Flow of Central American immigrants
through Mexico shows no signs of slowing

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

Like I´ve said before, $3.7B now, $6B in 6 months; $14B next year; until it reaches $1T for each and every year.

WHAT Is Obama doing to stop this? Nothing, to the contrary, he is encouraging it. His plans for this country are the same plans as ISLAM has for this country.

His Democrat supporters see any criticism as racism, so THEY aren´t going to say anything. It´s all a game for them of political defeat for the Republican party economically crushing the enemy.

Even if the House gets a bill out to return them and the Senate passes it and obmam signs it doesn´t mean any thing. The Democrats will do what it takes to get rid of the story and the msm will help with those optics. But we all know laws mean nothing to obama and the Democrats the return of the illegal aliens will be slow walked so as to be minuscule compared to flood coming in. They get rid of the story and get to keep a majority of the illegals. We are being invaded by illegal aliens and the Democrats are out saying the border is secure. Good grief this is worse than any Twilight Zone episode.

Except for doltish, clueless Harry Reid, the Democrats and the President are desperate to get this story out of the news. What Obama and his not-so-smart-after-all advisers expected from this border plan was not what they ended up with. None of them expected the thousands and thousands who have come and are still coming. Now, it´s up to the GOP in the House and the Senate to force Obama´s signature. He will harumph and complain, but he will sign a bill to put an end to this disaster.

#1 3.7b now or EVER is ludicrous in any measure. Sending the current influx might cost 1-2m and I´m being generous with air fair and the cost of delousing and sanitizing the aircraft. Getting the remaining millions who were here before this disaster still wouldn´t cost $1b. This administration has spent so wildly that the perception of the difference between million and billion has become warped.

Obama is forcing taxpayers to sign a blank check. The Federal Govt claims they don´t know how many illegals are here, or how many will be coming. Mind you, as I type this, illegals are being ´secretly´ distributed all around our country. You and I don´t have a right to know how many - or where. We are, however, required to foot the bill without receiving any factual answers to our questions, much less a truthful explanation.

Obama is forcing taxpayers to financially support each and every man, woman and child that has broken into our country, for this generation, and probably the next. The possibility exists that the family members of each illegal will want to come here, too, and those expenses will become your and my responsibility. How do we financially forecast?

Never mind that today, jobs are currently more rare than hen´s teeth. Nevermind that Obama is gutting our military, and that we have returning Veteran´s who should have first dibs on jobs upon their return. Nevermind that illegals receive the best of health care, but our Veteran´s die waiting to access theirs. The list goes on and on.

I don´t believe for a second this ´humanitarian crisis´ is coincidence. I believe it was carefully orchestrated.

If Rick Perry, in defiance of 0bama, would send the Texas National Guard to the border, fully armed, and use the Air National Guard fighter jets to make low flying runs just inside the border, he would be a shoe-in for president in 2016. If 0bama tried to stop him, Perry could call him out and force him to take ownership of the mess. It´s a win-win for Perry and the Republicans.

Jan Brewer could then do the same in Arizona and perhaps New Mexico and California would be forced by their citizens to join in.

If I can come up with this plan, why can´t Perry? Or any other Republican "leader" for that matter.

Just wait until little 11 year old Pablo or Juan or Maria makes it all the way to their aunt´s free apartment in the public housing project in L.A., NY, St. Louis, or where ever and then calls home to Mamachita on the free Obama-phone --- that´s when Mama gets on the bus north with her other 4 brats. Expect 1 million by year´s end.

And calling out the national Guard will do what? These people have been told to just lie down when confronted by any American in a uniform. The National Guard is going to shoot them? You think they believe that? Not happening. Better to grab a few thousand and send them back!

It will only stop when Pablo and his friends show up back where they came from with wild stories about the round trip.

The corrupt Mexican Government is engaged in an "act of war" against the national sovereignty of The United States by allowing these tens of thousands of illegal alien "invaders" "free passage" through their territory.

Maybe it´s time our Department of Defense thought seriously about reactivating and reconstituting Brigadier General John J. Pershing´s old 8th Brigade and the it´s supporting units of the punitive Mexican Expeditionary Force of 1916.

Do not allow Mexicans to come into the country to shop at Walmart until the Mexican government stops the illegals at their southern border.

We need to cut off diplomatic relations with Mexico, and the countries that are exporting their people. Then we need to stop any money transfers from the US t thee countries. If someone comes over from Mexico they are sent back with a bill for Mexico not performing their sovereign duties. No more aid to these countries, no nada.

