Europe to America: Voters are a multitude of fools; You’re idiots!

BJ Downing

I recently got an email with the following so called “BEST QUOTE OF THE DECADE – from the CZECH REPUBLIC” bashing the American people over our current POTUS.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama Presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their President.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools who made him their President.”

Well, I cannot say that I disagree but it reminds me of the last ‘BEST QUOTE OF THE DECADE’ that one from the Brits. Remember this?

 Brits to America: You’re Idiots!
Well, 51 percent of you, anyway.
By June Thomas Posted Thursday, Nov. 4, 2004, at 8:07 PM ET

Americans who think post-election anti-red-state recrimination is a U.S.-only phenomenon should check out the cover of Thursday’s Daily Mirror: Over a picture of President George W. Bush, the paper asked, “How can 59,054,087 people be so DUMB?” Inside, the left-leaning British tabloid headlined its editorial, “WAR MORE YEARS.” In a clear demonstration of the trans-Atlantic culture gap, the paper’s description of the president’s beliefs—clearly intended to strike Mirror readers as a radical agenda—is simply an accurate, if crude, précis of his platform: “Mr Bush opposes abortion and gay marriage, doesn’t give a stuff about the environment, is against gun control and believes troops should stay in Iraq for as long as it takes.”

Great quotes both – but- as far as I am concerned the best quote was written by one of our own when we formed this country long before we the people lost our marbles and sold our souls to one party or the other over a few radical issues none of us has any damned business dictating to the other of us!

“I never submitted the whole system of my opinions to the creed of any party of men whatever, in religion, in philosophy, in politics, or in anything else, where I was capable of thinking for myself. Such an addiction is the last degradation of a free and moral agent. If I could not go to heaven but with a party, I would not go there at all.” ~~~ THOMAS JEFFERSON, letter to Francis Hopkinson, Mar. 13, 1789

Any given Election year a paltry few percent of fools ( last few elections were won by 51-53%) will vote for one side or another over some radical issue be it religious vs. Liberal  (abortion/gay rights) or Republican vs. Dem (Green vs. drill baby drill or gun control) issue. Issues which apparently are more important that the waste, fraud, and abuse going on under our very noses. They are draining us dry while they are getting rich and making their cronies rich.

Here is some interesting information: Our representatives are MILLIONAIRES

The current salary (2011) for rank-and-file members of the House and Senate is $174,000 per year.
Who are the wealthiest members of Congress? Here’s a look. Next
If you stayed up nights wondering whether members of Congress would be able to weather the Great Recession of the late 2000s, this bit of news should finally put your mind at ease.

Overall, members of Congress saw their personal wealth grow by more than 16 percent during the worst economic downturn in the United States since the Great Depression, according to financial disclosures submitted by lawmakers. See more: Even in Recession, Congress Pay Grew

The median personal wealth for members of Congress grew to $911,510 in 2009, up from $785,515 in 2008, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Nearly half of the members of Congress are millionaires.

We should be focusing on jobs, economy, energy independence, education, infrastructure, equal representation by women in our government, media bias, court reform, earmark reform, term limits, terrorism, immigration, voter fraud, caucus fraud, corruption and tax reform instead of the divisive issues.

While they keep us looking at those divisive issues that keep us at each other’s throats they are abrogating our very democracy and getting away with it. We are battling each other while they just spend our money to get elected and re-elected. They spend it to play golf and to fly around the world visiting dignitaries for a day then vacationing for the rest of the week with the family members they brought with them; they vacation and buy homes on tropical islands all on our dime. They exempt themselves from our laws and health care reforms. They give themselves raises while they ask the citizens to pay more in taxes, they preach tax reform but they intend (just like HC reform) to hold on to their own loopholes. They believe they are above the law and are blatant about it (Kerry and his R.I. Yacht scandal)

“The Boston Herald reported that the Massachusetts Democrat had berthed his yacht Isabel in Rhode Island and suggested he was seeking to avoid paying about $437,000 in sales tax and an annual excise tax of around $70,000 that would be levied if he berthed the vessel in Massachusetts. Rhode Island has no sales tax on yachts.”

