First Amendment to the United States Constitution notwithstanding, who the hell does Mexican President Felipe Calderon think he is coming into our House and badmouthing this country and its right to police itself as we see fit?

Freedom of speech, yes, but with decorum and diplomacy. One does not denigrate one’s host country when invited to speak within the House Chamber on Capitol Hill. And shame on those members of the House and Senate who stood and applauded Calderon instead of standing to walk out while he took to task a foreign government for passing laws to protects its borders while his own country continues to turn a blind eye to that very issue. All those standing, fawning, sycophantic disgraces to their Congressional offices should be targeted for defeat this November.

Calderon disingenuously said there is a “need for a more orderly border.” In fact, it’s to Calderon’s and Mexico’s benefit that little be done to discourage Mexicans from sneaking across its northern border and invade the United States. Once these deadbeat Mexicans leave their home country, they cease to be Calderon’s financial, legal, educational or medical problems, and they become problems of the United States.

Calderon called Arizona’s SB 1070 “discriminatory toward Mexicans,” for allowing police to question people’s immigration status. The law allows police to question all people’s immigration status should it be warranted, and not just willy-nilly. The law does not discriminate against any ethnic group, but instead those people who have broken Federal or Arizona state laws by committing the crime of entering and remaining in the United States illegally – regardless of their country of origin.

Can United States citizens illegally enter Mexico without repercussions? Can United States citizens demand, upon entering Mexico illegally, that they be provided with free education, health care coverage, food stamps, documents/signs be printed in English and a pathway to citizenship? Absolutely not. In fact, Mexico has immigration laws infinitely more Draconian that those which are on the books in the United States giving his people and those from myriad other countries free passes to the tune of billions of dollars out of the pockets of taxpaying American citizens and legal residents.

Here’s a message to el presidente Calderon: go home to Mexico and fix your own house. If your country were not in the shambles in which it currently finds itself – deleterious economy, a murder rate out of control, rampant drug import/export, pollution on par with China, your citizens would not spend their time sneaking out of Mexico and into the United States – my country.

Calderon is but the tip of the iceberg, as he is on the outside looking in. Barack Obama must shoulder the brunt of the blame, first for continuing the presidential trend of not enforcing the federal laws that forced Arizona to pass SB 1070 in the first place.

Additionally, Obama, a.k.a. the fear-mongerer in chief caused quite a stir by suggesting families with small children on an ice cream outing would be plucked from the streets and summarily deported because he expected the police to violate SB 1070. Obama has problems giving police respect as he condemned the Cambridge, MA police deriding them for “acting stupidly,” when he knew nothing of the facts of the case in question. He just assumed – and we all know what happens when one assumes.

The question of illegal immigration will only continue to worsen before it ever improves and having the likes of a foreign ruler chide this country when he has no control over the affairs of his own state do nothing but exacerbate the already tenuous situation.

Whether it is the continuing invasion on the southern border of the United States, or the gang problem in places like Los Angeles, or day laborer problem in places like Northern Virginia, until incentives to invade our borders are removed, the problem will only remain an unsolvable invitation to foreign miscreants.

    George Grayson, via CIS had this to say:

    Just imagine if President Barrack Obama paid a state visit to Mexico, which included a welcome highlighted by pomp and circumstances when his helicopter arrived on the South Lawn of the White House, an elaborate luncheon hosted by top officials at the State Department, and a State Dinner at Los Pinos.

    Then suppose that Obama addressed the Mexican Congress and sharply scolded them for domestic problems that irritated him and complicated bilateral relations.

    He might have begun by emphasizing the nationalistic dogma that “El petróleo es el nuestro” (”The oil is ours”) – a policy, enshrined in article 27 of Mexico’s constitution, that prohibits “risk contracts” in oil exploration and development. Rather than having private firms invest in finding and developing hydrocarbon reservoirs – and possibly benefit from successes – the revenues of Pemex, the state oil monopoly, flow into the national government’s budget. This transfer means that there are far fewer pesos with which to provide adequate health-care, job-training, and regional development to uplift the 40 percent of the masses living in hard-scrabble poverty.

    Obama might then turn to the stranglehold that the STPRM Oil Workers’ Union has on the state oil firm, which is suffused by corruption, inefficiency, declining output, and feather-bedding. Pemex has roughly three times more employees than comparable private corporations. The visiting dignitary could even refer to the history of “suicidios petroleros” in which opponents of the union allegedly died by their own hand – with three bullets in their heads.

    While on the topic of labor organizations, the U.S. chief executive might spend a few minutes on the SNTE Teachers’ Union, led by Elba Esther Gordillo whom the late scholar M. Delal Baer referred to as “Jimmy Hoffa in a skirt.” Not only has the union amassed a fortune that would be the envy of Midas by selling teaching jobs and peddling influence, it has damaged the quality of public education to the point that most middle-class families will make whatever sacrifices are necessary to enroll their youngsters in private schools.

