Anti-business, pro-global warming agenda wholesaled to kids

Watch in the video link as a 6-year-old sings Earth Day song lyrics that include these words:

Boycott, petition, let the big business know / that if we mess it up here, there’s no where else we can go.”

Indoctrination is the name of the game of the National Education Association.  Our thanks to Glenn Beck for this exposé. (Link provided here.)


Barack Obama Sr. forced to leave Harvard due to lies, womanizing

April 30, 2011

A good number of U.S.Presidents grew up in less than idyllic households. Bill Clinton’s name at birth was William Jefferson Blythe, III. His father is said to have died before his birth and his mother married five times. One of her husbands adopted the young president-to-be, and his name was changed.  Reagan’s father was an abusive alcoholic. Gerald Ford’s father abandoned him at birth and he was adopted by his mother’s second husband who changed his name from Leslie Lynch, Jr.

But in 1964, when Harvard administrators wrote a memo to the Immigration and Naturalization Service to delay a request by Barack Hussein Obama Sr. to extend his stay in the U.S., the administrators, wrote they “were having difficulty with his financial arrangements and couldn’t seem to figure out how many wives he had.”  His request was denied.

Now that makes all of the other sordid life tales pale by comparison!

“Growing” population is not the same as “eligible”

April 29, 2011

Today the daily editorially bemoans the fact that though Latinos are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population, they vote in lesser numbers than other groups. According to a recent analysis by the Pew Hispanic Center, their participation lags behind other demographics.

The newspaper asks plaintively, “Where is the outcry?” as it asserts “They are “wasting their clout.” The Pew Center acknowledges it is a clout that “benefits Democrats.”

But population alone is not the determining factor, as the editorial board well knows. There is also that pesky problem of citizenship.  And even though Sandra O’Connor and another judge on the Ninth Circuit Court’s three-person panel saw no need to require proof of citizenship when registering and voting, it still remains a prerequisite. As we reported yesterday, that issue is going to be revisited by the full 11-judge panel.

Citizen participation in our election process is encouraged as evidenced by numerous and varied groups organizing voter registration drives. The Republican Party has been actively and successfully recruiting. This year Republicans have added 10,243 new voters to their ranks while the Democrats show a paltry increase of 4,187.

The real question to ask is how many of this growing Hispanic population are citizens eligible to vote as required by the U.S. Constitution?

AZ CD 6: Political bigwigs already choosing sides

April 29, 2011

With 18 months until the November 2012 election it seems peculiar that the political luminaries are already tossing their divine endorsements around like so much sugar candy to the goblins on All Hallows Eve.

Stay with us on this.  The candidates, offices sought and endorsers are spinning fast enough to give the most level-headed political observer a case of the woozies.

Letting no grass grow under his soon-to-be retired feet, outgoing U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl endorsed state legislator Kirk Adams literally within moments after Adams resigned to run for the 6th Congressional District seat — still warm from Jeff Flake‘s lengthy tenure in opposition to his pledge to stay just 3 terms.

Former Congressman Matt Salmon, who held that same CD 6 seat for three terms before honoring his pledge to term limit himself, has announced not only his intent to run, but the solid endorsement he has secured from conservative Congressman Trent Franks.

In this zesty game of political pick-up, former state Senate Majority Leader Chuck Gray, who was the first to enter the race, has the most novel approach of all. Gray is actually meeting with and wants to hear from the voters in the district. In the final analysis they are the ones who cast the ballots.

Double exposure — and then some

Ninth Circus to revisit proof of citizenship for AZ voters

April 28, 2011

Integrity of elections merits another look

Last October, a three-judge panel on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals exhibited stunning contempt for the basic expectation of unblemished elections when ruling 2 – 1 that the National Voter Registration Act pre-empts Arizona’s 2004 Proposition 200 (Arizona Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act).The federal act requires states to make registration opportunities “widely available” by removing “obstacles” to voter registration.

