Associated Press out of the BDS anti-Israel closet

August 16, 2019

This deceptive Associated Press headline, “Israel bans entry to outspoken US congresswomen,” should have read, “Israel bans entry to virulently anti-Semitic US congresswomen.”  The intentionally misleading word parsing clearly displays the media’s skewed bent, which it no longer attempts to conceal.

Far-left freshmen Democrats Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN), both Muslim members of congress, support the Palestinian-led BDS movement which advocates boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israeli businesses, products, universities and cultural institutions.

National Review recently headlined its revealing report:Omar to Introduce Resolution Declaring Support for Anti-Israel BDS Movement.” On Thursday Omar ludicrously accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of imposing a “Muslim ban,” declaring, “It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government.”

Arizona Sen. Martha McSally, who prior to retiring from the Air Force as a full Colonel, was deployed in the Middle East and supports President Trump’s resolve on the issue.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said his country is “open to critics and criticism,” noted that Tlaib and Omar’s itinerary for the trip “revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.”

Omar, who PJ Media reported engaged in a marriage with her own brother to perpetrate immigration and student loan fraud, irrationally stated, “Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected members of Congress.”

The women, members of what has been described as the congressional “Squad,” routinely refer to the sole democracy in the Middle East in the most derogatory of terms, and, for good measure, condemn President Trump. Omitted from their anti-Semitic tirade is the inconvenient fact that since the formation of the state of Israel in 1948, there have been Arabic members of the Knesset, the legislative body similar to the U.S. Congress. They have been Muslim, Druze, and Christian.

The U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, endorsed the decision to ban Tlaib and Omar, saying Israel “has every right to protect its borders” against promoters of boycotts.

AZ Rep. Paul Gosar blasts Green Card scheme

July 13, 2019

Principled AZ Congressmen Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs stand firm for American tech workers

On Friday SRAZ covered the collusion of Congressional Republicans who aligned with leftist Democrats inUS job giveaway bizarrely garners GOP support.” We once again provide the House vote on HR 1044, the deceptively titled bill bearing the name, “Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act.” In short, it replaces American tech workers with Green Card holders, predominantly from India.

Breitbart News has relentlessly reported on this sham. Most recently, John Binder wrote: 

“This week, 140 House Republicans, 224 House Democrats, and Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI*) — led by Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — voted to allow Indian nationals to effectively monopolize the U.S. green card system for at least the next ten years, providing a constant stream of foreign workers that American professionals will be forced to compete against for white-collar jobs.”

Worthy of note to Arizonans is the headline topping the article:Exclusive–Paul Gosar: GOP/Dems Gifting Tech Elites More Foreign Labor to Replace Americans.” We highly recommend you read it. It’s chock full of facts, but it will also imbue you with an added dose of pride in CD 4 Congressman Paul Gosar, interviewed for the report. Of Arizona’s four remaining Republican U.S. House members, only Reps. Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs had the fortitude to stand up to the House leadership and tech lobbyists, pushing this unholy scheme.

Americans who have been laid off and forced to train their foreign H-1B visa replacements say there is “no shortage” of qualified U.S. workers for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) jobs.

We’ve been had — aided and abetted by GOP colluders.

* Amash, going for explosive coverage, left the Republican Party on the Fourth of July this year, becoming a registered Independent. The former McCain campaign donor has advocated for the impeachment of President Trump.


US job giveaway bizarrely garners GOP support

July 12, 2019

Although rare, there are times when conservatives are mystified by the bizarre actions of those they help elect. Such was the case Wednesday when 140 Republican House members joined 224 Democrats and 1 Independent to vote for the deceptively titled,Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act.”

Of Arizona’s decreasing number of Congressional Republicans, only U.S. Reps. Paul Gosar (CD 4) and Andy Biggs (CD 5) stayed the course. David Schweikert (CD 6) and Debbie Lesko (CD 8) disappointingly joined the Democrats. View the vote on HB 1044.

