Obama Considers Using Military At Border

Barack Obama is considering using the military to secure the violent region known as the Texas-Mexico border. Obama is said to be looking at a tipping point for action. Americans have been killed down there as a result of the drug war going on. My question is, does not the murder of Americans constitute a tipping point?

I am also don’t think that Obama has much say in this because he is not talking about using active duty troops:

“We’re going to examine whether and if National Guard deployments would make sense and under what circumstances they would make sense,” Obama said during an interview with journalists for regional papers, including a McClatchy reporter.

“I don’t have a particular tipping point in mind,” he said. “I think it’s unacceptable if you’ve got drug gangs crossing our borders and killing U.S. citizens.”

Unless Obama plans on calling the National Guard to active duty, he has no control over them. He is not the Commander in Chief of the National Guard unless they are called to federal service.

Until that time they belong to the governor of the state and he should be ignoring Obama’s “tipping point” and sending the troops down to squash the violence.

It would make no sense to federalize the Texas National Guard to perform a mission in Texas. The National Guard is capable of handling the unrest and it has the authority to detain Americans who might be breaking the law. The active duty is forbidden by law from performing police actions.

Governor Perry has called for 1000 troops to secure the border but Obama said it is a big border and he is not sure he wants to militarize it.

Perry should just call up his Guard and send them and their combat equipment to the border to protect his state. The border might be an issue that belongs to the feds but the state belongs to Perry and the citizens of Texas. They have every right to defend their state.

He needs to ensure they are safe while Obama twiddles his thumbs looking for the tipping point.

    Hey, now you know that if that was done Obama would not have any control and that would really upset his ego!!! Is Perry a Democrat? If he is, he probably will not go against Obama, and that is the problem. Everyone seems to be afraid of this controller.

    • Bunny Colvin says:

      Barbara- Perry is a (r)epuke. C’mon now, you got the inside scoop on that Muslim Obama, but you don’t know slick rick?

      Those in the know (like me) have been well aware for quite sometime that Perry is homosexual. Yes, Rick Perry will complete the Holy Trilogy of CONservative closeted gay men once it all plays out. Craig-Haggard-Perry. The Mount Rushmore of hypocritical preachers of intolerance. And I used to think that Ricky was a Bush man. Boy, was I wrong.

      • Mike Thayer says:

        Haaa haaa Alinsky number 14. Can’t debate the issue so destroy someone.

        The Texians are contemplating the execution of the Declaration of Independence for their state, become a Constitutional Republican just like the US is supposed to be.

        Gove Perry may have to increase the size of his National Guard, his northern border may need some protection against illegals too.

        • Bunny Colvin says:

          Mike- I don’t think ol’ Ricky should be increasing the size of his anything, given the circumstances.

      • Big Dog says:

        Bunny is in the know in the homosexual community. That is what he said.

        The same people who see homosexuals everywhere and just know they are can’t see a Socialist when he is right in front of them and could not see Clinton was having sex with that woman and raped others. Clinton is a rapist and the women in the know have been ignored.

    As usual this idiot ignores the constitution which he is sworn to uphold. You know if all else fails–read the constitution–maybe he would find his “tipping point.”

    Article 4 – The States
    Section 4 – Republican Government

    The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

    Oh lord. If one more person mentions Alinsky I’m going to throw up. I’ve never even heard of this guy or read his rules so why is it now that Obama is in office everybody is accusing me of going by that playbook? Stupid ideas spread through blogs like a bad cold.

    • Big Dog says:

      No Adam, you might not have heard of him or read his book but Hillary and Obama have. Hillary spent time with him. Wasn’t her thesis on him? Obama has read it. He probably got his copy from Bill Ayers, who is now the object of a murder investigation…

    • Victoria says:

      Hey Adam, Alinsky, Alinsky, Alinsky.

