Federal Courts redefine marriage in Arizona

October 18, 2014

The pro-same sex marriage Arizona Republic crows over the now legal unions with blazing headlines, oversized photos and six pages of gushing splash. The Page One bold headline in oversized, all caps type face, blasts, “LAWFULLY WED.”

As bible-believing conservatives, Seeing Red AZ would more appropriately remove the first “L” in the headline. But as realists in these times of political correctness, elevation of contrived “victimization” status to respectability, and liberal federal courts with unelected judges, overturning the will of the voting citizens in state after state, it was clear this was bound to happen.

Arizona Attorney Tom Horne, who has fought to defend traditional marriage, issued this press release regarding the Federal District Court and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rulings against Arizona. He notes the United States Supreme Court’s unwillingness to accept review in the case of three other circuits in essentially identical circumstances. There is an additional section providing background at the end of the press release. The Attorney General’s Office filed a brief on October 16, advising the court that the Latta decision is not yet considered final under Ninth Circuit case law, and requesting that Judge John Sedwick refrain from issuing any ruling based on Latta until it becomes final. Despite the Arizona Attorney General’s request, U.S. District Court Judge Sedwick issued an order and injunction declaring Arizona’s traditional marriage laws unconstitutional and prohibiting Arizona officials from enforcing the Arizona laws that ban marriage between persons of the same sex

During his 2008 presidential campaign Barack Obama made many promises to various constituencies of the Democrat Party, including the gay/lesbian lobby. Repeal of the 1996 Defense Of Marriage Act was on his “to do” list, and the divided court complied by gutting key sections in 2013. He also called for a law to extend various benefits to domestic partners, which was initially the foundation of the “marriage” effort. Dissenting Justice Antonin Scalia wrote. “I promise you this: The only thing that will ‘confine’ the court’s holding is its sense of what it can get away with.”

Last year, even Pope Francis, who represents the Roman Catholic Church to millions worldwide, and is not legally bound by the heavy hand of liberal, agendized federal courts, disappointingly took the path of least resistance, rhetorically asking,  “Who am I to judge?” The answer was, of course, “You’re the Pope, for God‘s sake!”

We live in times our nation’s Founders could never have envisioned.


Small reason Republicans must win US Senate

October 17, 2014

Puny Harry Reid’s bodyguard physically attacks reporter

Journalist Jason Mattera was recently pinned to the wall by one of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s goons.

Mattera, exercising his Constitutionally guaranteed First Amendment rights, is the author of “Crapitalism.”

Reid, 74, a far leftist from Nevada, did not respond to repeated questions from CNSNews.com about whether American citizens who try to ask him a question in the Capitol hallway should be physically barred from doing so by Capitol Police —- as happened when reporter Mattera introduced himself, shook Reid’s hand, and asked him a question about how he became a millionaire on a government salary. Reid’s been at the public trough since 1969.

AZ Republic explains endorsement of Republican

October 15, 2014

Some of the remaining readers of the far left daily newspaper have questioned the rationale for the endorsement of a Republican for governor of Arizona

A Republican, you say?

To respond to their dismay, the newspaper hauled out the opinions editor Robert Ledger to engage in a Q & A on this gut-wrenching topic causing more than a bit of angst among the liberals who still shell out too much for a daily infusion of leftist bias.

Taking time away from the relentless promotion of same-sex marriage and amnesty for America’s illegal invaders, the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) sends out its call for reshaping the state via its endorsements

It’s been a difficult dry period for liberals. All state offices and the majority of the 90 members of the state legislature are Republicans. The Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Treasurer, Superintendent of Public Instruction and Corporation Commissioners were entrusted to Republicans by the voters of the state of Arizona.  Maricopa County, the fourth most populous county in the United States, also boasts a lineup of Republican elected officials.

Now like the answer to a prayer of Biblical proportions, all of the statewide offices are up for grabs.  The editorial board is in a state of disbelief that such monumental good fortune is playing out before their very eyes. In response, they have endorsed Democrat retread Samuel Pearson “Terry” Goddard, III for Secretary of State —- an inconsequential post that has frequently been a direct ascension route to the governor’s office.

Felecia Rotellini, another liberal, is the newspaper’s pick for Attorney General. The Treasurer’s Office was won by default by the Republican, since Democrats —- self acknowledged bad money managers —- didn’t bother to field a candidate in that race.  In the race for Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction, the daily pushes Common Core proponent, David Garcia and they advise “splitting the ticket” for the two vacant seats on the Corporation Commission.

