Gov. Perry Asks Obama To Do One Thing
About the Border Crisis, Which Would Help,
But Which Obama Is Certain Not To Do

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

After meeting with President Obama on the border crisis in Dallas today, Texas Gov. Rick Perry issued the following statement. In it, he lists several measures that the president should take to secure the border. Here is the governor’s full statement. DALLAS – Gov. Rick Perry today met with President Barack Obama to discuss the ongoing humanitarian and national security crises occurring along the Texas-Mexico border. In the meeting, Gov. Perry urged the president to undertake the necessary steps to secure the border and ease the crises. “Five hundred miles south of here in the Rio Grande Valley there is a humanitarian

Instead of acknowledging that his own policies have played any role in the crisis, he instead blamed Republicans and demanded that they do exactly what he says, or he will take no action on his own to fix the problem. Some people might see that as extortion.

Everyone sees it as extortion. Only Democrats refuse to call it that, but everyone knows what it is, following a well-established pattern of juvenility.

Everyone also knows that our POTUS is a ideological pugilist whose first recourse is revenge and adolescent temper tantrums. How did such a spiritually acned teenager come to run this great country? All he does is hang out with his photo-op buds and slam doors.

God does have His reasons, but I´m not that sure I want to live long enough to learn what they are, considering that ordinary Americans are helpless right now.

Things can change, though, when men and women of honor and courage decide "enough".

FTA "talk of “comprehensive immigration reform” always causes a spike in illegal crossings; because of how the 2008 William Wilberforce Act is being implemented; and because of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals....DACA is his policy, created via executive order. He could rescind it any time he wants. He won’t."

The southern border is what the Cloward Piven Strategy looks like in practice. I live in Texas and we are being invaded by illegal aliens with all kinds of communicable diseases and they are being sent all over the country. How I despise obama, the Democrats and the msm for this purposeful destruction of the country.

Poor Rick Perry...he´s the governor of a major state, a likely presidential candidate, and his response to the "crisis" on his border is a whiny press release and a hand out for Federal money to pay law enforcement overtime. He was suckered at the meeting he demanded with Obama, getting nothing but a horselaugh. And Obama is incompetent? Let Perry be Perry...he ain´t no Reagan.

This entire past week has been a lead up of reports that perry invited obama to tour the border with the governor or there would be no meeting. Now there was a meeting with the beggar governor and king obama.

#5, you are mistaken. Governor Perry invited Obama to tour the border. Also, Perry refused to meet Obama´s plane in Austin for a tarmac handshake. Perry said he wanted a meeting, not just a handshake. An agreement was reached for Perry to greet the president elsewhere and to be granted a meeting.

#4 goes from Perry thread to Perry thread saying the same things. We get it, #4. You don´t like anything about Rick Perry. Your privilege, of course.

#6 is correct and I too must disagree with sour perceptions of Perry. This meeting (as opposed to a tarmac photo op) had to take place to reveal harder evidence of Obama´s truculence in this entire issue. Even LoFos and NoFos are becoming perturbed about the southern border being washed away by an admitted tsunami of illegals (with highly contagious and serious diseases); the more the situation is brought to their attention, the more they will turn away from Obama. But they can´t do that unless someone like Perry forces it into the news, time after time.

In this particular news piece, we discover that Obama "blamed Republicans [for the border problem] and demanded that they do exactly what he says, or he will take no action on his own to fix the problem."

Even NoFos can see that threat for what it is: Obama won´t do anything about the problem unless he gets the $3.7 billion he demands for extra judges, etc. Why are judges needed? Does it really take a law degree to figure out whether a person is in the country illegally and must be deported? (Like the gang members who freely admit to torture and killings.)

I salute Perry for keeping his cool and eliciting Obama´s threat--which basically says "Do what I tell you or I´m taking my ball and going home. So there" (emphasized by a foot stamp).

obamais doing this so he can blame the Republicans for not giving him money to control the border...he doesn´t need the money..all obama has to do is tell the border patrol to close the border. he could also bus the people back to the country they came from. i.e. President Dwight Eisenhower..1954 Operation Wetback..sorry folks that´s what it was called. thousands of illgals came over the border..Ike then had them bused back to Mexico. It can be done, and the president has the authority to do so. obama wont, and he is the one at fault. NOT the Republicans its all about politics.
another side note. these illegals are not coming over the border for jobs..they are here to live off the taxpayer. They don´t wrk in their own country..they sure are not going to work here.. and obama has made it very nice for people that don´t work.to live off the taxpayers

Frankly, it is time that the governors of these states DEMAND that these facilities be open for inspection. Gov. Perry should put the Texas National Guard on the border. Let Obama arrest him. The only way to stop Obama is to flaunt his edicts. Until Americans decide that enough is enough this lawless behavior will continue. Unfortunately, we can´t look to the Republicans in Washington DC to support defying the President. It is going to take a few regular Americans to stand up and say, no more.

