Foolish do-gooders aid and abet illegal invasion

April 22, 2019

Righteous absurdity of the left

The Easter Sunday edition of the local newspaper devoted front page coverage, including two jump pages, to a 74-year-old local grandmother who opens her small condo to hordes of illegal aliens. The article is headlined, “We are called to welcome strangers…Arizonan opens home, heart to asylum seekers.” A more fitting title would be, “Misguided do-gooder* aids and abets illegal invasion.”

Her home is described as “spotless” although the photos belie that depiction. Truth on any level simply has no relevancy when the topic is illegal aliens. Imagine a neighbor harboring criminals steps away from your home. Yet she and others working in concert with their churches, are extolled for feeding, clothing and temporarily housing Central American illegals now breaching our border by the 100‘s of thousands as they caravan through facilitating Mexico. The illegals, referred to as “guests,” are coddled until they are able to fan out cross the United States and access taxpayer-funded benefits. Any children they have once here are automatically American citizens based on flawed interpretations of the Fourteen Amendment, able to exploit absurd chain migration policies to bring in other relatives.

A pastor acknowledges not all of his congregants are happy with his church’s involvement, with some concerned that “publicity could lead to anti-immigrant protests from so-called patriot groups, which have occurred at other churches.”

Understand that if you believe in legal immigration and respect for the law, you are on the wrong side of this issue and your patriotism is open to question.

These brief insights aim to give our readers a sample of what the increasingly radical left-wing newspaper pushes as it attempts to make aiding criminality an act of faith-based decency. The failing Arizona Republic expends its last gasps of breath struggling to normalize the abnormal from deviancy to criminality, but is fooling no one but itself — evidenced by the fact that subscriptions for the anorexic, poor excuse for a newspaper continue to plummet. Parent company Gannett Co. Inc. continues to fail and has been the subject of hostile takeover bids as profit and revenue fall short of estimates.

For a cogent view on the impending prospects of such irrational tactics, read “Amnesty: Bad Policy, Even Worse Politics,by Bradley Betters — posted on American Thinker.

Christians target of Muslim Sri Lankan Easter bombers

April 21, 2019

“Religion of Peace” update

The U.K.‘s Daily Mail reports on the bloody carnage perpetrated by radical Muslims on Easter Sunday as coordinated bombings were carried out against Christian worshipers in Sri Lankan churches. Initial reports list at least 207 dead and nearly 500 wounded, including foreign visitors.

Three luxury hotels, frequented by tourists, were also targeted as eight near-simultaneous explosions took place across the country. Thirty-five foreigners, including Americans, British, Chinese, Dutch and Portuguese are reported killed in the blasts.

Although several of the perpetrators of the vicious crimes were suicide bombers — one of whom strategically placed himself in a hotel breakfast buffet line — seven suspects have been arrested.

Sri Lanka’s police chief issued a nationwide alert 10 days before the bomb attacks that suicide bombers planned to hit “prominent churches.”

“A foreign intelligence agency has reported that the NTJ (National Thowheeth Jama’ath) is planning to carry out suicide attacks targeting prominent churches as well as the Indian high commission in Colombo,” the alert stated.

The NTJ is a radical Muslim group in Sri Lanka that gained notoriety last year when it was linked to the vandalizing of Buddhist statues.   

According to the country’s 2012 census, Sri Lanka’s total population, then estimated at 22 million included 70% Buddhist, 13% Hindu, 10% Muslim, and 7% Christian.


Walking outside the lines isn’t cool, in AZ it’s deadly 

April 15, 2019

States that legalized marijuana use since 2012 experienced a collective 16.4% increase in pedestrian fatalities

It took a couple of student reporters at the daily two additional pages backing up their front page investigative report on crosswalk deaths that have spiraled in Arizona. Including an oversize a graphic and aerial photo view of a mid-street crosswalk in West Phoenix, the report is titled, “The  Perils for Pedestrians,” linking to Arizona Department of Transportation Crash Data.

