Awaiting GJ decision: Will mob rule reign in Ferguson? UPDATE

November 23, 2014

Taught by Obama, Ferguson vigilantes employ lawless tactics, pump up divisiveness

The aftermath of the Aug. 9 shooting death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri has ignited a firestorm of protestors. Many are imported from outside the state to incite riots, including emboldened members of the Revolutionary Communist Party and New Black Panthers as spotted by the Blaze.

In anticipation of the worst, barricades have been erected around the building where a grand jury has been deliberating.

This surveillance video showing 6’4” and nearly 300 lb. Michael Brown engaged in a strong-armed robbery of a convenience store, just before the shooting, exposes him as less than an innocent “gentle giant” as he has been portrayed.

Last week in anticipation of the grand jury decision —- likely to come Monday —- Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency, even activating National Guard troops, as he cited the “possibility of expanded unrest.”

Businesses in both Ferguson and neighboring Clayton have boarded their windows in anticipation of violence and rioting if the decision is not to the mob’s liking.

Ryan Lovelace writing for National Review reports on the coarse disregard for police requests that the agitators outside the police department disband.

The Obama White House sent a message that escalation of protests was acceptable when it sent three officials to attend Brown’s funeral —- three more than it sent for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral, which it snubbed last year. 

The administration has devoted considerable resources as it highlighted the case. At the time, Attorney General Eric Holder personally visited Ferguson and assigned dozens of investigators to conduct a federal civil rights probe.

The double standard, reported by the Washington Times, became ever more apparent as unarmed white 20-year-old Dillon Taylor was killed by a black police officer in Utah, with no White House representatives at his funeral and no federal probe underway.

Ferguson Grand Jury: No indictment

Looting, fires and pandemonium in cities across U.S. follow decision

 After hearing all of the evidence based on a full investigation, a 12-person grand jury returned no indictment in the highly publicized and racially charged case involving white police officer Darren Wilson, 28, in the shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown, a suspect in a strong armed robbery.

The fact that the mixed race grand jurors did not shrink from their duty out of fear of violence  renews faith in our legal system, that functions on presentation of facts rather than intimidation. The jurors were not sequestered, and knew full well the political ramifications of their decision.

Grand jurors do not decide guilt or innocence.  After weighing a full presentation of evidence, it is the duty of the 12 citizens to determine probable cause as to whether or not sufficient evidence exists to bring charges that will then be presented in a criminal trial.

Officer Wilson’s safety has been an issue since the Aug. 9 shooting, but a recent bounty on his head has put authorities on heightened alert. He is expected to resign his post with the Ferguson Police Department.

As predicted, absolute chaos has taken over, but not just in Ferguson. Mob mentality rioters in cities across the country are setting fires to businesses, looting stores, shooting weapons and overturning police cars. With tensions further inflamed by fiery speeches by Al Sharpton and his ilk, mobs rioted in New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Chicago, Oakland and Washington D.C.


Obama’s raw contempt for constitution’s separation of powers & Update

November 21, 2014

Statements from Arizona’s D.C. delegation

The President of the United States, a onetime senior lecturer who later claimed to be a “constitutional law professor,” has shown his ineptness regarding the subject.

By unilaterally implementing his brazen amnesty scheme via executive order —- bypassing congress —- he has rejected the voice of America’s voters. Barack Obama has exceeded his authority for what he undoubtedly views as  pure political gain.

This is Obama speaking more rationally to a live Univision audience in March 2011:

“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case,” Obama said at the time.

“We’ve got three branches of government,” he instructs.  “Congress passes the law, the executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws and then the judiciary has to interpret the laws,” he says.

“For me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”

When Obama was first sworn into office he had large Democrat majorities in both the Senate and the House. They were so large he could have designed and passed a bill exclusively through the Democrats. Instead he pushed healthcare reform and gun control bills. Now after a major 2014 midterm election loss repudiating his policies, and putting both the Senate and House in GOP control, an angry Obama has bypassed congress altogether.  This comes despite the fact that he has repeatedly acknowledged he does not have the authority to take such action.

Obama’s sagging polling numbers speak volumes. He will have no legacy as he leaves office in two years. Still, the question remains, are his actions legal?

