Riggs mocked for staying fit, silence on Flake’s ego trip

July 19, 2014

“A tough guy for a tough job”

Gubernatorial candidate Frank Riggs’ latest campaign ad juxtaposes a few seconds of shots of the 62-year-old former U.S. Congressman working out as it lists his numerous credentials qualifying him for Arizona’s top office.

Leave it to the leftist Arizona Republic newspaper to use the ad to ridicule Riggs, in a bit of tripe titled, “I’m too sexy for my shirt.”

Riggs, also an army vet, a former police officer and a deputy sheriff, begins the pitch with “Arizona needs a strong governor,” and tags his commercial with “Sure it’s a tough job, and I’m just the guy to do it.”

Speaking himself rather than using a paid voice-over announcer, he says, “Big changes take hard work. As governor I’ll protect public safety….Finally secure our border….I’ll fight federal overreach and the Obamatization of Arizona ….by repealing Common Core on Day One and stopping Medicaid Expansion. And I’ll fix the state budget and get our economy growing again.  Sure it’s a tough job….and I’m just the guy to do it.

The same newspaper went silent in 2009 when then-congressman Jeff Flake, in his 40’s at the time, took a solo vacation on a deserted Pacific island with only his tripod and camera to keep him company. He sent shirtless photos of himself to the immediate world and got a pass.

We covered the preening Flake, when he didn’t cover himself —-  and the local newspaper looked the other way. The egocentric Flake even sent his pics to the liberal Washington Post. His shirtless adventure was covered in a Reason magazine piece cleverly titled, Rep. Jeff Flake goes on island vacation, catches crabs, and he milked his beefcaking on in this televised interview.

Hypocritical double standards exist at the amnesty pushing Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic). Republicrat Jeff Flake is solidly onboard with their leftwing agenda, so don’t look for objective reporting.


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.

 


Americans join forces to push back against invasion

July 16, 2014

Amnesty politicians and dictatorial president need to hear America’s voice

Leo Hohmann of WND reports Hundreds of cities fight back against ‘invasion. His article includes a transcript clip from Tuesday’s Rush Limbaugh intro detailing stories about the successful pushback against the hordes of illegals taking place across America.

“Here’s what you do not know,” Limbaugh said.  “There are towns all over America standing up to this invasion, just like they did in Murrieta, California.  You’re not hearing about it, however, and I am here to tell you why you’re not hearing about it.  Westminster, Maryland, is a town standing up to it, just like Murrieta, California, did. Oracle, Arizona, is standing up to it.

“In Nebraska they’re going to stand up to it when they find out. The governor is fit to be tied,” Limbaugh continued.  “Upper Michigan, same thing. There are towns all over America standing up to this.  There are protests happening, but they’re not being covered.”

But the mother of all protests promises to be Friday and Saturday. It’s dubbed the National Day of Protesting Against Immigration Reform, Amnesty & Border Surge, and it’s gaining support by the hour, said William Gheen, president of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and one of 11 sponsors. The main organizers are ALIPAC, Overpasses For America and MakeThemListen.com, Gheen said.

“Right now it’s looking like we’ll have a little more than 300 protest rallies large and small across the country. Our goal is to unify Americans of all races, political parties and walks of life against the Obama-inspired illegal immigrant invasion,” Gheen said. “At last count we had 257 communities signed up, but that was two hours ago. We’re expecting more than 300 and updating the event list every two hours.”

Gheen said he’s hoping to send a message to “amnesty” politicians in both parties. He wants to counteract the recent surge of illegals at the southern border with a “surge” of his own.

“We’re hoping to get an American surge that will manifest in protests and the defeat of more Eric Cantor-type Republicans that still have GOP primaries and the Democrats in November that support Obama and his amnesty plans,” Gheen told WND.

ALIPAC includes a list of cities participating in the July 18 -19 national protest.

Get involved. Have you had enough of dictatorial governance by “a pen and a phone” bypassing the U.S. Constitution and congressional authority? Let your voice be heard. Our nation is eroding before our eyes. There won’t be an opportunity for a  “do-over.”


