The two branches of government

I can’t help feeling shortchanged. I was guaranteed by the Constitution that there would be three branches of government, but somewhere around 1911 we lost one. You have the Judicial Branch, which writes the laws. Then you have the Executive Branch which declares war, prints money and in general does anything it wants. What more do you need?

I can’t help but feel a little wistful for the good old days. I’m not so sure they ever really existed except in our Founders imaginations. The Legislative Branch was actually supposed to be the dominant branch. Yeah, that’s right, I’m not making that up. They were actually supposed to coin the money, decide how it was to be spent, tell the Judicial branch to sit down and shut up, declare war and make all laws.

And! In case of an incompetent President, impeach the bastard and throw him out. Yeah I know, what’s that guy been smoking. Instead, we have 535 jackasses drawing very large paychecks for absolutely no discernible reason. They could be King of the Hill. They could be large and in charge. Nope. Not a man amongst them. Also not one who can read for comprehension, they display a complete lack of knowledge of the Constitution.

Once you get beyond all that though, you are left with a really depressing situation. Although we were given a nearly perfect form of government, we will never experience it. All Congress is concerned with is where their next campaign contribution is coming from. They have absolutely no concern for the country, their responsibilities or the American people.

Once again though, you can’t get away from one inescapable fact. The American voter is asleep at the switch. The American voter is ultimately responsible for this. The American voter is to blame. It is your fault. The American voter has been so dumbed down that they are utterly incapable of identifying the problem, let alone fixing it. The collapse is inevitable. The only question is what the new country will look like.

The Sarah Palin Channel?

Sarah_Palin_850 B&W

I’m not sure if she has a good business model. $10 a month or $100 a year will get you a subscription to the web TV Sarah Palin Channel. Watch her political commentary first, and have the chance to ask her questions in video chat. Yeah? Maybe. She is the most interesting thing on TV. Half the time I think columnists write a piece lambasting her just so that someone actually reads their stuff. The same way when she does a guest spot on TV or radio, nobody is watching their stuff otherwise. I don’t know. I’m about her biggest fan, and I’m not likely to subscribe. On the other hand, it’s about time she makes some money off herself, instead of everyone else.

Obama’s border “crisis”

When even the Washington Post turns on a Democrat, you know it’s bad. The media insists on calling children crossing the border a “crisis”. A crisis is a sudden and unforeseen calamity. This current problem was well known to the administration in early 2012. As the Post notes, “Obama’s reelection took priority.” This “crisis” has been a slow snowball rolling down the hill and getting bigger for over 2 years now. How is a known 2 year old problem a crisis? In a July 19 article, the Post shows the timeline for over 2 years detailing the administrations incompetence. In the quote below, the 3 first ladies of these countries saw what was coming:

“In April 2012, the first ladies of Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala voiced their concerns at a conference in Washington on unaccompanied minors.”

But my problem isn’t really with the administration, Congress or even the media. My problem is with the American people. The old Who song said ‘don’t get fooled again’. We do. Over and over and over. Rahm Emanuel even gave away the game, “Don’t let a crisis go to waste. You can do things in a crisis that you couldn’t do otherwise.”

This is not a game. My tax money is being wasted, and real sovereignty is being lost. This is not a joke. The transformation of a nation is taking place, and no one cares. If it was just stupidity, once in awhile things would go in our favor. They don’t. This is not stupidity, this is design.

When you tally up all the department heads and agency heads that have been “asleep at the switch” on this, the numbers are staggering. Homeland Security, the intelligence community, all the Congressional committees, it’s mindboggling. Our cup of incompetence is running over. This has been going on for decades. Yet this November, less than 5 % of the incumbents will lose their job. How is that possible?

Americans will get fooled again. And we will continue this bullshit of crisis management.

A man on the radio today from the Policy Research Institute said our national debt is now at the level where it will increase exponentially. The $17.6 trillion dollar debt we currently have will increase to $52 trillion within 25 years. Oh don’t tell me, nobody saw it coming.

“Is lasting peace attainable?”

It’s not like the Register to deal in common sense, so naturally it was a guest opinion under the above title in Saturday’s paper. Sheldon Rabinowitz was given 36 column inches to give us his look into the future likelihood of the Israeli state coexisting with Palestinians. One paragraph was all he needed.

