Events in the Middle East, and in Iraq specifically, seem to be erupting with a brutality that few in the West have the stomach, or balls, to comprehend. Many here in the United States decry any notion that we should get involved in Iraq again, saying that the conflict is between the Shiites and the Sunnis and does not concern us. Oh, if only that were true; but upon his release by Obama in 2009, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), warned his American jailers that he would see them in New York. Given the current immigration crisis we now face, wherein the doors have been flung open for all who wish to come in, it would not be surprising if the terrorists of ISIS plan to trek to New York by way of our southern border.
In an interview with Fox News, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) stated that Texas currently has a record number of “other than Mexicans” coming across. Many of these are determined to do us harm, and Perry warned the Obama administration of this trend in 2012, saying:
“We have record high numbers of other than Mexicans being apprehended at the border. These are people that are coming from states like Syria that have substantial connections back to terrorist regimes and terrorist operations. So we’re seeing record, historic high numbers of these individuals being apprehended.”
“We flagged this issue in 2012 and have yet to even have a response as far as I know, from not just, not from the president, but not even from his administration.”
Even worse, the Mexican drug cartels are in cahoots with the terrorists and are helping to smuggle them across. Filmmaker, Chris Burgard, detailed the crisis 9 years ago in a documentary entitled BORDER. Burgard’s account:
A few years back, I was at a lunch with then Minority Leader Boehner. I had just spent several days with border law enforcement, staging on a remote East Texas ranch. The ranch wife had reported Middle Eastern men being smuggled across the river and through her ranch. The cartels sent a message to her sister on the Mexican side of the river: “Tell your sister to shut the f**k up, or we will cut her head off and take it back to Chihuahua.”
Some of the members of these drug cartels are arguably more brutal and barbaric than al-Baghdadi. It was recently reported that Mexican drug syndicate, Sinaloa, hired members of the gang, La Mara Salvatrucha (or “MS-13”), to travel from Los Angeles to recover 30 pounds of meth and $200,000 that had been stolen in St. Paul, Minnesota. Sinaloa’s drug trafficking into the Midwest has been quite lucrative and MS-13 is sadistically effective at extracting information. Two teenagers in the area found that out when they were fingered as the thieves, kidnapped, tortured and threatened with death until the enforcers were satisfied that they were not the culprits. MS-13 presently boasts over 70,000 members all over the United States. The gang has become such an imposing force that even the pandering Obama administration classified it as an “international crime group” in 2012.
Incredibly, as Obama is enlisting law enforcement agencies to track down MS-13, he and his minions are knowingly allowing gang members to stream across the border in the current exodus. Many of them have direct ties to MS-13, but because they are teenagers they will not be deported. Instead they will be labeled as “DREAMers” and allowed to stay. In fact, the border patrol has been forbidden from enforcing the law, as they have been turned into nursemaids for thousands of illegal children. These children are receiving better care, at taxpayer expense, than even many who are homeless citizens and American kids in the U.S. foster care system.
It is clear that the Obama administration, with help from GOP enablers, has made this country increasingly more dangerous just within the last couple of weeks through their amnesty by proxy scheme. All the while, the ruling elite is trying to make it increasingly more difficult for law abiding citizens to defend themselves, as they double down in their efforts to restrict the purchase of firearms and ammunition.
The primary function of the United States government is to protect and defend American citizens. Not only is President Barack Obama failing to protect the citizenry of this country, he is knowingly, willfully and actively putting us at risk. This man should not just be impeached…he should be lead out of the White House in handcuffs!
When Obama drew a “red line” against Syria’s Bashir Assad for his (alleged) use of chemical weapons, the world witnessed proof that our paper tiger President is completely full of crap. Assad crossed that line and Obama did nothing. The message was sent loud and clear: America is a super-power no more. Thus, we have a world in absolute turmoil. Yet, the red line that is our border is being crossed on a daily basis and the ruling class is rolling out the red carpet for those who would love to destroy this country. But “what difference does it make” to a lame duck socialist? He has a security detail. When is the next tee time?
It feels as if our beautiful America is like a wounded animal surrounded on all sides by wild dogs who are ready to rip her to shreds and feast on the remains. At the same time, we have a President who is responsible for inflicting many of those wounds himself, and now he’s content to observe the carnage for his own amusement.
