Skip to comments.Texas National Guard on ALert
Posted on 02/22/2009 9:31:47 AM PST by djf
Texas State Senator, Dan Patrick, was on FoxNews this morning at 8:45am. He said he had some breaking news to share. Boy was it!!! The Texas State Legislature had been trying very hard to get the Obama Administration to respond to a critical situation on the Texas Border. The Administration had not gotten back with Texas as of last night. So the State of Texas told Washington D.C. basically they could go jump, and well take care of Texas!. As of last night the Texas National Guard has been put on High Alert!!! This is the first time in history! Texas tried, desperately to get Washingtons approval but when they could not get it they acted on their own. Which I say . its about damn time!!! I personally applaud the guts it took to defy the Feds and act in our best interest! In case you are unaware of what the problems are . Sen. Dan Patrick spelled it out nicely!
1) 100s of PRO-DRUG CARTEL Mexicans were blocking the entrance to the United States, yesterday and today, banging cars, shouting and holding signs. 10 people were killed Wed. and 12 more yesterday at the border (5 of which were children!!!) 2) They arent sure but they think the Drug Cartel is paying the demonstrators to do what theyre doing. 3) This will spill over into the States! Mr. Patrick, and the other State officials,. are convinced that road-side bombs and car bombs will make it across the border and WILL NOT allow that to happen!! 4) Mexico is breaking out in Civil War in the western part of the border and they expect it to spread the entire border with no end in sight. 5) The National Guard will be activated as the scenario worsens and is on Alert now and will remain so until (and IF) Washington does something to end the danger on the border (Yeah like thats gonna happen!).
FoxNews has yet to put this on their website which absolutely ticks me off!!!! I will post it IF they get the stones to do whats right!
Lets pray it doesnt come to this
. but in reality
Texas could be in a Civil War (actually it would be an international incident) with Mexico very soon if this isnt quelled. Just so you folks know
. the four Militia Groups that are here in Texas will be put on alert this evening. This has gotten REAL, REALLY FAST!
Crap is starting to hit the fan down there. I’m getting bad feeling about current events.
"The cartels are, predictably, fighting back to protect their lucrative criminal livelihood. This plan doesnt change or otherwise supersede existing authorities; it plans for how a number of government organizations would respond and coordinate if local resources were to be overwhelmed."
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is "continuing to develop that plan," Kudwa said Thursday. Meanwhile, Tim Irwin, spokesman for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, said he was unaware of any plans in Texas to prepare for an influx of Mexicans seeking refuge. Theoretically, Irwin said, a Mexican citizen could go to a border crossing and seek asylum based on fears of returning home amid the ongoing drug wars.
Some would call for the violent expulsion of foreign interests that operate openly within the U.S.A. Even if the agents of these foreign interests have been elected into legislative, executive, and judicial positions in our government. Of course it would be highly improper for any subject or serf to support such inclinations. The upcoming storm will amaze partisans on both sides. I openly call for the expulsion of the United Nations from both sides of the Texas-Mexico border. In the interest of peace and humanitarian aid.
Coming soon to a US City near you. When all hell breaks lose in Mexico, you can be they are heading North.
Looking at a red/blue map of Texas counties, it's almost unfathomable that Democrats could somehow gerrymander the districts here so badly that they gained complete control of the state.
I guess I have some hard working Repubs to thank for the current political landscape.
I cannot describe the hatred I have for this man. I need to pray.
I know exactly how you feel. There are no words.
Last time you were here folks threw exploding fruit at you.
The last time I was in Texas, Bush was our president.
And Lo, folks threw exploding fruit at you.
Shoes are for rookies.
The real test vis dodging exploding fruit.
I'm just sayin...
We need to party like it's 1776. Make that Tea Party.
What if I don't want to "be" that?
Have we surrendered yet? Where is John Kerry when you need him?
You WILL reclaim your Republic.
No, KBH is softer than Perry on Border control.
Did you know there was a crossing gate about 100 yards north?