“No ceding of all or part of the West Bank would end the conflict. Islamic fundamentalists will never allow an infidel state to exist on what they consider Muslim land, and fundamentalists in that part of the world don’t settle issues by debate or arbitration.”

Huh. Who would have guessed? It’s rare you hear it put so plainly. In his last sentence he puts it this way, “There is no possibility of an acceptable or lasting peace agreement.” It seemed to me it would be like being forced to live with a pack of rabid wolverines in your house, and then being told you couldn’t separate yourself from them or protect yourself.

It’s not that tough. Their book says “kill the infidel”, and you are the “infidel”. Why do westerners always seem surprised by the results? Do we think they are liars? Hardly, they have been very consistent. I have never known of an instance where they do not try to kill the infidel. They have a  perfect record.

They have been very consistent for 1,400 years, they only got one playbook.

Who profits from continuing to promote this fantasy that the Israelis and Palestinians could possibly coexist? I have no idea. But I’m sure someone does. Until that is figured out, money and lives will continue to be wasted on this false premise. Follow the money.

But then, I can’t figure out why we are inviting those wolverines to come live in our house?

“2 officers injured, 3 men jailed in fight”

aaa crop 2 (3)

I had to stifle a laugh when I read that two cops got beat up Saturday night by three drunk illegals. If area law enforcement did their job, and shipped out illegals, their cops wouldn’t have been beaten up. I was laughing at the irony, not the injuries.

Both the Polk County Sherriff Bill McCarthy and Des Moines Police Chief Judy Bradshaw have turned Des Moines into a sanctuary city for illegals. They are aided and abetted in this by the Des Moines Register, who has been pushing this agenda for decades. It just seems ironic that the two biggest figures in Polk County law enforcement, advocate lawlessness. Actually, they are supposed to enforce the law.

The Des Moines Register with all their classifying of illegals as “undocumented” immigrants, and the notion that criminals are only here to pick our lettuce and clean our houses is bullshit. Over 30 % of the prison population is illegals. 13 people a day in the U.S. die at the hands of illegals.

I personally know a coworker whose car was totaled by an illegal with no insurance, big surprise. There is a woman in Marshalltown who had most of her family wiped out by a drunk illegal in an SUV. There are hundreds more stories in Iowa I don’t even know about, but the people do.

The woman from Marshalltown has been on the radio a number of times to tell her story. The car her family was in got hit by a big SUV driven by a drunk illegal. She was trapped inside her car surrounded by her dead family members, and the man and wife who hit her couldn’t be bothered to offer assistance. When the uninsured illegal got back to work at the packing plant in Marshalltown, he bragged about how he had fooled the cops by having his wife slide over into the driver’s seat. It was his third offense and he might have actually had some punishment thrown at him this time. Now that he had killed instead of just maimed. Yeah, the great Iowa cops had just let him go, he never did have to have insurance. What a country huh? Yeah, you can drive around without insurance, killing and maiming, and the damned Iowa cop won’t do nothing to you! As long as you’re an illegal. Try doing that if you’re a native.

Or that Iowa Air Guard Sargent who got wiped out on his motorcycle by two illegals in a car. They’re still in the country! Ain’t that great? Shoot, we just gave them more welfare and invited their kin to come! Yep, and the Register just keeps telling us we have to keep inviting more poverty and problems into this country, like we don’t have enough of our own.

Yeah, the Register for decades has rolled out the welcome mat for illegals, y’all come! Sex traffickers, gun runners, gang members, murders, rapists, thieves, more the better! Middle eastern terrorists, whoever. The Register wants them all. They don’t have to pay a price, just you. Union busting with cheap labor? Bring ‘em in the Register says! Can’t send them home, you’d be xenophobic! Nope, the Register says we got to give them food stamps and a house, free medical care, education for their kids, whatever they want, and the Register doesn’t want to hear you whining about it neither! It’s your duty to pay! I don’t know why, it just is. The Register buys their ink by the barrel, so what they say goes.

