For some reason the cameras that are banned on the border were not banned from the Wynkoop Brewing Co. pizza and pool hall in Colorado where, in lieu of the middle finger, Barack Obama flipped a pool stick at America, banged back a few brewskis and yukked it up with Democratic governor John Hickenlooper.
Cameras being banned from liberal policy hubs most assuredly indicates that whatever is going on there, if truth be told and visuals matched with verbal accounts, the American people would be horrified. That’s probably the reason why cameras are banned from abortion clinics and sonograms are opposed by pro-abortionists.
Cameras or not, Barack Obama is one very busy man who, besides avoiding unflattering photo ops, also lacks the inclination to waste precious time pretending to be concerned while visiting the southern border to take stock of his Cloward Piven/immigration reform crisis.
Thus far, the states being directly invaded by hordes of illegals have nothing to say because Obama has all but wrestled control from the state level to the federal level with nary a peep from John ‘No Impeachment’ Boehner or the do-nothing Congress elected to represent the American people.
So while the rest of the country nervously anticipates a future where our children will be exposed to deadly Third World diseases or lured into murdering/torturing MS-13 gangs, the president responsible for putting every American’s life in danger has been busily fundraising in Colorado and Texas.
And why should Barack Obama worry? To cover the costs of things like “Monopoly…playing cards… beanbag tosses and other games for illegal immigrant children,” the president has done his part by upping the initial $2 billion he was supposed to ask Congress for to $4 billion.
As for the issue of housing the illegal children, that’s also being dealt with. Although Christian pastors are banned from immigration camps, according to a couple who called Rush Limbaugh, Catholic bishops who forgot how Obama has mistreated the Catholic Church, and who probably tend toward the liberation theology way of interpreting Scripture, are pitching in by encouraging parishioners in California to open their homes to lice-ridden urchins.
But again, no need for Obama to fret — medical personnel and staff have been threatened with jail for speaking out, and the transporting of illegals to parts known and unknown is being handled by the feds.
As for the homeless children, illegal families all over America are welcoming thousands of kids into their casas in hopes of matching them with two equally illegal parents due to follow close behind in the days ahead.
But most importantly, there is no need for Obama to stress because Border Patrol agents, who were also prevented from speaking about changing diapers and playing nursemaid to babies and toddlers, and who, as a result of close contact with highly contagious children have contracted swine flu, TB, scabies and more, are currently receiving government medical care on par with that provided our veterans via the Veterans Administration.
That’s why, with everything so well controlled, Barack Obama, the man the media likes to falsely portray as being concerned about the “humanitarian situation” he created, seems unperturbed, and even ebullient.
Obviously the president is completely satisfied with the course of events on the border, because what appears to be anarchy and disaster to some is a hard-won accomplishment for him.
So unconcerned is he that as pandemonium has ensued and protests have erupted at Ground Zero Invasion, up north in Denver, along with enjoying beer and billiards, a happy-go-lucky Barack turned his attention toward gorgeous weather conditions and outdoor lunches.
That’s right, speaking to handpicked guests in Cheesman Park, a cheery Mr. Obama, full of pizza and beer, talked of summertime outdoor dining, of all things.
Barack Obama, the man responsible for luring illegals over the border like ants swarming a half-eaten hot dog roll at a picnic, suggested to the crowd: “I think we should just stay here all afternoon and have a picnic. This is really nice around here. Wow. What a gorgeous day.”
Whether the president realized what he was saying or not, for those who have ears to hear, the comment evoked memories of a historic event that took place way back in 1861 in Manassas, Virginia, also in July, at a time when the nation was being torn asunder by a different type of turmoil.
One hundred fifty-three years after people, reporters, and government officials showed up at Bull Run to picnic and watch an encounter that they believed would be the first and last battle of what turned out to a long, protracted and bloody Civil War, Barack Obama addressed Mile High City supporters and actually proposed picnicking.
Putting pool, pizza, and beer aside, the question that remains is whether a seemingly nonchalant Barack Obama’s picnic reference was coincidental, a prophetic foretelling of what lies ahead for America, or a clever taunt hinting at the lengths he’s willing to take this fight if the amnesty battle he’s worked so hard to manipulate resolves itself other than the way he wants it to go.
However it all turns out, while Barack ‘Rack em-up’ Obama consciously or unconsciously makes cryptic references to Civil War events, the situation on the border does seem to be slowly heading toward a modern-day replay of the picnic at Bull Run.
