Obama Seems Remarkably Uninterested in The Chaos at the Border. by The Elephant's Child

illegal alien border crossers

From Brietbart:

California Border Patrol union representative Ron Zermeno told ABC that he has been placed under a gag order in an attempt to avoid negative news about the southern border from getting out to the public. Zermeno said the order was designed to prevent him from saying that no agents will be securing the southern border.

Apparently the Border Patrol has been moved from the border to taking care of “processing” the thousands who are flowing across the border, leaving the border completely open. The administration also does not want us to know that these migrants are bringing diseases that we have mostly stamped out. There is great emphasis on “unaccompanied alien children”, yet the pictures I see are some small children with their mothers and a lot of young men, 14 and older. The young men seem to be the dominant numbers.

The administration does not want photos taken, they don’t want reporters to see them, they don’t want members of Congress to see. Deportations of illegal immigrant children have decreased drastically even as the number crossing the border increases. The last year of the Bush administration, the government was dealing with 7,000 to 8,000 cases a year. Since October of 2013, there have been at least 50,000, and federal official estimate there will be 150,000 to 160,000 next year.

The number of immigrants under 18 who were deported or turned away at ports of entry fell from 8,143 in 2008, the last year of the Bush administration, to 1,669 last year.  The White House has stated flatly that they “can’t stay” and will be returned home. However, under the law, the unaccompanied minors being caught must be turned over to HHS, which “coordinates care for them, finds them safe housing and helps to advise them on their legal rights, as their cases are decided.”

The problem is the “safe housing” part. That seems to be reuniting them with relatives already living in the US, and told to appear in 15 days before an immigration judge. Yet we learn from Border Patrol people that less than 20 percent of those released ever turn up for the hearings.

President Obama had another round of golf with his close friends, is off to Texas shortly for a series of three fundraisers, but will not visit the border. One might think there was nothing particularly important going on. I see a world in chaos, and a president who is not really interested, or is not concerned, or has essentially given up. The administration simply isn’t serious about sending these kids back where they came from, which is needed as a message that there is no amnesty and invading will not work. Obama is delivering 290,000 illegals to U.S. homes. That suggests that about 58,000 might turn up for their hearings, and that would leave 232,000 remaining here — permanently illegal.

And just why would Obama care about what’s going on at the border of the country? It has absolutely nothing to do with his job… as he sees it.

You see, Obama apparently believes that the reason he receives $400,000.00 a year; lives in an historic mansion on prime DC real estate; is provided with limousines and a modified 747 to travel in; has expense accounts provided by the government (the taxpayers!) covering general expenses, personal entertainment, state entertaining, office expenses, and travel; access to nay government recreational facilities (the golf course at Andrews is reportedly his favorite); a 125-acre retreat at Camp David, 5 full-time chefs; a household staff of 34, not counting official Executive Branch employees; access to the National Gallery for the art in his house; and $150,000.00 a year retirement (with free office space, free postage, and an additional $96,000.00 a year to pay for office workers) is not to do anything so mundane and beneath his sensibilities as running the country, securing the borders, and enforcing the laws.

No, Obama believes that his primary duty is to be a fundraiser for the Democrat Party. He believes his job is to blast Republicans whenever possible, and his duty to ignore people who disagree with him. He does not believe in personal accountability for his words and actions, and does not care about the real effect of his policies.

Obama believes that We the People are here to serve him, and that he has no obligation to help or even acknowledge the those who put him in office and pay for his perks.

So why should he care about some sick people from another country? They serve his purpose, and only that purpose, so far as he is concerned.. They distract from all of the other scandals and dysfunctions that have plagued his administration since day one. Anything else is irrelevant.

