U.S. invasion exposed by British press

April 18, 2015

The Daily Mail reveals shocking images from cameras on the Texas-Mexico border capturing a steady stream of illegal aliens sneaking into the United States with packages of drugs and guns. Among the included videos is one showing a sophisticated undercover drug tunnel hidden in a closet.

Steven McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety is quoted in the article saying, “Every day, sheriff’s deputies, police officers, Border Patrol agents and state law enforcement officers in the Texas border region risk their lives to protect Texas and the entire nation from Mexican cartels and transnational crime.”

Arizona, also a border state, endures the same criminal activity.

Take time to enlighten yourself. Our gratitude to the U.K’s Daily Mail for providing more in-depth coverage of the indefensible situation than our local press, which continually pushes for amnesty and an array of taxpayer-funded perks for illegals. 

The Daily Mail assess the situation correctly with these words: “The startling images have been revealed as President Obama continues to fight to push through an executive order to shield illegal immigrants from deportation.” 

Don’t look for such candor to be found in the pages of the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) newspaper.


Brnovich flies under radar as he caves on illegal enforcement

April 6, 2015

It’s all about $aving taxpayer dollar$, doncha know?

Unless you’re an eagle-eyed reader, you might have missed the latest news from Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich. It was tucked away and hugging the bottom of Page 3 in a travelogue sounding section called “Around Arizona.”.

The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) couldn’t be more gleeful to report that Brnovich filed a motion on Friday asking a U.S. District Court to dismiss the Ninth U. S. Circuit appeal of a policy charging illegal aliens as co-conspirators with their well-paid coyote transporters as they smuggle themselves into Arizona.  By pulling the appeal, Brnovich will let stand an injunction against enforcing the statute.

In a statement to the newspaper, Brnovich says he is “committed to defending Arizona from federal overreach and enforcing our immigration laws.” Then comes the “but,” which in legalese morphs into “however.”

“However, I also have an obligation to be responsible with taxpayer dollars and defend the state where we are most likely to prevail. That is why I filed for the dismissal of the state’s legal challenge to the human-smuggling portion of SB 1070 today.”

Karen Tumlin, a lawyer with the far-leftist, pro-illegal invasion National Immigration Law Center in California, cheered, “The chapter of the smuggling law is now officially over.” But she noted that litigation continues on others, including the “Show me your papers” statute that requires law-enforcement officials to inquire about the citizenship of people they stop and statutes regarding day laborers and impounding the vehicles of people harboring illegal immigrants. “This is a sign that the state may move away from this litigation,” Tumlin hopefully added.

In an astonishing double standard, The Republic evidenced no reluctance to use scare tactics in editorials and news reports including declaring citizens would be unable to board an airplane without an intrusive national ID card as it promoted legislation on a “Show me your papers” law for American citizens.


Are you Muslim or Christian? Religion of Peace update

April 2, 2015

Christians at morning prayer targeted by killers shouting “Allahu Akbar” — “God is great” in Arabic

As heavily armed masked gunmen mercilessly slaughtered at least 15 university students at Garissa University College, seriously injuring 60 others, a single question was on their lips.

The assassins, who identified themselves as (al-Qaeda-linked) al-Shabab, ran from dorm room to dorm room shouting: “Are you Muslim or Christian?” Christians were mowed down.

The Kenyan campus has six dorms and approximately 900 students. Hundreds are reportedly still unaccounted for.

Read more in the UK’s Daily Mail.  Al Jazeera’s English version, which refers to itself as a “trusted and respected” news source, mysteriously omits the crucial question that was asked of the students —- determining who lived and who died.


Gov. Ducey fearing AZ Ferguson throws police under bus

March 31, 2015

Fear of mob rule causes governor to veto protective measure

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey vetoed legislation Monday aimed at protecting police officers and their families from harassment or worse. Senate Bill 1445, was a reasonable piece of legislation designed to delay law enforcement agencies from releasing the names of officers involved in serious or fatal shootings for 60 days as the investigation into the case proceeded.

Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson was subjected to death threats and forced into hiding, ultimately resigning from the police force following his acquittal on charges relating to the shooting of Michael Brown. The small town became a hotbed of prolonged violent protests based on the “Hands up, don’t shoot” myth.

Critics of the delay, referred to the measure as “hiding” the officers identities, include the dynamic duo of the  Arizona Republic and the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona, which both sent letters to the governor requesting his veto of the measure. This is the editorial view from the hard-left New York Times, which also urged a veto.

Ducey complied, folding like a cheap suit.

The bill allowed the officer’s name to be released if he or she was arrested or formally charged, or gave consent. Supporters of the law contended it would protect officers without compromising the public’s right to know the facts of a case, noting that information about the officer, including any disciplinary record, would, in fact, be released.

The legislation enjoyed bi-partisan support, passing the House by a vote of 44 – 12 and the Senate 23 – 6.

Primary and co-sponsors of the bill can be viewed here. They deserve our thanks. Ducey? He needs to be reminded which side law enforcement is on. They put their lives on the line each and every day to protect the people of Arizona.

Including Doug Ducey.


Police shooter in custody — Obama, Holder fanned flames

March 16, 2015

Police in St. Louis have confirmed that the man who shot two police officers in the early morning hours Thursday is in custody.

A known Ferguson, Missouri police protestor, Jeffrey Williams, 20, is reportedly charged with two counts of first-degree assault, firing a weapon from a vehicle, and two counts of armed criminal action. The shootings took place outside the police department in the wake of the resignation of the city’s police chief.

Although Williams admits firing the shots that struck the officers, his claim that he didn’t intend to shoot them verges on implausible. At the time of the shooting, the young black parolee was the subject of an arrest warrant for failing to meet with his parole officer in connection with a previous conviction of receiving stolen property.

