There are many things that compete for the most outrageous thing in America.
There’s the actions of union thugs at town hall meetings, beating and intimidating average citizens who want to be heard or just sell a flag.
There’s the amazing amount of waste in the Stimulus bill, including money for “coked-up stimulus monkeys.”
There’s Jersey Shore.
But without a doubt, the most outrageous thing in America right now is the fact that American land in under control by foreign drug smugglers and human traffickers and the federal government has done nothing about it but put up signs telling Americans to stay out.
I know I have written about this before. But it is so amazing to me that this is going on and no one in Washington is outraged about it that I feel it has to be brought up again.
Consider how outrageous this is.
Mexican drug cartels have set up base in the mountains of Arizona, which are, as much as liberals hate it, still part of the United States of America. They are controlling those mountains with weapons that are certainly illegal, and no member of the House of Representatives or Senate is standing on the floor of Congress demanding that something be done about it.
One of the people that actuall is trying to deal with this is Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu. He made headlines when he recently called the federal government the enemy of the people:
“What’s very troubling is the fact that at a time when we in law enforcement and our state need help from the federal government, instead of sending help they put up billboard-size signs warning our citizens to stay out of the desert in my county because of dangerous drug and human smuggling and weapons and bandits and all these other things and then, behind that, they drag us into court with the ACLU,” Babeu said.
The sheriff was referring to the law suits filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and the U.S. Department of Justice challenging the state’s new immigration law.
“So who has partnered with the ACLU?” Babeu said in a telephone interview with CNSNews.com. “It’s the president and (Attorney General) Eric Holder himself. And that’s simply outrageous.”
“Our own government has become our enemy and is taking us to court at a time when we need help,” Babeu said.
While law enforcement is busy dealing with lawsuits and paranoid that some legitimate action they take will be warped and spun into an act of overt racism by the ACLU, the bad guys are running the border.
Babeu says that his men are “outmanned and outgunned by drug traffickers.”
“Mexican drug cartels literally do control parts of Arizona,” he said. “They literally have scouts on the high points in the mountains and in the hills and they literally control movement. They have radios, they have optics, they have night-vision goggles as good as anything law enforcement has.
“This is going on here in Arizona,” he said. “This is 70 to 80 miles from the border – 30 miles from the fifth-largest city in the United States.”
These same people are also the reason Phoenix has become the kidnapping capital of the USA. Recently a young girl was picked up in Arizona, drug to Mexico and ransomed. When they realized the caper wouldn’t pay, they dumped the girl in the Mexican desert to die.
She was lucky. Consider the story of freelance human smuggler, Jaime Andrade, who was kidnapped in Phoenix by rival coyotes:
For two and a half days after Andrade’s abduction, the kidnappers — including a man whom Andrade later said had been a friend — deprived their victim of food and water. Through the door of the closet where he was held, Andrade could hear the cries of other victims being tortured in the house, the report said.Meanwhile, Valencia had defied the kidnappers and called police, who listened to Andrade “scream and howl in pain” over the phone as the kidnappers tried to cut off his ear and a finger. The torture would continue until Valencia came up with the ransom, the kidnappers told her.
They were true to their word.
Andrade was pistol-whipped and beaten with a baseball bat and the butt of a rifle. The kidnappers tried to gouge out his eye and slashed open his left eyebrow. They burned his back as well — presumably, police said, with a blowtorch found at the scene. Read how the next door neighbors knew nothing of this
The blindfolded Andrade “could feel his pants and underwear being cut open by an unknown person,” he told police. He was told to bend over and was beaten when he refused.
“Jaime felt his legs being forced apart and heard Aldo say he was going to get his money,” the report said. The kidnappers then sodomized him with a broomstick, a pair of scissors and a wooden dowel used to hang clothes in a closet.
Where is the outrage?
Do we need to redefine the problem in terms that might actaully raise the hackles on the back of a liberals neck?
They have guns, liberals. Big ones. Perhaps we should send the ATF into take them.
They are destroying the environment. Maybe some members of the EPA and Greenpeace need to go up there and check out the damage being done the natural beauty of the American southwest.
And honestly, why is there no concern from this president or the liberal dominated Congress about human rights violations? There is human trafficking going on in these areas and they know it. They put it on the signs!
Why is nothing being done to end it? Why is it being allowed to continue? Politics?
You know that’s what it is.
Drug smugglers are being allowed to control parts of America, human beings are being trafficked into and out of those areas and people are being kidnapped and tortured and nothing is being done because we don’t want to alienate a protected class of voters who might choose to vote for the other guy.
This, my friends, is the most outrageous thing in America right now. What are you going to do about it?
Are you going to call your Congressman and tell him that he or she needs to do something about this? Are you going to call you Senator and demand they take some kind of action? Are you going to attend a town hall and bring this to the attention of everyone there?
What are you going to do? Because if we don’t do something, no one will.
