Illegals’ status enhanced by ability to expand Dem voter bloc

June 16, 2018

Though the left intentionally misuses the words, illegal aliens are not “immigrants” or “migrants.” Immigrants enter the U.S. legally, using our generous system that takes in over a million yearly. Migrants are the swallows that come to Capistrano each March 19, but even they return home to Argentina.

The political rhetoric surrounding separating children from their illegal invader parents has escalated past a fevered pitch. A USA Today front page photo showing a father asking, in Spanish, of course, “Why are you taking my boy?” is a guaranteed heartstrings tugger. The report details the man’s long journey from Honduras to Texas with his 5-year-old son in tow. He left his wife and other children back home. The boy was supposed to be insurance.

Open border advocates and legal advisers have been counseling illegals breaching our border to bring their children and coaching them on the “magic words” to memorize enabling them to fall within the statute of credible fear that will put them on the asylum track, according to border officials.  Mostly uneducated Central Americans from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, trekking through Mexico, but not stopping there, continue to flood the U.S. Once here they send back $billions of U.S. dollars in remittances to their homelands.

The mainstream media focus is on the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policies, although Newsweek reminds readers that Barack Obama held more than double the number of children in shelters compared to the Trump White House.

Families are routinely separated in the criminal justice system when adults break the law. It’s known as consequences for unlawful actions. If you rob a bank, you’ll be guaranteed to be separated from your kids, regardless of your country of origin. Taking a preschooler along on the heist will not ensure release from police custody. If anything, putting a youngster in harm’s way will enhance the charges.

A question to ponder: Would the throngs of immigration lawyers and illegal advocates be as committed to providing advice, aid and comfort, if they thought  the majority of these “refugees” would register as Republicans?

This is syndicated columnist Ann Coulter’s reasonable twitter take:

@AnnCoulter

No, Chuck Schumer, I do not want to see illegals separated from their children.

I want to see them separated from our country.

GOP establishment back to pushing amnesty deal

June 14, 2018

The lyin’ Ryan Express delivers amnesty cargo

President Trump was non-equivocal when he issued this Immigration Principles and Policies letter to House and Senate Leaders on October 8. 2017.

He ended up acquiescing on major portions of his policy when signing the omnibus spending bill after being steamrolled by the GOP establishment led by House Speaker Paul Ryan, who is retiring at the end of this term. Like Arizona senators McCain and Flake, Republicrat Ryan has long been bonded to amnesty for illegal aliens, in all of its incarnations, including chain migration. There is not an iota of difference between the Republican posers and the most liberal Democrats.

The omnibus excluded construction of Trump’s wall, expanded “Catch and Release” for illegals, and did not fund 1,000 new deportation agents as the president requested. It was released, passed by Congress, and rushed to Trump’s desk within days. 

In March, when faced with the no-wall omnibus, an irate Trump  threatened to veto the $1.3 trillion dollar bill, signing it just hours ahead of a deadline to avert a midnight government shutdown and keep military funding.

“There are a lot of things I’m unhappy about in this bill,” he said at the time. (video). “I say to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again.”

Here we are in June 2018, and the identical strategy is being used to rush Trump into an immigration deal sure to demoralizes his populist base, aids Chamber of Commerce illegal labor profiteers, and breaths new life into his opponents preceding the crucial midterm congressional elections.

The duplicitous Ryan calls for passage of the amnesty bill next week, though it has not been completed or released yet.  “So This is Ryan acting like [Rep. Nancy] Pelosi: “Vote first, read later,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).

Citing a Harvard-Harris poll, John Binder, writing for Breitbart News, noted nearly 2 out of 3 Republican voters say reducing overall immigration to the U.S. is more important than tax cuts or repealing and replacing Obamacare. Only job creation led the immigration issue.

The Alien Incarceration Report jointly released June 6, 2018 by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, reveals the shocking rate of criminality among illegals incarcerated in the Bureau of Prisons. The numbers are on page 1 under Summary of Findings.

Do yourself a favor and read Ann Coulter’s most recent take on this debacle in the making titled,Meanwhile, ten miles from the White House…

In Coulteresque style, she minces no words.


School shootings: Who’s to blame?

May 19, 2018

Another school shooting has taken the lives of what is being reported as 9 students and a teacher‘s aide. Twelve others were wounded by the 17-year-old murderer, This time the massacre was in Santa Fe Texas, a small town of approximately 80,000 residents south of Houston.

The Houston Chronicle described the assassin with these words: “He posted a photo on his Facebook page of a “born to kill” T-shirt and wrote in a journal about shooting people and committing suicide. His Facebook cover photo comes from an album called “Dangerous Days” by a dystopian cyberpunk band called Pertubator with a track that took on a haunting quality before 8 a.m. on Friday morning: “Humans Are Such Easy Prey”

The newspaper wrote, “The signs of dark, violent fantasies were ubiquitous in (the killer’s) social persona and private ramblings.”

Like the 1999 Columbine High School killers, he had a penchant for wearing a trench coat. Presenting a dichotomy of personalities, he had been an honor roll student, played on the high school football team and expressed a wholesome desire to join the Marines.