The Republicans with their family values are repeatedly found short of family values too numerous to list here but we know what they are. Suffice it to say, both parties claim the other party does not suit our values and they are both right – NEITHER does! Both are corrupt! Both are lying through their teeth.

Both QUOTES OF THE DECADE are true, the one about fools voting for Obama and dummies voting for Bush. We are a nation of sheeple who are getting dumber and dumber every day and paying the dishonor to do so. The once great and proud America will fall like every great empire and like the great republic of Rome if we do not wake up soon and stop voting for a few issues, which both parties offer like carrots on a stick but never really deliver anyway but rather keep alive as bait to keep us hooked to their party.

WAKE UP.

BTW- I have no idea who really wrote the quote attributed to the CZECH’s – it doesn’t really matter  does it? Read instead our founders and our Constitution.

Bloomberg: You ain’t got the cohonnas to do your job!

Another Rant By: BettyJean

We either stand up to those who are supposed to be representing our wishes or we cave in to being governed by those who don’t give a damned what we think. What’s more- if they allow our Constitution to be twisted and misinterpreted–  tell me what the hell is the use of having it? I say we scrap the whole damned government and start all over again.

Is this America or is this some Islamic country? All of a sudden it is fashionable for us to point fingers at Americans and police officers but not possible terrorists who fit the MO of those who have been threatening TO KILL us and DESRTROY OUR WAY OF LIFE !

We have been receiving threats since the early 90′s from Osama Bin Laden and others threatening us with destruction. Video tape after video tape – we are told our time is coming.

Americans are converting in order to commit Jihad on us and jihadist are becoming citizens in order to infiltrate and do harm. We are even offing 80,000.00 scholarships to educate these people  so they can later turn against us and plot to kill us while Americans are left uneducated. Suddenly we have Jihad Jane’s springing up in hajabs, and young men are  traveling to Pakistan to wage jihad cap what appears to be a record year for homegrown terror plots. In May, President Obama designated homegrown terrorism as one of the country’s top national security priorities.

WTF?

At first we were attacked overseas by a Suicide bomber who killed 241 American troops 25 years ago in barracks October 23, 2008. The USS Cole bombing was a suicide attack against the U.S. Navy destroyerUSS Cole (DDG 67) on October 12, 2000 while it was harbored and refueling in the Yemeni port of Aden. 17 American sailors were killed, and 39 were injured. This event was the deadliest attack against a U.S. Naval vessel since 1987.

There were others but  I want to concentrate on the idiots whose PC is making it easier for our enemies to attack us right here at home. We are not only turning a blind eye – we are actually aiding and abetting the enemy and accusing our own citizens of being Islamophobic instead of cautious. 

We are told not to jump to conclusions while time after time – we are right and – we are blamed eroneously. Please be rational here and explain with all the following proof I submit and tell me how WE are jumping to conclusions? These people have declared war on civilians and on our way of life. They want to impose Sharia Law and subvert our Constitution. We are not only in danger politically, we are in danger socially and the mosque must be stopped.

And I will tell you something else that must be stopped, the ridiculous pointing fingers AWAY from the terrorists and at our own innocent citizens who have enough common sense to know when to take a threat for exactly what it is – A threat!

If Bloomberg is afraid of Islam and what they might do to him if he resists – let him retire- and let’s get a mayor with the Cohonnas to do the job he was elected to do! It is time for us to stop complaining and start forcing these politicians to DO THEIR JOBS!

Ms Robinowitz says it better than I drop her a note and let her know!

By DOROTHY RABINOWITZ Americans may have lacked for much in the course of their history, but never instruction in social values. The question today is whether Americans of any
era have ever confronted the bombardment of hectoring and sermonizing now directed at those whose views are deemed insufficiently enlightened—an offense regularly followed by accusations that the offenders have violated the most sacred principles of our democracy.


