Gov. Perry Asks Obama To Do One Thing
About the Border Crisis, Which Would Help,
But Which Obama Is Certain Not To Do

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

After meeting with President Obama on the border crisis in Dallas today, Texas Gov. Rick Perry issued the following statement. In it, he lists several measures that the president should take to secure the border. Here is the governor’s full statement. DALLAS – Gov. Rick Perry today met with President Barack Obama to discuss the ongoing humanitarian and national security crises occurring along the Texas-Mexico border. In the meeting, Gov. Perry urged the president to undertake the necessary steps to secure the border and ease the crises. “Five hundred miles south of here in the Rio Grande Valley there is a humanitarian

Instead of acknowledging that his own policies have played any role in the crisis, he instead blamed Republicans and demanded that they do exactly what he says, or he will take no action on his own to fix the problem. Some people might see that as extortion.

Everyone sees it as extortion. Only Democrats refuse to call it that, but everyone knows what it is, following a well-established pattern of juvenility.

Everyone also knows that our POTUS is a ideological pugilist whose first recourse is revenge and adolescent temper tantrums. How did such a spiritually acned teenager come to run this great country? All he does is hang out with his photo-op buds and slam doors.

God does have His reasons, but I´m not that sure I want to live long enough to learn what they are, considering that ordinary Americans are helpless right now.

Things can change, though, when men and women of honor and courage decide "enough".

FTA "talk of “comprehensive immigration reform” always causes a spike in illegal crossings; because of how the 2008 William Wilberforce Act is being implemented; and because of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals....DACA is his policy, created via executive order. He could rescind it any time he wants. He won’t."

The southern border is what the Cloward Piven Strategy looks like in practice. I live in Texas and we are being invaded by illegal aliens with all kinds of communicable diseases and they are being sent all over the country. How I despise obama, the Democrats and the msm for this purposeful destruction of the country.

Poor Rick Perry...he´s the governor of a major state, a likely presidential candidate, and his response to the "crisis" on his border is a whiny press release and a hand out for Federal money to pay law enforcement overtime. He was suckered at the meeting he demanded with Obama, getting nothing but a horselaugh. And Obama is incompetent? Let Perry be Perry...he ain´t no Reagan.

This entire past week has been a lead up of reports that perry invited obama to tour the border with the governor or there would be no meeting. Now there was a meeting with the beggar governor and king obama.

#5, you are mistaken. Governor Perry invited Obama to tour the border. Also, Perry refused to meet Obama´s plane in Austin for a tarmac handshake. Perry said he wanted a meeting, not just a handshake. An agreement was reached for Perry to greet the president elsewhere and to be granted a meeting.

#4 goes from Perry thread to Perry thread saying the same things. We get it, #4. You don´t like anything about Rick Perry. Your privilege, of course.

#6 is correct and I too must disagree with sour perceptions of Perry. This meeting (as opposed to a tarmac photo op) had to take place to reveal harder evidence of Obama´s truculence in this entire issue. Even LoFos and NoFos are becoming perturbed about the southern border being washed away by an admitted tsunami of illegals (with highly contagious and serious diseases); the more the situation is brought to their attention, the more they will turn away from Obama. But they can´t do that unless someone like Perry forces it into the news, time after time.

In this particular news piece, we discover that Obama "blamed Republicans [for the border problem] and demanded that they do exactly what he says, or he will take no action on his own to fix the problem."

Even NoFos can see that threat for what it is: Obama won´t do anything about the problem unless he gets the $3.7 billion he demands for extra judges, etc. Why are judges needed? Does it really take a law degree to figure out whether a person is in the country illegally and must be deported? (Like the gang members who freely admit to torture and killings.)

I salute Perry for keeping his cool and eliciting Obama´s threat--which basically says "Do what I tell you or I´m taking my ball and going home. So there" (emphasized by a foot stamp).

obamais doing this so he can blame the Republicans for not giving him money to control the border...he doesn´t need the money..all obama has to do is tell the border patrol to close the border. he could also bus the people back to the country they came from. i.e. President Dwight Eisenhower..1954 Operation Wetback..sorry folks that´s what it was called. thousands of illgals came over the border..Ike then had them bused back to Mexico. It can be done, and the president has the authority to do so. obama wont, and he is the one at fault. NOT the Republicans its all about politics.
another side note. these illegals are not coming over the border for jobs..they are here to live off the taxpayer. They don´t wrk in their own country..they sure are not going to work here.. and obama has made it very nice for people that don´t work.to live off the taxpayers

Frankly, it is time that the governors of these states DEMAND that these facilities be open for inspection. Gov. Perry should put the Texas National Guard on the border. Let Obama arrest him. The only way to stop Obama is to flaunt his edicts. Until Americans decide that enough is enough this lawless behavior will continue. Unfortunately, we can´t look to the Republicans in Washington DC to support defying the President. It is going to take a few regular Americans to stand up and say, no more.

