Weekend reading, viewing, guaranteed to drive you nuts

March 22, 2015

The Times of Israel reports that Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for “Death to America” on Saturday, a day after President Barack Obama appealed to Iran to seize a “historic opportunity” for a nuclear deal and a better future —- and as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry claimed substantial progress toward an accord.

Read the report, and then ask yourself why the Obama administration would see wisdom in attempting to cut a nuclear enrichment deal with the untrustworthy, unstable and diabolical Islamist regime of Iran?

Kerry’s negotiations would allow Iran to retain a substantial uranium enrichment program if the Iranian nuclear project is “peaceful,” although there is a clear consensus by senior members of America’s intelligence community that Iran’s nuclear activities are solely geared towards eventual weapons production.

Here is Obama taking his message directly to the Iranian people, greeting them in Arabic and informing them of the Obama family’s celebration of the Iranian holiday of Nowruz, marking the first day of Spring at the White House, including creating their own Haft Seen, representing their hopes for the New Year.

Obama even cites an Iranian (Persian) poet born in the 1300’s named Hafez, noted for memorizing the entire Quran as a child. Obama quoted, “It is early spring. Try to be joyful in your heart. For many a flower will bloom while you will be in clay.”

Attempting to negotiate rationally with despotic madmen who shout “Death to America” gives prophetic authenticity to Hafez’ words.


Janet Na­politano still coarse, boorish as UC Prez

March 20, 2015

CBS San Francisco does a hot open mic reveal of the woman Arizonans got to know all too well as loutish and arrogant. Never accused of exercising decorum or restraint as governor, Janet Na­politano brazenly puts her classlessness on display as University of California President.

Smacking gum like a long-hauler and clearly irritated as students protested the fifth 5% annual tuition increase —- during a Board of Regents meeting in San Francisco —- Napolitano turned to a fellow regent and said, “Let’s just break. Let’s go, let’s go. We don’t have to listen to this crap.” Her open mic caught the comment. After that, the regents and Napolitano filed out.

Her attitude was markedly different from her earlier, conciliatory tone at the very same meeting where she said of the students, “They want to be sure that their voices are being heard and I want to commit to them that their voices are being heard.”

To make their point loud and clear, a frustrated group of the tuition-hike weary student protesters pulled off their outer clothing down to their underwear or exercise clothes revealing the words “Student Debt,” to symbolize what they likened to having to give the shirt off their backs for continually escalating tuition rates.

Protesters said they suspected the regent’s meetings were scheduled during a busy week of midterms, but they say they vowed not to stop protesting until their message is heard.


Obama: Compulsory voting would be “transformative”

March 19, 2015

Latest scheme to expand Dem voting bloc

On the campaign trail, Barack Obama vowed to “fundamentally transform America,” the most triumphant home of freedom and liberty on the planet.

His disturbing words were met with cheers by the ill-informed and poorly educated  crowds. That irrational theme wasn’t just campaign rhetoric as we have seen through his imposition of radical leftist programs and policies that fly in the face of  the Constitution since he first assumed office in Jan. 2009

Now he is hoisting the idea of mandatory voting in the U.S.  Speaking in Cleveland Wednesday, Obama said voting should be a requirement. As an example, he pointed to Australia, where citizens must vote, regardless of their knowledge of the issues or desire to participate in the process.

“If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country,” Obama said, calling it “potentially transformative.” There’s no doubt about that. As millions of prospective Democrats flood the United States, it’s not difficult to see the underlying method to his madness.

Obama used the occasion to tell the gathering that universal voting would “counteract money more than anything.” Those are fascinating views from the man who, according to the Center for Responsive Politics and the Washington Post had a mammoth fundraising mechanism replete with  Hollywood celebrities, top-level bundlers, major financial and healthcare institutions and leftwing bigwigs.

No longer a candidate, Obama appears to have developed a newfound revulsion for such influence. Acting as the hypocrite he is, Obama opposed Citizens United and other court rulings that cleared the way for super PACs and removed campaign spending limits, although he wholeheartedly embraced them in his 2012 re-election campaign. 

In Cleveland, he said he thought it would be “fun” for the U.S. to consider amending the Constitution to change the role that money plays in the electoral system.

