Chris Matthews: "People That
Believe In Border Protection"
Are "Right-Wingers Or Idiots"

Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/29/2013 12:02:10 PM

CHRIS MATTHEWS: People that believe in border protection, who believe you can stop somebody from coming into this country by higher towers, or more drones, or more people working there, I think are right-wingers or idiots. If you want to work and you´re looking for a job, you´re going to come to America, Congresswoman. You´re going to come in here and you´re going to find a way in, whether you have to take a boat, an airplane, or swim. Whatever you have to do, you´re going to get here. And my question is, are we going to have a

Yeah, he´s a moron. But most of the people don´t understand the size of the problem. Open Google Maps and search Brownsville TX. Then zoom in on the border. The real border is easily 10 times the point-to-point distance and it moves as the river meanders. Fencing the centerline of the river is impossible, and fencing the bank IS nearly so.

The fly in the ointment and the flaw in the argument is the unexamined and in fact untrue assumption that all illegal immigrants are in the country to work and that they all work for businesses that can be regulated. It is also false that a nation is unable to control its borders. And it is a false either/or choice to oppose border security and strict enforcement of work permits. Obviously both are part of the solution. For a guy who seems reasonably bright, Chris Matthews can dish out more confused and irrational thinking in less time than anyone else I can think of. He seems to lack the capacity to examine and analyze whatever pops into his mind at the moment but instead has to blurt it out on the spot, ready or not. He serves as an excellent example of the liberal habit of using emotions to do his thinking for him - and, of course, of starting with his conclusions and working backwards to construct whatever emotional "arguments" he can muster to support them. Confusion hath here truly made his masterpiece.

So, Chrissy -- how many illegals are living in your house?

You don´t see the point of that? Well, Chrissy, you´re telling all of us that we have to open our homes [America] to illegals. So clearly, it´s right [and necessary] to ask if you have. If you speak from knowledge or from undemonstrated assumptions?

Pay attention, Chrissy -- America is great, it is necessary, it is unique in part because America and Americans show the way. It isn´t great because it gives away what Americans, under American principles and values, have built -- culturally, economically, socially, scientifically, and the rest.

Furthermore, neither you nor anyone else on the Left [hmmm -- or on the "Right"] has any claim or right to give away the blood and toil-earned heritages to those whose only interest is in having, but not in earning, what Americans have earned and built for themselves and for their posterity.

Got it?

Bravo, #9.

The other point, so rarely mentioned, is that an open border also lets in people who may wish us harm. We don´t know who is crossing the border. Are they workers? Are they people looking for a handout from our welfare system? Are they terrorists?

Another pesky inconvenient truth that Tweety Bird Matthews has left out is that the uneducated masses from South of the Border whom he claims come here to ´´do the work Americans won´t do´´ can only do so because our liberal failure of a welfare system pays the Americans who should be doing those jobs to feel entitled and sit on their arses and freeload of the taxpayers. If we got rid of the welfare freeloaders, those jobs would dry up in a dayumed hurry as the freeloaders realize they´d better flip burgers and mop floors or they won´t be able to eat.

This guy is a moron. An effective enhanced e-verify system that could keep most illegal alien impostors with bogus ID out of US employment would do more to stop illegal immigration then trying to stop them at the borderline. Why would most prospective illegal aliens come here if they knew that they had little chance to get a job, get on any of the social welfare programs, or eventually be granted amnesty?

The answer is they would not come in the first place.

#2: "Fencing the centerline of the river is impossible, and fencing the bank IS nearly so."

What can be conceived can be created. The Great Wall of China, over 4000 miles long, was built before the advent of modern construction machinery. The fence on our southern border would not have to be built along the centerline of the river or even along its banks. It could be built up to several hundred yards inside U.S. territory. I picture TWO fences, a primary and secondary separated by a "no man´s land", with watchtowers and heavily patrolled by vehicles and soldiers on foot. Aliens captured between the fences would be escorted back to their country. No one would make it to the secondary fence. No one would be hurt provided they submitted to the patrols and returned home. It would be expensive to build and maintain, but I do not think it could possibly cost more than what illegal aliens are costing now.