Deputy Editorial Page Editor Bret Stephens and Editorial Board member Matthew Kaminski on the plan for a ‘Mosque at Ground Zero,’ and Senior Editorial Writer Joseph Rago reports on the Missouri results.

It doesn’t take a lot to become the target of such a charge. There is no mistaking the beliefs on display in these accusations, most recently in regard to the mosque about to be erected 600 feet from Ground Zero. Which is that without the civilizing dictates of their superiors in government, ordinary Americans are lost to reason and decency. They are the kind of people who—as a recent presidential candidate put it—cling to their guns and their religion.

There is no better exemplar of that faith than New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, though in this he is hardly alone. Compared with the Obama White House, Mr. Bloomberg is a piker in the preachments and zealotry department. Still, no voice brings home more unforgettably the attitudes that speak for today’s enlightened and progressive class.

Immediately after the suspect in the attempted car bombing near Times Square was revealed to be Faisal Shahzad, of Pakistani origin, Mayor Bloomberg addressed the public. In admonishing tones—a Bloomberg trademark invariably suggestive of a school principal who knows exactly what to expect of the incorrigibles it is his unhappy fate to oversee—the mayor delivered a warning. There would be no toleration of “any bias or backlash against Pakistani or Muslim New Yorkers.”

That there has been a conspicuous lack of any such behavior on the part of New Yorkers or Americans elsewhere from the 9/11 attacks to the present seems not to have impressed Mr. Bloomberg. Nor has it caused any moderation in the unvarying note of indignation the mayor brings to these warnings. It’s reasonable to raise a proper caution. It’s quite something else to do it as though addressing a suspect rabble.

It’s hard to know the sort of rabble the mayor had in mind when he told a television interviewer, prior to Shahzad’s identification, that it “could be anything,” someone mentally disturbed, or “somebody with a political agenda who doesn’t like the health-care bill.” Nowhere in the range of colorful possibilities the mayor raised was there any mention of the most likely explanation—another terrorist attempt by a soldier of radical Islam, the one that occurred to virtually every American who had heard the reports.

The citizens were, of course, right. Those leaders bent on dissuading them from their grasp of the probable cause of this near disaster were left with their red herrings hanging—but remembered. Mr. Bloomberg’s “someone who doesn’t like the health-care bill” would be inscribed in the golden book of howlers these events have yielded, along with Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano’s brisk assurance there was no evidence this was anything but “a one-off.”

When a car bomb was discovered in Times Square in May, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg suggested every possible motivation but the obvious and correct one: Islamist terror.

The notion that it is for the greater good that the people be led to suspect virtually any cause but the one they had the most reason to fear reflects a contempt for the citizenry that’s of longstanding, but never so blatant as today. It is in the interest of higher values, Americans understand—higher, that is, than theirs—that they are now expected to accept official efforts to becloud reality.

Such values were the rationale for the official will to ignore the highly suspicious behavior of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who went on to murder 13 Americans at Fort Hood. A silence maintained despite all his commanders and colleagues knew about his raging hostility to the U.S. military and his strident advocacy on behalf of political Islam.

Those who knew—and they were many—chose silence out of fear of seeming insensitive to a Muslim. As one who had said nothing in the interest of this higher good later explained, Maj. Hasan was, after all, one of the few top-ranking Muslim officers the army had.

In the plan for an Islamic center and mosque some 15 stories high to be built near Ground Zero, the full force of politically correct piety is on display along with the usual unyielding assault on all dissenters. The project has aroused intense opposition from New Yorkers and Americans across the country. It has also elicited remarkable streams of oratory from New York’s political leaders, including Attorney General Andrew Cuomo.

“What are we all about if not religious freedom?” a fiery Mr. Cuomo asked early in this drama. Mr. Cuomo, running for governor, has since had less to say.