Drafted by Democrats and business entities seeking cheaper labor, HB 1044 provides a green card giveaway to 300,000 East Indian contract workers — and their estimated 300,000 family members — by removing the “country caps” currently in immigration law. The bill significantly increases incentives for more Indian graduates to take jobs sought by our own U.S. college graduates — saddled with school loan debt they need to pay off and lives they are anxious to live. Marriage and home ownership become distant dreams when jobs they have trained for are going to imported workers.

As reported by Breitbart News’ Neil Munro, GOP Senators are pushing a matching giveaway bill supported by Democrat presidential hopeful, Sen. Kamala Harris. Only 57 of 197 GOP legislators — and only eight Democrats — voted against the giveaway.

The GOP’s House leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, voted for the giveaway to Indian outsourcing workers. The bill also helps U.S. real-estate investors by extending the green-card giveaway to the Chinese lenders who use the EB-5 program to buy green cards for their families.

Munro reports:

Business groups touted the win before the vote. Via Twitter, Andrew Moriarty, deputy director of federal policy at Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us leftist advocacy group compared the HR.1044 “country caps” bill to the Democrats’ DACA-amnesty bill:

This is a very important bipartisan effort that we strongly support… If this passes, it will join the Dream and Promise Act as two pieces of commonsense but CRUCIAL immigration legislation passed by the House this year, waiting only for a vote in the Senate.

 The Department of Homeland Security finally announced its opposition to the Senate’s version — S.386 — shortly before the House voted for the giveaway to Indian contract-workers and their U.S. employers.

News India Times  ecstatically and with more than a tinge of hyperbole, reports, “Hope has reignited for more than half a million Indian legal immigrant workers and their immediate family members stuck almost infinitely in the immigration pipeline for a Green Card: the US House of Representatives in a rare show of bipartisanship on Capitol Hill passed a resolution that, if enacted into law, would bring down the estimated wait time for a Green Card to less than 10 years from the current preposterous timeline for some that exceeds 100 years.”

Who knew India, like Mexico, is so eager to lose its young people to the USA?  Reparations, American money sent back to their families in their native countries, speaks with a persuasive voice.

In 2016 My India citing World Bank figures crowed, “India has again topped the list of Inward Remittances. It received around $70 billion over the year 2013. It is followed by China. Inward remittances are the money, which are transferred or sent by the overseas Indian diaspora to their family, friends, and relatives back in India. It can be in the form of foreign currency, traveler’s cheque or demand draft. India has now become the leading receiver of remittance in the world. India has held on the top position for the past 5 years in a row now.’ Those $billions would only have grown in the intervening years.

This raises the question, “Why is the United States so eager to import workers who will compete with our own citizen work force and willingly allow $billions to be siphoned to other nations who use us as their all too generous piggy bank?”


Displacing US workers with imports is lunacy

July 9, 2019

Our interest was piqued Monday by a comment on SRAZ linking to this Breitbart report. To call it disturbing would be the height of understatement. Cloak and dagger mysteries have more light directed on them than HR.1044. (Text).

This list, with Democrats first, followed by go-along to get-along Republicans, details who signed on to U.S. House Leftist Zoe Lofgren’s Green Card Giveaway Act. The bill authorizes expansion of the importation of college-educated Green Card workers, mainly from India, who will displace American citizens with college degrees and new grads who have trained and gone into debt obtaining their educations.

We expect to see AZ Democrats Ruben Gallego, Ann Kirkpatick, Tom O’Halleran and Greg Stanton signing on to this unprincipled legislation, though surprisingly Raul Grijalva‘s name was missing. But seeing Arizona Republicans Debbie Lesko and David Schweikert, canoodling on this bill with the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortz, Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler was jarring.

Jessica M. Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies for Washington based Center for Immigration Studies, notes “House Democrats reportedly are trying to pass the bill on the Consensus Calendar, which allows the bill to pass on a fast track without a hearing or rule for amendments.” The bullet points on her brief but informative fact sheet, are must reads.

Jon Miano, writing for CIS, provides an overview, referring to the “Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act,” as misnamed — calling it out as “dishonest.”

The vote was scheduled to take place Monday. Attempting to research who voted aye or nay dead-ended. Pertinent information is under wraps.

