Riggs mocked for staying fit, silence on Flake’s ego trip

July 19, 2014

“A tough guy for a tough job”

Gubernatorial candidate Frank Riggs’ latest campaign ad juxtaposes a few seconds of shots of the 62-year-old former U.S. Congressman working out as it lists his numerous credentials qualifying him for Arizona’s top office.

Leave it to the leftist Arizona Republic newspaper to use the ad to ridicule Riggs, in a bit of tripe titled, “I’m too sexy for my shirt.”

Riggs, also an army vet, a former police officer and a deputy sheriff, begins the pitch with “Arizona needs a strong governor,” and tags his commercial with “Sure it’s a tough job, and I’m just the guy to do it.”

Speaking himself rather than using a paid voice-over announcer, he says, “Big changes take hard work. As governor I’ll protect public safety….Finally secure our border….I’ll fight federal overreach and the Obamatization of Arizona ….by repealing Common Core on Day One and stopping Medicaid Expansion. And I’ll fix the state budget and get our economy growing again.  Sure it’s a tough job….and I’m just the guy to do it.

The same newspaper went silent in 2009 when then-congressman Jeff Flake, in his 40’s at the time, took a solo vacation on a deserted Pacific island with only his tripod and camera to keep him company. He sent shirtless photos of himself to the immediate world and got a pass.

We covered the preening Flake, when he didn’t cover himself —-  and the local newspaper looked the other way. The egocentric Flake even sent his pics to the liberal Washington Post. His shirtless adventure was covered in a Reason magazine piece cleverly titled, Rep. Jeff Flake goes on island vacation, catches crabs, and he milked his beefcaking on in this televised interview.

Hypocritical double standards exist at the amnesty pushing Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic). Republicrat Jeff Flake is solidly onboard with their leftwing agenda, so don’t look for objective reporting.


America speaks: illegal immigration top problem

July 18, 2014

Americans citing illegal immigration as the top problem surges to 17% this month, up from 5% just a month ago

Those who repeatedly refer to the invasion of the United States as a “humanitarian crisis,” need to rethink their misplaced compassion and place it in context with the facts.

Laura Ingraham got it right when she defined this as “an invasion facilitated by our own government”  —- which we refer to as the “Obama regime.”

Our cultures are world’s apart from Mexico, Central and South America. As an example, on Thursday the South American country of Bolivia passed legislation allowing 10-year-olds to be able to work, and sets 12 as the minimum age for a child to work under contract. 

It’s estimated that 1 million Bolivian children work regularly, accounting for 15 percent of the workforce. They toil in factories, on farms and as street vendors, coca leaf pickers and porters at markets. One in three don’t attend school. Bolivia’s previous labor code permitted no exceptions to a minimum age of 14. The new measure was approved by Bolivia’s leftist President Evo Morales, a former trade union activist.

Americans are finally beginning to take notice of the long-lasting and negative impact of the influx of uneducated, impoverished and often diseased populations. The most recent Gallup poll identifies the issue this way: “With thousands of undocumented immigrant minors crossing the nation’s southern border in recent months, the percentage of Americans citing immigration as the top problem has surged to 17% this month, up from 5% in June, and the highest seen since 2006. As a result, immigration now virtually ties “dissatisfaction with government,” at 16%, as the primary issue Americans think of when asked to name the country’s top problem.”

Gallup, hardly considered a conservative leaning pollster, still acknowledges that when respondents were asked to say which party can better handle the issue, “the results are relatively positive for the Republicans.” This is similar to the Republicans’ positioning on this question in 2010, shortly before voters gave the GOP a sweeping victory in the midterm House elections. Republicans were also practically tied with Democrats in 1994 and 2002 —- both years when the GOP fared well in the midterms, Gallup concludes.

Conservative Dave Brat’s stunning 56 – 44 percent victory over amnesty-pushing House Majority Leader Eric Cantor should signal continuing good news in the upcoming congressional elections. Voters must vigilantly discern that those with an “R” after their name are the real deal.