    Meanwhile, “la Maestra” Gordillo has placed hundreds, probably thousands, of her cadres into the Public Education Ministry where they can collects handsome paychecks every 15 days without even having to show up for work.

    If Obama really wanted to transcend preaching to begin meddling, he could emphasize how Mexico’s governors have immunized themselves from public influence. They now rule like latter-day viceroys thanks to a compliant press (whose owners fear losing state advertising), economic bonds to the private sector (whose members salivate for government contracts), blatant manipulation of states legislatures (whose deputies receive extravagant salaries and benefits in return for rubber-stamping executive initiatives), and malleable state electoral institutes (whose counselors owe their well-paying, prestigious jobs to state executives).

    Of course, it’s equally difficulty for average citizens to hold federal officials accountable: neither the 500 deputies nor the 128 senators can run for immediate reelection; 40 percent of the former and 25 percent of the latter win election via proportional representation lists, which party bosses configure; these same political pooh-bahs along with governors personally select most of the other congressional nominees, without the inconvenience of open conventions and primaries; and independent candidacies are verboten.

    Should a foreign leader mention such sensitive topics in the San Lázaro congressional palace, he would be the target of Mexico’s sibilant version of the Bronx cheer, walk-outs by law makers, and hastily made posters decrying his admonitions. In the past, deputies have either mooned speakers whose words rankled or donned pig masks to show their contempt. Needless to say, a clamor would erupt to have visiting dignitary declared persona non grata and given the bum’s rush out of the country.

    Still, official Washington rolled out the red carpet for Mexican President Felipe Calderón during his May 19-20 visit. He went before a joint session of Congress and told his audience how to run the United States. He asked for – “demanded” would be a better word – a change in gun laws, immigration policy, and the right for illegal aliens to be treated like welcomed guests rather than lawbreakers in Arizona. Worst of all, many representatives and senators applauded his intrusiveness into U.S. domestic affairs.

    The double standard is alive and well, and Mexico takes full advantage of this blatant inconsistency.

    Calderon is right at home speaking to the American political machine in that manner as he is a guest of our Post-American President who has made it a point to circle the globe apologizing for alleged mistakes, all in the effort to seek U.N. approval of his European-lack-o-spine globalist persona.

    This will most likely be followed my numerous state visits from other pseudo-friendly foreign dignitaries who will come to bash America. But our “progressive” leadership will advise us not to take it personally as this is merely a necessary hazing exercise required prior to our acceptance into the fraternity of the New World Order, uh, sorry, World Governance.

    Mexico is hopelessly and irreversibly corrupt. It is in need of another “Punitive Expedition.” Who is willing to be today’s Winfield Scott or Black Jack Pershing?

    Just wondering, does President Felipe Calderón know where that Mexican Presidential candidate is hiding? Or did he (Calderón) hire a few coyotes to take the candidate across the border into the USA!

    Here is an article on another illegal who came here to work.


    I know of a procedure that if implemented would guarantee that this rapist would never again set foot in the USA!

    New World Order is so 1990’s. It’s progressed to the New International Order… like Obama inviting Mexicans to give orders to Congress regarding laws they need to pass.

    WEST POINT, N.Y. — President Obama on Saturday pledged to shape a new “international order” as part of a national security strategy that emphasizes his belief in global institutions and America’s role in promoting democratic values around the world.

    Speaking to the graduating class at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point — the ninth wartime commencement in a row, he said — the commander in chief who is leading two foreign wars expressed his faith in cooperation and partnerships to confront the economic, military and environmental challenges of the future.

    “The international order we seek is one that can resolve the challenges of our times,’” he said in prepared remarks. “Countering violent extremism and insurgency; stopping the spread of nuclear weapons and securing nuclear materials; combating a changing climate and sustaining global growth; helping countries feed themselves and care for their sick; preventing conflict and healing its wounds.”

    The administration is set to officially release the president’s first national security strategy next week, and Obama’s preview on Saturday suggests it will be far different than the first one offered by his predecessor in 2002. In that prior document, President George W. Bush formally called for a policy of preemptive war and a “distinctly American internationalism.”

    Obama has spoken frequently about shaping new alliances with the world, and of attempts to repair the U.S. image abroad after nearly a decade in which Bush’s approach was viewed with suspicion in many quarters. In his commencement speech to the graduates, the president emphasized his beliefs in those alliances.

    “Yes, we are clear-eyed about the shortfalls of our international system. But America has not succeeded by stepping outside the currents of international cooperation,” he said. “We have succeeded by steering those currents in the direction of liberty and justice — so nations thrive by meeting their responsibilities, and face consequences when they don’t.” (WTF?)

