Finally…SCOTUS hears oral arguments on DACA

November 13, 2019

In a victory for the Trump administration, oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court began Tuesday morning on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (which morphed into the acronym DACA). President Trump moved to end the program in 2017 but was thwarted by lower court rulings.

Estimates of those affected by Obama’s political construct via an executive order, bypassing congress, now range between 700,000 to 800,000. The flawed premise was to bestow the gift of U.S. citizenship to those who needed only affirm they were 16 years of age or younger when they initially entered the United States or arrived by 2007. They merely had to declare that they have been of good moral character since initially being brought to the U.S. as children by their invader parents — illegally. Verifying how many came as babes in arms or ably propelled themselves over the border last month is impossible to substantiate. Many of those who claim to have been brought as babes in arms are now grandparents.

Government attorneys representing the Trump administration told the court that the program “sanctions the ongoing violation of federal law by more than half a million people,” arguing it is not authorized by immigration statutes. They stated leaving DACA in place interferes with the ability to send “a message that leaves no doubt regarding the clear, consistent and transparent enforcement of the immigration laws.”

A ruling isn’t expected until mid 2020.

DACA worked hand-in-hand with another scam known as the D.R.E.A.M. Act. The acronym stood for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors. It was introduced as S.1291. The 2002 bill was drafted before the speech police ruled the words “illegal” and “alien” unacceptable, so they were used extensively throughout the bill.

The D.R.E.A.M. Act, an actual nightmare, whose recipients slickly morphed into “Dreamers,” was a liberal dream come true, a warm and fuzzy piece of legislation also lacking any means of verification while permanently swelling the ranks of the Democrat Party. Read SRAZ’s complete 2016 post,D.R.E.A.M. Act morphs into dreamy amnesty.” Knowledge is power.

Those who claim this status have obtained protection from deportation under DACA, which permits them to work legally in the United States and also provides access to myriad benefits including driver’s licenses, in-state tuition rates at state colleges and universities, education grants, the ability to apply for Social Security Numbers — required to claim Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a major tax benefit for lower-income earners — which allows recipients to participate in Social Security and Medicare. 

The open border, pro-illegals Arizona Republic runs a bizarre and insulting op-ed by Arizona’s worst governor, Janet Napolitano. A radical leftist noted for her blasé retort when frustrated Arizonans pleaded for border action: “Show me a 50-foot fence, and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder,” she was at the Supreme Court yesterday opposing the Trump administration. We are not linking to her convoluted rationale. She resigned the governor’s post to become Obama’s Secretary of Homeland INsecurity. Her latest argument is, “Ending DACA is profoundly negative.”


Dems shift strategy: Dump “quid pro quo,” replace with “extortion”

November 12, 2019

“We’ve got to get off this “quid pro quo thing” and compare Trump to a mob boss”

Democrats have a tricky new scheme afoot in their effort to overturn the 2016 election that so enraged them. The latest twist is to alter language, replacing words they regard as too esoteric for their minions, as they launch a baseless impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Jim Himes, a leftist congressman you’ve likely never heard of, shamelessly tells “Meet the Press” host, Chuck Todd, that Latin isn’t the way to generate support from the hoi polloi base of commoners that put elitists like him in office. They are dumping the term “quid pro quo” in favor of “extortion and bribery” which resonates with the low information Dem base who still watch reruns of “The Godfather.”

Himes is a gun confiscator, pro-abortion and open border, earning him an “F” rating from Conservative Review. He serves with Sen. Richard Blumenthal who deceitfully attempted to pass himself off as a combat veteran and was still elected by the reliable leftists in Connecticut.

This is the loaded question put to Himes* by network interviewer Todd, and Himes’ response:

CHUCK TODD: Do you feel as if that word (quid pro quo) does not penetrate the seriousness with what happened?

REP. JIM HIMES: Well I have two problems with quid pro quo. Number one, when you’re trying to persuade the American people of something that is really pretty simple, which is that the President acted criminally and extorted in the way a mob boss would extort somebody, a vulnerable foreign country, it’s probably best not to use Latin words to explain it. But the other thing I object to is that this is where the Republicans went. Extortion doesn’t require a “you give me this, and I’ll give you that” kind of quid pro quo. It simply requires using your muscle to get something that you don’t have a right to. So look, and by the way, of course the crowning absurdity here is now they’re all pretty much admitting because Ambassador Sondland has refreshed his recollection, they’re all basically admitting there was a quid pro quo. But gosh it wasn’t that bad, it was exactly the same thing as Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton. So look we gotta get off this quid pro quo thing because it’s complicated, they’ve already attested to the fact that it occurred and what we’re dealing with here is corruption, abuse of power in a way that damaged American national security.

