Pres. Trump’s (sub) mission plan

January 19, 2019

Following a historic naturalization ceremony in the White House on Saturday, President Donald Trump addressed the issue (video) of the partial government shutdown and the nation’s need of a border wall.

All along, the president has remained steadfast, noting there can be no border security without the wall. He previously stated, “I remain ready and willing to work with Democrats to pass a bill that secures our borders, supports the agents and officers on the ground, and keeps America safe. Let’s get it done! Sadly, there can be no REAL Border Security without the Wall!”

The Administration has requested $5.7 billion for construction of approximately 234 miles of new steel barrier on the southern border. Intransigent Democrat Leaders, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have refused to discuss wall funding, although Democrats strongly supported even greater expenditures prior to the Trump presidency. This is the senate vote on the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which overwhelmingly passed with bi-partisan support by 80 – 19.

President-elect Donald Trump unequivocally stated he would terminate DACA, (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), an executive action signed into law by Obama in 2012. It originally provided an exemption from deportation and a renewable two-year work permit, but it’s end theme is full-blown amnesty and American citizenship. Center for Immigration Studies provides facts and figures.

Now President Trump is in deal making mode, offering a DACA giveaway in exchange for wall money. Extortion is a crime. Capitulating to extortionists is reckless lunacy engaged in by those backed against a wall — in this case not metaphorically.  Vice President Mike Pence and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kirchner, who are watching the polls and not taking the pulse of Republican voters, are reportedly behind this preposterous capitulation scheme.

When originally proposed, those applying for the gift of U.S. citizenship needed only to affirm they were 16 years of age or younger when they initially entered the United States and were currently 35 years of age or younger. With the passage of time, it’s safe to assume the ages have changed to accommodate the applicants. They have to declare that they have been persons of good moral character since initially being brought to the U.S. as children by their parents — illegally. Verifying how many came as babes in arms or ably propelled themselves over the border last year at age 35 is impossible to substantiate. Many are now grandparents. They will also be voters, most assuredly in the Democrat camp. 

President Trump’s most fervent supporters voted for him because of his promise to build a wall to secure the USA from invasion and crime.  The invasion continues and crime is rampant.

If he moves forward with this capitulation, he will not win the Democrats, but he will lose his base.

Biblical plagues afflict Middle East

January 19, 2019

Exodus revisited?

This linked video documents that locusts have invaded the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

Another separate video shows raging, torrential floods and oversized hailstorms taking their toll on Middle East residents, washing away passenger-filled cars. Violent winds, destroying buildings, massive trees and toppling large trucks have also hammered the area. Watch all five minutes to see the full extent of the cataclysmic devastation. 

Now the U.K.’s Mirror reports a “biblical” sandstorm has turned Egypt’s capitol city of Cairo, orange. Government officials are warning residents to stay indoors to avoid respiratory problems. The bizarre event, including strong winds and rough seas, has forced the closure of major ports.

So far, as in the biblical account of the ten plagues that afflicted Egypt —- vividly described in the book of Exodus —- the rivers have not yet turned to blood. But an omnipotent voice appears to be speaking from above.


Roe v. Wade: Science now provides the truth

January 18, 2019

March for Life holds its annual gathering in Washington D.C. today. This year’s theme is, “Unique From Day One.”

This informative commentary,Why Science Strengthens the Pro-Life Argument,” by Andrea Picciotti-Bayer, is definitely worth your time.

Scientific and medical advances have impacted the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision in ways that could not be envisioned in 1973. Ultrasound wondrously shows fetal development, a beating heart and an undeniable, unique, human life —- even allowing parents to know the sex of their preborn child. Familial DNA, telling our generational story, is affixed from conception.

Agents of depriving life to preborn humans are celebrating the legal ability to destroy it. A breakfast event, held at the San Diego Hilton Resort and Spa advertises itself as the “46th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade Breakfast Celebration.” It’s hosted by a group known by the dubious moniker, “Coalition for Reproductive Justice.”  The question of whether it’s just to murder the defenseless within what should be the safest place on earth —- their mother’s womb —- is of no consequence to the celebrants who sell event tables for up to $2500. The San Diego “celebration” is one among many across the country.

Undeniably, life begins at conception. Medical advances now allow successful surgeries to be performed on preborn babies, providing incontrovertible evidence that life begins long before birth and what abortion proponents describe as a ‘clump of cells” is actually a growing baby whose life matters.

Web MD provides this spectacular slide show titled, “Fetal development month by month,” detailing a baby’s growth from conception to birth.


Educrat thugs promise “Armageddon”

January 17, 2019

AEA Pres. Joe Thomas threatens another strike, as teachers resemble thugs pulling a heist

Emboldened by Gov. Ducey’s capitulation to their 20% salary demands, the #RedsforEd unionist teachers are planning more walkouts.

