Tech industry honchos intensify push for amnesty

October 25, 2013

Big government, big business, open-borders alliance undercuts Americans

NumbersUSA runs a report titled “Comprehensive Amnesty Threat,” that is a must read if you care about adherence to the Rule of Law and the continuation of the great country our Founders envisioned for us.

The so-called Tech Giants of Silicon Valley have another vision, and one they intend to implement through the pressure of big bucks and use of bogus language — such as “comprehensive immigration reform,” “secure the border,” “broken immigration system” and “Dreamers” which has morphed into a dreamy word from the acronym D.R.E.A.M. (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors).

This opinion piece “Obama’s DREAM Act is a constitutional nightmare,” by former U.S. Rep. Bob Barr (R-GA) fills in the gaps.  Barr says the so-called DREAM Act “provides significant and continuing benefits to persons residing in the United States unlawfully.” There is no means of verification when illegals claim they were brought here as babes in arms rather than actually crossing into the U.S. as adults, making it an open invitation for fraud — since legislation would make it illegal for any information in an amnesty application to be used to initiate removal proceedings. The burden of proof would fall on law enforcement agencies, forcing them to prove that any information they used to find, detain and try to remove an illegal alien was already in their files before an application was received or was not derived from the application. If an illegal lies about his age to qualify for the program, and the lie is never detected, he gets amnesty. And if the lie is discovered, it matters not, since law enforcement is forbidden from using that information  against the Dreamy new democrat voter.

Of course, none of that matters to Mark Bloomberg and FWD.US, a group set up by Silicon Valley titans including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Reed Hastings of Netflix, Andrew Mason of Groupon, and Melissa Mayer of Yahoo, who are funding a conservative “fly-in” of conservatives to meet with Republican U.S. Representatives and lobby them to support amnesty.  Silicon Valley’s efforts to pass this brazen shamnesty plan aren’t ending there.

Next month, FWD.US will be hosting a “DREAMer Hackathon” to showcase the tech skills of illegal aliens and to put their plight back in the spotlight.  At this event, Dreamers will complete digital tasks and build online tools that help pro-amnesty advocates.

FWD.US Executive Director Todd Schulte said: “We think it’s a great opportunity to highlight the potential of ‘Dreamers’ and why we need comprehensive immigration reform. By having these incredible kids coming together with other programmers, we’re not only going to highlight exactly why our nation needs to fix our broken immigration system, we’re going to help create better advocacy to make that happen.”

The lengthy list of mega wealthy founders/contributors/supporters of FWD.US also includes Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, Tim Armstrong, CEO and Chairman of AOL, Inc., Barry Diller, Chairman and Senior Executive of IAC, Bill Gates, Chairman of Microsoft and Co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, gives an indication of the level of pre$$ure the members of congress will receive.

Why don’t these industry leaders want to hire American citizens when our unemployment rates remain at unacceptable levels?


JD Hayworth: Continues to speak for Conservatives

October 20, 2013

Our thanks to SRAZ reader Saguaro Sam for the following comment regarding former 6-term Arizona Congressman J.D. Hayworth’s appearance on “Geraldo” Saturday evening:

“J.D. Hayworth was just on the Geraldo show tonight (10/19; FOX news channel) talking about the protective curtain that Obama has put around all the Fast and Furious players. J.D. called out Dennis Burke, Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder, and Obama. FACTS, FACTS, FACTS, delivered in the masterfully succinct style that we have come to know and appreciate. Thanks, J.D. You are a patriot and a gentleman.”

Of course, we agree, Sam.

Although we missed that important appearance, We are happy to bring our readers J.D. Hayworth‘s “Tea Party Address,” which he delivered in his role as “Senior Contributor” to TPNN.com — the Tea Party News Network. This rebuttal is in response to Obama’s weekly radio address, more correctly identified as his weakly dose of deception.


House GOP amnesty sellouts exposed by name

October 2, 2013

The Weekly Standard’s blog headlines a 3-page article titled “84 House Republicans Support Legalizing Undocumented Workers.”

Author Maria Santos notes on Page Two that among this “Full List” of representatives, “some may have since changed their minds, but all spoke positively of legalizing immigrants within the last year.”  Check out numbers 3, 4, 5, and 6 on the list of 84. They are all names familiar to Arizona Republicans.

Twenty other GOP U.S. Reps, listed as “The Maybes” have said they would be willing to consider amnesty. The word amnesty is actually never used. The smooth members of congress know how to play word games better than Pat Sajak and Vanna White combined. Sajak is likely more reliable than many of the folks on the list — as evidenced by the numerous articles he has written for the conservative magazine Human Events.

