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?

The Republican Party’s top leader in Congress is catching flak for a comment that appears to call the jobless lazy – a comment that has rekindled an old challenge for the party: appearing insensitive or uncaring toward Americans who are poor or in financial difficulty. House Speaker John Boehner was asked after a speech last week to comment on a plan for addressing poverty – promoted by a Republican colleague, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. Speaker Boehner gave a response that was favorable toward Representative Ryan´s plan, but not so favorable about Americans’ work ethic.

The biggest pieces of the funding package will go to the New York City subway system and commuter rail systems in the surrounding region.

Islamic State attack on Iraqi base leaves

Baghdad - The army base in Iraq’s western Anbar province had been under siege by Islamic State militants for a week, so when a convoy of armored Humvees rolled up at the gate, the Iraqi soldiers at Camp Saqlawiyah believed saviors had arrived. But this was no rescue attempt. The vehicles were driven by militants on suicide missions, and within seconds on Sunday the base had become a bloody scene of multiple bombings. On Monday, a day after the attack, five survivors — including three officers — said that between 300 and 500 soldiers were missing and believed to be dead, kidnapped or in hiding.

Biden said Obama was determined to move ahead "with or without" Congress and "if they don´t get something done by the end of this year, the president´s going to do it." Biden´s remarks came as he and his wife, Jill, hosted a Hispanic Heritage Month reception Monday at their Naval Observatory residence. He honored Hispanic education administrators and counselors, calling them "heroes in the

A jihadist group in North Africa aligned with the Islamic State claimed responsibility for the kidnapping of a Frenchman in a mountainous region of Algeria, hours after the Islamic State called for attacks on Westerners. In the video released Monday, the little-known group Jund al-Khilafah said France had 24 hours to halt attacks on the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, or see its citizen executed. The kidnapping — confirmed by the French government — was the first of a Westerner by an Islamic State-aligned group outside Syria. If copied, the tactic of kidnapping Westerners to pressure their their governments could expand the conflict

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS. Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Camp Edwards - Police and military officials are searching for three officers from the Afghanistan National Army who were engaged in a training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col.

Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

Last week, esteemed doctor and one of our ObamaCare Architect Overlords penned a column for the Atlantic that should win a Pulitzer Prize for passive-aggressive shaming. Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn´t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, "Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare." Emanuel even includes a monstrous but brightly colored graph that is meant to tell anyone over 75 that their "last contribution" to society likely occurred more than a decade ago. Good God. The phrase "the banality of evil" gets bandied about a

Note: Read the Hillary Clinton-Saul Alinsky Letters here. Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

President Obama is supporting the Secret Service in the wake of a deeply troubling incident in which a disturbed man jumped the White House fence, sprinted across the North Lawn, and actually entered the White House Friday evening. The man, 42 year-old Omar Gonzalez, had a folding knife in his pocket and had left 800 rounds of ammunition in his car not far from the White House. Gonzalez had also drawn the attention of authorities at least twice a few weeks ago — once in Virginia, when he was found with a sniper rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, and a map with

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

Lois Lerner says she is no Jeffrey Dahmer. The former Internal Revenue Service official referenced the infamous cannibalistic serial killer as she broke her silence for the first time about last year’s IRS scandal. Lerner told the website Politico that she has been the recipient of threats and hate mail, describing how one person called her “the worst person ever in the United States.” “I just thought, ‘Boy, worse than Jeffrey Dahmer?’” Lerner quipped. Lerner, who led the tax-exempt division of the IRS, was forced out of the agency after she found herself at the center of the scandal over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups

AUSTIN, Texas -- At an event today at the University of Texas Austin campus, Texas Governor Rick Perry reaffirmed his support of allowing illegal immigrant students to pay in-state tuition at Texas colleges and universities, while U.S. citizens from other states continue to pay higher out-of-state tuition rates. Perry made his remarks in a "One-on-One Conversation" with Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith at the Texas Tribune Festival, an annual event organized by the online media outlet. Breitbart Texas made several queries to Governor Perry´s press office for comment, but as of press time,

Fraternities at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, must start accepting women and all residential fraternities must become fully co-educational over the next three years, the school’s Board of Trustees has ruled. The decision was made “with equality and inclusion in mind,” school President Michael Roth and Trustee Chairman Joshua Boger wrote in an email to students on Monday, Business Insider reported. “Our residential Greek organizations inspire loyalty, community and independence. That’s why all our students should be eligible to join them.” The school has focused on issues with Greek life ever since a woman filed a lawsuit against Wesleyan two years ago

Gen. Michael Nagata is promising to build a new force to destroy ISIS, but lawmakers worry he has been given an impossible mission. As lawmakers prepared to take a risky and fateful vote on Obama’s plan to train and equip the Syrian rebels, the man who assured them it could be done was Gen. Michael Nagata, Obama’s point man for the mission to build an ISIS-killing army in Syria. There are skeptics both inside and outside the government who doubt Obama’s new plan to arm the Syrian rebels can work. First of all, the administration has said for years that the moderate
