Unless, of course, you are in Turkey.
Maybe our Mexicans are smarter than their Syrians?
Yep. Costs too much, difficult terrain, yatta yatta…
Mr. B, however, shows us otherwise:
Unless, of course, you are in Turkey.
Maybe our Mexicans are smarter than their Syrians?
Turkey sealing Syrian border with giant wall
The problem isn’t the wall. It’s the will to build it.
Educated people need to balance the need to protect the Republic from drug smuggling, human trafficking, arms smuggling and terrorism with the need to protect our sovereignty and freedom here.
In short, a passive method (such as a wall) beats running willy-nilly all over the Southwest, looking for yet another border breach, and searching people and vehicles without warrants. And airplane and drone surveillance. (Yeah, it’s that pesky Fourth Amendment, again!)
Of course, philosophically, they need to look at WHY it’s so difficult to construct said wall, WHY the administration frowns on border enforcement, and maintaining a national cultural unity. Assimilation? WHY is that frowned upon?
And WHY aren’t we concerned with the Canadian border? I’d bet folks come in that direction, as well!
Qui Bono!? (Who benefits?) Who benefits from NOT enforcing border security, cultural cohesiveness and promoting assimilation? And from allowing the smuggling to continue unabated, while playing at enforcement?
(Hint – It’s not just the illegal aliens…)
Seriously? You clicked on that? *sigh*
Yeah, I’ve got nothing but clouds and rain this morning, as I had nothing but clouds and rain all day yesterday, and I won’t even pretend to be cheery about it. Too early in the day to start drinking, I may go back to bed.
But because TUAK isn’t the government or its MSM joyboy, here’s some truth in advertising:
Just a hunch that the rank-and-file of the BP are chomping at the bit waiting for the current administration to vacate.
UN – BELIEVABLE !
Bullets are cheaper and more effective than tear gas canisters.
Bullets and bombs are merely war’s last recourse. The actual front of most conflicts occurs in the vacuum between men’s ears. One gains a deep appreciation of this fact when watching the rapid social effects that result from orchestrated media onslaughts. The images and narratives carpet bombed daily into mentally defenseless targets demonstrate the undeniable power of air superiority.
And when spiritual fortifications have been flattened, antagonists put boots on the ground. That’s what’s happening now in unmoated areas of the West. But eventually even the dullest clucks begin to understand that virtue signaling on migration is subject to the law of diminishing returns. Conspicuously accommodating 100 brown people is a boast, while 100 million is a eulogy. And most prefer their praise served warm.
So what we are seeing presently in Europe is a people slowly realizing their moral vainglory is best taken in moderation. Unfortunately for them, that doesn’t much address the designs of a billion or so global refugees fleeing the war in Syria. You don’t simply lock the door after other people have decided they want in.
For once a large enough number of outsiders determine your house is precisely what they want, seeking your permission loses much of its appeal. That’s when fences start falling, tear gas starts wafting, and it dimly begins to dawn that invasion doesn’t require the Red Army.
Here’s one piece on the siege of Indomeni.More @ The Kakistocracy(from Brock Townsend)
Agents threatened with termination for enforcing law
Yeah, I saw this in my email and scoffed at it! (The source was to me, questionable)
Then, my mole inside the BP confirmed the story – before I could even ask him.
As a lame duck President, does he not even care anymore about his ‘legacy’?
Or is this just more Cloward & Piven, progressive claptrap, designed to ‘level the playing field’?
How does a Chief Executive, with the duty and responsibility for enforcing the law, even make such a decision?
Of course, he has HIS armed guards.
He should try living in Naco or Nogales!

As Texas officials spar with Obama administration lawyers over refugee resettlement, Amarillo is building Muslim “ghettos.”
Under federal refugee programs, the North Texas town has become home to more than 1,000 Mideast migrants – giving Amarillo the highest refugee ratio in the country.
“Our education system is overloaded with kids who can’t speak English. We have something like 22 languages spoken in our schools,” said William Sumerford, a local taxpayer activist.
City Commissioner Randy Burkett is considering a plan to halt further refugee settlements. But Mayor Paul Harpole isn’t optimistic about the city’s authority to push back.
“We’ve been a giving community, and it’s a huge disservice to bring in refugees in numbers that we’re not able to handle. We create small ghettos,” Harpole told Watchdog.org.More @ Liberty Unyielding
e.g. reduction to absurdity
“If all the cool kids jumped off a cliff, would you follow?” Like that.
From Say Uncle:
Too big to jail
A common theme put forward by a few of the presidential candidates at the last Republican debate was that, gosh darnit, you just couldn’t deport all those people who were breaking the law because it was impractical or impossible. Because there’s so many of them. The numbers tossed out were 3, 9, and 11 million, IIRC.