Earlier this year, Rep. Zoe Lofgren and Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced the Agricultural Worker Program Act (H.R. 641) intended to “shield farm workers from deportation and put them on a path toward earned legal status and eventual citizenship.”

Democrats view illegal aliens as a powerful voting bloc, which is why they are in the forefront of normalizing their illegitimate status, with sanctuary cities and offering them free health care and taxpayer-funded social benefits — as if they needed inducements.  This amounts to unsustainable lunacy.

In 2017, the fiscal burden of illegal immigration was factored at $216 Billion yearly in this report compiled by the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

On average the U.S. generously admits a million legal immigrants yearly. We have a right, as well as an obligation to our own citizens, to control our borders and determine who enters. The recent caravans of hundred of thousands of Central Americans invaders given access by Mexico, only stopped when President Trump threatened imposing tariffs against Mexican imports. He was widely assailed by the left for his stance, but it worked. Now congress is engaging in a devious end run.


Montini feigns ire when McSally is called out for disloyalty

June 7, 2019

Earlier this week SRAZ posted, “Memo to McSally: Thrashing Trump is key to failure,” calling out Sen. Martha McSally for her lack of fealty to our Republican President, Donald Trump.  We also reminded her of her loss to far-left Democrat Kyrsten Sinema necessitating her appointment to the seat she currently, albeit precariously, holds. Our post included these words:

Keep up your foolishness, Martha, and not only will you not get the Democrat or registered Independent votes you seek, you will lose the Trump-supporting Republican base you need.

The leftist local newspaper has already begun hammering you. It’s a cinch it will endorse open borders proponent Mr. Gabrielle Giffords, (Mark Kelly). You need us. But we don’t come easy and you can’t take us for granted. It’s time to retool your campaign to garner our support. Otherwise, you’ll lose again and your next appointment will be to the political graveyard.

Apparently our honesty doesn’t sit well with radical columnist E.J. Montini who, at retirement age, is as mentally and physically emaciated as the newspaper for which he still works. He wrote this op-ed column linking to our recent post and excoriating Seeing Red AZ and our readers for distrusting Martha McSally.

Don’t be fooled by this bogus chivalry embracing McSally. It’s all a scam intended to make the newspaper appear thoughtful and less in the tank for far-left, Obama pal, Mr. Giffords/Kelly, who hypocritically opposes Second Amendment rights for everyone but himself. The duplicitous, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic, previously endorsed Sinema over McSally. But hedging its bets in 2016, it gave the green light to a slippery McSally then running for the CD2 House seat, tucking her endorsement in among a load of Democrats including one who had previously been elected as a Republican.

In 2018 the schizophrenic editorial board gave McSally a pass for her comment about building a wall, actually writing, “McSally is just pulling a John McCain,” as it referenced his “build the dang fence campaign ad,” and acknowledged he was lying. Sucker-punching themselves repeatedly they extolled and bashed both of the candidates. But as anticipated, the General Election endorsement went to Sinema.

This time around we fully expect it to go to Soros-connected Mr. Giffords/Kelly. With subscriptions plummeting, endorsements no longer have any currency. If McSally is looking to survive and hang on to the Arizona senate seat it’s crucial she stop playing games. Running as a Republican, she needs to act like one. Support President Trump, and not as a whim or on occasion. 

Conservatives will be watching. We’re sick of being lied to and will sit on our hands rather than take another shiv in the ribs and say, “Thank You,” because we were stabbed by a Republican poser. We are also aware that our principles present a double edged sword, since this is exactly what the fake McSally protectors are hoping for, as they waffle again, but will end up endorsing Mr. Gabby Giffords, aka Mark Kelly.

That’s a prediction you can take to the bank.


