“I knew I was being fed a line of BS when…”

Arizona República’s latest con 

E.J. Montini is a left-wing columnist often appropriately residing on the left side of the front of the Valley Section in the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic). His pieces tend toward sappiness, but always slinging the radical party line of his agendized employer and often in unison with his cohort columnist Laurie Roberts, illusory illustrator Steve Benson, open-borders editorialists and the crew of pro-amnesty hacks posing as journalists at the newspaper. Amid the axing of long timers and the staff cutbacks, those looking retirement squarely in the eye are doing their level best to carry the República’s water until the last light is switched off.

In Sunday’s edition, the desperation is both inane and palpable. Online Montini’s column is titled, “I knew Arizona was home when…”

It is accompanied by this odd EDITOR’S NOTE: 

Many of us are transplants from other places. We might live here, but someplace else is home. That is, until that moment when our copper-colored state becomes part of our identity. We’re launching a new A-section page in The Republic at the end of March that will feature stories that are uplifting, local, inspiring and empowering. And we need your help. Send us your moments, 300-word essays on the topic “I knew Arizona was home when …

It might’ve been when your first child was born. When you voted for local elections for the first time. When a spectacular sunset made you stop in your tracks. We want to know what it was for you. E-mail your 300 words and a photo of yourself, if you’d like.”

The unnamed editor promises to “feature some of the best essays on our upcoming good-news page” in the hardcopy edition of the newspaper, as well as online and on its social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter.

Initially the scheme sounds suspiciously as though the editorial board is eliciting the daily’s few remaining readers to do the work paid staff previously handled — possibly signaling another round of layoffs? Then reality hits. This topic reeks of a setup ‘enlightenment piece’ featuring ‘Aha! Moments’ to instill in readers the idea that they have a lot in common with illegal aliens.

“Awesome!” declares the editor’s imaginary deadhead. “You’re from Chihuahua? I’m from Pittsburgh!  And look, we both have children born in Phoenix and we’re voting here in Arizona’s elections for the first time!”

Get it?  Or should we say, “Comprende?”


Debunking the DREAMer myth

February 15, 2014

Ann Coulter has done it again.

Asking the question, “Did I move? Coulter addresses the lunacy driving the House Republicans’ “Standards for Immigration Reform,” and zones in on what she correctly describes as “this fat, honking nonsense: One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents.”

Ann Coulter’s commentary is stunning in its wisdom. After you read this column, consider sending the link to your family and friends. It’s guaranteed to make them think and view the inane arguments for legalizing illegals through a clearer lens. She also uses the more accurate figure of 30 million rather than the 10-11 million glibly tossed around for the past decade by amnesty proponents.

Did I move? is posted in the conservative publication Human Events, where Ann Coulter serves as legal correspondent.

Treat yourself to her stellar columns, on a wide range of topics, which are archived here.

These two are particular favorites relating to the subject of illegal immigration:

What? Obama places partisan calculations above duty

February 11, 2014

Today we bring you an interesting bit of amnesty related information you are unlikely to read on the pages of the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic). The Daily Caller carries the facts and substantiating links.

Barack Obama’s 2012 unilateral legalization of 500,000 young illegals helped him win the 2012 election — at the cost of splitting 500,000 innocent, law-abiding American families for months on end, according to a New York Times article.

The ruthless political calculation was buried deep in the low-key article, which was published on page 20 of the local “New York edition” of the national newspaper. Obama directed officials to award work permits to the illegal immigrants, preventing them from preparing green cards for Americans’ foreign-born spouses and children.

Page Two of the report contains the most shocking of the revelations.  Make sure you read the entire Daily Caller piece, “Obama split 500,000 American families to legalize illegals before 2012 election,” by Neil Munro.

Arizonans have learned not to expect much from the state’s newspaper of record. Actual news in the anorexic, agenda driven, daily is the exception. As an example, the Republic Media Research Department emailed the following retch-inducing message Monday afternoon:

“In order to better tailor our products to your information needs, we’d like to ask a few questions about your cooking and dining habits. The survey will take approximately 6-8 minutes to complete. As a thank you for your time, you can enter to win a $50 Visa Gift Card at the end of the survey.

Thank you in advance for your participation. Your insights and feedback are extremely valuable to us!”

The newspaper’s own words betray the vacuous organ it has become, as it insults its few remaining readers.

GOP amnesty suicide:Dr. Sowell’s refreshing honesty

February 8, 2014

Does “trustworthiness” actually exist in DC?

There’s no denying the brilliant columnist Thomas Sowell has a way with words.  He proves it once again with this cogent commentary, Republicans to the Rescue?”

His take on the issue of children here “through no fault of their own,” those “living in the shadows,” and “comprehensive immigration reform,” in the most politically incorrect but completely honest terms, is potent.

Do yourself a favor and read the unvarnished truth as only Dr. Sowell can deliver it.

