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.

BP agents warn CA protesters “it’s going to get ugly”

Feds bringing riot squad against Americans protesting illegal invasion

Breitbart Texas reports that federal agents plan to arrive in Murrieta, Calif. today with riot gear to ensure that another busload of our invaders makes it to the facility housing countless illegals arriving from Central America.  

As illegal aliens continue to flood across the U.S./Mexico border, federal authorities are attempting to relocate them from South Texas to housing facilities in states throughout the nation —– Arizona, among them. Recently a large number of furious protesters in the small California town of Murrieta, blocked three buses full of foreign nationals from being dumped off in their town. Now it is being reported that federal agents plan to arrive in Murrieta on Monday with riot gear to ensure that other busloads make it to the housing facility. 

The media refer to those invading our nation as “migrants,” “undocumented” or inaccurately as “immigrants,” as though they have entered the United States legally, applying for citizenship through the proper channels. Last April we noted in “Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press,” that the AP Stylebook no longer sanctions the term ‘illegal immigrant’ or the use of ‘illegal’ to describe a person. Instead, it says that ‘illegal’ should describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally.” In December 2010 Seeing Red AZ reported that the Diversity Committee of the Society of Professional Journalists was calling on news reporters nationwide to stop using the term “illegal immigrant” in their news coverage. 

And why not? What is the language pertaining to illegal immigration issues if not fluid? Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel have now been ordered to alter the language they use to identify illegal immigrant children crossing the border alone as “UACs” (unaccompanied alien children).  Instead they are to be referred to as simply “unaccompanied children” in official correspondence —- “all lower case” —- according to an internal ICE email obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies.

We are not only obliged to welcome our invaders, but we must do so  in the most hospitable of terms.

Here at Seeing Red AZ, fixated on meticulous definitions, we will continue to use the clearly definitive term “illegal alien.”

From October 1 to June 15, more than 52,000 unaccompanied alien children have crossed the border into the U.S. 

Meanwhile, American citizens, growing stronger in their opposition to the masses of illegal invaders being relocated to their communities, are constrained from expressing their righteous rage over losing this extraordinary country, and having to foot the bill for absorbing throngs of illiterate, diseased and impoverished illegal aliens. 

Yes. Illegal aliens.

And to deal with that fury, government agents warn us —- not the invaders —- it will “get ugly,” as they come after us with riot gear.

Invasion USA: The tsunami of illegals

July 6, 2014

In a pre-election speech given on Oct. 30, 2008 Barack Obama promised he intended to fundamentally transform America. He is well on his way. Anyone who looked closely at the man and the influences that shaped who he would become, risked being called a racist, a nativist, a bigot and a redneck yahoo. He was the messiah everyone was waiting for.

The ruins of American foreign policy are not likely to catch the attention of a culture drunk on the entertainment of the trivial, the trifling and the unimportant. But everybody begins to notice when the chaos comes close, when those responsible for monitoring the border begin to tremble and sag under the weight of a tsunami of illegal immigration. The scary implications for the future of the exceptional nation begins to weigh on Congress.

This week, a Texas congressman who does not have the luxury of looking the other way because he sees trouble in every direction he looks, said what the nice people think must never be said. The tsunami will change everything.

“Either we’re going to enforce our laws and remain strong, economically or otherwise, or we ignore the rule of law and go to being a Third World country,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican, told Fox News. “You’ve got to follow the law. You cannot bring hundreds of thousands of people in this country without destroying the country. Then there’s no place that people can dream about coming.”

Read editor emeritus Wesley Pruden’s complete Washington Times article “An immigrant surge en route to a Third World USA“— This is the ‘fundamental transformation’ Obama promised

Knowledge is power. If you are concerned about the future of our great country, Pruden’s commentary, excerpted here, is definitely a worthy read.

Then make time for this updated version of immigration author and journalist Roy Beck’s powerful presentation of data compiled from the World Bank and U.S. Census Bureau. The 1996 version of this immigration gumballs presentation has been one of the most viewed immigration policy presentations on the internet. Watch it and you’ll see why:

 


Eric Cantor’s greater purpose: Forces prioritizing constituents over illegals

July 5, 2014

Cantor’s “term limit” halts the amnesty con

David Brat’s stunning triumph over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is analyzed in this New York magazine article by Jonathan Chait.  It carries the catchy title, “Killer of Immigration Reform Identified As David Brat.”

Congressional shenanigans are laid bare as it is noted that a majority of Republicans were poised to give a private go-ahead to bring an amnesty bill to the floor. As trickery goes, this was blockbuster quality. Most of them would then righteously vote against such a measure, allowing Democrats to supply the votes necessary for passage —- thereby insulating themselves against any culpability from enraged constituents.

After last month’s upset in the Virginia congressional primary election, those “hope-yes-vote-no Republicans” are too fearful to proceed with such a ruse —- worried that conservative David Brat’s surprise victory may turn out to be more consequential than anybody thought at the time

An economics professor, new U.S. Rep. Brat is ideally positioned to address a key issue of his campaign: the nation’s massive deficit. But even more, his triumphal political coup over a leading establishment insider has caused the Washington elites to take notice of us. 

Yes, we are out here. We pay attention. We pay your salary. We are beyond angry at being conned on the invasion of our nation. We vote.


Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Send troops to the border

June 30, 2014

  “….at least I know where the border is!”