Memo to McSally: Thrashing Trump is key to failure

June 1, 2019

There’s a lesson to be learned from Jeff Flake’s political nose-dive

Martha McSally, who served two terms in congress representing CD 2, was appointed to the U.S. Senate seat she currently occupies. The gubernatorial appointment followed her loss to Kyrsten Sinema, a foul-mouthed, self-declared bisexual and atheist with Communist leanings. Sinema creatively recrafted her image and was elected to replace anti-Trump Republicrat Jeff Flake whose 18% approval ratings were so low he opted against running for a second term.  McSally was appointed to replace Sen. Jon Kyl, who briefly filled the second senate seat after the death of John McCain. Kyl resumed his far more lucrative D.C. lobbying gig.

Arizona’s political musical chairs require a scorecard.

Now McSally is facing the electorate again and can’t decide who her base is, as political novice and hardened leftwinger Mr. Gabreille Giffords, (Mark Kelly) launches a senate challenge.

This race should be a cakewalk. But rather than embarking on an aggressive campaign supporting Republican President Trump, McSally has decided to move into the political wilderness. She supports an investigation into the foolish story of whether the USS McCain, docked in Japan, was hidden from the president during his trip to Japan. McSally has also joined her Democrat 2020 rival Mark “Giffords” Kelly opposing the president’s calls for tariffs on Mexican imports if Mexico doesn’t stop aiding hundreds of thousands of Central American illegals invading the USA.  The incrementally increasing tariffs, preceded by a warning, will only be imposed if Mexico chooses to continue facilitating the invasion.

As the first U.S. female fighter pilot to fly in combat and first to command a fighter combat squadron it should be assumed that McSally would not be reticent to wage a battle with Giffords/Kelly rather than playing the antagonist to the Republican President of the United States.

Keep up your foolishness, Martha, and not only will you not get the Democrat or registered Independent votes you seek, you will lose the Trump-supporting Republican base you need.

The leftist local newspaper has already begun hammering you. It’s a cinch it will endorse Mark “Giffords” Kelly. You need us. But we don’t come easy and you can’t take us for granted. It’s time to retool your campaign to garner our support.  Otherwise, you’ll lose again and your next appointment will be to the political graveyard.


Dying AZ Republic draws life trying to slay US Rep. Paul Gosar

May 22, 2019

Draculesque newspaper sustained by drawing conservative blood 

U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-CD-4) is an unapologetic conservative. As a dentist, his specialty was teeth, but as a congressman, he’s had to learn about fangs.

The feeble, Hillary-supporting Arizona Republic, hemorrhaging subscriptions and narrowly escaping yet another hostile takeover, will fall on its sword promoting an anti-Trump, open borders, restrictions on Second Amendment rights and abortion-on-demand agenda as it insults its few remaining readers.

As it gasps its last breaths, the newspaper now has Paul Gosar in its cross-hairs. Like Bram Stoker‘s Dracula, it sustains itself by feeding on blood. Laurie Roberts, the former sob saga columnist has been shuffled into the conservative slayer position. The emaciated, radically left newspaper got a life enhancing transfusion when it oversaw the election of Kyrsten Sinema to the U.S. Senate and five of our nine congressional seats shift to the Dem camp. Republicans David Schweikert (CD-6) and Debbie Lesko (CD-8) also need our support, as the left is determined to turn the red state of Arizona a deep blue.

Conservative Review lists Paul Gosar, along with Arizona CD-5 U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs, among the Top 25 Conservatives in the nation, awarding them both a Liberty Score “A” rating.

Longtime newspaper employees have been unceremoniously dumped, including Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Steve Benson, whose parent-company Gannett could no longer afford. The daily now functions with ASU Cronkite J School students working out of their cars, sans editors.

Gannett Co. Inc.’s stock has been in a downward freefall. Yahoo! Finance exposes the excessive salaries of the newspaper’s execs in the last paragraph of the article that refers to the “melting ice cube of a business.”

In January we postedAZ Republic: homeless vagrant on borrowed time,” detailing how the 10-story building and parking garage the Republic once called home has been sold, with a lease back arrangement from the real estate company that purchased the newspaper’s properties — obviously not the model of success.

Unable to ignore the inescapable truth that it is on life support, the AZ Republic is committed to taking down conservatives. Don’t let that happen. Get involved. Become a Precinct Committeeman. The 2020 election is right around the corner.
