I did say Governor. That’s not Federal. Oops.

You did answer my question on the question of treason. I wrongly assumed you were speaking of the US Constitution. Still to make such charge toward a US employee may first require secession (which may indeed become a necessity).

I was checking and rechecking and couldn't understand what I was saying wrong.
Sorry I wasn't clear about my post. I've been doing tons of research while also
working. Taking a break will help. I also misspoke about the Governor's role which
was pointed out to me just a few posts back.

The first authority of invasion comes under the Federal government, but since the POTUS
claims it's not an invasion the authority or protection goes to the state. States have
the higher right over any law or executive order that the POTUS or Congress passes or signs
if it in any way goes against the Supreme power of the Constitution. Always in every case
any unconstitutional law or executive order is null and void.

In this case the Oath of office is being ignored and Obama has failed in his
duty to perform his duty by the Oath he swore. Congress "not the Governor" has a
duty to bypass the POTUS and act to protect our borders. When Congress or "House" also
fails in it's duties then the last defense is the State and it's elected leaders.

Both houses of Congress have failed in their duty right along with the POTUS.
We are at a pinnacle of power where confusion has set in. Nobody ever dreamed that
the powers given to the states would need to be enacted and I doubt that one single
elected state representative even dreamed they would be in this situation.
This inaction historically might be known as "The great Pause" if they do not
act quickly and our leaders get their bearings ironed out.

Perry has been the only one determined to act, even though slightly and hesitant.

My take on Perry is that he was not sure what he could actually do under the US Constitution and may have finally just taken the reins, damn the consequences. He may have also been trying to pressure nobama to do the National Guard thing because of cost (improper cost to Texas) and finally had to move on his own.

Do you think this could lead to some territorial pissin contest with nobama and Holder? I suspect not, nobama will be off to some other issue like EO for the fags.

Seems to me a special “RED” group could go south of the border, blow a few railway lines and roads to kingdom come - that atleast would slow down the influx of illegals - ON THEIR SIDE!

If Perry can stop them at the River, Mexico will cut the illegal’s travel because they don’t want them either and its unlikely the coyotes will give free return trips back to Central America.

Actually this “chillrin” thing was a sham by nobama and the MSM. 90% of them looked more like the guys you see hanging out at Home Depot ready to mow your yard or pour concrete.

Or...commit crimes and go unpunished!

Isn't it odd that 0 is importing so many 15 - 24 year old males?

What is actually happening gives Perry the authority to bypass both the House and POTUS.
I hope he's talking to Constitutional scholars on what to do, and like I said
previously, I doubt any elected official thought they would be in this position.

Perry may be going through the consulting phase to see what his options are.
Sending 1k troops would be testing the waters. Sending 20k NG troops would be
demonstrating his US Constitutional authority brought on by the inactions of the Federal.

Bottom line is that in this narrow spectrum concerning the border whatever action
is taken cannot be construed as a challenge to the US Constitution since it's
the Supreme power of the US Constitution that gives it to him, (Governor).

The Framers set up lines of defense to protect other states from being invaded
with people they didn't want. Aka, bringing in the Kings men to overthrow
the current elected Government and by using it's own laws, destroying the country
one state at a time. Those possibilities would allow the Kings men to
register in every state and elect their own in each state. There stands the
immigration authority which is ONLY granted to the Congress and Senate and only
by a majority vote. One man, "Obama" cannot alone bring in the kings men to
give itself King authority over both Houses, Period.

Sheesh Jane....listened to that and just seems one more nail in the coffin. Questions abound what do we do now! and then we learn something else and it’s just multiplying!

Congress is all but dead with a few whimpers here and there....never thought I’d say this but how much longer for all americans to rise? It’s going to take more than poster by a few good men and woman...it’s going to take a population with a will to rise and be heard.........do you see it? Do you hear it? ....Still too many in the dark.

Zack Interview-Security on the border between USA and Mexico

Thank you, GOPJ, yes, I watched that video yesterday after seeing the thread Vince Ferrer posted here:

[26yr Border Patrol Veteran] Zack Interview-Security on the border between USA and Mexico and in fact, I watched it a couple of times to let it sink in.

Then today I noticed that Buckeye Texan had taken great pains to transcribe the entire video. Reading the transcript increases the impact of Zack Taylor's comments that much more. Thanks Buckeye Texan! :)

Transcript: Retired Border Patrol Officer Zach Taylor explains surge of illegals on U.S. border posted by BuckeyeTexan

Thank you GOPJ for mentioning the video here because I think everyone needs to see it.

It is chilling to hear a retired Border Patrol agent comment on the sad truths we face today. I believe him, and respect that man greatly for his honesty in explaining what has happened from the perspective of someone who has been watching our borders for over two decades. Ret. Border Patrol Officer Taylor spoke from his heart, from his experience and he gave the public what I believe is an accurate in-depth analysis of the serious trouble this country is in.

