Memorial_Day _Hero _saluted_by_a_scout

This day is set aside to pay tribute to America’s military personnel — and their families — who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country

Following a tradition of gratitude, five thousand Los Angeles area residents —- including Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops —- made their annual visit to the Los Angeles National Cemetery. They were there to pay their respects to military members by placing flags on each of the graves. As each flag was affixed, the soldier whose name was read aloud received a salute.

The annual flag placement day tradition is followed each Memorial Day weekend to honor those who have lost their lives serving in the U.S. military.  The first interment dates to 1889. 

Watch this inspirational news video* to hear what the special tradition means to these young people who are fortunate to have been taught about the sacrifices others have made to ensure their many freedoms.

We invite you to listen to this moving rendition of “Taps” played by the U.S. Marine Band.

The United States Department of Veterans Affairs has a fact-filled site with a treasure trove of historic information regarding the observance of Memorial Day.

Obama picks wrong threat to global security & Update

May 22, 2015

With huge swaths of the Middle East in turmoil as Islamic fundamentalist Jihadists recruit, kidnap and rape young women and children, behead Christians and slaughter Jews, Barack Obama addressed the Coast Guard Academy graduating class of 2015 to talk about….the grave threat posed by global warming…er…climate change.

He says, “So, going forward, I’ve committed to doubling the pace at which we cut carbon pollution.”

What happened to onetime Al-Qaeda-offshoot, ISIS?

Last year Barack Obama referred to ISIS as “jayvee,” as in “junior varsity.”

That group he so breezily dismissed as ”jayvee” now “controls a volume of resources and territory unmatched in the history of extremist organizations, ”makes $3 million per day selling oil on the black market, battles for control of Iraq’s largest dam and the power supply for the city of Mosul, is spreading into Lebanon, threatening to starve or slaughter “at least 40,000 members of the Yazidi sect,” organizes protests in the Netherlands and is stepping up its recruitment of Westerners, according to Defense in Depth. These facts from July 2014, have exacerbated. Since then the world has witnessed even more atrocities in the name of Allah committed by radicals with ties to ISIS, including mass beheadings of hundreds at a time for the “crime” of being Christian. 

As cities fall to its control, public executions, amputations as punishment for petty crimes along with imposition of harsh Sharia law keep the terrified populace in check.

But as Obama delivered the commencement address (video) at the U. S. Coast Guard Academy Wednesday he warned graduates climate change is one of the largest threats the military academy graduates will have to face.

In his speech, Obama said denying climate change or refusing to deal with it is negligence and “dereliction of duty,” adding, “denying it or refusing to deal with it endangers our national security.”

“Climate change is one of those most severe threats. This is not just a problem for countries on the coasts or for certain regions of the world. Climate change will impact every country on the planet. No nation is immune. So I am here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security. And make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country. So we need to act and we need to act now,” he warned.

Update-tag

The world understands what liberal Americans still want to deny —- which is the fact that Barack Obama has set out deliberately to destroy America and is a pathetic joke sitting in a position of great power. Watch and listen to these Egyptian commentators discussing Obama referring to Climate Change as the “most serious threat to global security.”

“You people need to wake up!” one angry commentator, a retired Egyptian general raised his voice and pleaded with Americans:  “America is getting weaker by the day under this president.” Discussing ISIS they said, “this man ignores the evidence of his own eyes,” calling him “an ISIS loving president.”


GOP aids Obama’s stealth immigration, climate change power grab & UPDATE

May 19, 2015

Republicans foolishly poised to give Obama fast track on Trans Pacific Partnership, providing irreversible authority, since treaties supersede statutes under U.S. Constitution

This is huge,” Dick Morris tells America‘s Forum host J.D. Hayworth as he discusses Obama’s attempt to fast track Trans Pacific Partnership.*  (video under link)

“I hope that everybody listening takes action, call your senator about it.  If he‘s a Republican. he‘s voting wrong.  I don’t think the people understand that in this deal, which is a trade agreement among Australia, Malaysia, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, Canada, United States, Mexico, Peru and Chili, there is a provision for free flow of workers, just like in the European Union.

What that means is unrestricted immigration.  It means literally that Congress would not have the authority to restrict immigration, because a treaty supersedes a statute under our constitution.”