Where are the patriots working in these centers? Some of these workers need to be whistleblowers. A few pictures of the actual mess that is unfolding would open a few eyes. Surely, they don´t agree with what is going on. Some of them need to break the blackout imposed by this imperial president. The American people deserve to know exactly what their boy king is bringing into their neighborhoods.

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing. - Edmund Burke

Re. the above comments about Gov Perry. I am definitely not anti-Perry, but My opinion is that Perry was rolled by zero. The meeting was totally on zero´s terms. What difference does it make whether the handshake was at Austin or Dallas. The optics were the same. Perry waiting dutifully at the bottom of the ramp while the king struts down and slaps him on tha back.

Videos of the group meeting at Love field showed Perry sitting sullenly at the far corner of the table while zero was yukking it up with the Dallas mayor.

Just my observations.

The message that was sent to the low info voters was that Perry was refusing to shake President Obama´s hand. In fact, one comment I overheard was, Is he afraid the black will rub off? I´m married to a Dem low info voter and am regularly astounded by how stupid the elites think they are. Evidently the programming is strong.

What would you have had Perry do, #16? I guess he could have taken an icepick to Air Force 1´s tires or spit on Obama´s shoes.

Rick Perry is the governor of Texas behaving civilly and as courteously as the office of the presidency deserves under awkward circumstances. I believe Perry got the most facetime possible against Obama´s sullen refusal to substantially divert from his frantic fund-raising activities in Austin and Dallas. The "roundtable" meeting wasn´t part of Obama´s original schedule.

Perry, understand one thing, the First amateur clown looks you in the eye, turns around and does the opposite of what he just told you. Read Ron Kessler´s book about First Families. But this one takes the cake. I believe he is also full of drugs and has the attention span of an amoebae. The former community organizer is a very stupid man you would not hire to polish your shoes, he would be too dumb to find the shoes. We are lurching from one crisis to another. Some, like the border crisis, created to tear our attention away from the last scandal. I say have this barf bag resign. Well, we know there is no Santa!

Does anyone remember when Gov Brewer met Obama on the tarmac a year or so ago and all you saw was she in his face pointing her finger? All the MSM could talk about was how she was so disrespectful to Obama, etc. NO matter how valid her argumanets, she lost to the optics of some governor disrespecting Prez. Obama.

Let´s face it - Obama, for all his spritually acned teenager temper tantrums, has the ultimate in optics with Air Force 1, the Seal of the POTUS, the young Marines in dress blues, etc. to overwhelm anyone to his advantage.

Bottom line - our country is being overrun and we´re arguing optics.

Under longstanding US immigration law every illegal alien in the USA, even those caught right after they jump over the border fence has the right to a deportation hearing. When the border patrol catches a non criminal illegal alien they must explain that right to the apprehended alien, along with advising the alien that he or she can waive the right to a deportation hearing and voluntarily return to their home country. That is basic.

Obama and the liberal Democrats are claiming that the William Wilberforce anti trafficking law, a liberal Democrat designed amendment to the immigration law that was meant to detour forced sex trafficking that was passed back during the G.W. Bush era now covers all the tens of thousands of young illegal aliens coming in across the borderline and that law requires that every one of them be accorded a formal deportation hearing, and that each of them must have a government appointed immigration lawyer at the hearing. If that is the case, and that continues, none of those young illegal aliens will ever be deported, since the initial hearing, because of the numbers involved, will not be held for years, and to go through the complicated immigration court process along with later appeals processes have been liberalized beyond belief could take a decade, and ultimately always favor the illegal alien, who has been paying his or her immigration lawyer all that time, staying in the USA in the end.

The immigration laws and the highly esoteric immigration court system set up to favor immigration lawyers and illegal aliens needs to be scrapped, and a new very simple process put in place to the affect that once it is established that the alien respondent is an illegal alien that he or she is quickly deported.

Doesn´t this qualify as a foreign invasion? It certainly does to me. Just who invited these people to come to this country? The only one that did is Obozo. As such, he has to be held as responsible for any and all of their actions and diseases they spread around and anything else they do. And there is no way that under current law that they can become citizens or be eligible to vote for anyone. To allow any of that to happen has to be a violation of current law. Why can´t the lo-fo´s and the rest of the country see that? We here at LCom do.

Harsh critics of Perry must understand that in this particular situation nobody, not Perry, nobody, can effectively jump right in and do something heroic right now, this minute about what´s happening at the border in his state and in border states governed by others.

What he has to do is inform and educate the country, as he did in his remarks today, about the fact that Obama could do something practical but won´t. Yes, WE knew that beyond a shadow of a doubt--but not everybody in the country did.

Now Perry can take some action and will be roundly criticized by the opposition. So? So he will now have the ability to say, "Look, I tried to convince Obama that we are in dire straits here in Texas and across the country but all he says is ´gimme the money I want or I´ll just turn my back and ignore you.´ " And right there he will have the grounds to do something himself.