The same cannot be said for Mr. Bloomberg, who has gone on to deliver regular meditations on the need to support the mosque, and on the iniquity of its opponents. In the course of a speech at Dartmouth on July 16 he raised the matter unasked, and held forth on his contempt for those who opposed the project and even wanted to investigate the funding: “I just think it’s the most outrageous thing anybody could suggest.” Ground Zero is a “very appropriate place” for a mosque, the mayor announced, because it “tells the world” that in America, we have freedom of religion for everybody.

Here was an idea we have been hearing more and more of lately—the need to show the world America’s devotion to democracy and justice, also cited by the administration as a reason to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in New York City. Who is it, we can only wonder, that requires these proofs? What occasions these regular brayings on the need to show the world the United States is a free nation?

It’s unlikely that the preachments now directed at opponents of the project by Mayor Bloomberg and others will persuade that opposition. Those fighting the building recognize full well the deliberate obtuseness of Mr. Bloomberg’s exhortations, and those of Mr. Cuomo and others: the resort to pious battle cries, the claim that antagonists of the plan stand against religious freedom. They note, especially, the refusal to confront the obvious question posed by this proposed center towering over the ruins of 9/11.

It is a question most ordinary Americans, as usual, have no trouble defining. Namely, how is it that the planners, who have presented this effort as a grand design for the advancement of healing and interfaith understanding, have refused all consideration of the impact such a center will have near Ground Zero? Why have they insisted, despite intense resistance, on making the center an assertive presence in this place of haunted memory? It is an insistence that calls to mind the Flying Imams, whose ostentatious prayers—apparently designed to call attention to themselves on a U.S. Airways flight to Phoenix in November 2006—ended in a lawsuit. The imams sued. The airlines paid.

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser—devout Muslim, physician, former U.S. Navy lieutenant commander and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy—says there is every reason to investigate the center’s funding under the circumstances. Of the mosque so near the site of the 9/11 attacks, he notes “It will certainly be seen as a victory for political Islam.”

The center may be built where planned. But it will not go easy or without consequence to the politicians intent on jamming the project down the public throat, in the name of principle. Liberal piety may have met its match in the raw memory of 9/11, and in citizens who have come to know pure demagoguery when they hear it. They have had, of late, plenty of practice.

A Woman’s Hunger Strike for rights draws scorn AGAIN

Barbara and BettyJean

A shout out to Gloria Allred for bringing attention to the ERA. Below is a press release from Gloria Allred:

 Attorney Gloria Allred Begins Hunger Strike (90 meal solid food fast)  In support of the Equal Rights Amendment In Advance of 90 Anniversary of Women’s winning the right to vote in the U.S. 

 Attorney Gloria Allred announced today she has began a 90 meal fast to draw attention to the need to pass the Equal Rights Amendment, a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution which would guarantee equal rights for women.

The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) was first proposed by Alice Paul in 1923. Although it was previously introduced into Congress and passed on to the U.S. Secretary and House of Representative and sent to the states in 1972 for ratification, a time limit was placed on the Amendment and ultimately it was not ratified by enough states before the time limit expired in 1979 or within the time extended by Congress to 1982. (35 states ratified and 3 more were needed.)

 The ERA has been since been reproduced with Congress (HJ.Res.61) but is still in the process of gathering co-sponsors.

Ms. Allred’s 90 meal hunger strike fast, in which she will give up solid food for 90 days, will end on August 26, 2010, Women’s Equal Rights Day. That day marks the 90th anniversary of women’s winning the right to vote in the U.S. by the addition of the 19th Amendment suffrage to the U.S. Constitution.

A big shout out to Greta for bringing attention to the ERA.
http://gretawire.blogs.foxnews.com/look-who-is-on-a-hunger-strike/

A big slap to the face of Greta bloggers who bring attention to the misogyny that is still thriving.

Selia
How absurd. I thought women had equal rights. Who knew. I guess Gloria. I’ve always thought hunger strikes were funny. So are protesters. All just looking for a few minutes on camera. If you really care about an issue, do something REAL about it.

