Ex-Gov. Napolitano: The despotic creature that never went away

December 3, 2016

The nightmare continues

Some childhood stories are so ghastly, looking back we wonder how we survived them. As an example, Hansel and Gretel were led deep into the forest with only a loaf of bread by their widowed father and his new wife, who didn’t take too kindly to children. Hungry, frightened and tired, the brother and sister came to a house made of gingerbread and they began to feast. The old witch who resided within used the house as a lure for satisfying her appetite for tasty kids. As she was about to toss them into her oven, they turned the tables on her, and left her to roast as they followed the breadcrumbs they had purposely dropped and made their way home to their newly single father.  Gruesome? Indeed. The Brothers Grimm were masters of such fables.

This tale of horror is offered for a reason. There is no wicked stepmother in the following story — rather a fanatical and unwilling to enforce the law ogre in ongoing authoritative positions who anoints illegals as having greater needs than our own citizens.

The state of Arizona was once ruled by a rough voiced tyrant named Napolitano who refused to protect the people from hordes of illegal invaders flooding into the state from an impoverished and crime- ridden foreign country directly to the south. When the citizens of Arizona pleaded with the Napolitano to protect them from the influx of crime and violent drug cartels, along with the astronomical costs of the limitless benefits they had to provide the invaders, the Napolitano roared, “Show me a 50-foot fence, and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder,” all too clearly illustrating her lack of commitment to constructing a security wall along the southern border to stem the spiraling criminality.

The Napolitano, a coarse and boorish species known as Democratia Erectus, caught the eye of an even greater power known as the Obama. He whisked the Napolitano out of Arizona and spirited it away to Washington D.C. where he put the Napolitano in charge of doing the same nothingness, only on a grander scale as Secretary of Homeland Security, though not following the plans of her predecessor former judge Michael Chertoff, who eventually concluded militarizing the border was a viable option.

Finally in Sept. 2013 the Napolitano heard the enticing call of Academia far across the great land. The Napolitano’s latest gig is University of California President, which paid a base salary of $570,000, and covered a monthly $10,000 lease of a mansion, and $9,000 yearly for car expense.  And the latest edict?

“Campus police officers will not contact, detain, question or arrest any individual solely on the basis of immigration status.” The Napolitano has announced that system leaders will protect and defend the estimated 2,500 illegal students enrolled across the 10-campus UC system. in the country illegally — and will instruct campus police to do the same —- in effect creating sanctuary campuses. This action is in response to the election of Donald Trump, who has vowed a meaningful response to the hordes breaching our porous border. The UC press release  can be read here.

We are supposed to be concerned that they face legal and financial obstacles to completing their education as our American citizen children are now forced to compete for college placement and later, jobs, taken by those who do not belong here. Yet within the first month  of taking office, Napolitano formed a student advisory council on aiding illegals and committed $5 million to assist UC campuses provide them targeted financial aid and services.

This outrageous action come directly from the same Napolitano previously charged with protecting the nation’s borders.

We knew the Napolitano was a cataclysm when it roamed Arizona. In the intervening years, nothing has changed but its increasingly brassy disregard for Americans.


Sheriff David Clarke perfectly describes Obama’s actions

Obama opens prison doors, allows more refugees, considers additional amnesty for illegals

Barack Obama has been on a clemency roll as he heads out the door. On Tuesday he commuted the sentences of 79 drug offenders bringing the total number of federal inmates who’ve had their sentences reduced by the soon to be exiting president to 1,023. He has now granted clemency to more inmates than the past 11 presidents combined

Feeling emboldened, Democrat U.S. Reps. Zoe Lofgren, Lucille Roybal-Allard and Jeff Flake’s radical left-wing amnesty buddy, Luis Gutierrez, who has longstanding ties to the American Communist and Socialist parties —  recently sent this letter to Barack Obama imploring him to use his pardon authority to forgive the past and future civil immigration offenses of the estimated 750,000 impossible to verify so-called “DREAMers.” These foreign nationals, many now adults with families of their own, all claim they were brought here as young children in violation of the law by their illegal parents. Obama granted them deportation deferrals under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. They are still illegally in the United States, taking university placements and jobs from American citizens. Rather than being a DREAM, this constitutes a nightmare, as conservative Human Events reveals.

Obama also plans on upping the ante on unable-to-be-vetted Syrian “refugees,” increasing their numbers in the United States by another 10,000.  

Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke gets it.  He says Obama is “like a tenant who has been evicted and will trash the place on his way out.”


Trump should appoint Kris Kobach as Secretary of Homeland Security

November 22, 2016

If, like many political observers these days you find yourself on information overload, you might wonder why a report in The Topeka Capital-Journal has any relevancy or readers of Seeing Red AZ.

Let us remind you.