Obama’s recent executive actions open the door to enable millions of foreign nationals access to the valid forms of identification required to register to vote, increasing the probability that they would illegally register and participate in our elections. It does happen. According to the election official in this video, “We’re not the police.”


Hillary fails to put lid on email scandal, meets legal resistance

March 11, 2015

“The server will remain private”

As Hillary Clinton’s nefarious email saga continues to develop, one line given as her reason for withholding personal communications is shot through with cannon-sized holes by none other than hubby Bill.  Hillary’s claim that her private server “contained personal communication between my husband and me,” was exposed as bogus by the Wall Street Journal, revealing the fact that Bill Clinton still doesn’t use email. In fact, according to the article, he has sent a total of two emails in his entire life, the initial one in 1998. As president, Bill Clinton’s first email was a message to John Glenn, as the former senator and astronaut was making a return trip to space.

And speaking of outer space, Hillary, the presumed Democrat presidential candidate did herself no favors as she took the podium, aloofly playing the role of annoyed, elitist matron, while holding a terse press conference Tuesday. She acknowledged using only a private email account while secretary of state and grandly opined that only she is the determiner of what she releases and what she deletes. “The server will remain private,” she flatly declared —- saying she turned over 55,000 emails —- neglecting to admit that she waited two months to do so and never sufficiently answering questions relating to what was contained in those she deleted.

She also said using a private server while in a high level government post was a matter of “convenience.” The physical server was on her private property. Given that the Benghazi disaster, shrouded in lies, occurred on her watch, the issue becomes: Does her “convenience” trump national security?

While snappishly answering questions, Clinton repeated that she “followed every rule,” and  “did not email classified material to anyone.” She further claimed, “For any government employee, it is that government employee’s responsibility to determine what’s personal and what’s work-related” —- knowing full well that’s not the case.

“At the end, I chose not to keep my private personal emails. No one wants their personal emails made public, and I think most people understand that and respect that privacy,” asserted the woman who has long desired to be the ultimate and unquestioned authority.

When even the left-of-center Associated Press has filed a lawsuit in D.C. today to force the State Department to release Hillary’s email correspondence and government documents, all indications point to her grandiose goals looking bleaker. The legal action comes after repeated requests filed under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act have gone unfulfilled.

Amnesty deceit: AZ’s U.S.senators compulsive liars

March 6, 2015

McCain and Kyl brazenly told pre-election lies — Flake later joined the trickery 

Amid the dire news bombarding us from virtually every corner we offer this bit of sardonic levity as we take a trip back in time. Just five years ago in 2010, Jon Kyl, then an Arizona senator, appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation to discuss birthright citizenship. 

The headline, “Kyl: Illegal Aliens’ Kids Shouldn’t Be Citizens,” even uses the now verboten term “illegal aliens.” Kyl said that Congress should hold hearings to look into denying citizenship to illegal aliens’ children born in the United States, as the fight over illegal immigration widened to include the “birthright” issue.

John McCain’s compliant shadow Sen. Lindsey Graham, (R-SC), said he was considering introducing a Constitutional amendment to repeal a provision of the 14th Amendment, which guarantees citizenship to anyone born within U.S. borders. Kyl cunningly admitted he suggested to Graham that Congress hold hearings, “and hear first from the constitutional experts to at least tell us what the state of the law on that proposition is.” 

A newly landed Martian tuning into the news program could be forgiven for mistaking the slickster Kyl for a conservative.

Excerpts:

“The 14th Amendment [has been] interpreted to provide that if you are born in the United States, you are a citizen no matter what,” Kyl said. “So the question is, if both parents are here illegally, should there be a reward for their illegal behavior?”

Kyl configured the issue using these words, “illegal aliens taking jobs that Americans want; immigrants posing a burden on the state in the form of education, medical care and welfare benefits; and crime.”  He even bickered with host Harry Smith who claimed that crime has had a negative correlation with the arrival of illegals. “Crime in Phoenix, for instance, is down significantly over the last couple of years,” Smith said.