The words of Texas Rep. Ted Poe illustrates the erudite-sounding and carefully massaged turn of phrase of which we should all beware: “We should start a documentation process…Documentation does not mean citizenship and all of the rights that the term bestows. It means a type of legal status, either temporary or permanent, for some that are here, and it also means a pathway home for those who are here to commit crimes.”

It’s time to turn up the heat again…before Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, Bob Goodlatte, et al (including the Arizonans named in this article) sell us out.  It’s clear the effort is underway.

Our earlier post today “Shutdown? GOP U.S. Reps still working to backdoor amnesty,” meshes well with the Weekly Standard article. The WS does a great job of naming the names and citing their disturbing quotes.

Read them. Then do something.


Shutdown? GOP U.S. Reps still working to backdoor amnesty

October 2, 2013

Why are GOP amnesty hustlers disregarding the  plight and concerns of American citizens, as they aid Obama’s scheme for increasing Democrats?

As our attention is diverted by the government shutdown of “non-essential services” in the wake of an attempted defunding of Obamacare — all great media fodder — something else is simmering behind the scenes.

ABC News carries the AP report that House Republicans are still hard at work on amnesty. You might not have heard the word mentioned lately as the federal overreach into our healthcare has taken center stage, but that illegal immigration overhaul legislation, craftily called “comprehensive” by its proponents is alive and well.  As the nation is sidetracked, those GOP members we elected are toiling to bring in competition for our jobs and our kid’s university placements.

Those folks we helped put in their cushy offices along the Potomac need to hear from us. (Contact information under link) Obamacare is large scale and unsustainable socialism that will alter our health care delivery in unimagined ways and with disastrous ramifications, such as age restricted care.

Amnesty will legitimatize criminal behavior, ultimately rewarding upward of 25 million illegals with the gift of American citizenship.  Yet that doesn’t appear to deter its supporters.

“I would think that would be the next agenda item in the queue after we’re done with this mess,” said Texas Republican Congressman Mike McCaul, referring to bitter divisions over the health law, the level of government spending and the growing federal debt.

Arizonans know this farce all too well. With our southern border the major portal for the invasion of foreign nationals, and having been sold out by the original architects of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” — Sen. John McCain and former Sen. Jon Kyl.

 Jeff Flake who succeeded Kyl has long been solidly onboard this train wreck.  During his years in the U.S. House, he partnered with Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez on this maneuver. In this article, “The Numbers Are On Our Side,” written for Progress Illinois, radical liberal Gutierrez credits Flake for his assistance in turning more red states blue.

Why would Republicans be aligning with Democrats to import millions more Democrats to ensure the demise of the GOP? How are unemployed or underemployed American citizens well served by a massive surge of new workers competing for still scarce jobs?  How do native-born American students benefit when illegals cunningly described as “DREAMers” vie for university placements and ultimately for a limited number of jobs?

It’s time to once again marshal our forces and remind our members of congress that we helped put them where they are and we will work to return them home. They are called representatives because they are supposedly representing the citizens of their state.


September 11, 2001: We will not forget

September 11, 2013

We also need to get smarter and drop the politically correct descriptions

Twin towers

Twelve years ago today, 2,973 people were murdered by terrorists who commandeered two commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City and  a third into the Pentagon. The death toll includes 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers rushed the cockpit.

 Along with our American citizens, people from 90 other countries were killed in the attacks perpetrated by those we have referred to each year as we post this memorial as “Islamo-fascist extremists.”

Today as we also remember the orchestrated attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi on this same date just last year  — resulting in the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Ty Woods, Sean Smith and Glen Doherty, we are changing our descriptive terminology.

Bare Naked Islam (BNI), a site which boldly declares, “It isn’t Islamophobia when they really ARE trying to kill you,” exposes the fact that these terrorists are not an aberration of Islam, but rather devout followers extolled as the “Magnificent 19” and, in fact, revered for their heinous acts by their families and their communities. BNI includes portions of a book ‘Perfect Soldiers: The 9/11 Hijackers, Who They Were, Why They Did It’, written by LA Times reporter Terry McDermott.  After doing in-depth research for his book, McDermott concludes they were all “model Muslims,” actually “perfect soldiers” for Allah, deeply religious and following the tenets of their faith.

“Allahu Akbar! translates to “Allah is Greater.” It is an Islamic Arabic expression, used as both an informal expression of faith and as a formal declaration — often accompanying Jihadist terror attacks.

