Diversity: Our strength or demise?

September 16, 2018

Hyphenated Americans display dual allegiances, lack full commitment to the United States

Today SRAZ is taking Patrick J. Buchanan up on his invitation to share his columns.  It was difficult choosing which one to use, but because we are Tucker Carlson fans, the decision went in favor of his displaying the temerity to inquire of the left, “How, precisely, is diversity our strength? Since you’ve made this our new national motto, please be specific.”

The question was raised after he played clips of Democrat politicians reciting what has become an fundamental ‘truth’ of modern liberalism.

You’ll findThe Unpardonable Heresy of Tucker Carlson,” to be worthy of your time and attention.

This video excerpt of Tucker Carlson’s show features startling demographic numbers. In 1990, the small community of Storm Lake, Iowa had a mere 1.1% foreign born population. Today over half of the residents don’t speak English at home.

Carlson interviews U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, (R-PA), the former mayor of Hazelton, Pennsylvania.  In 2000, less than 2% of the population was Hispanic. Today, fewer than 20 years later, Hazelton is majority Hispanic, thanks to mass illegal immigration.

Hamtramck, Michigan had two Bangladeshi residents in 1990. Today the city is majority Muslim.  

Diversity is obviously not our strength, since we see it overpowering the predominant culture without any input from the citizens whose families have resided in these communities for generations — many with immigrant family roots themselves.  The difference lies in the fact that previous generations of immigrants came to the U.S. legally, processed through Ellis Island (from 1892 – 1954), and were grateful for the opportunity to be Americans. They learned English, prioritized education for their children and accepted our nation’s history as their own. That adaptation was known as Americanization — unfortunately a passé concept today.

Commemorating Sept. 11, 2001: Teach your children the truth

September 11, 2018

 

Politically correct schools are not teaching about this carnage

Today marks the 17th year since 2,973 people were murdered by terrorists who commandeered two commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City. Another airliner 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.

 Along with our American citizens, people from 90 other countries were viciously slaughtered in the attacks committed by Islamo-fascist extremists.

These monsters,* here on easily exploitable foreign student visas, were able to commit this evil against Americans on our own soil because our government deplorably failed to enforce our borders, laws, and national sovereignty. This malfeasance has continued. Only President Trump, who ran and was elected on his commitment to a border wall, has  made this issue a resonating theme.

Far-left AZ Democrat David Garcia is currently campaigning for governor on his opposition to both a wall and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which he has stated his intent to dismantle.

In these times where striking unionist teachers walk out on over 800,000 Arizona students for a week, the obligation falls on parents and grandparents to teach 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 and focus on “Islamophobia.”

Yet even left-of-center NPR acknowledges, according to one survey, only about 20 states include anything in depth about the events of that fateful day in their high school social studies curriculum. And when they are taught, it’s often through a narrow lens. Education Week an educrat publication headlines: “Majority of States’ Standards Don’t Mention 9/11.”

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum can be seen here It’s Teach + Learn pages are critically important since too many young adults today are abysmally lacking basic information about the single deadliest incident in the history of the United States.

Philosopher George Santayana is noted for saying, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Today’s PC educrats reject his wisdom.

 *H/T Creeping Shiria depicts the murderous Muslim extremists, referring to the barbarous hijackers as the “Magnificent 19.”


Independence Day: How would our Founders view NY election?

July 4, 2018

DNC Chairman Tom Perez says socialism is the future of Democrat Party

Today we honor those 56 brave men who had the vision and strength of character to challenge oppressive authority and affix their signatures to the Declaration of Independence, asserting our freedom. They did so at great personal risk.

 Before signing the Declaration our Founders included this memorable line:

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Fast forward from these 1776 defenders of liberty to 2018:

New York Democrats witnessed an unexpected election upset last week when U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley, who hasn’t faced a primary opponent in 14 years, was defeated by self-described “democratic socialist,” 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  She was endorsed by extreme leftist MoveOn, part of the far-reaching network funded by Socialist billionaire George Soros. His group is able to amass radical, disruptive mobs in record time.

Responding to the stunning defeat, the chairman of the Democrat National Party, Tom Perez, said socialist candidates are the “future” of the party.

The Washington Examiner reports Perez told “The Bill Press Show” that Ocasio-Cortez symbolizes where the party is headed.

Perez singled out Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders ally, former NAACP leader Ben Jealous, a socialist running for governor in Maryland, as examples of “spectacular” candidates the party believes represents its future.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) exposes Perez in this article:Tom Perez’s Troubled History With Ethics & Honesty.

Memorial Day gratitude from Pres. Trump and us all

May 28, 2018

Memorial Day is set aside to pay tribute to America’s military personnel — and their families — who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.

President Donald Trump is doing just that, replacing platitudes with action.

Take time to read his White House statement: This Memorial Day, a Win for America’s Veterans. It takes only 3 minutes to read, but the inspiring message will stay with you.

