Illegal advocates demand cash, firing of Motel 6 employees

September 16, 2017

Some Motel 6 locations in the Valley have been accused of cooperating with local law enforcement, turning in the names of guests whose ID given to the desk clerk — such as Mexican voter ID cards or driver’s license — appears to indicate they are here illegally.

As sure as day follows night, the protests begin. The pro-amnesty, open border newspaper Periódico de la República — alternatively known as the Arizona Republic,  headlined, “Phoenix leaders demand Motel 6 fire employees who gave customer names to ICE.”

Those “leaders,” quickly assembled Friday to march and demand a boycott of all Motel 6 locations. They said the boycott should continue until the employees they suspect of involvement are fired. What they are accused of doing is not illegal. The shortsighted “activists” aren’t taking into consideration that a boycott would displace Hispanic maids and laborers employed by the motels.

Their actions bring to mind the economic boycott of the entire state of Arizona called for in 2010 by radical leftist AZ CD-3 U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva  (his background included under link) as a protest against SB 1070. Using the signature Alinskyite tactics of the community organizer he once was, the law had to be fought at “a political, legal and economic level,” he said. 

Grijalva remained indifferent to the fact that his actions would displace Mexicans who work in the hospitality industries. The cameras were not on them, they were focused on him, just as mics were thrust toward his face to catch his every word. The headiness of the attention captured Grijalva’s ego and unconcerned his Hispanic constituents, in his specially carved out ethnic majority district, would end up in the unemployment line.

And Motel 6? Its corporate management tweeted this conciliatory statementwhich of course, wasn’t good enough since there was no financial payout involved.

Protesters demanded the company must provide monetary compensation to the illegal families whose members faced deportation proceedings.

“We are going to fight back,” said Viri Hernandez, director of the Center for Neighborhood Leadership, a pro-immigrant advocacy group.  (Read that to include the word ‘illegal’ before immigrant) “And we’re going to make sure our economic power is not going to you. So for our community, [sic] clear message: It’s time to boycott Motel 6.”

Pres.Trump disappoints: Kicks DACA can down the road & UPDATE

September 5, 2017

Unenforceable DACA rewards, incentivizes lawbreakers

This morning at 5:04 ET the President tweeted: “Congress, get ready to do your job –DACA!”

Kicking the DACA can to congress is pure folly. The Republican dominated congress couldn’t even repeal Obamacare.

Some background: The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals scheme, (DACA) was put into effect in 2012 by Barack Obama via his left-handed signature on an unconstitutional executive order. (Video of Obama repeatedly stating he was unable to do what he did.) With the stroke of a pen, he erased deportation concerns for an estimated 800,000 so-called “DREAMers,” all of whom merely had to claim they were brought into the United States before age 16 by their illegally invading parents .In order to qualify for this absurd generosity, they must have been age 35 or younger as of June 2012. Since such claims are unverifiable, attempts at enforcement of the program becomes nothing short of an utter mockery of  our legal system. How does the US enforce an ‘honor system’ on dishonest invaders?

DACA’s actual goal was expansion of the Democrat base, rendering the Republican Party a Whig-like political relic.

The bottom line is a sovereign nation ceases to exist if it has no enforceable border and its immigration policy is based on nefarious schemes masquerading as empathy. Offering rewards and incentives to those who disrespect our laws is irrational public policy.

On Saturday, our postSupporting DACA is ultimately suicidal,” outlined objections to this farcical program that rewards illegality.  President Trump was elected, in large measure, by Americans who believed his promise to secure our border, build a fortified fence and not offer incentives to invaders. His get tough on illegal immigration message was as effective and compelling as his economic message in resonating with American voters, propelling him to the front of the line of 17 GOP presidential candidates in 2016.

Conservative commentator Laura Ingraham said it best: “His instincts politically when he ran for president were frankly brilliant. He beat the Bushes, the Obamas, big business, the media,” Ingraham said. “He beat them all, not by moving to the middle on all the issues.”

Mr. President: Decisive action is not always easy, but it must be taken. Your loyal conservative base expects nothing less.

Hate mongering SPLC exists to raise mega $millions, incite violence

September 1, 2017

This past April, Stephan Lemons signed off with his last vile column at the Phoenix New Times tabloid. The hate monger, who amused himself with dreams of dancing on the graves of those with whom he disagreed, was moving on to what only he could regard as greener pastures — the disreputable Southern Poverty Law Center. It’s anything but a benign entity, making it the ideal cesspool for Lemons to wallow in.

