DHS: Terrorists crossing border from time to time?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On radio today, Glenn played shocking audio from Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano saying that terrorists are crossing the southern border from “time to time.” At the same time, she tries to assure the Homeland Security Committee that everything is perfectly fine. That is a pretty significant leap in logic, isn’t it?

“So Janet Napolitano has come out and said that, okay, from time to time there might be, I mean maybe once in a while a terrorist crosses the border,” Glenn said as he introduced the clip.

At the hearing, Rep. Ron Barber (D-Ariz.) asked,”As you know, Madam Secretary, there have been anecdotal reports about material evidence of the presence of terrorists along our southern border. My question is, is there any credible evidence that these reports are accurate and that terrorists are, in fact, crossing our southern border with the intent to do harm to the American people?”

Napolitano responded, “With respect, there have been–and the Ababziar matter would be one I would refer to that’s currently being adjudicated in the criminal courts–from time to time, and we are constantly working against different and evolving threats involving various terrorist groups and various ways they may seek to enter the country.”

“What I can tell you, however, is that that southern border–the U.S.-Mexico border–is heavily, heavily staffed at record amounts of manpower, materiel, infrastructure and the like, and we are constantly making sure we’re doing all we can to make that border as safe as possible,” she added.

“That’s amazing. That’s amazing. Think of this. Here is the chief of an agency that didn’t exist ten years ago. We started this stupid agency because we said, hey, let’s stop terrorism. That’s what it’s all about. Nothing else. Terrorism. Let’s stop terrorism. Here she is protecting our border supposedly telling us that everything is really okay. No, seriously it’s really, it’s all good. It’s all super, super good on the border. From time to time a terrorist will go through the border, but it’s not a big deal whatsoever. Not a big deal. Really? Really?” Glenn said in disbelief.

    Only in the delusional, insane, radical propagandist utopian dreamland of the left and of the administration can it even be called ‘safe’ and ‘secure’ on the borders.

    One terrorist is enough; and mind you, Napoletano is more concerned with finding any and all domestic terrorists, such as the conservatives, christians, tea party members, and those who love freedom and small government, than any foreign agents unless it is political expedient to apprehend them.

    Homeland Security has failed completely failed across the board; and has become a insturment for persecution and repression of more and more of our civil liberties under Obama. He is using them to build his own tyranny for a second term if he obtains one.

    We have borders as porus as anything.
    We have unofficial amnesty via executive orders on no deportation.
    We have confirmed accounts of terrorists coming across the borders.
    We have an administration supplying drug dealers, associated w/terrorists, arms under the Fast and Furious and God alone knows how many other, yet undiscovered, projects.

    Napoletano is delusional and a liar, plus a fanatic follower of Obama; she will spin any and all details to try and cover up the truth and keep her job. How many other crimes has she ordered, or permitted to happen?

    How long will it be until we wake up one day and discovered that a terrorist who came across the border has detonated a WMD (NBC-RE) and potentially killed millions?

    How much blood will Obama and all of his administraiton have to answer for on their hands by the time their madness ends?

       Very Nice!
      It must be rewarding to be a sexist little fuck!!!

        You throw around the word sexist too easily. And I sorta doubt any non-sociopathic heterosexual can truly be sexist, I think it’d only truly be possible for someone incapable of loving the other sex.

        Besides, are you saying anyone who calls a woman a bitch is sexist if they are male? Women use the word more often. But perhaps it’s like “nig*er” in that only the race/gender which is affected is politically correct to use it. Silly double standard.

          I guess in your world you are right…
          You and any other person in America has the right to use hurtful, slanderous, vulgar to discuss any person in America who is different from you!!!
          I can only assume that if a person walked up to you and your mother, looks you both straight in the eyes and calls your mother a “bitch” it would be perfectly fine with you?!
          I, on the other hand, would take offense to such an exchange.

    This sow isn’t the slightest bit concerned about terrorists. Except, of course, those terrorists who revere the Constitution, love this nation, and decry high taxes and big government. These people are extremely dangerous.

    Doesn”t matter now how secure the border is. all the illlegals have to say is that they are “dream” kids. ICE can not investigate how long they have been here, how old they are, if they went to school here or anything else that might help identify a terrorist over a high school student trying to find a job. Scary. Can we last 6 more months?  Do not think we will still be the same kind of nation if there are four more years of this garbage with no restraint.

       the border has been like this for decades.
      there are many things Obama is uniquely bad at and can and should be critiqued on.  The border is just one thing he is the same as pretty much all his predecessors.

