Rick Perry stands by Obama
immigration conspiracy theory

Yahoo News, by Eric Pfeiffer

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/7/2014 1:09:40 AM

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

Comments:
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.

Don´t know why I flipped onto Imus this morning but they played a clip of the Raddatz/Perry interview and then McGurk (sp?) and Imus talked, not about the hit job Raddatz waz trying to do, but about Perry´s glasses and how he changed them to try to look smarter.

They both commented that it didn´t work. I expect Imus to be shallow like that but not McGurk and I was disappointed in him.

Imagine Imus, a guy so smart that he ruined 80% of his life with drugs, commenting on whether someone else is smart or not.

I probably catch about 30 minutes of Imus per month by flipping through and he always is a jerk. Always.

My jury is out on Perry but I will say this, he has an awfully big mountain to climb. One he, for the most part, didn´t build.

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?

Rick Perry can risk everything and take charge, or not take charge, and combat this act of infamy, as no other American is quite as capable of doing. Our cabal of rulers has thrown thousands of children under the bus, in an act as brutal as anything our government has ever done. It´s all a test of the media indoctrinated stupidity of the peasants and the farmers, not unlike the early Marxist propaganda used by Lenin on the Russian farmers and peasants back in the early 1900´s. The road to enslavement.

#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.
So.
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.

Two questions.
The fence. American industry is really not clever enough to tackle Texas terrain regarding an effective fence deterrent?

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.

It is widely understood the puppet Soetero is controlled by the Soros Bush Rockefeller Murdoch new world order, but is Rick Perry under the same control? He speaks like maybe he is under someone´s closely guarded watch.
Where are the truly independent thinkers within the realm of the famous? Are there at least a few true patriots left in Hollywood? Isn´t THIS the time to come out and declare for liberty ? At least Sly, Bruce, Steven, especially Mel and Chuck!
If they all came out together (many more would also come)
they could take over damn new all media, New, social and the corrupted, communized NBC ABC CBS & CNNs

THAT´S the DREAM TEAM ! to change the world back to the anti corruption style of the one and only John Wayne !

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?

Gaza City - Hamas claimed it captured an Israeli soldier Sunday on the deadliest day yet in the battle between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza. Ron Prosor, Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, denied the report. "There´s no kidnapped Israeli soldier, and those rumors are untrue," he said. According to Abu Obeida, a spokesman for Hamas´ military wing, al-Qassam Brigades, the soldier was taken during an early morning operation. He provided the supposed soldier´s name and ID. "He is a prisoner, and if Zionists lie about the dead and wounded, then the fate of this soldier is their responsibility," the spokesman said.

The Lois G. Lerner emails released this month revealed a potentially huge loophole in federal open-records practices when an IRS tech staffer acknowledged that the agency doesn’t regularly store — and never checks — instant message chats as official government records. Analysts say there is no question that the Internal Revenue Service and all other federal agencies should be storing chats and even cellphone text messages that may constitute official government documents, but a check by The Washington Times suggests that hardly any agency is doing so. Of 17 agencies surveyed by The Times, just two said they had policies

House investigators suspect the Obama administration catered to trial lawyers in the run-up to a proposal that would allow generic drug makers at times to change their labels without FDA approval. Digging into the matter, skeptical Republicans asked the agency in writing last week how they settled on the plan, because the shift would expose the generic drug makers to lawsuits from which they currently are immune. “It seems to us that the proposed rule is not designed to address a health or safety related concern; instead, it is designed to placate special interest groups and increase lawsuits,” Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican and chairman

It’s a Bizarro Cinderella story. Nineteen-year-old Colorado girl, Shannon Conley, meets thirty-two year old Tunisian terrorist online. He asks her to marry him. She enthusiastically accepts and allegedly pledges to devote her life, (between most likely having innumerable babies), to using her nursing skills to bring wounded terrorists back to health. There’s only one little hitch. This April, the U.S. Marshals showed up at Denver International Airport and arrested Miss Conley before she could hop aboard a jet bound for the Middle East. Miss Conley lived only a few miles down the road from me. She attended our local high schools,

