Montgomery’s conflict of interest undergirds legal filing

July 29, 2014

The Arizona Daily Independent reports on the blatant conflict of interest exhibited by Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery as he engages in campaigning for Attorney General Tom Horne’s challenger, Mark Brnovich  —- even as he uses the vast power of his office to personally target Horne.

According to the news account, sources are reporting that based on Montgomery’s relationship with Brnovich, a request for a restraining order will be filed by attorneys for Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne in Maricopa County Superior Court.

Although a video featuring a sincerely enthusiastic Montgomery has been removed from Brnovich’s campaign website, a statement of support remains on the candidate’s homepage.  

Given that Montgomery, who has become a close McCain and Kyl ally, was instrumental in recruiting Brnovich to challenge conservative Attorney General Tom Horne, his actions rise past the level of unseemliness.

John McCain, Jeff Flake working to aid invasion

July 27, 2014

AZ senate duo’s legislation encourages more illegals

 According to this account posted on Liberty News, Arizona’s poor excuses for U.S. Senators John McCain and his doppelganger Jeff Flake are actually about to begin heavily pushing a disastrous $100,000,000 bill that not only does nothing to secure the border, but actually makes it easier for more illegal aliens to flood our nation. Known as the “CREST ACT,” (‘‘Children Returning an Expedited and Safe Timeline Act’’) key provisions of the bill provide for the following: 

1) Initially allocates $100 million of our tax dollars.

2) Asserts acts that are already illegal are now illegal.

3) Makes it a federal crime to prohibit a DHS, HHS or BP bus from moving from point A to point B. (Correction to this assertion posted by Sara Noble on The Independent Sentinel)

4) Does absolutely nothing to secure the border and stop the invasion in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas. These southern borders will remain wide open and the bill doesn’t address this.

5) Creates a communication channel between HHS and states about newly recommended facilities for housing illegal aliens.

6) Opens up U.S. facilities in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador for the purpose of processing illegal aliens on foreign soil.

7) Calls for 15,000 “refugees” from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to be processed on foreign soil and transported into the U.S. this year alone.

Refugees will be increased to 15,000 from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador combined (5,000 from each country.) We will go to these countries, pick out the would-be illegals, and fly them into our country at taxpayer expense.

Further, the bill authorizes the Department of Homeland Security to hire 100 new asylum officers to be placed in the Refugee, Asylum, and International Operations Directorate of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Care to take a guess how the words “refugee” and “asylum seekers” will transform this equation? Those illegals designated  as refugees will get IDs, an income, food, housing and a pathway to citizenship.

The entire bill can be read here.

This is absolutely mind-numbing. Liberty News’ Eric Odom correctly assesses “Barack Obama doesn’t even need to abuse his executive powers. John McCain and Jeff Flake are doing all of his dirty work for him.”

According to a recent press release from McCain’s office, the act addresses a growing “humanitarian crisis.” Don’t buy it.  This is a crisis all right, but the correct descriptive words to describe it are “illegal invasion.”  “Humanitarian” is a contrivance and deluding misnomer.


Persecution of Iraqi Christians garners little notice

July 27, 2014

Reports: There is not a single Christian family left in Mosul

This chilling article detailing the horrors facing Christians in Iraq was printed in The Guardian, a U.K. publication. The U.S. press is mostly silent on the terror being imposed by Islamic militants.

The last Christians in northern Iraqi cities such as Mosul have fled from places where their communities have lived for almost 2,000 years, as a deadline passed for them to convert to Islam, pay an onerous religious tax or be killed.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) recently issued a decree offering Christians the three options accompanied by the ominous threat that, if they did not comply, “then there is nothing to give them but the sword.”

Mosul includes the site of ancient Nineveh, the city to which biblical prophet Jonah was dispatched by God.  It was first mentioned in Genesis 10:11-12.

