  1. Re “border kids” – they’re not. They’re illegal invading immigrants. I resent the inference they’re just some benign species.
    And they are here probably to put the pressure on every district, state, city that is not solidly pro-obama.

  2. Got an idea for Eric Holder. You guys seem adept at giving up key captives for useless runaway soldiers. Why not use that skill to bring home Sgt Tahmooreesi from Mexico?

    We give them 100,000 illegals that crossed the Texas border in the last year, they give us the Sarge.

    Seems fair to me, no?


    • correction: The Sgt is not useless, just captive. By all records, the Sgt served his country with pride and honor and should be treated as such.


  3. The only reason the invasion of ‘the children’ (and God knows who else) dropped 25% in August is b/c of the HEAT! The border is still wide open despite ISIS and the hundreds of American passports/visas. It’s a good deal for ISIS – they can recruit MS13 gangbangers while en route to the US. What a wonderful world! /s/

  4. Why do PRESIDENTS have to visit schools on foreign, official trips like the NATO summit? That used to be reserved for First Ladies, right? Did Ike, JKF, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Regan, the first Bush do this? Which president started this practice? Anyone know?
