The REAL reason our Southern Border will never be secure

nicholasstixuncensored

The Senate on Tuesday by a vote of 54-39 rejected an amendment to the latest version of the Senate’s new immigration bill. The amendment offered by Senator John Thune of South Dakota should have been a no brainer to pass. The Thune Amendment simply called for the completion and funding of a 700 mile stretch of double tiered fencing along our Southern Border.

What was so surprising about the failure of this amendment was some of the reasoning for its failure. Most of the Senators that voted against it were Democrats; but there were also five Republicans, including all four members of the so called “Gang of Eight” that voted against the measure too. The so called Republicans were: Senator John McCain, Senator Lindsey Graham, Senator Jeff Flake, and surprisingly even Senator Marco Rubio. The only Senator not part of the Gang of Eight that also voted against the measure was Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski.

Senator John McCain said he voted against the measure stating, “We should leave that issue (the border fence) to the best judgment of the Border Patrol.” This is the same John McCain who in a tough primary challenge in 2010 actually ran a campaign ad in which he says, “let’s build the dang fence!”

Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina also voted against the measure which is not surprising because pretty much anything John McCain does Lindsey follows suit.

Senator Jeff Flake, who replaced a solid conservative in Jon Kyl, also voted against the measure. Unfortunately as of late Mr. Flake has been living up to his name when it comes to the immigration issue.

Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski, who routinely sides with the Democrats also voted against the bill. She was appointed in 2002 by her father, another Rino Republican Frank Murkowski who at the time was Governor of Alaska.

However the most surprising vote came from Senator Marco Rubio. As one of the leaders of the Gang of Eight he was supposed to be the Conservative voice of reason when it came to crafting the immigration bill. Mr. Rubio has been talked about as a possible contender for the Presidency in 2016. By voting against this measure he may have severely diminished any hopes he had at seeking the Republican Nomination for President in 2016.

So why did five Republicans vote against a measure that would have helped eliminate more illegal immigration? Don’t they realize that if they pass Amnesty they will be committing political suicide? Don’t they even question the motives of the Democratic Party who are so focused on passing Amnesty they are trying to rush it through as quickly as possible? Why are they afraid to make border enforcement an integral part of the process?

The short answer is they have bought into the Democratic Party’s scare tactics, and have misinterpreted the election results of 2012. They think that passing Amnesty is somehow going to ingratiate themselves into the majority of Hispanic voter’s minds and allow them to capture more of the vote share. This is a grave miscalculation. If we grant Amnesty to 11 million illegal immigrants the majority, over 60% of these new voters will be votes for the Democratic Party. Typically you dance with the person who brought you to the party and these new voters will be doing the twist front and center for the Democrats.

Republicans can win these voters with the right message and the right messenger. Granting Amnesty is not the solution unless they are interested in a government that will become a dictatorship under a one party rule.

So why is the Republican Party willingly putting themselves in a position that will lead to permanent minority status?

The long answer is the Republican Party of 2013 is no longer about limited government and individual freedom. The Republican Party of 2013 is about Globalism and the embracing of a New World Order.

For those of you who have never heard of the website SPP.GOV I implore you to Google it as soon as possible. SPP.GOV stands for the Shared Prosperity Partnership of North America. This is the real reason why you will never see a fence built on the Southern Border. The idea behind the Shared Prosperity Partnership is to create a North American Union similar to the European Union in Europe.

The North American Union, if it were ever to be implemented would combine Canada, the United States, and Mexico into one large Global Governance. In addition it would also change our currency from the almighty dollar bill into something called the Amero. Finally it would create a super highway that would start in Southern Mexico, run straight across the United States, and end somewhere in Northern Canada.

This is the true reason both parties are not serious about protecting our borders. This is why both parties want to pass Amnesty. This is why it is so vitally important that we fight this bill or any Amnesty bill now and in the future. If we somehow allow Amnesty to pass there is a real good possibility that a North American Union could be in our future.

Think about what a North American Union could do to our sovereignty rights? Think about what it could do to our Constitutional rights, especially our Second Amendment? Think about what it could do to our currency and our economy? Worst of all, think about what it will do to our deep rooted American pride? As Americans we are a very prideful people. We have always separated ourselves from the rest of the world based on our unique history and coveted status as the world’s most powerful superpower. Why would we ever knowingly want to give up that status or relinquish our standing in the world?

For America to remain a free country we must protect our borders. A country that does not protect its own borders will cease to be a country at some point. Any thought of legalizing illegal immigrants without first securing our borders could be a means to an end for America.

Solving the illegal immigration issue could be simple if we use some common sense.

First thing we should do is modify the birthright citizenship rule to only grant citizenship to the child being born on American soil. By eliminating citizenship to the parents of the child born here you send a clear message that just because your child was born here doesn’t give you the right to claim citizenship. If illegal immigrants knew that only their children who were born here could have automatic citizenship you would see a lot less illegal immigrants crossing the border to have children and abusing this law.