I was just talking to someone about this, and they asked why Obama doesn’t just fix the problem; after all, there are already laws and procedures on the books for dealing with issues like this. I told him there were a number of reasons:
• Quite simply, Obama doesn’t know how. Finding solutions to problems has never been his forte.
• Finding a solution would take time away from his fund-raising and his golf game.
• Trying to find a solution would mean taking charge, and taking charge would imply a certain responsibility, and Obama avoids even the appearance of taking responsibility like the plague.
• And most importantly, Obama isn’t interested in fixing the problem because he needs the problem. A problem solved is a problem he can’t blame on Republicans. He can’t afford to let the problem go away, and he is certainly NOT going to help it go away. Obama simply has to have an issue (any issue will do, and the more the better) that he can use to divide. Division is the way Obama works, and he knows no other way of doing things. Everything, EVERYTHING, revolves around the “Us vs. Them” strategy. Class warfare? The poor vs. the rich, of which he sides with the poor – never mind that he is a multi-millionaire. Black vs. white (or Minority vs. White). Haves vs. Have Nots.
Simply put, Obama doesn’t solve the problem because he doesn’t want to. Politics before policy, every time.

I think everything revolves around that first speech at the Democratic convention in Boston. He learned he could move large numbers of people with his speechmaking ability. As he told Harry Reid during his brief career in the Senate “I have a gift.” But he knew that he didn’t know much about foreign policy or much of anything else, which is the reason for all the ‘czars’ in the White House.
So he hired people he considered to be ‘experts,’ many from academia, all of whom agreed to follow his lead. He wasn’t, for the most part, very good about picking experts. For example there is his science advisor John Holdren, who was the John Kerry and Teresa Hines Kerry professor of environmental policy at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. Noted zealot (if not crackpot). He and John Erlich lost the famous bet to Julian Simon about the price of 5 key metals. He was heavily involved in the overpopulation movement and the anti-nuclear movement. Obama calls him whenever he wants to know anything about science, and apparently Holdren is behind the fear of global warming, and why Obama is so sure he is right.

Why would he want to go there or fix this problem? He caused it and it serves a purpose.
The UN already want this invasion titled “Global refugee migration” – which, if enough americans are infected by this non-curable diseases brought in by these invaders – to come in and ‘help’ out.
Hundreds if not thousands of UN trucks, Jeeps among others are here already being distributed throughout the USA. Factor in an ‘open’ boarder – a ‘false flag’ would play into these globalists plan. The so-called children are selected intentional.
All the FEMA camps are ready and staffed; obama’s purge of our 210+ military leaders too is intentional because they refused to commit to fire on americans.
What does Obama – the federal reserve stooge – really want? Yep – Kerry signed the USA as a participant to the ‘small arms treaty’ – although not ratified by congress – but this criminal crew does not care about laws.
Remember all the foreign troops brought 2-3 years ago? They will be here wearing the blue helmets, patrolling and disarming the American people after a devastating false flag attack.
Then it will be martial law……..that is the endgame of the current situation. All this will happen before 2016 – the info is out there.
There is a reason that he keeps our troops at bay whether it’s Afghanstan, Europe etc – btw he will send more troops to Europe to protect them against Russia.

Well, cali, that’s a little over the top. There are no UN troops in the U.S. (it’s a breach of diplomatic protocol for UN troops to be in the US, and we supply most of them anyway). The FEMA camps are not staffed up… in fact, many of those living in the affected areas are wondering why these kids are NOT being sent to those camps for processing and detention.

(there’s a simple reason for that as well; placing them in federal custody, which they would be at a FEMA camp, still has them as a federal responsibility. The administration has been doing everything it can to keep the news and other investigative bodies away from them, and being in federal custody would allow the results of a single FOIA request and/or habeas corpus motion access to all of them. The official administration policy has been to issue gag orders to the people treating these aliens, and to restrict the access to them. The administration has actually been in contact with several church-based entities in southern California, trying to get private citizens to take these “children” in – that removes them from federal custody and would make it more difficult for anyone to track them down, and each one would have to be approached separately. Obama wants to lose all of these kids anonymously into the general population (we’ve already seen that the Obama administration talent for “losing” electronic records). He wants them faceless, so no one can track them down later and find out the how and the why they all came here; almost certainly many of them are here because parents sent them, others because local authorities sent them (criminal records? don’t forget the Mariel Boatlift), still others because of information that has been being circulated in Central America since 2009 offering food stamps, housing, and medical assistance to anyone from those countries.)

In short, this is Obama’s immigration “reform”… illegal immigration with no vetting or restriction.

Obama is in the right house, he is just wearing the wrong jacket.

A man can be no more than what he is, and there is your explanation for his impotence in dealing with matters of state.
