Jeb Bush runs from his ethnicity to run

April 7, 2015

Phony Jeb caught forging heritage to win Hispanic votes

As he gears up to run for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, Jeb Bush resigned from all of his corporate and non-profit board member positions. He has reportedly been working with a personal trainer, dropping pounds before making his announcement.

But weight isn’t all he’s dropped. His ethnicity is apparently as big a burden as his formerly bulging belly.

Though Jeb Bush speaks Spanish fluently, has a Mexican-born wife, lived in Venezuela for two years, and is a Catholic convert —- he is not Hispanic. Ethnicity is not an interchangeable commodity, but he is apparently so deeply enmeshed in Hispanic culture, he forgot his parents George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush are both bona fide blue-blooded WASPs. Barbara’s ancestors include an early colonist and Franklin Pierce, the 14th president of the United States.

The New York Times obtained Jeb Bush’s 2009 Florida voter registration form that shows he marked ‘Hispanic’ in the field labeled “race/ethnicity.”

Bush received 61 percent of the Hispanic vote in 1998 when he became governor of Florida and nearly as many when he ran for re-election in 2002. But as a pro-amnesty candidate who also supports Common Core, Bush will not appeal to conservatives regardless of what ethnicity he selects on any given day.

In 2012, Democrat Elizabeth Warren ran for a U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts professing to be a Native American —- using recipes copied from the Pow Wow Chow Cookbook in an attempt to substantiate her claim. The easily duped liberals of Massachusetts apparently didn’t care. They elected her anyway.

Will Republicans be as gullible?


Brnovich flies under radar as he caves on illegal enforcement

April 6, 2015

It’s all about $aving taxpayer dollar$, doncha know?

Unless you’re an eagle-eyed reader, you might have missed the latest news from Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich. It was tucked away and hugging the bottom of Page 3 in a travelogue sounding section called “Around Arizona.”.

The Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) couldn’t be more gleeful to report that Brnovich filed a motion on Friday asking a U.S. District Court to dismiss the Ninth U. S. Circuit appeal of a policy charging illegal aliens as co-conspirators with their well-paid coyote transporters as they smuggle themselves into Arizona.  By pulling the appeal, Brnovich will let stand an injunction against enforcing the statute.

In a statement to the newspaper, Brnovich says he is “committed to defending Arizona from federal overreach and enforcing our immigration laws.” Then comes the “but,” which in legalese morphs into “however.”

“However, I also have an obligation to be responsible with taxpayer dollars and defend the state where we are most likely to prevail. That is why I filed for the dismissal of the state’s legal challenge to the human-smuggling portion of SB 1070 today.”

Karen Tumlin, a lawyer with the far-leftist, pro-illegal invasion National Immigration Law Center in California, cheered, “The chapter of the smuggling law is now officially over.” But she noted that litigation continues on others, including the “Show me your papers” statute that requires law-enforcement officials to inquire about the citizenship of people they stop and statutes regarding day laborers and impounding the vehicles of people harboring illegal immigrants. “This is a sign that the state may move away from this litigation,” Tumlin hopefully added.

In an astonishing double standard, The Republic evidenced no reluctance to use scare tactics in editorials and news reports including declaring citizens would be unable to board an airplane without an intrusive national ID card as it promoted legislation on a “Show me your papers” law for American citizens.


Economic disaster hallmark of Obama regime

April 4, 2015

Although Americans have been treated to massaged unemployment numbers and Obama cheerily tells us the forecast is sunny, the most recent figures from his own labor department show 93,175,000 Americans are out of work. Record setting dismal figures are undeniable. Blacks and women have been hit especially hard. The 62.7 percent rate of Americans not in the labor force matches a 37-year low.

Earlier this year, even the left-of-center CNN had its fill. The network ran with this headline after Obama’s claim during his State of the Union address, “Obama says wages are growing. They’re not.”

In March just 126,000 new jobs were added, falling far short of the expected 245,000, and resulting in the worst report since December 2013.

And Obama’s answer to this economic disaster? Open the floodgates to illegals and import more foreign workers to compete with American citizens for ever fewer jobs.

Trusting anything Obama says is risky business. His glib claim that ISIS was a “JV team,” has been proven wrong with disastrous consequences. Just months ago, he pointed to Yemen as a “counterterrorism success story.” Now we read that bodies litter the streets and the president was evacuated as rebels seized the palace. Obama arrogantly puts the world in peril while working out a nuclear enrichment deal with Iran, a country whose leader led a chant of “Death to America” as the negotiations were underway.