In congressional races with challengers, the newspaper endorses the marginal Ann Kirkpatrick (Dem. CD-1), and fawns over openly bisexual  self-proclaimed atheist and radical leftist Kyrsten Sinema (Dem. CD-9), calling her “a force of nature.” Hispanic Republican Gabby Saucedo Mercer, (CD-3) a splendid choice to take out extremist Raul Grijalva, goes unmentioned.

The editorial board recommends Republican Air Force Col. Martha McSally (ret.) over incumbent Democrat Rep. Ron Barber in CD-2. The newspaper compliments her “impressive grasp of foreign policy.”

So the daily’s support of Doug Ducey? 

It’s a no-brainer. Democrat Fred Duval is so problematic even the far left Arizona Republic realizes his potential to be a drag on the rest of the ticket. Besides, Ducey carries enough McEstablishment endorsers to make him palatable.


Leftist lies: Ebola, amnesty, ISIS terrorists on border

October 14, 2014

News from the U. S. Department of Defense regarding the deadly Ebola virus sparks major concerns as Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, makes grim predictions.  Kelly says the Ebola virus will not be contained in West Africa, and if infected people flee those countries and spread the disease to Central and South America, it could cause “mass migration into the United States” of those seeking treatment.

“If the disease gets to countries like Guatemala, Honduras or El Salvador, it will cause a panic and people will flee the region,” Gen. Kelly said last week in remarks to the National Defense University. “They will run away from Ebola, or if they suspect they are infected, they will try to get to the United States for treatment.

Yet Barack Obama assures us the chances of an Ebola outbreak in U.S. are extremely lo (video).

Juxtapose General Kelly’s concerns against the blasé attitude of California’s radical leftist senior Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 81.  She recently wrote this commentary, for the San Diego Union Tribune, in which she unequivocally declared the border secure, saying thoughts to the contrary were based on “false fears.”

“The bottom line” she asserts, “is that the southern border is more secure than ever.”  Feinstein assures readers that  time has come to pass “immigration reform,“ —- more accurately known as amnesty —- deceitfully claiming “the border security package included in the Senate-passed comprehensive immigration reform bill would further lock it down.” She offers empty assurances that a pending bill addresses “border security.”

It does not.

As a case in point, Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles confirms the fact that 4 ISIS terrorists have been captured on the border as they recently entered Texas via Mexico. How many have passed through undetected is anyone’s guess.

Seeing Red AZ postedHezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns,” in 2011. It includes a link to a disturbing newscast from ABC 10 News in San Diego, which should have sounded the alarm, but didn’t.

Turkey, integral to Obama’s “broad coalition” is now disputing his claim it will let U.S. aircraft fly from an American base into Iraq and Syria to fight ISIS. The Muslim country’s Istanbul University has become a haven for the terrorist group.

Still, Obama, Feinstein, Harry Reid and liberals of their ilk who care more about expanding the Democrat base than the safety and security of America’s citizens, continue to be reelected. They are joined by long-in-the-tooth, establishment RINOs epitomized by John McCain, in D.C. over well over three decades, and “shortimer” Jeff Flake, first elected in 2000. Voting for amnesty supporters is voting against our country’s best interests. Think about that as you mark your ballots.


Still going to the movies? THIS is what you support

October 12, 2014

It’s well known that Barack Obama’s “eloquent” delivery is reliant on a teleprompter.  Now we see that Oscar award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow is not so articulate without a script.

Recently, sans script, Paltrow evidenced speaking difficulties as she hosted a fundraiser benefiting the Democrat National Committee at her Brentwood/Mandeville Canyon estate. With Obama standing beside her, she attempted to introduce him to the crowd of several hundred supporters who paid up to $15,000 per plate for dinner in her back yard. Attendees included actors Julia Roberts and Bradley Whitford.

Overcome with passion at the prospect of having Obama so close, Paltrow gushed, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.” She added, “I am one of your biggest fans, if not the biggest, and have been since the inception of your campaign.”

Paltrow, 42, then displayed her abysmal ignorance of, and contempt for, the U.S. Constitution and separation of powers —- the basic tenant of our government —- by saying, “It would be wonderful if we were able to give this man all of the power that he needs to pass the things that he needs to pass.”

She noted she admired the president for his efforts on sustainable energy, as well as his push for equal pay legislation, which she deemed “very important to me as a working mother.” Forbes listed poor Paltrow’s 2014 earnings at $19 million as of June.

