I think that remains to be seen.Marco has said all along that no border security no bill. He has yet to change that mantra.Until I see otherwise, I’m supporting him.
I’m in your same boat, and I do it for your same reasons. We have to keep FR up and running strong. I loved the days when I could contribute extra, but I can’t right now. God Bless and Keep you.
Sorry, my comment was poorly written. People are using the comment, “What Difference Does it Make?” in “funny” ways. (My pwn mother even used in response to a question I had.) What Hillary said with that comment is evil. She is saying noone really needs to be held accountable for what happened. The lives of those lost or those injured don’t deserve people held to account for their lack of action or for improper actions.
We don’t disagree in our understanding of that phrase. I don’t right good sumtimes, upchuck.
That comment, What Difference Does It Make, while funny in a peculiar way, is plain evil. An Ambassador was murdered, and these idiots are getting away with doing nothing but bringing shame to our reputation in the world.
combine that with “ we came, we saw, he died” and we get the picture of
MSM dual faced non response
Rubio and the others can talk border security/enforcement first all they want to.
But the fact of the matter is that Obama is working towards the opposite just as fast as he can.
And when he doesn’t get his way in Congress he’ll just sign another EO.
Just last week there was a story about the feds being ordered to dismantle the southern security network. The strong of aerostat balloons that provide real time scanning and coverage of the border from Brownsville to San Diego.
Our southern border is, in part, protected by the Tethered Aerostat Radar System (TARS), which utilizes moored balloons hovering at about 15,000 feet to identify low flying aircraft and missiles that may penetrate the border and cross into U.S. airspace.
The system is utilized by the U.S. Air Force, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), and U.S. Customs and Border Protection for a number of missions including detection of drug smuggling and preservation of the air sovereignty of the continental United States.
According to Exelis Systems Corporation, the company that built and jointly maintains TARS with the U.S. Air Force, the government has ordered a complete shutdown of Aerostat flight operations:
The government also indicated its intent that aerostat flight operations will cease on March 15, 2013, and that the remainder of the fiscal year will be used to deflate aerostats, disposition equipment, and prepare sites for permanent closure. We are currently reviewing all the details of the RfP and evaluating the possible impacts on the program and our workforce. We continue to communicate with the government on this matter, and we will have more information in the coming days and weeks.
An Exelis employee close to the TARS project had this to say about the closure of the sites:
Not only will this closure mean hundreds of people will be out of jobs, but it also means our borders will not be safe, especially along the remote U.S. Mexico Border like in Texas.
These defense radars detect low flying aircraft infiltrating our borders.
Without these defense radars, low flying aircraft will go undetected.
It will be open season for any drug/gun/slave smugglers, terrorists flying in with nukes, low altitude missiles, or even a full scale low elevation invasion/attack against America.
With China actively and openly deploying Russian-made low altitude strategic bombers, designing EMP weapons capable of disabling the countrys power grid infrastructure, and establishing economic zones within the United States, its difficult to imagine the motivation behind the move to further weaken U.S. air defenses on the southern border.
If September 11, 2001 was any indication of our air defense capabilities, and considering that any ground invasion of the United States would originate on our southern border, then wouldnt we want as many early warning systems as possible to be actively protecting our country in these specific areas?
The U.S. government has chosen to shutdown this outward facing surveillance system, and has instead turned the surveillance inward, on the American people.
Since Feinstein's bill outlaws anything and everything up to and including "the shoulder thing that goes up", it's more a liberal's opium dream.
(True, like many I thought the same thing about Obamacare, but the libs had a supermajority when they passed that.)
I would not put it past Leahey to use the Sandy Hook backlash to get the camel's nose further into the tent with some so-called "common sense" legislation, like universal background checks or magazine capacity limits.
Thank you....I didn’t realize it was dead.
Wayne LaPierre's struggle against the phony Wallace was pretty good, but infuriating. (on FOX)
Over at FNC, Rodguy claims they are giving proper coverage to the slaying of author and sniper Chris Kyle.
And you for all you do for FR onyx!
IMHO...44 is gonna use things like Fienstien’s bill dying in committee and more and more states passing legislation to not enforce his recent EO’s as an excuse to make a blatant gun grab by fiat.
