This Administration has sunk low before. There’s a trail of government officials’ bodies to prove it, in Benghazi and at the U.S. southern border.
It’s proved how callous it can be about individuals’ lives by flooding Mexican drug cartels with U.S.-made weapons under the Fast and Furious program.
And except for one deserter, it never steps up to help individuals in need, not for a veteran held prisoner in Mexico and not for the pregnant Christian wife of an American citizen facing execution under Sharia law.
But this time, the Obama Administration has managed to set the bar to its lowest point yet by using innocent children to cram its monarchical agenda through a neutered Congress.
Day by day, hour by hour, by the trainloads and truckloads or sometimes just on foot, hundreds and thousands of minor children, most without adults, are flooding across our southern border, a border which the Man Who Would Be King has refused to police, in violation of his duty, in violation of the Constitution, in violation of the sacred honor of the presidency, in violation even of basic human decency.
“This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes,” wrote the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers in a ringing condemnation of the president.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has called the tide of illegal immigrant children the creation of the federal government. Sen. Jeff Sessions placed the blame for the ongoing tragedy squarely on Obama, who has sidestepped Congress and implemented the Dream Act even though it was voted down.
The White House has pushed continuously for amnesty, which it softens by using the euphemism “immigration reform.” Obama and his minions have made it clear that the White House’s, and by extension the Democratic Party’s, intent is to legalize millions of non-Americans who broke the law to come here and use them to the party’s political advantage. RINOs on the other side of the aisle, palms well-greased by the likes of the National Chamber of Commerce, are pushing the GOP rank-and-file to accept amnesty, and the fundamental change in the country’s character it would imply, as inevitable.
After all, he ran on the promise to change America, and he’s going about it, violating every constitutional restraint, ignoring every nuisance law, and tossing aside every accepted norm of human behavior to do so.
How could anyone with a still-beating heart abuse thousands of children, endangering their health and their lives by luring them with promises of the pot of gold in America, only to stack them like cordwood in warehouses until such time as he can release them like feral dogs in the streets just to provide photo ops that will further his agenda?
“Certainly,” the Border Patrol group wrote, “we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States government.
“Anyone that has taken two six- to seven-year-old children to an amusement park can only imagine the problems associated with bringing thousands of unaccompanied children that age up through Mexico and into the United States.”
Obama is drunk with power. Suddenly creating “citizens” out of millions of people who are not just ignorant to American history and norms, but in many cases have been raised as red-blooded adherents of Marxism and other statist ideologies, will indeed do what he promised and change the country by swinging it toward his own warped views.
Before Obama came to power and even continuing today, many liberals have come forth with the question, what’s wrong with a little socialism (or communism, or Marxism)?
We’re seeing the answer right before our eyes, and it’s exactly what we conservatives have always said it would be: rampant poverty, tyrannical government and human misery. Under any form of statist government, the people are just raw materials for the ambitions of the leaders.
Hordes of the sheeple have accepted this as their lot. (You could fill volumes analyzing how a country founded on personal liberty came to this pass.) They’ve accepted that government is their master, not vice versa as the Founding Fathers intended. Therefore, they’ve accepted that government-run lives from cradle to grave are their destiny.
Conservatives know their history, know their heritage, and they feel the fire of freedom burning in their veins. They don’t truck with that “destiny” garbage.
To quote Winifred Burkle, “Can I say somethin’ about destiny? Screw destiny! If this evil thing comes, we’ll fight it and we’ll keep fightin’ it until we whup it. ‘Cause destiny is just another word for inevitable, and nothing’s inevitable as long as you stand up, look it in the eye, and say, ‘You’re evitable!'”
Obama is not our future. He’s an obstacle we need to get over.