Where are the patriots working in these centers? Some of these workers need to be whistleblowers. A few pictures of the actual mess that is unfolding would open a few eyes. Surely, they don´t agree with what is going on. Some of them need to break the blackout imposed by this imperial president. The American people deserve to know exactly what their boy king is bringing into their neighborhoods.

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing. - Edmund Burke

Re. the above comments about Gov Perry. I am definitely not anti-Perry, but My opinion is that Perry was rolled by zero. The meeting was totally on zero´s terms. What difference does it make whether the handshake was at Austin or Dallas. The optics were the same. Perry waiting dutifully at the bottom of the ramp while the king struts down and slaps him on tha back.

Videos of the group meeting at Love field showed Perry sitting sullenly at the far corner of the table while zero was yukking it up with the Dallas mayor.

Just my observations.

The message that was sent to the low info voters was that Perry was refusing to shake President Obama´s hand. In fact, one comment I overheard was, Is he afraid the black will rub off? I´m married to a Dem low info voter and am regularly astounded by how stupid the elites think they are. Evidently the programming is strong.

What would you have had Perry do, #16? I guess he could have taken an icepick to Air Force 1´s tires or spit on Obama´s shoes.

Rick Perry is the governor of Texas behaving civilly and as courteously as the office of the presidency deserves under awkward circumstances. I believe Perry got the most facetime possible against Obama´s sullen refusal to substantially divert from his frantic fund-raising activities in Austin and Dallas. The "roundtable" meeting wasn´t part of Obama´s original schedule.

Perry, understand one thing, the First amateur clown looks you in the eye, turns around and does the opposite of what he just told you. Read Ron Kessler´s book about First Families. But this one takes the cake. I believe he is also full of drugs and has the attention span of an amoebae. The former community organizer is a very stupid man you would not hire to polish your shoes, he would be too dumb to find the shoes. We are lurching from one crisis to another. Some, like the border crisis, created to tear our attention away from the last scandal. I say have this barf bag resign. Well, we know there is no Santa!

Does anyone remember when Gov Brewer met Obama on the tarmac a year or so ago and all you saw was she in his face pointing her finger? All the MSM could talk about was how she was so disrespectful to Obama, etc. NO matter how valid her argumanets, she lost to the optics of some governor disrespecting Prez. Obama.

Let´s face it - Obama, for all his spritually acned teenager temper tantrums, has the ultimate in optics with Air Force 1, the Seal of the POTUS, the young Marines in dress blues, etc. to overwhelm anyone to his advantage.

Bottom line - our country is being overrun and we´re arguing optics.

Under longstanding US immigration law every illegal alien in the USA, even those caught right after they jump over the border fence has the right to a deportation hearing. When the border patrol catches a non criminal illegal alien they must explain that right to the apprehended alien, along with advising the alien that he or she can waive the right to a deportation hearing and voluntarily return to their home country. That is basic.

Obama and the liberal Democrats are claiming that the William Wilberforce anti trafficking law, a liberal Democrat designed amendment to the immigration law that was meant to detour forced sex trafficking that was passed back during the G.W. Bush era now covers all the tens of thousands of young illegal aliens coming in across the borderline and that law requires that every one of them be accorded a formal deportation hearing, and that each of them must have a government appointed immigration lawyer at the hearing. If that is the case, and that continues, none of those young illegal aliens will ever be deported, since the initial hearing, because of the numbers involved, will not be held for years, and to go through the complicated immigration court process along with later appeals processes have been liberalized beyond belief could take a decade, and ultimately always favor the illegal alien, who has been paying his or her immigration lawyer all that time, staying in the USA in the end.

The immigration laws and the highly esoteric immigration court system set up to favor immigration lawyers and illegal aliens needs to be scrapped, and a new very simple process put in place to the affect that once it is established that the alien respondent is an illegal alien that he or she is quickly deported.

Doesn´t this qualify as a foreign invasion? It certainly does to me. Just who invited these people to come to this country? The only one that did is Obozo. As such, he has to be held as responsible for any and all of their actions and diseases they spread around and anything else they do. And there is no way that under current law that they can become citizens or be eligible to vote for anyone. To allow any of that to happen has to be a violation of current law. Why can´t the lo-fo´s and the rest of the country see that? We here at LCom do.

Harsh critics of Perry must understand that in this particular situation nobody, not Perry, nobody, can effectively jump right in and do something heroic right now, this minute about what´s happening at the border in his state and in border states governed by others.

