“Shining city on the hill” now presided over by incompetent Obama

August 30, 2014

Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah warns the West will be jihadists’ next target unless “rapid” action is taken

Throughout his political career, President Ronald Reagan exuded optimism and his speeches invoked his recognition of America’s greatness. The message was consistent: America was “a shining city on a hill,” and its promise, as well as those of its citizens, remained limitless.

Barack Obama has a much different vision. He began his presidency by apologizing for America’s excellence. Where Reagan reveled in our greatness, Obama has recoiled from it. He has repeatedly and deferentially bowed to repressive dictators, Muslim royals and tyrants.

Rather than exemplifying national strength, he publicly conveys weakness. As radical Islamic extremists savagely behead an American journalist, Christian women and children and vow to decimate American cities, Obama has cut our defense budget to pre-World War II levels. And in the face of ISIS terrorist swagger, Obama admits we have no coherent strategy for dealing with these fanatical and murderous international thugs who follow the Quranic 47:4 imperative to “strike the necks” of unbelievers.

Within a day of delivering his “no strategy” message, Obama has returned to his second favorite activity after playing golf —- fundraising. He was out raising money among the elite of New York and Rhode Island willing to pay up to $32,400 for the pleasure of funding Democrats as they head into the November election.

Clearly the “shining city on the hill” is now presided over by a man the Beatles foresaw in 1967.

The citizens of the UK can be proud of their leader who uses unequivocal language in addressing the pressing problems facing the free world. British Prime Minister David Cameron recently gave a superb speech —- one Barack Obama should have given if he was less politically inept.

Fox News reports PM Cameron announced his government’s decision to raise the UK terrorism threat level to “severe,” and implement a series of measures to combat the Islamist threat within Britain itself, including tough new measures against British-born, self-styled “jihadists,” hundreds of whom have traveled to Iraq and Syria in recent months to fight with ISIS.

Cameron addressed the Islamist menace head-on, declaring that “the root cause of this threat to our security is clear: it is a poisonous ideology of Islamic extremism that is condemned by all states.”

In contrast, President Obama’s remarks to the White House press corps Thursday were weak-kneed, meandering and confused, sending mixed messages both to America’s enemies and the American people. Watch CBS News clip here.


Have you heard? The USA is “the other Mexico”

August 28, 2014

In the lead-up to Tuesday’s Primary Election some of us have put national news on the back-burner. International news has been pushed even further to the rear. It often seems the news is so dire and happening in regions so remote that the inclination is to tune it out.

With Islamic terrorists warning that they have the destruction of American cities in their sights, apathy is a luxury we can no longer afford. When FEMA  promotes the website  Ready.gov urging preparedness plans and food storage for American families for cases ranging from natural disasters to various terrorist hazards, the alarm meter rises past a casual concern.

The invasion of the United States by hordes of illegals has reached crisis proportions, and living in the border state of Arizona, we are keenly aware of its ramifications.

Earlier this week in Los Angeles, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto called on other states to “evolve” like California so the United States can be more like his home country. Standing alongside LA Mayor Eric Garcetti and Gov. Jerry Brown, Pena Nieto called for amnesty legislation and open borders while criticizing governors who have taken strong positions against illegal immigration.

Speaking of the United States, the Los Angeles Times reports that Pena Nieto declared, “This is the other Mexico,” which “is property to an estimated [fallacious figure of] 11 million Mexican immigrants.” He pompously pledged to reduce wait times at border crossings and faster services at Mexican consulates across the United States, saying he has an obligation to serve all Mexicans, regardless of where they live. Brown joined in, saying “You’re all welcome in California.”

Pena Nieto thanked California officials for embracing Mexican nationals, citing measures that extend state benefits to illegals. He presented scholarships to several Mexican national students enrolled at state universities.

Since Obama enacted his executive order amnesty for illegals in 2012, the number of illegal juveniles —- nearly 90% of whom are teenagers, including gang members —- has dramatically spiked. Since October 2013, nearly 63,000 illegals have been detained, having been lured by the carrot of amnesty. Most of this newer crop are Central Americans who have easily slipped through Mexico, as Obama vows another round of executive amnesty along with work permits to five million more illegals —- as American citizens continue to struggle with staggering unemployment.

