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.

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.”


Failed prez candidate McCain threatens Trump, Arizonans

November 21, 2016

Better brush up on our spelling

According to John McCain’s assigned sycophantic reporter at the daily newspaper, the elderly senator is not only warning President-elect Donald Trump that the Republican controlled U.S. Senate “will not be his rubber stamp,” but he won’t rule out running again for another 6-year term at age 86. We can imagine him mumbling under his breath, “No one can do the job like me.” (video)

Dan Nowicki quotes McCain as saying, “I feel great; my mother will be 105 in February.”

Our Monday morning prediction? We’re going to have to learn to spell Giuliani, as in Secretary of State. Mitt Romney was a bridge too far as a 2008 and 2012 candidate.  He‘d be a mega mistake as incoming President Trump’s  foreign policy adviser.


Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter

November 20, 2016

As we enter this Thanksgiving week, we’d like to give thanks for the wisdom and wit of Dr. Thomas Sowell, still writing splendidly and imparting his own special brand of insight in his 86th year.

This post is not a break from politics — few among us actually yearn for that as we still revel in the recent election results and now await President-elect Donald Trump’s full cabinet appointments and inauguration. Americans spoke decisively with the 2016 election of the Donald Trump / Mike Pence ticket and Republican majorities in the U.S. House and Senate — having had their fill of “Hope and Change” that was mostly played out on golf courses and a world-wide apology tour.

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to readWhat now for Obamacare and the Court?

Dr. Sowell’s column was posted in the New Hampshire Union Leader.  The far-left Arizona Republic no longer has an op-ed page. The newspaper only prints ops. Its own. Opinions that are liberally flavored with its favorite seasonings of open borders salsa and far-left extremism, as they routinely endorse George Soros funded candidates, as evidenced here and here.


Jeff Flake brings in the old guns for campaign kickoff

The Flake refuses to support GOP presidential nominee, but wants our vote

The dino duo of John McCain and Jon Kyl is ready to reprise the rusty act that barely squeaked Jeff Flake across the finish line during his maiden senate race. With all of the heavy lifting they did for him, Flake managed a slim 3-point margin of victory in 2012. Former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona, a Democrat George W. Bush appointee who both McCain and Kyl previously supported (video), turned out to be a more formidable foe than expected and Flake never came close to fulfilling the 11-to-16 point projected lead.

The pro-amnesty Arizona Republic newspaper was also giving him grief when he emulated his mentors John McCain and Jon Kyl (brief campaign videos under links) in an effort to win votes, and went hard-line against the illegal invasion.  Flake was scornfully blasted as a mere “politician, no longer a statesman” in an editorial. His politically motivated and momentary change of heart was labeled “jarring.” The editoralist need not have worried. Immediately after warming the seat of his plush chair on the banks of the Potomac, Flake joined McCain on an amnesty scheme.

For a memory refresher, read the March 2011 postOops — Jeff Flake’s crown slips as he sinks to mere McPolitician.”  And remember Gun Owners of America accuses Flake of stabbing gun owners in the back. In June, we posted Jeff Flake colludes with liberals on gun control.

But this Saturday at an early morning $30 breakfast — your used “souvenir” hot beverage mug is available for an additional $10 —  at a hotel that touts itself as a “3.2-mile drive from the Phoenix Zoo,” the amnesty trio will be glad-handing and making promises. McCain, now in his 80s, will be  4 days away from his sixth six-year senate race results. Yet, he magnanimously finds time to help his doppelganger Jeff Flake. Kyl even took valuable time away from his lucrative duties as a top DC lobbyist at a multinational firm in an effort to ensure smooth sailing for Flake.

Count on their efforts falling on deaf ears. As Conservative Republicans are working tirelessly to get Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump elected, Jeff the Flake has steadfastly and publicly refused to endorse or even vote for Trump. McCain has withdrawn his lukewarm support.

Constitutional Conservative Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and two-term state senator has recently announced her challenge to freshman senator Jeff Flake. She’s battle-tested, having come off a senate race against deceitful, Soros-backed John McCain. We were proud to support Kelli Ward in that race, and are committed to her success in the upcoming senate race. The stakes are too high to equivocate. Jeff Flake is beatable.


Hypocrisy abounds as Marxist pope mocks U.S. election

October 3, 2016

While discussing the U.S. presidential candidates with a gaggle of reporters aboard his private jet returning from a three-day visit to the to the former Soviet Republics of Georgia and Azerbaijan, Pope Francis cunningly replied to a question dealing with the problems both candidates might present for devout Catholics. He responded with these slippery words, “During political campaigns, I never say a word. The people are sovereign. I would only say, study the proposals well, pray and choose with your conscience.”

Then unable to restrain himself, claiming he wanted to talk about a “fictional situation,” Francis proceeded to insult the United States and our citizens.

“When in any country there are two, three or four candidates who don’t satisfy everyone, it means that perhaps the political life of that country has become too politicized and that it does not have much political culture,” he said.

“People say ‘I’m from this party’ or ‘I’m from that party,’ but effectively, they don’t have clear thoughts about the basics, about proposals,” he lectured.

Really? In Italy’s 2015 presidential election, members of the Electoral College representing seven major political parties voted on several dozen candidates. Only members of Parliament (Senators) and regional delegates are entitled to vote . Does Francis think they have a preferable “political culture?”  And what about the Italian citizens? Does it bother him that they have no say in their own governance? In his homeland of Argentina, “free direct elections” have not been the norm until recently. Many heads of state attained their post via Coup d’état.

This past February, while returning from a politically timed trip to the Mexican side of the U.S. / Mexican border, Francis opined that Donald Trump’s pledge to build a border wall to control the invasion of illegal foreign nationals into the United States exposed him as, “not Christian.” An odd assertion from a church leader who lives amid splendor inside a massive 50-foot-tall, ten-feet thick wall surrounding the fortress that is Vatican City.

“I am a pawn?’ he asked at the time. “Well, maybe, I don’t know. I’ll leave that up to your judgment and that of the people.“ He continued, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the Gospel. As far as what you said about whether I would advise to vote or not to vote, I am not going to get involved in that. I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that.”

Francis, who opted to visit with the Communist Castro brothers in Cuba prior to addressing Congress needs to stay out of U.S. politics. It is neither “fitting nor proper” to borrow a couple of words from Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

The President of Italy has the ability to appoint Senators for Life. We know how well that concept works out here, with arrogant octogenarian John McCain unable to relinquish power as he runs for yet another 6-year term in his 80s. Today we present the most recent video briefing in the ongoing series “Never McCaintitled “Senate and Unity Concerns.”