These are the responses to Obama’s executive order under “press releases” from Arizona’s Republican members of congress. Rep. Trent Franks has a page titled “In the News.” His most recent newsworthy issue does not address this massive overstep of presidential authority.

Religion of Peace flexes Muslim Brotherhood muscle

November 16, 2014

Sunday is an appropriate day to post the recent decision by Gary Hall, the Dean of the National Cathedral in Washington, D,C, to host Muslim prayers. In addition, the date that was selected just happened to be the 100th anniversary of the religiously motivated large-scale genocide of innocent Christians.

Breitbart News reports on the bizarre response of Dean Gary Hall to questions about this decision.

Investors Business Daily reacts with this pull-no-punches editorial, “Muslim Brotherhood Hijacks National Cathedral.”

“We want the world to see the Christian community is partnering with us and is supporting our religious freedom in the same way we are calling for religious freedom for all minorities in Muslim countries,” said Rizwan Jaka, a spokesman with the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) mosque in Sterling, Virginia, one of the co-sponsors of Friday’s service. “Let this be a lesson to the world.”

“A lesson” to the world?

As mosques proliferate across the United States and many are known as centers of radicalization, it’s fitting to point out that Islam is not a religion in the sense that Judaism and Christianity are. It dictates every aspect of life, enforced by Sharia courts, domination of women, Quarnic authorization of beheadings and second class status for Dhimmis, non-Muslims in Muslim countries who are subject to humiliating regulations designed to enforce the Quran’s command that they “feel themselves subdued” 

Although churches and synagogues still stand as relics in some cities in Muslim dominated nations, new construction is disallowed. The cities of Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia, absolutely forbid such houses of worship. Conversion of Muslims to other faiths is considered apostasy, a crime punishable by death under strict interpretation of Islamic law.

Two years ago USAToday reported that the number of mosques in the United States had soared 74% since 2000. As political correctness reigns, is anyone paying attention?


Obama 2011: Executive order on amnesty “not appropriate”

Obama 2014: Eagerly embraces Mexico’s poverty exportation scheme as political retaliation

The news is rife with speculation that lame-duck President Barack Obama intends to unveil a series of executive orders that will shield millions of illegal aliens living in the U. S. from deportation, while granting them work permits and access to taxpayer-funded benefits.

His timing is odd, given that the Nov. 4 midterm elections repudiated Obama’s policies —- including those making America an illegal alien sanctuary nation, with an intentionally unenforceable border. Voters across the nation spoke clearly by turning the senate to a Republican majority as well as retaining the House and GOP governorship dominance by even greater margins. Obama’s response is to engage in a flagrant and lawless assault on our constitution to enact measures wrathfully calculated to increase the Democrat voter base.

Democrat duplicity abounds. Obama was pressured to suspend such actions by his own political partisans concerned about the effect amnesty would have on their reelections. These self-serving liberal congressional stalwarts supported Obama’s agenda more than 90 percent of the time.

Of crucial importance is the fact our porous border provides entry to all comers, many who intend harm to America and her citizens. Obama, however, puts his leftist ideology before America’s security.

How do struggling American citizens, many still unemployed or underemployed, benefit by having at least 5 million suddenly legalized foreign workers competing for jobs while undercutting salaries? The new action will expand Obama’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policies, which are already pitting our college-bound students against the now legitimized influx for university placement. 

By now it should be clear that Democrats stock in trade is not putting Americans first and lying about it. This is Obama speaking to a live Univision audience in March 2011. Univision television, based in New York, is an American Spanish language broadcast network with major production facilities in Florida.

“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case,” Obama said at the time.

“We’ve got three branches of government,” he instructs.  “Congress passes the law, the executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws and then the judiciary has to interpret the laws,” he says.

“For me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”


AZ GOP’s disgraceful omission

October 31, 2014

Hey Robert, where’s Diane?

Arizona has a strong conservative candidate in Diane Douglas. Running for state Superintendent of Public Education, Douglas has piqued the interest of nationally syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin, who endorsed her in the primary and celebrated her landslide victory.

