You can hear JD Hayworth again guest host for Mike Huckabee Tuesday, December 10 from 10:00 am-1:00 pm, AZ time.
Townhall’s Katie Pavlich has written a disturbing exposé regarding the radical Obama comrades brought on as new hires to oversee and manage immigration litigation as amnesty is front-burnered by the administration and its enthusiasts in the U.S. House and Senate.
Former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams writing for PJ Media has also done a masterful job researching the pro-amnesty and pro-asylum backgrounds of the new hires. In a country where normalcy reigned, these people would be revealed as reprehensible infiltrators intending to bring harm to the United States and criminally charged.
Michelle Malkin has written extensively about Thomas Perez, radical assistant attorney general for Obama’s DOJ Civil Rights Division and now Obama’s Secretary of Labor. (Senate confirmation vote here.)
Arizonans will remember that it was Perez who spearheaded the lawsuit against our state over our immigration enforcement measures and launched a three-year DOJ witch-hunt against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The vengeful investigation against Arpaio, the nation’s most outspoken local law enforcement official against illegal alien crime, was dropped without charges* by the DOJ in August of 2012. Malkin wrote that Perez was leading similar witch-hunts against police departments across the country based on leftwing junk science theories about racial “disparate impacts.”
To get a flavor of why Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is so admired, read his strong response to Perez’ intending-to-intimidate press conference December 15, 2011.
As expected, senate shamnesty gangsters John McCain, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham & Co. have folded like lawn chairs on Obamamnesty. Keep your eyes on our AZ House members and any attempts to sign on to what is being referred to as “piecemeal legislation,” but is in fact incremental steps toward full-blown amnesty. Rewarding criminality and demands with the great gift of American citizenship should not be on any of their agendas.

On his worst day, the random thoughts of Thomas Sowell are guaranteed to put most of our best day insights to shame. Conservative icon Sowell is a genius.
Before you head out for your holiday shopping today, give yourself a gift. Read Dr. Sowell’s most recent “Random Thoughts” column. It’s guaranteed to make you think. The final sentence in this column, in which he ponders various issues, decisively dissects the current occupant of the White House in this manner: “One of the reasons it has taken so long for some people to finally see through Barack Obama is that people do not like to admit, even to themselves, that they have been played for fools by a slick-talking politician.”

You can also hear JD Hayworth locally via tape delay on 1100am KFNX in Phoenix from 1:00 -3:00 pm. If you’re out shopping today, listen to him in the car on 1100am on your radio dial.
A dishonest independent expenditure (IE) group specializing in attack ads against Republicans has publicly apologized to Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne as part of his defamation lawsuit against the shadowy and disreputable clique.
The group, which admitted to falsifying information about Horne, actually has the audacity to call itself “Arizona Public integrity Alliance.”
The Center for Responsive Politics notes the lacking-in-integrity-alliance does not disclose its donors. They are obviously so proud of their underhanded tactics, they conceal their identities.
The group ran numerous television attack ads earlier this month claiming Horne was under investigation by the FBI, although that was untrue. The apology is part of the settlement agreement in the lawsuit Attorney General Horne brought against the group.
Rather than believe those with nefarious intent, scroll though the Attorney General’s website and see what Tom Horne and his Assistant Attorneys General have been doing on behalf of the citizens of the state of Arizona. This page explains the duties and numerous divisions of the largest law office in the state. Check out the many opinions (2011, 2012, 2013) and media releases for a more complete picture of what this fine Republican Attorney General has accomplished so far during his first term.
Arizona’s Attorney General Tom Horne is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse the ruling issued by the liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that an Arizona law passed as HB 2800 — stripping Medicaid funding from abortion providers — is unconstitutional.
Horne argues that Arizona has a right to deny Medicaid funding to abortion providers.
Planned Parenthood, Arizona’s largest abortion provider, will receive more than $1.5 billion in Medicaid subsidies, enabling abortion funding in direct contravention of the will of Arizona taxpayers, through the actions of their elected legislative representatives.
The same circuit court ruled that the Arizona law and another challenge brought by Attorney General Horne and Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery (Isaacson v. Horne) banning most abortions past 20 weeks of pregnancy (HB 2036) is also unconstitutional. In that case, the court reversed the ruling of then-Presiding U.S. (AZ) District Court Judge James Teilborg.
Horne, whose job it is to defend these laws, wants clarity in these fundamental life issues.
This March 27 post provides background regarding the expansion of funding for abortion providers. No wonder statewide GOP Legislative Districts have passed resolutions in opposition to Gov. Jan Brewer’s Medicaid Expansion in support of Obamacare.
Since fewer people read the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic), it’s not surprising that this front page report might have been missed. Headlined “Migrant vote-fraud cases are rare in Arizona,” the increasingly anorexic newspaper uses its “findings” to take pot shots at…who else…Republicans. The article names Gov. Jan Brewer, Attorney General Tom Horne and Secretary of State Ken Bennett among those asserting illegal voting is a problem. Bennett has recently announced his intention to run for AZ Governor.
