Get Ready for Denials

Border-FenceFox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera accused Matt Drudge’s website of “the worst kind of jingoistic rhetoric ever” for carrying news stories about the dangers of illegal immigration. He said Drudge “is doing his best to stir up a civil war. I mean, shame on Matt Drudge.” Republican Rep. Todd Rokita and his Indiana delegation have been criticized for suggesting the possibility that Latin American children pouring across our southern border are carrying deadly diseases. Some of them have already been discovered to be carrying lice and suffering from disease. We’ve yet to find out what kind of communicable diseases they could spread to American children when schools across the country are forced to admit them.

Unfortunately, many people approach our recent southern border problem as a “humanitarian crisis” and hint that congressmen who want to make securing our border our No. 1 priority are, as President Barack Obama says, “mean.” Others who argue for border security run the risk of being dismissed as racists. The Democrats are hoping that painting the Republicans as mean racists will help them with the Latino vote in November.

Securing our border is not only an immigration issue but, more importantly, a national security issue. International terrorists know that our southern border is insecure. They can simply fly to a Latin American country and then sneak across the border with deadly germ or chemical warfare weapons and dirty bombs, which could be planted anywhere.

According to Breitbart, “a leaked intelligence analysis from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveals the exact numbers of illegal immigrants entering and attempting to enter the U.S. from more than 75 different countries.” It reports that 28 “individuals from Pakistan were caught attempting to sneak into the U.S. this year alone, with another 211 individuals either turning themselves in or being caught at official ports of entry.” Texas Gov. Rick Perry says that the number of apprehended illegal aliens who come from countries with “substantial terrorist ties” is at a record high, countries such as Yemen, Somalia and Saudi Arabia.

On top of this, individuals from nations currently suffering from the world’s largest Ebola outbreak have been caught attempting to sneak into the U.S.

Deroy Murdock’s article titled “The Southern Border: Our Welcome Mat for Terrorists,” for National Review Online (April 25, 2013), reports that “Somalia’s Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane told authorities in 2011 that he earned up to $75,000 per day smuggling East Africans into America. His clients included three al-Shabaab terrorists. As the House report states: ‘Dhakane cautioned that each of these individuals is ready to die for their cause and would fight against the United States if the jihad moved from overseas to the U.S. mainland.'” Many Syrians and Iranians have been caught making illegal entry. Both Syria and Iran are supporters of Hezbollah, have chemical weapons and materials for dirty bombs, and hate “the Great Satan.”

Murdock makes reference to the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Oversight and Management Efficiency study titled “A Line in the Sand: Countering Crime, Violence and Terror at the Southwest Border.” It explained that between September 2001 and September 2012, there were 59 homegrown violent jihadi plots within the United States. The study said that the more violent threat to Americans is the ability of Islamist terrorist organizations, resulting from their growing presence in the Western Hemisphere, to exploit our porous southwestern border and enter the United States undetected.

Here are some questions that should be of concern to every American: Can the U.S. Customs and Border Protection assure Americans that it has arrested every terrorist attempting to make illegal entry to our country? Can it assure us that there are no terrorist cells operating in our country and awaiting word from our enemies to attack us? There’s another question that’s just as important: If there is a terrorist attack through our southern border, will Americans allow President Obama, congressional Democrats, the news media and progressives and liberals to deny that their weak border security policy was responsible?

    I hope and pray the United States will not be attacked again, but if we are I can already hear the chorus from the Left: ” It’s Bush’s fault . . .It’s Bush’s fault!”

    • sundance69

      It is amazing how and what Bush is blamed for after 6-years of being out of office. At what point does this administration assume responsibility for it’s incompetence.

      • JJ

        This administration, and progressives in general , have an aversion to assuming personal responsibility. It’s much easier to blame someone ( Bush, Regan, etc.) or something (racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.) else! Incompetence and stupidity are synonymous with Progressivism.

      • glpage

        Self responsibility is a phrase that does not exist in the lexicon of the leftist. It is a concept that is completely anathema to their existence. The left is interested only in the collective, individualism must not be allowed to exist.

        So, to answer your question with a question, what responsibility?

    • Lanna

      If we are attacked by terrorists in our cities, it will be obvious who has been in charge for 6 years and failed to keep the people safe!

  • Sheik Yerbouti

    Parents in the US are going to want to get their hands on the people who let these disease-carriers in SO willingly.

