Rick Perry To The Border

If you are an American citizen, the good news is your night will not be disturb by hordes of criminals wandering the streets of your neighborhood. I can now promise each and every American the days of fear are over! Governor Rick Perry of the great state of Texas has mounted his horse, and dashed toward the border with Mexico in order to stand, armed with assault rifles in order to blast away at the hordes of Mexicans headed for the border. Rick has ordered over a thousand National Guardsmen to take up arms and march toward the Rio Grande in order to prevent an invasion of ‘those people.’ Governor Perry believes the recent arrival of Mexicans has become a threat to our NATIONAL SECURITY. He believes we need the National Guard, more Border Patrols, jet planes, and the assistance of our Navy in order to repel terrorists headed for America.

Of course, the new “horde” consists of children fleeing from beatings, rape and murder in their native lands. They seek refuge with relatives in America which certainly classifies as a threat to our NATIONAL SECURITY. Naturally, Governor Perry blames you-know-who for this “disaster.” Just check with whoever is discussing illegal immigrants on Fox News and they will make clear the you-know-who is none other than the you-know-who inhabiting the White House.

Republican Congressman Steve Pearce made a weekend visit to Honduras and returned to inform Americans that children were fleeing due to economic interests, not due to fear of violence. During his weekend, Congressman Pearce never left the hotel due to his fears of violence. Oh well, a weekend makes anyone an expert, particularly if he never left the hotel!

Warehouse The Kids!

Members of the Republican party have finally identified the real threat from terrorists, and they are furious at refusal of President Obama to respond to a potential influx of thousands of militants who pose a real and present danger to our nation. No, these are not Muslim terrorists. No, these are not members of violent members of Boko Haram from Nigeria. No, they are not coming from eastern Ukraine with guns in hand. Thank God, we have Republican Congressman Michael McCaul who has identified the most important threat to our survival as a nation. So, who are the terrorists seeking to dwell within our midst while they employ their weapons of horror? If you go to our border with Mexico and gaze outward it is possible to see the advancing hordes descending upon our border. They are children fleeing beatings, rape and murder. And, now, according to the Republican party they intend to enter our hallowed grounds and commit horrors unknown to Americans. They intend to go to school, do their homework or work in our fields picking peaches and strawberries. Imagine the mayhem that will emanate from these actions?

Congressman McCaul has a plan. “I think we have to have a deterrence, and if we are to build facilities, we should build them in countries of origin in Central America.” He wants to construct warehouses for the children. Talk about a man who loves Jesus Christ. There is no doubt if Jesus was alive today he would be standing on the border line with gun in hand aiming at—? Who is the question?

Secure The Border, Demands Perry!

I am currently engaged in writing the history of 1953 as it unfolded in the United States of America. In the course of this research, the topic of borders and immigrants continually crops up. Those immigrants coming from Mexico were referred to as, “wetbacks” and their numbers hovered around 800,000 a year. This would be the equivalent of about 3,000,000 in 2014 terms. However, there was an illegal immigrant influx from our northern border with Canada which was estimated to be about, 500,000– 1,500,000 in 2014 terms. The president was Dwight Eisenhower, a famous general from WWII. I have yet to encounter a single story which blames President Eisenhower for the immigrant situation. Not a single Democrat blamed the Republicans, not a single Democrat argued that President Eisenhower was refusing to carry out the law. Not a single Democrat called for impeachment. Frankly, I have yet to come across a single demand to send in the National Guard.

Fast forward to 2014 and a Democrat is President. According to Texas Governor Rick Perry, “five hundred miles south of the Rio Grande Valley there is a humanitarian crisis unfolding that has been created by bad public policy, in particular, failure to secure the border.” There is a humanitarian crisis. Thousands of children are fleeing from Central America in order to save their lives from rapists, gangsters and murderers. Perry met with President Obama, they shook hands. Obama insisted, “I indicated to him that what he said made sense”(placing the National Guard closer to the border.). Obama wants more aid to help children, but he also agrees on deporting immigrants. Perry blames Obama for failures of President Bush to do anything.

The only humanitarian crisis is that children are at risk. Rick Perry has no threats to his life. How about worrying about the children??

