Now Obama wants to “help” African Nations/States. Now, instead of deposing tyrants and dictators, like in the messy ME, we get to help tyrants and dictators oppress their people. The Daily Mail lays it out. Suffice it to say, BO has promised billions to “help” the tyrants and dictators become much richer on the backs of the US taxpayers. Wasn’t that nice of him. Those leaders haven’t thought about the African nation of Libya and how well that’s all worked out.
Looks as if that “politically expedient” decision to abandon Iraq has finally paid off. Tens of thousands of religious minorities being persecuted, murdered, beheaded, raped, “show all the warning signs of genocide”, so says John Kerry. He, along with BO, doesn’t seem to think the murdering of Christians all over the damned planet by Islamic nutters is genocide. Those “strongly worded” messages they send in the “hashtag diplomacy” and the garbled responses by BO and the State Dept. are beyond insensitive. One thing for sure Obama is NOT the big humanitarian he claims to be. All he cares about is his politics and his agenda. Nothing matters to any of them. This presidency is the biggest mess of a joke there has ever been. While they concentrate on the asshat Pals in Gaza, who voted in Hamas, the rest of the ME is flaming. BO’s idiotic speeches and his Utopian philosophy are coming back to bite him. Sometimes as President of the US you have to make some hard choices. He’s too afraid to make any choices at all that his loony base are against. He would destroy his own country and its reputation to please the far left and himself. What a nightmare for the world to have to endure for another two years. The US needs to do less hashtag diplomacy and a little more “shock and awe”. Sometimes you have to face down evil. I don’t know what he’s thinking or, what is going on in that so called brilliant mind, but he said this, Statement by the President
“The southern border is secure”, so says Dingy Reid. But, the reality is not co-operating with that statement. DOJ Report: Nearly Half of Fed Crimes Near Mexican Border
It’s not as if this is new, but to see it spelled out in a government report with a detailed breakdown is truly alarming. The statistics illustrate that the Mexican-border region is a cesspool of crime that’s costing American taxpayers a chunk of change not to mention loads of grief. There are 94 federal court districts in this country and the five located near the southern border see a large portion of criminal cases, according to the Justice Department’s annual report on criminal prosecutions. The five federal districts also have the biggest number of defendants actually convicted of federal crimes. [snip]
Of the 61,529 criminal cases initiated by federal prosecutors last fiscal year, more than 40%—or 24,746—were filed in court districts neighboring the Mexican border. This includes Arizona, New Mexico, Southern California, Western Texas and Southern Texas. The two Texas districts each had more than double the convictions of all four federal court districts in the state of New York combined, according to the DOJ report. The Western Texas District had the nation’s heaviest crime flow, with 6,341 cases filed by the feds. In Southern Texas 6,130 cases were filed, 4,848 in Southern California, 3,889 in New Mexico and 3,538 in Arizona. [snip]
Not surprisingly, most of the offenses were immigration related. In fact, 38.6% of all federal cases (23,744) filed last year involved immigration, the DOJ report confirms. Nearly 22% (13,383) were drug related, 19.7% (12,123) were violent crimes and 10.2% (6,300) involved white-collar offenses that include a full range of frauds committed by business and government professionals. This is hardly earth-shattering news in fact, the nation’s southern border region has for years been known for its high crime rate compared to the rest of the country.
The Obama administration has dealt with this crisis by pretending it doesn’t exist. The president’s first Homeland Security Secretary, former Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, spent a great deal of her tenure proclaiming that the Mexican border “is as secure as it has ever been.” In the meantime, the Justice Department’s National Drug Intelligence Center, shut down by the Obama administration in 2012, confirmed that Mexican drug cartels do in fact “control access to the U.S.-Mexico border” and the “smuggling routes across it.”
Progressive wants reality to be a certain way. Reality does not cooperate. Progressive ends up being “trapped” between wish and fact. That is the reality of Obama, he is trapped in folly of his own making and wishful thinking.
