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.

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to “recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Read President Washington’s Proclamation  in its entirety hereWe recommend this inspiring message for reading aloud at your dining table today. It’s a gift your friends and family will long remember.


Networks’ disgraceful allegations against Christian legal group

July 15, 2017

ABC, NBC and CNN  dishonestly call Alliance Defending Freedom a “hate group”

The Valley of the Sun is fortunate to have Scottsdale-based Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) in our midst. ADF is the nation’s largest religious freedom legal advocacy organization, winning  seven cases before the U.S. Supreme Court in the past seven years.

Earlier this week, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions addressed the group on the topic of religious freedom.  ABC, NBC and CNN networks headlined the event describing ADF as an “anti-LGBT hate group,” using information gleaned from an actual hate group, the radical, violence inciting Southern Poverty Law Center  (SPLC)— which NBC deceptively referred to as a  “prominent civil rights watchdog.”

Count on the shameless Democrats to join the dishonest tirade. DNC spokesman Joel Kasnetz was quoted as declaring, “Sessions’ appearance at this event, as the top law enforcement official in the country, brings into question whether the attorney general intends to protect all Americans.”

Some Phoenix residents are familiar with the New Times, a giveaway, left-wing tabloid, featuring soft porn ads along with its sensationalized articles blatantly targeting conservative officials. Until recently, Stephen Lemons, whose rancorous column titled, ‘The Feathered Bastard,’ was a mainstay of the tabloid, was a local resident. His final column which we addressed in,A vile goodbye from a sour Stephen Lemons,” was written in April as he prepared to move to a new gig with the disreputable SPLC in Montgomery, Alabama, befitting his extremist bent.

Kristen Waggoner was interviewed by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Friday evening. She does an excellent job of describing the skewed news reporting of Attorney General Sessions’ speech, the mission of ADF and its many successes in the courts. She is ADF’s senior vice president of US legal advocacy and general counsel, with an impressive bio.

The Federalist provides this copy of Attorney General Sessions inspirational speech. You’ll be glad you took a few minutes to read it.


Pope Francis hurls more insults at U.S. and Pres. Trump

July 9, 2017

Seeks to marginalize President Trump over “immigration” at meeting with G20 world leaders

 The relationship between Pope Francis and the United States has often been a rocky one. This pope is clearly a Marxist, while the roots of the U.S. are grounded in liberty, respect for the rule of law and a sense of personal responsibility. Though Americans are the world’s most charitable, the pope adheres to Karl Marx’ redistributionist philosophy of “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs, “  — not advocating charity but confiscation and redistribution from earners to takers.

He also places illegal invaders above lawful immigrants — though not at the Vatican.

Pope Francis and his minions have made clear their abhorrence of Donald Trump from his days as a candidate. The animus has only worsened since President Trump’s inauguration.

During the 2016 campaign, the pope displaying his magical powers of ESP, actually claimed the Republican front-runner, “Was not a Christian,” declaring, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”

Exhibiting a grand dose of hypocrisy, he even tried to bully Trump into submission on his campaign pledge to build a wall to secure our sovereign border. The globalist  pope claims to abhor such barriers, though he lives within the confines of Vatican City guarded by its own army of Swiss Guards, behind massive 50-foot-tall, ten-feet thick walls surrounding the impenetrable Vatican fortress.

Viewing himself as omnipotent Francis claimed Trump’s withdrawal from the Climate Change accords was a personalslap in the face.”

When Francis was scheduled to address the U.S. Congress, he first made a beeline to the repressed island of Cuba to visit Communist dictator .Raul Castro, clearly showing his preferred alliance.  Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar, a devout Catholic, opted not to attend the papal address. Read Gosar’s cogent explanation for his boycott.

Now while President Trump is interacting with world leaders at the G20 summit — even meeting with Russia’s Putin for the first time and addressing the issue of intrusion into our elections — the America abhorring pope claims,America has a distorted vision of the world.” This linked CNS news report is definitely worth your time.

Francis needs to decide if he is the spiritual leader of the Catholic Church’s estimated 1.2 billion adherents, or a radical political aspirant espousing Communism and cheering lawlessness on the world stage. With a gay and drug fueled sex scandal recently erupting within the Vatican, he should have his hands full.

He can’t have it both ways.


Remembering our many blessings this Independence Day

July 4, 2017


….and honoring those 56 brave men* who 241 years ago had the vision and strength of character to challenge authority and affix their signatures to the Declaration of Independence.  

Before signing the Declaration of Independence, our Founders included this memorable line:

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Meanwhile, the U.K.‘s The Guardian Newspaper reports that former president Obama, speaking in his boyhood home of Indonesia, warns against taking too much pride in your country. He calls patriotism “aggressive nationalism.”

What a pleasure to once again have a patriot in the White House. This video shows the rousing support President Donald Trump received throughout his July 1, speech as he honored our service men and women at the “Celebrate Freedom Rally “held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

May God continue to bless America.

SCOTUS: Missouri  engaged in religious discrimination

June 26, 2017

Trinity Lutheran wins!

Alliance Defending Freedom, a Scottsdale-based legal organization that stands in defense of religious liberty defended this case before the US Supreme Court. ADF Lawyer David Cortman argued the case.

Excerpted from the ADF site:

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled 7-2 that it is unconstitutional for the state to treat churches and other religious organizations worse than everyone else simply because they are religious.

This is great news! And it sets an important precedent to protect religious freedom. The government should never treat people of faith like second-class citizens.

Yet, that’s how the State of Missouri treated Trinity Lutheran Church when it disqualified them from receiving a non-profit playground reimbursement grant. In order to provide a safer environment for the children who attend its preschool and play on its playground, Trinity Lutheran applied for the grant, which was open to all nonprofits. And they were an ideal candidate, having been ranked fifth by the State out of 44 applicants, based on the criteria.

The State awarded 14 grants that year, but Trinity Lutheran was not among them.

Why? Because Trinity Lutheran preschool is operated by a church. Besides the fact that this was blatant religious discrimination, a majority of the children at the preschool are not members at Trinity Lutheran. On top of that, Trinity Lutheran leaves the playground open outside of school hours for children in the community to use.

Is their safety less important because they are playing on a “religious” playground? Of course not.

The Supreme Court recognized this in its decision today.  Associate Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg were the two dissenting votes. Sotomayor wrote the dissenting opinion, which follows the linked decision.
