Obama Runs Away from the War on Terrorism – Tea Party Nation

Obama Runs Away from the War on Terrorism – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

“You may not be interested in war, but war may be interested in you.” — Leon Trotsky

If you think about the presidents who we remember and honor the most, it is those who faced war and rallied the nation to victory. Our first president, George Washington, sustained the Revolutionary War for eight long years against daunting odds, including a Continental Congress that often provided little support for the men under his command that were fighting to create a new, free nation.

Washington’s reputation in war and peace is the reason that the Constitution designates the President as Commander-in-Chief. He was so highly regarded for his conduct of the Revolution that the Founders concluded that future presidents had to be free to wage war, but only after Congress declared that a state of war existed.

America, however, has not formally passed a declaration of war since WWII and then because it had been declared against us first. Since then wars have often been fought under the sanction given by the United Nations as was the case in the Korean conflict and the two Gulf wars, an erosion of our national sovereignty.

Lincoln is revered for having preserved the Union during the bloodiest conflict this nation ever fought. Franklin D. Roosevelt earned his place in our history for mobilizing the nation prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor, assisting Great Britain prior to entering the World War II, and then pursuing an aggressive policy to defeat the Axis nations.

Quite a few of our presidents gained fame in various conflicts, from Washington to Grant to Eisenhower. Other presidents presided over wars both long and short.

In a speech on May 23, given ironically at the National Defense University, President Obama did his best to run away from war. His opposition to the war in Iraq, his decision to withdraw from Afghanistan, and his efforts to close Guantanamo will likely be seen in the same way as the Clinton policies of the 1990s when Osama bin Laden declared war on the United States on behalf of al Qaeda and subsequently attacked the World Trade Towers twice, in 1993 and on September 11, 2001. Weakness always encourages aggression.

In an application of magical thinking, at the height of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan the entire U.S. military was instructed not to use the term “global war on terrorism”, replacing it instead with “overseas contingency.” The Obama administration has refused to identify the May 22nd murder of a British soldier on the streets of London by an Islamist as terrorism.

Obama spent his first term and now his second insisting that al Qaeda has been defeated despite ample evidence that it has not. He has never ceased to downplay any event that suggests we and the rest of the world are not engaged in a war with radical Islam.

The Benghazi scandal arose out of an effort to claim and cover-up that the attack was “spontaneous” and the result of an anti-Islam video despite the fact that it occurred on September 11, 2012. Earlier, an attack on soldiers based at Fort Hood was declared “workplace violence.” The bombing in Boston was glossed over as a criminal act, not a terrorist act of war.

The absurdity and the danger of not describing the many instances of the Islamic jihad is a failure of major proportions and not being willing to take preemptive action against its perpetrators suggests it will grow, not diminish, and not cease to threaten the homeland and the world.

In a scathing May 24 analysis of his speech, “President Obama is Tired of Fighting Terrorism”, the Heritage Foundation said that “even as new fronts in the war on terrorism sprang up, the Administration continued to argue that it was winning” despite the Benghazi attack, despite the Boston bombing, despite the attacks in Afghanistan. Time and again Obama has said that the assassination of Osama bin Laden marked the end of al Qaeda and that the isolated drone attacks have reduced its ability to wage jihad. It has not, but Obama proposed scaling back the use of drones.

“The war of ideas,” said Heritage, “was completely banned from the Obama lexicon. Islamist terrorism became ‘violent extremism.’ Terrorism became ‘senseless violence.’ In 2011, however, Obama shifted course dramatically.”

“More than dumping the war of words, the White House signed off on a new counterterrorism strategy that amounted to running away from Iraq and Afghanistan as quickly as possible and limiting the offensive campaign to whacking top-level al Qaeda with drone strikes”, noting that “The new strategy was bound to fail, fighting the last war while al Qaeda evolved into a global insurgency that has spread from Pakistan to Nigeria.”

The Heritage analysis concluded that Obama “is sick of fighting. Unfortunately, America’s enemies are not.”

The buildup of the paramilitary strength of the Department of Homeland Security and its identification of patriots, veterans, and others critical of the Administration has led many Americans to believe it now exists less to protect Americans than to institute plans to impose a dictatorship.

Obama’s fear of attacks at home and conflicts abroad was reflected in his speech. “Unless we discipline our thinking, our definitions, our actions, we may be drawn into more wars we don’t need to fight, or continue to grant presidents unbound powers more suited for traditional armed conflicts between nation states.”