Former U.S.Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, an Arizonan, temporarily sat on the panel and was part of the majority decision. O’Connor and Circuit Judge Sandra Ikuta said Prop. 200 creates an additional hurdle, while the national act is intended to reduce “state-imposed obstacles” to registration. Chief Judge Alex Kozinski, dissented.

Now, the nation’s most overturned court has agreed to rehear the case “en banc” before an 11-judge panel and reconsider the previous decision to strike down Arizona’s requirement that residents provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote and show proof of identity at the polls on Election Day

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who oversees state elections said “The previous decision by the Ninth Circuit was an outrage, and I thought was a slap in the face to Arizonans who are concerned about the integrity of our elections. Opposition to the simple act of providing proof that you are legally eligible to participate in our elections is incomprehensible.”

Bennett has vowed to defend Prop. 200 in the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary.  Arizona was the first state to require voters to show proof of citizenship, but Kansas and Georgia have recently enacted similar laws. An Appeals Court ruling would not impact the other states, although a Supreme Court ruling would.

National Voter Registration Act creates a standard federal registration form for all states. It requires applicants to sign a statement that they are citizens, but requires no proof. Prop. 200 requires applicants, regardless of whether they are submitting a federal registration form or a state one, to provide a driver’s license, passport, birth certificate, tribal identification or naturalization certification number.

A hearing date has yet to be scheduled.

Since last year’s general election, new registrations have soared statewide to 3,209,725.  As of April 22, 2011 the number of voters who have registered as “Independent” or have not designated a party preference has risen by 48,023 to 1,030,500, while Republicans have added 10,243. Democrats have increased by 4,187. Libertarians make up a little less than one percent of the state’s total registration with 24,941, while those registered with the Green Party stands at 5,105.

The guarantee of secure elections is a fundamental expectation of each and every voting citizen. We should accept nothing less — regardless of what Sandra O’Connor thinks.

Unionist Rebekah Friend is not yours

April 28, 2011

Attorney General Tom Horne will vigorously defend secret ballot

In Unionland, Rebekah Friend wears many hats. She is not only the executive director of Arizona AFL-CIO, but also the leftist organization’s secretary and treasurer. It’s reminiscent of the glory days in the Central Committee of the Soviet politburo.

Friend is inextricably aligned with the Obama administration’s National Labor Relation Board’s plans to sue the citizens of the state of Arizona(yet again) for having the temerity to pass Prop. 113 last November. The NLRB is also suing South Dakotafor the same reason — protecting workers’ rights to a secret ballot in union elections.

The straightforward Constitutional amendment, passed overwhelmingly by more than 60% of Arizona voters, was on the ballot as Prop. 113. It amended the Arizona Constitution to guarantee the fundamental right of employees deciding whether to be represented by unions to vote a secret ballot. Unions are now prohibited from publicly intimidating workers and forcing them to sign on.

Exhibiting the height of leftist duplicity, Friend says: “Arizonans deserve a path to unionization that is fair and free of coercion.”

To that we say, “Amen!”

But beware. Friend’s version of “fair and free of coercion,” is different than the literal meaning of those words. In Rebekah Friend’s world George Orwell’s Ministry of Truth — where the meanings of words are erased and replaced by masters of revisionism — still exists. 

But a bright light shines. Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne says that his office has been notified that the fed’s suit will soon be filed, and he plans to defend the measure vigorously. “I think by opposing the idea of the secret ballot, they (NLRB officials) are opposing a fundamental right of democracy — ensuring that we can’t be intimidated as to how we vote.”

If you’d like to assist this good man in retiring his campaign debt, nationally renowned conservative, Secretary Bill Bennett will appear at an event in support of Tom Horne tomorrow evening. Horne’s campaign was forced to respond to a series of vicious and well-funded attacks against him by his liberal Democrat opponent and her labor union allies.

PAChyderm Coalition releases latest ratings

April 28, 2011

The PAChyderm Coalition, a Reagan Republican organization, has just released its latest cumulative evaluations of legislators.

This updated list reflects legislative actions as of 4/20/2011. It was last updated 4/27/2011. Scroll down to see the bills used in the evaluations and the summary of criteria used to weight bills.