Patriots assemble in Oracle, AZ to protest invasion

July 15, 2014

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, speaking at a Townhall meeting in Saddlebrook Monday evening told the approximately 200 people in attendance that his office only recently learned of plans to bring 40 to 60 illegal youth to Sycamore Canyon Boys Ranch in Oracle.

Babeu said he has attempted to contact Homeland Security expressing public safety and health concerns. But overall, he told the audience, he feels he’s being kept in the dark by the feds.

He confirmed the Boys Ranch facility has increased staff by 30 people in anticipation of the new arrivals and he has vowed, “We will not let up, that’s our job to provide public safety to the families that are there.”

Between 500 and 700 people, are expected in Oracle today. The leftwing Tucson Weekly a reliable arm of Arizona’s Democrat Party, and replete with missteps, ran this goofy coverage of angel emulators in support of the invasion, proving the People’s Republic of Pima is alive and well.

According to Richard Viguerie’s Conservative HQ, other protests around the state are scheduled to align with the National Protests Against Amnesty July 18-19, 2014. As part of  the largest coordinated protest against all forms of amnesty, comprehensive immigration reform, and Barack Obama’s complete failure to enforce immigration laws and secure our borders will begin, all across America.  The protests are scheduled to be held at state capitols, Mexican consulates, and on streets and overpasses coast-to-coast, including Hawaii and Alaska.  

Phoenix: AZ State Capitol, 1700 W Washington St, Phoenix, Arizona 85007, Friday, July 18, and Saturday, July 19. Both protests begin at 6:00 am. Attendees are advised to arrive as early as possible due to high temperatures.

Kingman: I-40 & Andy Devine Overpass, Friday, July 18, 8:00am – 11:00am. This protest will take place on the Overpass.

Seeing Red AZ welcomes updates from Oracle by patriots in attendance at today’s demonstration.


Oracle residents mobilizing against feds dump of illegals & UPDATE: contact info

July 13, 2014

Emulate the citizens of Murrieta, California who successfully rebuffed the government’s efforts to dump illegal aliens into their town. Oracle has organized a protest for Tuesday morning. Join the Patriots.

Breitbart News Katie McHugh is reporting that the federal government is planning to relocate 40 unaccompanied alien children into an already-packed facility in the Sycamore Canyon Academy that houses wards of the state. The report quotes Robert Skiba of Oracle, Arizona.

“We’re going to mobilize and we’re going to do the best we can to stop this from happening,” Skiba said. “We’re prepared for whatever happens. If they want to send in the SWAT team, armored cars, helicopters, let them do it. We’ll have the media out there.”

“The boy’s ranch is almost at capacity now and can’t handle 40 additional kids,” the 85-year-old Air Force vet told Breitbart News. “This is an area that’s very primitive. The current facility is almost at capacity. How are they going to handle the sewage?

“They’re sneaking these people in the back door, and we’re not supposed to know anything about it… Putting these 40 kids up in this beautiful place — this is like putting these kids in the country club,” he added.

Skiba and a TV reporter from News 4 KOVA in Tucson, Arizona visited the ranch on Friday after he got word of the government’s plans but were barred from entry.

“They locked the gate in front of us,” Skiba told Breitbart News. “It’s the secrecy of the thing that really bothers me. This is America. I can’t believe this is going on.”

“We’ve got to wake people in America up,” he continued. “This is our country. We’re just average people. [But] we’re not going to let them shove this down our throats… I’m used to controversy of all kinds, and people need leadership, and I’m going to provide them with leadership.”

Obama destabilizes America by colluding with, bankrolling churches

July 13, 2014

Catholic and Baptist churches being bankrolled by HHS

Liberty News reports on the alarming findings that the Obama administration was bankrolling America’s churches back in 2010. The tens of millions were flowing in to prepare for the invasion currently underway.

We urge you to make time to read the shocking report titled, EXCLUSIVE: HHS Bankrolled Catholic and Baptist Church from 2010 to 2013 to Prepare for Obama’s 2014 Invasion!

