Cuccinelli-led SCF holds Republicans accountable

December 14, 2014

Conservative group runs ads against amnesty schemers who run under GOP banner

Ken Cuccinelli, the former Attorney General of Virginia, is a bright light on the conservative horizon. He is also the new president of Senate Conservatives Fund, (SCF) the Number One conservative PAC in America.

The group pulls no punches, going after elected Republican imposters. who often collude with Democrats to the detriment of our country. We are on to the deceptively acclaimed term “bi-partisanship” the Dems and RINOs cheer, understanding all too well that we are being sold out —- before the new Republican Senate and House majorities take their oaths in January.

This is what SCF had to say about Arizona Senators Jeff Flake (whom it previously supported) and John McCain. When clicking on the link to McCain, pay particular attention to the descriptive paragraph above the video showing him dispensing his arrogant rudeness toward another senator. Note that McCain’s political designation is referred to as (RINO-Arizona)

On Friday the Senate Conservatives Action (SCA), the super PAC arm of the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF), released three new radio ads holding GOP House leaders accountable for voting to fund Barack Obama’s unlawful executive amnesty. These ads will air for one week in the home districts of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA). Click on each link to hear the powerful ads.

Over the past week, freedom-loving Americans from across the country pledged to donate over $117,000 to hold these leaders accountable if they voted to fund the president’s amnesty. The three radio ads carry out those pledges.

SCF President Ken Cuccinelli made the following statement:

“Americans asked Republican leaders to defund the president’s unlawful amnesty and pledged to run ads against them if they didn’t. Unfortunately, these leaders didn’t listen so now the grassroots are taking action to hold them accountable. These ads tell their voters what they’ve done and urge them to keep their promises.”

The bold actions of this organization deserve our support.


What’s the point of electing Republicans when the GOP majority caves?

December 8, 2014

It’s a rare occasion when we direct our readers straight to another blog, but this Breitbart ExclusiveHouse GOP Leaders Trick 216 House Republicans Into Accidentally Supporting Obama’s Executive Amnesty,” is deserving of such a distinction.

Seeing Red AZ takes exception with the notion they were tricked.  For them to vote on the revised H.R. 5759 without reading it doesn’t qualify as trickery. There are two choices, collusion or ignorance. Take your pick.

From Breitbart: ‘In a lengthy interview on Friday afternoon, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) exposed how House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise strengthened President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty with procedural trickery former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber would envy—and they did it all in the name of pushing a bill that they told Republicans would block Obama’s executive amnesty. 

What’s more is that a series of interviews and recent developments indicate that Boehner’s gambit here is placing several of his top lieutenants—including at least two committee chairmen—at political risk of serious primary challenges just a few months after newly elected Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) beat now former House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) in a Republican primary.

Gohmert said most members had no idea what they were actually voting for when 219 members—216 of which were Republicans—approved a measure, H.R. 5759, first put forward by Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), but subsequently dramatically altered by leadership officials in the Rules Committee process.”

Illegal Immigration: Dick Morris admits JD Hayworth was “right all along”

December 6, 2014

Morris says he’s come around to Hayworth’s way of thinking

Appearing on America’s Forum, politico, columnist and best-selling author Dick Morris acknowledged what Arizona conservatives have known for years: Former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) now host of Newsmax TV America’s Forum “had it right all along,” on the subject of illegal immigration.

This informative clip features Miranda Khan, J.D. Hayworth and Dick Morris.

Morris’ quote:

 “For about the last hundred years J.D. has been warning about the immigration issue, and he’s been saying that this is going to be the central issue of our debate…and that it ultimately will be what drives downscale Democrats away from the Democratic Party when they realize that it’s causing unemployment and wage stagnation.  I didn’t necessarily buy his point of view. I agreed with his overall view on immigration, but not about its centrality. And now it’s becoming increasingly clear that he’s exactly right and he’s been right for many, many years. This is the guy who had it right all along.”