His Administration has already “defined” Islamic attacks to the point of not calling them Islamic attacks. His concern and reluctance to use the powers of the presidency to protect the nation ignores the new nature of war with a stateless entity called al Qaeda. Indeed, he wanted his war powers scaled back!

In his speech, Obama said “This war, like all wars, must end. That’s what history advises. That’s what our democracy demands.”

The Islamic jihad began in the seventh century and has not ended since then. Our democracy and the future of Western civilization depends on conducting a war to end the current aspects of it until today’s Muslims conclude that jihad as a religious duty is too painful to pursue. That’s how this war will end.

CNN Anchor: It Doesn’t Matter That Gun Violence is Down – Katie Pavlich

CNN Anchor: It Doesn’t Matter That Gun Violence is Down – Katie Pavlich.

afreepeopleIf you weren’t quite sure what the “unbiased” opinion about gun control from so-called objective journalists was, you’ll know now. This morning on CNN, anchor Don Lemon said it doesn’t matter that gun crime has been consistently going down since the 1990s as gun control has decreased. FBI crime statistics prove this fact year after year. 

It doesn’t matter if gun violence is down. 20 children are dead here and 6 adults are dead, and the mother of a person who was not mentally — who is mentally challenged in some way is dead. so to say that gun violence is down — we need to talk about mental health, yes. mental health is a secondary issue. We need to get guns and bullets and automatic weapons off the streets. They should only be available to police officers and to hunt al Qaeda and the Taliban and not hunt children.

Lemon is correct, 20 children are dead and their parents have been living a nightmare since they were killed last week, however, the way to react to the situation is not by turning sane gun owners, including semi-automatic gun owners, into criminals. There are about 60 million gun owners in the United States, many of them own semi-automatic handguns and rifles and have zero interest in hunting children as Lemon suggested. Also, automatic weapons are already off the streets.

upyoursAfter the Giffords shooting, a Pew poll showed 58 percent of Americans said the horrific incident was carried out by a troubled indiviual. This case is no different.

In the wake of the Tucson shooting in January 2011, there was no significant change in public views on the issue of gun control and gun rights.

Currently, 49% of Americans say it is more important to protect the right of Americans to own guns, while 46% say it is more important to control gun ownership. In September 2010, 50% prioritized gun control, 46% gun rights. In this regard, there is no sign that the longer trend toward an emphasis on gun owners’ rights has abated.

Perhaps one reason that attitudes remained stable was how few saw the events in Tucson as a sign of broader social problems. Most (58%) Americans say things like this are just the isolated acts of troubled individuals. Only about half as many (31%) saw the shooting in Tucson as a reflection of broader problems in American society.

1in2Once again we’re seeing how out of touch the media is with the rest of America and not surprisingly, they’re wearing their agenda right on their sleeve.

Scandal – Tea Party Nation

Scandal – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

This is now growing to be the biggest scandal in American Presidential history.   If the mainstream media were objective instead of part of the propaganda arm of the Obama Regime, this story would be headline material.

 You may know what the story is, but there are shocking details you may not know.  What must we do about this scandal?

 The scandal is the attack on our American consulate in Benghazi.  This scandal has gone from bad to worse.  Usually it is the cover up that is worse than the scandal.  Remember, it was the cover-up, not the break in at the Watergate that brought down Richard Nixon.

 For two weeks, the Obama Regime lied to us about the attack, claiming that this was not an organized terrorist attack but a response to an anti-Muslim film.  Every member of the Regime was dutifully trotted out to not only lie to the American people but to make a full frontal assault on the First Amendment.

 Then we find out that Hillary Clinton and others in the State Department had requested more security for the Benghazi site and Obama denied that request.

 The media reporting on the attack on the compound makes it sound like the Compound was quickly over run.  Former Navy Seals Glenn Doherty and Tyrone Woods were part of a unit that was near by.  They repeatedly asked for assistance and fought for seven hours before being killed.

 Part of the compound was a CIA operation to help track down weapons missing since the end of the Qaddafi regime.  The existence of this CIA operation and its headquarters was apparently an open secret in Libya.

 As the CIA operators called for help, a CIA paramilitary team was a mile away and was told repeatedly to stand down.  Special operations forces, including C-130 Specter gunships were an hour away.

 They were not sent.   Reports are now coming out that there was a drone over Benghazi at the time sending back real time images to the White House.

