ALL U.S. job gains since 2000 to immigrants, not citizens

June 27, 2014

Number of U.S.-born not working grew by 17 million

If you’re among those who  think foreign workers and work visas are needed?  Think again —- this time armed with hard facts.  The Washington Times runs a report based upon a study that  challenges the need for importation of foreign workers. Read “ALL of the net jobs gains in the U.S. since 2000 have gone to immigrants,” by Stephen Dinan.

Since 2000, all of the net jobs added by the U.S. economy have gone to immigrants, both legal and illegal, according to a report being released Friday by the respected  Center for Immigration Studies that challenges prevailing thought that the country needs an influx of workers.

Nearly 6 million more people are working in the U.S. now than in 2000, but the number of native-born Americans holding jobs has declined slightly, from 114.8 million to 114.7 million, according to census figures crunched by CIS. Instead, all of that job growth — a total of 5.7 million –— has gone to immigrants.

Some of the native-born are unemployed, but a huge number have been chased from the workforce altogether, in part because of competition from immigrants, states Steven A. Camarota, research director for CIS and lead author of the report.

And in the face of this distressing news, CBS News Las Vegas reports that Border Patrol agents in Arizona were reportedly fired upon by a Mexican military helicopter that traveled across the border into Arizona.

Still the outrageous demands from America’s emboldened invaders and their supporters, continue. Breitbart’s Tony Lee reports that amnesty advocates stormed Congress today and arrogantly dared Congressional representatives, particularly Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), to take away their Deferred Action status.

We are at war, and it isn’t in the Middle East. Our country’s future is at stake. Arm yourself with information. Check out this 2014 Congressional Research Service report which provides an accounting of all publicly acknowledged deployments of U.S. Military Forces.


Amnesty sinks Obama, Cantor, McCain & Flake

June 21, 2014

Gallup Poll: Lack of commitment to US on illegal invasion plunges Obama to 31%

A  newly released Gallup Poll shows two in three Americans (65%) disapprove of Barack Obama’s handling of issues related to illegal immigration.

The poll finds his approval rating has plummeted to 31%, one of the lowest readings since 2010, when Gallup began polling on his handling of this unpopular issue. Disapproval of the president’s lack of management of the illegal invasion has climbed 10 points since August 2013, when more than half of Americans (55%) disapproved.

Despite protestations to the contrary by amnesty advocates, former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor felt the sting of amnesty blowback when he lost his Virginia Congressional seat. Victor Davis Hanson writing for National Review’s The Corner gives an incisive post-mortem opining, “Cantor’s luck ran out when his long insistence of pushing immigration-reform legislation finally coincided with a massive and sudden rush of thousands to the U.S. border from Central America. That lining up of the planets explains why a good but obscure candidate beat a supposedly invincible insider.” 

In January we noted that even the amnesty-supporting AZ Republic admitted that Jeff Flake, McCain’s protégé, was losing support over this issue.

The Daily Caller reported that Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, who worked diligently with Democrats in an effort to pass an amnesty bill, have managed to sink their poll ratings to record lows. In fact, the duo was reported to be in a head-to-head race for capturing the least popular U.S. Senator prize. Though McCain dipped to a 30 percent approval rating from Arizona voters, Jeff Flake managed to reach even further down to 27 percent approval. 

The complete article, including a link to the embarrassing poll, can be read here. Today’s fact-filled linked reviews are definitely worth your time and provide answers to those who falsely claim amnesty —– or whatever name they choose to call it on any particular day —-  is not a defining issue. For an increasing number of Americans, it has moved to the forefront of their ballot considerations.


Border disaster by design

June 18, 2014

Breitbart’s Chris Burgard exposes the harsh reality of the actual beneficiaries of the now exacerbated border crisis, consisting of tens of thousands of women and young children —- many unaccompanied —- illegally entering the United States. He calls it “disaster by design,” and implicates the enabling congress which benefits as much as the cartels.

As the hand-wringing continues, where is the DC concern that our sieve-like southern border is the portal for violent drug cartels bringing drugs to American streets and hooking our own children?

