Obama calls Iran’s despotic Muslim ayatollah “Supreme Leader”

November 9, 2013

Jay Nordlinger, writing in the Nov. 11, issue of National Review, has a commentary sure to set the teeth of any thinking American on edge.

In “Entitled” Nordlinger addresses what he calls the “tricky business of addressing or referring to an unsavory foreign leader.”

The article begins with these words: “In his recent address at the U.N., President Obama referred to Ali Khamenei, the head ayatollah in Iran. Each time, he referred to him as “the Supreme Leader.” He did not even say his name: just “Supreme Leader.” Was that really necessary, for the president of the United States? Those who control Iran may refer to Khamenei as “Supreme Leader” — but do democratic leaders, such as Obama, have to follow suit?

Two months after he became president, in 2009, Obama sent Nowruz greetings to Iran. (Nowruz is the Persian new year.) His predecessor, George W. Bush, had sent such greetings too. But Bush made clear that he was sending them to the people. Obama sent them to “the people and leaders” of Iran. He also referred to the country — twice — as “the Islamic Republic of Iran,” as the mullahs style the country. Iranian democrats, many of whom are in jail, don’t see it that way.”

JD Hayworth: Continues to speak for Conservatives

October 20, 2013

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.


Why is U.S. Park Service propagandizing for Islam?

September 25, 2013

Todd Starnes writing for Townhall provides an excellent exposé of the bizarre endorsement of Islam by the National Park Service. Read “National Park Service Promotes Islamic Videos.”

There are three videos included in his article.  They depict students at Muslim schools attempting to elicit empathy about their beliefs — down playing the Muslim connection to the horrors of 9/11 and saying non-Muslims are “ignorant” about them and treat them badly.

We include one portraying Islam as a “religion of peace” here:

Smokey Bear, wearing a park ranger cap, has been the iconic symbol of the Park Service since 1944.  His familiar fire prevention warnings, “Only YOU can prevent forest fires,” have now been replaced by this outrageous Islamic propaganda and videos of a mute, guy-hugging Smokey. If you can stand that, here’s another.

The New York Times reports that Smokey’s appearance is being changed because the ad agency brass handling the campaign, “…want to leverage the icon. The hugs are part of the decision to turn Smokey into a character who is depicted as “rewarding people,” rather than “entreating them or admonishing them to take personal responsibility. It’s moving the tone away from sober, which doesn’t resonate with young people, while maintaining the seriousness of the issue.”

How much longer before these cool ad guys who disdain sober messaging about the deadly serious issue of forest fires, will feature a drag version of Smokey wearing a hajab or burqa?


Mind-boggling truth: Americans getting filtered news

September 17, 2013

Putin_Sports_Time_magPutin_Time_mag 

Russia’s Putin on cover of global editions of Time magazine; USA rates sports fluff

As the rest of the world is discussing serious matters concerning World Peace or threats to America, Americans are given the equivalent of another six-pack — with the specific goal of keeping us ignorant.

Compare the absurd covers detailing Time magazine content* intended for American consumption. They and the reports they contain are not remotely comparable to those directed to foreign audiences.  We are kept in the dark with sports, entertainment and the war between the sexes, while European, Middle Eastern, African and Asian editions carry topics concerning critical world events and explore the global impact of Islam.

How often have you seen the phrase, AMERICA, WAKE UP!”? Is it any wonder the fastest growing online newspaper in the USA is The Guardian, published in Great Britain?  Even Fox News is undependable. The network, now boasting a lineup of hired liberal strategists, is too interested in being “fair and balanced,” to provide unfiltered information.

Beware the sedating seduction of “Bread and Circuses.” Entertainment is a powerful distraction from addressing the difficult issues we are facing. The term is descriptive of the political strategy of the ancient Roman elites preceding the empire’s eventual fall. It was based on hedonistic disdain of ethical behavior, civic values and disregard of patriotism, as the officials lulled the Roman citizens with diversions of cheap entertainment, free wheat, beer and distractions of watching gladiators compete — contrived to take their minds off of the empire’s massive problems.

September 11, 2001: We will not forget

September 11, 2013

We also need to get smarter and drop the politically correct descriptions

Twin towers

Twelve years ago today, 2,973 people were murdered by terrorists who commandeered two commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City and  a third into the Pentagon. The death toll includes 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers rushed the cockpit.

