Do you prefer a sleek jaguar or a secure border wall? & UPDATE

November 25, 2017

Liberals are fond of telling us why building a secure border wall is a bad idea.

A wall won’t stop those who are determined to enter the United States: As though desire provides rights. Ask Harvey Weinstein, Al Franken, Charlie Rose and the myriad other high profile sexual abusers about that.

 We can’t stop the illicit drugs coming across the border: We just have to consider our kids collateral damage.

Our population is aging:  Regardless of the fact that many illegals have the equivalent of a grade school education and limited skills, we are told we need a younger labor force. Illegal aliens, though prized by  the illegal labor profiteers who belong to the Chambers of Commerce, are not educated high tech workers. Crops are able to be harvested mechanically. When they are trained to work in the service industries and construction trades, they undercut wages and  take jobs from American workers. Their American-born children then compete against our own American students for university placements and jobs.

It’s cruel to break up families: Although deported illegal aliens are free to take their children home with them, this bogus claim remains high on the faith-based community’s list.

Now there are even more novel approaches to advocating for an open border. We are to consider the “fragile ecology” of the desert border region, and  big cats —  Jaguars, to be exact. The Arizona Republic devoted three pages to telling us about the “beautiful cats” that are “known to cross the border in the same mountainous region as people.” Bet you didn’t know “building an unbroken barrier to stop the people, means extinction of the America jaguar.” The article is titled, “A big cat, a big wall, a big question.” The bold subtitle hits the preposterous button:  “Keeping border crossers out of the U.S. would also affect jaguars, symbols of a strong Southwestern ecosystem. Is it worth it?”

To which we say, Yep. Sure thing. Or as the Lone Ranger‘s trusted sidekick,Tonto, often said, “You betcha, Kemosabe. “

Sunday’s front page report, continuing on to three jump pages, reveals there is another wildcat endangered by the construction of a border wall. Ocelots, described as spotted night stalkers that prowl the Amazon, are also threatened. Most migrate from Mexico into Texas. We are told they live a life of mystery in the borderland shadows, evading even the eyes of the biologists who study them, except during occasional live trappings or roadkill cleanups.

Though biologists miss them, they haven’t escaped the notice of the open border proponents at the Arizona Republic, writing, “In Arizona, at least occasionally, a few slink along the tree-lined mountains that rise from the Sonoran Desert, a place where they face local extinction if a border wall cuts off migration routes.”

Next we’ll be told that construction of the border wall will further endanger exotic species, previously unknown in the southern deserts. Watch for articles on the newly spotted white rhinoceros, penguins, zebras or gorillas. The Arizona Republic is not above using any scheme in its attempt to halt the much needed wall.

Many Americans who voted for Donald Trump last year did so, based in large part, on his promise to build a barrier. Illegal invaders on two feet, must be stopped.

Pres. Trump: US withdraws from Paris Climate deal

June 1, 2017

“The Paris Accord disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries, leaving American workers, who I love, and taxpayers, to absorb the costs in terms of lost jobs, lower wages, shuttered factories and vastly diminished economic production.” — President Donald Trump, June 1, 2017

Fulfilling his campaign promise “to put American workers first,” President Donald Trump has announced the United States’ exit from the Paris Climate Change pact entered into by his predecessor Barack Obama — who imperially bypassed seeking senate authorization to enter into the deal that hamstrings the U.S. Trump left open the possibility of a renegotiation that’s fair to America.

Declaring “I was elected to represent the citizens in Pittsburgh, not Paris,” President Trump took aim at the costly Climate Change restrictions imposed on American citizens, their jobs and the U.S. economy.

“As of today, the United States will cease all implementation of the nonbinding Paris Accord,” Trump said during a White House Rose Garden announcement. The president noted the agreement disadvantaged the U.S. “to the exclusive benefit of other countries,” leaving American businesses and taxpayers to absorb the cost.

VP Pence calls Limbaugh’s show to defend budget deal

May 3, 2017

Rush Limbaugh to Vice President Mike Pence:

“If I’m the Democrats, $21 billion, 15 billion for defense that was not originally authorized, that’s a small price to pay for continuing to fund refugee resettlement, continuing to fund Planned Parenthood, continuing to fund sanctuary cities, continuing to fund the EPA, and not build the wall. The Democrats clearly think this is a big win, and they’re confident they can block Trump’s agenda after this spending bill for the rest of Trump’s term. There isn’t anything of the president’s agenda in this budget, and people are beginning to ask, when’s that gonna happen? If you’re gonna shut it down in September, why not now?”

