21st century sentinels desperate to change the narrative

In light of the number of commentaries which attempt to justify our president's use of executive order to defer indefinitely the deportation of illegals until our congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform law, or which seek to blame our congress for current law which could be argued is too broad, leaving it to bureaucrats to write or the other branches to interpret and enforce-or not enforce, one must consider the administrative policies which led to the massive influx of undocumented children and adults in the first place.

In December, 2013, Judson Berger writes in Judge claims DHS delivering smuggled children to illegal immigrant parents, according to U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen, "in more than one case before his court, immigration officials are arresting human traffickers smuggling children into the U.S. -- and then "delivering the minors to the custody of the parent illegally living in the United States." This is verified by "Chris Crane, president of the National ICE Council union."

In an article written by Michele Hickford in June 2014, Feds advertised for escort services for unaccompanied alien children in January , she brings the readers' attention to an opportunity posted on FedBizOpps.gov which reads, "help wanted" in which "the feds were looking for vendors to help escort unaccompanied alien children (UAC) in JANUARY of this year."

In two separate Breitbart.com articles written this past summer, Feds Dole Out Healthcare and Child Support Payments for Foreign Minors and Collect More Than $7,000 Per Month for 'Fostering' Adult Illegal Aliens, Kristin Tate writes about how illegals have been incentivized by the Obama administration to come to this country.  She explains that in advertisements looking for foster parents to house illegals, many of which are already adults, prospective parents will be paid thousands of dollars to house illegals who receive taxpayer subsidized legal counsel, food, education, health care, transportation, and an "allowance."

The idea that the numbers of illegals are so vast that we cannot enforce the law as it is written brings to mind The Cloward-Piven Strategy, as explained by Richard Poe and published in 2005 at DiscoverTheNetworks.org. In this article, Poe writes, "the Cloward-Piven Strategy seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse."

In an article published by The Washington Times, Obamacare offers firms $3,000 incentive to hire illegals over native-born workers Stephen Dinan alerts us to this important development.  "President Obama's temporary amnesty, which lasts three years, declares up to 5 million illegal immigrants to be lawfully in the country and eligible for work permits, but it still deems them ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on Obamacare's health exchanges," thus incentivizing employers to hire those who came here illegally.

I know it's hard to imagine that there might be nefarious forces at work, conspiring to bring down the United States of America, but think for a moment about the Cold War and the vast human and other resources it took for the Soviet Union to strategically place spies posing as average American families raising their children in DC and Virginia.  No one could have believed it if evidence wasn't available to prove such acts of war against our country.

There is no secret about Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, that Hillary Clinton herself wrote a term paper on his strategies to promote progressivism by fomenting revolution or that Cloward Pliven supporters were influenced by his tactics.  Our president himself was a former "community organizer" advocate/activist for the breakdown of the status quo.

Before legitimizing our president's actions, one must look at motive.  Let's not forget Michele Obama's famous words, "For the First Time in My Adult Lifetime, I'm Really Proud of My Country…because I think people are hungry for change" and that President Obama himself promised to fundamentally transform America. Van Jones, the president's former Green Jobs Czar said to affect change, there needed to be pressure which he described as, "top down, bottom up, inside out."  It is imperative that we not forget that it is the ideas and rule of law written in our founding documents which unites us as Americans.  At some point, citizens must stop disbelieving the sentinels who are trying to bring attention to information not covered by the mainstream media as conspiratorial and open their minds to the idea that perhaps all is not right with their world, after all.