The conclusion reached by the duo is found in this adjacent headline: “Key to solving problem lies in overhaul of state’s roadways.” Not to belittle the needless deaths, but the reality is it’s not the roadways, it’s the pedestrians. Though the authors point to the deadliest area being on a stretch of 27th Avenue, north of Bethany Home Road, referring to it as “dimly lit,” the problem would exist if high intensity beacons were trained on the thoroughfare.

The escalation in fatalities dovetails with the lack if respect for authority and laws. Few pedestrians walk up to a crosswalk to cross the street. It has become all too common to see parents crossing mid-block with young children in tow.  Not only are the parents imperiling their safety, but they are teaching their children that the lines in the street don’t apply to them.  A police officer asked about the lack of enforcement when this dangerous behavior is observed, stated, “It’s a cultural thing.”

What culture teaches their children that rules apply to others but not to them, or their view children as expendable?

Another factor to be considered is the peak in pedestrian fatalities occurring on Saturday nights and weekends when alcohol is frequently a factor.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released preliminary fatal traffic crash data for all road users for calendar year 2016 (the most recent year that complete crash data is available) and estimates show that this may have been the deadliest year since 1990 for pedestrians. Motorcyclist and pedestrian deaths accounted for more than a third of the year-to-year increase.

The Governors Highway Safety Association Spotlight on Pedestrian Traffic Fatalities, reported nearly 6,000 pedestrians were killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2017 based on data provided by all 50 State Highway Safety Offices and the District of Columbia.

Among the reported findings:

  • Twenty three states (and Washington DC) had increases in pedestrian fatalities.
  • Twenty states had decreases in pedestrian fatalities.
  • Seven states had no change in pedestrian fatalities.
  • Both Hawaii and Wyoming had only 1 pedestrian death, while California had 352.
  • Arizona was among five states (including California, Florida, New York and Texas) that accounted for 43% of all pedestrian deaths.
  • The seven states (and Washington DC) that have legalized marijuana use since 2012 experienced a collective 16.4% increase in pedestrian fatalities in 2017 (compared to same time period in 2016). All other states had a collective 5.8% decrease.

AZ Rep. Stringer outed as child molester, resigns

March 30, 2019

By now, Arizonans who aren’t living under a rock know the stomach-turning facts behind David Stringer’s abrupt resignation from the state legislature this past week, where he represented LD 1. Stringer, a 71-year-old Republican, was elected in 2017 after previously having served on the Prescott Planning and Zoning Commission.

The revelations are so disgusting the March 29, edition of the Phoenix New Times report on the recent disclosures concerning Stringer, carries a “Content warning: This article contains graphic descriptions of sexual assault involving children.

Imagine. Someone with the responsibility of enacting laws that the rest of us must abide by, isn’t even able to be trusted to have a normal interaction with kids. He repeatedly paid young boys and a disabled teen he picked up in a Baltimore park for sex. He was charged in 1983 in Maryland, though his record was inexplicably expunged.

David Stringer’s campaign website —- oddly still up —- lists him as “PRO-FAMILY.” It’s a sure bet families with young sons wouldn’t agree.

The unmarried Stringer devotes an entire page to a report titled,Representative Stringer Responds to Reports of 35-year-old Arrest.It was published in the Prescott eNews, in which he holds a financial interest. A disclosure of the relationship is contained in the report.

He has been persona non grata since making bizarre comments such as “black people don’t blend in,” when speaking with a group of ASU students. Stringer has resisted bi-partisan calls for him to resign. 

The arrogance of this criminal to seek public office after moving to Arizona is astonishing. Also puzzling is how he was able to retain his legal credentials and be listed as a member in good standing since 2004 with the State Bar of Arizona.

The New Times has been on top of this since January, when it printed a redacted copy of Stringer’s 1983 criminal case history. He was charged with multiple sex offenses, including child pornography.


