Border Patrol defies Presidential order banning non-essential travel into U.S.

March 22, 2020

As the rebellious U. S. Border Patrol puts Americans at risk, the question to ask is, “Why?”

While the world is dealing with the highly contagious, deadly viral plague known as the Coronavirus pandemic, hundreds of carloads filled with Mexican nationals are being permitted to enter the U.S. at the Arizona border.

The Washington Examiner reports that hundreds of vehicles that should have been blocked are being allowed to cross the border into the United States on the flimsiest of claims and in violation of President Trump’s orders.

“We’re letting them through. And that’s pretty much the gist of it,” one Border Patrol official said. “Nobody’s enforcing it. It was put up — the president put it out. The chief patrol put it out. And we’re just not doing it.”

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) website lists its oddly ambiguous mission, which includes keeping terrorists and their weapons out of the U.S. while facilitating lawful international travel and trade.

American citizens have been under the mistaken impression that the law enforcement organization existed to protect our border, as its name clearly defines. The website absurdly includes a “vision statement,” detailing, “What the Agency aspires to become,” which states:

“To serve as the premier law enforcement agency enhancing the Nation’s safety, security, and prosperity through collaboration, innovation, and integration.”

We are living in unprecedented times with a pandemic that is altering daily routines in countless ways. Businesses are closing, healthcare resources are stretched to their limits, Americans are self-quarantining and many are worrying how they will pay their bills since their jobs are gone. The Border Patrol is a law enforcement agency not an innovative social services department. Allowing hundreds of cars filled with Mexican nationals access across our border is not only reprehensible, it further imperils the health and safety of our own citizens.

Whatever else you do today, read The Washington Examiner report, exposing the dangerous laxity on our border.


AZ Republic’s odd placement choices, concealed info

February 1, 2020

Let’s see…which story should be given Page One prominence?

Bold Headline, above-the-fold accompanying a three-quarter page report —  including an oversize photo of an ASU student wearing a mouth and nose mask for protection against the coronavirus emanating from China: “It’s hard to prepare for an unknown, but the flu season has already provided helpful practice, state health officials say.” The article continues to an inside half page and a photo of another masked ASU student, riding a bicycle.

Bottom of the same front page: small font type: “27 accused of sex crimes.” It’s accompanied by a single sentence and a directive to page ‘3A’ (short-shrifted rest of the story). “More than two dozen people were arrested by Valley police in Operation Silent Predator, a crackdown on trafficking and sex crimes involving children.”

The arrested suspects, who were arranging sex acts with children, are described as between the ages of 21 and 69.  The child victims were 14-years-old and younger and were stalked online.

Of particular interest is the fact that twenty-seven Valley perverts were charged as sexual predators perpetrating crimes against children and the newspaper did not mention a single name. Could it be because Homeland Security was one of the investigating agencies, partnering with Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe, and the Chandler Police Departments along with the Arizona Attorney General’s Office? Seeing Red AZ easily located the names of the suspects:

They have been identified as Samuel Puma, 69; Patrick Mai, 65; Walter Lundy, 59; Franklin Omori, 57; Roy Vasquez, 55; Daryl McCraw, 53; Hector Pano, 48; Juan Flores, 40; Andrew Kasmar, 37; Richard Gonzalez, 37; Colten Jourdain, 35; Edward Mendoza, 33; Agustin Ibanez, 32; Kristopher Broom, 31; Ezra Reynolds, 31; Fabian Hernandez, 30; Jose Sandoval, 30; Bryan Carr, 30; Lawrence Ruiz, 29; Tommy Diaz, 28; Kevin Evangelista, 26; Dovonta Owens, 25; Nicholas Benhart, 23; Jesus Mendoza, 23; Terrick Ebron, 22; and Isaac Arce, 21.

Their photos can be found on various local television outlets, though not in the seriously failing no-news newspaper.

Count on this: If any of these arrested child predators are here illegally, the Arizona Republic will never report it.


Mexico: A terrorist nation run by violent drug cartels

November 11, 2019

The United States military is unparalleled. On Veterans Day, we pause to acknowledge the security our troops provide, not only to America, but with peacekeeping missions worldwide in regions where security is threatened or violence is commonplace.

Our troops are deployed in more than 150 countries around the world, with over 170,000 active-duty personnel serving outside the United States and its territories. The numbers, according to Wikipedia, are based on the most recent United States Department of Defense statistics as of June 30, 2019.

In view of the inconceivable carnage Mexican drug cartels inflicted upon three American citizen mothers and their six children — caravanning in three separate vehicles — grotesquely ambushed, brutally slaughtered and burned, leaving other children seriously injured, it’s time to stop our farcical dealings with Mexico. We have no choice other than to acknowledge the country is run by terrorists and to deploy troops on our own border.

Mexico is a dangerous country as evident by these U.S. Department of State advisories, which are not new. Americans are urged to reconsider travel or bluntly advised not to travel, as violent crime, such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery, are widespread. Giving them nearly $300 million a year of American taxpayer dollars has done nothing to alleviate the pervasive crime in the resource-rich country.

