Immigrant children bringing out
the worst in some Americans

Fort Worth Star-Telegram, by Bob Ray Sanders

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/13/2014 6:35:35 AM

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their

Comments:
The True Ugly American is the author of the article and those of same mindset. They seek to destroy America as a arbiter of Individual Freedom, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness. I am saddened that more Americans are not madder.

Non-Texans should understand that Bob Ray Sanders has been our local saddleburr for many years. I give him just a bit of credit for remaining firm in his misguided convictions over a lot of years when there were few black liberal writers in north Texas. However, I can never read his opinion pieces without remembering his claim to be a conscientious objector during Vietnam. He got away with it.

Hey Mr.Sanders. How many of these illegals are pitching tents on your lawn? If Obama would Enforce the Immigration Laws we have on the books we wouldn´t have this problem. Just how much of America are you willing to destroy because of the Children?

It seems to be ok with him that these "children" are making US immigration policy rather than the people of the US.

Go ahead Bob, tell me again why we need them because they come from a failed culture, in a lousy wothless country.

Now Bob, tell me what country you´d like to go set up shop in?

Perhaps....but in this case obomba brought out the worst before any knew of the ´children´ marching up to declare war on us. This invasion was planned when the skinny dark ass was sworn into office the first time....in plans for his second term Many knew that once hunkered down in our OVAL OFFICE we would never ever get him and his brood out the door again. His entire family has brought out the worst. Many of us have lost friendships and family members only due to the fact both sides felt they were on point...not bullet target point, but ´feelings, ideas, and intention point. How many have just cut off any and all communications with those that don´t agree? Frankly, when invited for Christmas and Thanksgiving, can´t begin to stomach sitting at a table breaking bread with those that wish to destroy our America. Also surprised that they can still own the idea they carry in our most treasured memories giving the frame of mind in which they live.

Rat congrresscritter on the Judge´s show last night started on his talking points regarding children, citizenship, immigrants. The Judge cut him off at the knees and said "Sorry, we´ve run out time time and thank you". Like the Judge, we´ve run out of time with no thanks to you This will not end till rats no longer have any say in governing.

My Granfather and Grandmother with their infant taken on Ellis Island where they legally entered the USA. The infant is my father.
What´s coming across our southern border is NOT worthy of the name immigrant. Do you think we are fools?
THEY are illegal aliens. DO NOT insult the memory of my Grandparents and the millions of other immigrants who came to America..THEY are welcome here.

UAC´s are not "immigrant children." They are illegal aliens.


While Bob Ray Sanders expresses "sadness" at the sight of Bible thumping, flag waving, law abiding Americans, I am encouraged. It is so refreshing to see ordinary citizens push back against corrupt politicians and bureaucracies.


Surely this cannot be what the left had in mind when it first realized cartels were exploiting the law...and did nothing to stop it.

US acceptance of a flood of unaccompanied children has puzzled Americans who thought we had border laws.

It is slowly dawning on American taxpayers that instead of denying the children entry, our government has chosen the alternative multi-year process of sending some back. The government hope in the meantime is that they can be reunited with their parents who had previously been allowed in seeking work.

There, fixed the headline and the first sentence.

How about a compromise Mr Sanders? Comprehensive Amnesty for a change in welfare, ebt etc, to reflect that an individual or family can only be on government assistance for a total of 1 year in every 5 years.

That might be unpalatable for good intentioned democrats, but it will demonstrate republicans are willing to compromise.

