Barry and Brewer’s Border Brouhaha

Barry and Brewer’s Border Brouhaha

Jeannie DeAngelis

Governor Jan Brewer has requested President Obama help secure the border with Mexico by reassigning National Guard helicopters from other states and training missions to Arizona.

Governor Brewer’s Border Security Plan calls for additional covert National Guard reconnaissance, increased National Guard aerial patrolling, annual National Guard military exercises conducted in regions along the border, increased economic and logistical support for local law enforcement, and improved border county interaction and federal agency partnership.  The Governor’s plan also calls for substantial expansion of the Joint Counter Narco-Terrorism Task Force (JCNTF).

Governor Brewer made the request in a letter to Obama, dated the day after the state dinner for Mexican president Felipe Calderón. Brewer must have felt if 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue could be so heavily guarded by security, secret service and ID checkers for a state dinner and after party, why not some choppers to keep drug runners, gangs, illegals and violent criminals out of Arizona?

While attempting to enforce immigration law in Arizona the governor claims to have only, “…four OH-58 Kiowa helicopters available for border missions,” at her disposal.  Apparently, “choppers are deployed overseas and others are reserved for training missions.” 

Maybe there are extra helicopters hanging around the premises left over from Beyonce’s Margarita and Felipe performance on the South Lawn of the White House that could be freed up for border reconnaissance missions

In addition to recently requesting air support Governor Jan Brewer also took the disingenuous, inappropriate nature of Obama’s immigration statements and sentiments to task. 

Daily Jan Brewer stares down Mexican banditos, so publicly spanking Barry for misstatements, bad attitudes and misrepresentation of the Arizona bill, was no big deal for a governor determined to protect a border state and uphold the rule of law, and well she should.

The Obama administration has distorted and politicized the Arizona law, as well as using a serious issue to divide the nation along racial lines.   The President also incorporated Arizona’s attempt to close unsecured borders into the butt of juvenile jokes.

And while Barack Obama may host a great party, and even graciously share the stage with a rat, the Arizona governor felt Barry’s obnoxious jocularity when referring to situations where drug runners murder American citizens, should be addressed.

Soon after Jan Brewer publicly pointed out Barack’s less than stellar performance as a national leader, the governor then “requested additional helicopters be freed up from training missions or taken from other states and assigned to the southwestern border.”

Now that’s a lady with chutzpah!

However, after going toe-to-toe with Barack, who seems more willing to agree with foreign leaders, criticizing American laws and statutes, than supporting a governor whose state is overrun with illegal criminals – the additional helicopter appeal doesn’t look hopeful.

 “The governor acknowledges her request may be unpopular with other governors, but she says she believes there are legitimate national interests in sending more aircraft to Arizona.” 

Governor Jan Brewer’s request will not only be “unpopular” with other governors, but detested by the Secretary of Homeland Security, likely mocked by the “misdirected” Barack Obama and if given a platform, Mexican border enforcer, Felipe de Jesús Calderón Hinojos could add his two cents. 

Reality is, chances are better for Tareq and Michaele Salahi getting into a White House function a second time then Jan Brewer getting one scintilla of assistance from the federal government. It’s unlikely the Arizona governor’s letter, request or existence will be acknowledged by the President, let alone one additional OH-58 Kiowa granted to assist in Jan Brewer’s endeavor to secure the United States border.

Obama and the New Normal

Obama and the New Normal

May 22nd, 2010

By Robin of Berkeley, American Thinker

 Obama is defining our culture with his vindictive assaults on individuals

The human brain is a complicated organ. It can be infinitely pliable but also maddeningly rigid.

Humans can be slow to recognize signs of imminent disaster. While red flags are flapping wildly in the wind, the person ignores any and all warnings.

But the brain can be highly suggestible, too, easily controlled and shaped by advertisers and spin doctors. Thus, after countless ads, a person associates soda with Coke, search engines with Google. And after having “Yes we can,” burned into their neural pathways, all hope and change is connected to Obama.  

That’s why it’s crucial to notice all the “firsts.” Because once something is repeated often enough, it becomes the New Normal.

Decades ago, the first rap song that celebrated beating “ho’s” and shooting cops was shocking. But after the umpteenth song, the lyrics may no longer startle. 

But while things have been going downhill for decades, ever since Obama arrived on the scene, the assaults have come fast and furiously. First it was the trashing of Hillary. When her abuse was pooh-poohed by those who could have done something about it, like Obama himself, that just emboldened the radicals. Their getting away with (soul) murder led to even more sexually threatening behavior toward Sarah Palin.

Another example: It used to be off-limits for the president and Congress to target private citizens. Not any longer. It’s now open season on anyone who dares to disagree.

Obama Thinks Constitution Flawed Without Redistribution Of Wealth

Obama Thinks Constitution Flawed Without Redistribution Of Wealth

October 27, 2008 · 23 Comments

I cannot even believe this.  First of all, I heard the fact that Obama thought the Constitution was flawed being discussed on MSNBC of all places.  Most shocking since they are his biggest media cheering section.  Even more glaring are the words that Obama uttered in a 2001 interview on Chicago’s public radio station WBEZ FM and here they are with my emphasis:

If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed people, so that now I would have the right to vote. I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order and as long as I could pay for it I’d be OK.  But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it’s been interpreted, and the Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.

 And that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court-focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that.

Keep in mind that Barack Obama has been a law professor on the Constitution.  This is a document he has spent alot of time studying and yet he completely misses the point.  Our Founding Fathers said that we are indowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights.  Those are automatic and the Constitution and other founding documents merely defined those rights so that the government could never take those away.  It is not a document of “negative liberties”.  The Constitution protects us from a tyrannical government.  Only someone who wants to lead a tyrannical government would say the above words.  Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as the Declaration speaks of has nothing to do with redistribution of wealth.  And the courts are not meant to be radical.  Keep that in mind as you consider that Obama may get the chance to appoint three Supreme Court justices and countless local judges.  And keep in mind that the Warren Court has been the most liberal court this country ever had.

Obama’s spokesman Bill Burton had this to say, “In this interview back in 2001, Obama was talking about the civil rights movement – and the kind of work that has to be done on the ground to make sure that everyone can live out the promise of equality. Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with Obama’s economic plan or his plan to give the middle class a tax cut. It’s just another distraction from an increasingly desperate McCain campaign.”  It truly is amazing how gullible the Obama campaign thinks Americans are by constantly calling truth that shines the light on a Marxist Obama “distractions”.  This is everything!  The economy, the wars, abortion…none of that matters if we lose our freedom.  What an Obama presidency will change those words to is: The economy becomes redistribution of wealth, wars become Martial Law here in America with boots on our streets and terrorists able to destroy us and abortion becomes Eugenics where only the best get to live.  Liberals love to compare President Bush to Hitler.  They’ve got the wrong man.
