Ashurst: A Border Manifesto #3
Many of us who live here near the border with Mexico have been saying for some time that the illegal alien situation has reached the crisis level. We wait and hope for some kind of benevolent and hopeful message from our President and his Administration, but get no kind words.
As I’ve said before, since Rob Krentz’s death there has been no statement from the Administration to the Krentz family. But there have been many derogatory remarks about the racist Arizona people, Governor Brewer and SB1070. The vilification coming from Washington toward the people in AZ has been astounding. I believe this is deliberate and falls into Obama’s adherence to what has become known as the “Cloward-Piven Strategy.
Put into one sentence the Cloward-Piven Strategy is forcing change through orchestrated crises. Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s White House Press Secretary has been quoted saying, “A crisis is a terrible thing to waste.” The Obama Administration’s response to the ever growing Narco Terrorist problem on the southern border has been similar in strategy to his response to the problems in our economy, the BP oil spill, and the crisis in our financial institutions. Virtually every crisis Obama has faced has been with the strategy of making sure it gets bigger and better so Big Brother has to step in gaining control of every aspect of America. A key tenet in this Leftist ideology is that the middle class will be too busy and preoccupied with their lives to fight back, or for that matter even notice. I believe that the situation on the border is purposefully being ignored as much as possible until it reaches a boiling point with no solution in sight except amnesty and an open border.
Recently a group of Los Zetas, the most violent Narco Terrorist gang in Mexico, invaded U.S. soil and seized a ranch north of Laredo in Texas U.S.A. Los Zetas planned on using the ranch as a forward operation base for their smuggling activities. This story was published in Beef Magazine and can also be found on the internet. Texas law enforcement has corroborated this act of terrorism against American citizens on American soil yet nothing has been said in the main stream media or the White House press room.
Here are some facts to ponder: since December of 2006 there have been over 28,000 Narco Terrorist assassinations in Mexico alone, most of these within a few miles of the U.S. border. Mexican Cartel Narco Terrorists are killing more people than Al Quaida. Armed Mexican Narco Terrorists have been spotted within 25 miles of my house more than a dozen times in the last 2 years.
President Obama and the anti-gun lobby of the radical left like to blame the U.S. for arming the Mexican Cartels. Actually there is increasing evidence that this isn’t the case. As early as 2007 the National Drug Intelligence Center, an agency of the U.S. Justice Dept., stated in a report that the Mexican Drug Cartels had an increasing relationship with Hamas and Hezbollah, the popular front for the Liberation Of Palestine and other Middle Eastern Moslem Terrorist Organizations. The report said, “Islamic Terrorist Groups are selling Arms to Mexican Drug Trafficking Cartels and collaborating with them to distribute drugs to Europe and the Middle East. The Las Vegas Sun newspaper touched on this in an article on 8/20/2010.
There are also several articles to this effect found on the internet and yet the main stream media, in their usual style has given Obama a free pass allowing him to blame the U.S. and advance his anti-gun agenda. Common sense will tell you that the Mexican Drug Cartels with their multibillion dollar income and world-wide connections, coupled with an unlimited supply of U. S. enemies with guns to sell, have no need to rely on the U.S. for arms.
Volumes have been written about the corruption in Mexico. The culture of mordido (bribery) is deeply ingrained not only in local government but all the way to the President himself. In light of that, one has to wonder what Calderon will do with all the Aid being promised to him by Obama. Will U.S. tax dollars be filtered down from Calderon through various government agencies into the army and finally to the Cartels themselves? This idea is not as far fetched as it seems. In any case, in my opinion giving Aid to a country as corrupt and chaos ridden as Mexico is a poor investment at best. Promoting propaganda that implies a few smuggled arms going south from the U.S. into Mexico is arming the Drug Cartels is dishonest, and contradictory of government intelligence. Blaming the US. for something it really isn’t guilty of- does that sound familiar? Change through orchestrated chaos!
The country of Mexico has collapsed. I hear reports weekly of another ranch that has been seized by Drug Cartels. There have been entire towns along the Rio Grande seized. The good people being either murdered or run out and the towns turned into forward operating bases for smuggling activities. Just in the last 2 weeks I learned of a man with dual citizenship (U.S. and Mexican) who owned a large ranch and farm in Mexico. The Cartel told him to get out so he sold his ranch to them and deposited the money in a Mexican bank. Then he came north to Arizona and made a down payment on a ranch here but before escrow closed his Mexican Banker was murdered by Cartel assassins. Because of this, his money is tied up and he can not complete the purchase of the AZ ranch. He is now in limbo – no money, no ranch, no income and no where to go. I am acquainted with several people who know this man and I believe this story is true. Many wealthy families of good character have left Mexico, some to the United States, many to Europe, to escape the death and destruction that plagues their homeland. But the poor are stuck and it’s cooperate or die.
Recently Barack Obama invited Mexican President Calderon to Washington and gave him the opportunity to deride the tax paying, law abiding citizens of Arizona over the passing of SB1070 by the AZ Legislature. Imagine, President Calderon berating and insulting American citizens while his own country is collapsing in a shambles of corruption, with the good and honest people of Mexico being murdered and their property stolen by a multitude of thugs. But there President Calderon stood in Congress for all the world to see being applauded by Obama and all the Democrats present. This scene in Congress is unprecedented in American history; a sitting American President applauding the leader of a failed and corrupt foreign State while he verbally takes the whip to American citizens. Every politician who applauded should be thrown out of office. Obama’s actions of inviting Calderon, and then applauding his address to Congress was the worse betrayal of the American people in our country’s history and if treason is too harsh an accusation it is certainly looking off into that abyss.
Where do we go from here? I’m no Prophet but I think its naïve to the point of stupidity to think that the anarchy that now pervades Mexico will not become increasingly present north of the Mexican border. Indeed the entire focus of the outlaws who now rule Mexico is on the United States (considering the anarchy that has permeated Mexico, its hard for me to recognize Calderon’s so called leadership). All eyes, all guns and all the drugs are pointed north. The only thing going south is your money. If the current way we are NOT handling this problem continues things are sure to get bigger but not better.
When you couple this with Obama’s radical drift to the left and away from what should be considered right from wrong: an unconstitutional Healthcare Bill that the majority of Americans don’t want, the setting aside of $5 billion of Medicaid money for Florida Sen. Ben Nelson’s slush fund, the $20 billion compensation fund Obama forced BP to set up which will be administered by Obama cronies, a Cap and Trade Law that will stifle industry and ruin the private enterprise system that has made our nation great, Rahm Emanuel’s offer of high ranking jobs to people like Joe Sestak so he will pull out of the race with Arlen Spector, and Mr. Obama’s socialistic ideology seeking to destroy traditional America. He has ignored the constitution which has been the glue holding us together for two centuries.
But there is hope; with God all things are possible. I pray that Americans will wake up and begin to rebel (at the polling place) against this corrupt and intentionally incompetent Administration. I pray that we make our way back to a strict interpretation of our Constitution (not the revisionist interpretation of Obama, Emanuel, and Holder). I pray we realize we need to regain the basic principles of economics that Obama has abandoned. I pray we could go back to the policy of standing by our friends and allies (like Israel) rather than throw them under the bus. I pray that we seal our southern border so that Mexican outlaws can no longer come north and commit terrorist acts against American citizens. Last but not least I pray the American people would be given the ability to smell a skunk when he gets in the chicken house. God bless America.
