Eric Holder-The Laws ARE Being Enforced, You Racist: Attorney General Eric Holder insists that, despite having lost all control over who comes into our country, the laws are still there. You can’t see them, but they’re there. Trust us.

“Yes, the immigration laws are being enforced,” Holder told ABC’s This Week Sunday, calling the current flood of illegal immigrants an “extraordinary situation”  (but then, most invasions are).

“Let me just say this: Our immigration laws are broken,” Holder said. “It’s why we need comprehensive immigration reform.”

Do you know how laws are broken, Mr. Holder? When people break them. When they go ahead and commit whatever crime benefits them, acting as if the laws aren’t even there. You should know all about that, Mr. Holder.

Do you know how to stop laws from being broken, sir? Enforce the law.

But then again, you probably don’t have time to do your job, because of all the racism.

“There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me [and] directed at the president,” Holder told ABC.

“You know, people talking about taking their country back. … There’s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there’s a racial animus.”

You know, that race card is getting rather raggedy. Maybe you should talk with black Americans (who are disproportionally suffering under Obama’s policies) about why you’re standing up for illegal immigrants instead of your own citizens. Unless, because they’re fed up with your lawlessness, they’re suddenly racists, too.

Open borders– no laughing matter:  As much as our president treats the whole border crisis thing as one big hilarious joke, some of us aren’t laughing…because a wide-open border in a lawless land is a very dangerous thing.

After his visit to the HHS housing facility at Fort Sill on Saturday, Congressman Jim Bridenstine confirmed that human traffickers see the unaccompanied children as targets.

“There have been cases of people who have attempted to be sponsors actually being identified as associated with trafficking organizations. Not only the official, but the contractor as well indicated that that has happened, but they didn’t know how many times,” Bridenstine said.

Over 40% of the federal crimes documented by the Justice Department in fiscal 2013 took place in the five U.S. court districts (out of the total of 94 U.S. court districts) that sit on the U.S.-Mexico border. CNS News reports that those same five districts also had the largest number of convictions for federal crimes.

And what about those criminals we actually deport? Ask the sheriff in Parker County, Texas, where they just arrested an illegal immigrant who’s been deported four times…and now the man is back in the country, robbing people’s homes and sexually-molesting 9-year old girls.

But don’t worry…the immigration laws are being enforced. Eric Holder said so. Everyone feeling safer yet?

Rick Perry slams Rand Paul’s foreign policy: Obama’s vast collection of failures provides ample opportunities for 2016 challengers to come up with better solutions.

Texas Governor Rick Perry seized the moment to call out not only Obama’s foreign policy failures, but Rand Paul’s “isolationism” approach with Islamic terror in Iraq, saying “Paul’s brand of isolationism (or whatever term he prefers) would compound the threat of terrorism even further.”

In an op-ed in the Washington Post, Perry said that our unsecured border makes foreign threats a present danger:

“This represents a real threat to our national security — to which Paul seems curiously blind — because any of these passport carriers can simply buy a plane ticket and show up in the United States without even a visa.”

“In the face of the advancement of the Islamic State, Paul and others suggest the best approach to this 21st-century threat is to do next to nothing,” according to Perry. “I personally don’t believe in a wait-and-see foreign policy for the United States. Neither would Reagan.”

Looks like Perry has drawn a red-line of his own. As our war-weary populace seems to trend toward “non-interventionism,” a more traditional GOP candidate must frame his foreign policy through domestic priorities; If Perry wants to win this fight, he’s got to make the case that confronting ISIS (or other foreign threats) is necessary to defend our own homeland.
UPDATE: Rand Paul shot back in the battle of op-eds with a sharply-worded response to Perry in Politico:
“I support continuing our assistance to the government of Iraq, which include armaments and intelligence. I support using advanced technology to prevent ISIS from becoming a threat. I also want to stop sending U.S. aid and arms to Islamic rebels in Syria who are allied with ISIS, something Perry doesn’t even address. I would argue that if anything, my ideas for this crisis are both stronger, and not rooted simply in bluster.If the governor continues to insist that these proposals mean I’m somehow “ignoring ISIS,” I’ll make it my personal policy to ignore Rick Perry’s opinions.”
If “ignoring” means a prolonged and public battle in the opinion pages, get your popcorn now, folks. 2016, here we come.

Obama’s Press Sec. thinks he’s “Absolutely” the most transparent president. Like ever: Headline or punchline? President Obama is “absolutely” the most transparent president in history.

Well, that’s what White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Sunday, after a dozen top journalists’ groups sent a letter to the White House complaining about the administration’s policies toward the media.

The letter accuses Obama’s bureaucracy of “politically driven suppression of news and information about federal agencies,” and asks that an ombudsman be created to enforce transparency.

“There are a number of steps that we’ve taken to give people greater insight into what’s happening at the White House,” Earnest told CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”
But none of those steps include actually transparency, Mr. Earnest. Remember that recent AP Study that called you the least transparent administration in recent history? Because you all censored or denied more than a third of all information requests from the media?
Unless, by “most transparent president in history,” you mean we can see right through him and his excuses…in which case, yes.  Absolutely.