 Now even more reports are coming out that the slain Ambassador Chris Stevens may have been up to his eyeballs recruiting jihadists for Syria.  Before his death, a freighter from Libya, with a Captain from Benghazi docked in Turkey carrying 400 tons for weapons for the rebels fighting in Syria.  These included sophisticated surface to air missiles.  These surface to air missiles are shoulder fired, meaning they are very portable and only need one or two people to fire them.  This is an arms smuggling scandal that could make the former Iran-Contra scandal look insignificant. 

According to Aaron Klein at WND, the Consulate itself was not a consulate but an operations hub that served to coordinate aid for rebel led insurgencies through out the Middle East.

 The weapons that Chris Stevens and the American government were helping to smuggle to Syria, with the help of the Islamist government in Ankara, were going to not to the secular moderates, but to Al-Qaeda type terrorists. 

 Republicans have a habit of coming into power and deciding they are simply going to ignore scandals from the previous Democrat administration. 

 This cannot happen this time.

 Mitt Romney’s first priority when he is sworn in must be the economy.   That is good.  But he needs to find a really tough Attorney General and tell him to launch an investigation, get to the bottom of what happened and present the matter to a Federal Grand Jury and start getting indictments and convictions.

 When an American President leaves Americans to die the way Obama did, it is criminal.  When American forces that could easily help are told repeatedly to stand down, and other Americans who are calling for help are killed, it is murder.   When American officials are funneling weapons to Al-Qaeda type terrorists, weapons that one-day might be used against us, that is not just wrong.  It is illegal. 

 Republicans far too often treat Democrats as “Members of the club.”  That club being the political class that runs Washington.  They believe there are certain courtesies you give to members of the club, including covering for them.  Remember what the Clinton administration people did to the White House when George W. Bush was sworn in?  What did Bush do?  He simply ignored it.

 Remember what happened to Bill Clinton and the independent investigation into his conduct?  The day before he left office, it ended with a joke.   He paid a $25,000 fine to resolve the issues related to the Monica Lewinsky scandal and agreed to be disbarred in Arkansas.    On the last day in office, he pardoned Marc Rich, a fugitive financier.  Many have argued that this was done in exchange for various contributions.  That might have been bribery but the Republicans would not investigate. 

 The American people are tired of business as usual.  The Benghazi scandal is the biggest scandal ever to reach a President.  There have been other scandals but no one died in those scandals.

 If Mitt Romney’s administration will not investigate and prosecute this because it is the right thing to do, then they should do it out of a sense of self-defense.

 Obama’s “Arab Spring” which has toppled regimes all over the Middle East, has opened the door for terrorists to acquire not only surface to air missiles but also possibly chemical WMD’s.  Thousands of these shoulder fired surface to air missiles that were in Libya are now missing. 

 It is not a question of if, but only when some of those weapons will be used against America. 

 If the Romney administration does not aggressively investigate and prosecute those responsibly early, the Democrats will show them no such mercy.

Benghazi: The truth – Tea Party Nation

Benghazi: The truth – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Republicans held Congressional hearings yesterday on the disaster at the Benghazi Consulate that killed four Americans.  If the Republicans did not control Congress, these hearings would never have happened.

 These hearings exposed the shocking truth, not the propaganda the Obama Regime wanted us to believe.  What is the truth about Benghazi?

 The truth is the Obama Regime lied.  The truth is Benghazi was the result of Obama policies in the Middle East.  The truth is the Obama Regime, instead of acting like America is a superpower, tried instead to appease savages. 

 The truth is the Obama Regime knew within hours this was a terrorist attack.  Even as they deliberately lied to the American people, they knew what was really behind the attack.  They blamed the attack on the actions of a filmmaker and decried the freedom that makes America great. 

 At the time they knew they were sitting on a time bomb.  The truth is the boots on the ground warned the political appointees of the Obama Regime that help was needed.  They told Washington more security was needed.  They protested the withdrawal of security and support personnel.   

 One former regional security officer in Libya, Eric Nordstrom compared the people in Washington to the Taliban, saying they were a greater enemy because they would not give the people in Libya the support they needed. 

 Nordstrom added it was abundantly clear that the Embassy in Libya would not get the security it needed until after an attack.

 That is exactly what happened.

 Four Americans died.  A United States Ambassador was raped and murdered. 

 Another State Department employee said the attack on September 11th on the compound, was “instantly recognizable” as a terrorist attack. 

 The story that is getting almost no traction out of this whole debacle was raised yesterday by, of all people, Dennis Kucinich

 He asked how many shoulder-fired surface to air missiles were missing since Obama got the bright idea that we should help overthrow Qaddafi.  “10,000 to 20,000” was the answer.

