Sen. Sessions: The straight scoop on Obamatrade

June 12, 2015

If, like many of us, you have questions about the complexities of the fast-tracking of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and its multifaceted related appendages —-  and want clarification regarding the authority transferred from Congress to the Executive and, ultimately, to international bureaucrats via this bill, it is logically  explained here.

Sen. Jeff Sessions is a man of integrity. The U.S. Senator from Alabama possesses a legal background few can match. He began his career as an Assistant U S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama. Later, he was nominated by President Reagan to serve as the U.S. Attorney for Alabama’s Southern District, a position he held for 12 years. Sessions was then elected Alabama Attorney General, serving as the state’s chief legal officer until he entered the U.S. Senate in 1997. In 2014, the people of Alabama, who obviously appreciate their senator, overwhelmingly voted to return Sessions to the Senate for a fourth term, with more than 97 percent of all votes cast.

Sen. Sessions does a masterful job explaining what Obamatrade actually is. Read Critical Alert: Fast-track would pre-approve formation of sweeping transnational union.

Obamatrade: Republicrats indistinguishable from Dems

June 11, 2015

Breitbart’s Big Government exposes U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as “Pelosi-esque” on fast-tracking and passing Obama’s clandestine trade scheme.  “It’s declassified and made public once it’s agreed to,” Ryan said of Obamatrade in Rules Committee testimony.

Rational Arizona voters, this is where the rubber meets the road. Watch the votes on this deceptive measure and cast your votes accordingly when these go-along-to-get-along colluding phonies come up for reelection. Anyone who supports this measure is not worthy of being returned to congress.

This is how Seeing Red AZ characterized this massive and disreputable power grab which gives Barack Obama irreversible authority since treaties supersede statutes under the U.S. Constitution. Be sure to watch the J.D. Hayworth interview in which Dick Morris exposes the indefensible components of what is being blandly characterized as a Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). 

Observer News reports that foreign governments are paying former U.S. Senate leaders to sell TPP.  Tom Daschle and Tony Podesta, brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta, been paid handsomely to counsel Japan on U.S. policy. Other nations involved in the treaty have also hired similar high-profile consultants and lobbyists.

All the rest of us have to persuade congress are our voices and our votes.

Regardless of where you live, here is the contact information.

Act now! Time is running out.

Leftist Sen. wants RICO law to criminalize global warming skeptics

June 3, 2015

The Weekly Standard reports on the colossal infringement on liberty that a Democrat U.S. Senator is peddling regarding the disputed theory of a global warming crisis.

Sheldon Whitehouse, representing Rhode Island, the nation’s smallest state, appears to have a constitutional comprehension of equal size as he slams global warming skeptics, claiming they  need to be reined in under RICO statutes. What makes his view even more appalling is the fact that he was Rhode Island’s U.S. Attorney —- appointed by Bill Clinton —-  and was the state’s Attorney General, before being elected to the senate.  All the more alarming, he is a member of the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution.

This GovTrack analysis of Whitehouse places him to the left of Sens. Blumenthal, Boxer and Schumer and veering close to self-described Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders.

Writing in the Washington Post, Whitehouse declared, “Fossil fuel companies and their allies are funding a massive and sophisticated campaign to mislead the American people about the environmental harm caused by carbon pollution. Their activities are often compared to those of Big Tobacco denying the health dangers of smoking. Big Tobacco’s denial scheme was ultimately found by a federal judge to have amounted to a racketeering enterprise.”

Given his legal background, Whitehouse’s convoluted thinking is inexcusable.  Passed in 1970, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is a federal law designed to combat organized crime in the United States. It allows prosecution and civil penalties for racketeering activity performed as part of an ongoing criminal enterprise. RICO statutes were never intended to be an infringement on our First Amendment rights.

Not buying into the alarmist global warming scheme, which has now morphed into climate change, due to recent colder than usual temperatures around the globe —- part of cyclical meteorological fluctuations —- could now makes you a criminal.

The electorate of Rhode Island should be embarrassed. The rest of us should be very concerned.

Why McCain is ditching “rock star” Hillary for Lindsey

June 2, 2015

In 2013, Arizona’s doddering senior senator John McCain proclaimed Hillary Clinton a “rock star” who he could support for the presidency in 2016.

