Obama’s Failed Border Policies Kill More People Per Day Then Firearms

Published

on

President Obama‘s failing gun control campaign peppered the air waves with the slogan “If we can save just one life.”  However, when it comes to the estimated 17,000 annual deaths from illegal drugs flowing over our porous southern border with Mexico, the President is remarkably silent. President Obama’s four years of border control failures have led to the deaths of tens of thousands of American men, women and children.
The President does not have the legal power to legislate gun control for any purpose even if it sounds honorable. However, Obama does have a legal obligation to protect American citizens and secure the US borders. Since Obama took office, Mexican drug cartels have moved record loads of illegal drugs, relatively unencumbered, across the US southern border. The current year’s data is not available, but based upon 2010 data; these trafficked drugs have killed over twice as many Americans (over 17,000) as those taken in firearm homicides (8036). In fact, in 2010 there were more illicit drug use deaths in America then accidental non-lethal firearms shootings.
Obama’s failure to secure the US/Mexico border and curb the flow of illicit drugs into American communities kills more Americans in one month than all mass school or public shootings have in the last 50 years. So where is the liberal moral outrage and calls for increasing border security and cracking down on Mexican drug cartels and street gangs? Too many American lives sacrificed to careless and questionable Department of Homeland Security Border Protection strategies while our Congress is discussing immigration reform instead of the drug war raging on American soil. In America, 90% of the illicit drugs sold, purchased, and consumed are brought across the US/Mexican border.
The White House web page (www.whitehouse.gov) entitled “Consequences of Illicit Drug Use in America” provided the following facts:

  •  “Compared to other causes of preventable deaths, drug-induced causes exceeded the 31,224 deaths from injuries due to firearms “(Note: 2/3 of all firearms deaths are suicides).
  •  “About 2.1 million youth lived with a parent who was dependent on or abused illicit drugs”
  • “The economic cost of drug abuse in the US was estimated at $180.9 billion in 2002, the last available estimate.”

Over 40 Americans die every day from illicit drug use. If an American corporation were responsible for bringing a product to market that fueled the deaths and economic carnage occurring across our nation, liberal politicians and left wing social activists would be calling for their scalps. Responsible parties would feel the full power and force of the Executive Branch. Vice President, Joe Biden, would be beating the Congressional bushes for support for new legislation designed to save children’s lives and make American communities safer from evil industrialists. So why are the Mexican government, drug cartels and drug gangs given an Obama exemption? Are the millions of dollars in campaign contributions worth more than the life of one child, Mr. President? Again, what happened to “if we can just save one life?”
Two days ago, worthless gun control legislation was defeated in the US Senate and President Obama called it a “shameful day for Washington. “ I will give you shameful. Every year that Barrack Obama has held office, Mexican drug cartel cross border illicit drug trafficking has increased and so has its associated drug deaths and human carnage. The US/Canadian border, a place that most Americans falsely assume is secure has also seen increases in the volume of designer drugs flowing to America.
I recognize that using illicit drugs are a choice and choices come with consequences, however, if liberals like Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly were truly concerned with keeping our schools, our families and our children save from indiscriminate acts of violence, perhaps they should consider securing US borders instead of feel good gun regulation and immigration reform. Time is better spent on a national border security policy that would save thousands of lives and families instead of trying to convince America that guns were the problem.
Bringing illicit drugs into a Muslim nation like Saudi Arabia, Iran, or Egypt will get you executed. Bring them into the US and we will read you your rights in the language of your choice, provide you with a lawyer, a trial, three hots and a cot and a ride back home if your home country will take you. If not, welcome to America, have a green card, the food stamp office is located at your consulate, and voter registration is no longer required.
Note: Every day in Russia, over 80 of its people between the ages of 16 and 30 die from using heroin produced and trafficked by the Taliban. According to Russian health officials, Russia is at risk for the extermination of an entire generation of its youth from Afghan opiate trafficking. One Russian Orthodox Priest involved in social welfare outreach was quoted as saying:” There purpose is to degenerate our nation. They are very successful.”
I am just wonder about Obama’s purpose.

Van Jones Praises Trump, ‘Doesn’t Get Enough Credit’ For ‘Good Stuff He Has Done For Black Community’

Van Jones Praises Trump, ‘Doesn’t Get Enough Credit’ For ‘Good Stuff He Has Done For Black Community’

Furious liberals demand that CNN fire Van Jones for saying Trump ‘doesn’t get credit’ for the ‘good things’ he has done for the black community.

