At Last -- Someone Did Something
American Spectator, by William Murchison

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/22/2014 4:40:27 AM

So, then, what are we supposed to think when the governor of Texas dispatches National Guardsmen to the state border with Mexico in order to deflect the onrush of illegal border-crossers? What are we supposed to do? Do? A strange concept these days. Do something about the Russians and their depraved allies for shooting down a passenger plane? Do something about the depraved crowd of terrorists who provoked Israel into assaulting the tunnels in which they skulk? Do something about those equally depraved Iraqi terrorists now rounding up and expelling Christians from their midst? Do something about the kidnappers of schoolchildren

Well, well, we have a Governor who is more presidential than the faux president we´re stuck with.

Who knew the National Guard could guard our National border? This befuddles liberals and the elite.

Bravo, Gov. Perry. Do what you believe is best for your state and its people. You gain nothing by standing around and twiddling your thumbs. It is time that the states pushed back against the would be dictator in the White House. Be prepared for the fallout from making the boy king look incompetent because you will be attacked by the left and the media. However, most of America support your efforts. Thanks for doing the right thing. It is a step in the right direction. We need more action like this. Obama needs to be put on notice. He and his big government have gone too far.

It´s going to be interesting to see what kind of craziness comes from the Messiah and his gang of communists over this. Will he sue Texas? Order the military there to run the NG off? Order his lapdog media to viciously attack the Governor 24/7?

personally, if my fellow Ldotters care to remember,I recommended that Perry do this sometime ago--just saying. However, I also, at the time,wrote that he should first succeed from the union.

I am proud of Gov.Perry but it is like taking a cup of water out of a near full bathtub, with the water still running but it is a step in the right direction. New Mexico and Arazona I hope will follow his lead...no way that California will...they are too far under water.

Since Obe has all the Federal Judges lined up to hand out amnesty rulings...things could get a bit dicey if NM and Arz do follow Tx´s example. It is a even bet that our leader will call in the Marines to arrest the National Guard. He is actually that goofy. Forty % of Americans would support him along with the vast majority of the illegals.

Would like to read the article, but the Am Spectator site for mobile devices has problems with its design.

At least the NG will be at the border and not 40 miles north. Obama and Jeh Johnson let them all the way in so that they can make their false claims and then get the feds to take over the coyote´s duties.

Texas is a big state and may be able to fund the cost. But Obama is at war with the State of Texas, seeking to punish its citizens with higher taxes. So we have to decide if it is cheaper to pay the Guard or to pay the cost of educating the coming baby boom.

#6, I´ve been saying it here too and pointing out that it would make him a shoe-in for the presidency in 2016. Now talk radio hosts are saying the same thing. Maybe Gov. Perry lurks here.

The next step is for Jan Brewer to follow suit. I doubt that there´s any hope that the moonbat governors of CA and NM have any intention of joining in, so let their states be overrun and bankrupted. Then they can face the wrath of their citizens.

I hope that zippy´s head has already exploded.

I had forgotten what leadership looked like. Thanks, Governor Perry, for not vacationing in pricey locations, going to fundraisers, bobnobbing with Hollywood, or being satisfied with talking the issue to death. Texans will swallow hard and pay the price, but thanks for your leadership.

Perry understands what is expected and required of the state´s chief executive unlike our pathetic president. This is why former governors typically make the best presidents rather than the leader of the choom gang from the faculty lounge of a quasi communist institution.

Yes we used to take in the tired and the poor huddled masses but we said you can´t come if you are sick. That and there isn´t any welfare so you have to have the promise of a job or have some means of support. Now members of the huddled masses making maybe $2k in a good year can come and get welfare that can pay up to the equivalent of $50k a year with free education for the young and healthcare for everyone . . . essentially for just getting here alive. It´s the proverbial gravy train. They do have to do one thing, vote for the politicians who will keep the money flowing but that´s not too tough. Do they want to become a citizen of the United States? Why would they? They´d have to study, pass a test, pay taxes and lose a lot of their welfare. Besides they live in a little replica of the country from which they came so it´s just like home except with great benefits.

Rick Perry is the first politician to show a sincere desire to stop this. That´s pretty good evidence that if we make him president he will stop it.

Will the NG be there to babysit, or stop the illegals.
We had a Civil War here in the States, to protect STATES RIGHTS..as a result slavery was stopped, but the rights of each state was preserved. Each state has the right and duty to protect its citizens and its borders. All the governors should be doing this. Bringing illegals into the states is NOT protecting the citizens of the state.
I applaud Gov.Perry, but what took so long.
where are the gov. of New Mexico, Ariz. Calif.

I hate to tell you this but Jan Brewer won´t do a thing. She did send out a tweet two weeks ago blasting Obama for the border situation. That´s all you´ll get from her. She´s not the conservative governor some think she is. Fortunately for us she´s out in January.

I applaud Perry for acting. I don´t think it will have much affect, but at least he´s trying.

Oops. 1,000 guardsmen are not near enough to seal a border as long as that of Texas but, at least it is something and a start. How about all the other red state governors order their guards to Texas to help? Can they do that?

Perry’s move is against the drug smugglers. So many of our border agents have been caring for the kids that we don’t have the manpower to fight the drug war, and drugs have been pouring into Texas. If the National Guardsmen can just take care of the kids, the Border Agents can go back to stopping the inflow of drugs.

#21 I had the same thought about 1,000 NG troops not being enough for such a long border. As far as the National Guards from other states helping out in Texas, I doubt that they could be ordered there except by the President. Obama would probably only laugh at the idea, but I applaud your thinking "outside the box".

Hopefully, lots of Texan young men and women can be recruited to join the Texas National Guard immediately and they can be sworn in quickly in order to add to the 1,000.

