John Kerry: Neville Chamberlain clone puts world at risk & Update

March 26, 2015

Students of history know there is no peace though appeasement

Within days of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei presiding over and agreeing with crowds shouting “Death to America,”  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is photographed with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif. The two men are working to broker a nuclear deal for the despotic and demonic Iranian regime.

The photo is reminiscent of British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain meeting with Adolph Hitler. Chamberlain claimed his accord with the Nazi leader would bring “peace in our time,” after signing a non-aggression pact with Germany in 1938.

 For a much different take on accommodating enemies of liberty watch this classic video, “A Time for Choosing,” an illuminating speech delivered by Ronald Reagan, October 27, 1964.

 An inspiring excerpt:

‘Admittedly, there’s a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson of history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face—that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight or surrender.”

Shouts of “Death to America!” aid in nuclear negotiations.

The Obama administration is caving to Iranian demands regarding expansion of the scope of its nuclear program as negotiators work to finalize a framework agreement in the coming days, according to sources familiar with the disgraceful deal.

Read the complete report in the Washington Free Beacon. 


Weekend reading, viewing, guaranteed to drive you nuts

The Times of Israel reports that Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for “Death to America” on Saturday, a day after President Barack Obama appealed to Iran to seize a “historic opportunity” for a nuclear deal and a better future —- and as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry claimed substantial progress toward an accord.

Read the report, and then ask yourself why the Obama administration would see wisdom in attempting to cut a nuclear enrichment deal with the untrustworthy, unstable and diabolical Islamist regime of Iran?

Kerry’s negotiations would allow Iran to retain a substantial uranium enrichment program if the Iranian nuclear project is “peaceful,” although there is a clear consensus by senior members of America’s intelligence community that Iran’s nuclear activities are solely geared towards eventual weapons production.

Here is Obama taking his message directly to the Iranian people, greeting them in Arabic and informing them of the Obama family’s celebration of the Iranian holiday of Nowruz, marking the first day of Spring at the White House, including creating their own Haft Seen, representing their hopes for the New Year.

Obama even cites an Iranian (Persian) poet born in the 1300’s named Hafez, noted for memorizing the entire Quran as a child. Obama quoted, “It is early spring. Try to be joyful in your heart. For many a flower will bloom while you will be in clay.”

Attempting to negotiate rationally with despotic madmen who shout “Death to America” gives prophetic authenticity to Hafez’ words.


Aaron Schock: Another shirtless congressman fails

March 18, 2015

So far only egocentric Jeff Flake manages to slide when posting shirtless photos of himself Aaron_Schock_2011 U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock, considered a rising political star, resigned from Congress Tuesday. The 33-year-old Illinois Republican with a penchant for lavish living finally saw the walls closing in as The Chicago Sun-Times reported on the multiple probes of his questionable campaign reimbursement claims. 

A special election will be held to replace Schock. Gov. Bruce Rauner will have five days from the March 31 effective date of Schock’s resignation to schedule a special election. That election — including any primary — must be held within 120 days of the seat becoming vacant.

Schock, first elected in 2009, was Congress’ youngest member when he took office at age 27.

POLITICO, which uncovered campaign spending discrepancies through public records obtained under Illinois open records laws, has the full story here.

Schock secured a seat on the Ways and Means Committee and other posts of House GOP leadership. Had he asked, we would have advised the youthful congressman to have kept his shirt on. Bare-chesting it has been a  major stumbling block for other congressmen that has so far only been avoided by Arizonan Jeff Flake

Women as victims: A deceptive, though reliable leftist ploy

March 17, 2015

Hillary Clinton has made the “gender gap” the spine of her still undeclared campaign. It’s a slick maneuver to gin up the votes of women by convincing them they are an oppressed minority. Democrats are adept at  wringing mileage out non-issues they can contrive into benevolently granting victim status to their claque of followers.

The Arizona Republic is all too happy to carry the water for this fallacious argument. And it turns to Phoenix Councilwoman Kate Gallego to buttress wage disparity victimization by citing statistics from her heavily minority populated district. Cries of discrimination work, although she is the last one who should be using that offensive ploy. Gallego actually became the victim of vile discrimination for being white.

But lets look at some facts right here in Arizona. Most people are aware that Texas-born  Sandra Day O’Connor was the first woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court —-  in 1981, by conservative Republican Ronald Reagan, no less.

