There are many lessons that can be drawn from the current border crisis, but the most terrifying is the cold truth that there is no one in charge in America.
This crisis — for that’s what it is — has been building up for at least two years since the president of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, made an illegal run around Congress and abused executive authority to enact the Dream Act, a piece of failed legislation that was rejected by Congress for very good reasons, among them that Americans, not illegal aliens, should come first in our government’s priorities.
Since then, children have come or been sent in droves, by train, by bus, by overstuffed car, even by foot, secure in the belief that if they could only cross our border they will get a free pass to a life of luxury.
Children as young as toddler age have crossed the border unaccompanied.
How does that happen?
Children don’t have that kind of drive or desire.
Toddlers want their blankies and their favorite toy, not to trek hundreds of miles through a desert for some elusive mirage of streets paved with gold.
Obviously, they are dragged here by adults, probably not even their parents in most cases, who then throw them at the border and run to get a fresh batch.
On our side of the border, we have fantastically wealthy individuals like Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and Sheldon Adelson, who recently wrote a column in the New York Times prattling on about how we need to have mercy on illegal immigrants with advanced engineering knowledge and pay for the schooling of young illegals with engineering aptitude.
I’m sure the 8-year-olds who’ve been dragged away from their families, probably abused along the way (particularly the girls), and finally tossed scared, alone and sick into a land full of strangers are happy to hear that you’re going to help foreigners take high-tech jobs that should go to Americans. But I suspect that more of them would like to know why you’re really encouraging this chaos and what you’re going to do to get them back home.
The president is arrogant enough and uncaring enough that he’s willing to jeopardize the lives of scores of thousands of children just to put pressure on Republicans to pass another one of his “it’s all about me” bills and screw the rest of the country.
One day, Obama’s karma will run over his dogma, and he’ll get his well-earned comeuppance. Until then, he is playing with human lives just to score points with the pinhead Progressive crowd that still laps up his nonsense at fundraising stops.
All the people who are supposed to have authority say they’re helpless, people with resources to help just want to help themselves, and people who have the most reason to want to fix the situation have neither resources nor authority.
Ordinary Americans can see what’s going on, and what they’re seeing is that the entire house is falling apart, in danger of collapsing while people from outside shoot flaming arrows at the front door, and the guy who’s supposed to be in charge is refusing to lift a finger because he’d rather hold the country hostage than act like a leader by compromising and using his alleged personal charm to inspire people to follow him.
The Founding Fathers covered this situation in the Declaration of Independence, the law that declared us to be a country, the same document that many liberals refuse to acknowledge is even a legal resolution. Small wonder why, because the Declaration contains within it the Founding Fathers’ recommendation for dealing with a situation such as we have on the border.
“… To secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
There is no one in charge. Our Constitution has been shredded by an individual acting as if he is a king. Congress is deadlocked, neutered and unwilling to act. The Supreme Court is fueled by crass politics.
There is no one in charge. Our government is failing and acting in its own behalf against our interests.
So what now, America? What are you prepared to do?
