Bridenstine: I couldn't get in to see illegal minors at Fort Sill (OK Rep)
NewsOK ^ | July 2, 2014

Posted on 07/02/2014 3:42:14 PM PDT by SMGFan

Rep. Jim Bridenstine, R-Tulsa, said he was denied access Tuesday to the Fort Sill facility housing unaccompanied minors who have illegally crossed the U.S. border.

Bridenstine made a visit to the Health and Human Services Department facility at the U.S. Army post in southwestern Oklahoma and was told he couldn’t enter and should email an HHS official to make an appointment. He was told July 21 would be the earliest date he could visit.

Gov. Mary Fallin and Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, visited the facility on June 20.

Bridenstine said, “There is no excuse for denying a federal representative from Oklahoma access to a federal facility in Oklahoma where unaccompanied children are being held.

He’ll get to see them right after the Fed is audited and we see the gold in Ft.Knox.

Savage covered medical workers down in Texas who were relieved of their phones and threatened with their jobs if they reported what they were seeing, kids with heads full of mega-lice on PUBLIC buses. Scabies, influenze, tuberculosis.

This is a criminal invasion!

Sounds like they didn't want an ad hoc, unannounced visit. They need to "sanitize" the place before they have a visit by a Congressman.

He should be sure to wear a head to toe Hazmat suit with gloves and footies. Get all your shots as though you were going into the Amazon Rain Forest, because in a sense you are!

He'll get to see them right after the Lerner emails are recovered.

I don’t think he tried hard enough.

All he had to do was inform the jackboots, they have no authority to restrict him, and walk on by.

Then if they physically restrain him, we have a different stroy.

Another Congressman with old, outdated notions.

He thinks he and congress still matter.

Doesn’t realize we are now a dictatorship run by a dope addled, half-black, racist tyrant
carrying a bushel of chips on his shoulder.

Posters on other threads here are criticizing Congressman Bridenstine for not blasting his way into the facility anyway.

BTW, he is my congressman and he is dam* near perfect. But because he let himself be blocked from entering, to some here he is a RINO or a weakling.

If his FR critics knew him, they would be afraid to insinuate either of those two charges.

The wimps.

I heard him interviewed on Tom Sullivan’s radio show. Tom asked him something to the effect of “what are you going to do about it” and the usual stream of nothingburgerness came out.

The remedy for the lawlessness of the executive branch is either the power of the purse (defund things) or impeachment. The GOP is afraid to say the word much less do it.

IF they win the Senate and IF they develop the fortitude to impeach Obama, I truly shudder to think about the damage that will have been done by that point. Boehner, Cantor, McConnell, McCain and the rest will be remembered by history (if our nation survives) as the Congress that sat by with their thumbs in their nether regions while a tyrant set fire to the United States.

Aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats and their ideological litters continue occupation of Capital Beltway University campus buildings. The occupation last occurred during the entire eight years of the Clinton Administration. Authorities intend to "wait it out" again.

Capital Beltway University giant campus occupation is in sixth year.. authorities still refuse to act.

Occupiers refuse Congressman access to facility housing unaccompanied minor (illegal) immigrants. The Congressman was there to investigate reports of illicit human trafficking involving minors. Republican leadership flummoxed, likely to blame Tea Party.

The old-fashioned concept of an independent congressman is no longer operative in the USSA.

Remember, comrades: A police state is a SAFE state!

If so, he will be back tomorrow and he’ll go right in.

If not, he’s another wimp.

I watched the Ayers-Kelly dialogue with great interest. Obviously, Ayers and his comrades soon figured out that bombs were less effective (especially P.R.-wise), compared to burrowing into the govt and .edu.

Ayers and his comrades have correctly learned that much more damage could be done to the great evil Amerikkkan Empire (in their eyes)by working from the inside, and every day, pouring poison on the very roots of the USA.

So much more damage than unpopular pin-prick bombs.

They won the “long march through the institutions” and they won. Or have nearly won, pulling off a virtual coup against the Constitution, with .gov and .edu aided and abetted by the fellow travelers in the Mainstream Media, ABCNNBCBS and the WPNYTLAT.

Precisely. Abe agrees. But says the fault is ours. Abe will explain from "the other side."

You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.

It’s time for the citizens and media of OK to mass in front of this facility then storm it with video cameras in hand.

“Bridenstine made a visit to the Health and Human Services Department facility at the U.S. Army post in southwestern Oklahoma and was told he couldn’t enter and should email an HHS official to make an appointment.

Excuse me?!? If I were him I would say “The only appointment I am making is an appointment to subpoena you to appear before a Congressional committee, if you don’t allow me access today.”

That’s because the few “minors” they have in custody need to be shifted around the country for photo ops with the “media”. The ‘RATS prop up “the churldren” right in front of the news cameras like a cardboard box full of puppies or kittens out in front of Walmart. Hell, even Pelosi wanted to take a puppy home with her when she went down to the border last week to do a ‘RAT photo op with “the churldren”. Most of the mob invading the country right now are young adults, gangbangers. Gangstahs!

I’m curious. Can a congressman walk into ANY federal facility and automatically be given access?

That has been my experience.

They don’t usually throw their weight around and make arrangements ahead of time.

BUT!

These flat foots certainly don’t have the authority to restrict him.

Quite the smack-down, Jim. Your title means nothing to totalitarians or their brownshirt minions. Be thankful you left with your life. RESIGN and know that you did your very best.

You should do some research on him before you say something like that.

Really.

I mean, you know how to do research. Why not?

I hope OK has updated and reviewed their quarantine protocols for any infectious, third-world diseases that might mysteriously show up within their borders.

Look, it’s simple. He’s a congressman. From timidity or whatever, he left when some goon said “Boo” to him.

Now he’s had 24 hours to pull up his big boy pants, look in the mirror, see a real member of congress, and go back there with camera crews in tow, and DARE them to bar his path.

He will, or he won’t. And then we’ll know if he’s a man, or a mouse.