Sunday’s Drudge Report headlines our own Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s call for Barack Obama to deploy the U.S. military to the Mexican border to work bilaterally in controlling the flood of illegal aliens crossing into the United States.

Listen (click on audio bar at 10:54) to hear Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio as he is interviewed by Aaron Klein Investigative Radio on The Answer, 970 AM New York — transmitted across the globe from Tel Aviv. 

Arpaio says, “If we are worried about the danger, then I would send the military across the border, work with their military bilaterally and get the job done. That’s what I would do and we’d clean up this mess.”

Our no-nonsense sheriff, renown for his tough stance on illegal immigration, was asked how he would help clean up the immigration mess if he were advising the White House. He responded unequivocally, “Why do they have to go to court? The minute they cross the border, put them on an airplane and send them back.”

“I spent many, many years as a regional director in Mexico City, Central, and South America, also I was the head of the DEA in Texas and Arizona.” Arpaio added, “ So at least I know where the border is!”

I would go back to what I did in Mexico. We were operational. We let agents carry guns. We worked right along with the Mexican authorities, locking up drug peddlers….worked together and got things done.

Arpaio noted that 38 percent of illegal-alien inmates in his Maricopa County jails who are turned over to federal authorities for violating immigration law return “over and over again on various criminal charges, which violates their [the fed’s] own policy and criteria that they are supposed to be deported.”

“Either they [convicted illegal alien felons] are coming across that border multiple times or they are being dumped on the streets of Arizona,” he said.

WND also carries the linked broadcast.

An exasperated Arpaio, referring to the deluge of unaccompanied minors flooding across the southern border, recently told Fox News’ Sean Hannity, “You talk about the Border Patrol, they’re too busy changing diapers and not going after dope peddlers and illegal immigrants.”

Border Patrol agents are allegedly being told that if they speak out about the situation, they will be disciplined or charged with a crime.


Nancy Pelosi: Illegal invasion is “an opportunity”

June 28, 2014

Grandma of 9 wishes she could take all the bright-eyed children home with her

In a stunning example of radically liberal thinking, far-left party hack Nancy Pelosi —- speaking Saturday at a press conference at a temporary border holding facility —- has declared the unchecked invasion of the United States is merely an “opportunity, not a crisis.“  Essentially declaring American sovereignty irrelevant, Pelosi stated, “This is a community, with a border going through it.”

Adding more of  her own peculiar brand of hypocrisy, she wished aloud that she could take the thousands of children flooding over our southern border, “home with her.”

No one is stopping her.

Money certainly wouldn’t be an issue. Pelosi’s number 15 on Roll Call’s list of wealthiest members of Congress, with a minimum net worth of $24.45 million.

Using her soft-toned Harry Reid voice, California Democrat Pelosi preferred to characterize this cataclysmic invasion, of our nation not  as a crisis, but as a “opportunity.”

According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, in the past fiscal year more than 52,000 unaccompanied minors have crossed the border into the United States through Mexico. Although many are Mexican nationals, the majority in this recent flood are Central Americans, arriving from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

Take a look at this updated list of Border Patrol numbers as of June 15, 2014.


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.

The crucial, fact-filled Center for Immigration Studies report can be read here

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.


AZ República’s Phil Boas outs SOS candidate Michele Reagan

June 23, 2014

Michele Reagan’s duplicity appears to be “jarring” editorial board —- again

Editorial page editor and amnesty supporter Phil Boas is late to the political reality table with his Quick Hit titled, “Reagan taking hard line on migrants but is a moderate.”

He writes, “Despite her latest pose, Secretary of State candidate Michele Reagan is an immigration moderate. Understanding the mess SB 1070 created, Reagan worked largely behind the scenes to kill five follow-up immigration bills. If leading Republicans such as U.S, Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake could recast themselves as border hardliners to win primary elections, it’s no surprise down-ballot Republicans such as Reagan would do the same.”

In this March 2011 post, “Meet Arizona’s Benedict Arnolds,”Seeing Red AZ linked to the five bills on which Michele Reagan and a group of other colluding Republicrats joined with the united Democrat bloc in the state senate, voting against bills intended to address the continued invasion of our state and country by illegal aliens. In the years since, many of the problems which could have been addressed have significantly exacerbated.

We’ve long been aware of Michele Reagan’s leftist proclivities, which is why we are strong supporters of Wil Cardon in the race for Secretary of State  —- a ”sleeper” post that is often the direct route to the governor’s office. For an overview of how often this line of ascension, which enabled Jan Brewer to succeed Janet Napolitano, has historically played out, read the bold type in this link.

As to Boas’ disappointment in Sens. McCain and Flake recasting themselves as “border hardliners,” we noted in this 2011 post, “Oops — Jeff Flake’s crown slips as he sinks to mere McPolitician,”that the  Arizona Republic’s Doug MacEachern was editorially sputtering out of control when the duplicitous Jeff Flake fell from grace as the newspaper’s anointed amnesty advocate after declaring his candidacy for the U.S. Senate. Flake’s politically expedient change of heart, in which he emulated both McCain and his own predecessor Kyl —- who after crafting these (linked) campaign ads giving lip service to “securing the border,” reverted to their previous amnesty stance on legalizing millions of illegal aliens immediately after the ballots were counted.  It was their fraudulent pre-election positions that were “jarring” to those at the newspaper.

It’s surprising that Phil Boas wouldn’t have realized Michele Reagan is cut from the same McCloth.