In the sanctuary state of California, radical leftist Brown has granted illegals driver’s licenses and signed the California DREAM Act. Pena Nieto thanked Brown for his generosity toward illegal immigrants and called on other governors to follow suit, criticizing those who oppose open borders as “unethical.”  Along with the Mexicans and Central Americans, “special-interest aliens” –— including those from Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Pakistan, Cuba, Brazil, Ecuador, China, Russia, Yemen, Albania, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan, have breached our sovereign border via Mexico, though the threat seems not to faze those in charge.

Prof. Victor Davis Hanson wrote his acclaimed book Mexifornia: A State of Becoming in 2003. In this City Journal article Mexifornia, Five Years Later he details the ill effects being even worse than he imagined in his book’s blunt assessment. Who could ever have envisioned the implausible occurrences that have followed?

This recent Pew survey indicates 34% of Mexico’s citizens hope to move to U.S. If this invasion is allowed to continue, will soon turn into the Third World country they are running from.


Arkansas Dem uses McCain to aid reelection bid

August 10, 2014

Republicans chances of recapturing the U.S. Senate increase

When a far left Democrat such as Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor uses his campaign advertising to offer quotes from John McCain to distinguish himself from U.S. Rep Tom Cotton, his conservative Republican opponent, it’s clear there is a trouble in Liberalville.

Pryor ‘s latest ad features McCain’s quote that “anyone who calls it amnesty is not being intellectually honest,” fires back at a recent Cotton campaign ad, saying Pryor “voted for amnesty and citizenship for illegals.”

“Mark Pryor voted the same way as John McCain and many other Republican senators,” Pryor’s ad defends. “Secure the border first.”

Very McCainesque, indeed.

For border state Arizonans, the unanswered question has always been, “First before what?” The illegal invasion of our sovereign nation looms as a major 2014 campaign issue even in places as far removed from the border as Arkansas —- a state that is rapidly trending red.

How telling is it that Pryor, the sole remaining Dem in the state’s congressional delegation resorts to bragging of his alignment with McCain on such a key issue in this squeaker of a race?

U.S. Rep. Cotton is a genuinely impressive. He holds undergrad and law degrees from Harvard, did a stint at the Claremont Graduate University —- including a Publius fellowship in conservative political thought at the Claremont Institute —- completed a federal clerkship, and served two tours of combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Cotton left the Army with the rank of captain and numerous medals including a Bronze Star.

Real Clear Politics provides the most recent polling, Scroll down to see the latest encouraging numbers in what is emerging as a very winnable race. Cotton, 37, an eloquent conservative spokesman is ahead in most polls.

Human Events does the math, writing, “Today, there are 45 Republican Senators and the GOP needs a net gain of six seats to win control of the 114th Congress in January 2015. But winning a bare majority in 2014 is not enough. Republicans need to pick up enough seats in 2014 to ensure they have 51 or more Senators after the 2016 election where Republicans will defend potentially vulnerable Senate seats won in the GOP landslide year of 2010.

If Republicans win six seats they will control the House and Senate for two years but still face the Obama veto for both years. But if they capture the nine seats needed to be comfortable that GOP control of congress would continue in 2017 and 2018 then, if they are joined by a Republican President after the 2016 election, they can begin undoing much of the damage of the past eight years and enact the Ryan budget plan that begins the U-turn away from our present path to socialism. That is winning.”

Sure thing!


Border chaos Number One issue with Americans

August 2, 2014

One in six say immigration top U.S. problem

 A snapshot of what is driving elections across the United States is contained in the upward spiraling of concern over the illegal invasion. The increasing alarm is obvious in responses to the recent Gallup poll question posed to over a thousand adults, “What do you think is the most important problem facing this country today?

In January of this year, just 3 percent of respondents answered “immigration or illegal aliens.”  That number rose to 5 percent in June.  Just one month later the same questioned was asked.  In July fully 17 percent of Americans expressed their concerns —- with this single topic outstripping all others, including the economy, jobs, healthcare, education, or the federal budget and deficit.

According to Pew, just 28 percent of Americans approve of the way Barack Obama is handling the border. Double that number —-  56 percent —- disapprove.

