Pres. Trump outrageously ridiculed by hypocrite pope

January 22, 2017

The word populist has been getting quite a workout since Donald Trump’s presidential campaign began gaining steam.  After his stunning victory over his 16 Republican primary rivals, the word came into vogue as both a compliment and a pejorative. Those on the left darkly refer to a populist insurgency that brought him to the presidency.  The political haughties who are still reeling from the grassroots surge that put Trump in the White House, menacingly warn that such political figures gain advantage by drawing  support predominately from angry men, the less educated, and the economically marginalized. Not far below the surface are the unconscionable comparisons to the 1930’s rise of Nazi mass murderer Adolf Hitler.

Now Pope Francis, noted for his verbal commitment to the Communist/Marxist doctrine of wealth redistribution — “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need” — is drawing parallels between President Trump and Hitler, as he warns against populism and saviors like Hitler.

In a lengthy interview with Spanish newspaper El Pais conducted as Donald Trump was being sworn in as U.S. President, Francis also condemned the idea of using walls and barbed wire to keep out foreigners.

“Hitler did not steal power,” the brazenly unsubtle pope said. “He was elected by his people and then he destroyed his people.”

Once again the pope exposes himself as a hypocrite, living inside the 50-foot high, ten-foot thick walled Vatican City, amid opulence and filled with priceless treasures, with its Swiss Guard that function as the Vatican’s private military force.

During the presidential campaign Francis ridiculously accused Trump of “not being Christian” for vowing to build a border wall to protect our sovereign nation from invading foreign nationals flooding into the United States not only from Mexico, Central and South America, but from terror sponsoring nations. Presumably Francis is also able to see into the hearts of others and discern the depth of their faith.

Pope Benedict XVI was shuttled out of the papacy at breakneck speed in 2013, the first pope to “resign” in 600 years. He is missed.

Francis, who opted to visit with the Communist Castro brothers in Cuba prior to addressing Congress last year, needs to stay out of U.S. politics. His meddling is neither “fitting nor proper” to borrow a few words from Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.


Sunday wakeup call from prominent religious leader

January 15, 2017

Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe’s dominant religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.

He added, the number of Eastern Europeans arriving over the past few years has also hit the quality of life for native Italians, “We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash,” the archbishop said. “We need policies that take care of Italians first: our young people and the unemployed.”

“We have a weak Christian faith,” he stated. “The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty. Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.”

Regardless of your religion, this Breitbart report is a wake-up call.

The Gatestone Institute has been covering Europe‘s migrant crisis. These are just some of the articles and videos that address the growing problem.


John McCain’s latest border security deceit

January 14, 2017

McCain’s entire career has been marked by partnering with the most liberal Democrats — along with Jon Kyl and now Jeff Flake — to promote amnesty for illegals. The most recent charade was the infamous Gang of Eight, orchestrated by the AZ duo and their leftist Senate cohorts Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Robert Menendez and Michael Bennet. They were joined by by Republicrats Lindsey Grahamnesty and double talker Marco Rubio.

A recent press release from John McCain’s senate office contains a joint self-congratulatory I’ll-slap-your-back-if-you-slap-mine routine with AZ CD 2 Rep. Martha McSally.

Since the issue is about the duo’s Border Security Technology Accountability Act, conservative’s antenna should be rising, since we know McCain has long been in the forefront of amnesty proposals  — not implementing security to stop illegal invaders. The deceptive press release is up on his website, which we have no reason to link to. The bill can be read here.

John McCain is working to deflect his now admitted involvement in the effort to dismantle President-elect Donald Trump before he is even inaugurated, by delivering vile and unverified allegations with shady origins against Trump to FBI director James Comey.  McCain still hasn’t gotten over his colossal loss to Barack Obama and his visceral hatred/jealousy of Donald Trump capturing the American imagination has consumed him. McCain withdrew his iffy endorsement of the Republican nominee. Jeff Flake appeared wherever a camera would train on him, to declare he wasn’t voting for Trump. That means both of Arizona’s marginal senators, either by acts of omission or commission,  voted for Hillary Clinton.

Returning to the Border Security Technology Accountability Act, we’ve been down this path before. McSally introduced a bill with the same title July 27, 2015. And technology has been tried and failed since the days of the first Homeland Security chief, Judge Michael Chertoff’s efforts to get a 28-mile  “virtual fence” that pledged to use radar and surveillance cameras. That was during  the George W. Bush administration, which also gave a wink and a nod to illegals crossing into the U.S.

It was a costly farce then and it will be a costly farce now.  Donald Trump is committed to a border wall and so are most Americans who were moved to support him on that compelling issue. SRAZ wrote,” Virtual fence is a virtual flop,” in April 2008. Earlier, in Feb. 2008, we covered,Virtual fence “looks good” to Homeland Insecurity Chief Chertoff,” regarding the technical malfunctions, glitches and postponements carrying $ multimillion price tags. This postand we’ve got a bridge to sell you,” which includes a list of just some of the terror sponsoring nations breaching our border plainly illustrates nothing has changed.