Even after Ducey caved to their demands after vowing he would not, the unionists still endorsed radical Leftist open border proponent David Garcia for governor.  He was trounced 56% to 41%. And the new money for the teacher’s raises which Ducey said he would not increase taxes to provide? He’s instituted a newpublic safety fee” to cover the pay hikes.

During the strike Joe Thomas, president of the Arizona Education Association (AEA) was front and center issuing statements about the need for more money for the teachers —- who care so much for their students that last year they abandoned 800,000 of them for over a week in violation of their contractual agreements.

Paid by the union, Joe Thomas received in excess of $400,000 in compensation each year from 2011 through 2016. That swank sum has no doubt been upgraded in the past three years. Thomas and his teacher wife are Democrats. Following the Nov. General Election, we posted,If you like AZ’s leftist election results, thank a teacher.”

The striking teachers chose Noah Karvelis as the leader they mindlessly followed. The 23-year-old hip hop music teacher and Socialist Bernie Sander’s AZ campaign coordinator,  urged his colleagues on Twitter to teach political activism to their students and advance the concepts of gun control, white privilege, and anti-capitalism.

Never forget the “underpaid” teachers, who work 81/2 months a year, are able to support the far left teacher’s unions to the tune of $millions a year, earmarked for Democrat candidates and liberal causes.

We are geared to think that teachers care about the students entrusted to them, but walking out on them proves otherwise. So do the words of then-retiring NEA legal counsel Bob Chanin. Listen to his admission carefully.(brief video.) He admits that the unions are about money, power, and a leftist agenda —- clearly stating “It’s not because we care about children.”

Teachers have staged walkouts in West Virginia, Colorado, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Arizona, and now in the Los Angeles School District, where they are  promising “Armageddon.” To most of them, that’s a word with mystic allure.  What it really promises is catastrophic calamity of biblical proportions.

Passage of ballot propositions — 301 in 2000 increasing the state sales tax and 123 in 2016 a grab from the state land trust — guaranteed more money for education, which apparently is never enough. School districts routinely hold budget overrides and bond elections to “get more money into the classroom” —- eduspeak for bolstering teacher’s salaries. A major premise of passing the Arizona Lottery in 1980 was that money from ticket sales would fund schools.

Falling prey to the teacher’s demands was foolishness personified. It’s like attempting to bribe a mobster. No amount will ever be enough.


Reading between the (Jonathan) Lines

January 16, 2019

Jonathan Lines has flack roll out a deceptive comment to revive his own ailing campaign for AZ GOP chair

An article filled with contrivances and conniving appears in the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper. It accuses the husband of former state senator and U.S. Senate candidate, Kelli Ward of spitting in the eye of a former campaign worker.

Kelli Ward and her husband Michael Ward are both physicians. He is an Air Force Colonel, whose resumé is jam-packed with extraordinary military and medical achievements.

Dr. Kelli Ward is running for the AZ GOP chairmanship. Current chairman Jonathan Lines, in a brazen display of bravado is now seeking a second term, despite overseeing the loss of previously Republican held state offices in the November election.

The person claiming to have been victimized moved over to the Martha McSally camp after a hard-fought primary election with Dr. Kelli Ward, ultimately won by radical leftist Kyrsten Sinema. McSally was later appointed to fill the senate vacancy following John McCain’s death.

The alleged incident reportedly occurred at the Arizona Republican Party’s general election night gala on November 6, 2018 at the Paradise Valley Doubletree Resort. The PV township’s police chose not file charges due to conflicting reports from the two men and a witness.

But it’s the novel quote from Kyle Pierce, executive director of the AZ GOP that is most telling. Acting as a self-appointed investigator, judge and jury, he stated the alleged incident reflected poorly on Ward’s efforts to lead the party:

“It is extremely disappointing to learn about the assault that occurred at the election night watch party hosted by the Arizona Republican Party,” Pierce said. “On a night meant to celebrate with our dedicated volunteers who had united behind our Republican candidates, the Wards decided to settle political scores. Her recent calls for unity ring hollow given the attacks on those who unified behind our Republican nominee.”

Pierce’s boss is Jonathan Lines, running for reelection. Lines is best known for this deceptive mailer which omitted the conservative incumbent in the Nov. 2018 election. The mailer included the words, “Paid for by the Arizona Republican Party.” The result of Jonathan Lines’ unsavory manipulation is that Legislative District 28 lost both of its House seats to Democrats. Four of the nine Republican candidates on the mailer lost.

