ISIS terrorists, drug cartels use same operational plan

August 21, 2014

Risks of doing nothing are too great as terrorists present massive global and US threat

U.S. Rep. Ted Poe, a Texas congressman, former felony prosecutor and judge was a guest on Newmax TV’s America’s Forum Wednesday. Poe, a member of the House Judiciary Committee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security discussed the macabre beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIS terrorists and the connection between these depraved fanatics and Mexican drug cartels. Watch the interview with host J.D. Hayworth here.

Poe drew a disturbing connection between the Mexican drug cartels invading our Southern border and terrorist organizations such as ISIS, acknowledging the drug cartels use the same operational plan as terrorist groups do.

“They kill their opponents, they behead their opponents, they brag about it and they have operational control of many portions of the southern border of the United States.  Mexico doesn’t.  The United States doesn’t.  Otherwise they wouldn’t be crossing daily with their drugs.  They’re as vicious as some of these other terrorist organizations.  We need to recognize that this is an organized international crime group that is a threat to the world. We have to deal with them as such,” Rep. Poe said.

In May 2011 we posted Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns, warning of the increasing dangers posed to America and her citizens by terrorists. It includes a news photo showing Hispanic leaders meeting with then-PLO leader Yasser Arafat in Beirut Lebanon in 1980, as an image of the ruthless Sharia dictator Ayatollah Khomeini watches over the meeting.

At the time, ABC 10 News in San Diego filed this alarming televised report detailing that “Hezbolah has operated in South America for decades and then Central America, along with their sometime rival/ sometime ally Hamas. Now, the group is blending into Shi’a Muslim communities throughout Mexico. Other pockets along the U.S.-Mexico border region remain largely unidentified as U.S. intelligence agencies are focused on the drug trade.”

We live in a post-9/11 world. Americans can no longer afford complacency. The federal government (FEMA) has a little-advertised website Ready.gov that warns Americans of risks and the need to be prepared in cases of disasters. This page and its links specifically address terrorism.


Arkansas Dem uses McCain to aid reelection bid

August 10, 2014

Republicans chances of recapturing the U.S. Senate increase

When a far left Democrat such as Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor uses his campaign advertising to offer quotes from John McCain to distinguish himself from U.S. Rep Tom Cotton, his conservative Republican opponent, it’s clear there is a trouble in Liberalville.

Pryor ‘s latest ad features McCain’s quote that “anyone who calls it amnesty is not being intellectually honest,” fires back at a recent Cotton campaign ad, saying Pryor “voted for amnesty and citizenship for illegals.”

“Mark Pryor voted the same way as John McCain and many other Republican senators,” Pryor’s ad defends. “Secure the border first.”

Very McCainesque, indeed.

For border state Arizonans, the unanswered question has always been, “First before what?” The illegal invasion of our sovereign nation looms as a major 2014 campaign issue even in places as far removed from the border as Arkansas —- a state that is rapidly trending red.

How telling is it that Pryor, the sole remaining Dem in the state’s congressional delegation resorts to bragging of his alignment with McCain on such a key issue in this squeaker of a race?

U.S. Rep. Cotton is a genuinely impressive. He holds undergrad and law degrees from Harvard, did a stint at the Claremont Graduate University —- including a Publius fellowship in conservative political thought at the Claremont Institute —- completed a federal clerkship, and served two tours of combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Cotton left the Army with the rank of captain and numerous medals including a Bronze Star.

Real Clear Politics provides the most recent polling, Scroll down to see the latest encouraging numbers in what is emerging as a very winnable race. Cotton, 37, an eloquent conservative spokesman is ahead in most polls.

Human Events does the math, writing, “Today, there are 45 Republican Senators and the GOP needs a net gain of six seats to win control of the 114th Congress in January 2015. But winning a bare majority in 2014 is not enough. Republicans need to pick up enough seats in 2014 to ensure they have 51 or more Senators after the 2016 election where Republicans will defend potentially vulnerable Senate seats won in the GOP landslide year of 2010.

If Republicans win six seats they will control the House and Senate for two years but still face the Obama veto for both years. But if they capture the nine seats needed to be comfortable that GOP control of congress would continue in 2017 and 2018 then, if they are joined by a Republican President after the 2016 election, they can begin undoing much of the damage of the past eight years and enact the Ryan budget plan that begins the U-turn away from our present path to socialism. That is winning.”

Sure thing!


