Perry on Hannity. Good interview; Perry is strong..
If Perry was truly strong he would act like a man and call up the National Guard to patrol and seal the Texas border from an invasion of disease ridden parasites.
I like Perry. He gave a great interview. However, he lost a golden opportunity today. He should have held his own press,conference after the president’s press conference. He would have looked and sounded much more presidential than Obama. I think the contract would have been eye opening for many people.
Why doesn’t he call up the National Guard? Unfortunately we know why CA doesn’t.
I agree. Perry sounded and looked presidential. He made Obama look like a community organizer -— and not a good one at that. All Obama did in his presser was whine.
Mark Levin is next.
U.S. Const. art. I, § 10 No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.
U.S. Const. amend. X The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
All States retain the right to self defense. The Federal government has refused to provide for the common defense, the raison d'etre for the Federal government. The States must repel invasion or the people will.
The Texas Governor has the authority to call forth the state military forces and the reserve militia to repel the invasion.
Tex. Gov. Code Sec. 431.071
Tex. Gov. Code Sec. 431.001
Tex. Const. art. 4, § 7
The Arizona Governor has the authority to proclaim an emergency and mobilize all or any part of the state guard or the unorganized militia into service of the state.
Ariz. Const. art. 5, § 3
Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 26-174.
Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 26-122.
Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 26-121.
Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 26-172.
N.B. Unlike Arizona SB-1070, these do not pertain to immigration but to a proclamation of an emergency and the protection of lives or property.
But he can call up state guard
The federal executive has no authority over the Texas State Guard.
The federal executive has no authority over the Texas reserve militia.
The federal executive does have authority over the Texas Army National Guard and the Texas Air National Guard only when they are called into actual service of the United States. At all other times the Governor is the Commander in Chief of these forces.
Levin on now.
He can declare a state of emergency and call up the Guard.
Obama could sue, but he wouldn’t. He could attempt to over ride Perry, but Perry could refuse based on the rights of his sovereign state. Obama has not nationalized the guard. It remains under the control of the Governor. That would then require Obama to sue in the Federal Court. and we know how long that takes. Obama will be out if it ever gets to the SCOTUS.
Perry takes the same oath to defend his state as the POTUS does to defend this country.
Lawlessness beget lawlessness. You reap what you sow!
It is time SOMEONE stood up to this Mulatto Moron and his tyranny!
Governors cannot unilaterally call up the National Guard for reasons associated with an exigency beyond state borders. Likewise, were a governor do so and was overruled by the President (whose authority has higher standing) significant
embarrassment (or something like it) would surely follow.
Perry can also refuse the Presidents authority.
We have a crisis and the President is not acting in the interests of the U.S.
The stand off would obviously create a constitutional crisis, but Perry has the support of the American people
The National Defense Authorization Act 2008
Repeals provisions in section 1076 but still enables the President to call up the National Guard of the United States for active federal military service during Congressionally sanctioned national emergency or war.
Levin kicked butt!
Impeach the basturd.
Yes, but who can call the Guard into federal service? I think a law from 2008 said that only Congress can do so. Am I right?
Perry is RINO. I am from Texas. Please find me a CONSERVATIVE who is from Texas that supports Perry. There ARE NONE. That’s why he’s not running. He would have LOST the Governor’s race. FACT.
When not in federal service the Governor is Commander-in-Chief
“He shall be Commander-in-Chief of the military forces of the State, except when they are called into actual service of the United States. He shall have power to call forth the militia to execute the laws of the State, to suppress insurrections, and to repel invasions.” - Tex. Const. art. 4, § 7 http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/CN/htm/CN.4.htm#4.7
Some of these comments remind me that we’ll once again destroy all of our presidential candidates in 2016. There will be none pure enough, experienced enough, conservative enough, smart enough to be our presidential frontrunner.
The Democrats must laugh their a$$es off at us. We make their work so much easier.
I so agree with you. I really like Rick Perry. This time around we need a Man to run. I am all for Perry.
Not necessarily baloney.
During the last Governor’s election had all the Democrats voted for the Democrat candidate for Governor (White) that voted for Obama for President, Perry would not have won the election and Texas would have had a Democrat Governor.
I didn’t believe this when I first heard the comment but did have an opportunity to review the hard data that had been put together by a Houston group called Raging Elephants. It’s about turnout.
Ain’t it the truth. Maybe everyone in the country needs their own president.
The President cannot unilaterally do half the crap Obama's doing either. Play that game, make them stop you from defending your borders.
Easier to ask forgiveness than permission.
Perry needs to stand tall—call out the National Guard—call outthe Rangers—ask for Civilian Deputies to help patrol the borders—women too to take cair of the tikes, armed men to control the Gang Bangers and drug runners. If he should use all of his powers as a Governor to meet this new challenge! then he should run for President! (keep the bottle a way from him before a debate—let him drink after the debates only).
I think we also lost a lot of Freepers in the 2012 "Not conservative enough" bloodbath. Sad that some get so hateful and attack our would-be candidates with such ferocity that they kill any hope we might have had.
You are assuming the Dems would have run Davis had Perry not declared EARLY he was not running!
Silly me to think that POLICY matters more than Party Affiliation.
PERRY has Progressive Policies
Trans Texas Corridor
I know him personally, other than the Guardasil thing I have no issues with him. A RINO he is not.
Silly me to think that POLICY matters more than Party Affiliation.”
Depends. Point I was making was that in the Governor’s race where Perry ran against White, all it would have taken to beat Perry would be for all those in Texas who voted for Obama to come out once again and pull the “D” lever and Perry would not have won. I often wondered if White would have been Black if they would have turned out.
