Open thread: Obama to deliver statement at 6:45 ET feigning interest in border crisis

posted at 6:01 pm on July 9, 2014 by Allahpundit

He’s busy with fundraisers today and probably bowling or miniature golf or something, but he’s going to squeeze in a few brief remarks on why he’s not much interested in summarily deporting the hundreds of thousands of illegals who are on their way from Central America.

You ready? The long-awaited tarmac handshake with Perry is already on the books:

He made a gesture of bipartisan comity today too ahead of his visit to the deep red state of Texas, saying of Republicans, “I don’t think they’re all terrible people. I think they love their families.” So we’ve got that going for us. Expect his statement to focus less on security measures to stop the flow of young illegals and more on framing this as a “humanitarian crisis,” an important point to drill into the public when you know you’ll eventually be asking them to accept the fact that most of these kids are now here to stay. Even John McCain knows that.

While we wait, here’s Glenn Beck reiterating his plan to bring supplies to the border for the kids who are coming across. Quote: “The way we will lose is by appearing to be something that we’re not, by appearing to be hateful people that don’t care about children. That’s how we lose.”

’06:

Pat Buchanan: Mexico recapturing U.S. lands?

In his new book, ‘State of Emergency,’ the conservative commentator calls for sweeping reform of immigration policies.

Chapter 2. The Invasion
Will the American Southwest become a giant Kosovo, a part of the nation separated from the rest by language, ethnicity, history and culture, to be reabsorbed in all but name by Mexico from whom we took these lands in the time of Jackson and Polk? Chicano chauvinists and Mexican agents have made clear their intent to take back through demography and culture what their ancestors lost through war.

Chapter 3. Coming to America
High among the [costs of immigration] is the appearance among us of diseases that never before afflicted us and the sudden reappearance of contagious diseases that researchers and doctors had eradicated long ago. Malaria, polio, hepatitis, tuberculosis and such rarities of the Third World as dengue fever, Chagas’ Disease and leprosy are surfacing here…. Bedbugs have invaded the United States for the first time in 50 years, with 28 states reporting recent infestations.

Chapter 6. Roots of Paralysis
The Bush plan is economic treason against the American worker. That “civil rights leaders” are silent about the dispossession of the black working class, that unions are not marching to denounce this sellout of blue-collar and white-collar America, only tells us that the amorality of the transnational corporation has infected both. Solidarity be damned, it is all about money now.

Chapter 7. A Grudge Against the Gringo
In “El Plan [de Aztlan],” “Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to foreign Europeans. We do not recognize capricious frontiers on the bronze continent.” The MEChA slogan is “Por la Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada,” which translates, “For the race, everything. Outside of the race, nothing.” The MEChA slogan seems a conscious echo of the Fascist slogan of Mussolini: “Everything for the state, nothing outside the state, nothing above the state.”

Chapter 8. The Aztlan Plot
This [Aztlan Plot] aims directly at a reannexation of the Southwest, not militarily, but ethnically, linguistically and culturally through the transfer of millions of Mexicans into the United States and a migration of “Anglos” out of the lands Mexico lost in 1848. In California, the project is well advanced.

Stated bluntly, the Aztlan Strategy entails the end of the United States as a sovereign, self-sufficient, independent republic, the passing away of the American nation. They are coming to conquer us.

Chapter 13. Last Chance
Concerned about his legacy, George W. Bush may yet live to see his name entered into the history of his country as the president who lost the American Southwest that James K. Polk won for the United States.

If we do not solve our civilizational crisis — a disintegrating culture, dying populations, and invasions unresisted — the children born in 2006 will witness in their lifetimes the death of the West. In our hearts we know what must be done. We must stop the invasion. But do our leaders have the vision and will to do it?

davidk on July 9, 2014 at 9:06 PM

In the spring of 1970 the reliance on the strategies concluded in the “taking” of land, which ultimately became the site for a new park—Chicano Park. Through this action, “the myth of Aztlán metamorphosed to reality” on a piece of land in San Diego’s oldest barrio, Barrio Logan. On April 22, 1970, shortly after discovering bulldozers on the property which was to be converted into a parking lot and headquarters for the California Highway Patrol, the residents of the barrio, as Delgado has noted:” …gathered at the site to challenge the construction crew. At nearby high schools and colleges, students left class to join demonstrations. ”

Mexico is a friend of America. Mexico is our neighbor. And we want our neighbors to succeed. We want our neighbors to do well…. And that’s why it’s so important for us to tear down barriers and walls that might separate Mexico from the United States.

— President George W. Bush, address to the Hispanic Chamber
of Commerce, Albuquerque, New Mexico, August 15, 2001

While American troops engage al-Qaeda terrorist cells in far-flung battlefields across Asia and our military leadership prepares for a Gulf War encore against Iraq, our “friend” and “neighbor” to the south is relentlessly invading our homeland. The Mexican government and radical “Chicano” groups in this country are pursuing the dream of La Reconquista — the “re-conquest” of the southwestern United States.

The provocative term “reoccupation” was not coined by an anti-immigration activist. Rather, it was used in an official study published by the Mexican government’s National Council on Population (Conapo). Mendel writes: “The ‘reoccupation’ of this territory has been slow but steady, and the number of immigrants is growing every year.” Citing Conapo’s findings, Mendel predicts that during the six-year reign of incumbent Mexican President Vicente Fox, ending in 2006, “two million Mexicans will enter the United States at the rate of approximately 380,000 per year.”

