Texas Democrats, President Obama, Robert Byrd and a week of irony

Texas Democrats helped give Barack Obama some support during their weird and party boss-driven primary/caucus system a couple of years ago, but apparently they forgot his name during their convention this past weekend.

Meanwhile, President What’s-His-Name gets to swim in ironies of his own this week.  Gen Petraeus, or Gen Betray Us if you’re MoveOn, will get confirmed to run the Afghanistan war on President Obama’s nomination of him.  Back when MoveOn was smearing the great general in 2007, Sen Obama conspicuously did not have the general’s back.

And now that Sen Robert “Sheets” Byrd has passed on, the first black president gets to eulogize the last Klansman in the Senate.

Yes, we do need photo ID…to throw crap away at the dump

This is a genius post by Blue Dot Blues.  Kicker: In Texas you need a photo ID to haul junk to the dump.  But, thanks to the Democrats, you still don’t need photo ID to vote.

Oh, Democrats like photo ID for some things.  Like getting into their townhall meetings ‘n stuff if they think you’re planning to ask them a screwball question.

And based on what we’ve learned about Bill White, that son-of-a-vet would use your military ID to cancel your vote.

But demand a photo ID to vote?  Why, that’s just crazy talk is what that is.  If you’re a weasel Democrat.

Terror alert – and PIRATES – on the Texas/Mexico border

But…didn’t Nappy Napolitano say the other day that the border is secured?  Why yes, she did!

“I would bet you everything I own that Congress needs to take up comprehensive immigration reform,” she countered.

“I say this again, as someone who has walked that border, ridden it, flown it and driven it,” she said. “I believe it is as secure as it ever has been.”

Well then, Miss Securitypants, what are we to make of this?

The Department of Homeland Security is alerting Texas authorities to be on the lookout for a suspected member of the Somalia-based Al Shabaab terrorist group who might be attempting to travel to the U.S. through Mexico, a security expert who has seen the memo tells FOXNews.com.

The warning follows an indictment unsealed this month in Texas federal court that accuses a Somali man in Texas of running a “large-scale smuggling enterprise” responsible for bringing hundreds of Somalis from Brazil through South America and eventually across the Mexican border. Many of the illegal immigrants, who court records say were given fake IDs, are alleged to have ties to other now-defunct Somalian terror organizations that have merged with active organizations like Al Shabaab, al-Barakat and Al-Ittihad Al-Islami.

Somali terrorists.  Well ain’t that just nice.  Secure as it’s ever been, indeed.

As if that wasn’t enough, we apparently have actual frickin’ pirates sailing the not-so-high lakes on the border.  Falcon Lake, specifically.

McALLEN — Heavily armed Mexican freshwater pirates have been shaking down U.S. boaters on Falcon Lake, a reservoir and bass fishing haven that straddles the Rio Grande.

At least three such incidents have been reported since April 30, the latest on Sunday, according to a Texas Department of Public Safety warning issued Tuesday that linked the muggings to northern Mexico’s increasing lawlessness.

According to descriptions of the incidents, the robbers — in at least one case posing as Mexican federal law enforcement officers — searched fishermen’s boats for guns and drugs, then demanded cash at gunpoint.

One of the incidents reportedly occurred on the U.S. side of the lake.

“The robbers are believed to be members of a drug trafficking organization or members of an enforcer group linked to a drug trafficking organization who are … using AK-47s or AR-15 rifles to threaten their victims,” the DPS statement said. “They appear to be using local Mexican fishermen to operate the boats to get close to American fishermen.”

I couldn’t find any pictures of actual Mexican pirates on Falcon Lake, so this will have to do.

Not Mexican pirates, not Falcon Lake.

So what do we get from the feds for all this danger brewing on the border?  1200 National Guard troops – that’s less than a troop per mile on the border, and when you count the shifts, it’s probably three squads with a half dozen unloaded M-16s between ’em on a 2,000 mile border, plus a humvee or two and a remote controlled airplane.   And an Attorney General who cares more about nagging Arizona for passing a security law that’s just like a 70-year-old federal security law than he does about doing his actual damn job.

The Obama misadministration’s moves will do precisely frak all to secure the border, and people here see through it, aren’t fooled by it, and in fact are fed up with it.

This administration is treating the state of Texas, and in fact all of the border states, with undistilled contempt.  This administration is simultaneously bullying and lawless, frankly, and seems to be intent on making everything it touches infinitely worse than it was to begin with.

I mean, we’ve got pirates menacing Texas now.  What next, is Spain going to start sending frigates full of conquistadors?

An Open Letter to the Austin City Council

Dear Sirs and Ma’ams,

You are, to be blunt, morons.  Your boycott of Arizona for passing its border security law is idiotic, stupid, unfair and a demonstration of your utter liberal cluelessness.

Allow me to explain.

That law, SB 1070, is already the law of the land in the state of California.  That’s right – liberal California, the state that’s pretty much leading the boycott of Arizona, already has a nearly identical law on the books.  It’s just choosing not to enforce it.

But your stupidity is even more naked than that.  As you all might know if you had the barest interest in obtaining a clue, the Arizona law itself mirrors a federal law, the Alien Registration Act, which has been on the books for 70 years.  Democrats in Congress passed it, and a Democrat president – your beloved FDR – signed it into law.  The difference between the federal government and Arizona is, once again, a question of enforcement.

So you moonbats who are lucky enough to run a silly, unserious and decidedly weird and liberal city in the midst of a very strong state, are fools.  You’re protesting something that’s been on the books for years and decades, that Arizona needs to deal with its unwanted status as the kidnapping capital of the planet, and you’re protesting it in a way that is likely to hurt a lot of people and help none.  You are not hippies engaging in an annoying but harmless sit-in.  You are municipal leaders, or you’re supposed to be.  You’re charged with faithfully executing the laws of your city, this state and this nation.  Even the laws that you don’t like.  You don’t get to pick and choose.  That’s illegal.

But hey, you’ll probably break your arms patting yourselves on the back for making a Statement, even if said Statement says more about you than it says about reality.

And that’s why you’re morons.

Sincerely,

Alan Smithee

WH may move KSM trial from NY

Ya know, there’s this tropical island, and there’s a Marine base on it.  Word is, the government spent millions to build facilities for just this sorta thing. Funny that the nimrod in charge hadn’t thought of using it.
