Finger-to-wind Kyrsten Sinema casts her lot with GOP

November 20, 2015

So what do you do when you’re a liberal Democrat up for reelection for the first time in a newly formed swing distinct where registered Independents prevail and Republicans remain a factor? Ask onetime Green Party candidate turned Democrat, Kyrsten Sinema.

Sinema voted with a majority of Republicans, including the entire Arizona GOP delegation Thursday.

Forty-seven other House Democrats also jumped ship — voting to halt admissions and increase security checks on Syrian and Iraqi nationals claiming refugee status to enter the United States. With her vote, Sinema defied Barack Obama‘s veto threat.

The global threat cannot be ignored. Just this morning a luxury hotel in Mali, frequented by tourists, was the scene of yet another bloody rampage as Islamic terrorists seized 170 guests and staff in an ongoing hostage-taking that left at least twenty seven people dead and others wounded. The gunmen and grenade throwers shouted the all too familiar jihadist murderous slogan, “Allahu Akbar!” meaning “Allah is greater” in Arabic.

H.R. 4038, the American Security Against Foreign Enemies (SAFE Act) passed 289-137 — just two days after it was introduced. The bill, which was taken up on the heels of this revelation, now moves to the senate.

Sixty percent (60%) of ‘Likely U.S. Voters’ oppose the settling of Syrian refugees in the state where they live, according to this latest Rasmussen Reports national survey. Just 28% favor their state taking in these unable to be sufficiently vetted Muslim “refugees.”

Seventy-seven percent (77%) of voters are now concerned that giving thousands of Syrians asylum poses a national security risk to the United States, with 52% who are ‘Very Concerned.’ 

It’s a good bet political extremist and once vocal open-borders proponent Kyrsten Sinema has more than a passing interest in these numbers. Her retooled political future could be determined by them.

Terror in Paris: “We are from ISIS”

November 13, 2015

Following multiple, coordinated jihadi attacks throughout Paris, French government declares full State of Emergency, closes nation’s borders

We provide this link to Fox News, which appears to be updating its reports on the carnage in Paris. Latest indications are that scores people have been slaughtered in multiple, coordinated explosive attacks across the city. Approximately 160 concert goers reportedly have been executed.

French news sources confirm the Muslim jihadists carrying out the attack shouted, “This is for Syria” and the signature jihadist cry of “Allahu Akbar!” meaning Allah is greater.

In memory of the victims of tonight’s attack, the Eiffel Tower — the renown symbol of light in the City of Light — has gone dark.

Flake, Hughes, dog deaths case back to Grand Jury?

November 13, 2015

With the weather cooling to the point of making Arizonans remember why we’re grateful to live here, most of us prefer not to dredge up recollections of the merciless summer heat in the Valley.

But the sweltering 106 degree scorcher of June 20, 2014 is exactly where we need to focus our attention. It is being reported that a Maricopa County Superior Court judge is considering whether another grand jury should take another look at the case of the gruesome heat related deaths of nearly two dozen dogs crammed in a steamy utility room at the Green Acre boarding kennel in Gilbert. County Attorney Bill Montgomery sat on this case for an unconscionably long time.

If a new indictment is issued against vacationing kennel owners Todd and MaLeisa Hughes, what about the actual caretakers Logan and Austin Flake who were entrusted with running the facility and tending the family pets left in their care while Logan’s parents were in Florida?

The foursome was indicted October 16, 2014. From there, a scorecard is needed to keep up with who was charged and who was dropped.

Then as a grandiose 2014 Christmas Eve gesture, Montgomery dropped charges of animal cruelty against all four defendants, leaving a single fraud charge against the Hughes.

A Maricopa County Grand Jury reinstated charges against the Hughes May 6. The Flakes were mysteriously excluded. Politics abounds. Did we mention Austin Flake is the son of Sen. Jeff Flake?

