An Endless Scavenger Hunt

Recently a disturbing story emerged out of Texas wherein Benny Martinez, chief deputy for the Brooks County Sheriff’s Office, had the unfortunate assignment to accompany a justice of the peace to a location where the skeletal remains of an illegal immigrant had been found.

The deceased must have succumbed to the type of ghastly death that comes as a result of dehydration and heat stroke. Worse yet, the positioning of the bones indicated clear signs that animals had actively fed upon the corpse.
Border Agents report that thus far, a total of 42 bodies have been found this year alone in desert fields and ranches around Texas.

As for the poor fellow whose brittle, sunbaked frame was found under a mesquite tree, after making the dangerous three- or four-day journey searching in vain for a checkpoint in the hot sun, he apparently gave up hope.

According to Bob Price of Breitbart Texas, who reported the story and had accompanied Martinez in surveying the terrain, “Animals had taken their toll on the body as there were mostly skeletal remains. The skull was located about ten feet away from the rest of the body.”

What’s unnerving about the mental picture the story evokes is that, besides being horrific, a skeleton with its bones picked clean offers an illustration of what America may eventually look like if this illegal incursion keeps up.

This particular illegal immigrant did not make it all the way to the Promised Land, thus his lifeless body became lunch for the local wildlife. Still, many of his brethren are safely completing the trip and bringing with them death, disease, and malicious intent, all of which threaten to end the lives of many more than the 42 illegal aliens who died after collapsing in the desert.

In fact, the onslaught of potential predators trekking north is figuratively poised to do to America exactly what was done to that decomposed carcass lying under the tree on that Texas ranch.
Thanks to the president’s wooing, combined with lax immigration policies, some who set out to accept his open invitation do unfortunately perish. But by comparison, many more make it all the way to the bureaucratic buffet Barack Obama has set out before them.

At this very moment, illegal immigrants are headed our way with the express intent to feed off of America physically, economically, socially, and spiritually, reducing Barack Obama’s immigration reform crisis to an endless scavenger hunt where millions are being lured by a tantalizing assortment of government goodies the president has placed like crumbs along the so-called “path to citizenship.”

If the liberal vision of flooding this country with millions of Third World refugees actually comes to pass, all that will be left after the feeding frenzy is over will be skeletal remains.

As a six-year fight to maintain our sovereignty challenges our corporate energy, it would be best for America to learn from the desiccated cadaver found by Border Patrol agents in Texas and refuse as a nation to capitulate to the socialist onslaught currently depleting our resolve.

Because rest assured, if America does lay down, even for a second, what will be left of this once-great nation will be nothing more than a headless corpse in the desert whose bones have been picked clean.

The Deadly Obama Virus

viruses-8869-1920x1200Originally posted at American Thinker

In the beginning of the 2009 flu season, Barack Obama declared the H1N1 swine flu a national emergency.   By October of that year 1,000 people had already died, and according to the president there was the threat of a pandemic. In order to hasten treatment and convince Americans to line up like lemmings for a flu shot, Obama gave former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius a one-time authorization to bypass standard federal regulations to quickly respond to the outbreak.

The president repeatedly warned the public that a pandemic was approaching, and that the numbers of people getting sick were escalating quickly. In his plague-panic declaration, the president wrote: “As a nation, we have prepared at all levels of government, and as individuals and communities, taking unprecedented steps to counter the emerging pandemic.”

Vaccine production delays compounded the problem and enhanced the drama. Finally, when the injections did become available to Washington DC school children, Sasha and Malia Obama, who were 8 and 11 at the time, were the first of the Obamas to be inoculated.

As tension mounted, the White House announced that Michelle and the president, like a captain willing to go down with the ship, decided to wait in line.

Publicly, Obama said, “I suspect that I may come fairly far down the line… We will stand in line like everybody else. And when folks say it’s our turn, that’s when we’ll get it.”