In fact, the pro-amnesty, pro-open border radical newspaper harangues both Horne and Bennett for citing voter-fraud concerns as justification for continuing a federal court battle over state voter ID requirements. The daily also berates Republican lawmakers who have used the same argument forwarding a package of new election laws slated to appear on the November 2014 ballot.
The daily claims voter fraud cases in Maricopa County involving illegal aliens are nearly non-existent, and have been since before the changes to voter-ID requirements were enacted as the “Arizona Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act” or Prop. 200 in 2004 — by nearly 60 percent of Arizona voters — requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote. The newspaper account states that numbers of actual cases and convictions vary and the “descriptions of the alleged fraud become foggy or based on third-hand accounts.” Referring dismissively to illegal voting, the report says, “no one was convicted of a felony or given any jail time. A couple of the cases were dismissed; the other suspects pleaded guilty to misdemeanors and served a few months of probation.”
According to this convoluted mindset, lack of follow through on cases means fraud doesn’t exist.
Attorney General Tom Horne is unequivocal in his assertion that voter fraud by illegals is a problem in Arizona. “There are thousands of people who were non-citizens who registered to vote, and many of them voted,” he said.
Horne bases his statements on court testimony by county recorders, who said more than 200 people in a single year had stated on a jury duty summons that they were not citizens. “And jury forms only go to a small percentage of residents, so you have to multiply that to get the number of non-citizens who actually registered statewide,” he said, adding the low number of prosecutions doesn’t prove anything. “A lot of them don’t get prosecuted,” Horne said. “The county attorneys have scarce resources and bigger fish to fry.”
Attorney General Horne said he will continue to defend the voter-approved requirement for proof of identification to register to vote as it moves through the courts. He said he believes voters agree that voter fraud by those in our country illegally is a problem in Arizona, and that’s why they passed the requirements.
“If people believe that their votes are diluted by people voting illegally, they lose faith in the system and you can get a decline in participation,” he said.
The folks at the República view requiring ID to vote as “demonizing undocumented immigrants.” But last month, newspaper columnist Robert Robb supported Horne’s contentions. We include a link to his column in this post “Reason rears its head at AZ Republic: Robb lauds Horne.”
It’s not often we link directly to another site for our daily post. Today is an exception.
In “The American People Rose Up to Repeal a Health Care Law Once Before. They Can Do It Again,” Jim Weidman writing for Heritage’s The Foundry, discusses moving past Obamacare, pointing to conservative common sense solutions.
There is excellent, thought-provoking information here — on a subject none of us can avoid. Check it out.
Votes indicate strong fear of vulnerability in 2014 elections
Thirty-nine U.S. House Democrats undercut Barack Obama and his centerpiece healthcare legislation Friday, helping the Republican majority pass a bill that allows a one-year reprieve for Americans to keep health plans that do not comply with the flawed and error plagued Obamacare.
The defections from members of Obama’s party highlighted the pressure on Congress to assist those who lost coverage because of the president’s obviously troubled signature law.
Here in Arizona, Democrat defectors voting for Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013 (H R 3350) were Ron Barber (CD-2) and Kyrsten Sinema (CD-9). Both are up for reelection and were reading the tea leaves of their districts. Their Dem seatmates Ann Kirkpatrick (CD-1), Raul Grijalva (CD-3) and Ed Pastor (CD-7) in safer districts held fast to the liberal line.
Republicans Matt Salmon (CD-5), David Schweikert (CD-6), and Trent Franks (CD-8) voted with the majority. Paul Gosar (CD-4) who previously called Obamacare “fundamentally flawed,“ was mysteriously missing.
Despite a veto threat from Obama and objections from his sycophantic minions, the House passed the bill, 261 to 157. Click on the link to view the final roll call votes.
The concise one-page bill can be read here. Obamacare contains nearly 20,000 pages. Here it is wrapped in a red ribbon. No wonder Nancy Pelosi advocated on behalf of passing the bill so we could then find out what was in it.
James O’ Keefe’s Project Veritas has released a second investigative video showing Obamacare navigators in Texas counseling undercover reporters — posing as applicants — on how to engage in fraud to cheat the taxpayer-funded health care system by misreporting income and other pertinent information.
Despite such continued and irrefutable evidence, some in the mainstream media persist in referring to the first exposé as an “isolated incident.” Juan Williams disputed the findings to Bill O‘Reilly insisting, “There’s no corruption…that’s so small, Bill….c‘mon.”
“To get a lower premium, I wouldn’t include it…that’s my money,” Obamacare navigator Kris McCray advises at the offices of Change Happens (formerly FUUSA) in Houston, Texas. Listen as he informs the undercover reporter regarding the cash she ‘earned’ on the side but failed to report in her taxes. “I would just try to get that number as low as you can. It would help you qualify for more stuff as far as aid and stuff like that.”
Other applicants are advised at the National Urban League offices in Dallas and Irving, Texas.