 The one issue that no one else is talking about is that the two former Navy Seals who were killed in the attack were not there to protect the consulate.  They were in Libya looking for weapons that were missing since the fall of Qaddafi.

 10,000 to 20,000 missing surface to air missiles is not only alarming, it is a disaster.  The number is given as a range because no one knows for sure.  Missing means they cannot be located.  Some may have been destroyed.  Others may still be in warehouses.  But given that Al-Qaeda and other Islamist militias looted Qaddafi’s armories, it is almost a certainty that some of those missiles are now in the hands of terrorists.

 In criminal law, lawyers are trained to look for motive.  Motive goes a long way to explaining why people engage in certain actions. 

 What was the motive for attacking the Benghazi consulate?  Granted it was a target of opportunity, since it was poorly guarded.    But what was the motive?  Did the terrorists know that the Ambassador was there?  Was he the target or could the purpose of that attack have been to disrupt American efforts to account for and recover those missiles?

 Can you imagine the effect if only ten of those missiles were smuggled into America and used against commercial airliners?  The results would be devastating.   It would worse than 9/11.

 Could this be the motive for the Obama Regime to lie?

 If this was a terrorist attack, sooner or later someone needs to ask the question, why this target?

 If the Regime were to announce that 10,000 to 20,000 shoulder fired surface to air missiles were lost because Obama decided that Qaddafi should be overthrown, the blame would fall on Obama.    What would happen if those missiles were used against Western airliners?  That too would be blamed on Obama.

 As with everything else in the Obama Regime, politics trumps all.

 The only questions that remain now are how many of those missiles do terrorist groups have and when will they use them?  Oh there is one other question.

 How many Americans will die because of Barack Obama and his policies of idiocy?

Ignoring Islamo-Fascism at our Peril – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

In early November 2009 Americans were shocked to learn that an Army psychiatrist, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, had shot and killed twelve soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, and wounded thirty-one others. Because of the unrelenting political correctness prevailing in the Army and other services, all the signs that Hasan was a ticking time bomb were ignored.

Hasan was known to be a Muslim, had exhibited signs of a growing fanaticism, occasionally showed up in the post exchange dressed in Arab garb, and as it turned out later, was being mentored by Yemen’s al Qaeda leader, Anwar al-Awlaki , an American citizen who was later killed by a drone strike. As Hasan stood before the soldiers, firing at them, he yelled “Allah Akbar.”

This and other attacks, planned, failed, and thwarted occurred before and since 9/11; an attack that stunned Americans, all contribute to the worldwide terrorism intended to bring about the domination of Islam. Not only has the memory faded, but in 2009 the Obama administration did away with the earlier description of “a war on terrorism”, it ordered the Pentagon to replace it with “overseas contingency operations.”

The administration’s magical thinking about the Islamo-fascist threat makes one wonder why it has a Department of Homeland Security.

When it became known that the New York City Police Department was training its force to be especially watchful for any signs of terrorist attacks and was paying close attention to the mosques in the city and across the river in New Jersey, there was an outcry that totally ignored the threat. Initially they were rebuked by the Governor of New Jersey, a state where the 1993 attack on the Twin Towers was planned. One of the conspirators arrested lived in my hometown!

A report by the NYPD notes that Newark police officers worked closely “at all times” with their New York City counterparts. Much of the criticism of the NYPD’s program has been due to its success!

In a new book by Peter Feaman, “The Next Nightmare: How Political Correctness Will Destroy America” ($14.99, Dunham Books, softcover), a trial lawyer with thirty years’ experience, warns against the way Americans are leaving themselves vulnerable to future attacks. “Intolerance of Christianity and Judaism, and violence against infidels, is preached weekly in mosques across the United States.”

A great deal of the problem is that Americans believe that Islam is a “religion.” Historically, it has been a cult of conquest that merges its belief system with a political agenda in which Sharia law is intended to be imposed throughout the world. Its early, swift spread was based on terror and warfare.

No other “religion” preaches death to believers of other faiths. No other “religion” demands that apostates who convert be sentenced to death. No other “religion” resorts to intimidation on the scale of Islam. It is fascism masquerading as religion.

“At the end of World War II,” notes Feaman, “there were about fifty mosques located in the United States. Today there are more than 1,300—and the number grows monthly.” Much of the funding comes from Saudi Arabia for Sunni mosques and Iran for Shiite mosques.

There are moderate Muslims seeking reform within Islam and there are Muslims who are loyal Americans. They are, however, vastly outnumbered by those with very bad intentions.

