Even rodents run away from these two. Some would write, “even other rodents run away from these two” — which also works well to describe the disgusting performance from the White House Rose Garden earlier this week by Mexico’s President, Felipe Calderon, as he visited this nation, the U.S.A. Calderon was met by the Contrarian-In-Office, Barack Obama in a dual display of something akin to a junk-dump, cosmetically enhanced to appear as something of value, this rude, crude denigration of our nation by people who you might, at least, expect not to break the plates when you invite them into your home (after paying their fares to get there).
(Select image above to view larger file size.)
Calderon and Obama glowered and condemned this nation — our Constitutional structure as a nation. They glowered and denied our nation’s sovereignity (“we are not defined by borders” gloated Obama) but eagerly affirmed Mexico as “sovereign” nation — and that was but a very small portion of a great big pile of donkey-shiite from both of them.
Many a former U.S. President would have ushered such a person out of the White House if not onto a waiting plane and out of the nation (at least yanked the microphone privilege) but, no, there was Barack Obama in the Rose Garden — and the next day, there were the Democrats in Congress — applauding and rewarding such scurrilous, insulting, threatening, ingrate behavior by another nation, right there in the Capital of our nation.
Recall that Prime Minister Netanyahu when visiting (or trying to visit) the White House didn’t get so much as a mutual dinner with Obama, the Dalia Lama was ushered out the backdoor through the walkway heaped with trash, the Queen of England received an IPod (with Obama’s speeches on them) and a grubby hug from the wife, Obama was “too tired” to share a meal with France’s President Sarkozy (I get the impression that Obama doesn’t like to “eat with Jews“), but he was eager to stand “shoulder to shoulder” with Calderon as he insulted the U.S. based upon lies before the public. Next day, Congressional Democrats were eager to jump up yet again with thunderous applause for same, while in many other circumstances, Obama can’t maintain himself upright, except when he’s golfing weekly and playing around with other balls.
Has the Audacity of Dope taken over our federal government? Certainly it has taken over what at some point may have been character among Democrats, Obama among them.
Moreover, after many years gaining an education in the U.S., Calderon wouldn’t so much as politely speak English in our nation but insisted on delivering his acerbic nasties in Spanish — we the public understand that Calderon surely knew he was doing so for purposes of being intentionally insensitive (or, to be blunt, he was being rude and intentionally so and that was even before one considered his rude, nasty remarks).
Then Calderon goes to Congress and delivers his badly-spoken (at least he tried this time) lying, bash-America lecture, and the lying, bash-America Congressional Democrats responded with several standing ovations. It was a disgusting, utterly contemptible display to behold: by Calderon, his ungrateful, ingratiating, deceitful charges against the U.S.A. and the equally ungrateful, deceitfully charging Democrats so pleased to enjoy the lying-bash-America lecture by Calderon, as so often before by Obama. Bash America, get a lush State Dinner from Barack and the Democrats.
However, the wonder isn’t that a visiting guy as President of another nation would be so exceptionally rude here as Calderon was, nor that the predictably treacherous Democrats would so enjoy rewarding such, but that we have a President and Crew who would be so eager to both reward and participate in such.
Did Barack Obama take his Oath of Office for the Presidency in jest? Because he continues to prove that he doesn’t take it seriously and that, indeed, he not only doesn’t take it seriously but that he appears to loathe the Oath and the document — our Constitution — he swore in that Oath to “protect and defend” and to “preserve and uphold”.
The flint being used by Obama and his treacherous Left (that includes Calderon with his blasts of lies) is Arizona’s SB 1070. It’s being reamed by the Left (Obama, Calderon, Congressional Democrats, Leftwing-associated interest groups) as POSSIBLY or potentially “enabling discrimination”.
ANYthing can “enable discrimination” and every single individual discriminates in every day of our lives: watch this channel, reject that food, don’t turn there, turn here, better neighborhood, less security concerns, reject that proposal, accept that proposal, return this call, don’t return that call, vote for him, vote for her, not for them…
Be that as it may, the point on a legal basis, however, what’s “scribed in stone” as to Arizona’s SB 1070 is that there cannot be any use of “nation of origin” or “race” or “ethnicity” as cause to question anyone by law enforcement.
