Rick Perry stands by Obama
immigration conspiracy theory

Yahoo News, by Eric Pfeiffer

Original Article

Texas Gov. Rick Perry repeated an accusation that undocumented children coming to the U.S. from Latin American countries might be a result of “ulterior motives” from President Obama. “I have to believe that when you don’t respond in any way that you are either inept or you have some ulterior motive of which you are functioning from,” Perry said during an interview Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “I don’t believe he particularly cares whether or not the border of the United States is secure,” (Snip) “This president, I will suggest, is either totally and absolutely either inept, or making some decisions that are not in the best interests of

I happen to catch this smackdown with Martha Raddatz, who kept trying to cut Gov. Perry off after baiting him with various forms of the same question. And Perry, a proud Texan, stood by his guns and wouldn´t be rattled by the 0bama sycophant. A good preview of how our GOP candidates need to ignore the soundbites the LSM want and get out their own message.

Exposing the bad intentions and ulterior motives of Democrats is the single most important thing any elected Republican can do, bar none. Thank you, Gov. Perry. You´ll go far if you keep this straight talk up. Very far.

I have been watching, praying and thinking a lot about what is going on with this immigration situation. I have come to the opinion that 99% of the reasoning behind the elite establishments´ push for immigration has nothing to do with humanitarian purposes. As far as I can see it is centered around what money the new immigrants can generate for the supporters, or how much power new immigrants can give to the supporters. As far as obama´s reasoning, he sees this as his golden opportunity to watch Cloward-Piven in action.

...one simple sentence that describes the enemy we deal with. It needs to be drilled into the minds of the masses...

I understand Perry´s strategy, I think. He is running for President. Every word is now measured and consultant-tested. Personally, I do not think he knows what to do. Millions of Americans are watching this and they see no organized PASSIONATE (as in show some anger) Republican response to the obliteration of the Texas-Mexico border. What a Perry said was fine but I think most folks know Obama´s motives are evil. What they are waiting to hear is one person criticize Mexico, express anger at disease endangering AMERICAN children, secrecy and lack of accountability about where all the buses and planes are going, worry for overtaxed stressed-out Americans who can´t find a job, etc. The GOP is FAILING again to boldly, consistently and daily get the talking points coordinated and sound like the conservative champion we need.

Stick to your guns, Gov. Perry, and tell it like it is. This POTUS is complicit in the encouraging and enabling of thousands to illegally enter our country, and not for humanitarian reasons. He is using poor, desperate women and children to create political pressure and chaos. Keep calling him on it!!!

As usual, we have John McCain claiming that Republicans rejected border control AS IF IT HAD BEEN A STAND ALONE OPTION and NOT connected to a gazillion other amnesty provisions.

Is McCain just that stupid or does he think we are ?

Hard to tell, but just wish Arizona would do us all a favor and bring him home.

#4, You hit the nail squarely on its head! Well done! I could not agree with you more. Our country is burning and Republicans show no urgency to put out the fire. If this crisis doesn´t light a fire under them, I don´t know if anything will. We know this influx was a planned invasion by Obama and if the press were curious I am sure they could ferret out the information from a source in Mexico. They don´t want to know because they are following Obama´s narrative just like the drones they are.

No, No. 2. Obama knows he can get no money from these illegals, especially the children. Their value to him is that they will complete his ruin of people like us. He is creating a whole new population.

This is what the Labour Party did in England. They brought in immigrants to break up English solidarity and prevent them from winning elections.

I think Perry has done a good job as governor and has certainly helped the Texas economy by encouraging new businesses to move into our state.

That said, with almost 14 years as governor, he has had plenty of time to pass a law revoking the business license of Texas companies who hire illegal aliens. First a warning, then a significant fine, then lose your license to do business in the state.

As I´ve said in previous posts, it´s easy for Perry to sound conservative in front of the camera. Let´s see some serious action.

#12 is absolutely right in my opinion. This is about destroying the only group Obama sees as the enemy - conservatives. We´ll be outvoted forever by the money suckers and the rats will be in power forever. Our spirit will be eventually be broken and we´ll be resigned to being bureaucracy´s minions - just like the once proud English.

This is what the fundamental transformation of America looks like.

The headline does not accurately reflect what Governor Perry said. He said it is an either/or situation - ineptitude or ulterior motive.

