Paul Ryan: intent on funding Muslim “refugees“

December 14, 2015

The time has come to act in the best interests of Americans and ditch the PC blather

House Speaker Paul Ryan was heralded as an economic genius when Mitt Romney tapped him as his vice presidential running mate in 2012. It turns out Ryan, now the House Speaker, is a go-along-to-get-along guy.  And the one he is most intent on getting along with is Barack Obama.

Appearing more and more like kid werewolf Eddie Munster, Ryan is preparing to issue Obama a blank check in the year-end $1.1 trillion dollar omnibus to dangerously admit and resettle in the U.S. impossible to vet Syrian, Iraqi and other Muslims claiming refugee status. The omnibus is expected to be made public today and voted on Wednesday.

The House Freedom Caucus, touted as conservative, is not demanding Ryan block funding for “refugee” resettlement immigration.

Conservative commentator Mark Levin is quoted as saying, “These people inside Washington — they don’t get it. This is World War III. Could you imagine during World War II or World War I having these discussions? World War I, under a hideous president, Woodrow Wilson, World War II under an almost equally hideous president, FDR — did they worry about any of this stuff? Was this the national debate? The national debate was how to secure the nation and destroy the enemy and how to destroy the enemy as quickly as possible — victory, victory, victory. Do these guys even talk about victory? This entire debate is absurd.”

And that broad coalition of partners Obama claims is joining in the fight to stop ISIS? We can’t count on much help from Germany as Chancellor Angela Merkel on Sunday brushed off what a Germany magazine said was a request from the United States to provide more military help in the fight against Islamic terrorists. “I believe Germany is fulfilling its part and we don’t need to talk about new issues related to this question at the moment,” she said.

Syndicated columnist Larry Kudlow began his political life as a dedicated liberal. Along the way, he cleared his head and during Reagan’s first term, Kudlow was appointed associate director for economics and planning in the Office of Management and Budget, working closely with the president. This brief bio is provided as a backdrop to reading his National Review column, “I’ve Changed. This Is War. Seal the Borders. Stop the Visas,” in which he describes what he calls his hardline shift from an immigration reformer.

His article begs to be read.


Obama’s delayed, disappointing speech and UPDATE

December 8, 2015

Some long and hard thought was given to writing about Barack Obama’s speech, (video) delivered from the Oval Office on Sunday evening.  Several problems arose. Looming largest is the fact that his arrogance and conspicuous disregard for the United States of America — the nation he is supposed to be leading —- make it difficult to scrutinize his words using more integrity than he exhibits. Obama waited from Wednesday morning until Sunday night to address the jihadist terror attacks that killed 14 and wounded 21 others attending an office Christmas Party in San Bernardino.

Since clenched teeth and keyboard dexterity don’t go hand in hand, we gutlessly backed off that particular post.

As it turns out, that decision was a stroke of luck for the readers of Seeing Red AZ. Thomas Sowell did an extraordinary job in coolly analyzing, “The President’s Speech.”

If you are up to watching Obama broaden his gun control rhetoric or cunningly discuss the illusionary “65 countries that have joined an American-led coalition” against ISIS — which he persists in calling ISIL — the link in the first sentence will transport you to Obamaland, where heinous acts of terrorism are facilitated by…..climate change.

Americans are becoming weary of being told that Islam is a peaceful, tolerant faith merely plagued by a few extremists. Increased gun sales in the wake of bloody violence carried out by radicalized Muslims clearly point to angst among our own citizens.

Citizens looking for inspired leadership from the President of the United States, continue to be painfully disappointed. You’ll find far greater wisdom from Dr. Thomas Sowell.

After CA Jihad attack: It’s time to rethink K-1 Visas

December 4, 2015

Undemanding conduit for tech savvy terrorists

The San Bernardino Islamic jihadist massacre that rocked our sensibilities on Wednesday raises yet another immigration question.

Reports indicate that terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, was a U.S. citizen whose parents are from Pakistan. In 2013 he brought Tashfeen Malik, 27, a Pakistani he met online, to the U.S. with him from Saudi Arabia on a K-1 Visa. His co-terrorist Malik, the mother of an infant daughter was easily able to become a lawful permanent resident —- though we now know she pledged allegiance to ISIS on her Facebook page.

