AZ Republic editorial proves newspaper still doesn’t get it

January 23, 2017

Fishwrap Alert

In the Sunday editorial that sounds as though it was emailed from Tucson by the telecommuting leftie editorialist Linda Valdez, the carping begins and ends with, “Trump’s inauguration speech proves he still doesn’t get it. “

There was a time we would have provided a link to the sham “Editorial Board’s” dissemination of misinformation laced with extremist partisan myopia. We see no need for such generosity when  the intent of the piece was to marginalize our newly elected Commander-in-Chief, Donald Trump. Facts take a back seat when points are attempting to be scored by the Hillary-endorsing newspaper, which referred to the departing Obama’s as “gracious” and scandal plagued, often scowling Hillary Clinton as “respectful.”

These words reveal the newspaper’s real agenda: “Trump’s inaugural speech was an opportunity to rise above a divisive campaign and low approval ratings by reaching out (cliché alert!) to America’s better angels. But he did not show an understanding that his audience has grown to include all Americans — those who voted for him and those who voted against him.”

In fact, Donald Trump reached past the angels, going directly to God, whose spirit he invoked throughout his speech. Democrats don’t like that.  Who can forget when they booed the inclusion of God (video) at their 2012 national convention?

In a shameful display of petulance and signaling an unwillingness to work together for the American people, 67 Democrat members of Congress boycotted the inauguration of our nation’s 45th President. Republicans, none too thrilled with the 2008 and 2012 elections of Barack Obama, showed him and the office to which he was elected the respect due them. There were no boycotts.

Over the weekend, Peggy Noonan wrote “President Trump Declares Independence,” noting  his refreshing message to America, Remember those things I said in the campaign? I meant them. I meant it all ”

The new White House website provides proof.

Those of us who waited in the long lines to attend Donald Trump’s rallies, connected with him and voted for him — get it. Liberals are in for the same tough ride we had under the Constitution-shredding Obama, but will not handle it with grace. “Snowflakes” that they are, they’ll need more safe rooms, coloring books and hot cocoa.


John McCain’s latest border security deceit

January 14, 2017

McCain’s entire career has been marked by partnering with the most liberal Democrats — along with Jon Kyl and now Jeff Flake — to promote amnesty for illegals. The most recent charade was the infamous Gang of Eight, orchestrated by the AZ duo and their leftist Senate cohorts Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Robert Menendez and Michael Bennet. They were joined by by Republicrats Lindsey Grahamnesty and double talker Marco Rubio.

A recent press release from John McCain’s senate office contains a joint self-congratulatory I’ll-slap-your-back-if-you-slap-mine routine with AZ CD 2 Rep. Martha McSally.

Since the issue is about the duo’s Border Security Technology Accountability Act, conservative’s antenna should be rising, since we know McCain has long been in the forefront of amnesty proposals  — not implementing security to stop illegal invaders. The deceptive press release is up on his website, which we have no reason to link to. The bill can be read here.

John McCain is working to deflect his now admitted involvement in the effort to dismantle President-elect Donald Trump before he is even inaugurated, by delivering vile and unverified allegations with shady origins against Trump to FBI director James Comey.  McCain still hasn’t gotten over his colossal loss to Barack Obama and his visceral hatred/jealousy of Donald Trump capturing the American imagination has consumed him. McCain withdrew his iffy endorsement of the Republican nominee. Jeff Flake appeared wherever a camera would train on him, to declare he wasn’t voting for Trump. That means both of Arizona’s marginal senators, either by acts of omission or commission,  voted for Hillary Clinton.

Returning to the Border Security Technology Accountability Act, we’ve been down this path before. McSally introduced a bill with the same title July 27, 2015. And technology has been tried and failed since the days of the first Homeland Security chief, Judge Michael Chertoff’s efforts to get a 28-mile  “virtual fence” that pledged to use radar and surveillance cameras. That was during  the George W. Bush administration, which also gave a wink and a nod to illegals crossing into the U.S.

It was a costly farce then and it will be a costly farce now.  Donald Trump is committed to a border wall and so are most Americans who were moved to support him on that compelling issue. SRAZ wrote,” Virtual fence is a virtual flop,” in April 2008. Earlier, in Feb. 2008, we covered,Virtual fence “looks good” to Homeland Insecurity Chief Chertoff,” regarding the technical malfunctions, glitches and postponements carrying $ multimillion price tags. This postand we’ve got a bridge to sell you,” which includes a list of just some of the terror sponsoring nations breaching our border plainly illustrates nothing has changed.

Believe these practiced liars at your own peril.