Ron
Blimey ! And here I was hoping that she wanted to repeal perhaps the biggest mistake ever made in our country: Giving women the right to vote!

 free the media
with any luck at all, she’ll be so successful that she will disappear like the Wicked Witch of the West and we will no longer be subjected to this media whore

IMAGINE –this is what women are up against still today! What can be more prejudicial against human rights than the above statements, following on the heels of Hillary is a Bitch and Sarah is a Cunt ? These are not isolated statements – they are the norm. What’s worse, they are tolerated far and wide across our country and by our media and they must be stopped! Why are there no marches in the street  and more support for Ms. Alred?  RIDs should be supporting her for the sake of all women. Why do masses support false racism and why do masses support illegl immigration but not sexism? Why? I demand to know why we women are tolerating this?  Why?

I’ll tell you why- we have become soft and cowardly/. We are not our mothers and grandmothers daughters. – We haven’t got the cahoonas! I suggest you get up off your asses and start acting like the Women of the suffragist era and fast! You are acting instead like fools!

Meanwhile, people of color are screaming racism where none exists, even our own President has jumped to racist conclusions twice now and has had to apologize. Illegal immigrants are allowed to stream over our borders and lie, cheat and steal at will, and God forbid we disapprove- we are racists but stand up for a woman’s human rights and we join the cunt club.

Terrorists are allowed to build cells and take flying lessons so they can hijack planes and destroy over 3000 lives, terrorists have been given 80,000 dollar free tuition in our universities and now are plotting against us and training Islamic terrorists to come kill us and dare we question these things – we are Islamaphobes . But stand up for a Woman’s human Rights –and they will nail us to a wall as Bitches. You are getting the ass end of everything anyway – stand up and fight for love of Jane- Fight like a woman!

There are riots in the streets if one hair on the head of a black man is ruffled while committing a crime or a Hispanic is shot while crossing the Rio Grande by a white cop. He will be called into question because as our President says ‘there is a history of white prejudice where white cops act stupidly.’  It may be so however, what happened to innocent until proven guilty if white … or woman?

There are Mobs of people all over the country celebrating what is perceived to be a victory for illegal immigrants – there is something wrong with that picture! A POTUS fighting for the rights of illegal anything .…

It is just so damned different than when women were marching and fighting for their human rights. Let me remind you. Perhaps someone might remind the President what American women went through and are still going through and just how damned stupid he is. And perhaps he can tell his cronie jackass friends that the civil rights battle for the black women never got settled. And perhaps black and brown women will understand that they are still enslaved – and they don’t seem to mind being slaves just as long as they are not COLORED SLAVES! 

“And by the end of the night, they were barely alive. Forty prison guards wielding clubs and their warden’s blessing went on a rampage against the 33 women wrongly convicted of ‘obstructing sidewalk traffic’.http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/collections/suffrage/nwp/pr…

They beat Lucy Burns, chained her hands to the cell bars above her head and left her hanging for the night, bleeding and gasping for air.

They hurled Dora Lewis into a dark cell, smashed her head against an iron bed and knocked her out cold. Her cell mate, Alice Cosu, thought Lewis was dead and suffered a heart attack. Additional affidavits describe the guards grabbing, dragging, beating, choking, slamming, pinching, twisting and kicking the women.

Thus unfolded the ‘Night of Terror’ on Nov. 15, 1917, when the warden at the Occoquan Workhouse in Virginia ordered his guards to teach a lesson to the suffragists imprisoned there because they dared to picket Woodrow Wilson’s White House for the right to vote. For weeks, the women’s only water came from an open pail. Their food–all of it colorless slop–was infested with worms.

When one of the leaders, Alice Paul, embarked on a hunger strike, they tied her to a chair, forced a tube down her throat and poured liquid into her until she vomited. She was tortured like this for weeks until word was smuggled out to the press.