Border chaos Number One issue with Americans

August 2, 2014

One in six say immigration top U.S. problem

 A snapshot of what is driving elections across the United States is contained in the upward spiraling of concern over the illegal invasion. The increasing alarm is obvious in responses to the recent Gallup poll question posed to over a thousand adults, “What do you think is the most important problem facing this country today?

In January of this year, just 3 percent of respondents answered “immigration or illegal aliens.”  That number rose to 5 percent in June.  Just one month later the same questioned was asked.  In July fully 17 percent of Americans expressed their concerns —- with this single topic outstripping all others, including the economy, jobs, healthcare, education, or the federal budget and deficit.

According to Pew, just 28 percent of Americans approve of the way Barack Obama is handling the border. Double that number —-  56 percent —- disapprove.

Congressional Job Approval is even more abysmal. Scroll down to Real Clear Politics’ aggregated polling data to see the shockingly low scores across the board. The RCP average showed a 12.3 approval rating with 77.3 disapproving of the job congress is doing.

Virginia’s Eric Cantor, the unceremoniously ousted GOP House Majority Leader is emblematic of the ire with which the American people view their congressional representatives. After being trounced by Dave Brat, an unknown economics professor in the June 10 Republican primary, he has taken an early leave, quitting Friday and taking his bruised ego with him.

In Arizona, our GOP AZ 4 are running with no worries and no primary opponents, save for Trent Franks’ pesky challenger Clair Van Steenwyk. Incumbency brings many perks, chief among them the ability to raise significant campaign cash on the banks of the Potomac. 

Now they’re all home for a month during which they’ll whine about the inability to get immigration issues moving. Ask them the hard questions and don’t be cajoled by their practiced spew, heavy on “humanitarian” concerns. The humanitarian concerns they need to focus on are those involving the American citizens they are supposed to represent —- many underemployed or out of work, and still paying their salaries and providing their enviable benefits. 

This CBS report dated Oct. 2013 provides information on congressional  salaries and benefits, for working less than one-third of the year. The report is guaranteed to blow the top off your head. According to calculations, members of the House of Representatives will make approximately $1,539.82 per day or, given an eight-hour work day, roughly $192.47 per hour.

Just about what you bring home, right?


40 years ago today: U.S. Senator prophetically warned America

July 19, 2014

Conservative writer Susan Harris has written a masterful and must read article about the unheeded warning of John Porter East, a professor of political science and later an elected Senator representing North Carolina from 1981-1986  Make time for this dose of Sen. East‘s wisdom as he uncovered the bastions of liberalism that American universities had become and the aggressive means used to shut down conservative thought.

H/T D.C. Clothesline


America speaks: illegal immigration top problem

July 18, 2014

Americans citing illegal immigration as the top problem surges to 17% this month, up from 5% just a month ago

Those who repeatedly refer to the invasion of the United States as a “humanitarian crisis,” need to rethink their misplaced compassion and place it in context with the facts.

Laura Ingraham got it right when she defined this as “an invasion facilitated by our own government”  —- which we refer to as the “Obama regime.”

Our cultures are world’s apart from Mexico, Central and South America. As an example, on Thursday the South American country of Bolivia passed legislation allowing 10-year-olds to be able to work, and sets 12 as the minimum age for a child to work under contract. 

It’s estimated that 1 million Bolivian children work regularly, accounting for 15 percent of the workforce. They toil in factories, on farms and as street vendors, coca leaf pickers and porters at markets. One in three don’t attend school. Bolivia’s previous labor code permitted no exceptions to a minimum age of 14. The new measure was approved by Bolivia’s leftist President Evo Morales, a former trade union activist.

Americans are finally beginning to take notice of the long-lasting and negative impact of the influx of uneducated, impoverished and often diseased populations. The most recent Gallup poll identifies the issue this way: “With thousands of undocumented immigrant minors crossing the nation’s southern border in recent months, the percentage of Americans citing immigration as the top problem has surged to 17% this month, up from 5% in June, and the highest seen since 2006. As a result, immigration now virtually ties “dissatisfaction with government,” at 16%, as the primary issue Americans think of when asked to name the country’s top problem.”

Gallup, hardly considered a conservative leaning pollster, still acknowledges that when respondents were asked to say which party can better handle the issue, “the results are relatively positive for the Republicans.” This is similar to the Republicans’ positioning on this question in 2010, shortly before voters gave the GOP a sweeping victory in the midterm House elections. Republicans were also practically tied with Democrats in 1994 and 2002 —- both years when the GOP fared well in the midterms, Gallup concludes.