Lemons signed off this way: “Sometimes, cutting a jig over the corpses of mean-spirited, race-bating troglodytes — once they’ve passed of natural causes — is the best you get in this life. And I’ll take it.”

He described his new job with these words: “I’m leaving due to an offer from another outlet, as the grown-ups say, an organization that sues the pants off racists and gives their property to minorities.”

In this era of reveling in victimization and celebrating diversity rather than national unity, the Daily Caller reports the SPLC’s map of “Confederate monuments” resembles the group’s “hate map” that has repeatedly smeared conservative organizations as “hate groups” and inspired domestic terrorist Floyd Lee Corkins to shoot up the conservative Family Research Center in 2012. This is a brief cut from the FBI interrogation footage of Corkins saying he was motivated by SPLC‘s “hate map,“ compiled by the hate group Stephen Lemons couldn’t wait to join.

To get an idea of the outrageous views held by this radical group, The Washington Times reported the group placed 2016 presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson on its Extremist Watch List for his views against same-sex marriage. The brilliant neurosurgeon was selected by President Trump to serve as the secretary of the U.S. Department of housing and Urban Development.

Now the SPLC is focused on removing monuments, renaming schools, roads, towns and even has the names of military bases in its sights for annihilation.. The loony left has already torched and toppled Abraham Lincoln the first Republican president, obviously not taught he freed the slaves.  Though it was the Democrat Party that fought to keep slavery, the political left escapes SPLC’s wrath.

This exposé (video) of the leftist, supposedly “anti-hate” organization — the Southern Poverty Law Center — features William F. Jasper, Senior Editor of The New American news magazine who does a fine job of identifying the SPLC.

Watch as Tucker Carlson interviews Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council about SPLC, the largest hate group in America. How much more reckless hate-baiting will it take before CNN and leftist celebrities stop taking this demonic colossus seriously?

Southern Poverty Law Center is a mega-fundraising organization with most of their $100’s of millions held in off shore accounts. The Federalist exposes the tactics in 12 ways the Southern Poverty Law Center is a scam to profit from Hate-Mongering.

 

 


Housing crisis or selfish lack of common sense?

August 21, 2017

Tale of woe doesn’t generate sympathy

The daily newspaper runs a front page article about ‘the new housing crisis,’ headlined, “A family’s plight: An income that’s $200 too much for housing help.” If you‘re in the mood for a tear-jerker, you couldn’t ask for more than this news article that reads like a paperback novel. It continues on two jump pages, complete with a photo showing the tattooed dad tenderly kissing his young son‘s head. Midway through, be forewarned, your patience will wear thin.

The account of a family’s travails begins with these words:

The kitchen light was already on as Kevin Scarbrough rose for another day of empty promises. He poured a mug of strong coffee and slipped a cellphone into the pocket of his jeans, turning up the volume in case a call came from the hospital or the housing authority.

“Where are you going?” his 4-year-old son Anthony asked. A catheter dangled from his leg, running to a kidney that failed before he was born and set in motion his family’s spiral into the shelter.

“I’m going to smoke,” replied Kevin, 41, and he stepped into the mid-morning sun. He stood in the gravel as he did each day and lit a cigarette, staring out into the concrete emptiness of UMOM New Day Center in east Phoenix. It had been the same view for almost a year, after the Scarbroughs were swallowed by an affordable-housing crisis the federal government was calling a national problem.

Ultimately, the sick little boy received a much-needed kidney transplant. The mother cut back her work hours to qualify for public assistance and the family of five was able to move into a subsidized apartment.

A “shrunken paycheck” would arrive at the end of the week, and they needed basics like towels, sheets and pillows. But according to the newspaper account, unemployed Kevin had the first $140 earmarked.

“He already had tattoos of his children’s names and the New York Knicks logo, and now had another in mind, the heart-in-hand logo of Phoenix Children’s Hospital with Anthony’s name arching above it.” The Dad with no job and on food stamps that never last the entire month “wanted to be a walking billboard for the hospital that saved his son.”