Until secretive, not reported, Catholic Church of Rome policies are brought out to the public, in the billion dollar for billion dollar shocking open, this Catholic packed alien invader plague upon America will continue.

The Church openly, quietly, offers Sanctuary to all invaders. The Church lobbies the governments to pay for much of the Church Sanctuary. The government also directly invites millions to come to the land of open welfare to all illegals. Illegals have more access to our socialism, than even our own citizen expert welfare cheats.

Why wouldn´t ANY schemer not want to cross our borders into an unbelievable LAH LAH LAND of make believe?

Closing the border doors is just the beginning of stopping Herr Obama´s and the Popes´s planned chaos destruction of a wonderful country.

How is "lobbing" children, along with MS-13 members, drug traffickers, terrorists, and others into our country from Mexico that much different from lobbing rockets into Israel from the Gaza strip? The difference that I see is that traitors our government are facilitating it.

"through Mexico" is operative here. This invasion, the act of war and treason that it is, could not happen without the complicity of the governments of Mexico and other Central American nations. It is time to treat this assault on our borders accordingly.

It´s pretty clear that we can´t wait or depend on our government to do anything about this invasion. It´s going to take a coming together of True Americans to overcome what our own government in accord with the governments of South America are doing to US.

Illegals gather together in our city streets and DEMAND that OUR government meet their needs. They boycott services - refusing to support the very country that has given them refuge, housing, food, healthcare and more. They care not that the education of their children has come at the expense of the education of ours. They will burn OUR American Flag in our very streets while they shout obscenities at any American who disagrees with them. Their middle finger is their salute to us TRUE AMERICANS.

It is time that WE gather in our city streets and demand that OUR government meet OUR demands - TO SEAL OUR SOUTHERN BORDER AND SEND THOSE WHO HAVE VIOLATED OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS BACK WHERE THEY CAME FROM. Then we need to boycott everything from Mexico, including travel. It might take a while, but we are a powerful force. We just need to start.

Americans now need to get organized to protect our country; from the invaders coming in from the southern border and from the government that isn´t doing its job. I´m ready as I know millions of Americans are.

The House of Representatives should not give Obama any money, as he will just use it to hire a bunch of leftist lawyers, most coming out of the very liberal ethnic and immigrant advocacy groups allied to the liberal Democrats as new immigration court judges, along with immigration lawyers to represent illegal aliens.Those judges and lawyers are about the last people who are going to facilitate the US Government removing illegal aliens from the USA.

The tens of millions of illegal aliens along with the new illegal aliens coming into the USA are forming huge communities inside the big liberal Democrat run cities that serve as cover for the international drug cartels and other foreign criminals to operate in the USA. The people who bring the cartel´s illicit drugs into the USA and who transport those drugs all over the USA are almost all either deportable permanent resident aliens (green card holders) or illegal aliens.

Big time liberal Democrats have continuously disparaged and undermined the immigration laws and are now announcing to the world that the borders are open and illegal aliens are welcome in the USA. Things are going to get a lot worse before they get better. This is all political to generate a huge number of new foreign born voters for the liberal Democrats in the years ahead. The November election is going to be very important to the future of the country.

Clinton Earns $12 Million

Bloomberg News, by Lisa Lerer & Lauren Streib    Original Article

Hillary Clinton has earned at least $12 million in 16 months since leaving the State Department, a windfall at odds with her party’s call to shrink the gap between the rich and the poor. Clinton’s income since her resignation as secretary of state in February 2013 is derived mostly from her latest memoir, speeches and paid appearances at corporate retreats, according to an analysis of data compiled by Bloomberg. At least 12 organizations that previously booked President Bill Clinton -- who has been paid almost $106 million in speaking fees alone since he left the White House -- also hired his wife.

SAN ANTONIO — Gov. Rick Perry is expected to announce Monday that he will activate up to 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the Rio Grande Valley, state Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, D-McAllen, confirmed Sunday night. Perry wants these troops to bolster the work already being done with a surge of Texas Department of Public Safety troopers, said Hinojosa´s spokeswoman, Jennifer Saenz, who added that the governor gave the Valley legislative delegation notice before the planned 2 p.m. announcement on border security. “The senator understands that Perry wants this troop buildup, but is not sure what kind of federal approval he needs

Long gone, evidently, are the days when the late, great Sonny Bono, asked for his position on illegal immigration, answered: “My position? What do you mean, my position? It’s illegal!” Still, I have never understood the claim that open borders is a winning political issue for the Democrats. That is borne out in the most recent Rasmussen Reports survey: Most voters don’t want any of the young illegal immigrants who’ve recently arrived here housed in their state and say any legislation passed by Congress to deal with the problem should focus on sending them home as soon as possible.

