AZ GOP’s disgraceful omission

October 31, 2014

Hey Robert, where’s Diane?

Arizona has a strong conservative candidate in Diane Douglas. Running for state Superintendent of Public Education, Douglas has piqued the interest of nationally syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin, who endorsed her in the primary and celebrated her landslide victory.

Douglas’ race was the one of the first called on Primary Election night as she handily trounced incumbent John Huppenthal, a Common Core curriculum supporter, in a 58 to 41 percent stunning upset —– winning in every single county statewide.

Yet the “Your Republican Team” mailer sent out by the Arizona Republican Party heralding the slate of GOP candidates in contested races, mysteriously omits grassroots heroine Diane Douglas, as she faces a well-funded, far-left, educrat opponent. This inexcusable omission is beyond shameful. Whatever the excuse, the buck stops with state chairman Robert Graham. The phone number of the Arizona GOP headquarters is (602) 957-7770.

Imperial Obama opens illegal floodgates to alter USA after Nov. 4

October 22, 2014

Unilaterally setting in motion massive scheme to nullify America’s sovereign border

This Washington Times editorial tells of Barack Obama’s ultimate goal of fulfilling his pledge to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” —- making our nation unrecognizable. Undergirding this scheme is his meme to permanently increase the Democrat voter base, while rendering Republicans to history’s political trash heap.

According to the Washington Times, the Obama regime intended to remain silent about its plans to implement these executive amnesty policies, circumventing congress. They know that revealing a scheme of this magnitude —- to brazenly open the floodgates of amnesty —- would be disastrous on the eve of the critical midterm elections, where Democrats are already working double time to back away from the failure of Obamaism and its disastrous policies.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services recently threw open the door to as many as 100,000 Haitians, who will now move to the United States without a visa. Earlier this month the agency solicited a printer able to handle a “surge” of 9 million green cards “to support possible future immigration-reform initiative requirements.” In an ordinary year, about 1 million green cards are issued, and over the life of this contract the company is expected to produce up to 34 million cards, a figure representing an increase of the population of the United States by 10 percent.

No wonder Obama wants to wait until after the upcoming November elections to impose his egregious scheme that will further depress the U.S. economy and displace American workers. Gallup polling finds fewer than one in four Americans favor increased expanding visas and immigration. In fact, more Americans of both parties think immigration should be decreased rather than increased —- and by a nearly two-to-one margin, 41% vs. 22%.

Barack Obama and his liberal minions, keen on transforming America into an unrecognizable nation, are diligently at work to accomplish this contemptible deed.

American citizen voters can get to work on stopping the transformation on Nov. 4.

 U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) a steadfast voice exposing amnesty schemes  says it best, “Never in recent memory has the divide between the everyday citizen and the political elite been as wide as it is now. A sovereign nation establishes rules about who can enter, work, and live within its borders. In every imaginable way, the President has worked to dismantle these rules -— on the border, in our courts, through our visa system, through our asylum system, through our exit-entry system. And with this planned executive action, the President proposes to scrub away what remains of these rules. And Senate Democrats will have been partners in its commission.”

National Review and Politico have each written substantiating reports on this appalling topic.

Even the left leaning Associated Press-GfK poll released Tuesday, acknowledges that most of the nation’s likely voters now expect the Republican Party to take control of the U.S. Senate with 7 in 10 expressing dissatisfaction with current leadership. Women are also moving sharply into the GOP camp. The still faltering economy remains the top priority for likely voters — 91 percent call it “extremely” or “very” important. The GOP has increased its advantage as the party more trusted to handle the issue.

Flooding our nation with millions of people competing for fewer jobs will lower America’s overall standard of living.

Vote Republican!  It’s our last best hope.


Indicted! Austin & Logan Flake, Todd & MaLeisa Hughes

October 16, 2014

Felony & misdemeanor charges filed against Sen. Jeff Flake’s son Austin, wife Logan and her parents

Four long months after the heat-related, suffocation deaths of nearly two dozen dogs at a Gilbert kennel, the owners and caretakers have been charged with multiple felony and misdemeanor counts. An indictment was handed down Wednesday by a Maricopa County Grand Jury.

The Grand Jury should be commended for diligently considering the evidence and doing the job it was impaneled to do —- conducting its business, without regard to politics.