On his own Twitter page, Himes goes full-fledge urbane, describing himself with pretentious, Viking-like mead making imagery and referring to himself as an “apiarist,” rather than a beekeeper:

“Connecticut Congressman. Reader. Runner. Swimmer. Apiarist. And I make maple syrup. And mead.”

Rep. Himes is one heck of an impressive guy! He reads, swims and makes his own honey-based joy juice, all while contorting language in an effort to bring down the President of the United States. But Himes remains compliant. This language shift is the latest scheme the Dems are employing in unison. They are willing marionettes, with Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff pulling the strings.

Michael Bloomberg magically recreates himself…again

November 9, 2019

As Democrat presidential candidates are imploding, former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg is suddenly being touted as the Democrats latest shining star. After word-slurring Joe Biden began collapsing like a punctured hot air balloon, post-heart attack Bernie resembles burnt toast. Elizabeth Warren has promised so many freebies, including a $57 trillion Medicare-for-all plan guaranteed “not to raise taxes on the middle class,” along with tuition-free college, that even her fellow leftists doubt her economic schemes are sustainable and are abandoning her sinking ship.

The rest of the 2020 Dem pack (chart) are dropping like flies or hanging on by their fingernails.

Lacking a political compass, Bloomberg offers a little something to resonate with multiple groups. As a leftist political voyeur he’s spend more time stealing furtive glances at political parties than engaging with them. He’s been a Democrat, a Republican, and a registered Independent, before returning to the Dem fold. Endorsing Hillary Clinton for president, he announced, she “was the right choice.”

He’s pro-abortion and opposes building a much needed wall along our southern border, instead advocating a “path to citizenship” for illegal invaders who have no respect for our laws or sovereignty.

Bloomberg spearheaded Everytown for Gun Safety, Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action, a league of gun control advocacy groups, using the mantra of “combating gun violence” to further restrictions. The ultimate goal is disarming law-abiding American citizens.

What di-stink-squishes Bloomberg above all else is his unconcealed desire to curtail Americans’ Second Amendment rights. He’s the Dem’s point man on their federal gun registry and confiscation agenda, having devoted years of his career and $millions to gun control and climate change programs. Forbes recently named Bloomberg the eighth richest person in the world, with $52.4 billion.

As political chameleon Michael Bloomberg gains momentary momentum due to voter fatigue with the current leftist candidates, it will be President Donald Trump who emerges victorious. It is his effectiveness that has made him the Dem’s punching bag and promoted the farcical impeachment circus.


Sanity prevails: Tucson rejects ‘sanctuary city’ status

November 6, 2019

Voters overwhelmingly declare, “No sanc you!”

Tucson voters soundly rejected Prop 205 Tuesday, tossing out the prospect of characterizing the city as foolish by becoming Arizona’s first sanctuary city. The final vote was 71.40 against the ballot measure. A scant 28.60 voted in favor of sanity run amok.

A far left group with the benign sounding name, “Tucson Families Free and Together,” led the ballot initiative. The flawed measure was widely opposed by local leaders of both political parties, including the Pima County Sheriff, Tucson Police officials and Tucson’s majority Democrat city council and mayor.

Among the left-wing organizations supporting Prop. 205 were ACLU of Arizona; Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), Tucson; Planned Parenthood; Standing Up for Racial Justice and No More Deaths.

The intent of the rejected ballot proposition was for the city of Tucson to formally limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities — in violation of state law. In 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld provisions of Arizona‘s ‘Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act,’ known as SB 1070, (signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer in 2010) that required cooperation.


Mexico: Our murderous south of the border “neighbors” & Update

November 5, 2019

Massacre of mothers and children traveling to a wedding ambushed in three separate vehicles 

The U.K.’s DailyMail.com covers the horrific slaughter of three mothers and six of their young children in full, graphic detail. They were all American citizens living in a decades old LDS fundamentalist settlement in Sonora, Mexico. The murders were carried out by ruthless Mexican drug cartel savages.

Reliable open border proponents at the Arizona Republic would prefer we view Mexico through a softly filtered lens. Don’t be conned. This shooting and torching brutality of innocents is reality.

What should be an unfathomable atrocity took place about an hour south of Douglas, Arizona.

U.S. authorities have no way of discerning who is among the hundreds of thousands of Central Americans and Mexicans who have breached our sovereign border and invaded the United States. They have been coached by illegal advocates to claim they are political refugees. Many have criminal histories and brutal gang backgrounds.