Believe these practiced liars at your own peril.


Repeating lies doesn’t make them truth

Education and Donald Trump top the AZ Republic’s scams

We’re only one week into the new year and President-elect Donald Trump has not quite two weeks before his inauguration, but that doesn’t stop the folks at the Arizona Republic from engaging in deceptive use of the English language.

The newspaper’s scheme brings to mind Winston Smith, the protagonist in George Orwell’s best seller “1984.”  A clerk in the government’s Ministry of Truth Records Department, Smith’s job was to rewrite historical documents to align with the constantly changing current political deception. Newspeak, a reduced language became the tool to limit free thought and concepts posing a threat to the totalitarian regime. Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct was classified as “thought crime,” “crime think,” or “doublethink.” Smith’s work included manipulating facts, revising newspaper articles and doctoring photographs to remove “unpersons,” the term used to describe people who had fallen out of favor with the party.

In these cases however, it is not a regime or party but the newspaper itself that engages in the deception. In advance of today’s State of the State address, Sunday’s edition used the front page to take Gov. Doug Ducey to task on the issue of education. The headline: “With his term half over, Ducey under pressure to go big.” Would the liberals pumping out these ludicrous stories have referred Democrat Gov. Janet Napolitano using those words two years into her first term?  How about Barack Obama?  Not a chance.  They saw two more years and a second term ahead for the Democrats.

Sunday’s edition also carried an editorial, “Ariz. Schools need real help,” in which they quote their own reporter as well as cite left-wing polling data. It’s not a mystery that subscriptions to this rag are on life support.

Education has become a hot issue for the educrats. Not only is it underfunded, it is underfunded. This is not a typo, just making a point.  It has become the norm for school districts to continually hold bond override elections, “for the children” or to “get more money into the classroom” —  specifically the teacher’s paycheck. The Arizona Lottery was sold to voters in Nov. 1980 as a means of putting millions yearly into education. The City of Phoenix has a Democrat mayor who ran on making education a priority, despite the fact that elected city officials play no role in shaping education policy — typically the realm of the state government and school districts. Greg Stanton has moved past those vague promises, now throwing his hat in the ring for the under-the-radar post of Secretary of State, a frequent backdoor route to the governor’s office.

Voters are getting tired of having to live within their means while the school districts continually cry out for more money. As a result, ballot overrides, once considered sacrosanct, have begun failing.

Proposition 123 a massive increase in education funding, pushed by Gov. Ducey, was a nail-biter for several days, since the vote margins were razor-thin. The final result was 50.8 percent in favor to 49.2 percent opposed to the measure. State Treasurer Jeff DeWit was an adamant opponent, saying there was ample money to fund education without raiding the State Land Trust Fund or raising property taxes.

Sunday’s edition of the newspaper also rolled out a commentary by propagandist Linda Valdez, who never saw an illegal she didn’t prefer to a U.S. Citizen. Her rant includes these odd words: “Millions of families in the United States are living in fear because of Donald Trump’s rise to power.” Apparently she missed the fact that he is not an apparition, but was elected to the presidency of the United States.  Then she pulls out the old canard, that these (illegal) families “face catastrophic separations.“ The oft-repeated lie is outrageous. Nothing stops parents returning to their homeland from taking their American-born children with them. She describes a grandnephew of hers — “a child” —too fearful to sleep.

Nowhere does she mention the hordes of children sent into the U.S. alone and under deplorable conditions by their own parents, who know they will be links to the outlandish practice of chain migration also known as family reunification. Valdez conveniently forgets Jose who illegally crosses into the U.S. for work, sending money home to Maria and the ninos, until his new honey becomes pregnant and Jose forgets about his old family south of the border. How about a column on that practice, Linda?

 


Yes, we can pay for the wall

January 8, 2017

WaPO refuses to allow the word “Obamacare” to appear in print, but calls national border security, “Trump’s wall”

The double standard is laughable. The Washington Post insists on calling problem plagued Obamacare the “Affordable Care Act,” to remove the onus from Barack Obama. Yet here in Arizona the costs have risen an astronomical 116%, taking it far from the realm of “affordable.’

So it is when you buy ink by the barrel, as a wise observer once noted.

The newspaper, which might as well declare itself an arm of the DNC for its blatant liberal bias, tries to configure the Republican majority House and Senate at odds with itself over “the party’s deeply held desire to rein in government spending in conflict with its long-standing goal of cracking down on illegal immigration and toughening border security.”