National Review’s The Corner carries a commentary The Attack on Christians in the Middle East by Rev. Robert Barron, which opens with “Though you would never guess it from the paucity of coverage in the major news media, there is a fierce persecution of Christians going on in the Middle East. In Egypt, convents and churches are being burned to the ground and Copts, members of one of the most ancient Christian communities, are being routinely harassed, tortured, and arrested. In Iraq, the ISIS group, hoping to re-establish a “caliphate” across the northern sector of the Middle East, is brutally persecuting Christians.” 

When Barack Obama recently hosted his sixth Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan at the White House, it would be interesting to know if he brought up the topic of Christians suffering torture and death at the hands of Muslim fundamentalists before or after what the White House blog refers to as the “traditional melodic Muslim call to prayer.”  Then again, it might have slipped his mind during the festivities.

Take some time this Sunday to read the linked news articles and acquaint yourself with the hard facts.

The White House website claims “President Obama is committed to creating the most open and accessible administration in American history.” This site provides contact information.


Bush-Bolick duo pen another Open Borders missive

July 25, 2014

Bush tries to move away from notorious remark, “illegal immigration is an act of love”

Here we go again. The amnesty duo of Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick have co-authored yet again.  First it was their book “Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution.”  Now the twosome has taken to the Opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal with “The Solution to Border Disorder.” The amnesty hucksters opine the “best antidote to illegal immigration is a functioning system of legal immigration.”

The usual blather about “America’s broken immigration system” leaps out in the first paragraph.  Next comes the trio of trites, beginning with the “need for compassion” in the face of the “humanitarian crisis.”

But what’s this? Bush and Bolick schizophrenically jump from these squish views to sounding like hardliners, with “we must close loopholes” that allow  for releases from federal custody between hearings.…except for those deserving few who may demonstrate true cause for asylum or protection from sex trafficking.  The flood of children must be returned to their homes in Central America. Then they say “we must aggressively remove the incentives that encourage people to break immigration laws.”

 Whoa. Sorry pals. You can’t have it both ways. 

But still they try. “We should pursue interdiction strategies that head off illegal immigration before it gets to our border, calling for greater American engagement economically.”  Moderates always think money has a palliative effect. These two sound suspiciously committed to Obama’s request for $3.7 billion of our tax dollars to address the invasion.

It’s no surprise the Bush-Bolick Team are onboard with the latest incarnation of McCain-Flake legislation, which they extol as increasing by 5,000 the number of humanitarian visas available in each of the countries producing the dispersion of illegals — Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras — providing an incentive, they claim, for individuals to stay in their home country and pursue immigration legally.

Trust in these practiced deceivers at your own peril.

As Jeb licks his chops in anticipation of a 2016 presidential run, it’s difficult not to agree with the Bush family matriarch, Barbara, who openly declared there had been “enough Bushes” in the Oval Office.

Mom is right. John Ellis Jeb,” is a Bush too far.”  Watch and listen closely. 


AZ’s “botched” execution?

July 24, 2014

Victims Debbie and Gene Dietz forgotten

The Arizona Republic’s 2-word, oversized, all caps headline “BOTCHED EXECUTION,” is the type previously reserved for reporting a declaration of war. Actually, that’s exactly what it is. A war on the death penalty. The follow-up obligatory editorial calls for “a moratorium” on the practice, saying it defines “cruel.“ Columnists E. J. Montini and Laurie Roberts are reliably aboard with misplaced sympathies.

The Page One report continuing to two jump pages, was written by the newspaper‘s reporter, among the witnesses. It comes complete with the requisite full-color photo showing death penalty opponents, holding signs outside the state prison. One sign says, “No one deserves to die.”

It’s a good bet none of them were related to the victims of the grisly murders.

The reporter calls the execution a “gruesome scene.” He wasn’t referring to the site of the Tucson double homicide that left a father and daughter dead.

By now most Arizonans have heard the name Joseph Rudolph Wood.  He’s the cold-blooded double murderer whose execution, finally re-scheduled and carried out Wednesday, is the subject of the article. He’s lived an additional 25 years more than his forgotten victims, Debbie Dietz, just 29 years old at the time of her murder and her 55-year-old father, Gene Dietz. They were executed in 1989 at their family owned auto repair shop in Tucson.