By publishing the Conapo study, the Mexican government has formally embraced the concept of “demographic warfare” — re-conquering the southwestern United States through unchecked illegal immigration. But it has long been an open secret that Mexico takes advantage of our porous southern border to export its “surplus poverty” and re-impose control over our southwest.

davidk on July 9, 2014 at 9:14 PM

But columnist Carlos Loret de Mola most clearly explained Mexico’s “demographic warfare” strategy 20 years ago in Excelsior (the Mexican equivalent of the New York Times). In an essay entitled “The Great Invasion: Mexico Recovers Its Own,” Loret described the strategy in brutally candid terms:

A peaceful mass of people … carries out slowly and patiently an unstoppable invasion, the most important in human history. You cannot give me a similar example of such a large migratory wave by an ant-like multitude, stubborn, unarmed, and carried on in the face of the most powerful and best-armed nation on earth…. [Neither] barbed-wire fences, nor aggressive border guards, nor campaigns, nor laws, nor police raids against the undocumented, have stopped this movement of the masses that is unprecedented in any part of the world.

This migrant invasion, continues Loret, “seems to be slowly returning [the southwestern United States] to the jurisdiction of Mexico without the firing of a single shot, nor requiring the least diplomatic action, by means of a steady, spontaneous, and uninterrupted occupation.” The effects of Mexico’s immigration invasion were even then visible in Los Angeles, which Loret archly referred to as “the second largest Mexican city in the world.”

May 2008

McCain to attend convention of ‘reconquista’ group: “Sen. John McCain… will attend the national convention of La Raza [The Race], a radical Hispanic lobby tied to the movement to reconquer the Southwestern U.S. that was part of Mexico before the Mexican-American War that ended in 1848. The convention will be held in San Diego July 14.”

Brown Berets de Aztlan are recruiting and forming new chapters : “‘The Brown Berets de Aztlan have undertaken an active campaign to recruit more soldiers and form new chapters throughout Aztlan,’ said Chairman David Rico yesterday. ‘We will be having a series of presentations throughout the Southwest starting in San Diego on May 8, 2008.’” See The Merging of the Americas in a New Global Order

It’ll be hilarious when Lee and the other bright lights of the CBC are thrown out in primaries in favor of Mexican-Americans. It will be impossible to re-gerrymander the districts to favor blacks but disfavor Latinos.

Dallas, Texas

Dallas Co. Commissioner Mike Cantrell (The only republican on the council) responding to Judge Jenkins volunteering Dallas Co. to act as the New Border for Texas/Mexico.

“There will be tens of thousands processed through these three centers and the majority of the $3.7 Billion asked for by Obama will not be spent securing the border but building permanent housing,medical treatment,lawyers and judges in the immigration courts, hiring ESL teachers…Nobody is telling Dallas citizens the plans for these centers or the numbers involved…”

Judge Jenkins also has no legal authority to do this since no emergency has officially been declared.

If anybody sees AnnoyingLittleTwerp tonight, please warn her that ILLEGAL Invaders are heading to her neck of the woods.

While the nation’s spotlight is on the thousands of children illegally entering the United States, Littlefield has been tapped to potentially house the growing number of immigrant detainees.

Thousands of undocumented children are being crammed into Texas military bases for processing while the government searches for a more permanent solution. The Bill Clayton Detention Center may be it.

The West Texas town officials have been in talks with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for about two years and touched base with the federal department last week, Littlefield City Manager Mike Arismendez said.

ICE representatives toured the former prison last year, and with the help of U.S. Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Lubbock, Arismendez hopes to get the facility up and running again.

The other thing spreading them all over the country is going to do, as I think others have said, is spread any contagious medical conditions and diseases they might have, all over the nation.

That’s how epidemics capable of killing half the country, are started.

Yours was the first mention of the Invaders being sent to Littlefield on this thread, maables.

I saw the announcement on FreeRepublic.com at about the same time as your post.

If the 2 of you get together, I’m willing to bet that you can successfully scare the ILLEGALs out of your area.

ASKING THE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS: Andrew Klavan: Is Obama Just A Hapless Putz? “Many people on the right think Obama is an Evil Leftist Genius. Not me. I think he is a hapless putz. I think his ideas are all wrong, his applications of his ideas is incompetent, and the chaos that he causes with his wrongness and incompetence will not lead in the direction he thinks it will. I think when the history of the 21st century is written, Obama will not merit more than a single line. Even the fact that he was the first black president may come to seem irrelevant in a couple of decades. In which case, he will not merit any line at all.”

Yup.

Obama is just playing the hapless putz role. He’s orchestrated all of this, and is secretly pulling the strings to see that it’s not stopped before completion.

All part of the “fundamental transformation”.

Labeling him as just a hapless putz, give him a pass for setting all of it up in the first place. It may never be proven, but the border patrol agents on the ground at the border could see it was intentional from the very start of it.

“HOUSTON (AP) — The city council of a Houston suburb has passed a resolution saying the city will not cooperate with any federal request to house immigrant children who are in the country illegally.

The League City council voted 6-2 to adopt the resolution Tuesday night. It refuses any request from the federal government to set up detention or processing centers there, citing unspecified “health concerns.”

The city of more than 90,000 residents is situated 25 miles southeast of Houston.

Earlier Tuesday, a Houston school district spokeswoman said federal officials toured a vacant middle school as a possible site to house immigrant children caught crossing the border. District spokeswoman

Sheleah Reed says the visit to Terrell Middle School is a preliminary step in case federal officials want a local shelter for immigrant children…”

I’m not going to hold my breath either.

But if the (R)’s want to exercise their only remaining Constitutional tool remaining, they need to do so whenever Obama comes asking for more funds, of any kind. They need to tell him to get bent.

I want them to start defunding all sorts of things, the IRS and EPA being the first. But the (R)’s don’t have the balls to do that. I doubt they have the balls with the $3.7 Billion either.

I’m sure the GOPe Rollover Caucus will do what they do best.