Sgt. Sean Carmeli, from South Padre Island, Texas – one of thirteen soldiers from the Golani brigade who died on Sunday in Gaza – had dual US, Israeli citizenship and was a lone soldier serving in Israel. Born to Israeli parents who live in the US, he was a returning citizen who stayed in Israel when his parents moved to Texas for work; he has two sisters, Or and Gal. According to The Michael Levin Lone Soldier Center´s Facebook page, Carmeli was a returning citizen who came to Israel to "strengthen, unite, and define what it means to be a Jew today." "Everything may be bigger in Texas, but the beaches and parties could not distract

A special intelligence adviser to Army Gen. David H. Petraeus during the 2007 troop surge says the terrorist leader now ruling over large swaths of Iraq and forcing Christians to convert to Islam has long been the most elusive big game for the U.S. “We had at least three times when we thought we killed [Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi],” said retired Army Col. Derek Harvey. “At least three times.” As an intelligence officer, Mr. Harvey acquired near-mythical status: He spent two decades studying Iraq, Saddam Hussein’s regime and the complex tribal networks that form the country’s political fabric. He had the ear of the top brass.

A hooded figure identifying himself only as Abu Obaida appeared on Palestinian television Sunday night to announce that the group had kidnapped an Israeli soldier. Israeli military experts immediately disputed the report. The Al Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, claimed Sunday night that they had captured an Israeli soldier named Shaul Aron. The group released his ID number and photos as evidence of his capture. The soldier was named as 21-year-old Shaul Aron, a Golani brigade infantryman. The Israeli military spokesperson refused to confirm or deny rumors that a soldier had been captured, and told BuzzFeed,

San Antonio - U.S. officials warned on Sunday that scammers are attempting to prey on the families of some of the tens of thousands of unaccompanied child immigrants crossing the border from Latin America, seeking money for phony travel costs. A Federal Bureau of Investigation official in San Antonio said investigators have uncovered two similar fraud schemes targeting family members of the children who are living illegally in the United States. "One fraud scheme involved individuals who claimed to be representing a charitable or non profit organization, which they claimed assists in processing and reuniting the children with

Talk radio host Glenn Beck criticized Fox News and Breitbart for their reporting of his plan to visit the border to bring food, soccer balls, and teddy bears to illegal immigrants on the southern border. Beck complained about a lack of coverage of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) joining his. “Nobody´s reading [The Blaze´s coverage of Ted Cruz going to border]. Our viewers and our readers are not even reading it. That should be the number-one retweeted story. If you like Ted Cruz [you should promote this story.] Where´s Breitbart on that story?

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

Convinced that their region has suffered as much Obama administration meddling as it can possibly stand, Israel and Egypt took the extraordinary step earlier this week of jointly rejecting requests by US Secretary of State John Kerry to involve himself in ceasefire talks with the terrorist group Hamas. Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks. He apparently made the announcement without first consulting either of the parties. The diplomats are convinced that their own

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) reportedly plans to dispatch the Texas National Guard to the U.S. border with Mexico, according to news reports. Perry will announce his plans Monday to mobilize some 1,000 guardsmen to the Rio Grande Valley to increase security at the border, according to the Monitor, a south Texas newspaper. The newspaper quoted a state senator and an internal memo it obtained from a state official’s office. Perry spokesman Felix Browne told The Washington Post he would neither confirm nor deny the report, but said all details will be given at a news conference at 2 p.m. Central time

Vice President Biden told Vladimir Putin that he did not believe the Russian leader had “a soul” during a visit to the Kremlin in 2011, the vice president said in a New Yorker magazine interview published Monday. Biden said the incident occurred while he was touring Putin’s office in the Kremlin. “I had an interpreter, and when he was showing me his office I said, ‘It’s amazing what capitalism will do, won’t it? A magnificent office!’ And he laughed. As I turned, I was this close to him,” Biden said, signaling that the two leaders were standing just inches apart. “I

She "really does need some time to think through this,” now that her memoir Hard Choices has been published, he said in an interview with CNN. "We´ve reached a point in our life when we think you really shouldn´t run for office if you don´t have a clear idea of what you can do and a unique contribution you can make and you can outline that," Clinton added.

At around noon on March 20 last year, Air Force One landed at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport for Barack Obama’s first presidential visit to Israel. The three-day trip had been billed as an Israeli reset—the newly reelected president’s bid for a clean slate with the Jewish state after four years of icy relations. Obama would lay a wreath at the tomb of Theodor Herzl, the father of Zionism. He would visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum. He would address an auditorium packed with Israeli students. And, of course, he would meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Before heading
