Skip to comments.ISIS and an Open Border: A Perfect Storm
Posted on 06/18/2014 2:10:21 AM PDT by markomalley
As the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) marches through Iraq, leaving slaughter and mass graves in its wake, the obvious concern is the eventual creation of a terrorist state in the Middle East. Far across the world on the U.S. southern border, children from Central America are streaming north, at the tacit invitation of our president. Are these unrelated examples of a feckless foreign policy emanating from the White House? Or are these two disparate events are actually related and dangerous to Americas security?
Reported in the British media, its not only children crossing our border, but also gang members, including members of MS-13, one of the worlds most violent and dangerous gangs. Why arent we hearing more about this? Seems the White House doesnt want this in the news. Border Patrol agents are being told not to talk to reporters, according to the Daily Mail, with the threat of criminal charges against talkative agents. Vice-President Joe Biden however is happy to talk and is pleased with our porous border, calling, For a constant, unrelenting stream of new immigrants.
So how does ISIS play into this? When the current leader of ISIS was released from a U.S. detention camp in Iraq in 2009, his parting words to his captors were, See you in New York. Were his words a joke, as the Daily Beast reports? Or a reference to a 9-11 sequel? A clue might lie in Irans celebration of the 35th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution where Death to America was one of the more popular rally slogans.

All going according to president Jarrett’s plan.
I’ve noticed that everything in politics is a reaction to something else. Usually, it’s a direct opposition to something. The World Trade Center is destroyed, we go to war. Somebody attempts to shoe bomb a plane, we all have to take our shoes off before entering. Republicans run the country for awhile, people get disaffected, then we flop back to Democrats. Democrats run the country, people get disaffected and we flop back to Republicans. But this time the president’s invitation to bring us your young, your sick yearning for free medical care, your criminals, may actually result in a permanent (for any given value of “permanent”) militarized border.
Although pollster’s lament Obama’s poor polling I’m astonished that 37% or so see him as doing a good job. What shade of colored glasses must you wear to see that image?
Nothing this criminal administration does is unintentional.
In short, these guys are pretty clever. I can't see them upsetting their apple cart when they are so close to achieving their goals.
Once Republicans have been totally demonized, anything they say is interpreted by the Rats as politically motivated and hateful. That is our quandary. Nothing we say--or indeed, nothing that happens--is taken seriously. It is all shoved instantly into the "racist" box.
See post #7.
That’s what’s crazy, everybody knows a disaster is looming over our heads and has been all along but nothing happens.
We are always playing defense. The threat will only be obvious once something happens, not before.
What has to happen before real Americans throw off the veil of apathy and stand up and DO SOMETHING????????
A big attack here, linked to the southern border, would probably galvanize Americas 10X worse than 9/11 and might mean the end of the Dem party for a decade.
Point taken, but she's only one of about five or six people on the Politburo. I don't even know who's on it (by careful opsec arrangements in the White Hut).
Your larger point that this is all intelligently malicious and perverse, is well taken.
>>>A big attack here, linked to the southern border, would probably galvanize Americas 10X worse than 9/11 and might mean the end of the Dem party for a decade.<<<<
I used to think the same thing about another “big attack.” But I know think that the impulse to respond, and to respond with force, will be successfully muted and eventually quashed.
The few days after 9/11, there was a feeling in everyone I talked with that there was a need for an immediate response, and there was a feeling of camaraderie and patriotism. Those feelings were replaced after a while with accusations of “Islamophobia” and the curious media blackout of the World Trade Center damage - after all, showing the images of people leaping to their deaths out of the upper stories might revive patriotic feelings and a sense of national community. When the inevitable war took off, many tried to undermine it.
No, I wouldn’t be surprised if an attack from the southern border led to our elites telling us not to be so judgmental about Hispanic people, and phony stories about hate crimes against illegal immigrants.
Eventually, of course, these kinds of political maneuvers take on a life of their own and get out of the control of its handlers, so who knows what will happen several decades out. I can easily see attempted politicide by those in power against “the extremists,” who would be us, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see liberals suddenly facing an American Pinochet, either. Who knows? All I can safely predict is that it won’t be pretty.
God help us.
