It’s been a long and very busy week at the Victorian Homestead. We’ve been preparing for a new arrival, making space for our new baby and shopping for everything she needs. Our family is deliriously happy to have finally gotten her, a long and arduous undertaking to say the very least. Her birth was not a happy one as she tested positive for heroin, meth and coke. She had to be given morphine to help with the pain of withdrawal and that caused a huge drop in her birth weight. Her ‘mom’ has three other children, one is with her father, the other two adopted by others. She is a beautiful baby.
Watching BO’s speech was a real hoot. Condemning Hamas over their “tunnels into a sovereign state” and, the “Israelis have every right to destroy them” caught him up as he realized that is exactly what is happening at our southern border. He really hoped you didn’t notice that statement as he rambled on quickly to try and cover that huge gaffe. Aren’t we also being invaded by drug cartels and their smuggling tunnels? Yes, we are. Is Mexico complicit? Yes, they are. Is Obama complicit? Yes, he is. Don’t expect him to admit that one any time soon.
The Daily Mail has an article about the southern border situation. Democrat “compassion” to score political points caused this.
Vickers, 64, told MailOnline on Wednesday that since 2012 his organization, the Texas Border Volunteers, has counted 259 dead bodies in his native Brooks County alone, including those of children.
‘And we’re probably only finding 20 per cent of them. A lot of people die out here.’
‘We find a hell of a lot of women,’ he said. ‘Three of the last ones who have died on my ranch have been women. We found a dead 12-year-old boy on my neighbor’s property.’
Some have the good fortune to find Vickers and his crew.
‘We’ve rescued some small children, quite a few,’ Vickers recalled. ‘One boy, 11 years old, was left behind 8 or 9 miles off the highway. He had no idea where he was.’ The border volunteers gave him water and arranged for U.S. Border Patrol agents to pick him up.
‘I’ve seen families out in my front yard under a tree,’ he said, ‘with little bitty toddlers with them.’
The group of about 300 amateur patrolmen go out in teams of up to 40 armed men at a time for 4- to 5-day patrols, reporting to Border Patrol agents and Texas Rangers on where the immigrant traffic is heaviest.
In nine years of scouring south Texas, no shots have been fired.
Rep Gutierrez, we don’t hate your children. We, unlike the Progs, don’t want them to keep dying for a political agenda. According to the Census there are close to 7 million Hispanic children living in abject poverty in the US. Why would you want to add to that number?
With all that is going on in the world what is Obama concerned about? via weaselzippers
Nasty storm heading our way, have to close for now
