More Bail Out Outrage: $197 Million to Mexico!
By: John Lillpop
Because we the people have been so preoccupied with the $850 billion bailout of Wall Street, the wrangling back and forth for billions more in welfare to auto makers, and the hilarious sitcom in which the Democrat Party has imploded in HDTV before our very eyes, critically important news has escaped the wrath it so richly deserves.
Specifically, while Americans were focused on the ongoing demolition of our economy and serious challenges to President-elect Obama’s integrity, the Bush administration released $197 million dollars to third world Mexico on December 3.
Regrettably, that is just the first payment of a $400 million aid package slated to be sent to Mexico, ostensibly to be used to fight drug cartels. (1)
Pause and ponder: While America’s economy teeters on the brink of depression, the U.S. sends hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to a hopelessly corrupt, inept foreign nation, in the hope that those millions might be used to keep Mexico’s drugs out of America.
That is incredibly stupid, at best. It would be like paying to have a neighbor’s smelly garbage hauled away because he refuses to do so, thereby causing said garbage to overflow onto your pristine property.
Consider this report from the Los Angles Times (2), about how Mexico’s highest-ranking drug official (until he resigned in July), reflects south of the border values and culture when it comes to drug cartels:
“Noe Ramirez Mandujano, a veteran federal prosecutor who headed an elite organized crime unit was arrested on suspicion of passing intelligence to drug gangsters based in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, Mexican Atty. Gen. Eduardo Medina Mora said.”
That information was known to the U.S. before $197 million dollars of our money were released to Mexico. Talk about goofy thinking and good money chasing bad!
No doubt, that $197 million check from the U.S. Treasury has been deposited in a special Mexican bank account designated as the ” Noe Ramirez Mandujano defense fund.”
The Mexican bail out would not be quite so outrageous were it not for the fact that anywhere from 12-38 million illegal aliens from Mexico are currently squatting in America at a cost of hundreds of billions of dollars in stolen public services each year.
Furthermore, millions of those illegal aliens are employed in jobs that are desperately needed by American citizens as our economy continues to unravel.
Rather than sending even another peso to corrupt Mexico, America needs to secure our borders with military force and move to deport each and every illegal alien.
How likely is that?
There is a bright side: With our nation perilously close to economic collapse, amnesty for illegal aliens is clearly dead.
However, will our leaders muster the courage to face reality and begin the process of forcibly removing illegal aliens in order to save America?
