Pres. Trump praised for UN speech; AZ Republic ignores it

September 20, 2017

A classic study in contrasts: News vs. Blather

Though Pres. Trump won international acclaim for his strong United Nations speech Tuesday, you’d never know it from reading the far left, Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic.  The fact that the president’s speech didn’t rate any coverage is telling.  When he excels on the World stage, the fish wrap passing itself off as a disseminator of news, is unable to deal with the accolades he receives. 

The AZ Republic opted instead to devote Page One to its “exclusive analysis” elevating its open borders vagueness and pretzel-like contortions to new heights as it concludes, “The border wall would disrupt lives and force seizures of thousands of properties at untold cost.”

Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton praised the speech, declaring it the “best speech of the Trump presidency.”

“The only way to deal with the quagmire that the U.N. represents on so many issues is to be direct. For Americans, plain speaking is still a virtue, and there is a lot of plain speaking in that speech,” Bolton said during an interview on “Happening Now.” 

“This was the best speech of the Trump presidency in my view. I think he was as clear and direct as it’s possible to be.”

An acknowledged expert on the United Nations, Bolton credited Trump’s tough talk against North Korea and Iran as highlights of his speech and said such comments were unprecedented at the U.N.

“I think it’s safe to say in the entire history of the United Nations, there has never been a more straightforward criticism of the behavior, the unacceptable behavior or member states,” Bolton said. “I think these are about as clear an indication as a president can make that he’s not going to live with the kinds of half measures and compromises that frankly for 25 years have marked American policy and led us to the present desperate situation.”

September 11, 2001: We will not forget

September 11, 2017

Sixteen years ago today, 2,973 people were murdered by jihadist terrorists who commandeered two commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City. Another crashed into the Pentagon. The death toll includes 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers rushed the cockpit in an attempt to apprehend the hijackers.

Along with our American citizens, people from 90 other countries were viciously slaughtered in the attacks committed by Islamo-fascist extremists. The lives of 343 firefighters and paramedics and  73 law enforcement officers were callously cut short as they heroically responded to the single deadliest incident in the history of the United States.

These  monsters, here on easily exploitable, often fake, foreign student visas, were able to commit these barbaric crimes against Americans on our own soil because those we have elected to represent us  have failed miserably in securing our porous national border and actually enforcing our laws.

Business Insider’s 2015 edition has 20 riveting photos from that catastrophic day.

Who would have thought that within a few short years after the horror perpetrated by Islamic jihadists who sought to brutalize us, a U.S. President — Barack Hussein Obama — would submissively bow to Muslim royals, and officially recognize the Muslim Brotherhood — a terrorist organization with familial ties to Al-Qaeda and Hamas, while systematically attempting to destroy the bedrock founding principles of our country? His election stands as a testament to apathetic, under-educated Americans and political correctness.

The November 2016 election changed that dynamic. President Donald Trump understands that Americans do not bow to foreign political or religious leaders. Trump won the presidency in large part on his promise to secure our border.

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have been hammering Texas and Florida with raging winds and torrential rains, disrupting lives and causing damage in multi $billions, a setback for the wall construction, but few doubt it will be accomplished.

In the meantime, teach your children and grandchildren the facts of September 11th. They are not getting this important information in school. It doesn’t fit the left’s ‘celebration of diversity’ playbook.

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum can be seen here  It’sTeach + Learnpages are critically important since too many young adults today are lacking basic information about the single deadliest incident in the history of the United States. On this day of remembrance, CNN provides Terror Attacks Facts.

Guns, ammo ordered confiscated by Gov. of Virgin Islands

September 7, 2017

Using Hurricane Irma as an contrivance for infringing on Second Amendment rights, Kenneth Mapp, Governor of the American Virgin Islands and also the territory’s Commander-in-Chief of its National Guard, has ordered the Guard’s Adjutant General, Col. Deborah Howell, to seize privately owned arms and ammunition. 

In this peculiar letter* filled with pomposity, verbosity, and frequent references to “me,“ Mapp cites numerous titles and codes as well as “Rules of Force” for this “emergency mission.”

Mapp wrote that the order was issued under authority of Virgin Islands Code, Title 23, Chapter 19,  and insisted it is necessary “to maintain the health, welfare, and safety of the people of the Virgin Islands.” The adjutant general is given the right to “take whatever actions she considers necessary to carry out the assigned missions.”

