McCain joins Soros pushing “refugee” invasion

November 23, 2015


As astute citizens collecting facts in advance of the crucial 2016 elections, a filter might seem necessary since there is so much to absorb — some fact, some fancy.  This morning we provide a mega dose of the factual, dating back several years.

In 2008, WND’s Jerome Corsi wrote the informative “John McCain funded by George Soros since 2001,” noting that McCain founded the Alexandria, Va.-based Reform Institute as a vehicle to receive funding from George Soros’ Open Society Institute, Teresa Heinz Kerry’s Tides Foundation and several other prominent ‘non-profit’ organizations. McCain used the institute to promote his political agenda and provide compensation to key campaign operatives between elections.”

Meet the open borders family: McCain, Hernandez, Soros, and the “Reform Institute comes via exhaustive research by Ed Morrissey (going back to 2005) and syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin, both undisputed conservatives. Morrissey can now be read at Hot Air.

Recently, Pamela Geller exposed diabolical billionaire George Soros as integral to the EU plan to aid the Muslim invasion and subsequent destruction of Europe by promoting acceptance at least a million “asylum-seekers” annually. Like McCain, Soros glibly tosses around the words “migrant” and “comprehensive,” as he castigates Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban for subordinating the “human rights of asylum-seekers and migrants to the security of borders.”

For thinking Americans and our European allies, secure borders are the decisive choice!

Using gumballs to make his presentation, Roy Beck of NumbersUSA brilliantly illustrates the fact that unbridled immigration will not help the world’s needy. Nearly 3 million have viewed this video. If you’re one of them, watch it again to allow the facts to marinate while you remember that he is not describing Muslims coming from nations that despise our freedoms, have no intent to acclimate and believe in Islamic supremacy and world domination.

Listen closely to John McCain, running for another six-year U.S. Senate term and Lindsey Graham, a single digit candidate for the presidency, explain to Tucker Carlson why the United States needs to increase the numbers of Syrian refugees. Their stiff demeanors and irrational blather appear to be part of a comedy skit, except they’re deadly serious. After the Islamic jihadist bloodbaths recently in Paris and Mali, that’s clearly the problem.


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

November 20, 2015

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.

Formerly fawning reporters turn on Obama

November 18, 2015

This is Barack Obama’s full press conference at the G-20 Summit in Antalya, Turkey which includes several reporters asking tough questions regarding U.S. policy in pursuing Islamic Jihadists.  The usually compliant media openly expressed frustration with Obama’s weak response to ISIS — which he alone refers to as ISIL.

In this shorter clip, CNN’s Jim Acosta bluntly asked, “I wanted to go back to something you said to Margaret (Brennan) earlier when you said you have not underestimated ISIS’s abilities. This is an organization that you once described as a ‘JayVee Team,’ that evolved into a force that has now occupied territory in Iraq and Syria and is now able to use that safe haven to launch attacks in other parts of the world. How is that not underestimating their capabilities? And how is that “contained,” quite frankly? And I think a lot of Americans have this frustration that they see that the United States has the greatest military in the world, it has the backing of nearly every other country in the world when it comes to taking on ISIS. I guess the question is, and if you’ll forgive the language, is why can’t we take out these bastards?”

Obama says the United States must welcome the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees, who are “subjected to vigorous screening and security checks” — something experts say is virtually impossible. He makes this claim despite the fact that at least two of the Paris terrorists entered Europe as part of the flood of “refugees” leaving Syria.

In the current GQ magazine which features Obama on the cover, he looked ahead to life after his 15 remaining months in the White House saying he has fantasized about owning a professional basketball team or holding the commissioner’s job for the National Basketball Association. Obama, an avid sports fan, couldn’t do as much damage in the sporting arena as he has as the ineffectual leader of the free world and an embarrassing Commander-in-Chief.

