Rick Perry Slams Obama’s Blame Game, Demands National Guard For Border [VIDEO]
The Daily Caller ^ | July 13 2014 | Katie Frates

Posted on 07/13/2014 10:26:37 AM PDT by PoloSec

exas Gov. Rick Perry slammed President Barack Obama on Fox News Sunday, once again demanding the National Guard, and called on Obama to stop the blame game and get up and lead.

Host Brit Hume asked Perry to explain why he wants the National Guard sent to Texas, inquiring skeptically, “What exactly would National Guardsman and women do on the border?”

Perry explained that the National Guard acts as a front-line deterrent for illegal immigrants, and is critically important now, because most border patrol agents are stuck taking care of the illegal immigrant children. “The president was not even aware that his border patrol was back 40 or 45 miles from the border at these checkpoints,” he said. “They need to be right on the ripper, they need to be there as a show of force.”

“This flood of children is pulling away the border patrol from their normal duties of keeping bad people, keeping the drug cartels, they’re being distracted.”

Hume pushed back, questioning how effective the National Guard could be when they aren’t allowed to actually detain anyone. “They’re not, under the law, allowed to apprehend any of these children that are crossing, are they?” Hume asked.

“It’s the visual of it that’s the most important,” Perry countered. “Their conversations are being monitored with calls back to Central America, and the message is ‘hey come on up here, everything is great, they’re taking care of us,’ and that needs to stop.”

Hume then asked if Perry thought the presence of the National Guard would really deter children who have already “made the harrowing journey.”

“Are they really going to be deterred by the presence of troops along the border who won’t shoot them, and can’t arrest them?”

“What we’re talking about is sending the message back now to staunch the bleeding,” Perry replied. “Those that are already here, to address them, to humanitarily [sic] take care of them, to make sure they are safe — to reunite them with their families — that is the most humanitarian thing we can do.”

Perry again stressed the necessity of the National Guard to help get border patrol agents back to their actual jobs. “Right now, reports of up to 70 percent of them [border patrol] are taking care of these young people who have come in, rather than do their job of securing the border.”

Hume brought up President Obam, and his hope that Perry would “put the heat” on the Texas congressional delegation to pass “this nearly $4 billion dollar measure” that he is proposing.

And Perry had some choice words for the president.

“Very little of it [the bill] is for border security. And I think until he gets realistic about the problem and how you deal with the problem, and it is a border security issue, and we’ve got a track record now of five plus years of him disregarding what is going on on the border, so here’s his opportunity to truly lead,” Perry declared.

“Don’t blame this on anyone. Be a leader, lay out a plan.”

Hume then asked Perry to clarify if he was saying he would disregard the president and not pressure the Texas delegation to pass the bill.

“So in other words, governor, you don’t particularly support the bill, and you’re not going to be encouraging your delegation to pass it. Is that a fair assessment?”

“I think you have distilled the correct answer,” Perry replied.

Um... Perry could just deploy the Texas NG and force a Constitutional question of states’ rights when the federal government refuses to uphold their end of the bargain.

Is there a reason Perry can’t just call out the National Guard himself? I thought that was within a governor’s power.

What he really ought to do is restore the Texas Republic and secede, but above everything else, Perry wants to be president. He won’t do anything that would jeopardize his chances.

“Is there a reason Perry can’t just call out the National Guard himself? I thought that was within a governor’s power.”

Yes, the governor of Texas can use the Texas Army National Guard for this issue. However, if he does, it is a “state” issue and must be PAID FOR BY THE STATE. Even big Texas could not afford to pay for a large number of soldiers placed on active duty for state matters for any length of time. A state cannot afford to pay for a large standing military.

Most folks do not understand that even National Guard troops, except for maybe the state’s adjutant general, are paid for by the federal government....even the weekend drills come from federal monies. So, in reality (monetarily), a state doesn’t really own its national guard.