The president outlines the 26-page VA MISSION Act of 2018 issued by Congressman Phil Roe, M.D., (R-TN) chairman of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, which achieves five important objectives for our nation’s veterans:

  1. Consolidates and strengthens the VA’s community care programs;
  2. Funds the existing Veterans Choice program to ensure veterans continue to receive care through the Choice program until the new, consolidated Veterans Community Care Program takes effect;
  3. Creates new flexibilities to aid the VA in managing its infrastructure portfolio through an Asset and Infrastructure review process;
  4. Expands the Caregivers program to include eligible veterans from all eras of service;
  5. Strengthens the VA’s workforce.

Marking his second Memorial Day as commander in chief with an 11:00 am (ET) visit to Arlington National Cemetery, President Trump will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and salute those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country with a speech commemorating their heroic actions.


Major reason to steer clear of deceptive AZ Republic

May 27, 2018

A key component of the Arizona Republic’s stock in trade is the ubiquitous use of weaselly equivocators, “could, might, may,” in incendiary headlines.

Saturday’s edition provided this Page One example: ”Advocates say separation of migrant families could expose children to abuse by border agents.”

Separation of families is a phony ploy. They can all return home together.  Exactly when did border agents morph into child molesters? This is another bogus contrivance from the newspaper increasingly known as the Arizona Repukelick for obvious reasons.

A quick perusal of the accompanying story, complete with an oversize photo of a morose mother staring directly into the camera, attempts to go straight for the heartstrings with the tale of a 20-year-old Guatemalan mother and her infant daughter, the product of rape, we are told, to give more heft to the saga, who are “seeking asylum” in the United States. The cadres of illegal advocates who “represent” invaders have now embraced a new ploy, that children could be exposed to abuse by border agents. By now, most of us are too steeped in “Push 1 for Spanish” to be ready customers for the despicable maneuver.

The Hillary Clinton endorsing, John McCain-worshiping newspaper never deviates from calling illegal alien invaders of our country,migrants.The United States is not San Juan Capistrano, and foreign nationals are not temporarily migrating swallows, who wing it 6,000 miles back to Goya, Argentina when the season ends.

America accepts over a million legal immigrants yearly. We welcome educated people with skills that will benefit our nation as they assimilate to our culture, heritage and language.  Our cities and states are not acceptable repositories for the uneducated who rely on taxpayer funded benefits to exist.

When looking for news, readers want facts, not iffy suppositions that push a liberal agenda. They will get plenty of agenda in the local newspaper. Facts take a back seat.

In 2013 we wrote, “Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press,” referring to the main character in George Orwell’s book “1984,” which described the manipulation of language. The intentional misuse by the left-wing media is even more egregious today. 


Dana Loesch: “NRA biggest defender of free speech” & crucial UPDATE

March 27, 2018

MUST READ UPDATE: 97-year-old former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens advocates repealing the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

With Second Amendment restrictionists maligning our constitutional rights and bellowing that guns are the culprits in mass shootings perpetrated by evil or mentality ill assassins, we bring you a voice of sanity.

“The NRA has been the biggest defender of free speech. I find it interesting that those individuals who simultaneously preach about free speech want to silence the speech of the millions of people who make up NRA membership.” –Dana Loesch

The NRA couldn’t have a more impassioned, articulate than Dana Loesch. Listening to her is always enlightening.

This linked video is when most of us first met Dana Loesch, in her national NRA role. It was an unforgettable introduction.

A few fast facts you might not have known:

Before seeing the light, Dana Loesch was once a registered Democrat, who worked on Bill Clinton’s second-term campaign. She and her music producer husband Chris Loesch, a Republican who influenced her politically and now manages her busy schedule, jointly home-school their two sons. An award winning investigative reporter, she has co-founded a tea party, worked as a radio talk show host and was appointed editor-in-chief for Big Journalism, part of the Breitbart network of conservative media. They are devout Christians. Although she endorsed Ted Cruz in the 2016 presidential primary, after President Trump’s election, she became a self described “passionate defender” of his presidency.

NRA Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, Wayne LaPierre, explains the NRA’s position on raising the age (video) for purchasers of firearms.

It was bound to happen. In a New York Times op-ed published today, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, a well concealed RINO appointed to the high court by Pres. Gerald Ford, urges the repeal of the Second Amendment. Born into privilege in 1920, Stevens was previously appointed to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals by Pres. Richard Nixon.

His bizarre lack of regard for our Constitution could be laid off to the fact that Stevens is 97-years-old. We can reasonably assume a surrogate wrote this commentary. Regardless of its origins, it is a disgraceful effort to undermine our nation‘s foundational underpinnings.

Stevens was 90 years of age when he retired. Rather than repealing the Second Amendment, Americans should revisit the wisdom of lifetime appointments for Supreme Court Justices. Call your members of congress.

This is what we’re up against.  Be vigilant, anJOIN the NRA today. We have few other protectors of our rights.