The following information is lifted in its entirety from the report:

Between Dec. 2010 and Nov. 2013, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Galveston received $15,549,078 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Project” with a program description of “Refugee and Entry Assistance.”

Last year, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Fort Worth received $350,000 from Department of Homeland Security for “citizenship and education training” with a program description of “citizenship and immigration services.”

Between September 2010 and September 2013, the Catholic Charities of Dallas received $823,658 from the Department of Homeland Security for “Citizenship Education Training” for “refugee and entrant assistance.”

From Decrmber 2012 to January 2014, Baptist Child & Family Services received $62,111,126 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Program.”

Documentation regarding the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) Project, compiled by the University of Texas at El Paso, can be read here. And, yes, Phoenix is mentioned. Along with the Rio Grande Valley. Texas, we are noted on page 15 as having “the most shelter beds based on DHS request.”


Costco plays politics — far left version

July 10, 2014

Big-box wholesaler Costco has pulled Dinesh D’Souza’s  new book, “America: Imagine a World Without Her,” just after the nationwide release of the companion movie —- but Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti claims the decision was not motivated by political considerations.

The book, strongly critical of Barack Obama, was officially released June 2. A corporate decision to return the books was issued July 1, just as it is about to debut on the New York Times bestseller list.

Galanti confirmed to Jerome Corsi at WND the “pull order” was in effect and that D’Souza’s book is in the process of being removed from Costco stores this week, with the goal to have all copies of his book out of Costco stores nationwide and shipped back to the vendor no later than July 15.

He claims the decision to pull the book was not political but was based solely on sales, arguing Costco’s national goal is to market books that show up on the New York Times bestseller list.

The book will make the New York Times list July 13.

Jim Sinegal, co-founder of Costco, endorsed Barack Obama (video) at the Democratic National Convention in 2012. In total, Costco has given $100,000 to Obama and another $100,000 to Priorities USA, the pro-Obama super PAC. Sinegal was the author of an email blast sent out by the Obama campaign in July 2012. Obama also held a fundraiser at Sinegal’s house in Seattle.

Read “Costco removing D’Souza’s “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” from shelves. and then decide if you want to keep supporting this radical leftist and funding his donations to a regime dedicated to destroying America. This update, “Costco denies political motive for pulling D’Souza’s book,” expands upon the sorry saga.  

In January, Obama paid a visit to a Costco store in a Washington, D.C., suburb, “proving,” as Jaime Fuller of the Washington Post commented, “that his administration’s romance with the second-largest retailer in America is stronger than ever —- and might just be the most successful union of a politician and a supermarket in American history.”

Watch as D’Souza discusses his film:

 Then make plans to see it. 


Obama’s deplorable display of hilarity illustrates border disconnect

July 10, 2014

The adage that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” is twice as potent when viewing the President of the United States at a meeting with Texas Gov. Rick Perry Wednesday. These must-see photos linked on PJ Media were taken during a discussion of the crisis resulting from the flood of unaccompanied children and teens —- now estimated at 57,000 —- illegally crossing into the U.S. from Central America.

Although Barack Obama has described the situation on the border as a “humanitarian crisis,” he clearly is not taking the discussion as seriously as others at the table. Contrast his unbridled hilarity with the seriousness displayed by Gov. Perry and other members of the governor’s team.

While visiting Texas for a $10,000 a person to $32,400 per couple a plate barbeque fundraiser raising money for Democrat congressional candidates, Obama refused to visit the border. His lack of first-hand knowledge of the magnitude of the crisis that he has done nothing to alleviate has not restrained him from requesting nearly $4 billion in emergency funding —– with the majority earmarked for processing and care for the children, and not securing America’s sieve-like border.

There’s nothing that is taking place down there that I am not intimately aware of and briefed on,” Obama offered.

U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-South Carolina) has criticized the funding request, suggesting foreign aid should be docked to pay for it. “I think it’s a charade,” he said. “I think the president has set it up to make it look as though the only reason he’s not enforcing the border is because he doesn’t have the money. And that’s not accurate.”

