US job giveaway bizarrely garners GOP support

July 12, 2019

Although rare, there are times when conservatives are mystified by the bizarre actions of those they help elect. Such was the case Wednesday when 140 Republican House members joined 224 Democrats and 1 Independent to vote for the deceptively titled,Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act.”

Of Arizona’s decreasing number of Congressional Republicans, only U.S. Reps. Paul Gosar (CD 4) and Andy Biggs (CD 5) stayed the course. David Schweikert (CD 6) and Debbie Lesko (CD 8) disappointingly joined the Democrats. View the vote on HB 1044.

Drafted by Democrats and business entities seeking cheaper labor, HB 1044 provides a green card giveaway to 300,000 East Indian contract workers — and their estimated 300,000 family members — by removing the “country caps” currently in immigration law. The bill significantly increases incentives for more Indian graduates to take jobs sought by our own U.S. college graduates — saddled with school loan debt they need to pay off and lives they are anxious to live. Marriage and home ownership become distant dreams when jobs they have trained for are going to imported workers.

As reported by Breitbart News’ Neil Munro, GOP Senators are pushing a matching giveaway bill supported by Democrat presidential hopeful, Sen. Kamala Harris. Only 57 of 197 GOP legislators — and only eight Democrats — voted against the giveaway.

The GOP’s House leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, voted for the giveaway to Indian outsourcing workers. The bill also helps U.S. real-estate investors by extending the green-card giveaway to the Chinese lenders who use the EB-5 program to buy green cards for their families.

Munro reports:

Business groups touted the win before the vote. Via Twitter, Andrew Moriarty, deputy director of federal policy at Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us leftist advocacy group compared the HR.1044 “country caps” bill to the Democrats’ DACA-amnesty bill:

This is a very important bipartisan effort that we strongly support… If this passes, it will join the Dream and Promise Act as two pieces of commonsense but CRUCIAL immigration legislation passed by the House this year, waiting only for a vote in the Senate.

 The Department of Homeland Security finally announced its opposition to the Senate’s version — S.386 — shortly before the House voted for the giveaway to Indian contract-workers and their U.S. employers.

News India Times  ecstatically and with more than a tinge of hyperbole, reports, “Hope has reignited for more than half a million Indian legal immigrant workers and their immediate family members stuck almost infinitely in the immigration pipeline for a Green Card: the US House of Representatives in a rare show of bipartisanship on Capitol Hill passed a resolution that, if enacted into law, would bring down the estimated wait time for a Green Card to less than 10 years from the current preposterous timeline for some that exceeds 100 years.”

Who knew India, like Mexico, is so eager to lose its young people to the USA?  Reparations, American money sent back to their families in their native countries, speaks with a persuasive voice.

In 2016 My India citing World Bank figures crowed, “India has again topped the list of Inward Remittances. It received around $70 billion over the year 2013. It is followed by China. Inward remittances are the money, which are transferred or sent by the overseas Indian diaspora to their family, friends, and relatives back in India. It can be in the form of foreign currency, traveler’s cheque or demand draft. India has now become the leading receiver of remittance in the world. India has held on the top position for the past 5 years in a row now.’ Those $billions would only have grown in the intervening years.

This raises the question, “Why is the United States so eager to import workers who will compete with our own citizen work force and willingly allow $billions to be siphoned to other nations who use us as their all too generous piggy bank?”

Pres. Trump‘s first-rate record = overwhelming support

July 10, 2019

Today we’re taking a spin around the always fascinating Federal Election Commission site. Elections are expensive, national elections even more so. By necessity, money is the engine that drives the political train. Few of the Democrat/Socialist pack are household names, but they all consider themselves capable of leading the free world.

Like indistinguishable dervishes, they whirl in and out of contention. On Tuesday California Rep. Eric Swalwell exited without a ripple, while leftist billionaire Tom Steyer, who vowed he would not run, entered the race — leaving Democrats who relied on his $120 million donations during the midterm elections, empty-handed. Steyer’s vacuous heartthrob issue is impeaching President Trump. The recent exit of Mike Gravel, an 89-year-old former Alaska senator speaks for itself.

These are the current Dem candidates:

Mayor Bill de Blasio

Gov. Steve Bullock

Sen. Michael Bennet

Obama’s VP Joe Biden

Mayor Pete Buttigieg

Rep. Seth Moulton

Rep. Tim Ryan

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

Fmr Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke

Fmr Gov. John Hickenlooper

Gov. Jay Inslee

Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self declared Socialist.

