Mexican cartels threaten assassination of AZ lawmen

April 27, 2014

The Sierra Vista Herald details the dangerous escalation of events during what should have been a routine traffic stop, resulting in an officer involved shooting death of Lauro Jesus Avechuco, 40.

Avechuco is alleged to have driven his car at the officer, precipitating the deadly incident.  In accordance with department policy, the officer, Justin Dannels has been placed on administrative leave until a joint investigation by Sierra Vista police, the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI can be completed and reviewed by the Cochise County Attorney’s Office.

In most instances, the news report would stop there.

But in this case, Officer Dannels is the son of Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels, and the incident has ignited “credible” death threats against the father and son from the drug cartels that control the area.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Sylvia Longmire, a Breitbart News border security expert and contributing editor, lives in southern Arizona. She is quoted as saying, “The region immediately south of Sierra Vista and Naco are predominantly controlled by the Sinaloa cartel. If credible threats are coming from that region, it is either from the Sinaloa directly, or from a criminal enterprise under the umbrella of the cartel.”

Longmire added, “Threats such as these bring increased scrutiny to the region and can interfere with the cartels smuggling efforts. If such threats did not originate with cartel approval, the issuer of the threats could find themselves in serious trouble with the Sinaloa Federation.”

Breitbart’s Brandon Darby provides the complete menacing report. As you digest the facts as they relate to the safety and security of our Arizona citizens and the lawmen who defend them, consider the cavalier attitude of the Congressional elite who are intent on pushing an amnesty bill that omits the volatile word ‘amnesty’ —- since it rings in as a miserable failure among focus groups. Remember when “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” was the reconstructed verbiage used by Sens. Kyl and McCain?  Today, the preferred terminology is “legal status” and it is always used in conjunction with a worthless pledge to implement “border security.”

August is the latest prioritized deadline to turn on the flashing neon welcome sign on our border and roll out the red carpet for the multitude of illegals that will surely follow the hordes of invaders already here. We wrote this warning on Friday.

Language is important. When the words “breaking up families,” “undocumented immigrants,”  “migrants” or the bogus figure of11 million in the shadows” are used, it’s time to burn up the congressional phone lines. We’re losing our country and those Republicrats we sent to Washington are enabling the takeover. Their incomprehensible efforts will also ensure the death of the Republican Party under whose banner they ran.

Will you be able to look your children —- or theirs —- in the eye if you do nothing?


Amnesty lurks, prepare for post-election thrust

April 25, 2014

Boehner, McCain, sycophant Flake poised to pounce; AZ 4 clearly onboard amnesty effort

Speaking at a Rotary Club in his Ohio home district, John Boehner mocked his fellow GOP Congressmen, saying they’re afraid to reform immigration policy.

“Here’s the attitude. Oh-h-h-h. Don’t make me do this. Oh-h-h-h. This is too hard.” Boehner engaged in the farcical imitation of his prudent colleagues before the lunchtime crowd he addressed.

“We get elected to make choices. We get elected to solve problems and it’s remarkable to me how many of my colleagues just don’t want to —- they’ll take the path of least resistance,” he sniffed.

Those colleagues he was referring to also know Boehner can’t vote for any of them and their conservative constituents are not onboard gifting illegal invaders with American citizenship.

The Left has intentionally misrepresented the desire to have our border respected as “anti-immigrant,” omitting the key word, “illegal.” But Gallup polling reflects the hard truth that only 13% of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing. Moveover, continued unemployment and under-employment among our own citizens dispute the need to import more competition for fewer jobs.

Allahpundit at Hot Air blog reports that John McCain is now tooting a new tune regarding shoving amnesty down the throats of the American people. His latest claim is that America has dishonored itself by dragging its feet in rewarding approximately 30 million foreign nationals who broke into our country —- with the gift of our citizenship. The blog notes that McCain vows to name any such bill in honor of his close senate associate, the late Ted Kennedy.

For John McCain, repeatedly censured by Arizona Republicans, and slick enough to survive the Keating Five Corruption Scandal that took down other senators in 1989, to talk in terms of a stain on honor would be laughable if not so…well…McCainish. Nothing this man does surprises Arizonans anymore.

Just days ago we reported that Jeff Flake complemented Republicrat Jeb Bush for referring to the illegal invasion as “an act of love,“ actually saying the issue “shouldn’t rile people up.” As if on cue, McCain’s doppelganger Jeff Flake agreed with Bush, praising him for having “the guts to say it.” 

