Posted on 06/30/2010 2:51:04 AM PDT by Bad~Rodeo
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is slamming the Obama administration over government signs posted in the Arizona desert warning visitors to beware of illegal smugglers, saying the signs are hardly the kind of border security plan her state needs.
"This is an outrage," Brewer said in a new reelection campaign ad.
The ad shows the governor standing next to one of the warning signs in the middle of the Arizona desert, 80 miles from the border and, according to the ad, 30 miles from Phoenix. The signs have in recent weeks drawn attention from border-state lawmakers who say they demonstrate how unsafe the region has become. In the ad, Brewer noted that she recently met with President Obama, who "promised that we would get word" on the administration's border security plan.
"Well, we finally got the message -- these signs. These signs, calling our desert an active drug and human smuggling area. These signs warning people of danger and telling them to stay away," Brewer said in the ad. "Washington says our border is as safe as it has ever been. Does this look safe to you?"
The ad ended with a confrontational message: "Washington is broken, Mr. President. Do your job. Secure our borders. Arizona and the nation are waiting."

Think how bad it would be if Arizona were a border state.
Congress and Obama sleeps.
The “lawless border region” of Arizonastan.
I was watching Ken Burns Civil War again last night. Made me again realize what a pure stranger we have in the WH.
This guy was not educated here as a young boy.
He didnt go to Kindergarten and the early grades here. He didnt play little league....chase girls....
He didnt have teachers who taught him about our constitution, our early founding fathers...the civilwar.
It’s doubtful that he understands Black Americans.
I dont relate therefore to what this man says...
Any wonder that this virtual nerd is lapping up the perks of being president. Hes more concerned about his addiction to golf than us.
Nov 2012 cant come fast enough...
Tick, tick, tick. Mexico is disintegrating, riddled with corruption, violence, drugs, the dregs of humanity. Coming to a neighborhood near you soon, since Mexico is migrating north. We already have a quarter of their population within our borders, and it looks like the last President of Mexico (Calderon?)was right. A year or so ago he laughed and said we either fix Mexico or Mexico’s moving in. Lovely.
I would vote for vandersloot over obama in 2012.
"We" fix Mexico?
Why the hell is that our responsibility? Looks like we need a good fence and they need a good revolution...We COULD arrange both.
...you know something, that’s not a bad idea...
I was laughed at by Libs before the election for saying that in many ways, he is not of this country. All I had done was come to the obvious conclusion that any American should have upon reading Dreams From My Father.
I went to grade school in Chicago in the 50s early 60s. Public schools were actually pretty good.
Many things in those early years were etched in our little minds, and made us who we are as Americans. It was like breathing in and breathing out...Mother, apple-pie, summer etc.
1963 we went through JFKs assasination and lost our innocence. We watched Shepherd and Glenn and the other space shots in school....
Where was Obama? In INdonesia....a loner....a stranger to the students there too. HOw did he communicate with them?
I’m not faulting the guy for the cards he was dealt in life... but the reality is...He’s not of this land...in mind and spirit....
He’s not and he never will be.....Is there any wonder that he probably wretches thinking of us killing other Muslims in wars....?
Is it any wonder of his overt anti Israel policies?
Just read the sign for the first time.
It seems that we’ve ceeded everything south of Interstate 8 to Mexico now.
Worst Pres__ent ever.
FWIW, I’ll share a few vivid dreams I had about a decade ago, which upon awaking, didn’t seem feasible, but today, trends and events are occurring which are pointed directly to them on multiply converging approaches.
Many of those dreams were apocalyptic in nature, as in tornadoes, earthquakes, meteor showers, tsunamis, volcanism, major tectonic movements.
A fifth column and Mexican invasion of the poor with communistic and socialistic influence would swell into the US from the US southwest.
Major volcanic activity would begin throughout the Palm Springs to Indio to Salton Sea to Sea of Cortez valley, terminating in a major land subsidence, and pyroclastic flow south of Joshua Tree National Park.
The continuing seismic activity would extend to Washington state, and a no-man’s land would be declared from Walla Walla Washington, in a arced triangular area down to the Mexican border at the southeastern and southwestern corners of the Arizona-Mexico border.
Tsunamis would engulf the US NW coastal areas miles inland and flow from the south along rolling hills and low lying topography.
While the Aztlan and Mecha organizations would push from the south, they would form a new capital in CA in Alta, Ca.
