For months we have been saying that President Obama is on a literal Jihad to pummel Arizonans into submission. His main tool for doing so is to restrict Arizona’s law enforcement from defending Arizonans against illegal drug trafficking. Drug traffickers use illegal aliens as mules for drug transportations and as a means to hide amongst hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants.
Obama is even suing the sheriff departments in Arizona trying to prevent them from enforcing immigration laws.
The result is that Arizona has become a much more dangerous place. Certain parts of the state are now controlled by drug traffickers.
“Arizona Sheriff: Obama ‘Undermining’ Law on the Border

An Arizona sheriff contends that President Obama is “undermining the rule of law” by blocking the border enforcement needed to prevent illegals and narco-terrorists from flooding into the United States from Mexico.
In an exclusive Newsmax.TV interview, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said the administration has actively thwarted law enforcement efforts to help secure the border.
As a consequence, Mexican drug cartels now control some parts of Arizona, says Babeu, who is president of the Arizona Sheriff’s Association.
“Every day, there are paramilitary, squad-sized elements who are out escorting drugs or human illegals with AK-47s,” he said. “And they have scouts on top of high points of terrain, hilltops, and literally for miles and miles they control movement in these areas.
“Now we’re the ones who patrol this area. And I can tell you quite honestly that we do not control those parts of the area, because we’re not there all the time. And they know when we’re there and when we’re not there. We don’t even have a helicopter.”
Babeu, an outspoken supporter of Arizona’s controversial new immigration law, said the administration has made it more difficult to protect citizens on an increasingly unstable border.’ More…
But what could possibly be themotive for putting Arizonans wellbeing at risk like this?Quite simply, Obama is desperate for votes for the November elections and if it means putting people at risk so be it.
He is now trying to shore up the Hispanic voting base by sneaking in amnesty by way of the defense appropriations bill about to be voted on in the Senate. Illegals who have a high school GED or are under 35 years of age who go to college will qualify for blanket amnesty. Obama who often complains that his opponents hold all his pet projects “hostage” is now holding the defense bill hostage. Either the senate passes blanket amnesty or the troops don’t get funded.
There is one positive here. With 45 days until the elections, every democrat is now running on blanket amnesty for all. The rule of law be damned. This they cannot deny.
‘“Obama buoys DREAM Act backers
Ryan Hagen, Staff Writer
Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants received encouraging news this week when President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., moved to open a path to citizenship for immigrants by supporting the DREAM Act.
Elysa Valdez, a sociology professor at Cal State San Bernardino, said action on immigration was overdue but appreciated.
“(Obama) needs to step up to the plate and do as he promised during the campaign, that he would address the issue and do some kind of reform plan,” she said.
On Wednesday, Obama once again voiced support for the DREAM Act, which he has said was a good idea but should not distract from more comprehensive reforms. Reid said he plans to insert the legislation into a defense bill on Tuesday.
The Dream Act would allow illegal immigrants who entered the United States more than five years ago, at the age of 16 or younger, to become citizens by earning a college degree or serving in the military. ‘ More…