We are repeatedly and falsely told that our immigration policy —- the most generous in the industrialized world —-  is broken. The only thing broken is the will to enforce our sovereign border against invasion. Arizona’s enabling Sens. McCain and Flake sing the broken border tune as a mantra. Three facilitating GOP congressmen, Paul Gosar, Matt Salmon and David Schweikert  recently co-authored this mealy-mouthed missive —- chock full of poll tested bromides —- keeping the door open to “Immigration Reform.“ It begins with this sentence: “America is a nation of immigrants.” Oddly missing is the word “legal.”

They call for expansion and streamlining our temporary work-visa program “to help” American businesses,  (Read: the Chambers of Commerce that are their high dollar, cash infusing campaign donor base) saying we can and should expand this program, and ludicrously state this carrot will discourage further illegal immigration.

They give bogus lip-service to their angry constituents, by stating “the program must include enforcement mechanisms to ensure temporary workers do not overstay their visas, add to the ballooning cost of entitlements and increase the population of illegal immigrants already in the country.”

Although GOP U.S. Rep. Trent Franks didn’t sign on to the opinion piece, he allowed illegals and their supporters to camp out in his front yard and joined them in prayer (video).

Now they claim the wild influx of Central American children is an example of the unintended consequences of President Obama’s disregard for the rule of law.  The AZ 4 neglect to include themselves as a major part of the problem.

The fact is America is being invaded and those we elected to protect this country are miserably failing us. Believe them at your own peril.


Democrats vs. Free Speech

June 15, 2014

Terry Eastlake, Executive Editor of the Weekly Standard, has written an important article revealing nefarious liberal schemes to undercut U.S. Supreme Court decisions relating to elections and our fundamental First Amendment freedom of speech rights.

The article, Democrats vs. Free Speech is a must read for conservative Americans desiring insight into the seemingly endless machinations of the left.

As an example of such suppression tactics, this CNS news report provides the background to the manipulative efforts of John McCain and his then Democrat senate ally Russ Feingold (WI) in their attempt to overturn First Amendment protections and empower incumbent politicians with the clout to prohibit public criticism —- virtually an incumbent protection racket. This specific case involved their attempt to silence Wisconsin Right to Life.

In 2008 the U.S. Supreme Court soundly rejected the assault on free speech imposed by the deceptively named “Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002” —- widely known as the McCain-Feingold Act.

In November 2010, Wisconsin voters rose up and ejected Feingold in favor of conservative Ron Johnson. Arizona voters were not as successful in their senate race. The alarmed McCain, unpopular with Constitution-based voters, dumped over $30 million into his effort against conservative former U.S. Rep. JD Hayworth. McCain has since been censured by state and county GOP officers and both he and his underling Jeff Flake have staggering low poll numbers —- the worst in the nation.


Tobin switches jockeys late in the race

June 10, 2014

The Yellow Sheet confirms the rumor that Andy Tobin’s campaign manager, Craig Handzlik, has abruptly departed Tobin’s congressional campaign. Given his monthly salary of $7,500, it’s difficult to take seriously the spin that Handzlik has taken leave “to pursue other opportunities and remains supportive and helpful to the campaign.”

Tobin’s free-fall CD 1 campaign is hoping to revive itself by bringing on Bill Cortese, a senior associate at New Jersey’s Mercury Public Affairs. The group’s stated political strategy is, “Mobilize the message and unleash the power of persuasion. Take control. Define the issues. Frame the discussion. Win.”

Given Tobin’s penchant for pomposity, such tactics may fall on deaf ears. As seen in this Arizona Capitol Times piece, Tobin wants unbridled control, which is why he refused to engage in a Q & A 2014 legislative session wrap-up interview —- a first for the widely read publication.

Cortese, Tobin’s new manager recently worked as a political director for Chris Christie’s 2013 re-election campaign —- allowing Christie to be seen in a chummy stroll with Obama —- a move that won’t fly in Arizona. He was also campaign manager for hothead and ethically challenged U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm prior to leaving that campaign last month after Grimm was indicted by federal authorities on 20 counts relating to tax evasion and hiring illegals at his New York restaurant.

