A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
According to an article at Fox Nation (HERE.), that is what Arizona Senator Jon Kyle reported to an audience at a town Hall meeting where he spoke. The article goes on to say that Senator Kyl told the audience, at a tea party meeting, that the President, himself, told Kyl, in a face-to-face meeting in the Oval Office the he (Obama) feared the GOP would not support his “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” bill (Otherwise known as the Amnesty for illegal Aliens bill) bill if he secured the borders first.
According to Fox Nation, Kyl reported the President said: “The problem is, if we secure the border, then you all won't have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform." Then Kyl went on to say: “In other words, they're holding it hostage." The report says there was an audible gasp from those present at the meeting when Kyl reported this bit of news.
Soon after Kyl’s remarks were made public, the White House denied the President had made such a statement. But Kyl’s office is standing by what the Senator said.
Kyl also says the President made it clear to him that the promise of those National Guard troops he promised to send to the southern border was a political tactic on his part, (The President) to help assure the passage of Obama’s comprehensive immigration Reform – AKA Amnesty for Illegal Aliens.
None of this should surprise anyone. This type of thuggery, and political blackmail, has become a hallmark of the Obama Regime. As we pointed out some months ago, the Obama regime is set-up to operate as a “political mafia” organizations taking their cues from the gang bosses of the early crime families in Chicago.
Well, the republicans had their Nixon, and now the democrats have their Obama and, as far as I can tell, there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between the two presidential administrations.
If you recalled we warned you early on that the democrats would not be able to contain themselves and the lust for power. We warned often to expect the democrats to “overreach.” They do it every time they game the upper hand in the nation’s legislature and/or the White House. All one has to do is just observe the democratic leadership in the US House of Representatives, and in the US Senate and, of course, in the White House.
The Mainstream Media is playing right along as the
lead propagandists of the Obama Regime in an attempt to keep the US citizens distracted with all the many and varied crises sucking up all the ink from their publications and all the air time from their broadcasts.
And… to make matters even worse for those of us who oppose Amnesty, there has been a huge disconnect between the citizens of America and their representatives in the US House of Representatives and the US Senate. I must tell you, however, I now have doubts about that “disconnect.” I have come to believe that more than a “disconnect” it is a “deliberate distancing” of our national legislators from their constituents -- especially for those that follow in Obama’s footsteps and subscribe to his socialist dogma.
Well, We have said all along the problem with illegal immigration across our southern border could be fixed, almost immediately, if the government wanted it fixed. Now we know for certain that they do not want the southern border sealed. See, those are democratic voters coming across that invisible line headed north into the land of milk and honey and -- along side them on their northward trek -- is cheap labor!
As you can see with this latest revelation by Arizona’s Senator Kyl, the American people are at an impasse with their government.
So, what so we Americans do with a government that refuses to enforce America’s laws? The answer? Throw them out of office this November.
The Founders of America intended this country to be administered by a government that governed with “the consent of the people.” Clearly that is less and less the case as each recent election has shown.
It is time for Americans to reclaim their right to a government that responds to the wishes of the people by tossing out those who refuse. Their replacements would be well advised not to unpack their luggage to quickly upon their arrival in Washington, DC.
