As Obama, Pelosi and Reid continue to betray America the filth just continue to infect our nation. Even as drug cartels violence and thuggery pours across thousand of miles of unprotected borders, Obama, Pelosi and Reid do nothing. These thugs are modern day Barbary pirates and should be dealt with using military assets. If the laws need changing, then change them. Whether we use ground troops en masse along the border or land mines Mexico needs to be dealt with. Mexico’s politicians are complicit in the violence, decades of top to bottom corruption has left few honest men. The military should seal the border and lock it down, much like Mexico does on its southern border. All trade should halted and border crossings should be closed until Mexico’s government uses extreme force to eradicate all traffickers of drugs and humans. Our dear leader does not have the intelligence to actually act in Americas interest, unless somebody types it into his teleprompter The border states our going to have to act on there own until Obama, Pelosi and Reid are sent packing.
Mexican drug cartels have set up shop on American soil, maintaining lookout bases in strategic locations in the hills of southern Arizona from which their scouts can monitor every move made by law enforcement officials, federal agents tell Fox News.
The scouts are supplied by drivers who bring them food, water, batteries for radios — all the items they need to stay in the wilderness for a long time.

“To say that this area is out of control is an understatement,” said an agent who patrols the area and asked not to be named. “We (federal border agents), as well as the Pima County Sheriff Office and the Bureau of Land Management, can attest to that.”
Much of the drug traffic originates in the Menagers Dam area, the Vekol Valley, Stanfield and around the Tohono O’odham Indian Reservation. It even follows a natural gas pipeline that runs from Mexico into Arizona.
In these areas, which are south and west of Tucson, sources said there are “cartel scouts galore” watching the movements of federal, state and local law enforcement, from the border all the way up to Interstate 8.
“Every night we’re getting beaten like a pinata at a birthday party by drug, alien smugglers,” a second federal agent told Fox News by e-mail. “The danger is out there, with all the weapons being found coming northbound…. someone needs to know about this!”
The agents blame part of their plight on new policies from Washington, claiming it has put a majority of the U.S. agents on the border itself. One agent compared it to a short-yardage defense in football, explaining that once the smugglers and drug-runners break through the front line, they’re home free.
“We are unable to work any traffic, because they have us forward deployed,” the agent said. “We are unable to work the traffic coming out of the mountains. That traffic usually carries weapons and dope, too, again always using stolen vehicles.”
The Department of Homeland Security denies it has ordered any major change in operations or any sort of change in forward deployment.
“The Department of Homeland Security has dedicated unprecedented manpower, technology and infrastructure resources to the Southwest border over the course of the past 16 months,” DHS spokesman Matt Chandler said. “Deployment of CBP/Border Patrol and ICE personnel to various locations throughout the Southwest border is based on actionable intelligence and operational need, not which elected official can yell the loudest.”
While agents in the area agree that southwest Arizona has been a trouble spot for more than a decade, many believe Washington and politicians “who come here for one-day visit” aren’t seeing the big picture.
They say the area has never been controlled and has suddenly gotten worse, with the cartels maintaining a strong presence on U.S. soil. More than ever, agents on the front lines are wearing tactical gear, including helmets, to protect themselves.
“More than 4,000 of these agents are deployed in Arizona,” Chandler says. “The strategy to secure our nation’s borders is based on a ‘defense in depth’ philosophy, including the use of interior checkpoints, like the one on FR 85 outside Ajo, to interdict threats attempting to move from the border into the interior of our nation.”
Without placing direct fault on anyone, multiple agents told Fox that the situation is more dangerous for them than ever now that the cartels have such a strong position on the American side of the border.
They say morale is down among many who patrol the desolate area, and they worry that the situation won’t change until an agent gets killed.

As Obama is killing a $340 million dollar a month industry that employs tens of thousands of AMERICAN workers. It comes out Obamas puppet master the anti-american billionaire George Soros has massive holdings in BRAZIL’s oil giant Petrobas,
who also received $2 billiion in taxpayer dollars from OBAMA. Why is a company making $15 billion a year in profits receiving U.S. taxpayer money? Who knows, what is true is Soros is getting rich while U.S. oil workers starve. The real meat of the story is Petrobas is drilling to 14,000 ft while Obama halts U.S. drilling at 500ft. Soros is tied to OBAMA by way of John Podesta who is OBAMAS hand picked errand boy in charge of filling his administration. Who employs Podresta, why George Soros of course. Can you say “Conflict of Interest”, the media won’t.
