Obviously the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) wants to shield its readers from the horrific details of a rape perpetrated on a 4-year-old preschooler. That could be the only discernable reason why the recent report omits pertinent information about Fernando Almanza, the child rapist.
Almanza, 51, — even his age was omitted from the newspaper’s scant account, a fact we found on the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office website — was convicted by a Pinal County jury which found him guilty in the Oct. 2011 rape of the little girl at the Winkelman, AZ ranch where he was employed as a ranch hand. Almanza will be in court on Nov. 8, where he faces a life sentence with the possibility of parole after 35 years. At 5’10 and 190 lbs. the small child was no match for this vicious pervert.
Conspicuously missing from the report is the status of Almanza. Inquiring minds are interested in his legal standing. Is this sterling character a U.S. citizen or an illegal alien?
The same information was missing regarding the murderers of 4-year-old Betzy Rodriguez-Centeno, who died in Phoenix recently. Her 19-year-old mother Melissa Centeno admitted to police she and her boyfriend Sergio Luis Ortiz 22, could be “heavy handed” when disciplining the little girl. And wouldn’t you know? There was another child in the home who was removed by authorities. The dedicated mother, placing the welfare of her boyfriend over that of her dying child, did not seek medical attention for her savagely beaten daughter, fearing the bruises would be discovered.
Are we to assume that these fine folks are American citizens or might they illegally have slipped into the United States to continue their lawlessness? Will we ever know? If the reports appear in the pages of the pro-illegal Periódico de la República de Arizona, the answer is ‘probably not.’ And where is the newspaper’s child advocate Laurie Roberts, whose voice rightfully rings loud and clear in such cases? Her silence raises more than a few suspicions.
For a more reasoned perspective, we urge you to take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with CIS’s excellent article, The Myth of the “Otherwise Law-Abiding” Illegal Alien, written by Jon Feere.
On occasion we serve our readers a distasteful dose of the far left, Republican-hating spew from the Arizona Republic’s tightly wound Linda Valdez. The intent is to remind those who think there are politically redeemable qualities to be found in even the most radical liberal — what extremist views actually look like.
Here, the epitome of the left’s outer “fringe” derides Republicans in her recent column: “GOP motto: Fringe “R” Us.”
According to open-borders Socialist Valdez, who believes government can do better for us than we can do for ourselves, conservatives qualify as “the Flat-Earth crowd.” She claims we heartlessly wage an “assault against the sick, the hungry and the young.” Undoubtedly she also believes we hate the healthy, well-fed, and elderly. Omitted from her litany are the illegal invaders she prefers to American citizens.
Obviously she just ran out of column inches in the incredibly shrinking, increasingly irrelevant newspaper to which she telecommutes her reckless fury, or she would have included the complete list.
This is an example of her recent rage against “White, male, conservative Republicans” whom she targeted as “Mastodons to bring down.” Most often she has used her perch at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) to irrationally advocate on behalf of illegal foreign hordes.
Barack Obama’s approval rating has plunged to an “all-time low,” according to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Wednesday evening. The WSJ headline screams, More Voters Turn on Obama —President’s Approval Hits New Low in Poll as Discontent Extends Beyond GOP.”
Obama is suffering from a series of missteps, but most importantly, an American public that is increasingly losing confidence in his leadership. Among a sampling of 800 registered voters, Obama’s approval rating of 47% is actually topped by his disapproval rating of 48%.
Amid the bungled healthcare rollout and cancellation of millions of insurance policies of previously insured Americans, Obama’s leadership struggles took root with the IRS Benghazi investigations, followed by the embarrassing Edward Snowden NSA leaks, and Obama’s indecision on whether to attack Syria. The last straw for many Americans was the exposure of his repeated and blatant lies about keeping your health care plan and your doctor, (montage video) when it turns out just the opposite is true.
The latest poll shows that 70% believe the country is on the wrong track, with Congress more unpopular than previously reported, as 74% blame Congress for “contributing to problems,” while only 17% think Congress “actually works to solve them.” Even more stunning is the fact that among those polled, 63% reported “they would prefer to see a new member of Congress represent them”. Typically those who express overall dissatisfaction with Congress tend to be satisfied with their own representation. The new findings indicate that is no longer the case.
McCain frets, “House should just pass something.”
John McCain’s longtime support of amnesty has traveled a road mired with twists and turns. There was the blatant trickery evidenced by his border stroll with Sheriff Paul Babeu during the 2010 senate campaign as he veered right, promising to “complete the danged fence.” That stance was only useful to get him back in Washington to hop back on the amnesty train within days.
In July, in a rare moment of candor at an immigration forum with AFL-CIO unionists McCain admitted his vote to spend $46 billion on new border security measures and double the size of the Border Patrol was simply a subterfuge intended to secure Republican votes. “I’ll give you a little straight talk,” the forked-tongued one said. “We don’t need 20,000 additional border patrol agents,” as he called a path to citizenship “a fundamental element” of his latest amnesty con. Singling out border security parts as an example, he said, “The rest of it could be adjusted.”
McCain’s protégé Jeff Flake worked the same short-term politically expedient reversal as a senate candidate.
Now Breitbart’s Tony Lee reports that John McCain has given the clearest indication that proponents of amnesty may make their strongest push to get legislation passed next year after House Republicans make it through their primaries and are safely ensconced — and unanswerable to constituents — for another term.
“I think conventional wisdom is that time is not on our side,” McCain recently told reporters after an event in Chicago. “But there are a number of members of Congress who have primaries and when those primaries are done, they may be more inclined to address the issue of comprehensive immigration reform.”
