Iran-Mexico reach agreement on creating joint economic commission

Is there any doubt in anyone’s mind as to the seriousness of our border situation with George W. Bush’s buenos amigos Mexico??

Is there any doubt that this nation is in the most dangerous position in it’s entire history and our own political leaders are the very ones that are directly responsible FOR this imminent danger??

Our President, his predecessor, Mr. Clinton, and his father before him, George 41 are ALL globalists that seek to make the United States of America disappear, and they are not going to secure our border with Mexico, in fact, they are all but ignoring the border right now, our National Guard troops leaving, Border Patrol filling void, and this my friends is a total CROCK, the Guard was sent to the border to fill the void, to help in covering the areas that our seriously undermanned Border Patrol can’t cover…

The Guard wasn’t allowed to be armed, they weren’t allowed to have arrest powers, they were pretty much in position to be targets and observers, and that IS a sad state of affairs, the National Guard is exactly the force we need on the border, that job is well within their scope of duty and legality and the Bush administration sent them to the border as a dog and pony show, in an attempt to appease the Conservatives and Conservative Republicans in an effort to get some of us to stop blasting him so hard on border issues in our blogs and to our legislators…

As with many other weak-assed attempts to appease us, this one has failed too, and now we not only have the Bush administration telling us that they KNOW there are terror cells in the USA, they also KNOW that terrorists have, and likely continue to cross our borders every day, and now Iran and Mexico are going to form an alliance??

What in the hell kind of FOOLS do we have running this nation?? Are they that anti-America?? Are they scared to stand up for this nation?? Is their dream of ‘One World Government’ and globalism the driving force behind their ignorance??

You can draw your own conclusions but I will say this, if the true patriots of this nation don’t take a stand and stop this foolishness, and I mean VERY SOON, we won’t have an America left to save, or one that will be WORTH saving…

I still support Fred D. Thompson, for now…

July 27th, 2007 . by TexasFred

I’m a very Conservative, America 1st kind of guy, I live a Conservative lifestyle, I don’t try to tell people what to do, I worked all my life and I am retired, and fairly comfortable, I mind my own business, but I have a real penchant for being a part of critiquing politics and those involved in political campaigns…

Until the last couple of days I was pretty well convinced that Fred D. Thompson was quite likely the best choice we have if we ever expected to seat a real Conservative president again but there are some things that DO give me pause in regards to Mr. Thompson and his method of politicking

There are many things this nation needs, many issues that must be addressed and some of what Sen. Thompson has said has been very positive, very opinionated and very inspirational, but I have yet to hear Sen. Thompson lay the smack down on anything, and I hate lukewarm politicians…

ILLEGAL immigration and border security is one of the most intense issues facing this nation today, yes, the economy, tax reduction, the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and global terrorism are serious issues but ILLEGAL immigration as well as our lack of border security and it’s consequences are at least as important, if not more-so, than any of the other issues we face today…

Fred Thompson has said, in regards to illegal immigration, “The government could start by securing our nation’s borders. A sovereign nation that can’t do that is not a sovereign nation. This is secondarily an immigration issue. It’s primarily a national security issue. We were told twenty years ago if we produced a comprehensive solution, we’d solve the illegal immigration problem. Twelve million illegals later, we’re being told that same thing again. I don’t believe most Americans are as concerned about the 12 million that are here as they are about the next 12 million and the next 12 million after that. I think they’re thinking: ‘Prove you can secure the border and then people of good will can sit down and work out the rest of it, while protecting those folks who play by the rules.’” — May 14, 2007

And I can’t fault this statement in any way other than to say, it sounds great Sen. Thompson, but what are YOU going to do about it if YOU become President of the USA?? A lot of political rhetoric and lukewarm posturing won’t get it done this time Sir, President Bush has created some hard-assed political junkies in this nation, we are folks that have been lied to, used, abused and all around ignored by the very people we elected and we’re tired of it, we are fed up with lies, rhetoric and hollow promises…