Days ago, Arizona’s senior Sen. John McCain foolishly compared shouts of “Allahu Akbar!” to a Christian saying “Thank God.” The post and the video can be seen here. This is exactly the type of irrational political correctness that needs to be replaced.

We begin today.


Invasion‘s magical lingo: “Migrants, undocumented, refugees, asylum seekers…”

September 9, 2013

….replacing the politically incorrect “illegal aliens”

Our normally dry Valley is awash, not just with a drenching downpour, but also with a flood of what the daily newspaper cunningly refers to as “migrants.” We know them as illegal aliens, and most often view them as invading the United States via Arizona’s southern border, from Mexico, South and Central America.

Sunday’s edition disabuses us of such notions. An oversized front page report, continuing for two additional jump pages, details the “hundreds, maybe even thousands, of undocumented migrants from India” smuggled yearly into Arizona seeking  “asylum.” On average, they pay $35,000 apiece to gain access, using dubious claims of facing danger in their homeland. The numbers of such claimants is surging. Even the open-borders newspaper reports officials are suspicious of their pitiful tales — though the steady flood  of humanity continues.

Today’s edition provides more of the same. In this saga, it is a Hutu farmer living in Zimbabwe being helped to “rejoin his family” by the Grand Canyon chapter of the American Red Cross. He has not seen his Tutsi wife and children since he fled a refugee camp in Zambia, leaving them behind in 2005.  He is still in Africa, but count on him arriving  in Phoenix soon. For reasons undisclosed, the family requested their names not be released.

Despite being assured by former Homeland InSecurity chieftain, Janet Napolitano that “our borders have never been stronger,” exactly the opposite is true. Watch this sobering WSB Atlanta Action News report detailing the OTM’s (Other Than Mexicans) from terror sponsoring nations, who have learned Spanish and infiltrated the USA.

Is there a genial way to say “We told you so?” Probably not. We will simply self-congratulate on our own early perceptions of the transmogrifications of amnesty and the threats Americans are facing, ignored by our own government officials at both the federal and state level.  

In 2008, we saw it coming, in the post “Lawbreakers morphing into asylum seekers,” noting the reconfiguring of illegal aliens into victims. It was an ideal pretext for the open borders Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic), providing the leftist decimator of pap another convenient hook for its endless promotion of amnesty. And it perfectly comported with the United Nation’s expanded concept of refugees in its 1967 Convention and Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees, to include persons fleeing violence in their home country.

In 2010, we wrote “The ball to keep your eyes on: Newly configured ‘political refugees.’” We followed in 2011 with “Asylum! The hottest ticket for ‘political refugees.’”

The claim worked well for Barack Obama’s Kenyan-born aunt Zeituni Onyango who lived in taxpayer supported public housing in Boston. She was granted asylum in a private hearing six years after being ordered deported.


Biden suggests Janet Napolitano for Supreme Court

September 6, 2013

As a liberal cabinet member, Janet Napolitano has been an Obama favorite. She not only toed the far left line, she was among the first to endorse his 2007 candidacy and then showed her dedication by abandoning her post as Arizona governor midterm as she raced to join the new Obama administration.

Arizonans, all too familiar with the notorious veto queen dubbed “J-No” for her outlandishly partisan number of vetoes of Republican-led legislation and out-of-control spending were happy to see her depart our state. She holds the dubious distinction of having vetoed more bills than any other Arizona governor since statehood.

As Secretary of Homeland Security she did nothing to secure our porous border and ably botched whatever she touched, ranging from oil spills, airline security or misinforming on domestic terror threats. Her department was scandal-plagued.  An ardent liberal, she has been a staunch supporter of amnesty for illegals which would enhance Democrat voter registration and bring a swift demise to the GOP. She even labeled returning U.S. military veterans as “Right-wing extremists” posing national security threats. Her inflammatory report titled “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment“ can be viewed in this post.

Napolitano led the Obama administration’s categorization of the murderous Fort Hood attack in which a Muslim extremist yelling “Allah Akbar” killed 13 people and injured 32 others as “workplace violence.”  She supported putting words such as “Islamist” and “jihadist” off limits. “Global War on Terror” was replaced by the phrase “Global Struggle for Security and Progress.” This was accomplished through the edition of “Terminology to Define Terrorists,” a nine-page, “Official Use Only” memo written in conjunction with Muslim advisers.