What if I don’t want to “be” that?
When all hell breaks lose in Mexico, you can BET they are heading North.
ThanksColor me disappointed. I was hoping we had a fighter.
Tom Delay was very important to getting it done right - which led to the Austin DA, Ronnie Earle, going after him on trumped up charges (which have been 'dropped', since Tom is out of the legislature and ronnie has 'retired'.)
North is “up” on a map right?
If you can dodge fruit you can dodge a wrench. If you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a ball!
Wasn’t that when the Dems all went and holed up in Motel 6 in Oklahoma? It was quite a drama.
I miss DeLay.
I keep hoping for a third candidate to step up to the plate.
I almost voted for Kinky last time (kidding.)
last time I saw him was on a thread about maybe a year or so ago...We talked about Jindal and the election they had down there.
He said he has been busy and off/on FR for a while.
I bet he was able to capitalize and write English.
Winners just seem to have those skills.
i thank you for the kind words, sir
You DO realize you are missing capitalization and punctuation, right?
You don't mind these things? You are perhaps unaware?
You were perhaps never taught proper English in the parochial school in Zimbabwe?
Surely they at least taught you to capitalize the first word.
I think you are just being lazy.
...and even the little kids flip you the bird when you smile at them.
thanks again for your assessment of my zimbabweanesque typing profile : )
See, you did it again.
The first word in any sentence should be capitalized.
There should be some kind of punctuation at the end as well.
Really, you make us all look like illiterate morons.
Be a moron on your little blog by all means, but why trot it out in public?
You might even qualify for some classes.
Remember San Jacinto? Santa Anna got his @ss kicked.
Well if it’s the Texas State Guard then they can only be put on alert by order of the governor since the TSG is a service and support organization for the Texas National Guard.
There may be some independent militia groups who heightened their alert status though.
“March 6, 1836. On that fateful day, Davy Crockett woke up and walked from his bunk on the floor of the Alamo up to the observation post on the west wall. Col. William B. Travis and Jim Bowie were up there already. As the three gazed at the hordes of Mexicans moving steadily towards them, Davy turned to Bowie with a puzzled look on his face and asked, Jim, are we landscaping today? “
LOL!! I live in an affluent area in North Texas and this is the funniest thing I have read on this site in awhile, because it is so true!! There are a ton of illegals doing yard work and construction around here. Not as much construction these days.... I must say since 11/04/2008 I have been on the verge of tears at the state of our country. Many people that I know, that are clients, professionals, folks whose taxes WILL go up, etc., are all under Zeros influence....I have to say I am prone to sever friendships over this as I cannot come to terms with someone stupid enough to vote pro-communist. It blows my mind!!!
Life is going to get downright unbearable for liberals when our side starts fighting back by our rules. They're going to wish we'd simply play dirty politics, like they do.
From my last search...
have a wonderful evening : )
The patriots are the ones gonna be doin’ the round ups. (Pass me another magazine bubba.)
Angry over the course of the new Republican leadership, House Democrats slinked away late Sunday night, bound for a Holiday Inn in Ardmore, Okla. - just over the state line, and beyond jurisdiction of the Texas Rangers.
Texas needs to close the borders now. If coward Obama can’t; American blood will be on his hands.
Well, now add a new worry - the drug cartels in Mexico. They've been getting worse for a while now. We've just been looking the other way.
Are you ever not a complete dickhead, HG?
God help us. Do we have another Jimmy Carter President in Obama?
fan fan, I agree. Long live a free Texas.
The fact that they went to Michigan presumably looking for work indicates that they aren't the brightest bulbs on the Christmas Tree!
Do not count on Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano for much help.
Once they went to NM, I think, and once to OK.
Lost the battle, won the war.
Texas needs to close the borders now.
I think so much food comes across now that neither
“country” would allow that,,,sadly,,,
IIRC it’s 22 dead in the last 2 days,,,
Their civil war is spreading...
Still nothing about this on any of the local channels...