Strangers In Their Own Land

As I recall, a long, long time ago, thousands of people from European nations such as Spain or Portugal or England decided to depart from Europe and head west toward some new lands. Of course, several thousand years before their arrival, a few thousand folks from Asia decided to head east and cross over into the new world that is now known as the Western Hemisphere. As I recall, there were no border patrols to halt them, to question their financial ability to reside in this hemisphere, and certainly no shouting and screaming Indians protesting the arrival of these strangers in THEIR LAND! Thousands of children and their families are fleeing from the horror that is Central America in which gangs of creatures beat, rape and kill for the joy of beating, raping and killing. Children are trapped in a horror that usually is presented in fictional movies. Their reality is not even being able to attend school without the fear of death of brutalization. So, they head north, hoping by some miracle they can be allowed to reside in some location that provides a modicum of peace and security, and, hopefully, work.

These are the people who pick our peaches, work in our meat plants, build our roads, pick up the garbage of our lives as well as caring for the children in our lives needed home care. These are simply decent hard working people who only desire to work, to work with their hands, to build, to construct,and to feel meaning as individuals. All they want is a chance. Protesters in south Texas are blocking highways because the Border Patrol is sending most of these people to facilities in San Diego. There is only ONE family detention center in this county! So, shout insults, demand your right to hate. Just check the 2nd Amendment, it says I can shoot anyone who I regards as a threat to my life.

Instead of blocking roads, how about offering your services as peach pickers?

“We Will Deport The Children”

I was a young boy living in America during the 1930s when children in Germany whose crime was to be Jewish were confronting the horror of hatred and violence. The United States of America,k basically, refused to allow thousands of Jews to escape death by coming to our nation as immigrants–this was the era of Depression. The American government even refused to allow children to enter our sacred shores. Fortunately, England did agree to accept hundreds of German Jewish children which enabled them to escape the Holocaust. There is no Holocaust in Central America, but the lives of children in Guatemala, Honduras or El Salvador is filled with daily fear of beatings, rape or death at the hands of rival drug gangs that believe in the cult of death. Thousands of children from these lands have fled to the border of America in hope of asylum from the horror that awaits them at home. They have arrived in response to rumors that if they reach the US border, they will be allowed to enter and then sent to relatives in America.

Naturally, since the children do not have a million dollars, Republicans do not want them in THEIR country. Naturally, President Obama continues believing that if he is tough on the border, then Republicans will cooperate with him on immigration reform. To believe such nonsense is to believe the Tooth Fairy exists. US Secretary of State John Kerry told Central American leaders the children will not be allowed to enter. “We obviously understand people who want to do better and who look for a better life. But at the same time there are rules and laws, and there is a process, and there is false information that is being spread about benefits that might be available to the young people.”

Have we not learned anything from the Holocaust? How about allowing children with relatives in America who are willing to allow the children to live with them to enter? The fact that children would have a home and food and education without requiring federal dollars does not impact the survival of this nation. However, it does impact the survival of these children.

Deport The Children!

Among the ongoing Republican mantras is that President Barack Obama has failed to control our border with Mexico resulting in a flood of illegal immigrants. Actually, statistically, under the Obama administration three times the number of illegal immigrants have been returned to Mexico than occurred during the administration of former President George Bush. REALITY –the Obama administration now holds the record for return of most immigrants to Mexico more than any other prior administration! Naturally, Republicans and Fox News refuse to accept reality. The latest migrant event is arrival of over 50,000 unaccompanied children who seek refuge from violence, rape and death in Guatamala, Honduras and El Salvador. These countries are witnessing mass violence caused by drug gangs who, literally, are engaged in a civil war with their governments. Children are caught in the middle. Most teen girls simply fear they will be raped unless they escape to another place.

President Obama is requesting new fast-track legislation which would allow speedy return of the children. So, why does the evil Obama need new legislation? Former REPUBLICAN President George Bush established strict protocol for the handling of children illegal immigrants. Border Patrol agents must hold them for 72 hours, and then turn them over to the Department of Health and Human Services. In other words, under REPUBLICAN presidents, it was the law that illegal children could NOT readily be returned to their former countries! So, now the president who is accused of not protecting our border seeks new laws to undo REPUBLICAN legal procedures!

We oppose deportation of these children to certain violence and possible rape or death. America turned its back on saving Jewish children during the 1930s, let us not turn our backs on these children.