His deep affection for Clinton remained true, even in the face of the outrage he expressed over the four dead Americans at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya —- left unprotected by the State Department Clinton oversaw and the barrage of lies told in the cover-up effort. Then on October 6, 2014 came the tear jerking  news that the two-timing McCain was jilting Hillary

We wrote at the time: The old crooner either forgot he was already serenading his liberal honey Hillary, or he suddenly discovered she isn’t quite as alluring as his submissive South Carolinian buddy Lindsey Graham. Either way, the daily reported that “if U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham decides to run for president in 2016, he can count on the whole-hearted support of the 2008 Republican nominee, U.S. Sen. John McCain, his longtime ally on national security, immigration reform and other matters.”

“Of course,” McCain, said, explaining his change of heart. “I mean, we’re the closest of friends.”

These days, McCain’s fickle-heartedness has an even more pragmatic thrust propelling his decision-making. Since he was blowing kisses in Hillary’s direction, elected Republican precinct committeemen at their January 2014 annual Maricopa County mandatory meeting overwhelmingly passed a resolution to censure him by a vote of 1,150 – 351. A similar, embarrassing  censure was also  passed at the GOP statewide meeting of elected state committeemen two weeks later. At the 2015 GOP Statutory Meeting McCain and Flake were both booed and met by turned backs and an array of derisive lapel buttons and stickers.

Although Lindsey Graham kicked off his presidential bid Monday, he hasn’t even registered a blip on the RealClearPolitics political radar.  And without making it into the top 10 —- which is highly unlikely —-  he won’t make the cut for the August and September debates.

Those details are of little consequence to McCain as he desperately attempts to burnish his tarnished image. He is solely focused on the fact he can’t get away with supporting liberal Hillary when he is likely facing a conservative challenger in state Sen. Kelli Ward.  The family physician, also a lawmaker, mom and military wife, is married to AZ Air National Guard Colonel Michael Ward, who currently serves as Arizona’s Air Surgeon.

McCain, on the other hand, as reported in the Examiner, urged the IRS to target Tea Party, conservative groups, and his operatives have worked to eradicate conservative PC’s in a concerted effort to replace them with mavericky moderates after the censures. FrontPage carries this report detailing how McCain used San Francisco Obama donors to purge conservative precinct committeemen from the Arizona Republican party ranks.

McCain likely recruited Lindsey Graham, his obliging toady and nearly constant companion, to provide him much-needed cover. Why else would the South Carolina senator, who was censured throughout his own state, enter the already packed GOP presidential field where he has little chance of success? 

It’s time for the manipulative and aged RINO McCain to take a rest in one of his eight…or is it seven or nine?…homes. He can’t remember.

Buying American: It’s more difficult than you think

May 26, 2015

…and will only get worse

We’ve all felt the bone-deep frustration of wanting to buy American made items and being met with a sea of foreign produced goods. Whether we’re looking for the latest in technology, a wrench or a new pair of running shoes, the dearth of American products is not only apparent, but often the manufacturing  origin is stealthily concealed.  The words “distributed by” assure consumers of a distribution address in New York. A magnifier is needed to read the much smaller print “Made in China” or PRC (People’s Republic of China).

Eighty-four percent of American consumers say they would rather buy an American-made product, believing them to be more reliable than imported ones, according to a recent survey. Respondents said they were even willing to pay more for U.S. made goods.

Consumer Reports, the longtime rating and recommendations company, gives the lowdown on the issue and provides a sampling of companies that make or assemble at least some of their products in the United States. Trying to sort it out becomes even more confusing, since some primarily American companies may have manufacturing facilities in more than one country.

Food products are not immune from the garbled presentations. They give the example of brands of salmon that are labeled both “wild-caught Alaskan” and “Product of Thailand.” The fish was caught in U.S. waters but took a detour to Asia to be skinned and boned (to take advantage of cheaper labor) before making its return voyage. Under the law, that side trip must be noted.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, American manufacturing lost almost 6 million jobs between 2000 and 2010. “Offshoring” became a buzzword with the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994. But the more recent hemorrhaging of jobs was due in large part to China’s entry into the World Trade Organization in 2001. A decade of BLS data reveals heavy job losses across more than a dozen manufacturing sectors, including apparel and textiles, electrical equipment, iron and steel production, computers, glass, and leather tanning and finishing.

Last Tuesday we wrote that Congressional Republicans are foolishly poised to give Barack Obama irreversible fast track authority on Trans Pacific Partnership, an 11-nation trade agreement that provides an unrestricted flow of workers into the United States. This is particularly dangerous since treaties supersede statutes under the U.S. Constitution.  If you missed the post and accompanying video, take time to acquaint yourself with the facts.

The previous day the post “GOP establishment conspires with Obama on trade deal” reveals the depth of the putrid deception being flung by Republicrats who claim to representative us.