When they returned from their vacation, Todd Hughes initially told the pet owners their dogs had all run away.  Later he and his wife MaLeisa claimed the deaths were the result of an accident when a dog chewed through an air-conditioning electrical cord, disabling the unit. The dogs died agonizing deaths, suffocating in the small room where they were left overnight without cooling, food or water. When the dead and dying dogs were discovered the following morning, the Flakes did not call for veterinary assistance, opting instead to hose down the dogs and then callously pile their carcasses in a shed.

The indictments caused Brigham Young University to expel Austin Flake, which allowed him to recast himself and his wife Logan as victims and sue the taxpayers of Maricopa County for $8 million dollars. If this obscene settlement is awarded, it will ease the reentry into the single world for the now divorcing Jr. Flakes. 

Black Lives Matter myth: Radicals condone violence

October 24, 2015

Black Lives Matter anarchists have no problem crashing meetings and brazenly disrupting dialogues to get their skewed message out. They took over the leftist Netroots Nation gathering in Phoenix in July, and demanded that Democrat presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley each acknowledge that only “Black Lives,” not “All Lives” matter. O’Malley was booed for making such a grand faux pas and apologized. 

Such weak acquiesce from the left only emboldens these subversive provocateurs. Within 48 hours of NYC police officer Randolph Holder, 33, being shot and killed Thursday by a bullet to his forehead, they were marching through the streets, chanting, “It is right to rebel, NYPD go to hell!” Both the officer and the murderer are black. This obscenity follows an earlier mantra, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” inciting violence against officers. Yet the hypocrites who have declared open warfare on police have no trouble accepting police protection for their demonstrations.

Last week in California, the group’s obstructive thugs grabbed the microphone from Los Angeles’ Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti, forcing him out of a Town Hall meeting with constituents. Outside, he was surrounded by a screaming mob, some of whom climbed on the Mayor’s car and stomped on the hood. No one was arrested.

The increasingly rabid activists most often target easily coerced white Democrats, who quickly fall in line.

The group’s issues are what they refer to as police brutality resulting in deaths of young black males and the need to lower incarceration rates. What is left unsaid is that the high death rates are most often gang related and the result of black-on-black gun violence.  Incarceration occurs, not in a vacuum, but when there is a conviction for criminal activity.

Now these radicals have the ear of Barack Obama, who struggles without his trusty teleprompter to justify their indefensible actions, (video) calling it a “legitimate issue we have to address and take seriously,” gratuitously throwing in the “tough job the police have.”

As Daniel Greenfield concludes in his well documented FrontPage mag report, “For black lives to really matter, black violence has to matter.”

Today we ask, where are the protests regarding this tragedy? Or this one that occurred in Tempe just days ago? Young black lives were put in grave danger or lost forever by parents who should provide the safest haven for their defenseless children. Black Lives Matter forgot about them.

Obama: Criminal justice system “remains unfair”

October 19, 2015

Slick talk on crime skips over facts

In his weekly address to the nation over the weekend, Barack Obama said that much of the American criminal justice system is unfair and that what he referred to as “underfunded schools” in the United States are a conduit to overcrowded prisons.

According to the selfless community organizer now sitting in the Oval Office,  criminal acts have nothing to do with incarceration rates. He tells us “The Department of Justice has gotten ‘Smart on Crime,’ refocusing efforts on the worst offenders, and pursuing mandatory minimum sentences less frequently.” 

“But over the last few decades, we’ve also locked up more non-violent offenders than ever before, for longer than ever before.  That’s the real reason our prison population is so high,” he claims.

The rioting mobs in Ferguson, Missouri, as a single example, who loot and destroy businesses, throw bricks at police, smash police cars and set their own town on fire to express their displeasure, apparently fall into the “non-violent offenders” category. They thought they could get away with their savagery and they did.

Missing from Obama’s video address are the astronomical numbers of fatherless homes and young uneducated mothers who breed not only large families but generational poverty and reliance on public benefits.