Todd Hughes the owner of the boarding facility, has been a bad actor throughout this despicable saga, lying about the number of dogs involved and initially claiming they merely ran away. The story was later changed to cast blame on the dogs themselves by alleging one or more of the pets chewed through the air conditioning wiring. Hughes and his wife MaLeisa were vacationing out-of-state and left their daughter Logan, and son-in-law Austin, to oversee the care of the pets.

When the Flakes’ returned to the kennel the next day and witnessed the horrific scene, they callously hosed down the dying dogs in a crude attempt to cool them. The carcasses of the dogs were then piled in a storage shed. No professional veterinarians were called to help.

The dogs sweltered to death, packed together  in a steamy utility room, lacking air-conditioning, and without food or water provided for them.

After deputies responded to a call the morning of June 21, 2014, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office launched an extensive investigation and submitted its findings to the County Attorney’s Office on August 27, 2014.  This is Montgomery’s Sept. 10, follow-up press conference.

The indictment charges Todd and MaLeisa Hughes with 22 felony counts and 7 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals, and one felony count of fraudulent schemes and artifices. Austin and Logan Flake are each charged with 21 felony counts and 7 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals.

A hearing for the four defendants is scheduled Oct. 23, 2014.

Ebama: The tale of a president willing to gravely endanger Americans

October 8, 2014

Thomas Duncan, 1st Ebola patient diagnosed in U.S., died today in Dallas

The General Election is just around the bend. Many of the races and candidates have been covered here. But today we digress from campaigns to a single politician —- Barack Hussein Obama.

As the President of the United States, he is the man entrusted with the solemn duty of keeping American citizens safe.  Yet he is now risking the lives of the populace with policies designed to further the spread of a deadly contagion.  More concerned with political correctness and a commitment to open borders, he refuses too impose any travel restrictions from the West African nations where death runs rampant. Several African nations, including Kenya and Nigeria have issued travel bans. Additionally, Obama has inexplicably sent American troops, unprepared to deal with a deadly epidemic, to the infected areas.

The U.S. State Department currently allows applicants with HIV/AIDS to apply and enter our country. Those infected with tuberculosis, leprosy, or other afflictions “of public health significance” can apply for waivers.

Ebola, with no treatment or known cure, is rapidly becoming a global health crisis of monumental proportions. According to this September CDC report, which admits under-reporting of the actual cases, the number of Ebola outbreaks in Liberia and Sierra Leone could escalate to between 550,000 and 1.4 million by January 2015, and rise even higher if there are no “additional interventions or changes in community behavior.”

Another assessment published by WHO experts in the New England Journal of Medicine reports the fatality rate of the outbreak in West Africa is 71% and assesses the “current epidemiologic outlook [as] bleak.”  “The Ebola epidemic,” they write, is “in grave danger of spiraling out of control.”

Against this backdrop, we invite you to read the illuminating commentary “Ebola and Obama” by Dr. Thomas Sowell. It’s printed in Human Events, known for its powerful, conservative voices.


Still awaiting Montgomery’s Flake decision

September 29, 2014

A contortionist is described as a performer who peculiarly twists his body for the entertainment of others.

Minus the amusement factor, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery is beginning to resemble such a nimble acrobat as he attempts to maneuver an end to the case of animal abuse resulting in the gruesome heat related deaths of nearly two dozen dogs. They died while supposedly in the care of Austin and Logan Flake at a Gilbert kennel on June 20.

Such a move would not serve him well. Twenty-one pet owners have joined together in filing a civil suit against four defendants. Besides the Flakes, Todd and MaLesia Hughes, Logan Flake’s mother and stepfather, are named in the suit.

On June 23, Sheriff Joe Arpaio promised a full investigation of the deaths. After an extensive three-month examination of facts, which included veterinarian performed necropsies on some of the dogs, the sheriff’’s office recommended 21 felony charges of animal neglect and cruelty in connection with mistreatment of the pets resulting in death by suffocation. The dogs were crammed in a laundry room without air-conditioning, food or water. When the dead and dying dogs were discovered, the Flakes did not call for veterinary assistance, opting to hose down the dogs and then callously pile their carcasses in a shed.

Arpaio, a champion of animals, has had an Animal Crimes Investigations Unit as part of his office for over a decade. “I’m very confident we have the proper evidence for a conviction,” the sheriff said.

At a Sept. 10 press conference Montgomery exhibited raw insensitivity to the grieving pet owners as he provided insight as to his bent. “This isn’t to cheapen or minimize the loss of the pets to the families,” Montgomery said. “But we’re not talking about the deaths of 23 children.” 

