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.


Jockeying for RNC chair begins in earnest

December 2, 2016

Ambitious Robert Graham picked the wrong team with anti-Trump McCain and Flake

In mid-February we reported AZ GOP chair Robert Graham maneuvers for top RNC post which included an ASU Cronkite News video with Graham replicating a McCain gaffe confusing Barack Obama with what appears to be any Republican. McCain confused Mitt Romney with Barack Obama. In Graham’s case he mistook “Mr. Trump” for Obama — not  a recommended move for a guy angling to lead the Republican National Committee.

Both mortifying videos and more are included in the linked report.

The hurdles are getting trickier for the ambitious and vindictive Robert Graham to navigate. Graham’s quest to replace former RNC Chairman Reince Priebus — who has been tapped as President-elect Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff — appears to be evaporating.

Though other names are being mentioned, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, an early Donald Trump supporter, is said to be considering running for the lead spot in the Republican Party. 

With Priebus now busy with the formation of the Trump cabinet and transition team, there is an urgency to fill the intra-party post. Unlike a cabinet position, the RNC chair doesn’t require congressional confirmation.

Christie, who formerly chaired the Republican Governors Association and has relationships with many of the party’s key donors appears to be in the advantageous catbird seat.

It should be remembered that neither Robert Graham nor his mentors John McCain and Jeff Flake attended Donald Trump’s initial rally when thousands of supporters waited in line for hours in the scorching July 11, 2015 heat at the Phoenix Convention Center to hear Trump speak. Maricopa County Chairman Tyler Bowyer hosted the event and he and Sheriff Joe Arpaio were onstage with now President-elect Trump. The two senators and Graham boycotted Trump’s subsequent Arizona appearances. McCain, who has referred to conservatives as “crazies” and has worked to purge them from elected precinct committeemen posts, eventually withdrew his lukewarm support of Trump. Blowhard Flake made headlines by making the rounds of broadcast networks telling whoever would listen that Trump was not worthy of his support — a traitorous message the liberal media were all too eager to air. With Donald Trump letting no grass grow under his feet as he puts together his team prior to his Jan. 20, 2017 inaugural — Graham should be dismissed out of hand.

Obama’s frequent traveling companion and basketball teammate Jeff Flake, always eager to promote amnesty for illegals, will be a candidate for reelection in 2018 and should feel the same sting of rejection. He represents no one but his own ego.


Religion of Peace update — more terror Nov. 28, 2016

November 29, 2016

Abdul Razak Ali Artan, an Ohio State University freshman drove his vehicle into a crowd of pedestrians at the school, then jumped out and stabbed numerous people with a butcher knife, before police officer Alan Horujko, rightly hailed as a hero, shot and killed the attacker on Monday. At least 11 victims were transported to hospitals.

PJ Media reports that in a new publication, ISIS has called for random knife attacks in “alleys, forests, beaches, and quiet neighborhoods. ” Also on the hit-list are kids engaged in sports.

Artan, 18, was a Somali refugee. He was a legal U.S. permanent resident. The city of Columbus where the campus attack took place has a large Somali population, the second largest in the United States.

ABC News reveals Artan’s Facebook rant that was posted just minutes before his bloody rampage began.

Ohio Governor John Kasich released a statement that state residents’ “thoughts and prayers go out to the Ohio State community.” The “thoughts a prayers” message is heard so often under these circumstances, the words are beginning to ring hallow.  What  Kasich, and every other governor should do is join together 50 strong to implore the federal government to impose stiffer immigration standards and shut down the influx of unable-to-be-vetted “refugees.” The feds are not doing their job to fulfill these key words in the Preamble to the United States Constitution: “….. establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity….

Although the Somali Student Association has a prominent presence on campus, (check out the audience in the opening frames of video link) Artan, now being referred to as a terror suspect, was offended over what he regarded as too few prayer rooms to accommodate Muslim students.

On the White House website we are treated to Barack Obama’s condolences (in both English and Spanish) on the death of Cuba’s brutal Communist dictator Fidel Castro. He also lets us know he has pardoned the national turkey, There is not, however, a single word referencing this latest terrorist attack on American soil.  He didn’t even say that if he had a son, he would look like Abdul — as he did with Trayvon MartinHe’ll probably get around to it when he returns from the golf course.