Mull that one over.

The governor issues big orders and until a “compromise” with the legislature causing him to vacate his $12,500 a month rental estate in 2015, he also lived big. No shrinking violet, Mapp maintains a  grand view of the scope of his authority. When the senate refused to confirm his 11 cabinet members, he simply redesignated and renominated each of them as acting commissioners.

Mapp might well think the hurricane already touched down when he faces the force of the NRA.  Chris Cox,  NRA-ILA executive director, makes it clear that the NRA is ready to use a lawsuit to stop Gov. Mapp’s order:

“People need the ability to protect themselves during times of natural disaster. This dangerous order violates the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens and puts their lives at risk,” Cox said.

“When 911 is non-existent and law enforcement personnel are overwhelmed with search-and-rescue missions and other emergency duties, law-abiding American citizens must be able to protect their families and loved ones. The NRA is prepared to pursue legal action to halt Gov. Mapp’s dangerous and unconstitutional order.”

Cox’ full statement can be read in NRA Condemns U.S. Virgin Island Firearm Confiscation Plan.

Jeff Flake: The image polishing begins anew

August 11, 2017

Large swaths of the world are in chaos. Islamic terrorists are committed to the slaughter of innocents with the ultimate goal of taking over the planet. A North Korean madman is threatening nuclear destruction. The leftist World Economic Forum cites catastrophic weather or the reliable fallback of Climate Change as the ‘most pressing’ risk looming in our future.

But the Arizona Republic sees things through a different lens. Now that it has satisfied its blood lust in relentlessly pursuing former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, it has other political fish to fry to fulfill its liberal agenda. 

Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) a Republicrat who spent decades in Washington colluding with Democrats, is suffering from what his Mayo Clinic doctors refer to as an “aggressive form of brain cancer.”  His days of negatively impacting the political scene are nearing an end. His kiss off to conservatives was casting the deciding vote against repealing Obamacare, a vengeful finger in the eye to President Donald Trump who he refused to support during the 2016 election.

 His like-minded junior senate partner, Jeff Flake, has been taking pre-election heat from every corner for his arrogant attacks on the president in particular and conservatives in general. This week he was chastised by Republican National Committee chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, for his skewering of Republicans in his new 140-page pamphlet being called a book, carrying a title that was previously used by Barry Goldwater in 1960. 

Jeff Flake, not known for having an original thought, will be facing voters in 2018.  The newspaper is worried enough about keeping this reckless open borders, amnesty supporter in place that the morning edition ignores all of the turmoil to strategically place him above-the-fold, with the appropriate headline, “A blaze’s aftermath.”  He is shown surveying the scene of the early summer Goodwin forest fire in the conservative voter base of Yavapai County. with an accompanying three-page article. The task is a major undertaking since the aptly named Flake holds the distinction of having the lowest approval rating of any senator in the 100-member body.

Jeff Flake: Reaping what he has sown sheds additional light on this deceptive RINO.


Not so benign business group behind deceptive ads

August 9, 2017

Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) and Jeff the Flake have been longtime supporters of trade pacts that harm American workers

The ads are showing up on television with regularity. They begin by saying the economy is down, Americans are out of work and the tax system is “broken.” That word piqued our interest since it is routinely used by those on the left or the amnesty promoting establishment elite — typified by members of the Chambers of Commerce — illegal alien profiteers, who claim our immigration system is “broken.”

Conveniently ignored is the fact that the Dow has repeatedly broken all time record highs since the beginning of the year and unemployment is down, coinciding with President Trump taking office.

Sure enough, the same word is used by a group calling itself the Business Roundtable,  purchaser of the ads.  Its immigration page after cutting through the baloney —serves as a beacon illuminating its barely concealed agenda.

 It also contends the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) will “open markets for U.S. exports and support U.S. growth and jobs.” This unsavory deal was made by Barack Obama. President Donald Trump withdrew from it within days of his inaugural. His move was no surprise since he spoke of his intentions as he campaigned, saying the suspect deal would send jobs overseas and benefit special interests rather than American workers. Voters listened and enthusiastically supported the business titan turned presidential candidate.