Seventeen were killed at a Parkland, Florida high school just three months ago on Valentine’s Day. This list of school shootings goes back to 1990.

The immediate reaction by many on the left is to go after guns — confiscate and destroy them. Eradicate the Second Amendment as outdated.  Blame the NRA. Then comes the talk of mandatory mental health evaluations and permitting involuntary commitments.

Lost in the mix is the undeniable fact that violence, passing as entertainment,  has for far too long, permeated our society.  Music lyrics were once taken on by Tipper Gore, then-wife of Sen. Al Gore. She testified before a senate panel in 1985, saying, “…in virtually every medium, the communications industry offers increasingly explicit images of sex and violence to younger and younger children. In the course of my work, I’ve encountered a degree of callousness toward children that I never imagined existed. No one asks what is in the product or its effect on kids, only how well it will sell.”

Her efforts to expose the encroachment were vociferously fought by the music industry. In 1985, the graphic violence was mild compared to today. According to Quora, the Internet “became mainstream among researchers by 1989, among Silicon Valley movers and shakers by mid 1995, and by most US households by 2001.”

In 2018, many children are isolated, unsupervised and fatherless. The Internet provides them with explicit images and social media sites to “express themselves.”  Their entertainment is raw and often violent.  Fewer families than ever before are involved in a faith-based community. Values are no longer taught. Parents increasingly put their own pursuits ahead of their children. These are the areas that beg for attention, since they create the personalities that revel in violence.

Families owned firearms throughout our history and mass shootings were not perpetrated at schools by adolescents. The cause is too uncomfortable to address, but it’s time to remind parents that their children are their primary responsibility. Economic pressure must be applied to the entertainment and music industries. The NRA, which protects freedom, is not the problem.


Republicrats align with Dems on amnesty bills

May 16, 2018

Invaders have unlikely friends in high places

While they think that Americans aren’t paying attention, eighteen Republican members of congress have signed a “discharge petition” in an effort to bring numerous liberal immigration bills to the floor for a vote. In doing so, they are intentionally defying President Trump and House leadership, while weakening GOP unity and demoralizing the base of GOP voters prior to the upcoming midterm elections.

Their motivation remains murky.

One of the bills in the package will grant full amnesty to those given DACA status by Barack Obama, even as he repeatedly stated he was legally unable to force such actions. 

The outrageous effort is being shepherded by Reps. Carlos Curbelo (FL) and Jeff Denham (CA). Charlie Dent (PA), will have his signature count despite the fact he resigned from Congress this month. View the complete list of signers of H.Res. 774 – “Providing for consideration of the bill (H.R. 4760) to amend the immigration laws and the homeland security laws, and for other purposes,” Yes. That’s the brassy and vague title. Good luck trying to find the actual text.

The discharge petition process is normally used by the minority party to force votes the majority won’t allow, making it all the more bizarre that Republicans who still hold the majority are pushing this legislation in tandem with the most liberal Democrats.

Donald Trump won the GOP nomination over 16 other Republican primary challengers — based in large measure on his commitment to securing our border and building a wall. This is clearly what the majority of American citizens want.

The 7th District Dent represented is currently a top Democrat target, especially after it became more competitive under the new congressional map imposed by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The court threw out the old map in January, ruling it was an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander. This is their 138-page opinion. The justices are elected on partisan ballots and serve ten-year terms. Only two of the seven justices — Chief Justice Thomas G. Saylor and Associate Justice Sallie Updyke Munday — are Republicans.

The Sanctuary State of California has become Ground Zero for illegal aliens. They are welcomed  by Gov. Jerry Brown, though the citizens have had their fill.  A recent poll shows a majority of Californians want more deportations as their state devolves into what author Victor Davis Hanson so aptly named “Mexifornia,” in his visionary 2003 book,

In 2007 writing for City Journal, Hanson wrote this bleak assessment, “Mexifornia, Five Years Later.” Do yourself a favor and read it.  We have just been warned by the organizers of the last “caravan” of illiterate and unskilled Central Americans, who blatantly disrespect the United States, that they are replicating their last invasion effort, aided and abetted by Mexico, which allowed them safe passage on their way to the United States.

The leftwing local newspaper softly refers to the invaders asmigrants” and “asylum-seekers.


Scottsdale schools ex-CFO could’ve used a 20% raise, too

May 15, 2018

Laura Smith indicted on 11 felony charges of fraud, conflicts of interest

It looks like there’s big trouble in the future for Laura Smith, Scottsdale Unified School District’s former chief financial officer. She faces 11 felony charges — two involving fraud and nine stemming from conflicts of interest — tied to a consulting company she previously co-owned and ran, according to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office.

A grand jury indicted Laura Smith on May 8. She is accused of facilitating the district’s employment of Professional Group Public Consulting, a Mesa-based company according to Maricopa County Superior Court documents.

Smith co-owned the consulting firm when she was hired as the district’s CFO in early 2017. Her sister, Caroline Brackley, then took over running the company. Smith failed to disclose the relationship and resigned in January after having been put on administrative leave due to an ongoing conflict of interest investigation.