      • Anonymous

        Good point about the borders being open for many years.
        Do you think the situation is getting worse and the “dream act” will encourage more to cross the border or am I uninformed about what has transpired in the recent past? I remember when Reagan gave amnesty to illegals with the plan to then seal the border. Did not happen. I remember when Carter told Cuba we would take anyone that could make it to our shores so they opened their prisons and sent them to the US. Maybe this will not make much difference in the number of illegals coming to the country. Soon, they will have the added incentive of receiving Obamacare once their feet hit US soil. Wish there was someone that would take the border seriously and close it off. Other countries seem to have no trouble controlling their borders.

          Other countries have much smaller borders for the most part and not the same kind of problem we have. Fences don’t work, but you definitely should monitor the border. I think the way to address this problem is take away the incentive to come over here illegally. An illegal crossing is very risky and expensive for many illegals (who are mostly destitute). If it was faster and easier to get here legally then that would be the way people would choose to go.

    Hey Janet!

    Do you know where the 700 suitcase and backpack nukes are, which were issued to Russian KGB agents? Could some of these have been carried into the country via Mexico from ‘time to time’?

    Terrorists cross the border every day legally. They’re called muslims.

        Islam is evil. If you don’t believe so, you need to read the Quran. If you still believe it is a religion of peace then you are galactically stupid and beyond help.

        There little book is one of hatred, enslavement and death.

        • http://twitter.com/paoligarcy Paolina Garcia

          This is not true. Islam is about obedience to God, and in that regard they do better than us Christians.

          Or are you saying you are fine with America becoming the new Sodom and Gomorrah? I once hated muslims too, until God spoke to me about the errors of that thought.

          It is us disobedient Christians who are in trouble. And the number of muslims who become terrorists is SHOCKINGLY small considering if China occupied Texas I am sure nearly a fourth of us would rise up and shoot them.

          Most of them are not that devout enough to fight back against oppressive foreigners trying to force them to accept the “american way of life” (pornography, fast food, and voting for the best liars).

             Islam is about obedience to a false god – a demonic entity demanding slavish adherence to oppressive laws.

            It is dedicated to the obliteration of the apple of God’s eye – the Jews, a logical contradiction of the love God has for the people He chose.

            It had attempted to capture the central city  – Jerusalem – and set up their own false god there, when it is God’s decree that he will sit on His throne in Jerusalem.

            Everything about Islam is anti-god and anti-Christian. It was founded in blood and gore, and nothing has changed – they are of their father the devil – seeking who they can destroy next.

            No amount of whitewash will cover the evil corruption that is the basis for their religion.

            Are they devout and sincere? Some. Most are living in apostasy, more interested in physical and cultural pleasure than jihad, but every once in a while, one gets a “revelation” of their need to please their demon god, and toddle off to kill some non-believers.

            Some, upon reading their “holy” book, believe the more non-believers they kill, the greater service the have performed for their demon god.

            And, in contrast to Christianity, they have no certainty of their eternal abode, so must continually look for ways to please their god. Mass murder is one effective way to do so.

            In contrast, Christianity teaches that there is absolutely nothing we can do to earn salvation. It is a free gift for those who accept it. We serve a God who loves us enough to allow HIs Son to die and pay the price for our sins. There is no love in their demon god. The Jihadists must sacrifice others repeatedly to please their god, and even then have no certainty of salvation.

            Are they God;s instrument to bring America to its knees? Very possibly. God brings judgement for sin. America is so evil that God must soon apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.

            God used pagans to bring judgement upon the Jews when they turned their backs on Him. God may well use the Jihadists to bring America to that point, for we have certainly turned our backs on God, as a nation, and while His judgement may be slow, it is also sure.

            Islam is about dominating the world. They are called to do so in the Quran. Have you read it? I have. There is nothing redeeming or inspirational about enslavement.

            As far as Sodom and Gomorrah go, I don’t know what you mean by that.