    • moneekwa

      parents in the us will also want to get their hands on them when their welfare checks are spent on the new arrivals instead, and they can’t afford designer label clothes and illegal drugs any more.

  • jmm64

    It’s Bush’s fault.

  • Josep Xicot

    Every country have it´s our human drama,and our goverments just do nothing,like
    in Italy and Spain,the Left says that we are racist and facist because the a lot of people ask for a different way od control in the border,but it is a matter of a political way of thinking,in which everybody who wants to go to another country is
    free to do it,their freedom first,our security second.

  • Guest

    I haven’t heard or read anywhere that Rokita has suggested that illegals carry diseases. I’ve only heard that he wants a requirement for each to pass a medical screening. Nothing, absolutely nothing wrong with that requirement. Even when Ellis Island was our singular port of entry, there were medical screenings and a hospital on the island

    Oh ! BTW, Terrorists and criminal aliens have already breached our open borders.
    So, Geraldo Rivera…. Kiss my Arse!

  • Americana

    I’m surprised you all concentrate strictly on the southern border when our northern border is equally insecure. Any international terrorists worth their salt know that they can get into the U.S. by any number of means. They don’t just have to come up through Mexico. What’s more, we don’t HAVE a good way to secure our northern border because of the number of lakes stretching across half of it. The Canadians may have our back but they can’t secure the border any more than we can.

    • Pete

      Who has better border controls, Canada or Mexico?

      How many illegals or drugs come across the Canadian border?

      Americana you should change your name to Open borders Americana.

      We should not ignore the Canadian Border, but your argument is an attempt at deflection

      • Americana

        There’s nothing NORTH of Canada, Pete. There are hardly any people who’d wish to flee Canada and take up residence in the U.S. But that doesn’t mean the Canadian route should be taken for granted. As for why Canada doesn’t have a bunch of drug peddlers operating from its soil, the Canadians work for a living but there is definitely some smuggling from Canadian soil.

        (Figures in these charts are from a few years ago.)

        • Pete

          The question posed was how many illegals and drugs from Canada.

          I did not say there were zero. There were smugglers during prohibition. There would still be smugglers today.

          It is about proportion.

          I judge the Mexican/American border to be the greater risk not that the Canadian American border is risk free.

          You judged it is best to carry water for your masters.

          • Americana

            Do you intentionally misinterpret my posts or are you simply so rote in your thinking you’re not even willing to think things through if I write them? I’d agree the southern border is currently the greater risk. Why? Because there are far more roads leading to it, most of the human smuggling is aimed at the Mexican border, and one can buy supplies for any cross-border attempt. If the southern border is closed however, to the extent it can be closed, we have the entire northern border as well as both coasts that are accessible to jihadists.

            Why concentrate on it?

            It is called the pareto principle. You tackle the big problems the left wants to avoid them. They think the southern border problem benefits them. So we are carping about it and you are saying in effect, STFU!

            Carry water much?

            Since you escaped from the university system, this is for you.


          • Americana

            Oh, the self-appointed winner of debates asserts himself again. Maybe if you were better hydrated, you’d get my point. All our borders are extremely vulnerable. If the southern border is closed w/a wall and sensors, we would still have porous borders. That’s not saying we shouldn’t figure out ways to close the southern border. As for your following remark, pfffftttt…

          • Pete

            “I’m surprised you all concentrate strictly on the southern border when our northern border is equally insecure.” -Americana

            Nah, we can handle the northern border and ports of entry such as airports. But as it is it takes a full court press to get anything done on the southern border. You mistake a full court press about the southern border with the fact we don;t care about the north border, the coast or the airports.

            We were promised a border fence in 2006 and by 2001 Janet Napolitano said it is better than it has ever been and it is too expensive and gave up on the border.

            And here you are dutifully running interference.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      Muslims aren’t terrorists. They are jihadists, i.e., mujahideen (holy warriors), instead, waging jihad, which far more than only terrorism is a holy war waged by ALL MUSLIMS both violently and non-violently and by stealth and deception against ALL INFIDELS in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam and its followers supreme throughout the world.

      Indeed, Muslims don’t target primarily innocent civilian infidels because they are terrorists, that is a very false analogy, instead they murder innocent civilian infidels in cold-blood because it is proscribed for them to employ only “total war” tactics per the dictates of Sharia and because murdering innocent civilian infidels in cold blood is the weak underbelly of infidel society. In fact, all Muslims spit on the Geneva Conventions because it is laws that emanate from mere mortal man as opposed to omnipotent Allah.