The Southern Border Could Get Much Worse

By Robert Eugene Simmons Jr. From American Thinker: http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/07/the_southern_border_could_get.html

The southern border of the USA is no longer something that we can ignore or use as a political tool. Successive presidents have failed to control this border for one reason or another, but the escalation of drug cartel violence on the southern side of the border is making the issue of illegal immigration almost an afterthought. It seems that if something doesn’t change, we could be looking at an all-out war with Mexican drug cartels.

 Police Chief Jeff Kirkham of the border town Nogales, Arizona, told Tucson Channel 9 (ABC) news that he has received threats that the Mexican drug cartels will start using snipers to target on- and off-duty police officers from across the border.

 Given the fact that Nogales sits right on the border with the town of Heroica Nogales on the other side, the threat is entirely credible and feasible. Heroica Nogales would provide ample places to hide within sniper range of many parts of Nogales. With an effective range of over one mile, modern rifles could easily target U.S. citizens and police in an eerie echo of the siege of Sarajevo in the Bosnian war.

 If snipers start setting up shop in Heroica Nogales, we certainly won’t be able to count on the Mexican military to take care of the problem. The cartels clearly don’t fear the Mexican military, given the enormous intimidation and bribery that they are able to bring to the table. Leaked stories of massive Mexican military corruption and intimidation are commonplace in the border regions.

 Given that the Mexican military would be of dubious worth, what options are left for the Obama administration to deal with the problem? Would Obama fire predator missiles into Mexico from drones to take out snipers, or would the risk of a real military conflict with the regular Mexican army and civilian casualties make that option out of the question? Would counter-snipers be employed to take out drug cartel snipers? Given Obama’s reluctance to deploy anything more than logistic personnel from the National Guard to the border, the answer is likely “no.” If Obama will not authorize return fire, what is the game plan for the police and civilians being shot at from across the border? If Obama did authorize return fire across the border, how would Mexico react to military snipers from our side shooting drug cartel snipers from theirs? Finally, what would the rules of engagement be? Would American military snipers be authorized to take out anyone deemed a threat, or would the life of a police officer or civilian have to be taken before they can fire back? Even the military will admit that counter-sniper operations are complex and fraught with risk.

However dismal the sniper scenario sounds, the problem doesn’t stop there. The Mexican drug cartels are exceptionally well-manned and armed with fully automatic AK-47 rifles, RPGs, and standard grenades, none of which are available for sale in the USA. How long before the cartels realize that they have far more men and armament than a border crossing and outright attack the police manning the crossing? It could start with the Mexican border control agents abandoning their post to avoid certain death and end with the cartels attacking a border crossing, thus opening up a floodgate through which tens of thousands of illegal immigrants, narcotics traffickers, criminals, and terrorists could flood into the USA in a matter of hours.

If the Mexican drug cartels stop fighting each other and unite, this scenario could rapidly become a catastrophe. Imagine a wave of violent drug cartels overrunning the border, crossing in Nogales and then the entire town. The most frightening thing is that the scenario is entirely plausible. With a foothold in the USA, the flood of people and narcotics would be virtually unstoppable, and we would end up with an urban war in our own borders.

 Make no mistake that America is under an invasion. The army is not that of the Mexican government, but it is an invasion nonetheless. If we continue to turn a blind eye to the situation, it could easily escalate out of control into an international and human catastrophe. We can no longer wait and see what happens on the border and then react to it. Any military strategist will tell you that if you are merely reacting, you are losing.

It’s time that we send the American military, not just the National Guard, to the border to defend the USA, as is the responsibility of the federal government. This suggestion is not meant to disparage the Arizona National Guard, but they are simply not built for large-scale combat operations, and this is no longer just a simple law enforcement situation. We need to secure the border with combat troops and convince the Mexican drug cartels that they are better off squabbling with each other than fighting the USA. In fact, if the border becomes so secure that nothing can get through, the cartels will have to find other routes for their drug trade, leave the border area, and improve the lives of law-abiding Mexicans on the other side of the border as well.

