Get it done
Texas Gov. Rick Perry is expected to announce plans on Monday to secure the southern border by sending in 1,000 National Guard troops, the Christian Science Monitor reports.
An internal memo listed details regarding the deployment, noting that the total force would gradually build up to 1,000 troops stationed in the Rio Grande Valley. The troops would join alongside the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), which has already been on the ground fighting human trafficking and drug smuggling since June.
Groups engaged in trafficking and other activities on the U.S. side of the border have considerably stepped up their operations throughout the entirety of the border crisis, benefiting from the welcome distraction it provides.
The Left, of course, will soil themselves in despair, but, this is the right move, and one within Perry’s authority
“If the federal government does not do its constitutional duty to secure the southern border of the United States, the state of Texas will do it,” Perry said Sunday at an event in Iowa. Texas Republican Rep. Louis Gohmert concurred, adding that governor Perry can even go as far as taking over the whole border.
Hopefully other border states will follow suit
Poor John Kerry, no one seems to appreciate his incopetence
As tensions continue to escalate in the Middle East, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is heading back to the region to continue pursuing a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas — but he may not be welcome this time around.
Former Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren believes that America’s presence isn’t welcome at all. During an interview with an Israel news network on Monday, Oren said that Kerry coming to the region is “to our chagrin.” Oren cited Kerry’s history of failed attempts at peace negotiations in the region, and strained U.S. relations with Egypt, as well as the Obama administration’s poor relationship with both Israel and Palestine.
Negotiated peace between Hamas and Israel is not possible. Only complete military victory over Hamas will do.
One of the things that the Gun Control Cult calls for frequently are laws that make it a crime to make a firearm accessible to children. This sounds good, until you remember that surely these laws would be written by those wishing to use such laws to punish gun owners who teach their children, especially teens how to use those guns. This story should remind us all that part of being a responsible gun owning parent is to teach your kids about guns, and yes, it could save their lives
SARASOTA, Fla – A 15-year-old fires warning shot at burglar and scares away thief.
It happened in the 4800 block of Sawyer Pine Road in Sarasota at around 12:30p.m. this afternoon.
According to a release from the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, the 15-year-old was home alone when he heard a person banging on the back door.
The teen saw the suspect at the back door attempting to break-in. The juvenile fired a shot with a shotgun in the area of the suspect and he fled the scene.
Of course, members of the Gun Control Cult will scoff at my suggesting this teen might have saved his life. But, who knows what the man trying to break in had in mind. Who knows what would have happened if the boy had not had an accessible firearm, and known how to use it. We don’t know, and thankfully the teen and his family will not have to find out.
A second note to those that say no one would ever support a law that would punish this teen’s parents. Do not fool yourself. A law mandating that firearms not be made accessible to a minor could be used in such a manner. All it would take would be an anti-gun DA to bring charges. And if you do not think such DA’s exist think again. And, if you think that the Gun Control Cult would never deliberately push such a law, or push such action think again. Remember that keeping kids safe is not their goal. Controlling your ability to own firearms is.
They feel safer in Ohio, they said, adding that their experience drastically changed them and their views on a number of issues, including gun control. Before, both didn’t feel the need to own a gun. Now, they are proud gun owners and keep a handgun in the bedroom.
“I didn’t want a gun. I specifically didn’t want one,” Dittrich said. “I was very much opposed to hav[ing] one, and I guess I got the realization that the police really can’t protect you. They can respond, and they can protect you once they get there. But, you’re on your own.”