There has been a despicable effort to blame the victims and lessen the culpability of the murderers, with Associated Press zoning in on the group’s polygamous past or claiming the slayings were due to “mistaken identities,” the brutal killers thinking they were part of a rival gang, blaming water conflicts within the farming communities where the victims lived and even deriding the dead mothers as part of a “sex cult.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) recently stated, “Mexico is leaning dangerously toward becoming a failed state. We have not seen enough action toward addressing the threat that it presents, not only to the Mexican people but to the American people. When the drug cartels become as big, as powerful, as bold and as callous toward human life as these have become — I think this is a time for us to take this very seriously and to figure out the best steps forward.”

Mexican law enforcement and military are no match to the crime-related violence. In 2018, the number of drug-related homicides in Mexico rose to 33,341, a 15 percent increase from the previous year—and a record high. Mexican drug cartels have killed at least145 candidates and politicians and party workers in the lead-up to Mexico’s 2018 presidential elections.

Global Conflict Tracker lists Mexico in the same category as Syria, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Lebanon and Turkey. 

We need a wall, a vigorous military presence and a fervent commitment to securing our border — Democrat opposition be damned.


Tucson: People’s Republic of Pima to vote on sanctuary city status

October 21, 2019

It’s no secret Tucson, Arizona, located in Pima County, is a leftist bastion. The city, a stone’s throw from crime infested Mexico (read State Dept. warning under link), will be voting Nov. 5, on Proposition 205, that, if passed, will codify it as a sanctuary city. Such an act will be an anomaly in the state that is overwhelmed with illegal aliens and their negative impact on schools, medical facilities, the court system, countless social services, and citizen employment. No other Arizona city has made the claim that supporting such a preposterous policy would be beneficial to its citizens. The ballot measure, organized by extremists aligned with The People’s Defense Initiative, is officially titled, “Tucson Families Free and Together.”

The adage we heard from our parents, “You’re known by the company you keep,” bears out here.

Among the supporters of this extremist measure are:*

Pima County Democrat Party

Arizona Democrat Party Progressive Caucus

Green Party of Pima County

Progressive Democrats of America

Progressive Democrats of Southern Arizona

ACLU of Arizona

American Friends Service Committee

Democratic Socialists of America, Tucson

Jobs with Justice

National Lawyers Guild

No More Deaths

Planned Parenthood

Standing Up for Racial Justice

Pima Area Labor Federation, AFL-CIO

An interesting political mix stand in opposition:

Gov. Doug Ducey (R)

U.S. Sen. Martha McSally (R)

Mark Kelly (D), 2020 candidate for U.S. Senate

Mayor Jonathan Rothschild (D), Tucson

Councilmember Regina Romero (D), 2019 candidate for mayor

Councilmember Steve Kozachik (D), Tucson

Councilmember Richard Fimbres (D), Tucson

Councilmember Paul Durham (D), Tucson

Ed Ackerley (I), candidate for mayor in 2019

Chris Magnus, police chief of Tucson

Former Gov. Jan Brewer (R)

Former State Sen. Steve Farley (D-LD9)

The spineless Arizona Daily Star fails miserably at tightrope walking as it waffles between placating its left-leaning readers or endorsing dysfunction, while piling on the Tucson Police Department, states:

The Arizona Daily Star Editorial Board supports the goal and mission of Prop. 205, but we cannot support this specific initiative. There is another way, albeit an imperfect way, to accomplish many of the Tucson Families Free and Together goals: Work with the Tucson Police Department, the various TPD advisory boards, community groups and the Tucson City Council to revise the TPD general orders that govern how the force operates.”

Several years ago the Huffington Post headlined its report: “Liberals in Southern Arizona Seek to Form New State.” The reporters got some key items very wrong, such as the description of John McCain and Barry Goldwater as “conservative giants.”  But the failed novelty of Tucson severing itself into a 51st state is all the more disappointing in light of the city’s promotion of Prop. 205.

Heroin poppy purge provides sob story for illegals

September 29, 2019

Misplaced sympathy: Actual victims are Americans not Guatemalans

If you thought the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic was loathsome in its previous incarnation, its recent acquisition by GateHouse puts an even more outrageous spin on the news. 

A front page report headed THE MIGRANTS, sits atop the emboldened headline, “Poppies cultivated for heroin fuel crisis.” Below that is the tearjerker line: “Guatemalan farmers fled to U.S. after crops were razed.” This twist puts to rest the illegal invaders claims of seeking fear-based asylum. What they want is economic security in the country they were more than willing to flood with heroin.

Readers are then introduced to Carlos. He previously farmed potatoes, oats and corn, before finding a much more lucrative and prettier crop of bright red poppies he and others like him were happy to cultivate for their milky fluid used to make heroin. Carlos says he and his friends were persuaded to replace their vegetable crops with what he was told would produce medicine.

Sure thing, Carlos.

If you thought the bad guys are the willing farmers, often engaging in violent battles to ensure enough water for their deadly but highly profitable crops — via their complicity in flooding American cities with heroin — you‘d be dead wrong. The ogre in the tale of woe is none other than the United States. Our government has “pressured” Guatemala to eradicate the profitable poppy fields, throwing Carlos and his complicit compatriots back into growing vegetables.

