Texas governor refuses to shake
with Obama over failure to deal with
immigration crisis amid Dem fears it
is president´s ´Katrina moment´

Daily Mail [UK], by Francesca Chambers

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/8/2014 1:06:23 PM

Texas Governor Rick Perry is refusing an offer from the White House to meet President Barack Obama on the tarmac for a handshake when he lands in Texas tomorrow. ´I appreciate the offer to greet you at Austin-Bergstrom Airport, but a quick handshake on the tarmac will not allow for a thoughtful discussion regarding the humanitarian and national security crises enveloping the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas,´ Perry said yesterday in a letter to the president declining his invitation. ´I would instead offer to meet with you at any time during your visit to Texas for a substantive meeting

Comments:
Rick Perry - not just another pretty face. Denying Obama the chance to get a photo of the two shaking hands is brilliant.

You watch, Perry will be called a redneck racist, but we won´t hear a peep about all those democrats on the ballot this November that won´t even be seen with the big jerk.

Totally unfair comparison. Bush did nothing wrong (that anyone has documented) over Katrina. He had bad optics for a day or two. The badness concerning Katrina started weeks after Bush was castigated, and persists today: a vastly over-bureaucratized FEMA.

In contrast, the flood of alien children is a direct result of Obama´s attitudes, philosophies and executive orders -- now amplified by his total ineptness.

The terrorist known as obama had his "Katrina moment" years ago and in the same relative area when he closed down all of the oil wells in the Gulf and let China have the oil. The news media just hasn´t noticed and continues to hold their hands over their eyes today. How many Katrinas does it take to invoke an impeachment? Apparently, the answer is in the thousands because that´s how many times obama has screwed America.

You go, Guv Perry. I wouldn´t shake that hand either. No telling where it´s been.

I´ve never understood this "Katrina Moment" BS. What better way to see the magnitude of the damage than viewing it from the air? What was he supposed to do - get in a boat that could be used for rescuing survivors? President Bush got hosed on Katrina then and is still getting hosed to this day.

I wouldn´t shake that hand either, who knows where that hand has been. Perhaps Reggie knows. A smart move by Perry now would be to initiate the procedures required for Texas to withdraw from the Union.

This followed by the announcement that all illegal border crossers, not formally legal citizens of the USA, would be kicked out of Texas after they served jail time, and after Texas withdrew. After they get out of jail, they get free train tickets to Washington DC.

Failing that, they should purge their voting rolls of all people who cannot prove they were born in the USA or who cannot prove citizenship. Then they should enforce voter ID. Let the Marxists take that to the Supreme Court.

I haven´t seen this take yet:

The law that is being used to prevent the instant deportation of the minors from the non-contiguous countries was reauthorized by a Democrat House and Senate led by respectively, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and signed by President Bush. I believe it was passed unanimously. The intent of the bill was to prevent human trafficking victims being returned to their pimps. It´s called the "William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Re-authorization Act of 2008". It has nothing to do with what we are dealing with now. The President, if he so chooses (which he won´t) or the Attorney General (also a "No") could state that this Law does not apply(which it doesn´t).

No, this one sits squarely in the laps of both parties but the President has the power to change this. If he doesn´t, it´s his baby!

The Katrina disaster was caused by a governor and a mayor who didn´t perform their duties correctly.

This is a president not performing his duties correctly.

Support for the terrorist organization Hamas has skyrocketed in Judea, Samaria and Gaza according to a new poll, after Hamas "skyrocketed" Israel with a massive missile barrage and terror war in Operation Protective Edge.

All right, so it was only a straw poll conducted among viewers of yesterday´s BBC Sunday Morning Live debate programme: 95 percent of Britons think multiculturalism has been a failure. But as majority verdicts go, it was a pretty resounding one--and it was delivered despite the BBC´s best efforts to muddy the waters, first by wheeling out two of the nation´s Multi Culti Apologist big guns Owen Jones and Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, and second by pretending that multiculturalism means something other than what it actually means.

"Now I believe for the first time there will not be war". This was an English diarist in September 28, 1938, slightly less than a year before the Second World War broke out, writing on the eve of the Munich agreement. Of course, we all know with hindsight that you would have had to be an imbecile to have imagined such a thing by that stage in the advance of Nazi Germany. Had Hitler not already made his hostile intentions perfectly clear in Mein Kampf, in his aggressive rearmament in breach of the Versailles treaty terms, his Austrian Anschluss, his

Gruesome evidence has emerged of attempted ethnic cleansing by Isis, with Amnesty International claiming that the terrorist group has turned northern Iraq into ´blood-soaked killing fields´. The London-based rights group says that Isis, also known as the Islamic State (IS), is trying to wipe out ethnic and religious minorities with mass summary killings that could amount to war crimes. It fears that vulnerable communities such as Assyrian Christians, Yazidis, Turkmen and Shabaks ´risk being wiped off the map of Iraq´. Amnesty has released a series of terrifying accounts from survivors of massacres, who describe how men and boys have been

Vice President Joe Biden told a group of supporters on Monday that ´it´s time to take back America´ so that they can get an ´equal share.´ Both Biden and President Barack Obama dusted off the economic populist message that propelled them to a second term and hit the road on Labor Day traveling to the union friendly cities of Detroit, Michigan, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to gin up support for a minimum wage increase. Though a government-mandated raise in workers´ wages has virtually no chance of passing Congress during the 12 days the legislature will be in session before Election Day,

London could be the scene of a Mumbai-style terrorist "spectacular" if Islamist jihadists get their way, British security chiefs have warned. There is growing concern that a list of "soft" targets is being drawn up, and that weapons and explosives have already been smuggled into the country. The Sun is reporting that the SAS has moved part of its anti-terror team to a forward base near London, amid concerns that a prolonged attack may be staged in that city.

U.S. President Barack Obama has been urged to take decisive action against the Islamic State amid concerns the terror group will target America. Obama was told by security experts that the country is facing a growing threat from militants, who have already taken control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq. He was advised that these fighters are now looking toward the U.S. or Western Europe as their next targets, where they would likely ´kill with abandon´.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has urged negotiators meeting in the Belarus capital, Minsk, to make an "immediate ceasefire" their priority. Some 2,600 people have died in eastern Ukraine since fighting began in April. The conflict broke out after Russia´s annexation of Ukraine´s southern Crimea peninsula in March.

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.
