100% Accurate


Oliver is an Obama blogger and a writer for Media Matters. He always has the latest OFA talking points. Apparently they have decided that telling the truth is “dangerous rhetoric” these days.

What is taking place on our southern border is an invasion by hordes of people from Mexico and Central America, many or whom are carrying diseases. Those words are 100% accurate. It is a major crisis.

Democrats and progressives would prefer that we only use nicer sounding words and phrases when we talk about the crisis. Words like “refugees” or “undocumented workers.” If they can control the language we use then they can control the debate.

We have borders for a reason. The Western Roman Empire fell in 476 AD because they could not or would not control their borders and they were overrun with invading hordes of barbarians. Those barbarians were people too.

There was a time when we could accept huge numbers of immigrants. That was a time when we had open frontiers, lots of unclaimed land and a rapidly growing industrial economy that needed workers.

Times have changed. We have a stagnant economy and high unemployment. We simply cannot absorb millions of new immigrants every year. It is NOT about racism. We could not absorb millions of immigrants from England, Ireland and Germany either.

This latest crisis was caused by the words and actions of Barack Obama. He led these people to believe that if they came here now Obama would let them stay permanently. Now they’re here and (surprise, surprise) Obama doesn’t know what to do with them. Many of them are unaccompanied children.

Yet somehow this is all the Republicans’ fault.

    If you want to see some immediate action on securing our border start dumping these immigrants in the neighborhoods of limousine liberals and urban progressives.

      I think Cambridge, MA should take a least 1000 kids. Elizabeth Warren has some spare bedrooms.

      • elliesmom says:

        And aren’t most college dorms mostly empty for the summer? There must be thousands of empty beds available for the next two months at least.

        I think Nancy P. has several homes. Most of our ruling elite do. It should be sufficient to house the newly arrived.

          The vineyard would be a very healthful home for children. And they could pick the grapes and stomp them too! Such fun for the kids.

    • votermom says:

      I tag all tweets about the border hordes with #childtrafficking

    • Constance says:

      I would donate to a fund to bus these new immigrants to the neighborhoods of the limousine liberals. I also think it should also be illegal to set up a feeding station or flop house more than a half mile from your established residence. Because the rich liberals have always traveled out of their own neighborhoods to do their “charity”. God forbid the unwashed masses should end up in their parts of town.

    • swanspirit says:

      I have some very specific neighborhoods in mind!

    • Ann says:

      They are looking for hotels to place these children, and some of the hotels are in decent areas. They stopped at a local ‘burb a few weeks ago to look at a “vacant” hotel is a pricey bedroom community. Problem was the hotel has just had millions in rehab work done the last two years, and not only wasn’t vacant, but was completely booked. Ooops.

      This is in NYS.

      • Lulu says:

        The county judge (which is the county executive in Texas) has volunteered Dallas County to host 2000 iillegal border crossing children. He is well known for quoting his eight year old daughter who many think writes Coca-a-Cola ad songs (I’d like to give the world a a glass of organic milk, stuff like that.) and lives in Highland Park close to W (cheapest house in the area about $800,000). He announced it at the Dem state convention with many attendees agog at his idiocy and how it looks for upcoming elections. Dallas Morning News took the story down from last night probably because the comments were 99% negative. http://www.dallasnews.com/news/metro/20140628-clay-jenkins-wants-dallas-county-to-house-child-immigrants.ece

  2. I so miss the people who figured out how to work with the Republicans instead of just whining about them….

  3. The Klown says:

    Hot Air:

    More than 52,000 children have entered the country illegal in recent months, many of them coming into the U.S. through South Texas. Former Zapata County Sheriff Gonzales, who now works as a consult with law enforcement agencies along the Texas border, says space is running out to house the children and adults that are coming across.

    “The local governments are being overwhelmed because of the possibilities for diseases. There are people that are being apprehended that are coming in with warrants for murders or prior convictions for child abuse, and these are the guys that are coming in the same groups with 12 year olds and 5 year olds,” says Zapata. “They’re looking at some centers in the valley… abandoned buildings where they’re going to put fences inside the buildings to create detention cells and just throw people in there. “…

    “That tells you that when you’ve got kids coming in from some of these countries where they don’t have great health systems, we gotta watch out,” says Cuellar. “I’ve talked to border patrol down in McAllen. They’ve seen TB; they’ve seen chicken pox; they’ve seen scabies. And according to Border Patrol, 4 or 5 of their agents have tested positive for those diseases.”