Hamas Terrorists Wearing

Washington Free Beacon, by Abraham Rabinovich    Original Article

JERUSALEM—A Hamas force wearing Israeli army uniforms emerged from a tunnel inside Israel this morning and inflicted losses on Israeli troops before being wiped out. The Hamas squad numbered at least 10 fighters, Israeli sources said. Nine were killed but an Israeli officer said at least two may have escaped through the tunnel. In initial accounts, which gave conflicting narratives, the Hamas force was said to have emerged from a hidden tunnel on the Israeli side of the border only 200 yards from a kibbutz, and split into two groups. Israeli soldiers whom one group encountered shortly afterwards reportedly took them to

Diversity for Thee, but Not for Me
American Thinker, by Jim Yardley    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 7/22/2014 3:44:09 AM     Post Reply
The Progressive mantra of “diversity is our strength” is one of the most honored catchphrases of the left. Like all slogans, it is a test to see if common folk are “gun-toting, Bible-clinging” Neanderthals or are they part of the enlightened, educated elites to whom the rest of us must surrender our individual beliefs, opinions, and thoughts. But as with all that the Progressives say, the meaning of the words being used is warped and misrepresented. For example, think about what Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz is saying in the following: Diversity on the bench is critical. As practitioners, you need judges who ´get it!´

Want to get a new angle on Obama´s Hope and Change mantra? Longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer wrote the book about it before Obama was even born: The Ordeal of Change. [E]very radical adjustment is a crisis in self-esteem... It needs inordinate self-confidence to face drastic change without inner trembling. “Action,” wrote Hoffer, “is the most obvious way by which to gain confidence and prove our worth... [but] there must be an abundance of opportunities, and there must be a tradition of self-reliance” for a program of action to work.

"I´m in D.C., so I´m for it," Obama said Monday at a town-hall event to promote his "My Brother´s Keeper" program. "I´ve long believed that folks in D.C. pay taxes like everybody else. They contribute to the overall well-being of the country like everybody else. They should be represented like everybody else," Obama added. The president said there was no reason based on population size to deny the district´s residents statehood. But he acknowledged that the politics in Congress on D.C. statehood would

In response to the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling, atheists are sitting around knitting. And in this time of national crisis, they are knitting bricks. Worried about the supposedly crumbling wall of separation between church and state, the Secular Coalition for America (SCA) launched a “Knit a Brick” campaign to “harness outrage” at the ruling. The group will send yarn bricks to the Supreme Court, Congress, or White House staffers. Targets will be selected based on the number of bricks the Coalition’s high command receives by August 5, according to Religionnews.com. If organizers collect 400 bricks, they will send them to

An autopsy conducted on Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old fatally shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson last Saturday, shows that Brown was shot at least six times, twice in the head and all in the front of the body. The New York Times reported the results of a private autopsy conducted by Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by the Brown family. Baden conducted the autopsy on Sunday, according to the Times. One bullet entered the top of Brown’s skull. Four struck him in the right arm. All bullets hit Brown in the front of the body, according to

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease. [Snip] Observers might ask, “How can this be happening in an America that has elected a black president?” How can black kids still get killed by white cops and how

The party left me.” Without doubt, the party under Barack Obama has left those Jews who view Israel’s security as threatened. Obama recently told a New York Times interviewer, “Because Israel is so capable militarily, I don’t worry about Israel’s survival.” That’s shocking, considering Iran’s threat to wipe Israel off the map once it gets nukes.

Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. Department of Justice spokesman Brian Fallon said it will be performed at the request of Brown´s family in addition to the one conducted by the state. Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder. Last week, Holder announced the federal probe following protests and outrage over the murder of the unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Since the murder, the town has erupted into multiple police clashes. Despite a

Historians will have the rest of the century to unravel the mess that is the Barack Obama presidency. While they can explore these years of foreign policy disaster and domestic malaise at leisure, the rest of us have 29 more months to see just how awful things can get before he slides off to a lucrative retirement. But those who want to start the post-mortem on this historic presidency would do well to read Jackson Diehl’s most recent Washington Post column in which he identifies Obama’s hubris as the key element in his undoing.

McDonald’s has a problem. For the first time in 10 years, the company generated less revenue in a month than it did a year before, and it’s not a blip. The world’s biggest burger chain has been posting lagging results for some time, particularly in the United States. Blake Casper says he has a very good idea why. “Companies like Chipotle are doing a great job talking to people about healthy food, and they’re changing the dynamic of how people eat,” said Casper, who owns Tampa Bay’s largest McDonald’s franchise group with his sister Allison Casper Adams. “We embrace that