The WaPo oddly refers to the construction project that resonated with voters as “Trump’s wall” and disingenuously ponders how the project will be funded.  The newspaper echoes the words of Vicente Fox, Mexico’s former president, who insultingly questions the authenticity of Trump’s election, and then calls “Trump’s wall” a “racist monument.”

On the campaign trail, President-elect Trump said he would get Mexico to pay for the construction. There are many ways of accomplishing that fiscal feat. We offer a simple one. Warn the recipients that the gravy train is screeching to a halt for those aiding in the invasion of the United States.

FY 2017 U.S. foreign aid committed to Mexico $134,664,000.

The seven countries of Central America: Belize: $1,250,000; Guatemala: $145,105,000; El Salvador: $87,982,000; Honduras: $105,655,000; Nicaragua: $14,800,000; Costa Rica: $1,825,000; and Panama: $3,200,000

Then add in: Dominican Republic: $22,481,000 and Haiti: $218,050,000. And would you believe? American taxpayers even pony up for the Communist dictatorship of Cuba to the tune of $15,000,000

We have not even checked out the vast amounts of foreign aid directed to South American countries in 2017 which also funnel their citizens to the U.S. Withholding or drastically curtailing it will go a long way toward loosening up money to pay for the wall.

Of major importance are the $ billions in “remittance funds” sent back to their homeland by foreign nationals illegally living in the U.S., according to this 2016 General Accounting Office study to congress, which says “remittances have become an important and stable source of funds that exceeds revenues from exports of goods.” The transfer of our cash “can also be used to launder proceeds from different types of criminal activities, including drug trafficking and human smuggling, through methods such as structuring.” The high reporting threshold of $3,000 lets individuals send broken-up payments without raising questions. This transfer of our wealth needs to be heavily taxed or stopped.

Breitbart reports remittances to Mexico rose 25% after Trump’s election.

It’s past time to rein in this sapping of our resources. In these perilous times, we need to rebuild our military, invest in our infrastructure and secure our border.


The specter of Joe Arpaio looms large at MCSO

January 5, 2017

Is there actually a “new sheriff” in town?

Many residents of Maricopa County were disappointed by the election night news that Sheriff Joe Arpaio lost his seventh reelection bid.  The popular career law enforcement official had served the people of Maricopa County ably for an unprecedented 6 4-year terms. But it was Arpaio’s commitment to actually enforcing the law that made him the punching bag for the daily newspaper, which never saw an illegal alien it didn’t prefer to Arizona citizens.

Checking out the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) website we got a much-needed chuckle.  The staff of Paul Penzone — the incoming sheriff who received funding from radical globalist, multi-billionaire and open borders proponent George Soros* — has failed in its attempt to do a thorough cleansing of its Home Page.

The first photo is of the Sheriff’s Office building. Second is a “Mission Statement,” and a list of “Values and Expectations From Ourselves and Our Employees” Our favorite comes up next with the depiction of two deputies standing before metal paneled doors, with the inscription instructing “Pull forward to yellow line to activate door.” Emblazoned across the door in bold, all caps, yellow letters are the words SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO —- making it all too obvious Team Penzone isn’t ready for prime time.

* Find out more about Soros at Discover the Networks, A Guide to the Political Left.

Politico reported on George Soros’ behind the scenes efforts to single handedly overhaul the U.S. justice system, including involvement in the elections of sheriffs and district or county attorneys with his infusions of $ millions.

Then remind yourself that this is the man who brought us Paul Penzone.


Another McMoney train needs help pulling out of station

December 22, 2016

Stripper Gypsy Rose Lee was known to have learned early on in her burlesque career that, “You gotta have a gimmick.”  John McCain obviously takes that advice seriously.

The octogenarian who was just reelected to another 6-year term last month is already trying to fill his coffers with another “gimmick.” 

McCain has learned well from his money-making machine friend Hillary Clinton, whom he has described as a “rock star.” Besides his McCain Foundation and the McCain Institute, there is the “Country First PAC” that needs cash infusions, too — ostensibly to elect conservatives. If you believe that, naiveté has trumped your better judgment.

Still McCain would be the first to tell us, he can’t do it alone.  He needs you to pitch in and fork over your fair share, though he knows it won’t be on the same level as the $1 million his Institute received from the government of Saudi Arabia.

Too much is never enough for John McCain. And electing conservatives is definitely not on his agenda.  In fact, even at the local precinct level in his home state, through his operatives, he has worked tirelessly to purge them from the party ranks after he was embarrassingly censured by Republican elected state committeemen in 2014. Former Sen. Jon Kyl engaged in the same purging shenanigans in 2012.

The only way these obsessive antics will end is by ridding ourselves of the source.  You’ll have the opportunity when amnesty proponent Jeff (Mc) Flake comes up for reelection in 2018.
