Michele Bachmann: "America's Failure to Secure the Border is Now a Terrorism Issue"

Michele Bachmann with state Senate President Russell Pearce and Congressman Trent Franks. Yikes.
Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was in Phoenix this morning, where she met with local politicos at the State Capitol to talk about illegal immigration and, to quote Senator John McCain, completing "the dang fence."

Aside from blowing a few kisses at the asses of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce, Bachmann told reporters that the lack of a border fence is no longer just an immigration issue, it's a terrorism issue.

"[The United States] had an extraordinary week with threats of terrorism. We saw that there was an international assassination plot between Iran and Saudi Arabia, and they were bringing in the usefulness of those dealing with cartels below our southern border," Bachmann says.
"This is an international terrorism issue. We know that 59,000 [people] other than Mexicans have come across America's borders. Those include from states sponsoring terror. That would be the state of Syria...this is a very real issue. It is a national-security issue."

Bachmann, after meeting with Pearce, Congressman Trent Franks, state Senator Steve Smith, and Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever, says one of the keys to securing the border is building the fence.

Last week, Herman Cain, one of Bachmann's opponents in the GOP presidential primary, joked that he planned to build a 20-foot electrified fence to keep illegal immigrants from coming into the United States from Mexico.

According to Bachmann, building the fence is no joke.

"This is no laughing matter, the border fence," she says. "We've seen jokes made by presidential candidates about the fence. It is not a joke. This is a real issue -- it's a serious issue."

Just like when she puckered up for Arpaio last month, Bachmann stressed the importance of getting rid of the "magnets" that attract illegal immigrants to the United States.

"It is a magnet for the United States to offer free medical care. It is a magnet when the United States offers free education assistance. It is a magnet when, for instance, under ObamaCare, services are offered [to illegal immigrants], even though there's language [in the law] that says health benefits will not be offered [to illegal immigrants] under ObamaCare," Bachmann rambles.

"There's a prohibition from asking the legal status of those who come to utilize ObamaCare. While every American citizen will be forced to pay for ObamaCare, illegal aliens will not be paying for ObamaCare...it is time to stop the financial magnets for illegal aliens."

Some "One-Percenters" dropped by to check out Bachmann's speech.
According to Bachmann, illegal immigration costs every household of U.S. citizens $1,000 a year.

The congresswoman also weighed in on SB 1070, Arizona's controversial immigration law credited largely to Pearce.

"I back the law that Senator Russell Pearce has introduced here in Arizona," Bachmann says. "I don't dis this law, I thank this law."

Although he wasn't there, Bachmann gave Arpaio a little love as she continues to try and woo him into endorsing her candidacy.

"[Arpaio] has been an example of local law enforcement that has actually enforced the laws that are on the books, and I want to encourage other sheriffs, like Sheriff Dever [to do the same]," she says.

Bachmann's presence in Phoenix, of course, was met by protesters, most of whom identified themselves as "99-Percenters," the same group that "occupied" Phoenix over the weekend.

Those heckling Bachmann this morning were about as credible as the "occupiers" who demonstrated in Phoenix on Saturday. See our take on the "Occupy Phoenix" demonstrations here.

"You're a hooker for hate," one demonstrator screeched through a megaphone as Bachmann walked to her SUV.

"Republicans represent the one-percent," she continued.

As Bachmann's vehicle left the Capitol, another protester sprinted after her SUV while carrying a sign and screaming "fuck you, bitch. Get out of here."

James King
"Fuck you bitch, get out of here," this protester screamed at Bachmann's SUV as it left the parking lot.

We'll be seeing presidential candidate Cain this afternoon as he, like Bachmann before him, gives Arpaio's ass a little smooch with the hopes that America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" will endorse his candidacy. Check back later for that story.

Hey Bachman, doesnt your own state have a Border into another country? 

Shouldnt you be putting up a fence to all of CANADA?

Making sure U.S. Citizens dont cross over and get cheaper drugs in Canada? Making sure Americans pay overpriced drugs here in america rather than getting good health care and cheaper drugs in canada?

