President Barack Obama ordered Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano to furlough 60,000 border agents and required Arizona law enforcement to release more than 500 convicted illegal aliens because of sequestration cuts. Napolitano also was ordered to purchase 2,717 tanks and 1.6 billion rounds of ammo — equipment under DHS discretion. Also spent, $50 million for the elite TSA government employees' new uniforms.
Because of sequestration constraints, Obama claims he can't spend money on vital border security protecting Americans' safety but can spend billions on tanks, ammo and uniforms. What's going on?
Maybe Rep. Darrell Issa's congressional panel needs to question Big Sis — under oath — about these presidential orders because the peasants out here in their homeland have never felt less secure or more afraid of their government.
Never before have Americans clung so tightly to their Bibles and guns.
