Pres. Trump is right to declare a National Emergency

February 16, 2019

The left, exemplified by the Hillary-endorsing, Arizona Republic newspaper, is going ballistic over the National Emergency declaration called for by President Trump after he signed onto the substandard budget bill which provides scant funding to the promised and increasingly crucial border wall. He did so to overt another government shutdown. The left’s nefarious scheme revolves around the single fact that increasing the Democrat voter base is best accomplished by allowing millions of illiterate illegal invaders who will be constantly reminded who went to bat for them.

Today’s edition of the failing newspaper headlines, “Trump declares border emergency” with the tagline. “Grab for wall funds is certain to trigger lengthy legal fight.”

Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have vowed not to fund the wall. They and their ilk suffer from a genetic affliction that allows them to say “barrier” and even utter the word “technology,” but “wall” can’t make its way past their lips. Technology was tried and failed under First Homeland Insecurity Chief Michael Chertoff. In 2008 we wrote, Virtual fence is a virtual flop.”

Construction of a security wall to staunch the ongoing illegal invasion, was the campaign message that resonated with the American people, propelling political novice Donald Trump into the presidency over 16 other Republican aspirants.

Although the left is going ballistic over President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to secure our southern border in response to congress’ failure to act, the ability to do so is not a new construct emanating from the Trump White House.

The National Emergencies Act was enacted by Congress in 1976, when it was signed into law by President Gerald Ford. It has no specific definition of what is considered an emergency, but has historically been invoked during unusual threats to the nation. There have been 58 national emergencies declared since the act‘s inception. Thirty-one of them remain in effect today.

In 1979, Pres. Jimmy Carter initially put the act to use to declare a national emergency freezing all Iranian government assets in the U.S. in response to the Iran hostage crisis. His national emergency is still in place and has been renewed annually by successive presidents, as required by law.

Pres. George W. Bush declared national emergency acts following the September 11, 2001 attacks. In all, he declared 13. As president, Barack Obama declared national emergencies on 12 foreign relations issues that have also been renewed.

Outraged headlines have been the order of the day only since Donald J. Trump was dramatically elected on November 8, 2016.

Adding to the radical anti-Trump deception, today’s Arizona Republic carries a “Your Turn” column by Lisa Urias, titled “A tale of two walls.” The PR exec describes a funded trip she and “Latino leaders” took to Israel, and makes this insultingly inane comparison: “Despite (what she refers to as “challenges”) never once during a recent trip did we hear Israeli leaders suggest their neighboring states were “criminals, rapists and horrible people.”

Of course not. They are murders, who have a history of bombing school buses and where teachers often carry rifles and armed guards are onsite to protect students. Israel’s wall has been an effective security tool for the tiny nation surrounded by sworn enemies.

These are the schizophrenic views of Democrats, before and after the election of President Trump.

Second Amendment freedoms under assault

February 15, 2019

Pay attention: This is just the beginning as Socialist agenda gains traction

The unambiguous Second Amendment is under assault by leftists, but nowhere is the attack on our constitutional right more vigorous than in what is becoming the repressive People’s Republic of California.

In 2018, the NRA partnered with its state association, the California Rifle and Pistol Association to once again sue the state, challenging the state’s restrictions on sales of ammunition.

A portion of the Safety for All Act of 2016, (scroll past the letter to read the bill) known as Proposition 63 –– which goes into full effect in July 2019 ––requires a background check to buy ammunition. Retailers will be legally obligated to log the amount of ammo gun owners purchase. That record will then be sent to a Justice Department database.

At the time, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsome, a co-author of Prop 63, responded to the lawsuit by stating, “California voters made their decision loud and clear that guns and ammo do not belong in the hands of dangerous individuals,” a disingenuous way of characterizing law-abiding gun owners. Using more honest language, he also declared, the state “would fight the NRA every step of the way.” Newsome is now the governor. He blames everyone but the lax sanctuary city policies he has endorsed and presided over.

A lawsuit was filed by Kim Rhode, six-time Olympic medal winning shooter who set a record winning her first gold medal at the 1996 Atlanta Games five days after her 17th birthday. She has been joined in her legal action by gun retailers across the nation.

A court-ordered temporary injunction has blocked portions of the law from taking effect, including a clause which makes large-capacity magazine possession a misdemeanor.

The Democrats are doing all they can to suppress our rights. The NRA stands as a bulwark in maintaining our freedoms.