Now with a terrorist threat the damn government will start to listen to the border states and may be do something about the Mexican border . One has to ask , Is this the first time for terrorist crossing at the Mexican border ,likely not. when I see the news showing stream after stream of illegal immigrants crossing and the border patrol is stopping one while another is moving steadily through the border a mile away .. Or when we can enjoy a state park along the border because the federal government has not stopped drug dealers using this corridor

Yes please dumb down, like you have in not putting up a wall Obama, and letting in all the terrorists the world holds to come across our borders. Thats what I call dumb. I live here and it is horrific. Obama wants them to get healthcare,  and social security. Not with my tax money. If you want to give them yours, why don't you stand on their side of the border and pass out your money to them so they don't have to come over here, and bring a doctor with you.

  I don't follow you... Obama is expanding what wars?  He has removed the majority of the Iraq soldiers, the rest are coming home with the exception of a [actually large] contingency of Embassy [also large, the biggest in the world] Guards.     He did alllocate more troops to Afganistan, kicked the shit out of El Quida AND the Taliban, and will now be moving on.  The Afganistan troop withdrawal is under discussion, however, with a neighbor like Pakistan it's even more complicated that the Iraq withdrawal.  I see the effort as being a success, unlike Russia who invaded some 20 years earlier ... our mission is different.  So he's well on his way to digging us out of a mired situation in 2 wars, niether of which he started.  I choose to call that reduction.  Are you referring to our "involvement" in Libya?  I've only seen reports of 1 american with boots on the ground over there.  A "volunteer" helping a REBEL friend in a cause that they both believe in.  Other than that we, along with several other NATO countries bombed the shit out of them while supplying the Rebels who are doing the ground work.  (incidently, under Bush the HW, the Iraqi rebels BEGGED for support, they wanted to take Saddam out then, Instead we, as soldiers were FORCED to turn our backs on them, many potential allies were murdered and/or tortured.  I know that for an absolute fact and that is only one reason why I despise the entire son-of-a-bitch Bush criminal clan). Pretty much the entire country has been secured by the rebels with the exception of 1 or 2 strongholds.  It was a WORLD effort to remove terrorist threat, consider another one effectively removed!  A couple more key figures were "surgically removed" by team Obama ... recall any names like Bin Laden?  Or how about the other one, he was born and raised in the U.S.!  Obama crossed a couple borders/lines to slap his illegal, terrorist ass down.  There is literally crap going on world wide on a daily basis and Obama has managed to keep us out of anymore wars with diplomacy, co-operation and the balls to target the right individuals. 

All things considered in the events over the last couple weeks do you think we would be invading Iran right now if Bush or McCain were in office... you can bet your ass we would!

Don't worry William, it's all a figment of Fox Televisions imagination. There is no terrorist threat from Mexico, because the heads that are cut off by the non-terrorist drug cartels in Mexico are different from the ones cut off by the terrorists in the Middle East, so we have nothing to worry about, according to Follower of the One and other highly deluded people.

They simply don't get it Linda. They see it as nothing more than a little issue involving Mexico's downtrodden, while it never seems to occur to them that we have millions of Americans that are downtrodden, and have our own problems. People that at one time paid taxes, some probably quite a bit of taxes, and who are now on the street. Engineers working as Busboys, driving trucks, even doing heavy manuel work, because so many factories and the jobs that went with them have been outsourced. They're in their own little fantasy world in Arizona, and as I said, most of their fellow Americans elsewhere seem to mean very little to them. Mexico always gets a pass, as if Mexico is helpless, rather than just plain loaded with criminals.I'm sure they will pooh, pooh, what I wrote about out of work engineers, even though a lot of other educated people are doing the same type of stuff, after losing their jobs. I don't get it, and I guess folks that think this way will always be a mystery to me.