“It will not gain us a single Republican voter,” McCain admitted. “But what it will do for the Republican Party is it will allow us to compete for the Hispanic vote. It will give us a playing field where we can argue for lower taxes, less regulation, smaller government, strong military, etcetera. But if we don’t pass it, we will not compete for the Hispanic vote.”
Apparently McCain has missed these incisive columns:
Phyllis Schlafly’s “Amnesty Is Republican Party Suicide.”
Ann Coulter’s “Hispanicked GOP Elite: They’ll Respect Us In The Morning.”
Despite the Congressional Budget Office’s findings that the Senate’s amnesty bill would lower the wages of working class Americans, House Republicans are reportedly working on “piecemeal” legislation to eventually get to conference with the Senate — following McCain’s advice that the House should just “pass something.” Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is now partnering with Jeff Flake’s congressional amnesty cohort Luis Gutierrez on legislation intending to legalize all of the country’s illegal aliens.
Get ready for the latest amnesty-pushing scam. This one, scheduled to begin on Capitol Hill today, has long and suspect tentacles and features heavy-weight, big money players. Billed as a national “fly-in“ of what it deceptively calls “conservatives,” its aim is to strong-arm House Republicans to cave on amnesty through intense lobbying and assurances of campaign infu$ion$ in advance of the upcoming elections.
Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle does a fine job of exposing the George Soros-funded National Immigration Forum (NIF) led by dedicated and radical amnesty proponent, Ali Noorani. The Berkeley educated, American-born son of Pakistani immigrants, has been at the center of every major legislative and policy debate related to immigration since 1982. Noorani claims “the broad collection coming to Washington represents ‘the conservative base of the Republican Party.’”
Don’t believe it.
This latest shamnesty scheme is planned to coincide with Barack Obama’s renewed push against House conservatives. NIF is reportedly working with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s group FWD.US, and New York mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Partnership for a New American Economy. These leftists, like Soros, are openly contemptuous of the rule of law.
Investigative reporter Matthew Vadum writing for FrontPage magazine provides an exceptional overview of what we are facing in “George Soros’s Illegal Alien Guerrilla Activists.” Vadum’s entire fact-filled report is a must read, though he succinctly sums up the ultimate end game with these words:
‘Starry-eyed Republicans think that backing amnesty will somehow win their party Latino votes but they never seem to factor in the exodus of conservative Republican voters their support of the legislation will all but guarantee. An added benefit, from the Left’s perspective, is the proposed mass amnesty would destroy once and for all the Republican Party. Democrats, on the other hand, are gunning for the legislation because it assures them a permanent leftist majority.’
This past Friday Seeing Red AZ wrote Tech industry honchos intensify push for amnesty, exposing the mind-boggling connections behind FWD.US.
George Soros is also tightly connected to Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.US push for amnesty. The close circle appears familial. Bloomberg reports that Zuckerberg hired Soros’ former chief financial strategist Stanley Druckenmiller — who worked in that capacity for extreme leftist billionaire Soros for over a decade. And where Soros lurks, Grover Norquist is close by. Walid Shoebat reveals what he refers to as Norquist’s “treason.”
The U.S. House of Representatives will be voting on amnesty. We have already been betrayed by the Senate. Call your Republican Representatives. Their contact information is here. We pay their salaries and they are called “Representatives” because they are supposed to represent us, not foreign invaders in our country illegally.
Lots to read today. We urge you to make the time. Knowledge is power.
McGang of 8 caper tanking 2016 aspirations; now talks “piecemeal approach”
Sen. Marco Rubio appears to be a political casualty of following John McCain, lemming-like, off the amnesty cliff as a member of the so-called Gang of 8. Just months ago, the brash, young Florida Republican was surging in the polls. Now he is barely sucking oxygen. Earlier this month, the conservative Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit presidential straw poll pummeled Rubio, throwing him a mere five percent of the vote. In the Oct. 22, WMUR Granite State Poll, Rubio tied for seventh place with just 4 percent of GOP voters saying they would support him.
In the following video Rubio talks about “solving immigration” saying, “but I don’t think we should not do anything because we can not do everything….I continue to believe that a series of sequential individual bills is the best way, the ideal way, to reform to our immigration system,” he says.
Americans have a right to expect those entering our sovereign nation to do so respectfully and legally. That is the ideal way to support our generous immigration policies, Mr. Rubio. There is no need for “reform.”
As an example, compare the United States to other developed nations* on the single issue of birthright citizenship. Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, France, India, Malta, Great Britain and Portugal have all repealed their Birthright Citizenship laws — the automatic granting of citizenship to children of tourists or illegal aliens born within a nation’s borders or territories.

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?
Christine Jones, 45, is an arrogant embarrassment. Along with her husband Gary Dean Jones, she has made numerous political campaign contributions to Democrats and RINOs. Now the former Go Daddy honcho, who has never shown her face within the GOP party in any meaningful way, is running as a Republican in the Arizona 2014 gubernatorial race.
Such egotism is rightly defined as audacious.
Listen as Republican poser Jones, better known for her racy Go Daddy ads* than any political expertise or involvement, cluelessly says illegals are crossing the Rio Grande to enter Arizona. Displaying her inability to grasp issues, she also thinks Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is putting water out to aid the illegals crossers invading our country.
Rather than run for governor, she’d do well to take a remedial course in geography. The Rio Grande doesn’t touch Arizona, Ms. Jones. It begins the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado, then flows south through New Mexico, forming the natural border between Texas and the nation of Mexico as it moves southeast to the Gulf of Mexico.
Scroll through this revealing list to see the many key liberals such as DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz who were the recipients of Go Daddy PAC contributions. Christine Jones was also a key high dollar bundler for John McCain.

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.