The NYPD program aimed at monitoring mosques is critical to thwart future attacks. “The six men of the al Qaeda sleeper cell in Lackawanna, New York—who were arrested by the FBI in 2001 for attending an al Qaeda terrorist training camp in Afghanistan—all belonged to the same Lackawanna mosque.”

“In Florida’s Dade and Broward Counties, an imam and his two sons were arrested on May 14, 2011, charged with funneling money to the Pakistani Taliban…”

“A Sunni mosque in suburban Beaverton, Oregon was the meeting ground for six members indicted by federal authorities in 2002 for conspiring to provide aid to the Taliban and al Qaeda terrorists.”

The Al-Farooq mosque in Brooklyn has been in the public spotlight for more than ten years as a hotbed of Islamic radicalism, sedition, and treason. The imam there, Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman, was convicted in 1995 of conspiracy to bomb New York City landmarks.”

Islamo-fascism is spreading everywhere, but especially in Europe where many acts of terrorism have occurred. By 2050, Muslims will be in control of most European nations by sheer weight of numbers. The “Arab spring” is rapidly becoming the means by which Islamists are gaining control throughout those nations that overthrew their mostly secular dictators.

If we don’t want a repeat of the Fort Hood murders—labeled “workplace violence” by the Obama administration—if we don’t want another Times Square car bomb that mercifully was disarmed, if we want to be protected against future attacks, we must rid ourselves of the political correctness that will get us killed.

The notion that the New York City Police Department would come under fire for acting preemptively to prevent further attacks in the city is beyond absurd. It is suicidal.

The insanity of the Obama Dictatorship. – Tea Party Nation

The insanity of the Obama Dictatorship. – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips on December 15, 2011

The Congress has now passed and the Obama regime is now not going to veto a new Defense Authorization bill that gives the military the right to detain Americans indefinitely, without trial. 

 From CBS News:

 The White House is signing off on a controversial new law that would authorize the U.S. military to arrest and indefinitely detain alleged al Qaeda members or other terrorist operatives captured on American soil.

 As the bill neared final passage in the House of Representatives and the Senate on Wednesday, the Obama administration announced it would support passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which contains slightly watered-down provisions giving the military a front line role in domestic terrorism cases.

 The administration abandoned its long-held veto threat due to changes in the final version of the bill, namely that in its view, the military custody mandate has been “softened.” The bill now gives the President the immediate power to issue a waiver of the military custody requirement, instead of the Defense Secretary, and gives the President discretion in implementing these new provisions.

 “We have concluded that the language does not challenge or constrain the President’s ability to collect intelligence, incapacitate dangerous terrorists, and protect the American people, and the President’s senior advisors will not recommend a veto,” the White House statement said.

 The detainee provisions are just one part of the annual NDAA authorizing $662 billion in federal defense spending next year.

 While the bill never expanded the authority to detain American citizens indefinitely without charges, proponents said the legislation would codify court decisions finding the President does have the authority to declare “enemy combatants,” as commander-in-chief and under the post-9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force against al Qaeda and its allies. The administration, which has pledged not to use this power, believes the bill leaves this legal issue unresolved.

 Oh gee, Obama says he is not going to use the power.  I feel so much better.  That is sarcasm, just in case anyone missed it.

 The big discussion here is can this bill be used to indefinitely detain Americans arrested on American soil. 

 The Sixth Amendment to the Constitution provides for a “fast, speedy and public trial by jury.” 

 In addition, the right to a Writ of Habeas Corpus still exists.  If our courts do not declare this bill unconstitutional as soon as it is used against Americans, we have a bigger problem than this bill.  We have lost our Constitution. 

 If a terrorist is captured and he is not an American, who cares?  Lock him up forever.  If the terrorist is an American, they do get their Constitutional rights.  American citizenship means something.

 I am not shocked Obama would sign a law that violates the rights of American citizens in this way.  I am appalled that a Republican House of Representatives would pass such a bill.

 One thing is certain, we need a new President in 2013 and a new Congress and one of their first orders of business should be to rewrite this law so it is clear it does not apply to American citizens.

The law of unintended consequences. – Tea Party Nation.

Does anyone in the Obama regime actually think things through?

 Anyone with three functioning brain cells could have figured a few things out.  One of which is there would be absolute chaos if Kaddafi were over thrown in Libya and because like a lot of dictators, Kaddafi liked to buy some really expensive weapons, some of them would fall into the hands of some not very nice people.

