This week marks the third anniversary of Arizona rancher Rob Krentz’s murder. He was shot to death on his own property. The story is yet one more tragic example of the violence our fellow countrymen living in the American Southwest face everyday thanks to an unprotected border with Mexico.

Though, President Obama took the opportunity to further stir racial tensions in the wake of the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, by famously commenting: "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon," Obama has never publicly acknowledged Rob Krentz's murder.

While the mainstream press portrayed Martin as an innocent child simply trying to make his way home with a bag of candy (a story which quickly unraveled), that same press still cannot find one good thing to say about Krentz after three long years.

Here are the facts…

On March 27, 2010, Rob Krentz was shot to death near a watering hole on his 35,000-acre ranch. The lifeless body of his faithful dog, also shot to death, was lying beside him.

The motive for the murder was undoubtedly retaliation, as only a day before, his brother, Phil Krentz, phoned the Border Patrol to report drug smuggling activity on the ranch. As a result of the report, agents arrested eight illegal aliens and seized 290 pounds of marijuana.

The ranch which has been in the Krentz family since 1907 is located in a known smuggling corridor.

Shortly after his body was discovered, U.S. Border Patrol agents, sheriff's deputies and Department of Corrections dog chase teams followed a single set of foot tracks for 20 miles, to the Mexican border.

While Obama has the time to interject himself into a local crime, wherein, if the teenager had not been killed, he may very well have been charged with assault and battery, this same president cannot take the time to voice his support and anger over a fellow American being gunned down by what amounts to a foreign, hostile invader.

However, no one should be surprised by this, as Obama is the same president who for the last two years, has refused numerous requests to fly the White House flag in recognition of National Remembrance Day for Those Killed by Illegal Aliens.

To his devoted widow, Sue…Please know that there are millions of Americans who stand with you and see your husband as not only a great man, but as a man that we will never forget and for whom we will never stop fighting…even if President Obama couldn’t care less.