I liked Rick Perry in 2012 and was hoping he would be the GOP nominee, but he got stung in the debates. Maybe it was a good thing. Now more Americans really do want a change and are able to see that an experienced Governor from a very large successful state is just what we need in the WH.

"Not even the Romans pulled off the trick."

Interesting choice of words, the writer obviously forgetting that the Romans were the bad guys in their day, just like the U.S. Imperial Government is today.

Obama is just stupid enough to try to pit the U.S. Army against their own National Guard, not being American enough to realize that the two sides would then take sides against HIM. This could get real interesting.

If Gov. Perry hadn´t been derailed by democrat slander and the MSM in 2012, we would be in much better condition today. How did we end up with a gay idiot for POTUS at a time when we need a real patriot with courage? The only possible answer is massive voter fraud and people voting strictly on the basis of racial guilt. If we haven´t learned after two huge mistakes like 2008 and 2012, we might as well call in the Fat Lady because it´s over.

What are the rules of engagement? Will they have loaded weapons? After watching the video posted in the other "must read" about the border crisis it seems the Border Patrol has been essentially disarmed. If even 1% of that video is true we´re in real trouble. One thousand unarmed soldiers isn´t going to help.

Beats the heck out of bringing soccer balls and teddy bears (and PR cameras) to the "kiddies."

Remember when Gov. Perry shot a coyote that was harassing his dog? Too bad he can´t have his NG shoot a few more "coyotes" (ko-yo-tays).

#22: Are you serious? "If the National Guardsmen can just take care of the kids, the Border Agents can go back to stopping the inflow of drugs." Guardsmen changing diapers while Border Agents continue to play their roles in the farce entitled, "Drug Wars"?

Perry seems to be the only adult in the room lately.

The exodus of — it must be by now 60,000 uninvited Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Salvadorans into the United States...

No. They were not "uninvited". Our government, on one of its websites, a year ago began soliciting drivers to take "unaccompanied" illegals across our borders and into our country. They were sure as hell invited, by guess who?

Who is it who needs a fresh influx of Democrat voters who know that their very sustenance depends on Democrat programs -- free stuff for doing nothing but breathing. Who needs a permanent and reliable class of dependents? Democrats do.

Republicans want contributors, citizens, patriots, people who will work for their checks, people who will pay taxes, people who WANT to advance their lives. They don´t want people who are stuck on the plantation or on the mesa, with no hope of getting out their whole lives.

Who is the more compassionate?

I join with others in applauding Gov. Perry´s action. Question however: what are the guardsmen supposed to do to halt the illegal entry into the USA? They´re not going to shoot at the groups of illegals crossing the border. The best they can do is round them up and hold them for deportation. Isn´t that what the holding facilities are already doing, and Obie wants $3 billion to increase capacity?

A good smart move by Perry. It was the right thing to do, and he now has Zero in a bind. Either he ignores this action or federalizes the National Guard and withdraws them.

I just dashed off an e-mail to the Dallas Morning News. They chose to do a long front page story criticizing Perry for this move and explaining how it wouldn´t work and was strictly for political gain.

Why a paper in a conservative state chooses to take a liberal slant on everything I can´t figure out. No mention of the seriousness of the border situation; no mention of Obama´s failure to do anything whatsoever.

This is all "boob bait." The NG is not sealing the border or stopping drug smugglers, they´re helping BP find and taxi incoming "Invasive Americans" to processing points. Perry is acting the part, but is doing nothing more than hand wringing and posturing to get $$$ from the Feds. I bet the deal is the "invasives" are quickly out of TX in exchange. Also explains Brewer´s and Martinez´s passivity.

I applaud Gov. Perry´s action but one question remains. Just what are the NG supposed to do? Are they going to round up the illegals and put them in a holding area? Are they just going to turn them around and order them out of the country? I am just questioning what action they will take. And as pointed out, 1000 NG soldiers is just a drop in the bucket needed to completely secure the Texas border. But, the bottom line is that Perry is doing something while Obozo just thinks about what to do.

Satellite photos show how the depredations of dictators have turned the world’s fourth largest inland sea into a poisonous desert. MOSCOW, Russia — Photographs that NASA released this week show the graphic chronicle of a natural disaster in Central Asia’s Kyzylkum Desert. The images from the Terra satellite feature the patches of water remaining in the disappearing Aral Sea, which was once the fourth largest inland sea in the world. They look dark green in 2001, light green in 2005, as the sea grew shallower, and this year they are all but gone. The seawater once covering 26,000 square miles vanishes

If you want to know why the American public has such a dim view of lawyers, you should read an opinion issued last month by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Williams v. BASF. The opinion describes the allegations of a class of onetime asbestos plaintiffs who claim that a BASF predecessor and lawyers at Cahill Gordon & Reindel conspired to cheat them out of their rightful recovery in decades-old asbestos suits. According to the plaintiffs, who have depositions and document evidence to back their accusations, Cahill and its former client, a BASF predecessor, systematically hid and destroyed evidence

Obama Factor in 2014

PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters are more likely to view their choice of candidate in this year´s midterm elections as a message of opposition (32%) rather than support (20%) for President Barack Obama. That 12-percentage-point margin is similar to what Gallup measured for Obama in 2010 and George W. Bush in 2006, years in which their parties performed poorly in the midterm elections.(Snip for graph) Gallup first asked this question in 1998, the year Republicans were moving toward impeaching President Bill Clinton for lying about his affair with a White House intern. That year, when Clinton´s approval rating was 63%,

Most Texas abortion clinics shut down

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview.

And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

Another weird Obama pronunciation

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,