It will never happen.

In a sense, he is right. There isn´t enough security to stop people who are determined to get in.

The problem we have is that the Federal govenrment and in many cases sanctuary cites and state that are bound and dtermined NOT to enforce the law once people do sneak in. If we simply enforced the law, fewer people would be ´rewarded´ for sneaking in and fewer would attempt to do so.

We don´t need a fence, that´s too easily defeated. We need to eliminate the reasons the illegal come here, it´s just that simple.

Free education, free citizenship to babies born here, food stamps, charities designed to cloth and house them, etc. With out these incentives the vast majority of illegals would stay put.

The risk/benefit ratio is massively weighted in favor of potential border crossers, suggesting that no level of detection and apprehension is apt to discourage invaders.

The term invaders is used advisedly. How would Americans -even Leftists- respond if informed that millions upon millions of people were crossing the border in a short span of time? This is what happened in many places on the margins of the late Western Roman empire.

The famed Western barbarian invasions were frequently peaceful and in slow motion - migrations rather than armed assaults. And the Romans came to depend more and more upon the barbarians to make up and even command their essentially all volunteer army. America´s dependence upon cheap labor and its unwillingness to protect its borders has an ominous precedent here.

When the (supposed) figure of illegal aliens has reached 11 million, most of them from south of the border, we are talking about a migration or an invasion. Left unchecked, allowed to continue, it will destroy the republic. The irony is that foreigners come to America to get away from the very things they bring with them and introduce into American culture. This cannot go on indefinitely.

Really Chrissy? Do you have a fence around your house? Do you lock your doors? You must be a right wing loony if you do! You don´t need those "borders" at your house! You need to just let anyone walk into your house and make themselves at home. They should be able to sit in your chair, watch your television, eat your food and do whatever they feel like in there. Why not? That is what you are advocating for our country. Same thing!

Foreign Policy is ‘Spinning Out of Control’

Secretary of State John Kerry took exception Tuesday to an assertion by a Republican senator that the Obama administration’s foreign policy is “spinning out of control,” declaring that “that’s just not true.” “You can’t help but get the impression our foreign policy is just spinning out of control,” Sen. Jim Risch (R-Idaho) said during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the State Department budget. “And we are losing control in virtually every area that we are trying to do something in.” Risch cited developments in Russia, Iran, North Korea, Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations – but focused

The proliferation of federal agencies with armed agents is one of the most worrisome aspects of the growth in government.

One of soldier Lee Rigby´s murderers has launched an appeal against his whole life prison sentence, the Judicial Office has confirmed. Michael Adebolajo, 29, together with Michael Adebowale, 22, mowed down Fusilier Rigby in car, before hacking him to death in Woolwich, south east London, in May last year. Adebolajo was condemned to die behind bars - with judge Mr Justice Sweeney saying the killer had ´no real prospect of rehabilitation´. However, Adebowale was sentenced to a minimum of 45 years in jail because of his younger age, mental health problems and ´lesser role´ in the 25-year-old father-of-one´s murder. Now,

“What a difference a day makes — 24 little hours.” Those lyrics about romance and spring flowers also fit the bill last week for congressional politics and the 2014 midterm elections. Last Tuesday, the White House hit the 7 million-plus mark for enrolling people in the insurance exchanges set up through the Affordable Care Act (ACA). It was an incredible achievement after the administration wasted two months, a third of the enrollment period, stumbling over a broken website. Public opinion polls last week showed an immediate jump in support for the ACA. President Obama’s approval ratings, which had been at their

Ever the happy warrior of the left, Sen. Chuck Schumer is not giving up on his pipe dream: amnesty for illegal aliens in 2014. Appearing on MSNBC on Monday, Schumer said he thinks it still can happen this year thanks to a group of liberal Republicans—what he thinks is the majority of Republicans—who will stand by silently, letting amnesty pass while voting against it in the end. He called it the “vote-no, pray-yes caucus,” meaning that certain Republicans would publicly claim they are against amnesty, vote against it in the end, but behind the scenes either fight for its passage

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide.

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families.

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t
