Napolitano Will Close The Porous Border (Open Thread)

by Miri

It will come as quite a surprise to readers that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is sending more “experts to train … police and customs officials to better manage the country’s porous border crossings …” because such training is “critical.”  Has Ms. Napolitano suddenly seen the error of this administration’s approach to managing the US/Mexico border?  Has she suddenly realized how “critical” the situation is?  How important it is for our national security to close our porous border?  Au contraire, Mon Ami!

Although tasked to oversee THIS country’s HOMELAND SECURITY, Ms. Napolitano is sending experts to help deal with Afghanistan’s porous border, through which “Taliban fighters and Islamic extremists” cross with impunity and through which (gasp) drugs are smuggled!  Why is it so critical to close Afghanistan’s porous border?  Because then US troops will be able to leave, thus meeting one of Barry’s self-imposed deadlines.  Read all about it:

Ms. Napolitano, head of HOMELAND SECURITY for the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, recently traveled in a “surprise visit” to Afghanistan to meet with their leaders to discuss how the US will help “Afghanistan with equipment and capacity building for the country’s customs operations and with the training of border police.”  That’s what I call having your priorities straight.

Can terrorists waltz across the US/Mexico border?  Yes, they can.  Are drugs by the ton NOW, every day, carried illegally across the US/Mexico border?  Yes, they are.  Are violent gangs exporting violence and terrorism across the US/Mexico border?  Yes, they are.  Are illegal aliens by the hundreds of thousands pouring across our porous border?  Yes, they are.  In fact, I read only today that 340,000 anchor babies were born to aliens on US soil in 2009.

“William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) — while not questioning the need for border enforcement there — believes Napolitano is the wrong person to be advising the Afghans.

‘It’s ludicrous that a woman who is failing across the board at enforcing America’s existing immigration and border laws [is] advising anybody about their border,’ he exclaims, ‘unless the Afghanistan government or people really want open borders where illegal immigrants and al-Qaeda and the Taliban can cross freely at will, then I think Janet Napolitano would be a good source on how to advise them to maintain that.'[emphasis added]”

Well said, Mr. Gheen.   Border states took notice of Napolitano’s trip, too.  The Sheriff of Pinal County, AZ, disputed her statement in June, where she apparently claimed that our border is more secure than ever.

“‘If the federal government is trying to claim victory, they’re divorced from reality,’ said [Sheriff Paul] Babeu. The reality for Babeu is an increase in smuggling activity in his southern Arizona county, which he says is the number one pass through county in the country for drug and human smuggling.  In 2010, 44,819 pounds of marijuana were seized in Pinal County alone. That’s in addition to 335 pursuits and 370 calls to the U.S. Border Patrol. Those numbers were supplied by Babeu’s office.”,–gives-janet-napolitano-an-%22f%22

AZ bloggers are weighing in, too:  “The incongruity is that Napolitano travels the globe to work with Afghanis to secure their border but she refuses to lift a finger to secure ours. Yet when frustrated Arizonans, in the face of government inaction as we are overrun by illegal foreign nationals from Mexico, Central America and nations on the list of terror states, legislate protection in the form of SB 1070, it is referred to as “controversial.”  Moreover, Obama’s Justice Department brings a lawsuit to restrain us.”

We the People are seeing red, too.  Indeed we are.  Let’s hope that Congressman Darrell Issa is gearing up an investigation into what the hell OUR Homeland Security Secretary is doing ensuring that Afghanistan’s porous border is closed to terrorists and drug/human smugglers, whilst ignoring the only job she’s supposed to be doing:  Securing OUR Homeland, the United States of America.  That’s what she’s paid to do.

    Living like a Refugee Snips

    This globalist attack on America is taking place silently and stealthily. One of the newest white martyrs is Dr. Kate who has become an enemy of the Obama state in having to flee her home in North Dakota after decades of work for water rights and Indian rights, because Val-erie Jarrett has made this Lady a target to be destroyed.

    I have covered this in part, but it requires expansion as we now have irrefutable proof that the Obama regime is destroying Americans who do not bow down to them by depriving them of their livelihood and making them refugees in America.

    Dr. Kate who is a strong supporter of Lt. Col. Terry Lakin as millions of other Americans are, stated that when that kangaroo court for Obama was taking place that B. Hussien as pictured above seated next to Madame President, Val-erie Jarrett was meeting with select tribes having extremely large tracts of mineral wealth on December 15th.

    These tribes were from the Navajo to the above Ree, Hidatsa and Mandan now combined in the heart of North Dakotas booming oil shale bonanza, and they are petitioning for development of this resource from the Obama regime.