Something along the lines of:
“Since Congress has failed to act...and since states are REFUSING to act...I’ve been left with no choice but to sign an Executive Order here by stopping all sales distribution and manufacturing of the types of weapons listed in Senator Fienstien’s legislation. In addition, I am requesting that Homeland Security aid local law enforcement in the collection of these same types of weapons from the people that own them. The safety of our children can not and will not be hindered by antiquated and time wasting debates about the 2nd Amendment and the Constitution.”
What Difference Does it Make?
And I think that we all know what she was really saying is:
“Who gives a $h!+?”
We have one of these balloons down here. We call it Fat Albert.
It is used to monitor stuff coming in from Cuba and elsewhere in the Caribbean. If it goes down zero will be leaving us wide open to terrorism and almost unlimited drug smuggling. That's probably what it's all about.
We are under attack from within. Hard to say how many times we have to point it out.
Pretty much. She’s done talking about/explaining it. Rand Paul was right - she should have been fired (along with plenty other folks, it seems).
Meanwhile on the Obmacare front I stumbled across this courtesy of another Freeper via Freepmail.
I didn't realize this happened at the time but its a true blockbuster!
The link above documents how Justice Roberts was probably blackmailed into declaring obmacare a tax when he knew it was illegal all the while
Seems Roberts adopted or basically “bought” two kids from Ireland,claiming they came from Central America. The story got out and he got caught.
Its likely that he was blackmailed about what he did and he chose to screw 300 million of us by legitimizing obamacare so he could keep the two kids he basically bought from a woman in Ireland.
If its all true its strange at best.
If many of you already knew about it forgive my naivete,I'm just learning about it now.
Here’s another good one by Clarice Feldman about zeros Arab Spring and some of the dynamics within. Really good stuff here.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and many friends of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle tonight. Todd and I first met Chris in Pella, Iowa, when he helped out with security for the premiere of the film The Undefeated. And later we became friends with Chris when he was on Stars Earn Stripes with Todd. Chris was a wonderful man, a good friend, and a true American hero who loved our country and served honorably. He was loved and admired by so many, and he will never be forgotten.”
- Todd and Sarah Palin
God bless the Palins!
Here’s another one over at Hot Air.
This is a very nice springboard for Mark Kelly as he uses his wife to break into politics.
Apparently when he resigned from NASA he was asked if he’d be getting into politics maybe to run for Kyl’s seat (Flake has it now) or something else in AZ. He said he wasn’t looking at running for anything, but he didn’t rule it out.
Nothing was mentioned about this being due to sequestration.
And quite frankly I doubt it’s related.
It’s just another bit of appeasement for the open borders crowd...just like stopping construction of the border fence was.
Former first dog Barney Bush dies
I loved it when he tried to bite that reporter. Dogs are often better judges of character than people :)
I just heard Dingy Harry talking to Stepinawfulpiss:
He owns lots of guns.
He used to be a police officer and carried a gun (scary)
His father shot himself (suicide)
Refused to disparage the NRA and supports 2A.
I want to see that transcript, both for Stepinawfulpiss’s asinine remarks, and also for parsing purposes.
What a buncha crap.
I saw that...I guess we are to assume that Wallace isn't packing (clarification: concealed carry)
...and has no armed bodyguards.
Right on, Girlene. I wanted to reach into the TV and do bodily harm to Wallace. What a lame thing for him to say, “What about the malls but but what about the theaters?” They shouldn’t be advertizing “Gun Free Zones” and then they wouldn’t be a shooters paradise.
I haven’t seen any GOOD reason why it is being dismantled, but it will leave the borders less secure.
Rubio will oppose Chuck Hagel nomination
Anchor: Joining us now, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, a member of the foreign relations committee as well as the intelligence committee. Have you heard anything one way or the other, senator, that causes to decide your vote on Chuck Hagel?
Rubio: Well let me begin by saying that Chuck Hagels service to our country, particularly in Vietnam is something all of us admire and I dont think you will find any debate about that but he is being nominated for one of the most important cabinet positions in our country, the secretary of defense. I stated long ago Ive been deeply disturbed by his previous comments and positions in regards to sanctions on Iran and in regards to direct negotiations with North Korea. Obviously statements he made about Israel. these are not the kind of statements and kind of positions I want to see our secretary of defense have and these are big, big problems. For those reasons I just dont believe I will be able to support his nomination especially after his testimony in the last hour here has really not said anything that addresses those concerns to my satisfaction.
