GOP won’t win following Dem amnesty scheme

March 19, 2014

Major polls show Americans not onboard with amnesty — Let Dems own it

As Democrats running for office run from the increasingly toxic Obama, Republicans appear to be running headlong into his amnesty embrace.

In this Politico interview, Reince Priebus, Republican National Committee Chairman, claims there is a consensus in the GOP for “serious immigration reform” as he dissects the one-year anniversary of the RNC’s divisive 2012 100-page autopsy” report that said the party “must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform.” After all, he says, voters see the GOP as a “scary” group of “stuffy old men” who are “out of touch” with an increasingly diverse country. The only word Priebus omitted from his reckless assessment is “White.”

But Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions declares embracing amnesty is precisely the wrong approach for the GOP to take after the party got whacked by low-income voters in the 2012 presidential election, and in a country in which two major polls have found that a plurality of Americans are less likely to vote for candidates who support amnesty. (We’ve included links to both the NBC News/Wall St. Journal survey and the ABC News/Washington Post poll. Neither has a conservative perspective.)

And what did the GOP’s brilliant consultant class conclude from this resounding defeat?” Sessions asks. “They declared that the GOP must embrace amnesty. The Republican National Committee dutifully issued a report calling for a ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ that would inevitably increase the flow of low-skilled immigration, reducing the wages and living standards of the very voters whose trust the GOP had lost.”

Sessions said Republicans, by opposing amnesty, could make a “clean public break from the special-interest immigration lobby” and let “Democrats own — solely, completely, and exclusively — the unwise and unpopular policies they are pushing on these groups’ behalf.”

“Isn’t it time we made President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and each of their rank-and-file members defend their near-unanimous embrace of an immigration plan that is so contrary to the wishes and interests of the American people?” Sessions asked.

Take time to read Sen. Sessions well reasoned commentaryBecoming the Party of Workin National Review.

We hope Arizona’s four Republican Congressmen, Paul Gosar,(CD-4); Matt Salmon,(CD-5); David Schweikert, (CD-6); and Trent Franks, (CD-8), read it as well.

The poor excuses for U.S. Senators representing our state are solidly onboard the amnesty express. We’ve devoted an entire scrollable category to John McStench and his doppelganger Jeff the Flake.


Fla. loss signals future Dem defeats, worries McCain

March 13, 2014

McCain’s, Clinton’s, Jimmy Kimmel appear at ASU in attempt to soothe AZ Dem anxiety

The increasingly fanatical leftwing Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) gives an imitation of flexing its editorial muscle —- renown as decidedly flaccid —- as it goes about dispensing advice to Republicans. This is not the first time the dying newspaper has disingenuously offered the GOP its wisdom.

Feigning concern, Wednesday’s edition uses its sole editorial to instruct Republicans on the fine art of winning elections. It would be laughable if not so bizarre since all major state and Maricopa County offices and majorities in the Arizona House and Senate are held by Republicans. According to the guidance being doled out, the GOP should “solve the immigration crisis.“ (Read give the gift of amnesty to our invaders.) Second, we should “make peace with gay Americans.” (Read support same sex-marriage, though the “war” is a contrivance.) Finally we are advised by our dedicated mentor to “compete for young voters.” In the same breath, we are told that these voters “are liberal on social issues and lean more Democrat than Republican.”

What a shame the liberals missed the packed Maricopa County GOP Lincoln Day luncheon last Saturday and the impressive young people in attendanceJarrod Ogden received a standing ovation for his moving speech.

The newspaper’s dispensing of vacuous advice is nothing more than a smokescreen to cover liberal angst over Tuesday’s special election in Florida. The stunning defeat of Democrat Alex Sink by David Jolly, a lesser known Republican  —- who won despite being vastly outspent —- has produced Democrat shockwaves. Though this was a safe district for Obama in both previous presidential elections, disgust with Obamacare and global warming alarmism didn’t carry the day.  In fact the issues sunk the Democrat ship.

Long-range implications are massive for the Democrats.  Tampa’s special CD 13 election offers a vision of what the future holds in the coming mid-terms.

Bill Clinton even waded into the Florida mix, recording this campaign auto dialer for Alex Sink. The former president’s unmistakable Arkansas twang provided no lift to her sinking campaign.

Now it’s being reported that Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton are hosting a three-day conference of the Clinton Global Initiative University at ASU next week. They will be joined by Hillary’s close friend John McCain who has already signaled his 2016 support for her, his wife Cindy; Democrat former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, her husband Mark Kelly and comedian Jimmy Kimmel.

Kimmel isn’t actually needed to dispense comic relief. The McCain’s and Clinton’s should handle that very well. One of the topics on their agenda is climate change. It was a sure-fire winner in Florida.


