Finger-to-wind Kyrsten Sinema casts her lot with GOP

So what do you do when you’re a liberal Democrat up for reelection for the first time in a newly formed swing distinct where registered Independents prevail and Republicans remain a factor? Ask onetime Green Party candidate turned Democrat, Kyrsten Sinema.

Sinema voted with a majority of Republicans, including the entire Arizona GOP delegation Thursday.

Forty-seven other House Democrats also jumped ship — voting to halt admissions and increase security checks on Syrian and Iraqi nationals claiming refugee status to enter the United States. With her vote, Sinema defied Barack Obama‘s veto threat.

The global threat cannot be ignored. Just this morning a luxury hotel in Mali, frequented by tourists, was the scene of yet another bloody rampage as Islamic terrorists seized 170 guests and staff in an ongoing hostage-taking that left at least twenty seven people dead and others wounded. The gunmen and grenade throwers shouted the all too familiar jihadist murderous slogan, “Allahu Akbar!” meaning “Allah is greater” in Arabic.

H.R. 4038, the American Security Against Foreign Enemies (SAFE Act) passed 289-137 — just two days after it was introduced. The bill, which was taken up on the heels of this revelation, now moves to the senate.

Sixty percent (60%) of ‘Likely U.S. Voters’ oppose the settling of Syrian refugees in the state where they live, according to this latest Rasmussen Reports national survey. Just 28% favor their state taking in these unable to be sufficiently vetted Muslim “refugees.”

Seventy-seven percent (77%) of voters are now concerned that giving thousands of Syrians asylum poses a national security risk to the United States, with 52% who are ‘Very Concerned.’ 

It’s a good bet political extremist and once vocal open-borders proponent Kyrsten Sinema has more than a passing interest in these numbers. Her retooled political future could be determined by them.

    These polling numbers illustrate the driving force behind Donald Trump’s continued surge. His message regarding illegals resonates with Americans who are tired of seeing their country veer dangerously toward Third Worldism while we have to foot the bill for it. Now the situation has dramatically worsened with the rise of Muslim extremists having the red welcoming carpet rolled out for them by Obama. We have absolutely no idea who these self declared “refugees” are, and knowledgeable U.S. military brass say it’s virtually impossible to verify their identities and actual backgrounds. Kyrsten Sinema is no fool. She knows where her votes are buttered.

  2. Vince says:

    ISIS, which Barack Obama foolishly described as “contained” has actually been growing.

    There are longstanding reasons to be concerned. Even the left of center ABC News reported in 2013 that Iraqis seeking refugee status in Kentucky, were al Qaeda-linked terrorists who had killed American National Guardsmen. Both “refugees” pleaded guilty to terror-connected charges after trying to acquire heavy weapons.

  3. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Her reputation precedes her and the damage has been done. I don’t see how she could get Republican votes in her district. She’s a far left radical, but plays a sweet, soft spoken moderate on TV. If Republicans vote for her, they deserve what they get – but the rest of AZ doesn’t.

    The house bill is a joke, just like everything else the so called “republicans” in D.C. do, too bad they are able to fool so many:

    SEN. SESSIONS: HOUSE GOP REFUGEE BILL ‘DOESN’T REALLY ALTER ANYTHING’

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)says the House GOP refugee bill that will be voted on Thursday, “doesn’t really alter anything.”

    On Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily, Sessions said:

    It basically says the President has asserted that he is going to vet these people before they are admitted into the country as refugees. And they say, ‘well, we require that the appointees of President Obama, who are in charge of vetting, say they fully vetted him.’ That’s all it basically says. So it doesn’t deal with the fact that an overwhelming majority of Americans don’t favor this expansion of refugees through Syria and in fact oppose it.

    D.C., republican and democrat proves more and more everyday they are the enemy of America and American Citizens.

    This is nothing except them playing pretend and getting people to believe they are actually doing something in order to perpetuate the foolish belief that republicans in general are any better than democrats.

