Video: Duncan Hunter slams Congress for gutting the border fence
Hot Air ^ | 12/19/07 | Duncan Hunter/Glenn Beck

Posted on 12/19/2007 7:19:36 PM PST by pissant

This is one of those stories that we at Hot Air fully expected to have to write. Where Washington and border security are concerned, the course of events is always predictable: Congresscritters say what they think they have to say to calm us yahoos down, and then they strike some midnight deal to render everything that they said a lie. We may have to unleash YouTube on these weasels again.

In this clip, Rep. Duncan Hunter lays into the miscreants in Congress who have once again proven that our political class is corrupt and uninterested in what the majority of the country wants done. I left in the tail end of Beck’s opening rant prior to Hunter’s interview to give you a couple of nuggets to prove my point on that. It’s another day in Washington, basically.

Glenn Beck also makes an excellent point about border patrol officers, which could easily be applied now to military members and the CIA agents who had to deal with high-value al Qaeda targets: Why do those jobs when you know with 100% certainty that the denizens of the Beltway will sell you out every chance they get?

This race for the nomination is getting more interesting by the day.

Ya know, the more Duncan hangs around in this race...

I’ve got to think that by the time Super Tuesday rolls around a lot of the current frontrunners will have “jumped the shark” and that can only help Hunter.

Time to put on the pressure on congress for reniging on their “promise” to build some fencing on the border.

I think they actually do not want to have immigration laws and borders.....

Join in the Chorus “We Are the World, we are the chil dren......”

congress sucks.

At every open questioning forum, someone needs to ask every senator and/or congressman, “Where’s the fence?”

Tidbit. Not just ‘where is the fence’; but pin them down as to whether they want a physcical fence or a virtual fence (which is also referred to as security fence).

Boeing has the contract for the virtual/security fence.

Duncan Hunter’s fence is physical.

Thomas Jefferson:
“God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.
The people cannot be all, and always, well informed.
The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive.
If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ...
And what country can preserve its liberties, if it’s rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance?
Let them take arms.
The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them.
What signify a few lives lost in a century or two?
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
It is its natural manure.”

John Adams:
“Remember, democracy never lasts long.
It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself.
There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

Anonymous framer of the US Constitution:
“Under every government the dernier [Fr. last, or final]
resort of the people, is an appeal to the sword; whether to defend themselves against the open attacks of a foreign enemy, or to check the insidious encroachments of domestic foes.”

Samuel Adams:
“The said constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”

Sen. Hubert Humphrey:
Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.
This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used, and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced.
But the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, and one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.”

I like Hunter. There is no close second to him in this race. The MSM blacklist seems to be hurting him severely.

The video self destructed halfway thru. Don't know if it's my link or not.

Anyhow, Duncan is the guy by a long shot and Thompson a distant second. Everyone else is liars, bumblers and nuts. And that's just the Republicans.

There are so many sellouts in our nation, it’s amazing it still exists, and pinning this solely on Congress is disturbing. The final version of this bill will be signed and our border will remain open, just the way it was meant to.

“Now is the time when those who take the threat to our nation’s borders seriously stand up and be counted,” said Hunter.

>>We must punish the morons that brought this about.<<

According to Hunter, that includes Pelosi, The 2 Texas senators, Bush, and Chertoff.

I would add almost all Dem House members who voted FOR the amendment.

I’ve been hoping that Duncan Hunter and Tancredo could stay in the race as strong border advocates.

Hunter just doesn’t seem to have the organization to get him to the top.

I applaud both of these guys!

The border is just one area that Hunter is far, far superior.

His stance on China. he is the only man with the balls to go after these communist dirtbags.

His stance on the need for industrialization.

His complete rejection of the global warming alarmism

His stance on our sovereignty

His expertise regarding foreign policy and our military needs

His utter contempt for liberals. Built over his entire career, not just since he decided to run for president.

His perfect record on the 2nd amendment

His career long push to DEPORT the illegals already here.

His perfect record on tax cuts.

I would support Hunter in a heart beat for President. His lack of growth in the polls is probably due, imo, that he never really considered himself as as a real possibility and did not invest in the means to achieve the office.

If he had the organization of Romney, he would probably be our next president.

Organization is one of the many reasons why I support Romney.

Bull....read my post a few times and then get back to me. My god, you have to poll above a few percent to have any chance.

I’ve been very supportive of Hunter. Those that oppose Romney don’t seem to have the same standards.

It shows what a strong nation our Founding Fathers created. Considering all the attempts by the political class to destroy it, America is still here. But eventually they will destroy our nation, and open borders is one of the lethal weapons.

If we want to save our country from compassionate conservatives and RATS we need a man like Duncan Hunter.

Duncan Hunter for President.