“That’s a gross generalization,” Kyl shot back. “Property crimes are up. Certain violent crimes on certain parts of the citizenry are up. Phoenix is a very large source of kidnapping. It’s called the kidnapping capital of the United States because the illegal immigrants who are brought to Phoenix for distribution throughout the country are held in drop houses.”

Kyl said the law is not discriminatory. “But if you live here in Arizona you’ll appreciate the fact that we have a great tradition, particularly with our neighbor to the south, Mexico. It’s not a matter of being anti-Hispanic. It’s a matter of wanting to enforce the law.”

POLITICO noted John McCain backed altering the Constitution’s 14th Amendment.

The Hill covered Kyl’s appearance, accurately reporting the lawmakers’ statements signal that the GOP was striking a tougher rhetorical posture on illegal immigration before the November elections.

The Arizona Republic covered both Kyl’s and McCain’s newfound stances. Though the duo led the 2007 amnesty scheme known as “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” including a pathway to citizenship for illegals, they brazenly reconfigured themselves to con Arizona voters. As McCain faced reelection, he imitated a border chameleon —- until the ballots were counted.  Then he reverted to his former amnesty position.

As Jeff Flake campaigned to replace the retiring Jon Kyl in 2011, he assumed the identical position, lying through his pearly whites and incurring the wrath of the pro-amnesty local newspaper. 

The only constants are the lies.


Illegal invaders become “Americans-in-Waiting”

February 26, 2015

Americans_in_Waiting2

Direct from the White House website comes this load of double-talk from the Council of Economic Advisors.

“The President is continuing to take action, within his legal authority, to fix our broken immigration system.  Today, the Administration announced a final rule that will allow spouses of certain high-skilled workers to contribute to the economy while they wait to obtain lawful permanent residence status (or a “green card”) through their employer. America needs a 21st century immigration system that lives up to our heritage as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants—and that grows our economy. This change, as well as the other actions announced by the President this past November, will do just that.”

Sprinkled liberally throughout this piece of flagrant deception, “Taking Action to Unlock the Economic Contributions of Americans-in-Waiting,” (from which we have excerpted this paragraph) are the words “our broken immigration system.”

America’s citizens know full well our immigration system isn’t broken. The only thing “broken” is the will of Obamacrats to enforce it. 

When the latest Labor statistics show Americans are still unemployed and underemployed in record numbers —-  with many forced to accept lower paying jobs for which they are over-qualified —- in this still fragile economy, why import workers to compete against our own citizens?

On a good day, and trying hard, we couldn’t make this stuff up.

As you watch this video compilation, pay attention to his words as Obama said, “Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its border and set laws for residency and citizenship.” He was right then. He is distorting the U.S. Constitution, usurping congressional authority and corrupting our generous legal immigration process now.


Randy Parraz closes shop, trades one scheme for another

February 24, 2015

Latest scheme is $5 million Democrat registration campaign

Were Arizona conservative Republicans given an assignment of compiling radical provocateurs, the name Randy Parraz would top many lists.  The hard-left, amnesty-for-illegals ideologue was behind the effort to unseat state Senate President Russell Pearce and shows up in the most unlikely of places.

In March 2013, open-borders and anti-enforcement extremists Parraz and his failed candidate wife Lilia Alvarez (video) were forced to admit their deceptively misnamed effort “Respect Arizona,” an attempt to recall Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was doomed.  In addition to coming up short on cash to pay petition circulators, he was unable to energize rational citizens to engage in his trickery. 

Parraz, a pro-illegal, self-described “community activist,” has made a career of extremism rather than the practice of law in which he holds a degree.

But it appears Parraz’ vocation of deception has come to an abrupt end. According to the leftist Modern Times magazine, which glowingly refers to Parraz as “charismatic,” the agitating rabble-rouser is calling it quits. He recently sent out an email statement telling of his bogus handled Citizens for a Better Arizona closing shop.

“After considerable thought, reflection and debate, CBA has decided to: Cease operations as a 501 C 4 organization (effective March 1, 2015); and Initiate the formation of a $5 million fund called the Arizona Blue Campaign to register over 200,000 Democrats by October 1, 2016.”

His message caused nary a blimp on the “aw shucks” meter.