Just 14 percent described her time at State — she served four years ending in February 2013 — as “excellent,” while 28 percent defined it as “good.” Twenty-one percent called it “fair,” and 32 percent rated her performance “poor.” Six percent weren’t sure or declined to answer.

Perry will announce his plans Monday to mobilize some 1,000 guardsmen to the Rio Grande Valley to increase security at the border, according to the Monitor, a south Texas newspaper.

THE PEW Research Center last week released a new survey of American attitudes in the Middle East. The results weren’t surprising. In the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, 51 percent of Americans say they sympathize more with Israel. Only 14 percent feel greater affinity for the Palestinians. Pew’s findings demonstrate the strength of pro-Israel feeling in the United States. The poll was conducted amid the current fighting with Hamas, but the bottom line hardly changed from Pew’s last survey in April, when it reported that in the 36 years it has been sampling public opinion, “sympathy toward Israel has never

Most of the news coverage of the shooting down of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 has been ridiculous if not positively annoying. For days, we’ve been bored by breathless reports of “black boxes” gone missing, the accident scene “contaminated,” moved bodies, and calls for independent international investigations. Now that BFFs John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov have agreed that there needs to be — according to a Russian Foreign Ministry announcement — “an absolutely unbiased, independent and open international investigation” into the “crash” of the Malaysian airliner, we are apparently being told to relax because the “crash” is in safe

Something important is missing from the New York Times´s coverage of the war in Gaza: photographs of terrorist attacks on Israel, and pictures of Hamas fighters, tunnels, weaponry, and use of human shields. It appears the Times is silently but happily complying with a Hamas demand that the only pictures from Gaza are of civilians and never of fighters. The most influential news organization in the world is thus manufacturing an utterly false portrait of the battle—precisely the portrait that Hamas finds most helpful: embattled, victimized Gaza civilians under attack by a cruel Israeli military.

At around noon on March 20 last year, Air Force One landed at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport for Barack Obama’s first presidential visit to Israel. The three-day trip had been billed as an Israeli reset—the newly reelected president’s bid for a clean slate with the Jewish state after four years of icy relations. Obama would lay a wreath at the tomb of Theodor Herzl, the father of Zionism. He would visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum. He would address an auditorium packed with Israeli students. And, of course, he would meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Before heading

(snip) It is as though the more dangerous the world becomes the more Obama hides in a fantasy world of avoiding the responsibilities of the presidency. He uses the office to surround himself with court jesters who distract him in an enlightened and noble way from the growing failures of his policies and the rapidly expanding threats to the civilized world.

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks. He apparently made the announcement without first consulting either of the parties. The diplomats are convinced that their own

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death.

As a TV and movie star for nearly six decades, the Oklahoma kid made the hard art of acting seem like a game — as deft and persuasive as a gambler´s con He was a man’s man who relied on his wits instead of his fists; a ladies’ man who wouldn’t steal a fella’s girl. Famous for his Maverick Western series in the 1950s and The Rockford Files in the ’70s, and in movies like The Great Escape and Grand Prix in between, James Garner played amiable, independent characters for more than a half-century, and never lost his comforting, enduring appeal.

Miami - A jury in northwest Florida awarded a staggering $23 billion judgment late Friday against the country’s second-largest tobacco company for causing the death of a chain smoker who died of lung cancer at the age of 36. Michael Johnson Sr. died in 1996 after smoking for more than 20 years. In 2006, his widow, Cynthia Robinson, of Pensacola, sued the R. J. Reynolds Company, the maker of the Kool brand cigarettes her husband had smoked, arguing that the company had deliberately concealed the health hazards its product caused. The four-week trial ended Wednesday. The jury deliberated for 18 hours over two days,

Denver - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin urged the grassroots Saturday to support her call for the impeachment of President Obama, imploring conservatives to push the idea with Congress. “There’s only one remedy for a president who commits high crimes and misdemeanors, and it’s impeachment,” said Ms. Palin. “It’s the I word.

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

A female general who has never piloted a military aircraft has been nominated by US President Barack Obama to head the Air Force in the Pacific. Air Force Lt. Gen. Lori J. Robinson was nominated by the president for a fourth star and to be commanding general of the military branch’s Pacific operations. If confirmed, she will be the first four-star female commander of combat forces, the Pentagon announced. But many wonder if her lack of experience in the air puts US forces on a highway to the danger zone. ‘You make operational decisions that require the understanding of what you