Seeing Red AZ recently covered some of Tobin’s own problems, including late payment of property taxes nearly 30 times between 2000 and 2014 and an embarrassing intra-party censure by Republican leaders. That accounts for the establishment team of Sens. McCain, Flake and Kyl coming to his aid by hosting a high dollar fundraiser for the union-supporting Tobin. John Boehner also headlined a fundraiser.

Bringing in eastern consultants likely gives a sense of assurance to the Stetson wearing New York native Tobin, who oddly poses as an Arizona cowboy.


Laura Ingraham backs Dave Brat, blasts RINO Cantor & UPDATE

June 9, 2014

CONSERVATIVE VICTORY!!! DAVE BRAT TROUNCES HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER ERIC CANTOR

Defines pro-amnesty Eric Cantor as choice of Obama and Pelosi

Breitbart reports that conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham campaigned in Virginia for the primary challenger to Republicrat Majority Leader Eric Cantor.  Ingraham and conservative challenger, Randolph-Macon economics professor Dave Brat, issued a blistering attack on Cantor’s immigration record.

At the well attended evening event, Ingraham and Brat exposed amnesty supporting Cantor, who is responding by falsely touting himself as an anti-amnesty warrior in campaign literature.

The rally was dominated by discussion of Cantor’s record on immigration, highlighting his support for legislation to grant amnesty to the so-called DREAMERS and in support of the House GOP’s self-acknowledged “piecemeal” immigration scheme that calls for “legal status,” but not outright citizenship (yet) for millions of illegal aliens.

“I have this crazy idea, as does Dave Brat, that coming to our country, respecting our way of life, our laws, is a condition precedent to your becoming an American citizen,” Ingraham told the enthusiastic crowd.

Ingraham said she came to the suburb of Richmond to endorse Prof. Brat because “we are slowly losing our country.”

“Who do you think Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi want to win this primary?” she asked the crowd. “They want Eric Cantor to win,” she said, “because Eric Cantor is an ally in the biggest fight that will occur in the next six months in Washington… and that is the fight over immigration amnesty.”

The Daily Caller declares the recent survey showing conservative Dave Brat closing in on struggling Republicrat Eric Cantor a “shock poll.” The congressional primary election is tomorrow. If you have family or friends who reside in Virginia’s 7th congressional district, call and encourage them to vote for Dave Brat.  This important election matters to us all —- regardless of where we live.

Lawmaker Andy Tobin: Do as I say, not as I do

May 29, 2014

Paid property taxes late nearly 30 times

As Speaker of the Arizona House, Andy Tobin might be expected to have at least a shred of respect for the law. Now that he’s running for Congress in Arizona’s First Congressional District such a basic consideration should be a requisite.

According to the daily, Tobin faced the possibility of a foreclosure on his home nearly two decades ago due to racking up $2,000 in back taxes. That can happen. But far more egregious, he subsequently paid his property taxes late nearly 30 times between 2000 and 2014. At the time the Tobin’s owned three properties —- in Prescott and Paulden, including their current home —–after having sold their home in Dewey, in 1996 in lieu of foreclosure.

Tobin has other problems every bit as taxing as his taxes. He’s sorely neglected both his legislative duties and his constituents, passing them up for a south-of-the-border soiree with Democrats and RINOs. Although he’s been censured by Maricopa County Republican leaders, the union pushing Tobin has captured the support of the toxic pro-amnesty U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Sens. John McCain, Jeff Flake, Jon Kyl have jointly hosted a high-dollar fundraiser for him.

We’ve written about some of the tax woes of Tobin’s primary opponent, rancher Gary Kiehne. He’s racked up 15 past-due tax bills, for at least eight homes and parcels of land. Kiehne claims he lost track of due dates because he was campaigning.

State Rep. Adam Kwasman, an economist and the third Republican candidate in the CD1 race, is in the best possible position in this pack. He doesn’t own any property.