 Along with our American citizens, people from 90 other countries were killed in the attacks perpetrated by those we have referred to each year as we post this memorial as “Islamo-fascist extremists.”

Today as we also remember the orchestrated attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi on this same date just last year  — resulting in the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Ty Woods, Sean Smith and Glen Doherty, we are changing our descriptive terminology.

Bare Naked Islam (BNI), a site which boldly declares, “It isn’t Islamophobia when they really ARE trying to kill you,” exposes the fact that these terrorists are not an aberration of Islam, but rather devout followers extolled as the “Magnificent 19” and, in fact, revered for their heinous acts by their families and their communities. BNI includes portions of a book ‘Perfect Soldiers: The 9/11 Hijackers, Who They Were, Why They Did It’, written by LA Times reporter Terry McDermott.  After doing in-depth research for his book, McDermott concludes they were all “model Muslims,” actually “perfect soldiers” for Allah, deeply religious and following the tenets of their faith.

“Allahu Akbar! translates to “Allah is Greater.” It is an Islamic Arabic expression, used as both an informal expression of faith and as a formal declaration — often accompanying Jihadist terror attacks.

Days ago, Arizona’s senior Sen. John McCain foolishly compared shouts of “Allahu Akbar!” to a Christian saying “Thank God.” The post and the video can be seen here. This is exactly the type of irrational political correctness that needs to be replaced.

We begin today.


Invasion‘s magical lingo: “Migrants, undocumented, refugees, asylum seekers…”

September 9, 2013

….replacing the politically incorrect “illegal aliens”

Our normally dry Valley is awash, not just with a drenching downpour, but also with a flood of what the daily newspaper cunningly refers to as “migrants.” We know them as illegal aliens, and most often view them as invading the United States via Arizona’s southern border, from Mexico, South and Central America.

Sunday’s edition disabuses us of such notions. An oversized front page report, continuing for two additional jump pages, details the “hundreds, maybe even thousands, of undocumented migrants from India” smuggled yearly into Arizona seeking  “asylum.” On average, they pay $35,000 apiece to gain access, using dubious claims of facing danger in their homeland. The numbers of such claimants is surging. Even the open-borders newspaper reports officials are suspicious of their pitiful tales — though the steady flood  of humanity continues.

Today’s edition provides more of the same. In this saga, it is a Hutu farmer living in Zimbabwe being helped to “rejoin his family” by the Grand Canyon chapter of the American Red Cross. He has not seen his Tutsi wife and children since he fled a refugee camp in Zambia, leaving them behind in 2005.  He is still in Africa, but count on him arriving  in Phoenix soon. For reasons undisclosed, the family requested their names not be released.

Despite being assured by former Homeland InSecurity chieftain, Janet Napolitano that “our borders have never been stronger,” exactly the opposite is true. Watch this sobering WSB Atlanta Action News report detailing the OTM’s (Other Than Mexicans) from terror sponsoring nations, who have learned Spanish and infiltrated the USA.

Is there a genial way to say “We told you so?” Probably not. We will simply self-congratulate on our own early perceptions of the transmogrifications of amnesty and the threats Americans are facing, ignored by our own government officials at both the federal and state level.  

In 2008, we saw it coming, in the post “Lawbreakers morphing into asylum seekers,” noting the reconfiguring of illegal aliens into victims. It was an ideal pretext for the open borders Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic), providing the leftist decimator of pap another convenient hook for its endless promotion of amnesty. And it perfectly comported with the United Nation’s expanded concept of refugees in its 1967 Convention and Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees, to include persons fleeing violence in their home country.

In 2010, we wrote “The ball to keep your eyes on: Newly configured ‘political refugees.’” We followed in 2011 with “Asylum! The hottest ticket for ‘political refugees.’”

The claim worked well for Barack Obama’s Kenyan-born aunt Zeituni Onyango who lived in taxpayer supported public housing in Boston. She was granted asylum in a private hearing six years after being ordered deported.


The troubling roots of McCain’s Syrian policy

September 7, 2013

In a revealing report, “Meet the Syrian Islamist Organization Controlling Senator McCain’s Agenda,” Front Page magazine’s Daniel Greenfield calls attention to the fact that a group headed by people with extreme ties and beliefs is dominating American foreign policy on Syria and controlling the itinerary of senior senators like John McCain.