Last May, Arizona’s GOP U.S. Reps. Paul Gosar, Matt Salmon and David Schweikert co-authored this bit of deception, “What immigration reform must entail,” winning praise from the pro-amnesty daily newspaper. Their prose included these words: “At the same time, there is no benefit to keeping 11 million illegal immigrants trapped in the shadows. In fact, it is in our country’s interest to know who they are and where they live. Reforming our immigration system to address the status of the 11 million people in our country illegally should focus on normalizing their legal status without access to federal benefits or a special pathway to citizenship.”

Though not part of this particular trio of deceivers, U.S. Rep. Trent Franks has not only allowed illegals and their supporters to camp overnight in the front yard of his family home —- he joined them in prayer.

Stay alert. Keep calling your members of congress. Don’t allow these self-serving politicians to throw open the floodgates of our sovereign nation. Nothing has changed since Ronald Reagan misguidedly conferred amnesty on millions in 1986. There has been no actual effort to staunch the deluge of illegal entrants in the nearly 30 years since.

It’s time to say, “Enough!”

 


Boehner “Hellbent” on passing amnesty

April 19, 2014

GOP crafting plan to alter country, guarantee its own irrelevancy

The Wall Street Journal reports John Boehner and other senior House Republicans are telling donors and industry groups that they intend to pass amnesty legislation this year, despite the disinclination of many Republicans to tackle the divisive issue prior to the November elections.  

Most of us have assumed the irrational idea of gifting citizenship —- even in a deceptive “piecemeal” fashion —- to our invaders would be back-burnered in an election year. But Boehner,who has hired McCain’s senior amnesty advisor, appeared at a Las Vegas fundraiser last month, stridently declaring he was “hellbent on getting this done this year.”

Don’t be fooled by what we are being told by the Republican House members. Their chief issue is the timing of the vote, not the vote itself. The last thing they want is angry constituents in advance of the upcoming midterm elections, although none in Arizona are facing tough primaries. They are also banking on the fact after they are reelected, our focus will be on the  2016 presidential election. They have already made their intentions to cave on amnesty clear.

This is the double-talk from AZ’s Republican U.S. Reps. Paul Gosar, Matt Salmon and David Schweikert. Trent Franks not only allowed amnesty proponents and their supporters to camp out overnight in his front yard, he went outside to pray with them.

On the senate side, McCain has vowed to keep fighting for amnesty as long as he’s “alive and breathing.” His sycophantic underling Jeff Flake has never made a secret of his support of amnesty.

After the widespread disillusionment with ObamaCare and Obama’s poll numbers continuing to plummet —- as his disapproval numbers exceed approval —-Republicans are poised to win control the Senate. But to borrow a term from Boehner, they appear to be “hellbent” to deep-six their chances by becoming embroiled in forwarding the divisive amnesty issue.

This Congressional Budget Office estimate indicates that ObamaCare has the potential to decrease the number of full-time American workers by 2.5 million over the next decade. That grim prediction by the non-partisan CBO should be an area where Republicans focus their attention.

Those who believe support from grateful Hispanics would be important to the Republican nominee need to bone up on history. Immigrants —- all immigrants —- have been bonded to the Democrat Party and generations after their first arrivals, their descendants have remained so. Recent arrivals tend to be poor and dependent on government assistance. They often come from societies that are far left-wing. History shows that rather than fleeing those policies, they bring their cultures with them. For at least a century, there’s never been a period when a majority of immigrants weren’t Democrats. At the current accelerated rate of immigration — 1.1 million new immigrants every year, without amnesty — Republicans will be a fringe party in a decade.

Rush Limbaugh has long warned that Republicans are signing onto political suicide in conspiring with Democrats in their attempt to legalize illegal aliens. Limbaugh contends it is ultimately a push for citizenship intended to grant voting rights to a new Democrat demographic.

Ann Coulter has written extensively on the same theme, with Hispanicked GOP Elite and GOP Crafts Plan to Wreck the Country, Lose Voters. In this column Phyllis Schlafly correctly concluded Amnesty Is Republican Party Suicide.

If Republicans are to remain viable, there are critical issues such as massive debt, the unsustainability of Social Security, federal overreaches and a seriously declining economy for us to be “hellbent” on exposing.


Bill Montgomery’s REAL(ly) strange friends

March 21, 2014

Republican pretenders blow their cover

A group calling itself theReal Arizona Coalition,” claims it is inclusive, broad-based and represented by a respected and multicultural array of the state’s community, faith and business leadership organizations. These people, we’re advised, represent many thousands of other individuals throughout Arizona.

It’s a pitch that sounds more like a threat than a promise. Then comes, what the used car salesman at the shoddy downtown lot calls the “big closer.” The Real Arizona Coalition’s “Real Solution,” it turns out, is the “SANE Approach to Federal Immigration Reform.”