Supposedly, a selfless Obama wanted priority target groups — people under 24, pregnant women, and those with underlying conditions — to go first.  Probably closer to the truth was that, rather than risk his own health on a possible tainted vaccine, the president wanted “useless eaters,” fertile women, and the chronically ill to be the guinea pigs.

Speaking of pigs, according to the CDC, after the swine flu scare was over, in a country that typically sees 36,000 deaths from the flu annually, that year 12,000 Americans died of the swine flu.

With the H1N1 scare and the look-at-me vaccine photo op far behind him, waiting in line wasn’t something Obama wanted to do when he stopped for lunch at Franklin Barbeque in Texas. President Obama was so eager to get “nine pounds of brisket, four pounds of turkey, ribs and a pecan pie for a total of $422” – he cut the line.No

Unlike the swine flu emergency of 2009, in 2014 the president seems to have more interest in barbeque than he does concern for the Border Patrol agent from Laredo, Texas who may have lifelong complications as a result of the bacterial pneumonia he contracted while processing the swarms of sick illegal aliens that Obama, who had plenty of time to eat spare ribs and pecan pie, had no time to visit.

According to Agent Jarrad Seely, vice president of National Border Patrol Council 2455, being so gravely ill is a “very traumatic experience for [the agent] and [the agent’s] family.”  According to Seely it’s still too early to tell if the father of small children, who was very healthy prior to processing illegal immigrants, will fully recover or ever be able to work again.

Hector Garza, the secretary and treasurer of NBPC 2455, issued a dire warning when he said, “Our agents have been getting sick more often than before with flus and congestion and a whole bunch of respiratory illnesses.”

As this young father’s life and the life of his family have been forever impacted by an unnecessary set of circumstances created by a president refusing to address a lawless situation, the question is this: What happened to that guy who was so concerned about pandemics and preventing the healthcare industry from being unnecessarily overwhelmed with deathly ill people?

If the H1N1 virus caused the president such urgent trepidation, why then, with his implicit approval, are a whole host of much more treacherous viruses streaming in unchecked at our southern border?

Why would Obama consider H1N1 a national emergency and then just five years later wave through the yellow quarantine tape scores of untreated illegals into the midst of a population with almost no exposure to diseases like scabies, MDR-TB, whooping cough, Changas disease, MRSA staph infections, and Ebola fever?

To lend context to a possible answer, in 2010, while looking for drug traffickers to rob of marijuana, Mexican citizen Manuel Osorio-Arellanes murdered Border Agent Brian Terry with a gun obtained from Obama’s failed “Fast and Furious” gun-tracking operation.

Terry’s needless death, as well as the subsequent death of ICE agent Jaime Zapata and hundreds of Mexicans also killed with “Fast and Furious” guns, have all confirmed that if fatalities further Obama’s agenda, the body count is of no concern.

Since taking office this president’s actions and inactions have confirmed over and over that the mission of progressivism far outweighs a few thousand – or a few million – American lives.  That’s because, in the liberal mind, illegal immigrants with bad intentions and deadly communicable diseases are not a threat, they’re just facilitators of an agenda belonging to the man who insisted every American had to have a flu shot.

For some reason, Barack Obama’s need in 2009 to enforce federal oversight by attempting to inject Americans with a vaccine to save lives has given way in 2014 to a total disregard for the health, safety and wellbeing of all of us.

Barack’s Bull Run?

bullrun3Originally posted at American Thinker

For some reason the cameras that are banned on the border were not banned from the Wynkoop Brewing Co. pizza and pool hall in Colorado where, in lieu of the middle finger, Barack Obama flipped a pool stick at America, banged back a few brewskis and yukked it up with Democratic governor John Hickenlooper.

Cameras being banned from liberal policy hubs most assuredly indicates that whatever is going on there, if truth be told and visuals matched with verbal accounts, the American people would be horrified. That’s probably the reason why cameras are banned from abortion clinics and sonograms are opposed by pro-abortionists.