 From ABC News:

 Defeated in battle, Moammar Kaddafi’s army left behind armories brimming with weapons, and the rebels have helped themselves. It’s not just guns that have been plundered. Almost every outpost captured by opposition forces has yielded weapons, everything from AK-47 assault rifles to grenades to surface-to-air missiles (SAMs). And the rebels tell ABC News that they don’t have enough resources to safeguard them all — which means they may wind up in the hands of people who have other agendas than defeating Kaddafi.

On Thursday we visited an army base in Tripoli, and found the grounds littered with SAMs. Some were stored in concrete bunkers, others lay in open shipping containers, there for the taking. The base looked like it had been battered by NATO airstrikes, but nearly all the missiles we found remained undamaged, their warheads intact. The front gate of the base was wide open, and we were able to drive in without being stopped.

According to Peter Bouckaert, emergencies director at Human Rights Watch, the weapons the looters want most, and take first, are the SAMs.

HRW estimates there are 20,000 surface-to-air missiles in Libya, and many of those are now missing. Some are recent Russian-made SAMs, capable of shooting down aircraft flying as high as 11,000 feet.

 “They have no military use in this war,” said Bouckaert. “Kaddafi is not flying any airplanes, he’s not flying any helicopters. So why are people looting these very powerful and dangerous missiles?

Oh I don’t know, could I possibly guess a reason?

Islamic terrorists are known to be in leadership positions among the Libyan rebels.  What could they possibly want to do?  Perhaps share them with Al-Qaeda and let Al-Qaeda use them against passenger airliners?

Given our porous southern border, along with the tons of marijuana and cocaine that are smuggled into the Southwest, how hard would it be to smuggle some of those SAM’s into Arizona?

How hard would it be to get those weapons near a major airport?  A plane landing or taking off would have no chance.  It probably would not know about the missile until it exploded, killing all on board. 

While no conservative wanted America involved in this war that we have no interest in, can someone please tell me why the Obama regime did not send the military in to destroy the Libyan arsenals?    Certainly Libyan defectors could have told us where the munitions were.  The looters had no trouble finding them.

If a Libyan missile in the future shoots down an American airliner, this will be another tragedy that belongs right at the feet of Barack Obama.

Illegal aliens kill more Americans – Tea Party Nation

Illegal aliens kill more Americans – Tea Party Nation.

Illegal aliens continue to kill more Americans than Al Qaeda does in Afghanistan.

 This week two families are mourning the killing of their children by illegal aliens.

 First, a family in Massachusetts is mourning the death of their son, a recent college graduate, at the hands of an illegal alien.

 From Fox News:

 An illegal immigrant who allegedly killed a 23-year-old Massachusetts man in a hit-and-run accident Saturday is being held on $100,000 cash bail, the Milford Daily News reports.

Nicolas D. Guaman, 34, of Milford, Mass., was arrested Saturday after his vehicle struck Matthew J. Denice, who was on a motorcycle, according to police. Guaman’s pickup truck had allegedly dragged Denice’s body a quarter-mile, the newspaper reports.

Judge Robert Calagione entered a not guilty plea on behalf of Guaman in Milford District Court on Tuesday.

Michael Maloney, Denice’s stepfather, is reportedly calling the accident a “murder.” He described Denice, who had just graduated from Framingham State University with a computer degree, as a “great all-American kid,” according to the newspaper.

Police in Milford confirmed that Guaman was in the country illegally, and Denice’s family has called for him to receive a lengthy sentence in the U.S., rather than simply being deported.

 Perhaps the most heartbreaking story came earlier this week, when a four year old child was killed by an illegal alien. 

 Again, from August 23, on Fox News:

 Charges have been filed against an unlicensed driver and suspected illegal immigrant who allegedly killed a 4-year-old boy in a hit-and-run accident, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The newspaper reports that prosecutors in Sonoma County charged 22-year-old Marcos Lopez Garcia with felony hit-and-run, two misdemeanors and vehicular manslaughter, among other charges, in the Thursday death of Christopher “Buddy” Rowe of Santa Rosa.

Garcia had two prior arrests for driving without a license, according to the newspaper.

Christopher was reportedly killed on his way to soccer practice while crossing the street with his mother and two sisters, including the boy’s twin. 

 Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/08/23/suspected-illegal-immigrant-fa…

 Every day, every week, illegal aliens are in this country, committing crimes and the American people are the victims. 

 Of course, neither political party is committed to protecting American citizens.  They are more interested in pandering to a voting block, so they hope they can get reelected.

 While they pander, more Americans die.
