Why the disconnect in reporting Islamic terrorism?

July 23, 2016

Obama in a permanent dissociated state

Friday we watched in horror as news networks reported an assassin’s rampage through a shopping mall in Munich, Germany — slaughtering shoppers and specifically targeting teens at a McDonald‘s. At last report, 9 were dead and 27 wounded, some critically. He used an online ruse of free food to specifically lure the victims.

The same news sources were quick to point out — lacking any definitive evidence — that it was unlikely the cold-blooded murderer was an ISIS related terrorist. We were told “the motive remains unclear.”

Later the UK’s Daily Mail quoted witnesses as saying the gunman identified himself as German and screamed “Allahu Akbar” before the massacre — the two-word Allah praising calling card of the radical Muslim cowards who casually take the lives of innocent strangers with the intent of terrorizing Westerners. The 18-year-old assassin, who turned his weapon on himself,  held dual Iranian and German citizenship.

This is Barack Obama’s take (brief video) on the ISIS inspired violence that has invaded Western Europe and the United States at breakneck speed on a nearly daily basis.

In criminal cases defense attorneys representing those accused of heinous crimes have occasionally claimed the defendants were in a dissociated state when they committed their vicious acts. In a notorious trial in Phoenix predating O.J. Simpson’s, that defense was successfully used, when the murderer claimed to be sleepwalking as he repeatedly stabbed his wife to death.

Barack Obama’s disconnect when he says, “The world is less violent than it has ever been,” makes it clear he’s been sleepwalking through the past 8 years of his presidency, unable to utter the words “jihad” or “radical Muslim extremist,” in the face of ample evidence to the contrary.


McCain sabotaged by pal Lindsey Grahamnesty

July 7, 2016

Grahamnesy_revives_amnesty_Gangsters

As John McCain, at age 80, is gasping for political oxygen to sustain his final campaign for another 6-year term, his amnesty supporting fellow traveler Lindsey Graham is undermining McCain’s aspirations with a blatant pledge to revive the “Gang of 8” amnesty bill immediately after Election Day.  This means if McCain is reelected, he will once again be front and center on the irrational issue that rewards illegals with U.S. citizenship, which has been his focus since his 2005 collusion on amnesty with Ted Kennedy. It is also why he was censured by Arizona Republican elected officials in 2015.

Without a doubt, this is the last thing McCain wants dogging him as he fends off a no-nonsense conservative challenger, Dr. Kelli Ward, a family practice doctor, whose pledge to actually secure our border resonates with Arizonans, all too tired of the lies, insults and sarcasm.(watch this brief video to it’s conclusion.)

Graham’s statement is not an insignificant slip-up, but a full-scale blunder as it relates to McCain. Arizona senators have a history of perfecting their pre-election border two-step in order to skunk inattentive voters. Jon Kyl deceptively cast himself as a border hawk, as have John McCain and Jeff Flake in politically expedient reversals of their actual amnesty positions. It’s the political equivalent of a straying spouse pledging fidelity as the betrayal continues.

Although the Republicrat establishment and Democrat machinery is set to roll for another shot at amnesty in 2017 — which proponents cunningly call “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” though it has nothing to do with actual immigrants, who arrive legally. Not surprisingly, Politico reports McCain refused to discuss the possibility of another attempt to shove this costly and job killing abomination down our throats. This is Politico’s understatement: “The 2008 presidential nominee, who faces an unexpectedly tough reelection race this year, has long championed immigration reform, albeit with occasional lurches to the right.”

“All I focus on is my election. Then I set the agenda for the next year,” said McCain, the slippery former Gang of Eight architect. “I’m very superstitious about that.”

You can bet he’s working on that “agenda” right now, even as the accommodating and deceptively named Grassroots Arizona PAC funded by RINOs and out-of-state Obama donors distorts challenger Kelli Ward’s image and views.  Don’t give him a chance to implement that agenda. Cast your ballot for Dr. Kelli Ward.