Yes, the somewhat remain nominally under the control of a governor, but if he/she cannot pay for their (non-federal) use, then what good are they?

Also, IF the governor should call up, on state duty, his national guard soldiers, the POTUS can “federalize” the troops and take control from the governor if he/she chooses to do so.

I think he can do it on his own. However, 1) this is not just a Texas problem, and, 2) there is no doubt the border patrol is doing exactly what Obama wants.

If Perry is the lone governor to deploy the Guard to secure a state border Obama might consider that worthy of escalation and in turn nationalize the Guard and order them to stop "interfering" with the border patrol. Then things might get really nasty.

Of course, maybe I'm wrong.

When did Brit Hume start drinking the Kool-Aid?

So he wants Perry to push the Texas delegation to support a $3.7 billion dollar bill that will effectively a lot less than 2% to the border crises while spending the rest of the money on whatever the hell Obama wants to spend the money on.

As Rep Louie Gohmert articulated this week, that $3.7 Billion bill currently equates to $67,000+ per illegal crossing the border.

One of the most amazing statistics Perry mentioned was that only twenty percent of the people coming in are children. Brit never picked up on it, evidently, and this writer did not. All the discussion is about “the children.”

You obviously don't realize that the entire US/Mexico border could be sealed by less than 200 Paladin howitzers (plus support & logistics).

Obama is giving us the finger. He shoots pool and goes to parties instead of dealing with this problem. He has a meeting with Perry and releases photos of himself yucking it up. He’s giving the American people the finger.
“I dare you to make me do my job! Nyeah! Nyeah!”
This is the one issue that can really be shoved up Obama’s donkey. Foreign nationals are invading our country. What’s he doing about it? Playing pool? Fire the worthless slug.

Yes a Gov , any gov can call out the BG
but for it to be a deterrent as perry outlines it must have the POTUS backing it
plus why should Texas pay for it alone?
If a state calls out the guard without the potus approval the state bears the cost

I just don’t understand why he doesn’t take his state’s responsibility more serious than what he does. The gangs are recruiting in those holing centers while terrorists are slipping in as well. I realize he is thinking all politics here though Perry could just deploy the Texas National Guard. It’s way overdue (Imo).

Perry should not plead with Obama’s administration any further in helping to protect that border. They are not about to do it. Have a showdown, once and for all. People will support this. Most people that I talk to are very angry about the illegals coming in. It’s insane in how the government has been handling this for years (now this)... Are we a sovereign nation or allowing for open borders. Didn’t 9-11 change our way of thinking. It’s unreal what is going on!

Correct.

IF IT FAILS to do those things, the States can do them themselves!

You have a state being overrun illegally with illegals. The feds are not going to do anything at this point other than planning train stops to encourage this mass invasion to occur. By bringing the Texas Guard in puts this rightly so in a discussion of this border and states’ rights. Pretty soon, the country will not be sovereign any longer. Talk is not getting this country protected.

There is a cheaper alternative. The Mexican Govt is issuing 'visitor cards' to CA migrants. IF they intend to hit the US border.

Mexico has **no incentive** to stop the movement of illegals, as they have done in the past. Perhaps payback for Fast and Furious?

anyway, please note this -
To its north, Mexico shares a border with the United States that is 3,169 km (1,969 mi) in length. Our two countries share the same track gauge of 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in), with **multiple cross border links**.

CG Railway operates a train ferry between the port of Mobile at Mobile, Alabama and the port of Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz. - Bet you didn't know this, eh? Wait, it gets better.

To its south, Mexico shares an 871 km (541 mi) border with Guatemala and a 251 km (156 mi) border with Belize. There is an inactive link with rail transport in Guatemala at Ciudad Tecún Umán in Ayutla, San Marcos, with a break of gauge (1,435 mm / 914 mm).

Step 1
NO **rail traffic** or goods to Mexico. Or *from* Mexico.

Step 2
Fine the US partners (Yes, US companies own/run the railroads in Mexico, look it up) if steps aren't taken to stop train hoppers.