The red state of Arizona is now veering purple having lost a U.S. Senate seat, Secretary of State, Superintendent of Public Instruction, and one of the two seats on the utility rate-setting Corporation Commission. Greg Stanton, the left-wing former mayor of Phoenix won in Congressional District 9. Dems now hold five of Arizona’s nine CD seats

The state party leadership post is a job Jonathan Lines is obviously ill-equipped to handle. He owns a roofing business 200 miles away in Yuma, has 11 young children to parent and is rarely in the Phoenix-based Republican headquarters office. Lines is clearly over his head as evidenced by the unprecedented GOP loses he presided over.

Dr. Kelli Ward has traveled the state making invaluable contacts. She will unify the Republican party and will not engage in the deceptive and disconnected practices that have brought unprecedented election losses. Elected state committeemen will be voting for party officers Jan. 26.  Dr. Kelli Ward deserves your vote.


Uh oh…Pres. Trump’s polling has tanked

January 15, 2019

Republicans are warned that Donald Trump will lead them into the political wilderness.  It’s a repeat of the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, when all of the cultural elite asserted with absolute certainty (video) that Donald Trump would never be president.

They were, of course, off by a country mile.

The current polls are reflective of the relentless multi-pronged, media-driven, crusade against President Trump. Those who know little and read even less, are easily swayed and bullied into thinking that the man who was buoyed by a populist wave into the White House has somehow fallen short. 

He hasn’t.

To the delight of his base, President Trump is delivering on his campaign promises. Joblessness is at historic lows, the economy is surging, he has appointed two U.S. Supreme Court justices, with another in sight. His unprecedented inroads with North Korea have been monumental. The Dems are smarting, bruised and broken.  They are also enraged that that “sure thing Hillary,” endorsed by the majority of nation’s editorial boards — including the leftwing Arizona Republic, not only lost, but suffered massive nationwide losses.

Further evidence of the dismal shape the Democrats find themselves in, is shown by the socialists who are gaining dominance in the party that once appealed to many of our patriotic parents and grandparents.  Renown economics professor Dr. Walter Williams, succinctly compares Capitalism to Socialism.

It is the far left educrat unions that are responsible for failing to educate American students in the realities of the disastrous system. Preceding the midterm elections, Investor’s Business Daily ran this editorial, “Millennials May Love Socialism, But Socialism Won’t Love Them Back.“

Millennials supported Socialist Bernie Sanders for president in shockingly high numbers.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Socialist trounced a ten-term incumbent Democrat congressman in New York by courting minorities and the youth vote with slippery deception and technology rather than traditional campaign strategies.

Republicans must regard these phenomenons as instructive, rather than dismissing them as anomalies. America’s future depends on it.


Mealy-mouthed Lindsey undermines Pres. Trump

January 14, 2019

Lindsey Graham, a dedicated McCain loyalist, can’t figure out which way he swings without his good buddy to accompany him down the dark senate corridors, while whispering not-so-sweet nothings in his ear.

Just days ago Graham was stepping out in a fit of pseudo boldness, advising President Trump to hang tough and not cave to the petulant Pelosi and unscrupulous shakedowner Schumer. In this statement, Graham advised Pres. Trump, “Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier — even if the government were to be reopened — virtually ends the congressional path to funding for a border wall/barrier. It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier.”

Now he advises Trump to cut a deal with the intransigent leftists.

Appearing onFox News Sunday,” (video) Graham urged the president to reopen the partial government shutdown for three weeks to allow lawmakers to negotiate.

Talking out of both sides of his mouth, Graham said, “It really does perplex me how you expect this to end when you tell the president of the United States, you can’t get $1 for a wall when in the past Democrats have appropriated billions for the wall. What’s he supposed to do, just give in? He’s not going to give in.”

Then in the next breath, Graham pressed Trump to do exactly that, saying, “I would urge him to open up the government for a short period of time — like three weeks — before he pulls the plug, see if we can get a deal. If we can’t at the end of three weeks, all bets are off — see if he can do it by himself with the emergency powers. That is my recommendation.”

As Graham pursues an agenda markedly different from the conservative, Trump-supporting base — pushing the farcical DACA and expanded Temporary Protected Status currently estimated to exceed 400,000, it’s important to remember exactly who Lindsey Graham is.

In July 2015, Graham called GOP frontrunner Donald Trump a “jackass” during an interview on CNN. By December, Graham suspended his lifeless presidential campaign, due to lack of support and dismal polling and quickly endorsed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. When it became clear Donald Trump would be the Republican presidential nominee, Graham, emulating McCain and joined by Flake, announced that he would not vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton, stating on CNN, “I think Donald Trump is going to places where very few people have gone and I’m not going with him.”

Graham is obviously not someone Pres. Trump can rely on. His advice is worthless. With friends like Lindsey Graham, who needs enemies?