GOP aids Obama’s stealth immigration, climate change power grab & UPDATE

May 19, 2015

Republicans foolishly poised to give Obama fast track on Trans Pacific Partnership, providing irreversible authority, since treaties supersede statutes under U.S. Constitution

This is huge,” Dick Morris tells America‘s Forum host J.D. Hayworth as he discusses Obama’s attempt to fast track Trans Pacific Partnership.*  (video under link)

“I hope that everybody listening takes action, call your senator about it.  If he‘s a Republican. he‘s voting wrong.  I don’t think the people understand that in this deal, which is a trade agreement among Australia, Malaysia, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, Canada, United States, Mexico, Peru and Chili, there is a provision for free flow of workers, just like in the European Union.

What that means is unrestricted immigration.  It means literally that Congress would not have the authority to restrict immigration, because a treaty supersedes a statute under our constitution.”

Morris continues, “Obama is going to try to circumvent the legislative process and use the treaty-making authority do stuff that Congress can’t repeal, and a future president can’t change. As he enters the seventh year of his presidency, that’s what he’s focused on.  Under the guise of a NAFTA-like trade agreement it provides for unrestricted immigration within these eleven countries, which means any Mexican can come here to the United States legally, stay here, be naturalized, become a citizen and vote — and Congress can’t do anything about it. The Constitution enumerates the powers of Congress. One of them is Immigration and Naturalization.  This supersedes that and it does so for all time. Because you can’t repeal a treaty unless the other signatories agree.’

“It also could become the way to get Climate Change in,” Morris warns.  “He’s taking the whole legislative agenda and putting it in a treaty and getting it ratified and then it becomes as good as a Constitutional Amendment.

In this case Obama is putting it in a treaty and asking congress to approve fast track authority.  The idea that with all the power this president has grabbed, the Republicans are about to give him fast track, which means he can do  any trade agreement he wants and ratification is almost automatic, and the Democrats are opposing this. It is entirely Republican votes that are pushing it and they just don’t understand what’s in the damn bill.”

“This is not amnesty,“ Morris tells Hayworth. “Amnesty is for people who are already here.”

Watch this vitally important interview beginning at 5:52.

 * Besides the United States there are 11 other countries involved in  the TPP: :Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.


On Thurs. May 21, 2015, by a roll call vote of 62 to 38, this is the Senate vote on HR 1314. This measure is expected to be the vehicle in the Senate guaranteeing Obama’s trade promotion authority. Check out the votes of Arizona’s Senators.

Middle class incomes plunge as immigration surges

April 24, 2015

Congressional report confirms dire predictions

Wages of America’s middle class have dropped below 1970s levels as immigration has surged 325 percent, according to a new congressional report that puts to rest leftwing claims that native-born Americans are economically enhanced by greater immigration.

The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) report studied immigration and middle class income from 1945-2013 and found that as immigration slowed between 1945 and 1970, American incomes increased. But when immigration expanded, the incomes of the bottom 90 percent of Americans went flat and then dropped beginning in 2000.

In the report to the Senate Judiciary Committee, the CRS confirmed that the foreign-born population of the United States surged 324.5 percent, from 9,740,000 to 41,348,066, from 1970 to 2013. The impact is not insignificant.

Competition for university placement and fewer jobs will increase as our elected representatives continue to ignore the crisis, as the influx of illegal invaders continues unabated.

Yet Barack Obama has virtually erased our southern border. Using executive orders  that even he declared were unlawful, (video) he has granted amnesty to millions of illegals, confident when they vote, they’ll show their appreciation by voting a straight Democrat ticket.

Additionally, he ignores reports of Islamist terrorists entering our country through our unguarded southern border.

Read the fact-filled report by Paul Bedard and the dismal economic predictions in the Washington Examiner. If you have concerns about America’s future and the lives your children and theirs will face, this is reading definitely worth your time.

U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) a steadfast voice exposing amnesty schemes said it best back in 2014, “Never in recent memory has the divide between the everyday citizen and the political elite been as wide as it is now. A sovereign nation establishes rules about who can enter, work, and live within its borders. In every imaginable way, the President has worked to dismantle these rules -— on the border, in our courts, through our visa system, through our asylum system, through our exit-entry system. And with this planned executive action, the President proposes to scrub away what remains of these rules. And Senate Democrats will have been partners in its commission.”

Since then, it’s all too clear Republicans have been equally complicit, falling in line with Obama’s schemes as in Thursday’s confirmation vote of U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch who has acknowledged she will continue to support Obama’s policies. John McCain, standing for reelection couldn’t afford to be in the “yea” column, but his toadies Jeff Flake and Lindsey Graham voted with the unified Democrats.

Have you had enough yet?
