Extremists incrementally transforming America

June 25, 2015

“We need to put the American flag down”

Few of us will forget the words uttered by presidential candidate Barack Obama days preceding the 2008 election. The foolish crowds, taught moral equivalency rather than American exceptionalism by liberal unionist teachers, cheered as he vowed,“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

Michelle Obama, who attended Princeton and Harvard Law School on scholarships, oddly acknowledged, “For the first time in my adult lifetime I’m really proud of my country.”  Not as widely publicized was this outlandish comment: “We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation….and he (Barack Obama) is prepared t do it.“

The offensive comments maligning America taken in stride then, have now assumed a renewed fervor. Political correctness reigns to such an extent that when a psychotic 9th grade dropout, citing a racist “manifesto” as his reason for mowing down nine black innocents in a South Carolina church Bible study group, people fall over themselves to jettison historic Civil War symbols that were an integral part of the landscape before his senseless massacre. Confederate flags have been removed from the shelves of major retailers.

Politicians and celebrities race to weigh in on the “vile” history of the flag, now vanishing from statehouses where it has flown in unity with Old Glory. Due to the despicable actions of a deranged 21-year-old, there are now efforts to dismantle statues depicting Civil War soldiers in parks and courthouse squares where many have stood for a century. The war between the states, where family loyalties were often divided, ended in 1865.   

Former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, a Democrat, is a lone voice as he encourages people to understand the “complicated history of the Civil War” as they call for the removal of the Confederate flag across the country. His statement can be read here.

What thinking Americans, seeing the national knee bent in supplication to political correctness, would have doubted that this demand would follow as hate monger and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan used the horrific slaughter to declare:

“I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag.”  His comments, made at a worship service,  were met with cheers and applause. He added, “Who are we fighting today? It’s the people that carry the American flag.”

Explosion of illegals: Nations fight crime, costs, loss of values, culture

June 20, 2015

5,000 illegals with criminal records released from custody in Arizona

Boosted by rising concerns over the cost of illegal immigration on Denmark’s welfare programs and erosion of “Danish values,” the Danish People’s Party celebrated victory with demands for a border crackdown. The Prime Minster conceded defeat and resigned.

Greece is inundated with thousands of Syrians and Iraqis fleeing Turkey, overwhelming authorities as the nation teeters on the brink of financial collapse. The Greek island of Lesbos with a native population of about 80,000 inhabitants is struggling to deal with 25,000 arrivals since the start of the year -— nearly half of the 55,000 who have reached Greece by sea from Turkey -— described as a “staggering 620 percent increase.”

Within the 28-member European Union, debate has grown over how to deal with the growing influx of Muslim “migrants” from the Middle East and Africa. Many countries have demanded that any acceptance system should be voluntary. France and other central European nations oppose imposition of quotas. Hungary has announced plans to build a 13-foot-high fence along its border with non-EU member Serbia, a move that triggered a rebuke from the United Nations Refugee Agency.

In Berlin, Muslim imams are conducting funerals for those who drowned in the Mediterranean, trying to get to Germany. More than 100,000 have arrived in Europe this year, 60,000 through Italy alone, according to the EU’s border agency Frontex —- which uses the descriptive term “irregular migration.”

In the Caribbean, hundreds of thousands of impoverished Haitians have invaded the neighboring Dominican Republic. Dominican officials have warned that people should start carrying documents to prove they are legal residents, to avoid deportation if they are stopped by authorities.

Here at home, despite astronomical rates of criminal activity by illegal aliens, the Obama administration provides tips on obtaining work permits to the invaders. Mark Krikorian has written a fact-filled report for National Review.

Townhall editor Katie Pavlich reports that Sarah Saldana, director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) acknowledged that no one was fired for releasing more than 65,000 criminal aliens onto American streets. They are protected from deportation and authorized to work in the U.S. by Barack Obama’s 2014 executive actions, which allowed illegal aliens to apply for deferred action status.

KTAR News reports that nearly 5,000 illegals —- repeat offenders with criminal records detained in Arizona —-  were released from custody, including 121 illegals now facing murder charges. They were previously released by federal officials from 2010 to 2014, despite Barack Obama’s assurances that his administration would deport violent criminals.

The criminal tentacles are far-reaching. In Wisconsin. Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Kansas and Missouri, 280 convicted criminal aliens from 22 countries have been arrested. Convictions include aggravated battery, armed robbery, drug possession, burglary, aggravated drunken driving, illegal possession of a weapon by a felon, battery, hit-and-run and drug trafficking. ICE officers arrested 34 men in Wisconsin during a month-long initiative, including 33 Mexican nationals and one Ecuadorian.


SCOTUS uses politically incorrect term “alien”

June 15, 2015

Bravo!

KERRY, SECRETARY OF STATE, ET AL. v. DIN

Argued February 23, 2015 — Decided June 15, 2015 — Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the opinion. Justices Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy concurred.  Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the dissent.