Know this: With a jobless father who puts cigarettes and tattoos before the basic needs of his family, dire circumstances will remain the norm for the Scarbrough family. This saga is a poor example of a national housing crisis. It only reflects the flawed mindset of a self-centered fool who is able to father children.


Not so benign business group behind deceptive ads

August 9, 2017

Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) and Jeff the Flake have been longtime supporters of trade pacts that harm American workers

The ads are showing up on television with regularity. They begin by saying the economy is down, Americans are out of work and the tax system is “broken.” That word piqued our interest since it is routinely used by those on the left or the amnesty promoting establishment elite — typified by members of the Chambers of Commerce — illegal alien profiteers, who claim our immigration system is “broken.”

Conveniently ignored is the fact that the Dow has repeatedly broken all time record highs since the beginning of the year and unemployment is down, coinciding with President Trump taking office.

Sure enough, the same word is used by a group calling itself the Business Roundtable,  purchaser of the ads.  Its immigration page after cutting through the baloney —serves as a beacon illuminating its barely concealed agenda.

 It also contends the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) will “open markets for U.S. exports and support U.S. growth and jobs.” This unsavory deal was made by Barack Obama. President Donald Trump withdrew from it within days of his inaugural. His move was no surprise since he spoke of his intentions as he campaigned, saying the suspect deal would send jobs overseas and benefit special interests rather than American workers. Voters listened and enthusiastically supported the business titan turned presidential candidate.

The Business Roundtable, using Obama double talk, calls the TPP “a modern trade agreement for a modern economy that removes foreign tariffs (taxes) and other trade barriers and sets strong and enforceable rules for free and fair trade, which will make American companies, workers and farmers more competitive in the international market.”

Believe that, and we’ve got a bridge to sell you.

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin’s fact-filled commentary on the topic,Why America hates the GOP-Obamatrade deal,” written two years ago was right on target then and remains so today.

It doesn’t take a seer to realize the Business Roundtable is a liberal farce. On Tuesday, it sent this letter extolling the virtues of NAFTA to U.S. Trade Representative, Ambassador Robert Lighthizer; Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross; Secretary of State Rex Tillerson; Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin and Director of the National Economic Council Gary Cohn. Pay particular attention to the list of 108 signers.

Regardless of their shallow words, the business signers want nothing more than to lead American workers off the economic cliff as they push for massive increases in cheap foreign labor, including imported tech workers from India and China over highly educated, highly skilled American workers who are forced to train their replacements.

Malkin concludes her enlightening commentary with this bold question, “What part of “Stop selling out America!” does D.C. not understand?

But, we’ve saved the best for the lastThe Guardian reveals John McCain received $51,700 in the first quarter of 2015 from business interests desiring the TPP be fast-tracked. He later expressed disappointment when President Trump withdrew from the pact. And Obama’s willing toady Jeff Flake? Despite the American people’s overwhelming objection to it, he said Congress is going to have to suck it up and ratify the agreement because “it simply must be done,” even in the face of hostile opposition to trade along the campaign trail.

Is this the guy you’d send back to the senate in 2018?


John McCain & George Soros: Decades long nefarious connections

June 22, 2017

Radical leftist Soros aims to influence elections and public policy with cash infusions

High dollar donations from suspect characters and dubious international players are hallmarks of the McCain Institute for International Leadership, housed at Arizona State University. its shady dealings need not only a bright light but a good dose of disinfectant.

The Daily Caller reports that critics note that the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive “Sedona Forum” bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) that annually co-mingled special interests and powerful political players in alleged pay-to-play schemes.

The McCain Institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.” Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals.

ABC 15 AZ  reported in 2016 on a $1 million Saudi Arabian donation to the institute, a contribution the McCain group has refused to explain publicly.

Even the far-left Washington Post questions the legitimacy of McCain’s claim that he has nothing to do with the institute that bears his name.

Donations at or exceeding $100,000 include monies raised by McCain Presidential Campaign. Also on the list are the McCain Institute Foundation and Cindy Hensley McCain’s Hensley Beverage Company. In the $25,000 – $99,999 category is McCain’s socialist friend, multi-billionaire George Soros, who disdains international borders. The notorious Gregory and Lisa WendtSan Francisco liberals who have worked with McCain operatives to oust elected precinct committeemen in Arizona precincts — are on the list, as is “The Smith Richardson Foundation’s grant [which] supports the project: From Reset to Containment: In Search of a Better U.S. Policy towards Putin’s Russia.”  This sounds suspiciously akin to the issue  McCain has been manufacturing  to discredit President Donald Trump.