Hedge fund billionaire Tom Steyer

Sen. Amy Klobuchar

Sen. Elizabeth  “Pocahontas ”Warren

Sen. Cory “I am Spartacus” Booker

Sen. Kamala Harris

Fmr Mayor Julian Castro

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard

Fmr Rep. John Delaney

Mayor Wayne Messam

Fmr Rep. Joe Sestak

New Ager Marianne Williamson

Tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang

Republicans who watched the recent Democrat debates, feel even more secure with incumbent President Donald Trump in the White House, fulfilling the promises he made as a candidate.

The DNC, well aware of the debate debacle, is scheduling more, two in the second week of September, but with more restrictions on who can participate. Count on open borders and (taxpayer funded) giveaways to dominate as ABC News partners with Univision, the Spanish language broadcast network.


Failing AZ Republic’s cheap, novel news sourcing

July 8, 2019

It’s no secret. The Arizona Republic’s end is near. Subscriptions  plummeted in the wake of its sheep-like endorsement of Hillary Clinton in 2016 in a state that gave all of its electoral votes to Donald Trump. Parent company Gannett has overseen massive layoffs following by-outs of contracted employees, leaving ASU Cronkite J School students working on the fly — since the now homeless newspaper sold its office building and parking garage to stay afloat. The Republic has repeatedly been on the auction block.

Desperate for relevancy as it attempts to entice its remaining readers to a much less expensive all digital format, the latest dodge is to bring in, “informed, connected and uniquely Arizonan” (and unpaid) writers to produce “semi-regular guest columns.”  This new charade will be known as “Voices.”

The introduction muses: “Why we’re looking for more diverse opinions,” and then answers with this bit of snark: “Why do we want more civil debate and smart ideas that differ from our own? Probably because these days, they are so hard to find.”

The only takeaway from that absurdity is the consensus of opinion agrees with the editorial page editor, Phil Boas, which election results showed to be patently false.

Who could forget Boas?  He’s the do-anything-for-a-buck character who oversaw the daily coordinated takedown of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio — his own father-in-law. Arpaio, who was elected to an unprecedented six four-year terms, has more savvy in his little finger than Boas has in his entire rotundity.

Boas then devotes two pages to introducing the eight members of the “Board of Contributors,” with dual sets of the same photos.  Diversity is, of course, the game plan. But as with all leftists, that never includes a diversity of thought. Skin pigment reigns supreme as Boas states, “We‘ve brought together a new guard of black and Latino leadership,” oddly omitting the Asian businesswoman in the mix.

For an idea of the deception behind this farce, one of the “Voices,” is described as a “former executive director of the Arizona Republican Party.” Neglected is the fact that he is currently registered as a PND, “Party Not Declared,” after being exposed as ethically challenged. 

Another “Voice” is a high schooler in her junior year, described as a “lead organizer for two climate change groups. Still too young to vote and living off of her parents, this is her youth infused arrogant self-description:

“We, the youth, believe that #thisisZeroHour to act on climate change. We cannot afford to wait any longer for adults to protect our right to a clean, safe environment and the natural resources we need to not just survive, but flourish. We know that we are the leaders we have been waiting for!”

Waste no sympathy on the coming demise of this seriously ill and chronically wrong newspaper. It has methodically been carving out its own calamitous fate.


Dying AZ Republic heralds newsroom diversity quotas

July 3, 2019

The harsh truth for many of us who grew up following the news, is journalism Is dead. Victor Davis Hanson, writer extraordinaire, provides the stark reality in his illuminating column,Journalism is Dead—Long Live the Media!posted on American Greatness. The entire column is a worthy read, though we have lifted two paragraphs as we zero in on the affront that appeared in Arizona’s pathetic excuse for a newspaper.

First, Hanson:

“Concerning the three great psychodramas of the last two years—the Kavanaugh hearings, the Covington kids fiasco, and the Jussie Smollett fantasy—the media for too long trafficked in the lies of the discredited and predicated their coverage on ideology: feminists, Native Americans, and African-Americans as noble victims; their white male oppressors not so much, regardless of the actual facts of the case.

During the Duke lacrosse team mess, the University of Virginia fraternity hoax, and the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin drama the public first began to sense the old implicit media bias had become something new—an outright distortion of evidence to serve a higher cause. We are now at the point that the news consumer has little expectation that journalists will report the facts, but assumes that they will massage, distort, and misrepresent narratives for purposes of supposed social utility.”