Remember Arizona’s much heralded law known simply as SB 1070? Although the far-left Arizona Republic was/is unable to write about it without the accompanying descriptive “controversial” label.

Liberal federal courts gutted parts of the law which ultimately made its way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The fallout has been ongoing as we noted just days ago reporting on a lawsuit against AZ AG Mark Brnovich launched by Judicial Watch and former state Senate President Russell Pearce.

Copied in numerous states the language of the Arizona bill was refreshing, using the term “Illegal aliens” and not confusing the meanings of immigrant, migrant and undocumented. Immigrants are here legally.  They have not slithered into the United States using trickery and deceit. They want to become English-speaking Americans taking on our values and history as their own, not recreating the barrios they left behind or bypassing our legal system to impose Sharia law in their communities.

Reports on the weekend meeting between President-elect Donald Trump and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach are heartening to border state Arizonans, who live with the results of non-enforcement of our insecure border imposed by Barack Obama. Taxpayers fund the costly benefits and social services, including providing education, medical care and shouldering the burgeoning impact on our criminal justice system.

It was Kobach, an early supporter and adviser who counseled Trump on implementing “extreme vetting” of those seeking refugee status. He advised candidate Mitt Romney on “self deportation.“

Then Senate President Russell Pearce did a masterful job of shepherding SB 1070 through the Arizona legislature. Constitutional lawyer Kris Kobach, was the architect.

 Kobach built a national reputation for advocacy of state voter identification and registration laws intended to thwart illegal voting.  In 1995, he received his Juries Doctorate from Yale Law School and his doctorate in Political Science from Oxford University. Early in his career he worked for the U.S. Department of Justice under Attorney General John Ashcroft serving as the chief adviser on immigration law and border security. After his fellowship year ended, the Attorney General appointed Kobach as his Counsel. Kobach was a constitutional law professor at the University of Missouri before winning election to secretary of state in Kansas in 2010. These are but highlights, His remarkable bio can be read here.

Kris Kobach will serve America well. Donald Trump can make no more qualified appointment to head the Department of Homeland Security.


Chaos in Chicago as O’Hare strike disrupts holiday travel

November 18, 2016

Remembering Ronald Reagan

On Wednesday we posted about defiant liberal mayors challenging President-elect Donald Trump on the issue of sanctuary cities, which provide safe havens for illegal foreign nationals. Our first example was Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel —- former chief-of-staff to Barack Obama —- boasting of his unwavering support (video) for illegals. Emanuel, who presides over a city with an astronomical homicide rate declares, “ Let’s be clear about what Chicago is. It always will be a sanctuary city. You are safe in Chicago. You are secure in Chicago. You are supported in Chicago.”

Now his “safe and secure city” which employs many undereducated, low-wage workers, will ensure chaos meets Thanksgiving travelers. Hundreds of O’Hare International Airport workers have voted to go on strike coinciding with the nation’s most traveled holiday. O’Hare is one of the nation’s busiest airports.

Although the circumstances are different, this incident brings to mind how President Ronald Reagan handled the serious situation that existed in 1981 when the nation’s air traffic controllers went on strike. He fired over 11,000 strikers who ignored his order to return to work within the 48-hour deadline he set for compliance with his order.


Trump’s vow to enforce border security propelled him forward

November 10, 2016

Americans desire national security, respect for our sovereignty

Think back to when a more bombastic Donald Trump stood on the stage with 16 other Republican candidates and seemed the most unlikely of them all to be the last one standing. But his message that has resonated throughout his campaign remains a powerful yet easily understood one. No amnesty for illegals and build a wall

With that strategy, he was bucking the establishment honchos comprising the Republican National Committee that commissioned this self-analysis after the dismal  2012 elections

Their conclusion was  the party “must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform.” Americans know it more honestly as “amnesty”—- a magnanimous gift for the hordes of illegal invaders. Arizona abuts the porous border and we have been force-fed the “comprehensive” baloney from Jon Kyl, John McCain and Jeff Flake for years.

The RNC’s big tent concept was massaged to remessage the Republican brand to those who think we “don’t care about them.” Whether that is the task before a political party is up for debate. Especially so when they have blatantly disregarded our law to enter the U.S.

In 1992, Bill Clinton’s strategist James Carville coined the phrase “it’s the economy stupid,” as a keep-your-eye on-the-prize objective. Today it’s amnesty for illegals from Mexico, South and Central America as well as Russia, China and Middle Eastern countries that are state sponsors of terrorism. The main job of government is to provide safety to its citizens.

Barack Obama opened the floodgates to all comers looking to increase the Democrat voter base.  Hillary Clinton vowed to go even further. For years we’ve been given a static number of 10 -11 million illegals who are already here. As they continue to flood into the U.S. and have families once they arrive the number is actually closer to 30 million.