Obama’s DOJ continues implementing absurdities

November 25, 2016

Putting the (non-citizen) chickens in charge of guarding the (American) henhouse

It seems like an endless wait, but soon enough the Obama administration will be a thing of the past. We might want to forget that throughout the past eight years Barack Obama never gave up on fulfilling his campaign threat to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” *

Yet not remembering what this country has been through sets up a repetition of the same. Corruption has been a hallmark of the Obama years.

We must never forget the nadir into which we have been plunged and the preposterous policies implemented — such as this:

Fox News reports that the Denver Sheriff’s Department was fined $10,000 for hiring only U.S. citizens. We couldn’t make this stuff up.

The Department of Justice released this press release titled “Justice Department Settles Immigration-Related Discrimination Claim Against the Denver Sheriff Department.

From the Fox report:

The Denver Sheriff’s Department set out to hire scores of deputies last year to lessen the burden on its staff and cut millions in overtime.

It advertised for prospects, and included U.S. citizenship as a requirement. By this past spring, it had hired 200 deputies.

The Justice Department did not congratulate the agency ––  instead, it slapped Colorado’s largest sheriff’s department with a $10,000 fine and a host of steps it must take to address what was described as discriminatory hiring.

In a summary of the settlement on its website, the Justice Department said that in insisting on citizenship, the Denver Sheriff’s Department violated an anti-discrimination provision in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) that forbids employers from hiring only U.S. citizens except in cases where it is mandated “by law, regulation, executive order or government contract.”

* “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

— Barack Obama, October 30, 2008

 “We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”

— Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008

 


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.”


Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter

November 20, 2016

As we enter this Thanksgiving week, we’d like to give thanks for the wisdom and wit of Dr. Thomas Sowell, still writing splendidly and imparting his own special brand of insight in his 86th year.

This post is not a break from politics — few among us actually yearn for that as we still revel in the recent election results and now await President-elect Donald Trump’s full cabinet appointments and inauguration. Americans spoke decisively with the 2016 election of the Donald Trump / Mike Pence ticket and Republican majorities in the U.S. House and Senate — having had their fill of “Hope and Change” that was mostly played out on golf courses and a world-wide apology tour.

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to readWhat now for Obamacare and the Court?

Dr. Sowell’s column was posted in the New Hampshire Union Leader.  The far-left Arizona Republic no longer has an op-ed page. The newspaper only prints ops. Its own. Opinions that are liberally flavored with its favorite seasonings of open borders salsa and far-left extremism, as they routinely endorse George Soros funded candidates, as evidenced here and here.


Hillary Clinton should be indicted, not elected

November 3, 2016

What will it take for the Arizona Republic to withdraw its endorsement?

With less than a week before Election Day, Hillary Clinton’s scandals have grown at breakneck speed. Extending past the private mail server located in her basement which compromised national security and the money-making machine and pay for play scheme, selling access to then-Secretary of State Clinton —  inextricably entangled with the Clinton Foundation. We’ve read with disgust how Democrat strategist and interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile acknowledged in a now disclosed email to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, “From time to time I get the (townhall/debate) questions in advance.” Guess who she passes them along to? 

As the walls began closing in, Hillary Clinton’s closest aides and advisers were given immunity.

National Review’s Andrew C. McCarthy writes, “The Clinton E-mails Are Critical to the Clinton Foundation influence peddling Investigation.”

All of this deceit leads to at the highest levels. The latest disclosures involve recordings detailing that FBI agents felt they had sufficient evidence to pursue an indictment of Hillary Clinton, but were shut down by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Department of Justice. 

Yes, the same Loretta Lynch who had a private jet-board meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport — ostensibly to discuss Bill’s golf game and grandchildren — as Hillary’s mounting legal problems were worsening. Despite reaching political heights, the self identified po’ boy from Hope, Arkansas still function as a power obsessed hick.

Even Barack Obama is weighing in on the FBI‘s investigation, as he watches his ‘third term’ drop like a rock, declaring, “We don’t operate on innuendo, incomplete information or leaks.” Democrats Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, great fans of the FBI Director just last month, are now piling on James Comey for reopening the investigation. The FBI Director’s term is ten years long for a reason.

Bypassing mere politics by a mile, with raw criminality front and center, the likelihood of a Clinton indictment is worth betting on.