Having a shallow, compulsive liar running the USA isn’t working. It’s time to put a conservative Republican in charge.


Obama: Compulsory voting would be “transformative”

March 19, 2015

Latest scheme to expand Dem voting bloc

On the campaign trail, Barack Obama vowed to “fundamentally transform America,” the most triumphant home of freedom and liberty on the planet.

His disturbing words were met with cheers by the ill-informed and poorly educated  crowds. That irrational theme wasn’t just campaign rhetoric as we have seen through his imposition of radical leftist programs and policies that fly in the face of  the Constitution since he first assumed office in Jan. 2009

Now he is hoisting the idea of mandatory voting in the U.S.  Speaking in Cleveland Wednesday, Obama said voting should be a requirement. As an example, he pointed to Australia, where citizens must vote, regardless of their knowledge of the issues or desire to participate in the process.

“If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country,” Obama said, calling it “potentially transformative.” There’s no doubt about that. As millions of prospective Democrats flood the United States, it’s not difficult to see the underlying method to his madness.

Obama used the occasion to tell the gathering that universal voting would “counteract money more than anything.” Those are fascinating views from the man who, according to the Center for Responsive Politics and the Washington Post had a mammoth fundraising mechanism replete with  Hollywood celebrities, top-level bundlers, major financial and healthcare institutions and leftwing bigwigs.

No longer a candidate, Obama appears to have developed a newfound revulsion for such influence. Acting as the hypocrite he is, Obama opposed Citizens United and other court rulings that cleared the way for super PACs and removed campaign spending limits, although he wholeheartedly embraced them in his 2012 re-election campaign. 

In Cleveland, he said he thought it would be “fun” for the U.S. to consider amending the Constitution to change the role that money plays in the electoral system.

Obama’s recent executive actions open the door to enable millions of foreign nationals access to the valid forms of identification required to register to vote, increasing the probability that they would illegally register and participate in our elections. It does happen. According to the election official in this video, “We’re not the police.”


Kids behaving badly? Study offers explanation: You must be an illegal

March 15, 2015

New study explains insecurities, criminal behavior in children of illegals

Nancy Landale is not exactly a name resonating off lips in Arizona, but the results of her latest study delving into the “special insecurities” and their links to “behavioral problems” of children of illegal aliens recently merited a front page report titled, “Fear of having a parent deported may increase risk of behavior issues.“ 

Daniel Gonzalez, who coincidently covers immigration and minority communities at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic), authored the news article. He calls Landale’s study, which provides justification for higher risks of behavior issues compared with children of legal immigrants and U.S. citizens, “groundbreaking.”

Prof. Landale’s research at Penn State focuses on family patterns and health outcomes of racial and ethnic minorities in the United States. She’s been at this for years, as her Curriculum Vitae attests —- currently investigating the health and development of Mexican children of illegals, with an emphasis on links between illegal immigration and assimilation processes, family contexts and multiple dimensions of health. These reports don’t come cheap. They are underwritten by massive research grants. As an example, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development:  “Mexican Children of Immigrants Program Project.” (2009-2016) Total Direct Costs: $3,851,858. Total Costs: $5,158,193.

The funding for these absurd studies ultimately comes out of our pockets. But even in Pennsylvania Nancy is feeling the extra pinch for education, health care, and incarceration —- costs that have obviously increased since this report detailing the $728 million yearly burden to native-born Pennsylvania taxpayers was released in 2009.

Previous generations of legal immigrants who came to America via Ellis Island would have been appalled to have little Giuseppe, Sean, Helmut, Abraham, Miklos or Casimir do less than their best in school and certainly would not have given them cover for chronic bad behavior or criminality. That change in attitude might be the reason the legal immigrants succeeded. They knew America provided opportunity and they expected their children to take advantage of the rare gifts they were being given. The families worked hard, educated their children and enthusiastically assimilated into Americans.

The $113 billion annual drain said to be the high cost of illegal immigration is also substantially higher since this 2010 report (revised in 2011),The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers.”

Obama’s exec. amnesty displaces jobless black citizens

March 8, 2015

Black Americans harmed by amnesty for illegals

On the 50th anniversary of the civil rights march in Selma, Alabama, the unemployment rate among black Americans is more than twice that of white Americans (4.7%) and nearly twice the national average ( 5.5%).