How? Through a obscure machination known as the K-1 Visa authorized by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Although a K-1 or “Fiancée Visa” usually take a few months to process and payment of a nominal fee, it allows immediate immigration and eligibility for legal employment in the United States. With the relative ease of bypassing more cumbersome application procedures, K-1’s are considered to be a high fraud visa category.

To curtail abuse of this foolishly generous system, the couple must provide evidence that they have actually met in person. Both must be of legal age and not already married to each other or to anyone else. The K-1 visa holder is required to marry his or her U.S. citizen petitioner within 90 days of entry. All of these regulations appear to be enforced by the honor system since there is no discernible requirement for federal oversight.

In 2014, the Department of State issued a total of 35,925 K-1 visas to fiancées of U.S. citizens. Including K-2 and K-3 ‘derivative’ categories — mostly for children of fiancées — a total of 41,488 such K category visas were issued including adoptive, step-parent, and half-sibling relationships.  A K-4 visa is an even further extended derivative visa issued to the child of a K-3 visa holder. So now we’re getting into the realm of grandchildren.

Where it stops, who monitors this system and how screening is implemented is anyone’s guess. Meanwhile our world becomes less safe as Barack Obama opens the floodgates to tens of thousands more Muslim Syrians claiming refugee status.

McCain joins Soros pushing “refugee” invasion

November 23, 2015

George_Soros_John_McCain

As astute citizens collecting facts in advance of the crucial 2016 elections, a filter might seem necessary since there is so much to absorb — some fact, some fancy.  This morning we provide a mega dose of the factual, dating back several years.

In 2008, WND’s Jerome Corsi wrote the informative “John McCain funded by George Soros since 2001,” noting that McCain founded the Alexandria, Va.-based Reform Institute as a vehicle to receive funding from George Soros’ Open Society Institute, Teresa Heinz Kerry’s Tides Foundation and several other prominent ‘non-profit’ organizations. McCain used the institute to promote his political agenda and provide compensation to key campaign operatives between elections.”

Meet the open borders family: McCain, Hernandez, Soros, and the “Reform Institute comes via exhaustive research by Ed Morrissey (going back to 2005) and syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin, both undisputed conservatives. Morrissey can now be read at Hot Air.

Recently, Pamela Geller exposed diabolical billionaire George Soros as integral to the EU plan to aid the Muslim invasion and subsequent destruction of Europe by promoting acceptance at least a million “asylum-seekers” annually. Like McCain, Soros glibly tosses around the words “migrant” and “comprehensive,” as he castigates Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban for subordinating the “human rights of asylum-seekers and migrants to the security of borders.”

For thinking Americans and our European allies, secure borders are the decisive choice!

Using gumballs to make his presentation, Roy Beck of NumbersUSA brilliantly illustrates the fact that unbridled immigration will not help the world’s needy. Nearly 3 million have viewed this video. If you’re one of them, watch it again to allow the facts to marinate while you remember that he is not describing Muslims coming from nations that despise our freedoms, have no intent to acclimate and believe in Islamic supremacy and world domination.

Listen closely to John McCain, running for another six-year U.S. Senate term and Lindsey Graham, a single digit candidate for the presidency, explain to Tucker Carlson why the United States needs to increase the numbers of Syrian refugees. Their stiff demeanors and irrational blather appear to be part of a comedy skit, except they’re deadly serious. After the Islamic jihadist bloodbaths recently in Paris and Mali, that’s clearly the problem.

 


Catastrophic consequences of not closing borders

November 22, 2015

This Sunday before Thanksgiving, we are thankful for the wisdom of Dr. Thomas Sowell.

Today we invite you to take a few minutes to read his latest column titled, “Stop the Bleeding.”  As only he can, Dr. Sowell weaves a connective thread between the recent horrific acts of terrorism and the absolute need for nations to close their borders. In fact he goes a step further describing those “pursuing the will-o’-the-wisp called “comprehensive” immigration reform.”

Arizonans, living in a border state abutting Mexico, have more than a passing knowledge of that charade and its persistent perpetrators. John McCain paired on this issue with his then-senate colleague Jon Kyl. They were thwarted by outraged Americans who flooded senate phone and fax lines, causing a D.C. switchboard communications meltdown. 