The second thing we could do is finally complete the fence across the entire border. Once the border is secure, we could build 2 or 3 maximum security correctional facilities in each one of the Border States right along side of it. We could even save the taxpayer’s in each respective Border State the cost of building these complexes by having the illegal aliens we capture help build them.

Finally, after we deport all the folks who have criminal records we give the remaining aliens a choice.

The first choice is immediate deportation or they would run the risk of being incarcerated in one of the maximum security correctional facilities they helped build.

The second choice would be to have them serve in our military. If they want to be Americans and truly love our country, than they should be willing to fight and die for it. After they have served in the military for a few years they should be granted full citizenship on the day they have been honorably discharged. At that point they should be entitled to every single benefit that natural born Americans have. That is how you fix the illegal immigration issue.

As a writer, commentator, and radio talk show host my job is talk about the important issues and offer common sense solutions. With all the dysfunction that permeates through Washington, D.C. it would be a miracle if any sound legislation ever was to pass. In the meantime it is imperative that we call our Senators and Congress members and let them know that we strongly oppose this bill. A majority in America and a minority in Congress can create a majority in Congress.

Immigration Reform? Secure the Border First.

arizona border

President Obarizona borderama, talking about his illegal immigrant solution, told Univision this week that the US-Mexico border is more secure than ever.

Not surprisingly, we’re arguing semantics. More secure? Maybe. Secure? Not. As an Arizona resident, I hope those working on immigration reform press to secure the border first.  If you live on the East Coast traveling quickly from state to state it might be unimaginable the size of challenges of our Southern Border.  It’s nearly 350 miles East to West across the state. Almost 400 miles of border with Mexico.

But take a look at this CNN report with an Arizona border rancher. Does this look secure to you? How hard is it for Coyotes and drug smugglers to figure out where the fence ends? Traveling like armed ghosts in the night (and sometimes by light), the rugged terrain may slow down sightseers but those wishing to cross do so easily, continuing to endanger the lives of US residents.

The administration brags that there are fewer illegals coming into the country than before. But many would argue this reduction is due to a continued stagnant economy allowing for fewer undocumented workers to find jobs.

No one argues that fences will stop everyone from crossing. But most everyone does agree that they do significantly slow the numbers. Like plugging a leaky boat with a rag, water may still seep in but at a more manageable rate and you are no longer in danger of sinking.

 

 

Border Patrol agents shot in Arizona, one dead

Border-patrol agent shot in arizona

Officer Nicholas Ivie, 30,  is dead and another wounded after three Border Patrol officers came under fire after responding to a tripped ground sensor near the border town of Naco, Arizona.

Border security had been an ongoing concern, especially for Arizona’s Governor Jan Brewer who has been continually at odds at the Obama administration’s handling of the serious issue. Gov Brewer stated that “there should be anger, too. Righteous anger – at the kind of evil that causes sorrow this deep, and at the federal failure and political stalemate that has left our border unsecured and our Border Patrol in harm’s way.”

The shooting took place just 5 miles from the Mexican border in a heavily-used corridor for drug smuggling where the officers were patrolling on horseback and sent to investigate a tripped ground sensor. The sensors detect movement in areas frequented by border-crossers.

A 20-mile wide search for Ivie’s killer is now in progress with law enforcement using helicopters and horses to cover the zone although it is likely that the suspects fled back into Mexico after the shooting.

Nicholas Ivie is the first Agent to have been fatally shot since the infamous Brian Terry shooting at the end of 2010.

The injured agent went into surgery today for non-life-threatening injuries to the ankle and buttocks and is expected to recover.

Pirates Rights

We hear so much today about rights. I want my rights. He wants his rights. They want their rights. Everybody wants what’s coming to them. These “rights snatchers” have several things in common. Their most distinctive common thread is thin skin, they are easily offended, and they are often minorities.

Illegal aliens from Mexico, are the darling minority and heart throb of the news media. They want their rights too. But it’s not like their basic human rights in this country are being violated. They have the right to life. No illegal alien can be indiscriminately killed at the whim of any other illegal or legal citizen. All would agree that even illegal aliens have a right to live, but other than this basic right, what rights should be granted to lawbreakers? The rub comes in when they claim, as a right, something that should be an earned privilege for legal citizens, such as certain government benefits, or the legal right to drive a vehicle, or constitutional rights, etc., which SHOULD BE RESERVED FOR LAW ABIDING CITIZENS. Where, oh where, is common sense?