“If this is what happens, Mr. Vice President, why vote Republican? What is the point of voting Republican if the Democrats are gonna continue to win practically 95% of their objectives, such as in this last budget deal?”

The transcript of the entire conversation which took place Tuesday. is here.

Limbaugh echoes other prominent conservative media personalities in questioning the budget, which is viewed as a giveaway to Democrats. Meanwhile, devious House Speaker Paul Ryan refers to this charade as a “Pro-GOP game changer.” In our view it’s only a “game changer” if the players are looking to throw the game to the opposition.


Obama: Climate change not terrorism greatest threat

August 4, 2015

When he gave the commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy in May, Barack Obama, told the graduates who would be risking their lives to protect our country from peril, that he views climate change as the most severe threat to global and national security.

“I am here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security, and, make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country,” the New York Times reported. “And so we need to act, and we need to act now,” Obama warned the graduating cadets.

Monday he furthered his cause by announcing limits on U.S. power plant emissions, declaring power plant owners must cut carbon dioxide emissions by 32 per cent from 2005 levels by 2030.

Thumbing his nose at criticism that his plan would increase energy bills for Americans, harm the poor, and cost jobs, he dismissively stated, “This is the right thing to do.”

Obama will host Pope Francis at the White House in September. The like-thinking duo are expected to make an urgent joint call for action. Francis will address both chambers of Congress.

Yet according to a Gallup poll, Americans believe the Islamic State group known as ISIS poses the most serious threat to the United States in the next decade. A stunning 84 percent of respondents said ISIS jihadists, who have ravaged Syria and Iraq in their quest for a new Islamic state, and terrorism in general, presented a “critical threat”

Barack Obama still can’t bring himself to acknowledge the radical Muslim component of terrorism. Gallup summarized the February survey findings this way: “In a winter that has seen acts of unspeakable terrorism…Americans are clearly concerned about Islamic militants and terrorists.”

The second most serious threat considered was the development of nuclear weapons by Iran.

Again, Barack Obama and his inept negotiator John Kerry are not on the same wave length as Americans. Bargaining behind closed doors with the radical Iranian regime and purveyor of extremist violence who continue to lead their countrymen in chanting, “Death to America!” and vow to annihilate Israel, is indefensible. Congress remains in the dark regarding the actual deal making while the United Nations is the green light partner in this incredibly risky scheme.  The lunatics are running the asylum.


Pope Francis: “Global Political Authority” needed to tackle climate change

June 17, 2015

Pope pushes One World governmental authority in advance of Sept. 25, 2015, U.N. appearance

The UK’s Guardian News carries the report “Pope Francis warns of destruction of Earth’s ecosystem in leaked encyclical.”

The 192-page encyclical comes packed with dire predictions of an apocalyptic future from the religious leader, now masquerading as a far-left scientist. Francis lambastes rich countries for “looting” the world and takes aim at bankers and climate skeptics for accelerating its decline. Further, he warns that the world is facing widespread crop failure, economic ruin, mass migration and the destruction of entire eco-systems as he repeatedly linked climate change with the plight of the poor.

From the Guardian report:

“Pope Francis will this week call for changes in lifestyles and energy consumption to avert the “unprecedented destruction of the ecosystem” before the end of this century, according to a leaked draft of a papal encyclical. In a document released by an Italian magazine on Monday, the pontiff will warn that failure to act would have “grave consequences for all of us. (The Vatican was enraged by the leak accusing the magazine responsible of a “heinous act” that amounted to “sabotage against the pope.”)

Francis also called for a new global political authority tasked with “tackling … the reduction of pollution and the development of poor countries and regions.” While accepting that there may be some natural causes of global warming, the pope will also state that climate change is mostly a man-made problem.

“Humanity is called to take note of the need for changes in lifestyle and changes in methods of production and consumption to combat this warming, or at least the human causes that produce and accentuate it,” he wrote in the leaked draft. “Numerous scientific studies indicate that the greater part of the global warming in recent decades is due to the great concentration of greenhouse gases … given off above all because of human activity.”