An act of Congress is one method for authorization but the Constitution also
allows the President to call up any American forces in order for him to perform
his Duty compelled by his oath as POTUS to protect our country from attack,
or in this case, invasion.
The president can order the border closed at any time without any approval
under most circumstances, health and welfare being one, invasion another.
There are more but they're not relevant to what's happening.
We are truly about to lose our Republic. If Perry takes bold and decisive action to call on Texans to seal the border then he would instantly become a historic figure. The very survival of our Republic depends on completely sealing our border.
It doesn't matter what some black robe tyrant says or some Federal official says, the very survival of our Republic demands that someone takes the bold step to rally the citizen militias to organize and seal the border.
My gut tells me that Perry will continue to just talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk,talk, talk,talk, talk.
True leaders ACT, political bags of wind TALK.
If you know Perry then you can tell him that history will judge him and most in government very harshly.
All our of so called leaders are standing by while our Republic is turned into a decaying third-world socialist sewer.
We have an invasion by anti-English, very anti-American hoards -- with the goal of overthrowing our culture, our language and our Republic.
Here’s the youtube of Rick Perry’s appearance on Hannity last night:
Perry is going to be on Hannity again tonight - they are supposed to tour the border together.
I was unclear in my original question about who can call up the Guard. I wasn't trying to give Obama a pass, saying he didn't have the authority.
Rather, I wondered about this: Suppose Perry found the courage to call up the Texas National Guard, and sent them to the border. Could Obama then federalize the Texas NG, and order them away from the border?
No truer words were ever said on Free Republic. And the huge majority of Americans would agree with him. Some would do so publicly, some only privately. Heck, even the black leadership knows that illegal immigration is bad.
The only complaints would come from delusional ultra-leftists and the La Raza traitors.
But like you, I'd bet that Perry will continue to talk, and not act. It's too risky; someone at The New York Times might call him a fascist or a racist.
Then he should immediately have defaulted to the TX Rangers and State Troopers. “Perry call the ball.” “Roger, ah, no ball, no ball.”
La Raza Rick continues to impress the left.
...and Good Hair enthralled FReepers. It must be tough for Perry now...trying to look all concerned without pissing off his illegal alien cheap labor crony capitalist buddies that keep him going for taxpayer funded favors. Wet finger waving is hard work. Have a heart.
Yes, La Raza Rick is working hard to shed a 14 year reputation of pandering to the ILLEGAL hordes his policies helped create. But he has new friends now. He gained those when he praised Hillary. Conservatives know he is still the loser he has always been.
No, the Constitution also allows the State to call up the States NG in a crisis bypassing
the POTUS should he not be up to, or willing to perform his Oath of Office or duty.
ALL the talk about Perry not being able to do anything is a LIE!
Remember that the next time you see it posted. It's not true. Perry has
the power to stop this as well, and is not performing the Same oath of office
that the President and every other leader takes!
Obama is not performing his oath of office and like a small spoiled child lighting the house on fire, is giving payback to the Congress for not doing what he is doing now,
Ignoring the will of the people and especially the Constitution.
Only the Congress can authorize Naturalization, the POTUS has no authority to act on his own.
Robert Sherman Quote:
Mr. Sherman thought that the interests of the State where the emigrant intended to
reside ought to be consulted, as well as the interests of the General Government.
He presumed it was intended by the Convention, who framed the Constitution, that Congress should
have the power of naturalization, in order to prevent particular States receiving citizens,
and forcing them upon others who would not have received them in any other manner. It was
therefore meant to guard against an improper mode of naturalization1, rather than foreigners
should be received upon easier terms than those adopted by the several States.
Whatever any nut case yells, this is a crisis, one that will destroy our country
and bring it down to third world status. Those INVADERS are also being bussed and brought
to our borders by their own top leaders, President or Dictator.
' This may be an unarmed invasion, but still an invasion. This no longer has anything to do with compassion by us. We must
protect ourselves from destruction.
I suggest that since you know him personally you are biased.
He’s Crony Capitalist RINO.
Since you know him ask him about why the Trans Texas Corridor was set to take Texas land and give it to a Spanish company to build a tollway that would charge Texas to drive on it?
Or Why his friends/family just happen to be employed at companies that are being considered for large contracts? I include Gaurdail in that as well (a relative worked for the company pushing Gardasil).
We can do MUCH BETTER than Perry. Or McCain. Or Romney.
Enough of the Big Government “In Crowd”
That's what Obama would do if the tables were turned, and no one would stop him. In fact, isn't that what Obama did.....he's daring those govs to stand up to the border treachery, knowing they're cowards when it comes to real action.
Perry and every other state leader has the Authority to bypass POTUS if he is not
performing his duty. In that case there is nothing Obama can do about it.
They ALL know this and are ignoring the safeguards intended to protect our sovereignty.
We are actually being invaded by people who are led by our own elected representatives.
I only met him recently through a friend. Prior to that I held the same views others that are negative about him have posted here. During the last election cycle I was brutal when it came to Perry regarding what I posted here on FR.
I have seen a curious factor at work with people.
I once worked with a guy who absolutely hated Bill Clinton. He railed against him constantly. A few years after he was no longer president, this guy and I were at an office building. The elevator doors opened, and low an behold, Bill Clinton stepped out.
This guy, started sputtering and put on a smiled and introduced himself in a glowing manner, and shoot Bill’s hand.
I stood there shocked.
Some people are “respecters” of persons, that is, they modify the way the act/talk/thin about a person based on their fame.
Note Bill Clinton was still Bill Clinton. What changed was this guy somehow feels he is with the “In” crowd now that he shook hands with Clinton.
I suppose you think Perry has actually changed? Or just your opinion of him?
