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.
Remember this? America has been arrogant, dismissive and derisive…
Now, who is being arrogant and dismissive? This administration and president refused the assistance of 13 nations in the first 2 weeks of this oil spill. Other nations, including even the UN, stepped forward and offered their equipment and expertize in this catastrophe. They were rebuffed and sent away. Not only did the Netherlands, Canada, France and Norway offer to help us but Croatia, for cryin’ out loud!
And we said “No thanks. We’ll handle things.”
A Belgian group–DEME– contends it can clean up the oil in three to four months with specialty vessel and equipment, rather than an estimated nine months if done only by the U.S. The article noted there are no more than 5 or 6 of those ships in the world and the top specialist players are the two Belgian companies– DEME and De Nul – and their Dutch competitors.
The U.S. does not have the similar technology and vessel to accomplish the cleanup task because those ships would cost twice as much to build in the U.S. than in the Far East. The article further criticizes this “great technological delay” is a direct consequence of the Jones Act.
Our fellow Americans who live and depend on the gulf for their livelihoods are being sacrificed because this president is too arrogant, too all-knowing to accept the help and expertise offered by nations with the technology to fix this problem. Our wetlands, beaches and precious creatures are dying at the expense of this egomaniac in the oval office.
But we all know that no one is as smart as he is. No one is as omnipotent as the Great Obama:
If this is not some kind of malfeasance or misfeasance in office, I don’t know what is. But this behavior qualifies for both, as far as I understand the definitions. And if what he’s doing doesn’t qualify as “high crimes and misdemeanors” against this nation, our land and people, then I’m a Chinese astronaut… a really, really pissed off Chinese astronaut.
