Illegal invaders supported by “activists”

June 5, 2014

Has a civilized nation ever survived by welcoming its invaders?

If you have any doubts where the AZ República’s core is, the massive photo which takes up a good portion of the front page and its accompanying caption should allay any doubts. The photo shows “migrants” (the words “illegal aliens“ never make it into print) exiting a federal bus as part of the Texas dump of the foreign invaders — these are from Central America — which Texas has been shipping to Arizona. The caption details “volunteers stepping up to offer [them] comfort.”

Are we to stand by silently as the non-military overthrow of our Constitutional government, bequeathed by America’s founders takes place? The effort is aided and abetted by the Obama administration and his cohorts in the Republican establishment.

Immediately after the 2012 election, John McCain and Jeff Flake, strutted their stuff as members of the amnesty promoting so-called bi-partisan “Gang of Eight.” Previously, and always after securing reelection, the McCain/Kyl duo pushed “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.” The Arizona 4 GOP House members, Trent Franks, Paul Gosar, Matt Salmon and David Schweikert are onboard this illegal train wreck. Franks alone didn’t sign this mealy-mouthed missive to the AZ República, chock full of poll tested bromides keeping the door open to “Immigration Reform.“ But Franks allowed illegals and their supporters to camp out in his front yard and joined them in prayer (video). McCain has vowed to keep fighting for amnesty as long as he is “alive and breathing.

Polishing up her legacy as she readies to leave her ninth floor office, Gov. Jan Brewer has registered her “deep concern” about the dumping of  women, children and unaccompanied juveniles in this letter to Obama. They have been abandoned by DHS at Arizona bus stations without food, water or basic necessities, she writes.

The governor need not fear for their well-being. Large numbers of ‘community activists’ have been showing up at the Phoenix bus station daily, cheering and greeting the illegals. They distribute food, bottles of water, clothing, shoes, and items such as toothbrushes, mouthwash, aspirin, deodorant and other personal supplies.

The question to ask is who are the actual victims — those who willingly subject themselves and their young children to extreme summer temperatures as they invade our sovereign nation, or us —- the citizens who are being overrun by a constant and costly flood of humanity. The newspaper’s recurring barrage of photos and lengthy tales of woe vary little.  The audacity of the illegals is what should receive coverage.

Yesterday illegals and their advocates gathered at U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon’s local office to protest —- what else? They want action on amnesty, and they want it now!

The Primary Election is right around the corner.  Early voting begins July 31. Election Day is August 26. Tell these representatives what you think. After they win reelection, it will be too late.


How America treats illegal aliens vs. Veterans

May 25, 2014

Memorial Day reading

Longtime readers of Seeing Red AZ are familiar with some of our favorite nationally syndicated columnists —- Michelle Malkin, Thomas Sowell, Ann Coulter and Victor Davis Hanson among them. Today, in honor of Memorial Day, we feature Malkin’s recent column “How America Treats Illegal Aliens vs. Veterans.”

Malkin points out, “In Arizona, illegal aliens incurred health care costs totaling an estimated $700 million in 2009. In Phoenix, at least 40 veterans died waiting for VA hospitals and clinics to treat them, while government officials created secret waiting lists to cook the books and deceive the public about deadly treatment delays.”

These wise words conclude her column, “America: medical and welfare welcome mat to the rest of the world, while leaving its best and bravest veterans to languish in hospital lounges, die waiting for appointments, and compete for jobs and educational opportunities against illegal border-crossers, document fakers, visa violators and deportation evaders. Shame on us.”

Read it in full here.

Knowledge is power —- a commodity that is increasingly in short supply as we lose our grasp on our Constitutionally based Representative Republic. Our elected representatives appear to have forgotten the American citizens who supported them and voted them into office. They obviously need to be reminded. Give them a call. Since we pay their salaries, they should be happy to hear from us.


Amnesty: King Obama poised to bypass Congress

May 23, 2014

More Executive Order tyranny

Democrat Senators Harry Reid (NV) and Chuck Schumer (NY) are issuing new threats regarding Barack Obama acting unilaterally on halting deportations of illegal aliens if the House doesn’t move quickly on immigration reform.