So lets recap
Obama gives $2 bill to Brazil’s nationalized oil giant PETROBAS
George Soros invests $ 900 mill
Obama bans U.S. oil drilling over 500ft
Petrobas drill as deep as 14,000 ft
George Soros makes lots of money, who benefits from Soros money and organizations. “KING OBAMA”
Who loses, every state that depends on drilling in the Gulf.
Oh China benefits too, they just ink’d deals with CUBA to yes DRILL IN THE GULF.
THANK YOU DEAR LEADER!
If the stench coming out of congress isn’t bad enough, Democrat House Majority leader Steny Hoyer announced the Democrats are to cowardly too pass a budget resolution. These cowards know that there agenda is not supported by most Americans so with elections looming they took a tactic employed by Obama while serving his one short Senate term. This way they can go home and say “hey I didn’t vote for that”. I guess this is all about transparency.
One of the biggest scumbags in a Senate full of scumbags is stopping at nothing to waste your tax dollars for political payback. The tribes donates heavily to Democrats and this is what they expect for there financial support. Chris Dodd (D) is and always has been an errand boy for Wall street. His record is so full of slimy back room deals that paid his pockets its amazing he has never been indicted., but that big (D) says it all.
With the support of Sen. Chris Dodd, D.-Conn., the federal government has awarded $54 million to Connecticut’s politically well-connected Mohegan Indian tribe, which operates one of the highest grossing casinos in the U.S. Mohegan Sun Receives Stimulus Package The Mohegan tribe, which owns the Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville, Conn., has been awarded a $54 million loan from federal stimulus funds.
The tribe runs the sprawling Mohegan Sun casino, halfway between New York City and Boston, which earned more than $1.3 billion in gross revenues in 2009. Each tribe member receives a cut of the profits, a number a tribal official said was “less than $30,000” per capita per year. The stimulus money is a loan from a U.S. Department of Agriculture rural development program that is meant to help communities of less than 20,000 people that have been “unable to obtain other credit at reasonable rates and terms and are unable to finance the proposed project from their own resources.”
Lynn Malerba, chairwoman of the Mohegan Tribal Council, defended the award of the stimulus loan to the tribe, and said that every member of Connecticut’s seven-member Congressional delegation except one had provided assistance in securing the funds. “The whole Connecticut delegation, I think aside from [Rep.] Jim Himes, who was traveling, sent a letter in support.”
Bryan DeAngelis, communications director for Sen. Dodd, confirmed Dodd’s support for the loan. “Senator Dodd supported this project in the same manner and for the same reasons he supports federal assistance for other Connecticut projects – creating and preserving local jobs,” said DeAngelis. “The only factor that mattered in Dodd’s support of these loans was job creation and economic recovery in Connecticut.” A former aide to Dodd, Charles Bunnell, is Chief of Staff for External and Governmental Affairs for the tribe.
An aide to Sen. Joseph Lieberman said the senator “is supportive of any constituent that applies for federal funding that will create jobs.”
While the nation gets a peek into what lap dogs most Democrats are the media is totally missing the important part of the whole story. Do Democratic Party voters just see (D) on there ballot and mindlessly pull the handle. This clown Alvin got 60% of the vote, this mental midget didn’t just squeak by he trounced his opponent. It appears the average Democrat gets there marching orders from there union overlords or local preacher and just wander down to the polling station like zombies and vote. You look at lightweights like Obama and you really wonder, what real qualities or skills did Obama bring to the table. Did he ever create a private sector job, did he ever have to make a payroll. Hell he never even held a real job all he has ever done is mooch off taxpayers and rich pimps funding his radical agenda. He didn’t even finish his first term in the Senate even after promising he would. Its no wonder the private sector has lost 2.5 millions jobs while nearly 500,000 public sector jobs have been added under Obama. While unemployment hovers near 10% and jobless claims spike again the Democrats continue to offer nothing but more spending and regulation. Private sector salaries spiral down while public sector wages continue to rise. The labor folks just reported the number of federal workers earning $100k+ has risen to 16%. This is your hard earned money being spent by morons, Alvin is just the latest moron to come along.