Former Florida Congressman Allen West, a black conservative Republican, tells the truth about the cities that foment crime — among them, Atlanta, Baltimore, Detroit, New York City and Washington, DC — are all run by Democrats.

Quoting from this John Nolte piece posted on Breitbart, Allen West says Nolte was spot on. “This is not about an American failure, it is about a Democrat failure. As far as the good people of Baltimore trapped by the terrible voting of your fellow citizens, I suggest you buy more guns until you can move to a city not run by those who see rioting as part of the Master Plan.

Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam rally issues threats

October 11, 2015

Rallying cry: “Justice or Else”

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March, Nation of Islam organizer Louis Farrakhan themed Saturday’s march “Justice or Else.” 

What exactly does that threat mean?

In 1995 when the first march took place, Farrakhan won some praise for exhorting black men to take responsibility for improving themselves, their families and communities. But the underlying theme was blaming what he called “white supremacy” for “suffering in the black community.”

Farrakhan, now 82, is still a notorious race baiter and hate monger. He took up that same mantel yesterday on the National Mall in DC, denouncing what he referred to as the “white establishment,” saying, “Moses was not an integrationist and neither are we. Let me be clear. America has no future for you or for me. She can’t make a future for herself, much less a future for us.”

He spoke of passing the torch to the younger generation, specifically mentioning “Black Lives Matter,” as the “future leadership.”

“These are not just young people who happened to wake up one morning. Ferguson ignited it all,” he said. “So to all the brothers and sisters from Ferguson who laid in the streets, all the brothers and sisters from Ferguson who challenged the tanks, we are honored that you have come to represent our struggle and our demands.”

Farrakhan neglected to mention the looting and destruction of small, family owned businesses or the deception of the “Hands up, don’t shoot” mantra.  He neglected to mention marchers vilifying police as they shouted, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon.”  He didn’t talk about the tragedy of black-on-black murders making cities like Chicago resemble war zones. Missing from his racist diatribe was the fact that astronomical black out-of-wedlock births contribute to poverty, crime and high drop-out rates which sustain the terrible cycle. He was silent on the shouting down and silencing of a Democrat presidential candidate who was insensitive enough to say, “All Lives Matter,” and later apologized for his transgression.

America has twice elected a black president and Dr. Ben Carson, a black Republican neurosurgeon who rose up from the depths of poverty is riding high among white voters in the 2016 presidential polls.

Yet civil rights activist Benjamin Chavis, said, “There’s too much injustice, too much inequality, too much mass incarceration, too many situations in our community that need addressing, and that’s why we’re here today.”

Addressing problems needs to take place within black communities. Issuing threats and blaming others will not solve the systemic woes that keep the vicious cycle going. Involved parents, fathers in the home, stressing faith and the need for education will accomplish more than blaming and threatening. But reaching such goals is a lot tougher than spewing ill-placed vitriol.

Christians selected for death at Oregon college

October 2, 2015

“I will not name the shooter. I will not give him the credit he probably sought with this horrific and cowardly act.”        — Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin  discussing the massacre

In an act of anti-religious terrorism, a gunman opened fire Thursday morning at Umpqua Community College in the rural community of Roseburg Oregon. An English professor and 8 students were killed and 7 others were wounded, with three listed in critical condition.

According to a on-scene account, “The shooter was lining people up and asking if they were Christian. If they said yes, then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs.”

The local newspaper in the town of under 25,000 carries this report.

Barack Obama hopped on the terrorist assault to advocate for “common sense” gun laws. He neglected to add that this carnage took place on such a gun-free campus that even the single security guard was unarmed.

Like many blue states under Democrat control, Oregon recently tightened its gun regulations, leaving people less able to defend themselves. Not only are the top officers Democrats, but the party controls the state House and Senate.

The violence perpetrated by a craven terrorist should not constrain our Constitutional rights.  In 2013, Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin, a strong Second Amendment advocate, wrote this letter to Vice President Joe Biden: (Click letter to enlarge)