Yes, we can pay for the wall

January 8, 2017

WaPO refuses to allow the word “Obamacare” to appear in print, but calls national border security, “Trump’s wall”

The double standard is laughable. The Washington Post insists on calling problem plagued Obamacare the “Affordable Care Act,” to remove the onus from Barack Obama. Yet here in Arizona the costs have risen an astronomical 116%, taking it far from the realm of “affordable.’

So it is when you buy ink by the barrel, as a wise observer once noted.

The newspaper, which might as well declare itself an arm of the DNC for its blatant liberal bias, tries to configure the Republican majority House and Senate at odds with itself over “the party’s deeply held desire to rein in government spending in conflict with its long-standing goal of cracking down on illegal immigration and toughening border security.”

The WaPo oddly refers to the construction project that resonated with voters as “Trump’s wall” and disingenuously ponders how the project will be funded.  The newspaper echoes the words of Vicente Fox, Mexico’s former president, who insultingly questions the authenticity of Trump’s election, and then calls “Trump’s wall” a “racist monument.”

On the campaign trail, President-elect Trump said he would get Mexico to pay for the construction. There are many ways of accomplishing that fiscal feat. We offer a simple one. Warn the recipients that the gravy train is screeching to a halt for those aiding in the invasion of the United States.

FY 2017 U.S. foreign aid committed to Mexico $134,664,000.

The seven countries of Central America: Belize: $1,250,000; Guatemala: $145,105,000; El Salvador: $87,982,000; Honduras: $105,655,000; Nicaragua: $14,800,000; Costa Rica: $1,825,000; and Panama: $3,200,000

Then add in: Dominican Republic: $22,481,000 and Haiti: $218,050,000. And would you believe? American taxpayers even pony up for the Communist dictatorship of Cuba to the tune of $15,000,000

We have not even checked out the vast amounts of foreign aid directed to South American countries in 2017 which also funnel their citizens to the U.S. Withholding or drastically curtailing it will go a long way toward loosening up money to pay for the wall.

Of major importance are the $ billions in “remittance funds” sent back to their homeland by foreign nationals illegally living in the U.S., according to this 2016 General Accounting Office study to congress, which says “remittances have become an important and stable source of funds that exceeds revenues from exports of goods.” The transfer of our cash “can also be used to launder proceeds from different types of criminal activities, including drug trafficking and human smuggling, through methods such as structuring.” The high reporting threshold of $3,000 lets individuals send broken-up payments without raising questions. This transfer of our wealth needs to be heavily taxed or stopped.

Breitbart reports remittances to Mexico rose 25% after Trump’s election.

It’s past time to rein in this sapping of our resources. In these perilous times, we need to rebuild our military, invest in our infrastructure and secure our border.


Rev. Franklin Graham sparks controversy for saying “God showed up”

December 30, 2016

Graham one of six offering readings and words of prayer at Trump’s swearing-in ceremony

 Leave it to the left-wing media to label Rev. Franklin Graham “controversial.” Graham, the son of renown preacher Rev. Billy Graham, is among several religious leaders slated to give  readings and benedictions at President-elect Donald Trump’s Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration. Franklin Graham previously gave the invocation for George W. Bush.

An early Trump supporter, Graham endorsed his candidacy in 2011. Since the election, Graham has appeared at many of Trump’s national “Thank You” rallies.

 “Many thought the Trump/Pence ticket didn’t have a chance. None of them understand the God-factor,” Evangelist Franklin Graham told the crowd in Mobile, Alabama.

“I don’t have any scientific information. I don’t have a stack of emails to read to you. But I have an opinion. I believe it was God. God showed up. He answered the prayers of hundreds of thousands of people across this land who had been praying for this country,” the Washington Examiner reports.

Franklin Graham is no longer a Republican, having left the GOP last year due to his disapproval of Congressional Republicans joining Democrats on the passage of the massive 2,000 page, $1.8 trillion omnibus tax and spending bill that continues to fund abortion provider Planned Parenthood. The bill was praised by House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate President Mitch McConnell and quickly signed by Obama, who met little resistance. Planned Parenthood’s officials were caught on tape haggling over the price in the sale of fetal body parts. One abortionist laughingly stated she needed enough to buy herself a Lamborghini sports car.

Joining Rev. Franklin Graham at Trump’s presidential inauguration ceremonies will be other religious leaders, who are named in this Press Release from the Presidential Inaugural Committee.


D.R.E.A.M. Act morphs into dreamy amnesty

December 11, 2016

Illegal’s impossible to verify claims set stage for nightmare rather than dream

Once upon a time — in 2001 — we first heard of something known as the D.R.E.A.M. Act. The acronym stood for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors. It was introduced as S.1291. The 2002 bill was drafted before the speech police ruled the words “illegal” and “alien” unacceptable, so they were used extensively throughout the bill.

The D.R.E.A.M. Act was a liberal dream come true, a warm and fuzzy piece of legislation lacking any means of verification while permanently swelling the ranks of the Democrat Party.

