Querido Líder Daily Kabuki Theater, this time the National Guard on the Border


by the Left Coast Rebel

It's pretty simple. Today's news of Obama's sudden toughness on the border (sending 1200 National Guardsmen) means nothing. Perhaps it has accomplished two things - the useful idiot press is parroting it as signifigant and it gives an appearance of being on the right side of the issue via. public opinion.

The Obama administration plans to announce Tuesday that it will send as many as 1,200 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border to improve border security, an Arizona congresswoman said.

Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords also said in a statement released Tuesday that President Barack Obama will request $500 million in funding for border security.

Part of Giffords’ district borders Mexico.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s spokesman said the governor hadn’t been told of the move prior to her office being contacted by The Associated Press and had no immediate comment.

Nice that Gov. Jan Brewer wasn't told of the National Guard troops, I wonder why? Mexico itself proves the point that this is simply Obama Kabuki Theater. Always watch the right hand as the left hand tells you something the precise opposite. Get a load of this from the Mexican Embassy:

Regarding the Administration’s decision to send 1,200 National Guard servicemen to the US Southern border, the Government of Mexico trusts that this decision will help to channel additional US resources to enhance efforts to prevent the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.

Additionally, the Government of Mexico expects that National Guard personnel will strengthen US operations in the fight against transnational organized crime that operates on both sides of our common border and that it will not, in accordance to its legal obligations, conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws.

Mexico is determined to continue working on its side of the border to enhance the security and well-being of border communities, and to deter and dismantle organized crime and its links to drug trafficking and human smuggling.

As part of our joint strategy in the fight against transnational organized crime, there are actions that our two governments have undertaken together, and there are other measures taken independently by Mexico and by the US within their respective territories. In this regard, the Mexican Government fully respects the sovereign decisions of the US Government, but underscores that joint responsibility must continue to underpin our joint efforts in rolling-back transnational organized crime operating on both sides of the border.

Being a border state resident for 34 years now, I will tell you something with absolute certainty. If Obama's 'border plan' had teeth, the Mexican government would be screaming bloody murder.

That is all.

h/t for Mexican Obama goes to Hansi Nufer

UPDATED: Here's the screaming idiot article of the day. According to Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck, "crime will go up" if the Arizona law takes effect in Arizona or otherwise. The last time I checked, Los Angeles was one of the dirtiest, third world-esque crime ridden hell holes in the world.

Just what the heck is Police Chief Charlie Beck talking about?


  1. "Regarding the Administration’s decision to send 1,200 National Guard ... clerks and typists armed with word processors and blank U. S. Customs' forms to the US Southern border.."


  2. suddenly this Mexican president wants to sound as if he has concerns about the border... As if we are a bunch of stupid gringos.. well admittedly, we do have our share. But I for one am not one of them... They have no problem guarding the southern border. Or at least ensuring they get their cut of the drug traffic.
    I want to take this Mexican and use him like a club to beat Obama....

  3. Tim: B'Oz's numbers slid further still today. Now at all time low of -22 Approval Index. More here:


  4. He stood silently by while the Mexican President bad mouthed Americans on American soil. I'm pissed off.

  5. I understand Comrade Zero sending troops is bogus. That all the "troops" will be are desk jobs, etc. Totally useless.

    IDEA: Hire all the unemployed in the area and have them build a BIG fence along the border. This takes them off the unemployment rolls and accomplishes what Zero won't do.

  6. If anyone think this traitor would send troops to protect us from the invasion of illegal immigration is either deaf, dumb, blind, or stupid. Most likely he's sending them there to protect them FROM US. After all, only white Americans can be terrorists and racist, so best to not let anything happen to those poor hard working people that just want to come here to work (the system) while Americans can't find work with the ever increasing unemployment rate.