Mark Kelly, AZ gun hypocrite, announces for US Senate

February 14, 2019

With brazen audacity oozing from every pore, leftist Democrat Mark Kelly has announced his entrance into the U.S. Senate race, mounting a challenge to Arizona incumbent Sen. Martha McSally. The Republican former congresswoman was appointed to the senate after placeholder and former senator, Jon Kyl stepped down. Kyl was appointed to temporarily fill the Senate vacancy following the death of John McCain.

Mark Kelly has ridden the unfortunate shooting of his wife, former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords like a steed, despite some major missteps. Though the two of them have been in the forefront of Second Amendment restrictions for the rest of us via their organization Americans for Responsible Solutions, which opposes concealed carry laws, and has now morphed into the $multi-million Giffords PAC.* Mark Kelly exempts himself from his desire to curtail our constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights. The PAC which claims to be bipartisan overwhelmingly endorses liberal Democrats, including the Virginia trio now negatively dominating the news for everything from infanticide protections, and racism to sexual assault: Gov. Ralph Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark Herring.

In 2013, Breitbart News exposed Kelly making a private purchase of an AR-15, a.45 caliber semi-automatic pistol and “high capacity” magazines at Diamondback Police Supply, a Tucson gun store. After he was caught in the hypocrisy, he backtracked, saying he was not going to keep the AR-15, which he had not picked up from the store.

Democrats are nothing if not two-faced on the issue of guns. They want to rein in the rights of America’s gun owners, but desire easy access to self-protection for themselves. Our illustrative 2012 postDem gun hypocrites,” is proof positive.

The couple is also close to Barack Obama, another Second Amendment restrictionist…for others, though he exempts himself, as seen here.

Mark Kelly has had his share of captured-on-film woes involving not only “assault” weapons but also assault dogs as seen in this disturbing video. During a Kelly family vacation in the seaside resort community of Laguna Beach, his daughter’s 65-pound American Bulldog (a close relative of the notorious Pit Bull) leaped down upon a baby seal, mercilessly attacking and killing the defenseless animal.

Join the NRA to protect our inherent, constitutionally supported freedoms that Mark Kelly would decimate if elected.

Illegal aliens’ get-rich-quick scheme: Sue Americans

February 13, 2019

Polls show Americans overwhelmingly support Pres. Trump’s policies

When criminals commit unlawful acts, they are arrested, charged and detained. If they are found guilty in a court of law, they are sentenced to serve a specific jail or prison sentence. Among the hardships they and their families endure is separation. This scenario occurs daily in American cities across the country.

When they are foreign nationals, illegal invaders breaching our sovereign border, increasingly they arrive with children — not always their own. Having children in tow provides them with a sympathetic aura.

Though difficult to believe these uneducated illegals who now arrive by the thousands from Central America, facilitated in the passage of their caravans by our Mexican “neighbors” — have advocates. 

Law firms and a contrivance known as the National Immigration Justice Center are currently representing six illegal alien families, who claim they and the children were traumatized by being separated after the adults were detained.  The children were cared for, fed, kept clean, provided clothes, schooled and in all likelihood, treated better than they’ve previously been. Many of them made the long trek with strangers who claimed to be their parents.

But now the illegal adults, guided by far left organizations, are being represented by D.C. and Philadelphia law firms. They are seeking $3 million for each adult and each child, for a total of $36 million.

These are just the first such lawsuits. They threaten more will follow. Though they claim to be suing the Trump administration, they are in fact, suing us…American taxpayers, already overburdened by $100’s of billions providing them benefits, medical care and educating their kids, according to this 2017 report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). Scroll down to page 4 for a synopsis. Criminals among them are also clogging our court and penal systems.

President Trump opposes the catch-and-release policies at the border, which allow illegal aliens claiming asylum to be released into the U.S. pending a court date that results in many never being seen again.

“We’re going to no longer release. We’re going to catch; we’re not going to release. They’re going to stay with us until the deportation hearing or the asylum hearing takes place. So we’re not releasing them into the community,” President Trump recently stated.

A new Rasmussen Reports national survey finds that 59% of likely U.S. voters think border security is a vital national security interest for the United States.

According to a Gallup poll, more Americans are concerned about illegal immigration than other issues. The numbers spiked from 13% to 21% at the end of 2018.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday, Feb. 12, shows that 50% of likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.

Those numbers show American’s are paying attention. That’s why he draws crowds of thousands to his rallies.


AZ Republic’s desperation: Meds might help

February 12, 2019

As Republicans, it’s no secret we are in the crosshairs of the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-despising Arizona Republic newspaper. As conservatives and supporters of President Trump, the editorial content and columnists’ vile disgorge make it clear they wish we’d all take a hike from which we’d never return. In the end, it was the newspaper’s left-wing Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Steve Benson who was recently given his walking papers, by parent Gannett Co. Inc. Benson was a victim of declining circulation, making him no longer affordable.

