Associated Press out of the BDS anti-Israel closet

August 16, 2019

This deceptive Associated Press headline, “Israel bans entry to outspoken US congresswomen,” should have read, “Israel bans entry to virulently anti-Semitic US congresswomen.”  The intentionally misleading word parsing clearly displays the media’s skewed bent, which it no longer attempts to conceal.

Far-left freshmen Democrats Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN), both Muslim members of congress, support the Palestinian-led BDS movement which advocates boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israeli businesses, products, universities and cultural institutions.

National Review recently headlined its revealing report:Omar to Introduce Resolution Declaring Support for Anti-Israel BDS Movement.” On Thursday Omar ludicrously accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of imposing a “Muslim ban,” declaring, “It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government.”

Arizona Sen. Martha McSally, who prior to retiring from the Air Force as a full Colonel, was deployed in the Middle East and supports President Trump’s resolve on the issue.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said his country is “open to critics and criticism,” noted that Tlaib and Omar’s itinerary for the trip “revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.”

Omar, who PJ Media reported engaged in a marriage with her own brother to perpetrate immigration and student loan fraud, irrationally stated, “Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected members of Congress.”

The women, members of what has been described as the congressional “Squad,” routinely refer to the sole democracy in the Middle East in the most derogatory of terms, and, for good measure, condemn President Trump. Omitted from their anti-Semitic tirade is the inconvenient fact that since the formation of the state of Israel in 1948, there have been Arabic members of the Knesset, the legislative body similar to the U.S. Congress. They have been Muslim, Druze, and Christian.

The U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, endorsed the decision to ban Tlaib and Omar, saying Israel “has every right to protect its borders” against promoters of boycotts.

Pro-Trump Miss Michigan stripped of title

July 20, 2019

Trump-hating Congressional radicals get a pass

If you need proof of double standards and political correctness run amok, look no further than Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu the state’s entry in the Miss World competition. Zhu, 20, a University of Michigan student was informed of her ouster after pageant officials deemed the content of her twitter account, “offensive, insensitive and inappropriate.”

The China-born beauty, studying political science, is also a supporter of President Trump, which no doubt lowers her in the esteem of pageant officials, school administrators and fellow students.

Last year while a freshman at the University of Central Florida and tweeting under the name Political Kathy, she posted this regarding a campus booth encouraging students to try on a hijab in celebration of World Hijab Day.

A member of the Muslim Student Association, working the booth, wrote, “Let’s get this girl expelled.” Though Zhu wasn’t expelled in Florida, the Michigan pageant officials got the job done on another level.

No such efforts are underway for radical leftist U.S. Reps.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) who have embraced being identified as “The Squad.” They not only brazenly clash with their party’s leadership, but routinely express anti-American views and are openly anti-Semitic. As an example, in 2016 Ilhan Omar, a Somalian immigrant, asked a judge for leniency for nine men who tried to join ISIS terrorists and kill Americans. Just days ago she referred to President Trump as a “fascist” with no admonishment from Democrat leaders.

The Washington Times headlines this report, “Rep. Ilhan Omar vows to be ‘nightmare’ for Trump.”

Breitbart News exposes Reps. Omar and Tlaib introduction of H.R. 496, a resolution aimed at supporting the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, targeting Israel, the Middle East’s only democracy. They preposterously likened the hateful bill to the Boston Tea Party and the Montgomery bus boycott. Most offensive of all is the fact that they get away with it.


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?”


Displacing US workers with imports is lunacy

July 9, 2019

Our interest was piqued Monday by a comment on SRAZ linking to this Breitbart report. To call it disturbing would be the height of understatement. Cloak and dagger mysteries have more light directed on them than HR.1044. (Text).

This list, with Democrats first, followed by go-along to get-along Republicans, details who signed on to U.S. House Leftist Zoe Lofgren’s Green Card Giveaway Act. The bill authorizes expansion of the importation of college-educated Green Card workers, mainly from India, who will displace American citizens with college degrees and new grads who have trained and gone into debt obtaining their educations.