I've seen one of your WALLS Linda, it was in the city of Berlin which was mired in East Germany until the mid 80's.  I saw the wall, the misery and tensions on BOTH sides of the monstrosity.  I've wanted to return to a united Germany just to see what life is like without the WALL or the IRON CURTAIN acting as a divide.  I wonder if all of the older WWII generation of Germans are watching, with sad recollection, this country's decent in the very facism they fell victim to in the 1930's under Hitler.?    Next time you sit and read your bible make sure you read the words of your Jesus talking of compassion.  Think about the fools saying Jesus would be supporting their efforts and then read the bible, see what Jesus did to the "money lenders" in the Temple.  Then look closely at the actions of the so called Christians and the cults that want to be called Christian and see if they adhere to their bible doctrine.  Is it a wonder why I see religion and the majority of it's followers as misguided?  The reason I bring the whole religion fiasco up?  Because that's what your Republican Leaders hide behind and use to manipulate their sheep... that would be you..are you ready to be slaughtered by your republican masters?

It was the right wing that opposed the revolution. Its leaders wanted to organize France along lines similar to the British constitutional model. Keep in mind that revolutionaries are left wingers. Socialism is leftwing. Communism is leftwing. Nazism (National Socialism) is leftwing. Modern-day liberals are left wingers. They understand the connection so well that they now call themselves “Progressives.” When you hear “Progressive politics,” think left wing, think socialism, think French revolutionaries. The radicals of the 1960s were leftwing agitators who had a truck load of “just causes” that led to mob violence, blowing up buildings, and calls for the violent overthrow of the “system.”

He increased troops and funding for Afganistan, we are building the worlds biggest embasy in Iraq, and still have 50,000 plus troops there, we are involved in Libya now, dabbling in Syria, and hell bent on causing problems or attacking Iran. While Pakistan, that is suppposed to be our ally, totally detests our duplicity. All of this was on Obama's watch. Obama is Bush on Steriods", controled by the same neo-con philosophy.. Even the far left, which so hailed him as being almost "savior like" has admitted that.

Here's an update for you buddy. How horrific is it? Just yesterday, in Texas, on the McAllen expressway, a gunfight erupted on the AMERICAN SIDE OF THE BORDER, between two well-know Mexican drug gangs  The driver of a Ford Expedition, Jorge Zavala, associated with Mexico's Gulf drug Cartel, was killed along with a 22 year old man who was a passenger, when a Chevy Tahoe pulled along side him and unloaded a volley of gunfire. Zavala was believed to be involved in an internal sturggle for power between the Rojos against the Metros. So, yeah, that's good advice to Linda to not worry about dishwashers. I would change your prescription for relieving her fear however, from not watching Fox News, to being more carefull on who is driving next to her on an American highway. Oh, yeah, and she might even take her bible along for comfort.

And.........I've got no problem with that. I even support the idea of allowing PRIVATE funding for college for adult illegal aliens that came here later and went through the public school system. But Governor Moonbeam, Jerry Brown, in California, had to take it a step further and force taxpayers to fund illegal alien students, while taking funding and college spots from legal students. It would have been racist, I guess, to tell those students to go and get a job and work their way through school as countless other American students have. But then some people will say, they aren't allowed to work here. Right, thus the insanity is made clear of allowing millions of people to enter this nation, when none of this countries systems are even prepared to take them. Oh, well, I do have the means to go back East, and put on argyle socks and sweater, and hand out at the Boston Mass. Starbucks, and discuss the price of the latest Beemer of Volvo, but I just wouldn't be able to contribute much to conversations of such gravity. That's why I stick with the "unimportant" stuff.

  There's a lot going on Bobby.  As you stated Bobby, it was a long long time a go in a far away place... a forgotten issue.  Problem is Bobby when people forget the events from a long time ago they tend to repeat the events that happened a long time ago... usually intentionally.  Sorry you can't see the entire picture... it is a work in progress.

There is one glimmer  of hope for you Bobby, you have an understanding that those elite are using this issue to divide us... that is good.  Now take one step back and visualize ,,,  focus on the picture.. can you now see the fact that the elite CREATED this situation to divide us. Simply, as the saying goes, in this case however you should "follow the money" back and you will find the instigators of said manipulation (who is making the money now, who will make the money in future and who wrote the laws [not just sponsored them]).   If you care to take a couple of more steps back you will find that ALL of the issues that divide us were created by the elite.  Notice Bobby that I didn't pander to either "party", nor did I dis either party, simply not an issue, they are both controlled by money, favors and campaign contributions.  There are a few standouts willing to stand up and show their balls, and out those on payola, then like Anthony Wiener, they end up stepping on their dicks.