Read that to mean that those in industrialized nations, especially Americans, must drastically scale back their standard of living. His provocative mastery of Marxist, anti-capitalist  buzzwords is disturbing, with redistribution of wealth one of his frequent themes. Yet he does not deny himself the latest technology as he travels the globe like a jetsetter, frequently tweets and even takes selfies. Last year his tweet, “inequality is the root of social evil,” set off a heated debate in which he was  criticized for increasingly driving a wedge between conservatives and the Catholic Church. Francis previously slammed “trickle-down” economics, a basic tenet of President Reagan’s economic policy as a “crude and naive” theory.

Seeing Red AZ posted, “Pope Francis embraces leftist doctrines,” May 14, just one month ago.

We concluded that post with these words: Income redistribution is the main theme of Karl Marx’ Communist Manifesto: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”


Pope Francis embraces leftist doctrines

May 14, 2015

Capitalism is the culprit

In a deeply disturbing move that negatively affects peace talks by removing  incentives for Palestinian leadership to return to the negotiating table, Pope Francis has given his recognition to the “state of Palestine.”

The United States, many Western European nations and Israel —- which the Palestinians and other Arab nations have pledged to annihilate —- oppose such recognition. 

According to The Blaze, the treaty was finalized days before Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ scheduled visit with Pope Francis at the Vatican. Abbas, a Muslim, is heading to Rome to attend the upcoming canonization of new Catholic saints. The Pope will bestow sainthood on two Palestinian nuns this Sunday.

“This (Palestinian state recognition) is a very important recognition as the Vatican has a very important political status that stems from its spiritual status,” said Abbas’ senior aide, Nabil Shaath. “We expect more EU countries to follow.”

This disappointing position is not a stand alone.

Pope Francis is also a proponent of the Global Warming farce, more recently known as “Climate Change” since the warming has failed to materialize. Regardless of the name, the culprit remains the same: The United States of America. Third World polluters such as China, India, Korea and Iran are given a pass as we are constrained.

The pope’s closest adviser recently denounced climate change skeptics; blaming capitalist motivations from “movements in the United States” for opposing his upcoming environmental letter issued in tandem with a U.N. sponsored agreement and a U.N. summit on climate change in Paris later this year.  “The ideology surrounding environmental issues is too tied to a capitalism that doesn’t want to stop ruining the environment because they don’t want to give up their profits,” opined Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga. 

Last May, during a speech at a gathering of several U.N. agency leaders, Francis, sounding a lot like Karl Marx,* called on governments to redistribute wealth and benefits to the poor to help curb “economy of exclusion.”  Latin America’s first pope has frequently lashed out at what he terms the injustices of capitalism and the global economic system.

Staying with the economic theme, Francis even delved into the issue of equal pay declaring it a “pure scandal” to pay women less than men, though he gave no indication that he would be putting that plan into effect at the Vatican.

Days ago, Cuba’s President Raul Castro received a warm welcome at the Vatican from Pope Francis, who played a key role in normalizing relations between the United States and the hostile island nation just 90 miles off our shore.  

“Bienvenido!” Francis greeted the Communist leader. The meeting lasted nearly an hour, as the Argentine-born pope and Castro spoke in their native Spanish. Francis will pay a visit to Cuba in September opting to stop there first en route to the United States.

So very Sowell: Conservative genius takes on AZ Leftist Grijalva

April 19, 2015

Take time to read Dr. Thomas Sowell’s most recent column, ‘The New Inquisition.’

Marching in lockstep on the very debatable topic of “global warming” is the issue as Marxist U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, who runs as a Democrat, attempts to silence scientists whose free speech and divergent views interfere with his extremist political agenda. The Arizona Congressman has been writing to universities, demanding financial records showing who is financing the research of dissenting scientists, and demanding their internal communications as well. This is political correctness run amok and the right to dissent being shut down.

This letter posted on WUWT is an example of Grijalva’s witch hunting techniques in which he uses the signature Alinskyite tactics of the community organizer he once was.

The Daily Caller’s video points to 2014 as another year without global warming.—-  joining  219 months with no significant upward temperature trend.
