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.

Four teachings from Jesus

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

Moving the Mexican Border

The whole point of setting the border between Mexico and the United States at the deepest channel of the Rio Grande was that the river was not supposed to move. That was the thinking in 1848, when, following Mexico’s defeat by the United States and surrender of its vast northern lands, boundary surveyors from the two countries were tasked with reinventing the border. The choice of the river for the boundary’s eastern half had been obvious: its use as a territorial marker stretched back into the region’s Spanish colonial past, and it was hard to miss and often difficult to

The quote of the week comes from James Clapper, the director of national intelligence. Noting that criticism of surveillance programs forced the government to “throttle back,” he told The Washington Post that means “we are accepting more risk.” Tapping a deep well of sarcasm, he continued: “We are supposed to keep the country safe, predict anticipatory intelligence, with no risk, and no embarrassment if revealed, and without a scintilla of jeopardy to privacy of any domestic person or foreign person. We call that ‘immaculate collection.’?” Bingo! Clapper’s mission-impossible statement is more than justified, and not just in matters of intelligence gathering. He might

In Senate Battle, the Wild Cards

The last few weeks of public polling have offered contradictory and surprising results, like surveys showing the Democratic Senate candidate in Colorado either up by six percentage points or down by eight. Nonetheless, the polls have clarified the fight for the Senate. States like North Carolina and Michigan have moved toward the Democrats, while Arkansas and Louisiana have drifted toward the Republican column. The result is that the list of battleground states has shrunk, with perhaps only Alaska, Iowa and Kansas remaining as true tossups. Yet even though the overall picture is sharper, it now centers on the two most mysterious

Turkey is celebrating the return of 49 of their citizens held for 101 days by Islamic State. The hostages were captured when the Iraqi city of Mosul fell to the terrorists. Turkey’s state run news agency Anadolu reported that “no ransom had been paid and “no conditions were accepted in return for their release.” But many observers weren’t buying that explanation. The official explanation “sounds a bit too good to be true,” said Sinan Ulgen, a former Turkish diplomat who chairs the Istanbul-based Centre for Economics and Foreign Policy Studies. “There are some very legitimate and unanswered questions about how this happened.” The hostages

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rove notes that even though Obama´s "job approval numbers are lousy, no Democrat in a competitive Senate race polls regularly above 50%, GOP enthusiasm is high, and independents are trending Republican... each passing day provides evidence as to why a GOP Senate majority is

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds. Royce, who met this week with the foreign minister of Kurdistan, cited recent reports of young female Kurdish troops “laughing” at ISIS forces they had turned back. “These ISIL soldiers apparently believed that if

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail. “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C. Friday, according to a source in attendance. Maverick PAC has described itself

Sarah Palin has come out in defense of her daughter Bristol who allegedly punched a man in the face during a family brawl. The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago. The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose.

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face." Stanley continued: "Téa Leoni, who has a husky voice and a loose, engaging manner, is an unusually likable beauty. As Elizabeth McCord, she has all the brains and determination of the original and none

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and