  4. Bunny Colvin says:

    Dog- Go ahead with your gay baiting. I couldn’t care less. If I were gay, I would hold precisely the same views that I do. So if it makes you hate me more, go ahead and call me gay. All I know is that you claim to be some kinda Injin, yet you root for the cowboys in the movies. And this makes you a traitor in the eyes of your feathered friends on the reservation.

    I am well aware that Bill Clinton is responsible for a large part of the worlds suffering, not to mention the coming “revolution” in America. This much I’ve gathered from reading Dog Dirt. I was unaware however, that Clinton is a rapist. I’ll add it to the list. Who was his victim? Mrs. Larry Craig? Gina Gershon? Ted Haggard? Give us the dirt!

  5. Big Dog says:

    Now see Bunny, that is what I mean by the intolerance of the left. You call people Injins to make fun of them but if someone called Obama a Ni**er you would call them a racist.

    You are in intolerant boor who tries to be cutsey with insults and people don’t care for it. There is no insinuation that you are homosexual and I don’t care whether you are or not.

    You have the obsession with the sex lives of people. You have the obsession with people who have engaged in homosexual behavior (well, Republicans) and you are the one who keeps bringing it up. Then you claim to be in the know about homosexuals. You are the kind of person who cries intolerance because the will of the voter is to reject gay marriage and then you disparage people who have been caught or alleged to have participated in homosexual behavior.

    You are intolerant you disparage anyone not like you.

    Do you wear a white sheet on your head like your buddy Robert Byrd?

    And it was Juanita Broaddrick.

    • Bunny Colvin says:

      No, no. Once again you miss my point, Dog [redacted]. I disparage people who have been caught or alleged to have participated in homosexual behavior, while simultaneously casting votes against equal rights for gays and/or lecturing America on the “sin” of homosexuality. I cannot understand how you fail to see this. I wouldn’t care if Craig and Haggard were gay if they hadn’t used their bully pulpits to preach intolerance. Do you understand yet? Just in case, I’ll give you a related example. I would have had no objection to noted racist former Senator Strom Thurmond’s fathering of a child with a black woman had he not been a segregationist. It’s the hypocrisy, stupid.

      Juanita Broaddrick! You’re kidding me, right? About as credible as Larry Sinclair.

      You’re a hack, Dog [redacted].

  6. Big Dog says:

    It is not that I fail to see things but I understand the contradictions of people who sin. I also do not think it is contradictory for someone to be homosexual and oppose gay marriage.

    But see Bunny, you are selective in your indignation. How do you reconcile politicians who claim to be Catholics (or other Christians) and claim they follow scripture or are guided by what they learn in church and then support abortion. Some say they are personally opposed but professionally have a job to do. There is no difference.

    How about a politician who opposes the death penalty but supports abortion? How about those who push for DUI laws but drink and drive? Or what about a president who would have to uphold our nation’s drug laws but used drugs in the past?

    I have yet to hear your insightful musings about these Democrats who live the hypocritical life you assign exclusively to Republicans.

    I know, she is not credible because Clinton said she lied. How about Katherine Willey? How about Paula Jones, or others. Now Bill probably did not rape them but he sexually assaulted them.

    Clinton was caught in a huge lie about his sexual exploits (actually two because Flowers was proven to be the one telling the truth) and Broadderick was not so I will go with what she says.

    If it were my daughter I would have beaten Clinton to death.

  7. Bunny Colvin says:

    “Or what about a president who would have to uphold our nation’s drug laws but used drugs in the past?”

    Who, W?

    • Big Dog says:

      No, Obama. Remember, you were the one who said you were against this duplicity.

      I guess you have to give a brutha a break and sheet’ cause he hasta use some blow to shake whitey dissing him.

      Or is that affirmative action to call out Bush and ignore Obambi?

  8. Bunny Colvin says:

    Nope. Wrong again. But don’t worry, I’m used to it. The difference is that Obama admitted to his mistakes while dubs refused to discuss his drug use “for the good of the children”. Big difference.
