Another Fight Over States' Rights
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Arizona has plainly re-asserted itself as a sovereign state. They have just reminded the US Government, and everyone else, that the US is made up of 50 sovereign republics with their own internal governments.
As the Obama Regime readies itself to ram the New Amnesty Bill down America’s throats, as they did the ObamaCare Bill, Arizona’s actions are an apt reminder that secession is hovering over the border states and you can bet it is being whispered about in the halls of various state legislatures all across America today.
Look, Obama is either an idiot, or a fool, if he believes the states are going to take what he is dishing out without a fight. If he continues on his current course of belittling the legal citizens of that state there is going to be a huge backlash, not only in Arizona but also across the southern states, which are practically overrun with illegal aliens. In other words, “it ain’t gonna be purrty.”
Look for the state of Texas to balk at this New Amnesty bill, as well. Do not be surprised if Texas revives talk of secession. As a matter of fact, it may have already begun. Texas State Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, will soon introduce immigration legislation comparable to a law recently enacted in Arizona, according to Berman’s aide. According to the report, Berman is planning to introduce the bill in the 82nd Legislative Session, which begins in January 2011. You may read the entire article HERE.
We warned, many months ago, that the Obama Regime and his socialist cohort in the West Wing and the Congress would make another attempt at passing an Amnesty Bill. Well, here it comes.
This time they call it “The Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America’s Security and Prosperity Act.” Just sort of rolls off your tongue doesn’t it?
Those of us who grew up fighting the socialist menace have heard these monstrous names for unsavory programs before – in the USSR. It is an old trick. Give it a name so long and so complicated that the reader or hearer’s eyes glaze over and they lose interest right away. The new name for this New Amnesty Bill was meant to do just that.
In the past few days it is beginning to appear that the legal challenges to Arizona’s tough new anti-illegal immigration laws may, very well, stand up to the scrutiny of the courts. So Obama is trying a new tactic: guilt and embarrassment.
Just the other day, while in Iowa, Obama said: “You can imagine if you are a Hispanic American in Arizona, your great grandparents may have been there before Arizona was even a state." He went on to say: "Now suddenly if you don't have your papers and you take your kid out for ice cream and you're going to be harassed, that's not the right way to go."
I am STILL struck by the democrats drive to reward criminals for breaking US laws with a gift of citizenship in the very country they entered illegally. It doesn’t even make good sense. You do not REWARD criminals for breaking the law! But THAT is exactly what Obama and his socialist coterie is hell-bent on doing. It is a key component of their master plan to destroy the constitutional republic of the United States and replace it with the oft-referred-to “socialist dung heap.”
There will be a reckoning. Do not think that ALL 50 states will go along with Obama’s socialist plans. It simply isn’t going to happen. The states have just begun to push back. From this point onward, there will be hell to pay if, and when, federal authorities begin throwing their weight around within sovereign states not embracing Obama’s socialism.
The states along the US/Mexican/ Border are a powder keg with a lit fuse. They could explode at any time. Obama’s blowing on the fuse only makes it burn brighter and faster and may result in an explosion much sooner than expected.
We have warned numerous times that if the federal government continued to refuse to enforce the laws concerning illegal immigration and continued to refuse to close, seal, and secure the US/Mexican border, then the citizens of the states, especially the border states, would do it for them.
It has begun. The genie is out of the bottle, as it were, and the current US Socialist Government is going to have a fight on its hands it obviously did not expect.
The fact that they did not expect Arizona’s actions speaks volumes about the lack of sensitivity of the Obama Regime to the wants and wishes, the likes and dislikes, of the American people. It also tells us that, in their arrogance, they really don’t care.