Regarding himself as a monarch rather than an American president, Obama has made bypassing Congress via the issuance of executive orders, a hallmark of his regime. 

Breitbart News reports that the issue for Reid and other Democrats is timing. Senate Democrats believe there is a narrow window of about six weeks this summer –— from mid-June to the end of July –— for the GOP-led House to move immigration bills, and they want the focus during that period to be on Republican lawmakers, not the Obama administration.

Schumer and Jeff Flake’s amnesty-promoting, leftist buddy, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (IL), have declared that this year is the last chance to pass sweeping amnesty legislation. In pressing Congress to pass the Senate’s amnesty bill, Schumer shows his complete disregard for U.S. citizens. The Congressional Budget Office issued a report concluding such a move would lower wages of American workers.  In 2011, Seeing Red AZ wrote that the radical Gutierrez advocated for pushing amnesty via Executive Order. Nothing has changed except the level of intensity is now accompanied by threats.

Luis Gutierrez has previously bragged that he “drafted amnesty language for the White House.”

In a wild display of hypocrisy, the Dems want to delay the actual implementation of their amnesty package until Obama leaves office in 2017, even as they  propose giving amnesty to all illegals who arrived in the U.S. prior to 2014.

“We’ve waited 329 days, we’re willing to wait another six weeks,” Reid warned Thursday, referring to the number of days that have passed since the Senate passed a wide-ranging amnesty bill. “But at the end of six weeks, if something hasn’t been done, then there’s gonna have to be a move made. And it’s too bad we have to do that, because we all know things can be done administratively, but it’s better to change the law.”

Here Obama vows to use his “pen and phone” to bypass Congress:

But trusting the AZ 4 on amnesty is also folly. This duplicitous double-talk is what we recently got from three of the four.  The other one allowed illegal invaders and their supporters to camp out overnight in the front yard of his family home. He joined them in prayer —- neglecting  the opportunity to talk to them about the Rule of Law and the Constitutional rights of a sovereign nation.


Matt Salmon: When “Fish becomes Fowl….”

May 22, 2014

U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon disappoints in new role as McMachine’s mouthpiece

Elected to the U.S. House in 1994, as part of the first GOP majority in forty years, Rep. Matt Salmon seemed to understand the danger of open borders and amnesty. 

To his credit, at the time, he voted against the sundry legislative initiatives that sought to blur the borders between the United States and Mexico.

He voluntarily term-limited himself, and left Congress after six years of service — a practice his successor, the perpetually smirking and self photographing Jeff Flake pledged to observe —-  only to arrogantly joke at the end of six years, “I lied.”

Now, Flake-like reversals stain the Salmon record in Matt’s second “tour of duty” in the House. He and fellow Arizona Congressmen Paul Gosar and David Schweikert penned a mealy-mouthed missive to The Arizona Republic, chock full of poll tested bromides while keeping the door open to “Immigration Reform” —- more correctly known as amnesty.

And most recently, Salmon has become a McCain Machine Mouthpiece, calling for incumbent Attorney General Tom Horne to withdraw from the AG’s race this year, so that the hand-picked McMachine candidate —  Mark Brnovich can advance, and in turn advance the establishment‘s open borders agenda.

Rep. Salmon would do well to remember a couple of things. First, that the McMachine of McCain, Kyl and Flake —- all opposed his return to the House by backing Kirk Adams in the 2012 GOP Primary; and second, the story Matt has often shared on the stump concerning his days at Mesa High.

Salmon recounts that time as if he is nominating himself for a teenage version of “Profiles In Courage.” He says that he drew the ire of his high school sweetheart’s father by backing Ronald Reagan over President Gerald Ford in 1976, but did so because Gov. Reagan was the true conservative in the race.

Attorney General Tom Horne’s distinguished public service record is clearly conservative, and decidedly anti-amnesty. The hard fact is, those are the actual issues that render Horne unpalatable to the local leftwing media and the establishment elites.

For Salmon to transmogrify into a parrot and repeat the McMachine talking points warrants real concern, and it is he who should be concerned. After all, it is most confusing and unappealing when a Salmon starts to “flounder.”


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.