The Chinese would strike into US Mainland traveling generally along the Hi 40 corridor in an easterly direction from the coast, using operational art similar to what the allies used in IraqII without a major front, but by maneuver and spearheaded thrusts into US territory.
Meanwhile, Polish and Romanian forces were patrolling with armor and helicopter and small infantry units in small air cavalry patrols south of Colorado Springs throughout New Mexico.
Texas became the new industrial complex for the US as it had the older industrial infrastructure to support American longevity.
The bloodiest battle in American History would occur at the Battle of Seven Palms.
Several revolutions in military affairs would become manifest in those times, including the obsolescence of artillery and the substitution of satellite based weapon systems for indirect fire support.
Many of these events would be portended by events at Mt Lassen, CA.
While all the above were from separate vivid dreams, none of them really had any validity in my waking moments upon investigating any similarities, but have recently begun to form and do not appear to be subsiding or diverging. For example the maps I saw of the ‘no-man’s land’ flowed along the CA-NV border, which at that time had no significant historical trend in seismic activity. Today, that is a fairly common trace from USGS.
US forces from the SW US today are training with Romanians and Bulgarians, which hadn’t been earlier conceived.
The nutty idea of Mexico invading the US from the southwest now appears to be in the middle stages of formulation from a bottom up Mexican grassroots level with somebody influencing them. (it isn’t Mexican drug related any more than all Americans might be portrayed as wild run amok pistol toting vigilantes)
A decade ago, I simply recognized the dreams were so vivid, and shown by others in the spiritual domain, that I simply felt it better to place faith first in Christ, study what He provided in Scripture, and let Him guide me as to the best interpretation. Some of the dreams involved deception, some appeared true. I settled for simply taking the position that whatever they were, the issues had significance in the spiritual domain, be they true or demonically influenced, I simply placed veracity first in Christ.
Today, I must admit I wonder how much further current events will converge on those wild prognostications. They seem to becoming much more feasible today than a decade ago.
For those thinking of moving to Arizona, I suspect Texas is a better homestead. Above all, place faith continually in God, what He provides, and His Plan for each of us, again through faith in Christ.
Maybe some group should put up signs in Spanish facing the other way some 80 miles south that inform trespassers that the eintire region is now “our mobile, remote target range” and that we will be firing live rounds at remote drones that appear to be walking people and that anyone tresspassing on this range will be assumed to be a “remote walking drone” and not a human being. Lots of folks with rifles accross the front fender sort of randomly dotting the area might reinforce the notion. If our gummint won’t do it, don’t mean we can’t. After all, our gummint has already ceded sovereignty of the territory in question.
If he really knew how to push J6P's emotional buttons imagine how much more quickly Obama could accomplish his mission.
The sad part of all this is that huge numbers of Americans aren’t even aware this is happening. To them, this swath of Arizona land is so far from their existence they have no clue that it’s formerly sovereign American territory.
Couple this with the fact we have an occupier of the White House who sees nothing through an American prism, but rather through that of a global one. Borders are inconsequential to people like 0bama, because to them the world should be one socialistic mass.
Yeah, I found that telling of this administration.
First of all, I would guess cell phone and any phone service is tough to come by in these isolated regions.
Second, if 911 service were available, what are the police going to do against heavily armed trafficing?
It is telling that an urban area solution was applied to near-war-like conditions. The administartion doesn't have a clue.
BTW, this sign is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. Who's the brainless bozo who came up with this?
There is very little that has happened that has surprised me after a close read of Dreams.
If the sign weren’t real, it’d be a great joke.
If it is necessary to put up such a sign, there are serious problems.
Trouble is, these kinds of warnings have been up for years.
Arizona Game and Fish has been warning in the annual hunting regs that hunting south of I-10/I-8 is dangerous since 2008, at least. I need to check my copies of the regs from ‘07 and earlier to see how far back the warnings go...
Okay, the Fall ‘07 regs say that in the area bounded by the international border and both interstate highways “Homeland security issues along the international border may affect the quality of a person’s hunt.”
Those of us who hunt these areas were fully cognizant of the fact that this meant that the two-legged game was liable to shoot back!
Put some signs in the desert ‘You are welcomed in Washington D.C.!
Even the Scouts were warned and discouraged frm doing service projects, hikes, or camp outs in these areas Game and Fish.