Morris continues, “Obama is going to try to circumvent the legislative process and use the treaty-making authority do stuff that Congress can’t repeal, and a future president can’t change. As he enters the seventh year of his presidency, that’s what he’s focused on.  Under the guise of a NAFTA-like trade agreement it provides for unrestricted immigration within these eleven countries, which means any Mexican can come here to the United States legally, stay here, be naturalized, become a citizen and vote — and Congress can’t do anything about it. The Constitution enumerates the powers of Congress. One of them is Immigration and Naturalization.  This supersedes that and it does so for all time. Because you can’t repeal a treaty unless the other signatories agree.’

“It also could become the way to get Climate Change in,” Morris warns.  “He’s taking the whole legislative agenda and putting it in a treaty and getting it ratified and then it becomes as good as a Constitutional Amendment.

In this case Obama is putting it in a treaty and asking congress to approve fast track authority.  The idea that with all the power this president has grabbed, the Republicans are about to give him fast track, which means he can do  any trade agreement he wants and ratification is almost automatic, and the Democrats are opposing this. It is entirely Republican votes that are pushing it and they just don’t understand what’s in the damn bill.”

“This is not amnesty,“ Morris tells Hayworth. “Amnesty is for people who are already here.”

Watch this vitally important interview beginning at 5:52.

 * Besides the United States there are 11 other countries involved in  the TPP: :Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.

Update-tag

On Thurs. May 21, 2015, by a roll call vote of 62 to 38, this is the Senate vote on HR 1314. This measure is expected to be the vehicle in the Senate guaranteeing Obama’s trade promotion authority. Check out the votes of Arizona’s Senators.


Wise Mom delivers alarming message

May 10, 2015

Muslim colonization in USA under auspices of United Nations, US State Dept. and influenced by powerful Muslim supremacist group, Organization of Islamic Cooperation

Ann Corcoran, Editor of Refugee Resettlement Watch, and author of Refuge Resettlement and the  Hijra to America, is a Mom on a mission. We share her vitally important message on this Mother’s Day.

In the clearest of terms and armed with ample information, this remarkable woman delivers a message that should be shared with everyone on your list.

What she has to say is alarming in its scope and ultimate impact on the security of the United States, our families and liberty. Truth is not “Islamophobia.” Do not be intimidated by meaningless labels hurled by the agendized left. Be concerned about disturbing facts.

Middle class incomes plunge as immigration surges

April 24, 2015

Congressional report confirms dire predictions

Wages of America’s middle class have dropped below 1970s levels as immigration has surged 325 percent, according to a new congressional report that puts to rest leftwing claims that native-born Americans are economically enhanced by greater immigration.

The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) report studied immigration and middle class income from 1945-2013 and found that as immigration slowed between 1945 and 1970, American incomes increased. But when immigration expanded, the incomes of the bottom 90 percent of Americans went flat and then dropped beginning in 2000.

In the report to the Senate Judiciary Committee, the CRS confirmed that the foreign-born population of the United States surged 324.5 percent, from 9,740,000 to 41,348,066, from 1970 to 2013. The impact is not insignificant.

Competition for university placement and fewer jobs will increase as our elected representatives continue to ignore the crisis, as the influx of illegal invaders continues unabated.

Yet Barack Obama has virtually erased our southern border. Using executive orders  that even he declared were unlawful, (video) he has granted amnesty to millions of illegals, confident when they vote, they’ll show their appreciation by voting a straight Democrat ticket.

Additionally, he ignores reports of Islamist terrorists entering our country through our unguarded southern border.

Read the fact-filled report by Paul Bedard and the dismal economic predictions in the Washington Examiner. If you have concerns about America’s future and the lives your children and theirs will face, this is reading definitely worth your time.

U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) a steadfast voice exposing amnesty schemes said it best back in 2014, “Never in recent memory has the divide between the everyday citizen and the political elite been as wide as it is now. A sovereign nation establishes rules about who can enter, work, and live within its borders. In every imaginable way, the President has worked to dismantle these rules -— on the border, in our courts, through our visa system, through our asylum system, through our exit-entry system. And with this planned executive action, the President proposes to scrub away what remains of these rules. And Senate Democrats will have been partners in its commission.”

Since then, it’s all too clear Republicans have been equally complicit, falling in line with Obama’s schemes as in Thursday’s confirmation vote of U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch who has acknowledged she will continue to support Obama’s policies. John McCain, standing for reelection couldn’t afford to be in the “yea” column, but his toadies Jeff Flake and Lindsey Graham voted with the unified Democrats.

Have you had enough yet?


McCain hosts Sedona shindig: Your invitation is in the mail

April 23, 2015

Well, not actually.