The first clue is the hackneyed old saw that our immigration system is broken. In fact the system isn’t broken at all.  What has collapsed is the will of the political establishment to push back against the vast illegal invasion of our country. The group has every trite response, including repeatedly telling us “we need federal immigration reform for a 21st century economy.”

Worse is the Real Arizona Coalition’s admission that its goal is for Arizona’s Congressional delegation to support the SANE federal immigration platform that advances such an economy. Its intent is “to move beyond issues focused only on enforcement and toward solutions that address the underlying problems with our current immigration system, while respecting the historic and ongoing contributions of immigrants. The ability to obtain citizenship must be addressed by Congress with discernment and fairness, and we have great hope that our elected officials and the American people can find and support a reasonable solution — even if it means engaging in compromise.”

Still blinking?  Go ahead and read that doozy of a goal again. It’s worth remembering as you wade through the rhetoric that the deceptive premise is to engineer congressional action to gift American citizenship to those who disrespect our laws, march through our cities making demands and issuing threats, refuse to assimilate and promote Reconquista or re-conquering the Southwestern U.S. for Mexico in our public schools. Omitted are the vast array of negative impacts on our citizens in terms of the devastation of jobs lost to illegal workers, the high costs of providing benefits and combating increased crime.

Although this list consists of the usual cast of left-wingers —- Democrats, lukewarm Republicans, ethnic advocacy groups. and organizations including the Democrat Party, there are a few surprises in the form of Republican establishment types who deceptively campaign as conservatives. Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, whose job it is to enforce the law, is keeping mighty strange company these days. For him and the others of his ilk to engage in a process that suborns the interests of their constituents to those of the lobbyists and party elites whose favor they hope to curry is beyond disappointing. Also tucked in among the horde of liberals are RINOs Kirk Adams, gubernatorial candidate Scott Smith, and Lucy Mason who is currently running as a team with Vernon Parker for two vacancies on the Arizona Corporation Commission. They are all ready to sell their souls to the McCain wing of the party to advance their own political aspirations.

It’s no secret the Congressional Republicans the Coalition is diligently recruiting intend to pull a fast one on voters who oppose amnesty. The plan is to delay a vote on an amnesty bill until after the deadline passes for primary challenges across the country. That allows Republican lawmakers whose constituents adamantly oppose these provisions to wait until there are no primary challengers —- and then vote against the voters’ interest.

Don’t be conned. The “Real Arizona Coalition” stands exposed as REAL(ly) extreme Arizona liberals, regardless of which political tags they opt to use.


AZ CD7: Race boils down to race — and sex

March 7, 2014

Democrats’ unseemly spectacle

Democrat U.S. Rep. Ed Pastor‘s recent announcement that he would not seek reelection has had an unexpected ripple effect on the political landscape. As the panoply of congressional candidates increases daily, so do the oddities. Not only is the district declared a democrat stronghold, but it also is the sole purview of Hispanics.

Another faction has declared the soon-to-be-vacant seat the purview of homosexuals. Kyrsten Sinema, a self-identified bisexual, as well as a radical leftist, was elected last cycle to represent the newly crafted CD 9. That district is not as safe a stronghold for Sinema as CD 7, causing her to strongly consider abandoning her current seat for Pastor’s. She previously switched parties from the now-decertified Green party to Democrat, so likely considered a district change not such a major shift.

That brought on a flurry of opposition from a group of 15 Hispanic self-appointed ‘leaders’ warning her to stay put and not invade their territory — or words to that effect. Here are a few of them sent Sinema‘s way:

As your friends, we feel compelled to directly tell you that the recent political rumblings and rumors having you switching congressional seats to run in Congressman Pastor’s seat, troubles us and the Latino community in general, greatly. Latinos represent 30 percent of the population in Maricopa County. In some areas within congressional district 7, the percentage of Latinos is much higher. Currently, there are several Latinos and Latinas who have declared themselves candidates to replace Congressman Pastor.

The candidates’ names are immaterial for this dialogue. What is important is that they are Latinas and Latinos.”

Democrat political consultant Mario Diaz, a signer of the letter was quoted as saying, “I just want to make sure that this playing field is fair and that the rules to the game aren’t changed in mid-stream, and Kyrsten Sinema coming over to this district with a million dollars in her purse really changes the rules of the game.”

Pressured to stay put in CD 9, Sinema has decided not to seek the seat being vacated by Pastor.

Race, which the integration movement of the 1950’s sought to make irrelevant, rears its head again. These days the issue is front and centered by the minorities themselves, building alliances against one another and seeking separatism.  Kate Gallego, a newly elected member of the Phoenix City Council was brutalized by black race baiters for being a  a “white sham candidate in brown face,” “an interloping political puppet,“ and “a power-hungry white…who not is openly campaigning as white.” Former councilman Calvin Goode wrote a despicable letter to the editor against her candidacy and advocating contrived raced-based districts.