In addition to securing the border, it is time for Mexican President Calderón and Obama to meet to discuss the possibilities of worsening assaults on the border and our possible responses to these events before they actually happen. If protocols and understandings are there beforehand, the likelihood of any incident spinning out of control into a war is greatly reduced.

Finally, Obama needs to reprioritize his administration away from attempting to sue Arizona and toward addressing the problem that prompted Arizona to pass the law in the first place. Only after the border is secure should we talk about what to do about illegal immigrants still in the USA and expanding work permit programs for law-abiding Mexicans to make a living here.

Hat tip to Barbara for the following: Pictures of Drug Bust on Mexican Border:

Just a quaint little villa in the hills – Drug money bought it all! 

INCREDIBLE!! !!!  Take a look at the guns!!
 

I wonder where the confiscated $$$$$ will go?

Photos of a Mexican Drug Lord’s home after being raided

Just a small collection of guns – these people are not really dangerous at all

 

Yes, that is real gold on these guns!

Gold and Titanium 45 Caliber semi automatic pistols – they found 16 like this

Go and kill in the name of the Lord my son! There was a matched pair of these found.

 

357 Magnum semi automatic with solid gold grips

 

This guy had a better gun collection that most legitimate museums do


Man made cave and hot tub inside the home

 

A collection of exotic animals – which were cared for in the grandest fashion by the way

 7 Lions were on the property AND  A very rare Tiger

 

The back yard pool

Exotic art collection – some of which was illegal to own – some stolen

Stacks of cash were found in every nook and cranny

18 plastic bins filled with 100 dollar bills were found

Each of these stacks of 100′s holds 250,000 (a quarter of a million dollars)!

They also had millions in Columbian money and Mexican Pesos although they preferred

American dollars for the most part. (First time that I am glad that our $$ isn’t up to par. I hope they go broke down there like we are)

There was even some stacks of Chinese Yen found in one closet.

More Gold machine guns and pistols – most were never fired, just held for collection value

The money and valuables found in this one house alone, would be enough to pay for health insurance for every man woman and child in the U.S.A. for 12 years! There are believed to be approximately 27 more of these houses in Mexico alone not to mention the ones in other countries who are enriching themselves in the drug trade. These people have so much money, they make the Arab oil sheiks look like welfare recipients. Their money can buy the best politicians, the best cops, the best judges, whatever they need they just throw down stacks of cash and it is theirs!

This is why the drug problem is so difficult to fight.

“Obama Do Your JOB, Secure Our Border”

Jan Brewer doesn’t Live in your Ivory Tower – Ask her!

Jan Brewer: Is this what Obama means by border security?


Harold Hurtt, a former police chief in Houston and Phoenix, has been hired as the director for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Office of State and Local Coordination. As a police chief, Hurtt was a supporter of “sanctuary city” policies, by which illegal immigrants who don’t commit crimes can live without fear of exposure or detainment because police don’t check for immigration papers.

Also, during his tenure as Houston police chief, he criticized ICE’s key program that draws on local law enforcement’s support. The widow of one of the officers, Rodney Johnson, who was fatally shot by an illegal immigrant with a long criminal record, is suing Hurtt for enacting policies that she says led to his death. Hurtt’s position at ICE reportedly pays $180,000 a year.

Shotgun preteen vs. Illegal Alien Home Invaders

BUTTE, MONTANA  
 
Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and Enrico Garza, 26,  probably believed they would easily overpower home-alone 11-year-old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two-story home.

It seems the two crooks never learned two things: they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay-shooting champion since she was nine. Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father’s room and grabbed his 12-gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.

Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the 11-year-old’s knee-crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals. When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled to death before medical help could arrive.

It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45-caliber handgun he took from another home invasion robbery. That victim, 50-year-old David 0′Burien, was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest.

Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, CNN, or ABC news? An 11 year old girl, properly trained, defended her home and herself against two murderous, illegal immigrants and she wins. She is still alive. Now THAT is Gun Control!