Next, the failing, left-leaning Arizona Republic:

The homeless, skeletal semblance of its former self after massive layoffs, relying on editor-less ASU Cronkite students working out of their cars, dependent on McDonald’s wi-fi — treats readers to an embarrassing half-page editorial.

Greg Burton, a new hire as executive editor, unashamedly exposes the truth that drives the newsroom.  If you guessed news, you’re off by a country mile. It’s diversity! The actual title?

From our executive editor: We’re dedicated to improving newsroom diversity – and have the numbers to prove it.”  Seriously.

To Burton, gender and ethnicity trump (oops!) competency. He lists the percentages of “women and people of color” the newspaper has hired, promoted and added to the management ranks, while acknowledging the many personnel loses as subscriptions have plummeted. Burton continues, “We’ve dedicated ourselves to improving diversity as we recruit and retool. In 2018 and 2019, we rebuilt the newsroom to 30% people of color. As I write this, we’re at 31%.”

His offensive premise is only “people of color” can relate to “other people of color.” Following that brilliance to it’s logical conclusion, as an imperfect white male, Burton should be jobless again in record time. 

According to Feb. 2019 numbers provided by Statista, only 32% of United States’ adults trust the news media most of the time. The U.S. was among the several countries where less than 35 percent of survey respondents considered news media generally trustworthy, ranking close to Malaysia, Taiwan and Slovakia.

The Arizona Republic’s new executive editor Greg Burton provides a clue for the lack of trust. If reporters are hired to fill quotas based on their melanin/skin pigment and whether they sit or stand in the bathroom, clearly readers are held in similar disregard. That could be added to the long list of why there are so few left.

He concludes with this deceitful though pitiable pitch: “Know this about The Republic: We’re here to produce and deliver great journalism, and to reflect the community we serve. If you’re not a subscriber, join us at (provides the subscription address).” We’re betting there won’t be a rush to take him up on the invitation to support the shrunken, overpriced, Hillary endorsing rag that values diversity over veracity.


Trump triumphs with 2020 kickoff…

June 19, 2019

…as Orlando Sentinel pushes fake news; non-endorsement

A capacity crowd of over 20,000 supporters of President Donald J. Trump packed the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida Tuesday as he officially launched his 2020 reelection kickoff. (120.000 requested tickets.) Trump enthusiasts camped out for days, enduring both heavy rainstorms and sweltering heat, for a chance to be on hand to greet President Trump, First Lady Melania, and Vice President Mike Pence and wife Karen with ardent cheers.  The arena was draped with banners proclaiming, “Keep America Great.”

But the Orlando Sentinel newspaper would have none of it, irrationally writing a non-endorsement editorial well in advance of the Nov. 2020 election, saying it won’t endorse the president.

Like the Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper, the Orlando Sentinel also came out for problem-plagued and practiced liar Hillary in 2016. But this time the Sentinel has even outdone its own leftist lurch and deceit, writing in this absurd editorial:

“…some readers may wonder how the publication can eliminate a candidate before anyone knows who his opponent will be, so far in advance.

It’s “because there’s no point pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump.”

Preposterously adding it has had enough of “the chaos, the division, the schoolyard insults, the self-aggrandizement, the corruption, and especially the lies.”

We don’t recall those word grenades being hurled about either the Bill Clinton or Barack Obama administrations — both steeped in the very culture the newspaper falsely accuses the Trump administration of engaging in.

The president’s full speech can be viewed here.*

AZ Sen. Martha McSally: If you want to win in 2020, show us

June 17, 2019

Partnering with Dem presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand on “doping” is dopey

Sen. McSally,

You are facing ideological leftist Mr. Gabby Giffords aka Mark Kelly, whose 2020 senate campaign is being infused with cash by multi-billionaire Socialist George Soro‘s Act Blue.

Although the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic refers to you as “Arizona’s most reliable vote for Trump’s agenda,” realize that as the backhanded wallop it was intended to be. The newspaper will not endorse you.

Mark Levin’s Conservative Review is less than enthusiastic giving you a Liberty Score of D, or 67% — nothing short of unacceptable, if you’re attempting to win over the conservative voters you need.

Giffords/Kelly, a hypocritical Second Amendment restrictionist and open border fan, is chomping at the bit to replace you…which brings us to the topic of horses. With Arizona’s sieve-like southern border serving as a major point of entry for illegal aliens — foreign nationals from Central America and Mexico, but also as far removed from our hemisphere as Africa, India and points beyond — you have ready-made topics which resonate with the Republican base. Mexican border towns abutting Cochise County, Arizona are war zones with dozens slaughtered as casualties of the drug cartels.

