Reciprocity and extradition
In his recent talks with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieta, the man now occupying our White House failed to discuss the return of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. Sgt. Tahmooressi mistakenly entered Mexico with firearms that were registered in the USA. When he voluntarily informed the Mexican border control that he made a mistake by entering their country and had firearms on him, he was thrown in jail, where he was beaten and served dinners consisting of bread and sugar water.
Four violations of reciprocity
There are several points to be made. First, the Golden Rule that says:
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you
is essentially a law of reciprocity. Reciprocity works both ways. If the Mexican government feeds our citizens who happen to end up in their prisons nothing but bread and sugar water, shouldn’t we extend the courtesy to the many Mexican national criminals that are in our jails deservedly? That’s one point.
Next point: if Mexico is so stringent about illegal firearms entering their country, why haven’t they demanded that Eric Holder be extradited to Mexico for smuggling loads of illegal weapons into their country intentionally? And to our supreme negotiator, Barack Hussein Obama, I say, let’s trade one lying criminal attorney general for one noble marine sergeant. Now that would be a prisoner exchange I would deem worthy of negotiation.
Next point: if one of our own enters Mexico illegally (and in the case of Tahmooressi by mistake) and he is thrown in jail, beaten, treated poorly, and not given proper habeas corpus, shouldn’t we reciprocate with the many illegals that are entering our country daily – especially those carrying illegal firearms?
Last point: Mr. Obama, how dare you call yourself our Commander in Chief when you fail to negotiate – or even converse – with President Peña about freeing our marine? This is another title that you certainly do not deserve and one which you disgrace. You may think you’re getting away with destroying this country. But there is a God in heaven and I can assure you that He sees everything you are doing. He even knows where Lois Lerner’s emails are hidden. We are told to pray for our leaders and those in authority. My only prayer for you, BO, is that you don’t tempt me to sin – for every time I hear your name or see your pathetic lying face on television, I’m tempted to curse you. I can reconcile it somewhat because the Bible also tells us to hate evil, and you are just about as evil as they come. However, I do find comfort in knowing that revenge belongs to the Lord. I only hope I get to see when that revenge knocks on your door – the sooner, the better. And…I believe I speak for many Americans who feel the same way. You may be fooling some people – but the rest of us have your number.