“I think it’s really unfortunate because Donald Trump, and I get beat up by liberals every time I say it but I keep saying it, he has done good stuff for the Black community,” Jones said. “Opportunity Zone stuff, Black college stuff, I worked with him on criminal stuff, I saw Donald Trump have African American people, formally incarcerated, in the White House, embraced them, treated them well. There is a side to Donald Trump that I think he does not get enough credit for.”

Daily Mail:

Van Jones, the former Obama administration official and current CNN commentator, said on Friday that President Trump ‘doesn’t get credit’ for the ‘good things’ he has done for African Americans, prompting Twitter users to call for his firing.

Jones made the comment while providing on-air analysis during Jake Tapper’s daily CNN broadcast on Friday.

Tapper began the segment by panning Trump’s comment during Thursday’s debate in which the president said he had done more for black Americans than any of his predecessors aside from Abraham Lincoln.

The CNN host, who mentioned Lyndon Johnson’s signing into law of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as an example of a president who did more for African Americans than Trump, then played a clip from the debate. More

Van Jones is absolutely correct. I’m no a fan of  him, but regardless we could use more of this from both sides. Nothing wrong with acknowledging good work. The true measure of a person’s belief on an issue is in their actions and not what they say. President Trump has done most of what he said he would even under the most extreme of opposition.

Letter Threatens To Burn Homes Of New Hampshire Trump Supporters

“Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election.”

President Trump supporters in two small New England cities have gotten menacing letters threatening to burn down their homes.

“Dear neighbor. You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election. We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make sure that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given “Fair Warning.” Always remember, it was “you” that started this Civil War. Be prepared to face the severe consequences of your pre-emptive actions against democracy.”

TDW:

Someone is sending letters to Trump supporters in New Hampshire, threatening to burn down their homes if President Trump loses the presidential election but will not concede defeat.

As WMUR reported, the letter, which Milford police stated has been sent to various homes in the town displaying support for the president.

[…]

Brookline police Chief Bill Quigley confirmed two Trump supporters in his town also received the letter. “I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat,” he admitted.

Quigley said he alerted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, adding that the perpetrator could be charged with a serious crime. He explained, “Not only with us, with criminal threatening. It’s on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level.” More

So instead of trying to talk to people to earn their vote they would rather threaten and scare people.  These people who did this have no idea who they are screwing with. Live Free or Die and if pressured, we are ready to defend ourselves and our homes.

Independent Pollster Frank Luntz: Voters Turned Off By ‘Condescending’ Harris, Pence ‘Was The Winner’

Independent Pollster Frank Luntz: Voters Turned Off By ‘Condescending’ Harris, Pence ‘Was The Winner’

Pollster Frank Luntz told Fox News after the vice presidential debate last night that Vice President Mike Pence was the winner of the debate, saying that voters were turned off by Kamala Harris’ “condescending” and “abrasive” attitude toward Mike Pence.

“The complaint about Kamala Harris was that she was abrasive and condescending,” said Frank Luntz, who analyzed reactions from voters in various swing states. “The complaint about Mike Pence was that he was too tired, but [he was] vice presidential, or presidential. If this is a battle over style and substance — which is often the case with undecided voters because they simply do not choose on policy, they also choose on persona — this was Mike Pence’s night.”

Frank Luntz said that voters disliked the candidates dodging questions but overall they were much happier with the way the debate went vs. the way the first debate went.

Frank Luntz said that while voters were frustrated with the vice president for repeatedly running over his allotted time, “Harris’ reactions to Pence — the smiling, the smirking, the scowling’ left them far ‘angrier’ with her performance,” Fox News reported.

Luntz said that voters were “more agitated with Kamala’s presentation than they were with Mike Pence.”

Twitter has a few thoughts:

Trump Vows Immediate $1,200 Check To Americans If Pelosi Moves Bill

Democrats and Republicans have been quarreling for months over another stimulus bill to help millions of Americans struggling financially during the coronavirus pandemic. But the president has a plan to cut through all their red tape.

“If I am sent a Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200), they will go out to our great people IMMEDIATELY. I am ready to sign right now. Are you listening Nancy?” Donald Trump wrote on Twitter this morning.

Trump had another message for Pelosi: “Move Fast, I Am Waiting To Sign!”