Nearly 100 Floridians falsify information, vote illegally

March 11, 2014

 The 1992 Motor Voter law requires no proof of citizenship to register to vote

We are continually being told that reports of voter fraud are a non-issuea fabrication, at best; a means of voter suppression, at worst.

NBC News 2 in Florida found out differently as it decided to conduct its own two-month-long investigation. In some cases, potential jurors checked the box that they were non-citizens and unable to serve.  When their names were compared to the voter rolls, the NBC news investigative team got quite a surprise — or more correctly, nearly a hundred such surprises.

Here in Arizona, Attorney General Tom Horne has been relentless in his efforts to expose the existence of voter fraudeven personally arguing before the United States Supreme Court that Arizona should require voter registrants to provide evidence of citizenship.

Voter fraud is not unique to Florida, it is widespreadAs an example, this shocking video exposes the corruption in Minnesota.

Fading, agendized AZ Republic admits its irrelevancy

March 10, 2014

On life support, newspaper informs remaining readers it remains committed to radical agenda

Back in 2009 Seeing Red AZ likened the relentless diatribes in the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) to those of a nagging ex-wife, who made an art form of breathing new life into wearisome old arguments.

The failing newspaper, rife with seemingly endless layoffs, cutbacks and increasing reliance on students from ASU’s left-leaning Cronkite School of Journalism, recently informed nearly two dozen community reporters they would need to work from their laptops at Starbucks and McDonald’swhich supply free WiFi — and consider their cars to be their offices.

Yet despite the myriad problems, Sunday’s edition features a “letter to our readers” from John Zidich, the daily’s publisher, CEO and Randy Lovely, Senior VP of news and audience development, boasting about coming changes and “completely redesigned” digital content. The Republic is hemorrhaging subscribers and must move to a completely online version in order to survive, so they tout what they call enhanced “depth and quality” while acknowledging “reading habits continue to change.” So does the Republic, which has shrunken to anorexic proportions and, in large part,  purchases news feed from outside sources.

Rather than informing, the newspaper engages in persistent misinformation campaigns on a variety of subjects — most recent being SB 1062 which it refer to as a watershed issue in the “gay rights movement.”  In fact the Religious Freedom Restoration Act simply  reinforced the First Amendment’s free exercise of religion. It became a “gay” issue because it was calculatedly configured that way by the newspaper which cheered the threats and derision which it vigorously stirred.

Sunday’s edition featured an oversized profile of freshman state House member Demion Clinco, (LD -2) a 28-year-old Tucson Democrat who was appointed just weeks ago to fill the seat vacated by Andrea Dalessandro. (She was appointed to the state Senate after Linda Lopez resigned.)  Clinco‘s large profile was not serendipitous. He is identified as “openly gay“ and was quoted regarding…what else…? SB 1062.  “It’s pretty appalling to hear a dialogue about using religion to discriminate against both myself and my community,”  Clinco is so new he doesn’t even have a bio or photo up on the House of Representative’s web page.  That fact doesn’t keep him from being the newspaper’s latest darling.

In recent years, the leftist newspaper has gotten more radical in its approach, blatantly employing contemptible tactics to promote its myopic dual agendaColumnists and editorialists have donned their jackboots to facilitate marching in lockstep with the attack strategy — irrespective of the facts. If you’re looking for contrivances passing as reporting and promoting the illegal invasion of the United States, glorification of same sex “marriage and homosexuals or a relentless bashing of conservatives in which the term “tea party” is used as a pejorative, the Arizona República is the real deal.  

If you’re looking for actual news, you won’t find it in the dying Arizona Republic.  As an example, this morning’s edition front-pages a vacuous report titled, “An entire career spent in one city,” a puff piece about the new city manager. It continues for a full inside jump page. Not a word about the chaos in Ukraine and the far-reaching ramifications of Vladimir Putin’s attempts to reestablish the USSR.  


Union protects heroin-using K-6 grade school teacher

March 9, 2014

As expected, parents were outraged when they learned that an elementary school teacher had been shooting up heroin while on the job — not once, but twice. Though drug paraphernalia was found in the faculty rest room at Benjamin Cosor Elementary School in Fallsburg, N.Y, the teacher’s union representing the addict is hard at work preventing efforts to reveal his identity. The school’s young students are kindergarteners through sixth graders.

When police narrowed the list of those entering the lounge area by use of surveillance videos, the teachers union refused to allow them to be drug tested. Of the eight the police were investigating, only one non-union employee agreed to submit to testing.

School administrators are also in collusion shielding this criminal. A letter informing parents of the incident disclosed only that an “employee of the District found drugs and related paraphernalia in a school rest room.” It failed to mention that the drug was heroin, that it was found more than once and that it was discovered in the faculty-only area. The intentionally deceptive letter is not posted. However, there is a letter to parents regarding snow days — in both Spanish and English.