Alvin Greene said he has no plans to attend a meeting Thursday of party leaders deciding whether to overturn the primary election result that named him the South Carolina Democratic Senate nominee to challenge Sen. Jim DeMint in November.
In a brief phone interview with FoxNews.com, Greene said he was not attending the state party’s executive committee meeting in Columbia to hear a protest by former state lawmaker Vic Rawl, whom he defeated in the June 8 primary.
South Carolina’s Democrats are poised to decide the fate of the election in which Greene, a 32-year-old unemployed military veteran, shocked local officials by winning without raising funds, giving any speeches or holding any rallies.
Rawl has asked the state Democratic Party for a new primary election based on flaws with the voting machines or software. In his protest, he cited voting irregularities including people who tried to vote for Rawl but whose ballots showed Greene’s name checked instead.
So far, no evidence of tampering or voting abnormalities has been determined. South Carolina’s Board of Elections told FoxNews.com it has no plans to investigate the vote.
Rawl doesn’t have to prove malfunctions occurred to get a ruling in his favor, said party executive director Jay Parmley. But the committee must consider the facts carefully because any decision it makes could be appealed to the state Supreme Court.
“There is not anything in the law that says anything regarding the burden of proof,” Parmley said. But: “It’s not like we will say, ‘We don’t like the candidate,’ so we will overturn the election.”
The executive committee was expected to make a decision at the end of Thursday’s hearing. The group could uphold the election, order a new primary or find that problems were so significant that Rawl should be declared the winner, according to Parmley. State party leaders said they can’t remember the committee ever overturning a statewide primary result.
Greene, who managed to win 59 percent of the vote, told FoxNews.com Thursday that he’s been in contact with party leaders “a little bit” over the decision, before hanging up the phone.
Bakari Sellers, South Carolina Democratic Party vice chairman, told Fox News on Wednesday, that he met with Greene shortly after his win and urged him to step out of the race. But Bakari said just because he doesn’t support Greene’s candidacy, he was unlikely to reject his victory.
“I don’t think that we have the right to overturn the election,” he said. “Unless there is something that comes up between now and tomorrow, when we’ll have this protest hearing, I’m not sure that there’s any evidence there to overturn the election.”
Alluding to a pending felony charge that Greene allegedly showed obscene Internet photos to a 19-year-old college student, Bakari said he thought it would be best if Greene withdrew his candidacy.
“In light of the recent charges, after hearing the outcry of the victim … whether or not he’s innocent or guilty, I felt it necessary that we get this behind us,” he said. “Unfortunately that went on deaf ears,” Bakari said.
For his part, Greene has said he won the election through “simple, old-fashioned” campaigning that included traveling the state and speaking to voters “wherever I could find them.”
But other party members, like South Carolina Democratic Party Communications Director Keina Page, have called Greene’s unlikely win “very suspicious.” U.S. House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., has called Greene a “plant” and has demanded an investigation into his candidacy.
Addressing speculation that he was a “plant,” Greene denied the charge, saying no one paid him or approached him about entering the race.
“From day one, they just didn’t have confidence in my campaign,” he said of state party leaders in an interview last week with FoxNews.com.

This story below is a perfect example of why so many people are getting pissed off about Obama continuing a failed immigration policy that is dragging America into decline. To many immigrants mostly illegal are here for financial gain, and could care less about America and our way of life. These hyphenated-Americans make little if any attempt to “melt-in”. They have little problem taking government benefits legally or illegally, while taxpayers suffer. They refuse to learn our language, or adhere to our laws. Where these Mexicans out in the streets supporting the U.S. soccer team, I’ am guessing no. Immigrants use to come here and where grateful to be here, they gave back to the country. The deadbeats immigrating lately are more likely to demand we adjust to there third world ways. Whether its muslims demanding foot baths or some other bunch demanding school books and driver test be printed in there language enough is enough. Lets deport the illegals and close the doors and take care of our fellow citizens. You have to wonder if the folks who legally come here get a little pissed when they see these illegals demanding rights and bad mouthing our country. Why play by the rules when others benefit by cheating, lying and stealing and then are rewarded with Amnesty. Obama, Pelosi and Reed have no problem selling out our nation for short term political gains that benefit there bank accounts. You can add a lot of Republicans into that bunch too, all need to be dealt with!
Fans take to SoCal streets after Mexico soccer win
HUNTINGTON PARK, CALIF. — Fans celebrating Mexico’s 2-0 win over France in World Cup play spilled into streets Thursday afternoon and were ordered to disperse by police wary of a repeat of soccer-related disturbances in the small city southeast of downtown Los Angeles.
“We had to give that order, the crowd was starting to become quiet large and it was becoming a little bit of a threat,” said police Sgt. John Navarrette.
Fans waving flags poured onto Pacific Boulevard, which law enforcement had shut down as a precaution during the second half of the game.
“We want people to celebrate, we have no problem with it whatsoever,” Navarrette said. “We just want them to do it responsibly and peacefully and not cause property damage.”
Huntington Park, home to a large Latino population, has a history of disturbances after Mexico’s World Cup play.
In November 2001, unruly fans celebrating Mexico’s victory over Honduras in World Cup qualifying tossed rocks and bottles and smashed windows after about 1,000 people streamed into the central business district. Officers fired stingballs to disperse the crowd.
In June 1998, throngs filled the streets and more than 30 were arrested for vandalism, assault and failure to disperse after Mexico tied Netherlands to advance. Days later dozens more were arrested after small groups of fans turned unruly following Mexico’s loss to Germany.
Huntington Park also endured an outbreak of violence and looting in 1994 when the World Cup was held in nearby Pasadena.

In one of the most vile acts yet committed by King Obama, he has basically allowed AK-47 armed Mexican para-military groups, drug smugglers and who knows whatever filth pouring across our undefended boirders free reign over U.S. territory. This territory is 80 miles north of the border, what will it take to get Obama to fulfill his duty as Commander and Chief? Americans are being restricted from U.S. sovereign territory while armed foreign nationals are given free reign. What is wrong here, apparently nothing if your in the Obama administration. In other protected park land Park Rangers are reporting massive environmental damage from tons of trash and debris left by Mexicans illegally entering the U.S. The EPA harasses Americans every day over silly issues, but turns a blind eye towards massive pollution on Federal territory.
About 3,500 acres of southern Arizona along the Mexican border is closed to U.S. citizens due to increased violence in the region.
The closed off area stretches 80 miles along the border and includes part of the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge. It was closed in October 2006 “due to human safety concerns,” the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Wednesday in response to news reports on the closure.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu told Fox News that violence against law enforcement officers and U.S. citizens has increased in the past four months, further underscoring the need to keep the 80 miles of border land off-limits to Americans.
The refuge had been adversely affected by the increase in drug smugglers, illegal activity and surveillance, which made it dangerous for Americans to visit.
“The situation in this zone has reached a point where continued public use of the area is not prudent,” said refuge manager Mitch Ellis.
“It’s literally out of control,” said Babeu. “We stood with Senator McCain and literally demanded support for 3,000 soldiers to be deployed to Arizona to get this under control and finally secure our border with Mexico. “
U.S. Fish and Wildlife officials have warned visitors in Arizona to beware of heavily armed drug smugglers and human traffickers.
“We need support from the federal government. It’s their job to secure the border and they haven’t done it,” said Babeu. “In fact, President Obama suspended the construction of the fence and it’s just simply outrageous.”
Signs have been posted warning Americans not to cross into the closed off territory south of Interstate 8. Babeu said the signs are not enough – he said Arizona needs more resources to help scale back the violence caused by the drug cartels.
“We need action. It’s shameful that we, as the most powerful nation on Earth, … can’t even secure our own border and protect our own families.”
