Dinosaur eggs for the Chi-Coms and Gold Coins for Saudi patrons of 9/11 hijackers.
Well, it’s good to know that our immigration enforcement tax dollars are going to “good” use . . . to pounce on dinosaur eggs on behalf of Communist China.
Almost a year ago, I told you how Julie L. Myers, Chieftess of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a/k/a “The ICE Princess” wasted countless hundreds of thousands of your tax dollars on investigating and seizing coins found by a diver far off the coast of Saudi Arabia–and, of course, giving them to the Saudi government. It isn’t clear whether or not the coins were even found in Saudi waters, and even if they were, they were from a day and time thousands of years before there even was a Saudi Arabia.
But our tax dollars–meant for enforcing immigration laws and customs laws against terrorist arms smugglers and money launderers–went to help the Saudis. And The ICE Princess basked in the glow of praise from then-Saudi Ambassador and personal friend of Osama Bin Laden, Prince Turki Al-Faisal. How proud she was to hang with and be gushed over by the enemy.
Now, The ICE Princess has a new enemy friend, for whom she’s wasted yet more of our tax dollars: Communist China. ICE agents in Los Angeles–because there are no pressing immigration and smuggling problems in Southern California!–wasted time and effort to seize fossilized dinosaur eggs that may have been improperly taken from China, despite being LEGALLY bought by an American collector in 2003 (China objects to the fact that the eggs are not on display in China, instead of America). The ICE Press Release conveniently omits the part about the American collector who is now out several hundred thousand dollars. (They found out about the eggs by reading of the auction in a USA Today article.)
This is absurd.
Even if the eggs were brought here illegally, why are we wasting ICE money on this? We have millions of illegal aliens crawling all over our country. There are plenty of Muslim money launderers, sham marriage ring operators, and weapons smugglers.
And amidst it all, The ICE Princess is wasting our tax money to help the Chinese get some dinosaur eggs.
First, the Saudis get some gold coins. Then, the Chinese get dinosaur eggs.
Your tax dollars at work.
Robert Schoch, the ICE Special Agent in Charge for Los Angeles, compares the story of the dinosaur eggs and the investigtion to a “plot twist in an Indiana Jones movie.” Uh, no it isn’t. It’s just a silly story of agents reading a USA Today account about an auction over eggs and then taking them on behalf of Communists. I’d say that sounds more like a bad Saturday Night Live skit.
By the way . . . I heard that someone has a pet earthworm they got on a trip to Iran. They may also have President Ahmadinejad’s pet rock collection, too. Time for The ICE Princess to swing agents in to action and investigate.
We must spend our tax dollars to return the insect and the stones to their proper country of origin.
