A Drop In The Bucket

More Border Bullshit


$26 Billion for teachers and medicaid

$600 Million to protect the borders



This is an insult. It’s not even smoke and mirrors. It’s a puff of mist and a little shiny bit of tin foil.


The Senate on Thursday voted to hire 1,000 more U.S. Border Patrol agents as part of a $600 million border security bill, acting swiftly in the hours before they left to face constituents during their five-week summer vacation.

Sen. Charles E. Schumer, the New York Democrat who is spearheading his party’s immigration efforts, said the money shows Congress is committed to border security as a down payment on eventually legalizing illegal immigrants.

“I’m for comprehensive immigration reform. I think that’s the way to go. And I’m continuing to work on it,” Mr. Schumer said. “But we’ve always said we should do border security first. This is border security first.”

Fuck you Chucky. You pro-amnesty cock sucker. $600 million isn’t even peanuts. It’s one peanut, and a moldy one at that.

Republicans, led by Sen. John McCain, had offered their own proposals which would deploy more agents to the border and expand detention of illegal border crossers, but Mr. McCain said Mr. Schumer’s bill was “a significant step forward.”

Fuck you too Juan McAmnesty. Turncoat. Bread yeast can look at the words “Republicans, lead by Sen. John McCain” and realize there’s something wrong. You are no Republican. You’re barely even a RINO. You’re a back stabbing liberal sycophant. We don’t like you, and we sure as hell don’t trust you. And when it comes to border security and illegal aliens, your track record proves that every word out of your mouth is a lie.

Hey, remember Bush’s border fence? Remember that bad joke? Recall how it was going to be mostly “virtual” fencing, and use cameras and UAVs and stuff instead of landmines and concertina wire? Did you ever wonder what happened to that? Well, all these years later, and it’s almost complete. Almost. Except for several dozens major holes, and an empty area across almost the entire Texas border. Fat lot of good that does. gee whiz. And don’t forget how Bush, and Obama too, both sent extra National Guard troops down there to help out. And armed them only with cell phones. No guns, no bullets. No use.

Senate Democrats said they’ve now proved they are “serious” about security and that it’s time to restart talks on legalizing illegal immigrants.

The Senate called a special session in the middle of its five-week August break just and passed the bill with the consent of all 100 senators. The House approved it earlier this week, and Mr. Obama has signaled he will sign the measure, calling border security “a top priority.”

The bill funds 1,000 new U.S. Border Patrol agents, as well as 250 Customs and Border Protection officers and two more unmanned aerial vehicles.

Proved? You ain’t proved a damn thing. When I see dozens and dozens of extra long passenger trains running every day, shipping illegals to points south, I’ll start to believe in “serious”. When I see TV news footage of the 10,000 illegals arrested and deported EVERY SINGLE DAY I’ll have the smallest bit of faith in your actions. When ICE starts doing it’s job, and the feds stop blocking states like Arizona from trying to pick up the slack, then we’ll have some proof. Some Change that I can Hope I can believe in. Until then, you’re all a bunch of lying pansies.

It’s taken the House and Senate several tries over the past months to agree on the contents of the bill and how it should be paid for. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., said that throughout this legislative back-and-forth she had worked “to make sure that Congress knows that we are fed up with the federal government’s failure along the border.” She said that with Senate action, “at least this time, they are listening to us.”

Immigration and Customs Enforcement director John Morton, on a visit to Phoenix, said his agency removed a record number of illegal immigrants from the country in the fiscal year ending last September. According to ICE numbers, some 387,000 were removed, of whom 35 percent were convicted criminals. Through the beginning of August this year, about half the 294,000 who have been deported were criminals, also a record level.

This is the same John Morton who got a unanimous no-confidence vote from all the ICE worker bees. The same one who just made a visit to the southwest that was derided by top state officials as a BS photo-op. So should we believe his numbers? I think not.

Don’t let this pissant publicity stunt fool you. Washington is NOT serious about border security. Neither side of the aisle. They WANT the US to become a turd world cesspool overrun with non-assimilating foreigners. They WANT the new slave class. Because they are the ELITE and they are in charge. And you, peasant, can pay for it. And you’ll be so impressed that these elected liars made the unprecedented EXTREME EFFORT to come back to work in the middle of their FIVE WEEK SUMMER VACATION (which has nothing to do with their fall recess, their mid-winter break, or their spring recess you know) for a couple of days, that you’ll run to the polls in November and vote them all in again.

I haven’t been on an actual vacation since 1999. Screw all these bastards; vote ‘em out. This bill is nothing. And Chucky Schumer is an oozing sack of snake oil. You want secure borders? Hey, guess what? Our military is involved in wars in desert nations. Against non-uniformed insurgents. I’d think border patrol would be great training for them. Especially since Mexico seems to be having something like a civil war just the other side of the wire.


UPDATE:
Oh you dirty low down motor forkers. You summuna beaches.

Via Volokh via Malkin, it turns out that this $600 million is being paid for by a) increasing the H-1B visa charge, which violate a WTO agreement and will be shot down, and thus provide no funding; and b) taking money away from the border fence building project.

Much was made of the fact that these increases were “paid for.” That’s true, sort of.  It looks as though a lot of it was “paid for” by canceling hundreds of millions of dollars in fence-building and air security spending.
...
But there could easily be a WTO challenge to the new fee.  In a dumb move that hasn’t recently been repeated, the US long ago agreed at the WTO that it would always allow at least 65,000 H-1B visa holders to enter the country.  I would not be surprised to see India challenge the new fee on a couple of WTO grounds

So we’re getting “added” border security by NOT building more fence, and instead spending the money on UAVs, which the FAA won’t allow anyone to fly over US territory. Bottom line: less border security, no actual added funding. In other words, this is total bullshit legislation. All is does is shuffle the money around a little, robbing Peter to pay Peter. A photo-op for the left as we go into election season. Well, that settles it! Everybody grab a broom, it’s Shenanigans!

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