Although the Justice Department claims that Ferguson police have been  too aggressive in their interaction with black residents, a credible case could be made that police weren’t vigorous enough. If Williams had been tracked down and arrested pursuant to the outstanding warrant, chances are he would not have been on the streets and able to shoot the officers.

On Friday we posted “Chaos in Ferguson fueled by Obama, Holder.” In it, we noted Attorney General Holder called the gunman “a damn punk” who was “trying to sow discord in an area that was trying to get its act together, trying to bring together a community that had been fractured for too long.”

But Holder’s Justice Department also released a separate report asserting that racial profiling was at play in the city police force, and the municipal court system was driven by profit on the backs of the town’s predominantly low-income black residents. 

As SRAZ commenter Frankly Speaking noted, Barack Obama appeared on comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s show talking out of both sides of his mouth after the police officers were shot: “What had been happening in Ferguson was oppressive and objectionable and was worthy of protest.” And “whoever fired those shots shouldn’t detract from the issue. They’re criminals. They need to be arrested.” Read his words carefully.

Obama skillfully sticks to the narrative alluding that the protestors had every right to burn down stores and overturn police cars, characterizing any authority as something that needs to be assaulted and destroyed. This is the same president who characterized shooting victims Trayvon Martin as his “son” and robber Michael Brown as a “gentle giant.”

Kevin Jackson of Blacksphere reports Brown’s mother posted these vile comments on her Facebook page after the police shooting.

The racial divide in our country has worsened under the nation’s first half-black president.


Kids behaving badly? Study offers explanation: You must be an illegal

March 15, 2015

New study explains insecurities, criminal behavior in children of illegals

Nancy Landale is not exactly a name resonating off lips in Arizona, but the results of her latest study delving into the “special insecurities” and their links to “behavioral problems” of children of illegal aliens recently merited a front page report titled, “Fear of having a parent deported may increase risk of behavior issues.“ 

Daniel Gonzalez, who coincidently covers immigration and minority communities at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic), authored the news article. He calls Landale’s study, which provides justification for higher risks of behavior issues compared with children of legal immigrants and U.S. citizens, “groundbreaking.”

Prof. Landale’s research at Penn State focuses on family patterns and health outcomes of racial and ethnic minorities in the United States. She’s been at this for years, as her Curriculum Vitae attests —- currently investigating the health and development of Mexican children of illegals, with an emphasis on links between illegal immigration and assimilation processes, family contexts and multiple dimensions of health. These reports don’t come cheap. They are underwritten by massive research grants. As an example, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development:  “Mexican Children of Immigrants Program Project.” (2009-2016) Total Direct Costs: $3,851,858. Total Costs: $5,158,193.

The funding for these absurd studies ultimately comes out of our pockets. But even in Pennsylvania Nancy is feeling the extra pinch for education, health care, and incarceration —- costs that have obviously increased since this report detailing the $728 million yearly burden to native-born Pennsylvania taxpayers was released in 2009.

Previous generations of legal immigrants who came to America via Ellis Island would have been appalled to have little Giuseppe, Sean, Helmut, Abraham, Miklos or Casimir do less than their best in school and certainly would not have given them cover for chronic bad behavior or criminality. That change in attitude might be the reason the legal immigrants succeeded. They knew America provided opportunity and they expected their children to take advantage of the rare gifts they were being given. The families worked hard, educated their children and enthusiastically assimilated into Americans.

The $113 billion annual drain said to be the high cost of illegal immigration is also substantially higher since this 2010 report (revised in 2011),The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers.”

Chaos in Ferguson fueled by Obama, Holder

March 13, 2015

First black President and U.S. AG have incited, escalated racial tensions

By now we are all too aware of the racial unrest based in elevating a black street thug named Michael Brown into a choir boy amid chants of “Hand’s up, don’t shoot!”  —- words he never uttered. This past August, Brown was shot by Darren Wilson, a white police officer following a convenience store robbery.

In the aftermath, bedlam prevailed followed by days and nights of protests and threats. Brown’s step-father was videotaped calling for further violence, screaming, “Let’s burn this bitch down!“ referring to the town of Ferguson, Missouri. Barack Obama involved U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and sent White House emissaries to the 18-year-old’s funeral.

Looting, fires and pandemonium in cities across U.S. escalated in November after a county grand jury declined to prosecute Wilson. DOJ investigators concurred with that finding in a report released March 4.

The double standard, reported by the Washington Times, became ever more apparent as unarmed white 20-year-old Dillon Taylor was killed by a black police officer in Utah, with no White House representatives at his funeral and no federal probe underway.

Fast forward to Thursday. Two police officers were ambushed and shot —- one in the face, another in the shoulder,  outside the Ferguson police station —-  by a yet to be apprehended gunman, part of the mob further incited by the fact that the officer involved in Brown’s shooting was not charged. He has since left the police force.

Obama used Twitter to send his prayers to the officers and to denounce violence against police. “Path to justice is one all of us must travel together,” Obama wrote, not taxing his 114 character count.

Attorney General Holder called the gunman “a damn punk” who was “trying to sow discord in an area that was trying to get its act together, trying to bring together a community that had been fractured for too long.”

But Holder’s Justice Department also released a separate report asserting that racial profiling was at play in the city police force, and the municipal court system was driven by profit on the backs of the town’s predominantly low-income black residents. 

In the wake of the report, the police chief resigned on Wednesday. His was the sixth departure in the week since the release of the DOJ’s report. Ferguson’s court clerk was fired and the municipal judge, two police officers and the city manager willingly left their jobs.

Everyone in a position of authority ought to walk, and let the residents of Ferguson figure it out.