As the leader of the Democrats in the House, Nancy Pelosi could recommend that her caucus to support such a bill, which likely would move quickly through the Republican-controlled Senate and make it to Trump’s desk in the Oval Office for his signature.

On The View today, Nancy Pelosi said: “It’s hard to see any clear sane path on what he’s doing but the fact is, he saw the political downside of his statement of walking away from the negotiations …he’s rebounding from a terrible mistake he made yesterday and the Republicans in Congress are going down the drain with him on that.”

“But I will say this, it is really important for us to come to this agreement. When the president just popped off and made that announcement without even informing us that that was the case, he insulted the Constitution of the United States.”

Nancy is the most powerful woman in the world? Keep on dreaming Joy Behar! How fitting… The biggest hypocrite in the country on the most hypocritical show on TV.

Steve Cortes Hammers Chris Wallace: "He had to debate not just Joe Biden, but you as well"

Fox News Channel host and registered Democrat Chris Wallace aggressively lectured at length Trump campaign advisor Steve Cortes during a messy appearance on Fox News today.

Chris Wallace yelled at Steve Cortes and continuously interrupted him while he tried to answer the unhinged questions from Wallace.

“The way you are starting to harangue me now reminds me of what you did to the president during that debate on Tuesday night,” he said. “He had to debate not just Joe Biden, but you as well.”

Wallace rejected that accusation and said it was a Trump campaign talking point. “You were not a neutral moderator,” Cortes said. “What I don’t think is okay for you to become the effective opposition to the president.”

Chris Wallace continues his nasty attacks even now that President Donald Trump is at Walter Reed. He’s blaming the president for contracting the China virus. He’s a partisan hack and Fox News approves of this. There’s no reason for a conservative to appear on Fox News Channel any longer because they’re not going to get a fair shake.

Scalise: Pelosi Turned Down Offer To Implement Coronavirus Testing On Capitol Hill

Published

on

By

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reportedly refused to implement Coronavirus testing for lawmakers in the nation’s capital, according to a top lawmaker.

“Congressman Davis is exactly correct,” Scalise said. “I mean these protocols have been out there and the testing capabilities have been out there for a long time. They were offered to the speaker and she turned it down.”

“I think it’s something that should have been in Congress for a few weeks now,” Scalise continued. “But ultimately that’s what the speaker decided to do.”

Scalise’s remarks come after Davis sent the following letter to Pelosi on Friday:

I am writing again today to reiterate my concern that we do not have a comprehensive health monitoring system and testing program for our Capitol Hill campus in order to help us do our part to stop the spread of coronavirus. I have stood ready to engage with your office and my counterpart on the Committee on House Administration for months, but my requests have gone unanswered. While I appreciate that the attending physician has been able to conduct COVID-19 testing for members who have symptoms or have been exposed, provide very limited staff testing, and advise offices on contact tracing, our ability to monitor the health and safety of the House is severely lacking because you have failed to implement a plan.

Universities, public institutions, private businesses, and communities across the country have embraced technologies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Yet, the House has failed to adopt similar tools that are now being used nationwide. As testing has advanced and become more readily available, the House’s posture on testing has not evolved from where we were months ago. Reports of changes to test offerings by the attending physician announced today are misleading as the criteria for receiving a test from the Office of the Attending Physician (OAP) remains largely unchanged. I’m concerned this has created confusion and misled everyone who works on Capitol Hill to believe testing options have been expanded.

The attending physician gives recommendations to our community, but the policies on how we govern the House are set by you and a widespread testing program has not been adopted because you have opposed it. This institution, similar to the White House, must continue to function to serve the American people during this pandemic. As a result, thousands of people who support this institution, report on this institution, and protect this institution, must continue to come to work and have not had the luxury of staying in their homes and working by proxy or remotely like some of your caucus members.

Our testing criteria should not reflect the news of the day or be to politically shield your office when difficult news breaks. This is not an acceptable way to communicate and continues to show your partisanship on this issue. Additionally, today provided a stark reminder that you and other members of Congress were able to receive a COVID-19 test, while in other instances essential workers of the House have been denied the same test because your office has failed to implement what you have called for nationwide. This is a “do as I say, not as I do” approach to governing that has been politicized when policies are inconsistently communicated and enforced and falls short of what our constituents deserve.

I reiterate my desire to work with you and stand willing to work with your team to develop and execute a plan that provides comprehensive and continuous health monitoring and testing capabilities for our transient congressional population and all who support the first branch of government.
