Observations From The Margin

-The President is asking for $2 billion to fight the recent surge in illegals crossing the Southern border. Why would anyone trust this administration in regards to enforcing immigration laws? When Arizona tried to enforce Federal laws, the President had his justice department sue to stop them.

-The flood of illegal crossings reminds me of Fast and Furious only in reverse. In Fast and Furious, Government ATF agents told legal gun dealers to illegally sell guns to Mexican drug cartels, for the purpose of blaming the violence in Mexico on American guns crossing the border. This would give the anti-second amendment administration leverage to push for more gun control. Their plans were ruined when Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was killed with one of the weapons supplied by the ATF,s operation. With the current Southern border crisis, illegals are sending their young children across the border because they were told by international and local media, and family members in the U.S. that our Government was issuing immigration “permisos” (free passes) upon arrival. Of course our Government publicised this. The administration will use the flood of illegal immigrants as a crisis to try to get their immigration agenda passed into law. This administration would only enforce the parts of any new immigration law that they want enforced, and would ignore what they don’t like.

-Should these children be sent back to their families in their home countries? Yes: The precedent was set in the Elian Gonzalez case during the Clinton administration. Elian Gonzalez’s mother drowned when she tried to get her son to the U.S.. The INS placed Elian with parental relatives in Miami. He was taken away at gun point when courts ruled that his father, not his relatives, could petition for asylum {a temporary refuge granted political offenders}. Many made the argument that he would be better off with his father in the communist utopia of Cuba, than he would be with his relatives in the U.S., so I would assume, for the sake of consistency, these same people would use the same reasoning concerning these children.

-Every administrations tries to get outcomes they desire. If they can’t get it through legislation, or if legislation is passed that they don’t like, they take it to court. It they don’t get the result they want in court, they use executive power to either change the law, or they just don’t enforce the laws they are legally mandated to enforce.

-Here is why the IRS scandal is worse than Nixon and Watergate. The Nixon scandal was political dirty tricks between two political parties. The present IRS scandal is a case of Government bureaucrats using their power to intimidate individuals who wanted to “peacefully assemble and petition the Government for a redress of grievances”, as stated in the 1st Amendment of the Constitution. The IRS violated the constitutional rights of individuals.

-The IRS recently agreed to pay a $50,000 in damages to NOM for leaking  donors names to rival groups. Who do you think will pay this fine? Tax payers of course, because the IRS is funded by us. So let me see if I got this right. A portion of the taxes paid by the tax payers who sued the IRS, is going toward the fine that the IRS owes to these very same tax payers. That kind of punishment has no chance of constraining future abuses of power.  The individuals in the IRS who broke the law should go to jail, because that is the only constraint for curtailing future IRS abuses. Why do you think the IRS bureaucrats were so cocky when they testified in front of congress? They know nothing is going to happen to them. The rule of law doesn’t apply to our bureaucratic betters. If this bureaucratic lawlessness continues, we won’t comply with their edicts, and it won’t be pretty.

– All of the recent push backs in the Supreme Court against the Obama administration are all actions taken by regular citizens. Non of these actions are results of the Republican establishment having any stones. This progressive Marxist ideology can only be defeated by a bottom up transformation by citizens understanding that individual  freedom is the cure for the problems created by years of  intervention through Government central planners of both parties.