Gallego won despite hateful allegations that her ethnicity would render her incapable of representing all of the citizens of the district. Her husband, state Rep. Ruben Gallego, an “authentic Hispanic,”  is now among those announcing their candidacy in CD 7.

To insure his viability in this peculiar race, State Sen. Steve Gallardo, quickly rushed to disclosed his homosexuality — a surprise to few. Rather than being a negative, such revelations burnish his appeal in the odd world of Democrat politics and will likely ensure him a warm spot in the heart of the homosexual promoting Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic).

Such is life on the left.


Open letter to AZ’s U.S. Reps. considering amnesty vote

January 29, 2014

The New York Times reports that U.S. House Republican leadership is “offering a broad framework for overhauling the nation’s immigration laws and will call this week for a path to legal status” for illegal aliens who have systematically invaded our nation, while blatantly disregarding our laws, borders and national sovereignty.

Here is our Open Letter to AZ House GOP’ers who are poised to feed us amnesty in what has been termed “piecemeal” fashion.

 Dear Arizona Republican Members of Congress:

You may be tempted to play the old, tired “Washington Word Game” with your constituents when it comes to the so-called “Statement of Principles” on alleged “Immigration Reform.”

Here’s one word of advice: Don’t!

Don’t try to tell us that the “piecemeal Amnesty strategy” that former McCain aide Rebecca Tallent and House GOP Leadership are trying to promote isn’t really Amnesty — we’re smarter than that!

Don’t try to tell us that this is a “thoughtful approach” that will bring common-sense reform; we know better!

Don’t expect us to believe that the Obama Administration, which even Speaker Boehner has accused of ignoring the law, will somehow decide to enforce the sanctions found in any new immigration laws.

But if you should succumb to this misguided, “bite sized McFlake Open Borders” vision of the future, and still expect our support at the ballot box…Don’t!!!

Sincerely,

Arizona Conservative Voters


Achieving conservative goals requires fundamental change

January 21, 2014

On the heels of the overwhelming 1,150 – 351 vote to censure John McCain passed at the annual mandatory Maricopa County Republican meeting recently, and the similar rebuke of Lindsey Graham in South Carolina — comes this attention-piquing article on the need to change the “incentive structure” in Washington.

Matthew Boyle covers the South Carolina Tea Party Convention, zeroing in on remarks by U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) who said foundational changes to D.C. politics will be needed to achieve a conservative agenda.

“We must change the incentive structure in Washington,” he told roughly 500 attendees.

“You’ve got collusion between Republicans and Democrats in Washington, D.C.  They’re coming together and they’re making deals. You guys have probably heard of the Ryan-Murray budget deal? It does nothing to stop the $6.4 trillion that will be added to the debt over the next 10 years. Nothing. But everybody wants you to come in and vote for it,” he told the enthusiastic crowd.

Take time to read the rest of this post, which addresses the aggressive use of “outside group” vote scorecards to punish wayward Republicans. He mentions Heritage Action, which scores Jeff Flake a low 58% (just a bit above his McMentor, faltering at 43%) the Club for Growth, and the Senate Conservatives Fund.

“There’s nothing that politicians like less than these scorecards,” Bridenstine said. “Why? Because they’re being exposed.”

Although we agree with Rep. Bridenstine’s conclusions, we part company on the issue of Club for Growth, which brutalized principled conservative Arizona businessman Wil Cardon as he challenged establishment fav, then-Rep. Jeff Flake in a 2012 senate match-up. NumbersUSA also has an Immigration Report Card, rating each state’s delegation on this critical issue. We’ve got Arizona’s scores up for you. Not a single Arizona Republican congressman rates an “A.”

The Senate Conservatives Fund, a former 2012 Flake high dollar supporterdid an about-faceas it ran ads criticizing GOP lawmakers who opposed using the appropriations process to cut funding for Obamacare.  Flake was hammered in the worst possible way — by being compared to McCain(Watch the linked ad.)

Practiced liar Jeff Flake is definitely losing popularity, dragging bottom with a 30% approval rating as he emulates John McCain. In a front page assessment of Jeff Flake’s first year in the U.S. Senate, the Arizona Republic was forced to acknowledge that Arizona’s junior senator’s “moderate path over the past 12 months, has enraged his supporters and surprised his critics but also left him in the middle of an uncomfortable crossfire between the right and the left.”

Mark this as a rare occasion we can’t take issue with the daily newspaper.
