Gov. Rick Perry to mobilize Texas National
Guard troops to secure U.S.-Mexico border

Washington Post, by Lindsey Bever

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/21/2014 4:47:26 AM

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) reportedly plans to dispatch the Texas National Guard to the U.S. border with Mexico, according to news reports. 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 newspaper quoted a state senator and an internal memo it obtained from a state official’s office. Perry spokesman Felix Browne told The Washington Post he would neither confirm nor deny the report, but said all details will be given at a news conference at 2 p.m. Central time

How long before Obama and Holder invoke federal supremacy and tells the TNG to step aside?

You mean a politician is finally going to do something they should instead of just running their mouth about it.

I hate to say it, but this ma be largely symbolic. Of those thousand troops, most will be support troops. There will be medics, mechanics, cooks, admin, supply, engineers, chaplains, comm guys, etc. Of the direct combat troops, some will be officers and senior enlisted who generally dont get involved with the dirty stuff. Figure the remaining personnel will be divided into 2-3 shifts with occasional days off and it doesn´t leave many people on a very long border.

Years in the making, and years too late. Will they have ammunition in their guns? Will they be allowed to shoot back? Will they be allowed within sight of the border or at some checkpoint 35 miles away? Once they catch illegals, will they send them right back or off to some holder hotel in Taxachusetts?

Exactly, #8; what is the ROE for the Guardsmen/women? When can they engage?

Watch for Nobama/Holder to invoke some sort of jury-rigged injunction against National Guard mobilization. Disgusting.

If the Feds, that is to say Obama/Holder, raise an injunction against protecting the Texas border and, frankly, the citizens of the state then Governor Perry has to have the cajones to ignore their ruling. There needs to be an immediate and massive push back against this invasion by Texas if not all of the border states.

I would like to see fenced, guarded tent cities erected along the borders with very, very basic accommodations. Every morning the invaders are marched to the border in their pink underwear to spend an hour looking at Mexico and freedom. Then they are put to work with basic hand tools on WPA type projects. Dinner is rice, beans with a cold shower and simple cot. There is no electricity. Monotony is the order of the day regarding both your work and your food. If you are identified as an illegal anywhere in the state you are moved to one of these facilities and given the choice to return south anytime you please. Ignore the Feds and make the life of an illegal in the state of Texas a miserable existence.

In the real world, Perry hasn´t any apparent interest in passing a bill revoking the state license of businesses who repeatedly hire these illegals. They attend our public schools, drive without licenses or insurance and flout our laws without concern. And the state capital of Austin is a sanctuary city.

I love Rick Perry for trying, but in answere to a previous post. All Obama has to do is nationalize the Texas Guard, just like Eisenhower did when Orval Faubus, the Governor or Arkansas, mobilized them to prevent integration at public schools in 1960. Eisenhower issued the orders and the troops immediately became protectors of the children trying to integrate the school system. I´m not trying to compare what Perry is doing with what the reprehensible Faubus did, but you can see how easily the situation can be turned 180 degrees around by Emperor Zippy.

“If the federal government does not do its constitutional duty to secure the Southern border of the United States, the state of Texas will do it,” Perry said Sunday at a Republican barbecue in Iowa.

Don´t mess with Texas.

What he said the day he met with Obama, was IF the National Guard was mobilized it would free up the Border Patrol to do their job which is securing the border. He also said the Border Patrol should be moved TO the Border, not 45 miles away. If Obama refuses to do this, it will be a HUGE campaign Ad for the Republicans AND Perry himself. The Border patrol should have GUNS AND BULLETS to prove they mean business. Anyone crossing should be IMMEDIATELY turned around and sent back. They have NO RIGHTS to a hearing! Put them in a truck, drive them to Mexico and force them to cross that Border back to where they came from. If they came from south of Mexico, it´s their problem how they will get back home. Once the word gets out, the flood will subside!

Sorry for one more post, but #21 may not realize that the National Guard is not deployed instantly anywhere or under any circumstances. The National Guard is completely self-contained, traveling with everything the members will need. That´s not put together in just hours.

