National Security Joke Is Getting Old
The joke bureauweenies have made of our national security isn't funny anymore.
A Mexican national infected with a highly contagious form of tuberculosis crossed the U.S. border 76 times and took multiple domestic flights in the last year. […] The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency was warned by health officials on April 16 that the frequent traveler was infected, but it took the Homeland Security officials more than six weeks to issue a May 31 alert to warn its own border inspectors, according to Homeland Security sources who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution. Homeland Security took one more week to tell its own Transportation Security Agency.
Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR) is a highly contagious illness and also resistant to the two most commonly used drugs to treat TB. […] [P]hysicians say the disease can be transmitted within minutes.
Officer Bret Glidewell was shot Sunday after pulling over a 1998 Chevrolet S-10 pickup around 5 p.m. for running a stop sign near 32nd Street and Sweetwater Avenue [in Phoenix].
Police said the driver stuck a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol out the window and fired one shot at Glidewell as he was walking up to the truck, hitting him right above the heart. Glidewell's vest stopped the bullet. […] He identified 35-year-old Jose Abel Cabrera-Somosa as the shooter based on a photograph. […]
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said Cabrera-Somosa is an illegal immigrant who claimed he is from El Salvador. Cabrera was caught in the United States in 2001 and he voluntarily returned to Mexico, police said. […]
Police records show he was cited for traffic violations in August of 2003. He received one criminal citation for failure to provide driver license or evidence of identity. He also received four civil citations. His fingerprints and a photo were taken for identification purposes. Cabrera-Somosa was cited and released, police said.
Officers said he was again cited in October 2003 for three civil traffic violations and released.
The message to the bumbling moonbats running the government should be plain: since we aren't safe from foreign threats, your jobs aren't safe either.

American Citizens are the hardest working people in the world, and this is the respect our government gives us. We ask for border security and an end to illegal immigration and they give us the middle finger. All I ask is, when are we going to give the government the middle finger?

For your interest: Interest in global warming is waning as evidenced from online search traffic, even with Gore's latest Nobel bribe... I mean, win.
And in the leftie Times no less.
