Illegal invaders become “Americans-in-Waiting”

February 26, 2015

Americans_in_Waiting2

Direct from the White House website comes this load of double-talk from the Council of Economic Advisors.

“The President is continuing to take action, within his legal authority, to fix our broken immigration system.  Today, the Administration announced a final rule that will allow spouses of certain high-skilled workers to contribute to the economy while they wait to obtain lawful permanent residence status (or a “green card”) through their employer. America needs a 21st century immigration system that lives up to our heritage as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants—and that grows our economy. This change, as well as the other actions announced by the President this past November, will do just that.”

Sprinkled liberally throughout this piece of flagrant deception, “Taking Action to Unlock the Economic Contributions of Americans-in-Waiting,” (from which we have excerpted this paragraph) are the words “our broken immigration system.”

America’s citizens know full well our immigration system isn’t broken. The only thing “broken” is the will of Obamacrats to enforce it. 

When the latest Labor statistics show Americans are still unemployed and underemployed in record numbers —-  with many forced to accept lower paying jobs for which they are over-qualified —- in this still fragile economy, why import workers to compete against our own citizens?

On a good day, and trying hard, we couldn’t make this stuff up.

As you watch this video compilation, pay attention to his words as Obama said, “Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its border and set laws for residency and citizenship.” He was right then. He is distorting the U.S. Constitution, usurping congressional authority and corrupting our generous legal immigration process now.


Kayla Mueller: Another perspective

February 12, 2015

When a young life ends, it is always a wrenching tragedy.  When the death occurs far from home, questions abound and grief-stricken family and friends try in vain to piece together the puzzle —-  finding it never quite fits. Not now. Not ever.

In the case of Prescott-born Kayla Mueller, a photogenic 26-year-old, the angst leaps out in daily news reports peppered with personal stories and smiling photographs of a young woman that tug at our hearts. We read editorials and articles that cite her “global journey” which was “steered by those most in need.”

Nothing quite explains the path that led her to be held as a hostage by terrorists a world away —- known by the acronym ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) and eventually lose her life in their captivity.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has ordered flags statewide lowered to half-mast. She has been praised as a humanitarian by Arizona’s U.S. Senators and members of Congress, as well as national leaders of both political parties. Jeff Flake, speaking from the senate floor described the woman he never met as “sparkling.”

There is another facet of this picture that raises questions yet to be examined. Kayla Mueller’s own writings illuminate her support for, and aid to, Palestinian Arab terror groups, even acting as a human shield for them, along with her active participation in anti-Israel protests. This revealing Op-Ed from Wednesday’s edition of Israel National News is a must read for the rest of the story

Obama spews whoppers as global tensions worsen

February 10, 2015

During Monday’s press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Barack Obama responded to a reporter asking if he was angry with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for accepting Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to address Congress.

Included in Obama’s response was this insulting and untruthful nugget: “We have a practice of not meeting with leaders right before their elections, two weeks before their elections,” adding, “As much as I love Angela, if she was two weeks away from an election, she probably would not have received an invitation to the White House. And I suspect she wouldn’t have asked for one. So, you know, the — so, you know, this is just — some of this just has to do with how we do business.”

With that barbed comment Obama implies that he knows what Merkel would do, though he has never dealt with the Chancellor at a time when the U.S. was about to sell out her nation in a perilous nuclear deal with a neighbor committed to destroying Germany —- the situation Netanyahu is facing with Iran. Netanyahu’s March 3 address will focus on the dangers of a nuclear Iran.

In fact, Obama did meet with Merkel just two months prior to her 2013 election and has met with other world leaders under similar circumstances.

Even the leftist editorial board of the Washington Post expresses “major concerns” over the  Obama administration’s risky nuclear negotiations with Iran.

Obama’s fabricated rule regarding not meeting with foreign leaders close to an election doesn’t explain why Secretary of State John Kerry and VP Joe Biden met with Netanyahu’s chief political rival Isaac Herzog this past weekend.

Breitbart exposes an anti-Netanyahu group called “One Voice,” which has rented offices in Israel.  Reportedly funded by liberal American donors, the campaign team is suspiciously led by Obama’s 2012 national field director Jeremy Bird.

