RUSH: "Illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners without valid identification, according to the National Border Patrol Council." You think you could do that? Let's try it this afternoon, Snerdley. Let's head over to PBI and try to get on an airplane without any ID. See what happens. This is an exclusive here from Breitbart News. The TSA is allowing illegals to fly without verifiable ID. This is the Border Patrol union, by the way, the National Border Patrol Council.
It's like the National Screeners union that Snerdley's a member of. You know, Moe Thacker is the union chief. Is that not a perfect union thug name? Moe Thacker has been the head of the United Screeners union since I started this program in New York in 1988. The Border Patrol has a union. It's called the National Border Patrol Council. "The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms."
The spokesman has a name here. His name is Hector Garza, and he is the Local 2455 spokesman. He says, "This is not the CBP [Customs and Border Protection] or another federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel. This just adds insult to injury. Not only are we releasing unknown illegal aliens onto American streets, but we are allowing them to travel commercially using paperwork that could easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer."
Lois Lerner could even do it. "The Notice to Appear form has no photo, anyone can make one and manipulate one. They do not have any security features, no watermark, nothing. They are simply printed on standard copy paper based on the information the illegal alien says is the truth." These are notices to appear before an immigration judge. And everybody knows they're not gonna show up and appear. They're gonna end up in the shadows.
This is just more monkey business by the Regime. "Oh, but they've all promised to show up. They've all promised to come back and appear. That's why we're letting them in the country. We give them the Notice to Appear form, and they swear that they'll come back."
But we're not tracking them. We don't know where they go. Well, I'm not sure about that. I wonder if there's a paper trail where all of these illegal aliens, not just children, by the way, they're being dispersed. They're not in these processing centers very long. They're being dispersed to, quote, unquote, families, sponsors. I read a story the other day that they're outraged in Michigan over the influx of some of these illegal alien kids. They are being flown all over the country, and apparently the Border Patrol union guy said they're allowed on planes without any valid ID.
Spokesman Garza, Hector Garza of the Local 2455, the National Border Patrol Council said, "We do not know who these people are, we often have to solely rely on who they say they are, where they say they came from, and the history they say they have. We know nothing about most of them, ICE releases them into the American public, and now they are boarding aircraft at will with a simple paper document that anyone can easily alter or reproduce themselves."
Even if the form they have is legit, it's still not a real ID. We still don't know who they are. So Breitbart wanted to see if this was real or just the rant of one local union spokesman, and they found out that Garza was validated by the national body of the National Border Patrol Council, the NBPC. And Breitbart Texas obtained an exclusive statement from the NBPC, and it's this.
"The National Border Patrol Council adamantly opposes the decision of DHS to release the illegal aliens who have been transported from the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector to other locations for processing. The lack of consequences has furthered this crisis and will only continue to do so. The fact that TSA is accepting the I-862 (Notice to Appear) as a form of identification and allowing illegal aliens to travel commercially shows just how little regard the federal government has for its own immigration laws."
So I'm gonna ask, since the subject keeps coming up, is this just this Obama bunch in the middle of a crisis not knowing what the hell to do? Is this something else? Is this the purposeful erasure of the border, if not erasure, is it the blurring of the border? Now, I've been thinking about this. I got this e-mail from my friend who thinks, "Rush, these people, they're in over their head and they don't know what to do. They're going from crisis to crisis, and they don't know what to do."
Now, he also says at the end of his e-mail that everything they're doing is on purpose, and by design, and I know that's contradictory. But let's take the first half of this. Okay, you have this bunch of extreme liberals who have never -- there's not a one of them, folks, in a prominent administration position who really has worked in the private sector. There isn't one. They are all think tank types or theoreticians, faculty lounge lizards, if you will.
They don't have any experience entrepreneurially. They don't have any experience running a business or making a payroll or any of that. They don't really have any experience dealing with the federal government from the private sector view of it. They're just theoreticians. In addition to that, they're arrogant and conceited. They think they're smarter than everybody else. They sit around and they look out over the country and they see what they don't like about it, what's unfair and unjust. They sit around and theorize how they could fix it all just with the power of their intelligence and personality if they ever got power.
Okay, so now they're in power. And everything they've tried, based on what they truly believe, let's give the benefit of the doubt here. They really believe taking money from the rich and passing it around is gonna grow an economy. They really believe that taking money from the rich and Big Business and spreading it around and redistributing wealth is gonna raise everybody's standard of living. Let's just say that that's what they believe. And they've been at it for five and a half years. Let's say they believe that government spending here and government spending there is how you grow an economy.