You all know that those involved in law enforcement in Texas will send one or two or six or more officers to control the border. Other border states should follow suit. If they don´t, let THEM provide the $3.7 billion that the rest of us who help support this country paid into the treasury--the majority of whom have numerous generations of antecedents who also paid their way with money and lives.

Who else is out there, face to face with Obama, trying to solve or at least ameliorate the problem? Perry and Texas need support, not criticism.

If there’s anything to the chatter (and sometimes there is), we may soon be treated to what happens when Barack Obama employs his famous tactic of “leading from behind.” We have to call it a tactic and not a strategy, since the president says he doesn’t have a strategy.

The elusive ´It factor´

Like it or not, this truism is very true: Being president in the modern era requires a certain "It Factor." You don´t need star power to make it to the U.S. Senate, or to rise in its leadership. (Looking at you, Senators Reid and McConnell.) You don´t need an almost celebrity-like sexiness to succeed in the House. (Who among us would describe Steny Hoyer or Steve Scalise in such terms?) But when we´re talking about the presidency, it´s not enough these days to be a highly intelligent lawmaker with a history of policy expertise and success. You´ve got to have charisma.

Washington - President Barack Obama formally notified the U.S. Congress on Monday that he had authorized air strikes and humanitarian airdrops over the weekend in the Iraqi Shi’ite town of Amerli where Islamic State militants had trapped the civilian population. Iraqi security forces backed by Shi´ite militias on Sunday broke the two-month siege of Amerli and entered the northern town after the U.S. military carried out air strikes on militant positions and delivered emergency supplies to residents there. Obama said in a letter to congressional leaders he was notifying Congress of his decision under the long-standing War Powers Resolution,

Legally, it doesn’t matter that both Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin were “unarmed” when shot to death. One of the most common laments to come out of Ferguson these last days has been that surely it was outrageous for Office Darren Wilson to use his service pistol to shoot an “unarmed” Mike Brown. (Earlier iterations of this narrative went further in their misinformation, describing the 18-year-old 6’4" 292 pound Brown as a “kid” or “child,” as well as falsely claiming that Wilson shot Brown in the back, but such misinformation falls outside the scope of this post.)

Some time ago I contrasted the reaction a conservative would get if he were in the same room with the two most consequential politicians of the 1990s, Bill Clinton and Rudy Giuliani. If you were in a room with Bill Clinton, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you agreed; he would probe you with questions, comments, suggestions; and he would tell you that you enabled him to understand it far better than he ever had before. If you were in a room with Rudy Giuliani, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you

My wife is a little under the weather, so we had an early night last night and consequently I had an early morning this morning. I used my man-time — before she wakes up and the television is taken over by Raising Asia — to watch Errol Morris’s documentary on Donald Rumsfeld. The documentary is fascinating, and I recommend it to anyone interested in the Rumsfeld years. Of course, the 21st century being what it is, after finishing the documentary I proceeded to study Mr. Rumsfeld’s Wikipedia page, wherein I discovered — at least according to whoever wrote this part of

Raising the spectre of nuclear war over Ukraine, Russia’s Vladimir Putin is playing a new, and dangerous, game. On Friday, as Russian Federation tanks and troops poured across the border into eastern Ukraine, Vladimir Putin talked about his country’s most destructive weaponry. “I want to remind you that Russia is one of the most powerful nuclear nations,” he said. “This is a reality, not just words.” Russia, he told listeners, is “strengthening our nuclear deterrence forces.” That same day, Putin used a term for eastern Ukraine meaning “New Russia.” So when he refers to repelling “any aggression against Russia” and

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out. There’s just no way to explain the president’s decision to

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding. The study, which

I guess he really was multitasking out on the golf course. The President’s team has been hard at work behind the scenes, coming up with a strategy … well, maybe we should say plan, to address the nation’s many challenges. Spurred by President Obama’s climate action plan, the Department of Energy is pumping out new standards for refrigerators, dishwashers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, furnaces, boilers, water heaters, lamps and many more appliances. The administration says the standards will not only help the planet but also stimulate the economy by saving consumers money on their energy bills that they can spend elsewhere. After what

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak. An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan. More than 100 A-list celebrities are alleged to have been targeted, including reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, models Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne and Kelly Brook, and

Monday at the Laborfest event in Milwaukee, President Barack Obama gave a passionate speech in his plea for fair wages for workers. At a raised pitch, he said, "I´m not asking for the moon. I just want a good deal for the workers." The president also discussed his "vision for an economy," where workers have a fair chance, retirement benefits, family leave and pay equality for woman.

Though the first chapter of Michael Sam´s NFL story lasted just a summer, ending Saturday when he failed to make the St. Louis Rams´ 53-man roster at the end of training camp, his very arrival as the league´s first openly gay player made an impact. Wade Davis, a former NFL player who came out after his playing career ended, told USA TODAY Sports Saturday night that the he´s seen significant changes in how gay players are viewed in the past few months, a credit to both Sam and the Rams.

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

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended
