Obama Admin To Border Patrol: If Fired Upon: ‘Run Away’ And ‘Hide’

Start Thinking Right has put together the following bringing us to date on another Obama Administration expression of stupidity:
Do you remember the Monty Python flick about the “Holy Grail”?

What did they do whenever they were attacked?
“Run away!” 

And Obama hastily adds, “and hide.”

Now the United States Border Patrol are making Monty Python required instructional viewing to comply with Obama’s new policy:
Border Patrol union blasts Homeland Security instructions to ‘run away’ and ‘hide’ from gunmen
By Perry Chiaramonte
Published June 29, 2012
FoxNews.com

Border Patrol agents in Arizona are blasting their bosses for telling them, along with all other Department of Homeland Security employees, to run and hide if they encounter an “active shooter.”

It’s one thing to tell civilian employees to cower under a desk if a gunman starts spraying fire in a confined area, say members of Tucson Local 2544/National Border Patrol Council, but to give armed law enforcement professionals the same advice is downright insulting. The instructions from DHS come in the form of pamphlets and a mandatory computer tutorial.

“We are now taught in an ‘Active Shooter’ course that if we encounter a shooter in a public place we are to ‘run away’ and ‘hide’” union leader Brandon Judd wrote on the website of 3,300-member union local. “If we are cornered by such a shooter we are to (only as a last resort) become ‘aggressive’ and ‘throw things’ at him or her. We are then advised to ‘call law enforcement’ and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered).”

The FEMA-administered computer course, entitled “IS-907- Active Shooter: What You Can Do,” is a 45-minute tutorial that provides guidance to all employees on how to recognize indicators of possible workplace violence and what to do should their office be invaded by gunmen and focuses around three main options; either evacuate, hide out, or in dire circumstances, take action.
Main Points of the “Active Shooter” training course
  • Evacuate: If there is an accessible escape path, attempt to evacuate the premises.
  • Hide out: If evacuation is not possible, find a place to hide where the active shooter is less likely to find
    you.
  • Take action: As a last resort, and only when your life is in imminent danger, attempt to disrupt and/or
    incapacitate the active shooter.
Once the course is completed, employees are urged to download additional materials including a summary booklet and pocket-sized card outlining protocol, which was also handed out to employees two months ago.

One DHS employee told FoxNews.com the instruction cards were handed out to employees six weeks ago. At the time, he assumed they were only for civilian employees, not armed law enforcement officers within the department, which oversees the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

“Requiring BP agents to follow the same steps is egregious,” he said.
DHS officials maintain that the Active Shooter course was designed for all employees—civilian and law-enforcement officers– and no one should rush into a situation where they, or others around them, could get hurt.

“The Department of Homeland Security takes very seriously its responsibility to protect all of its employees from threats that may surface in the workplace,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Michael Friel said in a written statement to FoxNews.com

“CBP workforce training is designed to prepare all employees, including leaders, managers, supervisors, law enforcement personnel and non-law enforcement personnel, to understand their own roles and the roles of their fellow employees in responding to threats. In an active shooter scenario, employees are taught to take actions that keep them alive.”

But members of Local 2544 say they are obligated to protect the public in such a situation, whether they are on duty or not. Given the instructions, some wonder if they would be disciplined for taking down a gunman in a situation like the Fort Hood shooting or the January, 2011 case in Casa Adobes, in which a deranged gunmen shot 19 people, including Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Six people were killed.

“It is always comforting to know that for those of us who carry a weapon when we are off-duty, if we should encounter such a situation, stop a shooter and save countless lives, we can look forward to being disciplined or fired by the Border Patrol because we should have run away to hide and then maybe thrown objects at the deranged killer instead of taking action and stopping him with a firearm,” the union local’s website says.
Here’s the new border reality under Barack Obama:

And:

And:


Under Obama, illegal immigration is not a crime.

If an illegal immigrant shoots at a Border Patrol agent, it is not a crime.
If the Border Patrol agent returns fire – you know, not having ran away and hidden - THAT is a crime.

God … Damn … America…

And here’s the official response from Mexico:

I’m so ashamed.  Mind you, I could be even MORE ashamed; I could be a US Border Patrol agent trying to find a shrub to hide behind.

The Monty Python administration border policy has come to full fruition.