If these don't work -
Disable the rail link between Central America and Mexico proper. (ie the Beast) Destroy a single bridge by drone strike if needs be.

That stops the incoming.

For those here - land C-17s at McAllen and start loading 'em up. Honduras has over 30 airports. Land in rotation and spread the wealth **back home** for them.

Simplistic as all get out - maybe stupid even.
And absolutely not going to happen.

Just remember, A Governor named Billy Clinton *lost* an election in AR because of the Cuban boatlift and the problems the Cubans brought to AR via Fort Chaffee.

A President name Jimmy Carter *lost* an election, in part, because of the Viet Boat people and the Cubans.

"Bammy don't care, he's out no matter what.

But all those Dem Senators and Reps had better be looking over their shoulder - because once the **true** number of this mass invasion comes out, they'll be looking for a new job. No matter how hard the lame stream media tries to cover it up....

This is going to be an interesting summer and election cycle.

This has been a topic of some discussion on the Texas Board, so here’s what I posted there:

***

Specifically in terms of military authority: If Perry calls up the Texas National Guard and sends them to the border again (he’s done that once already as governor) the Feds will then exercise their option to ‘nationalize’ the TNG and send them home (or they can send them anywhere else, actually.) Federal control of the National Guard has long since been established.

In short - Perry can call out the National Guard, but the Feds can countermand his order if they want to.

There is also the Texas State Guard that answers only to the state of Texas, but it’s less a combat outfit and more an engineering, medical and logistics outfit in terms of their expertise and deployment. The State Guard is also not very big and not well funded - but they’re already deployed at the border anyway. They’re currently running Operation Border Star VII in conjunction with other agencies.

***

Yeah, a lot of people don’t know the command structure. Also, I used the wrong term - it’s not nationalized but Federalized. Anyway, it’s a little more complicated than that but that’s essentially how it works.

As mentioned yesterday, he could be trying to visibly exhaust all his alternatives before going ahead and calling out the National Guard. Basically, he could be creating an atmosphere where it would look very, very, very bad for the Feds to try to Federalize the deployed National Guard. At this point, the Obama Administration is starting to shy away from that sort of thing when the media spotlight is on an event.

I don’t know that this is what he’s doing, but his actions are consistent with it.

***

BO can call up the TNG under certain conditions - but if he does the callup, the Feds have to pay for it and the Feds are responsible for their actions just like any Regular Army unit. There are also limitations on how, when and why the Feds can call up the Guard, even with the approval of the state’s governor.

However, if Perry calls up the Guard for State Active Duty, Texas gets stuck with the bills. Oh, and the Feds can demand to be reimbursed for used supplies, equipment, ammo, etc. at almost whatever rate they feel like naming. The Feds can also Federalize the called up unit and then do whatever with it - up to and including sending them to Iraq or Afghanistan.

***

There you go, my $0.02.

How can one's actions against "authorities" who are acting against the charter from whence they derive their authority be illegitimate?
This is to say: is acting against one acting under the color of authority, even when it is clear they are outside their sphere of authority, prohibited?

Physically push the illegals back into the river?
What?????

I prefer 155mm HE rounds 7mdash; that will quickly deter illegal border crossing.

If no additional illegals come into the country, that would stop the flow, which is the real problem.

Wikipedia on the US/Mexico border:

The border's total length is 1,954 mi, according to figures given by the International Boundary and Water Commission. It is the most frequently crossed international border in the world, with approximately 350 million legal crossings being made annually.
[…]
There are an estimated half a million illegal entries into the United States each year.