And, in fact, those motives are expressly forbidden by SB 1070 — law enforcement there is forbidden to use those motives as reason to stop and question anyone as to immigration or “citizenship status”. Law Enforcement can, however, pose those questions to anyone they’ve already stopped for other possible/likely violations, at an officer’s discretion: it’s an “in the course of” situation, if law enforcement wants to question you, they do so and if, during that questioning, they have reason to question your “immigration status” then they can do so then, but not as a primary motive.
Compare that, however, to our nation’s federal immigration laws, which DO allow law enforcement to question anyone on the basis of race, ethnicity, nation of origin and more. That is, these aspects — that which Calderon and Obama and the Democrats and their Leftwing groups call “discrimination” — are allowed to be questioned by law enforcement under federal immigration laws.
Irrationally, however, the criticism is lobbed on Arizona’s SB 1070 — and the reason why that’s taking place is essentially deceitful politics being waged for purposes of discrediting (or trying to) any enforcement of immigration laws (because the federal isn’t enforcing them and the current bunch representing the federal is working to bring anyone to ruin who asserts that these laws should be enforced, such as the state of Arizona, among others, as also by the majority of the American people who support Arizona’s SB 1070 and enforcing against illegal aliens).
Yet there’s no denigration of the federal laws (that have been in effect for decades now) but Arizona is being denigrated by the Left as the Left both lies about Arizona’s SB 1070 and lies by omission about “possible discrimination” as being some recent emergency-type-cause.
The bottom line is people in general are not being taken aside by law enforcement in the state of Arizona nor out of it because they “look like” some “illegal alien”; however, their presence as aliens in the U.S. is a legal offense and is taken into account when they’re questioned for other reasons (point-of-entry agents are the exception, when documentation is required in most cases for entry into the U.S., regardless of color, kind, whatever).
What is going on is a simple deflection-agitation game by Obama (disgusting beyond words as he’s in the White House at the present and there’s at least some expectation that the man/woman in that Office would be honoring that Oath of Office he/she took; in Obama’s case, he clearly violates it and has on numerous occasions, seems quite proud of himself for doing so, too). They DO “get it” as to what Arizona’s law does, they just want the agitation they’re seeking by lying about SB 1070 and pushing to derail enforement of federal laws, as also honoring the obligations of their jobs in the federal government.
What their objective appears to be — Obama’s, Administration’s, Democrats, Leftwing associated groups — is to inflict as much public harms on anyone in the U.S. who seeks to enforce our Constitution, especially as to immigration and other aspects that potentially restrict or impugn foreign interests from harming our nation.
That arrives at a grim conclusion: Obama doesn’t want to protect this nation and the rest of the Democrat “associates” are eager to assist in claiming they’re serious about defense and laws while they are entirely not so, not when those laws and that defense might strengthen this nation.
Whatever good Calderon might be doing in Mexico, for Mexico (so say some in the media, that he’s making headway in contending with Mexican and Latin American/South American drug cartels — meanwhile, I wonder if he’s simply ‘looking good’ by comparison with the much worse that is Mexico, meaning, Calderon as standard on anything beneficial indicates very bad overall conditions that provides him a push upward by degrees of “less bad”), because what we, the citizens of the U.S.A., see and hear from this guy is that he’s scurrying the little pathway to the big pile of junk called amnesty for illegal aliens and more billions of U.S. dollars for Calderon in Mexico.
These are not things beneficial to the U.S.A. — forget Calderon’s bad manners for a moment, look at what he’s requesting (by way of insulting us, whatever) — these are not things or positions that are beneficial to the U.S.A.
Mexico’s verbose President, Felipe Calderon , is the largest contributor of illegal aliens living and working in the United States today. While no one knows exactly how many Mexicans reside in this country illegally, the advocates of “open borders” claim the number of illegal Mexican aliens in The U.S. is between 10 and 15 million.