The latest statistics released Friday, by the U.S. Department of Labor show the high rate of unemployment among Black Americans at 10.4 percent

Whether the overall numbers are accurate or actual unemployment figures are misleadingly massaged by the Obama administration as Jim Clifton, CEO of Gallup, opined last month —- calling the numbers “The Big Lie“ —- there is no mistaking the figures are grim for those black voters who turned out a 96 percent vote for the first black president.

In January 2013, we posted, “Illogical coalition shills for illegal immigration,” questioning why blacks would join Hispanics pushing for amnesty and promote increased job protections for illegals, as they suffer massive unemployment?

The overriding question is, why would black American citizens, who have disproportionately high rates of unemployment both locally and nationally, be among those encouraging more illegals to be given legal status — allowing them to compete for jobs these citizens need and should have?

What kind of illogical thought process would cause activists within the black community to promote an even less hospitable employment atmosphere for their own brethren struggling in a still stagnant economy?

Even more alarming is the astronomical unemployment rate among black youth, ages 16 -19, which stands at a staggering 30 percent. This Feb. 2012 Bureau of Labor Statistics report shows the numbers have been as high as 49.1%. How do these young Americans benefit from the importation of foreign illegal workers and why would Barack Obama, who pledged to fundamentally transform the United States of  America attempt to do it on the backs of his own ethnic group who are American citizens?

In his speech Saturday in Selma, Obama declared, We’re the slaves who built the White House and the economy of the South….” Today pro-amnesty advocates will push the false narrative that amnesty for illegal invaders is the new civil rights movement.

It is not.


Amnesty deceit: AZ’s U.S.senators compulsive liars

March 6, 2015

McCain and Kyl brazenly told pre-election lies — Flake later joined the trickery 

Amid the dire news bombarding us from virtually every corner we offer this bit of sardonic levity as we take a trip back in time. Just five years ago in 2010, Jon Kyl, then an Arizona senator, appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation to discuss birthright citizenship. 

The headline, “Kyl: Illegal Aliens’ Kids Shouldn’t Be Citizens,” even uses the now verboten term “illegal aliens.” Kyl said that Congress should hold hearings to look into denying citizenship to illegal aliens’ children born in the United States, as the fight over illegal immigration widened to include the “birthright” issue.

John McCain’s compliant shadow Sen. Lindsey Graham, (R-SC), said he was considering introducing a Constitutional amendment to repeal a provision of the 14th Amendment, which guarantees citizenship to anyone born within U.S. borders. Kyl cunningly admitted he suggested to Graham that Congress hold hearings, “and hear first from the constitutional experts to at least tell us what the state of the law on that proposition is.” 

A newly landed Martian tuning into the news program could be forgiven for mistaking the slickster Kyl for a conservative.

Excerpts:

“The 14th Amendment [has been] interpreted to provide that if you are born in the United States, you are a citizen no matter what,” Kyl said. “So the question is, if both parents are here illegally, should there be a reward for their illegal behavior?”

Kyl configured the issue using these words, “illegal aliens taking jobs that Americans want; immigrants posing a burden on the state in the form of education, medical care and welfare benefits; and crime.”  He even bickered with host Harry Smith who claimed that crime has had a negative correlation with the arrival of illegals. “Crime in Phoenix, for instance, is down significantly over the last couple of years,” Smith said.

“That’s a gross generalization,” Kyl shot back. “Property crimes are up. Certain violent crimes on certain parts of the citizenry are up. Phoenix is a very large source of kidnapping. It’s called the kidnapping capital of the United States because the illegal immigrants who are brought to Phoenix for distribution throughout the country are held in drop houses.”

Kyl said the law is not discriminatory. “But if you live here in Arizona you’ll appreciate the fact that we have a great tradition, particularly with our neighbor to the south, Mexico. It’s not a matter of being anti-Hispanic. It’s a matter of wanting to enforce the law.”

POLITICO noted John McCain backed altering the Constitution’s 14th Amendment.

The Hill covered Kyl’s appearance, accurately reporting the lawmakers’ statements signal that the GOP was striking a tougher rhetorical posture on illegal immigration before the November elections.

The Arizona Republic covered both Kyl’s and McCain’s newfound stances. Though the duo led the 2007 amnesty scheme known as “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” including a pathway to citizenship for illegals, they brazenly reconfigured themselves to con Arizona voters. As McCain faced reelection, he imitated a border chameleon —- until the ballots were counted.  Then he reverted to his former amnesty position.

As Jeff Flake campaigned to replace the retiring Jon Kyl in 2011, he assumed the identical position, lying through his pearly whites and incurring the wrath of the pro-amnesty local newspaper. 

The only constants are the lies.
