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.

Headline should be:

the worst in some Americans.

There, fixed it.

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.

Using poor children to advance an agenda is the heartless behavior ´The Hawaiian´ is promoting here.

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
IDF Uniforms Attack Israelis
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

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.

President Obama said Monday that as a Washington, D.C., resident he supported statehood for the District of Columbia’s 650,000 inhabitants. "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

He insisted there should be an embargo on commercial dealings with Russian defence, banking, energy and aviation firms. Ahead of emergency talks in Brussels today, he insisted the EU should also freeze the assets of the Russian president’s allies, whom he referred to as cronies and oligarchs.

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

Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. James Sahady said the three men were reported missing on Saturday night after travelling into Hyannis that day. “They didn´t report back (to the base),” Sahady said. “There is no indication they pose a threat to the public.” Police and base officials are cooperating in the search for the three men, identified as Maj.

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´.

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.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

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.
