Only in the United States could the enumerated powers and responsibilities of the Executive Branch be ignored by the â€œpresidentâ€ while he simultaneously provides those same protections to foreign countries around the globe.
The latest instance of our federal hypocrisy is occurring now, in the standoff in Ukraine. Hussein Obamaâ€™s State Department has granted a contract for the delivery of 2,500 spools of Concertina wire to the government of Ukraine for the purpose of securing their border with Russia.
Of course, that is a tactic that only works outside of North America. On our continent, border fences are mysteriously ineffective. At least, that is what those who are supposed to be protecting our nation have repeatedly told us.
Fences still function just fine at prison facilities, warehouses and military installations. Thereâ€™s even a security fence for some strange reason around the White House. But they would never work to keep people from crossing our open border.
The concept of border fences is so â€œforeignâ€ to our federal government that whoever typed the notification even misspelled the word security. It was probably a subconscious thing, with them just unaccustomed to seeing that word in such close proximity to the word â€œborder.â€
The notice describes this as â€œurgently neededâ€ assistance to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine. Maybe theyâ€™ve got Russian children trying to break into their country. Those Ukrainians are just wasting Americaâ€™s money trying to secure their country if thatâ€™s the case. We all know there is no way to stop determined children. Once theyâ€™ve made their mind up to break into your country, there is no option but to build detention centers, find them homes and throw money at them.
If the Ukrainians are lucky, theyâ€™ll just have to guard against the Russian military. Fencing has a chance of working if they are only trying to keep out armed foreign soldiers.