Donald Trump understands the significance of the amnesty message, and made securing our border a cornerstone of his campaign .No country exists without enforceable borders. Legal immigration, including assimilation to our language, values and customs, once known as Americanization, is welcomed. Being invaded by lawbreakers is not.

An excellent assessment of Donald  Trump’s ascension to the presidency of the United States, is written by Breitbart’s senior editor-at-large Joel B. Pollak. This excerpt states his case perfectly, illuminating why Trump was elected:

What the Republican establishment underestimated was how deeply Americans — including key Democratic constituencies, and even legal immigrants — resented amnesty. For some, it was a matter of economic competition. For others, it was a matter of the rule of law. And for others, it was a matter of cultural coherence.

Regardless, Donald Trump reached voters that the GOP had long forgotten by promising to “build a wall” with a “big, beautiful door.”

It was not a call to xenophobia. It was a claim that the diversity that Americans have always cherished — e pluribus unum — rested on the foundations of secure borders, and law enforcement, and fairness. If we don’t have a border, Trump argued, we don’t have a country.

 


A frank discussion with Donald Trump

October 8, 2016

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has reportedly cancelled nearly $1.7 million in televised ads scheduled for the key states of Florida, North Carolina, and Ohio — as well as other buys in Colorado, Iowa, New England and Pennsylvania markets.

This decision coincides with the release of a decade old, open mic spew of vulgarities, for which Trump apologized Friday (video). Still, he was unable to resist impetuously leaving the door open to discuss Bill Clinton’s extramarital escapades.

Too easily distracted, Trump must focus on the needs of our nation.

This tit-for-tat strategy is pure folly. Bill Clinton is not running in this upcoming election. The issues are the enormous debt incurred by Barack Obama, which Hillary Clinton would expand upon as she promises free college tuition and increased benefits. Joblessness is on the rise. Social Security and government-funded health care are unsustainable and must be retooled. The flood of unable to be vetted “refugees” from terror sponsoring nations must come to an abrupt end.  Our border must be secured. In these uncertain times, it’s imperative we invest more in defense and rebuilding our military, long neglected by Obama — who prefers bowing to despots, heads of corrupt regimes and Muslim royalty on his global apology tour — to safeguarding American citizens. There is no question beefing up the nation’s deteriorating infrastructure is an issue of foremost importance. We are vulnerable on far too many fronts.

Republicans need to win this election, Mr. Trump. Redefine the perpetual pout and limit the adjectives. We heard you the first time. No need to repeat everything three times.

This isn’t rocket science. Alicia Machado was not the bait you should have taken in the first debate. Neither is attempting to cover your own crude statements by trying to make Bill Clinton’s conduct worse.  This is not a vulgarity contest.

Donald Trump needs to move past these distractions and discuss his vision for America. That’s the only message.

After eight years of the outrageous excesses of Barack Obama, this presidential election should have been a cake walk for Republicans. Instead key endorsers are peeling away and the campaign is on life support. It can be resurrected, but the clock is ticking. Stay on message, Mr. Trump.

We need you.


Who’s working in America? Shocking facts re: labor force

October 2, 2016

Jason Richwine, writing for Center for Immigration Studies reports, “It is well known that lower-skilled men in their prime working years — ages 25 to 54 — have left the labor force in increasing numbers over the past several decades. Experts have been reluctant to acknowledge, however, that the work problem has afflicted native-born men almost exclusively.”

Read more of this well documented and researched report here.

The impact escalates dramatically as WND’s Leo Hohmann reported in his 2015 article, ‘Staggering’: 680,000 Muslims to U.S. under Obama. If elected, Hillary Clinton has vowed to significant;y increase those “refugee” numbers. These figures do not reflect the influx of Mexican, Central and South Americans who gain access to the U.S. through our incredibly porous border. Also among those are illegals from Albania, China, Pakistan, Egypt, Somalia, and more than 75 other countries — many state sponsors of terrorism, according to a leaked intelligence analysis from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP), as revealed in this two-year-old Breitbart report.  It’s a certainty the numbers have increased since Brandon Darby wrote,Leaked CBP Report Shows Entire World Exploiting Open US Border.

It is possible to put a foot down and say we’ve had enough. Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is doing just that by withdrawing Texas from the refugee resettlement programIn his Sept. 21, 2016 statement, Abbot said:

“Texas has repeatedly requested that the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the director of national intelligence provide assurances that refugees resettled in Texas will not pose a security threat, and that the number of refugees resettled in Texas would not exceed the state’s original allocation in fiscal year 2016 – both of which have been denied by the federal government.”

Gov. Abbott is right. America needs to focus on national security, strengthening our military and infrastructure, being energy independent and ensuring our own citizens have employment opportunities. Working Americans provide for their families and, in turn, strengthen our country.