        • Anonymous

          By just reading the bible can you truly understand Christianity and all Christians? The Old Testament has plenty of horrific passages. Just by reading the Qur’an doesn’t mean you really know anything about Islam, just like just be reading the Bible doesn’t mean you know anything about all the different denominations of Christianity and the differences of opinion they have and why they have the different opinions and how the religion impacts politics or its historical impact. The Qur’an requires a lot of context about where and what was going on at the time God had Muhammad give specific passages. The Haddiths are also very important in Islam. It’s sort of like saying that b/c you know addition, subtraction, and your multiplication tables you know math. You know the very basics of math but it is only the tip of the iceberg.

    Well about 6 years ago on my  ranch land a mile north of the Mex Border at JACUMBA/ Boulebvard area where ‘coyote’ car drivers await the crossings of many who get taken through and then they get their ‘driver’ to take them on to LA? or SD? or Just anywhere but Mexico.

    My ranch hand found an old patch on my 16 acres out thatawy and among other plastic water bottles left behind, along with old men’s womens clothing,a few shoes,  and Aluminum cans with Spanish writing on it along with so many  other scarey items left behind by these people who cross at night when there is no moon… but I Digress.

    My hand found what looked like an old boy scout patch dirtied and muddied up.
    And it had arabic writing on it.

    So yes America they are here already. They are awaiting instructions from the people getting them in here.

    We also have extravagant tunnels out this border with air conditioning, electrical wiring for lights and big enough to stand up in. These are very similar to those found in Middle East in scope and methods. So- DONDE ESTAN/

    Keep in mind many Arabic people coming through here look like their compadres as Mexicans, so they can pass as Mexicans. 


    Get your fat ass down here and surprise the BP. Just as the PREZ. Surprises troops.
    You will be so fired and never set foot in any govt agency once the MAHDI is brought about really soon by the little beady eyed guy in IRAN. He wants to end the whole crazy stuff and get the world on to HIS SIde.


    God bless you and God bless our AMERICA- that the other students who are here from ARABIC countries want to take over slowly and inculcate those other people here who have no religion, no spirituality and they are ripe for the picking to convert. 
    Get yer GUNS and yer GOD here in US and take back our America all Judeo Christian pbople who are TOLERANT>. So TOLERANT We are in USA that those arriving here to do us harm LAUGH at US- A.

      A little Rocky Horror Picture Show, eh , Wherda?   Now, if we could only have a bit of

      The Time Warp to get us back to the Reagan years.  Hell, I’d even take the Clinton era.

      You are so right about the infiltration, if you will, of those coming over with Mexicans.

      I had read an article awhile back which said men from the Middle East were coming into

      Mexico, staying in order to learn the language (and some customs) and would cross

      with Mexicans.  In case they were caught, because they knew the language and the

      ways, they were sent back with no questions asked.  Beautiful.

    Sadly, there are probably more terrorists in the obama administration through the democrat party than what comes over the border illegally.

    I guess it’s not too big a deal if you live in the DC area.  Living in a border state may be a whole

    other story.  If there is no tracking of these ”from time to time” crosses, how many of those who

    crossed illegally can/could be called terrorists?  Thanks, Ms. Napolitano for looking out for us.

    Not a big deal WHAT.  This woman and all the o/Obama czars and admin officials who are removing our rights, freedoms and our Constitution which the prez has ignored from day freakin one, and she says this is not a big deal.  It has been clear since obama b/came prez that we the people of this country are and must do ourselves what he and his admin must do KEEP US SAFE.  His socialis/communist policies are destroying the fabric of America and to which he’ll then institute his communist dictatorial rule OMG it is way beyond the time to stop this nut.  Impeachment is still an opttion but if we have to count on H. Reid I love the prez to do it foget abt it.  It ain’t gettin done.  So this border to which obamas cut border stations is safe and maybe one terrorist crosses into the US is no big deal maybe not to her welll see Nov is coming

    Under Obama the department has become an instrument to advance his political aims, not to keep Americans safe from terrorists. When I lived in San Diego, friends of mine in the Border Patrol told me that they caught about 1/3 of the border crossers each night. The rest got away, some back into Mexico and others going on north. They knew that there were Islamists among them and Mexican Immigration was arresting 60 to 70 per month in Mexico. It is a lot worse now and Napolitano is just a political hack who has no business leading an agency that is supposed to stop this sort of thing. Of course, if she really did her job then the number of illegal aliens availble to vote for Obama might be reduced and they CAN’T have that!

    Napolitano does not consider jihadists to be a threat to America.  Her primary concern is former solders or people who disagree with the government.