Hell Bobby, you get to Phx before I'm fully relocated in Colorado stop by and have a beer.  You laugh about me being out there... I do have one quirk left over from days past... EVERYTIME I'm in public I always do a detailed panorama of my surroundings, even driving, that in it's self isn't bad ... pretty common really.  Now the "break-down" comes when I start checking roof tops and trees .... any elevated object for sniper nests!

What's really going on with you man? What does any of this have to do with the Holocaust, that happened in a far away place a long time ago. And what is this stuff about eighty year old Nazi's? Are you actually trying to make the point, that because you don't like the way some Americans perceive this issue, they are all indicted as Nazi's, even if they are eight years old? Man, .......you are reaching. The fact is, illegal aliens have a country, and that country, whichever one it is, needs to stedp up to the plate for its own people. The elite are so expertly using this issue to divide Americans, and you seem to be unaware of it.

Incidently Bobby, that was not intended to be a mean spirited reply.  It's reality as I see it based on events that have crossed my path and research I've done on my own ... primarily keeping a handle on current events (ignoring the sensationalism) and remembering the details and attempting to understand the cycles of history as they relate to those current events.

No Bobby, I have not gone off the deep end yet.  I'm not "Religious", but I have studied religion.  Nor am I an old German from the WWII era, however I've read quite a lot on the rise and fall of Hitler and the facist movement.  Although I know it's being denied "The Holocust" did happen and 6 million Jews died horribly because of it. 

The actions taken and propoganda spoken against the Mexican race closely mirror those against the Jews.  The "Junden" were the accountants and money handlers accused of extortion, thievery at it's most vile and naturally it "affected" every German citizen.  Thing is not all of the Jews where accountants and money handlers.. that didn't save their lives.

Bills like the SB1070 would (if fully unshackled) ultimately target all people with brown skin and eventually all skin pigments, not just the illegals.  Point in fact... the RICO act, it was introduced as an instrument to "battle organized crime".  Notice how EVERYTHING fits within the the catagory of organized crime these days?  The RICO act is employed as a method to "confiscate" the property of the criminal, thus their funded accounts have become very, very wealthy and relatively unmonitored ... well, monitored with "loopholes".  It is a product of the unholy "War on Drugs" that IS costing the American Taxpayer (YOU and ME) more than all of the education funding, cost of illegals and health insurance for poor sick folks put together. 

I'm not saying they are going to be exterminated, the Mexicans like the Jews, there's no money in that.  It's much more lucrative to build private prisons to house them at taxpayers expense.  5000 new beds here in sunny Az, 90% occupancy paid for by the taxpayer 60 dollars per day whether occupied or not. 

Bobby, when you take your blinders off, and you step back and look it's really ALL connected and it's very sick.  Talk about a nation that shit all over it's karma?  Ask some of the old germans how being part of the attempted genocide on the Jews eats karma, and the price they paid.  There are still 80 year Nazis being chased.  Well straight up Bobby, Arizona has already assumed the squat position and they are prepared to dump the load all over the state's karma and citizens. 

But Bobby, you live in Californication right?  Idonthaveallthefactsbut... isn't EVERYBODY in California swimming in the deep end or at least on shore with one foot firmly planted on a banana peel?  LMAO....

The point, as so many people are aware of now, is that the border, contrary to what the left mainly, and others say, IS OUT OF CONTROL. Some of you folks in Arizona can spin it anyway you like, but it's not reality. Illegal immigration is disastrous for this country, no matter who or where the illegal aliens come from. We had secrets given to China during the Clinton administration, by a known illegal alien, and the crap continues because our "leaders" have so many among them that are traitors, that it's mindboggling.