Sen. Thompson also said, “We ought to be thinking about the day after Iraq. We have a threat out there like we’ve never faced before. And I don’t think the American people are being apprised of it; I don’t think they realize that this has been something that’s been going on for a few hundred years, and our enemies have another 100-year plan. We have a plan basically to get us through the next election.” — Hannity and Colmes Jun 7, 2007

Sir, we aren’t as stupid as the Bush administration and politicians in general would like to believe, the voters of today are more well informed on the all around issues at hand than ever before, and this time around we’re going to be very demanding, very hard line in what WE want and expect from our elected officials…

Mr. Thompson, don’t beat around the bush, no pun intended, come out STRONG and take a stance in favor of America and her people, her LEGAL residents, tell the voters, nay, PROMISE the voters that YOU will enact every effort possible to totally secure our borders and coastlines and that you will authorize our Immigration and Naturalization Service, as well as Border Patrol and various other allied agencies to begin a roundup of ALL illegals in this nation and that you will authorize the deportation of these illegals, make that promise and carry through WITH that promise and your place in American history is assured for the NEXT 200 years…

Take a look at this ‘testing the waters’ thing, and the ‘the waters are warm’ statement, both sound very down home and folksy, if you want to pull a frat-boy prank and make your buddy piss his pants, forget that, warm hell, get ‘em boiling, your voter support is there and can easily grow even stronger if you get a HARDLINE message out there that leaves NO wiggle room, with no way for the Dems and libs to interpret what you said and MEANT, in any way other than what YOU intend for your message to be, take away every avenue of attack and the Dems will fall in defeat, make solemn promises to the Republicans and Conservatives of this nation and you will take this election in a landslide, if you take a 100% America 1st stance Sir, abandon ANY idea of globalism or open borders, and if you promise to secure this nation as it should have been done immediately after the attacks of 9-11, and if you follow through on those promises, you will be remembered as a legendary figure in American political history…

Fail to do this and the only way you’ll see the White House is on a visitors pass…

I still support Fred D. Thompson in a bid for the White House, at least for now, even though this naming of Spencer Abraham gives me great pause, until I see and hear a bit more my support will stay with Fred D. Thompson, but there is one thing Sen. Thompson needs to keep in mind, lukewarm doesn’t get the vote, and sitting around making vague statements won’t get the job done…

Reason for Concern?? Speak your mind and let us know

July 26th, 2007 . by TexasFred
I have been doing a quick study on this Spencer Abraham guy, and I want to ask my readers, if you support Fred Thompson in his run for POTUS, does having him appoint Abraham to the position of campaign manager give you any reason for concern??

If it does, would you please spell out those reasons in comments, I know the fact that Mr. Abraham is a supporter of open borders gives me immediate pause, and I have got to get some definitive answers as to EXACTLY where Fred Thompson stands on our border issues and I have got to know EXACTLY what he plans to do about our borders and if having Mr. Abraham on board will make any difference IN those plans…

You’re Fred Thompson. As a former U.S. senator you had a pleasant and lucrative career acting in a tv show. Then an opening unexpectedly appeared in the contest for the GOP nomination, because there were no candidates acceptable to conservatives. The most important issue to conservatives was immigration. You made a few general statements indicating a readiness to enforce our country’s immigration laws and guard its borders. These comments immediately translated into significant popular support and turned you into a viable prospect for the Republican nomination, even though you had not formally declared your candidacy. Then you appointed as your campaign manager former U.S. senator Spencer Abraham from Michigan. Abraham is most famous as an arrogant open-borders fanatic in his work as chairman of the Senate immigration sub-committee in the late 1990s. He was so bad on immigration that in 2000 Michigan conservatives and Republicans voted for Spencer’s challenger, pro-abortion liberal Democrat Debbie Stabenow, in order to drive Spencer from the Senate. Abraham lost his Senate seat because of his commitment to open borders, pure and simple.

LP: Thompson picks Abraham [open borders fanatic]

In my 2002 book Invasion (p. 71, 76), I noted the open-borders obstructionism of former Sen. Spencer Abraham (R-Michigan), who fought to block the implementation of two different tracking databases–one for foreign student visa holders and the other for all temporary visitors (which was mandated by Section 110 of the 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act). Abraham led efforts to starve the first database of funding and crusaded several times to kill Section 110 altogether. On September 11, 2001, neither of those databases was in place. To this day, they remain incomplete.