Congressional Job Approval is even more abysmal. Scroll down to Real Clear Politics’ aggregated polling data to see the shockingly low scores across the board. The RCP average showed a 12.3 approval rating with 77.3 disapproving of the job congress is doing.

Virginia’s Eric Cantor, the unceremoniously ousted GOP House Majority Leader is emblematic of the ire with which the American people view their congressional representatives. After being trounced by Dave Brat, an unknown economics professor in the June 10 Republican primary, he has taken an early leave, quitting Friday and taking his bruised ego with him.

In Arizona, our GOP AZ 4 are running with no worries and no primary opponents, save for Trent Franks’ pesky challenger Clair Van Steenwyk. Incumbency brings many perks, chief among them the ability to raise significant campaign cash on the banks of the Potomac. 

Now they’re all home for a month during which they’ll whine about the inability to get immigration issues moving. Ask them the hard questions and don’t be cajoled by their practiced spew, heavy on “humanitarian” concerns. The humanitarian concerns they need to focus on are those involving the American citizens they are supposed to represent —- many underemployed or out of work, and still paying their salaries and providing their enviable benefits. 

This CBS report dated Oct. 2013 provides information on congressional  salaries and benefits, for working less than one-third of the year. The report is guaranteed to blow the top off your head. According to calculations, members of the House of Representatives will make approximately $1,539.82 per day or, given an eight-hour work day, roughly $192.47 per hour.

Just about what you bring home, right?


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.”


McCain condones sleazy tactics in Miss. Senate runoff

July 2, 2014

McCain approves fishy scheme of Republicrats encouraging Dems to upend GOP primaries

One week after traveling to Mississippi to aid fellow career politician Thad Cochran,76,  helping him overcome conservative challenger Chris McDaniel, Republicrat Sen. John McCain engaged in some Monday morning quarterbacking  regarding strengths he saw in Cochran’s approach to campaigning.  According to the McCain venerating daily.

McCain dismissed criticism over the smear campaign and race baiting tactics establishment Republicans used to encourage black Democrats to crossover and reregister as Republicans or Independents to vote for 6-termer  Cochran. In a squeaker of an election, Cochran beat McDaniel by 50.9 percent to 49.1 percent.

McCain was full of sarcasm as  he  zinged, “There are some people complaining that African-American voters voted. [But] I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans.” He described Cochran’s “get-out-the-vote campaign” as “excellent,” then talked about how he will face similar circumstances in Arizona and needs to work equally as hard if he runs again. “The key is you’d better pay attention, you’d better work hard, you’d better organize.” He added, “And you’d better understand that there’s a strong anti-Washington/anti-incumbency sentiment out there, which is justified and you’ve got your work cut out for you.” 

McDaniel accurately described  McCain, saying ” he is the perfect example of an establishment Republican. McCain voted to fund ObamaCare, and he won’t rest until he finds a way to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants. His liberal stances might work in Arizona, but he does not line up with Mississippi.”

After being censured repeatedly by elected Republican leaders from around the state of Arizona, it no longer takes much to disabuse Arizona conservatives of the notion that John McCain actually represents them. We know better.

There is an ideological war within the ranks of the Republicans Party. It is exemplified by the  “moderate” GOP establishment’s ire at being unable to control the growing Constitutional conservative base.

In order to pull off the Cochran victory, his campaign recruited and relied on Democrats to win the runoff —- which was held under the state’s open primary format in which even those voters not registered as Republicans could cast ballots.

Rev. Stevie Fieldler, a black Democrat pastor who brought hundreds to the polls for a promise of payment, exposes an alleged massive voter fraud, including a vote-buying operation by the Cochran campaign. “They said they needed black votes,” said Fielder on the phone. Watch the Got News video here.

True The Vote, a leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging the outcome of the bitter Mississippi GOP Senate primary, saying that investigators should take more time to determine whether election laws have been broken and whether illegal ballots were cast. Read the True the Vote lawsuit here.

Beyond despicable is the involvement of former RNC Chairman and two-term Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour in these deceptive tactics. Barbour is now making $millions at his influential D.C. lobbying firm. He and several of his family members were the driving force behind Thad Cochran’s unsavory re-election campaign.

It’s no surprise that these shady tactics meet with John McCain’s approval. They define him.
