Obama surrenders Internet to “global community”

March 14, 2014

With today’s historic announcement, Lawrence E. Strickling,  Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information acknowledges the United States has agreed to cede control of the authoritative root zone file, which contains all names and addresses of all top-level domain names.

To support and enhance the multi-stakeholder model of Internet policymaking and governance, the U.S. Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) today announces its intent to transition key Internet domain name functions to the global multi-stakeholder community.  As the first step, NTIA is asking the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to convene global stakeholders to develop a proposal to transition the current role played by NTIA in the coordination of the Internet’s domain name system (DNS).  Read the rest of the administration’s press release.

Former House speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA.) tweeted, “What is the global internet community that Obama wants to turn the internet over to? This risks foreign dictatorships defining the internet.”

Will she fight for the flag she won’t salute?

February 27, 2014

The Army Times reports Pfc. Tariqka Sheffey, a soldier who hid in her car to avoid saluting the flag — and then flaunted her unpatriotic defiance on Instagram — is the latest service member to be accused of dishonoring her military service. Sheffey, currently a member of the 59th Quartermaster Company, 43rd Sustainment Brigade, at Fort Carson, Colorado, should be a former member, with a dishonorable discharge to accompany her dismissal.

The vulgar Sheffey, whose Instagram handle is “sheffeynation,” posted a selfie with a caption that reads:

“This is me laying back in my car hiding so I don’t have to salute the 1700 flag, KEEP ALL YOUR ‘THATS SO DISRESPECTFUL/HOWRUDE/ETC.’ COMMENTS TO YOURSELF cuz, right now, IDGAFFFF.” (Care to decipher? Click here.)


Radical homosexual agenda funded by billionaire lobby

February 26, 2014

Given the raucous demonstrations accompanied by cries of discrimination surrounding the issue of religious liberty SB 1062 has engendered here in Arizonait’s worth asking the question, “Just where does all the money advancing the ‘gay’ agenda come from?”  Michael Voris, who produces ChurchMilitant.TV, provides the answer.

Voris’ own religious perspective is Catholic, but his words hold truth regardless of one’s faith.

We urge you to watch the enlighteningPink Money.”

There is no discriminatory language pertaining to “gays’ or anyone else contained in SB 1062. That fact has not kept it from becoming a rallying cry for those relentlessly pushing the homosexual agenda. 

The Arizona Republic, leading the charge against the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, “came out” long ago, as we previously pointed out in the post In their very gay element at the daily.

 


Gov’t monitors: Obama control in newsrooms

February 20, 2014

White House exerts control and intimidation 

From the “No Obama Overreach Is Too Much Department” comes this news regarding the federal government’s crushing boot on the neck of the First Amendment and the free press.

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) is reporting that the Obama administration is looking to send the FCC into newsrooms to  investigate how the media chooses stories.

The Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs (CINs) initiative was proposed last spring. The FCC said it wanted information from television and radio broadcasters “to ascertain the process by which stories are selected, station priorities — for content production quality, and populations served —  perceived station bias, perceived percent of news dedicated to each of the eight CINs of ‘critical information’ necessitating coverage and perceived responsiveness to underserved populations.Read the CIN study here.

Equally disturbing are the in-depth interview questions (beginning on page 25) stratified by employment level, with questions such as What is the news philosophy of the station? Who else in your market provides news? Who are your main competitors? How much news does your station air every day?

At the top of page 37, the city of Tucson is misspelled as TUSCSON, adding to the anxiety level brought on by this alarming report.

There are legitimate reasons for concern that the government will exert influence over what stations cover, since the FCC authorizes  their licenses. The agency is now poised to expand its regulatory powers to include newspapers, over which it has no authority.

This blatant attempt at media control comes on the heels of Reporters Without Borders ranking the United States 46th in its World Press Freedom Index.

ACLJ’s Matthew Clark cogently sums up the unconscionable assault on our free society with these words: “Imagine a government monitor telling Fox News it needed to cover stories in the same way as MSNBC or Al Jazeera.  Imagine an Obama Administration official walking in to the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal and telling it that the American public would be better served if it is stopped reporting on the IRS scandal or maybe that reporting on ObamaCare “glitches” is driving down enrollment.”

Obama’s approval rating is in the low 40’s. Think about it.


University text demonizes Reagan, Conservatives

February 19, 2014

Leftist propaganda campaign indoctrinates students

Although President Ronald Reagan appointed the first woman to the U.S. Supreme Court and the first female ambassador to the United Nations, students at the University of South Carolina are being given a much different perspective of the two-term iconic president.

Overpriced at $179, the textbook, Introduction to Social Work & Social Welfare: Critical Thinking Perspectives accuses Ronald Reagan of being a sexist who was insensitive to women and minorities. Interestingly, the book describes conservatives in general, and Reagan in particular, as taking “a pessimistic view of human nature,” though Reagan was known for his optimism. In the skewed book, liberals are described as the optimists.