For those who live in parts of the country where the sudden influx of illegal immigrants has gone unnoticed, understand that the entire country will be affected. We will all feel the pinch. Be sure to read the linked .PDF file found on the Florida Dept. of Health's website posted below in something I posted yesterday:

Infectious diseases from people simply visiting here was already a problem. Cases of whooping cough and tuberculosis have increased in the past ten years according to the CDC.

Then there's this alarming letter written by the Florida State Surgeon General:

Florida State Surgeon General Letter to HHS Regarding Unaccompanied Children

Florida Department of Health ^ | July 18, 2014 | Dr. John H. Armstrong
posted by Politico2isBack

For full impact, or even to verify for yourself that it's an authentic, urgent request, you might want to take a look at the letter still posted as a one page .PDF file on the Florida Department of Health's website.

Thank you for consolidating this info - for future reference. What worries me (and I’m 64, so unable to set off down south to really get involved), is that so many of us and others like us won’t or can’t, for various reasons, get off our butts and physically do SOMETHING about this. Thanks to the internet and texting and Facebook too many have become complacent. If this situation had manifested 40 years ago I doubt that it would have been allowed to go on this long. The people would have taken whatever means necessary to stop it - and not from the comfort of their living rooms.
This is Obama’s legacy. He counted on the lazy and selfish generation that put him in the Whitehouse. He still depends on the same group to sit back and watch our country self destruct as if they were watching an episode on tv. It’s not just us versus Obama. People better wake the hell up.

There is a multitude of young guys in South America that yearn to come to the USA. Don’t know if this current flood is actually nobama’s “importing” as much as it his giving them a wink and a nod, which is all it takes to get them heading our way.

The reason so many seem to be criminal is that the criminal element is naturally more aggressive and the first to show up at half a chance. They’ll still be among your yard mowers, just they’ll steal anything not tied down (part of the Patron/Peasant mentality) and will use the temp job as an opportunity to case the joint.

In the long run we may be better off to let those that will actually work at menial jobs in and in exchange return our residing lazy welfare class back to Mother Africa.

“Have you considered the fact you might live to be 95?”

Yes I have, and I hope to live to that ripe old age and beyond. Running 20+ miles a week, I’m physically more fit than a lot of women out there HALF my age. Mentally — starting to droop a little.
My secretarial skills would have little value down there. I don’t own a gun, nor do I plan to. I like my life right now - it’s safe - at the moment. But I am increasingly feeling the need TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS, as long as it doesn’t don’t get me arrested and thrown in the klink for the night.

I had the worst feeling of dread and doom, like a premonition, when I watched Obama’s 2009 inauguration. This whole situation scares me. Doing nothing about it scares me. 2.5 more years of this crazy shit is frightening.

My FR name should be 5catsandachicken.

To: bd476; everyone
There are two issues here: the invasion of illegal alien kids, which is a DIVERSION, understand that first and foremost. The REAL ISSUE is oboma’s full cooperation with and encouragement of the enemies of this country to cross the border without restraint i.e. the Russian Mafia, South American & Mexican drug cartel thugs who are bringing disease into this country, jihad muslim terrorists, to name a few. According to the Patrol Agent in this damning 14 minute youtube video, www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnkSXosZhic, they are coming into this country to set up their infrastructure, a foothold in this country, and then they individually will take part in the destruction of this country, our economic, school, hospital systems, assisting oboma in making of his plan to “fundamentally change” this country into a socialist/communist/marxist utopian reality, the likes of Cuba, Venequela, North Korea. THIS IS THE REAL STORY. We are being taken down by a leftist pResident, with the help of outside sources. AND NO ONE IS DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT..NOT THE CONGRESS, NOR THE MILITARY, OR EVERN THE GOVERNORS OF BORDER STATES. Perry's dog & pony show with the TX NG is useless the NG can do more than “deter & refer.” We're talking about an invasion of enemies into our country, and Perry's hired babysitters to watch over the kids,etc! This is insane! The border has to be closed down and manned by soldiers with fire power. We're dealing with killers here. Watch this video..pass it on to everyone you know, send it to Drudge, Rush, Mark Levin, Fox News, the Kelly File/Megyn Kelly, Greta VanSusteren, Cavuto, Laura Ingraham. I already have. HAVE YOU???? This is for real,folks, this country is at war,and it will be up to us to ALERT everyone we know of the REAL, FULL THREAT of this invasion. No more snarky commentary on FR...it's time for action. Wathch this video, and start passing it on NOW. Send the link to the politicians...they MUST WAKE UP NOW and DO SOMETHING, or we WILL lose this country.