Fauzia Din petitioned to have her husband, Kanishka Be­rashk, a resident citizen of Afghanistan and former civil servant in the Taliban regime, classified as an “immediate relative” entitled to priority immigration status.

Din came to the U.S. as a refugee in 2000, and became a naturalized citizen in 2007. She filed a petition to have Kanishka Berashk, whom she married in 2006, classified as her immediate relative.

The court refers to the husband as an “unadmitted and nonresident alien,” with no right of entry into the United States, and no cause of action to press in furtherance of his claim for admission.

Seeing Red AZ covered the politically correct language usage handed down from on high at the Associated Press, by the Senior VP and Executive Editor on April 3, 2012. We compared the new Stylebook mandates to George Orwell’s Newspeak in the book “1984” in our post, “ Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press.”

It’s reassuring to know the U.S. Supreme Court still understands the meaning of words.


Flag Day: A fitting birthday for a proud American

June 14, 2015

Flag_Day

Happy birthday to both our flag and our sheriff

Today, Flag Day, is also the birthday of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. How fitting that this proud American, the son of Italian immigrants, celebrates his own special day with that honoring one of the enduring symbols of our liberty. As we fly our flags today, it’s worth reflecting on the many legal immigrants who came to this country through the front door, learned the language of our country, joyfully became citizens, and worked tirelessly to make lives as Americans in this great nation.

Sheriff Arpaio’s distinguished career in law enforcement, including worldwide assignments with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, are indicative of the national pride instilled in such grateful immigrant American families, appreciative of the opportunities afforded them. He concluded his remarkable federal career as head of the DEA for Arizona. Read his bio here.

Flag Day traditions are a meaningful part of our nation’s history. Facts regarding the background of this uniquely American holiday are provided by the National Flag Day Foundation. Take a few minutes and acquaint yourself with some of the fascinating information provided. Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States on June 14, 1777.

 I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

It’s only June but the Fourth of July is over

June 11, 2015

America’s Founders take back seat to Mohammad and climate change at U.S. Embassy

At the United States Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, the uniquely American Fourth of July holiday has already come and gone —- celebrated a month early on June 4. 

According to remarks given by U.S. Ambassador Robert Blake, the early celebration was out of respect for the holy month of Ramadan which runs from June 17 through July 17 in the mostly Muslim nation. The period is regarded as the holiest month of the year since Muslims believe the Quran was revealed to Mohammad during that time. The faithful fast from dawn to dusk throughout the holiday.

Political correctness ruled the day at the embassy, as a brass band played renditions of both the Star Spangled Banner and the Indonesian national anthem, Indonesia Raya. Climate change was also given a boost.

In his embarrassing speech, Ambassador Blake noted, “The theme of tonight’s celebration is ‘Go Green’ to highlight the importance of clean energy and sustainable development.  I encourage you to hop on the electric motorcycle, look at the model of the new green embassy we are building, and see the other displays of our green cooperation here, including biodegradable balloons and local, low-carbon, sustainable food.” 

Green is in.  Red, White and Blue are out.


Ann Coulter stands her ground against Jorge Ramos

May 30, 2015

“We have taken in one-quarter of the entire Mexican population,” Coulter emphasized to Fusion host Jorge Ramos. “At what point will we have taken in enough, in your view?”

Matthew Boyle writing for Breitbart covers the interaction. Read it and watch the video as Ann Coulter, author of ¡Adios America!, boldly counters Ramos’ underestimation of the numbers of his fellow countrymen who have illegally invaded the United States.

Father‘s Day is Sunday, June 21. ¡Adios America!: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole, is a book worthy of gifting. Dads have enough after shave, power tools and ties. Expand his mind.

The bold Coulter’s book is newly released. Yet there is far more to consider. In May 2011 we posted “Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns.” The first paragraph includes a link to this alarming ABC 10 News in San Diego report which details the fact the Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah, described by authorities as even more dangerous than Al-Qaida, has a long-established foothold in the city of Tijuana. The sole focus is radicalizing Mexican communities.

 As far back as October 2001, WND sounded the alarm in an article titled, “Arab terrorists crossing border,” noting a “tremendous increase in OTM’s (law enforcement’s term for ‘Other Than Mexicans’). Illegals from the former Soviet Union, Asia, and the Middle East are joining the flood of Mexicans, Central and South Americans — all slipping in through our incredibly accessible and porous South border. Apprehensions have also included illegals from the Sudan, Iraq, and even Iran.”

Yet in complete disregard of the seriousness associated with an unsecured border, accompanied by a rise of the global terrorist threat presented by ISIS —- which the clueless Barack Obama referred to as a Jay-Vee team as he claims the junk science of Climate Change is the most serious problem facing us —- we have three spineless Arizona Republican Congressmen write this nonsense as they double-talk the critical issue. The liberals at the Arizona Republic call it a “good thing.” Both  U.S. Sens. McCain and Flake are solidly onboard with the open border agenda.

 We can, and must,  do better.
