Obama Creates New "Border Czar" Position, Cartel Leaders Laugh in Unison

Posted in:
In case America's fixation with "czars" hadn't already become enough of a national embarrassment:

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A former Justice Department official who led a 1990s crackdown on illegal border crossings was named to the new U.S. post of "border czar" Wednesday to oversee efforts to end drug-cartel violence along the U.S.-Mexico border and to slow the tide of illegal immigration.

The Obama administration has promised to target border violence and work with Mexican authorities to curb drug and arms trafficking. Hundreds of federal agents, along with high-tech surveillance gear and drug-sniffing dogs, are being deployed to the Southwest.

Sounds like fun. And when it fails spectacularly, what then? Perhaps we'll appoint a Czar Czar to coordinate the efforts of our various Czars and make sure their collaborations are fruitful. I guarantee you there are a disturbingly high number of people working in our government who would not think that is stupid.

Would you watch a reality show where the Czars all live in a house together and perform feats of prowess in exchange for prizes while Joe Rogan makes fun of them? What would that show be called?

reality show

I'm not sure what that show would be called, but there could be a whole list of hit reality shows

So you wanna be a RockCzar

what about...

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warning local law enforcement about right-wing extremist groups growing in this country. Certainly not the state-sanctioned paramilitary groups busting down doors in minority communities for a bag of pot!

So the drug czar has failed

and they need to cover his ass with a new position.

This might reflect better on the drug czar's failure had they changed the drug czar to drug emperor and made the new position border czar.

Either way both positions are an admission that normal democratic institutions such as department secretaries and administrators cannot co-exist with authoritarian imposed black markets. So the politicians, who have no confidence in democratic regulatory institutions, have to create more fantasy positions outside the purview of democratic institutions.

In 1972 the Dixie-crats and Nixon created the DEA to protect our borders and free us of the scourge of drugs.

Fifteen years later the 'just say no' Reaganites along with Joe Biden and the Democrats in congress created the drug czar to counter the crack epidemic and the massive explosion of drug use since Nixon created the DEA.

Twenty-two years later the Democrats control congress, Joe Biden is VP and we are creating yet another czar position because the drug czar has proven to be totally ineffectual at controlling drugs coming into America.

New reality Show!!

How about Czarsame Street, because these puppets are a real laugh riot. By the way I just saw an interview on TV were Mexican President Felipe Calderon said he would win the War on drugs waging in Mexico. How amazingly naive is this ignorant man elected to such a high post in Mexico. J. Velasco Brownsville TX

Cheapest areas to buy pot are in border towns

In McAllen and Laredo, TX, commercial grade marijuana sells for $150 a pound. It's so plentiful.

IT IS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY

ADDITIONAL FUNDING TO FIGHT "THE WAR ON (SOME) DRUGS," AND A COMMON SHRUB, IS THE ICING ON THE CAKE FOR MANY FEDERALLY FUNDED CONCERNS. WE'RE TALKING LOTS OF MONEY HERE, AND GOD KNOWS OUR PRESIDENT CAN'T SEEM TO SPEND ENOUGH OF IT FAST ENOUGH. WE ARE IN FOR A VERY, VERY LONG HAUL. BUT FREEDOM AND LIBERTY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN WORTH THE FIGHT. OF COURSE, THERE COUND BE AN END TO THIS MADNESS IMMEDIATELY, IF WE COULD JUST GET OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS TO READ THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.

drug police in USA are busting our budget

were buying a whole lot of nothing .except making a bunch of otherwise chronically unemployable people rich .ninety five percent of these dumb asses cant hold a real job because they are jerk turds .yet were paying these corrupt morons big salary's and even bigger pensions to fuck every body .what the fuck defund these assholes before they totally destroy this country.they bring nothing to the table but misery .they are nothing but dispicable proffitters in human misery