      Well said – one must imagine that anything done so instantaneously was easy pudding. Silly Americans. It’s not like the US can “vet” a damn thing with these Countries. Seriously, the LEO and Gov’t don’t have ANY database or “background check” Form 4473 equivalent or repository in these areas. Oh wait! Maybe all these sweet folks “self-identify” as Refugees, the new American way, where anyone can “be anything” they imagine themselves to be regardless of the facts. Once we are forced to “tithe” to D.C., there ain’t a damn thing we can do about it, real time. So use your 2A rights and hedge the tyranny ourselves. You know, “being necessary to the security of a free State, THE PEOPLE” not Govt, is what will save us.

    The U.S. is not alone being led by deceitful Marxists (Obama and Sinema among them). Pope Francis who leads the world’s Catholics, hypocritically came to the USA and lectured us saying we must welcome all comers. Meanwhile he has taken even greater steps to secure himself and his monarchy. He’s doubled his own security detail and has relegated nuns in Vatican City to having to wait in line for security checks. Under the circumstances, that’s fine. But how dare he tell us how to behave? He lives in the rarified air of a walled and cloistered city of about 100 acres with his own army of skilled Swiss Guard marksmen. The Climate Change advocate ought to put out an edict to do away with the preposterous pretentiousness of smoke signals when new popes are being chosen. Bad for air quality. He should institute a much more environmentally safe series of flashing lights. He’s tech savvy. A better idea would be an emailed press release.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      I would never take kindly to criticism of the Pope in the past, but we’ve never had a Communist pope before. Go for it! You have my ‘blessing.’ :)

      • Dennis O'Brien says:

        Conservative Since Birth,
        As a lifelong and parochial school educated Catholic, there was a time I would have held that same opinion.

        Then I realized that the infallibility of the very decent Benedict left with him as he was being pushed out of the papacy and it was suddenly conferred on obvious Commie Francis. The South American Marxist Francis was needed to bring in and retain Hispanics (who are joining others and leaving the church in droves).

        http://ncronline.org/blogs/faith-and-justice/hispanics-not-so-catholic-anymore

        Francis promotes liberal causes while demeaning capitalism as he advocates for the redistribution of wealth exactly as Marx, Lenin and Trotsky did and Obama does. Benedict lived in Europe during WWII and knew all too well the damage inflicted by Communist and Socialist regimes.

        It’s impossible for me as a thinking conservative to remain connected to this hogwash for sheep. I no longer Baa.

    ‘Half-Hour, News Hour,’ a skit on trying to figure out what the terrorists had in common.

    • MacBeth says:

      Humor based in awful truth. Faithful members of the religion of peace can’t possibly be perpetrators of bloodbaths……right?

  7. Saguaro Sam says:

    While the hostage situation at the Radisson Hotel in Mali was happening today, the US State Dept spokesperson, John Kirby, tweeted that the US was aware that there are Americans in that hotel.

    We know that these terrorist organizations have thousands of Twitter accounts and monitor our communications.

    So, thanks, John Kirby of the US State Dept., for putting a bullseye on the back of those Americans in that hotel in Mali.

      and there was this:

      “Kerry: We neutralized al-Qaeda and will do so faster to ISIS”

      then ooops:

      “BREAKING:Terrorists Shouting “Allahu Akbar” Take 170 Hostages In Radisson Hotel In Mali – UPDATE: Terrorists Freed Hostages Who Could Recite The Koran – UPDATE: AL-Qaeda Takes Credit For Attack…UPDATE: Special Forces Storm Hotel, Free Remaining Hostages, Including At Least 6 Americans…

    To all the Patriots who visit the SRAZ website:

    Please take 20 minutes of your time to watch this video of what is happening in Europe. Highly disturbing. It is an army and they are very vocal about what they want and what their plans are.

    Please, please watch this video and pass it on to all of your friends.

    One thing that you will notice is that much of the German population is welcoming the invaders with open arms, as they welcomed Hitler not so very long ago.

    And a bucolic little town of 36 people in Switzerland saw over 300 invaders brought into their town and housed at a castle. The lovely grounds of the castle and the countryside were quickly turned into what looks like a massive garbage dump.

    • Night Owl says:

      I just finished watching this video and feel sick to my stomach. I’ll definitely send this to my list in the morning. Too damn upset now. Will have nightmares tonight.

    • MacBeth says:

      I also watched this video and was horrified. Then I read that Obama is proceeding with his scheme to increase the influx of these so-called “refugees” into the USA. tho even our own military agree we have no ability adequately determine who and what they are.