      Thus, since our political and media elites in this country are as ignorant of the threat emanating from Islam as you are, Muslims don’t have to sneak across one of our borders, as they simply get in through the front door with all the rest of them. Just as the 9/11 violent jihadists did.

      Not to mention that because Canada has even stricter border security laws than America, it is much harder for anyone to sneak into America from our northern border. Meanwhile, a significant portion of Mexico’s economy is already geared upon smuggling both human traffic and drug traffic across the intentionally loosely defended American southern border. Someone needs to crack down on the enormous amounts of hush money and bribes that are being paid to America politicians under the table for the US to finally crack down on the southern border

      • Americana

        Sorry, ObamaYo, jihad may be a tenet of Islam but not all Muslims wage it or are interested in waging it. As for stealth jihad, the stealth jihad you’re always so hot about, that isn’t entirely about Muslims waiting their chance to take over the U.S. by numerical supremacy and strategic demographics or by finally seizing their chance. What you see as a purposeful Muslim invasion is Muslims of various nationalities fleeing civil war and decade-long droughts and famine. You’d try to get into the U.S. as well if you were facing those circumstances.

        Does this mean we shouldn’t take steps to keep track of our Muslim jihadi sympathizers? Not at all. We’ve recently upgraded our surveillance capabilities and that will help immensely in our internal fight against jihadi activities within the U.S. as well as U.S. jihadi support for foreign activities.

        The media elite aren’t unaware of what threats are posed by jihad. That’s a figment of your imagination.

        • knowshistory

          but not all muslims practice jihad. phew. what a relief. thank the deity of your choice that not all muslims want to kill us right now. some of them, thank goodness, are willing to wait until it is safe to kill us at their leisure. so tell us, “Americana”, just how many muslims must want to kill us now to make it a problem? is there a reliable way to discern which of the peaceful darlings want to kill us now, and which ones are content to wait until it is safe to kill us? if they tell us they are willing to wait until we are dead, and only then start to kill our children, and grandchildren, is that ok? I get it, “Americana”, if they will just spare you, and only kill the rest of us, that will be ok, and you will be right. not all muslims are jihadis. just enough of them to kill us.

        • IslamDownpressesHumanity

          Of course not every muslim is a jihadi! After all, someone has to fund and equip them and since the najjis kaffir can’t generally be counted on to do so (except for the corrupt US government and EU) it falls on the peaceful, “moderate”
          muslim to do so. After all islamic terrorism isn’t a for-profit business venture yet is it?

    • moneekwa

      it is no accident that dearbornistan is just across the river from canada, eh?

      they swim over and if they make it ashore they have plenty of places to hide real close by, and sympathizers to help them out. for all i know they can walk over during winter.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Muslim migrants to the USA for obvious reasons are pursuing a non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad by design. If they pursued jihad in the USA in a violent way as opposed to non-violently, they would soon find themselves and their stealth and deceptive jihad back living in the Islamic totalitarian world. Therefore, violent jihad attacks, Mr. Walter, that you misunderstand as somehow being terrorism, even though terrorism isn’t even an Islamic manifestation, would be extremely counterproductive for the Islamic totalitarian world at this stage of the game. Not to mention that Muslims don’t need to sneak in through the back door, as they can all come in through the front door just like the 9/11 violent jihadists all did.

    Nevertheless, if there wasn’t so much willful ignorance of Islam and Islamic totalitarian society among our political and media elites today, mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage, because it is really stealth and deceptive jihad for the strategic purposes of mass Muslim infiltration of our society and for eventual demographic conquest, would already be banned and reversed in America today.

    In any event, I do support sealing off the borders as soon as possible for all the other myriads of reasons and to make that task far easier, we should immediately crack down hard on all the employers that are hiring them and creating the magnet in the first place. Not only to kill the magnet once and for all, but also so that the illegals will be forced to self-deport themselves back from whence they came.

  • NJK

    If there is an attack, I hope the media is at ground zero. I hope many leftists are at ground zero. They need to personally feel what they’ve done. Everyone seems to think 9/11 was a figment of their imagination.

  • Pentax Princess

    The media will NEVER hold them responsible for any terror attack that happen through our southern border, NEVER. Somehow George Bush will be blamed if a terror attack happens on Obama’s watch. “It was all the Republican’s fault because they didn’t give the 63 billion dollars I asked for.”

  • veritaseequitas

    Easy answer. The Left’s whipping boys are GWB and the GOP in general. They don’t need any more than that.