I have also stated on this blog over and over and over that a minimum of 80 % of the narcotics in this country come from Mexico. And they ain’t brought in by angels. It just struck me as incredibly ironic that two street cops got beaten up because their boss wants to be politically correct. They might as well beat those two cops up themselves. Along with the Register, Charles Grassley and Tom Harkin, because all those people have brought us to this point.

And another bit of irony, they are talking about how to send 60,000 innocent kids back, when at the same time they let all these illegal immigrants who beat up cops and kill people, and we let them stay. 12 million or so.

[Oh sure, ya little whiner, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking,  "Hell I only make a little more than $7.25 an hour, why do I have to pay for them?" They ship all the manufacturing jobs down to Mexico and elsewhere, and they still come here. Mexicans sure as hell didn't benefit from all the jobs going down there. WE didn't benefit. Who the hell did benefit? Its almost like the deck is stacked against you by the establishment. Oh I know, why don't you check with the Democrat Party. You know, the party of the working man. How's that working out for you? Sure we take in more legal immigrants than the rest of the world combined, but for some reason it's our responsibility to take in millions of illegal immigrants each year also. It must be because of all those jobs out there. You know, all those high paying jobs out there. You see them don't you?]

I blame the DEE Moyne Register

“We need compassion as U.S. tries to stem immigrant tide”. There are so many things wrong with that declaration. Compassion? If the Register gets it’s way and the government forces the taxpayers to pay for this fiasco, at that point it is compulsion. Does the Register really not know that? Are they really that dumb? You can’t be compassionate with someone else’s money, only a thief.

Number two, what do they mean “immigrant”? I never have understood the liberal calling an illegal alien an immigrant. What do you call the actual immigrant then? You know, the guy who did things the right way, waited his turn, wasn’t a burden to the system, was an asset to the community. It is an insult to the immigrant to use that term for an illegal. You see, when you commit a crime to come here, you’re starting off on the wrong foot.

Number three, “stem” what tide? Who’s trying to stem any tides? Our government is giving them lawyers, and welfare, and hearing dates 2 or 3 years down the road. At which time it would be “draconian to send them back now!” No, I don’t see any ‘stemming’ going on.

In the same paper with the editorial by the Register advocating lawlessness, that jackass Dana Milbank from the Washington Post keeps spreading the same lie. He uses a 2008 law signed by George Bush that had to do with protecting minors involved in sex trafficking, and tries to use it as justification for the lawless Obama administration. Their isn’t some “loophole” the invaders are exploiting that forces Obama to accept them. It is for a completely different crime!

In the USA Today section of the paper it reports that McCain and Boehner don’t support Palin’s call for impeachment. I would seriously doubt if McCain and Boehner do support that idea. They should be impeached themselves. They have been totally derelict in their duties to be a check and balance on the Executive Branch. Their job is to see that the laws of the nation are enforced. They haven’t been enforcing our immigration laws for 30 years. Impeaching Obama would highlight their own guilt.

But the real point, and why I blame the Des Moines Register, is because government can’t get into this defunct position, unless the “watchdog” let them. Our founders called the press the ‘fourth estate’. They wanted the press to ride herd on the government. The press was to be the final check and balance should all the other safeguards collapse. So much for protecting us against foreign invasion.

Now, not only have the Legislative and Judicial branches completely forsaken their duties, the check of last resort, the press, has forsaken theirs. What we are left with is an out of control imperial presidency that actively fosters a foreign invasion. Our system has failed. And so have the citizen voters who were supposed to have thrown these bums out.

We’ve done this before

This absurd situation at the southern border is not the first time the politicians and complicit media have done something stupid. Now we have blood thirsty MS-13 gang members, well versed in torture and murder, coming in amongst the needy. We are repeating the same deadly stupidity of 35 years ago.

Back in the late seventies we had a flood of Cuban refugees. Castro emptied out his prisons and sent them to Miami. The dumbasses in Washington and the press welcomed them with open arms. I doubt if the victims of the subsequent murder and mayhem were so enthusiastic.

The sad fact of the matter is, our “leaders” couldn’t get away with this crap if the people weren’t so mind numbingly stupid and asleep. This is not rocket science. 33 % of the prison population are illegal aliens who committed other crimes. Has been for thirty years. This isn’t people who were thrown in there for border crossing, these are murderers, rapists and thieves. Not everyone crossing is “just here to pick our lettuce and clean our homes”.