Socialist Soros, one of the most powerful men o the planet, controls a vast network of radical organizations that is nearly unfathomable. Through them, he and his family are able to mobilize street mobs, turning incidents into incendiary hordes of rioters as we’ve seen repeatedly.  Ferguson, Missouri was a single example. The thuggery and violence associated with Black Lives Matter was a direct result of Soros’ influence and money.  Discover the Networks, a guide to the political left, has a wealth of information.

In 2016 Politico reported that George Soros’ latest quest was a “quiet overhaul of America’s criminal justice system. Here in Arizona, he funded a losing candidate for Maricopa County Attorney and a winning candidate for sheriff, spending $2 million to topple Sheriff Joe Arpaio and install Democrat Paul Penzone. Liberal Democrats and RINOs are the recipients of his generosity. Check out Open Secrets lists under Recipients and Congressional Committees.

Seeing Red AZ has previously covered the cozy relationship between John McCain, Hillary Clinton and multi-billionaire anti-capitalist, America-hater George Soros.

AZ Regents chair gets testy at challenge, hurls personal insults & UPDATE

June 17, 2017

Mark Finchem, a Republican representing Dist. 11 in Tucson doesn’t meet the high standard of dress established by former state legislator Greg Patterson — who has since gone to law school and is now the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) chairman. Patterson oversees the three state universities he previously sucker punched for their imperial excesses.

It no doubt galls Patterson, who is also a CPA, that the less educated Rep. Finchem is a member of the Judiciary and Public Safety Committee and Vice Chair of two other significant committees.

In a private meeting that Patterson secretly recorded,* he laid into Finchem — who along with East Valley Rep. Jill Norgaard (R-Dist. 18) — had the temerity to co-sponsor a bill to rein in the authority of the board that Patterson chairs.

Apparently, she dresses well enough and is suitably degreed to suit Patterson, but her perch as Chair of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Education, gives her a level of prominence that rankles the ‘Top Regent’ who takes his title very seriously. Bully Patterson referred to Rep. Finchem’s western attire as a  “costume that doesn’t work.” He advised Finchem to trim his mustache and buy a suit before abruptly leaving the meeting.

Though Patterson has been a registered lobbyist since 1997, he fails miserably in the area of persuasive techniques.

This news article provides background on the unsavory meeting, and includes disapproving comments of Patterson’s actions from Vice Chair Bill Ridenour, who takes over as chairman July 1. Board of Regents President Eileen Klein, also condemned Patterson’s behavior, saying it was not reflective of how the regents do business. 

The Arizona Board of Regents voted on Jan. 20 to oppose SB 1061, a bill proposing to cap tuition and fee increases at two percent per year at the state’s public universities. The bill was co-sponsored by nine Republican state senators and one Republican state representative and would have significantly restricted the power of the regents and the universities to impose ever escalating tuition and fees on students. Readers have to plow through ten paragraphs of self-congratulatory hogwash to get to ABOR’s opposition to restrictions to rein in student costs. 

Universities do not have market forces and shareholders to enforce spending discipline, so foisting the trickery of “a $1 billion/30-year plan to fund new capital and rebuild aging infrastructure without raising taxes,” sounds reasonable to the elites who won’t be around in 2047 to answer for its ruinous impact.

One burning question remains: Were they dressed appropriately enough to meet Greg Patterson’s exacting standards as they implemented the epic con job?

ABOR Chair Greg Patterson has resigned after hurling an insult-laden spew at state legislator Mark Finchem.

As of his resignation Monday June 19, the pretentious Board of Regents chairman is now officially a goner, though he still had three years on his term. According to this report in the Arizona Republic, he laid off his obtuse insults — which he secretly recorded and then disseminated to shocked regent staffers — on being “overzealous.” He also declared he was in a “caffeine-induced rage.”  If those foolish excuses weren’t enough, he had one more up what we assume was his perfectly starched and ironed sleeve.  He didn’t want to be a “distraction.”

Patterson won’t distract anyone. But as he toils at his lobbyist day job, will he be able to attract clients who don’t want to risk having their grooming insulted?