The Business Roundtable, using Obama double talk, calls the TPP “a modern trade agreement for a modern economy that removes foreign tariffs (taxes) and other trade barriers and sets strong and enforceable rules for free and fair trade, which will make American companies, workers and farmers more competitive in the international market.”

Believe that, and we’ve got a bridge to sell you.

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin’s fact-filled commentary on the topic,Why America hates the GOP-Obamatrade deal,” written two years ago was right on target then and remains so today.

It doesn’t take a seer to realize the Business Roundtable is a liberal farce. On Tuesday, it sent this letter extolling the virtues of NAFTA to U.S. Trade Representative, Ambassador Robert Lighthizer; Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross; Secretary of State Rex Tillerson; Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin and Director of the National Economic Council Gary Cohn. Pay particular attention to the list of 108 signers.

Regardless of their shallow words, the business signers want nothing more than to lead American workers off the economic cliff as they push for massive increases in cheap foreign labor, including imported tech workers from India and China over highly educated, highly skilled American workers who are forced to train their replacements.

Malkin concludes her enlightening commentary with this bold question, “What part of “Stop selling out America!” does D.C. not understand?

But, we’ve saved the best for the lastThe Guardian reveals John McCain received $51,700 in the first quarter of 2015 from business interests desiring the TPP be fast-tracked. He later expressed disappointment when President Trump withdrew from the pact. And Obama’s willing toady Jeff Flake? Despite the American people’s overwhelming objection to it, he said Congress is going to have to suck it up and ratify the agreement because “it simply must be done,” even in the face of hostile opposition to trade along the campaign trail.

Is this the guy you’d send back to the senate in 2018?


Charlatan Jeff Flake hurls insults, trolls for Soros’ $$

August 3, 2017

Breitbart reports that Jeff Flake — now out of the closet as a craven liberal — readily embraces being labeled a “globalist.” In his book with the filched title, Flake goes long on an explanation laden with linguistic and statistical gyrations to justify his leftward lurch. His ghost writer concludes with a dash of flaky bravado, “Given the alternatives, I’ll take the globalist moniker, thank you.”

As you read Tony Lee’s report, keep some facts in mind:

Flake doesn’t mind insulting conservative Republicans or the president of the United States, who he loudly proclaimed he would not vote for.

Immediately after the votes were counted after his first senate race, Flake joined his mentor John McCain attempting to ram through yet another congressional amnesty scam with Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, other prominent liberals and Republicrats known as the Gang of Eight. Jeff Flake and John McCain  (click links) each ran as border hawks, quickly reverting back to their shameful job destroying amnesty of illegals position.

Multibillionaire George Soros, the Socialist one-worlder with a massive agenda to radically change the U.S.  Justice system, has shoveled $millions to left-wing candidates. McCain and Hillary Clinton have been longtime recipients of his largesse. Jeff Flake, currently sitting atop a mountain of lobbyist and special interest cash, wants even more. As he continually denigrates the very base from whom he expect to pull votes, money spent on deceptive advertising can buy enough campaign induced amnesia to make them forget what they were angry about.  It’s a political take on an old magicians trick known as ‘misdirection.’

When it’s all boiled down to its essence, know this: Jeff Flake regards with suspicion those of us who voted for Donald Trump for president. He refers to us derogatorily as ‘populists’ rather than Republicans, and though he has proven otherwise over again, he calls himself a conservative, since that term garners votes from those who aren’t paying attention to what he actually is.

 Flake’s latest hammer is calling those of us who desire a secure border “xenophobic,” though we are not fearful, just fed up. He has also hurled the fabricated word “nativist” beloved by Democrats, for being desirerous of wanting to retain our uniquely American history and language — both of which have been embraced by actual immigrants who gratefully assimilate into American culture.

Keeping his campaign promise to the American people, President Trump is taking decisive action against illegal immigration. On Wednesday, along with sponsoring Sens. Tom Cotton and David Purdue, Trump announced support of the RAISE Act, a Senate bill that prioritizes English speaking immigrants who demonstrate job skills and will contribute to our country —  meriting editorial praise from the Washington Times.

It’s all happening despite Jeff Flake withholding his support of the president and engaging in puerile name calling.

It’s time Arizona Republicans return the favor and withhold our votes from Jeff Flake.

 

 


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.