SCOTUS blocks Obama’s amnesty proposals

June 24, 2016

In a split decision, the Supreme Court affirmed the ruling of United States. v. Texas, a challenge to Obama’s 2014 amnesty executive actions. The 4-4 decision sends the case back to Federal District Judge Andrew Hanen.. Meanwhile, DAPA and DACA, both Obama constructs, granting legal status to America’s illegal invaders, remain blocked

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott released this statement Thursday, following the Supreme Court’s equally divided decision affirming the 26-state* lawsuit against Barack Obama’s amnesty decrees:

“The action taken by the President was an unauthorized abuse of presidential power that trampled the Constitution, and the Supreme Court rightly denied the President the ability to grant amnesty contrary to immigration laws,” said Governor Abbott. “As the President himself said, he is not a king who can unilaterally change and write immigration laws. Today’s ruling is also a victory for all law-abiding Americans — including the millions of immigrants who came to America following the rule of law.”

Here’s Barack Obama repeatedly stating (video) that he was the President of the United States, not an emperor and was unable to bypass congress and unilaterally impose laws, specifically saying:

“Such an indiscriminate approach would be both unwise and unfair. It would suggest to those thinking about coming here illegally that there would be no repercussions for such a decision, and this could lead to a surge in more illegal immigration. It would also ignore the millions of people around the world who are waiting in line to come here legally. Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its borders and set laws for residency and citizenship.” 

That was prior to him doing exactly the opposite.

Mark Krikorian, Executive Director of Center for Immigration Studies, does a fine job of analyzing the action in his cogent commentary: “SCOTUS Doesn’t Abolish Separation of Powers – Yet.”

This 2016 Rasmussen Report survey shows over half of American voters believe providing a pathway to citizenship for those in this country illegally will just encourage more illegal immigration. Seventy percent of Republicans — and 51% of all voters — support GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall along the U.S./Mexican border to help stop illegal immigration. Gallup polling indicates nearly one-quarter of American Hispanics do not favor a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

* The 25 other states joining Texas in the lawsuit with Obama over his executive amnesty are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin.

 


The Vicious Snake: recited by Donald Trump

June 23, 2016

Food for thought

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump began reciting the lyrics to a song titled, “The Vicious Snake,” at his rallies several weeks ago.  Trump included this reading in his recent Phoenix appearance.


It’s not about guns, but senate missed the message

June 21, 2016

Begin by turning off spigot of unable-to-be-vetted “refugees” from terror sponsoring countries

Disarming Americans is tough work. The U.S. Senate spent Monday evening trying to enact controls on the Second Amendment rights of American citizens in response to the most recent ISIS inspired massacre in Orlando.

Political shenanigans were the order of the day in an effort to constrain law-abiding citizens as those elected to represent us pursue their bizarre scheme ostensibly to “prevent further mass shootings.” Heritage Foundation offers a far superior plan on how to prevent another domestic terror attack: “Implement counter terrorism policies.”

The executive director of the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA), Chris W. Cox, summed up the farcical maneuvering with these words:

“Today, the American people witnessed an embarrassing display in the United States Senate. President Obama and his allies proved they are more interested in playing politics than addressing their failure to keep Americans safe from the threat of radical Islamic terrorism.

We all agree that terrorists should not be allowed to purchase or possess firearms. We should all agree that law-abiding Americans who are wrongly put on a secret government list should not be denied their constitutional right to due process. These are not mutually exclusive ideas.  It is shocking that the safety of the American people is taking a backseat to political theatre.”

Cox’ full statement can be read here.

Erich Pratt. Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, sent this letter to Senators, which included a survey of over 15,000 law-enforcement personnel illustrating that our first responders believe that armed civilians, not gun control, will make Americans safer. 


Countering “violent extremism” bill scrubs Islamic component

June 18, 2016

Intentional omissions of words that matter leave us all more vulnerable

As ISIS operatives are acknowledged to be exploring new ways of expanding terrorist attacks in the U.S. and internationally, a toothless bill that has had three previous incarnations has reared its head again, just in time to coincide with election season and provide talking points to the homies.

Given the calculated-to-appeal title of “Countering Terrorist Radicalization Act,”  H.R. 5471  authorizes the formation of a Counterterrorism Advisory Board tasked with issuing terrorism alerts.

Admit it. Don’t you feel safer already?

This posturing is in response to the Orlando terrorist attack that left dozens dead and wounded. Unfortunately, the bill, which passed the House on Thursday, is neither a serious response nor will it help make our country safer. Yet it is now headed to the Senate. The “violent extremists” are never identified. Not a word relates to curbing the continued flow of unable to be vetted “refugees” from terror sponsoring nations.

