In the movie The Hunt for Red October, CIA analyst Jack Ryan, (played by Alec Baldwin) is on a U.S. Navy submarine that has tracked the Russian’s silent propulsion first-strike nuclear sub, the Red October, commanded by Marko Ramius. Ramius intends to turn the vessel over to the U.S., then defect. He is being relentlessly pursued by the Russian navy, which he has managed to avoid for the most part.
Ryan ponders how Ramius will get the Russian naval crew to go along with the ruse to abandon the sub, and thinks to himself, “’Russians don’t take a dump son, without a plan.’ …How do you get a crew to willingly evacuate a nuclear sub?” Ryan has an epiphany. Create a crisis.
The same strategy is in play with the Obama administration. Ask yourself, “How do you get 330M Americans to accept millions of illegal Mexicans to become citizens of the United States?” You create a crisis.
Apparently, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has had a policy of permitting, even encouraging the movement of guns into Mexico. And according to Attorney General Eric Holder, members of his staff at the Justice Department wanted to show proof of his and other Obama
administration officials’ statements that the majority of firearms used by Mexican drug cartels originated in the United States and are smuggled into that drug-war-torn country.
What Holder is essentially saying is the best way to prove that Mexicans were getting firearms from the United States was to provide the Mexicans firearms from the United States.
Interesting approach, and who could argue that this method would definitely have proven that Mexicans were getting firearms from the United States. What this approach doesn’t prove is that Mexicans cartels are not buying firearms from elsewhere in the world.
Mexican citizens cannot legally own guns, so why would the U.S. thwart Mexican law? Given this administration’s attempt to take firearms away from American citizens, I can’t imagine that our government is attempting to arm Mexican citizens against the cartels that threaten them. The only real possibility for the destination for these weapons is to Mexican drug cartels.
So why is the U.S. arming the cartels, and what’s Holder hiding? Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), the Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform certainly wants to know.
In a biting letter to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) Acting Director Kenneth E. Melson, criticized the Director for failing to produce any documents in response to a subpoena issued more than a month ago on March 31 regarding “Operation Gunrunner.”
We have a country that is imploding on itself, so much so that its own citizens are fleeing like scalded dogs into the U.S. The worse the Mexican economy, the more Mexicans who feel the hopelessness.
Add more guns to the cartels, and the turmoil could escalate to crisis levels. Imagine the lawlessness that might occur with the increased firepower of the cartels. These cartels now represent the wealthiest Mexicans, and they are buying off law enforcement like Democrats buy black folks.
Mexico is on the brink of total anarchy. Calderon is the president of Mexico; however nobody is certain who is actually in charge. One thing is for sure: It’s not Calderon. Mexico is being led by powerful cartels who have carved up the country, forcing Mexicans who love their country to seek safety…in the United States.
As The Examiner reported, top members of the U.S. House of Representatives on May 6 called on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to support the designation of certain Mexican drug cartels as terrorist organizations. This designation would give U.S. law enforcement agencies the authority to use the Patriot Act to crack down on suspected drug cartel members and associates, providing the ability for the U.S. to seize cartel bank accounts or imposing harsher prison sentences for possession of firearms.
U.S. Rep. Peter T. King (R-NY), Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, and Rep. Michael T. McCaul, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations, and Management also requested that Secretary Clinton develop a comprehensive strategy to assist the Mexican government win their war against the violent and deadly cartels such as Los Zetas, who are suspected of murdering an American law enforcement agent.
The state department turned down these requests.
Mexico’s tourist industry is as dead as the disco that used to be heard pumping outside of Mexican city night spots. Mexico now relies on the drug trade for its survival. Because of the new strategy, in a very short amount of time, Mexico will be declared uninhabitable, and the U.S. will be asked to provide amnesty for Mexicans escaping persecution. I give you a crisis.
That is how Obama and the Democrats plan on solving the illegal immigration problem, and getting those much needed votes for the future. You won’t hear Mexico complaining, nor will you hear La Raza or other Mexican organizations in the U. S. Ask yourself why?
That’s my rant!
