CORRUPTION, PERJURY, CRIME WITH DHS AND CONGRESS DOES NOTHING

(Jan. 5, 2014) — Documentation, whistle blowers from DHS and well over 30 pages of names, dates and facts exposed on my national radio show. Part 1 – January 2nd, 2014, last hour – www.therothshow.com
Congress says they don’t want to hear it because they are pushing for amnesty with Boehner.
This week one of my fabulous and regular guests, Andy Ramirez, President of Law Enforcement Officers Advocates Council, Inc. broke on my national radio show evidence of massive corruption, lies, perjury and crime peppered through our border patrol, immigration policy and enforcement over many years inside of the Department of Homeland Security.
Andy stated that David Aguilar, who in March 2013 retired from DHS as the long-time Acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (and Chief of the Border Patrol between 2004-2009), perjured himself before Congress, including in February 2007 before the House Committee on Homeland Security’s Border Subcommittee. As a result of the Aguilar appearance, Andy was asked by GOP Members to testify in a follow-up hearing in March 2007 and tell the facts given as they believed Aguilar lied before the committee. Andy was informed he was needed to tell the truth and facts, which he did. http://www.andyramirez.com/pdf/Ramirez_HHSC_03-08-07.pdf – Andy’s official written testimony http://www.andyramirez.com/pdf/CQ_Ramirez_Testifies_HomelandSecurityComm_032007.pdf – Article by Congressional Quarterly comparing the testimony of Ramirez and Aguilar.
Aguilar, appointed in 2004, transformed the Border Patrol into a dangerous brigade in which its agents could not do what they needed to do to defend the borders, nor have the technology to operate. Ramirez states that Aguilar had total cover from Rep. Silvestre Reyes, who was Aguilar’s former boss in the Border Patrol in South Texas where Reyes was a Chief Patrol Agent. Reyes lost his re-election bid in the 2012 El Paso, TX primary after serving eight terms. They were both transforming the Border Patrol into nothingness so the illegals could continue storming through.
Aguilar lied before the committee. Andy was informed he was needed to tell the truth and facts, which he did.
In a private briefing in mid-July 2013 with top GOP Congressmen who serve on committees with direct oversight over the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Andy informed Members of Congress that official DHS representatives lied in official sworn testimony on June 27, 2013 before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s Border Subcommittee headed by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT). In his confidential report filed in late July, he identified the specific times where representatives from the Border Patrol, Office of Field Operations (known previously as Customs), and the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency were not only stonewalling questions by the committee members but clearly misleading Congress. But that is a pattern that has long gone on for years at DHS under both the Bush and Obama Administrations.
Andy identifies that a well-placed confidential source informed him they were ordered to do so by superiors, which was not surprising given that the Gang of 8’s amnesty bill, S-744, was up for final vote, and was passed by the U.S. Senate that very day.
I asked Ramirez: “Why is there so little enforcement on real border security and such an obsession with amnesty? We both believe it has never had a thing to do with helping poor and desperate people…as Bush used to say, ‘family values’ coming across the border…bla, bla and bla.” It is twofold: 1) The Democrats and the Republicans want to bring over slave labor AND a voter bloc they think they can control – desperate people who vote their way 2) Billions of dollars in drug money going all the way to the top. There are no doubt people and leadership all along the way from the Mexican Government up to our White House who will do anything to protect their drug money. It is big business.
Andy forwarded me several documents as evidence as well as the actual report provided to Congress from July 2013 and testimony before Congress clear back to July 5, 2006 on the corruption, mismanagement, and perjury. The 2013 information was initially well-received but once he departed DC, the information was virtually ignored by August.
See the testimony of Andy Ramirez before the House International Relations, now known as Foreign Affairs Committee’s Subcommittee on International Terrorism and Global Nonproliferation, where he first identified a border security program, Project Athena, that not only accurately monitored the U.S.–Canadian Border but also the U.S.–Mexican Border and exceeded all expectations, unlike the fraud-filled Secure Borders Initiative (SBI), which was selected by DHS (and ultimately then-Chief Aguilar) in 2006. http://www.andyramirez.com/pdf/CongressionalTestimony_AMRamirez_07062006.pdf

During the same July 2013 visit to Capitol Hill, Andy Ramirez also spoke to the top staff of Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, who were thoroughly briefed on his documentation and the corruption in DHS. Issa’s staff also received a written copy of the report provided to other members he met with. I must note that Issa is also a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee.
Unbelievably, Andy was informed by another Congressman that he met with that it was pointless to seek support from GOP Chairman Bob Goodlatte of the Judiciary Committee, as Goodlatte was being pressured by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor who had an adjacent district in Virginia. Congressman Mike McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, would want to turf this to his committee as an “immigration matter,” though in reality, this is a corruption matter. Given McCaul’s approach on immigration legislation and knowing that Speaker Boehner would not back it, Issa’s Oversight Committee was believed to be the best bet due to the pure corruption issue at hand given he’d taken on Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the IRS, and other top Obama officials in his committee.
Why wouldn’t they really help? According to Andy, Boehner, Cantor, and many other Republicans were trying to get ‘amnesty’ pushed through, and his report was simply in the way. Apparently we can’t have the public knowing just how corrupt DHS really is regarding border security and immigration issues. That might hurt their deceitful and progressive plan to cram amnesty through and have the same criminals run it.
Ramirez stated to me that the doors were also shut by other leading conservative anti-amnesty reps, citing the push for amnesty and Boehner not wanting to be sidetracked. One member who was most interested in helping fight this informed Andy that his hands were tied, but he had informed Chairman Chaffetz and his staff and forwarded the report and documentation.
We will be revealing all their names over the next few weeks in continued articles.
Hearing all this on my show from Andy was just about making my head explode I was so angry. Here we are, facing the 2014 elections and desperately needing and hoping for real conservative leadership to win — repeal Obamacare and fix things. Then we hear how even the ‘conservative’ Republicans such as Darrell Issa who know better are supporting the manipulative and deceitful push for amnesty. They are doing this while they look the other way in exposing massive and multi-year corruption in the DHS regarding border security and the Border Patrol! It is just inconvenient to confront and deal with corruption and observe the law.
At this time Andy Ramirez and I are exposing the slammed door and inaction by Oversight Chairman Issa and his staff because they were fully informed by Andy and chose not to act. Instead, Ramirez was given smiles, thanked for his time and what have you but ultimately showed the door because ‘Boehner’ wouldn’t go for it and they were pushing for amnesty.
Andy and I feel as if we were on the set of “Alice in Wonderland, Part 2,” as many GOP and most Dems and Obama are trying anything they can to slam ‘amnesty’ through while people aren’t looking and are being swallowed up in horror by Obamacare.
The same corrupt DHS, internal affairs cover-ups and fraud will run ‘amnesty’ in its various color of the week, as was running and destroying our Border Patrol and national security at ports of entry. At least the crime family is organized and experienced so crime will continue to roll out smoothly against Americans.
Spread this around to everyone you know and stay tuned for part 2. Join me on my national radio show each day from 7-10 pm PAC at www.therothshow.com.