Illegal alien crisis reaches breaking point

March 29, 2019

Overburdened Border Patrol is releasing illegal aliens on to city streets in Arizona and Texas, a fact the Arizona Republic buries on page 11

The Trojan Horse symbolizes a saga in Greek mythology describing the strategy used by ancient Greeks to overtake the powerful city of Troy that had remained unconquerable during a decade long war. Finally the Greeks constructed a gigantic wooden horse in which they hid an elite fighting force. The horse, considered a victory trophy by the Trojans, was wheeled into the walled city as the Greeks appeared to retreat. According to legend, using the cover of darkness, the soldiers stowed inside the horse, crept out, opened the gates and let the rest of the army enter. The result was the destruction of Troy followed by a takeover by the invaders. The war ended, and so did Troy.

The United States is now in a similar position. There is no wooden horse, but there are determined invaders —- and we, like the Trojans, appear to be aiding and abetting our own demise.

John Binder, writing for Breitbart News, citing facts and figures from government sources, reports the United States is projected to add about 1.5 million illegal aliens to the American population by the end of the year, if current rates of Catch and Release border crossings and the 300,000 to 400,000 visa overstays remain consistent.

These numbers are in addition to the unverifiable tens of millions* of illegal aliens who are already fanned out across our country. This incalculable range represents the fact that we have lost control of how many invaders have breached our border. Their birth rates surpass native-born Americans.

Additionally, the astronomical numbers don’t factor in the estimated 500,000 illegal aliens who successfully cross into the U.S. undetected by Border Patrol agents. They are typically deported only after committing crimes in the U.S. —- initiating a cycle of repeated returns and deportations.  These are recent Border Patrol statistics.

The unskilled and uneducated Central American and Mexican hordes who have no respect for our sovereignty and are loath to assimilate, recreate the barrios they left behind after arriving in the USA.  Once here, they are able to access taxpayer-funded benefits as they fan out across our nation, all too often aided and abetted by unconscionable churches desperate to fill their emptying pews with grateful invaders.

President Donald Trump ran and was elected on his promise to build a border wall. Congressional Democrats have thwarted his efforts at every turn, denying the funding needed to complete construction. They tout technology that has been a costly failure since it was initially implemented. SRAZ posted,Virtual fence is a virtual flop,“ andVirtual fence “looks good” to Homeland Insecurity Chief Chertoff,” nearly a dozen years ago. The only thing that has changed is the invaders now boldly arrive in caravans, knowing that the leftist dominated U.S. House of Representatives refuses to advance funding President Trump has repeatedly requested. The visceral hatred they have for him trouncing Hillary Clinton in 2016 supersedes any rational thoughts of providing security to America’s citizens.

This Roy Beck video is not new, but remains as relevant as when it first introduced.

Smollett aided beating the rap by Obama, $oros connections

March 28, 2019

The Chicago Tribune details the double standard for celebrity Jussie Smollett in what turned out to be a hoax rather than the “hate crime” he reported to police. The headline from the local newspaper blasts, “Chicago police files on Jussie Smollett investigation show behind-the-scenes maneuvers.”

The back story is even more despicable than his fraudulent tale concocted to boost his salary for the televised series in which he participated.

By all accounts, the police work — including thousands of hours diverted from real crimes in the war zone of Chicago — was diligent and impeccably carried out.  Smollett, black and gay, alleged that he had been a crime victim carried out by two men who bound and poured bleach over him.  And what a surprise, the assailants who just happened to be wearing President Trump’s MAGA (Make America Great Again) hats yelled racial slurs at Smollett. It plays out like a script, right down to a threatening letter that was sent to Smollett after he wasn’t getting the reaction he desired. He was behind that, too. The men, Nigerian brothers, were found to have cashed a $3,500 partial payment check from Smollett. The incident supposedly occurred at 2 a.m. as Smollett was walking back to his apartment from a Subway sandwich shop —- assuring there would be no witnesses.

Problems arose when surveillance tapes showed a much different scenario than the one described by actor Smollett. In the end the 16-count indictment handed down by a Chicago Grand Jury meant nothing. He ultimately was sentenced to a couple of days of community service logging it in with Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition. That, and forfeiture of his $10,000 bond was bizarrely enough to satisfy prosecutors in Chicago.