The article brings into sharp focus Mouaz Moustafa, who previously did stints as a Field Organizer for the Democratic National Committee and as a senate staffer. The 28-year-old calls himself a “Freelance Revolutionary.”  He also boasts about having White House access and control over where the weapons go.

While advocating for greater intervention in Syria, Moustafa says he has gone to Tampa to meet with U.S. Central Command, to Capitol Hill to meet with members of Congress and to the White House “every couple of months,” to meet with staff of the National Security Council.

The Tampa connection is significant. We covered it last year in this post, which includes a link to this exposé by conservative political commentator Debbie Schlussel.


Religion of Peace update

September 7, 2013

It’s been some time since we’ve posted one of these installments, but this latest news cries out for a restart. The Daily Caller’s article is two pages in length. Be sure to read the complete and shocking article.

Regardless of where any of us stand on the issue of U.S. military intervention in Syria, these are not people to negotiate with. They are international thugs perverting religion to accomplish their ultimate goals.


Jeb Bush opting out of 2016 presidential race?

September 6, 2013

Set to bestow honor on Hillary Clinton Sept. 10th

In a move guaranteed to ensure failure as he sets his sights on the 2016 Republican nomination for president, Jeb Bush will present Hillary Clinton with the 2013 Liberty Medal in “recognition of her lifelong career in public service.”

The insulting ceremony is scheduled one day short of one year after the Benghazi terrorist attack that took place September 11, 2012.  As Secretary of State, Clinton engaged in a lengthy campaign of lies and despicable obfuscation, attempting to conceal the truth of the massacre that left 4 Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens. 

The State Department knew minutes after the siege began that terrorists were attacking the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, but the Obama administration hacks denied knowledge, relentlessly and misleadingly blaming the siege on a few dissidents allegedly upset over an anti-Muslim YouTube video.

Clinton conveniently became too ill to testify on the matter when called before a congressional committee. Here she is after her miraculous recovery, asking “What difference at this point does it make?”

For a review of  Jeb Bush’s stance on the issues, this March 6 post on his Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution,” book-pushing tour with his co-author Clint Bolick of the Goldwater Institute should be enlightening.

Jeb Bush’s campaign obituary can be read here.


Celebrating Obama brings “significant” terror threat

August 5, 2013

Warnings of “big” and “strategically significant” planned attack

With the election of Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th President of the United States in 2008, and reelection in 2012, Americans were told we would win admiration from around the globe.

Yet the occasion of his 52nd birthday Sunday, began the unprecedented weeklong closing of U.S. embassies and consulates in 21 predominantly Muslim countries and an expansive cautionary warning about travel during August that the State Department issued on Friday.

The State Department quickly reacted to quell concerns, configuring the closures as routine, saying the extended shut downs were “not an indication of a new threat stream.” We were told, “given that a number of our embassies and consulates were going to be closed in accordance with local custom and practice for the bulk of the week for the Eid celebration at the end of Ramadan, and out of an abundance of caution, we’ve decided to extend the closure of several embassies and consulates.”

News sources tell another story. The Washington Times reports that key Democrat and Republican members of Congress said Sunday that the terrorism threat reportedly triggered by an intercepted message between senior al-Qaeda operatives is the most serious threat in years, with some warning that the it is an indication the terrorist group responsible for the 9/11 attacks still poses a significant danger to the U.S.

U.S. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, (D-MD) — the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee — said the intercepted communications called for a “major attack.” We received information that high level people from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula are talking about a major attack,” he said. “And these are people at a high level. It’s a very credible threat and it’s based on intelligence,” he continued. “What we have to do now is the most important issue, is protect Americans throughout the world.” He also commented on the threat’s al-Qaeda connection, saying “We know that al-Qaeda and other people out there want to attack us and kill us and our allies.”

Just a year ago, Barack Obama continually bragged that al-Qaeda was on the run, but has dropped that from his talking points. In fact, his failed policies have put the United States and American citizens on the defensive.

We were assured that Obama’s Islamic background would charm the terrorists into liking us. Soon after Obama was initially elected, he went on an apology tour of the Middle East, bowing to Muslim royals and even speaking in Arabic.

 And today we are worse off than when this farce began.