Obama regime reconfigures invasion as “a humanitarian crisis” needing $billions

July 9, 2014

Just when you think Barack Obama might have exhausted his ideas on how to bring the United States of America to its knees, he has pulled yet another Marxist scheme from his endless bag of tricks.

Now he is requesting a nearly $4 billion taxpayer-funded bailout to resettle the reported 52,000 “immigrant children” flooding our borders.  The words “humanitarian crisis” with or without the word “urgent,“ are glibly tossed around as he is now characterizes the onslaught as “refugees” fleeing political turbulence in Central America.

This is a “crisis” contrived by Obama.

We are told the money is needed to set up new detention facilities, conduct more aerial surveillance, hire more immigration judges and Border Patrol agents to respond to the contrived assault of 52,000 children on the U.S.

Let’s not forget that the Obama regime has spent years saying the border has never been more secure than it is now. We’ve heard that mantra from Obama and previously from former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano in her role as chief of Homeland Security as well as during her time in our state. Infamous for inaction as she ridiculed fence construction, Napolitano continually stated, “You show me a 50-foot wall and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder. That’s the way the border works.”

Wake up, America! Under the Obama regime, we are experiencing a brand of previously unknown political turbulence ourselves. The wall we were promised has never materialized. In fact, we were told it would pose a risk to our invaders. The National Guard units dispatched to provide security to our homeland were hastily withdrawn. The $20 million highly touted technology failed. Obama’s deceitful cheap talk and costly “solutions” are fraudulent.

In the worst economy since the Great Depression, the man who considers our Constitution an annoyance and himself an emperor, now tries to convince us to pony up more money to guarantee Third World status for ourselves.

As a border state, Arizona is on the front lines in this battle. Violent drug cartels have now taken over the illegal alien transporting business. Patriots in California have blocked the buses dumping illegals in their towns. The recent Independence Day observances should energize us to stand up against oppression from an overreaching government. That’s exactly what the yearly celebrations commemorate.

Listen as Obama —- the elected leader of the United States, sworn to uphold our Constitution and protect American citizens —- boldly mocks security efforts and spews lies regarding the border.

 


9th Circus: AZ’s denial of illegals driver’s licenses based in “animosity”

July 8, 2014

Brewer calls DACA program “President Obama’s lawless directive”

In a unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals it has been ordered that “DREAMers allowed to work in the U.S. by virtue of one of Barack Obama’s infamous executive orders, also must be issued Arizona driver’s licenses.

The Ninth Circuit, often referred to as the Ninth Circus, is the most overturned court in the nation. The judges on the panel —- political appointees of Presidents Carter, Clinton and Obama —- rendered their ruling Monday.

The court rejected arguments by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer that she was entitled to deny licenses to those in the federal government’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The appeals court ordered U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell, to direct the state Department of Transportation to provide licenses to those who are in that program.

Among the completely unverifiable provisions referred to in the decision are the DACA eligibility factors —- including the claim that they were brought to the United States before the age of sixteen and were under thirty-one years old as of June 15, 2012. They must have been living in the United States when DACA was announced and have continuously resided in the United States for at least the previous five years; and they must have graduated from high school, or obtained a GED, or have been honorably discharged from the U.S. Armed Forces, or be currently enrolled in school. Additionally, they must not pose any threat to public safety. Anyone who has been convicted of multiple misdemeanors, single significant misdemeanor, or any felony offense is supposedly ineligible for DACA.

Attempting to prove any of these ages, dates or status, is a fool’s errand. Names and other pertinent identifying information are routinely altered making proof of criminal offenses an enterprise with the incentives far greater than fear of discovery.

Arizona is dealing with an illegal community where forged, stolen or otherwise counterfeit documents to underwrite life in the United States is de rigueur.  Identity theft is a major criminal enterprise especially evident in border states. The intent is to provide documents to facilitate the lives of foreign nationals illegally entering the U.S.

The Ninth Circuit Court’s opinion can be read here.

Gov. Jan Brewer’s strongly worded, single page response to the ruling can be read here.