    This all ties directly into that Obama Sandlin Indian Nations law setting the stage for making Indian tribes separate nation states not administered by Congress, but administered by the globalists for the expressed purpose of stealing their resources like southern Sudanese Christians are going to have their oil stolen on John Kerry’s good word.

    The step in this is not that far in Obama heavily into debt with China will seek to have Chinese development of oil and natural gas inside America via the reservations. This will lead to PLA soldiers stationed in America to protect Chinese rights.

    You should get the point in this as while America slept the Indian reservations have been developed into meth labs, Mexican smuggling rings, weapons testing areas and mafia casinos. Obama is progressing this in one of thee most amusing things if you like deadly jokes, as Obama shut down oil drilling in the GOP Gulf and is now in the process of drilling on land in America on the reservations.

    I desire to point out though that this is not just 640 million acres of land, as children you have no idea how big this is, as there are reservations existing now and HISTORICAL RESERVATIONS.

    • Obama has now figured out that he can replace mafia gambling and meth production with international crime all flowing through the Indian Reservations.

      Dr. Kate is the tip of the iceberg in this in she like everyone who is associated with the tribes knows full well the stories going on out there, but in her being an American, she has become an enemy of the Obama state.

      For the record, the same thing which got George Custer and his family assassinated by the patricians in Custer was exposing all of this, is the modern manifestation of this in what is coming from Val-erie Jarrett in targeting Dr. Kate.

      How would you like to have to flee your home as Dr. Kate has? That is what the Obama regime in this Indian crime cartel has now inflicted on an innocent American.

      The regime has ordered Indians to not do business with Dr. Kate or the Indians will not get Obama handouts.

      That folks is blackmail of Indians by the Obama girl gang and it is felony crime in using the government to destroy an American.

    • Nobody writes like Lame Cherry. Do click over to Dr. Kate’s and read her latest. From Kate’s, you can click to another Lame Cherry story: I had to point that one out because Lame Cherry coins a word that I just love: nefarions. How great is that? Sums them up perfectly.

    • Have you seen this?

      A shot across the bow? (Can I say that? Is it civil?)

      “A House committee has asked the Homeland Security Department to provide documents about an agency policy that required political appointees to review many Freedom of Information Act requests, according to a letter obtained Sunday by The Associated Press. … Homeland Security had sidetracked hundreds of requests for federal records to top political advisers to the department’s secretary, Janet Napolitano. The political appointees wanted information about those requesting the materials, and in some cases the release of documents considered politically sensitive was delayed [e.g., passport records?]. … Oversight panel spokesman Frederick Hill said Issa sent the letter ‘because the committee has received documents that raise questions about the veracity of DHS officials’ on the matter.”

      In other words, somebody may soon go under the bus for mis-speaking (to be civil) to Congress. They laughably said, besides that they were only seeking a heads up on “controversial” issues, that ” political appointees reviewed the agency’s FOIA response letters for grammatical and other errors and did not edit or delay their release.”

      Oh, that’s rich, isn’t it? POLITICAL appointees must act as editors in the Obama Administration? Why is that? Too much affirmative action hiring? Too many people promoted beyond their skill grade? People who work filling FOIA requests are so stupid that they can’t write a grammatically correct sentence and so need the likes of political appointees to look over their shoulders? I have to hand it to Issa; this issue had totally dropped off my radar screen. NOW let’s hope we get to the bottom of those shenaningans with SADOS’s passport file. You know, that missing original application.

      Remember? “The AP reported that the agency’s career employees were told to provide political appointees with information about who requested documents, where they lived, whether they were reporters and where they worked.” So this ties in with other Obama administration behavior–so very similar to what Lame Cherry reports about how they treated Dr. Kate, simply for daring to stand up with LTC Lakin, who merely requested that this “man” prove that he’s eligible under the Constitution by showing to the people who EMPLOY him a document that he claims to have, which will prove his eligibility, and which costs less than $20 (as opposed to the millions he has spent to date hiding it).

  2. Help me out, I’m trying to remember. Is this the school that Obama went to.
    THE ADMISSIONS POLICY RACIAL ISSUE: Is the Kamehameha School’s admissions policy racially exclusionary? Why does the school have this policy? Is the policy racist? Is it required by the Will of Princess Pauahi?

  3. Im at a loss for words. Sad, so very sad.

    Boxing George


    Snip –

    Something is terribly wrong in the leadership of the black community. African Americans enjoy the highest standard of living in the United States. The premise of individual rights serves all men.

    The father of our country hidden by a ‘box’ by the NAACP (Free North Carolina blog)

    The annual MLK observance at the state house in Columbia SC had an interesting twist this year. The event is held on the north side steps of the statehouse. Prominent at that location is a large bronze statue of George Washington. This year, the NAACP constructed a “box” to conceal the Father of His Country from view so that participants would not be offended by his presence.