    Obama said the United States will pursue a strategy of “national renewal and global leadership.”

    And yet, even as he calls for global cooperation, Obama has intensified America’s own war in Afghanistan.

    And his administration has repeatedly confronted the dangers of Islamic terrorism on U.S. soil, including unsuccessful attempts to down a Detroit-bound airliner and to explode a car bomb in New York’s Times Square.

    To the men and women in the hall, many of whom are headed to Afghanistan because of the expansion of the war he announced here six months ago, Obama pledged “the full support of a proud and grateful nation.”

    The president expressed confidence in the military’s ability to succeed in Afghanistan, but warned of a “tough fight” ahead as the United States helps the Afghan people to rebuild its civil institutions and its security system so they can battle the Taliban and other extremists on their own.

    “We have brought hope to the Afghan people; now we must see that their country does not fall prey to our common enemies,” he said. “There will be difficult days ahead. But we will adapt, we will persist, and I have no doubt that together with our Afghan and international partners, we will succeed in Afghanistan.”

    In Iraq, he said, the United States is “poised” to end its combat operations this summer, leaving behind “an Iraq that provides no safe haven to terrorists; a democratic Iraq that is sovereign, stable and self-reliant.”

    “You, and all who wear America’s uniform, remain the cornerstone of our national defense and the anchor of global security,” he said. “And through a period when too many of our institutions have acted irresponsibly, the American military has set a standard of service and sacrifice that is as great as any in this nation’s history.”

    But he said civilians must answer the call of service as well, by securing America’s economic future, educating its children and confronting the challenges of poverty and climate change. He said the country must always pursue what he called the “universal rights” rooted in the Constitution. ( WHAT “UNIVERSAL RIGHTS” ARE IN OUR CONSTITUTION? THESE RIGHTS WERE FOR THE FOUNDERS AND THEIR “POSTERITY”).

    “We will promote these values above all by living them — through our fidelity to the rule of law and our Constitution, even when it’s hard; and through our commitment to forever pursue a more perfect union,” he said.

    To the cadets themselves, he praised their pursuit of being “soldier-scholars” and lauded the records of academic excellence the Class of 2010 has set. He also took note of the fact that the class’s top two graduates this year are both women, reflecting, he said, the “indispensable role” that women play in the modern military.

    As they become commissioned officers in the Army, Obama told the graduates of West Point that the country owes them a debt of gratitude.

    “Here in the quiet of these hills, you have come together to prepare for the most difficult tests of our time’” Obama said. “You signed up knowing your service would send you into harm’s way, and did so long after the first drums of war were sounded. In you we see the commitment of our country, and timeless virtues that have served our nation well.”


    Community organizer Obama offered training in the poverty pimp “Get in their face” how-to on forcing bank officers to offer up sub-prime loans. ACORN is no longer a good front for them so they’re using SEIU to do the dirty work.

    Organized community = lynch mob

    Obama wants to be the organizer for the international community.

    “Mexican President Felipe Calderon came to the United States, criticized us in our own house, they had the pleasure of having a State dinner at the White House, courtesy of President Obama. Watch this video where President Obama calls for people to make, “…a sacrifice for the next generation”. Then, take a look at the party pictures and tell me if you think that, A) Calderon deserves a party and, B) This party looks like Obama is ready to make any sacrifices himself.

    He’s partying with your money, and entertaining a Mexican leader that insulted America. I hope people never forget these images…..”

    Kudos to President Felipe Calderon for defending and standing up for his country.

    Shame on Obama and the U.S. government for giving ours away.

    I sure can’t blame other world leaders for protecting, defending, and
    elevating their nations.

    But, I can hold our government in contempt for allowing, and yes even
    causing, the U.S. to be drug in the dirt.

    Shame on Obama and his fellow traitors for encouraging and supporting the fall of the U.S.

    Shame on us if we continue to allow to happen.

    President Obama declares that the United States is not defined by its borders, goes hand in hand with the position of Calderon, from back in 2007 “I have said that Mexico does not stop at its border, that wherever there is a Mexican, there is Mexico,” he said. “And, for this reason, the government action on behalf of our countrymen is guided by principles, for the defense and protection of their rights.”

    President Obama declares we must pursue “universal rights” in the constitution. His globalist comrades over at the U.N. have a “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”.
    Perhaps Gibbs could remind the President that Americans declare that “they have been endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights”.

    President Obama leaves Netanyahu at the table and weeks later puts on a big show for Karzi after he threatens to join the Taliban.

    Mark Twain may be right afterall.

