Border Protection System Coming Down
Aerostats designed to detect low flying aircraft
TexasConservativeRepublicans.com -- January 19   
Air Force's Air Defense Radar Systems along U.S./Mexico Border will SHUTDOWN on March 15th, 2013
    On January 17th, 2013, Exelis Systems Corporation sent out an e-mail to all of its employees informing them that on March 15th, 2013 all TARS Air Defense Mission Operations will permanently cease. These TARS Air Defense sites were under the control of the United States Air Force. On January 15th, 2013, the Air Force informed Exelis (the defense contractor running the TARS sites) that the TARS sites will be shut down. Exelis tried to then negotiate with the Department of Homeland Security to see if they would take over the vital project, but it seems as though those negotiations have failed.
    What does this mean?
    This means the Southern Border of the United States of America will be more vulnerable to attack from low flying aircraft, low altitude missiles, and other infiltrations such as smuggling.
   Speaking on the condition of anonymity, one Exelis employee had this to say about the announced closure of the TARS sites:
    "Not only will this closure mean hundreds of people will be out of jobs, but it also means our borders will not be safe, especially along the remote U.S. Mexico Border like in Texas. These defense radars detect low flying aircraft infiltrating our borders. Without these defense radars, low flying aircraft will go undetected. It will be open season for any drug/gun/slave smugglers, terrorists flying in with nukes low altitude missiles, or even a full scale low elevation invasion/attack against America."
Red DotAmerican Patrol Report Comment
    American Border Patrol has tested a system that can detect low flying light aircraft. Maybe the Air Force should use it.

Obama regime eases path for 'Dreamers' to get behind the wheel   
The Obama administration said Friday that illegal [aliens] who qualify for its new non-deportation policy are now "considered to be lawfully present" in the U.S. --- a legal status that could help them to get driver's licenses. -- Known as "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals," or DACA, the new policy grants a tentative status to most illegal [aliens] who were brought to the U.S. before age 16 and who are 30 or younger...

The institutionalization of tyranny   
Republicans and conservative Americans are still fighting Big Government in its welfare state form. Apparently, they have never heard of the militarized police state form of Big Government, or, if they have, they are comfortable with it and have no objection. -- Republicans, including those in the House and Senate, are content for big government to initiate wars without a declaration of war or even Congress' assent...

His death is closely tied to the government's botched Fast and Furious...

Glenn Spencer -- American Border Patrol     
On January 17, I wrote the following: "That is, SBI has been able to count 16,000 times the US Border Patrol took action involving human and drug smuggling. A rough guess puts the number of aliens involved at about 150,000 --- and they may not detect another 150,000 --- meaning about 200,000 people entered the US illegally using the "Amnesty Trail." It is true that secureborderintel.org agreed with the estimate of 16,000 Border Patrol actions, but the estimate of how many aliens were involved were mine alone.

New bill would give invaders driver's licenses in California   
Assembly Member Luis Alejo (D-Salinas) has introduced AB 60, which would provide California driver's licenses to illegal aliens. The author is trying to sell the idea that the licenses would be for those who pay taxes since it allows the DMV to accept the federal individual taxpayer identification number instead of a social security number.

Tom Tancredo -- WND.com     
Goodbye, immigration --- hello, global citizenship   
We won't see it in any headline, but immigration is dead. -- You can't have immigration without immigrants, and we no longer have immigrants, we have only migrants. Everyone is a migrant. We all migrate at some time, from town to town, state to state, region to region and country to country. It's all the same. Really, when you think about it, we're all just citizens of the world, and borders are artificial and illusory....