    Earlier this week, Vickers took a photo of a man on her front porch. She said the man had a Tango Blast tattoo.

    Tango Blast is the largest and one of the most dangerous gangs operating in the state, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

    “I sometimes have to take a step back and realize the jeopardy that could happen out here,” Vickers said.

    It’s not just gang members that worry Vickers. Border Patrol agents arrested a wanted murderer near Falfurrias and sex offenders in the Rio Grande Valley last weekend.

    “They’re everywhere,” Vickers said.

  4. 1539days says:

    This is just another step in the stupid “a person is not illegal” argument. No one’s mere existence is illegal, but there are criminals because they commit illegal acts. This is the result of this administration trying to reunite illegals and giving effective amnesty to kids who have been in the country almost all of their lives. Adults south of the border figure that sending their kids to the US will make the kids legal almost immediately and the need to reunite families will get the parents there shortly after.

    Mexico used to put a lot of effort into keeping Central Americans out of THEIR country, but the gigantic magnet Obama created is thwarting even those efforts. Frankly, immigration reform has failed. We don’t just need border security first, we only need border security. Immigration reform is something we need to shelve until the next decade.

    • Constance says:

      Well the only reform the immigration reform people want is to let anyone come in to the USA who wants in and then cover all the new people with government benefits. That just won’t work for our country. I’m not as opposed to simply taking over Mexico and annexing it to the USA. That way we would get all their resources as well as their unwashed masses and criminals and gang members. Seriously who’s going to stop us if the USA pulls a Putin and takes over their neighbor country?

  5. mothy67 says:

    I believe this entire thing was orchestrated by the administration to paint the R’s as callous bad guys by using children to prey upon the emotions of the most generous nation on the face of the planet. Granny over a cliff, hungry kids, Sandra fluke can’t buy lube and birth control because of the meanies, and blah blah. Epic fail. They always resort to emotions. IRS hearings?
    He couldn’t get what he wanted passed so he toyed with children’s lives and the safety of American citizens to get his own way. Supposed to be see what the big conservatives did.

    • Lulu says:

      Totally agree. It is a Democratic made crisis. Politico has a semi-lucid step by step article at http://www.politico.com//story/2014/06/how-immigration-reform-died-108374.html
      They have been planning it for several years. One of the funny things is that Obama played the Hispanic open border groups like chumps. They had the time line all figured out but Obama screwed it up with his other scandals taking up too much time and attention pushing it into primary season, then Brat kicked the shit out of one of the main collaborators Cantor. Next the planned and staged influx of pathetic children (used cruelly as subhuman pawns) was high jacked by cartels and the consenting government of Mexico and Central America, and Obama kept on vacationing and dawdling. I am thinking of it as the Central American “Spring”.

      • DandyTIger says:

        Funnily I’ve seen so many Dems upset about that Cantor loss, that I figured it must be a good thing, no matter who Brat really was. Apparently libertarians are now the most evil group on the planet.

        • Lulu says:

          Cantor was all in on the immigration reform. His wife is on some Chamber of Commerce boards. He did the humanitarian talking and she did the cheap labor side. He and his immigration cronies thought he had it made in the shade and it was virtually a done deal. NOT! His wife looked pole axed on that podium when he conceded and much more upset than he was.

  7. The Klown says:

    Sick fucks are everywhere.

  8. sick in bed the last two days so I have indulged myself by downloading the kindle version of “Blood Feud” by Edward Klein and it is a very fun read!!! It is the best feeling in the world to read about how much hatred there is between those two camps and even if some of the material may be suspect, much of it isn’t. Great entertainment….

  9. Lulu says:

    Most residents of the US don’t care as long as it doesn’t affect them. But when a government and people give up a border they are also giving up sovereignty of the areas overrun which runs into additional legal problems. Why should areas in which sovereignty has been ceded be required to follow federal law or pay federal taxes? I think the primary reason to the objections to “invasion” terminology is that the first job of the federal government is national defense. The focus of the debate is about to swing around to a White House that refuses to carry out our national defense which is not just a high crime but treasonous. I think some of the Vile Progs are catching on to this since their manufactured humanitarian crisis has backfired so spectacularly. They first instinct is to change or control language.