Since Jeff Flake routinely plays basketball with Obama perhaps he could join the soon-to-be-former president at his dream job with the NBA.  It would give the unpopular Flake another chance to take his shirt off and free up the Arizona senate seat for an actual conservative.

Flake, Hughes, dog deaths case back to Grand Jury?

November 13, 2015

With the weather cooling to the point of making Arizonans remember why we’re grateful to live here, most of us prefer not to dredge up recollections of the merciless summer heat in the Valley.

But the sweltering 106 degree scorcher of June 20, 2014 is exactly where we need to focus our attention. It is being reported that a Maricopa County Superior Court judge is considering whether another grand jury should take another look at the case of the gruesome heat related deaths of nearly two dozen dogs crammed in a steamy utility room at the Green Acre boarding kennel in Gilbert. County Attorney Bill Montgomery sat on this case for an unconscionably long time.

If a new indictment is issued against vacationing kennel owners Todd and MaLeisa Hughes, what about the actual caretakers Logan and Austin Flake who were entrusted with running the facility and tending the family pets left in their care while Logan’s parents were in Florida?

The foursome was indicted October 16, 2014. From there, a scorecard is needed to keep up with who was charged and who was dropped.

Then as a grandiose 2014 Christmas Eve gesture, Montgomery dropped charges of animal cruelty against all four defendants, leaving a single fraud charge against the Hughes.

A Maricopa County Grand Jury reinstated charges against the Hughes May 6. The Flakes were mysteriously excluded. Politics abounds. Did we mention Austin Flake is the son of Sen. Jeff Flake?

When they returned from their vacation, Todd Hughes initially told the pet owners their dogs had all run away.  Later he and his wife MaLeisa claimed the deaths were the result of an accident when a dog chewed through an air-conditioning electrical cord, disabling the unit. The dogs died agonizing deaths, suffocating in the small room where they were left overnight without cooling, food or water. When the dead and dying dogs were discovered the following morning, the Flakes did not call for veterinary assistance, opting instead to hose down the dogs and then callously pile their carcasses in a shed.

The indictments caused Brigham Young University to expel Austin Flake, which allowed him to recast himself and his wife Logan as victims and sue the taxpayers of Maricopa County for $8 million dollars. If this obscene settlement is awarded, it will ease the reentry into the single world for the now divorcing Jr. Flakes. 

Anarchy reigns at University of Missouri

November 11, 2015

Threat: “This is just the beginning”

By now we’ve all heard about the student protests at the University of Missouri resulting in the resignations of the school’s president, Tim Wolfe and chancellor. R. Bowen Loftin. Amid demands for “racial justice” and insistence Wolfe acknowledge his “white male privilege,” the black activist student group known as Concerned Student 1950, made numerous other demands posted here in the Independent Journal.

Racism is not the issue. CNS News reports on the university’s black elected student body president, Peyton Head, discussing “empowerment.” This lunacy is rooted in leftist politics.

The school’s football team joined the fray after a black graduate student from a multimillionaire family,* began a hunger strike, bizarrely saying the dispute would either end with Wolfe resigning or the student dying. But it came down to the team, joined by its coach, using the threat of not playing its game against BYU, which if canceled would have cost the university well over $1 million.

Following Wolfe’s resignation, the university’s athletic department issued a statement that the football team would return to the practice field to prepare for its Saturday game.

After Wolfe weakly complied to the mob, the hunger striking student announced on Twitter that he had cancelled his self-imposed starvation.

“Our demands must be met in totality to create systems of healing within the UM System,” said Marshall Allen, one of the protesters. “In addition to this, students, staff and faculty of color must be involved in the process of deciding who will be our next UM System president.”

As is often the case, the adage “follow the money” works here. Not only is there the immense revenue generated by the football game, but there is also a back story that has received little attention. Unrest actually began in August when the university announced it would no longer be offering health insurance subsidies for graduate students. MU said it can no longer pay for graduate students’ health insurance because of changes in federal health care policy under Obamacare.