Today Tucson is voting on whether to become a “sanctuary city” for illegals.

Nov. 7, 2019: Within days of the slaughter, Arizona Republic reporter Daniel Gonzalez, writing for the never-blame-Mexico-for-anything newspaper, bylines a ludicrous Page One report headlined, “Cartel may have mistakenly fired.” All of the facts, including that the vehicles were miles apart, mothers and children were shot at close range, and then the vehicles were torched, incinerating living infants, point to murderous intent. 


Anti-Trumper Lindsey Graham opportunistically contorts into Trump supporter

November 4, 2019

McMaverick’s inseparable sidekick magically transforms, but can he be trusted?

Republicans are symbolized by the elephant for good reason. We share the animal’s strength, intellect and determination. We also possess long memories, a trait for which the impressive creatures are noted.

These characteristics are relevant in the context of political battles and alliances as they relate to besieged President Trump. Democrats and RINOcrats hammer him daily. Trump antagonist Mitt Romney, who deceivingly courted president-elect Trump, desperate to be named secretary of state, also campaigned with anti-Trump McCain, drawing less than stellar crowds. This Arizona Independent News Network cartoon and report links to a SRAZ post on an abysmal turnout. McCain returned the favor, though he fumblingly introduced Romney (video) as “President Obama.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a McCain devotee, appears to have moderated his stance on President Trump, advocating against the covert proceedings as the dems attempt to invalidate the 2016 election via impeachment.  Many conservatives remain skeptical of Graham’s newfound support of the president he routinely assailed when his loyal partner McCain was still above ground. Bachelor Graham described his relationship with McCain, stating, “It was a political marriage.”

Suddenly Graham, up for reelection in 2020, is a fervent supporter of President Trump. Graham is keenly aware his home state of South Carolina gave all nine of its electoral votes to Donald Trump, who carried the state with 54.9% to Hillary’s 40.7%.

Lest anyone be lulled into thinking Lindsey Graham has done a complete turnaround. This was Graham in December 2015 — 4 short years ago — appearing on CNN.

 Graham accused Donald Trump of being a “race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot, the ISIL Man of the Year, undercutting everything we stand for, empowering our enemy… culminating with…“and you know how you make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell!”

Sens. Graham, McCain, and Romney (elected in Utah, Jan. 2019), joined by now ex-senator Jeff Flake, all publicly stated they would not vote for Trump in 2016. 

Romney and Flake have one other area of significance in common.  Flake had an 18% approval rating in his home state of Arizona, causing him to abandon his campaign for a second senate term. Romney is polling at exactly the same nationally, with only 18 % having a positive image of Romney, according to this NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released Sunday. Romney opposes additional funding for a border wall. Utah is well on its way to becoming a sanctuary state.

Trusting opportunist Lindsey Graham is a fool’s errand.


Extreme leftist running for San Francisco DA

November 2, 2019

Rogue runs for San Francisco prosecutor

Michelle Malkin has done it again. As only she can, she exposes the underbelly of the now fetid city of San Francisco, once a vacation destination.

InRadical Spawn Chesa Boudin: America’s Most Toxic DA Candidate,” Malkin reveals his links to every unsavory character from his terrorist Weather Underground cop-killing parents and their partners-in-crime Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who raised him from infancy after his parents were incarcerated, to his alliances with the Hollywood Trump-haters, culminating with his connections to Globalist billionaire George Soros and his insiders who are shoveling cash into Boudin’s campaign coffers.  In 2016, Politico exposed financier Soros’ clandestine efforts to “overhaul the U.S. criminal justice system,” investing heavily in District Attorney campaigns.

Malkin writes:

“Now Boudin wants to avenge his cop-killing parents by imposing “restorative justice” and “decarceration” policies that will incentivize violent crime and endanger lives in San Francisco and beyond. If you think California is on fire now, just wait until this red diaper baby takes control of the prosecutorial wheel.

The cornerstone of Boudin’s campaign is sabotaging immigration enforcement. He has called for prosecution and imprisonment of ICE and police officers for doing their jobs and vowed to create an “immigrant defense unit” within the DA’s office to “stand up to Trump on immigration.”

These extremist views tug at the damaged heartstrings of Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who has endorsed Boudin in the upcoming Nov. 5th election.

Prosecutors, whether called District or County Attorneys, in their specific jurisdictions, are given the responsibility of keeping communities safe by presenting the government’s evidence stemming from police reports or grand jury proceedings to a judge or jury for a final determination. Their job is not to protect the worst of the worst and give them free rein to re-offend as DA candidate Chesa Boudin pledges to do.
