It was a crazy, busy, amazing weekend in the Chicago area. This week’s
Blogburst is chock full of video from…

Conference on Immigration
— Lake County

Several hundred patriots turned out to listen to and mingle with the
likes of Ted Hayes, Monica Ramos & Joe Loya, Rick Biesada, Rosanna
Pulido, and William Gheen. Not to mention Chris Burgard, whose movie, Border was screened at the
conference (my review is here).

in Waukegan

The anti-law enforcement crowd has been boycotting Waukegan businesses
that don’t display an orange “no 287(g)” sign in the window, so a bunch
of us, led by ALIPAC‘s William Gheen,
went shopping in businesses that DO support local authorities assisting
ICE with deporting illegal alien criminals.

Victory in

Several hundred patriots and about 1500 from the pro-illegal/open
borders side assembled outside Waukegan’s town hall as the council met for a
final vote on 287(g). There were cops stationed everywhere for
several blocks around the building. Snipers on the roof. Mounted police.
Police with dogs. Police in riot gear. Everyone was well protected as
the council voted (again) to pursue 287(g).

This has been the Blogs For Borders Video Blogburst. The Blogs For
Borders Blogroll is dedicated to American sovereignty, border security
and a sane immigration policy. If you’d like to join find

Fighting An Enemy Congress

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 17, 2007

I found an interesting article over at Redstate on my morning rounds:

Last week on his radio show, Morning in America, Bill Bennett proposed that the GOP presidential candidates hold a joint press conference. The purpose of such an event would be for the declared candidates to position themselves firmly beside President Bush and in support of his policies in fighting the Global War on Terror. Additionally, and perhaps more importantly, the candidates would be placing themselves directly in the path of a Congress hell bent on bringing about a defeat for America in Iraq.

Every candidate for the GOP nomination needs to stand up right now. In fact, I’d urge them to hold a joint press conference and stand up and say a) they support the troops and their mission; b) they believe in giving Petraeus and Lynch and their boys a chance; and c) that they will do everything in their political power to lead us through to victory, rather than retreat. It would be a helluva statement and a necessary corrective to the national debate. They should get together on this and do it next week. It would make the cover of every paper and we think it’d show the American people and the world that while we are divided on some things, we are not divided on war—at least one party in America is not divided. Guys, do this.

This is an idea whose time is now. This week, Congress continues to debate new and exciting plans designed to guarantee failure and humiliation in Iraq. The Republican presidential candidates, who stand to inherit the disaster the Democratic Congress is attempting to engineer, should put their primary rivalry aside for one day and fight back.

Will any of the current GOP candidates accept?
I don’t think they will because most of them are cowards, and do not have the vision such a move requires, not to mention leadership. That is one of the reasons the Fred Thompson campaign has generated so much buzz, so much hope, the current candidates do not.