    • lyn says:

      ^This^ Having open borders is crazy.

      • Lulu says:

        Open borders means no country essentially. It turns into no man’s land or a completely lawless place. I do get tired of a certain ilk claiming Texas wants to secede. It appears to me that we are being tossed out by not following the legal obligation to control the invading hordes. Homeland Security wanted to keep all of the illegals in Texas (as a targeted and abandoned state) but they couldn’t find enough to lease from because landlords didn’t think they would pay them or local health and zoning laws would be violated so they are shipping some of them out or releasing them with NO health screening because that is not their job. It is occurring to localities who may get influxes that THEY are going to have to educate them with local tax dollars with zero local benefit.

        • lyn says:

          Texas is ground zero now, and I support whatever Texas needs to do to protect her borders.

        • 49erDweet says:

          It’s also more than duplicitous for the feds to arbitrarily alter agreements on joint operations and responsibilities. depending on locales. Favored states get one level, Disfavored another. Fastest road to insurrection! The WH has vastly overrated it’s power and seriously underestimated TX and AZ. Before this is over we’re gonna see Feds incarcerated locally for conspiracy and maladministration.

          • lyn says:

            Yeah, it’s obvious to us. Would love to see the Feds arrested.

          • Constance says:

            The Federal government is run from a Northeastern perspective. Because of this the Federal government is not liked by Citizens in western, mid western and southern states. People on the northeast coast don’t seem to realize how despised the Feds are and how dangerous this is to the country. The east coast Ivy indoctrinated have a lock on the Presidency and the Courts. They have figured out how to stall and override the Congress which is the only institution most regions of the country have any influence on.

          • 49erDweet says:

            Stalling and ignoring lasts just so long. I think the ivies will soon rue their arrogance.

          • Monster from the Id says:

            Y’all might wanna hold your horses. My people, including a great-great-grandfather of mine, tried something like that 153 years ago. It did not work out well for us. 😦

            That’s what my great grandmother said, too, but hope springs eternal.:-)

    Few Young Illegal Immigrants Tested for HIV

    http://www.krgv.com/news/few-young-illegal-immigrants-tested-for-hiv/

    “He said some of those children may have contracted the disease during their journey from Central America.

    Lopez said most families don’t realize the dangers their children are exposed to when they make the journey north.

    “(They) don’t realize the exploitation that happens to children on a 2,000-mile trek. We’ve had reports of youth who have been exploited … violated. It does happen,” he said.”

    FOR POLITICAL CAPITAL. SICKENING

    Going to the village art fair. Have a great day, everyone!

    • Lulu says:

      Buy something and support a local artist! Have fun!

      • leslie says:

        I did have fun and I did buy something(s)! There were many beautiful things there: paintings, photography, metal work, pottery, ceramics. Even the music was wonderful. I love our local art fairs. It’s a time to just let go of everything that feels wrong. And I always renew old friendships. Everyone seems to turn out for these events. (These fairs and the weekly Farmers’ Market.) I love summer here. 🙂

        I would say this stunt of instigating a massive invasion was one of the biggest political miscalculations of all time. And they, including clueless Nancy, know it. Expect another cover-up.

    On Facebook, you may be a guinea pig and not know it.

    Facebook is the best human research lab ever. There’s no need to get experiment participants to sign pesky consent forms as they’ve already agreed to the site’s data use policy. A team of Facebook data scientists are constantly coming up with new ways to study human behavior through the social network. When the team releases papers about what it’s learned from us, we often learn surprising things about Facebook — such as the fact that it can keep track of the status updates we never actually post. Facebook has played around with manipulating people before — getting 60,000 to rock the vote in 2012 that theoretically wouldn’t have otherwise — but a recent study shows Facebook playing a whole new level of mind gamery with its guinea pigs users. As first noted by Animal New York, Facebook’s data scientists manipulated the News Feeds of 689,003 users, removing either all of the positive posts or all of the negative posts to see how it affected their moods. If there was a week in January 2012 where you were only seeing photos of dead dogs or incredibly cute babies, you may have been part of the study. Now that the experiment is public, people’s mood about the study itself would best be described as “disturbed.”