Yet how many are aware of Lorna Lockwood? In 1960 when all of our judges still ran for election, Lockwood ran for and won a position on the State Supreme Court. Five years later she became the first woman chief justice on any state supreme court in the entire United States. Justice Lockwood was born in 1903 in the Arizona Territory. 

We’ve stood in the forefront with numerous women governors and in the 1940’s even broke ground with a female Maricopa County sheriff —- Jewel Jordan. Women are prominently represented throughout the Arizona Courts —-  on the Federal District Court through the Superior Court level, Commissioner posts, the Courts of Appeals and Supreme Court.

This election cycle Arizona women have run for and won over a third of the state legislative seats. There are three Arizona women in Congress, a female secretary of state and superintendent of public instruction. The chair of the state corporation commission is a woman.

Former Arizona Secretary of State Betsey Bayless, later became President and CEO of the Maricopa Integrated Health System. She left the post after seven years in 2013. With one foot out the door, she brokered a deal others could only dream of, receiving a hefty $125,000 raise. Her base salary soared 33% overnight, from $375,003 to $500,000 — excluding benefits. Her retirement perks are spectacular. Another Arizona woman who has done very well.

And Democrat Kate Gallego, one of two women on the Phoenix City Council and the advocate for the downtrodden women in her district? As she lectures them on closing the “gender pay gap,” the Harvard and Wharton Business School educated woman should also tell them that without an adequate education, they can’t expect the success she and her congressman husband have achieved.

Whining and foot stomping won’t do a thing to ensure marketability. Only credentials do the job. The best way to achieve is to stay in school. Is Kate Gallego giving low-income women that key message? 


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

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.”

AZ legislator Anthony Kern’s bio lacks kernel of truth

March 13, 2015

First term state House member Anthony Kern (R-LD 20) has neither a bio nor photo accompanying his legislative member page.  Those omissions make it easier for the newcomer to misrepresent himself.

According to this report in the Arizona Capitol Times and this posting titled, “No, badge, no gun, no cop representing Glendale,” on the Rose Law Group Reporter, Kern, 53, isn’t quite on the up and up when it comes to his credentials.

His campaign website cagily skirts any mention of being a police officer, instead saying he owns a private investigation business. He says he graduated from the Glendale Law Enforcement Training Academy and is active in crime prevention as a member of Crime Free Multi-Housing and the National Institute of Crime Prevention. He notes he has been involved in the Block Watch program.

Open enrollment recruits —- those who are not sponsored by police departments —- must await sponsorship or employment before receiving full police certification. If his hasn’t arrived by age 53, Anthony Kern shouldn’t hold his breath waiting.


Obama’s exec. amnesty displaces jobless black citizens

March 8, 2015

Black Americans harmed by amnesty for illegals

On the 50th anniversary of the civil rights march in Selma, Alabama, the unemployment rate among black Americans is more than twice that of white Americans (4.7%) and nearly twice the national average ( 5.5%).

The latest statistics released Friday, by the U.S. Department of Labor show the high rate of unemployment among Black Americans at 10.4 percent

Whether the overall numbers are accurate or actual unemployment figures are misleadingly massaged by the Obama administration as Jim Clifton, CEO of Gallup, opined last month —- calling the numbers “The Big Lie“ —- there is no mistaking the figures are grim for those black voters who turned out a 96 percent vote for the first black president.

In January 2013, we posted, “Illogical coalition shills for illegal immigration,” questioning why blacks would join Hispanics pushing for amnesty and promote increased job protections for illegals, as they suffer massive unemployment?

The overriding question is, why would black American citizens, who have disproportionately high rates of unemployment both locally and nationally, be among those encouraging more illegals to be given legal status — allowing them to compete for jobs these citizens need and should have?

What kind of illogical thought process would cause activists within the black community to promote an even less hospitable employment atmosphere for their own brethren struggling in a still stagnant economy?

Even more alarming is the astronomical unemployment rate among black youth, ages 16 -19, which stands at a staggering 30 percent. This Feb. 2012 Bureau of Labor Statistics report shows the numbers have been as high as 49.1%. How do these young Americans benefit from the importation of foreign illegal workers and why would Barack Obama, who pledged to fundamentally transform the United States of  America attempt to do it on the backs of his own ethnic group who are American citizens?

In his speech Saturday in Selma, Obama declared, We’re the slaves who built the White House and the economy of the South….” Today pro-amnesty advocates will push the false narrative that amnesty for illegal invaders is the new civil rights movement.

It is not.