The kennel owners Todd and MaLesia Hughes were on vacation and left the animals in the care of their daughter Logan and her husband Austin.  Austin is the son of Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake —- a man the politically ambitious Montgomery does not want as an enemy. 

Numerous lies were initially told by the Hughes and Flakes, including that a dog chewed through the air conditioner’s power cord after the Flakes left the facility for the night. Owners were also told their pets had run away. No evidence supported the claims.

We are now just two days away from the beginning of October, months away from the blazingly hot June day. Montgomery remains mute.

BP under the federal gun to investigate agents

September 28, 2014

Criminal investigations center on law enforcement agents not illegals

The daily reports that Customs and Border Protection has issued a press release on the alleged assault on a teenage illegal detainee by an agent —- at the specific direction of the agency’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The Jan. 30 incident, captured on a security camera video reputedly shows Border Agent Aldo Francisco Arteaga, a nine-year veteran, entering a holding area, confiscating the teen’s disallowed cell phone, and punching him in the stomach. Arteaga is stationed in Nogales, Arizona.  The area is a major portal for illegals and criminal gangs of drug traffickers. 

The article is rife with comments from the expected pro-illegal brigade including ACLU attorneys, a “skeptical” policy analyst at the American Immigration Council and representatives of “human rights” and “immigration rights” groups, expressing doubts regarding prosecution.

Border Patrol Agents are charged as “vigilant protectors of our Nation’s borders,” according to the Mission statement on U.S. Customs and Border Protection website. It neglects to mention that agents are supposed to do their job with one hand tied behind their backs, while being viewed with suspicion by the same federal government that employs them.

The US/Mexican border is a dangerous place. But the Border Agents protecting the U.S. from murderous drug cartels, jihadists intending harm to our homeland and defiant illegal invaders, are vilified by the leftist Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) newspaper —- as we noted in this post last year.

In 2010, the Sierra Vista Herald reported* there had been a marked increase in violence against U. S. Border Patrol agents —- up a stunning 300 percent in the first two months of the fiscal year. The report indicated 108 attacks on agents in the Tucson sector alone. The previous year there were 27 such reports.

This list of U.S. Border Patrol Agents who have died in the line of duty since Dec. 2003 gives an indication of where the actual focus of prosecution needs to be.

Beheading horror comes to US, but don’t call it terror

Muslim convert decapitates Oklahoma woman, stabs another in case of “workplace violence”

In an act of savagery too horrific to imagine, Alton Nolen, just fired from his job at an Oklahoma food distribution plant, engaged in a bit of “workplace violence.” The feds and local law enforcement remain unable to use the term “Islamic terrorism.”

Shouting praise to Allah, Nolen decapitated Colleen Hufford, 54, and stabbed Traci Johnson 43. Johnson is hospitalized, as is the knife wielder, who was shot by an off-duty reserve deputy employed by the business.

Employees of the plant said Nolen had been attempting to convert co-workers to Islam. 

So what does Adam Soltani, executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Oklahoma, say about these actions? In his statement he refers to the savage murderer as a “gentleman.”

“It’s really unfortunate that there’s a lot of attention on Muslims these days for actions of people who are either part of extremist groups or who have extreme ideas. However, Islam is clear on what it stands for. Islam stands for peace, Islam stands for justice, Islam stands for love for humanity, compassion and mercy. What this gentleman did in Moore, which is inhumane and barbaric, is definitely not a representation of what our faith teaches and we hope and pray that justice will be brought against the perpetrator soon, so that the victims and their families can find some sort of solace in that justice.”

In an added insult ABC News consultant and former senior FBI agent Brad Garrett, described as having extensive experience in criminal profiling, opined that on the surface the incident appears to be “workplace violence.”

The Oklahoman newspaper used the same foolish language in its report.

Former Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan has been sentenced to death for the 2009 Fort Hood Army base massacre that left 14 dead and 32 wounded. Prosecutors argued the attack was a “jihad duty” under his Islamic faith, and witnesses reported him yelling Islamic blessings as he gunned down his fellow soldiers.

But Pentagon officials classified the attack as a “workplace violence” incident, arguing it did not meet the criteria for a terrorist or combat attack.

The victims are still struggling to get medical care and benefits they would receive now and into the future if this slaughter were classified as an act of terrorism, according to this report in the Navy Times.

White House officials declined a request from the victims of Hasan’s evil to meet with Barack Obama and discuss their ongoing difficulties.