In its well researched report, The Arizona Daily Independent cites the fact that Laura Smith was a member of the Arizona Association of School Business Officials whose Code of Ethics states, in part, that members should, “Avoid conflict of interest situations by not conducting business with a company or firm in which the official or any member of the official’s family has a vested interest.”

Read the 11 count indictment issued by the AZ Attorney General’s Office charging Smith.

With her yen for appropriated cash and Gov. Doug Ducey’s ability to magically produce $ millions out of thin air “without raising taxes,“ it seems there could have been a better deal in the works for this beleaguered school deceiver.


French Inaction on known terror suspects brings more death

May 14, 2018

Islamic terrorism returns to France, knife, not gun used

The NRA has become a convenient whipping boy for the left, in instances where mass murder is committed with a gun. But increasingly, terrorist acts are carried out by vehicles being used as weapons, deliberately plowing into crowds. Knife attacks are becoming more frequent here and in Western Europe. The Boston Marathon carnage was carried out by two brothers, whose parents had come to the United States seeking political asylum. They used pressure cookers as explosives, but still the NRA takes the brunt of the blame.

France suffered another bloody attack on Saturday. The assailant, who was shot and killed by police, has been identified as Khamzat Azimov, 21, a native of Chechnya, who  became a French citizen in 2010. Witnesses reported Azimov repeatedly yelled, “Allahu akhbar” during the Paris attack. The French press reported that “a video emerged Sunday online purporting to show the attacker swearing allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.”

Not long after the rampage that killed one and seriously injured four others in a busy tourist area, the Islamic State took responsibility for the carnage.

France has a state security anti-terrorism watch list on which this most recent knife wielder has appeared since 2016 — but the attacker was neither detained nor deported. This was the second deadly attack in two months by a person flagged on the watch list. More than 230 people In France have been killed by ISIS-inspired jihadists in the past three years.

Without acknowledging the lack of follow-up on the collected data, French government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said, “It is, once again, a way of life, our way of life, which has come under a cowardly attack.”

News accounts defended the government’s defenseless actions referring to renewed calls for enforcement as originating from “the conservative opposition.”

Sound familiar?

The leader of France’s largest opposition party renewed his call on President Emmanuel Macron to detain “the most dangerous individuals” on the watch list and expel all foreigners listed on it. “There is no longer room, Mr. President, for this blind inaction which has lasted too long,” Laurent Wauquiez of the conservatives Les Republicains said in a statement.

“What use can this file be if we don’t use it to ensure that these time bombs cannot do any harm on French soil?” National Front leader Marine Le Pen wrote on Twitter.

But Griveaux contended: “Unfortunately, there is no way of stopping this sort of incident from happening.” The security watch list was a key tool for police and intelligence services, he said, adding that “experts were opposed to using it as a basis for roundups or deportations.”

Paris is nearly 4,000 miles from Washington, D.C. though the same foolish arguments leave citizens at risk.


Pres. Trump energizes NRA patriots in Dallas

May 5, 2018

President reminds supporters,’We have to win the midterms’

As over 80,000 NRA supporters filled the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas on Friday, it was clear Second Amendment advocates are not going to passively allow the left to blame legal gun owners for the aberrant behavior of maniacal mass murderers.

VIP packages quickly sold out prior to the beginning of the May 3 – 6 event.

Keynote addresses at the 147th annual meeting are being delivered by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, state Attorney General Ken Paxton and Texas’ Gov. Greg Abbott, clearly indicating the support the Second Amendment protection agency enjoys among patriotic, law abiding gun owners.

The event also has a decidedly political aspect, rallying NRA members and their supporters to get involved in the upcoming elections and ensure their voice is heard.

VP Pence rallied the crowd by telling them, “You have two friends in the White House. President Donald Trump and I both stand without apology for the Second Amendment and in this administration the right of the people to keep and bear arms will not be infringed,” Pence told the cheering crowd. “Thank you for all you do to defend liberty, and thank you for electing a president and Congress that are making America great again.”

President Trump lobbed a direct hit in rebutting those promoting Second Amendment restrictions as he pointed to a hospital in London, a city where firearms are illegal, but explosive violence has become commonplace as criminals use knives to inflict carnage. “There’s blood all over the floors of this hospital,” he said, repeating the word, “knives” three times. London has seen a 7-year high crime rate with 55 murders since January, substantiated by the U. K.’s Daily Mail. Recently, six teenagers were stabbed within 90 minutes of each other in a night of knife butchery across London.

Gov. Greg Abbott, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, and Attorney General Ken Paxton all running for reelection in Texas, received Trump’s endorsement. He also gave a double endorsement in Arizona’s U.S. Senate race, endorsing both conservative Dr. Kelli Ward and former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, an early Trump supporter.

The President reiterated his support for armed school security officials and ending gun-free zones. “Ninety-eight percent of mass public shootings have occurred in places where guns are banned,” Trump said. “There’s no sign more inviting to a mass killer than a sign that declares, `This school is a gun-free zone.’”

Join other patriotic NRA members who understand the unique importance of our Second Amendment, which our Founders intentionally placed immediately following our First Amendment protections of freedom of speech and assembly. With these protections under assault by the left, they matter now, more than ever.
