A Liar in Congress
Raoul Lowery Contreras
As this article is written, one or more Mexicans will die in the desert between the United States and Mexico while attempting to cross into the United States looking for work. As this article is written, American cowards are waving charges around that remind one of the drunken Senator Joseph McCarthy and his waving a “list” of known Communists in the United States Department of State.
Bodies of twelve Mexicans were discovered in the Arizona desert this week. At the same time, Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo of Colorado announced that he had proof that the head of the Arizona Border Patrol Sector had ordered his agents to ignore and not arrest illegals. Tancredo alleges this occured during the time the “Minutemen” gang was “border patrolling” a tiny sector of the Arizona Mexican border.
“Proof,” Tancredo states, he has “proof” that such an order was given by the Border Patrol official. Where is it?
When Wisconsin’s Senator McCarthy charged that the State Department had 211 known Communists, he never produced the list he waved around; then, on another occasion, he claimed 280, then 200, then 250 Communists. What was it senator? He never produced the list; he never proved his claim. He didn’t because he was a liar.
Congressman Tom Tancredo of Colorado joins McCarthy in the pantheon of great American political liars.
Question: When Tancredo claimed a top Mexican official told him that it was Mexican policy to invade the United States with illegals, where was a witness, a document that supported his claim on the floor of Congress? There was and is none, except in Tancredo’s drug saturated mind.
Question: Why do fellow Republican officeholders in Colorado refuse to appear with Tancredo at public events? Because, Tancredo evaded the Selective Service draft during the Vietnam War by claiming he was mentally ill, anxiety attack prone and on mind affecting DRUGS.
Question: Why is Tom Tancredo not allowed in the White House, or allowed to chair a House of Representatives committee? Because, he has attacked the President of the United States and solutions to the illegal alien problem proposed by the President and his supporters in Congress. It may be a free country and Tancredo can speak his mind, but he has no political right to yell “Fire!” in a crowded political theater and expect to be invited to the White House or to be adored by his peers in Congress..
If Tancredo is correct that a Border Patrol official ordered local agents to back off, where is the memorandum? Where are the names and ranks of agents that were ordered to back off? Where is the whistle-blowing news conference of these agents making their charges? There is no news conference, there is no memorandum, there are no eyewitnesses to such orders.
Tom Tancredo is a liar. He is also a loser.
He formed a Political action Committee that is run by Pat Buchanan’s “brother (as described by radio talker Don Imus),” Bay Buchanan, to support fellow traveling liars in their runs for Congress last year. Each and every one he supported failed to win a Republican nomination or a general election.
Tancredo chose not to run for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Colorado’s Ben Nighthorse Cambell for the simple reason that he knew he couldn’t convince the people of Colorado to elect a draft-dodger during time of war. With polling, Tancredo found that most people don’t even consider illegal aliens to be a major problem. The public discovered that he has little respect among his own peers in congress, and he discovered that he has no traction among Colorado’s diverse statewide electorate.
Tancredo is a liar and loser. While he lies; while he leads his motley crew of losers, another Mexican dies in the desert coming to America for a job, another American employer breaks the law because he needs to hire people to fill jobs Tom Tancredo’s followers will not do or work at. Proof of this is everywhere for all to see.
What we don’t see is proof from Tancredo that he is anything but a McCarthy clone waving an imaginary list around, a list of imaginary Border Patrol agents who claim they were ordered to ignore illegals as they crossed the border.
