Anchor babies: The latest numbers are shocking

August 29, 2015

An anchor baby is delivered every 93 seconds in U.S.

In some circles, the term “anchor baby” has become highly charged. Hispanic activists and their amigos in the mainstream media consider it a slur.  Seeing Red AZ views it as accurately descriptive, as evidenced by our post “Ending birthright citizenship = end to anchor babies,” this past week.

The term relates to a gross misinterpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution that has transmogrified into gifting American citizenship to American-born children of illegal alien mothers. It has also spawned an obscene industry known as birth tourism.

The specific provision of the Fourteen Amendment adopted in 1868 rightly provided American citizenship to the American-born children of African-born slaves following emancipation. It was never intended to be misused to convey citizenship to American-born newborns of illegal aliens.

The concept has further expanded to allow these babies to act as conduits for the entire family to facilitate chain migration / family reunification.

With this as background, our “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter,” provides the shocking fact that about one out of every twelve newborns in the United States is now an anchor baby — or the U.S.-citizen child of illegal aliens.

Writing for Breitbart, Julia Hahn presents a revealing and fact filled account in “Census: Anchor baby delivered every 93 seconds.”

If you read only a single article this weekend, make sure this is the one.

Information is power. Use it to confront those who call themselves our Representatives. They are in Arizona campaigning for our votes. Hold their feet to the fire and ask them what they intend to do to keep us from losing our own country to this invasion. These numbers are based on the 2008 Census, so they are actually understated.


Donald Trump’s spectacular surge is no mystery

August 18, 2015

From time to time SRAZ recommends columns in what we refer to as “Weekend Reading Guaranteed to Make You Smarter.”  Tuesday is nowhere near the weekend, but this column on the disastrous effects of unchecked, spiraling and costly immigration is definitely worth your midweek time.

Read “Immigration: Issue of the Century,” by former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan. It clearly defines the phenomenal rise of Donald Trump. 


Trump retreats from his stance on illegal invasion

July 31, 2015

Inconsistent ramblings on key issue trouble conservatives

Donald Trump has opened a commanding lead in Republican national presidential polls, sprinting ahead of the crowded GOP field with a 20 percent lead in Thursday’s Quinnipiac survey. His numbers are also soaring in Arizona where the Phoenix-based MBQF Consulting survey reports he holds “a staggering 2 to 1 advantage over his closest opponent.”

Most political observers base Trump’s strong showing on the fact that he gives a voice to the frustrations of Americans who are primed to hear a candidate meaningfully address the deplorable and costly illegal invasion that is flooding  our country unabated. Here in the border state of Arizona, 5.000 people stood in line in searing July temperatures to hear and cheer his message at the packed Phoenix Convention Center.

Now Powerline, a reliably conservative site, runs a provocative post, titled “Trump goes soft on immigration.” In his column John Hinderaker uses Trump’s disturbing quotes from this bizarre CNN interview, which also rates coverage on Breitbart.

To refer to Trump’s views as inconsistent would be generous. In truth his incoherent ramblings appear to be indistinguishable from those of any Democrat as he calls for “legal status,” immediately after saying he would deport all in the United States illegally and then allow the “good ones” to reenter through an “expedited process” and live here legally, though not as citizens.

But, “later down the line, who knows what’s going to happen?” he muses. He clarified that this meant citizenship would be “something I would think about, but I would say right now no. I’m not open to it. I would say legal status.”

When asked what he would do with the so-called DREAMers, Trump responded, “We’re going to do something. I’ve been giving it so much thought, you know you have a….on a humanitarian basis, you have a lot of deep thought going into this, believe me. I actually have a big heart….I mean, a lot of people don’t understand that, but the DREAMers, it’s a tough situation, we’re going to do something, and one of the things we’re going to do is expedite — when somebody’s terrific, we want them back here, but they have to be legally….”

The words “flash in the pan” are beginning to take on new meaning.


Be vigilant: Communists still waging war on America

July 18, 2015

Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter

If you thought Communists had faded from the American landscape, think again. They are alive and well and hoisting the flag of cultural Marxism high in America — in tandem with advancing a well-oiled propaganda machine.