We expect to see AZ Democrats Ruben Gallego, Ann Kirkpatick, Tom O’Halleran and Greg Stanton signing on to this unprincipled legislation, though surprisingly Raul Grijalva‘s name was missing. But seeing Arizona Republicans Debbie Lesko and David Schweikert, canoodling on this bill with the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortz, Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler was jarring.

Jessica M. Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies for Washington based Center for Immigration Studies, notes “House Democrats reportedly are trying to pass the bill on the Consensus Calendar, which allows the bill to pass on a fast track without a hearing or rule for amendments.” The bullet points on her brief but informative fact sheet, are must reads.

Jon Miano, writing for CIS, provides an overview, referring to the “Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act,” as misnamed — calling it out as “dishonest.”

The vote was scheduled to take place Monday. Attempting to research who voted aye or nay dead-ended. Pertinent information is under wraps.

Earlier this year, Rep. Zoe Lofgren and Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced the Agricultural Worker Program Act (H.R. 641) intended to “shield farm workers from deportation and put them on a path toward earned legal status and eventual citizenship.”

Democrats view illegal aliens as a powerful voting bloc, which is why they are in the forefront of normalizing their illegitimate status, with sanctuary cities and offering them free health care and taxpayer-funded social benefits — as if they needed inducements.  This amounts to unsustainable lunacy.

In 2017, the fiscal burden of illegal immigration was factored at $216 Billion yearly in this report compiled by the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

On average the U.S. generously admits a million legal immigrants yearly. We have a right, as well as an obligation to our own citizens, to control our borders and determine who enters. The recent caravans of hundred of thousands of Central Americans invaders given access by Mexico, only stopped when President Trump threatened imposing tariffs against Mexican imports. He was widely assailed by the left for his stance, but it worked. Now congress is engaging in a devious end run.


Major banks suffering Trump Derangement Syndrome

BofA joins Wells Fargo and Chase protesting border detention centers — preferring invasion

Families Belong Together is an open borders coalition founded in the conviction that the United Sates of America is ripe for the taking. Our sovereign borders mean nothing and our citizens should not only welcome illegal invaders, but financially support them.

The fact that we welcome a million, eager to assimilate, legal immigrants each year is irrelevant.

The anti-Trump organization has latched on to “separation of families at the border” as its defining issue, referring to it as a crisis. They claim to want to reunite families, through the implementation of “comprehensive immigration reform,” which in reality, as Sen. Ted Cruz pointed out in this interview with Rush Limbaugh, is rechristened “amnesty.” Those three words are all too familiar to Arizonans, who well remember John McCain and Jon Kyl’s alignment with the most liberal Democrats on the issue. They worked with leftists from Ted Kennedy to Gang of Eight members, including Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin and Robert Menendez. Single-term Sen. Jeff Flake replaced retired Kyl, and pushed ever harder for amnesty for illegals. Flake’s political career, based in Trump hatred and amnesty imploded.

Two of the largest private prison companies, CoreCivic and GeoGroup, have been contracted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to manage some of the detention centers housing the colossal numbers of illegals who have caravanned through Mexico to our border. Rick Moran writing for PJ Media reports nearly 90 percent of illegals fail to show up for court hearings.

Numerous radically left organizations, including Socialist George Soros’ MoveOn, the National Domestic Workers Alliance, MomsRising, Presente.org, In The Public Interest, Little Sis, Color of Change, Make the Road New York, AVAAZ, ACRE, Enlace, the Center for Popular Democracy, Freedom Cities, ROC United, Candide Group and others have joined Families Belong Together pressuring Wells Fargo and JP Morgan Chase banks to stop financing Geo Group and CoreCivic. They also want to abolish ICE, a new mantra of the left.

Wells Fargo and Chase were easy pushovers, Now they’ve been joined by Bank of America. These financial institutions have made it clear they prefer hindering President Trump’s Herculean efforts at national security. The banks bizarrely support the invasion of our country in preference to their American customers. This is a partial listing of other federally insured banks. Notice the banks that align with illegal aliens also stick it to their customers with the lowest interest rates. 

According to this most recent World Bank report, illegal aliens and actual immigrants sent a record $53.4 billion in American currency — tax-free remittances — back to Mexico and Central America in 2018 in a massive transfer of wealth siphoned out of the USA. That’s more than double the estimated cost of building a secure border barrier on the U.S./Mexico border. These numbers exclude remittances sent to other countries.