What he has to do is inform and educate the country, as he did in his remarks today, about the fact that Obama could do something practical but won´t. Yes, WE knew that beyond a shadow of a doubt--but not everybody in the country did.

Now Perry can take some action and will be roundly criticized by the opposition. So? So he will now have the ability to say, "Look, I tried to convince Obama that we are in dire straits here in Texas and across the country but all he says is ´gimme the money I want or I´ll just turn my back and ignore you.´ " And right there he will have the grounds to do something himself.

You all know that those involved in law enforcement in Texas will send one or two or six or more officers to control the border. Other border states should follow suit. If they don´t, let THEM provide the $3.7 billion that the rest of us who help support this country paid into the treasury--the majority of whom have numerous generations of antecedents who also paid their way with money and lives.

Who else is out there, face to face with Obama, trying to solve or at least ameliorate the problem? Perry and Texas need support, not criticism.

When TV Determines Guilt or Innocence

I don’t know why we are spending our hard-earned money paying taxes to support a criminal-justice system, when issues of guilt and innocence are being determined on television — and even punishment is being meted out by CNN’s showing the home and address of the policeman accused in the Ferguson, Mo., shooting. One of the big differences between Democrats and Republicans is that we at least know what the Democrats stand for, whether we agree with it or not. But, for Republicans, we have to guess.

Barack Obama has spent most of his presidency trying to narrow Bush’s war on terror. But with the new campaign in Iraq, the big war is back. There was a time not so long ago when the White House said al Qaeda was on its heels, the tide of war was receding, and the U.S. was turning its attention to Asia. It was a happier time in terms of foreign policy. America would lead from behind and not do stupid s**t, even if that meant staying on the sidelines as Syria and, later, Iraq imploded. Then along came the Islamic State of

In the beginning of the war, Southern women wanted their men to leave — in droves, and as quickly as possible. They were the Confederate Army’s most persuasive and effective recruitment officers, shaming anyone who shirked his duty to fight. A young English immigrant in Arkansas enlisted after being accosted at a recruitment meeting. “If every man did not hasten to battle, they vowed they would themselves rush out and meet the Yankee vandals,” he wrote of Southern women. “In a land where women are worshipped by men, such language made them war-mad.” Newspapers printed gender-bending cartoons that drove the point

FERGUSON, Mo. — On one corner of a battered stretch of West Florissant Avenue, the epicenter of ongoing protests, young men pull dark scarves up over their mouths and lob molotov cocktails at police from behind makeshift barricades built of bricks and wood planks. They call the gasoline-filled bottles “poor man’s bombs.” The young men yell expletives and, with a rebel’s bravado, speak about securing justice for Michael Brown, the black teen fatally shot Aug. 9 by a white police officer, “by any means necessary.” They are known here as “the militants” — a faction inhabiting the hard-core end of

She and her fellow Democrats pretend they’re the party of the poor, the “hammered” middle class — the 99 percent.

Obama’s teetering presidency

Barack Obama’s presidency isn’t just shrinking, it’s losing support among its most critical point — its base. Less than two years ago, Barack Obama became the first Democratic president since FDR to win re-election with a popular-vote majority. Since then, his support has dropped dramatically — not just overall, but among important constituent groups. Comparing 2012 exit poll results with an Aug. 8 McClatchy-Marist nationwide poll shows how far Mr. Obama has fallen with various segments of the population. In 2012, Mr. Obama won among women 55 percent to 44 percent. Today, his approval rating among women is 41 percent, with

Two states. Two ethics panels. Two governors facing heat from prosecutors. Yet of the two, it is the one who wasn’t indicted who might have committed the more troubling offense. In Texas, Gov. Rick Perry was charged Friday with abuse of power — essentially, exercising his constitutional right to veto legislation. Perry had nixed funding for a county public-integrity unit after the local DA who heads it was busted for driving drunk (her blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the limit). The DA also abused the arresting officer. Perry refused to fund the unit unless the DA quit. Anyone who broke the law and

Over the weekend, liberal and conservative commentators achieved rare bipartisan consensus in condemning the indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry as “unbelievably ridiculous,” legally thin, and potentially unconstitutional. Perry is accused of threatening to veto and then actually vetoing funding for the Travis County district attorney’s office, unless it got rid of its district attorney, who—in an embarrassing incident—pleaded guilty to drunk driving and arguably got off too easily. (Snip)But we need to look very skeptically on indictments where the main allegation is that the politician engaged in perfectly legal hardball politics.

