan Brewer’s office showed that 7,008 of the 9,057 contributions submitted to the fund’s website by Thursday morning were made in the days following the government’s filing.

The site to donate is here. If only the Obama administration would use the money they’re suing Arizona with to secure the border the problem would be closer to being solved. But then, this isn’t about solving any problem except that Team Obama fears there won’t be enough votes for them in November if we chase away all the “undocumented Democrats.”

Of Course: Obama Picks Critic of Immigration Enforcement to Head Immigration Enforcement Office

Personally I thought Obama would choose this idiot to head up Immigrations & Customs Enforcement, but this guy is the next best thing — in a wildly counterproductive kind of way:

The Obama administration has tapped an outspoken critic of immigration enforcement on the local level to oversee and promote partnerships between federal and local officials on the issue.

Harold Hurtt, a former police chief in Houston and Phoenix, has been hired as the director for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Office of State and Local Coordination. Starting July 6, Hurtt will supervise outreach and communication between ICE, local law enforcement agencies, tribal leaders and representatives from non-governmental organizations.
But as a police chief, Hurtt was a supporter of “sanctuary city” policies, by which illegal immigrants who don’t commit crimes can live without fear of exposure or detainment because police don’t check for immigration papers.

He also, during his tenure as Houston police chief, criticized ICE’s key program that draws on local law enforcement’s support.

It’s a $180,000 a year gig. Our money will be well spent once again.

Next, look for Cindy Sheehan to get the nod for Secretary of Defense.

What Do the Obama Administration and Mexico Have in Common?

Both work diligently against the interests of the United States and are filing legal challenges against Arizona:

PHOENIX — Mexico is asking a federal court in Arizona to declare the state’s new immigration law unconstitutional.

Lawyers for Mexico on Tuesday submitted a legal brief in support of a lawsuit challenging the law.

“Lawyers for Mexico”? I thought that’s what we’ve been paying Eric Holder to do. Mexico’s wasting money on their own legal team when they already have one in Washington DC.

It has to be asked: When Mexico is challenging the “constitutionality” of Arizona’s law, are they referring to Mexico’s constitution, or the US constitution? If Obama & Friends are in charge much longer the two might be interchangeable.

It’s truly amazing that we have an American president teaming up with a foreign country in bringing legal proceedings against a US state.

Here’s Mexico’s “reasoning”:

Mexico says its interest in having consistent relations with the United States shouldn’t be frustrated by one state.

Yes, Mexico would prefer that all US states have lax security and hands tied by politically correctness.

Out-of-Control Arizona Police Profile and Arrest Undocumented Cockfighters

More civil rights horrors perpetrated by Arizona authorities:

TONOPAH, Ariz. – An illegal cockfighting ring was busted in the west valley and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is not taking this animal cruelty lightly.

The fights were held in Tonopah, near 385th Avenue and Southern. Nearly 70 people were arrested, including 20 suspected illegal aliens.

“We do not give tickets out, we arrest them and put them in handcuffs, book them into our jail when they violate animal cruelty laws. I don’t care if it’s against dogs, cats, horses, roosters or what have you.” Arpaio said.

When will this inhumanity end? Somebody please stop Arizona “law enforcement” before none of us have any rights left! It’s time for undocumented cockfighters to stand up and say in unison, “From my cold, dead rooster!”

Where’s Machete when we need him most?