Brian Terry was responsible for his own death.  He should have “evacuated the premises” and “found a place to hide.”  So it’s not Eric Holder’s fault just because he gave the Mexican drug cartel murderers the guns to shoot Officer Terry with.

Obama Declares War on Arizona


THE NEW REVOLUTIONARY COUNCIL HEADED BY AMERICA'S FIRST DICTATOR, BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, HAS ADDED ARIZONA LAW ENFORCEMENT TO HIS GROWING TARGET LIST.  IN A BOLD MOVE THE GREAT LEADER ORDERED HIS INNER COUNCIL NOT TO ACCEPT CALLS FROM ARIZONA LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS CHECKING ON THE STATUS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.  ADDITIONALLY HE HAD HIS COMRADES ESTABLISH A HOTLINE TO TAKE THE CALLS OF ILLEGALS WHO CLAIMED TO HAVE BEEN ABUSED BY THE GOOSE-STEPPING POLICE IN THE ROGUE STATE.

Former Arizona Governor Sells Out Arizona

Napolitano: Arizona can go to ----
In light of the U.S. Supreme Court decision on SB2010, one would believe that the former Attorney General and Governor (2003 to 2009) of Arizona, Janet Napolitano, should well understand and care about the consequences of her home state being overrun by illegals. But such is not the case. Janet Napolitano is all-in with the President and she has willingly sold out the legal citizens of Arizona.

The Washington Times is reporting today that "Homeland Security suspends immigration agreements with Arizona police" And who runs Homeland Security? None other than Janet Napolitano. Below is an excerpt from the article which presents her latest actions to restrict law enforcement in Arizona:
The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police.

Administration officials, speaking on condition they not be named, told reporters they expect to see an increase in the number of calls they get from Arizona police — but that won’t change President Obama’s decision to limit whom the government actually tries to detain and deport.

“We will not be issuing detainers on individuals unless they clearly meet our defined priorities,” one official said in a telephone briefing.

The official said that despite the increased number of calls, which presumably means more illegal immigrants being reported, the Homeland Security Department is unlikely to detain a significantly higher number of people and won’t be boosting personnel to handle the new calls.

“We do not plan on putting additional staff on the ground in Arizona,” the official said. . . .

Last week, Mr. Obama said he would halt deportations for most illegal immigrants under 30 who were brought here as children.

On Monday the administration officials also said they are ending the seven 287(g) task force agreements with Arizona law enforcement officials, which proactively had granted some local police the powers to enforce immigration laws.

The task forces, named for the section of law that allows them, have proved popular among many localities but have been a political headache for the Obama administration, with immigrant-rights groups saying they led to abuses.

On Monday the administration officials said they had concluded the seven agreements they had signed with various departments in Arizona weren’t working and took the Supreme Court’s ruling as a chance to scrap them. [Full Story]

SCOTUS Decision On Arizona SB 1070

U.S. Supreme Court
ARRA News Service ReportsArizona v. United States [Arizona Appeal on SB 1070] Docket No. 11-182
Holding: The lower courts erred in holding that Section 2(B) of Senate Bill 1070 - which requires police to check the immigration status of persons whom they detain before releasing them and which allows police to stop and detain anyone suspected of being an undocumented immigrant – should not go into effect while its lawfulness is being litigated because it is not sufficiently clear that the provision is preempted. Section 3 – which makes it a state crime for someone to be in the United States without proper authorization – is preempted because Congress left no room for states to regulate in that field, or even to enhance federal prohibitions. Section 5(C) - which makes it a state crime for undocumented immigrants to apply for a job or work in Arizona – is preempted as imposing an obstacle to the federal regulatory system. Section 6 – which authorizes state law enforcement officials to arrest without a warrant any individual otherwise lawfully in the country, if they have probable cause to believe that the individual has committed a deportable offense – is preempted because whether and when to arrest someone for being unlawfully in the country is a question solely for the federal government.
Judgment: Affirmed in part, reversed in part, and remaned., 5-3, in an opinion by Justice Kennedy on June 25, 2012. Justices Scalia, Thomas and Alito each filed opinions concurring in part and dissenting in part. (Kagan, J., rescued)
The Supreme Court struck down most of the provisions of S.B. 1070 but allowed for now police to check the immigration status of persons whom they detain before releasing them. The Court held that the lower courts were wrong to prevent this provision from going into effect while its lawfulness is being litigated.  More info

