With the attempted Amnesty debacle still fresh in my mind from a few weeks ago, the continuing collective insanity of the Political Elite and the NeoLeft in regards to open borders during a time of war infuritates and befuddles me.
I encounter many Conservatives who oppose the war on Jihadists because they think it is nothing but a ruse because our Southern border is deliberately left wide open and the existing immigration laws on the book routinely ignored.
I cannot blame them for that outlook and I might have the same mindset save that I am immersed in the study of radical Islam and the things the Jihadist leaders are saying and promising.
But this South Of The Border Insurgency is as great a threat to the existence and survival of America as Jihadists with nukes are, except the destruction is not as swift and sudden – but the consequences are just as dire.
Ancient Rome did not collapse in 410 AD simply due to overextention, debt and debauchery. One of the prime ingredients of Rome’s demise is that Rome itself ceased to be Roman. Migrants and conquered peoples were granted automatic Roman citizenship to bolster tax revenues and expand the Breads and Circuses programs of the Roman Welfare system. Unfortunately, their new citizens had no desire to become Roman, but simply enclaved within them, never assimilating into what Rome used to be. Factionalized tribal enclaves were the result while loyalty to Rome itself was non-existent outside of welfare. Rome had to employ mercenaries among the hated Goths to secure their northern borders and trade routes as their Eastern borders collapsed. Ultimately the mercenaries refused to guard the routes and borders, leaving the enclaves to fend for themselves, until the Goths joined in when the Danube froze and the Visigoths invaded, sacked and burned Rome to the ground.
Ultimately Rome was divided and it ended up in civil war, collapse and more division until the Western Empire ended in 476 and the East, morphing into a Holy Roman Monarchy fell to the Islamic Ottoman Empire.
History does repeat itself, only I do not think America will slow bleed and wither like Rome did. It may burn out a brightly and as quickly as it rose to Superpower status in just a few short years.
Like Ancient Rome, we too have enclaving foreigners among ourselves with no desire to become Americans, but only to take part in our Breads and Circuses.
Even without a threat of terrorism, America is at risk by an invasion of Illegals with no regard for American law, sovereignty, culture or tradition. In an age of Jihad this multiplies the danger a thousandfold.
Terrorists caught along Mexico border
President Bush’s top intelligence aide has confirmed that Iraqi terrorists have been captured coming into the United States from Mexico.
The confirmation comes from National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell, who talked about the situation in an interview with the El Paso Times recently.
“Coming up through the Mexican border is a path,” McConnell said. “Now, are they doing it in great numbers? No, because we’re finding them and we’re identifying them and we’ve got watch lists and we’re keeping them at bay.”
But, he said, “There are numerous situations where people are alive today because we caught them (terrorists).” (More at link)
Open borders are more collective insanity, yet the Left and the Political Elite want the borders open and rights extended to Illegal Insurgents. Our leaders are more concerned with the rights of Illegals and Jihadists than the Rights of Americans. Case-in-point, that brutal slaughter in New Jersey August 8 of three college students, one of whom, when rape failed – had her face cut off with a machete by illegal aliens who were already convicted of violent crimes including child rape.
But still – even after that horrifying event that again is drawing closer to what Jihadists like to do to infidels, when America does enforce existing law on those who have boldly defied it – is met with screams and accusations.
Mexican Senate sides with mom deported from USA
MEXICO CITY (AP) — A Mexican Senate committee passed a measure Wednesday urging President Felipe Calderon to send a diplomatic note to the United States protesting the deportation of an illegal migrant who took refuge in a Chicago church for a year.
The committee also approved a scholarship to help her 8-year-old U.S.-born son, Saul, who is an American citizen and stayed in the United States.
Elvira Arellano, 32, became an activist and a national symbol for illegal immigrant parents by defying her deportation order and speaking out from her sanctuary in the Adalberto United Methodist Church. She announced last week that she was leaving to try to lobby U.S. lawmakers for immigration reform.
On Sunday, shortly after she spoke at a rally in a Los Angeles church, she was arrested and deported to Tijuana, across the border from San Diego.
“We cannot remain quiet in view of this injustice and must ask for firm action from our authorities,” Mexican Sen. Humberto Zazue said. (More at link)
Oftentimes I hear local Law enforcement say they have no manpower, or grounds, or protocols to arrest, detain or deport Illegals. I hear that the Feds have case loads that are 18 months deep and cannot track down overstayed visa holders.
In an age of Jihad isn’t it amazing that they cannot enforce our Immigration laws, but they can enforce No Smoking laws, No Seatbelt Laws, andNo Baggy pants laws?
Illegals are sucking up our jobs, welfare and killing our fellow countrymen -
Yet we are told no fence.
We are told we are slave masters and racists for demanding our laws be upheld.
We are told crimes are crimes and it’s irrelevant if they are commited by an Illegal alien.
We are told that even though it is illegal to unlawfully enter the country – it is not illegal to REMAIN in the country!So say the courts!
The fact ladies and gentlemen is this:
Because we have discarded our Foundational Principles and God from this society – we have also discarded wisdom.
Now we are naught but fools and our slaughter commeth.