Drug Cartels In Mexico Vs People

I continue to be confused about drug wars in Mexico. One would assume the Mexican army when sent to confront drug cartels would be able to gain victory on the field of battle. However, the figures are quite clear as to who is winning which battle. Since 2007, about 85,000 Mexicans have been murdered by drug cartels who battle one another as well as torment the lives of innocent Mexicans. In the state of Michoacan self defense vigilante groups have emerged. They are tired of the kidnapping, the brutality, the extortion, and the murder that goes on and on. OK, one can blame we Americans for creating this mess due to our drug laws which only transform poor into wealthy Mexican gangs. They draw upon our desire for drugs in order to murder their fellow Mexicans as gangs battle one another for control of this or that drug territory.

How come a modern army possessing tanks, planes, armed helicopters and a navy is unable to defeat in combat drug gangs? I am confused. The only logical explanation is the ineptness of the Mexican “army.” The Mexican army cannot even sweep through a town with tanks and weapons in order to clean up a single area. How come? Perhaps, the vigilante groups are the only intelligent mechanism to defeat drug lords. Of course, if these vigilantes win, they most probably will transform themselves into a new drug gang and the story will repeat itself over and over again.

How about legalizing drugs in America, and allow the Federal government to supervise sale of drugs in government certified stores?

March Of Children To America

The American media is worried about the influx of terrorists from the Middle East, and conservatives declare the importance of preventing immigrants from entering our beloved nation. During the time period, 1880-1925 about 25,000,000 people entered the United States, and by 1914 one out of four Americans was either an immigrant or child of an immigrant. Today, the figure is not 25%, but about 11%. Of course, those “hordes”of people were the ancestors of many Americans today. Of course, THEIR ANCESTORS were taking jobs away from Americans, could not speak English, were criminals and lived in ghettoes. At this moment, thousands of refugees from violence and crime in Central America are crossing the border seeking peace, jobs, and a place to live. Thousands of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatamala are entering America. Even as thousands enter, thousands are being returned to the horror from which they fled.

Sacred Heat Church in McAllen, Texas is filled with children and women seeking refuge. Fortunately, thousands of Americans have donated food, clothing, medicine in an attempt to aid these desperate people. The immigration service is simply overwhelmed, they are giving bus tickets to children so they can find relatives in America. This new Children’s Crusade is a response to violence. So, what can be done?

1. Central American nations require a mini-Marshall plan that would develop their economies and provide work for people.
2. There is need to aid development of honest police forces in this region. They not only need training, but proper equipment, including police helicopters.
3. We need a sensible policy that allows illegal immigrants to secure citizenship.

Tea Party Pot Boils Over

There is good news in America, the evil Eric Cantor has fallen from grace, and been replaced by a real God fearing, 100%, blue blooded Christian by the name of David Brat. Finally, we will have men and women in Congress who will protect us from the terrorism of Catholics pouring across our borders in order to sweep our streets, pick up our garbage, cut out mean, and baby sit our children. Just imagine if we Americans had to do those tasks! Tea Party folk want to get someone in charge of Congress who will finally refuse to work with Barack Obama. Pet Sessions from the great state of Texas issued a warning to members of Congress. “I think this administration needs to be prodded and reminded that the entire sovereignty of the United States is at risk if we do not secure our border, north, south, east and west.”

I believe that under the administration of the dude from Africa TWICE AS MANY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS HAVE BEEN DEPORTED THAN WERE UNDER THE PRIOR PRESIDENT FROM THE GREAT STATE OF TEXAS! The pot has boiled over and Tea Party activists want to change leadership of the Republican party from the Boehners and Cantors who have devoted the past five years doing whatever Barack Obama desires. After all, this Congress has passed fewer laws than any prior in fifty years. That is what happens when Republican leaders become stooges of the president.

Albuquerque Police Quite Jerky

Albuquerque is in the state of New Mexico and it, undoubtedly is among the key targets of terrorist groups and those seeking to sow violence in our society. Since 2010 the police of this American city have killed –we do not employ the word, “murder” when police kill a person, at least 25 people. It is difficult to encounter examples in which those killed were firing weapons of violence other than their physical presence or mouth. Activists, including those who have lost sons and daughters due to police blasting away with guns rather than physical restraint, attempted to see Mayor Roland Berry. He was busy. One of the protesters made clear that “We’re going to be in the administration’s face until we feel safe in our own city. This community is in fear of the police.”

The Mayor refused to discuss issues regarding police violence. He is certain that no innocent person was ever killed by members of the police. One activist, David Correia will be in court on charges of a felony because he pushed a member of the police force. When in Albuquerque walk politely, speak politely, and, if you have to be killed, please don’t raise your voice. Just accept death. If not, you will be charged with police brutality.