WND provides an in-depth report on Bird, who is “taking his wildly successful Chicago-esque, Alinsky brand of community organizing to Tel Aviv,” where the field specialist has been making headlines for his paid consultancy to V15, an Israeli organization working to defeat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu” in the March 17, General Election.

The back story to Obama’s double-standard  manner of just “doing business” is jaw-droppingly deceptive.


Is civilized world at war with radicalized Islam?

February 8, 2015

Obama claims “99.9 PERCENT of MUSLIMS” REJECT TERROR

CNN’s FAREED ZAKARIA: Lindsey Graham says that he’s bothered by the fact that you won’t admit that we’re in a religious war. There are others who say that the White House takes pains to avoid using the term “Islamic terrorists.”  So my question to you is, are we in a war with radical Islam? 

BARACK OBAMA: You know, I think that the way to understand this is there is an element growing out of Muslim communities in certain parts of the world that have perverted the religion, have embraced a nihilistic, violent, almost medieval interpretation of Islam. And they are doing damage in a lot of countries around the world. 

But it is absolutely true that I reject a notion that somehow that creates a religious war because the overwhelming majority of Muslims reject that interpretation of Islam. They don’t even recognize it as being Islam. And I think that for us to be successful in fighting this scourge, it’s very important for us to align ourselves with the 99.9 percent of Muslims who are looking for the same thing we’re looking for. Order, peace, prosperity. 

And so I don’t, I don’t quibble with labels. I think we all recognize that this is a particular problem that has roots in Muslim communities. And that the Middle East and South Asia are….it’s very ground zero for us needing to win back hearts and minds particularly when it comes to young people. But I think we do ourselves a disservice in this fight if we are not taking into account the fact that the overwhelming majority of Muslims reject this ideology.

 Obama concludes the interview with this self-delusional thought:

“I am very confident that America is stronger, more prosperous, safer and more influential today than when I took office.”

Here’s another view from conservative pundit Ben Shapiro, who calls the tiny radical Muslim minority a myth. “We’re above 800 million Muslims radicalized, more than half the Muslims on Earth. That’s not a minority. That’s now a majority.” Shapiro cited the work of the Pew Research Center in his analysis. Shapiro is an editor-at-large with the conservative website Breitbart.com


Obama terrorism disconnect shown in press conference, poll

January 30, 2015

Nearly 50% say Obama downplays threat from Islamic terrorists

White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz embarrassingly attempted to respond to a simple question posed by ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl during a White House press conference Wednesday. When Schultz described the Taliban as just an “armed insurgency,” and not a “terrorist organization” like ISIS, an astonished Karl asked,  “You don’t think the Taliban’s a terrorist group?”

In an exchange between the two on a possible Jordanian prisoner swap with ISIS forces, Karl asked Schultz how that government’s actions differ from the United States’ 2014 release of Gitmo prisoners with the Taliban in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

WH spokesman Schultz struggled to answer, obviously trying to recall administration talking points on the subject: “I don’t think that the Taliban, um… uh…the Taliban is an armed insurgency, this was the winding down of the war in Afghanistan and that’s why this arrangement was dealt.”

 This latest Fox News poll points to an overwhelming 84 percent of American voters surveyed who think it is at least somewhat likely Islamic terrorists will try to launch an attack on U.S. soil soon. That includes half —- 50 percent —- who say “very” likely. A scant 15 percent of voters think the country is safer since Obama became president.

The poll asks voters why they think Obama doesn’t use terms like radical Islam or Islamic terrorism. While 14 percent say it’s because he doesn’t think the terrorist threat is directly connected to Islam, most (70 percent) think there is another reason. The poll did not ask what the other reasons might be. 


AZ Republic roughs up Jeff Flake in lover’s spat

January 26, 2015

Hollywood divorces are sensational news though they occur with enough regularity to render them humdrum. There’s always a peroxide blonde dumper or dumpee grabbing the headlines.

When the split occurs on the political front and the dumper is the state’s newspaper of record, the news is even more compelling. In this case the blonde is Sen. Jeff Flake who is getting something far less than the royal treatment from the Arizona Republic —– not once, but twice, within 24 hours.

On Saturday Jan. 24, the newspaper drew a parallel between Flake and Obama in a report that must have sent Flake reeling even more than the disapproval he received at the statutory state GOP meeting where Flake and McCain were greeted with boos and catcalls from the Republican elected state committeemen. The article is derisively headlined, Flake sides with Obama on Iran and Cuba.

