Meanwhile, if you listen closely to the Obama Administration you’d think that white folks in Arizona are standing on the street corners of Phoenix and elsewhere in Arizona, dressed in white sheets and burning crosses while calling for the death of all Mexicans. How else can you explain Obama’s lawsuit against the State of Arizona and the idiotic calls by some states and local jurisdictions to boycott Arizona over its passage of a law that merely mirrors federal law? Why are the media playing this up as racist, yet they ignore King Samir Shabazz, the Philadephia Black Panther leader, as he openly calls for the assassination of people simply because of their skin color. Wasn’t the election of Obama supposed to eliminate the racial divide in America? Seems to me that it’s done nothing but create an ever larger chasm with those who share his skin color and political views spurring all of this division. I’d like to hear from the nation’s two biggest race pimps — the Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton — on this one.
This is no longer a matter of politics but a military matter. Congress has the authority and the obligation to immediately declare war on Mexico and allow the US military to secure our southern border as they have been trained.

It’s offensive when politicians try to convince us of something that they’re not. I once had this experience with a Republican state senator in California when, as a newspaper reporter, I pinned him down on his votes to raise taxes via something called the Vehicle License Fee.

When forces from one country start shooting at uniformed forces from another country is that simply a crime or an act of war? Certainly a uniformed deputy sheriff, operating under the color and authority of the laws affecting his jurisdiction, is an agent of the United States, and as such, those foreign forces firing upon him, whether wearing a uniform or not, should be considered as engaging in war against the United States and therefore treated as such.