It comes as no surprise that VP Joe Biden, angling for an Obama endorsement of his own as he readies for a 2016 race, would suck up to Barack Obama by suggesting Napolitano is just the ticket for a U.S. Supreme Court post. Biden, known as a gaffe machine, outdid himself today, as he called her a “really, really bright lady.”

This is her last day with the administration, leaving to become president of the University of California system. Biden made his foolish comments at her farewell event.


Jeb Bush opting out of 2016 presidential race?

September 6, 2013

Set to bestow honor on Hillary Clinton Sept. 10th

In a move guaranteed to ensure failure as he sets his sights on the 2016 Republican nomination for president, Jeb Bush will present Hillary Clinton with the 2013 Liberty Medal in “recognition of her lifelong career in public service.”

The insulting ceremony is scheduled one day short of one year after the Benghazi terrorist attack that took place September 11, 2012.  As Secretary of State, Clinton engaged in a lengthy campaign of lies and despicable obfuscation, attempting to conceal the truth of the massacre that left 4 Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens. 

The State Department knew minutes after the siege began that terrorists were attacking the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, but the Obama administration hacks denied knowledge, relentlessly and misleadingly blaming the siege on a few dissidents allegedly upset over an anti-Muslim YouTube video.

Clinton conveniently became too ill to testify on the matter when called before a congressional committee. Here she is after her miraculous recovery, asking “What difference at this point does it make?”

For a review of  Jeb Bush’s stance on the issues, this March 6 post on his Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution,” book-pushing tour with his co-author Clint Bolick of the Goldwater Institute should be enlightening.

Tea Party News Network exposes McCain, Flake sham

August 28, 2013

McFlake-Private-Event-Policed

In advance of the McCain and Flake so-called “Conversation on Immigration” held Tuesday at the Mesa Arts Center, we ran this post McCain & Flake stage a one-way “conversation.”  In it we exposed the deception involved in their oddly timed and closed-door contrivance.

Today we offer this follow-up courtesy of the Tea Party News Network.  In this disturbing report and accompanying photos Jennifer Burke details the restricted John McCain and Jeff Flake event.

We urge you to read it and watch the video.  Arizona’s two U.S. Sens. McCain and Flake ostensibly held a “conversation” with their constituents that was actually a private, invitation only, media staged event, guarded by barricades and uniformed police. With six-year senate terms uder their belts, these establishment elites don’t want to hear from us — especially on the topic of granting amnesty to our nation’s invaders.

Take the time to listen to Jennifer Burke and acquaint yourself with her first-hand account of the charade being perpetrated on Arizona‘s citizens. We owe her and her fellow Tea Party Patriots a debt of gratitude.


Are your GOP U.S. Reps holding town halls?

August 18, 2013

Empty_Chair_Debate

Although it seems much longer ago, it was just last August when Clint Eastwood gave this memorable speech at the 2012 Republican National Convention. He addressed an empty chair — which represented Barack Obama.

Now we hear that high paid political strategists are advising their clients — the members of congress we electedagainst holding town hall meetings with us — their constituents, many of whom want their voices heard in advance of a House amnesty vote.

To address those who are still “looking for an appropriate venue,” haven’t finalized their schedule “yet” or have one planned after the vote, we offer this suggestion:  How about holding “empty chair” town halls?

The name and picture of the U.S. Representative who is too busy to meet with us during the 5-week congressional recess we so generously provide for them, could be affixed to an empty chair.  Questions from the audience would then be read to the MIA member of congress.  Video tape the events and post them to YouTube. 

Then re-invite the absent representatives. They might decide to show up. If they don’t, we will be there on Election Day, and hopefully elect someone who honestly responds to our very valid concerns, minus the practiced talking points about securing the border “first.”

Here’s what the AZ Republicans each have posted on their websites:

CD 4 U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar refers to “Immigration and Homeland Security” on a page called “foreign affairs.”

CD 5 U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon has a “Defense and National Security” page that skirts the issue.

CD 6 U.S. Rep. David Schweikert calls his page “Immigration.”

CD 8 U.S. Rep. Trent Franks has an “Immigration” page.

If you see any of these folks, it would be good to remind them that “immigration” is a legal act. Illegal entry is not. Our system is not “broken.” However, the abysmal lack of resolve to meaningfully address the invasion of our nation exemplifies an utter absence of will to tackle the tough issues they assured us they would handle if we sent them to D. C.

They are there.

We recommend reading conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s fact-filled column, “Hispanicked GOP elite: They’ll respect us in the morning.” It will provide the basis for excellent questions to direct to the empty chairs you encounter.