Honestly Bobby, was Zavala a dishwasher?  No I think not, I didn't even see mention of the word illegal on his behalf.  So what does the planned hit of a drug cartel operative, who was not a dishwasher and whose legal status was not established in your post have to do with Linda's fear?  How many non-cartel citizens were killed?  In other words it could have been a drive-by in LA or a Mob Hit in the Capone days ... just different cartels, these things happen and all of the events render the affect on Linda's life.... none!    And Linda, I sincerely apologize for my tone in previous posts.. this is a very frustrating subject for me, I do tend to be harsh.  The fear-mongering press and an out of control government scares me far more than the illegals.

  You've got to be kidding Bobby, oddly enough I live in Arizona, part time.  I read the Arizona news daily and I've yet to read about bodies piling up, well other than during Brewer's election.  And generally on the few occasions when there is a body, headless or not, it belongs to an illegal... which shouldn't pose a problem for you..unless you are an illegal.  As far as Border Agents being killed, my heart goes out to them and their families.    Here's a killer fact for you Bobby, Jan Brewer, governor or Arizona has killed more people cutting insurance benefits than the number of dead headless bodies found in the desert.  The only headless bodies of white people were brainless and not headless, they are commonly referred to as the AZ GOP Legislature and the AZ GOP Administration.

Fine with me, as long as you Arizonans actually believe it's good for you. No one can argue with that, because the problem is closer to you.

Linda, I suspect you know why the facts aren't coming out. In case you don't, just think of why the elite ran Obama. It's rather easy to see. Wall Street, and both the democrat and republican party already knew way before the election, what a criminal mess they made of the country. So they thought to themselves, who would be someone that we can put in as President, so we don't have to stop our criminality and that most people would be afraid to judge because of  who,  he,   is,.......etc.? More clues?

Bobby

Why pick out a lone American, a rarity in fact, compared to what's going on with the Mexican drug Cartels, where peoples heads are flying right and left and some of the most beautiful resorts in Mexico are going broke. But  again, It's Americans fault. Thousands of people that are now hooked on drugs, are to blame for not getting off of them even though it's known they change the very structure of the brain and it's not as simply as just say no, as the ignorant Nancy Reagan said. But lets blame those folks anyway and somehow justify Mexican criminality by doing it. Not too fair.

If they legalized drugs there would not be this fighting, just like legalizing prohibition did. But the higher ups do not want to do that. It puts money in their pockets, thats why; Obama's. Obama does not fight the drug wars, look at the mess he's in from Fast and Furious. Good old Rahm and I'm sure Obama has a lot to do with it. A total mess. Like Solyndra, why aren't the facts of this coming out? Or the other company Sun something or other. Because Obama is in this deep.

You sure do like to put words in other peoples mouths (figuratively speaking). You asked "Someone explain to me how terrorists arrive in any country."  I gave you an example of how one terrorist arrived in this country. How you interpreted that as supporting the drug cartels is a real stretch.

And since you brought it up, the drug wars in Mexico are a direct result of consumer demand in the US. A large part of the Drug Cartels funding would evaporate if the US had a rational drug policy regarding marijuana. Instead you have the DOJ, Jan Brewer, Tom Horne, and a host of others helping the drug cartels maintain there profits by putting as many obstacles in the way of a legal above the board dispensary system to obtain there doctor recommended medicine.

Why not Tommy? I actually run a small bakery and have time to shoot back and forth and read about what's going on in the good old U.S.A.  I listen to progressive radio when I can (Gary Null Show) to hear what their up to. Why shouldn't I consider every state in the U.S. my state? I've seen about half of the states. That's what a lot of the problem is, we allow politicians to divide us, and keep us preoccupied in our own little worlds, while THEY ARE RUINING THE WHOLE COUNTRY. I consider myself an heir to all of the U.S. When I harp on illegal immigration, and say it depresses both jobs and wages, than what I mean is it depresses both jobs and wages in Arizona, California, Utah, Michigan, South Carolina, etc. Some of you guys make it easy for these politicians to regularly screw us. You say, that you and others here are concerned about Sheriff Arpaio's criminal behavior. If that's true than you should know that he gets all kinds of support from certain counties in California. But how can you know that or even do anything about it, if you don't care what goes on in California?  See what I mean brother?