Anyone with half a brain had already come to that conclusion and was probably leaning toward option #2 because Obie always seems to have an ulterior motive. Disciples of Saul Alinsky do have that. It guides all that they do.

Finally a Republican leader stands up to ridicule Captain Zero’s open border policy. Where are the rest of the Republican leaders? If you maintain open borders long enough, you eventually have no country that anyone would want to live in and that would stop the illegal immigration, but it would also destroy America.

I watched the video after reading this article. Martha maintained that ´constipated´ expression during the whole thing - how painful is that to watch? It was like watching ´Beauty and the Beast´ - Martha being the beast, of course. Perry made perfect sense and stated his case brilliantly. You could tell she was very upset about it.

I believe I see a pattern: requests for more security to the white house never gets you anything, so you better step up and make it happen.
I hear the feds are not allowed to return fire, but the Texas lawmen can, so the illegals are running when they see them.

Gov. Perry may have good intentions and a great way with words, but we don´t see anything he has done to stem the tide of illegals, in all the years he has been in Austin. Au contraire. Here´s what we do see: First, people keep arriving because they get hired for low wages that keep many businesses in the black and their owners rich. If you keep luring them with jobs, they will keep coming; they are motivated -- they don´t care about politics, they just grab any job with false IDs and go from there. I´ve seen them not only work, but start their business, buy a house, drive two or three cars, and raise their kids, all without legal papers. And second, people WILL keep arriving not only because it´s good for the businesses that hire them, but because Americans don´t give a rip and don´t do anything about it. As opposed to us who live in border states, most parts of the country are not [yet] touched by the illegal problem so there´s no interest in it. All you need is to look at the polling data; immigration sits on the very bottom the totem pole of concerns. Like Rome invaded by the neighboring tribes in its day, there will be no solution to the invasion unless/until the citizens take responsibility for it and organize; a civil revolt will do it, if enough people participate. Nothing else has, so far.

There is no doubt about that comment. If you start looking at all the pieces there seems to be a puzzle picture forming.

Look at the stories you read here every day. Government buy large amounts of ammo, secret facilities, arming police forces with military grade weapons and vehicles, attempts to disenfranchise americans from the second amendment, government send swat teams and threatening military response to range grass war, government not protecting the borders.

How can all the pieces not form a picture to this puzzle?

#5, #12 – Using children as a self-serving means to an end may not end well for each and every individual who is a willing participant in such an effort—and that includes those in the mainstream media already guilty of selective reporting that put this country on the horrific path of destruction it now faces: “And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’” ~ Matthew 25:40

Yes, # 23/25, Rick Perry can do more than dub the US government for law enforcement overtime. He can put the state police to block the roads to "stand in the door" to confront the Border Patrol and Obama´s dereliction of duty. It´s all about the "optics" and public opinion. Public opinion does not support dismantling the border, if polls are to be believed. Otherwise Perry is just another in a long line of tough talking Texas politicians, all hat and hot air.

´´Don´t mess with Texas´´, my youoknowwhat. If Rick Perry is the personification of that phrase, it´s now become a joke.

Like Jan Brewer, the only thing Rick Perry´s going to do is talk, and talk some more -- and hope you´re all impressed enough to forget his words the last time he ran for president -- when he sought to smear all Americans who wanted a fence, wanted employer verification, and wanted immigration laws reasonably enforced as ´´bigots´´ and ´´heartless´´.
Two years ago Rick Perry was still defending his position AGAINST any kind of fence, as well as AGAINST using employer verification.

Don´t mess with Texas? What´s he planning to do? Talk your ear off? Warn respectfully with a sterner look on his face? Stomp his foot? Use bigger words? Judging by Perry´s LACK of action, think Obama&Co are worried?
If ever proven wrong, will be so happy to eat these words, but it´s not looking likely to happen.

If Rick Perry had it in him to take any kind of courageous action (instead of just courageous-sounding campaign rhetoric ala John McCain), he´d probably be doing it right now. He´d have probably started putting some of those words into action a year ago, or THREE.
Rick Perrys´ ´´conservatism´´ IS good for Texas business.
Good luck pinning any hopes on Rick Perry. It seems he´s also in the bag for the ChambersOfCommerce (not Texas) and he´s been there since at least ´06.
It´s really all too bad. He looks good with the glasses. Useless little... whatever (something Yiddish).