Illegal Immigration Hurts American Employment


Border Issues: Mexico - Facts mean very little in any debate about immigration north of the Rio Grande. One such example comes from a bastion of journalism, the Daily Beast. Arian Campo-Flores in an article, Why Americans Think (Wrongly) That Illegal Immigrants Hurt the Economy, cites an economist, Gordon Hanson in a 2005 paper.
“Hanson analyzed how the size of the undocumented population and its use of public assistance affected attitudes toward immigration. He found that among low-skilled workers, opposition to immigration stemmed mainly from the competitive threat posed by the newcomers. Among high-skilled, better-educated employees, however, opposition was strongest in states with both high numbers of immigrants and relatively generous social services. What worried them most, in other words, was the fiscal burden of immigration.”

The irony is that for all the overexcited debate, the net effect of immigration is minimal (about a one tenth of 1 percent gain in gross domestic product, according to Hanson).”
This last contention that adverse consequences are minimal, illustrates the withdrawal from reality of defenders for the latest Obama unconstitutional initiative to eliminate the rule of law.

Senor Campo-Flores needs to deal with the essentials of a report in the End of the American Dream, 10 Things That Will Happen If Barack Obama Continues To Systematically Legalize Illegal Immigration.
#1 There Will Be Fewer Jobs For American Workers
In the United States today, 53 percent of all college graduates under the age of 25 are either unemployed or underemployed. Many of them are absolutely desperate for work.

#2 Wages For American Workers Will Continue To Decline
When you have a lot more workers competing for the same number of jobs, what happens?
That is right – wages go down.

#3 Illegal Immigrants Will Overwhelm Our Welfare System
Every year, illegal immigrants receive tens of billions of dollars in welfare payments. They get free food assistance, free housing assistance, free health care benefits and free education for their children. Life is good if you are an illegal immigrant and you know how to game the system.

#4 Mexican Drug Cartels Will Establish A Presence In Nearly Every City In The United States
Mexican drug cartels continue to expand their influence inside the United States at a frightening pace. They are slowly taking over our communities. How far do things have to go before we say enough is enough?

#5 There Will Be Increasing “Anti-American Violence” Inside The United States
These days a lot of Americans are being attacked (and sometimes killed) down in Mexico.

#6 Massive Bribes Will Corrupt Our Judicial System
When there are billions of dollars involved, it is inevitable that some members of the police and some members of the judiciary will take bribes.

#7 Gang Activity Will Continue To Grow In The United States By Leaps And Bounds
Gang activity is absolutely exploding inside the United States.

#8 The Decline Of Our Health Care System Will Continue To Accelerate
Illegal immigrants are overwhelming emergency rooms all over the country. They walk in, receive high quality treatment and often never pay after they leave.

#9 Legalizing Illegal Immigrants Will Cause A Huge Shift In Voting Patterns
Instead of looking out for the American people, many Democrats support legalizing illegal immigration because it will give the Democratic Party more support at the polls.

#10 There Will Be A Flood Of New Illegal Immigrants
Amazingly, far more people move into the United States illegally than come in through the legal immigration process.
The structural aims of dismantling the mythical “melting pot”, into a hostile camp of alien factions is the vicious objective of the ruling class. Couched in the liberal minded attitude of progressive altruism, anyone who defends traditional values and prudent borders are condemned as the scourge of society.

If the big 10 breakdown aftermaths are not enough to push your blood pressure to a new level, why concern yourself about the economic fallout from the immigration highway to oblivion?

The provocative proponent for a coherent immigration policy, Frosty Wooldridge in What Illegal Immigration Costs You the Taxpayer, makes the point.
“The lifetime net fiscal drain—taxes paid minus services used—for an adult immigrant is $55,200.00 according to Carrying Capacity Network. Who makes that money up? You do! Your work! Your taxes!

With a minimum of 15 million illegal aliens in our country, these figures are the tip of the iceberg.