Watch the entire segment. The discussion centers on Obama’s executive order granting amnesty to millions of foreign nationals, the negative economic impact on our citizen labor force,  and the options congressional Republicans are considering to address this unconstitutional power grab.


TX, OK AGs sue Obama over amnesty executive order

December 2, 2014

Any chance AZ’s incoming AG Mark Brnovich will hop onboard this righteous effort?

Texas governor-elect Greg Abbott is making good on his vow to take legal action against Barack Obama, who he says “crossed a serious legal line” with his recent amnesty executive order. As Texas’ attorney general, Abbott has joined with neighboring Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt in suing the Obama administration over this unlawful power grab (video).

“The President’s action violates his constitutional duty to faithfully enforce immigration laws that were duly enacted by Congress, circumvents the will of the American people and is an affront to the families and individuals who follow our laws to legally immigrate to the United States,” Abbott said in this statement, citing violations to the “Take Care Clause” of the Constitution as well as the Administrative Procedure Act. “The State of Texas will assert a legal action against President Obama’s unconstitutional abuse of power.”

Abbott said he expects to finalize his decision in the next two weeks, during which time he will speak with other attorneys general and state officials. 

In Oklahoma, Attorney General Pruitt said, “We believe that not only the state of Oklahoma, but states across the country have, in fact, been injured as a result of the president’s action. As the impact of the order becomes clear, states will be able to determine its monetary effects on areas such as education, health-care, and public safety among others.” Pruitt called Obama’s actions ‘brazenly political.’ 

AG Greg Abbott made his case, saying, “President Obama has circumvented Congress and deliberately bypassed the will of the American people, eroding the very foundation of our nation’s Constitution and bestowing a legacy of lawlessness. Texans have witnessed firsthand the costs and consequences caused by President Obama’s dictatorial immigration policy. I am prepared to immediately challenge President Obama in court, securing our state’s sovereignty and guaranteeing the rule of law as it is intended under the Constitution.

These two Republican attorneys general evidence strong determination as they boldly stand for the rule of law and the Constitution of the United States. They should have no trouble assembling a coalition of others to follow their lead in filing suit to overturn this flagrant amnesty action, regally imposed by executive order, while illegitimately snubbing congress.


GOP Senate v. Obama’s liberal judicial appointments

November 30, 2014
US_Supreme_Court_2010

The U.S. Supreme Court in 2010. Top row: (left to right): Associate Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, Samuel Alito, and Elena Kagan. Bottom row: Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia, Chief Justice John Roberts, Anthony Kennedy, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Circuit Courts awash with radical leftwing ideologues

The recent report that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had a heart stent implanted to clear a blocked artery during the court’s current session is more than just an item of passing interest. The 9-member court hears its next round of oral arguments on Monday.

The 81-year-old Ginsburg, a radical liberal (video) who has suffered multiple and serious health problems, is emblematic of the aging High Court bench. Ginsburg has yet to top the longevity of Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., who was on the court from 1902 to 1932 and was 90 when he finally retired, but she’s within spitting distance of the record.

Her age and ill-health point to a serious situation as Barack Obama still has two years to stack the Supreme Court. He has been resolutely at work doing so throughout his tenure with the 13 federal circuit courts, which handle upward of 60,000 cases a year —- compared to the Supreme Court’s fewer than 100 cases. He has diligently created Democrat majorities on the courts that function as mini-supreme courts since they establish precedent on previously unaddressed issues in their circuits, and have the last word in nearly all of the cases that come before them. Not only has Obama appointed leftist ideologues, but young lawyers who will serve for many years. Currently, he has seven circuit vacancies to fill.

Now with Republicans in control of the Senate for the first time since Barack Obama took office, he should find it harder to appoint left-wing lawyers to judgeships. Since he took office in 2009, the number of circuit courts with Democrat majorities has increased from one to nine. Whether he compromises on some of his nominees, including any to the Supreme Court, may depend on the willingness of the new Republican majority to engage the president on judicial philosophy.

