I’ve seen my share of evil over the years, but what we, as a nation, are experiencing now is simply unbelievable. Oh sure, we all know history, and we all know what evil tyrants and dictators have been capable of, but this happening in America. This is supposed to be a nation of laws, not men. America was founded on the notion that government works for We, the People, not the other way around.
In his latest attack on the American people, President Obama is threatening to stop enforcing our laws, and has already started releasing terror in the streets. What Obama and his henchmen propose will undoubtedly cost American lives. History shows us it will.
First let’s start with a this threat from Janet Napolitano, courtesy of the Washington Post: [emphasis mine]]
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warned Monday that her agency would be forced to furlough 5,000 border control agents under mandatory spending cuts, likely allowing more illegal immigrants into the country and potentially compromising national security.
Napolitano said the cuts, known as the sequester, would disrupt the Department of Homeland Security’s ability to conduct customs inspections at ports, leading to increased waiting times for travelers and cargo shipments. Disaster relief funding would be reduced by $1 billion, she added, meaning relief for victims of natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy and tornados in Joplin, Mo., and Tuscaloosa, Ala., could be cut. …
Asked if the cuts would make the country more susceptible to acts of terrorism, Napolitano said: “It’s always a threat. We do what we can to minimize the risk, but the sequester makes it awfully, awfully tough.”
That was just testing the waters. Letting people know what will happen if we cut any spending whatsoever. The very notion that in an over $3 TRILLION a year budget, that national security, not one of the thousands, if not millions, of non-essential programs would be cut, is insanity defined.
Oh, and the sequestration cuts the fools in Washington are fighting over aren’t even real spending cuts. They are merely reductions in the INCREASE of spending that goes on from year to year. There are no serious human beings involved in this battle. Not a single one.
Next comes this from Immigration. From the New York Times:
Federal immigration officials have released hundreds of detainees from detention centers around the country in recent days in a highly unusual effort to save money as automatic budget cuts loom in Washington, officials said Tuesday.

Representative Robert W. Goodlatte of Virginia, who said the releases were a political gambit by the Obama administration that undermined the continuing negotiations over comprehensive immigration reform and jeopardized public safety.
“It’s abhorrent that President Obama is releasing criminals into our communities to promote his political agenda on sequestration,” said Mr. Goodlatte, who, as chairman of the Judiciary Committee, is running the House hearings on immigration reform. “By releasing criminal immigrants onto the streets, the administration is needlessly endangering American lives.”
[ … ]
Officials said the releases, which began last week and continued on Tuesday, were a response to the possibility of automatic governmentwide budget cuts, known as sequestration, which are scheduled to take effect on Friday.
“As fiscal uncertainty remains over the continuing resolution and possible sequestration, ICE has reviewed its detained population to ensure detention levels stay within ICE’s current budget,” the agency’s spokeswoman, Gillian M. Christensen, said in a statement. The agency’s budget for custody operations in the current fiscal year is $2.05 billion, officials said, and as of Saturday, ICE was holding 30,773 people in its detention system.
Immigration officials said Tuesday that they had no plans to release substantially more detainees this week, though they warned that more releases were still possible depending on the outcome of budget negotiations.
They refused to specify exactly how many detainees were released, or where the releases took place. But immigrants’ advocates around the country have reported that detainees were freed in several places, including Hudson County, N.J.; Polk County, Tex.; Broward County, Fla.; New Orleans; and from centers in Alabama, Arizona, Georgia and New York.
While immigration officials occasionally free detainees on supervised release, immigration advocates said that the surge of recent releases — so many in such a short span of time — was extraordinary.
It costs a lot of money to detain these illegal aliens, and not all are violent offenders, but the vast majority are indeed a menace to society, and will cause problems. All one has to do is look at the many repeat offenders among the illegal alien population. Many have committed multiple rapes, and murders.
Of course, it would be a heck of a lot simpler, and cheaper, to just secure the border, and not allow ANY illegals to cross over in the first place, but our government, politicians in BOTH PARTIES, is more interested in rewarding the law breakers, hoping for votes, rather than securing America, and keeping Americans, their employers, safe and secure. It’s an unspeakable evil at every level. Those pushing amnesty for illegals must be stopped at any and all costs. We’ve seen this before, and all it will do is ensure even more illegals flood our nation.
Our entire government is out of control, and politicians in both parties have put America’s very existence in peril. That the Republican Party is allowing Obama to frame the narrative, and then does nothing while he threatens national security, and puts the lives of every single American citizen in danger, tells you what you need to know about the GOP.
It’s time for the American people to rise up, and reject politics, and both political parties. The time for games is over. It’s time for serious people to take control of things, and use a little common sense and stop all of the grandstanding.
Obama must be held responsible for every single crime committed by these released criminals, but he won’t. Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder are directly responsible for the mass murder of over 300 Mexican citizens, as well as border agents Brian Terry and Jamie Zapata, and not a single member of Congress has done anything remotely substantial to hold these two accountable in any way for the Fast and Furious debacle. [Never mind Benghazi]
A great evil has America by the throat and it’s up to the American people to right these wrongs. We cannot count on politicians to do it for us. Stand up and make some noise. It’s time to be heard!