Gannett, which also publishes USA Today has been targeted for a buyout bid from a media group with a history of taking over struggling newspapers and slashing jobs, desperate actions the newspaper has already been engaging in as it tries to stay afloat.

Referring to the Arizona Republic as “struggling newspaper” is understatement. Monday’s edition is a case in point. With six pages, the Sports Section — which oddly includes obits — was the weightier portion of the entire anorexic edition. Two additional pages delivered syndicated comics, puzzles and movie listings. Three-and-a-half others touched on local and national news, radical opinions and nearly full-page local and national weather reports supplied through a paid service. USA Today, an insert originally intended to provide heft, was reduced to a single page. During campaign season, the editorial board of the newspaper, which actually debuted as The Arizona Republican, reliably endorses extreme leftists. There is no op-ed page featuring conservative writers.

The madness knows no bounds. Editorial page editor Phil Boas oversaw the relentless attacks that took 6-term elected Sheriff Joe Arpaio — his own father-in-law — out of office.

But, there is something new. Tucked in among arthritis clinics promising relief from joint, knee or back pain, multiple full page ads for hearing aids and a Snowbird Extravaganza aimed at the aging demographic that still read the leftward skew — are a new breed of ads. They promise renewed vitality. One, a half-pager minces no words, headlining, “Return of Youthful Sexual Feelings Delighting Couples of All Ages.” Another, in a pre-Valentine mode screams out in all caps, “SHOW YOUR SWEETHEART THAT YOU CARE.”

The failing newspaper might do well take its own advice and try some revitalizing meds. Another bit of advice: Stop insulting your few remaining readers by force feeding them the benefits of the illegal invasion on our southern border. It might make you feel good in the short term, but the lasting effects are the precursor to doom.


Don’t watch the Grammys? Surprising what you missed

Trump supporter boldly displays her views amid leftist domination of entertainment industry

The Hollywood Reporter presents singer Joy Villa. A former Obama voter who liked Socialist Bernie Sanders, Ms. Villa has had an awakening, brought about by Donald Trump.  Her outfits worn to past award ceremonies have clearly illustrated her political and pro-life bent. 

This year she arrived for the Sunday night festivities dressed in a “Build the Wall” gown accessorized by barbed wire shoulder adornments and spiked metal crown along with a red purse decorated with the words, “Make America Great Again.”

The words “Build the Wall” were painted in red on the back train of her dress, which featured an all over brick pattern.

Villa, who is pro-life, describes her father as a Christian minister who was an “overt Republican and Reaganite.”

The Hollywood Reporter article has photos of the current and previous outfits worn by the singer. They all send a strong conservative message.

“I’m all for stronger border security,” declared Joy Villa. “Obama and Clinton and Bush talked about that, but President Trump’s the first one to promise that he’ll get it done. It’s pro-America, pro-protection.”

Villa’s latest album, Home Sweet Home, released in 2018, includes a single titled, “Make America Great Again.”

Buy it! Lovely, conservative Joy Villa deserves our support.


Disgraceful groping of triple-amputee hero at Tucson airport

February 10, 2019

Gateway Pundit exposes the despicable groping of Purple Heart triple-amputee vet Brian Kolfage at Tucson International Airport Saturday, following the We Build the Wall” town hall.

Brian Kolfage set up a GoFundMe page to build the border wall and it has surpassed $20 million in donations with over 350,000 donors. He is proof that a patriotic American citizen has more commitment to American security than the Democrats in Washington, D.C.  For more information on how you can help, go to We Build The Wall.

After being contacted by The Gateway Pundit, Brian Kolfage said: 

“It’s unfortunate that every time I travel I get a full search and swabbed for explosives. It’s the times we live in. I understand the security concerns but it’s not TSA’s fault, it’s the policy makers in D.C. who have no clue what the real world is like; it’s a joke. It’s the same people who think there’s no issue at our border.”

“It’s amazing how our government is so worried about airport security with a triple amputee veteran in a wheelchair but everyday thousands of illegals are coming into our nation unchecked and killing Americans. I guess they turn a blind eye to them like they have to all the angel families.”

Military Times covered Brian Kolfage and his wife Ashley who married after he returned from Iraq, having suffered catastrophic injuries. They are the parents of two children and reside in Tucson. He graduated in 2014 with a degree in architecture from the University of Arizona, finishing among the top of his class despite having to learn to draw and write with his non-dominant hand.

This video was taken by a bystander at the airport, disgusted by what he was witnessing:
