U.S. declares war on Canadians

White House, today

Today, Gil Kerlikowske, Director of National Drug Control Policy, released the Obama Administration’s first-ever National Northern Border Counternarcotics Strategy. The Strategy outlines new actions that seek to reduce the two-way flow of illicit drugs between the United States and Canada [...]

“Disrupting the flow of illegal drugs across our borders is critical to our nation’s safety and security,” said Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano. [...]

Some key strategic objectives outlined in the Strategy include: [...]

  • Increasing the amount seized of illicit narcotics and drug proceeds crossing the Northern border by bolstering security at and between ports of entry.

  • Enhancing air and maritime domain awareness and response capabilities along the Northern Border.
  • Developing resources and providing training opportunities to tribal law enforcement agencies.
  • Targeting the financial infrastructure of Transnational Criminal Organizations.

Of course, just like with Mexico, this is being done with the full cooperation of the Canadian government. I’m sure the families of the 50,000 dead Mexicans will be happy to reassure Canadians that they have nothing to worry about.

    This is no surprise. They had a big push about ten years ago, and the results were tens of thousands of alienated Canadian and U.S. tourists, border communities split between those who make money from the crackdown and the rest of the community who are treated like suspects, and no appreciable change in the fluidity of this border. And lemme tell you, they ain’t building no fence on this one. Twenty miles from a border crossing up here and you may as well be three days into the wilderness. Forget tunnels, there are secret ROADS around here.

      …think Ho Chi Mihn trail, or the Honduras/Nicaragua border. There will be a bunch of extra dogs at the check points and a few extra Green and Whites on the roads. Meybe an extry hekalopter. If they gets real frisky a couple of roadblocks on secondary roads.

        Do you know, darkcycle, that there is a Border Patrol agent stationed down on the bay, on the old garbage dump site? he is there for his entire shift and the purpose of him being there is to watch for drugs coming in from the bay. I suspect there are two others to take the other two shifts, as well.

        I know this because hubby stopped down there and saw him so hubby chatted him up, apparently he was quite friendly and very open about why he was there. Next thing you know we’ll be subjected to check points set up on our rural roads and the freeway and perhaps even main streets in town. I have an aversion to most cops, don’t trust ‘em at all, would never turn my back on one. I certainly don’t want to have to go thru a check point, I’d probably end up in jail (or in the hospital from the beating/tasering/bullet wound) for asserting my unalienable rights and reciting the Bill of Rights at the top of my lungs.

    You cannot “secure” a border that big. They know this; they’re just looking busy. Have to justify that budget, after all.

    Well if the Liberals get their way we’ll have legalized pot after the next election. Ya right …I’m not holding my breath waiting for that empty promise.
    I let my passport expire cause I can’t be bothered with the hassle by the lawless border guards. Too bad because I have good friends in the US.

      Point of fact: The Liberal Party is a not insignificant political party in Canada. I only mention this because Nunavut’s post sounds like an American imi-con’s tirade without that context.

      Carry on.

    Be aware when in the nazi zone[100 miles from border] you have ZERO rights. So throw the constitution out the window and pick it up on the way back or it will be burned.

    What’s the difference between a Transnational Criminal Organization and a Transnational Law Enforcement Organization?

    I know everyone is probably wondering when I’m going to get around to using this wonderful stooge to segue into some Canadian bashing but I’m not going to do so here. This is being done to them and it’s a crying shame. I’ll save the insults for when (if?) they roll over and accommodate this nonsense because they don’t want to offend Uncle.

    This is what happens when citizens vote/hire former law enforcement officers to be politicians creating policy.
    STOP VOTING FOR ANY ONE WHO HAS HISTORY OF BEING LAW ENFORCEMENT!!

      Also anyone who is a lawyer, lawyers should be confined to the judicial branch of government, they should never be allowed anywhere near the legislative branch. Unfortunately the vast majority of members of congress were lawyers before they ran for office, they need to be replaced, ASAP.

    What I want to know is: Where’s all the money coming from?

    We’re effin’ broke as a country, and Uncle is still spending like the proverbial ‘drunken sailor’? What gives?

    More to the point, how much longer before something has to ‘give’? How much longer before the inevitable question is raised about how much is too much to spend?