The DEA will admit that 90 % of the narcotics on the street in the US came across the southern border. All those ‘anti-drug’ campaigns and programs out of Washington and in  our schools has been a lie. A big fat boldfaced lie. How stupid are you not to have seen that? If anyone was serious about stopping illegal drug use, and 90 % of the drugs come across the Mexican border, you would have to shut that border down. But we haven’t. That border is wide open. So how can you POSSIBLY keep sending politicians like Grassley and Harkin back to Washington time and time again for over 40 years? Those two have been killing your kids. By knowingly letting in the scourge of drugs into this country by purposely keeping that border unsecured, every drug overdose and drug gang death in this country can be blamed on them.

There are consequences to not enforcing the law. Taking care of the basics, the fundamentals. Chickens do come home to rest, and we are seeing it now. The film clips on the news are there, minority women who are mothers in the towns where these illegals are being released are screaming, “Where’s the food for my kids? Where’s the medical care for my kids? Where’s the future for my kids? We have our own problems, why do we want to import more?”

No duh. This problem won’t be solved. “The world’s lone superpower” has no desire to enforce it’s own laws. Think about that, what kind of “superpower” can’t control who comes in? Hell, Mexico controls it’s border. Three months ago ONE US Marine took a wrong turn into Mexico, and has been sitting in their prison ever since. Where the hell is the justice in that? They send us millions upon millions of illegals, and they imprison the one we send them?

Congress has no spine to enforce it’s own laws. The President is a corrupt and lawless bastard. The voters are too stupid to throw the bums out. The only thing we can be thankful for is that Africa and Asia don’t have a land bridge to America.

As with every instance when the average American gets screwed by the establishment, all you have to do is follow the money. One side wants the votes from all  the new undocumented Democrats, and the other side wants cheap labor for it’s welfare farmers.

[Anyone who has driven through small town Iowa has seen the signs on the outskirts of a town, 'This is a DARE community'. Or by the school, 'This is a Drug Free Zone'. Really? What kind of ignorant s.o.b. would believe that? If 90 % of the drugs come through Mexico, and your government purposely keeps that border unsecure, how can you possibly say your government doesn't want your kid to die from drugs? They're spending your money on these programs, but they let the flow of drugs remain unchecked. They must want people addicted to drugs. They must want people to die from drugs.]

“Without borders, there is no nation”

aaa d c palin

That gal has a ton of horse sense. How simple is that statement? How true is that statement? You’d never hear that statement come out of Washington DC., the land of obfuscation and deception. But then, elimination of the nation state is the primary  goal of the NWO.

Mrs. Palin seems to be putting the blame solely on Obama, and there I will disagree with her. There are 535 coconspirators in Congress. The culture of corruption nurtured over the decades did not just emanate from the Executive Branch. From Iowa’s perspective, our two main culprits are Senator Charles Grassley and Senator Tom Harkin.

Both of those criminals had their own reasons for wanting an unsecure southern border. Harkin wanted all the undocumented Democrats coming across as new voters. Grassley wanted all the cheap labor for his welfare farmers, because for some reason in his mind, farmers shouldn’t have to pay a living wage. Neither one cared a damn about securing the border. All that talk about “national security” is hogwash with a wide open border.

Now, in 2014, we have this ridiculous situation where the world’s “lone superpower”, can’t/won’t secure its own border. What Mrs. Palin said was true, without borders, there is no nation. That is the most basic threshold of nationhood.

And of course, down the road two years or so when these little darlings do have their deportation hearings, the cry will be, “They’ve been here too long to send them back now. You can’t tear them away from their family! They’ve established a life here.”

All this is kind of ironic as we have a US Marine sitting in a Mexican prison because he took a wrong turn and crossed over into Mexico illegally. One man. We’ve got over 12 million of them.

[Harkin and Grassley took an oath to "protect and defend" the United States of America. To get to the point where we have in many different areas, and specifically border security in this case, I would submit that they have unequivocally failed in their duties. Knowingly and willingly. They should be brought up on charges.]