Along with Principal Mary Kate Stinehour’s message outlining the “fundamentals,” for students, is this timely edict including tips for parental involvement, which she calls the key to increased student achievement. “It is vital for our parents to be involved in monitoring their child’s progress.” The School Rules begin with “Respect yourself and others” and “Think before you act.”  But they pertain to students, not union teachers.

When parents demand information about drug addicts who are interacting with their children each day, they are stonewalled. This travesty occurred in New York, but it could have been anywhere. The National Education Union (NEA), the largest labor union in the United States, and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) are committed to implementing Obama’s Common Core and are staunch opponents of parental school choice through the use of vouchers. In 2013 the NEA spent $2,475,284 on lobbying efforts alone. The Center for Responsive Politics reveals the group’s expenditures were overwhelmingly made in support of Democrats. Worthy of note, the NEA also lobbies on behalf of “immigration.

AZ Republic’s hit pieces: Have you noticed a pattern?

March 4, 2014

Fishy_Arizona_Republic

Conservatives repeatedly slammed, mischaracterized

It’s no secret the Arizona Republic is a leftward-lurching, agendized newspaper.  Most often the struggling daily concentrates its energies on promoting legalization of America’s illegal invaders and normalizing homosexuality. But superseding all else is its cause célèbre — advancing the Democrat party and its candidates.  It is via that method, after all, that the other issues move forward.

A couple of weeks ago a multi-page, fabricated exposé of Republican political consultant Sean Noble was Page One material. If disinterested readers skipped past it, they saw all that was needed to get the daily’s nefarious point across.  Accompanying his mega-size photo was the sinister title, “The Dark Money Man: Sean Noble, Koch cash and Politics.” 

Suddenly Noble transmogrified into evil personified. Despite the Republic’s usage of a ProPublica cut and paste smear passing as a “report”— actually containing nothing of substance, Noble didn’t  appear less than his name implies. What was missing was such disclosure from the Republic and the omission that ProPublica is a recipient of a massive funding stream from billionaire leftist George Soros with tentacles to radical Media Matters. Yet ProPublica innocently calls itself “an independent, non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest.”

Hogwash.

On Sunday it was Cathi Herrod’s turn to be eviscerated. Herrod is the president of the conservative Center for Arizona Policy which promotes and defends the foundational values of life, marriage, family, and religious liberty. She is also an effective lobbyist for those issues. That makes her ripe for a barrage of attacks by the daily. Her above the fold, Page One portrayal was titled, “A Political Force Behind the Scenes; Activist wields influence on Ariz. Laws.”

Let’s hope so.

The newspaper is now shining its high beam distortion campaign on state Rep. John Kavanagh, (LD-8).The conservative lawmaker has been the subject of articles, columns and even an editorial which actually employed the word “Yuck” throughout — regarding his participation in a roast of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Kavanagh’s participation — he was one of several “roasters” —  at the  private dinner wrapping up the Western Conservative Conference in Phoenix, is obviously the lynchpin.  The newspaper despises Arpaio. A banquet room full of his friends and admirers poking fun at him, would bring on teeth gnashing at the Republic. So now the well respected John Kavanagh is being savaged.

The leftist newspaper became emboldened after contributing to the bogus upheaval playing out in tandem with suspect redistricting that resulted in Russell Pearce’s loss of his district seat and the senate presidency. He was defeated by a one-termer, but that was of no consequence to the Republic.  They simply wanted Pearce, the architect of SB 1070, out.

Attorney General Tom Horne is now in the daily’s sights. While Superintendent of Public Instruction, he successfully fought the racist and anti-American MAS program in Tucson Unified School District. As Attorney General he has been a standout, but not one of their choosing. Conservative Horne urged the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse a Ninth Circuit ruling, arguing that Arizona has a right to deny Medicaid funding to abortion providers. Planned Parenthood is scheduled to receive more than $1.5 billion in Medicaid subsidies

What do Noble, Herrod, Arpaio, Kavanagh, Pearce and Horne all have in common? They are independent thinking, conservative Republicans, who don’t take their marching orders from the editorial board of the dying newspaper or the squishy party establishment elites, earning them attacks from the daily — which wants to see all of the top offices led by Democrats. When they endorse a Republican it will be a RINO or the weakest candidate, positioning the Democrat to win the general.

This isn’t rocket science.

