Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) reportedly plans to dispatch the Texas National Guard to the U.S. border with Mexico, according to news reports. Perry will announce his plans Monday to mobilize some 1,000 guardsmen to the Rio Grande Valley to increase security at the border, according to the Monitor, a south Texas newspaper. The newspaper quoted a state senator and an internal memo it obtained from a state official’s office. Perry spokesman Felix Browne told The Washington Post he would neither confirm nor deny the report, but said all details will be given at a news conference at 2 p.m. Central time

How long before Obama and Holder invoke federal supremacy and tells the TNG to step aside?

You mean a politician is finally going to do something they should instead of just running their mouth about it.

I hate to say it, but this ma be largely symbolic. Of those thousand troops, most will be support troops. There will be medics, mechanics, cooks, admin, supply, engineers, chaplains, comm guys, etc. Of the direct combat troops, some will be officers and senior enlisted who generally dont get involved with the dirty stuff. Figure the remaining personnel will be divided into 2-3 shifts with occasional days off and it doesn´t leave many people on a very long border.

Years in the making, and years too late. Will they have ammunition in their guns? Will they be allowed to shoot back? Will they be allowed within sight of the border or at some checkpoint 35 miles away? Once they catch illegals, will they send them right back or off to some holder hotel in Taxachusetts?

Exactly, #8; what is the ROE for the Guardsmen/women? When can they engage?

Watch for Nobama/Holder to invoke some sort of jury-rigged injunction against National Guard mobilization. Disgusting.

If the Feds, that is to say Obama/Holder, raise an injunction against protecting the Texas border and, frankly, the citizens of the state then Governor Perry has to have the cajones to ignore their ruling. There needs to be an immediate and massive push back against this invasion by Texas if not all of the border states.

I would like to see fenced, guarded tent cities erected along the borders with very, very basic accommodations. Every morning the invaders are marched to the border in their pink underwear to spend an hour looking at Mexico and freedom. Then they are put to work with basic hand tools on WPA type projects. Dinner is rice, beans with a cold shower and simple cot. There is no electricity. Monotony is the order of the day regarding both your work and your food. If you are identified as an illegal anywhere in the state you are moved to one of these facilities and given the choice to return south anytime you please. Ignore the Feds and make the life of an illegal in the state of Texas a miserable existence.

In the real world, Perry hasn´t any apparent interest in passing a bill revoking the state license of businesses who repeatedly hire these illegals. They attend our public schools, drive without licenses or insurance and flout our laws without concern. And the state capital of Austin is a sanctuary city.

I love Rick Perry for trying, but in answere to a previous post. All Obama has to do is nationalize the Texas Guard, just like Eisenhower did when Orval Faubus, the Governor or Arkansas, mobilized them to prevent integration at public schools in 1960. Eisenhower issued the orders and the troops immediately became protectors of the children trying to integrate the school system. I´m not trying to compare what Perry is doing with what the reprehensible Faubus did, but you can see how easily the situation can be turned 180 degrees around by Emperor Zippy.

“If the federal government does not do its constitutional duty to secure the Southern border of the United States, the state of Texas will do it,” Perry said Sunday at a Republican barbecue in Iowa.

Don´t mess with Texas.

What he said the day he met with Obama, was IF the National Guard was mobilized it would free up the Border Patrol to do their job which is securing the border. He also said the Border Patrol should be moved TO the Border, not 45 miles away. If Obama refuses to do this, it will be a HUGE campaign Ad for the Republicans AND Perry himself. The Border patrol should have GUNS AND BULLETS to prove they mean business. Anyone crossing should be IMMEDIATELY turned around and sent back. They have NO RIGHTS to a hearing! Put them in a truck, drive them to Mexico and force them to cross that Border back to where they came from. If they came from south of Mexico, it´s their problem how they will get back home. Once the word gets out, the flood will subside!

Sorry for one more post, but #21 may not realize that the National Guard is not deployed instantly anywhere or under any circumstances. The National Guard is completely self-contained, traveling with everything the members will need. That´s not put together in just hours.

Thanks Gov Perry. Texas has complete constitutional authority to protect its sovereignty, over and above any federal law. The federals will do nothing, and if they even try, Texas will expel them from the state as well.

Posted By: StormCnter- 10/1/2014 1:45:46 PM     Post Reply
Yesterdays’ big roundup of the outlook for the GOP in the Congressional races spurred a predictable amount of “I’m staying home, the GOP is a bunch of sellouts, I’ll start voting again when the party stands for principle and nominates some true conservatives” responses. You may have seen my reaction here. On to the gubernatorial races… Let’s begin with the states where Democrats said they would be competitive… and they just aren’t. Wendy Davis is not going to derail Greg Abbott in Texas; she’s probably going to have the biggest hype-to-performance ratio of this cycle. Vincent Sheheen finished surprisingly close in 2010

News that a man has been diagnosed with the virus in Dallas days after arriving from Liberia is alarming—and to prevent more U.S. cases, certain rules must never be broken. The announcement that a case of Ebola virus has been diagnosed in a Dallas hospital sent a chill through the medical, public health, and basic citizen communities. I know my jaw surely dropped as far as it has dropped since 2001, when the word of the first anthrax case in New York appeared in my email.

The president and his top foreign policy aides met at the White House on Tuesday "to discuss our comprehensive strategy to counter the threat posed by [ISIS]," the administration said in a statement.

The Obama administration is reportedly considering an executive action that could protect illegal immigrants convicted of serious vehicle-related offenses, including drunk driving, from deportation as they’d normally be subject to under immigration law. The most sweeping piece of executive action President Obama has considered regarding immigration policy would offer effectively legal status and work authorization to some millions of illegal immigrants, but there are other executive actions the administration has considered instead of or in addition to that measure. One of those possibilities, described in a report by the

The Department of Health and Human Services cannot legally bail out the insurance industry for excessive losses through President Obama´s health care law unless the U.S. Congress approves language allowing the administration to do so, according to a legal opinion released on Tuesday by the Government Accountability Office. The ruling could end up provoking a showdown between the White House and Congressional Republicans over Obamacare that has the potential to affect health insurance premiums. At issue is the "risk corridors" program, which aims to stabilize the insurance market on the new health insurance exchanges

The Obama administration must acknowledge the existence of an independent investigation into former White House senior economics adviser Austan Goolsbee’s alleged unauthorized access to the Koch brother’s tax returns, a court ruled Tuesday. A federal judge ruled the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) must disclose to watchdog group Cause of Action whether records of an investigation exist. Cause of Action filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit after TIGTA refused to confirm or deny the existence of the investigation in what is commonly known as a “Glomar response.”

The Democrats’ biggest worry heading toward November is Obama’s fall from grace with his base. This could make things even worse for them than currently expected. Democrats’ only hope to offset Republicans’ anticipated midterm surge is their base’s high turnout. However, Obama’s deep drop with his strongest supporters seriously calls this hope into question. Democrats know they will lose seats in November. The only question is: How many? At best, they hope to hang on to the Senate by a hair. Losses for the party holding the presidency are nothing new. Simply, it happens because the presidential candidate, who brought in sufficient

A federal judge in Oklahoma has ruled that Obamacare subsidies cannot go to residents of states that are not running their own insurance exchanges, a second blow to the Obama administration on a issue that threatens a key element of the health law’s coverage expansion. Judge Ronald A. White said that the administration’s decision to allow subsidies to go through either a state-run health insurance exchange or the federal exchange is an improper and invalid reading of the Affordable Care Act and must be struck. White’s ruling marks the second judgment against the government on the subsidy question and comes as the

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016.
