Gov. Rick Perry to mobilize Texas National
Guard troops to secure U.S.-Mexico border

Washington Post, by Lindsey Bever

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?

How soon? Probably before they ever get boots on the ground. God bless Gov. Perry for trying to protect his state, er, the Republic.

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!

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.

It all comes down to this: 11 years later, the front door was unlocked. When Oscar Gonzalez jumped the White House fence late last month, he should have been just another statistic. A mentally ill man who was doing what a handful of others do every year, get onto the White House lawn and find themselves tackled by guards or brought down by dogs or fired upon by snipers. But this time it was different. The President and first family weren´t home, the snipers didn´t shoot. It´s still not clear where the dogs were or why there was no Uniformed Division officer

HOUSTON, Texas -- A desperate Wendy Davis is now touting a heavily skewed poll that still shows her trailing by nearly ten points. With the margin of error in the poll being plus or minus 3.1 percent, she could be trailing in this discredited poll by as much as twelve points. After coming off two consecutive debate failures where Davis failed to even keep her composure and follow simple instructions from the moderator, Davis is now pushing a Texas Lyceum poll that shows her trailing Attorney General Greg Abbott’s campaign by 9 percentage points. The numbers in this poll are considered

It’s been the most remarkably enduring story line of Election 2014: three Democratic senators defying their states’ deep red complexion and their president’s abysmal approval ratings to stay competitive in races that should have, on paper, been lost long ago. The question all along has been, Could it possibly last? Now, a month out from the election, Republicans are seeing subtle but perceptible signs that contests in Alaska, Arkansas and Louisiana — all three pivotal in the battle for the Senate — are finally breaking their way. In Alaska, the conservative base has rallied behind Republican Dan Sullivan after a

If Mitt Romney had said in 2012 that a second Obama term would bring not just continued economic uncertainty, but also the re-emergence of international terrorist forces, Russia´s invasion of the Ukraine, an illegal immigration crisis, a knife-wielding madman in the White House, a beheading in Oklahoma, and the Ebola virus in Texas, even the president´s most paranoid critics would have told him to calm down.

On the eve of the 25th anniversary of the Watergate break-in, the Washington Post noted an amusing coincidence: “Almost a quarter century ago, Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson served as Republican counsel on the Senate Watergate committee. Now he chairs the Senate panel investigating the current White House fund-raising scandal.” The timing was interesting because, as the Post explained, the “controversy came to light last year because of the reforms of Watergate, including requirements that campaigns and political parties regularly submit lists of their contributors to the Federal Election Commission.” The Post went on to list seven major reforms that stemmed either

World War II veteran Andrew Haines decided years ago that he wanted a Norse-inspired funeral upon his death, and the U.S. Coast Guard obliged. Mr. Haines, who emigrated from Norway in 1927, scaled down blueprints for a 100-foot ship to a few feet in the years before he died. It was then up to the Coast Guard to decide whether it would ignite the boat and send-off Mr. Haines‘ cremated remains in accordance with his wishes. “Oh, I was thrilled,” Mr. Haines’ son Andy told Navy Times on Thursday. “I was thrilled when the Coast Guard called and told me

Following in the footsteps of Robert Gates, his Obama administration predecessor at the Pentagon, former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has criticized the president’s handling of a key battleground in the war against Islamic terrorism. Gates’ criticism centered around Afghanistan. Panetta’s focuses on Iraq. In Panetta’s forthcoming memoir “Worthy Fights,” which Time Magazine has excerpted, Panetta argues that Iraqi leaders privately wanted U.S. forces to stay behind after the formal 2011 withdrawal; that the U.S. had “leverage” to strike a deal; and that the Defense and State departments attempted to do so. However, says Panetta, “the President’s team at the White

Are significant chunks of the mainstream media in despair over Barack Obama? This past week, Obama used 60 Minutes to attempt to shift blame for the failure to anticipate the rise of ISIS, endured a cover-up of White House security disasters by the Secret Service, and saw a government-agency report that he had skipped nearly 60 percent of his intelligence briefings. The reaction from some longtime Obama defenders was swift and harsh. “President Obama this week committed professional suicide,” wrote former CNN host Piers Morgan, now an editor-at-large for Britain’s Daily Mail. He called Obama’s throwing of the intelligence community under the

Obama´s Cowardly Behavior

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is understandably miffed with President Obama´s criticisms of settlements (through WH Press Secretary Josh Earnest) considering he had met with him only hours without bringing up the subject. So why did Obama behave in this manner? I suspect he did this because Netanyahu publicly admonished Obama not enter into nuclear deal with Iran that leaves the Mullahs on the "threshold" of being able to develop nuclear weapons. This is, after all, a matter of Israel´s very survival. But Obama doesn´t take criticism well and wanted to get back at him. So once Bibi was safely

It is no secret that the Obama administration has demonstrated questionable commitment to the rule of law. It has undermined the separation of powers by disregarding congressional enactments while pushing executive power far beyond its constitutional boundaries. It has further undermined limited government by disregarding federalism and pushing Washington-knows-best legislation that far exceeds anything the Founding Fathers could have conceived. In recent years, a politicized Justice Department has refused to defend bipartisan legislation in court and resisted congressional oversight. Its practice of entering into extremely generous “settlements” with environmental and other liberal groups raises questions about whether the administration is welcoming

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper.

Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