The stimulus, that's gonna create jobs. Roads and bridges are gonna be repaired, let's say they believe all this that they're saying. Well, they're obviously wrong, because none of what they believe has worked. None of what they have tried is worked. Okay, so five and a half years and they are in a state of shock. These are the best and brightest in their own minds. These are arrogant, condescending, conceited people who think everybody else is a bunch of idiots and they have all the answers.
They can right the wrongs of culture. They can reverse all the social injustice. They can make everything right again. They can make everybody equal. They can make everything fair. And they've been at it for five and a half years, and what have they got to show for it? Zilch, zero, nada. So now what do they do? Well, even giving them this benefit of the doubt, we are in big trouble 'cause they don't know what to do. Everything they believe does not work. By definition. By experience. Five and a half years of them doing what they believe obviously doesn't work.
Now, in their minds they haven't yet admitted it fails. They're still flummoxed why it hasn't worked yet and so now they're saying to themselves what the apologists for the Soviet Union said. "Well, you know, they just didn't have enough time and they ran out of money, but you put the right people in charge and it would have worked." That's what they've said about every failed socialist effort in the world.
They believe that they are finally the right people. "We're the ones we've been waiting for," whatever, and they've got unlimited money now because they're in charge of the Treasury. They are spending it like it's never been spent before, and it isn't fixing anything. It's continuing to break everything. What do they do? They don't know what to do. Everything they believe in is blowing up in their face. They automatically reject everything in the past that has worked, such as Reaganism, because it's inherently unfair, it's unjust, it benefits the rich, and there isn't any trickle-down. So they automatically reject what works because they politically arrogantly oppose it. So what do they do?
I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt for you low-information voters who also give them the benefit of the doubt and think their intentions are honorable. No matter what we're still where we are. And they're either doing it on purpose or it's happened 'cause they don't know what they're doing. In either case, they don't know what to do next. Now, giving them the benefit of the doubt, what is the humanitarian thing going on here with immigration? You have to understand that the left's blurring of the borders and happily accepting the underclass of the world crossing the border, there's only a lot of things that could explain this.
A, they think it's the United States' fault that these people are poor. And don't doubt that. Remember, we are in many ways in their minds the great Satan. World's superpower, we're not wealthy because of anything we've done. We're wealthy 'cause we've stolen. We're wealthy because we took what was theirs and we used it and we grew powerful and wealthy and we didn't share it back. So these people coming in, it's really their stuff. We owe it to them. That's being charitable. Another way of being charitable is that -- well, no, not being charitable -- is that they realize that they're animals of electoral politics and they need more and more people like this registered as Democrats to keep them in power, so that they can continue on their path of social justice.
I don't care how you define their motives or their actions in explaining where we are. The one hard, cold reality is they do not know how to fix this. Even if they wanted to fix this, they do not know how. They have never attempted. All they've done is sat around amongst themselves and bitched and moaned about everything else and theorized how smarter they are than everybody else, and if they ever got the chance to govern, that they would show everybody how it's done. Well, they've been doing it five and a half years, and it's more broken than it's ever been.
They have no real-world experience at all. They're all academicians, theoreticians, pointy head, egghead think tank types. Their hands have never gotten dirty. They don't know what to do and they reject everything that works because it's politically unacceptable. Reaganism, free market capitalism. Ew, God, capitalism, ew. It's like showing Dracula the cross. You can't do that. It's unfair. People died, people suffered. There's suffering and there's harm and there's no gay marriage in capitalism, blah, blah. So they're not gonna do what works. They've already rejected that.
They're in the middle of a slow realization that they are bombing out. And since they've never, ever had any experience, and since what they profoundly believe to be true has never worked anywhere, i.e., socialism, communism, liberalism, it's never worked, woe is all of us, 'cause what do they do? It's potentially very dangerous now. What will they do? Because now it's total CYA. Now it's total protect Obama and the cause time. And whatever happens, make sure it ain't Obama's fault, make sure that liberalism doesn't get blamed, make sure that socialism doesn't get blamed. Whatever happens, it can't result in us getting blamed for it.
And the Republican Party is not out there publicly offering alternatives because they're afraid to. So we're kind of stuck here, 'cause the people in charge are clueless, don't know what to do, no experience with anything that works.