In light of Speaker John Boehner’s recent abrupt switch on pushing amnesty legislation, suddenly declaring he now has reservations regarding Obama’s trustworthiness, it’s refreshing to realize that conservatives also have reservations — about Boehner and his band of GOP amnesty-devotees  — who are poised to increase the ranks of the Democrat Party as they gut and neuter the Republican Party,  the very brand they ran under. The only difference now is that Boehner and his cohorts are hearing from skittish Republican House members who will be standing for midterm elections this year. Watch for this amnesty disaster to return within short order after the ballots are counted

Amnesty: DNC Chair admits it’s all about voting

February 3, 2014

On Sunday’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” DNC vice chair Donna Brazile let the cat out of the amnesty bag with her unequivocal declaration that the latest “reform” incarnation — minus citizenship — is not enough.

Brazile said: “I don’t think you can create two classes of citizens in this society, one with legal status and the right to vote, and one without.”  (View video at 13:39).

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.

On Stephanopoulos’ Sunday show, panelist Bill Kristol echoed Limbaugh’s sentiment referring to the Senate immigration bill as “crazy politics.” Exhibiting a knack for the fine art of understatement, Kristol said Republicans will be “in better shape in 2015″ without it.

GOP poised to snatch defeat from jaws of victory

January 30, 2014

“We don’t have documents, but we have dignity and we deserve respect.”

This video showing the contemptible disruption of Texas Congressman Pete Olson’s Townhall meeting with constituents last fall exemplifies the tactics used by illegals who claim they have rights and are deserving of respect. Throughout the boorish commotion they issued threats while shutting down Republican Congressman Olson‘s ability to speak.

Although this occurred several months ago, it is instructive in the context of the current push for amnesty to legalize our country’s illegal invaders by the U.S. House GOP.

These demanding and intimidating illegals are the so-called DREAMers that U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, Speaker John Boehner and the Republican establishment are prepared to honor with the gift of U.S. citizenshipalong with their family members. Though the number 11 million has been continually used the past decade, there are likely upward of 30 million who will be recipients of such reckless and destructive generosity.

An invitation to fraud, the DREAM Act is far more expansive than presented. Anyone up to the age of 35 who claims they were brought here before age 16 can apply for amnesty. Since illegal aliens are, as the media likes to call them — “undocumented” — there is no way of verifying their claims. They could have arrived as adults last week. In fact, illegal aliens do not need to attend college or join the military to receive legal status, they simply need to declare that they intend to do so within the next six years. In order to receive legal status, they don’t need to show they are of “good moral character” and can actually be convicted criminals. But such facts don’t impede their abilities to compete with Americans for limited jobs, and attend public colleges with in-state tuition, thanks to our so-called representatives who are eager to provide them legal status, with  citizenship the next bit of thepiecemealscheme.

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter sums up the amnesty issue and its link to the demise of the Republican Party in this profound sentence found in her latest first-rate, fact-filled commentaryGOP crafts plan to wreck the country, lose voters.”  Coulter accurately states, “It’s not their position on amnesty that [generational] immigrants don’t like; it’s Republicans’ support for small government, gun rights, patriotism, the Constitution and capitalism.” 

Given Barack Obama’s abysmal approval ratings, the idea of Republicans conspiring to increase the numbers of Democrats in advance of the midterm elections is suicidal. GOP U.S. Representatives are snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Heritage has a simplified call alert to oppose congressional action leading to amnesty. Simply plug in your zip code.  Do it for your family.  Do it for America. Do it now. There won’t be a second chance.

Target credit card fraud leads to….Mexico

January 23, 2014

Linda Valdez at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) newsosaur spends a large portion of her time insistently lecturing the newspaper’s continually dwindling readership that Arizona’s economic future is linked to Mexico.

It turns out she’s partially correct. Not only is Arizona suffering from the high toll of services and benefits illegal aliens in our state receive as they mercilessly sap our taxpaying citizens (video link), but American retailers and consumers across the country are taking it in the slats as well.

Texas police have arrested two Mexican nationals at the border who used account information stolen during the pre-Christmas Target cyber attack to buy thousands of dollars worth of merchandise. Mary Carmen Garcia, 27, and Daniel Guardiola Dominguez, 28, both of Monterrey, Mexico, used falsified cards containing stolen account information to purchase numerous items at national retailers in the area including Best Buy, Wal-Mart and Toys R Us.  Among their purchases were a number of high-end electronics which added up to tens of thousands of dollars.  

When the pair was arrested, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers discovered close to 100 fake credit cards in their possession.

A spokeswoman for the Minneapolis-based Target stores acknowledged last week that the retail giant has stopped more than a dozen operations that sought to scam security breach victims by way of email, phone calls and text messages.

Though federal officials claimed there currently was no connection between the arrests and the retailer’s credit card data theft, McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez said, “They’re obviously selling the data sets by region.”  He said investigators suspect Garcia and Guardiola were singling out Sundays for their shopping sprees hoping that the banks would not be as quick to detect the fraud.

The Target security breach is believed to have involved 40 million credit and debit card accounts and the personal information of an estimated 70 – 110 million customers. Other retailers ranging from upscale Neiman Marcus to J.C. Penney were victims of the cyber attackers.