Howard Levine’s narrative:

This was frenzied activity during the last week as the legislature adjourned. Keep in mind that the legislature worked “late” last week on Wednesday to end the session and ended up working until after 5 am Thursday. This was not even a full week, but the House had 134 recorded votes and the Senate had 120 recorded votes. For a forty hour work week, that is an average of about one recorded vote every 17 minutes in the House and one recorded vote every 20 minutes in the Senate. In addition, there were innumerable discussions, caucuses, voice votes, and negotiations. In the week before that, the recorded vote count is 125 in the House and 87 in the Senate, so the final week came on top of a very busy prior week. We can only hope that legislators were able to carefully consider each of these votes before casting them. With bills recently amended, “hope” rather than “expect” is, unfortunately, probably more realistic regarding the previous sentence.

The Legislature has once again shown that, if it weren’t for the last minute, nothing would get done!

With all of the last minute activities which often resulted in bills getting amended, we are still reviewing the bills for amendments and may make modifications to weights of the bills or add new bills. Therefore, while there are no more votes being cast, our evaluation is not yet finalized for this general session.

The budget bills were also added to the evaluation which resulted in significant improvements in Republican scores since all of the bills passed on party line votes. We do not give sponsor weights to budget bills since they are generally worked out by leadership, and the person listed as the sponsor is not really the author of the bill in the same way most other bills are introduced.

Because of the large number of bills being tracked, we are seeing a “compression” effect where scores are closer than they would be if fewer bills were tracked. This makes the rankings as well as the scores important for determining overall performance of legislators. We are considering raising the bar on the Groupings for next year by increasing scores for all Groups except Reagan Republican to provide greater clarity and differentiation since the scores are so compressed together.

As always, we are interested in feedback from fellow Republicans. We especially welcome information concerning bill amendments that you think should affect the weight assigned to a bill.

Chaos erupts over TUSD’s review of ethnic studies program

April 27, 2011

Thugs passing themselves off as scholars created havoc as they took over the Tucson Unified School District Governing Board meeting room before last evening‘s scheduled meeting. Chained together, thrusting defiant fists in the air and pounding on table tops while shouting through bullhorns, they caused board members to delay their vote on the contentious issue of so-called “ethnic studies.”

A proposal before the governing board would keep Mexican Studies courses as high school level electives, but they could no longer be used to meet core state graduation requirements for social studies. Many citizen taypayers, whose money unwrites these courses, hope to see the racist, La Raza program eliminated entirely.

Even the left-leaning Arizona Republic admitted the data used by proponents of the program was bogus.

Tom Horne, former AZ Superintendent of Public Instruction — now Arizona’s Attorney General — has long protested the program and was instrumental in passage of HB 2281 which “prohibits a school district or charter school from including courses or classes that either promote the overthrow of the United States government or promote resentment toward a race or class of people.”

Tucson’s KOLD News 13 reports on last night’s meeting via this appalling video seen here.

This is what the Reconquista supporters who advocate reconquering the American southwest, pass off as education to the students:

Obama releases long form birth certificate; gets back to “stuff”

April 27, 2011

In view of the recent USA TODAY polling* indicating only 38 percent of Americans — in advance of the 2012 election — believe Barack Obama was definitely born in the United States, the White House has now released his long form birth certificate.

Previously he had released only this certification of live birth. Obama, who has called the issue a “distraction,” has added fuel to the fire by refusing to address the long-simmering issue.

Obama’s Kenyan paternal grandmother previously said she witnessed his birth in Kenya.

Businessman Donald Trump, who has been relentless in asking for the release of the document, said “Today, I’m very proud of myself, because I’ve accomplished something that nobody else has been able to accomplish. Why he didn’t do it when everybody else was asking for it, I don’t know. But I am really honored, frankly, to have played such a big role in hopefully, hopefully getting rid of this issue.”

Obama, not known for eloquent without his Teleprompters spoke extemporaneously and said, “We’ve got better stuff to do. I’ve got better stuff to do. We’ve got big problems to solve.”
