AZ Republic cheers the demise of E Pluribus Unum

December 15, 2014

“Out of many, one” transmogrifies into “out of one, many” as unity takes back seat to diversity

The Periódico de la República de Arizona’s (Arizona Republic‘s) dual agendas of amnesty for illegals and promotion of same-sex issues, have matured and given birth to a rowdy youngster named Diversity.

The celebration of diversity, tinged with the not-so-veiled threat of the coming minority status of today’s European-ethnic majority has stepped front and center, elbowing the longtime favorites to the sidelines.

Like the carnival midway it has become, the newspaper now has a new go-to attraction known as the “Changing Face of America.” Our nation’s motto, E Pluribus Unum —- Latin for “Out of many, one” —- is teetering on the brink of extinction, with diversity based separatism grabbing the limelight in this ongoing series.

Sunday’s five-page splash followed three teens “who have long had one date etched in their minds,” that being “Nov. 8, 2016, Election Day, and the day all three will turn 18.”

On Saturday, we were treated to a skew by reporter David Gonzalez, who noted he was wearing a dark blue suit, and described his speech to the United Nations on World Cities Day, dealing with….what else?  Increasing diversity, of course.  His report centered on being invited to speak to a conference whose goal is to “make sure American cities become socially inclusive as they become increasingly diverse.” His complaint is that “many immigrants remain invisible.”

Gonzalez, it turns out,  is quite the linguistic contortionist. In employing over 1900 words in his report, he used the word “immigration” 14 times, “immigrants” 20, “without legal status,” twice, “unauthorized migrants,” only once, “illegal” (“the debate over illegal immigration”) once, “undocumented” a single time, and “illegal alien” not at all.

Rather than finding strength uniting us as proud Americans in the manner of  previous generations of grateful legal immigrants, we are separating along ethnic fissures. Most disturbing is the fact that America’s twice-elected first black president, has presided over and exacerbated the deterioration of race relations, according to this Bloomberg Politics Poll.

Americans are witnessing the result of the invasion of our nation by a flood of people who came here in violation of our laws and national sovereignty —- now aided and abetted by Obama’s illegal executive amnesty and shameful congressional inertia. They do not value our history, language or way of life, which is clearly evident as they march through our streets making demands or walking over, spitting on and desecrating the American flag (video) during a patriotic event at the Arizona Capitol.

Rather than immigrating through the proper channels, and becoming part of the fabric of this great country, they have come here to access our legendary generosity and turn this country into a replica of the downtrodden and crime infested one they left. Should it be much of a surprise they are unwelcome?


Psst…“Don’t tell anybody I said that”

These ignoramuses with titles teach our kids

Illustrating the topic “How they came to power,” Dr. Blake Armstrong, a psychology professor at South Texas College in Weslaco, Texas was recorded (video under link) as he likened the rise of the tea party to the rise of the Nazi party. The school is a public community college supported by taxpayers.

Armstrong began his lecture saying, “In 1931, which was really interesting, the Nazis —- people were kind of tired of them. They’ve been around since 1920, 11 years now. They’ve won seats —- they’re like the tea party. That’s such a good example,” Armstrong smugly noted. “Don’t tell anybody I said that, though.”

“But in the sense of how they politically came to power, there’s a good analogy there. That eventually people realized, ‘Oh, these Nazis are a bunch of nuts,’ ‘These tea party people are a bunch of nuts.’ I mean, the analogy really is a good analogy,” he concluded.

No, Professor Armstrong.  The analogy really is a vile one, based in leftwing deceit and moral relativism.

The tea party rose up out of citizen frustration. It is not actually a party, but a gathering of Americans united in their desire to return our United States to its constitutionally based roots. Last we heard they did not have forced labor death camps or gas chambers and ovens such as those in which the Nazis systematically murdered millions of those they deemed “undesirables.”

In another video, Armstrong says “civil disobedience just doesn’t work anymore.  All these people are joining ISIL, because they feel like the rest of the world is abandoning them —- which we are.”

Let’s hope so. Armstrong might have missed the numerous reports depicting these fanatics beheading innocent Westerners.

South Texas College needs to reassess its association with Blake Armstrong. He is unworthy of holding a position of trust and the ability to influence captive audiences in his classroom.


Credibility problems with lawyers defending Obama’s overreach

November 25, 2014

April Fool’s Day is still months away, but the gags keep coming

The U.S. Department of Justice recently released a letter* citing 10 legal academics at colleges across the country defending Barack Obama’s imperial executive action —- bypassing congress —- which grants amnesty to millions of foreign nationals who have illegally entered the United States.

But while the DOJ touts these professors’ prominence, their neutrality is certainly questionable.

In the letter, the legal scholars say they don’t always see eye-to-eye on presidential power and immigration policy, but that they “are all of the view that these actions are lawful.”

Of the 10 letter signers, seven are registered Democrats. Two live in states that don’t release party affiliation, but they both donate exclusively to Democrat candidates. The lone Republican, Eric Posner, is also an exclusive Democrat donor and has repeatedly written that Obama can literally “do whatever he wants” when it comes to executive authority.

Three of the lawyers work at the University of Chicago, where Obama taught constitutional law.