Cameras or not, Barack Obama is one very busy man who, besides avoiding unflattering photo ops, also lacks the inclination to waste precious time pretending to be concerned while visiting the southern border to take stock of his Cloward Piven/immigration reform crisis. 

Thus far, the states being directly invaded by hordes of illegals have nothing to say because Obama has all but wrestled control from the state level to the federal level with nary a peep from John ‘No Impeachment’ Boehner or the do-nothing Congress elected to represent the American people.

So while the rest of the country nervously anticipates a future where our children will be exposed to deadly Third World diseases or lured into murdering/torturing MS-13 gangs, the president responsible for putting every American’s life in danger has been busily fundraising in Colorado and Texas.

And why should Barack Obama worry? To cover the costs of things like “Monopoly…playing cards… beanbag tosses and other games for illegal immigrant children,” the president has done his part by upping the initial $2 billion he was supposed to ask Congress for to $4 billion. 

As for the issue of housing the illegal children, that’s also being dealt with. Although Christian pastors are banned from immigration camps, according to a couple who called Rush Limbaugh, Catholic bishops who forgot how Obama has mistreated the Catholic Church, and who probably tend toward the liberation theology way of interpreting Scripture, are pitching in by encouraging parishioners in California to open their homes to lice-ridden urchins. 

But again, no need for Obama to fret — medical personnel and staff have been threatened with jail for speaking out, and the transporting of illegals to parts known and unknown is being handled by the feds. 

As for the homeless children, illegal families all over America are welcoming thousands of kids into their casas in hopes of matching them with two equally illegal parents due to follow close behind in the days ahead.

But most importantly, there is no need for Obama to stress because Border Patrol agents, who were also prevented from speaking about changing diapers and playing nursemaid to babies and toddlers, and who, as a result of close contact with highly contagious children have contracted swine flu, TB, scabies and more, are currently receiving government medical care on par with that provided our veterans via the Veterans Administration.

That’s why, with everything so well controlled, Barack Obama, the man the media likes to falsely portray as being concerned about the “humanitarian situation” he created, seems unperturbed, and even ebullient. 

Obviously the president is completely satisfied with the course of events on the border, because what appears to be anarchy and disaster to some is a hard-won accomplishment for him.

So unconcerned is he that as pandemonium has ensued and protests have erupted at Ground Zero Invasion, up north in Denver, along with enjoying beer and billiards, a happy-go-lucky Barack turned his attention toward gorgeous weather conditions and outdoor lunches. 

That’s right, speaking to handpicked guests in Cheesman Park, a cheery Mr. Obama, full of pizza and beer, talked of summertime outdoor dining, of all things.

Barack Obama, the man responsible for luring illegals over the border like ants swarming a half-eaten hot dog roll at a picnic, suggested to the crowd: “I think we should just stay here all afternoon and have a picnic. This is really nice around here. Wow. What a gorgeous day.”

Whether the president realized what he was saying or not, for those who have ears to hear, the comment evoked memories of a historic event that took place way back in 1861 in Manassas, Virginia, also in July, at a time when the nation was being torn asunder by a different type of turmoil.

One hundred fifty-three years after people, reporters, and government officials showed up at Bull Run to picnic and watch an encounter that they believed would be the first and last battle of what turned out to a long, protracted and bloody Civil War, Barack Obama addressed Mile High City supporters and actually proposed picnicking.

Putting pool, pizza, and beer aside, the question that remains is whether a seemingly nonchalant Barack Obama’s picnic reference was coincidental, a prophetic foretelling of what lies ahead for America, or a clever taunt hinting at the lengths he’s willing to take this fight if the amnesty battle he’s worked so hard to manipulate resolves itself other than the way he wants it to go.

However it all turns out, while Barack ‘Rack em-up’ Obama consciously or unconsciously makes cryptic references to Civil War events, the situation on the border does seem to be slowly heading toward a modern-day replay of the picnic at Bull Run.