The most riveting aspect of the contemptible saga is the chain of “angels” who shone their purifying light on this fake victim of a sham hate crime specifically constructed with a vicious anti-Trump angle. Former First Lady Michelle Obama had a hand in this legal debacle. Her onetime chief of staff, Tina Tchen, also a lawyer, personally contacted the Illinois State’s Attorney to put in a good word for Smollett, exchanging  text messages (here and here) with prosecutor Kim Foxx before charges were dropped. In one of the messages, Tchen urged Foxx to convince Chicago police to hand the investigation over to the FBI, where Obama still had sway. Replete with trendy liberal speak the exchanges are filled with “reaching out.” Liberals don’t contact one another. Neither do they have problems. Liberals have “issues.”

Messages on this level are compelling stuff if you’re a Democrat in Barack Obama’s hometown.

Foxx was a former chief aide to Cook County Board president before she caught the eye of Socialist billionaire George Soros  He’s also a player, funneling a reported* two $300,000 donations to a Super PAC to support Kim Foxx’ campaign, an additional $333,000 personal contribution, plus $75,000 after she won —- all in his quest to realign the criminal justice system in his skewed image. He’s also funded Secretary of State campaigns and others responsible for election oversight. Soros, who disdains national borders, dumped money into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s race ensuring leftist, wife-beater Paul Penzone had sufficient funding to take out popular, 6-term Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Immediately after being sworn in, and right on cue, Penzone referred to illegal invaders as “guests.”

When Kim Foxx was elected in 2016, she made this statement: “I ran for this office to make sure that we had a criminal justice system people can believe in. That’s my duty.”

Apparently her “duty” cap fell off as she raced to appease the Obama’s and fulfill her obligation to George Soros.

Leftist New Zealand PM irrationally blames guns for massacre

March 18, 2019

Gun restrictions are coming to low crime New Zealand

Following the horrific massacre killing at least 50 people and wounding another 50 in terror attacks targeting two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, the government has responded with exactly the wrong message. In this Guardian article, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is gushingly and favorably compared to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes.

PM Jacinda Ardern — now wearing a wearing hijab, in a sign of solidarity — has announced New Zealand’s government will reform the country’s gun laws in the wake of last Friday’s carnage. The hate-based slaughter of Islamic worshippers in was perpetrated by 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant, an Australian, who is a self-described white supremacist. He is in police custody.

Speaking after her weekly cabinet meeting, PM Ardern stated that government ministers had agreed “in principle” to reform gun laws. “Within 10 days of this horrific act of terrorism we will have announced reforms which will, I believe, make our community safer,” she said.

How much safer?  According the New Zealand police, there were 69 total murders with a firearm between Jan.1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2017 in the entire nation.

Obviously New Zealand is reeling from the unspeakable assault perpetrated by a vicious criminal. Yet vowing to enact tighter gun laws is not the answer. Had some of the people in the mosques been armed, they would have been able to respond to the murderous rampage. Gun restrictions only impact the law abiding. Those intent on evil will always find a way to carry it out. We’ve already witnessed vicious knifings and intentional vehicular homicides perpetrated in Europe. The United Kingdom has some of the toughest gun control laws in the world.

The U.K.’s Sun newspaper in an article headlined, “Endless Knife Crime,” reported the total number of attacks involving a knife or bladed instrument recorded in 2018 rose 16 percent to 40,147, a seven-year-high.

London’s Telegraph News covered the lengthy series of intentional vehicular homicides in this report headlined, “Europe from Westminster to Nice: Vehicle rampage attacks in UK and Europe.” The gruesome list culminated with the July 14, 2016 Bastille Day slaughter in which 87 celebrants, including families with children, were killed and 458 were injured near the seafront of Nice, France, when a lorry was intentionally driven into the crowd. No gun was used to perpetrate this mass slaughter.

Watch this interview with Second Amendment attorney Stephen Halbrook, as he explains the current generous local gun laws in New Zealand, which is a peaceable society.