Celebrity gossip site TMZ blasted both Paltrow’s embarrassing foolishness and what it described as “the latest example of how demeaning it has become for Presidents to act like circus animals — performing for crowds that will feed them … in this case, feed them with money to line political coffers.”

Obama had three other such events scheduled for this weekend.


Jihad? Obama’s PC admin prefers “workplace violence”

October 10, 2014

Radical Islamic terrorism: The words we dare not speak

On Nov. 5. 2009, Maj. Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist and radical Islamist opened fire at a Fort Hood, Texas processing facility where soldiers were readying for overseas deployment. Hasan was convicted of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder, in the bloody massacre.  During his jihadist rampage, Hasan screamed, “Allahu Akbar!” (“Allah is Great!”)

Yet the U.S. Department of Defense continues to define this carnage as “workplace violence.”  This is the final DOD Fort Hood shooting review in which the words militant jihadist or Muslim extremist are missing, but “workplace violence” appear.

Now Fox News reports Hasan has written to Pope Francis advocating “jihad,” and clearly aligning himself with radical Islam. Hasan previously described himself —- and again in the letter —- using the acronym “SoA,” or “Soldier of Allah.” And although he pledges his allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS) and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the defining words go unmentioned by our own government.

Hasan makes multiple references to the Koran in the letter, and includes a bulleted list of guidelines for “believers.” In one subsection titled “Jihad,” Hasan praises “The willingness to fight for All-Mighty Allah,” describing it as a test that elevates the “mujahadeen” who “are encouraged to inspire the believers.” He states that “fighters have a greater rank in the eyes of Allah than believers who don’t fight.”

On Sept. 25, Alton Nolan, a recent Muslim convert with a penchant for trying to bring his co-workers to Islam, was temporarily suspended from his job for proselytizing. In a rage, he viciously behead a female co-worker and repeatedly stabbed another, who survived the attack.

And predictably, Nolan’s sadistic assaults on the women, following a killing spree of highly publicized beheadings by the ISIS terrorists he revered on his web page, is referred to as …..”workplace violence.”

The cockpits of commandeered commercial aircraft were overtaken by 19 Muslim extremists who slaughtered nearly 3,000 people on American soil just 13 years ago. In his leadership role as President of the United States, George W. Bush never reconfigured that evil as “workplace violence.”

Barack Obama says “America is not, and will never be, at war with Islam.”  Busy with time on the golf course or vacationing, it must have escaped his notice, but Islamic factions appear to be at war with America.

Why is the truth so difficult for liberals to acknowledge?


Fred DuVal and his friends & Update

October 9, 2014

His choice of “acquaintances” speak to the core of the man

Saddam Hussein’s consultant threw a lavish farewell party for Arizona Democrat gubernatorial candidate Fred DuVal when DuVal left his post in the Clinton administration in 2001 to reestablish residency in Arizona, according to this Daily Caller report.

The report includes a substantiating link to the Washington Times, detailing the “impressive” double penthouse soiree on Cathedral Avenue NW where about 150 guests stopped by to wish career liberal lobbyist Fred DuVal well as he departed for Arizona.

With his move, DuVal was already setting in place the groundwork to run for governor of the state he had abandoned years earlier.

The party’s host, notorious fellow lobbyist and Washington insider, Edward J. von Kloberg III, greeted party guests while “donning black slippers embroidered with a devil holding a pitchfork,” the Washington Diplomat reported.

Von Kloberg, who dramatically committed suicide in 2005, served as a public affairs consultant for some of the world’s most despotic and tyrannical dictators including Saddam Hussein (Iraq), Mobutu Sese Seko (Congo), Samuel K. Doe (Liberia), Nicolae Ceausescu (Romanian genocidal butcher), among others. He was reportedly attempting to sign up North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il in 2001.

DuVal’s  campaign spokesman characterized their association an “acquaintanceship” and told the Daily Caller that criticism of their relationship is a “smear.”

The race was earlier said to be a dead heat. The Arizona Free Enterprise Club’s more recent poll results showing Ducey with a six-point lead can be seen here. Expect those numbers to soar in Ducey’s favor on the heels of the Daily Caller‘s revelation.

Update-tag

 

H/T to Night Owl for sending this Washington Times news link to the lavish farewell bash thrown for Fred DuVal by his close associate, the disreputable Edward J. von Kloberg III. With this substantiating evidence of the party DuVal claims not to remember, his memory might be jogged.

We include the link here.