That’s just it. There is no good reason or explanation.
Coyotes can start investing in Beechcraft aircraft to smuggle illegals across and al Qaeda will now be able to get their dirty bombs into the U.S. from Mexico undetected.
Not only that but a more open borders lets the CIA get even more drug money, more jihadi terror types into the country, more illegals, more Cloward/Piven. Everything the regime is looking for works better with open borders.
As I have been saying open borders are more important than an immigration bill or amnesty.
Once the illegals are here zero will get them voting,on welfare,etc. no matter what. Look what we just went through nothing but election fraud and more food stamps.
The attacks from within have just begun.Guess who the targets are?
Dingy harry is running scared any time he gets on tv or any other big audience. We all know what Rush did to him last time he shot his mouth off.He probably still has a sore ass. He’s not likely to forget it any time soon either.
Wallass is not getting any younger. He desperately wants a DBM job with one of the former big three. He will probably get even more brazen as time goes on.
I doubt Wallass is packing either, probably a short pencil....
I don’t know what Wallace’s aspirations are, but his performance in the one clip I saw was quite poor. I DO give him credit for addressing the debate over gun control. Most of the others are barely addressing anything to do with gun control.
Where he went off track - he must have a personal slant toward more gun control and he let it get in the way of good journalism.
Politically, Zero had the entire immigration debate set up by the bent axel so they win on either side of the issue.We need not forget any issue they deal with,invest any time in only has merit from its political value. As usual we let them pick what issue they wanted to demagogue us on.
If they get amnesty or anything close they win.
If they don't get a bill they will demagogue us until cows fly. It will become the new it was all GW's fault.
That's why its so important that Marco has made the rounds everywhere and didn't depend on the drivebys to get his message out. He got it out on his own. Everyone knows what he stands for and who he is.If he is not willing to support the bill because of inadequate border security we will not take nearly the hit had he not gone out and reassured everyone.
He even one-upped the left by doing it all in English and Spanish. Marco Rubio has to be axelrod's worst nightmare. He's made a lose/lose into a near win.
I simply don’t trust him. Look at his heritage, its all left wing.
YAY......not. I haven’t seen an explanation as to why it is being shut down. Do you think it might be because it is being replaced by drones? COngress just approved drones for flights over the US (in the last year or so).
No they only want the drones to watch what they Libs view as the real threat...and they see it as coming from within...not from outside.
Women feel sorry for victims so Giffords is the perfect show and tell for them. You can bet the women are off the charts for gun control thanks to their feelings.
Did they mention the shooter was a Democrat?
Pray for AB
Sorry, I'm not a big fan of bowling.
I don’t trust any of them, rodguy.
Reading some comments on another thread reminded me of something on MTPress, amnesty debate.
Ralph Reed was on MTP pushing for the latest amnesty plan in the Senate. Ralph Reed??? It seems that all the politicians, all the political strategists, everyone in the ruling class all agree that we need more illegals, need to give unearned citizenship to the current illegals, need to give away more unearned freebies because they think it will help them “politically” (or get more votes)
In the real world where real people (the legal types) live, get jobs, pay their bills, etc,.....those people do not agree. Real world people are tired of supporting illegals and do not want more.
Wallace can use today’s interview of Gabby’s husband as his audition tape. He would certainly fit in with any of the other “news” channels.
Also, from the transcript, Capt Kelly said:
“Gabby and I are both gun owners and I don’t think you’ll find a person stronger a supporter of the Second Amendment than me and I defended it with my life over Iraq and Kuwait.”
I did not hear him say Kuwait. He said Iraq and Afghanistan. So Fox “amends” their transcripts. How interesting! The reason I looked this up was because I was wondering what kind of service he was providing in A’stan if he was in the Space Program at the same time. So I’m sure that he must have ‘misspoken’ and Fox accommodated him on a ‘correction.’ Ethical?
There is no difference between FOX and Pravda anymore. They are both there to support the Ruling Class. They all attend the same brie and chablis parties and want to be on the A list. La Pierre is on the Z list and is attacked accordingly.
Pray for America
Larri, are ya ok?