Those applying for the gift of U.S. citizenship need only affirm they were 16 years of age or younger when they initially entered the United States and are currently 35 years of age or younger. They have to declare that they have been persons of good moral character since initially being brought to the U.S. as children by their parents — illegally. Verifying how many came as babes in arms or ably propelled themselves over the border last year at age 34 is impossible to substantiate.

Along the way those hoping to access the overly generous provisions of the D.R.E.A.M. Act, simply became known by the sympathy provoking term, “Dreamers.” They are no longer “alien minors,” but merely those requiring compassion. There are consequences to this massive scale manipulation and the victims are not the illegals, but our own American citizen children.

The so-called “Dreamers” represent a dual assault on law-abiding, taxpaying American citizens and legal immigrants, since public universities grant illegals in-state tuition. American parents who send their children to out-of-state colleges have to pay higher tuition than illegals.

Most importantly, this scam results in illegals taking the limited number of spaces available for students at public universities, crowding out deserving American students and eventually competing with them in the job market.

Any illegal who claims they entered the U.S. before they were 16 years old and have lived here for at least five years can gain legal residence and ultimately citizenship merely by graduating high school, attending two years of college or entering the military. But even those requirements can be waived if they would cause “hardship.”

The biggest winners of this reckless lunacy will be the millions of illegals whose status is legitimized, and universities striving to enhance their numbers of Hispanic undergrads to 25 percent in order to qualify for a $1 billion fund set up by the Department of Education for “Hispanic Serving Institutions.” Over a dozen Arizona schools are on the notorious list.

President-elect Donald Trump has stated he will terminate DACA, (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), an executive action signed into law by Obama in 2012. It provides an exemption from deportation and a renewable two-year work permit. 

Let’s be clear. Dreamers are dreaming of one thing: Stealth Amnesty. They are being aided and abetted by the Arizona Board of Regents and the Phoenix Union High School District, funded by citizen’s tax dollars while creating impediments to our own kids.


Obama claims his intelligence let him down on rise of ISIS

December 9, 2016

Attempting to shift blame, Obama refuses to accept responsibility for increased terrorism on his watch — or even say the words “radical Islamic terrorism”

On his way out the door Barack Obama, in this CNN interview, claims the ability of ISIS (which he steadfastly refers to as ISIL) to spread took him by surprise. It was not on my “intelligence radar screen.”

Clearly this video shows that not to be the case. Obama’s own intelligence officials were telling Congress of their terror concerns. The date each of them testified follows their name and position.

James Clapper, Director of National Security – Jan. 29, 2014

John Brennan, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency – Feb. 4, 2014

Brett McGurk, State Department Presidential Envoy for ISIL Coalition – Feb. 5, 2014

Lt. General (Ret.) Michael Flynn, former Defense Intelligence Agency Director – Feb. 11, 2014

Each knowledgeable official, testifying before Congress, tells a decidedly different story from the one attempting to be sold by President Barack Hussein Obama.

Exhibiting his deep disconnect, Obama previously compared groups linked to al-Qaeda as “JV Team“ (Junior Varsity). Brief video under link.

The latest mantra sung by the Democrats is “fake news.”  This Obama tweet is evidence of his disconnect with reality as he peddles his own fakery, while disregarding the multitude of terrorist acts perpetrated on our soil.


Sheriff David Clarke perfectly describes Obama’s actions

Obama opens prison doors, allows more refugees, considers additional amnesty for illegals

Barack Obama has been on a clemency roll as he heads out the door. On Tuesday he commuted the sentences of 79 drug offenders bringing the total number of federal inmates who’ve had their sentences reduced by the soon to be exiting president to 1,023. He has now granted clemency to more inmates than the past 11 presidents combined

Feeling emboldened, Democrat U.S. Reps. Zoe Lofgren, Lucille Roybal-Allard and Jeff Flake’s radical left-wing amnesty buddy, Luis Gutierrez, who has longstanding ties to the American Communist and Socialist parties —  recently sent this letter to Barack Obama imploring him to use his pardon authority to forgive the past and future civil immigration offenses of the estimated 750,000 impossible to verify so-called “DREAMers.” These foreign nationals, many now adults with families of their own, all claim they were brought here as young children in violation of the law by their illegal parents. Obama granted them deportation deferrals under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. They are still illegally in the United States, taking university placements and jobs from American citizens. Rather than being a DREAM, this constitutes a nightmare, as conservative Human Events reveals.

Obama also plans on upping the ante on unable-to-be-vetted Syrian “refugees,” increasing their numbers in the United States by another 10,000.  

Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke gets it.  He says Obama is “like a tenant who has been evicted and will trash the place on his way out.”