Douglas’ race was the one of the first called on Primary Election night as she handily trounced incumbent John Huppenthal, a Common Core curriculum supporter, in a 58 to 41 percent stunning upset —– winning in every single county statewide.

Yet the “Your Republican Team” mailer sent out by the Arizona Republican Party heralding the slate of GOP candidates in contested races, mysteriously omits grassroots heroine Diane Douglas, as she faces a well-funded, far-left, educrat opponent. This inexcusable omission is beyond shameful. Whatever the excuse, the buck stops with state chairman Robert Graham. The phone number of the Arizona GOP headquarters is (602) 957-7770.

Democrats engage in voter fraud, ‘ballot harvesting’

October 28, 2014

By now Arizona’s left-wing ballot stuffing escapade has been seen far and wide. Truth Revolt’s Ben Shapiro reports on the deceptive practices caught on tape. On Monday, Maricopa County Republican Chairman A.J. LaFaro appeared on NewsMax‘ “America’s Forum” with host J.D. Hayworth discussing the scheme known as “ballot harvesting.”

‘Joe for America’ expands on the insidiousness with this shocking account of Obama administration officials convicted of voter fraud in Indiana —- asking the question, “Why is it only Democrats who deal in voter fraud, when it’s they who say it never happens? If this story does not convince you the entire nation needs strict voter ID laws, nothing will.”

Fox News reports a jury in South Bend, Indiana has found that fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election. Two Democrat political operatives have been convicted in the illegal scheme after only three hours of deliberations. They were found guilty on all counts.

Former longtime St. Joseph County Democrat Party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr.  was found guilty of felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud and forgery, and former County Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe was found guilty of felony forgery counts and falsely making a petition, after being accused of faking petitions that enabled Obama, then an Illinois Senator, to get on the presidential primary ballot for his first run for the White House.

According to testimony from two former Board of Election officials who also pled guilty, Morgan ordered Democrat officials and workers to fake the names and signatures that Obama and Clinton needed to qualify for the presidential race. Blythe, then a Board of Elections employee and Democrat Party volunteer, was accused of forging multiple pages of the Obama petitions.

These recent exposés of fraudulent election activities should motivate legislators to strengthen laws, ensuring our political process provides voters with a sense of confidence in the integrity of the voting system.


Ask your AZ US Reps: “Who should get the next jobs?”

October 27, 2014

This 30-second ad is part of a national campaign informing Americans that nearly all U.S. job growth since the year 2000 has gone to new immigrants while millions of Americans who want a full-time job still can’t find one. The ad questions whether Congress should continue to add 1 million more immigrants every year to compete for jobs or if the priority should be for the jobs to go to the Americans and legal immigrants already here who are still looking for work.

“We’re urging every citizen to ask a very simple question of their Senators —- and of anybody who wants to be a Senator,” said NumbersUSA President Roy Beck. “Who should get the next jobs? Do they think their constituents who are looking for work should have priority for jobs? Or are they committed to catering to special-interest groups and helping corporate lobbyists continue to flood the labor market with new foreign workers who, through no fault of their own, depress the wages and job prospects for workers already here?

“Despite the dismal wage and employment reports on American workers, most Members of Congress continue to favor high immigration of workers at all skill levels,” Beck said. “But polling shows the folks back home are far more interested in an immigration policy that protects America’s wage-earners and their families.”

Recent opinion research by The Polling Company/Woman Trend indicates Americans believe immigrants take jobs from Americans rather than create jobs and nearly 9 out of 10 believe U.S.-born workers and legal immigrants already here should get first preference for jobs.

Since 2007, special-interest groups have spent more than $1.5 billion on more than 3,000 lobbyists who have pushed passage of an immigration bill that would dramatically increase immigration. In mid-2013, the groups nearly succeeded when the US Senate passed S.744, a bill that would have doubled legal immigration over the next ten years. Many Senators who voted for S.744 have been distancing themselves from the bill recently. The bill has not been brought to the floor of the House of Representatives.

NumbersUSA.com tracks and grades every Member of Congress on actions that affect the numerical level of immigration. The website also compares the immigration positions of every candidate running for Congress. Check out the grades of the Arizona delegation —-U.S. Senators and Representatives —- HERE. You might be in for a surprise.
