Gutierrez Slams ´Shameful´ GOP
For Creating Fear Of Children

Breitbart TV, by Pam Key

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/13/2014 7:18:00 AM

Friday on "Democracy Now," Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) attacked his "shameful" Republican colleagues for wanting to change the 2008 child trafficking law so that the children from from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador current streaming across the border in hopes of evading deportation will be treated the same as those from Mexico before approving the $3.7 billion in emergency funding the president has requested. The Illinois Democrat said, "I think it is shameful that in the Congress of the U.S. we see members of Congress engendering and creating fear of children. We should be protecting children, not creating fear of them." Yesterday,

Frankly, the most shameful thing is Gutiérrez´s apparent willingness to use children as political pawns. You rarely see it done so openly outside tinpot dictatorships.

Another Demonrat spreading lies. The illegal aliens are not "children". 80% are males and 80% are above the age of 18.

Children do not, by virtue of being children, have immunity to criticism. If they are carrying diseases, they should be quarantined and treated. If they are miscreants, they should be separated from other good kids and punished. If they are "bad seeds", they should be jailed.

The Children do not have some magical quality that frees them of accountability, nor should they get a free pass.

Damn right I´m afraid of children who are little Typhoid Marys.

The narrative for democrats on immigration starts with stock cliches such as "a nation of immigrants and give us your tired your poor . . ." If conservatives deflect those talking points, democrats make ad hominem and racist attacks. It is a winning strategy because the public is stupid. democrats control the emotional high ground on every issue.

I´ve seen two of these horribly tattooed "children" promenading their much maligned skin in Walmart with their current female companions. (They promenade in outdoor plazas back home.) You think they look menacing on the photos? Wait till you see them in real life. Any more of this and Walmart will be off my itinerary.

Aside from the fact that some are carrying tuberculosis, that some are gang members and that some will be used as sex slaves - the mere fact that they are children doesn´t give them a pass.

If I had dozens of children streaming into my neighborhood expecting to be taken care of, I would be afraid as well. What gives them the right to demand services from complete strangers?

Yes, and it was the GOP who extorted money from their poor parents to make the trip, put them in the hands of human traffickers, put them in harm´s way for sexual abuse, disease, and who knows what else, and then gave them the Obama sneakers to wear across the border. Yup, I get it, it´s all the GOP´s fault.

Gutierrez, hmmmmm. Has he been to the boarder and seen these so called "children"?
I bet he hasn´t been there. Otherwise he would know that half of these so called kids are 12-18+ year old. Besides, how does he know? If he hasn´t been to the boarder and no pictures are allowed, and I am sure he doesn´t believe the reports from the boarder agents, who are there processing these people, that they are all children.

His sympathy for the children is a Democrat ploy they always use. Never mind that they are herded like animals, contained and removed from their families to afford Obama his good relationship with leaders south of our boarder. You see this case shows how greedy people wanting more power will use anyone and anything to further their agenda.

How many demonrat voters will experience their children coming home from school with TB, swine flu, scabies, lice, etc which will then spread to the whole family?

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

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. And back in the 19th century when the first great wave of immigration

"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

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

Henry admitted he was “stunned” that none of his colleagues in the briefing room followed up on that remark of the president’s, especially considering how quickly after the presser the White House jumped right into “damage control mode.” And whereas last night Henry blew Kelly’s mind by telling her Obama would be attending one fundraiser on Friday, he told her tonight that actually, it’s going to

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

At least four hostages held in Syria by the Islamic State, including an American journalist who was recently executed by the group, were waterboarded in the early part of their captivity, according to people familiar with the treatment of the kidnapped Westerners. James Foley was among the four who were waterboarded several times by Islamic State militants who appeared to model the technique on the CIA’s use of waterboarding to interrogate suspected terrorists after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The victims of waterboarding are often strapped down on gurneys or benches while cold water is poured over a cloth covering

It´s not Obama´s first dodgy outfit choice, nor the worst in the history of the White House.