Terry Eastland, an executive editor at The Weekly Standard has written a fact-filled two-page review of the subject titled, Obama’s Makeover of the Judiciary. This is an important article that should not be missed. Eastland addresses the issue of the all-important willingness of the new GOP majority Senate to slow the march of liberal judges onto the courts.

The Heritage Foundation provides an overview of the cases on the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2014-2015 docket. The Court’s argument calendar can be accessed here on the Supreme Court’s website.


Taxpayers on the hook for $2 trillion+ funding Obama’s amnesty

November 28, 2014

The Heritage Foundation’s expert on welfare and entitlement spending, Robert Rector, reports that illegal aliens who receive amnesty and work permits through Barack Obama’s executive actions will draw $2 trillion over their lifetimes in taxpayer-funded government services. Rector  based the figure on estimates that 4 million* illegal aliens will benefit from the actions and will live an average of 50 years.

“The net cost —- which is total benefits minus total benefits paid in —- of the amnesty recipients I estimate will be around $2 trillion over the course of their lifetime,* Rector told Breitbart News. “What [Obama] is doing is he is putting these 4 million people —- who on average have a 10th grade education —- into the Social Security and Medicare programs.”

In May 2013, Rector estimated the costs of the John McCain and Jeff Flake-led Gang of Eight’s 844-page amnesty bill, S. 744  to be $6.3 trillion. He applied that methodology to Obama’s executive amnesty. Rector looked at how much the average beneficiary would earn in wages over their lifetimes and then calculated how much they would draw in taxpayer benefits.

“Given their expected earnings, from someone who has a 10th grade education, they will draw about three dollars worth of benefits out of those programs over their lifetimes for every dollar they put into them. But the overall cost in outlays will be around a trillion dollars for those programs alone,” Rector said. “The bottom line to understand this is you are taking millions of people with a 10th grade education and giving them access to the largest entitlement and welfare system in the globe.”

Carrying the deceptive title, “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act,” S.744, clearly an amnesty bill, was approved in the Senate June 27, 2013 by a vote of 68 to 32, with the disappointing support of 14 Republicans. The Republican-led House did not pass the amnesty proposal. Check out the actual roll call vote to see how the individual senators “represented” their constituents.

* Editor’s note: Robert Rector uses 4 million illegal aliens in his cost analysis. Other reports put the number well in excess of 5 million, which would up the ante on the $2 trillion figure. Here on the White House website, the figure is acknowledged as 11 million as Obama sets forth the unenforceable provisions of his unilaterally imposed scheme which bypasses congress as he spits in the eye of the U.S. Constitution.

 


Credibility problems with lawyers defending Obama’s overreach

November 25, 2014

April Fool’s Day is still months away, but the gags keep coming

The U.S. Department of Justice recently released a letter* citing 10 legal academics at colleges across the country defending Barack Obama’s imperial executive action —- bypassing congress —- which grants amnesty to millions of foreign nationals who have illegally entered the United States.

But while the DOJ touts these professors’ prominence, their neutrality is certainly questionable.

In the letter, the legal scholars say they don’t always see eye-to-eye on presidential power and immigration policy, but that they “are all of the view that these actions are lawful.”

Of the 10 letter signers, seven are registered Democrats. Two live in states that don’t release party affiliation, but they both donate exclusively to Democrat candidates. The lone Republican, Eric Posner, is also an exclusive Democrat donor and has repeatedly written that Obama can literally “do whatever he wants” when it comes to executive authority.

Three of the lawyers work at the University of Chicago, where Obama taught constitutional law.

Another, Lee Bollinger, is the president of Columbia University, where Obama did his undergrad work. Bollinger is also directly involved in the effort to make Columbia the site of Obama’s presidential library.

Duke University professor Walter Dellinger, another who signed the letter, served in the Clinton administration and has an ongoing friendship with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, who was nominated by Obama.

Finally, there’s Laurence Tribe, a mentor to Obama at Harvard Law School, who called him “the best student I ever had and the most exciting research assistant.” He also campaigned for Obama.

* The DOJ letter is missing from its website.