Thanks Gov Perry. Texas has complete constitutional authority to protect its sovereignty, over and above any federal law. The federals will do nothing, and if they even try, Texas will expel them from the state as well.

FOR THE sake of the cameras, President Obama assured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko at a White House meeting Thursday that “not only do we support Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence in words, but we’ve also been supporting it in deeds.” If only that were true. The reality is that the beleaguered Ukrainian leader left Washington backed by considerable rhetoric from the Obama administration but little with which he can turn back the continuing Russian aggression against his country. In an emotional address to Congress, Mr. Poro­shenko described Ukraine as fighting for Western democratic values as well as its own survival, and he

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail. “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C.

The seven-month scandal that is threatening Roger Goodell´s future as NFL commissioner began with an unexpected phone call in the early morning hours on a Saturday in February. Just hours after running back Ray Rice knocked out his then-fiancée with a left hook at the Revel Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the Baltimore Ravens´ director of security, Darren Sanders, reached an Atlantic City police officer by phone.

The family of Glen Doherty, the former Navy SEAL killed in the 2012 Benghazi terror attack, has filed a $2 million claim against the CIA and the State Department. Barbara Doherty, the CIA contractor and former SEAL’s mother, filed a claim last week with the two government agencies for $1 million each. The family does not believe there was adequate security at the U.S. diplomatic outpost and a CIA annex when they were attacked Sept. 11, 2012. Dean Boyd, a spokesman for the CIA, said the agency would have no comment on the potential litigation, the Associated Press reported Friday. The

The conventional wisdom concerning the comparative generalship of Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant was established almost immediately after the Civil War. Despite his role as, in the words of Frederick Douglass, “the rebel chieftain,” Lee has been portrayed as surpassing all others on both sides of the conflict not only in soldierly virtue but also in magnanimity and humanity. Indeed, for decades, no Civil War figure, not even Abraham Lincoln, has exceeded the reputation of Robert E. Lee. Lee has been described as the perfect soldier — a Christian and a gentleman as well as a peerless commander who

Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds.

With little fanfare, President Obama has enjoyed remarkable success in his project to remake the federal courts in his own ideological image. How much more he achieves during his final two years in office depends in large part on whether Republicans win control of the Senate this November. Obama’s success is most marked in the federal courts of appeals, the intermediate level of the national judicial hierarchy. When Obama took office, only 1 of the 13 appellate courts had a majority of Democratic appointees. Now 9 do. Obama’s number of confirmed appellate nominees—53—only slightly exceeds President George W. Bush’s six-year total

Why commissioner and not GOP nominee? The 2016 field is “insanely wide open,” after all, and she’s got plenty to commend her — sterling academic credentials, years of diplomatic experience at the highest level, popularity among both wings of the GOP, and a trailblazer narrative that can trump even Hillary’s. She’d be seen, rightly or wrongly, as the “adult” in a field of Republican neophytes, someone whose

But our ruling class, from President Obama on the Left to The Wall Street Journal on the Right, take the public’s pressure to do this as another occasion for further indulging their longtime preferences, prejudices, and proclivities for half-measures in foreign affairs—the very things that have invited people from all over the planet to join hunting season on Americans.

The unease over Clinton’s candidacy on the left continues to grow, and it is a phenomenon which has become inescapably obvious to those following the nascent presidential race.

Obama is trying to argue the group is the “true inheritor of bin Laden” in order to legally justify the war. Just don´t tell al Qaeda, which booted ISIS in February. The White House and senior members of the Obama administration have been trying to convince Congress all week that, legally speaking, there’s no difference between ISIS and al Qaeda. But at the same time—and, often, in the very same classified briefings—members of the U.S. intelligence community are telling lawmakers that the two Islamic radical groups aren’t in cahoots at all. In fact, they’re competitors for supremacy in the global jihadist

A new 30-second TV ad airing statewide marks a political escalation by the Abbott campaign, which has largely ignored Davis in its TV ad campaign and instead focused on the Republican attorney general’s platform and personal story. While Davis has targeted Abbott relentlessly on TV, Abbott’s ads until now have been an effective contrast, signaling to his Republican base that he’s in good shape.

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security
