White House denies blackmail
(Miami-Dade County Libertarian Examiner) -- by Larry Warrick --
In a recent town hall video posted by an Arizona ResistNet member, Senator Jon Kyle (R-Ariz) is shown stating that the Federal government is refusing to secure the southern border from illegal immigration as a tool to force lawmakers to support amnesty for illegal immigrants. During a discussion in the Oval office between the Senator and Barak Obama, the president reportedly said:
“The problem is; if we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform.”
In essence, Senator Kyle asserts that the administration is refusing to secure our borders, as is constitutionally mandated, until congress passes amnesty for illegal immigrants.
There is a word for this – Blackmail.
Yesterday, White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer denied the allegation, telling ABC News “The President didn’t say that and Senator Kyl knows it, there are more resources dedicated toward border security today than ever before, but, as the President has made clear, truly securing the border will require a comprehensive solution to our broken immigration system.” Throwing more money at the problem hasn’t been a solution so we want to throw more laws at it instead.
A Kyl spokesman said the senator stood by his account, which is "about as straight forward as you can get."
There is an emerging pattern here. In a previous article, I pointed out that the Obama administration is using the Gulf oil spill to further his ‘Cap and Trade’ agenda in much the same way. No ‘Cap and Trade', no stopping the flow of oil.
This, also, is blackmail. Blackmail is the grist of the Chicago political meat grinder and has no place in a nation governed by the rule of law. As I pointed out here, we are no longer a nation of laws, rather we are more and more falling under the rule of men. Men like Barak Obama...LINK
