Posted on 06/17/2014 6:55:58 PM PDT by kingattax
HOUSTON, TexasGovernor Rick Perry (R-TX) appeared on Fox News Fox and Friends show and said Texas lacks the resources and manpower to secure the 1,200 mile Texas border with Mexico.
The comment sent shock waves through a Texas grassroots discussion thread on Facebook this morning of activists who are seeking a special session call from the Governor to deal with the issue of border security.

Remember the Alamo!
Yo Rick! Borrow some of those armed drones from Homeland “Security”. A few good strikes...problem solved.
amen ! remember the Alamo !
Who’s paying these people? Soros?
Oh, really????? How much are claymores?
It sounds like the resources that are missing are the governor’s balls.
This is why he needs to call a forth session...to dip into that rainy day fund.
Stop the invasion, Gov Goodhair!!
Call out the militia!
And Dirty Nellies! Across the street....
A presidential candidate would find a way, because a president would have to solve problems.
What happen to all the money for the Fence ?
He doesn’t have enough paper to pass E-Verify.
National Guard? This time WITH bullets!
get creative. Florida is overrun with gators.
buy several thousand, dig a big ditch, and fill it with em.
if Texas can’t afford that, start an online fundraising drive
“BUY GATORS FOR THE TEXAS BORDER”.
heck, i would start if off with a couple hundred bucks.
Bribes and bus rides for 80,000 through Mexico
I take it he’s not standing for election this fall.
it’s a start.
If we just enforced penalties against the hiring of illegals and took away all benefits we would not need to secure the border. The incentive to come and stay would disappear.
So you just do NOTHING, Rick??
(1) The TX Governor position is weak, Perry holds no real power
(2) There ain't enough Texas Rangers or County Sheriff's deputies to man a 1,200-mile border
(3) If Perry does do something, he will get smacked down by some leftist federal judge or by Holder's corrupt Injustice Dept
Note: I'm not defending Perry, just trying to see the situation from his point of view. If it was me, I'd give the clarion call for armed Texans to man the border in droves.
Stock the Rio Grande with piranhas.
Start spreading the rumor that the border is a minefield with plenty of warning signs. You don’t even have to actually put them down, just set off a few explosions near most popular routs and plant some blown up cattle near them and let the word get around.
how about some of those conservative cowboys in congress like gohmert and stockman try to get some emergency funding passed ?
tell the amigos that they will have to eat moochelle’s lunch menu every day.
I can’t say what I think about how to solve this issue real quick. When someone breaks into your house, what does a normal person do?
Remember the stand off at the Bundy Ranch. It seems rather obvious that our good Gov doesn’t intend to run for President in 2016. We sure don’t want someone else in the White House who can’t get problems solved.
It’s bigger than Soros. Hostile nations are running this show.
Perry is pro-amnesty and a former democrat.
Gov. Perry would carry a small firearm when he jogged. It was to deal with coyotes, so he said. Preparedness is good.
Too many wealthy Texans exploit illegal aliens for cheap labor. These Texans donate money to the politicians to ensure such exploitation isn’t abolished. Gov.Perry isn’t running for governor again.
Come on, dude; you better be prepared to run for President, but you’re not showing any sense.
There is a Texas solution to this problem, and it doesn’t include doing nothing.
Thanks, kingattax. Great job posting this. AND LOOK AT THAT SIDEBAR! THX, JIM.
Texas is rolling in oil money.
Perry’s story is not credible.
Well, 2 billion was taken from the IRS. There’s the money. Congress should declare this an emergency and send money to Texas.
That will piss off Obama big time.
Lt Gov candidate Dan Patrick is on it!! Calling for emergency funds to secure the TX border....and calling out Gov La Raza Rick, Lt Gov Dewberry and TX Speaker of the House....
Was when he said "If mountain ranges and oceans can be overcome, then anything built by man can be overcome."
Ditto for this, if can put a Man on the Moon, Build a Small Exploding Sun (Nuclear Bomb) we can keep out a bunch of Illegal immigrants.
If course you do! Mine the dam thing and tell the Pres of MX to shove it!
youre welcome Rita :)
Thanks Perry now you’ll turn Texas Democrat as illegals will flood into your state.
What a candy-ass response for a TEXAS Governor! Embarrassing!
Perry would rather Obamaminate the sacred Texas Border that runs against the hostile Nation of Mexico than call up his own National Guard, send his State Attorney General to the Republican-controlled US House to sue the damn US Federal Government for Border expenses reimbursement due to illegal non-enforcement of existing Federal Border Law by lawless Obama and lawless Holder.
Governor Perry could have sewed up Conservative support for his Presidential Campaign, or Speaker of the US House of Representatives, by standing for TEXAS and standing proud against Obama and Holder.
Ponder this Governor Candy-Ass:
The Governor of a State shall call up the States National Guard if He/She declares a State of Emergency. [TEXAS Manual of Common Sense Law].
Currently, there is no Federal Dream Law allowing for the physical invasion of Illegal Alien Children Invaders from Mexico - - - only the Executive Order edicts of a demented Obama that no State Governor has yet had the courage to challenge.
The failure of the Feds to repel the Illegal Alien Invaders should in no way deter the States bordering Mexico from physically repelling these Illegal Alien Invaders by any means necessary, including Concertina Wire Barriers, Flash-bang and tear gas canisters launched by mortars as far into Mexico as possible by heavily armed, State National Guard Troops.
Federal Border Laws are not being enforced, at the order of a Demented Obama, and thus The States along the Southern Border must enforce the Federal and State Border Laws that Obama chooses to not obey.
Since Obama has no Constitutional basis for his actions, let him try to enforce his lawless Executive Orders.
As with the First Civil War:
STATES RIGHTS ARE WORTH FIGHTING FOR!
In a thousand years they’ll make shows about how the US border must have been secured by ancient aliens because we sure as hell couldn’t have done it.
The comments following that article are sounding more like TEXAS!
Pleading with Breitbart to FRONT PAGE the Dan Patrick story! I will call Patrick tomorrow.
