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.

Send members of ATF to jail for violation of existing gun laws

When did the law change? I was a police officer for 11 years and in all that time I was never allowed to violate the law for an investigation. Since when did the ATF become higher than the law? We have laws on the books that prohibit the sale of guns under a myriad of conditions, and I am more than a little convinced that some of those laws covered the sale of firearms in large numbers to suppliers to drug cartels. I understand the onus is on the higher ups in ATF for ordering it’s agents to just monitor the sale and track the guns and not stop the sales, but if we can’t get the higher ups, then we as the little people should go after the agents themselves. If we can effectively prosecute the agents themselves for letting the guns go, in violation of the law then they will stop obeying unlawful orders from higher ups.

While the supreme court has not been willing to hear a case on disobeying an unlawful order, it has gotten to the court right below the supreme court . The military has since the Nuremberg Trials been required to disobey unlawful orders.

This needs to be pushed into the supreme court because we have law enforcement officers every day that are put into that position. I while working patrol was asked to stop all motorcycles leaving the bar to check for baffles in their exhaust pipes. I had just gotten out of the academy a few months before and had not yet made probation but it was one of the things we were taught in the academy. The law held that you could stop traffic with the purpose of vehicle inspections but could not single out a specific type of vehicles. Ie. You could stop every vehicle and inspect, every other vehicle, or every tenth vehicle etc. but you couldn’t just pull motorcycles over and let all of the other vehicular traffic pass. I was told in my academy that if I did that, then I could be charged with a crime. I’m beginning to see that the Federal Agencies seem to not have that limitation, I just saw an ATF agent give a report that says he was told to let guns be sold to suspected gun traffickers, in bulk, and even told store owners not to stop the sale (see fast and furious guns).

I don’t want to see the agents on the street go to jail but don’t you think we should hold our civilian law enforcement to the same standards as we hold our military to? And further don’t you think we should hold the US Justice Department to these same standards, as it appears they were complacent in those orders even if they didn’t issue them.

“The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) 809.ART.90 (20), makes it clear that military personnel need to obey the "lawful command of his superior officer," 891.ART.91 (2), the "lawful order of a warrant officer", 892.ART.92 (1) the "lawful general order", 892.ART.92 (2) "lawful order". In each case, military personnel have an obligation and a duty to only obey Lawful orders and indeed have an obligation to disobey Unlawful orders, including orders by the president that do not comply with the UCMJ. The moral and legal obligation is to the U.S. Constitution and not to those who would issue unlawful orders, especially if those orders are in direct violation of the Constitution and the UCMJ.” (source;

Wake up Again

I have taken months off from this blog.  Tired and working all the time has made me not want to think.  I know this has made most of us feel the same way.  I see meetup groups that have no leader that will be closed down soon (I will say that some are political meetups where the sponsor lost his race) but others are meetups that are still as relevant as they were when they were created.  I think the difference is that there was a fervour around the meetups before the mid-term elections and now that the next election isn't until 2012, we are dozing again (I know I have been). 

I went to a Tea Party West training for blogging and getting your message out on Saturday which got my juices flowing again.  I may not be any more articulate than I've ever been, I may not have anything you want to hear but thanks to Bea Talor and the US Patriots meetup group, I'm awake and back.

I would also like to mention a friend's new Blog site, Bettye Gilmore attended the training at the same time I did and she started a site called, she posted her first post today and I'm very excited for her.  Good going Bettye.