You see, it’s not possible or practical to enforce the law as it is written, so they should ignore it or let it slide or change the law. I welcome this precedent. How about 3, 9 or 11 million of us stop paying taxes? How about 3, 9 or 11 million of us ignore NFA laws? How about 3, 9 or 11 million of us start smoking marijuana? Or whatever anyone’s pet issue.
In two of three of my examples, I’m guessing the reaction wouldn’t be “gosh, that’s impossible”.
Some might respond, “I see the difference being the last time they did a round up and expulsion was in the 1950’s. It was a different time and culture.”
Of course, same reduction in argument applies. 🙂
George Soros (or as Glenn Beck calls him, the ‘spooky dude’) openly admits ‘national borders are the enemy’.
If he would a libertarian, I might believe he has an open, free-market agenda.
BUT, he IS George Soros…
(From The Natural News, in part:)
Following Orban’s statement, Soros sent an email to Bloomberg Business, in which he claimed that his foundations actually help “uphold European values,” while Orban’s actions in bolstering the Hungarian border and thus impeding a huge influx of migrants “undermine those values.”
“His plan treats the protection of national borders as the objective and the refugees as an obstacle,” Soros added. “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”
In October, Orban accused pro-immigration non-governmental organizations (NGOs) of “drawing a living from the immigration crisis.” He singled out those funded by Soros, who is a strong supporter of transnational bodies like the European Union and the United Nations. Also, his Open Society Foundation (OSF) provides assistance for pro-immigration activists, and he is well-known in the U.S. and internationally for supporting “progressive” (read far-Left) causes like the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation and the Center for American Progress.
In fact, the OSF website notes: “We believe that migration and asylum policy should be grounded in economic and demographic realities, not driven by temporary political considerations or popular misconceptions.
“In Europe, many of our civil society partners are raising their voices demanding a common European approach in line with international human rights commitments.”
In a recent interview, Orban said that immigration and multiculturalism were working in tandem to change the face and traditions of Europe, it’s “Christian roots” in particular, all while creating “parallel societies” (just like mass immigration in the U.S. – and isn’t it peculiar that President Obama and Lefty Soros have the same view on mass immigration?).
So sayeth the ‘spooky dude’.
Do you think they are looking to destabilize existing governments by taxing the system until it breaks? Just as Cloward and Piven suggest?
Naw, just a coincidence…
Pay no attention to the spooky dude behind the curtain.
Or in the White House.
This letter, purportedly written by a Czech doctor working in a Germany hospital, illuminates the true blessings of diversity presently being wrought by the mass Islamic migration:
Eyewitness from a Munich hospital: A friend in Prague has a friend, who, as a retired physician, had returned to work at a Munich area hospital where they needed an anaesthesiologist. I correspond with her and she forwarded me her email. Yesterday, at the hospital we had a meeting about how the situation here and at the other Munich hospitals is unsustainable. Clinics cannot handle emergencies, so they are starting to send everything to the hospitals.
Many Muslims are refusing treatment by female staff and, we, women, are refusing to go among those animals, especially from Africa. Relations between the staff and migrants are going from bad to worse. Since last weekend, migrants going to the hospitals must be accompanied by police with K-9 units.
Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases that we, in Europe, do not know how to treat them. If they receive a prescription in the pharmacy, they learn they have to pay cash. This leads to unbelievable outbursts, especially when it is about drugs for the children. They abandon the children with pharmacy staff with the words: “So, cure them here yourselves!” So the police are not just guarding the clinics and hospitals, but also large pharmacies.
Truly we said openly: Where are all those who had welcomed in front of TV cameras, with signs at train stations?! Yes, for now, the border has been closed, but a million of them are already here and we will definitely not be able to get rid of them.
Until now, the number of unemployed in Germany was 2.2 million. Now it will be at least 3.5 million. Most of these people are completely unemployable. A bare minimum of them have any education. What is more, their women usually do not work at all. I estimate that one in ten is pregnant. Hundreds of thousands of them have brought along infants and little kids under six, many emaciated and neglected. If this continues and German re-opens its borders, I’m going home to the Czech Republic. Nobody can keep me here in this situation, not even double the salary than at home. I went to Germany, not to Africa or the Middle East.
Even the professor who heads our department told us how sad it makes him to see the cleaning woman, who for 800 Euros cleans every day for years, and then meets young men in the hallways who just wait with their hand outstretched, want everything for free, and when they don’t get it they throw a fit.