Fred Thompson and Spencer Abraham: Bad combo

He hasn’t entered the Presidential race yet, but Fred Thompson, yesterday, showed us why he’s the scariest Republican Presidential candidate. And maybe the scariest of both parties.

Don’t believe Thompson’s claim that he understands the Islamist jihadist threat to America. His announcement, yesterday, of his choice of Spencer Abraham as campaign manager, told us everything we need to know. Although Abraham, of Lebanese descent, is a Christian, he is a career water carrier for Islamists of the most extremist stripe and made that the cornerstone of his failed, one-term Senate career and equally lousy tenure as Energy Secretary.

Jihad Spence: Fred Thompson’s Pan-Islamist Campaign Manager

Edward Spencer Abraham (born June 12, 1952 in East Lansing, Michigan) is an a former United States Senator of Lebanese descent. He had served as the 10th United States Secretary of Energy, serving under President George W. Bush. In July of 2007, he was named Campaign Manager for GOP Presidential candidate Fred Thompson.[1]

Some say schools giving Muslims special treatment

July 26th, 2007 . by TexasFred

USA TODAY - Some public schools and universities are granting Muslim requests for prayer times, prayer rooms and ritual foot baths, prompting a debate on whether Islam is being given preferential treatment over other religions.

The University of Michigan at Dearborn is planning to build foot baths for Muslim students who wash their feet before prayer. An elementary school in San Diego created an extra recess period for Muslim pupils to pray.

At George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., Muslim students using a “meditation space” laid out Muslim prayer rugs and separated men and women in accordance with their Islamic beliefs.

Critics see a double standard and an organized attempt to push public conformance with Islamic law.

Some say schools giving Muslims special treatment

I am not a terribly religious person, I’m certainly not a bible thumper but I do have my own set of beliefs in what’s right and wrong…

I don’t try to force my beliefs off on other people, I state an opinion in my blog and if folks don’t like it, they can move along and make all the criticisms they like in their blog, and I am going to likely piss off a few folks with this post…

The American left, libbers, the ACLU and anyone supporting that bunch of moonbats, ALL of you are nothing more than appeasement artists and you are rapidly bringing about the downfall of this nation with your fear of Islam and your desire for political, un-offended correctness…

My kids can’t say a prayer in school, my kids can’t go to a Friday night football game and have a moment of PRAYER, they have to engage in a moment of silence because a Christian prayer might offend some Godless heathen of an atheist or some moonbat cow worshipping Hindu or some asshat bomb wearing raghead, and I for one am damned tired of it…

America IS a great nation and we were founded on the belief that we have the right to express our religion, freedom OF religion, and I have no problem with that concept, but when I can’t speak a Christian prayer at a public function, when my kids can’t say a prayer at school or at a school function but Muslims are given free reign to practice their faith in all it’s demonstrations of symbolism and idolatry, I think we have reached a place in time where the American people, especially those that CLAIM to be such fine upstanding Christian Americans, I think it’s time they grew a set and took this matter up with their lawmakers, in great numbers, size is strength in this battle, look at the difference Conservative bloggers made in the AMNESTY bill of late…

I personally put NO stock in the Muslim religion, I think they’re a bunch of moonbats, but I also think that bunch way back up in the hills of Tennessee or Kentucky or wherever, the ones that handle rattlesnakes to prove their faith, well, they’re moonbats too, but they have the right to freely practice THIER religion, but they don’t have the right to force it on ME, and if I have no right to publicly display MY religious beliefs, then neither do the Muslims in America…

If we keep on giving in to every demand made by Islamic moonbats that want nothing other than to take over this nation, if WE keep giving it to them, then we have done this ALL to ourselves, doesn’t anyone have the GUTS to stand up to these people?? Have we ALL gone that soft??

We expect our troops to fight and die to FREE the Iraqis but we don’t have the balls to stand up for ourselves?? Right here in America??

What the hell is wrong with THAT picture??
