Check and mate
By Dr. Robert Owens
According to Zach Taylor an outspoken former Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent who is the chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, "As the government allocates resources to South Texas, it is systematically leaving areas within the U.S., as well as vast swaths of land along the border, unguarded." Taylor continues, "This gives people that are trying to get their infrastructure, their personnel, their drugs, their dirty bombs, their biological weapons, their chemical weapons into the United States without being noticed" the opportunity to do so, "because this part of the border is open, it is not being controlled."
Taylor also said, "If asymmetrical warfare is going to be successful, the first thing that has to be done is to compromise America's defenses against invasion because they have to have their personnel inside the United States to affect the infrastructure... they have to affect the degeneration from inside the United States."
By constantly focusing on the 10% that is apprehended, and by consistently referring to the 1%who are immigrant minors, the government and their media fellow-travelers draw the attention of most Americans away from the hundreds of thousands who evade capture. No one knows how many of these people are gang members. It is known that in Central America children as young as ten join these gangs and that the initiation for many is committing murder. These are the poor but not innocent children who may be in a classroom with your own sons and daughters come September.
According to a June press release Taylor elaborated, "This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor Illegal Alien children at risk for purely political purposes. Certainly, we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States Government."
Former Agent Taylor asked this pregnant question, "Will this heartless criminal exploitation of Central American infants and children finally awaken Americans to the ruse being foisted upon them by their government, the media and other interested parties, or has America lost her ability to stand up against the tyrants and do what is right rather than what is easy?"
Perhaps the most chilling thing Taylor had to say was, "It is a perfect military strategy. It doesn't raise any eyebrows because we're focused on the children, but we need to focus on our children, because this is asymmetrical warfare. Everything says it is. And the way the United States government is responding to it is concealing that fact from the American people. In other words they're assisting in the downfall of America, and you need to understand that."
What is the real scope of this invasion? According to Dan Patrick a Texas State Senator, "Every week, week after week, we've been averaging for the last year apprehending between six and ten thousand people a week. If we apprehend eight or nine thousand a week, that's more people than are born in Texas each week." The Senator continued, "Now, we think we catch one out of every five. That means twenty five or thirty thousand are crossing the border, that we don't catch. Don't focus on the numbers that are apprehended, that's the ones we catch."
Ronald Colburn, former national deputy chief of the U.S. Border Patrol says, "According to my sources, it appears that this administration is causing that [bottleneck] on purpose. So they [the Obama administration] may be saying they're trying to resolve it, but they're doing something different. They need to put their actions where their mouths are."
According to a Pew Research study, "Even though the growth is higher among younger children, the bulk of unaccompanied children caught at the border remain teenagers. In fiscal year 2013, nine-in-ten minors apprehended at the border were teens. This share has dropped as the number of younger children making the dangerous trip has risen dramatically: In the first eight months of fiscal year 2014, 84% were teens."
We are told every day all day by the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media and the cable clones that this is an emergency. Or as they say it, "THIS IS AN EMERGENCY!!" Yet according to the Congressional Budget Office only $25 million out of the $4.3 billion request will be spent this year. The CBO score conflicts with the argument of Democrats and Obama administration officials, that the money is urgently needed for border activities. We are portrayed as heartless, as merely wanting to protect our own privilege while consigning the children to lives of hopeless poverty. However the fact is that according to Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) the Senate Budget Committee's ranking member, "Between 2000 and 2013, we lawfully issued almost 30 million work and immigrant visas. To put that number in perspective, 30 million is about the population of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala combined."
I believe it is time that those of us who believe in a traditional America and its values of limited government, personal liberty and economic freedom are honest with ourselves. For the past 100 years when you compare the long game of the Progressives with the rest of us; we have been playing checkers and they have been playing chess. Not only have they kept their end goals always in view through victory and defeat they have successfully captured education and media programming generations of people to if not think like them to at least accept the soundness of their premise: government can be all things to all people. In this game of chess that we never realized we were playing, the current invasion, plotted and planned well in advance, may well be check and checkmate. How can we ever recover from an influx of millions of new progressive supporters and voters shipped around the country to the districts needed to sway elections? How are we ever going to come back from this?
Abraham Lincoln told us, "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
Europe committed suicide in two fratricidal world wars. We have allowed hubris abroad and greed at home to lead us down the same path. By establishing a world-girdling empire of nation building money pits and a centrally planned redistributionist attempt at utopia at home we have stifled freedom and killed the golden goose. Now the preplanned crisis in the south is delivering the plurality of low information voters to seal the deal.
Finally a plan by the Obama Administration to save the children from the train of death, pick them up in their home countries and fly the directly to the districts where Democratic voters are most needed. As far as political theater this comes under the "You've got to be kidding me" category. And as a bonus once the children are here we will need to bring their parents along to help preserve the family. And now the undocumented democrats are demanding representation at any White House meetings designed to determine their fate. They plan to protest in front of the White House until their demands are met with no fear of arrest. Has Monty Python taken over this country? How can living in the shadows include public demonstrations and representation in the government?
We cry about the people who have broken all the rules of our checkers game while they move our pawns to the welfare line, our knights to the unemployment line, our rooks our bishops and our queen to the sidelines, and our king to the deadline. Check and mate.