I really don’t need this! But I’m afraid that if I return, that at some point it will be the same in the Czech Republic. If the Germans, with their nature cannot handle this, there in Czechia it would be total chaos. Nobody who has not come in contact with them has no idea what kind of animals they are, especially the ones from Africa, and how Muslims act superior to our staff, regarding their religious accommodation.
For now, the local hospital staff has not come down with the diseases they brought here, but, with so many hundreds of patients every day – this is just a question of time.
In a hospital near the Rhine, migrants attacked the staff with knives after they had handed over an 8-month-old on the brink of death, which they had dragged across half of Europe for three months. The child died in two days, despite having received top care at one of the best pediatric clinics in Germany. The physician had to undergo surgery and two nurses are laid up in the ICU. Nobody has been punished.
The local press is forbidden to write about it, so we know about it through email. What would have happened to a German if he had stabbed a doctor and nurses with a knife? Or if he had flung his own syphilis-infected urine into a nurse’s face and so threatened her with infection? At a minimum he’d go straight to jail and later to court. With these people – so far, nothing has happened.
And so I ask, where are all those greeters and receivers from the train stations?
Sitting pretty at home, enjoying their non-profits and looking forward to more trains and their next batch of cash from acting like greeters at the stations. If it were up to me I would round up all these greeters and bring them here first to our hospital’s emergency ward, as attendants. Then, into one building with the migrants so they can look after them there themselves, without armed police, without police dogs who today are in every hospital here in Bavaria, and without medical help.
Reconquista 2.0 is coming. The new Ordo Draconum is coming. And mark my words, this wave of mass migration will mark the end of the West’s well-meaning but ill-considered experiment in religious freedom. Forget “European union”. It is time to bring back the nations of Christendom.
The writer is wrong. The lesson of history is clear: the nations of Christendom can and will get rid of the invaders. It can be done the Spanish way, the German way, or the Romanian way. And the longer it takes to substantively address the issue, the more likely it is that one of the two latter methods will be embraced by the public and utilized.
Immigration is rape culture. Immigration is cultural rape.
It’s what makes the World go ’round.
What do I mean?
If we all viewed things exactly the same, how would that work? Religion, politics, types of food? Sex?
The current President? The last President?
99+% of the folks I know have NOT recently been to Europe. But most have an opinion regarding the refugee crisis. Even to the point there may not be a crisis!
I’ve had recent conversations with two liberal friends (yes, I have those) regarding what they know about the goings-on in Europe. Apparently, those nasty non-Syrian White folks are only interested in protecting the sovereignty of their individual nations, and just hate being forced to accept Islam and the terrorism which seems to be attached to it.
I don’t agree with them. Not because they are liberals, but because I’ve a different World view. Even the most liberal of reportage indicates the vast majority of immigrants are young adult males. Where are the women and children – don’t they need asylum, as well?
And then there’s the increase in attacks on non-Muslim folks by roving bands of Muslim folks. And a breakdown of the rule-of-law. And these attacks are by men.
It’s 711 A.D. all over again! Except this time it’s not just the Iberian peninsula.
Some here think there is a breakdown of traditional American society, and many of the (illegal) immigrants arriving here are keeping to their cultures to the exclusion of American culture!
And the current administration wants to increase the number of legal immigrants from war-torn Islamic nations.
Because, not doing so would be racist and politically incorrect.
I sense a dangerous pattern here.
Not because of xenophobia, but because of dilution of American Culture. People are supposed to want to come here because of the freedoms we offer, not to abuse that freedom to force the end of our culture.
Sharia Law, anyone?
Another example of The American Paradox. Being free enough to allow differences of opinion, but not so free as to accept poison pills into The Republic.
It might be too late for Europe (Muslims wanting to stop observance of Oktoberfest). I hope it is not too late here.
No, not the story you thought…
(Although my thoughts and prayers are with the dead, wounded and their families and friends in Oregon.)
A jury has found two men guilty of murder in the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent whose death exposed the botched federal operation known as Fast and Furious.
The jury found Jesus Leonel Sanchez-Meza and Ivan Soto-Barraza guilty of all counts. Jurors had begun deliberations Wednesday afternoon, a week after the trial began in federal court in Tucson.
Sanchez-Meza, also known as Lionel Portillo-Meza, and Soto-Barraza were part of a five-man crew that planned on robbing drug smugglers when they encountered Agent Brian Terry and three others on Dec. 14, 2010.
(Reports are they will receive life in prison…)
additionally, from Fox News
The killing led to intense political rhetoric as Republicans sought to hold the Obama administration accountable over the Fast and Furious operation. They conducted a series of inquiries into how the Justice Department allowed guns to end up in the hands of criminals.
Former Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt after he refused to divulge documents for a congressional investigation into the matter. Since then, the Justice Department has focused on arresting and trying all suspects involved.