Taxing those billions of outgoing American dollars should begin immediately, with those monies earmarked to pay for the wall.


Raw deceit keeps local columnist Montini employed

June 24, 2019

When one lies for a living, telling the truth doesn’t come easy. Being employed when colleagues have been given their walking papers in systematic cutbacks, no doubt presents a conundrum.  It’s good to have a salary, though tough to know former co-workers are facing hardships.  But disgorging odious spew three days a week is what keeps the bills paid. And if you’re E. J. Montini, writing columns for the Arizona Republic newspaper, bile automatically erupts by way of your leftist politics.  Dishonesty? That’s your stock in trade.

You’ve hung on longer by repeating falsehoods and denigrating American patriots who were repeatedly elected to office by Arizona voters.  Revulsion for Republicans oozes from your every pore.

The headline of Montini’s recent column contains the words “Operation Wetback,” relating to a mass deportation of illegal aliens in the 1950’s. The program was put into effect during the Eisenhower administration with the support of the Mexican government, facing a national worker shortage, since a majority of the illegals crossing the border were young men. It was only later when the Mexican government realized the value of reparations, bolstering its economy by over $30 billion each year, that it worked to facilitate the invasion.

The fascinating thing about liars is the ease with which they spin tall tales. Nowhere in the column is Pres. Eisenhower mentioned. Known as “Ike” he was the popular, two-term president who was a five-star general in the U.S. Army during World War II and served as the first supreme commander of NATO. He had previously been president of Columbia University.

Most assuredly not a bigot, in 1957 he ordered federal troops to Little Rock, Arkansas to protect nine black children integrating into a public school — the first time the US federal government ordered troops in the South since the end of the Civil War.

Though Eisenhower was mysteriously absent from Montini’s screed, President Donald Trump was maligned, hammered and battered for desiring to halt the unfettered invasion of our country by illegals. The United States welcomes approximately a million legal immigrants each year with the reasonable expectation of assimilation, which is too few and too restrictive for the ethically challenged E.J.

Also worthy of bashing are former Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce, who sponsored SB 1070 (actual title: “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act”), and former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose deputies enforced the law, signed by Gov. Jan Brewer in 2010. Major portions of the law were later gutted by a federal court judge.

What do Trump, Pearce and Arpaio have in common? They are all men of unquestioned patriotism, principled courage and a deep commitment to the United States of America.

Those patriotic traits rankle Montini, who robotically tailors his vacuous verbal vomit to fit the newspaper’s agenda — facts be damned. He’s earning his keep.


AZ border towns become war zones…

…as Democrats prefer to impeach our President and leave southern border vulnerable

Tucson’s KVOA News 4 provides the grim statistics of gun violence perpetrated by members of drug cartels in the communities of Naco and Agua Prieta, Sonora, both of which are adjacent to Douglas, Arizona — located in Cochise County — in the southeastern-most corner of the state. View map below.

According to the report, a bloody gun battle in the border town of Agua Prieta claimed the lives of nearly a dozen people this past week. Six people were reportedly killed Friday with an unknown number wounded.

This high level advisory was posted by the Douglas Police Department.

Cochise County Sheriff Mark J. Dannels expresses “serious concern” regarding the ongoing violence, stating the “deputies are working with local, state and federal partners to monitor the situation.”

This is not happening in Afghanistan.  This war is on our southern border. Arizonans need to acknowledge that congressional Democrat inaction on providing funding for a wall is making all Americans vulnerable. Instead of providing security, Dems are instead focused on the politically motivated impeachment of our president, whom they claim engaged in “Russian collusion,” disproved by the Mueller Report, which entered in public record:

“The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

Yet this old saw, not border security, is the Democrats 2020 campaign issue.

Bill Clinton, 49, at the time, was impeached and disbarred for both lying and suborning perjury, but never removed from the Oval Office where he cavorted with 22-year-old White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.  He was elevated to icon status and his scandal-plagued, deceitful wife was endorsed for president in 2016 by the failing, far-left Arizona Republic newspaper.