“I knew I was being fed a line of BS when…”

February 17, 2014

Arizona República’s latest con 

E.J. Montini is a left-wing columnist often appropriately residing on the left side of the front of the Valley Section in the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic). His pieces tend toward sappiness, but always slinging the radical party line of his agendized employer and often in unison with his cohort columnist Laurie Roberts, illusory illustrator Steve Benson, open-borders editorialists and the crew of pro-amnesty hacks posing as journalists at the newspaper. Amid the axing of long timers and the staff cutbacks, those looking retirement squarely in the eye are doing their level best to carry the República’s water until the last light is switched off.

In Sunday’s edition, the desperation is both inane and palpable. Online Montini’s column is titled, “I knew Arizona was home when…”

It is accompanied by this odd EDITOR’S NOTE: 

Many of us are transplants from other places. We might live here, but someplace else is home. That is, until that moment when our copper-colored state becomes part of our identity. We’re launching a new A-section page in The Republic at the end of March that will feature stories that are uplifting, local, inspiring and empowering. And we need your help. Send us your moments, 300-word essays on the topic “I knew Arizona was home when …

It might’ve been when your first child was born. When you voted for local elections for the first time. When a spectacular sunset made you stop in your tracks. We want to know what it was for you. E-mail your 300 words and a photo of yourself, if you’d like.”

The unnamed editor promises to “feature some of the best essays on our upcoming good-news page” in the hardcopy edition of the newspaper, as well as online and on its social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter.

Initially the scheme sounds suspiciously as though the editorial board is eliciting the daily’s few remaining readers to do the work paid staff previously handled — possibly signaling another round of layoffs? Then reality hits. This topic reeks of a setup ‘enlightenment piece’ featuring ‘Aha! Moments’ to instill in readers the idea that they have a lot in common with illegal aliens.

“Awesome!” declares the editor’s imaginary deadhead. “You’re from Chihuahua? I’m from Pittsburgh!  And look, we both have children born in Phoenix and we’re voting here in Arizona’s elections for the first time!”

Get it?  Or should we say, “Comprende?”

 


Debunking the DREAMer myth

February 15, 2014

Ann Coulter has done it again.

Asking the question, “Did I move? Coulter addresses the lunacy driving the House Republicans’ “Standards for Immigration Reform,” and zones in on what she correctly describes as “this fat, honking nonsense: One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents.”

Ann Coulter’s commentary is stunning in its wisdom. After you read this column, consider sending the link to your family and friends. It’s guaranteed to make them think and view the inane arguments for legalizing illegals through a clearer lens. She also uses the more accurate figure of 30 million rather than the 10-11 million glibly tossed around for the past decade by amnesty proponents.

Did I move? is posted in the conservative publication Human Events, where Ann Coulter serves as legal correspondent.

Treat yourself to her stellar columns, on a wide range of topics, which are archived here.

These two are particular favorites relating to the subject of illegal immigration:

Amnesty advocates threaten reprisals against GOP

February 13, 2014

Brassy illegals and their cohorts wage war on Republicans

Reporter Dan Nowicki’s Page One article in the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) carries a headline with the fierce warning, “Migrant activists threaten political payback.”

The “migrants” are actually illegals aliens, led by their radical activist promoters, who make a living in their quest to undermine our country. But Nowicki adheres to the new AP Stylebook standards, which no longer sanction the term ‘illegal immigrant’ or the use of ‘illegal’ to describe a person.”

The two-page report, based on this provocative press release, forewarns of retaliatory actions aimed at unseating Congressional Republicans who have failed to give the gift of amnesty to our nation’s estimated 30 million invaders.

Kudos to Nowicki for his honesty in describing the Campaign for Community Change as “left-leaning,” though “extremist” would have been more accurate.  The following is a quote from Kica Matos, the group’s director of the antagonistically titled “immigrant rights and racial justice” division.

Persuasion only goes so far, and now, with Speaker Boehner casting doubt that he can actually deliver immigration reform, FIRM (Fair Immigration Reform Movement) is switching tactics from persuasion to punishment,” said Kica Matos, director for immigrant rights and racial justice at the left-leaning Campaign for Community Change.

“So, let me just be clear about one thing: From now on, any lawmaker who does not support comprehensive immigration reform should expect relentless and constant confrontations that will escalate until they agree to support immigration reform.”

Matos said the group will target Republicans in their home districts and in the halls of Congress. And the political retribution will even extend to potentially vulnerable House Republicans in swing districts with significant Hispanic populations who already are on the record as backing immigration reform.

“No Republican is safe,” Matos threatened.

This boot-quaker of a warning led to a Google search which turned up a New York Times wedding announcement, revealing that the issuer of intimidation and her husband, both lawyers, met at a Washington D.C. conference of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. And wouldn’t you know — both claim to “share a passion for, and are driven by, a sense of justice.”

That “passion” just doesn’t extend to American citizens, who have every right to expect adherence to the constitutionally enshrined laws of the land and respect for our sovereign nation’s border.