Although John McCain wants your money and your vote, he doesn’t want YOU. According to the website, “registration for this invitation-only, closed-press event is full.”

These are the high-profile folks you could have mingled with at the third annual weekend conference, if only you had made the cut. As you nose around the site, be sure to take a gander at the high dollar donor list, with categories ranging from “$100,000 and above” down to a paltry “$24,999 and under.” The McCain Presidential Campaign and Bloomberg Philanthropies are among the eye catchers, but San Francisco-based Democrat donors Lisa and Greg Wendt, should ring a bell or two. As FrontPage magazine reports, under the guise of the benign sounding “Arizona Grassroots Action PAC,” the longtime McCain contributors helped raise nearly $300,000 to oust elected conservative committeemen —- the backbone activists of the AZ GOP —- who voted in a stinging rebuke to censure McCain in 2014. Colorado businessman Gregory Maffei and the Wendt’s wrote the PAC’s largest checks.

 Leftist Democrats are integral to McCain’s programs. Last year, Hillary Clinton, who McCain has referred to as a “rock star,” was featured.  Past speakers besides Clinton, have included “Vice President Joe Biden, Actor/Director Ben Affleck, CEO’s from major corporations and Presidents, Prime Ministers, Foreign Ministers, experts and civil society leaders from around the world.” This year even Actress/Cougar Demi Moore who co-founded a group fighting sexual exploitation of children, will be in attendance.

While National Security is prominently featured on McCain’s Sedona Forum agenda, not a word is mentioned about border security or the fact that besides not having a clue who is entering our country, we are losing our national identity as reported Wednesday by the Washington Examiner. The newspaper points to recent U.S. Census figures that indicate a record 51 million immigrants in 8 years will account for 82% of U.S. growth. The Center for Immigration Studies analyzed the statistics and concluded that by 2023, one in seven U.S. residents will be an immigrant, rising to one in five by 2060 when the legal and illegal immigrant population is expected to total 78 million and minorities will be the majority.

Staring 80 in the eye, the egotistical and mean-spirited McCain is running for yet another six-year-term. We have a choice. Get onboard.


Elephant-in-the-room issue no presidential candidate touches

April 15, 2015

New presidential candidates emerge nearly daily to tell Americans of their vision on every issue from foreign policy, the national debt, jobs, education, energy independence, health care, crime, the growing racial divide and instability in the Middle East. But these important topics all take a back seat to the major one that no one addresses.

The reputable Judicial Watch reports that Mexican authorities have confirmed that ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas. The linked article is a must read.

In September 2014 Bloomberg News covered the fact that Islamic State extremists were discussing infiltrating the U.S. through our southern border with Mexico. Francis Taylor, under-secretary for intelligence and analysis at the Department of Homeland Security, told a Senate committee that Sunni militants have been tracked on social-media sites.

In May 2011, Seeing Red AZ posted the fact-filled Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns. The post includes a photo dating back to 1980, showing extremist Hispanic members of the anti-American MEChA meeting with then-PLO leader Yasser Arafat, with a picture of the Ayatollah Khomeini staring down from a place of prominence on the wall.

Then hop over to WND’s 2001 report ‘Arab terrorists’ crossing border. It is more relevant than ever, noting there has been a “tremendous increase in OTM’s (law enforcement’s term for ‘Other Than Mexicans’). Illegals from the former Soviet Union, Asia, and the Middle East are joining the flood of Mexicans, Central and South Americans — all slipping in through our incredibly accessible and porous Southern border. Apprehensions have included illegals from the Sudan, Iraq, and even Iran.” Arabs are learning Spanish in order to blend in with the Hispanics. 

ABC 10 News in San Diego filed this report detailing the long-established foothold the Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah has in the adjacent border town of Tijuana. This report was dated May 4, 2011. At that point, the terrorists had been in the town an estimated 15 to 20 years. Among the group’s deadly attacks were the bombing the U.S. embassy in Beirut and Israeli embassy in Argentina.

It’s difficult to come to terms with the fact that  those who were toddlers during the horrific events that resulted in the deaths of 3,000 people on September 11, 2001 are undereducated young adults today with little knowledge of what befell us as 19 Islamic terrorists hijacked and commandeered commercial airliners into NYC’s World Trade Center Towers. Those murderous assaults were part of a series of four coordinated attacks, hitting the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and taking down a plane over Pennsylvania as they sought to strike fear into the heart of America. Not only is the topic oddly neglected in schools across the U.S., but those who are running for the highest office in the land have given it short shrift.

The imminent threat is worthy of discussion.