Daniel Horowitz writing for Conservative Review explains the contorted language Republicans use in  refusing to acknowledge the fundamental component of Islamic terror. Be sure to check out the chart titled, “Disappearing Language of Terror.”

Robin Simcox’ excellent commentary for the Heritage Foundation is titled, “The Unmentionable Origins of Terrorism.” 

Rest assured the bogus HR 5471 allows for “no additional funds” to be authorized to carry out this Act or the amendments made by this Act.” Why would it need funding? It does nothing and says less.


John McCain “directly responsible” for rise of ISIS

June 17, 2016

Not a “maverick” riding the “fork-tongued express,” Dr. Kelli Ward refreshingly speaks the truth

Former Arizona State Senator Dr. Kelli Ward released this statement regarding John McCain’s assertion that the president was “directly responsible” for the mass shooting at an Orlando LGBT nightclub, which he immediately backtracked with a statement that he misspoke,” saying that he “did not mean to imply that Barack Obama was personally responsible.

This is Dr. Kelli Ward’s response:

As we got used to during his 2008 presidential campaign, John McCain has once again thrown a punch at Barack Obama and immediately apologized for it, bowing to lick the boots of the political correctness police — not surprising for the ultimate establishment insider.

I, however, am not afraid to place the blame right where it belongs: John McCain is “directly responsible” for the rise of ISIS. Without his dangerously distracted foreign policy, we would not have this ruthless Islamic extremist organization that crucifies children, systematically rapes women, oppresses Christians, and throws homosexuals off rooftops.

Libya and Iraq would not be the “Harvard of terrorism” they are now if it were not for his knee-jerk, trigger-happy foreign policy of promiscuously arming the supposedly moderate militants he says he is “intimate with” and overthrowing stable, albeit unsavory regimes. He even wants to stay in Iraq for 100 years and joked about risking military lives to “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.” Even George W. Bush and Tony Blair have admitted that the 2003 invasion of Iraq created a vacuum which allowed jihadist ideologies to flourish. Our open border has given those emboldened elements access to our country and our citizens. McCain has been complicit in all of it.

The reason John is currently losing a reliably red state to a rubber stamp Obama Democrat is because he is dangerously distracted with his “Invade the World, Invite the World” agenda. John has proposed bombing, invading, or attacking at least thirteen countries in recent years, and in addition to his support for open borders and amnesty, he also wants to dump thousands of unvetted refugees into our streets and give them welfare to boot.

John McCain claims that I voted against funding the troops and that I have a weak record on national security. Any 5th grader understands that state legislators don’t vote on national security legislation.

As a military wife of a husband who has been deployed overseas, I will support military engagement only as a last resort, only when Constitutionally approved by Congress, and only when there is a clear strategy for victory, not endless occupations and expensive nation-building. Yes, John McCain is “directly responsible” for the rise of ISIS.

U.S. Senate terms are six years long. At 80, John McCain, who rates an “F” score from Conservative Review for his decades long collusion with the most liberal of Democrats, is running for yet another term, arrogantly declaring he has more work to do. It’s time for a change. The Senate Conservatives Fund has devoted a web page to “Retire John McCain,” declaring “Thirty years in the U.S. Senate is enough. It’s time to elect a true conservative in Arizona who will support and defend the Constitution.”

The group adds, “There are few Republicans who have betrayed our conservative principles more than John McCain. He wrote the McCain-Kennedy and “Gang of Eight” immigration bills that offered amnesty to millions of illegal aliens! He voted for the Wall Street bailout, to fund the implementation of Obamacare, for the $600 billion “fiscal cliff” tax hike, and to raise the debt limit 14 different times! John McCain lost his way a long time ago and it’s time to replace him with a strong conservative leader who will support and defend the Constitution.”

Seeing Red AZ supports Dr. Kelli Ward, a conservative two-term state senator and physician.  John McCain is well-funded by inside-the-beltway, D.C. lobbyists and deceptive PACs. Kelli Ward needs our help to remain competitive as she is assaulted by vicious televised ads and mailers paid for by McCain’s predominantly out-of-state surrogates. Give what you can. This senate primary election is the most important 2016 race in the state.
