Janet Napolitano claims border is safe, as families flee cartel violence
Examiner ^ | February 2, 2011 | Will Weissert

On Monday, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told a crowd at the University of Texas at El Paso that it is “inaccurate tostate, as too many have, that the border is overrun with violence and out of control.”

She continued: “This statement, often made only to score political points, is just plain wrong.”

Perhaps, Napolitano has not spoken to, nor ever heard of the Burns family in Brooks County, Texas, who have been forced to pack up and leave their 38,000 acre ranch because the area has become a war zone, thanks to the Mexican drug cartels and illegal aliens crossing on or near their property on a daily basis.

The Burns’ family home has been broken into, their land littered with garbage and the distinct sounds of gunfire can be heard from their front porch.

The ranch, which is located 60 miles from the Mexican border runs alongside Farm Road 755, which local law enforcement calls a “main smuggling corridor” for the cartels.

Or, perhaps she should have spoken to Texas Gov. Rick Perry before she said: "Let's stick with the facts and numbers when talking about where we are with the border.”

Janet has never been known for her veracity - not as Arizona's Governor nor as Secretary of Home Land Security. She is in fact your consummate political hack doing the bidding of the president, neither capable of defending the nation from our neighbor to the south.

Janet Napolitano is in fact a liar who is helping with Obama's blessing and Sheriff Dupnick, protecting the drug cartel and illegal aliens cross over into the U.S.A. unmolested by gangs who "bother" those mentioned.

Call your senators and congressmen to do something serious about the Border.

This is why she owns property right on the border and resides there without any security?

Clearly she has not even bothered to read the U.S. State Department’s own travel warnings page about Mexico. It just screams “out of control”.

Yeah... we should schedule a two week camping trip for that nut. Drop her off at the border with a tent and some food and tell her we’ll be back in a couple of weeks. Enjoy.

Janet Napolitano claims border is safe...

This fat loon is an embarrassment to our country...and a danger to the public at large. Granted, she is only a "figurehead" but she is just too stupid to keep her mouth shut. As bad or worse than Biden.

"This is why she owns property right on the border and resides there without any security?"

That's what I was thinking. If she wants to prove this BS, let her take a swing at it like her boss did in the gulf seafood oil crisis. Let JN and a couple of her gal-pals pull a camping trailer to the border and camp out for a couple of nights without a battalion of NG along for the ride.

Bet she'd be whistling a new tune when/if she got back.

WASHINGTON: Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Indians are sneaking into the United States across the Mexico border in what American authorities are saying is a sudden and unexpected spike in illegal immigration — from a country half way across the world which is said to be in the throes of an economic boom.

More than 1,600 Indians have been caught since the influx began in early 2010, while an undetermined number, perhaps thousands, are believed to have slipped through undetected, according to US border authorities cited in an account by the Center for Investigative Reporting and published by the Los Angeles Times on Sunday.

The report said Indians are now the largest group of immigrants other than Latin Americans being caught at the Southwest border. The influx reportedly is showing signs of accelerating: About 650 Indians were arrested in southern Texas in the last three months of 2010 alone. The “mysterious and rapidly growing human-smuggling pipelineis backing up court dockets, filling detention centers and triggering investigations,” the report added.

The Indians are said to be flying into Latin American and Central American countries such as Equador, Venezuela and Guatemala via Dubai before arriving on the Mexico-US border, where they cross the Rio Grande River and hole up in US border towns, where they are usually helped by fellow Indians. Mexican organized crime groups are also suspected of being involved either in running the operations or in charging groups tolls to pass through their territory.

Stupid Janet defends illegals and terrorists crossing the border---but she's going after American citizens w/ a vengeance.

THE COCKEYED WORLD OF OBAMA/INCOMPETANO: A VERY DISTURBING GOVT MINDSET Obama/Incompetano pulled out all the stops to go after American "extremists" but seem "unable" to go after bombers and terrorists.

Keep in mind, Americans look at savage Mexican drug cartels, the undie bomber and Shazad with fear and trepidation, and demand justice. Ohaha/Incompetano, Holder, Emanuel, Axelrod, Soros and that bunch, look at them with kindness and understanding, b/c they are out to "get" those evil Americans.

OHAHA/DHS PROFILES AMERICANS--HATRED OF AMERICANS SPEWS FORTH No more proof is needed than Obama/Incompetano's profiling Americans as “rightwing extremists.”

On April 7, 2009, their hatred of Americans spewed full force as DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis sent out a nationwide alert to US L/E to act against "evil" conservatives. DHS identified “rightwing extremists” as a "danger" and defined “rightwing extremists” in a footnote, as follows.

OBAMA/INCOMPETANO ORDER L/E TO SUPPRESS AND DESTROY AMERICANS. EXCERPT DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis to L/E: "Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration."

DHS later said that the report was not an attempt to squash First Amendment Rights for conservatives----only "hate groups"---- but, there was NO attempt to exempt anyone from these broad generalizations. Obama/Incompetano's report paints EVERY ASPECT OF AMERICAN CONSERVATISM as "suspect."

This is indicative of a very disturbing government mindset. Obama/Incompetano's documented hatred of Americans, and their orders to L/E to surveil and supress Americans......contrasts sharply with their kid glove handling of drug lords, savages, and terrorists bent on violence and destruction.

The Burns family was forced to pack up and leave their ranch located 60 miles from the Mexican border alongside Farm Road 755, which local law enforcement calls a “main smuggling corridor” for the savage Mexican drug cartels.

Keep in mind the Mexican govt is fomenting the drug violence in order to: (1) get billions of dollars in US assistance, and, (2) to help their populations flee over the border claiming they are victims of violence and need "asylum".......asylum gets illegals thousands of dollars in SS funds.

Mexico's using the Mideast Playbook very effectively----extorting billions using the well-worn Mideast Scam. Federales are getting rich on US dollars, hitting all the tried-and-true Mideast buttons:

(1) plotting to become a ward of the US;

(2) faking victimization;

(3) secretly revving up internal conflicts;

(4) play-acting the ignoramus;

(5) claiming they can't "control" their enemies without US money;

(6) organizing voting blocs----exchanging votes for US cash.

The Burns family better watch out that mexicans don't takeover their land using ages-old Bible history as an excuse.