Arizona conservatives, who have Republicrat agents of deception John McCain and Jeff Flake as U.S. Senators, can attest to the fact that the con is turned to high pitch during campaign season, only to have the amnesty proponents revert to their long-held open borders agenda, and collude with Democrats immediately after the ballots are counted.

 


Patriots assemble in Oracle, AZ to protest invasion

July 15, 2014

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, speaking at a Townhall meeting in Saddlebrook Monday evening told the approximately 200 people in attendance that his office only recently learned of plans to bring 40 to 60 illegal youth to Sycamore Canyon Boys Ranch in Oracle.

Babeu said he has attempted to contact Homeland Security expressing public safety and health concerns. But overall, he told the audience, he feels he’s being kept in the dark by the feds.

He confirmed the Boys Ranch facility has increased staff by 30 people in anticipation of the new arrivals and he has vowed, “We will not let up, that’s our job to provide public safety to the families that are there.”

Between 500 and 700 people, are expected in Oracle today. The leftwing Tucson Weekly a reliable arm of Arizona’s Democrat Party, and replete with missteps, ran this goofy coverage of angel emulators in support of the invasion, proving the People’s Republic of Pima is alive and well.

According to Richard Viguerie’s Conservative HQ, other protests around the state are scheduled to align with the National Protests Against Amnesty July 18-19, 2014. As part of  the largest coordinated protest against all forms of amnesty, comprehensive immigration reform, and Barack Obama’s complete failure to enforce immigration laws and secure our borders will begin, all across America.  The protests are scheduled to be held at state capitols, Mexican consulates, and on streets and overpasses coast-to-coast, including Hawaii and Alaska.  

Phoenix: AZ State Capitol, 1700 W Washington St, Phoenix, Arizona 85007, Friday, July 18, and Saturday, July 19. Both protests begin at 6:00 am. Attendees are advised to arrive as early as possible due to high temperatures.

Kingman: I-40 & Andy Devine Overpass, Friday, July 18, 8:00am – 11:00am. This protest will take place on the Overpass.

Seeing Red AZ welcomes updates from Oracle by patriots in attendance at today’s demonstration.


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.”


Costco plays politics — far left version

July 10, 2014

Big-box wholesaler Costco has pulled Dinesh D’Souza’s  new book, “America: Imagine a World Without Her,” just after the nationwide release of the companion movie —- but Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti claims the decision was not motivated by political considerations.

The book, strongly critical of Barack Obama, was officially released June 2. A corporate decision to return the books was issued July 1, just as it is about to debut on the New York Times bestseller list.

Galanti confirmed to Jerome Corsi at WND the “pull order” was in effect and that D’Souza’s book is in the process of being removed from Costco stores this week, with the goal to have all copies of his book out of Costco stores nationwide and shipped back to the vendor no later than July 15.

He claims the decision to pull the book was not political but was based solely on sales, arguing Costco’s national goal is to market books that show up on the New York Times bestseller list.

The book will make the New York Times list July 13.

Jim Sinegal, co-founder of Costco, endorsed Barack Obama (video) at the Democratic National Convention in 2012. In total, Costco has given $100,000 to Obama and another $100,000 to Priorities USA, the pro-Obama super PAC. Sinegal was the author of an email blast sent out by the Obama campaign in July 2012. Obama also held a fundraiser at Sinegal’s house in Seattle.

Read “Costco removing D’Souza’s “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” from shelves. and then decide if you want to keep supporting this radical leftist and funding his donations to a regime dedicated to destroying America. This update, “Costco denies political motive for pulling D’Souza’s book,” expands upon the sorry saga.  

In January, Obama paid a visit to a Costco store in a Washington, D.C., suburb, “proving,” as Jaime Fuller of the Washington Post commented, “that his administration’s romance with the second-largest retailer in America is stronger than ever —- and might just be the most successful union of a politician and a supermarket in American history.”

Watch as D’Souza discusses his film:

 Then make plans to see it. 


