<quoted text>Obama has already lost two wars, bring all the soldiers home and put them on the border. Either we are a country or we are not. The President said he can do what he wants. Secure the border we are in danger. Obama took the oath to Protect and Serve didn't he? Yes, Barack Obama is getting most of the blame for the crisis of mass child illegal alien migration into the Southern border–and he deserves a great deal of it because he is the one who gave illegal alien “DREAM”“kids” instant citizenship and will give it to these “kids,” too
Yes, Bush signed this law. And your Congressman and/or Senators probably voted for it, after Angelina Jolie lobbied them on it. But you won’t be able to find out for sure because the House passed the measure by a voice vote, not a roll call vote, and the Senate passed it by unanimous consent (so all of you in America can blame your Senators for the current crisis). Here’s an ICE press release heralding the Bush sneak expansion of child illegal alien rights:
On December 23, President Bush signed into law a bill that enhances measures to combat human trafficking. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Assistant Secretary John Torres were among 16 federal agency and private organizational leaders in the Oval Office who witnessed the signing of H.R. 7311, the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008. Elyse Smith, daughter of Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), also attended the signing event. The bill, which was passed by voice vote in the House and unanimous consent in the Senate on December 10, authorizes appropriations for FY 2008 through 2011 for the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000.
By the way, you think these male “youth” gang members coming over the border are being trafficked as sex slaves? Think again.


So when will you whiners quit blaming Obama for not sending them back right away.

That was my point, dipstick.

My God you people are dumber than sh*t.
Good grief, who comes up with this nonsense and why do you lamely repeat it?

The difference in the The Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) from the old version is
" Prior to the enactment of this law, minors who entered the United States illegally and who were apprehended at the time of entry, were placed in deportation proceedings. That is they were allowed to enter the United States but were given a notification to appear before an immigration judge. Under this new law, if a minor is apprehended upon entry and has well founded fear of persecution, this minor will be allowed to enter the United States and apply for political asylum with immigration without having to see and Immigration Judge."

There are still standards on what can be called political asylum and the children can still be deported if the claims are unfounded.

It’s now official: On foreign policy, Barack Obama is worse than Jimmy Carter.

For decades, Carter’s presidency was synonymous with weakness on the world stage. The late 1970’s was the era of double-digit inflation, a worldwide oil crisis, Iranian hostages and Soviet military advances from Latin America to Afghanistan. So pathetic was America’s predicament at the time that the late Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy mounted a primary challenge to Carter from the left.

Obama’s rise to power mirrored his Democratic predecessor’s in many ways. Both men came to office in the wake of widespread public disenchantment with the political establishment, and promoted themselves as outsiders and breaths of fresh air. Both men spoke of surmounting what they portrayed as Americans’ exaggerated anxieties about the dangers hyped by fear-mongering conservatives.

For Carter, in a 1977 commencement speech, it was “our inordinate fear of communism” that Americans needed to overcome. For Obama, in his 2009 Cairo address, it was the “fear” and “mistrust” that had grown between the West and Muslim world in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Both men came into office emphasizing the promotion of human rights as a crucial dimension of American foreign policy. And both men gave the impression that their good intentions would be enough to accomplish these Herculean tasks.

Unfortunately, as is often the case, the reality of the world came crashing down.

Biker Rally on Cinco de Julio – Bring Tahmooressi Home, Send Illegals Back to Theirs
by Rick Wells

In response to the loss of citizen control and a place for common sense in America’s government, John Harrington and Pete Santilli have joined forces and are leading an event called “Cinco de Julio.” It will take place, as the name indicates, on the fifth of July and is an effort to rally people to take their government back in a peaceful manner through civil disobedience.

Two issues are at the forefront of the objectives which inspired the rally, the release of Marine Sgt Andrew Tahmooressi from a Mexican prison, and a cessation of the importation in violation of American Immigration Law and sovereignty of hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens.

A motorcycle rally at the Tijuana border crossing is the central component of the event, with efforts to disrupt traffic flow to the point of a virtual shutdown of the border being discussed as objectives.

In an online broadcast, Santilli encouraged his listeners to engage in civil disobedience on July 5th and to just stop on the freeway if they see DHS buses transporting illegals effectively blocking their paths. Santilli said he’s sick and tired of not just watching Barack Obama do what he does and the DHS and mainstream media do what they do. He’s sick and tired of watching the apathetic Americans just sit there and not do anything about it.

He’s asking for four-wheeled vehicle drivers to join the bikers in this effort, challenging the everyday American to do something to retake control of their country.

John Harrington, the owner of Shield Tactical, has been heavily involved recently in efforts to free Sgt Tahmooressi and will lead the biker contingent at the event.

You like to post pure nonsense. It is obvious given the poll numbers the public does not like Obama's policies.

Obammy dithers.

It is the only thing he is good at besides golf and complaining its not his fault. Nothing ever is. He doesn't know about anything until he reads about it in the newspaper and its always a right wing conspiracy.

Obammy has beaten Carter in weakness. At least Carter had the brains to grow a pair at the end.

It is barely remembered today, but, for all the derision heaped upon Carter as a weak and feckless President, he eventually responded to foreign aggression in tough and concrete ways. In November 1979, Iranian revolutionaries — fresh after having overthrown the American-allied Shah — seized the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 American diplomats hostage. In December, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan.

Gone was the President Carter who had scolded Americans for their “fear” of the communist behemoth.

By January, Carter announced a series of proposals directed at weakening America’s adversaries. First was a 5% increase in defense spending, a move that angered many of his Democratic allies in Congress who had taken to slashing the defense budget in the wake of the Vietnam War.

In his State of the Union address, Carter announced what would later come to be known as the Carter Doctrine: that the United States would use military force to protect its vital interests in the Persian Gulf.

Next came an embargo on grain and agricultural technology to the Soviet Union. Carter also declared that the United States would boycott the 1980 Moscow summer Olympics unless the Soviets withdrew their troops from Afghanistan. When they did not, he began covert funding of Afghan rebel fighters.

Conservatives like to credit Ronald Reagan with ending the Cold War. To the extent that the collapse of the Soviet Union was brought about by American policies and not the internal contradictions and weaknesses of the communist system itself (a debate that engages historians to this day), the last year of the Carter administration laid the groundwork.

The correlations between the world situation in the twilight of the Carter administration and in the second Obama term are hard to ignore. Once again, Russia has invaded a neighbor.

Only this time, that neighbor is on the European continent, and Moscow went so far as to annex — not merely attack — its territory.

And once again the Middle East is in flames, with the prospect of another Islamist movement taking control over a state, this time in Iraq.

But rather than respond to the collapsing world order by supporting our allies and undermining our adversaries, the Obama administration dithers. It is an indication of just how worrisome the situation is that many in Washington are pining for the resolve and fortitude of Jimmy Carter.

Are you now saying that people don't want the things I posted?

Lets compare polls concerning Obama's policies with polls concerning Republicans or better yet, your Tea Party.