Author Paul Kengor, PhD* has written an insightful commentary, “Communists Celebrate Lowering of Confederate Flag,” for American Thinker. He provides historical background on state’s rights, a notion loathed by the overarching, central government-worshipping Communists, and delves into the redefinition of marriage as celebrated by the same Godless Marxists.

Referring to the Communist red flag, Kengor writes, “…communist publications like People’s World hoist the rainbow flag and denounce the Confederate flag. They do so in the name of “tolerance” while, in truth, the flag they really salute is the worst symbol of intolerance.”

“The workers of this country and the workers of every country have only one flag and that is the red flag,” said William Z. Foster, chairman of Communist Party USA, to Congress in the 1930s. CPUSA members were loyal Soviet patriots. One of them was Frank Marshall Davis, mentor to Barack Obama, who, in his July 20, 1946 Party-Line Chicago Star, wrote: “I salute the Soviet Union…. I honor the Red nation.”

Kengor’s full column is a worthy read.

*Among other books, Paul Kengor authored, “The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, the Untold Story.”


Thomas Sowell’s birthday reflections

July 12, 2015

In today’s “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter,” Dr. Thomas Sowell —- who on June 30, celebrated his 85th birthday —- proves while pounding out words on a keyboard, that few of us can aspire to be as smart as this gifted man is.

Reading his wisdom will certainly be a step in the right direction. Here is, “Looking Back,” also running under the title, “A legacy of Clichés.”

Keep reading his columns.  You’ll be on track as Mensa material.


Faith-based tax exempt status in jeopardy

July 1, 2015

Churches under assault for support of traditional marriage

On the heels of the U.S. Supreme Court’s June 26th decision to redefine marriage, the tax-exempt status of religious institutions is now in jeopardy.

Mark Oppenheimer, who writes the “Beliefs” column for the New York Times, leaves no room for doubt where his own beliefs are, as he opines, “The Supreme Court’s ruling on gay marriage makes it clearer than ever that the government shouldn’t be subsidizing religion and non-profits.”

His Time.com article, ”Now’s the Time To End Tax Exemptions for Religious Institutions,” is appalling in its flagrant dismissal of faith-based institutions.

A self-described” gay-rights supporter,” Oppenheimer was “elated by Friday’s Supreme Court decision.” The rest of us should prepare for what appears to be on the horizon as the two issues are mow brazenly linked.

In case you had any doubts, the assault on churches —- along with the schools, hospitals and various services they administer —- is in full bloom and comes in rapid succession to the court’s same-sex marriage ruling.

Katie Pavlich, in her Townhall column says it best: “Religious liberty is under attack in America and the next five years will serve as a battleground to protect or destroy it. If religious liberty is in fact destroyed, America will no longer hold onto one of the most important principles that makes it an exceptional nation more tolerant than the rest in the world. We are at a tipping point.” 


Governmental jumble as SCOTUS Justices legislate

June 28, 2015

Speculation on opinions pointless since liberal justices vote as a bloc

Americans, as young students have been taught that the U.S. Constitution provides a separation of powers via three distinct branches of government. The Legislative branch makes laws, the Executive branch carries them out, and the Judicial branch evaluates them.

Our Founders created a Constitution with an ingenious and intricate system of checks and balances to guard the people’s liberty against combinations of government power. It structured the Legislative, Executive, and Judiciary separate and wholly independent, yet coordinated for proper operation, with safeguards to prevent usurpations of power.

The Tenth Amendment clearly delineates the separation of powers —- creating a federal government with enumerated and limited powers, designed to keep government as close to the people as possible. 

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”

James Madison stressed the necessity to reserve all possible authority in the states and people saying, “The powers delegated by the Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.”

With these thoughts as background, take time today to enlighten yourself by reading Andrew C. McCarthy’s heard-hitting assessment of the past week’s U.S. Supreme Court actions. Then brace yourself for those still to come on Monday.

McCarthy’s insightful article, printed in National Review, is titled: “Let’s Drop the Charade: The Supreme Court Is a Political Branch, Not a Judicial One.”

Background: Arizona Senator John McCain voted to confirm liberals Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen G. Breyer to the Supreme Court. McCain and Kyl joined the group of 36 GOP senators and one Democrat in opposing Elena Kagan’s nomination to the high court. The Huffington Post has the statements each of the senators gave as their reason.