To no one’s surprise, the White House praised the protesters, though others regard the model of the football team holding the presidency hostage as setting a dangerous precedent and further proof that political correctness on university campuses has a stranglehold on rational thinking, making administrators who had recently been praised for their stewardship of a complex institution suddenly vulnerable to student mayhem.

Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder denounced a university faculty member who deprived student reporters of their First Amendment rights after she was videotaped harassing and trying to kick the reporters out of their “no media safe space.” Read his statement as reported on Mediaite here. Kinder will be running for governor on the Republican ticket in 2016.

AZ Republic’s exodus revs up as enticements lure

November 2, 2015

Flinging his last bit of liberal illogico, Robert Leger, the Arizona Republic’s opinions editor, takes his early retirement with this “short takes” missive:

Journalism, the oil that keeps democracy running

“Stop buying the nonsense that when one journalist messes up (um, CNBC), it means all journalists are idiots. We’re not the Borg.  We’re human, which means journalists will make mistakes. But most that I know believe in serving their communities. They strive to be fair. They strive to soar. Their work, at best, is the oil that makes self-government possible. As I leave The Republic, I salute the many fine reporters and editors here who do tremendous work.”

Nice try, but no cigar, Mr. Leger. “Mistakes” does not begin to describe the intentionally nasty, gotcha sabotage the entire CNBC panel of “journalists” dished out during the Oct. 28 assault on GOP presidential candidates, passing itself off as a “debate.” Fortunately, they were thwarted by the candidates, who rightly called them out on their pathetic behavior.

Seeing Red AZ has frequently pointed out the left-wing bias, trickery, blatant abhorrence of Republicans, and unconcealed deceit which are the hallmarks of the newspaper Leger so reveres.

We recently noted the Gannett incentive package intended to persuade “veteran” employees to take an early hike from the failing newspaper. Leger at 58, obviously finds the deal attractive. Others have also been taking the money and running.

Soon the ASU Cronkite journalism students who care little for the First Amendment they are supposed to defend, will be running what remains of a once conservative newspaper that lost its way after the death of Eugene Pulliam — founder and longtime president of Central Newspapers Inc. He and his wife Nina, ran a newspaper empire that employed professionals and actually provided an op-ed section on the editorial pages. In what now seems to be a novel concept, it gave readers news instead of editorials passing themselves off as reports.

Today’s Arizona Republic is a repository for regurgitated USAToday’s leftward AP spew and recycled efforts from earlier in the week, or even the preceding one. Its focus has shifted from authentic news reporting to magazine-like entertainment and local dining coverage. Insulting the remaining readers with agenda is basic policy. The student reporters construct what should be straight news into Snoopyesque prose, and it often takes multiples of them to pull that off.

Believe it or not, the now failing newspaper was founded as The Arizona Republican. In it’s heyday and before the advent of instant news, the Republic was so robust it had an afternoon edition in addition to the morning delivery.

This bit of out-the-door self promotion and grandiose bent-arm back slapping doesn’t address the craftiness to which Robert Leger’s craft has fallen prey. The opinions he oversaw were intended to distort and manipulate. Only if he’d take credit for that degradation would he deserve the applause he seeks.

Wasn’t Bill Mundell treated well enough by GOP?

October 27, 2015

The word on the street is that Bill Mundell is telling folks he’s being encouraged by (unnamed) supporters to throw his hat in the 2016 ring for a spot on the Arizona Corporation Commission. It’s a post he previously held, after being appointed to the position by Republican Gov. Jane Hull in 1999 to fill a vacancy.

Mundell was also appointed as Registrar of Contractors by former Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican.

Nothing strange there. Mundell, a Republican lawyer who was elected to the state legislature and served from 1987 to 1992 would be a likely go-to guy for these cushy state slots.

For six years back in the 1980’s he was a Chandler city court judge, another job to which he was appointed.

The oddity is that Bill Mundell is now a newly minted Democrat. All we can figure is that he’s got a hankering to vote for Hillary.