Obama regime reconfigures invasion as “a humanitarian crisis” needing $billions

July 9, 2014

Just when you think Barack Obama might have exhausted his ideas on how to bring the United States of America to its knees, he has pulled yet another Marxist scheme from his endless bag of tricks.

Now he is requesting a nearly $4 billion taxpayer-funded bailout to resettle the reported 52,000 “immigrant children” flooding our borders.  The words “humanitarian crisis” with or without the word “urgent,“ are glibly tossed around as he is now characterizes the onslaught as “refugees” fleeing political turbulence in Central America.

This is a “crisis” contrived by Obama.

We are told the money is needed to set up new detention facilities, conduct more aerial surveillance, hire more immigration judges and Border Patrol agents to respond to the contrived assault of 52,000 children on the U.S.

Let’s not forget that the Obama regime has spent years saying the border has never been more secure than it is now. We’ve heard that mantra from Obama and previously from former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano in her role as chief of Homeland Security as well as during her time in our state. Infamous for inaction as she ridiculed fence construction, Napolitano continually stated, “You show me a 50-foot wall and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder. That’s the way the border works.”

Wake up, America! Under the Obama regime, we are experiencing a brand of previously unknown political turbulence ourselves. The wall we were promised has never materialized. In fact, we were told it would pose a risk to our invaders. The National Guard units dispatched to provide security to our homeland were hastily withdrawn. The $20 million highly touted technology failed. Obama’s deceitful cheap talk and costly “solutions” are fraudulent.

In the worst economy since the Great Depression, the man who considers our Constitution an annoyance and himself an emperor, now tries to convince us to pony up more money to guarantee Third World status for ourselves.

As a border state, Arizona is on the front lines in this battle. Violent drug cartels have now taken over the illegal alien transporting business. Patriots in California have blocked the buses dumping illegals in their towns. The recent Independence Day observances should energize us to stand up against oppression from an overreaching government. That’s exactly what the yearly celebrations commemorate.

Listen as Obama —- the elected leader of the United States, sworn to uphold our Constitution and protect American citizens —- boldly mocks security efforts and spews lies regarding the border.

 


9th Circus: AZ’s denial of illegals driver’s licenses based in “animosity”

July 8, 2014

Brewer calls DACA program “President Obama’s lawless directive”

In a unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals it has been ordered that “DREAMers allowed to work in the U.S. by virtue of one of Barack Obama’s infamous executive orders, also must be issued Arizona driver’s licenses.

The Ninth Circuit, often referred to as the Ninth Circus, is the most overturned court in the nation. The judges on the panel —- political appointees of Presidents Carter, Clinton and Obama —- rendered their ruling Monday.

The court rejected arguments by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer that she was entitled to deny licenses to those in the federal government’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The appeals court ordered U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell, to direct the state Department of Transportation to provide licenses to those who are in that program.

Among the completely unverifiable provisions referred to in the decision are the DACA eligibility factors —- including the claim that they were brought to the United States before the age of sixteen and were under thirty-one years old as of June 15, 2012. They must have been living in the United States when DACA was announced and have continuously resided in the United States for at least the previous five years; and they must have graduated from high school, or obtained a GED, or have been honorably discharged from the U.S. Armed Forces, or be currently enrolled in school. Additionally, they must not pose any threat to public safety. Anyone who has been convicted of multiple misdemeanors, single significant misdemeanor, or any felony offense is supposedly ineligible for DACA.

Attempting to prove any of these ages, dates or status, is a fool’s errand. Names and other pertinent identifying information are routinely altered making proof of criminal offenses an enterprise with the incentives far greater than fear of discovery.

Arizona is dealing with an illegal community where forged, stolen or otherwise counterfeit documents to underwrite life in the United States is de rigueur.  Identity theft is a major criminal enterprise especially evident in border states. The intent is to provide documents to facilitate the lives of foreign nationals illegally entering the U.S.

The Ninth Circuit Court’s opinion can be read here.

Gov. Jan Brewer’s strongly worded, single page response to the ruling can be read here.