Conservative Dave Brat’s stunning 56 – 44 percent victory over amnesty-pushing House Majority Leader Eric Cantor should signal continuing good news in the upcoming congressional elections. Voters must vigilantly discern that those with an “R” after their name are the real deal.

Arizona conservatives, who have Republicrat agents of deception John McCain and Jeff Flake as U.S. Senators, can attest to the fact that the con is turned to high pitch during campaign season, only to have the amnesty proponents revert to their long-held open borders agenda, and collude with Democrats immediately after the ballots are counted.

 


Eric Cantor’s greater purpose: Forces prioritizing constituents over illegals

July 5, 2014

Cantor’s “term limit” halts the amnesty con

David Brat’s stunning triumph over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is analyzed in this New York magazine article by Jonathan Chait.  It carries the catchy title, “Killer of Immigration Reform Identified As David Brat.”

Congressional shenanigans are laid bare as it is noted that a majority of Republicans were poised to give a private go-ahead to bring an amnesty bill to the floor. As trickery goes, this was blockbuster quality. Most of them would then righteously vote against such a measure, allowing Democrats to supply the votes necessary for passage —- thereby insulating themselves against any culpability from enraged constituents.

After last month’s upset in the Virginia congressional primary election, those “hope-yes-vote-no Republicans” are too fearful to proceed with such a ruse —- worried that conservative David Brat’s surprise victory may turn out to be more consequential than anybody thought at the time

An economics professor, new U.S. Rep. Brat is ideally positioned to address a key issue of his campaign: the nation’s massive deficit. But even more, his triumphal political coup over a leading establishment insider has caused the Washington elites to take notice of us. 

Yes, we are out here. We pay attention. We pay your salary. We are beyond angry at being conned on the invasion of our nation. We vote.


McCain condones sleazy tactics in Miss. Senate runoff

July 2, 2014

McCain approves fishy scheme of Republicrats encouraging Dems to upend GOP primaries

One week after traveling to Mississippi to aid fellow career politician Thad Cochran,76,  helping him overcome conservative challenger Chris McDaniel, Republicrat Sen. John McCain engaged in some Monday morning quarterbacking  regarding strengths he saw in Cochran’s approach to campaigning.  According to the McCain venerating daily.

McCain dismissed criticism over the smear campaign and race baiting tactics establishment Republicans used to encourage black Democrats to crossover and reregister as Republicans or Independents to vote for 6-termer  Cochran. In a squeaker of an election, Cochran beat McDaniel by 50.9 percent to 49.1 percent.

McCain was full of sarcasm as  he  zinged, “There are some people complaining that African-American voters voted. [But] I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans.” He described Cochran’s “get-out-the-vote campaign” as “excellent,” then talked about how he will face similar circumstances in Arizona and needs to work equally as hard if he runs again. “The key is you’d better pay attention, you’d better work hard, you’d better organize.” He added, “And you’d better understand that there’s a strong anti-Washington/anti-incumbency sentiment out there, which is justified and you’ve got your work cut out for you.” 

McDaniel accurately described  McCain, saying ” he is the perfect example of an establishment Republican. McCain voted to fund ObamaCare, and he won’t rest until he finds a way to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants. His liberal stances might work in Arizona, but he does not line up with Mississippi.”

After being censured repeatedly by elected Republican leaders from around the state of Arizona, it no longer takes much to disabuse Arizona conservatives of the notion that John McCain actually represents them. We know better.

There is an ideological war within the ranks of the Republicans Party. It is exemplified by the  “moderate” GOP establishment’s ire at being unable to control the growing Constitutional conservative base.

In order to pull off the Cochran victory, his campaign recruited and relied on Democrats to win the runoff —- which was held under the state’s open primary format in which even those voters not registered as Republicans could cast ballots.

Rev. Stevie Fieldler, a black Democrat pastor who brought hundreds to the polls for a promise of payment, exposes an alleged massive voter fraud, including a vote-buying operation by the Cochran campaign. “They said they needed black votes,” said Fielder on the phone. Watch the Got News video here.

True The Vote, a leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging the outcome of the bitter Mississippi GOP Senate primary, saying that investigators should take more time to determine whether election laws have been broken and whether illegal ballots were cast. Read the True the Vote lawsuit here.

Beyond despicable is the involvement of former RNC Chairman and two-term Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour in these deceptive tactics. Barbour is now making $millions at his influential D.C. lobbying firm. He and several of his family members were the driving force behind Thad Cochran’s unsavory re-election campaign.

It’s no surprise that these shady tactics meet with John McCain’s approval. They define him.
