Cool Obama taunts Republicans on illegal child immigration and says ....
The Daily Mail Online ^ | July 9, 2014 | DAVID MARTOSKO, U.S. POLITICAL EDITOR

Posted on 07/10/2014 6:29:14 AM PDT by Uncle Chip

they must 'rediscover the concept of negotiation and compromise' to approve his $3.7 BILLION funding request

President Barack Obama coolly taunted congressional Republicans on Wednesday for dithering on his demand for billions to handle a flood of illegal immigration children streaming across the U.S.-Mexico border.

At the same time he flatly denied that his own policy decisions have led to the rapidly expanding human tragedy.

Calling the deluge a 'humanitarian situation on the border,' not an emergency or crisis, he parried claims that a 2012 executive order delaying the deportation of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants .... incentivized children in Central America to make dangerous journeys to and across the Rio Grande river.

'I think the challenge we have that has really caused a spike,' Obama said in Dallas, 'is the significant security challenges in the Central American countries themselves, and smugglers who increasingly recognize that they can make money transporting individuals ....across the border.'

Those conditions haven't significantly evolved since he took office in 2009, many Republicans point out. But a series of reports from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador indicate that his policy, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), was widely misinterpreted to mean that today's under-18 set could enter the U.S. and stay indefinitely....

Obama claimed Wednesday that his DACA policy, along with a far more ambitious 'comprehensive immigration reform' bill that has languished in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, should be seen as freeing up resources to tackle short-term challenges like the one currently plaguing Texas and Arizona.

'DACA and comprehensive immigration reform generally, would allow us to reallocate resources,' he said, because immigration officers would no longer be 'chasing after families who may have been here for five or 10 years ....

There is no doubt that Obama would use these billions to increase the deluge coming over the border.

To hell with $3.7 billion.

It would be much, MUCH cheaper to send them back.

ISTOOK: Flying illegals home would be 99.5 percent cheaper than Obama’s plan

There are laws on immigration and the president must enforce them.

He's acting like all this is happening in a vacuum and our media and all the journalists are complicit.

When this country goes down, it will be their fault.

I was watching Obama when I realized that he was putting out “The Old Smooth Act”. I’ve seen that act dozens of times from humans of every color and from both sexes. People use “The Old Smooth Act” when they are in trouble and they want to slip away and go do whatever they want to do instead of their job.

Here’s how I dealt with people giving me “The Old Smooth Act”.

“Save that bulls**t for someone else. Now, get back and do your job or I’ll replace you with someone who will do your job.”

Obama is just an employee. He’d like us to think he’s a king, but he’s not. And he’s begged us not once, but twice to have his job. Now, he doesn’t want to do his job? OK. Then quit you miserable slug.

This quote from H.L. Menken, made in the late '20's seems appropriate.

"As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."* *---H.L..Menken

Apologies to morons everywhere.

TADSLOS INSIGHTFULLY POSTED: Every bit of this has a political aim......it’s an outright invasion.

A Murietta resident told Breitbart News that the illegals are being deliberately sent to Republican-supporting communities like his city....a vengeful message to those opposed to open borders.

“The Obama administration thinks that if it floods our streets, in small town America, they can force us into immigration reform,” he said. “These immigrants should not be here. The only reason that they are coming here is for political reasons.”

“This is a small town – it’s mostly conservative – and the federal government knows that. The main reason a lot of us are out here protesting is because we do not want these people being dumped into our small town where we do not have programs or the resources to take care of them properly.”......Murietta protesters have been attacked by left-wingers hurling epithets carrying signs reading "you are on stolen land."

VIDEO Gen. Michael Hayden: Treat Immigration Crisis Like Insurgency
Newsmax By Courtney Coren | 09 Jul 2014 12:19 PM / FR Posted by robowombat

GEN HAYDEN: The invasion is an insurgency---"a criminal enterprise that's so big and so powerful that, as a byproduct, it actually threatens the US government."

The only way to describe it......all they need are the guns....they know where the weapons are....and so does Obama. One of their oft-stated goals is to takeback the SW.....a counter-protest sign in Murietta announced "you are on stolen land."

This is being facilitated w/ our tax dollars by The Congressional Hispanic Caucus---Becerra, Guttierez, chief among them....and their allies......it’s a barbarian invasion---the savages have said they want everything we have. They would fundamentally transform America into a Third World....

And the stupid in the WH says its "our" responsibility to feed, medicate and shelter the barbarian hordes who want to destroy us.

=========================================

On Tuesday, Obama urged Congress to cough up $4 billion to deal with the flood of children from Central America – and others from parts unknown – crossing the border into Texas. Obama called this mess “an urgent humanitarian situation,” but what he did not do is take responsibility for almost single- handedly causing this mess two years prior.

Mexico made deal to send more illegal aliens to the U.S
Examiner.com ^ | 7/09/14 | Dave Gibson / FR by blueyon

On Monday, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina held a joint press conference in Playas de Catazaja, Mexico, to officially announce an agreement to make it easier for those making the illegal journey to the United States from Central America, to cross into Mexico.

The Southern Border Program to Improve Passage, will provide for more border checkpoints along Mexico's border with Guatemala, and offer more protection and even emergency medical care to those making their way north. The illegal aliens will receive a so-called Regional Visitor's Card, according to El Universal. (Excerpt) Read more at examiner.com ...

The border with Mexico should be closed to all traffic coming and going — ALL TRAFFIC — until Mexico shuts down the flow of immigrants from Central America.

Shut it all down and put an end to all commercial activity as well until Mexico does its job of cutting off this flow of illegals.

To reason, argue, discuss with someone in a position of leadership who is in that position as a voice for an unseen, unknown ruling entity begits the same results as reasoning, arguing, discussing anything with an idiot, A huge waste of time.

Obama will continue on his course no matter. The only way to stop the man is to impeach him.

Then there’s Joe.

Obama can talk until the cows come home but I don’t know how many people (aside from media) who buy his “cool talk” anymore, esp on immigration. From what I see on online news sites, even people claiming to be democrats are appalled at the mess. And they don’t think throwing money at the situation will help either.

Perry last night said 2% of the 3.7B was for security enhancements. He did not specify where the remainder goes. Seems to me that is very close to the figure one of the senators said that would be the cost to fly everyone one of them home. I like that idea, send them back but do it COD.

"Humanitarian situation." Like Obama and his allies care about these kids.

Reporters and congressional representatives are turned away.

Volunteers are being turned away.

Donations are being refused.

No one may take pictures.

No one may interview the illegals.

Catholic priests forbidden to talk to, pray with or give sacraments to Catholic youths. Religious ministers are refused entry.

This isn't so much a "humanitarian crisis" as much as it is political theater. These kids and their families are being duped and used by the Lord of Lies. The children: lured, exhausted, hungry, promised, raped, enticed, abused, infected, bewildered, in need and in pain.

Bad as many of Obama's policies have been, this strikes me as one of the worst. It's 100% cynical. Brutal. Criminally abusive. Immoral. I can't adequately voice my outrage over how he's using these vulnerable people.p>

We have any C17’s in passenger configuration lying around. We have runways at Lackland. Stop in Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala.

Get everyone’s names. Schedule their flights. Tell the governments when they will be landing and to have the parents at the airport. Round the clock flights until everyone is sent back.

Time to complete project with 5 planes? Less then a week. Cost? Maybe 20 million and most of that is in fuel and on board snacks.