Invasion USA: The tsunami of illegals

July 6, 2014

In a pre-election speech given on Oct. 30, 2008 Barack Obama promised he intended to fundamentally transform America. He is well on his way. Anyone who looked closely at the man and the influences that shaped who he would become, risked being called a racist, a nativist, a bigot and a redneck yahoo. He was the messiah everyone was waiting for.

The ruins of American foreign policy are not likely to catch the attention of a culture drunk on the entertainment of the trivial, the trifling and the unimportant. But everybody begins to notice when the chaos comes close, when those responsible for monitoring the border begin to tremble and sag under the weight of a tsunami of illegal immigration. The scary implications for the future of the exceptional nation begins to weigh on Congress.

This week, a Texas congressman who does not have the luxury of looking the other way because he sees trouble in every direction he looks, said what the nice people think must never be said. The tsunami will change everything.

“Either we’re going to enforce our laws and remain strong, economically or otherwise, or we ignore the rule of law and go to being a Third World country,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican, told Fox News. “You’ve got to follow the law. You cannot bring hundreds of thousands of people in this country without destroying the country. Then there’s no place that people can dream about coming.”

Read editor emeritus Wesley Pruden’s complete Washington Times article “An immigrant surge en route to a Third World USA“— This is the ‘fundamental transformation’ Obama promised

Knowledge is power. If you are concerned about the future of our great country, Pruden’s commentary, excerpted here, is definitely a worthy read.

Then make time for this updated version of immigration author and journalist Roy Beck’s powerful presentation of data compiled from the World Bank and U.S. Census Bureau. The 1996 version of this immigration gumballs presentation has been one of the most viewed immigration policy presentations on the internet. Watch it and you’ll see why:

 


US Supreme Court lobs a major blow at ObamaCare

June 30, 2014

Today’s 5 – 4 U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down ObamaCare’s employer paid contraception and abortificides —- abortion inducing drug  —– mandate is a decisive victory for religious freedom.  Barack Obama’s efforts at the socialization of American health care has suffered a major setback.

This decision is even a more significant triumph since it is the first time that the high court has ruled that for-profit businesses can hold religious views under federal law.

On June 28, 2012, Chief Justice John Roberts stunned conservatives by joining with the liberal Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor—– as he shockingly cast the deciding vote upholding the ‘Affordable Care Act,’ which Obama viewed as his signature domestic achievement. The flagrant and massive federal overreach into American’s personal health care decisions is widely known as ObamaCare. Here is a montage of Obama’s repeated lies.*

In today’s decision, Justice Samuel Alito wrote the majority opinion. Justice Anthony Kennedy, often a swing vote, voted with the majority. The court’s four liberal justices hung tight, with Ginsburg writing the dissent.

The decision in Burwell, Secretary of Health and Human Services, et al v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., (joined by Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp.) can be read here in its entirety.

Nancy Pelosi: Illegal invasion is “an opportunity”

June 28, 2014

Grandma of 9 wishes she could take all the bright-eyed children home with her

In a stunning example of radically liberal thinking, far-left party hack Nancy Pelosi —- speaking Saturday at a press conference at a temporary border holding facility —- has declared the unchecked invasion of the United States is merely an “opportunity, not a crisis.“  Essentially declaring American sovereignty irrelevant, Pelosi stated, “This is a community, with a border going through it.”

Adding more of  her own peculiar brand of hypocrisy, she wished aloud that she could take the thousands of children flooding over our southern border, “home with her.”

No one is stopping her.

Money certainly wouldn’t be an issue. Pelosi’s number 15 on Roll Call’s list of wealthiest members of Congress, with a minimum net worth of $24.45 million.

Using her soft-toned Harry Reid voice, California Democrat Pelosi preferred to characterize this cataclysmic invasion, of our nation not  as a crisis, but as a “opportunity.”

According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, in the past fiscal year more than 52,000 unaccompanied minors have crossed the border into the United States through Mexico. Although many are Mexican nationals, the majority in this recent flood are Central Americans, arriving from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

Take a look at this updated list of Border Patrol numbers as of June 15, 2014.