    “History has tried hard to teach us that we can’t have good government under politicians. Now, to go and stick one at the very head of the government couldn’t be wise.”

    Obama and Calderon have showed a lot of hypocritical attitude and actions. Calderon wants us to ignore our own laws while he has deported more illegals in his country that we do. Plus the Mexican counsitution denies legal immigrants a lot of rights (such as the right to vote) even when they become citizens. Obama could have prevented the new law being passed in AZ by simply enforcing the Federal ones and reform immigration laws so we can have a relative simple and inexpensive process for honest, hard-working people to immgrate here. Now we have a system that is broken, doesn’t protect us from anything and creates a system of exploitation and crime.

    Calderon does not believe the US has the same rights as Mexico. They see the US as a territory to colonize, nothing more.

    President Felipe Calderón of Mexico … implored lawmakers in Washington to restore a ban on the assault weapons often used by [Mexican] traffickers.

    ” You’ve heard this shocking “fact” before — on TV and radio, in newspapers, on the Internet and from the highest politicians in the land: 90 percent of the weapons used to commit crimes in Mexico come from the United States.
    – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said it to reporters on a flight to Mexico City.

    – CBS newsman Bob Schieffer referred to it while interviewing President Obama.

    – California Sen. Dianne Feinstein said at a Senate hearing: “It is unacceptable to have 90 percent of the guns that are picked up in Mexico and used to shoot judges, police officers and mayors … come from the United States.”

    – William Hoover, assistant director for field operations at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, testified in the House of Representatives that “there is more than enough evidence to indicate that over 90 percent of the firearms that have either been recovered in, or interdicted in transport to Mexico, originated from various sources within the United States.”

    There’s just one problem with the 90 percent “statistic” and it’s a big one:

    It’s just not true.”

    “In a very rare event, the president of Mexico addressed a joint session of the United States Congress last Thursday. Unfortunately, Felipe Calderon abused the opportunity by lying to the assembled representatives, senators, and government officials for the express benefit of his faltering country.

    It has already been widely reported that Calderon misrepresented Arizona’s new immigration enforcement law. His own nation’s laws punishing even poorer immigrants surging up from Central America are far more draconian, but the obvious hypocrisy apparently left no foul taste in his mouth.

    What was more pathetic about his speech in front of our government is that he attacked laws Americans have passed to protect our citizens from the kidnappers, drug dealers, and murderers that are Calderon’s most worrisome export … and he received a standing ovation from Democrats for his effort.

    Homeland Security Secretary (and former Arizona governor) Janet Napolitano and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder actually leapt to their feet in agreement with Calderon — objecting to a simple ten-page law they admit to not having read and which mirrors U.S. laws they will not enforce.

    This was all widely seen and covered. Calderon’s second blatant lie, however, although greeted with another standing ovation from Democrats, curiously has received very little coverage and no critical opposition whatsoever.

    That deception came as Calderon attempted to further meddle in U.S. affairs, declaring that Congress should reinstate the failed Clinton-era assault weapons ban to help in his battle against Mexican drug cartels:

    “There is one issue where Mexico needs your cooperation. And that is stopping the flow of assault weapons and other deadly arms across the border,” Calderon said to a standing ovation from U.S. lawmakers.

    Calderon said the increase in violence in Mexico had coincided with the 2004 lifting of a U.S. assault weapons ban.

    The 10-year ban on the sale of assault weapons to civilians expired without being extended by Congress. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has said the administration favors reinstituting the ban, though gun rights groups oppose it.

    Calderon said he respects Americans’ Second Amendment right to bear arms, but said many of the guns are getting into the hands of criminals.

    Mexico has seized around 75,000 guns and assault weapons in the last three years, Calderon said. He said more than 80 percent of them came from the United States, and noted there were more than 7,000 gun shops along the border.

    “I would ask Congress to help us, with respect, and to understand how important it is for us that you enforce current laws to stem the supply of these weapons to criminals and consider reinstating the assault weapons ban,” he said.

    President Calderon’s assertion that Mexico has seized around 75,000 guns and assault weapons in the last three years — and that more than 80 percent of them came from the United States — is a bald-faced lie. It simply is not remotely connected to the truth….”


    The Mexican Mafia get most assault weapons from Mexican Army deserters or soldier-thieves. They are packing machine guns, hand grenades, and bazookas.

    You don’t get these at the fripping Walmart in El Paso.

    Let’s cut out the crap on this claimed non-reading of the Arizona law by Obama, Holder, Napolitano and crew… these deceitful blastards have been pouring over this law like mad looking for the proverbial chink in the armor…. the law is airtight … They’ve all read it and dissected it a hundred ways from Sunday. But they can’t say that because they’d look like idiots if they admitted to reading it and were spinning it the way they are. These are lawyers, after all.