You can count on your corporations devouring cheap labor as they send you to the unemployment lines. Additionally, they pay PAC groups to keep senators and congressmen in their back pocket. How do I know? Virtually zero companies in 2011 were taken to court for hiring illegal aliens. None went to jail. However, it’s a $10,000.00 fine per illegal alien hired and up to five years in prison. You would think that would deter corporations. Not when they’ve bought off enforcement!”
The impoverishment of America and the massacre of the middle class is the conscious intent of an “Open Border” stratagem. As business conditions continue to deteriorate and employment options diminish further, the influx of illegal immigrants drives a stake in the fiber of a once viable country. Not all the bleeding heart empathy in the world can build prosperity in a sinking economy.

The political betrayal that allows the unremitting import of peasants only dilutes the standard of living of native-born citizens. President Obama wants to be a nobility bandit that steals from the Old Gringo. His arbitrary and capricious dictates, best explained in the “Fast and Furious” saga, drags down the vary tenants of a free society. How can commerce thrive when institutional corruption flourishes?

American nationals deserve a better country. Illegal aliens have no moral claim on the earned wealth of ordinary workers. Lowering the standard of wages, adjusted for the true rate of inflation, is a guaranteed formula for a disaster. Government denial and enforcement avoidance of existing immigration statutes can only destroy what little respect that exists for political elites. Obama’s fiat decree is just the latest example of another nail in the coffin of the national body.

Arpaio Raid Saves 5 Year Old El Salvadoran Girl Being Trafficked to U.S.

A girl detained in a raid of a group of suspected illegal immigrants in Maricopa County, Ariz., last week is a 5-year-old who left El Salvador to try to reach relatives in California, NBC News has learned.

The girl was traveling with strangers as part of a smuggling group, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. Agents say none of the 15 adults caught with her in a van knew who she was, or where her parents might be.
The group was arrested Friday night at an undisclosed location in northern Maricopa County.

“It was part of a human-smuggling investigation that we’ve been investigating throughout the Valley,” sheriff’s spokesman Chris Hegstrom told azcentral.com.

The girl was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which said it transferred her to the custody of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of Refugee Resettlement.

What rule of law?

TimesFreePress - Author unknown: With President Obama's unilateral granting of amnesty to roughly 1 million illegal aliens, he has made his contempt for the rule of law undeniable.

Congress has not acted as he believes it should to legalize people who are in the United States unlawfully and who are taking jobs from U.S. citizens and consuming costly social services. So, Obama simply has imposed his will on an unwilling nation.

Brooking no disagreement, he declared that "It's the right thing to do, period. We are a better nation than one that expels innocent young kids."

With all due respect, Mr. Obama, we are a better nation than one where a president sworn to uphold the Constitution takes it upon himself to override the wishes of the people as expressed through their elected members of Congress.

There was such a public furor when Democrats and Republicans alike tried to pass misnamed "comprehensive immigration reform" in 2007 that the legislative effort collapsed under the combined weight of its absurdity and unpopularity. And, in fact, the American people have made it clear they do not believe that declaring illegal aliens legal -- whether by fiat or by legislation -- is the right path for our nation to take.

Obama would like to frame the issue as one of his supposedly humane policy prescriptions versus a draconian roundup and deportation of millions of illegal aliens.

That's nonsense. We know what will happen if we start saying many of those who are here illegally may remain and receive work permits: Whatever the precise details of this latest amnesty scheme, millions more around the globe will see a renewed incentive to slip into our country illegally or to overstay their visas when they visit.

And realistically, few voices are calling for a massive roundup of the 11 million to 20 million illegal aliens now in the United States. There is no need for such a thing. If laws forbidding the hiring of illegal immigrants are enforced and illegal aliens are denied all but emergency taxpayer-funded benefits, a great many of them will deport themselves because they will lack a source of income here.

That is humane, and it upholds the rule of law.

But Obama seems to believe the law should be exactly what he says it is, according to his personal views -- which, at least so far as illegal immigration is concerned, are in jarring contrast to the views of the American people.

His willingness to ignore the constitutional separation of powers is vastly more alarming than even his appalling actions on this specific issue. In the months remaining before what we fervently hope will be his resounding defeat, he can cause immeasurable harm to the very idea that ours is a nation of laws, not of men. And that's to say nothing of what awaits America if he is re-elected and believes that he has public approval for his executive branch overreach.

Katy, bar the door. And seal the border while you're at it.
