The president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association has sent a blistering letter to Barack Obama castigating him for a remark he made that the organization says equates its members with “terrorists.”

How much longer must we stand by and allow this man and woman who hate America continue to degrade our country every chance they get. Good for this man for taking a stand.

There’s a small probability that the leftists might dump him as unelectable in August.

Otherwise we have to wait until November.

Gordon concludes by inviting Obama to meet with FLEOA officers, saying he would come away with an understanding “that those carrying the ICE shield are heroes, and not terrorists.”

He'll be too busy playing basketball.

Unfortunately, there’s a market for it. Not a day goes by that somewhere, radio, computer, email, truck stop, etc that I haven’t heard the idea the U.S. was a ‘terrorist nation’ due to the past treatment of African Slaves and Native Americans, etc.....

I truly thought forgiveness was divine. Maybe I should just wear earplugs.

The more interesting question is how long will the MSM stand by before they realize that because he’s a disaster, he’s gonna lose forcing them to throw him under the bus in favor of HRC getting the nomination.

He does have a point...consider the ATF and the various alphabet boys who seem to have more toys than work and need ever increasing budgets year to year. The only way to solve the problem is create work.

Obama sides with REAL terrorists and calls anyone who stands up for America and/or Israel “terrorists”.

This man is quite obviously a Manchurian Candidate.

The Obama quote:

"communities are terrorized by ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] immigration raids" and "nursing mothers are torn from their babies."

That’s another sore spot. Obama does not seem to understand that the terrorists WERE in Afghanistan, then went to Pakistan after we moved into Afghanistan. Since we could not invade Pakistan, the only way to get at them was to draw them out, which we did when we invaded Iraq. So the terrorists went to Iraq, but now that they are defeated there, they are headed back to Afghanistan, where we will finish them off.

"When communities are terrorized by ICE immigration raids – when nursing mothers are torn from their babies, when children come home from school to find their parents missing, when people are detained without access to legal counsel...when all that’s happening, the system just isn’t working."

He forgot the part "in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan."

Obama has a mouth like a torn pocketbook.. and if that isn't be bad enough in itself ... he obviously graduated from the Barbara Streisand school of political science.

We have all had more than enough of this horse's a%$ who insists on passing himself off as a world class ‘politician’ and ‘statesman’. He is NOT ... he is just the latest fabrication of ‘media’ gone wild and which has created yet another ‘candidate’ out of their own half as&^% understanding of history, politics and everything else!!! I have really had it with all of these jerks. Conservatives really need to take their heads out of their a%$es and unload on all of these clowns!!!

Thank you for that response to 556X45?. No federal officer should be compared to a terrorists. We have bad apples in all of the police forces and federal agencies but we should not blanket the whole as terrorist.

Obama has gone from a person I aggressively disagree with, to a politician that disgusts me, to nothing more than a big chunk of puke.

This traitor can NOT become our president. He is a disgrace to all Americans.

I read the context of the article. The letter was written in response to Obama’s speech to La Raza, where the annointed one portrayed ICE as “terrorizing” the poor defenseless illegal immigrants.

It’s not so much that St. Obama and Ms. St. Obama hate America. It’s more that they will say anything, I mean ANYTHING to an audience to get votes. If they hated America, at least then you could say they stood for something other than themselves. Instead, I think they are just whores who prostitute themselves. I actually find that more contemptible.

The remarks will be shown to be racist, and made because Obama doesn't look like any former President, including those who've been honored with likenesses on our money. The complaint has nothing to do with Obama's opinion of Federal law enforsement (whom he has the deepest disrespect for).

I find it especially offensive when some elitist nincompoop is so shortsighted that he says incredibly foolish things. This man has no clue what dangers this country faces. I am a member of ICE assigned as a Deportation Officer. Does this make me a terrorist or a target of all the liberals?

I guess I could agree with that to a point but I have to look at it from my life experiences. In my life I can only bad mouth something if I dislike/hate it. So I have to look at their ongoing comments about America from my POV.

To me it is like calling one murder a hate crime and not another. I would really have to hate someone to kill them.

Maybe a group of 7 year old girls can write him a letter to tell him that America really isn’t all that bad too. After all, he sounds extremely pessimistic about things despite his hope in change. Where is that “Yes We Can” attitude, Barry? Michelle is proud for the first time in her adult life, things must be good, eh?

Might want to look a little closer at Ruby Ridge. The siege was started by the Federal Marshall Service and continued by the FBI. Other than the original weapons charges against Weaver, ATF had very little to do with it.

I will agree with you in a way: After Ruby Ridge, One U.S. Marshall AND One FBI agent should have INDIVIDUALLY been charged with murder. But I will not indict all the officers of either agency.

I do not know enough about Waco to make a judgement either way.

The chance of him being dumped is growing. The Certificate of Live Birth distributed and posted on his website (and Daily Kos) has just been proven to be an altered copy of his sister Maya Soetoro. Several posts on this, including tracks to extremely detailed tech analysis, at:

The Clinton’s are making noises about “constitutionally qualified” candidates being OK while still (supposedly) supporting Obama. At the very least, this’ll shake a lot of the undecided’s out of their trees. There’s a big push to put her name on the first ballot at their convention.

Look for some increasing fireworks about this in the next few weeks.

ICE has set up a voluntary go home free program in San Diego to ease the exit of illegal workers, especially those with existing orders. So far no volunteers. So when a law breaker doesn’t go peacefully..they get out the cuffs.
If you or I used someone else’s SS number and idenity, the police come with guns and drag us out of our house in front of our children. Illegals are no different.

I don’t see anything wrong with those acts. These people are illegals. The babies will be cared for, the parents will be imprisoned or deported, then their children can join them. That’s what happens when you break the law.

Remember how Hillary treated the military aides and secret service people in the WH.

There seems to be something in the genes of Liberals that leads them to castigate those fine men and women in the service and various branches of government who try to protect us.

I simply don’t understand this visceral hatred. It is a left-over knee jerk reaction from the 60s. Let it go.
