Obama set to ignore America’s repudiation of his policies

November 20, 2014

Exhibits brash contempt for still struggling American citizen workforce

As we await this evening’s announcement granting amnesty to upward of five million illegals, it’s worth keeping a sharp eye on the Republican establishment, some of whom are poised to cave to this dangerous overreach that will give rise to a further surge of invaders.  Beware when the words, “our nation’s immigration system is broken,” are used.

Surprisingly, the habitually deferential MSM networks —- ABC, CBS and NBC —- are reportedly taking a pass on Barack Obama’s primetime address, as he outlines his executive action in defiance of the American people who soundly rejected his schemes on Nov. 4.

In fact, this newly released NBC/WSJ poll shows Hispanics do not overwhelmingly support Obama’s decision to bypass Congress. Nearly half of all Americans express disapproval.

Acting unilaterally, the “Emperor of the United States,” as Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has so correctly tagged, him is moving forward with imposing executive amnesty.

Rush Limbaugh notes that Sessions is also the most eloquent, consistent, outspoken critic of illegal immigration and amnesty.  He writes op-eds and delivers effective speeches from the floor of the Senate. He has been tireless in his characterization of the danger that this portends to the country, to the future. He understands what’s at risk, both democratically and constitutionally.

For his efforts, Republican leadership in the Senate want to kick Sessions off the Budget Committee, where he is the Ranking Member. If that occurs, it pretty much tells us all  we need to know about what’s going to happen with the new Senate majority we were just rejoicing over.

After winning the only nationally uncontested senate election in 2014, Sessions said, “The American people dramatically repudiated the policies of President Obama, Senator Reid, and Leader Pelosi. It was also a dramatic affirmation of the policies our GOP candidates campaigned on: controlling spending, balancing the budget, repealing Obamacare, unleashing American energy, and boosting wages through pro-worker reforms.”

“Republicans in the House and Senate campaigned against the Obama-Senate immigration bill and on the pledge to block President Obama’s unlawful executive amnesty. The immediate emergency facing our new majority will be fighting the President’s disastrous planned actions, and we will have not only a Constitutional mandate but also a popular mandate to do so,” Sessions said.

“President Obama’s immigration order would provide illegal immigrants with the exact benefits Congress has repeatedly rejected: Social Security numbers, photo IDs and work permits —– which will allow them to now take jobs directly from struggling Americans in every occupation. Congress must not allow this unconstitutional action. That means Congress should fund the government while ensuring that no funds can be spent on this unlawful purpose.”

“The last six years of the Obama-Reid majority have been a government of the elites for the elites. Our new GOP Senators will lead the way in returning government to the loyal citizens who sent us here.”

Those were Sen. Sessions words following the election that swept Republicans into office nationwide earlier this month.  Will they ring true?

RIP: AZ Rep. David Burnell Smith

October 28, 2014

Rep_David_Burnell_Smith

It is with sadness we report that Republican former state Rep. David Burnell Smith has passed away at age 73.  Take time to read his fascinating biography.

Arrangements are pending. They will be announced here when they become available.

Update: We have been advised that the memorial service for Rep. David Burnell Smith will be private.

In 2006 Rep. Smith, then representing state Legislative District 7, was removed from his office by the unelected “Clean” Elections Commission.  A lawyer, Rep. Smith personally contacted the commission to inform them of a bookkeeping irregularity he discovered that took place during his 2004 primary campaign.

At the time, Rep. David Burnell Smith, a dedicated public servant and a true Southern gentleman, had the dubious distinction of being the only duly elected U. S. office holder so removed by a panel of unelected bureaucrats and an unelected administrative law judge. This quasi-governmental overreach occurred although criminal charges were never filed and no trial was ever held.

 Rep. David Burnell Smith lost by a mere 32 votes in the recent August 26, 2014 Primary Election.

Heartfelt condolences go out to his wife Rita and extended family.

September 24, 2014

We note with sadness the passing of David Gage, former chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party. He was elected to that post in 1971 at age 32. 

David was a respected lawyer who had an exemplary career and also devoted time to serving his community.

Time and place of the memorial service to honor his life can be found here.


JD Hayworth sends strong signal to conservatives in AG’s race

August 20, 2014

Hayworth joins Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Sen. Judy Burges and an impressive list of state Senators and Representatives, law enforcement professionals, NRA, former Senate President Russell Pearce, and Arizona’s conservative voters in supporting Attorney General Tom Horne

Dear Tom:

You have done a very effective job as Arizona’s Attorney General; that’s why I’m proud to endorse your candidacy for re-election.

Your insistence on truly protecting our Borders and opposing Amnesty for illegals has earned you the scorn of the Open Borders/ Establishment crowd.

I hope that Arizona Republicans won’t again be deceived by candidates who talk tough during the campaign season…only to slink back into working for Amnesty once safely re-elected.

Your consistent, conservative approach is greatly appreciated.

Good Luck in next week’s Primary Election!

Sincerely,

J.D. Hayworth

United States Congressman for Arizona

1995-2007

Gannett’s print and broadcast divorce

This recent Gannett press release slipped under the radar as politics dominate in this pre-election period. But make no mistake, the “separation” of fading print assets from its broadcast and digital businesses, signals a split that no conciliation expert worth his/her salt would consider repairable. Gannett is the parent company of the Arizona Republic —- often referred to on this site as the Periódico de la República de Arizona, for its relentless pro-amnesty positions —- and KPNX-TV 12 in Phoenix. The mirror-image entities are housed in the same building.

Gracia Martore, president and CEO, said, “The bold actions we are announcing…are significant next steps in our ongoing initiatives to increase shareholder value by building scale, increasing cash flow, sharpening management focus, and strengthening all of our businesses to compete effectively in today’s increasingly digital landscape.

Translation: Print is dead, The fetid stench of decay assaults the senses.

When the Gannett chairman of the board then announces the company “has made huge strides in strengthening each of its businesses over the past few years, and the Board believes that the creation of two highly focused companies with enhanced financial and regulatory flexibility will accelerate growth and create additional value for our shareholders,” it’s clear concern for the shareholders exceed those of the dying newspapers.

The pull-down “Arizona” box under the map, provides an indication of a likely problem.  The now defunct Tucson Citizen is misspelled as Tuscon. When the mighty media giant Gannett can’t spell the name of its own holdings —- former or not —- it signals the dissolution is merely a formality. The love was gone when the subscriptions caved.