Among other foolish claims, the book says Reagan ascribed to women ‘primarily domestic functions’ and failed to appoint many women to significant positions. Besides Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and U.N. Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick, he appointed over 1400 women to policy-making positions including Secretary of Transportation Elizabeth Dole, Secretary of Health and Human Services Margaret Heckler and Secretary of Labor Ann Dore McLaughlin.

The author, Karen Kirst-Ashman, also accuses Reagan of discounting the “importance of racism and discrimination.” She asserts conservatives are opposed to change; have a pessimistic view of human nature; and believe in only “minimal assistance to the needy because the needy can help themselves.”

Liberals, on the other hand, are portrayed as having a positive view of change, a much more upbeat view of human nature; and a fundamental belief government serves to protect people from racism, sexism, other forms of discrimination and poverty.

The textbook attacks wealth, arguing that those who have achieved success “find that having a social class of poor people is useful.” In fact, Reagan, who personally understood the promise of the American Dream, firmly believed helping the unproductive become productive benefited us all.  He opposed over-arching government and implemented four specific economic policy components that became known as Reaganomics:

1. Tax cuts to restore incentives for economic growth.

2. Spending reductions, including a $31 billion cut in 1981.

3. Anti-inflation monetary policy emphasizing the strength of the dollar.

4. Deregulation, cutting red tape, and reducing bureaucracy — which saved consumers an estimated $100 billion per year in lower prices.

But the left is obviously dedicated to destroying Reagan’s legacy, conservatism and the economic principles that led to a period of unprecedented economic growth in the United States. The educrats are propagandizing and indoctrinating our youth to believe in the agenda  (shocking linked videorather than truth — as American parents foot the bill for the brainwashing of their own children.


Exorbitant US debt hobbles our children’s future

February 18, 2014

Conservative efforts toward restraint are ridiculed by establishment 

Heritage Foundation has done a masterful job of illustrating the 2014 federal budget in pictures. Today debt stands at an unsustainable $17 trillion, yet projections point to a relentless $205 trillion facing American citizens.

The Congressional Budget Office shows very clearly something we’ve known for a long time: America’s spending and debt are out of control. Now reaching $140,000 per American household, the national debt is bigger than what the entire U.S. economy produces in a year. U.S. public debt — what the nation has borrowed in credit markets — has doubled, as a share of the economy, since before the recession to levels not seen since around World War II. Read more about why debt matters.

Under the heading, ‘Federal spending and debt are out of control,’ a series of charts detail the incalculable crisis.  If America does not change course, the future will dramatically worsen.

Now more than ever, it is crucial that Americans understand what our nation’s spending, taxes, and debt mean for them and their families. The Heritage Foundation’s Federal Budget in Pictures offers a unique tool to learn about the federal budget in a clear and compelling way.

Educate yourself. Each of these charts can be enlarged by clicking them on individually. Then check out these vital links: CUT SPENDING. FIX THE DEBT. REDUCE THE TAX BURDEN.

Federal spending per household is projected to grow by 22 percent over the next decade, after adjusting for inflation. Federal spending per household more than doubled from 1962 to 2003. Spending grew by 17 percent just over the past decade.


Amnesty advocates threaten reprisals against GOP

February 13, 2014

Brassy illegals and their cohorts wage war on Republicans

Reporter Dan Nowicki’s Page One article in the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) carries a headline with the fierce warning, “Migrant activists threaten political payback.”

The “migrants” are actually illegals aliens, led by their radical activist promoters, who make a living in their quest to undermine our country. But Nowicki adheres to the new AP Stylebook standards, which no longer sanction the term ‘illegal immigrant’ or the use of ‘illegal’ to describe a person.”

The two-page report, based on this provocative press release, forewarns of retaliatory actions aimed at unseating Congressional Republicans who have failed to give the gift of amnesty to our nation’s estimated 30 million invaders.

Kudos to Nowicki for his honesty in describing the Campaign for Community Change as “left-leaning,” though “extremist” would have been more accurate.  The following is a quote from Kica Matos, the group’s director of the antagonistically titled “immigrant rights and racial justice” division.

Persuasion only goes so far, and now, with Speaker Boehner casting doubt that he can actually deliver immigration reform, FIRM (Fair Immigration Reform Movement) is switching tactics from persuasion to punishment,” said Kica Matos, director for immigrant rights and racial justice at the left-leaning Campaign for Community Change.

“So, let me just be clear about one thing: From now on, any lawmaker who does not support comprehensive immigration reform should expect relentless and constant confrontations that will escalate until they agree to support immigration reform.”

Matos said the group will target Republicans in their home districts and in the halls of Congress. And the political retribution will even extend to potentially vulnerable House Republicans in swing districts with significant Hispanic populations who already are on the record as backing immigration reform.