After Kyl’s retirement, Jeff Flake, who won by the slimmest of margins, was all too happy to jump on-board the amnesty express, uniting with McCain, Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham as the RINO contingent of the Gang of Eight. They were joined by liberal cohorts Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Robert Menendez, and Michael Bennet. This effort also failed, but it will resurrect again.

Don’t believe the deceit that our immigration system is broken. The only thing that is broken is the will to effectively enforce it.

Today this Reuters news report is headlined, “Authorities missed many ‘red flags’ before Paris shootings.”

Please watch this shocking video* and ask yourself how that could be. It turns out there have been ample warnings throughout Western Europe. This is without a doubt one of the most disturbing videos you will ever see. Be sure to pass it on. Knowledge is power.

Finger-to-wind Kyrsten Sinema casts her lot with GOP

November 20, 2015

So what do you do when you’re a liberal Democrat up for reelection for the first time in a newly formed swing distinct where registered Independents prevail and Republicans remain a factor? Ask onetime Green Party candidate turned Democrat, Kyrsten Sinema.

Sinema voted with a majority of Republicans, including the entire Arizona GOP delegation Thursday.

Forty-seven other House Democrats also jumped ship — voting to halt admissions and increase security checks on Syrian and Iraqi nationals claiming refugee status to enter the United States. With her vote, Sinema defied Barack Obama‘s veto threat.

The global threat cannot be ignored. Just this morning a luxury hotel in Mali, frequented by tourists, was the scene of yet another bloody rampage as Islamic terrorists seized 170 guests and staff in an ongoing hostage-taking that left at least twenty seven people dead and others wounded. The gunmen and grenade throwers shouted the all too familiar jihadist murderous slogan, “Allahu Akbar!” meaning “Allah is greater” in Arabic.

H.R. 4038, the American Security Against Foreign Enemies (SAFE Act) passed 289-137 — just two days after it was introduced. The bill, which was taken up on the heels of this revelation, now moves to the senate.

Sixty percent (60%) of ‘Likely U.S. Voters’ oppose the settling of Syrian refugees in the state where they live, according to this latest Rasmussen Reports national survey. Just 28% favor their state taking in these unable to be sufficiently vetted Muslim “refugees.”

Seventy-seven percent (77%) of voters are now concerned that giving thousands of Syrians asylum poses a national security risk to the United States, with 52% who are ‘Very Concerned.’ 

It’s a good bet political extremist and once vocal open-borders proponent Kyrsten Sinema has more than a passing interest in these numbers. Her retooled political future could be determined by them.


Formerly fawning reporters turn on Obama

November 18, 2015

This is Barack Obama’s full press conference at the G-20 Summit in Antalya, Turkey which includes several reporters asking tough questions regarding U.S. policy in pursuing Islamic Jihadists.  The usually compliant media openly expressed frustration with Obama’s weak response to ISIS — which he alone refers to as ISIL.

In this shorter clip, CNN’s Jim Acosta bluntly asked, “I wanted to go back to something you said to Margaret (Brennan) earlier when you said you have not underestimated ISIS’s abilities. This is an organization that you once described as a ‘JayVee Team,’ that evolved into a force that has now occupied territory in Iraq and Syria and is now able to use that safe haven to launch attacks in other parts of the world. How is that not underestimating their capabilities? And how is that “contained,” quite frankly? And I think a lot of Americans have this frustration that they see that the United States has the greatest military in the world, it has the backing of nearly every other country in the world when it comes to taking on ISIS. I guess the question is, and if you’ll forgive the language, is why can’t we take out these bastards?”

Obama says the United States must welcome the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees, who are “subjected to vigorous screening and security checks” — something experts say is virtually impossible. He makes this claim despite the fact that at least two of the Paris terrorists entered Europe as part of the flood of “refugees” leaving Syria.

In the current GQ magazine which features Obama on the cover, he looked ahead to life after his 15 remaining months in the White House saying he has fantasized about owning a professional basketball team or holding the commissioner’s job for the National Basketball Association. Obama, an avid sports fan, couldn’t do as much damage in the sporting arena as he has as the ineffectual leader of the free world and an embarrassing Commander-in-Chief.

Since Jeff Flake routinely plays basketball with Obama perhaps he could join the soon-to-be-former president at his dream job with the NBA.  It would give the unpopular Flake another chance to take his shirt off and free up the Arizona senate seat for an actual conservative.