From the report:

U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, the Foreign Relations committee’s ranking Democrat, ripped Obama administration “quotes” as sounding like “talking points that come straight out of Tehran and it feeds to the Iranian narrative of victimization when they are the ones with original sin, an illicit nuclear-weapons program going back over the course of 20 years that they are unwilling to come clean on.”

But Flake said he supports the ongoing negotiations and believes the United States should do whatever it can to ensure Iran makes good on its promise. “I’m fine with imposing even harsher sanctions if the negotiations fall apart, or if Iran doesn’t live up to its agreement, but while these negotiations are going on, I think we ought to support them,” Flake said.

Flake was irrationally speaking of the terror-sponsoring nation that nurtures anti-America hatred, while working to build a nuclear arsenal.

 Flake also is a GOP fan of Obama’s effort to normalize relations with Communist Cuba, a plan opposed by many Cuban Americans. Sen. Marco Rubio, the son of naturalized Cuban immigrants  said, “Obama gave Castro virtually everything the U.S. president could and got no concessions in the way of guarantees for more democracy, free speech or human rights. This is what happens when you send a speech-writer to negotiate with a tyrant.”

Sunday’s editorial was equally scathing. It ran with the headline, Jeff Flake is now part of the immigration problem. The “editorial board,” sounding a whole lot like a solo Linda Valdez offering, opens with this tidbit:

“Arizona’s junior senator once tried to solve our broken system. How, he’s just feeding the GOP base.”

 “A new session has started, and now Flake is co-sponsoring a hard-nosed bill, the Secure the Border First Act of 2015. It would prescribe where fences must be built and what other infrastructure must be added.”

The AZ República has had plate-throwing tantrums with its honey-haired honey before as evidenced by this split in March 2011, where editorialist Doug MacEachern called Flake’s pre-election change of heart on legalizing millions of illegal aliens “jarring.”  Flake was declared a mere “politician “ —- no longer a statesman”— for emulating his mentor John McCain’s campaign border epiphany during his last senatorial campaign.

 Count on the fact this separation is just a lover’s spat. The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) and Jeff the Flake will be cuddling again soon.


American ‘diplomacy’ sinks to embarrassing new low

January 17, 2015

John Kerry arrives a week late with “friend” James Taylor

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry finally arrived in Paris. As he met with France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and President Francois Hollande to offer condolences on the barbaric terrorist attacks that killed 17 people in Paris last week, Kerry brought along an over-the-hill rocker “friend.”

Barack Obama, whose calendar was bare, was noticeably missing when 40+ world leaders assembled in Paris to participate in a unity march following the slaughters. Millions of people took to the streets in expressions of solidarity in the wake of a series of Islamic terrorist attacks (video) in France.

Appearing on stage with Kerry, James Taylor performed a rendition of Carole King’s “You’ve Got a Friend” in an odd tribute to the victims of the bloody carnage.

Before arriving in Paris, Kerry said of the trip, “My visit to France is basically to share a big hug for Paris and express the affection of the American people for France and for our friends there who have been through a terrible time.”

Attempting to deflect criticism aimed at the out of touch Barack Obama, was Jimmy Carter, who vies with Obama for the “Worst U.S. President Ever“ award. Carter said, “President Obama’s just come back from vacation, and I know how it is when you’ve been gone for a week or two, I think he’s probably got a lot on his desk.”

Many Americans will remember it was French President Jacque Chirac who was the first foreign Head of State to arrive at the White House with a personal message of support and condolences after the radical Islamic-inflicted September 11, 2001 carnage that killed nearly 3000 on American soil.

This abysmal snub by Barack Obama is not only rude, it is embarrassing.

Shortly after Carter’s inane comments, the Wall Street Journal reported that Obama regretted his decision not to send a top White House official to represent the U.S. at the Paris march. The entire episode presented a conundrum for Obama who still can’t bring himself to acknowledge that the ongoing heinous acts of terrorism each have an Islamic jihadist component. That was likely the reason he couldn’t bring himself to personally attend the march with the other heads of state.

It’s past time for Americans to admit what we have taking up space in the Oval Office.
