Pres. Trump funds border wall despite Dems

May 11, 2019

U.S. national security given preference by Pres. Trump

After being repeatedly thwarted by congressional Democrats in his requests for funding to secure our national border, President Donald Trump has resorted to an end run to halt the relentless surges of hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens breaching our border. Arriving in caravans, invaders from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras have been aided by Mexico, granting them unprecedented access to reach our border.

The Pentagon has announced it is reallocating $1.5 billion to help pay for construction of 80 miles of wall at the U.S.-Mexican border.

The money is made available from savings in numerous defense programs, including those earmarked for Afghanistan’s army and other foreign security forces. In March $1 billion was transferred from Army personnel budget accounts to support wall construction.

The combined total of $2.5 billion is in response to President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border. The President  has vetoed Democrats attempts to reverse the emergency declaration.

An enraged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who has a secured San Francisco mansion in the district from which she runs, but spends much of her time at her secluded and protected Napa Valley estate and vineyard was not embarrassed to  issue a statement.  It said in part, “The President’s sham emergency declaration and unlawful transfers of funds have undermined our democracy, contravening the vote of the bipartisan Congress, the will of the American people and the letter of the Constitution.”

Democrats are known for hypocrisy. This reveal shows their bonding to Second Amendment restrictions doesn’t actually apply to them.

Pres. Trump and economy soar & NRA Update

April 27, 2019

NRA meeting showcases Pres. Trump and V.P. Pence

Friday was a booming day for the stock market, as both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite indexes closed at record highs. The economy, exceeding expectations, grew at a 3.2% annual rate in the first quarter. 

It was also a winning day for President Trump, as he and Vice President Mike Pence rallied Second Amendment supporters at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum / Convention held this year in Indianapolis, Indiana, where they were repeatedly greeted with cheers from the massive crowd. Billed as “America’s largest freedom celebration,” the convention draws tens of thousands of firearm enthusiasts each year.

Trump used the occasion to announce the withdrawal of the U.S. signature from the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty, in response to concerns from gun owners that it could impinge on Americans’ Second Amendment rights. It was signed in 2013 by Barack Obama, but never ratified.

“Under my administration we will never surrender American sovereignty to anyone, we will never allow foreign bureaucrats to trample on your Second Amendment freedom and that is why my administration will never ratify the U.N. trade treaty,” President Trump unequivocally stated.

Among the speakers addressing the gathering was U.S. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), who survived a June 2017 assassination attempt on the lives of Republican members and staffers practicing for the annual ‘Congressional Baseball Game for Charity,’ scheduled for the following day. Before opening fire, in the vicious act that nearly killed Congressman Scalise, the left-wing assailant specifically asked if it was the Republican team practicing. Watch Steve Scalise’s speech here.

Like President Ronald Reagan, who was shot and seriously wounded along with press secretary James Brady, a Secret Service Officer, and a D.C. Police Officer, Rep. Scalise continues to defend our constitutionally protected Second Amendment freedoms.

Scalise has said the experience reinforced his support for gun rights. “I was a strong supporter of the Second Amendment before the shooting,” he said, “and frankly, as ardent as ever after the shooting in part because I was saved by people who had guns.

“They saved my life. But they also saved the lives of every other member. There were over a dozen members of Congress and staffers who would have been executed. That was the intention of the shooter.”

Defend Freedom. Join the NRA today.

Fox News reports Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president and public face of the National Rifle Association, alleges the organization’s board president, Oliver North, is trying to extort him into stepping down.

This is the 3-page letter Wayne LaPierre sent to the Members of the NRA Board.

For longtime members of the Second Amendment protection organization, LaPierre is the organization. We wish him well in this unfortunate internecine feud.


Pres. Trump‘s new border strategy shows he’s crazy as a fox

April 13, 2019

After being repeatedly thwarted in his efforts to obtain adequate funding for a much needed wall on our southern border, President Donald Trump has tweeted his acknowledgement that he is considering sending the hundreds of thousands of illegal invaders from Central America to sanctuary cities within the United States.

“Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing illegal immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Today, we direct our readers to a cogent editorial in Investor’s Business Daily, titled,Yes, Democrats Are Now The Party Of Open Borders.”  Its wisdom was prophetic, since it was written prior to the most recent surge of caravans of invaders from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras being given access to the United States by our “good neighbor” Mexico. They claim to be refugees, fleeing untenable conditions in their home countries, but don’t seek asylum as they arrive in Mexico — whose obvious purpose is to facilitate the invasion.

The Center for Immigration Studies lists Sanctuary cities, counties and states.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a far left Democrat, said, “it’s just another notion that is unworthy of the presidency of the United States and disrespectful of the challenges that we face, as a country, as a people, to address who we are, a nation of immigrants.”

Pelosi, who lives behind a secure wall in her sanctuary city hometown of San Francisco, omits the fact that previous generations of immigrants arrived here legally, were processed at Ellis Island and gratefully became Americanized, learning English, and taking on our history and culture as their own. Those leaving repression did not march through American cities waving the flags of the countries they left, access benefits and continue to engage in high rates criminality while showing contempt for the United States of America.