They are breaking the immigration laws of this country by arriving and remaining here illegally. Regardless of their reason for coming, the issue of legality must remain paramount. If the debate gets sidetracked as to why they came here, or that they have family here and cannot be separated, then emotion begins to rule and feelings dictate how they must be dealt with. When laws are not enforced, then authority is destroyed, and when there is no authority, situational ethics become the authority, which means laws are written in Jell-O. Apparently our immigration laws are as firm as lemon Jell-O. Notice, the color of lemon is yellow.

So not only are illegal aliens breaking the law, they are flaunting their criminality in arrogance, demanding to receive more than hard working, lifelong citizens, who have paid their dues. They also have the gall to be “offended” when called on the carpet. Now, all the old guard career offendees, led by Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, have to battle just to get in line and be heard, since new minorities are jockeying to be heard with their list of offenses. Blacks are offended at the Confederate flag, undocumented Mexicans are offended because they are called illegal aliens, Muslims are offended because someone points out that terrorists are, coincidentally, Muslim, American Indians are mad because some sports team is named the Braves. You get the picture.

Well, fair is fair. I’m here to proclaim the rights of a downtrodden group who have never had a voice; a group in history who had the unfortunate luck to live before the days of political correctness and liberalism, otherwise, they could have bellied up to the bar of offense and ordered their drink of reparation. I am speaking of pirates. I’m not talking about modern day sissy pirates who make and sell CD’s and DVD’s illegally. They wouldn’t last two seconds under Captain Kidd. I’m talking about swashbuckling, rope swinging, ship burning, booty stealing, brawling pirates. Historically, I believe pirates have been misunderstood. I know that pirates murdered, committed pillage and rape, and stole, but they should be granted amnesty. You have got to be compassionate and understand their background and condition. After being cooped up on a ship with a bunch of smelly men, all walking around and saying “Arrrrrgh”, for months at a time, you would rob and plunder too. Besides, who are you to deny someone of making a living?

How can anyone sit in judgment of pirates? So they pushed the legal envelope. They only did what they had to do to make a living. Murder, stealing, and destroying property were all just part of the job description. It’s what they did, not who they were. I’m sure most pirates were decent, patriotic, God fearing, family loving, hardworking (you ever tried loading a cannon ball?) people who wanted to better themselves.

Pirates have gotten a bad rap. They are belittled in today’s society. Now days, no little boy wants to grow up and be a pirate. They only want to play pirate in their childhood. And it is a slap in the face to name a ball team the Pirates, or Buccaneers. Imagine the outrage if you heard of such teams as the Tacoma Terrorists, Minnesota Muslims, Annapolis Arabs, Mighty Mexicans, or New York Negroes. We would never hear the end of it. But no one ever speaks up for the minority group of pirates when they are mocked and ridiculed.

If you are a pirate or descended from piratage, then you may consider joining C.A.P.R., the Council on American Pirate Relations, for a fair representation. And hurry! The other minorities are winning at the present.

Dept. of Homeland Security Sec Admits Not Enforcing Immigration Laws

While I’m not quite sure what the heck “technically unlawfully” means, I am sure that failing to enforce the immigration laws is a dereliction of duty. Sessions reads a letter from border officers where they site her failure and their “vote of no confidence” in Janet Napolitano’s ability to enforce the nation’s laws.

This administration created a crisis by not allowing the enforcement of border laws. Then admits they can’t deport all the ones getting through. Somehow – it’s not their fault?

911 Remembered

Ten years ago on September, 11th, an icon of American capitalism was attacked and destroyed by Islamic Terrorists. The Twin Towers were not only representative of New York City’s modern architecture, but they were the symbol of America’s powerhouse economy, built in a country of freedom and liberty.

That was before – this is now:

Because of two Jihadist pilots, we are no longer the country we were before that day. Many of our freedoms have been infringed and virtually wiped out of our everyday life. From warrantless wiretaps to TAS’ groping searches, Americans can no longer feel free to say what they please or go long distances unmolested on airplanes. Loved ones can no longer walk to the airport gates to say goodbye to their families or friends. Our “open-door” immigration policy is still in effect and more and more terrorists have been infiltrating our country. Our Southern Border is insecure. Islamic Jihadist literature has been found in the washes used by Coyotes that bring in illegals in Arizona. Al Qaeda has set up an enclave in Mexico and established terrorist training camps there.

Historically, Muslims build mosques on the sites of their greatest conquests and they plan to do so again. Our Politically Correct government is willing to give the organization that wishes to build a mosque close to the site of Ground Zero, a sacred place of history for Americans, the money that they need to build the Muslim abomination.

We are still under attack.

The result of their attack is pictured below:

On the 10th anniversary of this vile and repulsive attack, let us take time to remember those who died there, the people in the buildings who jumped from the floors above the collapsed stairwells, the first responders who lost their lives trying to save the lives of others. Remember the families who lost loved ones that day and may not have any portion of their remains. Let us take time to pray for them.

And let us take the time to dedicate ourselves to
NEVER AGAIN!
