I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
It’s also the presidents job to protect America from aggressors and invasion, both foreign and domestic. In Arizona, he’s not really doing that job when you consider that we have land in this state that are basically off-limits to American citizens due to dangerous drug and human smuggling.
The government “encourages visitors to use public lands north of interstate 8” to avoid possibly armed criminals in OUR desert! We have already surrendered hundreds of miles of Arizona desert to Mexican criminals. Why not just move the border that far north and give it back to Mexico, for cryin’ out loud? As Governor Jan has said, we are basically surrendering portions of our state to another nation.
We’ve asked for support and national guard and for the most part, we have been ignored. The president walked as fast past Governor Perry (Texas) in an obvious snub, as he could last month when he flew in for a fund raiser. He has refused to talk to him or come down and visit the border states for himself.
The federal government is sending 525 guardsmen to the Arizona border but they can do very little: observe and report to the border patrol, period. In some instances it takes the patrol 30 to 60 minutes or more to arrive at a site and by then, the illegals are gone. Most of these roads in the desert are not much more than foot paths and almost none are paved which makes it a bit difficult for the patrols to react quickly.
We are being invaded and seceding our lands while it’s the presidents responsibility to protect and defend this nation. He’s not doing that. In fact, instead of taking action against this, he is taking ARIZONA and one of our sheriffs to court!
Obama’s confused if he can’t figure out that American citizens are not the enemy. And his attorney general needs to be replaced if it’s more important to sue Sheriff Joe and the state of Arizona while he lets Black Panthers walk.
Are we going to wait until terrorists make their way into this nation via the Arizona desert and commit something unspeakable before this administration takes this seriously? How many more dead American ranchers will it take?
I think this could be an impeachable offense and I hope someone with the expertise is looking into it.

Obama and his entire faux “administration” are the ones that should be sued by evey family of a victim of a crime by an illegal. They are the ones responsible.

Well unfortunately don’t think they can be sued for that. I do think that he is preforming malfeasance in office, though, as well as Holder and Napolitano. I really think there could be impeachable offenses against Obama for his lack of action or at least lack of effective action.

The border is NOT more secure and resourced than it has ever been. Clearly Alan Bersin knows nothing of the Punitive Expedition or the Mexican Border Campaign which occurred 94 years ago and involved more than 100,000 National Guard and Regular Army troops. Unfortunately, most American citizens are also ignorant of this key moment in our history.
Here is a link to letters written by a National Guardsman on the Border exactly 94 years ago. Too bad our politicians are more interested in being politically correct than robustly defending the sovereignty of the United States.

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. I can’t agree with you more, either!
I’ve been to your site and was literally there for hours, reading. It’s a wonderful place and I sure hope others go there and read. You left us a hook with your wonderful link and after I got there, I was reeled in. What a great historical treasure it is!
Thank you again.
