September 11, 2001: Have we already forgotten?

Shameful actions of NFL players need to be dealt with — by vanishing fans

 Each year we commemorate the unspeakable horrors that shook America to her core on the clear autumn morning fifteen years ago today. Nearly 3,000 people were murdered by 19 Islamic terrorists in the U.S. on expired visas who commandeered two commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City. A third flew into the Pentagon. The death toll included 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 massacred in the attacks.

We also remember the orchestrated attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 — resulting in the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Ty Woods, Sean Smith and Glen Doherty, which then-Secretary of State attempted to blame on a “spontaneous event” following a fabricated video defaming Muhammad.

In 2009, Army Major and Fort Hood psychiatrist, Dr. Nidal Hasan, who refers to himself as a “soldier of Allah” opened gunfire on the base killing 14 (including an unborn baby) and wounding more than 30 others. Though Hasan called out “Allahu Akbar!“ (Allah is greater) the Obama administration refused to acknowledge the terrorist aspect, foolishly referring to the murders as “workplace violence.”

The 2013 Boston Marathon bombings that maimed and killed innocents on a spring morning were perpetrated by Chechen immigrant brothers motivated by extremist Islamic beliefs.

In 2014 depraved decapitations of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff shook our sensibilities —- as was the intent via the grotesque videos posted by the jihadist executioners. These victims followed Daniel Pearl, a Wall Street Journal reporter savagely executed in the same manner in 2002. In the intervening years, other Americans have met that grisly fate. 

During 2015 the civilized world  witnessed mass beheadings and the burning alive of a caged Jordanian pilot. Some of the beheadings were carried out by children under the guidance of their own fathers, indoctrinating depravity in the name of Allah.

The perpetrators of these unspeakably evil acts are fanatical and murderous international thugs who literally follow the Quran’s 47:4 directive to “strike the necks” of unbelievers. Obviously, ISIS represents the worst of Islam, but few American Muslims raise their voices against either the butchery or the threats of devastation to our homeland and inflicting havoc on American cities.

Yet Americans have witnessed the Obama administration’s capitulation to the terror sponsoring regime of Iran by accelerating their nuclear capabilities. At the same time we are fed distorted intelligence reports giving a glossier version of U.S. progress against al Qaeda and the Islamic State — foolishly referred to as a “JV team” by Obama —  than is reflected by reality. Fortunately our Constitution ensures presidential term limits.

What there are no term limits on is ignorance. As Americans commemorate the victims of the September 11, 2001 depravity, overpaid NFL football players, with no real concept of how fortunate they are to be Americans or what the day represents, are using the somber occasion to stage protests by refusing to stand for our national anthem in a show of solidarity with the BLM movement that was founded in the lie of “Hands up, don’t shoot!”  The fallacious charge of racial inequality is also exemplified by the preponderance of black players with $ multimillion contacts, though there are no protests from the white minority players.

If the planned protests go foreword, patriotic Americans should stage their own demonstrations and boycott the teams. The old line money talks and BS walks applies in this instance. Constitutional lawyer, author and talk show host Mark Levin makes the case — covered by CNS News — that this is not a freedom of speech issue.


AZ Republic endorsements: deliberate deception

August 7, 2016

August in Arizona takes its toll with no relief from triple digit, scorching temperatures and the realization that they‘ll be no reprieve for weeks to come. Residents used to joke they could fry an egg on the sidewalk. Now that stale humor is put aside for real entertainment. It is the political season, after all.

Case in point is the leftist Arizona Republic’s endorsements in the upcoming Primary Election. Over the last week, the predictably skewed endorsements provided a bit of levity, starkly evidenced by the newspaper’s pick in the First Congressional District. Highlighted are two Dems, both former Republicrats — exactly the type of apostates that would get the nod from the conservative-despising boors at the newspaper. They credit their favored of the two, while a state legislator,  as having been a facilitator for liberal Gov. Janet Napolitano’s “many budget (and) policy wins during her tenure….” 

Day after day, the preposterous endorsements are head shakers for those who actually follow politics. The McCain endorsement was an exercise in foolishness, sloppiness, and willfully dangerous, since coffee drinkers across the state choked on their first morning sips. According to the newspaper, the marginal McCain is “a global figure and one of the most influential people in the world.”  Omitted is the fact that McCain has been censured by elected statewide Republican party officials, has been a regular White House visitor advising Obama on myriad issues and has been funded since 2001 by freedom-hating Socialist, multi-billionaire George Soros.

The error filled editorial refers to his opponent Dr. Kelli Ward as having served “two years in the Arizona Senate.”  It was actually two terms, two years each, which equals 4 years. You can guess that  facts are irrelevant and playing fast and loose is the newspaper’s stock in trade.

Another challenger, who has since pulled out of the race was deceptively referred to as a “GOP party activist,” although he was previously registered as  a PND —- Party Not Designated.

The brain-dead McCain sought to arm Libyan dictator Muammar Qadhafi, posed with ISIS terrorists —- and promised the “revolutionaries” weapons, training, and funding.  He referred to them as “freedom fighters.”

Here is the “influential global leader” in a 2008 CBS News clip haughtily speaking with reporters in Jordan and exhibiting abysmal ignorance of who the extremists and terrorists actually are. He was immediately corrected by far more knowledgeable then-Sen. Joe Lieberman while an obviously embarrassed Lindsey Graham hung his head.

If reelected, McCain and his Democrat allies are prepared to roll for another shot at amnesty in 2017 — which its proponents prefer to call “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” though it has nothing to do with actual immigrants, who arrive legally. Former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, a Kelli Ward supporter, writes,”If you were asked this question — which Republican politicians have lied to voters while supporting illegal immigration and opposing border security, what name is at the top of your list? It’s that same 2008 Republican presidential candidate, US Senator John McCain.”

Politico has written, “McCain has long championed immigration reform, albeit with occasional lurches to the right.”

Know this.  McCain lurches to the right about as often as Seeing Red AZ lurches to the left. His “lurches” are always pre-election and he reverts as soon as the ballots are counted. Sending the 80-year-old McCain back to DC for another six-year term is delusional and dangerous.  We deserve better. Vote for Dr. Kelli Ward

 


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.
