The Obama Administration plans to withdraw National Guard troops from the Texas, New Mexico and California borders by the end February under a new Southwest security plan, even as turmoil in Mexican border cities grows, according to documents obtained by The Washington Examiner.

Should the Obama Administration be put on political suicide watch? First, they obnoxiously defend their obnoxious TSA 'grope American' policy. Now, they're going to pull the miniscule, phony baloney "we secure the borders" theater, by pulling back the National Guard.
Is Glenn Beck correct in that the only reasonable explanation for what Obama's doing is to "provoke us"?
I’m curious if there is a sufficient budget in this plan to provide remaining border patrols with white flags.
It would be racist to protect our borders.
I bet Obama would reinstate those troopers post haste then!
But they are going to spend 52 million on plants that were damaged at the fence
Given the results of the last election, the Democrats need all the voters they can get; ergo, the open border with Mexico.
When the NG was on the border during the Bush Administration they really had an impact they were a clear presence. I haven’t seen any of them this time except a few in Walmart.
The border states need to raise Border Protection Regiments as part of the State Guard. Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico would due that. One advantage is that local people would be there and know the regions fully. They could be armed with infantry weapons (including light machine guns), so if there is a firefight with Zetas, they could give their own.
If the Feds don’t like it, fry them.
I hate the people that dont hate zero!
“Should the Obama Administration be put on political suicide watch?”
I always thought they were only trying for one ultra-damaging term.
The administration in total is using these tactics just making it clear to us who is in charge and sadly enough "we the people" are letting them get away with it.
Posting the National Guard was a cheap one-liner for the President. TOTUS told him to say it, so he said it. It was stupid political theater before the election, and now the election is over.
The deployment was ill designed and completely ineffective anyway. Let them go home, because they’re not accomplishing anything out in the desert, anyway.
And if the DREAM Act passes, there will be no border to enforce. All any illegal has to do is walk up to the first cop he sees and claim to have a right to stay in the country while his DREAM Act eligibility is adjudicated. That process could take years. And during those years, he is granted, automatically, a Green Card and working papers, no matter how specious his claim may be.
Does anybody remember the Seinfeld episode where George did the oposite of all his normal decisions? I’m often reminded of that when I hear about a new plan by Obama. I ask myself, “What would most normal people do? OK, he will be doing the opposite.” Take this latest case in point!
This is turning into the Castanza Administration.
The democrats pretend to care about the illegals, just as they pretend to care about Blacks, so they can get their votes. If, hypothetically, there were a Constitutional Amendment passed that forbade anyone from voting unless they were born in the United States, the dems would drop any interest in amnesty in two seconds.
It’s never what Obama says... it’s what he does. This little action says all that need to be said about his marxist agenda... period.
And send 6000 marines to Costa Rica for military what?
“Dismantle the TSA and send the screeners to PATROL THE SOUTHERN BORDER.
They may as well remove them, they were only placed there for “show” anyway.
“Is Glenn Beck correct in that the only reasonable explanation for what Obama’s doing is to “provoke” us?”
Initially, I thought no. I just assumed he was a power hungry socialist who wants to “transform” this country into a socialist nation. However, I am now changing my mind. Why else ignore the border and the deaths? Why support the TSA and this obvious invasion of privacy and the fact that the Muslims get off scott free? Why the house bill that won’t allow a person to grow tomatoes in their own backyard? If demonstrations take place, and violence/destruction occurs, can’t he enact some sort of power that would prevent the 2012 elections?
There were never any plans for the Guard to do anything significant anyway. Heaven help any poor guardsman who offended a wetback!
Going way back to what this marxist quisling was up to in Honduras also said all that needed to be said.
... and Kenya/Odinga before that.
No game is won when offense is not allowed .......
Clearly Erkel Mugabes ROE for this “game” have eliminated or disallowed any offense an much of the defense to forward his agenda.
Going to hang a BHO Christmas ornament from my Christmas tree....
First off I did not read the article at the link. (browser issues)
But from the bit you posted: New Southwest Security plan?
Either my TSH levels are too high making me uptight/scared or Beck is really on to some heavy doo doo. I will know in a few weeks per blood work order.
I have been away from the internet for a few days but wonder if the Grab Muh Gun the new Civil War Posters have been around here.
If they are for real we will know when the doo doo hits the fan. I tend to think they are nothing more than a resounding gong.
The prepare plan Beck has been advising is nothing new to Freepers as allot of us started doing that years ago.
Oh and I wonder if those NG troops he sent ever even made it past the office pencil pushing work out into the field.
Wow I see humor in that but OTOH not a bad idea.
Big deal—they were just picking up the illegal alien cigarette butts anyway.
In other news, the White House has announced that, under a new security plan, the presidential Secret Service staff is being reduced by 90% by laying off older personnel. Additionally personnel will be unarmed and will not carry communications equipment. The black Chevy Suburban vehicles will be replaced with powder blue Chevy Volts.
Our Government is ANTI- American! We have allowed our enemies to rule over us! They want murdering drug gangs and terrorists free entry into our country but they molest nuns and our children in our airports. And what are we doing about it? Nothing.
NM Ping List
This move is irrelevant in its impact on border security. As posters above have said, the ones deployed on the border weren’t actually protecting the border, they shuffled papers and ran errands at best.
It was just another political stunt.
No surprise at all. The deployment began just soon enough before the election for news stories to run about the President getting serious about illegal immigration. Since the election is over, there’s no reason for the charade to continue.
Just waiting for the elections to be over.
Scammed the citizens living in danger on our borders.
ARTICLE 4, SECTION. 4.
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government,
**and shall protect each of them against Invasion**; and on Application of the Legislature, or of
the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
Payback for having the good people here in NM vote for a great conservative for Governor, and for losing the house seat in southern NM.
This was said of Abraham Lincoln and George Bush.......and probably every President in between.
It’s true the US owes a common defense. My point, however, is that the states don’t have to sit by while being invaded if the President does nothing about it.