Max Baucus faced an uphill battle in any bid for reelection, he was removed from the electoral equation when President Barack Obama appointed him America’s next ambassador to China. The state’s Democratic governor appointed John Walsh, a figure many believed would be a more electable candidate, to serve as Baucus’s replacement. (snip) State Rep. Amanda Curtis was selected to represent the president’s party in Montana at the top of the ticket in

When I heard that Texas Governor Rick Perry had been indicted, I thought, “This had better be good, or it will backfire on the Democrats.” It turns out it isn’t good and it may well backfire on the Democrats. A Travis County grand jury has indicted the Texas governor and former and possible future candidate for the Republican presidential nomination for allegedly abusing his power, by threatening to cut off funding for the public integrity unit in the office of a Democratic County District Attorney, Rosemary Lehmberg, following her drunk driving arrest. The two charges against Perry are serious enough in their

AN INDICTMENT is a bit of a buzz-kill. On Friday, Rick Perry joined Chris Christie and Bob McDonnell in the brotherhood of highly ranked Republicans who can personally testify to this, among other things. In Mr Perry’s case, the charges are coercion and abuse of official capacity. Those are serious criminal matters; if convicted of the latter, a felony, he could face up to 99 years in prison. At first the indictments seemed like a real blow. Mr Perry is planning to step down as governor of Texas next year, after 14 years on the job. He is widely thought to

An autopsy conducted on Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old fatally shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson last Saturday, shows that Brown was shot at least six times, twice in the head and all in the front of the body. The New York Times reported the results of a private autopsy conducted by Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by the Brown family. Baden conducted the autopsy on Sunday, according to the Times. One bullet entered the top of Brown’s skull. Four struck him in the right arm. All bullets hit Brown in the front of the body, according to

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease. [Snip] Observers might ask, “How can this be happening in an America that has elected a black president?” How can black kids still get killed by white cops and how

According to a preliminary report from a St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter, police say that more than a dozen witnesses back Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s version of the events that led to the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

CNN confirmed with police officials that Josie’s and Wilson’s versions match.

President Barack Obama is getting off the island. In a rare move for him, the president planned a break in the middle of his Martha´s Vineyard vacation to return to Washington on Sunday night for meetings with Vice President Joe Biden and other advisers on the U.S. military campaign in Iraq and tensions between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. The White House has been cagey about why the president needs to be back in Washington for those discussions. He´s received multiple briefings on both issues while on vacation. The White House had also already announced Obama´s plans to return

Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. Department of Justice spokesman Brian Fallon said it will be performed at the request of Brown´s family in addition to the one conducted by the state. Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder. Last week, Holder announced the federal probe following protests and outrage over the murder of the unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Since the murder, the town has erupted into multiple police clashes. Despite a

While Barack Obama may have his own personal feelings towards the death of Michael Brown and the deterioration of order in Ferguson, Mo., he took pains during his press conference today to stress that he is, first and foremost, the President of the United States, and that the investigation in Brown’s death is still in progress. “I have to be very careful about not prejudging events before these investigations are completed, because these are issues of local jurisdiction,” he said during a Q&A during a press conference, in which he announced that he was sending Attorney General Eric Holder to

Historians will have the rest of the century to unravel the mess that is the Barack Obama presidency. While they can explore these years of foreign policy disaster and domestic malaise at leisure, the rest of us have 29 more months to see just how awful things can get before he slides off to a lucrative retirement. But those who want to start the post-mortem on this historic presidency would do well to read Jackson Diehl’s most recent Washington Post column in which he identifies Obama’s hubris as the key element in his undoing.

McDonald’s has a problem. For the first time in 10 years, the company generated less revenue in a month than it did a year before, and it’s not a blip. The world’s biggest burger chain has been posting lagging results for some time, particularly in the United States. Blake Casper says he has a very good idea why. “Companies like Chipotle are doing a great job talking to people about healthy food, and they’re changing the dynamic of how people eat,” said Casper, who owns Tampa Bay’s largest McDonald’s franchise group with his sister Allison Casper Adams. “We embrace that

Montpelier, VT - Former Vermont U.S. Sen. James Jeffords, who in 2001 tipped control of the Senate when he quit the Republican Party to become an independent, died Monday. He was 80. Jeffords died in Washington, said Diane Derby, a former aide to Jeffords. He had been in declining health, she said. Jeffords had announced in 2005 that he would not seek a fourth term, citing his and his wife´s health problems. "I have had an enormously satisfying career, one that I would not have traded for any other," Jeffords said when he retired. "In no other job do you

Was Michael Brown a "gentle giant," a cigar thief, or a gang member? The black teenager had no adult criminal record, according to the St. Louis County prosecutor. Initial media profiles noted that family and friends described "Big Mike" as not "the type to fight" and "funny, silly, he would make you laugh." (Snip) Michael Brown had struggled in school, but had graduated Aug. 1 from Normandy High School, and had been staying at his grandmother´s apartment in Ferguson this summer.