Carlos admits the loss of revenue from growing poppies was the main reason he decided to leave and join the massive influx of Guatemalans invading the U.S.  “They took away the poppy. These potatoes are hardly worth anything.”

He says he heard that as long as parents showed up for their court hearings, they could stay in the U.S. and work while their kids went to public school free. Guatemala, which only requires a sixth grade education, imposes fees for any schooling past that grade level.

These staggering numbers are directly from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. They include 72,873 unaccompanied minors who were apprehended by Border Patrol through August.

During the same time period, Border Patrol apprehended 457,871 illegal invaders arriving as “family units,” a claim which DNA oral swabs frequently expose as untrue. Many of the children used to gain entry by non-related adults are trafficked or purchased. Many are sexually exploited. They are a factor contributing to a 406% increase from the previous year. Of those, nearly 40% — more than from any other single country — came from Guatemala.

These are just a few harsh facts you won’t read in the rag.


Destitute invaders sue US gov’t aided by leftist lawyer

September 18, 2019

American citizens, weary of the invasion of our sovereign border, first by Mexican nationals and then by hundreds of thousands of Central Americans, have a new problem to deal with.  Feeding, clothing, housing, educating their children, providing free medical services and incarcerating the criminals among them is not enough.

These impoverished foreign nationals, warmly referred to by their advocates as “migrants,” are now suing us.

How can that be you might ask. They don’t speak English. They have broken into our country as surely as if they rammed their way through the front door of our home. They have no money to hire lawyers. 

Yet somehow they are able to accuse the U.S. government, claiming “the Trump administration has violated the rights of asylum-seekers through the arbitrary and capricious implementation of a virtual asylum ban at the southern border.”

Pretty fancy jargon for over 125 uneducated illegal aliens — described as “mothers and children.” Discerning American citizens no doubt smell a rat. An Arizona Capitol Times editorial  by former Gov. Jan Brewer illuminates the Trump administration’s implementation of DNA testing at the border, substantiating many of the children are exploited, and not even related to the adults with whom they they are traveling. Children are used to provide legitimacy to their claims of seeking asylum.

Fortunately, the U.S. Supreme Court just ruled the administration can bar illegal aliens from applying for asylum if they pass through another country — routinely Mexico — without seeking asylum there before arriving in the United States.

Hopefully, the lawsuit, filed by Virginia/D.C. based immigration lawyer Hassan M. Ahmed, will put to rest his political aspirations. Taking a substantial hit, Ahmad lost the June 11, 2019 primary for a seat in the Virginia House of Delegates — the equivalent of a state legislator in Arizona.

Describing himself as a “progressive Democrat” he threatened:

“The people of Northern Virginia need for our next representative to be more than a reliable Democratic vote; we need an advocate, someone who can work within the rules when they benefit everyone and will bring the community together to change them when they don’t.”

An anti-Second Amendment and NRA reviler who blithely flings the word “racist” around to describe Republicans, Ahmad advocated “undertaking an investigation into the extent of the damage the NRA has done to the health of our communities in Virginia, and hold this extreme organization to account.”

What he considers “extreme” doesn’t include innocent life, which has no relevance to the immoral pro-abortion crusader. He claims that both the criminal justice and immigration systems are badly broken. Hassan Ahmad must be gauging them by his own moral compass.


Illegal aliens: The stark realities

August 15, 2019

A favorite cliché is “they’re just coming to do the jobs Americans refuse to do.”

We’ve heard the mantra incessantly over the years. The open-borders/amnesty influence peddlers on the left have been phenomenally successful at getting the Beltway elite and the media to embrace their blanket platitudes about illegal alien invaders. In fact the term itself has been declared verboten by none other than Associated Press.

The deceit surges as elections near. Democrats exploit the issue to lay the groundwork for embracing a racial divide they hope will benefit them. Presidential candidates and U.S. Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, both part of this leftist horde of two dozen challenging President Trump, are vowing to create a White House office to combat “white supremacy” and hate crimes if elected.

Ignored are the vicious crimes perpetrated by illegal aliens.

This headline is a recent example: Illegal alien impregnates 11-year-old Phoenix girl.

Child rapist Carlos Jacinto Cobo-Perez must have been inspired by Enrique Jacobo-Valdez, another illegal alien with a proclivity for 11-year-olds.

Mauricio Berrar-Navidad, 29, and Carlos Palacios-Amaya, 28, both in the United States illegally, though previously deported, repeatedly raped an 11-year-old child in Maryland.

Fidel Lopez, boasting a sixth-grade education preferred raping a small dog, which subsequently had to be euthanized.

United States Illegal Alien Crime Report is filled with recent crimes committed by illegal aliens. The wide variety of criminal categories includes: Terrorism, Assault, Murder, Cop Killings. Drug Crimes, Rape, Children, DUIs, Identity Theft and Most Wanted. Spend some time on the site for a dose of harsh reality.

Don’t be conned by the open borders leftists. President Trump is right. Our sieve-like border must be secured. The safety of American citizens takes precedence over misguided and dangerous political correctness.