For an account of what brought Woods to the day when his execution took longer than considered proper by the bleeding  hearts crowd, read what brought him to his end. The gruesome facts of the murders are not in readily available in the Arizona Media.

Family members of Wood’s victims, who also witnessed the execution, said they had no problems with the way it was carried out.

Jeanne Brown another daughter of victim Eugene Dietz, gave her view on whether Wood suffered. “You don’t know what excruciating is,” she said. “Excruciating is seeing your dad lying in a pool of blood.”

“This man conducted horrific murders and you guys are going, let’s worry about the drugs” (used in the lethal injection), said Richard Brown, the brother-in-law of Debbie Dietz.” Why didn’t they give him a bullet, why didn’t we give him Drano?”

The leftwing media is more concerned with the number of gasps Wood took as they report his death as “chilling.” Compounding the atrocious crimes he committed is the fact that his victims have become obscure as the murderer has bizarrely transmogrified into the sympathetic character.


Gov. Perry’s bold border action: Left v. Right views

July 22, 2014

After it was announced that Texas Gov. Rick Perry was deploying 1,000 National Guard troops to his state’s southern border to provide much-needed security, the liberal Dallas Morning News ran with this headline, “Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s border sheriffs pan Perry’s plan to send National Guardsmen.” 

Perry described his decision as an imperative response to help U.S. Border Patrol agents overwhelmed by an estimated flood of 60,000 unaccompanied children from Central America who have arrived since October. With border security spread thin and distracted, drug cartels and human traffickers might push into a state where their crimes already have taken a toll, he said. At the current rate, the illegal arrivals, mainly from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and, of course, Mexico, are expected to reach 90,000 by fall.

This was the Drudge Report’s top-of-the-page take on Perry’s action:

Drudge_Report_Perry_Natl_Guard

The Dallas newspaper’s VP and editorial page editor is the same Keven Ann Willey who set the leftwing tone of the Arizona Republic before her move to Texas a dozen+ years ago.

The time has come to deduct the costs of this invasion from the foreign aid cash-strapped American taxpayers are ponying up to send to these countries that hold the United States, our sovereignty, rule of law and generosity in utter disdain. In 2013, El Salvador got $27 million, Guatemala received $84 million, Honduras took in $52 million and Mexico put its hooks in us to the tune of $265 million.

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.”


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.”


Campy Ken Bennett: Making all the wrong moves

July 12, 2014

Term limited Secretary of State Ken Bennett is one of the pack of six running in the Republican primary for governor. He’s generally regarded as a low-key guy better known for strumming his guitar and making budget presentations using Kleenex boxes, than for the time he served in the state senate from 1998 – 2007.

He also gained attention for incidents surrounding verification of Obama’s birth certificate. Not nearly as much for the inquiry itself as for his inane follow-up apology as reported here on KTAR News.

Now, as if he isn’t busy enough running a statewide campaign financed by public money, he has jumped on the McBandwagon against Arizona’s conservative Attorney General Tom Horne, declaring the state should launch a probe into whether Horne violated state election laws —- allegations denied by Horne.

In another bizarre move earlier this year, seemingly calculated to lose conservative voters, Bennett had this to say about SB 1062 —- the Religious Freedom Restoration Act which strengthened protections in Arizona law to defend against religious discrimination. Bennett described the bill as “an unnecessary….divisive measure.” The bill was disappointingly vetoed by Gov. Jan Brewer after she caved to pressure from the homosexual lobby.

Even more curious is his odd invitation to supporters to “Join the Ken Bennett Camp.”

The word association is not the best for Bennett, whose camp counselor son was sentenced to jail time for sodomizing (the press called the brutal acts “brooming”) 18 middle school age campers with broomsticks, a flashlight and a cane. This is the report from the Arizona Daily Sun. This article details the civil lawsuits filed by the families of the young campers, who claim Bennett’s son got a sweetheart deal because of his father’s prominence.

“Camp” is a word Bennett should steer clear of. Ditto the governor’s race, which he is unlikely to win.


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.”