Wikipedia on the Paladin:

Crew:                     6
Effective firing range:  11 mi
Operational range:      216 mi
So to cover the border we'd need 1,954 / 22 ≈ 89 Paladins… but that's an under-count because that would entail abutting them directly on the border. We would actually want them back a bit.
c² = b² + a²
11²  = 5.5² + a²
121 = 30.25 + a²
90.75 = a²
9.5 ≈ a
So, we could put them 5.5 mi away from the border, allowing them to cover 19 mi of border; this would mean that we'd need 1,954 / 19 ≈ 103 paladins [103 * 6 = 618 men].
Or, we could put them 9.5 mi away from the border, allowing them to cover 11 mi of border; this would mean that we'd need 1,954 / 11 ≈ 178 paladins [178 * 6 = 1,068 men].
(Of course we'd need logistics to support them: meals, munitions, mail, etc.)

See, securing the border is not as hard as they make it out to be.

Hume has really turned into a lefty the past few years. He should move back to ABC.

I don’t guess the NG would do any good if our media constantly reports that they can’t do anything. Personally, I think they should be allowed to shoot to kill. Especially when a drug runner runs his SUV into the river and starts swimming. Shoot him before he gets halfway across.

Limp. That's the way Governors are these day. They turn to CentralAuthority.gov for everything.

Part of the reason we have States is in local and regional power and speed in process.

Our founders 'gave' certain 'powers' to a State. In the past those powers were abused at times, but Governors have to power to engage in war with foreign invaders and threats. Part of the reason States have that ability was the conflicts with Indians, and such.

Only Congress and a State can enter into a war.

Art 1, Sec 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.'

Federal control of the National Guard has long since been established.

The NG commanders could say fuck you and ignore those illegal orders — if they are called up to stop an invasion then Art 4, Sec 4 of the US Constitution compels the federal government to provide assistance, removing manpower is the opposite of this and is Treason according to the US Constitution:

US Constitution
Art 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.

Art 3, Section. 3.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
In short, ordering the national guard away from the border would tear the mask off the political elites and reveal them to unequivocally be guilty of treason — the great thing about this is that if Congress were to try something, they could be arrested and tried for treason.

What would YOU have a state militia do against federal authority?

Simple:

  1. If that federal authority acts against the lawful stopping of the invasion — kill them.
  2. If the federal authorities try to do nothing, seeing it as a no-win situation, gin up agitation in other states.
  3. If the federal authorities help, then good.
    (But don't be too trusting — they could be trying to maneuver to get a good shot at planting a knife in your back.)

'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.'
This is am invasion.
This can be seen in the following: if a State were to ruthlessly kill all who entered its borders, yet no-one did, then no-one would be so killed.

?
Really?
“Simple:

1. If that federal authority acts against the lawful stopping of the invasion — kill them.
2. If the federal authorities try to do nothing, seeing it as a no-win situation, gin up agitation in other states.
3. If the federal authorities help, then good.
(But don’t be too trusting — they could be trying to maneuver to get a good shot at planting a knife in your back.) “

Shoot them?
I live in Texas and I hate what that evil slimy POS is doing but Good Lord this isn’t a game.
What do you think would happen if a member of the Texas guard shot a federal agent?

seriously what do you think would happen?

I was ordered to secure the border against invasion using reasonable force, persons claiming to be federal agents tried to prevent me; as Section 4 of Article 4 of the US Constitution requires the federal government to protect against invasions we knew that these were not actually federal agents — or, if they were, then by their actions in attempting to prevent us from securing the border they revealed themselves to be guilty of Treason by aiding and abetting the invaders.

seriously what do you think would happen?

It'd set off a chain to a political bomb in DC — one that could easily destroy the open-borders crowd.

I don’t think Governor Mumbles has done anything but yap. And, being the dim bulb that he is he is slow to realize that has gotten him nowhere. It does appease the Perry faithful, though.

Good idea. O does this sort of thing against the people and their representatives, so the states ought to do it against him.

Then call out the National Guard and force Obama’s hand.

To be fair to Perry, he *has* already called out and deployed the purely state force, the Texas State Guard. It’s the National Guard that has Federal entanglements.

See my last post - he has deployed the Texas State Guard which is separate from the Fed-entangled National Guard.