Yet, conservatives put the number of illegal aliens living in the U.S. at 25 to 30 million. While visiting the U.S. this week, the head of Mexico’s corrupt government slammed Arizona for passing it’s immigration enforcement law. Calderon, standing right next to President Barack Obama, blasted Arizona as if he were the President of the United States. But instead of Obama telling Calderon to “cool his jets,” Mr. Apologist joined Calderon in denigrating Arizonians.
Both Presidents failed to tell American citizens that thanks to the Federal Reserve Bank and the financial industry, Mexicans living and working in the U.S. transfer about $25 billion to the Mexican economy. In addition, Mexican criminals and moochers cost taxpaying citizens and legal immigrants almost $350 billion per year, according to syndicated columnist Frosty Wooldridge.
And America’s banking industry is aiding and abetting these lawbreakers and there appears to be no one in Washington, D.C. — including President Obama — interested in conducting an investigation into this corruption.
…Remittances sent by Mexicans topped $15.5 billion in the first few months of this year, 20 percent higher than the amount sent during the same period the previous year, according to Mexico’s central bank, and this year’s annual figure is expected to hit a new record. Savings scraped together by nannies, painters and others working abroad are now Mexico’s second-largest source of foreign revenue, after oil exports and ahead of tourism, according to analysts interviewed by the WSJ…
My nominee for ‘Hypocrite of the Week’ – President Calderon
— by Juanell Garrett, Kansas City Star
…President Felipe Calderon of Mexico came to Washington.
On Wednesday he appeared with President Obama on the White House lawn and said, “In Mexico, we are and will continue being respectful of the internal policies of the United States and its legitimate right to establish in accordance to its Constitution whatever laws it approves. But we will retain our firm rejection to criminalize migration so that people that work and provide things to this nation will be treated as criminals. And we oppose firmly the S.B. 1070 Arizona law given in fair principles that are partial and discriminatory.” (From transcript, courtesy of the Chicago Sun-Times.)
Yesterday Calderon appeared before Congress and got a standing “O” from the Democrats when he condemned the Arizona law. (See here at 2:10) Attorney General Eric Holder was the last one to stand which made me wonder, “Did the dude finally get around to reading the bill?”
So why am I calling the president to the south a hypocrite? Have you ever looked at the Mexican Constitution? Chapter 3, page 16 on the link, deals with foreigners. I quote: “Article 33. Foreigners are those who do not possess the qualifications set forth in Article 30. They are entitled to the guarantees granted by Chapter I, Title I, of the present Constitution; but the Federal Executive shall have the exclusive power to compel any foreigner whose remaining he may deem inexpedient to abandon the national territory immediately and without the necessity of previous legal action. Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country.”
Do you doubt that Calderon deserves the “Hypocrite of the Week” title (– Continued).
A Sickening Spectacle
— by Guy Benson
Yesterday, the leader of a foreign nation — visiting Washington as a guest of the American people — stood before the United States Congress and denounced a democratically enacted state law. Apparently taking his cues from his American counterparts, the Mexican president condemned a bill that either (a) he has not read, or (b) he has read, but chooses to intentionally distort for political purposes. For example, during his remarks, Mr. Calderon incorrectly asserted that Arizona’s law “introduce[s] a terrible idea of using racial profiling as a basis for law enforcement.” The legislation explicitly forbids racial profiling.
If they’re his people, well what are they doing in the United States? If they’re his people, why do they leave Mexico, abandon his country, to live under the jurisdiction and the laws of the United States?
Calderon surely knows the answers to both queries — but he’s content to overlook them and shift blame for his own country’s dysfunction so long as the gravy train of American remittances continues to prop up its economy. Perhaps Mr. Calderon also forgot to prepare a passage in his speech excoriating his own nation’s draconian and discriminatory (by comparison, and by his own standard) treatment of illegal immigrants…(— Continued).