I´m with Perry on the fence. It´s a stupid idea for Texas terrain, although it might work for New Mexico and parts of Arizona. I´m not sure what being "in the bag for the Chambers of Commerce" exactly signifies. Most GOPers get donations from the CoC because Republicans are very pro-business. Yup, Rick Perry is pro-business.

No one is required to like him, however.

Last post.

The Texas border with Mexico is the Rio Grande River. The terrain is deep canyons, rocky ravines, mountains and, in addition, ranchers on each side of the river need access to the water for their livestock. The experts who have surveyed the border and offered their opinions almost all state that a wide border of as much as 100 feet would be required on the north side of the river. That would obviously block off livestock access.

Perry has quoted the Department of Homeland Security as stating that only about half of the inquiries to E-Verify get accurate responses. He has said over and over he´s all for a verification system, that such a system is vital, but that E-Verify is so unreliable it´s useless.

It´s not a conspiracy at all. The Federal Government released a Request For Proposal (RFP) for contractors that could handle an influx of unaccompanied children, which were expected to number 60,000-70,000.

This RFP was released in January 2014.

It´s not a conspiracy. It´s a fact that they are actively destroying this country.

There is no "theory" about it. The government advertised for transport for unaccompanied minors, clear back in January. This was a planned operation, to overwhelm the system, flood the country with illegal aliens and who knows what else - Gang members, terrorists, etc. Transporting minors across state lines for illegal purposes is a major infraction of the law. Who is going to prosecute Hussein and his minions for this criminality?

Let´s see who votes for $$$ for Obama´s plan to allow 3 million illegals to stay. Congress should be cutting aid to Mexico & boycotting all products until they seal their borders. My guess is the president of Mexico & Obama are in this together. These people could not get through Mexico without both president´s approval.

Obama has been positioning himself as the champion of amnesty in an attempt to suck up as many Hispanic votes as possible for the liberal Democrats. In that respect, if you wanted to tug on the heart strings of America to buy sympathy for the illegal alien cause, which illegal aliens would you put out there for the nation to see, women and children?

Liberals tend to devote a significant portion of their daily lives to proving how not racist they are. One particularly expedient way of doing this is to declare that something a conservative has said or done is totally racist, and then to place oneself in opposition to the thing that was racist: “See, I’m not a racist!” As result, the List of Things That Are Racist has grown incomprehensibly long.

Turkey approves military operations

Turkey´s parliament voted 298-98 on Thursday in favor of launching military operations across the border in Syria and Iraq, in a bid to combat the self-proclaimed "Islamic State" (IS). Despite opposition from two parties, many had viewed passage of the motion as a foregone conclusion. The legislation comes as IS attacks have caused thousands to flee the Syrian town officially known as Ayn al-Arab, but called Kobani by its Kurdish majority population, across the border from Turkey, despite airstrikes by the US-led coalition on the group´s positions in Syria since last week and in Iraq since early August.

Who’ll be the next attorney general? Washington’s favorite parlor game is filling Cabinet vacancies; I like playing as much as the next pundit. (Keep reading!) Still, the more telling question is: Why are we playing this game at all? Why wasn’t the White House, which knew for months that Eric H. Holder Jr. was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holder’s foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this departure more intelligently — rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate?

The average 1.79 million viewers between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m., Monday through Friday, gave FNC its first quarter atop the dial since the Iraq War broke out in 2003. Expanding that block by an hour,

A man with a gun that the Secret Service did not know about rode in an elevator with President Obama during his visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Sept. 16. The previously undisclosed breach, confirmed by two sources familiar with the case, raises new questions about the agency´s ability to protect the president. The incident, which took place three days before an intruder jumped a fence and sprinted inside the White House, involved a failure in Secret Service advance work to prevent an armed man from coming into close proximity with Obama while he was visiting the CDC to receive a

Washington - The Obama Administration announced Tuesday that it will pick up the bill for immigration attorneys who will be assigned to unaccompanied children from Central America and elsewhere who are stopped at the U.s. border. Dallas and Houston are two of a handful of cities where the money will be spent, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a phone call to The News Tuesday. The program starts today and will be funded with $9 million between now and the end of the next fiscal year. In all, the funds are estimated to be enough to pay for lawyers for more than 2,600 children.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