Instead, for some inexplicable reason, you chose to address the topic ofrace horse doping.’ We oppose doping of any sort, especially when it comes to the electorate. Cozying up with New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand on this issue is pure folly. In the race of your life, she is also running — for the Democrat nomination to unseat Republican President Donald Trump.

Remember him? He’s our GOP standard bearer not a prop you stand beside when you think the photo-op serves your purposes. Emulating John McCain is a mistake. His modus operandi was colluding with Democrats from Ted Kennedy to Chuck Schumer, which was a major reason he was censured by elected GOP state committeemen at the Jan. 25, 2014 Statutory Republican Meeting.

When you lost the U.S. Senate to chameleon Kyrsten Sinema, it sent shock waves. You then became the recipient of a rare, follow-up gubernatorial appointment to an open seat. That opportunity will not present itself again. If you don’t fight to retain that Senate seat, your do-over days will be over and Arizona will be represented by a deep blue senate duo.

You were a fighter pilot and the first female commander of a combat fighter squadron. Act like it.

Your sole focus should be on supporting the President and his winning issues. The Dems will forget they knew you when you no longer serve their purposes. If you believe in bi-partisanship, you obviously still believe in Santa and the tooth fairy. Bi-partisanship is a noble goal in the legislative process, but it only exists if Republicans acquiesce and move leftward. There is no reciprocity from the Dems. Gillibrand has gone from supporting restrictions on illegals to now calling for the abolishment of ICE. You’re from Tucson, Martha. How’s that border working out for you?

King Colluder John McCain preferred to be known as a maverick,” to conceal the collaborator he was. Those shenanigans won’t win you Democrat votes when you are facing radical leftist and Obama pal, Mr. Gabby Giffords/Mark Kelly. You need the conservative electorate to turn out, but you won’t get us by partnering with Trump’s presidential challenger, far-left Kirsten Gillibrand. Like your opponent, Mr. Giffords/Kelly, Gillibrand is supported by ActBlue. Individual contributions through ActBlue are easily accessed on the Federal Election Commission website.

Your strategy, Martha, amounts to a personal and GOP death wish. The rest of us relish life and having Donald Trump as president.


Memo to McSally: Thrashing Trump is key to failure

June 1, 2019

There’s a lesson to be learned from Jeff Flake’s political nose-dive

Martha McSally, who served two terms in congress representing CD 2, was appointed to the U.S. Senate seat she currently occupies. The gubernatorial appointment followed her loss to Kyrsten Sinema, a foul-mouthed, self-declared bisexual and atheist with Communist leanings. Sinema creatively recrafted her image and was elected to replace anti-Trump Republicrat Jeff Flake whose 18% approval ratings were so low he opted against running for a second term.  McSally was appointed to replace Sen. Jon Kyl, who briefly filled the second senate seat after the death of John McCain. Kyl resumed his far more lucrative D.C. lobbying gig.

Arizona’s political musical chairs require a scorecard.

Now McSally is facing the electorate again and can’t decide who her base is, as political novice and hardened leftwinger Mr. Gabreille Giffords, (Mark Kelly) launches a senate challenge.

This race should be a cakewalk. But rather than embarking on an aggressive campaign supporting Republican President Trump, McSally has decided to move into the political wilderness. She supports an investigation into the foolish story of whether the USS McCain, docked in Japan, was hidden from the president during his trip to Japan. McSally has also joined her Democrat 2020 rival Mark “Giffords” Kelly opposing the president’s calls for tariffs on Mexican imports if Mexico doesn’t stop aiding hundreds of thousands of Central American illegals invading the USA.  The incrementally increasing tariffs, preceded by a warning, will only be imposed if Mexico chooses to continue facilitating the invasion.

As the first U.S. female fighter pilot to fly in combat and first to command a fighter combat squadron it should be assumed that McSally would not be reticent to wage a battle with Giffords/Kelly rather than playing the antagonist to the Republican President of the United States.

Keep up your foolishness, Martha, and not only will you not get the Democrat or registered Independent votes you seek, you will lose the Trump-supporting Republican base you need.

The leftist local newspaper has already begun hammering you. It’s a cinch it will endorse Mark “Giffords” Kelly. You need us. But we don’t come easy and you can’t take us for granted. It’s time to retool your campaign to garner our support.  Otherwise, you’ll lose again and your next appointment will be to the political graveyard.