Another, Lee Bollinger, is the president of Columbia University, where Obama did his undergrad work. Bollinger is also directly involved in the effort to make Columbia the site of Obama’s presidential library.

Duke University professor Walter Dellinger, another who signed the letter, served in the Clinton administration and has an ongoing friendship with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, who was nominated by Obama.

Finally, there’s Laurence Tribe, a mentor to Obama at Harvard Law School, who called him “the best student I ever had and the most exciting research assistant.” He also campaigned for Obama.

* The DOJ letter is missing from its website.

 


Obama’s raw contempt for constitution’s separation of powers & Update

November 21, 2014

Statements from Arizona’s D.C. delegation

The President of the United States, a onetime senior lecturer who later claimed to be a “constitutional law professor,” has shown his ineptness regarding the subject.

By unilaterally implementing his brazen amnesty scheme via executive order —- bypassing congress —- he has rejected the voice of America’s voters. Barack Obama has exceeded his authority for what he undoubtedly views as  pure political gain.

This is Obama speaking more rationally to a live Univision audience in March 2011:

“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case,” Obama said at the time.

“We’ve got three branches of government,” he instructs.  “Congress passes the law, the executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws and then the judiciary has to interpret the laws,” he says.

“For me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”

When Obama was first sworn into office he had large Democrat majorities in both the Senate and the House. They were so large he could have designed and passed a bill exclusively through the Democrats. Instead he pushed healthcare reform and gun control bills. Now after a major 2014 midterm election loss repudiating his policies, and putting both the Senate and House in GOP control, an angry Obama has bypassed congress altogether.  This comes despite the fact that he has repeatedly acknowledged he does not have the authority to take such action.

Obama’s sagging polling numbers speak volumes. He will have no legacy as he leaves office in two years. Still, the question remains, are his actions legal?

Update-tag

These are the responses to Obama’s executive order under “press releases” from Arizona’s Republican members of congress. Rep. Trent Franks has a page titled “In the News.” His most recent newsworthy issue does not address this massive overstep of presidential authority.

Obama 2011: Executive order on amnesty “not appropriate”

Obama 2014: Eagerly embraces Mexico’s poverty exportation scheme as political retaliation

The news is rife with speculation that lame-duck President Barack Obama intends to unveil a series of executive orders that will shield millions of illegal aliens living in the U. S. from deportation, while granting them work permits and access to taxpayer-funded benefits.

His timing is odd, given that the Nov. 4 midterm elections repudiated Obama’s policies —- including those making America an illegal alien sanctuary nation, with an intentionally unenforceable border. Voters across the nation spoke clearly by turning the senate to a Republican majority as well as retaining the House and GOP governorship dominance by even greater margins. Obama’s response is to engage in a flagrant and lawless assault on our constitution to enact measures wrathfully calculated to increase the Democrat voter base.

Democrat duplicity abounds. Obama was pressured to suspend such actions by his own political partisans concerned about the effect amnesty would have on their reelections. These self-serving liberal congressional stalwarts supported Obama’s agenda more than 90 percent of the time.

Of crucial importance is the fact our porous border provides entry to all comers, many who intend harm to America and her citizens. Obama, however, puts his leftist ideology before America’s security.

How do struggling American citizens, many still unemployed or underemployed, benefit by having at least 5 million suddenly legalized foreign workers competing for jobs while undercutting salaries? The new action will expand Obama’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policies, which are already pitting our college-bound students against the now legitimized influx for university placement. 

By now it should be clear that Democrats stock in trade is not putting Americans first and lying about it. This is Obama speaking to a live Univision audience in March 2011. Univision television, based in New York, is an American Spanish language broadcast network with major production facilities in Florida.

“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case,” Obama said at the time.

“We’ve got three branches of government,” he instructs.  “Congress passes the law, the executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws and then the judiciary has to interpret the laws,” he says.

“For me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”


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.


GOP voters dissatisfied with party’s amnesty stance

September 24, 2014

Two new polls stand as evidence of a dramatic shift in priorities among Republican voters as they assess their party leadership.  A newly released Pew Research poll finds that a majority of Republicans think their party is not representing their views on illegal immigration. 

Just 37% of Republicans and self-identified Republican “leaners” think the GOP is doing a good job representing their views on illegal immigration while a massive 56% say the party is not doing a good job.

These findings follow last week’s Gallop poll which also indicates illegal immigration and its costly repercussions has grown to the leading concern among Republicans.

Despite these numbers, the establishment elites in the Republican Party continue to press for what they now slyly refer to as a “piecemeal,” or incremental approach to implementing comprehensive amnesty legislation which would further alienate the GOP base. 

In fact, the issue is eclipsing all others. What many now refer to as the “illegal invasion” rose from 4% to 15% among all adults as the top problem. Gallup reported that “in the past three months, 20% of national adults who self-identify as Republican named illegal immigration as a top issue, compared with 8% of Democrats. In the first half of the year, a nearly identical 4% of Republicans and 3% of Democrats referred to the issue the country’s most important problem.”

The poll found that a third of Republicans (33%) say their party has not done a good job on illegal immigration because it is too willing to allow foreign nationals living illegally in the U.S. to gain legal status.

Republicans who believe in the rule of law are speaking. Are their members of congress listening?