“No Republican is safe,” Matos threatened.

This boot-quaker of a warning led to a Google search which turned up a New York Times wedding announcement, revealing that the issuer of intimidation and her husband, both lawyers, met at a Washington D.C. conference of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. And wouldn’t you know — both claim to “share a passion for, and are driven by, a sense of justice.”

That “passion” just doesn’t extend to American citizens, who have every right to expect adherence to the constitutionally enshrined laws of the land and respect for our sovereign nation’s border.


Open letter to AZ’s U.S. Reps. considering amnesty vote

January 29, 2014

The New York Times reports that U.S. House Republican leadership is “offering a broad framework for overhauling the nation’s immigration laws and will call this week for a path to legal status” for illegal aliens who have systematically invaded our nation, while blatantly disregarding our laws, borders and national sovereignty.

Here is our Open Letter to AZ House GOP’ers who are poised to feed us amnesty in what has been termed “piecemeal” fashion.

 Dear Arizona Republican Members of Congress:

You may be tempted to play the old, tired “Washington Word Game” with your constituents when it comes to the so-called “Statement of Principles” on alleged “Immigration Reform.”

Here’s one word of advice: Don’t!

Don’t try to tell us that the “piecemeal Amnesty strategy” that former McCain aide Rebecca Tallent and House GOP Leadership are trying to promote isn’t really Amnesty — we’re smarter than that!

Don’t try to tell us that this is a “thoughtful approach” that will bring common-sense reform; we know better!

Don’t expect us to believe that the Obama Administration, which even Speaker Boehner has accused of ignoring the law, will somehow decide to enforce the sanctions found in any new immigration laws.

But if you should succumb to this misguided, “bite sized McFlake Open Borders” vision of the future, and still expect our support at the ballot box…Don’t!!!

Sincerely,

Arizona Conservative Voters


GOP constructs its own irrelevancy

January 24, 2014

The trendy fallacy promoted by political pundits is that the absence of amnesty on the Republican platter equates to a starvation death of the GOP.

Although it’s not difficult to understand the various Chambers of Commerce push for low wage, unskilled labor via amnesty, the idea of Republican politicians working to create at least 20 million more Democrat voters is effectively a sure-fire suicide plan.

Those paying attention have noticed the “A’ word “has all but disappeared from the debate.  It‘s been replaced with other less provocative terms such as “earned legalization,” favored by Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) or “the need to come out of the shadows and reintegrate into society.” These voguish slogans take the onus off of the illegals who disregard our sovereign borders and disrespect our laws, while accessing our benefits and habitually engaging in more criminal activity once they arrive.  Some of these often serious offenders have been departed numerous times.

Illegals previously released from custody have subsequently been charged with tens of thousands of other crimes, including murders, sex crimes and thousands of drunk-driving offenses, drug-crimes and felonies, according to a report from the  Congressional Research Service. Still the Obama administration refused to deport them. The Daily Caller reports an August 2012 non-partisan Congressional Research Service report stated the “decision not to deport some arrested illegal immigrants enabled a crime wave.”

The Republican amnesty-maneuver proponents claim their plan includes a fine, payment of back taxes, learning English and civics, a criminal background check and proof of employment. They are mum when it comes to actual enforcement provisions of any of those contrivances, akin to the DREAM Act which enables amnesty for those up to age 30, brought to the U.S. as young children.  Who determines the veracity of illegals claiming such status?  Counting on illegal invaders to become honest brokers is nothing short of self-delusional folly.

Yet the legislation in the works with House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) driving the scheme  — assisted by Paul Ryan — is expected to make it across the finish line. Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA.) has zeroed in on pushing what has become known as DREAM Act Light — legalizing those who claim they were innocents brought here by their parents. Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA.), has regional interests that move him toward supporting this travesty. Agricultural interests in his district are eager for more low wage laborers.

The bills initially offer a “piecemeal” approach rather than a path to full citizenship. The rest of the pieces will eventually fall into place, joining the outdated concept of birthright citizenship and chain migration, which other nations are abandoning. Meanwhile the United States will be even more vulnerable as incentives to bypass our legal immigration process are created — while disingenuously hanging the Republican party out to dry.

Nearly a year ago Ann Coulter got it right with this incisive commentary titled, “Hispanicked GOP elite: They‘ll respect us in the morning.”

Coulter was right then.  She’s even more correct in retrospect.


Dem swagger embodies intolerance, unipartisanship

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo: Calls Pro-Life and Pro-Second Amendment Americans “extremists” and tells them to leave New York.

“Their problem is not me and the Democrats Their problem is themselves. Who are they?” the governor asked. “Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”  Watch.

President Barack Obama: Threatens to continue circumventing Congress by issuing executive orders bypassing the legislative body, to carry out his pledge to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”

“I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone.” he boasted. “And I can  use that pen to sign executive orders.”  Watch.