The ironically inconsistent headline in this morning’s edition of Arizona’s pro-illegal and open border newspaper?  “Trump still might use migrants against Dems.” 


Candace Owens brilliantly assesses Democrat policies

April 10, 2019

You won’t see this on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC….

Candace Owens commanded the attention (video) of the House Judiciary Committee meeting where she was an invited guest Tuesday. Speaking on the topic of white nationalism and hate crimes, Owens, a black conservative, accused Democrats on the panel of focusing on “fear-mongering, power and control” rather than on the issue of racism. As the director of communications for Turning Point USA  she’s honed her public speaking skills, making her appearance at the hearing spellbinding. Arizona is well represented with 17 chapters throughout the state.

Owens emphasized that the country needs to talk more about what she identified as ‘harassment of conservatives of color. ‘”We’re not talking enough about political hatred in this country.”

At age 29, Owens, an ardent supporter of President Trump, is a compelling public speaker. She has been working to persuade black Americans to leave the Democrat Party, which counts their votes as a given, doing nothing to earn their support.

“We need to condemn all types of hate speech,” she stated.

Owens reminded lawmakers about a “double standard” that she says allows criticism of black conservatives, Christians and Jews.

AZ’s U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs (CD-5), is a member of the House Judiciary Committee before which Candace Owens appeared. This is an example of his bold leadership as he recently spoke about another House member who has repeatedly accused Jewish Americans of holding dual loyalties, a malicious anti-Semitic slur that predates Adolf Hitler.


Fmr. Sen. Steve Pierce replaces perv Stringer

April 4, 2019

That’s obviously not our best headline, since no one with any degree of principle would be a replacement for disgraced child rapist, pedophile, and child porn aficionado David Stringer. Though Stringer maintained he served no time for his crimes, he accepted a plea deal, including five years probation on the charges. Stringer resigned March 27, when the hideous facts became irrefutable…and got even worse, as reported by the local newspaper.

Prescott rancher Steve Pierce, 69, has been selected by the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors to complete the House term. Pierce was previously a state senator from 2009-2017 and served as senate president from 2011-2012. He has indicated he will serve out the rest of the term, but will not run for election.

Make no mistake. Pierce is neither a fiscal nor social conservative. During his previous term, he was a supporter of expanding the Medicaid provisions of Obamacare, not a popular Republican position.

Former Arizona Secretary of State and senate president, Ken Bennett who challenged Doug Ducey as a Clean Elections candidate in 2018, would have been our preference. He adamantly opposed the expansion, saying, “Obamacare is the biggest job killer and destroyer of small business in history. And the entire U.S. has it because of Gov. Ducey and Sen. McCain.” His full quote is here.

In 2014, after supporting SB1062, known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Steve Pierce described his action by saying, “I screwed up,” after getting heat from the LBGTQ community and the ACLU. Gov. Brewer also caved to the loudest voices and vetoed the bill that had mainstream support.

Fortunately we now have conservative leadership at the AZ GOP following the January election of Dr. Kelli Ward as state chairman and a reliable supporter of President Donald Trump.  Join the team.  Become a precinct committeeman.

It’s April Fools’ Day: Don’t let Hiral Tipirneni fool you

April 1, 2019

Lying, losing, leftist returns to try another Congressional con

The Tax Foundation created Tax Freedom Day as a way of calculating how many days Americans need to work to pay for government services. 109 days into this year, we’ve earned enough to cover our share of the tab.

In Arizona, where our sales taxes are among the nation‘s highest, we don’t reach tax freedom day until next Tuesday, April 9. That fact no doubt strikes you as excessive. But a carpet-bagging congressional candidate doesn’t think so.

We share this important information because the Democrat retread candidate, who lost two previous congressional races last year (one was a special election after U.S. Rep. Trent Frank’s resignation) challenging Republican U.S. Rep. Debbie Lesko, is back again. Realizing that running in Arizona’s Congressional District 8 was a losing proposition, Hiral Tipirneni is now challenging U.S. Rep. David Schweikert, in CD 6, where she is not even a resident. This is not technically illegal, though it smacks of opportunism and raises the question of motivation.

Prior to being elected to Congress in 2010, Republican Schweikert was an elected state legislator and Maricopa County Treasurer. He currently serves on the powerful House Ways and Means Tax and Trade Subcommittees, and is known as an effective numbers cruncher. His Issues Page defines his priorities. Senator Mike Lee, chairman of the Joint Economic Committee (JEC), announced Congressman David Schweikert will lead House Republicans on JEC.

A typical big spending liberal who desires to expand Medicare to cover all, Tipirneni’s technique for further bloating government programs is raising the amount of withholding taxes. If you’re conversant in Tipirneniese, you’ll understand that the slippery Democrat doesn’t think workers are taxed enough.

When she ran in the West Valley’s CD 8, Tipirneni’s campaign ads depicted her wearing medical scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck, contrived to give the impression she was a working physician. Conveniently omitted was the fact that she hasn’t practiced medicine since 2007, when she was successfully sued for malpractice. No longer practicing medicine, the dedicated leftist made $millions promoting Obamacare. The patient she maltreated is no longer above ground to vote against Hiral Tipirneni, but if you live in District 6, you can. (Zoom in to see the boundaries.)
