Fast and Furious "Gun Walking" and Illegal Immigration

Once in a while I find something that just connects, I'm not real bright or I'd have made this connection a long time ago.

I'm seeing a pot full of stories about the Gun Walking scandal and gun control, who knew it was being done, who didn't know, how long has it been going on, why was it allowed, etc...etc...etc.  This link will give you a good sample of how even the MSM is going after a story (when they don't have to make something up it's amazing how the sharks circle the blood)...sorry, my media bias.

I don't know the answers to the questions but now I'd like to add my questions to the mix.  I really don't like trying to ask questions like these because they tend to add to my paranoia and make me sound like a conspiracy nut (now I'm even questioning it) anyway...

How do you make the American people feel compassion for the illegal immigrants coming into this country?  Well if you are a President of Mexico, you work with a President of the United States and hatch a deal that makes Mexicans look like they are persecuted so we will feel compassion.  That's been done for years, 'they are just looking for a better life', 'they just want to do the jobs Americans won't do', 'they didn't choose to come here, their parents brought them', 'they are here, we can't just let them remain uneducated', 'they are sick and have no money, we can't turn them away', I've heard them all for years and worse yet I've bought it. 

After some time researching it I find that they come here because they are told they can get free money and services in the United States, they don't want to be Americans, they want to take back the land they lay claim to for Mexico.  Then the economy happened; now I'm pushing back as are many others so the compassion is fading.  I've come to realize what the end game is, and it isn't pretty for our country.  What I don't understand is the loyalty to Mexico, a government that keeps everyone except the few elite, poor as dirt (sorry sidebar). 

Now comes the American President (OK maybe not him but someone really, REALLY high up) that says we can violate our laws to "trace" guns going to Mexico.  I was in law enforcement for more than a decade (no I didn't graduate spell that as retire) and at NO time was I allowed to violate our laws for an investigation, I could call a wanted subject and lie to them ("hey this is Johnny John from XYZ radio station and you've won a hundred bucks, you just have to come to the station and show ID to claim it"), but not violate the law. 

Now throw in the fact that fewer and fewer Americans are feeling the Compassion for the illegal immigrants, because it is harder and harder to make a decent living in this country, and you have a crisis (if you are hoping to increase compassion for illegals).  "Never let a crisis go to waste", and I'll further that comment by adding "when you can ramp it up".

Now it gets a little dicey, if you let thousands of guns "walk" across the Mexican border and ramp up the violence in Mexico, won't the American people feel worse for those Innocent illegal immigrants?  Hey this is a "two birds" moment...make the American people feel bad for the illegals and as a bonus, bolster the failing gun control advocates, nice little picture developing here isn't it?

Again I don't say the President knew about it (he says he didn't) but I did know one that said "I am not a crook", and another that said "I have never had sex with that woman", and yet another that said "Iraq has WMD's".  Now I'm not saying that President Obama knew anything at all about this, I'm just saying lets not give him a pass on it because he is the President.

Budget Cut Fight / Illegial Immigration

I've been ignoring my duties again, I've had a cold but that's just an excuse, my brain isn't processing the way it should.  I would give a couple of examples here but my brain isn't processing the way it should...see I can build in excuses as I go. 

Well enough BS.  I got into reading and watching some things that have been sent to me lately and have come to the conclusion that our country is nothing more than a big chess board to the idiots in congress.  We have the new Republicans in congress that want to cut a mere 51 billion dollars from the budget to extend the operation for another ??? weeks/months.  We have Democrats that want to let parts of the government shut down so they can blame the Tea Party Patriots and the freshmen congressmen, we have illegal immigrants that don't want to live in the United States, and we have government agency's doling out over 100 billion dollars a year to support illegal immigrants...hey guess what.

I've got a solution...since the illegals don't want to live in this country anyway, the Republicans want to cut 51 billion dollars from the budget, the Democrats don't want to cut the budget at all, lets do this.

Stop spending 100 billion to support illegals, the Republicans get their 51 billion (plus), the Democrats don't have to look bad to their base and the Mexicans living here and benefiting from our government handouts can go back to Mexico where they want to live.

ATF and Homeland Security

Homeland Security is in charge of our borders (org chart), doing a good job, bad job, no job at all, is all a matter for discussion but I would be remiss in my obligation in writing this at all if I didn't acknowledge there it is.

Having said that, don't you think they would be interested in the guns that another agency in the federal government are letting cross our southern border?

Why would the legislators in Washington be calling for the heads of gun show operators or gun store owners if in fact the ATF are letting more guns across the border than those targets are? I call the owners of gun stores and operators of gun shows targets because of the way some people are going after them. If you don't know what a target is just go to one of those gun stores or gun shows and you can buy as many as you want, without a background check (so far).

Now back on topic, why isn't Janet Napolitano screaming her head off about this, could it be that the ATF's 'investigation' is part and parcel of a bigger plan to open the borders, break the back of the United States economy and institute gun control.

Guns are a big problem for the government if the desire is to control everything, if the government wants to open the borders, and despite what the administration claims, they do. They have to rid the United States the ability to resist. I know that there are people that say ‘what good would your 9mm pistol do against the heavy firepower of the military?’ and to that I’d say take a look at what Afghans are doing with a few AK’s, grenade launchers and a few caves. They did it to the Russians and are now doing it to us.

The government is trying to open the borders and promote gun control through the UN small arms treaty, they are trying to do that through the ATF allowing guns across the border which escalates the violence at the border, and they are doing that through letting 84% of the 448,000 illegal immigrants caught last year, go un-prosecuted.

How do we want our country to look, this year, next year? If you have a vision of how you think it should look then you need to get involved. The Mexican Nationals coming into this country illegally do not want to assimilate into this country, they are loyal to Mexico and want to make this country part of Mexico. I for the life of me can't understand why they are that fiercely loyal to Mexico with the standard of living they have there but then I guess it isn't all because of our standard of living that I'm loyal to the USA.
