Car Jack used to Breach Border Fence

Just about a week ago, we were given a video exposing a major breach on the U.S./Mexico border near Lukeville, Ariz. located about 100 miles southwest of Tucson.

We checked its authenticity with our sources at the Department of Homeland Security who have confirmed that the video is real and was taken recently.

Watch this distressing video that was first posted by Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever and see how, despite claims by the Administration, the border is far from secure.

Garrett and Jane Hardin: A Personal Recollection (Hemlock Society adviser to Hardin on FAIR — who with his wife committed suicide)

Tribute to Garrett Hardin - by John H. Tanton, M.D.

My interest in population developed in the late 1950s as I was finishing medical school. By 1975 I had been elected national president of Zero Population Growth, an organization inspired by Paul Ehrlich’s book “The Population Bomb.” Then in the late 1970s the US fertility rate fell to below replacement, and immigration emerged as the main source of domestic population growth. To Garrett’s dismay, ZPG declined to address these new circumstances.

When in 1979 I helped set up the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) to tackle the immigration question, Garrett served from the beginning as an advisor. Later he consented to set aside his aversion to board meetings by joining the FAIR Board. Much of his later writing was on the demographic aspects of immigration and can be found by searching under his name in the archives of a quarterly journal of the immigration reform movement, TheSocialContract.com. The bookstore at this site offers for sale three of Dr. Hardin’s books that the Social Contract Press reprinted: Stalking the Wild Taboo; Mandatory Motherhood: The True Meaning of the Right to Life; and Creative Altruism: Source and Survival. Also available is his The Immigration Dilemma: Avoiding the Tragedy of the Commons, published by FAIR.

It is hard to see one’s friends and people we admire decline physically to the point where they decide to exit this vale of tears felo de se. Garrett’s post polio syndrome had reduced him to using a wheel chair; he could no longer swim well. Macular degeneration cost him the reading vision in his right eye. Life in a nursing home was not an option for this man of letters. Jane had been diagnosed with ALS - amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease, one of the least desirable ways to leave this planet. It worsened. Both were long time members of the Hemlock Society, and decided to take matters into their own hands. This can give us a lot to think about, especially as our own infirmities come to the fore - and since my wife and I live in a state that counts Dr. Jack Kievorkian among its citizens.

I have not attacked you personally, so I would appreciate the same consideration.

I apologize for the assumptions I made.

But regardless of its origins, they are not a lefty site. They promote conservatives and criticize liberal positions in regards to immigration.

So what? What is your hang up about this anti-immigration video?

What is bothering you about illegals being captured on film breaking into America?

Ending mass immigration, and especially illegal mass immigration is noble.

I came here when I saw the title and then saw who was putting out the information — Numbers USA and Homeland Security.

Sorry to have invaded your world.

Carry on.

Unless Numbers USA is putting out BS-the original video came from the good sheriff. Does it really matter? It simply demonstrates the vulnerability of our borders. That is a truth no one can deny.

That is a very rugged and strong “Sheep Herder’s” jack, (AKA Handyman or Hi-lift jack) not some cheap bumper jack.

We use those jacks to pack 100lb tobacco bales

Great for changing front tires on 150 hp tractors

Definitly not your ordinary car jack but still

crazy how easy to bypass that fence

Early voted today for Santoram..No O in `12

Sure you don’t have Numbers USA confused with another group?
